Put Christ back in Christmas, Holy back in Holiday, Give Santa Claus and commercialism the boot, Make Christmas the celebration of Christ’s birth

“What’s to-day, my fine fellow?” said Scrooge.
“To-day!” replied the boy. “Why, Christmas Day.”
“It’s Christmas Day!” said Scrooge to himself. “I haven’t missed it.”

“He became as good a friend, as good a master, and as good a man, as the good old city knew.”

“God bless us every one!”…Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol”

“Thank God for the life of Charles Dickens.”…Citizen Wells

I think about this often, especially during Christmas Season.

I have been planning this article for some time, what I would say, saving fitting articles.

And there it was a few minutes ago, running errands getting back in my car, on the rear of the car in front of me.

Santa was very much a part of Christmas and the gluttony of “I want I want” of my childhood.

As I got older the empty feeling after it was over began to make an impression on me. The empty feeling of thinking more of myself instead of others and the letdown that material goods always eventually provide.

Thank God it did.

Even though I was raised in the church and actively took part in the services, the pull of material possessions was too great.

Christmas is about celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, being with family, giving not receiving and reflecting on life.

Sadly, the focus on non Christian materialism, Santa etc., has steadily increased since then as well as the me me me mentality that permeates our society.

Many folks these days substitute holidays to avoid a reference to Christ but even that word originated as Holy Days.

So let’s put the Christ back in Christmas and Holy back in holidays.

Greet people with Merry or Blessed Christmas even if they don’t understand or feel uncomfortable.

Help them to understand.

God bless and Merry Christmas.

    To those who say they believe in Christ, and to those searching for Him.

    I know you mean well, but Christ, Lord Jesus is NOT a baby, the “Christmas holiday” is quite pagan, as are all holidays, as are all national holidays as are all birthdays etc., etc.

    We are supposed to love and assist everyone who needs it 24/07. We are supposed to follow Christ and His Holy Ways 24/07!

    The people who run and destroy this world and it’s people, for now, already know this. And they just love destroying and creating as much misery as they can just as much as they love lying about what they have done, are doing and will do!

    They know, as does Satan as their spiritual father, that most Christians have not a clue as to what truly following Christ is. And Satan does not want you to find out the beautifully pure, holy and simple Truth that is Christ. Satan and his earthly minions have done such an excellent job keeping such Christians blind as bats.

    By listening to your blind pastor, priest etc., instead of LISTENING to Christ, you remain so, so carnal, so very much OF THIS WORLD. By continuing to live with one foot in the old covenant world and one foot in HIS New Covenant with us, they will continue on in blindness.

    If they were truly obedient, they would already know this because they would have been listening to Christ, Lord Jesus and only to Him. John 5:39-40

    The following is Reality!

    Revelation 21:5 Behold, I Will Make [[ all ]] things New.

    SATURDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2015

    BETWEEN 5:30-6AM AFTER GETTING DRINK OF WATER AND WHILE AWAKE I HAD A VISION. In this vision which took place at night, the “nativity scene” was enveloped in a raging and ferocious fire. The words “IT IS DONE” came clearly to my mind. The meaning is this: Christ never Told us nor wants us to “celebrate” this pagan event once a year. He Forbids us as was made clear to me. He Wants us to live our lives with HIM ONLY Shepherding us. (No holidays, birthdays, national events etc, etc should be celebrated.)

    GOD IS TELLING US IT IS NOT A HOLY THING FOR US TO WORSHIP THIS/THESE YEAR AFTER YEAR!

    Revelation 11.18 “The nations were angry, and Your Wrath has Come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged. And that You should reward Your servants and the prophets and the saints, (both the same). And those who fear Your Name, small and great,

    AND SHOULD DESTROY THOSE WHO DESTROY THE EARTH”.

    Revelation 22.15 But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters,

    AND WHO EVER LOVES AND PRACTICES A LIE.

    TRUE BIBLICAL VISION = A MENTAL SIGHT = A CLEAR AND VIVID STILL OR MOVING PICTURE SEEN IN THE MIND SENT BY CHRIST

    Matthew 17:5 While he was still speaking, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and behold, a Voice out of the cloud said, “This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased; HEAR HIM!”

    John 5:39-40 “You search the Scriptures because you think they give you Eternal Life. But the Scriptures Point to Me!

    Yet you refuse to come to Me to receive this Life.

      This is all nonsense. I guess you believe in the christian god.

      Why not the islamic god. Why not the hindu gods??

      Everyone who believes these gods are equally convinced that their particular god is the right one,and the rest are the ‘wrong’ god.

      Do you people not see how facile this is??

      There is no evidence for any of them, and most of you ‘worship’ the god your parents and country believe in.

      This is stupidity of the highest order, and as a species,we need to throw this garbage off.
