Kenny, during one of your Sunday morning sessions we read a passage that included “..and God was counting the stars….” I though I had mad a note of that one but didn’t. Do you recall where that was?

asked by Jimmy

The verse you’re thinking of is Psalms 147:4

4 He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.


This is interesting because several of the stars have names that date back to ancient Arabic. Dr. D. James Kennedy did a series of messages several years ago called “Gospel in the Stars”. In that series he describes the unique and insightful names given to many of the stars in the constellation. For example one of the stars in Virgo is a star called coma, which means the “desired one”. In this series of messages he teaches that the zodiac was originally the gospel in the stars and each sign has meanings to scripture. Such as Virgo or the virgin (Mary) holding seeds in one hand (seed of the woman genesis 3:15) a vine in the other (Jesus said “I am the vine” john 15:5). The names all relate to the Biblical meaning and God told us Genesis 1:16 that he gave us the stars for “signs and seasons”. God even mentions the constellations in Job (which is the oldest book in the Bible after Genesis) 38:31-32


31 “Can you bind the beautiful Pleiades? Can you loose the cords of Orion? 32 Can you bring forth the constellations in their seasons or lead out the Bear with its cubs?


Dr. Kennedy goes on to state that satan, as he always does, corrupted the true meaning of the zodiac which is why God later cautioned against it (Isiah 47:13-14).

Speaking of Job… in chapter 38:7 God tells Job:


7 while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?  

NASA has discovered fairly recently that stars do indeed emit a harmonious humming sound, something our disadvantaged Job would never have known. Just another example of science being proven in the Bible.
