Happy Birthday Y'shua. Part Two

Continuing with our discussion about the birth date of Yeshua ha Mashiach, Jesus Christ, here are some more facts. Trust me they may not appear important, but I promise I'll put it all together during the last post on this subject.

About 6-7 AD, the Holy Men of Jerusalem tore their clothes, putting on sackcloth and ashes, and went out into the midst of the city and wailed loudly and bitterly,

"Woe unto us for the scepter has departed from Judah and the Messiah has not come!"

Babylonian Talmud, Chapter 4, folio 37

In Bereshit (Genesis)49:10, Israel prophesies over his son Judah saying,

"The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.

Here the Word of G-d states that the scepter of Judah or the ability to administer and enforce the law would not be taken away from them until Shiloh, the Messiah, had come.

Because Rome had taken away the right of Israel to enforce the death penalty, the priests believed that the Word of G-d had failed them. The Scepter of Judah had indeed been taken away from them. However, were they correct in believing that the Messiah had not come?

Happy Birthday Y'shua. Part One

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the Throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever."

Isaiah 9:6-7

"But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting."

Micah 5:2

Two important verses to remember in order to secure your position as to the actual date that Yeshua was born. Please notice that I emphasized the important facts within these verses.

Over the next few days, we will state only the facts concerning this controversial subject. Remember, it is only by G-ds Holy Spirit and your relationship with him that you arrive at the truth. This is written in Acts 17:11.

"... in that they recieve the message with all eagerness of heart, but searched the scriptures to whether those things were so."

Therefore, be in prayer and supplication about it. I believe this an important step in tearing down the walls of traditional thought and paganistic christian teachings and getting back to basic biblical truth taught by G-d and his Holy Spirit.

Shabbat Shalom in the Messiah, Yeshua
