What the Stars Say About Pentecost and the Power of the Holy Spirit

by | Feb 14, 2018 | Apologetics, Evangelism & Missions

The constellation of the Holy Spirit, Aquarius (the water pourer), will slip behind the Sun on Feb. 18.

Aquarius, the sixth chapter of the Star Bible, is a picture of a man pouring out an urn of water. Aquarius comes after the constellation Capricorn (the goat), which pictures the sacrificial death and resurrection of Christ. After his resurrection, Christ told His followers to wait for him in Jerusalem to receive the Holy Spirit. Aquarius shows the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, which is often represented by water, that began on Pentecost in Jerusalem.

The three constellations associated with Aquarius are Cygnus (the swan), Pisces Austranis (the Southern fish) and Pegasus (the winged horse). Cygnus contains the Northern Cross, including the black hole where the star of Bethlehem was located. However, it also reminds us of Christ’s ascension from the Mount of Olives and the promise of His return in star names such as Azel (who goes and returns quickly) and Sadr (who returns in a circle).

Pisces Austranis (the Southern fish), is shown as a fish drinking the water poured out by Aquarius. The brightest star of Pisces Austranis, Formalhaut (the mouth of the fish), shows how the believers received the Holy Spirit at Pentecost by speaking in tongues.

Finally, Pegasus (the winged horse) tells us that the spiritual power represented by the Christ / horse constellations of Centaurus (the despised one) and Sagittarius (the archer) is available to all believers now that Christ has returned to heaven. The star named Allenib (the carrier), reminds us how we have been carried along by the Spirit of the Lord (Isa. 63:8-14).

As we look forward to the Return of Christ, we also note that Aquarius moves into the spring season when all four seasonal signs change in A.D. 2121. We are reminded that the Church Age, represented by the current occupant of the Spring equinox, Pisces (the fish), will end when Christ returns and we will worship God in Jerusalem as the Holy Spirit water represented by Aquarius pours out of the temple. (Ezek. 47:1-12).

Of course, Aquarius is not visible to us now because the water of Aquarius is hidden in the fire of the sun. However, right after sunset the constellation Pegasus (the winged horse) is visible just above the horizon. Pegasus, which is recognizable by the great square, would be best viewed through binoculars in the early evening twilight.

So don’t forget to tell someone about the stars of Pentecost and the opportunity to be carried along by the power of the Spirit. {eoa}
