In the midst of my family coming out of Christmas, I remember telling Yeshua (Jesus) that Christmas and my tree weren’t idols to me. HIS response: “Just because you believe it’s not an idol, doesn’t mean it’s not. Look at the root.” If you have not heard yet, Christmas’s roots are completely pagan; and it doesn’t matter whether you recognize this fact or not to make it true. Please read  WHERE CHRISTMAS COMES FROM – PART 1 –http://wp.me/p158HG-1t and  WHERE CHRISTMAS COMES FROM – PART 2 – http://wp.me/p158HG-2m.
Most believers think we can compromise with Christmas right now, but the LORD has taken me to the future where it is dead and HE is solely being exalted without Christmas.
Remember that Christmas has been made in the exact same image as the Golden Calf that Aaron made, which is the quintessential picture of idolatry. Please check out http://wp.me/p158HG-kH, and Christmas is the same idol that the first Anti-Christ defiled God’s Altar with. It’s of utmost importance that Bridal Hearts understand this, so please check out http://wp.me/p158HG-Gn. There are two immediate predecessors to Christmas. One is the worship of the sun god of the Anti-Christ, which PART 2 of WHERE CHRISTMAS COMES FROM details.
You and I are the temple of God (I Cor 6:19), and our hearts are His altars. Therefore, when the first Anti-Christ (prophesied by Daniel) set up a sun god idol (i.e. Christmas) on God’s Altar on Dec 25th and sacrificed a pig to that image, it foretells of the even greater abomination that Yeshua spoke of in Matthew 24:15 NKJV: “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand).” Please refer to http://wp.me/p158HG-Gi . BTW – This is what Yeshua celebrated during Hanukkah – the overthrow of “Christmas” on God’s Altar, which caused the Abomination of Desolation to stand proudly in one’s soul (John 10:22-23).
When we search the whole counsel of Scripture in this regard, we come up with a disturbing revelation of the Abomination of Desolation. Conveniently, Yeshua, as the embodiment of the Word of God (Rev 19:13), connects the Abomination of Desolation in Matthew 24:15 to the number of the beast in Revelation 13:18 by saying “let him who has understanding.” The spirit of understanding is key to unlocking this Mystery of Iniquity (2 Thess 2:7), which by the way is directly connected to “Mystery, Babylon the Great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth” (Rev 17:5).
The Mystery of Iniquity happens in the end days where there’s a falling away, and that man of sin within you and me is revealed: “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition” (2 Thess 2:3KJV). First, allow me to point out that all of Scripture can be applied personally. Additionally, if you think you can’t be deceived, you already are; because it’s very easy to “go there.” Bridal Hearts are always humble and teachable willing to look at themselves, and let His righteous judgments rightly divide His truth in any situation. May I point out what may appear obvious, but I have not heard it spoken about much. You and I will be on one side of the Mystery of Iniquity equation or the other. Believers will either fall away being one of elect that can be deceived or we will have our man of sin revealed – the parts of our carnal nature that still needs to be crucified. When Yeshua calls people to Himself in order to restore us to our pristine state, He left us with the instructions: “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me” (Mark 8:34 NKJV). We are not replacing His cross, but joining Him on it. For us (on this side of the cross), we will walk in the same manner Yeshua did, except He was sinless and that’s our goal; therefore we join Yeshua by taking up the cross of our flesh and following after Him (Matt 10:38). Why all this cross talk? Because the cross of Christ that insists on our permission to crucify our sin nature is God’s sacrificial altar in our heart. The hyper-grace, greasy-grace or radical grace doctrine raging in this hour eliminates this very process.
“Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666” (Rev 13:18 NKJV). The beast or the man of sin has a number. That number is the number of man without God. When we completely magnify man’s enmity towards God, we understand one glaring aspect of this beast. The beast can exist within you and me, because its equivalent to a completely selfish man. The ultimate end-time battle for each one of us is choosing the Kingdom of God or the Kingdom of Self.

II Thessalonians 2:4 tells us that the mark of the falling away and the man of sin is a person’s worship. Feasts are all about worship. Ezekiel 8:16 agrees with this fact. “Son of man, do you see what they are doing, the great abominations… to make Me go far way from My sanctuary? … So He brought me into the inner court of the LORD’s house; and there, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five man with their backs toward the temple of the LORD and their faces towards the east, and they were WORSHIPING THE SUN toward the east” (Ezekiel 8:6,16 KJV). The fourth, and most detestable, practice in His eyes that drives Him far from His sanctuary are people intimately acquainted with God that are shown worshiping the sun. Please refer to http://wp.me/p158HG-Dx. I know you say, like I did, that I don’t worship the sun. Yeshua’s response to that is: ““Just because you believe you are not worshiping the sun, doesn’t mean that you are not. Look at the root.”
