The Star of Bethlehem December 21, 2020 Saturn and Jupiter Will Align

"Where is He that has been born King of the Jews? 
For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship him."

Mark your calendars for December 21st. In just a little over 2 weeks an event is scheduled to happen! We may be privy to a miraculous sight. Saturn and Jupiter will align into a beautiful bright star. The last time this happened was March 4, 1226.
 
An article states that it will appear in the Western sky for about an hour after sunset. It will be the closest on the 21st, but you can look each evening of that week. Although it will be sinking towards the horizon it will be bright enough to be viewed in at twilight.

Jupiter and Saturn will look like a double planet for the first time since the middle ages. I find this so interesting for many reasons. 

One very important reason is that in Christianity the Star of Bethlehem has always been a very historic religious event. Imagine a star brighter than you've seen in your lifetime especially in that day and time leading the Magi to a king, the king Christ Jesus!

The Wise Men Following The Star

Our world is a very magical place full of astounding things that happen all around us. We need to stop every now and then and pay attention to them. I have a tendency to take a lot for granted. This year especially is reason enough to enjoy all of the blessings seen and not seen.

Actually the two planets aligned in the solar system a few weeks ago, but on December 21st they'll appear aligned to us here on Earth. Both of the solar systems giant planets will be gone from the sky by Christmas, but before they do they will stage one dazzling finale on the 21st called The Great Conjunction 2020

Join me as I touch on the subject with a few Bible verses, beautiful images, and some links from other sources.

Wise Men from the East

Matthew 2:1-12
Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the King, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying :Where is he who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East (when it rose) and have come to worship Him."  3 When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him, 4 And when he had gathered all the chief priest and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. 5 So they told him, "In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet: 

6 "But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, Are not the least among the rulers of Judah; For out of you shall come a Ruler Who will shepherd My people Israel."

Wise Men before King Herod

7. Then Herod, when he had secretly called the wise men, determined from them what time the star appeared.8 And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, "Go and search carefully for the young child, and when you have found Him, bring back word to me, that I may come and worship Him also."

9. When they heard the King, they departed; and behold the star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was. 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy.

11. And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary, His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh. 12 Then, being divinely warned in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed for their own country another way.
