Mazzaroth - Capricorn Dec 22 - Jan 19

CAPRICORNUS (The fish-goat). The goat of Atonement slain for the Redeemed.

Capricorn the Goat-fish - A creature that is partly a dying goat signifying the sinful people that perished in the Flood, and partly a lively fish signifying the 8 righteous people that escaped judgment on Noah’s Ark. 


Capricorn represents both judgment and mercy. Just as humanity was saved from the Great Flood via the Ark, all future humanity will be saved by Christ. 


Jesus is the fulfillment of the sacrificial goat and believers are represented by the fish.


In Capricorn the dying goat comes a living fish.


"Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone. But if it dies, it bears much fruit." John 12:24

What Do You Set Your Clock By? – Story of the Curious Watchmaker

We dare not make ourselves of the  number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves; but  they that commend themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.” – 2nd Corinthians 10:12


There is story about a watchmaker who lived at the turn of the 1900’s that set up his shop in a small village. This small village was unique in the fact that eighty percent of the men were employed at the local mill. After the watchmaker had opened up his little shop, he noticed that every single day since the opening, a gentleman would come by and pause for a moment, take out his pocket watch, adjust it very carefully by the clock in the window, put it back in his pocket, and then go on his way.


This went on for a period of weeks. Finally, out of curiosity, the watchmaker stopped him one morning and said to him, “I’ve noticed for the last of number of weeks now, you’ve come by, adjusted your watch, and gone on your way.” He continued, “Just  out of curiosity, I was just wondering what exactly you do for a living that you pass by my little shop every morning and set your watch to start your day?”


The gentleman  explained that he was the foreman down at the mill, and it was his  responsibility to blow the whistle at lunch time. He went on to explain why it was so important that he have the correct time each day because not only does the whistle signify that it is time for the men to knock off from work for an hour, but that it was amazing how many people rely on this whistle to set their clocks by.


The watchmaker sort of smiled and chuckled to himself and said, “That’s interesting, ever since I’ve been in this village, I’ve been setting my clock according to your whistle.”


I think people tend to do this spiritually also. We look at others and compare  ourselves. We adjust our way of thinking by their way of doing things, and the Bible says that if we do this, we are not wise, they that commend themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.”


Always be mindful  that others may be setting their clocks by what they see in you life. God made you a unique individual. Always remember that He views you from Eternal perspective and has a unique plan for your life. Do not be conformed to ways of this world that is passing away. Always make good  use of your time and to be mindful of it for you do not know how much  time you have. Psalm 90:12 says, “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” This world is racing towards destruction. Do not be conformed to it.  Set your clock to a higher calling in Jesus. the author and finisher of your faith.

<>–ON THE VALUE OF TIME –<>


Dr. Cotton Mather would express his regret after the departure of a visitor that had wasted his time, 


I had rather have given him a handful of money than have been kept thus long out of my study.”


Queen Charlotte said, 


I am always quarrelling with time: it is so short to do something and so long to do nothing.


John Bradford used to say, 


I count an hour lost in which I have done no good by my pen or tongue.”


Seneca taught that time was the only thing of which it is a virtue to be covetous.
