Dear brothers and sisters,
In part 1 of this series, I explained how Christmas derives from paganism. Easter has the same pagan foundations. However, in this portion, I will not go over its origins in great lengths as Father really wants me to focus on the admonition I need to deliver. Please take heed! Do not dismiss these messages without first taking the time to research these things for yourself and inquiring of the Holy Spirit for His guidance and understanding.
What I will do for you is add a link to just one of the videos I have reviewed to give you some insight pertaining to Easter. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gve6xq7Cj0w&list=PL5Ea1RHP4Jqq1isqL-smQa4zc9FecPRHM&index=4. Feel free to do extra digging of your own.
I confess that for many years I blindly celebrated these pagan holidays. My parents had celebrated them with their families, and in turn, taught me to do the same with mine. All the Pentecostal churches we attended over the years also participated in these festivities and quite frankly it had never crossed my mind to research these things for myself until a few months ago when led by the Holy Spirit. I had no idea that holidays such as Christmas and Easter originated with Nimrod and that what we actually celebrated were pagan gods. Brothers and sisters, flee from these abominations! I have to tell you that when the Lord opened my eyes to the truth of what I was worshiping I was sick to my stomach. I asked myself, ‘how could I have been so blind and ignorant to never even consider looking these things up instead of following the crowds?’ I was heartbroken of having caused my Heavenly Father grief. And I was even angrier at myself for promoting and teaching these traditions to my children. Needless to say, that I have had to humbly go before Father, seek His forgiveness, repent from my evil doing and instruct my children otherwise.
Now I bring you this Word, as one who has stood many times in the council of my Heavenly Father and having been anointed as one of His mouthpieces to bring His messages to His people. I stand before you to deliver this Word in the hope that you, as His people, will choose life TODAY and turn away from those things Father considers evil in His sight.
This admonition is for all my dear brothers and sisters, who are still celebrating the pagan holidays of Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Halloween, and so on. Again, please do your research. I have learned that even birthdays trace back to the goddess Artemis. When Father says ‘come out of her my people’, He intends that we come away from the way the world worships; that we stop following paganism which is committing adultery with other gods. Do not allow your temples to be defiled by false teachings, doctrines and traditions.
If you hold a leadership role over Father’s flock, such as pastors, teachers and leaders, you have a huge responsibility of leading the congregation in the ways of the Lord. In order to do so, you must be born again, be Holy-Spirit filled, have an intimate relationship with the Lord and lead a life according to the Word of God. You must live out your own salvation with fear and trembling of the Lord and understand that for your every word and deed you will one day have to give account before the Almighty. It is imperative that you lead with a clear conscience and integrity and uphold ALL of the Lord’s commands. There is no room for complacency and ignorance. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more. I myself have to watch what I say and do as I will also be held accountable. Hence why I am bringing forth this admonition so that your blood will not be on my hands. I encourage you all in love, to ponder on this message and take it to prayer. If you are guilty of following and/or teaching paganism, repent. Father is merciful to forgive you, just like He did with me. But if you fail to do so, know that judgment will be upon you.
Jer.23:1-2, 19-20 “Woe to the shepherds who are causing the sheep of My pasture to perish and are scattering them!” declares the Lord. 19 Behold, the storm of the Lord has gone forth in wrath, Even a whirling tempest; It will swirl down on the head of the wicked. 20 The anger of the Lord will not turn back Until He has performed and carried out the purposes of His heart; In the last days you will clearly understand it.
Jer.23:22 But if they had stood in My council, Then they would have announced My words to My people, And would have turned them back from their evil way And from the evil of their deeds.
The Israelites, in the time of the Old Testament prophets, also struggled with the same issues. Here’s what Father had to say on the matter.
Jer. 23:13-14 “Moreover, among the prophets of Samaria I saw an offensive thing: They prophesied by Baal and led My people Israel astray. 14 Also among the prophets of Jerusalem I have seen a horrible thing: The committing of adultery and walking in deceit; And they strengthen the hands of evildoers, So that no one has turned back from his wickedness. All of them have become to Me like Sodom, And her inhabitants like Gomorrah.”
Amos 5:21-26 “I hate, I reject your festivals, Nor do I delight in your festive assemblies. 22 Even though you offer up to Me burnt offerings and your grain offerings, I will not accept them; And I will not even look at the peace offerings of your fattened oxen. 23 Take away from Me the noise of your songs; I will not even listen to the sound of your harps. 24 But let justice roll out like waters, And righteousness like an ever-flowing stream. 25 Did you present Me with sacrifices and grain offerings in the wilderness for forty years, house of Israel? 26 You also carried along Sikkuth your king and Kiyyun, your images, the star of your gods which you made for yourselves.
* Sikkuth and Kiyyun were Mesopotamian astral deities.
Prov.14:12, 16, 26-27 There is a way which seems right to a person, But its end is the way of death. 16 A wise person is cautious and turns away from evil, But a fool is arrogant and careless. 26 In the fear of the Lord there is strong confidence, And his children will have refuge. 27 The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, By which one may avoid the snares of death.
Isa.30:1 “Woe to the rebellious children,” declares the Lord, “Who execute a plan, but not Mine, And make an alliance, but not of My Spirit, In order to add sin to sin”.
On March 20/2022, the Lord led me to meditate on Psalm 78.
Psa.78:1, 5-6a), 7, 9-11, 17, 19-20 Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth. 5 For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children. 6 That the generation to come might know them. 7 That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments. 9 The children of Ephraim, being armed, and carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle. 10 They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law; 11 And forgat his works, and his wonders that he had shewed them. 17 And they sinned yet more against him by provoking the most High in the wilderness. 19 Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness? 20 Behold, he smote the rock, that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed; can he give bread also? can he provide flesh for his people?
Such insolence and defiance! Every time I read passages like this one, I wonder how the Israelites could live to see so many of Father’s amazing miracles -for instance, plagues in Egypt while remaining untouched, the parting of the Red Sea and total destruction of their enemies, manna and water in the desert – and yet their hearts were full of unbelief. And it didn’t take them long to make themselves a golden calf announcing that IT had taken them out of slavery.
And YET, we are SO MUCH worse than them!!
Yes, brothers and sisters, because it is easy for us to point fingers and wonder what was wrong with these Israelites and we fail to see the logs in our own eyes. How many times do we read not to worship other gods besides Father, the Most High, the Creator of the Universe, the One True God and yet fail to obey? We have all given ourselves over to idolatry one time or another– FULL BLOWN IDOLATRY!
You may ask, ‘how so?’ If you have celebrated (or are still celebrating) Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s Day and so on, you are partaking in paganism and worshiping Satan. Run away from these traditions, rituals. Divorce from these practices and stop attending churches that indulge in them. How many times has Father instructed us not to have any gods besides Himself? That we should worship Him alone? How many times did Father instruct the Israelites not to marry outside their own culture so they wouldn’t be drawn to serving their gods and be led astray? These rules do not just apply to them. Remember Ezra? He had all Jewish men separate from their wives and children who followed other gods so they could return to Father’s covenant. And what about Josiah? He also destroyed ALL that was attributed to idol worship once he learned the truth.
Exod.20:3-6 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
How could we allow ourselves to fall so low: to become so complacent with various winds of doctrine and never question those who promote them, especially those in church leadership? We must COME OUT OF BABYLON, that is, these wicked pagan traditions and choose to be holy, set apart for God’s purpose. Father does not approve our partaking, our worship of these traditions that have been intertwined with Christian beliefs.
The Lord is asking His sheep:
Jer.3:12b)-13 Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the Lord; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith the Lord, and I will not keep anger for ever. 13 Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the Lord thy God, and hast scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green tree, and ye have not obeyed my voice, saith the Lord.
In Leviticus 23, we are given a list of feasts that Father has instructed his people to honour. One of these is Passover. This, however, has nothing to do with pagan Easter, egg hunts and bunnies. The feast of Passover is celebrated on the 14th day of Nisan. It does not revolve around the spring Equinox as is the case with Easter. A Passover meal typically includes roasted lamb and bitter herbs to remember the night the Israelites were released from their 400-year bondage (Exodus 12). That night the Israelites also received deliverance from the angel of death who had set out to kill all the firstborn of the Egyptians. Father’s specific instructions involved applying some of the blood of the lambs over their doorposts as a sign to the angel of death to skip over their dwelling.
Of course, this feast was symbolic of what Jesus eventually did for us when He offered His life to redeem us from our slavery to sin. His blood, of the pure and blameless Lamb of God, shed as payment for our sins.
Jesus celebrated this Feast just before His death. He added the partaking of the communion which we are to do until His return. Praise Yah!! Do not confuse these sacred feasts with pagan rituals.
Easter is the celebration of Ishtar – where the name Easter derives- which is none other than Nimrod’s wife, Samiramis, the goddess of love and fertility. Do not partake in egg hunts and Easter bunnies. These are part of satanic rituals.
I will close with these verses:
1 Cor. 10:20-21 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. 21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.
Isa.66:2b)-3 But I will look to this one, At one who is humble and contrite in spirit, and who trembles at My word. 3 “But the one who slaughters an ox is like one who kills a person; The one who sacrifices a lamb is like one who breaks a dog’s neck; One who offers a grain offering is like one who offers pig’s blood; One who burns incense is like one who blesses an idol. As they have chosen their own ways, And their souls delight in their abominations.
