Character Purity aims to edify the populace about the need for Character Perfection, and Victory over Sin, before the imminent return of Yeshua (Matthew 5:48)

Easter Origin

Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us

1Cor. 5:7 KJV.



As people of God, we need to recognize that Christ is our “Passover Lamb”: and, although it was a normal custom that crucified individuals’ legs were broken, the legs of Christ were not broken:

Pagan Easter

Easter was an ancient pagan festival that was adopted by the Roman church and given a Christian veneer. It bears a Chaldean origin on its very forehead. Easter is nothing else but Ashtarte, one of the titles of Beltis, the Queen of Heaven. The Easter “buns” were used in the worship of the queen of heaven, the goddess of Easter. As early as the days of Cecrops, the founder of Athens, fifteen hundred years before the Christian era. The prophet Jeremiah takes notice of this offering when he says,

“The children gather wood, the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough to make cakes to the Queen of heaven.” ( Jer. 7:18 )

The hot cross buns are no longer offered, but eaten, on the festival of Astarte.

The origin of the Easter egg, correlating with the ancient Druids manifested an egg as a sacred emblem of their order. In ancient times eggs were used in religious rituals throughout Egypt and Greece. Eggs were hung for mystic purposes in temples. These sacred eggs can be traced to the banks of the Euphrates. Classic poetry contained fables of the mystique of Babylon. Thus, its tale was told by Hyginus, an Egyptian, connecting to the library in Rome.

The question now is: should a true believer in the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Paul celebrate Easter?

Exodus 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me[.]

Exodus 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:

Exodus 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me[.]

Colossians 3:6 For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:

Colossians 3:15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Colossians 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

Let’s also examine scriptures such as 1 Corinthians 6:14-17 ,7:1; 2 Corinthians 10:18-22:

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Behold Israel after the flesh: are not they which eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar? What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing? But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.

Shalom sister Sabbay!

I have been trying to find out the definition of the “high day” mentioned in John 19:31. I have spoken to Messianic Jews (Hebrews), who have told me that the annual Sabbaths are called high days, and that it has nothing to do with the weekly Sabbath. We know that Jesus/Yeshua was crucified on Passover, the 14th day of the first month, which has nothing to do with Easter. I’ve heard it said in the SDA church, that it was a high day because the an annual Sabbath fell on the weekly Sabbath.

The Bible clearly tells us that it was the preparation of the Passover. (John 19:14) There seems to be some error in the KJ translation, because the first day of Unleavened Bread begins on sundown of the 14th, after Yeshua was crucified. He therefore could not have asked His disciples to do anything on the first day of Unleavened Bread as Matthew 26:17 seems to imply. I would appreciate any light that you can shed on this matter.

May God continue to bless you dear sister, and cause His face to shine on you now and always! Shalom 🙂

Some believers who celebrate EASTER say’s they are doing that to remember the death of CHRIST. But my question is that did JESUS CHRIST our saviour ask us to celebrate his death day on easter? The answer is a big NO. CHRIST said by taken part in the LORD’S SUPPER, we remember him(Christ). 1corinthians 11:24-25. The apostle Paul also said by taking part in the LORD’S SUPPER , we proclaim the death of JESUS CHRIST. 1 corinthians 11:26. A believer can also proclaim the death of JESUS CHRIST through BAPTISM.
