Wise Men Still Seek Him

Read: Matt. 2:1-12

Today’s Bible Verse: “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” (Matt 2:2 NIV).

Little is known about the Wise Men, the Magi, who came from the East to honor the new born King, or why they decided to make the long journey from the Persian world, nor why they connected the mysterious star with the promise of a new born king, but they did (see Num. 24:17).

Adding Insult to Injury

2 Chronicles 13:1-22
Read

Don’t you realize that the LORD, the God of Israel, made a lasting covenant with David, giving him and his descendants the throne of Israel forever? Yet Jeroboam son of Nebat, a mere servant of David’s son Solomon, rebelled against his master. Then a whole gang of scoundrels joined him, defying Solomon’s son Rehoboam when he was young and inexperienced and could not stand up to them.”

“Do you really think you can stand against the kingdom of the LORD that is led by the descendants of David? You may have a vast army, and you have those gold calves that Jeroboam made as your gods. But you have chased away the priests of the LORD (the descendants of Aaron) and the Levites, and you have appointed your own priests, just like the pagan nations. You let anyone become a priest these days! Whoever comes to be dedicated with a young bull and seven rams can become a priest of these so-called gods of yours!” (2 Chronicles 13:4-9)
