The Star Gospel

The Story in the Heavens

Like the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, the vault of the heavens declares the story of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Creator of the universe, to the glory of God.  Before the scriptures were written, the Star Gospel, the story of creation, was written in the stars.  There are twelve chapters in the Star Gospel.  The chapters are clusters of constellations which complete the graphic representation of each segment of the entire story of the history of creation.

The background for the Star Gospel is the fall of Satan, his sentence to the Lake of Fire, and Satan's appeal of the sentence. God granted him an appeal trial.  Witnesses were needed for the trial, and man was created to resolve the prehistoric angelic conflict.  When the man sinned, the Lord promised the Savior to pay for the sins of the world.  The Star Gospel is the story of the Savior from the Virgin Birth to the return at the Second Advent to conquer the enemies of Israel and set up the Millennial Kingdom.

The theme of the Star Gospel is simply, the Lord Jesus Christ.  The pictures in the Heavens are designed to honor and glorify the Lord Jesus Christ.  Every constellation bears testimony to His Integrity, Righteousness, Truth, Justice, and Mighty Power.  Any person who looks up at the stars during his lifetime, will see the story of Jesus Christ in Heaven and reach God consciousness.  Those who are positive, will receive the gospel so they can believe in Jesus Christ and receive Eternal Life.  Those who do not believe will be without excuse because all the Heavens tell the truth.

Satan, from earliest times, has created lies and half-truths to deny the witness of the Star Gospel, which has been known since the time of Adam.  The constellations and the planets have been named in honor of fallen angels, and stories of mythology have been substituted to deceive ignorant and foolish unbelievers.  So powerful is the witness of the stars to bring a person to God consciousness that Satan has attacked it vehemently.  Before the Flood, he tried to destroy the human race to prevent the Virgin Birth, the story proclaimed by Virgo, the Virgin.  After the Flood, he went underground and invented his own mythology and convinced the astrologers of Babylon to adopt it in lieu of the truth of the Star Gospel.  Thus, he forever ruined the name of astrology.  The star signs are not evil, but Satan's version of them is.

Synopsis of the Star Gospel

Just as the year is divided into twelve months, the Star Gospel is divided into twelve chapters, or major signs.  The number, twelve, is the number for God's authority over all creation.  The Lord Jesus Christ, who created all things, has complete authority over all creation.  God the Father was the author of the Plan of the Ages, and the Lord Jesus Christ was given the authority implement the Plan of God.  The Lord Jesus Christ created the Universe, the Angels, and man.  The order of creation is then God-Universe-Angels-Man (GUAM).

Since the Star Gospel is the story of the Lord Jesus Christ, it is logically divided into two parts:  The First Advent of the Lord Jesus Christ in Hypostatic Union and the Second Advent when He returns in Resurrection Body to conquer the enemies of Israel and rule as King in the Millennium.  It begins with the Virgin Birth and ends with Satan being cast into the Lake of Fire.  There are seven chapters associated with the First Advent, where 7 is the number for the completion of a category.  There are five chapters associated with the Second Advent, where 5 is the number for grace.

The 12 chapters of the Star Gospel are:

First Advent - Hypostatic Union

  1. Virgo - the virgin - the story of the Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ, the promised Messiah.
  2. Libra - the scales - the judgment of Jesus Christ on the Cross to pay for the sins of the world and satisfy the Justice of God.

  7. Pisces - the two fish - one pointing toward the pole star and the other toward the Ecliptic symbolize a priest interceding for the believer and foreshadow Jesus Christ, the High Priest of the Church.  The fish on the cord symbolize Positional Sanctification and Eternal Security of the believer bound to Christ.

  9. Aries - the ram - Christ as the Conqueror Commander-in-Chief with the resurrected Church in Heaven during the Tribulation.
  10. Taurus - the bull - The Redeemer will return at the Second Advent to conquer and to rule the earth.
