Long ago, the average person never paid any attention whatsoever to the
anniversary of their birth. The initial pattern that developed concerned the
celebrating of the birthday of their deity, once each year, at the winter solstice.
This is the origin of Christmas, since the winter solstice was considered the "re-birth"
or "birthday" of the solar deity (Natalis Sol Invictus, or the Nativity of Sol, the
unconquerable). This alone marks the behavior as originating from the rebellion
against YHVH, Who is the one and only Elohim of Heaven and Earth. Remember
that YHVH commanded that we not learn the ways of the heathen (Dt. 12). Later,
people began to celebrate the annual birth of their king at the same time as their
deity, aligning their ruler with the same honors given to their deity. In their minds,
their ruler became an anthropomorphic version of their deity. In the east, average
people slowly began to celebrate their personal "birth day" once each year on what
they believed to be "new year's day". Eventually, people developed the custom of
observing their personal birth day on the annual day they were actually born.
Now, let's consider the cakes and cones:
IS THERE A CONNECTION WE HAVEN'T BEEN MAKING HERE?
- TEACHING CHILDREN WITCHCRAFT?
Worldwide, baking cakes for the "Queen of Heaven"
(Asherah) was entangled in birth day celebrations
(Jer./YermeYahu 7:18). This provokes YHVH's
anger. By blowing-out candles and making a "secret
wish", the celebrant performs IDOLATRY, because the
"wish" is to their GENIE or JINN, a spell performed by
Wiccans (you know, witchcraft). The candles are part
of the fire ritual; Pagans believed the solar presence to
be fire. The rising smoke of the extinguished candles
carried the "secret wish" into
