(Jer 10:2) Thus saith YAHUWAH, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. (Jer 10:3) For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. (Jer 10:4) They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. (Jer 10:5) They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good. (Jer 10:6) Forasmuch as there is none like unto thee, O YAHUWAH; thou art great, and thy name is great in might. (Jer 10:7) Who would not fear thee, O King of nations? for to thee doth it appertain: forasmuch as among all the wise men of the nations, and in all their kingdoms, there is none like unto thee. (Jer 10:8) But they are altogether brutish and foolish: the stock is a doctrine of vanities. (Eph 5:14) Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and the True MashiYach shall give thee light. (Eph 5:15) See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, (Eph 5:16) Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. (Eph 5:17) Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of YAHUWAH is. (Eph 5:18) And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Ruwach; (Eph 5:19) Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to YAHUWAH; (Eph 5:20) Giving thanks always for all things unto Alahym and the Father in the name of our Supreme Master Yahuwshuwa MashiYach; (Eph 5:21) Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of Alahym. ~Me and my house, NO! We do not celebrate Pagan Holidays such as easter, thanksgiving, christmas, etc. We serve and give Thanks DAILY to the One TRUE Creator YAHUWAH, through His ONLY Begotten Son and the ONLY Savior spoken of by the Prophets and Apostles before us Yahuwshuwa.
If you want to celebrate the pagan holiday of winter solstice, which is sun worship (not Son worship), you have every right to do so. This time of the year has been celebrated as the birth of the sun for centuries. For those who care to know (and have eyes to see and ears to hear), the Mashiyach (Messiah) YAHUWSHUWA was NOT born on December 25th. Nor did He ever say to celebrate the day of His birth. Truth is not relative. It doesn’t change based on perception. Just like eating cereal with a knife doesn’t change it into a spoon. It is what it is. Although most would agree the TRUE Mashiyach was not born on Dec 25, here are some false pagan deities whose Birthdays are credited as being on Dec 25th.
Dionysus (son of Zeus)
Helios (this is where the word “Holy” comes from…sun worship)
Sol Invictus – (The “Unconquered Sun”)
Tammuz (the cross or Tau, is the sign of Tammuz)
Attis of Phrygia
Krishna/Christos/Christ (not born on the 25th, but this is where the pagan title “Christ” comes from)
Iesous (ee ay sooce) Christos (Jesus Christ)
Truth > Tradition…know what you’re celebrating/worshipping…Hosea 4:6…Shaluwm
Diplomatic immunity usually matters in most places in the world that is unless you are dealing with Israelis.
Tel Aviv has little regard for diplomats, even from the EU as Israeli soldiers rough up the Europeans who were trying to supply aid to Palestinians in the occupied territories that Israel wants for itself.
As Tel Aviv grabs more land and even mistreats diplomats, the West closes its eyes to Israeli crimes. What is it about Tel Aviv that makes most of Western countries to turn a blind eye to Israeli crimes and acts against international law?
