THE MAZZAROTH
REDEMPTIVE STORY OF THE STARS
Silent witness of the Gospel

  • What is the prophetic significance of the Zodiac of the Stars?
  • What are the origins of such a story-line attributed to?
  • Is there a typology of what YHVH has done through Jesus Christ?

‘For since the Creation of the World, GOD’s invisible qualities, His Eternal Power and Divine Nature have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.’ -Romans 1:20

The purpose of this study is to examine what constitutes the Zodiac or the message of the Mazzaroth. The Bible declares that the constellations in the Heavenlies proclaim the ageless testimony of YHVH’s redeeming plan for fallen Mankind. It was fashioned before the foundations of the world began. It can only be configured from Earth’s reference point of view. It begins with the constellation Virgo and ends with Leo. It is a message declared and displayed for all the Principalities, Power, Humanity, and Satan to witness. A ‘Witness’ of what? The Mazzaroth is a witness of Jesus Christ’s triumph and Lucifer’s demise. It was the knowledge taught and handed down from Adam that became skewed with the fall of mankind due to sin.

All cultures since then have had folklore of a Christ figure Redeemer that was to come, born immaculately. He was a teacher betrayed and then crucified on a cross and resurrected like Krishna of the Hindus. When the Spanish Conquistadors came to Mexico, the symbol for Quetzalcoatl the ‘Feathered Serpent’ was a cross on which he was crucified. When Christian missionaries encountered the Dogon peoples in Africa, they also had a cosmological story of ‘a Son’ dying on a cross. Each emerging culture/civilization ascribed the Zodiac different names and symbols to the constellations, yet the meaning has stayed exactly the same. This type of study is not astrology that Lucifer has corrupted to be man-centered or humanistic but Biblical Astronomy. It is the sacred knowledge of the Cosmos that is Christ-centered.

It is a story and study of this ‘silent witness’ as the Apostle Paul admonishes his readers to consider. As it states in Hebrews, YHVH in the past spoke to Humanity by dreams, visions and other ways to communicate His ‘Manifold Wisdom of Christ’ as Ephesians 3:10 states. However, now YHVH has spoken to mankind through the Son, Christ Jesus according to Hebrews 1:2. In the book of Acts chapter 8:26, the Ethiopian Eunuch was reading about the ‘Suffering Servant’ of YHVH in Isaiah and pondered who it was referring to. YHVH took note of this personal Bible Study and answered the Ethiopian’s inquire by dispatching an Apostle no less. This one insight shows the power of the Written Word of YHVH and how it is alive and effective for correction, teaching and approving what is truth. The Apostle Phillip was ‘raptured’ to the Ethiopian and correctly identified and explained that this Redeemer as depicted in Isaiah is Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the Messiah and no other before or after to come.

Definition
Each of the 12 Zodiac Signs or Mazzaroth has 3 sub-signs that complete the silent witness of the story of Christ’s redemptive work detailed in the star’s meanings. The Sun takes 1 year to traverse the Ecliptic and with it the Gospel Witness of Christ’s redeeming work is retold to every generation. The primary source is taken from the study by E. W. Bullinger’s The Witness of the Stars, 1893. With the study in these celestial Signs as a ’witness,’ one should obtain an appreciation for a far deeper meaning and correlation to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Gospel has a beginning and end; it will be fully realized at Jesus’ 2nd Coming in the not too distant future. Truly, the Heavens declare the Glory of the LORD. This same confirmation can be attributed celestially to the Zodiac as it correctly identifies the Christ of Jehovah, who is Jehovah.

The antithesis of this witness story line is that of Lucifer’s ultimate destiny of judgment and the doom of the coming AntiChrist. -John 12:31. The Mazzaroth מַּזָּלֹות in the Hebrew Bible comes from the Babylonian word Manzaztu for ‘station and position’ from Job 38:31-32. There is also a very similar word occurring in 2 Kings 23:3-5 that renders the meaning as constellations. The meaning refers to the Zodiac, the pattern of stars found along the Ecliptic. Currently in the modern west, such a Zodiac has been inherited from the Romans who inherited it from the Greek version and so on. The Ecliptic is an imaginary line that shows the path the Sun apparently ‘traveling’ against the fixed stars that configure unique shapes of animals, creature and anthropomorphic human forms.

This Zodiac in reference to the celestial sphere of space or the Universe has 12 constellations or ‘Signs’, thus the Signs of the Zodiac as the Earth revolves around the Sun during a given year. In more accurate terms, it is the intersection of the celestial sphere with the Ecliptic Plane, which is the geometric plane containing the mean orbit of the Earth around the Sun. It takes 1 solar year for the Sun to traverse the Ecliptic. The Sun stays in 1 ‘House” or sign of the Zodiac for about ~2000 years; it would take roughly 27,000 years to complete the grand sweep or 1 ‘Great Year’ as it is also referred to. The Ecliptic has 4 cardinal celestial points that correlate to our Earthly 4 directional points, as is the compass. They are marked off by the symbols corresponding to the constellations of Leo, Taurus, Aquarius and Scorpio. (Lion, Ox, Man, Eagle).

These cardinal points and symbols are seen and are ascribed to the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and of YHVH’s throne in Heaven. Such are celestial patterns of what was in the copies on Earth and what will be coming in the future. Moreover, at certain celestial times, the planets will configure a ‘Cardinal Cross’ as they are stationed in such ‘Houses’ as the Zodiac signs are also referred to as. In some translations, the word used for the celestial sings is actually Tabernacle as in a pavilion of sorts. How this notion of an encampment is seen in Scripture is how the very tribes of Israel were configured to match the alignments and symbols of the Mazzaroth or Zodiac. The 4 main directions of the encampment during the Exodus was like what was described in Heaven before the Throne of YHVH. One would not think that YHVH would be into astrology; He is not.

Biblical Astronomy
The astrology that is common has become just that, vulgar as in common as Lucifer has purposely diminished much of its majesty and meaning behind it. In the past, the Mazzaroth was incorporated in the Tabernacle in the Wilderness (Moses) according to Exodus 25:9. The ‘House’ or Tabernacle of Moses was a facsimile of YHVH’s Throne. It was given to the nation of Israel so that YHVH could interact with Mankind to a certain degree due to the Fall. YHVH had the 12 Tribes of Israel configured by a ‘sign’ or standard as they encamped around this House or ‘Throne’ and as the whole congregation marched across the wilderness. The Mazzaroth is foremost, incorporated in the Tabernacle in Heaven (Throne of GOD). This company of Hebrews and mixed peoples marched to the Promised Land as an Army by rank and file.

The 4 main quadrants made up the main tribes of Israel. The 4 quadrants were consisting of the Lion, Man, Bull and Eagle. The encampment configuration was based on population of each Tribe and made a ‘cross’ formation if one had a bird’s eye view of the whole encampment. The subsequent Solomon and Zerubbabel’s Temples were fashioned to the same exact blueprint given by YHVH. The majority of present-day Jews are expectant for a 3rd Temple but will last less than 7 years according to Daniel chapter 9:27. In the present, the Mazzaroth is incorporated in the Church Age, Body of Christ through the 4 Gospel accounts of the New Testament. (Ezekiel 1:26 and Revelation 4:7). The Bible provides few glimpses into how YHVH’s Throne is like. YHVH’s Throne always faces east located on the ‘Sides of the North’ in the ‘Mountain of the Congregation’ in Heaven.

It is different from His Merkavah Throne, or mobile chariot that is depicted in Ezekiel with wheels within wheels suspended on the Seraphim. YHVH’s throne is surrounded by the 4 Cherubim ‘Living Creatures’ that mirror the 4 quadrants of the Zodiac of the Cosmos; the Eagle, Ox, Man and Lion. In the Book of Revelation, the 24 Seated Elders represent the Redeemed in ‘Heavenly Places’ in Christ Jesus that like the tribes of Israel were configured around the Tabernacle, so to the Bride of Christ is ordered around the celestial Throne of YHVH per Ephesians 2:6. Jesus Christ is the only One that holds the office of Prophet, Priest and King. The Son of GOD left the Throne, entered time and space in the flesh to be crucified ‘outside’ the ‘Camp’ (Throne) to become a sacrifice for sin by the washing and renewing by this royal blood and Holy Spirit.

In the future, the Mazzaroth will be incorporated in the Tabernacle upon the New Earth (New Jerusalem) as conceptualized by Revelation 21:1. Jesus Christ is progressively making His way back to the Throne in a prophetic sense through His People’s spiritual journey. After the Millennial Temple and reign of Jesus Christ on Earth for 1000 years, there will be a New Heaven and New Earth. YHVH’s literal Throne will descend with its 12 layers of Foundation Stones. This is what Satan has mimicked with the ‘All-Seeing Eye’ capstone also descending on the 12-step truncated pyramid as seen in the Luciferian U.S. Federal Reserve dollar note.

The New Jerusalem ‘Holy of Holies’ will be cubed shaped as was all prior copies but within pyramid shaped, thus a double tetrahedron.
At that time, Earth will have no seas and no need for a Sun. A river will flow out from under the Throne as it was during the times of the Garden of Eden in Paradise. To reiterate Humanity is at the 11th hour in terms of YHVH’s astronomical clock. The prophetic hour is coming when Leo, Christ as in the ‘Lion of the Tribe of Judah’ is about to return to Earth and reign to crush the head of the Serpent, Lucifer for his rebellion and cosmic revolution. The current epoch has been in the Age of Pisces that is the Church Age has been given to exercise the Great Commission. This Age is about to end, and Humanity is about to enter the true Age of Aquarius, the 1000 Year Millennial reign of Christ on Earth.

The constellations in the Heavenlies proclaim the ageless testimony of YHVH’s יהוה‎ redeeming plan for fallen Mankind. It was fashioned before the foundations of the world began. It can only be configured from Earth’s reference point of view. It begins with Virgo and ends with Leo -declared & displayed for all the Principalities, Power, Humanity and Satan to witness. It was the knowledge taught and handed down from Adam that became skewed with the Fall of Mankind due to sin. Thus all cultures since then have had folklore of a Christ figure -Redeemer crucified on a cross, killed and resurrected like Krishna of the Hindus. When the Spanish Conquistadors came to Mexico, the symbol for Quetzalcoatl the ‘Feathered Serpent’ was a cross on which he was crucified. When Christian missionaries encountered the Dogon Peoples in Africa, they also had a cosmological story of ‘a Son’ dying on a Cross.

Each emerging culture/civilizations ascribed the Zodiac different names and symbols to the constellations, to a degree; yet the meaning has stayed exactly the same. This type of study is not Astrology that Satan has corrupted to be but Biblical Astronomy –the study of this ‘silent witness’ as the Apostle Paul admonishes us to consider. As it states in Hebrews, GOD in the past spoke to Humanity by dreams, visions and other ways to communicate His ‘Manifold Wisdom of Christ’ -Ephesians 3:10 but now has spoken to us through the SON, Christ Jesus-Heb 1:2. When the Ethiopian Eunuch was reading about the ‘Suffering Servant’ of GOD in Isaiah and who it was referring to, the Apostle Phillip identified and explained that this Redeemer is Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the Messiah and no other before or after to come. -Act 8:26 The antithesis of this witness story line is that of Satan’s ultimate destiny of judgment and doom. -John 12:31

THE ECLIPTIC
The ecliptic is an imaginary line that shows the path the Sun apparently 'travels' against the fixed stars –Zodiac (celestial sphere) as the Earth revolves around the Sun during a given year. In more accurate terms, it is the intersection of the celestial sphere with the ecliptic plane, which is the geometric plane containing the mean orbit of the Earth around the Sun. It takes 1 year to traverse the ecliptic. The Sun stays in 1 ‘House” or sign of the Zodiac for about ~2000 years; it would take roughly 27,000 years to complete the grand sweep

THE PAST
Tabernacle in the Wilderness (Moses) Exodus 25:9 
A facsimile of YHVH’s Throne was given to the Nation of Israel where YHVH יהוה‎ could interact with Mankind to a certain degree due to the Fall. YHVH had the 12 Tribes of Israel configured by a ‘sign’ / standard as they encamped around the ‘Throne’ and marched across the wilderness to the Promised Land -as an Army by Rank and File.

The majority of present-day Jews are expectant for a 3rd Temple –that will last less than 7 years. –Dan 9:27

THE PRESENT
Tabernacle in Heaven (Throne of YHVH) Ezekiel 1:26 and Rev 4:7 -Conceptual
We have few glimpses into how YHVH’s Throne is like. God’s Throne always faces East located on the ‘Sides of the North’ in the ‘Mountain of the Congregation.’ It is different from His Merkavah Throne, or mobile Chariot from Ezekiel with wheels suspended on the Seraphim's.  YHVH’s throne is surrounded by the 4 Cherubim ‘Living Creatures’ -Eagle, Ox, Man, Lion.

The Son of God, left the Throne, entered time & space in the Flesh to be crucified ‘outside’ the ‘Camp’ (Throne) to become a Sacrifice for sin by the washing & renewing by this Royal Blood & Holy Spirit. He is progressively making His way back to the Throne.

THE FUTURE
Tabernacle on New Earth (new Jerusalem) Rev 21:1
After the Millennial Temple and Reign of Jesus Christ on Earth for 1000 years, there will be a New Heaven & Earth. GOD’s literal Throne will descend w /its 12 layers of Foundation Stones. This is what Satan has mimicked with the All-Seeing Eye capstone also descending on the 12-step truncated pyramid.It will be cubed shaped as was all prior copies. Earth will have no seas; a River will flow out of the Throne and no need for a Sun. Prophetically, it is the 11th Hour as the number count leads up to Leo, Christ -the Lion of the Tribe of Judah who is about to return to reign. We have been in the Age of Pisces (Church Age) and about to enter the Age of Aquarius, the 1000 Year Millennial reign of Christ on Earth. Each of the 12 Signs has 3 sub-signs that complete the Story.


Our Sun takes 1 year to traverse the Ecliptic, and with it the Gospel Witness of Christ’s redeeming work is retold to every generation. The primary source is taken from the study by E. W. Bullinger’s The Witness of the Stars, 1893.
