December 25th: Birth of the Antichrist

By Maria Merola

Excerpt from Maria’s Book “Another Jesus & Another Gospel” written in 2002

© Copyright Double Portion Inheritance, September 2002

1st Yahuwchanon (John) 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as you have heard that antimessiah (antichrist) shall come, even now are there many antimessiahs (antichrists); whereby we know that it is the last time. 
Has it ever occurred to you that the true Messiah Yahuwshuwa came to earth to dwell with men after many of his impostors had already come and gone? He himself declared that they were thieves and robbers:

Yahuwchanon (John) 10:8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.

Pictured above is the same god that was worshiped by Nimrod in the days of the “Tower of Babel” known as “Moloch” and today in Freemasonry, he is called “Baphomet.”  But his identity is the same. He is actually Satan the “horned god” who is half human with the head of a goat. His astrological sign is “Capricorn” the goat beginning on the Zodiac Cycle from December 22nd through January 21st. Back in 1981, before I was “born-again,” I had dabbled in the Zodiac and I found a book at the bookstore entitled “Jesus Was a Capricorn.” I can remember thinking to myself “well of course, he is a Capricorn---he was born on December 25th!”

Even Kris Kristofferson had written a song entitled “Jesus Was a Capricorn” back in 1972 which became very popular. You see Satan wants us to believe that Yahuwshuwa (Jesus) was born on December 25th because he wants us to believe that “Jesus was a reincarnation of Lucifer.” In other words, Satan wants to be the  Messiah so that he can be worshiped!

Why Does Satan Like December 25th for the Birth of Messiah?

Ever since the Tower of Babel, beginning with Nimrod and his supposed “reincarnated” son Tammuz (Ezekiel 8:14), there have been many pagan false Messiahs. Each of these characters is a fallen angel who took on the identity of “ascended masters” who were supposedly reincarnations of the “Universal Christ” for all religions. In essence, this is “Gnosticism”---the false doctrine which teaches that “Yahuwshuwa the Messiah of Yisra’el did not come in the flesh.”


This doctrine teaches instead that our Messiah was merely a reincarnation of all the other pagan gods who came before him on December 25th. This is how Satan has been preparing the entire world to accept the Antichrist. He has been doing this since the beginning of the creation by gradually changing the truth into a lie so that even the “elect” could be deceived. 

Why do the pagans want to associate the real Messiah Yahuwshuwa  with the date of December 25th?  Well the answer is quite simple. December 22nd begins the Zodiac cycle of “Capricorn the Goat of Mendez” which is also Satan or Baphomet, the “horned god” who is worshiped by Satanists and High Degree Masons. The pagans want us to believe that Yahuwshuwa Messiah was a reincarnation of Lucifer on December 25th the month of “Capricorn the Goat”! Capricorn is Capricornus a Latin compound of “goat-head & Capra.” Capra means head in Latin while “cornus” means horn. The original Greek Aegocerus means “goat-horned.” It might come as a surprise to you, but the title “Christ” pre-dates the earthly ministry of the Messiah of Yisra’el named Yahuwshuwa . The title “Christos” is a Greek title that has been assigned to many mythological deities in Greek culture, long before the true Messiah Yahuwshuwa came in the flesh to live and dwell among men. As a matter of fact, the title “Christos” which means “anointed” in Greek actually adds up to 666 in the Greek alpha-numeric system.

It is for this reason, that I no longer use the title “Christ” when referring to the true Messiah of Yisra’el. 

The title “Christianos” (Christian) is used in the Greek Textus Receptus (Acts 11:26, Acts 26:28, 1st Peter 4:16) but this was actually a nick-name used by the Greeks who began to follow the Jewish Messiah named YaHuW’shuwa , but that title (Christian) was not used by the Hebrew Apostles. They instead called themselves “Natzarim” (branches) of the true vine (John 15:5).

If the title “Christ” was assigned to all of the imposters who came before the true Messiah, then what does the term “Antichrist” mean? In the Strong’s Greek Concordance, we see this word as follows:

#473. anti an-tee’ a primary particle; opposite, i.e. instead or because of (rarely in addition to):--for, in the room of. Often used in composition to denote contrast, requital, substitution, correspondence, etc.

The Vicar of Christ (Vicarius Christi)

“Vicar of Christ “. . .A title used almost exclusively of the Bishop of Rome as successor of Peter and, therefore, the one in the Church who particularly takes the place of Christ; but used also of bishops in general and even of priests.

The Words Vicarious and Vicar

Now look up the word vicarious in almost any common dictionary. Here is what you would find in the Webster Handy College Dictionary“substituting for or, feeling in place of another.”

Also in the Webster’s II New Riverside Desk Dictionary for the definition of Vicar:

1.   A parish priest in the Church of England.
2.   A cleric in the Episcopal Church in charge of a chapel.
3.   One who serves as a *substitute* for another.

A Vicar General is defined in the 1994 Catholic Almanac on page 330 as “a priest or bishop appointed by the bishop of a diocese to serve as his deputy, with ordinary executive power, in the administration of the diocese.”

So a vicar serves in the place of (substituting for) the bishop, and assumes his power of office for certain duties.

The Papal title of VICAR OF CHRIST which in Latin is VICARIUS CHRISTI, means a SUBSTITUTE FOR CHRIST, which is synonymous with Antichrist, i.e., assuming the power of the Almighty on earth! This blasphemous claim is made repeatedly by various Popes and is the very foundation of Roman Catholicism and its Papacy.

Clearly then, Vicar of Christ (Vicarious Christi) and Antichrist have exactly the same meaning!

The Pope substitutes himself in place of the Almighty Creator on earth, and that is exactly the meaning of Antichrist!

Pictured above is a photograph of the Pope’s triple crown taken from the Vatican Museum with the inscription of Vicarious Filii Dei” which literally it means “Substitute for the son of God” or “Anti-Christ.”
Now let’s take a look at the alpha-numeric formula in the chart below on the left which gives us the number for this title of every pope.
As you can see here in this illustration from a German Christmas Card, Santa Claus is really the Pope and his alter-ego is the evil devil named “Krampus” which literally means “claw” in German.  In the occult, “anagrams” are used to invoke magic power by rearranging the letters in Satan’s name as follows: Satan, Natas, Tanas, Sanat, Atans, & Santa!

Santa Claus is Satan Claws!

See my other article entitled “Santa Claus or Satan Claws?” The fallen angel Satan (Lucifer) or “the Serpent” in the Garden of Eden knew the prophecies about the promised Messiah beginning with the one spoken to Eve:

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 3:15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; it shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.

These Messianic prophecies in the TaNaKh (Old Testament Scriptures) gave Satan enough insight whereby he might attempt to counterfeit many of the characteristics of the true Messiah spoken about by Moses & the prophets. This is how he was able to imitate some of the key characteristics of the genuine Messiah. But there were a few characteristics that he was not allowed to use in his schemes to counterfeit the Savior of the world. These “key” characteristics involve his true name, his true date of birth and his true date of crucifixion and resurrection. Satan was not allowed to use the “set-apart” Feasts of YaHuWaH given to Yisra’el for his own testimony. The only “dates” that he is allowed to use are those pertaining to the “Solar Calendar” used by the pagans who worship the sun, the moon and the stars. Satan’s first attempt at the “false Messiah” goes all the way back to “The Tower of Babel” with Nimrod (the great-grandson of Noah) and his worship of Moloch (Satan).

Enoch’s Constellations Testify of Messiah

Around 2,900 years before the birth of Yahuwshuwa Messiah, Enoch was shown by the angel Uriel the constellations that were created by YaHuWaH for the purpose of telling the gospel message and the prophecies of Messiah who would later on come to earth. There were 48 constellations in all, but 12 of these constellations were named after the 12 Tribes of Yisra’el. Later on, the pagans in Babylon, Greece & Rome got a hold of this information and renamed these constellations after fallen angels. Nimrod (the great grandson of Noah) wanted to build the Tower of Babel for this very reason. He wanted to communicate with the fallen angels and study the stars in order to practice divination and sorcery. But the constellations were never meant to be used in that way. YaHuWaH created the constellations to reveal his plan of salvation for mankind (Job 9:9 & Job 38:31, Amos 5:8), but Satan uses the constellations to cause people to worship him and the fallen angels. We are commanded however to worship the Creator and not the things that are created by him.

Nimrod’s Kingdom of Babylon

About 2,200 years before the birth of Messiah, Noah’s great grandson, Nimrod built the Tower of Babel (Genesis 10:10, 11:9).

The book of Yashar (Jasher) records that Nimrod consulted with the pagan priests of Ba’al (Satan) and he was told that if he committed an act of incest that he would receive greater occult powers and the ability to have what is called “the third eye” or the “all seeing eye of Horus.” And so Nimrod married his mother Semiramis, and together, they built the Babylonian Empire which combined their pagan religion with their form of government. They worshiped the stars, sun, and the moon, and they sacrificed their babies to Moloch. Noah’s son Shem was so angry about this, that he had Nimrod killed and his body parts were delivered to different provinces within Babylon as a warning to those who worshiped Moloch aka Satan. The book of Yashar (Jasher) which was originally part the scriptures because it is mentioned in other books of the Bible:

Yahuwshuwa (Joshua) 10:13 And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.

2nd Shemu’el (Samuel) 1:18 (Also he bade them teach the children of Judah the use of the bow: behold, it is written in the book of Jasher).

Nimrod’s wife/mother wanted to keep this false pagan religion alive in order to keep the money coming in. She consulted her astrologers who told her that on December 22nd the sun is the furthest away from the earth, but on December 25th, the sun is “born-again.” This is known as the “winter solstice” in paganism. Semiramis became pregnant on March 25th (Easter/Ishtar), which is called the spring equinox in paganism. She told the Babylonian people that Nimrod was the god of the sun, and that he impregnated her, with the rays of the sun.

Exactly 9 months later on December 25th, she gave birth to a son and named him Tammuz (Ezekiel 8:14). She told the Babylonians that Tammuz was a reincarnation of Nimrod the “sun-god” born on December 25th and that she was the “goddess of the moon” or the “Queen of Heaven.” Today the Roman Catholic Church officially named “Mary/Miryam” (the mother of our Messiah) “The Queen of Heaven” after this pagan fertility goddess (Jeremiah 7 & 44).

And so Semiramis then ordered the Babylonians to go into the forest and cut down a tree and decorate it with little balls (which were meant to be Nimrod’s testicles). This custom was meant to commemorate Nimrod who was “cut down” like a tree. Elohiym (God) hates this practice which is why he warned the children of Yisra’el not to learn this custom from the pagans.

Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah) 10:

1 Hear you the word which YHWH speaks unto you, O house of Yisra’el:

2 Thus says YHWH, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; (astrology) for the heathen are dismayed at them.

3 For the customs of the people are vain: for one cuts 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.

And today, Christ-Mass trees are erected supposedly in the name of “Jesus,” but this practice was started long before Yahuwshuwa  (Jesus) ever came to earth. Did YaHuWaH change his mind now? No, he still hates it and he says “learn NOT the ways of the heathen...”

YaHuWaH rebuked the children of Yisra’el for worshiping this Queen of Heaven who is called by various names i.e. Venus, Isis, Diana, Aphrodite, Ishtar, Easter, Astoreth, Catholic “Mary” etc.

Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah) 7:18 The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.

Pictured above is the Universal Mother goddess known as “The Queen of Heaven” (Semiramis) holding her baby son Tammuz born December 25th. Should we assimilate our Messiah to this pagan deity?

Listen to what YaHuWaH says about it:

(Debariym )Deuteronomy 12:

29 When YHWH your Elohiym cuts off from before you the nations which you go to dispossess, and you displace them and dwell in their land,

30 take heed to yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed from before you, and that you do not inquire after their gods, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their gods? I also will do likewise; for every abomination to YHWH which He hates they have done to their gods; for they burn even their sons and daughters in the fire to their gods.

31 You shall not worship YHWH your Elohiym in that way.

Did you get this? Let me paraphrase what Yah is saying:

“Don’t learn to worship me the same way that the heathen nations worship their gods and then say that you are doing it for me----it is an abomination!”

To those who would say: “We can take back the pagan holidays for Jesus” or to those who would say “Let’s put Christ back in Christmas...”

He does not have any affiliation to Christmas and he never did. There is a very sinister reason behind why December 25th was chosen as the alleged birthday of our Messiah. The papacy in 538 A.D. made Christmas official Roman Catholic Doctrine for no other reason than to have political correctness with the pagans.

Trying to put our beloved Messiah into “Christmas” is like erecting a life size statue of your ex-lover’s private parts right in front of your spouse at the foot of your marriage bed and then saying “honey look what I made for you....”

YaHuWaH hates the fact that his backsliding whoring wife Yisra’el went after her Ba’al’s and today he sees the Christian Church doing the identical thing and he wants these reminders out of his face!

Pictured here are all of the many “Christs” or false Messiah’s since the days of Nimrod, and they are all reincarnated on December 25th and crucified on March 25th (Ishtar/Easter).

YaHuWaH is telling us that he does not want us to worship him the same way that the pagans worship their gods and then say “we are doing it for you, Jesus”  he says this is an abomination!

According to author Mary Stewart Relphe, Ph.D of the book “When Your Money Fails, the formula for calculating the number of the beast in Revelation 13:18 involves translating a person’s name into Hebrew, Latin or Greek and then assigning a numerical value to each character in the respective alphabet.

Mary Stewart Relphe explains in her book, “When Your Money Fails” that she had been able to find 4 historical Antichrists, whose names add up to 666 when translated into Hebrew, Latin or Greek:

1.) Nimrod- (a descendant of Noah) His birthday was celebrated on December 25th in ancient Babylon as “the rebirth of the sun” and in Rome as Saturnalia; He had babies sacrificed to Moloch.

2.) King Nebuchadnezzar- erected a golden statue of himself and demanded worship. He executed those who refused to bow to his image and burned them in a furnace.

3.) Antiochus the IV- a Greek-Syrian dictator who defiled the Jewish Temple with pagan idols, and also claimed to be reincarnated on December 25th.

4.) Caesar Nero- tortured followers of the Hebrew Messiah and had them eaten by lions for entertainment. He also claimed to be the reincarnation of “Sol” the pagan sun-deity reincarnated on December 25th.

All of these historical Antichrists have had several things in common:

1.) All of them substituted the worship of our Creator YaHuWaH with pagan sun-god holidays and they sought to destroy true followers of YaHuWaH and his Holy Scriptures.

2.) They all had empires which have fallen (Revelations 17:10).

3.) And they all defiled the temple of YaHuWaH with idols and tried to force Yah’s people to worship an image.

4.) They all claimed to be a reincarnation of the pagan sun deity born on December 25th and they all claimed March 25th (Easter) as the date for the conception and crucifixion of these pagan deities.

5.) Their names all add up to 666 in their respective language and numeric systems of their empire.

Antiochus IV placed an idol of Zeus (Jupiter) in the Jewish temple, in the “Holy of Holies” and destroyed all the Old Testament Bibles he could find. He then gave himself the name “God Manifest” in Greek which is Epiphaneia. This name has the numerical value 666. The final Antichrist, that “man of sin the son of perdition” (2nd Thessalonians 2) will rebuild the 3rd Jewish Temple so that he can sit in the holy place declaring to be “God”:

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 24:15 “....the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet.”

YaHuWaH was also very angry with the children of Yisra’el for worshiping this pagan sun-god named Tammuz born December 25th:

Yechezqel (Ezekiel) 8:

5 Then said he unto me, Son of man, lift up your eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up mine eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry.

13 He said also unto me, Turn you yet again, and you shall see greater abominations that they do.

14 Then he brought me to the door of the gate of YHWH’s house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.

15 Then said he unto me, Have you seen this, O son of man? turn you yet again, and you shall see greater abominations than these.

16 And he brought me into the inner court of YHWH’s house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of YHWH, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of YHWH, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.

The Image of Jealousy

Pictured here is the Washington Monument in Washington D.C. This is the Image of Jealousy that YaHuWaH hates and it is also called “An Egyptian Obelisk” (Ezekiel 8:5). It is the image of Nimrod’s erect penis. This is what the Christmas Tree represents. It is Nimrod’s penis decorated with little balls that are meant to represent his testicles!

The Freemasons are responsible for designing Churches with steeples on them because steeples are powerful talismans that draw witchcraft power and attract demons. This is why YaHuWaH hates these images mentioned in Yechezqel (Ezekiel) 8 because he knows that they were deliberately designed to resemble Nimrod’s penis and to provoke him to jealousy!

The Biblical Cyclopedia, by McClintock and Strong, says: “Even the spires of churches are symbols retained from the old phallic worship” (“Phallus,” vol. VIII, p. 55).

Thomas Inman, in his book Ancient Pagan and Modern Christian Symbolism, writes that ancient fertility rites and phallic worship resulted in the setting up of various architectural structures such “as we now see towers or spires before our churches, and minarets before mosques” (p. XXII). This is sufficient evidence that our churches should not be adorned with such symbols and that they should have no connection to the worship of God.

As I did more research on steeples I discovered that in paganism they would cut the tops of trees off in the forest and make “phallic” symbols. In the King James Version of the Bible, these symbols are “groves.”

In the New King James Version the word “Asherah” is used for “groves.” Asherah is the Phoenician “goddess of love” also known as Venus in Rome (aka “Mary” to Catholics). The word “Asherah” in Hebrew comes from the root word “ashar” meaning “straight or erect” hence the phallic symbol or obelisk is “an image of the male reproductive organ.”

Rome is the city with the greatest number of obelisks in the world. There are no less than 19 spires to be found in city squares or in gardens belonging to noble mansions.

St. Peter’s Square is adorned with Rome’s most famous obelisk without hieroglyphs. The Obelisk in St. Peter’s Square lies between the double colonnade and was brought to Rome from Heliopolis. Emperor Caligula had it brought to Rome in 37 A.D., to be used as a decoration for what a few years later would have been known as Nero’s Circus. Since St. Peter’s was founded by the remains of this circus, for a very long time the obelisk stood by the side of the basilica.

What we see here is the “worship of nature” because Obelisks, are used by occultists and witches to summon the powers of “nature” yet they are actually summoning Satan’s power.

Steeples are Phallic symbols and YaHuWaH tells us to destroy them:

Shemoth (Exodus) 34:13 But you shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves…

Debariym (Deuteronomy) 7:5 But thus shall you deal with them; you shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their grovesand burn their graven images with fire.

Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah) 43:13 He shall break also the images of Bethshemesh, that is in the land of Egypt; and the houses of the gods of the Egyptians shall he burn with fire. (KJV)

Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah) 43:13 He shall break the obelisks of Heliopolis, which is in the land of Egypt, and the temples of the gods of Egypt he shall burn with fire. (English Standard Version)

Here in the English Standard Version the phrase “Obelisk of Heliopolis” is specified.

Child Mass Services to Moloch

Pictured here is the half man, half horned animal god known as Moloch (Satan). December 25th was the day that this deity required that children were sacrificed on the altar to him! Why December 25th? Because this is known in paganism as “the winter solstice” and it is supposedly the best time to offer up babies to Satan because the sun is being “reborn.” Satan wants to be the brightest star in the solar system, which is why he wants to be known as “the god of the Sun.” In Malachi 4:2 our Messiah YaHuW’shuwa , is called “the Sun of Righteousness” and he is the true “morning star” not Satan! In the Greek Septuagint, the Gnostics Origen & Clement of Alexandria corrupted the text in Isaiah 14:12 to insinuate that it was Lucifer who was the “morning star” who fell from heaven. However, the Hebrew Masoretic text says that it was “the son of the morning” (not the morning star) who fell.

The people of Babylon would make a “wish list” for Moloch and then they would place their babies to be burned alive into the arms of this god Moloch along with their wish list, and they believed that by offering up their babies to this god on December 25th, they would receive everything that they had requested on their wish list in the year to come.

The image of Moloch was a giant statue made of iron. Underneath this image was an oven, and it was stoked with wood until it became bright red. The image resembled today’s modern day “Satan Claws” (Santa Claus) and people are still “offering up their children” to Moloch the god of prosperity and materialism when they ignorantly allow their children to sit on the lap of the image of Santa/Satan.

The word “mass” in English comes from a Latin word that is defined as follows: “a considerable assemblage, number, or quantity: a mass of troops, the masses, a dismissal.” The word later on became associated with “mass murder” as in “massacre.” Hence the word “mass” is applied as follows: “pertaining to, involving, or affecting a large number of people: mass unemployment; mass migrations; mass murder.”

How did we derive the term “Christ Mass”? It stems from the perpetual sacrifice of our Messiah Yahuwshuwa (supposedly) at every Catholic Mass:

“Public celebration of the Eucharist in the Roman Catholic Church and some
Protestant churches. The sacrament of the Eucharist.”

Every time we say “Merry Christ Mass” we are declaring that we are “Merry” about the “Mass Murder” of our Messiah on millions of altars in Catholic Churches across the globe on a daily basis! Roman Catholicism teaches that Yahuwshuwa (Jesus) must be crucified over and over again daily at each and every Mass. They teach that his once and for all sacrifice on the cross was not sufficient to atone for sin!

This very same Babylonian religion originated at the Tower of Babel, and was carried over into other cultures under different names. In Egypt Semiramis was known as Isis, Queen of Heaven and Tammuz was known as Horus. Nimrod was known as Seb.

The Egyptian priests placed these initials I H S of the pagan trinity (Isis, Horus & Seb) on a round wafer to commemorate the sun-god and they ate it each year on December 25th believing that the sun-god was being reincarnated in them as they ate this wafer-god. They re-enacted the death of Nimrod on a “tree” on March 25th (Easter) and believed he would be reincarnated on December 25th. This re-enactment was called a “Mass” or Massacre.

Today, these same initials of I H S appear on the Catholic Eucharist Wafer. The Catholic Catechism teaches that the priest has the power to pull Christ down from his throne and crucify him again and again at each Mass. The Catechism states concerning Christ:

“At each mass, he performs the function of the victim anew...” See my other article entitled “What is Christ Mass & Should You Be Merry About It?”

The Catholic Trinity secretly disguises a different trinity than what most Christians believe in:

The Pope as the “Holy Father,” Jesus as the pagan sun-god (reincarnation of Tammuz), and Mary as the Holy Spirit. Hence, Isis (Mary), Horus (Jesus), Seb (Pope/Father).

Pictured here is the original “Trinity” of the Father (Nimrod), the Mother (Semiramis), and the Son (Tammuz). The Roman Emperor Constantine borrowed this pagan myth and assimilated it to our Messiah. He renamed Nimrod “Holy Father” (every Pope is supposedly a reincarnation of Nimrod the sun-god). The title “Pope” in Latin is Pappas meaning “Father” (Pater in Greek). Constantine also renamed Semiramis “Mary” or the Holy Spirit. He renamed Tammuz “J’Zeus.”

Hanukkah: The Re-Dedication of YaHuWaH’s Temple

About 167 years before Messiah came to earth, there was a Greek-Syrian dictator known as Antiochus. Antiochus went into the Jewish temple and set up an abominable image of Zeus the pagan sun-god on December 25th and claimed that he was a reincarnation of Zeus on December 25th. He gave himself the title “Epiphanies” which in Greek means “God Manifest” as he claimed that he was a reincarnation of “God” on December 25th.

Interestingly, the word “Epiphanies” adds up to 666 in the Greek alpha-numeric system. Antiochus was a precursor to the final Antichrist that will appear in the 3rd Jewish Temple before the second coming of YaHuW’shuwa Messiah. Satan has now tried to launch a campaign against Hanukkah calling it “pagan” when in reality Hanukkah celebrates the overthrow of pagan sun-god worship that is done each year on December 25th. Hanukkah is the exact anti-thesis to Christmas and our Messiah celebrated it because it commemorates the re-dedication of his Father’s House (see John 10:22). The only man-made tradition that has been “added” to the “Feast of Dedication” by Judaism is the legend of the 8-day miracle of the oil that kept the menorah lit for eight days in a row on a one-day supply of oil. The Talmud gives hints to the idea that this miracle might have indeed taken place, but it cannot be substantiated by the book of Maccabees. Also the temple menorah according to scripture has only 7 branches--- not 9 branches. I believe in celebrating Hanukkah by reading the story of the Maccabees to our children and remembering the YaHuW’diy (Jewish) people who died at the hands of his evil dictator because they loved the commandments of YaHuWaH and they refused to bow to a pagan idol. But I believe in using the 7-branch temple menorah and not the 9-branch menorah invented by traditions of men. There is also much evidence that reveals that our Messiah was conceived on Hanukkah and he was born 9 months later in September on the Feast of Trumpets.


The original name for our Messiah is not “Jesus” but it is Joshua. In Ancient Hebrew it is rendered as “Yahuwshuwa ,” but in modern Hebrew it is Yehowshuwa. This is the name that his parents gave him which literally means “YaHuWaH is salvation.”

When the angel Gabriel appeared to Miryam (Mary) the mother of Yahuwshuwa , he did not tell her to give him a Greek name. Gabriel said to name him Yahuwshuwa “for he shall save” his people.

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and you shall call his name Yahuwshuwa (JESUS): for he shall save his people from their sins.

Whose Birthday Are You Really Celebrating? J’Zeus or Yahuwshuwa? 

The Greeks called their supreme deity “Zeus” but when they were receiving Yahuwshuwa as their Messiah in the 1st Century, they began placing a letter “Y” in front of Zeus as Y’Zeus since Yah is the Hebrew name for the self-existent eternal Elohiym (God). From Y’Zeus, Ieosus became the Greek way to spell Yahuwshuwa (Joshua). Later on when the English translations of the Bible went into print, a new letter was added to the alphabet---the letter “J” and it was meant to have the “Y” sound. From there J’Zeus or Ieosus became Jeosus in Greek as the transliteration for Yahuwshuwa . The Greek transliteration of Yahuwshuwa  was supposed to sound like “Yeosus” or Ieosus but as time went on in American culture, the letter “J” began to take on the pronunciation of the hard “G” sound. Hence today, the name Jesus sounds more like “Geezus” than the Greek “Yaysoos” or the Hebrew Yahuwshuwa . “Geezus” means nothing to people living in Yisra’el or Hebrew speaking people. But Yahuwshuwa (Joshua) is his real name given to him by his heavenly Father.

In Latin the term “Io” means “hail” or “praise.” Hence on December 25th in Ancient Rome, people would give praises to the god Saturn on December 25th as they would shout “Io, Saturnalia, Io, Saturnalia!” This was a day for drunkenness, orgies, child sacrifices and debauchery. Later on the Roman pagan god of Jupiter & the Greek pagan god Zeus were merged into J’Zeus and so the phrase “Io Zeus, Io Zeus” was also used to say “Praise Zeus.” The Greek transliteration for the name of our Messiah went from YaHuW’shuwa  to Ieosus and this is how we came to the name J’Zeus. So you see, Io Zeus is the same thing as Ieosus which means “Praise Zeus!”

In 167 B.C. Antiochus Epiphanies sacrificed a pig on the altar of sacrifice in the Jewish Temple, and he outlawed the holy feasts of YaHuWaH from Leviticus 23 as he persecuted the Jewish people. He burned all of the Torah scrolls he could find and he would not allow the Jewish people to obey the commandments of YaHuWaH. He forced them to eat pork against their will and he forced them to worship him instead as the reincarnation of Zeus on December 25th and if they did not, they were brutally tortured and killed.

During the days when Antiochus persecuted the Jews, there was a Jewish man by the name of Judah Maccabees. He and his army began a revolt and they took back YaHuWaH’s temple and cleansed it.

About 160 years after the Maccabean Revolt, Miryam/Mary conceived Yahuwshuwa our Messiah on Hanukkah in 4 B.C. on December 13th. This can be calculated precisely through scripture by knowing the date of John the Baptist’s birth from Luke chapter 1:5-24. John the Baptist’s father Zechariah was a priest in the temple and of the division of Abijah. In the book of 1st Chronicles 24 we find out that King David had divided up the priesthood into 24 courses annually. There were 24 priests and each one would serve for 2 weeks throughout the year. Zechariah, was of the division of Abijah (the eighth course of the Hebrew year), and so he would serve in the Jewish month of Sivan (June on our calendar). Zechariah went home to his wife Elizabeth and she conceived immediately following his temple duty according to the words of the angel Gabriel. We also know from Luke 1:24-26 that Elizabeth was in her 6th month of pregnancy when Miriyam (Mary) conceived the Messiah in her womb. We can count 271 days (9 months) from when Elizabeth conceived (around June 21st) and this takes us to John the the Baptist’s birth on Passover in 3 B.C. And then we can count 180 days (6 months) from John’s birth and that takes us to when our Messiah was born on September 11th in 3 B.C. on the Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teruah).

In the days when John the Apostle had been exiled to Patmos, (around the year 96 A.D.), the Roman Empire under Nero Caesar was in power over the entire world. Rome’s pagan religion was a form of Ba’al worship carried over from ancient Babylon and Egypt. Nero, who thought that he was divine, (believing he was a reincarnation of Mithra) felt threatened about the fact that the gospel of our Messiah Yahuwshuwa was spreading throughout the Roman Empire. He feared that the people would forsake their loyalty to him, and so Nero persecuted the followers of Messiah as he would have them thrown to the lions to be eaten, for entertainment. But this only caused the spectators to become convicted as they were moved by the Holy Spirit when they these believers who were willing to lay down their lives for their Messiah. Nero’s plan to stomp out the gospel back-fired and as a result of these persecutions, and the conversions only increased. Satan’s plan was not working and so he formulated another strategy. It all began with Constantine, the son of a Roman Emperor.

After his father died, Constantine felt that he was the rightful heir to his father’s throne, but Maxentius was also in line to take the throne as the next Emperor of Rome. So in 312 A.D., on October 28th at the Stone Milvian Bridge at the Tiber River, Constantine’s enemy, Maxentius and his army stood between Constantine and the throne. As Constantine and his troops were greatly outnumbered, tradition says that Constantine saw a vision of an Egyptian Ankh (a pagan symbol of Tammuz & Semiramis) in the sky as he heard the words “in this sign conquer.” This is an amazing discovery in light of Revelation 6:2, as the Anti-Messiah (Antichrist) riding a white horse goes forth conquering:

Chazown (Revelation) 6:2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

Constantine made a brilliant political move that would make him popular with both the pagans and the Christians. Instead of destroying the heathen temples and idols as Yah commands us to do in his word, Constantine simply recycled the pagan statues, naming them after “Christian” saints. The statue of the mythological god Neptune for instance was renamed “Saint Peter” along with many others.----“Constantine” by Ramsey Mac Mullen, published by Dial Press Crosscurrents in World History Series, New York, 1969, Pg. 72

After this infamous vision of the pagan cross, Constantine sprinkled his troops in baptism, requiring no repentance for sin, no conversion, no faith in Messiah or his sacrifice on the tree. These brutish men instantly became “Christians” according to Constantine. He also enforced infant baptism (which was completely unbiblical) and made it mandatory for Roman citizenship. This precluded people from ever having a genuine conversion. Under the guise of Christianity, Constantine and his troops then conquered the city of Rome and took over the Roman government in 312 A.D. In 313 A.D., Constantine issued a “decree of tolerance” known as “The Edict of Milan” giving total religious freedom to Christians and putting an end to the persecutions.

This seemed like a major victory for Christians, since they would no longer have to be tortured for their faith in Messiah. Yet Satan was using this political move to start a new religion called “Roman Catholicism.” The word Catholic means “universal” in Greek and so this means that Satan has always intended for this religion to take over the world, and become a “One World Church.” From its very foundations, world domination was the motivation behind Roman Catholicism. Later on in 325 A.D., Constantine set up the “Council of Nicaea” and he became “Summus Pontifex” (the official Title of a Pope). The Council of Nicaea was basically an Ecumenical Movement that implemented a “Greco-Romanized” version of the one true faith of our Messiah Yahuwshuwa and a counterfeit religion was born. At this council, the “Nicene Creed” was established and the pagan holiday of “Easter” was put into Roman Law as a replacement to the true Biblical Passover. Even though Constantine claimed to have converted to the Messiah of Yisra’el, he secretly worshiped “Mithra” the pagan sun-god born on December 25th. He believed he could bring unity to Rome by keeping this pagan religion and combining it with Christianity.

Constantine also did not remove the statues from the pagan temples. He instead gave them “Christian” names. He named Venus “Mary” and he named “Sol” (Mithra the pagan sun-god) “Jesus.”

He wrote:

“…the Jews are dogs and the Christians should have nothing to do with the Jews…God has shown us a better way…”

He also outlawed the true Sabbath and enforced “Sun-day” worship for “Mithra” disguised as “J’Zeus.” Any true believer in Messiah who was caught keeping the feasts of YaHuWaH from Leviticus 23 was executed for their crimes.

In the 5th Century, the Catholic Church officially made Christ Mass on December 25th the official date for celebrating the birth of Messiah because of Constantine’s influence.

Constantine was the first Pope historically giving himself the title “Pontifex Maximus” which is still to this day the official title of a Pope. This literally means “The Ultimate Bridge” between Yah and man! In other words, the word “Pontiff” means “bridge” as every Pope purports to be the bridge or mediator between Elohiym and mankind just like our Messiah Yahuwshuwa !

The word “pope” means “father” in Latin and Yahuwshuwa  said “call no man upon the earth your father, for there is one who is your father...” (Matthew 23:9)

So where does the term “Christ Mass” have its origin? The Catholic Mass is a Massacre of Christ where he is being crucified all over again according to Catholic dogma.

When we say “Merry Christ Mass” we are saying “Let’s be Merry about crucifying our Savior afresh...”

But Hebrews 6 tells us “seeing they crucify to themselves the son of Elohiym afresh and put him to an open shame...”

If we say “Merry Christ Mass” we are saying that we are merry about putting our Messiah, Yahuwshuwa to an open shame!

Why does the Catholic Church believe he must be crucified afresh? Because they teach that Yahuwshuwa did not inherit a mortal body (a corruptible physical nature like us), and that he did not crucify the sinful nature on the cross. But Romans 8:3 says that Yahuwshuwa  (Jesus) “came in the likeness of sinful flesh...” so that he could destroy sin in the flesh once and for all!

Romans 6:10 ...For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he lives, he lives unto Elohiym.

Catholicism teaches that Yahuwshuwa inherited a sinless divine nature from Mary his mother as they teach that she was born without original sin. This is what is called the “Immaculate Conception.” Most Protestants think this has to do with the virgin birth of Messiah, but it does not. The Immaculate Conception is about Mary’s conception and birth supposedly without original sin. And of course this is total blasphemy and a lie.

Mary, although a set-apart and holy woman, was born with a sinful nature like everyone else and she herself acknowledged her need for Yahuwshuwa to save her.

And so this is what is so blasphemous about the Catholic Mass and why we as believers should have nothing to do with saying “Merry Christ Mass.”

In 1st Yahuwchanon (John) 4:3 in the King James Version (other versions deleted this verse) it gives us a litmus test for how to “try the spirits” to see whether or not they are from Elohiym. It says that “every spirit” which denies or “confesses not” that “Yahuwshuwa Messiah is come in the flesh” (with a mortal body) is from the Antichrist. What does this mean “come in the flesh?” The Greek word for “flesh” in this verse is “sarx” which means “having a sensual nature.” This means that Yahuwshuwa had a mortal body. This simply means that he did not have a sinful nature or an “evil inclination” but he was “tempted in all things as we are yet without sin” (Hebrews 4:15). His blood came from his Heavenly Father, but his mortal (corruptible) body came from his mother. Yahuwshuwa had to possess both natures in order to be the anointed Savior. He had to have an incorruptible nature spiritually, having blood that was perfect and without sin so as to be the perfect atonement for sin. He had to also possess a mortal body so that he could put to death “the body of sins” (Colossians 2:11, 1st Peter 2:24, Romans 6:6).

This Catholic Doctrine which says that Mary was born without original sin and that YaHuW’shuwa did not possess a mortal body (sensual nature) because of her, is from the Antichrist!

Yahuwshuwa had to possess a human or sensual nature in order to be tempted and to destroy sin on the cross once and for all.

Yahuwshuwa was 100% Elohiym and 100% Human at the same time.

And so the Catholic Mass is Anti-Messiah doctrine which denies that Yahuwshuwa destroyed the carnal sinful nature on the cross once and for all. That is why they teach he must perform the function of the victim anew at every Mass...”

Now we see how “Anti-Christ Christ-Mass really is!

If Yahuwshuwa is supposedly another reincarnation of all the false pagan Messiah’s born December 25th that have come up through the centuries i.e. Nimrod, Tammuz, Apollo, Zeus, Bacchus, Krishna, etc. then “he is not come in the flesh.” In other words this teaching insinuates that “the Messiah” is a consciousness rather than a person! Yahuwshuwa is the Messiah fully in the flesh! The Catholic Mass denies this by teaching that he must be crucified over and over again at each Mass.

Today, Christendom has borrowed much of its system from the ancient Babylonian religion of Nimrod and Semiramis, which is why we are commanded to come out of this “woman,” called MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS:

Chazown (Revelation) 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues.

In the 1500’s many people obeyed this commandment when they left Roman Catholicism and thus began the biggest revival in European history. We call this The Protestant Reformation

The Puritans Abolished Christ Mass

In the year 1620, when English Puritans came to America on the Mayflower, their main objective was to get away from the tyranny of the Roman Papacy and the influence of the pagan customs in Europe. In particular it was the Roman Saturnalia that was later disguised as Christmas, which they found most offensive as these Puritans followed the Holy Scriptures. They knew that our Creator had already warned us against such practices, and so when they arrived here in America, they determined to create laws that would abolish such idolatry. It was our biblical foundations that made America great, but as time went on the great apostasy began to creep in which has led our nation to be under the curses of Deuteronomy 28. 

As late as the 1860’s, Christmas was still a regular work and school day in Massachusetts. History records that when the Puritans came to power in England, Parliament, in June, 1647, passed legislation abolishing Christmas and other holidays. In this legislation, they wrote the following:

“For as much as the feast of the nativity of Christ, Easter, and other festivals, commonly called holy days, have been here-to-fore superstitiously used and observed; be it ordained that the said feasts, and all other festivals, commonly called holy days, be no longer observed as festivals.”

The American Puritan movement took an even stronger stand against these pagan holidays. Samuel Miller, a Puritan and professor of history and church government at Princeton Seminary, stated in 1896 in his book, why Presbyterians reject the holy days of Christmas and Easter. He stated that “the Scriptures were the only infallible rule of faith and practice, and that no rite or ceremony ought to have a place in the public worship of Yahweh, which is not warranted in Scripture. Not only does the celebration of non-biblical holidays lack a scriptural foundation, but the scriptures positively discount it.” [Miller, pgs. 65, 74]

Presbyterians were not the only ones who maintained a strong stand against Christmas, as there were many other Christians who held to similar convictions. As a matter of fact, the famous preacher, Charles Spurgeon, stated in a sermon given on Christmas Eve, December 24th 1871, the following:

“We have no superstitious regard for times and seasons. Certainly we do not believe in the present ecclesiastical arrangement called Christmas: first, because we do not believe in the mass at all, but abhor it, whether it be said or sung in Latin or English; and secondly, because we find no scriptural warrant whatever for observing any day as the birthday of the Savior; and, consequently, it’s observance is a superstition, because not of divine authority.” [C. H. Spurgeon, Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit, 1971, pg. 697]

Opposition to these church holidays remained in American Presbyterianism through the latter half of the 19th century. Speaking following the Civil War, historian Ernest Trice Thompson wrote the following:

“There was no recognition of either Christmas or Easter in any of the Protestant churches, except the Episcopal and Lutheran. For a full generation after the Civil War, the religious journals of the South mentioned Christmas only to observe that there was no reason to believe that Jesus was actually born on December 25th; it was not recognized as a day of any religious significance in the Presbyterian Church” [Ernest Trice Thompson, Presbyterians In the South, 1973, Vol. 2, pg. 434.] FSCG *

*Note: Alabama was the USA State to recognize Christmas, and did not do so until 1836. [“Tidbits,” Cheyenne, Wy. 82007, Burchett Publishing, Issue #271]

“It was not until the turn of the 19th century that various Christmas customs began appearing in Presbyterian churches. There began to be reports of: 1) Frivolities like Saint Nicholas in children’s Sunday schools. 2) Use of Christmas trees and other festivities.

The appearance of Easter and Christmas in the official calendar of the Southern Presbyterian church did not actually occur until the late 1940’s and 1950’s, as a work of growing apostasy in the church. Even so, as late as 1962, the Synod of the Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland stated that they rejected the celebrations of Christmas and Easter.

History of the Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland, 1893-1970, pg. 383].Christmas has clearly brought an infusion of paganism into the church that was initially prohibited among all of God’s people…..”

Why has there been such a revival of these pagan holidays in America over the past 100 years? The scriptures tell us that this would be a symptom of the great apostasy in the last days:

1st Timotiyos (Timothy) 4:1 Now the Spirit speaks expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.

As we approach the second coming of Yahuwshuwa ha’Mashiyach (Jesus the Messiah), the Bible tells us that many shall depart from the faith of the Jewish Apostles and give heed to doctrines of devils.

Many Yahuwdiy (Jews) believe that Yahuwshuwa was a false pagan Messiah because Christianity has propagated this lie by telling the world that he was born on December 25th.

This represents to the Jewish people a day in which Antiochus Epiphanies forced them to worship Zeus under penalty of death. They also see that Christians who claim to follow the Jewish Messiah are celebrating his resurrection on “Easter” which often times comes one month earlier than Passover on the solar pagan calendar. They view this as a big joke because Christians claim that Yahuwshuwa is the “Passover Lamb” yet they celebrate his resurrection one month before Passover according to the Roman Papacy who corrupted YaHuWaH’s calendar. It is no wonder why the Jewish people have a hard time accepting YaHuW’shuwa  as the Messiah, with all of the confusing mixture of Babylonian sun-god worship which only serves to distort the image of the prophesied Jewish Messiah of the scriptures.

Yahuwshuwa declared to the woman at the well:

Yahuwchanon (John) 4:22 You worship you know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Yahuwdiy (Jews). 

Any Jew knows that YaHuWaH would never allow the Messiah to be born on a pagan sun-god day. Any Jew knows that when Messiah comes he will be born on a Holy day of YaHuWaH from Leviticus 23. YaHuWaH commands us to observe his feasts as a sign of our Covenant with him forever!

Celebrating the Appointed Feasts of YaHuWaH versus the Pagan Days that Commemorate Nimrod

The Holy Feast days of YaHuWaH were never meant to go away with the New Covenant. All of the pagan sun-god worship festivals that Christianity has adopted instead point to the Antichrist or Nimrod (the first impostor) to the true Hebrew Messiah in history. We can unveil the true Jewish Messiah by telling the truth that our Savior Yahuwshuwa was born on a holy feast day of YaHuWaH and not on a man-made pagan sun-god day.

Qolasiym (Colossians) 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days.

This verse is often used out of context to justify keeping pagan holidays, but it is saying just the opposite. We are not to judge those who want to keep the feasts of YaHuWaH from Leviticus 23 that are called “holy.” We don’t have to sacrifice animals any longer under the new administration of grace. Every believer in Yahuwshuwa is now under the royal priesthood of Melchizedek (1st Peter 2:9), and so we do not need to do the temple ceremonial laws when keeping these feasts. We can be led by the Holy Spirit in how we keep these holy days. This verse is in no way condoning keeping pagan days, because YaHuWaH never called them holy in the first place.

Only when we start associating YaHuW’shuwa with the Holy Days of YaHuWaH will the Jewish people begin to recognize him as the true Jewish Messiah.

The Jewish people are on YaHuWaH’s top priority list because in Yahuwchanon (John) 4:22 Messiah revealed to us that “salvation comes from the House of Judah” (Jews). It is a small sacrifice for us as believers to give up man-made traditions in order to win them back:

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Messiah: for it is the power of Elohiym unto salvation to everyone that believes; to the Yahuwdiy (Jew) first, and also to the Greek.

Do you remember what Yahuwshuwa  said concerning traditions of men?

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 15:6 Thus have you made the commandment of Elohiym of none effect by your tradition.

If we want the commandments of YaHuWaH to once again become effective in our lives, we must abandon the “traditions of men.”

The Mosaic Law (Torah) is not “done away with” (Matthew 5:17-19), but rather it has been transferred from stone into “fleshy tables of the heart” (2nd Corinthians 3:3). Under the New Covenant, the same laws that were given to us in stone through Moses were given to every believer on the Day of Pentecost (called Shabuoth) written upon our minds and hearts (Jeremiah 31:31,Hebrews 8:10, 10:16).

Before we can see the same fire from heaven as in the days when EliYaHuW (Elijah) offered up the sacrifice on Mount Carmel, we must first follow the same steps that Elijah followed. He did several things in 1st Kings 18 before YaHuWaH Elohiym consumed the sacrifice:

1.) He repaired the broken down altar. This means that he re-established true biblical worship not patterned after Ba’al or sun-god worship.

2.) He set up 12 stones after the 12 tribes “from whom the word of Elohiym came.” This means that he re-established the plum-line of the Torah (Mosaic Law).

3.) He watered the sacrifice “three times” with “four barrels.” This symbolizes three major outpourings of the Holy Spirit in history. The number four symbolizes the “four corners” of the earth or “harvest.” This means that the pattern for true revival will always be preceded by the “washing of water by the word” (Ephesians 5:26). In other words, a return to the scriptures is the plum-line to a true revival----and not merely “manifestations.” This means the baptism of repentance (the water of the word) must precede the baptism in fire (power). The true fire of the Holy Spirit will consume the body of believers only when these steps are followed. We cannot by-pass the sacrifice (self-denial) of Messiah and repentance. We cannot skip over these steps and run towards the “fire” or we will end up with “strange fire” which is a counterfeit.

The Testimony of Yahuwshuwa

In Revelation 19:10 we read that the “testimony of Yahuwshuwa is the spirit of prophecy.” We also read in Revelation 12:17 that the dragon will make war with the remnant of Yisra’el’s seed that “keep the commandments and have the testimony of Yahuwshuwa Messiah.” And lastly we find out in Revelation 22:14 that only those who “do his commandments” may have right to eat from the tree of life, and may enter into the gate of the New Yerushalayim (Jerusalem)!

This being the case, don’t you want to know what the “testimony of Yahuwshuwa” is? Don’t you want to find out what all of this means so that you may be able to do the commandments?

The holy feast days of YaHuWaH are commanded for “all Yisra’el” (not only the house of Judah or the Jews) and they are the “Testimony of Yahuwshuwa” because they declare his testimony as follows:

1.) Passover: The death of Yahuwshuwa Messiah on the cross as our Passover Lamb

2.) Feast of Unleavened Bread: The burial of Yahuwshuwa Messiah.

3.) First Fruits: Yahuwshuwa’s true resurrection day. He went into the lowest parts of the earth and brought before the Father “the first fruits” of men’s souls (Ephesians 4:8; 1st Corinthians 15:20-23; James 1:18; Revelation 14:4).

4.) Feast of Weeks/Pentecost: Yahuwshuwa baptized believers in fire and the Holy Spirit as he promised; He also wrote the Torah/Law in our hearts and minds as the sign of the New Covenant.

5.) Feast of Trumpets: Yahuwshuwa’s true date of birth on September 11th in 3 B.C. the Father “announced his son” with a great sound of a trumpet blast into the world; the future catching away of the bride at the “last trump.”

6.) Day of Atonement: Yahuwshuwa announced in the temple on Yom Kippur that he had fulfilled Isaiah 61 as the “anointed one” who was to come. He proclaimed the “acceptable year of YHWH” that year for Yisra’el’s sins had been forgiven because of him; He became the “scapegoat” by taking away sin and took it out in the wilderness for 40 days, never to return (as far as the east is from the west, Luke 4:18-21).

7.) Feast of Tabernacles: Yahuwshuwa dwelled in the sukkah or manger with his parents during this eight day feast shortly after his birth; The future consummation of the wedding between Messiah and his bride. He will drink the 4th cup of the Kingdom in the New Millennium and his bride shall “tabernacle” or dwell in peace and safety with him for 1,000 years.

8.) Weekly Sabbath: Yahuwshuwa resurrected on Saturday night at sundown (the first day of the week) “three days and three nights” after his Wednesday Passover crucifixion and this is why he declared “I am Lord of the Sabbath.”

Yahuwshuwa will fulfill the Sabbath Millennium (7,000 years from creation) as 1,000 years of rest when we receive our new bodies. 2nd Peter 3:8 says that one day is as one thousand years with YaHuWaH.

Seven Feasts & Seven Branch Menorah a Sign of Our Covenant with YaHuWaH

As Renewed Covenant believers who are born-again by the Holy Spirit and washed in the blood of the lamb, we are now grafted into the Olive Tree (Yisra’el) according to Romans 11, and we are “part of the commonwealth of Yisra’el” (Ephesians 2:12). Now, because we are Renewed Covenant Yisra’el, we are still commanded to keep his “Sabbaths” (Feasts) as a “sign” between us and him forever. This is what sanctifies us and sets us apart from the other pagan religions of the world:

Shemoth (Exodus) 31:13 Speak you also unto the children of Yisra’el, saying, Verily my sabbaths you shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that you may know that I am YHWH that does sanctify you.

Yechezqel (Ezekiel) 20:12 Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them that they might know that I am YHWH that sanctify them.

Yechezqel (Ezekiel) 20:20 And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that you may know that I am YHWH your Elohiym.

Why should we abandon the pagan feasts of Nimrod made to appear “Christian?”

1.) Because they are an abomination to YaHuWaH, and he hates them.

2.) Because they defile us and keep us in deception.

3.) Because they point to another Christ, not the true Messiah of Yisra’el.

4.) Because the Anti-Messiah will mark his own children with the “sign” which are the feasts ordained by the Roman Papacy.

Why should we keep the Feasts of YaHuWaH?

1.) They are a sign between us and him forever.

2.) They declare the testimony of Yahuwshuwa.

3.) They are called “holy convocations” (rehearsals) of prophetic future events.

YaHuWaH has given us a “sign” of his covenant forever and they are his appointed feasts and Sabbaths!

The elect have their names written in the right hand of the Lamb who sits on the throne:

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 49:16 Behold, I have graven you upon the palms of my hands; your walls are continually before me.

Chazown (Revelation) 5:1 And I saw the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.

The Lamb has the Book of Life written in his right hand with “seven seals.” These Seven Seals are the Seven Feasts of YaHuWaH!

But Satan has his own “seal” that he marks his followers with!


Bereshiyth (Genesis) 3:

1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which YaHuWaH Elohiym had made. And he said unto the woman, Yes, has Elohiym said, You shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, Elohiym has said, You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.

4 And the serpent said unto the woman, You shall not surely die:

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Chazown (Revelation) 13:18 tells us to “count the number of the beast” and guess what the numerical value of the words “Serpent & Satan” add up to in the Hebrew Aleph-beyt?

December 24th is Christ Mass “Eve” and it was “Eve” who was beguiled by the serpent in the garden (Genesis 3:13). December 24th is also the 358th day of the solar year and the numerical value for the word “serpent” in Hebrew is three letters as follows:

Shin = 300
Chets = 8
Nun = 50
Grand Total = 358!

The name Satan & Santa in Hebrew also consist of the following three letters:

Shin = 300
Thet = 9
Nun = 50
Grand Total = 359! 

December 25th is the 359th of the year and the 359th chapter in the Bible is 1st Chronicles 21:1, which is the very first time that the name Satan is mentioned!
