How much does Yahuah like them?
The history of how birthdays came to be celebrated reveals everything we need to know about the custom. Much of what we learn from “the world” has its roots in Babel (Babylon). The Mazzaroth (host of heaven, sun, moon, and stars) are the source of all sorcery. The annual day of one’s birth is celebrated due to this influence.
Long ago, the average person NEVER paid any attention whatsoever to the anniversary of their birth. The initial pattern that developed concerned the celebrating of the birthday of their deity, once each year, at the winter solstice. This is the origin of Christmas, since the winter solstice was considered the “re-birth” or “birthday” of the solar deity (Natalis Sol Invictus, or the Nativity of Sol, the unconquerable). This alone marks the behavior as originating from the rebellion against Yahuah, Who is the one and only Elohim of Heaven and Earth.
Remember that Yahuah commanded that WE NOT LEARN the ways of the heathen (Dt. 12). Later, people began to celebrate the annual birth of their king at the same time as their deity, aligning their ruler with the same honors given to their deity. In their minds, their ruler became an anthropomorphic version of their deity. In the east, average people slowly began to celebrate their personal “birth day” once each year on what they believed to be “new year’s day”. Eventually, people developed the custom of observing their personal birthday on the annual day they were actually born.
Now, let’s consider the cakes and cones:
IS THERE A CONNECTION WE HAVEN’T BEEN MAKING HERE?
BIRTHDAY CAKE CUSTOM = TEACHING CHILDREN WITCHCRAFT?
Worldwide, baking cakes for the “Queen of Heaven” (Asherah) was entangled in birth day celebrations (Jer./YermeYahu 7:18). This provokes Yahuah’s anger. By blowing-out candles and making a “secret wish”, the celebrant performs IDOLATRY, because the “wish” is to their GENIE or JINN, a spell performed by Wiccans (you know, witchcraft). The candles are part of the fire ritual; Pagans believed the solar presence to be fire. The rising smoke of the extinguished candles carried the “secret wish” into the skies. How do you think Yahuah likes it when we teach our children to do these things, or propagate the custom of them? How about if we “think” of the “wish” being a prayer to Yahuah? This is not going to be acceptable to Yahuah, no matter how we wrap it in our minds.
Worshipping Yahuah in a Pagan format is the main problem we have today. We desperately need eye-salve to see better. Open your eyes, and even the little party hat can be better understood.
All these things are, in fact, witchcraft. Knowledge is increasing, so Satan’s “tricks” (wiles) are no longer secrets.
CONE OF POWER — The Llewellyn Encyclopedia tells us:
“In the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn this was described as a ‘vortex of energy’ and was built up via circumambulation.”
The cone of power is the name given to the union of witches’ forces gathered around the circle, aimed at a common goal. In parts of ancient Syria, the cone was a symbol of Astarte (Asherah).
BIRTHDAYS FOUND IN SCRIPTURE (IN EACH CASE THERE WERE DEATHS)
Fast forwarding to the present day, we know that witches esteem Asherah very highly. THE MOST IMPORTANT DAY for any witch is the day of THEIR BIRTH. In Scripture, individuals recognizing birth days are Pagans, or those in rebellion. Look at the following verses describing the 7 sons and 3 daughters of Iyob, contrasted between the NIV and the KJV, then noting the literal meaning in the NAS version:
Job 1:4-5 (NIV): “His sons used to take turns holding feasts in their homes, and they would invite their three sisters to eat and drink with them. When a period of feasting had run its course, Job would send and have them purified. Early in the morning he would sacrifice a burnt offering for each of them, thinking, ‘Perhaps my children have sinned and cursed (Elohim) in their hearts.’ This was Job’s regular custom.”
Job 1:4 (KJV): “And his sons went and feasted in their houses, every one HIS day; and sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them.”
Job 1:4-5 (NAS): “And his sons used to go and hold a feast in the house of each one on HIS day, and they would send and invite their three sisters to eat and drink with them.”
It’s hardly a mystery, and very simple for us to figure out what was going on here. Also, you’ll find that the only mentioning of birthdays being celebrated in all of Scripture involves men in rebellion against Yahuah:
Gen 40:20: “Now the third day was Pharaoh’s birthday, and he gave a feast for all his officials.”
Mark 6:21: “On his birthday Herod gave a banquet for his high officials and military commanders and the leading men of Galilee.” These were REBELLIOUS men.
I acknowledge that there is no direct Torah prohibition against a person observing their “birthday”. [But we are commanded NOT to learn the ways of the heathen/gentiles.] However, the origin [root] of the practice (Paganism) is why it is idolatrous. If witches hold the day to be important (while Scripture is silent about the day of ones birth being important), and the historical development of birthday celebrations comes from Pagan origins, THEN WE SHOULD HAVE NO PARTICIPATION WHATSOEVER IN THEM.
We should not encourage it by sending cards or gifts. Many ask about this topic, since Scripture doesn’t “specifically” condemn the observance of birthdays. But, Scripture doesn’t specifically tell us not to observe “Sun day”, Christmas, Halloween, or Easter either. THE FACT THAT A BEHAVIOR HAS A PAGAN ORIGIN IS OUR CUE NOT TO PERFORM IT. We are not to learn their ways:
Deut 12:29-31: “But when you have driven them out and settled in their land, and after they have been destroyed before you, be careful not to be ensnared by inquiring about their (elohim), saying, ‘How do these nations serve their (elohim)? We will do the same.’ You must not worship (Yahuah) your (Elohim) in their way, because in worshiping their (elohim), they do all kinds of detestable things (Yahuah) hates.”
Deut 12:32: “See that you do all I command you; do not add to it or take away from it.”
Our hearts are inclined (bent) to do what seems right in our own eyes, especially when we’re programmed by the popular culture around us.
Prov 12:15: “The way of a fool seems right to him, but a wise man listens to advice.”
Prov 14:12: “There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.”
Satan disguises himself and devises schemes to deceive. If you seek wisdom, get TORAH.
Evolutionists believe that if enough TIME goes by, then the universe will develop life, then life over time will transform itself into diverse forms. Those who seek to excuse formerly Pagan behavior seem to believe that things “change” into other things too, given enough TIME. Perhaps our Creator, Yahuah, will forget the origins, and look at our new reasons, and accept it – oops, but then there’s that golden calf incident to remember . . . .
