The Pagan Roots of Easter
Another Easter season is upon us, and though people are dealing with a pandemic quarantine, many will celebrate it; for the kids.
Now kids, is there really an Easter bunny? Does he really hide brightly colored eggs all over the yard, or around the house, for you to find and enjoy? Does he really leave a basket of goodies, chocolates, marshmallow chicks, and toys?........No.
Easter has nothing to do with any of this, nor does it really celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It was, and always has been a pagan holiday, which has been intermingled into a confusing mixture of pagan celebrations.
Those who have never been born again as Jesus speaks of in the gospel of John, and live their lives till they die, celebrating these pagan holidays; and never coming to know Christ, will find themselves jumping into the lake of fire right along with the Easter bunny.
The true significance of what the Easter holiday should be, is what Paul teaches us in scripture:
1Co 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
1Co 15:4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
1Co 15:5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:
1Co 15:6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.
1Co 15:7 After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.
1Co 15:8 And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.
Act 16:30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
Act 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
When Jesus died on the cross, he took our place, he gave himself for us, and covered our sins with his own blood. This salvation is a free gift-there's nothing we can do to earn it-all we can do is acknowledge to Him our sin-come to Him simply, acknowledge that we are sinners, ask for His forgiveness; and receive it. Then, simply ask Him to help you live for him now; and start reading the bible and applying it to your life.
He loves us to the extent, that while we were dead in sins, unholy, unthankful; he still went to the cross for us.
2Co 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
For anyone in this day, to live their entire life, and continue to celebrate the pagan practices of demonic gods and goddesses-until they end up falling into hell at their death-is a tragedy; and more so than at any time in history, because the truth is there for anyone who wants to know it. Today, we have the history and information at our fingertips, and there's really no excuse for not knowing; unless you just refuse to want to know the truth. Sadly that is the case for most people today.
The video below gives a simple clear explanation of what Easter really was in Jesus' and Herod's day, and the link below is a longer teaching on the origins of Easter.
The Truth About Easter
Christ is risen, risen indeed-I pray for those walking in darkness, that this holiday season would bring a prick to the hearts of many, and it would cause them not to waste time on bunnies, but consider their eternal souls-and come to Christ for salvation.

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me,
saith the LORD.
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto
The Victory of Our Faith
is born of God overcometh the world: and this is
the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
Who is he that overcometh the world,
but he that believeth
that Jesus is the
Son of God?
But they that wait
upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
The Whole Armor
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all,
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
