Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ (Colossians 2:8).
Christmas has nothing to do with Christ. Its origin is pagan and that will not change. THIS MAN MADE TRADITION IS UNGODLY. And whose authority shall we follow? The Roman Catholic church. They are a culture of destruction rooted in wickedness, a hopeless entity that perpetuates vanity, a doctrine of everlasting death, who embrace evil and find no fault in it. Having omitted one “s” from mass, they have deceptively attached it to Christ in an effort to perpetuate a powerless celebration. Are we then to become followers of the dead or the living? I will tell you this much: it is not Christ who is rejoicing in this celebration but Satan. And my conviction is strong because the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of truth is leading me. If any man be in Christ he will not oppose this.
To my beloved in Christ, remember we serve a living God who sees fit to honor the living and not the dead. We are reminded of this in Matthew 22:31 – 32… Have you not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living. Stay in the power and the glory of God. I understand the feeling of loneliness, and trying to associate with the massive. For many are called and few are chosen (Matthew 22:14). The massive is often wrong. And they are wrong (confirmed by the Holy Spirit). And trying to conform to such a celebration should be avoided. If anything, let us take this time to remember Christ our God, bring his teachings to the massive, making a difference. That may mean starting with a friend, a family member, or a stranger. Let us feed the poor and needy, doing what Christ would expect of us. Let us take pleasure in that. Let us be joyful in what is good and not what is evil. And never forget the challenges we will face in this present world. Christ must be the epitome of who we are. He is perfect but we are not. We seek wisdom from God, the perfection of Christ our LORD and Savior. My dear friends, beloved in Christ, in the love of Christ, I beacon all to the Cross, the bountiful grace of God where the redeemed find solace and the redeemer of our souls hung on a tree and take away the curse that was upon us (Galatians 3:13). To him we glory. To him we praise. To him we rejoice. The Christ, the Son of God, the light of this world is glorified in this truth. Let us remind each other of the burden Christ carried on the Cross – the sins of the world, the hopeful glory of God his Father who loves us so dearly that he send his only begotten Son that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16). He loved us first before we love him (1 John 4:19). And this has continued, in that he send the Comforter to comfort us that he may abide with us forever, even the Spirit of truth whom the world cannot receive, because it sees him not, neither knows him: but you know him; for he dwells in you, and shall be in you (John 14:16 – 17). Then why do you desire to conform to the ways of the powerless and the spirit of errors? Let us be reminded that in Christ we stand, on the Rock, and not on the fallacies of this world. This is a good time to offer comfort to the lonely. Just a few spoken words can bring solace, instill hope in Christ, and the everlasting joy that awaits us. Do what you can. Feed the poor; visit the sick, offer prayers, and encouragement. Extend a helping hand. But remember God loves a cheerful giver. Do it with a kind heart because you really care, not to gain respect of person. But to enriched the hope of us in Christ. Let us repent of our sins to God for all the errors we have made. And Christmas must be considered an error of man.
O Father, my God, my blessed hope, to you O LORD my gratitude is without measure. Let the blessed LORD that I love rejoice in his goodness and mercy. Forever and ever, we honor you and praise your righteous and Holy name. We give praises to thy beloved Son, in whom we live. Without measure we glory in him and glorify our LORD and Savior who lives in us and we in him. Amen.
