I had a dream Joseph. I don't understand it, not really, but I think it was about a birthday celebration for our Son. I think that was what it was all about. The people had been preparing for it for about six weeks. They had decorated the house and bought new clothes. They'd gone shopping many times and bought elaborate gifts. It was peculiar, though, because the presents weren't for our Son. They wrapped them in beautiful paper and tied them with lovely bows and stacked them under a tree. Yes, a tree, Joseph, right in their house. They'd decorated the tree also. The branches were full of glowing balls and sparkling ornaments. There was a figure on the top of the tree. It looked like an angel might look. Oh, it was beautiful. Everyone was laughing and happy. They were all excited about the gifts. They gave the gifts to each other Joseph, not to our Son. I don't think they even knew him. They never mentioned his name. Doesn't it seem odd for people to go to all that trouble to celebrate someone's birthday if they don't know him. I had the strangest feeling that if our Son had gone to this celebration He would have been intruding. Everything was so beautiful, Joseph, and everyone so full of cheer, but it made me want to cry. How sad for Jesus, not to be wanted at his own birthday celebration.
I'm glad it was only a dream. How terrible, Joseph, if it had been real."
A Few Comments by Danny Bunn
Even though Christmas time is a pagan holiday that the whore of Babylon, the Roman Catholic Church, gave us; this little story makes some good points. It has some really bad points too within the story. Mary said, "our Son". In reality, Jesus was the Son of God, he called Mary woman when he walked this planet. Mary would have been more like a surrogate mother to Jesus, he was supernaturally conceived in her womb by the Holy Ghost. He didn't need Mary's egg or Joseph's sperm.
Regarding the Christmas tree please read Jeremiah 10:1-5 which says, 1 Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel: 2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. 3 For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. 4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. 5 They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.
I ask Christians all the time and never get any real answer, to speak of. If you really believe it is Jesus' birthday then why do you say "Merry Christmas? Nobody says on my birthday, "Merry Bunnmas". I also tell them that the shepherds were not dreaming of a white Christmas, they were out in the field with their sheep and I can guarantee you it was not cold. I have an astronomer friend who says by the bible, the KJV, and the stars Jesus Christ was born on Sept 1 of 1BC. The shepherds would easily be out with their sheep in that month. The Roman Catholic Church took many things from the pagans and this holiday was just one of them that they stole, so to speak, and handed it down to the Christians. We do not need it.
Here are a few articles that I wrote on this holiday, check them out.
