This might seem like an odd time to post this article here. The reason I am doing so is to point out the lies that we have been taught and that certain things that seems good to us are in actual fact of the occult world. We are to learn from the Scriptures ourselves and stop listening to men to make decisions for us as to what is right and wrong. We must learn the Way of YHWH, not the way of man.

The vast majority of Christians insist on celebrating the “Christmas holiday” as though it has something to do with the birth of “Jesus” – even though most realize that “Jesus” wasn’t born on December 25th and even that the roots of “Christmas” go deep into paganism and nowhere to be found in the Bible. YHWH never suggested we celebrate birthdays, let alone the birth of the Savior.

The Word of YHWH foretold that the “seed” of woman would come the Savior of all mankind, and by this seed “the Serpent” would be destroyed: “And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; it shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel” (Genesis 3:15).

After the flood when the human race was centralized on the plains of Babylon, haSatan began to turn mankind away from YHWH’s plan of redemption by producing a counterfeit Messiah. HaSatan found an ambitious woman named Semiramis, the widow of Nimrod, he was of course “the mighty hunter before YHWH” (Genesis 10:9) who met with a violent death. Nimrod had been defied as the deliverer from the menace of wild animals. His widow sought to perpetuate his worship while also retaining the power of his kingdom, and she deceived people into believing that she gave birth, through a miraculous conception, to a son she named Tammuz (branch) whom she purported to be the reincarnation of Nimrod. 2,000 BCE saw haSatan’s counterfeit to the promised “Seed.” Semiramis was thenceforth worshipped as “the mother of god” (Madonna) or “the queen of heaven,” and her illegitimate son also became a deity. This is where the ancient Babylonian mystery religion originated, the fountainhead of all idolatry. Every idol, whether mentioned in the Set Apart Scriptures or in Mythology, can be traced to these beginnings.

Alexander Hislop, in his monumental work “The Two Babylons” has shown that papal worship is based on none other than the worship of Nimrod and his wife, disguised in a garb of Christianity. Concerning the Christmas festival Hislop writes: “That Christmas was originally a pagan festival is beyond all doubt. The time of the year, the ceremonies with which it is celebrated, prove its origin. In Egypt, the son of Isis, the Egyptian title for the queen of heaven, was born at this very time, about the time of the winter solstice. The very name by which Christmas is popularly known among ourselves – Yule day – proves at once its pagan and Babylonian origin. “Yule” is the Chaldee name for “infant” or “little child”; and as the 25th of December was referred to by Anglo-Saxon ancestors as the “Yule-day” or “the child’s day”, and the night that preceded it, “Mother night”, long before they came in contact with Christianity, that sufficiently proves its real character. Far and wide in the realms of paganism was the birthday observed.” (The Two Babylons; Alexander Hislop, pg 93)

As mentioned above, it can be clearly demonstrated from Scripture that Y’hoshua Mashiyach was not born in the winter. Since YHWH in no way authorized the celebration of Christmas, not to mention birthdays, what would posses Christians to fabricate a birth date for our Savior? As early as the First Century Rav Shaul rebuked Gentile followers of Mashiyach for attempting to incorporate paganism into the True Faith: “Then, for when you did not know Elohim, you served those things who, by their very nature, are not Elohim. Now that you have knowledge of Elohim, and especially have knowledge from Elohim, that you have returned to those weak and poor principles, wishing to come under their bondage. You have observed days and months and times and years, I am afraid that perhaps my being among you has been in vain” (Galatians 4:8-11). Rav Shaul’s letters, of course, were not heeded by the Church.

In the year 230 CE the Christian Church founder Tertullian wrote: “By us [Gentile Christians] who are strangers to (Jewish) Sabbaths, and new moons, and festivals, once acceptable to G-d, the Saturnalia, the feast of January, the Brumalia, , and Matronalia are now frequented, with gifts being carried to and fro.

Moving on, Tammuz was worshiped as “god” incarnate which implied that he was an incarnation of the “Lord of the heavens.” Since the sun grows stronger after the 25th of December, this date came to be known as the rebirth of Nimrod and of the Sun. in ancient Rome this day was known as “Natalis Invicti Solis,” the birthday of the unconquered sun. lights were kindled then to burn until the 6th of January (Epiphany). The week-long feast of Saturnalia was held at the time of the winter solstice, accompanied with much evil revelry and debauchery. HaSatan managed to find masses of gullible and willing men to seduce into believing the lie that these pagan festivals were acceptable to the Almighty, and various “religious men” were instrumental in incorporating them into the Catholic religion. As a matter of fact, it became policy for the papacy to amalgamate heathen festivals with Christendom. Pope Gregory wrote to Augustine the first missionary to the British Isles (CE 597): “Do not destroy the temple of the English gods; change them to Christian churches. Do not forbid the ‘harmless customs’ which have been associated with the old religions; consecrate them to Christian use.” The Vatican views paganism as “harmless customs” which is why the church is rife with paganism that was syncretized into Greco-Roman Christianity.

Sir James Fraser in “The Golden Bough” writes: “Thus it appears that the Christian Church chose to celebrate the birthday of its founder on the 25th of December in order to transfer the devotion of the heathen from the sun to him who was called the sun of Righteousness. If that was so, there can be no intrinsic improbability in the conjecture that motives of the same sort may have led the ecclesiastical authorities to assimilate the Easter festival of the death and resurrection of their Lord to the festival of the death and resurrection of another Asiatic god which fell in the same season.” To be appealing to the masses, the early post-apostolic church founders asserted their political and immoral relativism against the Word of YHWH, thus making void the Commandments of YHWH by their pagan traditions.

The term “Christmas” first appeared around 450 CE when Pope Julius decreed that all Catholics must celebrate the birthday of Christ at the same time that the heathen were celebrating the pagan Saturnalia feast. It was designated as “Christe-masse” or Christ’s mass. Sadly, there are precious few Christians who recognize that the origin of the “Christmas tree” is from Babylon mystery religion as many believe the tree originated among Christians in Europe. But there are even fewer Christians who know this and will actually dare to speak out to warn others against the pagan origins of Christmas.

The decorated tree represents Tammuz (which means a branch); it is haSatan’s counterfeit of the true “Branch” – Hebrew: NETZER; a shoot; or sprout. Mashiyach was prophetically called “The Root out of dry ground” (Isaiah 11:1, 53:2, Jeremiah 23:5). “Behold the man whose name is The Branch” (Zechariah 6:12). Ancient Babylonian coins pictured a tree stump which represented dead Nimrod and a small tree growing nearby which represented Tammuz. The Egyptians used the palm; the Romans a pine tree. The “X-mas tree” as once worshipped by idolatrous Israelites is described in Jeremiah 10. Mistletoe and holly figured prominently in the early Anglo-Saxon and Druidic tree worship.

Hear ye the word which YHWH speaks to you, O house of Israel: Thus says YHWH, learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cuts a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workmen, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be born, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good” (Jeremiah 10:1-5).

Clearly Jeremiah records a vivid depiction of a tree that is cut down from a forest, erected and decorated for a religious celebration. Ezekiel also shows how YHWH’s people sorely grieved Him by adopting the “imagery” of Tammuz which now has become the decorated Christmas tree. “Then said He unto me, Son of man, have you seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? For they say, ‘YHWH does not see us; YHWH has forsaken the earth.’ He said also unto me, turn yet again, and you shall see greater abominations that they do. Then He brought me to the door of the gate of YHWH’s house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz” (Ezekiel 8:11-14).

Part of Tammuz worship was to place golden balls on the tree which were representative of his testicles, as he was also considered a god of sex. The women weeping for Tammuz was a pagan ritual that continued long after he died because his sexual services were no longer available. As one can plainly see, the whole hearted Believer would not contribute to the perpetuation of Christmas in any manner; he or she will withdraw from all pagan-born celebrations revered by the same evil spirit that tried to slay the infant Messiah by Herod’s sword. The blood of the slaughtered babies of Bethlehem cries out against the diabolical hatred toward the infant Savior whom the world hated. Sadly, the world is now racing towards the fulfillment of YHWH’s Word his witness shall be slain and “they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them and make merry and shall send gifts to one another” (Revelation 11:10).

Christians and all who would follow the Elohim of Awraham, Yitzchak and Ya’akov, would do well to act upon Rav Shaul’s teachings, a man of truth! “And have no commerce with the works of darkness which are unfruitful, but reject them” (Ephesians 5:11). Torah reminds us: “You shall not follow a multitude to do evil” (Exodus 23:2). Many think that Christmas isn’t a big deal, even though they know it has pagan origins; but Mashiyach states, “That which is highly esteemed among men is abominable in the sight of Elohim” (Luke 16:15). Rav Shaul writes, “And be not conformed to this world; but be you transformed by the renovation of your minds: and discern you what is the good and acceptable and perfect pleasure of Elohim” (Romans 12:3). All children of Elohim have an obligation to love each other and warn each other against delving into pagan rituals, because this is NOT a light matter, it’s impossible to serve two masters.
