Deuteronomy 12:2-4

Deuteronomy 12:2-4

2 Ye shall utterly destroy all the places, wherein the nations which ye shall possess served their gods, upon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under every green tree:

3 And ye shall overthrow their altars, and break their pillars, and burn their groves with fire; and ye shall hew down the graven images of their gods, and destroy the names of them out of that place.

4 Ye shall not do so unto the Lord your God.

  1. Often-times when I show people the warning against Christmas & Easter-Egg Trees in Jeremiah 10:1-3, they will excuse it away by trying to rationalize that the warning is not against decorating trees, but rather against taking wood and carving it into an idol. But if you need more proof that YaHuWaH is against using trees for worship, see the verses below:

    Debariym (Deuteronomy) 12:2 You shall utterly destroy all the places, wherein the nations which You shall possess served their gods, upon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under every green tree.

    1st Melakiym (Kings) 14:23 For they also built them high places, and images, and Asherah (groves), on every high hill, and under every green tree.

    2nd Melakiym (Kings) 16:4 And he sacrificed and burnt incense in the high places, and on the hills, and under every green tree.

    2nd Melakiym (Kings) 17:10 And they set them up images and groves in every high hill, and under every green tree.

    2nd Dibrey ha’Yamiym (Chronicles) 28:4 He sacrificed also and burnt incense in the high places, and on the hills, and under every green tree.

    Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 57:5 Enflaming yourselves with idols under every green tree, slaying the children in the valleys under the clifts of the rocks?

    Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah) 2:20 For of old time I have broken your yoke, and burst your bands; and you said, I will not transgress; when upon every high hill and under every green tree you wandered, playing the harlot.

    Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah) 3:6 YHWH said also unto me in the days of Josiah the king, Have you seen that which backsliding Yisra’el has done? she is gone up upon every high mountain and under every green tree, and there has played the harlot.

    Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah) 3:13 Only acknowledge your iniquity, that you have transgressed against YHWH your Elohiym, and have scattered your ways to the strangers under every green tree, and You have not obeyed my voice, says YHWH.

    Yechezqel (Ezekiel) 6:13 13 Then shall you shall you know that I am YHWH, when their slain men shall be among their idols round about their altars, upon every high hill, in all the tops of the mountains, and under every green tree, and under every thick oak, the place where they did offer sweet savour to all their idols.

  2. Sabbats: A Witch’s Approach To Living The Old Ways by Edain McCoy (A Practicing Witch)

    (Page 53): “Yule is a time of mixed emotions for pagans. All around us we see evidence of the Christmas celebration…one which we know takes its form and meaning from ancient pagan practices. Virgin births, decorated trees, festive lights, feasting, wreaths, bells, and fragrant fires, were-and still areat the heart of pagan Midwinter observances.”

    (Page 59): “For pagans, this usurping of Yule (by Christians) has one great advantage-it has preserved for us many ancient Yule customs which might otherwise have been lost. Look in any book and Christmas customs around the globe and you will find a plethora of pagan traditions.”

    (Pages 85 and 86): “Music is another important part of Yule, and Christmas carols are yet another idea taken from paganism. Many common Christmas carols contain pagan images that are not so subtle. “Carols are form an Old /French word meaning “joyous songs”, and were also the name of round dances celebrating the rebirth of the Frankish pagan gods. The English Christmas Carol “Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly” contains not one Christian religious image.” (Note: That is because the images mentioned are pagan in their origin as we will see.) “When Yule rolls around you should feel free to have a lighted tree in your home, hang a wreath on your door, ring the jingle bells, and give gifts in memory of loved ones. Remember that this is a Sabbat, a pagan festival, a time that marks the return of the Sun god both to his Goddess Bride and to his joyous people.
