Usually this time of the year, you’ll see post from me that are very shallow in meaning…. Not very deep. From time to time, I’ll quote Jeremiah 10:1–4, in hopes of causing those who put up a Christmas tree see just how demonic and pagan it is to do so. Or, I might show how the same letters in Santa are used for the name Satan. Or, I might explain some of the other sexual worship wrapped up in Christmas ties in with the tree, round bulbs, missile toe, etc.

These shallow reminders are designed to cause people to think and research further, but in this article, I’m going just a little deeper. This teaching will be directed at people who actually don’t keep Christmas, having come out, partially, of the pagan season of Christmas. these same people, in great self righteousness, are still yet deceived, being knee deep in the same web of deception and simply do not know it.

In the picture below we see a biblical depiction of The Saturnalia of the golden calf event of Exodus 32, on the left and a modern Saturnalia of the pagan day of Christmas, on the right.

The root word of Saturnalia is Saturn which is a direct root of the word Satyr in Hebrew text of scripture. So, who or what is Satyr? And what is deepest form of worship concerning Satyr being done today, by the very ones condemning Christmas as pagan?

Satyr has many names in scripture, down through time. Here are a few…..

Goat Demon, Moloch, Milcom, RemPHAN, and anciently he is known as Khronos and/or Saturn.

Look closely at the word Remphan.

The suffix is PHAN, known in Greek and Roman Mythology as Pan, the half goat, half man, or fawn, who is best known for his sexual desires manifested usually with an erection of the male member. The goat demon aspect is spoken of directly in The Books of Moses, as YoHeWaH tells of a time when Israel will no longer desire to carry forward their tendencies to worship in this way, stating the following:

“So they shall no more sacrifice their sacrifices to goat demons (Satyr), after whom they whore. This shall be a statute forever for them throughout their generations.” Leviticus 17:7

So, what does the goat demon have to do with the golden calf event of Exodus 32, pictured above? Well, there are major clues to answer that question much later in Israel’s history, at the time just after King Solomon, stretching into the time of Christ and His newly founded church:

“He (King Jeroboam) set up priests of his own for the high places, for the Satyrs and for the calf idols which he had made.” 2 Chronicles 11:15

The context of 2 Chronicles, in the 10th century BC, is where Jeroboam established a priesthood from the northern house of Israel, apart from that of the tribe of Levi which was loyal to the southern house of Judah. This act, later called “The Sin of Jeroboam”, changed the religion of Israel from The Covenant Law of Moses to the worship of the god Satyr, who’s idol was the calf. The exact same thing Israel did in Exodus 32.

You have to understand, with the exception of YoHeWaH, the Mighty One of Israel, all other Gods had idols attached to them….. Physical manifestations to which the people could relate to in their worship. The Pagan God was Satyr and his physical representation to the people was the golden calf.

This tenancy is addressed and greatly condemned, 200 years later via the Prophet Amos. The context is where Jeroboam II, has pulled off the establishment of this pagan form of worship, as YoHeWaH very clearly speaks through Amos to identify it as Satyr worship, by this time in history known as Molech aka Milcom. Notice YoHeWaH’s words here:

“Did you present Me with sacrifices and grain offerings in the wilderness for forty years, O house of Israel? But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun (Fashioned calf) your images, the star Remphan (the image of Pan) your god, which you made to yourselves.” Amos 5:25–26

In the 8th century BC, Israel still held the desire to turn their back on the true Creator YoHeWaH and mold themselves after the worship of one of the two host of heaven (Paganism), Satyr (Moloch)…. The other was Baal, the sun god. YoHeWaH’s word condemns it to captivity in Babylon:

“and I will send you into exile beyond Damascus,” says YoHeWaH, whose name is the God of hosts.” Amos 5:27

It must be noted the above judgment is actually set in the time setting of the end time, a plague of government America enjoys today.

Almost 800 years later the story continues. We find the worship of Israel, via its southern house called Judah, once again hijacked in favor of Satyr worship. The evidence of the above statement is told by Luke, quoting Steven in the Book of Acts:


The context of this passage is when Steven is witnessing against the men of Judah concerning Israel’s worship history. The very last thing Steven tells them before he is stoned to death by the Jews is that they were still slanted in their worship of Moloch (who is Satyr), as he quotes the Prophet Amos. So, what do the Jews do, being cut to the heart, knowing Steven is right…. They kill him, straight away.

So what does all this have to do with Christmas? It doesn’t take too much critical thinking to make the connections between Christmas and The Roman Saturnalia……. And then between The Roman Saturnalia and its origins tied directly to Satyr and The Golden Calf of Exodus 32. Here are four quick reads that help show how these historical markers tie together.…/io_io_io_modern_christmas_vs_roman…/…/Negl…/Idolatry/Satan%27s_Birthday

The worship of Satyr and the events of the Saturnalia are identical. If you would like a much deeper study on the subject and all that goes with it, I recommend “The Two Babylons” by Alexander Hislop.…/The_Two_Babylons-Alexander_Hislop…

So, we can see a tie between Saturnalia and Satyr worship from the Bible, but what is this deeper deception I spoke of earlier, to which people who condemn Christmas are still apart of?

Well, simply put there is a god of the day of the sun…. Baal, the sun god on the Pagan Sunday. And there is a god of the day of Saturn (Satyr)….. Moloch. That day is Saturday.

Notice Zephaniah 1:4–6…..We see in this passage, three groups of people and the context is very clearly the end time or the last days (see verses 2–3), as YHWH prophecies about JerUSAlem, which is America.

“So I will stretch out My hand against Judah And against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem. And I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, And the names of the idolatrous priests along with the priests. And those who bow down on the housetops to the host of heaven, And those who bow down and swear to YHWH and yet swear by Milcom (Moloch), And those who have turned back from following YHWH, And those who have not sought YHWH or inquired of Him.”

The three groups are:

1) Baal worshipers (Sunday Keepers, Modern Day Christians)

2) Pagans (worshiping the host of Heaven, a Papal, Planetary, Pagan week of Sunday through Saturday, working the entire time, never keeping any day holy or set apart).

3) Moloch worshipers (Saturn’s day keepers, Jews, SDA’s, Churches of God, Messianics, Hebrew Roots, etc), who call upon the name of YoHeWaH but also, at the same time hold an allegiance to Moloch via the unbiblical continual seventh day worship. These people, refusing to truly inquire of YoHeWaH by looking any deeper to a deeper form of truth, settling for the shallow truth they are now very much comfortable with, not knowing they are still caught in the web of ancient deception Satan has laid from long ago. A double counterfeit of worship days, both designed to snare Israel in the last days.

I am reminded of what YHWH says in Deuteronomy 12:4:

“You shall not worship YHWH The Almighty with such things.”

The context of Deuteronomy 12 is the distinction between Evergreen tree worship (Grove or Asherah worship) and YoHeWaH’s Feast of Tabernacles. Whether you know it or not, Christmas, along with its evergreen tree idolatry, depicting the false time of Christ’ birth, is a direct counterfeit to The Feast of Tabernacles, which is the true time of Christ’ birth. YHWH’s words in the above quoted text from Covenant Law, tying directly back to Leviticus 17:7 should send shivers up and down a true believer’s spin.

The Golden Calf Event of Exodus 32, Christmas and Saturday worship are sisters of the same pagan concoction, all carrying the same name. Satyr.

May YHWH bless you in your studies and in your understanding.
