Greetings:
















 

"For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.            Isaiah 9:6

  
      



 
       We believe it would be fitting for this month's home page article to be about JESUS and HIS coming in human form. While much is going on in our world and that worthy of comment, these things pale when held against the incarnation and subsequent death, burial and resurrection of our LORD JESUS, the CHRIST. Our paraphrase comes from Dr. Fruchtenbaum and Ariel Ministries:
 
        First, we would argue that the star that marked the path to HIM was actually the Shekinah of the previous era. Sometimes called the Glory of the LORD, the word star can also be translated, heavenly light. As you recall, the Shekinah had left the temple (and the city) around 606 b.c. This was because of the sin of Israel and their subsequent captivity in Babylon. During that time, the pain and suffering of the Jews was so great that the elders of Israel reasoned that they must find a way to keep this from ever to happening again(see Psalm 137).

        It is believed by scholars (Edersheim, Fruchtenbaum, et al) that a group of scribes called Tanaim surfaced and during this captivity, determined that disobedience to the law of Moses must be avoided at all cost. This was to be accomplished by writing another set of laws to protect the original ones handed down at Sinai. Over time, this method was repeated several times by different groups of scribes and eventually was assembled into what we know as the Talmud. Dr. Fruchtenbaum mentions that the Jews had recorded over 1000 laws for the sabbath alone!! This is where terms like sabbath's day journey come from. Because the word Shekinah means VISIBLE PRESENCE, the GOD of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob would now provide this visible presence through a human body. Thus, the heavenly light moved and hovered over the scene until all visitors (shepherds/magi) had come.

         It's remarkable that the rich and powerful in the Jerusalem/Bethlehem area knew nothing about the birth of the MESSIAH and had to search the scriptures for their answer. So, JESUS would grow up, walk and live as a man in an entirely different holy land, due to the extra Biblical writings that we have mentioned. As the record states, HE was unknown to HIS own(John 1) but this would not hinder the completion of HIS work as REDEEMER.
 
         Addendum: We MUST mention that the nation of Israel is being threatened as never before with, effectively, no allies. This is a key development. We would argue that the rapture is to occur BEFORE the signing(confirming) of a seven year peace treaty with the anti-christ. Clearly, world events are hurtling in that direction. We don't know who or exactly when but surely we are at the door.
