Birthday celebrations are mentioned three times in the Holy Scriptures. Two times in the old testament and one time in the new. One of my brothers said in a fellowship that in all of these three events, someone died. When I mentioned this to someone who celebrates birthdays, he said that that is just a coincidence. These conversations are what inspired me to study these birthday celebrations. I used the following principles to study God’s Word:
1Co 10:11 And all these things as types did happen to those persons, and they were written for our admonition, to whom the end of the ages did come,
1Co 2:13 These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual with spiritual.
Luk 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you
Rev 1:3 Blessed is the one who reads and hears the Words of this prophecy, and the ones keeping the things written in it, for the time is near.
