Easter Lays An Egg

It is the CHURCH That Needs a Resurrection

One of the reasons we left our church was the pagan aspects of a"Christian" holiday encased in the trappings of pagan fertility rites and sun worship.

 We actually have no scripture to observe the annual fulfillment of the Passover or carry on the paganized version of the event. 
We do not have a Hebrew calendar nor were we told to have one in the New Testament.  Someday the Lord will fix our paganized calendar, but until then, many of us will simply do as Paul wrote to the church: "One man esteems one day above another: another esteems every day alike".

For us, the quote from Christ "It is finished." means no more bunnies, eggs, sunrise services, easter baskets, chocolate eggs, egg-hunts, or "Happy Easter" greetings. (“Easter” is the Romanized form of the Babylonian pagan goddess “Ishtar”).

Furthermore, we do not observe a "Good Friday" crucifixtion followed by THREE DAYS and THREE NIGHTS in the earth, only to come out of the grave 1.5 days later on Sunday.
Have you ever thought of that?
Matthew 12:40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's bellyso shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
-hmm, that is what Jesus said. 

Have you ever counted the days?
 From Friday 3pm +24, 'till Saturday 3pm = 1 day.
+ to Sunday  3pm= 2 days,
+ to Monday 3pm = 3days.
  If He went into the grave around 6 or 7 the 3 days creep toward Tuesday morn. So we do a little 3rd grade math and find the three days that began late on Friday now puts the women at the empty tomb early on Tuesday!

If Jesus was crucified Friday and a day was 24 hours like it has been for a long time, then for Jesus to be in the earth "3 days and 3 nights", either He resurrected on Monday night late, early Tuesday,  or the church has it way wrong again.
But maybe He was crucified on WEDNESDAY. Then He can resurrect by the first day of the week, which is our Sunday, like the Bible says in Mark 16:9 Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week.

A risen Christ? YES!
A correct calendar date for it? Maybe.
What the scripture says about it? ABSOLUTELY!
But the bunnies, eggs, sunrise worship, and "FUN" practices that have been passed down from Babel? -NOT!

Isn't it odd there is no mention in the Book of Acts or the epistles of Christians observing a holiday called "Easter"?
Oh yes, for a time the Jewish disciples observed Passover but that observance was not mentioned as a practice for the gentile Christians to observe.  The Jewish observance of the Passover bore zero resemblance to the pagans around them who worshipped Ishtar, Queen of Heaven, and her son, Tammuz, the resurrected false son of God.
Hot "T" Buns anyone? 
|The "t" stands for "Tammuz"  Ezekiel 8:14 Then he brought me to the door of the gate of Jehovah's house which was toward the north; and behold, there sat the women weeping forTammuz. 
Yes, right there in front of God's Temple, a celebration for Mr. T.

I am not trying to debate or change anyone's observance one way or the other, but by the time we walked out of church, we were fed up with the worldliness of our holidays and the lack of real evidence in the church around us of the resurrection. 

Today it is the church around us that needs resurrection more than the observance of the historical commemoration-celebration of what Christ did 2,000 years ago.

Be assured, the holiday called "Easter" you grew up with is not the one we read of in scripture. 
 And finally, this link has a rundown of where "Easter" actually came from, right down to the "cross my heart" with a "T" for Tammuz from good 'ol Babylon..

Now, about that "sun rise" service:
ezek. 8:
5 Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? thou shalt again see yet greater abominations than these.
16 And he brought me into the inner court of the Lord’s house; and behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they were worshipping the sun toward the east.
17 Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have turned again to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose.

"Now we go to the tomb on the first day of the week, the resurrection morning the women came at early dawn but Jesus had already risen.  No mention of the women facing to the east and paying homage to the Sun as it rose in the eastern sky, no mention of bringing colored eggs, no rabbits were brought to sacrifice to the goddess of fertility.

  Of course, the women coming to the tomb of Jesus had nothing to do with the present day celebration of Easter or Easter Sunrise Service.  The reason was that as a festive celebration to observe the resurrection of Christ, the event was unknown! 

Those who are afraid of the truth should read no further!  For the truth is that Easter is pagan!"
