Easter Sunday (part 1)
Easter, no doubt, is esoteric. While Sunday is a human tampered fetishism fundamentally, Biblical account of creationism is crystal clear that God created a 24-hour day (of light and darkness), a 7-day week of six working days and the Sabbath day of rest concluding the week. Every day is the LORD’s.
Easter is a pagan festival held in honour of the goddess Eostre or Ostara and celebrated at the spring equinox or within the month of April. Also known as Eostre, it is thought to be a derivation from a Teutonic goddess of spring, Eastre, adopted in gross error by Christian writers about the 8th century. Only once in Acts 12:4 Easter appears in the KJV and it is the Greek word pascha (pas’-khah) Thayer Definition: the paschal feast, the feast of the Passover, extending from the 14th to the 20th day of the month Nisan. Strong’s Definition: ‘the Passover (the meal, the day, the festival or the special sacrifices connected with it).’
The Passover ritual is easily found in scripture, in Exodus 12:1-29, “And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD’S passover” [Exodus 12:11]. ‘Passover’, in Hebrew is pesach (peh’-sakh): ‘a pretermission, that is, exemption; used only technically of the Jewish Passover (the festival or the victim). Pesach comes from pasach (paw-sakh’): ‘to hop, that is, (figuratively) skip over (or spare); by implication to hesitate; also (literally) to limp, to dance.’ Verses 26 & 27 of Exodus 12, “And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service? 27 That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the LORD’S passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshipped.”
Jehovah commanded Israelites to eat this Passover to protect them from the destruction about to befall Egypt and more importantly, to adumbrate the Good Friday substitutionary death. God will always protect His own, no matter what it takes. At Easter true Christians are not involved in the fallout of the syncretism embarked by Catholicism. What Christians celebrate on Easter Sunday is Passover, which Roman Catholic aberrant dogma christened Easter, in honour of one goddess of spring.
Easter is all for Jesus who before his passion gathered the apostles in the account we read in Mark 14:24, “And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many”. Paul taught in Hebrews 9:15 “And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance”. The reason for the application of this rite even to the Church is explained in Hebrews 8:7, “For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second”. Amen!
The commission of the original sin of disobedience by our pristine parents demoted Adam from being the ordained ruler of the earth, thus placing man under satanic hegemony. Lucifer’s dominance engendered another traditional way(s) of worship, other than the one laid down by Jehovah. God forbids adoration of objects in the 2nd commandment. ‘Sunday’ and its spiritual aberrant implication is never to the veneration of Christ. In creationism it is the first day or Day One. It was when the Light was separated from darkness. This Light is the Creator. He must, of necessity, show up in Day One because He is the Alpha. In creating other days He pervades them. On the seventh day He rested, especially owning the Sabbath for Himself (as the Omega), and commanding even the lord of the earth and his wife to honour the seventh for number 7 (perfection) is God’s number.
