With Vision comes Revelation!
With the traditional Christmas right around the corner I want to share something that has always intrigued me… and that is When was Jesus really born?
First, I want to start with a personal story before I go into the biblical prophecies, facts and events.
There was a time I was very depressed and Christ came to me in a vision and handed me a amethyest stone and stated that He was my “Living Rock” and that I was his precious stone. He then showed me the 12 foundational stones in scripture where I had been meditating for quite some time. He spoke to my heart that I am HIS amethyst stone. Very shortly after that day a long lost friend of mine came over out of the blue and handed me a beautiful amethyest stone.. the confirmation was awesome!
“And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. Rev 21:18-20
*I used to wonder how the 12 stone (month) with Amethyst as the birth stone could be December.. read till the end….
Okay now lets search the scriptures. We learn that Jesus is born 6 months after John the baptist; thefore we must start with The prophecy of John the Baptist:
“When his time of service was completed, he returned home. After this his wife Elizabeth became pregnant and for five months remained in seclusion. In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favoured! The Lord is with you.” Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favour with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob for ever; his kingdom will never end.” “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?” The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month. Luke 1,23-24, 26-36
Now let’s look at some biblical history, facts & events:
We know that when Christ was born, He was born in a manger in Bethlehem. Shepherds, told by an angel of His birth, visited Him and found Him “wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger” -Luke 2:12-17.
Eight days later Mary and Joseph had Him circumcised, according to the commandment –Luke 2:21 Mary then fulfilled the days of her purification — which culminated 40 days after His birth.-Luke 2:22-24
So we are talking about a Jesus and Mary started her purification 8 days AFTER her Son’s birth. Nowadays known as the 40 Days of Fasting before Passover/Easter. According to several scientific researches by renowned historian scholars we know that Passover was on April 14th in 4 B.C. mainly because they know when King Herod died.
Now the year of Herod’s death has been ascertained with, we may say, absolute certainty, as shortly before the Passover of the year 750 A.U.C., which corresponds to about the 14th of April of the year 4 B.C., according to our common reckoning. More particularly, shortly before the death of Herod there was a lunar eclipse, which it is astronomically ascertained, occurred on the night from the 12th to the 13th of March of the year 4 B.C.
Now we go on to those renowned Wise Men who followed the so called ‘Star of Bethlehem’ which was in fact the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in the constellation of Pisces. Which occurs every 800 years and it was in the year 7 B.C..and only visible for 15 days.
As Biblical history tells us that the Star was shown when ‘Jesus’ was born, the Wise Men walked on and were not already there when he was a fresh born baby. PLUS they respectfully would have to wait for visitation after the purification period. Which ended April 11th. We know so because of the passing of King Herod 3 years later, and seen it all happened before the invention of the leap-days, we can just count back from April 14th in 4 B.C., to April 13th in 5 B.C., April 12th in 6 B.C. and April 11th in 7 B.C.
Sometime not too long after His birthday, the wise men visited Him, and gave Him gifts. -Matt.2:1-11. When they arrived, they found him as a “young child” -Matt.2:9, 11.
— in year 5 before the Christian era, brings us to the year 747 A.U.C., or 7 years before Christ [B.C.], in which such a Star should appear in the East.
The Star shall rise forth from the East, and this is the Star of the Messiah. And it will shine from the East for fifteen days, and if it be prolonged, it will be for the good of Israel. Did such a Star, then, really appear in the East seven years before the Christian era? Astronomically speaking, and without any reference to controversy, THERE CAN BE NO DOUBT THAT THE MOST REMARKABLE CONJUNCTION OF PLANETS — THAT OF JUPITER AND SATURN in the constellation of Pisces, which occurs ONCE IN 800 YEARS.
So to sum up events we have to see the WHOLE picture.. biblical dates, customs, prophecies and events..
Conjunction Jupiter/Saturn in Pisces, February 7 B.C.
End of purification April 11th 7 B.C.
Minus the 40 purification days and the 8 days await after ‘Jesus’ his Birth for his Circumcision equals:
Jeshua (Jesus) was a Pisces born between February 24th- 28th in 7 B.C. ❤
*To help one understand a bit more, because there are a ton of other studies that put his birth at September dates, April dates and other dates, let us remember the December date is a catholic date & not from the Jewish calander . Plus biblical months are two months difference, putting December in Febuary. Many scholars claim that John the Baptist was born in June (six months before Jesus.) Keep in mind our current calendar is two months off, which would make his true birth month August; thefore putting Jesus born six months later, which is Febuary! I’m fully convince that Jesus is a Pisces!
