What most people do not realize is that both christmas and easter were pagan holidays long before Messiah Yeshua was born in Bethlehem. In fact, God sent the prophet Ezekiel (Ezekiel chapter 8) to warn the Priests in the Holy Temple to stop their pagan ways and to turn back to Him. the description of some of their abominations were 'weeping for tammuz' (tammuz is also known as ba-al) which is the "christian" lent, baking bread for tammuz (hot cross buns) and easter sunrise service. All of which God called an abomination. Instead of repenting, the Priests told Ezekiel "Go away, Ezekiel, we will worship God OUR way".
Back during the Exodus, when Moses went up to Mt. Sinai, Aaron and all of Israel tried to worship God with a golden calf and God nearly destroyed them for it. God gave the feasts He wants kept`and it isn't christmas or easter. God wants to be worshiped the way He told us to worship Him. he finds the paganism and traditions man has incorporated to be an abomination.
So why do people call themselves Christians when they refuse to worship God the way He wants to be worshiped and demand to worship Him the way they FEEL is right? The bible is available to all and they can read just as clearly what God wants of them. Instead of choosing to follow God the way He wants to be followed, they flock to pastors and religious leaders that make them feel good about themselves. They do not think and they go with what feels right to them. Messiah Yeshua said He will reject these false Christians because they do not follow God:
Lawless = without Torah
