Can you imagine the wondrous feeling an astrologer receives as he gazes into the heavens? On a clear starry night how amazing it is to look up and as far as the eye can see stars twinkle brilliantly resembling diamonds sparkling atop a black velvet night.
In ancient times those who spent their time searching the heavens were considered men of wisdom. They studied the scripture to find answers and investigated the things to come. A birth had been foretold by the prophets of old. Would it come to pass was the question?
When would it be?, how would it change the plight of man? and who has the answers?. As they watched the heavens something extraordinary appeared. From the many stars in the heavens one single Star surpassed the others,its glow more brilliant then all the rest.
As a light house sitting atop the hill leads the ships safely to harbour the star became guide to those who recognized the importance of it’s appearance, prepared for and began a journey of discovery. We don’t know how long their journey or how far they came but no obstructions deterred quest.
They knew at journeys end would be a great prize. Continuously they traveled watching the star from afar. Suddenly it appeared the star had stopped moving,concentrating it’s light over a cave in the hill side. Drawing near their expectancy grew, entering into the cave their eyes beheld a glorious sight.
Resting quietly in a troth filled with straw lay a new born babe. The star light announced the birth of a king leading the wise men too this perfect scene. They presented too the child gifts fit for a king; gold frankincense and myrrh. Angels on high joined the star in the night sky singing a serenade to the world.
“Joy to the world the Lord has come let earth receive her king”
My revelation as I sit by the pool of grace.
