And All the World Wondered After the Beast ?

     “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast (ref: Daniel 7:16-25) rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns; and upon his heads the name of blasphemy . . .    ref: John 10:33 and Revelation 17:7-18

     And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death . . . and the deadly wound was healed. And all the world wondered after the beast . . . and all that dwell upon the earth shall worship (serve and obey) him, whose names are not written in the book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world . . . . If any man have an ear, let him hear !”   Revelation 13:1-10, 16-18

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

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
