Making A Difference In The Nation's Capital Through Prayer And Action

A Mysterious Sign

Dec 5, 2018

Only 8 days before the Live Nativity on Capitol Hill! Please continue to hold this important Gospel witness in your prayers. Part of the Live Nativity includes fully costumed Wise Men bearing gifts for the Christ Child.

Matthew 2 tells the story of the arrival of the Wise Men.

"Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, saying, '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'...and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was."

This Christmas Star is a great mystery. Many believe the star was actually an alignment of the planets that would indicate an important event occurring in the house of Judah. Others think it perhaps was an exploding star, still others a comet. Whatever it was, this celestial spectacle was timed perfectly to coincide with the coming of the Messiah, making it all the more miraculous! And it guided the Magi to the place where they would find Jesus.

Paul told the church at Corinth that prophecy was for believers but signs were for unbelievers. So it is that angels brought the message of the birth of Christ to the Jewish shepherds, but for the Gentile wise men it came in the form of a star – a literal sign from heaven.

What an incredible fulfillment of the words of Isaiah the prophet: "Arise, shine; for thy light is come…And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising."

These Wise Men from the East were the first of the kings to come.

When the fully costumed Wise Men stand between the Supreme Court and the Capitol, they are reminding our legislators, judges, and executive where light and wisdom are to be found. While scholars and academicians may bring data and information, true wisdom and knowledge are only found in Jesus Christ, the light of the world!

Do you see why the Live Nativity is so important? It stands as a declaration of the Gospel; a visible reminder that CHRIST is the reason for Christmas…and that all, including our national leaders, should seek him with the same fervor as did the Magi.

And we need your help to make it happen! Please pray for the Live Nativity.

And PLEASE take a moment right now to make your generous contribution of $25, $35, $50, or even $100 or more to make certain the Wise Men will be standing on Capitol Hill on December 12.
