Mathew 1:23

"Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which means, "God is with us."

See the Celtic Cross depicted in the Heavenly Star.

SHEM : (SHEMITES. Adamic Lineage) The White Race used an Ancient Symbol of their White Adamic Lineage. The eternal spiral or circle.(Eternal Circle of Divine Light and the Universe.).

After the crucifixion...the cross began to symbolize the Savior's Sacrifice.

The childhood life of the Virgin Mary from the Protoevangelium of St. James.


1 In the histories of the twelve tribes of Israel it is written that there was one Ioacim, exceeding rich: and he offered his gifts twofold, saying: That which is of my superfluity shall be for the whole people, and that which is for my forgiveness shall be for tile Lord, for a propitiation unto me.

2 Now the great day of the Lord drew nigh and the children of Israel offered their gifts. And Reuben stood over against him saying: It is not lawful for thee to offer thy gifts first,-forasmuch as thou hast gotten no seed in Israel.

3 And Ioacim was sore grieved, and went unto the record of the twelve tribes of the people, saying: I will look upon the record of the twelve tribes of Israel, whether I only have not gotten seed in Israel. And he searched, and found concerning all the righteous that they had raised up seed in Israel. And he remembered the patriarch Abraham, how in the last days God gave him a son, even Isaac.

4 And Ioacim was sore grieved, and showed not himself to his wife, but betook himself into the wilderness, and pitched his tent there, and fasted forty days and forty nights, saying within himself: I will not go down either for meat or for drink until the Lord my God visit me, and my prayer shall be unto me meat and drink.
II
1 Now his wife Anna lamented with two lamentations, and bewailed herself with two bewailings, saying: I will bewail my widowhood, and I will bewail my childlessness.

2 And the great day of the Lord drew nigh, and Judith her handmaid said unto her: How long humblest thou thy soul? The great day of the Lord hath come, and it is not lawful for thee to mourn: but take this headband, which the mistress of my work gave me, and it is not lawful for me to put it on, forasmuch as I am an handmaid, and it hath a mark of royalty. And Anna said: Get thee from me. Lo! I have not done such things and the Lord hath greatly humbled me: peradventure one gave it to thee in subtilty, and thou art come to make me partaker in thy sin. And Judith said: How shall I curse thee, seeing the Lord hath shut up thy womb, to give thee no fruit in Israel?

3 And Anna was sore grieved and mourned with a great mourning because she was reproached by all the tribes of Israel. And coming to herself she said: What shall I do? I will pray with weeping unto the Lord my God that he visit me. And she put off her mourning garments and adorned her head and put on her bridal garments: and about the ninth hour she went down into the garden to walk there. And she saw a laurel-tree and sat down underneath it and besought the Lord saying: O God of our fathers, bless me, and hearken unto my prayer, as thou didst bless the womb of Sarah, and gavest her a son, even Isaac.
III
1 And looking up to the heaven she espied a nest of sparrows in the laurel-tree, and made a lamentation within herself, saying: Woe unto me, who begat me? And what womb brought me forth for I am become a curse before the children of Israel, and I am reproached, and they have mocked me forth out of the temple of the Lord?

2 Woe unto me, unto what am I likened? I am not likened unto the fowls of the heaven, for even the fowls of the heaven are fruitful before thee, O Lord. Woe unto me, unto what am I likened? I am not likened unto the beasts of the earth, for even the beasts of the earth are fruitful before thee, O Lord. Woe unto me, unto what am I likened? I am not likened unto these waters, for even these waters are fruitful before thee, O Lord.

3 Woe unto me, unto what am I likened ? I am not likened unto this earth, for even this earth bringeth forth her fruits in due season and blesseth thee, O Lord.
IV
1 And behold an angel of the Lord appeared, saying unto her: Anna, Anna, the Lord hath hearkened unto thy prayer, and thou shalt conceive and bear, and thy seed shall be spoken of in the whole world. And Anna said: As the Lord my God liveth, if I bring forth either male or female, I will bring it for a gift unto the Lord my God, and it shall be ministering unto him all the days of its life.

2 And behold there came two messengers saying unto her: Behold Ioacim thy husband cometh with his flocks: for an angel of the Lord came down unto him saying: Ioacim, Ioacim, the Lord God hath hearkened unto thy prayer. Get thee down hence, for behold thy wife Anna hath conceived.

3 And Ioacim sat him down and called his herdsmen saying: Bring me hither ten lambs without blemish and without spot, and they shall be for the Lord my God; and bring me twelve tender calves, and they shall be for the priests and for the assembly of the elders; and an hundred kids for the whole people.

4 And behold Ioacim came with his flocks, and Anna stood at the gate and saw Ioacim coming, and ran and hung upon his neck, saying: Now know I that the Lord God hath greatly blessed me: for behold the widow is no more a widow, and she that was childless shall conceive. And Ioacim rested the first day in his house.


1 And on the morrow he offered his gifts, saying in himself: If the Lord God be reconciled unto me, the plate that is upon the forehead of the priest will make it manifest unto me. And Ioacim offered his gifts and looked earnestly upon the plate of the priest when he went up unto the altar of tile Lord, and he saw no sin in himself. And Ioacim said: Now know I that the Lord is become propitious unto me and hath forgiven all my sins. And he went down from the temple of the Lord justified, and went unto his house.

2 And her months were fulfilled, and in the ninth month Anna brought forth. And she said unto the midwife: what have I brought forth? And she said: A female. And Anna said: My soul is magnified this day, and she laid herself down. And when the days were fulfilled, Anna purified herself and gave suck to the child and called her name Mary.

VI
1 And day by day the child waxed strong, and when she was six months old her mother stood her upon the ground to try if she would stand; and she walked seven steps and returned unto her bosom. And she caught her up, saying: As the Lord my God liveth, thou shalt walk no more upon this ground, until I bring thee into the temple of the Lord. And she made a sanctuary in her bed chamber and suffered nothing common or unclean to pass through it. And she called for the daughters of the Hebrews that were undefiled, and they carried her hither and thither.

2 And the first year of the child was fulfilled, and Ioacim made a great feast and bade the priests and the scribes and the assembly of the elders and the whole people of Israel. And Ioacim brought the child to the priests, and they blessed her, saying: O God of our fathers, bless this child and give her a name renowned for ever among all generations. And all the people said: So be it, so be it. Amen. And he brought her to the high priests, and they blessed her, saying: O God of the high places, look upon this child, and bless her with the last blessing which hath no successor.

3 And her mother caught her up into the sanctuary of her bed chamber and gave her suck.

And Anna made a song unto the Lord God, saying:

I will sing an hymn unto the Lord my God, because he hath visited me and taken away from me the reproach of mine enemies, and the Lord hath given me a fruit of his righteousness, single and manifold before him. Who shall declare unto the sons of Reuben that Anna giveth suck? Hearken, hearken, ye twelve tribes of Israel, that Anna giveth suck. And she laid the child to rest in the bed chamber of her sanctuary, and went forth and ministered unto them. And when the feast was ended, they gat them down rejoicing, and glorifying the God of Israel.
VII
1 And unto the child her months were added: and the child became two years old. And Ioacim said: Let us bring her up to the temple of the Lord that we may pay the promise which we promised; lest the Lord require it of us, and our gift become unacceptable. And Anna said: Let us wait until the third year, that the child may not long after her father or mother. And Ioacim said: Let us wait.

2 And the child became three years old, and Ioacim said: Call for the daughters of the Hebrews that are undefiled, and let them take every one a lamp, and let them be burning, that the child turn not backward and her heart be taken captive away from the temple of the Lord. And they did so until they were gone up into the temple of the Lord.

And the priest received her and kissed her and blessed her and said: The Lord hath magnified thy name among all generations: in thee in the latter days shall the Lord make manifest his redemption unto the children of Israel. And he made her to sit upon the third step of the altar. And the Lord put grace upon her and she danced with her feet and all tile house of Israel loved her.

VIII
1 And her parents gat them down marveling, and praising the Lord God because tile child was not turned away backward.

And Mary was in the temple of the Lord as a dove that is nurtured: and she received food from the hand of an angel.

2 And when she was twelve years old, there was a council of the priests, saying: Behold Mary is become twelve years old in the temple of the Lord. What then shall we do with her ? lest she pollute the sanctuary of the Lord. And they said unto the high priest: Thou standest over the altar of the Lord. Enter in and pray concerning her: And whatsoever the Lord shall reveal to thee, that let us do.

3 And the high priest took the vestment with the twelve bells and went in unto the Holy of Holies and prayed concerning her. And lo, an angel of tile Lord appeared saying unto him: Zacharias, Zacharias~ go forth and assemble them that are widowers of the people, and let them bring every man a rod, and to whomsoever the Lord shall show a sign, his wife shall she be. And the heralds went forth over all the country round about Judaea, and the trumpet of the Lord sounded, and all men ran thereto.
IX
1 And Joseph cast down his axe and ran to meet them, and when they were gathered together they went to the high priest and took their rods with them. And he took the rods of them all and went into the temple and prayed. And when he had finished the prayer he took the rods and went forth and gave them back to them: and there was no sign upon them. But Joseph received the last rod: and lo, a dove came forth of the rod and flew upon the bead of Joseph. And the priest said unto Joseph: Unto thee hath it fallen to take the virgin of the Lord and keep her for thyself.

2 And Joseph refused, saying: I have sons, and I am an old man, but she is a girl: lest I became a laughing-stock to the children of Israel. And the priest said unto Joseph: Year the Lord thy God, and remember what things God did unto Dathan and Abiram and Korah, how the earth clave and they were swallowed up because of their gainsaying. And now fear thou, Joseph, lest it be so in thine house. And Joseph was afraid, and took her to keep her for himself. And Joseph said unto Mary: Lo, I have received thee out of the temple of the Lord: and now do I leave thee in my house, and I go away to build my buildings and I will come again unto thee. The Lord shall watch over thee.
X
1 Now there was a council of the priests, and they said: Let us make a veil for the temple of the Lord. And the priest said: Call unto me pure virgins of the tribe of David. And the officers departed and sought and found seven virgins. And the priests called to mind the child Mary, that she was of the tribe of avid and was undefiled before God: and the officers went and fetched her. And they brought them into the temple of the Lord, and the priest said: Cast me lots, which of you shah weave the gold and the undefiled (the white) and tile fine linen and the silk and the hyacinthine, and the scarlet and the true purple. And the lot of the true purple and the scarlet fell unto Mary, and she took them and went unto her house.

And at that season Zacharias became dumb, and Samuel was in his stead until the time when Zacharias spake again. But Mary took the scarlet and began to spin it.

XI
1 And she took the pitcher and went forth to fill it with water: and lo a voice saying: Hail, thou that art highly favoured; the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.

And she looked about her upon the right hand and upon the left, to see whence this voice should be: and being filled with trembling she~ went to her house and set down the pitcher, and took the purple and sat down upon her seat and drew out the thread.

2 And behold an angel of the Lord stood before her saying: Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace before the Lord of all things, and thou shalt conceive of his word. And she, when she heard it, questioned in herself, saying: Shall I verily conceive of the living God, and bring forth after the manner of all women? And the angel of the Lord said: Not so, Mary, for a power of the Lord shall overshadow thee: wherefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of the Highest. And thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins. And Mary said: Behold the handmaid of the Lord is before him: be it unto me according to thy word.

1 And she made the purple and the scarlet and brought them unto the priest. And the priest blessed her and said: Mary, the Lord God hath magnified thy name, and thou shalt be blessed among all generations of the earth.

2 And Mary rejoiced and went away unto Elizabeth her kinswoman: and she knocked at the door. And Elizabeth when she heard it cast down the scarlet and ran to the door and opened it, and when she saw Mary she blessed her and said: Whence is this to me that the mother of my Lord should come unto me? for behold that which is in me leaped and blessed thee. And Mary forgot the mysteries which Gabriel the archangel had told her, and she looked up unto the heaven and said: Who am I, Lord, that all the generations of the earth do bless me?

3 And she abode three months with Elizabeth, and day by day her womb grew: and Mary was afraid and departed unto her house and hid herself from the children of Israel. Now she was sixteen years old when these mysteries came to pass.

1 Now it was the sixth month with her, and behold Joseph came from his building, and he entered into his house and found her great with child. And he smote his face, and cast himself down upon the ground on sackcloth and wept bitterly, saying: With what countenance shall I look unto the Lord my God? and what prayer shall I make concerning this maiden? for I received her out of the temple of the Lord my God a virgin, and have not kept her safe. Who is he that hath ensnared me? Who hath done this evil in mine house and hath defiled the virgin? Is not the story of Adam repeated in me ? for as at the hour of his giving thanks the serpent came and found Eve alone and deceived her, so hath it befallen me also.

2 And Joseph arose from off the sackcloth and called Mary and said unto her O thou that wast cared for by God, why hast thou done this? thou hast forgotten the Lord thy God. Why hast thou humbled thy soul, thou that wast nourished up in the Holy of Holies and didst receive food at the hand of an angel?

3 But she wept bitterly, saying: I am pure and I know not a man. And Joseph said unto her: Whence then is that which is in thy womb ? and she said: As the Lord my God liveth, I know not whence it is come unto me.
XIV
I And Joseph was sore afraid and ceased from speaking unto her (or left her alone), and pondered what he should do with her. And Joseph said: If I hide her sin, I shall be found fighting against the law of the Lord: and if I manifest her unto the children of Israel, I fear lest that which is in her be the seed of an angel, and I shall be found delivering up innocent blood to the judgement of death. What then shall I do ? I will let her go from me privily. And the night came upon him.

2 And behold an angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying: Fear not this child, for that which is in her is of the Holy Ghost, and she shall bear a son and thou shalt call his name Jesus, for he shall save his people from their sins. And Joseph arose from sleep and glorified the God of Israel which had shown this favour unto her: and he watched over her.
XV
I Now Annas the scribe came unto him and said to him: Wherefore didst thou not appear in our assembly? and Joseph said unto him: I was weary with the journey, and I rested the first day. And Annas turned him about and saw Mary great with child.

2 And he went hastily to the priest and said unto him: Joseph, to whom thou bearest witness [that he is righteous] hath sinned grievously. And the priest said: Wherein ? And he said: The virgin whom he received out of the temple of the Lord, he hath defiled her, and married her by stealth (lit. stolen her marriage), and hath not declared it to the children of Israel. And the priest answered and said: Hath Joseph done this? And Annas the scribe said: Send officers, and thou shalt find the virgin great with child. And the officers went and found as he had said, and they brought her together with Joseph unto the place of judgement.

3 And the priest said: Mary, wherefore hast thou done this, and wherefore hast thou humbled thy soul and forgotten the Lord thy God, thou that wast nurtured in the Holy of Holies and didst receive food at the hand of an angel and didst hear the hymns and didst dance before the Lord, wherefore hast thou done this?

But she wept bitterly, saying: As the Lord my God liveth I am pure before him and I know not a man.

4 And the priest said unto Joseph: Wherefore hast thou done this? And Joseph said: As the Lord my God liveth I am pure as concerning her. And the priest said: Bear no false witness but speak the truth: thou hast married her by stealth and hast not declared it unto the children of Israel, and hast not bowed thine head under the mighty hand that thy seed should be blessed. And Joseph held his peace.
XVI
1 And the priest said: Restore the virgin whom thou didst receive out of the temple of the Lord. And Joseph was full of weeping. And the priest said: I will give you to drink of the water of the conviction of the Lord, and it will make manifest your sins before your eyes.

2 And the priest took thereof and made Joseph drink and sent him into the hill-country. And he returned whole. He made Mary also drink and sent her into the hill-country. And she returned whole. And all the people marvelled, because sin appeared not in them.

3 And the priest said: If the Lord God hath not made your sin manifest, neither do I condemn you. And he let them go. And Joseph took Mary and departed unto his house rejoicing, and glorifying the God of Israel.

Why Bethlehem? The City of David

http://www.cbn.com/special/thenativitymovie/articles/whybethlehem.aspx (http://www.cbn.com/special/thenativitymovie/articles/whybethlehem.aspx)

"The bawling of sheep rang across the fields of Bethlehem. Migdal Eder, the Tower of the Flock, was the place where lambs destined for the Temple were born and raised. Every firstborn male lamb from the area around Bethlehem was considered holy, set aside for sacrifice in Jerusalem. Generations of hereditary shepherds tended the sacred flocks. They were common folk, used to many cold, lonely nights in the fields. As protectors of the sheep, they risked their lives to keep the animals from going astray ... and falling into the many ravines of the hill country.
After pouring their lives out into their flocks, the shepherds would separate the lambs, choosing only the perfect firstborn males to drive to Jerusalem. There the lambs would be purchased by those who wished to atone for their sins. On the same mountain where Abraham had offered his son to the Lord, the lambs would shed their blood and lose their lives as that atonement. It was an endless cycle."

So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5 He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born.

To all Christians, & in all charity:

In honor of our Lord Jesus' birth, I think it is fit to expound somewhat on Christ's birth and what it means for us today and in the future. First, the timing of Jesus Christ's birth, is misunderstood by many these days, but still, though that's not a "ship-sinker" by any stretch, yet it is good to know for several reasons which I will present shortly.

As some know, Jesus Christ did not enter this world in late December, which is the "classic" time appointed to this most wonderful occurrence in man's world. Actually, Christ was born in the fall or autumn time, when the shepherds were still keeping their flocks by night, and this is significant because there is a very important feast our ancestors celebrated every fall season. This "feast of Jehovah (the LORD)", the God of Israel, is called "Tabernacles", and is outlined clearly in the twenty-third chapter of Leviticus, verses thirty-three through forty-four (quoted here is thirty-three through thirty-six, and thirty-nine through forty-four):

"And JEHOVAH spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto JEHOVAH. On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein. Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto JEHOVAH: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto JEHOVAH: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein..."

"Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto JEHOVAH seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath. And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before JEHOVAH your God seven days. And ye shall keep it a feast unto JEHOVAH seven days in the year. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month. Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths: That your generations may know that I made the children of Israel to dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am JEHOVAH your God. And Moses declared unto the children of Israel the feasts of JEHOVAH."

So we see the historical and cultural importance of this particular "feast of JEHOVAH". Note that Tabernacles is not called a "feast of the Jews", but is called a "feast of JEHOVAH", and the same is true for all the other feasts of JEHOVAH listed in this chapter of Leviticus. Also, note that it is a "statute for ever in your generations", meaning that the feast of Tabernacles is to be kept for as long as we are on the earth....and even after that.

One may ask, When is the seventh month? According to the Hebrew calendar, the first month is the month Abib (literally "spring"), and is usually during the Gregorian calendar's "April". Counting down from April, which is Abib, you'll land on October, which is the seventh month on the Hebrew calendar. The seventh month of the Hebrew's calendar was called Ethanim (meaning "strong"; perhaps in reference to "strong rains", according to Wikipedia). The feast of tabernacles occurred during the month Ethanim, which falls between late September to mid-October on the Gregorian calendar.

Notice also that the feast of tabernacles will be celebrated in the kingdom of Christ as well (Zechariah 14:16-21):

"And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts [i.e. "JEHOVAH Sabaoth"], and to keep the feast of tabernacles. And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith JEHOVAH will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO JEHOVAH; and the pots in JEHOVAH'S house shall be like the bowls before the altar. Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto JEHOVAH Sabaoth: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of JEHOVAH Sabaoth."

So it is clear that the feast of Tabernacles is here to stay. Now how is the feast of Tabernacles related to our Lord Jesus Christ's birth? In answering this, recall the prophecy of Christ in Isaiah 7:14:

"Therefore the LORD himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel." (also, Matthew 1:23)

Very familiar to most people is "Emmanuel", which means, "God with us". This is a major clue as to when Christ was born. Let's go to the book of Revelation.

We read in Revelation 21:1-3,

"And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saving, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and he their God."

Now we see in Revelation another vision like to that of Zechariah's (14:16-21). In plainly states, "the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them". Recall what Emmanuel means. "God with us" was fulfilled when JESUS CHRIST the Son of God was born of a virgin, as the prophet said; but once again, in the future, in the Kingdom of God, God Himself will be amongst us again. The word tabernacle is the Greek skene (pronounced, "skay-nay"), and is used only twenty times in the New Testament, nineteen of which as "tabernacle" and one time as "habitation".

The important point to glean here is that there is a connection between the feast of Tabernacles and the promise of the Lord Christ and God dwelling with us and amongst us, as Emmanuel ("God with us") shows.

In addition to this strong connection, there also is the fact that the shepherds were outside on the night of Jesus' birth (Luke 2:8-20).

Now take a note of this:

And this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6YOtG0JMWE

In celebrating our Lord's birth, it is very important that we do not incorporate customs of the heathen. One such custom is that of taking an evergreen tree and setting it up and "decking" it with ornaments, as we can clearly see from Jeremiah 10:1-5:

"Hear ye the word which JEHOVAH speaketh unto you, O house of Israel: Thus saith JEHOVAH, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good."

Of course, being subject to "exact times" and "dates" can get excessive (Galatians 4:8-10 and Colossians 2:14-17), so the important thing for us Christians is to maintain godliness and to keep the ways of the heathen out of our lives. My chief aim here is to share some truth about the most wonderful gift God gave to us: our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ the Son of God. Let our hearts and minds be established in God our Father in heaven, and putting our trust in Jesus Christ, let the holy Spirit of Christ guide us into more truth (I John 2:26-29).

All Hail the Lord Jesus Christ!

I appreciate the information that Nationalist Movement has given to me concerning not following the ways of paganism. His words are true and righteous! The words give me great appreciation for all the Christians out there who are trying to do what is right and trying to understand what is right and true!

From the time of my earliest childhood memories my family had a glorious Christmas Tree adorned with starry and angelic ornaments. We would gather around the tree and sing Christmas Songs of praise to Emmanuel "Silent Night", Away in a Manger, Christ Child, etc.. We would tell the story of Jesus and have family prayer. Christmas time was my birthday and I always thought that God must love me more than others because he gave me a day to celebrate my birth at the same time the world was celebrating HIS birth. Now.... I understand the Dec. 25th is not the Savior's birthday...it is the anniversary of the First Christmas. The First Christmas was when the wise men finally arrived to openly acknowledge the child was Messiah.

Back To MY Christmas Tree !

I lay awake in the quiet dark wondering about whether or not my Christmas Tree was a symbol of Paganism. Here is the Conclusion I arrived at:

Acts 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein,

My tree is one of Jehovah's Holy Creations. My tree belongs to Jehovahs and has belonged to him from the foundations of the earth for he is the only true and Living God!

It is an abomination for men to use one of God's Holy creations to glorify false Gods...that is what the pagans did and we must not follow the ways of the pagans...... for all God's creations declare the Glory of Jehovah alone.

When I see that what once was used to glorify false Gods is now used to Glorify Jesus I must inevitable proclaim that Jesus has triumphed over the false for His name alone remains to be glorified in times of joy. His tree has come home to honor it's Creator.

I asked myself this question: When I adorn Jehovah's tree with starry ornaments and heavenly angels in remembrance to Him... does it make me feel closer to my Savior or further from him?

I must inevitably answer that it increases my love for Jesus to adorn my tree and place a Holy Nativity beneath it in remembrance of my Savior. Using Jehovah's tree to glorify Jehovah alone was not at all what the pagans did so it is impossible for me to be following the ways of paganism when my tree glorifies my Savior!

Anything that increases my love for Jesus is a good thing. A tree can symbolize whatever you want it to symbolize...there is no object that has a patent on any "symbol."

Some people drink wine to get drunk, fornicate and commit adultery. Christians drink wine to remember the blood of Christ. The wine itself is not evil or good. The intent inside our heart when wine is used is what is evil or good.

MY Christmas tree is Jehovah's tree and my tree will always be used to glorify it's own Creator. I don't know what other people will use a tree to "symbolize" but MY CHRISTMAS TREE will always symbolize Glory to God in the Highest! I shamelessly declare it to the world for Jehovah is One True Living God.

The Shepherds and the Angels

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.


9
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them; and they were sore afraid.


10
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.


11
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.


12
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.


13
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,


14
Glory to God in the highest,





and on earth peace,


good will toward men.








15
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.


16
And they came with haste, and found Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.


17
And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.


18
And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.


19
But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.


20
And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

Isaiah;

"The people walking in darkness shall see a great light. ON those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned;A child is born....he will reign on David's Throne. Establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this."

Matthew 2:1-11

King James Version (KJV)

2 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

The Use of Biblical Astronomy in Prophetic Themes
In biblical symbolism, Regulus is the Star of the Messiah. It is located directly between the feet of the Lion in the constellation of Leo. Moses even prophesied that Judah (the Lion) would have a “lawgiver from [ruling staff] between his feet until Shiloh come.” 12 (http://www.askelm.com/star/star004.htm#_edn12)Alfred Jeremias back in 1911 showed that this prophecy referred to the star Regulus (the star of rulership). 13 (http://www.askelm.com/star/star004.htm#_edn13) This was also shown by Roger W. Sinnott in his article in Sky and Telescope. 14 (http://www.askelm.com/star/star004.htm#_edn14)
There can hardly be a doubt that this determination of Sinnott and Jeremias is correct. It has always been known that the major star Regulus, which was situated practically on the ecliptic of the Sun, was between the Lion’s paws. Indeed, Regulus was (and still is) positioned precisely where the prophecy placed it: “between the feet” of Leo (the Lion). Note the following diagram.


http://www.askelm.com/star/images/star004a.gif
Diagram courtesy of Sky and Telescope.

Leo was the constellation assigned to Judah. When it is realized that Regulus was recognized by the early Jews as the Star of the Messiah, we can then symbolically apply some significant astronomical occurrences in the year 3 to 2 B.C. that involved Regulus and the planet Jupiter.

The Impressive Signs of 3/2 B.C.
The astronomical displays were not over for that significant year. On August 27, 2 B.C. (72 days after the spectacular Jupiter/Venus reunion), there occurred the extremely close conjunction of Jupiter with Mars (the planet of war), while Venus and Mercury homed in on them in an unusual massing of four planets. Jupiter was located at 142.6 degrees, Mars 142.64, Venus 141.67 and Mercury 143.71. Such closeness in the pre-dawn skies would have given astrologers much to talk about, especially when the other events of the year were connected with it.

Sarah Palin defends the right for Christians to celebrate Christmas publicly and stop Jews and Muslims from implicating a double standard against Christ being celebrated publicly. Example: Speaking "Merry Christmas" instead of "Happy Holidays".

http://www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/2fd340545e3f92e6af46d07ec568e10596b598d3/c=287-203-2954-2212&r=x404&c=534x401/local/-/media/USATODAY/USATODAY/2013/11/10/1384120144000-palin.jpg

ASHEVILLE, N.C. — Before Ted Cruz burst on the national political scene, there was Sarah Palin.
After Ted Cruz, is there still much of a place for her?
Sarah Palin, 49, is the original hero of the Tea Party, rallier of the right wing and basher of Barack Obama. But it has been five years since she gained a place in the history books as John McCain's surprise choice of running mate on the Republican presidential ticket. Four years since she unexpectedly resigned as Alaska governor before her term was up. Two years since she bypassed the chance to jump into the 2012 GOP presidential primaries.
In her first interview about her new book, Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas, she bristles a bit when asked whether she has been supplanted by a new generation of Tea Party favorites making today's headlines. Some of them are tying Congress in knots, and others are running for their second terms as governor.

The Wise Men Visit Jesus2 Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea. This happened while Herod was king of Judea.
After Jesus’ birth, Wise Men from the east came to Jerusalem. 2 They asked, “Where is the child who has been born to be king of the Jews? When we were in the east, we saw his star. Now we have come to worship him.”
3 When King Herod heard about it, he was very upset. Everyone in Jerusalem was troubled too. 4 So Herod called together all the chief priests of the people. He also called the teachers of the law. He asked them where the Christ was going to be born.
5 “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied. “This is what the prophet has written. He said,
6 “‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
are certainly not the least important among the towns of Judah.
A ruler will come out of you.
He will be the shepherd of my people Israel.’” (Micah 5:2 (http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mic.5.2&version=NIRV))

7 Then Herod called for the Wise Men secretly. He found out from them exactly when the star had appeared. 8 He sent them to Bethlehem. He said, “Go! Make a careful search for the child. As soon as you find him, bring me a report. Then I can go and worship him too.”
9 After the Wise Men had listened to the king, they went on their way. The star they had seen when they were in the east went ahead of them. It finally stopped over the place where the child was. 10 When they saw the star, they were filled with joy.
11 The Wise Men went to the house. There they saw the child with his mother Mary. They bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures. They gave him gold, incense and myrrh.
12 But God warned them in a dream not to go back to Herod. So they returned to their country on a different road.

Old Glory that last pic you posted of Breckenridge is beautiful, that is my favorite ski town in CO.

Thank You for that Fire cap! I can't help but think only white people would come up with ideas like skiiing. Amerindians never did. I live in the rockies yet I have never been skiing. I would love to do that; Mostly I snow mobile or snow tube. I love the unique dry powdery snow that is here in the Rockies. It makes it perfect for skiing and just fun snow play....not wet or slushy like most everywhere else.

Recipe for a FRUIT CAKE !

RECIPE FOR FRUIT CAKE

14 ounces sweetened flaked coconut
8 ounces chopped sugar rolled dates
16 ounces pecan pieces
8 ounces candied cherries
8 ounces diced candied pineapple
2 (14 ounce) cans sweetened condensed milk
Directions:

1
Place coconut, dates, and pecan pieces in a very large (7 quart or larger) bowl. With your hands break up chunks of dates & coconut, and stir those 3 ingredients together.
2
Add the cherries, pineapple, and sweetened condensed milk. Stir thoroughly. (I wear non-powdered surgical gloves, and stir it with my hands because the mixture is very stiff.).
3
Let set at room temperature while you prepare the pans. Spray 2 - 9"x5" loaf pans with Pam. Line the pans with waxed (or parchment) paper. (We cut parchment paper in 4 1/4"x 16 1/4" strips for this. You want the paper to come up past the short sides of the pans after the mixture is packed into the pans.) Now spray the paper (after you've pressed it into the pans) with Pam.
4
Stir the ingredients well again.Divide the ingredients equally between the 2 loaf pans.
5
Pack VERY TIGHTLY and smoothly into the pans. (I wet my hands & press, pack down, & smooth top, using both hands. Wetting your hands keeps them from sticking to "batter".).
6
Place the pans on the middle rack of the oven and bake at 300 degrees F for 1 hour, or until lightly browned. (If the cakes have baked for an hour, or look a little brown around the edges, take them out of the oven & lift edges of paper a little to see if sides look brown enough. If they're brown on sides, but not on top, you may broil the tops for a few minutes-watch carefully.).
7
Remove cakes from oven and let cool for 10 minutes in the pans.
8
Gently lift the edges of the paper a couple of times on each side - kind of a rocking motion. (Sometimes I have to run a sharp knife down the edges of the pan.) Turn pans upside down onto a paper-lined cookie sheet. Lift pans from the cakes. Remove paper from bottom of cakes IMMEDIATELY.
9
Let cool completely. Place in a large container (don't wrap yet) and refrigerate overnight.

Honey Caramel Corn



Ingredients

Popcorn, organic (1 cup unpopped)
Coconut oil (1/3 cup) — where to buy coconut oil (http://www.cheeseslave.com/resources/#coconut)
Honey, raw and local if possible, or you can use maple syrup, sucanat or palm sugar (1/4 – 1/3 cup) — where to buy honey (http://www.cheeseslave.com/resources/#sweeteners)
Butter, unsalted, from grass-fed cows (1/4 cup)
Sea salt (A few pinches — to taste)
Equipment

1. Put the popcorn and coconut oil in a large stockpot.
2. Turn the heat up to high and put the lid on.
3. After a few minutes, the popcorn will stop popping. Listen closely and when the pops slow down, remove the pot from the heat. Act quickly and pour the popped popcorn into a large bowl (you might need two bowls). If you leave it in the stockpot, the popcorn at the bottom will get burned.
4. Put the stockpot on low heat and add the — where to buy sea salt (http://www.cheeseslave.com/resources/#salt), honey (http://www.cheeseslave.com/resources/#sweeteners) and butter. Stir until blended and completely melted.
5. Pour the butter/honey blend on the popped popcorn. Toss in a few pinches of — where to buy sea salt (http://www.cheeseslave.com/resources/#salt)sea salt and mix it all together until everything is well-incorporated. If you have trouble getting it mixed together in the bowls, you can put it back into the stockpot to mix it.
6. Serve in bowls.

SOMEWHERE IN MY MEMORY BEAUTIFUL CHRISTMAS SONG

Good King Wenceslas

A carol for the Feast of St Stephen or Boxing Day, with no mention of the Nativity.

Wenceslas was a 10th-century Catholic Duke of Bohemia also known as Vaclav the Good, and was martyred after being assassinated by his wicked brother, Boleslaw the Bad. Wenceslas's remains are interred in St Vitus's cathedral in Prague, and he was recently made patron saint of the Czech Republic. His Saint's Day is September 28.

The verse is the invention of J M Neale (1818-66), and it was first published in 1853.

The charitable giving which the carol promotes is an old part of Boxing Day tradition (now, alas, supplanted by a spree at the first day of the sales). But nobody has ever understood why Neale makes Wenceslas feel impelled to take pine logs to a peasant who already lives next to a forest, nor is it clear what significance should be ascribed to the footprint in the snow mentioned in the last verse.

If you think Jesus being symbolized as a partridge in a pear tree sounds blasphemous, remember:
"Jerusalem! Jerusalem! How often would I have sheltered thee under my wings, as a hen does her chicks, but thou wouldst not have it so." (Luke 13:34 and Matthew 23:34)
The "true love" in the song refers to God Himself.
The "me" receiving the gifts is every Christian.
So that "silly" song we sing at Christmas time has more meaning than we thought.

JOHN 10:11 "I AM THE GOOD SHEPHERD"

THE SHEPHERD'S CANE

Candy Cane

The True Meaning of Christmas

CHRISTMAS STORY SYMBOLS
The development of the candy cane took a few hundred years. Before the invention of the modern pacifier, parents used to give their babies unflavored white sugar sticks to suck on. During the 1670's a German choirmaster had the sugar sticks bent into a shepherd's staff and passed out to children attending the Christmas services. This holiday custom spread throughout Europe and fancy canes, decorated with roses, were used as Christmas decorations in many homes. About 1900 the white candy cane received its traditional red stripes and peppermint flavoring. At the same time the legend of the candy cane came into being. According to this legend, a candy maker in Indiana designed the candy cane to tell the true story of Christmas - a story about a virgin giving birth to a shepherd who would give up His life for the sheep.
The most obvious symbolism used in the candy cane is its shape. Turned one way, it looks like a "J" for Jesus. The newborn Lamb of God was named Jesus, meaning Savior, because He was destined to "save His people from their sins" (Mt 1:21). Turned the other way, candy canes remind us of the shepherd's staff. The first people to hear of Christ's birth were shepherds guarding their flocks at night (Lk 2:8-20). Jesus called Himself the Good Shepherd and the Bible frequently compares the actions of the Messiah to those of a shepherd searching for his lost sheep, feeding them, gently leading them, and carrying them in his bosom (Ps 23; Jn 10:1-18; Is 40:11; Jer 31:10; Micah 5:4; Heb 13:20). The sweetness of the candy reminds us that we are fed on the sweet milk of the Gospel of our salvation and peace (Eph 1:13; 6:15).
The hardness of the candy reminds us that Jesus is our rock of refuge (Deu 32:4, 15, 18; 1 Sam 2:2; 2 Sam 22:32, 47; 23:3; Psa 18:2, 31; 28:1; 92:15; 94:22; 95:1; Is 44:8). In rocky lands like Israel, people often sought shelter from their enemies in the caves or rocky crags of cliffs. Rocks also remind us of the solidness of the promises of Christ who is a precious cornerstone and sure foundation to those who follow Him, but a "stone of stumbling and a rock of offense" to those who reject His gift of peace (1 Pet 2:6-8).
The whiteness of the candy brings to mind the Virgin Birth and the sinless life of Christ (Mt 1:23; Lk 1:34-35). We also are made as pure as the snow through the cleansing action of His blood (Rev 7:9, 14; Is 1:18).
The traditional candy cane has 3 small red stripes to remind us of the soldiers' stripes by which we are healed and a larger stripe which represents the blood shed by Christ on Calvary's tree (Is 53:5; Mt 27:32-50). Some people say that the 3 small stripes honor the Holy Trinity while the larger stripe reminds us of the one true God. Others claim that the small stripes represent our mini-passions or sufferings and the great stripe symbolizes Christ's Passion. A green stripe is sometimes placed on candy canes to remind us that Jesus is God's gift to us. (Green is the color of giving.)
The peppermint flavor of modern candy canes is said to be similar to hyssop. In Old Testament times, hyssop was associated with purification and sacrifice. During the first Passover celebrations, a bundle of hyssop was used to smear the blood of Passover lambs upon the doorposts of houses so that the Angel of Death would pass over their occupants (Ex 12:22). Bundles of hyssop were also used to sprinkle blood on worshipers and objects during Mosaic purification rituals (Ex 24:6-8; Lev 14:4, 49-52). After his affair with Bathsheba, King David appealed to God's mercy crying, "Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me and I shall be whiter than snow" (Ps 51:7). Peppermint reminds us that Jesus is our Passover Lamb (1 Cor 5:7). His blood cleanses us from sin and destroys the power of death (Hosea 13:14; 1 Cor 15:54-57; Heb 2:14-15; Rev 20:6).

You've GOT to try this banana bread recipe! It uses honey and applesauce instead of sugar and oil.

Ingredients

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
3/4 cup honey
2 eggs, beaten
3 mashed overripe bananas

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together applesauce and honey. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.

Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.

Making Easy Fluffy Homemade Marshmallows from Honey

Fluffy Honey Sweetened Marshmallows

Please use caution with the hot syrup you make in the recipe. It can cause severe burns if spilled on skin. This makes about 12-16 smallish marshmallows. Double, if desired and use a 9 by 9 pan.



1 1/2 tbsp. gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
1/2 cup honey
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract


1. Lightly grease a loaf pan. Then cover with parchment paper (with enough to hang over the sides of the pan one way), then grease the parchment paper.
2. Put cup of water in a medium bowl (or in the bowl of a mixer with attached whisk) , and sprinkle the gelatin over the water. Set aside to soften.
3. In a small pot, place the honey, salt, and the other cup of water. Heat on medium heat. Using a candy thermometer, bring the mixture to 240 degrees. (Because this is such a small amount of liquid, I had a hard time getting an accurate temperature. You can also test it by dribbling a little of the liquid into a bowl of ice cold water. It should be in the candy stage of forming little soft balls when cooled in the water and taken out. It takes about 7-8 minutes to reach this temperature. ). Remove from the heat as soon as it’s at the right temperature.
4. Using a hand mixer on low, very carefully mix in the hot syrup into the gelatin mixture by pouring the hot syrup in a drizzle down the side of the bowl. Once it’s all combined, add the vanilla and increase speed to high. Beat for 12- 15 minutes, or until the mixture is thick and fluffy (it will look like marshmallow fluff). Scrap into the prepared pan and leave, uncovered, for 4-12 hours to dry. It’s just about perfect in my climate when left overnight. Cut into squares, serve as is.

THE ESCAPE TO EGYPT

13 After the wise men had gone, an angel from the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, "Get up! Hurry and take the child and his mother to Egypt! Stay there until I tell you to return, because Herod is looking for the child and wants to kill him."
14 That night, Joseph got up and took his wife and the child to Egypt, where they stayed until Herod died. So the Lord's promise cam true, just as the prophet had said, "I called my son out of Egypt."

THE KILLING OF THE CHILDREN

16 When Herod found out that the wise men from the east had tricked him, he was very angry. He gave orders for his men to kill all the boys who lived in or near Bethlehem and were two years old and younger. This was based on what he had learned from the wise men.

17 So the Lord's promise cam true, just as the prophet Jeremiah had said,

18 In Ramah a voice was heard
crying and weeping loudly.
Racheal was mourning for her children,
and she refused to be comforted,
because they were dead."

Who Was King Herod?

King Herod identified himself as Jewish and was considered as such by his contemperies [1], although according to Jewish law, he would not be considered as such.[2] This religious self-identification notwithstanding, the Herodians were to a large extent Hellenistic in culture, which would have earned them the antipathy of observant Jews.[3] He was the second son of Antipater the Idumaean, the Idumeans having been just converted to Judaism by John Hyrcanus, and was founder of the Herodian Dynasty. Herod's mother was Cypros, a princess from Petra in Nabatea (now part of Jordan). The family rubbed shoulders with the great in Rome, such as Pompey, Cassius, and in 47 BC his father was appointed Procurator over Judea, who then appointed his son governor of Galilee at the age of 25.
After his father was poisoned in 43 BC, allegedly by a tax-collector, Herod had the murderer executed. After returning from a campaign, he was offered the betrothal to the teenage princess Mariamne (sometimes spelled Mariamme) from the former Hasmonean dynasty who were the titular rulers of Judaea. Although he was legally permitted to have more than one wife, he banished his first wife Doris and her 3-year-old son, also named Antipater, and married Mariamne (known as Mariamne I). In 40 BC Antigonos and the Parthians invaded Judea, and Herod fled Jerusalem to Rome for the first time. There he was elected "King of the Jews" by the Roman Senate[4]. However Herod did not fully conquer Judea until 37 BC. He ruled for 34 years.

The Genealogy of Jesus Christ

1 The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham:
2 Abraham begot Isaac, Isaac begot Jacob, and Jacob begot Judah and his brothers.3 Judah begot Perez and Zerah by Tamar, Perez begot Hezron, and Hezron begot Ram.4 Ram begot Amminadab, Amminadab begot Nahshon, and Nahshon begot Salmon.5 Salmon begot Boaz by Rahab, Boaz begot Obed by Ruth, Obed begot Jesse, 6 and Jesse begot David the king.
David the king begot Solomon by her who had been the wife[a (http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+1&version=NKJV#fen-NKJV-23151a)] of Uriah. 7 Solomon begot Rehoboam, Rehoboam begot Abijah, and Abijah begot Asa.[b (http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+1&version=NKJV#fen-NKJV-23152b)] 8 Asa begot Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat begot Joram, and Joram begot Uzziah. 9 Uzziah begot Jotham, Jotham begot Ahaz, and Ahaz begot Hezekiah. 10 Hezekiah begot Manasseh, Manasseh begot Amon,[c (http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+1&version=NKJV#fen-NKJV-23155c)]and Amon begot Josiah. 11 Josiah begot Jeconiah and his brothers about the time they were carried away to Babylon.
12 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jeconiah begot Shealtiel, and Shealtiel begot Zerubbabel. 13 Zerubbabel begot Abiud, Abiud begot Eliakim, and Eliakim begot Azor.14 Azor begot Zadok, Zadok begot Achim, and Achim begot Eliud. 15 Eliud begot Eleazar, Eleazar begot Matthan, and Matthan begot Jacob. 16 And Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus who is called Christ.
17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, from David until the captivity in Babylon are fourteen generations, and from the captivity in Babylon until the Christ are fourteen generations.
Christ Born of Mary

18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. 20 But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.21 And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”
22 So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: 23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”
24 Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took to him his wife, 25 and did not know her till she had brought forth her firstborn Son.[d (http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+1&version=NKJV#fen-NKJV-23170d)] And he called His name Jesus.

Incorrect usage of words by modern populations of people.

Biblical understanding has decayed to a point where people do not know the meaning or tribal meaning of the words 'Semite' (Shemite), Jew (Juden), Hebrew, (Eber's/Ebre), Ishraelites (Yis Ra El) Most people including the Khazar Jews think that all of these words mean the same thing. They do not.



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FExIWex_vc

Shemite (Semite) = Descendants of Shem son of Noah -
Shem was the Father with the Patriarchal Blessings of the throne of Adam. Shem's posterity was PURE white and became a great sea faring people. They conquered the mediterranean sea routes taking control of world trade routes and built canals. They built the Egyptian Empires and Persian Empires. These are the "White Aryans" of noble birth that the non religious white generations have called those who came out of Iran. (Arian Nation)

Hebrew - Descendants of Eber / Ebre. Eber was great grand descendant of Shem and was given the Patriarchal blessings of Adam's throne. Many Shemites were not Hebrews and most Hebrews were not Juden.

Abraham - great great grand son of Eber

Sons of Abraham = All of Abraham's descendants from Sarah, Hagar, Keturra, and his concubines.
Abraham was a Shemite and a Hebrew but not a Jew. Abraham gave the Patriarchal blessings to Isaac son of Sarah. Shem also known as Melchezedik of Salem (Jerusalem) gave Abraham who was his great grandson the Patriarchal rights to the throne of Adam.

Isaac - son of Abraham given the Patriarchal blessing and rights to the throne of Adam. Abraham did not want his son to race mix so he sent his servant to bring back a Hebrew woman for him to marry and the servant brought back Isaac's first cousin once removed named Rebecca. Rebecca was a Hebrew.

Esau - Eldest son of Isaac and twin brother of Jacob. Esau murdered a King who had stolen the garmets of Adam to usurp the throne of Adam. Esau fled and then intermarried with the Canaanites (Negroes) He became one of the fathers of the Middle East mix raced brown people also known as Edomites. Jacob's mother was devastated when her son Esau married inter racially. She ensured Isaac's race mixed posterity would never have the patriarchal blessings of the throne of Adam from his dying father who has lost his eye sight and memory.

Jacob - Younger son of Isaac and twin brother to Esau. Jacob married his first cousins Leah and Rachael who were fraternal twin sisters and the daughters of Laban...Rebecca's brother. He also married two other women who appear to also be from the house of Laban. (speculation)


Midian - Father of the Midianites. He was the son of Abraham and Keturra whom were at war with Sara's children. They were ALL descendants of Abraham. Midianites were Shemites and Hebrews, but not Israelites or Jews. Keturra's sons became the great Persian Kings who were white before their children race mixed with the brown desert people often known as Arabics.


Moabites - Moabites were the descendants of Lot who was Abraham's nephew. Lot settled in Moab and Ruth of Moab was one of his descendants. Ruth was a Shemite and a Hebrew but not a Jew or an Israelite. The marriage was not inter racial. The posterity of Lot who did not intermarry with with the Israelites race mixed with the brown desert people commonly known as Arabs.

Jacob was given the name Israel = Yis - Yesu (son)
Ra - Light of Christ // Holy Ghost
El - God

'Israel' in Hebrew means 'Christian' Jacob was given the Patriarchal Prince rights to the Throne of Adam

Israelites - were Christian descendants of Jacob's 12 sons. Some of the Northern Tribes who were not sons of Judah were taken as slaves into Assyria. When Assyria fell they escaped into Persia and then north to the Caucas Mountains. They are also known as the Caucasians or additional White Aryans of noble birth who migrated out of Iran.

Jacobites - were descendants of Jacob

Jacob was given the promise of having a "Chosen" lineage. The lineage was "chosen" to begat the Messiah and the Kingdom of Christ (Christianity) on Earth.

Ishmael - son of Abraham and Hagar. Hagar was contentious against Sarah and Isaac so Abraham separated his wives and took Hagar and her son Ishmael to live in Mecca. Ishmael's children race mixed with the brown desert people and became one of the fathers of the Arabic hybrid races. One of his brown descendants was Muhammad. Ishmael's descendants still keep the tradition of Hagar and fight against Jacobites, Israelites. They are the Muslims/ Moores who stormed from the east to conquer by force Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Persia. They drove the whites out and those once great nations fell into shambles.

A FAMILY DIVIDED:

Juda / Jude - One of the sons of Jacob. He married a Canaanitess. (Negroes and Edomites) This woman and begat 3 mulatto sons. This family was shunned by the white Israelites and not given recognition. They called themselves "Israelites" and claimed to be "chosen" through Jude. They intermarried with the non white Edomites and Arabs. Judah eventually married the Hebrew woman Tamar who had been his daughter in law. She was barren because Juda's mulatto sons had black pride and refused to act as husband to her out of hatred for the white Hebrews. They are 'Anti-Semite' (Anti - Shemite) (Anti - White)

Jude and Tamar begot 1 pure white Shemite Son who was hated by Juda's mulatto children. This one white son intermarried with the Levite women. His descendants became the White Jews. Juda's white sons were promised to sit upon the thrones of YIS RA EL. White Christian Kings.

KHAZARS - Khazars are eastern Eurasians from Khazaria who adopted the Judaic religion and usurped the 'Israelite' identity. When the mongols invaded they fled into white Russia, Germany, and Poland. They are technically hybrid 'yellowish browns' not 'whites'. Modern Khazars desperately seek Judaic identity through a 'gene' which has proven to link them to Negroes, Arabs, and Asians which is exactly the racial mix that they are. The dark gene is not found in the true pure white Shemites/ Caucasians. It is laughable that these mixed race Khazars have adopted the white supremacy religion of the Adamic people and then declare the true Adamic white people who reject them to be "Anti-Semites" (Anti-Whites) . God shuts their eyes to the knowledge of Christ because they were not worthy to be Christians.

RARE TRUE WHITE CHRISTIAN SONS OF JUDA - descendants of King David who followed the Savior. They escaped from the middle east when Jesus was crucified by the Edomite Jews and reunited with their pure white Israelite Brethren in the Celtic Isles.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mathew : 15:22

A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, "Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is suffering terribly from demonic possession."

But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him saying, Send her away, for she crieth after us.

He answered, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel."

The Scottish Declaration of Independence.


http://jahtruth.net/scotdec.gif




In Arbroath Abbey, following the removal of the "Stone of Destiny" to Westminster, king Robert "the Bruce" of Scotland was visited by two emissaries of pope John 22 to whom Edward 2 of England had appealed for help to compel Scotland to acknowledge England's lordship. These emissaries bore a message from the pope advising Bruce to submit to Edward's claims, but Bruce and his nobles drafted a letter which they addressed to pope John 22 and which can still be seen in Register House in Edinburgh. It had attached to it coloured ribbons and seals with the signatures of Robert the Bruce and twenty-five of his nobles. The letter which is drafted:- April 6, 1320, read in part:-"We know Most Holy Father and Lord (blasphemy - Matthew 23:9), and from the chronicles and books of the ancients gather, that among other illustrious nations, our's, to wit, the nation of the Scots, has been distinguished by many honours; which passing from the greater Scythia through the Mediterranean Sea and Pillars of Hercules (Gibraltar) and sojourning in Spain (Iberia - Heberia - the Hebrew's land) among most savage tribes through a long course of time, could nowhere be subjugated by any people however barbarous; and coming thence one thousand two hundred years after the outgoing of the People of Israel (the Exodus), they by many victories and infinite toil, acquired for themselves the possessions in the West which they now hold........In their kingdom one hundred and thirteen kings of their own royal stock, no stranger intervening, have reigned...." (Deuteronomy 17:14-20).
For so long as a hundred of us are left alive we will yield in no least way to English domination. We fight not for glory, nor for wealth nor honour, but only and alone for freedom, which no man surrenders but with his life." (Praiseworthy - Matthew 10:28)

Jesus lived in a home in Bethany with Mary and Martha.

Bethany is a town on the eastern side of the Olive Mount. (Mount of Olives) Lazarus and sisters owned an olive orchard on the Mount. Jesus lived with Mary and Martha. This is the place where Jesus invited his disciples to come to his meetings where he taught them on the Mount of Olives.

A picture of Bethany today.

This olive press was found inside the Tomb of Lazarus which sits in the tiny settlement of Bethany.

Lazarus and his sisters would make consecrated oil out of olives to sell for use in the Jerusalem temple. Mary used the olive oil to anoint Jesus before his crucifixion after she washed his feet with her hair.

The Olive Mount where Jesus taught and lived with Mary and Martha is now a hill of tombs. Wealthy Christians throughout the ages chose to put their graves on this mount so when Jesus returned in his Glory they would be resurrected and meet him first.

The ravine below is Gethsemane. The garden of tombs outside the walls of Jerusalem. The road from Jerusalem to Bethany winds through the Gethsemane ravine and is the road that Jesus walked as he traveled from Bethany to Jerusalem and back. It's about a 45 minute walk going down hill.

HAPPY XMAS – X is the abbreviation of the name Christ and has been in use since early Christian times. Many people nowadays are mistakenly of the opinion that the use of “Xmas” is a recent invention or a secular attempt to remove the religious tradition from Christmas by taking the "Christ" out of "Christmas. The practice of using contractions for divine or sacred names (nomina sacrum) started sometime in the 1st Century AD although the exact date remains unknown. 'X' is an ancient abbreviation for the word 'Christ' which comes to us from ancient Greek and is written in the Greek alphabet ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ (cristos) The first two letters are called Chi and Rho and were used to form one of the earliest Christograms, which is a monogram or combination of letters that forms an abbreviation for the name of Jesus Christ. Known as the Chi-Rho it is traditionally used as a Christian symbol. The Christian Roman emperor Constantine I (b. 272AD) used it as a vexillum (military standard) which in turn was known then by the name Labarum. Christ is not a surname/family name but a title meaning 'anointed'. The online etymological dictionary says “a title, treated as a proper name in Old English, but not regularly capitalized until 17c. Pronunciation with long -i- is result of Irish missionary work in England, 7c.-8c. The ch- form, regular since c.1500 in English, was rare before. Capitalization of the word begins 14c. but is not fixed until 17c. The 17c. mystical sect of the Familists edged it toward a verb with Christed "made one with Christ." Webster’s Dictionary of English Usage (Merriam-Webster, 1994) states that, through the centuries, words like Christian, Christianity, christened, and Christopher were also written as Xtian, Xtianity, Xstened, and Xpofer. More recently we have added to this list Xbox, X-ray, Windows XP etc. (This last sentence is a bit of divelment!) Image: the Chi-Rho page from the the Book of Lindisfarne, an Irish monastic foundation (c. 634AD) on a tidal island off the north east coast of England also known just as Holy Island. Note the distinctive long left leg on the Chi/X which is a style found also in the Book of Kells, Book of Durrow, St. Gallen Gospel Book, MacDurnan Gospels and maybe more. A further feature is that in Irish manuscripts it is not unusual to find the first three letters used in the monogram thus Chi-Rho-Iota. Can you make out the text? Between the square brackets below is the text on the page. In the Latin Vulgate the verse is "[Christi (XPI) autem generatio sic erat cum esset desponsata mater eius Maria Ioseph] antequam convenirent inventa est in utero habens de Spiritu Sancto." [Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph], before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit.

THE ROMAN VICTORY WREATH NOW REPRESENTS CHRIST'S VICTORY!!!


Christmas wreaths - origins & trivia


In ancient Rome, people used decorative wreaths as a sign of victory. Some believe that this ishttp://www.thehistoryofchristmas.com/images/trivia/wreath.gifwhere the hanging of wreaths on doors came from.
The origins of the Advent wreath are found in the folk practices of the pre-Christian Germanic peoples who, during the cold December darkness of Eastern Europe, gathered wreaths of evergreen and lighted fires as signs of hope in a coming spring and renewed light. Christians kept these popular traditions alive, and by the 16th century Catholics and Protestants throughout Germany used these symbols to celebrate their Advent hope in Christ, the everlasting Light. From Germany the use of the Advent wreath spread to other parts of the Christian world. Traditionally, the wreath is made of four candles in a circle of evergreens with a fifth candle in the middle. Three candles are violet and the fourth is rose, but four white candles or four violet candles can also be used. Each day at home, the candles are lighted, perhaps before the evening meal-- one candle the first week, and then another each succeeding week until December 25th. A short prayer may accompany the lighting of each candle. The last candle is the middle candle. The lighting of this candle takes place on ChristmasEve. It represents Jesus Christ being born

The meaning of the Song; I saw three Ships.

http://www.spiderwebart.com/images/art/102600.jpg

The legend about sailing into landlocked Bethlehem can be traced back to the 12th century when three ships brought the relics of the purported Wise Men to Koln, Germany. From this story evolved the English folk carol "I Saw Three Ships," which, it is thought, comes from the 15th century. The "three ships" refers to the belief that there were three Wise Men — which comes from the number of gifts, although the number of Wise Men has been estimated from two to twelve over the centuries. Over the passage of time, the Holy Family was substituted for the Magi. Ian Bradley gives a version from Kent-Sussex which mentions sitting under a holly tree and two travelers — Mary and Joseph — journeying to Bethlehem to pay taxes.
And, over the passage of time, as the text moved from village to village, and from country to country, the song acquired numerous different variations in texts and tunes (as seen above). According to Keyte and Parrott, editors ofThe New Oxford Book of Carols, the earliest printed text is from 1666 (John Forbes' Cantus, 2nd. ed.).

Jesus was no "Girlie- Man"

http://celtussanctus.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/jesus1.jpghttp://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRkOgAQyKMSROaXdmdKrN2qyhvp6y-cFKM8frQD5zqNynsCLvxIrw

The exterior appearance of Jesus seems to have been a handsome one. A woman in the crowd broke out into praise of him with the words, Blessed in the womb that bore Thee and the breasts that nursed Thee. His response to herRather, blessed are they who hear the word of God and keep itseems to suggest that she had bodily excellencies in mind as well as spiritual. The powerful impression which Jesus made on ordinary people certainly owed something to his attractive exterior which by its charm drew everyone to him and held them.Even if this was due primarily to his spiritual and religious power, still, his eyes, with their burning, waking, reproving looks must have been especially striking. For example see how Mark remarks of the eyes of the Lord in the following passages: 3:5,34; 5:32; 8:33; 10:21; 23:27.

We also may cull from Scripture an impression of health, power, energy and well being in Jesus. Jesus seems to have been a thoroughly healthy man, not prone to fatigue and with a great capacity for work. We never hear that Jesus was visited by any sickness. A proof of his physical endurance is born out in Scripture. He was in the habit of rising very early (Mark 1:35). The hills and the lake were especially dear to him and after a long day he loved to climb some lonely height, or late in the evening get himself taken out on to the shimmering water of Lake Gennesareth and stayed out far into the night (cf Mk 4:35; 6:35). We also know that his public life was one of wandering through the mountain valleys of his homeland, from Galilee to Samaria and Judaea and even as far as to the district of Tyre and Sidon (Matt 15:21). Despite these arduous journeys he counseled that one should travel light, bringing nothing for the journey, neither staff, money, nor bread, neither have two coats (Luke 9:3). Hunger and thirst must therefore have frequently accompanied him.His last journey from Jericho up to Jerusalem was an astounding feat. Under a burning sun through a desolate, rocky waste he climbed some 3500 feet in a six hour climb. Despite this, he seems not tired, since that night he takes part in a feast at the house of Lazarus and his sisters (John 12:2). By far, the greater part of Jesus’ public ministry was spent out in the open, exposed to rigors of climate, in a life filled with labor and toil, with often little time eat (Mk 3:20; Mk 6:31). He owned no home and “had nowhere to lay his head” (Matt 8:20) Hence he likely spent more than a few nights sleeping out in the elements. Only a sound body of physical stamina could have endured such as this.

And now to his mental stature itself. He faced many malevolent enemies among the Pharisees and Sadducees and dealt with them effectively, reducing them to silence (so much so that they began to plot his death). In addition there were tiring explanations to be offered to disciples who were often slow to learn. His self assurance is manifest. In the midst of a raging storm he went on peacefully sleeping till his disciples woke him. He immediately grasps the situation and rebukes the storm.

There was tremendous clarity in his thought. He had an absolute grasp of His goal which gave him an inflexibility and finality (in the good sense) of his will. Jesus knows what he wills and determinedly pursues it. This is evident even at twelve years of age in the temple.The three temptations in the desert are turned back forcefully by the Lord. He is never deterred by opposition. There is opposition among the kindred of his own town, among his followers (cf esp. John 6:57) and even among the Apostles (cf esp. Matt 16:22). Here we have a man of clear will. He demands the same determination and certainty from his followers. No man, putting his hand to the plough and turning back is fit for the reign of God.” (Luke 9:62)

He bore so clearly the marks of the true, the upright, and the strong, that even his enemies had to declare when they came to him, Master, we know that thou art a true speaker and care not for the opinion of any man. (Mk 12:14) He shows forth a unity and purity and transcendence that reflect his interior life of union with the Father. His loyalty to the will of his Father is unwavering and clear even though it leads directly to the Cross. Jesus in every way is a heroic and epic figure in the purest sense of that word staking his life for a known truth and demanding the same of his followers.

Jesus was a born leader. When he calls his apostles, they immediately arise to follow after him. (cf esp Mk 1:16; 1:20) Again and again the Apostles note how they wondered among themselves about the marvels of his actions and even how these struck terror into them (cf esp. Mk 9:5; 6:51; 4:40; 10:24,26). At times they did not dare question him any further (Mk 9:3). The same wonderment affected the crowds.(cf Mk 5:15,33,42; 9:14). He spoke with towering authority and the people sought the loftiest images to in wondering who he could be. Is he John the Baptist? Elijah? Jeremiah or one prophets? (Matt 16:14) His spiritual power and authority discharged themselves in stern language and bold action when the powers of evil arrayed themselves against him. Demons trembled against his awesome power (Matt 4:10.) He also rebukes strongly the evil that is in men and warns them that they will not be worthy of him if they do not repent (Matt 13:41sq; 13:49sq; 25:1sq; 14sq; 33sq; 18:34; 22:7; 22:11sq.).

He is absolutely clear and unflinching in dealing with the scribes and Pharisees (Matt 23:14,24,25). As shown above, he knows himself to be the Messiah and is anything but a fair-weather Messiah but follows the model of the prophets rebuking all enemies of the truth He proclaims. He speaks of hypocrites, serpents and generations of vipers and liars (cf Matt 23:33). He calls Herod a fox (Lk 13:32). Although he was never one to tread lightly, he never forgets himself or loses control. His anger is always the expression of supreme moral freedom declaring, for this I came into the World, that I should give testimony to the truth (John 18:37). Because He was so consistently true to His Father’s will his life was only “Yes and No” and he reacted with great severity against anything that was ungodly or hateful to God. He was ready to stake his own life for the truth and die for it.To describe Jesus psychologically would be to describe his as a man of purposeful virility, absolute genuineness, austere uprightness, and heroic in performance. He knows the truth, knows himself and, with exact clarity, executes his mission.

The vast array of Christmas albums are produced to make a quick buck. It seems that the entertainer is in the studio for a weekend to collect their $$$.


I can say Celine Dion's 1998 These are Special times is a far departure. A Christmas album that has passion and a true work of art and dedication. Well done. The following are my three favorite tracks.

Jesus' grew up with his true people in Great Britain....

http://www.greatdreams.com/jesus2.htm

CHRIST in BRITAIN
---------------
The study of Jesus in Britain touches on the Royal family, the establishment of the Church, Paul's visit to Britain, and even the founding of the Roman church.
Various and many historical documents indicate that, after Jerusalem, the first Christian church was established in England. It's founder, and founder as well of many seminaries, was Joseph of Arimathea, the uncle of the Virgin Mary. He was Jesus' great uncle. Joseph was a rich merchant with a large fleet of ships that ran the tin trade for the Roman Empire, between England and the Mediterranean.
As Jesus' great uncle, Joseph became Jesus' Guardian (by Law, as next of kin) when Mary's husband Joseph died early in Jesus' life. He took Jesus with him on his journeys to Glastonbury, England. The place we know as Avalon; the King Arthur Avalon. This is the location of the first Christian church built above ground.
To paraphrase an old saying, "All Christian roads lead to England."
The following information was taken from two of the many volumes on the subject of Jesus' spending time in Britain. They are, the Traditions of Glastonbury, by E. Raymond Capt, and Did Our Lord Visit Britain, by C.C. Dobson.
ABSENT EVIDENCE
If Jesus was indeed absent from Judea from age twelve to age thirty, as some believe, we should be able to find evidence that this was the case. In Matt 17 Jesus was being asked for the Stranger's tax. They seemed aware that Jesus lived in Capernaum. They didn't know if he was exempt from the tax, having been gone for a long time.
John the Baptist, who was Jesus' cousin, and spent time with Jesus as they grew up, was very uncertain as to Jesus' identity at his baptism. If Jesus had spent the "lost years" in Judea, he and John would certainly have seen each other at the three yearly Feasts.
Then we find two accounts of Jesus' identity being questioned. "Is this not Joseph's son?" "Brought up here?" (Luke 4) "Is not this the carpenter's son?" (Matt 14) And in John 1 we find that Nathaniel, who only lived five miles from Nazareth, doesn't know Jesus. Capt says that Nathaniel was from Cana.
JESUS' VISITS
Of Jesus' visits to England, scattered evidence abounds. Here's a short scenario from C.C. Dobson
"As a boy He was brought merely for a visit by Joseph of Arimathea on one of his voyages. Later as a young man He returned and settled at Glastonbury for the purpose of quiet study, prayer, and meditation. Here He erected for Himself a small house of mud and wattles. " Dobson goes on to present historical evidence.
In a letter to Pope Gregory, St.Augustine states that there was a church "constructed by no human art, but divinely contructed (or by the hands of Christ Himself), for the salvation of His people."
The historian, Gildas, says Jesus' "Light and precepts" were "afforded...to this island during the ...last year of the reign of Tiberius. Tiberius retired to Caprae in A.D. 27.
William of Malmesbury includes in his writings the contents of a letter given by King Ina to Glastonbury, 700 AD."To the ancient church, situate in the place called Glastonbury (which Church the Great High Priest and Chiefest Minister formerly through His own ministry, and that of angels....." This confirms Gildas' statement that Jesus had a ministry at Glastonbury.
The historical records called the Domesday Surveys, also bear witness to Jesus' presence in Glastonbury. These surveys state that Glastonbury contained 12 hides (160 acre parcels) of land that "have never paid tax." This was because the King Arviragus gave these parcels to Joseph of Arimathea when he arrived in England in 37 AD.
TRADITIONS
Four of the many traditions of Jesus coming to England are discussed in Capt's book.
Ancient carvings on the stone arch of Place Manor Church has an insignia of an anchor, a lamb and cross. The accompanying pictographs tell the story of Jesus and His uncle coming to Place for tin.
Another traditional story is that of Jesus teaching the miners of Cornwall how to smelt tin from ore.
Old Cornwall mining Ordinance maps show two interesting names. "Corpus Christi" (Body of Christ), and "Wheel of Jesus" (wheel is a Cornish name for mine). Also found in abundance in Cornwall's mining area are "Tunic Crosses." These crosses picture a Christian cross on one side and the image of a young lad dressed in a short tunic; obviously not a picture of a crucified or risen Christ.
This quote from Capt relates the Mendips mining area to Joseph and Jesus. "Traditions among the hill folk of Somerset relate that Joseph, after first seeking tin from the Scillies (islands) and Cornwall, came to the Mendips and was accompanied on several occassions by the boy Jesus. At the parish Church of Priddy, high on top of the Mendips, they have an old saying: 'As sure as our Lord was at Priddy.' And a carol sung be the children of Priddy begins: "Joseph was a tin merchant, a tin merchant, a tin merchant, and goes on to describe him arriving from the sea in a boat."
Much has been written about the Lost Years of Jesus. Many accounts place him in India. One South American tradition sounds very much like Jesus visiting that continent. In fact, many say that the complete and speedy success of the Spanish invaders was due to this tradition; that the Visitor prophsied that He would return.
Consider. If Joseph had a fleet of ships, that gave Jesus access to worldwide travel. Do not doubt for even a second that world travel to ALL lands was possible. There is abundant evidence to prove the fact.
The traditions of Glastonbury and Cornwall form the following scenario:
Joseph of Arimathea was an uncle of the Virgin Mary, being a younger brother of her father. He gained his wealth as an importer in the tin trade, which existed between Cornwall and Phoenicia. On one of his voyages he took Our Lord with him when a boy. Our Lord either remained in Britain or returned later as a young man, and stayed in quiet retirement at Glastonbury. Here he erected for himself a small house of mud and wattle. Later Joseph of Arimathea, fleeing from Palestine, settled in the same place and erected a mud and wattle church there.
The contents of these several pages on the Cradle of Christianity will be found to over lap. That can't be helped, as the whole topic takes in many areas of study which all relate importantly to each other. So the study of Jesus in Britain touches on the Royal family, the establishment of the Church, Paul's visit to Britain, and even the founding of the Roman church.

The Candle In The Window

Family Tradition

The Tradition of placing a Candle in the Window goes back to the Colonial times in the United States and back much further in time for other cultures. It is a Tradition practiced throughout the year. It symbolizes the warmth and security of the Family hearth and signals loyalty to Family members and loved ones who are not present in the home. At Christmas Time it follows the tradition of The Colonial Williamsburg Christmas.

Background

A Window Candle has been a traditional practice in many cultures. It has a variety of meanings in The United States. The practice starts with the fundamental use of fire by mankind. Throughout the history of man a campfire has represented warmth and security. It is the source of heat to cook food and warm the body and the spirit. It is the barrier between the safe and the unsafe in an untamed and unfriendly http://www.americanfamilytraditions.com/Hearth_Trimmed_WEB_small.jpg (http://www.americanfamilytraditions.com/Hearth_Trimmed_WEB.jpg)wilderness. Over the course of history, as we have moved our campfires into our homes, there, the hearth has represented these very same things. The family hearth has been the center of activity because of its warmth and practical use for food preparation. We love to watch the dancing flames as the fire's warmth flows into the deepest and coldest parts of our bodies. Sitting in front of the hearth on a cold wintry day gives us a feeling of warmth and security. It makes us feel like all is right with the world. In most cultures a Candle in the Window was used to signal a Family's loyalty to a loved one who was away traveling. It let that person know the family awaited their return and the hearth was warm and waiting for them1. In Ireland during times of religious persecution, the Window Candle signaled the location of religious services2.

In Colonial America a Candle in the Window was used to honor dignitaries, announce births and just plain celebrate (Hodges and Miley Theobold p. 42)3,4.http://www.americanfamilytraditions.com/House_Candle_Light_Trimmed_WEB_small.jpg (http://www.americanfamilytraditions.com/House_Candle_Light_Trimmed_WEB.jpg) Every Christmas in Williamsburg Window Candles are illuminated in each window of the homes and businesses in that community to commemorate an old fashioned Christmas (Hodges and Miley Theobold p. 38)3. Many other cultures around the world practice the Candle in the Window Tradition.

San Francisco, CA — The ‘war on Christmas’ continues as a simple well-wishing of ‘Merry Christmas’ has led to big trouble for one fourth-grade San Francisco boy this week.
Timothy Dawson, a 9-year-old student at Argon Elementary School in San Francisco, CA., was in the school cafeteria Monday eating with friends when he was taken to the principal’s office and given a week-long suspension. His punishment was consequence for saying ‘Merry Christmas’ to his homeroom teacher earlier that morning.

This is why Brown Persians think they built the great Persian Empire.
This is why Brown Egyptians think they built the great Egyptian Empire.
This is why Brown people think the early Israelites were Brown Arabic.

Yet none of the above brown people can explain why their Empires fell into third world Nations.... When race mixing and browns migrate to white areas they start "Painting" the heroes to look like them.

This is an ongoing trend and there is an agenda to "Paint" Santa Claus as well as Jesus to be non white.

Under The Mistletoe The Druid Tradition:

http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTyqg9vSKl3Go7JpI5dIjmlc01M6hVtz mfA7z4ghS6NHaAZM24OeQ


History---Mistletoe was held in great reverence by the Druids. They went forth clad in white robes to search for the sacred plant, and when it was discovered, one of the Druids ascended the tree and gathered it with great ceremony, separating it from the Oak with a golden knife. The Mistletoe was always cut at a particular age of the moon, at the beginning of the year, and it was only sought for when the Druids declared they had visions directing them to seek it. When a great length of time elapsed without this happening, or if the Mistletoe chanced to fall to the ground, it was considered as an omen that some misfortune would befall the nation. The Druids held that the Mistletoe protected its possessor from all evil, and that the oaks on which it was seen growing were to be respected because of the wonderful cures which the priests were able to effect with it. They sent round their attendant youth with branches of the Mistletoe to announce the entrance of the new year. It is probable that the custom of including it in the decoration of our homes at Christmas, giving it a special place of honour, is a survival of this old custom.
The curious basket of garland with which 'Jack-in-the-Green' is even now occasionally invested on May-day is said to be a relic of a similar garb assumed by the Druids for the ceremony of the Mistletoe. When they had found it they danced round the oak to the tune of 'Hey derry down, down, down derry!' which literally signified, 'In a circle move we round the oak. ' Some oakwoods in Herefordshire are still called 'the derry'; and the following line from Ovid refers to the Druids' songs beneath the oak:'---Ad viscum Druidce cantare solebant---.'Shakespeare calls it 'the baleful Mistletoe,' an allusion to the Scandinavian legend that Balder, the god of Peace, was slain with an arrow made of Mistletoe. He was restored to life at the request of the other gods and goddesses, and Mistletoe was afterwards given into the keeping of the goddess of Love, and it was ordained that everyone who passed under it should receive a kiss, to show that the branch had become an emblem of love, and not of hate.

Christmas Cookie Recipe


Ingredients
1 large egg
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, slightly soft
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
1/4 teaspoon fine salt
2 cups all-purpose flour, plus as needed
For Decorating:
1 cup confectioners' sugar
About 1 tablespoon milk
Food coloring, if desired
Sprinkles, candies, cored sugar as desired
Directions
Whisk the egg and vanilla in a small bowl and set aside.

With a hand held mixer in a large bowl, cream the butter until fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula, add both sugars, and continue beating until light, 2 to 3 minutes. Scrape the sides of the bowl again, if needed, then add the egg mixture, beating for about 1 minute. Sift the salt with the flour. Reduce the mixer to a low speed and then add the flour mixture, mixing just until blended.

Turn the dough out of the bowl. Divide the dough in half and place each half between 2 pieces of lightly floured parchment or waxed paper. Use a rolling pin to flatten the dough into a disk about 1/4-inch thick. Slide the dough/parchment sheet onto a flat cookie sheet, or on the back of a rimmed baking sheet. Refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours or overnight.

Evenly space the racks in the oven and preheat to 325 degrees F. Place 1 disk of the cookie dough on a clean work surface and peel off the top sheet of paper. Cut cookies with a 1 1/2-inch round or a decorative shaped cookie cutter directly on the parchment. Use a spatula to transfer the cookies to a parchment-lined or non-stick baking sheet, spacing them about 1-inch apart. Repeat with other sheet of dough. Any excess dough can be re-rolled, refrigerated, and cut.

Bake until the edges of the cookies are a light golden, about 15 minutes. Transfer cookies to a rack to cool.

For decorating: Whisk the confectioners' sugar with just enough milk to make a thick icing. Transfer icing to a small plastic bag. Press the icing into a corner of the bag and snip off the corner with scissors to make a small opening. Gently press the icing onto the cookie to make a simple pattern. Decorate as desired. Set aside for about 1 hour to let the icing harden.

Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

Some Parents Upset After L.I. School Removes Religious References From ‘Silent Night’



http://cbsnewyork.files.wordpress.com/2013/12/silent-choir.jpg?w=620&h=349&crop=1

“Any reference to what the song was about — the birth of Christ, ’round young virgin mother and child’ — all of those things were omitted from the version that the children sang beautifully,” said Jackie McDonald, a mother who walked out of the performance.
“To choose to sing ‘Silent Night’ and eviscerate the meaning of the song was not appropriate,” McDonald told CBS 2′s Carolyn Gusoff.
Some parents said the school should have chosen a different song.
“It’s offensive,” one father told Gusoff. “If you’re going to remove words to not offend other religions, what about the religion that that song belongs to, which is Christianity?”

Why A German Pilot Escorted An American Bomber To Safety During World War II


http://res.cloudinary.com/gawker-media/image/fetch/t_ku-xlarge/http://img.gawkerassets.com/img/189cnhn0lckrnjpg/original.jpg


Once in a while, you hear an old war story that restores your faith in humanity. Usually it involves a moment of quiet in the midst of chaos;some singing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christmas_truce) or the sharing of a few condiments (http://gradworks.umi.com/14/85/1485771.html). But how many of them take place in mid air?
P

This is the remarkable story of a crippled American bomber spared by a German fighter pilot. After the two planes' pilots had a mid-air moment of understanding, it didn't seem likely that they'd ever see one another again. Only they did, and became closer than brothers.
P

Here's how it all went down.
P

It was a few days before Christmas in 1943, and the Allied bombing campaign in Germany was going at full tilt. Second Lieutenant Charlie Brown was a freshly minted bomber pilot, and he and his crew were about to embark upon their first mission — to hit an aircraft factory in northern Germany.
P

Brown's B-17F Flying Fortress (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_B-17_Flying_Fortress), dubbed Ye Olde Pub (http://www.military.com/Content/MoreContent1/?file=dday_0033p1), was typical of American heavy bombers of the time. Along with an 8,000-pound bomb capacity, the four-engine plane was armed with 11 machine guns and strategically placed armor plating. B-17s cruised at about 27,000 feet, but weren't pressurized. At that altitude, the air is thin and cold — 60 degrees below zero. Pilots and crew relied upon an onboard oxygen system and really warm flight suits with heated shoes.
P

As Ye Old Pub approached Bremen, Germany, German anti-aircraft batteries opened up on the formation. Unfortunately for the pilots and crew of Ye Olde Pub, one of the anti-aircraft rounds exploded right in front of their plane, destroying the number two engine and damaging number four. Missing one engine and with another throttled back due to damage, Ye Olde Pub could no longer keep up with the formation.
P

http://res.cloudinary.com/gawker-media/image/fetch/t_ku-xlarge/http://img.gawkerassets.com/img/189co1p61fyknjpg/original.jpg
B-17s were known for being able to soak up a lot of bullets and anti-aircraft flak and still make it home, but that came at a cost. The armor plating protecting crew and vital areas of the plane was heavy and affected cruise speed. Although armed with a number of heavy machine gun turrets, there were still areas of the aircraft that were vulnerable to attack by enemy fighter planes. The U.S. Army Air Corps addressed this problem by placing many planes in staggered formation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Combat_box)that allowed bombs to be dropped while multiple planes could cover the defensive gaps of other planes in the formation with overlapping fields of fire.
P

The drawback to this arrangement was that individual planes couldn't take evasive maneuvers (they'd risk damage from friendly bombs or machine gun fire), and stragglers were completely open to attack by enemy aircraft. Think about a small group of quick, agile cowboys chasing a herd of buffalo. They're both dangerous to one another, but if one lumbering buffalo leaves the safety of the group, there's not much hope for it.
P

Things went from bad to worse for Brown and his crew. Falling behind the formation, Ye Olde Pub weathered merciless attacks from 15 German fighters. The bomber's machine guns got one of them, but the damage they sustained was immense. The tail gunner was killed and four were injured, including Brown, who caught a bullet fragment in his right shoulder. The only defensive guns left in service were the top turret and the nose gun, and the bomber's hydraulics and oxygen systems had also been knocked out. The plane went into a spiral, plummeting earthward.
P

What happened next is according to the memory of Brown, who told interviewers years later (http://www.military.com/Content/MoreContent1/?file=dday_0033p1)that his mind was a bit hazy at the time; his shoulder was bleeding and he needed oxygen.
P
I either spiraled or spun and came out of the spin just above the ground. My only conscience memory was of dodging trees but I had nightmares for years and years about dodging buildings and then trees. I think the Germans thought that we had spun in and crashed.
P

Ye Olde Pub was spared further harassment by enemy fighters. Somehow, he and the co-pilot managed to get the plane flying level again at about 1,000 feet of elevation.
P

On the way out to the sea, Ye Olde Pub passed a German airfield. Lt. Franz Stigler, a Luftwaffe fighter pilot just in from shooting down two B-17s, saw Ye Olde Pub limp by. Naturally, he scrambled to give chase. But what he saw arrested any aggression he may have had. As he told interviewers in 1991, he was aghast at the amount of damage the bomber had sustained. Its nose cone was missing, it had several gaping holes in the fuselage. He could see crew members giving first aid to the wounded, and most of the plane's guns hung limp, unmanned as they were.
P
I saw his gunner lying in the back profusely bleeding….. so, I couldn't shoot. I tried to get him to land in Germany and he didn't react at all. So, I figured, well, turn him to Sweden, because his airplane was so shot up; I never saw anything flying so shot up.
P

Stigler kept his distance, always staying out of the line of fire of the two guns still in service, but managed to fly within 20 feet of the bullet riddled B-17. He tried to contact Brown with hand signals. His message was simple: Land your plane in Germany and surrender or fly to Sweden. That heap will never make it back to England.
P

A bewildered Brown stared back through his side window, not believing what he was seeing. He had already counted himself as a casualty numerous times. But this strange German pilot kept gesturing at him. There was no way he was going to land the plane, but the pilot stayed with him, keeping other attackers off until they reached the North Sea. When it was clear that Brown wasn't staying in Germany, Stigler saluted, peeled off, and flew out of Ye Olde Pub's nightmarish day.
P
When Franz tried to get me to surrender, my mind just wouldn't accept that. It wasn't chivalry, it wasn't bravery, it was probably stupidity. My mind just didn't function in a clear manner. So his choice then was to kill us or try to get us to go to Sweden, since we wouldn't land.
P

The bomber made it back to England, scarcely able to keep 250 feet between itself and the ground by the time it landed in a smoking pile of exhausted men and shredded aluminum. Years later, Brown would say that if Stigler had been able to talk to him, offering the land in Germany or fly to Sweden ultimatum, he probably would have gone to Sweden. But Ye Olde Pub did make it, and Brown got a much needed stiff drink handed to him when he got off the plane.
P

http://res.cloudinary.com/gawker-media/image/fetch/t_ku-xlarge/http://img.gawkerassets.com/img/189co1r51z53sjpg/original.jpg
The incredulous debriefing officer, wowed by Brown's story, went off to tell the brass what had happened. He recommended Brown's crew for citation, but the glory was short-lived. Brass quickly decided that word getting out about a chivalrous German fighter pilot could endanger the lives of other crews if it caused them to let their guard down. All details of Ye Olde Pub's first mission were classified Secret.
P

Stigler was never able to speak of his actions that day, as it would have meant certain court martial. He flew many more missions, though, becoming one of the world's first fighter jet pilots. By the war's end, he was one of only about 1,300 surviving Luftwaffe pilots. Some 28,000 had served.
P

After the war, Charlie Brown returned home to West Virginia and went to college, returning to the Air Force in 1949 and serving until 1965. Later, as a State Department Foreign Service Officer, he made numerous trips to Laos and Vietnam. But in 1972, he hung up his government service hat and moved to Miami to become an inventor.
P

Stigler finished the war amidst ruin. Anti-Third Reich post-war authorities in Germany were unimpressed with his exemplary service record, and the economy was wrecked. He subsisted on food stamps and work as a bricklayer's helper for a while, but moved to Canada in 1953. There, he enjoyed success as a businessman.
P

Many years went by without either man ever thinking much about what had happened on that day in 1943. But in 1986, then retired Colonel Charlie Brown was asked to speak at a big combat pilot reunion event called Gathering of the Eagles. Someone asked him if he had any memorable missions during World War II. Brown thought a minute, then dredged up the story of Stigler's salute which had been buried somewhere in the dirty corners of his mind for decades. Jaws dropped. Brown knew he would have to try to find the man who had spared his life.
P

After four years of searching vainly for U.S. and West German Air Force records that might shed some light on who the pilot was, Brown hadn't come up with much. So he wrote a letter in a combat pilot association newsletter. A few months later, Brown received a letter from Canada. It was from Stigler. "I was the one," it said. When they spoke on the phone, Stigler described his plane, the salute; everything Brown needed to hear to know it wasn't a hoax.
P


From 1990 to 2008, Charlie Brown and Franz Stigler became like brothers. Introduced by the bond of that first powerful meeting, their friendship was cemented over the years. The two men remained close throughout the rest of their lives, dying within several months of each other in 2008.
P

There are so many parts of that beautiful story that could have turned out differently. In any event, Stigler probably wouldn't have shot Brown's crippled plane. He was a veteran pilot with an iron sense of right and wrong; a man who would never kick another while he's down.
P

But what if Stigler had been executed for his disloyalty? What if Brown had landed in Germany (http://www.merkki.com/murderinc.htm)or hadn't made it across the North Sea? What if Stigler had stayed in Germany and never learned how to speak English? Yes, things could have been different, but that chance encounter in 1943 was destined to become a chance encounter again in 1990. But more importantly, it's proof to the rest of us that something great done now can change your life

Christmas Stockings Tradition


The hanging of stockings by the fireplace mantle (also spelled mantel), is a familiar Christmas custom. Those with homes lacking fireplaces may hang Christmas stockings from bedposts, doorknobs, windowsills, staircases and other areas. When Santa Claus arrives on Christmas Eve, he fills the stockings with small treats and gifts. While there is no definitive account that completely explains this tradition, several legends may help to illustrate how the custom of hanging Christmas stockings arose.

In the first legend, St. Nicholas of Myra, believed to be the inspiration for Santa Claus, is traveling through a small village when he learns of the plight of a merchant and his daughters. In one popular version of the story, the once wealthy merchant has fallen on difficult times and is worried for the future of his three beautiful daughters. Unable to afford dowries ~ money or property brought by a wife to her husband at marriage ~ for the girls, the three young women have no prospects for wedlock and may be subject to lives of shame.

Upon hearing of this predicament, St. Nicholas set forth to secretly help the proud merchant, knowing he would not accept an outright gift of charity. Riding his majestic white horse by the merchant's house one night, St. Nicholas tossed three bags of gold coins down the home's chimney. The bags were fortuitously captured in the girls' stockings, which had been hung by the fireplace mantle to dry. When the gold coins were discovered the next morning, the merchant and his daughters rejoiced. The young women went on the make advantageous marriages and all lived happily ever after. After tellings of the account spread, children began hanging their stockings by the fireplace, in hopes that they too would receive gifts from St. Nicholas.

Another explanation for the tradition of Christmas stockings may be found in Dutch lore. In Holland, 'Sinterklaas' arrives on a ship from Spain with his assistant 'Zwarte Piet' or Black Pete. Upon disembarking, they travel the country with Sinterklaas upon his noble white steed and Zwarte Piet riding a mule. Dutch children would leave treats of carrots and hay in their clogs, or wooden shoes, for the horse and mule and Sinterklaas would in turn fill the shoes with small gifts for the children after the horse and mule had enjoyed the treats.

When Dutch settlers immigrated to America, they brought many of their traditions with them. Over time, Sinterklaas came to be known as Santa Claus, and it is quite possible that wooden clogs were eventually replaced by stockings.

In any event, the habit of hanging of Christmas stockings, with the expectation they will be filled with small gifts from Santa, is a tradition now enjoyed by countless children the world over.

According to an ABC7 photographer who was interviewing the victim at the time of the shooting, the man in the Santa suit was struck in his upper back. He was transported to a nearby hospital with the pellet still lodged in his shoulder.
Witnesses report hearing two shots. Police believe they came from a second story window in a nearby building.
"Santa" wanted to continue giving away presents, but paramedics insisted he be transported to the hospital. He is expected to be OK and make a full recovery.
The toy giveaway did go on. A man playing the Grinch stepped in to help.

Family's Christmas nightmare after thieves steal presents AND dog

TAMPA (FOX 13) -Imagine learning all your family's Christmas gifts were stolen, and on top of that, the family pet, too.
It's become a sad reality for a Tampa family this holiday. Their home was broken into yesterday on North 50th Street.
Police say the department got together to make sure the kids got their gifts back, but they do not have the location of the dog, Honey.
As the little girl put it, it's a Christmas nightmare. The mother, Melody Russell, lives in the home with her two children. She said when she came home Monday around 7, she found the house in a wreck.
She realized all the Christmas presents had been stolen -- not to mention a TV, laptop and other items. What's more: The family's 12-week-old Shih Tzu, Honey, was gone, too.
She was like a baby sister to the two kids, 7 and 5. It looks like the thieves broke through a glass sliding door in the back of the home, police said.
"We live on my salary," Russell said. "It's not much, so just to see that everything that I had been working for little by little to see they have a good day, that was heartbreaking to see that they just don't care."
"That morning I woke up. I just thought it was a nightmare," little Marissa Garcia said.
"Marissa, she could barely talk last night because she was just crying and crying," Russell said. "It's hard. It's like losing a family member. It really is."
The small holiday magic to the story is that several dispatchers and officers with the Tampa Police Department heard about what happened and stepped in, buying upwards of 30 gifts for the family so they could celebrate Christmas.
It's bringing some comfort to the family, but of course, they still want their Honey back.
If you have any information about the crime, contact the Tampa Police Department.
