1914 Christmas Truce Contains a Lesson

Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year.

We still need $110 to meet our deficit by the first.  If you can afford it, please donate off to the right of this blog. Help us keep going until we can build our business to meet that deficit ourselves. Thank you and God Bless you in a very special way today. We are very grateful for all who have aided us so far in so many ways.

Vatic note: Celebrating Christmas with a fascinating WW I story of how average men in the war zone stopped the war and celebrated the holiday together, thus creating an effective workable cease fire.   How ironic, the 1917 Revolution in Russia,  financed by JP Morgan's Schiff, with a $20 million donation made out to Trotsky to finance the revolution, did what the top brass did not want

They needed that war, just like they need this one (WW III) for the same reason - to reline the bankers pockets with cash and profits to shore up their fiat system that was ready to collapse.  Trotsky's real name was "BRONSTEIN", so we know who he worked for.  He, like Schiff, was a khazar Zionist and worked undercover of being a Russian.

The revolution resulted in millions of Christians being killed.  Figures have ranged from 30 to 63 million Christians, even if that figure is too high, it was bad enough to send the church in Russia underground after the international bankers took control of Russia and killed off the Czar and his entire family, and were responsible for the massacre of the Christians.

So this below does not only NOT surprise me, but confirms what has been said many times, that these same bankers are nothing more than criminal, assassinating mafia drug runners/money launderers.

1914 Christmas Truce Contains a Lesson 
by Kieran Dunn, (henrymakow.com), December 24, 2014

The "Christmas Truce" of 1914-15 suggests soldiers didn't want to fight a war designed by Illuminati Jewish (VN: khazar bankers...) and (VN: ... Rothschild created........) Freemasons to eliminate Christians.

"The total number of military and civilian casualties in World War I was over 37 million: over 16 million deaths and 20 million wounded, ranking it among the deadliest conflicts in human history."

"The government of the Western nations, whether monarchical or republican, had passed into the invisible hands of a plutocracy, international in power and grasp. It was, I venture to suggest, this semi-occult power which ... pushed the mass of the American people into the cauldron of World War I." Major General J.F.C. Fuller (1878-1966) Decisive Battles of the U.S.A., 1776-1918, (1942) p.396

To the consternation of field commanders on both sides, some of the troops were reluctant to return to fighting.  In several areas, men were ordered to restart the hostilities under penalty of court martial.

It Is Worth Retelling. Today marks the centennial of the Christmas Truce of 1914.

Few realize that a century ago, the Christian nations of the world were at war.

Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox, and Coptic Christians had taken up arms against one another. They had set aside the teachings of Jesus where he said to "love your enemy" and now were engaged in a calamitous war.

By Christmas, it was evident that this 'quick war' was not soon to be over as the politicians had promised.

jpgPope Benedict  XV, left, had proposed a Christmas cease, but it was rejected as 'impossible' by both sides. 
Alfred Anderson of the British Expeditionary Force was just 18 years old and was at the front on Christmas Eve 1914, when the unthinkable happened. 

German and British soldiers began to sing Christmas carols while hunkered down in their respective trenches. Soon a truce between the combatants was established, and men who were enemies a few hours before began to greet one another and exchange gifts. 

In other areas along the front, German troops set up small trees on the parapet of their trenches, decorated them with lit candles, and began singing carols.  Soon many British troops along the front in this area began to sing along.  British and French troops began to see Germans posting signs saying, "YOU NO FIGHT; WE NO FIGHT." 

Some British units improvised 'MERRY CHRISTMAS' banners and waited for a response.  In a short period of time, what the governments of the combatants could not do, pockets of German, French, and British troops arranged a spontaneous truce, and soldiers left their trenches.

Up and down the line, men who hours earlier had sought to kill the other, met in 'no-man's land' to shake hands, share rations, chocolate cake, cognac, postcards, newspapers, tobacco, and (more solemnly) bury their dead.

Kurt Zehmisch, another BEF eyewitness recorded in his diary: "The English brought a soccer ball from the trenches, and pretty soon a lively game ensued.  How marvelously wonderful, yet how strange it was; Christmas, the celebration of Love, managing to bring mortal enemies together as friends for a time."

This informal truce, which also included some French and Belgian troops, was largely over by New Year's Day. German and British soldiers reluctantly parted, in the words of Pvt. Percy Jones of the Westminster Brigade, "with much hand-shaking and mutual goodwill." 

On January 1, 1915, the London Times published a letter from a Medical Corps Major reporting that in his sector, the British played a game against the Germans and were beaten 3-2.  Men had exchanged gifts and buttons.  Soldiers who had been barbers gave free haircuts.  One German, a juggler, gave an impromptu performance of his routine in the center of 'no-man's land.' 

German and Allied commanders tried to cover up the impromptu ceasefire.  French generals could not fathom why their soldiers disobeyed orders and joined the forbidden Christmas truce.  To the consternation of field commanders on both sides, some of the troops were reluctant to return to fighting.  In several areas, men were ordered to restart the hostilities under penalty of court martial. 

In Germany, it was not given wide publicity, and quietly the High Command replaced most front-line units that took part in the ceasefire. Though caught off guard and embarrassed by the spontaneous truce, allied commanders made sure that there would be no repeat of the 1914 Christmas truce, and during subsequent Christmases had their troops engaging the enemy during the holiday. 

The Christmas Truce of 1914 demonstrates how the common belief of a Savior born in Bethlehem shared between enemies can make even the bitterest of enemies friends. 

When the British heard the Germans sing a song about a little baby born in a stable, they joined in singing "Silent Night."
It is astonishing how a song about a little newborn baby could move enemies to put down their weapons and embrace one another as friends.

When those on both sides of the trenches realized that the Christ they knew was also the Christ their adversary knew, what other response could there have been but to establish peace among brothers?
That is why this story is worth telling every Christmas. Christ came to bring peace and forgiveness of sins to a troubled world. 

The knowledge of Christ still brings liberty and peace to all who encounter Him. 

The Christmas Truce of 1914 is a glowing testimony to the words spoken by an angel on that first Christmas so many years ago, "Peace on Earth, Good will toward all."  Merry Christmas to all!

What an historical testimonial honoring the birth of Jesus Christ. Why was this piece of history hidden from the public and the official WW1 archives? Is it because love and the brotherhood of man is contagious?

I'm a veteran myself and I now realize more than ever just how ignorant WW1 and WW2 really were. European Christians and America European Christians murdering each other for the benefit of international bankers, military industrialists, and the creation of a Jewish State that rejects the deity of Jesus Christ. What wars of shameful ignorance and destruction can compare to these.

It reminds me of the insanity of carrying our weapons into the Ft.Benning Chapel to hear a sermon during basic training. Did Jesus Christ ever arm his disciples and tell them to evangelize by military engagement?

Christianity is not and never was meant to be a religion of hating your neighbor.

You can't give a sermon one minute and then tell your congregation to kill their Christian brothers the next minute like they did in WW1 and WW2. Combined, these two wars resulted in the biggest bloodbath of mankind the world has ever known.
Let this story set the example while our only hope left is in the spirit of Jesus Christ,
