We Three Kings

“Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him.” When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.” Matthew 2:1

We Three Kings of Orient are…
Is it significant that the magi came from the east?
When Cain was exiled, he went to the land of Nod in the east.
The Tabernacle was oriented east. The Temple was oriented east. Jesus was crucified east of the temple. Jesus will return to the temple from the east.

“The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river, the Euphrates; and its water was dried up, so that the way would be prepared for the kings from the east.” Revelation 16:12

Presumably, these are evil kings, but again, the easterly direction is highlighted.
