Who then is this man in Red ? What are these strange symbols we see ? What is the significance of Dec 24th ? Is he conceived on 24th kislev, the seed of the Ashera (womb) born 9 months later on Yom Simchateinu in a booth (Sukkah), a manger, a granary ?
" Pay attention now, from this day and before-from the 24th day of the ninth month [Kislev]- from the day that the Temple of the Lord was founded, pay attention !
The Seed is still in the Granary (womb), and the grapevines, the fig trees, the pomegranate trees, and the olive trees have not yet borne -from this day I will bless." And the word of the Lord came a second time on the twenty-fourth of the month, saying: I am shaking up the heaven and the earth.... On that day, says the Lord of Hosts, I will take you, My servant; says the Lord, and I will make you as a signet; for I have chosen you, says the Lord of Hosts. (Haggai 2:18-19)
"Who is this coming from Edom, with soiled garments, from Bozrah, this one who was stately in His apparel, girded with the greatness of His strength? "I am speaking of the most righteous Yeshua. Why is your clothing red ? Why are your garments red?’ אֲנִי מְדַבֵּר צדיקים רַב ישִׁוֹעַ: ..... The kind acts of the Lord I will mention, the praises of the Lord, according to all that the Lord bestowed upon us, and much good to the house of Israel, which He bestowed upon them according to His mercies and according to His many kind acts... And He became their Savior."
And His people remembered the days of old, [the days of] Moses; where is he who drew them up from the sea, [like] a shepherd His flock; where is he who placed within them His Holy Spirit? He led at Moses' right the arm of His glory, splitting the water before them to make for Himself an everlasting name.... For You are our Father, for Abraham did not know us, neither did Israel recognize us; You, O Lord, are our Father; our redeemer of old is your name." (Isaiah 63)
