The Birth of Yeshua the Messiah


I love this time of year and these appointed times of Adonai.. . especially this week long celebration of Feast of Tabernacles. God instructs us to keep this feast in Leviticus 23, Numbers 29 and Deuteronomy 16. 
“You shall keep the Feast of Booths for seven days, when you have gathered in the produce from your threshing floor and your wine press. You shall rejoice in your feast...For seven days you shall keep the feast to the Lord your God at the place that the Lord will choose,because the Lord your God will bless you in all your produce and in all the work of your hands,so that you will be altogether joyful."
 I've been thinking about this piece of writing below and wanted to share it with you Gail-Friends.  I don't know the original author of this article, but it's something I hope you will pray and think about:

"The Messiah of Israel was not born at "Christmas" neither was His conception at "Christmas." People often say that nobody knows when He was born for sure, so we just pick a day. There is no truth to this. Scripture tells us that He came to "Tabernacle" among us on Sukkot/The Feast of Tabernacles. (Jn 1:14)
When we dig a little deeper, we see that Yochanan the Immerser/John the Baptist was born on the Feast of Pesach/Passover. He came in the Spirit of Eli'yahu/Elijah. (Luke 1:17) The Jews have a long standing custom on Passover to open the door and cal
l out for Eli'yahu! They even leave an empty chair and a place-setting at the table for him. Why? "Why do the scribes say that Eli'yahu must come first?" And our Messsiah responded "Indeed, Eli'yahu is coming first and will restore all things. But I say to you that ELI'YAHU HAS ALREADY COME, AND THEY DID NOT KNOW HIM... Then the disciples understood that He spoke of Yochanan the Immerser." (Matt 17:10-13) 
So, how do we know that John was born on Passover? Scripture states that Zechar'yah served as Priest in the Temple under the division of Abi'yah. (Luke 1:5) A further study of 1Chron 24 tells us when this is. Elisheba/Elizabeth was 6 months pregnant when Miryim arrived to assist her, (Luke 1:26) so our Messiah was born 6 months after John... on Sukkot/The Feast of Tabernacles. He was not born in a barn, it was a sukkah. He was not placed in a feeding trough, He was wrapped up and placed in a food crib, (a storage bin to keep the food off the ground) ... as the Bread of Life.
He was indeed conceived nine months before on Chanukah/The Feast of Rededication, rededicating mankind to the Father. Chanukah is not "Christmas" as they are often more as twenty days apart. Chanukah is also known as "The Festival of Lights." The word "LIGHT" is used seven times in six verses. (Jn 1:4-9):
"In Him was life, and the life was the LIGHT of mankind."
"And the LIGHT shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it"
John came to "bear witness of the LIGHT..."
"He was not the LIGHT but came to bear witness of that LIGHT."
"That was the true LIGHT which gives LIGHT to every man coming into the world."
When we remove the Babylonian glasses, we see the tremendous beauty of the Feasts. The Word is so very awesome, but we must scrape away man-made religion to see It as IT IS WRITTEN."


  1. Very interesting! I like how he pointed out that it wasn't a feeding trough, but a crib to hold the food. I have also read that Yeshua was born in the special place/cave that ewes birthed the sacrificial lambs. Micah called it the Tower of the Flock. I looked it up, and here is a good website that talks about it. https://truthinscripture.net/2017/01/21/jesus-birth-the-case-for-midal-edar/

    I've often heard that Jesus was born in the spring or autumn, and of course we know it was 6 mo after John, but I never noticed that we knew the month when John was born because it would have been about 9 months after the angel spoke to him. This was very interesting and makes so much sense! I looked it up, and again, this same website came up about John and Jesus' birth month and it agrees with what you wrote here, but I love how it was pointed out that he came to "tabernacle" among us and it was during the feast of tabernacles. I'm unsure if that agrees with this guy, who believes that through Bible clues and astronomy Jesus was born on 9/11/0003 https://truthinscripture.net/2016/12/27/jesus-birth-birth-of-john-the-baptist/ I never gave this much thought before, so thank you!

    1. I'm glad it made you think - and search the Scriptures. Keep in mind the Jewish calendar is different than the one we use today.
