Easter vs Passover


Christ is our Passover Lamb, not our Easter Bunny
  
Tradition Deceives...
Organized religion observes Lent, 40 days before Easter.


Truth Transforms...
Jesus observed the Feast of Dedication (John 10:22), 40 days before Passover.

And He taught His followers to observe the Passover. Matthew 26: 2-19


What About Acts 12:4?
And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions (4 squads) of (16 Roman) soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.


The Word Easter Only Appears One Time
The word Easter was inserted by the translators that one time in Acts 12:4. They knew the Greek word was Passover, but they chose to translate it as "Easter" instead.

Jeremiah 8:8
How do you say, We are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes (translators) is in vain. (totally worthless)

2 Peter 2:1-2
But there were false prophets also among the people (in the time of Jeremiah), even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily (secretly) shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

How Jesus Describes Deception
 

And because iniquity (ignoring God's commandments) shall abound, the love of many (of the truth) shall wax cold. Matthew 24:12

Howbeit in vain do they worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. Mark 7:7

Acts 17:30
And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commands all men every where to repent. (turn in the right direction)


Acts 17:11
These (Bereans) were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

Jesus' Own Words
If you love Me, you will be keeping my commandments. John14:15


Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: (not man's words) and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. John 14:21-24


Enter by the narrow gate; for wide (easy) is the gate and broad (popular) is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Matthew 7:13

Churchanity or Christianity
Why are man-made holidays so popular, and God's Holy Days ignored? MONEY! Easter and Christmas are huge money makers for merchants and Churchanity.

And He (Jesus) said to those who sold doves (and cards, flowers, baby chicks, rabbits, toys, etc.) “Take these things away! Do not make My Father’s house a house of merchandise!” John 2:16

Leviticus 23

The Feasts of the LORD are a statute forever. (Has forever passed?)
