THE SUBSTANCE OF THE BODY OF CHRIST IN BIBLICAL FEASTS

trumpets - yeshua

The question is: “Where does the Messiah say: After I’m gone, continue to celebrate My feasts?” Or “Where am I commanded to celebrate the Feasts of the Lord?”

Just as Yeshua (Jesus) remained silent when He walked among His disciples on earth about the Gentiles joining the people of God in much greater numbers after His final ascension, so is the celebration of Biblical Feasts in this Kingdom Day. The answer we seek is in consulting the Spirit of the Living God and the entirety of what is written in Scripture.

Ironically, the clearest case in the New Testament for celebrating the Lord’s Feasts is presented in the chapter that many Christians have used as their excuse that they can celebrate anything they want, any way they want:

“Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a holy day, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ” (Colossians 2:16-17 KJV).

Christians have long used Colossians 2:16-17 to rationalize why we should no longer celebrate the Lord’s Feast, but in fact this passage actually proves the opposite. The NASB version tells us: “Therefore no one is to act as your judge in regard … to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day — things which are a mere shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Christ.” The very first point I’d like to emphasize is that YESHUA IS THE SUBSTANCE BEHIND ALL OF THE BIBLICAL FEASTS. His Spring Feasts (articulated in Leviticus 23) speak of His First Coming. His Fall Feasts speak of His Second Coming. The two winter feasts mentioned in God’s Word – Hanukkah and Purim – portray God’s people (the Church) journey to becoming His Bride. Please see https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=647170962022068&set=pb.436004819805351.-2207520000.1396291783.&type=3&theater about how God is changing history through a shaking and a rumbling via the full council of the Word of God, and somehow the seven Feasts of God are becoming nine Bridal Feasts in this Kingdom Day.

When we argue that we can celebrate a holiday (holy day or feast) any way we want, we have tapped into a portion of the truth. The next significant point is: WE ARE NOT TO JUDGE OTHERS ON HOW THEY CELEBRATE A BIBLICAL FESTIVAL, new moon or Sabbath day. Did you catch that? Paul is assuming that God’s people are celebrating all three of these things that mark God’s peoples weeks, months and years according to His Word. BTW – That word “judge” means we are not to criticize, censure, condemn, or punish people on how they celebrate a Biblical festival. (Note: I am leaving out new moons and Sabbaths out for simplicity’s sake).

There are many people currently returning to these Age-Old Foundations, and there is so much hullaballoo about what is the right way to do this and that. Let’s be perfectly clear. IT DOES NOT MATTER HOW YOU CELEBRATE A BIBLICAL FESTIVAL, AS LONG AS YOU ARE ENDEAVORING TO FOLLOW HIS WORD BY HIS SPIRIT, because celebrations are all about worship. “But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers” (John 4:23 NASB).

For example: Some people celebrate the Feast of Unleavened Bread by physically searching every nook and cranny of their house for yeast and throwing it all out. Others take this to mean that the Feast of Unleavened Bread is a time that Yah’s Family searches every nook and cranny of their heart to get rid of all sin. I fall in the later category, but I do not judge those who feel led to do otherwise. In fact, I even believe that each culture can, and will, bring their beautiful unique touches to each Biblical Feast. I have seen a tremendous amount of freedom within the worshipping the Father in spirit and truth context.

Know that there are only three Biblical Feasts that are called feasts forever: Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles. Zechariah 14:16-17 tells us that in the Millennial Kingdom nations will not receive rain if they don’t come up to Jerusalem to worship the King from year to year, and specifically keep the Feast of Tabernacles. BTW – We have now entered that time frame here on earth.

If we want to walk in the same manner as Yeshua did and resonate at the same frequency as the Word of God Himself, we need to consider if the fullness of the measure of the stature of the Messiah includes celebrating all the feasts that He did (1 John 2:6; Eph 4:13). If not one jot or tittle will pass away, we need to consider why these other feasts are in His Word and whether they are significant to Him. I feel a resounding “Yes!” in my heart, because I want to walk like Yeshua, talk like Yeshua, and be exactly like Yeshua… But I also don’t want to be caught up in an old form or legalism. IN THIS KINGDOM DAY, WE ARE NOT NECESSARILY RETURNING TO THE FORMS OF WORSHIP BUT THE SUBSTANCE.

Recall that Yeshua is the substance of all the Biblical Feasts. Consider this in regard to both His Head and His Body. God’s people will literally embody the marks of time that the Lord Himself has put in place to set His people’s years, months and weeks. We are told that these are “shadows of things to come.” When God created man in His own image, the Hebrew word tzelem is used and is derived from tzel, which means “shadow.” Therefore, one of the interpretations of a “shadow of things to come” is the manifestation of Christ’s Body coming into its fullness as a perfect One New Man in Christ (Ephesians 2:15; Ephesians 4:13).

“Let NO MAN therefore judge you … in respect of a holy day… which are a shadow of things to come; but the BODY IS OF CHRIST” (Colossians 2:16-17 KJV). In NO MAN’S Land, Crucified Ones will rightly judge – open the Door of Life – to His Biblical Feasts, so Christ’s Body can connect to the mature Head who is casting the shadow. We must comprehend that a shadow always resembles its substance. When the Bible says it’s a “shadow of things to come,” it additionally means that we will be answering to the Creator, who is casting the shadow.

So no one is to act as your judge in regard to a festival, what matters is that we celebrate Him with a sincere heart. In the Kingdom of God, we all must respect the right of each individual to be “led by the Spirit.” However, the Lord says, “We have been called unto liberty, only use not this liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.” That brings us to our next significant point: THERE IS NO MIXTURE IN GOD’S APPOINTED TIMES AND FEASTS CELEBRATED IN HIS KINGDOM. The Lord will have us redeem things that have a righteous real to them. For instance, things that He has created like light, sound, colors, etc. But know this: The Lord does not redeem things that are demonic in origin and pagan at their roots. He judges them.

The passage directly after Colossians 2:16-17 speaks to our current situation in the Christian Church in regard to the holidays that we have assimilated which have mixture in them, like Christmas and Easter: “Let NO MAN beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, And not holding the Head, from which all the Body… knit together, increases with the increases of God. Wherefore if you be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are you subject to ordinances… which all are to perish with the using… after the commandments and doctrines of men? Which things have indeed a show of wisdom in will-worship [my note – We choose by our will to worship after the traditions of men] and humility, and neglecting of the Body [my note – not holding fast to the Head and not being knit and joined together in love according to His Word] not in any honor to the satisfying of the flesh.” (Colossians 2:18-23).

Celebrating Biblical Feasts is all about rewards and qualifying to be part of His Pure and Spotless Bride. It is not about salvation, which is solely through faith by grace. In NO MAN’S LAND, Crucified Ones will not allow themselves to be diverted, deceived, or beguiled from receiving their eternal rewards to the satisfaction of the flesh.

I can go line-upon-line speaking for days to show you how Colossians 2:18-23 speaks about the mixture involved in the big yearly worship celebrations of the Christian Church – Christmas and Easter – but I don’t have the time or space here. BTW – I wrote about all this in extreme detail in my book. The link is below. Frankly, all you need to do is lay down Easter and Christmas on His Altar, and simply ask Him: “Can I receive my eternal reward of being part of Your Pure & Spotless Bride, if I celebrate Christmas and Easter?” Then be quiet and listen; and make sure that you are truly hearing Him, not the idols of your heart.

I will end with this… The last PRACTICAL KEYS TO UNLOCKING MELCHIZEDEK post (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=652095694862928&set=pb.436004819805351.-2207520000.1396300629.&type=3&theater) spoke about the look and sound of PERFECT of the Order of Melchizedek. The root Greek word for “perfect” is the same root word for “commandment” in John 14:30-31: “Hereafter I will not talk much for the prince of the world comes and has NOTHING in Me. But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave Me COMMANDMENT, even so I do.” KNOW THAT HIS ROYAL PRIESTS OF HIS HOLY NATION WILL RESTORE ALL THINGS, INCLUDING TIME AND CELEBRATING HIM HIS WAYS.

PURE WORSHIP OF THE MESSIAH’S BRIDE

Aurora Iceberg Campfire in Alaska

While the world celebrates the Winter Solstice today, those who love their Beloved Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) are called to something so much higher and so much more beautiful.

Winter Solstice celebrations began in Babylon with the birth day of the first pagan sun god Tammuz on the ancient winter solstice on December 25th. Pagans still celebrate this original solar deity birth. The most important time of celebration for pagans (i.e., earth worshipers) is the Winter Solstice (Yule, Saturnalia or Midwinter). Yule is the northernmost point of their Wheel of the Year, which is a Witch’s Wheel that’s an annual cycle of seasonal festivals that serves to tether people to earth and earthly things. Although practices vary, pagans who engage the entire Witch’s Wheel (like Wicca) often celebrate all eight festivals, including Yule. Winter Solstice practices vary, but sacrificing, feasting, and gift giving are common elements of Midwinter festivities. Note: At the time of the winter solstice on the ancient calendar, they had a public child mass. “Mass” literally means sacrifice in this context. Please refer to Chapter 5 in SANTA-TIZING for more on this subject. Bringing evergreen sprigs and wreaths of holly, ivy, mistletoe and pine into the home and decorating trees were (and still are) also common during this time. An ancient Babylonian custom was to go out and place a gift on a tree during the Winter Solstice (Dec. 25th) as an offering to Tammuz/Nimrod. Does this sound familiar? It should, because the Winter Solstice is the very root of our modern supposedly “Christianized” Christmas.

The very name by which Christmas is also known—Yule-day or the Yuletide season—is literally linked to its Babylonian origin. Far and wide, in the realms of ancient paganism, the birth of the son of the Babylonian Queen of Heaven was celebrated at the time of Midwinter (i.e., the Winter Solstice), which as we have said, in antiquity equated to the date of December twenty-fifth.

Part of the birth celebration of the original Babylonian Queen of Heaven’s son consisted of bringing in a Yule log on December twenty-fourth. The Yule log symbolized Nimrod being cut down in the prime of his life and in the height of his power, then cut into pieces and burned. The Yule log ceremony celebrated the sun during the winter solstice. The word solstice comes from the word sun, and it means to “stand still” as it appears to do on the shortest day of the year as the sun gets nearest to the southern horizon. The date of December twenty-fifth was designated the highest holy day of the pagan year, because it was originally associated with the mother-child cult. Still today, one of the eight Wiccan/Pagan holidays is called Yule, and it celebrates the shortest day of the year. The southernmost descent of the sun on the ancient calendar was said to portray the death of Nimrod, while the coming back of the sun portrayed his rebirth in Tammuz.

I simply love the earth, which is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof; the world and all that dwell therein (Psalm 24:1). I enjoy communing with nature and the solace it brings. Our Glorious Creator is in all that He has made, and He continually holds it together (Hebrews 1:3). However, we need to be careful that we don’t worship creation rather than the Creator.

Pure worship of the King of Kings untethers us from creation and connects us to the unlimited realm of the Creator Himself while celebrating created things like the sun’s “rebirth” serves to strengthen our tethers to the fallen world and its limited spacetime continuum. Scripture tells us that nature should point us to our invisible Creator: “From the beginning, creation in its magnificence enlightens us to His nature. Creation itself makes His undying power and divine identity clear, even though they are invisible; and it voids the excuses and ignorant claims of these people because, despite the fact that they knew the one true God, they have failed to show the love, honor, and appreciation due to the One who created them! Instead, their lives are consumed by vain thoughts that poison their foolish hearts. They claim to be wise; but they have been exposed as fools, frauds, and con artists— only a fool would trade the splendor and beauty of the immortal God to worship images of the common man or woman, bird or reptile, or the next beast that tromps along” (Romans 1:20-23 VOICE).

Those who have accepted Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) as their Lord and Savior have activated the incorruptible seed of eternity that has been set in man’s heart (Ecclesiastes 3:11), which is the Word of God – Yeshua. Why would you choose to go backwards and become limited again through mixed means of worship?

Let’s lay aside everything that so easily entangles us to simply worship the Messiah and the Father in Spirit and in Truth. If we follow the Biblical marks of time and celebrate Him His ways, we remain untethered from the world. The Messiah’s Bride needs to consider what He considers pure worship, which is actually something simple to ascertain. Let’s follow in the footsteps of our Pattern Son – Yeshua. In the modern vernacular, ask yourself: What Would Jesus Do (WWJD)? Then let the Bible show you.

Two verses in Scripture show Jesus walking. One John declares over Jesus “Behold, the Lamb of God!” (John 1:36). The other reveals Jesus walking in the Temple in portico of Solomon during the Feast of Dedication (i.e., Hanukkah) right after He declares twice that I AM the Door of the sheep (John 10:1, 7) and declares twice that I AM the Good Shepherd (John 10:11, 14) during Hanukkah. Let’s consider what the Word of God tells us about what Jesus did during the winter (John 10:22-23); and then use it to funnel true and perfect worship in His Winter One-Dear-Land. Pure worship of the Messiah’s Bride is the most valuable treasure of ice and snow.

Won’t you come and adore Him by doing what He did?

As a special winter oneder-land treat, please enjoy Sapphire Throne Ministries’ ninth “Revelations From Metatron” Class, which is focused on pure worship, and loving the Lord our God with all our heart, with all our soul, and with all our strength => https://youtu.be/SQIs7UUJEJU. Enjoy!

TESTING ASCENSION IN CHRIST EXPERIENCES

ascension bride orb

For several years, I have gotten questions about Christmas Town in Heaven. People are getting confused about reputable people with huge followings with solid principles (with fruit) that seem to have personally experienced Christmas Town and Jesus enjoying Christmas versus people like myself saying the exact opposite. Let’s get down to some basic principles for testing Ascension in Christ experiences.

First and foremost, do not base an Ascension in Christ experience on what some other person says, no matter how reputable. It’s what our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ of Nazareth (i.e., Messiah Yeshua) and the Holy Spirit says that matters. Every person – every minister of the gospel – can be off; therefore, we need to do as the Bereans did and test whether something is true, or not, according to His standards. “Now these were more noble-minded then those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so” (Acts 17:11 NASB).

We each need to personally research whether our Ascension in Christ experience aligns with Scripture. Even Satan ascends to accuse the brethren, so be careful to make sure that ascended experiences line-up with the Word of God. “Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them” (Job 1:6 NKJV). Ana Méndez Ferrell tells us that the first step to victory is: “to determine in our hearts and to let the devil know that we live and depend 100 percent on God’s Word, which is infallible, all-powerful, unlimited and eternal. … We confront Satan successfully only when we know … that heaven and Earth will pass away but that God’s Word will never pass away.”

I have researched “Christmas” both scripturally and historically for 20 years, and I can assure you that Christmas is NOT endorsed by the Word of God. My book SANTA-TIZING: What’s wrong with Christmas and how to clean it up is a result of 10 years of full-time study in this regard, which I wrote with love and the reverential fear of the Lord, because of a vow I made to Yeshua’s face. Refer to http://wp.me/p158HG-4E and http://wp.me/p158HG-kH .

I have also wrote a couple articles about the Christmas Town subject,” if you are interested:

[1] CHRISTMAS TOWN IN HEAVEN =>  https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2017/12/27/christmas-town-in-heaven/

[2] HEAVEN DOES NOT CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS. NEITHER DID JESUS WHILE HE WAS ON EARTH => https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2016/12/04/heaven-does-not-celebrate-christmas-neither-did-jesus-while-he-was-on-earth/

One other thing to ponder in regard to Christmas is ask yourself and ask Messiah Yeshua why most believers strive to do what Jesus did in all areas of our lives, except when it comes to Christmas. While Jesus walked on earth, He celebrated Hanukkah, not Christmas => https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2015/12/02/yeshua-celebrated-hanukkah-not-christmas/. We would do well to remember that Hanukkah actually celebrates the overthrow of the Antichrist’s idol of Christmas on God’s Altar (His people’s heart).

Before, during or after you test whether an Ascension in Christ experience lines up with Scripture, you can ask Messiah Yeshua how He personally feels about it. We all will have to personally give an account for what we have done in our life: “And behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to give every man according to his work shall be” (Revelation 22:12 KJV). Becoming a precious part of His pure and spotless Bride will cost us everything. All for Jesus. Our precious Jesus will be plainly seen and understood through His Bridal Company of Crucified Ones. So, ask Yeshua. Ask Him about Christmas. Ask Him: “How do You truly feel about Christmas?” Then, intently focus on Him and wait for His answer. Here’s a couple helpful hints. In order to not hear the idols of one’s own heart, please lay down all your personal desire on God’s Altar to truly hear His heart. Also, be sure to ask His perfect will, not His permissive will. A permissive will question like “Can I celebrate Christmas?” will always result in “yes”; because worship (i.e., celebrating Christmas) is not about salvation, it’s about eternal rewards and the pure and spotless Bride of Christ.

The goal of Ascension in Christ is oneness. Oneness with the Messiah; and thus, the Father, is accomplished by becoming one with Him first. It’s only when the Messiah’s Body (you and I) holds fast to the Head – Messiah Yeshua – that we can come in to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God unto a perfect man… One New Man in the Messiah. It not about what this person thinks or experiences, or what that person thinks or experiences. It’s about Messiah Yeshua who is called the “Word of God” (Revelation 19:13).

I pray that we all speak the truth in love, so we may all grow up into Him in all things, which is the Head, even Christ (Ephesians 4:15) until we come “unto measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:13).

Give em heaven!!!

PROCESS OF BECOMING AN EXACT RE-PRESENTATION

body Chemistry

“And He is the radiance of His glory and the EXACT REPRESENTATION OF HIS NATURE, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high” (Hebrew 1:3 NASB).

Believers are to walk the same way as the Pattern Son – Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ). “But whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him: the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked” (1 John 2:5-6 NASB).

The process of becoming an exact re-presentation of Yeshua starts with salvation, progresses to sanctification and culminates in purification.

Once we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior (i.e., salvation) through faith by grace, believers “see the Kingdom of God” (John 3:3).

As we mature, we work out our salvation with fear and trembling, which is our sanctification stage. The work of sanctification causes believers to “enter the Kingdom of God” when they are born or baptized by water and spirit (John 3:5). This is when set apart believers are commissioned into the Order of Melchizedek. Refer to https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/05/21/receiving-a-commission-into-the-order-of-melchizedek/.

As set apart believers continue to work out their salvation with fear and trembling in order to receive the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus to become just like Him, we enter the purification stage where our goal is to “inherit the Kingdom of God” (1 Corinthians 6:9-10; Galatians 5:19-21).

During the sanctification and purification stages, the kings and priests of the Order of Melchizedek are leading their own inner fire bride forth in order to become one with our Beloved Messiah. Please do not get hung up on genders in the Spirit, because women can be sons of God and men can be part of the Bride of Christ (Galatians 3:28). When a fire bride resonates at the exact same frequency as the Word of God, this is when they manifestly become one with the Messiah, as His Bride. This is also when they become part of the fully mature Body of the Messiah (Christ) where they are embedded in the righteous Messiah’s Oneness Metatron Matrix. When a person becomes embedded in the righteous Oneness Metatron Matrix, they have become the exact re-presentation of Messiah Yeshua as the heavenly One New Man in the Messiah. Please seek the Father about “Metatron” and get His heart and mind about it, because 90-percent of what you read on Google is off Here’s a little more on the extremely important, yet controversial, topic – Metatron:

INTRODUCED TO METATRON => https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2018/11/02/introduced-to-metatron/

METATRON IS BIBLICAL => https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2018/10/31/metatron-is-biblical/

ARE WE CALLED TO BE METATRON? => https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2018/11/01/are-we-called-to-be-metatron/

THE HEAVENLY MAN METATRON IS THE BRIDE OF YHVH => https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/06/29/the-heavenly-man-metatron-is-the-bride-of-yhvh/

METATRON – ONENESS OF THE MESSIAH YESHUA => https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/07/01/metatron-oneness-of-the-messiah-yeshua/

ONENESS METATRON MATRIX – FULLY MATURE SONS => https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/11/30/oneness-metatron-matrix-fully-mature-sons/

So, remember the process of becoming an exact re-presentation of Yeshua is salvation, sanctification and purification. It’s “see the Kingdom of God,” “enter the Kingdom of God,” and “inherit the Kingdom of God.” It’s immature sons becoming kings and priests of the Order of Melchizedek who lead their own inner fire bride forth to become fully one with Messiah Yeshua, as His Bride and His Fully Mature One New Man in Christ.

We will meet December 17-21, 2018 starting at 5:30 PM MST (Denver, Colorado USA) time.

ST. NICOLAS OPPOSED CHRISTMAS!!!

nicholas2

What if I told you that that the Christmas icon – Saint Nicolas – actually opposed Christmas? It’s true, but one must dig deep to find this treasure hid in darkness.

The Catholic Encyclopedia states about Saint Nicolas: “Though he is one of the most popular saints in the Greek as well as the Latin Church, there is scarcely anything historical certain about him except that he was the Bishop of Myra in the fourth century.”

Even though the Catholic Encyclopedia usually preserves a historically accurate record in regard to “Christmas,” I have found two instances where this is not the case: [1] They hide the fact that the rowdy and extremely sensual pagan Roman Saturnalia (worship of Saturn) is the most immediate predecessor of our modern day Christmas Season, and [2] They definitely know more about Saint Nicolas than where he lived and when he lived. For instance, historically, we know that Nicolas was present at the Council of Nicaea where he was stripped of his bishop title, because he opposed the Arianism being promoted there.

What was the Arianism being promoted at the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD? Arianism was a humongous heretical sect, which regarded Jesus as solely a human agent.

It was the “official” Catholic Church’s compromise with this Arianism philosophy that led them to assimilate into their ecclesiastical calendar Mithra’s Winter Festival in 379 AD. Mithra’s Winter Festival celebrated the pagan sun god Mithra’s birthday, which was also known as “The Nativity,” or “The Nativity of the Sun,” or “The Nativity of the Unconquered Sun.” The Catholic Encyclopedia itself admits: “The Nativity of the Unconquered Sun, celebrated on the 25th of December, has a strong claim on the responsibility of our December date.”

Before the Roman shift in time, December 25th marked the ancient winter solstice and was known throughout antiquity as the birthday of the all the pagan s-u-n gods. Even today, pagans still celebrate the Winter Solstice and the birth of the sun god(s) when they mark Christmas. The December 25th worship of sun gods began in Babylon with the birth of the Babylonian sun god – Tammuz. Mithra just happens to be the Persian version of the pagan sun gods.

When the council at Nicaea stripped Nicholas of his bishop title for opposing Arianism, they were coming against his opposition to assimilating the people who believed in the Arianism philosophy and the church’s establishment of Christmas to appease the ones who believed that Jesus was solely human. Therefore, good old generous and miracle working St Nic didn’t endorse or support Christmas. He literally opposed Christmas. Wow!!! This is huge!!!

Please allow me to re-iterate this bombshell of historically accurate revelation. Saint Nicolas was stripped of his bishop title for opposing the Catholic Church’s compromise with the Arianism promoted at the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD. What this means is SAINT NICOLAS OF MYRA OPPOSED THE CHURCH’S ESTABLISHMENT OF CHRISTMAS!!! Let the gravity of this Big Lie sink in; and then, let the truth set us all free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Significantly, the primordial practice of the Christian Church for approximately its first 300 years was Gentile Believers joined Jewish Believers in celebrating the Lord’s Biblical Feasts as One New Man. We need to return to our age-old foundation where the One New Man in the Messiah does what Jesus did (as revealed in the Word of God) in order to be made into the exact same image as Jesus  =>  https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2015/12/02/yeshua-celebrated-hanukkah-not-christmas/.

Please note that the first recorded evidence of a “Christianized” Christmas actually taking place on December 25th isn’t found until the time of Constantine in 336 AD, which was 11 years after the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD.

It shouldn’t surprise us that religious and secular institutions have been covering up the truth and manipulating the masses to their own ends. The enemy of our souls has always been after people’s worship, and believe you me, Christmas is all about worship. It’s mixed sacred and profane worship that God will spit out of His mouth, because He considers it yucky (Revelation 3:16). The pagans in the fifth century recognized their own solar cults in the assimilated church practices of orienting cathedrals to the east, worshiping on “Sun Day,” and celebrating the birth of their deity on the ancient winter solstice – December 25th. It was common practice in this same fifth century for worshiper entering St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome to turn at the door, put their backs to the altar, and bow down to worship the rising sun. Please refer to Ezekiel 8:6,16 for God’s opinion of this practice, and check out http://wp.me/p158HG-Dx  for more on this topic.

I think Saint Nicolas was, and still is, a true son of God. Somehow, the very thing that he opposed got pinned on him after his death due to his godly generosity, amongst other things. How did it happen? That is something I am still researching, as I lay this before the Lord. It appears to be very much like the Catholic Church painting Mary the mother of Jesus in the idolatrous image of the ungodly Babylonian Queen of Heaven (Madonna and Child) when she is in fact a precious part of the True Queen of Heaven – the corporate Bride of Christ.

It’s time for the restoration of all things!!! In this particular instance, it’s time for the restoration of the godly character of the true son of God Saint Nicolas (without Christmas) AND it’s time for the mixture of Christmas to return to its original dark and demonic state. Refer to https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2014/12/06/the-roots-of-christmas/ or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvrVXjd-mm8.

The restoration of all things returns everything to its original and eternal state. Believers need to understand that our Lord God is NOT going to redeem anything whose origins are demonic or evil. The redemption of those things whose roots are demonic is for them to be judged, so that they no longer exist. Then, whatever was perverted returns to its pristine, primordial state and it resonates at the same frequency as God’s Word =>  https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/10/19/how-does-god-redeem-evil-or-demonic-things/.

Also, don’t forget that my book SANTA-TIZING: What’s wrong with Christmas and how to clean it up covers all the angles and was written in obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ after I had vowed to His face three times => https://www.amazon.com/SANTA-TIZING-Whats-wrong-Christmas-clean/dp/1607911159.

IT’S NOT TOO LATE – RE-DEDICATION!!!

Aurora Borelis Church

It’s not too late to re-dedicate your hearts to do what Jesus did (John 10:22-23)!!! In 1998, my family started celebrating Hanukkah on the official last day of Hanukkah; and then, we continued our new beginning for eight days straight.

The following is an excerpt from the “Word Up” Section of Chapter 1 from my SANTA-TIZING: What’s wrong with Christmas and how to clean it up book, pages 13-17 (https://www.amazon.com/SANTA-TIZING-Whats-wrong-Christmas-clean/dp/1607911159):

Now to how I came to write this book on this highly controversial subject: As sure as I know that my daddy loves me, I know that the Word of the Lord came to me twice on two separate occasions. While I do not put these revelatory words of the Lord (i.e., rhema) on par with Scripture, I greatly value anything God would like to share with me, especially anything close to His heart. I also check any rhema word against Scripture, for I believe that God does not contradict His written Word.

The first Word of the Lord, which is important for the context of this book, happened in the month of December. The year was 1998. Jesus came to me in an apparition. He had tears in His eyes when He told me: “The mixture of Christmas grieves my heart.” He paused momentary to let this bombshell sink in; then added: “Come out of Babylon and lay down Christmas, for I will have a pure and spotless Bride.” As all things truly of God are, these words were utterly life changing.

As a side, please allow me to explain that I am not trying to appear to be more spiritual than others by sharing the words, experiences, or visions I have received from the Lord. The Lord has created me to be a seer, and visions are a regular way the Lord communicates with me. Other believers have different, and just as important, gifts given by the grace of God as articulated in the Bible. My husband is an excellent example of this. John has the gifts of practical knowledge, profound discernment, and sound wisdom, which encourage, ground, and balance everyone around him. John tells me that he has never directly communicated with the Lord. When, in reality, he issues forth a steady stream of God’s living water, due to his efforts to live a right life before his Creator. Although some individuals may have a hard time accepting any spiritual (i.e., supernatural) experience, it is important to note that they are biblical and that our God is a supernatural God.

To help you understand what an unlikely candidate I was, know that in 1998 I loved the beauty of the Christmas season. I liked Christmas songs, Christmas teas, and Christmas cheer. Quite frankly, I’d be one of the last persons to be sour or dour toward any celebration. Growing up in northwestern Montana in the 1960s and ’70s, my family annually would go Christmas tree hunting. All five of us would pile into Dad’s big, green Ford pick-up and head out to the abundant supply of evergreens on national forest land west of Kalispell. It was a wonderful all-day event. We’d bring an axe, our sleds, and a thermos full of hot cocoa. My dad would dangerously drag our sleds behind his truck. I shouldn’t tell you that it was tons of fun! We sang, and sometimes yelled, carols via the PA system of my dad’s CB radio to any deer, bear, or squirrel that would listen. I’d have to say that Christmas tree hunting is still one of my favorite memories.

Extravagant parties are my forte too. Just ask any friend who has been to one of my tea parties. Additionally, when I got my first job out of college in southern California, I was a computer programmer/analyst by day and a sole proprietor of a handmade greeting card company by night. Let’s just say that I thoroughly took pleasure in putting a personal and affectionate touch to my annual Christmas cards. I also had a reputation for getting just the right gift. Even today, gift-giving and being involved in philanthropic efforts are two of my favorite things to do.

In 1998, I enjoyed the sights, sounds, smells, textures, and tastes related to Christmas. It’s safe to say I liked, even loved, it all. Yet way back, even when I was a child, somewhere deep inside of me, I sensed that something was amiss. And like Halloween, I shelved the “feeling,” remembering it only when the Lord chose to unveil the reason for my uneasiness.

I was totally cognizant that when the Lord said: “Come out of Babylon and lay down Christmas,” I would either choose to not obey; and thus, not believe and move toward an ever increasing compromised and useless Christian life—or—I would chose to hear God and seek understanding, so I could obey the dictates of the Lord’s heart; and thus, ever increase in knowing Him and His ways. The only option for my sold-out heart was to respond with a feeble, but genuine heart cry: “Lord, I want to. Help me. Show me the way. My husband’s not ready for this. Give me, give us a way out.”

Little did I expect the response to my prayer to be so dramatic and so soon. Within a few hours our beautiful Christmas tree, decorated to the hilt with so many sweet memories, was infested with hundreds, if not thousands, of tiny spiders. I didn’t take the time to count! As you probably could have guessed, I could have been diagnosed with arachnophobia at the time. I recount this story in chapter 7, but for now the shortened version of my story goes something like: It was the day of the winter solstice December 21, 1998. My husband was in an important all-day meeting, so a good friend and I dismantled my family’s Christmas tree without his knowledge. I thought something to the effect: Those spiders with “their” tree are outta here! As soon as the tree was out of our home, miraculously and instantaneously, all the spiders were gone. When my family room was cleared of its infestation, I placed all our beautifully wrapped gifts in the bare corner of the room where the tree used to reside. When I told my husband what happened, I was amazed at how fast he agreed that the entire situation was of God. I should let you know that my husband is extremely analytical and rarely agrees quickly to anything. He’s quite pensive and our family is better off for it.

Prior to our spousal heart-to-heart, I had been staring at our presents; and even though I felt an incredible spirit of joy and peace, I still felt a void. It was like having a rug being pulled out from beneath you. I had lost my footing, so I sought the Lord. I said something similar to: “There’s a big hole in our life now. What are we to do?” I distinctly heard Jesus say: “Do what I did. If Chanukah was good enough for Me, it’s good enough for you.” My first response was: “What?” At that time, I honestly never even had thought of that possibility. I went to my Strong’s Concordance and found the scriptural reference I needed under the word winter. But of course, Jesus grew up and lived as a Jew while He was here on earth: “Then came the Feast of Dedication at Jerusalem. It was winter, and Jesus was in the temple area walking in Solomon’s Colonnade” (John 10:22-23). Chanukah also can be spelled “Hanukkah.” It has several additional names, including the Feast of Dedication, the Feast of Miracles, and the Feast of Lights.

So, in 1998, our family set out to celebrate Chanukah. We were just like little children trying to please our parent with a clumsy, yet sincere, stab at doing what Jesus did. That year, December 21st was the last day of Chanukah; therefore, the last day of the official eight-day Chanukah season was the first day we actually celebrated as Jesus did. I thought it interesting that the Lord would reveal his heart about Christmas and Chanukah on the final and eighth day of Chanukah, because the number eight in Scripture speaks of new beginnings. For eight consecutive days, our cozy, little family lit a nine-branch lampstand at sunset, and read devotions from Matthew Henry’s Commentary of the Bible furnished by Robin Scarlata and Linda Pierce’s book: A Family Guide to the Biblical Holidays.

As I stated before, December 21, 1998, was also the day of the winter solstice, which was the actual day pagans originally celebrated Christmas under various other names. So . . . on the eighth day of Chanukah according to the biblical calendar and on the day of the winter solstice according to man’s marks of time, my family and I began a new and joyous journey. For us, God ordained this crossover date to switch our family from celebrating Christmas to His biblical celebration of Chanukah.

Give em heaven!!!

PURE WORSHIP – HANUKKAH

by Yuichi Yokota

Enoch’s name comes from the Hebrew name חֲנוֹך (Chanokh), which means “dedicated” while Hanukkah means “dedication.” Hidden within the Hebrew Name for Enoch are hints to the mysteries to the Seal of Enoch. Please refer to https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2018/12/05/enochs-seal-of-approval-hanukkah/.

Enoch is best known for being the one who was translated to heaven without dying; and then his mortality was transfigured to take on immortality (1 Cor. 15:53). The ancient Pseudo-Jonathan translation of Genesis 5:24 says it this way: “Enoch worshiped in truth before the Lord, and behold he was not with the inhabitants of the earth because he was taken away and he ascended to the firmament at the command of the Lord, and he was called Metatron, the Great Scribe.” 

Let’s simply focus on “Enoch worshiped in truth before the Lord” in this article. Some translations of Genesis 5:24 say “Enoch walked with God” instead of “Enoch worshiped in truth before the Lord.” Truth be told, they are one and the same. An ascended lifestyle (walk) flows with the rhythms of worshiping our Heavenly Father in Spirit and in Truth (John 4:23).

To a Hebrew, a person’s body, soul and spirit are all one, and they intersect at a person’s heart. Purely dedicating one’s heart is what the Feast of Dedication (i.e., Hanukkah) is all about. Check out these two short videos about the history of the first Hanukkah https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdhOh4iRD6c and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-qVfQtUaKA. Pay attention to what the Maccabees had to overthrow in order to purely worship the Most High God. Pay attention to the five arduous battles that preceded the re-dedication of God’s Altar. Within this true-life story are vital keys for the purity of God’s Altar (our hearts), purity of His Temple (our bodies), and pure worship.

Let’s return to the ascended reality of the treasuries of ice and snow, which in its most divine essence is pure worship. Behold, the Bride of the Messiah looks perfectly pure and peaceful. She is at rest, as she ascends in to perfect love.

Worship leads her, yet a jester is ahead of her. The jester is the Christmas King or the Lord of Misrule whom most of the corporate Bride of Christ is currently following. Behold, the Bride pivots to the right away from the jester on the seventh foundation stone of the New Jerusalem – chrysolite – which becomes a peaceful firmament beneath Her. The Messiah’s Bride absorbs the qualities of strength, confidence and fearless from this seventh foundation stone.

As the Bride stands right and true, Melchizedek comes to her with a long white robe on that sparkles with the iridescent colors of the Seven Spirits of God. Melchizedek tells Her: “You have chosen the better part,” as he hands Her a New Jerusalem Seventh Foundation Stone ring and an ancient skeleton key.

Behold, there’s a glass ceiling of Christmas around the earth. It’s not a coincidence that Santa Claus is connected to the North Pole. Melchizedek speaks of the treasuries of ice and snow, and how truth and life must be unlocked. These treasures are locked in a vault with a crystal-clear door that has been frozen in time and held captive, starting in Rome where mixture of the profane and the sacred began. The true treasures of God’s Kingdom have been replaced with trinkets from the merchants of the earth. They have locked up the New Jerusalem.

The True Bride of the Messiah is tasked with destroying the glass ceiling of Christmas around the earth with her chrysolite ring in order to open up the ancient pathway to the New Jerusalem again. She is positioned over the North Pole and punches the snow globe covering over the earth. It shatters.

To her left is the treasury room with the glass door surrounded by crystalline snow that sparks like the iridescent colors on Melchizedek’s robe. The vault is behind the crystal-clear door. The Bride of the Messiah is instructed (as they look at the perfect heart of the Father) to insert the ancient skeleton key and pull the door open towards the Bride. The Bride feels a chill and a rush at the same time when this ancient treasure door is swung open.

As the treasures float out, we understand that these are the true treasures of pure worship. Gems of every type and color emit glorious true worship. THE TREASURIES OF ICE AND SNOW ARE TRUE WORSHIP. Each facet is as unique as each snowflake. Each facet is eternal and amplifies His sound.

“Though your sins are like scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are as red as crimson, they will be like wool” (Isaiah 1:18 HCSB). Behold, the true riches of pure worship from dedicated hearts. Behold, Melchizedek’s white-faceted robe will eternally replace Santa Claus’s defiled red robe.

I’ve been to the future where Christmas is dead, and only Yeshua is highly exalted in His Winter Oneder-land.

Give em heaven!!!
