Master of the Magi

30 May

Master of the Magi…

The Magi were from Persia, considered wise men, priests, astrologers. Astrology is condemned in Scripture. God could use anything to speak to them, but why could they connect a star to a Jewish child born as Savior?

When Nebuchadnezzar began taking Jewish people captive to Babylon, among the first captives was Daniel. Daniel correctly interpreted the king’s dream and was made chief over all the wise men. When Persia took over Babylon, Daniel retained that position.

The wise men of Persia were the MAGI, and Daniel was the Hebrew prophet given the exact timetable to the coming of Jesus. He wrote this prophecy down in Babylon, Persia.

While master of the magi, it’s not unlikely that the magi would be aware of this and be waiting for the prophecy to come true.

The Magi were pagans, yet because they searched for Him they found Him. We could learn a lot from them. God wants you to seek Him.

He promises if you do, you will find Him. For those who seek and keep seeking shall find. Their footsteps shall be led to the exact and perfect place.

But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul. Deuteronomy 4:29

Today, seek first the Lord and spend time in His presence, let Him lead you to His perfect plan for you.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
