I was born a Seventh-day Adventist, and for my 40 years in the church, it never celebrated Christmas and Easter. The following link is an advertisement by Southern University giving away free tickets to their Easter celebration. Notice how they attempt to deceive by using the word Sonrise rather than Sunrise. Just as Catholicism added pagan customs to their venu in order to attract converts, now sister-to-fallen-Babylon Seventh-day Adventism is doing the same thing.

“We must as a people arouse and cleanse the camp of Israel. Licentiousness, unlawful intimacy, and unholy practices are coming in among us in a large degree...We are in danger of becoming a sister to fallen Babylon, of allowing our churches to become corrupted and filled with every foul spirit, a cage for every unclean and hateful bird, and will we be clear unless we make decided movements to cure the existing evil?” {E. G. White, Manuscript Releases No. 449, pp. 17, 18.}

The following statement is from this link:


“In the early church the birth of Christ was not celebrated, only his death, burial and resurrection. Christmas was first a pagan holiday called the Winter Solstice which honored the birth of the sun-god on December 25th. Easter, the date in spring when we celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, was first celebrated by the third century Christians as Pesach or the Passover. Although not an apostolic institution, Pesach was observed by many professing Christians. Pesach was not idolatrous nor was it preceded by Lent. Lent, or the 40 days of abstinence before Easter, was directly borrowed from the worship of Ishtar, the licentious Assyrian goddess of love. Her fertility was represented by a decorated egg called the "Ishtar egg." Tammuz, her husband who was the Assyrian form of the pagan Nimrod who founded Babylon, was judicially put to death in the spring of the year for a great offense committed against the gods. Ishtar mourned his death for 40 days. This pagan ritual when adopted by the church at the Council of Aurelea (ph) in 519 AD, reversed the period of 40 days of mourning to precede the commemorated date of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. In England, Lent was celebrated in March and April, the end of which is Easter. Easter is the English name for the pagan and licentious goddess Ishtar.”


Implications for Adventists Celebrating the Pagan Licentious Goddess Ishtar


The Freemasons formed the World Council of Churches and its subsidiaries, the National Councils and the local Ministerial Associations. Through these venues, they  have infiltrated all Christian churches with the ultimate objective of perverting them by admixing the teachings of pagans to finally arrive at a one world “homogenized” religion that accommodates all the religions of the world. By celebrating Christmas and Easter, Adventists are aiding and abetting this attempt by Satan to replace the sacred with the profane.


Dumb Adventists will opine that they are not sitting around weeping for Tammuz! That is not the point! The point is that in celebrating Easter, Adventists are aiding Luciferian worshippers who are attempting to produce a one world religion that is Satan’s attempt to satisfy everyone, while perverting the pure Christian religion.


Ezekiel 8 gives the reasons why Ezekiel 9 will be literally fulfilled again, this time in the SDA church, to wit:


It is just as bad to patronize and support those who weep for Tammuz, as it is to actually weep for him yourself!

"Study the 9th chapter of Ezekiel. These words will be literally fulfilled yet the time is passing, and the people are asleep. They refuse to humble their souls and to be converted. Not a great while longer will the Lord bear with the people who have such great and important truths revealed to them, but who refuse to bring these truths into their individual experience. The time is short. God is calling will YOU hear? Will YOU receive His message? Will YOU be converted before it is too late? Soon, very soon, every case will be decided for eternity. Letter 106, 1909, pp. 2, 3, 5, 7. (To "The churches in Oakland and Berkeley, September 26, 1909.)" E. G. White Manuscript Releases Volume One, p. 260.


“The time will soon come when the prophecy of Ezekiel 9 will be fulfilled; that prophecy should be carefully studied, for it will be fulfilled to the very letter.”— Ellen G. White 1888 Materials, p. 1303.

Ellen White said it all in the following statement:

Says Howard Crosby: “The church of God is today courting the world. Its members are trying to bring it down to the level of the ungodly. The ball, the theater, nude and lewd art, social luxuries with all their loose moralities, are making inroads into the sacred inclosure of the church; and as a satisfaction for all this worldliness, Christians are making a great deal of Lent and Easter and church ornamentation. It is the old trick of Satan. The Jewish church struck on that rock; the Romish church was wrecked on the same; and the Protestant is fast reaching the same doom. {GC88

Just like the deceptiveness involved in the adoption of the Trinity Doctrine, SDA leaders have done the same thing with Easter. Ellen White never endorsed Easter. But look what SDA leaders have done in their compilation book of Ellen White’s statements, entitled The Upward Look. The article does not use the word Easter, but the leaders insidiously inserted the word Easter in the title as follows:

Insights into the Easter Story, September 6

The Upward Look, p. 263.1 (EGW)


“Behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done. Matthew 28:11. {UL 263.1}

The angels of the Lord excel in strength. One angel appeared before the Roman guard appointed to watch Christ’s tomb and caused them to fear and quake and to become as powerless as dead men. Yet the whole scene was forever stamped on their minds. A mighty angel with exceeding great glory descended from the heavens to the earthly sepulcher, and laying hold on the sealed stone, removed it as he would a pebble. Then the mighty angel, with a voice that caused the earth to quake, was heard to say, “Jesus, Thou Son of God, Thy Father calls Thee.” Then He who had earned the power to conquer death and the grave came forth, and proclaimed over the rent sepulcher of Joseph, “I am the resurrection and the life.”{UL 263.2}

The soldiers hastened to the priests, and with quaking hearts told them what had happened. The faces of the priests were as those of the dead. Caiaphas tried to speak. His lips moved, but they uttered no sound. The soldiers were about to leave the council room when a voice stayed them. Caiaphas had at last found speech. “Wait, wait,” he said. “Tell no one the things you have seen.”{UL 263.3}

ATO 261.3 (Español (Spanish))

LVH 255.3 (Français (French))

A lying report was given to the soldiers. “Say ye,” said the priests, “his disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept” (Matthew 28:13). The soldiers sold their integrity for money. They came in before the priests burdened with a most startling message of truth; they went out with a burden of money and on their tongues a lying report which had been framed for them by the priests.{UL 263.4}

ATO 261.3 (Español (Spanish))

LVH 255.4 (Français (French))


The lying report was spread far and near. But there were witnesses to Christ’s resurrection whom the priests could not silence. Certain of the dead who came forth with Christ appeared to many and declared that He had risen. And Christ Himself remained with His disciples for forty days after He rose from the dead, and before His ascension [He] gave them their commission, bidding them go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.{UL 263.5}

ATO 261.4 (Español (Spanish))

LVH 255.5 (Français (French))


In this age, a time of satanic wonders, everything conceivable will be said and done to deceive if possible the very elect. Let believers say nothing to extol Satan’s power. The Lord will distinguish His commandment-keeping people with signal marks of His favor, if they will be molded and fashioned by His Spirit, and built up in the most holy faith, hearkening strictly to the voice of His Word.”—Letter 195, September 6, 1903, to W. C. White.{UL 263.6}
