I have wonderful
memories of past celebrations, but I have come to realize that many of the
holiday traditions that I learned as a child, along with many of the customs that
establishing in our family, just were not in accordance with Almighty God and His
after I read and understood
the following passage from Jeremiah, the
Christ-mas tree just did not have the same appeal it
used to have.
"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." Jeremiah 10:2-4
realize these verses may be referring to an actual idol statue that was
worshipped in Jeremiah's day, but the Christ-mas tree, and all that is
involved with it, has surely become an idol for many people of the world.
I know how hard it can be
to let go of traditions of the past, but
what Almighty God thinks is truly all that matters; and obeying the LORD and
keeping His word is paramount in My View.
And by virtue of the fact that many of the activities associated with the "Christ-mas"
Season are based on lies (i.e. Santa as gift bearer); should be a major
indicator that the Evil One is involved in this holiday. After all, Satan
is the father and benefactor of all lies.
It is no wonder that
strife, hatred, envy, disappointment, and in some worst case scenarios, even
death and destruction also accompanies the celebration of Christ-mas and
"Who is a
wise man and endued with knowledge among you? Let him shew out of a good
conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. But if
ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against

devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil

meaning of words
are extremely important to keep in mind, and it is our responsibility to understand
what we believe, and to know what we have been taught by others, especially in
regard to the things of God.
I have recently made some startling discoveries
in my private studies, that I
would like to share concerning the origins of Christ-mas in relation to the
"Catechism of the
(Roman) Catholic Church."
Christ-mas literally means
"Christ's Mass." (I never thought about the meaning behind this word,
but it is obvious when you examine it.)
Jesus Christ, is the "Anointed One," as foretold by the Holy prophets,
but not all people realize this very important Truth. And many who claim to know Him
really do not--they have actually met "another Jesus."
"But I fear, lest by any means, as
the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted
from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth
another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit,
which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not
accepted, ye might well bear with him." 2 Corinthians 11:3-4
The Mass is the ceremony whereby a Roman Catholic priest offers up an
"un-bloody sacrifice of Christ" in the celebration of the Eucharist. (Please
note that "mass" also comes from the
Latin, feminine past participle of mittere,
which means to "send away, dismiss."
Eucharist is one of the seven sacraments,
of the Catholic Church. (According to
the Roman Catholic Church, when the
priest consecrates the bread
and wine in the Eucharist, they cease to be bread and wine, and
they believe that it actually becomes the body and blood of Christ.)
This "mysterious change" is also
known as "transubstantiation;"
and only "a validly ordained priest
acting as a representative of Christ," approved of by "The Roman
Catholic Church," is authorized to
"celebrate the rite and consecrate the Eucharist."
also very important to note that the Roman Catholic Church does not consider the
the Protestant churches to be valid, since they consider them rebellious children
that must fall back under the "Roman Catholic Church" and fully submit to the authority of the Supreme leadership of the
"infallible" Roman Pontiff--the
Pope, who claims to be the Vicar/substitute for Christ, a.k.a. "The Holy
"I marvel that ye are so soon removed from Him that called you into the grace of
Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble
you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that
which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you
than that ye have received, let him be accursed." Galatians 1:6-9
The evidence that I Am presenting here is based on the
Holy Scriptures, the "Catechism of the Catholic Church" and "Code
of Canon Law." Please consider the following from the Vatican's official
This is the meaning of the Church's affirmation49
that the sacraments act ex opere operato (literally: 'by the very fact
of the action's being performed'), i.e., by virtue of the saving work of Christ,
accomplished once for all. It follows that 'the sacrament is not wrought by the
righteousness of either the celebrant or the recipient, but by the power of God'50
From the moment that a sacrament is celebrated in accordance with the
intention of the Church, the power of Christ and his Spirit acts in and
through it, independently of the personal holiness of the minister.
Nevertheless, the fruits of the sacraments also depend on the disposition of
the one who receives them.
The Church affirms that for
believers the sacraments of the New Covenant are necessary for
In other words, according to the Roman Catholic Church their Baptism,
Confirmation, Eucharist, Confession, etc. are "necessary for salvation." And
regardless of the "personal holiness of the minister," under the rules of Canon
Law, "Can. 900 §1. The minister who is able to confect the sacrament of the
the bread and the wine so that they become the Body and Blood of the Lord)
in the person of Christ is a validly ordained priest alone." Additionally,
they believe that "the fruits of the sacraments" are dependant on the character
of the recipients.
I guess this explains why the Roman Catholic hierarchy chose to shelter
abusive priests and move them to other
parishes so as to cover their sin rather than exposing and excommunicating them, since "the minister's personal
holiness" is not a factor when administering the "sacraments."
consider what God thinks about the innocent little ones that have been abused
and misled by those wolves in sheep's clothing!
"For whosoever shall
give you a cup of water to drink in My name, because ye belong to Christ, verily
I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward. And whosoever shall offend one
of these little ones that believe in Me, it is better for him that a
millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea." Mark
Not until recently have I begun to understand
the anti-Christian nature of the Roman Catholic Church, but I Am sure
that my Real Father had
a hand in me leaving "The Church" years ago when my Mary was a
baby. (Just a note: she was named after my Husbands' grandmother.)
The one thing that bothered me the most while
growing up as a Catholic was being accused of worshipping Mary. I would tell my
accusers that I did not worship Mary, but I did respect her as Jesus' mother.
However, as I now see it, the Catholic Church
certainly does advocate the worship of Mary, and I hope you will agree after you
examine the official documents as noted below from the "Code of Canon Law" and the "Catechism of the Catholic
"III MARY - ESCHATOLOGICAL ICON OF THE CHURCH"
"2682...May our most
gracious God grant this through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
the Mother of the Church, her spouse St. Joseph, Patron of the Church, and
Saints Peter and Paul."
"966 Finally the
Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of original sin, when
the course of her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into
heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen over all things,"
all-holy ever-virgin Mother of God, is the masterwork of the mission of the
Son and the Spirit in the fullness of time...

grace, conceived without sin as the most humble of creatures, the most
capable of welcoming the inexpressible gift of the Almighty."
goes before us all in the holiness that is the Church's mystery as 'the
bride without spot or wrinkle.'194 This is why the 'Marian'
dimension of the Church precedes the 'Petrine.'195"
"2146 The second commandment
forbids the abuse of God's name, i.e., every improper use of the names of
God, Jesus Christ, but also of the Virgin Mary and all the saints.
Mary is the perfect
(pray-er), a figure of the Church. When we pray to her, we are adhering
with her to the plan of the Father, who sends his Son to save all men. Like the
beloved disciple we welcome Jesus' mother into our homes,39 for she
has become the mother of all the living. We can pray with and to her. The
prayer of the Church is sustained by the prayer of Mary and united with it in
"2677...By asking Mary to pray for us, we acknowledge ourselves to be poor sinners
and we address ourselves to the 'Mother of Mercy,' the All-Holy One.
We give ourselves over to her now, in the Today of our lives. And our trust broadens
further, already at the present moment, to surrender 'the hour of our death'
wholly to her care."
"966 Finally the
Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of original sin, when the
course of her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into
heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen over all things,"
"969...Taken up to heaven
she did not lay aside this saving office but by her manifold intercession
continues to bring us the gifts of eternal salvation....Therefore the
Blessed Virgin is invoked in the Church under the titles of 'Advocate, Helper,
Benefactress, and Mediatrix.'510
144 To obey (from the Latin
ob-audire, to 'hear or listen to') in faith is to submit freely to the word
that has been heard, because its truth is guaranteed by God, who is Truth
itself. Abraham is the model of such obedience offered us by Sacred Scripture.
The Virgin Mary is its most perfect embodiment."

as Vicar of Christ, and as pastor of the entire Church has full, supreme,
and universal power over the whole Church, a power which he can always
'The college or body of bishops has no authority
unless united with the Roman Pontiff, Peter's successor, as its head.' As such,
this college has 'supreme and full authority over the universal Church; but this
power cannot be exercised without the agreement of the Roman Pontiff.'404
'The college of bishops exercises power over the universal
Church in a solemn manner in an ecumenical council.'405 But
'there never is an ecumenical council which is not confirmed or at least
recognized as such by Peter's successor.'406
'The Roman Pontiff, head of the college of bishops,

infallibility promised to the Church is also present in the body of bishops

THE SUPREME AUTHORITY OF THE CHURCH (Cann. 330 - 367)
Can. 330 ...the Roman Pontiff, the successor of Peter, and the bishops,
the successors of the Apostles, are united among themselves.

§3. No appeal or recourse

Can. 334 Bishops assist
the Roman Pontiff in exercising his office... The
cardinals also assist him, as do other persons and various institutes according
to the needs of the times. In his name and by his authority, all these persons
and institutes fulfill the function entrusted to them for the good of all the
churches, according to the norms defined by law.
Can. 335 When the
See is vacant or entirely impeded, nothing is to be altered in the governance of
the universal Church...
Art. 2. THE COLLEGE OF BISHOPS
The college of
bishops, whose head is the Supreme Pontiff and whose members are bishops by
virtue of sacramental consecration and hierarchical communion with the head and
members of the college and in which the apostolic body continues, together
with its head and never without this head, is also the subject of supreme
and full power offer (over) the universal Church.
Can. 337 §1. The college
of bishops exercises power offer (over) the universal Church in a solemn manner in an

So, according to the
teachings of the Roman Catholic Church:
The Pope is Peter's
The Pope is infallible by
virtue of his office.
The Pope is the Vicar or
substitute for Christ on this earth.
The Pope has full, supreme,
and universal power over the whole Church.
The Pope has full power and
authority over all ecumenical councils.
The Pope must approve all
decrees of the ecumenical council.
The Pope has full authority
over the college of bishops.
The Pope has the final word
with no appeal process whatsoever.
The Pope seeks to have power
over all men everywhere.
The Roman Catholic Church, under the supreme authority of the Pope, are guilty
of usurping the power and authority that belongs to Christ, and they have misused
God's Holy name in order to deceive the masses.

are a part of this Apostate Church or have willingly joined with this corrupt
become a partaker of their evil deeds.

falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who
opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is
worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that
he is God." 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4
In essence, Christ-mas is the dismissal of Christ! That, is exactly what the
Roman Catholic Church has done! And under false pretenses they have led the
world into an all-out celebration of the anti-Christ!
course, many people who celebrate Christ-mas genuinely love God, and they are
just commemorating the birth of Jesus, just as my family did for years, but
after I found out that the Devil is behind Christ-mas (Christ's Mass), I can't
even put the two words together.
can be very disheartening if you are seeing the Truth about all of this for the first time, and I
you will not dismiss this. While I was Walking With The Enemy I believed some pretty outrageous things, so I fully
understand how easy it is to be deceived. Which is why it is so important to take
heed as to who and what you believe.
"Take heed, brethren, lest there
be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.
But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be
hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we are made partakers of
Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end; While
it is said, Today if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, as in the
provocation." Hebrews 3:12-15
who claim to be followers of Jesus Christ are provoking God to anger with their
blasphemy, including the
"Promise Keepers" of the "Purpose Driven Church," who have fallen for

the Charismatic and Ecumenical movements, along with the smooth talking
preachers and movie makers who claim to have a

deceptions of the Devil, please come out from among them. It is an extremely
dangerous place to be in these Final Days!
"And he cried mightily with a
strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the
habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every
unclean and hateful bird.
For all nations have drunk of the
wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed
fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the
abundance of her delicacies.
And I heard another voice from
heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her
sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto
heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
Reward her even as she rewarded
you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she
hath filled fill to her double. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived
deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I
sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
Therefore shall her plagues come
in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned
with fire: for strong is the LORD God who judgeth her." Revelations
God has been warning His people to come out of the Darkness for a while, and
if the Holy Spirit has convicted you of sin in your heart, please do not dismiss
His Voice. You never know if it may be your last chance to hear the Truth before
the Final Judgment Day.
prayerfully consider what the
LORD said on
February 1993 when the True Light gave me "eyes to see and ears to hear"

There are varying opinions as to when Jesus'
birth actually took place, and I would like to present another
possibility of what could have happened when the True Light of Christ entered
into this very dark and dying world as Jesus--the only begotten Son of the Most
"And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city
of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph,
of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.
the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the
LORD is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what
manner of salutation this should be.
the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt
call His name JESUS.
shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the LORD God
shall give unto Him the throne of His father David: And He shall reign over the
house of Jacob for ever; and of His kingdom there shall be no end.
said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the
angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the
Power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that Holy thing which
shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God."
I realize this may
be referring to the 6th month of Elizabeth's
pregnancy with John, as most people presume; but if this "announcement" took place during the 6th
Jewish month of Elul, the following is very possible.
On 1 Tishrei,
(7th Jewish month--late September/early October)
Blowing of the Trumpets took place to signify that an extremely momentous event was about to
10 Tishrei, Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit on this most Holy Day of Atonement,
also known as
whereby the High Priest made atonement for the sins of the people.
15-21 Tishrei is the
Feast of Tabernacles, also known as Sukkot,
which is a joyous holiday for God's people. Likewise, it would have been a special celebration in Heaven
since the Messiah was now in the world.
So, if these dates are correct, the birth of the Holy One of Israel
could have taken place during the Feast of Pentecost, a.k.a.
Shavuot, during the 3rd Jewish month of Sivan/June; but only if
His birth was to have occurred in the year when the additional month of II Adar
I realize all of this is conjecture, but it would really be amazing if it took
place just as I have described. The
birth of the LORD Jesus Christ, is an extremely important
event, because if He had never been born all of mankind would be without Hope in
this very hopeless world.
is interesting to note that according to the Holy Scriptures, 6 Sivan is when the Holy
Spirit was given at Pentecost, (Acts 2:1) and also when God gave the Ten
Commandments at Mount Sinai. (See Exodus 19-20)
Admittedly, the exact date of Jesus' birth is not as explicitly revealed in the
Holy Scriptures as the very day in which He was crucified. In fact,
right before He was brutally murdered by the Romans at the insistence of the
Jesus told His
disciples to celebrate
the Passover in remembrance of Him and His death, until He comes again.
"For I have received of the LORD that which also I
delivered unto you, That the LORD Jesus the same night in which He was
betrayed took bread: and when He had given thanks, He brake it, and said,
Take, eat: this is My body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of
After the same manner also He took the cup, when He had supped,
saying, This cup is the New Testament in My blood: this do ye, as oft as ye
drink it, in remembrance of Me.
For as often as ye eat this bread, and
drink this cup, ye do shew the LORD'S death till He come. Wherefore whosoever
shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the LORD unworthily, shall be
guilty of the body and blood of the LORD." I Corinthians 11:23-27
There will be a Day of Reckoning for all
those who have willfully rejected Almighty God and the True Messiah
of Israel, especially those who claim to represent the LORD Jesus Christ and His
"Woe be unto
the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture! saith the LORD.
Therefore thus saith the LORD God
of Israel against the pastors that feed My people; Ye have scattered my flock,
and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you
the evil of your doings, saith the LORD.
And I will gather the remnant of
My flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them
again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase. And I will set up
shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be
dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the LORD.
Behold, the days come, saith the
LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign
and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. In His
days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is His name
whereby He shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
Therefore, behold, the days come,
saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up
the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; but, The LORD liveth, which
brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north
country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell
in their own land.
Mine heart within me is broken
because of the prophets; all my bones shake; I am like a drunken man, and like a
man whom wine hath overcome, because of the LORD, and because of the words of
His holiness. For the land is full of adulterers; for because of swearing the
land mourneth; the pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up, and their
course is evil, and their force is not right.
For both prophet and priest are
profane; yea, in My house have I found their wickedness, saith the LORD.
Wherefore their way shall be unto
them as slippery ways in the Darkness: they shall be driven on, and fall
therein: for I will bring evil upon them, even the year of their visitation,
saith the LORD." Jeremiah 23:1-12
Roman Catholic Church may have dismissed Jesus Christ for a Time, but one great
and dreadful Day the Judgment will come, and all who worship the Wicked One
will pay for all the evil deeds they have done.
"For true and righteous are His
judgments: for He hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with
her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of His servants at her hand."
John willingly gave his life in service to the LORD, and God gave him
the boldness to proclaim the message that he was given. And that message is the same
for Today, when "He said, I Am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, make
straight the way of the LORD, as said the prophet Esaias
(Isaiah 40:3-5)." John 1:23
John prepared the way for the "True Light" to
come into this Dark world, and
if my scenario is correct, he would have been the one who was born in the winter during the
Festival of Lights/Feast
of Dedication, a.k.a. Hanukah,

realize that what I Am saying in this article is extremely controversial, but so
are the rest of my writings. I just ask you to prayerfully consider what I have
written, and judge what I say by the word of God, and not the words of men. And
may God give you the understanding.
"There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.
And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye Him? Others
said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the
eyes of the blind? And it was at Jerusalem the Feast of the Dedication, and it
was winter. And Jesus walked in the Temple in Solomon's porch." John
We may never know some of the specific details pertaining to this life, but regardless of what Day
the LORD Jesus Christ actually came into this world to save mankind from sin,
Satan, and the power of Darkness, all of us who are true Christians, should proclaim
from our hearts every day of the year how thankful and blessed we are that the
true Christ has come indeed, and that He has given us everything we need.
"And many other signs truly did
Jesus in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book: But
these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of
God; and that believing ye might have life through His name." John 20:30-31
"And this is Life Eternal, that
they might know Thee the only True God, and Jesus Christ, whom Thou hast sent."

One of Israel, be with all who are seeking to worship Him in Spirit and in

to live forever with Him in that wonderful place that He has prepared for those who truly love
and adore Him!

"Now when Jesus was born in
Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men
from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is He that is born King of the Jews?
For we have seen His star in the east, and are come to worship Him." Matthew
"That was the True Light, which lighteth
every man that
cometh into the world." John 1:9
There are many lights in this world, but just one
“True Light.” The LORD aptly warned His disciples that in the Final Days, “many
shall come in My name, saying I Am Christ; and shall deceive many;” and if
possible, even the very elect.
Only by walking in the True Light can we know who
is true and who is false; who is of God and who is not; who is in the Light and
who is in the Darkness. And only through Almighty God can we genuinely have
“eyes to see” the Truth.
If you see that you are “Walking With The Enemy,”
you need to call upon the name of the LORD from a sincere and repentant heart.
Only He can save your soul from eternal death. After all, what is your Life? And what are you truly
living for? This world, or the world that is to come wherein dwelleth
Righteousness and true Peace?
In conclusion, I hope you will prayerfully
consider these words of Wisdom. They were written over 2000 years ago, in a
different Day and Age, but they still have great eternal significance. “The
number of a man’s days at the most are an hundred years. As a drop of water unto
the sea, and a gravel stone in comparison of the sand; so are a thousand years
to the Days of Eternity.”
us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep His commandments:
for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work
into Judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether
it be evil." Ecclesiastes
