Do We Care To Know?

When God sent His Son into the world at the first Christmas, there came wise men from the East who came many miles to worship this new born King of the Jews!  They came to Jerusalem seeking the birthplace of the Messiah, and the religious leaders knew exactly the place was where Christ was to be born!  They took these wise men right to Micah 5:2 and quoted to them the well known verse we so often hear at Christmas. "But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall He come forth unto Me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting."

There is a very interesting and confusing thing about all this however. Not a single one of those religious leaders who knew the Scriptures about the birthplace of the Messiah, as far as we know, moved even a finger to travel the few miles to Bethlehem to see the Messiah themselves!  It seems that the appearance of these wise men and their great desire to know about the Christ (which by the way is the Greek rendering of the Hebrew Messiah) would at least have prompted the religious leaders to check it out for themselves!  Their fear of Herod and his iron-fisted rule over Jerusalem may have been a partial reason for their lack of interest, but whatever their excuse, evidently they did not care to know what God was about to do in the world!

 Today, God is still working in our world! We do not have any promises as to the time that the victorious Lord Jesus will return to this world, but we do know that He will!  In fact, the Lord told us emphatically that no one would know the exact time and therefore we must always be ready (Mk.13:32). However, we can look at God’s working in the past and the many teachings in His word and gain a great knowledge of what He is up to in our world so that we can better live for and serve Him right now (2 Pet.3:13)!  The BBN BI is excited about a course we have the privilege to offer our students, entitled What on Earth is God Doing, which is taught by Dr. Renald Showers (course number 50100).  For those that care to know what the Bible teaches about this crucial subject, this course would be a wonderful way to study it out. May the Lord bless you as you study His Word!
