The LORD merely spoke, and the heavens were created. He breathed the word, and all the stars were born. Psalms 33:6
It was dark as the Spirit hovered over the deep, the darkness was separated from the light, and there was night and day, the first day of creation. And God said they were good. When the night was coming, on the fourth day, after more creating, He saw a blanket of black sky, deep, dark, purple and blue knew as the sun He created began to set, He knew just as the day needed a sun, so the night needed a moon, and then He breathed and all the stars were born.
Baby stars, nebulas, and comets, constellations began to form and galaxies came in to existence, all from a God inspired spoken word, He told the Spirit and out of His very breath the very heavens vast and expanse would come into being, and since there were no calendars, they were for signs and seasons, and did you know the whole plan of God was laid out in them, not astrology, but astronomy. Stars simply rolled of the tongue of the Almighty, like His words, they spun into space. There was the Father at work in all His glory.
It was known by the patriarch and taught to others, it was not until the time of Nimrod, when God confounded the languages, that it became a pagan and corrupt teaching. Strange, those people were under a wicked leader and in agreement and it is so hard to get people to agree, when they have God.
I have often wondered at the night sky, it is so hot in the summers that is a pleasant change to be out at night, I wrote some stories and a friend put one on her blog, she said it was whimsical. I thought that was a great compliment. Perhaps, God is a little whimsical, why He breathed stars. He knew I would write about them a lot one day. It is fun to stand there and attempt to count them, I can’t even name some of them, I had to learn the moon phases one.
Can you even imagine standing on the moon and seeing them from there? I usually miss the moons that are predicted, but I like looking at the stars, I wish I had a telescope. In Atlanta, I could see the skyline, the stars and fireworks, I don’t think I looked much at the stars then, but I learned His Word and was in awe of Him that He breathed stars.
Moving a little further from the city without that streetlights on every corner, I would walk out the driveway, and it was dark, I always tried to be home by dark, away from the train tracks, the main highway, you see lights from houses, in drives a few walkway lights, or even Christmas lights but it is still dark.
So the beauty of the Bible encompassed many creations and we will get into more this spring, but He breathed stars, they guided people like lighthouses, the moon upon the seas, and one night I walked out back for some reason and there at the moon, almost close enough to touch it, It was yellow orange, like a giant nectarine or plate of cheese, it was right on the horizon, I have not seen it that way since, I notice if is quarter, half or full.
I have never been into astrology or numerology, they have been corrupted but the Bible is full of signs, symbols and meanings, the Holy Spirit gives wisdom and discernment. I like looking at the pictures from the Hubble telescope, perhaps you have seen the one called the eye of God, the helix Nebula and you look into one and at the end is the eye with a cross in it. Recently, I saw one called the Eagle Nebula, if you look, the wing of the eagle looks like an angel, a face to the right is pushing down a dark figure. The head is outlined and the body trails off into a sort of tail, like a genie.
God is amazing! Louie Giglio has some great pictures. I learned about the true meaning of the Zodiac from Dr. D. James Kennedy a long time ago. I may not be a rocket scientist, but I love the way creation is described, He even refers to angels as stars, and they figure prominently in Revelation. I am whimsical, and He breathed stars, maybe even some for a crown.
Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. And by the seventh day God had finished the work He had been doing; so on that day He rested from all His work.…
For He looked down from the heights of His sanctuary; the LORD gazed out from heaven to earth. Psalm 102:19
He counts the stars and calls them all by name. How great is our Lord. Psalm 147:4
Praise Him, sun and moon, praise him, all you shining stars! Psalm 148:3
