Christians Observe Easter Before Obelisk Sun God

by David on March 27, 2015

‘Christians’ will once again be observing a SUNrise service in front of the Washington Monument, which is an obelisk. It represents the SUN god Ra. It represents SUN worship. It ultimately represents Satan.

Sunrise Easter service in front of the Washington Monument

Christians have been conditioned to observe a holiday that is based on the pagan worship of the goddess Ishtar, the fertility goddess. Think bunnies and eggs.

And to make it worse, they are doing it in front of an obelisk, which is a phallic symbol.

Easter was created by the Popes of the Roman Church. They did this to replace God’s Holy Feast Day of Passover, the day that the Messiah died to pay for our sins; and the Holy Feast Day of First Fruits, when Messiah’s resurrection was the first fruits of the righteous.

In vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men. You leave the commandment of God and hold to the tradition of men.” Mark 7:6-9

The Church of Rome is the antichrist Beast of Revelation.  They don’t want people to follow God’s Holy Feast Day’s, which tell the whole story of our Messiah’s redemption of mankind.

Christians are going to have a lot of explaining to do on judgment day.

Good morning David,

I’m glad that we agree that Easter is a pagan holiday and that it should be observed.
When I look at Acts 12:4 I not only look at the KJV of the Holy Bible but I also do research on the Greek as well. The Greek as you mention before is the word πάσχα pascha (pas’-khah) aram. 1. the Passover (the meal, the day, the festival or the special sacrifices connected with it) [of Chaldee origin] KJV: Easter, Passover.

I also mentioned that the Passover is only one day and it’s before the days of unleavened bread. I don’t need to look in the KJV to verify this fact because the other versions mentions the days of unleavened bread as well. I’ll use the ESV as an example here.

Acts 12:3-4 English Standard Version (ESV)

3 and when he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded to arrest Peter also. This was during the days of Unleavened Bread. 4 And when he had seized him, he put him in prison, delivering him over to four squads of soldiers to guard him, intending after the Passover to bring him out to the people.

Even the NIV which is missing more than 64,000 words still says in verse 3 that it was during the days of unleavened bread so it couldn’t have been Passover that Herod the king was waiting for to be over. Let’s look at and see that first is the Passover and then the days of unleavened bread last for the next 7 days.

2 Chronicles 35:17
English Standard Version
And the people of Israel who were present kept the Passover at that time, and the Feast of Unleavened Bread seven days.

So if we examine Acts 12:1-4 we know that it couldn’t have been Passover since it was already the days of unleavened bread.

Acts 12:1-4 English Standard Version (ESV)

James Killed and Peter Imprisoned
12 About that time Herod the king laid violent hands on some who belonged to the church. 2 He killed James the brother of John with the sword, 3 and when he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded to arrest Peter also. This was during the days of Unleavened Bread. 4 And when he had seized him, he put him in prison, delivering him over to four squads of soldiers to guard him, intending after the Passover to bring him out to the people.

So what was he waiting on if the true Passover had already occurred? Whatever it was according to G3957 (Mickelson’s Enhanced Strong’s Greek and Hebrew Dictionaries) G3957 πάσχα pascha (pas’-khah) aram. 1. the Passover (the meal, the day, the festival or the special sacrifices connected with it)
It was [of Chaldee origin] and the KJV says Easter and all the others say Passover
which is impossible if you believe God and his word.

I hate beating a dead horse but the truth will set us free!

In Christ my Savior I live,

Randy

Good morning Randy 🙂 It’s funny that you previously stated to me “I know that you want to be right,” but here you are commenting again to prove that you are right. 😛

Strong’s Numbers reference simply lists the many ways that a Greek word is used in the KJ, so it describes pasha as KJV: Easter, Passover.

So all Strong’s is doing is showing that the KJ has used the word pasha to say both Passover and Easter.

If the King James had translated Acts 12:3-4 as ‘passover’ then Strong’s would not have the word ‘easter’ in the explanation.

So Strong’s is not a valid proof.

The valid proof is simply the meaning of the Greek word. I use J.P Green’s Interlinear Bible, which translates the word as ‘passover’.

From Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible:
After the passover. Perhaps there never was a more unhappy, not to say absurd, translation than that in our text. But, before I come to explain the word, it is necessary to observe that our term called Easter is not exactly the same with the Jewish passover. This festival is always held on the fourteenth day of the first vernal full moon; but the Easter of the Christians, never till the next Sabbath after said full moon; and, to avoid all conformity with the Jews in this matter, if the fourteenth day of the first vernal full moon happen on a Sabbath, then the festival of Easter is deferred till the Sabbath following. The first vernal moon is that whose fourteenth day is either on the day of the vernal equinox, or the next fourteenth day after it. The vernal equinox, according to a decree of the council of Nice, is fixed to the 21st day of March; and therefore the first vernal moon is that whose fourteenth day falls upon the 21st of March, or the first fourteenth day after. Hence it appears that the next Sabbath after the fourteenth day of the vernal moon, which is called the Paschal term, is always Easter day. And, therefore, the earliest Paschal term being the 21st of March, the 22d of March is the earliest Easter possible; and the 18th of April being the latest Paschal term, the seventh day after, that is the 25th of April, is the latest Easter possible.

Wycliffe used the word paske, i.e. passover; the Geneva Bible very properly renders it the passover. The Saxon Earten, Eartne, Eartno, Eartna, and Eartnon are different modes of spelling the name of the goddess Easter, whose festival was celebrated by our pagan forefathers on the month of April; hence that month, in the Saxon calendar, is called Easter month. Every view we can take of this subject shows the gross impropriety of retaining a name every way exceptionable, and palpably absurd.

From Coke’s Commentary on the Holy Bible: Herod intended after the Paschal Lamb was eaten, and the seven days festival quite finished, to bring him out to the people, and gratify them by putting him to death, and that publicly. During the festival the Jews used to spend their time in such mirth and festivity, that prisoners were commonly released, rather than executed. But notwithstanding all their zeal about rituals, they could submit to be concerned in the vilest immoralities. See chap. xxviii. 16. Instead of after Easter, the Greek would more properly be rendered after the passover.

The Feasts of Passover and Unleavened Bread were intertwined, so the Early Church associated them as the same event. Herod was waiting until the end of Passover, the end of the 7 days of Unleavened Bread, to take action against Peter.

Leave the dead horse alone, and just agree to disagree. There certainly are much bigger issues that face our Church Age.

Grace and peace to you in Christ’s name,
David

Hello David,

If it Easter was at the Council of Nicea like you admit to knowing, Christians should not celebrate it in so called Christian churches.

Passover is on one night of the year and if they, the Jews are celebrating the feast of unleavened bread then that means that Passover has passed. So how in the World could Acts 12:4 be considered Passover?

Isn’t it true that you prefer the NKJV of the Holy Bible? If that statement is true then your using a Bible that has a ‘666’ emblem on it and it’s used on Witchcraft books and other pagan books, emblems and material as well. I try my best to stay away from anything that’s associated with evil or deception and you should too since end-times-deceptions is suppose to be your area of expertise.

I say pray about it and ask to be filled and led by the Holy Ghost, I do and I’m certainly a completely different since being born again. I detest the things I did before that point in time. If a church celebrates Easter or Christmas then I stay away from it. Most of those church members are a lost bunch of people and you can tell by their works. I’m not saying that I am perfect by any means but the one who abides in me is perfect.

1 John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

Have a great day, I think I made my point and I hope you at least agree that we should celebrate the pagan Holiday Easter.

In Christ my Savior I live,

Randy

Thank you for your comment Randy 🙂 The point of this post that you’re commenting on is that Easter is a pagan day, so I definitely agree with you about that. At the Council of Nicea, they forbid following God’s Holy Feast Days.

Here’s a study called The Holy Feast Days Of God Deception, which discusses how the Roman Church replaced the Holy Feast Days with the pagan holidays of Easter and Christmas. http://christianitybeliefs.org/end-times-deceptions/the-holy-feast-days-of-god-deception/

I reference the KJ, Young’s Literal Translation and an Interlinear Hebrew/Greek Bible. I understand what you’re saying about the symbol on the NKJ, that just makes no sense to have it there.

Thanks for sharing your insight, for iron sharpens iron.

Grace and peace to you in Christ’s name,
David

Hello again David,

I know that you want to be right but you are definitely wrong about the issue. Easter was celebrate as early as 1500 years before the Crucifixion. Even Jeremiah 7:18 shows the Lord God’s anger over their worship to the queen of heaven.

We don’t want to wait until judgement to resolve this issue. I have many more references and proofs that Easter is a pagan holiday that’s been celebrated well before the Virgin birth of Jesus.

What do you have against the truth David? Satan certainly is deceiving many people and God knows the truth. If God wanted us to celebrate Easter or Passover then he would have told us to do so.

2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

I certainly hope you come to the truth before it’s too late. There are enough false prophets all over the place and I wouldn’t want you to be counted among them.

Thanks,

Randy

Thank you for your comment Randy 🙂

Worshiping the Queen of Heaven is not the same thing as observing Easter. The worship of Ishtar, Cybele, etc. happened throughout the year, whereas Easter is a one-day event.

I get that Ishtar had been worshiped for many years, and that it forms the basis for the pagan day of Easter. But it was not called Easter in the Roman Empire during Herod’s life.

The pagan holy day of Easter was created in 325 A.D. at the Council of Nicea. So to say that Herod was referring to Easter is wrong. You just can’t see it because your KJ-only mindset blinds you to the truth. I certainly hope you come to the truth.

Yes, I believe so David,

Ah, but I say the KJV is correct and the YLT got it wrong! Read through the following article and you’ll see what I mean, hopefully:

Thank you for your comment Randy 🙂 I understand where you’re coming from…. a KJ-only point of view, which may be biased, because if they translated it incorrectly, it invalidates the concept that the KJ is a perfect translation.

I would contend that Passover and the seven-day Feast of Unleavened Bread are intertwined, as Passover is the preparation day for the first Day of Unleavened Bread. Passover is the start of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, so Acts is merely speaking of the feast of Unleavened Bread when it says “after Passover”.

Aside from that, the pagan holy-day of Easter was not created until the 4th century by Emperor Constantine, so Herod would not have been observing Easter. So the KJ translators misrepresented it, as King Herod never observed Easter.

Grace and peace to you in Christ’s name, David

Hi David,

YLT must have changed since you last looked. They got it wrong here:

Acts 12:4 Young’s Literal Translation (YLT)

4 whom also having seized, he did put in prison, having delivered [him] to four quaternions of soldiers to guard him, intending after the passover to bring him forth to the people.

Thank you for your comment Randy 🙂 The point was that the KJ got it wrong, as they used the word “Easter”; and that the YLT got it right, because it used the word “Passover”. So you just affirmed my point. Am I missing something? Grace and peace to you in Christ’s name, David

Isn’t it recorded that Herod celebrated Easter during Yahusha’s time here? Acts 12: 1-4 ( after the time of Yahusha on earth. )

Thank you for your comment 🙂 The King James translator’s put ‘Easter’ in Acts 12:4, when it should read as ‘passover’. In the Greek it is ‘pascha’ which means the Passover. Pascha appears 27 times in the KJ New Testament. 26 times they translated it as Passover and only in Acts 12:4, did they translate it as Easter. The New King James translators got it right. The Young’s Literal Bible got it right. Keep learning and growing! David

Ezekiel was shown the true condition of the religious leaders – the shepherds of Israel, at the Temple. When God instituted the levitical priesthood, these appointed men were to teach the people bewtween what was clean and unclean; holy and unholy. This is what is required from God’s shepherds who lead God’s people.
Ezekiel saw abominations happening before his eyes in the vision, and each one worse than the previous. God said He was going to destroy the whole city, but first a mark had to be put on the few people of God who were moaning and shrieking – ‘sigh and cry’ for all the abominations that are done.
After that was done, then the angels went through the city and slew without pity those who were indifferent, or participating in the abominations, no matter who they were.

Paul says the Jew first then the Gentile, whether for honour or dishonour, glory or shame. We must cry out to God for all the wickedness that is taking place in His house (hold of faith). Judgement begins at the house of God…He is nor respector of persons.
May God have mercy.
