Christmas: A Battleground – The Wrestling Against Powers and Principalities

I have often shared on this website Ephesians 6:12 from the Holy Scriptures: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, and against the worldly governors, the princes of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness, which are in the high places.” The celebration and recognition of the Christmas “halig“day is perhaps the epitome of the battle between “principalities, against powers, and against worldly governors, the princes of the darkness of the world, against spiritual wickedness” and Goodness, i.e. the fulfillment of our Creator’s Spirit of Truth that, by our own choice, lives within us. Because our Creator God made us of the capacity to choose, it is our choice to be filled with His Spirit, however, the power of that Spirit is what “naturally” causes us to know the difference between wrong and right, with the exception of “strong delusion.”

Since the beginning of time there has existed the evil powers, by Heavenly Father’s choice, that work relentlessly to antithesize all things of the only Creator.

Bible scholars, and anyone who “studies to show themselves approved unto God,” know that our Savior (Yeshuwah) was not born in December and thus could not have been born on the 25th. It is believed that the Emperor Constantine, wrongly accepting of the myth by most in this world to be the first “Christian” world leader, first recognized the birth of the Savior Child on December 25th, a deliberate act of anti-Christ. Soon thereafter, the Vatican took over the bastardization of the birth of our Savior and thus turned it into the Pagan “halig”day it is today.

Try as they may to destroy all things Yeshuwah, to distort and mislead, the powers and principalities at work cannot destroy Yehwah’s Spirit of Truth.

Yes, the celebration of Christmas is a Pagan event, complete with the fabrication of “Satan” Claus, with a made up story about presents and the like wrongly attempting to meld Satan Claus and Yeshuwah into a share existence, but try as the evil may evil cannot break the power of Yeshuwah and the Spirit of Truth. Among all the worldly and Pagan symbols of this “halig”day, there still can be found moments of love and tenderness, an overlooking of the nastiness that often controls our lives, complete with a genuine seeking of Peace on Earth and Goodwill To All Men.

The Powers and Principalities do recognize that their mere efforts at Paganizing a government-recognized “halig”day, an event fabricated by Constantine to falsely placate the “Christians” of the day, that actually began the modern day practice of universal religion, i.e. Paganism, but this effort needs to be constantly reinforced to ensure that real Christians throughout the world not only prop up the holy Roman Empire’s bastardization of Christ but also to totally destroy any kind of recognition of the event of a Savior of the world being born for the redemption of our sins. This is why we see constant efforts at erasing even the name Christmas from the “halig”day.

Despite this effort, Richard Fernandez this morning writes: The effort to erase Christmas will probably fail for no other reason than that it meets a human need that a mechanical bureaucratic day off cannot fulfill.  Humanity needs a time to mark the growth and change in the family, an occasion to renew hopes and put aside fears and a chance to remember something we once knew: that everything’s going to be alright in the end.  It really will.”

The effort to erase Christmas will fail if for no other reason than this war between Powers will ultimately be won by the one and only True God who created all things and never breaks a promise. Many people may suffer cognitive dissonance, never realizing what is going on as they struggle to live in two opposing existences, but the power of Yehwah’s Spirit of Truth will forever show the good the differences between good and evil and as such, somewhere inside them, will seek Truth, Understanding, Peace on Earth and goodwill to all men everywhere in the World.

My prayer this day is that all will call upon that Spirit of Truth for that is the ONLY source of those things most of us seek and struggle to find.

May you receive the blessings of Yehwah!

Who Sees You When You’re Sleeping?

The below photograph shows a sign that is found in Maine on I-295. The Department of Transportation says the sign is intended to be both “humorous” and to remind people to slow down.

My perspective is most definitely different than most. If you take the name “Santa” and swap just two letters around, the word quickly becomes “Satan.” With the added, slightly blurred image, just to the left of the traffic sign, we can easily lose the image of Santa, replace it with Satan and then ask the question as to who, precisely, “sees you when your ‘speeding'” and who “knows if you’ve been bad or good.” More than likely this image can be updated next Christmas that shows one of the newly selected president. Time will tell.

Is not my “humor” equal to that of the Maine Department of Transportation?
