The word santa means holy in latin and in spanish, however the word of God warns us that none is holy.
Isaiah 14:12-14- How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations. For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
This is what satan had said so let us examine if he has achieved this; the scripture clearly states that we must call no man father on earth. However, many today call santa claus father and even teaches their children to believe on him.
Matthew 23:9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven
Revelation 1:14- His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire.
In the above scripture, if we are to examine this description, we will see that santa has taken on that same description as we know that his head is as white as snow.
Isaiah 63:2- Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel
Who is it that cometh red in apparel? The answer is Jesus.
Santa claus also comes in garment of red, this is simply because he is trying to be like Jesus since he had said, “I will be like the most High”.
Mark 6:3- Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James.
This scripture shows very well that Jesus was a carpenter. However, we can see clearly that from the beginning santa clause identifies himself as a carpenter that makes wooden toys for children.
Ezekiel 8:14-Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the Lord’s house which was toward the north;
This scripture is saying that the Lord house was towards the north.
I wonder why santa claus house has to be in the north pole.
Deuteronomy 33:26- There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun, who rideth upon the heaven in thy help, and in his excellency on the sky.
Santa claims to ride on his sleigh in the sky along with his reindeer in the flashes.
Zechariah 2:6- Ho, ho, come forth, and flee from the land of the north, saith the Lord
Santa also says, “ho, ho,” this is not a coincidence, he is trying to be like the Lord.
Revelation 12:9- And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
We all know santa runs the business with his elves which takes order from him. Basically, satan and his demons but of course it would be horrible to say santa and his demons, so the elves (demons) are there as cute little creatures in disguise.
Psalm 102:24- thy years are throughout all generations. This verse refers to God Almighty.
We also know that santa is said to live from generation to generation.
Proverbs 1:23- I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
It is no surprise that santa also spread the ‘spirit of christmas’. In some christmas movies we will hear them talking about the spirit of christmas. In some movies you will even see something like glitters supposedly to be the spirit of christmas descending upon people. However, these are demons.
Psalm 34:11- Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
As adults and parents, it is our duty to teach our children the fear of the Lord but instead most people teach their children the fear of santa claus, telling them that if they are not well behaved santa won’t bring them a gift.
There is a song that says:
Santa Claus Is Coming to Town
You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
He’s making a list,
And checking it twice,
Gonna find out
Who’s naughty and nice.
Santa Claus is coming to town
He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
God alone is omnipresent and omniscient; he reads the heart like an open book and he knows if we are doing the right thing. The lines of this song refer to the book of records that the angels keep. Satan is trying to be like GOD. When we tell our children these things, we are putting the fear of santa in their lives instead of Jesus Christ. We are telling them santa have power as God to see us when we sleep and whatever we do. This is far from the truth, also we must remember that lying lips are an abomination to the Lord. Stop lying to children, teach them the fear of the Lord and not santa.
Matthew 25:31- then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: this refers to JESUS CHRIST.
We all know that santa clause also sit upon his throne.
Mark 10:13-14- And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and JESUS said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not.
John 10:42- And many believed on him there.
As many that believe on Jesus, so it is today many believe on santa claus as parents will dress like santa and do anything for their toddlers to believe that santa is real. Some will even go to the extent of going down the chimney just as how they say santa would.
Titus 2:13-14- Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
Many will sit up looking out for santa claus while others will say they are listening for the jingling of the bells on the reindeers.
Many are deceived and after they realize that they are deceived, they continue telling their kids these hideous lies of santa claus. If you are a Christian and keep bringing santa into your home, please be aware that you are inviting the devil into your home. Behind that cute little teddy bear/ statue of santa clause lies a demon and this is where many people open doors in their homes for the devil to operate but they are clueless as to what is happening to them.
Hosea 4:6- My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
