The Star of David~


The Star of David is a six-pointed star formed by two interlocking triangles, one pointing up, one pointing down. It is named after King David and appears on the flag of Israel. While predominately recognized as a symbol of Judaism and Israel, many Christians identify with the Star of David as well.
The five-pointed star is also a symbol of Christianity associated with the birth of the Savior, Jesus Christ. In Matthew 2 the Magi (or wise men) followed a star toward Jerusalem in search of the new born King. From there the star led them to Bethlehem, to the very location where Jesus was born. When they found the child with his mother, they bowed and worshiped him, presenting him with gifts.

In the Book of Revelation, Jesus is called the Morning Star (Revelation 2:28;
Revelation 22:16).

I found this to be very interesting. I Love the thought of Jesus being called the bright and morning star. I love bright lights and sunshine. Can you just imagine our Savior being our light forever in heaven one day. I get excited thinking about it!
I know we desperately need all this rain and I am truly grateful but I really don't like these cloudy days.Brighter days are coming! Are you ready? I hope so.Love & Prayers Lisa

Hi Lisa,
I love to think about Jesus being our light forever. We have certainly needed the rain, but I'm like you...after a couple of cloudy days, I'm ready for the sun to shine! :) This post made me think about Carissa's song, "When the Son Breaks Through the Clouds". :)

Thank God for The Morning Star. We just had snow in Mississippi yesterday, but today the sun is shining bright. What an awesome God we serve. He is the Master of the wind, rain, storms, and the sunshine.
