Early on in scripture God had to warn the people to serve only him though he had no likeness or form of anything for God is a Spirit, Yet man went on to make images of many things including stars to worship and through the years I have been laughed at when telling people who read astrology reports that it is not of God to follow astrology and the like while some understood as I give the following passage while others chose to stay away from the truth. “Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitudes of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail. Thou are wearied in the multitude of thy councels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee”.(Isaiah 47:12,13). Since the people would not follow him he gave them over to their false practices, and said let them save you then knowing full well they were not able!
There is only one star that stands out as a blessing sent straight to us from heaven and this is the morning star the Lord Jesus Christ! We have so many translations now done with scripture and some versions have really changed the true words of God and one stands out to deceive many as found in Isaiah 14:12 which the follow shows the huge lie the NIV version has changed satan to Christ!!!! This is high unacceptable for those who want the truth of God’s holy word. Lets compare….”How are thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of god: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north”.(KING JAMES VERSION)………………….
“How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! You said in your heart, I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, of the utmost heights of the sacred mountain”.(NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION).
This is vital to the true Christian of Christ to see the difference the NIV has taken satan and replaced him with Jesus as though he wast cast down to the earth! THIS DECEPTIVE WRITING is covered by the word of God that people would try to change his holy word by adding to or taking from! (Revelation 22:18,19).
We find clearly in the book of revelation that JESUS IS THE MORNING STAR and not satan! ” I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.” Don’t allow your spirit to accept this lie of the great deceiver for it could cost you your very soul by following wrong translations.
It is written the people of God are a predestined people who knew God from the very beginning as said in Romans 8:29,30 and with this in mind the passage we find in Job confirms that we too shine as the stars who were with him from the very beginning! “Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?”(Job 38:6,7).
