The Truth About Easter
THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT EASTER
Most people around the world are getting ready to celebrate Easter. Most are totally ignorant of the ORIGIN or beginning of Easter. Yes, Jesus resurrected from the grave but Easter was around long before that. It was a celebration of paganism and the SUN GOD BAAL. The pagan Roman Catholic Church MERGED Easter and Christmas celebrations with the resurrection and Birth of Jesus Christ around 300 AD. And the church hasn’t DISCERNED these pagan practices yet. THIS IS A MAJOR DECEPTION OF THE DEVIL – A CLEVER WAY TO WORSHIP HIM!!!!! Ever wondered about the BUNNY RABBIT, EASTER EGGS, etc. They have NOTHING to do with the Resurrection of Jesus Christ!!!! [READ ON!!! And be ENLIGHTENED!!!]
The word “Easter” is a translation of the Greek word – Astarte or the Mesopotamian – ISHTAR, or the Hebrew form – Ashtoreth. These words are names for the pagan Goddess of “fertility.” The Old Testament is replete with warnings from God, to His people, to stay clear of the Goddess of Ashtoreth. You may remember that this was one of the major sins of Gideon’s father…he had an altar built to this Goddess. God instructed Gideon to destroy it. Sadly, this same altar still exists in many churches as EASTER, complete with the celebration of “fertility” with bunnies and eggs, baskets and flowers. The resurrection of Jesus often takes a back seat in many “Christian” homes and churches to the celebration of the “spring season” through the Goddess of “Easter” or Ishtar.
For example, although mostly celebrated by Christians, the word “Easter” does not even appear in the original manuscripts of the Bible. (Some translations, however, do incorrectly use the words “Passover” and “Easter” interchangeably.)
And careful research shows that Easter is merely a tradition based on ancient fertility rites. According to the Encyclopædia Britannica , the name itself is linked to Astarte, the Phoenician fertility goddess.
THE BUNNY and THE EGG
The rabbit is well known as a SEXUAL symbol of fertility. In various parts of the world, religions which developed from Babel also associate the rabbit with periodicity, both human and lunar (Egypt, China, etc.). As you may remember, the Mother Goddess Semiramis (Easter) is associated with the Moon. In other words, the Easter bunny symbolizes the Mother Goddess. Annual Spring time fertility rituals are associated worship of the Mother Goddess and Tammuz, the reincarnation of her husband.
Most children and families who color or hide Easter eggs as part of their Resurrection Sunday tradition have NO knowledge of the origin of these traditions. Easter egg activities have become a part of Western culture. Many would be surprised and even dismayed to learn where the traditions originated. The egg was a sacred symbol among the Babylonians. They believed an old fable about an egg of wondrous size which was supposed to have fallen from heaven into the Euphrates River. From this marvelous egg – according to the ancient story – the Goddess Astarte (Easter) was hatched. And so the egg came to symbolize the Goddess Easter. The idea of a mystic egg spread from Babylon to many parts of the world. In Rome, the mystic egg preceded processions in honor of the Mother Goddess Roman. The egg was part of the sacred ceremonies of the Mysteries of Bacchus. The Druids used the egg as their sacred emblem. In Northern Europe, China and Japan the eggs were colored for their sacred festivals. The egg was also a symbol of fertility; Semiramis (Easter) was the goddess of Fertility. The Easter egg is a symbol of the pagan Mother Goddess, and it even bears one of her names.
EASTER SUNRISE SERVICE
Many of you will be getting up early on Easter Sunday morning to attend your lovely sunrise service. Listen! God was showing the Prophet Ezekiel the sins of His people in a vision—a prophecy for today! “Turn thee yet again,” said God, “and thou shalt see greater abominations than these [Ezekiel had just been shown, in vision, idol worship among professing people of God]. And he brought me [in vision] into the inner court of the Eternal’s house, and behold . . . between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with . . . their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east. Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing . . . that they commit the abominations which they commit here? . . . Therefore will I deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them”! (Ezekiel 8:15-18.)
Easter sunrise services are ABOMINABLE to God!!!
It is the identical thing millions are doing every Easter Sunday morning—the sunrise service—standing with their faces toward the east, as the sun is rising, in a service of worship which honors the sun god and his mythical idolatrous partner, goddess Easter. Yes, deceived into believing this is Christian, millions practice every Easter the identical form of the ancient sun worship of the sun god Baal! Throughout the Bible this is revealed as the most abominable of all idolatry in the sight of the Eternal Creator
HE THAT HATH AN EAR, LET HIM HEAR!!!!!
