Because Messiah said it is the greatest Commandment! Mark 12:28-29 28And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that He had answered them well, asked Him, “ Which is the greatest commandment of all ?” 29And Yeshua answered him, “The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is One Lord:”
We say the L-rd’s Prayer (Our Prayer) because Yeshua told us this is how we should pray. We pray so G-d will hear our petitions and grant whichever prayers are in accord with His will. We also pray In order to bless Him.

We’ll read… Gen. 39 whole chapter Amos 3:1-8 Acts 7:9-16 Gen. 37:1-40:23 Amos 2:6-3:8 Acts 7:9-16 Vah Yishlach Dec 17, 2011 Kislev 21, 5772
1 And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him of the hands of the Ishmeelites, which had brought him down thither. 2 And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian. Gen. 39 whole chapter
3 And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand. 4 And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand. Gen. 39 whole chapter
5 And it came to pass from the time that he had made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that the LORD blessed the Egyptian's house for Joseph's sake; and the blessing of the LORD was upon all that he had in the house, and in the field. Gen. 39 whole chapter
6 And he left all that he had in Joseph's hand; and he knew not ought he had, save the bread which he did eat. And Joseph was a goodly person, and well favoured. 7 And it came to pass after these things, that his master's wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me. 8 But he refused, and said unto his master's wife, Gen. 39 whole chapter
Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand; 9 There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God? Gen. 39 whole chapter
10 And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her. 11 And it came to pass about this time, that Joseph went into the house to do his business; and there was none of the men of the house there within. Gen. 39 whole chapter
12 And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out. 13 And it came to pass, when she saw that he had left his garment in her hand, and was fled forth, Gen. 39 whole chapter
14 That she called unto the men of her house, and spake unto them, saying, See, he hath brought in an Hebrew unto us to mock us; he came in unto me to lie with me, and I cried with a loud voice: 15 And it came to pass, when he heard that I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled, and got him out. 16 And she laid up his garment by her, until his lord came home. Gen. 39 whole chapter
17 And she spake unto him according to these words, saying, The Hebrew servant, which thou hast brought unto us, came in unto me to mock me: 18 And it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled out. Gen. 39 whole chapter
19 And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his wife, which she spake unto him, saying, After this manner did thy servant to me; that his wrath was kindled. 20 And Joseph's master took him, and put him into the prison, a place where the king's prisoners were bound : and he was there in the prison. Gen. 39 whole chapter
21 But the LORD was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison. 22 And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph's hand all the prisoners that were in the prison ; and whatsoever they did there, he was the doer of it. Gen. 39 whole chapter
23 The keeper of the prison looked not to any thing that was under his hand; because the LORD was with him, and that which he did, the LORD made it to prosper. (Baruch HaShem) Gen. 39 whole chapter
1 Hear this word that the LORD hath spoken against you, O children of Israel, against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt, saying, 2 You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities. Amos 3:1-8
3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed ? 4 Will a lion roar in the forest, when he hath no prey? will a young lion cry out of his den, if he have taken nothing? 5 Can a bird fall in a snare upon the earth, where no gin is for him? shall one take up a snare from the earth, and have taken nothing at all ? Amos 3:1-8
6 Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid ? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it? 7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. Amos 3:1-8
8 The lion hath roared, who will not fear ? the Lord GOD hath spoken, who can but prophesy ? (Baruch HaShem) Amos 3:1-8
9 And the patriarchs, moved with envy, sold Joseph into Egypt: but God was with him, 10 And delivered him out of all his afflictions, and gave him favour and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and he made him governor over Egypt and all his house. Acts 7:9-16
11 Now there came a dearth over all the land of Egypt and Chanaan, and great affliction: and our fathers found no sustenance. 12 But when Jacob heard that there was corn in Egypt, he sent out our fathers first. Acts 7:9-16
13 And at the second time Joseph was made known to his brethren; and Joseph's kindred was made known unto Pharaoh. 14 Then sent Joseph, and called his father Jacob to him, and all his kindred, threescore and fifteen souls. Acts 7:9-16
15 So Jacob went down into Egypt, and died, he, and our fathers, 16 And were carried over into Sychem, and laid in the sepulchre that Abraham bought for a sum of money of the sons of Emmor the father of Sychem. (Baruch HaShem) Acts 7:9-16
Merry Satanmas (Slide) “Hey now, that’s not right. Rabbi you can’t celebrate Satanmas!” Well, that’s not the way I celebrate it. I celebrate Satanmas and remember that the Christ was born.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) When I celebrate Satanmas, I also put up pentagrams all over my house. “No! don’t you know that the pentagram is a Satanic Symbol?”
Merry Satanmas (Slide) Oh, I don’t use it that way silly. I use it to represent the star over Bethlehem. Then I slaughter a chicken and I throw the blood from it all over my house.
Merry Satanmas “(Slide) That’s awful, listen brother, you have got to stop doing this!” Oh ok, well, here’s what I’ll do. I’ll make the pentagrams smaller…
Merry Satanmas (Slide) I’ll call my celebration oh, Santamas and I’ll slaughter the chicken but only put the drops of blood in places you wont see. Is that ok? Ok, yes that would be fine.
Merry Satanmas What’s wrong with this conversation? Just because we change something a little from it’s original wickedness doesn’t make it ok.
Merry Satanmas Just because we have a smaller Christmas tree then last year or we still say Merry Christmas to our Gentile neighbors, doesn’t make it right.
Merry Satanmas Now, I’m not the Christmas Concierge. If you invite me to your house and you have a Christmas tree or some other pagan idols in your house, you don’t have to explain nothing to me.
Merry Satanmas This is between you and G-d. Some of you are just now learning about the pagan origins of Christmas (and you’ll be learning a little more today )
Merry Satanmas Everybody is on a different level! The person with the Christmas tree may be closer to G-d then you or me. It may be their only hangup.
Merry Satanmas Or, that person may be operating within everything they know. That’s what being closer to G-d is exactly.
Merry Satanmas Some of us long time Messianics may not have a Christmas tree but we may be far from G-d because we never learned the lesson on patience that G-d has been teaching us for 20 years.
Merry Satanmas I fall a little more into that category then I’d like myself to admit. It is all about what you know. Let me tell you a story…
Merry Satanmas I remember when I was about 15 years old. We were here back in the States for 3 months. We were traveling from Church to Church, my dad was teaching on prophecy.
Merry Satanmas Not often, but sometimes a sinner will get convicted during one of my dad’s teachings concerning prophecy. Prophecy is really more geared towards those who already know G-d.
Merry Satanmas Once in a blue moon someone will be there who is unsaved and they get convicted and want to become a Believer. This was such a night.
Merry Satanmas I remember a young man came up to my dad afterwards. He was about 18 years old and he was so excited about what dad had taught on.
Merry Satanmas It had made a big impression on him obviously. And he asked dad to pray for him to become a Believer. So of course my dad walks over to pray for him…
Merry Satanmas And when he gets close he smells a very strong smell of marijuana. Well, this kid wasn’t using it for medical purposes or anything like that.
Merry Satanmas He was doing it illegally and for recreation. He wasn’t like stoned out of his mind or anything, but he was high. Dad prayed with him and the guy gave his life to G-d.
Merry Satanmas Dad mentioned it to my mom and me afterwards but figured, the boy was sincere and that he’d get off the drugs.
Merry Satanmas This was a seminar that my dad was doing at this particular church and so we had a few more days there. This was back in the late 70’s about.
Merry Satanmas The very next night, that young man was back again with some of his friends. He loved the teaching and came up right afterwards to talk to my dad, very excited.
Merry Satanmas And my dad notices that he’s reeking of marijuana again. Dad was a little taken back but was nice to the guy and off the guy went after they talked.
Merry Satanmas and again my dad mentioned to me and my mom that the kid was high. 3 rd night, the same thing again. They guy comes up and tells dad how much he liked it and that he’s…
Merry Satanmas Changed his life because of his new salvation with Yeshua. He told my dad he’d been telling all his friends about Yeshua and they’re coming to the meetings with him.
Merry Satanmas but he still was reeking of marijuana. So my dad took him over to the side and said to him. I can’t help but notice, you smell like marijuana.
Merry Satanmas And the boy just said it as plain as can be, “Yeah, me and my friends were smoking just before we got here”. My dad then had a revelation…
Merry Satanmas He realized that the boy had no idea that what he was doing was wrong.
Merry Satanmas He may have even known it was against the law but there are other laws that people break and think nothing of it. So he told this boy, he said, “Abusing drugs is wrong.”
Merry Satanmas Dad said the kid looked at him with disbelief and said, nah, it is? It was no act, he just didn’t really think it was bad. His parents smoked it, all his friends smoked it.
Merry Satanmas He believed my dad but it was hard for him to make that register. The young man quit after that.
Merry Satanmas But it was a lesson to my dad. He realized from that day on, it’s all about what you know.
Merry Satanmas Does that mean you shouldn’t get rid of your Christmas tree? Absolutely you should get rid of it.
Merry Satanmas But do it because you love G-d so much that you don’t want anything to come between you and Him.
Merry Satanmas Here’s some other Christmas excuses you may run into. “I don’t worship my Christmas tree like the pagans did, so it’s ok. It’s all about the heart.”
Merry Satanmas If a severely mentally retarded child, a child of say 16 years old, he has almost zero going on in his mind, but is still mobile….
Merry Satanmas If he picks up a gun and kills his parents with it what should be done about that? Should we just say, no problem, it wasn’t in his heart. Yeah maybe we shouldn’t punish him…
Merry Satanmas But shouldn’t we take the gun away? I understand, it may not be in your heart to worship a Christmas tree, but we can’t have evil in our home and think all is well.
Merry Satanmas I shouldn’t have pentagrams and other cultic symbols in my house and think it’s ok just because I think it’s ok. Think about this example…
Merry Satanmas I know a lot of Christians don’t like Halloween, unfortunately many do celebrate it, but there’s a lot who don’t.
Merry Satanmas It’s always amazing to me that those who refuse to do anything on Halloween don’t get this. They wont have any jack-o-lanterns in their house during this holiday.
Merry Satanmas No ghosts or ghouls. They tell me those are “Satanic symbols” and about it’s horrible origins and
Merry Satanmas they look down at their other Christian brothers and sisters if they participate in that holiday. And yet they celebrate Christmas. Isn’t that hypocritical?
Merry Satanmas (Slide) “Now wait just a second! Halloween was a day that was originally made for worshipping the Devil.”
Merry Satanmas (Slide) “But, but the symbols of Halloween aren’t pleasing to God!”
Merry Satanmas (Slide) “Halloween doesn’t have anything to do with God!”
Merry Satanmas To those who still celebrate Christmas who tell me it’s all about the “heart” I say…
Merry Satanmas Do what is correct first, by obeying G-d…then tell me about your “heart”. Mark 7:9 says…
Merry Satanmas (Slide) (Mark 7:9). 9 Full well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your own tradition. Those who celebrate Christmas are rejecting G-d’s commandments so they can keep their tradition of Christmas.
Merry Satanmas Flat out – G-d does NOT appreciate His Children participating in anything Pagan. G-d does NOT appreciate His Children participating in anything pagan.
Merry Satanmas When someone who knows better tells me that God understands because He knows their heart… All I hear is “I don’t wanna give up my Christmas!!!”
Merry Satanmas I’ll also tell you this… There is something spiritual to hanging on to things not of G-d. It makes no sense to hold onto things that are un-biblical.
Merry Satanmas It is no different to G-d then saying you still want to hold onto a little adultery then it is to saying you still want to hold onto a little paganism.
Merry Satanmas Again, I’m not a Christmas cop, don’t explain to me why you still have Christmas paraphernalia in your house when you invite me over.
Merry Satanmas Because it’s not my job to force, coerce or convict you and I’m being very clear about that. At the same time, please understand that I may become un- nerved when I see these things.
Merry Satanmas That doesn’t mean I’m shovin it down your throat. And if you start telling me that it’s ok to have pagan symbols and I say, no it’s not, it’s not me pushing you on the topic, it’s you pushing me.
Merry Satanmas I have the truth behind me on this subject. So have your Christmas tree but don’t try to shove it down my throat or the throat of your brothers and sisters here.
Merry Satanmas I’ll also tell you why I still do get un-nerved when I see a Christmas tree…
Merry Satanmas It’s because I know where they come from. It was part of pagan fertility worship.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) The Christmas Tree is a representation of a phallus (male sexual organ), which was the spirit of fertility. Gifts from the tree actually symbolize what springs from the phallus.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) Let me tell you something else about that. Do you know what an obelisk is?
Merry Satanmas They date to the time of Tammuz. In later Egyptian history they were used to represent a petrified ray of the sun disk.
Merry Satanmas But prior to that they were used in worship of the reproductive powers.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) This symbol of the phallus was used when the United States was first formed. It was erected in honor of the father of America, George Washington.
Merry Satanmas These standing stones are an abomination unto G-d.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) Deut. 16:22 Likewise, do not set up a standing- stone; ADONAI your God hates such things.” Exod. 23:24 You are not to worship their gods, serve them or follow their practices; rather, you are to demolish them completely and smash their standing-stones to pieces.”
Merry Satanmas They used to put these standing stones in their places of worship.
Merry Satanmas It was adopted by Christianity. We see it at the center of the Vatican prominently displayed. (Slide)
(Slide) Why so much sexual immorality with the Catholic priests? I dunno, it’s a mystery.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) It was soon incorporated into the very construction of the Church itself… That’s what a church steeple is.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) They’ve been altered a little at times… But it’s the same thing. Every Church goer that walks through their doors has to walk under the phallus.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) Welcome to G-d’s house. “Now, wait just a second. The steeple was used to put the church bells in and it was the highest point so that everyone in the town could hear them.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) They were used for that …. later! Also in the middle ages, in man’s infinite wisdom they stationed gargoyles around the steeples.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) The Church placed them there because they decided it would scare away the demons. The Adversary was thinking, “How can I get engraved demons actually posted right on the Church building itself?”.
Merry Satanmas But you know, Demons were in the church before that…
Merry Satanmas (Slide) The engraved idol of Nike has been there for centuries. Outside of it and inside of it.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) The very things that G-d does NOT want in His sanctuary is exactly what’s there. That’s too much of a coincidence. It’s outright rebellion.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) The wreath… the wreath makes up the other half of the Christmas tree set. It represents the woman’s genitals.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) It doesn’t matter what it’s made from or the different styles they have, it’s still a wreath.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) So if you ask me why all the boys are coming around your house after your teenage daughters…
Merry Satanmas (Slide) I’ll tell you take off the giant genitalia you have on your door. What exactly are you advertising???
Merry Satanmas Now that you’re armed with this information… does this next picture look like a pretty house or a brothel to you? (Slide)
(Slide) Can we get the minister to stand right between two of them and a wreath right at the alter? Score one for the Adversary!
Merry Satanmas The holy union of marriage. What are they bowing before? Christmas trees and a wreath!
Merry Satanmas “Oh, it doesn’t matter what you have on your door Rabbi”
Merry Satanmas (Slide) Tell that to the children of Egypt!
Merry Satanmas (Slide) If they didn’t have the right thing on their door… their first born died. Apparently it IS important what’s on your door!
Merry Satanmas Let’s talk about the ancient symbol of the false god Tammuz for a moment then we’ll get back to Christmas. Do you know what that symbol is?
Merry Satanmas (Slide) It was the cross! That cross was used for human sacrifice which later on the Romans adopted in order to crucify criminals. crucifixion of Greek god Dionysus worshipped from c. 1500—1100 BC
Merry Satanmas (Slide) The Church Father St. Augustine said… "Whatever has been said by the pagans, we must appropriate to our uses". He wasn’t whistling dixie. St. Augustine.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) The cross was derived from the age-old fertility symbol, combining the vertical male and horizontal female principles.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) It’s called the winged phallus and they also wore it around their necks. A bronze winged phallus Bronze winged phallus
Merry Satanmas (Slide) Come up to the alter and bow before the cross. There’s something very wrong going on here.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) Should we be bowing before this cursed symbol?
Merry Satanmas The truth is…We shouldn’t bow before ANY symbol. We should only bow before G-d!
Merry Satanmas (Slide) Ps. 95:6 says… O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the L-RD our maker. Romans 14:11 says…For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. It doesn’t say anything about bowing down to a cross! Bowing before anything other then G-d is pagan.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) The round ornaments that are hung from Christmas trees used to actually be animal testicles. Try to get that picture out of your mind next time you hang one up.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) And what tops it all off? You got it… an idol of Nike! That aint no angel. No angel has 2 wings. Yeshua isn’t anywhere in sight.
Merry Satanmas Honestly, it makes me sick. I know how it hurts the heart of G-d rather you believe it does or not.
Merry Satanmas So when I see these things in a Christian home or in the sanctuary of a Church, sometimes it surprises me a little.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) You know those shimmering snake like things people put around the tree? You know where that came from?
Merry Satanmas (Slide) They were very commonly used in Paganism. It represented The Snake wrapped around a tree.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) Satan has his fingers in everything Christmas! Do what is correct, then tell me about your “heart”.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) Let’s talk about Santa Clause. He is Satan’s replacement for Yeshua.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) SANTA LIVES FOREVER He never dies, just keeps on going YESHUA LIVES FOREVER He has no beginning and no end. SANTA IS COMING SOON During the Christmas season it is emphasized over and over that "Santa is coming". YESHUA IS COMING SOON "He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus." (Rev. 22:20)
Merry Satanmas (Slide) SANTA IS OMNISCIENT Children are taught that Santa "knows when you've been good, and he knows when you've been bad". YESHUA IS OMNISCIENT "The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good." (Pro. 15:3) "And Yeshua knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?" (Mat. 9:4)
Merry Satanmas (Slide) SANTA IS OMNIPRESENT Santa must be omnipresent, because he has the ability to visit billions of homes in a twenty-four hour period. YESHUA IS OMNIPRESENT "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." (Mat. 18:20)
Merry Satanmas (Slide) SANTA IS OMNIPOTENT He has the ability to carry billions of presents. YESHUA IS OMNIPOTENT "And Yeshua came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth." (Mat. 28:18)
Merry Satanmas (Slide) SANTA HAS SPIRIT HELPERS CALLED ELVES Webster, 1828: "ELF...a spirit, the night-mar; a ghost, hag, witch" YESHUA HAS SPIRIT HELPERS CALLED ANGELS "Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him." (Mat. 4:11)
Merry Satanmas (Slide) Santa has a flying chariot. So does Yeshua, he sent it once for Elijah.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) Santa Clause came from the story of Saint Nickolas also called Nikolaos of Myra. He lived in the 4th-century and was the Greek Bishop of Myra which is part of modern-day Turkey.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) The name Santa Claus, comes from the Dutch Sinterklaas, which is their transliteration of "Saint Nikolaos“
Merry Satanmas he was imprisoned by the Emperor, Diocletian, and was released by Constantine after which he was an avid supporter of Constantine and his paganized theology.
Merry Satanmas “Oh you Messianics are going too far with this whole Christmas thing, we do it in remembrance of Jesus and His birth”. The Disciples never celebrated His birthday.
Merry Satanmas Origin said it was a sin to celebrate Christmas. When speaking of the birthdays of Saints or Jesus he wrote… "Sinners alone, not saints, celebrate their birthday,".
Merry Satanmas That’s their Church father that wrote that.
Merry Satanmas “Christians” were trying to blend something about ‘Jesus’ with paganism and then they tried to call it something good and holy.
Merry Satanmas They said, “Well, we do it in remembrance of the birth of Christ”. “In my heart I do it as unto God”.
Merry Satanmas They might as well be saying…“I celebrate Paganism (Satanism, let’s face it) with a little bit of God in it”. They might as well be saying…
Merry Satanmas “I want people to think I’m a Christian even though I’m still a part of the world”. They are saying in essence, “I will decide what I celebrate regardless of what God says and don’t you even try to take that away from me.”
Merry Satanmas You see, once “I” becomes the dominant figure, G-d is pushed aside. G-d isn't going to punish you if you decide to celebrate Christmas… He’ll simply leave you unclean.
Merry Satanmas “””But Brother, you do not understand. You are being legalistic. We do not worship the tree, for we know better as Believers.”
Merry Satanmas Scripture is clear! (Slide) Deut.7:25-26 The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire; thou SHALL Not desire the silver or the gold that is on them, NOR TAKE IT UNTO THEE, lest thou be snared therein, for it is an ABOMINATION to the Lord thy God. Neither shall thou bring an abomination INTO THINE HOUSE, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: but thou shall UTTERLY DETEST, and thou shall UTTERLY ABHOR it, for it is a cursed thing"—
Merry Satanmas (Slide) Deuteronomy 12:30-31 Goes on… TAKE HEED to thyself that thou inquire NOT after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? Even so will I do likewise. THOU SHALL NOT do so unto the Lord thy God!! For every abomination to the Lord which HE hateth, have they done unto their gods. Verse 32, "What thing soever I COMMAND you, observe to do it!! Thou shalt not add thereto nor diminish from it.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) Jer. 10:1 says… This is what the LORD says: "Do not learn the ways of the Gentiles or be terrified by signs in the sky, though the Gentiles are terrified by them. 3 For the customs of the peoples are worthless; they cut a tree out of the forest, and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel. 4 They adorn it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so it will not totter.
Merry Satanmas “But it’s pretty!” What’s pretty to us may not be pretty to G-d. We need to conform to what His idea of “pretty” is.
Merry Satanmas G-d is not supposed to conform to what we think is beautiful. We’re to conform to what His idea of beauty is.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) The Yule Log burning is beautiful yes? The Yule Log. Yule Tide Greeting Cards are lovely.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) Years ago when I was a kid, I remember the Christian kids jumping over the lit Yule log. Jumping over the small fire.
Merry Satanmas They stopped doing that here though because some kids caught fire and it was deemed to dangerous. Americans are so under the Law!
Merry Satanmas (Slide) It was the tradition that the children would go and fetch the Yule log that was going to be burned. Children fetching the Yule Log!
Merry Satanmas (Slide) It’s a pretty scene isn’t it? Children fetching the Yule Log!
Merry Satanmas (Slide) Yule log cakes are delicious.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) Some don’t have the whole Yule log cake, they just have Yule log cupcakes. You know…Christmas cupcakes.
Merry Satanmas (Slide) Funny how we’ve forgotten that the Yule Log is what was used to burn live babies to death in the fires of Moloch. That’s is the origin of the Yule Log.
Merry Satanmas They’d get the Yule Log burning hot then they’d throw in their babies. That’s where we got children jumping over the Yule Log from.
Merry Satanmas Is that beautiful? Whose definition of beauty are we using?
Merry Satanmas (Slide) A couple kissing below the mistletoe. Beautiful picture of love and affection. It makes a pretty card Where did that come from?
Merry Satanmas (Slide) Mistletoe was sacred to the druid priests, was worshipped by them and used to cast spells. If held over the head of a woman, she was powerless to resist...
Merry Satanmas and any and all could have their way with her (today we call it rape). This is where the tradition of hanging it over a doorway to catch the unsuspecting girl comes from.
Merry Satanmas Rape isn’t pretty. What if you decorate rape? What if you put shiny things on it? Is it pretty then? It’s still isn’t pretty is it?
Merry Satanmas When the mistletoe was nailed over the doorpost it would secrete a white sticky goo. They called that goo, the semen of the gods. So romantic.

Merry Satanmas There’s so much more we could talk about here as to what’s wrong with Christmas. This isn’t exhaustive by any stretch.
Merry Satanmas Make Chanukah your time of celebration. Make Purim your time of celebration. These are G-d’s Feasts. Let the paganism go. You don’t need it as much as you might think you do.
Merry Satanmas You’ll only find true joy in G-d’s ways. Never in Paganism. Paganism is dirty and if you want to be dirty, G-d wont cleanse you against your will.
Merry Satanmas If you desire, G-d will leave you unclean. You can be full of the Christmas spirit. That spirit will oblige you and fill you right up!
Merry Satanmas (Slide) Yes, G-d knows our hearts and our hearts need cleansing. Shabbat Shalom.
