For Catholics and some other denominations of Christianity the Holy Season of Lent has begun. But the truth that fewer of the so-called faithful are willing to admit is that this “Holy Season” is rooted in wickedness, idolatry and hypocrisy. Lent is presented as a 40 day period of prayer, fasting and penance in preparation for Easter. In truth these idolatrous celebrations begin a few months before the actual day of Easter. The festivals known as Mardi Gras and Carnival are the true beginning. How are these celebrations related to Easter? Both Mardi Gras and the Carnivals that are kept in the Caribbean Islands, Brazil, and other parts of the world occur before the period of time known as Lent or the holy season. These celebrations give honour to Bacchus, who is the Greek god of wild parties (revelling), orgies (fornication), and drunkenness. For those that practice this tradition it is an opportunity to break the Heavenly Father’s commandments and do all manner of wickedness before the beginning of their “holy season.” In the past, the Israelites that were in captivity during the time of the Greeks were forced to break the commandments and keep celebrations honouring this idol. In this time many people who profess to be Christians, keep these idolatrous customs willingly and forsake the commandments of the Heavenly Father and Christ.
I Corinthians 6:9-10 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, (10) Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
Ash Wednesday and Lent
The celebration of Carnival varies in length throughout the word but it comes to and end on what is called Fat Tuesday or Shrove Tuesday. Shrove comes from the old English word “shrive” which means to absolve people of their sin. This further proves that many so called Christians believe that they are forgiven for all the abominations they commit during the season of Carnival. Mardi Gras is the more popular name for Fat Tuesday. After Fat Tuesday comes Ash Wednesday which marks the beginning of Lent the so called “holy season.” Now the switch is made from honouring Bacchus to honouring the goddess of fertility. Isis, Ishtar, Ashtaroth, Diana, and the Queen of Heaven are just a few of the names that people have named her over the years, but it is still the same idol. On Ash Wednesday she is honoured by baking hot cross buns. Do the scriptures make mention of this? Yes!
Jeremiah 7:18 The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.
In the past, the children of Israel knew they were committing idolatry but continued to serve these idols believing that they would receive carnal blessings (money, houses, food, etc.) in return. In truth they only provoked the anger of the Heavenly Father bringing more wrath upon themselves.
Jeremiah 44:16-17 As for the word that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of the LORD, we will not hearken unto thee. (17) But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil.
The so called “holy season” of Lent comes to an end on Easter Sunday. Easter is an idolatrous festival, falsely observed by most denominations of Christianity as the celebration of the resurrection of Christ.
