Saint Patrick’s Day and the driving away of the serpents from Ireland

The story goes that serpents attacked Patrick during a 40 day fast he was undertaking on top of a hill.  So, he chased all the serpents of Ireland into the sea with his staff. Of course, all evidence suggests that there were no literal snakes in Ireland long before Patrick arrived in 432AD.  This is a weak attempt to connect Patrick with Moses and Aaron’s battle against Pharaoh’s magi in Exo 7:8-13. Many sources interpret this as a metaphor regarding Patrick driving paganism out of Ireland. But let’s consider, what did Patrick really do?

What did Patrick really do?

“Familiar with the Irish language and culture, Patrick chose to incorporate traditional ritual into his lessons of Christianity instead of attempting to eradicate native Irish beliefs. For instance, he used bonfires to celebrate Easter since the Irish were used to honoring their gods with fire. He also superimposed a sun, a powerful Irish symbol, onto the Christian cross to create what is now called a Celtic cross, so that veneration of the symbol would seem more natural to the Irish.”

Patrick didn’t drive out paganism but meshed it with Christianity. Just as Pope Gregory I later instructed in 601AD and the Catholic Church has done since it’s inception.  For more on the history of “St. Patrick” go here.

Adaptation and Accommodation

“From the beginning the Catholic Church had proved itself adaptable and flexible in its dealings with heathens.” “There was division within the Church over the issue of how far missionaries should compromise with pagan customs in order to win converts; the Jesuits led the movement for accommodation and adaptation. Citing the early Christian and medieval practices of …Gregory I, the Jesuits struggled to win over the rest of the Church.” Early Jesuit Missionaries: A Suggestion for Further Study by PETER DUIGNAN

Jesus refers to the Pharisees as those who look good on the outside but within are full of lies, wickedness and deceit. Just as the Catholic Church since its inception has incorporated paganism into its doctrine while purporting to serve God. They look good on the outside but within are full of the dead, both physically and spiritually.

Matt 23:25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within you are full of deceit and wickedness.
Matt 23:27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you are like unto whitewashed tombs, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.

Jesus also refers to the Pharisees as serpents and vipers.

Matt 23:29-33 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! … You serpents, you generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

Patrick is credited with driving the serpents out of Ireland when in fact he brought them in!

“A Nation in Grief” – A Time of Great Tribulation

On Wednesday, February 14th it happened to be Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent and the culmination of Carnival, filled with pagan festivities. It was also Valentine’s Day, another pagan ritual. On that same afternoon a disturbed young man walked into a school and shot and killed 17 people and wounded 15 in what is now being called “one of the deadliest school shootings in modern American history.” Trump calls it a “terrible violence, hatred and evil.” In other words, Great Tribulation! “Copycat” threats are now being made to schools all around the nation. “How should one chase a thousand and two put ten thousand to flight except their Rock has sold them…?” This is all Madness of Mind!

The suspect went to his former school and pulled a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle out of his backpack. This rifle is marketed as the “Crusader,” and comes with a biblical verse from Psalm of David, 144, etched in it: “”Blessed be the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.”

Chaos and Confusion – A Sign of the Times

Oh what a time of pure chaos and confusion! This day for instance, Ash Wednesday, a day of “penance and prayer” for “Christians” to remember their mortality because after all: “from dust thou art and to dust thou shalt return” Coincidentally, it happens to land on Valentine’s Day, a day of indulgent love and sexual rituals with all the candy, surf and turf, cakes and goodies and wine you can eat and drink. What a contradiction! What are you gonna do? The Lenten period is supposed to be a time of penance, abstinence and fasting. The truth of the matter is that it’s all worthless paganism! Just leave it alone.

Jesus NOT born December 25th

Is December 25th a celebration of the birth of Jesus?

The Plain Truth about Christmas

The following is a quote from, “The Plain Truth About Christmas”:  The New Shaff-Herzog Encylopedia of Religious knowledge explains it clearly, in its article “Christmas”: “How much the date of the festival depended upon the pagan Brumalia (December 25th) following the Saturnalia (Dec 17-24), and celebrating the shortest day of the year and the ‘new sun’ cannot be accurately determined. Continue reading “Jesus NOT born December 25th”

Traditions Make Void the Word of God

The Christmas Tree, advent calendar, Christmas stocking, the mistletoe and candle light services are all traditions followed as a way of celebrating the Christmas Holiday.  God’s Word warns that traditions make void the Word of God, therefore, you should stop and ask yourself, “Is God referring to any of my traditions?”  How exactly do traditions make the Word of God “void”?

Santa Claus is coming to town so hide your children

Santa Claus or pedophile?

“Santa Claus is Coming to Town” was first sung on Eddie Cantor’s radio show in 1934 and is the third most popular Christmas song of all time.  Jolly old Saint Nick or Santa Claus was an Orthodox Catholic Priest in the 3rd century and due to his habit of secret gift giving he became the patron saint of children among other things.  When you consider that the Catholic Church is the most pedophilic organization to ever exist, the words to this song are downright scary.  How would you feel if a pedophile was saying these things to your child.

Santa Claus is Coming to town

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

He’s making a list
And checking it twice
Gonna find out who’s naughty and nice
Santa Claus is coming to town

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!

O! You better watch out!
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town


Christmas Violates Commands of God

How did Christmas, December 25th, come to be celebrated as the birth of Jesus and is this celebration a violation of God’s Commands?

Great effort and many books have been filled with arguments by scholars as to when Jesus was born, however nowhere in Scripture is any significance given to a person’s date of birth.  The festival of Christmas was not heard of until the third century and did not gain much observance until well into the fourth century. The first recorded “Christian” Christmas celebration on December 25th was in Rome in 336AD. However, by this time most of the other religions in the empire were already celebrating the birth of their gods on December 25th and had been doing so for centuries.

Santa Claus – Saint, false god or Pedophile Priest?

Who is Santa really? And why do parents completely ignore the fact that the origins of this practice are paganism, materialism, consumerism and pedophilia?

Roman Catholic Bishop "Santa Claus"
Roman Catholic Bishop Nicholas, “patron saint of children and altar boys”

With the rampant pedophilia within the Roman Catholic clergy, why isn’t the connection made between the massive child abuse and this custom of giving the children over to such a fantasy figure of a man who “knows if they’ve been bad or good”?

The image of “Santa Claus” is nothing more than a marketing ploy to make the merchants of the earth rich, while the children are taught to “pray” to him as a “false god” for all their wants and wishes and made to believe that if they’re “good” those wishes will be fulfilled. It is idolatry and evil in the eyes of God and it only serves to provoke Him to anger!

Why does God allow so much Evil in the World?

Jesus said, “I have not come but for the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel.” How did these sheep become lost? And why can’t religious leaders who profess to know God answer this question?  The prophet Isaiah says, “If they don’t speak according to His Word, it’s because there is no light in them.” Beware of false prophets! “My people have been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray…”

Shepherds Lead the Flock Astray

The following video looks at the tradition of the Christmas Tree and it being commanded against even before the time of Jesus. Religious leaders (the shepherds) don’t teach the people (the sheep) that this ancient tradition is evil to God according to His Word.

All we, Like Sheep… Isaiah 53:6

Truly “Ignorance of God is the greatest evil!” and the “reverence of God is the beginning of knowledge…” If your religious leaders are promoting a tradition that is Evil to God, they are ignorant of God and have no real reverence for Him!

God has given a time limit for evil to abide and that time is up! Now is the time to seek Him while He may be found.
