Why do we celebrate Christmas? A pagan holiday!
“You shall not follow the practices of the land of Egypt, where you used to live, or the practices of the land of Canaan, where I AM bringing you. You must not walk in their customs,” Leviticus 18:3.
This post is not to judge or point fingers, but to inform those who may not know…
We all have celebrated Christmas and other holidays during our childhood and even through adulthood.
But does God agree with us celebrating Christmas and other pagan holidays? (Easter, Thanksgiving, Mother’s Day, Halloween…. etc..)
Just because we have done it for so long, or just because our parents and foreparents did it, does it make it right with The Most High God?
Will we obey God, or the traditions of men?
“But Peter and the apostles replied, ‘We must obey God rather than any human authority,'” Acts 5:29.
If someone had told me this years ago, I would have thought they were really crazy or just too radical…. But this is just what the devil would have you to believe!
He works through things that seem harmless or very subtle, such as decorating a tree or a house, or passing out candy to small children and dressing them in demonic masks and costumes…….
It would be a great idea if you would really research Halloween. Because if you did, you would not allow your children to participate in the hidden and subtle Satanic ritual.
We wonder why our youth are rebellious and violent. It is because we are exposing and opening the door to them for demonic spirits.
But like I said, we did not know any better and neither did our foreparents. They loved us, so they thought they were making us happy and they did the best that they could at the time; thereby we followed the same customs and traditions with our children.
So just from whom, what, or where did we learn this tradition of Christmas?
Well, our ancestors learned this practice when they reached the shores of America (Babylon/ Egypt) – Revelation 11 & 17) through the Atlantic slave trade.
In addition, careful research will show that the concept Christmas actually started with an orgy sex party through and by the Romans and Greeks. This is why God forewarned us not to engage in practices of the heathens.
To be exact, this practice was celebrated before the birth of “Christ.” The Babylonians also celebrated this festival and gave the same exact date for a pagan deity, December 25.
In all honesty, I have a news flash for you! The image that we were given as Jesus Christ and that we saw as children, young adults, and even now, that hang on the walls in our grandmother’s and mother’s homes, is not “Jesus.”
No, that guy is Cesare Borgia. And for the record, “Jesus” is a Greek/ Roman name. It is not the true name of the son of The Most High God. His true name is Yahuah/ Yahawashi…. But that’s another lesson, because we have been programmed through paganism and tradition.
Some things will be hard for us to re-learn, because if a lie is told long enough, it will be believed. And for nearly 400 years, we have been told a lot of lies and untruths..
I have said nothing that cannot be researched through your smart phones, computers, or other technology. If we are ignorant of things in this day and time, it is because we refuse to read and research for our own learning and interest.
I, myself was ignorant of these facts for many years, until God revealed the truth to me and I began to research the information for myself.
I always say if we know better, we should try with all of our efforts to do better to please The Most High God.
Because with the condition of this world, with all of the turmoil, violence, and natural disasters, we are definitely going to need His guidance and protection for us, our children, and loved ones.
Therefore, we want Him to know that we honor what pleases Him, so that we can receive His goodness, protection, mercy, and grace.
Now back to the holiday of Christmas and the Christmas Tree… It is described in Jeremiah chapter 10…….
The Christmas Tree
“Hear what the LORD says to you, people of Israel. 2 This is what the LORD says: “Do not learn the ways of the nations or be terrified by signs in the heavens, though the nations are terrified by them. 3 For the practices of the peoples are worthless; they cut a tree out of the forest, and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel. 4 They adorn it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so it will not totter. 5 Like a scarecrow in a cucumber field, their idols cannot speak; they must be carried because they cannot walk. Do not fear them; they can do no harm nor can they do any good,” Jeremiah 10:1-5.
Read Jeremiah 10 and post your comments!
“You must not follow the statutes of the nations I am driving out before you, for they did all these things, and I abhorred them,” Leviticus 20:23.
“And I said to you: ‘I AM the LORD your God. You must not worship the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell.’ but you did not obey Me,” Judges 6:10.
