The Star of Bethlehem


Hubby discovered a new Youtube channel: Secureteam10 – your #1 source for underground news leaks.

Showing me pillars on the Moon, pyramids on Mars and oh how many unidentified flying objects – such as persistent lights in the air, miles-wide wrecks on the bottoms of our oceans or mysterious asteroids/comets in space – it scared me. ‘Wow, if this is for real, then what shall we do?,’ said I with a quiver in my voice.

‘Nothing,’ replied he in his clear and crazy voice. ‘Why should we do something? We’re watchers – as far as it goes.’

‘But hey. What if these things turn hostile?’

‘Don’t point your rifle at the aliens! – remember what they said in Independence Day?’

‘Uh-huh, let them shoot first. Not a good idea. Yet striding beyond Hollywood’s blockbuster aliens, wondering why are you so calm.’

‘Look, Doris, do you think that these objects are recent appearances on the skies? Do you think that before the modern era, before Youtube, before the regular dude with an iPhone pointed at the sky, before the observers observing, do you think that the aliens stood hidden?, or were nonexistent just because we didn’t see them? The universe is teeming with intelligent life for eons, long before Adam and long before there was a year on earth for humans to count.’

‘You telling me that these amazing images, for us, are just business as usual, for them?’

‘I do.’

‘Then why would they be interested in us?’

‘Why do you ask me this question, knowing that I know you know the answer?’

‘Only to tease you.’ And then it dawned on me. ‘How about the Star of Bethlehem?’

‘How about it?’ He put his notebook aside, took the Bible and started to read from Luke to me.

Now there were shepherds in that region living in the fields and keeping the night watch over their flock.
The angel of the Lord appeared to them and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were struck with great fear.
The angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.
For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord.
And this will be a sign for you: you will find an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.”
And suddenly there was a multitude of the heavenly host with the angel, praising God and saying:
“Glory to God in the highest
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

The Visit of the Shepherds.

When the angels went away from them to heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go, then, to Bethlehem to see this thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us.”
So they went in haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger.
When they saw this, they made known the message that had been told them about this child.
All who heard it were amazed by what had been told them by the shepherds.
And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart.
Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, just as it had been told to them.

‘Extraterrestrial close encounter of the fifth kind.’

‘Yes. Mario Barth said that the government is spending too much money on UFO contingency plans. See that they always go to the peasants first. The friendly ones at least.’

‘Funny and true. Now please read me some about the intellectuals, will you?’

The Magi Visit the Messiah
After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”

When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him. When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born. “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied, “for this is what the prophet has written:

“‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;
for out of you will come a ruler
who will shepherd my people Israel.’”
Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared. He sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him.”

After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.

The three wise men traveled from the East, following a ‘star’ that was leading them West. No star rises from the West. And no star stops. No natural star, that is. See the reasoning of a modern Astronomer.

But what would actually work? To satisfy Matthew’s account for the Star of Bethlehem we would need an object that:

Is very distinct and noticeable;
Doesn’t move with the stars in a normal fashion;
Was visible to the Magi during their travels and on the day when they found Jesus;
Was not visible to Herod;
Was not visible to any other sources;
Was last seen only in the greater Bethlehem area.
There is really only one conclusion: The Star of Bethlehem was a UFO.

Now I’m not saying that it was a flying saucer. I’m saying that no natural object behaves in a way that the Bible describes. It matches no known object. It has no equal. It is an unidentifiable flying object.

Star of Bethlehem: Heavenly and Scientific Mystery | The Huffington Post

Stars and planets and ships and rocks have been up on the skies for eons.
Jesus Christ ever-exists before time, and heavens, came to be.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds (æons), Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father;

The peasants from around, the wise guys from the east, the aliens from distant planets, they ascended or descended to Bethlehem – on foot, on camel, on star – to see their Maker in flesh and blood. This is what makes our planet so interesting.

 

One thought on “The Star of Bethlehem

  1. Beautiful thoughts you and hubby put forth to think about. So many people today see the light phenomenon and scream we will be attacked because of all the sci fill they watched and the government’s doom and gloom the you bring up the very less thought about star of Jesus. Instead of going crazy about it people need to think could be aliens could be gases causing light from other new planets we have never studied and as I agree with you why could it not be Jesus watching over us. People need to worry more about the others around them with love and caring we would be stronger against aliens and would be pleasing in the eyes of God for caring for others. Thank you my good friends for beautiful thoughts to ponder.
    Hugs from your loving caring friend
