The Origins of Easter

What are the real origins of Easter? What does an egg laying bunny have to do with honoring the resurrection of Christ? Should a believer in Yahushua (Jesus) be observing Easter or Passover?

The goddess of Spring is known as Eastre or Ishtar, and is referenced in the Bible as Ashtaroth in Judges 2:13 and 1 Samuel 7:3-4. This female deity was also Nimrod’s queen, and also known as Semiramis and the Queen of Heaven. The Queen of Heaven is referenced four times in Jeremiah chapter 44. Legend has it Semiramis fell from the sky in a giant egg into the river Euphrates. To demonstrate her divinity she changed a hare into an egg laying bunny rabbit. The symbol of the egg and bunny were used by her priests in fertility rituals. Nimrod(the builder of the tower of Babel) was slain and his body parts were strewn throughout the region. Semiramis attempted to reassemble him but couldn’t find his reproductive organ. Thus, she was impregnated miraculously by Nimrod by way of the rays of the sun. She then gave birth to Tammuz on December 25th, who became the counterfeit messiah of the Babylonians. Tammuz was gored to death by a wild boar at the age of 40. To honor Tammuz, worshippers would fast for 40 days and mark their foreheads with a “t” for Tammuz. The fast would conclude on the first day of the week, a Sunday, at the vernal equinox; the holiday known as Easter. They would break their fast by eating swine because a boar had killed Tammuz. On that day priests would impregnate virgins on Ishtar’s altars and would also slay three month old infants that had been conceived from the celebration the previous year. The priests would dip eggs that were sacred to Ishtar/Semiramis into the blood of the slain infants to bring fertility and rain. Yes, this is where the tradition of coloring eggs comes from. A reference to Tammuz can be found in Ezekiel 8:14. For more detailed information on this, check out the video “The Origins of Easter” on the Youtube channel: Messenger of the Name.

One must remember, Satan deceives the whole world according to Revelation 12:9 and will confuse people into worshipping demons under the guise of honoring and worshipping the Father and true Messiah Yahushua(Jesus). Ishtar(Easter) is a demon of ancient Babylon. 

The observance of Passover, however, is actually commanded by YaHuWaH(God) and is introduced in Exodus chapter 12. The passover and the exodus is a 1500 year prophecy of the 1st coming of Yahushua the Messiah. Passover shows us that by the blood of the lamb the Israelites were delivered from bondage, judgment, and death. Likewise, the Blood of the Lamb shed on Passover at the crucifixion delivers His people from bondage, judgment, and death. Yahushua is referred to as the Lamb in 26 different verses in Revelation because He is the fulfillment of the Passover Lamb. Yahushua says in John 7:16 “My teaching is not Mine but His who sent Me.” And the teaching of the One who sent Him in Exodus 13:9 and 13:16 tells us that one is marked as frontlets between their eyes(the forehead) and on their hand by keeping and guarding Passover. This is His seal, on the forehead and on the hand. Also, we’re told in Deuteronomy 6:6-8 and Deuteronomy 11:18 that the keeping of His laws, statutes, and commandments is His seal on the forehead and on the hand. A person is either sealed by the Almighty or is marked by the beast. I am not Jewish nor am I espousing Judaism. I am simply pointing out that which is sound, Biblical doctrine and that which is not. 

How important is this matter? Paul sums it up: 

“You are not able to drink the cup of the Master and the cup of demons, you are not able to partake of the table of the Master and of the table of demons.”

(1 Corinthians 10:21)
