Stop Lying Church!

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 1 Cor. 13:6

Therefore, it is in love that I share what I share {CAPPING for emphesis only} concerning this issue.

We are to worship God in spirit AND in TRUTH [John 4:24]. This simply can NOT be done while perpetuating and justifying a flat-out lie. Dear Christian, pastor, evangelist, missionary, layperson, etc., most of you acknowledge that Jesus was NOT born on December 25th. Therefore, all of your birthday celebration on that day is in vain. It is a lie. And you are knowingly perpetuating it [James 4:17]! The pagans know this. The witches know this. The occult and atheists know this. It’s why they mock you. It’s why others are confused and say that “Jesus is just another dying and resurrecting sun-god born on Dec. 25th.” and thus they reject Him as another fantasy – a myth just like all the others. YOU are leading such people astray! After doing all of the research I did for my first book, I could no longer play this game. Nearly all of the traditions we practice on December 25th can easily be traced back to ancient Babylon and Nimrod worship. HE was the one born on December 25th and nearly all of the false sun-gods that trace back to him were as well. Let’s narrow it down to Baal (who’s name means “lord”). The Israelites CONSTANTLY reverted back to worship of Baal, while claiming to serve YHWH. It’s the reason why Elijah had to show up the first time and I suspect it is why he will return before the Day of the Lord:

Malachi 4:

2 But unto you that fear my NAME [not title] shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts.

4 REMEMBER YE THE LAW OF MOSES my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord:

Elijah is coming to restore the NAME of YHWH and to cause people to “remember the law of Moses”. In that light, I suspect it is not a “coincidence” that most of our English Bibles have substituted the Holy Name of YHWH with the generic word “LORD” (which is what Baal means in Hebrew). Not much has changed. Add people like Marcion and Constantine to the mix, and we are right back to the same activity that the Israelites were prone to doing all throughout the OT. Consider just these two examples:

Exodus 32:

3 And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.

4 And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

5 And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, Tomorrow is a feast to the LORD.

6 And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play.

Amos 5:

21 “I hate, I despise your feast days, And I do not savor your sacred assemblies.

22 Though you offer Me burnt offerings and your grain offerings, I will not accept them, Nor will I regard your fattened peace offerings.

23 Take away from Me the noise of your songs, For I will not hear the melody of your stringed instruments.

24 But let justice run down like water, And righteousness like a mighty stream.

Many claim that they can’t see a direct correlation between the Exodus 32/ Amos 5 accounts and what Christians are doing today. I fail to see how they can miss it though! In Exodus 32, the Israelites had just been delivered by the hand of YHWH Himself. Then, they created a golden calf and said that it represented THAT God (YHWH). And to be sure we know this, Moses wrote that the people and Aaron declared that the party they were about to hold would be “to the LORD” which really SHOULD read, “to YHWH”. Thanks to bogus English translations, we miss the point. They were associating the TRUE God of the Universe with false gods, while claiming to celebrate in His name. That is EXACTLY what Christians are doing on Christmas!! And in Amos 5, YHWH is NOT against His own Feasts, which were established in Leviticus 23. No. He was against what the Israelites had done to pollute them as they also carried Sikkuth, Moloch and Chiun into them [Amos 5:25,26].

We KNOW Christ was not born on Dec. 25th. We also know that Nimrod/Tammuz/Zeus/Mithra, etc. were. In fact, in 168 B.C., on December 25th, Zeus’ birthday, Antiochus Epiphanes IV set up in the Jerusalem Temple a statue of Zeus, the Greek sun god, upon the altar, thus defiling it. Yet we PRETEND that we are honoring our true King in our heart (which is now the Temple of God) with rituals and practices that all originate with the same false king/god and somehow think that’s ok?

In Leviticus 23, we learn about the TRUE holidays which ALL point to Christ (His birth, death, burial, resurrection, power, return, justice and reign) and yet, thanks to Christmas practicing, “New Testament Bible-believing (Dispensationalist) Christian” pastors we are led to believe that the Feasts of YHWH (Lev. 23:4) are really the “feasts of the JEWS” and thus we completely dismiss them. In so doing, we’ve exchanged the truth for a lie.

Mark 7:9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.

We fight tooth and nail to defend Nimrod’s days, justifying it with lame excuses about “God knows my heart” while simultaneously dissing what GOD HIMSELF told us to do:

  1. He gave us the holidays HE wants us to celebrate and said that they would be perpetual, eternal, forever – NOT that Christ would do away with them [Leviticus 23].
  2. Learn not the way of the heathen [Jeremiah 10].
  3. Do NOT worship YHWH the SAME WAY the false gods were worshiped [Deuteronomy 12].
  4. If we really do love God, then we are to show our love for Him through obeying His commandments [1 John 5] not making up excuses to do things our way instead.

In Amos, the Israelites had polluted the true feasts with paganism. That is why YHWH expressed disdain for them. He didn’t even like their SONGS! So, how do you think He feels today, when we are singing “Oh Little Town of Bethlehem” and other “birthday songs” to/about Jesus Christ, on the day the ANTI-Christ was born??

We are created in His image and LIKENESS. So, let’s make this simple: Start celebrating your spouse’s birthday on the day one of your ex’s were born. Throw a big party and invite your spouse to it. Sing “Happy Birthday” and exchange gifts on that day, while completely ignoring the ACTUAL day your husband/wife was born. You can even say, “Oh honey. Relax. You know my heart. I love you.” Let me know how that turns out. No sane human would do such a thing!

Now imagine we live under the rule of an extremely powerful king, like in ancient times. Imagine if all the people KNOWINGLY decided to repeatedly “honor” that good king by celebrating his birthday on the day his arch-enemy, a rival tyrant king was born. How would that king react? What do you think he would do to those people? If it is easy for us to understand that sort of thing as it pertains to flawed, inferior, earthly kings, why in the world would we treat the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Master and Creator of the Universe in such a manner??

The bottom line:

You KNOW Christ was NOT born on December 25th. It takes less than a half-hour of research to discover where all of the rituals we practice originated. Therefore, it is absolutely impossible to worship our King in spirit AND in TRUTH [John 4:24] on December 25th. Yes, we can and should worship Him EVERY day, but let’s dispense with the pretense – those who do so on December 25th do so with the INTENT of celebrating His birth. The pictures, cards, banners, manger scenes, Christmas plays and all of that betray this intent in no uncertain terms. Thus, you are doing EXACTLY what the Israelites did in Exodus 32 and Amos 5. There is absolutely no difference. You are insulting God and defending traditions associated with false gods in His name. Meanwhile, very few are contending for truth and for the celebration of the TRUE holidays YHWH Himself established for us to understand His Son. This is wrong. Attack me if you must. But I’m not the one who will judge this matter. No one will ever have to answer to me about any of these things in eternity. But when the question is asked by YHWH, “I gave you the appointed times for my Son’s birth, death, resurrection and return. I told you to celebrate them every year so that you could understand Him better. Why then did you disregard them and instead contend for the lie of false gods and do so in My Name?” what is your excuse going to be?
