Easter is Not the Worship of God in Spirit and in Truth

Easter is Marked by Corrupt Fruit: Full Moon and Human Sacrifice

One of the purposes of this site is to expose Satan's snares, especially those that he is directing towards the saints of God—the called out ones. Satan always marks his work with evil fruit, the appearance of evil, occult symbolism, occult dates, and a myriad of ways that defy the authority of the Word of God.

Jesus warned, 

"Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs or thistles?" Matthew 7:16  

The Lord Jesus Christ explained that the tree is corrupt if it bears corrupt fruit. The context of this verse zeroes in on false prophets—Satan's workers. However, this principle also applies to the fruits of false religious practices. False religious practices have corrupt fruit. God's people must carefully examine the practices the world and the church run after and prove their acceptability to God. (See Eph. 5:10)

Keeping the principle of "knowing them by their fruits" in mind, let us briefly examine Easter. I do not want to repeat the insights other believers have shared in exposing the origins and the most commonly known occult markings on the Easter celebration. Check out some websites where this information is readily available to those who are willing to prove what is acceptable unto the Lord.

The Bible gives no indication that believers are to commemorate our Lord's resurrection (or birth) with special worship. Strangely, it is the world and "nominal" Christians who love to celebrate Easter, even while they despise the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ -- the one they are supposedly worshiping.

  • Since people who do not love the Lord Jesus Christ are offering up worship, to whom is their worship being directed?  Another Jesus.  

  • Since they are not worshipping in spirit and in truth, then what kind of spirit is receiving this worship? Another spirit.

This kind of worship is fleshly, which is devilish. This is the kind of worship offered all over the world by people who worship God their way instead of God's way.

Devilish worship is any worship that is not carried out in spirit and in truth. This kind of worship is offered by the "children of disobedience" by the spirit that now works in them which is the prince of the power of the air:

"Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience."-Eph. 2:2

Christians also engage in this kind of worship if they are double-minded in regard to their worship. If believers are not worshipping God in spirit and in truth, then the Bible says they are partaking of the table of devils:

"Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils."-1 Cor. 10:21 

Only true Christians are capable of worshiping God in truth. Unbelievers, who are spiritually dead in their trespasses and sins, do not have the ability to worship God in spirit and in truth and cannot partake of the Lord's table.

On the other hand, followers of Jesus Christ have the ability to partake of either the Lord's table or the table of devils. They cannot partake of both at the same time. One is mutually exclusive of the other. If we look at the context of 1 Cor. 10:20-23 we can see what happens in regard to believers partaking of the "table of devils":

"But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to the devil, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?"-1 Cor. 10:20, 22 

An unbeliever's worship is to the devil by default, even if his worship appears to be directed toward the Lord Jesus Christ. Since he is not born of the Holy Spirit and thus cannot worship God in spirit and in truth, his worship is at the table of devils in the sight of God whether he realizes this or not. Believers can also fellowship with devils in their worship if they do not confine their worship of God to biblical standards: in spirit and in truth:

 "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth"-John. 4:24  

If a Christian is worshipping who he presumes to be God, but is not worshipping in spirit and truth, he is unwittingly fellowshipping with devils. The entire tenth chapter of 1 Corinthians is about believers committing idolatry and the consequences of doing so.

Paul likened idolatry to the sin of tempting Christ! He explained that God's people must flee from idolatry:

Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry. 1 Cor. 10:14

God is pleased when his people obey him and flee from idolatry, but the religious-but-worldly relatives of the Christian who flees from idolatry will not be pleased. Remember that persecutions for living godly in Christ Jesus will be a faint memory when we hear the words, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant."

 

Easter: A "Christian" Celebration Based Upon the Full Moon

Is celebrating Easter worshipping God in spirit and in truth? Well, let us look at the day that is chosen to celebrate what was and still is a fertility rite. Easter is not celebrated on a fixed date each year. The reason the date fluctuates is because the date for the celebration of Easter is based upon the full moon. I learned about this several years ago by consulting my Webster's Universal Unabridged Dictionary. 

Easter-[a paschal feast, originally a pagan festival in honor of the Goddess of Spring, Eastre, held in April.]
1. An annual Christian festival in commemoration of the resurrection of Jesus, held on the first Sunday after the date of the full moon that occurs on or after March 21.
2. The Sunday on which Easter is held: often called Easter Sunday.

March 21st (or 22nd)  is the Vernal (Spring) Equinox and is also a Satanic high day. The date of this "Christian" celebration is held on the first Sunday after the date of the full moon that occurs on or after March 21! The way the yearly Easter date is calculated definitely marks it as a pagan holiday. It is not possible for Christians to celebrate the actual anniversary of Jesus Christ's resurrection if the date of that celebration differs from year to year.

 

Destroy the Works of the Devil Through Prayer

Human sacrifices are performed throughout the Easter holidays. These satanic ritual killings begin on "Good Friday" at 12:01 a.m. and continue through Easter Sunday. It is God's will that we pray and ask him to intervene and rescue from death those who have been prepared for ritual murder at this time. Pray that Satan would be thwarted from receiving the sacrifices that he desires and that lives would be saved to the honor and glory of God.

Human sacrifice blasphemes God and intensely glorifies Satan. God's people must not participate in Easter in the manner of a celebration because it is Satan's holiday marked by the full moon and human sacrifice! Satan's followers covet the cooperation of devils which enable them to carry out Satan's purposes in this world. To acquire this power they must shed and consume human blood in ceremonial killings. Satan requires the execution of these diabolical practices throughout the world.

God is calling his called-out ones to prevail in prayer against the gates of hell during this time. Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil. As his followers, we must follow him and do the same. We must worship in spirit and in truth during Easter week by interceding for those held in bondage. God has provided a way of escape for people slated for sacrifice in the past and he will continue to provide a way of escape if we will pray. 

Some of you might say,

"I don't care what you say. I'm going to the church play; I will enjoy my Easter feast, and I will partake of the spiritual aspects of "Resurrection Sunday" anyway. I have nothing to do with what Satan's workers are involved in and I reject the world's secular rituals of egg hunting and chocolate bunnies and marshmallow chicks. My celebration is a Christian one. I'm going to enjoy myself and celebrate Christ's resurrection. There's nothing wrong with that!  My family has always done this; it's a tradition!"

Gary and I do understand your feelings because we celebrated Easter for many years before we realized that we were taking man's tradition and trying to put God's Spirit and truth into it. We had to let go of even treasured family holidays in order to put the Lord Jesus Christ first.

Jesus rebuked the Pharisees for elevating tradition over God's Word: 

"Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?" Matt. 15:3

Those who celebrate Easter transgress the commandments of God because The Bible does not direct believers to celebrate the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ (on a day based on the full moon no less!) nor does God's word condone paganism in Christian garb. The Holy Bible tells us to remember Jesus' death by partaking of the Lord's Supper, not his resurrection.

Let us look at the verse that Christians like to use as an excuse to partake of the table of devils by observing the holidays the world runs after: 

"Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ."  Col. 2:16, 17 

You might be thinking: "Ah hah! See? Nobody may judge a Christian in respect to a holy day! It is true that many who name the name of Jesus Christ are not aware that Easter (Ishtar) is not really a holy day unto the Lord Jesus Christ. Rather, it is Satan's holy day. Maybe they don't know that Easter is a time of human sacrifice, but you and I  know, and Jesus taught that God holds us accountable for what we know: 

"But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more." Luke 12:48

You may protest,

"But I have nothing to do with human sacrifice! It is not my fault that Satan's followers do such vile things on Easter Sunday! Easter has an entirely different meaning to me. Easter is a holy time in my eyes; I worship the Lord Jesus Christ and honor him only on this day!"

Please soberly ponder these words. Worshiping God is not about you. It is about God. Do you believe the Lord Jesus Christ is receiving your worship just because you are enjoying yourself and assume he is too? God's ways are not our ways. The Lord Jesus Christ is not pleased with those who call themselves by his name and yet insist on adhering to religious tradition over and above his word.

Easter is a pagan holiday that is based on the full moon, the fertility goddess, and human sacrifice. Perhaps you did not know that before. But now that you do know, how can you in good conscience ignore these things and continue to associate Easter with the worship of the God of the Bible? Jesus Christ is not honored while He watches the worldwide, simultaneous sacrifices of thousands upon thousands of people while his church does nothing to counter these atrocities! 

I know it is unpleasant to think of such things. The terrible murders that occur at this time are awful to contemplate. Who wants to think about human sacrifice happening at Easter time? Satan hopes that Christians do not allow themselves to take these matters to heart and regard them the way God does. He does not want any intercession going on to oppose his doings on Easter weekend. God's word tells us this is exactly what we must do:

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Ephesians 6:13

Jesus Christ is calling his true worshippers to stand against Satan's wicked devices in the evil day. We must bear his burden and intercede to bring about the rescue and escape of men and women, boys, girls, and infants who are being prepared for ritual slayings on Easter and other satanic high days. Jesus Christ came to destroy the works of darkness. May his people co-labor with him and do the same by praying against human sacrifice while the world engages in the Easter celebration.

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. John 4:23, 24
