VISIT OF THE MAGI ๐Ÿงก ANGELA & BRIAN ๐Ÿ’™ AN ACROSTIC 5 2 3 4 SONNET



 

WHERE THE GIFTS ~ OF THE MAGI ~ APPROPRIATE FOR A YOUNG CHILD ?

 

V ISIT OF THE MAGI ~ from the EAST ~ to BETHLEHEM

I S an important incident in the Biblical narrative of the INCARNATION

S HEPHERDS who visited JESUS were Ordinary Folk ~ like YOU & I

I N the MAGI ~ we have visitors of Influence & Importance

T HIS demonstrated that the INCARNATION was significant to ALL !

 

O NE of the Gifts was GOLD ~ because JESUS is the promised MESSIAH

F ROM King David ~ in His Genealogy ~ JESUS King of Kings & Lord of Lords !

 

T HE second Gift was FRANKINCENSE ~ A perfume used by PRIESTS

H E is DIVINE ~ The SON of GOD ~ The Second Person of the TRINITY

E VENTUALLY (AD 33) He died to REDEEM US ~ Third GIFT was MYRRH ~ SUFFERING !

 

M AGI are depicted on our CHRISTMAS CARDS & sung about in our CAROLS

A ND this gives them Reality & Substance in 2020 ! The BIBLE teaches they never

G OT to the Stable ~ but came to BETHLEHEM when JESUS was a Young Child

I N the House of Mary & Joseph. JESUS was about TWO years old ~ AMEN !

 

Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love ANGELA & BRIAN ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก

 

The STAR guided the MAGI to BETHLEHEM and stopped over the place where

the YOUNG CHILD was. They entered into the House and saw JESUS with MARY

His Mother. they bowed down & worshipped Him and opened their GIFTS and

presented to HIM GOLD - FRANKINCENSE & MYRRH ~ MATTHEW 2 vs 9 - 11

      GOOD MORNING FAY ~ Pleased you enjoyed it ! Even though the VISIT took place oner 2000 years ago it is still very relevant today. The visit of the MAGI and the Spiritual significance of the gifts they brought is still as important as it was then ! Wise Men still seek for JESUS ~ AMEN !

        GOOD MORNING UNCLE STEVE ~ Thanks for your Q ! If you check the picture you will se the are all on CAMELS The reasons for this are:

        1. There is a lot of sand to traverse and PONIES sink in sand
        ~ Camels dont !
        2. Ponies need a lot of water ~ Camels carry theirs in their HUMP
        3. You can carry a lot more on a Camel
        4. Ponies dont like Sand in their Eyes
        5. Its a lot more dignified for a MAGI to arrive in a Camel than a Pony

        Blessings & Joy to You & Your Desert Doggie
        Love in the SPIRIT Angela & Brian ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก

        They were Magi, but I prefer 'wise men'. 'Magi' seems too close to 'magic'.
