Merry Christmas: The Birth of the Sun

DON'T BELIEVE ME, DO THE RESEARCH

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

-Colossians 2:8-

wheel of the year

Christmas is known as Yule (Winter Solstice)

Imagine

A angel, sent to your mother notifying her that she would give birth to a baby. You are born of a virgin birth. Three wise men follow the east star to Bethlehem bearing gifts. The gifts symbolize holiness and kingship. You are the lamb of God, son of man. You were sent to earth to nullify Adams sin.

How would you feel?

December 25th is your day, but you are not celebrated. You are not the face of your nativity. The world reverence a mystical man that appears once a year bearing gifts.

What would you think?

Story

Nimrod he is the son of Cush and great grandson of Noah. Nimrod is a “mighty hunter before the lord and the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar (Genesis 10: 9-11). Nimrod organized the rebellion from God that is still dominating the world. Nimrod was worshipped as a God, amongst the lands that was his kingdoms and he married his own mother, whose name is Semiramis. Shem whose the uncle of Nimrod and Shem’s co-conspirators captured Nimrod, killed him and cut his body into pieces. Shem told his crew to take the pieces of Nimrod’s body and give them to the kingdoms under his rule. Shem crew did what he commanded them to do. The purpose was to show that Nimrod was no God. For what God can be killed. Shem warned all of Nimrod’s followers to turn away from their idols and worship God.

So how was Nimrod survived????

A female, her name is Semiramis (Mother/wife of Nimrod). Semiramis was able to locate all the pieces of Nimrod’s body except for one. She was not able to find his phallus (male reproductive organ). Semiramis told her followers that a evergreen tree sprang overnight from a dead tree stump. This would symbolize new life of Nimrod. Semiramis also said that Nimrod would visit the evergreen tree on the day of his birth and leave gifts under it. Nimrod’s birth is December 25th.

Roman Empire

In Rome they celebrated a pagan deity named Mithra who is a Sun-God of the Persians. Nimrod, Cush and Semiramis ruled in other nations under different names. So Mithra is another name for Nimrod/Tammuz in Rome. I do not want anybody confused, but they went by many different names. All you need to keep in mind is that this is Mother Goddess and Sun-God worship. Many religions, nations and cultures have these same stories of these same people from the bible, just under different alias. That is how you know that there is validity to this historic evidence. No Mithra was not born December 25th and no Mithra was not born of a virgin birth. In fact Mithra was born from a rock. However, the Roman-Empire adopts pagan religions and practices of other empires and turn them into their own. So Mithra under Rome became known as Sol Invictus (Latin: “Unconquered Sun”) on 25 December AD 274, the Roman emperor Aurelian made this a celebration of the god Saturn (Nimrod’s rebirth) and this would be the rebirth of the sun-god during the winter solstice. This winter holiday would be known as Saturnalia. This holiday was celebrated from December 17th-25th. The festival of Saturnalia had public sacrifices, feasting, gift-giving, singing, also Saturn was depicted throughout Roman Temples carrying wreaths and having a pileus.

Picture: Saturn wearing a wreath on the left and Mithra wearing the pileus on the right.

Emperor Constantine made a decree that Christianity will be the new faith of the Roman Empire. Emperor Constantine renamed the pagan holidays and gave them a Christian names. Thus changing Saturnalia to Christmas and giving the holiday new meaning. Saturnalia was renamed to the Mass of Christ and then Christ Mass, which became shortened to Christmas. Christmas was declared the birthday of Jesus of Nazareth and on this day pagan ritual sacrifice of the “body and blood of Jesus.”

Christmas Customs

The Christmas Tree

The Christmas tree is a representation of Nimrod’s rebirth as the sun-god. The Evergreen Tree is a phallic symbolizing a erect penis. The ornaments and tinsel representing the testicles and semen.

They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. 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.

Jeremiah 10:4-6

Sitting Children on Santa’s lap

This practice originates from the worship of Molech/Baal and the passing the of children through fire.

Sacrifice to Moloch Psalm 106

Gifts under the Tree

The practice of placing gifts under the tree is a form of worship and veneration of the sun-god. By placing gifts under the base of the tree is the altar to the sun-god.

Wreaths

The twisting of branches into a circle was a symbol of the sun.

Mistletoe

Held in high regard by the Celtic druids as sacred plant, is a symbol of immortality, love and liberation. The juice of the berries resembled semen it was looked at as sperm of the oak tree god and had great power. Also the mistletoe symbolized peace and joy to the druids. If enemies met each other under the mistletoe they were to put down their weapons and form a truce. Mistletoe is associated with the Norse God Frigga, goddess of love.

Santa Claus – (Sinter Klaas or “Sinterklaas, EL, Cronos, Odin, Thor)

“It should be noted though, that the figure of
Santa Claus is really a non-Christian one
and is based on the Germanic god Thor
who rode on a chariot drawn by goats named
Cracker and Gnasher.”
– St. Nicholas’ Day; By Shonnie Scarola
“Thor was the god of the peasants
and the common people. He was represented
as an eld­erly man, jovial and friendly,
of heavy build, with a long white beard.
His element was the fire, his color red.
The rumble and roar of thunder were said
to be caused by the rolling of his chariot,
for he alone among the gods never rode on
horse­back but drove in a chariot drawn by
two white goats called Cracker and Gnasher.
He was said to live in the ‘North­land’
where he had his palace among icebergs.
The fireplace in every home was especially
sa­cred to him, and he was said to come down
through the chimney into his element, the fire.”
– -Francis X. Weiser,
Handbook of Christian Feasts and Customs
(New York: Harcourt, Brace and World, Inc., 1958)
“Thor was fighting the giants of ice and snow,
and thus became the Yule-god. He was said to live
in the “Northland” where he had his palace among
icebergs. By our pagan forefathers he was considered
as the cheerful and friendly god, never harming
the humans but rather helping and protecting them.
The fireplace in every home was especially sacred
to him, and he was said to come down through the
chimney into his element, the fire.”
-(Guerber, H.A. Myths of Northern Lands.
New York: American Book Company, 1895, p. 61)

We have to go back a bit find the pagan legend and myth associated with Santa. One of the first places to start is with the Germanic people and the Norse God Odin. The 13th Century Poetic Edda is a complication of stories and poems from Scandinavian history, some as early 985AD. In this work and from Snorri Sturluson’s Prose Edda we learn about Odin riding an eight-legged horse named Sleipnir, that can leap great distances. At Yule, Odin leads a great hunting party through the sky in celebration. This story gives rise to comparisons of Santa and his 8 reindeer flying through the sky.

In some traditions of Odin’s Yule time ride, children could place their boots near the chimney filled with treats for Sleipnir and Odin would reward them for their kindness with food, candy or gifts. The tradition still continues Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. In other Germanic countries the practice has been replaced with hanging stockings.

On the Celtic side, the origins of the Holly King are little dubious, but there are links to the Great Kings of Ireland and the legend of the Holly King. With going too far into the history of Ireland, Between 8000-7500 BCE the Ice bridge between Scotland and Ireland collapses. Tribes of around 50,000 to 60,000 hunter gatherers are now “trapped” in Ireland. The population dwindles to about 10,000 as animals and food run out sustaining themselves in a variety of methods, including the consumption of mildly poisonous Holly berries. Around 6500-5500 BCE the Cuilleain (“Holly” (holy) men step onto the scene. Also known as the “Shining Ones” of Wicklow Hills, these men save the dwindling population from barbarity and are the first priest kings to preach self-wisdom, organized religion for humanity and salvation. Through their efforts to save their people, some of these early Priest Kings sacrifice their lives in battle. From these early priest kings, the concept of the Holly King who saved his people from the depths of the winter ice is born.

Through these early mythical legends, The Holly King begins his battle with his twin brother the Oak King at the Summer Solstice. As the year is wanning the Holly King prevails and begins preparations to save and maintain his people through the cold winter. In order to accomplish his mission, he travels the land to hunt, fish and harvest. Transporting these life saving items in a wagon or sled pulled by eight deer. These ‘gifts’ of life are provided to all his people, and in exchange they provide care and comfort to his team of deer.

There is also suggestion that the 8 reindeer plays pagan significance. Just follow along here, it comes together in the end. Even in those ancient times the number 9 was an important spiritual number. 9 witches often made up a coven. 9 feet was the diameter of a perfect circle. And maybe that’s why “the whole 9 yards”; which refers to the 9 yards of material for a Great Kilt worn by many Celtic highlanders is so important. When we think of Santa we think of Santa and his 8 tiny reindeer. And most people focus on the 8 reindeer. Well now add Santa. 9 souls traveling through the winter sky to bring presents for the rebirth of the year. It’s a stretch, but there are those who believe this is where the 8 reindeer got their start.

The Holly King lived way up North, where he could survive in the cold during the reign of his brother in the spring and summer. The Oak King who needed the warmth to survive, lived in the warm forests in the south and falls into sleep while his brother of the cold reigns over the world during the fall and winter months.

Ancient pagan deities such as Befana (a gift-giving Roman goddess); the Holly King (a Celtic Winter god); and Thor and Tomte (Norse gods who, respectively, rode across the sky in a chariots drawn by goats and gave presents to children at the end of the year) have all fed into the Santa legend.

In many of these early pagan legends, presents are given to children or young families to represent abundance and fertility. After all this is the time of the rebirth of the Sun. Presents were exchanged to honor that rebirth and to give wishes or hopes to the person receiving the gift for abundance and fertility in the coming year. Now don’t assume that ‘fertility’ means giving birth to a child. Remember these people had to live off the earth and the crops they grew. They didn’t have grocery stores on the corner to trot down to and buy food for their families. So in most cases the fertility was for the coming growing season.

Santa didn’t become a Christian figure until the 3rd century with Nicholas, the Bishop of Myra. He lived on what is now the coast of Turkey. Nicholas suffered for his faith, was exiled and imprisoned. After his release, Nicholas attended the Council of Nicaea in AD 325. He died December 6, AD which became a festive day to honor this Bishop and his life. It’s still a day recognized in many European countries as St. Nicholas Day. His parents died in an epidemic while Nicholas was still young. Obeying Jesus’ words to “sell what you own and give the money to the poor,” Nicholas used his whole inheritance to assist the needy, the sick, and the suffering. Many stories are told of his generosity, and caring. Especially his protection and care of children. Because of his life work, he became synonymous with Santa Claus. Though many of the stories retold today cannot be verified and are likely just oral stories that were created to entertain children and to further incorporate pagan legends with Christian figures.

It’s impossible to point to the one real ‘first’ Santa, because Santa is a culmination of mythological legends and stories. But from many of the earliest pagan stories and legends we can find pieces of the Santa legend in our Celtic and Scandinavian mythologies.

Gift giving

This was popular during the celebration of Saturnalia. The Romans gave each other gifts for luck.

Colors Green and Red

These colors are to represent fertility.

Yule Log

The log, a phallic symbol that is cut from a oak tree. The yule log is decorated with holly mistletoe and evergreens to represent the intertwining of the god and goddess that is reunited on this day.

Star

The Star is not the star of David nor is it the star that was in the sky of Jesus birth. The star represents Siri, the dog star, it is a five pointed pentagram.

untitled

The nativity of Jesus Christ was a lie popularized by Emperor Constantine. He wanted to unite the pagans and Christians together. Emperor Constantine declared that all pagan holidays are now Christian holidays. So you are the Messiah sent to the “lost sheep of the house of Israel” Matthew 15:24. You were sent to this earth to nullify Adam’s sin. You are being used to popularize the ancient religion Sun Worship to the world. So instead of people keeping your Father laws, statues and commandments, the world is more verse in pagan ideologies and practices. So tell me, how would you feel? What would you think?

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Revelation 12:9:12

DON’T BELIEVE ME, DO THE RESEARCH

FisherofMen

Wassup world. I am Keyshaun Jamel Collins and what can I say about myself. First thing is that I never thought that I would be sharing my life, thoughts, experiences, ideas, and dreams aka my business with the world. I’m simply an introverted guy who views the world differently but prefers to keep to myself. I graduated from college nine months ago with my Bachelors of Science degree in psychology. That’s a big accomplishment for me. Yet, that’s not about me. I am a Chicago native born and raised to a black dad and mom who are still married till this day. That don’t describe me. I got a Puerto Rican and Mexican fiancée; my guy friends I had to break free from them because they were jealous. Couldn’t understand how I had the tools to get that one girl, while they stepped up to the plate swung and missed. That’s not about me. Went outside day after day practicing on what started as a dream in hopes of one day becoming a reality. I did not have the mental strength to let this curricular activity go, so I could realize that this was meant to be metaphor to teach me life and prepare me for my true gift. Now that’s me. I am a firm believer in to whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48). My goal is to give back, it is very easy to receive so much in life, but the real reward is to give back that knowledge so you can help the next fellow man under you struggling in whatever his/her situation may be. Through this website I have an opportunity to inspire, encourage and motivate. Paint a picture with my words while telling a story about my struggles, hard aches and pains; also the down falls and faults that I bare witness to everyday while I interact with numerous people everyday. How am I able to achieve this, simple I know myself. I know my self worth as a man because I envision it, claim it, speak it and walk in my authority confidently because I understand it. Like my dad and mom always say “If you don’t stand for something than you’ll fall for anything. Now that’s me.
