All Scripture quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, unless otherwise noted, is from the ACP/King James Version. The words in red are those of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those of God the Father and God the Holy Ghost and the words in this sickly EPA greenish color are of satan.

1 Now 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, 2 Saying, "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."
3 When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. 4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born. 5 And they said unto him, "In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet, 6 'AND 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(Micah 5:2)
7 Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared. 8 And 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." 9 When 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.
10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. 11 And when they were 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 unto Him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.
12 And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way. Matthew 2:1-12 ACP/KJV
So, about a twelve to eighteen months after the birth of the Lord, wise men came, how many of these men who were learned, wealthy, wise, and well positioned came is unknown. But what is known is that they presented to the Lord gifts, Gold the gift for kings, Incense the gift for the High Priest, and Myrrh the ointment used for the burial of kings. How much of each gift is also unknown, but there had to be enough so that the Lord's family was quite well off. We also know that they came from the west of Israel, as well as from the east of Israel, for they said "behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, ... we have seen His star in the east, and are come to worship Him."
As for the star, that is a miracle that astronomers are still unable to explain, but Scripture does: I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, Numbers 24:17
As you will see as we follow the life of the Lord, it becomes very obvious that Jesus, while being born in humble surroundings, was not raised in poverty as some suspect and claim. Tomorrow we will start to see the first proof of this.
The Lord Jesus be with you and may we all understand the importance of the Lord's live on earth.

The difference between a true preacher and a false preacher comes down to this. The true preacher uses God's word to convict of sin, the false preacher twist God's word to justify sin. The Lord our God, Christ Jesus be with you always, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with you all and please keep your pastor and me in your prayers. Amen. My prayer daily is "Lord please bless those tenfold who bless me."
Pray for me, pray for all those who open their mouths or take pen in hand in an effort to sway public opinion.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
