December 25th meant nothing to the twelve Apostles of Jesus, nor did it mean anything to the Early Church. The early church knew well the meaning of Holy Days and reverenced Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles as times of celebration. In today's religious circles, Holy Days have evolved into holidays (translation of men). It is no coincidence that Ancient Romans loved the December season. For it was during this time they celebrated Saturnalia. When Rome ruled the world, the feast of Saturnalia paid homage to the "birthday of the sun". He was supposedly the Roman Harvest god and was depicted as a "little ole man" with a sickle in one hand and a serpent in the other. The customs of the feast included: eating and drinking along with dancing. Also decorating homes with evergreens, giving of gifts and lighting bonfires were a big part. During this winter solstice, pagans would get drunk and have orgies. Does it matter or does it not? We shall see!

     Around the Throne of God they now sing a NEW SONG! The NEW SONG has no mixture and must be loud and clear without any uncertain sound of a confused trumpet. "And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: And they sang as it were a new song before the throne, and before the elders:and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. The earth's influence loses hold on God's Remnant. "...These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb"(Rev.14:2-4)

     You can hear trumpets sounding everywhere, many with uncertain sounds. But the redeemed have fallen in love with "heavenly harps"! This certain sound comes from a higher dimension!  Here's the revelation: The redeemed have already heard the seventh trumpet and the Mystery of God is no longer a mystery, but it is now the experience of CHRIST IN YOU THE HOPE OF GLORY!  "And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament:...(Rev.11:19) The heavens are opened and Jesus reigns in the midst of "the body of Christ"! Jesus' mission was a huge success!  Rev.chapter 5, tells us in highly symbolic language each of the living creatures and the twenty four elders all had harps and all worshiped at Jesus' feet! To hear the harp, is to let the strings of your heart chime out the melody of redemption, having no other gods before Him, following the Lamb whithersoever He goeth!  If you actually know the value of being sealed unto redemption by the Holy Ghost, you can't help but enter into a secret place and strum your "heavenly harp" at the feet of Jesus in glorious adoration!

     The Greek word for redeemed is "agorazo" in Strong's Concordance and means to purchase, then after purchasing take the purchased possession out of circulation. Jesus has redeemed his "remnant" unto himself and they cannot be plucked out of his hand! Those who are wealthy enough to buy exclusive artwork such as Picasso or Van Gogh, do not put them on public display. They reserve them for their own! Jesus has such exclusive artwork but just like a Van Gogh painting they are a rare remnant. Apostle Peter says it like no other can: "Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things , as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition of your fathers:"(I Pet.1:18)  The sad news is the rare and precious things of God will stay obscured as long as the people of God prefer tradition of earthly fathers instead of our Heavenly Father!
