Posted on 12/31/2010 5:22:49 PM PST by BillKneer
Those of us who are liturgical Christians, are still celebrating Christmas, still six days to go. Unlike the song, we dont have presents everyday, but we do reflect on the meaning of the incarnation.
January the first is the eighth day of Christmas. In the Gospel of Luke, we learn that on the eighth day after his birth, that Jesus was circumcised, so it is fitting that we remember that event on the first of January.
We see several items in this one event. First, the early church fathers tell us that this is the first time we see Jesus shedding his blood to complete the law. Secondly we learn that even as a baby, (through his parents actions), Jesus keeps the law. It is the third item that will be considered today. A Jewish child is named when he is circumcised. We are told in Luke, that upon his circumcision, he was given the name of Jesus. Jesus comes from the Aramaic (the language spoken in Israel at that time), Yeshua, which comes from Yah Shua, or God saves. In other words, Jesuss name proclaims what he was coming into the world for.

All hail King Jesus—Yeshua Hamashiach. Of His kingdom there will be no end! AMEN!
Who is Yeshua?.....
Praise the LORD GOD of Israel and His only begotten Son Jesus Christ our Lord for the great mercy and love and eternal kingdom all His saved saints will enjoy because Christ Jesus died for our sins and rose again the third day and overcame death, hell and the grave for all those who believe on Him. He has destroyed death and him that has the power of death, that is the devil, and Jesus has given all His believing saints power to become the sons of God by believing on Him as Lord and as Savior and coming King of the earth.
Happy New Year fellow Christians and freepers.
Amen & Amen!
“Let everything that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.” (Psalm 150:6)
I kneel before HIM... I am HIS.
Yeshua, translated from Hebrew= Salvation. Yeshua the untranslated name of Christ.
Blessings to all!
