Trinity & Sunday Worship IS of Pagan Origin

Question: Where does it say in the Bible that the Holy Spirit is co-equal with God the Father and the Son of God? Answer: It doesn't.




Spiritualism--"The Holy Spirit proceeds from the Godhead--the infinite source of all.  It is the Breath of Atman,--the infinite power of God.  It is not separate from, but operative through the Christ--the Higher Self." Dictionary of All Scriptures and Myths, by G.A. Gaskell, p 366 (this dictionary uses the philosophic sacredly held writings of all religions such as Zoroaster, Philo, Swedenborg, Buddah, Hermes, the Qabbalah, etc., in order to derive the definitions--hence the definitions given are mystical and spiritualistic).

     Spiritualism--"Put thy trust in the Divine Breath--the Holy Spirit--which is the functioning of the Absolute [God] upon the buddhic plane." Dictionary, p 816.

     Spiritualism--"Medieval theology generally distinguished...the Holy Ghost [as] being the copula [or union] between the Father and the Son." Dictionary, p 770.

     Spiritualism--"The difference between the Father and the Son is this--'The Father' is to express God-hidden, 'The Son' is God-manifest, and the 'Holy Ghost' is the knowledge of the Spirit of truth, proceeding from the experience of both, as God hidden, and revealed." Dictionary, p 770.

     Spiritualism--"In the heart of the Trinity [or One God] the Creator laughs and gives birth to the child.  The child laughs back at the Creator and together they give birth to the Spirit." Meister Eckhart quoted in The Coming of the Cosmic Christ, p 218-19, by Matthew Fox.

     Spiritualism--"I [Father of All Things] order you [Son of Light] to go forth, to become as a guide to those who wander in darkness, that all men within whom dwells the spirit of My Mind (The Universal Mind) may be saved by My Mind in you, which shall call forth My Mind in them....for I am the Mind of the Mysteries...'" The Secret Teachings of All Ages, p XL, by Manly P. Hall--33rd Degree Mason (Hall is quoting Hermes or Cush who was the interpreter of the Mysteries, or basically the founder of spiritualistic Babylonian religion.  Cush was also the father of Nimrod, who founded Babylon and then based its Mystery religion upon the teachings of his father).

Trinity & Sunday Worship IS PAGAN. THE TRINITY GOD "EXPLAINED"
: "Every person who understands why keeping the 7th day Sabbath is TRUTH, also understands, or should with study; understand what's wrong with worshiping the Mystery Trinity triangle god and worshiping the living God on Sunday. BOTH are of PAGAN ORIGIN, implemented at almost the same time in history. The Trinity god compares to Baal in Elijah's day and any other false god. The Trinity god certainly did NOT exist at creation; it evolved from Satan's influence on man. When you worship the Trinity god you are worshiping Satan himself; who's plans from Heaven were to be worshiped: Isaiah 14:14 "I will make myself like the Most High." Don't sell your soul to the devil now! Jesus is just about to come get His faithful ones." CKRH

What Roman Pagan Symbols or signs were incorporated by the Christian faith?
answer: For starters: The cross; the Trinity; Sunday worship; Christmas; Easter; head of the Church being known as the "Montifex Maximus, the cross, the resurrection, communion, celibacy for priests, Christmas, Easter, hell, 

  • Christmas as the celebration of the birth of Christ was a conversion of Roman pagan ritual of Saturnalia (with gift-giving and orgies).
  •  the idea of a Triune God was used mostly in Celtic cultures. Few if any Roman gods or goddesses were multi-personality.
  • The entire Christmas Story (alla St. Luke) was pretty much a 'cut and paste' of the old Persian god Mithras' story of his birth.
  • The Equal Armed Cross (not the crucifix) was originally a representation of both the sun and the four seasons of the year.
  • The celebration of Easter comes from the Germanic celebration of the beginning of spring, with all the attendant fertility symbols of eggs, rabbits, hares, lilies, etc.
  • Even the vestments of the priest at Mass are 'knock offs' of the vestments worn by priests of the Elysian mysteries and also of Mithras.
  • all crosses in the christian faith came from pagan rituals and beliefs.

"Christians copied the "Sunday keeping" practices of the pagan religion of Mithraism":

 Christmas

By Sidney Davis

That Christmas was originally a pagan festival is beyond all doubt. The time of the year and the traditional ceremonies connected with it's celebration prove it's origin. Far and wide, in the realms of Paganism was this festival observed.  In the pagan religions of the Persians, Arabians and the Oriental East was celebrated the birthday of the Lord Moon on the 24th of December[1] His name was known as MENI.  That he was revered as a masculine deity is where we get the idea "the man of the moon" from. This celebration was connected to Mithraism which was the official pagan religion of the Roman Empire under Constantine.  The two Mithraic sacred days were Sunday called "the venerable day of the sun" as Constantine called it in his edict of 321, and also December 25, "dies natalis solis" or "the birthday of the sun." [2]  Thus the two celebrated deities of Mithra (December 25) and Menai (December 24) were celebrated on the very days that Christians called Xmas eve and Xmas day.

Mithras was worshipped as guardian of arms, and patron of soldiers and armies. It may be of interest for you to know that the "handshake" was developed by those who worshipped him as a token of friendship and as a gesture to show that you were unarmed. When Mithras later became the Roman god of contracts, the "handshake" gesture was imported throughout the 
Mediterranean and Europe by Roman soldiers. [3]

In fact, if truth be known, the holiday of Christmas has always been more Pagan than Christian, with it's associations of Nordic divination, Celtic fertility rites, and Roman Mithraism. That is why both Martin Luther and John Calvin abhorred it, why the Puritans of New England refused to acknowledge it, much less celebrate it (to them, no day of the year could be more holy than the Sabbath), and why it was een made ILLEGAL in Boston! The holiday was already too closely associated with the birth of older Pagan gods and heroes. And many of them (like Oedipus, Theseus, Hercules, Perseus, Jason, Dionysus, Apollo, Mithra, Horus and even Arthur) possessed a narrative of birth, death, and resurrection that was uncomfortably close to that of Jesus. And to make matters worse, many of them pre-dated the Christian Savior.

What would you do if you knew that Yahuvah directly and specifically  forbad the celebration of what we call today Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in Scripture?

Isayah 65:2-11-- 
     2 I have spread out My hands all the day to a rebellious people, who 
     walk in a way which is not right, after their own thoughts; devices; 
     3 A people who provoke me to anger continually to My face; who 
     sacrifice in gardens, and burn incense on altars of brick; 
     4 Who assemble and spend the night keeping memorials for the dead, 
     who eat swine's flesh, and the broth of abominable things; unclean 
     foods, is in their vessels, 
     5 Who say; Stand by yourself! Do not come near me, for I am holier 
     than you! These are a smoke in My nostrils, a fire that burns all the 
     day.

     6 Behold, it is written before Me; I will not keep silence, but will 
     recompense, even recompense into their bosom. 
     7 Your iniquities and the iniquities of your fathers together, says 
     Yahweh: who have burned incense upon the mountains, and 
     blasphemed me upon the hills. Therefore I will measure their former 
     work into their bosom. 
     8 This is what Yahweh says: As the new wine is found in the cluster, 
     and one says; Do not destroy it, for a blessing is in it; so will I 
    do for My servant's sake, that I may not destroy them all. 
     9 And I will bring forth a seed out of Yaaqob, and out of Yahdah an 
     inheritor of My mountains; and My elect will inherit it, and My 
     servants will live there. 
     10 Sharon will be a fold of flocks, and the Valley of Achor a place 
     for  herds to lie down, for My people who have sought Me. 
     11 But YOU ARE THOSE WHO FORSAKE YAHUVAH, WHO FORGET MY 
     HOLY MOUNTAIN, WHO PREPARE A TABLE FOR THAT TROOP AND 
     WHO FURNISH A DRINK OFFERING FOR THAT NUMBER.

The word "Troop" is translated from the Hebrew word Gad, Unger's Bible Dictionary, on page 415, shows us:

     Gad, a Canaanite deity improperly rendered "troop" (Isa. 65:11), was 
     the god of good fortune, supposed to be the deified planet Jupiter. 
    This  star is called by the Arabs "the greater luck" as the star of good 
     fortune.

The word "Gad"  is word #1408 a variable of word #1409 which comes from word #1464 in Strong's Hebrew Dictionary and means:

 01408 Gad {gad} 
 a variation of 01409; TWOT - 313e; n pr m 
 AV - non translated variant 1; 1 
 Gad = "god of fortune" 
 1) a Babylonian deity

01409 gad {gawd} 
 from 01464 (in the sense of distributing); TWOT - 313d; n m 
 AV - troop 2; 2 
 1) fortune, good fortune

01464 guwd {goode} 
 a primitive root [akin to 01413]; TWOT - 325; v 
 AV - overcome 2, invade with troops 1; 3 
 1) to invade, attack 
 1a) (Qal) to attack

One will find from cursory research that this deity was one easily associated with the pagan military and found it's pagan expression in the Roman pantheon in the worship of Mithras - the god of Constantine the Great.

The word Number in the text comes from the Hebrew word Meni.   Unger's Bible Dictionary, page 416, tells us:

     Me'ni (me'ni; Heb. meni, destiny or fate ). Name of the god of 
     destiny or fortune worshiped by the ancient Hebrews in time of 
     apostasy (Isa. 65:11): ``But you who forsook the Lord, who forget my 
     holy mountain, who set a table for Fortune and fill cups of mixed 
     wine  for Destiny'' R. S. V. Fortune is ``Gad'' (q. v.) and Destiny is 
     ``Meni.'' M. F. U.

   Strong's Hebrew Dictionary gives us this definition of the word Meni,

04507 Maniy {men-ee'} 
 from 04487;; n pr m 
 AV - number 1; 1 
 Meni = "fate" or "fortune" 
 1) god of fate who the Jews worshipped in Babylonia

The Two Babylons by Alexander Hislop, 1959, notes on page 94,

"In the authorised version Gad is rendered "that troop," and Meni, "that number;' but the most learned admit that this is incorrect, and that the words are proper names."

What were these condemned people doing when Isayah prophesied against them? They were celebrating the days of what we call Christmas Eve and Christmas Day!

The Two Babylons, pages 94-96:

    "'On the 24th of the 10th month' that is December, according to our 
reckoning, `the Arabians celebrated the BIRTHDAY OF THE LORD--that is the 
Moon...that Lord Moon, according to them was born on the 24th of 
December...The name of the Lord Moon in the East seems to have been 
Meni...Gad refers to the sun god...Meni, or Manai, signifies 'The 
Numberer,'...The name of the 'Man of the Moon," or the god who presided 
over the luminaries among the Saxons, was Mane... this `Lord  Moon' in 
the East...Babylonians, Chaldeans and among the Canaanites... was 
Meni--the numberer.''

According to Hislop, Gad refers to the Sun--God, and Meni the Moon--God. The people were offering to these Gods in Isayah 65:11.  Isayah 65 is regarded by many Bible students as a prophecy pertaining especially to the LAST DAYS.

Mene was the god of Babylon whose worshipped was being celebrated by King Belshazzar at his infamous drunken feast who dared to mixed the holy with the profane by using the holy vessels of the Temple with His pagan worship as  recorded in the Book of Daniel.[see note 6]

"Then they brought the golden vessels that were taken out of the temple of the house of God which was at Jerusalem; and the king, and his princes, his wives, and his concubines, drank in them." Daniel 5:3

 Upon Belshazar and his festival gathering God pronounced, "Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharisin" which means literally, "The numberer is numbered."  Belshazzar died on the very night of the feast of Mene,  what the Gentile Christians call  "Christmas Eve".

The attachment of the Mass to Christ is the same as the attachment of the profane with the Holy. This principle is forbidden in the word of God and the Testimony of His Spirit.

Eze 22:26 -  Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.

Eze 44:23 -  And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and 
 cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.

"Our only safety is in being joined to the Lord Jesus Christ. We can afford to lose the friendship of worldly men. Those who join themselves to worldly men, that they may carry out their unsanctified purposes, make a fearful mistake; for they forfeit the favor and blessing of God. I am to urge upon the attention of our people that the Lord Himself has placed a wall of separation between the world and that which He has established on the earth. God's people are to serve Him, for Christ has called them out of the world, and sanctified and refined them, that they may do His service. . . . There is no such thing as maintaining concord between the profane and the holy. There can be no concord between Christ and Belial. But "the Lord hath set apart him that is godly for himself" (Ps. 4:3). And this consecration to the Lord, this separation from the world, is plainly declared and positively enjoined in both the Old and the New Testaments." --Letter 329, Dec. 11, 1905, to J. A. Burden, manager of the Loma Linda Sanitarium. (also This Day with God, page 354)

God's people are called out from the world in order to teach the world to not blaspheme God in the mixing of the profane and holy in their sanctity of Sunday.  But we continue to sanction the celebration of a pagan holy  day by saying "Let's keep Christ in Christmas"![4]

What we say in defending the celebration by Christians of Christmas can be said of the Christian celebration of Sunday as the Sabbath. Yet those who seek to bring these things to the attention of the church are looked upon like Elijah as "he that troubleth Israel".  Those who seek to guard the commandments statutes and commandments "as jealously as the ark was guarded by ancient Israel"[5] are instead seen as  "more concerned with winning theological arguments than with simply spreading the good news.."[see note 4]  But the Spirit saith:

"The truth and the glory of God are inseparable; it is impossible for us, with the Bible within our 
reach, to honor God by erroneous opinions." The Great Controversy, page 597

What does the Holy Ghost say to those who pay homage to this new modeled pagan festival of Isayah 65:11 we call Christmas - the so-called memorial of the birth of Christ and the Roman celebration of His Mass? He says in Isaiah 65:12

12  Therefore will I NUMBER YOU TO THE SWORD, and ye shall all BOW DOWN 
TO THE SLAUGHTER: because when I called, ye did not answer; when I spake, 
ye did not hear; but did evil before mine eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not. 
13  Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, my servants shall eat, but 
ye shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall drink, but ye shall be thirsty: behold, my servants shall rejoice, but ye shall be ashamed: 
14  Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for 
sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit. 
15  And ye shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen: for the Lord 
GOD SHALL SLAY THEE, and call his servants by another name: 
16  That he who blesseth himself in the earth shall bless himself in the 
GOD OF TRUTH; and he that sweareth in the earth shall swear by the God of 
truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are 
hid from mine eyes.

Has anyone read the ninth chapter of Ezekiel lately? Brethren the Angel with the writer's inkhorn will not place His seal upon anyone worshipping the Beast or his Image. Christmas is not Christmas, it is BEASTMAS!

The charge and the punishment made against those who sanctify "the birthday of the sun" Christmas is the same charge and punishment against those who sanctify "the venerable day of the sun"  Sunday.

Now brethren, this is what I just cannot understand, we will rationalize and cavil our way into giving homage to false worship in the name of Yahushua HaMashiach  (Jesus Christ) justifying it  by various means and stop short of giving it the same honor that the rest of Gentile Christianity gives it and on the other hand we stop short and halt and stumble over Scripture.

"HOW LONG HALT YE BETWEEN TWO OPINIONS? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him."

Season Greetings,

[6] Belshazzar's feast mixing the holy and the profane:

"Admitted to a share in kingly authority and power at fifteen years of age, Belshazzar gloried in his power, and lifted up his heart against the God of heaven. He despised the One who is above all rulers,the General of all the armies of heaven. "Belshazzar the king made a great feast to a thousand of his lords, and drank wine before the thousand" (Daniel 5:1). The profane orgies of royal mirth were attended by men of genius and education, by masters of architecture. On this occasion there was music and banqueting and wine drinking. Decorated women with their enchantments were among the revelers. Exalted by wine, and blinded by delusion, the king himself took the lead in the riotous blasphemy. His reason was gone, and his lower impulses and passions were in the ascendancy. His kingdom was strong and apparently invincible, and he would show that he thought nothing too sacred for his hands to handle and profane. To show his contempt for sacred things, he desecrated the holy vessels taken from the temple of the Lord at its destruction." --Letter 51a, 1897, pp. 3-4.
