The Star of Jacob lit the skies;
Yes, Israel’s Scepter, it did rise;
It shone, as foretold,
A sign, to behold,
With good news, for all “seeing eyes“.
COMMENTARY: See Numbers 24:17 & Matthew chapter 2. The prophesied coming of God incarnate (“Emmanuel” = “God with us”), i.e., the Lord Jesus Christ — down to planet Earth, is how we define earth history. Whether people admit it or not, our calendars — which by necessary implication rely upon the “B.C.”/”A.D.” dichotomy of Earth history, are a providential history witness of Christ’s First Coming.
