This event has not occurred in over 2000 years and is exactly as described in the bible that led the shepherds to Jesus Christ on the day of His birth...and eventually led the 3 Kings to Him. This, in my opinion (and many others), is yet another majestic sign (harbinger/warning) that God is asking us to follow Him and put our focus on Him versus ourselves. Probably one of the most substantial signs we have seen in recent times since 9/11 (2001) and then the economic crash 7 years later (2008), and now the star of Bethlehem 7 years after the economic crash (7,7,7). God is rallying His people and sending a message to our nation and many others that the time is now to repent and turn back to Him.
"There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea."
The above scripture reminds us that God is keeping His word as He always does...Just as he is doing with other prophecy, such as the Final Tetrad, which is happening now to include a solar eclipse and is the last occurrence mentioned in the Bible before the time of tribulation. Additionally, there is a significant feeling of political insecurity and doubt as to whether, or not our U.S. alliance with Israel will endure as we continue furthering our relationships with Iran and Syria. Both of these countries are the ancient sworn enemies of Israel and are currently surrounding Israel's borders with militant intent. The signs of God's judgement seem to be everywhere we look.
"When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near"
Also interesting, is the fact that just 4 days prior to God's reveal of the Bethlehem star (June 26th, 2015), gay marriage was nationally legalized/accepted and written into U.S. law books. This event, like so many others is a direct testament that our nation is turning it's back on God and choosing to go it's own way. Just as increasing as these events are, so too are God's responses becoming closer and closer together and with more severity. It's the belief of myself and many other prophetic studies that the Bethlehem star is another one of the more significant signs that we have seen. Many of us believe that many more will be fulfilled in detail as written in God's word.
This country was established and founded on our dedication and service to God, which is the sole reason that our country has been so blessed. As a matter of fact, the very first inauguration of our first president (George Washington) commenced and concluded (on April 30th, 1789) with our nation's dedication and commitment of this country to God and His purpose. Even more astounding (and telling) is that this inauguration took place in the exact same location known today as "Ground Zero" (9/11 attack).
The times today are more than evident for us to realize that we have turned away from God as a nation, with our self-worship (social "Me"dia), idolization of wealth, and removal of God and prayer from our children's schools on a national level. In addition, we have now (as a nation) told God that we reject His laws of morality and accept perversion with open arms....Even the White House (the highest house in the land) was bathed in the proclaimed celebratory colors of the rainbow on this very unsettling day. Ground Zero was also lit up with the same defiant colors. Not only have we accepted this as a nation, we have represented the anthem of this perverse declaration with a symbol that God specifically gave us after the flood (Noah and the ark) as a "promise". This promise was made to His people that the flood will never return. Again, declaring our defiance as a nation and telling God "We don't need you...We'll do things our own way".
The signs we are seeing today are just more evidence that the hedge of God's protection is being removed and that we will see His hand continue to move. Many (including myself) believe these events will continue to increase in both frequency, and intensity.
God, in all His power is incredibly kind and forgiving, but He will not be mocked. This is only evidenced by the war against Israel by the Assyrians (which, by the way, were terrorists) in the book Isaiah. God removed His hedge of protection for the very same reasons we are seeing reenacted today, allowing enemies to enter...Each attack was also a warning sign, in which, He offered a chance for the people to return to Him and they refused...Over and over again. There are many other precise details to explain the happenings during those biblical times, but the end result was that Jerusalem was overthrown and desolated. This very same series of events written in the book of Isaiah are happening now, in the same order, with incredible detail. It's as if history is literally repeating itself. It's all there...I urge you to do some research on this and your findings will be irrefutable.
All that said, God is still (with every warning), continuing to stretch out His hand, asking each one of us to follow Him...Each person has the chance to repent and to turn to Him and follow Him, but time is running out. Now is the time for each of us to get right with God. If you haven't asked God into your life, you are running out of time to do so...Eternity is a long time...You sure putting this off is worth the risk?
God loves you and desperately wants you to return to Him. That said, He will not force Himself on you, as He wants you to want a relationship with Him. This is the reason behind free will. The time of tribulation is clearly drawing near...Please don't allow yourself to be left behind. Act now! Click here to get a step-by-step understanding of how to receive God into your life.
"So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that the kingdom of God is near. Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all has taken place."
