Hello, John and Doves,
 
My friend, Lupe, says that her favorite day in the whole year is her own birthday, because all of her friends call her and wish her well.
 
With that in mind, I ask you, whomever it may concern:
    Who in the world celebrates the day of their conception?
 
Yeshua Ha Mashiach was conceived by the Ruach Ha Kodesh in the Virgin Mary's womb on Hanukkah, 3759.
 
Our Savior was then born on Sukkot, 3760, approximately 270 days later.
 
Therefore, Tabernacles will forever be celebrated as the birthday of Emmanuel, God with us!
 
Why else would HaShem command us to rejoice during the eight days of Sukkot?
 
 
Baruch HaShem Yeshua Ha Mashiach,
Mike C.

"To:  Mary Ames....An answer"

Dear Sister in Christ:

I am glad that you read the article.  I think it is correct, however, as I said, "If you accept it, as I have come to accept it", which makes it my thesis.  The thesis is that Hanukkah REPLACED Tabernacles.  It may have been too strong to say that it was done away with, it may be more accurate to say that Hanukkah is the 8th Feast, the new beginning, if you will.

Whatever, the next 7 days will tell the story any way.  Either He will come or He will not.  May prayer is that He does come, for surely the time is (nearly) up.

Remember that in the sign of Noah, there were day counts.  The first was 40 days of rains followed by 110 days on the surface of the water.  This is followed by 74 days to some point, then 40 again.  I think the first two can be identified now, based on Christmas.  Counting backward from April 11/12, the day that antichrist proclaims himself to be God (Read Ron Reese's analysis of this) is exactly 110 days until Dec 23/24.  Then back 40 days is Nov 13/14, the first day of the month.  It seems to fit like a hand in a glove to come to Christmas Eve, the time Jesus was born.

So, as I said at the beginning, perhaps it was too strong to say that God destroyed the Feast of Tabernacles.  My reason was the words of Jesus Himself quoted in the article that their heart was far from Him.  He may have just taken it away at the time, to be fulfilled later??
