Who was Easter ?

“The renowned Oxford English Dictionary informs us that the name Easter is derived from the name of a goddess whose festival was celebrated at the time of the vernal equinox. We are told that she was originally known as the dawn goddess – no doubt the origin of sunrise celebrations at the time of Easter.

According to Venerable Bede, a seventh century Anglo-Saxon theologian, the English word Easter is derived from the name of the pagan fertility goddess Eostra. He tells us that “the heathen Anglo-Saxons called the fourth month “Esturmonath” after their goddess Eostra – another name representing the spring fertility goddesses such as Astarte or Ashtaroth, the goddess who was introduced into the British Isles by the Druids. In all actuality Easter is just another name for Beltis or Ishtar of the ancient Babylonians and can be traced all the way back to Hathor, the cow goddess of Egypt that was associated with the building of the golden calf at Mt. Sinai. Continue reading

An Urgent Appeal to our Churches !

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

     I ask that you will share this with every 7th day Adventist, and Christian you know. There is more at stake than many are being led to believe !

     “History is repeating. With the open Bible before them, and professing to reverence its teachings, many of the religious leaders of our time are destroying faith in it as the Word of God. They busy themselves with dissecting the Word, and set their own opinions above its plainest statements. In their hands God’s Word loses Its regenerating power. This is why infidelity runs riot, and iniquity is rife.

     When Satan has undermined faith in the Bible, he directs men to other sources for light and power. Thus he insinuates himself. Those who turn from the plain teaching of Scripture and the convicting power of God’s Holy Spirit . . . “for the Words I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are Life !” (John 6:63) . . . are inviting the control of demons. Criticism and speculation concerning the Scriptures have opened the way for spiritism and theosophy–those modernized forms of ancient heathenism–to gain a foothold even in the professed churches of our Lord Jesus Christ . . . !”

     “I feel the most intense anguish for our youth. I warn you, as one who knows the danger, not to be entrapped by Satan through the little knowledge of science which you may have acquired. It is better to have a pure and humble heart than all the knowledge you can possibly gain without the fear of the Lord.

The youth of today will be likely to meet skeptics and infidels wherever they may go, and how necessary that they be equipped, so that they may be able to give a reason of their hope with meekness and fear. Thomas Paine has passed into his grave, but his works live to curse the world, and those who doubt the Truth of God’s Word, will place these infidel productions in the hands of the young and inexperienced, to fill their hearts with the poisonous atmosphere of doubt. The spirit of Satan works through wicked men to carry on his schemes for the ruin of souls.

     We are living in an age of licentiousness, and men and youth are bold in sin. Unless our youth are sacredly guarded, unless they are fortified with firm principles, unless greater care is manifested in choosing their associates and the literature which feeds the mind, they will be exposed to a society whose morals are as corrupt as were the morals of the inhabitants of Sodom. The appearance of the people of the world may be very attractive, but if they are continually throwing out suggestions against the Bible, they are dangerous companions; for they will ever seek to undermine the foundations of your faith, to corrupt the conscientiousness of old-fashioned, gospel religion.
– Signs of the Times, April 21, 1890

     “Satan assigns to each of his angels a part to act. He enjoins upon them all to be sly, artful, cunning. He instructs some of them to act the part of the apostles and to speak for them, while others are to act the part of infidels and wicked men who died cursing God, but now appear to be very religious. There is no difference made between the most holy apostles and the vilest infidel. They are both made to teach the same thing. It matters not whom Satan makes to speak, if his object is only accomplished. He was so intimately connected with [Thomas] Paine upon the earth, aiding him in his work, that it is an easy thing for him to know the very words Paine used and the very handwriting of one who served him so faithfully and accomplished his purposes so well. Satan dictated much of his writings, and it is an easy thing for him to dictate sentiments through his angels now and make it appear that they come through Thomas Paine, who, while living, was a devoted servant of the evil one. This is the masterpiece of Satan. All this teaching, purporting to be from apostles and saints and wicked men who have died, comes directly from his satanic majesty. 

     The fact that Satan claims that one whom he loved so well, and who hated God so perfectly, is now with the holy apostles and angels in glory, should be enough to remove the veil from all minds and discover to them the dark, mysterious works of Satan. He virtually says to the world and to infidels, No matter how wicked you are, no matter whether you believe or disbelieve in God or the Bible, live as you please, heaven is your home; for all know that if Thomas Paine is in heaven, and so exalted, they will surely get there. This error is so glaring that all may see if they will. Satan is now doing through persons like Thomas Paine what he has been trying to do since his fall. He is, through his power and lying wonders, tearing away the foundation of the Christian’s hope and putting out the sun that is to light them in the narrow way to heaven. He is making the world believe that the Bible is uninspired, no better than a storybook, while he holds out something to take its place; namely, spiritual manifestations!”

The Origin and Reasons for the Season ?

     “Hear ye the Word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel . . . Thus saith the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah), Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven . . . !”   Jeremiah 10:1-5

     For “well did Isaiah prophesy of us, saying . . . This people draweth nigh unto Me with their mouth, and they honoreth Me with their lips; but their hearts are far from Me. For in vain do they worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men . . .”   Matthew 15:6-9

     It is our prayer that each child of God will search for the Truth, as it is in Christ Jesus. For the Bible says, “The times of our ignorance God winked at, but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent . . . . Because He hath appointed a day, in the which He will judge the world in righteousness by that Man (Christ Jesus) Whom He hath ordained . . . !”   Acts 17:30-31

Noah . . . the upcoming movie !

noah movie 2
Noah ! –
 the story of one of the most epic biblical figures is about to wash ashore to a theater near you. It’s set to be full of action, drama, and suspense. But the one thing it will not be . . . . is Biblical.

With this is mind, we encourage every Christian to read in full the articles included below, before setting this film before their family’s eyes. For the same spirits which influence a films writers, director and actors, is the same spirits which will influence the minds of all who watch it . . . !

The film is based on a graphic novel (fiction) written by Darren Aronofsky and Ari Handel.  The director (Aronofsky) does not even claim any connection to Christianity. Although this would not disqualify him from making an accurate representation of a historical account, however it will introduce a secular and worldly  bias of doubt as to the historic Truth of this Biblical event !

Add to that, that each of his previous films have  not been rated as “family” films, and reviews by Hollywood insiders, describe Aronofsky’s films as graphic, and very “dark.”  It is with that background that the following quote stems from an interview of the director’s past films revealing his intentions when creating a movie

Interview Quote – “Ruby:   You know, a lot of filmmakers seem to be either very literary-based or else very movie-based who just watch movies. You seem to really be developing this new visual style that suits each story. You know, how did you find this third road?

Aronofsky:   It’s probably because I’m godless. And so I’ve had to make my god, and my god is narrative film making, which is — ultimately what my god becomes, which is what my mantra becomes, is the theme !”

Christ-mass ?

Vatican-City - christmasQuote from a protestant reformer, Charles Spurgeon –

“We have no superstitious (non-Biblical) regard for times and seasons. Certainly we do not believe in the present ecclesiastical arrangement called Christmas: first, because we do not believe in the mass at all, but abhor it, whether it be said or sung in Latin or in English . . . . And, secondly, because we find no Scriptural warrant whatever for observing any day as the birthday of the Savior; and, consequently, its observance is a superstition, because not of Divine authority.
– Charles Spurgeon, Sermon on Dec. 24, 1871

Note: “the mass” literally means = child sacrifice

     “When it can be proved that the observance of Christmas, Whitsuntide, and other Popish (Papal, Catholic) festivals was ever instituted by a divine statute, we also will attend to them, but not till then. It is as much our duty to reject the traditions of men, as to observe the ordinances of the Lord. We ask concerning every rite and rubric, “Is this a law of the God of Jacob?” and if it be not clearly so, it is of no authority with us, who walk in Christian liberty !”
– from Charles Spurgeon’s Treasury of David on Psalm 81:4.
