Christmas and Easter are Celebrated by Christians as holy days, days to give gifts and bond in a deeper humanity. At Christmas pine trees are cut down and decorated, children are taken to a man in a red winter suit and asked if they have been good, wreaths are hung on doors and large legs of ham are served on the day. For lapsed Christians it is an opportunity to return to their childhood church to light candles, say the Lords prayer and sing Silent night.
In Melbourne it is Summer, full of balmy shopping nights, end of year drinks on roof-top bars and families take their children for the traditional walk down Bourke Street to admire the Myer Christmas window. This year the day may be cooler than hoped for, particularly for those that were planning BBQ’s and picnics however apart from Tasmania, we aren’t expecting snow.
Historically the early Christian’s rose out of Israel and Judah and followed Holy rituals ordained by Yahweh, ‘I am who I am’ , through Moses that include The Passover, The Day of Atonement, The Feast of Tabernacles and the Feast of Trumpets. These ancient rituals were designed to explain history, expectations and prophesy, rich in meaning as the secrets of God were related to humans. On the Sabbath (Saturday) it was ordained that everyone was to rest. In the Holy Communion the Messiah asks to be remembered at the conclusion of his visitation.
In the early days of the Church, God walked amongst the Hebrews in the desert in what began as a 40 day passage turned into a 40 year epic. Problems began when they built a Golden Calf as a sacred homage to Him. In Anger he left the camp and waited for their children to grow up, free from the baggage of the Egyptian occult. He told Moses that he would send someone ‘like him’ to lead them, at a future date.
The future scenarios played out over the generations When they were in a relationship with Him they were fed, safe and well but when they chased after foreign idols He threw them off His land and left them to their own devises.
‘where are their gods,
the rock they took refuge in,
38 the gods who ate the fat of their sacrifices
and drank the wine of their drink offerings?
Let them rise up to help you!
Let them give you shelter! (song of Moses)
In Bethlehem a child was born , a King from the Heavenly realm, that Moses was told to expect. From the moment of his birth he was hunted down. Jesus had as much hope of sitting on the temple throne as he would have asking the Pope to stop warming his seat and hand it over. The Kings of the world had made slaves and prisoners of the masses and had no intention of freeing them. The message of Jesus was that ‘they’ had been officially warned and the next visit would not be so friendly.
The Messianic movement that is spreading through-out the internet is linking Jews and Gentiles through a mutual respect of the ancient festivals that were founded by Moses and Jesus (Yeshua) . Both are removing the pagan and occult practises that have seeped into their religions and building a complete faith that links the Old and New Testament. The bible is read as a historical text not a fable. Old books, such as Enoch, that were removed from the Bible are revisited. Space missions, a spinning globe and evolution are traded in for a Flat Domed Earth populated by humans that were deliberate creations. For them, the book of Revelation has begun, the seals are being broken and its very likely that they will not be trading with an implanted chip in their hand.
Jesus turned and said to them,
“do not weep for me; weep for yourselves and for your children. 29 For the time will come when you will say, ‘Blessed are the childless women, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed!’ 30 Then
“‘they will say to the mountains, “Fall on us!”
and to the hills, “Cover us!”’[b]
31 For if people do these things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?”
During the Nazi realm religion was replaced with the occult. Germans as a greeting would say ‘God Bless’ , it was changed to “heil Hitler’,
That charming fat man who steals Jesus’s thunder and takes credit for Parents presents, has some dubious friends. Santa rewards the good kids with trinkets but the ‘elves’ are known in Europe as Krampers, they hit and kidnap bad kids.
