 “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

BINDS HEARTS TO THE WORLD!

.

(CONTINUED FROM JULY 12TH) And let’s not forget how this incredible time of festive lights, fashionable 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!

MANY ATHEISTS CREATED

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Dear_Santa_Claus.jpg.

And also remember that the mythical, “Santa Clause” has created more atheists than perhaps any other invention of Satan, second only to the “Evolution” lie.

.

In other words, once little children realize that Santa is a lie, they also begin to doubt the existence of God! Because they naturally equate Santa with God.

.

Thus, they consciously (or unconsciously) reason with themselves… “If Mom and Dad lied to me about Santa, then they’re probably lying about God too!”

ANGUISH AND HUMILIATION

.

And it must not be forgotten that Christmas is often a sad and even humiliating time for many children (and adults) who got little or nothing in the way of presents, hear their friends brag about their abundant harvest of extravagant presents.  

.

And many poor children are embarrassed to admit to fellow classmates that their only gifts were donations by the kindness of strangers.

.

Quite often, these disparities cause great anguish and shame in the hearts and minds of many children and adults, occasionally leading to a possible suicide in a few instances!

30 DAYS OF JESUS, TOO MUCH FOR MANY!

.

One more reason why Satan loves this holiday, is because by the time ithttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg finally is over with, many people of the world are completely fed up spending over a month listening to Christmas carols! Fed up with blowing their budget on food and gifts! Fed up with preparing complicated parties! And fed up with arguing with their spouse, etc…

.

Therefore, many or perhaps most worldly-minded Christians (and secular persons too) have had enough of hearing about Jesus Christ’s birthday: enough to last them until next December!

.

For the most part, only the most hardy and dedicated Christians are ready for more Jesus after December 25th is over!

CHRISTMAS, ANTITHETICAL TO THE GOSPEL

.

In many respects, this man-contrived holiday is antithetical to the Gospel.

.

For ihttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:%22However_pressing_his_duties_STM2-c_James_Lee_Frazer_always_finds_time_to_read_a_few_chapters_from_his_Bible_each_day._I_-_NARA_-_520675.jpgnstance, Christmas favors the wealthy, who have no trouble affording the many necessary expensive expenditures.

.

On the other hand, the Bible is more acceptable to the poor, who have little to lose by forsaking all to follow Jesus! Money is not needed to serve Christ!

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Munch_Det_Syke_Barn_1896.jpg

Christmas mostly favors the strong and energetic who have no trouble making all the many necessary holiday preparations.

.

The Gospel however, is just as accommodating to the weak and infirm who do not have much energy, and cannot do much physical labor.

.

Christmhttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-081218-M-4507D-001.jpgas is more favorable to those with many friends and large families, who can get together for parties and celebrations.

.

The Gospel however, is more favorable for those who are lonely, who can draw close to Jesus as their only friend!

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Cheers!_(3162940696).jpg

Christmas is very conducive to partying, drinking, smoking, adultery, etc…

.

The Gospel is just the opposite! It encourages temperance, abstinence and marital fidelity. Its joy is not derived from pleasure parties, but from one-on-one communion with God!

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Snap-Bar.jpg

Well, these are just a few examples of how Christmas could never have been the creation of God.

.

It is very antichrist in nature, for these and many more reasons!

BEST OF TIMES, WORST OF TIMES

Well, the defenders of this holiday can no doubt point to the many positive aspects of Christmas.

.

And indeed, there are many acts of love and kindness performed during the holiday.

.

And there are many happy family moments on this holiday.

.

But this does not negate the many other sad, even tragic circumstances which this man-contrived holiday has produced over the years and centuries.

.

Yes, Christmas can be a very joyful time for many.

.

But Christmas can also be a very sorrowful time for others.

“THE GOD OF THIS WORLD”

.

And so, the question to be asked is this: did the Grinch really steal Christmas?

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Paradise_Lost_3.jpg

Naw! The actual, true “Grinch” is none other than Satan. (No, Satan is not actually “The Grinch”)

.

And this Master-Deceiver, Lucifer, has invented this unbiblical holiday, as well as countless other counterfeit Christian look-alike doctrines!

.

And Satan has given us such stories as “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas”, to make us feel too guilty to ever be able to absent ourselves from joining hands with the world and the apostate church for the entire month of December to celebrate this invention of man, with the help of, “the god of this world”, of course!

THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS

.

And don’t forget which earthly organization that Satan worked through to bring us this “Mass” celebration!

.

The “Christ-Mass” comes right out of the same apostate church organization which persecuted Christians for centuries, through imprisonment, torture, burning, etc…

.

And this is the same organization which attempted to obliterate the Bible out of existence!

.

And by our enthusiastic celebration of their creation, “Christmas”, they are thereby flattered, and encouraged!

.

And those who enthusiastically embrace this pagan holiday may be guilty of paying homage to that organization!

.

.

.

DEALING WITH UNSAVED FAMILY

.

Now, having said all this, those Christians who have families, may have to make a huge amount of concessions during this yearly festival.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Johansen_Viggo_-_Radosne_Bo%C5%BCe_Narodzenie.jpg

.

In other words, the best course to pursue is probably to “not rain on other’s parade”.

.

And so, the Christian virtues of godly silence and forbearance, combined with making things as nice as possible for his or her unsaved family members is probably the best way to handle Christmas.

.

But for those families in which both parents are in agreement about this invention of the church-apostate, an effort might be made to keep it as low-profile as possible, in attempt to keep it from getting out of hand.

“COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE!”

.

Well this is one more reason why God considers the church-world to now be Babylon, the spiritual Harlot Church.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpg

.

And the solution to our Babylonian captivity is found only in one direction: “Come out of her My people, lest you partake of her sins, and receive of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4

.

Yes, the time has come for God’s people to make an end-time exodus away from the apostasy which has brought the Christian community down to the brink of Hell.

.

And an important part of coming out of Babylon is to return back to the purity of the Gospel, purging out of our hearts, every non-biblical doctrine and all non-biblical jargon, and every non-biblical ceremony and false holy day!

REVELATION 12 WOMAN CONSTELLATION

star-chart ursa major summerr

.

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).

.star-chart ursa major

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.
