The Revealed Truth (Matthew 2:1-12)Tommy Boring, December 21, 2014
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
When Jesus was born, there wasn't a bunch of people around. There was no kings, no wise men, no princes or princesses. Still to this day He's obscured to so many. The first that came to see Jesus was the shepherds, the least of people. Then during the next 30 years Jesus went without being known. Some knew Him but most did not. Now even today, most do not know Him. But the wisemen that came months later presented to Him gifts. The truth was revealed to them by God thru the stars. Only God could make a star. We also have received the truth from God through His Word, the bible. God shows everyone His truth at some point but some turn it away. The second thing that the wisemen did was to believe. Just as their journey began, yours will begin in faith. Eph 2:8 How many have heard the truth and rejected it? Many want to celebrate Christmas but will not celebrate Jesus' birth and death. Most live as if God is a butler, a human that is to be served only when needed. The wisemen also worshipped Jesus. Those that truly surrendered to Jesus, they will worship Him. How many of you have surrendered everything unto God? Most can talk it, but they haven't done. One MUST worship God in Spirit AND in Truth.

1Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, 2Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. 3When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. 4And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born. 5And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet, 6And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel. 7Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, inquired of them diligently what time the star appeared. 8And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also. 9When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. 10When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. 11And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. 12And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.
