*Col 2:8 "Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ".
Christmas trees have been cut and then decorated for thousands of years.
This custom is vain (worthless) it does no one any good.
*Mark 7:9 "And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition".
What is the commandment of God that has been rejected?
*Exodus 20:3-5 "Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God",
What is serve them? To serve any thing is to give your time and/or money Matt 6:21 for it.
God has heard for many years throughout this world his children singing about a Santa Clause that is coming to town. The song says "he sees you when you’re sleeping, he knows when your awake, he knows if you've been bad or good so be good for goodness sake".
God has seen for many years parents putting their children on the lap of a stranger in a red suit to take their picture while instructing them to tell Santa what they want for Christmas.
Only God your heavenly Father of love everlasting sees you when you're sleeping.
Only God your Father of love knows when you're awake.
Only God your Father of love knows when you've been bad or good.
How would you feel if you were God, the great creator of all and the Father of all and many of your children were singing your qualities giving honor to someone in a red suit?
Only God is who you should be good for because your works are being written in the books of life for your eternal placement (Rev 20:12) in his coming New Earth Rev 21.
Many are about to tell their children "Santa is going to come down the chimney and bring gifts for you". Under the Christmas tree will be gifts that will say "From Santa". What a lie.
Only God our Father gives good gifts (James 1:17).
Only God gives us the ability to give gifts (Deut 8:18).
And then we tell our children not to tell lies? What hypocrites.
Pretending to worship God through your traditions is idolatry! God hates Christmas!
The birth of Christ was not on December 25th and can be proven by any in-depth study of its origins
yet many that know that fact celebrate Christmas anyway.
They say it is to honor Christ their savior’s birth. That day honor's a false messiah's birthday! God didn't give us the true messiah's birthday. The true messiah is sitting at the right hand of God in all power and glory. He is not a babe in a manger.
Christ mas is of Babylon! Come out of her my people that you be not partaker of her sins Rev 18:4 and that you receive not of her plagues.
Our God is real! Our God loves holidays only he calls his HolyDays (Lev 23). He is our Holy Father, his spirit lives in his HolyDays. In God's coming kingdom all will keep God's HolyDays.
God's Holydays are a gift. They teach the eternal plan of God.
Satan has deceived the whole world Rev 12:9 to worship another god Matt 4:8-10.
One that worships on Sunday.
One that loves this world 1 John 2:15 and all it’s holidays.
One that taught God's children to fear 1 John 4:18 the disobedience of men's word John 12:43.
Through lies John 8:44 the god of hate, murder and revenge is this world's god.
Doing the customs of the people is vain; it does not bring you close to God your real Father (Col 2:8).
The Bible is the book of the knowledge of good and evil. It must be rightly divided 2 Tim 2:15 to discern Heb 5:13-14 its doctrine Isa 28:9-10 God's way. You must overcome your understanding.
The lies of this world separate you from the true word of God (love), (John 4:23).
Do not judge or condemn anyone who keeps Christmas or Easter or any other of this world’s holidays. Be merciful, they might not want to live inside those pearly gates. Much will be required for those chosen to live inside God’s government city. It is not for everyone. They may want to live outside the walls of the New City. Do not harm Rom 13:10 anyone’s feelings, love everyone. God does. Fathers and Mothers turn your hearts to all the children of God. God has a place for all in his world. God draws his children to him in his time John 6:44. He directs us all (Pro 3:6), (Pro 16:9). The gift of truth from God our Father is the greatest gift; give this to your children. Teach by example not by persecution Joshua 24:15.
Every child of God is saved by grace. no matter what their sins.
*Eph 2:5,8-9 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast".
No one first must profess Christ in this life to be given eternal life in their next life. All will be given eternal life at their resurrection from the dead (Matt 22:29-30) and then will be their judgment and eternal placement in the coming kingdom of God (Ezek 37:26). Many who have professed Christ have not really known him or obeyed his word Luke 6:46.
No one immediately goes to heaven or hell when they die, it is a lie. Your body goes to the grave. The spirit that God gave returns to God to await your resurrection (Eccl 12:7). The mysteries of God are proven by the word of God of this and more on this website. All will be saved each in their own order, God’s order. God has all power over his creation Rev 20:3. No one can come to know God until he draws them (John 6:44). He will draw all to him (Rom 14:11).
*Revelation 20:12 "And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works".
If you want to live inside the walls of God’s New Jerusalem in his world you must become perfect in love (Luke 12:48) by overcoming your carnal mind (Rev 3:5) of hate Rom 8:7. Perfect in love loves God with all your heart, soul, and mind. Perfect love is doing his will and not your own. Keeping the laws and Holydays of God are not negotiable because you can only begin to love God with all your heart, soul and mind when you live by every word of God (love) as Christ did so can you (Matt 4:4). These are your works of love that will place you inside the walls of his city forever. Much is required to whom much is given. You must overcome your carnal mind by loving God more than yourself and with his love loving your neighbor as yourself. Anyone not keeping the laws and Holydays of God will be saved by grace and will be placed outside the walls of the kingdom Rev 22:14-15. If God is drawing you to him now, your placement will be determined by your works of perfect love (1 Cor 13:2-3). If God is not drawing you to him now, your placement will be determined by how you treat others Matt. 25:40.
*Matthew 16:27 "For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works".
Only those who will be allowed to enter into the coming city of God in his world Rev 21:11-27 will live now in truth John 4:23, Matt 4:4.
*Rev 21:27 "And there shall in no wise enter into it anything that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh (abomination), or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life".
The word (abomination) is Strong’s number 946, it means idolatry. DO NOT LIE!
The customs and traditions of men are idolatry John 8:44, Luke 16:15. They are worthless. Your time and money is spent for nothing. You will have no eternal reward in God's Holy city. God hates lies.
Satan has deceived the whole world to keep God's children from truly knowing and honoring our Father of Love. God created (Isa 45:7) us to hate him Rom 8:7 to learn the knowledge of good and evil Gen 3:22 to humble us. When our minds become open to the truth we will never want lies again and neither will we lie to others. Now we can live by the true word of God without fear, seeking first the kingdom of God and his righteousness (Matt 6:21).
This is HIS righteousness.
*Rom 4:5 "But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness".
Is the real God in your heart?
Are you praying to a heavenly Father of love and mercy who has all power to save all his children? Or are you praying to a heavenly god of hate, revenge and murder.
Satan is not love. Satan has no mercy. Satan has no eternal power over any of God’s children.
The god of deception is about to be cast from heaven to this earth (Rev 12:13) by the will of God.
Because the true Gospel is now delivered on this website Matt 24:14. Now is come Salvation.
*Rev 12:10 "And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night".
The seeds are planted Rev 12:17. The harvest will come.
Satan the murderer isn't even living among us yet and God's children are murdering others.
The knowledge of good and evil Gen 3:22 is a requirement before our eternal resurrection.
This world suffers from the mental illness of our carnal minds of hate Rom 8:7.
Only God our creator can cure our condition.
ASK! Matt. 7:11, Luke 11:13.
God gave us all mortal life; he will give us all immortal life, that's what being born again is.
He will place us according to our works of loving others as ourselves either with his love or ours no matter how good or evil in his coming world Rev 21:10.
Depending on what you do with what you know he has a place for you.
*Luke 12:47-48 "And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more".
God is your Father. He is the Father of your children, his children.
He sent his son to die for all 1 John 2:2. His son suffered for hours hanging on a cross so that all of us can know God our Father forever (John 3:16).
*John 17:3 "And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent".
Eternal life is to know your Almightly Father that is teaching us his everlasting love. Without the knowledge of evil you can't know the depth of his love Rom 11:33, Eph 3:18.
All will know him Heb 8:11-12 from the least to the greatest. Micah 7:19
God is calling many to choose the few who will truly love him by living by his every word.
God will not choose those who love men's teachings over his.
*John 12:43 "For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God".
Oh how we have all been deceived, holding to men’s teachings to worship God our own way over God’s way.
*Isa 28:14-18 Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem. Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it".
God says not to love the world (1 John 2:15); you cannot do good if you do (Rom 3:12). Doing good is doing things God's way. Only God is good. Almost everything of this world that you think you are doing to please the real God is worthless. Prove all things. When you think; it is of your carnal mind (2 Cor 11:15). You must not think you must live by every word of God (love).
*Ps 14:2- 4 "The Lord looketh down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD".
*3 John 1:11 "Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God".
*Luke 6:46 "And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
Do you want to live for eternity inside the walls of the coming New Jerusalem for eternity? You must want it with your whole heart soul and Gods mind (Phil 2:5). Seeking his will as for hid treasure (Matt 13:44).
*John 1:17 "For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ".
True grace and truth is now going to the world by the promise of God to Eve (Gen 3:15). This is the heel of time, the time of the restitution of all things before the return of Christ to prepare a people for
the coming millennium.
*Matthew 10:26 "Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known".
*Acts 3:21-23 "Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people".
Those who claim to be a Christian that refuse to hear "The Good Tale" will not be allowed through those pearly gates. They will not be counted among the people that will go in because they refuse the true word John1:1 now delivered Rev 12:5.
The word Gospel means "Good Tale".
This is the Gospel that shall be preached in all the world as a witness and then the end will come.
The word him in Acts 3:22 is Strong’s #846 its definition should read "she".
God has raised me up of my brethren. I am the woman of Revelation 12.
This is the deliverance of the true word (John 1:1), (Rev 12:5) by the will of God.
True grace and truth is given to the world to prepare a people of all nations, tongues (Rev 7:9) and kindred’s. There is no respect of persons with God.
*John 4:24 "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth".
Open your mind to the almighty POWER of God! Live the true word of God. There is no other way.
