Hello brothers and sisters and hello to anyone new to my channel.
Through these last three or four years, the Lord has been focused on getting His Body purified and ready to be taken up to heaven with Him. He has been separating His true followers from the lukewarm and from the world. He has called us to come away from all worldly things so that we may be holy and spotless. This is why He called many to get their houses in order. That command was about your spiritual house.
Last week on Monday night (December 13th to 14th), the Lord layed the idolatry of Christmas very heavily upon my spirit. He does not want His children celebrating the holiday. For the past several years He has caused me to become more and more disgusted with the holiday and with the way it is celebrated.
Though everyone says Christmas is about Jesus, no one mentions the name of Christ, no one prays and gives Him thanks for coming into this world and giving us the gift of salvation, no one sings songs to Him in His honor, no one does the works of Christ in giving to the less fortunate and the homeless. When, how, and where are they honoring Jesus during the holiday season?
The holiday is supposed to be celebrated as His birthday, atleast that is what we’re told in Christianity. But usually, when you celebrate someone’s birthday, the celebration is all about them and for them. The host and the guests of the party usually sing happy birthday to the person whose birthday it is, they may tell stories about that person or say something about how they’ve been inspired by that person, and then they give gifts to the person. But no one does this in honor of Jesus. His supposed birthday celebration is not really about Him or for Him.
Instead, we put up a tree and decorate it, we work all the hours we can work to buy gifts for those who don’t really need them, we bake holiday cookies and pies, people drink to get drunk, we sing songs of Santa Clause and the bells that jingle on his sleigh or about his brand new bag or just about the holiday cheer and the gifts we receive. But the Lord rebukes this tradition and worship of the tree, the Santa Clause, and the Consumerism. People spend money on needless desires and they lust for more material things as they spend more time working and away from home so they can afford their toys and trinkets. These acts are idolatry and He says, ‘Thou shalt have no other gods before me.’ (Exodus 20:3)
The Christmas holiday is not about or for Christ and nowhere in the Bible does it say anything about celebrating birthdays. So where does this come from?
There is a legend that says Nimrod, the great-grandson of Noah, had a wife by the name of Semiramis. She was like Eve or Jezebel. She influenced him to rebel against God and build the Tower of Babel.
Semiramis was a worshiper of the sun, moon, and stars. She was likely the one who influenced the world to begin worshiping the creation rather than the creator.
This legend also tells that Semiramis got pregnant shortly after Nimrod died, making her pregnancy the original immaculate birth. And she told everyone Nimrod had not died but transformed into the sun. So the people began worshiping Nimrod as the god of the sun. This was likely the beginning of the belief in reincarnation.
For those of you who are new to Christianity, the Word of God says, ‘It is appointed once for man to die and then the judgment.’ (Hebrews 9:27) There is no such thing as reincarnation. We do not die and come back as birds or butterflies or some other creation. We live the life we have been given and when it is our appointed time to die, we go into our eternity.
When Semiramis gave birth, she had a son that she named Tammuz, on December the 25th.
This was not only the beginning of sun worship, but it was also the original story of the child born on December the 25th by immaculate conception. Semiramis was the original Mary. However, there was only one woman whom God granted pregnancy to as a virgin and that was Mary, the mother of Jesus.
When the Hebrews were taken into captivity into Babylon, they learned the Babylonian ways and the Babylonian stories and culture. So when they changed their calendar from the one God taught Enoch to observe and to teach the people, they named one of their months, the month of Tamuz. On the Babylonian calendar, the month of Tamuz was December in honor of the child of Semiramis. On the Hebrew calendar, the month of Tamuz became the 4th month, which corresponded to the 4th month on God’s calendar also being December, but was changed to the month between June and July with this month beginning in mid-June and ending in mid-July.
Jesus was not the one born on December the 25th, it was Tammuz, the son of Nimrod, the first antichrist of the world. Jesus was likely born in the month of September, which is the month of Tishrei on the Hebrew calendar. This is the month with Virgo, the virgin, as the month’s constellation, which is the image of the Revelation 12 Sign and the sign of the Rapture. The month of Tishrei also celebrates the Feast of Tabernacles which is about living in booths or tents and is the celebration of Jesus living among the people, being our tabernacle. And if that isn’t enough to make you a believer, when Mary and Joseph went looking for a place for Mary to give birth, the farmer’s livestock were sleeping outside instead of in the barns at this time. That means the weather had to be warm and not cold.
December 21st is Winter Solstice. The Germans call this a Yule Feast; this is where the Yule Log comes from. Many cultures had different ways of celebrating this, but it is clear, it is a celebration of sun worship. This is the second cultural celebration around Christmas that revolved around sun worship. Decorating a fir tree was also a part of this celebration.
The Romans celebrated the Winter Solstice on December the 25th. They worshiped the Sun god Sol Invictus.
The next celebration revolving around the time of Christmas is the Feast of Saturnalia. This was a celebration of worshiping the god Saturn between December the 17th and the 23rd. Some say it extended to the 25th. This was also a Roman tradition. They exchanged gifts and had a feast. They also practiced role revearsals where women dressed like men and men dressed like women. Also, the servants became the masters and the masters became the servants during the celebration.
The celebration of Christmas was actually invented by the Catholic church of Rome, as was the celebration of Easter. Neither of these celebrations are Biblical.
The English began celebrating the holiday in drunkenness, promiscuity, and gambling.
The Puritans of the 1600’s banned the celebration of Christmas because it wasn’t Biblical and because there was a lot of sinful revelry taking place.
The invention of Santa Clause also came by the Catholic church. It was later discovered that Santa is an anagram for ‘Satan’. Satan and Santa are both depicted as wearing red suits and Satan is also depicted with claws. Santa Clause or Satan with claws.
Santa Clause is also connected to an old Norse mythology of a demon god called Odin who lived in the far North. He was the father of Thor. Yes, the hero we see in comic books. However, comic book heroes are not heroes at all. But that is for another study and another time.
Another figure linked to Santa Clause comes from Central and Eastern Alpine folklore and his name is Krampus. He is an evil demon who comes for the bad children on Christmas Eve and he punishes them while Santa visits the good children and rewards their behavior with gifts. It is unknown how the folklore of Krampus came about, but it is believed that he represents the devil.
The entire idea of Santa Clause is only to serve as a caution to little children that they must behave or they will be on Santa’s naughty list and not get any presents. However, Santa has become a god in Christian and non-Christian cultures. He is worshiped in idolatry which causes parents to lie to their children, making them believe in a figure that doesn’t exist.
As you can see, the early celebrations of ‘Christmas’ were about worshiping false gods, decorating fir trees, giving gifts, and indulging in all manner of sin. It is still like this today. It was never about the birth of Jesus and worshiping our Creator and it is not about that now. So if you have given your life to Jesus Christ and if you are truly seeking Him and following Him daily, separate yourself from this demonic and sinful holiday. Your participation in it is not pleasing to Christ. We don’t need a holiday to worship Him and thank Him for what He has done for us. We should be worshiping Him and thanking Him EVERY DAY!
Jesus is coming for a holy and spotless Bride and He does not want to see His Bride participating in worldly celebrations and in things that are not of God. If the whole world is doing it, you, the believer and follower of Christ shouldn’t be. You MUST separate yourself from all worldly things.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.
1 John 2:15
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.
“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.
“Come out, my people, flee from Babylon. Save yourselves! Run from the LORD’s fierce anger.
And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.
“Do not learn the way of the Gentiles; Do not be upset at the signs of heaven, for the Gentiles are upset at them.
For the customs of the peoples are vain; For one cuts a tree from the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the ax. They decorate it with silver and gold; They fasten it with nails and hammers so that it will not topple.
In case you don’t know, Jeremiah was speaking against those who celebrated the Winter Solstice. They worshiped the sun, moon, and stars, centering their lives around the creation of God and they decorated a tree in honor of the celebration.
God has warned. Let this be your very last celebration of Christmas. Let it go in the ways of the gentiles.
Pray that you are counted worthy, spotless, and ready to leave this world behind. God bless each and every one of you. Shalom.
