Sooo my sis Yapah Brown told me they cancelled Mardi Gras ... I wonder is ASH Wednesday cancelled as well...🤔 .. WELLLLL just in case it’s not: It too is ... ya guessed it PAGAN! How are so called followers of The Messiah aka Christians.. partaking in a Roman festivities?? 🤷🏾♀️
🤔 Riddle me this...hundreds of thousands of Christians are lining up to get an ashy cross on their foreheads by a Catholic priest... 😐Pssst...(The Most High is against idolatry)..
📖 1 Corinthians 10:19-21 What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing? But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to The Most High and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of The Most High, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the The Most High's table, and of the table of devils.
Q: Lent is found NOWHERE in the bible, yet u love the bible..How? Especially your pastors who pushes celebrating lent, but then preach that they follow HIS word.. 🤔christians celebrating catholicism rituals in a Baptist church that The Most High doesn't dwell in.. 👀 nobody wondering why?
A. The Most High is NOT the author of confusion!.soo WHO Y'ALL SERVING? 😐📣💥
🍎Let us examine Lent, its practices and customs, its historic and religious origins, and its true meaning from the Bible’s perspective, not from the “traditions of men” (Mark 7:7-9).
🎭The idea behind Pagan Mardi Gras or carnival celebrations is that most people overindulge before giving up something for yet another pagan ritual christians love LENT which begins the following day with Ash Wednesday. (Lent is the 40 weekdays from Ash Wednesday to Easter observed by the Roman Catholic, Eastern and some Protestant churches as a period of penitence and fasting.)
✝️Lent was a time of penance, of fasting, of abstinence. Folks abstained from all sorts a good stuff including meat. They also gave up eggs and dairy products. So on Tuesday, the day before the start of the Lenten fast, folks cleared out their cupboards of all the foods they could not have for the next 40 days. They cooked them up and ate like pigs. In essence they feasted before the fast. [Hypocritical]
📣From Ash Wednesday to Easter, many solemnly mark their foreheads with ash, “fasting” (or abstaining from certain foods or physical pleasures) for 40 days. This is done to supposedly imitate the Messiah’s 40-day fast in the wilderness (Matthew 4:1-2). Some give up smoking. Others give up chewing gum. Still others give up over-eating or cursing. People vow to give up anything, as long as it prepares them for Easter, (ANOTHER PAGAN RITUAL)
😔People who observe LENT think they're dedicated and sincere -- but they are sincerely WRONG! Your dedication lies to whom? NOT The Most High.. please understand! #StopBeingReligiousAndBeObedient
➕The Purpose of Lent➕
According to the Catholic Encyclopedia,
“the real aim of Lent is, above all else, to prepare men for the celebration of the death and Resurrection of Christ…the better the preparation the more effective the celebration will be. One can effectively relive the mystery only with purified mind and heart. The purpose of Lent is to provide that purification by weaning men from sin and selfishness through self-denial and prayer, by creating in them the desire to do God’s will and to make His kingdom come by making it come first of all in their hearts.”
On the surface, this belief sounds sincere. However, it does not agree with the Bible, The Most High's holy Word -- the only source of true spiritual knowledge and understanding (John 17:17). (II Timothy 3:14-17).
👆First, understand that the “celebration of the death and Resurrection of Messiah” to which the preceding quote refers is so-called “Good Friday” and “Easter Sunday” -- holidays deeply rooted in ancient paganism. They were instituted by mainstream Christianity in order to counterfeit and replace the Passover season. Which is a HOLYDAY.. (but you don't want to celebrate that) smh
✌Second, the Bible says that we are purified -- cleansed, set apart and made pure in TMH’s sight -- by the shed blood of the Messiah (Hebrews 9:11-14, 22; 13:12). This, along with faith (Acts 15:9) and humbly submitting to and obeying TMH (James 4:7-10) through His truth and prayer (John 17:17; I Timothy 4:5), makes us clean before TMH. No amount of fasting, abstaining from physical pleasures or any other form of self-denial can purify us! Read that again!
➕Pagan Origins of Lent➕
Lent was NEVER observed by the Messiah or his apostles. He commanded his disciples to “Go you therefore, and teach all nations…teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20). 📰👉Lent or Easter was not one of them!
📚Alexander Hislop wrote in his book The Two Babylons“The festival, of which we read in Church history, under the name of Easter, in the third and fourth centuries, was quite a different festival from that now observed in the Romish Church, and at that time was not known by any such name as Easter…That festival [Passover] was not idolatrous, and it was preceded by no Lent. Lent was not observed by the first century Church! It was first addressed by the church at Rome during the Council of Nicea in A.D. 325, when Emperor Constantine officially recognized that church as the Roman Empire’s state religion. Any other form of Christianity that held to doctrines contrary to the Roman church was considered an enemy of the state."
