The reading of this book explains how the Christmas tree, and the Christmas holiday were NEVER instituted by God. The tree along with some other traditions were originally PAGAN tools and pagan ceremonies used to worship other gods. We Christians borrowed these tools and traditions and put Christ’s name on them... no harm done? Right? This bible study reveals in scripture, God’s COMMAND not get caught up in these practices AND most of all, do not BORROW these traditions and put his Holy name on them – doing so is an abomination to him.
Because “Christmas traditions” have such a strong appeal and influence, CHRISTIANS CANNOT SEE what is right in front of them – Christmas was never created by God… it came from either man or Satan. We Christians are blinded by the exciting appeal we were born into.
The book cover MUST reflect this concept of not seeing what is right in front of us (Christmas is not OF GOD) through incorporating as many of the following as aesthetically possible:
IMPORTANT!! this photo (not painting or drawing) cannot look staged. it must look as if we are peeking in on, and taking a secret snapshot of a family living room. Nothing set up on purpose directly poised at the camera but we can look around the room and discover things. ( I am about to give you 13 suggested items to play with. ONLY use what cannot be detected after you added it to the picture. i.e. it should look as if it was originally in the original picture!)
1. When people hold this book in the store, they must instantly feel warm, cozy, and comfortable enough to buy the book because it makes them think of their own Christmas morning memories. At first glance… and second… and third too, the design must remind people of the warmth of Christmas Morning they are accustomed to. It must instantly make them feel comfortable to draw the book in, hold it and reminisce of their own cherished Christmas morning memories.
2. SUBLIMINAL: the tree should have a satanic star (upside down star?) implying its origin... atop the tree but shining with a glow that looks beautifully Christian for the tree, but the bright glow and rays helps hide the true satanic pentagram figure. this should not stand out or draw attention, just look normal
3. SUBLIMINAL: atop the tree you could also consider an angel-like figure glowing, but is actually a male devil figure, maybe has horns or a tail easily seen with a focused closer look. this should not stand out or draw attention, just look normal
(see 2 Corinthians 11:14)
4. Ridiculously excessive gifts under the tree? i.e.
a. “Suzie” has three iphone models to choose from – from Santa
b. Tommy has a $1,000 gift card to McDonalds or Subway
c. Johnny has car keys for exotic expensive sports car
d. Be creative and try to make them timeless through years…
5. Plate of milk & cookies set upon the family bible. bible is closed to imply it is rarely opened or read – spilled milk on the bible would represent lack of honor to God's word and would be a great touch
6. Stockings stuffed to the point of ripping
7. Stockings so heavy, one has fallen (maybe because of gold bullion bars inside??)
8. Letter to Santa left out says, “Dear Satna” (purposefully misspelled this way, and in kids handwriting) "please bring me more than Sally!" be creative - imply greediness
9. Credit card statements in waste basket maxed-out!
10. Photo of Santa (see example photos uploaded) propped up somewhere. Santa should look normal when looking at cover... but ONLY a purposeful closer examination will reveal a devil’s tail and tiny red horns coming out of the red cloth on his jolly cap. Don't make this obvious at first few looks... only barely seen if looking very close!
11. Candy canes on the tree,
12. two wooden idols (about 1-1.5 ft. tall in size representation) of Baal and Asherah on the fireplace mantle – one on each side (see example images) Don't let these stand out... they are there but somewhat unnoticed at first.
13. An empty toy manger scene set up somewhere? – but no baby, no people, empty!
Please run with the ideas pictorially that Christians have failed to ask God, “What do you want for Christmas?” and have in turn, created a holiday that makes us feel good, not what honors God the way he asked. This holiday is conditioning us to be increasingly self-serving and self-focused, and we can’t even see it though it’s right in front of our eyes… exactly what Satan wants!
