Who Is Christmas Really For And What Does The Bible Say

Who Is Christmas Really For And What Does The Bible Say. One of the first things you will notice studying Scripture is that the word “Christmas” is not mentioned in any verse, chapter, or book of the Bible.

If the Bible does not mention Christmas, what part of the Scripture can we rely on to dismiss Christmas or other human manufactured holidays.

Jeremiah 10:2-4 Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. The people’s customs are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the workman’s hands, with the axe. They deck it with silver and gold; they fasten it with nails and hammers so that it does not move.

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son, is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Esther 9:22 As the days wherein the Jews rested from their enemies and the month which was turned unto them from sorrow to joy, and from mourning into a good day: that they should make them days of feasting and fun, and of sending portions one to another, and gifts to the poor.

Revelation 22:18-19 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, out of the holy city, and from the things written in this book.

1 Thessalonians 5:2-6 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others, but watch and be sober.

History convincingly shows that December 25 was famous as the date for Christmas, not because Christ was born on that day but because it was already popular in pagan religious celebrations as the sun’s birthday.

Nothing can conclusively prove that Christ was born on December 25. However, there is no reason if someone believes that they have the right to celebrate that day, and I do not think that day and date is correct and, therefore, will not celebrate what I believe is the pagan holidays.

There will always be speculation regarding the birth date of Christ, and humankind will invent any date that suits their narrative. The Bible, the undisputed word of God, does not give us any indications that our Lord was born on December 25.
