The Wisemen
« on: November 04, 2018, 08:07:03 pm »
Here is the scripture story of the wisemen.................

Matthew 2:1 "After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, 'Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him." When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him. When he had called together all the people's chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Christ was to be born. "In Bethlehem in Judea," they replied, "for this is what the prophet has written: `But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of my people Israel.' " Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared. He sent them to Bethlehem and said, "Go and make a careful search for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him." After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh. And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.
 
 
The Star they followed was in the East.......it must have been very large to have directed them to the home where Jesus lived as a child and not the manger like I always thought. Wouldn't it be nice if God could just put a star in the sky to direct us today.
 

Do you remember as a child seeing the creche or manager with three wise men and their camels? I always just thought that the star was over the manger and that the wisemen came to the manger also. He was a child when the wisemen came to see Him. If you look at the scriptures it says "child". Remember King Herod after the wisemen visited had all the baby boys two years of age and younger in Bethlehem killed. Now when you look at different mangers you will always check to see if the wisemen are there.
