‘The heavens declare the glory of God’
Finding their way to Jesus, Middle East astronomers followed a star. Stars direct places to go, people to meet and things to come.
Studying stars originated with God. On the fourth day of creation, God put the stars in the sky for “signs, seasons, days and years.”
Satan counterfeits God’s ideas, using stars is one of his biggest deceptions. Worshiping creation rather than the Creator has resulted in curses.
Consequences are death, natural disasters, pollution, corruption, fighting, sickness, suffering and countless evils. Yet, we eagerly wait in hopeful expectation of redemption.
Reminding us that He is in control, God asks: “Can you bring out the stars at the right time?”
Hawaiian history testifies. Stars that led ancient mariners guided more than just their canoes. Love is the evidence. “God is love!” Love as the essence of Hawaiian culture endured despite centuries of brutality, human sacrifice and tyrannical oppression. That gives us hope.
Worthy to be praised, David acknowledges the Lord Almighty. In Psalms he wrote, “I see the moon and stars, which You created. Why is man important to You? Why do You take care of human beings?” The answer is God’s love.
Desiring that no one should perish, “the heavens declare the glory of God.” Beginning with Jesus’ virgin birth, the 12 signs of the Mazzaroth (Zodiac) from Virgo to Leo tell His story.
Stars guide wise men to Jesus. Look for signs of His return. Jesus said: “I am the bright Morning Star … I am coming soon!”
