#NIMROD (Baal) and #ASHTORETH (Queen of Heaven). The #Greek #called #Lupercus by the name of "#Pan"(in bottom left picture/4thSlide), the Semites called Pan "Baal". Baal which is mentioned several times in the bible, is merely another name for Nimrod "the mighty hunter" (Genesis 10:8-9). Another name for Nimrod was #Cupid. #Nimrod #was the original #Lupercus valentines day was called Lupercalia, and we know that Nimrod was a mighty man who built great cities, including #Babel (tower of babel bottom right pic) (Genesis 10:10). Not only was Nimrod the ruler of Babel, but he was also the #high #priest of a #satanic #occult. When Nimrod finally died, the Babylonian mystery religion continued on through his wife, Queen Semiramis. Upon Nimrod's death, she deified him as the #Sungod. In various cultures he later became known as Baal, the Great Life Giver, the god of fire, Baalim, Bel, and Molech.

#InformationOnTammuz⬇️
In the Babylonian tongue the word heart was pronounced "Bal", In the depictions of Tammuz the heart shaped fruit of Persea was often found in his hand. Thus Tammuz became known as the god of the heart.

#MoreInformationOnCupid⬇️
Now notice the name #Cupid. It comes from the Latin verb cupere, meaning “to desire.” Cupid was the son of Venus, Roman goddess of beauty and love. Also known as Eros in ancient Greece, he was the son of Aphrodite. According to myth, he was responsible for impregnating numerous goddesses and mortals. #Cupid was a child-like archer (remember, #Nimrod was a skilled archer). #Mythology describes #Cupid as having both a cruel and happy personality. He would use his #invisible #arrows, tipped with gold, to strike unsuspecting men and women, causing them to fall madly in love. He did not do this for their benefit, but to drive them crazy with intense passion, to make their lives miserable, and to laugh at the results.

@Regranned from @victims_of_miseducation - A lot of women are forcing men into sin this day and into a pagan practice. Unknowingly of course... How? We all know if the man u with Right now does not acknowledge this day or u or cater to u around this time period it's not in his favor, this is why we just do it a lot of times. Guys don't care about this day. Also, schools are making kids participate in one of the most known practices of this day which I will address in the next post which is Valentine's Day cards.

#JustAnotherPervertedPaganDay⬇️
Like Christmas, Easter, Halloween, New Year’s and other holidays of this world, St. Valentine’s Day is another attempt to “whitewash” perverted customs and observances of pagan gods and idols by “Christianizing” them.
As innocent and harmless as St. Valentine’s Day may appear, its traditions and #customs #originate #from two of the most sexually #perverted #pagan #festivals of ancient history: #Lupercalia and the feast day of Juno Februata.
Celebrated on February 15,
#InformationOnLupercalia⬇️
#Lupercalia (known as the “festival of sexual license”) was held by the ancient Romans in honor of #Lupercus, #god #of #fertility and husbandry, protector of herds and crops, and a mighty hunter—especially of wolves. The Romans believed that Lupercus would protect Rome from roving bands of wolves, which devoured livestock and people.
The Luperci believed that the floggings purified women and guaranteed their fertility and ease of childbirth. #February #derives #from #februa or “means of purification.” After Constantine had made the Roman church’s brand of Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire (A.D. 325), church leaders wanted to do away with the pagan festivals of the people. Lupercalia was high on their list. But the Roman citizens thought otherwise.
It was not until A.D. 496 that the church at Rome was able to do anything about Lupercalia. Powerless to get rid of it, #Pope #Gelasius instead #changed it #from #February #15 #to the #14th and #called it #St. #Valentine’s #Day. It was named after one of that church’s saints, who, in A.D. 270, was executed by the emperor

El 14 de febrero, los cristianos conmemoran su fiesta de San Valentín, mal denominada "día de los enamorados", como de costumbre en la cristiandad, la intención era suplantar un rito pagano ya existente para atraer clientes y borrar la tradición anterior, en este caso las las festividades de Lupercus, deidad romana agraria de la potencia sexual, relacionada con el dios Pan, el macho cabrío siempre lujurioso, el papa Gelasio I a finales del siglo V decretó el festejo del absurdo cuento del sacerdote que casa soldados a pesar de una supuesta prohibición imperial, así que en San Valentín se festejarla lo contrario del amor, es decir, el matrimonio... No se consagra la atracción o el amor de pareja sino una convención social vacía, sin embargo no fue hasta mediados del XIX cuando la celebración tomó tintes comerciales y se incorpora a la parafernalia festiva otra deidad romana, Cupido, dios del amor, ahí se dieron cuenta que las flores y los bombones iban a ser un gran negocio este día.
Así que no regalen flores ni bombones ni boludeces, solo tengan sexo como animales salvajes y nada mas !
Feliz Lupercus para todos ! #fuckyousanvalentin #diadelosidiotas #lupercus #noamor #solosexo

I love my wife every single day, both good and bad. Today is not a day that I love her more than any other, but a day on which I celebrate and express how much I appreciate her allowing me into her life and completely changing my life for the better. The last 3 years have been so overwhelmingly splendorous and they're only getting better. We have our hard times like anyone else, but we have each other's back at the end of the day and we refuse to let the little things topple our big dreams.

None of that would have been possible without you baby, and I thank you for continuing to be my boo. I love you😁😙😙💘

Lupercalia; Sevgililer Günü.. Lupercalia, ilk dönem Roma'da 5.yy'a kadar kutlanmış eski bir Pagan bayramıdır. 15 şubat ile 23 şubatta kötü ruhları kovmak ve şehri arındırmak için yapılan bir ritüeli içerir ve bu sayede şehre bereket, bolluk ve sağlık geldiğine inanılırdı. Bu ritüele Februa denirdi. Februa, Latincede arınmak anlamına gelen bir kelimedir ve İngilizce Şubat ayının ismi (February) işte bu Pagan ritüelden gelmektedir.

Eski Roma mitolojisinde Tanrı Lupercus adına kutlanan bir bayramdır ki sonra bunu Roma'da Faunus -yani Antik Yunan’ın Pan’ı- olarak görüyoruz. Haliyle Lupercus da çobanların tanrısıdır. Rahipleri bu bayramda keçi derisini giyerler ve şehirde arındırma ritüeli yaparlardı. Özellikle bu ritüel sırasında genç kızlar rahip tarafından kutsanır ve doğurganlıklarının artacağı düşünülürdü. Ayrıca kurbanlar (keçi veya köpek) verilir ve çeşitli adaklar yakılırdı.
Bu bayramda yapılan bir diğer adet ise 14 Şubat'ta genç erkek ve genç kızların kura çekmeleri ve çektikleri kuraya göre bayram boyunca çift olmalıdır. Bunun dışında çocuk yapmak isteyen çiftler o gün doğurganlık arttığı için ilişkiye girerdi.

5. yy'da Hristiyanlık güçlendiğinde de bu gelenek hala devam ediyordu ve dönemin Papası tarafından bu geleneklerin bir çoğu yasaklanmıştı. Ama gelenek Hristiyanlaştırılmış ve devam etmiştir. Zamanla St.Valentine günü olarak anılmaya başlanmış ve diğer Pagan bayramlarında olduğu gibi bu bayram da Hristiyanlık çatısı altında kutlanmaya devam etmiştir.

Ayrıca Antik Yunan'da Şubat ayı Zeus ile Hera'nın evlliğini temsil eden bir aydır ve Ocak'ın ortasından Şubat'ın ortasından bu önemli bir süreç olarak hatırlanırdı.
