Observing A New Year, In The Dead Of Winter, Is A Relatively New & Ridiculous Thing. Let’s Go Back To The Way Things Were.

Is it ridiculous to observe the ending of one year with the celebration of a new year? No, of course not. It’s good to be thankful and rejoice about making it through a year, and to give praise for another year of life. So what was I getting to in the title? The time of year… to celebrate a newness, a renewal of a year, in the dead and darkest part, is ridiculous, especially when the world previously understood the renewal of spring before shifting to the middle of winter. If this is news to you, you might be wondering “what is he talking about now!?” Well, we are closing out the “Season of The Witch”, remember how things kicked when people had full bellies thanks to Thanksgiving massacre food, and then Halloween/Samhain, then the witching season amped up things during Christmas/Yule/Saturnalia? Well, New Year’s Eve & Day is the culmination of the Season of The Witch. It’s a festival which may seem disconnected from its pagan gods, but the origin matters, as do the rituals and practice are still kept today. So how is it the winter’s New Year in opposition to The Most High YAH and His instruction/Torah?:

But as I always say “Don’t believe me”, don’t believe the memes either, look it up for yourself. Check the Scriptures and the pagan history referenced above, for yourself. As you do, allow me to provide you with more jumpstart information, courtesy of Encyclopaedia Britannica:

New Year festival, any of the social, cultural, and religious observances worldwide that celebrate the beginning of the new year. Such festivals are among the oldest and the most universally observed. The earliest known record of a New Year festival dates from about 2000 BCE in Mesopotamia, where in Babylonia the new year (Akitu) began with the new moon after the SPRING equinox (mid-March) and in Assyria with the new moon nearest the autumn equinox (mid-September). For the Egyptians, Phoenicians, and Persians the year began with the autumn equinox (September 21), and for the early Greeks it began with the winter solstice (December 21). On the Roman republican calendar the year began on March 1, BUT after 153 BCE the official date was January 1, which was continued in the Julian calendar of 46 BCE.”


So, Spring not only signaled the new year for the Mesopotamians in Babylon, but it also was the same for the early Romans, until the switch up… let’s continue the review:

“In early medieval times most of Christian Europe regarded March 25, the Feast of the Annunciation, AS THE BEGINNING OF THE NEW YEAR, ALTHOUGH New Year’s Day was observed on December 25 in Anglo-Saxon England. William the Conqueror decreed that the year begin on January 1, but England later joined the rest of Christendom and ADOPTED March 25. The Gregorian calendar, ADOPTED in 1582 by the Roman Catholic Church, RESTORED January 1 as New Year’s Day, and most European countries gradually followed suit: Scotland, in 1660; Germany and Denmark, about 1700; England, in 1752; and Russia, in 1918.”


And now today, just as “most European countries gradually followed suit”, most of the other countries of the world followed suit in their observation of the New Year on January 1st.

“Those religions and cultures using a lunar calendar have continued to observe the beginning of the year on days other than January 1. In the Jewish religious calendar, for example, the year begins on Rosh Hashana, the first day of the month of Tishri, which falls between September 6 and October 5.


Now, hopefully, you remember the Bible verses we looked at before we started reading the Brittanica quotes… because then we can see the twisting above. Did you see how it said that the “Jewish religious calendar” year begins with Rosh Hashana in the Autumn months? That right there, is another proof which shows how Jewish customs & traditions do not follow nor obey The Most High YAH & His Word/Instruction/Torah, but they instead follow the Talmud, which works in opposition to YAH’s Torah. How exactly is it proven again? By comparing Jewish customs & traditions to the Word & Commandments of The Most High YAH. Test the verses listed below:

Since we Israelites, are not pagan heathens, let us not walk in the ways of the heathen. Let the heathen heath! Let the heathen celebrate their pagan gods! Let us obey & celebrate YAH our ELOHIM as the Bible instructs! We do not need to appropriate their customs, practices, and religions any longer, now is the time for us to know and tell our people what it means to be YAH’s chosen nation.

Following heathens in their worship of their pagan gods & idols is what got us in trouble in the first place. Our idolatry, is what keeps YAH’s curses (which are detailed in Deuteronomy 28), upon us as a people, as Scattered Israel. Let us heed the Word of YAH! Let us repent/turn away from sin, and let us encourage the rest of our people to do the same. Remember this:

“Shout with the voice of a trumpet blast. Shout aloud! Don’t be timid. Tell MY people Israel of their sins!”

Isaiah‬ ‭58‬:‭1‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“Therefore, Jeremiah, go and warn all Judah and Jerusalem. Say to THEM, ‘This is what the Lord (YAH) says: I am planning disaster for you instead of good. So turn from your evil ways (repent), each of you, and do what is right.’” But the people replied, “Don’t waste your breath. We will continue to live as we want to, stubbornly following our own evil desires.” So this is what YAH says: “Has anyone ever heard of such a thing, even among the pagan nations? MY virgin daughter Israel has done something terrible! Does the snow ever disappear from the mountaintops of Lebanon? Do the cold streams flowing from those distant mountains ever run dry? But MY people are not so reliable, for they have deserted ME; they burn incense to worthless idols. They have stumbled off the ancient highways and walk in muddy paths. Therefore, their land will become desolate, a monument to their stupidity. All who pass by will be astonished and will shake their heads in amazement. I will scatter MY PEOPLE before their enemies as the east wind scatters dust. And in all their trouble I will turn my back on them and refuse to notice their distress.”‭‭

Jeremiah‬ ‭18‬:‭11‬-‭17‬ ‭NLT‬‬

We were scattered for disobeying YAH, thinking that we can serve Him while following the way of the heathens. Our ancestors thought they could be YAH’s people while honoring & serving like pagans. Let us have nothing to do with paganism, everything from pagan: idols, worship, and festivals because — WE AIN’T PAGANS… it’s not our culture fam!

“So fear the Lord (YAH) and serve Him wholeheartedly. Put away forever the idols your ancestors worshiped when they lived beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt. Serve YAH ALONE. But if you refuse to serve YAH, then choose today whom you will serve. Would you prefer the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates? Or will it be the gods of the Amorites in whose land you now live (or for us in American, the European gods)? But as for me and my family, we will serve YAH.” The people replied, “We would never abandon YAH and serve other gods. For YAH our God (Elohim) is THE ONE who rescued us and our ancestors from slavery in the land of Egypt. He performed mighty miracles before our very eyes. As we traveled through the wilderness among our enemies, he preserved us. It was YAH who drove out the Amorites and the other nations living here in the land. So we, too, will serve YAH, for HE alone is our ELOHIM.” Then Joshua warned the people, “You are not able to serve YAH, for HE is a holy and jealous ELOHIM. He will NOT forgive your rebellion and your sins. IF you abandon YAH and serve other gods, HE will turn against you and destroy you, even though HE has been so good to you.” But the people answered Joshua, “No, we will serve YAH!” “You are a witness to your own decision,” Joshua said. “You have chosen to serve YAH.” “Yes,” they replied, “we are witnesses to what we have said.” “All right then,” Joshua said, “destroy the idols among you, and turn your hearts to YAH, the ELOHIM of Israel.” The people said to Joshua, “We will serve YAH our ELOHIM. We will obey HIM ALONE.” So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day at Shechem, committing them to follow the decrees and regulations of YAH. Joshua recorded these things in the Book of ELOHIM’s Instructions (Torah). As a reminder of their agreement, he took a huge stone and rolled it beneath the terebinth tree beside the Tabernacle of YAH. Joshua said to all the people, “This stone has heard everything YAH said to us. It will be a witness to testify against you if you go back on your word to ELOHIM.””

Joshua‬ ‭24‬:‭14‬-‭27‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Follow, obey, worship, honor, celebrate YAH our ELOHIM, and let the pagans do their thing, celebrating their gods, Janus’ New Year, is their thang… let us do our thang—as for me and mine, we will serve YAH!

This ain’t our New Year’s, this ain’t our two-faced god… Heathen paganism ain’t our culture fam!

Until next time, shalom ✌🏾
