Santa Claus or Satan Claws?


Edited and re-formatted by Maria Merola

Pictured here are


Christmas Cards from Germany. This is a demon spirit known in Germany as “Krampus.”
This demon (according to folklore), is supposed to be the evil side-kick of Santa Claus
himself or his ―alter ego.‖ Krampus‘ role is to scare children into being good. All year long
children are taught that if they are ―naughty‖ Krampus would come on Christmas with a
switch and beat their bottoms. But if they were ―nice‖ then Santa Clause would come and
give them toys and treats. The invention of this creature comes from the popular medieval
Christmas plays of the tenth through the sixteenth century. These miracle, moral, mystery
and passion dramas acted out scenes from the scriptures and the liturgy of the Roman
Catholic Church. Combining humor and religion, they flourished during the fifteenth

1
century. It is significant that St. Nicholas was a dominant theme among these plays. Much
of the myth and outlandish miracles of St. Nicholas originated from these dramas. And
much of the bizarre characteristics of Santa were planted in these Christmas plays....‖
Siefker, Phyllis. Santa Claus, Last of the Wild Men: The Origins and Evolution of Saint
Nicholas. Jefferson: McFarland & Company, Inc., 1997, p. 69

One of the bizarre jobs of St. Nick‘s devilish


helper was to ―gleefully drag sinners‖ to Hell! On the eve of December 6th, the myth told
that this bearded, white-haired old ‗saint,‘ clad in a wide mantel, rode through the skies on
a white horse (the rider on a white horse in Revelation 6), together with his slave, the
swarthy Dark Helper. This reluctant helper had to disperse gifts to good people, but much
preferred to threaten them with his broom-like scourge, and, at a sign of his master, would
gleefully drag sinners away to a place of eternal suffering….. Renterghem, Tony van. When
Santa Was a Shaman. St. Paul: Llewellyn Publications, 1995, p. 111 It is also alarming that
Santa‘s popular title, ―Nick,‖ is also a common name for ―the devil.‖

Old Nick: A well-known British name of the Devil. “It seems probable that this name is
derived from the Dutch Nikken, the devil”…..Shepard, Leslie A. Encyclopedia of
Occultism and Parapsychology. New York: Gale Research Inc. 1991, p. 650 Nick, the
devil…..Skeat, Walter W. Concise Dictionary of English Etymology. Ware: Wordsworth
Editions Ltd, 1993, p. 304

Devil: Besides the name Satan, he is also called Beelzebub, Lucifer . . . and in popular or
rustic speech by many familiar terms as Old Nick . . . (Oxford English Dictionary)

Nicholas is one of the most common devil‘s names in German, a name that remains today
when Satan is referred as Old Nick…..Siefker, Phyllis. Santa Claus, Last of the Wild Men:

Another Christmas card is illustrated here from Austria,


just before World War II. The Big Black Horned thing you see is ―Krampus,‖ once again the
demon that comes with Santa bringing a ―bag of Switches‖ for boys and girls that don‘t
behave. He would also kidnap and eat them. This is the origin of "Santa's Little Helper"
which later became the Elves at the North Pole. Every year in Austria they have a big party
for him in December. Notice the children in the bag that he is kidnapping, and the pine
branch from the x-mas tree he is about to beat that couple with, oh, and the goat horns
and hooves, just like Baphomet, the goat demon worshiped in Freemasonry.

The German god ―Ruebezahl‖ is a mixture of ―Krampus‖(the devil) and Santa. In Austria the
strange and frightening creature, Krampus, is usually with St. Nicholas and often in
chains, is dressed in fur with a scary mask and a long red tongue. Krampus carries a
wooden stick or switches to threaten children who misbehave or do not know their lessons.

Pictured here is another Christmas card from Austria &
Germany. The Little girl is praying to the devil and asking for mercy. The creature is the
―alter ego‖ of Santa Claus who would come to punish if the child has not been good all year
long, but he comes as a benevolent jolly old fat man known as ―Santa Clause‖ with toys and
presents if the child has been good. Our Messiah Yahu‘shua (Jesus) taught us not to fear
evil, nor to fear the devil. We are only to fear YHWH who has the power to determine our
eternal destiny:

Luke 12:4-5

4 And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that
have no more that they can do.

5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath
power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

Satan has successfully caused little children to fear him instead of our Creator YHWH:

Come, ye children. . . I will teach you the fear of. . . Santa Claus? (Psalm 34:11)

“...You‟d better watch out, You‟d better not cry You‟d better not pout, I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is comin' to town He's making a list, He's checking it twice He's gonna find out
Who's naughty or nice...”

Children the world over are taught to FEAR Santa. “You‟d better go to bed little
boy,…..Santa is watching.”

4
Millions of fearful children are told, “You‟d better behave, Santa is watching….. You might
not get anything for Christmas.”

It is purely evil for parents to teach their children to fear the devil or Santa Clause. We are
told that YHWH has not given us the spirit of fear:

2nd Timothy 1:7 For Elohim (God) hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of
love, and of a sound mind.

Romans 8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have
received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

We are commanded instead to fear YHWH the Creator of the Universe:

Proverbs 1:7 The fear of YHWH is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom
and instruction.

Psalm 111:10 The fear of YHWH is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding
have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth forever.

More Disgusting X-mas Cards with Krampus aka Satan Claws!

Who wants that thing playing with their kid? Oh wait--- we dress them up like that on
Halloween! And then we put it all over our house, so these kind of things will feel right at
home!

5
A black goat demon----how cute for the kids to play with on a Christmas card! *sarcasm*

6
You will notice that in each of these cards, Santa Claus looks a lot like the Pope carrying
his Papal Staff, and his ―Dagon‖ pagan fish-god hat/miter; and he is with his alter ego,
Satan----how telling!

Dagon, Nimrod & the Papacy

―The great apostate church of the Gospel Age, true to its Babylonian origin, has actually
adopted this fish god in its ritual; for the pope on certain occasion‘s manifests by his
head gear that he is the direct representative of Dagon. As it was an indispensable rule in
all idolatrous religions that the high priest should wear the insignia of the god that he
worshipped, so the sculptures discovered by Layard show that the priests of Dagon were
arrayed in clothing resembling fish. This is probably the ‗strange apparel‘ referred to
in Zephaniah 1:8. Berosus tells us that in the image of Dagon the head of the man
appeared under the head of the fish, while Layard points out that in the case of the priests
―the head of the fish formed a mitre above that of the man, while its scaly, fan-like
tail fell as a cloak behind, leaving the human limbs and feet exposed.‖---(Babylon and
Nineveh, p. 343)

7
―In the ancient legends of the Babylonians there
was ―Oannes‖ called ―Lord of the Waves.‖ He was amphibious, having the torso and head of
a man but upon his head was the head of a fish with gaping mouth and draping downward
were the back of the fish, complete with scales and tail. The Sumerians called him ―EA‖ and
like Oannes - he was half fish and half man. He was called the great Fish of heaven. The
Philistines called him ―DAGON‖, the fish god that is also mentioned in the Bible.‖---
OANNES; part II, Vladimir Pakhomov taken from a history of Mesopotamia Written in the 3rd
Century B.C. by Berossus; A Babylonian Priest

Dagon Fish Mitre Hat Worn by Babylonian Priests

The priests of Dagon wore the same mitre hat that was worn by ―Cybele.‖
It looked like the open mouth of a fish propped upon the priest‘s head.

―He was half fish and half man. He was called the great Fish of heaven. The Philistines
called him ‗DAGON‘, the fish god that is also mentioned in the Bible.‖----OANNES; part II
Vladimir Pakhomov taken from a history of Mesopotamia Written in the 3rd Century BC
by Berossus; A Babylonian Priest

DAGON is mentioned in the Bible in at least 8 places:

Joshua 19:27
Judges 16:23
1st Samuel 5:2,3,4,5,7
1st Chronicles 10:10

―The two-horned mitre, which the Pope wears, when he sits on the high altar at Rome
and receives the adoration of the Cardinals, is the very mitre worn by the priests of Dagon,
8
the fish-god of the Philistines and Babylonians.‖--- The Two Babylons ; Alexander Hislop; p.
215

Why do the Popes wear a ―Mitre‖ hat? The fact is that the origin of the hat can be traced to
an ancient Babylonian fish-god named Dagon.

―...there are strong evidences that Dagon was Nimrod.... All scholars agree that the
name and worship of Dagon were imported from Babylonia.‖---- The Two Babylons,
Hislop, p. 215

―In their veneration and worship of Dagon, the high priest of paganism would actually
put on a garment that had been created from a huge fish! The head of the fish
formed a mitre above that of the old man, while its scaly, fan-like tail fell as a cloak behind,
leaving the human limbs and feet exposed.‖---- Babylon and Nineveh, Austen Henry Layard,
p. 343

―The most prominent form of worship in Babylon was dedicated to Dagon, later known as
Ichthys, or the fish. In Chaldean times, the head of the church was the representative of
Dagon, he was considered to be infallible, and was addressed as ‗Your Holiness‘. Nations
subdued by Babylon had to kiss the ring and slipper of the Babylonian god-king. The same
powers and the same titles are claimed to this day by the Dalai Lama of Buddhism, and
the Pope. Moreover, the vestments of paganism, the fish mitre and robes of the priests
of Dagon are worn by the Catholic bishops, cardinals and popes.‖----The Wine of Babylon;
Pg 9

―One need only look at Christianity to see...the Fish tradition! It‘s under everyone's nose.
The real Priests of Dagon of old wore a mitre head dress and the Catholic religion uses
this same design on their papal headdress!‖----SIRIUS THE FISH TRADITION

According to Egyptian mythology, when the judges found Osiris [Nimrod]


guilty of corrupting the religion of Adam and cut up his body, they threw the parts
into the Nile. It was said that a fish ate one of these chunks and became transformed.
Later, Isis [Semiramis] was fishing along the river bank when she fished up a half-man,
half-fish. This sea creature was Dagon, the reincarnated Nimrod.

And Dagon is the representation of Nimrod (of ancient Babylon) resurrecting out of the
ocean depths as a half-man, half-fish. ―Dagon is the diminutive of dag, and signifies...
fish...The Babylonians believed that a being, part man and part fish, emerged from the
Erythraean Sea, and appeared in Babylonia in the early days of its history Representations
of this fish-god have been found among the sculptures of Nineveh. The Philistine Dagon
was of a similar character.---- Manners and Customs of the Bible; by James Freeman

And this also explains the symbol for Christianity, the fish - the ―Ichthys‖ which is Dagon.

Definition – ―Ichthyic‖ – ―of, pertaining to, or characteristic of fishes; the fish world in all its
orders.‖---- Oxford English Dictionary (C. E.)

9
Fish On Fridays?

The worship of Dagon also affected people‘s eating habits. This may explain the mystery of
why the Catholics abstain from eating fish on all days except Fridays. Whether they realize
it or not, they are practicing the ancient pagan rite of worshipping Dagon.

According to The Catholic Encyclopedia:

―As to the ritual of his worship...we only know from ancient writers that, for religious
reasons, most of the Syrian peoples abstained from eating fish, a practice that
one is naturally inclined to connect with the worship of a fish-god.‖---- The Catholic
Encyclopedia, 1913, Encyclopedia Press, Inc.

The Doctrine of the Nicolaitanes

In his Revelation to the Seven Assemblies in Asia Minor, our Messiah specifically addressed
something called “The Doctrine of the Nicolaitanes,” which is something he hates:

Revelation 2:6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which
I also hate.

Revelation 2:15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes,
which thing I hate.

What exactly is this doctrine that our Messiah hates? Well the root words come from two
words:

Nicos = to dominate the people

Laity = the lay people who are not in leadership in the church

Hence this doctrine places other humans in the place of Messiah or Elohim (God) in the life
of the believer. What this means is that Popes, Bishops, Pastors, and Priests are put on a
pedestal where they do not belong and the people are taught to put their trust in them for
their salvation instead of Messiah himself. This doctrine teaches that people should not
attempt to interpret scripture with the help of the Holy Spirit, but instead they should rely
on ―Church Fathers‖ and leaders to interpret scripture and to aid them in their path to
salvation and eternal life. But our Messiah warned us not to call any church leader on
earth ―father‖:

Matthew 23:9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father,
which is in heaven.

Our Messiah Yahu‘shua (Jesus) taught us that the Holy Spirit is assigned to teach us and
that we have no need to be taught any false doctrine that originates from humans:

10
1st John 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye
need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all
things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

The Role of the Papacy is to ―dominate‖ the people with fear and to make them rely solely
on him as the “visible image of Jesus Christ on earth,” as thus saith Rome!

In all of the above images, Santa (which means holy in Latin) is actually the Pope or Bishop
of Rome who is called “Holy Father” as he is dressed very similar to Santa Claus and
standing with his true ―alter ego‖ Satan or Krampus the horned god or ―Nimrod.‖ Santa
Claus is also called “Father Christmas” and the Latin word for Father is “Pappas” where
we get the word “Pope”!

Pope = Father Christ Mass who performs the Catholic Mass!

The shocking truth is Santa Claus originated from a character identified as the devil or
Satan.

In certain German children‘s games, the Saint Nicholas figure itself is the Dark Helper, a
devil who wants to punish children, but is stopped from doing so by Christ…..Renterghem,
Tony van. When Santa Was a Shaman. St. Paul: Llewellyn Publications, 1995, p. 105

This is a photo of St. Nicholas from whom we get


―Santa Claus.‖ The name Nicholas, in Greek is “Niko-Laus” which means “one who
RULES over the people.” The word “Santa” means “Holy” in Latin and hence we have a

11
name that means “The Holy One Who Rules Over the People.” Instead of the coming
Messiah who reigns, this guy‘s name says that he wants to rule over the people instead.

It is interesting to note also that the Latin language is what is commonly used in
Witchcraft, incantations, spells and in Satanic rituals. It is because Latin is a language that
has its roots in paganism from the start. It is no wonder that Latin is a language that uses
the same letters for Satan in the word ―Holy‖ (Santa). But in Hebrew (the original language
of scripture), the word for ―holy‖ is ―Kodesh‖ which has no resemblance to ―Santa.‖

The bizarre and mutual attributes of


Thor and Santa are no accident. Author Tony Renterghem, concludes his extensive
research into the origin of Santa with the following statement:

―I can only conclude that the original ancestor of our modern Santa Claus is none other
than the mythological Dark Helper-a faint memory of Herne/Pan, the ancient shamanic
nature spirit of the Olde Religion.‖ (Renterghem, Tony “When Santa Was a Shaman.” St.
Paul: Llewellyn Publications, 1995, p. 93)

Note: Herne or Pan is the horned god. It is common knowledge that Pan and Herne are
popular names for Satan. The Satanic Bible lists Pan as one of the Infernal Names of Satan.
(LaVey, Anton Szandor. The Satanic Bible. New York: Avon Books, Inc., 1969 p. 144)

After researching scores of books and material on the origin of Santa Claus, by far, the best
book on this subject is “Santa Claus, Last of the Wild Men": The Origins and Evolution of
Saint Nicholas, authored by the late University of Kansas associate, Phyllis Siefker.”

This is no child‘s book, but a scholarly exploration into the origin of Santa Claus. It is
published by the prestigious McFarland Publishers, a leading publisher of reference and
academic books. This book carries no Christian bias, but is simply a secular, non-Christian
scholastic study. With that in mind, the following analysis by Siefkler is even more
alarming:

12
―The fact is that Santa and Satan are alter egos, brothers; they have the same origin. . . On
the surface, the two figures are polar opposites, but underneath they share the same
parent, and both retain many of the old symbols associated with their ‗father‘ . . . From
these two paths, he arrived at both the warmth of our fireplace and in the flames of hell.‖
(Siefker, Phyllis. Santa Claus, Last of the Wild Men: The Origins and Evolution of Saint
Nicholas. Jefferson: McFarland & Company, Inc., 1997, p. 6)

Christian Mythology says that Santa keeps lists of good and bad children. If you are good
you get a visit from Santa and he leaves toys. However, in turn-of-the-century Europe, if
you were bad you got a visit from KRAMPUS! It was Krampus who gave coal and rocks to
the naughty children. Sometimes, Krampus would beat the bad with switches, and if a
child was especially naughty, he would shackle them in chains, stuff them in a bucket and
throw them into the fiery pits of Hell!

Does anyone find it strange that children will


go to bed every night talking to an invisible man that they believe will swoop down from the
sky on a certain holiday and bring them rewards? But we are told in scripture that the
Messiah will hand out rewards at his second coming:

1st Corinthians 13:

13 Every man‟s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be
revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.

14 If any man‟s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.

15 If any man‟s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet
so as by fire.
13
Krampus, the original version of Santa's
Elf in Austria, would punish wrongdoers instead of Elohim (God). He would bring the
children a ―bag of switches/branches‖ to beat them with. In Ezekiel 8:17 we learn more
about this particular branch. This branch is a reference to the misltoe and also to the
“abominable branch” in Isaiah 14 known as ―The King of Babylon‖ (Nimrod) because he
was ―cut down‖ like a tree as his limbs were severed by Noah‘s son Shem and they were
sent to all the provinces in the land of Shinar…..the book of Jasher; The Two Babylons, by
Alexander Hislop; The Antiquities, Josephus.

Considering Santa you cannot miss his ―alter ego,‖ who has followed him like a dark
shadow since ancient times. There is a devil, called Percht, Bartl, ―KRAMPUS‖ (the Devil),
Knecht Ruprecht, or Rotsohler, accompanying Santa Claus in the European Alps. He shows
the pre-Christian origin of this custom as a daemon trabant. We should mention here also
another figure: Ruebezahl, who is a German mythical, giant-like person, who is a mixture
of Krampus (the Devil) and Santa‖….. Santa‟s Origin; by Sepp Rothwangl

―In Austria a strange and frightening creature, known as Krampus, is usually with St.
Nicholas. This devil figure, often in chains, is dressed in fur with a scary mask and a long
red tongue. Krampus carries a wooden stick or switches to threaten children who
misbehave or do not know their lessons‖……Saint Nicholas Center; Discovering the Truth
About Santa Claus

We often repeat the famous quote of Santa Clause in Christmas songs such as “Ho, Ho,
Ho, who wouldn’t go, Ho, Ho, Ho, who wouldn’t go….” But do we realize what we are
teaching our children to say?

14
“Ho, Ho, Ho” comes from a Roman Requirement that during Saturnalia citizens had to
appear before the temple of Saturn (Baal) and yell, ―Lo, Lo, Lo, Saturn‖ 3 times translated
as, “Praise, Praise, Praise Saturn as god.”

From: The Roman Festivals of the Period of the Republic, an Introduction to the Study of the
Religion of the Romans, W. Warde Fowler [1847 - 1921], Macmillan, 1899.

―There are several well-attested features of the Saturnalia as it was in historical times. On
Dec. 17th there was a public sacrifice at the temple (formerly the era) of Saturn by the
Forum, followed by a public feast, in breaking up from which the feasters shouted „Io
Saturnalia.‟

15
In “The Drama Before Shakespeare - A Sketch”, author Frank Ireson, describes the popular
Miracle Play. Notice the description of the devil as ―shaggy, hairy,‖ etc. (as Santa), and
notice the devil‘s trademark “exclamation on entering was ho, ho, ho!”

Besides allegorical personages, there were two standing characters very prominent in Moral
Plays—the Devil and Vice. The Devil was, no doubt, introduced from the Miracle Plays,
where he had figured so amusingly; he was made as hideous as possible by his mask and
dress, the latter being generally of a shaggy and hairy character, and he was duly provided
with a tail: his ordinary exclamation on entering was, “Ho, ho, ho! what a fellow am I”

---Ireson, Frank. “The Drama Before Shakespeare - A Sketch,” 1920 Siefker also collaborates
the devil‘s trademark ―ho, ho, ho.‖

In these plays, the devil‘s common entry line, known as the ―devil‘s bluster,‖ was ―Ho! Ho!
Ho!‖ …..Siefker, Phyllis. Santa Claus, Last of the Wild Men: The Origins and Evolution of
Saint Nicholas. Jefferson: McFarland & Company, Inc., 1997, p. 69

The devil‘s trademark ―ho, ho, ho‖ was carried over from the early medieval Miracle Plays to
the popular old English play ―Bomelio,‖ as the following lines from the play verify:

“…. I conjure thee, foul spirit, down to hell! Ho, ho, ho! The devil, the devil! A-comes,
a-comes, a-comes upon me…..”

How St. Nicholas became Santa Claus

Nicholas was born in Parara, Turkey in 270 C.E. and later became Bishop of Myra. He died
in 345 C.E. on December 6th. He was not canonized as a saint by the Roman Catholic
Church until the 1800‘s.

Nicholas was among the most senior bishops who convened the Council of Nicaea in 325
C.E. and created the New Testament. The text they produced portrayed Jews as ―the
children of the devil‖ who sentenced Jesus to death.

In 1087, a group of sailors who idolized Nicholas moved his bones from Turkey to a
sanctuary in Bari, Italy. There Nicholas supplanted a female boon-giving deity called The
Grandmother, or Pasqua Epiphania, who used to fill the children's stockings with her
gifts. The Grandmother was ousted from her shrine at Bari, which became the center of the
Nicholas cult. Members of this group gave each other gifts during a pageant they conducted
annually on the anniversary of Nicholas‘ death, December 6.

The Nicholas cult spread north until it was adopted by German and Celtic pagans. These
groups worshipped a pantheon led by Woden –their chief god and the father of Thor,
Balder, and Tiw. Woden had a long, white beard and rode a horse through the heavens one
evening each Autumn. When Nicholas merged with Woden, he shed his Mediterranean
16
appearance, grew a beard, mounted a flying horse, rescheduled his flight for December, and
donned heavy winter clothing.

In a bid for pagan adherents in Northern Europe, the Catholic Church adopted the Nicholas
cult and taught that he did (and they should) distribute gifts on December 25th instead of
December 6th.

Pictured here is Santa Claus shaking hands


with the Pope or Bishop of Rome. These two characters have ―merged‖ into one and the
same persona!

Saint Nicholas, a fourth century Catholic Bishop of Myra in Asia Minor, who gave treats to
children; was canonized by the Roman Catholic Church, as patron saint to sailors,
pawnbrokers and children. Santa Claus or ―Father Christmas‖ is a corruption of the Dutch
―Sant Nikolaas.‖ The red suit comes from the fact that Catholic bishops and cardinals in
Italy wear red. Also, according to tradition, a poor widower of Myra had three daughters, for
whom she could not provide a dowry. On Xmas-Eve, ―Saint Nicholas‖ threw three bags of
gold down the chimney, thereby saving the daughters from having to enter into
prostitution. One bag rolled into a shoe, and the others fell into some stockings that had
been hung to dry by the fire, hence, the beginning of the tradition of the ―Christmas
stocking.‖

But the Santa Claus concept originally came from ancient Egypt. The pagan Egyptian god,
Bes, was a rounded, gnome-like personage who was the patron of little children. Bes was
said to live at the North Pole, working all year-round to produce toys for children who had
been good and obedient to their parents. In Dutch, he was called ―Sinter Klaas.‖ The
custom was brought to America by Dutch settlers. In European countries, Santa Claus was
17
originally a grim personage who traversed the countryside, determined to find out who had
been ―naughty or nice.‖ Those who had been naughty were quickly switched.

Santa Claus is usually associated with snow, reindeer, and the North Pole, which suggests
Scandinavian or Norse traditions of the Yuletide season. In Babylonia, the stag (reindeer)
was a symbol of Nimrod, the mighty hunter. Antlers worn on the head of a noble leader
symbolized his prowess as a hunter, and thereby, influence people to follow him.

Santa is often looked upon as a jolly old man giving gifts to children and keeping the
―magic‖ of Christmas alive, but, the Christmas spirit, is the spirit of lies, the spirit of
deception, the season when the lonely are made to feel unwanted, when people get more
depressed and suicidal, and when the hypocrites are generous for a season, celebrating
their perpetual lie.

Prophecies About Our Messiah Satan Wants to Counterfeit

Who is this that cometh. . . red in thine apparel (Isaiah 63:2)

Who wears boots and a suit of red? Santa wears boots and a suit of red!

“Cap on head, suit that's red,

Special night, beard that's white,

Must be Santa, Must be Santa,

Must be Santa, Santa Clause”

Satan wants to be the Messiah!

The Master Yahu‘shua (Jesus)

Isaiah 63:1-2

Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in
his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty
to save.

Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in
the winefat?

Revelation 19:

11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was
called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name
written, that no man knew, but he himself.

18
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word
of Elohim (God).

Do you get the strangest feeling that someone is trying to ―be like someone else‖?

Isaiah 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

Once again, we see the ―signature‖ Papal staff in his


hand. Is this supposed to be the Resurrected Christ come to reign? St. Nicholas, the Pope,
or ―Santa Claus‖? Who can tell? Or maybe that‘s the point! Notice that the colors he is
wearing are ―scarlet & purple‖ just like the woman who is reading a Beast in Revelation 17.

The Historical ―St. Nicholas‖ who hated Jews wouldn‘t get along with the biblical Jewish
Messiah known as Yahu‘shua (Joshua aka Jesus), who kept the Sabbath, Holy Days, and
Levitical diet. Our Messiah would never want a day in his honor on which Jews were
ritually killed every Dec. 25th, but Saint Nicholas didn‘t mind.

The 151st attendee listed in an A.D. 510 manuscript of attendees of the Council of Niceae
was “Nicolas of Myra of Lycia.” Amazingly, December 25th was established as a
supposedly ―Christian‖ holiday at the Council of Nicea, and so was Easter, and Sunday. If
anyone kept the Holy Days instead, Constantine had them put to death. St. Nicholas was
all in favor of this, and mysteriously, X-mas later honored him. Imagine that. And that the
same time the Roman Saturnalia was on December 25th, and was celebrated often by the
ritual sacrifice of a Jew.

19
St. Nicholas, was a senior bishop at the council of Nicea. He wrote that Jews were ―children
of the devil that killed our Lord Jesus.‖

At the council of Nicea – “Those who openly or secretly keep the Sabbath and follow other
practices in the manner of the Jews are not to be received into communion, nor into prayer,
nor into the church....”

The Council of Laodicea – “It is not permitted to receive festivals which are by Jews, nor to
hold a festival together with them. Christians must not Judaize by resting on the Sabbath,
but must work on that day...but if any be found to be Judaizers let them be anathema from
Christ.”

Constantine wrote, “Let us have nothing in common with the Jews, who are our adversaries.
This irregularity of observing Passover must be corrected, in order that we may no more have
anything in common with the parricides and murderers of our Lord.”

Nimrod the Abominable Branch

“The Branch” was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah foretold of our Messiah, as THE
RIGHTEOUS BRANCH:

Isaiah 11:1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall
grow out of his roots:

This prophecy above is about Yahu‘shua the Messiah (Jesus)--the righteous BRANCH.
Ezekiel spoke of this very same BRANCH:

Zechariah 3:8 Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before
thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH.

You will notice that the Temple Menorah has 7 Branches. The
Menorah is deliberately meant to resemble the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden. The Middle
Branch is the main trunk of the tree represented as our Messiah (the Servant Candle who
lights the others). And the other 6 branches represent mankind for on the 6 th day YHWH
created man.

It is for this reason, that our Messiah said these words:


20
John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches:

But Nimrod was the UNRIGHTEOUS BRANCH:

Isaiah 14:19 But thou art cast out of thy grave like, an abominable branch, and as the
raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the
pit; as a carcass trodden under feet.

Ezekiel 8:17 ....they commit the abominations.....to provoke me to anger: and, lo they put
the branch to their nose.

Why was Nimrod & Tammuz symbolized by an “Abominable Branch”? In the history of
the Babylonian Empire, Shem (Noah‘s son) had Nimrod killed because he and his
mother/wife, Semiramis were offering up babies to Molech on December 25th during the
winter solstice and also in Easter Sunrise services for the ―spring equinox‖ on March 25th.

When Shem and his men found Nimrod, they chopped off his body parts just like limbs to a
tree, and his limbs were sent to various provinces within the land of Shinar. From then on,
Semiramis, (his wife and mother) commanded the Babylonians to memorialize Nimrod by
going into the Forrest to cut down a tree to remember Nimrod who was ―cut down like a
tree.‖

This is why YHWH forbids us to erect a ―Christmas Tree‖ even if it is supposedly in the
honor of ―Jesus‖:

Jeremiah 10:

2 Thus saith YHWH, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs
of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.

21
3 For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the
work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.

4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers,
that it move not.

From that point on, Nimrod or Ba‘al was known as “the god of the tree.”

The Druids and the Celts continued to worship this pagan deity now
called “The Green Man” through orgies in the forest under trees and erecting Christmas
Trees.

Has anything changed today in America? Are we not just as adulterous as backsliding
Israel who played the harlot under every green tree?

Isaiah 57:5 Enflaming yourselves with idols under every green tree, slaying the children
in the valleys under the clifts of the rocks?

Jeremiah 3:6 YHWH said also unto me in the days of Josiah the king, Hast thou seen that
which backsliding Israel hath done? she is gone up upon every high mountain and under
every green tree, and there hath played the harlot.

22
Deuteronomy 12:2 Ye shall utterly destroy all the places, wherein the nations which ye
shall possess served their gods, upon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under
every green tree:

1st Kings 14:23 For they also built them high places, and images, and groves (asherah),
on every high hill, and under every green tree.

2nd Kings 17:10 And they set them up images and groves (asherah) in every high hill,
and under every green tree:

Jeremiah 3:13 Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against YHWH
thy Elohim (God), and hast scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green tree, and
ye have not obeyed my voice, saith YHWH.

23
Notice Nimrod on the left, with a Pine
Tree and Reindeer, and Santa on the right! The Nimrod photo to the left is from a 4,000
year old Babylonian woodcut made by a Babylonian.

And so our Christmas tree and our Yule log have


tremendous meaning, but not a biblical meaning. The Yule log is the dead Nimrod‘s penis,
human ruler of ancient Babylon, who was eventually deified as the sun incarnate, and
hence a god.

24
The Christmas tree is mystical Tammuz, the slain god come to life again….After
Armageddon, Chapter 4,Where do we get our ideas? by John A. Sarkett

Why Are Red & Green Official Christmas Colors?

Santa‘s Suite was originally Green before the Coca-Cola


company came along. The suite is based on the Celtic god/demon called the ―Green Man of
the Woods‖" whose colors were Red and Green, their version of Attis (Tammuz in the
Bible). They got the idea from the Babylonian Tammuz who was an ―evergreen tree‖ the god
who was worshiped on December 25th, hence the ―branches‖ placed to the nose in Ezekiel
8:17.

25
―Pope Gregory...advised Saint
Augustine to allow his converts certain festivals as formerly they had done this in honor of
the devil. Therefore, St. Augustine permitted their usual December celebration under the
new name. From these early pagan ceremonies are derived many of the English holiday
customs that have survived to our day‖……The Evolution of Christmas; Published in 1909

Didn‘t the Apostle Shaul (Paul) warn the Galatians to NOT GO BACK to Superstitions and
Holidays they kept “BEFORE they knew God??”

Galatians 4:

8 Howbeit then, when ye knew not Elohim (God), ye did service unto them which by
nature are no gods.

9 But now, after that ye have known Elohim (God), or rather are known of Elohim
(God), how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire
again to be in bondage?

10 Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years (astrology).

11 I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain.

The name “Santa Claus” & Anagrams

Have you ever noticed how easy it is to transform “Satan” from “Santa”? Just move the
letter ―N‖ to the end. And presto! “Satan” appears. . .

An internet Google search on “Satan Claus” [not Santa Claus – but SATAN Claus] found
over 1,700 hits! Obviously, there are many that tie the two together.

The rearranging of letters (called anagrams) to hide secret names or words has long been
practiced in the occult. The Jewish Encyclopedia writes of the Jewish occult book called the
Kabbala:

The golden age for anagrams began with the Kabbalah. The Platonists had strange notions
as to the influence of anagrammatic virtues, particularly of anagrams evolved from names
of persons. It is not surprising, therefore, that the Kabbalists, like all the Neoplatonists,
pretended to discover occult qualities in proper names and in their anagrams.

http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/

Another name for Satan is Sanat. He also likes to be called “Natas” which is a root word
for the name “Natasha” in Russian this is a word that means ―Christmas.‖

He simply rearranges the letters in his name at will. Who wears a red suit and claims to be
―omnipresent‖ (everywhere at once) and ―omniscient‖ (all-knowing) like God?

The song “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” says: “…he sees you when you’re sleeping;
he knows when you’re awake.”

But this is blasphemy against the one true God of Israel YHWH. Who comes out of a ―fire‖
place? Who takes the attention away from our Messiah Yahu‘shua (Jesus Christ)? Who
27
entices children with materialism? Santa is often referred to as ―Father Christmas.‖ The
word ―mas‖ pertains to the Catholic mass wherein our Messiah Yahu‘shua (Jesus) is
crucified over and over again. The Roman Catholic Church took the pagan holiday called
“Saturnalia” for “Sat” or “Satan” and changed it into the birthday of our Messiah
Yahu‘shua (Jesus)----another identity switch of Yahu‘shua (Jesus) for Satan.

Saturn is ―STUR‖ in Chaldean for Nimrod.

One of the most well-known anagrams in the occult world is the name of Sanat Kumara.
Sanat is better known as Satan. Constance Cumbey, writes in her best-selling, New-Age
expose, The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow, . . . they [New Agers] freely call Sanat
Kumara (Satan) 'God'. And their doctrinal reference books by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky and
Alice Ann Bailey freely cross-reference Sanat Kumara with Venus. In occult writings, Lucifer
and Venus are one and the same." (Constance Cumbey, The Hidden Dangers of the
Rainbow, p. 138)

Texe Marrs writes of ‗Sanat‘ in Dark Secrets of the New Age:

―. . . the New Age offers a being called Sanat Kumara. ‗Sanat‘ is obviously a thinly veiled
reference to Satan; nevertheless, New Age teachers evidently believe that the new spelling
will alleviate the concerns of those not yet ready to confess Satan as their Lord and
Messiah…..‖ Texe Marrs, Dark Secrets of the New Age, pp. 79-80 Interesting.

. . Where does that put Lord S-A-N-T-A?

H.P. Blavatsky, the Satanist and new age teacher writes in The Secret Doctrine:

―…Many a mysterious sacred name. . . conveys to the profane ear no more than some
ordinary, and often vulgar [common] word, because it is concealed anagrammatically or
otherwise…‖ H.P. Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine, Vol II, p. 78

Like S-A-N-T-A?

Blavatsky also writes, “…the name is not important – but the letters.”

―The name isn't important. It is the letters….‖ H.P. Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine, Vol II, p.
350 Blavatasky‘s anagrams were used to disguise who her true god was. Blavatasky openly
taught Satan is mankind‘s true redeemer, creator and Saviour.

And now it stands proven that Satan, or the Red Fiery Dragon, the ‗Lord of Phosphorus‘
and Lucifer, or ‗Light Bearer‘, is in us; it is our Mind — our tempter and Redeemer, our
intelligent liberator and Saviour. . .HP Blavatasky, The Secret Doctrine p. 513

Satan, the Serpent of Genesis is the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual
mankind. For it is he . . . who opened the eyes of the automaton (Adam) created by
Jehovah. . . he still remains in Esoteric Truth the ever loving messenger . . .H.P. Blavatsky,
The Secret Doctrine, Vol 3, p. 243

28
Gail Riplinger writes in her excellent book, ―New Age Bible Versions‖ on the use of
anagrams in the occult world:

―Lucifer's True Identity as Satan is Revealed as the Anagram, a Transposition of Letters, To


Obscure It. ―Blinds,‖ as esoterics call them, include scrambling the letters of a name to hide
the true meaning of a word from the uninitiated…‖--- Gail Riplinger, New Age Bible
Versions, p. 52

It is interesting Mrs. Riplinger also raises a red flag about the anagram Santa:

―Gods of the New Age include Sanatan and Sanatsiyata, . . . New Agers say each name is
‗concealed anagrammatically‘ ‗and are aliases,‘ and are 'an anagram used for Occult
purposes. Is Santa, the great usurper of Christ's attention at Christmas, an anagram? ―Ole
Nick‖ is listed among the fallen angels or devils in the Dictionary of Fallen Angels. Scholars
concur that Christ was born in the fall on the 4th day of the feast of tabernacles. December
25th is actually "the feast in honor of the birth of the son of the Babylonian queen of
heaven, later called Saturnalia by the heathen Romans….‖---Gail Riplinger, New Age
Versions, p. 52

It is also worth noting, Santa is Spanish for holy. Santa is also from the Latin word Sanctus
which means also saintly, holy. Our English words ―saint, sanctify, et al‖ comes from
Santa. Sounds like Satan‘s ―I will be like the most High" plan is in action.

Is “Claus” another anagram for “Lucas”?

It‘s no secret Lucas and Lucis are new-age ―code words‖ for Lucifer. The Alice Bailey
founded new age, occult publishing company was originally named Lucifer Publishing
Company but in 1924 the name was cleverly changed to Lucis Trust. By the way, the
Lucifer worshiping Lucis Trust is a major player in the works of the United Nations formerly
located in the United Nations building but now located on prime-time 1200 Wall Street.

It‘s no coincidence that Santa Claus sounds like ―Satan's Claws‖ for he is described as one
who comes like a roaring lion to devour:

1st Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion,
walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

29
Well…..The Name “Santa Claus” Literally Means Satan Claws!

Where did the ―Klaus‖ in ―Santa Claus‖


come from?? Santa ―CLAWS‖ (Claus) literally comes from the meaning behind the ―Claws‖
of Krampus, the Devil!

The name Krampus originates from the Old High German word for claw (Krampen).

As time passed Krampus‘ feet were replaced with ―CLAWS‖ or sometimes with hooves and
(sometimes one of each) and his body itself became covered in fur and he wore little or no
clothing. Sometimes a common ―devil‖ type tail is also added. Eventually his tongue became
obscenely long as did his horns.

Since the demon Krampus comes from the word for claw, we can soundly suggest that
Santa Claus and Satan Claws come from the same Evil Root.

Krampus – ―The word Krampus originates from the Old High German word for CLAW
(Krampen)‖…..Paganism in the Eastern Alps Article; “Krampus” http://www.Answers.com/

―Krampus is the survivor of a pagan tradition that preceded Christianity and the word
Krampus originates from the Old High German word for CLAW (Krampen).‖ ……Christmas

Satanist Anton LaVey, author of the Satanic Bible and founder
of “The First Church of Satan,” has written that ―fantasy plays an important role in any
religious curriculum. The subjective mind is less discriminating about the quality of its food
than it is about the taste. Thus, fantasy is utilized as a magic weapon in
Satanism‖…..Anton LaVey, The Satanic Rituals, p. 15

LaVey is an American Satanist; other Satanists actually worship Baal/Satan, who is called
the ―god of light‖ or the ―Sun god‖ in most cultures.

Fantasies such as Santa Claus the Tooth Fairy, and the Easter Bunny are lies that we tell
our children and we think its all ―fun and games‖ but we are actually putting our children
under a Satanic spell when we bewitch them with lies!

Interestingly enough, December 25th ranks high on the Satanist‘s Calendar, just like
Halloween and Birthdays. The birthday celebrates the Self, which is the true ―god‖ of
Satanism, according to LaVey.

31
Meet “Father X-mas” Everyone!

Do you remember Pan's Labyrinth?


Baal? Bacchus? This is also, Santa's Precious, Sweet, little helper, that your kids are
hoping will show up to bring them some toys. In the Satanic, Bible, Pan is one of the top
names of Satan himself.

Jolly Old St. Nick is Satan himself! While Santa and Claus may be disguising their real
meaning – there is no disguising St. Nick. He is a well-known character.

Old Nick: A well-known British name of the Devil. It seems probable that this name is
derived from the Dutch Nikken, the devil...Encyclopedia of Occultism and Parapsychology,
p.650 Nick, the devil….Walter W. Sleay, Concise Dictionary of English Etymology, p. 304
Devil: Besides the name Satan, he is also called Beelzebub, Lucifer . . . and in popular or
rustic speech by many familiar terms as Old Nick . . .Oxford English Dictionary Vol III D-E
Actor

Adam Sandler and ―New Line Studios‖ are obviously aware that ―Nick‖ is an alias for Satan.
Their movie “Little Nicky” is about the son of Satan named Little Nicky. A teaser for the
film says, “If your mother was an angel and your father was the devil you'd be messed up
too.”

In the popular Cloud Ten Pictures ―Apocalypse‖ film series Revelation, Tribulation, &
Judgment, the Antichrist just so happens to be played by none other than the actor “Nick”
Mancuso…..Hmmm…

The Cloud Ten Pictures are based on Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkin‘s popular ―Left Behind
Series‖ Apocalypse book series. What is the name of the Antichrist in the Left Behind
Series? Nicolae “Nick” Carpathia, of course! In fact, one of the books is titled, “Nicolae,
The Rise of the Antichrist.” It is also interesting, the book American Slang defines the
slang word nick: to rob or steal. (Robert L. Chapman, American Slang, p. 297) This is
how our Messiah Yahu‘shua (Jesus) characterizes the devil:

32
John 10:1-10

“...Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but
climbeth up some other way [say a chimney?], the same is a thief and a robber. . .9 I
am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find
pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come
that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

In Austria, the Santa Claus equivalent is St. Nicholas who


always comes with Krampus, his darker side. He is always a large, demon goat, black-clad
with antlers on his head. There are at least 60 Krampus figures who will roam the streets of
Götzens as of 7:30p.m. on Christmas Eve. On December 05, 2003, Devilish Creatures will
gather on the Götzens Church Square for the annual Krampus Run Spectacle.

Watch Video Here:

This is a Christmas party in Austria! The Big Black Horned thing you see is "Krampus" a
demon that comes with Santa bringing a bag of Switches for boys and girls that don't
behave. He would also kidnap and eat them. This is the origin of "Santa's Little Helper"
which later became the Elves at the North Pole. Every year in Austria they have a big party
for him in December.

33
This is what sitting on Santa‘s
Lap in Austria looks like. This is Black Pete, another name for Santa in Dutch Colonies.
These are the same people who made X-mas legal again in America. It had been outlawed
up until the 1800's by not only the states, but also by the Baptists, Methodists,
Presbyterians and several other Protestant denominations.

1st Corinthians 10:20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they
sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship
with devils.

Santa Claus is “Another Jesus”

Do we realize as believers where the legend of Santa Clause comes from? Here on this web
site, I found out something which I have always suspected about the myth known as ―Santa
Claus‖:

Kris Kringle means ―Christ child‖ in German. Santa Claus is also known as ―Kriss Kringle‖
in Scandinavian countries, which is a corruption of the German ―Christ Kindl‖, meaning
Christ Child.

28. Prince of Peace, the Image of God (Isa 28. Symbol of World Peace, the image of the
9:6; Hebrews 1:3) Christmas Season

Every year, SATAN has his place of being glorified as the Son of God (Kris Kringle), from the
North (Ezekiel 1:4; Psalm 48:2, read Isaiah14:13). As Santa Claus, he sits on his throne
(Isaiah 14) in all the department stores, where children queue up to ask him for the things
they want. By focusing their attention on this fat man in a red suit with god-like qualities,
children are taught to believe that, just like Santa, YHWH can be pleased with ―good
works,‖ done in order to earn His favor. They are also taught that, no matter how bad they
have been, they will still be rewarded by Elohim (God), just as Santa never failed to reward
them with gifts.

From an early age children are taught to love material possessions more than YHWH and
with the love of trying to get as many presents as possible comes selfishness and love of
oneself. They are taught to go to the wrong source for their wants and needs, and are
encouraged to behave rightly throughout the year for the wrong reasons. This is all as a
result of loving and believing this pagan myth of Santa Claus. YHWH tells us in his word
that these symptoms will become evident as we approach the last days:

2nd Timothy 3:1-4 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For
men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers,
disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false
accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded,
lovers of pleasures more than lovers of Elohim (God).

We cannot lie to our children about the myth of Santa Claus and then expect them to want
to serve the Messiah of Israel, Yahu‘shua (Jesus Christ). Our Messiah made it clear that we
cannot serve him and material things:

Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love
the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot
serve Elohim (God) and mammon (money, materialism).

36
If we lie to our children about Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth fairy, we
do the following:

1.) By lying to them about these myths, we set an example to them that ―lying is okay‖ as
long as it is in fun and thus we teach our children to tell lies.

2.) We destroy their trust when they find out they have been lied to.

3.) They will question whether or not we lied to them about the reality of our Messiah
Yahu‘shua (Jesus Christ), and they will always have some level of doubt.

4.) We endanger our own souls by telling lies.

2nd Corinthians 4:4 tells us that Satan is “the god of this world”, so it should not come
as a surprise that he is popular all over the world as the personage of ―Santa Claus.‖

The pagan world celebrates ―Santa Claus‖, (a friend of the world), yet YHWH tells us in:

James 4:4 “…Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the
world is enmity with Elohim (God)? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is
the enemy of Elohim (God).”

No matter how inferior we may feel if we tell our children the truth about Santa Claus, we
must realize that YHWH does not want us to go along with the rest of the world:

Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the
renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect,
will of Elohim (God).
