Since the day of Pentecost there is only One True Messiah:
The Apostle Paul was given the light that the only begotten son of God is Jesus and that as the Messiah of God his blood by his sacrifice made peace with God for all mankind - and the sacrifice of Jesus made it possible for God to rescue us from the oppression and darkness of Satan in this life by the gift of spiritual birth of holy spirit, and Jesus will complete his role as the Messiah of God in the course of human events when he will administer justice to Satan the Adversary of God and destroy the last enemy, death;
and in doing so will fulfill the unconditional "Abrahamic Covenant" and the "New Covenant" wherein Israel and all peoples of the earth shall be blessed;
We submit the light that the "Great Tribulation" was referred to in the Old Testament and therefore known about before the day of Pentecost. We have the light that the Great Tribulation refers to God dealing with Israel and the ungodly. The Apostle Paul specifically refers to this time as a time of the "Wrath of God" - the Day of the Lord" in 1 & II Thessalonians.
We have the light the Prophecy of Daniel will be fulfilled when the false messiah known as the "Anti-Christ" will convince Israel to make a covenant with him and in the midst of the covenant he will betray their trust. This course of human events to come will require Jesus to intervene to save Israel. Jesus refers to the Great Tribulation in Matthew 24:21 and the "Anti-Christ" - Matthew 24:15. We submit the light Jesus will deliver Israel from the "Anti-Christ" and his army.
We also submit the light that this time of the Great Tribulation will be a time of great darkness upon the earth - for those days shall be as the days of Noah.
Jesus told the people of Israel that it was the will of God that everyone who believes on him as the Messiah of God will be given everlasting life. Jesus promised he would raise from the dead whoever believes and accepts he is the Messiah of God - John 6:35-40. Jesus told the people of Israel that he was going to establish the Kingdom of God within their lifetime but not before the Great Tribulation.
During the ministry of Jesus, Israel was blessed to have the favor of God but was still under the law. Jesus explained to the people that those who believed he was the Messiah of God had to stay faithful to the Faith and not submit to the false Messiah of Satan called the "Anti-Christ" and serve him instead of Jesus.
We submit the light the people of the Great Tribulation are under the law in the course of human events to come and that those people who believe and are faithful to Jesus and die during this time of the oppression and darkness of the Messiah of Satan the "Anti-Christ" will be raised from the dead by Jesus at his second coming. This will be the first resurrection from the dead in the course of human events that is known to us as the resurrection of the "just" - the faithful to Jesus - who are resurrected from the dead unto everlasting life - Matthew 24;37.
We submit that although the Sadducees of the Sanhedrin did not believe in resurrection from the dead and were primarily the ones we see in the book of Acts who later sought to kill the Apostles of Jesus, that many of the Pharisees of the Sanhedrin who did believe in resurrection from the dead had faith Jesus was the Messiah. Also, James, the brother of Jesus, who became a leader in Jerusalem, totally believed Jesus was the Messiah of God and that the only reason he remained faithful to the law along with others in Jerusalem is that Jesus had said the law would not pass until all was fulfilled and instructed that only those who believed he was the Messiah of God and were faithful to the end by not submitting to the false Messiah of Satan called the Anti-Christ would be given everlasting life. Jesus thought the false messiah would appear shortly after his death, resurrection and ascension - Mark 13: 14-30. James had very good reason to expect Jesus to return soon - Jesus was his brother and had told him so.
We as ambassadors and servants of Jesus whom we serve submit the light of the Faith has been given to us in the Holy Scriptures for all mankind to be reconciled to God and receive the "Armor of Light" - Our Spiritual Birthright since the day of Pentecost.
We affirm the light Adam was the first son of God and was made, formed and created - Genesis 2:7, Isaiah 43:7; and that it was holy spirit that God created within Adam in order for him to have fellowship with God - Genesis 1:26,27, I Thessalonians 5:23. This created spirit left Adam when he compromised the integrity of his fellowship with God through disobedience of the light given him by God and he died a spiritual death in the very day he transgressed against God - Genesis 1:27. Adam lost his spiritual fellowship with God and all human beings are born under the consequences of Adam's transgression. All human beings since Adam are born under the oppression and darkness of Satan without the benefit of fellowship with God.
The Apostle Paul gives us the light that in order to have fellowship with God there must be reconciliation with Him - Romans 6:23, Romans 5:10-17, Romans 8:9-17. The Apostle Paul calls Jesus the "last Adam" - I Corinthians 15:45. God gave Adam the light that His messiah would be born of the "seed of the woman". The "seed of the woman" when she gives birth is a human child. We have the light from the four gospels concerning the birth, ministry, death and resurrection of the messiah that the One True God created seed in the virgin Mary and Mary conceived with child and gave birth to the only begotten son of God - a male child whom was named Jesus.
We submit the light Jesus was born to destroy the works of Satan, the Adversary of God and all mankind - John 8:42, John 10:10, 36-38. Satan works to corrupt all human beings - Galatians 6:8, Ephesians 4:22-24 and blind all to the glorious light of the Gospel of Jesus or good news of reconciliation with God through Jesus, appointed and confirmed the Messiah of God & Lord of the Cosmos since the day of Pentecost - II Corinthians 4:4.
We as ambassadors and ordained servants of Jesus submit the light Jesus is the first and the last redeemer - the only redeemer of mankind - and that he is the only "mediator between God and mankind" - Revelation 1:8, Colossians 1:14, I Timothy 2:5.
We submit the light Jesus fulfilled many prophecies concerning the Messiah of God.
We can thank the Magi who came to see him who was born a king and the exactness of astronomy for being able to pinpoint the exact day and place Jesus was born. Wordlight research reveals Jesus was born on Tishri 1, September 11, 3 B.C. We have the light of Levitus 23 showing us the Feast of Tabernacles. Tishri in Leviticus 23: 23-25 is a memorial commemorated with the blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation. This blowing of the trumpets and horns on Tishri 1 was also part of the coronation ceremony for a new king! We have light from II Kings 11:12-14 that all the people of the land rejoiced when the king was crowned, and there was blowing of trumpets! The reign of King David began on Tishri 1, marking the occasion as the beginning of a new civil year. Josephus the Judean (Jewish) historian who wrote the "War of the Jews" - gives us the light that Tishri 1 during the time Jesus was born marked the beginning of a new year for business and agriculture.
Tishri 1 is regarded as the Jewish New Year's Day! On this day at the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem to celebrate the memorial of Jehovah God as King over all as the One True God, trumpets and horns were blown the entire day!
The star the Magi observed and followed in its course in the heavens pinpointed for them the time and place of the birth of a "King". The Magi or wisemen were convinced by the movement of the stars that a king was being born in "Judea". Research reveals that on August 12, 3 B.C, at 5 pm, Jupiter and Venus came into conjunction. Jupiter is regarded as the "King" planet and Venus expresses the "Bright and Morning Star" - a title of the Messiah of God. We submit the light Jesus is the only King-Priest in the history of the world - and that he forgave people their sins against God. We have the light the conjunction of Jupiter and Venus took place in Leo, designated for Judah as the sign of the lion. Wordlight research reveals the light of Genesis 49. The prophecy that the Messiah of God was to come from Judah as the "King" of Israel.
Wordlight research reveals the light the Magi who came seeking a new born "King" were descendants of a group whom were taught the meaning of the stars according to the blessings given to the children of Israel as their "Birthright". We have the light this biblical astronomy was taught the Magi by the prophet Daniel when he was Ain capitivity in Babylonia. We have the light of Daniel 5:11 that Daniel was "Master of the Magi,astrologers, Chaldeans and Soothsayers".
The Magi faithful to the light given by Daniel had during the time of the birth of Jesus the knowlege of the stars and it was this knowledge that prompted them to travel to find the "King of the Judeans" - Matthew 2:1-2. The Magi saw according to astronomical tables a massing of planets in conjunction with Leo on August 27, 2 B.C. In conjunction were Jupiter and Mars with Mercury and Venus and this conjunction signified to them the birth of a Messiah King. Regulus is known as the brightest star of the constellation Leo. this strongly convinced the Magi a "King" was being born in the time-frame of the prophecy of Daniel. Regulus is called the "King" star!
The light of the Scriptures shows us the events between the witness of the Magi to King Herod concerning the birth of a "King" - which was at least a year from the time they first observed the evidence of the imminent birth of a "KIng" and left their homeland to confirm this birth and the movement of the planets they observed as they traveled points to the time of the birth of the Messiah of God being in September, 3. B.C. , with the conjunction of Jupiter the "King" planet and Regulus the "King" star. The day of the birth of Jesus is pinpointed as September 11, 3 B.C.
The light given us about Jesus in Revelation 12 shows us the sun and moon activity occurred between 6:18pm and 7:39pm Israeli time in which Virgo, the woman, was clothed with the sun and the moon rested under her feet. On this day, Jupiter and Regulus came into conjunction just before dawn. Chronological charts show September 11, 3 B.C. was on a Wednesday. On that evening at 6pm began the first day of Tishri. The Hebrew calendar proves that the new year begins on the evening that the new moon appears. This gives us conclusive evidence Jesus was born on September 11, 3 B.C. between 6:18pm and 7:39pm on the first day of Tishri: the first day of the Feast of Taberacles - The Day of Atonement!
The "star" of the Messiah of God - the planet Jupiter - confirmed to the Magi that Bethlehem was indeed the city of the birth of the Messiah after they left Jerusalem.. The Magi saw the planet before them. The planet was progressing toward the meridian or horizon shortly before sunrise. It is a consensus among scholars that the Magi saw the planet Jupiter over Bethlehem between December 4, 2 B.C., and early January, 1 B.C. This coincides with the death of Herod and gives us the light how the Magi or "wisemen" saw a young child in a "house" according to Matthew 2:9.
We have the light of the prophecy of Micah 5:2 that Bethlehem was to be the birth place of the "Messiah of God". Wordlight research and astronomy reveals the Magi whom were faithful in looking for the signs of the one to be born a "king" were rewarded for their diligence and their journey gives us the proof that Jesus was indeed born in the city of Bethlehem.
We submit that Jesus is the Messiah of God in that he fulfilled the prophecy of Daniel concerning the coming of the messiah to the exact day. We submit that at the time Jesus was crucified that the Sanhedrin leaders were strongly convinced Jesus was the Messiah of God when he fulfilled the prophecy of Daniel on the day he rode into Jerusalem upon a donkey and was hailed as a king by the people. They wanted Jesus to prove he was really the Messiah of God by forcing him to prove it by saving himself from death by crucifixion and delivering the nation of Israel from the oppression of the Romans.
We submit the light Jesus gave his life to deliver all mankind from the oppression of Satan.
We submit the light that in the course of human events the One True God is going to send His only begotten son Jesus back to earth. This is known as the "second coming". Before he returns there will be many signs in the heavens and the earth - Matthew 24:29-31. Angels will announce his coming and gather together the nation of Israel. When he comes "every eye shall see" Jesus coming back to earth - Matthew 24:30, Revelation 1:7. When Jesus returns as "King of Kings" and "Lord of Lords", he will fulfill the "Covenants of God" and complete his role as the Messiah of Mankind. Amen.
