Is Christmas Really about Jesus Christ and His Work or is it really about Satan the devil and all of his work?
Who really is the Christ that is recognized and worshipped at Christmas? Is He the true Jesus Christ of Scripture and of the Bible, who stands for righteousness and came to teach righteousness and to do a work that turns people away from their iniquities, their unrighteousness, their sins, Acts 3:26? Or is this recognized christ really a created, raised up image of Satan the devil, the father of all lying, all deception, all idolatry, lust, and all such sins of iniquity, and unrighteousness, and turns people to sin, John 8:43-44?
The devil has a work at Christmas to keep these sins of lying, idolatry, coveting, taking Christ's Name in vain and all such sins minimized and to be accepted by the churches and its Christ professing people as good and clean fun and joy. Satan does this by causing people to take the name of Jesus Christ in vain, to no good use, and uses verses of Scripture about Christ's birth to commit this abomination by associating Jesus Christ and His Holy, Righteous, Name with Christmas, to try to cover over all the sins involved with Christmas observance. This is done in order to Christianize this day and season in the minds and hearts of the people. Every person needs to ask the question, am I involved in Satan's work and deceivingly made to believe that Christmas is about Jesus Christ and His work?
When a confessing Christian society lifts some verses from Scripture pertaining to the birth of the true Jesus Christ and then twists some of those verses to claim that Jesus was born in the winter on Dec. 25, having no proof, and no Scripture verses whatsoever stating this to be the truth, they are beginning to lay a foundation of lies. And then they state with their many programs displayed at the season of Christmas, that it was 3 wise men that brought the baby Jesus gifts without any proof of Scripture of how many wise men actually came to see Jesus, then more lies are produced. Then one finds out that this Dec. 25th is actually the same time, season, and day the pagan sun worshippers used with all of their pagan customs, to worship their god, the Sun God. What should be emerging in your mind? Is Christmas really Christ's work or is it Satan's work?
What we have here is a society led by Satan and his ministers of light, who are today's professing Christian ministers, using the pagan symbols of the sun, as used in past sun worship, and using Scriptures pertaining to Christ's birth, that introduce the living Son of God, and joining them together in a worship on the same day. Nobody but the devil and his confessing Christian ministers of light , would inspire this unholy holiday of celebration to work out all in the way that it has in order to continue to deceive and confuse the people. God is not the author of confusion, I Cor.14:33, but Satan the devil and his ministers of righteousness and light are. So with this spiritual understanding made known to you, whose work is beginning to be manifested in your mind and heart about Christmas? Is Christmas of God's work, or is it really Satan's work of darkness appearing as light?
We can begin to see that this believed to be christ in Christmas was birthed on lies, and is associated with idolatry and is not the true Jesus Christ of the Bible and Scripture, but a new raised up and created, false christ that the average sinning person can accept and relate with. Why is this so? Because Satan is the father of lies, deception and all sins, and so every sinning person that sees no need to repent can relate with Satan and his work and will continue in Satan's evil work that created Christmas.
This created Christmas image is a false christ image, which has been created in the image of Satan the devil, and whose work and fruit of sin is a far cry from the teachings and work of the true Jesus Christ. Christ came to turn people away from their sins, not to sins of lying and idolatry and many other commandment transgressions. The true Jesus Christ would never approve of Himself and His Name to be associated with lies and idolatry and all such sins, neither would His true followers. If this was the case, then His death of dying for our sins, to turn people away from their sins (Iniquities) as God pointed out as is His purpose for being born, Acts 3:26, would be in vain and for no godly use whatsoever.
The work of God the Father and the work of the true Jesus Christ is stated and written for everyone to understand in Acts 3:26 "Unto you first God, having raised up His Son Jesus, sent Him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities." Have today's professing Christians been turned away from their sins? Absolutely not! They have been taught by the devil's ministers of light to accept all their sins and sinning ways as in the Christmas celebration as normal Christian behavior. So today's professing Christians confess that they are still sinners, and God says to them the wages of their on going sins is death. Rom. 6:23. However, today's professing Christians do not believe their false christ that they worship will cause them harm, whereby they will receive the judgment of death in Christ's coming judgment on the earth.
Christmas and all of its celebration is the devil's work, and turns everyone to sin. So for those that have eyes to see and ears to hear, they should plainly understand that the worship of their false Christmas christ at Christmas, is all part of the worship and work of the god of this world, who is actually Satan, the devil, and who has transformed himself as an angel of light, II Cor. 11:14-15. Satan inspires all of his ministers and people to use the customs and rituals of the past, a time when he caused people to use lights in the worship of his sun god, a false god that he created in the minds of the people.
It is no different today where Satan has once again, through his ministers of light, caused people to disobey God, their Creator, and inspires them to use lights of the past sun worship idolatry by raising up and hanging up and creating all kinds of lights during this season of Christmas, as well as raising up all kinds of the other pagan, idolatrous practices and customs during this idolatrous season. People today believe that the Jesus Christ that they serve and have raised up in their minds will not punish them for their sins. What a terrifying day it will be when the true Jesus Christ shows up to judge the peoples of this earth! Christ has prophesied, He will come back and will reject all sinners and all of Satan's ministers of light, as workers of iniquities, as workers of sin, as workers of no law, Mat. 7:21-23.
Satan has inspired his people to attach all of his evil, idolatrous work of Christmas and all of its fruits of sin to a supposedly time of the real Christ's birth, to try to christianize this season. In this way, he can use this event of Christ's birth to help cover for all his created, temporal pleasures of sin and trappings of sin, that the season of Christmas creates. And most all people today gullibly go along and accept all of this cover-up deception about their sins as being nothing in their celebration that the birth of their created, false christ is really the reason for the season. Is all of this keeping of Christmas and its deceptions and trappings of sin, things that are pleasing in the sight of God and our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ? God forbid!
The apostle John, inspired by Jesus Christ, writes in I John 3:22, "Whatsoever we ask, (when we pray) we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight." The question then is, does keeping Christmas with all of its idolatrous customs qualify as keeping God's commandments and as one of those things that is pleasing in His sight? Or does Christmas and its season's celebration qualify as the fruit of sin, God's commandment transgressions and is the work of Satan and his ministers of light, and will bring about, as all sin will do, the penalty of death if there is no repentance and one continues in this unrighteous behavior?
Nowhere in Scripture can anyone find anything in the least that the true Jesus Christ commanded and taught pertaining to keeping His birth as a holiday, or to remember His birth as the most holy day of the year. Christmas, as it is today, is society's most holy day, whereby nearly all work of all trades and professions and trade merchants totally shut down on Christmas. All of today's professing Christian churches join into this and preach Christmas as a good thing to do in celebration. Today's Christian ministers and pastors and their fruit qualify well as truly being Satan's ministers of light and righteousness , II Cor. 11:13-15, appearing as of the light of Christ, but are ministers of great darkenss and unrighteousness of Satan, the devil.
Christ in no Scripture gave any date as to the exact day of His birth. Does that in itself tell everybody something about how unimportant it is in Christ's mind about keeping a day to celebrate His birth? However, on the other hand, Christ says a lot about remembering His Sabbaths, His Holy Days, and His death, His Passover, and gives us a calendar of dates to remember those special Holy events and Holy days, with special purposes that nobody seems to desire to do, or want to understand and keep today. So not only Satan and his ministers of righteousness qualify as great sinners, liars, idolators, but also their people qualify well as people manifesting they are of Satan too and are also doing his work, I John 3:8-10.
The bottom line question to all of this should be; is Christmas the fruit and work of the true Jesus Christ, or is this whole season really about the creation of a false christ-like image, that all of Christianity accepts, worships, and honors? This is a christ-like, raised up image, but made all after the ways of Satan, that accepts all his deception and customs of the past as being good and acceptable. Satan accepts all of Christmas and its customs and says to all, that Christmas is good and pleasurable to the eyes, and good for the children even if it generates and breeds the seeds of the sins of lying and deception. If you truly know the true Jesus Christ, then His Spirit is saying to you that Christmas is all about bearing the fruit of sin and attracts and pulls people deeper every year into the clutches of Satan, and His Spirit is saying to you and all, that Christmas is all the work of Satan, the devil! Every confessing Christian person and family head, if there are any family heads left in our society, should study this out, in order to be approved of God and do what is pleasing in His sight and set his house in order before the time that the true Jesus Christ will reveal himself to all people on this earth..
Everyone should examine one's motives to know if those motives and works are of God, or of Satan, the devil. The real Lord Jesus Christ of Scripture commands through the pen of the apostle Paul, II Tim. 2:15, "Study to show yourself approved unto God. " Also remember in I Cor. 13:3 where Paul writes, that a person can give all that he or she has to the poor, or to his children, and can also even give his own body to be burned, and still not have God's true love. Paul says that your life of giving and sacrifice can be all in vain if there is no obedience to God's commandments which is the foundation for building and developing God's love inspired by His Holy Spirit.
There is no salvation, no eternal life, no place for you in God's kingdom, if one does not have the true love of God being developed in him or her and you cannot have the true love of God unless you are obeying His commandments, all 10 of them. Lying to your children, worshipping an idol, engaging in idolatrous customs of past idolatry, coveting, taking Christ's name in vain, are all transgressions of God's 10 commandments. This should cause every confessing Christian to examine, and ask questions about his life and all of his holiday celebrations. Is all of this really pleasing to God?
Christmas and its season manifests a time and season for all people to once again help generate a sinful season by engaging and participating in all the work of Satan, the pleasures and trappings of sin. Every year Christmas provides the opportunities for parents of children to once again begin lying to them about the amazing and deceptive, miraculous work of their Santa Claus idol, who is falsely provided for children to look to and raise up in their tender minds. Is all of this lying and deception to the little ones the work of Jesus Christ, or is it all the wicked, sinful work of Satan, the devil? Jesus Christ says in Mat. 18:6 "But whoso shall offend ( deceive, cause to believe a lie, cause to accept idols, made sex objects) one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea."
In John 3:8-10 The scripture says "He that commits sin is of the devil: for the devil sinned from the beginning. v9 Whosoever is born of God does not commit sin: v10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil ---." Can any Scriptures be any plainer than these, any plainer about sin and continuing in sins and manifesting one as being a part of Satan and his evil work?
Christmas is the season whereby once again the foundation for idolatry is raised up and perpetuated through its accepted customs, one being the created, Santa Claus idol, to deceive God's little children, who are also God's little ones if the families are confessing true Christians, otherwise they are Satan's little children, being taught in all of his evil ways of sin. Are these sins of idolatry, the deceptions and created false images of the true Jesus Christ, wholesome and righteous things that God is well pleased with during this holiday celebration? Absolutely not!
Look at all of the hype of a lying Christmas spirit, giving to go into debt, created false images of christ, worshipping Satan and believing it is Christ, a created Santa Claus idol, all the pleasures of sin and customs coming out of a sun worship of the sinful past and put into this idolatrous season. Is all of this the work of the true Jesus Christ, or is it all really the evil work and deception of Satan, the devil, that He accepts and is well pleased with? Remember Jesus Christ says that Satan is the father of all lies and all deceptions, John 8:44 "You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."
All the idolatrous customs, rituals and symbols from the past, that were used in the pagan day of Saturnalia, a season and time that was used for the worship of the sun, are mainly the same symbols, customs and rituals that are used today in the celebrations of the Christmas season. Are these good and pleasing things borrowed from the past idolaters now used in the worship of the true Jesus Christ, that God is well pleased with, or are these borrowed customs in truth evil trappings of sin and the evil works of Satan, the devil, that God commands His people to not do and is of the Babylon system of abominations that God commands his people to come out of her? Christ says in Rev.18:4, "Come out of her (Babylon) my people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues."
Not only has Christmas been created for a season for lying and idolatry, it has become a season for unlawful lust, coveting, stealing, shoplifting and going into debt. These are all manifestations of a people following the god of the flesh. Are all these evil sins, things that are pleasing to God and Jesus Christ? Absolutely not! They are never pleased with any holiday that is built on these sins and evils! In fact, They abhor, hate and loath all such a days and seasons. Read about it in Isa. 1:14-16.
However, Satan loves these days and seasons because they are all part of him and his mind, his work, his deeds, and all of his trappings of sin, and seductions in deception to commit sin. As the Scripture states in Rom. 7:8-11 that sin, along with Satan's help, deceives people into believing there is eternal life through sin if you will just accept the Name of Jesus Christ. Ask any professing Christian today if they are still a sinner, and they will answer that they are still a sinner, still living in darkness, but believing they are living in the light and believing their false christ they worship each Sunday has forgiven them of all their ongoing sins. They are living in a state of great deception thinking that they are saved by God's grace, but it is a false grace. However, God has the last word in all of their deceptions and sin. Satan has done a powerful job of deceiving them, and most of them will not change or truly repent of their sins. They are manifesting they are the children of the devil, John 3:8-10, and hate and persecute all servants of Christ that stands for the work of the true Jesus Christ and His true work of righteousness.
Christmas, Halloween and all of the other ungodly holidays of the year, are all created by its father and god, who is Satan, the devil. Satan created his holidays to appear as godly days, at the same time to have all the subtle trappings of sin, wickedness and all evil. Satan created Christmas to bear the fruit of his nature, the nature of sin. Sin comes from all who choose to live their lives by the fruit of the "tree of knowledge of good and evil." Satan made Eve, Adam and all today to believe that by choosing this tree, this forbidden way of life, will make one wise, that its fruit is pleasant to one's eyes, (Christmas is an example), and that its fruit appears to be good and wholesome, Genesis 3:3-6. God very plainly states in verse 3, and tells all to not touch it, not to be involved with it and its fruit, or you will die, you will perish from the earth!
When a family head permits and leads his family to get involved with Christmas, he opens his house to all kinds of sin, lying, idolatry, false christ worship, taking God's Name in vain, Sabbath transgression, and temptations to break all of God's commandments. Yet, every family head believes that he and his family will not have to suffer the wages of sin. Today's accepted, false, christian ministers of light, preaching righteousness through a faith only theology, are serving Satan and he assures all of his people that there will be no punishment for their sins.
This is a terrible error in today's preaching. They teach family heads and all, that all professed to be Christians, are all sinners and there is nothing anyone of them can do to change their state of sinning, not even through the true Jesus Christ and the gift of His Holy Spirit. This is another of Satan's wicked, evil, powerful lies in all the churches. Repentance to them is just a form of a futile religious exercise and really means nothing in being freed from their sins. They all believe that this accepted evil way of life is pleasing in God's sight! However, the god they are pleasing and doing his will, is the god of this world, Satan the devil. Revelation 12:9. Satan has them all deceived and is well pleased with all the Christmas observers.
Christmas and its season, creates or generates a false spirit of a seasonal joy and a seasonal happiness that dries up shortly after Christmas is over. People get more depressed at this season than at any other time of the year. There is more use of alcohol and other drugs that sedate the mind and brain at the Christmas season than at any other time. And Christmas and its spirit to people is like one of today's drugs, that gives them a temporary high, but a terrible let down and depression later. Why is Christmas this way? It is all because Christmas and all of its doings is not the work of the true Spirit of Jesus Christ, but a lying, fake spirit of Satan, the devil, that inspires its participants to get involved with all the make believe love, deception of a seasonal joy and a temporal happiness. This is what keeping Christmas and its customs creates in all of its participants.
The Christ of the Bible warns all that loves to make and live a lie, that they will not enter through the gates into the (eternal) city. The true Jesus Christ tells all in Revelation 22:14-15, "Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the (eternal) city. V. 15, For without (outside of the city) are dogs, (people with grievous hearts pursuing the evils of the flesh), sorcerers (people buying, selling and using drugs) and whoremongers (people seeking all kinds of unlawful sex) and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loves and makes a lie.
In much of the English speaking world, every year at the Christmas season, people get involved in a spirit that has been accepted to be of love and joy of creating and making the big lie about Christmas! Are you one of them? God tells you to come out of it or perish.
A final note to consider in Christmas observance
The true Jesus Christ of Scripture, and not one of the false christs raised up and worshipped in all the professing Christian churches across the land, says in Luke14:28 in whatever endeavor we seek to do, or come to see we need to do in our life, that we need to be wise by first counting the cost of that decision, or else we will be ashamed later. What is the cost of coming out of Christmas of the Babylon system to serve your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and His commands? In other words what is cost of coming out of all the celebration and works of the Christmas season to submit to the commands of Jesus Christ to come out of Babylon, to repent and come out of all of her sins of observing Christmas?
The cost to you will in all probability cause the loss of friendship with your immediate family, along with the friendships of your close friends. You will receive persecution, maybe in words of anger and hate against you for your decision. They will say to you that you are now following some cult by your decision that you have made not to observe Christmas anymore in order for you to begin to serve the true Jesus Christ. Cult by the faulty definition the world's religions, means to depart from the doctrine that they have accepted to be of the Bible, not what is truly of the Bible and the true worship of Jesus Christ. That is not the true definition of cult. Look it up in the dictionary. People in Christ's day called Him a cult or sect. Why, because He came preaching doctrine and teachings different from what the religious leaders of His day were teaching and believing to be the doctrine of God.
However, by one's decision not to observe Christmas you are departing from what all the Christian world has accepted as Christian doctrine about keeping a religious holiday even though there is no Scripture commanding or stating such doctrine. You are now confessing to all men that you desire to truly worship the true Jesus Christ and to follow all of His teachings and doctrines and put the true Christ first in your life. You are stating that you desire not to compromise what the Scriptures says about people obeying sin, instead of obeying God's 10 commandments. You are saying to them by your decision that you are now putting your true savior, Jesus Christ, first in your life and doing it before all men, and all of the world, regardless of the consequences of the evil that men may try to put before you.
Your Savior tells you in Mat. 10:32-40 "whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword (meaning mental and spiritual warfare).
Jesus Christ continues in Mat.10 - v.35 "For I am come to set a man at variance against his Father and the daughter against her mother and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. He that loves father or mother (and church friends) more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that takes not his cross, (one that will not repent, will not recognize nor accept the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for his sins of Christmas observance and all such sins) and follows after me is not worthy of me. He that finds his life (life in Christmas and all such sins) shall lose it: and he that loses his life for my sake shall find it. He that receives you receives Me, and he that receives Me receives Him that sent me."
Can you now see that Christmas is all about Satan's work of leading people more into sin and iniquities and it is not about the work of Jesus Christ, whose work is to expose Satan's work of sins and darkness and to turn people away from these sins and all iniquities.
