We shall not throw the Julian/ Gregorian calendar away. But we need to learn God’s Calendar and use His days and ways to worship, honor and draw close to Him. It is the same Calendar which Yeshua (Jesus) used. The lack of knowledge of His calendar has led to so many misunderstandings and mistakes in our walk with Him.
Why is the beginning of our new year placed in the middle of a dead winter ?? How did the celebration of New Year’s Eve begin ?? And where did the many customs surrounding it originate ?? And also; why is the Rosh Hashana celebrated as the Jewish New Year worldwide in the fall (September- October) ?? Are they in the Bible in the “Feasts of the Lord” ??
Was Yeshua/ Jesus really born in Bethlehem during the winter? The New Testament speaks of shepherds tending their sheep in the fields.
The problem is, this story may be almost entirely wrong. The events surrounding the birth have been retold so many times and in so many ways— in plays, poetry, books and movies— that most people have a distorted view of the true events. The only accurate record is found in the Holy Bible, God’s Word.
