“Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.The Spirit and the bride say, 'Come.' And let the one who hears say, 'Come.' And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost."
Was Yeshua possibly born in a barn or a cave? Houses in the first century were constructed to accommodate their animals on the lower level of the home. By using the 1395 edition of Wycliffe's translation of the Greek manuscripts, and examining the Greek words used for inn, we are able to better understand what occurred on the night of Yeshua's birth.
The males of Israel were required to attend three of the Lord's feasts: Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles. Yeshua was sent to fulfill the feasts of the Lord. He died at Passover, later ascended and the Holy Spirit descended on Pentecost and this left Tabernacles unfulfilled. There is some historical evidence that Yeshua could have been born in the year 2BC, and Luke 2 captures the possibility of Yeshua having already been 12 years old by the time of Passover.
Imaginative stories of Yeshua being swaddled in the garments of priests are sweet and endearing; but are not factual, as is His being birthed at Migdal-Eder with the lambs at Passover. We will examine what the Mishnah and other sources say concerning livestock and the garments of the priests.
Though we live in a world of information trafficking, archeology, ancient sites, and unearthed ancient manuscripts that cause many historians to rethink history, with all these things at our disposal; no one knows with certainty the timing of Yeshua's birth, nor the exact location in Bethlehem. We will go over some of the history of Christmas and take a look at the proposal of Him being born at the Lord's feast of Passover.
I propose that at the great earthquake in Revelation 16:18 is the resurrection; following the patterns of resurrections at earthquakes. Paul states in I Thessalonians 4:13 to chapter 5:4, they are not ignorant of the season of the resurrection but that it is at the Day of the LORD.
Revelation 16, the dragon, the beast and false prophet gather the nations to attack Israel. This attack against Israel ushers in the return of Yeshua. Yeshua spoke to five of the seven churches: "I will come," but in Revelation 16:15 states: "I am coming." His coming delivers His wrath against the nations.
