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.

 

1466389688766

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.

Imagine

A angel, sent to your mother notifying her that she would give birth to a baby. You are born of a virgin birth. Three wise men follow the east star to Bethlehem bearing gifts. The gifts symbolize holiness and kingship. You are the lamb of God, son of man. You were sent to earth to nullify Adams sin.

How would you feel?

December 25th is your day, but you are not celebrated. You are not the face of your nativity. The world reverence a mystical man that appears once a year bearing gifts.

What would you think?

Story

Nimrod he is the son of Cush and great grandson of Noah. Nimrod is a “mighty hunter before the lord and the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar (Genesis 10: 9-11). Nimrod organized the rebellion from God that is still dominating the world. Nimrod was worshipped as a God, amongst the lands that was his kingdoms and he married his own mother, whose name is Semiramis. Shem whose the uncle of Nimrod and Shem’s co-conspirators captured Nimrod, killed him and cut his body into pieces. Shem told his crew to take the pieces of Nimrod’s body and give them to the kingdoms under his rule. Shem crew did what he commanded them to do. The purpose was to show that Nimrod was no God. For what God can be killed. Shem warned all of Nimrod’s followers to turn away from their idols and worship God.

So how was Nimrod survived????

A female, her name is Semiramis (Mother/wife of Nimrod). Semiramis was able to locate all the pieces of Nimrod’s body except for one. She was not able to find his phallus (male reproductive organ). Semiramis told her followers that a evergreen tree sprang overnight from a dead tree stump. This would symbolize new life of Nimrod. Semiramis also said that Nimrod would visit the evergreen tree on the day of his birth and leave gifts under it. Nimrod’s birth is December 25th.

 

Roman Empire

In Rome they celebrated a pagan deity named Mithra who is a Sun-God of the Persians. Nimrod, Cush and Semiramis ruled in other nations under different names. So Mithra is another name for Nimrod/Tammuz in Rome. I do not want anybody confused, but they went by many different names. All you need to keep in mind is that this is Mother Goddess and Sun-God worship. Many religions, nations and cultures have these same stories of these same people from the bible, just under different alias. That is how you know that there is validity to this historic evidence. No Mithra was not born December 25th and no Mithra was not born of a virgin birth. In fact Mithra was born from a rock. However, the Roman-Empire adopts pagan religions and practices of other empires and turn them into their own. So Mithra under Rome became known as Sol Invictus (Latin: “Unconquered Sun”) on 25 December AD 274, the Roman emperor Aurelian made this a celebration of the god Saturn (Nimrod’s rebirth) and this would be the rebirth of the sun-god during the winter solstice. This winter holiday would be known as Saturnalia. This holiday was celebrated from December 17th-25th. The festival of Saturnalia had public sacrifices, feasting, gift-giving, singing, also Saturn was depicted throughout Roman Temples carrying wreaths and having a pileus.

 

Picture: Saturn wearing a wreath on the left and Mithra wearing the pileus on the right.

Emperor Constantine made a decree that Christianity will be the new faith of the Roman Empire. Emperor Constantine renamed the pagan holidays and gave them a Christian names. Thus changing Saturnalia to Christmas and giving the holiday new meaning. Saturnalia was renamed to the Mass of Christ and then Christ Mass, which became shortened to Christmas. Christmas was declared the birthday of Jesus of Nazareth and on this day pagan ritual sacrifice of the “body and blood of Jesus.” 

Christmas Customs

The Christmas Tree

The Christmas tree is a representation of Nimrod’s rebirth as the sun-god. The Evergreen Tree is a phallic symbolizing a erect penis. The ornaments and tinsel representing the testicles and semen.

 

They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.

Jeremiah 10:4-6

 

Sitting Children on Santa’s lap

This practice originates from the worship of Molech/Baal and the passing the of children through fire.

Sacrifice to Moloch Psalm 106

Gifts under the Tree

The practice of placing gifts under the tree is a form of worship and veneration of the sun-god. By placing gifts under the base of the tree is the altar to the sun-god.

Wreaths

The twisting of branches into a circle was a symbol of the sun.

 

Mistletoe

Held in high regard by the Celtic druids as sacred plant, is a symbol of immortality, love and liberation. The juice of the berries resembled semen it was looked at as sperm of the oak tree god and had great power. Also the mistletoe symbolized peace and joy to the druids. If enemies met each other under the mistletoe they were to put down their weapons and form a truce. Mistletoe is associated with the Norse God Frigga, goddess of love.

Santa Claus – (Sinter Klaas or “Sinterklaas, EL, Cronos, Odin, Thor)

“It should be noted though, that the figure of
Santa Claus is really a non-Christian one
and is based on the Germanic god Thor
who rode on a chariot drawn by goats named
Cracker and Gnasher.”
– St. Nicholas’ Day; By Shonnie Scarola
“Thor was the god of the peasants
and the common people. He was represented
as an eld­erly man, jovial and friendly,
of heavy build, with a long white beard.
His element was the fire, his color red.
The rumble and roar of thunder were said
to be caused by the rolling of his chariot,
for he alone among the gods never rode on
horse­back but drove in a chariot drawn by
two white goats called Cracker and Gnasher.
He was said to live in the ‘North­land’
where he had his palace among icebergs.
The fireplace in every home was especially
sa­cred to him, and he was said to come down
through the chimney into his element, the fire.”
– -Francis X. Weiser,
Handbook of Christian Feasts and Customs
(New York: Harcourt, Brace and World, Inc., 1958)
“Thor was fighting the giants of ice and snow,
and thus became the Yule-god. He was said to live
in the “Northland” where he had his palace among
icebergs. By our pagan forefathers he was considered
as the cheerful and friendly god, never harming
the humans but rather helping and protecting them.
The fireplace in every home was especially sacred
to him, and he was said to come down through the
chimney into his element, the fire.”
-(Guerber, H.A. Myths of Northern Lands.
New York: American Book Company, 1895, p. 61)

We have to go back a bit find the pagan legend and myth associated with Santa. One of the first places to start is with the Germanic people and the Norse God Odin. The 13th Century Poetic Edda is a complication of stories and poems from Scandinavian history, some as early 985AD. In this work and from Snorri Sturluson’s Prose Edda we learn about Odin riding an eight-legged horse named Sleipnir, that can leap great distances. At Yule, Odin leads a great hunting party through the sky in celebration. This story gives rise to comparisons of Santa and his 8 reindeer flying through the sky.

In some traditions of Odin’s Yule time ride, children could place their boots near the chimney filled with treats for Sleipnir and Odin would reward them for their kindness with food, candy or gifts. The tradition still continues Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. In other Germanic countries the practice has been replaced with hanging stockings.

On the Celtic side, the origins of the Holly King are little dubious, but there are links to the Great Kings of Ireland and the legend of the Holly King. With going too far into the history of Ireland, Between 8000-7500 BCE the Ice bridge between Scotland and Ireland collapses. Tribes of around 50,000 to 60,000 hunter gatherers are now “trapped” in Ireland. The population dwindles to about 10,000 as animals and food run out sustaining themselves in a variety of methods, including the consumption of mildly poisonous Holly berries. Around 6500-5500 BCE the Cuilleain (“Holly” (holy) men step onto the scene. Also known as the “Shining Ones” of Wicklow Hills, these men save the dwindling population from barbarity and are the first priest kings to preach self-wisdom, organized religion for humanity and salvation. Through their efforts to save their people, some of these early Priest Kings sacrifice their lives in battle. From these early priest kings, the concept of the Holly King who saved his people from the depths of the winter ice is born.

Through these early mythical legends, The Holly King begins his battle with his twin brother the Oak King at the Summer Solstice. As the year is wanning the Holly King prevails and begins preparations to save and maintain his people through the cold winter. In order to accomplish his mission, he travels the land to hunt, fish and harvest. Transporting these life saving items in a wagon or sled pulled by eight deer. These ‘gifts’ of life are provided to all his people, and in exchange they provide care and comfort to his team of deer.

There is also suggestion that the 8 reindeer plays pagan significance. Just follow along here, it comes together in the end. Even in those ancient times the number 9 was an important spiritual number. 9 witches often made up a coven. 9 feet was the diameter of a perfect circle. And maybe that’s why “the whole 9 yards”; which refers to the 9 yards of material for a Great Kilt worn by many Celtic highlanders is so important. When we think of Santa we think of Santa and his 8 tiny reindeer. And most people focus on the 8 reindeer. Well now add Santa. 9 souls traveling through the winter sky to bring presents for the rebirth of the year. It’s a stretch, but there are those who believe this is where the 8 reindeer got their start.

The Holly King lived way up North, where he could survive in the cold during the reign of his brother in the spring and summer. The Oak King who needed the warmth to survive, lived in the warm forests in the south and falls into sleep while his brother of the cold reigns over the world during the fall and winter months.

Ancient pagan deities such as Befana (a gift-giving Roman goddess); the Holly King (a Celtic Winter god); and Thor and Tomte (Norse gods who, respectively, rode across the sky in a chariots drawn by goats and gave presents to children at the end of the year) have all fed into the Santa legend.

In many of these early pagan legends, presents are given to children or young families to represent abundance and fertility. After all this is the time of the rebirth of the Sun. Presents were exchanged to honor that rebirth and to give wishes or hopes to the person receiving the gift for abundance and fertility in the coming year. Now don’t assume that ‘fertility’ means giving birth to a child. Remember these people had to live off the earth and the crops they grew. They didn’t have grocery stores on the corner to trot down to and buy food for their families. So in most cases the fertility was for the coming growing season.

Santa didn’t become a Christian figure until the 3rd century with Nicholas, the Bishop of Myra. He lived on what is now the coast of Turkey. Nicholas suffered for his faith, was exiled and imprisoned. After his release, Nicholas attended the Council of Nicaea in AD 325. He died December 6, AD which became a festive day to honor this Bishop and his life. It’s still a day recognized in many European countries as St. Nicholas Day. His parents died in an epidemic while Nicholas was still young. Obeying Jesus’ words to “sell what you own and give the money to the poor,” Nicholas used his whole inheritance to assist the needy, the sick, and the suffering. Many stories are told of his generosity, and caring. Especially his protection and care of children. Because of his life work, he became synonymous with Santa Claus. Though many of the stories retold today cannot be verified and are likely just oral stories that were created to entertain children and to further incorporate pagan legends with Christian figures.

It’s impossible to point to the one real ‘first’ Santa, because Santa is a culmination of mythological legends and stories. But from many of the earliest pagan stories and legends we can find pieces of the Santa legend in our Celtic and Scandinavian mythologies.

Gift giving

This was popular during the celebration of Saturnalia. The Romans gave each other gifts for luck.

Colors Green and Red

These colors are to represent fertility.

Yule Log

The log, a phallic symbol that is cut from a oak tree. The yule log is decorated with holly mistletoe and evergreens to represent the intertwining of the god and goddess that is reunited on this day.

 

Star

The Star is not the star of David nor is it the star that was in the sky of Jesus birth. The star represents Siri, the dog star, it is a five pointed pentagram.

untitled

The nativity of Jesus Christ was a lie popularized by Emperor Constantine. He wanted to unite the pagans and Christians together. Emperor Constantine declared that all pagan holidays are now Christian holidays. So you are the Messiah sent to the “lost sheep of the house of Israel” Matthew 15:24. You were sent to this earth to nullify Adam’s sin. You are being used to popularize the ancient religion Sun Worship to the world. So instead of people keeping your Father laws, statues and commandments, the world is more verse in pagan ideologies and practices. So tell me, how would you feel? What would you think? 

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 

Revelation 12:9:12
