Today is Sunday, December 6th, which on the Hebrew calendar is the 24th of the month of Kislev, one day before Chanukkah, 25th of Kislev.
I believe that today may be very significant, that it may be the biblical date of Yeshua’s Conception in the virgin Miriam. I have written two booklets showing many proofs for why I believe that Yeshua was born on Succoth.
But the real miracle was His Conception, when He entered the earth, when the Love of God came into the earth, to restore our sonship back to God, and His Conception was nine months before His birth. Remember that John jumped in the womb of Elisheva when Miriam greeted her, a few weeks later.
The LORD will give you a sign, “the virgin shall conceive …” Isaiah 7:14
Haggai 2:18, 19 talks about this specific date, when the Foundation of the LORD’s Temple was laid, and gives the date of the 24th of Kislev, which normally is nine months before Succoth.

Thoughts for prayer and thanksgiving.

During the Feast of Dedication, Chanukkah, John 10:36, is the first of three times in the Gospels we find Yeshua talking about being sent into the world. Yeshua, the Son of God, was sent into the world at the time of His Conception in virgin Miriam, the 24th of Kislev, 9 months before Succoth.
Most believers in Yeshua know that Yeshua was not born on Christmas day, the 25th of December. Many of us believe that Yeshua’s real birthday happened during the Feast of Succoth.
John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and tabernacled among us, and we beheld His Glory, the Glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of Grace and Truth.
However, what is rarely focused on concerning our Lord’s coming to the earth is that nine months prior to His Birthday was His Conception. Was His Conception prophesied in the Scriptures? And was this the time around the Chanukkah season when these very special events happened that are recorded in Luke, chapter 1?
Luke 1:24-37 And after those days his wife Elisheva conceived, and hid herself five months … And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. And the virgin’s name
was Miriam. And the angel came in to her, and said, “Rejoice, you that are highly favored, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women.” And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of greeting this should be. And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Miriam, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you shall Conceive in your womb, and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Yeshua, He shall be Great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest. And the LORD God shall give to 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.” Then Miriam said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?” And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the Power of the Highest will overshadow you. Therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called ‘the Son of God’. Now indeed, your close relative [karov, in Hebrew] Elisheva (of Aaron), has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren.
For with God nothing will be impossible!”
Luke 1:13-15 But the angel (Gabriel) said to him, “Fear not, Zechariah, for your prayer is heard; and your wife Elisheva will bear you a son, and you shall call his name ‘Yochanan’. And you will have joy and gladness, and many shall rejoice at his birth. For he will be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink. He will also be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb.”
Luke 1:39-44 Now Miriam arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Judah, and entered into the house of Zechariah, and saluted Elisheva. And it happened, that when Elisheva heard the greeting of Miriam, that the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisheva was filled with the Holy Spirit. Then she spoke out with a loud voice, and said, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the Fruit of your womb. And why is this granted to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For, indeed, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.”
The baby Yochanan was filled with the Holy Spirit, and he leaped for joy in the womb of his mother Elisheva, because the Son of God, Yeshua, had come into the earth at Conception during this special season, and was Alive and well, living with God the Holy Spirit, within the womb of His mother Miriam. God’s Divine Life of Divine Love had now entered the earth for mankind.
The human Life of the Son of God began at His Conception. Life begins at conception! This is true for every human being!
Was Yeshua’s Conception prophesied in the Old Testament?
Where is this found in the Scriptures and what does it say?
“Therefore the LORD Himself will give you a Sign: Behold, the virgin shall Conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanu El (God with us).” Isaiah 7:14
But did God also reveal to us in His Word what time of year it would be when this Great Event would happen;and also did God reveal to us about a specific Day?
￼￼￼￼￼This prophetic Scripture is found in Haggai 2:18, 19,“Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, (the 9th Hebrew month is the month of Kislev) even from the day that the foundation of the LORD’s Temple was laid, [This is the Day of our Lord Yeshua’s Conception!] consider it … from this day I will bless you.”Haggai 2:18,19
The 24th of the ninth month is the 24th of the month Kislev; Chunakkah always begins the 25th of Kislev and lasts eight days. In the year, 2011, the 24th of Kislev fell on the 20th of December. In the year 2005, the 24th of Kislev fell on Christmas day, on December 25th. In 2016 it will fall on December 24th.
Also can we find any evidence of this Truth of Yeshua’s Conception being taught by Yeshua in any of the Gospel’s?
Where? Let’s read about it in the book of John 10:22-38
Now it was the Feast of Dedication (Chanukkah, the 25th of Kislev) in Jerusalem, and it was winter. And Jesus walked in the temple, in Solomon’s porch. Then the Jews surrounded Him and said to Him, “How long do You keep us in doubt? If You are the Messiah, tell us plainly.” Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father’s name, they bear witness of Me. But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them Eternal Life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is Greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are One!” Then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him. Jesus answered them, ￼￼￼￼￼￼“Many good works I have shown you from My Father. For which of those works do you stone Me?” The Jews answered Him, saying, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a Man, make Yourself God.” Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Torah, ‘I said, “You are gods” ’? (Psalm 82:6) “If He called them gods, to whom the Word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken), do you say of Him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, (verse 36) ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’ ?
If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; but if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the Works, that you may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him.” John 10:22-38
Do you see it? Yeshua was telling them during the time of Chanukkah, probably on the 25th of Kislev, that His Father had sent Him into the world. He spoke this the day after Kislev 24, His Conception. He was sent into the world at His Conception by His Father nine months before Birth at Succoth.
Conception in the virgin Miriam was when the foundation of the LORD’s Temple was laid … on the 24th of Kislev. And here, during Chanukkah, was the one time and place in the Gospel’s where Yeshua spoke about His Father sending Him into the world. He was telling His secret on Chanukkah.. . .Read More
