Christian or pagan – the Origin of Valentine’s Day ?

cupid-3cExploring the Pagan roots of the Valentine’s Day holiday.

 

   “When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee . . . . thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations . . . for because of these abominations the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) thy God doth drive them out from before thee !”
Deuteronomy 18:9-12

     “After the doings (ways) of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do . . .and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do; neither shall ye walk in their ordinances . . . . Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you.     And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants . . . !”     Leviticus 18:1-26

     Regardless of race and religion, almost every couple in the world celebrates Valentine’s Day. In fact, it is considered the second widely celebrated event after the Christmas or Yuletide Season. Only a few people know that Valentine’s Day is originally a Catholic celebration. But there are even fewer individuals who know its earlier pagan roots.

faunus-godsThe Darkness of Valentine’s Day and its Pagan Origins

     Valentine’s Day originated from the pagan festival Lupercalia which is a celebration of fertility and purification. Lupercalia is named after Lupercus, the god of fertility and hunter of wolves in Roman mythology. It’s a 3-day event that runs from the 13th to 15th of February. But before our current Gregorian calendar, the festivity usually falls on spring season.

     The month of February is also associated with Lupercalia. Part of the rituals held during the festivities is the Februa, Februatio or Februare which literally means purification. Februa is a purification ritual performed to drive away evil spirits in the entire city or community and to ensure fertility for the spring or planting season.

     An old Roman and pagan activity observed during Lupercalia is the love lottery. In this tradition, young men are paired with women through a simple lottery system. Names of all participating females shall be placed in a jar after which, each male shall draw or pick a name that will be temporarily paired with him. The pairs will act as lovers or partners for the entire duration of the festival. This tradition was carried by the ancient Romans overseas as their empire grew.

     Another notable activity is the gathering of ancient Luperci priests at Pallupercalia-valentineatine Hills or the boundaries of the ancient city of Rome. This tradition persisted up to the time of Julius Caesar wherein the Master of the Luperci College of Priest during that period was Mark Anthony.

     During the 1st and 2nd century, the Christian or Catholic religion started to grow. Much of the Pagan cultures and traditions were also assimilated and reinvented to fit the Catholic tradition and to attract early pagans to become Christians. In 496 A.D., then Pope Gelasius declared the Lupercalia traditions particularly the love lottery as immoral. The Pope changed the love lottery tradition into a saint lottery where each young boy tries to mimic the qualities of the saint he picks all throughout the year. Pope Gelasius also declared February 14 as the feast of Saint Valentine, the patron of lovers.

The story (legend) of Saint Valentine.   Valentine was a young priest that lived during Emperor Claudius’ reign. In his desire to perform his Christian duties of administering wedding ceremonies and aiding prisoners, he disobeyed the orders of the emperor. For Claudius, men should serve the Roman army first before getting married. For this reason, Valentine was incarcerated and sentenced to death. Based on historical accounts, Valentine was regularly visited by his jailer’s blind daughter whom he later fell in love with. Before Valentine’s execution, he wrote her a note and ending it with the phrase “From Your Valentine.”

     One of the [supposed] miracles of (attributed to) Saint Valentine was the healing of that girl’s eyesight. This has also resulted to his jailer’s change of faith. Valentine’s letter to his beloved girl is considered to be the earliest Valentine’s Day card. And it’s only during the 17th century when Valentine’s Day cards were commercialized, mass produced and prefabricated.

note:   We encourage every reader to remember, that we must always share the Truth in love. A good way to begin is by offering to those we truly love, a better alternative to these ancient pagan practices, adopted by the Roman Catholic Church.  And give to your wife or husband an invitation to spend the afternoon or evening with you on another day, and such gifts as which will not pass away . . . . your life offered in the daily sacrifice of all selfish desires on their behalf.    In such a way which honours the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) our God, and our Saviour Jesus Christ.

     “And I heard another voice from heaven saying . . . . Come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the LORD . . . that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins (Babylon’s) have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities . . . !”
II Corinthians 6:17-18 and Revelation 18:4-5

     “For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, Whom we have not preached . . .”   II Corinthians 11:4

PLEASE Note:     We are sharing this video for the sole purpose to warn Christians of what the Bible has prophesied will take place just before the soon return of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ . . .

We do not in any way endorse that which is being promoted by the founders of this event . . . Especially after see that the Vatican stands hand and in hand with this movement. Please take time to read prayerfully the Scripture below, as well as the short article at the bottom which reveals Rome’s connection.

     Jesus said . . . “Father, sanctify them (make them holy, righteous) through Thy TRUTH, yea, Thy Word is Truth (verity) . . . that they all might be one, even as We are One !”   John 17:17-21
and ref: 15:1-7 and I John 2:3-6* and I John 3:22 and John 8:29

Let no man deceive you by any means . . . For that day (of Christ’s return) shall not come, except there come a falling away* (apostasy) first, and that man of sin (lawlessness, not subject to Jehovah’s law) be revealed, the son of perdition . . .

Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped (served and obeyed) . . . So that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that when I was yet with you, I told (warned) you of these things ?

For the mystery of iniquity* doth already work (ref: Isaiah 14:12-17 & Ezekiel 28:13-19): only He Who not letteth (holds back) will continue to hold back, until He be taken out of the way . . . . And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit (breath) of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming . . .

     Even Him (Christ Jesus), Whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders (ref: Revelation 13:1-18) . . . And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish . . . Because they received not the love of the TRUTH (God’s Word – John 17:17), that they might be saved . . .

     And for this cause . . . God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie. That they all might be damned (condemned) who believed not the TRUTH, but had pleasure in unrighteousness . . . !”

2016 – Pope calls for a “One World Religion !”

     “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship (obey, yield homage to) him, whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb, slain from the foundation of the world. If any man has an ear, let him hear . . . !”
     Revelation 13:8

     “When the leading churches of the United States, uniting upon such points of doctrine as are held by them in common, shall influence the state to enforce their decrees and to sustain their institutions, then Protestant America will have formed an image (likeness) of the Roman hierarchy, and the infliction of civil penalties upon dissenters will inevitably result. . . .

     The enforcement of Sunday-keeping on the part of Protestant churches is an enforcement of the worship of the papacy. . . .

     In the very act of enforcing a religious duty by secular power, the churches would themselves form an image to the beast (Revelation 13:1-18); hence the enforcement of Sunday-keeping in the United States would be an enforcement of the worship (service, homage) of the beast and his image.” –

Great Controversy, p.445-449 (1911 edition)

     “When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with spiritualism (Eastern mysticism), when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions . . .  Then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan and that the end is near !”

Satan’s Masterpiece of Deception ?

In a previous article addressing the Sunday law and its chain reactions, we focused on the sequence of final events. In this article we will be focusing on how the final scenes will come about and how Sabbath keepers will be brought onto the world stage. But before we look at this final study, there are some questions that need answers.

HOW COULD HINDUS, BUDDHISTS, HUMANISTS OR ATHEISTS SUPPORT ENFORCED SUNDAY OBSERVANCE?

     If the USA would enact a national Sunday law today, how many countries around the world would follow her lead? For example, how could Hindus or Buddhists, humanists or atheists support Sunday observance? And how supportive would the secular society in America and Europe be if they were deprived of Sunday shopping or sporting events? John prophesied that in the end time, “all the world wondered after the beast . . . ” (KJV, Revelation 13:3).

The Truth About Christmas ?

     “I charge you therefore before God, and the Lord (our Sovereign King) Jesus Christ . . . Who shall judge the quick (living) and the dead at His soon appearing . . . Preach the Word; be instant in season, and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine . . .

     For the time will come when they (the church) will not endure sound doctrine (teaching, instruction from God’s Word) . . . . But after their own lusts (carnal, worldly desires) shall they heap to themselves teachers, which have itching ears. And they shall turn away their ears from the Truth (God’s Word – John 17:17), and shall be turned unto fables . . . !”     II Timothy 4:1-4

We encourage every son and daughter of the LORD God,Almighty to seek Light from the Word of Truth, and search the Scriptures for themselves. Let us examine all that we do, and all that we call Christian in the Light of God’s Word, lest we be found futilely attempting to justify pagan practices in the name of Christ Jesus.

I have shared a few good resource sites below, and also encourage each of us to stand for Truth, regardless of what others choose to do . . .

Eleventh Hour Workers – an intern’s adventure at Little Light Studios

     “At the eleventh hour the Lord will call into his service many faithful workers. Self-sacrificing men and women will step into the places made vacant by apostasy and death. To young men and young women, as well as to those who are older, God will give power from above.
With converted minds, converted hands, converted feet, and converted tongues, their lips touched with a living coal from the divine altar, they will go forth into the Master’s service, moving steadily onward and upward, carrying the work forward to completion . . . !”                           – Youth Instructor, February 13, 1902

The LORD is not looking for talent . . . What He greatly desires is workers, sons and daughters of God, who are willing to surrender and consecrate their all . . . for His service !

The Christian, Martial Arts and Eastern Mysticism ?

Or HERE to order the series as DVD – https://littlelightstudios.tv/?s=mart…

In this 5 part series, filmed on location at Amazing Discoveries, Eric Wilson answers many of the questions which Christians are now facing, as we see the practices of Martial arts, Tai-chi, Yoga and Eastern Healing techniques being brought into, and encouraged in the church.

As a student and instructor for more than 24 years in these arts, Eric learned the secret of the powers behind the Asian martial arts, Qigong, and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Now, through these messages, Wilson seeks to share the very real spiritual dangers behind these practices; secrets which the founders and masters have long sought to keep hidden from the novice and uninitiated.

In this first message of the Dragon’s Realm series, Eric reveals how he took that first step onto enchanted ground, and how these Eastern esoteric practices found their way into the west. Practices which claim to be healing, but in reality are but a subtle deception from that serpent of old.  Revelation 12:9

Through the journey of his own experience in these arts, Wilson shares what the LORD revealed to him as He was fighting to set him free. That through these Asian philosophies and practices, Satan is seeking to control the hearts and minds of mankind. And through their subtle teachings, introduce a shadow of doubt to the Truth and Verity of God’s unfailing and Life-giving Word !

This 5 part series takes you to the very beginning, and answers those questions with which millions of Christians are now being faced. Questions like . . . Where did martial arts come from?
Who where the masters and founders of these arts?
What role did the eastern religions of Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism play in the creation and development of these esoteric art forms?
What is the spiritual “energy” attributed to their combat and healing techniques?
And from where does this power really come . . .?

Now, learn the answers from the mouth of the masters themselves. See how the dragon (Satan) is using these mystic practices to infiltrate the Christian church with spiritualism;
seeking to subtly blend Light with darkness, and Truth with lies, and preparing the whole world for his last great deception before the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

And learn of the One great Truth which came to set every captive free !
John 14:6, John 8:32-36 and Luke 4:18-19

The Belly of the Beast . . . !

     “God has His workmen in every age. The call of the hour is answered by the coming of the man. Thus when the Divine Voice cries, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” the response will come, “Here am I; send me.” Isaiah 6:8.

Let all who labor effectually in the canvassing field feel in their hearts that they are doing the work of the Lord in ministering to souls who know not the Truth for this time. They are sounding the note of warning in the highways and byways to prepare a people for the great day of the Lord, which is so soon to break upon the world.

We have no time to lose. We must encourage this work. Who will go forth now with our publications? The LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) imparts a fitness for the work to every man and woman who will co-operate with divine power. All the requisite talent, courage, perseverance, faith, and tact will come as they put the armor on. A great work is to be done in our world, and human agencies will surely respond to the demand. The world must hear the warning. When the call comes, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” send back the answer clear and distinct, “Here am I; send me.”

The Fall from Heaven – part.2

Now is come Salvation, and strength, and the Kingdom (King, Sovereign) of our God, and the power of His Christ (Anointed, Anointing) . . . for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night . . . !     Revelation 12:9-11

“There had been no change in the position or authority of Christ. Lucifer’s envy and misrepresentation and his claims to equality with Christ had made necessary a statement of the true position of the Son of God; but this had been the same from the beginning. Many of the angels were, however, blinded by Lucifer’s deceptions.

     Taking advantage of the loving, loyal trust reposed in him by the holy beings under his command, he had so artfully instilled into their minds his own distrust and discontent that his agency was not discerned. Lucifer had presented the purposes of God in a false light–misconstruing and distorting them to excite dissent and dissatisfaction. He cunningly drew his hearers on to give utterance to their feelings . . . Continue reading
