Word of the Day.... December 21, 2012

1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they reveal knowledge. Psalm 19:1-2

I watched the movie The Star of Bethlehem by Stephen McEveet  last night and I was so very moved.  I really felt that I wanted to share this with all of you.  It’s an astronomical mystery. A strange star is claimed to have appeared at the birth of Jesus of Nazareth. This site is an investigation of the story found in the Biblical Gospel of Matthew, a story often called the ‘Star of Bethlehem.’ It brings the words of Roman and Jewish historians alongside the visions of ancient prophets. It mixes “modern” mathematicians with murderous turmoil in the Roman imperial court. It combines all these with astronomical facts which no one disputes. And it concludes that the star was a real event. 

I believe The Star Of Bethlehem fascinates. For millennia, believers, scoffers and the curious have wondered at the Biblical account of the Star. The Bible recounts unusual, or even impossible astronomical events at Christ’s birth. For many doubters, the account of the Star is easily dismissed as myth. For many believers, it’s a mystery accepted on faith. But what happens if we combine current historical scholarship, astronomical fact and an open mind? Judge for yourself…

I will be posting it over the next three days.  I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.

As we move closer to Christmas let us all remember to keep the love of Jesus Christ in our minds, our hearts and our actions.  Have a Simply Heavenly day!!! God bless you!!!:):)
