The Roman Catholic Church had plans aimed at amalgamating paganism and Christianity together and the two eventually got married. This mission was achieved by the skillful adjustments and changing of times and seasons and faking one or two scriptures with carnal interpretations to seal up their mischievous acts. Despite the complicated measures they cleverly made adjustments to the calendar and found no difficulty in tying up paganism and Christianity plunging them into the pit of idolatry. The Roman church replaced Passover with Easter and moved the pagan feast of Tammuz from June to early spring; ‘Christianizing’ it lent season as a solemn religious season that must be kept by all believers. All this is abomination before the Lord. Abomination masked as Christianity: The scripture in 1 Corinthian14:33 stated that God is not the author of confusion. For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. 1 Corinthians 14:33KJV Nowhere in the scriptures has God instituted Lent, a pagan observance as a practice for His people. Our Lord Jesus Christ commands His people to follow His footsteps and not the traditions of men. In Isaiah 55:8-9 the scripture reveals the mind of God. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9KJV The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings Jeremiah 17:9-11KJV The scriptures in Jeremiah 10:23 revealed the way of man: O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps. O LORD, correct me, but with judgment; not in thine anger, lest thou bring me to nothing. Pour out thy fury upon the heathen that know thee not, and upon the families that call not on thy name: for they have eaten up Jacob, and devoured him, and consumed him, and have made his habitation desolate. Jeremiah 10:23-25KJV God created us a tripartite nature and made within our spirit man one of the centers called communion where we can worship and communicate with Him in the spirit. We cannot worship Him the way we should because man is fleshy, so God offered us His Spirit to be resident in our spirit to help and show us how to worship Him in spirit and in truth. It is written in John 4:24 that God is a Spirit and those who worship Him must do so in spirit and in truth. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. John 4:23-24KJV Man is a soul and he is expected to feed his soul with the undiluted Word of God. He is meant to live by it. The natural food can temporally satisfy the body but does not satisfy the desires of the soul. This is revealed by our Lord Jesus Christ in Matthew 4:4. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Matt 4:4KJV The scripture in Psalms 119:89 also revealed that the Word of God is settled in Heaven. For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven. Ps 119:89KJV Jesus Christ made a statement vital to our yearning for Him in John 10:35. If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; John 10:35KJV God from generation to generation commanded His people not to be entangled with the traditions and customs of the Pagans of this world yet in disobedience even those called by His name take pleasure in joining in these abominable practices. The scripture in 2corinthians 6:14-18 states: Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. 2 Corinthians 6:14-18KJV Similarly God gave a stern warning in a related scripture in Revelation 18:2-4 to His people seeing that all the denominational Churches have turned out to become Babylonian in nature and design. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. Rev 18:2-4KJV Lent may seem like a very sincere and earnest religious observance in the eyes of the world but God has revealed several times through His servants that it is deeply rooted in Paganism and He hates all pagan observances. The Lord said: ‘How long shall we provoke Him to jealousy.’ When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou; And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them: Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son. For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly. But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire. For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth. Deut 7:1-6KJV

God has cried again to this wicked generation and to you in particular to stop these pagan observances called LENT, ASH WEDNESDAY and EASTER. We should arise and take our breakfast, lunch and dinner to give our body the required nutrients to keep it spiritually and physically healthy, sanctified and consecrated for God’s service. We should not destroy our body through fasting. Many have fasted and died. Many have fasted and developed complications that distorted the normal functioning of their bodies. The scripture has said that we should glorify God in our spirit and body which are God’s property. Let us go over to the issue of Fasting and Retreats TO BE CONTINUED.
