The idea of Christmas has always been confusing. A gazillion dollar industry that spans worldwide. On the one hand, you remember the birth of Christ as our savior. Then, this immortalized infant in a manger is enshrouded with all these extra fallacies; Santa Claus, (A grown man with full powers) the snowman, the Christmas trees (decorated with bulbs and other trinkets, the presents, and all the propaganda that goes with it. Exodus 32, when Moses had not returned from the mountaintop; the people were running amuck with sin. Ultimately creating a golden calf to be worshiped And in Matthew 21:12, Yahusha (Not Jesus) entered the Temple and began to drive out all the people buying and selling animals for sacrifice. He knocked over the tables of the money changers and the chairs of those selling doves. Haven’t we done the same thing with Christmas ? Aren’t Christmas trees too similar to the golden calf? Jonah 2:8 (KJV) “Those that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy. Santa, ultimately, a false god? Santa and Satan are synonymous. How uncanny it is that Yahusha (Not Jesus) is forever bound as an infant while Santa is a grown, fictitious man that has all the power at Christmas So, in my curiosity, I was scanning through pictures that were being posted on Facebook. And I came across a picture of a baby Yahusha, (Not Jesus) in a manger and a lamb was standing alongside. So I had to ask:
Me: May I ask why Yahusha, (Not Jesus) is immortalized as a infant? He’s grown and was an adult when he was crucified. When birthdays are celebrated, also Pagan, are baby pictures sought out and displayed? Of course not. Celebrations occur in the present tense. I just find this entire concept preposterous. Yahusha, (Not Jesus) did not want his birthday celebrated. It’s Pagan. He would never do anything that would be offensive to His Father in Heaven. If he did, wouldn’t his true birthday be noted in the scriptures? I’m truly scratching my head. If I’m wrong, please feel free to correct me.
Her: JESUS BIRTH IS CELEBRATED BECAUSE HE WAS BORN OF A VIRGIN AND THE HOLY GHOST RESTED ON HER SO HE WAS CONCEIVED WITHOUT SIN. ALL OTHERS DESCENDED FROM ADAM AND HE WAS A SINNER. CHRIST WAS NOT.HE WAS THE HOLY SON OF GOD. HE DID NOT COME FROM A EARTHLY FATHER EITHER. HE CAME FROM GOD. WE REMEMBER HIM AS A BABY BECAUSE IT WAS JESUS WHO WAS, GOD WITH US, OR EMMANUEL THE SAVIOR MANY SIGNS CONFIRMED HIS BIRTH. THE SHEPHERDS THE STAR, and THE WISE MEN. SO WE CELEBRATE HIS BIRTH. AS A BABY, when HE BECAME FLESH SO WE COULD BE REDEEMED BY KNOWING GOD IN THE PERSON OF HIS SON.THE LITTLE LORD JESUS.
Me: That’s not answering my question…you are only telling me the theory behind Christmas. I need to know why an infant has to be immortalized forever on December 25th. A baby in a manger….Yahusha, (Not Jesus) was grown when he died, rose and ascended to heaven. If Yahusha, (Not Jesus) wanted his birthday immortalized; whereby he would be stuck in a manger forever as an infant, would not the true date be listed in the scriptures? And…if I recall correctly, Yahusha, (Not Jesus) commanded us to remember the Passover always…Not the resurrection aka Easter, nor his birth aka Christmas, (Not the true birth date). We are supposed to remember and observe those Set Apart days. I’m sorry, but I need to follow the scriptures closely to save my soul…
And, if the whole holiday idea did revolved around baby Yahusha, (Not Jesus)…where did Santa the tree with bulbs, the snowman and all the other garbage come from? I only need scriptural answers. Not suppositions or your opinion. I want the TRUTH!!!!!!!!
The wise men recognized Yahusha, (Not Jesus) as the Messiah while he was still a child, and traveled thousands of miles to worship him. Not by car…they walked and had camels and donkeys. They doggedly followed a star which led them to Yahusha, (Not Jesus). By the time they met Yahusha, (Not Jesus), he was in a house and a small child, not an infant, implying they arrived a year or more after his birth. Their gifts symbolize the Messiah’s identity and mission: gold for a king, incense for an Elohim, and myrrh, used to anoint the dead. YAHUAH honored the wise men by warning them in a dream to go home by another route and not to report back to King Herod.
By reading this, we know that this holiday is not true doctrine. First, Yahusha (Not Jesus) was born and placed in a manger. After which, the story gets scrambled. I see pictures of baby Yahusha (Not Jesus) in a manger, surrounded by the three wise men However, since the the wise men (No number given in Matthew 2:9-11) walked, using camels and donkeys, it was not possible for the these wise men to see Yahusha (Not Jesus) when he was born. In fact, it took approximately 1 year for the wise men to get to the inn. By then, Yahusha (Not Jesus) was indoors and no longer an infant. Secondly and most importantly, there was no Santa Claus, no Christmas trees, no snowman and no mad rush to buy presents.
Matthew 16:24. Then Yahusha, (Not Jesus) said to his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross (Spiritually)and follow me. Only thing is, how could this be accomplished, accurately? I don’t know about you…but I will not be following an infant trapped in a manger. That’s for sure. If Yahusha, (Not Jesus) were to return today, not many would recognize him. Non believers and delusional pagan followers currently, have visions of a infant, in their heads. A baby that’s trapped in a manger, forever.They would certainly fall prey to the false Messiah that comes before the Real Messiah. Revelation 19:11-16. People will not be paying rent and or mortgages to buy presents for a pagan holiday that is not scripture based and not worth the energy it generates. Then sadly, when January comes, and they return to their normal schedules, many will be evicted and set out on the streets because they chose to follow a fruitless path. What does YAHUAH say about this “fruitless” path?
Jeremiah 10:1-5 (KJV):
Jeremiah 10:1 Hear ye the word which YAHUAH speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:
Jeremiah 10:2 Thus saith YAHUAH, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
Jeremiah 10:3 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.
Jeremiah 10:4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
Jeremiah 10:5 They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.
Jeremiah 2:5 (KJV) Thus saith YAHUAH, What iniquity have your fathers found in me, that they are gone far from me, and have walked after vanity, and are become vain?
1 Peter 4:3 (KJV) :
1Peter 4:3 For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:
1 John 5:21 (KJV) Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
Romans 8:18-21 (KJV)
Romans 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the light which shall be revealed in us.
Romans 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of Elohim.
Romans 8:20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
Romans 8:21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of YAHUAH.
Our Heavenly father eagerly awaits in expectation of us to liberate ourselves from bondage and ultimate decay! Remove the blinders and stop following pagan rituals and foolish idols. The Scriptures warns us in Isaiah 55:6 to “Seek ye YAHUAH while He may be found.” I pray that you all open your eyes and follow the Ruach, that already resides in each of you. I will leave you with the full Isaiah 55:6 scripture. May YAHUAH Bless You with Insight!
Isaiah 55:6, Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to YAHUAH, to serve him, and to love the name of YAHUAH, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant;
