Christmas – More inspiration

This is already Christmas

This is already Christmas

Today is already the 25th of December and it’s Christmas. A religious festival based on a payan festival still very popular in our country.

 

 

The origin of Christmas is not clearly established. But it is known that Christmas was born in ancient times, on the sidelines of the winter solstice. A pivotal period, during which were held, since antiquity, many celebrations dedicated to the worship of the god of sowing and fertility, Saturn. The “Saturnalia”, which took place from December 17 to 24, seems to have an undeniable link with the “Nativity”, which was born with Christianity. There is no certainty as to the exact day of Jesus’ birth. The date of December 25th was only decided in 354, by Pope Liberus…

In short, everyone understands that Christmas is a festival that celebrates the birth of Jesus.

We cannot understand the work of Jesus without a new birth (read John 3: 3) and a renewal of the intelligence. It is impossible to understand with a human intelligence. Jesus means savior. The deep concept is salvation. It means that there is a perdition. One cannot understand the basis of the Christian faith if one does not understand this concept of perdition or death. Death being the separation from God.

We are of course far from God. We don’t believe that God exists. And if he exists (maybe), it doesn’t change anything. We pray but it doesn’t work. Why not? Simply because there is a wall between us and God. So we invented religions thinking that maybe we can reach God. But it doesn’t work. The religion of the Bible (Judaism) is based on the law. If you do something against the law, there are consequences. It’s too difficult to apply. And we can’t do it. Other religions like Christianity, Islam or Buddhism etc… are not very useful. We are still far from God. We get closer to one meter while he is billions of billions of kilometers away.

In short, we cannot reach God, speak to him, hear him. We cannot enter into a relationship with him. This is perdition.

The only solution is Jesus. He paid for us to be able to find a relationship with God. If we want to. He leaves us free. God does not force us. Jesus is the only way to God. It is the only way to salvation. Jesus means Savior.

Obviously, human beings do not understand these concepts. We need a revelation. If in spite of everything you are curious. Look for yourself. Read the Bible. Jesus is the beginning and the end. The alpha and the omega. In the last verse of the bible you find the word Jesus. And what do you find in the first verse of the new testament? the name of Jesus. What do you find in the 1st verse of the Bible? The word ‘beginning’. Jesus is the beginning.

In short, Christmas is the birth of Jesus, the greatest of all Jews.

Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus. It is the celebration of the beginning of Jesus as a man. Jesus is the beginning. I have deliberately replaced the word birth with beginning. Jesus was before. He IS. He is the I AM.

Whether you are a believer or not. Merry Christmas and happy holidays.

Why I don’t like christmas period

Why I don’t like christmas period

Christmas is a hard period of the year for me. Why ? We should be joyfull, give gifts, offer gifts and be with people we love.

I just noticed that year after year I didn’t like december

Christmas season is too commercial

Every where we can see chrismas decoration. Shops are full and we MUST buy.  As I don’t like shopping, usualy I procastine my shopping list to january. And in January is sales.  Why buying in december ?

Christmas season is a stressing season

You should go on Christmas super with colleagues, with charity or church. December is a busy day

Christmas emphasis loneliness

When you have no family or when your family is far  away or when you have a family but with bad relationship. You can feel lonely. Christmas is a family celebration. You remember that you are alone.

Christmas is not a biblical idea

In the Bible anniversary was not celebrated. Why celebrate anniversary of the birth of Jesus ? And we don’t know the exact day of the birth of Jesus. Is is really on december ?  No for sure!!! Christmas is not a biblical feast.

December a stressing month

December is a stressing month

December is a stressing month

Didn’t you remark that december is a month full of activities. When Chrismas is approaching, that remember that we MUST celebrate Chrismas. Society tells us that we must buy gifts and more. We must decorate and make christmas tree. December is a busy month too in many companies. For shops that is THE month of the year. Yes December is a month of consumption

Then this social pressure of Christmas could become stressing

Poverty

Some people have financial difficulties or have not enough monney. We can call them poor people. They are frustrated because they cannot buy what they want.

Ecology

If you have ecology fiber, you cannnot buy and consum but you want to protect environment. You just want to buy only what you need and not more.  If you have a device, you don’t need to replace it with the new one if it still works well. We must save energy and life only with the minimum.

Lonelyness

If you are lonely or if you have crisis in your family, Christmas could be a hard time because we MUST be with our family and we MUST be happy. This month remind us our lonelyness.

 

If you are poor, ecologist or lonely, december month is a hard month.

Maybe christians could feel better in this special season. Maybe not because Christmas is not a biblical celebration.  And today Jesus is not at the center of Christmas as it could be.Jesus born is only a story a myth.

So what can we do during this period ? Maybe walking in the snow far away from shopping center and put our stress away.

Even if you don’t like Christmas : Merry Christmas
