The Mass Behind Christmas

Written by Elijah Rodgers

Christmas is celebrated on December 25. It is celebrated traditionally with the exchanging of gifts by family and friends at gatherings with feasting, music, and the decoration of evergreen trees. The lie is given to children that Santa Claus will give gifts on Christmas eve December 24. That is a lie! Many people of God participate in the celebration of this holiday, but is this of God?

Monstrace FranisFrancis holding monstrance during MassThe word Christmas is from the word Christ’s mass which is the celebration of the Eucharist. The celebration of the Eucharist is very blasphemous against God. In the celebration of the Eucharist the priest claims to have power to bring Jesus from heaven and change the bread to the literal body of Jesus Christ. They claim to have the power to change the fermented wine (which was not fermented wine or grape juice when Jesus had communion) into the literal blood of Jesus Christ. In reality the bread represents the symbolic body of Jesus which He gave for the life of the world. The not fermented wine represents Jesus Christ’s “blood of the new testament” which was “shed for many for the remission of sins.” Matthew 26:28. This is done in commemoration of Jesus Christ as He said in Luke 22:19 “this do in remembrance of me.”

However, the Catholic church says “O venerable sanctity of the hands! O happy function of the priest! He that created (if I may say so) gave me the power to create him; and he that created me without me is himself created by me!' As the Word of God created heaven and earth, so, says St. Jerome, the words of the priest create Jesus Christ.” Alphonsus de Liguori, Dignity and Duties of the Priest or Selva pg. 32 & 33. Oh how blasphemous!!! The mass is of the devil. Should God’s people partake in the celebration of Christmas? NO, NO!!! There is nothing bad about remembering the birth of Christ. We should remember His birth, life, death, and resurrection. But Christmas is not about the birth of Christ it is very blasphemous and it also has to do with sun worship.

On top of some Christmas trees is something called a monstrance. What is that? A monstrance is a vessel that Catholic and Anglican churcheChristmas treeMonstrance on top of Christmas trees use to display the eucharistic bread. The monstrance has a sunburst around it. That is a symbol of sun worship. The greatest of all abominations that God showed Ezekiel in vision was when “about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun.” Ezekiel 8:16. On many Christmas trees the monstrance is on top showing that Christmas is really about sun worship. They can come in many different shapes some come in the form of stars and some as a snowflake, but all about sun worship.

A big christian tradition is to sing Christmas chorals, such as “Silent Night Holy Night,” and “O Holy Night” at family gatherings and at church. But did you know that some of these songs are songs about mass? Let’s look at some examples. “O Holy Night”. O Holy Night is a very popular Christian Christmas choral in the United States. It was made when a Catholic priest asked a man named, Placide Cappeau to write a poem for him about Christmas. Placide Cappeau was a wine merchant, a poet, as well an atheist. Even though being an atheist he wrote the poem “O Holy Night”.

The first sentence of the first verse says “O holy night! The stars are brightly shining,

It is the night of our dear Saviour's birth.” and the chorus says “Fall on your knees! O hear the angel voices! O night divine, O night when Christ was born; O night divine, O night, O night Divine.” Was the night of the birth of the Savior of the world, Christ Jesus, holy? Holy means consecrated hallowed blessed sanctified. Was the night consecrated hallowed and sanctified? No. It was not the night that was hallowed and sanctified. The One that was hallowed and sanctified was Jesus Christ! Even in the song “Silent Night Holy Night” the night is called “holy”. So what night were they talking about? They are talking about the “holy communion” which is another term for mass. The first part of the chorus says “Fall on your knees!” There is something called Eucharistic adoration. During Eucharist adoration the congregation kneels and adores or worships the “blessed sacraments” the bread and the wine, which they believe is the literal body and blood of Christ. Thinking that by worshiping the “blessed sacraments” they are worshiping Jesus. But they are worshiping a false eucharistic christ.
All of God’s people should have nothing to do with the celebration of Christmas. Christmas is not about the celebration of the birth of the true JESUS of the Bible. It is a celebration of mass and worship to the sun. It is blasphemous. The profess people of God that participate in the celebration of Christmas are participating in the celebration of mass. The things that have a form of godliness like people claim Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Christ, but really denies and blasphemes the true Christ. The Bible says “from such turn away.”
2 Timothy 3:5.
