The Fallacy of Easter
Originally, Easter was called the Feast of Feasts, Sunday Pasch by many nations in different tongues such as: Greeks, Rumanians, (Pascha), Italians (Paqua), Spaniards and Portuguese (Pascua), French (Pasqua), Norwegians (Paskir), Danes (Paaske), Gaels (Casc). The festival of which you read about in the so-called scriptures during the time of the Messiah Jesus was quite a different festival from the one that is now observed in the Roman (and protestant) churches, and at that time it was not known by any such name as Easter. It was called Pascha, or the Passover. That festival Originally agreed with the Israelite’s Passover and was not idolatrous.
Each year millions of Christians world-wide faithfully observe the so-called holy-day, Easter with Easter bunnies, Easter Eggs, Easter Bonnets, Etc.
For many years, you have foolishly followed the traditions of men and thus, you have become a victom; prisoner to the lies, deceptions and falsehoods. Now the time ha come for you to get to the root of the lies, so that you will be able to loosen the chains that are binding your soul.
Easter, Its origin and meaning
Easter, like many other pagan holidays that are celebrated by Christians and Non Christians alike, found its origin in the Babylonian Empire ruled by Nimrod. The word “Babylon” is derived from the Greek word “Babel”, meaning; confusion, chaos, vanity and emptiness or nothingness. Babylon was the first major civilization founded by Nimrod and his followers. Today, New York city is the capitol of the new Babylonian Empire. It was during the Fourth and Fifth centuries that the pagans of Western Europe were accepting the newly popular Christianity by the hundred and thousands. They did not hesitate to carry their old customs and traditions along with them, so along came the trinity, Christmas, Easter and many other pagan practices that people today attribute to the Messiah Jesus. Nowadays, the pope of the Roman Catholic Church is symbolic of Nimrod. Once they became Christians and started to celebrate this Feast, which comes in the spring. They kept the old name of their spring Goddess and the feast became known as Easter. The word Easter and the German word “Ostern” come from a common origin (eoster, Easter, Ostara, Oster), which to the norseman, meant “The season of the rising (growing) sun, The season of new Birth”. The word was used to designate the feast of new life in the spring. The same root is found in the name for the place where the Sun rises (East, Ost). The word “Easter” then originally meant the celebration of the spring sun which has its origin in the East and brought new life upon the earth. This symbolism was then transferred during the Christian era to the meanings of the Easter you all know today, which is supposed to represent the new life of the Messiah Jesus, or what the Christians call, his Resurrection.
The word Easter was injected into the church long after the time of the Messiah Jesus. The original word is Pascha meaning passover and in every place, exactly the same word is used in the original form. It always means passover and many other translators faithfully render this verse in Acts 12:4 As: “Intending after the passover to bring him forth to the people”. Here for example is the Latin version.
“Quem cum aprehendisset misis in cargerem tradens quattor quaternionibus militum custodire eum volens post Pasha producere eum populo”
The Easter Rabbit
The Easter bunny found its origin in pre-Christian fertility Folkkore. It was contributed to American folkore by the Pennysylvania Dutch. The custom introduced by the German settlers who began to arrive here in the 1700’s was in the Pennysylvania country the greatest of childhood pleasure. Hares and rabbits are the most prolific animals, thus they became a symbol of fertility or abundant new life in the spring season. It is believed that this four-footed creature was once a bird, and that Eostre, the dawn Goddess (known in Sanskrit as Usra), made the transformation. “Catching the Hare” was a custom at the festival of the Easter Goddess. The hare was an emblem of Aphrodite, the Goddess of love, in Greece. It is believed that she may have also been connected with the corn spirit because, in many parts of Europe, the last sheaf of corn to be cut is called “The Hare”, and the cutting is sometimes called “Cutting the tail of the Hare”. The Easter Bunny had never had religious symbolism bestowed on this festive usage, though it is sometimes said that its white meat is a symbol of purity and innocence.
In American Folklore, the Easter egg is the production, not of some mystical bird, but of a rabbit or hare. In many sections of Germany; the Easter Bunny was believed to lay red eggs on Maundy Thursday, (The Thursday before Easter, observed in commemoration of the last supper of Jesus, also called holy Thursday); and eggs of other colors the night before Easter Sunday. In Texas during the observance of the East fire, the children are told that it is the Easter rabbit who burns wild flowers to make dyes for the Easter eggs. In Yugoslavia, the hare makes a nest in the stable and the young children go on Easter Morning to find the eggs concealed in the hay.
