Easter – Is It a Christian festival?

Easter is the main Christian event of the year, isn’t it? Or is it, in reality, like Christmas, just another heathen celebration with the cracks of lies and deceit papered over it by the men of the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion i.e. Papists and Protestants alike?

Furthermore, what have bunny rabbits, eggs (chocolate or otherwise) and hot cross buns, got to do with Yashua Messiah’s (The Lord Jesus Christ’s) sacrificial death and resurrection? What do these silly symbols represent and do, other than insult, trivialise and actually continue the mockery that Yashua Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ) endured at the hands of those who abused Him, before and whilst hanging on the stake?

Is Easter Biblical? Let’s check it out and see. Fortunately, the dreadful word ‘Easter’ is found only once in the King James’ Version:

Acts 12:3-4 (KJV) And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.) And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers [16 soldiers] to keep him; intending after Easter [Passover] to bring him forth to the people. (Square brackets mine)

Here we have all the evidence we need to know that Easter is a religious addition to The Holy Scriptures. A quick look up in Strong’s Concordance will tell us plainly that the word here was originally ‘Passover’. We also have evidence to support that, in Acts 12:3 Then were the days of unleavened bread – the Jewish Holy Day Feast which followed the Passover. We need to remember that Yashua Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ) was the Passover Lamb and He was sacrificed at Passover – the last Passover. Please note, all other uses of the word ‘Passover’ in the KJV are written as ‘Passover’, twenty eight times in all and heathen Easter is not mentioned again.

Easter is a heathen festival based purely and simply on fertility rites and reproduction – the fertility of the spring season through the warming sun and the beginning of a new agricultural year. A time when, and where, man places all his hopes in a plentiful growing season and an increase in his live stock. This is why rabbits and eggs feature in such a big way. The May Pole, around which children dance, represents an erect penis – a phallic symbol. The sum total meaning of all this symbolism is the worship of the creation, rather than worship of the Creator. None of it has anything to do with Yashua Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ) – not one jot of it.

Easter has its origins in the heathen religions of Mesopotamia. The Babylonians, Assyrians, Phoenicians and Egyptians all worshipped pagan fertility deities: Ishtar, Astarte and Eostre.

Easter eggs and their origin can be traced back to Ancient Babylon. From there we get the mythical story of the goddess Astarte who allegedly came down from heaven and deposited a large egg in the river Euphrates from which she magically appeared. So why has this heathen mythical nonsense been allowed into the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion? Easy, wherever the original purveyors of the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion went i.e. people like Augustine to Britain (circa 600 AD) and Patrick the slave trader to Ireland, teaching their satanic Papist non-gospel, they just absorbed other religious festivals and customs into their own. By doing this they gained thousands of ‘converts’ and remained popular by condoning the continuation of these meaningless heathen creation worshipping activities. We must always remember that the Devil is not divided; he may display himself in a myriad of ways so as to deceive, but he only has one plan and one aim – the destruction of Yashua Messiah’s (The Lord Jesus Christ’s) Assemblies – The Elect and ultimately all of mankind, especially the people of Shem (The Anglo-Saxons and Celts).

Here is another thing, why does Easter always move around and land on different dates each year, when Passover lands on the same date each and every year? Easy, one is a counterfeit and the other is the original. The thing is, are we, as followers of Yashua Messiah, supposed to keep either of these festivals which are really just ritualistic in nature? If they are regulated, which in many cases they are, they become a law unto themselves? This is one of the very things Yashua Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ) came to do away with – The LAW i.e. laws and rituals which undermine the Spirit of Freedom under Grace and Yashua Messiah’s sacrifice. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 11:

1 Cor 11:25 (KJV) After the same manner also He took the cup, when He had supped, saying, This cup is The New Testament (New Covenant) in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

Under Grace we are now free to break the bread and drink the wine whenever we wish, any day of the week, as long as we eat and drink it worthily – with respect. If it is your desire to celebrate one special day a year on the real anniversaries of His death and resurrection then go ahead but, you had better make sure it’s not Easter ‘cos that isn’t the right day nor is it the right date.

Now this is a Truth, Easter has caused us to lose sight of the original event – Passover, which was a shadow of Yashua Messiah’s redeeming sacrifice. The blood of the sacrificial lambs was smeared or daubed on the posts and lintels of the Israelite’s houses. This happened whilst they were slaves in Egypt and the angel of death passed over them. They were redeemed or saved by the lamb’s blood whilst the Egyptians first born were all slaughtered. Easter has no connection with this event at all – none whatsoever!! Am I saying go and join in with the Jews and keep Passover? No, a thousand times no!! The grace of Yashua Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ) has saved and redeemed you from all that. All we need to do is remember He lives with us through His Holy Spirit all day and every day if we are Born of God (Born Again). We remember, too, what He did for us in His death and resurrection every day of our lives as well, not just once a year.

Here is another Truth; when and wherever the Romans conquered other peoples and civilisations in the expansion of their polytheistic believing Empire, they always incorporated the conquered people’s religions, religious deities and customs into their own belief systems. The only exception to this policy was if, and when, they came across True Believers and followers of The Way – Yashua Messiah. In this case their policy turned quickly to ruthless persecution, often to death, for these brave and faithful followers of Yashua Messiah. Furthermore, when the unholy Roman Empire replaced the former militaristic Roman Empire, the policy of absorption of heathen religions continued – nothing changed – it was business as usual.

Once you have studied my other articles, you will then realise that Sunday is not the Lord’s Day. It never has been; it is sheer Babylonian/Roman religious hocus-pocus and humbug. Sunday is what its name suggests, the day for worshipping the sun and Saturday is for worshipping Saturn i.e. Saturnalia. If you are Born of God (Born Again) then everyday is a Sabbath Day, because you should have entered into Yashua Messiah’s eternal Sabbath Rest.

Finally, if you are planning going to ‘church’ this Easter, why not do yourself a Spiritual favour and give it a miss? You never know, if The Father is calling you to His son Yashua Messiah it could be the first day of your life as a free of religion, Born of God (Born Again), son or daughter of God under His Glorious Grace.
