Easter is an annual celebration observed throughout the Christian world. There are absolutely no verses in the Bible that authorize or endorse the keeping of an Easter celebration. Further, the Bible says nothing about the practice of observing Lent, dying Easter eggs, having Easter egg hunts, baskets of candy, bonnets – and so on. Easter has long been known to be a pagan festival. America’s founders knew this.
The Satanic Ritual of Sacrificing Children
Every year, the priests of Ishtar would impregnate young virgins on an altar dedicated to herself and her husband*. The children were born on Christmas (!!!), and the next year they were sacrificed in the Easter's Sunday at the sunrise service. The priests would take Ishtar's eggs and dye them in the blood of the sacrificed children.
Our traditional Good Friday to Sunday celebration however only accounts for Yeshua’ being in the heart of the earth for two nights and one day. Were the facts of Yeshua’ death, burial, and resurrection purposely distorted? Learn who is not telling the truth -- and why!
The modern church recognizes the resurrection day of Yeshua as being on Sunday. Let's really see which day Yeshua was resurrected.
Matthew 20:40 For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
John 11:9 Yeshua answered, “Are there not twelve hours of daylight? If anyone walks in the daytime, he will not stumble,because he sees by the light of this world.10 But if anyone walks at night, he will stumble, because he has no light.”…
Here is something to ponder. How can you get 3 days and 3 nights or 72 hours from Good Friday to a Sunday morning resurrection? If you do the math, He would have been raised on Monday. The modern church’s logic for changing the Saturday Sabbath to Sunday does not hold true as Resurrection services should should be held on Monday afternoon.
Most Christians point to Romans 14 as proof text on changing the Sabbath day, however you will not find the word Sabbath written in the book. God only gave the seventh day a name , all the rest of the days were were numbers. If you look closely you will see they are talking about eating and receiving one who is weak in the faith, but not to dispute over doubtful things. There is at least 10 times it mentions eating. The context here is fasting, the verse is telling them it doesn't matter which day you chose to fast. Yeshua says when we fast, not if you fast.
Romans 14:5 One-person esteems one day above another; another esteem every day alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind.
Matthew 6:16-18 “And when you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that their fasting may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, that your fasting may not be seen by others but by your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.”
John 10:35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken:
"Yahweh has today declared you to be His people, (ISRAEL) a treasured possession, as He promised you, and that you should keep all His commandments; and that He will set you high above all nations which He has made, for praise, fame, and honor; and that you shall be a consecrated people to the Yahweh, your Elohim, as He has spoken."
The Disciples Kept the Sabbath 85 Times in the book of Acts.
Acts 20:6-7 But we sailed from Philippi after the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and five days later joined the others at Troas, where we stayed seven days. On the first day of the week we came together to break bread. Paul spoke to the people and, because he intended to leave the next day, kept on talking until midnight. Verse 7 states, in the English, that the apostles came together on the first day of the week, thus implying to many that the Sabbath is now on the first day of the week
Since this verse is used to defend Sunday as the new Sabbath day, let’s look at the Greek verse, where verse 7 says “first day of the week”. The Greek says, actually... mia ton sabbaton The Greek word mia means “one,” not “first” ... it is the Greek word ‘protos’ that means “first,” which is not present in the text.
We cannot make it say something that it does not ... It actually translates as “one of the Sabbaths”. Plural. Not “First day of the week”. Singular.”. This is a huge translation error that has been openly accepted as truth over the years.
