It was the first time many had celebrated on the actual date when God became man.
The ten days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) are traditionally designated as a time of preparation for judgment. It is believed that on the first day, God opens three books:
The Incarnation is the most important and least understood event in history. While Israel ignores it, the Church celebrates it on the wrong day!
Yes, indeed I suggest that the second greatest miracle ever (the first being His Resurrection) is the Incarnation, God becoming a man. But did it happen in December?
My intention here is NOT to argue, debate, judge or to try to change anyone’s mind. Personally I love the celebratory atomosphere and the fact that the name of Jesus is on so many lips. My intention here is to give you information.
