Easter and the secret worship of the Anunnaki

http://humansarefree.com/2014/04/the-truth-about-easter-and-secret.html

The following article is based on J. R. Terrier’s book “History of Easter – Hidden, Secret Origins and Mystery Religion“. Additions by Alexander Light, HumansAreFree.com;

Easter is an annual celebration observed throughout the Christian world. However, there are absolutely no verses in the Bible that authorize or endorse the keeping of this tradition.

Further – the Bible does not mention anything about Easter eggs, Easter baskets, Easter bunnies, or even Lent. The author includes convincing evidence to show that these very items were parts of the pagan rituals of the Mystery Religion of ancient Babylon.

Where did the tradition of celebrating Easter originate?

The author exposes the hidden accounts of the original Easter festival which was initiated several thousand years ago – many years before the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus.

Easter – Anunnaki Connections

The name Easter actually comes from Ishtar / Easter who was worshiped as the moon goddess, the goddess of spring and fertility, and the Queen of Heaven. She is known by so many other names in other countries and cultures that she is often referred to as the goddess of one thousand names.

[Inanna is the Sumerian name of Ishtar, and definitely the most important one. Inanna was the granddaughter of Enlil, who in turn was Anu’s son. Anu was the highest ranking Anunnaki and his name translated “Great Sky Father”. Anu was revered as ‘god of the Heavens’ and he was the central figure of mankind’s first religion. According to the Sumerian tablets, he only visited Earth twice].

The Babylonian Connections

(John 8:44, II Corinthians 11:14, 1 Peter 5:8) Ishtar – the Babylonian goddess – is the one for whom Easter is named. Ishtar is but another name for Semiramis – the wife of Nimrod. This post-Flood festival was part of the false religion Mystery Babylon and was started by Nimrod and his wife Semiramis (also known as Ishtar).

They not only instituted the building of the Tower of Babel, they also established themselves as god and goddess to be worshiped by the people of Babylon. They are the co-founders of all the counterfeit religions that have ever existed.

Nimrod was worshiped as the Sun God. He was worshiped in numerous cultures and countries under a variety of names: Samas, Attis, Uti, Merodach/Marduk, Ninus, Bel/BaalMoloch, Tammuz – the list is virtually endless. [He was also known as Dumuzi by the Sumerians and as RA by the Egyptians, as I have detailed in this article].

Millions of people are unknowingly worshiping and praying to this pagan goddess today. What is her present-day name?

The Babylonians celebrated the day of Ishtar / Easter as the return of the goddess of Spring – the re-birth or reincarnation of Nature and the goddess of Nature. Babylonian legend says that each year a huge egg would fall from heaven and would land in the area around the Euphrates River.

[The pope’s ceremonial clothes copy those worn by the ancient priests of Dagon, and not by coincidence. According to the Sumerian tablets, when the Anunnaki god Enki first arrived on Earth, he landed his space ship on water. He later emerged from water wearing his ‘scaly fish-suit’ (astronaut’s suit?). Thousands of years later, the ceremony of the fish god was still celebrated in Akkadia, Assyria and Babylon, by the priests of Dagon… and seemingly it still is today].

In her yearly re-birth, Ishtar would break out of this egg and if any of those celebrating this occasion happened to find her egg, Ishtar would bestow a special blessing on that person. Does this explain the origin of our modern-day tradition of Easter eggs and baskets and Easter egg hunts?

Other pagan rites that were connected with this celebration and which are part of our modern Easter tradition are Easter offerings to the Queen of Heaven (consisting of freshly cut flowers, hot buns decorated with crosses, and star-shaped cakes); new clothes to celebrate this festival (The pagan priests wore new clothes or robes and the Vestal Virgins wore new white dresses or robes and bonnets on their heads.); and sunrise services (to symbolically hasten the yearly arrival of Ishtar’s egg from heaven – the re-incarnation of the spring goddess).

[The Vatican is secretly perpetuating the ancient pagan rituals and the worship of their ancient “gods” – a.k.a. the Anunnaki. The shadow religion of the world’s “elite” is Satanism and all the positions of power are occupied by Satanists].

The Satanic Connections

Easter has its origins in the world of the occult. The Occult / Satanic calender is comprised of four periods of 13 weeks each. Occultists believe that numbers contain inherent power, and many base their lives on numerology. Numerology is also a key component of astrology – another system occultists follow closely. Thus the occult calendar is divided into 4 parts of 13 weeks each. Note that 13 x 4 = 52 weeks – our year.

In the occult system, the number 6 = man, the number 7 = divine perfection or god, and the number 13 = rebellion against authority and depravity. So, in the occult or satanic world, the number 13 represents the state of man’s having reached divine perfection, self-achieved perfection, and illumination.

According to 8th century scholar St. Bede (also known as the Venerable Bede / Bede, the Venerable), the name Easter is derived from the Scandinavian “Ostra” and the Teutonic “Ostern” or “Eastre” – both of whom were goddesses of mythology and were identified with spring and fertility.

Festivals for these goddesses were celebrated on the first day of the vernal equinox – March 21. Important parts of these pagan celebrations included the rabbit, red eggs, and gifts – all of which represented fertility. Easter is steeped in the Mysteries of ancient Babylon – an evil and idolatrous system.

The Satanic Ritual of Sacrificing Children

Every year, the priests of Ishtar would impregnate young virgins on an altar dedicated to herself and her husband*. The children were born on Christmas (!!!), and the next year they were sacrificed in the Easter’s Sunday at the sunrise service. The priests would take Ishtar’s eggs and dye them in the blood of the sacrificed children.

*Inanna’s husband was none other that the infamous god Moloch or Melekh, to whom children were – and still are – sacrificed in Satanic rituals. Satanism is the religious worship of the Anunnaki, and the human and animal sacrifices were/are part of the rituals.

If you’re finding it hard to believe, then here is an excerpt of the Encyclopaedia Judaica, which identifies Ishtar/Inanna and her husband as the gods to whom children were sacrificed:

“(…) The identification of Hadad-Baal with Moloch provides the background to Jeremiah 32:35, which fulminates against the bamot-altars of Baal in the valley of Ben-Hinnom where male and female children were burnt to Moloch, i.e., Baal-Hadad. Furthermore, a series of Assyrian-Aramean documents analyzed by K. Deller showed that Adadmilki or Adadšarru (“Adad the king”) was actually the god to whom children, sometimes firstborn, were burned (see below).

“The Assyrian material sheds new light on II Kings 17 where Adadmelech (to be read instead of Adrammelech) is the god to whom the Sepharvites burn/dedicate their children (verse 31). Adadmelech in this verse stands next to Anammelech who has been correctly related by scholars to Anath who bears the title ‘Queen of Heaven,’ the standard term for Ishtar in Akkadian (šarrat šamê; cf. Sumerian nin.anna.ak = Inanna). The pair Adad and Ishtar, or the ‘king’ and the ‘queen,’ are the ones to whom children are dedicated in the Assyrian-Aramean documents quoted above.” – The Cult of Moloch, Jewish Library;

    “Easter – Anunnaki Connections

    The name Easter actually comes from Ishtar / Easter who was worshiped as the moon goddess, the goddess of spring and fertility, and the Queen of Heaven. She is known by so many other names in other countries and cultures that she is often referred to as the goddess of one thousand names.”

    …I’m sorry but, I don’t by this one.
    Easter comes from Eostre:
    “Ēostre is a goddess of Spring in Germanic paganism. The festival of Easter is named after her. Her colors are pink and green. Eostre is a symbol of rebirth and fertility. Her animal is the hare – which is the origin of the Easter Bunny.”
    https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ēostre

    “Eastre). She was the Great Mother Goddess of the Saxon people in Northern Europe. Similarly, the “Teutonic dawn goddess of fertility [was] known variously as Ostare, Ostara, Ostern, Eostra, Eostre, Eostur, Eastra, Eastur, Austron and Ausos.” 1 Her name was derived from the ancient word for spring: “eastre.”
    http://www.religioustolerance.org/easter1.htm

    In the orthodox tradition – much closer geographically to where Ishtar was worshiped, no remnant of such name could be found, nor bunnies nor baskets. Yes eggs: which is more than logical, in view of the more than a month fasting (no animal products, including milk or eggs!) prior to the Sunday of Resurrection. The orthodox tradition says that during fasting the eggs should be collected and painted in order to be eaten once again once the fast is over as a celebration to the rebirth of life:

    • on the other sight, the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, once again is the translation in the christian theology of an earlier commemoration, the one of the rebirth of the nature and the spring equinox:

      a. in the Mediterranean:

      “Pagan origins of Easter:

      Many, perhaps most, Pagan religions in the Mediterranean area had a major seasonal day of religious celebration at or following the Spring Equinox. Cybele, the Phrygian fertility goddess, had a consort, Attis, who was believed to have been born via a virgin birth. Attis was believed to have died and been resurrected each year during the period MAR-22 to MAR-25.
      “About 200 B.C. mystery cults began to appear in Rome just as they had earlier in Greece. Most notable was the Cybele cult centered on Vatican hill …Associated with the Cybele cult was that of her lover, Attis (the older Tammuz, Osiris, Dionysus, or Orpheus under a new name). He was a god of ever-reviving vegetation. Born of a virgin, he died and was reborn annually. The festival began as a day of blood on Black Friday and culminated after three days in a day of rejoicing over the resurrection.” 3

      Wherever Christian worship of Jesus and Pagan worship of Attis were active in the same geographical area in ancient times, Christians:

      “… used to celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus on the same date; and pagans and Christians used to quarrel bitterly about which of their gods was the true prototype and which the imitation.”

      Many religious historians and liberal theologians believe that the death and resurrection legends were first associated with Attis, many centuries before the birth of Jesus. They were simply grafted onto stories of Jesus’ life in order to make Christian theology more acceptable to Pagans.

      http://www.religioustolerance.org/easter1.htm

      b. in Asia, where the Zoroastrian religion was spread centuries before christianity was born:
      “The first day of Iranian New Year (Nowruz ) is Wednesday, March 21, 2018 – Nowruz is all about saying goodbye to Winter and hello to Spring!
      Nowruz is a rite dating back to at least the 6th century BCE, marking the new year and ushering in spring. Variously known as Novruz, Nowrouz, Nooruz, Navruz, Nauroz or Nevruz, this historic rite is observed on 21 March in many countries along the Silk Roads, including Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, India, Iran, Iraq, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.”

    • thanks maria..maybe some zeitgeist lies are being taken as fact like the ishtar thing?

      • I think somebody is launching that annunaki/osiris/ishtar/baal/etc psychosis on the net with some purpose…I suspect the final goal is to annihilate as much as possible the positive feelings/thoughts of the people with regard to traditionally positive celebrations…I suspect the final goal is to create fear and negativity on as much levels as possible. and we all know that fear creates trauma and learned helplessness. imo.

        • these guys..mixes some great stuff with some bullshit..sort the wheat from the chaff..

          • that was the starting point of my research back then…that movie, and the mixing of truth (revelations for me back then) with propaganda/misleading provoked me to start digging.
            Zeitgeist: a great product of “preventive programming” for the sheeple: admitting the obvious just to program with the desired. imo.

      HISTORY FOR ATHEISTS
      New Atheists Getting History Wrong

      Easter, Ishtar, Eostre and Eggs

      So How About the Goddess Eostre?

      If Easter has nothing to do with Ishtar, what about the claims about it coming from “the pagan goddess Eostre”? We are told that this is the “real” origin of Easter in other memes propagated uncritically by online New Atheists. Apparently she was a “pagan goddess of light and fertility” and a “Spring Goddess” who “breathed life back into the world”. Lots of online sources seem to know a great deal about her and tell us that she was associated with hares and rabbits (“thus the Easter Bunny, see?”) and eggs (“fertility symbols that have nothing to do with silly old Christianity!”). These things are all asserted with the internet’s usually breathless assurance and so it all seems perfectly clear that “Easter” was originally this pagan goddess’ spring fertility festival. Unless you bother to actually check on the sources of all these claims and find this is not clear at all. In fact, it’s actually highly uncertain.

      To begin with, we have the grand total of one reference to any pagan goddess called Eostre, and it’s pretty dubious. It’s actually found in an early medieval Christian work focused on that vexed issue of the calculation of the date of Easter. In 725 AD the prolific English monk and scholar Bede wrote De temporum ratione or “The Reckoning of Time” to help monks calculate Easter, but in the process he detailed various calendrical schemes, gave a potted history of the earth and, thanks to the work’s popularity, helped fix the BC/AD dating scheme as the standard. In his discussion of calendars he gives us the traditional Old English names for the months, with a brief discussion of each. Some of his etymologies seem to refer to the agricultural cycles of the year, such as Weodmonath (August) or “weed month” or Thrimilcemonath (May) “three milkings month” so called because in that month cattle were milked three times a day thanks to lush spring grass. Others refer to pagan practices. Bede says Halgemonath (September) is “Holy Month” because it was a “month of sacred rites”, possibly associated with harvest. And he says two months were named after goddesses – Hrethmonath (March) after Hrêða and Eostremonath (April) after our Eostre:

      “Eostremonath has a name which is now translated Paschal month, and which was once called after a goddess of theirs named Eostre, in whose honour feasts were celebrated in that month. Now they designate that Paschal season by her name, calling the joys of the new rite by the time-honoured name of the old observance.” (Bede, De temporum ratione, XV)

      That would seem to settle it – here is an early medieval source telling us that the month in which Easter (usually) falls was named after a pagan goddess called Eostre, so the festival is pagan. Except things aren’t quite that simple.

      We have no other references to this “Eostre” anywhere in any other source. Our sources of information on early Germanic mythology are scanty and fragmentary, but it is odd for us to have just one reference to a deity and no other indication of their worship: no references to her in other Christian sources, no inscriptions, no charms mentioning her name, no place names indicating her cult sites and no cognates of her name in later Old Norse texts on the Viking gods. Bede was writing in the early eighth century and a couple of generations after England had converted to Christianity. Even then many pagan practices and ideas would still have survived, but how familiar with them a devout monk living in the monastery of Jarrow would have been is not clear. The lack of any other references to this goddess is suspicious and there is a very good chance Bede didn’t have a clue what “Eostremonath” meant and that he invented an “Eostre” goddess to explain the obscure name.

      The month name was not only found in England, however, and the prolific nineteenth century philologist Jakob Grimm (of Grimm’s Fairy Tales fame) noted that in his day some Germans still called April “ostermonat“. He also pointed to the Old High German version of the same month name: “ôstarmânoth” and the recorded Old High German words for two festival days: “ôstartagâ” and “aostortagâ“. He concluded from this that Bede must have been right and that a feast of “Eostre” or “Ostara” must have been held at this time.

      Grimm was very good, however, at finding Germanic gods and festivals in the most fragmentary and obscure of evidence and while the Old High German cognates for the month name and festival days may indicate something pre-Christian, they don’t necessary add up to a goddess. The very cautious modern scholar of all things pagan, Ronald Hutton, accepts that Bede and Grimm may have been right, but we can’t be very sure:

      “[T]he Anglo-Saxon eastre, signifying both the festival and the season of spring, is associated with a set of words in various Indo-European languages,signifying dawn and also goddesses who personified that event, such as the Greek Eos, the Roman Aurora, and the Indian Ushas. It is therefore quite possible to argue that Bede’s Eostre was a German dawn-deity who was venerated at this season of opening and new beginnings. It is equally valid, however, to suggest that the Anglo-Saxon “Estor-monath” simply meant “the month of opening”, or the “month of beginning”, and that Bede mistakenly connected it with a goddess who either never existed at all, or was never associated with a particular season, but merely, like Eos and Aurora, with the Dawn itself.” (Hutton, Stations Of The Sun, p.180)

      The etymology seems to trace back to the Indo-European root “*aus-” meaning “to shine” which in turn is the root for the modern English word “east” and a range of cognates referring to “the dawn”, to “shining” and to the “sun”. So “Eostremonath” could refer to an otherwise totally unattested goddess, a goddess not associated with Easter or it could be a reference to the month when the sun shines again as winter gives way to spring. We simply don’t know.

      • “Easter” is the name only in the anglo-saxon world.

        in the rest of the christian world two other terms are used:
        1. Pasqua (greek, latin, from hebrew “pesach”)
        2. in much of the orthodox world the day of resurrection is called literally “The Great Day”.
        no refference to Eoster or Ishtar whatsoever.

        the world is quite vast, really, certainly not made only of english speaking peoples.

        • “the world is quite vast, really, certainly not made only of english speaking peoples.”

          Yes, which is why etymology (or language) does not equal knowledge. It really is helpful when people know what the other person meant to say, not what their words historically, or their words in another country, or their words in another culture or religion say they mean.

          • I was just arguing that the initial thesis of the article that Easter is called after Ishtar is more than strange, in view of the inexplicable and sudden popping up from nowhere of the term so many kilometres far away from babylonia into the anglo-saxon world with no trace of that on the lands in between. 🙂
            “Easter and the secret worship of the Anunnaki” – personally: lol.

    • http://www.ancient-origins.net/myths-legends/ancient-pagan-origins-easter-001571?nopaging=1

      • “While many of the pagan customs associated with the celebration of Spring were at one stage practised alongside Christian Easter traditions, they eventually came to be absorbed within Christianity, as symbols of the resurrection of Jesus. The First Council of Nicaea (325) established the date of Easter as the first Sunday after the full moon (the Paschal Full Moon) following the March equinox.
        Whether it is observed as a religious holiday commemorating the resurrection of Jesus Christ, or a time for families in the northern hemisphere to enjoy the coming of Spring and celebrate with egg decorating and Easter bunnies, the celebration of Easter still retains the same spirit of rebirth and renewal, as it has for thousands of years.”

  2. How can they worship someone they don’t know exists? Wouldn’t they simply just be partaking in a festival that has a bad origin?

    If I reversed it would a satanist be worshiping God is he said “goodbye” since it is a contracted form of “God be with you”?

    Can everything that everyone does only be seen in its origin?

    If so no one on Earth can be anything but Christian and at the same time, no one would be given the daily uses of historical Christian and pagan culture.

    • How can they worship someone they don’t know exists? 🙂

      • A person has to know what their faith is in. It is not faith in faith. It is faith in Jesus Christ.

    • Lander7, “Wouldn’t they simply just be partaking in a festival that has a bad origin?”

      yes. There does have to be another consideration, too. Man fell into sin at the Fall (Genesis 3). What that means is man stopped worshipping God and worshipped the creature (Romans 1:25). Man no longer worshipping God knows not God and His ways. How does a person know about God? God revealed Himself. Where? God’s revelation of Himself was given in history and is now written called the Bible. What happens when a person knows about God His revelation of Himself? Some do not repent and believe in Him. Some do repent and believe in Him. When a person repents, what that means is: they turn to God. The definition of repentance is “turn to God; change of mind”. They believe in Him, and thus, turn to Him. Faith (believing) and repentance (turn to God) happen at the same time. When a person turns to God and believe (trust; faith) in Him, then they come to know who God is and all of His ways the way God revealed Himself and His ways, which Him and His ways are now written in what is called the Bible. So how does a person worship God? God instructs them, because they knew Him not, but now that they have repented and believe in Him they follow Him and all of His ways. God instructs believers in the Bible how to worship Him.

      So the question is not about origin. God is first, so pagan ways are not the origin of anything. The question is: Does God instruct people to worship Him in the way of Easter? I do not read the instructions of the celebration of Easter in the Bible, so we are not to worship God by an Easter celebration.

  3. Relief with Phanes, ca. 2nd century A.D.
    Modena, Galleria Estense, inv. 2676
    The first bestower of life in the universe, Phanes emerged from the cosmic egg at the beginning of time. For the adepts of Orphism he represents a new era of salvation: the band of the zodiac symbolises eternal time, while the serpent entwined around it represents the rapid course of human time.

    The Ancient Pagan Origins of Easter

    A related perspective is that, rather than being a representation of the story of Ishtar, Easter was originally a celebration of Eostre, goddess of Spring, otherwise known as Ostara, Austra, and Eastre. One of the most revered aspects of Ostara for both ancient and modern observers is a spirit of renewal.

    Most historians, including Biblical scholars, agree that Easter was originally a pagan festival. According to the New Unger’s Bible Dictionary says: “The word Easter is of Saxon origin, Eastra, the goddess of spring, in whose honour sacrifices were offered about Passover time each year. By the eighth century Anglo–Saxons had adopted the name to designate the celebration of Christ’s resurrection.” However, even among those who maintain that Easter has pagan roots, there is some disagreement over which pagan tradition the festival emerged from. Here we will explore some of those perspectives.

    The origins of Easter customs
    The most widely-practiced customs on Easter Sunday relate to the symbol of the rabbit (‘Easter bunny’) and the egg. As outlined previously, the rabbit was a symbol associated with Eostre, representing the beginning of Springtime. Likewise, the egg has come to represent Spring, fertility and renewal. In Germanic mythology, it is said that Ostara healed a wounded bird she found in the woods by changing it into a hare. Still partially a bird, the hare showed its gratitude to the goddess by laying eggs as gifts.
    The Encyclopedia Britannica clearly explains the pagan traditions associated with the egg: “The egg as a symbol of fertility and of renewed life goes back to the ancient Egyptians and Persians, who had also the custom of colouring and eating eggs during their spring festival.” In ancient Egypt, an egg symbolised the sun, while for the Babylonians, the egg represents the hatching of the Venus Ishtar, who fell from heaven to the Euphrates.
