As we approach the time of the Jewish Passover and the pagan celebration of Easter, it might be a good idea to review the real story of Easter.

Truth is truth whether you or I believe it or not.

Those who love truth learn to ask questions, and many questions must be asked regarding the holiday of Easter.

Ishtar or Easter was a day that commemorated the resurrection of one of their gods that they called Tammuz, who was believed to be the only begotten son of the moon-goddess and the sun-god.

Nimrod is the first false god. He is the great grandson of Noah a descendant of Ham, Ham – Cush – Nimrod.

EZE 8:13-14, He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do. Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD’S house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.

They would make a mark on their forehead a T and go around giving the sign of a T over themselves. And to top it off they would, after 40 days kill and eat a wild boar (hello Easter Ham).

And she lands in the Euphrates, pops out of the egg and zaps a bird and turns it into an egg laying rabbit. Hello Easter bunny and Easter eggs.

BTW the Jews would stand and do the same thing to worship the sun SUN, and that meant they were turning their backs on the Temple and the LORD.

Stars and astronomy to astrology, numbers true meanings to numerology, the feasts to pagan holidays etc.

Ceremonial law related specifically to Israel’s worship.

Civil law applied to daily living in Israel.
Jesus demonstrated these principles by example.

Moral law (Ten Commandments).

Here’s the scene: The LORD had entered Jerusalem for the final time through the East gate. HE entered on a humble Donkey to fulfill scripture:

ZEC 9:9, “Rejoice greatly, daughter of Zion; cry out, daughter of Jerusalem!
Look! Your king is coming to you. He is righteous, and he is able to save.
He is humble, and is riding on a donkey.

JOH 12:13, They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting (Notice Shouting), “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”

EZE 44:1-2, Then He brought me back by the way of the outer gate of the sanctuary, which faces the east (the East gate); and it was shut. The LORD said to me, “This gate shall be shut; it shall not be opened, and no one shall enter by it, for the LORD God of Israel has entered by it; therefore it shall be shut.

LUK 19:40, But Jesus answered, “I tell you, if these become silent, the stones will cry out!”
When He approached
Jerusalem, He saw the city and wept.

Jesus replied: “I will also ask you a question, and you tell Me:
Was the baptism of John from heaven or from men? If they said From Heaven, Well then why wont they believe John the Baptist. If they say, From men, well the people would have killed them because the Jew believed rightly that John was a prophet.

LUK 20:24-26, But He detected their trickery and said:
“Show Me a Roman coin, who is inscribed on it? They said, “Caesar’s.” And He said to them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to GOD the things that are GOD’s.”

Many believe that because it is a Biblical principle there is a blessing attached. That would even be for an unbeliever.

They would make a mark on their forehead a T and go around giving the sign of a T over themselves.
