Matthew 2:1-12


Did you know that the 3 wise men were not Israelites? The root of the translation for “wise men” is actually the word “magos,” men who were considered magicians. However, their trade was based in science, specifically astrology.


Astrology is the study of the stars, and in modern times, it has been corrupted with demonic zodiac signs. However, it was God who created the constellations. He inscribed the testimony of Christ in the stars and has given them to us as prophetic elements.


Genesis 1:14

And God said, "Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years."


The wise men in Matthew 2 came from the East of Jerusalem, which refers to Persia and Arabia at that time. God caught the attention of these astrologers with a star signifying both the birth of the King of the Jews and His specific location (in the manger). However, the significance of this is found in the following scripture.


Psalm 72:10-11

10 The kings of Tarshish [Persia] and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba [Southwest Arabia] and Seba shall offer gifts. 11 Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.


Once again, Matthew is proving that Jesus’ life fulfilled the prophecies of old. What a meticulous God!

There seems to be some similarities between the 12 constellations and the 12 tribes of Israel. For example, what is called Leo is actually the Lion of the Tribe of Judah and Aquarius, the unstable waters of Reuben. Can you find the others?

I always felt in My heart there was some truth about the stars but I also believe it qas perverted by man to look at creation for direction and not God. I also like how the truth is revealed about it example Leo is the tribe of Judah etc. I Can't think of any at the moment lol

Everything about this one was awe-mazing! From learning who the wise men were to the fact that the star carried a whole sign and message. So cool! God is so intentional and creative and true to His word. Always thought it was just a super bright star in the sky that they followed lol (that's how TV shows it) but wow! Typing this it also came to that He truly does speak to each of us in ways we understand!
