2 Timothy 3:2-5 – “For men shall be lovers of themselves. . . lovers of pleasures more than lovers of Yahweh . . .”
Have you noticed how secular Christmas has become? The month of December 2018 was inundated with advertisement after advertisement for products to buy and give to friends, parties to attend, booze to drink, and food to consume. All of which, of course, are meant to bring happiness, success, and meaning to one’s life. Is Christmas being hijacked by the world and taken out of Christian control?
Television was inundated with every sort of movie depicting every sort of savior except Yeshua. There was A Cinderella Christmas, A Boyfriend for Christmas, A Princess for Christmas, Christmas With a Prince, My Christmas Prince, and A Shoe Addict’s Christmas, just to name a few.
Then there were the Santa Clause movies: Finding Santa, The Santa Incident, The Santa Clause 1, 2, & 3, The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus, Letters to Santa, and Bad Santa. The slapstick movies: Home Alone 1, 2, 3, and 4. And the mythical creature movies: Jack Frost, Elf, The Elf on the Shelf, and The Leprechauns’ Christmas Gold, just to name a few more.
There was: How the Grinch Stole Christmas and the Dog that Saved Christmas. Not to mention The Mistletoe Promise, Magical Christmas Ornaments, The Christmas Card, and A Cookie Cutter Christmas.
And lastly, there were the location movies: Disney Parks Magical Christmas Day Parade, Christmas in Homestead, Christmas on Honeysuckle Lane, Christmas in Angel Falls, Return to Christmas Creek, Christmas at Grand Valley, Christmas at Pemberley Manor, Christmas at the Palace, and Christmas at Graceland.
The “Church” and Its Blatant Anti-Semitic Stances
Romans 9:4 – “Theirs is the adoption to sonship; theirs the divine glory, the covenants, the receiving of the law, the temple worship and the promises.”
Romans 10:12-14 – “For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.”
It has been well documented that many “churches” exhibit a blatant anti-Semitic, anti-Yahweh stance by teaching that Yahweh has rejected the Jews and that all the promises made to Abraham have now been given to the “Church”. In doing so, they have failed to heed the Romans 9, 10 and other passages that contradict this stance. Other “churches” exhibit a blatant anti-Semitic, anti-Yahweh stance by joining in the Boycott, Divest, and Sanction movement. Yet others allow practices that are expressly prohibited by Yahweh’s word. Each of these stances exhibit a blatant anti-Semitic, anti-Yahweh stance.
The “Church” and Its Veiled Anti-Semitic Stance
Daniel 7:25 – “The antichrist “shall attempt to change the Moedim and the law.”
The “Church” also exhibits a subtle or veiled anti-Semitic stance by failing to honor Yahweh’s Moedim, his Divine Appointments. Instead, they have chosen to bring in pagan rituals, claiming to have redeemed them for Yahweh and that the now traditional worship dates (Christmas / Easter) are just as valid as the dates set by Yahweh. Worse yet, some “churches” celebrate Halloween. What a stench in Yahweh’s nostrils. Celebrating in the wrong way or on the wrong dates is not the way of Yahweh and Yeshua – it is exhibiting a subtle anti-Semitic, anti-Yahweh stance.
The “Church” and Its Failure
Jeremiah 44:10-12 – “To this day you have not lived according to my Torah or my regulations . . . Therefore I will decree disaster for you . . .You will die, from the least to the greatest, by sword and famine; and you will become an object of condemnation, astonishment, cursing and reproach.”
1 Peter 4:17 – “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of Yahweh: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of Yahweh?”
The “church”, including the true church, is coming under increased persecution for continuing to celebrate Christmas, and its companion false feasts, Easter and Halloween. Woe to those who do so. What many do not recognize, nor see, is such celebrations are a subtle, veiled anti-Semitic, anti-Yahweh stance. Further, they fail to recognize that Yahweh frequently uses the world, world governments, and worldly people to execute his anger (Isaiah 13:3) and stop worship in his temple – as did the Assyrians, Nebuchadnezzar, Antiochus Epiphanes, and the Romans.
Exodus 31:13, Leviticus 23:14-31, etc. – “You are to observe my Shabbats; for this is a sign between me and you through all your generations; so that you will know that I am Yahweh, who sets you apart for me.”
Isaiah 3:3 – “For out of Tziyon will go forth Torah, the word of Yahweh from Yerushalayim.”
Earlier we asked: “Is Christmas being hijacked by the world and taken out of Christian control?” Yahweh will judge his true church according to the scriptures. The return of Christmas to Lucifer and those who hate Yahweh by continued secularization of that day is just the beginning salvo. When all is said and done, Christmas, Easter, and Halloween will never come forth from the lips of Yahweh’s true disciples, but the Moedim will continue to be celebrated throughout eternity as memorials for what Yeshua has done, and Torah will go forth from Zion (Jerusalem) unto the whole world.
Any church or “church” that replaces Yahweh’s Moedim with alternate celebrations says to Yahweh “Your commanded holy days are less important to us than our traditions. Those churches are exhibiting a subtle, yet deliberate anti-Semitic, anti-Yahweh stance.
Prophecy as foretold by the Hebrew prophets continues to unfold in an escalating pattern. The stage is nearly completely set. The great and terrible Day of Yahweh, Joseph’s Trouble, hastens forth and will not delay. Time is short – Yeshua Ha’Mashiach is coming soon – get busy reaching the lost.
