Since mans fall in the garden of Eden and Judgment against the Serpent was issued that…
“And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”  Genesis 3:15

Satan has been laying a minefield of doubt, lies, and perversion of the plan that God gave according to ancient Jewish writings the plan of salvation in the stars known as “The Way”.  The serpent perverted this over the ages in every nation in what we call the zodiac.  This can be traced all the way back to the tower of Babylon in secular and religious writings.  God has a plan and Satan has a plan to keep a man from Gods plan.  Prayerfully consider the information that is set forth.  At Amos37 we don’t elevate anything on the plane with biblical teaching.  This research in concert with historical and biblical evidence coupled with current Satanic deception tools like Zeitgeist uncover the perversion of the Zodiac.   See our article on Zeitgeist Exposed. Did not the LORD God give us right at the very beginning of the bible some clues…

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.. Genesis 1:14

Remember the former things of old: for I [am] God, and [there is] none else; [I am] God, and [there is] none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times [the things] that are not [yet] done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure. Isaiah 46:9&10.

The Heavens Declare the Glory of God

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.

[There is] no speech nor language, [where] their voice is not heard.

Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,

Which [is] as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, [and] rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

His going forth [is] from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof. Psalm 19

The Witness of the Stars
E. W. Bullinger


Some years ago it was my privilege to enjoy the acquaintance of Miss Frances Rolleston, of Keswick, and to carry on a correspondence with her with respect to her work, Mazzaroth or, the Constellations. She was the first to create an interest in this important subject. Since then Dr. Joseph A. Seiss, of Philadelphia, has endeavored to popularize her work on the other side of the Atlantic; and brief references have been made to the subject in such books as Moses and Geology, by Dr. Kinns, and in Primeval Man; but it was felt, for many reasons, that it was desirable to make another effort to set forth, in a more complete form, the witness of the stars to prophetic truth, so necessary in these last days.

To the late Miss Rolleston, however, belongs the honor of collecting a mass of information bearing on this subject; but, published as it was, chiefly in the form of notes, unarranged and unindexed, it was suited only for, but was most valuable to, the student. It was she who performed the drudgery of collecting the facts presented by Albumazer, the Arab astronomer to the Caliphs of Grenada, AD 850; and the Tables drawn up by Ulugh Beigh, the Tartar prince and astronomer, about AD 1450, who gives the Arabian astronomy as it had come down from the earliest times.

Modern astronomers have preserved, and still have in common use, the ancient names of over a hundred of the principal stars which have been handed down; but now these names are used merely as a convenience and without any reference to their significance.

This work is an attempt to popularize this ancient information and to use it in the interest of truth.

For the ancient astronomical facts and the names, with their meaning, I am, from the very nature of the case, indebted, of course, to all who have preserved, collected, and handed them down; but for their interpretation, I am alone responsible.

It is the possession of “that blessed hope” of Christ’s speedy return from heaven which will give true interest in the great subject of this book.

No one can dispute the antiquity of the signs of the Zodiac, or of the constellations. No one can question the accuracy of the ancient star names which have come down to us, for they are still preserved in every good celestial atlas. And we hope that no one will be able to resist the cumulative evidence that, apart from God’s grace in Christ there is no hope for sinners now; and apart from God’s glory, as it will be manifested in the return of Christ from heaven, there is no hope for Israel, no hope for the world, no hope for a groaning creation. In spite of all the vaunted promises of a religious world, and of a worldly church, to remove the effects of the curse by a social gospel of sanitation, we are more and more shut up to the prophecy of Genesis 3:15, which we wait and long to see fulfilled in Christ as our only hope.

In the beginning God…

As I have studied various belief systems and the bible as THE source of supernatural truth.  The bible teaches that man was created on the sixth day.  The heavens had been created and all the hosts by the creation of man.  When Job demanded some answers from God about his sorrows, God responded in Job chapter 38. Job 38 God expounded to Job where was he when God created everything?  Read all of chapter 38, but in verse 7 there is an interesting comment…

“When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?”

The angels including Satan the deceiver was there.  Moved with jealousy to be like the most High and the fall of man in the garden of Eden.  God pronounced curses on all the parties involved in Adam & Eves sin.  The serpent (Satan) was told his demise would be by the seed of the woman.  This was the first reference to a virgin born avenger that would crush Satan!  Satan then set about to continue to pervert the progressive revelation that God was giving to man.  One of those revelations according to ancient Jewish records is that Adam, Seth, and Enoch where given the plan of salvation recorded in the heavens to help them watch the progress of Gods plan.

What went wrong? Babel



The Tower of Babel

by Ray C. Stedman

The appearance of the first city [after the flood, built by Nimrod] goes back in the story of Cain and Abel, when Cain went out and built a city. It illustrated the hunger of humanity to huddle together for companionship, even though they were not really ready to do it (as they still, obviously, are not ready to live together successfully in cities). God’s final intention is to build a city for man. Abraham looked for “a city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.” But man was not yet ready for that. Now here they are, again ready to build a city to satisfy the desires of body and soul. There is nothing that does this better than for human beings to live together in cities. Cities are centers of commercial and business life where all the needs of the body can best be met. Also, cities are centers of pleasure and culture, where all the hungers of the soul can be satisfied: hunger for beauty, art, and music and all the ingredients of culture.

The tower, on the other hand, is designed to satisfy the spirit of man. Here we see, reflected in these two things, a fundamental understanding of the nature of man as body, soul, and spirit. All are to be satisfied in these two elementary needs, the city and the tower. A number of years ago, digging in the plains of Shinar, archaeologists discovered the remains of certain great towers that these early Babylonians had built. Some archaeologists have felt that they may even have found the foundation of this original tower of Babel. That is very hard to determine. But they did find that the Babylonians built great towers called ziggurats, which were built in a circular fashion with an ascending staircase that terminates in a shrine at the top, around which are written the signs of the zodiac. Obviously, the tower was a religious building, intending to expose man to the mystery of the heavens and the greatness of God. That, perhaps, is what is meant here by the statement that they intended to build a tower with its top in the heavens. They were impressed by its greatness architecturally, that is, it was a colossal thing for the men of that day to build and they may have thus thought of it as reaching into heaven. But they also unquestionably were thinking of it as a means of communication with God, of maintaining contact with him. God is not to be left out, you see, in the city of man. He is there, represented by this tower. The Tower of Babel Affair 


Babylonian – Tower of Babel 


Uncovering The Mazzaroth

Berean Bible Church – Edgewater, Florida – Doug Dodd s.b.g.

Uncovering The Mazzaroth (Zodiac) 

Job 38:31 Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? 32 Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons? 33 Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?

There is not anything better to top off a good meal than a really delicious desert served with a rich blend of coffee! And the same is true with sound doctrine, from time to time we need a big slice of homemade Dutch Apple Pie and a big cup of Starbucks or Earl Grey.

That is what this study is intended to be, just some desert to “fill up the corners” of our appetite.

As we begin let me give you a caveat by saying that most of what we will cover in this study is “speculation”. A number of circumstances that just happen to demonstrate a message in the constellations, a message that has been covered up and hidden by those who, as Paul says “… hold the truth in unrighteousness”.

This “speculative study” has been however, very interesting to me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.


What is the Mazzaroth? We know it today as the Zodiac! The Hebrew word carries the sense of “some message in the constellations”. And is this not just what the word of God says about the stars? – Gen 1:14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

May I suggest to you that God, before he wrote down his word, wrote in the heavens! God created and positioned the stars and it was he who gave them their names. It is in the meaning of the names of these stars, that make up the constellations, that make up the Mazzaroth that we can read the SIGNS that God put there.

Of course these signs have been corrupted down through the ages. Astrology can not be any further from the truth. For the 12 Signs of the Zodiac have nothing to say about man but it does have something to say about God and his plan to bring about redemption.

By the way have you ever noticed the number 12 in your Bible?

There were 12 patriarchs from Seth to Noah and 12 from Shem to Jacob.

There are the 12 sons of Israel. There are really 13 but there are never more than 12 given in any one list. There are about 18 enumeration’s but in each list one or other is omitted. Usually Levi but not always. In Revelation 7 Dan & Ephraim or omitted and Levi & Joseph are inserted as the remnant to go through the tribulation.

144000 = 12,000 X 12,000 Male, Jewish, Virgins (Just for you Russelites)

There were 12 Judges: Othniel – Ehud – Shamgar – Barak – Gideon – Tola – Jair – Jephthah – Ibzan – Elon – Abdon – Samson

There are 12 Apostles With 12 Thrones Judging The 12 Tribes!

The 12 foundations of the new Jerusalem & 12 gates, pearls and angels.

There are 24 elders (2X12)

Jesus was 12 years old when he first appears in public.

Luke 2:42 And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalemafter the custom of the feast.

First recorded words! … Luke 2:49 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?


Last recorded words during earthly ministry of Christ

John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

Each tribe of Israel was, apparently associated with one of the 12 signs of the Mazzaroth, along with one of the 12 planets and some other 12’s that I cannot cover at this time, but 12 is an important number. ( I know you think I am crazy but have another piece of Pie and we will deal with this topic in another lesson)

Where do we begin with the 12 signs of the zodiac or Mazzaroth?

As you know the Zodiac ( from here on Mazzaroth ) or Mazzaroth has 12 signs making a circle. Where do you break in? Which sign is the first sign? If there is a message in the Mazzaroth then you must have a starting point.

Astrologers start with the Ram, Aries. So far I have not been able to find out why.

However, I believe it starts with Virgo, The Virgin. The ancient Egyptians also began the Mazzaroth with Virgo. In the temple of Esn’eh, in Egypt, a Sphinx is placed between the Signs of Virgo & Leo in the zodiac carved there. Signor Bossi executed a drawing on the spot under the direction of Edward J. Cooper in 1820.

Note: Edward J. Cooper was a famous astronomer.


The Sphinx – The word means to “bind closely together” and is a composite of a woman and a Lion… Virgo and Leo if you will. So the ancients, it seems started their Mazzaroth with Virgo and ended it with Leo and so will we.

Sign of virgo

The word means…

In Latin = The Virgin

In Hebrew = Bethulah = The Virgin

In Greek = Parthenos = Maid Of Virgin Pureness

In Arabian = Adarah = The Pure Virgin

In ancient Arabian = Sunbul = An Ear Of Corn

The Sign Virgo is always depicted as a woman, a virgin woman. Sometimes she is alone but again the ancient Babylonians & Egyptians depicted the virgin holding a child.

The virgin is also show holding a ear of corn in one hand and a branch in the other.

If you have ever done a dot to dot picture you know that as you draw from one dot to the next you form a picture. Try as you will you cannot do that with the constellations. The picture has taken precedence over the “meanings of the names of the stars” in the constellations i.e. the names come first AND THEN the pictures were drawn to represent the names of the stars.

We will employ several charts to help simplify and correlate the information we will be going through. The Chart will list the names of the stars in the order of their magnitude or brightness, followed by the meaning of the name in several languages and then a verse or two to bring continuity to our “speculation” ( have another cup of coffee?).

Star Name





Genesis. 3:15



JOHN 12:24



JER.23:5,6; ZECH.3:8; & 6:12






Isaiah. 7:14





COMMENT: In the sign called Virgo we see: The Righteous One, The righteous Branch, The seed of the woman, who is to come. Whose coming will be glorious and beautiful. The promised seed.

Each Sign is made up of one major constellation and 3 DECAN’s. These too are constellations that are assigned to the major constellation. Decan is from the root word deca meaning ten and in astrology the Decans cover 10 degrees of the zodiac. 3 X 12 = 36 total number of Decans in the Mazzaroth. 10 X 36 = 360 degrees in a circle.

We will not go into the names of all the stars in each Decan but we will give you enough information to send you to the reference books!

The Decans for Virgo are…


Meaning of Name

Depiction & Or Verses


The Desired Son

Virgin holding and infant.


The Despised

The centaur was a despised creature in mythology, and so too Christ was despised, see Isa.53:3. The centaur was a composite creature demonstrating 2 natures just as the Lord Jesus Christ was both God and Man!


The Coming One

Running with a sickle in one hand and a shepherds staff in the other!


So what we have here is the virgin bringing forth a son who is the seed and the branch. He will have two natures and be despised. When he comes he will come quickly with judgement and justice. And Justice is what the next sign is all about.


The Sign Libra

Latin = The Scales

Hebrew = Mozanaim = The Pair of scales weighing

Arabic = Al Zubena = The purchase or redemption

Star Name



Zuben Al Genubi – Arabic

The price which is deficient

Romans 3:10, 23

Zuben Al Shemali

The price which covers


Zuben Al Akrab

The redemption price of the conflict

1 Pet 2:24

Comment: The meaning of this sign then is clear. All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. But God commendeth his love towards us in the while we were yet sinners Christ died for us. But it is just speculation – Right?


Meaning of Name

Depiction & Or Verses


the southern cross

A Cross – John 12:32- 33 – Luke 23:33


The Victim – Hebrew = Asedah = To be slain / willingly! – Victima in the Mazzaroth is being slain by the centaur showing that it is God making our payment for us!

A wolf or dog

John 10:17 -18


The Royal Crown

A crown – Philippians 2:8 – 11


So here we see the kinsman redeemer! He redeems according to the law for he was perfect and without sin. He could, would and did pay for all sin, for all men, for all time. He did it willingly on the cross and is crowned King of Kings and Lord of Lords! – But it is still just speculation… (see Psalm 19!)


The Sign Of Scorpio

Latin = The heart of the Scorpion

Hebrew = Akrab = Scorpion & can mean The conflict or war

Coptic = Isidis = Attack of the Enemy




Antares – Arabic

The wounding

Genesis 3:15

Lesath, Lesha Heb. Chal.

The Perverse

Isaiah 14:13 & FF


The enemy of man and God now appears, wounding and being perverse. There are only two stars in Scorpio the number of division. Antares means to wound and that is what Satan does. He is the great enemy of the souls of men because of the perverse nature of his heart.

This story of the conflict of the ages is carried further in the Decans associated with Scorpio.


Meaning of Name

Depiction & Or Verses


The Serpent

Revelation 12:9 – A coiling serpent with its head going towards “corona” the Crown of God & Isaiah 14


The Serpent holder

Holding the serpent which is after the crown “corona”


The Mighty Man

Down on one knee (maybe wounded) right foot on the head of the dragon with a club upraised!


Here is that great conflict. That old serpent, the devil, bent on the throne and crown of God. His desire is to be like the most high! But the serpent holder is there restraining him. Even as our pilot Paul says – 2 Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.Then enters Hercules the mighty man of God. Down on one knee but not defeated. Down on one knee with his right heal raised as if wounded. Down on one knee in the garden yet not defeated. Down on one knee but with a club in his hand ready to strike the serpent on the head!

But it is all “just speculation.”

We will fast forward now to the last sign in the Mazzaroth, for we cannot do them all here.


The Sign Of Leo

Latin = The Lion – Rev 5:5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

Hebrew – Arieh – The Lion Rending

Arabic – Al Asad – The Lion who Rends (Syrian = same)




Regulus – Heb.

The treading under foot


Denebola – Heb

The Judge Who Cometh Quickly

Rev 22:12 ; 20

Al Giebha – Arabic

The Exaltation

Rev 4:11; 1 Tim 6:14-17


Leo is the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. The seed of the woman. The righteous branch. He roars out of Zion. He comes to his own again, but this time as the Lion not the Lamb. When he comes the second time he will tread underfoot his enemies. He will come in righteous judgement and will receive that kingdom that was promised to him before the foundation of the world.


Meaning of Name

Depiction & Or Verses


The excluded, put out of the way

A Serpent

Crater – The Cup – 13 stars in this cup.

Joined Together (with the serpent)

The cup of the wrath of God is joined directly to the serpent indicating coincidence. Rev 14:10& Rev 16:19

Corvus / The Raven

Minchir Al Gorab = The Raven’s tearing to pieces!



What we have here is the wrath of God being poured out as Leo comes to pounce on the head of the serpent. We see also the death of Satan and the ravens feeding! – Rev 19:17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; 18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

But again, it is all just speculation… ready for that second slice? More coffee?

All kidding aside… Psalm 19:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handiwork. 2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. 4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, 5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. 6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

God named and placed the stars. They were named so as to teach us about himself. Before the word of God was written on paper it was written in the stars. Every man has the witness of creation, but alas mankind perverts all that God does. As it was in 2 Kings 23 so it is today…

2 Ki 23:5 And he put down the idolatrous priests, whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places in the cities of Judah, and in the places round about Jerusalem; them also that burned incense unto Baal, to the sun, and to the moon, and to the planets ( Mazzaroth ), and to all the host of heaven.

Astrology with its zodiac cannot hide the truth written in the stars. The message written by God – it is as if that message is Hidden In Plain Sight!
