Merry Christ-Mas

CokeXmas

Christmas is a holiday shared and celebrated by many religions. It is a day that has an effect on the entire world. To many people, it is a favorite time of the year involving gift giving, parties and feasting. Christmas is a holiday that unifies almost all of professed believers. The spirit of Christmas causes people to decorate their homes and churches, cut down trees and bring them into their homes, decking them with silver and gold. In the light of that tree, families make merry and give gifts one to another.

When the sun goes down on December 24th, and darkness covers the land, families and churches prepare for participation in customs such as burning the Yule log, singing around the decorated tree, kissing under the mistletoe and holly, and attending a late night service or midnight mass.

What is the meaning of Christmas? Where did the customs and traditions originate? You, as a believer, would want to worship the Almighty in Spirit and in truth, discerning good from evil.

The truth is that all of the customs of Christmas pre-date the birth of Messiah, and a study of this would reveal that Christmas in our day is a collection of traditions and practices taken from many cultures and nations.

The date of December 25th comes from Rome and was a celebration of the Italic god, Saturn, and the rebirth of the sun god. This was done long before the birth of Messiah. It was noted by the pre-“Christian” Romans and other pagans, that daylight began to increase after December 22nd, when they assumed that the sun god died. These ancients believed that the sun god rose from the dead three days later as the new-born and venerable sun. Thus, they figured that to be the reason for increasing daylight. This was a cause for much wild excitement and celebration. Gift giving and merriment filled the temples of ancient Rome , as sacred priests of Saturn, called endrophori, carried wreaths of evergreen boughs in procession.

In Germany , the evergreen tree was used in worship and celebration of the yule god, also in observance of the resurrected sun god. The evergreen tree was a symbol of the essence of life and was regarded as a phallic symbol in fertility worship.

Witches and other pagans regarded the red holly as a symbol of the menstrual blood of the queen of heaven, also known as Diana. The holly wood was used by witches to make wands. The white berries of mistletoe were believed by pagans to represent droplets of the semen of the sun god. Both holly and mistletoe were hung in doorways of temples and homes to invoke powers of fertility in those who stood beneath and kissed, causing the spirits of the god and goddess to enter them. These customs transcended the borders of Rome and Germany to the far reaches of the known world.

The question now arises: How did all of these customs find their way into the contemporary body of believers, ranging from Catholicism to Protestantism to fundamentalist churches?

The word “Christmas” itself reveals who married paganism to the assembly of believers. The word “Christmas” is a combination of the words “Christ” and “Mass”. The word “Mass” means to depart or death and was coined originally by the Roman Catholic Church, and belongs exclusively to the Church of Rome. The ritual of the Mass involves the death of “Christ”, and the distribution of the “Host”, a word taken from the Latin word “hostiall” meaning victim! In short, Christmas is strictly a Roman Catholic word.

Interestingly, our Savior was never called Christ in His native language. He was called Mashiach (Messiah) which means Anointed One. Christos, which means “anointed” in Greek, is the name of a pagan deity. The first letter of Christos is the chi (X): cristz . The word “Christmas” literally means “anointed-depart” and is seen abbreviated in “X-mas”. The “X” which stands for Christos, is also the representation of the cross of Tammuz. (You’ve heard of hot cross buns? There was an “X” on the top of them. These were baked for this pagan deity.)

A simple study of the tactics of the Romish Church reveals that in every case, the church absorbed the customs, traditions and general paganism of every tribe, culture and nation in their efforts to increase the number of people under their control. In short, the Romish church told all of these pagan cultures, “Bring your gods, goddesses, rituals and rites, and we will assign righteous sounding titles and names to them.”

When Martin Luther started the reformation on October 31st, 1517 , and other reformers followed his lead, all of them took with them the paganism that was so firmly embedded in Rome. These reformers left Christmas intact.

In England, as the authorized Scriptures became available to the common people by the decree of King James the II in 1611, people began to discover the pagan roots of Christmas, which are clearly revealed in Scripture. The Puritans in England , and later in the Massachusetts Colony, outlawed this holiday as witchcraft (few realize it was once illegal to celebrate christmas in America).

Near the end of the nineteenth century, when other Scripture versions began to appear, there was a revival of the celebration of Christmas. We are now seeing ever-increasing celebrating of Christmas or Yule, its true name, as we draw closer to the second coming of our King! Yule-tide is the name of the December 25 th witches sabbat!

In either witchcraft circles or contemporary assemblies of believers, the same things are going on.

Scripture clearly states…

Jeremiah 10:2-4
Thus saith YHWH, Learn not the way of the heathen,
and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven;
for the heathen are dismayed at them.
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 axe.
They deck it with silver and with gold;
they fasten it with nails and with hammers,
that it move not.

What is wrong with Christmas?

1. To say Messiah was born on December 25th is a lie! The righteous neither recorded nor celebrated birthdays. However, December 25 is the birthday of the Babylonian god, Tammuz, one the first “anti-Messiahs.” Tammuz was the “immaculately conceived” son of Semiramus, the self-proclaimed Queen of Heaven. After Nimrod died, his wife, Semiramis, fooled around and found herself with child. Not willing to face having a child out of wedlock (or was it something more sinister) she devised a plan where Nimrod, who upon death was said to have ascended to the sun, becoming the sun god. It was he who had impregnated her with the rays of the sun. The resulting child, Tammuz, was later gored to death by a wild boar (how poetic), and was said to have been resurrected three days later. His symbol after this alleged event was the evergreen, symbolic of everlasting life.

2. The ritual/ceremonial use of trees, wreaths, holly, mistletoe and the like are strictly forbidden as pagan and heathen! To say that these are just symbols or that they can be made pure or sanitized is a lie! They are symbols alright; symbols of paganism that has crept into the ranks of believers.

3. The Son of man never spoke of commemorating His birth but rather commanded us to remember the sacrifice of His suffering and death, which purchased our salvation. Messiah called this memorial Passover. If believers are going to be persecuted or disfellowshipped for keeping the Feasts that YHWH sanctioned in Scripture, then the first to be written off the books should be those who honor and observe the festivals of Satan.

Think about it! How will you answer in judgment when faced with “learn not the way of the heathen”? Can we worship and honor YHWH by involving ourselves with customs and traditions which He has forbidden as idolatry? Can we convince the Mighty One of Israel to somehow “sanitize” these customs and the whole pretense and lie of Christmas so we can enjoy ourselves? Can we obey through disobedience?

So what is right about Christmas? Nothing!

1 Corinthians 10:21
Ye cannot drink the cup of YHWH, and the cup of devils:
ye cannot be partakers of YHWH’s table, and of the table of devils.

The True Meaning of Christ-Mass

They tell us that it is the season to be jolly. It is a time of ornaments, red and green decorations, silver bells, holly, mistletoe and colored lights. It is also a time of department store Santa’s calling out their universal mantra, “Ho ho ho, Merry Christmas.” Nearly all of the realm of so-called “Christianity” join in and repeat this same greeting, “Merry Christmas!”

Although we hear these words constantly as they resonate millions of times throughout the land, almost nobody understands what they are really saying. It is the purpose of this tract to take the words, “Merry Christmas” and examine the true meaning and essence of those words.

A true believer would want to examine everything they say, because Messiah said in Matthew 12:36-37, “But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.” We will now set aside all of the customs, glitter and traditions of Christmas, which were taken from pagan witchcraft and popularized by the Roman Catholic Church, and we will focus on the true meaning of the words, “Merry Christmas!”

The word “Merry” is simple to define. It unquestionably means to be happy, joyful and light-hearted. The word “merry” fits into the ambiance of laughter and frivolity. This word “merry” by itself is innocent and innocuous enough, but as we will now see, it becomes heinously blasphemous when used with the word “Christmas.”

Here let it be noted that most people think that the word, “Christmas” means “the birth of Christ.” By definition, it means “death of Christ”, and I will prove it by using the World Book Encyclopedia, the Catholic Encyclopedia, and a book entitled, The Mass in Slow Motion.

If you are an honest, sincere and discerning believer, please read on; if not, you might as well stop right here. The World Book Encyclopedia defines “Christmas” as follows: “The word Christmas comes from ‘Cristes Maesse’, an early English phrase that means “Mass of Christ.” It is interesting to note that the word “Mass”, as used by the Roman Catholics, has traditionally been rejected by the so-called Protestants, such as Lutherans, Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, Pentecostals, and so on. The word “Mass” is strictly a Catholic word and thus, so is “Christ-Mass.”

It would stand to reason, that since all of these denominations love and embrace “Christ-Mass”, that December 25th is the great homecoming day, when all of the Protestants become Catholic for a day. It would seem that all of the so-called “wayward daughters” of the Romish church return to their mother, the scarlet harlot. Thus, all of the so-called Protestant churches could sing to the Pope that popular song “I’ll be home for Christmas.”

As previously stated, the word “Mass” in religious usage means a “death sacrifice.” The impact of this fact is horrifying and shocking; for when the millions of people are saying, “Merry Christmas”, they are literally saying “Merry death of Christ!” Furthermore, when the fat man in the red suit laughs boisterously and says, “Ho ho ho, Merry Christmas”, he is mocking and laughing at the suffering and bleeding Saviour, who died for our sins. He does this while parents place their little children into his waiting arms to hear his false promises of gifts that he says he will give them. Consider what you are saying when you say “Merry Christmas.”

What is so amusing about our Saviour’s painful death? What is so funny? Why is Santa laughing? Why are you going along with it? Your words do count and Satan knows it. Yes, the word “Mass” does mean “death sacrifice”, and to cement that fact, we will consider the definition of the inventors of the religious application of the word “ Mass”. I am looking at page 537 of the Catholic Encyclopedia, which says, “In the Christian law, the supreme sacrifice is that of the Mass. ” It goes on to say, “The supreme act of worship consists essentially in an offering of a worthy victim to God (H1408 a Babylonian deity of fortune), the offering made by a proper person, as a priest, the destruction of the victim.”

Please note carefully the word, “victim” of the Mass. The Latin word for victim is “Hostia” from which the word “host” is derived. The Mass, by definition of those who coined the word, is a sacrifice involving a victim. There is no other meaning for the word “Mass” or “Christ-Mass.” On page 110 of a book entitled The Mass in Slow Motion, we find the following words: “It is only with the consecration that the sacrifice of the Mass is achieved. I have represented the Mass to you, more than once, as a kind of ritual dance.”

In essence, the Mass is the ceremonial slaying of Messiah over and over again, followed by the eating of His flesh and the drinking of His blood. The Mass is the death sacrifice, and the “Host” is the victim. This is official Roman Catholic doctrine, and “Christmas” is a word that they invented. Again, I ask, what is so merry about the pain, bleeding, suffering and death of our Savior? Satan has done quite a job of getting millions of so-called “Christians” to blaspheme. What a deceiver he is.

Many are confused this time of year due to be raised on traditions. But they should realize some truth about those traditions.

Christmas is not a holiday about Christ, but a Pagan holiday brought over to convert Pagans to Christianity. Now you know the true meaning of the word “Christmas” or Mass of Christ. For the sake of your soul and those of your family, flee from idolatry!

The bible is very clear that we are not to bring over traditions from others. For they are not things for us. Remember, we were brought out to get away from such practices.

2Thessalonians 3:
Now we command you, brethren,
in the name of our Master YHWH the Messiah,
that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly,
and not after the tradition which he received of us.

Colossians 2:8
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 the Messiah.blankbox

Did you know Christmas use to be illegal in America?
Do you plan on participating in this false holiday this year?

Amos 5:21
I hate, I despise your feast days,
and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies.

Jeremiah 10:2-4
Thus saith YHWH,
Learn not the way of the heathen,
and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven;
for the heathen are dismayed at them.
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 axe.
They deck it with silver and with gold;
they fasten it with nails and with hammers,
that it move not.
