DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that the 3 wise men were NOT at YaHuWShuWA's birth?
False Nativity Scene with The 3 Wise Men Included to Draw Up Emotion For More Merchandise Sales
King Herod wanted to know the exact time the star had appeared, so he could pinpoint the exact moment of the saviors birth. Herod later proceeded to have all baby boys killed who were two years old and under (MaTaThiYaHuW 2:16 "Matthew"). This would indicate that YaHuWShuWA had been born up to two years previously. So the 3 wise men did NOT arrive at the same time as the shepherds, who arrived the same day as the birth (Luke 2:11). Indeed, YaHuWShuWA’s family was no longer in that lodging place; they were living in a house at that time the wise men did show up. (MaTaThiYaHuW 2:11 "Matthew").
With ALL the overwhelming amounts of historical and biblical evidence proving that CHRISTMAS is a 100% pagan holiday, its NO surprise that the world has put so much emphasis on drawing up emotion of the masses to get more sales. The wicked holiday has nothing at all to do with the REAL savior who WAS born, but NOT on Dec 25th like many other pagan ALaHiYMs. Once again the importance of 2 Timothy 2:15 must be reiterated! Churches will NEVER teach or show you in scripture that YaHuWaH in fact HATES pagan holidays!
The Greek word for the wise men is μαγοι, (magi). It is from this word that we get our word magician. At that time, the boundary between those who attempted to perform occult experiments and those who performed legitimate science would have been blurred. For example, early chemists were alchemists, trying to change one substance into another (usually gold) by all sorts of methods, including incantations, but also including methods that we would recognize today as experimental chemistry. Similarly, these magicians could probably be referred to as scientists in a broader sort of way.
As they came from the East, they could have been associated with the magicians mentioned in Daniel. In Daniel 2, King Nebuchadnezzar is speaking to people who are referred to as magicians, astrologers and wise men. These could very well be the same group of people. There is some additional evidence for this below. Before continuing our investigation into who the wise men were, we should briefly comment on how many there were. In fact, we do not know how many there were. The word magi is plural, so there must have been at least two. However, there could have been many more. The legend that there were three, and that we know their names, is just a legend. The idea of three wise men may have developed, because there were three types of gifts presented by the wise men to YaHuWShuWA (MaTaThiYaHuW 2:11 "Matthew").
In Daniel 2, the wise men were unable to tell King Nebuchadnezzar his dream, before attempting to interpret it. The king therefore threatened to have them all put to death (Daniel 2:12). Indeed, it would appear that the order to kill the wise men had already begun (Daniel 2:13), when Daniel heard of it. Daniel and his companions were already counted among the wise men, because they had been trained as such and interviewed for inclusion in the ranks of the wise men (Daniel 1:18-20).
Daniel’s inclusion among the wise men shows that the wise men were not necessarily occultists, as Daniel and his companions accepted their inclusion, even though they had refused to eat the meat sacrificed to idols in Daniel 1. When Daniel told the king his dream and its interpretation, he made clear that he was not able to do this because of his own wisdom, and that the wise men had been correct in stating that no man could do what the king had asked. Instead, Daniel gave glory to YaHuWaH, stating that he could only do this amazing thing, because YaHuWaH had revealed the dream and interpretation to him. At the end of Daniel 2, we read that Daniel was to be chief administrator over the wise men, who, presumably, were to be spared
Unlearn and Re-think EVERYTHING you were taught!
NOW that you know the truth, when it comes to celebrating the holidays, ask yourself these questions: 1) "Who is getting the glory when I celebrate this holiday, you or YaHuWaH? and 2) If the creator was right next to you, would he be pleased if you took part in this knowing its origins? (Colossians 3:17-23 and 1 Corinthians 10:31)
30 And the times of this ignorance YHWH winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent
If you DON'T believe us regrading these facts, GOOD! Go do your own research, ASK YOUR PASTOR and find out for yourself, but NOW you cant say "you didn't know!"
2 KaFa 2:21 "Peter"
21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
ABaRiY 10:26 "Hebrews"
26 For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins
