Jesus The Nazarite And King of the Jews.
“The Cross”
Chapter One

I am going to start out showing you in Holy Scripture why the LORD God created the Feasts, and how they were initiated and how they point us to Jesus Christ. It is my heartfelt prayer that through the reading of this Book, that everyone who reads it, will pray and ask the LORD to open their eyes to see, ears to hear, and to give them wisdom, each time they open this Book. I have tried to put as much scripture as possible within the pages, but I still suggest you open your own Bible and make sure each verse of scripture lines up. Why? I believe it is very important to make sure each person who listens or reads another’s book or sermon, will always follow with their Bible’s open, in order to not be deceived and to have that, “you know that you know” in your spirit. Also, I would like to note, that I will be using the Gregorian calendar, the Sacred Calendar of God compared to the Civil Jewish calendar. I have enclosed the Sacred Calendar/Civil calendar for you to compare, it will also be useful as a visual when you are doing your own studies.
So, without further ado let’s dig in and allow the LORD to open His Glorious Word to us.

Let’s go to Colossians:
Colossians 2:16-17
16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

Apostle Paul tells us that the holyday, new moon, and the sabbath days are a shadow of things to come, Jesus Christ being the embodiment of them. They are a picture of Jesus Christ and as we go through this you will see and understand what He fulfilled at His first appearing. The holydays Apostle Paul is talking about has NOTHING to do with, Palm Sunday, Good Friday, Easter or Christmas.

Genesis 1:14-19
14And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 15And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 17And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. 19And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

Here we read that God created the sun, moon, and stars on the fourth day and He created them not only to divide the day and night, but for SIGNS AND SEASONS.

This is from the Translation called God’s Word and this is how it is rendered for verse 14:
Then God said, “Let there be lights in the sky to separate the day from the night. They will be signs and will mark religious festivals, days, and years.

As you read you can understand that God uses the Heavenly bodies to mark HIS FEASTS/HOLY DAYS as well as for signs. God is the One that created these Feast’s, NOT the Jews, these are the LORD’S FEASTS. As Apostle Paul stated they were given as a shadow of the LORD Jesus Christ who is the fulfillment of them. He is the One that placed them in the time frame they are in for a specific purpose always pointing to Jesus Christ.

Also, I want you to remember verse 19, this is the way God describes a day as well as the Jews. The new day begins at sunset to sunset, instead of sunrise to sunrise like the rest of the world. This is very important to understand. This is not the only place it is written but this is the first mention of it.

19And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

God knew there would be many false gods, idols, prophets, and Messiahs that would try and deceive people. Therefore, He created the Feasts and told us very clearly in His Word that we would know the True Messiah by His Feasts because He alone will fulfill them, starting at His birth. God does not want anyone deceived, He has placed everything that we need in His Word to understand and to search out. Many do not understand why did God hide it in His Word rather than to tell us plainly. There are a couple of reasons, one Satan only knows what God allows him to know, and two, if we truly love God we will search, study, and rightly divide the Word of Truth in order to find the hidden Truths He placed throughout His Word. But so many are happy just to listen to a man and adhere to man’s traditions without giving it a second thought. By doing this, open yourself to deception because if you loved the Truth you would have searched things out. Look at the chart below it tells us of the appointed feasts and holydays of God, as well as where to find them.
Now we are going to look at when Jesus was born. Are there clues in His Word that will reveal this to us? You may be wondering why does the date of His birth matter because we are studying the death, burial, and resurrection? I tell you, it matters greatly. Let’s continue.

Jesus’ Birth 1 Tishri 3 B.C./September 11 Feast of Trumpets/Rosh HaShannah “Head of the New Year”. I am using the Sacred Calendar of God, Tishri is the 7th month.
In the Talmud they have added to the Written Word of God and said the “Sages” said that Rosh HaShanah can only be on Mon. Tues. Thurs. and Shabbat (Sat.) Why would they remove Wed.? They also say it takes two days to observe it in order to see the new moon, but it is not God’s Law but man’s tradition.

Luke 4:14-15
14And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about. 15And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all.
Jesus in Luke also stands up and reads a passage out of Isaiah that is read at the beginning of the Jubilee year!

Luke 4:16-21
16And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. 17And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 18The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 20And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

How do we know it was a Jubilee year, I will explain in detail later.

Triumphant entry
10th Nisan 31 A.D./April 21 the examination of the Lamb sacrifice. Jesus was chosen by the people to be perfect by laying palm branches, garments and singing Hosanna to Him.

Exodus 12:3-6
3Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house: 4And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb. 5Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats: 6And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.

Mark 11:8-11
8And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and strawed them in the way. 9And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord: 10Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest. 11And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had looked round about upon all things, and now the eventide was come, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve.

Mark 11:12
12And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:

Mark 11:15-19
15And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;16And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple. 17And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves. 18And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine. 19And when even was come, he went out of the city.

The Crucifixion:
14th Nisan 31 A,D./ April 25 Wednesday Passover
Luke 23:44-46
44And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. 45And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. 46And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.

The 9th hour was 3 p.m. They had less than 3 hours to get permission to get the body down, wrap Him up, and put Him in the tomb before sundown and the high Sabbath began/1st day of Unleavened Bread. Jesus is the Bread of life.

Burial:
Luke 20:50-56
50And, behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counseller; and he was a good man, and a just: 51(The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) he was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God. 52This man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus.53And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid. 54And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on. 55And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his body was laid. 56And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.
Resurrection:
17th Nisan 31 A.D./April 28th Saturday/Sabbath This is the 1st of the 7 weekly day Sabbaths until Pentecost.
Now that I have given you the dates and the Feasts Days let’s tie it all together showing you the evidence of these things. Jack Finegan Wrote a Book called, “Handbook of Biblical of Chronology”. In his book he shows that 9 ancient authorities all agree that Jesus was born in 3 B.C.

Those men are:
Irenaeus
Clement of Alexandria
Tertullian
Africanus
Hippolytus of Rome
Hippolytus of Thebes
Origen
Euesbius
Epiphanius
If you are anything like me that is pretty cool about these 9 witness’ but more evidence would be great.
So, in my research I have discovered there are also astronomical evidence showing the birth of Jesus. Josephus mentions the death of Herod shortly before the Passover. We know Herod died after Jesus was born and went to Egypt. Josephus also mentioned that shortly after the Feast of Unleavened Bread which the Jews refer to as Passover, there was a sign in the Heavens. If you do not know who Josephus is, he is a Jewish Historian that wrote, “Antiquities of the Jews”, and “War of the Jews”.
During the years of 7 B.C. and 1 B.C. there were four lunar eclipses.
Total eclipse March 23, 5 B.C. – 29 days between eclipse and Passover Total eclipse September 15, 5 B.C. – 7 months between eclipse and Passover
Partial eclipse March 13, 4 B.C. – 29 days between eclipse and Passover
Total eclipse January 10, 1 B.C. – 12 and half weeks between eclipse and Passover
The 1 B.C. total lunar eclipse fits the 3 B.C. birth year of Jesus that corresponds with the 8 men from ancient authority. But it does not stop there, lets dig deeper.
Luke 2:1-7
1And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. 2(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) 3And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. 4And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)5To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. 6And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. 7And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

This tax was also a census that was taken and a registration as well as an oath taken according to Josephus in the, “Antiquities of the Jews”. What was this all about? This was when the whole Nation of Israel took an oath to be faithful to Caesar, all except 6,000 Pharisees who refused to do it. The registering of the people and the swearing of the oath had to take place before giving the title to Augustus, which was Feb. 5, 2 B.C. So, this had to happen when all the people were together at once in Jerusalem area which would have been in 3 B.C at the time of taxing. The timing of this taxing and registration lines up with an astrological sign in the Heavens in the years 3/2 B.C. in which I will explain further on.
Luke 2:1-7
1And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. 2(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) 3And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. 4And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)5To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. 6And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. 7And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
Matthew 2:1-12
1Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, 2Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. 3When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. 4And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born. 5And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet, 6And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel. 7Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, inquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.8And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also. 9When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. 10When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. 11And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.12And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.

Let’s discuss these wise men that came from the east. They had to have been highly intelligent in a few areas. In astronomy, mathematics, as well as in the Torah. These men I do not believe were of Jewish but again I do not know for sure. Because when the Jews returned from Babylon some stayed behind. Which Babylon is east of Jerusalem. Also, they were very interested and excited to see the King of the Jews, faithful enough to take a very long journey and give wonderful gifts.
Prophecy of a King being born in Israel:
In earlier translations it calls these men magi’s which Daniel was called that as well. I believe these men were probably more in number than 3 as they are portrayed in the Christmas story. I also believe they were from the Mesopotamia area, specifically Babylon but not limited to that area. One reason is because of Daniel, he had many years prior, written much about the 70 weeks determined on Israel, as well as pinpointed a precise year the 69 weeks would end and the 70th week would begin. Also being familiar with the Prophecies of the Messiah’s birth they would know when His ministry would begin according to the Torah, He would be 30 years old, which is the end of the 69th week. Daniel was also well read in the Torah, the Prophets that were already written and the Psalms. He undoubtfully spoke of the things he knew to others, as well as write them down. Being such a favored man in Babylon and loved by all kings and most people, his writings would have been coveted by many magi throughout the years and honored.
Numbers 24:15-19
15And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said: 16He hath said, which heard the words of God, and knew the knowledge of the most High, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open: 17 I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth. 18And Edom shall be a possession, Seir also shall be a possession for his enemies; and Israel shall do valiantly. 19Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion, and shall destroy him that remaineth of the city.
Daniel’s prophecy they would have known and would have the year the King of the Jews was going to be born, but not the actual day or month, just the year. So, it is plausible they began to scan the skies for the Star that should shine, the Star they called “His Star”.
Daniel 9:24-26
24Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. 25Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. 26And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
“Seventy weeks” means seventy years.
Just as we would say three dozen equals 36, or seven decades equals 70 years, the Jews understood the word “weeks” to mean “seven.” So in Daniel 9:24 “seventy weeks” means seventy “sevens” or 70 x 7 = 490 years.
In the first year of king Cyrus’ reign he wrote decree to allow the Jews to go home and restore and rebuild Jerusalem. This decree was not the countdown though, but it was a very important decree, because king Cyrus had it written, and once a law is written it cannot be changed. After Cyrus died after 7 years of reigning, his son took over for 7.5 years, then an imposter usurped the throne for about 8 months. Many believe he was also Cyrus’ other son, but I cannot find a definite on that. It was this king that stopped the building of the Temple, which was breaking the Persian law. After Cyrus had sent out the decree, 16 years later all that was done concerning the rebuilding was a foundation and an alter was built. All because of opposition by their enemies and because the imposter king stopped them for a while as well. Then 2 years into the reign of Darius “The Great” Artaxerxes, king of Persia, not only began the rebuilding, but gave many things to the Jews to help, in 457 BC (Nehemiah 2:5) this was the decree of Cyrus enforced. With that starting date, and the restoration of the Temple and Jerusalem was 49 years the first set of 7 weeks. After that began the countdown of the 62 weeks 434 years, totaling 483 years to the Messiah which the angel Gabriel prophesied takes us to the date of Jesus’ baptism in 27 A.D. Thus, beginning the last week of seven, i.e. 7 years, Jesus’ ministry, being “cut off” in the middle of the week, 3 ½ years, extending another 3 ½ years to the stoning of Stephen when the Gospel was now given to the Gentiles after the Jews totally rejected it. Total of 490 years completed which was the 70 weeks determined upon Israel. Again, I will be dealing with this topic in greater detail later.
Then there is the prophecy in Micah, the Magi could have known about as well.
Micah 5:2
2But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.
Many will possibly be offended at the next revelation of this, because it involves the stars, and they will say this is astrology and is witchcraft which is forbidden. I must remind those people this is in no way astrology which is a perversion that Satan has used to get those who want to understand, but won’t dig deeper thinking it forbidden by God. Remember in the beginning I quoted Genesis about how God uses the sun, moon, and stars for SIGNS as well as dividing day and night and seasons? God spoke to Balaam and told us there would be a SIGN in the heavens. Let’s also not forget that God not only created the stars, but He named them, and He also named the constellations in the Heavens which you can see a few of them named in Job. Do not allow Satan to pervert the Truth so much that you become blinded because of fear of studying.
This prophecy God gave to Balaam reveals there will be a STAR coming out of Jacob and a SCEPTER/KING shall rise out of Israel. Now go back to the blessing that Jacob gave to Judah.
Genesis 49:8-10
8Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee. 9Judah is a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up? 10The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.

Just a little something to think on, how long has it been since a king from the line of Judah has reigned in Israel? Shiloh has already come and is now King of kings and LORD of lord, His name is Jesus!
Now what exactly did these magi see in the sky? Nowhere in history, Jewish writing or Chinese writing speak of this “star” anywhere that I can find and trust me I have searched for hours! Which I found other thoughts by people and some make sense, but no one else seen this “Star”. Not even king Herod or the Sanhedrin, because king Herod inquired of the magi to tell him EXACTLY when did they see the Star? Then nowhere, does it state they followed the Star to Jerusalem either. If the Star was still in the sky they would not have went to Jerusalem, but where the LORD was at which was Galilee. So, the question remains what is this “Star” they called “HIS STAR”?
Note also the STAR in Numbers is capitalized as well, stars are not normally capitalized. So, I looked up in Hebrew this is what I got.
17 I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.

Jesus in Revelation used stars as metaphors for angels as well.
Revelation 1:16
16And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.

Explained here:
Revelation 1:20
20The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

Revelation 12:3-4
3And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
Explained here:
Revelation 12:7-9
7And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Revelation 9:1
1And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
Needs no explanation.
Other examples:
Daniel 8:9-10
9And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land. 10And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them.
Judges 5:20
They fought from heaven; the stars in their courses fought against Sisera.
In the next few verses, you see where the Angel of the LORD can make Himself known to one person or animal and not to someone standing beside them. As well as prove to you THE Angel of the LORD IS THE LORD Jesus Himself, you can say He is the pre-incarnate of Jesus in the Old Testament. After Jesus was born, note you don’t hear of or see THE Angel of the LORD anymore, except, the night of His birth the shepherds saw Him, the wise men seen Him as the BRIGHTEST STAR, and appeared again to lead them to the house after that, you will hear of an angel but not THE Angel. The reason we see THE Angel of the LORD as the pre-incarnate Jesus is because He was SEEN, and allowed people to worship Him as well spoke in the first person as God, and it could not have been God the Father because NO ONE HAS SEEN GOD THE Father. The Godhead is made up of, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and nowhere is there a reference of the Holy Spirit taking on human form.
Numbers 22:22-35
The Angel and Balaam’s Donkey
22And God’s anger was kindled because he went: and the angel of the LORD stood in the way for an adversary against him. Now he was riding upon his ass, and his two servants were with him. 23And the ass saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and the ass turned aside out of the way, and went into the field: and Balaam smote the ass, to turn her into the way. 24But the angel of the LORD stood in a path of the vineyards, a wall being on this side, and a wall on that side. 25And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she thrust herself unto the wall, and crushed Balaam’s foot against the wall: and he smote her again. 26And the angel of the LORD went further, and stood in a narrow place, where was no way to turn either to the right hand or to the left. 27And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she fell down under Balaam: and Balaam’s anger was kindled, and he smote the ass with a staff. 28And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times? 29And Balaam said unto the ass, Because thou hast mocked me: I would there were a sword in mine hand, for now would I kill thee. 30And the ass said unto Balaam, Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day? was I ever wont to do so unto thee? And he said, Nay. 31Then the LORD opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face. 32And the angel of the LORD said unto him, Wherefore hast thou smitten thine ass these three times? behold, I went out to withstand thee, because thy way is perverse before me: 33And the ass saw me, and turned from me these three times: unless she had turned from me, surely now also I had slain thee, and saved her alive. 34And Balaam said unto the angel of the LORD, I have sinned; for I knew not that thou stoodest in the way against me: now therefore, if it displease thee, I will get me back again. 35And the angel of the LORD said unto Balaam, Go with the men: but only the word that I shall speak unto thee, that thou shalt speak. So Balaam went with the princes of Balak.
We see here THE Angel of the LORD allowed Balaam to bow and worship, also He tells Balaam to only speak words that He gives him.
Exodus 3:1-6
1Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb. 2And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. 3And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. 4And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I. 5And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground. 6Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.
Here THE Angel of the LORD tells Moses He is God! Jesus is God!
Genesis 22:11-12
11And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I. 12And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.
Again, here THE Angel of the LORD refers to Himself as God.
So in conclusion of showing you how stars are a metaphor as angels, how THE Angel of the LORD can be in the Presence of more than one and be seen by only one, and how THE Angel of the LORD is God The Son pre-incarnate in the Old Testament, and the word angel means messenger!
So, I believe without doubt the Star they seen and referred to as “HIS STAR” was literally THE ANGEL OF THE LORD passing through the other astronomical sign taking place in the Heavens at this very moment! The birth of the Kingly Son in the Heavens told the story of Christ’s birth! Heralding the message to the magi who was waiting for this sign.
Turn to the Book of Revelation:
Revelation 1:4
4John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;
Revelation 1:8
8I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
Revelation 1:19
19Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;
In the very 1st Chapter Jesus makes sure we understand that:
1 He is eternal
2 He was here on earth
3 He is coming back.
He also wants us to know that John is writing about things he has seen, things which are, and things hereafter which is the prophecy part.
Revelation 12:1-5
The Woman and the Dragon
1And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: 2And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. 3And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. 5And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
Micah 4:10
10Be in pain, and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail: for now shalt thou go forth out of the city, and thou shalt dwell in the field, and thou shalt go even to Babylon; there shalt thou be delivered; there the LORD shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies.
Micah 5:2-3
2But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting. 3Therefore will he give them up, until the time that she which travaileth hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel.
Song of Solomon 6:10
Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners?
God’s Word Translation gives a clearer picture:
GOD’S WORD® Translation Solomon 6:10
Who is this young woman? She looks like the dawn. She is beautiful like the moon, pure like the sun, awe-inspiring like those heavenly bodies.
We see in these verses that this is obviously speaking of Christ’s birth, the debate is with “who” is the woman? I do not believe it is Mary, but I am in the belief it is the “daughter of Zion” that is the believing Israel.
Jesus Christ was born on Tishri 1, 3 B.C.-September 11, 3 B.C. between 6:18 p.m. and 7:39 p.m. on the first day of the Feast of Trumpets! Since this is a feast day and no one saw the “Star” other than the Magi in the East I truly believe “His Star” was exactly that, “THE Angel of the LORD” at the precise time of His birth. In the technological age we live in, we are able to go back in time so to speak and see how the planets, stars, and constellation were aligned up, there is a program you can download for free named, “Stellarium” and you can check this out for yourself it is pretty cool.
The Revelation 12 sign was recorded for us! The constellation Virgo was up in the Heavens clothed in the Sun, Moon at her feet, Leo the Lion above her head with 12 stars around her head, Jupiter in conjunction with Regulus in Leo, as the Dragon constellation is at her feet. The constellation Virgo is the Virgin/woman, the planet Jupiter represents the King planet, Regulus represents the King Star, Leo represents the Tribe of Judah, the Dragon represents Satan, Sun represents Father, and Moon represents mother. The twelve stars above her head: “Professor Thorley has shown that there are exactly twelve stars surrounding the head of Virgo as we see them from earth. And indeed, there are. If one will look at Norton’s Star Atlas, twelve visible stars will be seen around Virgo’s head. They are (according to astronomical terminology): (1) Pi, (2) Nu, (3) Beta (near the ecliptic), (4) Sigma, (5) Chi, (6) Iota — these six stars form the southern hemisphere around the head of Virgo. Then there are (7) Theta, (8) Star 60, (9) Delta, (10) Star 93, (11) Beta (the 2nd magnitude star) and (12) Omicron — these last six form the northern hemisphere around the head of Virgo. All these stars are visible and could have been witnessed by observers on earth.”
The Mazzeroth known to us as the Zodiacs were never intended to be used for Astrology to predict horoscopes, that is a perversion of God’s creation that Satan began. They were created for signs to show and speak of Jesus Christ, and their voices are heard world-wide the Word of God/Gospel written in the stars.
With the Sun and the Moon in the constellation of Virgo it gives us the exact day that Jesus Christ was born! This only happened ONCE and that day was 1st Tishri 3 B.C. and was visible in Israel at twilight the beginning of the new day, which was Feast of Trumpets! Between 6:18 p.m. and 7:39 p.m. Jesus was born! The Feast of Trumpets is a very exciting time, but a little bit of history. Israel blows a trumpet on the 1st of every month that are feasts months and there are 7 feast months, the 1st of Tishri is the 7th month, which is when the LAST TRUMP is blown as well as a trump blown to begin the Civil New Year as well. This feast day was also customary that the final ceremony in the coronation of kings was the blowing of trumpets.
For Solomon, “Blow ye the trumpet, and say, ‘God save king Solomon’” (1 Kings 1:34).
For Jehu, “And [they] blew with trumpets, saying, ‘Jehu is king’” (2 Kings 9:13).
At the enthronement of Jehoash, “The people of the land rejoiced, and blew with trumpets” (2 Kings 11:11).
There are so many other things that happened on this day which are significant, I cannot post them all as this study is focused on Jesus alone and ultimately His death, burial, and resurrection, but the LORD lead me to go to the “beginning, His birth, to get to the resurrection”. In order to get all the dates correct, we have to look at the evidence through the Word of God, as well as historical evidence from ancient and modern records.
This was also the date for the registration and taxation of the people, and everyone had to return to their nativity, Joseph and Mary had to go to Bethlehem, fulfilling the prophecy of Jesus birth place!
This is not a coincidence that Our KING OF kings was born on this day!
This was foreordained on day 4 when God created the sun, moon, and stars all the Heavenly Host for signs and seasons pointing to Jesus Christ!
One final note about the Revelation sign, there are those who have tried to say that on Sept. 23, 2017 that the exact same sign in the stars. That is not true. What I mean is, it had a similar appearance but not all things were as it was on 1st Tishri 3 B.C. God does not contradict Himself in anyway whatsoever and if this sign in Revelation was supposed to be a repeated future event it would have been identical and it was not. Satan counterfeits the things of the LORD, but he cannot copy exactly, just making it appear to be so.

First, for some reason NASA blocked out a space that could not be seen where the constellation Draco/Red Dragon should have been, giving the appearance they were hiding it from us. Using the Stellarium app. today Draco you see was not even close to Virgo that day. Then looking at it closer you see the Sun is over her shoulder which it should have been between her shoulder and torso. Then you see Jupiter in what looks like her womb which it should have been in conjunction with Regulus in Leo. The 12 stars were not above her head but in the constellation Leo, which was above her head, where LEO is supposed to be. The Stars that made up the crown represented the 12 tribes of Israel were not all stars on Sept. 23, 2017 but was made up of planets as well, that was not so on 1st Tishri 3 B.C.
In 2017 I really believed it was identical, but as the LORD lead me into this study, He alone opened my eyes and it is His desire to open yours too, research these things out, study be informed!
Now one last note on the birth:
These scriptures below show you that when the magi went to find Jesus, the Star reappeared to guide them they did not go to Bethlehem but to Galilee to Joseph’s city Nazareth that is why the Star returned to guide them. They did not see Jesus as an infant but when He was at least 1 years old, if not 2. King Herod asked for the exact time the Star appeared, and then afterwards demanded the death of all children 2 years and under.
Matthew 2:7-12
7Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, inquired of them diligently what time the star appeared. 8And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also. 9When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. 10When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. 11And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.12And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.

Matthew 2:16-18
16Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men. 17Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, 18In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

Luke 2:4-5
4And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)5To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
Luke 2:22-23
22And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord; 23(As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;)
Luke 2:39-40
39And when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazareth. 40And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.
Herod did not know that Jesus did not live in Bethlehem, so he ordered the death of ALL children 2 years old and under. But as you read after Joseph and Mary completed all that was required, they returned home. Many do not realize not only did they complete the things needed to be done after birth, like circumcision the 8th day, dedication, purification of Mary, but also the Day of Atonement had to be observed during this time, as well as the Feast of Tabernacles where all males are to go to Jerusalem.
I do hope before continuing to the next chapter that you will pray about the things you have just read and search these things out to get it deep within you.
Do not believe the lies of the enemy that have been told for over 1,000 years now. Jesus Christ was not born on December 25th the day we call Christmas, that is the day pagans worship a false god named Tammuz.
Let me leave this verse with you as we close with part one of this study.
Proverbs 25:2
It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.
