Easter Sunday is a Babylonian, pagan holiday which idolizes the fertility, sex goddess, Ishtar aka Astarte aka Easter who is Nimrod’s widow, Queen Semiramis. On Easter Sunday, 70 virgins are impregnated. The following Easter, the 3-month-old infants are sacrificed to Ishtar and eggs are dipped into the blood. This explains the ritual why eggs, which are symbols of her fertility, are dyed or painted on Easter. And the bunny rabbit that multiplies like crazy is a token of her sexuality. When you dress up to celebrate this day and say, “Happy Easter”, you are worshiping Ishtar the fertility, sex goddess. Easter has NOTHING to do with King Jesus (Jesus Christ from the Geek).
Throughout the years, paganism, denominational religion, politics and plain ol’ deception have crept into the doctrine of King Jesus. Today’s western gentile churches are deceiving God’s people unto destruction by these lies. Christians think they are glorifying God by wearing flashy clothes and being puffed-up on Easter Sunday. This sounds more like vanity and pride to me. Jesus rebuked the Pharisees of His day for wearing flashy robes (Luk. 20:46) and praised the Apostle John as the greatest person who dressed like a bum (Luk. 7:24-28). God hates Easter.
Good Friday is another lie that isn’t even in the bible. How can you get three days and three nights from around 5pm on Good Friday to around 5am on Easter Sunday? The most you will get is 1 1/2 days. They had to get King Jesus off of the cross before the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which began at sunset on Passover, because the Jewish leaders did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Feast (John 19:31). If they took Him down and placed Him in the tomb before sunset Wednesday, then our King could have rested peacefully for 3 whole days before getting up at sunset Saturday.
The truth is The Feasts of The LORD are God’s High, Holy Days (Lev. 23:1-44) that King Jesus has/will fulfill. He was crucified on Passover, buried during The Feast of Unleavened Bread, resurrected on The Feast of Firstfruits and has sent His Holy Spirit on Pentecost (The Feast of 50 Days). When He comes back, He will:
- Rapture the remnant of the elect, Mat.24:22, 1 Thes. 4:16-18 (what remains of the 144,000 of the 12 tribes of Israel that the Beast hasn’t killed yet towards the end of the Tribulation), on The Feast of Trumpets. The anti-Christ would have done away with the Church by the first 3 1/2 years of the Tribulation. See ‘His Name is Jesus, He is Coming Back! The Last 7 Years‘
- Atone for the sins of the Nation of Israel and they will accept Him as The Messiah (The King) on the Day of Atonement. The world-ruling anti-Christ is against Jesus, Jews and Christians. When he starts persecuting the Jews, they will cry out to Jesus and He will fight for them by the second half of the Tribulation.
- Split the Mount of Olives with His feet and He will dwell on earth among us as our King at the Holy City Jerusalem on The Feast of Tabernacles (Zech 14:1-11), just like when God dwelt among us in a Tabernacle and the Israelites dwelt in tents in the desert. All of the nations will go up to Jerusalem to worship King Jesus every year on this Feast throughout Jesus’ millennial reign (Zech. 14:16-20).
During the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt, each family was to select a perfect lamb without blemish and sacrifice it. Then they were to sprinkle its blood on the doorframe to cause the Destroying Angle to Passover and not kill the first-born of that house. The Israelites were commanded to never forget this day by celebrating it every year (Ex. 12:1-14).
Know Your Roots
God has started out with Israel who has done a wonderful job of preserving His living oracles. His gifts and His call are irrevocable (Rom. 11:29-32). The gentiles have been grafted into the branches, not the supporting roots, of Israel at the cross (Rom. 11:17-21, 24-27). There is no “Gentile Entrance Gate” to the New Jerusalem Holy City. The New Testament did not fall out of the sky. It is the continuation of, and constantly refers to The Old Testament (Judaism minus the Oral Law), which shall by no means pass away until all have been fulfilled (Mat 5:17-20). When you don’t teach the fundamental, Hebrew Roots of Christianity, you allow Christians to believe stories like:
Jesus was a clean-shaven, black man with woolly, kinky hair. He was born on Christmas day, died on Good Friday and was resurrected on Easter Sunday. The church that He has founded has been granted licension (license to sin) through grace. She has replaced Israel and heaven has replaced Jerusalem. Since He has done away with The Old Testament and the Sabbaths, it is O.K. to worship pagan gods on pagan holidays.
The way that Israel would recognize The Messiah (The King) is that He would fulfill all that has been written about Him, especially The 7 Feasts that Israel has been rehearsing for thousands of years. King Jesus has fulfilled The Passover Feast by laying down His life, on the very day and hour of Passover, as the sacrificial Lamb of God to save the world from destruction (John 1:29, John 19:28-30, ). Anyone who applies Jesus’ blood over his/her life by faith will be saved.
As believers in King Jesus, you do not have to observe Passover like the Jews do. However, since it now represents to us the Love of God when He sent His perfect Son to suffer and die for our sins, who we owe our life, is reason enough to do everything possible to glorify our King on this anniversary. Dressing up for Ishtar and telling your kids pagan stories of an Easter bunny that is coming to bring Easter eggs dipped in blood, is probably idolatry. At the very least try to keep the day holy because it is a High Sabbath onto our King. God does not have a problem giving us the things we pray for. Can we offer up obedience and the sacrifice of our heart’s desires to make Him happy?
This year, Passover begins at sunset on April 11th and lasts until sunset April 12th of 2017. The Feast of Unleavened Bread immediately follows at sunset on April 12th through sunset April 19th of 2017. The first and last days (4/12, 4/19) are holy unto God according to Michael Rood’s Corrected Hebrew Calendar. Compare this to Easter Sunday (April 16, 2017 on the Gregorian Calendar) and the traditional Passover/Unleavened Bread Feast (sunset April 10 – sunset April 18, 2017 on the Hebrew Calendar).
Note: Passover falls on the fourteenth day of the first month of the year. This is called the month of the Aviv. It is calculated by observing the maturity stage of barley in Jerusalem. If the stage of barley is at two weeks before it is ripe, then that month is the month of the Aviv, or else Aviv defaults to the next month (April). It makes sense because the barley is needed, a couple of days after Passover, for the Firstfuits offering. Pagan Easter falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the vernal equinox. These two holidays sometimes coincide, but they can also be weeks apart.
When we recognize Passover, we honor The Father and exalt The Son high by remembering He was the sacrificial Lamb of God without blemish whose blood saves us from destruction. I wish you Happy salvation from destruction because His blood causes it to Passover us or simply, “Happy Passover.”
