Mat 2:7  Then Herod privily called the Wise-men, and learned of them exactly what time the star appeared.
Mat 2:8  And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search out exactly concerning the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word, that I also may come and worship him.
Mat 2:9  And they, having heard the king, went their way; and lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.
Mat 2:10  And when they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
Mat 2:11  And they came into the house and saw the young child with Mary his mother; and they fell down and worshipped him; and opening their treasures they offered unto him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh.
Mat 2:12  And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.
Mat 2:13  Now when they were departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I tell thee: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.
Mat 2:14  And he arose and took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt;
Mat 2:15  and was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt did I call my son.
Mat 2:16  Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the Wise-men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the male children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the borders thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had exactly learned of the Wise-men.
Mat 2:17  Then was fulfilled that which was spoken through Jeremiah the prophet, saying,
Mat 2:18  A voice was heard in Ramah, Weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children; And she would not be comforted, because they are not.

Herod said that he was mocked by the Wise-men. What is this word mock? The concordance says it is to play with, to delude, to deceive. Herod himself was lying, deceiving and mocking the Wise-men when he said he wanted to worship the newborn king. His intent was to kill him and he tried to kill him by murdering all the babies under 2 years of age in Bethlehem. The Wise-men and Joseph were warned by God in a dream to flee, and they fled. I believe that the Holy Spirit will warn the children of God of someone who is lying or has evil plans. We have the spirit of truth, but the world must hear from God by conscience or by dreams. Often they believe what they hear or see on the controlled media. Being politically correct often means it is incorrect according to God's will. We must be careful to not be swept away by public opinions, not to follow unsaved friends, or popular celebrities. We are to examine all things by the light of God's word. Liars are everywhere. A liar has no fear of God, they mock God with their lies, having no concern for his authority.

Rev 21:6  And he said unto me, They are come to pass. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
Rev 21:7  He that overcometh shall inherit these things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
Rev 21:8  But for the fearful, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and fornicators, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, their part shall be in the lake that burneth with fire and brimstone; which is the second death.

You cannot mock God and get by with it.
