Ok so the 1st part of the Astrology and Revelation book is called Alpha and Omega. If you are familiar with Greek letters or the Bible, then you know that alpha and omega means beginning and the end. These are the first five books mentioned in that section with:

  1. Exodus 13:6, 34:18
  2. Leviticus 14:38, 23:42
  3. Numbers 23
  4. Deuteronomy 16:8, 13
  5. Exodus 39:37, 40

The 1st Exodus passage speaks about how the Lord brought the children of Israel out of Egypt. The second speaks about the feast of unleavened bread being seven days. The children of Israel were delivered out of Egypt in the month of Abib. Why was the #7 important? Why was the month Abib so special? Historically the #7 has been know to be God’s perfect number. Abib is the Hebrew month after the first New Moon after the barley becomes ripe. When I read this, I thought about the goddess Ceres/Demeter who is the goddess of agriculture, grain crops, and fertility. I looked up what Ceres means in astrology. According to astrology.com , Ceres is a dwarf planet associated with loss and reclamation.

The Leviticus passage speaks about how priest went out of the house and shut it up for seven days.  All of the Israelites that were born in Israel were also permitted to dwell in those booths. These passages were leading up to the Day of Atonement which is known in modern day as Yom Kippur.  Yom Kippur is observed on the 10th day of the 7th month. It is also the day of repentance. It falls on a different day each year because of the differences between the Hebrew and Gregorian calendars. I looked up the connection between this and astrology, and could only come up with the Yom Kippur war of 1973. It was confusing so if there are any astrologists reading this then please help me out here.

Numbers 23 was a passage telling of how Balak built Balaam 7 altars with 7 oxen and 7 rams. As mentioned before, God’s perfect number is 7. Because these altars were built, Balaam’s enemies ended up being blessed. The passage also speaks of how the Lord put a sword in Balaam’s mouth. The oxen in Chinese astrology signifies wealth and prosperity. Ram in modern astrology represents Aries. I’m not sure how these two animals are related, but the fact that their enemies were blessed makes a person wonder.

Deuteronomy speaks about how unleavened bread should be eaten for 6 days. On the 7th day a solemn assembly should be made unto the Lord. Basically we should work 6 days. What’s so special about the #6? It is the number associated with man and completion. I wasn’t sure what this had to do anything so I looked up the 6th house in astrology. The 6th house of astrology is ruled by the planet Mercury and is associated with work and health.

The last Exodus passage speaks about how the tabernacle was set up. It had pure candlesticks with lamps. It also included vessels of oil to provide light. The tent of the congregation was decorated with pillars, and cords. I’m not sure where this ties into astrology so again astrologists help me out with this one.

In conclusion, this is part one of the Alpha and Omega. I encourage any of you that know about astrology and theology to help me out with this understanding and correlation. I’m just trying to find some understanding.
