CHRISTMAS as Christ's Birthday?A Big Fat Lie!

Bah! Humbug!
By Davy Crockett
Thursday, December 24, 2009

The sounds, the smells, the colorful lights and decorations; folks being thoughtful and remembering the poor, good feelings all around; what could possibly be wrong with any of this? Short days, cold, long nights can use some brightening up and some cheerful activities, so “Just leave me alone” the devotees to Christmas might say to those who decry the celebrations of the season.

“It’s for the children!” many say, as a defense for continuing the observance in the face of all the incriminating evidence against it. Some will say, “We are honoring Jesus Christ, our Savior, by observing this season regardless of its origins.” In actual fact, to put Christ into Christmas, you would have to hijack Him, since He was never anywhere in the observance, from its beginnings down to modern times.

This greatest of all the “Christian” holidays began in antiquity, as a pagan observance of the winter solstice, and has morphed into a quasi-religious observance that is really a great merchandising opportunity for merchants who cater to every whim, as people scramble to buy gifts for family, friends, and business associates. Surely, one can’t be against booming commerce which brings jobs and prosperity to so many people.

Then comes the day after the big celebration, when the reality of the credit buying binge crashes in on many families who financed their generosity with credit cards bearing high interest rates. Many heads ache from the over-indulgence in food and drink that would be unthinkable at other times of the year, but which is perfectly acceptable during this winter season. The stress and strain associated with all that goes on leading up to the climax of the observance takes a toll on many of the participants.

Still, you might be thinking, “If I’m willing to accept the responsibility and put up with all of this pressure to conform, why should anyone care? It’s nobody’s business but mine!” And, if you are not concerned about what the Bible has to say about the situation, you would be right. However, actions have consequences, which include the universally popular observance of Christmas.

Consider that the Bible says that truth is important. Notice John 8:32: “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” I’m certain you are aware that one of the basic ten commandments given by God on Mt. Sinai concerned being truthful: “You shall not bear false witness” (Exodus 20:16). With that in mind, consider that Jesus Christ was not born on December 25th. So, the basic premise of the observance is based on an untruth – that’s right – a lie!

Another big part of the celebration, especially for children, is the Santa Claus tradition. I hate to be the one to break it to you, but there is no Santa Claus. It is a lie!

What does the Bible say about the fate of liars? It is not pretty. Revelation 21:8 states: “…all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

Clinging to traditions is not new. Jesus dealt with the subject when He strongly corrected the Pharisees and Sadducees saying: “All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition” (Mark 7:9). In another place, Jesus explained that paying lip service and using His name is not what is required. “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven” (Matthew 7:21). What is His will? That we worship him with sincerity and truth (1 Corinthians 5:8; cf., 1 Peter 1:22).

Christmas is not the only popular tradition or teaching that is not biblical. If you have the courage to face reality about many of the things taught by mainstream Christianity, then you will find our free booklet, Satan’s Counterfeit Christianity very helpful.

As you read this booklet you may find yourself saying with Scrooge, in the popular Christmas story, “A Christmas Carol” – “Bah! Humbug!”

Last chance in Jerusalem?

By Adam J. West

Is it the destiny of Europe to become more actively involved in the Middle East as events hurtle toward the climactic return of Jesus Christ? Will it begin to exercise a strong influence in the region of, and even militarily occupy, the Holy Land? Your Bible plainly affirms that this will be the case.

An interesting article titled, EU faces ‘last chance’ for peace in Israel, offers an insight into what may be the beginnings of a more crucial role for Europe in the Middle East. In the article, Mr. Meir Margalit, a Jerusalem city councilor on the front lines of the mid-east peace process, states: “We have reached the last moment when it is still possible to divide and share Jerusalem. If it [decisive action] does not happen this year, it will become impossible to implement any plan like the two-state solution.” (emphasis mine) The leadership of Jerusalem is imploring the European Union to get involved in the political and geographical division of Jerusalem...

If this truly is the “last chance” for Jerusalem being divided into a Palestinian/Israeli state, and the hand of the European Union does stretch to exert “influence” in the region of Jerusalem, we are most certainly in momentous times, for the Bible speaks of a time when God says He “…will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem; the city shall be taken, the houses rifled, and the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into captivity…” (Zechariah 14:2, emphasis mine).

Take note of what is being said – half of Jerusalem’s inhabitants will be taken, and led away, into captivity. Other prophecies clearly state that captivity is coming for the modern day descendants of ancient Israel as well. You need to understand the identity of who these modern-day peoples are. The answer may shock you!

The armies gathered together, surrounding Jerusalem just before Christ’s return, will fight against Him in what men call the battle of Armageddon.

To learn more about this exciting yet terrifying battle to occur in Jerusalem in the final climactic world war, and to find out what you can do to protect yourself from the terror that is to come, read Armageddon and Beyond and continue to watch events unfold in the mid-east powder keg!

EU’s Greater Involvement in Jerusalem. -

EU’s greater involvement in Jerusalem. -
Living Church of God: News & Prophecy:
Friday, December 11, 2009

Sweden has drafted an EU plan to make east Jerusalem the future capital of the Palestinian Territory (Christian Science Monitor, December 1, 2009). However, significant negative feedback has led the EU to pull “back from a confrontation with Israel by dropping a call for east Jerusalem to be recognized as the future capital of a Palestinian state.” The draft now calls for the Palestinian territory to only “include” part of the city (Telegraph, December 8, 2009).

With tensions still high between Israel and the Palestinians, the EU appears intent on moving forward for peace in the region. Jerusalem has been at the heart of this conflict since its beginning, yet peace in Jerusalem appears a long way off.

God prophesied that, at the end of the age, Jerusalem would be a “cup of trembling” to the surrounding nations (Zechariah 12:2, KJV). Yet, at some point, military action will be taken by the King of the North to control the city (Daniel 11:30-31; Luke 21:20-24). This military occupation will ultimately last for 3.5 years (Revelation 11:2).

The real hope for true and lasting peace in the region will come when Christ returns to set up His world government in Jerusalem. In the meantime, we should all “pray for the peace of Jerusalem” and for the return of Christ to this special city (Psalm 122:6).

"Lisbon’s Constitutional Revolution by Stealth"

The Brussels Journal
Mon, 2009-11-30 09:47
An analysis by Prof. Anthony Coughlan

With the coming into force of the Lisbon Treaty on Tuesday 1 December, members of the European Parliament, who up to now have been “representatives of the peoples of the States brought together in the Community” (Art.189 TEC), become “representatives of the Union’s citizens” (Art.14 TEU).

This change in the status of MEPs is but one illustration of the constitutional revolution being brought about by the Lisbon Treaty.

For Lisbon, like the EU Constitution before it, establishes for the first time a European Union which is constitutionally separate from and superior to its Member States, just as the USA is separate from and superior to its 50 constituent states or as Federal Germany is in relation to its Länder."

"The 27 EU members thereby lose their character as true sovereign States." ...

"Most Europeans are unaware of these astonishing changes, for two reasons. One is that, with the exception of the Irish, they have been denied any chance of learning about and debating them in national referendums. The other is that the terms “European Union”, “EU citizen” and “EU citizenship” remain the same before and after Lisbon, although Lisbon changes their constitutional content fundamentally.

The Lisbon Treaty therefore is a constitutional revolution by stealth."...

"Three steps to a federal-style Constitution

Lisbon’s constitutional revolution takes place in three interconnected steps:"

  • "Firstly, the Treaty establishes a European Union with legal personality and a fully independent corporate existence in all Union areas for the first time"

  • "Secondly, Lisbon abolishes the European Community which goes back to the Treaty of Rome"...

  • "Thirdly, Lisbon then makes 500 million Europeans into real citizens of the new Federal-style Union which the Treaty establishes"...

"In the post-Lisbon EU the rights and duties attaching to citizenship of the Union will be superior to those attaching to one’s national citizenship in any case of conflict between the two"...

"The EU will be constitutionally superior even though the powers of the new Union come from its Member States"...
