Is Santa really Satan?
December 15, 2016
LET ME BEGIN THIS ARTICLE BY HITTING A DIRECT SHOT ACROSS THE BOW OF WHAT IS WRONG, FROM THE BIBLE’S PERSPECTIVE, WITH THE IDEA OF CHRISTIANS CELEBRATING CHRISTMAS AS IT HAS COME TO BE KNOWN IN AMERICA. IN A WORD OR TWO, IT IS SANTA CLAUS, THE GREAT COUNTERFEIT OF SATAN.
“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” Luke 2:11-14 (KJV)
Here are a series of points based on Scripture, why Santa Claus is a satanic creation and something that no bible believer should have anything to do with. Please take a moment and read what is listed there. If you are a teachable believer whose heart and mind are open to follow what the Lord has declared to be true, then you will find it to be a timely and necessary eye-opener.
The modern-day Santa Claus is an American version of Saint Nicholas, a fourth century Roman Catholic bishop from Asia Minor who was noted for his good deeds and gift giving. This tradition first spread throughout Europe, and then found its way to America by the early Dutch settlers. Since God’s word warns us to BEWARE of tradition (Col. 2:8), we shouldn’t be surprised to find the Devil right in the middle of the world’s most celebrated holiday. Lucifer’s desire has always been to dethrone God and exalt himself (Isa. 14:12-15). He desires worship (Luke 4:7; II Ths. 2:3-4).
PERHAPS YOU’VE NEVER THOUGHT OF IT, BUT PLEASE NOTE HOW SATAN ROBS THE LORD JESUS CHRIST OF HIS GLORY BY SPREADING THE SANTA CLAUS TRADITION:
- SANTA IS ETERNAL: Santa is presented as someone who was always there and will always be there. That is not a human attribute.
- JESUS CHRIST IS ETERNAL: “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:8 (KJV)
- SANTA LIVES IN THE NORTH: Tradition holds that Santa Claus lives at the North Pole, a place ABOVE the rest of us.
- JESUS CHRIST LIVES IN THE NORTH: “Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.” Psalm 48:2 (KJV)
- SANTA WEARS RED CLOTHING: Santa wears a red suit mixed with white, Jesus wears white mixed with red.
- JESUS CHRIST WEARS RED CLOTHING: “And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.” Revelation 19:13 (KJV)
- SANTA HAS WHITE HAIR: Santa is always pictured as an old man with white hair like wool.
- JESUS CHRIST HAS WHITE HAIR: “His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;” Revelation 1:14 (KJV)
- SANTA FLIES AROUND GIVING GIFTS: Santa has the ability to defy the laws of gravity and fly around giving gifts to people.
- JESUS CHRIST ASCENDED AND GAVE GIFTS UNTO MEN: “But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.” Ephesians 4:7-8 (KJV)
- SANTA HAS SPIRIT HELPERS CALLED ELVES: Webster, 1828: “ELF…a spirit, the night-mar; a ghost, hag, witch”
- JESUS CHRIST HAS SPIRIT HELPERS CALLED ANGELS: “Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.” Matthew 4:11 (KJV)
