When the dispensation of Abraham was held supreme, prior to God coming with skin on, the Jews submitted to the ceremonial law of not keeping company with those of another nation; because when Jews mingled with the idolatrous nations, it corrupted them and God’s message through them. But when Yeshua (Jesus) came, a new dispensation was instituted where Yeshua crucified in His flesh the enmity caused by the law that He might create in Himself One New Man – Jew and Gentile – in a single body by means of the cross. (Ephesians 2:15-16).
The cross was the natural, objective manifestation where Yeshua (perfectly naturally and supernaturally) began the process of reconciliation of Jew and Gentile into one body. On earth, we have yet to see the enmity (or feud) end between Jews and Gentiles; but we have entered the dispensation of the fullness of time where it will occur.
Did you know that in the second century when the young Christian Church gradually included a growing number of Gentiles with no prior contact with “The Way,” they increasingly dependent on their mother soil? A distinct demarcation line had to be firmly drawn between right and wrong Christianity, as well as between Christianity and paganism. Christians had to go back to how the gospel was preached to them in the beginning, just as Yeshua and Paul preached. And it happens to coincide with the points Christians share with Jews: biblical monotheism, ethics, and rejection of idolatry. Today, it seems that clear-cut line has become blurred once again. Many times the world is having a difficult time distinguishing between those who are Christian and those who are not.
Practicing Jews still keep the essential commandments decreed in Acts 15; therefore, it remains for Gentile believers to restore these ancient ruins long since devastated in our own lives. The Essential Commandments for All Believers actually demonstrate a person’s rejection of idolatry; hence, this is connected to the Golden Calf of Christmas. Please see the below exchange about Christmas being a crux for the One New Man in the Messiah coming together.
The Essential Commandments for All Believers are listed three times in Scripture: Acts 15:19-20; Acts 15:28-29; Acts 21:25. When something is repeated twice in Scripture, God is emphasizing the matter. That the Essential Commandments for All Believers are listed three times speaks about what is real, essential, perfect, substantial, complete and divine. Not only do the Essential Commandments for All Believers prohibit things that had or have connections with pagan customs, traditions and idols; but in reality they are abstinence requirements, which binds God’s people in holy matrimony to our Heavenly Bridegroom. It’s noteworthy that these abstinence requirements preserving the sanctity of holy matrimony were the ONLY burdens the Holy Spirit led the Jerusalem Council to specifically place of the nations (Gentiles believers). This information is so important right now that I was lead to publish all of chapter 4 from the book “SANTA-TIZING: What’s wrong with Christmas and how to clean it up” on a blog => AGE-OLD FOUNDATION – http://wp.me/p158HG-AT
If you’d like to see a real-life example of how the Christian Church’s compromise with mixed celebrations prohibit the joining of the One New Man together, please see the conversation below.

ACTUAL FB POST FROM A JEWISH PERSON: “I just wanna leave Babylon and move to Israel. Christmas is always such a painful time of year when people who claim to be on fire bring Christmas trees into their homes and worship YHWH in ways He condemns in His Word. I tell people over and over and no one cares. They love their traditions more than what He says about it. I just want to cry every day. Jews will not accept their Jewish Messiah because Christians celebrate His birthday on the same day as all the pagan gods. I just want to get away from all pagans who claim to be Christians and who are Spirit-filled. How can you not keep the most basic commandments of not worshiping idols and then say you love Him…? Why don’t you care what your Bible says…? Why don’t you love Jews enough to provoke them to jealousy by biblically loving your Jewish Messiah…? I am bitter… I am so sad…! What will it take for the Church to love her Bridegroom undefiled and equally yoked…? Persecution…? For him who has ears to hear… I am sorry if you hate me because I hate Christmas. But Yeshua hates it, too.”
A FB friend and I had the following exchange about the above FB post (BTW – It is shared anonymously with her permission):
FRIEND: The problem I have is how she out right condemns us Christians.
ROBIN: Unfortunately, this is the crux that will bring the One New Man in the Messiah together. Jews know that Christmas is based in Babylon and God condemns it. Christians think God grace allows them to overlook fulfilling the commandments like Jesus did. I don’t support her condemning Christians, but you’ve now seen a glimpse into a linchpin of light that once we all “keep he commandments of God AND the faith of Jesus” (Rev 14:12), the Body of Christ — both Jew & Gentile — will be joined as one in Him. Yeshua will not intimately join Himself to Christmas. He literally tells us that the worship of sun gods drive Him far from His sanctuary.

FRIEND: Yes, I am just being introduced to what Christmas is but it will be him to bring me revelation and not someone on FB criticizing me and say I am not a Christian. Just as you said he was the one to bring you revelation. He knew the proper timing to reveal this to you.
ROBIN: Yes. They went too far there, because anyone can be saved (be a Christian though faith by grace) and still break every commandment. Anyone… including me. That is why it’s a choice to do a marriage contract (ketubah) with His Ten Commandments.
Due to all the deception perpetrated by the religions Babylonian system that exists within the institutional Church, I believe that there is great grace extended to those coming out of Babylon and laying down Christmas to become part of His pure and spotless Bride.
Try to extend grace and love to those that are frustrated. They don’t get how Christians can be so crass in doing outright idolatry and being ignorant of it. I also encourage the other side (Jews) to extend grace and love to those who don’t see. The ONE full of truth and grace will change us all.
FRIEND: Yes! It’s like when you first get saved and have no knowledge. Then you look back today and see how far you have grown from the first day you were saved. The very things we believed yesterday does mean we still hold those things as truth, because we have greater revelation and knowledge. It’s a process I believe.
ROBIN: It certainly is. Let us all be long-suffering & understanding, yet speak the truth in love .
FRIEND: Yes. That’s how I want to be.
