Commentary: X-Mas


by Guy LaMar

I've been told by many people that I interpret the Bible one way, and they interpret the Bible another way.

They say, "you believe one way, and I believe another."

Yet, when I prove to them - with God's living word - just what the Bible truly teaches us, they reject the living TRUTH of God by their own interpretation. They will argue with the Holy Bible to make it say what they want it to say, instead of what it actually says. Certainly, because they want their interpretation to mean more than our LORD God's!

The reason why!? Because they have their own traditions and customs that they have become familiar with and have fully embraced as a lifestyle.

Such as KEEPING CHRISTMAS.

Yet, "HEAR THE WORD WHICH THE LORD SPEAKS TO YOU, ... learn not the way of the heathen, ..." - Jeremiah 10:1, 2, KJV.

The word heathen is the Hebrew word gôy, meaning "regularly in the OT, any people in contrast to [the House of Israel]: the Gentiles, pagan."

Friends, if you do the ways of the heathen - then guess what!? You're a "heathen."

Those who refuse to accept the living TRUTH OF GOD, as well as any reputable secular historical FACTS, are simply people who "' in vain they worship [Him], teaching as doctrines the commandments of men'" - Matthew 15:9.

Of such, our Lord Jesus Christ will say to them, "' I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'" - Matthew 7:21-23.

Now, whose people are they!?

None other than followers of Satan the Devil! - cf. Matthew 13:24-30; John 8:44; 1 John 3:10.

Most of whom call themselves a "Christian" - who fully embrace Pagan/Catholicism (most without even realizing it!), even "de-facto idolatry" - are but serving Satan the Devil! NOT ALMIGHTY GOD!

In the eyes of the LORD God, they are but fakes!

God's Spirit has no part with them.

And sadly, showing them what God's living word truly says about it won't make much difference - cf. Matthew 7:6. They fully accept the lying vain traditions and customs of man. They like the fact that their interpretations make them feel good!

Friends, taking up your cross (Mark 8:34), of which our Lord Jesus Christ speaks, is NOT embracing this world's "Christianity" - which is a religion of Satan the Devil's - cf. Genesis 3:4; 2 Corinthians 4:4. It is taking upon yourself the burden of living AGAINST this world for the namesake of Christ Jesus!

Sadly, this present evil world - on the whole - REJECTS the LORD God, and they embrace Satan the Devil!

And, what I have come to witness, the churches of God along with their ministers have become weak (cf. Revelation 3:15-16), they more than often compromise not wanting to offend anyone (especially their members) with the living TRUTH OF GOD!

They want to be welcoming to all - and indeed the Lord our Savior's Church is WELCOMING TO ALL! Yet, the churches of God don't want to offend anyone by calling out the sins that many are embracing so as not to lose members or offend this world -cf. 

Here is something which Minister Michael C. Garrett wrote concerning Revelation 3:14-18 -
"The Message in all of these two chapters [Revelation chapters 2 & 3] is that some of the people who think they are of the members of the churches of God will indeed have to go through the end-time trauma! Some church people are going to go through hell! I mean that in the allegorical sense. 'CHANGE YOUR WAYS!' "MAYBE CHANGE YOUR CHURCH'!? "MAYBE CHANGE YOUR CHURCH LEADERS'!?" 1
God's servants NEED to be bold in speaking the truth of God, and if the truth cuts, then so be it! Whether they reject the truth or defend their sins and continue to live in them - cf. Hebrews 4:12. See also: Ezekiel 2:5; Jeremiah 5:21; Matthew 10:14; Acts 17:30; Romans 1:19-20.

Most times they will attack the true servants of God who are trying to warn them. When judgment comes, it will be accounted for on both sides - cf. Romans 14:12. For the true servant of God who boldly (cf. John 12:24-25) spoke God's living TRUTH, along with the one who defended their sins.

So, to be clear: any honest, astute, and sincere BIBLE STUDENT should understand that X-Mas is pagan - right down to the core! All of its customs and traditions can be traced back to pagan cults, rites, and their deities! Its very origin is from Satan the Devil!

Also, the new year DOES NOT begin in the dead of winter! The LORD God's new year begins in the spring - which represents new life! In fact, more than likely, Mary became conceived with our Lord Jesus in December and was born in the fall - possibly on the Feast of Trumpets!?

In fact, the X-Mas tree is but another heathen custom! Notice -

"For the customs of the peoples are futile; For one cuts a tree from the forest, The work of the hands of the workman, with the ax. 4) They decorate it with silver and gold; They fasten it with nails and hammers So that it will not topple. 5) They are upright, like a palm tree, And they cannot speak; ..." - Jeremiah 10:3-4, 5. See also - Isaiah 41:7; 44:9-17; 46:5-7.
"It was akin to the ancient Asherah Pole – which was a sacred tree (or pole) that stood near a Canaanite religious altar as a symbol of honor to the goddess Asherah – hence Semiramis. So, indeed, there are similarities between this world’s modern Christmas tree and what God is telling us through the prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah. The Christmas tree is a symbol. The evergreen tree was a symbol of life and fertility and was a custom of – ancient Sumerians – as well as the ancient Egyptians, the Babylonians, the Chinese, as well as other ancient peoples." 2
Our peoples who go to their religious gurus to try and get around the living TRUTH OF GOD will certainly be held accountable for finding new ways to embrace lies - cf. Romans 1:30.

The TRUTH OF GOD is the plain truth that cannot be denied!

The facts are thus: in this world that we are living in - it's either God's Way or Satan the Devil's way.

"' I call heaven and earth as witnesses TODAY against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; THEREFORE CHOOSE LIFE'" - Deuteronomy 30:19.

Sadly, there are far more followers of Satan the Devil in this end-time than true servants of the LORD God.

People that truly love and believe God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ (cf. John 14:15), who have gone through the process of being called, learning, and growing in God's grace and knowledge WILL REPENT from their error and OBEY GOD! But our peoples who have been presented the truth of God and REJECT it, are dooming themselves!

Our peoples that continue to keep and celebrate this Satan-made lie which is called "Christmas" need to REPENT and turn away from this pagan custom.

REPENT and seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness. □

Commentary: Love Does No HarmWe should NEVER neglect to tell someone that we love, that we love them. [...]
Commentary: Familiar TraditionsPeople are used to holding onto their religious traditions over truth and facts because familiar traditions are comfortable to people - but regardless, it doesn't make it truth. [...]
