For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given. And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
At this Holy season and through the year, May God Quiet you with His Presence, And Bless you with His Love.
GIfts of the Magi
A year or more after Jesus' birth, three kings arrived to worship Him. Their lavish gifts symbolize Christ's identity and mission; gold for a king, incense for God, and myrrh to anoint the dead.
The mysterious Magi, or three kings, are mentioned only in the Gospel of Matthew. Few details are given, and our ideas about them mostly come from tradition and speculation. Scripture doesn't say how many wise men there were; it is generally assumed three, since they brought three gifts. God honored the wise men by warning them in a dream to go home by another route and not to report back to King Herod.
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." Matthew 2:1-2
We Three Kings (1857)
We three kings of orient are
Bearing gifts we traverse afar
Field and fountain
Moor and mountain,
Following yonder star.
O star of wonder, star of night,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.
Born a King on Bethlehem's plain,
Gold I bring to crown Him again,
King for ever, ceasing never
Over us all to reign.
Frankincense to offer have I.
Incense owns a Deity nigh.
Prayer and praising, all men raising,
Worship Him, God most high.
Myrrh is mine: Its bitter perfume
Breathes a life of gathering gloom.
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying,
Sealed in the stone cold tomb.
Glorious now behold Him arise,
King and God and Sacrifice.
Sounds through the earth and skies.
