In October many celebrated National Coming Out Day and Halloween. November brought us the election, Thanksgiving and Black Friday. December will be filled with the hustle and bustle of  Christmas - Santa Claus, Rudolph, Gnome nativity sets, Christmas trees and jingle bells.

Christmas, the Mass of Christ.

Perhaps it is time to take a hard look at Christ-mas, X-mas to some. Does Christmas REALLY celebrate the birthday of Christ? Was Jesus born on December 25th? Did the original apostles, who knew Jesus personally and were taught by Him, celebrate His birthday on December 25th? Did they celebrate it AT ALL?

If Christmas is the biggest Christian holiday of the year  [or is the "biggest Christian" holiday Easter complete with bunnies and colored eggs] ~ then WHY do so many non-Christians observe it?  Why do people exchange presents with family members, friends and relatives at Christmas time? Was it because the wise men presented gifts to the Christ-child? [Remember, the wisemen did not exchange gifts among themselves, but "they presented unto HIM gifts." They gave their gifts to Christ, not to their friends, relatives, or to one another].

Nowhere in scripture are we instructed to celebrate the birth of Christ. Christmas came to the world from the Roman Catholic Church, and has no authority but that of the Roman Catholic Church. It was not instituted by Christ or the apostles, or by Bible authority. Holly wreaths, mistletoe, gift exchange, Christmas trees and yule logs all have their origins in pagan worship.

Christmas has become a commercial season. It's sponsored and kept alive by the heaviest retail advertising campaigns of the year. You see a Santa  in every store with elves at his side while Rudolph waits at the North Pole for the big night to arrive. Ads keep us deluded and deceived about the "Christmas spirit." A gullible people has become so inoculated, many take offense when told the truth. But the "Christmas spirit" is created each year, not to honor Christ, but to sell merchandise. Like all Satan's delusions, it appears as an "angel of light" made to appear good. Just check out the colored lights throughout neighborhoods across America - count the chreche, then count the Santa's, reindeer... Billions of dollars are spent in this merchandising spree every year, while the cause of Christ and the work of the LORD suffer.

We profess to be a Christian nation, but we dwell in Babylon and we don't even know it.

  1. AMEN sister, my sentiments exactly! As a matter of fact, I posted some similar concerns on my blog - http://iamhis-lyn.blogspot.com/2012/12/tis-season.html
    This holiday has nothing to do with Christ at all, it is geared towards the carnal and fleshly lustful desires of unregenerates.


    Good post sister!

  2. I grieve that so many professing Christians seem to be caught up in the hype of Christ-mas. I am grateful that once I too was blind, but now I see.

    May God open the eyes of many this holiday season. As watchman we are called to speak truth -God will convict,teach and guide.
