THE CHRISTMASS STORY
AS GIVEN IN THE BIBLE
Steve Van Nattan
This is a simple but blunt story. It
is the story which originated in Nimrod's Babel, and it has come down through
the ages to be the Christmass story of today. It has absolutely NOTHING
to do with the birth of the historic Lord Jesus Christ.

the Christmas story:
Ezekiel 8:1 And
it came to pass in the sixth year, in the sixth month, in the fifth day of the
month, as I sat in mine house, and the elders of Judah sat before me, that the
hand of the Lord GOD fell there upon me.
2 Then I beheld, and lo a likeness
as the appearance of fire: from the appearance of his loins even downward, fire;
and from his loins even upward, as the appearance of brightness, as the colour
There were two images. One
was Jehovah, and He was getting ready to leave Israel. He was already at
the North Gate. How sad. Is He not also ready to leave Christendom
today? I am sure there is a contextual connection with Babylon in this first
blasphemy, but I have not figured out the exact one. Can you help in this?
Is this Mulloch?
Ezekiel 8:3 And he put forth
the form of an hand, and took me by a lock of mine head; and the spirit lifted
me up between the earth and the heaven, and brought me in the visions of God to
Jerusalem, to the door of the inner gate that looketh toward the north; where
was the seat of the image of jealousy, which provoketh to jealousy.
behold, the glory of the God of Israel was there, according to the vision that
I saw in the plain.
5 Then said he unto me, Son of man, lift up thine
eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up mine eyes the way toward the
north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in
6 He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, seest thou what they
do? even the great abominations that the house of Israel committeth here, that
I should go far off from my sanctuary? but turn thee yet again, and thou shalt
see greater abominations.
Cabbalist Jewish paganism is born. This
is the account has been likened to the lodge of Freemasonry.
8:7 And he brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, behold a hole
in the wall.
8 Then said he unto me, Son of man, dig now in the wall: and
when I had digged in the wall, behold a door.
9 And he said unto me,
Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here.
10 So I
went in and saw; and behold every form of creeping things, and abominable beasts,
and all the idols of the house of Israel, pourtrayed upon the wall round about.
11 And there stood before them seventy men of the ancients of the house
of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, with every
man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up.
Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house
of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say,
the LORD seeth us not; the LORD hath forsaken the earth.
Women weeping for Tammuz. At the summer solstice
the ancient Babel and Sumerian pagans would weep for Gilgamesh or Nimrod, whom
they believed died as the days grew shorter. They believed that Gilgamesh, Nimrod,
Marduk, Horus, and in Israel, Tammuz had gone to hell for six months because of
the jealousy of Ishtar. Each nation had its mother and child, goddess and
son, cult, and the names changed, but the cultic story never changed. This
pagan cult had survived for thousands of years, and here, in Israel, the Jewish
women had adopted the cult.
Ezekiel 8:13 He said
also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that
14 Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD's house
which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.
They celebrated the birth of the baby god to the goddess. At the winter
solstice the men and priests of Babylon would stand on their temple porches and
watch the morning sun come up. They would do this for a couple of days to
be sure, then they would report to the people that the sun had indeed stayed up
longer. Thus, on December 25th, as early as 1500 BC, we have epigraphic
evidence that the Babylonians would shout, "rejoice, the goddess has given birth
to a son." They would then run down to the local temple. They would
get the baby god in residence, parade it through the streets, and shout for
joy. They would also light candles and put them in their windows, and they
would give gifts to one another. Below, the priests of Israel had adopted the
Babylonian cult, and 25 of them were standing WITH THEIR BACKS TO THE ALTAR OF
GOD celebrating the return and rebirth of the sun god. 25 men! Five
is the number of death in the Bible. So, they chose 5 times 5. Death
magnified in the face of Jehovah.
15 Then said he
unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt
see greater abominations than these.
16 And he brought me into the inner
court of the LORD's house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD,
between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs
toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped
the sun toward the east.
Idol excavated in Sumerian digs--
This is Ishtar and the baby god Marduk.
They put the branch to the nose. This
was the use of Mistletoe or some similar Celtic-style cultic weed as a good luck
charm. It is used at Christmass today to give men and women an opportunity
to commit adultery and kiss those to whom they are not married. Also, we
note the violence in the land-- Not unfamiliar to those who try to drive
about the city on December 23-24. This year, Tucson, Arizona had so many
accidents on December 23 that the local hospitals started falling behind in handling
the victims of Marduk or Tammuz revelry.
he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the
house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they
have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger:
and, lo, they put the branch to their nose.
18 Therefore will I also deal
in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry
in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.
In Greece, just a century or so before
the birth of Christ, Core gave birth to a son in the same Christmass model as
Tammuz and Marduk who were born to Ishtar in Babylon. Then the cult progressed
to Rome, where Lato gave birth to a son. Many years later, the Holy Roman
Empire under Constantine, was thrashing about with their new church system. They
were having quite a time "converting" the local pagans. They concluded that
they needed church Holy Days (Holidays) which would follow by one day those of
the pagans. Thus, the pagans would come to town to celebrate the pagan festivals,
and they could be convinced easily to stay over for the Holy Day of such and such.
It worked, and the church treasury also came into the black for a change.
At the winter solstice, the Holy Roman Church simply did a "bait
and switch" on the pagans. They took Greek Core and Roman Lato away from
them, and they gave the pagans a new goddess and son-- Mary and Jesus. Thus,
the very first Christmas in which Mary and Jesus were involved is clearly a pagan
mixture. The Mary and Jesus of the Holy Roman Church were counterfeits from
Sumer and Babylon who happen to have the same names as two Bible characters whom
we dearly love.
you celebrate Christmass, you are memorializing the single oldest and most pagan
event in the occult and pagan traditions since the Tower of Babel. The lights,
yule log, gifts, mistletoe, and manger scene all have pagan roots of the worst
sort. And, Santa (Satan) Clause is Old Nick-- Nick is the devil in
There is absolutely NO way Jehovah God would have
allowed the Lord Jesus to be born on December 25th. Furthermore; the early
Church paid NO attention to the birth of Christ, The first ones to do so
were Constantine and his whorish wimpy money grubbers. The Donatists, Winklers,
Stablers, Cathari, Albergensians, Anabaptists, and Puritans had zero tolerance
for Christmas. The Puritans would have dunked you in the pond and put you
in stocks if they caught you doing ANYTHING on Christmas.
out in Ezekiel. In the beginning of Chapter 8 above, Jehovah has vacated
the temple and is standing at the north of the city ready to leave. Later
in Ezekiel, He did just that. I am convinced that this same Jehovah is outside
the churches of Christendom today and ready to leave. The Laodicean church
is spewed. And, if you are Fundamental Baptist, King James 1611 only, and
you are still exalting the goddess cult at Christmass, get ready-- the Holy
Spirit is not going to hang around your church simply because you cling to the
KJV. Your actions make your zeal for the Word null and void. The KJV
is not a fetish which charms God into going along with your sloppy agape scumball
Those who insist on performing pagan acts of Christ-mass
I have over 300 bibliographical entries from
which I took 4000 pages of material on the era mentioned above (circa 3500 BC
to 300 AD). Of the 300 authors, all are relating to ancient history and
epigraphical material, and only about 10 authors are Christians. There are
many entries relating to the subject I just discussed, and they are well indexed.
I can provide some of these to any serious party. I know I am right,
I am a bigot about it. No rational historian would debate me-- HE
WOULD BACK ME UP 100%, even if he were an agnostic or atheist. I can assure
you, you have NO LEG to stand on regarding Christmass-- NONE,
ZIP, ZERO, NAUGHT!

THE TRUTH RIGHT UP FRONT AND SAVE A LOT OF SORROW
of the Date of Christmas:
The Gospels. Concerning the date of Christ's
birth the Gospels give no help; upon
their data contradictory arguments are
based. The census would have been impossible
in winter: a whole population
could not then be put in motion. Again, in winter it must
have been; then
only field labour was suspended. But Rome was not thus considerate.
moreover differ as to whether shepherds could or would keep flocks
during the nights of the rainy season.
