The Truth About The Timing of "Christ-Mass"

I am going to share some quotes from the book "The Two Babylons" by the late Rev. Alexander Hislop. This book was first published in 1916.

We are going to read from chapter 3 page 91 on the topic of Festivals, we are quoting from the sections in regards to the time of Christ's birth:

"There is not a word in scriptures about the precise day of His birth, or the time of the year when He was born. What is recorded there, implies that at what time soever His birth took place, it could not have been on the 25th of December. At the time that the angel announced His birth to the shepherds of Bethlehem, they were feeding their flocks by night in the open fields. Now, no doubt, the climate of Palestine (Israel-note this book was of course written before Israel became a nation) is not so severe as the climate in this country; but even there, though the heat of the day be considerable, the cold of the night, from December to February, is piercing, and it was not the custom for the shepherds of Judea to watch their flocks in the open fields later than about the end of October. It is in the last degree incredible, then, that the birth of Christ could have taken place at the end of December."........

"At the birth of Christ every woman and child was to go the be taxed at the city whereto they belonged, wither some had long journeys; but the middle of winter was not fitting for such a business, especially for women with child, and children to travel in. Therefore, Christ could not be born in the depth of winter .............. And if any shall think the winter wind was not so extreme in these parts, let him remember the words of Christ in the gospel, "Pray that your flight be not in the winter."

"....within the Christian Church no such festival as Christmas was ever heard of till the third century, and that not till the fourth century was far advanced did it gain much observance. How then did the Romish church (Roman Catholic church) fix on December the 25th as Christmas day? Why, thus: Long before the fourth century, and long before the Christian era itself, a festival was celebrated among the heathen, at that precise time of the year, in honor of the birth of the son of the Babylonian queen of heaven; and it may fairly be presumed that, in order to conciliate the heathen, and to swell the number of the nominal adherents of Christianity, the same festival was adopted by the Roman Church, giving it only the name of Christ.
This tendency on the part of Christians to meet Paganism half-way was very early developed....."
"Upright men strove to stem the tide but in spite of all their efforts, the apostasy went on, till the Church, with the exception of a small remnant, was submerged under Pagan superstition. That Christmas was originally a Pagan Festival, is beyond all doubt."....end quotes

Rick Warren's Walking Hand in Hand with Obama

According to the news today:
"You don't have to see eye to eye to walk hand in hand"...This is Rick Warrens response to those who are in opposition to his giving the invocation for president elect Barrack Hussein Obama...Nice to see that at least he openly admits that he is hand in hand with Barrack Hussein Obama.

Well just where do you get that idea Rick? .....NOT the WORD of GOD...which says...

Amos 3:3
Can two walk together, except they be agreed?..Rick Warren you are in opposition to the Word of God!

Proverbs 1:10
My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.....Rick Warren you have been enticed!

Proverbs 4:14
Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men....Rick Warren you are on the wrong path!

Proverbs 24:1-2
1Be not thou envious against evil men, neither desire to be with them.

2For their heart studieth destruction, and their lips talk of mischief.

..Oh and.. evil companions corrupt good morals..

1 Cornithians 15:33
Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.

Another interpretation of this scripture is: "Evil companionship's corrupt good morals."
It is sad how easily people will compromise the Word of God for the sake of being the friend of a celebrity. This is idolatry.

Oh ...and be not unequally yoked together with unbelievers. ....

2 Corinthians 6:14-18

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
15And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
18And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

But hey if your Rick Warren I guess you just overlook all the scriptures and you do what is right in your own eyes.

Another Lie Via God-less TV

When Mike Bickle of IHOP speaks saints-don't listen.

Just happened to catch a snippet from an e-mail I got from "God TV" (that's a joke-it should be called God-less TV). These same people were the ones who broadcast Todd Bentley world wide to deceive thousands.

Photo shows Rory& Wendy Alec of God-less TV, with Mike Bickle at IHOP (International House of Prayer.)

He was telling all his large audience "Jesus will not come back until the church has shaken off the spirit of slumber, operates in the anointing of prayer and has a bridal identity" just where in scripture does he find that? While these things sound good, they are not truth, and we know a little leavens the whole lump. These teachings are so subtle, that the young and unlearned cannot distinguish truth from a lie.

He also states in this same video, "The center piece of what is on God's mind is to bring Heaven and Earth together." Oh really and just where do you get that from Mike Bickle?

Where in the Word of God, does Jesus say that He will not return until the "church" has made herself ready? Show us in the Word of God Mike Bickle where you find these two statements -you can't because they are not there.

Jesus said,
"Behold I come as a thief"

Revelation 16:15

Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

Jesus said "Be ye ready for in an hour that ye think not the son of man cometh"

Matthew 24:43-44, 48-51

But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

44Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

48But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

49And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

50The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

51And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Jesus speaks of the wise and the foolish virgins...Hello Mike Bickle!

Matthew 25:1-13

Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

2And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.

3They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:

4But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

5While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

6And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

7Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

8And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

9But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

10And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

11Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.

12But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

13Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Many will say in that day "But Lord I did this in your name, and I taught that in your name "and He will say-I know you not, so beware Mike Bickle and all those who teach from your own hearts that which God has not spoken, and is not written, God will not hold him guiltless who teaches false hood to His people.

And saints beware who you listen to and follow, if it is not written, it is not of God. If what your taught cannot be found within the Word of God-trash it and fast, because a false Word will be burnt up, but the truth of the Word of God will stand for all eternity.

What Fellowship Hath Light With Darkness?

What Communion hath Christ with Belial?

Obama Defends Rick Warren:

Obama's agenda for the culture of Death in this nation:

This agenda to expand the Mass Murders in this nation is Abomination pure and simple.

He who is a friend of the world is an enemy of God.

Woe unto you when all men speak well of you.
Saints we will have no need to question God's Judgment when it comes.

The Polar Shift-Are The Days Are Being Shortened?

I was watching the news today, not sure which channel but they were discussing and showing diagrams in regards to the supposed coming polar shift, you can read about it here:

Also, according to a dear sister in Christ, evidently Rush Limbaugh was discussing the same thing today in regards to the days being shortened.

Matthew 24:22
And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

Isaiah 24:17-23
Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth.
18And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake.

19The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly.

20The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.

21And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.
22And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited.

23Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.

Who Owns America?

China owns a major part of Americas Debt at least that is according to Fox News this morning. The borrower is servant to the lender.

We know that the Arabs have us by the jugular over oil.

The Russians are maneuvering and weighing their options for our destruction.

The enemies of God are working to have us bow to their god's.

Our enemies are salivating over our imminent total destruction.

America we are in a dire condition, and many still refuse to see it.

The church has its head in the sand. Rick Warren prepares to give the invocation for a socialist president who will bring this country to its knees. Perhaps it will be a good place for us to be, on our knees.

We have told God we don't need Him, we can go it on our own. We have told Him we don't need to follow after that which is right. We call good evil, and evil good. Many have made merchandise out of God's people and continue to do so. Many love the world more than they love God. Many are more concerned over their money than the condition of their own souls.

We are wise in our own eyes, we are rebellious and evil, and we think that God doesn't see and He will do nothing. Big mistake folks...we a fixing to see just how much God cares, because judgment will begin with the house of God.

Jeremiah 5:19

And it shall come to pass, when ye shall say, "Wherefore doeth the LORD our God all these things unto us?" then shalt thou answer them,..... "Like as ye have forsaken me, and served strange gods in your land, so shall ye serve strangers in a land that is not yours."

Well it's pretty clear that this land is no longer ours. Just as God judged Israel for her sins, He is now judging the Church in America for her sins. God brought judgments upon His people, the Gentile church are His people and we have sinned before God. We have been brought into bondage through our own covetousness and now we are being overcome by that covetousness.

It will become even clearer in the months to come that we are serving the strangers that now own this country.
Here is the indictment against the church:

Jeremiah 5:25-31

Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you.

26For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men.

27As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich.

28They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge.
29Shall I not visit for these things? saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?

30A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land;

31The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?

Many have grown fat on the backs of the children of God. Many have turned their backs while we have slaughtered our own children. We have commited abominations before God and shall He not judge for these things?

US Economy: The Philosophers Stone

Our Corporate Covetousness Has Destroyed Us America, and yes chicken little the sky is falling!

I ran across this yesterday and found it interesting to say the least!

Just for the record: No, I was not, nor am I now, a Ron Paul Supporter. Politics is not my thing.

They Know "Jingle Bells" But They Don't Know Jesus!

They celebrate "Christ-Mass" but they don't know Christ.

My eyes have really been opened concerning "Christ-Mass", and I am fully aware that this may make me as popular as a pork pie at a Jewish picnic, but none the less, I must share.

The Lord has been dealing with me on this subject for some time and this year, and at this time, it is has really become clear and blatant to me the contrast between "Christmas lovers" and "Christ lovers".

As I watched the news this morning a young lady was singing "Jingle Bells" all happy as a lark, and I know she doesn't know Christ or desire to live according to His Word.

Then they interviewed a little girl who was wanting a $100.00 doll for "Christ-Mass". She was trying to sell some of her other toys on "Craig's list" to purchase this other doll. The TV show evidently found this such a touching story that they purchased it for her. They were all thrilled with frankly disgusted me. This little girl, her mother and those Christ-less hosts were totally unaware that they had just taught and excellent lesson in covetousness.

That is what "Christ-Mass" is all about for most people, and I have to admit that I have fallen in that category myself for years. First I taught my kids to covet the best that we could afford for Christ-Mass, we even used to charge gifts for Christmas. Then as the years passed I began to teach the grand kids the same thing....Oh we didn't teach them about Santa Clause but we taught them to covet. We told them Christmas was all about Jesus, but it wasn't!

People say it's all about Christ, but we lie, it's all about who gets the best presents, who gives the best presents. It really is a disgustingly blatant exercise in covetousness. People say well its a time of year to get together with family, well why not get together with family all through the year, why not show love all year, why not be generous all year. Just a thought!

Then we have had "Christians" screaming not to take Christ out of Christmas, ...Christ never was in Christ-Mass...Christmas has its modern day roots in the church of Rome for the most part.

"Christ-Mass" in this day and time has been all about covetousness for years. Everyone wants a piece of "Christmas". Even the "Christian" Stores and ministries.....the covetousness is rampant, the children are drenched in it. It is all over the idiot box, everyone and there uncle has a "Christmas Special", and it's all about covetousness, not about Christ. You can see a sample of all this merchandizing of God's people here:

Just how many people are aware that Jesus was not even born in December, or that the Wise Men never visited Jesus when He was a baby?
How many know that Jesus wasn't born in a stable, more than likely He was born in a tabernacle.
For a great audio on the subject of Christmas:

While the world spends themselves silly and overeats this season, let us seek to be set free from the spirit of covetousness that overwhelms this season. God bless you all, yes I know it's hard to consider all these things, but if you want the truth seek Jesus on these things.

America, we are a nation given over to covetousness, without repentance! Look what the church is doing in Detroit ...

GOD IS TEARING DOWN YOUR IDOLS-And church your so blind that you cannot see or understand. Your lust for the things of this world have brought you to this place in history.

Big time evangelists have lead the way for all this covetousness that is leading companies to ruin. How long do you suppose its going to be before, let's say for example, that KENNETH COPELAND puts his JETS on the altar? Covetousness leads to ruin!

Daniel 12:10
Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

These people and those like them have broken the commandment of God that says-THOU SHALT NOT COVET- and they have taught the people of God to covet by their example-and their judgment is upon them, and all those who follow in their steps.

“YOU TAUGHT MY PEOPLE TO COVET, YOU CHOKED THEM ON THE THINGS OF THIS WORLD" - This will be the indictment of many a pastor and evangelist today, they make merchandise out of God’s people.

2 Peter 2:3
And through covetousness shall they with feigned words (not genuine) make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

Another Mega Church In The Making - Las Vegas Style!

Another Emerging Star-Pastor Craig Gross -Pastor of The Strip Church!

Its name is "The Strip Church"-Sin Cities Little Church House" see for yourselves: navigate it well you can click on and see photos and click on them and get loads of info.

...I happened to catch a glimpse of its "Pastor" being interview on "Night line" last night... "Sin City Saviors" is the title of the show... a few minutes is all I could stomach...Here we have another example of a segment of the "Church" re-packaging Jesus Christ in order to make Him appealing to the world, this time the target area is Las Vegas...ahhhhh...

Oh dear it seems that some never get it ... the Truth of the Gospel is all that is needed, and then the Holy Spirit goes to work on a soul... that's to easy, that doesn't gain attention or mammon!

It makes me sick how some cheapen Jesus Christ and think they have to bring Him down to a level where they see themselves better able to entice people to accept Him. They use huge signs in public reading "Jesus Loves Porn Stars". This young evangilist is along the lines of Joel Osteen in his doctrine, God Help Las Vegas!

Listen, sinners know that they are not accepted of God. Having been lost once myself I know this. All I needed was the truth and simplicty of the Gospel of Salvation preached to me, not something dressed up to resemble the world so I could accept it. I had, had enough of the world it held nothing for me, I needed to be told that I should repent of my sins.

This young pastor seeks the attention of the world, and has made it to "Nightline" , and also to the "Maury Povich Show", oh and he seeks donations to meet this yearly budget of a million plus dollars!
OH yes definitely a Rick Warren in the making ....ahhhh when will all this utter nonsense stop?

This young pastor is being hailed by other "Church" planters as some what of a marketing genius...well isn't that special! Move over Rick Warren!

Call me cynical but I just smell one huge rat in the mix here. God help this young man's soul and the souls of all who involve themselves in this endeavor.
