CHRISTIAN “HOLY DAYS”, OR PAGAN? YOU DECIDE
What are the most important days on the Christian calendar? I believe there are so many people in the world, and even most Christians do not know the answer to this question. I know, because I have been a Christian my entire life, and I am 43 years old, and I honestly did not know the answer to this question at all.
In fact, I was completely oblivious of the truth. Many Christians would say Christmas and Easter are the most important Christian dates on the calendar. The very first followers of Jesus Christ observed neither one of these days. They followed His Holy days that Jesus Christ Himself observed!
The true Holy Days picture, in sequence the destiny that God has planned for all of humanity. God ordained these Holy Days as annual festivals for all of His people to observe! But, the holidays that all of humanity from all over the world celebrate in our modern era; they are anything, but they are not ordained by God!
In fact, they are Pagan Holidays! That’s right, Christmas and Easter are Pagan Holidays. December 25th is not the actual date of when Jesus Christ was born. Now, sadly a lot of us grew up in Protestant churches- or in the Catholic/Roman Catholic Church, and very few people bother–even after reaching adulthood–to try and study the Bible to prove why they believe what they believe.
It just seems easier to go “follow the crowd” and go along with what we have been taught. Have you been like this? Have you carelessly assumed that the Bible teaches us to observe Christmas and Easter? If you answer to yourself with a yes, then you could not have been more wrong.
And now for the real truth…The story of Christmas begins long before Jesus was even born. For thousands of years Pagans celebrated the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year. Falling on the 21st or 22nd of December, the solstice is when daylight lasts just seven hours. For Pagans, Yule is the Sabbat that falls on the Winter Solstice, and marks the day when the dark half of the year surrenders to the light half.
But, when Yule comes, the Goddess returns pregnant and births the God of the Waxing Sun. Yule is a time of celebration for pagans and practicing Wiccans from across the world. That’s right, it is WITCHCRAFT! And, it is all centered around Sun worship…The first celebrations can be traced back to Stonehenge and even further, all across the world.
The Egyptians honored the gods that they associated with the Sun, like Odin, Osiris, Isis, Saturn, Pan, and Kronos, and many others. In 325 AD Christmas was introduced over the spring equinox (March 25th) and 25 years before it was moved to the winter solstice with the pagan sun gods. Even today in this modern age, the many pagan traditions are still being practiced everywhere all over the world.
The Christmas tree, can be traced back to prehistoric times; pagans have decorated trees to celebrate the solstice across the world. Christmas carolling began in Rome when bands of naked celebrators paraded the streets singing to celebrate the solstice. Our culture is enriched in pagan history and traditions.
But, it is the Roman Catholic Church that is so steeped in paganism cults, rites, and deities. The Catholic rite of Holy Communion parallels pre-Christian Greco-Roman and Egyptian rituals that involved eating the body of a god.
A number of Catholic holidays and myths, such as Easter and Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Halloween, and Mardi Gras, are on the timeline of pre-Christian fertility festivals. The Catholic practice of praying to saints has been called “de-facto idolatry” and a relic of goddess worship.
In the early days the Church had to merge itself with pagan practices in order to blend into Roman society. Catholicism’s ritual cannibalistic consumption of their “demigod” known as Holy Communion, during Catholic mass, bread and wine are transformed into the flesh and blood of Jesus Christ, who is considered the son of God, in a rite called, “transubstantiation”.
Catholics eat the body and blood of Christ to become one with God. When it comes to Easter, Catholics celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the vernal equinox. The goddess worship: the Virgin Mary, the Catholic practice of praying to saints has been called “idolatry”, Pagan goddesses can be found in the Catholic Church today in forms of Saint Brigid and the Virgin Mary.
Honestly, I could go on and on and on. Santa Claus, too being a pagan deity brought about by the Catholic Church, I believe to just mock Jesus Christ. Anyone can take a look around at a Roman Catholic Church and easily see all of the lies, if they have their eyes open.
Everything is gold, all of the statues everywhere. And now after learning this, the Truth…it makes a person wonder, and maybe even ask themselves; does it make that much difference which days we keep sacred? Does it affect our hope to have eternal life and, does it massively impact our understanding of what kind of God we worship, and what is the great purpose that is being worked out here on earth.
Christians, good Christians, true believer’s in Jesus Christ must know these truths. It is true that we cannot help things we were taught as children to be true, and factual…but I do believe that as adults we should study God’s word enough to discover the truths ourselves for ourselves.
I believe it is very important, and I believe a true Christian will see all of these things fairly easily. God tells us as good Christians we are to stay awake at all times, and to be vigilant, so that we will not be deceived. I feel that this is a very important thing that is basically completely ignored by all of humanity across the world.
Everyone I know very much celebrates Easter, Halloween, and Christmas! I think that there are so, so, many people all over the world, that are completely 100 percent being deceived, and they are going to have a big wake up call one day when the gates of Heaven will not be opened up to them.
That’s why Jesus said, the road to Heaven is narrow, but the road to Hell is wide! Until the next time, everyone…I just wanna say thanks for taking the time to read my blog posts, and please if you are here, remember to press the like button, and leave any comments you may have as well.
My prayer is that one day soon I may be receiving views from thousands of people from all over the world, and something I have said will being someone to accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior!
