I loved Christmas growing up! It was one of the most special times of year for me for a lot of reasons. Certainly, all of us – at least those of us that have grown up celebrating Christmas on December 25th – have many fond memories of Christmas in our lives. I know I do. I gave up the notion of their being a Santa Claus early on in my childhood, and for as long as I can remember as an adult, I believed Christmas day was the day that the Savior of the world was born – even before I knew the implication of what that meant for me personally. It was just what everyone I had ever met told me as I grew up, and what everyone had told them when they were growing up. December 25th is when we celebrate Christmas (Christ Mass or Christ Celebration) because Jesus was born on that day. Right? Yet the shocking history of Christ reveals a different Jesus whose birth is celebrated. Are you ready for this?
Yes, I know. Why in the world do I want to ruin a good thing? What can I be thinking to make such a statement as to cast any doubt upon the very foundation of what December 25th represents to billions (whether they are Christian or not). And for sure, who can deny the magical moments that surround that time of year. It has become synonymous with peace and goodwill towards all men. What a wonderful thought! The uniqueness of this special holiday with all of its delicious trappings, the smells of foods cooking, Christmas lights everywhere, a Christmas tree decorated so beautifully with ornaments, twinkling reflections of light that can be seen in all the little colored ball ornaments. Christmas is a magical time of year, isn’t it? Well, would you believe that calling it a ‘magical time’ of year is probably a better choice of words than calling it a ‘HOLY time’ of year, because the shocking history of Christmas reveals a different Jesus who is worshipped as being born on that day. Listen, and learn. Let those who have ears to hear, hear what is being said here.
EXTRA! EXTRA! Read all about it! December 25th, the Birth of the Anti-Christ!
Yes! Reading a headline like this would shock me too! Truth be told, if a newspaper were to bring something like this as a Christmas morning headline in their paper, they would probably be run out of town! I mean, when you figure that the average family goes in debt by hundreds of dollars each year just to pull of a reasonably decent Christmas celebration, and then to open the newspaper and read a headline that associated their financial investment in fun and family and celebration was in fact celebrating the birth of the Anti-Christ, I am thinking that there would be public outrage towards the newspaper in that town. Wouldn’t you think? The Truth be told – whether a newspaper prints the headline or not – this is the very reality of what takes place on December 25th each year.
Idol-god of Satanists & Free Masonry (Baphomet)
Pictured here is the god that is worshiped in Freemasonry called “Baphomet.” He is actually Satan the “horned god” who is half human with the head of a goat. His astrological sign is “Capricorn” the goat beginning on the Zodiac Cycle from December 22nd through January 21st. Back in 1981, before I was born again, I had dabbled in the Zodiac and I found a book entitled “Jesus Was a Capricorn.” Even Kris Kristofferson had written a song entitled “Jesus Was a Capricorn” back in the 1970’s which became popular.You seeSatan wants us to believe that Yahu’shua (Jesus) was born on December 25th because he wants us to believe that “Jesus was a reincarnation of Lucifer.” In other words, Satan wants to be Jesus the Messiah so that he can be worshiped!
Why Does Satan Like December 25th for the Birth of Messiah?
Ever since the Tower of Babel, beginning with Nimrod and his reincarnated son Tammuz (Ezekiel 8:14), there have been many pagan false Messiahs. Each of these characters are fallen angels who took on the identity of “ascended masters” who were supposedly reincarnations of the “Universal Christ” for all religions. In essence, this is “Gnosticism” the false doctrine that teaches that “Yahu’shua (Jesus) the Messiah of Israel did not come in the flesh.”
This doctrine teaches instead that our Messiah was merely a reincarnation of all the other pagan gods who came before him on December 25th. This is how Satan has been preparing the entire world to accept the Antichrist. He has been doing this since the beginning of the creation by gradually changing the truth into a lie so that even the “elect” could be deceived.
Why do the pagans want to associate the real Yahu’shua Messiah (Jesus Christ) with the date of December 25th? The answer is quite simple. December 22nd begins the Zodiac cycle of “Capricorn” the “Goat of Mendez” which is also Satan or Baphomet, the “horned god” who is worshiped by Satanists and High Degree Masons. The pagans want us to believe that Yahu’shua Messiah (Jesus Christ) was a reincarnation of Lucifer on December 25th the month of “Capricorn the Goat”!
Capricorn is Capricornus a Latin compound of “goat-head.” “Capra” means head in Latin while “cornus” means horn. The original Greek Aegocerus means “goat-horned.”
Enoch’s Constellations Testify of Messiah
Around 2,900 years before the birth of Messiah, the book of Enoch reveals that the angel Uriel had shown him the constellations that were created by YHWH for the purpose of telling the gospel message and the prophecy of Messiah coming to earth. There were 48 constellations in all, but 12 of these constellations were named after the 12 Tribes of Israel. Later on, the pagans in Babylon, Greece & Rome got a hold of this information and renamed these constellations after fallen angels. Nimrod (the great grandson of Noah) wanted to build the Tower of Babel for this very reason. He wanted to communicate with the fallen angels and study the stars in order to practice divination and sorcery. But the constellations were never meant to be used in that way. YHWH created the constellations to reveal his plan of salvation for mankind, but Satan uses the constellations to cause people to worship him and the fallen angels. We are commanded however to worship the Creator and not the things that are created by him.
Nimrod’s Kingdom of Babylon
But 2,000 years before the birth of Messiah, Noah’s great grandson, Nimrod built the Tower of Babel (Genesis 10:10, 11:9).
Nimrod consulted with the pagan priests of Satan and he was told that if he committed an act of incest that he would receive greater occult powers and the ability to have what is called “the third eye” or the “all seeing eye of Horus.” And so Nimrod married his mother Semiramis, and together, they built 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 Molech. 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 Molech aka Satan. This can all be verified by reading the book of Jasher which was originally part of the Cannon of scripture in the 1611 King James Version of the Bible. We know that this was a part of the record of scripture, because it is mentioned in other books of the Bible:
Joshua 10:13And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.
2nd Samuel 1:18(Also he bade them teach the children of Judah the use of the bow: behold, it is written in the book of Jasher.)
Nimrod’s wife/mother wanted to keep this false pagan religion alive in order to keep the money coming in. She consulted her astrologers who told her that on December 22nd the sun is the furthest away from the earth, but on December 25th, the sun is “born again.” This is known as the “winter solstice” in paganism. Semiramis became pregnant on March 25th (Easter/Ishtar), which is called the spring equinox in paganism. She told the Babylonian people that Nimrod was the god of the sun, and that he impregnated her, with the rays of the sun.
Exactly 9 months later on December 25th, she gave birth to a son and named him Tammuz. She told the Babylonians that Tammuz was a reincarnation of Nimrod the “sun god” born on December 25th and that she was the “goddess of the moon” or the “Queen of Heaven.” Today the Roman Catholic Church officially named “Mary/Miriam” (the mother of Jesus/Yahu’shua) “The Queen of Heaven”after this pagan fertility goddess.
And so Semiramis then ordered the Babylonians to go into the forest and cut down a tree and decorate it with little balls (which were meant to be Nimrod’s testicles) to commemorate Nimrod who was “cut down” like a tree. Elohim (God) hates this practice which is why he warned the children of Israel not to learn this custom from the pagans.
Jeremiah 10:1 Hear ye the word which YHWH speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:
2 Thus saith YHWH, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; (astrology) 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.
And today, Christ Mass trees are erected supposedly in the name of Jesus, but this practice was started long before Yahu’shua (Jesus) ever came to earth. Did YHWH change his mind now? No, he still hates it and he says “learn NOT the ways of the heathen…”
YHWH rebuked the children of Israel for worshiping this Queen of Heaven who is called by various names i.e. Venus, Isis, Diana, Aphrodite, Ishtar, Easter, Astoreth, Catholic “Mary” etc.
Jeremiah 7:18 The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.
Pictured here is the Universal Mother goddess known as “The Queen of Heaven” (Semiramis) holding her baby son Tammuz born December 25th. Should we assimilate our Messiah to this pagan deity?
Listen to what YHWH says about it:
Deuteronomy 12:29 When YHWH your Elohim cuts off from before you the nations which you go to dispossess, and you displace them and dwell in their land,
30 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;’ for every abomination to YHWH which He hates they have done to their gods; for they burn even their sons and daughters in the fire to their gods.
31 You shall not worship YHWH your Elohim in that way
Did you get this? Let me paraphrase what Yah is saying:
“Don’t learn to worship me the same way that the heathen nations worship their gods and then say that you are doing it for me—-it is an abomination!”
To those who would say: “We can take back the pagan holidays for Jesus” or to those who would say “Let’s put Christ back in Christmas…”
He does not have any affiliation to Christmas and he never did. There is a very sinister reason behind why December 25th was chosen as the alleged birthday of our Messiah. The Papacy in 538 A.D. made Christmas official Roman Catholic Doctrine for no other reason than to have political correctness with the pagans.
Trying to put our beloved Messiah into “Christmas” is like erecting a life size statue of your ex-lover’s private parts right in front of your spouse at the foot of your marriage bed and then saying “honey look what I made for you….”
YHWH hates the fact that his backsliding whoring wife Israel went after her Ba’als and today he sees the Christian Church doing the identical thing and he wants these reminders out of his face!
Pictured here are all of the many “Christs” or false Messiah’s since the days of Nimrod, and they are all reincarnated on December 25th and crucified on March 25th (Ishtar/Easter).
YHWH is telling us that he does not want us to worship him the same way that the pagans worship their gods and then say “we are doing it for you, Jesus” he says this is an abomination!
YHWH was also very angry with the children of Israel for worshiping this pagan sun god named Tammuz born December 25th:
Ezekiel 8:5 Then said he unto me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up mine eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry.
13 He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do.
14 Then he brought me to the door of the gate of YHWH’s house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.
15 Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.
16 And he brought me into the inner court of YHWH’s house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of YHWH, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of YHWH, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.
The Image of Jealousy
Pictured here is the Washington Monument in Washington D.C. This is the Image of Jealousy that YHWH hates and is also called “An Egyptian Obelisk” (Ezekiel 8:5). It is the image of Nimrod’s erect penis. This is what the Christmas Tree represents. It is Nimrod’s Penis decorated with little balls that are meant to represent his testicles.
The Freemasons are responsible for designing Churches with steeples on them because Steeples are powerful talismans that draw witchcraft power and attract demons. This is why YHWH hates these images mentioned in Ezekiel 8 because he knows that they were deliberately designed to resemble Nimrod’s penis and to provoke him to jealousy!
The Biblical Cyclopedia, by McClintock and Strong, says: “Even the spires of churches are symbols retained from the old phallic worship” (“Phallus,” vol. VIII, p. 55).
Thomas Inman, in his book Ancient Pagan and Modern Christian Symbolism, writes that ancient fertility rites and phallic worship resulted in the setting up of various architectural structures such “as we now see towers or spires before our churches, and minarets before mosques” (p. XXII). This is sufficient evidence that our churches should not be adorned with such symbols and that they should have no connection to the worship of God.
As I did more research on steeples I discovered that in paganism they would cut the tops of trees off in the forest and make “phallic” symbols. In the Bible, Elohim (God) called these “groves.”
In the New King James Version the word “Asherah” is used for “groves.” Asherah is the Phoenician “goddess of love” also known as Venus in Rome (aka “Mary” to Catholics). The word “Asherah” in Hebrew means “groves”, yet it comes from the root word “ashar” meaning “straight or erect” hence the phallic symbol or obelisk. “an image of the male reproductive organ.”
Rome is the city with the greatest number of obelisks in the world. There are no less than 19 spires to be found in city squares or in gardens belonging to noble mansions.
St. Peter’s Square is adorned with Rome’s most famous obelisk without hieroglyphs. The Obelisk in St. Peter’s Square lies between the double colonnade and was brought to Rome from Heliopolis. Emperor Caligula had it brought here in 37 AD, to be used as a decoration for what a few years later would have been known as Nero’s Circus. Since St. Peter’s was founded by the remains of this circus, for a very long time the obelisk stood by the side of the basilica.
Once again we see the “worship of nature” is evident here in Obelisks, as Wiccans and witches use these to summon the powers of “nature” yet they are unaware that they are summoning Satan’s power.
Steeples are Phallic symbols and YHWH tells us to destroy them:
Exodus 34:13 But ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves…
Deuteronomy 7:5 But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire.
Jeremiah 43:13 He shall break also the images of Bethshemesh, that is in the land of Egypt; and the houses of the gods of the Egyptians shall he burn with fire. (KJV)
Jeremiah 43:13 He shall break the obelisks of Heliopolis, which is in the land of Egypt, and the temples of the gods of Egypt he shall burn with fire. (English Standard Version)
Here in the English Standard Version the phrase “Obelisk of Heliopolis” is specified.
Child Mass Services to Molech
Pictured here is the half man half horned animal god known as Molech (Satan). December 25th was the day that this deity required that children were sacrificed on the altar to him! Why December 25th? Because this is known in paganism as “the winter solstice” and it is supposedly the best time to offer up babies to Satan because the sun is being “reborn.” Satan wants to be the brightest star in the solar system, and he wants to be called “The Sun” even though in Malachi 4:2 our Messiah Yahu’shua, is called “the Sun of Righteousness.”
The people of Babylon would make a “wish list” for Molech and then they would place their babies to be burned alive into the arms of this god Molech along with their wish list, and they believed that by offering up their babies to this god on December 25th, they would receive everything that they had requested on their wish list in the year to come.
The image of Molech was a giant statue made of iron. Underneath this image was an oven, and it was stoked with wood until it became bright red. The image resembled today’s modern day “Satan Claws” (Santa Clause) and people are still “offering up their children” to Molech the god of prosperity and materialism when they ignorantly allow their children to sit on the lap of the image of Santa/Satan.
The word “mass” in English comes from a Latin word that is defined as follows: “a considerable assemblage, number, or quantity: a mass of troops, the masses, the ordinary or common people as a whole; the working classes or the lower social classes.” The word later on became associated with “mass murder” as in “massacre.” Hence the word “mass” is applied as follows: “pertaining to, involving, or affecting a large number of people: mass unemployment; mass migrations; mass murder.”
How did we derive the term “Christ Mass”? It stems from the perpetual sacrifice of our Messiah Yahu’shua supposedly at every Catholic “Mass”:
“Public celebration of the Eucharist in the Roman Catholic Church and some Protestant churches. The sacrament of the Eucharist.”
Every time we say “Merry Christ Mass” we are declaring that we are “Merry” about the “Mass Murder” of our Messiah on millions of altars in Catholic Churches across the globe on a daily basis! Roman Catholicism teaches that Yahu’shua (Jesus) must be crucified over and over again daily at each and every Mass. They teach that his once and for all sacrifice on the cross was not sufficient to atone for sin!
This very same Babylonian religion originated at the Tower of Babel, and was carried over into other cultures under different names. In Egypt she was known as Isis, Queen of Heaven and Tammuz was known as Horus. Nimrod was known as Seb.
The Egyptian priests placed these initials I H S of the pagan trinity (Isis, Horus & Seb) on a round wafer to commemorate the sun god and they ate it each year on December 25th believing that the sun god was being reincarnated in them as they ate this wafer god. They re-enacted the death of Nimrod on a “tree” on March 25th (Easter) and believed he would be reincarnated on December 25th. This re-enactment was called a “Mass” or Massacre.
Today, these same initials of I H S appear on the Catholic Eucharist Wafer. The Catholic Catechism teaches that the priest has the power to pull Christ down from his throne and crucify him again and again at each Mass. The Catechism states concerning Christ:
“At each mass, he performs the function of the victim anew…”
The Catholic Trinity secretly disguises a different trinity than what most Christians believe in:
The Pope as the “Holy Father”, Jesus as the pagan sun god (reincarnation of Tammuz), and Mary as the Holy Spirit, hence Isis (Mary) Horus (Jesus) Seb (Pope/Father).
Pictured here is the original “Trinity” of the Father Nimrod, the Mother Semiramis, and the Son Tammuz. The Roman Emperor Constantine borrowed this pagan myth and assimilated it to our Messiah. He renamed Nimrod “the Holy Father” (every Pope is supposedly a reincarnation of Nimrod the sun god). The title “Pope” in Latin is Pappas meaning “Father.” He renamed Semiramis “Mary” or the Holy Spirit. He renamed Tammuz “J’Zeus.”
Chanukah: The Re-Dedication of YHWH’s Temple
About 167 years before Messiah came to earth, there was a Greek-Syrian dictator known as Antiochus. Antiochus went into the Jewish temple and set up an abominable image of Zeus the pagan sun god on December 25th and claimed that he was a reincarnation of Zeus on December 25th. He gave himself the title “Epiphanies” which in Greek means “God Manifest” as he claimed that he was a reincarnation of “God” on December 25th.
Interestingly, the word “Epiphanies” adds up to 666 in the Greek alphabet. Antiochus was a precursor to the final Antichrist that will come before the second coming of Yahu’shua Messiah. Satan has now tried to launch a campaign against Chanukah calling it “pagan” when in reality Chanukah celebrates the overthrow of pagan sun god worship that is done each year on December 25th. Chanukah is the exact anti-thesis to Christmas and our Messiah celebrated it because it commemorates the re-dedication of his Father’s House (see John 10:22). The only man-made tradition that has been “added” to the “Feast of Dedication” by Judaism is the myth of the 8-day miracle of the oil that kept the menorah lit for eight days in a row on a one-day supply of oil. This is merely a myth and cannot be substantiated by the book of Maccabees. Also the temple menorah has only 7 branches, not 9 branches. I believe in celebrating Chanukah by reading the story of the Maccabees to our children and remember the Jewish people who died because they loved the commandments of YHWH and refused to bow to a pagan idol. But I believe in using the 7-branch temple menorah and not the 9-branch one invented by traditions of men. There is also much evidence that reveals that our Messiah was conceived on Chanukah and born 9 months later on in September on the Feast of Trumpets (see my article entitled “The Conception of Yahu’shua on Chanukah”).
The original name of Jesus was Yahu’shua (Joshua), which is what his parents named him. Yahu’shua literally means “Yahu shall save.”
When the angel Gabriel appeared to Miriam (Mary) the mother of Yahu’shua, he did not tell her to give him a Greek name. Gabriel said to name him Yahu’shua “for he shall save” his people.
Matthew 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, andthou shalt call his name YAHU’SHUA (JESUS): for he shall save his people from their sins.
Whose Birthday Are You Really Celebrating? J’Zeus or Yahu’shua?
The Greeks called their supreme deity “Zeus” but when they were receiving Yahu’shua as their Messiah in the 1st Century, they began placing a letter “Y” in front of Zeus as Y’Zeus since Yah is the Hebrew name for the self-existent eternal Elohim (God). From Y’Zeus, Ieosus became the Greek way to spell Yahu’shua (Joshua). Later on when the English translations of the Bible went into print, a new letter was added to the alphabet—the letter “J” and it was meant to sound like the “Y” sound. From there J’Zeus or Ieosus/Jeosus in Greek was the transliteration for Yahu’shua. The Greek transliteration of Yahu’shua was supposed to sound like “Yeosus” or Ieosus but as time went on in American culture, the letter “J” began to take on the pronunciation of the letter “G.” Hence today, the name Jesus sounds more like “Geezus” than the Greek “Yaysoos” or the Hebrew Yahu’shua. “Geezus” means nothing to people living in Israel or Hebrew speaking people. But Yahu’shua (Joshua) is his real name given to him by his heavenly Father.
In Latin the term “Io” means “hail” or “praise.” Hence on December 25th in Ancient Rome, people would give praises to the god Saturn on December 25th and shout “Io, Saturnalia, Io, Saturnalia.” This was a day for drunkeness, orgies, child sacrifices and debauchery. Later on the Roman pagan god of Jupiter & the Greek pagan god Zeus were merged into J’Zeus and so the phrase “Io Zeus, Io Zeus” was also used to say “Praise Zeus.” The Greek transliteration for the name of our Messiah went from Yahu’shua to Ieosus and this is how we came to the name J’Zeus. So you see, Io Zeus is the same thing as Ieosus which means “Praise Zeus!”
In 167 B.C. Antiochus Epiphanies sacrificed a pig on the altar of sacrifice in the Jewish Temple, and he outlawed the holy feasts of YHWH from Leviticus 23 as he persecuted the Jewish people. He burned all of the Torah scrolls he could find and he would not allow the Jewish people to obey the commandments of YHWH. He forced them to eat pork against their will and he forced them to worship him instead as the reincarnation of Zeus on December 25th and if they did not, they were executed.
During the days when Antiochus persecuted the Jews, there was a Jewish man by the name of Judah Maccabees. He and his sons began a revolt and they took back YHWH’s temple and cleansed it.
About 160 years after the Maccabean Revolt, Miriam/Mary conceived Yahu’shua on Chanukah in 4 B.C. on December 13th. This can be calculated precisely through scripture by knowing the date of John the Baptist’s birth from Luke chapter 1. John the Baptist’s father Zechariah was a priest in the temple and of the division of Abijah. In the book of 2nd Chronicles we find out that King David had divided up the priesthood into 24 courses annually. There were 24 priests and each one would serve for 2 weeks throughout the year. Zechariah, being of the division of Abijah, would serve in the Jewish month of Sivan (June on our calendar). Zechariah went home to his wife Elizabeth and she conceived immediately following his temple duty according to the words of Gabriel.
In 325 A.D., Constantine a Roman Emperor, in an attempt to unify the Roman Empire, combined this same pagan religion from Babylon with so-called Christianity. Constantine worshiped “Mithra” the pagan sun god born December 25th. He believed he could bring unity to Rome by keeping this pagan religion and combining it with Christianity. So he wrote the Edict of Milan and he dis-fellowshipped the Jewish believers in Yahu’shua (Jesus).
But Constantine did not remove the pagan statues from the pagan temples but instead he gave them “Christian” names. He named Venus “Mary” and he named Sol the pagan sun god “Jesus.”
He wrote: “…the Jews are dogs and the Christians should have nothing to do with the Jews…God has shown us a better way…”
He outlawed Passover and enforced “Easter” in its place for the Babylonian goddess Ishtar/Semiramis. He also outlawed Sabbath and enforced it on Sunday for the sun god instead. He had believers in Messiah killed who kept these feasts of YHWH from Leviticus 23 that the Jewish Apostles and Yahu’shua also kept.
In the 5th Century, the Catholic Church officially made Christ Mass on December 25th the official date for celebrating the birth of Messiah because of Constantine’s influence.
Constantine was the first Pope historically giving himself the title “Pontifex Maximus” which is still to this day the official title of a Pope. This literally means “The Ultimate Bridge” between God and Man! In other words, the word “Pontiff” means “bridge” as every Pope purports to be the bridge or mediator between Elohim (God) and Man just like Yahu’shua (Jesus)!
The word “pope” means “father” in Latin and Yahu’shua said “call no man upon the earth your father, for there is one who is your father…” (Matthew 23:9)
So where does the term “Christ Mass” have its origin? The Catholic Mass is a Massacre of Christ where he is being crucified all over again according to Catholic dogma.
When we say “Merry Christ Mass” we are saying “Let’s be Merry about crucifying Jesus afresh…”
But Hebrews 6 tells us “seeing they crucify to themselves the son of God afresh and put him to an open shame…”
If we say “Merry Christ Mass” we are saying that we are merry about putting our Messiah, Yahu’shua to an open shame!
Why does the Catholic Church believe he must be crucified afresh? Because they teach that Yahu’shua did not inherit a corruptible physical nature like us, and that he did not crucify the sinful nature on the cross. But Romans 8:3 says that Yahu’shua (Jesus) “came in the likeness of sinful flesh…” so that he could destroy sin in the flesh once and for all!
Romans 6:10 …For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto Elohim (God).
Catholicism teaches that Yahu’shua (Jesus) inherited a sinless divine nature from Mary his mother as they teach that she was born without original sin. This is what is called the “Immaculate Conception.” Most Protestants think this has to do with the virgin birth of Yahu’shua Messiah, but it does not. The Immaculate Conception is about Mary’s birth supposedly without original sin. And of course this is total blasphemy and a lie.
Mary, although a godly woman was born as a sinner like everyone else and she herself acknowledged her need for Yahu’shua to save her.
And so this is what is so blasphemous about the Catholic Mass and why we as believers should have nothing to do with saying “Merry Christ Mass.”
1st John 4:3 in the King James Version (other versions deleted this verse) gives us a litmus test for how to “try the spirits” to see whether or not they are from Elohim (God). It says that “every spirit” which denies or “confesses not” that “Yahu’shua Messiah is come in the flesh” (with a carnal nature) is from the Antichrist. What does this mean “come in the flesh?” The Greek word for “flesh” in this verse is “sarx” meaning “having a sensual nature.” This means that Yahu’shua had a corruptible nature physically but not spiritually. His blood came from his Heavenly Father, but his corruptible body came from his mother. Yahu’shua had to possess both natures in order to be the anointed Savior. He had to have an incorruptible nature spiritually, having blood that was perfect and without sin so as to be the perfect atonement for sin. He had to also possess a corruptible nature physically so that he could put to death “the body of sins” (Colossians 2:11, 1st Peter 2:24, Romans 6:6).
This Catholic Doctrine which says that Mary was born without original sin and that Yahu’shua did not possess a carnal nature either because of her, is from the Antichrist! Yahu’shua had to possess a carnal nature in order to destroy sin on the cross once and for all. Yahu’shua was 100% Elohim (God) and 100% Human at the same time. Although he never sinned, he was “tempted in every way as we are” (Hebrews 4:15).
And so the Catholic Mass is Antichrist doctrine which denies that Yahu’shua destroyed the carnal sinful nature on the cross once and for all. That is why they teach he must “perform the function of the victim anew at every Mass…”
Now we see how Anti-Christ Christ Mass really is!
If Yahu’shua is supposedly another reincarnation of all the false pagan Messiah’s born December 25th that have come up through the centuries i.e. Nimrod, Tammuz, Apollo, Zeus, Bacchus, Krishna, etc. then “he is not come in the flesh.” In other words this teaching insinuates that “the Christ” is a consciousness rather than a person! Yahu’shua (Jesus) is the Messiah fully in the flesh! The Catholic Mass denies this by teaching that he must be crucified over and over again at each Mass.
Today, Christendom has borrowed much of its system from the ancient Babylonian religion of Nimrod and Semiramis, which is why Yahu’shua (Jesus) said in Revelation 18 concerning MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS:
Revelation 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
In the 1500’s many people obeyed this command and did just what Yahu’shua commanded here. They left Roman Catholicism and thus began the biggest revival in European history. We call this The Protestant Reformation. Protestant Churches preached against Christ Mass and Easter, and even the Puritans that came over on the Mayflower wanted nothing to do with these pagan days. It was official church doctrine in the Baptist, Presbyterian and many other Protestant Denominations not to observe these Catholic Pagan days known as Christ Mass and Easter. In fact, it was against the law to own a Christ Mass tree in the 1600’s in America!
Only in the past 100 years in America, have these pagan days become popular once again in the Protestant churches. Why?
1st Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.
As we approach the second coming of Yahu’shua Ha’Mashiach (Jesus the Messiah), the Bible tells us that many shall depart from the faith of the Jewish Apostles and give heed to doctrines of devils.
Many Jews believe that Yahu’shua (Jesus) was a false pagan Messiah because we Christians have been lying and telling the world that he was born on the same day that Antiochus Epiphanies persecuted them under inspiration of the pagan sun god Zeus on December 25th. They also see that we are celebrating his resurrection on “Easter” which comes one month earlier from Passover on our solar pagan calendar. They view this as a big joke because we claim that Yahu’shua (Jesus) is our “Passover Lamb” yet we celebrate his resurrection one month before Passover according to the corruption of the Roman Papacy who corrupted YHWH’s calendar. No wonder why Jews have a hard time accepting Yahu’shua as the Messiah, with all of our confusing mixture of Babylonian sun god worship which only serves to distort prophecy.
Jews see December 25th as a day when they were being persecuted for worshiping the one true Elohim (God) YHWH, and they were forced to worship a false Messiah “Zeus” on December 25th.
Yahu’shua told the woman at the well:
John 4:22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
Any Jew knows that YHWH would never allow the Messiah to be born on a pagan sun god day. Any Jew knows that when Messiah comes he will be born on a Holy day of YHWH from Leviticus 23 of which YHWH said “ye shall observe these throughout all your generations…forever…”
Celebrating the Appointed Feasts of YHWH versus the Pagan Days that Commemorate Nimrod
The Holy Feast days of YHWH were never meant to go away with the New Covenant. All of the pagan sun god worship festivals that we have adopted instead point to the Antichrist, Nimrod, the first impostor to the true Jewish Messiah in history.
We can unveil the true Jewish Messiah by telling the truth that Yahu’shua was born on a Holy Day of YHWH and not on a man-made pagan sun god day.
Colossians 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
This verse is often used out of context to justify keeping pagan days, but it is saying just the opposite. We are not to judge those who want to keep the feasts of YHWH from Leviticus 23 that are called “holy” and we are not to judge each other in HOW these holy days are celebrated. This means that we don’t have to sacrifice animals any longer under the new administration of grace. Every believer in Yahu’shua is now under the royal priesthood of Melchizedek, and so we do not celebrate these feasts in the rabbinical way that they were formerly kept. We are now led by the Holy Spirit in how we keep these holy days. This verse is in no way condoning keeping pagan days, because YHWH never called them holy.
Only when we start associating Yahu’shua with the Holy Days of YHWH will the Jewish people begin to recognize him as the true Jewish Messiah.
The Jewish people are on YHWH’s top list of priorities because in John 4:22 Messiah revealed to us that “salvation comes from the House of Judah” (Jews). It is a small sacrifice for us as believers to give up man-made traditions in order to win them back:
Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Messiah: for it is the power of Elohim (God) unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
Do you remember what Yahu’shua said concerning Traditions of Men?
Matthew 15:6 Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.
If we want the commandments of YHWH to once again become effective in our lives, we must abandon the “traditions of men.”
The Law of Moses is not “done away with” (Matthew 5:17-19), but rather it has been transferred from stone into “fleshy tables of the heart” (2nd Corinthians 3:3). Under the New Covenant, these same laws given to us in stone through Moses were now given to every believer on the Day of Pentecost (called Shavuot) written upon our minds and hearts (Hebrews 8:10, 10:16).
Before we can see the same fire from heaven as in the days when Elijah offered up the sacrifice on Mount Carmel, we must first follow the same steps that Elijah followed. He did several things in 1st Kings 18 before YHWH Elohim consumed the sacrifice:
1. He repaired the broken down altar. This means that he re-established true biblical worship not patterned after Baal or sun god worship.
2. He set up 12 stones after the 12 tribes “from whom the word of Elohim (God) came.” This means that he re-established the plum line of the Torah (God’s Law).
3. He watered the sacrifice “three times” with “four barrels.” This symbolizes three major outpourings of the Holy Spirit in history. The number four symbolizes the “four corners” of the earth or “harvest.” This means that the pattern for true revival will always be preceded by the “washing of water by the word” (Ephesians 5:26). In other words, a return to the scriptures as the plum line is the plum-line to a true revival—-and not merely “manifestations.” This means the baptism of repentance (water/word) must precede the baptism in fire (power).
The true fire of the Holy Spirit will consume the body of believers only when these steps are followed. We cannot by-pass the cross of Messiah and repentance. We cannot skip over these steps and run towards the “fire” or we will end up with “strange fire” which will be a counterfeit.
The Testimony of Yahu’shua (Jesus)
In Revelation 19:10 we read that the “testimony of Yahu’shua is the spirit of prophecy.” We also read in Revelation 12:17 that the dragon will make war with the remnant of Israel’s seed that “keep the commandments” and “have the testimony of Yahu’shua Messiah.” And lastly we find out in Revelation 22:14 that only those who “do his commandments” may have right to eat from the tree of life, and may enter into the gate of the New Jerusalem!
This being the case, don’t you want to know what the “testimony of Yahu’shua” is? Don’t you want to find out what all of this means so that you may be able to do the commandments?”
The Holy Feast Days of YHWH are commanded for “all Israel” (not only the house of Judah/Jews) and they are the “Testimony of Yahu’shua (Jesus)” because they declare his testimony as follows:
1. Passover: The death of Yahu’shua Messiah on the cross as our Passover Lamb
2. Feast of Unleavened Bread: The burial of Yahu’shua Messiah.
3. First Fruits: Yahu’shua’s true resurrection day. He went into the lowest parts of the earth and brought before the Father “the first fruits” of men’s souls (Ephesians 4:8; 1st Corinthians 15:20-23; James 1:18; Revelation 14:4).
4. Feast of Weeks/Pentecost: Yahu’shua baptized believers in fire and the Holy Spirit as he promised; He also wrote the Torah/Law in our hearts and minds as the sign of the New Covenant.
5. Feast of Trumpets: Yahu’shua’s true date of birth on September 11th 3 B.C. the Father “announced his son” with a great sound of a trumpet blast into the world; the future catching away of the bride at the “last trump.”
6. Day of Atonement: Yahu’shua announced in the temple on Yom Kippur that he had fulfilled Isaiah 61 as the “anointed one” who was to come. He proclaimed the “acceptable year of the Lord” that year for Israel’s sins had been forgiven because of him; He became the “scapegoat” by taking away sin and took sin out in the wilderness for 40 days, never to return (as far as the east is from the west); (Luke 4:18-21).
7. Feast of Tabernacles: Yahu’shua dwelled in the sukkah or manger with his parents during this eight day feast shortly after his birth; The future consummation of the wedding between Messiah and his bride. He will drink the 4th cup of the Kingdom in the New Millennium and his bride shall “tabernacle” or dwell in peace and safety with him for 1,000 years.
8. Weekly Sabbath: Yahu’shua resurrected on Saturday night at sundown (the first day of the week) “three days and three nights after his Wednesday Passover crucifixion and this is why he declared “I am Lord of the Sabbath.”
Yahu’shua will fulfill the Sabbath Millennium 7,000 years from creation as 1,000 years of rest when we receive our new bodies. (2nd Peter 3:8, one day is as one thousand years with YHWH).
The Sabbaths & Feast Days A Sign of Our Covenant with YHWH
As New Covenant believers who are born again by the Holy Spirit and washed in the blood of the lamb, we are now grafted into the Olive Tree (Israel) according to Romans 11, and we are “part of the commonwealth of Israel” (Ephesians 2:12). Now because we are New Covenant Israel, we are still commanded to keep his “Sabbaths” (Feasts) as a “sign” between us and him forever. This is what sanctifies us and sets us apart from the other pagan religions of the world:
Exodus 31:13 Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am YHWH that doth sanctify you.
Ezekiel 20:12 Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them that they might know that I am YHWH that sanctify them.
Ezekiel 20:20 And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am YHWH your Elohim (God).
Why should we abandon the pagan feasts of Nimrod made to appear “Christian”?
1. Because they are an abomination to YHWH, and he hates them.
2. Because they defile us and keep us in deception.
3. Because they point to another Christ, not the true Messiah of Israel.
4. Because the Anti-Messiah will mark his own children with the “sign” which are the feasts ordained by the Roman Papacy.
Why should we keep the Feasts of YHWH?
1. They are a sign between us and him forever.
2. They declare the testimony of Yahu’shua (Jesus).
3. They are called “holy convocations” (rehearsals) of prophetic future events.
YHWH has given us a “sign” of his covenant forever and they are his appointed feasts and Sabbaths. These are what separate us and sanctify us from the other counterfeit religions.
