Stars in the Sky
The stars in the sky pointed the way to Jesus, the Savior of the world. In the beginning it was so.
And God said, Let there be lights in the dome of the sky to separate day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons and for days and years, and let them be lights in the dome of the sky to give light upon the Earth. And it was so. Genesis 1:14-15
God made the stars.
Yahweh planned out the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, from the beginning. The Bible prophesies this from the beginning, but did you know that the history of the stars tell us the coming of the Christ Child? He spoke their creation along with their patterns and cycles.
The Star of Bethlehem, a ministry which teaches how the stars in the sky pointed to the birth of Christ, contains some astounding evidence. Astronomically speaking, in the year of 3 B.C. there was a cycling of the planet Jupiter over the Regulus star (meaning king). Also at this time was the appearance of the Virgo star (meaning virgin in Latin), and the Leo (also Ayre, in Hebrew, or lion in Latin). This display of the conception of Jesus was at hand at the season of the Festival of Booths. All of which is a prophetic marker for the coming of Jesus Christ.
Another light show arrives 2 days after Chanukah that year, which was December 25, 2 B.C. Jupiter and Venus align the night the “star” was reported, over Bethlehem on Tevet 4, of the Jewish calendar. In a pitch black, desert sky, all the people saw was a very bright light over their little town. Many came from near and far.
Historical facts supporting the Biblical truth remind us that there is a Creator. The truth about the birth of Jesus was in the Lord’s creation before anyone understood it.
Lord, help those who struggle to receive You, find their way to salvation this Christmas.
