The Chronicles of NCCI

Psalms 19:7  The law of Yahweh is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of Yahweh is sure, making wise the simple.


Easter holiday, like King Herod is and was PAGAN

EASTER IS NOT THE SAME AS PASSOVER!  The Easter holiday is the honor of a ancient pagan fertility goddess.  This pagan goddess was renamed over and over throughout the centuries.  “Easter” is just her newest name.

 King Herod, was a pagan:  He honored the celebration of pagan Easter, NOT the Holy Days of Passover and Unleavened Bread!

  1. Herod was not a Jew, he was an Edomite placed as king by the Roman Caesar to rule over the Jews [Hebrew Israelites] of the Messiah’s time.
  2. Herod, as reigning king of  the Jews, killed many Jews and was infamous for at one time ordering the killing of  all of the male babies of the Jews in an attempt to kill the  True King of the Jews, Yahshua the Messiah.
  3. Herod built many pagan temples to many different pagan gods.
  4. Herod built 3 pagan temples to honor a man, Caesar Augustus as a god.
  5. Herod was faithful to the Greek/Roman religions and to their pantheon of false gods and goddesses.
  6. After He rebuilt the Temple for the Jews. Herod had a huge pagan golden Roman Eagle statue placed at entrance of the temples’s main gate, greatly angering the Jews. (showing his true devotion to pagan Greco-Roman gods)

Watch the movie “The Eagle”, it does a good job of showing the extent to which the Romans worshipped the idol of the eagle.

Easter is Pagan, not Biblically Supported!

Acts 12:1—4 

“Now about that time Herod the king . . .killed James . . .  he proceeded . . .to take Peter also… (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)  And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison . . . intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.”

Easter is one holiday that many people believe is Biblically supported. This is because the term, “Easter” actually appears in the Bible.  What they don’t understand is that, while the word is in the Bible, its celebration is an abomination to the Most High God, YHWH.

The pagan fertility (solar) festival of Easter (Eostre) is celebrated around the same time as the Most High appointed holy days of Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread in Lev. 23:5-6. This scripture tells us that Passover takes place, then the following day Unleavened Bread begins.

The Biblical verses of Acts 12 were speaking of two different celebrations:  one for the Most High’s people and one for the pagans. This is why the two celebrations are mentioned separately.  So, Passover had already taken place, and he was still awaiting Easter!

The Seven Days of the Feast of Unleavened Bread: 

 Leviticus 23:6-8 “And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto YHWH: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread.   In the first day ye shall have an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.  But ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto YHWH seven days: in the seventh day is an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.”

The Feast of Unleavened Bread was instituted by YHWH in Exodus 12 as the Children of Israel were about to be delivered from bondage in Egypt. YHWH instructed to keep this feast as a memorial.  In the New Testament, leaven is likened to sin.  In Matthew 16, Yahshua warned the disciples of the leaven of the doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees.  In Corinthians 5:6, Paul asked “Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?”   He further admonished us to “purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened”.  During the Feast of Unleavened Bread, we are to purge ourselves, not just from physical leavening, but from the spiritual leavening that is sin.

 What is leavening?

Leavening is what causes foods like breads, cakes, and cookies to rise or increase in volume.  Leavening can be achieved using biological agents (i.e. yeast) or chemical agents (i.e. bicarbonates).

During this feast, we must not eat nor have any leaven found in our homes.  In preparing for this 1st set of feast days, we must clean our homes of any form of leaven.

READ ALL LABELS!!!

Clean your area from leaven.  Be cautious of those snacks that might have leaven in them.

 What foods should I be aware of when preparing for the Feast of Unleavened Bread?

Foods that commonly contain leavening ingredients such as cakes, cookies, pies, breads, and pastries are readily identifiable; however, may other food items such as seasoning mixes and canned goods may also contain leavening ingredients.  Check your flour, corn meal and other such items to be sure that they are not the self-rising variety.  Read labels carefully for leavening ingredients.  When in doubt, err on the side of caution and throw it out!

What ingredients are considered leavening agents?

There are many different leavening agents. The following are some of the most common:

Baking Powder Ammonium Bicarbonate (a.k.a. Bakers Ammonia)
Sodium Bicarbonate (a.k.a. Baking Soda) Potassium Bitartrate (a.k.a. Cream of Tartar)
Calcium Bicarbonate Potassium Bicarbonate
Yeast Monocalcium Phosphate
