Easter Is Also A Pagan Holiday That Was Celebrated Long Before Jesus Was Born

Do you know what the word "Easter" means?

That is something I always wondered about growing up.

It was not until I started doing some research that I began to learn the truth.

Our old reference books actually told us the truth about these things......

The Britannica Encyclopedia (1934) stated:

"EASTER (es’ter). Ostara, or Eastre, was the goddess of Spring in the religion of the ancient Angles and Saxons. Every April a festival was celebrated in her honor. With the beginnings of Christianity, the old gods were put aside. From then on the festival was celebrated in honor of the resurrection of Christ, but was still known as Easter after the old goddess."

So why do we celebrate "Easter"?

Have you ever heard of "Ishtar" or "Ashtoreth"? - Those are ancient names of the same pagan fertility goddess.

Easter "eggs" and bunny rabbits are pagan fertility symbols that celebrate this pagan fertility goddess, and they have been for centuries and centuries.

Jesus did not die on "Easter".

Do you want to know when Jesus died?

He died during the Passover season.

So why do Christians not celebrate the holiday of Passover?

Passover perfectly foreshadowed the sacrifice of Jesus the Messiah.

Passover was prophetically fulfilled by Jesus the Messiah.

The Last Supper was actually a Passover meal (just look it up in the Scriptures).

During the Last Supper Jesus said to do this meal in memory of Him.

And did you know that we will celebrate the Passover during the 1000 year reign of Christ (see Ezekiel 45-46)?

Did you know that "Easter" was celebrated by ancient civilizations such as the Assyrians, the Phoenicians, and the Philistines? Did you know that ritual pagan sex acts were involved with the celebration of "Easter"?

So why have we forsaken a holiday which predicted the sacrifice of Jesus, which is full of symbolism about Jesus, which is during the precise time when Jesus died and rose again and which God tells us in the Scriptures to remember?

Why have we instead been celebrating a pagan fertility festival that is named after a pagan fertility goddess and is filled with pagan symbols and traditions?
