I’m in shock as to just how many Christians today are dabbling in Astrology, and how many of them post their horoscope on Facebook. “Well, you’re a Picees, and I’m a Virgo, hmm… what do the stars predict for me today?” Some may say they’re just having a little fun, and it’s no big deal, but what does the Bible have to say about Astrology? Listen to what God says, through the prophet Isaiah.
You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels; Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, And the monthly prognosticators stand up and save you From what shall come upon you. [Isaiah 47:13 NKJV]
Astrolgy is a major slap in the face of a loving God, who has revealed Himself through His Son, Jesus Christ. Astrology is also a form of witchcraft, because it is seeking to know about furture events without God’s Word, the Holy Bible, or through prayer.
Don’t allow yourself to get sucked into the trap of taking some sort of a shortcut in finding the will of God for your life. Don’t dabble in witchcraft, because the enemy will use it to against you, and will laugh in your face. Rather listen to what God says, “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” [Jer. 33:3 NKJV]
If you’ve dabbled in Astrology, or Witchcraft, pray this prayer outloud:
“Dear Jesus, I now realize that Astrology is witchcraft, and I ask you now to forgive me. I renounce all occultic practices and behaviors, no matter how insignificant it seemed. Wash me now in the precious blood of Jesus, and give me a new hunger for Your Word and a desire to come to You in prayer, that I might know the will of God for my life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
