The Bible Condemns Christmas, 12/22/16

The Word of God is the final authority on any matter.  So let's see what it has to say about Christmas. In short, it says that Christmas Is Occult. Most in the western world practice Christmas and some claim that they do it with the belief that Jesus was born then. If we understand what is written in its cultural context, the bible makes it clear that Jesus was not born in Winter but in Spring:

Luke 2:8 New King James Version (NKJV)
8 Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night.

So how does this prove Jesus was born in Spring? Listen and learn.

Israel is in the northern hemisphere and so it gets cold there in December when Christmas falls. Those who keep sheep keep them in barns or in caves in the winter nights. Not so in the Spring. In the Spring the weather is warm enough to let the sheep stay out all night in the open air. And the ewes give birth to their lambs in the Spring, ONLY IN THE SPRING!! Thus it is in the Spring, and only in the Spring, that the shepherds stay out all night with the sheep watching over the ewes birthing the lambs. So Jesus was born in the Spring and not in the Winter.   And doesn't it make sense that since Jesus came the first time as the Lamb of God that he would be born in the Spring as it is with the lambs in Israel? Of course it does. Thus the claim that Christmas is a celebration of Jesus birth is bogus.

So what is Christmas really? In short it is the ancient pagan practice of occult religion. It is the occult holiday of Yule that is being practiced: observation of Nimrod's birthday. "Christ-mas" means observing a mass for Christ, this it is the pagan celebration that they who hated him succeeded in killing Jesus. The Yule log is burned as a symbol of human sacrifice. And the tree is put up and decorated.

So what does the bible say about this? Now mind you that Nimrod and
Babylon pre-date the time of the prophets. So shouldn't we expect to see the prophets condemning these ancient pagan practices that were already there when they came along? Yes, we should, and Jeremiah does it:

Jeremiah 10:1-5 New King James Version (NKJV)
Idols and the True God

10 Hear the word which the Lord speaks to you, O house of Israel.

2 Thus says the Lord:

“Do not learn the way of the Gentiles;
Do not be dismayed at the signs of heaven,
For the Gentiles are dismayed at them.
For the customs of the peoples are futile;
For one cuts a tree from the forest,
The work of the hands of the workman, with the ax.
They decorate it with silver and gold;
They fasten it with nails and hammers
So that it will not topple.
They are upright, like a palm tree,
And they cannot speak;
They must be carried,
Because they cannot go by themselves.
Do not be afraid of them,
For they cannot do evil,
Nor can they do any good.”

This passage is a clear condemnation of the practice of putting up a tree and decorating it as we all know is done in Christmas.  Yes, hundreds of years before Jesus was born we see that God condemned Christmas, and so should we.

So do not let the pagan traditions of western culture deceive you into practicing occult ways in the name of the birth of Jesus. The claim that Jesus was born on December 25 was first done to associate his birth with the occult practice of the pagan holiday of Yule and also the demonic worship surrounding the winter solstice on December 21.  The goal was to weaken and infiltrate the church with pagan practice.  Christians should eschew this. We can practice the Hebrew holiday of Chanukah at the same time of year if we want or celebrate Jesus birthday in the Spring if we want. But as we see from scripture Christmas is totally occult and christians need to know that we cannot sanctify an occult holiday by pretending that Jesus was born at a time when we he was not. We need to repent for the practice of Christmas entirely.  The world's best earthquake forecaster, Dutch Sinse, reveals that earthquakes increase around Christmas. Since quakes are judgments from God I believe this shows that God is judging the wicked pagan practice of Christmas on a worldwide scale.  Only repentance for the practice of Christmas will stop the Christmas quakes and any other judgments that God is issuing against this wicked pagan holiday.

Please watch these excellent videos from Jonathan Cahn and Stephen Dollins  and Dutch Sinse on these subjects.
