Navigating Christmas star again!

Dec 24, 2017 | Dr. Thomas Abraham

A star was risen as the sign of the birth of Christ.
“Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.” (Mathew 2:2 )

The wise men considered this sign so seriously that they didn’t give up for two long years until they reached baby Jesus. The star went before them! But on the other hand, Jewish scholars who were around couldn’t find Him even though they were deeply in search of the prophecies concerning the incarnation of Christ!

That is why Jesus said:
“You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me. But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life” (John 5;39,40)

We know that this same Christ, who was found in a manger of Bethlehem as a baby, is going to come again on the clouds as the King of Kings, accompanied by the great trumpet. In the Bible, there are more prophecies about the signs of the second coming of Christ than about His birth in the flesh. Among all the signs, the most obvious sign that Jesus Himself prophesied was that the Jewish people will be scattered all over the world and that they will be gathered and returned to their land before His return. Nearly impossible thing to happen! But after 20 centuries it happened and they became a nation in 1948! President Donald Trump’s declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has a very important significance in prophecies concerning the trumpet of our Lord! The morning star of that GREAT CHRISTMAS we await for is rising up in our hearts!

“We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.” (2 Peter 1:19 )

The day of the Lord – ours too – is about to break. Let’s be awake for our groom’s return!
