The Cast: The Magi

A Different Approach

This post is a  continuation of the preceding post concerning the Birth of Christ.

3. The idea that the gods had offspring with human women is a recurring thought in ancient writings.  It is found in Greek mythology, in Babylonian and Egyptian writings as well as in the Bible.  When the sons of the gods had sexual intercourse with the daughters of men, the Bible tells us, their offspring were mighty men of renown. Gen.6:4.

A mighty man of renown is not what Jehovah wanted when Christ was born.  He must have a perfect human being.   I see it this way; Jehovah, an ET, had made a deal with Satan, the God of this world. 2 Cor. 4:4.  Simply stated, the deal said, either a perfect human must pay the ransom price for the mortal race or none of mankind will have a chance at eternal ecstasy.  Jesus Christ is both a perfect human and the Son of God and so He could fulfil all the requirements laid down by Satan.

The God of the Jews, Jehovah, at crucial times, in the history of his chosen people, guided the lineage of Mary, the mother of Christ.  It was found that she, through careful genealogical programming, had the right genes to become the mother of Christ, the Son of Jehovah.  

The Lord, having chosen the young woman from among the Jewish people, sent an angel, whose name was Gabriel. He was bearing the divine seed with him, and through artificial insemination, implanted the seed, and the young virgin was pregnant.  In this way, Christ was, in fact, the Son of Jehovah and the son of human lineage.

From reading the story of the conception and birth of Christ, in the Bible, it is easy to arrive at the aforementioned conclusion if we are willing to look beyond the Church's closed minded teachings.

The Magi are Guided

What if you knew what stars looked like but didn't know what an airplane was? What would you call the airplane lights? ... Now, if I were to tell you that last night I saw a set of flashing stars that moved across the sky, what would you say? Would you agree that they were stars, or would you tell me that I really saw an airplane?

... Remember, the wise men knew what stars were, but probably didn't know what UFOs were

At the time that Christ was born, as was normal, there were shepherds looking after their sheep, out in the fields.  At night, while they were watching their flocks, the light from a UFO shone all around them.  The shepherds were afraid of the spacecraft, so one of the Lord’s robots came closer to them and said, do not be afraid, this UFO has not come to hurt you. I bring you good news of great joy, which will come to all people. Luke 2:10

Here, suddenly, a new stage is set.  The focal point is no longer, The Lord of Israel.  The new theme is, peace on earth; great joy shall be to all people (nations), for Jesus, the Lord of Peace, is not a national god as were the gods of the UFOs.  He is the Son of Jehovah, and He will later pay the penalty required by Satan, the god of this world. 2 Cor. 4:4.

Jehovah wanted the whole world to become involved with His Son; The Messiah: 
  • The Romans were involved, for they had the military rule of Judea at that time. 
  • The Greeks, the intellectuals, were always looking for a new story to write or argue about, and they heard about the Messiah naturally, in the course of their activities. 
  • The Jews, being kin to the mother of Christ, were involved because of that. 
  • One class of people needed to be called to the scene; the mystics; the astrologers from the East.
The wise men of the East, as would be expected, responded to the new light in the sky; a light moving from the East to the West. They decided to follow the "star", and when they arrived at their destination, the light shone down on a stable in Bethlehem.

Some scholars believe that since Jupiter and Saturn were in conjunction at that time they appeared to be a bright star.  That light certainly cannot have been from normal "stars" or planets (even if they were in conjunction).  How can stars or planets in conjunction shine down on one particular spot in any one city? 

The same argument must be used against the idea that the light was from a meteor; a meteor does not shine down on only one small area.  The people who advance these hair-brained opinions surely cannot have thought very carefully about the ideas they present.

We may as well speculate that the light was produced by a spacecraft?  It meets all the necessary requirements.  In their past, the Jews had followed a beam of light through the Red Sea and in their wilderness wanderings!
In this case, a UFO could provide a light shining down to guide the Magi.   It had the ability to move at the right speed so that the wise men and their camels could keep up with it on their journey of approximately 750 miles.  Also, it could wait for them while they needed to stop and rest.   It could shine down on any small town because it was close enough to earth to "spotlight" it.  It could direct its beam to any chosen spot in that town: namely the stable in Bethlehem.

That this light, which the Magi followed, was produced by a UFO is the most likely theory that has yet been presented.  If only we would be willing to open our minds and look past od religious hang-ups.
