After many years of dedicated unbiased research, the purpose of this information is to be a starting point or stepping stone for everyone beginning their journey down the path of truth. We DON’T claim to know everything but as we make time for YaHuWaH, we grow and will be guided by the RuWaCh of truth “YaHuWShuWA”. Always do your own research and validate everything EVERYONE says.

The Nativity Scene
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. This wicked holiday has nothing at all to do with the REAL savior YaHuWShuWA 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 μάγος (magi) and from this word comes the English word magician. Back in the ancient times 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 the magi or wise men came from the East, they could have been associated with the magicians mentioned in Daniel (DaNiYAL H1840 "ALaHiYM is my judge"). In DaNiYAL 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 from the Easter region. 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 DaNiYAL 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 (DaNiYAL 2:12 “Daniel”). Indeed, it would appear that the order to kill the wise men had already begun (DaNiYAL 2:13 “Daniel”), when DaNiYAL heard of it. DaNiYAL 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 (DaNiYAL 1:17-20 “Daniel”).
DaNiYAL’s inclusion among the wise men shows that the wise men were not necessarily occultists, as DaNiYAL and his companions accepted their inclusion, even though they had refused to eat the meat sacrificed to idols in DaNiYAL 1:7-8 (Daniel). When DaNiYAL 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, DaNiYAL 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 DaNiYAL 2, we read that DaNiYAL was to be chief administrator over the wise men, who, presumably, were to be spared
Magi, singular Magus, also called Wise Men, in Christian tradition, the noble pilgrims “from the East” who followed a miraculous guiding star to Bethlehem, where they paid homage to the infant YaHuWShuWA as king of the ABaRiY (aka Jews / Hebrews) mentioned in MaTaThiYaHuW 2:1-12 “Matthew”. Christian theological tradition has always stressed that Gentiles as well as Jews came to worship YaHuWShuWA - an event celebrated in the Eastern church at Christmas and in the West at Epiphany (January 6). Eastern tradition sets the number of Magi at 12, but Western tradition sets their number at three, probably based on the three gifts of “gold, frankincense, and myrrh” (MaTaThiYaHuW 2:11) presented to the infant. Some other definition of magi denotes followers of Zoroastrianism or Zoroaster. The earliest known use of the word Magi is in the trilingual inscription written by Darius the Great, known as the Behistun Inscription. Old Persian texts, pre-dating the Hellenistic period, refer to a Magus as a Zurvanic, and presumably Zoroastrian, priest.
The phrase "from the east" (ἀπὸ ἀνατολῶν G395 "from the rising of the sun"), is the only information MaTaThiYaHuW provides about the region from which the magi came. The Parthian Empire, centered in Persia, occupied virtually all of the land east of YaHuWDaH (Juda) and Syria (except for the deserts of Arabia to the southeast). Though Parthian empire was tolerant of other religions, its dominant religion was Zoroastrianism, with its “magos or magi” class priests. Although MaTaThiYaHuW's account does not explicitly cite the motivation for the magi’s journey (other than seeing the star in the east, which they took to be the star of the King of the ABaRiY), the in book “Syriac Infancy Gospel”, it provides some clarity by stating explicitly in the third chapter that the magi were pursuing a prophecy from their prophet, Zoradascht (Zoroaster).
2 Now when YaHuWShuWA was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
When you look up the word “wise men” in the Strong’s you get G3097 μάγος or Magos. The word magi is the plural of Latin magus, borrowed from Greek magos.
Notice the root word for Magos its an ABaRiY (Hebrew) word H7248 RaB-Mag
Making the time to look deeper educates us to the facts. The wise men from the east were pagan soothsayers, magicians and astrologers, and apparently in THEIR culture (and NOT the ABaRiY) it was a custom to bring gifts to a king for their born day. Once again the disciples ALL walked with YaHuWShuWA for 3 years before his death, and NOT once do we read them giving him gifts OR YaHuWShuWA asking for a gifts. We have to start unlearning man made traditions and get back to obeying YaHuWaH and following his word YaHuWShuWA made flesh.
Notice the word “Magic” or “Magician” is conneted to the word Magi

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)
AShaH 17:30 “Acts”
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 KaPha 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
