His Word is Truth

Unadulterated Biblical Truth

13) Modern "holidays"  and  Traditions of  Men

Jeremiah 10:2 "Thus says YHWH, learn not the way of the heathen"

Deuteronomy 12:29 "When YHWH your Elohim cuts off before you the nations whom you go in to dispossess, and you dispossess them and dwell in their land, take care that you be not ensnared to follow them, after they have been destroyed before you, and that you do not inquire about their elohim, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their elohim?—that I also may do the same'.
You shall not do so to YHWH your Elohim"

Amos 5:21 "I have hated, I have despised your festivals, and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies"



This page is about the days and times that the world is observing as special "holidays", and the customs and traditions they're keeping along with them.
Realizing the things shared here can also help someone wake up to the truth, and also see better how the world and society REALLY is around them.

Please understand the importance, and start looking for the concealed truths behind the modern traditions of the world that the world is wanting you to observe, instead of blindly accepting them and performing them without question.

If the world is telling you to do something and that it's okay to do, you should pause and question it, and try to figure out why it wants you to do something.
We should know that the world is of the evil ones and the satan, so if the world is okay with something then that likely means the satan approves of you doing it, and may desire you to do it.
 We should know by now to not blindly trust the world.

The world has been tricked into keeping a multitude of heathen traditions, customs, and laws.
 The bulk of modern "holidays" are from the ways and religions of the heathen!
 People tend to have a hard time accepting this at 1st and will instantly deny it without any sort of investigation, assuming that they know for sure what they're talking about because everyone else does them and they may have Christian themes poorly attached to them so in their mind that proves that they're good Biblical traditions.

We've been plainly taught against these typical habits of society in the scriptures, such as to not be blind and obey men and traditions over YHWH, and to not mix up the truth with tradition and lie, but the people are unknowingly and carelessly appearing just like the heathen of the past, and ignoring his actual will for them.

Many people are holding onto some of these heathen traditions and laws as if they're holy to YHWH, when they're not, and do not even come from YHWH, but are inventions of men and devils.

What makes this issue tragic and an even greater abomination is the fact that the world is honoring the customs and commandments of heathen religions, yet despising and casting away the laws and festivals of YHWH that he gave to us!

Modern people are wickedly telling the father how they will worship him, and how they will not worship him.
 They're wanting to be accepted by him for doing what they want to do, in other words they're trying to climb over the fence to get to Elohim instead of going through the gate, and even pridefully telling him to accept them.

When those around me may realize that I am not taking any part in one of the modern "holidays" of the world, it's common for them to falsely assume that it means I am not a Christian, and that I am likely an unrighteous person even!
 When in reality, it should be the other way around!
It is because I am a Christian, is why I honor the Father's days and times, and want nothing to do with lies and heathenism's customs.
 I am following the example the Yahushua the Messiah left, he did not honor lies and false traditions, but he kept his Father's ways and commandments.

If we follow what the Messiah told us, then we would keep YHWH's laws, and we would not keep heathenism!
 There are true and false Christians, the world has lied to the people and told them that "true Christians" celebrate things like Xmas. 

Some of the actual stories behind modern traditions that people love, can be appalling. What makes it worse is when you realize that you've kept these traditions for years without ever seriously asking yourself, why am I doing this and where did it come from?

There are many people in the world who are taught, and assume, that such traditions are actually from the Bible, but they're not.
 They're not from the Bible, and they're not of YHWH. They did not come from him.

Some modern traditions share slight similarities to the holy days of YHWH, but they're not the same, and the keeping of such false days testify of the hearts of people when those same people are ignoring the day of YHWH that is similar in meaning, but instead choosing to keep another day that they want to keep and honor.
(Such as "Thanksgiving" in the U.S. and not keeping Sukkot.)

So, to get started, it's time to ask yourself why are people keeping these traditions, and where have they come from?
 Why is the world teaching many days and traditions to observe, yet none of YHWH's days? Even teaching YHWH's days are bad, and the world's days are good?
 Should one not realize they're being tricked by the satan when the spirit of the world pushes you to dislike the people who are observing YHWH's holy days, and not keeping the traditions of men that have nothing to do with the Bible?

This is probably obvious to you, but let's get it out of the way.
 The word "holiday" literally means "holy day".

We have been led into keeping days and customs that are unclean and "holy" to heathen pagans.
 These traditions are not from YHWH or the Bible.

Most of the modern "holidays" have pagan origins, being purely from a false religion and then having some alterations to make them more socially acceptable for modern Christian societies.

Catholicism is largely to blame for taking pagan practices and poorly pasting Biblical themes onto them.

Many different denominations may bad-mouth Catholicism, but they're actually bad-mouthing their mother.
 The protestants who claim to be separated from their Catholic mother may rebel against some of her ways, but they've turned around and returned to her some, and keep many of Catholicism's doctrines and commandments, such as teaching the abolishment of the 7th day Sabbath of YHWH and the making holy of what they call "sunday", the keeping of trinity doctrines, and the keeping of pagan customs such as what is now called xmas.

Today people will tell you Xmas is a holy day about the birth of the Messiah and his birthday, but there is 1 major problem with that, the Xmas traditions have been kept for thousands of years even before the birth of the Messiah!
 Xmas was the birthday of heathen idols!
Dec 25th has nothing to do with the actual birth of the Messiah, but rather has to do with the Winter Solstice!
 In Pagan traditions Dec 25th is basically the birthday of the sun idols, or rather as they say, the "rebirth".
 The bringing in of evergreen trees during that time of year is also part of the customs of the heathen!

The wicked ones who have created and shaped these commandments for "modern" Christians to follow made sure that they would not be keeping any true holy day or festival at the time of a real one commanded by YHWH, so they did not want their days to fall on the biblical holy days.

So if you're following the world, you're separated from the path YHWH gave to us.
You must come out of it, and wake up. We've been tricked!

Today what you will see is people fighting over and wildly defending their traditions they love, all the while ignoring and dishonoring the special days given to us from YHWH to observe every year.

I'm not trying to tell you that you didn't really enjoy those times with your family and friends, and I am not trying to tell you that any good deeds that may have been done were not really good deeds just because they were done around these times, but I am just trying to tell you we have been tricked into keeping what YHWH told us not to do, and those good times and beautiful memories with family can be had even better with the real days and celebrations if people were to just keep them with the same love and excitement.

The pagan days are not responsible for those happy memories, it's the people, and the same people are able to be part of the true days.

Also, concerning the good deeds that may have been done around those false days, they need to be done in the proper name, in the name of YHWH, not in the name of pagan days, such as not in the name of xmas, or in the name of "satan claws"("santa").

Let us listen to the Father like his humble children, he has blessed us with the knowledge we need to purify ourselves and not be unclean.
Being clean and righteous brings blessings upon us, knowledge is a wonderful gift.

Do not be a wicked child and say to your father that you refuse and you're going to do what you want.
Your father knows better than you do.
Just as young disobedient children often think they know better than their parents yet are greatly blind to the full truth, so are we when we rebel against YHWH.

You may ask why so few people know about the origins and the dark sides of the traditions, and there are many reasons for this.

1st off, there are evils out there shaping the world to where it misleads others.

It is very difficult to even share the facts, modern people when they hear such things are utterly refusing to accept it and want to close their ears to the knowledge and evidence being shared concerning their traditions. They want to brush it off as quickly as possible so they can keep their tradition unhindered, and they do not go and teach others about the truth, but instead may even keep their traditions even more strongly.

The 1st time I personally tried to share the fact that a certain day has pagan roots and the traditions were from a pagan religion not the true Christianity, I was quickly told that I was wrong and was met with aggression.

The person snapped at me sharply, and would not take a moment to think about and consider what I was saying, and hear me out fully on what I could have shared.
They just wanted to treat me as if I was below them.

This person would not accept my words, but I happened to notice a dictionary nearby right after this, and it quickly came to me to look that day up to see what it would say.

This particular dictionary did not lie about the definition and origins and only state the modern world view on the word or what people wanted to hear, but it actually stated that it was a pagan festival with pagan origins, honoring a pagan idol, adopted by modern Christians as their own festival.

After this, the person did change their tone and ceased blurting out I was wrong.
(Over time, that person continued to learn more and stop honoring pagan traditions and returned to YHWH's Word. So don't give up when you're met with negativity, you may plant a seed that takes root and starts to grow later or over time.)

It only takes a small amount of research for yourself to realize that many of these days being kept are really pagan days that have been altered to look more acceptable in modern society.
You shouldn't waste time on doing this either, because over the years I've watched the internet censor such things and go back over and alter the saved information to where it looks like such things never existed.
(This happens with many things, not just the history of modern Christianity, for example such as internet resources telling us how the U.S. C I A created Al Qaeda, and then history being rewritten before our eyes to say Osama Bin Laden created Al Qaeda etc.., and now people who trust their tv would often think you're crazy if you told them the U.S. created it, and even Osama Bin Laden worked for the U.S..
That's another topic though, and I was just using it as an example of how people are actively working to silence and rewrite information so that the illusion of the world stays strong, and grows even more powerful.)

Like with most traditions of men, not many take a step back and ask themselves, why am I doing this, and where did it come from, and is this really right to do?
We can look at the pharisees to see how men will choose their traditions over the truth, and then realize the entire world is doing the same, and various cultures often have their own set of traditions they keep and honor over the truth, and even go against truth and righteousness for the sake of the man invented traditions.

People need to know these things so we are not doing something that
YHWH hates.
If you're going to continue doing these things, why hide the facts from your neighbor who doesn't want to do them if they're bad?
Or if you're going to continue doing these things, why hide the facts from small children and cause them to stumble when they wouldn't want to do such if they knew the truth?
Children want to be in the truth, and under the wings of YHWH, it gets harder for souls to come out of lies when they're raised up in the lies and then grow into a hard hearted adult.
Messiah has told us;

Mark 9:42 “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea"

Matthew 18:6 "But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea"

Luke 17:1 "And he said to his disciples, Temptations to sin are sure to come, but woe to the one through whom they come! It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were cast into the sea than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin"

YHWH has seen the wicked origins, he has watched these practices evolve over the years and become what they are today.
These traditions may morph a bit with time, but what is remaining the same is the heart and spirit of the people who keep these things.

One may say good things about their pagan traditions, and let on like keeping them is good being done, but a blind eye is turned to the fact that if they were really pure of heart, they would be in humble submission to YHWH, following what he has taught is right and wrong.
Just because you feel in your heart something is good, does not make it anywhere near good. Your heart will lead you astray like a maniacal enemy.
Be reborn, and have truth and knowledge written on your heart, and then good will come from it.
If the truth is written on your heart, your heart will be repelled by the things that are not of Elohim.

Due to the false teachings many modern people carry on thinking these "holidays" are godly and good, but the simple truth is they are not commanded in the Bible, are not from YHWH, and YHWH in the Bible actually says for us to not keep such things, and obviously tells us to keep his holy days forever.

We should admit our faults, acknowledge we've been tricked, and be ashamed over these things we've done instead of listening to the Father, not defending the bad things we've done for any reason.

Modern Christians for example do not keep any biblically commanded holy days or festivals.
They teach to not obey the commands of YHWH for those things, but then they turn around and teach to obey the commands of the pagans to keep their traditions, and they will defend them.

This is wickedness, and we're taught about such foolish behavior in the Bible, and are told woe to those who put darkness for light and light for darkness.
This is also wicked judgment.

Some are saying that those who do not obey the traditions are bad, this is very backwards.

YHWH has told us what is good and what is bad, so trying to add to his law and say people must obey your man-made traditions is setting yourself up as a false elohim and wicked judge, we're not the ones who decide what is right and wrong.

You may get called something like a joy killer for trying to even speak about these things, when in reality you're trying to bless them with better, clean, real joy and truth.
Their little traditions are not worth rejecting YHWH over.

Following the satan may give a false joy, that lasts but only a short while before you're taken away.

People will cling and fight for these pagan days and deep down for a lot of people, it is because of the memories they have, it's about people in their life, but if they actually softened their heart to follow wisdom, they would realize following righteousness has FAR more to offer for memories and people they love.
There is no comparison. Do not let your flesh lie to you.

Also, if you do not join the people of YHWH and keep his righteous ways, then your memories and experiences are in vain, they will be lost forever, along with all of the things you love!

If you love the fun, playful, and happy experiences with friends and family, then follow YHWH to be able to make them always!

We all should have made those past memories to the righteous holy days of YHWH, and there is no reason we can't, even if the larger majority is not participating with us currently, we have no excuse to continue ignoring the Father's word and honoring the words of men instead.

There is also a line that needs to be drawn, and I will discuss this later.
What I am saying is, for example, if a heathen keeps a plain rock inside their house for their false elohim, does that mean we can never bring a rock into our house?
The answer is of course no, we are not forbidden from bringing a simple rock into our house just because someone decided to turn it into a bad thing, but there is a line we need to draw for some things.

If a pagan creates some idol, and says we should worship them in a certain way with 20 different traditions on a certain date, and one of those traditions happened to be bringing a rock inside, then you can surely see there is a difference between you randomly bringing a rock inside for an unrelated reason, and you deciding to do those 20 different traditions on that certain day while even using that idols name and so on, basically, there is a clear difference between being innocent and keeping a tradition.

So, use right judgment with a righteous heart.
Don't obey the false idols rituals and commands, but obey YHWH's commandments and serve him only.

In multiple modern cases, the keeping of these pagan days are actually harming the faith of people.
 Also, these pagan days are helping given Christians a bad image when certain non-religious people know the origins.
Even the godless are aware of the true origins of these things and mock those in "modern" Christianity for keeping them, and a mess can result from this.

If for example a person mistakenly thinks that the bible actually tells us to keep these days and they turn out to be pagan, and they are under the impression that the bible is implying that they're not pagan days, that person is in danger of jumping to the conclusion that the Bible is not good to follow since it will look like the bible copied from the pagans and came after, when really the people falsely claiming to follow the bible are the ones that brought those days into their societies.

Also if one of those people knows that the bible says that the Messiah was going to be dead for 3 days and nights/72 hours, and then modern "Christians" with their tradition are saying he died on a friday and was already alive before the sun was up on sunday, which is NOT 3 days and nights, they may think the Bible actually says that too, when it doesn't.
(Modern Christianity is teaching that the Messiah was in the grave at the most for 1.5 days, when he told us the sign would be 3 days and 3 nights!)

From disobeying YHWH and choosing traditions of men over him, faith will be turned away from the Bible, when really their faith should not be turned away from YHWH and his scriptures, but the faith should be turned away from the people lying about following the Bible who help mislead the world.


Something to think about, when modern Christians refuse to acknowledge what they're doing is bad in the least bit, 1 possible question to ask is, would it be okay to celebrate islamic holidays in the name of the messiah? Or something similar.
An angle like this may help put it into perspective.
Most people would acknowledge it would feel dirty to take an islamic day and paste Christian themes over it and change the meanings of the traditions as if they had something to do with the gospels when that was obviously not the real meaning and origion of those traditions.

Another thing to know, paganism has crept into many things, and even with the biblical holy days people have tried to add pagan traditions onto them.
I will probably cover that on a different page though.
For example, those in Judaism may appear to be keeping a day of YHWH, they as well have adopted pagan practices through tradition and have tried to claim them as "jewish tradition". Beware.

The true calendar that YHWH has created is not used by modern societies.
Most people follow what I will call the "pagan calendar", or the gregorian calendar.
These modern holidays are kept according to the pagan calendar, so I will name their time according to it.

Finally, on this page I don't want to mention the names of false idols, since YHWH commanded not to make mention of other elohim or let them be heard from our lips.
I want these lies to be forgotten and no longer honored by anyone.
Today modern Christians actively keep the lies of idols alive, and speak of them as if it's entertainment and fun.
Years ago I was excommunicated by someone I thought was a Christian right after mentioning this to them.

So be careful yourself and don't speak of these wicked unclean things so that you are set-apart(holy) from the heathen;

Exodus 23:13 "And in all that I have said unto you take heed, and make no mention of the name of other Elohim, do not let it be heard out of your mouth"



Quick Points!
(The true people of YHWH do not honor idols or keep the laws of the heathen.)

YHWH commands us to not take the heathen practices that they kept and serve him in those same ways.
 Notice, this is actually about taking the heathen practices and remixing them with YHWH, this is exactly what the modern world has done all that it can get away with! His word tells us that he does not want us to behave like this;

Deuteronomy 12:29 "When YHWH your Elohim cuts off before you the nations whom you go in to dispossess, and you dispossess them and dwell in their land, take care that you be not ensnared to follow them, after they have been destroyed before you, and that you do not inquire about their elohim, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their elohim?—that I also may do the same'.
You shall not do so to YHWH your Elohim"

YHWH instructs us to not follow the abominable practices of the heathen nations;
Deuteronomy 18:9 "When you come into the land that
YHWH your Elohim is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominable practices of those nations"

We are commanded to not make mention of idols, yet modern people are keeping the days of idols, saying their names, and keeping their lies alive rather than letting the idols be put away as trash for good as they should be.;

Exodus 23:13 "And in all that I have said unto you take heed, and make no mention of the name of other Elohim, do not let it be heard out of your mouth"

YHWH tells us we are not to follow the laws of the heathen/pagan nations Yisrael was being brought into to overtake, and neither follow the laws of the Egyptians;

Leviticus 18:2 "Speak to the people of Yisrael and say to them, I am
YHWH your Elohim, You shall not do as they do in the land of Egypt where you lived, and you shall not do as they do in the land of Canaan, to which I am bringing you. You shall not walk in their statutes"

The apostle Paul rebuked those keeping heathen traditions
and laws after they were supposed to have come to the Truth of YHWH!;
Galatians 4:8 "However, then, when you did not know Elohim
, you did service to them which by nature are not elohim. But now, after that you have known Elohim, or rather are known of Elohim, how turn you again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto you desire again to be in bondage? You observe days, and months, and times, and years. I am afraid I may have labored over you in vain"

YHWH plainly tells us to not learn the way of the heathen!;

Jeremiah 10:2 "Thus says YHWH, learn not the way of the heathen"

Let us seek to open our eyes and desire to no longer stumble around blind in darkness.

Job 14:4 "Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? Not one"

Amos 5:21 "I have hated, I have despised your festivals, and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies"


Modern "holidays" and Traditions

"Sunday worship"

For this point I will cover the casting away of the 7th Day Sabbath of YHWH for the keeping of "Sunday worship".

The 1st day of the week, which many call "sunday", is often falsely called the "christian sabbath", but such a thing is not from the Bible but was created by wicked men.
 Men did not want the people keeping the actual 7th day Sabbath of YHWH.

Open your eyes to see, heathen renamed the 1st day of the week "Sunday", in honor of their sun idols.
Then, wicked ones made it a law that people would keep "Sunday" as a "holiday", and celebrate it.
(Take note that men also renamed other days of the week after their idols, and society went along with it, and still goes along with it!)

The people do not have eyes to even see what they're doing with this day, it's not uncommon for you to see a modern Christian building with "Sun Worship" even posted somewhere there!
 For example;

Ezekiel 12:2 "Son of man, you dwell in the midst of a rebellious house, which has eyes to see but does not see, and ears to hear but does not hear, for they are a rebellious house"

This above verse is not long after YHWH talks about the people wickedly turning their backs to him and honoring the sun idol!
 Later on this page, under the relating point, I will get to  "SUNday SUNrise services" that modern Christians are keeping, just like heathen of the past did! (Ezekiel 8:15)

There is no such thing as a new "christian sabbath" inside of the Bible. There is never the mention of such a thing as "Christian Sabbath".
YHWH's sabbaths are the same now as they have always been and they do not change, and, they're commanded for all people to keep at their appointed times.
 We learn from the Messiah that none of the Law of YHWH was done away with, and the people who keep every single dot of the Law are blessed.

True Christians keep YHWH's Sabbaths, so the actual "Christian Sabbath" has always been the 7th Day Sabbath of YHWH, and his other sabbaths!

This point will be addressed on page 2, 7th Day Sabbath of YHWH;


Valentine's Day

The world keeps this on Feb 14.

This modern event comes from an ancient pagan festival.
It is not as extreme as in the past, but can still carry the same spirit.




Lent is not as popular as some of the others, but I have seen close friends participating in a modern lent tradition.

This is said to originate from the pagan tradition "40 days of weeping for Tammuz", and it has like others been made into something that looks Christian.

A biblical reference mentioning this practice;

Ezekiel 8:13 "He said also to me, You will see still greater abominations that they commit, Then he brought me to the entrance of the north gate of the house of
YHWH and behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz"

He was 40 years old when he died by a boar, and each day of lent represents 1 year of his life, after lent is over you have what people call "e*****"(I do not want to say or write the name of this idol), and it is tradition to eat pig/ham on that day because a pig killed Tammuz.

Remember, YHWH has told us not to eat pigs and to not even touch their carcasses.

Mardi Gras

"Mardi Gras" means "Fat Tuesday" in French.

This festival is kept a certain amount of days before Spring(The time of the actual new year), it is observed according to the pagan calendar in either Feb or Mar.

This worldly festival is another that is claimed to be "Christian" related, yet it's origins are not Christian, and it has been around since before Christianity.

This event has nothing to do with the scriptures.


April 1st - April Fools/Fool's Day

On this day, many have set it apart to be a day dedicated to lying and misleading others, and laughing at it all as if it's funny and acceptable.


"e*****", "Good Friday", and "Resurrection Sunday"

First let me start off by saying, "e*****" is a tradition not from the Bible, we are not told to keep such a thing from any scripture.

Some may assume some of these traditions are taught in the bible since they see the world keeping them every year, but you will not find them in the bible, at least not in the positive sense but you can see such traditions in a negative light when it is talking about pagans keeping their abominable traditions and practices.
We are inheriting these traditions from men of the world, not from the Father and the bible.

It is a tradition to eat ham(pig) on this day, the bible instructs us to not eat pigs or even touch their carcasses.

It is a tradition to dye eggs on this day, this tradition comes from pagan practices and has been incorporated into this modern Christian day.

It is a tradition to honor an egg laying rabbit, and this too originates with pagan religions.

It is a tradition to get up early on "sunday" and watch the sunrise, this was a pagan tradition that has been adopted by modern Christianity.

It is a tradition to keep "good friday" and keep it as a special day, yet the ones teaching this tradition apparently have trouble counting to 3, since the friday to sunday time frame they're claiming is correct equals about 1.5 days in the grave and not 3 days.

Now, some bible translations including the mega popular and revered KJV at Acts 12:4 mistranslates YHWH's Passover, and crookedly choose to replace it with the word "e*****".

KJV is a decent translation, but remember it is not perfect and flawless like some modern Christian teachers are claiming.

So, you may come across someone who actually thought they could find such a tradition supported in their bible due to this, so be gracious to such people and share that the truth is it's a false translation and is not really in the bible.
English translations are just that, a translation, they're not perfect, and especially not perfect when certain kinds of people are translating.  
Here is a link to verify this mistranslation for yourself if you would like the evidence;


"e*****" today is taught to the world and children to be about the Messiah, when this is far from the truth.
"e*****" is the name of a pagan idol, the name of it's festival, and these traditions were also kept before the Messiah was even sent to the Earth, as they had nothing to do with him or his Father.

Here is what Dictionary.com and even my physical dictionaries say about "e*****",  it does not hide the fact that it is the name of a pagan idol and it's festival.

"Origin: before 900; Middle English ester, Old English ēastre;  cognate with German Ostern;  orig. name of a goddess and her festival; akin to east"

Modern christians have a tradition of getting up early on "sunday" to watch the sun rise in the east, they call this "sunrise service" but also "SONrise service".
This is a tradition that the pagan's religion had well before the Messiah's time on earth.
So, Christians did not come up with that idea, they're just repeating history and trying to attach it to YHWH and his son, celebrating pagan traditions in the name of the Messiah trying to redeem them as holy, clean, and righteous, when they're unholy, filthy, and corrupt.

Here is a similar event mentioned in scriptures;

Ezekiel 8:15 "Then said he unto me, have you seen this O son of man? Turn yourself again and you shall see even greater abominations than these, and he brought me into the inner court of YHWH's house and behold at the door of the temple of YHWH between the porch and the altar were about 25 men with their backs toward the Temple of YHWH and their faces toward the east, and they worshiped the sun toward the east."

Next, the subject of "good friday" and "resurrection sunday".
Now this day called "good friday" has become significant and a "holiday" in modern Christianity.

They're telling you that it's the day that the Messiah was sacrificed.
They seem to be teaching that they know this because in the gospels it says when the Messiah died, that the upcoming day was a sabbath.
They assume it's talking about the weekly sabbath which is on the 7th day of every week.

What they call "Friday" is the day before the 7th day Sabbath of YHWH that falls on what they call "saturday", so that's what they're using to support their teaching of "good friday".

Also the gospels goes from talking about the Messiah being sacrificed and skips ahead in time and mentions the 7th day Sabbath, Mary Magdalene going after the 7th day Sabbath of YHWH early on the 1st day of the week to visit the tomb of the Messiah.
So this can help cause people to misunderstand and think the gospels are saying Messiah died on the 6th day of the week("friday") and then was gone already before the sun was even up on the 1st day of the week, but it skipped days ahead to the event of the Messiah's life being restored to him by the Father.
Being familiar with the scriptures certainly helps prevent this misunderstanding, and you can easily verify that people are misunderstanding here because that is nowhere near 3 days and 3 nights.

Sorta as a side note, let's real quick draw attention to them admitting the 7th day Sabbath of YHWH is the day after their "friday" with this tradition, because when they teach this tradition of theirs they can say "Saturday" is the 7th day, yet when you get on the subject of keeping the Sabbath, some may suddenly  try to claim "sunday" is the sabbath, and defend their other tradition of congregating on "sunday".
It does not add up, and it's all a confusing mess, like a terribly knotted string.

The Messiah did not die on a "friday".
It would have actually been a wednesday.

...I've heard some people say you can back track and even verify this with recorded history, though I will have to update to include that project since I can't recall it at the moment.

The Sabbath that is mentioned near the event of his sacrifice is not the 7th day Sabbath of YHWH.
The Sabbath that is mentioned is the 1st day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread that is a set apart sabbath day, the gospels call this sabbath a high sabbath, drawing attention to it not being the regular sabbath.
The Festival of unleavened bread lasts for 1 week, and begins the day after YHWH's Passover.
Yahushua the Messiah was sacrificed at the time of the passover lambs on Passover, he was our passover lamb, and placed in the grave before the coming Sabbath which was the 1st day of unleavened bread.

The righteous Messiah was fulfilling these festivals and days in amazing beautiful ways. The Messiah was "unleavened", free of sin and corruption, and free of false teachings.
"Wednesday" as you may know it is the 4th day of the week.
Messiah died on the 4th day of the week, raised on the 7th day of the week, and was ready to fulfill another holy day that fell on that coming 1st day of the week, the holy day first fruits.

These days do not always fall in place like this, but at his time they fell perfectly at the right times for this to be fulfilled in perfection.

The Messiah was the first fruits to be offered to YHWH, he was the 1st out of death.
The truth on the whole matter, and actually seeing passover and the festival days is beautiful and verifies the Messiah, so it's very devastating for me to see modern christians refusing to see the festivals, and teaching children to ignore and think little of them, teaching children to reject the word of YHWH.

To make sense of this modern mess, it's important to realize that modern Christianity generally has very little knowledge of the Word of YHWH and his instructions, so the majority may have never even heard that there are more sabbath days than the weekly 7th day Sabbath of YHWH.

The system of modern Christianity efficiently keeps people in the dark, along with the distractions of the world mastering the hearts.

Another thing worth keeping in mind for this subject, days begin at evening, that is when it becomes dark.
So early on the 1st day of the week before the sun has came up can actually be taking place on the modern "saturday", as the sun goes down well before 12:00AM on "saturday".
Back then they did not have our clocks and neither did they have the man made rule saying 12:00AM is when a day started like people do now.

So, the obvious embarrassing problem with this teaching of theirs, "friday" to "sunday" does not equal 3 days.

They may say, "yeah, friday saturday sunday, 3 days", but no, that is not how it works when counting days..
This can really shows how so many people are sleeping and following whatever men tell them.

If you're questioning my math abilities right now, don't worry, you're probably not alone.

The Messiah said clearly how long he would be dead and it was a very crucial and important sign, it was 3 entire days, 3 days 3 nights.

Let's just use for an example, Friday 3pm to Saturday 3pm. That is only 1 days time passing, not 2 days just because it's taking place in 2 days.
So Friday 3pm to Sunday 3pm is only 2 days time passing..
And they're trying to fit 3 entire days into this time from a Friday to Sunday MORNING.

If you encounter groups who will just refuse to open their mind and acknowledge they're denying how to count to 3, please let it be a lesson to your being; the state of modern people and the teachers. They are closing their eyes to what they have to, so that they can keep pushing what they want to support.
Not being able to count to 3 is odd, when those people are able to count to 3 in other things.

2 Timothy 4:3 "The time will come when men will not put up with true teachings. Instead, to please their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear, and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and shall be turned aside unto myths"

2 Thessalonians 2:11 "Therefore Elohim sends them a strong delusion so that they may believe what is false, in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness"

Here is the verse where Messiah tells us of the sign we will be given;

Matthew 12:38 "Then some of the Pharisees and teachers of the law said to him, Teacher we want to see a miraculous sign from you, Yahushua answered, A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a miraculous sign! But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Yonah, For as Yonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth"

So the scriptures tell us he would be dead for exactly 3 days, which is 72 hours.
A small child can figure out if he died later in the day on Friday the 6th day of the week, and rose from death early on Sunday the 1st day of the week, that at the most is 1.5 days, or 36 hours, which is only half of 3 days.

These modern Christian teachings do not line up with the bible.
Now if you bring this to the attention of one of your teachers, and if they try to convince you 2+2 equals something other than 4, then realize they may be willing to twist everything in this same way to fit to what they want.

These foolish traditions are covering up Truth.
They're blinding people to the significance of the Messiah and the Passover.

Yahushua the Messiah was killed exactly on Passover at the time where the passover lamb was supposed to be sacrificed, and then YHWH resurrected him from death and he became the 1st to come out of death and receive an everlasting body, he was the 1st fruits.

Now today on passover and the festival of unleavened bread we remember the blemish free passover lamb YHWH provided for us and was slain, and break bread and let it represent the body of the Messiah that was broken for us.
Also we we have wine and remember his blood poured out for us, to save us.
(Some use plain grape juice like myself. Ancient wine was a very different product than today's unnaturally fermented wine where they quicken the process and add in yeasts and sugars which creates a less healthy drink, and a higher alcohol content. I am of course not against people consuming natural healthy wine for the record. If you don't drink wine and only want to use it during this time for remembrance, I would recommend you make your own the natural ancient way.)

Modern Christians have rejected the festivals of YHWH, and they ignore the significance and beauty behind his days and events, and make to themselves their own "holiday" where they celebrate the death and resurrection of the Messiah how they want to.
The people are blinding themselves to the important knowledge.

On what they call "e*****", it is a day modern christians feel they must attend congregation and so many people pack into the buildings even against their wishes, and it makes for one of the most uncomfortably uptight environments for many participating.

We must be keeping the set apart days of YHWH, not set apart days of false idols that YHWH did not command us to keep but rather actually told us not to keep, and especially we do not need to be rejecting HIS days for worthless traditions.

Every year many people may share about Passover and then it attract modern Christians full of rebuke and verbal battering, for example servants of YHWH who use facebook may post happy passover, and this is more than enough to attract wolves.
They may pull you into an infinite loop of discussing when you share facts to them and they do not acknowledge them but just continue on to try and figure out how to convince you over to whatever it is they're trying to convince you.
Just like with the other subjects they may descend on you over, remember to not let them side track and totally carry you away from focusing on the basic simple points.
For example, they may come to spoil you and they're basing a lot of what they're saying around Friday-Sunday when it doesn't equal 3, you may mention this and they just keep ignoring it, then later continue using Friday-Sunday like it is 3.
I have to constantly remind myself of this too, because I may bite and jump around on subjects when I needed to stay on 1 before moving to another, because it's a common tactic for the ones who do not follow the bible to flee from a subject before it exposes them, and honestly I think some of these people are lying to themselves and don't want to have to be honest with themselves as well so they are doing the fleeing for themselves as well. 

Also decide on what you're really talking about, so you can progress in a productive conversation.
I often share about passover, and will never say anything like "you must stop keeping your tradition of "e*****!", but modern Christians will carry on a conversation like I was attacking that tradition when it never came out of my mouth, and I may have just been like "happy passover! :)" with my family.
I like to focus on teaching people about passover and leading them to learn from YHWH and keep the holy days of YHWH, instead of focusing on telling people to stop keeping their traditions.
I would recommend you do this as well primarily.
If someone comes to YHWH and wakes up, they're probably going to see those traditions with new opened eyes, and can toss them out on their own.

So to finish up, you may wonder what an egg laying rabbit has to do with the Messiah, and the answer is nothing, and I will let you explore those details about the pagan's day for yourself more if you need to, just don't waste more time on that stuff than you need to.
You don't need these traditions to be happy, if you truly believe that, then what will you do when they're no longer being kept in the future if you was to gain immortality? How did the ancient nations survive without such traditions when they didn't even exist yet? Were they not able to be happy without them?
Don't let your mind sabotage you.
Don't teach them to your children since this is a big part of the problem, help them not to end up being nostalgic with such things, and give them even better fun and family events.
We could have all done things the right way and formed these kinds of feelings with things like YHWH's festivals and holy days, and had even more fun and happiness.

Also, on the egg dying tradition, it is said that people used to kill innocent infants and dye eggs in their blood for this pagan festival, which if that is accurate, then that is very disturbing.

The world loves it's traditions, and will defend them like they're pure goodness.



"Spring Break"


"Christmas" - Xmas

This day is kept by people on Dec 25.

This may be the most strongly defended pagan tradition, since it is so loved by the people and the celebration for this event is dragged out over many days.

Most everyone thinks this day is about the birth of the Messiah, but that is not the case, and it was a pagan celebration that has in recent history been altered to supposedly be about the Messiah, yet it should be obvious the Messiah has little to do with the numerous traditions.

Modern Christians have created the most materialistic tradition ever known, and are claiming to do so in the name of one of the least materialistic men ever known, a man who even taught against such things.
That alone should be enough to make one question this tradition and reject it.

"Xmas" is claimed to be a celebration for the birth of the Messiah, however "Xmas" has been celebrated well before the birth of the Messiah, because it originally was a pagan tradition, and it was under a different name and theme in those days.

Also "Xmas" was not even kept right after the Messiah's time on Earth by any Christians, it was still the Pagans who were observing these traditions along with their pagan teachings, but "Xmas" came about much later when it was slipped in by denominations of men, and those denominations simply changed the name of the pagan idol associated with the festival, to "Jesus", and this helped the wicked people not have to give up their traditions.

Now today, people are observing this and not aware of the fact they're keeping a pagan tradition alive, and trying to redeem it in the name of the Messiah.

In Paganism, they call Dec 25th the birthday of the sun, and they worship the sun as their elohim.
This is an ancient practice.

Modern Christianity is almost entirely pagan traditions remixed to look "christian", and this is no different.
The days of the Father have been cast off for what the people would instead keep.

Every year false teachers are giving false information to their listeners, they are teaching lies that are not from the bible, yet they teach it as if they learned it all from the bible.

The bible does not say for us to hold a festival every year celebrating Messiah's birthday.
(Of course we are happy and full of cheer over the fact the promised salvation has come!, but this is about separating facts from traditions to see things in a true light.)

If someone tells you that you must do this xmas tradition, they are adding to the law of YHWH, which is sin.

The festivals in the law had deeper meaning to them, such as passover that Messiah fulfilled, so when we keep the festival passover for example we also know we are also celebrating the Messiah our passover lamb. So it's not like we have no festivals about the Messiah.

The bible does not name the exact date of the Messiah's birth, so the Dec 25th date everyone is pushing should make you wonder how people came up with Dec 25th and why did they choose that date if they were not really sure when his birth date was.
(Now, if the bible did make it certain the date of his birth, it's a lot less likely people would be keeping the Dec 25th pagan inspired tradition.)

Though as mentioned above, it is not a coincidence that modern people are celebrating a birthday on Dec 25th, as the pagans used to do the same on Dec 25th for their idols.

It is the same tradition that powerful political parties were able to transform and bring into their new "religion" which is modern Christianity.
So many denominations like to claim they are separate from Catholicism, yet they are still following her ways.

Dec 21st is the Winter Solstice which is the darkest day of the year and the sun seems like it has disappeared or died.

3 days later on Dec 25th the daylight in the days begin to get longer and thus it is called the birth(or rebirth) of the sun, which is apparently why pagans called Dec 25th the birth day of the sun.
Rebirth is a big theme in some of these pagan traditions, and as well solstices tend to be special dates for them.

An interesting side note, this xmas tradition was once banned in some cities in the United States of America, the modern tradition has changed some since even recent history.

So due to the fact men invented idolatrous traditions where their idols were born on Dec 25th and people celebrated the birth day of idols on Dec 25th for long before the Messiah was sent to Earth, it seems a lot less likely that Elohim would have his only begotten son, his salvation for mankind, born on that date also sharing a birthday with every other false sun "god".
(Some people can be led astray by the words sun and son, though remember these are ENGLISH words, and English is but 1 of the many languages of the world. So do not fall victim to people trying to taint your thoughts on what the bible tells you with philosophy based on the English words.
For example, In Hebrew the word for sun is shemesh, and the word for son is ben. The spelling and pronunciation of those words do not draw you to link them.)

Also some other clues from scripture would indicate the time was not around Dec 25th.

Some think the scriptures indicate it was a time other than in the dead Winter, such as possibly around fall during the time of YHWH's festival Sukkot.
They also think this could fit into fulfillment of this festival by Yahushua coming down and dwelling with us temporarily.
That sounds interesting for sure, but we can't say that for certain.
A possible problem with this theory is the males were supposed to be in Yerusalem for Sukkot, and if his birth was during Sukkot that would mean the males like Yosef the husband of Mary were not in Yerusalem.

Also others think they have surviving information supporting he was born around the spring time, possibly on the true 1st day of the new year.
According to YHWH's calendar, the 1st month takes place in spring unlike the modern pagan calendar that was switched to begin in dead winter.
Those in favor of his birth being at the start of the year in spring, link the significance to the time of lambs being born, and the Messiah was the lamb of YHWH, as well this is the beginning of the year, a new year.
The historic evidence that they use to support this time frame appears to be suppressed by the Catholic denomination.

I will add more to this info later.


Evergreen tree's, or as most modern Christians call them, "christmas trees", was used in pagan traditions long before the modern xmas.

YHWH through the prophet Jeremiah even has warned us about this practice.

The Pagans were very dismayed at the signs of the heavens because for them near the winter solstice around Dec 22 everything would die, and the days got shorter and shorter and the sun reached its lowest point at this time and people would be freaked out that the sun would go away forever or that everything would die off forever.
The Evergreen trees did not die in winter so some people thought they were special.

Jeremiah 10:2 "Thus says
YHWH, learn not the way of the heathen and be not dismayed at the signs of the heavens, for the heathen are dismayed at them, for the customs of the people are vain, for one cuts a tree out of the forest the work of the hands of the workman with the axe, they deck it with silver and with gold, they fasten it with nails and with hammers so it doesn't move"

We are supposed to love truth and hate lies, if we tell a kid the lie of santa then we are lying to them.
Lying to your children is not
righteous, and is not righteous parenting, and your children will lose some degree of trust in you once they realize you intentionally lied to them.

Santa Claus promotes idolatry, or maybe I should say IS idolatry, and those taking part in some of the traditions involved with that entity are participating in idolatry but are not aware because they do not bother knowing fully what idolatry really is.

The honor and glory that belongs to YHWH is being given to the false idol "santa".
People are teaching their kids to pray to santa, obey the will of santa and do what he wants them to do so that they make it on his good list, leave food and drink offerings to santa, they are telling people santa has blessed them with things, that santa has powers that Elohim has such as knowing all things, some even going so far as declaring santa brought them their baby growing in their tummy or saying santa brought a baby brother or sister,  and so on.

Santa rearranged spells the Hebrew word satan.
It is not uncommon for people to have typos to where they accidentally write out satan instead of santa.
My preferred name for this character is "satan claws".

There are actually some in the modern world, even modern Christians, who judges people as a bad parent for not teaching this lie and wickedness.

It can be hard to accept that what you have been taught is good for so long, is really bad, though please rejoice in the truth and that you have been led to know what is truly good and bad, if you happily accept the truth, you will be set free from the bondage of lies.



We should be kind to others every day, we should buy gifts for people because we want to and not because we have to, not only does it become a burden but the gift doesn't come from the heart, if someone buys you a gift randomly then you know it came from the heart, if the only time they give you a gift is on a day that the world says you have to, then you know they're not exactly thinking about you that much, they may have even hated buying the gift because they didn't want to and hated spending the money, but felt like they had no choice!

Dropping this tradition will remove so much stress from you and your family you can even expect to gain a health boost from it.

Even kids that are bothered by the thought of losing their "precious" gifts (I say this while temporarily looking over their vain heart) they have nothing to worry about because you can actually afford MORE of what you WANT, without waiting, and without becoming poorer through debt to creditors.

Also it pains me that this time of year people claim to be so into helping the needy but then spend billions of dollars on toys that are junk and will quickly be considered burdensome trash, when all that money could help clothe and shelter the needy, and set up farm land in poor countries to cure their starvation.

I sometimes see "modern" Christians talking about giving toys on Christmas as if it is a great blessing and that others even need to do it, and I am pained all the way into my soul at the foolishness of their thoughts, since I can not understand why they find a piece of plastic to be more crucial than food, water, clothes, and shelter.
That money could go to NEEDS instead of vain junk that fades away and people lose interest in rather quickly.
Us from wealthier societies have been given so many things, we no longer even have the ability to appreciate things, and they can no longer hold our attention. We are a generation who lacks the ability to truly and deeply appreciate such items. These traditions are not making us happy. Kids do get more enjoyment from it because they're not burned out and desensitized to it yet, but people are actually cursing them with the same misery of not being able to be happy by over stimulating them with massive amounts of things!

Also something to remember, If a person can't say they are happy with what they have in life, then they don't need to continually be given things because they will never be happy no matter what they gain until they realize what happiness really is and your only fueling the fire to help them stay in a way of thinking that they NEED NEED NEED this and that, and to put little or no value on the things they or others have since they have the mindset they will just get another.




This tradition is kept on Oct 31.

Halloween means "Holy Evening".

Halloween's origins comes from Pagan festivals dedicated to a false elohim which they referred to as Lady of the Dead.

The Catholic congregation keeps this as 'all saints day' and 'all souls day'.

Something interesting to point out, you will hear day of the dead starts on November 1st and that Halloween is on October 31st and even though they're obviously the same thing, some will try to make you think they're not connected because of the different dates.
However days do not begin when our clocks say 12:00AM but instead new days begin at Evening, which is why we keep Sabbaths starting at Evening, and people in the past did the same thing not just YHWH's set apart people.
They call October 31st's Evening Holy(Halloween) when it is actually November 1st beginning, and the start of their pagan festival.

This tradition even today carries a lot of wickedness in it.
People dress up and celebrate bad things, death, murder, devils, spirits, sorcery..  as if these things are good fun and acceptable.
It really helps teach tolerance for many things that we should not tolerate.
Many modern Christians even celebrate these things at their congregation buildings and all participate, even though this behavior is very much opposite to how we should be conducting ourselves.

Enjoying a little fear with friends and family is not sin, and is fully possible to still do without celebrating a pagan day on Oct 31, and without playing with wicked things as if they're perfectly acceptable.

3 John 1:11 "Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. He who does good is of Elohim, but he who does evil has not seen Elohim"


"Black Friday"

Saint Patrick's Day

"Saint Patrick" was a Catholic man who converted Irish polytheist 
pagans to Catholicism and is famous for using a
shamrock(3 leafed clover) to explain the Catholic trinity to them because it has 3 leaves in 1, or so the story goes.

However the holy trinity doctrine is a false teaching that contradicts scripture in many ways and causes people to have a distorted view of what's going on in the scriptures, and YHWH is also being forgotten by those people who keep this doctrine.
So I would not celebrate a man converting people to catholicism, neither would I celebrate a man teaching others false things.

Traditions going along with this day are, wearing green, pinching people who do not wear green, getting drunk, ...

I have not researched this much yet, I still need to explore if this is really what the day is about, or if it's another cover to get humans to keep traditions done in the past.

New Year Celebration

The world observes a special day they call "new years" on the evening of Dec 31st and on into the early hours of Jan 1st.

As we have seen, most of the modern "holidays" are tied into pagan rituals and traditions, which may lead to wondering if even the new year celebration is some sort of pagan practice.

It looks like the tradition is linked to ancient traditions and still going strong today.
Plenty of pagans in the past did have new year traditions they kept, though not all have survived to be kept by modern people today.

The main tradition that stands out is having wild drunken parties that results in much sin, including sexual sin.

I am not going to focus so much on that stuff now, but focus on something else to show why this modern "holiday" is not good.

The main problem with this "new year" "holiday" is it's not really the start of the new year yet at Jan 1st!
 So the issue we should have with this event is that it's not truth and goes directly against the word of YHWH.

YHWH has made time itself, and has told us when the 1st month of the year is.
 The year doesn't begin in the dead of Winter, but during the month of Abib, which is the true 1st month.
 This takes place around the vernal equinox, "Spring" time.
Those who are in cold areas surely can feel Spring time is a new year beginning.

You may celebrate "new years" on Jan 1st and wonder how you are doing any harm, but by putting any sort of big deal on 12:00am Jan 1st rolling around, you are teaching with your actions to ignore the Word of YHWH, and you are helping to keep others from what is true.

Not only are you ignoring what YHWH has ordained, but by ignoring him you're teaching others through your actions to not put importance on what he has said, as if his words are of little importance, when really they're the most important things for us to listen to and understand.

Also as a reminder again, in addition to it not even being the new year at that time, waiting for a ball to drop at 12am can start to feel silly since days do not even start at 12:00am, they start at dark, modern clocks have not been around too long.

Man can not change YHWH's calendar, and it's important to know his calendar exists to be able to keep all of his special days at the proper time as he instructed us.

This day results in a large surge of sexual sins, these destroy families and hearts, and as I have shared before, one of the main victims of such acts are children who are being affected by arising relationship issues, and as well many children are conceived during this event and 1 or both parents never intended on staying with that person as a family, also many rapes happen to where females become pregnant and do not even know who did it if they have passed out or become too drunk.

These sort of sins also are tempting girls to have abortions and murder their growing children.

This day also results in a surge of gunshot wounds on innocent people and property damage, as it's a tradition to fire guns at 12am, and bullets stray all around, even through nearby people's houses.
Please do not support this gun shooting tradition, firearms are not toys, it's not good to discharge any gun carelessly for amusement, and deadly range of bullets are usually underestimated even by experienced shooters, and bullets fired up into the air can and do come straight down penetrating through people's roof tops and body.

This day also results in a large surge of drunken drivers, who go out and slay innocent people with their vehicles, ruining families and lives. Please help put an end to this, and do not tolerate drunk driving. When you know these kinds of events are taking place, nation wide partying, try to not go out if you don't have to and just stay home with your family for safety.

I personally have been devastated from Jan 1st partying.
I lost my only sibling, my best friend, and what often felt like my only family, to an alcohol related incident in 2005.
Alcohol was involved in this incident, but it was not a drunk driver.

My sibling was driving that night and tests showed they had no drugs or alcohol in their system. They were coming home very late from a party they were invited to.
My sibling had a male passenger who had been drinking that day, and according to a witness, that man confessed that he became angry and ended up grabbing the steering wheel to cause an accident, and the vehicle actually did crash, killing my sibling but leaving him unharmed.
It has now been over 10 years, and it still feels horrible to me like it just happened, and I can't forget the large amounts of blood I had to see belonging to someone I loved.
It saddens me that my children will go through life never knowing that sibling.
I likely would of had peace by now, but I will tell you what still haunts me, the worst part to me is I did not teach my sibling about YHWH, the Messiah, and righteousness, before they perished from off the face of the earth.
    Don't waste any time in seeking YHWH, for your sake and the sake of those close to you, find the courage to share the Truth with everyone, even those you've just met. Think in this way, everyone is someone's child, or parent, or friend, or sibling, or love.

Here I am going to list other lesser known traditions, "holidays", and ceremonies.
