Jesus Christ's and Isaac's Birthday
4 B.C. - There is a lot of confusion about Christ's birthday. Some say that he was born in the dead of the Winter at Christmas. Others believe that he was born in the Fall. The book of Jubilees gives us important evidence leading to the conclusion that he was born on Pentecost.
The first day of the seventh month is a Bible Holiday. It is the Feast of Trumpets. The announcement was made in the middle of the sixth month and in the seventh month conception had taken place. (Those angels were pretty good doctors weren't they? Today's doctors can not detect pregnancy this early.
Nine months later would be the third Hebrew Calendar month of the next year. In our present day Gregorian Calendar count from the Fall Equinox. The Fall Equinox is the first day of the seventh Hebrew Solar Calendar month and also the Feast of Trumpets.
* Both were announced before conception.
God obviously is very date conscious. He just does not, as the record shows, appear, make covenants, etc. on just any old day. The conclusion is that both Isaac and Jesus Christ were conceived on Trumpets and born on Pentecost, the same is the birthday of the New Testament Church.
Birthday of the New Testament Church
29 A.D. - The events of Pentecost, 29 A.D. are recorded in Acts 2:1 thru Acts 4:3:
1. The infilling Of The Holy Ghost Acts 2:1-13
On Pentecost it became a tradition to baptize new convents in special gleaming "white garments". After many years Pentecost came to be known as White-Sunday or Whitsunday, the book of Revelation was the source of the symbolism.
During the baptism ceremony individuals enter into a 'a new covenant' with Jesus Christ. What better day to have baptisms than on Pentecost, the day most Bible covenants were made in the past. Perhaps the very day that the New Covenant will be made on a national scale?
Those who were not observing Pentecost at that time missed out of the receiving of the Holy Spirit in tongues of fire.
The devil is always busy
One person said that he was baptized three times.
1st, the right way for the wrong reason.
2nd, the wrong way for the right reason.
3rd, the right way for the right reason.
Now he in attending a different church and the minister says all his past baptisms are flawed.
Not an unusual situation. In our confusing world many don't even remember how or why they were baptized.
What to do. While a person may be baptized at any time of year, we could have a Baptismal service at Pentecost for new and old.
Let anyone be rebaptized for whatever reason they feel comfortable with. Some may want to just make sure. Some may simply want to renew their covenant.
57 A.D. (About 27 years after 'the law was done away in Jesus')
