THE STORY OF CHRISTMAS : VERY COMPELLING
THE BIG STORES CANT WAIT FOR YOUR TITHES AND OFFERINGS AND THATS INCLUDING YOUR LOCAL CHURCHES TOO

DGJH

The Book of Jeremiah
Chapter 10


1 Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:

2 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."NIBURU as example"


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.

lplplplp


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

plplplp


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.

BJMUIK


14 Every man is brutish in his knowledge: every founder is confounded by the graven image: for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them.

15 They are vanity, and the work of errors: in the time of their visitation they shall perish







colossians chapter 2

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,
Touch not; taste not; handle not which all are to perish with the using after the commandments and doctrines of men?

Facts:
THE SHEPHERDS FOUND MESSIAH IN A CRADLE AS A BABY NEW BORN

THE WISE MEN WHO WERE NEVER NUMBERED IN THE BIBLE WENT TO THE MESSIAH WHEN HE WAS ABOUT 2YRS OLD

This totally shows the lying doctrine of three wisemen and the visitation to messiah as new born with the shepherds

WHEN THEY DID NOT RETURN TO HEROD HEROD SENT HIS SOLDIERS IMMEDIATELY TO DESTROY ALL MALES FROM 2YRS AND UNDER...


WHEN THE WISE MEN CAME THEY SAW "THE YOUNG CHILD"

WHEN THE SHEPHERDS CAME THEY SAW "THE BABE WRAPPED IN SWADDLING CLOTHES"

But let me give you a little detail on your most treasured holiday...


DECEMBER 25TH? Hmmmm!


BNVC


In the year 3000 BC., In Babylon was a woman who is known as Semiramis (Ishtar or Easter other names in English. The Bible refers to as Ashtoreth and Astarte. Many called
her Semiramis) which became Queen of Babylon, Semiramis it had adopted a child as a child which called him Nimrod (According to the Bible, Nimrod was a descendant of


9O7U6


Adam and great-grandson of Noah through the line of Ham. It was the natural son of Cush, but legally heir of Shem can be seen in the episode of the Tower of Babel). She was the mother of Nimrod, but later became his wife.


222E


The Babylonians came to regard as a goddess Semiramis. All they wanted closer to Semiramis, and enjoy the privileges of the country, had to bring the newborn child.
Semiramis to Nimrod called a cult, the worship of Nimrod was called moloh. Moloh worship, carried the children in body and soul and threw it at the stake.

Part of the Babylonians were in agreement and not others. They chose to kill Nimrod and succeeded. When her husband was killed, she reportedly became the ruler of the
kingdom from him. But like many of his subjects did not believe that Nimrod was the god parigual he had claimed to be, Semiramis feared losing control over them.

She knew she had come up with something that looks like a great miracle, something that would fill the
people with wonder and really show that Nimrod was a god.
Semiramis acted quickly to bed with one of his priest and being pregnant. Led to

believe all the Babylonian god Nimrod had been reincarnated in it.
Nine months later born child and the child is put as the name Tammuz. Born 25 December in the year 3005 BC. December 25 was the shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere and marked the moment when the days began to lengthen again.



iuoio

By associating with the sun god Nimrod, Semiramis proclaimed that day as the birthday of Sol evergreen tree, symbol of life amid the dead of winter, began to engage in this celebration as a symbol of the rebirth of Nimrod.




THEN CAME YOUR ROMANS WHO CHANGED THE DAY TO SOMETHING THAT APPEARS HOLY "CHRISTMAS".. BUT BEFORE THAT THEY CALLED IT BRUMALIA...
Brumalia was an ancient Roman solstice festival honoring Bacchus, generally held on 25 December and possibly related to the ancient Greek Lenaia (held in honour of Dionysus). The festival included drinking and merriment. The name is derived from the Latin word bruma, meaning "shortest day" or even "winter".

The Brumalia was also celebrated during the space of thirty days, commencing on 24 November[looks like your thanks giving day]. This was instituted by Romulus, who entertained the Senate during this time. During this feast, prophetic indications were taken of the prospects for the remaining part of the winter. According to Choricius of Gaza, Oration XIII, the festival was celebrated as late as the 6th century AD during the reign of Emperor Justinian I who otherwise persecuted paganism.

43 And they entered into Euphrates by the narrow places of the river.
44 For the most High then shewed signs for them, and held still the flood, till they were passed over.
45 For through that country there was a great way to go, namely, of a year and a half: and the same region is called Arsareth.

Hello friend

May i add a few words from my father


"[God The Father answered] Rather, the 144,000 have been purchased (redeemed and chosen) from the earth, as a special offering, and are spiritually undefiled, pure as virgins. Timothy, you have asked... I have answered you plainly. You are of the 144,000. I have already placed My seal upon your forehead... You remember this day. Those who doubt ask of your worthiness and that of defilement by women. Who The Lord has cleansed is worthy of His purpose... Call him not defiled or unworthy. For the defilement, that is written, is not defilement with women, but the woman, called “mother” and “harlot”."

"To serve The Lord as My witness, one must become pure in heart and spirit, and be as a virgin in spirit, separate from the world and the defilement put forth through men, preached in the churches who have forgotten Me. You have not sat among those deceived, nor have you accepted any doctrine at all, until you heard My voice. You were the clay molded by the world, yet unmolded in spirit. This was not of your doing, for I had called you from your birth to stay as a virgin in spirit, without faith in doctrines of the world. Your body defiled by sin, this you were guilty, as all. I have taken your sins from you, and remember your iniquities no more... What defilement remains? What The Lord has cleansed, in the blood of The Lamb, is a new creation... Virgin."

If you are hearing from "The Lord", you also are deceived. Abba has never revealed himself, but by His great name/shem, Yahuwah/YHWH. If this entity that you are listening to and believing to be the Most High Elohim does not refer to itself by name then you are ignorantly in deception. All prophets come in the name/shem of their might one . . . literally. Get educated my friend!

 Quoting: Lisa*Lisa


Pardon my correction of your representation of the only unforgivable sin (breaking of Torah):

If you call the works of righteousness being of the evil one, then you have blasphemed the Holy Spirit/Ruach ha Chodesh. Alternatively, the opposite would be true in that if a "christian" says that the celebration of "christmas" is good, right and accepted by Abba, then they also are misrepresenting what are works of the Ruach ha Chodesh and what are the works of the evil one.

Be careful how you discern what qualifies for the un-pardonable sin/breaking of Torah! Now, go and sin no more . . .

Re: THE STORY OF CHRISTMAS : VERY COMPELLING
Let me be a little more blunt.

When Jesus came to earth, there was one group of people He couldn't stand. The Pharisees.

He loved the sinners, He ate with them, taught them, and healed them.

But He couldn't stand the Pharisees. Why? Because they were religious hypocrites that were only concerned with a list of rules, and they declared themselves righteous based on their rules.

They had no love for God, no idea of the concept of mercy, no compassion for people.......just a list of rules which in their mind, made them justified and holy.

Nothing could have been farther from the truth, and Jesus Himself exposed them.

The number one and number two rule has to do with love. Love God and love your neighbor. Those are the most important things......more important then any list.

One thing on the list was not working on the sabbath, but Jesus Himself broke that rule when He said it was "lawful to do good on the sabbath". So, it's lawful to help others on the sabbath even if it includes "work".

He showed us that there is a greater Law, and that is the law of Love, Mercy & Compassion.......that is the law that is written on our hearts. That's what He's concerned with, make no mistake about it.

Anyone who says otherwise, and just wants to adhere to a list as a means of righteousness is just a modern day Pharisee.

Sorry...that's really what I believe.

Re: THE STORY OF CHRISTMAS : VERY COMPELLING
What about people that are just putting trees inside to decorate for fun? Not actually trying to worship anything at all...

As long as you do not worship the tree go ahead. A christmas tree is no worse than hanging a picture on the wall.

If you maintain that advice to the un-learned, you will live up to your handle of "krispykritter".
