In Part II we will discover that December 25th was actually the birthday of many pagan gods throughout the centuries beginning with Nimrod. Also we’ll see how the first time December 25th was ever celebrated as ‘Christmas’ and the birth of Messiah was in the 4th century when Constantine simply declared it be so. When he merged the already pagan celebration “Saturnalia” (celebration of other gods, Saturn, the sun/Nimrod, etc) with so called “Christianity”.
About 2,200 years before the birth of Messiah, Noah’s great grandson, Nimrod along with his wife Semiramis, built the Tower of Babel (Genesis 10:10, 11:9) and the Babylonian Empire which combined their pagan religion with their form of government. They worshiped the stars, sun, and the moon, and they sacrificed their babies to Moloch (satan). Nimrod in an attempt to become “God” declared himself the god of the sun and Semiramis was the goddess of the moon (also known as the “Queen of Heaven”) and the people of the Babylonian Empire worshiped them as such. The story goes that Noah’s son Shem was so angry about this, that he had Nimrod killed and his body parts were delivered to different provinces within Babylon as a warning to those who worshiped Moloch.

I would just like to reiterate again, these posts are very brief summaries of the pagan roots of Christmas. I encourage you to watch the videos provided in these posts and visit the links as well. If you really desire to know the truth about the holiday we know as Christmas you will dig and study for yourself. The information contained in these posts are simply a starting point for your research. I pray you continue your study and allow the Holy Spirit to grant sight to your eyes concerning these truths.
So, how does the Elohim (God) of the universe, Creator of all feel about using pagan and man ways to worship Him and His Son, Messiah (that is what Christmas is all about right?)
In Deuteronomy 12, Elohim is warning His people about false gods.
…take heed to yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed from before you, and that you do not inquire after their gods, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their gods? I also will do likewise.’ You shall not worship the LORD your God in that way; for every abomination to the LORD which He hates they have done to their gods for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods”
Elohim cast the Canaanites out of the Promised Land because of their pagan idolatrous practices. They worshiped Ba’al, or Nimrod, Tammuz, the sun god, the pagan Messiah, the god of wine and revelry. They worshiped the evergreen tree, and used it as a symbol of their god. They observed December 25, in worship of the waning sun, and their sun-god divinity. This whole religious system stemmed from ancient Babylon, the root of all heresy and apostasy. Continue reading
This post will consist of 2 parts. Part 2 coming soon!
To all of my Essential oil loving friends (I am one too). I encourage you to really look into the companies that you promote, support and have become aligned with as a distributor. The one I am touching on in this post specifically is Young Living, simply because it is the company I have done the most research on.
First, let me say up front that I personally use Essential oils and I believe that the oils in and of themselves are NOT a bad thing and I believe the plants/herbs/flowers they are extracted from were created by the one true Creator of all things. But as followers of Messiah we MUST use discernment and recognize when elements of other religions/beliefs, in this case New Age/Witchcraft aspects are flowing through the companies and products we sell, support and use. I know one of the biggest things that trips us up is that Young Living claims to be a ‘Christian’ company, but friends I am not sure how one reading the literature and descriptions of the individual oils cannot see the New Age slant coming through. It seems this is becoming even more prevalent as more Christians align themselves with this Multi-Level Marketing Company. Continue reading
* This post is a brief summary on this dangerous deception. Please click the links in red throughout this post and at the end to learn more.
I can remember like it was yesterday, I was in the 6th grade and was terrified to go to sleep. I had seen a movie on TV about the end of the world & the ‘rapture’ and as a child I was so afraid I would get “left behind”. The whole idea of Messiah coming back secretly to gather His church, taking us to Heaven while we watched the utter destruction of the earth and all of those who had not accepted Him below never really sat well with me, BUT….it is what we were taught was Biblical truth. It is what my mom believed and probably her mom and even her mom. The Pre-Tribulation rapture “theory” is what the majority of Christian’s seem to believe is true. Even those who are not believers in Messiah would probably tell you what is predicted to happen based on the popular “Left Behind” series of books and movies. Because we have become so lukewarm and apostasy abounds, even in the “Christian” community we tend not question anything our Pastor teaches us, we don’t study for ourselves. Sure, we may read a few scriptures but do we really dig in and study to show ourselves approved unto The Father? In most cases, I have found that unless I am willing to accept what I believe may be completely false and re-learn what the Bible REALLY has to say, I will continue to live my life in complete deception from the evil one. And let’s face it, that is how most of Christianity lives today. Continue reading
It’s mid Sept and everything is turning up halloween (not worthy of capitalization). As I walk down the aisles at Walmart, my stomach turns as I see the evil masks, the children’s t-shirts displaying witches and goblins. Creepy skulls and skeletons in my face at every turn. Yes, I used to take part as well as my kids just as most of us have at some point. But it has been quite a few years since I was strongly convicted of the SATANIC origins of Halloween and how in honoring God, our family would have no part of it! I know because I was there, as Christian’s we falsely think that if our kids dress up in “good”, “cute”, “nice” or even “Biblical” costumes that we aren’t condoning this evil day that has it’s roots in human sacrifice and satanic rituals. The the following information Continue reading
It has become commonplace to hear the terms “Christian Yoga”, “Holy Yoga” and I have even heard “Yoga for Jesus”. It seems it’s been all the rage for a while now, cool and hip to be a part of a yoga class. Yet, I would venture to say most people, including Christians have some knowledge that yoga is a practice derived from eastern religion. In fact, I’ve heard a lot of believers saying things in defense like“Oh, I am just doing the movements….it’s just stretching. I am not participating in the ‘religious’ aspect.” But can one really separate the two – the physical and spiritual aspects of yoga? Continue reading
