Christmas

Dear brothers and sisters,

We are nearing Christmas. This is THE time that we celebrate the birth of our savior, Jesus! It is very good to use these two days to spent together with your loved ones and celebrate this event.

But make sure that you put Jesus in the middle of the attention. During this holiday most of us will have a Christmas tree in the house and celebrate the birth of Jesus. But you should be aware that this isn’t actually the exact date of Jesus’ birth. No, to be exact it is the date on which pagans celebrate the birth of the sun. The devil loves to deceive us and this is just one of many examples, because he knows that when he uses pagan rituals in Christian holidays that people are more likely to reject God. But as Christians we should still use these days to celebrate the birth of Jesus, but so should we the rest of the year.

Based on historical calculations a more like time of birth would be around 13 – 19 June. Some very clear reasons that 25th of December is unlikely is the fact that the shepherds were still in the field (not likely in December) and Joseph and Mary went to Bethlehem for a counting. This also would not be conducted in the middle of the winter.

Furthermore, the Christmas tree isn’t a Christian item at all. The Christmas tree comes from the pagan worship of trees. Although it looks very nice to have in the home and does add to the whole Christmas feeling the presence of the tree is wrong. As Christians we shouldn’t have items in our house of other religions.

Of course I understand this can be hard to digest, but please bring it in prayer how to deal with this. And know that first and foremost our praise and worship of God should be always the center of these days.

God bless you!

  1. Do you have an other saviour than the Christians who keep to the birthday of Jeshua (Jesus Christ), which they call the real Messiah, and to the same Jesus of the Muslims which was not born on the 25th of December?

    Why do you find Christians should still use these days to celebrate the birth of Jesus, though you agree christians also should celebrate it for the rest of the year?

    Why do you as a Christian do not keep to the days given by Allah, the God of Abraham and Jesus, to remember or celebrate?

    1. As a Christian I do not follow anything from the Koran or as stated by Allah. For me there is only on God and that is the God as is worshipped by both Jews and Christians. Both Christians and Jews acknowledge Jesus to be the Son of God. The only difference of opinion is whether Jesus was born already or still has to come. The Koran however does not acknowledge Jesus as the Son of God and is therefore wrong.

      Furthermore, I stated clearly in my post why we should not specifically (only) celebrate the birth of Jesus on the 25th of December, considering we should be very grateful and feel blessed every day that Jesus was born, considering He died for our sins. For some people they only celebrate the birth of Jesus during Christmas, which is not the exact date of his birth. My main point was to always celebrate His birth due to the amazing and blessed impact He has had and still has.

      1. Why do you as a Christian do not follow anything from Allah, whilst the Jew Jeshua or Jesus Christ only wanted to do the Will of Allah and worshipped that Only One True God, the God of Abraham and the God of all Jews, which is not a trinitarian God? Should a follower of Christ, what a Christian should be, not believe what their master teacher says, and should they not worship the same God as Jesus did?

      2. As part of the coming end time the attempts to have one religion will increase, just like you are now trying with Christianity and Judaism on the one side and Islam on the other. However, they are not the same as both Judaism and Christianity acknowledge Jesus to be the Son of God and Islam clearly rejects Jesus to be the Son of God. Any book or religion that does not fully confirms all that God has stated in the Bible is clearly not talking about the same God.

        So Yes, as Christians we need to follow God/Jesus/Holy Spirit. But the Bible also clearly states we are not allowed to follow false idols. And Allah is therefore a false idol in my opinion.

  2. You write ” As Christians we shouldn’t have items in our house of other religions.” but do you take Jesus also to be your god and being the God? When he would be God why do you allow then such statues of a baby god and statues and crosses on which your god would be shown? Though Allah is very clear we may not make any graven image of Him.

    1. Jesus is part of the Holy Trinity (God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are 3 in 1), which is clearly 1 God.

      If you would carefully study the Bible (a remark that a lot of Christians and Catholics should also really take into consideration) it is clearly mentioned that God does not allow any statues and such of Him. When the Romans noticed that the Christians were becoming more and more influential, they decided also to be open to follow God. However, they were not willing to let go of all their other “gods” and they made a mix of Christianity and the other believes. These statues are not part of Christianity and people should really realize this and not allow it in their homes.

  3. You write “As part of the coming end time the attempts to have one religion will increase, just like you are now trying with Christianity and Judaism on the one side and Islam on the other.” But should they not integrate into one happy family all believing the same thing, worshipping the same God as Abraham and Jesus did?

    When you want to refuse that the world shall have one religion, you are refusing the Kingdom of God, because there will only be place for those who love God and who want to worship only One true Divine God of gods.

    You yourself state that “the Bible also clearly states we are not allowed to follow false idols. ” but than you come to say that God Himself is a false idol, because you write “And Allah is therefore a false idol in my opinion.” Allah is in many languages the title of a high place person and is also the title given to the divine Creator. In Catholic and Protestant Bible translations in those languages, like mine you may find this word of Arabic roots. Do you then belief the Vatican gave an imprimatur to books which praise the false god or false idol?

    I would agree that Catholics have a false god, namely a three-headed god, but you also claim to worship a tri-une god. Though perhaps that is an other tri-une god than the Egyptians, Aztecs, Catholics and other peoples worshipped/worship?

    And should we not all come to worship Only One True God?
