CHRISTMAS AND “BABYLON THE GREAT”

DECEMBER 25 NIMROD

CHRISTMAS 
AND  “BABYLON  THE  GREAT”

What is the Connection ?

The Bible identifies False Religion as a woman
called “Babylon The Great”. Her religious doctrines,
teachings, beliefs and Holidays are based upon
the Center from which all False Religion began,
“Ancient Babylon”.  It was under the influence of
NIMROD – who declared himself to be god – that
all these false teachings began.  For he was a
mighty hunter in opposition to Jehovah God, our
Creator.

“…Nim´rod….He displayed himself 
a mighty hunter in opposition to Jehovah….”
(Genesis 10:8,9)(NWT)

“…Nimrod….He was a mighty hunter 
before Jehovah…”
(Genesis 10:8,9)(ASV)-BibleGateway

“Now it was Nimrod who excited them 
to such an affront and contempt of God.”
-Josephus (c. 37 – c. 100 AD/CE), 

“His name is Nimrod, It means ‘the rebel,’
and is evidently meant to designate the nature 
of the man. He was the first specimen of giant 
tyranny after the flood. His Defiance of Jehovah
was perpetrated in wickedness and ambition under 
the very eye of Jehovah. Nimrod’s assumptions were
religious as well as political. Nimrod presented
himself not only for obedience but also for worship.
His awful greatness was of ambitious rebellion,  
apostasy and defiance of Jehovah. And as it was Babel 
that was the beginning of his empire, so is ‘Babylon the great’
its consummation and close.”
-Nimrod
by Horatius Bonar
1808-1889

“As the people increased in number, 
the Way of Jehovah was corrupted 
and a principal figure in those days was Nimrod, 
the grandson of Ham described as a mighty hunter 
before Jehovah. The word ‘before’ used in this 
sense means, ‘totally antagonistic to Jehovah.’
We celebrate Christmas on a date which coincides 
with the birthday of Nimrod – the villainous king 
of ancient Babylon.”

‘NARROW IS THE WAY’
By Harry Lancaster

Amont those false teachings that are part of 
“Babylon The Great” – are the “trinity” doctrine,
Hellfire torment, Easter, and Christmas.

This article is focusing upon the Christmas Holiday
and it’s Nimrod-connection.  Indeed, even scholars
recognize that Christmas came from Ancient Babylon,
and has no connection with the Birth of Christ who
was born during a much warmer season.

Scholars Identify “Babylon The Great”
with CHRISTMAS

“Nimrod started the great organized worldly apostasy 
from God that has dominated this world until now. 
Nimrod married his own mother, whose name was Semiramis. 
After Nimrod’s death, his so-called mother-wife, 
Semiramis, propagated the evil doctrine of the survival 
of Nimrod as a spirit being. She claimed a full-grown 
evergreen tree sprang overnight from a dead tree stump, 
which symbolized the springing forth unto new life 
of the dead Nimrod. On each anniversary of his birth, 
she claimed, Nimrod would visit the evergreen tree 
and leave gifts upon it. December 25th, was the birthday 
of Nimrod. This is the real origin of the Christmas tree.”
-The Plain Truth About Christmas
by David J. Stewart | December 24th, 2005

“The real origin of Christmas goes back to ancient 
Babylon. It is bound up in the organized apostasy 
with which Satan has gripped a deceived world these 
many centuries! In Egypt, it was always believed that 
the son of Iris (Egyptian name for “Queen of Heaven”) 
was born December 25th. Semiramis also bore the title
“Queen of Heaven” – and she was Nimrod’s mother.
Paganism celebrated this famous birthday over most 
of the known world for centuries before the birth 
of Christ.”
-The Plain Truth About Christmas
by David J. Stewart | December 24th, 2005

“Christmas as a pagan holiday traces back 
thousands of years before to a man named Nimrod, 
founder of ancient pagan Babylon.”

“Babylon’s false worship is found today 
in every nation and in some aspect in nearly 
all religions, including present day christianity.”

“Egyptian and Babylonian antiquities 
identify Nimrod’s mother as Semiramis, 
and his birthday was celebrated on 25th December.”
-The True Meaning of Christmas
by Mike Gascoigne; 1996

“Thus began the worship of Semiramis 
and the child-god, and the whole paraphanalia 
of the Babylonian religious system.”
-The True Meaning of Christmas
by Mike Gascoigne; 1996

“The Roman Pagans used to celebrate the birthday 
of their child-god on 25th December, and the Roman 
Catholic Church sought to win over as many people 
as possible to nominal Catholicism by proclaiming 
the same day to be the birthday of Jesus. So the 
Pagans had no difficulty worshipping the Catholic 
Madonna and child. They were seen as yet another 
manifestation of the Babylonian Queen of Heaven 
(Semiramis)and her son (Nimrod). The Pagans made 
no compromises, they didn’t need to, they just 
continued their Pagan worship within the church.”
-The True Meaning of Christmas
by Mike Gascoigne; 1996

“While it’s easy to knock the Catholic Church 
because of their Maryolatry, the Protestants cannot 
be left off the hook. The Protestant Reformation 
dispensed with only a part of the Babylonian system 
of worship. The celebration of Christmas, inherited 
from the Roman Catholic Church, via Pagan Rome, 
via Egypt, via Babylon, is still practiced as the 
most important event in the Protestant Christian 
calendar, so from that point of view the Protestants 
are as much into Paganism as the Catholics.” 
-The True Meaning of Christmas
by Mike Gascoigne; 1996

“The Christmas tree is specifically a Babylonian symbol. 
On Christmas Eve the Yule Log is thrown onto the fire.
On Christmas Day there is the tree, covered in 
decorations and surrounded with presents, 
representing the resurrected Nimrod of Babylon.”
-The True Meaning of Christmas
by Mike Gascoigne; 1996

“FOR MANY years Christmas and other major holidays, 
such as Easter, Halloween, etc., have been portrayed 
as having a Christian origin, yet they all have their
common origins in Ancient Babylon.”

Who Was Really Born On December 25?

“December 25 was highly honored and recognized 
by Nimrod’s supporters…Many centuries later 
this pagan custom was “Christianized” as being 
the birthday of Christ.”

“Today, the celebrated holiday known as Christmas, 
will actually find its roots in ancient Babylon.
Christmas is a pagan holiday, which was first formed 
by Semiramis, the mother-wife of Nimrod. This became 
a holiday after Semiramis indoctrinated it into the 
Babylonish government upon the death of Nimrod.”

“Nimrod’s birth date was December 25th.  
This never was the birth date of Jesus, 
son of Joseph by Mary; nor does any Holy Book 
support this idea.”

“The Christmas tree custom is also a pagan 
tradition stemming from Nimrod’s mother 
in her attempt to immortalize her son.”

“December 25th was celebrated as Baal or
Nimrod’s birthday. By tradition, this birthday 
celebration became an integral part of every human 
culture, based on this pagan idolatry. 
Generally, all mankind is fast asleep, 
dreaming this old Babylonian dream. 
Christmas was an attempt by Catholicism 
to revise and adopt this paganism.”
-The Story Of Nimrod, 
As It Relates To Christmas And Easter
by Wilhelm J Wolfaardt

“Scripture itself demands that we observe 
the Messiah’s death, and not His birth. 
But, since the pagan mind was so oriented 
around fertility and birth,  it developed 
the way we see it today, blending the most 
important features of pagan interpretation. 
“Babel, the Great Mother of Harlots and of 
the Abominations of the Earth” — has intoxicated
the masses.”
-The Story Of Nimrod, 
As It Relates To Christmas And Easter
by Wilhelm J Wolfaardt

“Christmas as a pagan holiday traces back 
thousands of years to a man named Nimrod, 
founder of ancient pagan Babylon. Nimrod began 
a counterfeit religion in the Book of Genesis.
The Bible refers to it as the religion of 
Mystery Babylon — the mother of false religion 
that will be destroyed when the Savior Jesus
comes to set up His throne on earth, Revelation 18. 
Babylon’s false worship is found today in some 
aspect in nearly all religions, including  
christendom.”
– Nimrod: The Grandfather of Paganism 
Yahweh’s Restoration Ministries

“Jesus Christ was NOT born on December 25. 
But December 25th can be traced back to Genesis 
and a man named Nimrod. Nimrod was the founder 
of a great false religious system that began in
ancient Babylon that has always opposed the truths 
of God. It’s time we face facts! This world is 
deceived, just as God prophesied it would be 
(Rev. 12:9). Satan is the power behind this deception. 
Satan has successfully pawned off the old customs 
of the Babylonian mystery religion as being pleasing 
to Jesus Christ.”

“The book of Revelation is an end-time book. 
In chapter 17 we are told that Jesus Christ 
will one day pass judgment upon a “great whore” 
bearing the title mystery, babylon the great, 
the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth 
(v. 5). This is the great false Babylonian religious 
system that Nimrod founded and its many false religious 
variations or denominations throughout the world!”

“Can there be any doubt what Jesus Christ thinks 
of this church? Every inhabitant of Earth has been 
made to suffer to one degree or another by the 
deceptions created by its “abominations.” 
Revelation 18:4 carries this plea: “And I heard 
another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her,
my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, 
and that ye receive not of her plagues.” 
Right now, God is sending out that same warning message 
to all who will listen: Come out of all these pagan 
practices disguised as Christianity. Don’t partake any
longer of those sins. The celebration of Christmas and 
its customs is just one of those sins. It seems harmless,
but those who stay in such deception will eventually 
have to face the wrath of Jesus Christ.”

“It is no wonder that Jesus said, 
“Enter ye in at the strait gate: 
for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, 
that leadeth to destruction, and many there be 
which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, 
and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, 
and few there be that find it.“ Popular opinion 
should not prevent individuals who know the truth 
from turning away from a festival season steeped 
in paganism. Jesus said that, in order to be His 
disciples, there would be times when we would need 
to forsake the desires of our family and friends 
and follow Him (Luke 14:26-27).

“God does give us a command to memorialize 
Jesus Christ: He commands us to observe the day 
of Christ’s death (i Cor. 11:24-27)—NOT His birth.
You now have a choice: You can continue keeping 
Christmas year after year, accepting the influence 
of your family, friends, neighbors and Nimrod, 
or you can accept the commands of the Eternal God 
by learning more about HIM.”

“Lent, Easter and Christmas are of 
Babylonian origin.”
-EASTER AND CHRISTMAS PAGANISM
2000 B.C. TO DATE
by Edward Stevens (1895-1966)

“Christmas” festivities are not just “pre-Christian”—
dating to pagan worship of the sun god—but they in fact 
have NO connection to the date of birth of the true Messiah, 
Jesus Christ.”
-Is Christmas Christian? 
Volume 6, Issue 6  
By John H. Ogwyn

“Almost every year, newspapers and magazines 
will publish articles pointing out that Christmas 
customs originate not from the Bible, but from pagan 
antiquity. Most readers, when faced with these facts, 
simply say: “I don’t see what difference it makes,” 
and continue with their Christmas preparations. 
Instead of seeking to put Christ back into Christmas, 
we must acknowledge that He was never there 
in the first place! Christmas never was Christian! 
True Christians will give it back to the pagans.  
We ought to take our religious customs and practices 
directly from the Bible. Then we will be worshiping 
our Creator in spirit and truth, just as He teaches 
us to do (John 4:24).”

In Conclusion –

What else can be said about Christmas and
“Babylon the Great” that has not already been
covered by the above secular quotes ?

Many say, “but I do it for my children.”

Others may say, “but I do it for my parents.”

But Listen to what Jesus Says –

Jesus said, “…anyone who loves his son 
or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.”
(Matthew 10:37b)(NIV)-BibleGateway

“Anyone who loves his father or mother 
more than me is not worthy of me….”
(Matthew 10:37a)(NIV)-BibleGateway

Jesus said – “Stand up for me 
against world opinion and I’ll stand up 
for you before my Father in heaven.”
(Matthew 10:32)(MSG)-BibleGateway

Jesus said – “He who loves and takes more pleasure 
in father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; 
and he who loves and takes more pleasure in son 
or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.”
(Matthew 10:37)(AMP)-BibleGateway
