In a nutshell! The reason I don’t celebrate Christ-mass.

(Is because I believe what Christ tells us in His Word; read it below. 12/7/2015)

God sent His Son Jesus Christ to earth to reveal Himself (God the Father) to mankind, to preach the “Good News” and then at the appropriate time have to die an excruciatingly painful death of crucifixion. Not for anything He did wrong, but to pay the price required for all of sinning mankind. That is me and you my brothers and sisters. To go through the hate and disgust that His own people felt for him, and yet to willingly die for all of us. He came to earth to teach His people the truth; again that is me and you my brothers and sisters. We (His own people) didn’t believe Him then and still don’t. We repaid Him for telling us the truth by killing Him in the most hateful, painful and disgusting way possible. But that is not quite enough yet, we His own people now identifying ourselves as Christians, as followers of Jesus Christ have need to devise other ways under the sway and leadership of Satan, to use His name in vain and to profane it in the most nasty, anti-god, obscene and idiotic way we can come up with.

Presto-Change-O

I know says Christianity under the influence of Satan, we’ll hook His name to the worst that paganism and idolatry has to offer. We’ll hook His name to a pagan festival held on the 25th of December called Saturnalia where they celebrated lawlessness, lewdness, rape, murder and debauchery of every nature. Then capped it off by burning their own little innocent children alive in the outstretched arms of their iron god heated up to red hot that represented their god Saturn, while the priests beat loudly on drums to drown out the shrieks, cries, anguish and pain suffered by their dying little kids. Now along comes Christianity or the more properly identified Babylon of confusion; in lock step with the wiles of satanic influence and hooks the name of Christ to this pagan celebration, now calling it Christ-mass under the Catholic church’s influence. Here it is now December of 2015…. Soon the entire Christian world; passing themselves off as followers of Jesus Christ will be celebrating Saturnalia with gusto, in about the same basic way as our fathers did on the 25th of December in times past. About the only difference being, they now will be calling it Christ-mass or Christmas.

Some with a holier than thou nature may with a stiff neck take issue and objection as they would inform me; they don’t burn their little children alive in the fires to satisfy the sun god Saturn. They don’t do any of the things I have described above. They don’t drink, party down, overindulge in the spirits flowing freely during their corporate Christmas bashes. They don’t farm their little kids out for others to look after while they get knee deep in the party atmosphere where wife swapping and all sorts of perverse things still happen all around the world as Fathers and Mothers cut loose in revelry of every perverse nature under the sun celebrating the Christmas season. Then coming home all hung over and blurry eyed at sunrise on Christ-mass day. (Not that I believe them all) Instead’ they claim to be doing only the upright and wonderful things of God. 

They have taken their innocent little child down to the local mall and between screams of terror sit him/her on the lap of a big fat man in a red suit. A good chance of him being a pedophile that once more this year has dusted off his red suit and come to town to get his jollies by holding and fondling your little bundle of joy; and actually getting paid to do it. The loving and nurturing Christian parents that they are, they already from birth on have explained to their little toddlers how he (Santa) sees them while they are sleeping and knows when they’re awake. Giving him the attributes of God as they transfer what should be an allegiance and love for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; instead onto a big fat man in a red suit that gives them all sorts of plastic toys and junk to litter living rooms around the world before they are most all thrown in the trash heap a few weeks later.  Sitting around the pagan Christ-mass tree on Christmas morning with a benign holier than thou look upon their faces; as they remind one another of what wonderful Christian parents they have become. Once more this year they have successfully lied thru their teeth to their own precious little children and pulled the wool over their little innocent eyes.  Oh how God must be pleased with them; I speak as a fool!

Mark 7:7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. 9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition. Christmas and Easter my brothers and sisters are nothing more or less than satanic influenced Christian inventions; we are following after custom, ritual and tradition; most assuredly not anything being God sanctioned or ordained. Let’s not set ourselves up to eventually be hearing these words.  Matthew7  “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

I would like to draw our attention to the above Word of God to those teaching for doctrines the commandments of men; those that He said were full well rejecting the commandments of God that they might keep their own traditions. (The tradition of Christmas and Easter for example ) Going on then and telling us that not everyone who says to me, Lord, Lord' shall enter the kingdom of God, but he that does the will of my Father in heaven. Telling us that many will tell of all the good they have done. But lets ask ourselves the question; did it impress God that we did all of those wonderful things. We prophesied in His name, cast out demons in His name, may have attended the sick and given to the poor. We really may have did many wonderful things. But did it please God? Was He impressed with all of that good being done? 

What is noticeably missing from these folks, is nothing at all is being mentioned about what Christ has done for them. No, He was not at all impressed or pleased with all their good works; otherwise He would not have told us; I never knew you; depart from me you that practice lawlessness!'No amount of good works has the power nor the authority to void out one little sin. It took the sin free sacrificed life of Jesus Christ to qualify to be the Savior of all of mankind, without even one exception. Unlike when man talks and it can be misinterpreted or misunderstood, God is in the habit of always telling the truth; He cannot lie. ( Titus 1:2 ) Notice here an interesting word used by God. He clearly said He NEVER knew us that practice lawlessness. Lawlessness my brothers and sisters is sin; sin is the transgression of the law. Following after the custom, ritual and traditions of man as opposed to the commandment of God is a sin. To try and mix paganism with the word, the will and the way of God is a most egregious sin that at some point will have to be repented of before one can belong to the church that Jesus Christ is building here on earth, that the gates of hell (Hades or grave) shall not prevail against. They will also be barred from the kingdom of God, until their repentance. He who has ears to hear with; let him hear. It is time that we turn our back on paganism in any form and turn our faces to the temple of God.  

In conclusion

Let me guess, you don’t want to know the truth of God, do you? We never have wanted to know or to believe the truth of God. But we have just read it whether we elect to believe it or not. What I have written here is not some closely held secret locked away into a bottomless pit; guarded by special military forces armed with the latest weaponry known to mankind. Nor the “French Foreign Legion”, not even by a tribe of African pygmies with poison blow dart guns hiding behind the trees to ambush us.  This is true information that anyone can find by looking into any credible encyclopedia or Google it online. I challenge you to seek out “The Origin of Christmas”  Find out for yourselves how you are using the name of God in vain and profaning it at the same time by honoring and celebrating the pagan sun god festival of Saturnalia; after the name of Christ has been attached to it. 

I do realize that this is a lot to ask of those raised up to believe a lie; following after custom, ritual and tradition is a hard habit to break. Most have just become too comfortable to bother caring about what God would have us do.  Instead we anxiously await the chance to celebrate, suck up accept and to believe the half-truths and outright lies brought to us by the ministers of Satan; such as Christ-mas and Easter; while digging our heels in deep against believing the truth of Jesus Christ. 

Christ-ianity is in complete denial of the truth of God; we simply refuse to believe Him. It doesn’t much matter if you believe me just because I tell you it’s the truth; but will you believe the Word of God? Read below what Christ is telling His own people calling ourselves Christian; this is not someone else that is in denial of His Word my brothers and sisters, it is you and me He is talking to here. The Christmas and Easter I talk about here is but the tip of the iceberg. There isn't much truth in anything that Christianity; the Babylon of confusion teaches in their congregations around the world Christ tells us that truth but we refuse to believe Him.

(John 3:18 and on) He that believeth on him is not condemned: (judged) but he that believeth not is condemned (judged) already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

(1 John 5: 10) He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness within himself: He that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.

(John 8: 45) And because I tell you (so called Christians ) the truth, ye believe me not.

(John 16: 9) (NLT) The world’s  ( Christian worlds ) sin is unbelief in me.

(Hebrews 4:2) We (so called Christians ) have heard the same Good News that your ancestors heard. But the message didn't help those who heard it in the past because they didn't believe.

(John 7:2-5) But when the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles was near, Jesus’ brothers said to him, ‘You ought to leave here and go to Judea, so that your disciples may see the miracles you do. No one who wants to become a public figure acts in secret. Since you are doing these things, show yourself to the world.’ For even his own brothers did not believe in him.”

(John 8:23-24) "You are from below; I am from above. You are of this ( so called Christian )  world; I am not of this world. I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am the one I claim to be, you will indeed die in your sins."

(John 5:24) Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.

(John 5:38) And ye ( so called Christians )  have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent him ye believe not.

First we killed Him ( His own people ) for telling us the truth. Now we continue to use His name in vain and profane it by attaching it to the worst that paganism and idolatry have to offer, calling it Christmas or Easter to name a couple. Going a step further now we add even more improper use of His name, using it in vain again and profaning it even more by being in denial of His truth and yet identifying ourselves as Christ-ians. Yet in spite of this He loves us all unconditionally and He is going to save us all, that is what He came to tell us. It is called the gospel or “The Good News” of “The Kingdom of God”.

Now turn with me to the scripture, the Word of God that tells us or commands us to celebrate Christmas and keep it and /or Easter as a holy day unto Himself. We have a problem Huston! There in fact and in truth is no such thing in all of the Word of God; it is an invention of Christianity known as well as the Babylon of confusion.  Made to appear upright, holy, good and to be spiritually honoring Jesus Christ. It is none of these things; it is instead paganism and idolatry 101. Having killed Him on His first trip to earth; not believing His truth as He reveals it to us yet today; how will He be received by Christians when He returns to have His angels collect his elect from the four corners of the heavens and the earth? As Dr. Phil would say, “Past behavior is the best indicator of future behavior”. Read a little here on how God feels about our Christmas observance and our Easter sunrise services.

(Ezekiel8:16) Then He brought me into the inner court of the LORD'S house. And behold, at the entrance to the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men with their backs to the temple of the LORD and their faces toward the east; and they were prostrating themselves eastward toward the sun. (Worshiping the sun)Then read a little about our cherished pagan originated Christmas tree and the celebrations there of. 

(Jeremiah10:2-4)  2Thus says the LORD, "Do not learn the way of the nations, And do not be terrified by the signs of the heavens Although the nations are terrified by them; 3For the customs of the peoples are delusion; Because it is wood cut from the forest, The work of the hands of a craftsman with a cutting tool. 4"They decorate it with silver and with gold; They fasten it with nails and with hammers So that it will not totter.…(Likened to a scarecrow in a cucumber patch)Think of this on your way to pick out your cherished pagan family tree.

Thessalonians 2:11-12 King James Version (KJV) 11 And for this cause God shall send them (us) strong delusion, that they (we) should believe a lie: 12 that they (we) all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. Christianity should have long ago done away with paganism and idolatry. But instead they have adopted it. Those passing themselves off as followers of Jesus Christ; will be doing the same thing this year as those before them have been in the habit of doing now for centuries. They will trot out their weather beaten,leached out, broken down, cracked with age, plastic doll; in representation of the pitiful little baby Jesus and place it out in their yards between the dog coup and the garbage cans. Light it all up fancy so other Christian imitators can oooh and ahhh as they drive by. Do we really think this pleases God? Exodus 20:44 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, (: an object (such as a statue or plastic baby) that is worshiped as a god or in place of a god) or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.  Are we make believe Christians listening to these words?                                                                             News flash for the people of God! 

There is no Little Baby Jesus”; He was born, He grew up without ever sinning once. He did the work that His Father God required of Him. He died for your sins and my sins because He had qualified Himself for that purpose; when He finished the work of saving all of mankind and in fact all of creation, His spirit returned to God who had given it to Him. John 19:28  after this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!”29  Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth. 30 So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit. 

Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior; He is omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent and immutable; He changes not. He has life immortal as God has life; that is your destiny and that is my destiny thanks to the prearranged purpose and plan of our Almighty Father God and His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, whose promise of Titus 1:2 has now been fulfilled. In the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time. It is not something that might happen someday to us good people. It is a done deal; we have all been forgiven. 

We don't have to jump through any Babylon of confusion hoops to arrive there. The Christian hell is another hoax to keep folks praying and paying for salvation that has already been given us by our Lord and Savior and brother Jesus Christ. I hope some of you readers will be able to break the shackles of bondage and come out of the Babylon of confusion as God directs us all to do in Revelation 18:4. Come out of her my people. For a much more in detail examination about the satanic and pagan connection that brought our present day sun worship festival into the so called Christian celebration that takes place all around the world today now being called Christmas: please go to the other piece I have written on this site identified as;  "Christianity didn't do away with paganism;they adopted it". Then may God be your guide.
