Gold, Frankincense, Myrrh - Vol. 3

By Schilder, Klaas

Daily Meditations on the Bible for Reformation of Family, Church, and State

“For whoever has, to him more will be given.” For this reason the wise men came to honour the King with gold, frankincense, and myrrh. But that was only at the hour of promise. Promises are not expensive. Yet, how God tested them when they found the Child! There was no throne for Him. And there were no people either. Their star did not rest above a palace. Then in their hearts they thought of another truth, “Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away.” They would not have said it in these words, yet the question would have burned in their hearts, “Should we take the treasures back again? The King is not what we dreamt . . .” But God overcame them: they truly opened their treasure bags for Him and all was indeed for Him! The wise men understood that it is easy to imagine giving gifts to a Lord of our imagination, but it is difficult to give treasures to a King who makes no effort to be as we considered Him to be.

— from the meditation of January 1

Schilder was one of the great Christian thinkers and leaders of this [20th] century, but much maligned. His trilogy on Christ’s passion is one of the great works of our time. Schilder fought against compromise within the church, and against the Nazi invaders of the Netherlands in World War II, often with the same enemies in both camps. Power and utilitarian considerarions governed Schilder’s enemies, not the Lord . . . The task of reformation is a very, very urgent one. — R.J. Rushdoony (in Chalcedon Report of June 1991)
