Only Three Wise Men?

.

.

.

.

.

“…behold, there came wise men

from the east to Jerusalem,

Saying, Where is He that is born King of the Jews?

for we have seen His star in the east,

and are come to worship Him.”

Matthew 2:1, 2

Only “three” wise men?

.

Somehow, we have got the notion, that there were only three wise men from the east, who followed that star to find Jesus.

.

And this is because they brought three gifts, gold, frankincense, and myrrh, that we have come to assume that “three” is the correct number.

.

But those who are studied in historical and cultural history, say that there were perhaps hundreds of these magi, which journeyed to the Holy Land, to find the long-awaited Messiah.

MANY WISE MEN!

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpgYou see, it is our belief that these wise men were merely a picture of all who have embarked on the upward, heavenly sojourn.

.

Yes, it is our contention that every human who has dropped his (or her) self-seeking for the things of this world, and has begun the search to find the long-awaited Messiah is to be numbered among those wise men of old!

MANY STILL CLING TO EARTH

.

Listen… “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hides, and for joy thereof goeth and sells all that he hath, and buys that field.” Matthew 13:44.

.

But the implications of this above verse is, that there are many who have been deceived into the notion that Christianity is merely some sort of complimentary addition to their life of worldly pursuits.

.

And so, they make their chief desire, the pursuit of the cares and pleasures and pastimes of this present world, but go to church on the weekend, only to return once again to a week-long pursuit of earthly Mammon.

100% DEVOTION REQUIRED!

.

But all such will ultimately find themselves bankrupt of Heaven’s riches, when standing before the Judgment Throne on the Last Day.

Listen… “Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” Matthew 7:14. Yes, there are very few who are truly willing to walk that narrow way.

.

Only the one who, “sells all that he has”, will truly find the long-awaited Messiah.

.

Listen to this next verse… “And ye shall seek Me, and find Me, when ye shall search for Me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13. Yes, as this verse so clearly reveals, it is only the one who verily pursues Jesus with a 100% devotion, who will truly find Him!

TODAY’S PRAYER…

.

“Dear Lord, Thank you for opening my eyes to see that Heaven is not just some part-time pursuit! Let me pursue Heaven as if it were by works, though it be a gift! Let me not be deceived by all those voices crying “peace and safety”! Let me not be lulled to sleep, by those wolves in sheep’s clothing who cry “peace, peace, when there is no peace”! Let me not be found among the number who “are at ease in Zion”.

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

BUT WHO IS ARCTURUS GUIDING?

.

Just who is Arcturus guiding? After all, Scripture says… “can you guide Arcturus with his sons”. Well, obviously, the short answer is…he’s guiding his sons!

.

But why are these constellations to be considered the sons of Arcturus? These Summer Constellations represent the Gospel as presented in Revelation Chapter 12. Signs In Heaven shows the reader just how all these stars and constellations present the Gospel Story in these heavenly pictures. And the more one studies this website, the greater will be the understanding of just how these constellations fulfill the Bible prophecy, which says… “can you guide Arcturus with his sons”.
