Witness of the Stars
by E.W. Bullinger
For more than 2,500 years the world has been without written revelation from God. The question is, “Did God leave Himself without a witness?” The Bible clearly answers with an emphatic no! The original message of salvation through Jesus Christ was firmly imbedded in the constellations in the heavens. The book of Job, chapter 38, refers to these constellations as the Mazzaroth. Clearly God put these signs in the heavens for past generations to observe, as well as for our generation. We stand in awe of God’s heavenly hosts and the amazing clockwork they provide.
Building upon ancient astronomical sources and current scientific data E.W. Bullinger displays how the constellations bear witness to the accuracy of biblical prophetic truths. Numerous celestial charts and diagrams are provided to land vivid support to his conclusions. With the Psalmist, one discovers that “the heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament showeth His handiwork. This encourages Bible students to look upward to those constellations for the coming of Christ.
In this unique book, long considered the “bible” of biblical astronomy (not astrology) Bullinger takes Psalm 19 and uses it as a base, expanding our understanding of astronomy to include confirmation of God’s Word. This book is of extreme value to the advanced students of Christian evidences. For the average Christian, it offers a greater appreciation for God’s handiwork in the heavens.
