The pretty wrapping around Xmas presents is like the pretty lies told about the Xmas story. The gifts inside the Xmas presents maybe nice, but the truth inside the real Xmas story is very far from nice and much, much worse than naughty. The truth about this pagan holiday is down right evil.
Xmas or Christmas, as it so called, was named as a rouse to deceptively connect it to Christ. The REAL Messiah, Yahshua [Yah is Salvation – all Biblical Hebrew names have distinct meanings – Unlike the name Jesus which has NO Hebrew meaning],
Yahshua (Christ) directed His followers to honor his death, not his birth! Passover is in kept in honor of his death and the great sacrifice that he made for us!
Luke 22:18-20 “For I [Yahshua] say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come. And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.“
Yahshua never instructed us to honor a decorated tree, reindeer, elves, or a mythological god called Santa. He did though, warn us NOT to blindly follow after man’s tradition and break YAH’s commandments!
Matthew 15:3 But he [Yahshua] answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?
Keeping Xmas is keeping of man’s pagan traditions, instead of keeping God’s Laws.
