"Pagan Origin Of Easter"
part 3 of 3
Ishtar, who was now
worshipped as the "Mother of God and Queen of Heaven", continued to build her mystery religion.
The queen told the worshippers that when Tammuz was killed by the wild pig, some of his blood fell
on the stump of an evergreen tree, and the stump grew into a full new tree overnight. This made the evergreen tree sacred
by the blood of Tammuz.
She also proclaimed a forty day period of
time of sorrow each year prior to the anniversary of the death of Tammuz.
this time, no meat was to be eaten.
Worshippers were to meditate
upon the sacred mysteries of Baal and Tammuz, and to make the sign of the "T" in front of their hearts as they worshipped.
They also ate sacred cakes with the marking of a "T" or
cross on the top.
Every year, on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox,
a celebration was made.
It was Ishtar's Sunday and was celebrated
with rabbits and eggs.
Ishtar also proclaimed that because Tammuz
was killed by a pig, that a pig must be eaten on that Sunday.
By now, the readers
of this tract should have made the connection that paganism has infiltrated the contemporary "Christian" churches,
and further study indicates that this paganism came in by way of the Roman Catholic System.
The truth is that Easter has nothing whatsoever to do with the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We also know that Easter can be as much as three weeks away from
the Passover, because the pagan holiday is always set as the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox.
Some have wondered why the word "Easter" is in the the
King James Bible.
It is because Acts, chapter 12, tells us that
it was the evil King Herod, who was planning to celebrate Easter, and not the Christians.
The true Passover and pagan Easter sometimes coincide, but in some years, they are a great distance
So much more could be said, and we have much more information
for you, if you are a seeker of the truth.
We know that the Bible
tells us in John 4:24, "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth."
The truth is that the forty days of Lent, eggs, rabbits,hot cross buns and the
Easter ham have everything to do with the ancient pagan religion of Mystery Babylon.These are all antichrist activities!
Satan is a master deceiver, and has filled
the lives of well-meaning, professing Christians with idolatry.
things bring the wrath of God upon children of disobedience, who try to make pagan customs of Baal worship Christian.
You must answer for your activities and for what you teach your children.
These customs of Easter honor Baal, who is also Satan, and is still worshipped
as the "Rising Sun" and his house is the "House of the Rising Sun."
How many churches have "sunrise services" on Ishtar's day and face the rising sun in the East?
How many will use colored eggs and rabbit stories, as they did in ancient Babylon.
These things are no joke, any more than Judgement day is a joke.
I pray to God that this tract will cause you to search for more
We will be glad to help you by providing more information
and by praying for you.
These are the last days, and it is time
to repent, come out and be separate.
