Insinuations that Jesus Christ had a wife are devilish, Africa Celebrates Christmas the Hard Way. The annual celebration of Jesus Christ's birth has become a financial burden for people. This is a mistake. The resurrected Jesus did not just stick around for 40 days and then retreat to the safety of heaven, his work on earth now done. The ascended Jesus remains forever fully human, as well as fully divine and fully involved. This revelation helps us to understand the nature of his High Priesthood. Jesus is eternally our Intercessor.

The nativity of Jesus, nativity of Christ, birth of Christ or birth of Jesus is described in the Biblical gospels of Luke and two accounts agree that Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, his mother Mary was betrothed to a man named Joseph, who was descended from King David and was not his biological father, and that his birth was caused by divine intervention.

Christmas and the celebration of Christ’s birth are two things that must always be kept separate in our thinking!. However, this has become impossible for many Christians in this age because of the impression created by the erroneous but long-established traditions of men that Christmas IS all about Christ’s birth.

The date of birth of Jesus is not stated in the gospels or in any historical reference, but most theologians assume a year of birth between 6 BC and 4 BC.

Almost 2, years ago a young woman from the town of Nazareth named Mary was visited by an angel named Gabriel. He was, however, making a very important point: We should never celebrate Jesus’ birth at Christmastime—and then forget Him the rest of the year.

After all, just because we celebrate our children’s birthdays doesn’t mean we forget them or ignore them the rest of the year. They are an important part of our lives, and our relationship. In other words, 1, years before Jesus was born, there existed the Annunciation, Immaculate Conception, Birth and Adoration of the Divine child, that is, the complete, derived Christian nativity scene as described in the gospel, but already occurring and depicted in ancient Kemet (Egypt).
