Should Christians Celebrate Christmas?







Janet Meyer - 12/06/11


Earlier in the evening, we were discussing if we should buy a Christmas tree. We were not sure, so we prayed about it before we left. At the store, we did not buy one and on the return home we got the answer.





As I sat in the car looking at the Christmas decorations, the Holy Spirit spoke to me. He spoke to me in plain language. He began pointing things out to me as we drove. He started out by explaining how the businesses have turned a day to celebrate Jesus into a moneymaking venture, like when the money changers sold doves for sacrifices in the temple. His voice sounded grieved and I felt the same grief as He spoke. He continued that Christmas is a man-made holiday and the very spirit of Christmas is actually a principality (demons) and is not of God. The Holy Spirit was grieved by how man has made this Christmas holiday into an idol by worshiping the creature rather than the Creator.





An angel of the Lord was then sent to show me some things in the spirit. The angel was dressed all in white. He was wearing sandals and around his waist was a golden rope. His face was glowing so I could not see his features. The angel showed me many things in the spirit as we were driving and even after we got home. The angel then showed me various decorations and why they had become idols to the people. They were idols because they elevate these things for their own pleasure. But God seeks a broken spirit and contrite heart in remembrance of Him, not what we have made Christmas into. In the spirit, I was walking beside the angel as people walked into these department stores. Something was being poured over their heads by demons. What they were pouring over the people’s heads appeared to be like a mist or vapor and had the purpose of drawing people to specific items. Then I saw how the people are being immersed in the manufactured Christmas holiday and are drowning in the ocean of man-made religion; it is not of God.





Then he told me that bringing a Christmas tree into your home actually brings Egyptian curses upon your household. God said do not bring them into the house. Do not celebrate Christmas the way that people are doing it today. “Come out from among them and be separate.”


Again, the angel said, “Come out from among them and you will not have any sickness near your dwelling.” Do not bring cursed things into the home, as they bring in diseases and sickness.





After this, I received further understanding. The Christmas holiday itself has been cursed by the creature, Satan. Part of this curse is to bring people into department stores and distract them from the true purpose of God’s love. I saw how even the Christmas trees are being prayed over (pagan curses) to get people to purchase them. The curse is very real. People are making this all out to be pleasant to the eyes and satisfy the flesh in order to draw people away from what the Gospel of Jesus is all about.





Businesses have even resorted to witchcraft: spells are placed on unwary customers to give them a false sense of peace (Christmas spirit) to get them to buy what they do not need to please the flesh. People rushing through the stores, to get presents for their children, but this “Christmas” is NOT of God but is just another man-made religious tradition. People are killing themselves because they don’t have the money to buy presents for their children, when it is NOT about “presents.” It is about Jesus coming into the world to save us from our sins. The wise men brought gifts to the baby Jesus to worship Him, but let me ask you something: are we doing that? Are we buying gifts for our children for the purpose of worshiping Jesus? The majority of people are not. I used to be one of them. I loved Christmas but I love Jesus more. The Holy Spirit is grieved because of what we have made Jesus’ birth out to be. Santa Claus has become the Jesus of Christmas. An idol. Christmas is a generational curse. And we as born-again believers in Jesus Christ need to be set apart, be an example of Jesus. This year and from now on my family will celebrate the true meaning of Jesus’ birth without “Christmas,” which is everyday.


2 Corinthians 6:17 Therefore come out from among them, and be you separate, says the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,


Romans 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.


Psalms 91:15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honor him.


Jeremiah 10:2-4 Thus says the LORD, Learn not the way of the nations, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the nations are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cuts a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it moves not.


Proverbs 15:3 The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the-good.


James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.


Psalms 51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.
