CHRISTMAS WHERE DID IT COME FROM?
IS TIME TO DECIDE WHO WILL YOU SERVE!
Israel was condemned for Worshipping Tammuz in Ezekiel 8:13-14 He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do. Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the YAHUWAH's house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz. . Tammuz rites are alive and doing well every December 25. Our sovereign Creator warns not to have anything to do with them, including lighting a Yule log, setting up an evergreen tree, hanging up wreaths and holly, and lighting Christmas candles.
You cannot serve two Masters 2 Corinthians 6:14,17; "Be not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion has light with darkness? Wherefore come out from among them and be separate, says Yahuah, and touch not the unclean thing: and I will receive you."
We can fool ourselves by arguing that we are in a paganism society and therefore we can't help becoming involved in its ways. Yet the Savior YAHUSHA asked the Father in John 17:15: "I pray not that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil." It is possible to be in the world and yet not be a part of it.Some will argue that Christmas is mainly for the enjoyment of children and is of no real harm. Beside teaching them to LIE and create false Entity that we are accountable for bringing us present each year. If there is no Yahuah in heaven, they are probably be right. But the Mighty One of the Bible is quite particular about how we Worship Him and He has no tolerance for heathen Traditions or man's own reasoning. He says, Proverbs 14:12. "There is a way which seems right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death,"
Timothy II 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of Elohim, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in Righteousness: That the man of Elohim may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. When we go outside the Bible for anything--especially to indulge in rites of ancient pagans we are asking for trouble.
LEARN NOT THE WAY OF THE HEATHEN
Yahuah is good at telling us that the same Baal Worship from the Old Testament is still here today and more Elegant then Ever. Does this mean that Baal Worship is AMERICA together with Christianity?
Jeremiah 10:1-5 Hear ye the word which the Yahuah speaketh unto you, O house of Israel: Thus saith the Yahuah, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth atree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the ax. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good. Deuteronomy 12:32 What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it. Malachi 3:6: "For I am Yahuah, I change not .
Revelation 22:18-19 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, Elohim shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, Elohim shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. The Fact is that Christmas a diversion of the one called the Beast to intended to deflect our attention from the TRUE HOLY DAYS of the Bible and get us all caught up in man-made ones that give him glory? Or can we just brush it off as an innocuous time of good cheer, no harm done? Matthew 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. The Bible speaks of conversion like little children, children always obey and believe their parents.
In Corinthians Paul wrote, asking the same question of them. They had a problem with wanting to go back to their old familiar, Babylon's ways too, even after knowing the truth and accepting it. Paul made it clear. You cannot mix unholy worship with holy worship.
Corinthians I 10:19-22 What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing? But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to Devils, and not to Elohim: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Yahuah, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the YAHUWAH's table, and of the table of devils. Do we provoke the Yahuah to jealousy? are we stronger than he? Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve Elohim and mammon.
HE WILL SPIT YOU OUT..
A person who knows what is right but doesn't follow it commits Sin, according to James 4:17. Only going halfway toward rooting out error makes one lukewarm. Yahuah says a lukewarm person He will spue out of His mouth, Revelation 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
John I 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of Elohim was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
Most people do not realize where this celebration actually began and what the different aspects of this season represent! Most people don't realize that when America became a Nation, Christmas was not celebrated until the Roman Catholic instituted it here. They believe this celebration originated in The Holy Scriptures when the Messiah was born. But if we would understand the Feast of Tabernacles we would know that the appointed time was not on Christmas. They believe the Messiah was born on December 25th and that they are celebrating His birthday. The Encyclopedia Britannica, Volume II (1943-1973), under Christmas, we find: In the Roman world, the Saturnalia was a time of merrymaking and exchanging of gifts. December 25th was also regarded as the birthdate of the Iranian Mystery god, Mithra, the Sun of Righteousness. On the Roman New Year houses were decorated with greenery and lights and gifts were given to children. To these observances were added the German and Celtic Yule rites...Food and good fellowship, the Yule Log and Yule Cakes, greenery and fir trees, gifts and greetings all commemorated different aspects of this festive season. Fires and lights, symbols of warmth and lasting life have always been associated with the winter festival, both pagan and Christian. Romans 5:13 (For until the law SIN was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of Yahuah is eternal life through YAHUSHA Messiah our Master.
IS ETERNITY WORTH THAT?
