Gods Word, the deeper one studies, the deeper one finds the word goes, until it sometimes feels like swimming in the center of the Pacific Ocean with the bottom more than 30,000 feet below your longest reach with your toes. Worth the Biblical Swim though.
This may not look like poetry, but my heart says to say it:
My response to the question about Jesus' Creation being Dec 25, not His Birth:
Shalom, Robert, one and all.
Robert, you ask: "...
Has anyone heard that the conception of the Holy Spirit within Mary was December 25th., and Rosh Hashanah[feast of trumpets- in September was his true birth?I have been studying verification of this. The rabbi's believe their messiah will come on feast of trumpets. It makes December 25th. seem right being almost 9 months for childbirth, and the scriptures reinforced ,and explains a reason why Christmas was proclaimed for Jesus Birthday. All the feast days, and Jewish holy days seem to align Jesus's life, in fact the Old Testament tells the life of Jesus. Blessings, Robert"
Mary conceiving December 25(ish) is deductulated through the study of John the Baptizer, and his father Zacharias's (priest in the 8th order, 'course of Abia'(Luk 1:5)) encounter with Gabriel, more than likely at the Feast of Shavuot/Pentecost (Feast of Counting), when 'selected,' by lottery, to burn the 'Incense,' in the Holy (Not the Holy of Holies). Elizabeth was six months into her pregnancy, per Gabriel to Mary, when Mary accepted her fate of condemnationable (not yet Snatched away by the Groom) pregnancy, punishable by stoning. Mary goes to visit Elizabeth about three months prior to Barley harvest (March(ish)), until JTB was born, and Zachariah regained his voice (scared the people out of their wit's end (a tad of humor)), and named his son, "Yochanan (John)." Mary returns home (Barley Harvest) three months pregnant (just beginning to 'show'), and in all probability gave birth to Jesus on the Night (preceding the day part) of Tishri 15, Sukkot/Tabernacles.
IMO Jesus could not have been born on Rosh Hashanah/Yom Teruah/Feast of Trumpets, for a couple of reasons: 1) Yom Teruah is the heralding of His Second Coming, reserved for Armageddon, as the cleansing/Justification of Israel, Yom Kippur/Day of Atonement, is also reserved for after Armageddon. 2) A forgotten portion of the Feasts of God, the Eighth Day Feast, immediately following the seven days of Sukkot (first days of Life), which few people notice, or study. Perchance (IMO here, with no documented support, other than other opinions), this feast coincides with the Eighth Day after Birth, when the Mark of God is applied to the male child, belonging only to God, Circumcision? That would explain the day Jesus was born, the reason they were required to go to Jerusalem (Sukkot/Tabernacles, and declared census/tax), and give celebratory reason for the Eighth Day Feast (which no man knows or understands the reason for the 'day') (ok, a play on words).

In conclusion, We, of the Western world, need our reminders put back in gear, as God reminds us, 'Life, begins at ''Conception,'' not air-breathing ''Birth''. We are right in celebrating the Birth of Jesus, as Christmas, but it should be the "Conception of Christ-mass." IMHO, Jesus came, First Time, on Tishri 15, and I fully expect Him to arrive, His Second Coming, Tishri 1 (Yom Teruah/Rosh Hashanah) with all the Trumps of God Blaring to 'High Heaven,' and ALL things, of this Age closed out before Tishri 10 (Day of Atonement/Yom Kippur)(The Day Jubilee (number 120, by the way) is Declared. The three days between Yom Kippur, and Sukkot, the TIME OF PURIFICATION.... for GOD's Tabernacle with Man, for HIS Millennial Kingdom Rule. AMEN
Oh, what a time of days, we are entering, being a part of, with the BEST, yet to come, the Great Snatching, very very soon now, IMHO. Oh, and in answer to your question about hearing about Dec 25,,, heh-heh, Yep, I have; and have been trying to teach that information for quite a while, with no one in my locality, nor on the Forums, seemingly willing to discuss 'conception.'
While I have everyone's attention, I pray, .... Has anyone ever been concerned about how to disprove Darwinian long flow adjustment thought?? Zola Levitt Ministries, and J. R. Church, both have excellent teachings that takes the gestation through the Feasts of God, exactly, a very-very worthy Christian tour of the birth of a child, and a walk through a small portion of how God Thinks, and organizes. I started to poeticize the gestation, but about mid-page two, I realized I would need write a book with only one poem in it, as it would need be at least 200 pages long. Ha....think I will wait a while, until when no one will care, because they all already know the story, in Heaven.
In Messiah, I keep the Watch, and return to my studies of the events I believe I see coming at us like a light in a dark tunnel.
I offer my above words as 'food for thought.' Please Ponder
