BS21 - THE TRUTH ABOUT CHRISTMAS

(Ezekiel 44:23 KJV) And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.

(2 Corinthians 6:17-18 KJV) Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, {18} And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

(Philippians 2:12 KJV) Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling

SPEAK THE TRUTH IN LOVE

TRUTH NEVER HURTS THE CAUSE OF CHRIST

BE AN EXAMPLE

 

(2 Corinthians 13:8 KJV) For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.

(Acts 20:26-32 KJV) Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. {27} For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. {28} Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. {29} For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. {30} Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. {31} Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. {32} And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.

(1 Peter 5:2-4 KJV) Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; {3} Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. {4} And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

(Jude 1:3 KJV) Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

EARLY CHURCH DID NOT CELEBRATE BIRTH OF CHRIST

THEY CELEBRATED THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST

(2 Corinthians 6:16-17 KJV) And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. {17} Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

IDOLATROUS THINGS ARE UNCLEAN

WHAT HAS CHRISTMAS DONE?

(Mark 7:13 KJV) Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.

THE TRADITION THAT MAN HAS BUILT AROUND CHRISTMAS HAS MADE THE WORD OF GOD OF NONE EFFECT!

"Hark the herald angels sing..." Did the angels sing?? No! They prophesied and praised God!

(Luke 2:6-14 KJV) And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. {7} And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. {8} And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. {9} And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. {10} And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. {11} For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. {12} And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. {13} And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, {14} Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

(Job 38:7 KJV) When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

"We three Kings of orient are...." Were there three kings? ??

(Matthew 2:1-12 KJV) Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, {2} Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. {3} When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. {4} And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born. {5} And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet, {6} And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel. {7} Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, inquired of them diligently what time the star appeared. {8} And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also. {9} When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. {10} When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. {11} And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. {12} And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.

It does not say there were 3 - they were magi not kings = master astrologers from Persia, occult practitioners. The Magi were the king makers.

Jesus was already two years old when this happened.

(Matthew 2:13-16 KJV) And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him. {14} When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt: {15} And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son. {16} Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men.

(Luke 2:8 KJV) And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

In Israel it gets cold in the wintertime. They do not sleep in the fields with their flocks. The latest Jesus could have been born according to this was September or early October. Jesus was not born in November or December. Jesus was not born on December 25th. A hot, sweaty stable is where Jesus was born because Satan was trying to kill the baby and his mother.

(Colossians 2:8 KJV) Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

Vain deceit? Lying about Santa

Spend, spend, spend, Eat, eat, eat, etc.

More people commit suicide during this holiday season.

(Leviticus 4:27-28 KJV) And if any one of the common people sin through ignorance, while he doeth somewhat against any of the commandments of the LORD concerning things which ought not to be done, and be guilty; {28} Or if his sin, which he hath sinned, come to his knowledge: then he shall bring his offering, a kid of the goats, a female without blemish, for his sin which he hath sinned.

(2 Corinthians 7:1 KJV) Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

(Matthew 5:48 KJV) Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

(Psalms 19:12-14 KJV) Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults. {13} Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. {14} Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

You can repent now that you know the truth.

CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS - all come from pagan sexuality, witchcraft, idolatry from the devil or satan.

Hanging of the Greens - from Druid Witchcraft ceremonies, end of December

Misseltoe - Druid Witchcraft ritual held over a woman and do whatever they wanted to with the woman - sexual rites and fertility

Christmas tree - symbol of sexuality, fertility and reproduction the evergreen tree worshiped for hundreds of years before Christ

(Jeremiah 10:1-5 KJV) Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel: {2} Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. {3} For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the ax. {4} They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. {5} 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.

Yule Log - phallic symbol from Scandanavian god yule` 12 days of Christmas

Santa Claus - one of many anti-Christ spirit that has replaced Jesus in the lives and hearts of children everywhere - he is a supernatural entity. Children petition him and give him offerings and if you are good, you are rewarded with gifts.

(1 John 2:18 KJV) Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

(Hebrews 9:28 KJV) So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

(The only scripture in the Bible that teaches the two comings of Jesus)

Middle of 5th century when the celebration of Christmas started.

Pagans had holiday on December 25th - Saturnalia

(1 Corinthians 10:13-14 KJV) There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. {14} Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.

(1 Corinthians 10:19-21 KJV) What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing? {20} But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. {21} Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.

DECISION TIME FOR YOU.

SOLUTION FOR THIS SIN AND ANY OTHERS.

(1 John 1:9-10 KJV) If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. {10} If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

(1 John 2:1-6 KJV) My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: {2} And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. {3} And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. {4} He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. {5} But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. {6} He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
