WHY NO ONE SHOULD CELEBRATE THE BIRTHDAY OF CHRIST JESUS

In Gen 14:18, we find the first scriptural reference to Melchizedek, as follows:

“AND MELCHIZEDEK, KING OF SALEM, BROUGHT FORTH BREAD AND WINE, AND HE WAS THE PRIEST OF THE MOST HIGH GOD”.

In Heb Ch 7, the following titles are attributed to Melchizedek:

(1). “–FIRST, BEING BY INTERPRETATION; KING OF RIGHTEOUSNESS”, e.g., 1Cor 1:30.
(2). “AND ATER THAT, ALSO, KING OF SALEM, WHICH IS, KING OF PEACE”, e.g., Isa 9:6
(3). “WITHOUT FATHER, WITHOUT MOTHER, WITHOUT DESCENT, i.e. Having no geneological beginning, e.g., Rev 2:13 “I AM ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE BEGINN- ING AND THE END, THE FIRST AND THE LAST”—“HAVING NEITHER BEGINNING OF DAYS, i.e. Having “no birthdate”. NOR END OF LIFE”. And, having “no literal deathdate”, e.g., John 10:17-18.
(4). “BUT MADE LIKE UNTO THE SON OF GOD”, i.e., 2nd Person Holy Trinity.
(5). “ABIDETH A PRIEST CONTINUALLY”, Heb 7:23,24, i.e., “uninterrupted, by death”.
(6). “WHO IS MADE, NOT AFTER THE LAW OF A FLESHLY COMMANDMENT. BUT AFTER THE POWER OF AN ENDLESS LIFE”, e.g., Heb 5:6.

It should here, be carefully noted, and accepted. That the foregoing Divine Titles, could never be attributed to any human priestly being. And could only “refer to” Christ-God, 2nd Person Holy Trinity. Appearing, in one of His many Theophanies, e.g., Gen 18:1-5.

The foregoing being true, then it would be equally true, that no valid “birthdate”, i.e. “birth- day”, could ever be assigned to “HIM, WHO HAD NO BEGINNING OF DAYS”.
And, WHO WAS “WITHOUT A FATHER”. And, “WITHOUT A MOTHER”. Who, was therefore, “WITHOUT A GENEOLOGICAL BEGINNING”. And of whom it is said in Ps 93:2, “THOU ART FROM EVERLASTING”. On Dec 25th.16 B.C. Antiochus “offered up a sow” in Israel’s iochusTemple, and erected an altar to worship Jupiter, on ROMES’S DAY, for Christ’s Birthday!
Q. But did not the virgin Mary, give birth to Christ-Jesus, at Bethlehem?
A. No. Not as an actual, human, biological fact! Mary, did indeed carry, expel, and nurture Christ-Jesus,(AS) a mother. But that Christ Jesus, was never “humanly procreated”, but was Totally, Divinely Incarnated. May be shown, as follows:

(1). Mary, could not possibly “have helped to produce” Him, Who said of Himself, in John 8:58 “BEFORE ABRAHAM WAS, I AM”. And said in John 8:23,24, “I, AM FROM ABOVE” And thereby, claimed to be The Eternal, Pre-existent, Creator, Jehovah God “I AM”, of Ex 3:14!
(2). Christ-Jesus, “WAS MADE PERFECT”, i.e. Heb 5:9. Something, that could never be said of any “procreated human being”. Nor of any “partly procreated”, nor of any “Partly
Incarnated” being. Why not? “THAT, WHICH IS BORN OF THE FLESH, IS FLESH”, AND THAT, WHICH IS BORN OF THE SPIRIT, IS SPIRIT”, e.g., Christ Jesus, Matt 1:20.
(3). That The Totally Incarnated Christ Jesus. Never “took upon Himself”, any form. Or any degree, of HU-manity, i.e, DIRT-manity. As did Adam, and Eve, and all of their subsequent “HU-man, procreated descendants”. Is plainly so stated, in 1 Cor 15:45-48. Unlike Adam, Christ Jesus, was never “made from” earthly dust.
(4). No. Christ-Jesus, was never “made from”, the union of Mary’s “egg”,(and) The Holy Spirit’s “sperm”! That, would have produced one who was “a Demi-God”; i.e., One who was “part hu-man, and Part Divine”. When in reality, Christ-Jesus, was produced solely by The Holy Spirit. As Perfect Man, and Perfect God; i.e., The Perfect God-Man.
One, who simply chose “to temporarily lay aside” His Gr, En Morphe, His Eternal, Glorious Visible Form of God,(e.g., John 17:5, Phil 2:6. And “temporarily took upon Himself”, The non-glorious appearing form, of The Perfect God-Man, “IMMANUEL, GOD WITH US”, of Matt 1 :22,23, Phil 2:7,8. (5). The Eternal Christ-God,2nd Person Holy Trinity, chose to “Reduce Himself”, to A Divine Embryo. He “placed Himself”, within the protective confine of Mary’s (then) virgin womb. He underwent, A Divine Gestation Period, within Mary’s womb. He grow therein. Not “imperfectly”. But “un-perfectly”, Ps 139:16.”BEING MADE PERFECT”, at every stage of His In-vitro Incarnation, e.g., Heb 5:9. He was then simply “expelled” from Mary’s womb, at the appointed time, and place, set forth in Matt Ch 1.
As stated earlier. Mary’s (then) virgin womb, was simply “A CHOSEN VESSEL”, with-
in which, The Totally Divine Act of Incarnation, was to simply “take place”.
(6). Nowhere in Holy Writ, is Mary ever said to be “THE THEOTOKUS”, “MOTHER OF
GOD”. Mary, could never have been the “biological” mother, of Christ-Jesus; i.e., Who said of Himself, John 8:5¸ “BEFORE ABRAHAM WAS, I AM”. For Mary, to have been the “biological” mother of God. Mary, would have had to exist PRIOR, to God. Which
of course could never be true, e.g., Rev 22:13.
(7), Heb Ch 7, shows Christ-Jesus, to be Melchizedek, The Divine, High Priest of God
And as stated earlier. Mary, could never have given “A BEGINNING OF DAYS”. TO
“HIM WHO HAD NO BEGINNING OF DAYS”. Neither, could Mary have been the “biological” mother, OF “HIM WHO HAD NEITHER MOTHER, NOR FATHER”, , NOR HAD ANY (BIOLOGICAL) BEGINNING”, as stated earlier in this study, in Hebrews Ch 7.
(8). Being “BEGAT”. i.e. Gr Gennao. When used of the father. Means to produce, or
engender, e.g., Matt 1:16,20. But when used of the female. It simply means, TO BRING
FORTH”. i.e., “To expel outwardly, that which resides within the womb”, i.e. As is said of Mary, in Gal 4:4, where “MADE (OF) A WOMAN”, is Gr EK, which meant. Christ Jesus was “produced out of”. Or, “expelled out from”, Mary’s womb.

Q. Is there a specific scripture, which forbids “the setting up of” The Creche, i.e., The Manger Scene? As commonly so occurs at Christmas time?
A. Yes. 2 Cor 5:16 “WHEREFORE,(HENCEFORTH), KNOW WE NO MAN AFTER THE FLESH. YEA, THOUGH WE HAVE KNOWN CHRIST AFTER THE FLESH. (HENCEFORTH), KNOW WE HIM, NO MORE”.
It is not that one is “to forget”, The Incarnation Scene of Christ-Jesus, as set forth in Matt Ch 1, etc. But, simply that one is not to “inordinately” dwell upon it! But rather, that we should “HENCEFORTH”, DWELL UPON, The Risen, Glorified, Exalted Position of The Majestic Christ Jesus, e.g., John 17:5. The earthly, humiliating, fleshly experiences, of Christ’s lowly birth, rejection, and His degrading death upon the stake at Calvary–are past. And we are told to “HENCEFORTH”, dwell upon His (restored), Gr En Morphe. His Eternal, Glori- ous, Visible, Form of God.

We, ARE “HENCEFORTH”, to take Him out of the fleshly creche. And off of the Roman crucifix. And (now), envision Him, on His Glorified Throne of God. Where He “HENCE-
FORTH”, –rightly belongs.
In conclusion. It should here be noted, and accepted. That even The Encyclopaedia
Britannica, Vol 5,1959 ed, pg 642, describes “the Christmas celebration”, of Christ Jesus, (supposed) birthday, as follows:

Quote:
CHRISTMAS–(i.e. The Mass of Christ). In the Christian Church, the festivity of the nativity of Christ Jesus.
Origin–Christmas, was not among the earliest festivals of the church, and before the 5th century, there was no general consensus of opinion, as to when it should come in the calendar—-Dec 25th was chosen, as taken from the (pagan) feast day of Mithros, the (pagan) Sun God; known as “The Natalis Invicti Solis”, The Birthday of the Un-conquered Sun of Philocalus. Unquote.

There is much more, added to the above excerpts, from The Encyl Brit. But let it suffice to say. That “the birth date”, selected by Vatican Rome, to (supposedly honor) Christ’s birthday Is entirely pagan in origin! As are its (now) commonly accepted pagan trappings of “the decorated Christmas tree”, etc. See Jer 10:1-5. Reason enough, to reject the entire pagan celebration. So states Gal 4:10.
