The Birth of Jesus Christ

with one comment

Much of what people think they know about Jesus in fact doesn’t come from the Bible, but cultural reinventions designed to make Jesus more palatable to the elites and to the masses that accept false gospel as the truth. The Bible makes no mention of how tall he was, it never mentions Jesus being born on December 25, nor does it ever claim he was a candidate for political office. He was too radical for his day (thus ensuring he would be hanged) and he wouldn’t be treated any better today.  Yes, there is mention of an inn, but no innkeeper. I don’t think Norman Bates was alive then 🙂

Then there is the myth of Eve being alone. “When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, [WHO WAS WITH HER], and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.” Genesis 3:6-7

Also, Easter has to do with Tammuz, not Jesus. ‎”Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the Lord’s house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz. Then said he unto to me, ‘Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.” Ezekiel 8:14-15

But this is another topic for another day.  People just infer things when the text doesn’t make any mention of it.  It is a form of inertia.

Now about the birth of Jesus Christ. In the ancient world, a day was when the sun was up and night was when the sun was down. Roughly this would be 6 a.m-6 p.m. for day and 6 p.m.-6a.m. for night.  Our modern methods of timekeeping (such as daylight savings time) obscure this ancient way of tracking time.

A confirmation of this time is in the book of Revelation. Historian Ernest L. Martin consulted NASA lunar-phase tables and found the image of the heavens in Revelation 12 showed where the sun and the moon were, relative to Virgo, at the time Jesus was born, pin-pointing sunset of SEPTEMBER 11th of 3 BC. This would have occurred during the Rosh Hashanah. It is interesting that the Magi and Herod believed what had happened, but the Sadduccees who were supposed to be the most learned about Jewish customs and law were oblivious to this.  The Magi remembered the prophet Daniel and the role he had in the court of Nebuchadnezzar.
It seems the moon moves so quickly it is “beneath the feet” of Virgo (hence the virgin birth) only a few hours every month. Moreover, the moon comes within two lunar diameters of Virgo’s feet at the time of a new moon but once in 30 years.  Josephus tells us that Herod died after a lunar eclipse. Most previous attempts at determining the birth time were based upon astrology and dating the Star of Bethlehem. Most scholars using Emil Schurer’s work as their reference assumed Herod died in late March/early April of 4 BCE. No one considered 3 BCE as a possible year of Jesus’s birth because that year had erroneously been assumed to follow Herod’s death. However, Dr. Martin has proven that Herod did not die in 4 BC, but after an eclipse occurred on January 10, 1 BCE. Scholars are now generally accepting the new chronology for Herod, and this in turn has allowed the confirmation of the New Testament date for the birth of Jesus.  Unfortunately, many churches continue to promote the critics’ errors and paganized traditions about the Nativity.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   
We can tell from Luke’s Gospel that Jesus had been born in early evening, for Luke says the shepherds were keeping watch by night, but still had time to go into town and tell the people what they had seen earlier that evening. People rose early with the sun in those days, and would have been asleep by 9 or 10 pm. Therefore, the birth had taken place no later than 8 pm, and probably before 7 pm. Yet Luke says it happened at night, which means after sunset–surely after 6 pm in September. Hence, it follows that Jesus was born within a few minutes of 6:30-7:30 pm on the evening of September 11th, 3 BC.

It was known widely around the world that God would send a redeemer to rescue mankind and that this was foretold “in the heavens”, and it was widely expected.  However, this redeemer wasn’t the warrior-king that most people expected.  “It was the early evening of June 17, 2 B.C.E. All the cities around Babylon in Mesopotamia were aglow with talk about a spectacular astronomical event being witnessed in the western sky. What had been monitored for several weeks was the planet Venus moving eastward among the stars on what appeared to be a collision course with the planet Jupiter. Now the expected event had happened right in front of their eyes.”  The Magi headed west, met Herod in December to tell them they had arrived with gifts for this king. Read Matthew 2.   

The other account of the birth of Jesus in Luke 2 states 1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed. 2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) 3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

In other words, Rome had just declared a NEW WORLD ORDER!  This particular census wasn’t being done for taxation purposes. It was being done in honor of Augustus Caesar’s 25th year as Roman Emperor. The various governors were competing for the title of “Pater Patriae” (Father of the Country). This title was a designation of loyalty to the emperor.

So do you understand the signifiance of September 11 now? Don’t you think Satan already knew this? Satan was and is the prince of the Earth. All earthly governments pledge their loyalty to Satan. There can be various disagreements about exactly what day Jesus was born. But one thing is for certain: He was not born on December 25.
