(KJV.) ST. MATTHEW 2:1-3
(1) 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.
(2) 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.
(3) When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
Therefore, Jesus Christ was born a deity, the wise men, seers, astrologers, stargazers, saw his destiny shined through the skies, wondered who the child is, searched the land to worship and bring him valuable gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh, cf. Matthew 2:11; however, when Herod the king heard their testimonies of what was revealed to them, he was troubled; the question is, why was he troubled? Herod the king was troubled because of the spirit of jealousy, first of all, Jesus was a young child in physicalities, secondly, think of how many years will take for Jesus to be enthrone as a king over a nation; therefore, why on earth would anyone be upset about a young king? regardless, if the spirit of jealousy comes upon anyone, there is no telling what devices they will use to quench other people destinies; in the case of Jesus Christ, King Herod was troubled and all Jerusalem with him, he sought counseled from his cabinet members, after that he called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared, sent them to Bethlehem, to go and search diligently for the young child, and when they found him, to report back to him, that he might worship him as well, but the King lied to the wise men, for evil was in his heart to terminate the life of Jesus Christ; therefore, when the wise men did not return to report their findings to King Herod per the word of our Father, he became very angry, ordered that all the children that are in Bethlehem, its proximities, from two years old and under, up until the time when the wise men came to sought for Jesus, should be slaughtered, in other to make sure that the life of Jesus was terminated; this is an evil device to counteract the works of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; today, let us rest assured that, if we serve Jesus Christ as we serve others, no weapon formed against us shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise up in judgment against us shall be condemned. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD. cf Isaiah 54:17; therefore, let us serve Jesus Christ with faith in his righteousness, and joyfulness of hearts, cast away the fear of enemies, for his blood is sufficient to lead us into our various destinies.
Fruit of thoughts, as humans, each and every soul born to earth, has a designed purpose of our Father, planted deeply within their spirits; some people may realise their purposes earlier in life, others, may not until later on, while others miss their destinies of life; today, if we have not fully known the intended purposes of our Father for our lives, it is time to search our hearts with the spirits of our Father to perceive who we really are in the spirits, cf. I Corinthians 2:11-12; pray our destinies into physical manifestations, that the glory of Jesus Christ may be revealed through our services to one another. From my desk to yours; Have a Merry Christmas Everyone! God bless you all in Jesus Name! Amen and Amen!
