Matthew 2:2 “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”
Some have claimed the “star” wasn’t really a star but a supernova or a conjugation of the planets. Sometimes people look to find ways to explain the miracles of God without having to give that credit to Him. However, since this “star” moved and settled right over the specific spot, the spot where Jesus was born, the only way to explain it is a supernatural act of God. This star was very similar to another supernatural act of God that is one of my favorite verses in the Bible. In Exodus 13:21-23 God’s word tells us how He lead the children of Israel; how He went before them and guided them: “And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of fire to give them light, that they might travel by day and by night. The pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night did not depart from before the people.” God guides His people He sometimes uses pillars of smoke and fire, He sometimes uses huge stars in the sky, and sometimes He uses His word, but in either case He never leaves His children to flounder without a direction.
