Bright and Morning Star

As children we read poems like:
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky.
Some adults are led by astrology or horoscope(horror-scope) and their lives are controlled by
movements of stellar bodies or constellations. These lead to definitions of human behaviour,
character and attitudes as Aries or the goat, Scorpio or scorpion, Pisces or fish and etc.
Many are so hooked on this that they won’t step an inch without consulting the horoscope or
seance. We should not forget that God cast out Satan and his fallen angels into the second
heavens, the legal domain of demon principalities and powers. God did not create us to be
controlled by planets but by His Holy Spirit for as many as are led by the Spirit are the Sons and
daughters of God.
We discover from scripture in Matthew chapter 2 that the search for the New born
Messiah King by astrologers ended in confusion with a resultant effect of the slaughter of
baby boys who were 2yrs and below.
Scripture declares that ‘we have a more sure word of prophecy ; whereunto ye do well that
ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day Dawn, and the day
star arise in your hearts. Knowing this first that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private
interpretation. For prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God
spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.’ IIPeter 1:19-21. Believers must be led by
the Holy Spirit of God, His prophetic word and revelation or rhema word.
Jesus did not come to the world only to die and resurrect in order to take away our sins
but also that this Bright and morning star might dwell in our hearts by His Holy Spirit for
Divine counsel, supernatural knowledge and understanding, revelation, prophetic alignment
and divine guidance.
Now we can end our kindergarten poem as spiritual adults thus :
Twinkle twinkle Bright and Morning Star
I no longer wonder who you are
Dwelling in my heart so near Like a dynamite in my life.
This little baby boy has come to stay and conquer. Merry Christmas and a Prosperous
New year!
