Who Were the Three Wise Men & What Really Was the Star They Followed? An Intriguing Investigation

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Discussions concerning all matters of humanity’s ascension into a higher dimensional existence culminating in 2012

They are one of the most recognized symbols of the festive season, emulated in nativity plays all over the world and whose imagery adorns the front of millions of Christmas cards.

However the three wise men who presented the newborn baby Jesus with gold, frankincense and myrrh could have been larger in numbers if a new interpretation of an ancient document is correct.

An eighth-century script has been translated into English for the first time and throws an incredible new light on the Christmas story.

The Magi was the term, used from at least the fourth century BC, for ancient stargazers who were able to read and manipulate the fate foretold in the skies.

Was the star the Magi followed Jesus himself?

      Christ Himself would NOT lead the ‘wise men’ to King Herod as God’s Word states. IT led them first to King Herod who wanted desperately to KILL the Messiah as an infant….

      In my search for more meaningful answers I submit the following for the reader’s consideration.

      It’s a wonder that men of ‘renowned’ intellect would conjure all manner of naturalistic explanations for the event such as ‘super novas’ or chance alignments of planets, or even Christ Himself, when a more compelling and likely explanation may be found with but a modicum of attention to the known facts regarding these and similar events.

      1.) Unbeknownst to many, the Biblical account states unequivocally that the ‘star’ first led the learned men of the east to king herod who wanted to kill the young Messiah! The evil king herod asked the men to return and tell him our Messiah’s location that he too may ‘pay homage’. When in fact, he so desperately wanted Christ slain that when he later heard that the learned men of the east had returned to their homeland without stopping to inform him, he ordered the deaths of every boy child under the age of 2 years old in the area! The wise men from the east were warned by our Father as they slept to avoid the evil king herod by returning to their home country via a different route!

      2.) As the earth is in a constant state of turning beneath the heavens, a single ‘star’ or celestial event cannot lead persons either on foot or the backs animals anywhere other than in general earthly direction and it is highly unlikely that any kind of super nova or chance alignment would line up directly between the men from the east and king herod enough to be of any directional value.

      3.) It has long been made known by historical accounts in virtually every culture on earth, that exotic flying craft, often appearing as brilliant lights or “stars”, have been visiting earth from the beginning. Many compelling photographic and video accounts exist and are multiplying continually.

      4.) Any event involving a ‘star’ that would lead these men first to Herod would NOT have originated with God, but the fallen ones instead.

      Let’s examine the facts more closely. Our Father reveals in His Word that, in our day, after War in Heaven, satan and his minions would be thrown down to the locality of earth, knowing that they have little time before Christ’s Arrival. “No longer was any place found for them in Heaven.” I have read of UFO accounts that talk of earth being ‘quarantined’ by intergalactic space generals or some such. It sounds laughable, but in light of the Truth, it is not as far fetched as some wish to believe. If indeed they are ‘quarantined’ in our solar system, there would be signs of such, would there not?

      Certainly by now, it is no longer news to some that one may use a simple laser pointer of sufficient power, to point out the ‘stars’ in the night sky. For many that have done so, peculiar results are often easily recorded. I have witnessed many objects that appear as stars, zoom away at incredible speeds….they dip, dive, duck and….you guessed it, Dodge. I’ve had them zoom in so fast from orbital height that in the blink of an eye, they stop only a hundred feet off the ground or so, bathing the whole area in an eerie golden/green metallic light; coming in so close, so fast, that by all appearance, they are going to impact right at the observer’s location! There are now, many videos of people doing the same on the net. One man, John Walson, has employed a creatively designed telescopic video system to film many large, strange objects in earth orbit as of late. His intriguing pics and videos can be found all over the net.

      So, when our Father declares that upon the arrival of Christ and His armies, the ‘stars’ will fall from heaven, we see that He was not talking about the Gas Giants, or stars as we know them, which could not possibly fall to earth. But instead referring these fallen ones, hanging around our neck of the woods, waiting their turns to fall the rest of the way down should they fight against the Prince of Peace!

      For those that wish to know more about this Amazing ‘Reality’ we share, and some very interesting facts regarding how it got here and what lay directly ahead, Please examine the evidence shared here:



      The ‘wise men’ were Parthians, that much is true, but Who REALLY, were the Parthians, themselves?

      Blessings in Christ and may He find us working what is good toward all upon His return!
