Pagan Origin of Christian Holidays!


Thank you to a sister, Kathy, who wrote the following as a comment to a critic of my satan claus post and the occult origins of Christmas. The Spirit was definitely flowing through her writing because she has put into words an excellent summary and timely reminder of the occult origins of all these ‘Christian’ holidays.

I’d like to point out that you are splitting hairs and instigating dissension within the body of Christ via your demeaning post to Tony. Jesus called it “straining at a knat and swallowing a camel.” Even IF Tony was not entirely correct (which we have no way of knowing for sure as traditions in history often get confused), you still should be paying attention to the gist of what he wrote, not picking things apart. If some of his facts are incorrect, then out of brotherly love in Christ you could have corrected him. Having said that, however, his theology regarding the wrongness of Christians celebrating pagan holidays, is right on.

Here are some “facts” John, that haven’t been half-baked in anyone’s oven. Many of our supposed “Christian” holidays are anything but “holi” (Holy) days, at least not holy to our God. By deliberate design, most all of them are pagan in origin. For example Easter has nothing what-so-ever to do with the resurrection of Christ! Yet Christian churches celebrate “Easter Sunday” as the celebration of his resurrection. The dates set for Easter Sunday do not even correspond with the resurrection, they correspond with Spring Equinox or the pagan fertility rites of Spring (depending on who is celebrating it). If the Christian church wishes to celebrate Christ’s resurrection, they should at least set the date for the Sunday immediately following Passover, as Christ died and arose from the grave during Passover week.

Easter is a pagan holiday in celebration of the fertility goddess, Ishtar, Astarte, Ashtoreth, and other variations depending on which language or culture you are referring to. Easter did not originate with the Saxon Eastre or Eostre, as it was only a pagan minority of Saxons anyway who honored her, just as Wiccans today honor Ishtar (as Isis) during the Spring Equinox or Rites of Spring. Most of us are not Wiccans. Anyone who claims the Saxons (as a whole) knowingly worshipped her, are shooting in the dark without solid historical data. There is, however, abundant historical evidence to the opposite.

Ishtar, et. al, is a goddess who originated in ancient Babylon, and Christians are forbidden by God to have anything to do with this goddess or any pagan gods or goddesses. Furthermore, the “Mary” of Catholicism, who is esteemed as “being without sin” and actually prayed to in Catholicism, is actually nothing less than a Christianized name for this same ancient goddess, Isis, who was first known as Semiramus, before becoming the goddess. Constantine “Christianized” the pagan gods and goddesses of Rome by giving them Christian names.

This same “Mary” who was never the Biblical Mary (mother of Jesus), was also known as the Black Madonna, of whom “Madonna” the popular American singer, took her title. Madonna (who is Jewish, not Catholic), is a known Kabbalist, high priestess of Wiccan and Satanism, and, knows full well that the Black Madonna was Ishtar (Isis), et. al. of ancient Babylon. All these gods and goddesses came from ancient Babylon. In Hinduism the Black Madonna became known as the goddess Kali… And so it was with the gods and goddesses of Egypt, Rome, Greece, etc… All their religions began in ancient Babylon from the union of Nimrod and Semiramus, and Semiramus, by the way, was known as the “The Queen of Heaven!” Hmmm, where have we heard that title before?

If you don’t believe what I’ve written here, John, or what Tony has written in his posts, then I advise you to do your own research. Dig deep and go way back to the ancient mystery religions of Babylon, which have been revived today. You will be shocked at what you learn.

As for 95% of the world being “pagan” at the time of Christ. You cannot possibly substaniate such a claim. No one can. There are no substantiating documents or proof of a worldwide, synchronized, census ever being recorded, not even under Alexander… All were estimates at best. In Christ,

Kathy

Our God is Great!


 I just love the Lord Jesus Christ and I love Psalm 104. It reminds me that our God is so great and worthy of our daily praise. My meditation of him shall truly be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD. Hallelujah and Amen!

Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.

Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:

 Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:

 Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:

 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.

 Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.

 At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.

 They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them.

 Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.

 He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.

 They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst.

 By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches.

 He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.

 He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;

 And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man’s heart.

 The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted;

 Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.

 The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the conies.

 He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.

 Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth.

 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.

 The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their dens.

 Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.

 O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.

 So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.

 There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein.

 These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat in due season.

 That thou givest them they gather: thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good.

 Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust.

 Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.

 The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD shall rejoice in his works.

 He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the hills, and they smoke.

 I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.

 My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD.

 Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.

It’s a Miracle!


Praise the Lord! My wife Pat has been suffering with chest pains for the last 8 months and has been under investigation and on medication for a comdition called angina which is narrowing of the arteries in the heart. She has been unable to work during this time. The last in a series of tests about a month ago was a myocardial perfusion scan which showed a blockage in the artery of the heart. The technical wording on the report was, ‘some reversible ischaemia in the antero-apical wall with a further fixed defect in the anterior wall.’ About 2 or 3 weeks ago she had a bad angina attack and ended up being carted off in an ambulance to the Accident & Emergency Department of the local hospital before being allowed home later in the day.

So, although we both trust in the Lord, that all things happen for good to those who love Him, it, nontheless, has been a trying time!

Last week I took her to the hospital where she was to undergo an angiogram (they insert a tube and look in the heart)and then depending on the severity of the blockage, the surgeon inserts any number of stents into the artery (like hollow tubes) to allow the blood to flow – this is called an angioplas. Before leaving for the hospital we prayed once more for the Lord to heal her, in the name of Jesus, but according to His will and we set off at peace that whatever happened, our Father in heaven was controlling the situation.

I left her at the hospital at 8am and just after noon she rang me to tell me to come and pick her up. When I asked her what had happened she replied, ‘He’s done it again, they couldn’t find anything wrong’. Although I know that the Lord does heal us (he healed Pat about 2 years ago, completely removing a polyp from her ear and restoring an area of decayed bone), I was still gobsmacked and full of praise! I headed off to the hospital to pick her up, singing praise songs to the Lord on the way.

It transpires that the tube was inserted through a blood vessel in her arm into her heart and there was now no blockage showing. The surgeon was the same guy who had performed the scan and he and the nurses couldn’t believe it either. He wrote on the report, ‘ateries normal’ and he told Pat they were perfect! Wow!

The Lord doesn’t always heal us of our affirmities but when he does it is an absolutely amazing feeling, even when it is your wife! So we are just thanking Him and praising Him and giving Him all the glory! Hallelujah!

The Lord’s ways are not our ways and He does things in His own timing. not ours! Why didn’t he heal Pat 6 months ago? I don’t know! But Pat told me that while she was in the waiting room she spoke to an older lady who was waiting for the same procedure, and had an overwhelming urge to pray for her which she did. The Lord does work in mysterious ! I told her to imagine the following scenario. ‘Pat is dancing around the throne in heaven one day worshipping the Lord amongst a large group of us and she gets a tap on her shoulder. As she turns around she sees the lady from the hospital whom she had prayed for that day, whom the Lord had saved shortly afterwards.’ That would be cool wouldn’t it? Well worth all the pain and hassle!

So, our mighty God, the one true God, who knows and sees all things, and is in control of all things, and is worthy of praise for ever, has healed Pat’s heart. Hallelujah!

Love in Jesus, Tony

come out of her my people!


Jesus told us that one of the signs of His near return would be that, ‘many would be deceived’ (Mathew 24:4, Eph 5:6-11. 2 Thess 2:13) and these many He says are within the ‘church’, not the world.

‘Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name saying, ‘I am Christ’, and shall deceive many’.  Mat 24:4-5 

He told us there would be a ‘falling away’ (2 Thess 2:3) and many would be following ‘doctrines of demons’ (1 Tim 4:1) hearing what their ‘itching ears want to hear’ (2 Tim 4:3-4) and ‘grievous wolves would enter in among you, speaking perverse things … to draw disciples after themselves’ (Acts 20:29-31).

He said, ‘MANY’ would be deceived! Who do you think are the, ‘MANY’?

He also said, ‘Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord,Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven………Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophecied in thy name? and in thy name cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then I will profess unto them, I never knew you, depart from me, ye that work iniquity.’  Mat 7:21-23 

THIS IS A MOST STARTLING STATEMENT AND ONE THAT SHOULD CAUSE US TO THINK AND SEEK THE LORD AS TO IT’S MEANING.

 Who do you think Jesus is talking about here? Think about it!

He is not talking about unbelievers He is talking about church folk, ‘Christians’, who practise prophecy, cast out demons and do miracles in Jesus name. 

What group of Christians do these things and teach these things? It can’t be ‘high’ church or similar denominations that believe the gifts of the Spirit have ceased because they don’t prophecy or cast out demons etc. 

Well, I have to tell you that the Lord has shown me that these are those ‘believers’ engaged in what is called the ‘Charismatic’ or Evangelical church. You know, the ‘New Wine’, ‘Pentecostal’, ‘Vineyard’, ‘Fire’ and ‘the Annointing’, ‘Come Holy Spirit’ Brigade’, that we were amongst at one time, not knowing any difference then. To be honest, I was never at ease with all that ‘stuff’, and left it all behind once the Lord showed me the error of my ways.

It’s the same with all the so called ‘TV Evangelists’, people like, Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland, Nicky Gumbel (yes, Alpha I’m afraid is part of the deception – truth alongside error!), Mike Bickle, Joel Osteen, Andrew Womack to name but a few. They are ALL ‘ferocious wolves’, (Mathew 7:15) leading millions astray with their ‘false miracles’ and false, ‘prosperity’, and ‘word of faith’ gospels.

The Apostle Paul tells us ‘But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed’ Gal 1:8

My friends, these men and woman, are evil people, serving their god, Lucifer, and they have purposely infiltrated the ‘Christian church’ to lead people away from Jesus. You need to know this! Check it out yourself. I will list a few websites at the end of this that you can visit for yourself. It is all part of the ‘New Age’ plan to prepare the way for the their ‘christ’, known by many names, the ‘Cosmic Christ’, . The ‘Matreya’, the Fifth Budda, Krishna, the Imam Mahdi etc or as we know him, the Antichrist!

The Apostate church is here now! There has been a ‘falling away’ from the true Gospel of Jesus. Almost every church you go into will be linking with or promoting the false teachings of the likes of those mentioned above. Mysticism, or ‘Contemplative Christianity’ is the new thing. Many sincere ‘Christians’ have been and are being deceived just like Jesus told us would happen. 

The Lord says, ‘Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues’. (Rev 18:4)

We have ‘come out’ of organised religion (not without much stubbornness on my part I can tell you) and our ‘church’ is now in our house, just me, Pat my wife and Jesus, That’s cool. We have internet access to others around the world who have also obeyed the Lord and removed themselves from the false religion that is so evident today.

Jesus will be taking the first fruits of His ‘church’ with Him real soon – we will meet the Lord in the air and so forever be with the Lord! The harvest is upon us. And what we can see now is the separating of the wheat and the tares spoken of in Mathew 13. Those deceived or apostate churches, following false Gospels  are the tares! The Lord is gathering them into bundles to be burned! COME OUT OF HER!

The Lord Himself says He will send ‘strong delusion’ on those who ‘loved not the truth’ and believed ‘ a lie’ and that’s why so many cannot see the truth.

‘And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness’. 2 Thess 2:10-12

I am writing this with love in my heart in the hope that some will see the truth! But it is up to the individual what to do with it. Be a Berean! Check these things out! It isn’t easy leaving these ‘churches’ but we have to obey the Lord as our eternal future depends on it.

We have to let go of our pride, our self, our own efforts and trust FULLY in Jesus. Pat and me have both been ‘through the mill’ in the last few years but Jesus has never let us down, not once!

Please check out the web sites below. Read them and ask for revelation from the Lord.

http://watch.pair.com/ in particular the ‘Heeding Bible Prophecy’ section will show you what the New Agers etc have planned as opposed to the programme of God, who is in control of all things – any plan of the enemy can only occur if the Lord allows it!!.

http://www.letusreason.org/NAM20.htm this tells you what the New Age plan is!

http://www.atlanteanconspiracy.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=talk6&action=display&thread=106&page=1  This thread is amazing. Check out the scripture, the Book of Enoch. and everything mentioned. e.g. Operation Paperclip, Bluebeam, Highjump, vimanas etc. Google these words, you can watch lots of short videos about them on the internet.

http://www.deceptioninthechurch.com/page2.html many fascinating articles on the current deception

http://www.inplainsite.org/html/tele-evangelist_lifestyles.html check out the lifestyles of the TV evangelists

 http://www.share-international.org  just one site showing what the enemy is up to – there are many more if you google, ‘new age agenda’ or ‘new age plan’ or ‘the plan’.

Rick Warren is a major player even though he is masquerading as a Christian. Check this out http://dubroom.org/articles/003.htm

I realise there is a lot of stuff here. It has taken me years to get an understanding on what the lord has been saying to me. He has led me to others around the world who have received the same revelation, just a small ‘remnant’. Jesus said Himself , ‘Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?’ Luke 18:8

Not everyone will be saved! – only those whose name is ‘written in the Book of Life before the foundation of the earth’.  And that is a work of God, not man. This means that we can’t just say the ‘sinners prayer’ and ask Jesus into our lives. It just doesn’t work! It has to be initiated by the Lord!

I Peter 4:7 warns, ‘But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.’

Ask the Lord for discernment, that the Holy Spirit will reveal His truth to you, before it it too late!

Love in Jesus

Tony

Hello Again World!


The Lord has continued to show us His truths since my last post 10 months ago. I have been through a long period of illness (Lyme Disease) and still haven’t fully recovered. I was unable to go to work for almost a year and spent long periods just lying in bed unable to get up.  My faith was tested but thank the Lord Jesus that it never failed. We know that the Lord Jesus can heal us yet when He doesn’t it is hard to know how to react as  Christians. I chose to simply thank Him and praise Him every day and to trust that He knows best! Early on in my illness I was lying in bed, pretty ill and in pain, when I felt the Lord Jesus’ presence. I suddenly felt very calm and fell into a very peaceful sleep for a few hours. When I awoke I was still ill (He hadn’t suddenly healed me) but I just knew that I would get better, in His timing not mine!

And now, over a year later, I have returned to work and am 90% better – Thank you Lord!

We are simply living one day at a time, trusting in Jesus Christ. Our Father in heaven has and will continue to provide for us till Jesus returns, and He is returning real soon. End time prophecies are happening before our very eyes. The creation of the European Union!  The New World economic order (keep an eye on the G20) following the world financial crash is ever closer.  And keep an eye on America! This country’s economy is in the balance and the collapse of the US $ dollar seems imminent. The Apostate Church is definitely here now with almost all the ‘organised’ churches following ‘doctrines of demons’. Many have been deceived! False teachers and prophets are everywhere. The Lord has shown us that the ‘Christian Church’ has been  totally infiltrated by the New Agers and Satanists and that witchcraft is rife.

This world is spiralling dowwards at an ever increasing speed and just as in the times of Noah and Lot the LORD must act soon. He will return to punish the world and I believe this time is close at hand. And I say ‘Lord, bring it on!’ Evil men are in control of events in the world and it is going to get much worse. But whatever they have planned can only happen if God allows it and in His timing so if you are a Christian don’t despair.

The Lord is calling His people out of ‘organised religion’ with its deceptive prosperity gospels and the like. If you hear His voice today, then obey Him and ‘come out of her my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins’ (Revelation 18:4). It can be a lonely path but a blessed one! ‘Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate. Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach’ Hebrews 13:12-13

The Lord Jesus is coming back soon! We are called to ‘Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man’ Luke 21:36

Are you ready? Ready to face tribulation and suffering for Jesus? Because that will be the case for many of us. But our blessed hope is to be with Jesus in heaven and then to reign with Him forever! 

‘For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord’ 1 Thessalonian 4:16-17.

‘And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away’ (Revelation 21:4)

This is our blessed hope and so I say, ‘Come quickly Lord Jesus’. Amen!

the true meaning of Christmas


After discovering the pagan roots of Christmas I can hear  many ‘Christians’ saying, ‘Ok, we know Christmas is pagan in origin but we are celebrating the birth of Jesus and there is no harm in that. Is there?’

I used to think like that but when I discovered the truth I felt sick in the pit of my stomach!

Satan is the great deceiver and he has done a wonderful job in getting Christians to blasphene the Lord Jesus albeit unwittingly. Don’t believe me?  Then please click on the link below and you will see that the every time you wish someone ‘Merry Christmas’ you are blaspheming and ridiculing our Saviour.

true meaning of Christmas

It isn’t easy living in this fallen world. Deception is everywhere!  We need to pray for spiritual discernment so we can see the truth.

And remember also that the Bible tells us that God winks at our ignorance (Acts 17:30). What does this mean? Well I see it like this. Once we become aware that something is wrong and we change (or repent) of our actions/behaviour then the Lord overlooks our past mistakes.

Although we haven’t celebrated Christmas for a number of years it was only last night (24th December) that the Holy Spirit convinced me of the blasphemy in wishing someone ‘Merry Christmas’.

I have actually sent Christmas cards this season wishing friends and family a ‘Merry Christmas’ but I can tell you now that from now onwards the word ‘Christmas’ will not willingly be part of my vocabulary.

I love my Lord Jesus and do not want to do or say anything against Him.

After all, He is the King of kings and Lord of lords. Hallelujah!

origins of christmas


Will you be celebrating Christmas this year?

Will you be decorating your home and church, bringing a tree inside and sharing presents? 

Will you be burning the yule log, singing around the decorated tree, kissing under the mistletoe and holly, and attending a late night service or midnight mass?

If you do celebrate Christmas in this way then that’s your choice but if you call yourself a Christian then maybe you should look at the origin of all these customs.

Please click    here  to check out the origins of Christmas.

Do not be deceived into worshipping or paying homage to anything or anybody other than our Lord Jesus Christ!

Hi Guys


Hi Guys, haven’t been able to blog for a while as I haven’t been very well.

I am receiving treatment for Lyme Disease, a rather nasty bacterial infection caused by a tick bite.

The upshot is that the symproms are wide and varied but one of the main ones is general fatigue and malaise.

Which means I can’t be bothered blogging anything of note!

But, I am still praising Jesus and am confident that if it is in God’s will I will make a full recovery.

And if I don’t? Well, I will still praise Jesus anyway, and thank Him and my Father in heaven for all he has done for me.

Love in Jesus, Tony

signs of the times


Have you ever looked at the weird things going on in the world and wondered, ‘what the hecks going on?’

The credit crunch, astronomical gasoline prices, world food shortages, climate change, earthquakes, floods, wars and natural disasters just to name a few

There are sinister and dark forces at work in this world and it is a perilous time that we live in.

Many people search for answers in the stars or within the confines of fictional books such as The Davinchi Code or look to ancient soothsayers like Nostrodamus to tell them the future. 

Well I want to tell you that if you want to know the future look in the Bible and if you want to know why the world is facing so many problems at this time then that’s in the Bible too! 

If you really want to know what is going on in the world then click on the links below and have a look at the video footage.

new arrivals


We’ve had quite a few new arrivals here since my last blog and they are all of the feathered kind.

Daisybell, one of our hens, has always been prone to broodiness, especially in the summer and this year was no exception. We don’t have a cockrell so she could have sat on our girls’ eggs for ever and they wouldn’t have hatched out. Anyway, feeling sorry for old Daisybell we managed to obtain some fertile eggs from neighbouring folk and we placed these under Daisybell in her own ‘Broody Palace’

Three weeks later, the day before we were due to go on holiday, we were delighted to see Daisybell and her five new baby chicks.

She has turned out to be a really good mother and is as proud as punch with her new family. They are coming on fine although sadly, we did lose one. They are now 4 weeks old and we think we have one male and three females. I will post some more pics of the new chicks soon.

As well as the new chicks we have also welcomed 4 young Indian Runner Ducks into the family. Just 6 weeks old when we got them, they are really cute and have taken to their new enclosure like, well, ducks to water.

This is a pic of the girls on their first day with us. They were hatched in an incubator so don’t have a mummy to teach them all those ‘ducky ‘things but they are learning fast. In the 3 weeks we have had them they have trebled in size (more pics later) and we are looking forward to gathering our first duck eggs towards the end of the summer

And finally, I have already told you about my new Granduaghter, Lily. Well. she is now 4 months old and is really blossoming. We visited Lily and mum, Vicky at the end of June and they are both fine. This is my favourite pic of Lily.

 

And finally, finally! We managed to get about 80lb of honey from the Oilseed Rape fields and are just making final preparations for moving the bees to the heather.

The vegetable garden is bursting with crops (and weeds!) and it looks like we will get a good harvest this year.

We are sticking close to Jesus, living each day as it comes and trusting in Him to provide for all our needs – it’s so simple this way and stress free. And you know what – Jesus never lets us down!
