Dies Natalis Solis Invicti (Christmas)
by Rav Sha'ul

 

It should be obvious to any student of The Bible or even any casual reader that “Christmas” was never mentioned by Yahusha, his disciples, or the Apostles or anywhere in The Bible at all.  It is commonly knowledge among scholars that the date of December 25th for Christmas was selected in order to correspond with the Roman festival of Dies Natalis Solis Invicti, or "Birthday of Sol Invictus" the Sun.  This should come as no surprise as “Christianity” as a whole, all its fundamental doctrines, and every “holiday” is founded in ancient Babylon’s worship of the Sun. The Philocalian calendar of 354 AD gives a festival of "Natalis Invicti" on 25 December curiously not soon after The Council of Nicaea. There is limited evidence that this festival was celebrated before the mid 4th century AD.  No evidence it was celebrated by anyone in The Bible.

Sun worship is overwhelmingly obvious in Christian History.  In the 5th century, Pope Leo I (the Great) spoke of how the celebration of Christ's birth (Jesus birth not Yahusha’s) coincided with the sun's position increasing in the sky in several sermons on the Feast of the Nativity. Here is an excerpt from his 26th sermon:

But this Nativity which is to be adored in heaven and on earth is suggested to us by no day more than this when, with the early light still shedding its rays on nature, there is borne in upon our senses the brightness of this wondrous mystery.

That sounds word for word what the Babylonian Queen Ishtar said! According to the 1967 New Catholic Encyclopedia, a standard library reference, in an article on Constantine the Great:

"Besides, the Sol Invictus had been adopted by the Christians in a Christian sense, as demonstrated in the Christ as Apollo-Helios in a mausoleum (c. 250) discovered beneath St. Peter's in the Vatican." Indeed "...from the beginning of the 3rd century "Sun of Justice" appears as a title of Christ".

A scribe annotated a manuscript of a work by Syrian bishop Jacob Bar-Salibi in the 12th century as follows:

"It was a custom of the Pagans to celebrate on the same 25 December the birthday of the Sun, at which they kindled lights in token of festivity. In these solemnities and revelries the Christians also took part. Accordingly when the doctors of the Church perceived that the Christians had a leaning to this festival, they took counsel and resolved that the true Nativity should be solemnised on that day.

What more evidence do we need?

 

When was Yahusha born?

Now that we have demonstrated the pagan festival roots of Christian “holidays” especially Christmas, let us explore exactly when the Messiah was actually born.  When we do we find that the Ordained Times/Feast Cycle outlined by YHVH proves to be true in telling His Plan of Salvation through The Messiah:

·       The Feast of Passover was a shadow of the Messiah’s sacrifice,

·       The Sabbath his resurrection,

·       The Feast of First Fruits his offering of those who rose from the grave on Passover when he was executed,

·       The Feast of Pentecost/Shavuot his sending of the Spirit of YHVH, writing the Law on our Hearts not abolishing it,

·       The Feast of Trumpets his return,

·       The Day of Atonement his liberating and atoning for creation,

·       The Feast of Sukkoth his birth and then the beginning of his kingdom on Earth for a 1,000 years. 

These “Appointed Times” were identified by the Apostle Paul as “shadows of things to come” concerning Yahusha the Messiah.  Or physical rehearsals of the actual future fulfillment of The Plan of YHVH through His Messiah Yahusha. There was no “ordained time” called Mo’edim in Hebrew for a feast during the month of December.  Not one.

The Messiah was born during the Feast of Sukkoth or Tabernacles.  The truth in The Bible and historical facts prove Yahusha was born during Sukkoth (beginning of Fall) not December.  The Christian Church is in complete darkness to every aspect of YHVH’s Plan of Salvation as the false religion has literally robbed those who follow it of vital truths found in His Ordained Times/Holy Days. 

If we were obedient to YHVH’s Law and kept His Feasts as commanded, we would never have been misled by the false messiah Hesus Horus Krishna aka Jesus H. Christ.  We would never have committed such abominations as Christmas, Good-Friday, Easter, and Sunday worship.  We would have recognized immediately that the “image” of Jesus H. Christ is The Trinity/Sunday/Easter/Pig and known right away it was an abomination to YHVH in name/deed/rituals.

Let’s look at the Biblical and Historical evidence surrounding the birth of the Messiah that prove that YHVH’s Feast Cycle was truly a “shadow” of the coming Messiah.

·       Shepherds do not "abide in the fields" in December with their sheep in Israel, not 2,000 years ago and not now. It is well known that shepherds stay in shelters starting in November, with the arrival of the rainy season.

·       If you know what the Star of Bethlehem is (Jupiter) then you know when the Nativity was. The Magi told Herod "the time the star appeared" and Herod killed infants two years and under in response. That means the Magi were tracking the "king's star" for two years, because Herod didn't stop from killing his own children and his favorite wife, per Josephus. In fact, Josephus says that Augustus Caesar himself remarked that he would rather be one of Herod's dogs than one of his children. So for Herod to go back TWO YEARS and kill any of his own children going back TWO YEARS is proof the Magi had been seeking the Messiah for TWO YEARS.  The only "star of kings" that Magi would have known was Jupiter. "Magi" refers to Zoroastrian priests from either Babylon or Persia (Iran or Iraq), both of which are EAST of Israel and both tracked a triple conjunction of Jupiter (the king's planet) and Saturn (the savior planet for the Jews) in Aries (the zodiac sign for Syria and Israel in their mythology). Zoroastrians had a myth that their version of Messiah, called "Saoshyant" in their scriptures, would be born "in the west, in a foreign land." When the triple conjunction, along with a comet and other things, all began in 7 BCE, they knew they had to grab the incense and go. Jupiter even went behind the sun and "died" - was invisible, for more than a year. It emerged triumphantly from behind the sun in mid 6 BCE and tracked west for 4 months, pausing over Bethlehem on or about Sept. in about 5 BCE.

·       As if that isn't compelling enough, remember Luke tells us Zechariah, John the Baptist's father, served 15 months in the Temple before Messiah was born. Luke gives us the name of the course: Abijah (Luke 1:5). Guess what? We know when Abijah served during this time, and when we add 15 months it comes again to Sept, 5 BCE.

·       Likewise we can date the first census of Qurinius as well, as Romans counted folks every 14 years and people in Egypt - like Joseph and Mary - were forced to return to their ANCESTRAL HOMES to pay the tax. This is verified in the Bible; it is not open to interpretation!

·       Luke and John synch on the same year for the beginning of Messiah's ministry. How do we know that? Forty-six years from the beginning of Herod's temple and the 15th year of Tiberius bring us to the same year. Co-regencies were counted as part of Roman rule, so Tiberius co-ruled with Augustus starting in 12 CE. Josephus says Herod began building the Temple in 19 BCE. Then Luke says Y'shua was "about 30" when he began his ministry. By this clock, he would be 30 years exactly and a few months.

·       There were no “rooms in the inn” actually tell us a lot as well.  One time a year during the Fall Feasts all of Israel had to travel to Jerusalem to make sacrifices on The Day of Atonement.  Bethlehem is a “suburb” of Jerusalem and the city of Jerusalem would fill up with travelers from across the land.  People would then stay in the surrounding town if there was room.  This was what is recorded in the Gospels.  That is “why” Joseph and Mary were in Bethlehem to begin with and “why” there was no room in the Inn.  The Roman census was conducted over a period of 3-5 years, not all on one day.  So Jews came and went through Jerusalem to pay taxes over a period of 3-5 years, there was never 1 single day when all the Jews gathered to pay taxes.

·       The “manger” scene is also a telling piece of evidence.  The Feast of Tabernacles or “Sukkoth” follows The Day of Atonement.  During this time, all of Israel after visiting the Temple would pitch their “Sukkot” or “tent” and celebrate the week long festival.  When Joseph and Mary could not find “room in the inn”, they stayed in their Sukkot they had brought with them.  It was not a “manger” with animals it was their Sukkot and their own animals traveling with them.  But again, our lack of knowledge concerning the Hebrew Roots of the True Faith is severely lacking so we are easily led astray.

Recently to High Priest of Dagon (the Pope) even admitted their entire pagan calendar is off due to the real birth date of the Messiah being years prior to what they teach: Source: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2012/11/pope-says-christian-calendar-based-on-miscalculation/

Pope Says Christian Calendar Based on Miscalculation

Jesus was born earlier than previously believed, meaning the Christian calendar based on the year of his birth is off by several years, the Pope argues in his new book.

The book, “Jesus of Nazareth: The Infancy Narratives,” is on sale now around the world with an initial printing of 1 million copies. In it, the head of the Catholic Church asserts that the Christian calendar is based on a miscalculation because Jesus was born sometime between 7 B.C. and 2 B.C., the Telegraph reported.

“The calculation of the beginning of our calendar – based on the birth of Jesus – was made by Dionysius Exiguus, who made a mistake in his calculations by several years,” Pope Benedict XVI writes. “The actual date of Jesus’ birth was several years before.”

This is a simple introduction to when the Messiah was actually born.  There are much more detailed studies proving he was born during Sukkoth.  I suggest everyone who is interested do their own independent study.  I recommend http://www.betemunah.org/birth.html.
