Christmas gets it origin from Saturnalia since it was a pagan festival practiced before the Roman Catholic Church came into existence. Then they took that holiday and made it a "Christian celebration" while letting it remain pagan so they would not lose the pagans they brought into their church. In other words, they had pagans who joined their 'Church" and NEVER repented. And that would be impossible for God's true church. If a person does not want to be freed from sin, he does NOT want to be born again. God said in Revelation that he is going to require the blood of the saints at their hands They killed millions in the dark ages and are still killing Christians today when they can get by with it mainly overseas especially in Italy, the so called home of God. The pope is "Alter Christus", another Christ, since he believes he stands in the place of Christ/God on earth. The only one who takes the place of Christ on earth would be the Holy Spirit since he is teaching and leading unto all truth like Jesus was doing when he walked this planet.
To put it another way, the Father was preeminent in the old covenant, Jesus was the one who walked between the two covenants and he started the new covenant by his death on the cross. He had to shed his blood to start the new covenant. The lambs or other sacrifices were types in the old testament of the coming of the final real offering for sin. the Lord Jesus Christ. Without the shedding of blood there is no remission or forgiveness of sins. Heb. 3:22 says. "22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission." NOW the Holy Spirit is leading and teaching in these new covenant times. Even though the triune God is present in all three time periods, one stands out more than the other two in the three time periods.
Now a little more on the other Satanic holiday known as Christmas. Many Christians believe this is of God . God did say that his people are destroyed for lack of knowledge and it really applies to this holiday as it did Easter.. Christmas was made Jesus' birthday since many false, make believe, gods were born on Christmass and Jesus is jut one of many gods of our choosing.
Here are names of "Gods" throughout history that were said to have been born by a virgin on 25th December.

THINK about this long and hard and if you are a Christian playing with this holiday you will wish you NEVER heard of Christmas or Dec 25th, ; the winter soltice or Easter and the vernal equinox? The Roman Catholic Church took most of its practices from pagan religions around them to make them a part of their "party" or their "church".. So they made Jesus a god like many false gods before him were made into gods on Dec.25
Speaking of birthdays, what did you get Jesus for his birthday? SINCE you claim it is his birthday you are celebrating. OR are you buying your kids or grandkids gifts they do not need. Why do you have a tree in your house since God condemned the Jews for doing it in the Old Testament and you seem to THINK he is going to let you get by with it. What does having a tree in the house have to do with his birthday?
The Whore of Babylon, the Roman Catholic Church gave us these sick perverted holidays when they took them from the pagans long time ago and "Christianized' them, so to speak.
In closing why do some real true born again Christians say Happy Easter and Merry Christmas when neither greeting has anything to do with the supposed reasons for celebrating Jesus' birth or resurrection. Happy Easter does not mean Happy Resurrection NOR does Merry Christmas mean Merry Birthday. The greeting said over and over doing the holidays HAVE absolutely NOTHING to do with Jesus Christ. AS I said earlier Easter (Isthar) is the goddess of fertility and Christmas(s) is when the Roman Catholic Church kills Jesus Christ at their Eucharist and eat his body and drink his blood. Do I think Jesus is weeping NO BUT I DO BELIEVE HE IS MAD AS A HORNET when Christians play with these evil holidays and pretend he is glad to see his children are playing with pagan holidays SINCE he condemned his people in the OT for playing with the same two holidays under different names such as Isthar and Saturnalia. EVERY Christian will pay dearly for ignoring God's commands.
My final words to you IF you are celebrating these holiday is REPENT and I mean REPENT! God does not like people calling him a liar and I have shown you just a few reasons why God is a liar if what the preachers preach on these holidays are true. Leave these evil holidays once and for all and don't look back to them, they messed up many believers and it looks like it will go on till Jesus comes to get his church, his people, who are walking with and in him.Return to The Ekklesia Communicator Main Page
