Jesus’ Birth Foretold
26 Now in the sixth month [of Elizabeth’s pregnancy] the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city in Galilee called Nazareth, 27 to a virgin [a]betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, a descendant of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. 28 And coming to her, the angel said, “Greetings, favored one! The Lord is with you.” 29 But she was greatly perplexed at what he said, and kept carefully considering what kind of greeting this was. 30 The angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. 31 Listen carefully: you will conceive in your womb and give birth to a son, and you shall name Him Jesus. 32 He will be great and eminent and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David; 33 and He will reign over the house of Jacob (Israel) forever, and of His kingdom there shall be no end.” 3
A Blessed Advent Season, Hanukkah, Winter & Christmas,
NO, It's NOT February/March (Adar on The Biblical Calendar), but most 3-5 year olds can add 2+2=4, so if Mary conceived by The Holy Spirit, according to the above portion of Holy Script and gave birth to The Christ/Messiah/Anointed ONE 9 months later, we're looking at December 25th as a very logical time for Jesus' birth. Interestingly enough, EVERY Year, starting on the 25th of Kislev, which occurs in November-December on the Gregorian calendar and is sometimes known as the month of dreams, the Nation of Israel Celebrates The Feast Of Dedication or what's also known as The Festival Of Lights, Chunakah! Around 167 B.C. Antiochus "Ephanes" (God Manifest) desecrated The Temple in Jerusalem, by ordering a pig slaughtered on the altar and erected an image of the Greek god Zeus as the new point of worship, so a godly priest, Mattathias and his five sons, one who was named Judah and was nicknamed "Maccabee" (the hammer) reacted with holy indignation, drove out the Syrians and recaptured The Holy Site Of God's Presence, but to rededicate It, they only had enough oil to light the golden menorah (lampstand) for one day, miraculously though, God not only gave them the victory in the battle, but He had the oil burn for eight days, so "A Great Miracle Happened There!"
On Tuesday, December 21st, at 8:59 A.M. MT in New Mexico, the winter solstice begins, when the Earth tilts its axis, which makes one half of Earth point away from the Sun and the other half points towards it. Solstice comes from Latin sol "sun" and sistere "to stand still," so loosely translated means "sun stand still" and it's the shortest day of the year! Folklore tells us that winter comes yawning, so my questions to you would be, As the day gets shorter, will you lean towards or away from The Son and Will you 'Be Still & Come To Experientially Know That HE IS GOD?'
Jesus Asserts His Deity
22 At that time the [a]Feast of Dedication took place at Jerusalem. 23 It was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple [area] in [b]Solomon’s portico.
Believe it or not, my title has meaning. A.D., the term, Ante Christum natum, denoted the years before the birth of Jesus Christ and was first proposed in the year 525 by Dionysius Exiguus, a Christian monk. It is the Latin equivalent to the English "BC" and used to label or number years in the Julian and Gregorian calendars, meaning to, toward or before. Ads are to inspire you to action, get you involved, plus should uniquely identify, personalize, be relevant, useful, competitive and intelligently drive awareness, to increase, improve your customer (consumer) base acceptability through visuals, so you can reach, grow, achieve your goals and engage your audience. Vent , simply means (OPENING) to express ideas, give utterance or release, you let something out, a strong emotion, energy, to let off steam, saying what's on your mind, give free expression to (a strong emotion), get it off your chest or voice your opinion, so as to reduce our stress levels. The right way of venting can connect you to a supportive, positive, and understanding community, making it easy to share your REAL feelings with people who care. In Latin, ventus, French, eventur, vent, Spanish, viento ("wind") and ventana ("window"), all point to the biblical reality of The Holy Spirit or Breath Of God! Can we, as Gentiles & Jews, inspire one another to a right relationship with God and each other, according to His Holy & Precious Word, so that we may enter into His FULLNESS? THIS Is The Will Of GOD for ALL of us, because He wishes that NONE would perish and that ALL would Come Unto HIM, especially during this very special time and season! May The Light Of The World, The ONE Who celebrated this time, allow you to enter into The Holy Spirit of THIS Festive Season, so that YOU Can BE 'The Light Of The World' and Let Your LIGHT Shine.
