When believers accept Jesus (Yeshua) as our Lord and Savior, we say that Jesus has been put in our heart. In other words, eternity has been put in our heart. Technically, eternity was not put in our hearts due to salvation, because eternity has already been set in the heart of every person made in God’s own image (Genesis 1:26-27; Ecclesiastes 3:11). Every human being has been created as unlimited, just like our Heavenly Father, Yeshua and the Holy Spirit. “Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image” (Genesis 1:26 NASB). We just haven’t actualized this reality on earth, as it is in heaven, yet, where this mortality takes on immortality.
We need to understand that accepting the sovereign gift of salvation of Yeshua’s sacrifice on the Cross in reality activates the incorruptible seed of eternity set in a person’s heart from the beginning.
So, why would you or I want to remain tethered to the fallen world once our eternal unlimited reality has become activated? You may believe that you are only tethered to the True Messiah Yeshua, but understand that our celebrations (i.e., worship practices) reveal this actuality, or not.
Since the worldwide winter celebration called New Year is upon us, let’s examine the limited concept and world of Father Time. The celebration of the New Year’s Day on January 1st and New Year’s Eve on December 31st comes from Babylon, flows through Greece and Rome and culminates in our modern-day drunken extravaganza. The pagan gods of time do the same, culminating in today’s Father Time.
The mythological figure of Father Time is based upon earlier pictures of Saturn, including symbols of the scythe and hour-glass. The prophet Amos speaks against those people who worship Saturn instead of the Creator who made the Pleiades and Orion (Amos 5:8).
Understand that Father Time and Father Christmas (Santa Claus) are both rooted in the worship of the ancient Chaldean god Saturn. Reverend Alexander Hislop’s book “The Two Babylons” records: The original name of Rome was “Saturnalia,” the city of Saturn, the city on seven hills where the Roman god Saturn formerly reigned. The whole of Italy was long after called by his name being commonly called “The Saturnian Land.” On the Capitoline hill, the image of Saturn, the formerly great Chaldean god, had been erected as a great high place of Roman worship when the Pagan Roman Emperors laid claim to the title pontifex maximus. The pontifex maximus existed in Rome from the earliest of times and was modeled after the head Pontiff at Babylon. Hislop plainly points out that Saturn is another name for Satan.
In my book SANTA-TIZING, I write extensively about the Roman Saturnalia (Saturn Worship), which is the immediate predecessor of our modern-day Christmas season. Not only is the Roman Saturnalia one of the founts of Christmas, but its Saturn Worship is also the origins of the Golden Calf that Aaron made (Exodus 32:4). When Aaron fashioned his golden calf, there was an ancient and automatic connection to the great Chaldean god Saturn. For more details, check out http://wp.me/p158HG-2m orhttp://wp.me/p158HG-kH .
Please do your own research. I have greatly simplified things in this article in order to help us better understand that the worldwide celebrations of Christmas and New Year’s come from Babylon and tethers practitioners to the fallen world (i.e., the demonic control of spacetime) through tethering us to the False Messiah (Mithra) and the Black Cube (Saturn). Please refer to https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/11/07/festive-tethers-to-space-time/.
Saturnalia itself developed from the older rituals of midwinter (i.e., the winter solstice) and goes all the way back to Babylon in the ancient land of Mesopotamia, where the midwinter king’s (initially Tammuz) birthday was celebrated on December 25. The Saturnalia was said to be a reenactment of the happy age when Saturnus reigned the earth as its first king. Take your pick. In the natural realm, the earth’s first king was the mighty one Nimrod, in the spiritual realm this equates to Satan (i.e., Saturn). Gladiators fought to the death in Saturnalia funeral games. Today, the ancestor of the worship of Saturn has death as its fruit too. The Christmas season is known as the heart attack season in hospitals. It is also known for having the highest suicide risk of the year.
Several sources say that Saturnalia was a seasonal festival, which began in the middle of December continuing until January first. I have adopted this definition to simplify our understanding, but in actuality, by the fourth century the Romans celebrated three pagan festivals: the Saturnalia, Sol Invictus Mithra (December 25th birthday of the solar god called “The Nativity”) and the January Kalends.
The January Kalends was a New Year’s party. Today, Western civilization still follows the Kalends’ tradition of singing and heavy drinking on New Year’s Eve. A fourth century writer, Libanius, describes the Roman January Kalends: “The impulse to spend seizes everyone. . . . People are not only generous towards themselves, but also towards their fellow-men. A stream of presents pours itself out on all sides . . . The Kalends festival banishes all that is connected with toil, and allows men to give themselves up to undisturbed enjoyment.”
Even though I don’t emphasize the January Kalends much in my book SANTA-TIZING, please note that the gift-giving tradition connected to this ancient Roman New Year’s festival still existed in New York City when Christmas was forged into its modern image in the 1820s. The overwhelming element of our modern Christmas—shopping—was transported into America’s renewed image of Christmas via merchants and the Americanized Santa Claus tradition. It’s not merely a coincidence that the Temple of Saturn in the Roman Forum used to house the state’s treasury.
By the way, the January Kalends also has primordial roots that reach back into Babylon’s twelve-day New Year’s festival (i.e., Akiti) coupled with the magical appeal of its December sun god birth observance. Christmas acts like a homing device or talisman that never fails to point us back to the sensual place where mixture is its modus operandi. Christmas’s homing signal draws people together, reminding us to look not just to our immediate friends and family, but back toward Babylon.
The Yuletide season is the high tide for the year when the world is of one mind. The people of the earth are busy building a tower by our own desires and design, to get for ourselves what we believe is a slice of heaven. Remember that the Babylonian “land of merchants” status is exemplified by: harlotry, a continual lust for more, disdain for frugal spending, and shrines at the beginning of every street and in the high place of every town square. Refer tohttp://wp.me/p158HG-jF.
Although there is quite a bit of confusion, the Akiti celebrated during Babylon’s New Year and the birthday celebration for Tammuz on December 25 appears to have merged and morphed into our modern-day Christmas and New Year season via the Roman Saturnalia and the January Kalends.
Christmas and New Year celebrations are both rooted in the honor and worship of Saturn (Satan). It’s not mere happenstance that Saturn is defined as the Roman god of time as well as agriculture. “He . . . shall intend to change times and law . . .” (Dan. 7:25 NKJV).
This is not the most ancient path of the Ancient of Days; but the path of antiquity, which glorifies man and feeds his flesh. Materialism, sensual gratification, and carnal pleasure, readily apparent at Christmas and the January New Year celebrations, cannot, and do not, satisfy one’s soul, for these vices are earthly and sensual. It leaves people lusting for more as the manic shopping of December twenty-sixth attests. The kingdom of God is in direct opposition to the kingdom of self. How will the Church be able to stand before God justifying our Babylonian practices and our Greek mind-sets? Instead of time being sanctified as God designed and desires, it became triggers for idolatrous behavior, and shows us a worldly pattern for assimilating God’s people into pagan practices and thus corrupting God’s priesthood, who are supposed to be holy, with customs associated with idols.
