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.

Why we don’t have

What it do

So I’m sitting in my car looking at YouTube videos and literally dozing off to sleep. A thought just popped in my head of why we don’t have. By no means are any of my blog post going to promote or reference money. Why because knowledge and understanding is more lucrative and better than all the rubies, silver and gold and none shall compare. With that being said, one of the scriptures in the Bible states,

James 4:2-3

Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.

Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts

Let me break down what this is saying. The reason why some of us if not most of us walk around feeling a sense of lacking and unfulfillment is because we don’t ask the heavenly father for that wisdom, knowledge and understanding. As humans we spend more time looking at what others have instead of going to the heavenly father asking him to reveal to us what he has already blessed us with. We spend more time strategizing how we will obtain what others have. Never being satisfied with the stuff we have and never going to the heavenly father asking him to reveal this to us what we have. Also asking him to show us how to utilize it to the fullest. We walk around just wanting and wanting, but avoiding the knowledge and understanding of how to obtain and maintain. We want what others have. We pay attention to what others got. In our eyes the purpose for life is quantified through how much assets a person has and can obtain. So we consume, and consume, then consume some more. Never really filling the void, but rather left with the feelings of unsatisfaction.

Now the funny thing about all of this is that most people can say, well Fisher of men I ask the heavenly father and still receive not. Why is that so? Well, simple. As people our hearts are not in the right place for the things that we are asking for. See when you are desperate to have you become oblivious to the purpose that these things should serve. Now there is nothing wrong with wanting stuff, but let’s be honest about 85% to 90% of the things that we desperately want. They do not serve any purpose. We just ask for things so we can be able to say, “I got that” and show off to people. And listen I feel it because most of the commercials on TV is telling you what latest gadgets, apperals and equipment that we should have. They make us feel left out by saying, “if you don’t have it than you’re probably missing out.” Also, “get it before its all gone.” However the heavenly father is not in the business of granting wishes. He’s not a genie in the bottle. You can’t rub him and he’ll grant you three wishes. I know that we would all love for him to be that way, but he has a certain way that he does business.

The heavenly father is not interested in granting us with things so we can brag and showoff. He wants to know can he trust us. When we come and ask him for things or reveal to us what he has already supplied us with. He wants to know what purpose will it serve in building up his kingdom. Once he gives it to you can he trust you to do just that help build his kingdom. I mean when Earth passes away the only thing that will remain is the heavenly father anyway so why place so much emphasis on establishing wealth and having assests. Those things will eventually perish.

Now does this mean you can’t have? No, you can have. This just mean the stuff that you are asking for. Take a step back and ask yourself what purpose will it serve.

For example, a scenario

Think about this. All of your friends have businesses. You see that the public holds your friends in high regard. Also, you watch the respect that your friends have amongst themselves. You being the friend with no business want what they have. You plan to go to a bank and request a ten thousand dollar loan to start a small business. You imagine your friends catching word of this and they start speaking highly of you. You imagine your friends bragging to other people about you. You imagine going out with your friends to dinner and that same respect your friends have for each other, they now have it for you. You imagine the public now holding you in high regard. You go and ask the heavenly father to support you and please make it come true. He tells you, no. He ask you what purpose is this business going to serve. You don’t have a answer. All you say is that all of my friends have businesses. All of my friends are a success. I want that too. Mean while, across town there are homeless people. They need food, water, shelter, clothes, and programs need to be created to give them a fresh new start in life. Now you want to keep up with the Joneses. You want to impress your friends and get their praise and approval. However the most high is looking for a willing participant to bless the less fortunate.

So you want a business to be like your friends. The most high let’s you know that he is not interested in fulfilling the desires of your heart, because it is wicked. So now you have a choice.

Which one is more important to you, lusting for what others got or taking what you have and giving the heavenly father what he want?
