By request, I share the following excerpt from my book SANTA-TIZING: What’s wrong with Christmas and how to clean it up, page 109-110:
“Although Tophet is a different high place than Solomon’s Mount Olivet, they both were places where idols were exalted and God’s children were sacrificed to the same bloodthirsty gods east of Jerusalem.
Do you think that it’s a mere coincidence that enthroned Chemosh (worshiped by the Moabites), Mithra (from Persia, worshiped in Rome), and Tammuz (of Babylon fame) wore the same Phrygian cap as Santa Claus? In Michael Rood’s enlightening book The Pagan-Christian Connection Exposed, Truth vs. Tradition, he expounds that Chemosh was the pagan god of prosperity that was the same cast iron, pot-bellied god of their kin, the Ammonites, who was worshiped by the name of Molech or Moloch. At the time of the winter solstice on the ancient calendar, they had a public child mass. “Mass” literally means sacrifice in this context. “The priests stoked the iron image of the enthroned Chemosh with wood and burning pitch, which turned the idol into a cherry red furnace. Moabite people made long lists of their desires, and recited them to the god of prosperity just before they put their infant children into the red-hot lap of their god with his Phrygian cap. As the babies were incinerated during the December 25th child mass, the people were assured that their sacrifices would be rewarded in the coming year.” Michael Rood has an interesting perspective: “A month before the birthday of Tammuz (December 25th) we have our children make endless lists to a cherry-red pot-bellied god of prosperity, and then we place our terrified children in the lap of this god who wears his Phrygian cap and sits on his throne in the shopping malls.” Minimally, I believe that each Christmas we currently sacrifice our children’s well-being to gods of prosperity, creating the unrighteous dispositions of being demanding and spoiled. Am I the only parent to experience my child’s ungrateful complaint, “Is that it?” when he had just opened a boatload of gifts?
Baal or Moloch or Chemosh—the name may change, but their bloodthirsty appetite for the most acceptable offering of infants does not. “We have ample and melancholy evidence on this subject from the records of antiquity.” It was believed that human sacrifice to Baal held the key to prosperity. Therefore, selfish people desiring to live in ease brought their firstborn child to the high priest, where scholars say the child would be offered as a burnt offering to the deity. Recently, archaeologists unearthed a Baal cemetery containing the remains of more than twenty thousand children. “I will cut off from this place every remnant of Baal . . . those who bow down and swear by the LORD and who also swear by Molech” (Zeph. 1:4-5). The late Reverend Hislop’s extensive research led him to conclude: “Moloch and Roman Saturn have the same bloody character.” This fact is important in our analysis of Christmas being the golden calf of America. As you will discover later in this chapter, the church of Rome was unable to eradicate the heathen celebration of Saturnalia, so they slightly modified it and designated a Feast of the Nativity to be observed. ”
If you have a bridal heart, this book is for you!!! It covers this subject to the nth-degree => https://www.amazon.com/SANTA-TIZING-Whats-wrong-Christmas-clean/dp/1607911159/

The book is a must read. I waited so long in my life to finally have the answers I always wondered about. I knew those answers were out there but never thought I would ever find them till now. It’s all there, it’s profoundly accurate and laid out for the reader to understand. It all makes so much sense to me now!

As I was reading the book, I felt like I was listening to you speak out the words of Yahweh. I could actually see you in the spirit speaking the very words as I was reading them, and the presence of Holy Spirit was breathing life. It brought the very presence of the Lord into the room. I have read many books and never felt that before, because this is shattering darkness and lies and is setting the captives free. The pages … are all wrapped up in love, just like Yeshua would have it told. You are so real and I did not know what to expect when I ordered the book but I knew I had to read it. I thought it would be just a little testimony and then lots of historical facts with scripture to back it up but it is way more than I thought it would be. Anyone reading it will be gripped by it.
I honor you SO MUCH Robin! Santa-tizing spoke to deep feelings inside my heart and soul…and made me SO MAD to be honest! What a sneaky history we have! But what an honor to be called back into the fullness of Truth! It’s a joy to say yes. I don’t look at it as giving up Christmas, but picking up an even better holiday.
Santa-tizing is the perfect book for anyone who is frustrated with the secularization of Christmas and/or wants to delve deeper into its history. Robin Main presents the facts from a point of view that is simultaneously expert and deeply personal. She discusses the history of Christmas in impressive detail and tells the story of her own personal decision to lay down the holiday. Whether you agree with her final conclusions or not, Santa-tizing will impact you and will be a book that you return to time and again as a reference source.

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.
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 journey to becoming His Bride. Please see https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/03/09/feast-of-esther-is-a-bridal-feast/ 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 the Lord 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; Ephesians 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). This is the Metatron form of the Messiah with the fully mature Head of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) connected to the fully mature members of His Body.
“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 and 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 article, which I posted was about the look and sound of PERFECT of the Order of Melchizedek (https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/06/23/practical-keys-to-unlocking-melchizedek-part-8-lifes-pure-perfection/). 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.

Come walk on the kingdom side in an examination of America’s most loved holiday. Critical thinking is a must while looking through this lens of history and Scripture.

Did you know that there is a divine right alignment when we give according to our Heavenly Father’s heart during the three major Biblical Feasts: Pesach (Passover), Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) and Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles)?
According to some Hebrew sources, on Sukkot if you give a freewill offering according to the leading of the Lord, it is counted for one year and a reflection of what our Father pours on you based on this offering. Think of it like a window opens over your life from Heaven.
Personally, it causes me to reflect about what truly counts in life.
With each Biblical Feast, a new portal (or heavenly window) opens that enables a greater ease than “normal” to enter and inherit His Kingdom in a greater measure here on earth, as in heaven. These are special grace(s) related to the themes/ principles of each feast.
Yeshua (i.e. Jesus) has not done away with Biblical Feasts, He fulfilled them (and is still fulfilling them through His Body until His second coming and beyond) – See Matthew 5:17. Any feast that is articulated in Scripture is a Biblical Feast. The Feasts of the Lord are the seven listed in Leviticus 23. Our Beloved told me last year: “Just as the Spirit of the Living God has seven flows that manifests in nine fruits and gifts, so do the Feasts of the Lord.” (Please refer to https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/03/09/feast-of-esther-is-a-bridal-feast/) I could speak about this subject forever, and I’ve written about it extensively after studying it full-time for over 15-20 years. Here’s a short post that explains more: https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/10/04/back-to-the-future-basics-yeshuas-biblical-feasts/
Probably most significance to this particular post is:
 The Feast of Tabernacles (i.e., Sukkot) is a Feast Forever. God’s people will celebrate this one and at least two others eternally (See Leviticus 23:41).
 The primitive root for His Feasts in 2 Chronicles 8:13 is the Hebrew word ya-ad. Significantly, this is the term used for Adam knowing Eve intimately. Ya-ad has a most profound message in regard to the Lord’s Biblical Feasts. It implies that yood-hey-shin-vav-hey is summoning His people to meet Him at His stated time, so He can direct us into a certain position to engage us for marriage (i.e., to be betrothed). HIS FEASTS ARE ALL ABOUT US BEING/BECOMING HIS PURE AND SPOTLESS BRIDE.
 In regard to a freewill offering to honor Him during one of His Feasts. Deuteronomy 6:5 tells us: “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.” Series of three in Scripture show people how to mature into the image of Christ (I like to say “move unto perfection”). They are listed from easiest to hardest. The hardest way to love Y-H-Shin-V-H is with all your strength. It’s the Bridal form of loving God. If you break “strength” down, it basically means loving God with all your resources. Here’s an article about it => http://wp.me/p158HG-sS.
Biblical Feasts are something that the enemy has stolen from most Christians, and we must seize the day and take it back for Bridal hearts everywhere!

A young bull is sacrificed in the second reference to the corporate portal called the The Door of the Tabernacle of the Congregation.
“1 And this is the thing that thou shalt do unto them to hallow them, to minister unto Me in the priest’s office: Take one young bullock, and two rams without blemish… 9 and the priest’s office shall be theirs for a perpetual statute: and thou shalt consecrate Aaron and his sons. 10 And thou shalt cause a bullock to be brought before the Tabernacle of the Congregation; and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands upon the head of the bullock. 11 And thou shalt kill the bullock before the LORD, by the DOOR OF THE TABERNACLE OF THE CONGREGATION” (Exodus 29:1,9-11 KJV).
This speaks of a profound truth for those who are eternal royal priests made after the Order of Melchizedek. When maturing sons of the Living God ascend and meet at the corporate heavenly portal, a sacrifice of laughter is required. Many moons ago, Yeshua whispered to me: “The one to be sacrificed is called laughter.” Remember that Issac’s name means laughter and he was 36 years old when 137-year-old Abraham when they went up Mount Mariah to worship the Lord (See Genesis 22).
When Aaron and his sons were consecrated (being dedicated perpetually) as priests, they were required to lean with their entire strength on a young bull in order to confess their sins, which is a picture the most difficult form of love… to love God with all one’s strength (Deut 6:5). This sacrifice of the one young bull was said to atone for their involvement in the sin of the Golden Calf.
In this Kingdom Day, eternal priests made after the Order of Melchizedek will also confess their sin for involvement with the Golden Calf in our day. This “golden” form of worship is what the Corporate One New Man in Christ will literally kill (sacrifice) at the Door of the Tabernacle of the Congregation in order to resonate at the same frequency of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ). Those who press on to the mark of the highest calling in Christ will completely die to all Golden Calf attachments at the Door of the Tabernacle of the Congregation. Greater holiness is required more and more as we ascend corporately.

Once Abram victoriously conquered the Babylonian Kings in Genesis 14, the King of Sodom went out to meet him at the Kings’ Valley (the valley of Shaveh). He then escorted Abram to the city of Salem , i.e., ancient Jerusalem, where they were met by its king – Melchizedek.
The Jewish Sages identify this Melchizedek as Shem, the righteous son of Noah. Initially, I dismissed Shem being Melchizedek, because I was taught that Melchizedek had some distinct qualities that I had assumed Shem did not have. Most notably, Hebrews 7:3 tells us that Melchizedek had no mother, no father, no beginning of time, and no end of time; and in my limited mindset I reasoned that Shem had all of these because he was a man on this earth. Note: The basis of the priesthood of Melchizedek is everlasting life (Hebrews 7:16).
When the Holy Spirit prompted me to reexamine what I believed, I was amazed at what was revealed. First of all, the Hebrews probably would have kept the best track of their own history. Why was Shem identified with Melchizedek? Just like Nimrod is identified with King Amraphel,* so is Shem recognized as Melchizedek. When people are associated with different names, each name signifies a different part of their nature.
Scripture appears to be silent about many facts about Melchizedek when, in fact, there are many keys to unlock the heaven-on-earth reality of the Order of Melchizedek that are hidden and encoded in Scripture, which are now being unveiled by His spirit of revelation and understanding.
Please note that Yeshua is not Melchizedek, but the High Priest of the Order of Melchizedek. How do I know this? I had a third-heaven experience with both Yeshua and Melchizedek on January 19, 2012. As I was preparing for a time of deliverance for a pastor who had an Assignment of Death against him, I was soaking in His Presence in a bubbling eddy of the River of Life when all of sudden Yeshua pulled me down to the bottom. There He opened a golden door. We entered this long hallway with unusual portraits of military personnel on the wall. A regal gentleman came up to us. He had on a golden breastplate of the priesthood of the Order of Melchizedek with triple concentric circles. I saw the label “General,” as a nameplate on the upper left side of his golden breastplate and it had five stars under it. Yeshua personally introduced me to His highest general of the Melchizedek Order – Shem. He was extremely handsome and eternally young, yet his hair had a touch of gray, as a symbol of his wisdom. Yeshua, Shem and I talked very casually for a while when Yeshua announced that they were both going to commission me into the Order of Melchizedek. They both placed a golden triple concentric circle gem-encrusted breastplate on me. It was just like Shem’s, except under the nameplate “General” was one star. Then Yeshua placed His hand on my heart and Shem placed his hand over Yeshua’s hand to impart to me and commission me into the Eternal Royal Order of Melchizedek. Already overwhelmed at this wonderful surprise, Yeshua started giving me other gifts, including a golden shepherd’s staff.
Please note a couple things. The purpose of the Order of Melchizedek is to minister to God, and primarily flows from heaven to earth out of that reality. Only the King of Kings Himself can commission those in this royal priesthood, which is a military order. Yeshua is the pattern we have of those in the Order of Melchizedek because Melchizedek is made like unto the Son of God (Hebrews 7:3). Due to the priesthood of Melchizedek being based on everlasting life, it is the only legal voice in the universe, besides God Himself, that can overcome an Assignment of Death, which is a spirit of death released that will manifest in a person’s death if not nullified.
Shem being Melchizedek of Genesis 14 fame makes sense on several levels. Shem was known as the righteous son of Noah; therefore, it’s not much of a stretch to believe he could have been called a King of Righteousness. Just as the Messiah can sit on the Throne of David, He can be High Priest of the Order of Melchizedek. Especially when we consider that Shem led the overthrow of the apostate world ruler of his time (Nimrod), we can extrapolate that Shem easily could have been exalted to such a status himself. Even though Shem was Abraham’s great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandfather, the priesthood of Melchizedek is earned, not inherited. Don’t get me wrong, just as Abraham believed and was counted righteous, so did Melchizedek. In fact, Melchizedek must have epitomized a priesthood of believers who draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith (Hebrews 10:22), else he would not have been considered righteous.

* King of Elam is identified as Shem’s son. Although Chedorlaomer was the leader of the Babylonian alliance,the king of Shinar – Amraphel – is mentioned first in the Bible (Gen 14:1), because he was the senior king of the four. Significantly, the Jewish Sages identify Amraphel as Nimrod. The Jewish Encyclopedia shares: “Some say Amraphel was his real name, and he was called Nimrod – ‘the chief rebel’ as leader of the tower-builders, ‘who led the world rebellion’ against heaven’s Ruler. Others say Nimrod was his real name, and he was called Amraphel as the one who commanded them to cast Abraham into the fire [Robin’s note: Fantastic story about Abram miraculously surviving being thrown in a fiery furnace by Nimrod long before Shadrach, Meshach and Abedigo].” One of the etymologies for the name Amraphel is explained as that of one whose “command brought darkness [destruction] on the world.” Abraham was thrown into the furnace because he refused to accept the worship of idols. Today, we are called to the same stance – refusing to accept idol worship and rising up to the challenge of the kingdom of heaven, suffering violence in our own lives and taking it back by force.

FYI: When you purchase STM resources, you are supporting the Lord’s work through Sapphire Throne Ministries. Just so you know, it’s cheaper to order directly from the STM Website due to exorbitant Amazon fees; however, STM books and Hebrew Living Letters Flash Cards are also available via Amazon.
