When Ancient Israel worshiped the sun, God called it an ABOMINATION. Now we have pagans (under the guise of Christianity) equating Messiah Yeshua with the sun. Actually they are equating the paganized "Jesus" to the sun. This is the very same paganism that became roman catholocism - and the same paganism when Aaron made the golden calf during the Exodus - making an idol to worship and calling the idol 'God'.
False prophet Tony Ellsworth is a 'prophet of ba-al' and God is against the false prophets of ba-al. He is even brazen enough to claim "Jesus" celebrated the winter solstice ---- if his "Jesus" celebrated the winter solstice, then it is a pagan demon named "jesus" and not Messiah Yeshua. NOWHERE in the bible does it even hint that Messiah Yeshua observed ANY pagan holiday.

The Northern Cross
Could there be a defining marker, in the season that is winter, which would point to Jesus? If you have followed some of my articles which are pointing to a hopeful December Rapture watch, then you have already read about some of the markers. One is the sun itself. The sun is the center of our solar system. We need its light to sustain our lives. The sun is a perfect model of the “Son,” which is Jesus Christ, our only salvation.
The Apostle Paul says this:
Romans 1:20 "For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities - His eternal power and divine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse."
Our solar system has many planets, moons and other objects such as asteroids. Even as such, all of them could be contained within the sun 600 times over. Here is a short video demonstrating the enormous size of our sun (and beyond): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BS88G5WBcfQ
Paul, who was both a Roman citizen and also a Jew, mad a very bold statement “no excuse” since the beginning of man. Paul himself saw a very great light that was “The Son,” which led to his conversion to Christ Jesus. He said this in regards to light and darkness:
1 Thessalonians 5:5 You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.
2 Corinthians 4:5-6 For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake. For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.
Yet each year there comes a day when the Sun seemingly dies. It seems as if darkness has won, and death will come to us all. The day is Winter Solstice, which occurs on December 21st this year. Solstice means “sun stand still.” Yet after this, a resurrection occurs, and the light of day begins to grow again.
Yes Paul, God’s power, and diving nature are clearly seen. Each day we see this as well. We know this through the saying “it’s always darkest before the dawn…”
Do we choose to ignore this great sign God has given us? There is a great Christian holiday on this day. It recognizes God coming to save us – Immanuel, “God with us!!!”
Oh, but the pagans celebrate this day as well. I understand, and I believe Jesus did too, for He said:
Matthew 5:45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good…
