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/.

4 ABOMINATIONS DETERMINE DEGREE OF THE 4 FACES OF GOD

4-lc

“Son of man, do you see what they are doing … things that will drive Me far from My sanctuary?” (Ezekiel 8:6). Do you see? Do you want to see what drives God from His Dwelling Place – you? Do you want God to simply visit you? Or do you want to dwell with God?

The four idolatrous practices listed in Ezekiel 8:3-5, 9-12, 14, 16 originate in Babylon, and the Bible says that they are detestable to God. All four of these idolatrous practices have to do with pure worship. The fourth and most detestable practice in His eyes that drives Him far from His sanctuary maps to our modern-day Christmas: “So He brought me into the inner court of the LORD’s house; and there, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men with their backs toward the temple of the LORD and their faces toward the east, and they were worshiping the sun toward the east” (Ezekiel 8:16 NKJV). These twenty-five or so men knew and loved the Lord; yet they still grievously bowed down to and worshiped the sun, whether they acknowledged the fact or not.

“About 25 men”… Usually Scripture doesn’t approximate, so what does “about 25” mean? ABOUT 25 is a Bible Code that’s communicating that IT’S ABOUT 25… IT’S ABOUT DECEMBER 25TH. Throughout antiquity, all sun gods across all cultures celebrated the sun gods’ birthday on the ancient winter solstice – December 25th – before the Roman shift in time. The Catholic Encyclopedia even documents that The Nativity or Mithra’s Winter Festival has a strong claim on our December 25th date. Never mind the fact that Constantine had the Vatican built atop the hill where the Mithra’s cult worshiped the sun. History records that it had become common practice in the fifth century for worshipers 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.

Our Modern-day Christmas has two immediate predecessors:

[1] Christmas Day – Mithra’s Winter Festival call “The Nativity” or “The Nativity of the Sun,” or “The Nativity of the Unconquered Sun” (i.e. Sol Invictis)

[2] Christmas Season – Roman Saturnalia, which was the worship of pagan god Saturn. Did you know that the Golden Calf that Aaron fabricated represented the divinity of the ancient Chaldean God Saturn? Christmas is the Golden Calf.

The pagans in the fourth century recognized their own solar cults in the church’s adoption of the Nativity of the Unconquered Sun (Mithra’s Winter Festival). They recognized the church assimilation of their pagan practices in the orienting cathedrals to the east, worshiping on “sun day,” and celebrating the birth of the sun god deity at the Winter Solstice.

Yeshua told me: “Christmas will be the golden calf of America,” which means it’s idolatry in His eyes. The Lord has given each of us the responsibility to prepare a place for Him: “When He appears, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is. Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure” (1 John 3:2-3). His shekinah glory cannot dwell where there is idolatry; therefore, His dwelling presence cannot, and will not, coexist with this golden calf we call Christmas. Idolatry is the crux that determines whether His shekinah glory will merely visit His people or dwell among them… and it is essential to lay down all idolatry to take on your cherubic nature, like Enoch did. If it’s your heart-of-hearts to participate in the fullness of God’s glorious Melchizedek and Bridal companies, you will have to pass through this fire.

The four abominations in Ezekiel chapter 8 that drive God’s Dwelling Presence far from His sanctuary actually map to the four faces of God (Melchizedek). To the degree that we compromise with the four abominations is the degree that we don’t operate in the fullness of the Cherubim Classification of the Order of Melchizedek.

Christmas Day is rooted in the sun god worship of Mithra (Mithraism). It is not a coincidence that the centerpiece of every Mithraeum was a sculptor of Mithras killing a sacred bull. The Worship of Mithra compromises the face of the ox – the Father – which the Cherubim (Corporate Order of Melchizedek) is supposed to operate in. The Pattern Son – Yeshua – descended and ascended to take captivity captive. Each Melchizedek Priest will have to bring this Christmas Worship issue before the Lord when they descend into the throne within, then once rectified they can ascend to re-establish the Face of the Ox (Father God) to be made whole.

Christmas is the ultimate crux for God’s Dwelling Presence that will determine if you will take on your cherubic nature, or not. And… you get to choose. In the Third Book of Enoch, we are told that the splendor of His Shekinah was on earth until the time of the generation of Enosh when they erected idols in every quarter of the world and brought bought down THE SUN, the moon, planets and constellations and placed them before their idols.

We know that the manifest dwelling presence of God (Shekinah) left the Christian church when the pagan holidays were assimilated into it. Historical proof is seen in the departure of daily miracles from among them. Scriptural proof is spelled out in Ezekiel 8-11.

CRUX FOR GOD’S DWELLING PRESENCE

Glory

In the beginning God created a pristine garden and a perfect man (Genesis 1:26). This perfect pre-fallen man was a tri-parti being: body, soul and spirit. His perfection was a body clothed in righteousness, a soul that housed the dwelling place of God, and a spirit that constantly communicated with his Creator. Take note, because His people are returning to this heavenly sweet spot, which is our primordial state AS IT WAS IN THE BEGINNING.

Let’s review the “cherubim” classification for the New Living Creature of Melchizedek before we go into how the shekinah glory (His Dwelling Presence) remains in you and me. Please refer to the TAKING ON COMMON UNION series: http://wp.me/p2k1dQ-i9.

Scripture tells us that CHERUBIM:

[1] Mark the spot for us returning to our pristine primeval state. They stand at the entrance of the Garden of Eden with a flaming sword which turns every way to keep the way to the Tree of Life (Gen. 3:24).

[2] Mark the Dwelling Place of God, because He “dwells between the cherubim” (Psa. 80:1). In God’s Dwelling Places that have been built here on earth (Tabernacle, Temple and the New Jerusalem), cherubim are the most frequently sculpted, engraved, & embroidered figures made according to a heavenly pattern given by the Lord Himself (Exo. 26:1, 26:31-33; 36:8, 36:35; 1 Kings 6:29-35; 2 Chron. 3:7).

[3] Carriers of God’s throne, which is the seat of His divine glory as well as His royal power (1 Chron. 28:18). Cherubim make up the foundation of His fiery chariot throne that bears God’s Kingdom here on earth (Dan. 7:9; Ezek. 1:22-28; 10:1). God’s royal priests set out for the goal of the high calling to become just like Yeshua — the High Priest of the eternal order of Melchizedek. His Melchizedek Company is the Messenger that will facilitate the kingdoms of this world becoming the kingdoms of our Lord, and His Christ (Rev. 11:15).

This is the context that is essential to understanding the requirements needed for the Lord’s special dwelling presence to stay. His shekinah literally requires holiness. People have tried to boil holiness down to a formula of dos and don’ts, but that will always miss the mark because holiness is a love issue. Doing what Scripture prescribes for holiness taps into the prerequisites for which God’s Presence can dwell among us, but we must always take into account that His people’s hearts must be totally engaged when we seek to lovingly obey Him.

Believers in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob need to consider that the shekinah glory dwelt in the midst of Israel for generations: “The people of Israel. Theirs is the adoption of sons; theirs the divine glory…” (Rom. 9:4). First century believers understood the biblical holiness requirements, which facilitated God’s dwelling presence. When the Holy Spirit fell at Pentecost, the church experienced His manifest presence. They additionally sustained a multi-generational revival for more than three hundred years, because they understood how to live in God’s presence.

For the church to sustain His awe-filled presence today, we need to accurately grasp His minimum requirements for purity and their relevant application in our lives. Please let us learn from history, so we don’t repeat it. God’s dwelling presence departed from the Christian church when the pagan holidays were assimilated into it. Historical proof is seen in the departure of daily miracles from among them. Scriptural proof is spelled out in Ezekiel 8-11. We are not going into this passage in detail today. Please note, as you personally read it that God’s presence slowly and sorrowfully departed, for He longs for His people to repent so His presence may return or remain.

“Son of man, do you see what they are doing … things that will drive Me far from My sanctuary?” (Ezekiel 8:6). The four idolatrous practices listed in Ezekiel 8:3-5, 9-12, 14, 16 originated in Babylon, and the Bible says that they are detestable to God. BTW – These all have to do with pure worship. Today, we will only peek at the fourth and most detestable practice in His eyes that drives Him far from His sanctuary: “So He brought me into the inner court of the LORD’s house; and there, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men with their backs toward the temple of the LORD and their faces toward the east, and they were worshiping the sun toward the east” (Ezekiel 8:16 NKJV).

The fourth and most detestable practice was performed in the inner court of the house of the Lord between the porch and the altar. The inner court symbolizes those who are intimately acquainted with God. The porch is a place of traversing back and forth. It can be akin to a heaven and earth connection. The altar was a platform of sacrificial worship, where worshipers endeavored to meet with their God. So these twenty-five or so men, who were bowing down to the sun with their backs toward the temple of the Lord, were His close companions. They were people who knew and loved the Lord; yet they still grievously bowed down to and worshiped the sun, whether they acknowledged the fact or not.

It is not until Ezekiel 9:3 that the departure of God’s presence begins. His shekinah glory moves over His fiery chariot throne – a set apart remnant of His people. Then, His shekinah glory is carried by the Living Creature from the inner court to the threshold of His sanctuary. The Lord hesitates there to see if His people will notice His leaving. Will they repent and welcome His manifest presence back? He waits, then in Ezekiel 10:19 God’s glory moves further away to the eastern gate. He waits again. His people still won’t repent of their idolatry, so God’s shekinah glory moves out of Jerusalem (the city of our God) across the Kidron Valley to the Mount of Olives (Ezekiel 11:23). Then God waits again for the people to turn from their idols. Where’s does Scripture say that the Lord will return? The Mount of Olives both spiritually and physically (Zechariah 14:4).

The pagans in the fourth century recognized their own solar cults in the church’s adoption of the Nativity of the Unconquered Sun (Mithra’s Winter Festival). They recognized the church assimilation of their pagan practices in the orienting cathedrals to the east, worshiping on “sun day,” and celebrating the birth of the sun god deity at the Winter Solstice. Throughout antiquity, all sun gods across all cultures celebrated their birthday on the ancient winter solstice – December 25th – before the Roman shift in time. The Catholic Encyclopedia even documents that the Nativity or Mithra’s Winter Festival has a strong claim on our December 25th date. Never mind the fact that Constantine had the Vatican built atop the hill where the Mithras cult worshiped the sun. History records that it had become common practice in the fifth century for worshipers 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. See Ezekiel 8:16.

When the Lord says that “Christmas will be the golden calf of America,” He is telling us that it is idolatry in His eyes. The Lord has given each of us the responsibility to prepare a place for Him: “Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure” (1 John 3:3). His shekinah glory cannot dwell where there is idolatry; therefore, His dwelling presence can not, and will not, coexist with this golden calf we call Christmas. Idolatry is the crux that determines whether His shekinah glory will merely visit His people or dwell among them. If it’s your heart-of-hearts to be part of Yah’s glorious Melchizedek and Bridal companies, you will have to pass through this fire.
