EASTER: MAKING GOOD EVIL AND EVIL GOOD (Worshiping the King of Kings or the Queen of Heaven)
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20)
How have we as followers of Christ allowed such a travesty in our churches to be turning the Good of the Gospel into the Evil of this world? Well, the truth is all this perversion started in the beginning of man’s civilization and at the tower of Babel. We still have these two churches to this day and not much has changed in regards to the difference between Truth verses religion.
We choose the worldly over the spiritual because it is fun and entertaining and for our children…at least that is the argument that I hear most often about why we still allow these pagan practices to be part of our worship. I think that is the worst reason possible to delude our children into following the fables of Easter bunnies and rabbits and eggs that all stem from the Babylonian mystery religions and is the worship of Satan and not the Lord. Is that too harsh? Well, maybe that is what we need a slap in the face wake-up call!
Here we are at “Easter” time celebrating another pagan holiday as if it where somehow connected with the Truth of Christ. It is such idolatry, the same thing that was going on after the Flood and the building of the tower of Babel. I talked about, in the previous article how Cain was the “father of religion” now we will see who carried on his traditions and introduced the religious practices headed by the “father of lies”.
Satan’s strategy in the garden of Eden had been to pull God’s creation away from a pure relationship with Him by deceit and lies :
Gen.3:1-5 “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”
Now, after the Flood, he aims to unite man together in a movement that is in rebellion against God’s purposes. Nimrod wanted to build a tower to reach to heaven. Genesis 11:4 says, “And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.” Here we see a unified effort by the people of the world for a single purpose.
This purpose is the problem. They desired to make a name for themselves and storm the gates of Heaven. Their intents were pushed by the same spirit Satan exhibited at his expulsion from Heaven, and in the Garden of Eden with Eve. They desired to usurp the very authority of God. The city was named, Babel, which in Hebrew means, “to confuse.” The Babylonians preferred to use the meaning that was more acceptable to them, “gate of God.” “Babel,” is the Hebrew form, and “Babylon,” is the Greek form. Their plan was thwarted when God, with apparent use of his angels, confounded their languages.
Satan’s chosen emissary for this task was Nimrod. Nimrod is spoken of as being both a hunter and a king, but these two characteristics are incompatible. His hunting abilities were aimed at men, he hunted them to bring them under his own sovereignty and control. This is where his strength lay, not in his prowess of catching game, but in capturing men to do his own will.
Nimrod is the son of Cush who was the son of Ham. Ham of course being the son who knew his own mother and begat Canaan whom God cursed. Noah’s wife was a descendant of Cain making the offspring of the union between Ham and she almost a full blooded descendant of Cain. But that is another story for another time. I mention it here as it shows how Satan used the descendants of Cain, the father of religion, to carry out his purposes on this earth. Nimrod is the founder of both Babylon and Nineveh, the two great cities of antiquity which became, ultimately, enemies of Israel.
Nimrod married Semiramis, they had a son whom Semiramis claimed was virgin born, and they founded the mother and child cult. This was the central character of the religion of ancient Babylon, the worship of a mother and child, supposedly virgin born. You can see the clever attempt of Satan to anticipate the genuine virgin birth and thus cast disrepute upon the story when the Lord Jesus would later be born into history. So, we can see where this big lie got started, having the population of the earth worshiping the false deities of Nimrod and Semiramis ( the King of Babylon and the Queen of Heaven).
Following the death of Nimrod, his heathen form of worship was carried on by his wife, Queen Semiramis. She claimed that her husband had become the Sun God, and was to be worshiped. Some time after this, Queen Semiramis conceived through adultery and gave birth to an illegitimate son who she named Tammuz, whom she declared was actually Nimrod reborn, and that he was supernaturally conceived. However, even though Semiramis claimed to have given birth to a savior, it was she that was worshiped, not the son. She was worshiped as “the Mother of the Gods” and “the Queen of Heaven”.
Legend has it that after Semiramis died, she ascended into heaven and was returned to earth inside a large egg which fell into the Euphrates river. The egg was pushed ashore by a dove and she emerged from the egg as Astarte or Ishtar which in English is Easter! To show her gratitude to the dove she turned it into an egg-laying rabbit, all signs of fertility.
Semiramis’s greatest accomplishment was aiding her husband Nimrod in replacing the worship of God with a polytheistic system based on the stars.
Eternal truths of God were corrupted by her into a mythic cycle wherein the great dragon is depicted as the rightful lord of the universe whose throne has been temporarily usurped by One whom we can recognize as the God of the Bible. The serpent creates man in his present miserable state, but promises that a child would one day be born of a divine mother and this child would supplant God, become a god himself, and return ruler-ship of the Earth to the serpent.
This is in direct contrast to primeval astronomy formulated by Noah’s righteous ancestors before the flood. In the original this system depicted by means of constellations the story of Satan’s rebellion and the war in the heavens, his subversion of mankind, the fall of Adam and Eve, the promise of One to come who would suffer and die to relieve man from the curse of sin then be installed as Lord of Creation, and the final re-subjugation of the cosmos to God through Him.
The false gospel became the religion of the majority of the people on earth. It was and is a religious story that imitates the Truth of the Gospel written in the stars that Noah and his decedents had learned and shared. It is the fake that preceded the Real Truth. We see this being carried on throughout the Biblical record in that first born sons lost their inheritance to the second son. Examples are Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and Esau, and this shows how “first comes the natural and then the spiritual”. So as it turns out first came the “natural earthly religious system” and then the “true and righteous spiritual system”.
Ishtar (Easter): Queen of Heaven
“Ishtar”, which is pronounced “Easter” was a day that commemorated the resurrection of one of their gods that they called “Tammuz” who was believed to be the only begotten son of the moon -goddess (Semiramis) and the sun-god (Nimrod). It was celebrated at the time of the first full moon after the Spring Equinox…sound familiar? In fact that is exactly when we are celebrating Easter this year.
Semiramis became known as Ishtar and her moon egg became known as “Ishtar’s egg”. Maybe that explains a bit about how we color Easter eggs and put them in baskets. Ishtar became pregnant and claimed it was the rays of the sun-god Baal that caused her to conceive. The son she brought forth was named Tammuz.
Tammuz was noted to be especially fond of rabbits, and they became sacred in the ancient religion. Definitely how we got the “Easter Bunny” as a symbol of Easter. Tammuz was killed by a wild pig and Queen Semiramis (Queen of Heaven) told her worshipers 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…another pagan holiday that is all about the false gospel, Christmas and evergreen trees.
Semiramis also proclaimed a forty day period of time of sorrow each year prior to the anniversary of the death of Tammuz. This most certainly mimics Lent that Catholics still practice to this day. Worshipers were to meditate upon the sacred mysteries of Baal and Tammuz (The False Gospel) and to make the sign of the “T” in front of their hearts as they worshiped. Does this remind one of the motions one makes when entering a Catholic church?!!
They also eat cakes with the marking of a “T” or cross on the top .
What Did God Say About The “Queen Of Heaven”?
“The children gather wood, the fathers kindle fire, and the women knead dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven; and they pour out drink offerings to other gods, to provoke me to anger.”(Jeremiah 7:18-19 RSV)
“The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead the dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink-offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger. Therefore thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Behold, mine anger and my wrath shall be poured out upon this place….”(Jeremiah 7:18-20)(ASV)
Because Ishtar proclaimed that Tammuz was killed by a pig, that a pig must be eaten on Ishtar’s Sunday. This may be why ham seems to be the favorite food to serve on this pagan holiday. Also, it explains, to me a least, why churches have Sunday services. But that is another post another day. What is important at this time is to see the truth from these pagan lies. 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!!
These customs of Easter honor Baal, who is also Satan, and is still worshiped as the “Rising Sun” and how many churches have “sunrise services” on Ishtar’s Day and face the rising sun in the east. Do we think that Easter sunrise services are beautiful? Here is what God has to say through the Prophet Ezekiel. Ezekiel had just been shown, in vision, idol worship among professing people of God:
“And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD’S house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshiped the sun toward the east.
Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose.
Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.”
This Sunday millions of people will be doing this exact thing on Easter morning during a sunrise service, standing with their faces toward the east, as the sun is rising, in a service of worship which honors the sun god and his mythical idolatrous consort, goddess Ishtar! Yes, all these deceived so called Christians will be practicing the identical form of the ancient sun worship of the sun god Baal! This is an abomination to the Lord!
I have to say at this point, this example of Easter is a perfect example of what I am talking about with these posts…the difference between the Truth and religion and how it has permeated every aspect of the Gospel and the church. We must remember that the word “antichrist” really means a false imitation that looks like the real thing…so close to the truth that it is hard to tell them apart, and no one will until they seek for the answers. Be an “over comer” and overcome these traditions of men that promote the worship of the Queen of Heaven , and start to worship in the Spirit and Truth of the KING OF KINGS!
How Easter infiltrated the Church
First of all, Jesus and his apostles foretold of a great falling away from the truth on the part of the great majority of those who were preached the Gospel. A falling away from the faith once delivered as to the Thessalonians in 2Th.2:7 where Paul stated: (2Th 2:7) “For the mystery of iniquity doth already work”. Paul was referring to the very “Chaldea Mysteries”, of which Easter and Christmas were the two chief festivals.
Secondly, although Jesus said the gates of hell would never prevail against His church, yet it is prophesied in the New Testament to be the “little flock”…never as a great, large popular universal church! Therefore, there are two churches described, one the great and powerful universal church, a part of the world actually ruling in it’s politics over many nations, and united with the “Holy Roman Empire”. But where then is the true church?
The true church of God is pictured in prophecy as the “little flock”! The New Testament describes this Church as continually persecuted, despised by the large popular churches because it is not OF this world or its politics, but has kept itself unspotted from the world!!
So it is “Mother Church” the one that carried on the pagan traditions of Mother and Child Worship and actually worships Mary (mother of Jesus) as the “Queen of Heaven”! This church is the Holy Roman Catholic Church and it is celebrating all the traditions of men and is ruled by Satan. A man called a Pope who declares himself God on earth…sounds like Satan to me.
It is this false worship that carried evil into the world and although Satan was totally defeated by Jesus and his system of worship destroyed in Jerusalem in 70AD, Satan’s antichrist spirit still lives in all those who carry on under his banner and worship the Sun God and the Queen of Heaven and keep doing so without finding out the Truth.
I guess it is really true when the Lord tells us there really isn’t anything new under the sun. Nothing much has changed and yet that small flock will inherit the earth and that small flock grows all the time when each of us takes the time to find out for ourselves the reality of the Truth and worship the KING OF KINGS.
The Lord is calling us out of this worldly church when He says “Come out of her (Babylon) my people!”
Glory Be to the Lord of Lords!
JESUS IS ALL AND EVERYTHING!!!
