Thesis 52: Judgment of the State in Heaven and Earth

When States are overthrown and “archists” are put down, their angelic guardians are also judged, and the “stars,” “sun” and “moon” are said to cease “shining” with respect to that empire.[1]

1. Isaiah 24:23; 13:10; 34:4; 60:19-20; Jeremiah 4:28; Joel 2:10,31; 3:15; Ezekiel 30:18; 32:7,8; Matthew 24:29; Revelation 17-19; Revelation 21:22-25; 22:5; #88.

David Chilton, "The Sun, Moon, and Stars," in Paradise Restored.
James B. Jordan, " Sun, Moon, and Stars," chap. 5 in Through New Eyes.
On stars and angels, see James B. Jordan, Judges: God's War Against Humanism, p. 102.
Along these lines, see also, Baalism vs. Predestination. Pagans worship the star-demons, Christians understand them to be controlled by God. This was the irony of the "natural" plagues in Egypt.
