THIS DAY-Part One+

Christmas 2017

THIS DAY

Rosedale Baptist Church

Dr. Garry Jones Outline, Edited by Jim Zeigler

Luke 2:1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. Luke 2:2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) Luke 2:3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. Luke 2:4 And 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:) Luke 2:5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. Luke 2:6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. Luke 2:7 And 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. Luke 2:8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. Luke 2:9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. Luke 2:10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. Luke 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

THIS DAY… (Note…THE Day and THOSE Days)

This EXACT Phrase is Used 41x’s in The KJV

It is ALWAYS Used Regarding a SPECIFIC Day or Period of Time of NO Less than 24Hr in Length

FACT: It was NOT “Just Any” Day!

THIS Day = By PLAN and With PURPOSE

I.E., At an APPOINTED / SCHEDULED Time

Gal 4:4

But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law

FACT: We KNOW The Year, Month, Day, Hour, and to The Minute When Christ was Crucified.

The Day of Preparation

On The Eve of The Passover

13th Day of Nisan at The Ninth Hour

FACT: We KNOW The Year, Month, Day, Hour, and to The MOMENT When Christ Rose from The Grave.

At The End of The Sabbath

As It Began to Day to Dawn

Toward the 1st Day of The Week

After Three Days and 3 Nights

On The Third Day

At Sunset on The 16th / 17th Day of Nisan

Q. IF KNOW These Two Things are TRUE, Then, Why CAN’T We KNOW The Year, Month, Date, Hour and Maybe even to The Minute When Christ was Conceived and was Born?

Ans. We CAN: THIS Day

THE Days

In THOSE Days

THE PROOF: The SIGNS from Scripture

WHO: A Virgin Shall Conceive…Isaiah 7:14

WHERE: The Babe in “a” Manger / Swaddling Clothes…

WHEN: HIS STAR…Matthew 2:2 Luke 2:7

Scripture helps resolve the matter, by stating The Wise Men visited the “young child” in a “house” and NOT a Babe in a Manger (Matt 2:11).

Since We KNOW from Scripture that HIS Star disappeared with the Visit of the Wise Men

And, From Science, We Know His Star Began to Appear on Dec 25, 5 BC and Then Began to Disappear on Dec 25, 4 BC.

The Appearance of HIS Star Signaled The Wise Men to BEGIN their Journey to Come and Worship the King of The Jews.

Q. Is it possible that The Appearance of His Star was a SIGN that the Conception of Christ had taken place?

Before We Answer that Question, Consider…

Gen 1:14 “And 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.”

Q. If This is so, Then BOTH the Virgin Conception and the Visit of the Wise Men Took Place on Dec 25

But…ONE year apart from The Day!

SPECIAL NOTE: This was Able to Happen Because, It was a LEAP YEAR (Extra Month) on The Hebrew Calendar! (Adar II)

These Dates for The Appearance and The Disappearance of HIS star are Scientific FACT based on Astrological Star Charts.

HIS Star was a Conjunction of Jupiter, The King Planet, with The King Star, Regulus. and The Mother Planet, Venus.

This Conjunction BEGAN in The Constellation LEO, and its CLIMAX Occurred in The Constellation of VIRGO, The Virgin!

Conjunctions of Planets and Stars have long been Considered to Be The Appearance of a NEW Star.

A Conjunction is a Close Approach between Two or More Celestial Objects.

Technically speaking, a COMPLETE Conjunction occurs at the moment when two or more objects have the same celestial longitude and one or more is due north of the other(s).

The CLOSER the Objects Appear, the More Visually Impressive the Event and the More Significant Astrologically.

NOTE: Astrology = Science Astronomy = Worship

Q. How do we explain The Star Stopping, Turning, and Then The Disappearing of His Star upon their Arrival at Bethlehem?

Q. Could The Star have Stopped over Bethlehem?

The answer is…YES!

The Word "Stop" was used for what we now call The "Stationary Point."

The stars from night to night and month to month, as move Eastward, Then They Can Suddenly Appear to Exhibit a Backwards Turn.

That Turn is called a "Retrograde Loop."

His Star would have been in the Southern Sky, high above the Horizon. After it passed the Opposite point in the sky from the Sun, it appeared to Slow, Come to a FULL Stop, and Move Backward (Westward) through the Sky.

The Retrogressive Loop is an Optical Illusion caused by the Orbits Earth and the Planets and Stars that Form the Conjunction.

Q. HOW Did The Wise Men KNOW The WHEN, WHERE, and WHY of HIS Star?

Ans Because…They were Taught The Scriptures by Daniel

The OT Prophecy… NOTE: Capitalization = Star

Num 24:17 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.

Remember: Jacob was Re-Named = Israel

But, There’s MORE!

The Revelation Given to John…

Rev 12:1 And 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: Rev 12:2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

Now, Most Bible scholars agree that the Man Child is Jesus.

And, Most agree the Woman to be Mary.

And. Most agree that the Woman ALSO represents ISRAEL.

Please keep in mind that Astrology is NOT Astronomy, but rather The Almighty God Himself using the STARS to Show Us the Plan of Salvation.

Astrology = Science Astronomy = Worship

When We Consider The SCIENCE of Astronomy, it Helps Us to Have a Spiritual Understanding of HOW It All Happened!

Consider Some Additional Facts…

In the First Verse of Revelation Twelve, the Meaning of the Word "Wonder" in the original comes from Greek Root which refers to a "Sign.”

There is Only One Constellation that represents a Woman, and That is the Constellation Virgo, the Virgin.

This Constellation of a Virgin points to Mary, Being the Mother of Jesus.

The Sun as it appears to travel through the sky over the course of a Year passes through ALL of the Twelve Constellations.

It eventually Entered the "Mid-Body" of the Constellation of Virgo and thus "Clothing Her with The Sun."

This Type of Occurrence usually lasted for a period of 10 to 21 Days.

In the year 4 BC the Sun, was in Position to AGREE with the reference of The Woman with The Crown of 12 Stars and with the Moon under Her Feet about ready to give BIRTH to the Man Child, which was Caught Up into Heaven and who is to Rule with a Rod of Iron.

In 4 BC this Configuration occurred on ONE Day and ONE Day ONLY, which was on the 10th Tishri between Sunset and Moon- Set.

On THIS Day Sunset occurred at 6:18pm, and Moon-Set occurred at 7:39pm.

To tie this all together, the planet Jupiter was traveling against the backdrop of Stars to the East and reached its Highest Point in the Sky in This VERY Time-Frame.

Weeks later when the Wise Men arrived at Jerusalem and Later when They LEFT Jerusalem, They saw Jupiter TURNING and Going Before them, traveling South towards Bethlehem.

Jupiter in its Nightly Path would have "went before them, till it came and stood."

As they approached Bethlehem, The Jupiter Conjunction finally "stood over where the child lay."

Based on this, Jesus Christ was Born on the 10th of Tishri, 4 BC between 6:18 pm and 7:39 pm.

If you carry this Conclusion to its Completion, the timing of Mary’s Labor would have taken a TOTAL of 81 Minutes with Jesus Being Born at 7:39pm on the 10th of Tishri, which would have been… The Day of Atonement in 4 BC!

CONCLUSION:

Ps 19:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Ps 19:2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. Ps 19:3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse

Gal 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law

From Creation, Our Father Planned It All!

Gen 1:14 and Gen 3:15,16

THIS DAY-Part Two

Luke 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

Matt 2:1 Now 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, Matt 2:2 Saying, 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.

REVIEW…CONSIDER THESE PROPHECIES: OT and NT

Num 24:17 there shall come a Star out of Jacob

a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel,

NOTES: Star = Capitalized

Jacob = Re-Named Israel

NOTE: Sceptre = BRANCH = Capitalized

Zech 6:12 And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD:

Rev 12:1 there appeared a great wonder in heaven

a woman clothed with the sun,

and the moon under her feet,

upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

Rev 12:2 she being with child cried

travailing in birth,

pained to be delivered.

Rev 12:5 she brought forth a man child,

to rule all nations with a rod of iron:

her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

WONDER = Sign (In Heaven)

WOMAN: Clothed / Sun

Crown / 12 Stars

Being with Child Cried

Travailing in Birth

Pained to Be Delivered

MAN CHILD: Rule All Nations / Rod of Iron

Caught-Up to God / His Throne

HIS Star…

The Star of Bethlehem (HIS STAR) is the KEY that Unlocks the Door to Determining the Date of The Conception and The Birth of The Christ

The BIG Question:

WHAT was HIS Star?

Theories: A Comet Too Quick!

A Meteor Too Quick!

A Supernova…Burn-Out of a Sun Too Quick!

A Single Star Especially Created by God (Cp-Jonah)

A Conjunction…Celestial Alignment

NOTE: The First 3 are Common Occurrences

The 4th Would Take a MIRACLE!

Conjunctions are Common But, THIS One was Supernatural! (COMPLEX!)

Again, Today: THIS Day…SPECIFIC! and APPOINTED!

Q. 1st…WHAT Calendar Do We Use to “Set” The Date?

Hebrew or Gentile?

THE FULNESS OF TIME

Hebrew = Lunar

Each Month Consists of ONLY: 29 Days

12 Hours

44 Minutes

2.8 Seconds

The Hebrew Calendar is Respected for its Accuracy

The Years are Numbered by a Count-Up Method

Year One = Creation

Now = 5778

Gentile Calendar = Solar

Each Year Consists of 12 Months containing Varying Days per Month (30 / 31 /28)

Division: BC and AD (Now…BCE & CE)

Before Christ - Anno Domini Common Era

The Year of Our Lord

Decreed in 6th Century by The Pope to Determine the CORRECTED Date for EASTER

Each Empire has their OWN Calendar based on Human Events:

Babylonian – Egyptian – Greek – Romans

Gregorian / Julian

The Julian Calendar COMPILED at the Request of Julius Caesar, on January 1, 45 BC to CORRECT Mistakes and Mis-Calculations

Gregorian Calendar was Done at the Request of The Pope was Designed to CORRECT The Mistakes and The Mis-Calculations (0.0002%) Existing in The Julian Calendar

It Officially became The Calendar of The World effective in October 1582

Problems: FILLED / Mistakes and Mis-Calculations

NO Year “0”

4 “Missing” Years

Mistake of Josephus…Eclipse

NOTE: This Means the Difference Between The Lunar Calendar, and Our Solar Calendar is about … 10 Days and 21 Hours per year

Because there are 365¼ Days Per Year in The Solar Calendar every 4 Years an EXTRA Day is Added to The Month of February and This Reconciliation is known as a Leap Year

To Justify the Shortage in The Lunar Calendar periodically a Leap Month, ADAR II, is Added and that Makes-Up The Jewish Leap Year

FACT: ALL These Things Make Reconciliation Between Jewish and Gentile Calendars…

PROBLEMATIC!

FACT: The PROOF for The CORRECT Dates Lies in HIS Star and THIS Day…

There was a Conjunction of Jupiter (King Planet) and Venus (The Mother Planet) in The Constellation of Leo, (The Lion) which was later JOINED by The Star Regulus (The Prince).

And, after that, the Jupiter/Venus/Regulus Conjunction appears to make a Retrograde Turn, in The Constellation of Virgo (The Virgin)

It Then Appeared to Slow, Turn, and Stop over Bethlehem

OVER…The House where The Young Child Lay.

Consider Some Additional Facts…

In the First Verse of Revelation Twelve, the Meaning of the Word "Wonder" in the original Greek is from the Root Word for a "Sign.”

There is Only One Constellation that Represents a Woman, and That is the Constellation Virgo, (The Virgin)

The Constellation of Virgo (The Virgin) points Us to Mary, The Mother of Jesus. (NOT…The Mother of God)

THE Conjunction of HIS Star took place in the Year 4 BC

At The SAME Time…

The Sun appears to Travel through the Sky and, over the Course of a Year, as it passes through ALL the Twelve Constellations.

Eventually, it Reached The Constellation of Virgo and, Thus Appearing to Be "Clothing Her with The Sun."

This Event usually lasts for a period of 10 to 21 Days.

In the year 4 BC, The Sun, was in Position to AGREE with the Reference of The Woman and The Man Child in Rev Chp 12

To Tie All this together, the planet Jupiter was Traveling against the Back Drop of 12 Stars to the East.

Jupiter reached its Highest Point in the Sky at This VERY Time.

In 4 BC This FINAL Alignment of The Conjunction, The Sun, and The Moon occurred for ONE Day and ONE Day ONLY.

The Conjunction Entered the "Mid-Body" of The Constellation of Virgo (The Virgin). Refer…Snap Shot Handout

And, THIS DAY Took Place on the 10th Tishri EXACTLY Between the Times of Sun-Set and Moon- Set.

Remember…Morning Star Morning = Jew @ Sunset

On THIS DAY, Sun-set Occurred at 6:18pm, and Moon-Set occurred at 7:39pm.

SPECULATION / APPLICATION: (FOR ME = FACT!)

On THIS DAY, Jesus Christ was Born on the 10th of Tishri, in 4 BC (3756 Heb) between the Hours of 6:18 pm and 7:39 pm.

And, On THIS DAY, IF you carry this Conclusion to its Completion, the Timing of Mary’s Labor, could have taken a TOTAL of 81 Minutes with Jesus Being Born THIS DAY at 7:39pm on the 10th of Tishri, which would have been…

THE DAY of Atonement in 4 BC!

This Jupiter Conjunction Began its Heavenly Mission on December 25, 5BC (Christ’s Conception) and Concluded its Mission on December 25, 4BC (The Visit of The Wise Men).

(5 BC = Heb 3756 and 4 BC = Heb 3757)

CONCLUSION:

What Sayeth The Scriptures (Including Prophecies):

Remember…

Gen 1:14 let them be for SIGNS, and for seasons, and for days, and years.

The Prophecies: OT and NT

Ps 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God;

and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

Ps 19:2 Day unto day uttereth speech,

night unto night sheweth knowledge

Ps 19:3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

Rom 1:20 the invisible things of him from the creation of the world

are clearly seen,

being understood by the things that are made,

His eternal power and Godhead;

so that they are without excuse

Gal 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law

CLOSING QUESTIONS:

Q. Did ALL These Things Happen by Chance or Coincidence?

Q. Or Was These Things Done by Plan and with Purpose?

HIS Star – THIS Day

Q. Are ALL These Things Merely Conjecture?

Q. Do ALL This “REALLY” Matter?

Q. What’s The Difference?

ANS. IT’S YOUR CHOICE!

The Truth of God’s Word vs. Tradition of Men

THIS DAY-Part Three

Luke 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

Matt 2:1 Now 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, Matt 2:2 Saying, 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.

PREFACE: I Apologize for ALL The Facts! Overload!!

FACT: The PROOF for The CORRECT Dates Lies in HIS Star and THIS Day…

To Date…THE WHAT! Conception = Dec 25, 5 BC

Birth = Oct 4, 4 BC

To Date…THE WHY? Fullness of Time

Fulfilled Prophecy

Today…THE HOW?

Personal Testimony: Started Years Ago (Jonah/Easter)

Started Series…Months Ago

Here is Where The Rubber Meets The Road…

How Do I Share ALL These Things with The Lost?

K.I.S.S.

Keep It Super Simple!

Three SIMPLE Points:

#1 Keep The FOCUS on The Conception NOT The Birth

Dec 25th is The Date for The Conception of Christ

God gave The VIRGIN Conception as a Sign…Isa 7:14

Isa 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

The Jews Celebrate The Date a Child’s Conception

NOTE: The Use of The Word “BEGAT” (225x’s)

Bible Principle…Life Begins at Conception!

Christ’s Conception was a…Miracle!

#2 The Date for Christ’s Conception was “Set” When God Put The Sun, The Moon, and The Stars in Place…

Gen 1:14 And 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: Gen 1:15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

Matt 2:2 Saying, 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.

Num 24:17 there shall come a Star out of Jacob

a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel

NOTE: Star = Capitalized

NOTE: Sceptre = Capitalized

Zech 6:12 And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD:

NOTES: BRANCH = Sceptre

Rev 12:1 there appeared a great wonder in heaven

a woman clothed with the sun,

and the moon under her feet,

upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

Rev 12:2 she being with child cried

travailing in birth,

pained to be delivered.

Rev 12:5 she brought forth a man child,

to rule all nations with a rod of iron:

her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

#3 Do you Realize ALL God had to DO to Fulfill Scripture?

God had to Accomplish 15 Different Events within His “Window of Opportunity” for Scripture to Be Fulfilled…

EVIDENCE: BIBLE REFERENCES:

Priestly Course of Zacharias Luke 1:5-9

Q. Were These Things Done BY Plan and WITH Purpose?

Q. Are ALL These Things Merely Conjecture?

Q. Does ALL This “REALLY” Matter?

Q. What’s The Difference? It Makes a Difference To God!

The Truth of God’s Word vs. Tradition of Men

HIS Star – THIS Day

ANS. IT’S YOUR CHOICE!

AND…

People NEED to KNOW

and

People NEED to SEE and HEAR The DIFFERENCE!
