Only the Wise Men Went

Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men[a] from the east came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star when it rose[b] and have come to worship him. When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him; and assembling all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. They told him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for so it is written by the prophet:“‘And you, O Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for from you shall come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.’””  Matthew 2: 1-6

Out of all the people living at the time of the birth of Jesus, we only have record of a few wise men, magi, those who studied the stars, making the long trek to check out the prophecy for themselves.  Why is it that there weren’t more who understood the prophecies and sought to follow the sign in the sky?  Did they not spend time in their Word?  Were they too involved in their lives to spend time seeking God?  Did they not look forward to when God would send the promised Messiah?  Did they not know that God uses signs in the heavens to show us things of significance?  We don’t know why it was that only these wise men who went, but we can think of many reasons why people weren’t responding to God’s sign.

It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out”  Proverbs 25:2

But, one thing we can see from the journey of the wise men is that God, in fact, uses His lights in the sky to point us to things He is calling attention to.

14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs [markers] and for seasons [appointed times],[f] and for days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth.” And it was so. .”  Genesis 1:14-15  [God established the lights in the sky to be signs first and then appointed times]

“Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades or loose the cords of Orion? 32 Can you lead forth the Mazzaroth [this is the description of the constellations] [b] in their season, or can you guide the Bear with its children? 33 Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you establish their rule on the earth?”  Job 38:32-33 [God has designed the stars and constellations to move as He chooses to show us things]

“He made the moon to mark the seasons [appointed times, markers, place of meeting]; the sun knows its time for setting.”  Psalm 104:19

From this lesson we see that only those who spent time diligently seeking God and diligently seeking wisdom in regard to the fulfillment of His prophecies were the ones who came.  And, it was only those who knew the secret to looking up to see God’s signs or markers to them.

25 “And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves, 26 people fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world. For the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 27 And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.””  Luke 21:25-28

We see that prior to the coming of the Son of Man that God will set up signs in the sun, moon, and stars, so in order to understand when He will be coming back, in order that we are wise, as the magi, that we must raise up our heads and look to the sky to see God’s signs.

For those who are wise, we have no need for anything to be told to us because we should be well aware of when Jesus will come based on what has already been explained in His Word.  We will not be in darkness as they are, but rather, we will not be surprised and will be expecting His coming.

Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers,[a] you have no need to have anything written to you. For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief. For you are all children[b] of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness. So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, are drunk at night. But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation. For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. 11 Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.”  1 Thessalonians 5:1-11

The Lord has been giving us signs in the sky for the past few years warning us to wake up for His soon coming return.  This started in 2014-2015 with the blood moon tetrads.  This is when the moons turned to a blood red color on 4 perfectly spaced feast days:  Passover 2014 & 2015 & Feast of Tabernacles 2014 & 2015.  Plus there was a solar eclipse in the middle of the 4.  This is not a normal occurrence and is extremely rare and unlikely to have occurred with this precision.  As far as I can figure, these tetrads have only occurred once in the past history.  Israel knows that blood moons are a sign to them of a coming significant event or judgement, and with 4 in a row on feast days, they know this is to not be taken lightly.  We also have discovered that each of these blood moons have been specifically set within the constellation Virgo, drawing our attention to this particular portion of the sky.  This is also not a coincidence and is pointing us to something significant that is to be shown in this set portion of God’s Mazzaroth.

There is also a complete solar eclipse over the US on August 21, 2017 also within the constellation Virgo.  This eclipse is 33 days from the Feast of Trumpets, Sept 23 2017 (see below), and 40 days from the Day of Atonement.

In 2015, the Bethlehem star also appeared again in the sky after a 2,000 year absence.  Astronomers were excited to discover this and wondered what it might mean.

God has been preparing us for an alignment that will be in the sky on Sept 23, 2017, the ending date of the Feast of Trumpets and start of the Jewish new year, in the constellation Virgo.  This alignment is a perfect representation of the description in Revelation 12.

And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth. And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven diadems. His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she bore her child he might devour it. She gave birth to a male child [Greek word translates to male or female, one who is fully devoted & yielded to the Lamb], one who is to rule[a] all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne, and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in which she is to be nourished for 1,260 days. [This ending verse is a description of Israel fleeing and God protecting her for 3.5 years during the Great Tribulation]”  Revelation 12:1

Within the constellation Virgo, she will have the sun at her shoulder clothing her. She will have the moon perfectly at her feet.  Her head will be crowned with the 9 stars of Leo plus 3 wandering stars (planets).  She will have the wandering star/planet Jupiter within her womb for a total of 9 months.  Jupiter has not left her womb for the entire 9 months.  It will then exit her womb on exactly Sept 23, 2017 @ 6:35 pm in Jerusalem.  God has been pointing us to this alignment since 2014 and it’s very significant and could very well open up the book of Revelation.

25 “And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves, 26 people fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world. For the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 27 And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.””  Luke 21:25-28

Wake up and start watching for we know that the time may be close at hand.
