Pagan Birthdays

The Most High God told Jeremiah to tell the children of Israel not to follow after the customs and traditions of the Gentiles/Heathen/Nations, but we as a people are stiff necked and hard headed:

Jeremiah 10:2-3 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen…
3 For the customs of the people are vain:

John 4:22-24  Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
23  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.
24  God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

 

Genesis 40:19-22 Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thy head from off thee, and shall hang thee on a tree; and the birds shall eat thy flesh from off thee.
20 And it came to pass the third day, which was Pharaoh’s birthday, that he made a feast unto all his servants: and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants.
21 And he restored the chief butler unto his butlership again; and he gave the cup into Pharaoh’s hand:
22 But he hanged the chief baker: as Joseph had interpreted to them.

(In Genesis chapter 40 we read that doing the time of Pharaohs birthday he killed the Chief Baker. This is some type of blood sacrifice.)

Matthew 14:6-11 But when Herod’s birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod.
7 Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask.
8 And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John Baptist’s head in a charger.
9 And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the oath’s sake, and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded it to be given her.
10 And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.
11 And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the damsel: and she brought it to her mother.

(Here we read another king had killed a man on his birthday, but this time it was a prophet and that was John the Baptist.)

 

The Works Of Flavius Josephus Concerning Birthdays

Nay, indeed, the law does not permit us to make festivals at the births of our children.”  – Flavius Josephus, Against Apion, Book II, section 26(Flavius Josephus tells us that it was against the Most High God’s law for his people to follow and keep

 

Job Curses His Own Birthday

Job 3:1-6 After this opened Job his mouth, and cursed his day.
2 And Job spake, and said,
3  Let the day perish wherein I was born, and the night in which it was said, There is a man child conceived.
Let that day be darkness; let not God regard it from above, neither let the light shine upon it.
5  Let darkness and the shadow of death stain it; let a cloud dwell upon it; let the blackness of the day terrify it.
6  As for that night, let darkness seize upon it; let it not be joined unto the days of the year, let it not come into the number of the months.Cursed – To wish or invoke evil, calamity, injury, or destruction upon.
Perish – To be destroyed or die, esp in an untimely way.

(We read in Job chapter 3 verse 1 that Job cursed his born day/Birthday. This should allow us to know that we shouldn’t be celebrating our birthdays.)

 

King Solomon Tells Us That A Mans Death Is Better Than The Day He Was Born

Ecclesiastes 7:1  A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one’s birth.

Precept to Ecclesiastes 7:1:
Philippians 1:23  For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:

Revelation 14:13  And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

(King Solomon tells us that a mans death is better that one’s birth. This should let us know that your birthday is worthless in the eyesight of the Most High YAH.)
