Arcturus, The Star That Wise Men Follow

.

.

.

.

.

“there shall come a Star out of Jacob”…

Numbers 24:17

.

behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews?

for we have seen his star in the east,

and are come to worship him.”

Matthew 2:1, 2

.

WISE MEN STILL FOLLOW HIM

.

Have you seen one of those bumper-stickers which says… “WISE MEN STILL FOLLOW HIM”?

.

Well, maybe they’re not so popular anymore.

.

But every now and then, a car passes by with that saying.

.

And it’s a good saying!

ARCTURUS AND HIS SONS

Wise Men (Magi) From East Follow Star To Bethlehem-www.signsofheaven.org-public domain release

.

There exists a lot of intrigue regarding just what star did the Magi from the East follow, which led them to the First Advent of our Savior.

.

The Bible speaks of Arcturus as a possibility.

.

Listen… “canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?” Job 38:33.

.

There’s nothing that is impossible for God!

.

Arcturus may very well have been that star.

FULFILLMENT OF WISE-MEN OF OLD

.

The fact is, Arcturus is that brilliant star (3rd brightest in our heavens) which leads these Gospel constellations, Summer, Fall, and Winter Constellations, to present a picture story, a heavenly allegory of sorts.

.

And just as a single star guided those wise men to the coming Savior, so also, God is just now giving us many stars, to guide us safely to the Second Coming of our Lord and Savior!

.

And so these starry signs seem to be the fulfillment of those wise men following the star, 2,000 years ago!

GUIDE US TO HEAVEN’S GATE…

Signs Of Heaven - Winter Constellations

.

You see, these constellations, summer, fall, and winter, together, tell of the incredible love of God.

.

And Arcturus, our Host Star, will lead to an understanding of God’s Word, which will, in turn, guide God’s people up a narrow pathway; onward and upward through Heaven’s Gate itself, and ultimately into the very heavenly City of God.

.

Oh don’t doubt for a moment that God cannot or will not do this!

 

.

Listen… “Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” Mark 9:23

AN ARDUOUS TASK

.  

We must keep in mind, that those wise men of old, after spending countless hours, searching the Scriptures, to see just exactly what and who those prophecies were pointing to, traveled through the deserts hundreds of miles to find the Messiah.

.

All told, those wise men no doubt spent several years on this quest to find the long-awaited Messiah, from the time they first began searching the Scriptures till the time they returned home from their quest to see the Messiah in person!

AM I A WISE MAN?

.

And so, am I willing to spend months praying and searching out this message, in light of God’s Word, to see if this message is the real thing?http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg

.

In other words, are we truly the dual end-time fulfillment of those wise-men of old?

.

And as such, are we willing to put out the same effort that those wise men of old put out, to discover the truth?

.

And with this message, we don’t even have to travel hundreds of miles!

.

But to really understand this message, does take a great deal of effort.

.

But wise men don’t mind that!

.

After all, that’s the stuff that wise men are made of!
