The Truth About The Easter or Ishtar Fertility Ritual For Christians

I see the word “Easter” all over my timeline, can someone tell me who “Easter” is? I looked in my Bible and I didn’t see the word “Easter” anywhere in my Bible. Does your Bible have the word Easter in it? Maybe we have different Bibles. Where did Christians get the word Easter if this word is not in our Bible?

With a little research you will find that the word “Easter” is not just a word, but Easter is a person’s name. Easter is the English translation of the name “Ishtar” and Ishtar was the Babylonian goddess of fertility, which is where the image of rabbits (which were known to be sexually hyperactive and reproduce a lot) and the image of eggs (evidence of reproduction even though rabbits do not lay eggs) are derived from.

For some reason, people think that as long as they mix Jesus into something, then everything will be fine. But what does the Bible say about combining Jesus with worldly things?

2 Corinthians 6:15 – “What similarities are there between Christ and Belial? What is the common part of believers with unbelievers?”

So I ask: What similarities are there between Christ and Easter?

Can someone explain?

2 Corinthians 6:16 “What does the temple of GOD have to do with idols? Because we are the temple of GOD who live according to these words of GOD:”

Isn’t Easter a Babylonian Idol? You can google images of Easter/Ishtar statues and see images of goddesses worshiped by pagans, images that some people still worship today.

So how do we take these unbiblical Easter/Ishtar words and combine them with the Jesus of the Bible? Did Jesus give us a date to celebrate his resurrection? Did you know that the Apostle Paul warned Christians in the Galatian church not to make certain days special. And not observing certain months or seasons as special months and seasons. The Apostle Paul warned Christians against doing this and said that he feared that his efforts on their behalf would be in vain because of this.

Let’s Read:
Galatians 4:9-11 – “But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage? You observe days and months and seasons and years. 11 I am afraid for you, lest I have labored for you in vain.”

The Bible says we are in this World but not of this world. Therefore, we do not consider times and dates in this world to be anything special. If we celebrate the day as something special, we observe worldly things and thus unite ourselves with this world.

Did Jesus die on Friday? And was he resurrected on Sunday? The Bible says Jesus was in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights.

Matthew 12:40 – “For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”

So if you count 3 days and 3 nights from Friday, what day do you get? Sunday or Monday? So how could this be Friday? And what makes a Friday good?

The Bible says no one is good except GOD alone.

Mark 10:18 – “So Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God.”

When you research the origins of Easter, egg coloring, bunnies, and more, you’ll discover some very dark and twisted things done by pagan cultures in the past. Eastern eggs were originally colored with blood, not cats, and Easter Sunday was once a perverted and very sexy holiday for pagans. This day was not chosen by chance, it coincided with the time of pagan fertility celebrations. Because Easter/Ishtar is the goodness of fertility

In Conclusion:

I do not write these things to condemn or judge anyone, I write this to encourage the body of Christ to be careful about taking a worldly mentality in observing days, times, months, and seasons to commemorate special celebrations like the people of this world do it. As Paul stated in Galatians 4:9-11.

In Romans 14:4-6, the Bible states that whoever commemorates that day, he commemorates it to GOD. If you choose to make today about GOD, let it be about GOD. My main point of contention here is the use of the name of the goddess Easter/Ishtar. If it’s about the resurrection of Jesus Christ for you, then why do you name a pagan god and Jesus on the same day? If today is about the resurrection of Jesus Christ then why are you hanging pictures of bunnies and boiling colored eggs? What do eggs, bunnies, and Easter/Ishtar have to do with the resurrection of Jesus Christ? Let us not mix and combine these worldly elements with the things of GOD.

That’s all for today friends,

GOD bless you all who are in Christ Jesus.
