The time of Jesus birth

November 16, 2019

 

Quote

 

From what we have observed about the approximate time of John’s birth, it should be easy to compute that of Jesus. Luke said that Jesus was conceived sometime in the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy (Luke 1:26, 36). Five full months had passed and Elizabeth was then in her sixth month. Since John the Baptist was probably born some time around March 10, 3 B.C.E., Jesus’ birth would be near September in 3 B.C.E.

 

Unquote

 

Here is the whole chapter if you want to see how he arrives at September, but I certainly don’t endorse this guy at all, it’s just that the scriptural reasoning here seems reasonable.

 

One thing, the early church had ZERO interest in celebrating Jesus birth, and perhaps no interest in knowing exactly when He was born.

The worst enemy of a hateful person is himself.

Finding His will

November 16, 2019

When we lay it all down at His feet and say, “Thy will be done!” then we’re in a very good place to actually find out what His will is.

That first moment

November 15, 2019

What’s the first realization you have after you die?

 

It’s either that Heaven is real, or Hell is real.

 

Depending on where you go.

From above

Depression, temptation, discouragement, oppression……

 

These are all PART of this world.

 

So, the answer will not come from this world.

 

The answer has to come from somewhere else.

 

Guess where?

 

From above.

 

Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.

A little Bible study

November 14, 2019

 

 

“But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. ”

 

1 Corinthians 11:3

 

So…. we find women struggling to submit to their husbands.

 

And we find men struggling to submit to Christ.

 

BUT….. we never find Christ struggling to submit to His Father.

More power?

Now, why would you be uncomfortable imploring God for more of the power of the Holy Spirit, unless your motive was selfish?

Confidence in God

True prayer, itself, is an act of confidence in God.
