“Where is he that is born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the East, and are come to worship him.” Matthew 2:2
From this one portion scripture we have great prophetic fulfillment.
- From Numbers 24 we read A star shall come forth from Jacob, A scepter shall rise from Israel.
- From Isaiah 9 The people who walk in darkness will see a great light, Those who live in a dark land, the light will shine on them.
- From Luke 1 Zachariah prophesies that Jesus appears to give light to those that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death to guide our feet into the way of peace.
- From John 1 we find that John was not the light but was sent first to bear witness of the true light which lights every man that comes into the world.
As the Bright morning Star, Jesus is the light of the world who shines into the darkness and the darkness does not and never will overpower His light. While Isaiah tells us in the last days darkness will abound the promise to us is His light shines forever! The glory of the lord is seen upon us and men are drawn to His light.
Where is He that is born King of the Jews? He is in us. As carriers of the presence we are children of the Light. To shine as He shines. To love as He loves. To give from the very essence of His heart and always dispelling the darkness whenever we can.
We have seen His star and worship Him. In this Season may others see His light in the reflection of our lives.
David and I trust this Christmas is one that brings your great rest and peace in Him as you celebrate with family and friends.
Merry Christmas with Love,
