The Winter Solstice transports the world into a seemingly timeless cycle that’s a living piece of ancient culture – an authentic Yuletide atmosphere. It appears to be the crowning of the year. It’s an expression of deep-seated loyalty and worldwide unity. People seem to be linked together by big hearts and a common love. Almost nothing can quench the desire to do the right thing by Christmas. It’s impressive in its scope and association where a set of bonds has its participants nostalgically looking homeward and to one another. Many people believe that Christmas embodies everything that is good. There’s a momentary impression that things are simply right with the world, evidenced by the avalanche of charitable giving, well wishes, and generosity of the soul. How could anyone in their right mind be opposed to such a glorious occasion? Yet, every single one of us experience various distasteful fruits of this season and wonder, at least occasionally, whether it’s all that we have cracked it up to be.
Did you know that YULE is probably the oldest winter festivals in the world, which celebrates the winter solstice and the return of the sun? The Cambridge News reports that a pagan witch believes more people than ever will mark the winter solstice in their little shire today, because world-weary Brits are turning back to the ancient religion in droves. (http://www.cambridge-news.co.uk/News/Yule-love-it-Pagan-witch-believes-more-people-than-ever-will-mark-the-winter-solstice-across-Cambridgeshire-today-20131221055838.htm#ixzz2o9714kqR). My 15 years of Christmas watching attest to seeing a pagan revival, but most people have lost track of the ancient origins of YULE.
Wikipedia states: “Yule or Yuletide (“Yule time”) is a religious festival observed by the historical Germanic peoples,” which is true, but it’s genesis goes back even further… all the way back to Babylon and the Tower of Babel. In the ancient Chaldean language of Babylon, the word YULE is the name for an infant or a little child. Therefore, the very name by which Christmas is also known – Yule Day or the Yuletide Season – is literally linked to its Babylonian beginning.
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 the Winter Solstice, which in antiquity equated to the date of December 25th. Part of the birth celebration of the original Babylonian Queen’s son consisted of bringing in a Yule Log on December 24th. The Yule Log symbolized the first earthly king — Nimrod — being cut down in the prime of his life and in the height of his power; then he was cut into pieces, and burned. There’s also an ancient picture of an evergreen tree springing up out of the Yule Log, which was supposed to symbolize Nimrod – the original sun god – coming back to life in his son Tammuz. 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.
December 25th was designated the highest holy day of the pagan year, because it was originally associated with the Babylonian Mother-Child cult. Still today, one of the eight Wiccan (i.e. Pagan) holidays is called YULE. The southernmost descent of the sun on YULE or the Ancient Winter Solstice was said to portray the death of Nimrod while the coming back of the sun portrayed his rebirth.
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 today. As recently as the 19th century, bringing the Yule Log in was as much a part of Christmas as putting up an evergreen tree is today. Since Babylon (specifically Chaldea) was the primordial center of sorcery, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that everything to do with Yule Logs was fraught with pagan rituals and superstition. Please see http://wp.me/p158HG-iX .
The Yule Log tradition tapped into the same root as Halloween, as superstitious people told ghost stories as they futilely tried to scare evil spirits away. Has anyone else noticed that Christmas and Halloween merchandise have been mixed together for years? The YULE’s clever combination of Christmas and Halloween could have been a wild ride at Disney’s “Nightmare Before Christmas.”
Today, the Yule Log has transformed itself into something sweet, just like the other Christmas traditions made into a Victorian image in the early 19th century. The French Christmas Cake is rolled up and decorated to look like a Yule Log. Christians would do well to remember that part of the idolatrous mother-child worship consisted of the burning of logs, pouring out libations, and the making of cakes for the Babylonian Queen of Heaven (Jer 7:17-18). It’s no secret what YHWH thinks of these forms of worship (Jer 7:17-20; 44:20-30).
While the pagan mother-child cult (portrayed as a mother and infant) has been active since Babel, it is easily documented that this idolatrous worship did not enter the church until the 3rd century. General buy-in for the pagan Christmas (i.e. Winter Solstice), magically made Christian by a man-made decree, did not happen until the 4th century. The first recorded evidence of “Christmas” actually taking place on Dec 25th isn’t found until the time of Constantine in 336 AD, and in 379 AD Mithra’s Winter Solstice Festival was officially assimilated into the church calendar. The Catholic Encyclopedia admits that the pagan sun god’s birth celebration – Mithra’s Nativity, sometimes called “The Nativity of the Unconquered Sun” – has strong claim on our December 25th date.

Biblical students should note that the Hebrews were taken captive into Babylon for their disobedience concerning sun worship. I believe that most Christians today have also been taken captive into that Babylonian place of carnality and sensuality… the place of mixture, confusion, and corruption. Can you hear the wind blowing? Can you hear Him calling? Won’t you come out of Babylon and lay down Christmas, so you can be part of His glorious pure and spotless Bride?

* This is a CLARION CALL to His Pure & Spotless Bride. Yeshua (Jesus) is saying, “The mixture of Christmas grieves My heart. Come out of Babylon and lay down Christmas, for I WILL have a pure and spotless Bride.”
NOTE: I yield to LOVE who is asking that I reveal the darker side of Christmas this season in a series called “THIS IS CHRISTMAS.” Personally, I prefer to focus on the King of kings and His Kingdom.
Warning – This series will shake your man-made and religious traditions to the core, if you are a Christian. If you are not a Christian, it will confirm what you already know deep down inside. I have found when I, as a Christian, admit the historical and Scriptural accuracy as it relates to Christmas, those who are not Christians are pleasantly surprised. They laugh and it creates an open dialogue. When pagans, witches, Hindus, Buddhists, Satanists, etc run into His unconditional love that is joined with a serving of His Truth, I’m seeing walls come down and His light and love illuminating their world.
We will start out with some of the more tame topics. Then strap on your seat belts folks, because it’s a rough roller coaster ride that’s going to take us literally to the depths of hell and to the heights of man building a name and kingdom for themselves.
