“WHY REPLACE THE PASSOVER WITH ‘MAN-MADE EASTER (PAGAN TRADITION)?”

“WHY REPLACE THE PASSOVER WITH ‘MAN-MADE (PAGAN) TRADITION?”

Mark 7:8

“YOU HAVE LET GO OF THE COMMANDS OF THE MOST-HIGH AND ARE HOLDING ON TO THE TRADITIONS OF MEN”

If you aren’t asking your pastors questions now, you’ll have yourself to be blamed soonest…

“RAIN ON YOUR EASTER PARADE: SINCE ISHTAR WHOSE ALTERNATE NAME IS SEMIRAMIS, WAS THE MOTHER AND WIFE OF NIMROD, THE PRIEST AND KING OF BABYLON WE CAN TRACE A DIRECT LINE BETWEEN THE WORD EASTER WITH THE ORGINS OF PAGAN RELIGION. ACCORDING TO LEGEND, WHEN NIMROD DIED HE PROCEEDED TO BECOME THE SUN-GOD, WHILE SEMIRAMIS (EASTER) PROCEEDED TO HAVE AN ILLEGITIMATE SON, TAMMUZ, WHOM SHE CLAIMED WAS THE SON OF HER DEFILED NIMROD. SHE APPARENTLY CLAIMED TAMMUZ WAS THE PROMISE SEED OF THE WOMEN AND DEMANDED WORSHIP FOR BOTH HERSELF AS WELL AS TAMMUZ. WITH ONLY SLIGHT EFFORT ONE CAN IMAGINE THAT THE MOTHER SOON WAS WORSHIPPED AS MUCH OR MORE THAN HER BASTERD SON. AS THE LEGEND CONTINUES AN EGG OF WONDROUS SIZE FELL FROM HEAVEN ONE DAY AND LANDED IN THE RUPHRATES RIVER, SOME EQUALLY WONDROUS FISH MANAGED TO ROLLL THE EGG TO SHORE WHEREUPON SEVERAL DOVES DESCENDED FROM HEAVEN AND INCUBATED THE REMARKABLE FIND. SOON POPPED ISHTAR (OR SEMIRAMIS) THE FERTILITY GODDESS OF EASTER. THE EGG EVENTUALLY BECAME THE UNIVERSAL SYMBOL OF FERTILITY, AND AS SUCH CAN BE TRACED BACK IN PAGAN CULTURES WORLDWIDE. PREDICTABLY IT ALSO BECAME THE SYMBOL OF THE GODDESS HERSELF. THEREFORE AT THE VERY LEAST WE HAVE TRACED BOTH THE NAME “EASTER” AND AN ELEMENT OF ITS CELEBRATION THE ISHTAR EGG, TO BABYLON. MOST SIGNIFICANTLY BOTH THE EGG AND ITS HATCHLING PREDATES THE RESURRECTION OF THE SAVIOUR BY MORE THAN TWO THOUSAND YEARS.”
