Well, as always, NORAD is "tracking Santa Claus as he travels around the world in his sleigh" today.
Whether it's "just make-believe" or not, billions of little children over the centuries have been led to BELIEVE the lie, and that's whats NOT okay. It's NOT okay for several reasons, including the fact that this lie deliberately "steals YHWH's thunder" - because this mythical being does NOT know "who's been naughty or nice!" YHWH does.
And since "God" is supposedly the "reason for the season," then WHERE IS HE? In most homes during Christmas time, how often is HE actually mentioned?
I'm sorry to be coming across like a "wet blanket" here, but truth is truth. Our world is falling apart at the seams, and most are blind to the fact that Scripture is unfolding before our very eyes! We NEED to stop playing around and get serious about God's Word!
Start reading it today, to see what HE actually said and expects of HIS people for, when Yeshua returns, he won't be displaying "love" and "tolerance". He's coming to take control of the world - the world MANKIND keeps attempting the destroy! (See Revelation 3:16.)
2 Thessalonians 1:8 ...when the Master Yeshua is revealed from heaven with his mighty angels 8 in a fiery flame. Then he will punish those who don’t know ELOHIM, that is, those who don’t listen to the Good News of Master Yeshua and obey it. 9 They will suffer the just penalty of eternal destruction, far away from the face of ADONAI and the glory of his might..
Let's take a look at just a FEW scriptures that show how ADONAI feels about those who deliberately lie:
Proverbs 12:22 Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who act faithfully are his delight.
Proverbs 19:9 A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who breathes out lies will perish.
Psalm 101:7 No one who practices deceit shall dwell in my house; no one who utters lies shall continue before my eyes.
Colossians 3:9-10 Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.
Luke 8:17 For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest, nor is anything secret that will not be known and come to light.
Ephesians 4:25 Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another.
John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
1 John 2:4 Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him,
Many Christians, instead of battling darkness, actually can stand for the forces we are told not to learn from (Yirmehayu 10:1-6, Mattithyahu 6:7, John 8:44, 2 Corinthians 4:4). In my research, many Christians aren't much different from other faiths (Buddhism, Islam, Zoroastrianism, Shintoism, Darwinism, etc.).ReplyDelete
You are absolutely correct, Kevin. Our world, for the most part, has no clue about God or His Word - and what's more, the don't want a clue....Delete
Judgment Day IS coming. And then it will be too late.
