Clockwork Stars

The Star of Bethlehem by Rick Larson has been a life-changer for me. It is not only the catapult and scientific basis for my current writing project Wise Men, but it has been instrumental in bringing a new level of Peace That Passes Understanding.

This Peace began as Rick Larson showed what the Star of Bethlehem actually was, and continued with revealing the day and time Jesus died on the cross. The beginning and the end of Messiah’s life, poetically cataloged in the cosmos.

The revelation that brought me peace, though, was when he said this: For if the Star wasn’t magic or a special miracle from outside of the natural order, then it was something even more startling. It was a Clockwork Star. And that is overwhelming. The movement of the heavenly bodies is regular, like a great clock.

The Clockwork Star finally means that from the very instant at which God flung the universe into existence, he also knew the moment he would enter human history in the person of Jesus of Nazareth. He marked it in the stars. And from before the beginning of time as we experience it, God knew the very moment when Messiah would breath his last on the cross

Those conclusions completely reordered my relationship with time, and with waiting.

If the God of the Universe can so precisely, so intricately, set all things in motion from the very moment of creation, He can certainly handle me running 5 minutes late.

If He can handle me running 5 minutes late, He can handle the million other time-related circumstances of my life, including when His promises are fulfilled.

Waiting takes on a whole new level of certainty. His plans, His purposes, His promises, will arrive, like clockwork, in His perfect timing.

Isn’t it amazing what we can learn from a Star?
