Two weeks ago, my family and I were sitting in the Sunday service, in the rear of the sanctuary, as we got there late! It was the Sunday before Christmas. The pastor had brought a good sermon, with the emphasis upon the Messiah-child, as it should be. At the end of the sermon during the invitation, we were all standing in the sanctuary, and my wife and I were worshipping as the invitation song was being played.
I noticed my wife also started crying during worship at about the same time. I thought (in my typical man-centeredness) that it was because she was touched that I looked so upset. Turns out, the LORD had given her a vision. We had been studying on and learning all about the pagan origins of Christ-mass. In the back of the church sanctuary, we could view all the Christ-mass ornamentations.
The vision the Lord gave my wife was of pagans worshipping and offering sacrifice on an altar, then, after the pagans finished, the Christians came up up and offered on the same altar! And this is what the LORD said it was like to Him! Christians, who follow (or claim to) Messiah, joining themselves to pagan altars, giving worship to Satan and Nimrod in the holy place. God is greatly grieved! 'Come out of her and be seperate!' Says the Lord! Be holy, as I am holy!
Not one person went forward at the end of the service in the Christmas-filled congregation!
