“Traditions Of Men”

Please think about this sincerely, and know that this is not a tradition of God! A poem I found …
JESUS WOULDN’T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH CHRISTMAS DAY

By Gary C. Michael
DEC. 25, 2001

WHAT’S THE REAL REASON
FOR THE CHRISTMAS SEASON?
WHY DO PEOPLE PUT UP AN EVERGREEN TREE?
DOES THIS MAKE JESUS EASIER TO SEE?

WHY THE NAME SANTA AND WHY HO, HO, HO?
THE ANSWER CONTAIN WHAT YOU REALLY SHOULD KNOW

IS CHRIST THE CENTER OF THIS SEASON’S BASH,
OR IS IT REALLY ABOUT HARD COLD CASH?
WHO DICTATES WHAT IS SEEN HEARD AND THOUGHT?
WHO DETERMINES WHAT IS BEING BOUGHT?

MERCHANTS DETERMINE WHAT IS FOR SALE
THE AIRWAYS ARE FLOODED WITH FAIRY TALES
DESIGNED TO MAKE A PRODUCT LOOK COOL
WHICH IS OFTEN ANOTHER ONE OF SATAN’S TOOLS

WHY IS EVERGREEN THE TREE OF CHOICE?
SOMEBODY’S BEEN LISTENING TO A PAGAN’S VOICE

THEY THOUGHT THAT ONLY A GOD COULD STAY GREEN YEAR ROUND
AND THROUGH DEVICE POWER NOT TURN BROWN

TAKE THE CENTER OF SANTA AND SHIFT TO THE RIGHT
TWO LETTER SPACES OUGHT TO SHOW YOU SOME LIGHT
COULD THIS BE A WAY TO BRING GLORY TO A NAME?
THAT WAS KICKED OUT OF HEAVEN AND WORTHY OF BLAME?

WHY DO YOU SUPPOSE SANTA SAYS HO, HO, HO?
ZECHARIAH TWO, SIX AND SEVEN IS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
GOD IS SAYING FLEE WITH PAIN IN HIS VOICE
AWAY FROM CORRUPTION AND THOSE WHO SIN BY CHOICE
SANTA IS MOCKING GOD!

LET’S COMPARE SANTA TO JESUS CHRIST
AND YOU DETERMINE IF SANTA IS NAUGHTY OR NICE

WHICH ONE CALLS THE CHILDREN UNTO HIM?
DIDN’T JESUS SAY BRING THEM TO HIM?
WHICH ONE KNOWS IF WE’VE BEEN GOOD OR BAD?
I SEE A COUNTERFEIT. BOY! THAT’S SAD

IT TAKES OMNIPOTENCE TO READ EVERY MIND
AND TRAVEL THE WORLD AND BE ABLE TO FIND
ALL IN ONE NIGHT SO MUCH OF MANKIND
SANTA IS MOCKING THE HOLY GHOST

WE KNOW THAT JESUS MUST HAVE A LIST
TO BRING HIS REWARD AND NO ONE BE MISSED
SANTA IS A COUNTERFEIT, I INSIST

LIES DO RISE IN THE WORLD LIKE YEAST
AS THE WORLD WONDERS AFTER THE BEAST
THE SAME SYSTEM THAT DECLARES A SAINT
INTRODUCED SANTA WITH SPIRITUAL TAINT

SO MANY SAY JESUS IS WHY THEY CELEBRATE
BUT THE DEVIL IS THE ONE THEY DECIDED TO DATE
WHO BELIEVES THAT JESUS WOULD CONDONE WHAT MOST DO?
THOSE WHO ARE LEAD BY A DEMON CREW

YOU KNOW WHAT’S BEING DONE IN THE NAME OF FUN
ALL THAT JESUS SAID SHOULD NOT BE DONE
WHO WOULD CELEBRATE JESUS BY TAKING DRUGS
AND GETTING SLOPPY DRUNK FROM FERMENTED JUGS?

HOW CAN JESUS BE HONORED WITHOUT A SCRIPTURE BEING READ,
BUT PROMOTING EVIL, UP LIFTING SATAN INSTEAD?
OF SANTA AND JESUS, WHICH NAME IS HEARD THE MOST?
COULD THIS BE DIRECTED BY THE HOLY GHOST?

WHO GETS THE GLORY AT CHRISTMAS TIME?
SANTA REPLACED JESUS, A SPIRITUAL CRIME
BUT THEN, ON THE OTHER HAND
JESUS WAS ADDED TO CHRISTMAS BY MAN

SINCE WE SAY THAT JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THIS TIME
SHOULDN’T HE BE ELEVATED IN EVERYBODY’S MIND?
SHOULDN’T ALL OF THE MONEY BE SPENT FOR HIS CAUSE,
TO DRAW THE PEOPLE CLOSER TO HIM AND HIS LAWS?

IF JESUS GAVE A SPEECH, WHAT WOULD HE SAY
ABOUT THE WAY WE CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS TODAY?
WOULD HE BE HAPPY WITH THOSE ON EARTH
AND THE THINGS THEY DO TO CELEBRATE HIS BIRTH?

WOULD IT MAKE HIM HAPPY OR FEEL PRETTY SAD
IF HE LOOKED AT EVERY CHRISTMAS ADD?
WELL, I’VE GOT NEWS FOR EVERY ADD THAT’S DONE
JESUS HAS SEEN EVERY SINGLE ONE

THE ONE THAT SAYS, BUY LIQUOR TODAY
THE ONE THAT’S SO SEXY IN EVERY WAY
THE ONES THAT SHOWS SANTA STEALING HIS GLORY
WHILE JESUS IS LEFT OUT OF THE WHOLE AD’S STORY

SAYING THAT JESUS IS THE MAN OF THE HOUR
WHILE SHOWING THAT SANTA HAS ALL OF THE POWER
MUST BE AN INSULT RIGHT AWAY
JESUS IS BEING USED TODAY

PEOPLE WHO REALLY COULDN’T CARE LESS
WILL USE THE NAME OF JESUS TO SELL A DRESS
IF THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS IN CHARGE OF THIS THING
PREPARING PEOPLE FOR HEAVEN IS THE THEME HE WOULD BRING

OBEDIENCE TO GOD WOULD BE AT THE TOP OF THE LIST
NOTHING WOULD BE LEFT FOR SATAN TO TWIST
THE WAYS OF THE WORLD WOULD BE THROWN AWAY
THEN JESUS WOULDN’T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH CHRISTMAS DAY

I’VE HEARD THAT LOVE IS WHAT CHRISTMAS IS ALL ABOUT
BUT HOW CAN THAT BE TRUE WHEN GOD IS LEFT OUT?
HOW OFTEN IS GOD’S NAME EVEN HEARD
GOD IS LOVE, BUT WHAT ABOUT HIS WORD?

FEEDING THE HUNGRY SHOULD BE EVERY DAY
AFTER THIS SEASON IS LOVE TAKEN AWAY?
IF LOVE IS THE REASON WE CELEBRATE EACH YEAR
WOULD WE PROMOTE THE DRINKING OF BEER?

IF THE LOVE OF GOD WAS THE ACTUAL THEME
WOULD SO MUCH SEX BE TAKEN TO THE EXTREME?
SO MANY ADDS ARE SEXY TO CATCH THE EYE
IS IT GOD’S WORD THEY ARE TRYING TO GET YOU TO BUY?

OH, WE PERFORM GOOD DEEDS. WE CLOTHE AND WE FEED
BUT IS IT GOD’S WORD WE’RE TELLING EVERYBODY TO READ?
IF IT’S TIME TO GIVE GIFTS TO THE OLD AND THE YOUTH
EVERY GIFT SHOULD BE LEADING TO THE FULL GOSPEL TRUTH

HOW CAN WE CLAIM GOD’S LOVE DEEP WITHIN
AND WATCH IN AMAZEMENT AS MEN COMMIT SIN?
KNOWING THAT THE ROAD IS LEADING TO HELL
WOULD THE LOVE OF GOD GIVE US SOMETHING TO TELL?

WHO IS REALLY BEHIND THE SPIRIT WE FEEL?
WHO WOULD TELL US TO LOVE IS TO STEAL?
GIFTS ARE STOLEN FROM CARS EVERY YEAR
HOW MANY BIBLES ARE STOLEN MY DEAR?

JUST LOOK AROUND IN EVERY STORE
HOW MUCH JESUS IS ON THE FLOOR?
COULD HE BE HAPPY WITH ALL THAT HE MIGHT SEE?
WHERE IS THE WORD THAT WOULD SET MEN FREE?

CHRIST IS NO MORE IN CHRISTMAS THAN IN HALLOWEEN
WE CAN PUT HIM ON A BROOM AND SAY HE SWEEPS OUR HEART CLEAN
WE CAN SAY WHATEVER WE WANT TO SAY
LIKE, “THE BROOM REPRESENTS OUR SINS BEING SWEPT AWAY”

JESUS AND PAGAN CAN NOT BE MIXED
AND ADDING GOD’S NAME IS NOT A FIX
GOD DOES NOTHING IN CONCERT WITH THE DEVIL
MIXING GOD IN IS SIN’S HIGHEST LEVEL
THAT SAME TRICK WORKED WELL ON EVE
MIXING TRUTH AND LIE MADE IT EASY TO DECEIVE

SO, WHO HAS INSPIRED THIS ATMOSPHERE?
I THINK THE ANSWER IS VERY CLEAR
IF GOD’S SPIRIT WAS IN CHARGE OF THIS THING
LEADING PEOPLE TO CHRIST IS WHAT EACH GIFT WOULD BRING

IF WE STUDIED GOD’S WORD AND TAUGHT HOW TO PRAY
JESUS WOULDN’T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH CHRISTMAS DAY
IF FROM THE BEGINNING THIS WAS THE THEME
CHRIST WOULD HAVE BEEN HAPPY AT THE WHOLE SCENE

BUT SINCE MAN CHOSE TO PUSH HIM OUT OF THE WAY
JESUS NEVER WAS OR WILL BE IN CHRISTMAS DAY

'I Am NOT Ashamed of the Gospel of Christ!'

When Jesus said he was not of the world and neither are his people, how can we then live as believers and follow the worlds way through vain traditions of men?  Their traditions nullify the word of God and are called hypocrites as spoken first by the prophet Isaiah: “Ye hypocrites, well did E-sai’as(Elijah) prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men”.(Matthew 15:7-9….Isaiah 29:13). I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.(John 17:14)…….(1 John 2:15).

    Paul addressed this issue before Peter when he saw those who believed on Christ and those who were saying they are living of the truth of the gospel…

We have all been called in these end times to complete a mission that the MOST HIGH ordained since before the foundation of the world it is our mission to complete that job before time runs out in this world. To be in the world but not part of it as the set apart Spirit in all of us guides us into all truth. The restoration has already begun!
