Colossians 2:8-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.
Easter, a time to commemorate Jesus Christ, our Lord and savior. He died and rosed with all power in his hands. He was in the earth for three days and for three nights. Christ was whipped and beat all night long. He was mocked, spit on and lied on. Yet he never said a mumbling word for me. The last showing of his grace, mercy and love toward us was Christ being hung on calverey cross. Christ that perverbal slain lamb of God was the ultimate sacrifice to atone for the world’s sins. He is the reason why we should all pick up our cross and bear. Now any of you that is lost in darkness and need to come into his marvelous light come forth and repent of your sins. Ask Jesus, yes sweet Jesus to come into your life and begin to do a new thing. Now Jesus said come as you are. You don’t have to be embarrassed or afraid. Let not thy brethren judge you in silence. Like jesus told the men preparing to stone the women. Let any of you without sin cast the first stone. Come now. Don’t wait, don’t guess. Don’t look around to see whose watching. Tomorrow is not promised. So come and be washed in the blood and be made pure white as snow. Let everyone stand, bow there heads and close there eyes. Father God we come before you father in your son’s Jesus Christ name broken and beaten seeking healing. We are tired of running from you, being disobedient and stubborn. No more will we reject your love. We repent of every act of sin that we have committed in our life. We come seeking your forgiveness, grace and mercy. We open our hearts today toward you allowing you into our lives to clean us up, set us free from bondage and make us whole. Create in me a pure heart that I may worship thee. Give me a new mind, a new walk, a new talk and a renewed spirit that I will walk out a changed man. We thank you for your saving grace and mercy that you have upon ours souls. In your darling son Jesus mighty name thank you God and Amen. Give a hand clap of praise for these souls being saved as they return to there sets. Now before we get out of here we will have our announcements, tithes and ushers gather our new saved, saintified members names down and escort them to the back for new members orientation. Youth follow sister Rudy up stairs to receive your Easter goodies, with colored eggs and baskets. Everyone it’s offering time. Brother Tyrone on the keys play me I know it was the blood while people come cheerfully giving. Once you paid church is dismissed.
Nope, I don’t think so.
Ecclesiastes 1:9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
What is Easter?
According to Encyclopedia Britannica Easter, Latin Pascha, Greek Pascha, principal festival of the Christian Church, which celebrates the ressurection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his crucifixion.
According to Zondervan Bible Dictionary, Easter originally a Saxon word (Eostre), denoting a goddess of the Saxons, in honour of whom sacrifices were offered about the time of the Passover. Hence the name came to be given to the festival of the Resurrection of Christ, which occured at the time of the Passover. In the early English versions this word was frequently used as the translation of the Greek pascha (the Passover). When the Authorized Version (1611) was formed, the word “passover” was used in all passages in which this word pascha occurred, except in Act 12:4 . In the Revised Version the proper word, “passover,” is always used.
Who is Easter?
Then look at Easter. What means the term Easter itself? It is not a Christian name. It bears its Chaldean origin on its very forehead. Easter is nothing else than Astarte, one of the titles of Beltis, the queen of heaven, whose name, as pronounced by the people Nineveh, was evidently identical with that now in common use in this country. That name, as found by Layard on the Assyrian monuments, is Ishtar. (The Two Babylons, Alexander Hislop p.92)
Ishtar is the goddess of the Akkadian, Assyrian and Babylonians. She is the goddess of war, love, sex and fertility. Her symbols are hook-shaped knot of reeds, eight-pointed star, lion, rosette, and dove. Now Ishtar known as Semiramis in the Bible was not only the mother/wife to both Nimrod and Tammuz, but her titles were the whore of Babylon, the Mother goddess and the Queen of heaven.
The reason that Ishtar is associated with Easter is due Semiramis telling a tale of how she is came down from the moon in a giant moon egg that landed in the Euphrates river. She’s states that this event would happen at the first full moon after the spring equinox. This is how Semiramis became known as Ishtar and her egg became known as Ishtar’s egg.
Other cultures also celebrate the mother goddess on Easter and she goes by various names. To the Germans and Anglo-Saxons Easter is known as Ostara or Eostre she is the Germanic goddess of the spring and dawn. The month of April was known as “Ōstarmānod” or Easter month. Like Ishtar her festival is celebrated on the vernal equinox, the first day of spring. Also what’s associated with Ostara or Eostre is the same symbols that are associated with Ishtar, the bunny rabbit and egg. The egg and rabbit are symbols of sex and fertility.
Where does the Resurrection story come from??
I don’t care how much funny you do Friday to Sunday is not three days it’s more like a day in a half. Maybe even two days.
The spring celebration of “Easter” represents the period of the vernal equinox, when the sun is “hung on a cross” composed of the days and nights of equal length.
After a touch-and-go battle for supremacy with the night or darkness, the sun emerges triumphant, being “born again” or “resurrected” as a “man,” moving towards “his” full strength at the summer solstice… Source: Christ in Egypt: The Horus-Jesus Connection By D. M. Murdock, Acharya S pg. 390)(Christ in Egypt: The Horus-Jesus Connection
What is Good Friday
Before the day was called good Friday it was traditionally recognized as “Goddess Friday” then later changed to “God Friday” and now as we this day as “Good Friday.” The day Friday belongs to the Norse Goddess of creation Freya, where the English name Friday originates.
A break down of the day known as Good Friday.
Latin: Good Friday is bonum Veneris diem
Spanish: Good Friday is buen viernes
Now Latin translation of Friday is dies veneris. Wait what does Veneris/Viernes mean?
Well Friday is associated with the planet Venus. dies veneris means Venus day. In Rome Venus was the Ancient Roman’s Goddess of love. Now if we do a break down of the planet Venus we find out that is always associated with any versions of the mother goddess. The planet Venus is also called the evening and morning star and is the brightest star. Wait who else do we know that is referenced as the bright and morning star. Isaiah 14:12 KJV How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
Note: Planet Venus is associated with the alchemical symbol for the metal copper, is in reference to female and is associated with the five pointed star or inverted pentagram.
The Egg/Where do we get the practice of dying eggs??
The egg is a symbol of resurrection; bringing forth new life. “The egg symbolize the rebirth of nature, the fertility of the earth and all creation.” source: (https://www.goddessandgreenman.co.uk/ostara/)
So where do we get the practice of dying eggs from? I have always wondered about that as a child. I mean Christ suffered and dies on a cross just to have his day robbed by some rabbit laying eggs. No, that’s not true rabbits don’t lay eggs, not even colored eggs at that. So where does dying eggs come from. Well the priest Ishtar would sacrifice infants/babies and dye the eggs in the blood of the young. This practice is in reference to child sacrifice.
Now it’s not enough that Semiramis convinced her followers that she came down in a moon egg, but she also turned a bird into a egg laying rabbit. I mean Semiramis that bird probably had hopes and dreams of building a bird nest for it’s young and finding a mate. Not hopping around the world laying colored eggs in various placing that kids will have to search for and find.
The rabbit is a symbol of fertility. In Celtic tradition, the hare is sacred to the Goddess and is the totem animal of lunar goddesses such as Hecate, Freyja and Holda – the hare is a symbol for the moon. The Goddess most closely associated with the Hare is Eostre, or Ostara. The date of the Christian Easter is determined by the phase of the moon. The nocturnal hare, so closely associated with the moon which dies every morning and is resurrected every evening, also represents the rebirth of nature in Spring. Both the moon and the hare were believed to die daily in order to be reborn – thus the Hare is a symbol of immortality. It is also a major symbol for fertility and abundance as the hare can conceive while pregnant. Over the centuries the symbol of the Hare at Ostara has become the Easter Bunny who brings eggs to children on Easter morning, the Christian day of rebirth and resurrection.
Hot Cross Bun Cakes
The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger. Jeremiah 7:18 KJV
This was offered up to Semiramis, Inanna, Ishtar, Astarte, Ostara, Eostre, etc. This is pagan and the heavenly father is against it. The cross has nothing to do with the Christ of the Bible. The cross is the “T” for Tammuz. It’s the Tao cross. The Christ of the Bible wasn’t hung on a cross he was hung on a tree.
Proof: cross just means in Latin a upright stake or pole.
“The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.” Acts 5:30
The Easter Fire is a custom of pagan origin spread all over Europe. It is a symbol of victory, the victory of beautiful and sunny spring over the cold days of winter.
Foods in tune with this day (linking your meals with the seasons is a fine way of attuning with Nature) include eggs, egg salad, hard-boiled eggs, honey cakes, first fruits of the season, fish, cakes, biscuits, cheeses, honey & ham.
Green, blue, yellow, lavender, pink, white and red.
Passover and Easter should not be confused or merged together. The god of the Bible tells us not to worship or partake in any pagan practices, rites or rituals. We are not to worship the heavenly host, signs, symbols, idol worship. Those are false gods but Satan, Lucifer whatever you want to call him doesn’t care. He plays both masculine and feminine. He don’t care about what form or variation of him that you pray to or worship. He and his followers find divine beauty in the coming together of opposites. He just don’t want you to believe, seek, pray and worship the true creator Yahawah.
