“Son of man, do you see what they are doing … things that will drive Me far from My sanctuary?” (Ezekiel 8:6). Do you see? Do you want to see what drives God from His Dwelling Place – you? Do you want God to simply visit you? Or do you want to dwell with God?
The four idolatrous practices listed in Ezekiel 8:3-5, 9-12, 14, 16 originate in Babylon, and the Bible says that they are detestable to God. All four of these idolatrous practices have to do with pure worship. The fourth and most detestable practice in His eyes that drives Him far from His sanctuary maps to our modern-day Christmas: “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 men with their backs toward the temple of the LORD and their faces toward the east, and they were worshiping the sun toward the east” (Ezekiel 8:16 NKJV). These twenty-five or so men knew and loved the Lord; yet they still grievously bowed down to and worshiped the sun, whether they acknowledged the fact or not.
“About 25 men”… Usually Scripture doesn’t approximate, so what does “about 25” mean? ABOUT 25 is a Bible Code that’s communicating that IT’S ABOUT 25… IT’S ABOUT DECEMBER 25TH. Throughout antiquity, all sun gods across all cultures celebrated the sun gods’ birthday on the ancient winter solstice – December 25th – before the Roman shift in time. The Catholic Encyclopedia even documents that The Nativity or Mithra’s Winter Festival has a strong claim on our December 25th date. Never mind the fact that Constantine had the Vatican built atop the hill where the Mithras cult worshiped the sun. History records that 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 the altar, and bow down to worship the rising sun.
Our Modern-day Christmas has two immediate predecessors:
 Christmas Day – Mithra’s Winter Festival call “The Nativity” or “The Nativity of the Sun,” or “The Nativity of the Unconquered Sun” (i.e. Sol Invictis)
 Christmas Season – Roman Saturnalia, which was the worship of pagan god Saturn. Did you know that the Golden Calf that Aaron fabricated represented the divinity of the ancient Chaldean God Saturn? Christmas is the Golden Calf.
The pagans in the fourth century recognized their own solar cults in the church’s adoption of the Nativity of the Unconquered Sun (Mithra’s Winter Festival). They recognized the church assimilation of their pagan practices in the orienting cathedrals to the east, worshiping on “sun day,” and celebrating the birth of the sun god deity at the Winter Solstice.
Yeshua told me: “Christmas will be the golden calf of America,” which means it’s idolatry in His eyes. The Lord has given each of us the responsibility to prepare a place for Him: “When He appears, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is. Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure” (1 John 3:2-3). His shekinah glory cannot dwell where there is idolatry; therefore, His dwelling presence cannot, and will not, coexist with this golden calf we call Christmas. Idolatry is the crux that determines whether His shekinah glory will merely visit His people or dwell among them… and it is essential to lay down all idolatry to take on your cherubic nature, like Enoch did. If it’s your heart-of-hearts to participate in the fullness of God’s glorious Melchizedek and Bridal companies, you will have to pass through this fire.
The four abominations in Ezekiel chapter 8 that drive God’s Dwelling Presence far from His sanctuary actually map to the four faces of God (Melchizedek). To the degree that we compromise with the four abominations is the degree that we don’t operate in the fullness of the Cherubim Classification of the Order of Melchizedek.
Christmas Day is rooted in the sun god worship of Mithra (Mithraism). It is not a coincidence that the centerpiece of every Mithraeum was a sculptor of Mithras killing a sacred bull. The Worship of Mithra compromises the face of the ox – the Father – which the Cherubim (Corporate Order of Melchizedek) is supposed to operate in. The Pattern Son – Yeshua – descended and ascended to take captivity captive. Each Melchizedek Priest will have to bring this Christmas Worship issue before the Lord when they descend into the throne within, then once rectified they can ascend to re-establish the Face of the Ox (Father God) to be made whole.
Christmas is the ultimate crux for God’s Dwelling Presence that will determine if you will take on your cherubic nature, or not. And… you get to choose. In the Third Book of Enoch, we are told that the splendor of His Shekinah was on earth until the time of the generation of Enosh when they erected idols in every quarter of the world and brought bought down THE SUN, the moon, planets and constellations and placed them before their idols.
We know that the manifest dwelling presence of God (Shekinah) left the Christian church when the pagan holidays were assimilated into it. Historical proof is seen in the departure of daily miracles from among them. Scriptural proof is spelled out in Ezekiel 8-11.
