The Star of Bethlehem

Questioner:  Do you wish to share with us what the Star of Bethlehem was?

The Council:  There have been many explanations by man as to what exactly was the Star of Bethlehem.  Some of the explanations attempt to discredit what the meaning of the Star represents.  In their attempts they only verify and add to the fact that such an occurrence did happen. What they choose to discredit they only substantiate, if one is wise enough to listen to what these have to say.  We are not referring to the conventional idea of the Star of Bethlehem. Do you understand this?

Questioner:  I believe so.

The Council:  Very well.  It should suffice to say that it was a guiding force for the Magi.  Man should look upon this also as a guiding light by which he may obtain the Christ Consciousness.  As the Star of Bethlehem guided the wise men to the child Jesus, the Divine Son of God, so should the light guide the wise men of today to Jesus Christ, the Only-Begotten Son of God, both Divine and Man.  It is not important exactly what the Star was, whether it was a light placed in the heavens by God or whether He collected    the constellations in such a manner so they appeared to be what they were not, exactly.  This we feel answers your question.  It is an answer that a wise man will look upon and think about.
