|Yahshua the Messiah was born on June 6th, not December 25th
|The Bible tells that the archangel Gabriel appeared to Mary in the sixth month
(Luke 1) calendar is Abib or Nisan which is April (Exodus 12:2, 13:4). The
Hebrew sixth month is Elul, which is September on our calendar and nine months
later would be June. If the Messiah were to be born in December, Mary would
have been six months pregnant at the time Gabriel appeared to her.
Luke 2:8 says that the “shepherds were abiding in the field, keeping watch over
their flock by night,” not sweeping snow or keeping their flocks inside the stables,
on the day that the Messiah was born.
The Creator set the beginning of the year in April or Springtime because of the
budding of the trees and rejuvenation of plant life representing the birth of Mother
Earth. Summertime is when the plants and fruits come into fruition. The Fall
represents a dying state and the Winter is like a death state. The Creator would
never have chosen the Wintertime to be manifested. He chose to be born in the
Summer representing the fullness of fruition. [ Hebrews 10:7 “Then said I, Lo, I
come in the volume of the book, it is written of me, to do thy will, O Yahweh.” ]
The Creator placed Adam in the Garden of Eden or earth plane on the 6th day.
(Genesis 1:26-31, 2:8) The Apostles knew who the Messiah was, and Paul
described Yahshua in 1st Corinthians 15:45-47 by calling Him the second Adam,
fulfilling that which He instituted (Luke 24:44) as the first Adam, therefore again
being born on the 6th day.
Early religious leaders had not concerned themselves with the Messiah’s
birthdate and it wasn’t until the year 336 A.D. that the date of December 25th was
assigned. The Hebrew Festival of Lights - Hanukkah, and the Pagan Festival of
Saturnalia, worshipping the Roman God of Saturn, were both at this time.
December 25th was celebrated by Romans as the Mithraic Festival of the Sun
God and was also near the Winter Solstice of Dec. 22nd. Since these religious
leaders did not know the Messiah’s true birthdate, they associated it to coincide
with these existing pagan holidays. The first recorded celebration of Christmas
(Christ Mass) was in Italy during the 11th century.
The title or name of “Christ” was taken from the Greek God “Cristos” and violates
the first three of the Creator’s Ten Commandments. [1. Thou shalt have no other
gods before me. 2. Thou shalt not make any graven image, nor bow thyself
down to them, nor serve them. 3. Thou shalt not take the name of Yahweh thy
Elohim in vain, for Yahweh will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.]
The Creator was against the Pagan worship of false deities, mainly because
there aren’t any. (Isaiah 46:9 “Remember the former things of old: for I am
Yahweh, and there is none else; I am Yahweh, and there is none like me.”)
So the Creator spoke through Jeremiah and in the 10th chapter it says “Thus
saith Yahweh, Learn not the way of the heathen, …. For the customs of the
people are vain; for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of a
workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; fasten it with nails
and with hammers, that it move not.” (Christmas trees)
With a perfected understanding of Yahweh’s eternal purpose, the Apostle Saul
wrote in Colossians 2:16 “Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink,
or in respect of an holyday” (holiday).
