Recently on March 11, 2012, when turning our clocks forward, losing an hour in order to gain more daylight time, my watch suddenly stopped. I sensed it was too unlikely for it to stop at this specific time. Was it prophetic? I was reminded of the day when Joshua was in the heat of battle and time was running out for Israel to overcome their enemy. They needed more daylight to overcome the darkness coming against them. Joshua spoke to the sun (a big star) to stand still, and it obeyed and the moon stayed and didn’t move for a whole day (Joshua 10:12-13). This gave Israel the edge to win:
Then Joshua spoke to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the sons of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, “O sun, stand still at Gibeon, and O moon in the valley of Aijalon.” So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, until the nation avenged themselves of their enemies. Is it not written in the book of Jashar? And the sun stopped in the middle of the sky and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day.
The morning after my watch stopped, during worship at a church meeting, I sensed the Lord saying, “In the Spirit, the sun is standing still again for many who are seemingly losing in their battle so they can be avenged of their enemy. The heavens over you are now coming into alignment to execute justice for many in the earth.”
What does the Bible mean in Judges 5:20 where it says, “They fought from the heavens, the stars from their courses fought against Sisera”? God’s people? Can the stars do warfare? And in Job 38:7, “…the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy.” Do stars really sing? And if they do, what are they singing about? What is so special about the stars to God that He counts the number of the stars and calls each one by their names? (Psalm 147:4). Why in the heavens is each star so significant to the Lord? Could they be playing a significant role in what is going on down here on the earth?
“Forever, O LORD, Your word is settled in Heaven.” (Psalm 119:89). We are in a time where the very heavens are declaring the glory of God more than ever! Fresh revelation from Heaven on high is now being released in these last days. Unusual events are taking place like never before in our solar system.
Could it be that all of creation at this time, including the constellations of the stars, are holding nothing back from worshiping their Creator? It’s no wonder that if you look up on a starry night that the awe overwhelms you. The stars truly are emitting something so profound and yet so simple. Even as each star produces its own light through nuclear fusion, they were also created to shine forth the glorious light of the Gospel.
Scientists have just discovered that the huge star (the sun) in the center of our solar system produces its own music. The Telegraph U.K. reports that Astronomers at the University of Sheffield have managed to record for the first time the eerie musical harmonies produced by the magnetic field in the outer atmosphere of the sun which vibrate like strings on a musical instrument (click here). Imagine every star as a musician and the heavens as a symphony orchestra. I wonder who the Conductor could be?
Romans 1:20 “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse.”
The Stars Remind Lucifer How Far He Has Fallen
Isaiah 14:12-13 “How art thou fallen from Heaven O lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground which did weaken the nations! For thou has said in thine heart, I will ascend into Heaven. I will exalt my throne above the stars of God…”
Satan well knew to whom the stars belonged. The stars to this day remind lucifer of how far he has fallen. Could it be that he heard the morning stars singing (Job 38:7), worshipping their Creator, as he fell down through them? Is it any wonder that he hates those constellations of stars that he could never rise above to be like God? Lucifer went from being the chief worship leader in Heaven to no longer being in the choir.
In these end times even the zodiac is being exposed for what it really represents as in, Eternal Destinies as Revealed in The Stars, by Barbara Hunt, “The stars are not telling anyone their fortune or future. They are telling us about the One and only Person who can – their Creator and ours, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, ‘the bright and morning star'” (Revelation 22:16).
Blowing the Shofar Ministries
Bill Yount has been a member of Bridge of Life in Hagerstown, Maryland, for the past 33 years where he is now an elder and a home missionary. He is currently an advisor at large for Aglow International. Bill faithfully served in prison ministry at Mount Hope for 23 years and now travels full-time, both in the U.S. and internationally, ministering in churches and Aglow circles. “Humility and Humor” characterize his ministry as he brings forth a fresh word that is “in season,” proclaiming the word of the Lord! The shofar (or ram’s horn) is often used in his meetings, breaking the powers of darkness over regions, churches and households. The shofar represents God’s breath blowing into the nostrils of His people, reviving them and awakening the lost. Many of God’s messages, which Bill ministers prophetically, come out of his everyday life with his family and friends.
