120 The Heavens Declare

One drift that is currently or since a few years going around on the web is the notion that since there are so many similarities between ancient deities and religions and the story of Jesus, Christianity and its whole story must be a fabrication, and some go as far to claim that religion altogether seems to be a plot cooked up by the Illuminati to enslave mankind.

Certainly these people must be doing the Illuminati or whatever forces intend to enslave mankind a great favor by spreading their erroneous idea.

While it may be reasonable to conclude that similarities, such as the resemblance between the Babylonian "son of god" Tammuz and Jesus must be more than a coincidence, just as much as it was reasonable for Darwin to conclude from his observation of finches on Galapagos that changes are happening within creatures that help them to adapt to their environment, when that same train of thought and "reason" is spun further to an extreme, total nonsense comes out of it.

You've got to know when to tell your own mind to "stop! Thus far and no further!"

What the great conspiracy theory heroes like the producer of the movie "Zeitgeist," and other similar Youtube productions, or Reptilians-Specialist David Icke fail to see is the very legitimate reason for the similarities between the Gospel story and the tales of previous religions of Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Greece and Rome: These ancient religions were all based on astrology. And while millions of Christians around the world pee in their pants at the mere utterance of the world "astrology" because they know that it's one of the corner stones of witchcraft and paganism, their sin of fear is depriving the world of some very valuable and ancient knowledge, which tends to become forgotten, but does not have to be.

The secret is that God had written the Gospel story in the stars, way before we ever saw it unfold, exactly like it is said in the Psalms:

"The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth His handiwork.

Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth 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." (Psalm 19:1-4)

We all know that passage and love it because it sounds so mystically poetic, but few people really know what it means. Thankfully, some people do, and have overcome their fears of what fellow Christians might think of them if they would write a book about naughty, naughty astrology, and if enough people cared about the truth, we could all relax in the knowledge that it was God, not the Devil, who created not only the stars "for signs and for seasons" (Genesis 1:14), but also the zodiac.

According to William D. Banks and his book "The Heavens Declare," the origins of the zodiac dates back to Enoch (yes, the guy who walked with God, and "wasn't found," and from whom we've got the word "inch," coincidentally). The word zodiac having its true origins in Hebrew ("the path" - coincidentally the name Early Christians gave their new faith among believers), and prophetically telling the story of Jesus, the "Lamb slain from the foundation of the world" (Rev.13:8), - depicted in the star sign Aries, the ram, or lamb - beginning with the virgin Mary (Virgo), telling about the price He would pay (Libra) to free us from the grip of the Enemy (Scorpio) by pointing the arrow of His truth at his heart (Sagittarius), being the Scapegoat for our sins (Capricorn), pouring forth the waters of His Word (Aquarius), gathering His church [called-out ones] (Pisces) to be a Coming Ruler (Taurus), representing both God and man, King and servant, Savior and sufferer in one (Gemini), to gather His flock into His fold (Cancer) upon His Return as the rightful Heir, King and Ruler over all (Leo), to give the gist of the story in a nutshell.

The names of the stars in these signs have in all "speeches and languages," as Psalm 19 says, told the Story of "the One that was to come" for millennia before His actual birth, and since the stars were a major source of information to the scholars and wise men of the ancient empires, it's no wonder that their religion sounded so similar to what Christianity would become.

To conclude that the similarities between them are a result of man concocting His own idea of God is comparable to Darwin's conclusion that creation "concocted" itself - the only tolerable explanation for those who refuse to make room for God in their lives, regardless of the fact that life could never have created itself without information or intelligence, which always - undeniably and without exceptions - has an Author.

Conspiracy authors and filmmakers are thus unwittingly contributing to the cause of the very forces they try to expose, by tossing the only solution and hope of freedom for mankind into the same pot, confining humanity to the mental prison of an existence for no particular reason or purpose which already has created more misery than any other dogma in the past century.

The only hope they offer is that one day mankind will become enlightened enough to save itself from its own stupor, which generally is the same basis of all false religions and philosophies from Cain to Marx, based on the self-righteous assumption that one kind of people - for whatever reason - is better than the other, and thus deserves the position of power and authority over them. If that doesn't sound like NWO-Philosophy, what else does?

The dilemma with the world is that nobody ever realizes that the attitude that they know better than God is precisely the predicament that has landed them in the mess they're in.
