and this is why…
Firstly as a Bible believer, born again and baptized adult. I believe in every breathed and inspired Word of God. I found out the truth of what I had been taught and learned as a child and young adult, was a bold faced lie leading me down a path of destruction. When Daniel said knowledge would increase he was not joking. The proof is in the the clay pot speaking to you now. Seek and you will find. Ask and it will be given to you. Don’t ask out of greed cause it will not be given to you. Knock and the door will be opened. YHVH is so specific about everything cause He is a Big and perfect God.
Secondly I will not conform to this world where the evil and wicked reside. I will not listen to doctrines of men. Men changing laws and days!!!! I am an over comer even though all this christmas stuff is in your face everyday at this time of year. It bothers me utterly to see how this world is so corvetess, vain and deceived. Complacent with their lives and being programmed by everything you watch and hear Even my own brethren uh uh uh uh uh. Yeshua is very saddened at your ignorance and vain worship of Him.
Thirdly This is a pagan traditional holiday with hidden lies all through it. Stemming before the Birth of Messiah. I can’t believe how many christians, my own brethren that still celebrate and Sin all the way through the holiday. You lie to your children, and have taught them to lie by telling them Santa Claus brought this gift or that gift… eahhh lie .. you tell them Santa is coming on a sleigh with 8 reindeer to bring them gifts eahhh lie.. you say he is every where eahhh lie… You tell them he is magical that he can do all things eaaaahhhh lie … Fact is there is little known about santa except for that he was a Russian Bishop and would klaun Bauf the naughty children… Santa mocks God!! Take the letter n from the middle of his name and put it at the end and what do you have? Santa is not omnipotent and omniscient!! ..
Fourthly you run around like chickens with your heads cut off to buy buy buy … for who?? each other?? what was the original message for the season to start with? yet your buying gifts for each other?. Are you praising and worshiping each other? Who is getting the Praise and Glory? This Holiday has every one panicking at the last minute … stress, stress, stress, which leads to what? frustration, frustration, frustration, then what?? hurry, hurry, hurry, so where is your focus??? It certainly is not on God and the birth of Jesus/Yeshua.. besides the fact that this isn’t even the date He was born… Lucifer that sneaky trickster has you all wrapped around his baby finger.
1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
1 John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
James 3:6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity; so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.
James 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
I’m not going to go through the 248 matches on scripture but these are a few. I can see that most people do not read the Word because if they did they would see this truth instead of listening to doctrines of men . I am in no means perfect… I am a sinner! I strive to be righteous and Holy like Yeshua but I still fall short of the Glory of God. There is no one who is perfect, but, the Divine Father in Heaven and His only Son Yeshua, but, most of you christians need to give your minds and hearts a reality check … you are all about me me me. Are you one that picks certain scriptures that convenience you? Are your preachers feeding you correctly? or are they cherry picking to suit what they think you need to hear or think what you want to hear? Abba Father knows your works and your fruits. He knows everything about you even before the very foundation and creation of this planet, before you came into existence; He even knows how many hairs you have on your head.
Matthew 7:22 and 23 says.. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
OK so now that I got that off my chest! Let me tell you Historical roots of this Pagan Holiday and the Question I have asked “Why was this date chosen? what is so special about it? Well this date is SPECIAL to the pagans and the god of the unholy:”
So now you know why I don’t celebrate this worldly pagan holiday.
