The birth of Jesus Christ at Christmas

December 24, 25 and January 6

By carefully reading the Bible and not listen to dogmas, we understand that Jesus was not born on December 25, because it is in the middle of the winter in Israel and no shepherds are sleeping outside, it is too cold! (Luke 2:8)

There is no reference in the Bible or in non-conical scripture to any
"celebration of the birthday of Jesus".

However, in the days before, under and after Jesus people were celebrating the birthday
of the solar divinty Mithras on December 25.
Mithras was born in a cave and his birthday was witnessed by shepherds.
Jesus birth was also witnessed by shepherds, but he was born in a stable.
The ancient winter solstice, December 25, signifies the rebirth of the
Unconquered Sun (Sol Invictus).

The Roman harvest festival of Saturnalia begun on December 17 and ended on December 24.
This is the reason why some christian nation celebrate his birthday on December 24 instead of December 25.

Some Christians, however does not celebrate Jesus birthday on December 25, but on January 6. The same day as a major pre-Christian holy day in the ancient world.
The Egyptian God "Aeon"- the personification of Infinite Time was born by a virgin on January 6.
Jesus was also born by a virgin and has the same nature as Aeon (Infinite Time).
-"He is alpha and omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last, he who is, who was, and who is to come." (Revelation 1:8, 21:6, 22:13)

Emil said: "This Christmas Morning; to you I suppose it is the day Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ, was born; to you He must typify the Great Mediator between you and your God.

You seem to appeal Jesus as a mediator between you and your God, who seems to be a stern and, at times, an angry God sitting off somewhere in a place called heaven, located where, I do not know, expect it to be in man's consciousness.

You seem to be able to reach God only through His less austere and more loving Son, the great and noble One whom we all called Blessed, and whose advent in the world this day commemorates. To us this day means more; to us this day not only means the advent into this world of Jesus, the Christ, but also this birth typifies the birth of Christ in every human consciousness.

This Christmas Day means the birth of the great Master and Teacher, the Great Liberator of mankind from material bondage and limitations. To us this great soul came on earth to show more fully thee way to the real God, the great Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Omniscient One; to show that God is all Goodness, all Wisdom, all Thruth, All in All.

This Great Master, who came to this world this day, was sent to show more fully that God not only dwells without us, but within us, that He never is, nor can be, seperated from us or any of His creations; that He is all things; knows all things; knows all and is all Truth.

Had I the understanding of all men, it is beyond my power to express to you, even in a humble way, what this Holy Birth means to us.

We are fully convinced and we hope you also will see, that this Great Master and Teacher came to us that we might have a fuller understanding of life here on earth; that all mortal limitations are but man-made, and in no other way should they be interpreted.

We know that this greatest of all teacher came to show more fully that the Christ in Him and through whom He did His mighty works is the same Christ that lives in you, in me and in all mankind;
that we can by applying His teaching do all the works that He did and greater works.

We believe that Jesus came to show more fully that God is the one great and only cause of all things, that God is All.

Emil's Mother said: We have to look upon three events. One that happened long ago, the one that typifies the Birth of the Christ Consciousness in man, the birth of the Babe Jesus. Then the one we can see coming when your great nation accepts and realizes the Christ Consciousness.

Then we love to turn to the third and the last, the greatest of all splendors, the second and last coming of the Christ when all know and accept the Christ within, and live and unfold this consciousness and grow as the lilies grow. This is the Atonement (At-one-ment)."
