A.E Ware well describes the significance of Mary’s action toward the Lord: “We can but call attention to the deep significance to be found in the fact that it was a woman who was chosen of God to set the Lord apart for death as our Redeemer at the end of 4,000 years which began with the act of another woman- Eve – who “being deceived was in the transgression” which involved our whole race in ruin and made the coming of a Redeemer our one and only hope of salvation and restoration” (The Restored Vision by A.E. Ware).
Christ, our Passover Lamb was crucified on Nisan 14th, which was the day instituted by His Father for Passover to be commemorated many years before, when Israel left Egypt (March-April) It was on that day that our Lord laid His life down voluntarily at the hands of Jewish and Gentiles. This day is one of the most important dates of Bible History, because it not only marks the time line of Israel’s departure from Egypt into the Promised Land, but it marks the world’s redemption through our Lord’s death. History tells us that the early Believers observed Passover on the 14th of Nisan, as did YAHSHUA throughout His earthly life, according to the Historian Eusebius. Passover is for the Believers a memorial of YAHSHUA’S death, as He commended us, Do this, as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup to call Me to remembrance (Corinthians 11:26). To call the Savior’s action of love to remembrance, is a must in order for us to renew our gratitude and appreciation for His gift of life. Not once a month, not yearly, but every day. Partaking of the bread and the wine as a symbol of His body and blood, brings spiritual healing and cleansing of our soul. His ordeal supersedes anything we go through in our life time and that gives us hope in our trials.
EASTER, what’s in the name?
Why was the date commanded by God for Passover changed from 14th Nisan to vernal equinox and the name from Passover to Easter? History tells us that the Catholic Church of Rome infiltrated this change to the Christian Church as early as 150 A.D. and it became law in 325 A.D. at the council of Nicaea, Bithynia (present day Iznik, Turkey). This was the first ecumenical council of Christian Bishops by the Emperor Constantine I in A.D. 325. At this council they decided to celebrate Easter on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the vernal equinox, independent from the Hebrew calendar.
What is in the name Easter? “It started in Babylon; its history is pre-Christian origin. It was a festival in honor of Eostre, the Teutonic dawn-goddess. It was also known to be the spring goddess and the goddess of fertility. Easter, the way it was celebrated and it is celebrated today, has its root in Babylon. They have scratched the name Passover and added the practices of eggs and rabbits, and called it Easter. The great meaning of the Passover is passed over by rabbits and the Easter eggs. Rabbits were the most potent symbol of fertility, and the eggs, the start of life, often thought to have magical powers. This practice from the Christian churches compromises the truth of Christianism and establishes an alliance with the pagan ancient Babylon. For this reason, Babylon lives today in the false teachings of Christendom and because of it, the Lord YAHSHUA is not part of these churches.” These are apostate churches with a false grin of truth. They do their way, following traditions from many years past, never wanting to know the truth behind those practices. So, they commemorate Passover in the name of Easter- the Teutonic dawn-goddess, the goddess of fertility and mingle it with the true Passover meaning – YAHSHUA’S death and resurrection. What’s wrong with this picture and what does Eostre has to do with the event of Passover? Isaiah describes this erroneous way of teachings as surely because there is no dawn and no morning for them (Isaiah 8:20b). This is dark, very dark. The churches have left the Light and are stumbling in the darkness of their traditions.
Truth, what a wonderful name! It has the power to set us free from any erroneous doctrine and redirect our path into freedom. Freedom through acceptance and the embrace of it. Pilate wanted to know truth, but did not stay to hear YAHSHUA’S answer. He became a prisoner of guilt, for having crucified the Lord without a fair trial. He was weak and had a vacillating personality, so, he decided to please the mob instead of hearing the truth which would have set him free. He had a sad ending life when he committed suicide on orders of Emperor Caligula. The Word of God says, You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. Because Easter has its link to Babylon, its practices are false and mystical and empty of the truth. Therefore, I consider all churches that practice Easter in its entirety, to be a church connected to the Babylon church of tomorrow! Consider this, my friend and run away from the tradition that links it to the work of the devil. Satan is the father of lies and he is the father of confusion. Follow the truth, for YAHSHUA is truth, He is the Way, and He is Life. Passover has all to do with Him; He established it; it has nothing to do with the tradition the world offers.
