So why do we celebrate Christ's birthday as Christmas, on December the 25th?
The answer lies in the pagan origins of Christmas. In ancient Babylon, the feast of the Son of Isis (Goddess of Nature) was celebrated on December 25. Raucous partying, gluttonous eating and drinking, and gift-giving were traditions of this feast.
Merry Christmas to all who reject God while giving belief to a holiday that is completely false. So when all who love their children buy them gifts, all they are doing is sealing their worst timesoftrouble to come upon them through the beginning of sorrows followed by the great tribulation; and I promise you that your head will be hung low in shame and disgrace when you become surrounded with death and great suffering of your loved ones all because your pride was much too strong to admit deception; and thy word is truth.
I cannot think of a better way to Praise God and Our Savior Jesus, then to take a pagan holiday and turn it around to Praise and Glorify Our Father and Jesus! This is exactly what the purpose of celebrating Christmas was to do. Now it is true that it has evolved into a huge marketing scheme, so I just caution believers to focus on God's Love for us to send His Son to us, to die for us. To focus on Jesus' willing obedience to His Father, to willingly set his life down for all of us. So Christmas celebrated with the correct focus, Jesus' birth marked the begining of many Prophicies coming true and the start of Salvation for all who choose to accept it! The Gospel is Good News and Jesus' Birth is the begining of the Good News.
Certainly we do not konw the date of Jesus birth. But that does not make this a pagan holiday in origin or purpose. Mnay confused 'facts' in this blog. The feast of Issis was at the time of the vernal equinox [srping].
