of Astrology, to Him, are for the vomit.
is a code, inspired by a recent discussion, about Astrology
found in the Tanach and using a wrapped text. I used one of the
spellings found in the free "English Hebrew Paganism" dictionary,
by Carmit Mizrahi, downloadable from the babylon.com
website here: http://www.babylon.com/category/11/Hebrew.html, since
it could not be found with the usual spellings. 2 occurrences were
expected statistically, and only one was found. It could be extended
to "(the) measures/measurements (or types/chatacters) of Astrology,
to Him, are for the vomit (or to womit/throw up)".
what it could mean, and looked up the term "vomit" in the Bible
using a concordance, and here is what came up:
18:25: "And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof
upon it, and the land itself vomits out
26 You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, and
shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own
nation, nor any stranger that sojourns among you:
27 (For all these abominations have the men of the land done,
which were before you, and the land is defiled;)
28 That the land spue
not you out also, when you defile it, as it spued out
the nations that were before you.
29 For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even
the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.
30 Therefore shall you keep Mine ordinance, that you commit not
any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you,
and that you defile not yourselves therein: I am the LORD your God."
Revelation 3:16: "So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot
nor cold, I will vomit you out of My mouth."
Here is what God has to say about Astrology in the Bible: Isaiah
47:13-14: "All the counsel you have received has only
worn you out! Let your astrologers come forward, those stargazers who
make predictions month by month, let them save you from what is coming
upon you. Surely they are like stubble; the fire will burn them up.
They cannot even save themselves from the power of the flame. Here are
no coals to warm anyone; here is no fire to sit by."
verses where the word "vomit" is used:
20:22: "You shall therefore keep all My statutes, and all
My judgments, and do them: that the land, whither I bring you to dwell
therein, vomit you not out.
20:15: "He has swallowed down riches, and He shall vomit them
up again: God shall cast them out of his belly."
Proverbs 23:8: "The morsel which you have eaten shall you vomit
up, and lose your sweet words."
Proverbs 25:16: "Have you found honey? Eat so much as is sufficient
for you, lest you be filled therewith, and vomit it."
Proverbs 26:11: "As a dog returns to his vomit, so
a fool returns to his folly."
Isaiah 19:14: "The LORD has mingled a perverse spirit in the midst thereof:
and they have caused Egypt to err in every work thereof, as a drunken
man staggers in his vomit."
Isaiah 28:8: "For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness,
so that there is no place clean."
25:27: "Therefore you shall say unto them, "thus says the LORD of hosts,
the God of Israel; Drink you, and be drunken, and vomit,
and fall, and rise no more, because of the sword which I will send among
Jeremiah 48:26: "Make you him drunken: for he magnified himself against
the LORD: Moab also shall wallow in his vomit, and
he also shall be in derision."
2 Peter 2:22: "But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb;
"he dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow
that was washed to her wallowing in the mire."
are many other scriptures about astrology/witchcraft, and interpreters
10:2: "Thus says the LORD "learn not the way of the heathen, and
be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed
Deuteronomy 4:19: "Be careful that you don't worship the
sun, moon, and stars."
Deuteronomy 17:2-5 in the Old Testament says that those who worshipped
the sun, moon, or stars were to be stoned (obviously a serious
matter then): Deuteronomy 17:2: "If there be found among you,
within any of your gates which the LORD your God gives you, man
or woman, that has wrought wickedness in the sight of the LORD your
God, in transgressing His covenant,
3 And has gone and served other gods, and worshipped them,
either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have
4 And it be told you, and you have heard of it, and enquired
diligently, and, behold, it be true, and the thing certain, that such
abomination is wrought in Israel:
5 Then shall you bring forth that man or that woman, which
have committed that wicked thing, unto your gates, even that man or
that woman, and shall stone them with stones, till they die."
Leviticus 20:6: "And the soul that turns after such as have familiar
spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even
set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people."
Deuteronomy 18:10: "There shall not be found among you any one
that makes his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that
uses divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter,
or a witch,
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard,
or a necromancer.
12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD:
and because of these abominations the LORD your God does drive
them out from before you."
Daniel 2:27-28 talks of how God kept King Nebuchadnezzar's dream and
its interpretation secret from the astrologers, magicians or dream interpreters,
and soothsayers. However, he revealed it to his prophet Daniel:
"Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, the
secret which the king has demanded cannot
the wise men, the astrologers, the
magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king;
But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and makes
known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days."
Acts 16:16-18 talks of a girl who was possessed by an evil spirit that
enabled her to be a fortune teller. Paul commanded the evil spirit to
come out of her in the name or authority of Jesus, and the spirit left
Deuteronomy 18:9-11: "Let no one be found among you who sacrifices
his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery,
interprets omens, engages in witchcraft..."
2 Chronicles 33:5-7: "He sacrificed his sons in the fire in the
Valley of Ben Hinnom, practiced sorcery, divination and witchcraft,
and consulted mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the eyes of
the LORD, provoking him to anger."
