Are You A Wise Man?

.

.

.

.

“there shall come a Star out of Jacob”…

Numbers 24:17

.

.

.

.

“Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem…

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 seek Him”

Have you seen one of those bumper-stickers which says… “WISE MEN STILL SEEK 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! Because, that was the spiritual meaning to that Bible account, found in Matthew.

ARCTURUS AND HIS SONS

.

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. Nobody knows for sure.

.

And 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.

.

.

.

.

RE-ENACTMENT OF WISE-MEN OF OLD

.

But there is a much greater question that confronts Mankind today.

.

Because, 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 re-fulfillment of those wise men following the star, 2,000 years ago!

GUIDE US TO HEAVEN’S GATE…

.

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

.

And Signs Of Heaven Website will direct the Reader to God’s Word in such a way as to bring out certain Bible truths not currently recognized or emphasized in most of the current Christian theological circles.

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 re-fulfillment of those wise-men of old? 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! That’s the stuff that wise men are made of!
