Just because they have money, thousands of members, and a worldwide ministry does not mean that they were sent by God. Whenever you teach a doctrine that contradicts biblical scripture, you are not a servant of God but a friend of the enemy, Satan.
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 2 Corinthians 11:13-14

Someone asked me the other day, if God wanted us to be saved, why did he create parables and mysteries?  That is a good question and one that needs some explaining. Most people believe that we can just pray and ask the holy spirit for direction, open the Bible, and POW!!, you’ll get an understanding.  The Word of God has never been set up that way nor will it ever be.  Because people don’t understand the Bible, they tend to read it in a vacuum, applying every scripture to themselves. When the Bible says that the Spirit will guide you into all truth (John 16:13), it was not talking to the world, so the world is making a mistake in applying this scripture to themselves. This scripture was for the Apostles.  The Bible is indeed a mystery and God had a good reason for setting it up this way. He has always had a divine system in place in which his truth was designed to flow through. Because the religious communities don’t understand this system, they will emphatically deny it.  Scripture clearly lets us know that God does not change and warns the world not to change his word. This includes his divine system ( Deut. 4:2; Malachi 3:6; Psalms 89:34;Hebrews 13:8). The following are just a few scriptures, both Old and New Testament informs us that the Bible is a mystery:

The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law. (Deut 29:29)

Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. (Amos 3:7)

He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. (Matthew 13:11)

All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him. (Matthew 11:27)

So what is the purpose of mysteries? 

If you look around today, you will notice thousands of different religions, denominations, etc, who has different doctrinal points although they all read from the same Bible. You will find thousands of different interpretations related to the same one scripture and hundreds of different groups that proclaim to be the only group who holds the truth. There are people throughout the world who have stop seeking God, because they are so confused, for to a person that doesn’t read or understand the Bible, everyone sounds right while teaching different principles. It is only through the mysteries and the revelation of these mysteries that you will know who God’s “True Church” is. Scripture tells us to “PROVE ALL THINGS” (1Thes.5:21). It is through the proof of scripture that you can come to know him and begin to distinguish God’s True Church from all the false ones. Most churches and pastors don’t even realize that what they are preaching is not God’s word.  I am not even suggesting that they are deliberately trying to deceive you, but when you are not preaching the same message that the true church preached in both the Old and New Testament, then the message that is preached is not valid.  We think that everyone that holds up a Bible and read from it, is righteous and a man of God. Let me remind you that the Scribes and Pharisees read and taught from the scriptures as well and was accused by Christ of shutting up heaven unto man.

But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. (Matthew 23:12)

It is by not knowing the mysteries pertaining to salvation that will allow Satan to be successful in deceiving the entire world. (Rev.12:9)Just because a way seems right; because the choir can really sing, and because a place is packed does not mean that their way is right. It is only by knowing the mysteries that make you right.

There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. (Proverbs 16:25)

How the Spirit will guides the seeker.

There are a number of stories in the Bible that will give you a clearer understanding of how God’s divine system works. In the 8th chapter of the book of Acts, the holy spirit sent Philip to a man to preach Christ unto him and to baptize him.

26And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert.

27And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,

28Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet.

29Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot.

30And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?

31And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him

35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.

38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.

Although this man was seeking and reading, the holy spirit did not just open up his understanding. God will send the word to you through his divine system, if you have it in your heart to truly receive it. God sent A Man which was part of his divine system on earth, to teach and baptize the Ethiopian.

In Acts the 10th Chapter, we see another clear example of this.  The Bible calls Cornelius a devout man, and one that feared God with all his house. As devout as Cornelius was, the holy spirit did not come down and teach him one word! God’s divine system kicked into gear once again. He sent Peter to go and preach salvation to Cornelius and his house. (Please read the entire 10th Chapter)

Acts 10:4-5,20,22

And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, What is it, Lord? And he said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God.

5And now send men to Joppa, and call for one Simon, whose surname is Peter:

20Arise therefore, and get thee down, and go with them, doubting nothing: for I have sent them.

22And they said, Cornelius the centurion, a just man, and one that feareth God, and of good report among all the nation of the Jews, was warned from God by an holy angel to send for thee into his house, and to hear words of thee.

44While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.

If man really believed that we didn’t need this system, why do they attend church service every week and let A Man teach them?  How come they make the statement “He is an anointed man or woman of God when the word anointed means to separate by God for a special use? This is because man desires the reward without going through the system. They are comfortable with where they are at and don’t believe that mysteries still exist today. They have been convinced that no one system, no one person knows it all, although scriptures say just the opposite. (Coming Soon: God’s Divine System)

 

Understanding our past is a task that most people sweep under the rug. If it is not mandatory through the school system, we just tend to ignore it. But when it comes to Biblical principles and doctrines that have a direct affect on ones salvation, we should avoid taking this sort of thing lightly. On my last post, I showed from the Bible the importance of Passover and Communion, and how the adoption of a “created” religious holiday has separated the world from God. While we know that Christ death and resurrection did take place, there is no form of scripture that tells us to celebrate it the way in which the world celebrates it today. God was specific on how we should serve him until he comes, yet we insist on adopting practices that have essentially cut us off form the covenants of promise.

Let me remind you of two scriptures in the Bible (both Old and New Testaments) that is clear on the danger of adding to and taking away from the Bible:

Deuteronomy 4:2-3 (King James Version)

2Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.

Revelation 22:18-19 (King James Version)

18For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

19And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Don’t find it strange that Satan, through the religious community, has changes the very things that will lead us into eternal life for Daniel prophesied that these things should come. Satan is a deceiver and comes to kill, steal and to destroy. To show you how great of a deceiver he is, the Bible states that he will have deceived the ENTIRE WORLD, except for God’s Elect. (Matthew 24:24; 2 John 1:6-7;Rev. 12:9)

Daniel 7:25
And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

Here is the sad part about all of this and one that shows the boldness of Satan. Not only did he change the times and seasons, but the very ones that he used and were responsible for implementing the change have no problem with showing this in books and on the internet. Although it’s there in black and white, those that have been institutionalized by the religious system, refuse to change.

 Direct reference from the Catholic Encyclopedia: The Easter  (Passover) Controversy

The dioceses of all Asia, as from an older tradition, held that the fourteenth day of the moon, on which day the Jews were commanded to sacrifice the lamb, should always be observed as the feast of the life-giving pasch [epi tes tou soteriou Pascha heortes], contending that the fast ought to end on that day, whatever day of the week it might happen to be.

Because the Passover (Easter) feast was a seven day festival, the early Catholic church not only thought that it was too long, but that it should be held around the same time every year. Remember, the scripture tells us not to add or take away from the bible. Once God said it, it is an eternal law and because He is Holy and Righteous in all his ways, he has no need to change. (Psalms 89:34; Psalms 145:17). Again, Ex.12:14-15 tells us that the Passover shall be a memorial feast forever and the fourteenth day of the first month is not the Jew’s Passover, but the Lord’s Passover.

Exodus 12:14-15 (King James Version)

14And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.

15Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.

Leviticus 23:5
In the [fourteenth day of the first month] at even is the LORD’s passover.

Phase 1 (the time of Pope Victor, about A.D. 190) However it was not the custom of the churches in the rest of the world to end it at this point, as they observed the practice, which from Apostolic tradition has prevailed to the present time, of terminating the fast on no other day than on that of the Resurrection of our Saviour. Synods and assemblies of bishops were held on this account, and all with one consent through mutual correspondence drew up an ecclesiastical decree that the mystery of the Resurrection of the Lord should be celebrated on no other day but the Sunday and that we should observe the close of the paschal fast on that day only.” These words of the Father of Church History, followed by some extracts which he makes from the controversial letters of the time, tell us almost all that we know concerning the paschal controversy in its first stage.

http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/05228a.htm

Phase 2.The second stage in the Easter controversy centers round the Council of Nicaea (A.D. 325). Granted that the great Easter festival was always to be held on a Sunday, and was not to coincide with a particular phase of the moon, which might occur on any day of the week, a new dispute arose as to the determination of the Sunday itself. The text of the decree of the Council of Nicaea which settled, or at least indicated a final settlement of, the difficulty has not been preserved to us, but we have an important document inserted in Eusebius’s “Life of Constantine” (III, xviii sq.). The emperor himself, writing to the Churches after the Council of Nicaea, exhorts them to adopt its conclusions and says among other things: “At this meeting the question concerning the most holy day of Easter was discussed, and it was resolved by the united judgment of all present that this feast ought to be kept by all and in every place on one and the same day. . . And first of all it appeared an unworthy thing that in the celebration of the Jews who have impiously defiled their hands with enormous sin. . . for we have received from our Saviour a different way.

The Roman Church not only thought to change the times, but they no longer wanted to be associated with the Jews or the ways of the Jews who in fact (true Jews) were given the Oracles of God. (Romans 3:1-2). They go on to say that they have received a different way from the Savior although that way is not documented in scripture and scripture tells us that God will never change.

Psalm 89:34 (King James Version)

34My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.

Malachi 3:6 (King James Version)

6For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

Hebrews 13:8 (King James Version)

8Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

 

Here is a summary of the changes that was established by the Catholic Church. While other religions and denominations may attest to the fact that they did not establish these changes, they are just as guilty (guilt by associations) for enforcing and teaching others to do observe them.

  • that Easter must be celebrated by all throughout the world on the same Sunday;
  • that this Sunday must follow the fourteenth day of the paschal moon; (Remember, this is the time that God commanded us to keep the Passover)
  • that that moon was to be accounted the paschal moon whose fourteenth day followed the spring equinox;
  • that some provision should be made, probably by the Church of Alexandria as best skilled in astronomical calculations, for determining the proper date of Easter and communicating it to the rest of the world (see St. Leo to the Emperor Marcian in Migne, P.L., LIV, 1055).

Every year as the various holiday seasons start to approach, I get more and more disturbed by the false worshipping of the religious community. Of course people are free to worship any way that they like for God gave every man free will; but what’s the use of doing a thing if it is not accepted by the Almighty?  In Matthew 23:12-14, the scribes and Pharisees, religious men, were accused by Christ of shutting the door to the Kingdom of Heaven through their traditions. Christ also chastised these religious men in the book of Matthew for worshipping God by their traditions.

Matthew 15:3 (King James Version)

3But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?

This is considered vain worship. Yes, with your lips do men pray, sing, testify, speak in tongues, prophecy and read the Bible, but because of their traditions, it is useless in the sight of God.

Vain: excessively proud of or concerned about one’s own appearance, qualities, achievements, etc.; conceited; without real significance, value, or importance; baseless or worthless

Matthew 15:9 (King James Version)

9But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Matthew 15:8 (King James Version)
This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.

We just came out of that time of year where some people were celebrating Passover, while many others were observing Easter. I’ve heard many things over the past month like Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday, Good Friday,  Easter Sunday to name a few. Can someone please tell me where these “holidays are at in the Bible? While many events took place, there is yet one scripture that tells me to celebrate them. Why is it that the religious communities insist on doing things that were not commanded in the Bible, yet refuse to do the things that we were commanded to do forever such as the Passover. So you say that you are a Christian? Newsflash, Christians are followers of Christ and did not Christ keep the Passover with his disciples? (Luke 22:8).

  • Luke 22:8 (King James Version)

8And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat.

So as a Christians why isn’t the world keeping this feast as he has commanded, since Christ is our perfect example.

  • John 13:15 (King James Version)
    For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.

Is it a commandment for us to keep this feast today you ask? Before Christ left the scene, he commanded his Disciples to go out into ALL nations and teach them ALL that he has commanded. The way to obtain complete salvation is by following the Apostles doctrine.(Acts 2:42)  The Apostles doctrine was nothing new or created by them, but were those things that Christ himself taught them before he left the earth.

Matthew 28:19-20 (King James Version)

19Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Here is the backbreaker, and one that may shock many of you. It is impossible to enter into the Kingdom of heaven without keeping communion and all the other ordinances of the Passover.(Numbers 9:12;John 13:8)  Communion was introduced on the first day of the Passover after the Passover meal. This is one of the ordinances of the Passover. Since the Passover must be kept in its appointed season (Leviticus 23:4-8), and the communion was done on the first night (Luke 22:20), they both go hand and hand. If you do not have Passover(which include all its ordinances), you are not taking the communion correctly. The Communion commemorates the death, suffering and resurrection of Christ (Luke 22:19-20; 1Cor 11:26); not Easter.

  • Luke 22:20
    Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

Many people incorrectly read a passage of scripture, convincing themselves that you can have communion at anytime. Some have suggested to me that if you wish to take communion everyday that is ok because the scripture says as “oft (often)”. As often means here at its appointed time. As often as you have a car you get an oil change.(3 months 3000 miles-an appointed time).As often as you are in grammar school, you get a report card. (Again this is usually at the end of each quarter-an appointed time). The point here is that he gave an appointed time to celebrated the Feast of Passover (Ex.12:2,3,14,-18) and since the communion is done on the first day of Passover, we know that this “Oft” is referring to once a year and not every1st Sunday as most do. Luke 22:20 as well as 1 Corithians 11:25 tells us that the communion cup was given after the Passover meal. “Likewise also, the cup after super

  • 1 Corinthians 11:25
    After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

I knew I would get you on this. Easter is in the Bible! The word Easter is indeed in the Bible, however, the way in which this English word is used in the Bible is not the way that the world uses it today. The word Easter is used only one place in the Bible:

Acts 12:3-4
3And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)

4. And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.

Context clues from verse 3 should indicate to you that the word Easter is another word for Passover. But if that is not convincing enough for you, let us look at how the Greek dictionary defines this word. According to the Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance the Greek word for Easter can be found under #3957 of the Greek dictionary.

Let us look at the definition from #3957 of the Greek.


Notice that the transliteration of this word is “pascha”, which means the paschal feast. You should also notice that this was an appointed time which was given in Leviticus 23:4-8. You read correctly. The New Testament confirms the same time of the feast as the Old Testament

Also one should pay close attention to the root word, which means the same thing and comes from the Hebrew language. The New Testament does not contradict the Old Testament, and the Greek writers did not contradict the Hebrew writers.

Christ our Passover:  I hear so many people tell me that Christ is our Passover, therefore we have no need to keep the feast. Minsters of religious organizations from around the world have convinced its members that Christ was our Passover; and he was. But what does that mean? Christ is a type of Passover that was used to take away sin.

John 1:29
The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

Satan, as his trick is, will use some scriptures while leaving others out to deceive the world.(2 Corinth. 11:14;Rev.12:9) How in the world did religious followers of these doctrines allow the Pastors to quote one scripture, while leaving the following scripture out? ;”

1 Corinthians 5:7 (King James Version)
Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:

NOW FOR VERSE 8

1 Corinthians 5:8 (King James Version)

8Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

 

ALL-SEEING EYE — The All-seeing eye originated in Egypt in those Satanic Mysteries which God physically judged during the time of Moses, when he lead the Israelites out of the land by the mighty hand of God.  The All-Seeing Eye was representative of the omniscience of Horus, the Sun God, [Magic Symbols, by Frederick Goodman, p. 103, Satanic symbols book].  As one Masonic book says, “These considerations lead us to an interesting topic, the Eye of Mind or the Eye of Horus … and conveying the idea of the ‘All seeing Eye’.  The end set before the Egyptian neophyte was illumination, that is to be ‘brought to light’.  The Religion of Egypt was the Religion of the Light”. [Thomas Milton Stewart, The Symbolism fo the Gods of the Egyptians and the Light They Throw on Freemasonry, London, England, Baskerville Press, Ltd., 1927, p. 5]Anyone who knows their Scripture and thinks of themselves as “Christian” should feel right now like they have been slapped alongside their head with a two-by-four!  This Masonic author has just told you that the Light to which Masons constantly refer, and toward which they are to constantly move, is the Religion of Horus!  This is damning, because in Egyptian Mythology, Horus IS Lucifer [Former Satanist, William Schnoebelen, Masonry:  Byond The Light, p. 197 http://cuttingedge.org/free19.htm

BAPHOMET, the symbol of the satanic goat, usually portrayed as a half human, half goat figure, or a goat head. It is often misinterpreted as a symbol of witch-craft in general. It is used by Satanists, but is not used by neo-pagan witches who do not worship the devil. The english witchcraft historian Montague Summers suggested that it was a combination of two greek words, baphe and metis, meaning “absorption of knowledge.” Baphomet has also been called the Goat of Mendes, The Black Goat and the Judas Goat. In the middle ages the Baphomet was believed to be an idol, represented by a human skull, a stuffed humans head or a metal or wooden human head with curly black hair. The idol was said to be worshipped by the Order of Knights Templar as the source of fertility and wealth. In 1307 King Phillip IV of France accused the Order of the Knights Templar of heresy, homosexuality and among other things, worshipping this idol and anointing it with the fat of murdered children. However, only 12 of the 231 knights interrogated by the church admitted worshipping or having knowledge of the Baphomet. Novices said they had been instructed to worship the idol as their god and savior, and their descriptions of it varied: it had up to three heards and up to four feet; it was made of either wood or metal, or was a painting, sometimes it was a gift. Aleister Crowley named himself Baphomet when he joined the Ordo Templis Orientalis, a secret sexual magic order formed around 1896 in Germany. Many fraternities/ sororities like Alpha phi Alpha, Phi Beta Sigma, Delta Theta Sigma ,etc. use symbols that they are probably not consciously aware of that have Satanic origins.

The Church of Satan, founded in 1966 in San Francisco, adopted another rendition of baphomet to symbolize Satanism. The symbol is a goats head drawn within an inverted pentacle, enclosed in a outer circle, hebraic figures at each point in the pentagram spell ot leviathan, a huge water serpent associated with the devil. In Church of Satan rituals, the sigil of Baphomet is hung on the wall behind the alter. The Baphomet may also be worn as a medallion.

Hexagram-The first mention of the star was in Amos 5:26 regarding the trek from Egypt to Canaan. Then in 922 B.C., when Solomon married the daughter of Pharoah and went into magic and witchcraft and built an altar to Ashtoroth and Moloch. The book traces the six pointed star from Egypt to Solomon, to Arab Magic and Witchcraft, to Druid use(references are documented). The book traces the star through Freemasonry usage to Mayer Amschel Bauer, who, in the 17th century, changed his name to depict the red six-pointed star (or shield) which he had hung on his door in Germany, and thus began the family of “Red Shield” or Rothschild. The research carried on through this family, to their court of arms, to Cabala, to Astrology, to Hitler and his putting a yellow six-pointed star on all Jews during the holocaust, to the Zionist symbol, and finally to the flag of the State of Israel and beyond.

Because this symbol is comprised of a six within a six within a six (6 points, 6 triangles, 6 sides of the hexagon in the middle) the research also included a look at the 666 prophecies in the Book of Daniel etc., regarding the “wilful King” (anti-Christ) and the “mark of the beast”. The Scriptural significance of the number seven and a Biblical description of the real Messiah and the seven-branched Candlestick (Menorah) which God gave to the children of Israel as an everlasting covenant (which is also mentioned in the New Testament) is covered. All the sources are written at the bottom of each page making it easy for readers to see and check for themselves.

In our recent show, we talked about how Satan has infiltrated the world system and has incorporated his message, his people, and his will upon the face of the Earth. Organizations have adopted many satanic symbols unbeknown to those who participate.  You cannot justify using symbols and signs that originated as Pagan and Satanic signs. Although there is a lot of information to talk about, we wanted to just open your eyes to some of the information that exist.  What does this have to do with religion or religious organizations? The Devil didn’t just get into music, politics, and educational institutions, but his greatest accomplishment is when he entered into the “Church”.

Ephesians 6:12 (King James Version)

12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Even though the Bible already existed, MAN FOUND THE NEED TO “CREATE RELIGIONS. Why? When man created religious organizations and institutions, secretly, that was Satan separating people from God for he said not to add to or take away from the Bible.  These institutions have created doctrines that are contrary to the doctrine of the Bible.  Jehovah Witness’s for example state that you have to be a part of their organization to enter into paradise. Where is that located in the Bible?  This can be no further from the truth since the organization was created in 1881 and their founder, Charles Taze Russell is not found in the Bible.  Other institutions like the Apostolic/Pentecostal movements profess that for anyone to be saved they MUST be baptized in the ENGLISH name “JESUS” (Acts 2:38)for this is the Apostles doctrine.  Well since the English language did not exist at the time  of the Apostles and the letter “J” is approximately 550 years old, it is clear to see that the Apostles were not baptizing in THAT NAME !

Revelation 22:18-19 (King James Version)

18For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

19And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Satan’s plan to deceive the world comes by him presenting himself as an angel of light:

2 Corinthians 11 (New Living Translation)

But I will continue doing what I have always done. This will undercut those who are looking for an opportunity to boast that their work is just like ours. 13 These people are false apostles. They are deceitful workers who disguise themselves as apostles of Christ. 14 But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. 15 So it is no wonder that his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. In the end they will get the punishment their wicked deeds deserve.

Let’s look at some other scriptures that talk about Satan and his cunning ways. Most people in the Christian community teach that there is no need to keep the Holy Feast days of the Bible including the Sabbath. Most even teach that the Laws are no longer biding.

Daniel 7:25 (King James Version)

25And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

Because man refuse to seek truth, not only does scripture tell us that God will turn them over to a reprobated mind, but he will blind their eyes so that they cannot hear. This much you must understand, you will not see the trick of the enemy plain because it is his job to deceive man by every method and by any means.

2 Thessalonians 2:10-13 (New Living Translation)

10 He will use every kind of evil deception to fool those on their way to destruction, because they refuse to love and accept the truth that would save them. 11 So God will cause them to be greatly deceived, and they will believe these lies. 12 Then they will be condemned for enjoying evil rather than believing the truth.

Origin of the Birthday Celebration 

I recently read a post on facebook where someone stated that they were going to celebrate the Birth of Christ and that it was necessary to honor his Birth. They went on to say, “we honor his death so we ought to honor his birth”. There is no doubt that Christ was born and that he came into this world to save mankind. But man has created a celebration that was never authorized by the Father or the Son. You never see anyone of his followers talking about it or observing it. In fact, most that read the Bible don’t even understand the various events that occurred on and around his birth. For example, the three wise men were sent with Gifts and they presented them to the Christ child. But Herod was an ungodly man and this was HIS CUSTOM, not the custom of the Godly. The Bible never called them “3 Godly Men”, but they were wise among Herod. They use this one event in the Bible in an attempt to justify giving gifts at birthdays and at Christmas time.

About the 3 wise men

Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. 12 And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route. (Matthew 2:12)

About King Herod

When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up,” he said, “take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him. (Matthew 2:13)

It always amazes me when I see people celebrating feast and festivals in God’s name although he never started or authorized them, but they refuse to keep the feast days that are in the Bible which says that they must be observed forever. I found an excellent post about 6 years ago and rather than rewriting it, I thought that I would just repost so that you can understand clearly the origins behind one of the biggest anti-Christ celebration that man loves so much.

Simple things, like birthday celebrations, have infiltrated our daily lives as Christians. Each and every one of us looks forward to that special day when we are acknowledged and held in high regard because it is our birthday. It seems like a completely innocent idea, but the birthday celebration, like almost every other aspect of our daily lives, has a pagan origin. 

In ancient times, festivities were only held for kings, leaders, and gods. There was always much pomp and ceremony involved with these celebrations because they were meant to honor people or beings highly esteemed. Parades and circuses were held, and in Rome, even gladiatorial matches were conducted to commemorate these occasions. Common men and women were not permitted to celebrate their birthdays because they were strictly reserved for the affluent and the divine.
This activity progressed slowly in compliance with the Satanist movement and the following selection details the attitude that was prevalent among the masses. The Satanist feels: “Why not really be honest. If you are going to create a god in your image, why not create that god as yourself?” Every man is a god if he chooses to recognize himself as one. So, the Satanist celebrates his own birthday as the most important holiday of the year. After all, aren’t you happier about the fact that you were born than you are about the birth of someone you have never even met? Or for that matter, aside from religious holidays, why pay higher tribute to the birthday of a president or to a date in history than we do to the day we were brought into this world?

Slowly, birthday celebrations became more common, and everyday people took part in an activity that had Satanist origins. In Assyria and Babylon, recording the time of birth was important because of their fixation on the stars, constellations, and horoscopes. At the time of birth, lives, duties, and occupations were predicted for each individual according to the correspondence of the birthday with the position of heavenly bodies. This practice is even more widespread in modern times than it was back then. People often resign themselves to their horoscopes and physiologically confine themselves to the vague predictions given.

Other common birthday observances, like the birthday cake, are also derivations of old pagan practices. Even the custom of lighting candles on a cake comes from ancient times, when people were known to pray over the open fire. They were convinced that the smoke from the flames carried their thoughts, prayers, and unsaid desires to the gods. Nowadays, one blows out the candles with a specific wish in mind, hoping that it will come true. Clearly, there is an obvious, undeniable parallel between the early custom and our own.

Have you ever wondered why the only birthday celebrations recorded in the Bible are those of ungodly leaders like Pharaoh (Gen. 40:20) and Herod (Matt . 14:6)? Even though the birth of Jesus is recorded in great detail in the Bible, the exact date is never mentioned. It is fairly certain that December 25th, a day set aside by the entire world, is not, in fact, Jesus’ birthday. The birth date of the Son of God was deliberately intertwined with pagan birthday celebrations for the sun god.

Mention of birthday celebrations in the Bible are scattered and very scarce. In fact, the scripture makes a particularly resolute statement about birthdays. In Ecclesiastes 7:1, it says, “A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one’s birth.” This implies that the examination of a person’s worth and the merit of his entire life should take precedence over the celebration of his birth because, at this point, he has done nothing significant with his existence. When a person dies and has lived life to its fullest while serving God, it only seems right to honor him.

This is just another example of how we take part in so many evil practices without being fully aware of their significance or origins. Birthdays do not seem to be wicked, but we will never know where these simple things came from if we do not take an active interest in investigating the things we are involved in.
