“Merry Christmas” is a common greeting this time of year. When most Christians say it, they believe that they are blessing God and people. What if I told you that history tells us otherwise?
Let’s break down the word “Christmas.” The first syllable is the word “Christ.” It comes from the Greek word “Christos,” and the Hebrew word for “Messiah, which is Yeshua (Jesus).
The second syllable “mas” is a shortened form of the word “mass.” Most people believe it simply means a worship service, but that’s not its primal root. The word ‘missa,” which evolved into the Middle English word “mass,” came from the Greek word “mitere,” which literally means to send or dismiss. Let’s dig a little deeper to understand the Catholic Mass’s Primal Roots.
In the early days, the Eucharistic Service was divided into two parts. Those receiving instruction – catechumens – were only allowed to be there for the first part. Only the faithful who had been baptized could remain for the second part. Thus there were two dismissals spoken in Latin: “Ite misse est” (pronounced “eatta me est”). “Ite misse est” literally means: Go, you are dismissed…
So “missa” came to refer to the dismissal. It’s basically like calling a basketball game – The Buzzer. Later, there was no midway dismissal, and the entire service was called the “missa” or simply “masse” in Middle English. Therefore, the primal root meaning to the greeting “Merry Christmas” means: GO, CHRIST, YOU ARE DISMISSED – or – Christ’s dismissal – or – the Dismissal of Christ.
Ever since I’ve known this history I cannot bring myself to say this annual seasonal greeting, unless it’s merely an explanation of the holiday. I know that whether people acknowledge that the word “Christmas” means the “dismissal of Christ,” or not, this historical fact remains.
Not only does the very tap root of “Merry Christmas” proclaim “Happy Dismissal of Christ,” so does it coincide with the fourth and most detestable abomination in God’s eyes that moves Him far from His sanctuary. We went over this extensively in the first session of THE FEAST. Recording is available => https://vimeo.com/145216167.
I find it interesting that the first Christmas Controversy this year (2015) had to do with a red TO GO cup at Starbucks. What if God is sending a red TO GO message? What if that message is that Christ is taking Himself out of Christmas? Do you think anyone could take Christ out of Christmas if He didn’t allow it? Yeshua has told me for several years now that HE is taking Himself out of Christmas, and the mixture of Christmas grieves His heart.
Know that this “RED TO GO” controversy is a literal signal to all of us that Christ is leaving the building. He is leaving the Christian Institution of Christmas, which comes out of Babylon. That means that His people celebrating Christmas will unfortunately encounter much darkness as well as the plagues of Babylon this year. Won’t you please listen to Yeshua’s precious heart: “The mixture of Christmas grieves My heart. Come out of Babylon and lay down Christmas for I WILL have a pure and spotless bride.”
