The “Nimrod” Tree – “NIMROD” – The LORD of Christmas


The “Nimrod” Tree
“NIMROD” – The LORD of Christmas

“Nimrod started the great organized worldly apostasy 
from God that has dominated this world until now. 
Nimrod married his own mother, whose name was Semiramis. 
After Nimrod’s death, his so-called mother-wife, 
Semiramis, propagated the evil doctrine of the survival 
of Nimrod as a spirit being. She claimed a full-grown 
evergreen tree sprang overnight from a dead tree stump, 
which symbolized the springing forth unto new life 
of the dead Nimrod. On each anniversary of his birth, 
she claimed, Nimrod would visit the evergreen tree 
and leave gifts upon it. December 25th, was the birthday 
of Nimrod. This is the real origin of the Christmas tree.”

“Traditionally, a yule log was burned in the fireplace 
on Christmas Eve and during the night as the log’s embers 
died, there appeared in the room, as if by magic, a 
Christmas tree surrounded by gifts. The yule log 
represented the sun-god Nimrod and the Christmas tree 
represented himself resurrected as his own son Tammuz.”
–After Armageddon -Chapter 4
Where do we get our ideas?
by John A. Sarkett

“So our Christmas tree — and our yule log — have 
tremendous meaning, but not a Christian meaning. 
The yule log is the dead Nimrod, human ruler of 
ancient Babylon, who was eventually deified as the 
sun incarnate, and hence a god. The Christmas tree 
is mystical Tammuz, the slain god come to life again.”

The Real Origin of Christmas

“The real origin of Christmas goes back to ancient 
Babylon. It is bound up in the organized apostasy 
with which Satan has gripped a deceived world these 
many centuries! In Egypt, it was always believed that 
the son of Iris (Egyptian name for “Queen of Heaven”) 
was born December 25th. Semiramis also bore the title
“Queen of Heaven” – and she was Nimrod’s mother.
Paganism celebrated this famous birthday over most 
of the known world for centuries before the birth 
of Christ.”
-The Plain Truth About Christmas
by David J. Stewart | December 24th, 2005

“Christmas as a pagan holiday traces back 
thousands of years before to a man named Nimrod, 
founder of ancient pagan Babylon.”
-Christmas Unwrapped
From the History Channel
by Alan Mansager

“December 25 was highly honored and recognized 
by Nimrod’s supporters…Many centuries later 
this pagan custom was “Christianized” as being 
the birthday of Christ.”

Who Was Really Born On December 25?

“Lent, Easter and Christmas are of Babylonian origin.”
2000 B.C. TO DATE
by Edward Stevens (1895-1966)

“December 25th was celebrated as 
Nimrod’s birthday. Generally, all mankind 
is fast asleep, dreaming this old Babylonian dream.”
-The Story Of Nimrod, 
As It Relates To Christmas And Easter
by Wilhelm J Wolfaardt 

A Deception of Satan

“Jesus Christ was NOT born on December 25. 
But December 25th can be traced back to Genesis 
and a man named Nimrod. Nimrod was the founder 
of a great false religious system that began in
ancient Babylon that has always opposed the truths 
of God. It’s time we face facts! This world is deceived, 
just as God prophesied it would be (Rev. 12:9). 
Satan is the power behind this deception. 
Satan has successfully pawned off the old customs 
of the Babylonian mystery religion as being pleasing 
to Jesus Christ.”
– Why Christmas is (Not) So Important to God  
By Carl Hilliker and Mark Jenkins  December 2002 
article in; The Trumpet

A Corruption Against Jehovah God

“As the people increased in number, 
the Way of Jehovah was corrupted 
and a principal figure in those days was Nimrod, 
the grandson of Ham described as a mighty hunter 
before Jehovah.  The word ‘before’ used in this 
sense means, ‘totally antagonistic to Jehovah.’
We celebrate Christmas on a date which coincides 
with the birthday of Nimrod – the villainous king 
of ancient Babylon.”
-The Ensign Trust
VOLUME I No.2 – JUNE 1999
By Harry Lancaster
“Nimrod, who built Babel or Babylon, conceived a 
one world government model in rebellion against 
Jehovah-God and went about to establish a one world 
government in the land of Shinar (which is today 
known as Iraq) and institute a pagan worship system 
that rejected the Lord God Jehovah.”

“Not only has the original Babylonian religious system 
served as the source of all the world’s non-Christian 
religions, hut it has also infiltrated and corrupted 
Christendom to an alarming degree.”
–Babylon – Source of False Religion 
“Babylon, Mystery Religion” by Ralph Woodrow
“Nimrod was a great grandson of Noah. 
Nimrod became a “mighty tyrant in the face of Jehovah.” 
Much of the Babylonian worship was carried on through 
mysterious symbols – thus the “Mystery” religion. 
This system of idolatry spread from Babylon to the
nations, for it was from this location that men were 
scattered over the face of the earth (Gen. 11:9). 
As they went from Babylon, they took their occult 
worship and its various mystery symbols with them.”
–Babylon – Source of False Religion 
“Babylon, Mystery Religion” by Ralph Woodrow

Nimrod and – His Mother – Semiramis
were the —  “MODELS”  —
after which Satan Fashioned
all other False gods and goddesses
“Thus from Babylon emerged the entire complex of 
human “religion”.  the various gods and goddesses 
of Rome, Greece, India, Egypt, and other nations 
can be identified with corresponding gods from Babel.”
–Babylon – Source of False Religion 
“Babylon, Mystery Religion” by Ralph Woodrow
Here – Below – is a partial list of some gods that were fashioned after Nimrod –
according to Secular Scholars – 


Christendom is Tied to False gods
Christendom will not admit, that by compromising with the pagans of
the world when adopting December 25th as Christ’s birthday – they have
tied themselves into honoring all the pagan gods of the world.

How so ?

Almost all the pagan gods – who are nothing more than “Nimrod” reincarnated,
all claim December 25th as their birthday.  The list is exhaustive.

Many False Gods – Whose Birthday was “December 25”
Fashioned After “NIMROD”


“December 25th – not only was Mithra, the sun-god of 
Mithraism, said to be born at this time of the year,
but OsirisHorusHerculesBacchusAdonisJupiter, 
Tammuzand other sun-gods were also supposedly born 
at what is today called the “Christmas” season, the winter solstice!
– Doane, p.474;  
– “The Two Babylons; Alexander Hislop, p.93.

“The “winter solstice (December) was the time at which all the
 “from Osiris to Jupiter” and Mithra had celebrated
their (birth
days) –  the celebration being adorned with 
the pine tree of Adonis, the holly of Saturn, and the
 (of the pagan Druids)…..tapers(candles) represented 
the kindling of the newborn sun-god’s fire…”
-Man and His Gods, p.201.

“Subtly…the old gods had entered their churches…
And they live still in the festivals of Christianity.”
-(Testament: The Bible and History, 
   Romer, 1988, pp. 230-31) 

In Sharp Contrast to Jesus

And here we have Jesus Christ who was born in a warm month when the
flocks were still outdoors at night – as ample proof that a compromise has been 
made.   December 25th was celebrated by the pagans in Christ’s day, but
he and his early followers would have NO PART of it.

It is evident that Jesus was NOT born during the middle of winter
for at the time of his birth, the shepherds were living out in the fields
with their flocks. As the bible says: ‘There were in the same country
shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night” 
(Luke 2:8). 
As is well known, the shepherds in Palestine do NOT
“abide in the fields” during the winter season because of the extreme, 
cold temperatures
The shepherds always bring their flocks in 
from the mountain slopes and fields 
no later than October 15th! “
– Mede’s Works, 1679. Discourse xlvii
Christ’s First Followers –
REFUSED to Celebrate December 25th

“On your day of gladness, we [Christians] neither cover 
our doorposts with wreaths, nor intrude upon the day with lamps. 
At the call of public festivity, you consider it a proper thing 
to decorate your house like some new brothel. 
We are accused of a lower sacrilege because 
we do not celebrate along with you the holidays …” 
– (Tertullian, (A.D. 155-220), 2001, p. 1176).
  (quoted by David Bercot, A Dictionary of Early Christian Beliefs, 
         1998, p. 342).
“The pagan Romans clad their doorposts with green and branching
laurels…In the Saturnalia…Presents come and go…There are…gifts…
and Banquets…yet Christians should have no acquaintance with 
the festivals of the pagans.”
– Tertullian, (A.D. 155-220), 
  quoted by David Bercot, 
A Dictionary of Early Christian Beliefs, 1998, p. 342).

“In the days of Christ, December 25th 
was sacred to the pagan Romans…”
-The Xmas Story Part 4
 “Heathen Holidays” by Denise Snodgrass 
“Familiar to early Christians was the Saturnalia,
an ancient Roman festival celebrated during the 
last days of December in honour of Saturn, the god 
of agriculture. The Saturnalia…was diametrically 
opposed to the teachings of Christ.”
– Hidden Truths About Christmas
  UCG; Australia
“To the pagans, the Saturnalia was fun. 
To the Christians, the Saturnalia was an 
 in homage to a disreputable god 
who had no existence anyway.”
-4,000 Years of Christmas:
A Gift from the Ages (1997)
Earl Count 

“At the time of persecution, 
Christians were detected 
by NOT decorating their houses 
at the Saturnalia. The ancient Christians 
were puritanically jealous of anything that
might seem like coqueting with idolatry. “
“Gift Giving – during the Roman festival of Saturnalia,
gifts were given as good luck emblems and houses were
decorated with greenery.  The early Christians, however,
 frowned on this pagan ritual, and wouldn’t have any part of it.”
– Christmas Traditions & Trivia
1999 HFCWillcox
“Faithful men of God who knew and loved 
the Scriptures of truth fought against 
the mingling of paganism with the name of Christ. 
They were valiant in opposing the entry of 
Christmas and its festivals among the believers.”
-The Truth about CHRISTMAS
Flee from Idolatry
by R. F. Becker

“The early Christians discouraged the use of 
evergreen decorations in Christian homes and 
assemblies, because their display had long been 
associated with heathen festivals.”
-Campbell ; The Story of Christmas

But how quick Christendom was – to jump in bed with paganism.

No wonder she is called a whore.

“Babylon”  – The Great

Jumping in Bed with Paganism

Spiritual Adultery / Spiritual Fornication

Christianity has jumped in bed with paganism!”
-The Surprising Origin of CHRISTMAS! 
 William F. Dankenbring and John D. Keyser

“The wicked apostate Church fornicated spiritually
with the heathen, pagan religions of the world, 
and “ADOPTED” the date of December 25th 
as the “birth-day” of Jesus the Messiah, 
who was born nowhere NEAR that time of year!”
-The Surprising Origin of CHRISTMAS! 
 William F. Dankenbring and John D. Keyser

“Christmas…was not instituted by Christ
or the apostles, nor by Bible authority. 
It was picked up afterward from paganism.” 
-Encyclopedia Britannica, 1946 edition
“…the whoredoms of all perverted Christian 
religionists are still in essence the same old harlotry 
which first found place and embodiment on the banks of 
the Euphrates. It is the same old Babylon, and her harlot
daughters, bearing rule or kingdom upon the dominions of
the earth, and intoxicating the inhabitants thereof 
out of the wine of her fornication. True religion and 
an uncorrupted Church have never suited the 
representatives of power, or pleased them long.”
Excerpt from ‘The Apocalypse’ by J. A. Seiss
“The wine of old Babylon’s fornication was a debauching
system of idol worship and carnal self-exaltation, over
and against the revelations and institutes of Jehovah. 
It was already bottled and labelled before the first 
dispersion (Confusion of Tongues at the Tower of Babel). 
It went with that dispersion into every country and nation 
under heaven. As a matter of fact, we find it to this day
among all the nations of the earth, affecting and controlling 
their thinking, their policies, their faith, and their worship. 
Not less than two-thirds of the population of the earth 
at this hour are Pagan idolaters, drivelling under the same
old intoxication which came forth from Nimrod and Babylon.”
Excerpt from ‘The Apocalypse’ by J. A. Seiss

“When the early church departed from God 
and imbibed pagan errors, she became Babylon..”
– the International Sabbath School Quarterly, 
    Feb. 29, 1896

“It was by departure from the LORD, 
and alliance with the heathen 
that the…church became a harlot.” 
– The Great Controversy,  page 382.

In 1851, James White wrote 
‘The woman, which is the great city, called Babylon, 
symbolizes the fallen apostate churches’…. “
