The July 4th celebration is not patriotic, it is pagan. It honors and celebrates the goddess of America, goddess Liberty. The celebration of the 4th of July features the offering of meat sacrifices of abominable meats from the swine burnt over a open fire ( we call it a BBQ ) and the burning of incense in the form of fireworks to the honor of this pagan goddess.
The Statue of Liberty at the base has this inscription: “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
This statue’s full name is goddess Liberty Enlightening the World. The inscription states”give me your tired, your poor”, not give us as in the nation of America, but give me as in the goddess!
Even a few of the Official Seals and Flags of individual states showcase America’s goddesses! The New York state flag features goddesses Liberty and Justice! The New Jersey state flag features goddesses Liberty and Ceres (Prosperity)!
December 25th is NOT the birthday of the Messiah Yahshua. December 25th is most closely connected to the time frame of the winter solstice, Saturn(Saturnalia), and Mithraism — not the history documented in the Bible. Follow the Hebrew calendar to understand.
So then, if this goddess, LIBERTY, is promoted, celebrated, and honored, when it is said “God Bless America”, which god is really meant?
The God of the Bible, author of the ten commandments, Creator of all,
OR America’s celebrated pagan deity, Liberty?
Mark 7:9 “And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.”
Patrick’s Day is just another international opportunity to promote continued paganism hidden behind partying, food, and symbolism. The Christian version of this holiday’s origins involves the celebration of the actions of a missionary called Patrick (saint?). He was said to introduce the pagan people of Ireland to Christian concepts, particularly the Trinity worship. The shamrock was already a Celtic Irish symbol representing – rebirth (green), fertility, & good luck — so his connecting this symbol to another philosophy was an example of paganism that once again begat more paganism and the shamrock took on its connection to a three person god…as it is today, called the Trinity.
The Trinity doctrine ancient being found throughout the centuries, Egyptian trinity, Hindu trinity, Chinese trinity, Roman trinity, all the way down to Christian trinity. This 3-person god doctrine is thoroughly NOT Biblical, start with Commandment number one, No other gods! http://ustream.tv/channel/chronicles-of-ncci
What is Valentine’s Day really about? To put it simply, Valentine’s Day is Vile. This pagan holiday is part of the over month long “Carnival” festival that ends with the infamously lewd Mardi Gras. Valentine’s Day is all about fertility rites and the worship and offering of gifts to the mythological god(s) Lupercus/Faunus/Pan (depending on the ruling empire – Rome/Greece/etc).
Considering the focus on the exhibition of “sexual freedom” that this holiday and the connected Mardi Gras/Carnival celebration holds and Valentines’s Day’s heavy promotion towards school-aged children, it makes this holiday even more lewd.
The knowledge of the origins of these pagan practices reminds us of the Law, beginning with Commandment number One: Have No other gods.
Love is not Valentines, love is keeping God’s Law.
Romans 13:10 “…therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.”
Psalms 14:4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.
