The star the Magi saw guided them to Jerusalem (east to west) and then on to Bethlehem (north to south). This was a special star identified as "His Star." This star appeared to them while they were in the east and they knew that it signified the Christ or Messiah had arrived. God uses the stars in the heavens to bring messages to the world about Himself. In today's study we will explore how God uses the stars to communicate to us and then we will conclude with a discussion of the special star of Bethlehem. We must always remember that Satan has corrupted God's message to us and the message in the stars is typical of that corruption. Nevertheless, Christ told us to search the Scriptures (John 5: 39). This we must do to understand what God wants us to know. Signs therefore, are meant to lead one to something else. The sign itself is not the end meaning. It is the method employed to direct our attention to something else. In the stars God is the direct object the signs point to. We should realize that His entire creation which theologians call "general revelation," speak to Him and coming from Him. In fact God charges all mankind to know Him through the 'signs" He has provided.
