The offices of Jesus

Matthew 2:11 And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

The magi came to the end of their long travel from the East, fell down and worshipped the Christ child. What a sight to behold. They bought gifts with much significance. Gold acknowledged Jesus as King. Frankincense acknowledged Him as Priest. And the myrrh, acknowledged Jesus as the martyred Prophet. How did these magi know? They didnt have to. God works out the fine details. He masterfully orchestrates His will upon the earth. What great faith these gentile magi, from babylon area, had as they studied the scriptures that Daniel had passed on many hundreds of years previous. So, many generations later. I would love to hear their story of how they were set on this mission. They left all to seek out Christ. Wise men still follow Christ
