Daily Devotional, Year 3 – July 12

.

.

.

.

Come Out of Her, My People! Part 46: “How The Grinch Invented Christmas!”

To read Part 1, click here… “May 12th (Come Out of Her, My People?)”

.

.

.

.

 “I know that, whatsoever God does,

it shall be for ever:

nothing can be put to it,

nor any thing taken from it:

and God does it,

that men should fear before Him.”

Ecclesiastes 3:14

.

.

.

 “(God) Give us help from trouble:

for vain is the help of man.”

Psalm 60:11

 

.

.

.

A certain radio personality was asked if Christians should celebrate Christmas, since there is no biblical injunction to do so.

.

And in response, this erring individual gave a scathing and mocking rebuke against anyone who should attempt to correct other Christians regarding that man-made yearly holiday.

.

And the radio personality went on to tell of the many benefits connected with the celebration of that holiday.

NOT TO ADD TO GOD’S FINISHED WORKS!

.

But what that radio personality is forgetting, is that a huge part of obedience to God, is to live by every Word of God, but to also keep from going beyond God’s infallible Word.

.

Listen again to our two signature Bible verses at the top of this page… “I know that, whatsoever God does, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God does it, that men should fear before Him….(God) Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.”

Ecclesiastes 3:14 & Psalm 60:11

.

These two above verses together present a huge truth, which a Christian must not overlook, if he or she is ever going to come completely out of Babylon!

.

We must understand that any attempt to help God out is ultimately going to, not only fail, but actually increase the wickedness in this, the Devil’s world!

LOTS OF GOOD TIMES

Now, for those who have families, this holiday is a great opportunity for loved ones to gather together to celebrate and give gifts to one-other.

.

It is a time for lots of fun things to do: parties, singing traditional carols, gift-giving, etc…

SATAN: “THE GOD OF THIS WORLD”

 

.

But we must not forget that this world is ruled over by “the god of this world”, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGLucifer, now called, “Satan”. (see 2nd Corinthians 4:4)

.

And he is no dummy (as many erroneously suppose)! He well understands that it’s futile to add anything to God’s finished works!

.

No true good can ever come from mere human effort! No actual benefit can ever be achieved by our vain attempts to, “help God out”!

MAN’S WORKS ARE VAIN, EVEN WICKED!

.

Listen again to our two signature Bible verses at the top of this page… “I know that, whatsoever God does, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God does it, that men should fear before Him.”…”(God) Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.” Ecclesiastes 3:14 & Psalm 60:11

.

Nothing, but nothing can be added to what God has done! Mankind can do absolutely nothing of any value to assist God’s Salvation plan!

MANKIND’S BEST STATE: VANITY!

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:People_on_Times_Square.jpgNow listen to God’s assessment of mankind, “…verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah.” Psalm 39:5

.

And so, this verse reveals that man’s BEST STATE is vanity (worthless).

.

But it only goes downhill from there!

.

Yes, we are informed in 1st John 5:19…“And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.”

.

Here is where mankind’s best state of vanity (worthlessness) descends into complete and utter condition of wickedness!

BRINGS IN LOST SHEEP?

Oh yes, the advocates for this non-biblical, “Holy Day”, are quick to defend it by saying, “Christmas is a great advertisement for Jesus and His Gospel, as the entire world hears about Jesus during each month of December!”

.

And they continue, “And Christmas is a great way to get some unbelievers and former, backslidden church-members to return once again to church during that holiday time!”

ONLY INCREASES CHURCH APOSTASY?

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:MarianartintheCatholicChurchjf0181_08.JPG

But these unbiblical holidays, along with various other compromising additions to the purity of the Gospel have been responsible for many false brethren being brought into the Church, over the decades.

.

Yes, by compromising the purity of the Gospel, Satan has paved the way for many Antichrist deceivers to enter into the now, “fun” churches, thus plunging Christianity down into further apostasy and ruin!

LONELY TIME FOR MANY!

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Vincent_van_Gogh_-_Old_Man_in_Sorrow_(On_the_Threshold_of_Eternity).jpg

And let’s not forget that besides being a great occasion for families to get together, Christmas is also a sad time for many lonely individuals.

.

To many lonely souls, Christmas is like a giant party that they weren’t invited to!

.

Some even resort to suicide!

.

And even after the Christmas holiday is past, followed by the bleak month of January, often creating such a let-down for many persons, sometimes even resulting in suicides!

.

And with all the expense of that holiday, many families suffer financial troubles as a result!

.

And this also is a contributing factor to many suicides, some months later, as the financial situation keeps worsening.

.

And with all the drunkenness, office parties, spousal arguments, and even some adulterous affairs, divorces occur as a result!

BINDS HEARTS TO THE WORLD!

.

And let’s not forget how this incredible time of festive lights, gay music, lots of gifts, lots of fun, etc., only causes the hearts of our children to become even further entwined to this, the Devil’s selfish world!

REVELATION 12 WOMAN CONSTELLATION

.

.

This page is about the Big Dipper, also called the Great Bear constellation (Ursa Major ). However, the ancient pagan cultures did not see this constellation as God intended it to be seen. It is actually a headless woman in childbirth.  This is seen in springtime. It is seen in the northern skies. 

.

But as the seasons progress, this travailing woman flips upside down, now appearing as a woman with upraised arms like eagle wings who is running (eventually flying, as shown in sketch on right) into the wilderness (westward). The single star representing her birth-child (Christ) now becomes her head (“Christ is the head of the church.” Ephesians 5:23

.

.

The 7 Stars (Big Dipper) is easy to see with its very bright 7 stars. But the Revelation 12 Woman (Ursa Major) must be seen on a dark starry night, away from city lights. 

.

These are star charts from Wikipedia, with sketches of the Woman added.
