Most of us had fond memories of celebrating Christmas with family and friends that could have been heartwarming. I know did. We go out all the way for people who do not care anything about us on Christmas. We give tangible gifts to others, only to hear, “This is not what I wanted.”  I wanted Jordans; this came from the dollar tree; wrong color blouse” or just something very downright humiliating and very downer for someone who went out there way to do something nice. People are all upset and crying because of all the mishaps of one day.  First of all why are we filling up a tree for others on what we are calling Jesus birthday?

Isaiah 9:6 KJV prophesied the word of God saying For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Matthew 1:21KJV, and all throughout we see clear of evidence Christ was born. God gave his only begotten Son John 3:16 KJV, so we can certainly we realize that Jesus Christ was born, and he died and arose from the dead. Now John tells us that Ye must be born again, and that is the birth about Jesus being born in our lives.  Now the issue at hand was Jesus born on December 25th? Although it is common for people to want to find a way to celebrate his birth (commercialism is not it), there were very little directives found telling us to commemorate his birth.  We are assured that as oft as we remember or celebrate his resurrection and what he went through when he died for our sins,  and we do that in remembrance of Him as recorded in the scripture.  1 Corinthians 11:24-26 KJV And when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come

We do not want to leave out his birth because he had to be born to die even for our sins. It is important to be aware of that.  The most important thing for us to know is about him being born/birth into our lives rather than resurfacing on celebrating pagan holidays. If you thought about it, Muslims, Jehovah Witness who are blind to the truth more often would not stand to celebrate any of these holidays or even dare to find an alternative to them. Should we celebrate Christmas on December 25th when Christ was more likely not born on that day? Why are we doing it? Is it because it is accepted wide world as  Jesus Christ’s birthday? Putting a little Santa Clause with is considered fun?  Invoking the Yule god of fertility is becoming.  The mistletoes represents semen?  Nimrod had a relationship with Semiramis ( it is mother and child). It is said to give meaning to the Silent Night’s clause of “holy, so infant-mother child” that is found central focus in the Roman Catholic religion identified mother and child focus. Mass means death. It is identified in Christmas. The tree and reef are not something that we are supposed to be doing either.

Jeremiah 10:2 KJV Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.

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.

4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.

December 25th is more than likely not the day at all. Early Christians did not celebrate for at least the first 200 years a.d. Actually from research his birth is not likely to December 25, but more linked to happening around September, according to the calendar. December 25th was the day wherein Romans celebrated and worshiped the birth of the unconquered sun “sun god worship”. In time sun god worship interchangeably became picked up and mixed as people started identify that as the of the Son of God/El Hijo de Dios birth being on the same day.

Truth

Jolly ole Saint Nicholas and Santa Clause is not coming down the chimney. He was not buying anybody toys, which many parents referred to lying to their children,  after working all those long hours only to put their work on a fairy tale or folktale, wives-tale to take credit. No Santa Clause does not live up in the north pole, not riding a sleigh, and not bringing Rudolph, the red nose reindeer. He does not see you when you are sleep and awake. No! These were lies that Christians also began embracing along with the world.

Some thought it was cute just like the Halloween. Now more people may understand Halloween and have disgruntled beliefs about that one, but Christmas maybe a hard one to tug. We have been doing it so long. Sure it may seem a little indifferent to some to stop abruptly celebrating it, especially after doing all your lives if you have. You may not have known it was not right, for crying out loud the church may have been decorated with this once upon a time, but it is not right.

Although Pastor Sister Shirley Caesar states in her song “Oh Christmas Tree How Lovely Are Your Branches”, she connects the Christmas tree represents Jesus Christ dying on the cross, and it does not. Isaiah 53:5 mentions He wounded for our transgression, bruised for our iniquities. That was painful to have nails in your flesh hands and feet, wrist (anywhere) and thorns in your head? and we are singing How Lovely Are Your Branches for something so painful? Oh, Christmas Tree does not even coincide with it Jesus Christ dying on the cross as Singer/Pastor Caesar depicts.  She says she thinks about the tree he was hung on. Christmas holiday is framed as being about his birth, not his death, according to the way is categorized. People will find all different types of excuses for it. No, Santa Clause and Jesus were not related.  If you walk in the department store around Christmas, you would probably hear “Santa Clause is coming to town. Next you would probably hear “Jesus Oh what a wonderful child”. The other lines would be  “Rudolph the red nose reindeer, Joy to the world,” then Ave Maria (Hail Mary). Who is this holiday even about in the first place? One song is about Santa, and the other is about Jesus. Who are we celebrating here? It is the same thing with Halloween. The world will celebrate Halloween, take out the ghosts, jack-o-lantern, and the Christians says we will just have an alternative called Jesus-ween or Hallelujah night. They will go on to say will just opt the ghost and jack-o’-lantern, you know we just won’t do the scary stuff.
