As I write this post, I can simply begin to think how many may turn their hearts from the truth, but I think it’s best I share it regardless. The truth is the truth and it’s what the Father wants us to dwell in.
Question: as the world celebrates Christmas, what will you do?
- participate in the holiday “spirit”
- isolate myself from the world
- keep silent
- Share the truth behind Christmas
- none of these above
FACT: Christmas has nothing to do with Christ. The cutting of a tree, the placing of ornaments on a tree, the exchanging of gifts, etc are all practices of the Egyptians way before the Flood Days.
History traces Christmas back to the days of Nimrod’s where December 25 was his birthday. Who was Nimrod?
Nimrod is a descendent of Ham (Noah’s son). READ: Genesis 10:6-9
Here’s more about Nimrod:
The Bible does not identify Nimrod’s mother, or his date of birth, but Egyptian and Babylonian antiquities identify his mother as Semiramis, and his birthday is celebrated on 25th December. Sometimes Semiramis is referred to as the mother of Nimrod, and sometimes as his wife, leading to the belief that Nimrod married his mother.
The Biblical reference to Nimrod as a “mighty hunter” is important because he was seen as the Saviour of the ancient world for that very reason. People were living in small, scattered villages with little protection from wild animals. Nimrod was more than just a hunter, he was also a charismatic figure who could gather people together to build walled cities where they could live in safety. They were obedient to him as their leader, and considered that their loss of independence was a price worth paying for the safety that Nimrod and his kingdom offered.
There is nothing in the Bible about the death of Nimrod, but the ancient traditions suggest that he died a violent death. One tradition says that he was killed by a wild animal. Another says that Shem killed him because he had led the people into the worship of Baal.
His wife-mother, Semiramis, who had risen to greatness on his account, was not going to disappear into obscurity because of his death. Instead she pronounced him to be a god, so that she herself became a goddess. She produced another son, and proclaimed him to be the resurrected Nimrod. This was not difficult, because she was so promiscuous she produced many children whose father could not be identified. She proclaimed that she had gone down to the world of the dead, rescued Nimrod and brought him back.
Thus began the worship of Semiramis and the child-god, and the whole paraphanalia of the Babylonian religious system.
I want to keep this short: There’s so much to prove that Christmas has NOTHING to do with Christ, yet those who claim to be in Him are actually in Christmas.
As the world/Catholic Church celebrates Christmas reflect on these scriptures:
- John 15:19
- John 17:16-17
- Romans 12:2
- Jeremiah 10:1-5
- Amos 5:21
If your church celebrates Christmas, question how much of the truth it loves, or even knows. If Jesus askes us not to be of the world, why would He find it okay to celebrate “His” Christmas day?
Also take note, prior to leaving earth, He made it clear to remember his death. Read: Luke 22:19-20
But He never reminded us to remember His birthday. Hm.
“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4
I pray as the world celebrates its holidays, you make a wise decision. Some may think 1) everyone’s doing it 2) the holiday “spirit” is really loving 3) my friends celebrate it and I won’t reject them but just participate. If you’re saying the following I pray that you learn to put Yahweh before the world, your friends and yourself.
As for me, I take no parts in holidays!
Come out of her!
