Do You Really Know What Fat Tuesday Is????
Psalms 81:3 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed,
on our solemn feast day.
Colossians 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or
of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

Let’s be thankful to have been blessed with the scales being removed from our eyes to see clearly …. As the world blindly celebrates pagan mythology and thoroughly breaks Yah’s first and second commandments . . .
Exodus 20:2-6 I am the LORD thy God . . .
The last day of this month (Oct. 31) is set aside to honor several pagan gods and goddesses, including Feralia, Roman “god of the dead,” and Pomona, who was the Roman divinity of Fruit Trees. She was also known as the “Apple-Mother” – the dispenser of the “apples of eternal life.” Every Roman banquet ended with apples, as an invocation of Pomona’s good will. Traces of the worship of this pagan goddess can be found today rooted in the practice of “bobbing for apples” on Halloween.
As with the holidays of Christmas and Easter, we can trace the roots of Halloween far back into the pagan past. The Encyclopedia of Religion says, “Halloween, or All hallows Eve, is a festival celebrated on 31 October, the evening prior to the Christian Feast of All Saints Day (Nov. 1, and All Souls Day (Nov. 2). Halloween is the name for the eve of Samhain (Summer’s End), a celebration marking the beginning of winter as well as the first day of the Celtic New Year among the peoples of the British Isles (Britons, Irish, Scots and Welsh). It was also known as the Celtic Festival of the Dead.” (1987, p. 176, “Halloween”)
On this holiday, the souls of the dead were supposed to revisit their homes. and hence it was said that ghosts, witches, goblins, black cats, bats, fairies, and demons of all kinds roamed about seeking whom they could control. As a result, these people put on grotesque masks and animal skins and offered sacrifices in the bonfires to ward off the evil. They also carved eerie images out of pumpkins and placed lighted candles inside to scare them. “It was the only day on which the help of the devil was invoked for such purposes.” (Encyclopedia Britannica, 15th ed. Micropaedia, Vol. IV. P. 862, “Halloween”). Church leaders adopted this ancient celebration to serve their own purposes. “The Samhain remained a popular festival among the Celtic people throughout the “christianization” of Great Britain.” (The Encyclopedia of Religion, p. 177, “Halloween.”) Still today, its festival is alive and well here in America! If you don’t believe me, then ask yourself why do people dress up in grotesque images, make “Jack-O-Lanterns,” and decorate their homes and churches with symbols of the dead such as skeletons, ghosts, witches and black cats on the evening of October 31? How many times have you yelled “Trick or Treat,” gone bobbing for apples, or went on hay rides to a place where huge bonfires were built? This night is said to be one of Lucifer’s great “High Days” . So — if you want to continue celebrating Halloween — do so at the risk of your own eternal life in the Lake of Fire!
The Feast of Tabernacles ( Feast of Booths)
“34 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD.
35 On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.
36 Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein.
37 These are the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD, a burnt offering, and a meat offering, a sacrifice, and drink offerings, every thing upon his day:
38 Beside the sabbaths of the LORD, and beside your gifts, and beside all your vows, and beside all your freewill offerings, which ye give unto the LORD.
39 Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the LORD seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath.
40 And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God seven days.
41 And ye shall keep it a feast unto the LORD seven days in the year. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month.
42 Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths:
43 That your generations may know that I made the children of Israel to dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
44 And Moses declared unto the children of Israel the feasts of the LORD.”
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
27 Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a DAY OF ATONEMENT: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
28 And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God.
29 For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people.
30 And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people.
31 Ye shall do no manner of work: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
While Atlanta, GA’s Millennium Gate at Atlantic Station in Midtown promotes itself as a symbol of peace. It most certainly is not. It is based on the Arch of Titus in Rome which celebrates slaughter!!!
Then saith Yahshua unto him, Get thee hence, Satan:
for it is written,
Thou shalt worship Yahweh thy God,
and him only shalt thou serve.
