Wise Men From The East

An epiphany, revelation

On the day of visitation

His Name prospered in the East

A majestic Prince of Peace

Three Kings, Theophany

Magi, prophesier

Unfolding gifts at will

The star delivering them near

A young child with Mary

In her home with care

The wise men in extravagance

Oils, ointment made bear

Prostrate, outstretched

Adorning in posture

For The King was now flesh

For certain not an imposture

Likewise the fake

King Herod in his audacity

Directed the men post-visit

To activate His infanticide fantasy

But in a dream warned they

An angel of the Lord descended

Flee to your nether parts

Herod’s heart demented, tormented

Thus Mary and Joseph fled

The Israeli retreated before

To satisfy the biblical prophecy

A Nazarene, Bethlehemite no more

Holy God,

We pray to reveal Your Lordship to the nations. We pray to bear witness of the Truth as the wise men did as they returned to their provinces. Most Holy God, may our observation of the Christ Child in our hearts be a witness to save the masses in His Blood and Body. For in His infancy Jesus laid the foundations of salvation, the inception of redemption. In this Child was liberty. In Jesus’ name. Amen.


Published by Matthew Pope

A graduate of Belmont Abbey College, a Catholic, private institution, Matthew received his Bachelors of Arts degree in Theology in May of 2012. Upon registering for pastoral training in August of 2013, he was formerly a Master of Divinity student at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, pursuing the Evangelism program. With a transparent calling from God, his life dramatically changed as he received confirmation into The Catholic Church in November of 2016. Matthew's passion rests in serving the nations with the hope of The Gospel. Author of his lay-ministry, Even Unto The End Of The World, which was established on November 12, 2013, he has also produced his previous books: In Doctrine, Uncorrupt (which was released on February 15, 2014) and Assembled With One Accord (published on December 1, 2015), and is currently writing and planning for following books to come. With a revelatory vision, Matthew intends to encounter the culture and Christendom with truth. In addition, he intends to draw forth the rudiments of the Most Holy Catholic Faith to transform all Christian denominations into The One Church. Matthew confessed Jesus Christ as Savior at age seventeen, impressed with the desire to enter the ministry, in March of 2008. A native of Shelby, North Carolina, he was born on May 28, 1990. He now resides in Wake Forest, North Carolina where he has been actively writing since late 2013.
