Jeremiah 10:1,2 KJV Hear ye the word which the Lord speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:
2 Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
Who are the heathens exactly? Why are they called heathens in the 1st place? December 25th is the birthday of Tammuz and his father Nimrod (Ezekiel 8 & Genesis 10) and heathens celebrate this pagan god's birthday every year and are in total violation of Jeremiah 10 when they put up a pagan tree in late December (knowing Yeshua's birthday was in September of 3 BC) in honor of the false Babylonian sun god, decorating it with idols of gold and silver. I realize this chapter speaks of the sign about to come to pass AND the heathens who are dismayed at the sign, but we KNOW that YHWH's Word is SHARPER THAN A 2 EDGED SWORD!!!!
A Way of the Heathen:
Jeremiah 10:3,4 KJV 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.
