TO THOSE WHO HAVE EYES TO SEE, LET THEM SEE...
TO THOSE THAT HATH SEEN AND ARE AWAKEN, BE SOBER AND STAY AWAKE, HOLD FAST TO THE TRUTH OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST OUR SAVIOR AND BE WATCHFUL ...
2 Timothy 1:7King James Version (KJV)
7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
John 10:27-28King James Version (KJV)
27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
FROM GENESIS ALL THE WAY THRU REVELATIONS HEATHEN IS MENTIONED, THEREFORE HEATHEN HAS A SIGNIFICANCE IN PLAYING A ROLE IN OUR LIVES. JEREMIAH 10 FOREWARNS US REGARDING THIS DOCTRINE.
JEREMIAH 10:2-5, (WARNED US NOT TO LEARN THE WAYS OF THE HEATHEN), 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.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.
VERSE 8:But they are altogether brutish and foolish: the stock is a doctrine of vanities. VERSE 14&15 Every man is brutish in his knowledge: every founder is confounded by the graven image: for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them.
15 They are vanity, and the work of errors: in the time of their visitation they shall perish. VERSE 18,19,20,21 For thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will sling out the inhabitants of the land at this once, and will distress them, that they may find it so.
19 Woe is me for my hurt! my wound is grievous; but I said, Truly this is a grief, and I must bear it.20 My tabernacle is spoiled, and all my cords are broken: my children are gone forth of me, and they are not: there is none to stretch forth my tent any more, and to set up my curtains.21 For the pastors are become brutish, and have not sought the Lord: therefore they shall not prosper, and all their flocks shall be scattered. VERSE 23,24 O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.24 O Lord, correct me, but with judgment; not in thine anger, lest thou bring me to nothing.
LET US CONNECT THE DOTS AND LET GOD HELP US SOLVE THE PUZZLE, THE MYSTERY OF THE BIBLE IS REALLY EXCITING AND AMAZING AND WHEN IT IS REVEALED TO THE TRUE SEEKERS AND BELIEVERS IT PROVIDES GREAT SUSTENANCE TO THE SOUL INCREASING NOT JUST KNOWLEDGE OF GOD BUT HOPE, INNER PEACE, FAITH, LOVE AND COMPASSION TO PEOPLE TO MAKE YOU WANT THEM DRAW CLOSE TO GOD.
WE KNOW THAT XMAS IS A TRADITION OF MEN WAY BACK ANCIENT TIMES, A TRADITION OF PAGANS WHICH IS ASSOCIATED WITH DEVIL ORIGIN TO HONOUR THEIR OWN GOD, THOUGH WE ARE SAVED BY GRACE THRU FAITH WE CANNOT USE IT AS A LICENSE TO SIN, NOT TO THE TRADITION OF MEN, WE ALWAYS GO BACK TO SIN THAT WE SHOULD'VE CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST AND ARE NOW NEW CREATIONS FREE FROM THE WORKS OF THE FLESH (GALATIANS 5:16-21 PLS REFER TO YOUR KJV BIBLES, FRUITS OF THE FLESH TO NAME A FEW ;IDOLATRY, SORCERY,FORNICATION UNCLEANNES ETC.) WHO DOES AND PRACTICES SUCH WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD, YES OUR EYES ARE FIXED ON JESUS BUT MORE SUPPOSE YOUR FAITH,HEART AND SOUL, A BRIDE BEING PREPARED FOR THE GROOM,WE MAY NOT BE PERFECT AT LEAST WE ARE CLEAN.WE ARE TOLD TO BE SET APART FROM THE COMMON. IN THE BEGINNING, A SIMPLE INSTRUCTION CAUSED ADAM AND EVE TO SIN THAT CAUSED DEATH PENALTY AMONGST US,DISOBEDIENCE.NOT TO EAT THE FRUIT OF A PARTICULAR TREE.YET ATE.WE ARE RANSOMED WITH THE BLOOD OF JESUS! FOR CHRIST'S SAKE AND OURS,WALKING IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH THE WORKS OF THE FLESH SHOULD NOT MANIFEST IN US FOR WE ARE CO-HEIRS WITH CHRIST, FOR WE ARE CALLED NOT UNTO UNCLEANNESS BUT UNTO HOLINESS (1THESSALONIANS 4:7) BEING UNCLEAN IS BEING ASSOCIATED WITH THE TRADITION OF MEN, HOW ARE WE SET APART FROM THE COMMON THEN IF WE PRACTICE WHAT THEY PRACTICE? "CAN WE MAKE IT AN EXCUSE THAT IT'S NOT THEIR GOD WE WORSHIP BUT THE BIRTH OF JESUS WE CELEBRATE?" SERIOUSLY? FIRST WE DERIVED THE TRADITION FROM PAGANS, 2ND IT IS NOT OF GODS' FOR IT IS NOT WRITTEN 3RD WE ARE TOLD TO LEARN NOT THEIR WAY, SO, WE'L JUST HAVE THESAME TREE AS THEIRS, SAME MANNER OF CELEBRATION AS THEIRS, AND SAME TIME CELEBRATION AS THEIRS, SAME GREETING AS THEIRS, THAT WE KNOW EVERYTHING IS ASSOCIATED OF DEVIL ORIGIN, AND WE JUST CONVINCE OURSELVES THAT ITS JESUS WE CELEBRATE,LATER WE'LL JUSTIFY OURSELVES TO JESUS WHEN HE COMES AND ASKS I GUESS WE'LL JUST ANSWER, "OH, I DID IT TO CELEBRATE YOUR BIRTH.?" PRETEND THE XMAS TREE IS NOT THERE IT LOOKS JUST LIKE IT.?:-) PLS WAKE UP. READ COLLOSIANS 2:8, 2COR.6:13-17,HEBREW 10:26, MARK7:7-13,&THE REVELATION.PEACE AND LOVE.SEEK GOD MORE.
