We need to look at the time line and the sequence of events to bring this truth to light .. In the book of Luke 1 Zacharias was in his term/office of the priests, when Gabriel came to him and told him that Elizabeth would bare a son and his name would be John, who in turn was the forerunner declaring and preparing the way .. For the Messiah to come, preaching the remission of sins and baptizing in the waters. When Elizabeth was with child some months along, Mary also was visited; The Holy Spirit rested upon Mary and the Power of the Father, the MOST HIGH over shadowed her and she became with child. EMMANUEL “GOD WITH US” There is much more to this story as Julia has done some awesome research to further prove Messiah was not born on December 25th.
Luke 2:8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
In Israel the shepherds bring in the flocks toward the end of September early October approximately, so with that said, according to scripture there is no way that Messiah was born on December 25th.
Come out of her my people!!!
