WARNING: Learn from MY Mistake!!!!

Many people on here might think that I’m somehow “perfect”, that I never make mistakes in trying to live a life for Yeshua/Jesus Christ, and that I never falter. But I’m here to tell you otherwise. As per Romans 3:23, I’m an imperfect being. I DO make mistakes from time to time in my attempts to live for Yeshua/Jesus Christ.

For example: this past “Christmas”, I tried like HECK to tell my overly traditional family member that I did NOT feel like celebrating Christmas this year and why. It turned into a BIG argument and two days later, I found myself being tempted to “cave in” so as to shut up their bitching, nagging and raving about it. AND…..not having the strength to argue and leave the house, I found myself “complacently” eating Christmas Eve dinner, and then later going into the living room on Christmas Eve to sit down (with the small “blasphemous” Christmas tree in the window).

Now, one day after Christmas, the guilt, shame and TERRIBLE feeling in the pit of my stomach is just EATING ME ALIVE ON THE INSIDE! I can HARDLY stand to live with myself, folks! And I just KNOW the Lord Jesus is HIGHLY, HIGHLY disappointed in me! And believe me, that’s the most absolute GUT-WRENCHING feeling in the ENTIRE UNIVERSE!

But the POINT I wanted to make in all of this is THIS: It’s much, much, MUCH better to have friends, church members and family members upset with you for NOT celebrating Christmas than it is for JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY to be upset with you FOR celebrating the “blasphemous” holiday of Christmas, EVEN IF IT’S ONLY CHRISTMAS DINNER!

I can only hope and pray that the Lord Jesus will forgive me for my most sinful, grievous mistake this year! In fact, I even tried to “compromise” on Christmas this year, as in, if I ONLY celebrated Christmas Eve dinner with family and did NOT open my presents in front of the Christmas tree and did NOT truly wish to celebrate Christmas AT ALL in my HEART, that I somehow wasn’t sinning against Jesus Christ, even though in the depths of my heart and soul, I think I knew better.

Before Christmas Eve and ON Christmas Eve, I kept praying and praying that maybe the power would go out or that the tree would just “disintegrate” (branches, too) in front of everyone’s eyes (as an “easy way out” from having to celebrate Christmas), but no such luck. The Lord Jesus Christ was TESTING ME to see how strongly and boldly I’d stick to his Word.

I even made what “I” thought was a justifiable excuse: but the Lord Jesus KNOWS my heart and that I do NOT want to truly celebrate this godless holiday and feel SICKENED about it in the DEPTHS OF MY SOUL but feel forced to by my family! So if the Lord KNOWS my heart and KNOWS I hate Christmas with a PASSION in my heart, he will excuse me from its *consequences*, right?

But sadly, ANY excuse for “sin” is NO EXCUSE, folks and I honestly had to learn that the hard way this year! I can’t STAND the awful feeling eating away at me in the pit of my stomach knowing that I failed HIM, I failed the King of Kings and Lord of Lords by passively celebrating in this “godless” holiday that people call “Christmas”!

Now tell me: What do Christmas trees have to do with Jesus? Nothing, right? And if they’re NOT “idols” in peoples’ lives, why are they SO RELUCTANT to let them go?

And people actually claim that Christmas trees AREN’T worshiped? HA! 

Check out the following 3 items

I cried for days and and days and days BEFORE Christmas, RIGHT AFTER the “festivities” on Christmas Eve and ON Christmas “Day” and beyond. I just can’t get over the shame! Why? Because I can FEEL Jesus’s angered tears at my “cowered betrayal” of Him and his command to me to NOT celebrate Christmas this year or any year after! I CAN HARDLY STAND TO LIVE WITH MYSELF NOW, FOLKS! I feel like the world’s most terrible person now, in Jesus’s eyes! And the feeling of guilt, shame and hypocrisy is just BEYOND OVERWHELMING!

I’ve barely eaten the last two days and have spent most my time laying in bed, crying. Jesus Christ has done SO, SO VERY MUCH for me in my life. So now for me to unwittingly and cowardly turn my back on him like that, just because I didn’t have the heart to keep arguing with my mom over the holiday? ;(

The Lord Jesus has taught me a VERY valuable Earth-shattering lesson here, folks! If it comes down to two things and two things ONLY, HIM or your family? You’d better pick HIM! No matter what! Your family members didn’t create you or the universe! Your family members don’t have the power of heaven and hell and death in their very hands! Your family members didn’t talk in a burning bush, send the plagues to Egypt, or calm the ROARING SEA! Your family members don’t have the power of space and time in their very hand!

True, they will laugh, they will mock, they will scoff and they WILL get mad/indifferent when you claim you no longer want to celebrate Christmas (TRUST ME ON THIS) but you can NOT let that get to you, folks! You MUST stand strong! You MUST stand firm! ESPECIALLY in 2016, when things are going to get much, much, MUCH worse than they EVER WERE in 2015, BELIEVE ME ON THIS, FOLKS! Do NOT make the same mistake of “compromise” in the upcoming year of 2016 that I unwittingly made this year in 2015! And IF you do, I pray the Lord Jesus Christ will have mercy upon your SOUL! Just as I pray he has mercy upon MY soul!

Alot of pastors and Christians do NOT like to talk about this subject but it MUST be brought to light! Just like a parent can lose patience with his/her child, Jesus can also LOSE HIS PATIENCE with US, if we’re not careful! And once we’re beyond the point of no return, once HIS wrath in OUR lives reaches its “breaking point”, there’s NO turning back! THAT is when he will predetermine that we are NOT FIT FOR THE MILLENNIAL/ETERNAL KINGDOM OF GOD [NEW JERUSALEM].

[Please remember that in the time of Noah, there was a period of SPIRITUAL PROBATION. And as soon as the “breaking point” of that “spiritual probation” CLOSED, there was NO GOING BACK! The bible says that after the door of Noah’s ark was SEALED shut, SEVEN DAYS went by BEFORE the “fountains of heaven” were opened up and it began to rain for 40 days and 40 nights!

And I’m sure that AS all the people that thought that Noah was a “silly old man” were standing there and mocking Noah and his “ark”, they had NO IDEA of the calamity that was soon to come! So it is with people who still STUBBORNLY insist on celebrating “Pagan Christian” holidays in their hearts! They think the “bible followers” are CRAZY and REFUSE to take heed!

Therefore, THEIR point of “spiritual probation” is CLOSING! Yes, CLOSING, folks! Once they get to that theoretical “spiritual point” in their lives where they are metaphorically standing outside the “Ark of God”, laughing, mocking and scoffing, it will be TOO LATE FOR THEM, AS THERE’S NO GOING BACK, AT THAT POINT IN TIME! I’m sure there were altleast a FEW people who were banging on the “Ark” at that time, begging to be let in but after God sealed it shut, it could NOT be opened by Noah and his family! And my best spiritual guess is that Noah and his family could NOT even pry the Ark’s door open for someone at that point in time, EVEN if they had wanted to!]

But the main point I want to make here (EVEN FOR MYSELF, EVEN) is that Christmas is NOT okay to “compromise” on. Easter is NOT okay to “compromise” on. NO “Paganized Christian” holiday is okay to compromise on, TRUST ME ON THIS, FOLKS! That is what the Lord Jesus Christ has taught me in HIS RIGHTEOUS ANGER!

ALL of “Christian holidays” are based on ancient Pagan “sex festivals”. Does that SHOCK YOU? It shouldn’t. Considering the world just LOVES these “holidays”.

And yet, the world (as a whole) has never even HEARD of the holidays of Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost, Firstfruits, etc. And why is that, do you think? Answer: Because those are the ONLY holidays that truly DO celebrate Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ, ONLY! These holidays don’t share Jesus with ANY other object or “entity” (such as easter bunny, santa claus, costumes, noise makers, etc.) And the bible says that “the world” (as a whole) does NOT want ANYTHING to do with the TRUE gospel of Jesus Christ and OH HOW TRUE THAT IS IN TODAY’S HEATHEN, FALLEN, GODLESS WORLD!!!!!!!!! A world where sin ABOUNDS!

But in fact, Jesus Christ DID describe his “flock” as a L I T T L E FLOCK. Translation? VERY FEW PEOPLE will make it through the gates of the heavenly city of New Jerusalem someday. VERY FEW. Why? Lets turn to the bible for the answer:

“Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” – [Luke 12:32]

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it – [Matthew 7: 13-14]

Translation? Many, many, MANY billions of people will go to “the lake of fire” [Revelation 20:15 in the New Testament] and only a VERY FEW SELECT FEW will to to “God’s Paradise” of the new heavenly city called “New Jerusalem” [described in Revelation 21-22]. 

Ever since the death of Jesus Christ and the original apostles, it came to be in the world (as a whole) that the TRUE “Jewish gospel” of Jesus Christ was “not popular”. Why? Because it demanded people to DENY themselves “Earthly pleasures” and to live “humble lives”.

Therefore, this “pick-up-your-cross-and-follow-me-gospel” was soon replaced by a Babylonian/Pagan “pleasures GALORE” gospel that the world (as a whole) EMBRACED! Why? Because “the world” (as a whole) HATES the biblical Jesus Christ and doesn’t want anything to do with him!

Do you REALLY think that if December 25th was Jesus’s TRUE birthday that the Earth would be celebrating it? I THINK NOT! For if December 25th was the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ’s birthday, the world (as a whole) would want NOTHING to do with that date, TRUST ME ON THIS, FOLKS!

Also: Imagine if people replaced your REAL birthday with Hitler’s birthday! And instead of giving creed and honor to YOU, people instead sung songs of praise to HITLER! And proudly displayed Nazi regalia all throughout their home! How would YOU feel? [Those that give credence to Hitler probably wouldn’t care too much but that’s besides the point!]

The point I’m trying to make is that Jesus Christ HATES IT when somebody takes a PAGAN HOLIDAY, puts HIS holy name on it, and then ADVOCATES bowing down to IDOLS (adorned Christmas trees) and SINGING SONGS TO IDOLS:

He sees you when you’re sleeping, he knows when you’re awake………..”

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas Tree……..”

EVEN the “Christmas songs” ABOUT Jesus Christ are ALL BLASPHEMOUS, in and of THEMSELVES……Need more proof? Visit the following website that breaks down the lyrics bit by bit and little by little: http://www.layittoheart.com/christmas.html

The very LAST point I want to make is THIS: The “Jesus Christ” that’s worshiped on December 25th every year is NOT the Jesus Christ of the bible! Repeat: IS NOT the Jesus Christ of the bible! But instead is a FALSE, PAGAN, SATANIC type of JESUS CHRIST that the Roman Catholic Church worships as Helios, the SUN GOD and that apparently advocates lying to little children about Santa Claus! Now, tell me, would the real, true BIBLICAL Jesus Christ ever advocate lying to children? Didn’t think so! 

And Hint: Those aren’t really “halos” around Catholic figures’ heads, as they’re actually supposed to represent SUNS! Hence, Sun-Day, venerable worship day of the SUN, NOT **THE SON***! WAKE UP, FOLKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In 325A.D. at the Council of Nicea, with the help of Catholic bishops, Constantine took the Jewish religion, blended it with Pagan elements, and then called it “Christianity”.

In other words, Constantine turned the religion of God’s TRUE people INTO A LIE! Not to mention the Catholic Church INVENTED “Christ-Mass/Christmas” and “Ishtar/Easter” etc., as a way to CIRCUMVENT the TRUE holidays of Christ (Passover, Pentecost, Firstfruits, Trumpets, Tabernacles, etc.)

Notice how there’s only FIVE holidays in the “Christian calendar”, compared with the Lord Jesus’s SEVEN biblical holidays in the BIBLE’S CALENDAR?  

  • Christmas (based off of the Pagan Festival Saturnalia, which encouraged drunken orgies and lawlessness)

  • Easter (based off of the Pagan Festival of Ishtar, goddess of sex/fertility, whose symbols were “painted eggs” and “the rabbit”)

  • Valentine’s Day (based off the Pagan “Lustfest” called Lupercalia)

  • New Year’s (Like Christmas, based off the Pagan Festival(s) Saturnalia and Yule, which encouraged drunken orgies, etc.)

  • Halloween (based off of Samhain, which is/was more or less considered *institutionalized orgies and/or necrophilia*)

VS……….

7 REQUIRED Festivals of the Lord:

  • Passover

  • Feast Of Unleavened Bread

  • Feast Of Firstfruits

  • Pentecost

  • Feast Of Trumpets

  • Day Of Atonement

  • Feast Of Tabernacles

2 Minor (Optional?) Festivals:

  • Purim

  • Hannukah

Everything from the star on top of the tree (the “pentagram”) to Santa Claus to reindeer……there’s absolutely NOTHING biblical about December 25th! Not a SINGLE THING! You and I both have been warned! And may NONE of us (even ME, of all people) complacently, willingly or stubbornly insist on participating in this holiday EVER, EVER, EVER AGAIN, so long as we all shall live! Amen. 

But in closing, there’s ONE last very point I wanted to make: that of Revelation. In the book of Revelation, Revelation chapter 11 is talking about the two prophets of God whom will prophecy (if literal days) 1,260 days. But at the end of those days, the Beast who ascends out of the pit will overcome them and kill them. And all the godless people on the Earth will be SO HAPPY when these two prophets are killed, that they will let their bodies lay in the street of what is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt.

Revelation 11:10 states: “And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth”. Does this NOT sound like a “Christmases of ALL Christmases” to YOU?

Not to mention the movie trailer for the movie called “The Big Short” (which hints at a future failing of the U.S. economy – pretty scary stuff, folks) and the upcoming TV series called “Lucifer”, which tries to shed Satan in a GOOD LIGHT! Folks, 2016 is going to get UGLY! VERY, VERY, **VERY** SPIRITUALLY UGLY! In fact, just LOOK at these two previews! 😦 [Lucifer is NOT God’s Son, by the way! JESUS IS!] 

And it’s ONLY gonna get worse, folks!!!!! That’s why it’s SO important for you to get right with Yeshua/Jesus Christ! Repent of any sins that need repenting of! Get your lives and your finances in order! Get rid of your complacency and your fears (and believe me, that goes just as much for ME as anyone!) Read your King James Bible (even on the days and times when you don’t feel like it). Meditate on it, fixate on it, memorize, apply it to your life!

I say this not to scare you but to warn you. 2016 is going to be B A D……..Very, very B A D!!!!!!!!! SO BE PREPARED!!!!!!!!! Be on your best spiritual guard! Satan will send his hoards and hoards of demonic operatives (both demonic and human) to try to destroy any vestige of the Lord’s people that he can find! But don’t let him win, folks! Stay strong! Stay VIGILANT for the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ and his Word! Do NOT bow down to pressure from the ungodly LEFT! And no matter HOW hard things get or how hard your life is, DON’T GIVE UP, FOLKS! Have a faith that’s SO STRONG that you’d be willing to die for it, if needed! And if you DON’T have that type of faith in Jesus, then PRAY to have that type of faith in Jesus!

Don’t care if people laugh and mock at you! Because very soon, everything on this Earth will pass away and a new heaven and a new Earth will be constructed by God the heavenly father! And soon, we will ALL be before the mighty Judgement Seat of Christ! And we will be judged for every idle word! Every thought, deed and action ever done in this Earthly life! And Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ ALONE will determine who’s names get recorded in his book of Life and who’s names are NOT recorded in the book of Life (his personal record book of faithful followers). Also: Do NOT take the Mark of the Beast when it comes time to buy and sell. It’s better to starve for the Lord Jesus Christ than to live FOR the Devil, so remember that, folks! May the BIBLICAL Lord Jesus Christ be with us ALL! Amen. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The “REAL WAR” on Christ: it’s NOT Christmas!!!!!

After doing some MAJOR research and coming to know what the TRUE ORIGINS of “Christmas” are, I am just ASTOUNDED at the number of misguided Christians out there who still think:

A). there’s a “war on Christmas”

B). that the “war on Christmas” IS a WAR ON CHRIST!

C). that “Christ” needs to be put back INTO the word “Christmas”!

(And had I not done my proper research into the matter, I myself would sadly still BE one of those poor, misguided folks!)

The truth is, “Christmas” is a purely CATHOLIC/PAGAN INSTITUTION. The word “Christmas” comes from the words “Christ MASS”. And quite incidentally, the Roman Catholic Church created *modern-day Christianity* OUT of PAGANISM! The Christmas festival is actually based off of the Pagan Festival called “Saturnalia”. And it was during the festival of “Saturnalia” that grostesque things were done to Biblical-roots Christians

https://thetruthandlight.wordpress.com/2008/12/25/saturnalia-the-real-roots-of-christmas/

==============================================

According to the following page:

http://www.simpletoremember.com/vitals/Christmas_TheRealStory.htm

How Did Christmas Come to Be Celebrated on December 25?

  1. Roman pagans first introduced the holiday of Saturnalia, a week long period of lawlessness celebrated between December 17-25.  During this period, Roman courts were closed, and Roman law dictated that no one could be punished for damaging property or injuring people during the weeklong celebration.  The festival began when Roman authorities chose “an enemy of the Roman people” to represent the “Lord of Misrule.”  Each Roman community selected a victim whom they forced to indulge in food and other physical pleasures throughout the week.  At the festival’s conclusion, December 25th, Roman authorities believed they were destroying the forces of darkness by brutally murdering this innocent man or woman.
  2. The ancient Greek writer poet and historian Lucian (in his dialogue entitled Saturnalia) describes the festival’s observance in his time.  In addition to human sacrifice, he mentions these customs: widespread intoxication; going from house to house while singing naked; rape and other sexual license; and consuming human-shaped biscuits (still produced in some English and most German bakeries during the Christmas season).
  3. In the 4th century CE, Christianity imported the Saturnalia festival hoping to take the pagan masses in with it.  Christian leaders succeeded in converting to Christianity large numbers of pagans by promising them that they could continue to celebrate the Saturnalia as Christians.[2]
  4. The problem was that there was nothing intrinsically Christian about Saturnalia. To remedy this, these Christian leaders named Saturnalia’s concluding day, December 25th, to be Jesus’ birthday.
  5. Christians had little success, however, refining the practices of Saturnalia.  As Stephen Nissenbaum, professor history at the University of Massachussetts, Amherst, writes, “In return for ensuring massive observance of the anniversary of the Savior’s birth by assigning it to this resonant date, the Church for its part tacitly agreed to allow the holiday to be celebrated more or less the way it had always been.”  The earliest Christmas holidays were celebrated by drinking, sexual indulgence, singing naked in the streets (a precursor of modern caroling), etc.
  6. The Reverend Increase Mather of Boston observed in 1687 that “the early Christians who  first observed the Nativity on December 25 did not do so thinking that Christ was born in that Month, but because the Heathens’ Saturnalia was at that time kept in Rome, and they were willing to have those Pagan Holidays metamorphosed into Christian ones.”[3] Because of its known pagan origin, Christmas was banned by the Puritans and its observance was illegal in Massachusetts between 1659 and 1681.[4]  However, Christmas was and still is celebrated by most Christians.
  7. Some of the most depraved customs of the Saturnalia carnival were intentionally revived by the Catholic Church in 1466 when Pope Paul II, for the amusement of his Roman citizens, forced Jews to race naked through the streets of the city.  An eyewitness account reports, “Before they were to run, the Jews were richly fed, so as to make the race more difficult for them and at the same time more amusing for spectators.  They ran… amid Rome’s taunting shrieks and peals of laughter, while the Holy Father stood upon a richly ornamented balcony and laughed heartily.”[5]
  8. As part of the Saturnalia carnival throughout the 18th and 19th centuries CE, rabbis of the ghetto in Rome were forced to wear clownish outfits and march through the city streets to the jeers of the crowd, pelted by a variety of projectiles. When the Jewish community of Rome sent a petition in 1836 to Pope Gregory XVI begging him to stop the annual Saturnalia abuse of the Jewish community, he responded, “It is not opportune to make any innovation.”[6] On December 25, 1881, Christian leaders whipped the Polish masses into Antisemitic frenzies that led to riots across the country.  In Warsaw 12 Jews were brutally murdered, huge numbers maimed, and many Jewish women were raped.  Two million rubles worth of property was destroyed.

III.     The Origins of Christmas Customs

  1. The Origin of Christmas Tree
    Just as early Christians recruited Roman pagans by associating Christmas with the Saturnalia, so too worshippers of the Asheira cult and its offshoots were recruited by the Church sanctioning “Christmas Trees”.[7] Pagans had long worshipped trees in the forest, or brought them into their homes and decorated them, and this observance was adopted and painted with a Christian veneer by the Church.
  2. The Origin of Mistletoe
    Norse mythology recounts how the god Balder was killed using a mistletoe arrow by his rival god Hoder while fighting for the female Nanna.  Druid rituals use mistletoe to poison their human sacrificial victim.[8] The Christian custom of “kissing under the mistletoe” is a later synthesis of the sexual license of Saturnalia with the Druidic sacrificial cult.[9]
  3. The Origin of Christmas Presents
    In pre-Christian Rome, the emperors compelled their most despised citizens to bring offerings and gifts during the Saturnalia (in December) and Kalends (in January).  Later, this ritual expanded to include gift-giving among the general populace.  The Catholic Church gave this custom a Christian flavor by re-rooting it in the supposed gift-giving of Saint Nicholas (see below).[10]
  4. The Origin of Santa Claus
  5. Nicholas was born in Parara, Turkey in 270 CE and later became Bishop of Myra.  He died in 345 CE on December 6th.  He was only named a saint in the 19th century.
  6. Nicholas was among the most senior bishops who convened the Council of Nicaea in 325 CE and created the New Testament.  The text they produced portrayed Jews as “the children of the devil”[11] who sentenced Jesus to death.
  7. In 1087, a group of sailors who idolized Nicholas moved his bones from Turkey to a sanctuary in Bari, Italy.  There Nicholas supplanted a female boon-giving deity called The Grandmother, or Pasqua Epiphania, who used to fill the children’s stockings with her gifts.  The Grandmother was ousted from her shrine at Bari, which became the center of the Nicholas cult.  Members of this group gave each other gifts during a pageant they conducted annually on the anniversary of Nicholas’ death, December 6.
  8. The Nicholas cult spread north until it was adopted by German and Celtic pagans.  These groups worshipped a pantheon led by Woden –their chief god and the father of Thor, Balder, and Tiw.  Woden had a long, white beard and rode a horse through the heavens one evening each Autumn.  When Nicholas merged with Woden, he shed his Mediterranean appearance, grew a beard, mounted a flying horse, rescheduled his flight for December, and donned heavy winter clothing.
  9. In a bid for pagan adherents in Northern Europe, the Catholic Church adopted the Nicholas cult and taught that he did (and they should) distribute gifts on December 25th instead of December 6th.
  10. In 1809, the novelist Washington Irving (most famous his The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle) wrote a satire of Dutch culture entitled Knickerbocker History.  The satire refers several times to the white bearded, flying-horse riding Saint Nicholas using his Dutch name, Santa Claus.
  11. Dr. Clement Moore, a professor at Union Seminary, read Knickerbocker History, and in 1822 he published a poem based on the character Santa Claus: “Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.  The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in the hope that Saint Nicholas soon would be there…”  Moore innovated by portraying a Santa with eight reindeer who descended through chimneys.
  12. The Bavarian illustrator Thomas Nast almost completed the modern picture of Santa Claus.  From 1862 through 1886, based on Moore’s poem, Nast drew more than 2,200 cartoon images of Santa for Harper’s Weekly.  Before Nast, Saint Nicholas had been pictured as everything from a stern looking bishop to a gnome-like figure in a frock.  Nast also gave Santa a home at the North Pole, his workshop filled with elves, and his list of the good and bad children of the world.  All Santa was missing was his red outfit.
  13. In 1931, the Coca Cola Corporation contracted the Swedish commercial artist Haddon Sundblom to create a coke-drinking Santa.  Sundblom modeled his Santa on his friend Lou Prentice, chosen for his cheerful, chubby face.  The corporation insisted that Santa’s fur-trimmed suit be bright, Coca Cola red.  And Santa was born – a blend of Christian crusader, pagan god, and commercial idol.

 

  1. The Christmas Challenge
  • Christmas has always been a holiday celebrated carelessly.  For millennia, pagans, Christians, and even Jews have been swept away in the season’s festivities, and very few people ever pause to consider the celebration’s intrinsic meaning, history, or origins.
  • Christmas celebrates the birth of the Christian god who came to rescue mankind from the “curse of the Torah.”  It is a 24-hour declaration that Judaism is no longer valid.
  • Christmas is a lie.  There is no Christian church with a tradition that Jesus was really born on December 25th.
  • December 25 is a day on which “BIBLICAL CHRISTIANS” have been shamed, tortured, and murdered.
  • Many of the most popular Christmas customs – including Christmas trees, mistletoe, Christmas presents, and Santa Claus – are modern incarnations of the most depraved pagan rituals ever practiced on earth.

Many who are excitedly preparing for their Christmas celebrations would prefer not knowing about the holiday’s real significance.  If they do know the history, they often object that their celebration has nothing to do with the holiday’s monstrous history and meaning.  “We are just having fun.”

Imagine that between 1933-45, the Nazi regime celebrated Adolf Hitler’s birthday – April 20 – as a holiday.  Imagine that they named the day, “Hitlerday,” and observed the day with feasting, drunkenness, gift-giving, and various pagan practices.  Imagine that on that day, biblical-roots Christians were historically subject to perverse tortures and abuse, and that this continued for centuries.

Now, imagine that your great-great-great-grandchildren were about to celebrate Hitlerday.  April 20th arrived. They had long forgotten about Auschwitz and Bergen Belsen.  They had never heard of gas chambers or death marches.  They had purchased champagne and caviar, and were about to begin the party, when someone reminded them of the day’s real history and their ancestors’ agony.  Imagine that they initially objected, “We aren’t celebrating the Holocaust; we’re just having a little Hitlerday party.”  If you could travel forward in time and meet them; if you could say a few words to them, what would you advise them to do on Hitlerday?

On December 25, 1941, Julius Streicher, one of the most vicious of Hitler’s assistants, celebrated Christmas by penning the following editorial in his rabidly Antisemitic newspaper, Der Stuermer:

If one really wants to put an end to the continued prospering of this curse from heaven that is the Jewish blood, there is only one way to do it: to eradicate this people, this Satan’s son, root and branch.

It was an appropriate thought for the day.  This Christmas, how will we celebrate?

===================================================

Truth be told, the REAL WAR on Jesus Christ/Christ began around 325A.D. at the Council of Nicea. That is when the TRUE, BIBLICALLY-MANDATED 7TH DAY SABBATH, was CHANGED from Saturday to SUN-DAY, venerable worship day of the SUN!

And then, at the 365A.D. Council of Laodicea, things ONLY got worse! That is when it was FORBIDDEN to rest on the TRUE Sabbath (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown) and when “Christians” and “Jews” were FORCED BY LAW to WORK on the Sabbath and REST on Sun-Day, venerable worship day of the Sun (practices CLEARLY forbidden by the bible!)

But no, it doesn’t even stop THERE! It gets EVEN worse! It was also FORBIDDEN for Christians and Jews living in the Roman Empire at that time to eat UNLEAVENED BREAD/fast/pray (a biblical command) and to celebrate the TRUE “Holy Days” of the Lord, including the following:

  • Passover

  • Feast of Unleavened Bread

  • Feast of Firstfruits

  • Pentecost

  • Feast of Tabernacles

  • Day of Atonement

  • Feast of Trumpets

So quite honestly, the time between 325A.D. and 365A.D. is when the TRUE WAR on “Christ” (atleast in the modern day time) began! So don’t be fooled! The Roman Catholic Church is one of THE MOST evilest organizations in history! It pretty much turned all Christianity into a LIE! It took the Jewish religion and turned it INTO *ANCIENT BABYLONIAN SUN WORSHIP, REPACKAGED*! Don’t believe me? DO THE RESEARCH AND SEE FOR YOURSELVES BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!!!!!!!!!!!
