In “We’ve Created a Monster”, I began to explain the concept of “syncretism” as it pertains to Babylon. That blog was about the financial aspect of the end-time Babylon. Today, I want to talk about the religious side.
Babylon represents a state of confusion. In the religious sense, this confusion has been made manifest through the process of syncretism, or a blending of false religion into the true religion. As it stands today, the Christian world is in a large state of confusion. The highest days on the western calendar are Sunday, Christmas, Easter, and Halloween. All three of these holidays come from false religions of days gone by. These are the chief topics on this website, incidentally.
In brief, Sunday has no basis for weekly observance at all. It is merely the first day of the week. The Sabbath is the seventh day of the week and that’s the only day to keep holy on a weekly basis. The early followers of Yeshua (Jesus) observed Sabbath all the way until the middle of the 4th century where it became illegal to do so. Sunday was kept by the sun-worshiping religions of antiquity and it traces its roots all the way back to the tower of Babel. Christmas was (is) actually the birthday of a false god called Mithra.
The celebrations around Christmas of burning a Yule log, mistletoe, gift giving, and it’s timing all come from a pagan practice called the Saturnalia. Dragging a tree into your house and decorating it with silver is even specifically forbidden in scripture:
Thus says the LORD, “Do not learn the way of the nations, And do not be terrified by the signs of the heavens Although the nations are terrified by them; For the customs of the peoples are delusion; Because it is wood cut from the forest, The work of the hands of a craftsman with a cutting tool. “They decorate it with silver and with gold; They fasten it with nails and with hammers So that it will not totter. Jer 10: 2-4
What is really frustrating is the clear prohibition of Christmas practices above and that our brethren in the mainstream churches continue the practice.
Easter is an abomination. Not only is it a false day to celebrate the victory Messiah had over the grave, but it is celebrated primarily by consuming unclean food. Can you imagine honoring your earthly parents once a year by getting together and doing exactly what they told you not to do? Hunting eggs that were supposed to come from a bunny on the day a pagan fertility goddess named Diana or Astarte is honored is really a strange way to honor the true God who commands us not to have any other gods in His presence.
Halloween, above all these things, takes the cake, though. The Christians don’t even pretend this day is anything other than what it really is; the honoring of Satan and his realm. The history of this day is nothing but evil, as well as the traditions surrounding it. Yet the Christians send their kids out dressed like ghouls, just like in the pagan days of old. Amazing.
After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illumined with his glory. And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird. “For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality.” I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues; for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Rev 18:1-5
What does it mean to come out of her in this context? Knock it off! The truth about Sunday, Christmas, Easter, and Halloween is plain. Now that our days resemble the days that Daniel speaks of where knowledge will increase, where is the excuse? A simple internet search will turn up hundreds of sites with sourced material showing the truth about these pagan days. The History Channel has entire video series chronicling these things. Stop dressing up like demons! Stop decorating trees and climbing on your house in the dead of winter to hang lights! Stop dying eggs and hunting them while consuming unclean food! Start observing the true weekly day of worship! Come out of her, people!
