Picture of the Pagan Holiday Easter

By Mystery-Babylon.org

Ah, Easter… a day honored by most in contemporary Christianity as celebration of the resurrection of Christ. Yet, “the vast majority of ecclesiastical and secular historians agree that the name of Easter and the traditions surrounding it are deeply rooted in pagan religion.”[1] Really? How could this be? What would any of the ways of God have to do with the paganism of ancient Babylon; and beyond? And, if these roots were really so, why does it still continue today?

If the Easter story only stands as a remembrance of the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ, then it is symbolic of his return from death; a release of the devil’s hold on the ancient world. At this time of Easter, Jesus was supposedly accredited as the agent behind the renewal, or return, of the sin-filled world Adam helped sink us all into – into something better. Now, Jesus provided another way – giving the populous a new way to salvation.

Yet, Easter, as we’ll soon see, now seems to be tied more to things which look a lot more pagan, overall: the cycle of the seasons; the welcoming of spring; the fertility of the land; etc. Why these associations? What does it all have to do with nature? We’ll now see that Easter could, in actuality, be the celebration of a “resurrection,” “rebirth,” or “return” of someone… but who, exactly? Let’s see…

One source claims that: “The word Easter is of Saxon origin, Eastra, the goddess of spring, in whose honour sacrifices were offered…”[2]

Wow… the “goddess of spring?” Wasn’t this holiday supposed to be about the son of God? As we dig deeper into this subject, we, first, need to ask ourselves: who just might this goddess be? Would any woman, or goddess, have anything to do with the death and resurrection of Christ? And, if she did have some kind of role, here, why would she be related to spring time? We now see another, more popular meaning of Easter: it comes from the ancient goddess of pagan Babylon! “In Babylonia… the goddess of spring was called Ishtar.”[3] And, we also see that: “Ishtar was actually pronounced “Easter” in most Semitic dialects…”[4] So, what would be this day of Ishtar?

“Ishtar”… was a day that commemorated the resurrection of one of their (ancient Babylonian) gods that they called “Tammuz”, who was believed to be the only begotten son of… the sun-god.
(“The Pagan Origins of Easter”, n. d., p. 1)[5]

Seems to be more to it all, besides just Ishtar. In the above, we see that there were two other gods, here, at least; one was even known as the “only begotten son of…” Doesn’t this sound familiar to many? Jesus was known as the only begotten son of God. But who was this Tammuz? As well, who was the sun-god?

    The Time Period of Jesus Crucifixion – The Bread and Leavening at Christs Supper – The Rising of Jesus Christ,our Lord God and Saviour [John 20:28]
    .
    The Jewish day began at sunset and finished at the following sunset.
    .

    .The following is worth keeping in mind:- Matthew 24:22 “And except those days were shortened, not any flesh would be saved.” Acts 2:27 “…… because You will not leave My soul in the grave [Strongs 86] nor will you give Your Sacred Man to see corruption…….”
    .
    It is noteworthy that the normal Sabbath and a High Sabbath both fell on the same day – the day after Jesus’ crucifixion as Jesus was crucified on Preparation day.
    .
    Jesus yielded up His Spirit at about the 9th hour after there having been darkness come over the land from the 6th hour [noon] till the 9th hour [3pm]. It appears from the fact that “the many women……. watching from afar off” that it was daylight when Jesus yielded up His Spirit.”
    .
    It must be noted that according to custom in those times,whatever occurred in part of a day was counted as if it were a day.
    .
    So, if the normal understanding of events are taken –
    .
    At about the 9th hour Jesus cried with a loud voice unto the Father and yielded up His Spirit to Him. From that time until sunset on friday = 1day,
    . to sunset on saturday = 2 days and 1 night
    . to sunset on sunday = 3 days and 2 nights
    . to sometime before dawn = 4 days and 3 nights
    .
    But Jesus said that He would rise again in 3 days?
    .
    Deuteronomy 16:5-7 says, “You may not offer your passover within any of the gates which the Lord thy God giveth thee, [6] but in the place which the Lord thy God shall choose to place His name, there you shall offer the passover at even, about the going down of the Sun, in the season that you came out of Egypt and you shall roast and eat it in the place that the Lord thy God shall choose, and shall return on the morrow, and go unto thy tents.” 1. Day of Preparation, 2. Sundown feast, 3. Sunup,return to tents and rest.
    .
    To get 3 days and 3 nights Jesus in the ordinary understanding must have yielded up His Spirit after sunset. But Luke says that He gave up the Spirit after the 6th hour [noon], when darkness came over all the land to about the 9th hour [3 pm]. See 1 John 2:8-11. So, to stick to the sunset to sunset for a day rule, then technically the day of leavening/Preparation Day had been cut short and the day of unleavenings/Passover Feast had been brought forward by 6 hours. Leavened bread was allowed in ones house until the going down of the Sun which began the Passover Feast day. See, Numbers 12:17,Genesis 17:12-13, Matthew 13:33, Hebrews 13:33, John 5:46
    .
    So, from the sunrise to sunset at noon – the 6th hour = 1 day ,
    .
    From sunrise – 9th hour to sunset 12th hour = 2nd day
    .
    From sunset day 2 to the next sunset = 3rd day
    .
    Psalm 16:10, Acts 13:35. “Wherefore he said also in another place, Thou will not suffer thine Sacred Man [Holy One] to see corruption.”
    .

    Amos 8:9
    .
    New King James Version (NKJV)
    9 “And it shall come to pass in that day,” says the Lord God,
    “That I will make the sun go down at noon,
    And I will darken the earth in broad daylight;
    .
    Jesus technically was still hanging on the ‘stauros’ [a stake or pole as set upright, Strongs 4716; “I” is the first letter of Jesus and “X” is the first letter of Christ] in the daylight of unleaven day, but by which time according to law the passover lambs were to have been roasted and eaten. The light of the world – Jesus,it seems, died as the Sun was rising, and rose from the dead on the first of the [new] sabbath. Malachi 4:2, Acts 13:47, John 19:21
    .
    The law that no flesh was to remain the night through to the morning was broken. The 3 hours of darkness from noon to 3pm can be counted as one night and the 3 hours of sunshine from 3 pm till sunset are 1 day. As reported in Mark, sunset was approaching when Joseph of Arimethea asked Pilate for the body of Jesus.
    .
    Luke 24:1 – 2, “But on the first of the sabbath [sunday] while still very early they came to the tomb carrying spices which they prepared……..and found the stone having been rolled away from the tomb.”
    .
    Technically then Jesus’ flesh was left hanging on the post [Strongs 4716] for one night and one day. Psalm 16:10, Acts 13:35. “Wherefore he said also in another place, Thou will not suffer thine Sacred Man [Holy One] to see corruption.”
    .
    From the “Book of Adam and Eve” or “The Conflict of Adam and Eve with Satan” translated from the Ethiopic by S.C.Malan, “The death of Adam took place at the end of nine hundred and thirty years that he lived upon the earth; on the 15th day of Barmudah after the reckoning of an epact of the Sun, at the 9th hour. It was on a friday, the very day which he was created, and on which he rested; and the hour at which he died, was the same as that at which he came out of the garden.”
    .
    From the same book, The gold, incense and myrrh originated from Adams “Cave of Treasures.” “…………and nought of them shall perish until the Word of God, made man shall come; when Kings shall take them, and shall offer to Him. Gold in token of His being King; incense in token of His being God of heaven and earth; and myrrh in token of His passion [death]. Gold also, as a token of His overcoming Satan, and all our foes; incense as a token that He will rise from the dead, and be exalted above things in heaven and things in the earth; and myrrh, in token that he will drink bitter gall; and feel the pains of the grave from Satan. [hades or hell = grave, Strongs Concordance 86]
    .
    A little leavening leaveneth the whole lump” – Jesus is the new leaven. Under the old covenant both leavened and unleavened bread were used in offerings to God. While unleavened bread was more frequently used, leavened bread was prescribed for “Thank or Peace offerings” [Leviticus 7:13], and for the important ‘Shake or First Fruits of the Day of Pentecost” Leviticus 23:16 – 17]. See also Hebrews 12:20 – 29 re the shaking of heaven and earth. Keep in mind that Jesus in the New Testament is called “the First Fruits [1 Corinthians 15:23]. In the Supper Jesus referred to the New Covenant [Hebrews 8:6 – 13]. A few days before He had told the chief priests and Pharisees, “The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation

    The Crucifixion of Christ on April1 [ April fools day ]
    .
    And know thou also that Christ dwelt [Fol. 43b, col. 2] in Mary, and suffered in Nazareth, and was born in Bethlehem, and was laid in a manger, and was carried by Simeon in the Temple of Solomon, and was reared in Galilee, and was anointed by Mary Magdalene, and ate the Passover in the house of Nicodemus, the brother of Joseph of Râmethâ, and was bound in the house of Hannân, and was struck with a reed in the house of Caiaphas, and embraced the pillar and was scourged with a whip in the Prætorium of Pilate, and on Friday, on the first day of Nîsân (April 1 ), on the fourteenth day of the moon, our Redeemer suffered.

    MISHNA I.: There are four New Year days, viz.: The first of Nissan [ April 1 ]is New Year for (the ascension of) Kings and for (the regular rotation of) festivals; 1 the first of Elul is New Year for the cattle-tithe, 2 but according to R. Eliezer and R. Simeon, it is on the first of Tishri. The first of Tishri is New Year’s day, for ordinary years, and for sabbatic years 3 and jubilees; and also for the planting of trees 4 and for herbs. 5 On the first day of Shebhat is the New Year for trees, 6 according to the school of Shammai; but the school of Hillel says it is on the fifteenth of the same month. 7

    Judah married a Canaanite woman and in Talmudic law racial identity is taken from the mother. In about 126 BC the Edomites were integrated into Judea by John Hyrcanus and became Judaised.

    And in the six hundred and first year of the life of Noah, on the first day of the month of Nîsân (April 1) the waters had dried up from the face of the earth. And in the second month, which is Îyâr (May), wherein Noah went into the Ark on the twenty-seventh day, on the holy first day of the week (Sunday), their going forth took place; and he and his wife went forth, and his sons and their wives went with them. Now, when they went into the Ark they went in in separate companies, Noah and his sons [in one company], and his wife and their wives in another company; and the men did not know the women until they went forth from the Ark. And all the wild beasts, and all the cattle, and all the feathered fowl, and all the creeping things went forth from the Ark on the first day of the week.

    Pages 102-3 “The Two Babylons”, “…..Before our Lord was either conceived or born, that very day now set down in the Popish calendar for the “Annunciation of the Virgin” [Lady-day] was observed in Pagan Rome in honour of Cybele, the Mother of the Babylonian Messiah. Now, it is manifest that Lady-day and Christmas-day stand in intimate relation to one another. Between the 25th of March and the 25th of December there are exactly nine months. If, then, the false Messiah was conceived in March and born in December, can anyone for a moment believe that the conception and birth of the true Messiah can have been so exactly synchronised, not only to the month, but to the day? The thing is incredible. Lady-day and Christmas-day, then, are purely Babylonian.”
