For many modern Christians and other followers of the Bible, Christmas, Easter, and Halloween are occasions for families to come together and celebrate. But what are they celebrating? Christmas historically has nothing to do with Jesus but is actually a pagan sun worship practice celebrated after the Winter Solstice. Easter has pagan origins as well. It is linked to the pagan springtime goddess Eostre, who is celebrated around the spring equinox. Teutonic tribes also worshiped the dawn goddess Ostara, who represented fertility and rebirth and is represented with rabbits and eggs. Halloween’s origins can be traced back to the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain, which was held on November 1 in contemporary calendars. It was believed that on that day, the souls of the dead returned to their homes, so people dressed in costumes and lit bonfires to ward off spirits.
Many Christians do not fully honor the Sabbath on the seventh day either as the 10 commandment instructs. So why do Christians and others that believe in the Bible celebrate these holidays and break God’s commandments? The answer is tradition. “Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men.” Mark 7:7-8. People would rather relive their childhood memories through their children than live according to the way God instructs. Its time to break free from the traditions of pagan traditions and re-establish the traditions that the Most High has given believers thousands of years ago. To do this, we must keep the Laws, Statutes, and Commandments.
“For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.” 1 John 5:3
There are hundreds of Biblical laws, given to us by the Most High. The Hebrew word for law is Torah. Biblically, the Torah are the first five books of the Bible. They include Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. It is this same law that Yahshua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) himself followed. King David also followed them as well as King Solomon, all of the prophets, the 12 disciples, and the Apostle Paul.
