CHRISTMAS AND "BABYLON THE GREAT"

CHRISTMAS AND "BABYLON THE GREAT"


What is the Connection ?
The Bible identifies False Religion as a woman called "Babylon The Great". Her religious doctrines, teachings, beliefs and Holidays are based upon the Center from which all False Religion began, "Ancient Babylon". It was under the influence of NIMROD - who declared himself to be god - that all these false teachings began. For he was a mighty hunter in opposition to Jehovah God, our Creator. "...Nimrod....He displayed himself a mighty hunter in opposition to Jehovah...." (Genesis 10:8,9)(NWT)

"...Nimrod....He was a mighty hunter before Jehovah..." (Genesis 10:8,9)(ASV)-BibleGateway "Now it was Nimrod who excited them to such an affront and contempt of God." -Josephus (c. 37 c. 100 AD/CE), "His name is Nimrod, It means the rebel, and is evidently meant to designate the nature of the man. He was the first specimen of giant tyranny after the flood. His Defiance of Jehovah was perpetrated in wickedness and ambition under the very eye of Jehovah. Nimrod's assumptions were religious as well as political. Nimrod presented himself not only for obedience but also for worship. His awful greatness was of ambitious rebellion, apostasy and defiance of Jehovah. And as it was Babel that was the beginning of his empire, so is Babylon the great its consummation and close." -Nimrod by Horatius Bonar 1808-1889 "As the people increased in number, the Way of Jehovah was corrupted and a principal figure in those days was Nimrod, the grandson of Ham described as a mighty hunter before Jehovah. The word 'before' used in this sense means, 'totally antagonistic to Jehovah.' We celebrate Christmas on a date which coincides with the birthday of Nimrod - the villainous king of ancient Babylon." -The Ensign Trust VOLUME I No.2 - JUNE 1999 'NARROW IS THE WAY' By Harry Lancaster Amont those false teachings that are part of "Babylon The Great" - are the "trinity" doctrine, Hellfire torment, Easter, and Christmas. This article is focusing upon the Christmas Holiday and it's Nimrod-connection. Indeed, even scholars recognize that Christmas came from Ancient Babylon,

and has no connection with the Birth of Christ who was born during a much warmer season.

Scholars Identify "Babylon The Great" with CHRISTMAS


"Nimrod started the great organized worldly apostasy from God that has dominated this world until now. Nimrod married his own mother, whose name was Semiramis. After Nimrod's death, his so-called mother-wife, Semiramis, propagated the evil doctrine of the survival of Nimrod as a spirit being. She claimed a full-grown evergreen tree sprang overnight from a dead tree stump, which symbolized the springing forth unto new life of the dead Nimrod. On each anniversary of his birth, she claimed, Nimrod would visit the evergreen tree and leave gifts upon it. December 25th, was the birthday of Nimrod. This is the real origin of the Christmas tree." -The Plain Truth About Christmas by David J. Stewart | December 24th, 2005 "The real origin of Christmas goes back to ancient Babylon. It is bound up in the organized apostasy with which Satan has gripped a deceived world these many centuries! In Egypt, it was always believed that the son of Iris (Egyptian name for "Queen of Heaven") was born December 25th. Semiramis also bore the title "Queen of Heaven" - and she was Nimrod's mother. Paganism celebrated this famous birthday over most of the known world for centuries before the birth of Christ." -The Plain Truth About Christmas by David J. Stewart | December 24th, 2005 "Christmas as a pagan holiday traces back thousands of years before to a man named Nimrod, founder of ancient pagan Babylon." -Christmas Unwrapped From the History Channel by Alan Mansager "Babylons false worship is found today in every nation and in some aspect in nearly all religions, including present day christianity." -Christmas Unwrapped

From the History Channel by Alan Mansager "Egyptian and Babylonian antiquities identify Nimrod's mother as Semiramis, and his birthday was celebrated on 25th December." -The True Meaning of Christmas by Mike Gascoigne; 1996 "Thus began the worship of Semiramis and the child-god, and the whole paraphanalia of the Babylonian religious system." -The True Meaning of Christmas by Mike Gascoigne; 1996 "The Roman Pagans used to celebrate the birthday of their child-god on 25th December, and the Roman Catholic Church sought to win over as many people as possible to nominal Catholicism by proclaiming the same day to be the birthday of Jesus. So the Pagans had no difficulty worshipping the Catholic Madonna and child. They were seen as yet another manifestation of the Babylonian Queen of Heaven (Semiramis)and her son (Nimrod). The Pagans made no compromises, they didn't need to, they just continued their Pagan worship within the church." -The True Meaning of Christmas by Mike Gascoigne; 1996 "While it's easy to knock the Catholic Church because of their Maryolatry, the Protestants cannot be left off the hook. The Protestant Reformation dispensed with only a part of the Babylonian system of worship. The celebration of Christmas, inherited from the Roman Catholic Church, via Pagan Rome, via Egypt, via Babylon, is still practiced as the most important event in the Protestant Christian calendar, so from that point of view the Protestants are as much into Paganism as the Catholics." -The True Meaning of Christmas by Mike Gascoigne; 1996 "The Christmas tree is specifically a Babylonian symbol. On Christmas Eve the Yule Log is thrown onto the fire. On Christmas Day there is the tree, covered in decorations and surrounded with presents,

representing the resurrected Nimrod of Babylon." -The True Meaning of Christmas by Mike Gascoigne; 1996 "FOR MANY years Christmas and other major holidays, such as Easter, Halloween, etc., have been portrayed as having a Christian origin, yet they all have their common origins in Ancient Babylon." -The True Origin of Christmas and Other Holidays Who Was Really Born On December 25? The Gilead Institute of America "December 25 was highly honored and recognized by Nimrod's supporters...Many centuries later this pagan custom was "Christianized" as being the birthday of Christ." -The True Origin of Christmas and Other Holidays Who Was Really Born On December 25? The Gilead Institute of America "Today, the celebrated holiday known as Christmas, will actually find its roots in ancient Babylon. Christmas is a pagan holiday, which was first formed by Semiramis, the mother-wife of Nimrod. This became a holiday after Semiramis indoctrinated it into the Babylonish government upon the death of Nimrod." -Seven Seals Publication The True History of Christmas An Excerpt From: The Biography of Noble Drew Ali The Exhuming Of A Nation "Nimrods birth date was December 25th. This never was the birth date of Jesus, son of Joseph by Mary; nor does any Holy Book support this idea." -Seven Seals Publication The True History of Christmas An Excerpt From: The Biography of Noble Drew Ali The Exhuming Of A Nation "The Christmas tree custom is also a pagan tradition stemming from Nimrods mother in her attempt to immortalize her son." -Seven Seals Publication

The True History of Christmas An Excerpt From: The Biography of Noble Drew Ali The Exhuming Of A Nation "December 25th was celebrated as Baal or Nimrod's birthday. By tradition, this birthday celebration became an integral part of every human culture, based on this pagan idolatry. Generally, all mankind is fast asleep, dreaming this old Babylonian dream. Christmas was an attempt by Catholicism to revise and adopt this paganism." -The Story Of Nimrod, As It Relates To Christmas And Easter by Wilhelm J Wolfaardt "Scripture itself demands that we observe the Messiah's death, and not His birth. But, since the pagan mind was so oriented around fertility and birth, it developed the way we see it today, blending the most important features of pagan interpretation. "Babel, the Great Mother of Harlots and of the Abominations of the Earth" -- has intoxicated the masses." -The Story Of Nimrod, As It Relates To Christmas And Easter by Wilhelm J Wolfaardt "Christmas as a pagan holiday traces back thousands of years to a man named Nimrod, founder of ancient pagan Babylon. Nimrod began a counterfeit religion in the Book of Genesis. The Bible refers to it as the religion of Mystery Babylon the mother of false religion that will be destroyed when the Savior Jesus comes to set up His throne on earth, Revelation 18. Babylons false worship is found today in some aspect in nearly all religions, including christendom." - Nimrod: The Grandfather of Paganism Yahweh's Restoration Ministries "Jesus Christ was NOT born on December 25. But December 25th can be traced back to Genesis

and a man named Nimrod. Nimrod was the founder of a great false religious system that began in ancient Babylon that has always opposed the truths of God. Its time we face facts! This world is deceived, just as God prophesied it would be (Rev. 12:9). Satan is the power behind this deception. Satan has successfully pawned off the old customs of the Babylonian mystery religion as being pleasing to Jesus Christ." - Why Christmas is (Not)So Important to God By Carl Hilliker and Mark Jenkins December 2002 article in; The Trumpet "The book of Revelation is an end-time book. In chapter 17 we are told that Jesus Christ will one day pass judgment upon a great whore bearing the title mystery, babylon the great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth (v. 5). This is the great false Babylonian religious system that Nimrod founded and its many false religious variations or denominations throughout the world!" - Why Christmas is (Not)So Important to God By Carl Hilliker and Mark Jenkins December 2002 article in; The Trumpet "Can there be any doubt what Jesus Christ thinks of this church? Every inhabitant of Earth has been made to suffer to one degree or another by the deceptions created by its abominations. Revelation 18:4 carries this plea: And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. Right now, God is sending out that same warning message to all who will listen: Come out of all these pagan practices disguised as Christianity. Dont partake any longer of those sins. The celebration of Christmas and its customs is just one of those sins. It seems harmless, but those who stay in such deception will eventually have to face the wrath of Jesus Christ." - Why Christmas is (Not)So Important to God By Carl Hilliker and Mark Jenkins December 2002 article in; The Trumpet "It is no wonder that Jesus said, Enter ye in at the strait gate:

for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Popular opinion should not prevent individuals who know the truth from turning away from a festival season steeped in paganism. Jesus said that, in order to be His disciples, there would be times when we would need to forsake the desires of our family and friends and follow Him (Luke 14:26-27). - Why Christmas is (Not)So Important to God By Carl Hilliker and Mark Jenkins December 2002 article in; The Trumpet "God does give us a command to memorialize Jesus Christ: He commands us to observe the day of Christs death (i Cor. 11:24-27)NOT His birth. You now have a choice: You can continue keeping Christmas year after year, accepting the influence of your family, friends, neighbors and Nimrod, or you can accept the commands of the Eternal God by learning more about HIM." - Why Christmas is (Not)So Important to God By Carl Hilliker and Mark Jenkins December 2002 article in; The Trumpet "Lent, Easter and Christmas are of Babylonian origin." -EASTER AND CHRISTMAS PAGANISM 2000 B.C. TO DATE by Edward Stevens (1895-1966) "Christmas" festivities are not just "pre-Christian" dating to pagan worship of the sun godbut they in fact have NO connection to the date of birth of the true Messiah, Jesus Christ." -Is Christmas Christian? Volume 6, Issue 6 By John H. Ogwyn "Almost every year, newspapers and magazines will publish articles pointing out that Christmas customs originate not from the Bible, but from pagan antiquity. Most readers, when faced with these facts, simply say: "I dont see what difference it makes,"

and continue with their Christmas preparations. Instead of seeking to put Christ back into Christmas, we must acknowledge that He was never there in the first place! Christmas never was Christian! True Christians will give it back to the pagans. We ought to take our religious customs and practices directly from the Bible. Then we will be worshiping our Creator in spirit and truth, just as He teaches us to do (John 4:24)." -Is Christmas Christian? Volume 6, Issue 6 By John H. Ogwyn

In Conclusion What else can be said about Christmas and "Babylon the Great" that has not already been covered by the above secular quotes ? Many say, "but I do it for my children." Others may say, "but I do it for my parents." But Listen to what Jesus Says Jesus said, "...anyone who loves his son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me." (Matthew 10:37b)(NIV)-BibleGateway "Anyone who loves his father or mother more than me is not worthy of me...." (Matthew 10:37a)(NIV)-BibleGateway Jesus said - "Stand up for me against world opinion and I'll stand up for you before my Father in heaven." (Matthew 10:32)(MSG)-BibleGateway Jesus said - "He who loves and takes more pleasure in father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves and takes more pleasure in son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me."
