Apostles' Doctrine


The birthday of Jesus Christ is not known. Neither Jesus nor the original apostles commanded followers of Christ to celebrate Christ’s birthday.

There is a spirit behind every celebration. “Rather, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord’s table and of the table of demons.” (1 Cor 10:20-21 NKJV)

Every celebration is either the Lord’s table or the table of demons. Holy Communion, when done worthily, is a celebration of the cup of the Lord. Christmas is a celebration of the cup of demons.

Obedience to the commandment of God leads to the opening of spiritual eyes to see the riches of Christ. Disobedience, doubt and unbelief can blind the eyes of Christians from seeing the truth.

It is written in Luke 24 that two disciples talked about Jesus on Emmaus road. They were full of doubt regarding the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. When Jesus joined them they could not recognize Him. “But their eyes were restrained, so that they did not know Him.”

Luke 24:
30 Now it came to pass, as He (Jesus) sat at the table with them, that He took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them.
31 Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him; and He vanished from their sight.
32 And they said to one another, “Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?” (NKJV)

Your eyes of understanding must be opened by the Holy Spirit for you to comprehend the Holy Scriptures. It comes through obedience to the revealed will of God.

The will of the Father is that followers of Christ should memorialize the Lord’s death and not His birth. The foolishness of God is wiser than men. When you celebrate Holy Communion you proclaim the Lord’s death. The militant church is commanded to do so until He returns.

“For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.” (1 Cor 11:26 NKJV)
