Star Gospel Nearby Constellations
Aquarius corresponds to the Tribe of Zebulun (Gen 49:13).
"Zebulun shall dwell toward the seashore;The Gospel
And himself toward the coast of ships,
His side toward Sidon. (Genesis 49:13).
The Gospel is the Good News of Jesus Christ, who came into the world and paid for Salvation so that all who believe in Him can have Eternal Life (Rom 1:16; 1 Cor 1:18, 24; 15:3-4).
1 Corinthians 15:3-4The Good News is that Jesus Christ paid for our sins, and we can have Eternal Life by believing in Him (John 3:16). Salvation is through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone (Jn 3:16; Acts 4:12; 16:31).
3 For I delivered to you in the order of first importance what I have already received, that Christ died as a substitute for our sins according to the Scriptures,
4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
When Jesus Christ encountered the Samaritan woman at the well, He used the drinking analogy to give her the Gospel (John 4:7-27).
Jesus answered and said to her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water." (John 4:10, NAS)Drinking water symbolizes believing the communicated Word of the Gospel for Salvation.
John 4:13-14, NASThe woman believed in Jesus Christ and then went out to give the Gospel to the rest of the town (John 4:28-29).
13 Jesus answered and said to her, "Everyone who drinks of this water shall thirst again 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up to Eternal Life."
Sanctification means to be set apart to God as Holy. That can only occur when our sins are forgiven. Forgiveness of sins is only possible through Salvation. The water of Aquarius symbolizes Sanctification.
Jesus answered, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a person is born out from the source of water and the Spirit, he is not able to enter the Kingdom of God. (John 3:5, NAS)Water in the Laver of the Tabernacle symbolized Positional Sanctification. Washing in the water symbolized Positional Sanctification, or being saved. Being born from the source of water refers to the New Birth of spiritual regeneration by the Holy Spirit, Being born from the source of the Spirit refers to the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, which enters a person into union with Christ at Salvation.
The water of the Noahic Flood destroyed the unbelievers but saved the believers. Thus, Aquarius can symbolize being saved from the deluge (1 Pet 3:20). The Savior Planet in Aquarius symbolizes salvation from the Flood.
Baptism of the Holy Spirit
Being saved from the Flood symbolizes the Baptism of the Holy Spirit (1 Pet 3:21). Thus, the Savior Planet in Aquarius can also symbolize the Baptism of the Holy Spirit in which the Holy Spirit enters the believer into union with Christ at Salvation.
Those who carry the Gospel are called witnesses, and communication of the Gospel to others is called witnessing (Jn 15:27; Acts 1:8; 22:15; 1 Jn 1:2; 4:14; Rev 11:3; 17:6). Those who carry the Gospel are witnesses of Jesus Christ. Jesus sent out seventy pairs (two by two) ahead of Him to the cities (Luke 10:1). A pair symbolizes a witness. At the beginning of the Church Age, Jesus called his disciples, "My witnesses" (Acts 1:8).
"But you will receive power after the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and even to the remotest parts of the Earth." (Acts 1:8)Witnessing associated with Aquarius is not to be confused with Gemini, which symbolizes a witness. Aquarius is associated with the function of witnessing for Christ in evangelism.
An angelic herald will present the gospel in the Tribulation (Rev 14:6-7).
Showers of Blessing
Aquarius also symbolizes showers of blessing from Heaven from the Good News of Salvation through faith in Christ (Isa. 55:1, 10-11; Ezek 34:26; Mal 3:10; Eph. 1:3). Just as rain showers refresh the Earth and sustain plant and animal life, spreading the Good News symbolizes God's blessing from Heaven.
Father Must Draw
God the Father is looking out for the unbeliever and gives everyone a fair shake. When the time is right, the Father will draw the unbeliever to Salvation.
No one is able to come to me unless the Father who sent Me draws him, and I will raise him up on the last day. (Jn 6:44)If the individual is positive and wants to be saved at God consciousness, then God will provide the Gospel, so that he can make his decision to believe in Jesus Christ and be saved. God uses Christians to witness, which is the whole meaning of Aquarius. However, no one will be saved unless the Father or the Son draws him (Jn 6:44, 65; 12:32).
God must open the door before the Christian can effectively give the Gospel to the unbeliever (Ex 14:21; Josh 3:16; Acts 14:27; 1 Cor 16:9; 2 Cor 2:12; Col 4:3; Rev 3:7-8). The work of Salvation is Spiritual, and it won't happen unless God is directing it. Therefore, the Christian must wait for an open door before giving the Gospel. The open door will be recognized by the unbeliever expressing his thoughts about God or eternity, or in some way giving a hint that he is searching for answers about a relationship with God. When the door is open, the Christian should present the Gospel clearly and then leave the person alone to make his own decision in the privacy of his own soul. He should not be pressured.
Keys of Heaven
Jesus Christ gave the keys of Heaven to his disciples (Matt 16:19; 18:18; John 20:23).
I shall give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven; and whatsoever you shall bind on Earth, will have been bound in Heaven; and whatsoever you shall loose on Earth, will have been loosed in Heaven." (Matt 16:19)Having "the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven" simply meant that the disciples had the privilege of giving the Gospel. For those who believed in Jesus Christ, Heaven would be opened. They would go to Heaven. God would honor the decision of the new believer, who heard the Gospel from a disciple. For those who rejected the Gospel, Heaven would be closed. They would go to Hades. So, having the keys to Heaven meant the disciples could give the Gospel, and God would honor His Word to accept those who believed and reject all others. It was not some special power reserved for a select group of clergy.
"Whatsoever you shall bind on Earth" refers to those who reject the Gospel. "Will have been bound in Heaven" refers to those left under bondage to sin after rejecting the Gospel. Their sins will not be forgiven. "Whatsoever you shall loose on Earth," refers to the sins of those who believe the Gospel. "Will have been loosed in Heaven" means forgiveness of sins and freedom from bondage to sin after believing the Gospel.
Stick with the Gospel
Only the Gospel can save an unbeliever. His problem is that he is lost. Therefore, it is important for the Christian to stick with the Gospel and not be sidetracked by anything else. Trying to help the unbeliever in various ways or engaging in arguments about the Bible are useless. There is nothing more important to the unbeliever than the issue of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Jn 14:17; 1 Cor 1:18, 21, 23, 25; 2:2, 14). What he thinks of Christ will determine his eternal destiny.
In the Millennium:
Aquarius may be associated with traveling to take the Gospel, especially traveling over the sea. It may be associated with ships. But it may also be associated with transitions into the air, such as a launch or the Resurrection. It may be associated with the Tower of Babel, whose top reached into heaven, and it may be associated with transitions and paradigm shifts. It may be associated with a flood, the Prostitute of Babylon who sits on the waters, or even a duck. Lakes, streams, fountains, or even plumbing may be associated with Aquarius.
