BIBLE STUDY: The Star Of Bethlehem, And The REAL Reason For The Christmas Season

­­The Star of Bethlehem was a fascinating Act of God, heralding the birth of His Son, Immanuel, or “God With Us” (Isaiah 7:13-16 / Matthew 1:18-25)! Since Creation, God has commanded His True Worshipers to assemble each year, on a Holy Day that would eventually become the day of Jesus’ birth. God’s Church still assembles on the day Jesus was born; but NOT for the reasons, or on the day which most might imagine!

Join us today as we prove from the pages of your very own Bible, that Jesus Christ was born on the first day of Tishrei (on the Babylonian calendar), or on the first day of Eitanim (seventh month on the Hebrew calendar), or on September 11, 3 B.C. (on the Catholic Gregorian calendar); and that what we now celebrate as “Christmas” is nothing but very old pagan religious practices, coming from Ancient Babylon and beyond (Hebrews 5:12-14)!!!

Bible Study Instructions: One Nation Under God Ministries ( publishes and distributes weekly Bible Studies, worldwide – free of charge, to anyone who requests them, in both printed and electronic formats. Our Studies are intended to be a simple and fun way to learn the Scriptures, and are very easy to follow! We adhere to Jesus Christ’s Biblical instructions to teach and feed the flock of God portions of meat in due season, on weekly Sabbaths, and on the seven annual Holy Days throughout each calendar year (Luke 12:42 / Isaiah 28:9-10 / Matthew 13:52). Using both the Old and New Testaments, our Bible Studies are designed to present a premise, make a statement, or ask a question – followed by one or more Scriptural references. Just look up and read from your Bible the Scriptures listed. Comments following questions elaborate on the Scriptures you just read. Pray always before beginning any study of God’s Word, asking God to open both your eyes and your mind to His Truth; then Prove everything you read, is in fact the Truth, by comparing it to The Word of God (1 Thessalonians 5:21 / 2 Timothy 3:15-17). Then use the Biblical System of Checks and Balances, and SEE if both Jesus Christ, and the First Century Church of God Apostles – also Did, Said, and Taught these SAME THINGS (Galatians 1:1-12, 5:25 / 1 Peter 2:21, 25 / 1 John 2:3-6)! That’s all there is to it! Our Bible Studies are based on the King James Version, unless otherwise stated. We will be praying for your eyes to “see” (Matthew 13:11-17); and we are always available to answer any of your questions! Be Blessed, in Jesus’ Name! - One Nation Under God Ministries (

When God begins to call us out of this world – one which is doomed for destruction; He puts us at the proverbial “crossroads”, or as Jeremiah 6:16 says, God tells us to look and really “see” what this world is producing.

Once we are given eyes to see where this world is headed (Matthew 13:16); God then compels us to ask, “What is Your Solution LORD?”, “What are the Ancient Paths that a humble Moses, and a humble Christ walked?” (Proverbs 3:7). In every age, God calls men and women to follow Him and worship Him in Spirit and in Truth (John 4:22-24). You see most of the world, according to Jesus Christ, does NOT know what they are worshipping; nor do they know how to correctly worship their God, Our Heavenly Father – who requires, and will only accept, worship in Spirit and in Truth (or according to His Truth, which is the Word of God! John 17:17-19). Do you see that we are only sanctified – or set apart from this world as holy – if we are following the Word of God? One of the major pillars of Satan’s kingdom and of his deception of all mankind, is that you can rely solely on Grace and Faith – apart from Obedience – and still make it into heaven! But that is NOT what Jesus taught (Luke 6:46). Jesus addresses those who teach the grace and faith doctrine apart from works – or obedience to His Law (Matthew 7:21 / James 1:22 / 1 John 1:6 / 1 John 2:1-6).

Jesus also addresses those who pervert His concept of LOVE! Many religious leaders teach that godly love is tolerance to every kind of sin, which God says He HATES! Jesus taught us that REAL BIBLICAL LOVE is found ONLY in OBEYING God’s Commands on how to live in this world! Jesus told us that “The LOVE of God” and “The LOVE of our fellow man” is PERFECTED only in keeping and doing the Word of God (Matthew 24:12). Jesus spent a lot of time preaching to us what would happen to the world, when it disregarded God’s Law – the love of many will grow cold! The whole world rejects God’s Holy Days and they hate each other for 364 days. Then on one day they say, “Joy to the world and Merry Christmas” as if that makes everything alright!

One of the best examples of the façade of this world’s Christianity came in 1914 during World War One, on the Western Front

In the days leading up to Christmas, German troops began to decorate their trenches with candles, Christmas trees, and sing holiday carols. Upon hearing this, the British and French troops began to shout Christmas greetings over to their German enemies. Soon, over 100,000 troops had come out of their trenches into “no man’s land” to shake hands, exchange cigarettes, mingle, swap prisoners, exchange food and souvenirs. Many engaged in carol sing-alongs, and football (or “soccer”) games; they collected their dead, and participated in religious burial services together. One British machine gunner, who was a hairdresser in civilian life; pulled out a pair of scissors and began to cut the Germans’ hair.

 The “Spirit of Christmas” lasted until New Year’s Day, then along with threatening orders from both sides’ upper levels of Command – to resume battle and not to fraternize with the enemy; the killing continued, now with the added intensity of tanks and poisonous gas! The Great War which began on 28 July 1914 and lasted until 11 November 1918, would see over 70 million military personnel mobilized, and resulted in the death of over 9 million soldiers and more than 7 million civilians!

“Glory To God in the Highest!!! And on earth: PEACE, Good Will Toward Men!!!” (Luke 2:14). Nope! Not Yet!!!

Jesus Christ, The Real Peace Maker:

Notice what Jesus taught would happen when the whole world returns to keeping His original Holy Days again (Isaiah 66:23-24 / Zechariah 14:16-19 / Habakkuk 2:14 / Numbers 14:21 / Psalm 22:27 / Isaiah 11:9, 40:5, 65:25 / Jeremiah 31:34 / Isaiah 2:1-5). The world has been keeping the traditions of this winter holiday for many thousands of years – even before the Flood; and it has been keeping them under the Name of Christ for almost two thousand years now – and still most of this world hates, kills, and destroys! When the Mountain of the LORD rises above the seven mountains of the beast, then Christmas keeping will be no more; then and only then will all the world celebrate God’s True Holidays – in worldwide and permanent PEACE!!!

How Does God Teach Peace, Love, and Obedience?

If children are ordained by God to follow their parents’ rules – and parents are commanded to nurture and teach their children the INSTRUCTIONS of the Lord (Ephesians 6:1-4 / Proverbs 6:20, 23:22, 22:6); if citizens in any society are commanded to follow the rules and regulations of that society – under God; or to be “law abiding citizens” (Acts 5:29 / Romans 13:1-7 / James 4:17 / 1 Peter 2:13-17); and we are further instructed, as adults, to obey those the Lord sets over us, to teach us to obey the Word of God (Hebrews 13:17 / Isaiah 62:6 / Ezekiel 3:17 / Acts 20:28 / 1 Corinthians 16:16 / 1 Thessalonians 5:12 / Hebrews 13:7, 13:24); then we should see it is a vain, foolish, and silly thing to say we can worship God anyway that we want to, and on any day(s) of our choosing!!! Law abiding citizens are ordained by God to submit to authority in the home, in society, and in the Body of Christ! Knowing this, and having proven it so from Scripture, as we just did; then we had better begin to SUBMIT to the AUTHORITY of GOD, and the rules of The Kingdom of God – that is shortly coming to dominate ALL facets of life of this earth! Let’s read 1 John 2:4 again! DO you REALLY BELIEVE THAT? Do YOU really UNDERSTAND THAT?

It is very important, according to Jesus, that we get our worship practices of A Most Holy God absolutely right (Matthew 15:8-9 / Isaiah 29:13-16 / Matthew 15:10 / Mark 7:7 / 1 John 3:4-10). Yes, it is not just a pure heart God is requiring; He is also requiring a pure form of worship for a Most Holy God (John 4:23-24)!!! Jesus Christ was our example for how we are to worship God the Father! Jesus showed us what days to keep, when to keep them, and exactly how to worship on those days; He even taught us what to teach on very specific days, and at very specific times throughout the year (John 13:12-17 / 1 John 2:3-6)! What Did Jesus Do? We must learn about the example Christ and His Disciples set for us – then we must COPY CHRIST – in ALL things!!!

From the moment that Christ ascended to the Third Heaven to sit next to The Father; Jesus has ALWAYS raised up, and still raises up today, teachers to teach the unfiltered, the undiluted Word of God to those He is calling (Numbers 12:1-16). We must still test and prove these teachers, whom God raises up, according to the Word of God (Galatians 1:8-12 / 1 Thessalonians 5:21). Any teacher of God’s Word, ordained from on High, will begin and maintain the Congregation of The Saints on, and by, teaching obedience to God’s Weekly Sabbath and Holy Days (Exodus 31:12-18 / Hebrews 5:1-10 / John 15:16).

You first learn to FEAR God – for His Wrath is coming quickly on an unrepentant world, then you learn how to OBEY God – for that is where BLESSINGS and UNDERSTANDING come from; then you learn to PRAISE God – for when you Obey Christ, and His Word, you are given LIFE, Abundantly – with Increase and Great Joy (Psalm 111:10)!!! Worshipping The One True God is NOT limitless freedom to do whatever and whenever you want – as many of this world’s religious authorities teach (Matthew 11:27-30). Jesus Christ will control your behavior and teach you the “household rules” when you are brought into the family of God (Hebrews 12:5-13 / Deuteronomy 8:5-20). You must show up for “family gatherings”, abide under the “yoke” or controlling authority of your Father God; and stay away from the assemblies of Satan - once you have been given discernment to know the difference (Deuteronomy 12:1-4, 28-32 / Jeremiah 10:1-8)!!!

Remember, It is The Church (Assembly or Congregation) of God; and Jesus Christ PERSONALLY Selects people to be IN His TRUE Folds of Sheep (John 15:16 / Matthew 16:18 / John 20:21-23 / Matthew 10:1,5-42 / John 10:1-16, 17:6-26)! There MUST BE UNITY in Thought, of Spirit, of Action and Obedience, of Theology and BELIEF in The Church Body, which God Empowered Jesus Christ to Choose and Select people from out of the world, INTO IT (Acts 2:1, 4, 42-47)! If YOU CANNOT OBEY The Father, Christ, or His Ministers who Preach THEIR Words, God will Remove YOU from that Fold of Sheep (1 John 2:15-25)!

If you have been following along with us, in our Bible Studies about Jesus’ Olivet Prophecy, and also in our The King of The North; you would have seen, AND WILL SEE, that America is going to be laid waste by the soon coming Power of the Beast – while at the same time, God’s Elect are kept safe in a Place of Safety. Christian America and God’s True Church cannot be; and they are NOT - one and the same thing!!! The proof is in the Holy Days! Christian America has gone away into pagan Christ Mass celebrations, and is given to the observance of Ishtar or Eastermother earth, and sun god day observance!!!

But God still Calls for His wayward children to REPENT and forsake the observance of pagan gods, and their pagan rites (Deuteronomy 12:1-4, 28-32 / Jeramiah 10:1-8)!!! Can you hear God Calling YOU to forever forsake the traditions of men and of fallen angels, and to return to Him and His Sabbaths (plural) of REST (Psalm 116:4-9)? Today, we are going to learn a little more about how the Saints are to walk before the LORD in the land of the living!

Did you know Jesus was born on September 11, 3 B.C.?

That is a pretty amazing statement; and one that you are not likely to hear spoken from the pulpits of most Christian churches, anytime soon! Here is another pretty amazing statement: Jesus was most probably conceived on December 13 of the previous year, in 4 B.C.!!!

What does all this mean, when most people have spent their entire lives celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ on December 25th? Well, it means that Christmas is entirely a pagan worship celebration, whether you associate the Name of Jesus to it or not!

Now let’s PROVE all of this from your Bible (Isaiah 28:9-10)!!!

Why Messiah Was NOT Born on The Feast of Tabernacles or Sukkot

At His baptism (on the 1st of Elul), He was not quite 30 yet as Luke's gospel declares: 

Luke 3:23 And Yahu'shua (Jesus) Himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli.

The term “began to be about thirty” tells us that He was not quite 30 years old yet. His 30th birthday was fast approaching, and so we know that He was going to turn 30 during one of these fall feasts, either on Yom Teruah, Yom Kippur or Sukkot. But since the Tekiah (trumpet blast on Teruah) is for the “Ushering in of The KING,” it makes more sense prophetically that God was ushering in His Son, the King of Righteousness, on Yom Teruah, or the Feast of Trumpets! He also dwelled in the Sukkah (manger) as a new born with His parents during the 8 days of Sukkot. The announcement and actual birth was on the 1st day of Tishri, then we count 8 days completed, nor counting his birthday; and then on the 10th of Tishri, The Day of Atonement (or Yom Kippur) which was the 9th day from His birth, He was circumcised. The “covering” of the heart is the foreskin, and when it is removed, it is called “FACE TO FACE.”  This is when the High Priest in the temple would go behind the veil to the Holy of Holies and sprinkle the blood of the lamb on the mercy seat once a year on Yom Kippur. This would bring him “face to face” with God the Father as he interceded for Israel. I believe it is important to note here, that one of Jesus Christ’s Names is “The Everlasting Father” (Isaiah 9:6). This is because Jesus “stood in for” The Father, as our intercessor (even in the Old Testament – Malachi 3:6 / Hebrews 13:8); and will continue in that Role, until The Father Comes to this earth with His Tabernacle, 1,100 years after the Second Coming of Christ (Revelation 5:10.20:6,21:1-7,22:1-5)!!! How AWESOME will That be!!!

The bride of Messiah will also have the “veil” removed from her eyes and she will see him face to face (Zechariah 12:10). The foreskin being removed from our hearts is when we are able to “see him” face to face (the veil to our eyes, and our hearts removed – Matthew 13:11). So it is prophetically fitting that he would be circumcised on Yom Kippur. The foreskin is like the “veil” to our hearts. We are commanded to “circumcise the foreskin of our hearts” (Deuteronomy 10:16 / Jeremiah 4:4). Five days later is when Messiah “dwelled” in a “tabernacle” or sukkah (manger) with his parents for 8 days, on the 15th day of the seventh month. 

Another Reason Why the Feast of Tabernacles Does Not Work

Because according to Luke’s Gospel, Joseph and Mary had to travel to Bethlehem to be taxed. While they were there, Mary gave birth to Jesus (Luke 2:4-7). It is important to note that there are three Pilgrimage Feasts that every Israelite man must travel to Jerusalem and keep. According to Deuteronomy 16:16, they are: Passover (Pesach), Pentecost (Shavuot or Feast of Weeks), and the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot). 

But since Jerusalem is 6 miles away from Bethlehem, we know that Joseph and Mary could not have been in Jerusalem for the Feast of Tabernacles when Messiah was born. Had he been born on the Feast of Tabernacles, he would’ve been born in Jerusalem six miles away (not in Bethlehem). Joseph had to appear before God in the Temple in Jerusalem and bring an offering on the Feast of Tabernacles according to Exodus 23:19-20. But if Joseph was in Bethlehem 6 miles away helping his wife give birth in a Sukkah, how then could go to Jerusalem to make on offering for the Feast of Tabernacles? You see, he could not be in both places at once, and Joseph would not have left Mary alone to give birth while he went to Jerusalem to offer sacrifices in the temple! 

The shepherds were also told to go to Bethlehem to see the child, but they were not told to go to Jerusalem. If this was the Feast of Tabernacles, the Angel of God would have told them to go to Jerusalem to keep the Feast in Jerusalem (not to Bethlehem). 

(Luke 2:15-16) Actually, there is clear proof that Jesus could not have been born at any of the three pilgrimage feasts of Passover, Pentecost or Tabernacles. These were times when all Israelite men were required by biblical law to be in Jerusalem (Deuteronomy 16:6, 11, 16). Yet Luke tells us that during the time of Messiah’s nativity “everyone went into his own city” (Luke 2:3) Besides, the Romans would not have selected the three primary festival seasons for a census when most of the Jews in Palestine were required to be in Jerusalem. The reason there was no room at the inn was not because the people were crowding into the Jerusalem area for ceremonial purposes; but, as Luke tells it - they were there to be registered for the census! 

According to the Commandment in Leviticus 12, Mary had fulfilled her 40 days of purification following the birth of a male child and then they brought the child to Jerusalem to be dedicated to God. If he had been born in Jerusalem during the Feast of Tabernacles, they would not have had to travel there following her days of purification because she would’ve already been there for his birth and for the remaining 40 days afterwards.

(Luke 2:22) According to the Law, a woman is considered unclean for 7 days following the birth of a male child. But she is considered unclean for 14 days following the birth of a female child (Leviticus 12:2-3). What this means is that she had to remain separated for seven days following the birth of Messiah. This means that she could not celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles with Joseph in a Sukkah (or manger) because this would render his celebration of this Holy Feast as unclean! Also, during the Ten Days of Awe, Israelites would fast and pray leading up to Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) to cleanse and purify themselves. Mary had seven days of being unclean and then the male child would be circumcised. It is fitting that Mary was “unclean” during the seven days of the “Ten Days of Awe”; but by Yom Kippur she was clean before God. She would not be allowed into the Sanctuary for 33 more days, but she could at least be in the Outer Court of the Temple for Yom Kippur to observe the circumcision of her baby boy (Leviticus 12:4)!!!

Why was there no room in the Inn?

Because even though the Feast of Tabernacles was the only “Pilgrimage Feast” out of the Three Fall Feasts, many people were traveling to, and coming to stay in the surrounding cities of Jerusalem, early in order to observe all three of the Fall Feasts! And because of the Census; everyone returned to their home town, so that the Inn's were all booked up.´╗┐

Jesus fulfilled an intermediate fulfillment of all three Fall Feasts at his First Coming:                

1.) Announcement: Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teruah), ushering in of the King.

2.) Circumcision: Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), removal of the veil (foreskin) called "face to face."

3.) Dwelling with us: Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot); Dwelt with us in a corruptible body.

Jesus will fulfill all three Fall Feasts at his Second Coming:                                    

1.) Husband Ushering in the Bride: Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teruah).

2.) Husband removes veil from the bride's face: Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur).

3.) Husband consummates the marriage; Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot); Dwells with bride for 1,000 years of Sabbath rest.

´╗┐Jesus was NOT BORN ON DECEMBER 25TH, and it can be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt! The time line for the schedule of the Priesthood set up by King David, in 2nd Chronicles 24, is easy to follow when you graph it out. Then it becomes very easy to determine the date of when Jesus was born simply by knowing that John the Baptist's Father (Zechariah) was a priest in the Temple of the division of Abijah (Luke 1:5). This helps us narrow down the birth of Jesus to around sometime in September. 

After we rule out a December 25th birth for Christ using the scriptures presented; we will narrow it down to The Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teruah) or September 11th, 3 B.C.; and show that Jesus fulfilled all three of the Fall Feasts at his birth: 

1.) The Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teruah): Day of Birth:

The birth announcement came on September 11th, with the Constellation appearing in the sky that night, and Mary went into labor after sundown, giving birth that night. The next day (day two) would start an 8 day count (finishing on day 9). The next day after that, day 10 or Atonement (Yom Kippur) would have been when Jesus was circumcised. 

2.) Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur): Circumcision

3.) Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot): Dwelled in a Manger/Sukkah with his parents

We will calculate now the "gestation period" which could set Christ’s birth date anywhere within a "window" of about 15 days between the Feast of Trumpets & the Feast of Tabernacles; but remembering we also have to align this with the appearance of the Star of Bethlehem. The Angel Gabriel visited John the Baptist's Father, Zechariah; and this helps us to know when John the Baptist was born. From there, we can count 6 months (180 days forward) to find out exactly when Jesus was born. We will also see when Gabriel visited Mary to announce that she would conceive. 

On What Day Was Jesus Born?

(Luke 1:5, 8, 23-24)

The clue given to us here is that Zacharias was of the "course" of Abia. 

The 24 Courses of the Temple Priesthood::

King David on God's instructions (1 Chronicles 28:11-13) had divided the sons of Aaron into 24 groups (1 Chronicles 24:1-4), to setup a schedule by which the Temple of the Lord could be staffed with priests all year round in an orderly manner. After the 24 groups of priests were established, lots were drawn to determine the sequence in which each group would serve in the Temple (1 Chronicles 24: 7-19). That sequence is as follows: 

The Division of the Priesthood            

1 Chronicles 24:7 1. Jehoiarib 2. Jedaiah

1 Chronicles 24:8 3. Harim 4. Seorim

1 Chronicles 24:9 5. Malchijah 6. Mijamin

1 Chronicles 24:10 7. Hakkoz 8. Abijah

1 Chronicles 24:11 9. Jeshuah 10. Shecaniah

1 Chronicles 24:12 11. Eliashib 12. Jakim

1 Chronicles 24:13 13. Huppah 14. Jeshebeab

1 Chronicles 24:14 15. Bilgah 16. Immer

1 Chronicles 24:15 17. Hezir 18. Aphses

1 Chronicles 24:16 19. Pethahiah 20. Jehezekel

1 Chronicles 24:17 21. Jachim 22. Gamul

1 Chronicles 24:18 23. Delaiah 24. Maaziah 

1 Chronicles 24:19 “These were the orderings of them in their service to come into the house of the LORD, according to their manner, under Aaron their father, as the LORD God of Israel had commanded him”.

Now each one of the 24 "courses" of priests would begin and end their service in the Temple on the Sabbath, a tour of duty being for one week (2 Chronicles 23:8, 1 Chronicles 9:25). On three occasions during the year, all the men of Israel were required to travel to Jerusalem for festivals of the Lord, so on those occasions all the priests would be needed in the Temple to accommodate the crowds. Those three festivals were Unleavened Bread, Pentecost, and Tabernacles (Deuteronomy 16:16). 

The Yearly Cycle of Service in the Temple

The Hebrew calendar begins in the spring, during the month of Aviv, so the first "course" of priests would be that of the family of Jehoiarib, who would serve for seven days. The second week would then be the responsibility of the family of Jedaiah. The third week would be the feast of Unleavened Bread, and all priests would be present for service. Then the schedule would resume with the third course of priests, the family of Harim. By this plan, when the 24th course was completed, the general cycle of courses would repeat. This schedule would cover 51 weeks or 357 days, enough for the lunar Hebrew calendar (about 354 days). So, in a period of a year, each group of priests would serve in the Temple twice on their scheduled course, in addition to the 3 major festivals, for a total of about five weeks of duty. 

The Conception of John the Baptist     

(Luke 1:23-24) Beginning with the first month, Nisan, in the spring (March-April), the schedule of the priest's courses would result with Zacharias serving during the 10th week of the year. This is because he was a member of the course of Abia (Abijah), the 8th course, and both the Feast of Unleavened Bread (15-21 Aviv) and Pentecost (6 Sivan) would have occurred before his scheduled duty. This places Zacharias' administration in the Temple as beginning on the second Sabbath of the third month, Sivan (May-June).


Having completed his Temple service on the third Sabbath of Sivan, Zacharias returned home and soon conceived his son John. So John the Baptist was probably conceived shortly after the third Sabbath of the month of Sivan.

The Conception of Jesus Christ            

Now the reason that the information about John is important, is because according to Luke, Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit, in the sixth month of Elisabeth's pregnancy (Luke 1:24-27

Verse 26 refers to the sixth month of Elizabeth's pregnancy, not Elul, the sixth month of the Hebrew calendar; and we can see this is made plain by the context of verse 24 and again in verse 36: 

Mary stayed with Elizabeth for the last 3 months of her pregnancy, until the time that John was born (Luke 1:56-57). 

Now working with John's conception late in the third month (Sivan), and advancing six months; we arrive late in the 9th month of Kislev (Nov-Dec) for the time frame for the conception of Jesus!

The first day of the Jewish festival of Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, is celebrated on the 25th day of Kislev, and Jesus is called the light of the world (John 8:12, 9:5, 12:46). This is NOT just a mere coincidence. In the book of John, Hanukkah is called the feast of dedication (John 10:22). Hanukkah is an eight day festival, celebrating the relighting of the menorah in the rededicated Temple, which according to the story, stayed lit miraculously for eight days on only one day's supply of oil. 

The Birth of John the Baptist               

Based on a conception shortly after the third Sabbath of the month of Sivan, projecting forward an average term of about 10 lunar months (40 weeks), we arrive in the month of Aviv. It would seem that John the Baptist may have been born in the middle of the month, which would coincide with Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread. It is interesting to note, that even today, it is customary for the Jews to set out a special goblet of wine during the Passover Seder meal, in anticipation of the arrival of Elijah that week, which is based on the prophecy of Malachi 4:5. Jesus identified John as the "Elijah" that the Jews had expected (Matthew 17:10-13). The angel that appeared to Zacharias in the temple also indicated that John would be the expected "Elias" (Luke 1:17). So then, the Feast of Unleavened Bread begins on the 15th day of the 1st month (Aviv), and this is a likely date for the birth of John the Baptist, the expected "Elijah"!!! 

The Birth of Jesus                              

Since Jesus was conceived six months after John the Baptist, and we have established a likely date for John's birth, we need only move six months farther down the Hebrew calendar, to arrive at a likely date for the birth of Jesus! From the 15th day of the 1st month (Aviv), we go to the 1st day of the 7th month (Tishri). And what do we find on that date? It is the Feast of Trumpets! The 1st day of Tishri begins the fourth of the last of seven Holy Days of the year - to which all the men of Israel were to gather in Jerusalem for Temple services. (Leviticus 23:24). 


(Isaiah 7:14)  Immanuel means "God with us." The Son of God had come to dwell with, or tabernacle on earth with His people (John 1:14)!!! The word in the Hebrew for dwelt is “succah” and the name of the Feast of Tabernacles in Hebrew is Sukkot, a festival of rejoicing and celebration; that will happen as Christ fulfills the reason the Father sent Him to earth (to take His Throne, to reconcile mankind and do away with sin, enact a Sabbath Rest worldwide for 1,000 years, and raise all of mankind from their graves)!

Narrowing His Birth Down to the Exact Day

The constellation of Virgo (Bethulah in Hebrew) and Ariel the Lion of Judah was also seen as a sign in the heavens according to Revelation 12; and that this was seen precisely on September 11th in 3 B.C., which fell on the 1st of Tishri on the Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teruah). Many Messianic Jews celebrate the birth of Jesus on the Feast of Tabernacles which came 15 days later. They do not fully understand the New Testament clarified purpose of each Holy Day, nor that the prior fulfillment of Trumpets coincided with an astrological event that can very precisely be tracked down to an exact date – now using modern technology! 

Some Messianics purport that the constellation appeared two weeks early to prepare the shepherds and wise men, and that the actual birth of Jesus took place on the Feast of Tabernacles 15 days later. They believe Jesus came to “tabernacle among us” according to John chapter 1, “the word became flesh and "tabernacled" (dwelled) among us” (which He did; but this is a weak argument to violate other Scriptures such as Luke 2:11, 15-16)! I am more inclined to go with the totality of modern research, ALL the Scriptures about Christ’s birth (Isaiah 28:9-10 / 1 Thessalonians 5:21) - and not just some; and the other reasoning that I have presented as we began our Study today!

The Bible clearly shows the birth of Christ to be on September 11, in 3 B.C.; and the date of His conception on Hanukkah; and His circumcision of the Day of Atonement - ALL support this! Jesus was born on The Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah or head of the civil new year – a Babylonian concept adopted by the Jews after their captivity; and now MOST of the business world today too!), which is also called Biblically, Yom Teruah (The Day of Blowing)! It’s also Rosh Khodesh which means the head of the month (or of a Jewish new month – at a new moon). Rosh Hashanah occurs on the 1st of Tishri every year on the Hebrew – Biblical calendar, and occurs in the fall of each year, on a modern Gregorian calendar that most people recognize today. You can learn much more about How God Really Measures Time, at!!!

The Gestation Period                                    

One last proof of calculation before we move on! Did Jesus’ conception happen 270-271 days prior to September 11th 3 B.C.?

In order to fully understand our next point, remember that our current Gregorian Calendar was instituted by Pope Gregory XIII on October 5, 1582. This Catholic evolution of Julius Cesar’s Julian Calendar, simply did NOT exist in the year of Christ’s birth. What we are attempting to do here, is go back in time, and take this new perversion of time keeping (ie: the Gregorian Calendar) that most people alive today, grew up on; and overlay it upon God’s calendar, so it will become clearer - in concept, to those who only understand our modern calendars.

If we count up the days from January 1st to September 11th in 3 B.C. (a non leap year, because 4 A.D. is a leap year which would make 1 B.C. a leap year), then we get 254 days. That means 18 days backwards in December 4 B.C., should be the exact date of the conception (December has 31 days). Our target should then be December 13th, 4 B.C. for the date of the conception based on a 271 day average human gestation period for male babies. Also, the Hebrew word for pregnancy is “herayon” (hey resh yud vav nun). Since the Hebrew letters also have numerical values it would look something like this: 

Hey=5, resh=200, yud=10, vav=6, nun=50; or total=5+200+10+6+50= or 271 days! Amazing Indeed!


There is nothing about Jesus that is related to Christmas, except man-made customs and traditions!

Saturnalia was the celebration of the winter solstice from ancient Babylon, a celebration of when Semiramis gave birth to Tammuz on December 25th (an ancient mother and son god – that would later be perverted into Mother Mary and Baby Jesus). The Roman and Greek world worshipped the sun in a religion called “Mithraism”, and December 25th was the Nativity of the Sun (Sol - the sun god). Tammuz was supposedly the rebirth of Nimrod who is also known as Baal. The yule log is from ancient Babylon, symbolizing the stump for Nimrod or Baal, who was “cut down” by Noah’s son Shem. The green tree decorated with silver and gold and nailed down so that it would not totter, was celebrated by ancient Israel as they apostatized (Jeremiah 10:3-4), and there are a number of references in the Old Testament to a green tree (or groves of trees – Deuteronomy 12:2-3) used as idols. This is the same Christmas tree customs which people use today!!! Satan has made an absolute certainty of that! Just as God has ensured that His True Worship practices and Holy Days have survived, from the Garden of Eden, and the pre-flood world; so too Satan jealously guards his holidays and times and manner of worship!

Christmas Trees:                                 

The round sparkly balls represent the sun, and the different ornaments are different types of fruit; on an artificial “tree of life” – which God removed from humanity until they become spirit beings (Genesis 3:21-23 / Revelation 22:14). Satan has taken God’s tree of life AND the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which were in the midst, or the center, of the Garden, and perverted them into one and the same (Genesis 3:2-3, 2:8-10 / Revelation 22:1-7). Do you see how the Garden of Eden was set up to foreshadow God’s Throne Room, AND to Teach men of God’s Plan of Redemption? God was not withholding something good from His kids; God was merely showing them that when they grew up “spiritually” they would be able to partake of these Great Gifts from on High!!!

Satan has not only perverted God’s Plan, and His HOLY DAYS, which teach Knowledge and Wisdom through Obedience; but Satan also perverts the Tree of Life by telling us, “You can have it NOW!” “You can set it up, right in the midst of your homes, and in the middle of your town squares, on the altars of your churches!” Satan tell us to ignore the Wisdom of our Heavenly Father; “You are ready to partake of the Tree of Life NOW!” OR “There is nothing wrong with having a Christmas tree to celebrate the birth of Jesus!”

And so we ignore God’s Wisdom and His Perfect Timing (Genesis 3:13-24)!!! Satan now tells us, “It is ok to have your Christmas tree (tree of life), decorate it anyway you like, celebrate your eternal life in heaven, which Jesus came to bring to you!” When God’s Truth is instead: YOU will die for your sins, and return to dust – just as your rebellious father and mother (Adam and Eve) did – and are now dead and dust and without life (Psalm 115:16-18 / John 3:13 / Matthew 5:5 / Daniel 12:2-3)! We Praise the LORD and show our love for Him, by Worshipping Him in Spirt and in Truth (John 4:23-24)!!! We believe in the Resurrection of the dead, when all of God’s Called Out Ones will Rise together, at the Return of Christ, to Inherit Eternal Life (1 John 3:1-3 / Hebrews 11:39-40 / 1 John 2:25)!

The Little Horn – The Catholic Pope!         

The popes, as we read in Roman writing from about the date of 350 A.D.; deliberately renamed the birth of Sol (the sun-god) the “Mass of Christ”, and deemed that this worship would occur on December 25, as now a “Christian custom”! They took exclusively pagan customs, that were pillars of the worship which God Hated; from the times of antiquity, and simply renamed them as a new Christian holiday! Isn’t it interesting that there were ancient worship practices of a woman and child, thousands of years before Jesus was born? These Madonna and child representations were Semiramis and Tammuz from ancient Babylon; and now countless millions upon millions adorn their countertops and front lawns with a barnyard scene honoring this mother and child!

So many Christians wonder when reading the Book of Revelation, what the “MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH” really is (Revelation 17:5). Notice this clue in Revelation 17:6, and THE ANSWER in Revelation 17:15, 18!!! The Catholic Church which invented Christmas and passed it on to her harlot sisters (every other “Christian” church that still celebrates this holiday!); is shown by God, as drunk with the blood of the saints – or THOSE WHO STILL KEEP THE HOLY DAYS JESUS AND HIS CHURCH KEPT (Revelation 1:1-3, 9, 6:9, 12:17, 20:4, 22:21)!!! Do you see that the GRACE of our Lord Jesus Christ is ONLY with those who Know The Word of God, and Testify to The Word of God, EXACTLY as Jesus Christ and His True Disciples did? This is a FOUNDATIONAL TRUTH OF GOD!!! One that cannot be overstated according to Jesus (Matthew 24:23-25)!!!

Maybe you have never looked at this WARNING from Jesus in this light; but if FALSE MINISTERS tell you “LOOK Jesus Christ is in Christmas!!!” “Look, Jesus Christ can be found in Easter!!!” “Just look past their pagan roots!” - DO NOT BELIEVE THEM!!! For The Bible tells us Plainly, that EVERYONE, except God’s VERY ELECT, will be misled (Matthew 24:24)!!!

Christmas is a SWEET POISON that will brand you with the mark, the sign, and the seal of Satan – who is the LIAR of all liars! You cannot wear BOTH signs or marks! You cannot have dual citizenship! We MUST CHOOSE one or the other – SO SAYS GOD (Deuteronomy 30:10-20)!!! Now you should KNOW what Matthew 4:4 / Luke 4:4 / Deuteronomy 8:3 really mean! We are Sustained, and Grow, and LIVE – not just by physical food – because physical life is temporary; we LIVE, GROW, and are SUSTAINED – Eternally – if we Eat, and Digest The MEAT of The Word; which so many on breast milk have never even tasted!!!

Rat poison is mostly Good Food, with just a little bit of poison mixed in!!!

Rats are smart! They smell the real food, and taste the real food – but never taste the poison with which the food is laced! They die not knowing why! Likewise, Mystery Babylon is a sweet poison! It is injected into the birth of Christ – such a powerful message, that our Redeemer has come to save the world; that we fail to notice we are NOT celebrating the Birth of Christ HOW and WHEN God ordained THAT DAY to be kept!!! NOTHING about Christmas is from God the Father!!! We are deliberately kept ignorant of the TRUE times and seasons by evil and deceptive men; but that should be NO EXCUSE for you! The TRUTH is NOT hid; it is PLAINLY written in your own BIBLE, if you will simply open its pages and READ IT – on a Sabbath Day!!!

American History 101                          

The Puritans in America forbade the celebration of Christmas in 1659, because they knew and taught what we are teaching here – that Christmas has nothing to do with Christ, or the conception, or the birth of our Savior! It was as recent as 1828, before Saturnalia, or the winter Sol-stice (sun god celebration), became established in big cities, like New York – resulting in drunken brawling, rapes, and riots; and the implementation of a profession police force to combat the civil unrest! By 1867, Charles Dickens was promoting, “A Christmas Carol” novel in America, which was written in 1843. The book came at a time when England was examining and promoting ancient pagan and Catholic Christmas traditions, like Christmas trees in the home; and the new introduction of the Christmas card. Dickens’ book caught on in America, and so did the Christmas tree, Christmas cards, and then even the commercialization of the fire god Satan, as “Santa”; whose demons were now cute little “elves” who would make toys for the tots! By 1875 the Puritans who had founded America as a land to promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ; had in essence, lost the battle to John 4:23-24, and to keep America from learning the way of the heathen! President Harrison had the first White House Christmas tree in 1889, and by 1890, all U.S. States had voted to recognize Christmas as an official holiday. Just as King Saul disobeyed God’s instructions in front of all the people, and then he refused to admit to his own sin, making excuses and blaming others (1 Samuel 13:5-14, 15:1-35); so our leaders do when they follow pagan worship practices and even promote them in the halls of government! God is not a respecter of persons (Acts 10:33-34 / Deuteronomy 1:17, 10:17 / 2 Chronicles 19:7 / Job 34:19 / Galatians 2:6); as He rejected King Saul for disobedience – He will reject us too!

Christmas is just part of the religious side of Mystery Babylon; it also has an economic side, and a political side! These three strands of Mystery Babylon will be woven tightly together, in the soon coming years, and will strangle an unsuspecting world that has rejected the Way and the Word of God!!!

Your excuses won’t matter to God!    

You say, “it is a family day, time to enjoy fellowship with friends, we do good on that day, we feed the poor, or Pastors bring those into church who would not normally hear the Gospel - except we preach on Christmas day or Christmas eve” (notice Satan is aware that sundown Christmas Eve and Christmas Day is all the same day, Biblically – even though most who attend church do not realize this! It is a holy day to Satan – and if you give “it” any special meaning at all; you are playing right into the devil’s hands)! All these things can, and should be done on any other day of the year! So WHY the fanfare on the 25th? For no other reason then, that Satan says so!!! And those who are a slave to Satan must do as their master says! We need to seriously reconsider our fond affections for this very evil day!     


The Meaning of The Feast of Trumpets to the Body of Christ:

In 3 B.C., The Biblical Feast of Trumpets occurred on September 11th. Of course, the time keeping system of using Roman names was just starting to be invented - when God first Chose to have His Son come into the world on His Holy Day!


Let’s read Revelation 12:1-3. Do you see how God intended to set up His Church, and then to have His Son come through His People at His Appointed time? But Satan, knowing the Plan of God in advance, developed and established a counterfeit religion long before the birth of Christ was to occur; he then sat about to wait! Satan has now all but “devoured” the birth of Christ in Christmas and other pagan practices; hiding from the masses - who go to church each year on that date, that Jesus was really born on the Feast of Trumpets – which Heralds in The Coming of the King of the World!

Revelation 12:5 - On the Feast of Trumpets; there has historically been kept, by the remnant of the Jews, a tradition of four trumpet blasts. They call the four blasts today: Tekiah, Shevarim, Teruah, Tekiah Gedolah. The last one, “Tekiah” is a pure unbroken sound that calls one to “search his heart, forsake wrong ways, and seek forgiveness through repentance”. This is the sound that God will use to usher in His KING – Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:51-52 / 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18). For those who keep God’s Holy Days, they know God’s purpose in these days; it is fitting that The KING of Kings (or of Glorified Saints – Revelation 5:10,20:6) should arrive on The Day of Trumpets or the Feast of Trumpets, both as a baby and as a Glorified King. God the Father will also use His NEVER ABOLISHED Holy Day, to come to earth and take over His Throne from His Son, to Whom He gave it to - for a season (1 Corinthians 15:24-28 / Revelation 21:1-7)! THERE IS NO BETTER REASON TO KEEP THIS HOLY DAY (Leviticus 23:23-25)!!!

What Was The Star of Bethlehem?      

There is a great star chart program on the worldwide web, which you can download for free; it is called “Stellarium”. If you like it as much as I did, you can donate a few dollars to keep them going! For those of you in attendance here today, I will demonstrate what the stars looked like over Jerusalem in 3 B.C. on the September 11, during the Feast of Tabernacles – the Day Jesus Christ was born. This program will allow you to actually “see” what the Star of Bethlehem was, and also to predict when a very similar sky will appear again – in our lifetime – so you can see for yourself – almost exactly what the Magi saw!!! When you learn what we are going to show you here today, you will never want to diddle around with counterfeit pagan days again. The Real McCoy is Trumpets, the first day of the seventh month, of God’s Biblical Calendar – that is Jesus’ real birthday; but more importantly, it is the Holy Day of The Lord on which He says He is going to come back – in some year, and in some hour, of which no man knows!

The Woman Clothed with the Sun:       

When you run the star chart and animate it; you see Revelation 12:1 come alive!!! The sun comes up over the horizon and washes Virgo the Virgin in sunlight! The moon is at her feet (left foot), and there are twelve stars above her head (the 9 stars that make up Leo the Lion (Judah), to include Regulus (Latin) – which means regal, royal, or kingship (In Hebrew the expression “between his feet”, is literally reglav; which is very similar to the Latin word “Regulus” – which is located at the lion’s feet!!! Let’s look at Genesis 49:9-10 / Hebrews 7:14 / Luke 1:32-35). Then there are three more “stars” or planets: Jupiter in conjunction with Regulus, and Venus at her shoulder, and Mercury at her left arm – making twelve stars total (Numbers 24:17-19). In Astronomy, Regulus is known as the “King Star”; and now we know why!!!                                

The Star the Magi followed (Matthew 2:2) was “Regulus”, the brightest star in Leo, also called the Lion’s Heart. Located 77 light years away, it is 4 times as big as our sun, 140 times brighter, giving out an estimated 350 times more energy than our sun!!! On September 11th, 3 B.C., Regulus in conjunction with Jupiter made up the constellation or star known as “His Star in the East”.

(Psalm 19:1-6) This clearly speaks of the witness of the stars in the heavens and their testimony to the Plan of God (The Gospel). This was the sole witness to countless generations of people, of God’s future Plan before He prepared His written Word to co-witness to the Tesitmony of God. (Psalm 19:7-14) then addresses The written Word of God – His Eternal Law!         

In the year of 2017 A.D., two days after the Feast of Trumpets which occurred in that year, on 21 September; we had a very unique opportunity to again witness the stars line up, almost exactly as they did for the birth of Christ in 3 B.C.!!! We saw on 23 September 2017, Virgo again “clothed with the sun,” the moon is now under her feet, and above her head are 3 planets—Mercury, Mars, and Venus, which are in alignment with the star Regulus in Leo. The 9 stars of Leo and the 3 aligning planets make the crown of 12 stars. Thus this alignment meets the same criteria of the first fulfillment of Revelation 12:1 (when Jesus was born)!!! But HOW is this relevant for us today???

Now notice Revelation 12:7-9. Could a subsequent alignment of these constellations, now that we have almost totally fulfilled the prophesies of Daniel chapter 11, and await one final King of The North, and Pope to come; could this mean our time is short, that the daily sacrifices could be started again in our immediate future? It bears watching, as Christ told us to; now that we have more “tools” to watch with, and to pray always that we may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that must come to pass; and to stand before the Son of Man!!!

Remember that the 9 days that fall after the Feast of Trumpets, that lead up to the Day of Atonement, include a Sabbath day. The Jews refer to this Sabbath Day and the ten days between Trumpets, and to include Atonement, as “The Ten Days of Repentance” and the “Sabbath of Return” (Sabbath Shuvah or Sabbath T’shuvah), or “The Days of Awe”. I am intrigued that in 2017, two days after The Feast of Trumpets (on sundown Wednesday, 20 September until sundown Thursday, 21 September) is a Sabbath Day – and not just any Sabbath Day; but the “Sabbath of Return”!!! This is precisely the day that the next celestial alignment of Revelation 12:1 will take place!!! Remember too, that God pours out His Seven Bowls or Vials of plagues upon mankind, in the 8 days between, The Feast of Trumpets and The Day of Atonement (See our timeline chart in our “Olivet Prophecy” Bible Study series for much more on this)!                               

Let’s go now to the Book of Hosea 14:2-10 which the Jews always read on Sabbath Shuvah, “The Sabbath of Return”. “Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? Prudent, and he shall know them?”

The Sign, Leo (on Holy Days), in the sky above Jerusalem, on special days (Sabbath Shuvah), with their alignments and meanings pointing to the First and the Second Coming of Christ. The First – pointing to His Birth as KING of Kings; and the Second – pointing to The Bright and Morning Star – when Jesus becomes KING over all the earth (Revelation 22:16-17)!

There are other things that we must look for too, besides the planetary alignments; these we have discussed in great detail in previous Bible Studies. Read the following three Bible Study series (at for more Biblical information on what else Jesus said must happen before His Return to this earth:

The Olivet Prophecy - It Was An Ancient And Personal Warning From Jesus Christ. But Did Jesus Intend For This Message To Be Even More Relevant For Those Of Us Who Are Living Today? (Parts One through Four)

Learning How To Recognize The King Of The North, The Beast Of Revelation, And The Abomination Of Desolation (Parts One through Four)

The Jewish Festival Of Hanukkah - A Look At Its Biblical Significance For Christians Today                

However, the importance of God’s Stellar Calendar should not be taken lightly by the Saints, nor should God’s Word regarding our deep affections for the vain and evil customs that will desensitize us to watching accurately and passionately for the Return of our Savior!!!                                              

Now you should KNOW, with absolute certainty that Jesus Christ was born on Yom Teruah, or The Feast of Trumpets; which always occurs on the first day of the seventh month, or using our modern Gregorian calendar - on September 11th, 3 B.C.!!!                                

The planetary alignment that occurred that year, fulfilled exactly the prophecy of Revelation 12:1-3! On no other day do we see this planetary alignment taking place! On this day, and never before this date, nor ever again after; has this constellation been seen (The Star of Bethlehem)! It was “Virgo” the virgin” or “Bethulah” (in Hebrew), and she had 12 stars around her head (for the twelve tribes of Israel), and the moon was under her feet. The sun was “mid- body” and so she was “clothed with the sun” and she was giving birth to “Ariel” the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. This happened at no other time in history except on this date.

When The Saints Go Marching In:      

The Bride of Christ will follow the same pattern as our LORD used! Just as He was born on Yom Teruah, or the Feast of Trumpets; so His Bride will be “born again” with her new incorruptible spirit body, as she is “caught up” to meet him in the air, at the sound of the “Last Trumpet” (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)!!!

We invite you to try your hand at some Astronomy software, and prove the concepts we provided for you here. There are a very many websites out there which will provide in-depth and “as technical as you want to go” explanations for inquiring minds!

For more information on The Feast of Trumpets, we invite you to read our Bible Study:                           

HOLY DAY: Why Did Jesus and His Disciples Keep the Feast of Trumpets (NOT Rosh HaShanah; But Yom Teruah)?

And before you or your family ever celebrate Christmas again; we invite you to watch our VIDEO: The History of Christmas (at for a better understanding of how most of the world came to keep the most popular holiday in history!

Christmas pays honor to a fallen arch angel; and dishonors God the Father and the sacrifice of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! The Feast of Trumpets, if kept the Way Jesus showed us how to (as does keeping all the other Holy Days of God) – are God the Father’s Ordained Way for us to Love and Worship Him (Revelation 18:4-8)!!!                                           

“For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the Trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first!” (1 Thessalonians 4:16). Now that is going to be something to see (1 John 3:1-3)!!!

Amen! Come LORD Jesus, COME!!!

The sad state of affairs today is that the vast majority of Americans are Bible illiterates (Hosea 4:6). They simply have never read the book which they profess to regard as the “Word of God”. If we are to change this, we must begin using the Bible as our primary source of education, to learn about God and His teachings (Matthew 6:33).

If you have never faithfully kept God’s seventh day Sabbath holy or God’s Holy Days, the way Jesus Christ did – in the flesh, and in the fellowship of other followers of the Son of Man (Hebrews 10:25); we invite you to obediently enter into God’s rest today, and to keep the Feasts of the LORD (Hebrews 4:1-11 / Leviticus 23:1-44)! Contact us to find out where we fellowship and worship God, in your area, on His Sabbath Days (Exodus 31:12-18). We would love to hear from you and help get you started!

”But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one” (John 10:26-30).

Christians must learn to read the Bible, interpret the scriptures according to Biblical principles (Isaiah 28:10, 13), and begin to apply the precepts they learn in their walk with God. Individual study is essential; coupled with fellowship times of group study, worship, and discussions of personal insights and observations.

We strive, each Saturday, to foster an open and welcoming atmosphere where Spirit led confirmation, clarification, questions, and correction can be made in the fellowship of other students of God’s Word.

One Nation Under God Ministries ( is working to unify the body of Christ in the worship of God the Father, in the way Jesus showed us to - in Spirit and in Truth!
