Jesus was born in a Sukkot Booth. How about John the Baptist – a real Jew? Because of MY discovery and conclusion Jesus was not born in a manger, and his parents were practicing a important and traditional Jewish observance, then Jesus would take the side of the Judaizers – and condemn Paul – who I suspect was an Anti-circumcision priest (of some kind) who went after Jews in Antioch. I will compare this persecution of Jews to the evil political games the Republican party has played with ALL WOMEN with guidance of powerful men of God, and think tanks paid for by very wealthy men.
With the repeal of Roe vs, Wade……the Evil Crucifix fashioned by Farwell’s Devils can be removed from around the neck of ALL American women, even Christian women who thought they could chose to be on THE SIDE OF JESUS, who would recognize this evil political game – if he were alive! This RUSE will not come down to – CRIMINALIZING AND PROSECTUING INDIVIUAL WOMEN! It will be a matter of INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS backed up by a team of powerful lawyer that my be called;
THE LEAGUE OF MARTYRED AND CRIMINALIZED WOMEN……THE LMCW.
I would look to Mary White Ovington to the formation of the LMCW.
The LMCW will be a Powerful and well-funded Think Tank. For the first time in American History Religious Doctrine can be challenged in regards to The Real Legal defense of Religiously Persecuted Human Beings. With Franklin Grahams DECLARATION that prayers made abortion illegal, the attorney for the LMCW will remove the bloody Festus crucifix from around the necks of those who stand trial, and place them around the neck of Donald Trump and his false Republican Cult. Putin and Kirill will get their fare share of Dead Fetuses on a Stick! The question I ask….did Jesus to to Antioch and defend those who were imprisoned and put on trial. Were they going to be crucified?
I believe John the Baptist was born on The Day of Aotonement. Five days later Zachariah and Elizabeth set up a Sukkot Booth and began to recive the Holiest Men and Women in Judea, as well as other parts of the world. They brought gifts to……The Gift of God’. Elizabeth sang ‘Hannah’s Song’

The Judaizers were a faction of the Jewish Christians, both of Jewish and non-Jewish origins, who regarded the Levitical laws of the Old Testament as still binding on all Christians. They tried to enforce Jewish circumcision upon the Gentile converts to early Christianity and were strenuously opposed and criticized for their behavior by the Apostle Paul, who employed many of his epistles to refute their doctrinal positions.
The term is derived from the Koine Greek word Ἰουδαΐζειν (Ioudaizein), used once in the Greek New Testament (Galatians 2:14), when Paul the Apostle publicly challenged the Apostle Peter for compelling Gentile converts to early Christianity to “judaize”. This episode is known as the incident at Antioch.
Most Christians believe that much of the Old Covenant has been superseded, and many believe it has been completely abrogated and replaced by the Law of Christ. The Christian debate over Judaizing began in the lifetime of the apostles, notably at the Council of Jerusalem and the incident at Antioch. It has been carried on parallel to continuing debates about Paul the Apostle and Judaism, Protestant views of the Ten Commandments, and Christian ethics.
Not the Supreme Court as an institution. Its reputation was in decline even before the extraordinary breach of its norms of confidentiality, with much of the nation persuaded that it is little different from the political branches of the government. The internal disarray the leak suggests, wholly at odds with the decorum prized by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., was a blow to the legitimacy of the court.
Relations among the justices, too, on the evidence of questioning at arguments and statements in opinions, have turned fraught and frosty. “Will this institution survive the stench that this creates in the public perception that the Constitution and its reading are just political acts?” Justice Sonia Sotomayor asked when the challenge to Roe was argued in December, as it became clear that five justices were ready to overrule the decision.
I am the first theologian that is revealing information that is destined for a book before hand in order to fight the evangelical heresy that put Trump in power, and has created an alliance with Putin and the Russian Orthodox church. Together, they pose a great threat to all the democracies of the world.
I believe Jesus was special because his mother became a widow while he was in her womb. Mary’s husband may have died fighting Romans, or, died on the cross. The brother of the deceased is obligated to take his brother’s wife as his own. In Mary’s case, that would be Joseph. Joseph has other children who are half-siblings to Jesus. Jesus became extra-special because he was born in a Sukkot Booth. This explains the reference of the flight into Egypt. Herod replaces the Pharaoh that pursued them after his son and the first born of Egypt were killed – after the attempt to kill the God’s first born. Were there other Widow’s Sons that Jesus made his disciples after John the Baptist met this special boy?
John did Baptise Jesus, but, continued to go about the world with his disciples – as the Messiah! Paul ran into John’s disciples. John did not see Jesus as a Messiah. Jesus may have later declared himself the King of Judea. He was not sent by God to be a human sacrifice, where the blood of the lamb is sprinkled on Christians, who did not exist. Nor was he a ‘Personal Household God’, a lucky rabbits foot, in the case of prosperity gospel.
Last night I had nightmares about how divided the United States is. The prophecy I found two days ago about ‘The Great King’ bids me to give lessons aimed at not uniting us, but gifting us with The Truth, which will set us free from the chains of Hubris ‘The Great Liar’.
Jesus was not born in a manger, but a Sukkot. Most Rabbis could have figured this out, if they bothered, if they looked. At forty-eight years of age, I began my search after reading the Bible for the first time. I found many truths. The man in the video below owns many truths and gives them away for free.
Donald Trump has taken The Truth hostage, and gives us crumbs for political power. He has already made Free Men – beggars! When we are beggars, we work against one another.

The Festival of Sukkot begins on Tishri 15, the fifth day after Yom Kippur. It is quite a drastic transition, from one of the most solemn holidays in our year to one of the most joyous. Sukkot is so unreservedly joyful that it is commonly referred to in Jewish prayer and literature as Z’man Simchateinu , the Season of our Rejoicing.
Most Gentile Christians wouldn’t bother to speculate about the time when Jesus was born. They celebrate it on December 25th even though they know there is no Biblical basis for choosing that date. However, there are some Messianic Jews who believe that they know, with a reasonable degree of certainty, the time of year when Yeshua (Jesus) was born. Taking into account certain Jewish customs and traditions, it’s not difficult to calculate it.
There is quite a wide consensus of opinion that Yeshua was born at some time during the High Holy Days of Rosh Hashana (New Year) and Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), or at Succot (Tabernacles) which follows soon afterwards. These festivals normally occur in the Autumn, about September or October, but it varies from year to year because the Jewish calendar is based on the cycles of the moon and doesn’t fit in with the Gregorian calendar.
The calculation of the time of Yeshua’s birth begins with Zechariah, the father of John the Baptist. According to Luke 1:5 he was a priest of the order of Abijah. He was performing his duties, burning incense in the Temple, when an angel appeared and said his wife Elizabeth would conceive and bear a son, and he would be called Yochanan (John).
The order in which the priestly families performed their duties is given in 1 Chronicles 24:7-18. According to the Mishnah, the cycle begins on the first Shabbat (Sabbath) of Nisan, and each family of priests would minister in turn for one week. Since there are 24 families, each family would minister about twice a year. The cycle would be delayed slightly because all priests, regardless of their families, were required to be at the Temple for the three festivals of Pesach (Passover), Shavuot (Pentecost) and Succot (Tabernacles).
The family of Abijah was eighth in line, so Zechariah would have had his first period of duty during Sivan (about June) and his second period during Kislev about six months later. There is no way of knowing for sure which period of duty is referred to in Luke’s Gospel, but if we suppose it is the first period we get some very interesting results.
Zechariah finished his first period of duty about the middle of Sivan. Because of his unbelief, God struck him dumb, but his reproductive system was still working. He went home to his wife and she became pregnant. Count off 40 weeks, the usual period of gestation, and we get to the month of Nisan the following year. Beginning on the 14th of Nisan, and lasting for eight days, we have the festival of Pesach (Passover), which roughly coincides with Easter on the Christian calendar. This raises the distinct possibility that John the Baptist was born at Pesach, which coincides with the Jewish expectation that Elijah would come at Pesach. The Jews always put an extra cup of wine on the table at Pesach, in the hope that Elijah will come and drink it.
If John the Baptist was born at Pesach, Yeshua (Jesus) must have been born during the High Holy Days or at Succoth. In Luke 1:26 and 36 we are told that Yeshua was six months younger than John.
When the decree went out for everyone to go to their home town to be registered, Joseph and Mary set off for Bethlehem. They would have set out in good time, before Mary was fully 40 weeks pregnant, because she wouldn’t want to be jogged into childbirth while riding on a donkey. Besides, they would have wanted to complete the journey before Rosh Hashana.
We are given a clue about the time of the birth by the angel who appeared to the shepherds and said “Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people”. (Luke 2:10). There are actually two clues here. Succot is a festival of joy, and it is also known as the “Festival of the Nations”. The angel was actually giving them a greeting for the Festival of Succot. This is the only festival where the nations are positively encouraged to participate. (Zechariah 14:16-19).
During Succot, the Jews contruct flimsy shelters called “Succah”, using wood and leaves, and eat or sleep in them. This is to remember how they were completely dependent on God as they wandered around for forty years in the desert when they came out of Egypt. They are celebrating “God with us”.
The birth of Yeshua at Succot fulfils another prophecy: “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us”. (Matt. 1:23, a quotation from Isaiah 7:14).
If this is not enough, we also have to consider the type of dwelling in which Yeshua was born. Had it not been for the inconvenience caused by the census, he would have been born in a house like all other children. But he wasn’t, he was born in a stable, a flimsy dwelling where they kept sheep and cattle. So he was born in a Succah, to indicate that God had come to earth to dwell with humanity.
Eight days later, according to Luke 2:21, he was circumcised. NOT in the Temple as some suppose, but in Bethlehem, probably in the Succah where he was born. Mary would still be ceremonially unclean for 33 days after the circumcision according to Leviticus 12. Besides, she would be unlikely to travel to Jerusalem so soon after the birth even though it was not very far.
If the day of his birth was the first day of Succot, the day of his circumcision would be the eighth day of Succot which, like the first day, is a day of sacred assembly. (Leviticus 23:39). On this day, or traditionally the day after, the Jews complete their annual cycle of Torah readings and start again from Bereshit (Genesis). It is called Simchat Torah (Rejoicing of the Law), and is considered to be a time of “fulfilment” of the Torah. The circumcision of Yeshua at this time indicates how he had come to fulfil the Law and the Prophets (Matt. 5:17-18). Also in John 1:14 we read about how “The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us” – another obvious reference to Succot.
When the days of Mary’s purification were over (33 days after the circumcision), they would have made their way to Jerusalem to sacrifice a pair of doves or young pigeons. (Luke 2:22-24). Then they went back to Nazareth (Luke 2:39).
Every year they went to Jerusalem for Pesach. (Luke 2:41). During one of these visits, probably when Yeshua was two years old, they went to Bethlehem and stayed, not in a stable, but in a house. (Matt. 2:11). They were visited by the Magi, and then had to flee to Egypt to escape from Herod because he was killing all the male children two years old and under.
Starting from Zechariah, the father of John the Baptist, and his first period of duty in the Temple, and doing a few simple calculations, we arrive at a result which gives a new and profound meaning to many passages of Scripture, and for that reason, I think Yeshua is very likely to have been born at Succot.
So what are we going to do now? Are we going to continue observing Christmas on December 25th (which incidentally has pagan origins), or are we going to celebrate the birth of Yeshua at Succot? If we do (and we don’t have to become Jewish to do it) we will be creating the conditions in which Zechariah 14:16-19 can be fulfilled. People will say “Since we are celebrating Succot, why not do it in Jerusalem?”. Up to a point, this is already being fulfilled by large numbers of Christians who go to Jerusalem for a Succot celebration each year, but it could get bigger.
In Israel it’s impossible to miss these festivals, but for the benefit of those in the Diaspora the year 2005 dates are:
Rosh Hashana (New Year) Tues. 4 October
Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) Thurs. 13 October
1st Day of Succot (Tabernacles) Tues. 18 October
8th Day of Succot Tues. 25 October
Simchat Torah (Rejoicing of the Law) Wed. 26 October
The Jewish day begins at sunset which means, for example, Rosh Hashana begins at sunset on Monday 3rd October.
Pope Francis warned the leader of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Kirill, not to become “Putin’s altar boy,” he said in an interview this week.
Soldiers from the breakaway state of South Ossetia—speaking to South Ossetian leader Anatoly Bibilov at a meeting publicized by the independent news outlet MediaZona—rattled off a list of complaints about faulty equipment, lack of leadership and intel, and brainless tactics.
RAID: Shadow Legends South Ossetia, which relies heavily on military and financial aid from Russia, sent troops to Ukraine in late March to “defend Russia.” Ukrainian military officials said at the time that some 150 South Ossetian troops were joining forces with Russia, but Tskhinvali never gave any official figures.
Many of the soldiers are said to be part of Russian military units based in South Ossetia; Moscow and Tskhinvali struck a deal in 2017 to partially incorporate their armed forces.
But reports soon surfaced of many of them refusing to take part in the fight, vowing not to become “cannon fodder.”
“Nobody got scared here, it’s just that they deceived us at every step,” one of the soldiers told Bibilov of their decision to abandon the fight.
“Of the 11 days [that we were there,] I wouldn’t even wish on an enemy what happened there. All the equipment didn’t work, I’m telling you straight… There was no command staff,” another soldier told the South Ossetian leader.
Former President Donald Trump‘s Department of Homeland Security delayed and altered an intelligence report related to Russian interference in the 2020 election, making changes that “appear to be based in part on political considerations,” according to a newly released watchdog report.
The April 26 Homeland Security inspector general’s assessment provides a damning look at the way DHS’ Office of Intelligence and Analysis dealt with intelligence related to Russia’s efforts to interfere in the US, stating the department had deviated from its standard procedures in modifying assessments related to Moscow’s targeting of the 2020 presidential election.
Democrat Sen. Raphael Warnock, who is always an ordained minister, was slammed on social media Monday night after labeling himself as a “pro-choice” pastor.
“As a pro-choice pastor, I’ve always believed that a patient’s room is way too small for a woman, her doctor, and the United States government,” the Georgia Democrat tweeted Monday night following the leak of a Supreme Court document indicating majority support for overturning Roe v. Wade. “I’ll always fight to protect a woman’s right to choose. And that will never change.”
If we are to subscribe to the religious basis that much of anti-abortion sentiment lives in, then it stands to reason that we must also believe in the existence of the anti-christ. There can be no God without the Devil, and so on. Finally, the Bringer of the Final Dawn, the Undoer, can appear, confident in their emergence. When the sonogram shows what look like ghostly horns, and the mark of the beast on their hand or forehead, there will be no recourse to avoid the coming end. Even now, these identifying characteristics of the Son of the Beast will likely only display after the first trimester.
The unlucky mother will be forced to carry the evil in her stomach to term, despite nightly audible cackling, the murders of crows constantly roosting on the roof of her home, and the strange offerings left nightly on the doorstep by stray black cats. Her bank account will be drained over time simply by the cost of replacing the light bulbs that shatter every time the harbinger kicks. Nearing the due date, her ears will ring constantly, and she’ll be almost completely unable to properly hydrate due to any water she attempts to consume turning to blood in her hands.
