When Was Our Messiah Really Born ??

 

 

Matthew 1:21

21 She will give birth to a son; and you shall call His name Yeshua (Jesus),

for He will save His people from their sins.”

 

Immanuel

 

Personally I do not believe in the man-made holiday of Christmas at all

as it is obviously not found in Scripture.

It did not exist 2000 years ago and was not a part of the early Followers of

Yeshua (Jesus) or even early Christian religious tradition.

Not even a very good lie.

 

However, it is our responsibility to educate both Jews and pagans on the birth

of the Messiah and the prophecies about His birth- for example:

 

Messiah would make atonement for our sins (Isaiah 53:5/ Isaiah 53)
Where He would be born (Micah 5:2)
He would be born a virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14)
He must be a descendant from King David (2 Samuel 7:12–13)
He would be called out of Egypt (Hosea 11:1)
His ministry would start in Galilee (Isaiah 9:1–7/ 8:23–9:6)
He would come riding into Jerusalem on a donkey (Zechariah 9:9)
He must die before the destruction of the Second Temple (Daniel 9:26)
They would cast lots for His clothes (Psalm 22:18)
30 pieces of silver would be the price paid for Him (Zechariah 11:12)
Not one of His bones would be broken (Psalm 34:20)
He would be smitten and spat upon (Isaiah 50:6)

Amos 3:7

7 Surely the Lord God does nothing,

Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.

 

One thing I find very very interesting.

There is not even single one prophesy in the Bible that tells us about

Christian Jesus instead of Jewish Yeshua (biblical Jesus).

The birth of the Messiah to Miryam (Mary), a virgin, was miraculous as was

the life that Yeshua lived a completely holy life without flaw.

This flawless lamb became the Kapora, a sacrifice for us who are in need of

redemption and forgiveness of sin.

Through Yeshua, God shows us His love for all mankind, that He was willing to

sacrifice His only begotten Son that we might have eternal life.

The Hebrew/ Aramaic name Yeshua in fact means salvation.

Was Yeshua really born in Bethlehem during the winter ??

The Brit Chadashah (The New Covenant or as we call the New Testament)

speaks of shepherds tending their sheep in the fields:

 

Luke 2:8-12

8 Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields,

keeping watch over their flock by night.

9 And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them,

and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid.

10 Then the angel said to them,

“Do not be afraid, for behold,

I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.

11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior,

who is Messiah the Lord.

12 And this will be the sign to you:

You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths,

lying in a manger.”

 

I suspect that these were the sheep intended for sacrifice in the daily

Temple ceremonies.

One way or another, Yerushalayim/ Jerusalem and its environs can be

extremely cold in late December and often are covered in snow.

And that is making it unlikely that the shepherds would have been able to

graze their sheep at that time of the year, sleeping with them outside.

Miryam conceived when her cousin Elisheva (Elizabeth) was in her 6th month

of pregnancy (Luke 1:24–26).

Elizabeth probably conceived early in the 5th month of the Hebrew calendar

(Av/ July).

This is likely since the angel Gavriel appeared to her husband Zachariah while

he was serving in the Temple as a priest in the division of Abijah (Luke 1:5) and

advised him that Elizabeth would become pregnant (Luke 1:11–24).

 

The virgin’s name was Mary. Luke 1:26-27.

 

Luke 1:5

 

The Abijah served during the last two weeks of the 4th month of the

Hebrew calendar (Tammuz), which is about late June

(1 Chronicles 24:1-19 & 27:2/ Exodus 12:1,2/ Esther 3:7).

And the Bible says that after Zechariah came home from his service

(in early Av/ July), Elizabeth conceived (Luke 1:23–25).

Hebrew/ Jewish and our months

 

9 months of pregnancy and another 6 months of Miryam’s pregnancy

(15 months total) brings us to the 7th month of the Hebrew calendar (Tishrei),

during which falls Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles).

Through these clues we can come to a fairly educated conclusion that Yeshua

may have indeed been born during the season of Sukkot, also known as

the Feast of Tabernacles, which occurs in late September or early October.

Yeshua (Jesus) was born most likely on the 1st day of Sukkot.

8 days after His birth, the Child was circumcised and named Yeshua (Jesus).

This was the name the angel had given him before his mother became pregnant.

 

Luke 2:21

21 Eight days after his birth,

the child was circumcised and named Yeshua.

This was the name the angel had given him before

his mother became pregnant.

Sukkot/ the Feast of Tabernacles is also in the Bible instead of Christmas is

nowhere in the Bible.

The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days to the Yahweh…   On the eighth day you shall have a holy convocation, and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Yahweh.

 

Leviticus 23/ Feasts of the Lord:

 

• 1. The Sabbath
• 2. The Passover and Unleavened Bread
• 3. The Feast of Firstfruits
• 4. The Feast of Weeks
• 5.The Feast of Trumpets
• 6.The Day of Atonement
• 7.The Feast of Tabernacles

Truth or fables

 

And then you can find in the Bible Purim (”lots”/ Esther 9:20-25) and Hanukkah

(the Feast of Dedication/ John 10:22).

But you cannot find Christmas in the Bible- and I cannot find it either.

The later selection of December 25 as the date to celebrate the birth of the

Messiah was a decision made by the Catholic Church.

Evidence suggests that the association of Messiah’s birth with the day of

Sol Invictus began sometime in the mid 4th century.

The establishment of December 25 as the day of the birth of the Messiah

coincides with another pagan holiday called Saturnalia.

This was a week-long celebration of lawlessness in which the courts were closed

and all manners of lewdness were allowed.

As late as the 18th and 19th centuries, the rabbis of the ghetto in Rome were required

to dress up like clowns during the Saturnalia carnival.

They were forced to march through the streets while jeering crowds pelted them with

various missiles.

On December 25, 1881, in Poland, the mobs were whipped into a frenzy and attacked

Jewish communities throughout the country.

In Warsaw alone, 12 were killed and many maimed while

scores of women were raped.

Although many Christmas customs like caroling have beautiful interpretations and

explanations, they originally had nothing to do with the birth of the Messiah.

Rather, they spring from the very sin that Yeshua came to redeem us from.

The Christmas tree, which is a fairly recent innovation, has been connected to the

Canaanite worship of the Asherah pole and the adoration of trees, including bringing

them into their homes and decorating them.

The pagans also regarded the Evergreen tree as a phallic symbol in fertility worship.

 

Asherah
Asherah, along with Astarte and Anath, was one of the three great goddesses of the Canaanite pantheon. In Canaanite religion her primary role was that of mother goddess.

 

Jeremiah 10:1–4:

1 Hear the word which the Lord speaks to you, O house of Israel.

2 Thus says the Lord:

“Do not learn the way of the Gentiles;

Do not be dismayed at the signs of heaven,

For the Gentiles are dismayed at them.

3 For the customs of the peoples are futile;

For one cuts a tree from the forest,

The work of the hands of the workman, with the ax.

4 They decorate it with silver and gold;

They fasten it with nails and hammers

So that it will not topple.

The Druids used mistletoe to poison their human sacrificial victims.

Its use at Christmas time is reminiscent of the sexual license of Saturnalia

combined with the Druidic sacrificial cult.

Pagans believed that the white berries of mistletoe represented the drops of

semen of the sun god.

Holly, along with mistletoe, was hung in the doorways of temples and homes

to bring about the powers of fertility in those who stood beneath and kissed,

causing the spirits of the god and goddess to enter them.

During the time of the Roman Saturnalia, the most despised citizens were

compelled to bring offerings and gifts.

This led to general gift-giving among the populace and it carried over into

the Christian celebration of Christmas where it was given a new root,

linking it with the gift-giving of Saint Nicholas.

Santa Claus is a fairly recent innovation connected to some very old traditions.

Some trace the origin of Santa Claus to Nicholas, who was born in Parara,

Turkey in AD 270 and later became Bishop of Myra.

He was known for his generous giving to the needy, often anonymously,

sometimes placing coins in the shoes of the poor.

Nicholas died in AD 343 on December 6th.

He soon became nicknamed Sinter Klaas or Saint Nicholas by the people with

a feast day set aside for him, but has never been officially canonized by

the Catholic Church.

In 1087, a group of sailors who idolized Nicholas moved his bones from

Turkey to a sanctuary in Bari, Italy.

There, veneration of him became mixed with celebration of Pasqua Epiphania

who was thought to fill children’s stockings with gifts.

A cult grew up around Nicholas, and members gave each other gifts during the

remembrance of Nicholas’ death on December 6.

 

St-nicholas-day

 

The cult spread north where it was adopted by German and Celtic pagans.

Their chief god was Odin (Woden) who had a long white beard.

When Nicolas merged with Woden, he shed his Mediterranean appearance

and took on the white beard and heavy winter clothing.

 

Odin- Woden

 

In an attempt to attract pagan adherents, the Catholic Church adopted the

Nicholas cult and taught that gifts should be distributed as he did,

on December 25th rather than on December 6th.

The name Santa Claus was given to him by the Dutch and picked up and

used in a satire by the American writer Washington Irving of the

“Headless Horseman” fame.

Although, this is a good day to make much of the gift of Yeshua (Jesus),

and to share the Good News of His coming to all who will listen.

We can rejoice not only in the birth of Yeshua (Jesus),

but also in the knowledge that Yeshua (Jesus) is returning soon.

Today, He is the King of those who freely chose to follow Him.

When He returns, He will rule and reign as King of Israel on

the throne of David- and the entire earth will bow to His Kingship.

 

Isaiah 9:6

 

1 Corinthians 11:23-25
Institution of the Lord’s Supper

23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you:

that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread;

24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said,

“Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you;

do this in remembrance of Me.”

25 In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying,

“This cup is the new covenant in My blood.

This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”

 

Luke 22:19-20

19 And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying,

“This is My body which is given for you;

do this in remembrance of Me.”

20 Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying,

“This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.

 

1 Corinthians 11:23-25

 

Maranatha (the Lord is coming/ come, O Lord) !!!!

 

Isaiah 9:6

6 For unto us a Child is born,

Unto us a Son is given;

And the government will be upon His shoulder.

And His name will be called

Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,

Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

 

And this Child, this Son was born in autumn.
