The word Easter is only mentioned once in the entire bible, and then it was referring to PASSOVER. Yes! PASSOVER that is mentioned in scripture seventy six times…… it is written the word will offend some and there are many who may not believe the holiday easter has nothing to do with Christ, but this does not change the truth of Gods word.
No matter how many eggs are colored and decorated or the telling of fun bunny stories to your children the worlds easter still remains a tradition of men which makes void the true word of God. As our Lord encountered in His day the traditions of men which was held in such high regard, it completely took preeminence over the keeping of Gods commandment’s even to this day! Sadly people will fight to this day to keep the traditions of their forefathers who our Lord plainly told so many generations ago that their heart’s are far from Him! (Mark 7:1-9) Then came together unto him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, which came from Jerusalem. And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found fault. For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders. And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots, brasen vessels, and of tables. Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands? He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
Passover was a judgment God executed against Egypt and all the firstborn males were to be smited, death was to passover any house that had blood on the two side post’s and the upper door post. God took this passover very seriously just as He expects us to take the passover lamb seriously today who is our Lord Jesus Christ who was without blemish and for this purpose was crucified, and we are told this memorial was to be kept forever throughout all our generations! (Exodus 12:14). And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the Lord throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever. (Exodus 12:5-14).
So how can egg hunts and easter candy make up for what Jesus went through on the cross as He was sacrificed for to purge us from all sin, truth is it can’t! Jesus kept the passover and before He was to go to the cross He desired to eat passover with His disciples, and it was at the last supper He explained in detail the purpose of His life, not only for them but for all mankind! (Luke 22:1,9-20).
Let’s put Christ back where He deserves to be at this time of year! As our passover …… The Sacrificial Lamb God has chosen who was sent for our salvation and leave out the vain traditions our forefathers have previously taught, for although it may be fun with rabbit’s and candy it sadly does not give honor to God and what was done for us at the cross! May we purge out the old leaven from our life (1 Corinthians 5:7) Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us.

Many Christians are deceived into following Pagan Easter celebrations by leaders within the Christian community because “…many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed” 2 Peter 2:2.
Easter Sunrise Service
God revealed to the prophet Ezekiel the sins of His people in a vision.
Then He said to me, “Have you seen this, O son of man? Turn again, you will see greater abominations than these.” 1So He brought me into the inner court of the Lord’s house; and there, at the door of the temple of the Lord, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men with their backs toward the temple of the Lord and their faces toward the east, and they were worshiping the sun toward the east. And He said to me, “Have you seen this, O son of man? Is it a trivial thing to the house of Judah to commit the abominations which they commit here? For they have filled the land with violence; then they have returned to provoke Me to anger. Indeed they put the branch to their nose. Therefore I also will act in fury. My eye will not spare nor will I have pity; and though they cry in My ears with a loud voice, I will not hear. Ezekiel 8:15-18.NKJV
It is the identical thing millions are doing every Easter Sunday morning—the sunrise service—standing with their faces toward the east, as the sun is rising, in a service of worship which honors the sun god and his mythical idolatrous consort, goddess Easter. Yes, deceived into believing this is Christian, millions practice every Easter the identical form of the ancient sun worship of the sun god Baal!
SPOT ON!!!!! Many generations have come and gone, yet man refuses to accept the truth of the word. Christmas also is another pagan sun god worship event which the world cannot grasp as idolatry. Your comment is much appreciated. Have a Blessed Day.
