March 13 2016, Here is a small portion of what I was shown regarding the nativity of Christ. It was during the fall when Jesus was born. For being such a poor and simple place, it was filled with unspeakable joy.
“I saw the very beginning. I was expecting to start at His baptism, for I kind of planned how this would go and what questions I would ask, but He took me right to the beginning. I saw the star, kind of low on the horizon. It was the combining of two stars and was bright and I knew it was the star talked about in scripture.
I then saw the shepherds. These were not just your average sheepherders. These men were dedicated students of prophesy and scripture. They were watching over the flocks when their spiritual eyes were opened and they saw the heavens in its glory. They heard the harmonics and joyful praising of the Angels and were met by Seraphim proclaiming the good news. These shepherd’s joy was indescribable. They hugged each other as they ran over the hills to where the stable was located in a grotto on the side of one of the hills. There were about twelve of them and they were all men, some older.
The baby Jesus was wrapped tightly in cloth and sleeping. His skin was white and pink. Mary was only about 14 years old, which was far younger than I expected. Joseph seemed to be about 35 years old I think. I don’t know for sure how old, and it appeared he was a widower to my understanding. They were very happy as they showed off the newborn child to the shepherds and the shepherds were praising God joyfully as they each took turns looking and congratulating. As they left a couple of them stopped to tell Mary and Joseph how they came to know about the Christ child. These shepherds never forgot what they saw, but kept it to themselves as the Spirit cautioned them.”
