From The Alpha and the Omega - Introduction

Astrology, Astrologer and Astronomy of the Bible

Entitled: "Did you know that your horoscope can kill you?"

   The author of this book must clarify that he does not believe in horoscopes, astrology as used to foretell the future events of a person. As in Isaiah 47:13, "Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy councels." "Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee." (astrologer "those stargazers who make predictions month by month"). The Bible condemns the pseudo-science of astrology.

   The Zodiac and its symbolism, acknowledged throughout this book have a relationship to prophesy, numbers, and meanings that have occurred since the beginning. The circle is the sum total of creation. Using mathematical fact, the number 72 represents the number of years in one degree of a zodiacal age. A Grand Cycle of 360 degrees would complete the circle. Each of the twelve signs of the zodiac now has 30 degrees allotted to it. Each one of these ages called a Month in the Great Zodiacal Year, and each of the thirty-days of such a month amounts to one day. This figure of 72 years is in full agreement with Kabbalistic practices representing the number of years of a man's life.

   Although I have researched much information about the Kabbalistic practices, it is all for naught unless one can read ancient Hebrew. There is just as much controversy in its history as in all the other religious texts in existence. One should beware not to believe all one reads especially if you have to rely on someone else translating the language from texts that were translated from other versions of the original. It is not important that you study the Kabbalah or the myriad of text on the subject in order to understand the simplicity of God’s words.

   My purpose of writing this book is to rid the Bible of a God whom superstitious people have introduced into it and to search for some real coherence in the word YHVH and of the Bible as a rational narrative. Even if I am totally wrong in using the "Zodiac" or "Mazzaroth" as a reference to Biblical events, one will still find the following chapters and inserts very inspiring or amusing. The Bible itself is a very complex and diverse book, requiring years of study just to fathom through it’s content. As you will read in this book many answers to questions you may have had in your lifetime. But one must not forget the simple message of the Bible is to believe in Jesus Christ as your Savior.
