Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory, from the 1500’s
Today is Dec. 15, 2012
Middle English decembre
Old French decembre
Latin december "tenth month"
Latin decem "ten" + -ber (adj. suffix)
Now, God’s truth
Yehovah has His own calendar
Happy New Moon
We are now in the tenth month, which is the month Tebeth
Esth.2 So Esther was taken unto king Ahasuerus into his house royal in the tenth month, which is the month Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign.
(Part of Dec. 2012 & Jan. 2013)
"Tis the season to be pagan", Beware!
Beware of the:
False image of Love
False feelings and emotions
These pagan feasts bring on loneliness, depression, suicide, murder, and oh yes, debt.
I said last week it is time again to focusing on two fictitious holidays that almost everyone participates in one way or another that comes in December, Christmas and Chanukah.
Remember John said:
1 John 2  I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
Rev. 21  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
Just for the record:
Kwanzaa - Ron Karenga (aka Dr. Maulana Ron Karenga) invented the seven-day feast, Dec. 26-Jan. 1, in 1966, branding it a black alternative to Christmas.
The idea was to celebrate the end of what he considered the Christmas-season exploitation of African Americans.
Another made up feast to kill each other over
First, a little news:
20 Children among 28 dead In Newtown, Conn. Elementary School Massacre
20 year old Lanza is believed to have suffered from a possible personality disorder
Knife-wielding man injures 22 children in China
War on Christmas
Push to ban guns
I explained Chanukah last week
Satan, the author of lies – confusion
Once Upon A Time, Christmas Was Banned in 1659 in America

Then we will look at the study:
What was a possible time Yeshua / Jesus may have been born?
Not Dec. 25
Dec. 25 is a Gregorian date
There was no Pope Gregory at Yeshua’s time
The following is a quote from the Encyclopedia Brittanica, Volume 11 ; page 390.
"During the later periods of Roman history, sun worship gained in importance and ultimately led to what has been called a 'solar monotheism.'
Nearly all the gods of the period were possessed of Solar qualities, and both Christ and Mithra acquired the same traits.
The feast of Sol and Victus (open unconquered Sun) on December 25th was celebrated with great joy, and eventually this date was taken over by the so called Christians as Christmas, the birthday of Christ.
The so-called Christians were trying to get more converts So they adapted a pagan holiday to their worship to appease the pagans in 336 AD.
The Encyclopaedia Britannica reports that "The traditional customs connected with Christmas have developed from several sources as a result of the coincidence of the celebration of the birth of Christ with the pagan agricultural and solar observations at midwinter.
In the Roman world the Saturnalia (worship of Saturn – meaning plenty) (December 17) was a time of merrymaking and exchange of gifts. December 25 was also regarded as the birth date of the Iranian mystery god Mithra, the Sun of Righteousness."
Colliers Encyclopedia agrees. Quote: "After the triumph of Constantine, the church at Rome assigned December 25 as the date for the celebration of the feast, possibly about A.D. 320 or 353.
By the end of the fourth century the whole so-called Christian world was celebrating Christmas on that day, with the exception of the Eastern churches, where it was celebrated on January 6.
The choice of December 25 was probably influenced by the fact that on this day the Romans celebrated the Mithraic feast of the Sun-god (natalis solis invicti), and that the Saturnalia also came at this time."
Both encyclopedias plainly reveal that the source of the celebration of December 25 is the birthday of Mithra, the pagan sun god.
Sun worshippers since the time of Babel recognized this time of year in honor of their gods.
1st century believers, taught personally by Christ, did not celebrate His birthday, but His resurrection.
2nd century theologians condemned the thought.
Only after severe persecution, destruction and inaccessibility of biblical scripture and the blending of pagan doctrine with the worship of God was the Mithraic celebration of December 25th proclaimed to be "Christian" in nature.
These facts are well documented.
They can be found in any encyclopedia. There is no way to "Christianize" the birthday of the sun god.
Anyone with access to a computer or an encyclopedia can know better if they just seek it out.
A word of warning to you;
Tensions are running wild
Beware of the:
False images of love and hate
More and more financial strain on family - debt
The problem of the whole matter - Satan
 Therefore it is no great thing if Satan’s ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
"Satan, the serpent, in the midst of the garden (the world, the body)"
"An enemy amongst us"
Satan knows he has deceived most people without the true Messiah, so he transforms himself into an angel of light to keep them spiritually sedated.
Another gospel, another Jesus (Yeshua) or another spirit is not a new thing.
Satan always finds his followers
A new doctrine started right in the Kingdom of Heaven.
Satan brought this doctrine down to earth and we live the rest of the story.
Gen.3  Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which Yehovah God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
Rev.12 [9 ] And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan , which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Rev.20 [2 ] And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan , and bound him a thousand years,
Satan in the congregation in heaven
Isa.14[ 12] How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer , son of the morning!
how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:[ 14 ] I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High .
[15 ] Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
Luke.10[ 18] And he said unto them, I ( Jesus / Yeshua ) beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
Rev.12  And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon , having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven , and did cast them to the earth:
 And there was war
in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon ; and the dragon fought and
 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Ezek. 28  Moreover the word of Yehovah came unto me, saying,[12 ] Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith Yehovah GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God ; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub , from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground , I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all tem that behold thee. All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.
Satan seems like a friend
Ps. 41:9: Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.
John 6:71 He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him,
being one of the twelve.
2 Cor. 11  Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me.[ 2] For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Messiah / Christ. But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Messiah / Christ.
 For if he that cometh preacheth another Yeshua / Jesus , whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit , which ye have not received, or another gospel , which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him. (Why are you ready to receive this? )
 For such are false apostles , deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Messiah / Christ .[14 ] And no marvel ; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.  Therefore it is no great thing if his (Satan's) ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness ; whose end shall be according to their works.
Rom.16[ 17] Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them . For they that are such serve not our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, but their own belly; and by "good words" and "fair speeches" deceive the hearts of the simple.
Beware of Satan's doctrines
Gal.1[ 6] I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Messiah unto another gospel:
[7 ] Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Messiah.
 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
Matt.15[ 9] But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
Matt.16[ 12] Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
Eph. 4[ 14] That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
Col. 2[ 22] Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?
1Tim. 1[ 3] As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine , Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.
1Tim. 4[ 1] Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2 Tim. 4 I charge thee therefore before
God, and Yehovah Yeshua the Messiah, who shall judge the quick and the dead at
his appearing and his kingdom;
 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;[4 ] And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
Heb. 13  Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines
2 John 1 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine (but another doctrine), receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
Rev. 2 [ 14] But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.[15 ] So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
False Messiahs and false prophets amongst us
Matt.24  And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
 For there shall arise false Messiahs / Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Mark.13  For false Messiahs / Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
Matt.7  Beware of false prophets , which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Luke.6  Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
2 Pet. 2:  But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying Yehovah that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.[2 ] And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with "feigned words" make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
1John 4  Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the
spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone
out into the world. [2 ] Hereby
know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Yeshua the Messiah is
come in the flesh is of God:
 And every spirit that confesseth not that Yeshua is the Messiah / Yeshua the Messiah is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist , whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
Acts 20  Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God , which He, Yeshua hath purchased with His own blood.[29 ] For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you , not sparing the flock.[ 30] Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.
Satan is always around
1 Thes. 2  Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us
Zech. 3  And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of Yehovah, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.
Mark 1  And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.
Mark 4  And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.
Luke 13  And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?
Luke 22  And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:  But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren
Acts 5  But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?
1 Cor. 7  Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency
2 Cor. 2 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
Are there strange gods among you?
(Strange gods are still in
the garden - the world - the body)
Perils among false brethren
a man's foes shall be they of his own household
2Cor.11 [26 ] In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;
Gal.2  And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Messiah Yeshua, that they might bring us into bondage:  To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.
2Cor.7 [5 ] For, when we were come into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we were troubled on every side; without were fightings, within were fears .
Matt.10 [ 32] Whosoever therefore shall
confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in
 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.
 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
1Chr.21  And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.
Misc. notes for you to read later
How does one begin to explain the very important connection between Mithraism and the paganizing of the true worship of God and His only begotten Son?
To begin with, Mithras was the sun god of the Persians and subsequent empires including the Roman Empire through the 4th century.
During the 4th century, Mithras "mysteriously" vanished and Roman "Christianity" began, a false Christianity not like that of the 1st century; but, a polluted, corrupt "Christianity" lacking few Mithraic rituals.
Mithras was invoked in the inscriptions of the Biblical Artaxerxes, king of Babylon: making Mithras one of the pagan gods that God had warned His chosen people to beware of.
Christ had come and defeated Satan by personally paying repentant man’s death penalty for the transgression of God’s laws - the penalty He, Himself, had established at the time of creation.
And yet, in the 4th century, by way of a Satanic "if you can’t beat them join them" deception, a blend of the worship of God and the worship of pagan gods was officially proclaimed as "Christianity" by the Roman Empire.
As the gospel spread throughout the nations; and the persecution of true believers proved to be ineffective, Satan, the author of confusion, began his final assault on the truth - the truth that "sin is the transgression of the law" and that the penalty is death.
The celebrations including December 25th in honor of the rebirth of Mithras at the winter solstice and Easter , the solar observance of the spring equinox, attempted to void the 1st commandment in the name of "Christianity".
The graven images of the pagan deities, given "Christian" titles, attempted to void the 2nd commandment.
And the Sunday observance of "Deis Solis", the day of the sun attempted to void the 4th commandment.
Attempted only, for Christ had proclaimed "till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law."
The official recognition of sun worship in the Roman Empire began during the time of Aurelian when he instituted the cult of "Sol invictus".
The cult of Sol Invictus and that of Mithra are virtually the same.
In the year 307 A.D. Emperor Diocletian, a sun worshipper, was involved in the dedication of a temple to Mithra and was responsible for the burning of scripture which made it possible for later emperors to formulate their own version of "Christianity."
After the rein of Diocletian, Emperor Constantine, while claiming to be a Christian maintained the title "Pontifus Maximus" the high priest of paganism. His coins were inscribed: "SOL INVICTO COMITI" (COMMITTED TO THE INVINCIBLE SUN).
During his reign pagan sun worship was blended with the worship of the Creator, and officially entitled "Christianity."
Cybele the Phrygian goddess, known to her followers as "the mother of god", was closely related to the worship of Mithra
As Mithraism was a man’s religion, the worship of Cybele was practiced by the women. The priests of Mithra were known as "Fathers" and the Priestesses of Cybele as "Mothers."
After baptism into the Mysteries of Mithra, the initiate was marked on the forehead.
The sign of the cross formed by the elliptic and the celestial equator was one of the signs of Mithra.
Sunday (Deis Solis), the day of the sun, was considered by Mithraist a sacred day of rest.
December 25th was celebrated as the birth of the sun, given birth by the "Queen of Heaven" - "Mother of god."
The Mithraists celebrated a mithraic love feast.
This feast consisted of loaves of bread decorated with crosses with wine over which the priest pronounced a mystic formula.
Mithra was considered mediator between god and man.
Mithraists also believed in eternal life in heaven and in the torture of the wicked after death.
Many of these beliefs and rituals were exclusive to Mithraism and up until the fourth century were not a part of the Christian faith.
Only those in accordance with the commandments of God could possibly be in honor of Christ.
In the 4th century, through confusion and manipulation, rituals of "sun worship" were pronounced, by the followers of Satan to be "Christian" in nature.
There is no Biblical support for the inclusion of Mithraic ritual, which is the worship of Satan, in the worship of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Creator of heaven and earth.
It is a Satanic scheme to disguise the transgression of God’s laws under the title of "Christianity".
This same system, characterized by the shrouding of truth in secrecy and the manipulation of the truth in order to achieve its ends, has been working for two millennia to combine paganism with Christianity.
