Idolatry is Adultery

If you wanna celebrate Jesus, go ahead and celebrate Jesus. I’m not gonna trouble anybody for how they celebrate Jesus.

But please do not bring any pagan based idolatry into your celebration of Jesus. That is not acceptable. That is troubling. That’s all I got to say about that.

Why Was Christmas Banned in America until 1820????????

There’s so much more than this… there are so many pagan things brought into the Church by the Roman Catholicism.

People are still doing things like this using the excuse of “reaching people” to avoid God’s commandment of holiness and purity.

Pagan vs Kingdom Holidays

Main difference between pagan and Christian Holidays:

– Pagans celebrate the changes of the seasons and random stuff.

– In the Kingdom we celebrate the Acts of God towards His people Israel (including the Gentile Church).

One new Man celebrates in Christ.

Unplanned Pregnancy::The Birth of Christ

The Lord has been ministering to me about the circumstances surrounding Mary’s pregnancy and the actual birth of Christ. I have been a bit discouraged about the problems we are facing with this current pregnancy and also remembering the stress I faced when carrying Champion. I was kind of thinking ‘why can’t things be nice and easy going? Why are things so hard’? ‘It should not be this way when I am pregnant’.

For a few days after these thoughts fluttered through my mind, the Holy Spirit drew me back to the pregnancy of Mary and the birth of Christ. Were things smooth and easy?…No! Was the pregnancy divine and called of God?…YES!

Mary’s Pregnancy: Unplanned

-The Lord could have chosen to bring Christ through a couple that was already married, he chose an engaged but unmarried woman. Although Mary joyfully accepted the blessing from the Lord and was honored to be chosen (Luke 1:46-55), I am sure the pregnancy interfered with her future plans. Married women, please imagine with me how you would go about explaining to your fiance that you are pregnant, but you were not unfaithful and you are still a virgin? And as the scripture reads it seems that Joseph was not sure what to do about the relationship once he found out and he was thinking about ending it privately, but God spoke to Him:

Matthew 1:18-25

18Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

19Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.

20But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

21And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

22Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

23Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

24Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:

25And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.

-The birth of Christ had been prophesied for thousands of years, Mary and Joseph also had heavenly visitations when his arrival was near. However, when it actually happened, the natural circumstances were so ordinary, you would have missed it if you were not spiritually in-tune.

-Jesus Christ, The Anointed One, Son of Almighty God was not born in a palace, but a manger.

-The spiritual realm rejoiced, the angels sang and proclaimed when He was born, many prophesies went forth (Elizabeth prophesied, the angels, Mary herself, the shephards, Simeon and Anna in the temple, etc.) but in the natural the situation seemed chaotic! Unwed pregnancy, long distance traveling far along in the pregnancy, giving birth while out of town (women who have had babies know how unnerving these things would be), laboring and giving birth surrounded by animals! Then on top of that you have to move right after the baby is born because a crazy king wants to kill your baby?! This does not seem glorious…but oh, how glorious is truly was…if you have a spiritual understanding:

Isaiah 9:6

King James Version (KJV)

6For 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.

In conclusion, we must focus on the spiritual, on the supernatural in order to see the victory when the natural circumstances are not lining up. Joseph focused on what he saw in the spirit, what the Holy Spirit revealed to him and had the courage to marry a pregnant woman he had not touched. Mary focused on the supernatural in receiving the baby from God who would change the universe. They each had heavenly visitations and many prophesies to focus on and build their faith. They chose not to focus on the natural circumstances that seemed very unstable.

The Lord spoke to me concerning the baby I carry now. He said “as the seed of Mary’s womb was blessed, so is the seed of your womb blessed”. No, I am not carrying Jesus Christ, but the children that God is bringing into the world through my body are blessed and have a purpose in the kingdom of God. And this is where I have to direct my focus, when circumstances seem uncertain.

So as people of God we must focus on what the Word says (the supernatural) about family and children instead of the natural. What if Mary had rejected the blessing of receiving the son of God because of her natural circumstances? She believed God, and was blessed. Elizabeth prophesied to Mary “45 And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.”

The word says children are a blessing from God and a reward, should I focus on my circumstances? Or will I choose to believe God and be blessed like Mary? I choose to believe and be blessed!

Will we, as the people God has chosen, continue to reject having children? Rejecting the blessings God wants to give? What if Mary and Joseph had?
