Seven Days of God’s Process, 11. The Fourth Day

[Neh 6:3 KJV] 3 And I sent messengers unto them, saying, I [am] doing a great work, so that I cannot come down: why should the work cease, whilst I leave it, and come down to you?

This is what Jesus is referring to when He said “work while it is day…” What is the work? John 5:19 tells us the work that Jesus stayed occupied with:

[Jhn 5:19 KJV] 19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.

In the day, you are focused on what is right in front of you and occupying yourself with the Father’s business. Now when it is night – that is the time when God opens your eyes to see in the heavens, what is going on behind the curtain of the natural. What are you looking at? People. That is what the sun, moon and stars represent. In Gen. 37:9, Joseph dreamed that he saw his parents and his brethren like the sun, moon and stars making obeisance to him. In Genesis 15, God told Abraham to look at the stars and then clarified for him that what he was really looking at was his seed – his sons and daughters to come.

[Gen 15:5 KJV] 5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.

When God told Abraham to TELL the stars, the word he used was “stele”, which is an ancient writing instrument. He wasn’t just telling Abraham to count, He was telling Abraham to connect the dots. God promised that Abraham’s seed would be as the stars of the heavens, the sand of the seas and the dust of the earth. Abraham had three sets of children:

Ishmael – the Sand Seed (Gen. 17:20).

Isaac – the Star Seed (Gen. 15:5).

Sons of Keturah – Dust Seed (Gen. 25:6).

Stars are set in constellations, whose origin dates back to the Hebrew Mazzaroth:

[Job 38:32 KJV] 32 Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?

This is the Hebrew “Zodiac” that pre-dated the Greek system. The Mazzaroth was established by God, whereby the heavens (you and I) declare the glory of God:

[Psa 19:1 KJV] 1 [[To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.]] The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

Have you ever wondered how you wound up in the unusual relationships you have with other Christians? As a believer, you have fellowship and relationship with people whose only connection or commonality to you is found in Christ. They are in your constellation. Constellations were created originally by God to declare the gospel. God placed you in the society of believers you are in, not randomly, but because He is saying something to the world and to you about those relationships if you have the discernment to “tell the stars”.

Now – not everyone in your life is a star. Some people in your lives are just big, hot balls of gas. You know who I am speaking of. Faces just flashed before your eyes when you read this. This is where discernment comes in. When you come to a place in God that you have moved on the face of your deep, and spoke creatively in concert with God’s blessing for your life, people will be attracted to you. When you accept the boundaries, and set the boundaries that God lays out for you, and make the division that causes mixture to dissipate, it will attract people to your life that will require discernment. When you move into God’s third day, where you become Lord of your own harvest and everything you say and do becomes as effective as if God said it or did it – people are going to seek you out.

Have you ever seen someone come into a sum of money? They were broke once and had very few friends. Then things changed and suddenly they are surrounded by every second cousin, family friend and buddy. This is a time that discernment needs to take place. When you need to look past the surface and say of the people around you, are they “dust seed”, “sand seed” or “star seed”? What am I talking about? I’m glad you asked.

Planets. What are planets? They are big balls of dust. Dust is the serpent’s food (Gen. 3:14). They don’t produce light (God is light), they only absorb light and to some degree, reflect light. We identify the planets orbiting ancient stars by the light they reflect. You identify people in your life by the light they reflect. Do you see God reflecting off of them, or something else? Remember that Abraham knew what he was dealing with where the sons of Keturah were concerned. He gave them gifts and sent them away. Do you ever have people give you a prayer request but you know they are after something else? These are the dust seed relationships in your life.

If you are the star seed of God (and you are), there are going to be people in orbit around you that are like planets. They will benefit by being in your life but there is no life, no glory and little benefit to be had from them. The sun does not benefit from the earth, the earth benefits from the sun. You need to know the difference, otherwise, you will put expectations on the dust seed relationships in your life and get offended and off track with what God is doing in your life.

Let’s look at another metaphor of planetary bodies to identify relational dangers you will experience as you find your place in one of God’s constellations of relationship:

[Jde 1:12-13 KJV] 12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds [they are] without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; 13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.

What is a wandering star? It really isn’t a star, but a comet. A comet is similar in make up to a planet with one exception – it has no stable orbit and its composition is dominated by ice. Watch out for the people who blaze across the scene in your life and your church. They make a big splash and call attention to themselves, but there is ice water in their veins. They are very compelling. People think comets are spiritual events. They think comets are prophetic. But all they do is make a scene and draw attention to themselves and then they are gone once again into the darkness from which they came. You need to identify these people and save yourself from meddling with them. No matter how spiritual they may seem – withdraw from them. Do not let your orbit transect the trajectory of their agenda, or you may have a planetary disaster that you will have to clean up.

God made planets, stars and comets after making light itself, because in the human condition there is very little unified consistency. Different stars cast a different light. Some bodies (or people) cast no light at all, but they will be in your personal orbit most, if not all of your life. You have to know who they are and you have to know who you are. When you begin to walk in the edenic entitlement of God’s third day – the very next and most important lesson you need to learn is to read the signs and seasons, and look past the natural into the heavens, so you know what is going on and what is coming next.
