Christianity has taken it upon itself to promote Babylonian practices through their promotion of Christmas and Easter, both of which can follow their footprints right back to Babylon — and the man who founded it, Nimrod. First, we’ll start out by establishing the Babylonian roots of Christmas, then its roots with Easter, and then take a look at why Christianity has adopted these Babylonian practices, why it doesn’t want to get rid of them, and finally, we will reveal to all the horrible human toll consequences that result from Christian Zealots who demand that people celebrate these Pagan holidays.
Let’s start out by getting a good historical perspective on Christmas:
We have to go way BACK to Noah’s time, where Nimrod was the grandson of one of Noah´s son named Ham. Now, Ham had a son named Cush who married a woman named Semiramis. Cush and Semiramis then had a son and named him “Nimrod.” After the death of his father, Nimrod married his own mother and became a powerful King.
The scriptures go on to explain that Nimrod built and organized major cities, including BABEL, Accad, and Erech, and also built Resen, Calah and Nineveh in the land of Asshur (Genesis 10:10-12), with Asshur being another name for Assyria (Micah 5:6). These cities were home to all sorts perverted practices, all of it headed up by its ruler and high priest, Nimrod.
But it is when Nimrod finally died that the Babylonian Mystery Religion continued on through his wife, Queen Semiramis. who upon Nimrod’s death, deified him as the Sun god, which became known in various cultures later as Baal ( “LORD” means Baal in Hebrew), Janus, Saturn, Baalim, Bel, Osiris, Bacchus and Molech.
And later, when Queen Semiramis gave birth to an illegitimate son, she claimed (Mythology) that he was Nimrod reborn — Nimrod Tammuz (where the Christians get their T [cross] from, Hebrew word in scripture means pole or beam) by name, also claiming that he was the promised seed of the Creator (Genesis 3:15), the savior of mankind, with Semiramis becoming the mediator between man and this “god.” And, you had to pray through her to reach him, so Nimrod was deified as the god of the sun, Queen Semiramis became the Queen of Heaven, the goddess of the moon and fertility, and Nimrod Tammuz became the savior of the world in this Mystery Babylonian Religion.
Now, Nimrod had eventually been killed by an enemy, and his body cut into pieces and sent to various parts of his kingdom. Semiramis had all of the parts gathered — except for one part that could not be found, which was his reproductive organ. Semiramis then claimed that Nimrod could not come back to life without it, and claimed that Nimrod had ascended to the sun and was now to be called “Baal,” the sun god.
Queen Semiramis also proclaimed that when used in worship, Baal would be present on earth in the form of a flame, whether candle or lamp, thus Semiramis was creating a mystery religion, with the help of the father of lies, Satan, and setting herself up as a goddess, and claiming that she was immaculately conceived. She claimed that the moon was a goddess that went through a 28 day cycle and ovulated when full, and claimed that she came down from the moon in a giant moon egg that fell into the Euphrates River, which is to have happened at the time of the first full moon after the spring equinox. Semiramis became known as “Ishtar” which is pronounced “Easter,” and her moon egg became known as “Ishtar´s egg.” Ishtar soon became pregnant and claimed that it was the rays of the sun-god Baal that caused her to conceive, bringing forth a son named Tammuz. And according to Pagan legend, after Nimrod Tammuz died, he descended into the underworld, but because of the weeping of his mother, he mystically revived in the springing forth of the vegetation in Spring (EZEKIEL 8:14), much in the same way Queen Semiramis said the evergreen tree symbolized his father’s eternal life (Jeremiah 10:1-7). And they also ate sacred cakes with the marking of a “T” or cross on the top.
Thus, a false religion developed with its sun and moon worship, astrology, priests, idolatry, mysterious rites, human sacrifice, and much more, and this post-Flood festival was part of the false religion, Mystery Babylon.
Genesis 11:4 “And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower whose top is in the heavens and make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered over all the face of the earth…And scattered them from there, over the face of all the earth…That is why its name was called Babel, because there confused the language of all the earth and from there scattered them over the face of all the earth.”
So then, ‘Babel’ means ‘confusion, and when the people were scattered, they carried their Sun god religion with them, with some building pyramids reminiscent of the tower of Babel as part of their Mystery religion. And indeed, remnants like them throughout world, including in Iraq, South and Central America, Burma and even China. And almost every idolatrous practice had its origins at Babel, as the people scattered from Babel with different languages, using different names for Nimrod and Semiramis. Some called her the Mother Goddess “Ishtar” (which is originally pronounced Easter), while in other lands, she was called Eostre, Astarte, Ostera, and Eastre, and also called the Mother goddess, Wife of Baal, Ashtaroth or Ashtoreth, and, of course, the Queen of Heaven (Judges 2:13 and Jeremiah 44:17-19). She was also worshiped as Mother Nature, the goddess of Spring, the god of fertility, and the goddess of the moon.
Although in ancient Babylon the goddess figure Semiramis was the mother of the Sumerian deity Tammuz, he is Attis to the Phoenicians, and Adonis to the Greeks, etc. In each legend, he dies young and his birth and death are honored on his birthday which coincided with the Winter Solstice, which was celebrated on December 25th. Part of the religious ritual involved cutting down a young green evergreen tree (death of tree) as a way of commemorating the premature death of Tammuz.
And just like Yirmeyahu (Jeremiah in the perverted Christian Bible) told us, this tree is then decorated in the fashion Jeremiah described.
“Thus said , “Do not learn the way of the gentiles, and do not be awed by the signs of the heavens, for the gentiles are awed by them. For the prescribed customs of these peoples are worthless, for one cuts a tree from the forest, work for the hands of a craftsman with cutting tool. They adorn it with silver and gold and they fasten it with nails and hammers so that it does not topple.”
And so, with their Tammuz tree was the rite in which the women cried for the dead sovereign. Then shortly after Jeremiah’s time, we find that this idolatry had penetrated the Hebrew temple where we see Sun Worship and “Women Weeping for Tammuz.” (Ezekiel 16:14) This sun worship is closely related to the end of the Winter Solstice, when the sun begins to stay in the sky longer.
The boughs of holly and related accessories are directly descended from the Druidic rituals and associated with the Wiccans — meaning Witchcraft. And even the ‘Yule log’ is a Babylonian word.
To learn a more thorough, in-depth perspective on Christmas, please see the articles: “Christmas or Christ-Mass, the Holiday Celebrated on December 25th With Deep Demonic, Pagan Roots” and “Do Christians Tell Lies? Take This Test To See If Yo Are Spreading Falsehoods On Accident — Or On Purpose!“
And for all you Conservatives out there, our Founding Fathers did NOT celebrate Christmas or Easter, nor was there any real celebrating this Christianized Pagan holiday called Christmas since after the Civil War: “To Founding Fathers, Christmas Was No Big Deal“
And what about Easter? Easter, which is derived from the name Ishtar, is actually closely related to the Tammuz tree, which the Christians call a “Christmas Tree,” these days. And the practice of Christians participating in sunrise services originates with an early morning worship service in which the penitents face East at the dawn — which is exactly what was seen during Ezekiel’s time when the women wept for Ishtar’s son, Tammuz.
Christianity routinely defends the sunrise Easter service, maybe not realizing they are honoring the ancient Pagan Holy Day of Ishtar that predated Christianity by many centuries (see article PROVING Christianity was NOT the original ‘sect’ spoken of in scripture, but instead, they were called the ‘Natsarim’ followers of the Way). In fact, the New Covenant clearly shows the Apostles honored Passover, while king Herod honored the Easter celebration. (Acts 12:2)
Easter has its origins in the world of the occult, with the Occult / Satanic calendar comprising of four periods of 13 weeks each. Now, Occultists believe that numbers contain inherent power, with many basing their lives on numerology, which is is also a key component of astrology, which is another system occultists follow. The conclusion is that the occult calendar is divided into 4 parts of 13 weeks each and that 13 x 4 = 52 weeks, which is exactly our calendar year.
In the occult system: the number 6 = man; the number 7 = divine,perfection or god; the number 13 = rebellion against authority and depravity.
According to 8th century scholar St. Bede (also known as the Venerable Bede\Bede, the Venerable), the name Easter is actually derived from the Scandinavian “Ostra” and the Teutonic “Ostern,” or “Eastre,” both of whom were goddesses of mythology and were identified with spring and fertility, with festivals for these goddesses celebrated on the first day of the vernal equinox — March 21. And important parts of these Pagan celebrations included gifts, the rabbit, and colored eggs — all of which represented fertility.
Easter is steeped in the Mysteries of ancient Babylon — which is an evil and idolatrous system invented by and promoted by Satan. Ishtar is the name of the Babylonian goddess for whom Easter is named, with Ishtar being another name for Semiramis — the wife of Nimrod. Semiramis and Nimrod are the ones who instituted the building of the tower of Babel, and are the co-founders of all the counterfeit religions that have ever existed after the flood. This may be why the following is said about the Great Whore (Vatican has taken over the reigns as “BABEL THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF THE OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH) “
Revelations 17:”…the great whore (Editor’s Note: Spiritual Idolatry) sitting on many waters, with whom the sovereigns of the earth committed whoring and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her whoring…And the woman was dressed in purple and scarlet and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup filled with abominations and the filthiness of her whoring…”
Yirmeyahu (Jeremiah) 7:16 “And you, do not pray for this people, nor lift up a cry or prayer for them, nor make intercession to Me, for I do not hear you. Do you not see what they are doing in the cities of Yahudah and in the streets of Yerushalayim? The children are gathering wood, the fathers are lighting the fire and the women are kneading their dough, to make cakes for the sovereigness of the heavens and to pour out drink offerings to other mighty ones, to provoke Me.”
1. In the commentary of the Ryrie Study Bible: The queen of heaven. The Assyro-Babylonian goddess Ishtar.
2. In the commentary of the NIV Study Bible: Queen of Heaven. A Babylonian title for Ishtar, an important goddess in the Babylonian pantheon.
3. In Ungers Bible Dictionary it says under the heading “Queen of Heaven” (Hebrew Meleketh hashshamayim, Jer 7:18; 44:17-19, 25) Astarte, an ancient Semitic deity, identical with Babylonian Ishtar (Venus)
In 325 AD, Emperor Constantine in the Council Nice ordered all Christian churches to celebrate the Resurrection of the Jewish Messiah on Easter Sunday, in opposition to the original followers of the Way, which were called the Natsarim , and who celebrated the Resurrection of Yahusha during the Passover [Nisan 14], which could fall on any day of the week. But the Christian Churches near Rome had abandoned the practice because they hated the Jews, and instead followed a floating date of the first Sunday after the first full moon of Spring, calling the celebration ‘Easter,’ after the Pagan goddess of Spring. And of this is verified below from the following quote from the Encarta Encyclopedia:
“An important historical result of the difference in reckoning the date of Easter was that the Christian churches in the East, which were closer to the birthplace of the new religion and in which old traditions were strong, observed [the Resurrection] according to the date of the Passover festival. The churches of the West, descendants of Greco-Roman civilization, celebrated Easter on a Sunday.
“Constantine the Great, Roman emperor, convoked the Council of Nicaea in 325. The council unanimously ruled that the Easter festival should be celebrated throughout the Christian world on the first Sunday after the full moon following the vernal equinox; and that if the full moon should occur on a Sunday and thereby coincide with the Passover festival, Easter should be commemorated on the Sunday following. Coincidence of the feasts of Easter and Passover was thus avoided.”
“The name [Easter] probably comes from Eastre, the Anglo-Saxon name of a Teutonic goddess of spring and fertility, to whom was dedicated a month corresponding to April. Her festival was celebrated on the day of the vernal equinox; traditions associated with the festival survive in the Easter rabbit, a symbol of fertility, and in colored easter eggs, originally painted with bright colors to represent the sunlight of spring, and used in Easter-egg rolling contests or given as gifts…” — Encarta Encyclopedia, article: Easter.
“Baal signifies Lord, ruler, and is used as the designation of a Phoenician deity. Among the Chaldeans he was called Bell, or Belus. He was regarded as the generative, controlling principle, of which the sun or the planet of Jupiter was the symbol, and to the people the direct object of worship. With him was associated a female deity, Ashtaroth, the Greek Astarte, called Queen of heaven, the moon. But as Baal was also associated with the planet Jupiter, so was Ashtaroth with Venus.” — From Romans Commentary by Charles Hodge for Romans 11:4
And here is an actual quote from Constantine showing Rome’s hatred for the Jews.
“And truly, in the first place, it seems to everyone a most unworthy thing that we should follow the customs of the Jews in the celebration of this most holy solemnity, who, polluted wretches! having stained their hands with a nefarious crime, are justly blinded in their minds. It is fit, therefore, that rejecting the practice of this people, we should perpetuate to all future ages the celebration of this rite, in a more legitimate order, which we have kept from the first day of our “Lord’s” passion even to the present times. Let us then have nothing in common with the most hostile rabble of the Jews.” (Council of Nicea, pg. 52.)
[The sculptor of the Statue of Liberty was Auguste Bertholdi. He belonged to the Masonic Lodge in Paris. Before beginning the statue of liberty project, Bertholdi was seeking a commission to construct a giant statue of the goddess “Isis,” the Egyptian Queen of Heaven, to overlook the Suez canal. The statue of Isis was to be of “a robed woman holding aloft a torch”] — The preceding is from: “IS THE STATUE OF LIBERTY PAGAN?” by William Dankenbring

NEWS BRIEF: “Among all the women who have ever lived, the mother of Jesus Christ is the most celebrated, the most venerated…Among Roman Catholics, the Madonna is recognized not only as the Mother of God, but also, according to modern Popes, as the Queen of the Universe, Queen of Heaven, Seat of Wisdom, and even the Spouse of the Holy Spirit.” — (Time Magazine, “Handmaid or Feminist?”, December 30, 1991, p. 62-66).
The teachings of Semiramis’ Mystery Religion of mother and child:
- That Semiramis herself was the way to Elohim, adopting the title ”Queen of Heaven”.
- That she alone could administer salvation to sinners through various sacraments, such as the sprinkling of set-apart (Christians call “holy“) water.
- That her son Tammuz was tragically slain by a wild boar during a hunting trip.
- That he was, however, resurrected from the dead forty days later. Thus, each year afterward, the temple virgins would enter a forty-day fast as a memorial to Tammuz’ death and resurrection (weeping for Tammuz).
- After the forty-day fast, a joyful feast called ‘Ishtar’ took place, with colored eggs exchanged and eaten as a symbol of the resurrection (Easter). An evergreen tree was displayed and a Yule log was burned (Christmas[s]). Finally, hot cakes marked with the letter T (to remind everybody of Tammuz) were baked and eaten.
Now let’s turn to the beginnings of Christianity, where even their antisemitic early “church” (as opposed to “Assembly”) leaders point out that the original followers of the Way were NOT Christian, but instead, were called the ‘Natsarim.”
Here starts the beginning of an article written by Monroe W. Strickberger: The Role of Antisemitism In Early Christianity (pdf)
“My purpose in writing this article was to gather material showing that antisemitism was not a tangential or accidental event in the development of Christianity, but served important purposes. Instead of a diversion, antisemitism quickly became a necessity, for without it, Christianity would have been unable to gain credibility and support, and justify itself as an ancient divinely revealed religion.”
“Assemblies of the “Jewish Christians,” faithful to basic Jewish practices, remained SEPARATE (Editor’s Note: My Emphasis) from Gentile Christian churches, and were eventually declared “heretics“…Each group, depending on its description by a Christian historian, professed distinctive Jewish-Christian beliefs and practices. (Luomanen, see also Horrell 2000). Nonetheless, whatever their denomination, Jewish Christians were, in due course, officially labeled heretics by Gentile Christian Fathers (Eusebius, ca 330, Ecclesiastical History 2.27).”
And note the word “Vatican, for it is actually defined as “Prophecy.” So, “Vatican City” actually means “City of Prophecy,” with the word “Vatic” found in a standard English dictionary and is identified with Prophecy.
In fact, the whole of Christianity can be seen as one of antisemitism at its very CORE, with the Vatican as the Great Whore persecuting throughout its history all those opposed to its Babylonian-inspired Mystery Religion, torturing many millions upon millions, and murdering up to 50,000,000 million or more, and doing all this while enriching itself and perverting the Truth and the Way to Eternal Life.
Here is an excerpt from the book, “Christian Antisemitism: A History of Hate“:
These conclusions “can now be fully justified by the most up-to-date scholarship, Christian as well as Jewish.’ Nicholls writes, ‘Many Jewish writers have said, quite simply, that the Nazis chose the Jews as the target of their hate because two thousand years of Christian teaching had accustomed the world to do so. Few Christian historians and theologians have been sufficiently open to the painful truth to accept this explanation without considerable qualification. Nevertheless, it is correct.’ Christian Antisemitism traces, over two millennia, the growing domination of Western culture by the Christian ‘myth’ (as Nicholls calls it) about the Jews, and shows how it still exerts a major influence even on the secularized ‘post-Christian world.’
And your Christian Bibles are corrupted with false names of people, false transliterations of words, and false Names of the Jewish Messiah, and of His Father. In FACT, holy is NOT the original Hebrew word (which Heaven speaks!) used to DISTINGUISH followers of Elohim (in YOUR Bibles as “LORD [pdf]),” which in Hebrew means ‘Baal‘), but, instead we are the Set-Apart-Ones, who are to be Set-Apart to obedient to the Set-Apart Father, Whom sent His Only Begotten Son, Ha’Mashiach, or ‘Anointed One,’ as the Set-Apart Messiah, Who later, after He had been murdered then risen from the dead, sent His Set-Apart Spirit to live in us after we are IMMERSED UNDER WATER in the Name of the of Yahusha Messiah to be receives as Set-Apart Ones unto Eternal Life And, we will be received with welcome in the Kingdom of Heaven, IF we continue steadfast in the faith till the end of our days, just as Paul claimed he accomplished at the end of his days, before he was murdered.
And since the Vatican (Christianity) also promotes the concept of the ‘Trinity,” which is also from Babel, instead of binitarianism, which is the truth, we can fully establish that she is the Great Whore spoken of in scripture as prophesy. And, she and Christianity promote those “mysteries,” too!
There are 15 decades of prayer for a total of 150 recitations. And during each decade of ten recitations, the Catholic contemplates on one of the “mysteries” of the church, as follows:
The Fifteen Mysteries of the Rosary are divided into three groups: the joyful, the sorrowful and the glorious.
Five Joyful Mysteries
The Mystery of Annunciation
The Mystery of Visitation
The Mystery of the Birth of the Lord
The Mystery Of the Presentation in the Temple
The Mystery of Finding Jesus in the Temple
The 5 Sorrowful Mysteries
The Mystery of the Agony in the Garden
The Mystery of the Scourging Pillar
The Mystery of the Crowning with Thorns
The Mystery of Jesus carrying his Cross
The Mystery of Crucifixion
The 5 Glorious Mysteries
The Mystery of the Resurrection
The Mystery of the Ascension of our Lord
The Mystery of the Descent of the Holy Spirit
The Mystery of the Assumption Of the Blessed Virgin
The Mystery of the Coronation of the Blessed Virgin as Queen of Heaven
“The Mystery of the Trinity is the central doctrine of the catholic church. Upon it are based all the teachings of the church” — [Handbook for todays Catholic Page 16]
These are some of the Mysteries of Babylon, but there is a Mystery upon which all these Mysteries are based, and is a Mystery that is the root of all the wine in Babylon.
This is an excerpt from the article entitled, “From the Tower of Babel to False Religions in the End Time“:
[Archaeological studies revealed the ancient Babylonians had built pyramid-like structures called Zigguruts for the purpose of observing the planets in motion. The Tower of Babel was built for astrological purposes. “The earliest known astrological records date back to Babylon in 1645 BC, and the earliest horoscope to 410 BC. Astrology’s origins can also be traced to several other locations and cultures, including Egypt, which developed sophisticated timekeeping and calendar science; Greece, where Ptolemy authored influential astrological and astronomical texts; and Rome, where many of the most learned men-including two emperors-were astrologers who wrote laws and counseled citizens based on the Stars.”]
It is a FACT that the world’s religions can be traced back to astrolatry, the worship of the sun, moon, stars, and planets, and all of these were especially popular was BACK in Babylon, and can be traced back to Nimrod at the Tower of Babel.
Ancient religions of astrolatry (the worship of planets or stars) popularized the belief people possess immortal souls that could be separated from their bodies at death and ascend to the heavens, which formed the basis for astrology, the belief in reincarnation, necromancy, astral projection, “ascended masters,” and many forms of Nature Worship (pantheism).
NOTE: ALL ancient mystery religions believe in soul-body separation and can be traced back to the religion of Nimrod.
The religion of Nimrod also popularized this pagan trinity:
Nimrod Tammuz Semiramis
|EGYPT||RA||OSIRIS, HORIS||ISIS, HATHOR|
To be certain, it was the city of Babylon that was the seat of Satan, and continued to be until the fall of the Babylonian and Medo-Persian Empires, when he shifted his capital to Pergamos in Asia Minor, where it was written about by John (Yahuchanan) in Rev 2:12,13:
“And to the messenger of the assembly in Pergamos write, “I know your works and where you dwell, where the throne of Satan is…where Satan dwells.”
In B.C. 133,when Attalus, the Pontiff and King of Pergamos, died, he bequeathed the headship of the “Babylonian Priesthood” to Rome. And when the Etruscans came to Italy from Lydia, (which is the region of Pergamos), they brought along with them the Mystery Babylonian Religion with its rites. They then set up a Pontiff who was head of the priesthood, which later the Romans accepted their civil ruler. And Julius Caesar was made Pontiff of the Etruscan Order in B.C. 74, and in B.C. 63 was made “Supreme Pontiff” of the “Babylonian Order,” thus becoming heir to the rights and title of Attalus, Pontiff of Pergamos, who actually made Rome his heir by will.
Thus the first Roman Emperor became the head of the “Babylonian Priesthood,” and Rome the successor of Babylon.
And here is Tammuz Nimrod… Satan’s Counterfeit:
Ezek (Yehezqel) 8:14,15.
“And He said to me, “You are to see still greater abominations which they are doing.” And He brought me to the door of the north gate of the House of and I saw women sitting there, weeping for Tammuz.
Jeremiah 7: “The children are gathering wood, the fathers are lighting the fire and the women are kneading their dough, to make cakes for the sovereigness of the heavens and to pour out drink offerings to other mighty ones, to provoke Me.”
Yirmayahu (Jere) 44:4: “And I sent to you all My servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, saying, “Please do not do this abominable matter that I hate!” But they did not listen or incline their ear, to turn from their evil, not to burn incense to other mighty ones.
Jere 7:18. “But since we ceased burning incense to the sovereigness of the heavens…”
Now, when Attalus, the Pontiff and King of Pergamos, died, in B.C. 133, he bequeathed the headship of the “Babylonian Priesthood” to Rome. When the Etruscans came to Italy from Lydia, (the region of Pergamos), they brought with them the Babylonian religion and rites. They set up a Pontiff who was head of the priesthood. Later the Romans accepted this Pontiff as their civil ruler. Julius Caesar was made Pontiff of the Etruscan Order in B.C. 74. In B.C. 63, he was made “Supreme Pontiff” of the “Babylonian Order,” thus becoming heir to the rights and title of Attalus, Pontiff of Pergamos, who made Rome his heir by will.
Thus the first Roman Emperor became the head of the “Babylonian Priesthood,” and Rome the successor of Babylon.
“The use of temples, and these dedicated to particular saints, and ornamented on occasions with branches of trees; incense, lamps, and candles; votive offerings on recovery from illness; holy water; asylums; holy days and seasons, use of calendars, processions, blessings on the fields; sacerdotal vestments, the tonsure, the ring in marriage, turning to the East, images at a later date, perhaps the ecclesiastical chant, and the Kyrie Eleison are all of pagan origin, and sanctified by their adoption into the Church.” — An Essay on The Development of the Christian Doctrine John Henry “Cardinal Newman” p.373.
Doctor Alexander Hislop, in his classic work, The Two Babylon’s, page 105, writes this: “To conciliate the Pagans to nominal Christianity, Rome, pursuing its usual policy, took measures to get the Christian and Pagan festivals [that’s the Sabbath and Sunday] amalgamated, and … to get Paganism and Christianity now far sunk in idolatry in this as in so many other things, to shake hands.” He says further: “A glance at the main pillars of the Papal system will sufficiently prove that its doctrine and discipline in all essential respects have been derived from BABYLON.”
“One cannot well refer to those cults of Babylon and Egypt and the rest as DEAD religions. For the echo of their ancient thunder is still to be heard reverberating in almost every form of faith existing today. Ancient Babylonian image worship is in the church today. Ancient Babylonian sun worship is there. Ancient Babylonian belief in the immortality of the soul is there. Yes, the echo of that thunder is still heard in the church today!” — Lewis Brown says this in The Believing World, page 112.
Jesse Hurlbut laments the results of Constantine’s making Christianity the state religion, free from all persecution. From that time, he points out, the church became totally subverted by politics and self-seeking opportunists.
“…the establishment of Christianity as the state religion became a curse.
“Everybody sought membership in the church, and nearly everybody was received. Both good and bad, sincere seekers after God and hypocritical seekers after gain, rushed into the communion. Ambitious, worldly, unscrupulous men sought office in the church for social and political influence….
‘The services of worship increased in splendor, but were less spiritual and hearty than those of former times. The forms and ceremonies of PAGANISM GRADUALLY CREPT INTO THE WORSHIP. Some of the OLD HEATHEN FEASTS BECAME CHURCH FESTIVALS WITH CHANGE OF NAME AND OF WORSHIP” (Hurlbut, The Story of the Christian Church, p. 79, (Editor’s Note: Emphasis Mine).
Will Durant, historian, wrote:
“…the god Christ was assimilated to the religious and philosophical traditions of the Hellenistic mind. Now the PAGAN WORLD — even the anti-Semitic world — could accept him as its own.
“CHRISTIANITY DID NOT DESTROY PAGANISM; IT ADOPTED IT. The Greek mind, dying, came to a transmigrated life in the theology and liturgy of the Church…the Greek mysteries passed down into the impressive mystery of the Mass. Other PAGAN cultures contributed to the syncretic result. From Egypt came the idea of a divine trinity…from Egypt the adoration of the Mother and Child…From Phrygia came the worship of the Great Mother….The Mithraic ritual so closely resembled the eucharistic sacrifice of the Mass that Christian fathers charged the Devil with inventing these similarities to mislead frail minds. Christianity was the last great creation of the ancient PAGAN world” (p. 595).
H. G. Wells, in his Outline of History, writes this:
“The observance of the Jewish Sabbath, again, TRANSFERRED TO THE MITHRAIC SUN-DAY, is an important feature of many Christian cults…He [Editor’s Note: Yahusha] did not say a word about the worship of his mother Mary in the guise of ISIS, THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN. Much that is most characteristically Christian [so-called] in worship and usage, he ignored. Skeptical writers have had the temerity to deny that [Editor’s note: Yahusha] can be called a Christian at all” (p. 445, emphasis mine, of course).
Writes Alexander Hislop in The Two Babylon,
“The Christmas tree, now so common among us, was equally common in Pagan Rome and Pagan Egypt. In Egypt that tree was the palm tree; in Rome it was the fir; the palm tree denoting the Pagan Messiah, as Baal-Tamar, the fir referring to him as Baal-Berith. The mother of Adonis, the Sun-God and great mediatorial divinity, was mystically said to have been changed into a tree, and when in that state to have brought forth her divine son. If the mother was a tree, the son must have been recognized as the ‘Man the branch.’ And this entirely accounts for the putting of the Yule Log into the fire on Christmas Eve, and the appearance of the Christmas tree the next morning” (page 97).
Tree worship was very common among the ancients. Says Festivals, Holy Days, and Saints’ Days, “The Christmas tree…recapitulates the idea of tree worship…gilded nuts and balls symbolizing the sun…all the festivities of the [heathen] winter solstice have been aabsorbed into Christmas Day…the use of holly and mistletoe to the Druidic ceremonies; the Christmas tree to the honours paid to Odin’s sacred fir….” (p. 236).
Writes Collins in Christmas Folklore:
“This idea of decorating homes on holidays is both worldwide and age-old….So the Saturnalian laurel, the Teutonic holly, the Celtic mistletoe, and the Mexican poinsettia have all attached themselves to this polyglot ceremony…
“Many of the plants used at Christmas are SYMBOLS OF FERTILITY. Certainly any evergreen (fir, yew, laurel) with its ability to return verdure in the barrens months is appropriate, but by far the most interesting are the holly, the ivy, and the mistletoe. Holly, with its pricking leaves, white flowers, and red berries symbolizes the male reproductive urge. In fact, in the English carols…the holly is the male and the ivy is the female. This use of the plants was most likely BORROWED by the Christians along with other customs of the ROMAN SATURNALIA” (p. 22-23)
Ivy, holly’s mate, in ancient Grecian rites took its name from the girl who danced with such abandon and joy before Dionysius that she fell dead at his feet, then the pagan god, moved by her dance, turned her into the ivy that she might entwine whatever is near. Dionysius was the Greek version of the god of wine and revelry, another form of Bacchus, Tammuz, or Nimrod!
Says van Renterghem, further:
“By absorbing such PAGAN FEASTS AND TRADITIONS, the Christian Church could subtly bring in its own theology: in this case, establishing the good Saint Nicholas, bringer of love and gifts, while grudgingly allowing the presence of the Olde Religion’s Herne/Pan, but only as a slave to Saint Nicholas. Thus, in parts of Europe, the Church turned Herne into Saint Nicholas’ captive, chained Dark Helper; none other than Satan, the Dark One, symbolic of all evil….
“In Holland and several other European countries, the Saint Nicholas figure is still highly esteemed. He appears as a tall, dignified, bearded, white-haired old man, dressed as a Catholic bishop, complete with cloak, mitre, and pastoral staff, a seemingly genuine Catholic saint, but with a bizarre, quite unsaintly habit of riding through the skies on a white horse, followed by his Dark Helper. It seems that our Catholic saint inherited some of these customs from the pagan god Wodan, who had also been a BEARDED, WHITE-HAIRED OLD MAN, also dressed in a hat and cloak, carried a staff (or spear), rode a white horse, and dragged along the same dark slave/helper on a chain” (p. 97).
Who was this Odin, or Woden, the original “Santa Claus“? He was the chief god of Norse mythology, a fierce fighter who carried a spear as his special weapon, and renown as a mighty hunter, and for his magical powers. Here is the declaration the below author declares of the connection between Odin/Wodan and Saint Nicholas:
“Wodan/Odin:…man’s friend, the mysterious Schimmel rider. Dragging his dark and devilish slave Eckhart along on a chain, he rides through the stormy skies. He leads the Wild Hunt, eluding, and finally subjugating, the powers of evil. He also wears a broad-brimmed hat, a wide mantel, holds his spear, and rides through the skies (replace his hat with a bishop’s mytre and the spear with a crozier, and we have the Dutch Saint Nicholas)” (p. 111).
In other words, Odin was another name for Nimrod.
Says Alexander Hislop, “The Wodan or Odin of Scandinavia can be proved to be the Adon of Babylon” (The Two Babylons, p. 133-134). Nimrod, Adon, or Adonis, of Babylon was the great “war-god.” Odin was the same. Nimrod, in the character of Bacchus, was the god of wine. Odin was said to partake of no other food but wine. The name of one of Odin’s sons, Balder, indicates the meaning of Odin’s own name. Balder is a form of the Chaldee Baal-zer, “The seed of Baal.” The Hebrew “z” in the later Chaldee frequently became a “d.” Baal and Adon both signify “Lord.” Since Balder is the “son of Baal,” as well as the “son of Adon,” or “Odin,” then Baal, Adon, and Odin must be the same person — representative of Nimrod, the first human to be deified and proclaimed by the pagans as a “god” after the Deluge!
Writes T. G. Crippen in Christmas and Christmas Lore,
“Now in December and the beginning of January there were several festivals which were intimately associated with the daily life of the Roman people. First, from the 17th to the 21st December, was the Saturnalia, the great Roman holiday….One might call it the Feast of Topsy-turveydom; when slaves were allowed for a few days to enjoy the semblance of freedom, were waited upon by their masters, and chose from amongst themselves a mock king to preside over their revels. Next, on the 22nd, came Sigillaria, the Feast of Dolls, when a fair was held, and dolls and other toys, mostly of earthenware, were given to children. Then, on 25th, came Brumalia, otherwise Dies Natalis Invicti Solis, The Birthday of the Unconquered Sun, when the days began to lengthen after the solstice…It is believed to have been instituted … by the emperor Aurelian, in honour of Mithras, the Persian sun-god…” (p. 8-9).
FACTS CONCERNING THE NEW ROMAN RELIGION CALLED, “CHRISTIANITY.”
- As early as 200 BCC, there were Pagan worshipers of Serapis that called themselves “Christians.”
- There were “Christians” in Egypt, Gnostic Sun-worshipers who knelt before huge ankhs (resembles the Christian Cross, with a loop above the transverse bar)
- The Serapis cult were worshipers of a Graeco-Egyptian sovereign and used this symbol at Alexandria, where the Emperor Hadrian wrote from Alexandria, saying: “Those who worship Serapis are Christians and those who call themselves Bishops of ‘Christ’ are vowed to Sarapis.”
- Alexandria was the launching point for this new fusion of a blended form of the Way of Yahusha with Babylon-inspired religions as we know today called, ‘Christianity,’ with the word “Christos” directly related to Krishna, Crestos and Chreston. These words literally mean “shining,” as they refer to the sun, with Krishna being the sun deity of the Hindu religion.
- Clement of Alenxandria said, “All who believe in Christ are called ‘Chestoi,’ that is good men.”
- Rome was the center of Christos Mithras worship.
- The word ‘Christianos’ was used in the Greek text as a device of scorn, since in the ancient world it conveyed a much different meaning that it does today.
- The use of the word ‘Christianos’ was a derisive, scornful label than meant they were like gullible, dumb, ‘beasts’ or ‘cretins.’
- Cretin: Noun — 1. A person suffering from cretinism. 2. A stupid, obtuse, or mentally defective person.; origin <French; Franco-Provencal dreitin, restin human being, literally, Christian (hence one who is human despite deformities) [Dictionary.com]
- Cretin: Noun — 1. Old-fashioned — a person afflicted with cretinism 2. Offensive — a person considered to be extremely stupid; From French cretin, from Swiss French crestin, from Latin Christianus Christian, alluding to the humanity of such people, despite their handicaps [Word English Dictionionary]
- Osiris and Mithras were both called “Chrestos,” which meant “good.”
- The word was adopted from Gnostic Paganism: The inscription “CHRESTOS” can be seen on a Mithra’s relief in the Vatican.
- During the time of Marcion, which war about 150 CE, Justin Martyr said that “Christians” were “Chrestor,” or “good men.”
- The Vatican was built upon ground that was previously devoted to the worship of Mithra (600 B.C.)
- The Orthodox Christian hierarchy is virtuously identical to the Mithraic version.
- Virtually all of the elements of Orthodox Christian rituals, from wafer, alter, doxology, etc. were all adopted from the Mirtha and earlier Babylonian Pagan Mystery Religions.
- Emperor Constantine brought leading religious leaders together to strengthen his kingdom by uniting them all through a common Faith of part Way of Yahusha mixed together with part of his Babyonian-inspired religions, and then proclaimed that Christmas (Mirthras/Osiris/Baal-the Lord) was to be celebrated on December 25th, during the Winter Solstice.
- Easter (Ishtar), also known as the mother of Baal (The Lord), which is pronounced, “Easter,” was a day that commemorated the resurrection of Tammuz, which is the sovereign of the Cross and represents the letter “T” in his name.
- The Tau cross was a symbol of the Roman sovereign Mithras and the Greek sovereign Attis, with their forerunner again being Tammuz, the Babylonian solar or sun sovereign, who was associated with fish, and the “T” for the cross, and being a solar sovereign, his death and resurrection was celebrated every summer (Easter).
- Christianity as we know it today is a blend of Catholicism and Babylonian Mystery Religions that all started with Nimrod, Tammuz and Semiramis, with Constantine demanding obedience to his mandates of all bishops, elders and teachers, all of which were appointed by him. If any Jew wanted to become a Christian, he must adhere to Constantine’s Creed — 325 C.E.
- Constantine’s Creed: “I renounce all customs, rites, legalisms, unleavened breads and sacrifices of lambs of the Hebrews, and all the other feasts of the Hebrews, sacrifices, prayers, aspirations, purifications, sanctifications, and propitiations, and fasts and new moons, and Sabbaths, and superstitions and hymns and chants, and observances and synagogues, absolutely everything Jewish, every Law, rite and custom and if afterwards I shall wish to deny and return to Jewish superstition, or shall be found eating with Jews, or feasting with them or secretly conversing and condemning the Christian religion instead of openly confuting them and condemning their faith, then let the trembling of Cain and the leprosy of Gehazi cleave to me, as well as the legal punishments to which I acknowledge myself liable. And may I be an anathema in the world to come, and my soul be set down with Satan and the devils.”
- Furthermore, any follower of the “Jewish Messiah” (Yahusha Ha’Mashiach) who wanted to join the “holy community” was compelled to adopt a different set of rules and customs: “I accept all customs, rites, legalisms, and feasts of the Romans, sacrifices, prayers, purifications with water, sanctifications by Pontificus Maxmus (High Priests of Rome), propitiations, and feasts, and the New Sabbath “So! dei” (Day of the Sun), all new chants and observances, and all the foods and drinks of the Romans, every new law, rite and custom, of Rome, and the New Roman Religion.”
Wikipedia — Sol Invictus: The Philocalian calendar of AD 354 gives a festival of “Natalis Invicti” on 25 December. There is limited evidence that this festival was celebrated before the mid-4th century. The idea that Christians chose to celebrate the birth of Jesus on 25 December because this was the date of an already existing festival of the Sol Invictus was expressed in an annotation to a manuscript of a work by 12th-century Syrian bishop Jacob Bar-Salibi. The scribe who added it wrote: “It was a custom of the Pagans to celebrate on the same 25 December the birthday of the Sun, at which they kindled lights in token of festivity. In these solemnities and revelries the Christians also took part. Accordingly when the doctors of the Church perceived that the Christians had a leaning to this festival, they took counsel and resolved that the true Nativity should be solemnised on that day.”
” Invictus (“Unconquered, Invincible“) was an epithet for several deities of classical Roman religion, including the supreme deity Jupiter, the war god Mars, Hercules, Apollo and Silvanus. It had been in use from the 3rd century BC. The Roman cult to Sol is continuous from the “earliest history” of the city until the institution of Christianity as the exclusive state religion.
HISTORY: The earliest mention of a Serapis is in the disputed death scene of Alexander (323 BC). Here, Serapis has a temple at Babylon…
the cult was forbidden by the Theodosian decree.
The early Alexandrian Christian community appears to have been rather syncretic in their worship of Serapis and Jesus and would prostrate themselves without distinction between the two. A letter inserted in the Augustan History, ascribed to the Emperor Hadrian, refers to the worship of Serapis by residents of Egypt who described themselves as Christians, and Christian worship by those claiming to worship Serapis, suggesting a great confusion of the cults and practices:
The land of Egypt, the praises of which you have been recounting to me, my dear Servianus, I have found to be wholly light-minded, unstable, and blown about by every breath of rumour. There those who worship Serapis are, in fact, Christians, and those who call themselves bishops of Christ are, in fact, devotees of Serapis. There is no chief of the Jewish synagogue, no Samaritan, no Christian presbyter, who is not an astrologer, a soothsayer, or an anointer. Even the Patriarch himself, when he comes to Egypt, is forced by some to worship Serapis, by others to worship Christ.
THE COUNCIL OF NICAEA 325AD CREATES THE DOCTRINE AND THE GOD — From Cuthulan’s Blog
About four years prior to chairing the Council, Constantine had been initiated into the religious order of Sol Invictus, one of the two thriving cults that regarded the Sun as the one and only Supreme God (the other was Mithraism). Because of his Sun worship, he instructed Eusebius to convene the first of three sittings on the summer solstice, 21 June 325 (Catholic Encyclopedia, New Edition, vol. i, p. 792), Sabinius, Bishop of Hereclea, who was in attendance, said,”Excepting Constantine himself and Eusebius Pamphilius, they were a set of illiterate, simple creatures who understood nothing”(Secrets of the Christian Fathers, Bishop J. W. Sergerus, 1685,1897 reprint). It was at that puerile assembly, and with so many cults represented, that a total of 318 “bishops, priests, deacons, subdeacons, acolytes and exorcists” gathered to debate and decide upon a unified belief system that encompassed only one god (An Apology for Christianity , op. cit.).
The names of 53 gods were tabled for discussion. “As yet, no God had been selected by the council, and so they balloted in order to determine that matter… For one year and five months the balloting lasted…” (God’s Book of Eskra, Prof. S.L. MacGuire’s translation, Salisbury, 1922, chapter xlviii,paragraphs 36, 41).
Constantine returned to the gathering to discover that the presbyters had not agreed on a new deity but had balloted down to a shortlist of five prospects: Caesar, Krishna,Mithra, Horus and Zeus (Historia Ecclesiastica, Eusebius, c.325). Constantine was the ruling spirit at Nicaea and he ultimately decided upon a new god for them. To involve Celtic/Gaulic factions, he ruled that the name of the great Druid god, Hesus,(Greeks and Romans worshipped this god as Zeus) be joined with the Eastern Saviour-god, Krishna (Krishna is Sanskrit for Christ), and thus Hesus Krishna would be the official name of the new Roman god. A vote was taken and it was with a majority show of hands (161 votes to 157) that both divinities became one God.(Historia Ecclesiastica, Eusebius, c.325)
How many people go into financial difficulties? How many fires are started BECAUSE of Christmas celebrations? And how many people get injured, or killed BECAUSE they celebrated Christmas? One could argue that the entire world is depended upon the Christmas holiday in one way or another economically, since the few weeks surrounding Christmas determines a cornucopia of business decisions, including whether businesses will hire, fire or close down their doors for ever. And the Christians who use Charles Dickenson’s “Scrooge” (Scrooge was a Jew) label or other label to try in intimidate others, it is YOU who are fostering Spiritual Idolatry upon the entire world as ‘Little Whores’ of the Great Whore!
In conclusion, Christianity is based upon the Babylonian Mystery Religion of Nimrod/ Tammuz/Semiramis, with the Great Whore, the Vatican, spreading Babylonian abominations throughout the world, with Little Whores spreading other Babylonian-inspired abominations throughout the world.
And, remember also the times when the prophets (Psalms 137:8; Isaiah 47:1; Jeremiah 50:42; 51:33; Zachariah 2:7) called Israel the “daughter of Babel.” And also rremember that Elohim called Abram (Genesis 11:31; Nehemiah 9:7) out of Babylon (Ur, within the Babylonia plains).
So, what’s in a name, anyway –Babylon, Nimrod Tammuz or otherwise? Yasha-Yahu (Isaiah) means “Salvation of Yah.” Yirme-Yahu (Jeremiah) means “Exultation of Yah.” Eli-Yahu means “My El is Yahuah.” Mattith-Yahu (Mathew) means “Gift of Yah.” Yahu-dah (Judah) means “Yah be Praised. The name Jezebel means [Woman of Baal]. This woman led Israel into national apostasy to follow other sovereigns. There was no rain in Israel for 1260 days. [James 5:17]. Just as prophesied by Moses should Israel go after other sovereigns. [Deu 11:16,17].
Natsar = nun, Tsadee, resh
Nazir = nun, zayin, yod, resh
The original Hebrew for “Nazarene” is based upon the root word, “Natsar,” which means to ‘watch,’ and this is because the area around the burg Natsareth was named for it, hence the word “Gennetsaret” (vale of Netsar), which refers to the whole district, with the town being situated on high ground, and providing a panoramic view of the surroundings.
And the “brow of the hill” that Yahusha’s townfolk tried to throw Him over gave the name to the town itself, Natsareth (natsar, the root), and hence means “watchtower,” with the Natsarim by extension being “watchmen,” fulfilling the prophecies of YashaYahu 11:1, YirmeYahu 31:6, and Zec. 6:12. And His actual NAME is revealed at ZekarYah 3 (ZekarYah 3: 6 And the messenger of witnessed to Yahusha, saying…”Now listen, Yahusha the high priest, you and your companions who sit before you, for they are men of symbol. For look, I am bringing forth My Servant — the Branch.”)
The change in vowels forms the root “netser,” meaning “branch,” and it’s like a synonym, but has the same spelling.
“He shall be called a Natsarene” (Mt. 2:23) is referring to “netser,” meaning “branch,” and “natsar,” meaning “to watch.” So, Believers in Yahusha can be called both branches and watchmen for this reason, also keeping in mind that Yahusha said, “I am the vine, you are the branches” (Yahuchanon 15:5).
The FACT is that the original followers of Yahusha were NOT known as “Christians,” but, instead were known as the “Natsarim” (the plural of Natsari). And you will notice the “sect of the Nazarenes” written in your translations at Acts 24:5.
As far as the “J” in Jehovah, it was unknown in any alphabet until the 14th century. And the root word “hovah” or “avah” in Hebrew means “wicked or perverse.” Even if you took the letter “J” off and added a “Y” to be “Yehovah,” it still would not be the letters contained in the Father’s true Name. Yahuah Elohim is intertwined in all of His creation, and the “El” of Elohim is also in the name of messengers, prophets, apostles and others. A-men (pronounced: aw-mane)
The Son’s Name is spelled “YHWSHA” or “YHUSHA,” and the Hebrew letters are Yod, Hey, Uau, Shin, Ayin (יהושע), and is pronounced YAH-OO-SHA. Yahusha means “Yah is Salvation” or “Yahuah Saves,” and is taken from the root word “Yasha,” meaning salvation. He was sent as a Savior for the world, “And there is no deliverance in anyone else, for there is no Name under the heavens given among men by which we need to be saved.” [Acts 4:12]
And one final note to all those Christians who CHOOSE to “revere” — but NOT to “fear” and “dread” Elohim — and to those who spread falsehoods about the Jewish Savior coming before the revealing of the anti-messiah: Your falsehoods will fail, and here is your future:
2 Corinthians 6:17 “Therefore, Come out from among them and be separate, says , and do not touch what is unclean and I shall receive you. And I shall be a Father to you and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says the Almighty.”
