Yet Christians continue to their celebrations with the non sense of Rabbits, Eggs Hunts, Hot Cross Buns, etc and encourage others that its biblical truth.

But thats modern Christianity for you...what does what your doing matter or the origins of it or if it doesnt have anything to do with Christ or make any sense, they will just say who cares or what does it mater.

as has been stated many times before on other versions of this type of thread, NO Christian church that I am aware of says or even implies that there is ANY Christian religious significance in the Easter bunny or candy Easter eggs and such things are not part of the church services on the day or do you see such things inside the church. there is a clear distinction made between the memorial of the Resurrection (about Christ our Savior) and the bunny and eggs thing (for the kids FOR FUN).


God knows the intentions of our hearts and if no blasphemy or evil is meant, then it's hard to imagine why He should be especially bothered if AFTER church a little child should have some fun hunting an egg or eating some candy and thus reminding them that the day is a time of joy. if they have been rightly taught they already know the difference between the real Christ and the imaginary bunny. if they don't know, then that same loving and merciful Christ who said, "suffer the children to come unto me.....for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven" will no doubt forgive them their ignorance.


as for the "hot cross buns" think they were originally bread marked with the Cross (the instrument of Christ's suffering and death for our sins and the symbol of our redemption by those means) but they were not formally part of any religious service but instead belonged to a past time when the "dividing line" between secular life and religion was much different than now--- when "holiday" actually meant "holy day", "good bye" meant "God be with you", and "Christmas" was really "Christ's Mass" .


may the peace and joy of the victorious and risen Christ be with you and yours always.

It matters so much that it shall mark you between your eyes and upon your right hand as a memorial between you and God and no Jew can say to you,'' You have no inheritance in Israel, you shall not be gathered to the mountains of Israel, and you are not the child of God.''


Do not let the stranger and foreigner say he is a dry tree with no inheritance in Israel because if the stranger keeps the Sabbaths and feasts that please God, then he shall give them a name better than sons or daughters, HE SHALL BE GATHERED EVEN TO THE MOUNTAINS OF ISRAEL.


What name is better than sons or daughters?


Brethren.




It matters this much.


Exodus 13
6Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day shall be a feast to the LORD. 7Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days; and there shall no leavened bread be seen with thee, neither shall there be leaven seen with thee in all thy quarters. 8And thou shalt shew thy son in that day, saying, This is done because of that which the LORD did unto me when I came forth out of Egypt. 9And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD'S law may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand hath the LORD brought thee out of Egypt. 10Thou shalt therefore keep this ordinance in his season from year to year.


You are indeed marked by whatever Sabbaths and feast days you keep because they tell on you. If you keep the feasts and Sabbaths of Tammuz at Christmas and Easter, then you are sealed with the mark of Babylon, of Tammuz, the resurrected Messiah of Babylon.




Where you find the 666 is where you find Tammuz, and where you find Tammuz, everyone dies at 6 p.m. on the 6th day in the 6th month in the 6th year.










So what, Christians keep pagan days of the Messiah of Babylon, that isn't the big deal.


The big deal is that you have 7 days appointed to you and the first day is Passover, the second day is unleavened bread, the third day is the feast of first fruits and so on until you come to the middle of your week, you walk your first 42 months, and then you finish with another 3 and a half years, 7 days as 7 years.


That is the big deal.


That Christians are so far removed from the plan of Christ that they do not even know the days of their visitations.


The servant who does not know the comings and goings of his master will be cut asunder.






EVERY SINGLE YEAR, your name is spoken on Rosh Hashanah and a decision is made upon your head, and you are either marked between your eyes with a seal of protection against Yom Kippur or you are not.


The feast days mark you.


Come boldly up to the throne every year, This is Yom Kippur.


Come boldly because you do what pleases God.

If a person decided to begin, then this is a good time of the year to do that. Pesach is right around the corner and a 7 year walk begins on Pesach.


The reason there is no time for the foolish virgins is because they don't even know there is a plan and when somebody gets around to telling them the plan, they have 7 years.


7 years.




There is a plan, the feasts are made for man, 7 days as one week for any man who would walk in them.


If a man comes to the middle of his week, then bless God, he only has 3 and a half years left.

Since Christmas Dec 25th was mention that to was a pagan festival of Saturnalia ,which the church picked ( like a rabbit out of a hat) why? To bump the pagan day for Christ's birth that probably was either in Spring. (Nisan) or Sept 11 3BC as one christian astronomers believes based on moon / sun / virgo cycles and time of taxation.

Getting back to Easter or the real date of resurrection there is controversy in regards to "a day" or "third Day" Do the math in Hebrew we know a day is from sundown to sundown. Since it's suggested Jesus died on Friday evening ( as the body needed to be entombed prior to the Saturday Sabbath as burying is "work" and not permitted). Anyway Fri sundown to Saturday sundown (1). Saturday sundown to Sunday sundown (2). Sunday sundown to Monday sundown ( day 3) hmmmm. Argument any part of the day is a a day or the day Fri, Sat Sun (3 days). Another hmmmm. By the way here is a little agit foir the never believer. It was prophecied that Jesus would not have His legs broken as customary ,but the thief's did.

The birth of Christ is set for man, it is made for man and so it was appointed for Christ to be born on an exact day.


His death was appointed for an exact day as it is appointed for every man.


The giving of his spirit was appointed, He being the Passover and the unleavened bread, they were appointed days, exact days.


Jesus was born on the 15th of Tishri and he had to be circumcised on the eighth day of Sukkot and this brought him under the covenant as a day of circumcision, just as it is appointed for the great 8th day, a day of circumcision where Gentiles will come up for 7 days to keep the feasts of Tabernacles, they are circumcised from the congregation on Shemini Atzereth, the great day of Sukkot, the great 8th day of circumcision and birth will indeed happen just as the wedding is appointed, and the consummation of the wedding on an appointed day. The wedding banquet on an appointed day, the birth FROM the consummation on the 15th of Tishri and the circumcision on the great eighth day.


Not only was it a day of birth appointed for Jesus, but for every man who would finish his 42 months of spring and then to finish his 3 and a half years of the fall, and Sukkot is the birth of a new creation, a new man, a child born from a consummation and that child will be circumcised on Shemini Atzereth as it is appointed.


KNOW THYSELF, KNOW YOUR COMINGS ANG GOINGS.


KNOW YOUR OWN TEMPLE, YOU ARE THE TEMPLE.




YOU HAVE DAYS APPOINTED FOR YOU AS A TEMPLE, AND GOD HAS VISITATION DAYS SET UP JUST FOR YOU.


In the middle of your week, the sacrifices will be cut off and you will see the abomination if you are lucky.

Amen. and now to end this with the ancient "Easter" greeting and response (just a tad bit early):

Hey Hannibal F., just curious do you follow the law, are you going to get rid of the yeast in your home this passover?
Just curious what your racial background is.


Yes, the world has been deceived. I believe Jesus was born in April. I believe the name Easter isn't christian. I believe that most of the lies came from the Catholic church or as someone earlier said, Rome.

I also believe Native American/Canadians, blacks, middle easterners and Asians are the children of Israel.

I believe Jesus is son of God.

As for the 42 month thing, I don't quite understand it but what I understand from the scriptures is 666 is to come to power on Sept 15th.
