The Truth About Christmas

OFG The Truth About Christmas

Thus saith יְהוִֹה, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good. Jeremiah 10:2-5 (AV)

In this post we are going to expose the true pagan origins of Christmas and provide the reader with biblical revelation concerning the true spirit of the festive season. We will also trace historical information relating to the origins and traditions surrounding the observance, answering the question – is Christmas really Christian?

Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before יְהוָֹה thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before יְהוָֹה empty: Deuteronomy 16:16 (AV)

In this post we are going to explore the third of three annual high sabbaths of Israel stipulated in the Old Testament–namely the Feast of Tabernacles or ‘Sukkot’ סֻכָּה ‘suka’ in Hebrew meaning ‘a hut, lair, thicket, covert and booth’ – also referred to alternatively as the Feast of Ingathering. As we move forward, we will see the explicit Christological and prophetic significance in these feasts and their impacting power regarding eschatological revelation.

Shavuot – The Feast Of Weeks

Shavuot

Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before יְהוָֹה thy אֱלֹהִים in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before יְהוָֹה empty: Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of יְהוָֹה thy אֱלֹהִים which he hath given thee. Deuteronomy 16:16-17 (AV)

In this post we are going to explore the biblical Feast of Weeks, called Shavuot in Hebrew and commonly known as the Feast of Pentecost in Christianity. This biblical feast has high doctrinal and prophetic significance in terms of living a powerful Christian life and possessing a dynamic Christian spirituality.

What Is The Mark Of The Beast?

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. Revelation 13:18 (AV)

In this post we are going to explore the biblical definition of the mark of the beast and reveal what it actually is among all the speculation out there. It is vitally important today that Christians are made aware of just what the mark of the beast is, its implications upon society and the church and how much time we have before its arrival as we move forward in these escalating end times.

Passover & Unleavened Bread

OFG Passover

And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt. Exodus 12:13 (AV)

In this post we are going to briefly explore the biblical Sabbath Feasts of Passover and Unleavened Bread in the context of the sacrifice and resurrection of Jesus Christ. At this time of the year the majority of the mainstream Christian world celebrates the Easter season and surrounding seasons such as Lent, but we at OFG believe Passover and Unleavened Bread are the true biblically commanded and Christ centered festivals.

The Death of Cessationism

For I am יְהוָֹה, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. Malachi 3:6 (AV)

In this post we are going to briefly explore the topic and doctrine of cessationism in the context of its damaging but decreasing influence upon the modern church, Christian spirituality and the Bible itself. The damaging influence of this doctrine is apparent in many ways and it being unfounded in the scripture itself, but rather, based upon shonky exegesis and theological bias should raise several alarms.
