The sun and moon November 7, 2010

Posted by daniel ayad in Biblical, Science.

The holy bible contains countless stories of idol worship. There are the gods of Baal and Ashtoreth, and the great goddess Diana, plus many more. Other idol worship includes the creation of God such as the sun or the moon.

The book of kings speaks about this idol worship “Then he removed the idolatrous priests whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense on the high places in the cities of Judah and in the places all around Jerusalem, and those who burned incense to Baal, to the sun, to the moon, to the constellations, and to all the host of heaven” (2 Kings 23:5)

Unfortunately many scientists, ordinary people, tribes and cultures worship the sun or moon rather than God Himself. Some are maybe attracted to the light energy the sun provides or even the heat energy. Maybe some are attracted to the beauty of the sun or the moon that reflects light from the sun.

Perhaps some people find the layers of the sun fascinating or the layers of the moon fascinating. For example some are maybe attracted to the craters of the moon.

Others are perhaps deceived into the phases of the moon and may depend on the moon for answers in a particular time. I remember reading before where a particular phase of a moon calculated the gender of pregnant woman’s child. You may think it’s harmless, but some are definitely influenced by this calculation, and may worship the moon if it’s ‘accurate’.

All astrology definitely falls into this erroneous worship. These people start believing and turn to idols for answers, rather than God Himself. Remember the astrologers of Daniel’s time when they were sought to answer to the king’s dreams. They could never deliver the goods and were killed.

I don’t want to go too far into astrology as I choose to know very little about it. Certainly though astrologers do not keep these verses in mind:

“Praise Him, sun and moon; Praise Him, all you stars of light! (Ps 148:3)

“Then the moon will be disgraced, And the Sun ashamed: for the Lord of hosts will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem And before His elders, gloriously” (Isa 24:23)

The sun shall no longer be your light by day, Nor the brightness shall the moon give light to you: But the Lord will be to you an everlasting light, And your god your glory. Your sun shall no longer go down, Nor shall your moon withdraw itself; For the Lord will be your everlasting light” (Isa 60: 19-20)

“The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord” (Joel 2:31)

These idol worshippers “exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen” (Rom 1:25)

Always remember the God of heaven, the Creator, is the only one to be worshipped. Never worship the creatures at the expense of the Creator.
