You probably don’t know it yet, but you have been duped into celebrating a pagan, Witchcraft ceremony, which binds you by spells into bondage to demons. That is, if you celebrate the Winter Solstice pagan ritual known as “Christmas”. Note this ceremony blasphemously uses (or abuses) the Blessed Name of Jesus Christ to masquerade as a “Christian” feast. This is typical of wicca cultism. They have a “Black Sabbath” and a “Black Mass” etc. etc., aping Christian practices. “Christmas” is one of these. Note its use of pagan rites like “greenery” (representing the spirits of the wood) and BLOOD-red (blood is particularly appreciated by wiccans) objects of various sorts. So next time you amble into your local mall you will be inundated with a flood of wiccan symbolism, red, green and flying sprites (Santas) and animals (wiccans just LOVE animals) swooping through the rafters.
Cutting down a tree and decking it with baubles is a pagan ceremony absolutely condemned by God in the Bible:
Jeremiah Chapter 10: “1 Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:
2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven [like the Winter Solstice of the sun on December 25]; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
3 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.
4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
5 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.
6 Forasmuch as there is none like unto thee, O LORD; thou art great, and thy name is great in might.”
The pity is it is pretty well known where this mumbo-jumbo comes from: it is the pagan feast of the Winter Solstice — sun-worship. In ancient Rome the sun-god was “born” on December 25, so when the pagan Roman Empire was “Christianized” it just changed the feast from the Birth of the sun-god to the Birth of the Son of God. This ignored the fact that the true Church of the first three centuries knew Jesus was actually born in late March or early April (depending on which local calendar they used). Now many still argue, as the Christianized Romans argued then, that “there’s no harm celebrating the festival, so long as you keep Jesus as the Reason for the Season” etc. etc. and similar verbal dribble. Well there IS A VERY GOOD REASON NOT TO CELEBRATE IT AT ALL, and that is because, as all witches know, to take part in a pagan ritual, with pagan ritual objects, subjects a person to evil spirits which are transmitted on and through those rituals. The only way to escape this demonic influence is to be thoroughly filled and sealed by the Holy Spirit of Jesus. That STOPS the demons from affecting you. But if you’re filled with the discerning Spirit of Jesus YOU WILL HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH PAGAN DEMONIC SYMBOLS AND CEREMONIES, BECAUSE YOU DISCERN THOSE EVIL SPIRITS.
You might wonder why I put up on the headline “Artemon is the Reason for the Season” in obvious mockery of the perverted idea that “Jesus is the Reason for the Season”. That is because a nutcase heretic called ARTEMON WAS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON. He invented it. If you want to read the horrible and historical details you can download from the “Bible Resources” tab at the top of this page a PDF online booklet called “The Great Bible Text Fraud” which tells you how exactly Artemon did this. (The booklet also gives a lot of details about how the Bible was corrupted by heretics.) To put it simply — since the booklet is rather technical — there was a particularly vile little guru called Simon Magus in the days of the Apostles who was exposed as an imposter by Peter (see Acts chapter 8 in the New Testament for the facts). He taught the lying doctrine that Jesus was just an ordinary man, not God in human flesh, and that being an ordinary man he could not originally do miracles. However, so Simon Magus taught, one day, at Jesus’ baptism, the Spirit of Simon Magus, which was also the Spirit of the Sun-god, also called “the Christ”, came down into the ordinary man Jesus and turned him into a miracle-working super-man. This date, the date of Jesus’ baptism was believed to be the “Birth of the Sun-god” into the world, the time when he first appeared amongst men. In the pagan Roman East the date of the Birth of the Sun-god was 6th January. So Simon Magus’ followers began to believe that 6th January was the date of the “Birth of the Christ”, that is, of the Sun-god, as well as the date of the baptism of Jesus. Many in the East, like backslidden “Orthodox” Christians, still believe this today. Then later, so Simon Magus taught, just before Jesus was crucified, the Spirit of Simon Magus left him and went back to heaven, so allowing Jesus to die, as every normal man does. Well this very stupid doctrine was taught by Simon Magus first in Palestine and later in Rome, where it was picked up by a disciple of Simon Magus called Artemon. He was accepted as a true teacher by a group of Roman so-called Christians who had fallen into paganism, and who later were known as the Roman “Catholic” Cult. Now in Rome the Birthday of the Sun-god was December 25th, not the 6th of January (as it was in the East). So Artemon had to do some quick juggling with the dates. His solution was to make December 25th the date of the birth of the “mere man” Jesus (in the manger with the shepherds, animals etc.) and to keep the 6th January as the Birth of the Spirit of the Sun-god or of “the Christ” into the world. Now both sets of wiccans were happy: the easterners had their birthday of “Christ the sun-god” on January 6th and the western Romans had theirs on December 25th. The 12 days between December 25th and January 6th became the party-going “Twelve Days of Christ-mass”. Well that’s what you’re celebrating, folks — a total mess of Witchcraft garbage. ARTEM-ON IS TRULY THE REAS-ON FOR THE SEAS-ON.
Let me repeat what has been said in another post:
Satanism works by spells (magic words and formulas) and by ceremonies (magic acts). If a person participates in these he binds himself by evil forces. That means: just to take part in a Satanic ceremony is to bind your soul in bondage to demons.
A Holy-Ghost filled Christian, of course, would never take part in such a thing, or use magic words to achieve a stated purpose. So, Satan being aware of these facts he gets Christians to take part in his Satanic rituals by deception. One trick is to invite Christians to a festival or party which is actually a Satanic ritual-feast. That’s what the Apostle Paul said the Israelites did in their Desert Wanderings — they committed idolatry just by sitting down to the feast of Baal-Peor (a Satanic idol), and by getting up after the meal and playing “games” at the party.
Paul says this about it: 1 Corinthians 10 7 “Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.” Notice Paul calls these backslidden Israelites “idolaters” because they “sat down to eat” and “rose up to play”. Once the Israelites got into the “party-spirit” they started to get drunk and commit fornication with the sexy-dressed girls of the worshipers of Baal-Peor. Notice it was not necessary for them actually to worship the idol physically — they just “went to the party”. Well, yes. That’s exactly what Satan does now using the so-called “Christian” festivals which were created by the pagan Vatican cult known as the “Roman Catholic Church”. He gets Christians to come to the party at his Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, and Halloween festivals, which are all pagan Roman Satanic feasts dressed up with “Christian” names and titles. So in the Name of the Lord Jesus, keep away from them!
