To Believe A Lie
by D. J. Love, TSN, SBC
2 Thessalonians 2:7-12
7 For the mystery of lawlessness (disobedience) does already work (mystery began just before the sacrifice of Messiah Yahshua). Only there is one who restrains now, until he is taken out of the way.
8 Then will the lawless (disobedient & without Love) one be revealed, whom the Kurios (Links in green) will kill with the 'Spirit of his Mouth' (Knowledge of Truth in Righteousness), and bring to nothing by the brightness (Righteousness) of his coming;
9 even he (the "Make Believe" messiah - IHS) whose coming is according to the working (deception) of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 and with all deception of wickedness for those Sabbath Millennium who are being lost, because they (The Many) didn't receive (by freewill choice) the love of the truth, that they might be saved (with The Few / Matthew 20:16).
11 Because of this ("Error" in unrighteous judgement), G-d sends them (allows them to have) a working of error (false belief in deception or fables), that they should believe a lie (follow Satan's false Messiah - IHS / mystery began just before the sacrifice of Messiah Yahshua);
12 so that they all might be judged who didn't (choose to) believe the truth, but had (taken) pleasure in unrighteousness.
This message was actually inspired by a talk I had with one of my female co-workers at the job I used to maintain for personal income. I do not receive income as a minister or servant to YHVH, as I don't believe in ministers being salaried (Where's the Love?). During my conversation with her the topic wandered over onto Santa Claus, and she was telling me how it is that she actually wanted her children to believe in something magical; something that sparks 'wide-eyed' imagination. All the while, I was thinking to myself, if you only knew or wanted to KNOW the REAL TRUTH, as there is nothing more inspiring or fulfilling to the heart than the KNOWLEDGE of The TRUTH. I believe that it was only because of our previously established friendship that she even allowed me to plant a few seeds of TRUTH, which (I am sure) had to cast some doubt upon her chosen beliefs concerning the fairy tales of Xmas (both Santa Claus & IHS), and the date of our Messiah's birth (Links in green). I did my best to present TRUTH as historic fact, rather than opinion, and did not press her to concede. We parted somewhat friendly (she actually retreated to her cubical), and I came home wondering if I had made the best of what might have been my first and last opportunity to reach her with the TRUTH. I can only plant seeds, it is up to YHVH to see to it that those seeds gets watered. At least she won't ever be able to say to me, that I never took the opportunity to inform her. She won't be able to accuse me of not being her true friend or extending to her The Holy Spirit of True Love, which is always there, and all she has to do is not run away. So now, you (as the reader of Truth), and I (as a writer of Truth) are left with this one last question. Why does mankind take . . . . . . .
Pleasure in Unrighteousness that they
and their children should believe a lie?
2 Timothy 4:2-5
3 For the time will come (mystery began just before the personal sacrifice of Messiah Yahshua) when they will not listen to sound doctrine, but, having itching ears, will heap up for themselves teachers after their own lusts;
4 and will turn away their ears from the truth, and will turn aside to fables.
5 But you be sober in all things, suffer hardship, do the work of an evangelist, and fulfill your ministry.
It may seem like a trivial thing to desire (lust) for a world of mystery, magic, and 'wide-eyed' "Make Believe."
BUT just how "Trivial" is it, when Our Eternal Father has stated (above in 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12) that those that choose to believe in fables (lies) will be judged for that mental attitude sin. Not only will be judged, but will not receive Salvation by reason of their guilt (verse 10)?
Even worse is that they heap up for themselves teachers after their own lusts.
So now this so called "Trivial Thing" becomes a (heaped up) social event, wherein "Unrighteousness Reinforces Unrighteousness," AND as a social event (false religions, church, holidays, traditions of man) condemns society in general to "Spiritual Death."
Are people so miserable with their unexciting and "Magic-less" world that they have to spent their whole life seeking out various forms of "Escape?" Is this why sports, illicit sex, movies and television in general, fun in general, political or social Power, crime, alcohol/drugs, "Romance" novels, daydreaming, and (yes, to name another) even suicide are so popular? Nowhere in today's society are these forms of escape from 'True Reality' more popular than in our children. AND these are the same children that were TAUGHT to place their pleasure, faith or trust in "MAKE BELIEVE." We INSTILLED IT into them! How dare we, as a society, corrupt innocent children for the purpose of reinforcing our own lusts? Furthermore, whenever ignorance is self-imposed, ignorance is eliminated as an excuse! As a society, we are teaching our children to PREFER LIES (especially fun lies or fables) over reality. A reality that, quite frankly, very few are even aware of in this day and time. What a paradox life is!The very thing we need to "Set Us Free" is the very thing that we, as a society, try to escape from. . . . . TRUTH!
John 8:32 (True Worshippers Only)
You shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you Free.
How ironic the movie "Matrix" is!
So why do people take . . . . . . .
Pleasure in Unrighteousness
that they should believe a lie?
Could it be because we, as a society, have swallowed the lie that Our Eternal Father seeks only perfect children, and we known in our dark hearts that we are NOT PERFECT, and therefore, unworthy? Is this the (misunderstood) reality that we are trying to escape from? Is this not, also, the very same deception that has caused (and causes) most of mankind to seek an EASY salvation through the most popular false religion of all time? A false religion with a "Make Believe Savior" (Anti-Messiah / IHS) that was allegedly born on the day after the shortest day of the year, according to the Original ROMAN Julian Calendar (December 25th - birthday of The Sun gods), and who, according to the ROMAN catholic church and her Protestant daughter churches, promises salvation to all who simply believe that he (Jesus or IHS) is not only the 'Son of G-d', but also, G-d (Himself) in "The Flesh." That all we have to do is "Believe and get Baptized" in the Name of the "Make Believe" Trinity (evolved from pagan roots), and when we do, we will "ALWAYS BE SAVED" (Once Saved Always Saved). See "Doctrine".
Is there any wonder, that those religious societies that have historically sponsored THESE LIES, are also the same religious societies that have murdered Sabbath Keepers and others in the name of their SUN god (The Crusades, All of The Inquisitions, The Holocaust of WWII, etc...). I therefore submit that "Make Believe" is not only not trivial, but is dangerous to the Righteous Spiritual Growth of children, and to society (mankind) as a whole.
See the message "True Perfection"
27 When calamity overtakes you like a storm, When your disaster comes on like a whirlwind; When distress and anguish come on you.
28 Then will they (who seek pleasure in unrighteousness) call on me (in prayer), but I will not answer. They will seek me diligently (through much prayer & study), but they will not find me;
29 Because they hated knowledge (of The TRUTH), And didn't choose the fear of YHVH (no real obedience, love, trust, faith or respect).
30 They (who choose to believe in lies) wanted none of my counsel. They (who follow the commandments of men) despised all my reproof.
31 Therefore they (who seek pleasure in unrighteousness) will eat of the fruit of their own way, And be filled with their own schemes.
32 For the backsliding of the simple (Spiritually Lazy) will kill them. The careless ease of fools will destroy them.
33 But whoever listens to me will dwell securely, And will be at ease, without fear of harm."

The Julian, and Gregorian Calendars
Note: In 46 BC, when the Roman "Julian Calendar" was adopted, December 24th was the shortest day of the year. Therefore, December 25th was the first annual day that daylight began to increase. Thus, the origin of the REBIRTH or Annual Birthday of the Invincible SUN.
In accordance with the Roman "Julian calendar," the "Saturnalia" festival appears to have taken place on December 17th; it was preceded by the "Consualia" near December 15th, and followed by the "Opalia" on December 19th. These pagan celebrations of the Brumalia typically lasted for a week, ending just before the late Roman Imperial Festival for "Sol Invictus" (Invincible Sun) on December 25th.
In 1582 AD. Roman catholic Pope Gregory the XIII caused the current "Gregorian Calendar" to be adopted, in order to eliminate the solar time shift error that was introduced over the time period of 1,629 years by the inaccurate "Julian Calendar."
By December 1582 AD the shortest day of the year on the Roman "Julian Calendar" had shifted 12 days from Dec. 24, 46 BC. to Wednesday, Dec. 12, 1582 AD.
However, the Original December 25th 'Birth Date' was retained for all pagan Sun gods by the Roman "Saturnalia," "Consualia," "Opalia," and "Sol Invictus" traditions; which were now incorporated into the catholic "Twelve Days of Christ-mass" (The Egyptians had a different 12 day festival known today as the Epiphany).
On the new Roman catholic Gregorian calendar the shortest annual day was numerically shifted back 10 days to the 22nd of December, where it remains to this day; while the original order of the seven days of the week remained unchanged.
Therefore, Wednesday, December 12th, 1582 AD, became Wednesday, December 22nd, 1582 AD, and the True Sabbath Day (Friday sunset to Saturday sunset) remained unchanged.
YHVH, the Only True G-d, would never have allowed The True Messiah to be born on or near the December 25th birthday period of the pagan Sun gods; during the time in which virgins were sacrificed, murder was commonplace, and orgies the norm. This would be an entirely unacceptable association of Good and evil.

Winter Solstice Festivals
August 21st and December 15th
The Consualia is a festival which honors the pagan deity, Consus, who protects the stored harvest. The harvest grains were stored in underground vaults at the end of the, August, fall harvest; underground is, also, where the temple of Consus was supposed to be. This pagan temple was covered with earth all year and was only uncovered for this one day.
The pagan deity Mars, as a protector of the harvest, was also honored during "The Consualia"; as were the Lares (the household gods). Additionally, irregular chariot races pulled by mules were held in the Circus Maximus, as part of the ceremonies.
Interestingly enough, the Rape of the Sabine women took place under Romulus during "The Consualia". Seeing a need to increase the population of Rome, Romulus authorized each Roman to forcibly take women from the visiting Sabines as their wives, but only as appropriate to their social status.
On December 15th the stored harvests were opened up for winter distribution, and "The Consualia" was again celebrated as a time to rejoice in the return of the harvest. This, also, became known as "Market Day."
A ROMAN festival in honor of the pagan goddess Opis, which was celebrated on the 14th day before the Calends of January (Dec. 19th), being the third day of the Saturnalia, which was also originally celebrated on the same day, when only one day was devoted to the latter festival. It was believed that Opis was the wife of Saturnus, and for this reason the festivals (Saturnalia and Opalia) were celebrated at the same time. The worshippers of Opis paid their vows sitting, and touched the earth on purpose, of which she was the goddess.
Excerpts: Saturnalia festivities began with ritual and sacrifices in the Temple of Saturn. The statue of the god was hollow and filled with olive oil, as a symbol of his agricultural functions. His feet were bound with woolen strips, that were unbound at Saturnalia.
After the rituals, the Senators (who had to be present) dismissed the crowd with the cry of "Io, Saturnalia!", a sign for the happy festivities of family parties and other private gatherings to begin. The traditional gifts were wax tapers and little dolls, although gifts of silver later became traditional.
The custom of the Lord of Misrule was appropriated and survived through to English Christmas traditions.
Many of the decorations involved greenery - swathes, garlands, wreaths, etc - being hung over doorways and windows, and ornamenting stairs. Ornaments in the trees included sun symbols, stars, and faces of the YHVH Janus. Trees were not brought indoors (the Germans started that tradition), but decorated where they grew.
