XX. Happy Holi...MERRY CHRISTMAS!

No matter what twists and turns society has put on this time of the year such as characters and sales and entertainment and controversy, one thing remains constant: it is still Christmas. And Christmas has always had the same meaning. This holiday (holy day) has been set by man but had been instituted by God.


The true date of Christ's birthday is still a mystery but the meaning behind the event is the clearest thing ever. God came down from His throne in heaven and placed Himself into our lives. He came from Paradise to come to a world hurting and dying to save it.


Why have we, as Christians especially, allowed the world to demean what the day stands for? Why do we constantly give up ground on this issue? It doesn't matter if Kwanzaa is celebrated. It doesn't matter if Hanukkah is celebrated. It doesn't matter if there is a Festivus for the rest of us. This time of the year is still set apart for the savior of the world. And if you are a Christian, then celebrate Christmas not the holiday season.
Merry Christmas!

Maybe you're dissatisfied with the season because you're expecting something that it is not.

Sorry I hit the button too quickly.

Satan has done a great job in transforming one of his holidays into one for the Christian church. Even though we say it about Jesus, it is not. Everything from the yuletide to the "christmas tree" to the 25th of December has pagan roots not biblical. Even the "christams hymns" have a lot of non truths in them.

You mentioned in one of your other blogs that we don't know the actual date, which is true. However, we do know the time of year, approximately six months after John, the Baptist birth, which was at Passover, not at the same day the pagans celebrate the birth of a new sun, that's sUn not son.

If you're unhappy with what this time of the year has become, why don't celebrate Jesus' birth with the rest of us, somewhere around the end of September.

I don't care that much about this time of the year, because God doesn't put that much emphasis on it. I put the emphasis on what is most important to God, which is what separates the believers in Jesus from the false religions of this world........the death and resurrection. Let's see Satan muck that up. Do I see bunnies?

Happy Chanukah my brother.
