Signs: “God’s Story of Redemption is Written in the Sky”

Excerpt from “The Voice of the Church” by Diane Epling

In the Book of Job, the Hebrew meaning of Mazzaroth is revealed to us: Mazzaroth refers to the constellations. God gave us a powerful navigational tool in the constellations and an incredible message that would last until the end of time. When looking up, we see God’s message of redemption revealed in the stars, the moon, and the sun. In Genesis 1:14 NIV, it says, And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as SIGNS to mark sacred times, and days and years. Before creating Adam and Eve, before giving us the Bible, God wrote the story of redemption in the sky for all to witness and have hope of salvation.        

Since ancient times, though, the enemy has used the story displayed in the constellations to confuse and confound God’s people. More people are familiar with the Greek names for the stars as the signs of the Zodiac. The enemy has tried to convince those seeking answers in God’s heavenly signs that they should support mythical New Age beliefs or witchcraft symbols designed to reveal their future. Again, Satan speaks in half-truths! The story in the heavens does reveal our future, but this story is God’s to tell, not Satan’s to interpret. So, let’s take some time to “look up” and discover God’s true story written in the heavens before humankind was created.

You might recognize the names of these constellations, but their spiritual meanings are much different from those presented in horoscopes or pictured on Tarot cards. You don’t have to be a palm reader or hold a séance to see God’s signs. All you need to do is step outside and look up. God’s heavenly signs are revealed to anyone seeking the truth. Each constellation carries its part of the story of redemption, delivering hope and Glory through God’s promised plan. I don’t pretend to be an astronomer. What I am is a seeker—a minister of God’s truth. So, follow me. Together, we’ll uncover the signs and their true spiritual meanings.  

Before we begin, it’s important to note that each star and its surrounding constellations were intentionally placed by God. Just as God did with humankind, He named every light in the heavens, giving each one a specific purpose. They were not randomly created but individually designed and positioned to reveal a composite of pictures and forms that tell the story of creation, redemption, and what to expect in the end times. Let’s break it down, shall we?

God’s Signs in the Heavens

  • Virgo (the Virgin)

Virgo’s constellations include Coma (woman and child); Centaurus (the Centaur); and Bootes (the Coming One). Virgo, the largest of God’s signs, is most visible in the night skies of the Northern Hemisphere during the months of March and April. In this sign, God shows us a picture of a virgin woman holding wheat in her hand. It is not a coincidence that Christ was borne of a virgin and is referred to in the Bible as the “bread of life.”

John 6:33-35 NIV

For the bread of God is the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” “Sir,” they said, “always give us this bread.” Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to Me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in Me will never be thirsty. 

Looking at this beautiful picture God has given in this sign, we realize God’s promise to send the Messiah through a virgin. God indicated in these constellations that the Messiah would be both fully God and fully man. He would be both desired and despised. God wanted us to be comforted by the fact that the Messiah was to be the perfect offering of forgiveness for our sins. Christ knew what it was like to be human and tempted by the enemy, yet He was innocent. God wanted us to know that His love for us was so great that He gave His only Son so we could share in Christ’s victory over death and spend eternity with Him.
