Feast of Tabernacles was from 23-30 September 2018.
“….. and the Word became flesh, and did tabernacle among us, and we beheld his glory, glory as of an only begotten of a father, full of grace and truth,” John 1:1.
Many, many more people, Christians, have come to understand that the Birth of Jesus Christ did not occur as traditionally believed on December 25th. One of those days is thought as October 1st…. That was three days ago….
It is also called the 8th day ..(after the 7 of the Feast of Tabernacles) and on the 8th day, God ordained a holy, solemn convocation, and ordered no work … rest …Jesus is our Eternal Rest.
The number 8 in the Bible represents a new beginning, meaning a new order or creation, and man’s true ‘born again’ event when he is resurrected from the dead into eternal life. So on the 8th Day, October 1st, thought by some to be the birthday of Jesus … we reflect.
The 8th day began 6 p.m. on the 30th. The 1st was the day of salvation.
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved!
He was born of a virgin … Isaiah 7:14 reads, “Therefore the LORD Himself will give you a sign: the virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel” – which means, ‘God with you’. Jesus was, is God.
He was born to live … John 1:4“In him was life, and the life was the light of men.”
He was born to die … Hebrews 2:9 “That He by the grace of God should taste death for every man …”
He was born a son … Matthew 1:21“And she will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for it is He who will save His people from their sins.”
He was born our bearer… 2 Corinthians 5:21“For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”
1 Peter 2:24-25“and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed. For you were continually straying like sheep, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your soul.”
He was born to provide forgiveness … In him, Ephesians 1:7, we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace
He was born to be raised … 1 Peter 1:3-4. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you.”
Born to enter heaven … It was necessary, then, for the copies of the heavenly things to be purified with these sacrifices, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.
For Christ did not enter a man-made sanctuary that was only a copy of the true one; he entered heaven itself, now to appear for us in God’s presence” (Hebrews 9:23-24)
Hebrews 9:12“Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.”
Born to please Father, born to make peace between God and man … Colossians 1:19-20. “For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell; and, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in.”
Born to love … “Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma” Ephesians 5:2.
Born to be believed, born to be received … 1 John 1:12-13 “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.”
Born to grant eternal life … John 11:25 “Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die.”
Do you believe this?
“Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.
Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call,” Acts 2:36-39.
Repentance is a gift from God to us all as is the Holy Spirit. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.
Repentance means to change our thinking about God specifically regarding Jesus who is the Christ.
And having done so … empowered by His Spirit … The Holy Ghost.
Ask to walk in His way … turning from ones own way … to walk by his grace, his helping means, in His ways and plans for you.
