Santa Claus belongs to Natural Man

Hebrews 11:6

But without faith it is impossible to be pleasing to God. For it is necessary for the one drawing near to God to believe that He is, and that He becomes a rewarder to the ones seeking Him out.

1 Corinthians 2:14

But a natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he is not able to know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

1 Corinthians 1:18

For the Word of the cross is foolishness to the ones perishing, but to us being saved it is the power of God.

Comment

Adam brought spiritual death to all that he represented and all were imputed with the result of Adam’s sin because Adam and Eve followed after other gods. The wages of sin is death and all sinned.

Natural Man is in the flesh and void of God’s spirit unable to produce faith in the true God and believe His Gospel. Natural Man falls short of the Holy Righteous Glory of God.

Romans 3:10-12

10 according as it is written, “There is not a righteous one, not even one!”

11 “There is not one understanding, there is not one seeking God.”

12 All turned aside; together they became worthless, not one is doing goodness, not so much as one!” LXX-Psa. 13:1-3

2 Corinthians 4:3-6

But if even our gospel is being hidden, it has been hidden in the ones perishing,

4 in whom the god of this age has blinded the thoughts of the faithless ones, so that the illumination of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not shine on them.

5 For we do not proclaim ourselves, but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves your slaves for the sake of Jesus.

6 Because it is God who said, “Out of darkness Light shall shine,” the One who shone in our hearts to give the illumina- tion of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. Isa. 42:6, 7, 16

Romans 8:8

8 And the ones being in the flesh are not able to please God.

Romans 8:9

But you are not in (the) flesh , but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone has not the Spirit of Christ, this one is not His.

Comment

The natural man’s father is the devil. John 8:44 and Matthew 7:11

How does one receive the Spirit of God and become a child of God?

God has to regenerate the heart and spirit from above ..causing them, once they hear the Gospel to turn from false religion unto belief of the Gospel of Christ by his Sovereign will and purpose; John 3:3-8, Galatians 3:3 evidenced by the knowledge through the gift of faith that salvation is a free gift of God to whom he unconditionally chooses based and conditioned solely on the work of Christ through His substitutionary punishment, suffering the wrath of God on the cross, shedding of his blood and his imputed perfect righteousness charged to his people’s account that he came to seek and to save without any effort or contribution from His people being saved; all to the glory of God.

They will come to Him resting in his work and person knowing they have not a sufficient righteousness to dwell with Him; if not charged with the imputed righteousness of Christ and glorified at his return.

God promises to save His people and none of His people will be lost but they all will be raised up by Jesus in the last day. Matthew 1:21 John 6:37-44, Luke 19:10, Romans 9:11

John 3:36, Mark 16:16, Roman 3, 4, 5

By one man sin entered the world and by one man many will be made righteous Romans 5

Natural Man will not relinquish his belief that he has the ability to seek and to establish his own righteousness in the attempt to please his idol worshipping god created from his own imagination; and he will not submit to the righteousness of God in Jesus Christ because he doesn’t know the righteousness of God in Jesus Christ and his own unrighteousness.

Only God is good. So, anyone void of the gift of the spirit working in them will not be able to do anything pleasing to God. Those void of the spirit will not believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ. But The justified by the work and person of Jesus Christ shall live by faith in this Gospel which is the gift of God

Romans 10:1-4

¶ Brothers, truly my heart’s pleasure and supplication to God on behalf of Israel is unto salvation.

2 For I testify to them that they have zeal to God, but not according to knowledge.

3 For not knowing the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, they did not submit to the righteousness of God.

4 For the end of the law is Christ for righ- teousness to everyone that believes.

Comment

God is in control of who is saved and who will remain blinded; otherwise why would the Apostle Paul pray to God for the Israelite’s salvation?

The saved person will say only in Jehovah is to me righteousness and strength; but the lost sinner will remain pridefully self absorbed and angry with the True Sovereign Biblical God

Isaiah 45:24

24 He shall say, Only in Jehovah is to Me righteousness and strength; to Him he comes; and they are ashamed, all who are angry with Him.

Comment

The regenerated Christian knows he can not on his own produce a righteousness sufficient to dwell with the Pure, Holy Righteous God and knows that Christ has to be his substitute in punishment, in perfect righteousness in thought Word and Deed. He knows his faith is the Sovereign gift of God without any effort from all of whom Christ represented and chose unconditionally to save from before the foundation of the world Romans 9:11. Luke 18:13, Luke 23:39-43 Ephesians 2:8-10

His people will love Him and keep his commandments John 14:15 by the spirit working in them …the willing and the doing for His good pleasure. Philippians 2:13.

Romans 9:20, 21, 22, 23, 24

20 Nay, rather, O man, who are you, the one answering back to God? Shall the thing formed say to the One forming it, Why
did You make me like this? Isa. 29:16

21 Or does not the potter have authority over the clay, out of the same lump to make one vessel to honor, and one to dishonor?
Jer. 18:6

22 But if God, desiring to display wrath, and to make His power known, endured in much long-suffering vessels of wrath having been fitted out for destruction,

23 and that (in order that) He make known the riches of His glory on vessels of mercy which He before prepared for glory,

24 whom He also called, not only us, of Jews, but also out of nations.

Comment

Natural Man man has no ability to make himself or conform himself into the image of Christ because he is dead in sins and trespasses ; Ephesians 1:1-2, 1 Corinthians 2:14 but in the believer, God will complete his work in them from His regenerating His people unto belief of the Gospel until when they will put on the incorruptible at his return and are glorified.

1 Corinthians 15:53, John 6:37-44

The Natural Man

John 8:44

You are of the devil as father, and the lusts of your father you desire to do. That one was a murderer from the beginning and he has not stood in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own things, because he is a liar, and the father of it.

1 John 2:15-16

15 Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him,

16 because everything in the world: the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not from the Fa- ther, but is from the world.

Luke 11:13

13 Then if you being evil know to give good gifts to your children, how much more the Father out of Heaven will give the Holy Spirit to the ones asking Him.

Santa Claus

Do you lie to your kids and create mistrust with your children by telling them there is a Santa Claus?

God hates liars. Proverbs 12:22, Proverbs 6:16-19, Revelation 21:8, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, Proverbs 13:9

1 John 2:15-16

15 Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him,

1 John 2:16

16 because everything in the world: the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.

Why would you lie to your kids about Santa Claus? Why would you lie to your kids about anything?

Is it because you want to manipulate them into being good or go to sleep early on Christmas Eve because Santa Claus is coming ; which is nothing more than deception?

Santa Claus is an unseen being with super natural ability that parents try to get their kids to believe in who isn’t God who brings material things to expend on your fleshly desires?

Who does that sound like?

Satan fits the Santa Claus false god image.

2 Corinthians 11:14

And it is not marvelous, for Satan transforms himself into an angel of light?

2 Corinthians 10:5

demolishing reasonings and every high thing lifting up itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought into the obedience of Christ,

Once your children find out one day you lied, will that undermine your Gospel teaching?

I’m not saying you can ruin their faith in Christ, because once God regenerates them; they will believe, but will they trust you or what you tell them?

Does a regenerate believer in the Gospel lie to their children? Do the ends justify the means? The ends justifying means concept doesn’t sound consistent with the Holy Spirit.

John 3:3,5,8

Jesus answered and said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, If one is not generated from above, he is not able to see the kingdom of God.

Jesus answered, Truly, truly, I say to you, If one is not generated out of water and Spirit, he is not able to enter into the kingdom of God.

The Spirit breathes where He desires, and you hear His voice; but you do not know from where He comes, and where He goes; so is everyone having been generated from the Spirit.

The Apostle Paul said under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit

Romans 7:5

For when we were in the flesh, the passions of sin were working in our members through the law for the bearing of fruit unto death.

Philippians 3:8

But, nay, rather I also count all things to be loss because of the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them to be trash, that I might gain Christ

Knowledge is life…. ignorance is death
