No, it’s NOT the “Christmas” or “Bethlehem” Star!

Myriads (including the news media) are insisting that the conjunction occurring on December 21st is one of two things: (1) It’s either the Christmas/Bethlehem Star, or (2) a bad omen kicking off the winter solstice, which is “pagan.”

SIGH! People it is neither; it's a simple conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn!

The only thing unique about this Jupiter/Saturn conjunction is how close they will appear to each other (one-tenth of a degree), which hasn't happened for 400 years.

As for the winter solstice, this is completely coincidental. The solstice is simply the farthest south the sun appears in the Northern Hemisphere, which simply marks the beginning of winter. There’s nothing “pagan” about it...

Yes, Scripture commands that we NOT serve. worship or entertain "other gods" or idols of any kind (and those who do, will reap their just desserts on Judgment Day!). In the meantime, YOU need not have anything to do with those types; just shake the dust from your sandals and keep your eyes on YHWH/Yeshua/Torah.

But if someone wishes to celebrate the first day of winter (or any other season) by roasting marshmallows over an open fire, or hoisting a glass of wine to the heavens, can that automatically be labeled "pagan" or evil; and does it give you some special right to harass them? YHWH made the seasons. If someone wishes to rejoice and celebrate the occasion, it's THEIR business!

Anyway, if you have skies clear enough to enjoy the upcoming conjunction on December 21st, REJOICE in the fact that YOU get to be witness to a rare occurrence - and don't try to turn it into something it's not....

Remember the wisdom of Timothy:

1 Timothy 4:7 Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness…
