THE REAL CHRISTMAS STORY

Even though people widely accept that Jesus, our Saviour was born on or close to December 25th, this is not really the case. When Jesus was born, it is written there were shepherds tending to their flocks at night. This would have only been done during the Harvest Moon. That would be right around late September. What the significance of December 25th is that it may have been the date Jesus was conceived by God. It would have been right around that time in order for Him to be born right at the time of the Harvest Moon, so there is some significance of this date. This is the real miracle, right? Not the virgin birth, but the conception of a virgin. If a virgin is pregnant, she’s going to give birth. The miracle may have happened on December 25th, but Jesus was not born anywhere around that date.  Just one of those things Christians should know.

Many intellectuals claim that Christians stole Christmas from the pagans and took the tradition of decorating the tree from them also. That is only partly correct. The pagans did decorate their winter holiday trees, but they also worshipped them. Christians do not worship the trees they set up and decorate. Christians also give gifts to loved ones traditionally to honor what the three wise men did when they brought the baby Jesus gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Maybe many of them have lost the idea of that, but that’s how the tradition started. The claim that this was taken from pagan tradition is not true.

Just thought it would be a good idea to set a couple of things straight as the anniversary of the conception of Christ comes. Merry Christmas everyone, and have a happy New Year. God bless.

    Hi;

    I find your post interesting… but I think besides the real story, we should focus on the REAL PURPOSE.

    I just posted about it…

    God bless.

    Thanks for the comment. I totally agree. We should all take in things like Christmas and Easter, and really reflect upon what they are. What they mean. In this blog, my purpose for the time being is to correct misperceptions of what is written. Again, thanks for your comment.

    Three wise men?
    Definitely three gifts, but three wise men. Coulda been thirty.
    And of that star that sits on Chrissy trees. That star lead the wise men straight to Herod, who wanted Christs blood.
    Interesting?

    I’m just going by what was written, and not trying to assume anything else. The star lead them to Herod because he was in their way.

    The Real Chrissy story.

    The star lead the Maggi (not a God fearing religion) to Herod and then to Christ, Herod wanted to kill Christ, so he asked the Maggi to return and tell him where the new king could be found. Seems like a plot to kill the King by a Star.
    Logically a Godly sent star would have avoided Herod?
    Herod upon finding the Magi had scooted, had every male Child under 3 killed. Christ was probably not a new born, maybe just under 3 years old.
    Assuming again
    Just puts a twist to our Christmas tale.

  6. Jesse Norman II says:

    Nah, that’s not what the intent was. The Maggi just knew of the Jewish Messiah and were led by the spirit to go. Christ was a newborn because when the Maggi saw Him He was a baby on the night of His birth. That’s why it’s important to note in this post that there were shepherds tending to their flock at night. You assume anything away from what is written, you’ll find yourself off the path to learning the truth about things. It’s good to question things, but use the Word as your base.
