Christmas Stockings and Gift Giving

Cynical (Bah Humbug!) or not, a very real "reason for the season" is the redistribution of vast fortunes from the pockets of the working poor into hands of the Elite and corporate despots. Corporate Santa and the financial hedonism of Christmas was intentionally designed to facilitate this fleecing of the poor.

So we ask:

Is there any biblical basis for this annual greed-a-thon? Absolutely not!

During Saturnalia gifts were compulsively and compulsorily exchanged in honor of the coming Light of Mithras Sol Invictus (the god of Emperor Constantine), so too now presents are exchanged to acknowledge the coming of the "Son of God" -- whose birth has nothing to do with the Winter Solstice. Does this guilt ridden gifting frenzy have a biblical basis? No.

In the Gospel account only the Magi from the East gave gifts. And that was only to the child Y'shua and his parents in homage of his potential as King of Jews, as the story has it. There is no evidence of anyone else exchanging gifts.

The Christianized version of the Saturnalia rites pass through Old Nick and his corporate handlers, not with the God of the Bible. So why observe them?

In 1087 CE a group of Nicolaitans who regarded Bishop Nicholas as a most holy saint (and who secretly worshiped and served him as Old Nick incarnate according to existing reports) moved his bones from Turkey back to the sanctuary of goddess Pasqua Epiphania in Bari, Italy. There his remains are venerated and worshiped to this day. In normal Nicolaitan style, his followers incorporated the cult of the Italian wish-fulfilling Pagan goddess (known as "Grandmother" Pasqua Epiphania) into their heretical rites.

Mrs. Claus -- Er Ms. Claus, sorry

Even as Nicholas was said to place coins in the shoes of the poor, goddess Pasqua Epiphania filled the stockings of local children with her gifts. As the worshippers of Nicholas merged with the worshippers of Pasqua Epiphania, Grandmother's rites was merged with the Nicholas traditions and she effectively became the consort of Kris Kringle: Mrs. Santa Claus -- Don't ask why a Catholic Arch Bishop has a wife in his cult!... Her shrine at Bari became the center of the Nicholas cult. She continues to be worshipped there as well.

It was at this point that the tradition of exchanging gifts on the anniversary of Nicholas' death (December 6) began! His worshippers vowed to keep his acts of kindness going by taking it upon themselves. This gift giving later became the 12 days of Christmas with the giving of gifts on Christmas morning as the culmination of the festivities.

December 6th: This tradition was later added to the twelve days of Christmas and the December 25th observances although the rites continue in some parts of Europa on the 5th or 6th of December to this day.

Wodan, Old Nick and the Pickling Tub

In more ancient times when the Roman Empire would conquer a people the local gods would be formally accepted into the Roman Pantheon and merged with an existing family of gods. Likewise as the Universal Church extended its authority and power across Europa many of the Germanic and Celtic Pagans (i.e. nature worshippers) and Heathens (i.e. rural folk of diverse beliefs, often including the worship/supplication of nature spirits) blended their gods and goddesses, traditions and rites with the new Triune Nicene/Nicolaitan God, harmonized by Nicholas through the Pickling Tub.

Wodan (also known as Wodan Wodel and Odin) is the chief god and father of the trinity: Thor, Balder, and Tue. His worship was merged with the Nicholas cult. It is worth noting in passing that Wednesday is Wodans' day, Thursday is Thor's day and Tuesday is Tue's day. Sunday of course is the day of Sol Invictus, Monday belongs to the Moon god and Friday is ruled by Goddess Fria.

Not only was the biblically mandated Shabbat stolen from the followers of Y'shua's reformed Jewish movement and replaced with Sol's day, Shabbat was formally placed into the hands of Saturn! Rome was severing all ties with Torah! For more on the Jewish Shabbat read my Sabbath series Here. For an emphasis on how Shabbat was lost to the Christian religion read my study here.

This merger of Wodan with Saint Nick established his rank within the Merovingian hierarchy of gods. Now Wodan Wodel wielded all the authority of Old Nick, consort of Pasqua Epiphania! Both Woden and Nick were elevated by the merger. In the eyes of their followers and the secret Catholic order cabals that maintained allegiance to the Nicolaitan Heresy this placed Wodan above even the public face of the Triune Nicene god! Now by their estimation Saint Nick became a "Grandfather God" ranking along side "Grandmother Goddess." Together the two covertly ruled all legally recognized religion in the Empire. It was during this time Grandmother began her elevation towards becoming, as she now is regarded, Co-Redemptrix This is why Catholic doctrine states that in order to reach God must go through Jesus. In order to reach Jesus one must go through Mary, the Mother of God or Theotokos.

In order to facilitate this merger of religious authority and to more fully blend with Wodanwic, Nicholas of Myra now grew his hair long, sprouted a long white beard and often horns that demonstrated his authority and primal relationship with nature. This attracted the Pagans and Heathens. He donned appropriate winter apparel (animal skins, not yet red in color) and mounted a great horse. Now as Grandfather (Elder) God Old Nick rode his war charger through the heavens as Sol Invictus (this is where the Christian halo comes from by the way). As Rome absorbed the new symbolism of Sol Invictus Old Nick took on a more northern appearance. His war horse became a single reindeer. Later a sled was added with 8 reign deer. Later still Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer came onto the scene as I will discuss below). The creation of the modern Santa Claus took time.

In order to more closely align and unite itself with the Winter Solstice traditions, the Nicolaitan Church next updated the Nicholas traditions to reflect his new powers and omniscience. Now Santa knew if you'd been bad or good and would judge you accordingly! Being careful not to alienate the common people by making Santa appear to be a rival to the triune god they had so carefully crafted, they elevated his importance but limited his worship to a single month, December. The newly empowered Saint Nick would now distribute his gifts and pass his judgements (with the help of Krampus and the others) on the children of the planet. For eleven months Old Nick would silently watch. For 12 days in December one was given the opportunity to make amends and then on Yule his judgement would be declared. A mockery of the Jewish High Holy Days!

When the song says: "You better be good!" it meant it literally! Otherwise Krampus would come and get you! Serve god Nick and receive goodies, oppose him and you will pay the consequences!

It is known that the Nicolaitans of Bari gradually merged into the greater Catholic hierarchy and were absorbed by it, although rumors persist that the cult still exists in its own rite. We know Nick and Pasqua Epiphania continue to be worship in certain Catholic circles. For a time the two communions were rivals and it appeared that Nick and Pasqua Epiphania might become of overt Mother and Father God of the Catholic Church. This was in part the cause of the perversions during the tyranny of the Holy Inquisition (now called the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith). But as the Bari sect was absorbed the present Catholic systems became established and the Church gradually mellowed. To day Catholicism is the world's second largest religion. Islam has not passed it. Whereas Catholicism is rapidly declining due its innumerable scandals and abuses, Islam is the world's fastest growing and most devoutly observed religion. Santa Claus has never been more popular!

In 1809 Washington Irving (author of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle) wrote Knickerbocker History in which he satirized Nicholas as the Dutch Santa Claus (or Sinterklaas).

"Twas the Night before Christmas"

Dr. Clement Moore, a professor at Union Seminary, read Knickerbocker History and in 1822 he penned the famous poem:

Twas the Night before Christmas"
A Visit from St. Nicholas

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.
And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tinny reindeer.

With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be Saint Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!

"Now Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! On, Cupid! on, on Donner and Blitzen!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!"

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky.
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of Toys, and Saint Nicholas too.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Down the chimney Saint Nicholas came with a bound.

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot.
A bundle of Toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler, just opening his pack.

His eyes-how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly!

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself!
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk.
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose!

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight,
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!"

Does this sound biblical to anyone?

It was Clement Clarke Moore who added the eight tiny reindeer and Santa entering people's homes through sooty chimneys by night as far as I have found. Before this people left their shoes etc. outside on the stoop hoping Nick would come by. Again, the idea of the god man Nicholas slipping in through fire hot chimneys unharmed fits his basic mythos as Sinterklaas.

Moore has been described as a dour, straitlaced academician and professor of the classics at the General Theological Seminary in New York City. He authored among other works a two-volume tome entitled A Compendious Lexicon of the Hebrew Language. He was clearly well acquainted with the Sinterklaas accounts and symbolisms but probably believed little about the occulted tales of the god-man Nicholas-Woden cum Sinterklaas. As the saying goes, "the greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he does not exist." Nonetheless the legends and mysteries of Sinterklaas and his associates live on.

So I must ask...

If Christmas is about the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, where is he in all these clearly Pagan traditions and practices?

If Christmas is not about the birth of Y'shua, why do faithful Christians teach their children to anxiously await the arrival of a Pagan soot smeared god-fairy and his clearly demonic helpers?

Why do Christians instruct their children to leave sacrificial offerings of milk and cookies to this Nicolaitan god? Are they aware that the Bible forbids making liquid and grain offering to other gods?

Why do 'Bible believing people' who are taught that the love of material possessions is the root of all evil (I Timothy 6:10) honor a Pagan god of greed and hedonism and encourage their innocent vulnerable children to take part in his rites?

Why do they display his image in their homes?

Why do they sing songs of praise to and about him?

Why do they bring forbidden items like idolatrous Woden/Astara trees into their homes and decorate them in direct defiance of Scripture?

Why do they insist on celebrating such clearly anti-biblical traditions and yet claim to honor the Bible and its God?

Why do Christian parents place their young ones on the lap of an incubus (or one dressed in his guise) and instruct them to ask for material objects that they will in all likelihood never receive? Don't they understand that this causes confusion for their children and destroys their faith in the True God who does answer prayers?

I'm just asking, not judging you ... but I don't get it.

Bavarian illustrator Thomas Nast

The appearance of Old Nick varied greatly over the years. Sometimes he was shown as a stern Bishop (as Nicholas of Myra), sometimes as a busy elderly elf, sometimes as a fearsome incubus, and sometimes as a fur clad mountain man but his true form was never shown to the public.

The Bavarian Merovingians had great plans for Old Nick (or more accurately he had great plans for them!) and so once they had his myth firmly established with Moore's Night Before Christmas (originally under a more sinister title: A Visit from St. Nicholas) they formalized Old Nick's public image through the art work of Bavarian illustrator Thomas Nast.

By presenting the Pagan winter festival as the birthday of their god-man the Nicolaitans succeeded in leading the Christian world yet farther away from the Torah and more fully into the worship of Dagon-Woden-Nicholas and the ancient gods of Babylon.

But... Kris Kringle Isn't Real So Why Does Any Of This Matter!

Santa -- Satan

Just an observation.

Behind it all with demonic glee Old Nick is surely laughing!

Another key Nicolaitan coup seldom considered by Christians is that once their children realize that Santa is "only a myth" despite the solemn assurances of their duped parents when they are most impressionable, as they mature many reasonably begin to assume that God -- the other "imaginary friend who watches over us and keeps a list of whose been naughty and nice" is also only a myth. Some guy in the mall wearing funny cloths speaks for Santa, some guy in the church (sometimes wearing funny cloths) speaks for God.

What's the difference?

Listen: "My dear friends, never forget, when you hear the progress of enlightenment vaunted, that the devil's best trick is to persuade you that he doesn't exist!" -- Charles Pierre Baudelaire.

The famed Bavarian illustrator Thomas Nast finalized the popular version of Santa Claus known today. He also helped hide the Bavarian Mystery Cult element by moving Santa and his workshop from the mountains of Bavaria to the less specific "North Pole." Nast's Northern Kingdom has Santa's workshop filled with busy elves, reminiscent of the nature spirits honored by the Heathens and fairies honored by the Pagans) who study Santa's lists of good and bad children and dole out his rewards and punishments, in contradiction of the biblical truth all judgement comes from HaShem alone.

The Beatles once got into trouble when John Lennon correctly stated that their band was more popular with America's youth than Jesus. That was true. Americans have largely abandoned religious truth. Christian parents facilitate this sad state of affairs by lying to their children and teaching them Paganism rather than biblical truth. Ask your children, in a way that allows them to be honest in their response, who they love more Jesus or Santa and be prepared for a shock!

Coca-Cola Red

After Nast, all that remained to complete the contemporary picture was Santa's red outfit.

In 1931 the globalist Coca Cola Corporation contracted the Swedish commercial artist Haddon Sundblom to create a coke-drinking Santa (he also created Aunt Jemima and the Quaker Oats Man by the way).

Not surprisingly Kent, Muhtar (President and CEO of the Coca-Cola Company) and George A. David (chairman of Coca-Cola's Hellenic Bottling Co.) are also members of the Merovingian led Bilderberg Group of the Global Elite. George A. David is also a member of the notorious Club of Rome. The Hellenic Coca Cola Bottling Co. is one of Europe's major soft drink companies. While we can not say for certain, as I discuss Here, there is strong biblical evidence that Rex Mundi (the Antichrist) will arise from the Greek Isles (he must certainly arise in Western Europe). This globalist corporation insisted that Santa's fur-trimmed suit be presented in bright Coca Cola red.

No doubt it seems I'm stretching the point to the breaking point now. Perhaps. But consider the known ties binding the Coca cola mega corporation with the Merovingian hierarchy via their membership in Club Bilderberg and the Club of Rome. It is reasonable to question whether this might not suggest something darker -- a link between the color of Santa's outfit to, for instance, an association with the the "Red Shield" (or "Rothschild" family of the Bavarian Illuminati). Just point it out...

Globalist ties run deep.

Rudolph Joins the team

Rudolph, that "most famous reindeer of all," hitched his yoke to Old Nick's reindeer team about a hundred years after the original herd of eight flying deer was selected. Rudolph was created by Robert L. May, a copywriter at the now defunct Montgomery Ward department store in 1939 to bring in more customers. Mr. May created the myth that is now standard Christmas fare.

How Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Got His Job

Here's the Complete 1964 Show:

Thus with the aid of a Bavarian artist and a leading Bilderberg member corporation (including the symbolic Red Shield of House Rothschild) Santa Claus became the Real Reason for the Season supplanting Jesus and further alienating the people of this religion from the God of Israel and His eternal Truth.
