This is the awkward time of year for Messianic believers.  Many of us have opted out of Christmas, something our families and friends do not understand.  It is inconceivable that anyone who professes faith in Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) would not celebrate Christmas.  It is inconceivable even though December 25th is most definitely not the day of Yeshua’s birth, and even though the customs observed in churches and homes have their origins in decidedly un-Christian pagan celebrations.  Our protestations of allegiance to Yeshua seem to fall on deaf ears.  All that our loved ones seem to understand is that we have embraced Judaism because we have turned our backs on Christmas and started celebrating the “Jewish” feasts.  This is so no matter how many times we try to explain that we are not Jewish, that the Feasts of the Lord are all about Yeshua, and that…

      Bottom-line: Somebody will have to go through some pain. I’d rather it be me than my children or farther down the line… ie, let’s get it over with!

      You also make a great point! “It’s one thing to not have revelation. It’s quite another to see the truth and choose to ignore it.”
