WHAT'S WRONG WITH VALENTINE'S DAY?

SCRIPTURES

 

  • Ex. 20:3 You shall have no other gods before or besides me. You shall not make yourself any graven image (cupids are graven images)--to worship it--, or any likeness of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down yourself to them or serve them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.
  • Exodus 20:6. But showing mercy and steadfast love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

HISTORY OF VALENTINE

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Valentine's Day came about this way.

As far back as 296 B.C. according to World Book Encyclopedia, there was worship of the god Pan, also called Faunus and Lupercus. The rites were centered at Lupercal, a cave in the Palatine Hill. Priests sacrificed goats and cut their skins into strips for lashes. Then they ran around the Palatine Hill striking all the women they met. These ceremonies also involved purification through sacrifice of a dog. (Aren't Christians purified by the blood of JESUS?) In 496 A.D. Pope Gelasius changed this ceremonial rite from February 15 to February 14 and called it St. Valentine's Day instead.

 

Britannica says Eros or Cupid is the god of sexual passion, son of Aphrodite and Zeus. Chief gods associated with Eros and Pathos are Himeros (longing and desire), and Peitho (persuasion). Athenians changed him from goat man to fat youth with bow and arrow.

 

Deut. 32:16-17, I Cor.18-21. Compare these two scriptures and notice that God has not changed at all in his opinion of what constitutes devil worship. Ezekiel 8:14. Then he brought me to the entrance of the north gate of the Lord's house, and behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz. (According to Ezekiel, the Spirit of God called this an abomination to God. He also called Tammuz an idol.) Jer. 7:16-18. God told Jeremiah not to pray for people of Judah because the children gather wood, the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead dough to make cakes for the queen of Heaven. They pour out drink offerings to other gods; they provoke me to anger!

According to "The Two Babylons", page 5, Semiramis is mother of gods; page 21, mother of Tammuz; and pages 62-63, Tammuz is Nimrod (see Gen. 10:8-11). When traced back, 

Valentine's Day is the worship of Semiramis and Tammuz-Nimrod.

 

Can you as a Christian promote this day or bring children under its curses?

 

II Cor. 6:14. Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers-do not make mismatched alliances with them, or come under a different yoke with them (inconsistent with your faith). For what partnership hath right living and right standing with God with iniquity and lawlessness? Or how can light fellowship with darkness?

 

II Cor. 6:15. What agreement (can there be between) a temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God; even as God hath said, I will dwell in and with and among them, and will walk in and with and among them, and I will be their God and they shall be my people

(see Ex. 25:8; 29:45, Lev. 26:12, Ezek. 37:27 and Jer.31:1).

 

II Cor. 6:17. So come out from among them (unbelievers), and separate (sever) yourselves from them, says the Lord, and touch not (any) unclean thing; then I will receive you kindly and treat you with favor (see Isa. 52:11).

 

II Cor. 6:18. And I will be a father to you, and you shall be my sons and daughters says the Lord Almighty (see Hos. 1:10 and Isa. 43:6)

 

God showed me some years back that to serve a god meant to work and plan for him. That every time I spent time and money on this day, I worshiped these gods and denied JESUS.

How could I ask God to bless me when I have just risen up from idol worship (see Joshua 23:6-16 and 24:20)? I'd like to propose a few questions to you:

 

Since Nimrod worship is Baal worship, and Baal worship required child sacrifice, could it be possible that by serving gods like Lupercus, Baal and Saturn, we have brought the Biblical curses upon our families and our nation such as abortion, child abuse, homosexuality, unprovoked murders, financial loss, etc?
