Christmas and Santa Truth Religions of This World Never Teach or Discuss http://godsunknownmessengerr.webs.com/truth-on-christmas-and-santa
Because all religions and all beliefs are ruled by the father of lies; in the same way so is all humanity through psychological mind control; therefore all humanity has been misled to the point where truth is the last any want to hear let alone believe; especially religious people hearing truth not matching the brewed doctrines of man they all do believe or what any earthly mind chooses through freedom of thought.
Now concerning this world with over three billion believers in God and religious services;
"Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. (Ephesians 2:2-3)
“The Eternal leans over from heaven to survey the sons of Adam. ß [Every Individual on this Earth]
No one is missed, and no one can hide.
He searches to see who understands true wisdom,
who desires to know the True God.
They all turn their backs, walking their own roads;
they are rancid, leaving a trail of rotten footsteps behind them;
not one of them does good,
not even one. (Psalms 14:2-3)-(Voice)
Have evangelists, pastors, bishops, priests, ministers, reverends, rabbis, false prophets, false teachers or even the Pope ever taught you the meaning of those words above you just read?
Billions on this earth have just given great honor through association alone whether they are religious or non-religious to one of the most grotesque pagan holidays on this planet which involved [at its beginning] nakedness, sex, gluttony, drunkenness and brutal murder against innocent persons being forced into indulging themselves only to become as a sacrifice towards what Romans believed was destroying the god of misrule.
The Origins of Christmas Customs
A. The Origin of Christmas Tree
Just as early Christians recruited Roman pagans by associating Christmas with the Saturnalia, so too worshippers of the Asheira cult and its offshoots were recruited by the Church sanctioning “Christmas Trees”. Pagans had long worshipped trees in the forest, or brought them into their homes and decorated them, and this observance was adopted and painted with a Christian veneer by the Church.
B. The Origin of Mistletoe
Norse mythology recounts how the god Balder was killed using a mistletoe arrow by his rival god Hoder while fighting for the female Nanna. Druid rituals use mistletoe to poison their human sacrificial victim. The Christian custom of “kissing under the mistletoe” is a later synthesis of the sexual license of Saturnalia with the Druidic sacrificial cult.
C. The Origin of Christmas Presents
In pre-Christian Rome, the emperors compelled their most despised citizens to bring offerings and gifts during the Saturnalia (in December) and Kalends (in January). Later, this ritual expanded to include gift-giving among the general populace. The Catholic Church gave this custom a Christian flavor by re-rooting it in the supposed gift-giving of Saint Nicholas (see below).
D. The Origin of Santa Claus
a. Nicholas was born in Parara, Turkey in 270 CE and later became Bishop of Myra. He died in 345 CE on December 6th. He was only named a saint in the 19th century.
b. Nicholas was among the most senior bishops who convened the Council of Nicaea in 325 CE and created the New Testament. The text they produced portrayed Jews as “the children of the devil” who sentenced Jesus to death.
c. In 1087, a group of sailors who idolized Nicholas moved his bones from Turkey to a sanctuary in Bari, Italy. There Nicholas supplanted a female boon-giving deity called The Grandmother, or Pasqua Epiphania, who used to fill the children's stockings with her gifts. The Grandmother was ousted from her shrine at Bari, which became the center of the Nicholas cult. Members of this group gave each other gifts during a pageant they conducted annually on the anniversary of Nicholas’ death, December 6th.
d. The Nicholas cult spread north until it was adopted by German and Celtic pagans. These groups worshipped a pantheon led by Woden –their chief god and the father of Thor, Balder, and Tiw. Woden had a long, white beard and rode a horse through the heavens one evening each Autumn. When Nicholas merged with Woden, he shed his Mediterranean appearance, grew a beard, mounted a flying horse, rescheduled his flight for December, and donned heavy winter clothing.
e. In a bid for pagan adherents in Northern Europe, the Catholic Church adopted the Nicholas cult and taught that he did (and they should) distribute gifts on December 25th instead of December 6th.
[The Pope knows the origin of Christmas and pagan holidays, yet lies to billions just as all popes before him along with shepherds worldwide which feed their congregations no full truth]. http://ph.news.yahoo.com/pope-ex-pope-pray-together-christmas-meeting-202338489.html
f. In 1809, the novelist Washington Irving (most famous his The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle) wrote a satire of Dutch culture entitled Knickerbocker History. The satire refers several times to the white bearded, flying-horse riding Saint Nicholas using his Dutch name, Santa Claus.
g. Dr. Clement Moore, a professor at Union Seminary, read Knickerbocker History, and in 1822 he published a poem based on the character Santa Claus: “Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in the hope that Saint Nicholas soon would be there…” Moore innovated by portraying a Santa with eight reindeer who descended through chimneys.
h. The Bavarian illustrator Thomas Nast almost completed the modern picture of Santa Claus. From 1862 through 1886, based on Moore’s poem, Nast drew more than 2,200 cartoon images of Santa for Harper’s Weekly. Before Nast, Saint Nicholas had been pictured as everything from a stern looking bishop to a gnome-like figure in a frock. Nast also gave Santa a home at the North Pole, his workshop filled with elves, and his list of the good and bad children of the world. All Santa was missing was his red outfit.
i. In 1931, the Coca Cola Corporation contracted the Swedish commercial artist Haddon Sundblom to create a coke-drinking Santa. Sundblom modeled his Santa on his friend Lou Prentice, chosen for his cheerful, chubby face. The corporation insisted that Santa’s fur-trimmed suit be bright, Coca Cola red. And Santa was born – a blend of Christian crusader, pagan god, and commercial idol.
Because I am out to change no one or argue to make me as one
of many worldwide unable to see their own coming destiny, you can read this
link for yourself and make your own decision. http://www.simpletoremember.com/vitals/Christmas_TheRealStory.htm
After reading about the origin of Christmas, what most all will think or speak are these words – If billions worldwide celebrate Christmas, Easter and other holidays not written in the Bible, how can it be wrong?
My only purpose in life itself is to share truth with all on this planet earth whether or not they listen; and that is because either way all will learn truth, (Isaiah 26:9, 20-21) but sadly, billions must learn the hard way through God’s coming judgments upon a human race who know Him not according to His own words this world of believers fail to believe.
Let’s read again the scripture from above in two more versions because regardless of which Bible you use, they all speak the same truth on some verses even poor translators have not destroyed.
“The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. (KJV)
“The Lord looks down from heaven at us humans
to see if there are any who are wise,
any who worship him.
But they have all gone wrong;
they are all equally bad.
Not one of them does what is right,
not a single one. (GNT)
If you consider yourself to be a true believer in Yahweh – God and Yahshua- Christ, can you take Christ’s own words directed from the Father just as they have been written?
“The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth. Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it. Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. (Psalms 12:6, 18:30, 33:4, 119:140, Proverbs 30:5)
“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. (2 Peter 1:20-21)
Even though every word written in the Bible is truth, all human believers will only believe what they choose while either changing the meaning of words they don’t believe through their own interpretation, or just ignoring a truth they not only refuse to believe, but have no understanding of what’s spoken because they know not the Father in Spirit and Truth.
What about all the believers who honor the Torah?
Torah (/ˈtɔːrə/; Hebrew: תּוֹרָה, "Instruction", "Teaching") is a central concept in the Jewish tradition. It has a range of meanings: it can most specifically mean the first five books of the Tanakh, it can mean this plus the rabbinic commentaries on it, it can mean the continued narrative from Genesis to the end of the Tanakh, it can even mean the totality of Jewish teaching and practice. Common to all these meanings, Torah consists of the foundational narrative of the Jewish people: their call into being by God, their trials and tribulations, and their covenant with their God, which involves following a way of life embodied in a set of religious obligations and civil laws (halakha). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torah
For any true believers being the few not of this world, the answer to the above question lies within these following words.
“And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. (Revelation 12:9)
In this world today filled with innumerable religions, beliefs and traditions – all believe their way is the only right and true way even though the words in Revelation 12:9 speak a truth regarding this entire human race being of this world which none, no, not one believes.
So I, being a person on this earth just as all other human beings, what gives me the right in telling all they have been misled and deceived by the god of this world?
“If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me. (John 15:18-21)-(KJV)
In December 2006 I left America on a one way ticket to the Philippines with very little funds and zero income; and it was all through being spiritually led while becoming a student of God with also seeing this world of religions and pathetic human rule in the spiritual way as He sees; yet when His own words tell all believers pure truth in just how He sees all as disobedient hypocrites with shallow roots on unstable ground and will judge them -- none, no, not one believes truth.
What about those filled with great knowledge of scripture while also having great faith?
“What if I speak in the most elegant languages of people or in the exotic languages of the heavenly messengers, but I live without love? Well then, anything I say is like the clanging of brass or a crashing cymbal. What if I have the gift of prophecy, am blessed with knowledge and insight to all the mysteries, or what if my faith is strong enough to scoop a mountain from its bedrock, yet I live without love? If so, I am nothing. I could give all that I have to feed the poor, I could surrender my body to be burned as a martyr, but if I do not live in love, I gain nothing by my selfless acts. (1 Corinthians 13:1-3)
What about believers living by Yahweh’s commandments being the seventh day Sabbath, His appointed feasts, clean foods, no association with pagan holidays and many other commands traditional religions keep not as if nailed to the cross?
“My children, My time here is brief. You will be searching for Me; and as I told the Jews, “You cannot go where I am going.” So I give you a new command: Love each other deeply and fully. Remember the ways that I have loved you, and demonstrate your love for others in those same ways. (John 13:33-34)
“Do not seek revenge or hold a grudge against any of your people. Instead, love your neighbor as you love yourself, for I am the Eternal One. (Leviticus 19:18)
“Love the Eternal One your God with all your heart and all your soul and all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is nearly as important, Love your neighbor as yourself. (Matthew 22:37-39)
“Blessed are those who consider the helpless.
The Eternal will stay near them, leading them to safety in times of bitter struggle. (Psalms 41:1)
How does our creator see this world of believers who may speak words of love which go no further than their tongue?
“We know that we have crossed the frontier from death to life because we do love our brothers. The man without love for his brothers is living in death already. The man who actively hates his brother is a potential murderer, and you will readily see that the eternal life of God cannot live in the heart of a murderer.
We know and, to some extent realise, the love of God for us because Christ expressed it in laying down his life for us. We must in turn express our love by laying down our lives for those who are our brothers. But as for the well-to-do man who sees his brothers in want but shuts his eyes—and his heart—how could anyone believe that the love of God lives in him? My children, let us not love merely in theory or in words—let us love in sincerity and in practice! (1 John 3:14-18)
“If you ignore the groans of the poor,
one day your own cries for help will go unanswered. (Proverbs 21:13)
“My loved ones, let us devote ourselves to loving one another. Love comes straight from God, and everyone who loves is born of God and truly knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. (1 John 4:7-8)
“Above everything, love one another earnestly, because love covers over many sins. (1 Peter 4:8)
"So be warned, my child, of anything else that might be said! There is no end to writing books, and excessive study only exhausts the body. And, when all is said and done, here is the last word: worship in reverence the one True God, and keep His commands, for this is what God expects of every person. For God will judge every action—including everything done in secret—whether it be good or evil. (Ecclesiastes 12:12-14)
Can and do you truly feel with genuine understanding the value of having love for others according to the will of our creator? Do you believe THE WORD or do you believe what humans teach with your human spirit being your psychological guide controlled by the father of lies?
"See, I come quickly! I carry my reward with me, and repay every man according to his deeds. I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last, the Beginning and the End. Happy are those who wash their robes, for they have the right to the tree of life and the freedom of the gates of the city. Shut out from the city shall be the depraved, the sorcerers, the impure, the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices a lie! (Revelation 22:12-15)
“God has shown us these profound and startling realities through His Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep mysteries of God. Who can see into a man’s heart and know his thoughts? Only the spirit that dwells within the man. In the same way, the thoughts of God are known only by His Spirit. You must know that we have not received the spirit of this rebellious and broken world but the Spirit that comes from God, so that we may experience and comprehend the gifts that come from God. We do not speak of these gifts of God in words shaped by human wisdom; we speak in words crafted by the Spirit because our collective judgment on spiritual matters is accessible to those who have the Spirit. But a person who denies spiritual realities will not accept the things that come through the Spirit of God; they all sound like foolishness to him. He is incapable of grasping them because they are disseminated, discerned, and valued by the Spirit. (1 Corinthians 2:10-14)
When we as individuals being believers in God the Father and Jesus Christ give praise, song, prayer, study, fellowship, fasting and even more; if we show not love for others as commanded, we know not God our Father -- so speak the words of Christ this world of believers completely fail to believe through their actions of murder upon others while also not living by the words of Yahshua [Christ) as written in Deuteronomy 8:3, Matthew 4:4 and Luke 4:4; therefore do not prove all things as written in 1 Thessalonians 5:21 – because if believers actually did as Yahweh directs all believers, there would be no pagan holidays honored by billions within a corrupt world rapidly approaching the worst times of trouble which have ever before been on this planet while only getting worse and worse reaching into darkness blacker than black while falling into hidden pits deeper than deep with no escape from suffering so intense within mind and body – there are no words to describe beyond God's deep truth none want to hear or believe.
Through these past seven years my teaching has taught me to
look only to God just as my Head Jesus Christ; because He knew that He could do
nothing by himself while leaving all believers an example to follow; and what all believers worldwide have been showing is just how cold and selfish their hearts truly are through uncountable ways in every belief on this earth.
“Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him. (John 8:28-29)
“For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: (1 Peter 2:21)
Another unwritten day believers worldwide honor is New Year's Day which is observed on January 1, the first day of the year on the modern Gregorian calendar as well as the Julian calendar used in the Roman Empire since 45 BC. Romans originally dedicated New Year's Day to Janus, the god of gates, doors, and beginnings for whom the first month of the year (January) is named. Later, as a date in the Gregorian calendar of Christendom, New Year's Day liturgically marked the Feast of the Circumcision of Christ, and is still observed as such in the Anglican Church and Lutheran Church. In present day, with most countries now using the Gregorian calendar as their de facto calendar, New Year's Day is probably the world's most celebrated public holiday, often observed with fireworks at the stroke of midnight as the new year starts in each time zone. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Year%27s_Day
