Regarding Christmas and Traditions - Honor His Birth with Gratitude...
The Lord says… Woe to All who ignore My Warning regarding the Holiday called Christmas
Worship with Gratitude My Birth, and give Thanks for My Death and Resurrection
October 7, 2004 – From The Lord, Our God and Savior – the Word of the Lord spoken to Timothy, for Timothy and his Wife, and for all those who have Ears to hear
Question asked by Timothy… Lord, what is your will for us regarding Christmas this year?
[The Lord answered] Timothy and Beloved, I tell you this… Let your hearts guide you, for on them have I written many things, and will continue to do so. Yes, even greater things will I reveal to you in the days to come. Then shall you be changed, from that which is perishable to that which is imperishable, your innermost desire realized. As for this holiday called Christmas, you must forsake it.
Yet of Messiah’s birth, you may indeed honor it. For it was the beginning of your salvation. For where there was once only darkness, behold, a great light has appeared!… Therefore blessed are those who worship with gratitude, giving thanks for the birth of My Son. Even more blessed are those who worship and give thanks for His death and resurrection.
Yet woe to those who associate the name of The Son of God with sin! Woe to those who honor pagan customs and revel in filthy traditions!… Woe to all who celebrate this holiday called Christmas, FOR YOU DO DISHONOR ME BY ALL YOU SAY AND DO! This season of so-called giving is detestable in My sight!…
ABOMINATION! IDOLATRY! Woe to all who ignore My warnings and break My Commandments! YOU ARE ALL SLAVES! You have made mammon your master, and materialism your close friend!
You have no love for God in your hearts; behold, from you My spirit is far removed! I tell you the truth, the day is coming and is already here, when the quality of each man’s work shall be tried, and the faith of every self-proclaimed believer shall be tested; for the Day of The Lord shall surely declare it!
Know you not, that to imitate The Messiah is righteousness?! My people, you were to walk in His ways! Yet you, who call of yourselves Christian, have made of Him a mockery! Thus you have brought shame upon yourselves!
How long shall you cleave to the harlot?! How long shall you walk in her ways?!… My people, come out of her, and touch no more the unclean thing! For I tell you the truth, to replace Christ, or to associate His name with sin, is to partake in that which is called antichrist! And to honor The Messiah with pagan customs and filthy traditions is to take the name of The Lord in vain!… DESECRATION!
I know many in this world celebrate this holiday in ignorance of its origins, Yet it remains an abomination in the eyes of The Most High God… Therefore, woe to those who willfully walk in ignorance!…
And woe, even three times woe, to those who knowingly place Their stamp of approval on these things, doing so in My name! Yours shall be a most bitter place, your discipline most severe!…
Woe to all who knowingly lead others into rebellion against The Lord, for the mouth of Sheol is open, and ready to receive you! Says The Lord.
Beloved ones, worship Me as I am and not as you would have Me be! Obey My voice! Depart from every form of evil and tear down every whitewashed wall of abomination!
Churches of men, stop twisting the Scriptures for the sake of evil gain; be separate from this world and those things which satan delights in!… Again, I say, be separate and come out from among them, and repent.
Return to Me, and in the day I stretch out My hand against the inhabitants of the earth, you shall surely be gone from this place.
So then, My beloved servants, share your gifts; lift up the poor and help the needy, give drink to the thirsty and feed the hungry, share My love and wash each other’s feet.
Yet no longer be a friend of this world, and no more walk in the ways of the churches of men, nor be like those around you, for they have not known Me.
Be set apart!… Rejoice in The Lord your God, and give thanks; honor The Son, in spirit and in truth, and walk closely in His example… Testify of Him, from His birth to His passion; Glorify His name in all the earth!… For this is the true gift.
Question asked by Timothy… Lord, what of the modern Christmas?
[The Lord answered] Though you ask of Me once again, Timothy, concerning this holiday which I hate, this season which the people in your land, even in many lands, mistakenly refer to as Christmas, I say to you, I will not press down upon you the many cups filled to overflowing with My indignation. For you haven’t the paper or strength of hand to write it. I am The Lord.
