The origins of Christmas Eve are rooted in Babylon. Did you know that part of the birth celebration of the original Babylonian Queen of Heaven’s son – Tammuz – consisted of bringing in a Yule Log on December 24th?
Far and wide, in the realms of ancient paganism, the birth of the son of the Babylonian Queen of Heaven was celebrated at the time of midwinter (i.e., the winter solstice), which in antiquity equated to the date of December twenty-fifth. However, the party started the day before on December twenty-fourth with the bringing in the Yule Log.
There were many rituals and symbols that accompanied the mother-child cult of antiquity (an integral part of religious Babylon) – included was the Yule Log tradition. It is no mere coincidence that the burning of the Yule Log on Christmas Eve was at one time one of the most well-established traditions of Christmas. The Yule Log was such an integral part of Christmas for centuries upon centuries that it’s hard to understand why it’s virtually nonexistent in the United States and the world today. As recently as the nineteenth century, bringing the Yule Log in was as much a part of Christmas as putting up an evergreen tree is today.
The Yule Log originally symbolizes Nimrod being cut down in the prime of his life and in the height of his power; then cut into pieces and burned. The Yule Log ceremony also celebrates the sun and the sun god(s) during the winter solstice – the shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. Notice that the theme of death is connected to the ancient Winter Solstice. This is part of the Mystery of Iniquity connected to “Mystery, Babylon the Great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth” (Revelation 17:5).
Nimrod’s death is commemorated in the Yule log ceremony while ancient legends speak of an evergreen tree springing up into new life from the dead tree stump. This symbology supposedly represents the rebirth of Nimrod in Tammuz. Ancient pagans claimed that the sun died and was reborn on the Winter Solstice, and they equate it to Nimrod’s death and being reborn in Tammuz.
Unbeknownst to most Christians, the evergreen element returns us full circle to Christmas’ original profane root. Today, the ancient idol of a tree is the most common Christmas symbol in America. With much satisfaction, we erect the beautifully adorned images in our homes, businesses, schools, churches, and town squares. In antiquity, a fir, palm, or evergreen tree were used in conjunction with celebrating various pagan sun gods’ birthdays, which fell on the ancient winter solstice—December 25.
Unfortunately, few have kept track of the Babylonian Yule Log ceremony and death being at the roots of Christmas. Whether, we keep track of these facts, or not, we will reap what has been sown until we redeem it in our own lives by coming out of Babylon to not receive her plagues, (Revelation 18:4).
Some of Christmas’s bad fruit can be associated with bruising, like: getting worn down, getting sick, or getting in debt. But some of the bad fruit is much more destructive—heart attacks and suicide—which minimally warrants a more serious inspection of our Christian Christmas. God calls us to be fruit inspectors: “by their fruit you will recognize them” (Matt. 7:20). His Word says, “No good tree bears bad fruit” (Luke 6:43).
Today, the Christmas season is known as the heart attack season in hospitals. It is also known for having the highest suicide risk of the year. Statistically, springtime has the highest suicide rate, but the greatest time for suicide risk is still the winter holiday season. Mental health professionals have been on their toes for years now in an effort to lessen suicides and depression during Christmas.
