The Magi’s Secret

The Magi’s Secret…

Jesus is the reason for the season…

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 when it rose and have come to worship him.” Matthew 2: 1-2

Matthew 2 speaks of “wise men” from the east. But how could they know that the King of Israel would come at the time he did just by seeing “His star”?

The answer is in the Book of Daniel. Daniel was made Chief of the wise men, magi; placed over them as the wisest man in the court of Babylon, Persia, from which these magi came. Daniel was the godly Hebrew prophet given the prophetic mathematical countdown to Messiah; 70 x 7 = 490 years.

Undoubtedly the Magi studied Daniels writings. Some of them would one day seek the Lord and travel to Judea and Bethlehem and be known as the Wise Men who found the Messiah. If these Magi came from Persia — surrounded by occultism — could one day find the Light because they searched for Him, then don’t you give up on those in your life who seem so far from God.

Keep giving the Word, being an example, and showing them the love of the Lord. For if the Magi of Persia could end up in Bethlehem, so can your loved ones.


The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14

Be an example of the Lord’s love by sharing the living Word to those in darkness.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
