Is Easter Holy?

Is Easter a true holiday, or holy day, in the eyes of God?  The majority of those calling themselves “Christian” think that they practice the customs of Easter in order to worship God; however, they are dead wrong

Many were brought up to believe that Easter is a magical day celebrating Jesus’ resurrection, which involved painted eggs, the Easter Bunny, and hot cross buns.  It might spoil the fun, but every tradition surrounding Easter has its roots in paganism and, in reality, has nothing to do with Jesus at all.  In fact, if one looks up “Easter” in the dictionary, they will find the word “pagan” in the definition somewhere.  For example, Webster’s defines Easter as “originally a pagan festival in honor of the Goddess of Spring, Eastre, held in April”.

Trumps Inauguration Day Oath – His Own Condemnation

Washington DC  On January 20th, the 58th Inauguration Ceremony will take place.  The day is full of traditions, including the swearing in Oath, the primary purpose of the day.  This oath is the point at which Trump swears to “faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States” and “preserve, protect and defend” the US Constitution.

What is an Oath?  According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary an Oath is a “formal calling upon God or a god to witness to the truth of what one says or to witness that one sincerely intends to do what one says”.  The Cambridge dictionary defines an Oath as “a serious promise that you will tell the truth or that you will do what you have said.”

What or Who is the Firmament?

If we look to the Nelson’s Bible dictionary to answer this question it tells us that the Firmament is an “expanse of sky and space in which the stars and planets are set. God made the Firmament on the second day of creation to divide the waters that covered the earth from those which surrounded it (Gen 1:16).” and “…on the fourth day of creation God placed the stars, the sun, and the moon in the “firmament of the heavens.” (Gen 1:15-18)

What the Firmament reflects is the greatness of God who created it. Let’s take a look in God’s Word to see what it says and what all this might mean. “The Firmament shows forth His handiwork.” (Ps 19:1) And in the Day of Trouble/Tribulation, such as there never has been, God’s people will be delivered from evil, and those who are wise, shall shine as the brightness of the firmament and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever.” (Dan 12:1-3) It sounds like those ‘wise’ are the stars!

Y’hoshua states in Matthew 6:9, “After this manner you pray, ‘My Father, who is in Heaven, Holy is Your Name; Your kingdom come, Your Will be done, upon earth as it is in heaven… and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil…” Continue reading “What or Who is the Firmament?”
