Eloy I pray that everyone reads for themselves the scriptures you used completely out of context and reads down further to see what the others say. Also please do the research for yourselves.

Christmas pt.1 of 2: "And now set now your heart from this day and upward, before the stone was laid upon a stone in the temple of YHWH: from this day and upward, ,from the 24th day of the ninth, (from December 24), from the day that the foundation of YHWHs Temple was laid, from this day will I bless you. And in that day will you all say, Thank YHWH, proclaim his name. Sing praise YHWH, for majestically he has done: this known in all the earth." Hag.2:15,18,19+ Is.12:4,5.

Christmas pt.2 of 2: Before she labor-pained she gave birth, before came pain to her, then she delivered a man child. Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad with her, all who love her, rejoice with her a rejoicing. Isaiah 66:7,10.
---Eloy on 1/22/08


The Lord Jesus said, Rejoice at his birth: "Before she labor-pained she gave birth, before came pain to her, then she delivered a man child. Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad with her, all who love her, rejoice with her a rejoicing." Isaiah 66:7,10. And the Lord Jesus said, Rejoice at his resurrection: "Then after the week, that upon dawning into first of week, Jesus met them, saying, Rejoice. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him." Matthew 28:1,9.

Resurrection Day, after the April 14th passover, being 3 days later: "Then after the week, that upon dawning into first of week, Jesus met them, saying, Rejoice. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him." Matthew 28:1,9.

Since the beginning, Jesus is worshipped both at his birth and his Resurrection and Ascension.

Jesus didnt say neither..Man did..its a manmade thing..

Nowhere did Jesus command either of these. The only vaguely related command he gave was:
Luke 22:19:
"And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me."

He was celebrating the breaking of the bread, a part of the Passover seder - this is what he commanded people to do, not to celebrate specific dates in his life.

Chanukah and Christmas are on the same day, but not on the same calendar. Chanukah is on the 25th of the Jewish Month and Christmas is on the 25th of the corresponding Gregorian Month. So in essence we are both celebrating the LIGHT coming into the world on the same day.

Did he tell us not to?

Please use scriptures.

We all know Yahushua wasnt born on Dec 25. Most know Constantine was the one to amalgamate Pagans and believers religions and Constantine gave this very pagan day as the day of Yahushuas birth when the actual Dec 25 date was for Crishna, Mithra, Tammuz,
Hercules, Bacchus, Indra, Buddha, andothers. Also the the nativity originated from the pagan sun worship "Mithraism" who worshipped the "Nativity of the SUN", and Dec was their birth of the SUN.

which is more important his birth or resurrection or his death for that matter. you know it is pretty difficult to celebrate his ressurection if we don't remember that he was born in the first place. and it's pointless to celebrate his ressurection if we aren't reminded of his death. Read 1 john 5. All of christ's life is worthy of celebration because Christ is the witness of God to mankind. I'm celebrating Jesus today, tomorrow and for the rest of my existance on earth and in heaven.

There are Holy Days in the O.T. which the Lord commanded to be kept. But there were other days that weren't commanded but were observed by custom, and it was perfectly acceptable. The Feast of the Dedication is one that wasn't commanded by God (Jo 10:22-23). Jesus gave His church authority so we can observe certain days to celebrate, as well, just as the Jews did.

'But the Jews that were at Shushan assembled together on the thirteenth day thereof, and on the fourteenth thereof; and on the fifteenth day of the same they rested, and made it a day of feasting and gladness' (Es 9). 'And it was so at the end of two months that she returned to her father, and he carried out his vow with her which he had vowed. She knew no man. And it became a custom in Israel that the daughters of Israel went four days each year to lament the daughter of Jephthah the Gileadite.'(Ju 11)

mikefl, can you supply scripture to support your statement? thanks

Didn't the maggi go see Jesus and bring him gifts when He was born? That's in Matthew and Luke. And didn't Mary and 2 other women go to the tomb to anoint the body with Oil? No offense, but 4th of July is my favorite holiday of all time. I love the Lord, but they commercialize Christmas way too much.
---Donna9759 on 11/30/06


The short answer is No. However what would happen to our economy? Sorry I couldn't resist that marketing statement. Actually the only event Jesus even implied was to be considered special was His resurection and ascention. Easter is a great day for anyone hoping for eternal life yet it is mostly celebrated with flowers and egg hunts (both of which relate to pagan festivals). I believe in the empty tomb more than the cross or celebration of the nativity.
