Really? Christmas?

  1. 2 years ago today, the Lord brought me out of alot of bondage! I've written it all in my testimony here. Yoga "workouts" & My Experience: A Testimony

    As time went on, the Holy Spirit began to speak more audibly to me. During Christmas of 2018, I was watching tv and noticed an internal dialogue begin to take place.

    Holy Spirit: Look, they have Christmas trees.
    Me: Yeah, I have a Christmas tree, too!
    Holy Spirit: Look, they are playing Christmas music and movies.
    Me: Hey, I have all those things, too!
    Holy Spirit: WHY DO YOU LOOK LIKE THE WORLD????
    Me: Wait, WHAT?!! Wow, that is so true!

    Bam! Conviction. Time to research things out and see what is going on and why is God nudging me to check these things out? Why do I look like the world? Why am I going along with what the world is doing when Jesus himself SPECIFICALLY said to NOT do that?

    2 Corinthians 6:17- Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you
    2 Chronicles 33:2- But did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, like unto the abominations of the heathen, whom the LORD had cast out before the children of Israel.

    The book of Psalm is literally crawling with heathen information and exactly what a Christian should not do.

    Jeremiah 10:2- 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.
    Hosea 4:6- My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
    Luke 16:13- No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

    There are a ton more verses I could use, but reading the book of Deuteronomy during this time of idolatry, really made my eyes open up to the heavy deception around us, especially this time of year!

    There are also multiple different websites with lots of information about how Christmas is pagan. Has pagan roots and was adopted by fake Christians.
    So am I celebrating "Christmas" this time of year? No. Why? Because I'm not a pagan or a heathen. I have no business offending God and as true Christians, we really need to get serious, whether the world is ending or not, it's just high time to get on the right and NARROW path. I never realized that after cleaning up the Christmas stuff from 2018, I would never be doing that again. We've destroyed all things idolatry. It has seriously brought an immense amount of peace to this household. There were way too many supernatural, demonic things going on within this house that time of year as well. I would notice it and my kids, out of the blue would note certain dark things happening around them, too. Last year we had nothing put out and it was such a peaceful time! No disturbances! I couldn't remember feeling such PEACE when all I'd ever felt before was stress, nightmares, constantly trying to get "things right" for everyone. Nope. No more. None of that. Jesus never said to celebrate His birthday. He said to remember His death. He just wants you and all of you. Don't compromise with the world. It's just not worth. Find peace. Ditch Christmas. See what happens!
    Just because the world is doing it, does not make it right in the eyes of the Lord.

    Anyway, that is my testimony, as I felt prompted by the Holy Spirit to share. I didn't have anyone tell me these things. I listened to the Holy Spirit out of an act of obedience shortly after my initial repentance. See, around me, everyone does what the world is doing. I went along with it for decades until God opened up my eyes. The scales are off and I can surely see and hear how it's all wrong. We've all been deceived and led astray and I used to love the Christmas holiday just as much as the next person. But it's never too late! I strongly recommend asking God to reveal TRUTH to you. You don't have to believe a word I've written, but ask God for confirmation or if I'm really just gone off my rocker. I won't be offended! It's best to read God's word with His Spirit to guide you. That is how you'll get answers. Put God first.

    Amen,

    I went through the same thing 30 years ago. What a blessing it has been for us. Yes, it made some friends and family members uncomfortable when we stopped observing this most popular religious High Day. But we gained so much more once we were free from this religious tradition of the world we were born into.

    Good for you.
