Chirevo chakanyanya chakabatanidzwa paKisimusi naiye theocophist ndechekuti Kristu musimboti kwete munhu, musimboti uyo unosunungura pfungwa kubva mukunyepedzera kukuru kwekuparadzaniswa, unoswededza murume padhuze nemweya yevarume uye unomubatanidza pachimiro rudo rweVamwari nehungwaru. Zuva chiratidzo chemwenje yechokwadi. Zuva rinopfuura muchiratidzo che capricorn pa 21st zuva raDecember pakupera kwemaitiro ake ekumaodzanyemba. Zvadaro kune mazuva matatu apo pasina kuwedzera kwehurefu hwavo uye ipapo pazuva re25th raZvita zuva rinotanga kosi yake yekuchamhembe uye saka anonzi akazvarwa. Vakuru vakapemberera chiitiko ichi nemitambo uye nemufaro, vachiziva kuti nekuuya kwezuva nguva yechando ichipfuura, mbeu dzakakwenenzverwa nemwenje weChiedza uye kuti pasi pasi pesimba rezuva raizobereka michero. Iyo theosophist inorangarira Kisimusi kubva kune akawanda masuo: sekuzvarwa kwezuva mune chiratidzo capricorn, yaizoshanda kune yepanyama; kune rumwe rutivi uye muchimiro chengano ndiko kuberekwa kwezuva risingaoneki remwenje, iye Kristu Musimboti.

Dai Jesu aiva munhu chaiye nei zvichiitika kuti hatinazve nhoroondo yezvakaitika zvekuberekwa kana hupenyu hwomunhu akadaro kupfuura chirevo chebhaibheri?

Ichokwadi kuti hatina nhoroondo yakamboitika yekuzvarwa kwaJesu kana yehupenyu hwake. Kunyangwe kurehwa kuri munaJosephus kuna Jesu kunotaurwa nezviremera kuve kududzira. Iko kusavapo rekodhi kwakadaro kwakakosha kudiki zvichienzaniswa neidi rekuti dzidziso dzakakamurwa dzakatenderedza hunhu, ingave kana kwete hunhu hwakafadza kana chaihwo. Dzidziso dziripo uye chimwe chemachechi makuru epasirese vanopupurira hunhu. Mwaka chaiwo wakazvarwa Jesu, kunyangwe nyowani wezve dzidziso akasvibiswa anogona kudoma chokwadi. “Vatungamiriri” vacho havana kubvumirana. Vamwe vanoti zvakatangira AD 1; vamwe vanoti zvakange zvakanonoka seAD 6. Pasinei nezviremera vanhu vanoramba vakabatirira kusvika kunguva inozivikanwa nekarenda yaJulian. Jesu anogona kunge aive murume chaiye uye achiri kusazivikanwa kuvanhu sevese, panguva yehupenyu hwake. Zvinogona kuitika ndezvekuti Jesu aive mudzidzisi airaira vanoverengeka veavo vakave vadzidzi vake, izvo vadzidzi vakagamuchira dzidziso yake uye vakaparidza dzidziso dzake. Vadzidzisi vanowanzouya pakati pevarume, asi hazviwanzo kuzivikanwa pasi. Ivo vanosarudza izvo zvakanyanya kukodzera kuti vagamuchire dzidziso-dzechinyakare uye vozviraira, asi ivo havazvipinze munyika uye kunodzidzisa. Kana zvirizvo zvirizvo zvakaitika kuna Jesu zvichazvidavirira vanyori venhau venguva iyoyo vasina kuziva nezvake.

Pazuva re25th raDecember, kana zuva parinopinda chiratidzo che capricorn, muviri wemunhu, uchipa wakadarika nekudzidziswa kwese nekuvandudzwa, wakanyatsokodzera kuti mhemberero yakadaro iitike. Gadziriro dzakapfuura dzinodikanwa ndeyekuti hupenyu hwekuchena hwakakwana hurarame, uye kuti pfungwa dzinofanira kuve dzakadzidziswa zvakanaka uye hunyanzvi, uye kuve nekugona kuenderera chero mutsara webasa kune chero urefu hwenguva.

Kwakaitwa izvi maitiro anodikanwa akapfuurirwamo. Nguva yakasvika, mhemberero yakaitika, uye kekutanga muviri usingafi uyo kwenguva refu wanga uchigadziriswa mukati memuviri wenyama pakupedzisira wabuda mumuviri wenyama uye wakazvarwa kuburikidza nawo. Mutumbi uyu, unonzi muviri waJesu, hausi wemuviri weredral kana kuti linga sharira unotaurwa nezvake nevanoongorora nezvenyorwa, uye haisi chero yemiviri inoratidzika pamashure kana kuti isvikiro rinoshandisa.
