Homeschool Jubilee and the Yellow Rose

If you’re a Christian couple or single parent wanting to homeschool your children in the oppressive Nazified cultic environment today — I advise you in the Name of Jesus Christ: GET TO THE GREAT STATE OF TEXAS IN THE GOOD OL’ US OF A! Texas is the free-est state in the world for homeschoolers. Doesn’t that speak for itself folks? The wealthiest, most successful state in the world, is also the one which supports homeschooling best! Get it? Free, undogmatic schooling, makes the best brains and therefore makes the best economy. Out of all the states in America, Texas has the most open and easy homeschooling system. What you do over your homethreshold is YOUR business, not the “government’s”. And that’s how things are run in Texas. (At the moment, that is, unless and until the cults take over, so hurry!) The state school system in other countries and many other states too is totally dominated by the Vatican and Freemasons of the Ecumenical Council. Those perverts and pedophiles regularly abuse children in the state-run systems. They don’t even hide their agenda much these days. They openly promote sodomy and perversion and anti-Ten-Commandments stuff in their curricula. Have a look, by contrast, at the many many homeschool support groups in Texas at this link: click here. If you’re persecuted abroad, because you’re trying to homeschool your kids in a Christian Bible-believing environment, I would say your best move is to apply for a B2 or similar “business” visa to Texas USA which lasts for several years, and covers your family too, then you can apply for change of status to a US citizenship application whilst in the USA on that visa. If you aren’t able to homeschool yourself, because of lack of teaching ability, you’re still better off coming to Texas, as they have the best Bible-believing independent schools here too. God bless you richly in your search for Christian freedom.

AlSisi-Care

You’ve probably heard it’s been announced the Egyptian Army’s found a cure for Aids! Yes! The discovery has been disputed, of course. But I can tell you officially. It’s true! The Egyptians have got the answer for Aids! It’s AlSisi-Care. Not Obama-Care — the opposite — AlSisi-Care. What you do is you put in a strong, righteous, God-fearing military man, who rounds up all the perverts, trouble-making radicals, anti-Christian hoodlums and dumps em in a military “hospital”. It works. You can see how it’s working in Egypt. Pity we don’t have a bit of AlSisi-Care over here in the USA. That’d eradicate the fawning pseudo-Muslim perverts and the trendy antichrists. Take a leaf out of the Egyptians’ book. Get a hero like Al Sisi and it’ll solve the Aids problem!

PS. Get over there on your vacation to Egypt. Have a look round the Great Pyramid in Cairo, God’s signpost, and take a trip down to Joseph’s Lake, the Fayum. See the works of Moses in Luxor and at Hatshepsut’s temple. The place is well protected now by Al Sisi’s men. Don’t believe the media’s black shots of Muslim riots. Give Al Sisi a blessing by supporting his economy! God bless the people and leader of Egypt!

Bump Both Parties Off!

Election season coming round. Don’t vote for the anti-Bible Sodomite Democrats, and don’t vote either for the pro-Vaticanite Republicans or the “anything goes” libertarians. You’ve been dished up a rancid hand. Vote for any independent Bible-believing politician who puts Jesus Christ and the great Christian Constitution of the United States first.

City on a Pill. Or, the CRIMINAL Drug-companies are guilty of mass-murder

The terrible and heart-rending death of Mr. Deeds’ son and his own severe wounding in the incident tells us all– TIME TO PROSECUTE THE DRUG-COMPANIES. They are POISONING en masse the public, especially the vulnerable young, and feeding them psycho-tropic (mind-altering) drugs supposedly for depression, slimming — all kinds of excuses — for their own fat profits. They are doing this with the full backing of the FDA, and the government. They are now allowed to advertise these drugs and sell em like candy on TV, and other outlets. THEY ARE CRIMINALS AND DESERVE TO BE EXECUTED. LIKEWISE THE GOVERNMENT WHO AUTHORIZES THESE POISONS TO BE SOLD. That’s why you see such a rash of peculiar murders, deaths, suicides, crazy, dangerous, incidents occurring. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Kids are told by so-called “psychiatrists” and “doctors” they should take this and that drug — then BANG — they’ve gone out of their skull. Suicide. Knifings, massacres, rampages, etc. etc. etc. DO SOMETHING NOW TO STOP THE DRUG-COMPANY MASSACRING. People take drugs when they really need God. Get a heavy dose of JESUS CHRIST, AMERICA, and you’ll return to your God-given role of city on a hill, NOT city on a pill.

Since these brave soldiers are giving their lives right now fighting the evil of fanatical Othmanic Islam, it’s good to find out where this vile little cult came from. You can get the facts at this link: The Original Christian Quran in standard HTML to read online (left-click here). Or, to print out, in PDF format: The Original Christian Quran PDF (right-click here, Save As …) — This describes the real origins of the Quran, showing it was originally a Nestorian Christian “Recitation” (Quran means “Recitation”) of Christian beliefs given through the Christian prophet Sergius Bahira to the illiterate Arab peasant-boy Muhammad. Later, the text of the Quran was corrupted and present Islam is based on this corrupted text.

Egypt is blessed as the “people of God” and Syria as the “work of God’s hands” along with Israel “God’s Inheritance”

Read Isaiah chapter 19 and you’ll get what is happening right now in the Near East. This chapter of Isaiah tells us that in the end-time God will “ride on a cloud” and come into Egypt. At that time, Egypt will enter a time of civil unrest, followed by the dictatorship of an evil ruler. God after that will raise up Egypt as “God’s people”, and along with Egypt He will make Syria (the ancient Bible name of Syria was “Assyria”) the “work of God’s hands”. Together, Egypt on one side, and Syria on the other, along with Israel in the middle of them, will form a threefold alliance with a highway running between all three, and God will say “Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance.“. God rode in on a swift cloud on Feb 28 1963 when 7 angels forming a huge stratospheric cloud 35 miles across over Arizona, commissioned the last day prophet Brother William Branham to reveal the secrets of the Seven Seals of Revelation, which Jesus would open up to him. (You can download or play Brother Branham’s messages by going to the following link: http://www.christianhospitality.org/resources/accessdb.php.) These angels are currently at work in the world setting up the scene for the physical return of Jesus Christ (see 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10). Following that event the world has slided into chaos, and now God is doing in the Near East just what He prophesied through His prophet Isaiah: He is working in Egypt and Syria to turn these nations back to Himself, and away from the corrupted Othmanic Quran. You can see from this prophecy that it is God who is causing these revolutions in Egypt and Syria. It says in Isaiah 19:20 “they shall cry unto the LORD because of the oppressors, and He shall send them a Savior, and a Great One, and He shall deliver them.” The Washington regime under the Dictator Obama is trying to hijack these revolutions to put in a Muslim dictatorship — but God will turn that around as prophesied here, to bring about an end-time alliance and peace between Egypt, Syria and Israel. Praise God! Please note I have added some headings (in bold italics) to help you see what each passage is talking about.

Isaiah Chapter 19:

God rides in on the Cloud of Seven Angels (1963 onwards) — End Time scenario starts and God begins to destroy the Egyptian idolatrous religion of Mother and Child worship (worship of Isis and Horus which became worship of the “Virgin Mary” blasphemously named “Mother of God”)

1 The burden of Egypt. Behold, the LORD rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it.

Civil Unrest begins in Egypt (2011 onwards) leading to a fruitless attempt to get help from fanatical false religion (false idolatrous “Christianity” and Othmanic Islam)

2 And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom.
3 And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards.

Rise of the ultimate Dictator (the Roman Antichrist, Daniel 8:23) in power over Egypt

4 And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Lord, the LORD of hosts.

Climate change produces catastrophic water shortages in Egypt

5 And the waters shall fail from the sea, and the river shall be wasted and dried up.
6 And they shall turn the rivers far away; and the brooks of defence shall be emptied and dried up: the reeds and flags shall wither.
7 The paper reeds by the brooks, by the mouth of the brooks, and every thing sown by the brooks, shall wither, be driven away, and be no more.
8 The fishers also shall mourn, and all they that cast angle into the brooks shall lament, and they that spread nets upon the waters shall languish.
9 Moreover they that work in fine flax, and they that weave networks, shall be confounded.
10 And they shall be broken in the purposes thereof, all that make sluices and ponds for fish.

Isaiah the prophet of God denounces the magicians of Egypt in his own day as unable to prophesy these last time events

11 ¶Surely the princes of Zoan are fools, the counsel of the wise counsellors of Pharaoh is become brutish: how say ye unto Pharaoh, I am the son of the wise, the son of ancient kings?
12 Where are they? where are thy wise men? and let them tell thee now, and let them know what the LORD of hosts hath purposed upon Egypt.
13 The princes of Zoan are become fools, the princes of Noph are deceived; they have also seduced Egypt, even they that are the stay of the tribes thereof.
14 The LORD hath mingled a perverse spirit in the midst thereof: and they have caused Egypt to err in every work thereof, as a drunken man staggereth in his vomit.

End-time lack of work opportunities in Egypt and demasculization of the men

15 Neither shall there be any work for Egypt, which the head or tail, branch or rush, may do.
16 In that day shall Egypt be like unto women: and it shall be afraid and fear because of the shaking of the hand of the LORD of hosts, which he shaketh over it.

Israel will become the most feared foe in Egypt at the End-time

17 And the land of Judah shall be a terror unto Egypt, every one that maketh mention thereof shall be afraid in himself, because of the counsel of the LORD of hosts, which he hath determined against it.

Five cities (Cairo, Alexandria, Giza, Port Said, Suez, the main cities) speak the same language the ancient Canaanites used to speak (that is, the Semitic language Arabic, not the ancient Egyptian language), one of them the “City of Destruction” translated in Greek as “Heliopolis”, that is modern Cairo

18 ¶In that day shall five cities in the land of Egypt speak the language of Canaan, and swear to the LORD of hosts; one shall be called, The city of destruction.

The Pyramid of Giza, the tomb of the king with an empty burial-box, the Pyramid being called a “pillar” or “lofty monument” in Hebrew, becomes a sign and testimony (“witness”) of the empty tomb of Jesus (the “altar to the LORD”), and of the second coming of Christ at the End-time (the arrival of the absent “Capstone” of the Pyramid). Christ will be the “Savior and Great One” who will save Egypt from its Pharaoh-like dictator-oppressors. The Pyramid of Giza is located in the middle of the land of Egypt, and also at the border, because ancient Egypt was divided into two provinces, with Giza at the border of the two.

19 In that day shall there be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the LORD.
20 And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry unto the LORD because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a saviour, and a great one, and he shall deliver them.
21 And the LORD shall be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians shall know the LORD in that day, and shall do sacrifice and oblation; yea, they shall vow a vow unto the LORD, and perform it.
22 And the LORD shall smite Egypt: he shall smite and heal it: and they shall return even to the LORD, and he shall be intreated of them, and shall heal them.

Egypt will become then the people of God along with Syria (anciently called “Assyria”) and Israel, the Blessed People in the middle of the two.

23 ¶In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians.
24 In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land:
25 Whom the LORD of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance.”

The Sodomite crypto-Muslim pseudo-President’s latest tricks

Did you notice the latest tricks?
INAUGURATION TRICK.
We were waiting for the catch. Yet again it was trumpeted out that the Sodomite dictator would be sworn in again on LINCOLN’S BIBLE and even on Martin Luther King’s Bible AS WELL — PHEW!!!!! TWO BIBLES NO LESS. Well there had to be a catch. And yes — it came. The catch was Inauguration day is the 20th which happened to be a Sunday this year, SOOOOOOOO — let’s have a PRIVATE SWEARING IN ON SUNDAY and another public swearing-in on MONDAY. Strange. No need of course to do this, as Sunday is perfectly OK for inauguration day. Well, last time the excuse for a private ceremony was he flubbed the public oath. That meant the crypto-Muslim dictator could be sworn in in a private ceremony WITHOUT A BIBLE. Obviously that trick wouldn’t work a second time, People’d be suspicious of a repeat flub. So what to do? Say it’s a Sunday and have a private ceremony again on Sunday, etc. etc. Get it? Then in this private ceremony they can USE THE “FAMILY BIBLE” (READ QURAN) to swear in on. Have a look at the photo — WHAT’S THAT BOOK???? Silly games again by the crypto-Muslim dictator.

inauguration con

This being the turn of the “Naughty Boy” party (the Democrats) to control the regime in Washington, we also get Trick #2:
That is, instead of setting a “new debt ceiling” (higher than the ridiculous current 16+ trillion dollars), which would show up the total lack of ability to control the public debt, we are now told they’re gonna “keep it the same” but say that “IT WON’T APPLY TILL MAY”!!! Oh great!!! That means — NO DEBT CEILING AT ALL TILL AT LEAST MAY. Now, can you imagine if that was YOU AND YOUR TAX-BILL? If YOU didn’t pay your bills, buddy, they’d be in there with the IRS machine-guns at 2 o’clock in the morning and hauling you off to the Federal compound. You try saying “IT WON’T APPLY TILL MAY”!!!! As you can see, the pseudo-President was put in for one major and one minor reason: ONE — TO RUIN THE AMERICAN ECONOMY AS FAST AS POSSIBLE — TWO, to attack the power of the Jewish lobby in America.
Trick #3
This already passed long ago. That was THE COMPLETE FAKE ELECTION. They are now using COMPUTERIZED SYSTEMS TO COUNT THE VOTES WITH NO MEANS OF CHECKING THE ACCURACY OF THE FIGURES. Computerized readings can be altered on-the-fly by an expert with a mobile phone right outside the counting-station or anywhere else for that matter. It’s a joke. Forget that result, and any other using computerized systems. It used to be difficult to fake results with a set of ol’ ladies in the local precinct counting the ballots by hand — they’d hit you with their purses if you tried to interfere with the ballots. NOW IT’S EASY-CHEESY. BACK TO HAND-WRITTEN BALLOTS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE OR YOU’LL NEVER HAVE ANOTHER AUTHENTIC ELECTION AGAIN.

Current Stage of the Vatican-Freemason Take-Over of the USA

The Vatican-Freemason alliance is now ready to dismantle the US Constitutional Republic. By deceiving the majority of Bible-believing American Christians with a poisonous mix of false so-called “Christian” cultism, they have weakened the body politic sufficiently to deal the death-blow. The Vatican masquerades as the “Roman Catholic Church” and the Freemasons go under the name of “Protestant” churches headed up in the so-called “World Council of Churches”. Working in combination, they have put in a puppet “President” who is not even qualified to be President because his father was not a US citizen. They’ve flooded Congress with petty little female politicianettes and Sodomite wimps, who are so currupt morally they don’t know the difference any more between right and wrong. They’ve doped and demoralized the population by drug-sex culture till their basic Bible faith is not sufficient to combat the take-over by the ruling elite. They’ve switched policing into an arm of State oppression by criminalizing ordinary decent citizens instead of targetting the real criminals — drug-dealers, pimps, prostitutes, gangsters and swindlers. In other words it’s just like the Bible said it would be — the Harlot False Church System riding the 7-headed Beast all over the US wilderness. Great! Ripe for the devastating judgment of God’s wrath! The Jubilee of the faithful few, the real Bride of Jesus Christ, is starting — right up the Celestial cross-roads to the Heaven of God’s Love! Happy Inauguration Day, folks!

==============
PS. The First Amendment to the US Constitution — that great Christian document — guarantees Congress will make NO LAW respecting an establishment of religion. Note here the word “respecting”. Also note the words “an establishment”. No law can be made at all in the USA which IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM RESPECTS ANY (THAT IS, ANY KIND OF) ESTABLISHMENT of religion. What is ESTABLISHMENT OF RELIGION? That is the uniting of a church or churches or any religious group with State machinery (as for example in the UK, where the State “Church” known as the Anglican cult, runs the State through its absolute dictator Head, known as the Queen — she merely “allows” Parliament to run her affairs for her, but actually, since there is no written Constitution in the UK, she and her upper-class Twit allies can do what they like). Now since NO LAW can be made or passed by Congress which EVEN RESPECTS, TOLERATES, ALLOWS, REGARDS any establishment of religion, then any so-called “church” authority, or mosque-regime or any other religious body which actively and knowingly participates in and attempts to interfere with or control the political machinery of the State IS ABSOLUTELY BANNED BY THE CONSTITUTION FROM HAVING ANY LEGAL COVER, PROTECTION OR AUTHORIZATION. That means ALL “Roman Catholic” “church” bodies are ABSOLUTELY BANNED LEGALLY-SPEAKING as they are representatives of a FOREIGN STATE (the Vatican, with its own ambassadors etc. etc.), and also ALL “WORLD COUNCIL OF CHURCHES” AFFILIATE BODIES OR “CHURCHES” ARE ABSOLUTELY BANNED BECAUSE THAT GROUP ADMITTEDLY INTERFERES WITH AND ATTEMPTS TO INFLUENCE THE STATE MACHINERY, and ALL MOSQUES ARE ABSOLUTELY BANNED for the same reason (AS THEY ATTEMPT TO INTRODUCE SHARIA LAW based on the Othmanic Muslim Quran). Like many other very vital elements of the Constitution of the USA, THIS ONE HAS BEEN TOTALLY BY-PASSED, but all true Bible-believing Christians should make sure as individual believers that it is COMPLIED WITH by the filthy-corrupt regime in Washington. Notice all INDIVIDUAL believers have GUARANTEED FREEDOM to exercise RELIGION (that is an absolute word — Christian religion, the LAW OF NATURE AND NATURE’S GOD, as stated in the Preamble to the Constitution), but CHURCH-BODIES, FELLOWSHIPS, GROUPS, RELIGIOUS AUTHORITIES, MUST STAY OUT OF STATE AND FEDERAL POLITICS COMPLETELY, BEING FORBIDDEN BY THE CONSTITUTION SO TO ACT, AS THAT IS ESTABLISHMENT OF RELIGION.

=========

PPS. Please note the HUGE difference here with regard to Jews and Israel. Israel has its OWN NATION-STATE given to it by God within its own God-given borders. Hallelujah! That makes me happy even to say it. Now, no Jew is trying to get us Gentiles (non-Jews) into Israel or make Israel rule over America. Jews and Israelis living in America simply have their own Bible-based faith. That’s fine with the American Constitution. (See other blog-posts re. the FREE EXERCISE OF RELIGION AND THE JEWISH FAITH.) Unlike our Jewish brethren, the so-called “Christian” cults mentioned above and some other religions like Othmanic Islam (the type that believes the standard corrupted Quran) — they’re actively trying to take over not only the government of America but all other nation-states of the world, too, because they are deluded to believe they represent the “Kingdom of God”. Away with these deceivers into the trash-bin of history!

Say YES to THANKSGIVING and NO to the Witchcraft Ceremony of “Christmas” and Old Nick Santa Claus

[THIS POST HAS BEEN REPUBLISHED HERE 3 OCT 2013, TO ADDRESS THE WIDESPREAD PUBLIC DELUSION ABOUT THE PAGAN CEREMONY OF "CHRISTMAS"]

Great! Thanksgiving’s coming up again. Get your turkey, folks, and your pumpkin pie and dig in to a real genuine Christian feast, a real genuine Pilgrim American feast. The founding fathers, the Pilgrims of Plymouth Rock, loved Jesus — that’s why they came to America, to escape persecution from the Anglican cult in England and its parent-cult the Vatican on the continent. They didn’t celebrate Witchcraft ceremonies like “Christmas”. Neither does any true born-again Spirit-filled Christian today. They celebrated Thanksgiving, in gratitude to the Lord Jesus Who saved them in their pilgrim colony and led them (with the help of their dear native American Indian neighbors) to bring in a good harvest. Thank God for that. Ever since America has been a refuge for Bible-believing, God-fearing, God-loving Christians and has been a beacon on a hill to the rest of the world. Thanksgiving is a true Christian celebration, thanking God for His continued loving welfare. The Devil didn’t let them off scot-free, of course. He introduced weeds into the wheat-field and conned the Pilgrims’ descendants by re-introducing the European cults’ Witchcraft ceremony the Winter Solstice “Christmas”. Through the love of money (the root of ALL evil) the Devil promoted this Witchcraft ceremony by deceiving little children with the myth of Santa Claus and his goblin helpers. Presents, presents, presents! Money, money, money! That’s what it’s about. It’s just the Devil in disguise. Santa Claus is the old supposed-to-be “saint” Nicholas of Myra. A thoroughly degenerate little Vaticanite he was, like the present so-called “bishop” of Rome, the international pedophile ring-leader known as the “Pope”. The Bible predicted that the cult of the leaders named after “Nicholas” would swallow up the world in their false religion, and so it has come about. See Revelation 2. “6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans [means: "cultists named after Nicholas"], which I [Jesus Christ] also hate“, and “15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate“. Notice Jesus says here He HATES the “Nicholas” cult, and that’s the Santa Claus cult. You can download the historical facts showing the Santa Claus cult was the God-hated Nicolaitan cult here (left-click to read online or right click and Save As to download). Get back to the true Christian and American Thanksgiving and repent of this Satanic “Christmas” nonsense. You can see more about the pagan ceremony of Christmas here.

==============

The detailed study of Alexander Tille, titled “Yule and Christmas”, London, 1899, p. 102 and following pages, gives you the facts about the Witchcraft cult of the so-called “Christmas Tree”: it was originally dedicated to the god Bel of Babylon (Babylon being Satan’s main cult-center), and was transferred into “Christian” (in name only) churches in Germany. The idol Bel is strongly condemned by God in the Bible: Isaiah 46:1: “Bel boweth down, Nebo stoopeth, their idols were upon the beasts”, Jeremiah 50:2: “Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard; publish, and conceal not: say, Babylon is taken, Bel is confounded, Merodach is broken in pieces; her idols are confounded, her images are broken in pieces.” Jeremiah 51:44: “And I will punish Bel in Babylon, and I will bring forth out of his mouth that which he hath swallowed up: and the nations shall not flow together any more unto him: yea, the wall of Babylon shall fall.”

The following quote is a bit technical so I’ll summarize it here: The Babylonian Satanic cult of Bel, including the use of magic branches and trees at the New Year, was borrowed by the Romans and practiced in ancient pagan Rome. When the Roman army conquered the ancient Germans, the Romans passed on this evil cult to the Germans. Later, when the Roman Empire turned “Christian” (in name only), the old pagan customs of Bel worship were given a “Christian” brush-up. So in Germany, for example, around the year AD 950, the pagan Roman Bel cult at New Year (January 1) was transferred by a Roman “Catholic” fanatic “saint” (so-called) to the nearby date of December 25. December 25 itself was an ancient pagan festival celebrating the birth of the Sun-god, but had been changed into the “Birthday of the Son of God” (Jesus) by the false Roman church. So now around AD 950 in Germany this so-called saint added a little spice to the poisonous mixture by taking the magic trees and branches of the Bel cult at New Year festival and splotting them onto December 25 “Birthday of the Son of God” (so-called). And so on and so forth — what a mess! The magic tree of the Bel cult popped up under the new name of the “Christmas Tree”. So the pagan witchcraft ceremony, from the Babylonian Bel cult, of looking for a tree in midwinter which had fruit or flowers on it, or was very green and fresh-looking, as an omen of fertility for the future year, had polluted the so-called churches of Europe and infested nominal Christian homes, as it still does today.

I have added a few explanations and comments in square brackets in the following quotation from Tille:

“Alsso [a writer about AD 1400] even tells us more. At the beginning of every month the Bohemians carried about the image of their god Bel, singing a Czechic song. They rejoiced in the god thus visiting their houses, hoping faithfully that, in consequence, the whole month long he would send them good luck, and lead all their fortune and life. Therefore people brought gifts to the image of Bel, as it were a tribute, regarding themselves as his true worshippers in order that he might bring them luck. But St. Adalbert [AD 956-997, he is called a "saint" here but he was obviously no saint], because it was too circumstantial to do so at the beginning of every month, and in order that the Christians might not also celebrate the beginning of the months [New Year] according to heathen custom, changed this celebration of the beginnings of months [the pagan New Year] into a celebration of Christ’s Nativity and of the week following it, thinking that it would be better to exercise that habit in the time in which Christ was born [he imagined this to be December 25], than at the beginning of months [New Year January 1], at which honour had once been bestowed upon Bel. He also is said to have altered the name and the sense of that celebration, making of ‘kalendisare’ [meaning "to practice a cult at the New Year"] ‘colendisare’ [meaning "to practice a reverend ceremony"] (from colere, to revere), because through that usage Christ was revered at his birthday, and not in the Calends [the Calends is the New Year Jan. 1]. If this report does not imply that medieval Christmas in South Germany took the place of an older Calends celebration according to Roman usage, I do not know what it implies. The confusion in which the minds of both authors are is best shown by the fact that they not only regard the Calends [that is, New Year] rites as an imitation and distortion of Christmas rites caused by the devil, but at the same time inform us that up to St. [not a Saint!] Adalbert’s time the Calends [New Year] alone prevailed, and that it was this Saint [so-called] who transferred to Christmas the Calendisationes or Calends [New Year] processions,—two statements which are mutually exclusive.

[Notice the contrast with earlier more Bible-based customs shown in the following statements:] When the Chapters of Bishop Martin of Bracae, A.D. 575, forbade the faithful to observe dangerous Calends [New Year] customs, to keep the heathen times of leisure, and to adorn their houses round about with laurel and green trees, he rendered a very great service indeed to folklore, for this seems to be the only prohibition of that Calends [New Year] custom which has come down to us, and it is not until eight hundred years later that we can show houses to have been adorned with green and trees at New Year and Christmas. It is told, however, of the [ancient Italian] Sabinian king Tatius, to whom by the legend a date is given about the middle of the eighth century B.C, that in winter he received branches of a happy or fortunate tree from the grove of Streniae as favourable omens with respect to the new year. It is true that story is told by a Roman writer of about 400 A.D., Q. Aurelius Symmachus, and it cannot therefore be regarded as affording any evidence on a state of things twelve hundred years before that time. But the one thing certain from it is that, in the time of the Roman empire, there existed the habit of presenting to people, on the Calends of January [New Year, Jan. 1], branches of trees for the sake of good luck in the new year. It is again solely from this custom that we learn the meaning of the adornment of houses with laurel and green trees in the sixth century. These things were put up as good omens for the luck of the year. Even later evidence of this custom is very scarce. That in Italy it lived on we know at the end of the fifteenth century, through Polydore Vergil, who says: “Trimmyng of the Temples with hangynges, floures, boughes, and garlandes, was taken of the Heathen people, whiche decked their Idoles and houses with suche arraye.” In Germany the two fifteenth century witnesses for that usage come both from the Rhine country, from Strassburg, and both mention that at New Year’s day the houses were adorned with green fir branches.

In Strassburg it is also that, a hundred years later, the first Christmas tree appears, a usage which seems to have sprung out of the union of the habit of adorning houses with green branches and trees according to Roman Calends [New Year] custom, and of a Christian tenth century legend, according to which, in the night when the Saviour was born, all trees bloom and bring forth fruits in the forest. This legend can be proved to have been very popular in the Germany of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.

In England the same custom must have been popular, at least in the fifteenth century, even in the form of trees or artificial trees. “Against the Feast of Christmas, euery mans house, as also their parish Churches, were decked with Holm, Iuy, Bayes, and whatsoeuer the season of the yeere aforded to be greene. The Conduits and Standards in the streetes were, likewise, garnished. Amongst the which, I read, that in the yeere 1444, ‘by tempest of thunder and lightning, on the first of February at night, Pauls steeple was fiered, but with great labour quenched, and toward the morning of Candlemas day, at the Leaden Hall in Cornhill, a Standard of tree being set up in the midst of the pauement, fast in the ground, nayled full of Holme and Iuy, for disport of Christmas to the people, was torne up and cast downe by the malignant Spirit (as was thought), and the stones of the pauement all about were cast in the streets, and into divers houses, so that the people were sore aghast at the great Tempests.’”

Gay, in his Trivia, sings:

“When Rosemary and Bays, the poet’s crown,
Are bawl’d in frequent cries through all the town;
Then judge the festival of Christmas near,
Christmas, the joyous period of the year!
Now with bright Holly all the temples strow
With Laurel green, and sacred Mistletoe.”

And from that time on there is a complete continuity of tradition as regards the adornment of houses and churches by holly and ivy, evergreen and mistletoe, box and bay. There are the well-known fifteenth century carols about the contest between Holly and Ivy:

“Holly and Ivy, Box and Bay,
Put in the Church on Christmas day.”

PS. A little background on our Fairy-Fir-Tree “Saint” Adalbert, who takes the lion’s share of the blame for the filthy so-called “Christmas” cult as practiced today. He is the Roman “Catholic” patron-saint of Poland, and got that dubious distinction on account of the following “missionary” enterprises. After failing to “convert” the (already-converted) Old Slavic Christians further South, Adalbert decided it would be easier to win simple pagans to Rome’s Christianized military machine. He was the “Pope’s” chief representative on the Northern Germanic front, and a close relative of the “Holy Roman” Emperor, who headed the “Pope’s” thug-regime in Germany. As has widely been proclaimed, the “Holy Roman Empire” was neither “Holy”, nor “Roman” nor an “Empire”. It was a cultic fraternity of Barbarian chiefs bent on thrusting the “Pope’s” Vatican regime on as many poor deluded peasants as possible, if necessary by massacre and mayhem. So our Fairy-Fir-Tree “Saint” Adalbert towards the end of the tenth century AD, despaired of tricking the canny Slavic Christians (with their Received Text Old Slavonic Bibles), and headed off to “convert” what he imagined to be the more easily-deluded pagan peasants of Prussia. Venturing into their land, he was quickly pierced through by the alert pagan peasants — seven spears went through his torso, pinning him to the ground in the posture of the Roman crucifix. Quite appropriate really. He was followed over 200 years by another three Roman “missionary” attempts, and each time the Prussian peasants executed or banished the Roman spies (sorry, “missionaries”). Finally the “Pope” had enough of it and in the 13th century resorted to his normal tactics. He sent in the unemployed Crusaders known as the “Teutonic Knights” and the Order of the “Brethren of the Sword” (both of them sort-of Roman jihadi units), and massacred the pagan Prussians in a scorched-earth campaign across Prussia. He then imported settlers from Germany to occupy the devastated villages and hamlets under the eyes of the Roman barons in their highly fortified castles constructed for the purpose on the mountain-tops. Obviously, after that, Prussia (Poland) was “Catholic”. What a wonderful, miraculous conversion!!! That’s how it remained till the Reformation when, after recovering somewhat from the devastation, the poor Prussians threw off Roman “Catholicism” and brought forth a glorious Reformed church. The Pope didn’t let it last long and crushed this new movement in Prussia ruthlessly in the Counter Reformation. After that second round of massacring and mayhem, blessed by the “Pope”, Prussia (Poland) remained in the backwater of fanatical Romanism right to the present day.
