And let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years...

I recently read The Stars Speak, by Stewart Custer. I'm generally not into astronomy and telescopes, but I learned some interesting things. One thing I never really thought about was the word signs in Genesis 1:14.

Genesis 1:14-19 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

I was looking for some star pictures, and came across this extremely interesting website:
Basically, this author goes through and tells the ancient names and meanings for Leo the Lion, Hercules, the Twins, etc, drawing parallels with Biblical prophecies. He has a lot of very amazing ideas. I didn't read the entire book (I wish I had it in paper format - I don't really like reading entire books on-line), but what I did read was really cool. The thought of God putting the entire story of Salvation in the sky for people to see each night is incredible.

The Stars Speak is a great book and you have picked some good sky pictures to display. I found the very last sentence in Bullinger's citation that you give to be the most interesting!
