And now the not so obvious: The stars in the heavens are talking about all of this in ways that are lost on most of us, simply because we are out of touch with some of the first things God ever created. Day 1 of creation is about time, and day 3 is about the heavens that tell the story of time. In other words, to see time, you have to look up. Denying that the stars should be observed for this purpose is akin to denying that we need trees and other plants for food. It’s sorta that important – but maybe even more so since the stars (and time) came before the land, trees, and food.
Before we get into that though, let me go back to the obvious conversation. For the record, I really don’t want any part of the discussion on gay marriage for two big reasons.
The first has to do with my faith. Since I unashamedly believe the story of the redemption of mankind as chronicled in the Bible and in my own first-hand experience, I know that a lot that goes on in the world is not at all what we were created for. Working in dingy factories, getting sick, and sexual preferences that miss the mark are all in the same category to me. While I’m at it, why don’t I just add divorce to the list of “marriage” issues that miss the mark?
Now, I’m not saying any of that to condemn factories, people with health problems, or those that have gone through divorce. I’m just stating the obvious: we need to finish the story of redemption. All things that miss the mark are in the same category to me, and I’m not about to take up a crusade against one or the other. My crusade is about finishing this story of redemption and moving on to immortal, perfect life. Condemning homosexuality and yet tolerating divorce seems really illogical to me, in the light of that reality.
My second reason is this: the world and its systems are trying, rather desperately, to push me into this fight. The T.V. screams the issues and talking points of the world system at me. The government follows suit and presses those same issues. The whole system of this world is used to pushing the buttons of those who believe the redemption message and then watching them react and dance to the song the system picked out.
I’m just not interested in flying mortal flags. I really don’t care what they are. My citizenship is in heaven.
As I mentioned before, there’s something else to see in the affairs of this world, and that’s how connected they are to the motions taking place above our heads every day. Take for example the constellations in the zodiac. Each one a picture of God’s plan. Each one a celebration of immortal, perfect life. Now, let’s focus on the constellation, Gemini. Gemini (the twins) is a picture of two people in a perfect, symmetrical relationship. Right off the bat, it makes us think of God and Man, before the fall in Genesis. Back then, Adam was a perfect reflection of God. That’s what it means to be made in God’s image.
We can also look to Adam and his wife to see yet another perfect, symmetrical relationship. She was taken from Adam’s side, and the two were a lot like the “twins” in Gemini since they came from the exact same genetic stock. Now, when we see Gemini, or better yet when the sun is in Gemini, making it the month of that sign, perhaps we can take part in a celebration of God’s image, marriage, perfect covenant, relationship, and so on.
So, if God is celebrating the original condition of perfect humanity, demonstrated in a man and woman in perfect covenant, what do you think the enemy is celebrating?
Furthermore, it should come as no surprise that the Supreme Court of this land makes its decisions on marriage between June 20th and July 20th, during the sign of Gemini.
This happened back in 2013 too, when the courts ruled in favor of same sex marriage. Do you think there’s even a chance of that being coincidental?
But there’s more. While the sun was in Gemini, Jupiter and Venus were dancing closer together, until their moment of conjunction. There is something undeniably sexual about this, as Jupiter is very masculine, and Venus is very feminine. That’s not something for us to shy away from, since sex was fashioned into creation when things were perfect. All that to say, Heaven is likely celebrating perfect sex at this moment too. And if Heaven is celebrating sex – of the kind Adam and his wife enjoyed in the Garden – then guess what the enemies of perfection are celebrating?
Please don’t think for a moment that I’m back in the system, marching to the tune of a pied piper who tells me what to be upset about. I’m just taking this opportunity to show how much the stars and their courses are telling the story. To me, this is the bigger issue altogether because the stars are pointing to much more than a month of marriage rulings. There are things occurring in the sky this year and in the years to come that point to those issues I mentioned before – immortality and perfect life.
For the moment though, I would think it enough if we could see that the world system is completely in step with the courses and motions of the heavens, and yet we, who are God’s people, the people of the redemption, seem to hold it as an afterthought or an occult issue. Yet the observation of the stars for signs and seasons (direction and time) were fashioned by the Creator Himself into a perfect creation.
Look up. See time and the story of redemption as we were meant to. Let’s celebrate with all of Heaven the immortal and perfect part of this story.
