Why do we wait one time out of the year to show our love, care and affection?

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

Colossians 2:8

No matter what you may say or think most of the holidays on the calendar have pagan origins behind them.

What is a Pagan??

a follower of a polytheistic religion (as in ancient Rome)

one who has little or no religion and who delights in sensual pleasures and material goods : an irreligious or hedonistic person

 

Valentine is the day where two people exchange candy, cards, flowers and love. It’s the time of the year where you show your significant other just how special they are. It’s the time of the year where businesses make a billion plus in revenue. However, is Valentine’s Day really about love? Where does such a holiday originate? Why the month February? Does this day have anything to do with Yahuah (God)?

Origin

Valentine’s Day is another holiday that has been “whitewashed” to hide the perverted customs and observances of pagan gods and goddesses that have been “Christianized” encouraging the world to partake in. Although Valentine’s Day appear to be innocent, the traditions and customs of this holiday originate from two ancient Roman pagan festivals 1) Lupercalia and 2) The feast of Juno Februata.

Lupercalia (Latin: Lupercalis) relating to the god Lupercus, Roman equivalent of the greek god Pan. Lupercalia is also called dies Februatus.

Lupercalia: The Roman’s festival of “sexual license” 

Lupercalia a bloody, violent and sexually-charged celebration awash with animal sacrifice, random matchmaking and coupling in the hopes of warding off evil spirits and infertility. This festival was celebrated on February 15th in honoring the Ancient Romans god Lupercus (The Wolf god), who is the god of fertility, agriculture and shepherds. The luperci (male priests) assisted by the Vestal Virgins (nuns i.e., daughters of nimrod) conducted purification rites by sacrificing goats and dogs in the Lupercal cave on Palatine Hill. This is believed by the Romans that the twins Romulus and Remus had been sheltered and nursed by a she-wolf before they founded Rome.

For this fertility rite, the Luperci would first cut the skins of the goats which they had sacrificed into pieces. “Some of these would be used to cover parts of their bodies so as to imitate their god, who was represented as half naked and half covered with goat-skin. The other pieces of skin would then be cut into straps which were held in their hands. Then, the Luperci would run through the streets of Rome, touching or striking any person they met with their straps – especially women who wanted to conceive.”

The instrument that the Luperci used to strike women with is called “Februa” which means instrument of purification and was made from sacrificed goats. The reason why the Luperci struck the women with februa is way to “promote fertility” since most of the women that were seized by Romulus were barren. The Roman month februarius is named after the latin term februum which mean “purification” thus the purification ritual using the instrument of purification februa is where we get the month February.

The month of February was also sacred to the Juno Februata, the goddess of ‘fever’ (febris in Latin) of love, women and marriage in ancient Pagan Rome.

“a box was provided from which single men could draw a “billet” — a small piece of paper on which a woman’s name was written. The couple would then form a temporary liaison for the erotic games to follow. They would remain partners for the following 12 months. Sometimes marriages resulted from this practice.”

The Whitewashing of a Perversion

Now the church tried to change the sexual behavior of this festival by instead placing saints names into the box and the young men would draw a billet and he would have to emulate that saint in which he drawn from the box. however, this failed and during the sixteenth century the church tried once more and failed again. However, in A.D. 494 Pope Gelasius would rename the festival of Juno Februata to “The feast of purification of the virgin Mary.” The date would also be changed from the 15th to the 14th of February to the 2nd and then back to the 14th of February. This festival was also called “The presentation of the lord,” because this is when Mary was purified in the Jewish temple after giving birth to Jesus Christ.

Constantine had made Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire in A.D. 325, the church leaders were trying to get rid of the pagan festivals, but Rome was unable to do so. So Pope Gelasius instead changed the holiday from the 15th to the 14th of February and called St. Valentine’s Day. This holiday was named after one of the church’s saints who was executed.

First Valentines

Who is Valentine? Who is he…….???

Valentine at the time in Rome was a popular name and it comes from the latin word Valentinus, which comes from valens, which means “to be strong, powerful and mighty.” Wait don’t this sounds familiar in the bible in the book of Genesis, Nimrod was a mighty hunter before the Lord (Gensis 10:9-11). Lupercus was the Roman version of the Greek god Pan, but the Semites called Pan “BAAL.” Baal is another name for Nimrod who established The Tower of Babel. Nimrod’s mythology is copied all throughout societies. The main ones are Egyptians, Greeks, and the Romans.

The Heart

What does a heart have to do with Valentine’s Day………???

Baal of the Phoencians and Semites. The name Ba’al (Baal) means “Lord or master” and it is mentioned throughout the scriptures as “God and Lord” which are titles of Baal aka Nimrod. In the Chaledeans language of the Babylonians, Bal, which is Baal means “HEART.”

Cupid

Why a husky man-child with a bow and arrow and wings……????

Cupid is another name for Nimrod. Cupid comes from the latin word cupere which means “to desire.” Cupid is the son of Venus Roman goddess of love. Cupid is also known as Eros in ancient Greece as the son of Aphrodite. Eros means to have love between man and women. Cupid was a archer let me remind you that Nimrod was also skilled at archery. Cupid is depicted with a bow and arrow remember Nimrod was a mighty hunter. Semiramis was Nimrod’s mother and she lusted after him, she “desired” him and later own Nimrod became her cupid/valentine i.e., “desired one.” Cupid has both cruel and happy personalities. Cupid has invisible arrows that have gold tips, he would strike men and women causing them to fall madly in love with each other. Cupid did not do this for their benefit. He did this to drive them crazy with intense passion so their lives could be miserable. Cupid would sit back and laugh at them. Cupid was mischievous. 

Valentine’s day cards

So why do we exchange them………….?????

There are at least three different Saint Valentines, all of them martyrs. You can look this up under the martyrologies under the date of 14 February. One is described as the priest in Rome, another is a bishop of Interamna (modern Terni) and the other supposedly died in Africa. These men had suffered in the second half of the third century and were buried on the “flaminian way.”

Valentine, disobeyed Claudius by performing wedding ceremonies for young men, when the Emperor preferred to see them roped into military service rather than marriage. While imprisoned, Valentine fell in love with a young girl who visited him, perhaps the daughter of the jailer. Before he was executed, he allegedly sent her a letter, signed, From your Valentine.

Red Roses

why do we give them………..????

The red rose is the flower of Venus the Roman goddess of love. It is used to symbolize fire and strong emotions

pan, aphrodite and erosThe picture is a depiction of The goat god Pan on the right, Eros at top and Aphrodite to the left. This is Nimrod, Tammuz and Semiramis.

And I will punish Bel in Babylon, and I will bring forth out of his mouth that which he hath swallowed up: and the nations shall not flow together any more unto him: yea, the wall of Babylon shall fall.
My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of the Lord.

Jeremiah 51:44-45

I just want to leave off by saying this why would you allow a holiday to dictate when you should show your love to your significant other. There are 365 days out of the year. you mean to tell me that 364 of those days are spent not caring, appreciating or showing love and care. But on that 365th day, that 1 day out of the year you’re going to spend all this money trying to prove, show and express something that you have the opportunity of doing every other day and IT WON’T COST YOU A DAMN THING.
