There is so much about God that we are not privy to, but when he opens our eyes, it’s like a view we’ve never seen. Did you know that the stars tell the story about Jesus and gives us the signs of the times? When the Bible refers to signs in the heavens, most often, it’s referring to the constellations. It’s like a connect-the-dots assignment when we were in grade school, but this assignment is from God; he created them and they tell a story. Don’t be fooled by astrology, that’s a tool of the devil, and he will use whatever he can to sully what God has commissioned, but biblical astronomy was sanctioned by God.
When I was in junior high, I was interested in the constellations, but as I grew into a teenager, I forgot how wonderful it was. When I get away from the city lights and can see the night sky, I think I’ll revisit my childhood, and play connect-the-dots with the stars again, and see if I can understand the stories God points out in the scriptures. I won’t undertake it alone; I will find a reputable person to follow that has already sought the answers from a biblical perspective. This is yet another way God gives us to keep our attention upon him.
Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. Matthew 24:30
