The Real Meaning Behind Christmas
December 26, 2009 by david1057
We all know that pagans, witches, seculars, and Satanist all celebrate Christmas. They’ve been doing so for many years, way before the birth of Christ. We can see on Jeremiah 10:3 that this custom was practiced during Jeremiah’s times throughout the Old Testament, way before the birth of Christ. Jeremiah 10:3 describes in detail the custom of the so called “Christmas tree.
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. (Jeremiah 10:3 KJV)
Now, history tells us that immediately after the death of Christ, the Roman Empire was seeking to persecute and kill all of the believers of the Lord Jesus Christ. They were unsuccessful in doing so, because this was creating a stronger credibility among the non-believers; as they saw these Christians willingly give their lives for the sake of Christ. Because of this, Christians continued to multiply with no end to it.
We know as Christians that Satan is in control of this earth, and uses his people to accomplish his evil deeds and desires. Whether it would be through direct satanic pacts, sinful behavior, or plain ignorance. A person, who is not under the blood covenant of Christ, will fall under Satan’s lies, confusions, and ultimately his control.
Having said that, the Roman Empire, frustrated by their fail efforts to make Christianity disappear, is compelled to seek another method of its destruction. The plan was to mislead Christianity into practicing paganism and other practices that are detestable to God. Satan understands that a body can be killed, but the soul goes to the Lord God, if that person is saved under the blood covenant of the Lord Jesus Christ.
So what a better way to destroy Christianity by nothing more than misleading them into spiritual destruction?
This is how the Roman Catholic Church was born and the purpose of its existence. Under a Christian veneer they could now operate. They cannot only mislead the poor, the meek, the God seeking individuals, but now they can also perpetrate all sorts of atrocities, & wickedness, all in the name of “Christianity”.
Satan now can be as wicked as he wants to be, wearing a Christian mask, turning off people from receiving the true gospel, because non believers see them as Christians who are wicked, and they want no part in Christianity, thinking that Catholicism is in fact Christian.
The Catholic Church was also responsible for combining Christian elements with pagan ones, something that is strictly prohibited by God in the bible.
A lot of people believe that Christmas is a godly holiday, but the fact is that it’s not.
For more on the origins of Christmas, click Photo:
Jesus commanded us to remember his death and resurrection, and never instructed us to remember, keep, or celebrate his birthday.
Now, remember; pagans, witches, seculars, and Satanist all celebrate Christmas.
Why would they celebrate someone who they completely oppose?
That’s a good question, here’s the truth:
The Original celebration is called “Saturnalia” in which they create a feast to Sam Hein (the god of the dead). But the new name of “Christmas” sits real well with them too, because the undiscerning Christian does not know the roots & history of Christmas, or the true meaning of what the word means.
The term “Mass” is derived from the Late Latin word missa (dismissal), a word used in the concluding formula of Mass in Latin: “Ite, missa est“ (“Go; it is the dismissal”)
What they in fact are celebrating is the dismissal of Christ, in other words, (his death).
This is why they are so merry and exchange gifts with one another.
Notice an interesting parallel found in the book of revelation as the two witnesses from God, get killed.
7And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
8And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
9And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
10And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. (Revelation 11:7-10)
As we can see, this is Satan’s way of celebrating the death of something he considers an obstacle. You may say, yes but I celebrate the birth of Jesus regardless of what they celebrate.
I say to you, did Jesus ask us to keep and celebrate his birthday? And if still decide to celebrate his birthday; does it have to be in the company of a group of people who hate the God you love?
2 Corinthians 6:14 says:
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
To conclude, by participating, you are participating in the commercialization of this wicked helliday.
Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils. (1 Corinthians 10:21)
The decision is ultimately yours, but the truth in deed shall set you free!

Israel threatens another large scale slaughter in Gaza
Wed, 23 Dec 2009 10:55:35 GMT source: PressTV
Israel has threatened another massive war against the Gaza Strip as the impoverished enclave continues to suffer in the aftermath of the devastating January offensive.
Israeli planes have been dropping thousands of leaflets across Gaza, warning Palestinians against cooperating with the resistance fighters based in the coastal sliver.
The leaflets also threaten Gazans with a new attack just ahead of the first anniversary of Israel's 22-day onslaught against the Palestinian territory.
On December 2008, Tel Aviv launched an all-out military action against Gaza, killing 1,400 people, including a large number of women and children, killed and leaving thousands more injured.
The threats come despite the Israeli army's failure in its January operation to reach its strategic and military objectives — above all its pledged overthrow of Israel's long-time arch foe, Hamas.
In July, the activist group Breaking the Silence released print and video testimony from some 30 soldiers who said they entered Gaza with firing guns upon a "permissive" guideline by commanders, urging to shoot first and worry later about distinguishing civilians from combatants.
The 112-page testimony also accused Israeli troops of using Palestinian civilians as human shields and charged Israel with dropping forbidden white phosphorus bombs indiscriminately into Gaza streets on the top of aerial bombardment and heavy artillery fire.
In April, former South African UN prosecutor Richard Goldstone led an independent fact-finding mission commissioned by the United Nations Human Rights Council to investigate international human rights and humanitarian law violations during the Gaza war.
The committee's 575-page report mostly highlighted Israeli atrocities against the people in the beleaguered Gaza Strip and documented deliberate targeting of centers, such as schools and mosques, known to be holding civilians.
The document also filed complaints that the Israeli soldiers killed unarmed people on the run, saying some of the victims were even waving white flags.
In October, the damning report was put up for a vote in the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council and endorsed by an overwhelming majority of 114 countries while 18 opposed and 44 abstained.
The three-week Israeli land, sea and air offensive in the Gaza Strip also devastated a large part of the infrastructure in the impoverished coastal enclave, which remains under Tel Aviv's blockade despite international opposition.
Well here we are; an Orwellian nightmare. The sheeple are nervously munching at the stalks of a once verdant credit-lawn; fluoride and barium their staple dietary additives, drooling over the News tidbits of positive growth in the economy whilst refusing to question the Nobel peace prize for 12 days of an uneventful presidency - apart from of course - His deafening silence over the ritual slaughter of children in Gaza. Mmmmm? So I'll bow out for now and get back to contemplating the vagaries of human nature, or my navel, whichever comes into focus first...until I get that head-rush which will precipitate a monologue of profound and effusive essays.
