It’s Time to Talk About Christmas

lone black back stilt for card

If you are a Christian awakening to the deceptions the Church has promoted for so long, and seeking truth about Christmas and whether or not you should be celebrating it, here are some facts you might want to consider, as well as God’s word on the subject.

The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine. A few years later, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated on December 25th. This is akin to President’s Day—where we celebrate a bunch of presidents’ birthdays who were not born on that day—only worse, because it is our Lord and Savior we are falsely celebrating with vanity, worldliness and commercialism, not some man who cares about his birthday being celebrated.

Christmas is a Catholic pagan holiday taken from Mithraism, inspired by Iranian cult worship of the sun god, Mithris, practiced in the Roman Empire from the 1st to 4th century CE. It has no connection to the birth of Christ, but was adopted in an attempt to create unity between the heathen Romans and the Christians, like the ecumenical movement of today which stems from the Roman Catholic Church’s attempts to reconcile with Christians who separated from Rome during the Protestant Reformation, standing for the word of God over traditions of the Church, which contradict Bible truth. The keeping of the venerable day of the sun (Sunday) was also legislated around the same time by Constantine and adopted by the Roman Catholic Church for the same reason. It was also to place a wall of separation between the Jews, who from their beginning as a people had kept the Sabbath that God created, blessed and sanctified in Genesis 2:2-3 and later spoke and wrote with His own finger on the table of stone as the fourth commandment (Exodus 20:8-11), and the Church. The Sabbath of God could of course never be changed except by God Himself, and He changes not. “My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.” Psalm 89:34.

The Bible doesn’t explicitly state the date of Jesus’ birth, but it does give clues. Luke 2:8-14 speaks of shepherds living outdoor and tending their flock of sheep at night. The text reads, “And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.” Scholars of the Bible have concluded that this would be an unlikely practice in the month of December, for the weather conditions would be too cold to live outside to tend to a flock of sheep.

The Book of Luke tells us that John the Baptist was 6 months older than Jesus, [Luke 1:26]. The book also tells us when John was conceived so it is possible to approximate the time of John’s birth…and that of Jesus.

John’s father, Zechariah, served as a priest in the division of Abijah, [Luke 1:5]. His priestly duty entailed one week of temple service every year plus three more weeks during the three yearly festivals.

His division was the eighth so his period of temple service began in the eighth week of the year, [I Chronicles 24:10]. The Hebrew year, being lunar, began in the spring around late March early April. The eighth week would then generally fall around the first of June the way we show the months of the year on our calendar.

Luke 1:23-24 tells us that Elizabeth, John’s mother, became pregnant right after Zechariah‘s service in the temple. This would have been approximately mid June, which means that John the Baptist would have been born around mid March….or close to Passover. Jesus would have been conceived in John’s sixth gestational month by the Holy Spirit, [Luke 1:26] which would have been December….so Jesus would have been born around the middle of September. This event would have probably taken place about the time of the last Hebrew Holiday of Sukkot, (Feast of Tabernacles). Since everyone was expected to travel to Jerusalem for the three annual feasts, this is probably the real reason why there was no room in the inn.

During the Feast Days the normal population of Jerusalem, 120,000, would probably swell to well over 1,500,000 folks. This would not be the case in the Month of December as there were no annual Feast Days then. Bethlehem, being a “suburb” of Jerusalem would likely fill up quickly with the overflow. This time would also be consistent with the shepherds still in the fields during September. The weather in Israel during December can be quite cold so flocks are usually brought into shelter no later than the middle of October. The 25th of December date is not scriptural and as you can see by the above evidence, is not likely.

On the Christmas tree, God is pretty clear … don’t follow the vain customs of the heathen! Jeremiah 10:2-6 “Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good. Forasmuch as there is none like unto thee, O Lord; thou art great, and thy name is great in might.”

Our Lord and Savior will be returning soon to take up His who are found to be without spot or wrinkle, keeping the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. Revelation 14:12. Everyone must make their own decisions, but do Christians really want to be found involved with celebrating a pagan holiday and performing rituals that so thoroughly dishonor our Lord. We should enjoy giving gifts, and spontaneously do so all during the year. We should love, honor and give glory to our Lord every day. What business do true Christians have being involved with Satanic pagan rituals?

What could an Unsanctified Man do in Heaven?

(J.C. Ryle, “Holiness, Its Nature, Hindrances, Difficulties, and Roots”)

“Without holiness, no one will see the Lord!” Hebrews 12:14

Most men hope to go to Heaven when they die; but few, it may be feared, take the trouble to consider whether they would enjoy Heaven if they got there.

Heaven is essentially a holy place;
its inhabitants are all holy;
its occupations are all holy.
To be really happy in Heaven, it is clear and plain that we must be somewhat trained and made ready for Heaven while we are on earth.

We must be saints before we die–if we are to be saints afterwards in glory.
We need the work of the Holy Spirit–as well as the work of Christ;
we need renewal of the heart–as well as the atoning blood;
we need to be sanctified–as well as to be justified.

What could an unsanctified man do in Heaven, if by any chance he got there?

No man can possibly be happy in a place where he is not in his element, and where all around him is not congenial to his tastes, habits and character.
When an eagle is happy in an iron cage,
when a sheep is happy in the middle of a lake,
when a fish is happy on the dry land–
then, and not until then, will I admit that the unsanctified man could be happy in Heaven!

The book of Revelation says expressly, “Nothing impure will ever enter it.” Revelation 21:27

Suppose for a moment, that you were allowed to enter Heaven without holiness.
What would you do? What possible enjoyment could you experience there?

Now perhaps, you love the company of . . .
the vain and the impious,
the worldly-minded and the profligate,
the reveler and the pleasure-seeker,
the ungodly and the profane.
There will be none such in Heaven!

Now perhaps you think the that saints of God too strict and particular and serious. You rather avoid them. You have no delight in their society. But there will be no other company in Heaven.

Now perhaps you think that praying and Scripture reading and hymn singing–are dull and melancholy and foolish; a thing to be tolerated now and then–but not enjoyed. You reckon the worship a burden and a weariness. But remember, Heaven is never-ending worship. The inhabitants thereof rest not day or night, saying, “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty,” and singing the praise of the Lamb. How could an unholy man find pleasure in occupation such as this?

It seems clear that Heaven would be a miserable place to an unholy man! We must be heavenly-minded and have heavenly tastes in the present life–or else we will never find ourselves in Heaven in the life to come!

“Let him who does wrong continue to do wrong;
let him who is vile continue to be vile;
let him who does right continue to do right;
and let him who is holy continue to be holy.” Revelation 22:11

A Head Full of Froth

Have you read your Bible today?

Bible_sabbath commandment
(Charles Spurgeon)

“I hate vain thoughts–but I love Your law!” Psalm 119:113

Many of you know more about your magazines and novels–than what God has written in His holy Word!

Many of you will read a novel from the beginning to the end, and what have you got? A head full of froth when you are done! But you cannot read the Bible–that solid, lasting, substantial, and satisfying food goes uneaten, locked up in the cupboard of neglect–while anything that man writes, a best-seller of the day–you greedily devour!

“Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things!” Psalm 119:37

“Set your minds on things above–not on earthly things!” Colossians 3:2

Let us get ready for the coming storm

“He did it!” she said under oath. “I didn’t!” He fired back under oath. The fact is: both can’t be right. Somewhere, the TRUTH EXISTS about what really happened 36 years ago. Hopefully, the FBI investigation will uncover it. Without wading into partisan politics, I want to stress to all of my readers that this whole controversy (if you are watching it) is a lesson revealing that truth isn’t relative, as so many mistakenly claim today. That it is an illusion. The fact is that truth does exist.

“What is truth?” Pontius Pilate asked Jesus Christ (John 18:38) during His trial. This was a great question, but then HE WALKED AWAY from THE ONE WHO IS THE TRUTH. Let’s be careful. Let’s not make the same mistake of claiming to be looking for truth today, but then avoiding it when God shows it to our consciences. Jesus Christ is the truth (John 14:6). God’s Word is truth (John 17:17). The Holy Spirit is “the Spirit of truth” (John 16:13). His law is the truth (Ps. 119:142). In this time of raging controversy, may God help us not to be deceived away from Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirit, His Word, and His Law.

There’s another lesson I want to stress, especially for “the remnant” people of God who who seek to “keep the commandments of God” and hold to “the testimony of Jesus Christ” (Revelation 12:17). During earth’s final crisis (see Revelation 13:16,17; 18:1-4), the world’s spotlight will be on us. I hope we realize that. At that time, make no mistake about it: we will be fully investigated. Every position we hold, every doctrine, and every life practice will be scrutinized. Every slander and false accusation will also be thrown against us, as were heaped upon our Master, Jesus Christ. Yet Jesus was innocent and blameless. All accusations were false. In that storm, the Father stood by His Son. And after Jesus died, God raised Him triumphantly from the dead (Matthew 28:1-8).

What about us? Now is the time to confess every sin. Now is the time to make sure we have no skeletons in our closets that might be revealed under intense investigation. By God’s grace, we must “become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world” (Phil. 2:15).

Brother’s and sisters, it’s time to pray, to humble ourselves, to meditate much on God’s Word, to seek Jesus earnestly, and to trust Him fully.

Let’s learn these lessons from The Kavanaugh/Ford Controversy.

Let’s get ready for the coming storm.”

Faithful Unto Death

Image result for baby chicks under mother's wings
After a forest fire in Yellowstone Park, a National Geographic photographer joined some forest rangers on their trek up a mountain to assess the inferno’s damage. As they hiked through the burnt forest, the photographer found a scorched bird literally petrified in ashes, perched statuesquely on the ground at the base of a tree. Somewhat curious of the eerie sight, he gently struck at the bird with his boot. When he did, three tiny chicks scurried out from under their dead mother’s wings.
The loving mother, keenly aware of impending disaster, had led her offspring to the base of the tree and had gathered them under her wings, instinctively knowing that the toxic smoke would rise. She could have flown to safety but refused to abandon her chicks. When the blaze arrived and the heat scorched her small body, the mother remained steadfast. Because she was willing to die, those under the cover of her wings would live.

The mother bird’s instinct to protect her young at the cost of her own life describes a quality infrequently found among humans. During the shootings in the Aurora, Colorado, movie theater this last year, some people ran for their lives, leaving their own children behind. But others threw themselves over their family at the cost of their own lives. It reminds me of the Bible verse: “By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren” (1 John 3:16).

Jesus did not hesitate to give His life for a world soon to be enveloped in an unquenchable forest fire. Christ wept out the words, “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!” (Matthew 23:37). Our Savior stretched out His arms over us, to shield us from the penalty of sin. Christ died in order that we might live.

The picture of a mother hen quietly sitting over her cute brood of little peeping chicks makes us smile. But the picture of Calvary is like the bird that died in the fire at Yellowstone, with outstretched wings, faithful unto death.


He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Psalms 91:4

Purgatory 101

Having been raised Protestant (Methodist), purgatory is not a concept we have any first hand knowledge about because it is not in the Bible. I did then, and still have, many Catholic (or one time Catholic and now atheist) friends, so it is a concept I became familiar with through them. Having studied in depth the history of the Protestant Reformation in recent years, I now understand its significance relative to the doctrine of indulgences that was the basis of Luther’s “Disputation on the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences,” also known as the 95 theses, that Luther nailed to the door of the Wittenberg Castle Church in 1517, beginning the Protestant Reformation which celebrated its 500th anniversary on October 31, 2017.

For those who are Protestant and do not understand purgatory, or for that matter even why you are a Protestant, and for those who are Catholic (or once Catholic and now atheist) and might like to understand where and why this dreadful false doctrine of demons was created, you will learn much from this short video.  It helped me to have a much greater understanding and empathy for the guilt, fear and anger at God that I encounter from many of my dearly loved Catholic, and now in many cases atheist, friends. I pray they might watch this and have their eyes opened to the fact that God is not the cruel, vicious, brutal tyrant He is made out to be by the Church. He is our Creator, our Heavenly Father who loves us more than we can ever imagine, so much so that He sent His only begotten son to die in our places, to pay our penalty for us, so that whoever believes in Him might not perish but have everlasting life. And while there is certainly an eternal perishing ahead for those who rebel against God and refuse His free and unmerited gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, that perishing is not an unspeakably torturous eternity in flames, but a perishing that has eternal consequences, the second death in the lake of fire, from which there is no chance of resurrection, only eternal destruction.

He Leadeth Me

I don’t know if this happens to other believers — I assume it must — but in the middle of the night I often awake singing in my head, and almost always in the morning as I awake there is a song there, which leads me into prayer before I open my eyes. Last night and into this morning, this was the song that had overtaken me. I find it makes it hard for Satan to take hold of my day when it has begun this way — not that he doesn’t try his hardest, but the hedge of protection is up, the armor is on, the angels of the LORD are encamped round about me, and I am covered with His feathers. Praise God, He leadeth me, and His faithful follower I will be.

The Most Amazing Fact


An Amazing Fact: One of the most amazing materials in nature is the light, flexible, yet incredibly strong compound spiders use to catch unsuspecting insects. It’s spider silk. Pound for pound, the threads produced by these little arachnids can hold more weight than the most sophisticated manufactured materials. The silk in a spider web is an extremely strong substance that has a tensile strength of 300,000 pounds per square inch and is both stronger and lighter than compounds based on steel.

For a long time people have known about the impressive properties of spider silk, and some have dreamed of being able to create it, perhaps the way that the ancient Chinese learned to produce silk from silkworms. But unlike the gentle silkworm, spiders are aggressive, territorial, and not easily domesticated. Up until now all attempts to synthesize spider silk have failed, but a new venture involving gene-splicing is showing considerable promise.

A Canadian company, Nexia Biotechnologies, appears on the verge of manufacturing a substance similar to spider silk through a surprising method, using the milk of goats. Researchers put the spider silk gene into milk animals, since there are close anatomical similarities between the silk-producing glands of spiders and the milk-producing glands of these mammals. The scientists spliced the spider silk gene into cells taken from the mammary glands of goats. The silk genes worked with amazing efficiency in the mammary cells, and Nexia scientists were soon
producing high-quality spider silk.

Now the challenge will be to mass breed these transgenic goats and extract the pure silk protein from the milk and spin it into fabric. If the new stock of genetically altered goats produce as expected, Nexia will have the beginnings of a spider-silk dairy. The product, called “BioSteel,” may soon be used for a variety of applications, from medical sutures to artificial tendons or ligaments. It could be used to create lighter and stronger bulletproof vests, and even for the coatings of space stations to protect them from micro-meteorites.

It’s interesting to consider how many of man’s inventions have been plagiarized from the amazing creatures God has designed. The most amazing fact is that many people think all these wonders of nature have evolved by chance!

O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches. Psalms 104:24

Beware! The Mark of Beast is Upon Us – Do Not Accept It. Worship God on His Established Day, Not the False Day of the Beast.

Mark of the Beast

The above linked article by the Catholic News Agency is a clear sign to those watching end time signs that we are very near enforcement of the mark of the beast.

To those who do not study end time prophecy and are therefore unaware, the Mark of the Beast involves worship (as has been the case with all of God’s people throughout history), which is the final test at the end of the great controversy to determine which side people have chosen to be on — Christ’s or Satan’s — there are only two sides and there is no middle ground. If Christ’s, then He will be their Lord and Savior, His Spirit will be in them, they will be following Him and will be found keeping the law of God (the Ten Commandments) at His return. “Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus” (Revelation 14:12). If they are Satan’s, they will be denying Christ as Lord and keeping the counterfeit laws of Satan created by the first beast (the Roman Catholic Church/Vatican State) and enforced by the second beast (the United States), thereby rebelling against the law of God. (Revelation 14:9-11). There will be many people who see themselves as Christians who will be caught in an eternally destructive position if they do not wake up and get themselves on the right track before it is too late. Come out of the apostate churches, come out of worldliness and focus on Jesus and His word, if he is in fact your Lord.  If you are not intentionally focusing on Jesus, by default you are focusing on the wrong lord. The prince of this world is not who you want to be following because you will follow him to your destruction. There is nothing in this world that is worth that end.

In Daniel 7:25 we are told: “And he shall speak great words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and think to change times and laws:…” The he of course is the little horn power of Daniel 7:7-8, for centuries plainly identified as the Roman Catholic Church/Papal Vatican power — the first beast of Revelation 13, 17 and 18. The law and times he thinks to change (he can only think to do it, as no man can actually change God’s immutable law), is God’s Ten Commandments, spoken by Him and written by Him in stone.

God first created the day in Genesis 2:3, when He rested (sabbath means “day of rest”), and blessed and sanctified it. His day of rest could not be changed, unless God destroyed everything, recreated everything and rested on, blessed and sanctified a different day.

We are told in Isaiah 58:13-14 “ If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day (God’s Day, His holy day, the day of the Lord, the Lord’s day); and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the Lord, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:  Then shalt thou delight thyself in the Lord; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.” Believe me, as a most of my Church life Sunday keeper, now a Sabbath keeper, I can assuredly confirm, if you turn from the false day of worship (Sunday, the pagan venerable day of the sun god) and keep God’s holy day, as He has commanded us to keep it, you will find yourself blessed in ways that you have never been blessed before in your Christian life. More importantly, you will avoid the mark of the beast, which if you receive it, will lead to your eternal destruction. Revelation 14:9-10.

As identified in Exodus 20:8-11, the Sabbath, the Lord’s Day, God’s holy day of rest, is the seventh day, Saturday (no matter how the dragon/Satan through the beast system may induce nations to change their calendars so that Sunday becomes the seventh day of the week, as it has already accomplished through most of Europe (Portugal, France, Spain, Germany, UK, Italy, Switzerland, Poland, Austria, Belgium, Denmark and also Greece and Mexico), God’s holy day of rest, His Sabbath that He told us to remember, is Saturday.  “Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.”

Then we have Mark 2:27-28 where Jesus said unto them “The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.” Jesus is the Lord of the sabbath because He created it, as He created all things (John 1:1-3), and as He kept it during His life and ministry on earth, so expects us to keep it also (John 14:15). 

The beloved apostle John was given the Revelation of Jesus Christ on the Sabbath Day while in exile on the Isle of Patmos. “ I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.” Revelation 1:10-11. 

This is a list, not exhaustive, of the languages that use the word sabbath or a derivative thereof for the day of the week we call Saturday, the seventh day of the week, the Sabbath of the LORD our God. Although some calendars may have been changed, and he will attempt to change them all, the beast has much work ahead of him to do away with all reference to the true Sabbath day of rest created by God Almighty, creator of heaven and earth, the sea and all that in them is. Unfortunately, a lie repeated often enough becomes truth, even when truth is staring people in the face. The bigger the lie, the more readily people accept it, especially if it is spoken by someone who has placed himself in position to be President of  the planet, as reported, presumably tongue in cheek, by Huffington Post in 2015 concerning Pope Francis. They probably had no idea how accurate a portrayal of him they publicized.

Islam and Christianity, the Basics – Daniel 11

The first video is part 1 of a 10 part series focusing on Islam and Christianity in prophecy, as described in Daniel 11; but the series covers so much of end time prophecy in Daniel and Revelation, and sheds so much light on Bible truth, that I have to strongly recommend the whole series for anyone who wants to understand what is going on in the world today, and what is coming right around the corner, so that all might be prepared. To see the complete series, visit: .

Is ISIS in Bible prophecy? Tim Roosenberg gives a brief review of the Bible prophecies of Daniel Chapter 11, the King of the North, King of the South and the role of radical Islam in the third and final conflict. This is covered in the second video above.

I have studied extensively and listened to many end time prophecy series by many excellent pastors and lecturers, but I have to say this series is the most comprehensive I have listened to, by far.
