The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims His handiwork.” Psalm 19:1
The stars in the night sky profess the Splendor and the Glory of God. They reveal His immense Power and Majesty. It is God Almighty who has set the sun, moon, and stars in place. The heavens testify of God’s divine power. God is a God of perfect and precise order. He has given us the sun, moon, and stars as signs to order time.
“And God said, ‘Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years,” Genesis 1:14
God created the stars with a specific purpose, yet many look to them for the answers to their lives through the use of astrology. Astrology is an ancient form of divination (fortune telling/witchcraft), which is forbidden by God. If He has asked us to stay away from something, given us warning about it, and commanded us not to do it, then it is because He Loves us and knows the harm it will cause in our lives. We must seek God through the Bible and prayer, not the stars, if it is truly truth we desire.
Just as a good father will protect his children from harm, God is our Heavenly Father who protects His children. When we choose to disobey His word we sin, and with sin there are always consequences. Astrology and the reading of horoscopes, even if done in fun, opens a door for Satan to work havoc in a persons life. Since horoscopes involve divination we willingly open ourselves up to demonic deception when we read them. God gives protection to those who Love Him, but when we disobey Him we leave ourselves open to demonic attack.
Though many feel there is no harm in reading a horoscope, God says differently and He commands us to steer clear of them completely. Don’t be deceived, this is no small matter. Several times in the history of Israel, the people fell into the sin of worshiping the stars, and each time it brought God’s judgement upon them. We should be looking to God for guidance, not horoscopes.
“Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is an abomination to the LORD; because of these same detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you.” Deuteronomy 18:10-12
Do not be deceived by the temptations of the world, for they lead to destruction. We are living in a time which is progressively increasing in deception. Nothing can compare to the joy of knowing your life, and your eternity are secure through Jesus.
