The Wise Men

December 23, 2017

The account of the wise men who came to worship Jesus is found in Matthew 2:1-12. Tradition says they were three kings who came from the east but the country they came from is not mentioned. They were thought to be 3 because of the number of gifts and kings because of the value of the gold, frankincense and myrrh.

They followed a star which appeared in the heavens until they came to Jerusalem and inquired of Herod where the King was born. Herod wanted to know more about this baby and asked the wise men to bring news of His whereabouts when they found Him. They continued to follow the star, presented their gifts and worshiped Jesus.

Jesus was not in the manger at the time the wise men found him, as is often pictured in Christmas cards and manger scenes, but was now a young child as the Bible states. Probably about 2 years old or a little younger and was in a house with Mary his mother. Then being warned in a dream the wise men went a different way back to their country and did not report to Herod.

There is a saying,”Wise men still seek Him”. Are you seeking Jesus? What He wants is our desire to follow Him as the wise men followed the star and to worship Him and give the gift of ourselves to Him. Are you wise?

Matthew 2:1-2 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea 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

Those in Authority

November 14, 2017

Praise the Lord for the freedom of speech that we have in the United States of America. However, the mainstream media have taken politician bashing beyond a level that is good for our country. That includes local, state and national politicians no matter what party they belong too. As Christians, we should be praying for our political leaders rather than complaining and repeating rhetoric that may or may not be true. Today, join with us to pray for your local leaders, Governor, President and Vice President that they may have wisdom to govern with biblical principles and more importantly that they may be saved if they are not.

I Timothy 2:1-2 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

Tom Curtis is a wise man for he is always looking for people to win to Christ. He has had 3 surgeries since October but as usual his goal is to witness especially in the hospital. Last evening he had the joy of leading Alden to Jesus. Please keep Tom in your prayers for complete healing of his left leg.

How are we doing?

January 23, 2015

Looking through past posts, the following blog was found, posted over a year ago. How are we as a nation doing? Things have not gotten better, only worse. Unrest all around, not only in the USA but world wide. Wars and rumors of wars as the Bible predicted.
“The USA is in trouble today because the leaders are looking for wisdom in the wrong places.
They have no understanding of what wisdom is, they seek answers from man instead of turning to God. We have banned God from our schools, taken the 10 Commandments off our buildings and forbidden prayer at public events. Will we wake up in time or continue down this path of destruction?”

Proverbs 9:10
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom:
and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

Christian Music

January 3, 2015

Music is very important to the Christian believer. Today Christian music takes on many forms. Hymns, traditional, contemporary, rock, pop, country and several others.
Much of it has taken on the beat of the secular world. This is where the Christian needs to be wise in what kind of music they hear.
God loves to be worshiped in song. David, a man after God’s heart was a song writer, singer and played an instrument. Music was the only thing that calmed King Saul when he was agitated.
Does the music honor God? Is it praise to Him or just something that makes the listener feel good. Is it music that would tempt the listener into going back into their old lifestyle or is it something that lifts the soul and the spirit?
Like everything in the Christian life we make choices. Pray about the kind of music you regularly listen to.

Colossians 3:16
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
