Genesis 1;14:-19 From the Companion Bible, Appendix 12
NOT ONLY WERE THE HEAVENLY BODIES CREATED TO DIVIDE DAY FROM NIGHT, to give light to the earth, but for SIGNS, for seasons, and for days, and years. There is an emphases in this area that we should single out these four purposes and consider them separately. Therefore let us at this time consider SIGNS.
We see there are signs of something or someone TO COME, that is the indication.
“Learn not the way of the Heathen and be not dismayed at the SIGNS of the Heavens.” (Jer. 10:2)
The Stars are numbered and named, and there are 12 signs of the Zodiac called ‘Start’. In Genesis 37:9 eleven of these bowed down to Joseph who was the 12th. The word Zodiac means the degrees or steps which mark the stages of the suns path through the heavens, corresponding with the 12 months, 12 being one of the special numbers of scripture.
