War on Christmas | Appointed time | Lights up | Follow Him

My research indicates that Jesus, contrary to what most assume, was born on 9/11 3 BC. A pivotal date for mankind, but resonating deeply with us for dramatically different reasons. I invite you to search out this matter with me as Proverbs 25:2 declares ‘It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter’*.

Proposing its accuracy, we can subsequently extrapolate that Jesus’ conception – one of the most miraculous events in human history – must have occurred during the winter solstice the year prior, the darkest time of the year, exactly around the time we nowadays prepare to celebrate His birth.

The date of 9/11 has, since 2001, been firmly engraved on the memory of humanity. The global elite behind the 9/11 attacks and world impacting aftermath apparently aimed to bind our mental and emotional energy to this date in a lasting way, by imprinting our minds and inflicting deep trauma, in order to hijack and control our response to this date hence forth. Discerning the hidden truth behind their efforts to obscure, replace and tarnish this date will free us to sever the ungodly ties, heal, restore and shift focus to respond more effectively.

War on Christmas

As stated yesterday, there are many prophetic signs and watchmen’s warnings the same elite are scheming to raise havoc the coming days in an even more destructive manner. This synchronizes with what Obama mockingly referred to during the 2012 White House Correspondent’s Dinner  concerning the secret intent behind his second term.

Regardless of the worldwide elite’s nefarious intents, we, encouraged to search out and reprove all evil works, can establish ourselves firmly in Jesus’ truth and love, knowing that He – the light of the world – was actually given to us at both the year’s and time’s darkest hour, exactly at the appointed time. In like manner He reveals Himself to us individually and powerfully manifests Himself in our darkest hours.

Thus, in spite of the global elite’s centuries old efforts to steer us away from worshipping Jesus in general and during Christmas time especially, manifested in distorted religious rituals such as Catholic efforts since 360 AD to celebrate the death of Jesus and widespread pagan festivals such as Saturnalia where, through child sacrifices, Nimrod is worshipped, we pierce through their schemes and remain focussed on the underlying truth. Him. 

Appointed time

Approaching this year’s Christmas celebrations, we discern the world is darkening quickly, resembling the spiritual conditions surrounding the days of Noah and Lot as Jesus foretold…..We live in a world of rapid, radical and deteriorating change. We hear of ‘wars and rumors of war’ as foretold in Matthew 24:6; the worldwide calls for ‘peace and security’ as stated in 1 Thessalonians 5:3 have gone out. Men’s minds, wills and emotions are nearly driven to crisis point by the demanding affairs of the world, lusts of the flesh and pride of life. Many hearts are filled with fear and dread, frustration and despair. Mankind has proven incapable of coping with the pressing problems of our time and is being pressured, seduced and tricked to surrender its God given power, liberty and authority to external, controlling powers.

But, oh what an hour for Christians to be involved in, the greatest spiritual harvest since Pentecost! This dark and near desperate hour in the affairs of mankind is an hour of destiny, a time of unprecedented opportunity. This is the hour for which we were appointed. Darkness and deception may envelop and even penetrate us, but if we remain in Him it will not overtake us. Piercing through, His light can always be found and ours rekindled.

As Peter states in 1 Peter 2:9 ‘But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light’

Lights up

Confirmed by Paul in his letter to the Ephesians 5:6-14 ‘Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. 7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them. 8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: 9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) 10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. 13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. 14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

Follow Him

Jesus will return soon …. and we, who are called to testify of Him and witness His revelation, are urged to trim our lights and go out into the fields and share the gospel.

His love, grace and mercy still abound…..and His Great Commission is still to be fulfilled, as the following video reflects beautifully:

WILL YOU FOLLOW HIM? 

05db06a2d745b1bf1ecb2257d8851a92

Matthew 28:18-20

18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Merry Christmas!

 

 

 

* A starting point to research Jesus’ birth and a short video with key Scriptures and celestial signs to peek your interest and delve into the matter more deeply afterwards.  Another video, looking at the celestial signs, especially the star of Bethlehem, surrounding His birth from an immovable, enclosed earth’s perspective.

In the book The Star that Astonished the World the author states the “Star of Bethlehem” was the planet (or “wandering star” in antiquity) Jupiter, or Zedeq (“Righteousness”) in Hebrew, leading the wise men to Jesus in Bethlehem on December 25, 2 BCE, coinciding with the Jewish Festival of Lamps or Hanukkah that year. Dr. Martin claimed that the birth of Jesus happened on the evening of September 11, 3 BCE on the Gregorian calendar, or the first of Tishri on the Jewish calendar which marks Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year.[3]

    1. Some input regarding the Death of Herod

      The following excerpt is taken from a publication called Prophecy Truths – Exact Date of Yeshua’s Birth Part 5:

      “What about the death of Herod as it relates to all this? After all, many scholars have said that king Herod died in 4 BC or 5 BC? Dr. Ernest L. Martin in his book, laboriously goes through each possibility for the death of king Herod and with a number of other scholars, proves that Herod died a couple of weeks after the total lunar eclipse of January 10, 1 BC. He pinpoints the date of death of Herod to about January 29, 1 BC plus or minus a couple of days.

      Flavius Josephus wrote many details surrounding the death and burial of king Herod in his Jewish Antiquities. He writes that king Herod died shortly after a lunar eclipse. The lunar eclipses for that period of time in Israel were:

      7 BC – no lunar eclipse
      6 BC – no lunar eclipse
      5 BC – total lunar eclipse on March 23, time between eclipse and Passover was 29 days
      5 BC – total lunar eclipse on September 15, time between eclipse and Passover was 7 months
      4 BC – partial lunar eclipse on March 13, time between eclipse and Passover was 29 days
      3 BC – no lunar eclipse
      2 BC – no lunar eclipse
      1 BC – total lunar eclipse on January 10, time between eclipse and Passover was 12.5 weeks.

      Dr. Martin and a number of other scholars have shown that given the details by Josephus and other historians of that time, that king Herod had to have died almost 3 weeks after the lunar eclipse. Then there were preparations for a royal burial and a 30-day period for the procession and burial. After that was over, the new king, Archelaus took care of many royal duties before Passover. Given all this, the two springtime lunar eclipses in 5 and 4 BC could not possibly be the lunar eclipse preceding king Herod’s death.

      The proposed date of A.D. 1 allows an ample three months for all the events that would not fit into one month in 4 B.C. Moreover, it fits the arguments Martin has made concerning the second governorship of Varus, uprisings in the Roman empire in the east beginning in 1 B.C., and the awarding of an imperial acclamation in A.D. 1 or 2, because all of those events would fit well in either A.D. 1 or 1 B.C.

      One of the arguments against a 1 B.C. death date for Herod is that Josephus states that Gaius Caesar was in Rome after Herod’s death, whereas Roman sources state that Gaius was sent in 1 B.C. to the east to squelch a revolt of the Parthians and others.

      An A.D. 1 date for Gaius to have been found in Rome, however, fits better. Gaius became one of the two consuls of the Roman empire, beginning his term on January 1, A.D. 1. Normally the consuls resided in Rome, but because of the unsettled conditions, Gaius was stationed in Syria. According to the Roman historian Dio Cassius, Gaius made peace in early A.D. 1 with Phrataces, king of Parthia. He says, “Nevertheless, war did not break out with the Parthians, either. For Phrataces, hearing that Gaius was in Syria, acting as consul … forestalled action on their part by coming to terms with the Romans…”[20] The relatively peaceful interlude that followed would have been a natural time for Gaius to return to Rome, even if only for a short visit. In A.D. 2, the Armenian war began in which Gaius was wounded; he died in A.D. 4.

      Thus, A.D. 1 presents a more plausible scenario than 1 B.C. for Gaius to have been in Rome after Herod’s death.

      If Herod died in A.D. 1, why did his sons Archelaus, Antipas and Philip reckon their reigns from 4-3 B.C.? The best answer seems to be Martin’s: Herod’s sons reckoned their reigns from the beginning of his son Antipater’s regency with him about 4 B.C., which began either when Antipater was named heir to the throne or later at the death of Herod’s two royal sons. One clue that the latter may be the best choice is that Josephus begins many books at the death of a king (marking the beginning of the next king’s reign) and he begins Book XVII of Antiquities with the death of the royal sons. Herod was the only king until the day he died, but he let Antipater rule with him and handle many of the public affairs. Antipater did not continue in that regency but went to Rome, and he died before Herod, but had he survived, he may well have counted his regnal years from the beginning of his regency under Herod. After Herod’s death, Antipas replaced the former tetrarch of Peraea and might have dated his reign from his death in 2-1 B.C. (shortly after the oath of allegiance). Not to be outdone, Archelaus could have reasoned that he was really continuing the reign of his brother Antipater, which began in 4 B.C. Finally, to maximize their reigns, all three successors might have all adopted that rationale to justify antedating their reigns.

      One argument against this antedating proposal has been that the successors did not actually reign before Herod’s death, but that is not the point. The question is whether or not they did, in fact, antedate their reigns. The earliest coins known for any of the successors’ reigns is for “year 5,” which is consistent with the antedating theory that A.D. 1, their first de facto year, was their fourth or fifth year de jure. Another apparent argument against antedating has been that Herod’s son Philip built a capital city named Paneas, which second and third century coins imply was founded in 3 B.C. That founding date, however, is easily explained as simply being the first year of Philip’s antedated reign.

      Apparently the only other argument against the antedating theory concerns a village that Philip built into a city and renamed Julia. Josephus notes that it had the same name as Augustus’ daughter and Barnes argued that this name must have been given before 2 B.C. when she was banished. This argument, however, is based on an apparent misunderstanding by Josephus. Many Roman colonies were begun throughout the empire named Colonia Julia (or simply Julia), meaning “Julian Colony.” They were named for the Julian (as in Julius Caesar) emperor (Augustus). Another similar example of a feminine name is the fortress Antonia which Herod named for Mark Antony. Josephus also thought that another city named Julia must have been named after Augustus’ wife, the mother of Tiberius, but her name was Livia and she was not known as Julia.

      Could Josephus not have known that Herod’s sons antedated their reigns? That is entirely possible because he knew very little about their reigns. He devoted only one verse in his Antiquities to the ten years of Archelaus and only two more to the first thirty years of Antipas and Philip, whereas Herod’s reign required thirty chapters.

      Josephus only gives two Roman years during Herod’s entire reign: 40 B.C. when he was named king by Rome, and 37 B.C., when he took Jerusalem and had the reigning king killed. Josephus then dates events with the year of Herod’s reign, as if it were obvious which of the two starting points is implied. And perhaps it should be obvious. The custom was to reckon from the death of the former king, which implies 37 B.C.; moreover, Josephus begins a book in his Antiquities with the death of the former king in 37 B.C. The conclusion that Herod’s first year began in 37 B.C. is confirmed by events from Roman history: Augustus’ defeat of Antony in 31 B.C. was in Herod’s seventh year and the expedition of Gallus in 24 B.C. was in Herod’s fourteenth year.

      At Herod’s death, Josephus says that Herod reigned 34 years from the death of the former king, but then adds that he had reigned 37 years counting from the 40 B.C. date. Why did Josephus suddenly reckon from 40 B.C. for the first time? And if Josephus had access to a detailed history of Herod, how could he be wrong about the length of Herod’s reign?

      As a possible answer to both questions, suppose Josephus’ source said Herod reigned 37 years (consistent with his death having been in early A.D. 1). Because other records implied that Herod’s successors reckoned their reigns from 4-3 B.C., he would have seen an apparent conflict because they began to reign at Herod’s death. Faced with this dilemma, he might well have decided that the best solution was that Herod’s 37 years must have been counted from 40 B.C. This explains both why he would have incorrectly assigned 34 years to Herod’s reign as well as why he added the new reckoning from 40 B.C. in order to use the “37 years” from the original source.

      Thus, it is concluded that Herod died in A.D. 1 because the Dec. 29, 1 B.C. eclipse was the most likely, it explains all of the historical evidence, and it’s easy to see how Josephus could have made his mistakes.

  1. The conception date is probably during Hanukkah or the Festival of Light (12/6-12/14 this year. Because the Jesus is the light that has come into the world. It truly is awesome that everything is logical and adds up.

  2. So what. Christmas does not belong to Christians. Let the pagan idol worshippers have it back. Christians should have never adopted it to rename it Christmas. It is not an appointed time and a filthy pagan custom such as halloween.

    1. Jesus’ followers did not name or rename Christmas. The Roman Catholic church did. This website provides insight into the topic.

      http://whatsinthebible.com/why-is-it-called-christmas/

      In and through Christ we are free nonetheless to worship Him every day of the year, Christmas included. We are also free not to participate, celebrate in a sober manner or worship Him in private. This does not have to be a splitting, either/or matter. Jesus judges not only our behavior and attitudes, but the state of our minds and hearts as well and love covers a multitude of sins. Judging other’s inner workings is not our job.

      So, instead of focussing on the indeed apparent pagan falsehoods, distortions and distractions and disallow ourselves or one another to celebrate in His name, let us fellowship with one another and celebrate either His birth or, after studying the matter, His conception into the world and reach out to our loved ones.

    2. I totally agree with you. It is a pagan holiday, and therefore just another day. Jesus was not born on this day. It is a filthy pagan custom. I am so relieved to have learned this! I have been feeling better eversince. Everyday is a day to worship Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior!

    1. Dear Truthseeker,

      The video you sent me features Benjamin Cousijnsen, a self proclaimed prophet who doesn’t uphold to Schriptural standards unfortunately.

      Many blessings,
      Sabine

  3. Jesus , our Lord and Savior. Forever shall he be. Curse the Evil in this World, reprove it. Lord Jesus allready set the sword on this place and has allready won!. Without one stroke of violence The Good Lord with Our Heavenly Father . There is no other worthy of praise, we were given a chance to go back home with our Father, praise The one who shed his blood for our debauchery and repent, as many of you know time is running out.

  4. great article…I believe Jesus was born on a specific day and will return on same…Feast of trumpets, signified by 2 silver (redemption) trumpets…Never occurred to me that He may have been conceived at the Christmas season…thank you for the insight, I’ll add that to my Sunday sermon!…Gods feast days are set times and are accurate, but on both our calendar and the Jewish, things float a bit. God Bless You…I found you through John Little’s “The shock letter” web site.

    1. Dear rev. Jones, You are very welcome. Thank you for your feedback and many blessings to you and your congregation. Sabine
