Lies Astrologers Believe:     Truth to Say to them:

Deception:  Astrology is an ancient practice that assumes that one’s life pattern can be “charted” by determining the position of the stars and planets at the time of one’s birth.  This chart is called your “Horoscope.”   People ask: “What’s your sign?” in many casual conversations.

Truth to Say:  The Bible forbids us from relying on astrologers and astrology:  Deuteronomy 4:19 says: “And beware lest you lift up your eyes to the heavens, and when you see the sun, the moon and the stars, even all the host of the heavens, you be drawn away and worship them and serve them.”  Isaiah 47:13-15 In His wrath, God said through Isaiah:  “Let your astrologers come forward, those stargazers who make predictions month by month, let them save you from what is coming upon you.  Surely they are like stubble; the fire will burn them up.  They cannot save themselves from the power of the flame.”   See also Daniel 2:27-28.

Deception:  Astrology claims to have the solution to two basic questions:

1.)   Who am I?  

2.)   What will happen to me in my future? 

So astrology offers daily horoscopes to predict individuals’ futures. 

Truth to Say:  The truth is that men and women were created in the image of God. So we are a three-part being with a body, soul, and a spirit. When a person receives Jesus Christ as Savior, their spirit becomes born-again into the Kingdom of God. Then they are connected to God or “on-line” and thus, they have the ability to be led by the Spirit of God, also called following “your inward witness” or your heart (Romans 8:14).  As Christians, we are not to be led by the stars, but we are to be led by the God who created them.

Deception:  Some Christians flirt with reading their daily horoscope and don’t understand the subconscious conflicting danger “or static” this brings to their minds to prevent them from being led by the Spirit of God in their heart.

Truth to Say:  Since it is apparent a great deal of astrology has no basis in reality, when you live your life by a horoscope, you run the risk of great financial loss due to what you may spend on astrology and also because of what the astrologers may recommend for you to do as far as:  invest now, or buy later, or don’t purchase this, etc.  Another danger is a person who continually tries to live his life by a horoscope can become very depressed with no hope as he sees life as fatalistic, predetermined from birth, with no way to break free and change.

Deception:  If one reads a horoscope, even in a cursory manner, he will be struck with the general and ambiguous nature of the statements, which can be pointed to as fulfilling anything that may happen that day or just about everything. Since there are so many variables and options, the astrologer seems to be “always right.” If you break your arm, when your astrologer told you the signs were “good,” he can congratulate you on escaping what might have happened had the signs been badConversely, if you go against the signs and nothing happens, the astrologer can insist that you were careful because you were forewarned that the signs were “bad” for that day.

Truth to Say:  Astrology must be rejected as both unscientific and unbiblical because

1.  Conflicting Systems - There are many systems of astrology, which are diametrically opposed to each other.  Astrologers in the West differ from those in the East. Some say there are 8 zodiac signs and others contend that there are 12 or 14 or even 24. So one could go to two different astrologers and receive two totally different courses of behavior for the same day.  If you compare horoscopes in daily newspapers you’ll often see contradictions. 

2. Missing Planets - Secondly, in ancient times, UranusNeptune and Pluto were unobservable with the naked eye, so most astrological charts are based upon the assumption that there are seven planets in our solar system (including the sun and moon).  So the astrological theory breaks down, for no accurate horoscope could be charted without considering all nine of the planets and influence. In 2006, Pluto was downgraded as not a planet at all. 

3. Twins are born at exactly the same time and place; they should have the same destiny.  Unfortunately, experience shows this is not the case.

4. No Scientific Verification - Astrological prediction is criticized because of the fact that its scientific value is nil die to shifting constellations.

 

How to Help People Get Set Free:  

Read: Hebrews 10:38, Jeremiah 29:11; I Corin. 2:9-12. and Proverbs 3:5-6.  Pray this prayer:  “God, work in me and create in me the power and desire both to will and to do of Your good pleasure. I want to walk in Your will and Your ways and in Your perfect timing. Help me to be led not by the stars, but by Your Spirit.”   Astrologists need get saved and learn how to be led by the Spirit of God.   I recommendHow You Can Be Led By the Spirit of God  by Kenneth E. Hagin & Listen to Your Heart by Kenneth Hagin, Jr.

Would you like to Receive Jesus as your Lord and Have Eternal Life in Heaven?  Then Pray this Salvation Prayer:  

“Heavenly Father, I believe You love me and that Your Son Jesus Christ died for me on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead.  Jesus, I repent of my sins.  I repent for believing those lies and I believe in the truth.  I ask You to come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior.  Holy Spirit, come fill me with Your power.  Thank You for loving and forgiving me, for saving me from hell, and giving me eternal life in heaven.  In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
