WHY IS CHRISTMAS AGAINST THE WILL OF GOD?
THE VERY IDEA THAT ONE OUGHT TO CELEBRATE THE BIRTHDAY OF JESUS CHRIST IS WRONG FOR HE IS NOT AKIN TO MORTAL MEN WHOSE DAYS AND YEARS ARE NUMBERED. This is the reason God did not date it.
He is the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last. He is the Beginning and the End, the eternal God. Refer Rev 22:13. When He came into this world to offer Himself as the Holy, Perfect and Pleasing Sacrifice for the redemption of mankind, He did not come as ‘man’ but as Son of man. The word ‘man’ here means the ‘female of man’ (Gen 5:2). Because, though He was born of the woman, He was NOT BORN AS A HUMAN BEING OR AS A MORTAL MAN as He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and NOT of the seed of man.
As such, pretending to celebrate His ‘birthday’ surmounts to treating Him as a man, which in itself is blasphemous, as blasphemous as the rest of the celebrations that entails it– the tree, the Santa (which is nothing but the toggled version of Satan), the exchange of gifts, the so-called Christmas-eve rites and rituals, the drinking, the revelry et al!
NOTE THE FACT AND CONSIDER IT IN YOUR HEARTS AND SEE IF IT IS MERE COINCIDENCE THAT THIS ‘RELIGIOUS’ OR PAGAN SENTIMENT OF EXCHANGING GIFTS IS GOING TO BE FULLY MANIFESTED AMONG ALL MANKIND AT THE SLAYING OF THE LAST TWO PROPHETS OF GOD, AFTER WHICH THERE WILL BE NO MORE PREACHING OR TEACHING OF GOD’S WORD BY MEN (REV 11:10)?
These evil festivities only serve to betray the fact that men’s hearts and doors remain as closed to the Savior now as then when literally there was only a manger to make room to receive Him (Lk 2:6-7, 12 & 16)? Even though the sign – the sign of the virgin with child (Isa 7:14) – was foretold to His people since of long, there was just a handful of humble shepherds guided by the angels to pay their respects to the Holy Child and to spread the Good News around (Lk 2:8-20). Though the watchful Magi from the East, guided by the star, joined in later and offered their precious gifts to Him (Matt 2:1-11), their arrival having confirmed the revelation and its fulfillment (Matt 2:4-7), only served to incite the wrath of evil men against the GREATEST GIFT OF GOD TO MANKIND – HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON. For example, read Matt 2:12 and 16-18.
So that, till date, by and large all mankind remain oblivious to His kingdom, His righteousness and the wonderful and glorious Salvation He Himself wrought for all. They dare to oppose Him and reject Him as readily now as He was opposed and rejected then. Refer Isa 30:10-11. And all churches at some time or the other end up picking up this thread of PAGANISM introduced by Catholicism on the pretext of introducing God’s Word to children in particular and luring larger participation in general.
But as for the lowly, the truly humble, this itself is the sign of who He truly is (Isa 52:5-6).
THE WILL OF GOD IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE TO GLORIFY THE WORTHY LAMB OF GOD (JN 8:30, REV 5:6-14) AND NOT ANY MAN-MADE DAY OR DATE. THEREFORE CELEBRATE JESUS CHRIST AND NOT CHRISTMAS. AND CELEBRATE HIM NOT ON ANY PARTICULAR DAY BUT EVERY PASSING DAY.
Finally, REMEMBER, there is only one way in which we might do so. And that is the way of the old. Eg. Deut 4:9, Deut 6:4-9 etc. The way the angels exemplified and the shepherds followed thereafter: BY SPREADING THE GOOD NEWS. AS JESUS HIMSELF COMMISSIONED US TO DO (Matt 28:18-20): BY TEACHING AND PREACHING THE TRUTH, I.E. THE INFALLIBLE AND IRREFUTABLE WORD OF GOD FOR THE REPENTANCE OF SINS AND THE SALVATION OF MANY. Rest assured, you would have then glorified the One who Alone is the Truth, the Way and the Life. Amen!
