Why Christmas IS NOT A PAGAN HOLIDAY.

To clarify the text below for some readers – this is my personal conviction and opinion supported by others. If you disagree with anything here, take it to the Lord in prayer. I do not claim to be a master or a teacher and to know everything perfectly as someone suggested. Since the beginning of Christianity, there have been disagreements and arguments of which the Apostle Paul himself wrote. It’s not different today. Some of my close, personal Christian friends disagree with me about Christmas, so you need to decide for yourself if you want to celebrate the birth of Christ or not.

———————————————————————————————————————————

I am coming boldly against the lying statements of some Christian and non-Christian conspiracy theorists claiming that Christmas is a pagan holiday which causes lots of confusion and suffering as well. It reminds me of one young family whom I knew at school where I used to teach. They had two lovely kids and also were teachers. The mum of a young father was also a teacher. At one point those young people became Jehovah Witnesses. They stopped celebrating Christmas and other holidays, they became weird and changed dramatically. The mother of that young man complained that her grandchildren are utterly unhappy as they suddenly are denied Christmas, Christmas tree, gifts and all the Christmas celebration they knew from the past. Everyone in that family was unhappy and shocked. Nowadays, someone is diligently trying to destroy this long tradition of celebrating the birth of Jesus. It reminds me that Jehovah witness couple. As most people know Jehovah’s Witness is a cult, who does not even believe that Jesus Christ is God and our Savior. It saddens me badly that devoted Christians are rejecting now the most beautiful holidays of the year.  More and more Christians are giving up on Christmas without the proper knowledge and checking if this is true, that Christmas is a pagan holiday. They stop celebrating the birth of our precious Savior, singing the most beautiful Christmas carols and songs which our great, great grandfathers sung to glorify Jesus Christ.

Think about it, who is behind Jehovah’s Witness cult? Isn’t it the devil and the spirit of antichrist? Whoever denies that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God, God Himself and our Saviour is a lair and an antichrist, said John, the Apostle.

So, if this is the case, who does not want Christians to celebrate Christmas? Isn’t it the same spirit of antichrist? I bet it is. I have been walking with Jesus very close for the last 12 years and I have never had any conviction about Christmas. Yes, we are not to overeat and overspend money going crazy about presents and other things, not to mention work Christmas parties where people get totally drunk.

I am talking about born again Christians who love the Lord Jesus and it brings them a joy to remember that He was born for us in December. This is also a great occasion to tell others why we love Christmas and why Jesus was born.

Lots of people just watch some conspiracy videos on youtube and without making any research they just follow blindly anybody who says something online.

This is wrong and this is not very wise because, firstly, this way you can be led astray by anybody.  Secondly, how do you know who is the person who made that video? Do you know him personally? Are you sure it is not a satanist who is only pretending to be a Christian? We do not know who is on the other side. Do not believe blindly anything.

Now, anyone can make any video they want and upload it to youtube, Beware and be wise. Jesus Christ told us to be gentle like a lamb and wise like a serpent. Be careful people, satan and his demons are very crafty, much more than humans, check everything and pray about any strange changes that you may want to introduce into your life after watching any unchecked video or reading unchecked articles. That is also true that Christmas has been hijacked by the world and people celebrate it no matter if they are Christians or not. As it is written on the following pages (you can check the validity of the historic information given by going to the old-style libraries with paper, printed books). I cannot imagine the Lord not being happy when His children, the church celebrates His birth every year. Do you celebrate your child’s, mother’s, father’s friend’s birthday? I bet you do, so why we should not be happy that our Wonderful Prince of Peace was born to save us from our sins? There is an excellent, article below with historical facts which explain that IT WAS PAGANS who stole the date of Christmas celebration from Christians. You can read a lot more information there which will prove that Christmas belongs to Christ. The article is well written and well researched.

Why Christmas is not a pagan holiday

“An increasing number of Christians have come to believe that Christmas is derived from paganism. They’ve heard that the timing of Christmas may have been borrowed from Roman sun god worship. Or that Christmas trees come from German paganism. Or that the star on top of the Christmas tree comes from astrological worship. But these myths are all so wrong. Christmas—the celebration of the Nativity of our Lord—is a thoroughly Christians celebration. Here’s why.” Read more in the link above.

THE BIRTH OF JESUS SERMON

 

 

 

I love Christmas, I love you Jesus my Lord, my King, my life and my Saviour forever.

And I will not be quiet about your birth, this is the time to tell everybody why we have such joy and why armies of angels were singing when you came to this world.

Thank you, Lord, for humbling yourself and becoming a man to save us.

 

Amazing, angelic voice.

 

An amazing young Christian singer. “Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger”.

MY REDEEMER LIVES by Nicole Mullen (Aldrich & James cover)

To all those who do not know yet, that praise we give to God, truly silences the enemy, be assured that it is exactly like it says in this psalm. The adversary hates when we praise our God and does flee, so if you are in troubles, no matter what, praise the Lord!

It will always uplift you, give you strength, the angels come and sing with you, the Holy Spirit pours His anointing on you, and you become invincible! Praise God with all your heart even through tears, through filling stuck, even if you do not feel like praising the Lord, still do it! Very often we are afflicted by the various demonic attacks to make us feel hopeless, depressed, angry, disappointed and so on but praise destroys all the traps of the devil! Praise the Lord! Like the apostle Paul said:  Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.  Philippians 4:4

 

Lord, our Lord,

how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You have set your glory

in the heavens.

Through the praise of children and infants

you have established a stronghold against your enemies,

to silence the foe and the avenger.

When I consider your heavens,

the work of your fingers,

the moon and the stars,

which you have set in place,

what is mankind that you are mindful of them,

human beings that you care for them?

You have made them  a little lower than the angels

and crowned them with glory and honor.

You made them rulers over the works of your hands;

you put everything under their feet:

all flocks and herds,

and the animals of the wild,

the birds in the sky,

and the fish in the sea,

all that swim the paths of the seas.

Lord, our Lord,

how majestic is your name in all the earth!

Psalm 8

MEAK, HUMBLE & GENTLE LIKE JESUS

Mature Christian is:

MEAK, HUMBLE & GENTLE LIKE JESUS

Fight sin in you, sin brings darkness, darkness belongs to your fierce enemy, the devil who roams like a lion to devour. When you sin, you invite him and his demons to destroy you in many ways. Fight sin with all your might and with the help of the Lord Jesus Christ your Savior, you were bought for a price, you do not belong to yourself anymore, you belong to Him, who died for you. Serve Him, love Him, be like Him.

Fight greed, lust, anger, wrath, slander, gossip, evil thoughts, evil desires of your heart, jealousy, love of money, envy, love of the world, love of possession, arrogance, pride, fear, worry, unbelief and many more, read the Book of Proverbs daily. God is there to help us.

 

Christians who are depressed or want to commit suicide need deliverance.

This is true. Suicide is caused by demons. They first attack people with depression and then whisper to your ears to kill yourself. This is a terrible and exhausting battle, some people are too weak to keep resisting, and they do not understand what is going on. Only Jesus Christ can deliver those people permanently from this kind of torment. This is all demonic. Shame on churches and Christians for not doing or believing in deliverance, they avoid this topic as if it was shameful and untrue but this is all in the bible. Jesus showed us what to do and how to do it to help others. Christians, you had better get the knowledge and believe what the word of God says. It’s unthinkable that a pastor did such a thing. In the bible, there is only one case, Judas, who committed suicide. Depression and suicidal thoughts are terrible, it’s a horrible torment. What a shame that there was nobody to cast out demons of that pastor to help him.

Wake up people, the bible is true, all of it. Demons are real and there is a strong reason why Paul told us to put on the armor of God. This is the commandment of the Lord Jesus to cast out demons and heal the sick, not only to preach the gospel.

This is the perverse and wicked generation of the last days. Beware of horrible language spoken.

This is the generation of so-called Millenials, soft, super tolerant to all kinds of people except Christians. The girl who is screaming and swearing is full of demons, and we can see the hatred of the devil towards Jesus Christ and His children expressed through this girl. This is so shocking and disgusting, it is hard to watch, how they are brainwashed and deprived of any kind of faith and belief in God, in morals, in 10 commandments. They think that everything is permitted, and they can live freely doing whatever they want. How are they going to be saved? Who is going to tell them about Jesus? The churches I know are full of old people, there are very few young ones and there is nobody to go and tell those who never heard.  Jesus commanded us to go and snatch those people out of the fire but who is willing to do it? The young man in this video is obviously very brave to stand strong in the face of such opposition but there are many more needed to go and preach the gospel to this lost generation.

May God have mercy on these young people and on us, the Christians who are too lazy to go and wake them up. May it be a call for every Christian to be convicted and to start working for the Kingdom of God. These young people are on the way to hell, and they have no clue about it.
