Sixteen Crucified Saviors? Why Messiah’s Birthday Matters!

By Maria Merola
© Copyright Double Portion Inheritance, April 2002

Ever since I began researching and blogging about the birth of our Messiah in the year 2002, many have written to me with questions and comments. Some have commended me for the research I have done, while others seem to object to the idea that we should even care about when our Messiah was born. These people rationalize that the date does not matter. They say things like “Why, Maria, do you care so much about when Jesus was born?” 

One of the classic responses that I hear from those who are unwilling to give up the pagan practices associated with Christmas goes something like this: “What difference does it make when Jesus was born? They rationalize to themselves and to others by stating the obvious “What really matters is that he came to earth to be our Savior.

At first glance, these rationalizations sounds pretty logical. However, what many don’t realize is that Satan has many “impostors” who came before the genuine Messiah, Yahuwshuwa was born. Each of these impostors had many similarities to what we have all been taught about “Jesus Christ.” 

Many of these impostors have had births on December 25th, and resurrections on Easter Sunday (March 25th the Vernal Equinox). A book has been written by a New Age enthusiast named Kersey Graves entitled “The World’s Sixteen Crucified Saviors.” You can read the book online at this link:

In this book, Kersey Graves tries to discredit Yahuwshuwa as the one true Messiah by detailing the similarities of the impostors who came before him. He seems to think that because Satan has used the same birthday for all of his pagan sun-gods (December 25th). This book attempts to prove the real Messiah is also another pagan myth, propagated by the money-making religious leaders. 

In his attempt to make Yahuwshuwa look like just another fairy tale, he in fact proves just the opposite. For Yahuwshuwa to be “Set-apart,” he must not be included in the Pantheon of all the impostors who came before him. As the authentic Messiah, (whom that the prophets of Yisra’el foretold about), he must be distinguished from all the others.

The Only Son Begotten of the Father

Yahuwchanon (John) 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. 

Yahuwchanon (John) 1:18 No man has seen Elohiym at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he has declared him.

What does this phrase mean, “The only begotten of the Father?”

#3439. monogenes mon-og-en-ace' from 3441 and 1096; only-born, i.e. sole:--only (begotten, child). 

#3440. monon mon'-on neuter of 3441 as adverb; merely:--alone, but, only.

This phrase “The only begotten of the Father,” means that he is the only one of his kind, whose conception was by the Spirit of YaHuWaH, and whose birth was on a unique event that took place on the Feast of Trumpets, in the seventh Hebrew month of Ethaniym. To learn more, see my other blog entitled “When Was the Messiah of Israel Born?”

We see a hint of our Messiah’s birth taking place on the Feast of Trumpets in 1st Kings 8:12, when King Solomon moved the Ark of the Covenant from the City of David (where our Messiah was born), to the permanent Temple. Following that event, the people celebrated for fourteen days. They celebrated for seven days between the Feast of Trumpets, and the Day of Atonement; and then another seven days from the Day of Atonement until the completion of the Feast of Tabernacles. On the eighth day of Tabernacles, Solomon sent the people home. This tells us that he brought out the Ark (symbolic of Messiah), on the Feast of Trumpets (see 1st Kings 8:65-66). 

This Messianic prophecy foretells of the day, when the Kingdom of Judah will look upon their Messiah, as the “The only son of the Father.” The Hebrew word is for the phrase his only son 

Zecharyahuw (Zechariah) 12:10 And I will pour upon the house of Dawiyd (David), and upon the inhabitants of Yerushalayim (Jerusalem), the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

The genuine Messiah could not have been a reincarnation of all the pagan gods from ancient Mystery Babylon. He would also have a name that would be very similar to the name of his heavenly Father (see John 5:43; Proverbs 30:4). In Revelation 19:10, we are told that “The Testimony of Yahuwshuwa is the spirit of prophecy.” 

If our Messiah’s testimony was meant to fulfill prophecy, we must conclude that his birth (which is part of his testimony) should take place on a significant, and prophetic day, that was already known to the children of Yisra’el. In Leviticus 23, the children of Yisra’el were commanded to observe seven annual Feast Days of YaHuWaH which were given as a sign of our eternal covenant with him (Exodus 31:13, Ezekiel 20:12, 20:20). These feast days were given as a memorial to remind Yisra’el of the salvation of Elohiym out of Egyptian slavery. 

In keeping with the theme of deliverance, and salvation, it would be fitting, that the Messiah of Yisra’el, would also be born into the world during one of these seven feasts, for they were meant to call into remembrance, the salvation of our Elohiym. However, the impostors who came before the true, and genuine Messiah, would not be permitted to appear on one of these holy feast days. 

The devil, knowing that our Messiah is referred to in Malachi 4:2 as “The sun of righteousness,” would attempt to counterfeit him, by deceiving humanity into worshiping the object of the sun, rather than the one who created the sun. Colossians 1:16 tells us that the Messiah, Yahuwshuwa created all things (including the sun). 

He is called “The light of the world,” (John 8:15), and this is why the sun is used in prophecy as a metaphor of him. We are commanded, however, not worship the created things in nature, but only the creator, himself (Romans 1:25).

In Genesis 1:14-18, Elohiym created the celestial bodies (the sun, moon, and stars) in order to help us measure time. However, the devil has tried to convince humanity to worship these celestial bodies, in order to trick us into worshiping him, rather than the creator. This explains why the sun has been an object of worship since the beginning of time. 

The Tower of Babel

The first hint of humans worshiping the celestial bodies is found in Genesis 11:4, where they said “Let us build us a city, and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name.” In the previous chapter, (Genesis 10:8), we learn that Noah’s great grandson, Nimrod was the one who built the kingdom of Babel. 

The name “Babel” literally means “confusion, because it was at the Tower of Babel where YaHuWaH confused their languages in order to prevent them from continuing to build the tower. 

The people wanted to consult the stars for divination purposes, which is forbidden in Deuteronomy 18:10-11. The people of Babel wanted to become famous upon the earth for their spiritual prowess and ability to tell the future. It was here that the counterfeit religion called “Mystery Babylon,” (Revelation 17:5) was born, and Nimrod was a counterfeit Messiah. 

The Jewish Historian, Josephus says of Nimrod:

“Now it was Nimrod who excited them to such an affront and contempt of Elohiym. He was the grandson of Ham, the son of Noah -- a bold man, and of great strength of hand. He persuaded them not to ascribe it to Elohiym, as if it were through his means they were happy, but to believe that it was their own courage which procured that happiness. 

He also gradually changed the government into tyranny -- seeing no other way of turning men from the fear of Elohiym, but to bring them into a constant dependence upon his own power. He also said he would be revenged on Elohiym, if he should have a mind to drown the world again; for that he would build a tower too high for the waters to be able to reach! And that he would avenge himself on Elohiym for destroying their forefathers” ---- (Antiquities 1: iv: 2).

What Josephus says here is precisely what is found in the Gilgamesh epics. Gilgamesh set up tyranny, he opposed YaHuWaH, and did his utmost to get people to forsake Him.

Ziggurat At Ancient Ur
Often attributed to Nimrod, the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11:1-9) was not a Jack & the Beanstalk type of construction, where people were trying to build a structure to get into heaven. Instead, it is best understood as an ancient ziggurat, or an Assyrian “mountaintop.” The one pictured here, is from ancient Ur of the Chaldees, Abraham’s hometown (Genesis 11:31). A ziggurat was a man-made structure with a temple at its top, built to worship the host of heaven (fallen angels). 

Two of the premiere commentators on the Hebrew Scriptures, have this to say about Genesis 10:9: 
“Nimrod was mighty in hunting, and that in opposition to YaHuWaH; not “before YaHuWaH” in the sense of according to the will and purpose of YaHuWaH, still less, . . . in a simply superlative sense . . . The name itself, “Nimrod” from “marad,” “we will revolt,” points to some violent resistance to Elohiym . . .
Nimrod as a mighty hunter founded a powerful kingdom; and the founding of this kingdom is shown by the consequence or result of his strength in hunting, so that hunting was intimately connected with the establishing of the kingdom. 
Hence, if the expression “a mighty hunter” relates primarily to hunting in the literal sense, we must add to the literal meaning the figurative signification of a “hunter of men” (a trapper of men by stratagem and force); Nimrod the hunter became a tyrant, a powerful hunter of men”--- (Keil and Delitzsch 1975: 165).
“In the face of YaHuWaH can only mean ‘In defiance of YaHuWaH,” as Josephus and the Targums understand it---Dr. David Livingston at this website:
Nimrod was a historical counterfeit Messiah, the one who claimed to be a reincarnation of the pagan sun-deity. He was said to be born or reincarnated at the Winter Solstice. In Ezekiel 8:14-16, the prophet Ezekiel was shown that the elders of of the kingdom of Judah were worshiping the sun-god named “Tammuz,” who is said to be a reincarnation of Nimrod.
When our Messiah explained that there were others who had come before him as thieves and robbers, who could he have possibly been speaking about? Nimrod & Tammuz were the counterfeits that our Messiah warned us about:
Yahuwchanon (John) 10:8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
There are some Christians who have accused me of deviating from preaching the gospel, because I emphasize the importance of keeping the weekly Sabbath, as well as the seven annual “Feasts of YaHuWaH.” 

However, what many fail to realize is that the genuine Messiah had to fulfill all seven feasts in order to authenticate him as the true Messiah of Yisra’el. 
Therefore, we cannot preach a genuine Messiah, nor a genuine gospel unless we are preaching about the one who was born on a biblical feast.  
The same people who accuse me of not preaching the gospel say things like “Why don’t you spend your time preaching the gospel instead of bashing Christmas?”
My response to them is: “What exactly is the good news?”
The good news is found in the testimony of our Messiah, Yahuwshuwa!

And what exactly is our Messiah’s testimony? Revelation 19:10 tells us that it is the Spirit of prophecy!” All of his testimonies, from his birth, to his death, burial, and resurrection are foretold in his holy feast days!

We are commanded by our Messiah to keep the Passover in REMEMBRANCE of him:

1st Qorintiym (Corinthians) 11:25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do you, as often as you drink it (ever year on Passover), in remembrance of me.

The Apostle Sha’uwl (Paul) even commanded the Corinthians to “Keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread under the Renewed/New Covenant!

1st Qorintiym (Corinthians) 5:

7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, as you are unleavened. For even Mashiyach (Messiah) our Passover is sacrificed for us:

8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

The dragon is only angry with the elect, but who are they? Who are these who are called the remnant of the seed of the woman?” 

These people have something that no other people group on earth has. What do they have? Revelation 12:17 says that they “have the testimony of Yahuwshuwa!” If Messiah has a testimony that amounts to the spirit of prophecy, and his elect have this very same testimony, what could this possibly mean?

The woman in Revelation 12 is Jerusalem. In Galatians 4:26, the Apostle Sha’uwl (Paul) says that Jerusalem is “the mother of us all.” This woman will ultimately give birth to a man-child, also called “the one new man,” (Ephesians 2:15). This group of people consist of Jewish and Gentile followers of the Messiah Yahuwshuwa. 

Chazown (Revelation) 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of YHWH, and have the testimony of Yahuwshuwa Mashiyach (Messiah).

You will notice that these people also keep the commandments of YaHuWaH, and they have the Testimony of Yahuwshuwa!

If we keep his annual Sabbaths (his holy feast days), as well as the weekly seventh-day Sabbath, then we have the testimony of Yahuwshuwa Messiah!

YaHuWaH says that his Sabbaths are a SIGN” between us and him forever:

Shemoth (Exodus) 31:13 Speak you also unto the children of Yisra’el, saying, Verily my Sabbaths you shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that you may know that I am YHWH that does sanctify you.

In Yechezqel (Ezekiel) 9, YaHuWaH tells the writer with the ink horn in his hand to place a mark on the forehead of those that sigh and cry at the abominations” that are being done in Jerusalem in the last days. In the next chapter, Ezekiel is shown exactly what these abominations are that they “SIGH AND CRY” about.

1.) They set up the IMAGE OF JEALOUSY (Ezekiel 8:3).

This is what is known as the Egyptian Obelisk or the Washington Monument. It is meant to represent Nimrod’s phallus (penis). It is a talisman and it has powerful witchcraft power! These are also placed on the roof-tops of church buildings as STEEPLES!

YaHuWaH commands us to tear down these images which are called “Asherah poles” in Hebrew. 

What are Asherah Poles? 

The word “asher” means “erect or straight” and it reminds YaHuWaH of the idolatry that  Yisra’el committed with Nimrod’s penis! 

The children of Yisra’el went into the “groves” or forests and they had orgies under trees. 

They carved the tops of these  trees to look like Egyptian Obelisks or steeples! See Exodus 34:13, Deuteronomy 7:5, 12:3; 2nd Kings 18:4. As you can see, the Christ-Mass Tree is none other than this “the image of jealousy.” 

The King James Version uses the word “groves,” but in Hebrew the word is “Asherah.” 
Debariym (Deuteronomy) 12:2 You shall utterly destroy all the places, wherein the nations which you shall possess served their gods, upon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under every green tree:
1st Melekiym (Kings) 14:23 For they also built them high places, and images, and groves (asherah), on every high hill, and under every green tree.
2nd Melekiym (Kings) 16:4 And he sacrificed and burnt incense in the high places, and on the hills, and under every green tree.
2nd Melekiym (Kings) 17:10 And they set them up images and groves (asherah) in every high hill, and under every green tree:
Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah) 10:

1 Hear you the word which YHWH speaks unto you, O house of Yisra’el:

2 Thus says YHWH, 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 cuts 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.

2.) They put up carved images in the Temple of YaHuWaH (Ezekiel 8:10).

They decorated the walls of the Temple with all kinds of animals and creeping things. In other words, idols and sculptures. Today, Catholic Churches set up images of supposedly Mary (Miriyam) the mother of our Messiah, whom they call THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN. Yet, the real mother of our Messiah is never called the Queen of Heaven in scripture! 

Who is the Queen of Heaven? 

The first mention of this pagan goddess of fertility is in Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah) 7:18 wherein YaHuWaH expresses vehement anger towards the House of Yahuwdah (Judah) because they baked cakes to her and they also burned incense in her honor (Jeremiah 44:17,18,19 & 25). 

This goddess is the recycled pagan goddess known as Semiramis (the mother & wife of Nimrod). Her identity remained the same in various cultures after the Tower of Babel, was broken up, but her name changed. In other cultures she was known as Isis, Venus, Aphrodite, Easter, Asherah, Diana, etc. 

The Roman Emperor Constantine in the third century transformed the Roman statues of this same goddess named Venus into the “Madonna & Child” statue which was supposedly meant to represent Mary & baby Jesus. 

This familiar image that people see on Christmas cards is not a Christian idea. It dates all the way back to ancient Babylon! 

It originated as a statue of Semiramis holding her baby son Tammuz from the Tower of Babel!

3.) Women Weeping for Tammuz (Ezekiel 8:14).

Tammuz was the pagan sun-god who was supposedly born-again (reincarnated) each December 25th, and conceived on Easter (March 25th, on the Vernal Equinox). When Tammuz was forty years of age, he died on Easter, while hunting in the woods. He was killed by a wild boar (a pig), which is how the custom of eating Easter Ham began. The custom of women “weeping for Tammuz” began in ancient Babylon, with the wife of Nimrod (Semiramis). She was said to have ordered the Babylonians to fast for forty days, so that in the after-life, Tammuz would enjoy the comforts and pleasures of paradise. 

They believed that if they sacrificed forty days of pleasure in this life, they would help Tammuz in the after-life who was stuck in Purgatory. Purgatory is a mythological place invented by the wife of Nimrod (Semiramis). She is the one credited with creating this myth, in order to solicit financial support from the Babylonians. Purgatory is considered an intermediate state of death, (half-way between heaven & hell), where a person goes, if they had not fully repented of their trivial sins. The pagans believe they can pray for loved ones in Purgatory to help “bail them out” quicker, and thus help them earn their way to heaven. This practice of praying for the dead, and to the dead is an abomination to YaHuWaH, for it is called  Necromancy (Deuteronomy 18:10-11).

This is where the Catholic tradition of “Lent” actually began. The Babylonians would “fast and weep” for forty days, leading up to Easter Sunday. They offered up newborn babies on the altar, as a blood sacrifice for Tammuz, and his mother Semiramis. It was the blood of these sacrificed infants that was then used to dye Easter Eggs! 

4.) They worshiped the sun-god (Ezekiel 8:16).

Since the days following the flood, it takes approximately 365.25 days for the earth to make a full revolution around the sun each year. Each year on December 21st, (the winter solstice), the sun appears to be furthest away from the earth. This is because because the earth is tilted on it’s axis at this time of year. In their ignorance, the ancient Babylonians thought this meant their sun-god was dying, and it was their responsibility to bring him back to life again. They believed that by offering up an innocent human victim (especially an innocent child), they could appease the wrath of their false god, Moloch, and thus, he would be empowered to rise again on the third day from the winter solstice. Even to this day, Luciferians, pagans, occultists and witches gather around each year at a place called “Stonehenge” to worship the sun!

On December 21st (the winter solstice), it is the shortest day in the year. However, on December 25th at sunrise, the sun is visible through the windows of Stonehenge. This is when the heathen rejoice that the sun-god has been reborn. You will notice that they are wearing the traditional red & green Christmas colors. Red is for the blood sacrifices that are done in honor of the sun-god, and green is for the god of the tree, Baal. The Druids call him “The Green Man.” You will also notice the green wreaths that they are wearing around their heads in honor of their sun-god, Lucifer.

In astrology, this time of year is considered the beginning of the cycle of “Capricorn the Goat, ” who is also Lucifer, (the half-goat, half-human creature),  also called Pan. Luciferians believe that “Jesus is a reincarnation of Lucifer, the sun-god who is now being born-again (reincarnated) on December 25th, which in paganism is referred to as the rebirth of the sun! 

This is the best time for them to practice their magick and sorcery because they believe that the sun, moon and stars are aligned perfectly for the demons to do their bidding at this time. Therefore, worshiping nature, trees and the “elements,” such as mistletoe and holly, etc. is a way to “awaken” the planetary mother (the goddess Gaia), and to arouse the powers and principalities of Satan.

The Yisra’elites also learned these very same practices from the pagan nations that surrounded them. This was out of sheer rebellion to our Creator, who strictly forbade them from imitating or learning the ways of the heathen (Deuteronomy 12:29-32, 18:10-11, Jeremiah 10). 

The House of Yisra’el was eventually banished from their land, and given a divorce decree (Jeremiah 3:8). What detesable thing could they have done, to cause Elohiym to banish them from the land he had promised to give? If you havent figured it out by now, it is because they worshiped this one who was reincarnated on December 25thModern Christianity practices these very same things, as did ancient Yisrael, and yet, they think Yah wont judge them for this? Instead of worshiping the true Messiah Yahuwshuwa,  who bore our sins on the tree, they celebrate Tammuz who was killed by the boar.

Instead of honoring Yahuwshuwa as the Passover Lamb, they celebrate Tammuz who was killed by the Easter Ham. This is an abomination to our Heavenly Father, and yet many continue to justify it. What other abominations was Ezekiel shown?

5.) They Put the Branch to the Nose (Ezekiel 8:17).

This branch is mistletoe in honor of Nimrod! This custom derives from worshiping Ba’al the god of the tree. Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah) 10 commands us not to learn the ways of the heathen by going into the forest, cutting down a tree and decorating it with silver and gold balls. 


In Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 14:12-19, we read about Lucifer who was the fallen angel who possessed the King of Babylon (Nimrod). Nimrod was the very first “Anti-Messiah” (Antichrist) leader in history, because he opposed the anointing of YaHuWaH.  

Nimrod was hunted down and finally killed by Noahs son Shem because of his many crimes against children. Then his body parts were chopped off like limbs to a tree and delivered to various provinces in the land of Shinar. The only body part of Nimrod that was never found was his penis, and so his mother/wife Semiramis made an image of his penis to be worshiped!

Semiramis ordered the Babylonians to cut down a tree in the forest, bring it home and then decorate it with silver and gold balls to commemorate Nimrod (the balls were supposed to be his testicles). Isaiah 14:12 speaks about this event when it says that Lucifer was “cut down to the ground” (like a tree), and like an “abominable branch.” Lucifer is the exact anti-thesis to our Messiah Yahuwshuwa who is called “The Righteous Branch” (Jeremiah 23:5, 33:15). 

Satan wants desperately to counterfeit the true Messiah by deceiving people into worshiping created things rather than the Creator himself (Romans 1:26).

Seven, the Number of Covenant

The number 
seven is revealed to us over and over again in scripture as the number that symbolizes “covenant.” 

This is the reason why YaHuWaH rested on the 7th day following the creation of the heavens and the earth (Genesis 2:2-3). 

The 7th day of the week is what he sanctified and called “qodesh” (holy). YaHuWaH then set a rainbow in the sky for Noah as a sign of his covenant with mankind that he would never again flood the earth. 

The rainbow has seven colors in it which are: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. YaHuWaH also gave his bride seven feasts to observe each year as a “sign” our marriage agreement with him. He also gave us the seventh day as a Sabbath of rest, which is a microcosm to the seventh millennium. In this weekly Sabbath, we are reminded that the 7,000th year from creation will be our wedding day!

2nd Keefa (Peter) 3:8 says “One day is as a thousand years with YHWH and a thousand years is as one day.”

There are also seven lamps on the Temple Menorah, and seven congregations in the first three chapters of the book of Revelation. YaHuWaH also manifests as “seven spirits” and there are “seven eyes” of the 
Lamb who was slain (Isaiah 11:1-2; Revelation 1:4, 3:1, 4:5, 5:6). 
There are also seven covenants revealed within seven millennia:

1). Adamic Covenant: symbolized by the ground of the earth.
2). Noahic Covenant: symbolized by the rainbow.
3). Abraham Covenant: symbolized by the stars in heaven and sands on the seashore.
4). Mosaic Covenant: symbolized by the Two Tablets of the Towrah (Law).
5). Davidic Covenant: symbolized by Jerusalem.
6). The Renewed Covenant of Messiah: symbolized by the Passover Cup and the Bread
7). The Covenant of Peace: anticipated by the Messianic Kingdom.

While each of these covenants are with different persons and made at different times, they all share one description. YaHuWaH refers to them individually and collectively as an “Everlasting Covenant.” 

And finally, YaHuWaH has designated seven months on the Hebrew Calendar that are specifically set aside for seven Feasts of YaHuWaH. And guess which month the true Messiah was born in? The seventh month of Tishri!

And so you see, any “holiday” that does not fit this identifying criteria of the number seven, does not point to the true covenant that YaHuWaH has made with Yisra’el! 

Satan has a false set of feasts (eight pagan Sabbaths annually) that are not set-apart by our Creator. His false pagan holidays all point to the pagan sun-gods who are always reincarnated (purportedly) at the “winter solstice” on December 25th. Satan has a false Sabbath which is also the first day of the week, called “Sun-day.”

This is how we are able to tell the difference between the real Messiah versus the false  Messiah! 

The genuine Messiah named Yahuwshuwa fulfilled all seven of these feasts and he was born in the seventh Hebrew month on one of these seven feasts. But the false Messiahs are always born on Satan’s false pagan feast! 

The genuine Messiah has given his bride a seventh-day Sabbath, which points to their marriage covenant. But the false Messiahs have a false Sabbath-day which does not fall on the seventh day! 

When was the true Messiah of Yisrael born? And how does his date of birth validate him as the genuine prophesied Messiah from the TaNaKh (Old Testament) prophets? 

Dr. Ernest L. Martin wrote an inspiring book detailing the astronomical account of Revelation 12 which reveals the birth of the one and only true Messiah Yahuwshuwa. I highly recommend reading this book.

On this website, called Associates for Scriptural Knowledge, Dr. Ernest L. Martin, Ph.D. answers the famous question about why dates do matter when it comes to celebrating the birth and resurrection of Yahuwshuwa Messiah.

The entire book can be downloaded free online and the radio interviews and lectures are also available here:

A flashplayer movie can be seen at the link below detailing the astrological events that took place on that night of Yahuwshuwa’s  birth as seen on MSNBC:

*Dr. Ernest Martin’s article can be read below:

Dr. Martin has painstakingly done the astronomical research which proves that our Messiahs true birth took place on September 11th in 3 B.C. which fell on the Feast of Trumpets aka Yom Teruwah. Dr. Martin cites in this article, the following observation: 

The pagans are different. They all admire (and most of the accounts regarding these False Messiahs of the past dogmatically state) that the pagan Christs were almost all born on December 25th in the various years for the two thousand and more years of time that Satan introduced them into the world to deceive the world with Satan’s False Christs. These are well-known facts that all honest and capable historians understand and recognize.

Dr. Martin goes on to show why the date of 
December 25th only serves to invalidate Yahuwshuwa as the true and genuine Messiah. He writes:

....Indeed, a book has recently been published that is highly critical of the story of Christ as shown in the Holy Scriptures. It is written by a man by the name of David Icke and it is called ‘Children of the Matrix. In this book he singles out scores of False Christs that were introduced into the world from 2000 B.C. to 300 A.D. 

He was amazed that so many of the things that the Bible says the true Christ would possess as far as characteristics were concerned, these False Christs had acquired in some form. And some of those factors were indeed like those that the true Christ (Jesus Christ of Nazareth) showed to the world. But also, in ALMOST EVERY CASE, there were telltale signs that these scores of False Christs were simply that, THEY WERE FALSE CHRISTS. Why is this?

It is because in ALMOST EVERY CASE, the essential signs of identification concerning their times of nativity were NOT sanctioned by God and they show that these individuals were FALSE CHRISTS....

Dr. Martin continues:

What was one of the most significant signs that these early pagan deities were FALSE and COUNTER to the true Christ? The single factor deals with their births. ALMOST ALL OF THESE FALSE CHRISTS were born on December 25th (like our False Christ with his beard and long-hair that the world worships today). That’s right. 

God has allowed us Christians of the End-Time to be able to recognize these FALSE CHRISTS because they were ALMOST ALWAYS born on December 25th. Let me quote two pages from this critical book of Christianity. 

You will notice that the man has painstakingly identified a Pandora’s Box of False Christs who can be proved to be FALSE CHRISTS because of their birthdays at the Winter Solstice of December 25th

This is why I have adamantly taught true Christians today to avoid this false date for the Nativity, because it identifies the FALSE CHRISTS OF THE WORLD (as history plainly shows) and NOT the true Christ who was born on September 11th in 3 B.C. on the Jewish holy day of Rosh haShanah. 

Let us note what the author of Children of the Matrix has to say. He singles out some of the most prominent of the PAGAN GODS that the apostles condemned and told Christians to avoid.

Satan’s Counterfeit “Saviors.”

Attis, the Son of God of Phrygia:

He was born on December 25th to a virgin mother. He was called a “saviour,” the only begotten son, and died to save humanity. He was crucified on a Friday –“Black Friday” - and his blood was spilled to redeem the Earth. He suffered death “with nails and stakes”. He was the Father and Son combined in an earthly body. He was put in a tomb, went down into the underworld, but three days later, on March 25th, (Easter, the goddess of fertility and sex) his body was found to have disappeared from the tomb and he was resurrected as the “Most High God.” His body was symbolized as bread and eaten by those who worshiped him.

Krishna (Christ), the Son of God of India:

He was born to a virgin mother on December 25th and his father was a carpenter. A star marked his birthplace, and angels and shepherds attended. The ruler slaughtered thousands of infants in an effort to kill him, but he survived and went on to perform miracles and heal the sick, including lepers, the blind, and the deaf. He died at about the age of 30 and some traditions say he was crucified on a tree. He was also portrayed on a cross, rose from the dead, and was considered the saviour. 

His followers apparently knew him as “Jezeus” or “Jeseus,” which means “pure essence.” It is said that he will return on a white horse to judge the dead and fight the “Prince of Evil.”

Dionysus or Bacchus, the Son of God of Greece:

He was born to a virgin mother on December 25th and put in a manger wrapped in swaddling clothes. He was a teacher who traveled, performing miracles. He turned water into wine (like the Sun) and rode in triumph on an ass (so did the Egyptian deity, Set). He was the ram or the lamb, God of the Vine, God of Gods and King of Kings, Only Begotten Son, bearer of sins, Redeemer, Anointed One (Christos), Alpha and Omega. 

He was hung and crucified on a tree, but rose from the dead on March 25th (Easter). During the 1st century BC, the Hebrews in Jerusalem also worshiped this deity. J.M. Roberts writes in Antiquity Unveiled (Health Research, 1970) that “IES, the Phoenician name for Bacchus, offers the origin to Jesus.” He says IES can be broken up into “I” (the one) and “es” (fire and light). Taken as one word, “ies” means the one light. 

He goes on: “This is none other than the light of St John’s gospel; and this name is to be found everywhere on Christian altars, both Protestant and Catholic, thus clearly showing that the Christian religion is but a modification of Oriental Sun Worship, attributed to Zoroaster. The Christians read the same letters ‘IHS’ in the Greek text as ‘Jes’ and the Roman Christian priesthood added the terminus ‘us’.”

The author, David Icke, continues: 
Here are some of the other pre-Christian deities of whom the Jesus story was told

Apollo, Hercules, and Zeus of Greece; Adad and Marduk of Assyria; Buddha Sakia and Indra of India and Tibet; Salivahana of southern India and Bermuda; Osiris and Horus of Egypt; Odin, Balder, and Frey of Scandinavia; Crite of Chaldea; Zoroaster of Persia; Baal (Bel) and Taut of Phoenicia; Bali of Afghanistan; Jao of Nepal; Wittoba of Bilingonese; Xamobds of Thrace; Zoar of the Bonzes; Chu Chulainn of Ireland; Deva Tat, Codom, and Sammonocadam of Siam; Alcides of Thebes; Mikado of the Sintoos; Beddru of Japan; Hesus or Eros, and Bremrillaham of the Druids; Thor, son of Odin, of Gauls; Cadmus of Greece; Hil and Feta of Mandaites; Gentaut and Quetzalcoatl of Mexico; Universal Monarch of the Sibyls; Ischy of Formosa; Divine Teacher of Plato; Holy One of Xaca; Fohi, Ieo, Lao-Kium, Chiang-Ti, and Tien of China; Ixion and Quirnus of Rome; Prometheus of the Caucasus; Mohammed or Mahomet of Arabia, Dahzbog of the Slavs; Jupiter, Jove, and Quirinius of Rome; Mithra of Persia, India, and Rome.

Ernest L. Martin comments on David Ickes research from above: 

David Icke is expressing real nonsense on his part. There is, however, a common denominator that is found in all these False Christs which is diametrically opposite from the real Christ of the Holy Scriptures (and he and other scholars should have had enough sense to figure it out). ALL THESE FALSE CHRISTS HAVE ONE THING IN COMMON. 

They ALL teach that in their nativities of the PAGAN CHRISTS (as far as can be determined, and David Icke would agree with this) their celebrants have selected December 25th for their BIRTHDAYS! They also chose the Vernal Equinox (March 25th) for their false resurrections, whereas the true Christ Jesus was resurrected at least 15 days AFTER the Equinox as the Bible plainly proves. 

This means that the true time period of the Nativity and Resurrection of the Messiah become important identifying signs of the true Christ, while ALL THE PAGAN CHRISTS are almost always associated with the Spring Equinox (March 25th for their supposed resurrections) and the Winter Solstice (December 25th for their Nativities). If any of the teachings of these mimickers of Messiah mention the day of the birth or resurrection of their FALSE CHRISTS, they almost always select the Winter Solstice or the Spring Equinox. While in many, many other ways there are similar outward characteristics of the true Christ.

What this means in clear language is this: the WORLD is still selecting the PAGAN DAYS THAT IDENTIFY ALL THE FALSE CHRISTS OF THE WORLD, while the true dates as given in the Holy Scriptures for showing who is the real CHRIST identify only ONE INDIVIDUAL in all the history of the world. That single personage is the true MESSIAH, JESUS who was born on September 11th in 3 B.C. and died about 15 days after the Spring Equinox as my research on early New Testament Chronology proves.

*Dr. Ernest Martins’s article ends and Maria’s article begins again here*

To see the full research that I have done (including that of Dr. Ernest L. Martins) which proves that the genuine Messiah Yahuwshuwa was born on September 11, in 3 B.C. on Yom Teruwah (Feast of Trumpets) see my other article entitled: “When Was the Real Messiah Born & Why Does it Matter?”

Nimrod, the Original Antichrist Born on December 25th

Pictured here is the mythological reincarnated Nimrod, Ba’al, Valentine, the Mighty Hunter, Faunus, Lupercus. He is the same Baphomet or the Goat of Mendez worshiped by Freemasons at the 30th, 31st, 32nd & 33rd degrees. Satan has many aliases.

Who Was Nimrod?

Nimrod, the mulatto son of Cush the Ethiopian, was later a source of embarrassment to the paganized Christians of Europe. 

They didn’t want an African to worship. Consequently, they substituted a supposed son of Nimrod, a white child named Horus, born after the death of Nimrod. This white child then became the “fair cupid” of European tradition.

Nimrod was the great grandson of Noah, and he was said to be a “mighty hunter” before YaHuWaH:

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 10:9 He was a mighty hunter before YHWH: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before YHWH.

Some people think that this is a positive connotation of being a hunter Before YaHuWaH” but if you look up the Hebrew word for “before” in Genesis 10, it reveals that he did these rebellious child sacrifices in front of YaHuWaH’s face! He hunted people and used them for sacrifices! 

We can read about this in the Antiquities of Josephus, in the book of Jasherand also in “The Two Babylons” by Alexander Hislop.

The word “before” in Hebrew is #6440: paniym

Face, presence, person, surface (of ground), before and behind, toward, in front of, forward, formerly, from beforetime, before, in the presence ofin the face of, at the face or front of, from the presence of, from before, from before the face of.

Nimrod did these evil things right in the face of YaHuWaH which is a way of saying that he was arrogant and had no shame for his atrocities. Author of “Nimrod the Mighty Valentine,” Herman L. Hoeh, February 1966 reveals more history about Nimrod at this website:

Executed at Rome

Nimrod -- THE ORIGINAL ST. VALENTINE -- was also known as Saturn, the Roman-Babylonian god who HID from his pursuers in a secret place.

The Latin word Saturn is derived from the Semitic-speaking Babylonians. It means “to be hid, hide self, secret, conceal.”  The original Semitic (Hebrew) word, from which the Latin Saturn is derived, is used 83 times in the Old Testament (see Young’s Concordance) under “Sathar,” also “sether.”

According to ancient tradition, Saturn (Nimrod) fled from his pursuers to Italy. The Apennine Mountains of Italy were anciently named the mountains of Nembrod or Nimrod. 

Nimrod briefly hid out at the site where Rome was later built. The ancient name of Rome, before it was rebuilt in 753 B.C., was Saturnia -- the site of Saturn’s (Nimrod’s) hiding. 

There he was found and slain for his crimes. Later, professing Christians in Constantine’s day made Nimrod -- the St. Valentine of the heathen -- a saint of the Church and continued to honor him under the name of a Christian martyr.

Nimrod Was Killed at the Seven Hills of Rome

In the book of Yasher (Jasher), we are told that Esau, the twin brother of Ya’aqob (Jacob) was the one who actually killed Nimrod. But author of “The Two Babylon’s,” Alexander Hislop tells us that it was Noah’s son Shem who killed Nimrod. Here is what I, Maria Merola believe might have happened:

“I believe that Shem put out a bounty hunt on Nimrod’s life, and he was the one who ordered the killing, but it was Esau who actually killed Nimrod.”

The Book of Yasher Fills in the Missing Pieces 

It says in the book of Yasher (Jasher) that Esau wanted the animal skins that Nimrod wore. These animal skins were the very same ones that YaHuWaH made for Adam & Chawah (Eve) in the Garden of Eden after they sinned. 

I highly suspect that when YaHuWaH made these animal skins from a slaughtered lamb, this was done for them on Yom Kippur. Genesis 3:21 says that Elohiym “Made coats of skins, and clothed them.”

The Hebrew word for “coats” is “kethoneth” meaning “to cover.” This was the first “day of covering” in history. This is the precise meaning of “Yom Kippur.” The word 
“kippur” means “to atone,” and it comes from the root word “kaphar,” which means “to cover.” I believe this was the first “Day of Atonement,” which can also mean “Day of Covering.” For Adam & Eve, these animal skins became their priestly garments.

These garments were then handed down to their son Hebel (Abel), whose animal sacrifices were received by YaHuWaH. This is why his brother, Qayin (Cain) killed him. He wanted his brother’s sacred priestly garment (skins), because they were blessed and gave the person who wore them favor with the animals. 

You see, the animal skins were supposed to make animals submit to anyone trying to kill them for a sacrifice to YaHuWaH. This is why Esau wanted these skins.

Later on these skins were handed down to Noah, who carried them onto the ark. When Noah cursed his son Ham (the father of Canaan), I have often wondered if it might have had something to do with these animal skins. 
Noah was “uncovered” in his tent (Genesis 9:22), because he became drunk with wine. Did Noah removed his sacred skins, and did Ham see an opportunity to steal them from his father? I am merely speculating, however, it plausible that Ham took these skins that were handed down from Adam & Eve to Noah, and this could be the reason why Noah became angry. and cursed his son. 

Ham later-on became the father of Kĕna`an (Canaan) who was the father of the nation of the Canaanites, the progenitor of the Phoenicians, and of the various nations who peopled the seacoast of Palestine. From Kĕna`an (Canaan) came Cush who bore Nimrod. Nimrod finally ended up with these animal skins of Adam & Eve, since he was a descendant of Noah’s son, (Ham). He wore them as a corrupted priest, and used them to gain control of his victims. This is why Sscripture says that Nimrod was a “mighty hunter.” 

You may be asking yourself “How could Nimrod be killed in Rome, when the Land of Shinar existed about 1,200 years before the Roman Empire?” The Land of Shinar, (where Nimrod’s kingdom once existed) is in Modern Day Iraq. The question then arises, “How could he travel to Rome, to flee from his pursuers who were trying to kill him?”

From the Pangaea map (below), we can see how Nimrod was able to flee to Rome, (for then it was called Saturnia), from the land of Shinar. During and after the flood of Noah, Rome was in closer proximity to be where Iraq is today, and there were not many large bodies of water to cross over. 

Nimrod could have fled on foot, to what was then called “Saturnia,” an ancient name for the city of Rome. In fact, Nimrod’s name in Chaldean is STUR, which has the numerical value of 666 in Hebrew Gematria. STUR is an anagram for “Satyr,” which is a half-man, half-goat like creature in mythology. It is where we derive the name “Satan.”

All ten provinces that Nimrod ruled over in the land of Shinar (Genesis 10:8-12), later became part of Ottoman Empire, ruled by Rome. 
See my other article entitled: Nimrod, the Papacy & the Assyrian

Pangaea, according to modern Science took place 240 million years ago. However, the record of Scripture tells us that it took place after the flood in the days of Noah:

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 10:

25 And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan.

32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.

This event was not the same event mentioned in Genesis 11, where YaHuWaH confounded the languages at Babel. This is a literal “splitting” of the earth’s seven continents!

The Hebrew word for “divided” is as follows:

Strong’s #6385 - palag to divide, split, (Niphal) to be splitbe divided, to split, cleave, to divide.

In Genesis 11, when YaHuWaH confounded the languages of the people at Babel, the word for confound is as follows:

Strong’s #1101 - balal to mix, mingle, confuse, confound, to give provender, feed (animals), to mix oneself (among others), to fade away

Genesis 10:25-32 tells us that “The earth was divided,” which was a literal dividing of the earth’s continents. This is what some refer to as the “Biblical Pangaea.” Modern secular Scientists purport that Pangaea occurred billions of years ago. In truth, this would have taken place within the first one hundred years following the flood in Noahs day, which was around 2358 B.C. Timeline for the Flood

In Genesis 11:7, we learn about the second event, when YaHuWaH “Confounded the languages,” of the people. Right about the time when Nimrod’s kingdom at it’s height, this is when YaHuWaH sent mass confusion to his Anti-Messiah empire, which then caused people to migrate to different parts of the earth. 

The earth’s crust began splitting, and causing the continents to shift. Consequently, the people groups were literally split away from the ancient Kingdom of Babel, and thus, their languages became confused as well. As you can see from the illustration (above), all seven of the continents were connected before the flood.

Nimrod Built the Tower of Babel

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 10:

8 And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.

9 He was a mighty hunter before YHWH: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before YHWH.

10 the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.

11 Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah,

12 And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great city.

The official title for the Vatican today is called “The Seven Hills of Rome.” These seven hills are accurately translated in the Strong’s Greek Concordance as “mountains.

#3735. oros or’-os probably from an obsolete oro (to rise or “rear”; perhaps akin to 142; compare 3733); a mountain (as lifting itself above the plain): hill, mountain.

Chazown (Revelation) 17:9 And here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits.

The Catholic Encyclopedia states: It is within the city of Rome, called the city of seven hills, that the entire area of Vatican State proper is now confined.” 
These are the same seven mountains (hills) where Nimrod was said to be slain, and resurrected (reincarnated), according to pagan mythology. Nimrod was called “Saint Valentine,” in Ancient Rome, but previously called 
“Saint Baalentine” to commemorate “Ba’al,” the god of sexual desire. 

The letter “V” was an invention of Rome, which also doubled as the Roman numeral “5.” Prior to that, all Semitic languages rendered this letter as the Hebrew “beyt” or a letter “B.” The Roman letter “V” also was used to substitute for the sixth Hebrew letter “Waw,” or the Greek Upsilon, which doubled as the long “U” vowel sound, or as the consonant “W.” 

We can now see the connection between Valentine’s Day, the papacy, and Mystery Babylon. Valentine’s Day is another custom birthed in honor of Nimrod, where he was said to be slain at the seven hills of Rome. See my other article entitled: “Valentine’s Day & Nimrod: The Original Cupid.”

Ever since Nimrod (Saturn) fled from his pursuers to “The Mountains of Nimrod,” the Romans memorialized him, and worshiped him on the Festival of Saturnalia on December 25th. Pictured below is an artists depiction of the Lord of Misrule, and his grotesque little imp who was celebrated by the Romans during Saturnalia. 


“Christ’s birthday was picked to honor the Roman Saturnalia, which was a licentious orgy representing free sex, not prostitution.”----Dictionary of Mythology Folklore and SymbolsJobes, 1961, Vol. 1, p. 332. 

“The Babylonians celebrated their “Victory of the Sun-God” Festival on December 25th. Saturnalia (the Festival of Saturn) was celebrated from December 17th – 23rd in the Roman Empire. The Roman Emperor Aurelian blended Saturnalia with a number of birth celebrations of savior gods from other religions, into a single holy day: December 25th. After much argument, the developing Christian Church adopted this date as the birthday of their savior, Jesus.--- An American Dictionary of the English Language, Noah Webster, 1856, p. 982, “SATURNALIA | SATURNALIAN.”

“Christians invented Christmas: Quite wrong, of course: Christians hijacked a pagan festival and tried to turn it into their own. It was originally a celebration of the return of the sun god on earth. The ancient Romans, for example, exchanged gifts at Saturnalia.----Lempriere’s Classical Dictionary, 1898, pg. 545, “Saturnālia.”

“Saturnalia was the winter festival honoring Saturn. This was the forerunner to the Christian holiday of Christmas.” 

“The sinister aspect of Saturn; the winter solstice...birthday of the unconquerable sun...The dead return during the twelve nights of the duration of the Saturnalia...The twelve days of Chaos symbolize the pattern of the coming months of the year. The period of Chaos is governed by the Lord of Misrule. Transvestism is a feature of the time of Chaos in Saturnalia, orgies, carnivals etc. and signifies a form of return to Chaos. Babylon held the twelve days of duel between Chaos and Cosmos; in Christianity, these are the twelve days of Christmas.”----Christmas Traditions“Twelve Days of Christmas.”

“An ancient Italian rustic god, usually equated with the Greek Cronos.  He differs from Cronos, however, in that he was regarded as an early king of Latium, whose reign was a Golden Age when life was easy and happy. He taught men how to till the fields and enjoy the gifts of civilization. He was believed by the Romans not to be native to Italy but a foreigner who, after fleeing from Jupiter (Zeus), had taken refuge in Latium. His festival, the Saturnalia, which took place in late December, was the merriest of the year”------Cliffs Notes on Mythology1973, p. 137, “Saturn.”

By the fourth Century, (during the reign of the Roman Emperor Constantine), Gnostic Christians believed that Nimrod was “reincarnated” as Mithra, the pagan sun-deity. Constantine claimed to have had a vision where he heard the words “In this sign, conquer translated in Latin as “In Hoc Signo.” He claimed to have seen the Roman Cross (Pax Romana) in the sky as he heard these words. This was his false conversion to the Messiah of the Bible. 

However, he changed our Jewish Messiah’s name to sound more like a Greco-Roman deity (Hesus). Later on, in the 1500's in England, the English letter “J was invented, and used to replace the “H” in Hesus, thus arriving at the name “Jesus.

In the Greek Septuagint, the name “Joshua, was originally spelled as “Ieosua.” However, in the 2nd Century, Gnostics such as Origen changed the spelling to “Ieosus, giving it the terminus “SUS to denote “belonging to Zeus.” Other examples of names that denote belonging to Zeus are: Tarsus (the sweat of Zeus); Dionysus (the son of Zeus). 

In reality, Constantine traded the identities of Saturn & Mithra (both born on December 25th) with the Messiah of the Bible, and declared his birthday to be on December 25thassimilating him to the pagan sun-deities
It was not until the 4th Century, however that the Roman Catholic Church made it official for the birth of Jesus Christ (Iesous Christos) to be celebrated on December 25th, calling it “The Mass of Christ.Thus, the Roman Catholic “Jesus Christ” is meant to be a reincarnation of Nimrod or Lucifer, the “New Age Christ” for all religions. 

Nimrod Leading us to the Man of Sin

As we have learned thus far, it all began with Nimrod the first  historical “Anti-Messiah” tyrant. 

Mary Stewart Relfe Ph.D. author of the book “When Your Money Fails,” describes four historical “Antichrists” of history and each one of these have names that add up to 666.

They are as follows: Nimrod, Nebuchadnezzar, Antiochus & Nero Caesar. She writes on page 65: 

Nebuchadnezzar, and absolute monarch, was one of history’s first aspirants for this lofty position, and indeed his reign most typified the reign of the Antichrist. Everyone was ordered to worship his image (60 cubits high, 6 cubits wide, and 6 instruments used); a type of worship the Antichrist will also require. Both systems of worship conspicuously bear the number 666.

On page 166 she writes:

(1) Nimrod: was the first type of Antichrist whose birthday was celebrated in ancient Rome (Saturnalia) on December 25th. In Chaldee, native language of Nimrod, Saturn is spelled STUR.

S = 60
T = 400
U = 6
R = 200

(2) Antiochus IV: a Syrian, in his attempt to Hellenize the Jews, had a pig sacrificed on the altar in Jerusalem. He forbade circumcision and destroyed all Old Testament books he could find; placed an idol of himself the official title “God Manifest,” a term in Greek EPHIPHANEIA. It has the numerical value of “666.”

(3) Caesar Nero: From the time of the early Church Fathers, theologians have been divulging to us the numerical value of his name in Hebrew. NRON KRS has the numerical value of “666.”

N = 50
R = 200
O = 6
N = 50
K = 100
R = 200
S = 60

Nero was best known for his severe persecutions of Christians (these were true followers of Messiah—unlike the paganized Christians of today’s culture). He turned them into human torches to light his garden at night. He fed them to hungry lions for entertainment. He had them run through with swords. He burned them at the stakes in public ceremonies. It is officially estimated that the number of Christians buried in the catacombs of Rome is four million. These died at the hands of Nero, and subsequent Roman Emperors, the first three centuries after Christ.

In addition to the fact that each of these historical “Antichrists” have had names that add up to 666, they all claimed to be a “reincarnation” of the pagan sun-god born on December 25thSee my other article entitled “December 25th Birth of the Antichrist.”

As we have already learned, Nimrod was killed at Saturnia (Rome’s previous name), and since the Saturnians (Romans) made him into a so-called “saint” to be worshiped, this is how the holiday of “Saturnalia” came to be celebrated on December 25th

The role of the Roman Pontiff (pope) is none other than a “reincarnated Nimrod” according to the high-ranking occultists. This fact would never be disclosed to unsuspecting Catholics however. Is it any wonder that the popes wear the “fish hat” of Dagon the pagan fish-god of the Philistines? How did this legend actually begin?

Father Christmas Has Many Aliases

The great apostate church of the Gospel Age, true to its Babylonian origin, has actually adopted this fish-god in its ritual; for the pope on certain occasion’s manifests by his head gear that he is the direct representative of Dagon. As it was an indispensable rule in all idolatrous religions that the high priest should wear the insignia of the god that he worshiped, so the sculptures discovered by Layard show that the priests of Dagon were arrayed in clothing resembling fish. This is probably the ‘strange apparel’ referred to in Zephaniah 1:8. Berosus tells us that in the image of Dagon the head of the man appeared under the head of the fish, while Layard points out that in the case of the priests “the head of the fish formed a mitre above that of the man, while its scaly, fan-like tail fell as a cloak behind, leaving the human limbs and feet exposed.”---Babylon and Nineveh, pg. 343.

In the ancient legends of the Babylonians there was ‘Oannes called Lord of the Waves. He was amphibious, having the torso and head of a man but upon his head was the head of a fish with gaping mouth and draping downward were the back of the fish, complete with scales and tail. The Sumerians called him EA and like Oannes, he was half fish and half man. He was called the Great Fish of Heaven. The Philistines called him ‘DAGON, the fish-god that is also mentioned in the Bible.---OANNES; part II, Vladimir Pakhomov taken from a history of Mesopotamia Written in the 3rd Century B.C. by Berossus; A Babylonian Priest.

Dagon Fish Mitre Hat Worn by Babylonian Priests

The priests of Dagon wore the same mitre hat that was worn by “Cybele.” It looked like the open mouth of a fish propped upon the priest’s head.

“He was half fish and half man. He was called the great fish of heaven. The Philistines called him ‘DAGON,’ the fish-god that is also mentioned in the Bible.”----OANNES; part II Vladimir Pakhomov taken from a history of Mesopotamia Written in the 3rd Century BC by Berossus; A Babylonian Priest.

DAGON is mentioned in the Bible in at least 8 places:

Joshua 19:27
Judges 16:23
1st Samuel 5:2,3,4,5,7
1st Chronicles 10:10

“The two-horned mitre, which the pope wears, when he sits on the high altar at Rome and receives the adoration of the Cardinals, is the very mitre worn by the priests of Dagon, the fish-god of the Philistines and Babylonians.”--- The Two Babylons ; Alexander Hislop; pg. 215

Why do the popes wear a “mitre” hat? The fact is, that the origin of the hat can be traced to an ancient Babylonian fish-god named Dagon. Pictured to the right is a German Christmas card depicting Santa Claus wearing this Dagon fish-hat just like the pope. 

His “alter-ego” is the demon Krampus who torments children who misbehave all year long. See my other article entitled: “Santa Claus or Satan Claws?”

“...there are strong evidences that Dagon was Nimrod.... All scholars agree that the name and worship of Dagon were imported from Babylonia.”---- The Two Babylons, Hislop, pg. 215

“In their veneration and worship of Dagon, the high priest of paganism would actually put on a garment that had been created from a huge fish! The head of the fish formed a mitre above that of the old man, while its scaly, fan-like tail fell as a cloak behind, leaving the human limbs and feet exposed.”---- Babylon and Nineveh, Austen Henry Layard, pg. 343.

“The most prominent form of worship in Babylon was dedicated to Dagon, later known as Ichthys, or the fish. In Chaldean times, the head of the church was the representative of Dagon, he was considered to be infallible, and was addressed as ‘Your Holiness.’ Nations subdued by Babylon had to kiss the ring and slipper of the Babylonian god-king. The same powers and the same titles are claimed to this day by the Dalai Lama of Buddhism, and the pope. Moreover, the vestments of paganism, the fish mitre and robes of the priests of Dagon are worn by the Catholic bishops, cardinals and popes.”----The Wine of Babylon; pg. 9

 “One need only look at Christianity to see...the fish tradition! It’s under everyone’s nose! The real Priests of Dagon of old wore a mitre head dress and the Catholic religion uses this same design on their papal headdress!”----SIRIUS THE FISH TRADITION

According to Egyptian mythology, when the judges found Osiris [Nimrod] guilty of corrupting the religion of Adam and cut up his body, they threw the parts into the Nile. It was said that a fish ate one of these chunks and became transformed. Later, Isis [Semiramis] was fishing along the river bank when she fished up a half-man, half-fish. This sea creature was Dagon, the reincarnated Nimrod. And Dagon is the representation of Nimrod (of ancient Babylon) resurrecting out of the ocean depths as a half-man, half-fish. Dagon is the diminutive of dag, and signifies... fish...The Babylonians believed that a being, part man and part fish, emerged from the Erythraean Sea, and appeared in Babylonia in the early days of its history Representations of this fish-god have been found among the sculptures of Nineveh. The Philistine Dagon was of a similar character.---- Manners and Customs of the Bible; by James Freeman.

And this also explains the symbol for Christianity, the fish - the “Ichthys” which is Dagon.

Definition – “Ichthyic” – “of, pertaining to, or characteristic of fishes; the fish world in all its orders.”---- Oxford English Dictionary (C. E.)

The Doctrine of the Nicolaitanes

In his Revelation to the Seven Assemblies in Asia Minor, our Messiah specifically expressed that this doctrine is something he hates:

Chazown (Revelation) 2:6 But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.

Chazown (Revelation) 2:15 So have you also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.

What exactly is this doctrine that our Messiah hates? Well the root of this word “Nicolaitanes,stems from two different words:

Nicos = to dominate the people
Laity = the lay people who are not in leadership in the church

Hence, this doctrine places other human leaders in the place of Messiah or Elohiym (God) in the life of the believer. What this means is that popes, bishops, pastors, and priests are put on a pedestal where they do not belong and the people are taught to put their trust in them for their salvation instead of Messiah himself. 

This doctrine teaches that people should not attempt to interpret scripture through the leading of the Holy Spirit; instead, people are encouraged to rely on “Church Fathers” to interpret scripture, thus aiding them in their path to eternal life. Our Messiah warned us not to call any church leader on earth “father.” He also taught us that it is unwise to rely on human wisdom, for the Spirit of Yah dwells in us that he might teach us all things.

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 23:9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

Our Messiah Yahuwshuwa taught us that the Ruwach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) is assigned to teach us, and that we have no need to be taught false doctrines that originate from humans:

1st Yahuwchanon (John) 2:27 But the anointing which you have received of him abides in you, and you need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teaches you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it has taught you, you shall abide in him. 

The role of the papacy is to “dominate” the people with fear, causing them to rely solely on the popes. They boldly proclaim that each pope holds the office of the “Visible image of Jesus Christ on earth,” as thus says Rome!

Santa (which means holy in Latin) is meant to represent the pope or the bishop of Rome who is called “The Holy Father.” 

It is no accident that Santa dresses in a costume very similar to what the popes of Rome wear. Pictured to the left is an illustration of Santa & Pope (side-by-side). 

In many Christmas cards, the Santa “alter ego,” is Krampus, the horned god or “Nimrod.” 

Santa Claus is also called “Father Christmas” and the Latin word for father is “pappas” where we get the word “pope!”

Nimrod & Lucifer

Ever since the heavenly rebellion, the arch-angel Heylel (Lucifer in Latin) decreed that he would become as “The most high.” He desired to ascend above the heavens, and exalt his throne there. Heylel’s descent as a fallen angel is described in Ezekiel 28 & Isaiah 14. 

In both of these accounts, they seem to be describing the King of Babylon (Nimrod) and the Prince of Tyre. But even though in these two prophecies, an earthly king is being described, we know from reading Daniel 10, that for every “ground prince” there is a ruling demon prince (a principality) or a fallen angel. 
Hence, the fallen one spoken of in Isaiah 14 & Ezekiel 28, is indeed Satan, who also possessed Nimrod, and the Prince of Tyrus of Ezekiel 28.

Let’s examine these two prophecies in the Authorized King James Version. I have updated the archaic words, and restored the sacred names in the KJV verses below: 

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 14:

13 For you have said in your heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of Elohiym: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 

14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

Yechezqel (Ezekiel )28: 

1 The word of YHWH came again unto me, saying, 

2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus says YHWH Elohiym; Because your heart is lifted up, and you have said, I am an ElohiymI sit in the seat of Elohiym, in the midst of the seas; yet you are a man, and not Elohiym, though you set your heart as the heart of Elohiym:

It is perplexing to some, but you will note here in Ezekiel 28:12-15 that the Prince of Tyrus was seen in the Garden of Eden:

12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus says YHWH Elohiym; You seal up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. 

13 You have been in Eden the garden of Elohiym; every precious stone was your covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of your tabrets and of your pipes was prepared in you in the day that you were created. 

14 You are the anointed cherub that covers; and I have set you so: you were upon the holy mountain of Elohiym you have walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. 

15 You were perfect in your ways from the day that you were created, till iniquity was found in you.

How is it possible for the Prince of Tyrus to have been in the Garden of Eden? It’s obvious that the Prince of Tyrus and the Prince of Babylon were both possessed by Satan! 

Therefore, we can see how this prophecy in Isaiah 14 is about Satan, as well as Nimrod, whose body was being used as a “host” to carry out the evil schemes of the kingdom of darkness. The Latin name Lucifer is just a name that means “light bringer. 

The Hebrew term “Heylel Ben Shachar” means “son of the morning” which indicates that he was just a “son” (a created being) and that the Messiah (the morning star) created him. 
The Greek Septuagint inaccurately translates this as “morning star” insinuating that it was Yahuwshuwa who fell from heaven (the bright and morning star in Revelation 22:16. 

The Greek Septuagint translates this as if it says “boqer kokab” (morning star) in Hebrew but it does not say this. Many people get confused over this verse and they begin to question the identity of our Messiah. The Septuagint did not go into print until the 2nd Century A.D. (contrary to popular belief). The Vatican has propagated a lie (in order to defend the Catholic Bible’s legitimacy). Thus, they influence all scholars in their Jesuit propaganda to believe that the Septuagint pre-dates our Messiah. 

However, this is a lie. The Septuagint only goes back to 2nd Century Gnosticism. Here is evidence based on a letter from a man named Aristeas, revealing that the historic events mentioned in this letter did not happen until the 2nd Century. At this link, you will see evidence proving that the Septuagint is a Gnostic hoax meant to discredit the deity of our Messiah:

In the 4th Century, the Roman Emperor Constantine hired Eusebeus (a bishop of Caesarea) to make 50 Bibles for him in Latin Vulgate and instead of using the original Hebrew Tanakh (Old Testament), he used the Greek Septuagint which was actually transcribed by Clement of Alexandria & Origen who were both Gnostics. 

They did not believe that Yahuwshuwa is YaHuWaH manifested in the flesh, therefore, they removed all verses from the Hebrew Bible,  that supported the deity of Messiah. The name Lucifer (although it was added into the text by the English translators), is the Latin translation for the Hebrew name Heylel which means “light bringer.”

The Apostle Sha’uwl (Paul) described Satan as one who is able to  transform himself as “An angel of light” (2nd Corinthians 11:14).

The brightest star in our solar system is the sun which is why Malachi’s prophecy calls the true Messiah “The sun of righteousness.” Satan wants to be the brightest star (the sun) or “The morning star” and so he has tricked people into sun-god worship. 

They worship the created object of the sun, instead of the one who created the sun (Messiah). We know that Satan was like one of the stars before his fall because Messiah told us this:

Luqas (Luke) 10:18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

Now we can begin to understand how Satan has been able to manifest himself through many human agents such as Nimrod, (the King of Babylon), and the Prince of Tyrus. Throughout history, these human vessels continue to display the same characteristics, (having the number 666 as part of their name), and their birthdays are on December 25th.

Why Does Satan Like December 25th for the Birth of Messiah?

Ever since the Tower of Babel, beginning with Nimrod and his supposed “reincarnated” son Tammuz (Ezekiel 8:14), there have been many pagan false Messiahs as we have already seen. 

Each of these characters is a fallen angel who took on the identity of “ascended masters” who were supposedly reincarnations of the “Universal Christ” for all religions. 

In essence, this is “Gnosticism”---the false doctrine which teaches that “Yahuwshuwa the Messiah of Yisra’el did not come in the flesh.” Pictured above is the same god that was worshiped by Nimrod in the days of the “Tower of Babel.” He was known as “Moloch,” but in Freemasonry, he is called “Baphomet.” He is none other than Satan, the “horned god” who is half-human with the head of a goat. 

His astrological sign is “Capricorn” the goat beginning on the Zodiac Cycle from December 22nd through January 21st. Back in 1981, before I was “born-again,” I had dabbled in the Zodiac and I found a book at the occult bookstore entitled “Jesus Was a Capricorn.” I can remember thinking to myself “well of course, he is a Capricorn---he was born on December 25th!”

Even Kris Kristofferson had written a song entitled “Jesus Was a Capricorn” back in 1972 which became very popular. You see Satan wants us to believe that Yahuwshuwa (Jesus) was born on December 25th because he wants us to believe that “Jesus was a reincarnation of Lucifer.” In other words, Satan wants to be the  Messiah so that he can be worshiped! 

Satan Wants to be the Crucified & Resurrected Messiah

How will he finally pull it off? How will Satan manage to deceive the entire world into worshiping him as the Messiah? Well, he has already done it in more subtle ways than most have realized, and he is well on his way to accomplishing this. 

He has already deceived the masses into believing that the real Messiah of the Bible was born on December 25th. Even those who know he was not born on this date, (yet they continue to celebrate his birth on this day), are still deceived, because they are willing to embrace a lie, for the sake of keeping human traditions.

They say things like: “I know that Jesus wasn’t really born on December 25th, but I celebrate his birth on December 25th because the rest of the world is doing it…and besides, I celebrate his birth everyday.” 

This rationale sounds logical at first, but once you realize that Satan has an agenda to seat his False Messiah---the Antichrist in the Temple of Elohiym in Jerusalem, you will begin to connect all the dots as to where this is leading to. Why has Satan been so busy for the last 4,000 years promoting December 25th as his grande finale?

Historical Antichrists Enforce Worship on December 25th

To fully understand the meaning behind the Abomination of Desolation, we must look back at history, to see previous fulfillments of it. 
The first fulfillment of the Abomination of Desolation, is when the Greek Antiochus Epiphanes IV, desolated the second Jerusalem Temple, and did away with the daily sacrifice on Kislev 25, 167 B.C. This date happened to coincide with the Julian Calendar date of December 25th. Antiochus also set up an image of Zeus, on a horn or wing of the altar, and offered up swine sacrifices, thus defiling the Temple. 

The second fulfillment was when the troops of the Roman General Titus desolated the second Temple. Just as Antiochus had done, the Romans did away with the daily sacrifices on the 9th of Av in 70 A.D. This time, they erected an image of Jupiter, which is the Roman name for Zeus. Once again, this is the same deity whose alleged reincarnation (rebirth) is on December 25th. They also erected an image of Nero, who claimed to be a reincarnation of Jupiter. The Romans Eagle standards were also placed there at the wing of the altar.

Luke 21:20 And when you shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is near.

“Wheresoever the carcass is, (the temple destroyed), there will the eagles be gathered.”

The carcass is not only speaking about the remains of human bodies, but also of the Temple which would lie desolated like a carcass. The “eagles” spoken of in this passage, was a symbolic term for the Romans setting up their eagle standards in the Temple (Matthew 24:28).

Will there be a final man of sin (who makes an image to the beast) on December 25th? We have been shown several precursors from the past, that point to the idea that December 25th is an important day of worship unto Satan. The Apostle Sha’uwl (Paul) prophesied about the future man of sin, and he bears the same characteristics of the Antichrists of the past:

2nd Tasloniqiym (Thessalonians) 2:

1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Master Yahuwshuwa Mashiyach (Messiah), and by our gathering together unto him,

2 That you be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Mashiyach (Messiah) is at hand.

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called Elohiym, or that is worshiped, so that he as Elohiym sits in the temple of Elohiym, showing himself that he is Elohiym.

5 Remember you not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

6 And now you know what withholds that he might be revealed in his time.

7 For the mystery of iniquity does already work: only he who now lets will let, until he be taken out of the way.

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom YHWH shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders.
