According to Wikipedia, “Saint Patrick’s Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick, is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick, the foremost patron saint of Ireland.” This doesn’t really give much information! The truth is the whole tradition of Patrick is nothing but a deception designed to make the Irish people forget their heritage and follow Roman Catholicism. Patrick’s birth name was Patricius Magonus Sucatus. When he was about 14-16 he was captured by Irish raiders and taken to Ireland where he was enslaved by them to be a herdsman. After some time, he escaped on a ship headed for Gaul where he became a disciple of Germanus of Auxerre, proclaimed another Catholic “saint,” a man criticized for leading people in pagan ways, who went to Britain preaching and setting up seminaries.
About 15 years after his escape, Patrick determined to go back to Ireland as a missionary for the Roman church. At Tara in Meath he confronted King Laoghaire and converted his daughter. In 444 he established his bishopric at Armagh. With this city as his base, placed the organization of the Irish church on its foundation. To this day Armagh is the county town of County Armagh in Northern Ireland. It is the ecclesiastical capital of Ireland – the seat of the Archbishops of Armagh, the Primates of all Ireland for the both the Roman Catholic Church and the Church of Ireland, which also considers itself Catholic and Protestant, or Reformed, more related to the Church of England, founded by Patrick. Since the time of King Henry VIII, when the Church of England broke with the Roman Church there has much blood shed in the area by both sides. In Ireland the majority of the population has remained Roman Catholic.
The Church of Ireland contends that it has reverted to the church in Ireland prior to the 12th century – that of “Celtic Christianity.” Herein lies the distinction between Christianity and Catholicism.
The book, A Calendar of Saints, by James Bently, points out that March 17th, the so-called St. Patrick’s Day was originally the day of Joseph of Arimathea, called “the Jew who gave a tomb for the body of Jesus.” He says that “nothing is known about Joseph… Here, it is said, he founded a church at Glastonbury in Somerset.”
Tracing Our Ancestors, by Frederick Haberman, points out: “Irish historians are unanimous that about 580 BC there arrived in Ulster a notable man, accompanied by an Eastern princess and a person by the name of Simon Barech. This party brought with them several remarkable things about which Ireland’s songs and legends cluster; those things were a harp (King David’s harp), and a wonderful stone—the Stone of Destiny—the Lia Phail. According to many traditions, the Prophet Jeremiah took the princesses to Spain, where one of them married a prince of Zaragossa. With the other princess he arrived in Ulster some time later. Irish tradition tells us that Jeremiah married the princess Tamar, Tea Tephi to Eochaidh, the Heremon, or head king of Ireland. Jeremiah was known to them as Ollam Fodhla. Jeremiah became the chief figure in Irish history, life and religion. He became the patriarch of Ireland. Patrick, as is well known, was not an Irishman at all, but an early missionary to Ireland, interpolated by the Roman Church to take the place of the original saint-patriarch of Ireland for reasons of their own. In Simon Barech who accompanied them we recognize Baruch the scribe, of Jeremiah 36.
Joseph of Arimathea did indeed go to Britain after the death of Y’hoshua along with Mary his mother, who was Joseph’s niece, while Mary Magdalene and company remained in France where they originally landed. He was the first to preach the “Gospel” in Britain and established Glastonbury at Avalon, where the legends of the Holy Grail, the Stone of Scone, the Sword in the Stone and King Arthur originated. The people there were easily converted because it was their heritage! Just as it is for some who are the brethren of Britain now living in America whose ancestors came here from there and established this country.
Patrick is a shill and a deception of the absolute truth. Another Catholic fabrication to keep the people in the dark as to who they are and where they came from and lead them astray from God by their pagan ways. They’ve done the same thing in America as they did there: Infiltrate and take over. The oppression and suffering caused by the Roman Catholic Church can only be compared to the bondage of Egypt when Israel was there. They cried to God for their suffering, He heard their cries and sent Moses to deliver them. God said He would lift up their skirts and show them for who they are! This prophecy has been fulfilled! He has done it! Their shame is exposed! Don’t follow in their ways but “Come out of her, my People, and don’t be partakers of her sins and thereby receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven and God has remembered her iniquities!” Rev 18:4-5 Remember what God did to Pharaoh!
“Know, therefore, this day and consider it in your heart, that the LORD He is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else!” Deut 4:39
He says this: “I hate, I despise your feast days!… Take away from Me the noise of your songs.” Amos 5:21;
