Who would have ever imagined that God had long ago placed the starry constellations in such a precise way, that they would become a heavenly portrait of the Gospel of Jesus Christ?

.

It’s such an incredible idea, that those who do finally discover and confirm these signs for his or her own self, they will no doubt continually marvel at this heavenly gift right up to the time when Christ appears in the clouds of glory!

“WISE MEN STILL SEEK HIM!”

(A currently popular saying)

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Starry_Night_at_La_Silla.jpgBut in addition to the sheer wonder of it all, they give God’s people confidence that the Way that He is now wanting them to go has been clearly marked out by these heavenly sign-posts!

.

Yes, just as that  star long ago guided the wise men from the East to fore-promised Messiah, these “signs in the Sun, Moon, and stars” are now guiding wise men today, to the long-awaited Return of the Son of Man! (see Luke 21:25)

.

And so, that first star 2,000 years ago was a fore-runner of Arcturus, as this great star now guides its sons (and daughters) in these last moments.

ARCTURUS, THE GUIDING STAR TODAY

.

Listen as God Himself asks this question…“or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?” Job 38:32

.

This little prophecy, tucked way back into that Book of Job, is now being fulfilled as we behold that very bright star, Arcturus, seemingly lead these great constellations on a northward sojourn through the dark night sky.

STUDY, BEREAN, STUDY!

.

And this heavenly scroll of constellations reveal the great love of God, inscribed in the very heavens, awaiting to be discovered by any Noble Berean who is willing to spend the necessary time carefully and prayerfully searching out this great prophetic heavenly message for his or her own self!

.

And their efforts will be richly and eternally rewarded!

“WE HAVE SEEN HIS STAR!”

.

But tucked into today’s devotional is a wonderful little 19 minute audio reading from Ellen White’s book, “The Desire of Ages”, entitled, “We Have Seen His Star”.

.

This Chapter 6 from her book, written in story form, is the well-known and greatly beloved Bible account of those wise men from the East as they followed that guiding star 2,000 years ago.

.

And so, the Noble Berean is highly encouraged to just scroll down to almost the bottom of this page to listen…

An easy way to find Arcturus is to follow the arc of the handle of the Big Dipper, in the spring through fall (these are the months in which Arcturus is visible).
