Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the King, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem,Saying,
“where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him”. Matthew 2:1-2
The Savior was born in Bethlehem, He is my Lord and savior, and what a blessing it is, because God favored me, and He favored you also.
Herod the King inquiries about Christ was all for the wrong reason. He pretended that he want to worship Jesus. But he didn’t care about offering well wishes to the Christ baby, because the ways of his heart was evil, and he wanted to harm the child Jesus. But ALL things work together for good, when Almighty God is in the situation. God had a plan of salvation for mankind, and nothing on earth or under were going to stop it.
God chose Bethlehem where Jesus would be born, we read, “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me
The One to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from of old, From everlasting”. Micah 5:2. This scripture says the “God Head” voice had proclaimed it a long time ago before the foundation of the world was created that Jesus Christ, King Messiah, would be born in Bethlehem bringing salvation to the world until from old to forever.
Jesus Christ, the Messiah came from God to rule the world. Whether you believe it or not it is true. “God does rule the world”. No man can tell Him how to rule and No man can judge Him how he rule it. “God Is Judge Over It All”.
And Jesus Christ, the Messiah was born. There was a man sent from God, Crying in the wilderness, clean up your life, repent of your wicked and vile sins.
John the Baptist came crying out to the people, make straight your hearts, make room for the Messiah, he is coming to save you of your sins, you need to get ready. The prophet were whole heartily crying out to the world repent of your sins, and turn from your wicked ways to get ready to receive the Savior.
“In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, and saying “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!” Matthew 3:1-2voic
“The voice of one crying in the wilderness: prepare the way of the Lord; make his path straight” Matthew 3:3
The voice of the Lord is still crying out make the path straight for His righteousness. I catch hold to the prophet voice and say repent of your sins, receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior today in your heart because today is the day for salvation. Make your heart a path for God’s Kingdom service. A path of service to “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations baptizing them in name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, “teaching them to observe all things, that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age”. Amen. Matthew 28:19-20
