Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free – john.8:32.
What you are about to read in this publication is inspired by the Spirit of Truth, to correct all the erroneous idolatrous celebrations prevalent in some churches and amongst some Christians, to reprove the church of wrong doctrines, wherever they exist, and to instruct Churches to do the right thing, so that the Church can be made ready for the rapture. Some of these erroneous and idolatrous celebrations include amongst others, the observance of days, months, times and years, which Apostle Paul referred to as the weak and beggarly elements, which have plunged most Christians and some churches into bondage.
In Galatians.4:9-10, Paul lamented, “But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage. Ye Observe Days And Months, And Times, And Years.”
These aforementioned seasons of the year, are often accompanied by worldly celebrations, revellings, banquettings, drunkenness, and all sorts of immoral practices. Christmas celebrations, Easter celebrations, New Year celebrations, Jubilee celebration, Yearly (Annual) thanksgiving celebrations, birth-day celebrations, Valentine day celebrations, are some of these beggarly elements. These days, months, times, and years, are not to be observed by heaven- bound Christians.
Jesus Christ never in His life time observed the day of His birth, talkless of celebrating it: neither did any of His followers, disciples or apostles observe the day or month, or year of their birth. God, in His wisdom kept the exact day of the birth of Jesus, from mankind, because God knew the hearts of all men, that men would have idolized the day. Even as at that, the devil, that deceiveth the whole world, yet, set aside a fictitious date that has no biblical proof under the guise of “Christmas”, which is widely celebrated to-day. Christmas celebration is the worship of the devil himself. “Christmas” has nothing to do with Jesus Christ. This is what Apostle Paul, called another Jesus, another spirit, the spirit of Xmas season as written in 2 Corinthians.11:3-4. The devil that deceives the whole world has deceived and corrupted the minds of Christians, all over the world to believe in the ‘Jesus’ of “Christmas” season. There is nowhere in the bible where Jesus Christ commanded Christians to remember Him, by observing the “date” of His birth, which of course is unknown. The only thing Jesus commanded all Christians to do in remembrance of Him is the Institution of the Lord’s Supper, in 1 Corinthians.11:24-26.
This also applies to individual birth-day celebrations prevalent amongst Christians. It is not a “Day” to be remembered and observed by Christians who have known the Truth and are heaven-conscious. It is the day, we were conceived in sin in our mothers’ wombs which can be found written in Psalm.51:5, “Behold I was shapen in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.” This explains why Job and prophet Jeremiah regretted the day of their birth, and even cursed it – “Cursed be the day wherein
I was born: Let not the day wherein my mother bare me be blessed” – Jeremiah.20:14. In Ecclesiastes.7:1, the Preacher, summarized it all by saying, “A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one’s birth. It is not a day to be remembered, or to be observed by Christians. If any day is to be remembered at all, it is the day we were born again, even then it should not be with feasting.
The two Kings in the bible, who observed the days of their birth, were pagan kings and the devil used them to commit murder. These two pagan kings, king Pharaoh of Egypt, who killed his chief baker, by hanging, and king Herod, who ordered the killing of John the Baptist, during these “birth-day” celebrations. The devil who is a murderer, was the master of ceremonies in these two birth-day celebrations, and he will always be the master of ceremonies in any birth-day celebration, to kill the souls of careless Christians, who observe and celebrate the days of their birth. You can read the stories of these pagan kings in Genesis.40:20-22, and Mark.6:21-28.
