We Have Seen His Glory: Seek Him, Part 4
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
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.
Matthew 2:1 KJV
The wise men came from the east. It was probably Daniel who first brought the truth of the Scriptures to the rulers and priests of this part of the world. The wise men were not called that because they had great wisdom. Their name meant “magi”, mystical seekers and searchers. They really didn’t have the answers to man’s spiritual needs, but they did want to find the answers.
The greatest revelation that
came to the wise men was the discovery that the answers they sought were not to
be found in pagan practices, but in a person. They left behind the
darkness of the Medes and Persians as they followed the light of His star; they
left behind the rituals and reasonings of man as they sought the true Wisdom of
God; they left behind the practices of magic and sorcery as they looked for the
One true Master; they left behind the vanity and idolatry of corrupt rulers as
they journeyed to worship the new born King.
