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.

Happy Birthday But To Who??? Origin of Birthdays


No Comments

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.

My birthday is December 6th and I’m grateful that the Heavenly Father is blessing me to turn twenty-six years of age. I don’t take this time in my life for granted, because I know that some people are not able to see another year. Through all of this research that I am doing, I wonder about the origin of birthday celebrations. I’m curious you know, I’m questioning a lot of things that we do as people. There are a lot of holidays, events, festivals, organizations, etc…. that we partake in and do not have the knowledge on why we do, what we do.

So I turned into a detective and this is what I found………………..

You know, it’s funny because I never had a birthday party growing up as a child. I would go to school and hear how a lot of my classmates were celebrated on their “special day.” I would hear about the gifts that they received. The clothes that they wore and the food that they ate. One could say that if they said or thought anything that was disrespectful it would be overlooked. Why? well, that’s because today is their day, so their actions were overlooked and excused. In my twenty-five years on this planet I have only been apart of a couple of birthday parties. Some being my grandmother on my dad side and a few of my former school acquaintances. you know I hear my sister voice as I’m writing this,

It’s my birthday

I can cry if I want to

do what I want to

feel how I want to

cry if I want to (x4)

Now, I don’t know if those are the true lyrics of the song, or my sister added words, or this song does not exist; it’s just made up. I do know one thing she used to sing it a lot and for about a five year period it was her birthday theme song.

Having my fair share of birthday parties in which I attended felt weird. I enjoyed watching people reaction while receiving a gift that does not validate what they perceived their value to be. It amazes me how some people actually correlate the love that a particular individual should have for them through gift giving. I don’t mean to digress, but we see such behavior during Christmas, valentines day, mother’s day, father’s day (in my opinion fathers are least appreciated) and wedding rings (it’s not a holiday but it should be, with the amount of commercials stating, “show her love with a diamond”).

I watched people being worshipped on their “special day.” They would receive any and every gift possible. The people I watched had to have it all; they wanted people to spare no expense. Now, I don’t to exaggerate and make it seem like people who birthday parties I attended were receiving Bugatti, Lamborghini, McLaren, etc….. These weren’t rich people just normal typical everyday common folks. The point that I’m trying to make is that all of this just seemed weird.

What is a Birthday???? 

According to Etymology Dictionary

Birthday (n.) Late 14c., from old English by rddaeg, “anniversary or celebration of one’s birth” (at first usually a king or saint); see birth (n.) + day. Meaning “day on which one is born” is from 1570s. Birthnight is attested from 1620s.

Annual celebrations of one’s birth is prevalent across the world today. Many people enjoy having their own “special day.” When it comes to celebratory occasions like birthdays. It does not matter if your Christian or not, in church or not, saved, sanctified filled with the holy spirit or no. It feels good to be the recipient of gifts and attention. Through placing significance on a birthday often behavior observance is self-gratification, self-indulgence, drunkenness, drugs, lewd, lustful acts, greed, pride, etc….. I could never understand how an individual is celebrating turning a year older. These activities have nothing to do with being appreciative of being alive to see another year. People get high, drunk, and act as lustful as Pepe le Pew throughout the week. Most people live for the weekends anyway. Once the clock turns 4:30 p.m. on a Friday, people clock out of work and head to the bars, clubs, and liquors stores saying ” that was a long work week. I need to turn up.” So, what’s the significance of participating in death activities on that “special day” which is supposed to symbolize life.

Origin

So where do birthday celebrations come from??????

We can trace birthday celebrations back to Ancient Egyptians. When a Pharaoh celebrated a birthday it was not in reference to their birth into the world, but being birth as a “god.” In Egypt the Pharaoh represented the Gods on the Earth. The Ancient Egyptians believed that their Pharaoh is the god Horus, son of Ra, the sun god. Once a Pharaoh died it was believed that he would be united with the sun and then a new Pharaoh, his son would rule the earth as the god Horus. To the Egyptians the Pharaoh was both a spiritual leader and government official. The Pharaoh had the responsibilities for both the land and the people’s well-being. It was a Pharaoh’s responsibility to make laws, establish justice, be a mediator between the Gods and people (rituals), collect taxes and defend the land of Egypt from foreigners (war).

Due to the responsibilities of a Pharaoh it is not difficult to see why Egyptians reverenced and honored their king. In simpler terms the Pharaoh is viewed as the embodiment of a God in human flesh. (Egyptians influenced by astrology attached to birthday’s gods and goddess using charts and planets. Recording, tracked as a way to foretell events, enlighten people and issues).

Note: Genesis 40:20 Third day is Pharaoh’s B-day which death occurred. Mark 6:17-28, Matthew 14:6-12, Job 1:14-19 all of these days death occurred.

Greeks

Birthdays were used as a form of protection due to the Greeks adopting the Egyptian ways of celebrating gods and goddess. The Greeks believed that birth day of a human welcomed demonic spirits. They would lit candles as a way to have light in the darkness.

Happy Birthday Artemis

The Greeks would make round cakes to honor Artemis, the goddess of the moon. The lit candles on the cake represented the glow of the moon, and the smoke from the candles carried their prayers and wishes to the Gods who lived in the skies.

Note: (Blowing out the candles and making a wish is another way to send messages to the Gods)

Who is Artemis

Artemis was the daughter of Leto and Zeus, and the twin of Apollo. She is the goddess of the wilderness, the hunt and wild animals, and fertility. She is the helpers of midwives as a goddess of birth. In one legend, Artemis was born one day before her brother Apollo.

Now the Romans were the first to celebrate the birth of man. The Romans citizens would celebrate the birthdays of friends and family members. however, the government would create public holidays to honor famous citizens. The Romans would celebrate anyone turning 50 years old and they would receive a special cake (flour, wheat, grated cheese, honey, olive oil), now only men would have their birthday celebrated. The women were not celebrated until the 12th century.

Public Service Announcement: Warning, Warning, Warning

Birthday Parties: Long ago people believed that on a person birthday they could be protected by good spirits and harmed by evil spirits. So to protect a person on their birthday friends and families gathered to protect him/her. Thus we have party gatherings.

 

But wait there’s more. People have attached magic to the date of birth for people. Such things as people can wear their birthstone as a sign of good luck.

Why we say Happy Birthday to You: Family and relatives say it for good wishes and this is supposed to protect us from evil spirits.

Noise Making: This was added to birthday celebrations as a way to fend off evil spirits. Usage of party snappers, popping balloons, horns, firecrackers, gift giving, etc…. were used to fend of evil spirits.

Note: Magical Spells giving birthday greeting was a way to active a spell for protection to shield them from evil spirits.

Birthday celebrations are rooted deep in paganism. To Satanist they view this day as a day to celebrate yourself as a God because they believe that they are deified as one. That’s a lie, Ye are not Gods but humans. We have no power to create this world, nor man. We have no power to establish divine order. We are humans not The Heavenly Father. As humans we have a beginning and a end. We Shall not be deified on the level of our creator. That is the same thing that got Lucifer kicked out of heaven. Celebrating your birthday in my opinion is like exalting yourself above The Most High. Question, are you saying that you are equivalent, or greater than the Creator of the heavens and the earth? 

Ask questions do not sit and believe everything that man says out of his/her mouth. Research, read, investigate, search.

IT IS NOT ILLEGAL YET, BUT THEY ARE WORKING ON IT.
