The magi came because they saw the Bright Morning Star rise (Rev 11:16) marking the Lion of Judah receiving the scepter of world rule between His feet (Gen 49:9-10; Num 24:9, 17). The star rose again to mark the lamb slain and led them during the day to arrive on Passover at sundown. The Star was Biblical and Catholic. There were at least nine separate signs in the heavens with the sun, moon, and stars linked to Jesus’ life. The heavens bowed before His presence. Jesus was born on the solstice, Dec 25 1 BC. That star rose again Dec 12, 1531 the solstice for Our Lady of Guadalupe. The heavens declare the glory of God (Psalm 19:1). see VenusStarofBethlehem.pdf
