Sub-Topic: Preparatory message to Rock in Christ now, and on our Journey with Him as a team throughout 2016
Beloved I invite you to take a spiritual journey by faith with me through the Word of God way back to B.C. 430 and read the events of Malachi Chapter 4:1-6, which will be the starting point of our journey and blessings in preparation to Rock in Christ on our Journey with Him as a team throughout 2016. And from Malachi (Old Testament) we will travel forward 435 years to about A.D. 5 when our journey, with bigger blessings and greater insight into the Word of God continues, once we believe the Word from the heart. Are you with me? Are you ready for this type of journey through the Word of God? If you are, then please turn your Bible (KVC) to the Book of Malachi, Chapter 4, and read from verse 1to verse 6. Thank you.
Malachi’s message to the proud and the God-fearing in Israel
Malachi’s message here is about the Sovereignty of Yahweh. And the Prophet says to Israel that a day is coming that shall burn as an oven, and that all the proud and all that do wickedly shall be stubble: and the day which is going to come shall burn them up, to the extent that there shall be no trace of them.
However, unlike his message to the proud and wicked in Israel, the Prophesy in verses 2 & 3,5 & 6, refers to the God-fearing in Israel , it says, “But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in His wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, said the Lord of hosts.” Remember ye the Law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto Him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: and he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.” [Malachi 4:1-6]
My revelation knowledge gained along our journey from Malachi Chapter 4 to Luke chapter 1and 2: 1-20
With this knowledge of Yahweh’s will and `with the understanding, we leave the Book of Malachi and turn our pages to Luke Chapter 1 to see the fulfillment of some of prophesies of Malachi Chapter 4. We want to know the certainty of specific events of the period, from about A.D.5 –A.D.6 among the God-fearing, and righteous line in Israel, in the forty second generation from Abraham—the generation to which both John the Baptist and Jesus the Christ was born. To support this truth, “It is written, “So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations,; and from David to until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations (14 x 3 = 42).” [Matthew 1:17]
In Luke’s account, both the aged Zacharias a priest of the course of Abia, and his wife Elizabeth (who is barren) of the daughters of Aaron, are righteous couples and are walking before God blameless. [Luke 1:6] Zacharias sees an angel at the right side of the altar while doing his priestly duties and is afraid. But the angel says to him, “Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elizabeth shall bear the a son, and thou shall call his name John. And thou shall have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth… and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb. And many of the children of Israel shall be turned to the Lord their God. And he shall go before Him in the Spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. ” [Luke 1:13-17]
Zacharias is in doubt –and questions the angel by a mindset that accepts the facts of life as they are, that is, on the basis that he and his wife are senior citizens and his wife is barren, instead of one that exercises faith in God for a miracle…. As a result of his doubts about the words of the angel, Zacharias becomes dumb temporary, for at least for 9 months and eight days… because the angel says to him, “I am Gabriel that stands in the presence of God; and am sent to speak to thee, and to show thee glad tidings. And behold thou shall be dumb, and not able to speak until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season.” [Luke 1:19-20] Subsequently, he is out of the temple and still speechless, but is communicating to the people through signs for the time being. It is Elul, August-September, Zacharias accomplishes his days of ministration in the temple and is departing to go “to his own house,” [Luke 1:23] to exercise his faith for a son, of course. And why not!
Elizabeth conceives in the first month, Tishri, that is, September 15-October 14
Bless Yahweh, Elizabeth conceives in the first month, Tishri, that is, September-October and hides herself for the next five months; the fifth month is Shebat, or, January- February, because she says, “Thus hath the Lord dealth with me in the days wherein he looked on me, to take away my reproach among men.” [Luke 1:24-25] It is now the sixth month, Adar, and Yahweh is sending Gabriel to Nazareth, a City of Galilee, with a message to a virgin whose name is Mary.
The dialogue between Angel Gabriel and Mary
The angel Gabriel finds Mary, whose fiancé is Joseph of the house of David, and to her surprise he salutes her and said, “Hail, thou that are highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. The salutation troubles Mary and while thinking about it, the Angel continues his message and says, “And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a Son and shall call His name JESUS. He shall be great and shall be called THE SON of the HIGHEST: AND THE Lord God shall give unto Him the throne of his father David: and he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there shall be no end.” [Luke 1:30-33] Then Mary says to the angel, “How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?” In reply the angel says, “The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the highest shall over shadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. And, behold, thy cousin Elizabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. For with God nothing shall be impossible.” [Luke 1:31-37]
Mary accepts the words of the Angel and says, “Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word.” [Luke 1:38] And she became pregnant before she vivited Elizabeth.
Mary visits Elizabeth and her baby leaps into her womb
Interestingly, with the knowledge of Yahweh’s will for Elizabeth, and for herself, Mary, with no little haste arrives at a City of Judah, enters Zacharias’s house and salutes Elizabeth, who upon hearing Mary’s salutation, the baby leaps into her womb and, in addition, Elizabeth receives a filling of the Holy Spirit, too. [Luke 1:39-41] So the month Adar, February 15 –March 14, A.D. 5 is a special one for the two cousins because Elizabeth is now in her sixth month of pregnancy while Mary is in her first month. Mary is staying with Elizabeth and is leaving in the next three months which is Sivan, May 15 – June 14 A.D. 5. This means that Mary will return home in Sivan, in her fourth month of pregnancy, and days before Elizabeth’s baby is born. Now Elizabeth’s full time is come (9 months) and she gives birth to a son, in Sivan, within the period May 15 – June 14, A.D.5, according to the knowledge of Yahweh’s will.
Zacharias names His son
It is now the eight day and they gather together to circumcise the child, and even call “him Zacharias after the name of his father,” [Luke 1:59] according to their custom. However, Elizabeth says, “not so: but he shall be called John.” [Luke 1:59] Still in disagreement, they are asking Zacharias to name the child and as he confirms the name John in writing, “his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spake, and praised God.” [Luke 1:63-64] Let us give Yahweh praise, too, in Jesus’ name.
Zacharias speaks again and prophecies being filled with the Holy Ghost
As a result, Zacharias spoke again but this time with a song of praise in his mouth, and even prophesied being “filled with the Holy Ghost.”[Luke 1:67-79] Amen. Let us give Yahweh praise. Now we will journey from the hilly country of Judah to the City Nazareth thence to Galilee where Mary lives. But Mary and Joseph are in Bethlehem, in their own City of David, to pay their tax, according to a decree from Caesar Augustus, in A.D. 6, which is to tax the whole world. [Luke 2:1-4] And guess what, Mary is in her full nine months of pregnancy and in about A.D. 6, in the month of Heshvan, between October 15–November 14, she gives birth to a Son and wraps him “in swaddling clothes,” and lays Him “in a manger; “ because there is “no room for them in the inn.” [Luke 2: 5-7] Subsequently, Angels in rejoicing and praising mood visit the shepherds in the area and tell them about the child wrapped in swaddling clothes … “And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of heavenly host praising God, and saying:
Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, good will toward men.” [Luke 2:14]
My Comment: A man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
It is the very Christ who is the end of the law, and therefore the end of the law of works for righteousness. [Romans 10:4] And it is through Christ the law of faith came into effect. Therefore a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. So the law is not made void through faith, but rather we establish the law through faith. [Romans 3:28-31] For example, Zacharias defied his tradition of naming his child after him, exercised his faith in God, obeyed His Word and wrote, “His name is John.” [Luke 1:60] Prior to this the aged Zacharias went into his aged wife, who was called barren, and she conceived, and brought forth a son, according to the knowledge of Yahweh’s will, and this was also an act of faith on their part, too. Interestingly, these experiences were early signs of a new era of grace through the more establish law of faith, that brought about radical changes to the lives and tradition of the God-fearing and those of a righteous line in Israel, according to Yahweh’s will. In fulfillment of prophecy, the forerunner John the Baptist, and the promised Messiah was born in the months of Sivan, between May 15 and June 14, A.D. 5, and Heshvan, between October 15 and November 14, A.D.6 respectively. (John was six months older than Jesus, you see.)
We Jews inwardly and believers in every nation as a whole must exercise our faith in Yahweh, the Most High, and rise to the highest possible spiritual levels― to Rock in Christ now, and as a team in our Journey with Him throughout 2016. Let us give Yahweh the highest praise, Halleluiah!!! Let us share His peace with others and demonstrate His good will towards men. Amen
As the multitudes of heavenly hosts, together we say, “Glory to Yahweh in the highest; and on earth peace, good will toward men!” Amen.
May the God of peace richly bless you and your household, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
