Wig’s Word of God Today 1-6-2012

The Epiphany of Christ to every human being regardless of race or desire.

Magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, “Where is the newborn King of the Jews? We saw His Star at its rising and have come to do Him homage.” Matthew 2:1c-2

Isaiah 60:1-6, Psalm 72, Ephesians 3:2-3, 5-6 & Matthew 2:1-12

We celebrate the beauty of Christ’s birth today in what tradition calls the “Epiphany”  described in our reading today as the arrival of the Magi “from the east” “to do Him homage.”  Today also represents the last day of the Twelve Days of Christmas we’ve been praying for these last two weeks instilling in our hearts the beauty of God coming to be with His people. What many of you may not know is the “Magi” are not counted in the Bible as totaling three even though many cultures celebrate wonderful traditions represented by the “Three Kings” or “Three Wise Men” deepening the mystery we embrace to live in His Salvation. Today we can have our own Epiphany each and every day by loving His Word guided practice to instill prayer unafraid to preach in silence or aloud the Gospel His love fashioned as the manifestation of Christ to every human being regardless of race or desire.

We can celebrate one revelation after another by soaking the Truth into our souls cleansing our hearts of unwanted memories, moments and motivations that keep us totally from Christ’s unending love. People will have their own Epiphany’s from your love of Christ too celebrating with you a resounding breath of fresh air we all take to establish and maintain God’s Courage of His Son Jesus Christ. I just had another Epiphany, did you? Yesterday I finished presenting the Book of genesis in poetry I worked on for about 50 days or more. I’ll be moving into Exodus now continuing my Spirit-led rhymes of God’s love hoping I can bring a smile of God’s love to your heart and a desire to give ourselves completely to His Will. I believe in my heart this is a moment-by-moment Epiphany if you submit yourself to practice, prayer and preaching. Amen.

We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray day 12 of our 12 Days of Christmas giving thanks the Maji went home a different route. Praying for Greg Bishop’s tumor to shrink in his liver. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Carolina prayers for March. Prayers of thanksgiving for Tommy Leong. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

Yours in Christ,

Thomas Cruz†Wiggins

†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

Romans 8:28

 

The Magi- Rough or Royal? Matthew 2:1-12

 

They came from the east

No mention of the least

Only telling the vision complete

To King Herod the baby killer feat

 

Described as Magi of unknown seats

Royal or rough who’d know to speak?

Herod asked for the location to keep

His reign in favor of his child death retreat

 

On their way they followed the star to repeat

A Morning Star’s Epiphany from afar to greet

It was still in place upon leaving Herod’s bleak

They found Him in a house paying homage at His feet

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
