I went to PUREGOLD Jr. (at Aguirre Avenue near Presentation of Child Jesus Parish) last Wednesday morning that I heard Christmas Carols or Jingles aired in the whole store too early during the month of September. I saw Christmas decors which attract to the customers displayed to each cashier’s booth.
People think in their minds about 13th month pay, Christmas bonus, buying gifts for the inaanaks (godchildren) or nephews/nieces, to the relatives, families and friends.
I never thought about sadness to remember that my parents who are now residing in Canada while I am here in the Philippines. Here’s my one positive thought: A BORING CHRISTMAS.
The December 25 Christ’s birth is a myth:
Often, the first day of Ha-nukk’ah falls very close to Christmas. The apostate Roman Catholic church in the Fourth Century, CE, combined the pagan Winter Solstice celebration (Usually Dec. 23) and the Saturnalia celebration (The first day of which is Dec. 25) with the numeral borrowed from the Hebrew’s 25th day of Kislev (First day of Ha-nukk’ah) to invent Christmas (Christ’s Mass) on December 25. Supposedly this was to celebrate Christ’s birth, and Roman Catholicism makes no excuses or apologies concerning this invention, brazenly claiming to have “Baptized” paganism.
I would like to give you the true passage that our Lord Jesus Christ was born based in the Holy Scriptures. It was written in Luke 2:1-14 in King James version:
(v.1) And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Cæsar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.
(v.2) (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
(v.3) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
(v.4) And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judæa, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
(v.5) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
(v.6) And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
(v.7) And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
(v.8) And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
(v.9) And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
(v.10) And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
(v.11) For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
(v.12) And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
(v.13) And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
(v.14) Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
I noticed in verse 8 that shepherds were in the field to guard those animals at night. The animals were not inside the manger during Christ’s birth. Therefore, the birth of Christ was NOT in the season of winter.
Christmas means Christ’s Mass. Christmas is a mere invention resulting from the religious compromise of authentic Christianity with ancient pagan traditions, folklore and myths! That kind of myth is a BIG LIE from the Roman Catholic Church.
Jesus really hated traditions. It’s written in Mark 7:7-8 in NASB: `BUT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING AS DOCTRINES THE PRECEPTS OF MEN.’ Neglecting the commandment of God, you hold to the tradition of men.”
Do you lose the value of Christ in your life due to vain, yearly traditions and worldly materials?
I hope for those blog readers will really hate me but I am praying for them to open their hearts and minds for the truth in the Scriptures. God bless everyone.
