JESUS WEPT

Cry by Irina Rempel
Have you ever contemplated the shortest verse in the Bible: “Jesus wept” (John 11:35)? Have you ever considered what makes Jesus wept? Have you ever intently focused on Him and asked Him?

I had a personal face-to-face epiphaneous encounter with Yeshua in 1998. He came to me weeping, as Messiah Yeshua told me that “The mixture of Christmas grieves My heart.” As I reeled at His Presence and this earth-shattering revelation with my Christmas Tree in the next room, He continued: “Come out of Babylon and lay down Christmas, for I will have a pure and spotless Bride.” Yeshua strongly emphasized “I will.” (Refer tohttp://wp.me/p158HG-kH and http://wp.me/p158HG-4E).

A dear friend in the UK who loves Jesus to the max decided to find out for herself. Esther focused intently on the faces of Father, Yeshua and the Holy Spirit and asked: “What do you REALLY, REALLY think about Christmas?” The Father told Esther: “Ask Jesus, as it’s to do primarily about Him.” So, Esther laid down her own personal desires and focused intently again, but this time she zeroed in solely on Yeshua. Esther desperately sought Yeshua three times: “How do you feel about Christmas, Jesus?” as she kept staring in His beautiful face. When suddenly, Yeshua walked toward Esther and gave her a kiss; and then, He buried His face in Esther’s shoulder and sobbed. He sobbed and sobbed and sobbed!

What if the very thing we think celebrates Yeshua, actually grieves Him?

The shortest verse in the Bible “Jesus wept” is an invitation to personally connect to the One that we say we love – Yeshua – in the place where He weeps. Will you allow yourself to see Him as He really is? Will you allow yourself to be moved in your spirit, even be greatly disturbed, as He is/was (John 11:33)?

In this Kingdom Day, resurrection life is coming to the forefront and manifesting, which minimally requires His people to sees what grieves His heart and come out of agreement with the things that do. I will write more on this later. For now, just know that the mature head of the Body of the Messiah – Yeshua – cannot and will not connect to anything that it not like Him. Forget about your traditions. Forget about paradigms and opinions. Forget about social pressure. Forget about the intoxicating emotional yuletide cocktail. Forget about everything, except knowing Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His suffering (Phil. 3:10).

Will you share in the fellowship of His suffering by looking intently into Yeshua’s eyes and asking Him (like Esther did): “How do you feel about Christmas?” It’s literally one of the most important questions you can ask Him that’s related to you personally manifesting resurrection life. Here’s to this mortality taking on immortality!

Give em heaven!!!

HAPPY BIBLICAL NEW YEAR!

Faroe Islands Total-Solar-Eclipse-2015

Did you know that there is only one New Year (i.e., Rosh Hashanah) mentioned in Scripture? It is found in Ezekiel 40:1 when Ezekiel honored and spoke of God’s New Year – the first of Abib (Aviv or Nisan). Please allow me to emphasize this critical point: Scripture’s only mention of Rosh Hashanah corresponds to the only New Year that God set up in Scripture, the first of Abib in March/April. Today is that day, so HAPPY BIBLICAL NEW YEAR everybody (Rosh Chodashim)!!!

It was not until 170 years (or so years) after the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) rose from the dead that the current Rosh Ha Shanah celebrated by Judaism and Messianics came about in the fall of the year to replace Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets). In 200 AD, Rosh Ha Shanah came to replace Yom Teruah in the Mishnah, which later got incorporated into the Talmud. The Talmud contains Jewish writings that are a commentary on the Torah (the first five books of the Bible). In other words, they are man’s opinions and man’s traditions.

Both Rabbinical Judaism and Constantine Christianity have traditions of man that are keeping us from fulfilling the Word of God. We need to determine His righteous measuring line in all things, in this case — celebrating His Feasts – Biblical Feasts. Not legalistically, but in a life-giving sense. Just know that any canonized form of the Bible has its limitations and its personal agendas. That’s why we need to stick with the first five books of the Bible for the foundations of our faith, i.e. believing Moses. Yeshua actually tells His people this very thing: “For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?” (John 5:46-47 NKJV).

Having a New Year celebrated in the seventh month of the year (i.e., autumn) comes from Babylon; therefore it’s a Babylonian tradition to celebrate a New Year for Years in the seventh month. Nehemia Gordon wrote an excellent piece on this “Yom Teruah – How the Day of Shouting Became Rosh Hashanah” – http://www.karaite-korner.org/yom_teruah.shtml: The Babylonians used to have a lunar-solar calendar very similar to the Biblical calendar. The result was that Yom Teruah often fell out on the same day as the Babylonian New Years festival known as “Akitu”. Akitu fell out on the first day of Tishrei as well as six months later on the first of Nisan. That’s right! To make matters more confusing the Babylonians celebrated Akitu – New Years – twice a year. Talk about confusing! (I see some Tower of Babel fingerprints here!) The 1st of Tishrei coincided with Yom Teruah on the 1st day of the Seventh Month. The fact that the Jews had started calling the Seventh Month by the Babylonian name Tishrei paved the way for turning Yom Teruah into a Jewish Akitu. At the same time the Rabbis did not want to adopt Akitu outright, so they Judaized it by changing the name of Yom Teruah (Day of Shouting) to Rosh Hashanah (New Years).

If you have not been told, the Messiah’s Bride will have nothing to do with Babylon. Babylon is all about mixture and confusion. It mixes the holy with the profane, and causes what is pure and spotless in His eyes to be tainted.

Let all Bridal Lovers of YHVH lay down our agendas and traditions on God’s Altar, so we can each make that “offering by fire to the LORD” that Leviticus 23:25 prescribes. Let the All-Consuming Fire’s measuring line of His Word burn up all traditions of men that keep us in Babylon and keeps us from keeping the commandments of God that those who love Him will fulfill (Mark 7:7-9,13; John 14:15; 15:10; 1 John 5:2; 2 John 1:6; Rev 14:12; 18:4).

So not only is today a fantastic New Year that Biblically coincides with a new month on a Biblical Sabbath; but today is the day where Bridal Hearts are putting away all the tradition of men to become ONE with the Way, and the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6). One of His other names is the Word of God (Rev 19:13).

Behold, all thing are truly new, as the total solar eclipse on Nisan 1 (Abib 1 or Aviv 1) proclaims. Significantly there were actually three rare celestial events on Friday, March 20 2015 – the day sundown marks our Biblical New Year. Not only did some areas of the world get plunged into total darkness due to the total solar eclipse, but there was a supermoon as well as the spring equinox. A supermoon happens when a full moon or new moon does its closest fly-by of the earth, making it look bigger that it normally does. The spring equinox refers to the time of the year when day and night are of equal duration. It’s very momentous that there were three signs in the heavens at the same time. Three is the first number in our numeric system that creates a structure, or a space, or a gateway for another dimension. Behold, the Lord Himself does new things this new year – His New Year!!!

May the only One who is worthy – the Ascended Most High God – be praised!

Happy New Year Pure-Hearted One!
L’shana tov!

CREATED AS UNLIMITED VS FATHER TIME

time father - saturn

When believers accept Jesus (Yeshua) as our Lord and Savior, we say that Jesus has been put in our heart. In other words, eternity has been put in our heart. Technically, eternity was not put in our hearts due to salvation, because eternity has already been set in the heart of every person made in God’s own image (Genesis 1:26-27; Ecclesiastes 3:11). Every human being has been created as unlimited, just like our Heavenly Father, Yeshua and the Holy Spirit. “Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image” (Genesis 1:26 NASB). We just haven’t actualized this reality on earth, as it is in heaven, yet, where this mortality takes on immortality.

We need to understand that accepting the sovereign gift of salvation of Yeshua’s sacrifice on the Cross in reality activates the incorruptible seed of eternity set in a person’s heart from the beginning.

So, why would you or I want to remain tethered to the fallen world once our eternal unlimited reality has become activated? You may believe that you are only tethered to the True Messiah Yeshua, but understand that our celebrations (i.e., worship practices) reveal this actuality, or not.

Since the worldwide winter celebration called New Year is upon us, let’s examine the limited concept and world of Father Time. The celebration of the New Year’s Day on January 1st and New Year’s Eve on December 31st comes from Babylon, flows through Greece and Rome and culminates in our modern-day drunken extravaganza. The pagan gods of time do the same, culminating in today’s Father Time.

The mythological figure of Father Time is based upon earlier pictures of Saturn, including symbols of the scythe and hour-glass. The prophet Amos speaks against those people who worship Saturn instead of the Creator who made the Pleiades and Orion (Amos 5:8).

Understand that Father Time and Father Christmas (Santa Claus) are both rooted in the worship of the ancient Chaldean god Saturn. Reverend Alexander Hislop’s book The Two Babylons records: The original name of Rome was “Saturnalia,” the city of Saturn, the city on seven hills where the Roman god Saturn formerly reigned. The whole of Italy was long after called by his name being commonly called “The Saturnian Land.” On the Capitoline hill, the image of Saturn, the formerly great Chaldean god, had been erected as a great high place of Roman worship when the Pagan Roman Emperors laid claim to the title pontifex maximus. The pontifex maximus existed in Rome from the earliest of times and was modeled after the head Pontiff at Babylon. Hislop plainly points out that Saturn is another name for Satan.

In my book SANTA-TIZING, I write extensively about the Roman Saturnalia (Saturn Worship), which is the immediate predecessor of our modern-day Christmas season. Not only is the Roman Saturnalia one of the founts of Christmas, but its Saturn Worship is also the origins of the Golden Calf that Aaron made (Exodus 32:4). When Aaron fashioned his golden calf, there was an ancient and automatic connection to the great Chaldean god Saturn. For more details, check out http://wp.me/p158HG-2m  or http://wp.me/p158HG-kH .

Please do your own research. I have greatly simplified things in this article in order to help us better understand that the worldwide celebrations of Christmas and New Year’s come from Babylon and tethers practitioners to the fallen world (i.e., the demonic control of spacetime) through tethering us to the False Messiah (Mithra) and the Black Cube (Saturn). Please refer to https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/11/07/festive-tethers-to-space-time/.

Saturnalia itself developed from the older rituals of midwinter (i.e., the winter solstice) and goes all the way back to Babylon in the ancient land of Mesopotamia, where the midwinter king’s (initially Tammuz) birthday was celebrated on December 25. The Saturnalia was said to be a reenactment of the happy age when Saturnus reigned the earth as its first king. Take your pick. In the natural realm, the earth’s first king was the mighty one Nimrod, in the spiritual realm this equates to Satan (i.e., Saturn). Gladiators fought to the death in Saturnalia funeral games. Today, the ancestor of the worship of Saturn has death as its fruit too. The Christmas season is known as the heart attack season in hospitals. It is also known for having the highest suicide risk of the year.

Several sources say that Saturnalia was a seasonal festival, which began in the middle of December continuing until January first. I have adopted this definition to simplify our understanding, but in actuality, by the fourth century the Romans celebrated three pagan festivals: the Saturnalia, Sol Invictus Mithra (December 25th birthday of the solar god called “The Nativity”) and the January Kalends.

The January Kalends was a New Year’s party. Today, Western civilization still follows the Kalends’ tradition of singing and heavy drinking on New Year’s Eve. A fourth century writer, Libanius, describes the Roman January Kalends: “The impulse to spend seizes everyone. . . . People are not only generous towards themselves, but also towards their fellow-men. A stream of presents pours itself out on all sides . . . The Kalends festival banishes all that is connected with toil, and allows men to give themselves up to undisturbed enjoyment.”

Even though I don’t emphasize the January Kalends much in my book SANTA-TIZING, please note that the gift-giving tradition connected to this ancient Roman New Year’s festival still existed in New York City when Christmas was forged into its modern image in the 1820s. The overwhelming element of our modern Christmas—shopping—was transported into America’s renewed image of Christmas via merchants and the Americanized Santa Claus tradition. It’s not merely a coincidence that the Temple of Saturn in the Roman Forum used to house the state’s treasury.

By the way, the January Kalends also has primordial roots that reach back into Babylon’s twelve-day New Year’s festival (i.e., Akiti) coupled with the magical appeal of its December sun god birth observance. Christmas acts like a homing device or talisman that never fails to point us back to the sensual place where mixture is its modus operandi. Christmas’s homing signal draws people together, reminding us to look not just to our immediate friends and family, but back toward Babylon.

The Yuletide season is the high tide for the year when the world is of one mind. The people of the earth are busy building a tower by our own desires and design, to get for ourselves what we believe is a slice of heaven. Remember that the Babylonian “land of merchants” status is exemplified by: harlotry, a continual lust for more, disdain for frugal spending, and shrines at the beginning of every street and in the high place of every town square. Refer to http://wp.me/p158HG-jF. 

Although there is quite a bit of confusion, the Akiti celebrated during Babylon’s New Year and the birthday celebration for Tammuz on December 25 appears to have merged and morphed into our modern-day Christmas and New Year season via the Roman Saturnalia and the January Kalends.

Christmas and New Year celebrations are both rooted in the honor and worship of Saturn (Satan). It’s not mere happenstance that Saturn is defined as the Roman god of time as well as agriculture. “He . . . shall intend to change times and law . . .” (Daniel 7:25 NKJV).

This is not the most ancient path of the Ancient of Days; but the path of antiquity, which glorifies man and feeds his flesh. Materialism, sensual gratification, and carnal pleasure, readily apparent at Christmas and the January New Year celebrations, cannot, and do not, satisfy one’s soul, for these vices are earthly and sensual. It leaves people lusting for more as the manic shopping of December twenty-sixth attests. The kingdom of God is in direct opposition to the kingdom of self. How will the Church be able to stand before God justifying our Babylonian practices and our Greek mind-sets? Instead of time being sanctified as God designed and desires, it became triggers for idolatrous behavior, and shows us a worldly pattern for assimilating God’s people into pagan practices and thus corrupting God’s priesthood, who are supposed to be holy, with customs associated with idols.

Let the truth of the True Messiah set us free! Let us worship Him His ways, as articulated in God’s Word!  The Biblical New Year is in March/April – the first of Aviv/Nisan => https://santatizing.wordpress.com/…/happy-biblical-new-year/.

BLAZING NEW WINE OF HANUKKAH (BRIDAL RESTORATION OF DNA)

Blazing New Wine

Not only is there blazing new wine within Hanukkah that’s key to the divine restoration of the Bride’s DNA, but it literally portrays a profound picture of the Church becoming His pure and spotless Bride. In fact, without fulfilling the prophetic picture of Hanukkah in our own lives, we cannot be part of His Pure and Spotless Bride. Yeshua (i.e., Jesus) risked His own life during Hanukkah to perform a miracle that put an exclamation point to proving that He is the Messiah. What is He now requiring of His Bride to prophetically fulfill in our day? Sapphire Throne Ministries’ latest book contains these crucial keys for everyone becoming a precious part of His Pure & Spotless Bride.

Come! Let’s embark on the greatest passionate adventure of our lives where we will be wildly abandoned to His beautiful Altar Dance. Let’s travel back to the future into the very bull’s eye of God’s Kingdom, as we re-live the events of the first Hanukkah, Yeshua’s celebration of Hanukkah as portrayed in Scripture, and how we can restore these age-old foundations in this Kingdom Day.

NOTE: General guidelines for celebrating Hanukkah and a set of Hanukkah devotions are included.

The Blazing New Wine of Hanukkah:Bridal Restoration of DNA book is available via:

CAN’T DO CHRISTMAS ANYMORE

stairs city

Several have asked me behind the scenes what to do with their heart change. They can’t “do” Christmas anymore, but important members of their family are not there yet.

My answer has been: “Pray for a way out, then take it!” Follow the Lord’s leading. But I’d like to add a couple more important points: Set your face like flint on loving, obeying and pleasing our Beloved first and foremost, and then loving one another. When I was going through this whole process, I would hear: “He who loves father or mother more than Me.”

For some when they prayed, LOVE boiled celebrating Christmas down to: “Don’t mix the holy with the unholy.”

For some when they were totally convicted when they saw Christmas’s connection to the Golden Calf.

For some they heard His cry, “Come out of Babylon, My people…” when they saw that Christmas comes out of the Mystery Religions that flow from Nimrod’s Babylon.

For some they saw Christmas is not a narrow road at all. When they saw that Christmas is so broad that 95-96% of the world celebrates it and all faiths bow at the altar of Christmas, like Freemasonry, they realized what the tinge in their heart was telling them all along. And then to top it off, Freemasonry admits Nimrod is one of the founders of “The Craft.” It was too much for them.

Here’s my own testimony http://wp.me/p158HG-4E, and it always comes back to the simple words that He first shared with me:

“The mixture of Christmas grieves My heart. Come out of Babylon and lay down Christmas, for I will have a pure and spotless Bride.” ~ Yeshua (Jesus)

“Christmas will be the Golden Calf of America.” ~ Yeshua (Jesus)

“For the Lord GOD helps Me, Therefore, I am not disgraced; Therefore, I have set My face like flint, And I know that I will not be ashamed” (Isaiah 50:7 NASB).

“He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it.” (Matthew 10:37-39 NASB).

To Him who sits on the Throne and unto the Lamb be all the honor, glory and power. Now and forever. Amen.

Give em heaven Bridal Hearts!!!

CRYSTAL-CLEAR CONNECTION

Walk Winter

Not only is pure worship and perfect peace part of the treasuries of ice and snow, but so are the mysteries of the crystal-clear connection to the True Messiah Yeshua – the King of Kings.

Yesterday, I shared a profound post about the “Complete Restoration of DNA” – https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2016/12/26/complete-restoration-of-dna/. In it we discuss how the redemption of mankind’s ten shadow strands of DNA are connected to the Ten Copper Chariot Lavers in Solomon’s Temple. The “Chariot” in the “Ten Copper Chariot Lavers” is the Merkabah process where we descend to the Kingdom of God within to facilitate actual transformation by truly examining ourselves to see if the kingdoms of our earth aligns perfectly for the kingdoms of our Lord and His Messiah (Luke 17:21; Ephesians 4:9-10; 1 Corinthians 11:28; Revelations 11:15).

Many people want to purely worship the King of Kings and have their DNA transformed in the same way that Enoch did, but I see few truly willing to look at their current reality by rightly examining themselves in order to become one with the plumb line – Messiah Yeshua. So, let’s camp on this simple, yet profoundly necessary step of examining oneself.

The primary thing necessary for rightly examining oneself in order to be made into the exact image as Yeshua is to fully comprehend that Yeshua is the Word of God. We need to rightly examine our conduct to see if its pure in His eyes, which means that your behavior must align with the frequencies of the Word. Search the scriptures. Be a like the noble Bereans by searching the Scriptures daily to see whether something is perfectly pure and true. NOTE: The Bereans were searching the Scriptures to see what Paul – the man who had third heaven experiences – said was true (Acts 17:11). We should test everything and everyone => https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2018/12/16/testing-ascension-in-christ-experiences/. A crystal-clear connection resonates at the frequency of God’s Golden Streaming Word.

1 Corinthians 11:28 KJV tells us “But, LET A MAN EXAMINE HIMSELF, and so let him eat of THAT BREAD and drink THAT CUP.” This is quite a statement. Our communion with Yeshua is directly connected to how we examine ourselves. Messiah Yeshua reveals that the bread is His body and the wine is His blood. He also connects taking on common union of His body and His blood on a personal level to you and I through our sincere examination of ourselves. Our humble and teachable hearts will cause us to not eat and drink in an unworthy manner. “For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body” (1 Corinthians 11:29 NKJV).

Since there’s so much convoluted stuff out there, my second suggestion is to develop a relationship with Yeshua (Jesus) and ask Him what He did; then research that too. The 1990s WWJD (What Would Jesus Do) movement still has it right. Our pattern son is Messiah Yeshua. Scripture clearly articulates that we must walk in the same manner that Yeshua did (1 John 2:6).

Yeshua only walked one way in the winter. Remember, He celebrated the Biblical Feasts of YHVH. Yeshua celebrated Hanukkah. “Now it was the Feast of Dedication in Jerusalem, and it was winter. And Jesus walked in the temple, in Solomon’s Porch” (John 10:22-23 NKJV). To say or believe anything else is a lie. If you want to get technical about it, Yeshua actually celebrated the overthrow of Christmas on the altar of people’s hearts =>  https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2015/12/02/yeshua-celebrated-hanukkah-not-christmas/.

You say that you want to purely worship the King of Kings. You say that you want to live in a state of perfect peace. You say that you want a crystal-clear connection to the One who loves you always and forever. Then, do what Yeshua did. Walk in the crystal-clear love, joy and peace of His treasuries of ice and snow. Here’s to the look and sound of perfect in His Winter One-Dear-Land!!!

 

Give em heaven!!!

ORIGINS OF CHRISTMAS DAY

25th Dec Witchcraft

Just like Christmas Eve, the origins of Christmas Day are rooted in Babylon. Not only did December 25th mark the ancient Winter Solstice before the Roman shift in time, it also marked the birthday of all pagan sun gods throughout antiquity… beginning with Tammuz of Babylonian fame.

Do your own research.  Recall from yesterday’s “Origins of Christmas Eve” article (https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2018/12/24/origins-of-christmas-eve/) that both ancient and modern pagans embrace the legend that the sun dies and is reborn on the Winter Solstice, which corresponds to Nimrod’s death (c. 2167 BC) and him being reborn as the sun god in Tammuz. One of the ways that they picture this is an evergreen tree springing up into new life from a dead tree stump (Yule Log). This is the most ancient and idolatrous root of Christmas Day.

There was also an Egyptian tree custom performed on Ra’s birthday – December 25th. Joseph AmaHura Riverwind shares: “In Ancient Egypt, they decorated trees during the winter solstice and placed a star of Amun-rah or a golden-winged scarab on the top of it. This was a very well-known practice that the Hebrews would have seen during captivity as well as the decorating of houses with green palms which some consider being an origin point for this practice.”

The Catholic Encyclopedia tells us that Sol was the name of the sun god of the largest pagan religious cult, spanning both the Greek and Roman empires. Tertullian—a father of the church—asserted that Sol was not the Christian’s God. The pagan sun worship of Mithraism, with its god Mithra, had a winter festival called “The Nativity” or “The Nativity of the Sun” or “The Nativity of the Unconquered Sun.” The Catholic Encyclopedia admits that the Nativity of the Unconquered Sun had a strong claim for the responsibility of the date of Christmas. The Roman Emperor Constantine mixed pagan solar customs with “The Way,” in order to appease the culture at the time. Historical evidence shows that Constantine was a devout Mithra worshiper. The Encyclopedia Americana says that by the fifth century, the Roman Catholic Church ordered that the birth of Christ be forever observed on December 25th, even though this was the day that the old Roman feast commemorated the birth of Sol (Mithra).

Another way to track the roots and fruits of Christmas Day is to look at the history of the Phrygian cap that Santa Claus wears. Mithra, Tammuz, Chemosh, and Molech all wore the same Phrygian cap as Santa. At the time of the Winter Solstice on ancient calendars (Dec. 25th), they had a public child mass. “Mass” literally means sacrifice in this context. Before the pagan priests stoked up the iron image of “enthroned” Chemosh or Molech with wood and burning pitch, the people participating in the December 25th child mass made long lists of their desires. Then they would recite them to this supposed “god of prosperity” just before they placed their infant children into the red-hot lap of their god with the Phrygian cap.

The Lord our God conveniently left us a clue about what He considers the most detestable practice in His eyes that drives Him far from His sanctuary (you and I). It’s about 25. Check it out!

“And He said to me, ‘Son of man, do you see what they are doing, the great abominations which the House of Israel are committing here, so that I would be far from My sanctuary? But yet you will see still greater abominations. … Then He brought me into the inner court of the LORD’S house. And behold, at the entrance to the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were ABOUT TWENTY-FIVE men with their backs to the temple of the LORD and their faces toward the east; and they were prostrating themselves eastward toward the sun” (Ezekiel 8:6,16 NASB).

 It had become common practice in the fifth century for worshipers entering St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome to turn at the door, put their backs to God’s altar, and bow down to worship the rising sun. Please refer to Ezekiel 8:16 for God’s opinion of this practice. The first recorded evidence of “Christianized” Christmas taking place on December twenty-fifth isn’t found until the time of Constantine in AD 336, which was 11 years after the Council of Nicaea.

 How many times have you seen the Lord approximate in Scripture “ABOUT TWENTY-FIVE”? It certainly isn’t common. It’s a clue. The most detestable practice in God’s eyes that drives Him far from His sanctuary – you and I – is about the 25th of December – Christmas Day =>  https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2015/12/02/its-about-the-25th/.

ORIGINS OF CHRISTMAS EVE

Card - Yle Log - 1862-Yule-Log-Windsor-Castle-King-Henry-VIII

The origins of Christmas Eve are rooted in Babylon. Did you know that part of the birth celebration of the original Babylonian Queen of Heaven’s son – Tammuz – consisted of bringing in a Yule Log on December 24th?

Far and wide, in the realms of ancient paganism, the birth of the son of the Babylonian Queen of Heaven was celebrated at the time of midwinter (i.e., the winter solstice), which in antiquity equated to the date of December twenty-fifth. However, the party started the day before on December twenty-fourth with the bringing in the Yule Log.

There were many rituals and symbols that accompanied the mother-child cult of antiquity (an integral part of religious Babylon) – included was the Yule Log tradition. It is no mere coincidence that the burning of the Yule Log on Christmas Eve was at one time one of the most well-established traditions of Christmas. The Yule Log was such an integral part of Christmas for centuries upon centuries that it’s hard to understand why it’s virtually nonexistent in the United States and the world today. As recently as the nineteenth century, bringing the Yule Log in was as much a part of Christmas as putting up an evergreen tree is today.

The Yule Log originally symbolizes Nimrod being cut down in the prime of his life and in the height of his power; then cut into pieces and burned. The Yule Log ceremony also celebrates the sun and the sun god(s) during the winter solstice – the shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. Notice that the theme of death is connected to the ancient Winter Solstice. This is part of the Mystery of Iniquity connected to “Mystery, Babylon the Great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth” (Revelation 17:5).

Nimrod’s death is commemorated in the Yule log ceremony while ancient legends speak of an evergreen tree springing up into new life from the dead tree stump. This symbology supposedly represents the rebirth of Nimrod in Tammuz. Ancient pagans claimed that the sun died and was reborn on the Winter Solstice, and they equate it to Nimrod’s death and being reborn in Tammuz.

Unbeknownst to most Christians, the evergreen element returns us full circle to Christmas’ original profane root. Today, the ancient idol of a tree is the most common Christmas symbol in America. With much satisfaction, we erect the beautifully adorned images in our homes, businesses, schools, churches, and town squares. In antiquity, a fir, palm, or evergreen tree were used in conjunction with celebrating various pagan sun gods’ birthdays, which fell on the ancient winter solstice—December 25.

Unfortunately, few have kept track of the Babylonian Yule Log ceremony and death being at the roots of Christmas. Whether, we keep track of these facts, or not, we will reap what has been sown until we redeem it in our own lives by coming out of Babylon to not receive her plagues, (Revelation 18:4).

Some of Christmas’s bad fruit can be associated with bruising, like: getting worn down, getting sick, or getting in debt. But some of the bad fruit is much more destructive—heart attacks and suicide—which minimally warrants a more serious inspection of our Christian Christmas. God calls us to be fruit inspectors: “by their fruit you will recognize them” (Matt. 7:20). His Word says, “No good tree bears bad fruit” (Luke 6:43).

Today, the Christmas season is known as the heart attack season in hospitals. It is also known for having the highest suicide risk of the year. Statistically, springtime has the highest suicide rate, but the greatest time for suicide risk is still the winter holiday season. Mental health professionals have been on their toes for years now in an effort to lessen suicides and depression during Christmas.

PURE WORSHIP OF THE MESSIAH’S BRIDE

Aurora Iceberg Campfire in Alaska

While the world celebrates the Winter Solstice today, those who love their Beloved Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) are called to something so much higher and so much more beautiful.

Winter Solstice celebrations began in Babylon with the birth day of the first pagan sun god Tammuz on the ancient winter solstice on December 25th. Pagans still celebrate this original solar deity birth. The most important time of celebration for pagans (i.e., earth worshipers) is the Winter Solstice (Yule, Saturnalia or Midwinter). Yule is the northernmost point of their Wheel of the Year, which is a Witch’s Wheel that’s an annual cycle of seasonal festivals that serves to tether people to earth and earthly things. Although practices vary, pagans who engage the entire Witch’s Wheel (like Wicca) often celebrate all eight festivals, including Yule. Winter Solstice practices vary, but sacrificing, feasting, and gift giving are common elements of Midwinter festivities. Note: At the time of the winter solstice on the ancient calendar, they had a public child mass. “Mass” literally means sacrifice in this context. Please refer to Chapter 5 in SANTA-TIZING for more on this subject. Bringing evergreen sprigs and wreaths of holly, ivy, mistletoe and pine into the home and decorating trees were (and still are) also common during this time. An ancient Babylonian custom was to go out and place a gift on a tree during the Winter Solstice (Dec. 25th) as an offering to Tammuz/Nimrod. Does this sound familiar? It should, because the Winter Solstice is the very root of our modern supposedly “Christianized” Christmas.

The very name by which Christmas is also known—Yule-day or the Yuletide season—is literally linked to its Babylonian origin. Far and wide, in the realms of ancient paganism, the birth of the son of the Babylonian Queen of Heaven was celebrated at the time of Midwinter (i.e., the Winter Solstice), which as we have said, in antiquity equated to the date of December twenty-fifth.

Part of the birth celebration of the original Babylonian Queen of Heaven’s son consisted of bringing in a Yule log on December twenty-fourth. The Yule log symbolized Nimrod being cut down in the prime of his life and in the height of his power, then cut into pieces and burned. The Yule log ceremony celebrated the sun during the winter solstice. The word solstice comes from the word sun, and it means to “stand still” as it appears to do on the shortest day of the year as the sun gets nearest to the southern horizon. The date of December twenty-fifth was designated the highest holy day of the pagan year, because it was originally associated with the mother-child cult. Still today, one of the eight Wiccan/Pagan holidays is called Yule, and it celebrates the shortest day of the year. The southernmost descent of the sun on the ancient calendar was said to portray the death of Nimrod, while the coming back of the sun portrayed his rebirth in Tammuz.

I simply love the earth, which is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof; the world and all that dwell therein (Psalm 24:1). I enjoy communing with nature and the solace it brings. Our Glorious Creator is in all that He has made, and He continually holds it together (Hebrews 1:3). However, we need to be careful that we don’t worship creation rather than the Creator.

Pure worship of the King of Kings untethers us from creation and connects us to the unlimited realm of the Creator Himself while celebrating created things like the sun’s “rebirth” serves to strengthen our tethers to the fallen world and its limited spacetime continuum. Scripture tells us that nature should point us to our invisible Creator: “From the beginning, creation in its magnificence enlightens us to His nature. Creation itself makes His undying power and divine identity clear, even though they are invisible; and it voids the excuses and ignorant claims of these people because, despite the fact that they knew the one true God, they have failed to show the love, honor, and appreciation due to the One who created them! Instead, their lives are consumed by vain thoughts that poison their foolish hearts. They claim to be wise; but they have been exposed as fools, frauds, and con artists— only a fool would trade the splendor and beauty of the immortal God to worship images of the common man or woman, bird or reptile, or the next beast that tromps along” (Romans 1:20-23 VOICE).

Those who have accepted Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) as their Lord and Savior have activated the incorruptible seed of eternity that has been set in man’s heart (Ecclesiastes 3:11), which is the Word of God – Yeshua. Why would you choose to go backwards and become limited again through mixed means of worship?

Let’s lay aside everything that so easily entangles us to simply worship the Messiah and the Father in Spirit and in Truth. If we follow the Biblical marks of time and celebrate Him His ways, we remain untethered from the world. The Messiah’s Bride needs to consider what He considers pure worship, which is actually something simple to ascertain. Let’s follow in the footsteps of our Pattern Son – Yeshua. In the modern vernacular, ask yourself: What Would Jesus Do (WWJD)? Then let the Bible show you.

Two verses in Scripture show Jesus walking. One John declares over Jesus “Behold, the Lamb of God!” (John 1:36). The other reveals Jesus walking in the Temple in portico of Solomon during the Feast of Dedication (i.e., Hanukkah) right after He declares twice that I AM the Door of the sheep (John 10:1, 7) and declares twice that I AM the Good Shepherd (John 10:11, 14) during Hanukkah. Let’s consider what the Word of God tells us about what Jesus did during the winter (John 10:22-23); and then use it to funnel true and perfect worship in His Winter One-Dear-Land. Pure worship of the Messiah’s Bride is the most valuable treasure of ice and snow.

Won’t you come and adore Him by doing what He did?

As a special winter oneder-land treat, please enjoy Sapphire Throne Ministries’ ninth “Revelations From Metatron” Class, which is focused on pure worship, and loving the Lord our God with all our heart, with all our soul, and with all our strength => https://youtu.be/SQIs7UUJEJU. Enjoy!

Give em heaven!!!

BIBLICAL VIEW OF CHRISTMAS MANGERS

Nativity 4

It is extremely significant that at the same time Aaron made an altar to God’s specifications, took the people’s gold and made a golden idol, Moses received the nation’s ketubah (marriage contract), which contained the Ten Commandments. Refer to https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2016/12/17/choose-this-day-the-golden-calf-or-his-marriage-contract/.

Believe it or not, choosing the Golden Calf or the Lord’s Marriage Contract is critical in our searching out the Biblical view of Christmas manger scenes. To help in our assessment, I have taken a couple sections from my book SANTA-TIZING: What’s wrong with Christmas and how to clean it up. Know that most things I write about in this book I have personally struggled with in order to please God fully and wholly:

“Even while these people were worshiping the LORD, they were serving their idols. To this day their children and grandchildren continue to do as their fathers did” (2 Kings 17:41). We need to lay aside our own preconceived notions and ask ourselves: How does Jesus view Himself being depicted as a statue in crèches during Christmas? It may surprise many Christians that some of the crèche fixtures aren’t described in the Bible: the donkey, cows, sheep, and the wise men. Scripture articulates that the Magi came to a house not a manger (Matt. 2:11). If one considers that, historically, the Babylonian statues depicting a Madonna and child were used to facilitate worship to pagan gods, one must ask, what does Jesus really think of those statues of Him lying in a manger? And do my beliefs violate Scripture? “It is a snare for a man to devote rashly something as holy, and afterwards to reconsider his vows” (Prov. 20:25 NKJV).

To accurately answer these important questions, we have to look into the first two commandments of the Ten Commandments with the same viewpoint of Jesus and His first disciples. The first commandment to a Hebrew is to have faith in God’s existence: “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery” (Exod. 20:2). This first commandment appears to be more of a statement than a commandment. Maybe that’s why these words in Hebrew are called the Ten Statements instead of the Ten Commandments. There have been considerable controversies among Jewish scholars over whether the first statement commands belief in God or belief can’t be commanded. Most Jewish authorities agree with the great Jewish philosopher Maimonides that belief in God is not only desirable, but is indeed commanded.

God’s people were taught that if they violated one of the first five commandments, they had sinned against God and they had to reject their belief in God at the outset. “Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him” (Heb. 11:6 NASB). “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery” (Exod. 20:2 NASB) is both a positive command and a simple statement of fact. “I am the LORD your God” announced that He is Israel’s deity and sovereign. Laws are not official until the authority of the One in charge is established and acknowledged. Just think about the first commandment as an opening statement in a treaty (marriage contract) between God and His people.

For years, I was confused over the church saying that the first commandment is: “You shall have no other gods before Me” (Exod. 20:3), and the second is: “You shall not make for yourself a carved image . . .” (Exod. 20:4-5). To me they seemed redundant. Why? Probably because the Hebraic view of our Bible tells us that they are different sections of the same commandment.

Exodus 20:3-6 delineates the second commandment: “You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand [generations] of those who love me and keep my commandments.” The Second Commandment has four separate negative injunctions against idolatry where:

1) A person is forbidden to believe in idols. We are told every Christmas season to believe in the spirit of Christmas, and as Christians we try to personalize this spirit as the Holy Spirit. But it’s not. It’s make-believe. The pagans inform us: “Take the spirit of Christmas himself—Santa Claus, Father Christmas, Saint Nicholas, Old St. Nick, Syre Christemas, Sinter Class—his names are legion and his true origins almost as old as history.” I have noticed over the past several years that whenever anyone mentions believing in the spirit of Christmas, Santa Claus is referenced. The Polar Express movie swept the country during the 2004 Christmas season. All the train tickets that the kids in the movie received spelled out two letters of the word “believe.” The boy who held the only winning “BE” ticket had to first say “I believe” three times before he could receive the first gift of Christmas—a bell from one of Santa’s reindeer. Kids who believe in Santa can hear the bell; but their parents can’t, due to their unbelief. For several years, the annual Fort Collins Symphony Guild’s Christmas concert’s theme has been “Truly Believe,” with its focus on Santa. I know of one family in my son’s grade school who are atheists. They try to fill their spiritual void with at least one belief besides being the best in everything, which is perpetuating the Santa Claus myth so their fifth-grade child can still accept it as true. A Christian should question anything that is based on lies and deceptions, for these vices are not of God’s kingdom.

2) A person is forbidden to make or process idols. “Of what value is . . . an image that teaches lies? For he who makes it trusts in his own creation; he makes idols that cannot speak” (Hab. 2:18).

3) A person is forbidden to worship idols through any of the four forms of divine service, which are:

  • prostration,
  • animal slaughter,
  • bringing offerings, or
  • bringing libations of wine or other liquids to pour upon an altar/item.

4) A person is forbidden to worship an idol by means that is unique to it. For example, the believers of Mercury worshiped it by throwing stones at its statue. What about all of our Christmas traditions? What about our stockings that are hung by the chimney with care? What about our Christmas trees, which are an extension of an ancient Babylonian practice? Etc.

Aaron and the Jewish people of his day were so strongly and grossly sensual, they did not imagine that this image was itself a god nor did they plan to terminate their adoration. They made the golden calf a representation of the true God, whom they intended to worship in and through this image. Remember when you regard Christmas being the golden calf of America that His thoughts are not like ours, nor are His ways like ours (Isa. 55:8). The more I contemplate the manger scenes at Christmas time, the more I see that it is indeed a “golden” commemoration of Christ’s birth. The truth and beauty that Christ came as a babe in a manger does not give us license for it to be set aside for a particular purpose with the literal graven image of Jesus wrapped in swaddling clothes, funneling worship. This concept also applied to the golden calf. The truth and beauty of God bringing His people out of Egypt and taking them to the Promised Land did not justify the creation and worship of the golden calf. It seemed that the Israelites forgot that the Lord already had instituted a festival for His family called Passover for these exact same purposes; and He set it as a permanent or eternal ordinance (Exod. 12:14). Will we follow history in choosing to party with the crowd and their golden calf, or will we choose to party at the wedding feast of the Lamb with the King of Kings?

Christians say Christmas only represents a truth in God’s Word and that the baby Jesus is merely a representation of the Most High, whom we intend to worship in and through this image, not the image itself. As with the golden calf, it is not a sufficient plea that we do not worship the image, but God through the image. A feast said to be a feast to Jehovah is not necessarily as we say. God will be the Judge.
