Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years.” Genesis 1:14
This was the day the stars were created.
The constellations help mark seasons.
Their positions are the key to navigation.
But that wasn’t all God had in mind.
“Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him. … behold, the star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. Matthew 2:2, 9-10
Jesus was the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world (Revelation 13:8).
It is not too much to imagine
the star that would mark His birth was chosen,
that’s its purpose was determined
on the day it was created.
