Always remember: Embellished made-up stories are still lies!
Sad to say, I know most of the world is getting ready to do the made up Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Chanukah and then Christmas.
I get so many emails about these holidays to buy, buy, buy.
Stores can’t be setup fast enough for these days to make money. Another year goes by and a new generation of the youth is deceived.
“Tis the season to be pagan” is all around us!
I am reminded always to inform you to beware of the false image of love, false emotions, loneliness, depression, financial drain, suicide.
Be aware of the artificial, false festival lights and music they put up.
Satan really sets the stage for you.
Beware if you feel or hear a voice telling you to separate yourself from the congregation, go off on your own and read or whatever.
Prov.11  Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.
You think I made up the whole “going into debt scenario”?
Well here is a recent article from: https://www.cnbc.com/2017/11/17/shoppers-are-still-paying-off-debt-from-2016-holidays.html
An alarming number of shoppers are still paying off debt from last Christmas - 2016
As the holiday season approaches, the pressure to spend spikes
This year, gift-buying Americans plan to spend $660 on average.
That's according to new data from NerdWallet's 2017 Consumer Holiday Shopping Report, which analyzed spending and behavior trends of more than 2,000 Americans aged 18 and over.
And holiday-induced debt is a growing problem. Although survey respondents say they plan to spend roughly the same amount as they spent last year, 24 percent of shoppers say they overspent in 2016, while 27 percent admit to not making a budget at all.
Even a budget is only a good start.
"There's this myth that planning ahead and budgeting always ensures you don't overspend. But in reality, creating and even sticking to a budget won't make you immune to holiday debt," Courtney Jespersen, a consumer savings expert at NerdWallet, says in the survey. "It's so important to set a realistic ceiling for your spending."
During the 2016 season, boomers proved most likely to take on debt to finance their purchases, with 63 percent of respondents copping to the habit. Other generations took on debt as well, including 58 percent of Gen-Xers and 40 percent of millennials.
What's alarming about this pattern is that many Americans are still carrying last year's debt as they head into yet another holiday season.
Millennials are the worst culprits here: 24 percent still haven't paid off credit card debt incurred during the 2016 shopping season, while 16 percent of Gen-Xers haven't and only 8 percent of boomers haven't.
How long did you take to pay off credit card debt from the 2016 holiday shopping season?
This is particularly worrisome for millennials because many are still building credit, which allows you to make larger purchases in the future, such as a car or a house.
Debt can also be emotionally heavy and a source of stress in your relationships.

Merry Xmas? Not so much…
The new moon is coming again soon - the ninth month of God called Chislev כִסְלֵו
We will let you know which day it will occur
Zech.7  And it came to pass in the fourth year of king Darius, that the word of Yehovah came unto Zechariah in the fourth day of the ninth month, even in Chisleu
The ninth month, winter time – Chislev – כִסְלֵו, part of the calendar of God
Here are some verses of much evil that was done by people that would not hear “The Word of Yehovah” sayings…
1Chr.27  Now the children of Israel after their number, to wit, the chief fathers and captains of thousands and hundreds, and their officers that served the king in any matter of the courses, which came in and went out month by month throughout all the months of the year, of every course were twenty and four thousand.
 The ninth captain for the ninth month was Abiezer the Anetothite, of the Benjamites: and in his course were twenty and four thousand.
Ezra.10  Then all the men of Judah and Benjamin gathered themselves together unto Jerusalem within three days. It was the ninth month, on the twentieth day of the month; and all the people sat in the street of the house of God, trembling because of this matter, and for the great rain.  And Ezra the priest stood up, and said unto them, Ye have transgressed, and have taken strange wives, to increase the trespass of Israel.
Neh.1  The words of Nehemiah the son of Hachaliah. And it came to pass in
the month Chisleu, in the twentieth year,
as I was in Shushan the palace,
 That Hanani, one of my brethren, came, he and certain men of Judah; and I asked them concerning the Jews that had escaped, which were left of the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem.  And they said unto me, The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach: the wall of Jerusalem also is broken down, and the gates thereof are burned with fire.
Jer.36  And it came to pass in the
fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of
Judah, that this Word came unto Jeremiah from Yehovah, saying,
 Take thee a roll of a book, and write therein all the words that I have spoken unto thee against Israel, and against Judah, and against all the nations, from the day I spake unto thee, from the days of Josiah, even unto this day.
It may be that the house of Judah will hear all the evil which I purpose to do
unto them; that they may return every man from his evil way; that I may forgive
their iniquity and their sin.
 Then Jeremiah called Baruch the son of Neriah: and Baruch wrote from the mouth of Jeremiah all the words of Yehovah, which he had spoken unto him, upon a roll of a book.
 And Jeremiah commanded Baruch, saying, I am shut up; I cannot go into the house of Yehovah:
 Therefore go thou, and read in the roll, which thou hast written from my mouth, the words of Yehovah in the ears of the people in Yehovah's house upon the fasting day: and also thou shalt read them in the ears of all Judah that come out of their cities.
 It may be they will present their supplication before Yehovah, and will return every one from his evil way: for great is the anger and the fury that Yehovah hath pronounced against this people.
 And Baruch the son of Neriah did according to all that Jeremiah the prophet commanded him, reading in the book the words of Yehovah in Yehovah's house.
 And it came to pass in the fifth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, in the ninth month, that they proclaimed a fast before Yehovah to all the people in Jerusalem, and to all the people that came from the cities of Judah unto Jerusalem.
 Then read Baruch in the book the words of Jeremiah in the house of Yehovah, in the chamber of Gemariah the son of Shaphan the scribe, in the higher court, at the entry of the new gate of Yehovah's house, in the ears of all the people.
 When Michaiah the son of Gemariah, the son of Shaphan, had heard out of the book all the words of Yehovah,
 Then he went down into the king's house, into the scribe's chamber: and, lo, all the princes sat there, even Elishama the scribe, and Delaiah the son of Shemaiah, and Elnathan the son of Achbor, and Gemariah the son of Shaphan, and Zedekiah the son of Hananiah, and all the princes.
 Then Michaiah declared unto them all the words that he had heard, when Baruch read the book in the ears of the people.
 Therefore all the princes sent Jehudi the son of Nethaniah, the son of Shelemiah, the son of Cushi, unto Baruch, saying, Take in thine hand the roll wherein thou hast read in the ears of the people, and come. So Baruch the son of Neriah took the roll in his hand, and came unto them.
 And they said unto him, Sit down now, and read it in our ears. So Baruch read it in their ears.
 Now it came to pass, when they had heard all the words, they were afraid both one and other, and said unto Baruch, We will surely tell the king of all these words.
 And they asked Baruch, saying, Tell us now, How didst thou write all these words at his mouth?
 Then Baruch answered them, He pronounced all these words unto me with his mouth, and I wrote them with ink in the book.
 Then said the princes unto Baruch, Go, hide thee, thou and Jeremiah; and let no man know where ye be.
 And they went in to the king into the court, but they laid up the roll in the chamber of Elishama the scribe, and told all the words in the ears of the king.
 So the king sent Jehudi to fetch the roll: and he took it out of Elishama the scribe's chamber. And Jehudi read it in the ears of the king, and in the ears of all the princes which stood beside the king.
 Now the king sat in the winterhouse in the ninth month: and there was a fire on the hearth burning before him.
 And it came to pass, that when Jehudi had read three or four leaves, he cut it with the penknife, and cast it into the fire that was on the hearth, until all the roll was consumed in the fire that was on the hearth.
 Yet they were not afraid, nor rent their garments, neither the king, nor any of his servants that heard all these words.
 Nevertheless Elnathan and Delaiah and Gemariah had made intercession to the king that he would not burn the roll: but he would not hear them.
 But the king commanded Jerahmeel the son of Hammelech, and Seraiah the son of Azriel, and Shelemiah the son of Abdeel, to take Baruch the scribe and Jeremiah the prophet: but Yehovah hid them.
Then the word of Yehovah
came to Jeremiah, after that the king had burned the roll, and the
words which Baruch wrote at the mouth of Jeremiah, saying,
 Take thee again another roll, and write in it all the former words that were in the first roll, which Jehoiakim the king of Judah hath burned.
 And thou shalt say to Jehoiakim the king of Judah, Thus saith Yehovah; Thou hast burned this roll, saying, Why hast thou written therein, saying, The king of Babylon shall certainly come and destroy this land, and shall cause to cease from thence man and beast?
 Therefore thus saith Yehovah of Jehoiakim king of Judah; He shall have none to sit upon the throne of David: and his dead body shall be cast out in the day to the heat, and in the night to the frost.
 And I will punish him and his seed and his servants for their iniquity; and I will bring upon them, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and upon the men of Judah, all the evil that I have pronounced against them; but they hearkened not.
 Then took Jeremiah another roll, and gave it to Baruch the scribe, the son of Neriah; who wrote therein from the mouth of Jeremiah all the words of the book which Jehoiakim king of Judah had burned in the fire: and there were added besides unto them many like words.
Hag.2  In the four and twentieth
day of the ninth month, in the second
year of Darius, came the word of Yehovah
by Haggai the prophet, saying,  Thus saith Yehovah of hosts;
Ask now the priests concerning the law, saying,
 If one bear holy flesh in the skirt of his garment, and with his skirt do touch bread, or pottage, or wine, or oil, or any meat, shall it be holy? And the priests answered and said, No.
 Then said Haggai, If one that is unclean by a dead body touch any of these, shall it be unclean? And the priests answered and said, It shall be unclean.
 Then answered Haggai, and said, So is this people, and so is this nation before me, saith Yehovah; and so is every work of their hands; and that which they offer there is unclean.
 And now, I pray you, consider from this day and upward, from before a stone was laid upon a stone in the temple of Yehovah:
 Since those days were, when one came to an heap of twenty measures, there were but ten: when one came to the pressfat for to draw out fifty vessels out of the press, there were but twenty.
 I smote you with blasting and with mildew and with hail in all the labours of your hands; yet ye turned not to me, saith Yehovah.
 Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of Yehovah's temple was laid, consider it.
 Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you.
 And again the word of Yehovah came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying,
 Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth;
 And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother.
 In that day, saith Yehovah of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith Yehovah, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith Yehovah of hosts.
Zech.7  And it came to pass in the
fourth year of king Darius, that the word of Yehovah
came unto Zechariah in the fourth day of the ninth
month, even in Chisleu;  When they
had sent unto the house of God Sherezer and Regem-melech, and their men, to pray before Yehovah,
 And to speak unto the priests which were in the house of Yehovah of hosts, and to the prophets, saying, Should I weep in the fifth month, separating myself, as I have done these so many years?
 Then came the word of Yehovah of hosts unto me, saying,
 Speak unto all the people of the land, and to the priests, saying, When ye fasted and mourned in the fifth and seventh month, even those seventy years, did ye at all fast unto me, even to me?
 And when ye did eat, and when ye did drink, did not ye eat for yourselves, and drink for yourselves?
 Should ye not hear the words which Yehovah hath cried by the former prophets, when Jerusalem was inhabited and in prosperity, and the cities thereof round about her, when men inhabited the south and the plain?
 And the
word of Yehovah came unto Zechariah, saying,
 Thus speaketh Yehovah of hosts, saying, Execute true judgment, and shew mercy and compassions every man to his brother:
 And oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the stranger, nor the poor; and let none of you imagine evil against his brother in your heart.
 But they refused to hearken, and
pulled away the shoulder, and stopped their ears, that
they should not hear.
 Yea, they made their hearts as an adamant stone, lest they should hear the law, and the words which Yehovah of hosts hath sent in his spirit by the former prophets: therefore came a great wrath from Yehovah of hosts.
 Therefore it is come to pass, that as he cried, and they would not hear; so they cried, and I would not hear, saith Yehovah of hosts: But I scattered them with a whirlwind among all the nations whom they knew not. Thus the land was desolate after them, that no man passed through nor returned: for they laid the pleasant land desolate.
Trouble always comes by breaking God’s Law and Order
The law from Genesis
And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the
days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king
of the Philistines unto Gerar.
 And Yehovah appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of:
 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father; And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;
Because that Abraham obeyed and kept:
It’s the LAW

Jer.32 …they obeyed not thy voice, neither walked in thy law; they have done nothing of all that thou commandedst them to do: therefore thou hast caused all this evil to come upon them:
Dan.9 Yea, all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, because we have sinned against him.
Pss.1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.  But his delight is in the law of Yehovah; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
Pss.78 They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law;
Pss.105 And he brought forth his people with joy, and his chosen with gladness: And gave them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the labour of the people;  That they might observe his statutes, and keep his laws. Praise ye Yehovah.
Isa.42 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law. Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not Yehovah, he against whom we have sinned? for they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient unto his law.
Dan.9 Neither have we obeyed the voice of Yehovah our God, to walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets.
Matt.5 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
Luke.16 The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it. And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.
 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.
 To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Messiah,) that I might gain them that are without law.
1Cor.14 In the law it is written, With men of other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the Lord. Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.
 Messiah hath redeemed us from the curse of the law (which is the judgments, the punishments), being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
 Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law,(of a schoolmaster, the Levitical system, animal sacrifices), do ye not hear the law?
