The “Wise Men” Were Astrologers On A Mission.
Let Us Dig A little Deeper into Their Name,Their Mode Of Learning About The Birth Of Jesus,Who They Were Working For & The Reason For Their Visit.
The Bible Called These Men “Wise” Men,This Name Gives the Impression That These Men Had A Higher, Un-Common Power / Knowledge Most people Do Not Have.
Luke 2 vs 1 & 2 says “Now When Jesus Was Born In Bethlehem of Judea in the Days Of Herod The King,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”.
“FOR WE HAVE SEEN HIS STAR IN THE EAST. . .”
To Regular People,Stars Are Just Heavenly Bodies,But to The Wise Men With Demonic Power AKA Astrology, Stars Were A Sort of Mirror,They Could Identify Who Owns The Star And Already Knew What He Would Grow Up To Become.
If The Star Of Our Lord Jesus Christ,The Son Of God Could Be Seen And Read By “wise men”,Does This Mean The Star(s) Of Mere Mortals Can Also Be Seen By “Wise men”,And Could Also Be Tampered With?. YES.
Verse 7 & 8: “Then Herod When He Had Privily Called The Wise Men,Enquired Of Them Diligently What Time The Star Appeared,Then He Sent Them And Said Go And Search Diligently For The Young Child. . . .”.
The Wise Men Obeyed King Herod,Followed The Star ,Finally Located Jesus And Brought Him Gifts,Thankfully Mary Who Was Filled With The Holy Spirit Saw Past The Deception,Nice Gifts And Did not Return To Herod.It is Very Important To Note That If Mary Had Followed The Wise Men,Herod Would Have Killed Jesus & Cut Short His Destiny Which Was To Die To Save Our Souls.
BEWARE OF MONITORING SPIRITS AND THEIR FRIENDLY MANIPULATION;
In This Modern Day ,It Is Safe To Say The Wise Men Represent Unfriendly Friends & Family,They Try To Lure You To Herod( Herod Represents Satan,Sin,Death).They Might Come Bearing Gifts To Attract You,They Might Make You Feel Good About Yourself Like The Wise Men Fell & Worshipped Baby Jesus. Whatever Their Tactic is These People Are Dangerous,Because They Can See You In A Way You And Other People Cant See. The Bible Also Mentioned That Shepherds Visited Baby Jesus But The Difference is These Shepherds Were Told About The Birth Of Jesus By An Angel,They Did Not Have Evil Access To People’s Star.
The Only Way To Not Fall Into The Trap Of Monitoring Spirits/”Wise Men Is To Have A DISCERNING SPIRIT. If Mary Did Not Have A Discerning Spirit She Would Have Taken Jesus To Herod And He Would Have Killed Them All.
A Discerning Spirit Comes From;
1)Having A Healthy Prayer Life: Luke18 vs 1; “And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint”.Not Fainting Means No Matter How Bad Things Are Our Prayers Lives Must Not Suffer.
2)Reading And Immersing One’s Self In The Word Of God Thoroughly; Matthew 4:4 Tells us : “But he answered, “It is written, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth”. As We consume Food To Grow Physically,We Must Also Consume The Word Of God For Spiritual Growth.
3)Avoiding Sin Completely : Unfortunately Unlike A Business & Most Humain Affairs You Can Never Manage Sin.Watching 1 Minute of Pornography Is No Different from Watching It For 10 Hours,There Is No Big Or Small Sin.The Bible Ask’ Us To Flee From All APPEARANCE Of Evil.This Means Dont Even Wait To Confirm If It Is Evil Or Not,If The Little You Have Seen Looks Evil,Run Far Away.
May God Give Us The Grace To Always Walk in His Path.Amen.
