Why are you afraid of Christmas?

Why are you afraid of Christmas?
Tom Lessing’s audio rebuttal to Stephan Joubert’s teaching on Christmas.

Transcription of above audio: In one of the most recent articles on his E-church webpage (dated 17th December 2020), Stephan Joubert recounts a conversation he had with a woman who maintained, and rightly so, that Christmas was a pagan festival.

He admitted that the original festival was indeed a pagan one in honor of the Roman sun god, but protested that Christians through the ages have Christianized it and that we ought to celebrate it in honor of Jesus of Nazareth.

What he meant of course is that Christians are quite adept at miraculously changing dragons into lambs.

Nevertheless, it is not entirely true that Christians Christianized the original pagan festival in the time of Constantinople the Great, one of the first types of Antichrist, in the Roman Catholic church’s history.

When he decreed the end of Christian persecution in Rome under his predecessors, many pagans joined the “Christian Church” and brought with them their ungodly practices because it was profitable to act and look like Christians.

These were the ones, as Paul wrote, who had a form of godliness, but denied the power thereof: and advised the true Christians to avoid such people and to keep far away from them.” (2 Timothy 3:5).


As a matter of interest, this is happening to this very day. Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, Atheists, and even Satanists celebrate Christmas because it is a very lucrative enterprise.

Despite the woman’s staunch refusal to demythologize the pagan origin of Christmas and to Christianize it into a Christian festival, Joubert tried to convince her that “Our testimony is that we are not against everything and condemning everyone, who do not think like us, but that we serve Jesus by also celebrating Christmas in the correct way for His glory in these days.”

Listen carefully, brothers and sisters in Christ. This is precisely what Aaron said when the Israelites convinced him to make a golden calf while they were waiting for Moses to return from Mount Horeb where God had given him his Ten Commandments.

“And when Aaron saw it (that is the detestable golden calf), he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, Tomorrow is a feast to the LORD. (Exodus 32:5).

Aaron may as well have said: “Our testimony is that God has delivered us from our horrific slavery in Egypt, but that does not mean that we should shun everything and condemn everyone in the Egyptian culture.

They worship a sacred bull called Hapi-Ankh, the son of Ha-Thor, a primary deity in the pantheon of ancient Egypt, who was sacrificed for the people. But don’t let that make you afraid of their festival.

We will adopt it and replace Ha-Thor with YAHWEH and Hapi-Ankh with the Son of YAHWEH, called ADONAI, and use our imagination that we are actually worshiping the true God. Indeed, tomorrow is a feast to the Lord.”

Aaron was probably the very first ecumenist to walk the earth who blended at least two radically opposed religions into one. His sin resulted in the slaughtering of 3000 Israelites.

Ecumenism has become a holy cow in our day and age for the sake of peace, harmony, tolerance, compassion, and love between all those who think differently, with a resolve to build a new world order where every one of whatever religious persuasion, including atheists and Satanists, may join in a hêppie, hêppie, hêppie Christmas festival, for tomorrow is a feast to the Lord.

No wonder Stephan Joubert haughtily and with self-esteemed wisdom said that there is truth in Buddhism, Judaism, and even Atheism. If the truth is not fully proved 100 % true and slightly deviates from the truth with as little as 0,001%, it is no longer the truth.

Then, it is truth mixed with a lie which is precisely how Satan works as an angel of light and how he energizes his ministers to work as false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. (2 Corinthians 11 verses 13-14).

Stephan Joubert was born on 24th October. Imagine someone phoning him on 25th December to wish him a happy birthday. What do you think he might say? He will probably say something like, thank you, old pal, but it is not my birthday today.

It is genuinely nice of you to phone me and shower me with your best wishes and blessings, but unfortunately, you are a little late.” Joubert could, of course, be courteous and kind and reluctant to offend the caller and rather say something like this: “How sweet of you. How did you know it is my birthday? I really appreciate your call and best wishes.”

If someone who is a sinner like me, prefers to be honest and sincere in telling the truth instead of holding up a farce by changing his date of birth from 24th October to 25th of December just to be kind, courteous, and non-offensive, how much more would the Son of God, the essence of Truth, rather tell the truth instead of holding up a lie and a farce?

Well, of course, we do not know when Jesus was born. The Bible does not provide an exact day and date. Ah, so what, we already have a feast day in honor of the Babylonian and Roman sun god on the 25th of December.

Let us surreptitiously place Jesus next to the Babylonian sun god, Shamash, the son of Sin, whose name is rather interesting, is it not? who later became Sol and Aphrodite in Rome, and so Christianize the pagan holiday as a feast to the Lord, just like Aaron did centuries ago.

Does Stephan Joubert really think that Jesus would be satisfied with something so abominable, the very thing Paul warned against in Second Corinthians?

"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye is the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty." (2 Corinthians 6:14-18)

How do we know that Christmas is still a pagan holiday to this very moment in the history of mankind’s rebellion against God, despite Stephan Joubert’s assertion that we have Christianized it and miraculously changed it from a dragon to a lamb? Well, this is what Jesus, the One of the Bible, said: “If the world hates you [and it does], know that it has hated Me before it hated you.”

No, no. no, Jesus, you are deliriously wrong. The world loves you so much that people of all religious persuasions, and even atheists and Satanists, just love to celebrate your birthday on 25th December together with every conceivable Christian denomination. Wrong!

Totally WRONG! The Jesus whose birthday the world celebrates on 25th December is not, I repeat, is NOT, Jesus of the Bible but another Jesus. He is an ecumenical Jesus preparing the way for the New World Order and its Antichrist.

Know this: If you are popular with the world and the world loves you, you are either not saved or there is something drastically wrong in your relationship with Christ Jesus. Beware of Stephan Joubert. He is one of the end-time false prophets whom the Bible warns us to avoid and run from.

Am I advising you to stay away from family gatherings on Christmas day? Am I a real sour-pussy-cat with whiskers standing on end and ominously sharp nails protruding, ready to rip your faces apart?

No! By all means, enjoy the day with your loved ones, eating sumptuous Christmas dinners, and Christmas puddings decked with cream and cherries, and please, do not forget to exchange those beautiful Christmas gifts you bought at your local store.

However, also remind your family and guests that Christmas never was and will never be a Christian festival because the world hates Jesus Christ, the same way it hates you, provided, of course, that you are a real born-again Christian.

Also, remind your family and friends a time is coming when they will kill you because you say you love Jesus, and in an ecstatic burst of joy send gifts one to another, like in the Day of Christmas, because they have at last rid Mother Earth of the scum who poisoned her and its inhabitants with the love of God, daring to proclaim the Truth,

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (John 3:16-18).

May God  bless you and your family.

    Hi Tom,
    Thank you for your article on Christmas. I agree with you about Christmas…
    Last week, I was surfing the internet looking for information on whether Dr Charles Stanley is a Freemason. I came across a website called, A True Church by Darwin Fish. After I read his article on Charles Stanley, I started looking at his other articles. I have never heard of Darwin Fish and do not know anything about him, but he also has an article on Christmas, http://www.atruechurch.info/christmas.html
    Anyways, I thought I would share his very in-depth Christmas article with you and other readers. Let me know what you think about it.

  2. Thank you Lisa. I shall definitely have a look-see. Thanks for the link.

  3. Hi Lisa :hi:

    Darwin Fish is unfortunately a very unstable false teacher. He does a lot of exposing, however I’m not sure his information is correct most of the time, and if it is, his doctrine needs to be scrutinized big time. So just be careful.
