“Our Christmas story was packaged for us from Hollywood and delivered as a pizza to our pulpits and we served it to our congregants while it was still hot. Yet when you review it; 90 percent of what we say has not been mentioned in the Bible.
We have a responsibility to keep the story of Birth of Jesus Holy.
Why do we preach on the Christmas day a story that we are told by the World and not read the Bible before us?
We tell a story which the business has packaged and made copyright we are to keep it the way it is.
This story is the only best selling false bible story in the whole world which its profits do not go to church.
To the degree that this story has become polluted without the saints worrying about correcting it; is the reflection of how far we have gone with losing the Gospel message.”
This was my facebook message today on Christmas morning.
Have you ever thought how Jews and Muslims would react had Santa infiltrated their religion?
What is the reason Santa had it so easy to infiltrate such a vital part of our Gospel and be allowed to be its Ambassador?
Imagine any of the Holy Days of Jews or Muslims given an extra mythical and highly commercial character like our Santa to represent it.
Well Jews and Muslims keep their scriptures holy. The other thing is that they love their doctrine and do not compromise about it. That is why there are not many versions of their scriptures.
One more thing; Jews and Muslims are more literate in their scriptures far more than we are in ours. That is why we have allowed Hollywood to be an extra Bible Version which is widely used far more than any version.
People who love the Word and read the Bible will know very early that there is something very sinister about the message of the gospel according to Hollywood Santa.
I want to share with you the seriousness of the message of the Birth of Christ as I close this installment.
Luke 2:10-11King James Version (KJV)
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
Now why do you think it is called Good News by the angel? This is the Gospel we need to preach:
1. The Birth of Christ
2. The Crucifixion, death and resurrection of Christ
3. The Coming of Christ
Now one third of this Gospel has been given to the Shepherds who watch Flock by night. The Birth of Christ.
Maybe you have become too famous to preach a pure doctrine concerning the Birth of Christ; but this is an apostolic and prophetic responsibility to protect this truth.
How come did we ask Santa and Hollywood to take over from here?
If the message of the previous coming of Christ (His Birth) has been so much commercialized and distorted; what makes you think His Second Coming will not be equally fictionalized and commercialized?
What is your responsibility in keeping this message pure? Don’t you think others have become even more distanced from the gospel because of the good job of your friend Santa?
Where is the money that Santa makes in these sermons you allowed him to preach concerning The Birth of Christ?
I repent from the ignorance I carried all these years concerning Christmas. I repent from the damage I have caused from allowing this culture to continue as it has done. I return from the posh palaces of Herod and Jerusalem of my ministry. I humbly return to Bethlehem the House of Bread and the Temple of the Seed. I become a Shepherd hidden by the countryside of Bethlehem so that I will receive the pure message of His Birth once again.
