Easter Origin

 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our Passover  is sacrificed for us

 1Cor. 5:7 KJV.



As people of God, we need to recognize that Christ is our “Passover Lamb”:  and, although it was a normal custom that crucified individuals’ legs were broken, the legs of Christ were not broken:

Pagan Easter

Easter was an ancient pagan festival that was adopted by the Roman church and given a Christian veneer. It bears a Chaldean origin on its very forehead. Easter is nothing else but Ashtarte, one of the titles of Beltis, the Queen of Heaven. The Easter “buns”  were used in the worship of the queen of heaven, the goddess of Easter.  As early as the days of Cecrops, the founder of Athens, fifteen hundred years before the Christian era. The prophet Jeremiah takes notice of this offering when he says,

“The children gather wood, the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough to make cakes to the Queen of heaven.” ( Jer. 7:18 )

The hot cross buns are no longer offered, but eaten, on the festival of Astarte.

The origin of the Easter egg, correlating with the ancient Druids manifested an egg as a sacred emblem of their order.   In ancient times eggs were used in religious rituals throughout Egypt and Greece. Eggs were hung for mystic purposes in temples.  These sacred eggs can be traced to the banks of the Euphrates.  Classic poetry contained fables of the mystique of Babylon.  Thus, its tale was told by Hyginus, an Egyptian, connecting to the library in Rome.

The question now is: should a true believer in the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Paul celebrate Easter?

Exodus 20:3  Thou shalt have no other gods before me[.]

Exodus 20:4  Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:

Exodus 20:5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me[.]

Colossians 3:6  For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:

Colossians 3:15  And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

Colossians 3:16  Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Colossians 3:17  And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

Let’s also examine scriptures such as 1 Corinthians 6:14-17 ,7:1; 2 Corinthians 10:18-22:

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?  And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?  And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Behold Israel after the flesh: are not they which eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar?  What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing?  But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.  Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.

  1. What does it matter what day we celebrate easter? Christmas was known as Yule before Jesus, isn’t He stronger than what day we celebrate on? It is written concerning this and the seventh-day, “One man considers one day more sacred than another; another man considers every day alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind” (Romans 14:5). The verse you quoted above is concerning us in relation to the Spirit as it is written, “And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, he pours new wine into new wineskins” (Mark 2:22) and this mainly being against denominataionalism. Instead of focusing on the splinter in the holiday-authors eye, just think about how we helped take over a Pagan holiday for Jesus! Instead of putting down your’ Catholic brothers and sisters, take the plank out of your’ eye! This isn’t idolatry but the opposite: a strike to the side of satan! Thank God we have days to remind us and celebrate Who Jesus is and what He does and did! God bless you!
    In Daddy’s Love,

  2. Sabbay,

    I agree that Christmas and Easter are both overflowing with Paganism. We must not be yoked with unbelievers as the Bible clearly states. I do not believe that Christ was born on December 25th, as it remains clear that Paganism attributes such a date to the birth of the Sungod Tammuz. WE MUST NOT BE DECEIVED BY SATAN, THE ADVERSARY.


  3. Sabbay,

    I agree that Easter is Pagan, as evidenced by all the fertility symbols: ie. candy bunnies, candy eggs, easter loaves etc. We must not be equally yoked with unbelievers and additionally we must study to show ourselves approved unto God, exposing error, without compromising truth (Ezekiel 8:14, 2 Corinthians 6:14, 2 Timothy 2:15, Revelation 6:5),
