Relating The Truth To All Who Are Sent

Secular Holidays Pt. 6 Christmas Ep. 2

Secular Holidays Pt. 6
Christmas Ep. 2

 

We covered a lot of stuff last week that had to do with the evil of this holiday. We learned that red and green were pagan. Christmas trees and wreaths represented male and female genitalia. Christmas carols and songs were pagan in origin. Also that the Catholic church stole christmas from the pagan winter solstice tradition. We covered the fact that Christmas was almost forgotten about in the 13th century and that in the US it was actually illegal to celebrate when the country was founded.

Today, we are going to strictly focus in on two perspectives, the traditions of Christmas day, Santa Claus, Christmas presents and stockings, Krampus, chestnuts and reindeers. Also we are going to look at a verse that many people overlook and do not heed. Matt. 18:6 – But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Mk. 9:42 – And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea. Lk. 17:2 – It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.

To begin with, the main feature of Christmas that all kids look forward to is Santa Claus. Not only is he the gift deliver of this satanic holiday but he is also probably the first satanic lie that most parents tell their children. What we are going to do is show the proof that Santa is nothing but Satan in disguise. How are we going to do that? Well, many know that Lucifer is the father of lies and loves to counterfeit the works of YeHoVaH, so lets see how counterfeit Santa is. The problem with this holiday besides the paganism is the damage it causes to children. They come to rely on Santa and worship him. The want to sit on his lap and learn that his gifts are better than Yeshua’s.

Now, that’s the likenesses between Yeshua and Santa Claus. Now we see that Santa Claus is an obvious counterfeit. However, to be true we need to see the differences between the two as well and surprisingly enough there aren’t that many differences at all. So lets look at them real quick.

Yeshua

  • Enters your house through the light
  • You can see Him coming
  • Love is His gift
  • Forgiveness is what He offers

Santa

  • Enters your house in the darkness
  • You can see him coming through fire of the fireplace
  • Presents are his gift
  • He never forgives

Okay so the main differences between Yeshua and Santa are that of light and darkness, forgiveness and grudges. So that concludes our study of the counterfeit of Satan in his use of Santa. We now cover his more evil twin that helps counterfeit YeHoVaH. How is that you ask? Well it’s simple, people know there is Jesus(Yeshua) and Satan. As we just learned, Santa is Yeshua’s counterfeit and Krampus is Satan’s counterfeit in Lucifer’s very own good and evil tale.

Krampus is the dark companion of St. Nicholas, the traditional European winter gift-bringer who rewards good children each year on December 6. The kindly old Saint leaves the task of punishing bad children to a hell-bound counterpart The Horned Devil, also known as Krampus, who is known by many names across the continent — Knecht Ruprecht, Certa, Perchten, Black Peter, Schmutzli, Pelznickel, Klaubauf, and Krampus. Usually seen as a classic devil with horns, cloven hooves and monstrous tongue, but can also be spotted as a sinister gentleman dressed in black, or a hairy man-beast. Krampus punishes the naughty children, swatting them with switches and rusty chains before dragging them, in baskets, to a fiery place below.

Krampus is celebrated on Krampusnacht, which takes place on the eve of St. Nicholas’ Day. In Austria, Northern Italy and other parts of Europe, party-goers masquerade as devils, wild-men, and witches to participate in Krampuslauf (Krampus Run). Intoxicated and bearing torches, costumed devils caper and carouse through the streets terrifying child and adult alike. Krampusnacht is increasingly being celebrated in other parts of Europe such as Finland and France, as well as in many American cities.

The European practice of mummery during the winter solstice season can be traced back tens of thousands of years. Villagers across the continent dress up as animals, wild-men and mythic figures to parade and perform humorous plays. This ancient guising and masking tradition continues to this day as the primary source for our modern Halloween with its costumes, trick-or-treat, and pagan symbolism. Among the most common figures in these folk rituals were Old Man Winter and the horned Goat-Man — archetypes now found in the forms of Saint Nick/Santa Claus, and the Devil (‘Old Nick’), aka Krampus.

2000 BCE Enkidu appears in the Epic of Gilgamesh, the earliest known appearance of a ‘Wild Man’ in literature.

600 BCE In the book of Daniel in the Old Testament, King Nebuchadnezzar is punished by God for his pride when he is turned into a hairy beast.

217 BCE Saturnalia is introduced as a winter celebration in Rome, marked by gift giving, wild parties, and a reversal of the normal social roles of slave and master.

4th Century CE Due to Roman influence, many Germanic tribes, such as the Goths and Vandals, convert to Christianity; their pagan traditions survive in small villages in the Alps where the Church cannot penetrate.

1250 CE King’s Mirror, a Norwegian text, features a Wild Man character who is described as being covered in hair.

17th Century CE ‘Knecht Rupert’ appears as a figure in a Nuremberg Christmas procession.

1810 CE The Brothers Grimm began publishing stories of Germanic folktales, marking a resurgence in Germanic pagan folklore.

Early 19th Century CE Holiday postcards from Austria, Germany, and other parts of Europe feature holiday greetings Krampus and other companions of St. Nicholas.

Early 19th Century CE Germanic and Dutch immigrants to the US popularize ‘Pelznickel’ traditions in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and as far west as Indiana.

2004 CE Blab! Magazine curator Monte Beauchamp publishes Devil In Design, a collection of vintage Krampus postcards from the turn of the 19th century. This book marks an increase in Krampus’ popularity in the English speaking world.

2004 CE An Adult Swim show The Venture Brothers features Krampus during a Christmas special.

2007 CE The American television show Supernatural features an evil Krampus character.

2009 CE American satirist Stephen Colbert is visited by Krampus on his television show The Colbert Report.

2013 CE Krampus comes to the popular American television show Grimm.

2013 CE Krampus featured on the popular animated television show American Dad.

So we see that throughout the times Krampus has had and been given recognition in the limelight. Even unto the television shows that many people watch causing them to gain knowledge and even reverence for this demonic entity. The Issue with the modern society is that they have become numb to the evil of this world and now easily takes it as sociably acceptable.

We leave the talking about Krampus and now we go back to talk about Santa. Now Santa is said to visit all the houses of the world in one single night. It is told that he does this by using flying reindeer and a magickal sled as a form of transportation. So lets cover his reindeer, what they represent and what their origin is.

“Although reindeer have been extinct in the British Isles since the 12th Century, the Horned God continued to be commemorated. Ceremonies using the reindeer antlers were often performed at Yuletide, during the twelve days of Christmas.” “Santa’s reindeer evolved from the Celtic Horned God.  Eight reindeer pull Santa’s sleigh, representative of the eight solar sabbats. From their late Autumn dramatic rutting displays, stags represented strength, sexuality and fertility.” “The Celtic god Cernunnos (Herne, ‘the horned one’) bears the antlers of a deer. Santa Claus who evokes the memory of the northern gods Odin and Thor, is transported in a sleigh drawn by reindeer.” “Reindeer are horned animals representing the “horned-god” or the “stag-god” of pagan religion! Santa’s traditional number of reindeer in his team is eight (8); in Satanic gematria, eight is the number of “new beginnings”, or the cycle of reincarnation.” “The use of reindeers: are leftover symbols of the horned god, presented in a palatable form.  St. Nick is one of the few magical beings of a non-angelic species accepted by Christians and promoted to their children. Santa is a micro version of Jehovah, complete with the white beard, who doles out rewards to the faithful – toys instead of paradise – and punishment to the wicked – a coal in your stocking rather than a lake of fire.”

Even the cute cuddly reindeers are a representation of evil and that is sad. Paganism has really infiltrated this world completely. For someone not knowledgeable of YeHoVaH and Yeshua, it would seem that Paganism would be this worlds main religion and that is sad. Now we move onto the next segment of this day and that the elves. However, I will have to leave you hanging until next week. Do we have any questions?
