What does this mean for the us? Well, I can't help but think about the star's original purpose which was to announce the birth of Jesus and lead worshipers to Him.
“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.” -Matthew 2:2
But why now?
Bright as ever in all of its splendor, I believe the star is revealing the same message. Simply put, "OUR KING IS COMING!" We don't have much longer. This world is not our home. Make a way for His presence in your heart, turn inward and prepare your soul. This is truly exciting! He's coming back again!
