Was Jesus Born on December 25?

Updated on April 15, 2017

Is this Jesus or the Roman God Dionysius?

This is the traditional posture of the Roman God Dionysius. However, this is presented as Jesus. Why would Jesus hold his hand like that? A: Because it's Dionysius, a demonic substitution.

Big Events Coincide with Covenant Holy Days

Times are very important to God. He gives us many times and timelines in Daniel, in Revelation and elsewhere. We are told that the covenant celebrations "foreshadow" events that are to come. God does not mince words. He states exactly what He means. If Gods says an event follows another in 1, 260 days, then God means exactly 1,260 days. I agree that 1 day is a thousand years and a thousand years is like a day. However, the number remains 1,260, not 1,261, not 1,259 and not even 1,260.5 days.

Jesus said, "Let your yes be yes and your no be no." Say exactly what you mean. God does things at exactly the time He planned.

So, if God tells us, as the Bible recorded and we can read today, that Jesus will return on the "third day" and also that Jesus will return on the "seventh day", then we know that this is when Jesus will return. The third day refers to the beginning of the third century after the birth of Jesus. The seventh day refers to the beginning of the seventh century after the creation of the world.

Following Bible precedent, we can expect Jesus will return on the anniversary of His first arrival. This is why we should understand Jesus' true birth time.

The Hebrews left Egypt 430 years TO THE DAY. That makes me think: The covenant Holy Days foreshadow future events in the interaction of God with man. So, when is Jesus returning?

If Jesus returns exactly on the date of his birth, Jesus, the Passover Lamb of God, died exactly on the anniversary of Passover. Jesus' death and his Second Coming fill important places in Bible prophecy.The sacrifice of Jesus for the sins of man holds highest importance. God foreshadowed Jesus in many ways. Each foreshadowing tells us information about the actual event of the crucifixion.

Time of the Harvest of the Church

The Roman census was taken after the annual harvest was brought in. This happens every year around late September. In Matthew, it says "Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two [women shall be] grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. (24:40-41, KJV)

At what time of the year are people both in the field and also grinding? This could be when the early crops have been harvested and later crops are still being harvested- in the midst of harvest season.

Note also that the taking up is referred to as a "harvest", the righteous people are referenced as that which is harvested: ripe wheat.

I am sure there is more to support that we may actually have been told the season of Jesus' Second Coming: Harvest Season.

But of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. (Mat 24:36). However, in the previous verses of chapter 24, Jesus lists several things that "must must come to pass." Read Matthew Chapter 24 to see how Jesus answers when a disciple asks, "What will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the world?" (24:3)

When do you Think Jesus was Born?

The Time of Jesus' Birth is Important

The point of the above observations is this: God performs major events on historically significant days.

Who changed the record of the birth of Jesus? Whoever altered the date of observance was not someone who wanted to honor the desires of Jesus and of God. First, Jesus gave us instructions to celebrate his death. He never made any special mention of his birth. Second, Jesus went to the cross on Passover, a holy covenant, annual, sabbath day. He rose again on the weekly day of rest, a regular sabbath day.

If Jesus will return on the "third day" and also on the "seventh day", these two coincide in just one place in time. The 3rd thousand-year period after the death of Jesus begins at the same time as the 7th thousand-year period from Creation. Just as God told Abraham 430 years, and the people left Egypt exactly 430 years and no days after their arrival, we can have an expectation Jesus will return exactly 2000 years after his death, the beginning of the 7th and 3rd days.

The 10 Virgins Knew the Bridegroom would Arrive

In the parable of the ten virgins and their lamp oil, something is popularly overlooked in Bible studies: the virgins knew the bridegroom would soon arrive! They went out in the evening, and he arrived at midnight. (Mat 25)

Is Christmas the Devil's Un-Holiday?

A concern I have pondered for a few years is this:

We know the devil attempts to duplicate God's work. Satan wanted the throne of God. Satan wanted the adulation and the prayers God received. Once he was thrown to earth like lightning, he planted tare to simulate the wheat. The devil wants to replace God with himself.

God declared His holy covenant days to mark special events in history, both the past and the future. Those events fall on the same exact day. God wanted us to observe His special days. In this way, we can understand what will happen and when it will happen.

Those who observe Satan's un-holidays carry two major burdens:

1. They don't have any real chance of understanding the hidden messages contained in the covenant holy days.

2. They risk believing Satan's future major events are from God.

Example: When the two witnesses in the book of Revelation are killed, scripture says all the people of the world send each other gifts. What day of the year does that happen? Answer: Christmas. Has Satan established a celebration day to mark and honor the murder of the Two Witnesses? When Christmas is celebrated, what is the spiritual effect?

I do not know the answers to the above questions. But, the word for "covenant" also means "a practice, a preparation." God told his people to practice, to prepare for events on those days. What is being prepared for and practiced on December 25th?

      That is a good question , and Jesus knew people would focus on that thought , but what he said was this,

      Ec 7:1 A good name is better than good oil, and the day of death is better than the day of birth.

      We surly know about his death and resurrection,

      Jesus death was about 3:00 noon Nisan 14

      According to the Jewish calander.

      He resurrected Nisan 16.

      We know this because he is the Son of the most High ! Jehovah !

      I have always heard that it could have been in early spring or late fall. I guess we will find out someday.

      Nevertheless, Praise The Name of Jesus.
