    Is it at all possible to showsome pattern that indecate the real meaning of Easter. Such as crocheted  bookmarks, neckless, kitchen towels, hand towels.etc all with the Cross of Christ. Or the crown of victory on Him being rised from the dead on Easter morning. Do you know why it is called Easter?

      Your post makes me wonder if you
      know what Easter really is.  The true
      origin of Easter is more about fertility and mother earth than the Bible. 
      “The egg was a sacred symbol among the Babylonians. They believed an old
      fable about an egg of wondrous size which was supposed to have fallen from
      heaven into the Euphrates River. From this marvelous egg – according to the
      ancient story – the Goddess Ishtar (Semiramis), was hatched. And so the egg
      came to symbolize the Goddess Easter,” The Jewish Encyclopedia, Vol. 9, p.
      309.  Three month old infants were sacrificed to Ishtar and their blood
      was used to dye eggs in honor of the false god.  To imbue fertility upon
      their growing season, Pagans would roll these eggs on their fields.  The
      eggs were then hidden from evil spirits to later be collected in
      baskets.

      The Scriptures teach that Christ was crucified on Passover (the 14th of the first Sacred Hebrew month, Nissan) and rose on Wave Sheaf (the 16the of Nissan), not on the pagan holiday of Easter/Ishtar, which was observed centuries before Christ by the pagans.

      Neither the apostles nor the
      Messiah commemorated Easter.  “Constantine the Great, Roman emperor,
      convoked the Council of Nicaea in 325. The council unanimously ruled that the
      Easter festival should be celebrated throughout the Christian world on the
      first Sunday after the full moon following the vernal equinox,” says the
      History Channel.  And thus had begun the mingling of paganism with
      Christianity.  For the first 300 years
      after the Savior’s crucifixion, the early church kept the festival of Passover
      as commanded in Leviticus 23.  As Paul
      wrote in I Cor 5:7, “…Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us.”  Every tiny minute symbol of Passover points
      to Christ the Messiah.

       

      So these symbols for Easter in this blog are correct.  If you want
      symbols of Christ’s Resurrection you need to look for symbols of Passover and
      Wave Sheaf, but you won’t find them on a secular website.

        I don’t think that fair that a simple request deserves someone to be so rude. She wasn’t asking for you to tell her what you believe.

        • SoliderForTruth

           Mandygirlie (cute name), I was not trying to be rude at all.  I’m merely expressing the Facts of History.  And if Missie Lee want’s symbols of our Savior, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, she would need to look elsewhere.
