I have heard people repeatedly say that Hanukkah has nothing to do with Christmas, but that is simply not the case. Hanukkah is all about overthrowing a polluted sacrificial system instituted in God’s Temple that centers around sun god worship, which is essentially Christmas. Throughout antiquity all pagan sun gods’ birthdays have been celebrated on the ancient winter solstice – December 25th. This is the exact day that the Anti-Christ prophesied by Daniel erected a pagan sun god statue on God’s Altar defiling it. Today, it is the same day that most Christians offer up the same pagan sun god deity in their hearts without knowing its origins. Your heart is God’s Altar where the ultimate battle for purity is being fought.
Yeshua did not celebrate His birth – Christmas. He celebrated Hanukkah, which commemorates the overthrow of Christmas – pagan sun god worship. Today most Christians are actually doing what the first Antichrist did and calling it true worship.
We can claim that we are truly worship Yeshua through Christmas, but like the Golden Calf, He sees to the roots of our self-proclaimed feast dedicated to Jehovah (Exodus 32:5). The first recorded evidence of a supposedly “Christian” Christmas is found in 336 AD during the time of the world-dominating corrupt Constantine. My guess is that this is about the same time the menorah miracle was instituted to get people off the holiness trail. BTW – His shekinah (dwelling presence) glory literally requires holiness. The most immediate predecessor of today’s Christmas Day celebration was originally Mithra’s Winter Festival celebrated on the ancient winter solstice Dec 25th. The Catholic Encyclopedia credits Mithra’s Winter Festival (also called “The Nativity” or “The Nativity of the Sun” or “The Nativity of the Unconquered Sun”) as claiming strong responsibility for the December 25th date.
Christians can say that your Christmas worship is not pagan sun god worship (idolatry) and believe it to the hilt, but understand that He will have the last say. This is not a salvation issue. It is about eternal rewards and being part of His Bride. God will only attach Himself to things like Him: “And what agreement has the Temple of God with idols? For you are the Temple of the Living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people” (II Corinthians 6:16 NKJV).
