Gift's of the Wise Men

While we all know what the gift's were that were presented by the three wise men when Jesus was born.

Rick H. writes about them in depth.  A very interesting and informing article.

I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Myrrh Tree

Frankincense:  The Boswellia tree

“Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea 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.

“When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh” Matthew 2: 1-2, 9-11, KJV.

Merry Christmas

I wish everyone a blessed Merry Christmas.

May we remember why we are able to celebrate this time of year.  That God loved his creation so much that he sent his Son to die for our sins.  And he did this willingly.

For with the Spirit of Christ in us the evil in this world can not flourish.  It cowers from His light in us.

I fear no evil for I have Him in me!.

John Ch 3

13And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
 14And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
 15That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
 16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
 17For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
 18He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
 19And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
 20For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
 21But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
