BIBLICAL COMMANDS AGAINST WORSHIPPING AS THE PAGANS
Biblical Call For Complete and Utter Separation From Evil
"Choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites ..." [Josh 24:15]
"No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon." [Matt 6:24]
"Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works." [Ex 23:24]
"... if thou serve their gods, it will surely be a snare unto thee." [Ex 23:33]
"And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty." [2 Cor 6:15-18]
is purely pagan, and yet has been accepted by the Roman Catholic
Church and apostate christian churches as "christian". If the church
you are attending celebrates Lent, you need to inform the Senior
Pastor of the pagan roots of this tradition; if he will not listen you
should leave that church, for if they will accept Lent as "Christian",
you can bet they are very Liberal in critical Biblical areas as well.
Lent is a commemoration of Tammuz' death; the legend of his death says that he was killed by a wild boar when he was 40 years old. Therefore, Lent celebrates 1 day for each year of Tammuz' life. [Marquis, "America's Occult Holidays"] Participants are to express their sorrow over Tammuz' untimely death by weeping, fasting, and self-chastisement.
Lent was commemorated for exactly 40 days prior to the celebration of Ishtar/Esotre and other goddesses by the following cultures: Babylonians, Roman Catholics, Koordistan, Mexicans, Ancient Israel, and today, Liberal, apostate Protestant churches.
We can see God's anger over this commemoration of Lent in Ezekiel 8:14-18; God's judgment for this commemoration is described in Ezekiel 9, a chapter we suggest you read carefully, for God has stated that He will similarly punish any nation who does not "hear and obey" His commands (Jeremiah 12:17).
b. April 1 -- All Fool's Day, precisely 13 weeks since New Year's Day!
c. April 19 - May 1 -- Blood Sacrifice To The Beast, a most critical 13-day period. Fire sacrifice is required on April 19.
April 19 is the first day of the 13-day Satanic ritual day relating to fire -- the fire god, Baal, or Molech/Nimrod (the Sun God), also known as the Roman god, Saturn (Satan/Devil). This day is a major human sacrifice day, demanding fire sacrifice with an emphasis on children. This day is one of the most important human sacrifice days, and as such, has had some very important historic events occur on this day.
Remember, the Illuminati considers war to be a most propitious way to sacrifice, for it kills both children and adults.
Some of the very important historic dates that were staged according to this blood sacrifice day are:
(1). April 19, 1775 -- Battle of Lexington & Concord, which made the Masonic-led Revolutionary War inevitable
(2). April 19, 1943 -- After trapping the last Jewish Resistance Fighters in a storm drain in Warsaw, and holding them for several days, Nazi Storm Troopers began to pour fire into each end of the storm drain, using flame-throwers. They continued pouring the fire into the drain until all fighters were dead. Blood sacrifice brought about by a fiery conflagration.
(3) April 19, 1993 -- 50 years later, to the day, government troops, tanks, and other military equipment stormed the compound of David Koresh and his followers at Waco, Texas. Certainly, this operation fulfilled the basic requirements for a human sacrifice: trauma, fire, and young sacrificial victims.
(4) April 19, 1995 -- Oklahoma City bombing -- Once again, many young children were killed this day
April 19 of any year in the 20th Century is a day of fearful contemplation, for it seems that, as we head into the final stretch of time, Satan is becoming more and more bold, and is using April 19 more often.
d. April 30 - May 1 -- Beltaine Festival, also called "Walpurgis Night". This is the highest day on the Druidic Witch's Calendar, while May 1 is the Illuminati's second most sacred holiday. Human sacrifice is required. Since the celebration officially began the night before Beltaine, the tradition has developed among occultists to celebrate Beltaine as a 2-day ceremony. This tradition was strong enough that Adolf Hitler decided to kill himself on April 30 at 3:30pm, thus creating a "333" and placing his suicide sacrifice within the Beltaine time frame.
Great bonfires are lit on the Eve of Beltaine, April 30, in order to welcome the Earth Goddess. Participants hope to gain favor with this goddess so she will bless their families with procreative fertility. We find it interesting that the Royal House of Windsor lights a Beltaine "Balefire" every year ["America's Occult Holidays", Doc Marquis, p. 30]
The "Maypole" originated from the celebration of Beltaine. Since fertility is being asked of the Earth Goddess, the Maypole is the phallic symbol and the circular dance around the pole forms the circle that is symbolic of the female sex organ. Four six-foot alternating red and white ribbons were connected to the pole; the men would dance counterclockwise, while the ladies danced clockwise. The union of the intertwining red and white ribbons symbolized the act of copulation -- remember, this is a "fertility" celebration day!
To demonstrate their occult, Illuminist ties, Communists have always celebrated "May Day". If you have not been taught how the Illuminati created Communism, and for which purpose, you need to hear our Seminar 2, "America Determines The Flow of History".
3. Summer Solstice -- 13 weeks -- When the sun reaches its northernmost point in its journey across the sky
a. June 21 - 22 -- Summer Solstice
b. June 21 - Litha is one of the Illuminati's Human Sacrifice Nights
c. July 4, America's Independence Day, is 13 days after Day of Litha and 66 days from April 30
d. July 19 -- 13 days before Lughnasa
e. July 31 - August 1 -- Lughnasa, Great Sabbat Festival. August -- One of the Illuminati's Human Sacrifice Nights
4. Autumnal Equinox -- 13 weeks -- Minor Sabbath but does require human sacrifice
a. September 21 - Mabon -- one of the Illuminati's Human Sacrifice Nights
b. September 21 -22 -- Autumnal Equinox -- From this date through Halloween, occultists believe the veil separating the earthly dimension from the demonic realm gets progressively thinner, with the thinnest night being October 31; this thinning of the separating veil makes it easier for the demonic realm to enter the earthly dimension. Thus, on Halloween, evil spirits, ghosts, witches, hobgoblins, black cats, fairies, and demons of all sorts were believed to be running amok across the land. They had to be back in their spiritual dimension before midnight, Halloween, for the separating veil would then get thicker.
Once again, I reiterate, this is occult belief, not mine! October is a most propitious month to the Illuminati.
c. October 31 -- Samhain, also known as Halloween, or All Hallows Eve as designated by the Catholic Church. This date is the Illuminati's highest day of human sacrifice
Halloween has been changed over the past 30 years in two important ways. First, children have been encouraged to participate by donning such inoffensive costumes as Barbie, Wonder Woman, Batman and Superman. Secondly, adult costuming and parties have reached a tremendous apex and has become a most macabre day of celebration.
Historically, Halloween is the deadliest holiday ever celebrated in human history. This Satanic night is dedicated to the Celtic Lord of the Dead, also symbolized by the Horned-god and the Stag-god. The Druids celebrated Samhain as a 3-day fire festival, building huge bonfires, thought to ward off demons that roamed around; additionally, the fires provided the means by which the required human sacrifice would be presented to the sun god. In enormous wicker baskets, the priests caged both human and animal sacrifices, which they then lowered into the flames. The priests would carefully watch the manner in which the victim died in order to predict whether the future held good or evil. ["Pagan Traditions of the Holidays", p. 71]
Origin of Popular Halloween Traditions
Sweets and Trick or Treat
This pagan practice is over 2,000 years old. For the sake of their safety and well-being, people put outside their home sweets, the best mutton legs, vegetables, eggs, and poultry, honey and even wine, so the wandering evil spirits would consume them on their way back to the netherworld. Failure to "treat" these evil spirits might result in a curse being put on the home! The people literally believed that, when these spirits came to your door, they would trick you if you did not treat them.
"The American version of Halloween came from Ireland ... The potato famine in 1840 brought thousands of immigrants from the Emerald Isle. With them came goblins, jack-0-lanterns, bonfires, apples, nuts, and pranks ... The Irish are also responsible for bringing trick or treating to great popularity in America. In Ireland on October 31, peasants went from house to house to receive offerings to their Druid god, Muck Olla. This procession stopped at each house to tell the farmer his prosperity was due to the benevolence of Muck Olla ... or else misfortune might befall the farmer and his crops. Few farmers risked any such displeasure of the pagan deity, so the procession returned home with eggs, butter, potatoes, and in some cases, coins ... To the Irish farmers this was no joke; they greatly feared the Celtic god might destroy their homes and barns ... Trick or treat is part of this pagan heritage." ["Pagan Traditions of the Holidays". p. 78-79].
People would also take burning wisps from the bonfire and wave them around to frighten the many evil spirits roaming the earth; in case the burning wisp alone would not work, revelers clothed themselves in the most hideous and terrifying costumes. These people believed that, if you dressed in a terrifying costume and went trooping around with the spirits all night, they would think you were one of them and would leave you alone. ["Halloween and Satanism", Phil Philips, p. 26-27]
Satan's obsession with fire has produced human obsession with building huge bonfires. As we stated earlier, these bonfires were practical, in that they provided the means by which the priests sacrificed the human and animal sacrifices so crucial to Halloween. When the last fires died out, people would race each other down the hills shouting, "The Devil gets the last one down". [Philips, p. 27-28]
Samhain (Halloween) was also the time to engage the Devil's assistance in divining the future. Questions concerning marriage, luck, health, and the time of one's death were most popular subjects of divination. In Scotland, young people assembled for games and pulled shoots out of the ground to ascertain which of them would marry during the coming year, and in what order the marriages should occur.
Snap Apple Night
Apples have long been a token of love and fertility. At Halloween parties, people bobbed for apples in tubs of water. If a boy came up with an apple between his teeth, he was assured of the love of his girl. The Snap Apple game was one in which the boys delighted. Each boy, in his turn, would spring up to attempt to bite an apple that was being twirled on the end of a stick; the first boy to succeed would be the first to marry.
Apple seeds were also used to tell fortunes. Peeling an apple in one long piece was supposed to tell a young girl about her future. The girl would swing the apple peal three times around her head, then throw it over her left shoulder. If the peeling fell unbroken, the girl would examine the shape into which it fell to see if she could ascertain the initials of her future husband!
Witch's Familiar Spirits
Owls, bats, cats and toads are an essential part of Halloween, and for a very good reason: they are known as "the witch's familiars". A divining familiar was the species of animal whose shape Satan would assume to aid the witch in divining the future. A witch would closely watch the animal's movements -- whether slow or fast -- and she would see the direction in which the animal moved and the kinds of sounds it made, in order to foretell the length of life and/or an impending illness.
Other "familiar spirit" shapes include hens, geese, small dogs, rats, butterflies, wasps crickets, and snails. Witches considered these creatures to be demon-possessed and controlled. If you look closely at most Halloween decorations, you will see these animals, but now you know they represent demon possessed creatures! ["Pagan Traditions of Holidays", p. 75-76]
Jack-O-Lantern and Trick-or-Treat
Various names for Jack-O-Lantern were 'Lantern Men', 'Hob-O-Langer', and "Will-O-The-Wisp". The 'Lantern Men' got their name from pale eerie lights that appeared over bogs and marshes in England. These ghostly lights, which bobbed along like a lantern in someone's hand, were called 'Corpse Candles'.Candles were said to be signals from the souls of men lost at sea. ["Halloween and Satanism", Philips, p. 33-34]
Celts often hollowed out a turnip and carved a grotesque face on it to fool demons. They carried such lanterns to light their way in the dark and to ward off evil spirits ... While the turnip continues to be popular in Europe today, the pumpkin has replaced it in America. 'Jack' is a nickname for 'John', which is a common slang word meaning 'man'. Jack-O-Lanterns literally means 'man with a lantern'. [Pagan Traditions of the Holidays", p. 79-80]
The Druids originated the practice of hollowing out the Jack-O-Lanterns and filling them with human fat. Whenever a raiding party came to a home to demand of the husband that someone inside be surrendered as a human sacrifice, they would light a Jack-O-Lantern filled with human fat; if the husband relented and provided one of his loved ones as a sacrifice, the Druid party would leave Jack-O-Lantern on the porch. This lantern would be tell the other raiding parties and the demonic host that this party had surrendered a human for sacrifice and that the remaining people inside were to be left alone. Guaranteeing that no one else in the house would be killed that night was the "Treat".
If the husband refused to surrender one of his loved ones, a "Trick" would be placed upon the house. The members of the raiding party would draw a large hexagram using human blood on the front door; they got the blood for the hexagram from a dead body they dragged around with them using a cabletow. The demonic host would be attracted to this hexagram and would invade the house, causing one or more of the inhabitants to either go insane or die from fright. ["America's Occult Holidays", p. 20]
This is the true origin of "Trick-or-Treat" and the Jack-O-Lantern. Do you really want to take your kids "Trick-or-Treating"?
Forbidden Practices Specially Associated With Halloween
God lists Satanic practices that He absolutely forbids, on the pain of death! Every one of them is uniquely associated with Halloween!
1. Enchantment -- Act of influencing by charms and incantation using the practice of magical arts. Such practices draw directly upon the power of Satan! God forbids it in many places, chief among which is Deuteronomy 18:10-12.
2. Witchcraft -- Dealing with demonic spirits, using their prescribed methods, commonly called rituals and the "magick arts". The Bible forbids it, as in Galatians 5:19-20. Today, thanks to "Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings, witchcraft is skyrocketing in popularity. TV shows that depict witches are "Bewitched" and "Buffy The Vampire Slayer", to just mention a couple. Go to a video store sometime and walk down the "Horror" aisle, where you will see the popularity of Witchcraft in America today.
3. Sorcery -- Use of power gained from the prescribed rituals demanded by the demonic host. Once the witch or wizard performs the particular ritual correctly, the demonic host is required to provide the power to accomplish that action desired by the witch.
4. Divination -- Fortune telling and seeing into the future. God wants us to trust in Him and His power, and not worry about tomorrow. Satan, on the other hand, loves to get people consumed by the idea that they can know what lies ahead of them. Forbidden in the Bible, Jeremiah 29:8-9 and Deuteronomy 18:10-12.
5. Wizardry -- The art or practices of a wizard, sorcery. A wizard or witch is one skilled in the magick arts, a sorcerer. God forbids such practices in Deuteronomy 18:10-12 and Leviticus 19:31.
6. Necromancy -- Communication with the dead. Specifically, conjuring up the spirits of the dead for purposes of magically revealing the future or influencing the course of events. Forbidden in Deuteronomy 18:10-12 and Isaiah 8:19.
7. Charm -- The practice of putting a spell on someone in order to change or control their mind and/or behavior. Wizards love to get their enemies "one-on-one" because they can "charm" them through the use of ritual done before the meeting, and by the demonic host residing within him. Adolf Hitler followed this practice closely as he dealt with the leaders of Europe, Britain, and Russia. British Prime Minister Chamberlain was totally charmed by Hitler as he sought to appease the German dictator in Munich in 1938; Chamberlain was so totally "charmed" by Hitler, he enthusiastically proclaimed after returning from Munich that he had achieved "peace in our time".
When dealing with a powerful member of the Illuminati, do not attempt to meet with him, nor place any confidence in the testimony of people who have met with him. A "charm" ritual is easily performed and results in the leader exuding confidence, character, and sincerity they most assuredly do not possess. God forbids this activity in Deuteronomy 18:10-12.
8. Stargazing or Astrology -- Divination of the supposed influence of the stars and other heavenly bodies upon human lives and the affairs of nations. Occultists literally order their lives according to Astrology and numerics. God forbids this activity in Deuteronomy 18:10-12 and Jeremiah 10:2. Also called "Observing the Times".
9. Soothsaying -- foretelling events and prophesying through a spirit other than the Holy Spirit. Forbidden in Micah 5:12 and implied strongly in Deuteronomy 18:10-12.
10. Prognostication -- To foretell from signs and symptoms, also prophesying without the Holy Spirit. Forbidden in Isaiah 47:12-13.
11. Magic -- Tapping into the power of the demonic realm through the use of prescribed ritual so that the action carried out is accomplished through demonic power. Forbidden in Deuteronomy 18:10-12, 2 Chronicles 33:6, 1 Samuel 15:23.
All these activities are uniquely associated with the activities and traditions of Halloween! Christians have no business participating in Halloween. To do so is to act against a great number of Scriptures in which God uses the strongest possible language to forbid it. In fact, in most instances, God decreed that people practicing these activities be put to death!
Yet, we see many churches having Halloween parties in which many of these pagan practices are followed! The Apostle Paul gave us strong warning that should stop us dead in our tracks. Listen:
"Let no one delude and deceive you with empty excuses and groundless arguments for these sins, for through these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of rebellion and disobedience." Ephesians 5:6]
Stop listening to people giving you "empty excuses and groundless arguments for these sins", for if you go ahead and participate in this most evil holiday, God shall surely not look away.
One final note on Halloween: if you have been paying attention, you will know that these practices form the heart and soul of the Harry Potter novels and movies. Harry Potter is a wizard, and he comes from a family of witches and wizards [Generational Witchcraft]. His entire existence within these novels revolves around the Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft, where Harry and his friends learn all of these 11 forbidden practices.
Author Rowling makes all this Satanic activity seem so cool and so much fun that tens of millions of young children have been attracted to the Dark Arts forbidden by God. Yet, Christian parents and some Christian ministries foolishly swallow the lie that, somehow, these prohibitions do not apply to them as they read and watch Harry Potter.
Truly, I view this unbelievable phenomenon as a symptom of the "apostasy" of the Christian Church foretold by the Apostle Paul as a key sign of the approach of Antichrist.
"Let no one deceive or beguile you in any way, for that day will not come except the apostasy comes first [unless the predicted great falling away of those who have professed to be Christians has come..." [2 Thessalonians 2:2; KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary].
Literally, Christians participating in practices like these opens the door to Antichrist!
Since we are obviously living in the End of the Age, what manner of living ought we to be following? The Apostle Peter, speaking through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, told us exactly what kind of life we should be persuing.
"Since all these things are thus in the process of being dissolved, what kind of person ought each of you to be, in the meanwhile, in consecrated and holy behavior and devout and godly qualities, While you wait and earnestly long for (expect and hasten) the coming of the day of God ... So, beloved, since you are expecting these things, be eager to be found by Him, at His coming, without spot or blemish and at peace, in serene confidence, free from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts." [2 Peter 3:11, 14; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
The Apostle Peter urges us who realize the closeness of the hour to be:
"consecrated, holy behavior, devout and godly"
"without spot or blemish and at peace, in serene confidence, free from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts"
Further, Jesus told us that we would find these Holy Spirit qualities in our life by "separating" from evil. Listen to the sequence in 2 Cor 6:17-18:
Step #1 -- Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate
Step #2 -- Touch not the unclean thing
Step #3 -- and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty
Whether you like it or not, Jesus will
not receive those who try to serve paganism and Christianity. If you
are participating in any of these activities that have been spawned by
Satanism, you need to closely examine your heart, soul, and mind,
ruthlessly purging anything and everything that might hinder you from
receiving Jesus' blessing. Believe me, the infilling of the Holy
Spirit will more than compensate you for any pleasure you have given
up by doing these pagan acts.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
You can contact us by mail or email.
God bless you.
