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.

“FOLLOW ME AND I WILL MAKE YOU FISHERS OF MEN”

Matthew 4:19

.

Yes, when on earth, Jesus called His disciples to “Go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in Heaven: and come and follow Me!

.

Well, this wonderful story is retold in Ellen White’s book on the life and ministry of Jesus, The Desire of Ages. And by simply scrolling down this page you can listen to the 17 minute audio reading of the chapter, “The Call By the Sea”.
