Birth of a Manchild
Stephen Paul's Birth - A New Beginning
written on his birth date - September 11th 1999 - by his father Paul
Conceived on New Year's day January one,
And born on the Jewish New Millennium,
Rosh Hashanna, and Feast of Trumpets the same.
So sound a trumpet, and fan the flame,
Stephen Paul is a miracle new beginning!
I find today's Sabbath Scripture reading interesting to note,
That on this day all Jews read what Isaiah wrote:
"Before she travailed, she gave birth;
Before her pain came, she delivered a male child.
Who has heard of such a thing?
Who has seen such things?
Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day?
Or shall a nation be born at once?
For as soon as Zion travailed, she gave birth to her children.
Shall I bring to the time of birth, and not cause delivery?
Says the Lord.
Shall I who cause delivery shut up the womb?
Says your God." (Isaiah 66:7-9)
For this one (Stephen
Paul) was born in Zion!
On this day: September eleventh nineteen ninety nine,
There appeared in heaven the
Revelation chapter twelve sign.
It never happened before and never will again in our time.
T'was Virgo giving birth to the moon,
Declaring that Jesus is coming soon!
How will this be done? you ask,
For the glory of God is no small task.
Stephen Paul has the answer in his weight,
The number of double GRACE: 5 lbs. 5 oz. was his fate.
Born in the 7th hour of the 7th Jewish month was his date.
Not by might, nor by power,
But by Yahweh's sevenfold Spirit in this hour.
As lightening flashes in the sky,
No flesh will glory, it must die.
I am reminded of a thought I will share,
Psalms 102 about "the set time to favor Zion" is there.
Here I see God's timing which makes me stare:
"God will arise and have mercy on Zion,
For the time to favor her, Yes, the set time has come.
For your servants take pleasure in her stones, and show favor to her dust.
So shall the nations fear the name of the LORD,
And all kings of the earth Your glory.
For the LORD shall build up Zion; He shall appear in His GLORY.
He shall regard the prayer of the destitute,
And shall not despise their prayer." Ps. 102:13-17
What an awesome new thing to behold!
When in my arms little Stephen I hold.
A new thing has been born today,
God bringing life from dust and clay.
I think of Israel and Ezekiel's bones,
which are destined to live as Jesus clones.
The trumpet has been blown, the time is now here,
For the new age of God on earth to appear!
Stephen (means crowned one) Paul (means humble) Jablonowski
You were born for a purpose - fulfill your destiny in Christ!
The Following day: 11/12/99
Some other interesting things surrounding Stephens birth include:
1) The doctor telling Linda (my wife) that "today is a day of rest."
The 1,000 year millennial reign of Christ is to be a "day of rest."
Today's Feast day is considered a High Sabbath (day of rest).
2) At Huntsville Hospital when Stephen went into the nursery for the
first time there were 12 boys and only one girl... "she delivered
a male child" (Isa. 66:7
and Rev. 12:5).
I overheard a doctor commenting on how unusual this was. I found out officially
there were 11 boys and 4 girls born on Friday the 10th, and 6 boys and
1 girl born on Saturday the 11th.
3) Two other things, besides the Feast of Trumpets, are mentioned in
the Scriptures to have specifically taken place on Stephen's birth date
(1st day of the 7th Jewish month):
- Genesis 8:13
-- It was a new beginning for Noah because, "the waters were
dried up from the earth; and Noah removed the covering of the ark and
looked and indeed the surface of the ground was dry."
- Ezra 3:1-7 -- It was a new beginning for Ezra and the captives who
returned from Babylon to restore the sacrificial worship system in Jerusalem.
"The people gathered together as one man to Jerusalem... from
the first day of the seventh month they began to offer burnt offerings
to the LORD." Also, Nehemiah 8:1-12
-- "All the people gathered together as one man in the open
square" and Ezra read to them from the Book of the Law
from morning until midday. They were repentant and sorrowful because
they weren't doing these things, but Ezra encouraged them and said,
"Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions
to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our LORD.
Do not sorrow, for the joy of the LORD is your strength."
