For several years, I have gotten questions about Christmas Town in Heaven. People are getting confused about reputable people with huge followings with solid principles (with fruit) that seem to have personally experienced Christmas Town and Jesus enjoying Christmas versus people like myself saying the exact opposite. Let’s get down to some basic principles for testing Ascension in Christ experiences.
First and foremost, do not base an Ascension in Christ experience on what some other person says, no matter how reputable. It’s what our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ of Nazareth (i.e., Messiah Yeshua) and the Holy Spirit says that matters. Every person – every minister of the gospel – can be off; therefore, we need to do as the Bereans did and test whether something is true, or not, according to His standards. “Now these were more noble-minded then those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so” (Acts 17:11 NASB).
We each need to personally research whether our Ascension in Christ experience aligns with Scripture. Even Satan ascends to accuse the brethren, so be careful to make sure that ascended experiences line-up with the Word of God. “Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them” (Job 1:6 NKJV). Ana Méndez Ferrell tells us that the first step to victory is: “to determine in our hearts and to let the devil know that we live and depend 100 percent on God’s Word, which is infallible, all-powerful, unlimited and eternal. … We confront Satan successfully only when we know … that heaven and Earth will pass away but that God’s Word will never pass away.”
I have researched “Christmas” both scripturally and historically for 20 years, and I can assure you that Christmas is NOT endorsed by the Word of God. My book SANTA-TIZING: What’s wrong with Christmas and how to clean it up is a result of 10 years of full-time study in this regard, which I wrote with love and the reverential fear of the Lord, because of a vow I made to Yeshua’s face. Refer to http://wp.me/p158HG-4E and http://wp.me/p158HG-kH .
I have also wrote a couple articles about the Christmas Town subject,” if you are interested:

 HEAVEN DOES NOT CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS. NEITHER DID JESUS WHILE HE WAS ON EARTH => https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2016/12/04/heaven-does-not-celebrate-christmas-neither-did-jesus-while-he-was-on-earth/
One other thing to ponder in regard to Christmas is ask yourself and ask Messiah Yeshua why most believers strive to do what Jesus did in all areas of our lives, except when it comes to Christmas. While Jesus walked on earth, He celebrated Hanukkah, not Christmas => https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2015/12/02/yeshua-celebrated-hanukkah-not-christmas/. We would do well to remember that Hanukkah actually celebrates the overthrow of the Antichrist’s idol of Christmas on God’s Altar (His people’s heart).
Before, during or after you test whether an Ascension in Christ experience lines up with Scripture, you can ask Messiah Yeshua how He personally feels about it. We all will have to personally give an account for what we have done in our life: “And behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to give every man according to his work shall be” (Revelation 22:12 KJV). Becoming a precious part of His pure and spotless Bride will cost us everything. All for Jesus. Our precious Jesus will be plainly seen and understood through His Bridal Company of Crucified Ones. So, ask Yeshua. Ask Him about Christmas. Ask Him: “How do You truly feel about Christmas?” Then, intently focus on Him and wait for His answer. Here’s a couple helpful hints. In order to not hear the idols of one’s own heart, please lay down all your personal desire on God’s Altar to truly hear His heart. Also, be sure to ask His perfect will, not His permissive will. A permissive will question like “Can I celebrate Christmas?” will always result in “yes”; because worship (i.e., celebrating Christmas) is not about salvation, it’s about eternal rewards and the pure and spotless Bride of Christ.
The goal of Ascension in Christ is oneness. Oneness with the Messiah; and thus, the Father, is accomplished by becoming one with Him first. It’s only when the Messiah’s Body (you and I) holds fast to the Head – Messiah Yeshua – that we can come in to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God unto a perfect man… One New Man in the Messiah. It not about what this person thinks or experiences, or what that person thinks or experiences. It’s about Messiah Yeshua who is called the “Word of God” (Revelation 19:13).
I pray that we all speak the truth in love, so we may all grow up into Him in all things, which is the Head, even Christ (Ephesians 4:15) until we come “unto measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:13).
Give em heaven!!!
