Christmas


No_Santa

All over the world, Santa Claus is God to the children of the world (move the n to the end of Santa). Others say ‘Father Christmas’.

Parents purposely and deliberately lie to their children and tell them that they should fear Santa Claus because “he knows if you’ve been bad or good”. These same parents also lie to their children about the Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy. Then they wonder why their children become liars and don’t believe the Messiah is real later on in life. 

This is clearly a total abomination to Yahweh. You don’t have to look very far in the word of Yahweh to find out how much he loathes idolatry and lies. Yahweh is the only true Mighty One!

Our children look to us and believe every word we say. Don’t they deserve the truth? How abominable it is for a believer to teach their children to fear Santa Claus and in so doing creep an idol into the conscience of a child! 

Lies, lies everything is lies

The very foundation of the Christmas holiday is a lie. The Messiah was not born December 25th. He did not ask us to celebrate his birthday. He did not say to set up a tree in our house and decorate it and our houses with anything. Santa Claus does not exist. He doesn’t have reindeer that fly and he isn’t going to come down anyone’s chimney on December 25th and leave any gifts. Everything is a lie. Is Yahweh the originator of this holiday? Or is it the father of lies? Yahushua condemned the leaders of that generation for teaching lies:

John 8:44 – “You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

If satan is the father of lies, and this observance of Christmas is marked with all kinds of lies, who is the author of this ‘holiday?’ It seems to me that with all the lies and the pagan roots, satan’s fingerprints are all over this observance.

It’s high time that we forsake these lies and abide in the truth! Let’s forsake this foolish practice of yoking the Messiah (who said “I am the TRUTH“) together with lies, for He has nothing to do with lies.

Revelation 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 5 But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.

If we want to practice a lie, we need only celebrate Christmas and we will be doing just that. But if we want to abide in the truth, we will avoid all lies.

The book of Revelation also predicts a future time when those who hate Yahweh rejoice at the death of His two witnesses, for they will make merry and have a gift exchange:

Revelation 11:9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.10 And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make merry, and send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.

Sound familiar? I don’t know for sure, but it sounds a lot like one day the two witnesses will die and the whole world will rejoice that they can keep Christmas again. I think it’s time we make sure we are on the side of truth and righteousness.

BFAY = Blog for a year! Day 1


 

I love to blog. There I said it. I really enjoying letting go of some of my frustrations, joys and just plain silliness. Note I said “some” because if I let it all go, well, ya’ll would go too.

This new year starts a new journey for me. I am starting my degree classes, which I am stoked about! I will be at the computer, basically, all day. Why not throw in a blog post?! I like to write. See, I said it again. I plan on becoming obsessively obsessed with it actually. (Too bad I’m not kidding)

Here’s a list of stuff that I plan on doing this new year as well:

1. Buying a DSLR and becoming addicted to snapping AWESOME pictures.

2. Blogging everyday (Like I haven’t made that clear)

3. Knocking out some stuff on my Life List

4. Becoming Martha Stewart (I <3 Making stuff)

5. Wearing a bikini this summer! (or not feeling like a whale at the beach…that sounds better)

6. Starting a website and completely designing it myself

7. Read more books

8. Get my nails done once a month (A girl likes a little pampering)

9. When it warms up, run daily. (Sure, I like to run, but breathing ice, is not on my agenda)

10. Go out with the girls! (Once I find more than one girl to go out with, I’ll start this. <3 Jenna)

11. Dye my hair blonde! Just once this year!

12. Learn all I can consume about the Bible in one year

13. Live life….happily.

14. Laugh everyday.

 

 

I just had a thought… I am 20 some even years old and I act like I’m 40! Not saying 40 is bad or anything but I feel old! That is about to change! “You are as happy as you make yourself!”

Gift Card Holder Craft Idea


Materials -

One Mason Jar/lid

Glitter

Gift card

hot glue

embellishments

distilled water

1/2 tsp dish-washing liquid

ribbon

1. Take the lid and hot glue the card to it making sure you do not get glue on the magnetic strip. Allow it to dry

2. Hot glue any type of embellishment that is water soluble. Allow it to dry at least 15 minutes. I added ribbon to this one so it can float up, but the ribbon I bought was a little heavier and it wouldn’t float really well.

3. Add glitter and float-able embellishments.

4. Fill with water completely.

5. Add 1/2 teaspoon of dish washing liquid to keep the glitter from clumping together. (can also use glycerin)

6. Place the lid on the jar. It is okay if some water spills over. You do not want air bubbles.

7. Screw lid on tightly.

8. Turn jar over a few times to get the glitter and dish washing liquid mixed up. (the soap bubbles will go away)

9. Add your ribbon and decoration.

10. All done! Perfect and unique gift card giver!

(Do not leave the card in the water for longer than a week. This project is best done the night before the party)
