Valentines Day & Nimrod: The Original Cupid

Pictured to the left is an artists depiction of the original Saint Valentine of


Saturnia, which was later on renamed as the city of Rome. According to
Babylonian history, Nimrod was being pursued by a bounty hunt of men who
were commissioned by Shem (the son of Noah) to find him and kill him for his
many crimes against children. According to the book of Yasher (Jasher), it was
Esau (the twin brother of Jacob) who ultimately
killed Nimrod.
Nimrods demise is accurately described in
Isaiah 14:12 where he is said to be cut down to
the ground, just like a tree. Nimrods other
alias is Baal the god of the sun and the tree.
This prophecy is about Satan himself who was
once a covering cherub at the throne in heaven
(see Eze-kiel 28). After his rebellion towards the
Most High, he was cast out of heaven and he
masqueraded as the serpent in the Garden of
Eden. But he also masqueraded as the King of
Tryus. Tyrus was an ancient Phonecian city on
the Eastern Coast of the Mediterranean Sea
which today is called Lebanon.
Nimrods
crimes were many, but the most heinous
of his crimes was the sacrificing of infants
on the altar to Moloch (aka Satan). When
Nimrod fled from his pursuers, he hid
himself in the Mountains of Nembrod also
called the Mountains of Nimrod. Today,
these very same mountains are called
the Apennine Mountains and they are
located in Rome, Italy. These are the same
mountains which surround the Vatican,
2

otherwise known as The Seven Hills of


Rome.
In the book of Jasher (Joshua 10:13, 2nd Samuel
1:18), we find out that Nimrod was advised by
the priests of Baal that he would be given
esoteric knowledge (hidden or secret wisdom) or what is called the third eye or the
all-seeing eye of Lucifer (Horus). He was
told that if he committed acts of incest with
his mother, Semiramis and bestiality (sex with
animals) he would gain this secret wisdom
from the gods (fallen angels). Nimrod was
also told that he could become immortal if he
would sacrifice babies and drink the blood of these infants. This is why the
scriptures call him the mighty hunter. He was not a hunter of animals only,
but of the souls of humans.
Pictured below is the all-seeing eye seen over the Pyramid on the back of the
U.S. one dollar bill and in other occult symbolism. It represents Lucifer (Satan)
who has tried to deceive the world into believing that he is the one who is allknowing and all-wise instead of our Creator, YaHuWaH. When people in the
occult claim to have received the third eye it is what is also called psychic
power or extra-sensory perception. This is a counterfeit to the true gifts of the
Holy Spirit (1st Corinthians 12:1-11).Nimrod, is also said to have mingled his
seed with the seed of fallen angels as he had
committed acts of bestiality (sexual relations with
a goat) in order to gain supernatural demonic
power (Daniel 2:43). In Daniel 2:32-45, Daniel
interpreted a very important dream given to King
Nebuchadnezzar. This dream shows us how all of
the empires throughout history form an image of
a man, and the final destruction of this image
ends with a stone cut without hands (symbolic
of the Messiah) who comes at the 7th millennium
to destroy all of the kingdoms of this world (inspired by Satan) represented by this image of a man.
3

This image of a man is none other than an image of


Nimrod whose body parts were cut off like limbs to
a tree and delivered to each of the ten provinces
within the land of Shinar. In Genesis 10:9-19, we see
that Nimrods kingdom consisted of ten provinces.
After his kingdom was broken up by the confusing of
the languages and by the splitting of the continents
(Genesis 10:32, 11:7-8), his Mystery Religion continued
under different names. All ten of these provinces in the latter days will come
back together again as ten horns on the Beast or ten toes (Daniel 2:42; 7:24,
Revelation 12:3).
The four body parts to this image of a man are accurately seen in Zechariah 1 as
being four horns (political powers) who have scattered Judah, Yisrael, and
Jerusalem. The four body parts (head of gold, chest of silver, hips of brass, two
iron legs) represent four empires: Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome. But in the
end of days, out of these two iron legs (Rome) will come ten toes or ten
horns which will be a revival of Nimrods kingdom which consisted of these
very same ten provinces in the land of Shinar (Genesis 10:9-19). These ten
provinces used to be concentrated in one area, but after the biblical Pangaea,
where the earth was divided (Genesis 10:32), these ten provinces later on were
divided into seven continents of the world: Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia,
Europe, North America, and South America. In the end of days however, there will
be ten kings that will arise to control these seven continents of the world. The
ten horns on the beast correspond to ten
toes in Daniel 2:43.
The iron symbolizes fallen angels (not
human) and the clay symbolizes human
seed because Yah created Adam from the
dust of the earth (clay). When the seed of
Satan is mingled with the seed of humans
(Nephilim) that is when the ten toes or ten
horns will rule for one hour with the beast:
Chazown (Revelation) 12:3 And there appeared
another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red
4

dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
In the Apostle Johns revelation, the angel told John that the seven heads
represent seven mountains on which the woman sits:
Chazown (Revelation) 17:9 And here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads
are seven mountains, on which the woman sits.
Dave Hunt who authored the Book A Woman Rides the Beast gives an
accurate description of these seven mountains:
Here is no mystical or allegorical language but an unambiguous statement in plain
words:
The woman ... is that great city. There is no justification for seeking some other hidden
meaning. Yet books have been written and sermons preached insisting that Mystery
Babylon is the United States. That is clearly not the case, for the United States is a
country, not a city. One might justifiably refer to the United States as Sodom, considering the honor now given to homosexuals, but it is definitely not the Babylon that John
sees in this vision. The woman is a city....
Furthermore, she is a city built on seven hills. That specification eliminates ancient
Babylon. Only one city has for more than 2000 years been known as the city on seven
hills. That city is Rome. The Catholic Encyclopedia
states:
It is within the city of Rome, called the city of
seven hills, that the entire area of Vatican State
proper is now confined.
When Nimrod was killed and his body parts were
delivered to each of the ten provinces of the land of
Shinar, we can see that each province received one
of his body parts. The four main body parts (head,
chest, hips, two legs) end up in the last days branching off into ten body parts (ten toes or ten horns)
as there will be ten political or global powers on the
earth. The seven hills of Rome where Nimrod
was killed and his body parts were severed, will
5

come back together again as the beast ascends out


of the bottomless pit. The image of a man
(revived Nimrod) will be given life and made to
speak, as he will be worshiped again as the AntiMessiah:
Chazown (Revelation) 13:15 And he had power to
give life unto the image of the beast, that the
image of the beast should both speak, and cause that
as many as would not worship the image of the beast
should be killed.
Nimrods image seen in the image of a man in
Daniel 2:31-45 will be given life by Satan himself and he will be revived in the
last days and worshiped. It should come as no surprise that since Nimrods
body parts were severed in the ancient city of Saturnia (Rome) that is where
the seven hills of Rome are now situated. But when Nimrods ten body parts
(provinces) come back together again to form an image of a man, those seven
hills that today surround Rome will have distributed its power to the seven
continents of the world.
Now we can see why Satan has transformed into this creature which is pictured
above as half-goat and half-man. Nimrod is according to the Babylonian Mystery Religion none other than a reincarnation of Satan himself.
2nd Qorintiym (Corinthians) 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed
into an angel of light.
Satan has transformed himself throughout history in many different mythological characters in order to receive worship from mortal humans. Satan has
presented himself in the scriptures as the King of Tyrus (Ezekiel 28:2), the King
of Babylon (Isaiah 14:22) the King of Assyria (Isaiah 14:25, Micah 5:5-6). All
throughout history, Satan has transformed himself into various creatures and
he has possessed earthly kings.
Pictured here is Nimrod, Baal, Valentine, the Mighty Hunter, Faunus, Lupercus. He is the same BAPHOMET or the Goat of Mendez worshiped by Freemasons at the 30th, 31st, 32nd & 33rd degrees. Satan has many aliases.

Who Was Nimrod?


Nimrod, the mulatto son of
Cush the Ethiopian, was
later a source of embarrasssment to the pagans of Europe. They didnt want an
African to worship.
Consequently, they substituted a supposed son of
Nimrod, a white child
named Horus, born after
the death of Nimrod. This
white child then became
the fair cupid of European
tradition.
Nimrod was the great grandson of Noah, and he was said to be a mighty
hunter before YaHuWaH:
Bereshiyth (Genesis) 10:9 He was a mighty hunter before YHWH: wherefore it is said,
Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before YHWH.
Some people think that this is a positive connotation of being a hunter before
YaHuWaH but if you look up the Hebrew word for before in Genesis 10, it
reveals that he did these rebellious child sacrifices in front of YaHuWaHs face!
This means that he had no shame for his abominations. He hunted people down
and used them for sacrifices.
This word before in Genesis 10:9 is #H6440. paniym:
Face, presence, person, surface (of ground), before and behind, toward, in front of,
forward, formerly, from before-time, before, in the presence of, in the face of, at the
face or front of, from the presence of, from before, from before the face of.
Nimrod did these evil things right in the face of YaHuWaH which is a way of
saying that he was arrogant and had no shame for his atrocities!
7

We can read about this in the Antiquities of Josephus, in the book of Jasher and
also in The Two Babylons by Alexander Hislop.
Executed at Rome
Nimrod -- THE ORIGINAL ST. VALENTINE -- was also known as Saturn, the
Roman-Babylonian god who HID from his pursuers in a secret place. The Latin
word Saturn is derived from the Semitic-speaking Babylonians. It means to be
hid, hide self, secret, conceal. The original Semitic (Hebrew) word, from which
the Latin Saturn is derived, is used 83 times in the Old Testament (see Youngs
Concordance) under Sathar, also sether.
According to ancient tradition, Saturn (Nimrod) fled from his pursuers to Italy.
The Apennine Mountains of Italy were anciently named the mountains of
Nembrod or Nimrod. Nimrod briefly hid out at the site where Rome was later
built. The ancient name of Rome, before it was rebuilt in 753 B.C., was Saturnia - the site of Saturns (Nimrods) hiding. There he was found and slain for his
crimes. Later, professing Christians in Constantines day made Nimrod -- the St.
Valentine of the heathen -- a SAINT of the Church and continued to honor him
under the name of a Christian martyr.
Nimrod Was Killed at the Seven Hills of Rome
You may be wondering to yourself how could Nimrod be killed in Rome, when
the Land of Shinar existed about 1,200 years before Rome?
The Land of Shinar where Nimrods Kingdom once existed is in Modern-day
Iraq. And so the question arises, how could he travel to Rome to run away
from his pursuers who were trying to kill him?
We can easily see how this happened by understanding that Rome used to be
where Iraq is today!
See my other article entitled: Nimrod, the Papacy & Pangaea:
Pangaea, according to modern science took place 240 million years ago. But
according to scripture, it happened after the flood in the days of Noah:
8

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 10:


25 And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was
the earth divided; and his brothers name was Joktan.
32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations:
and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.
This event was not the same event mentioned in Genesis 11, where YaHuWaH
confounded the languages at Babel! This was a literal splitting of the earths
seven continents!
Lets see what the Hebrew word here is for divided:
Strongs #H6385. palag: to divide, split, (Niphal) to be split, be divided, to split,
cleave, to divide.
In Genesis 11, when YaHuWaH confounded the languages of the people at
Babel, the word for confound is as follows:
Strongs #H1101. balal:
To mix, mingle, confuse,
confound, to give proven-der,
feed (animals), to mix
oneself (among others), to
fade away.
As you can see, the first
event where the earth
was divided was a literal
splitting of the earths continents! But the second
event is where YaHuWaH
actually confounded their
languages. I suspect that
these two events happened
either simultaneously or
9

very close together. Right about the time when Nimrods kingdom was taken
over by his widow Semiramis, this is when YaHuWaH sent mass-confusion to
this Anti-Messiah Empire which then caused people to migrate to different
parts of the earth. The earths crust was also splitting and causing the continents
to shift, and so the people groups were literally split away from Babel and their
languages were confused as well. As you can see from the illustration above, all
seven of the continents were connected before the flood.
Nimrod Built the Tower of Babel
Bereshiyth (Genesis) 10:
8 And Cush begat Nimrod: he
began to be a mighty one in
the earth.
9 He was a mighty hunter before
YHWH: wherefore it is said,
Even as Nimrod the mighty
hunter before YHWH.
10 the beginning of his kingdom
was Babel, and Erech, and
Accad, and Calneh, in the land
of Shinar.
11 Out of that land went forth
Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah,
12 And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great city.
Asshur or Assyria was the exact location where the Vatican is now located in
Rome before the earth was divided in Pangaea after the flood!
In Rome at one time Valentine was called Baalentine to commemorate
Baal the god of sexual desire. Now we can see the connection between
Valentines Day, the Papacy, and Mystery Babylon. Valentines Day is another
custom birthed at the Tower of Babel, which is why the Roman Papacy has
made Saint Valentines Day an official Roman Catholic holiday.
10

According to ancient tradition, Saturn (Nimrod) fled from his pursuers to Italy.
The Apennine Mountains of Italy were anciently named the The Mountains of
Nembrod or Nimrod.
In the 3rd Century during the reign of the Roman Emperor Constantine, Gnostic
Christians believed that Nimrod was reincarnated as the Messiah of Yisrael,
Yahuwshuwa (Jesus), hence they made Saint Valentine or Saint Baalentine
of the heathen (a so-called Saint of the Church), and continued to honor him
under the name of a Christian martyr. As you can see, Roman Catholicism secretly teaches Another Yahuwshuwa (Another Jesus) which is not the same
Messiah of the Bible. Their Messiah is actually a reincarnation of Nimrod or
Lucifer as the New Age Christ for all religions.
The official title for the Vatican today is called The Seven Hills of Rome. These
seven hills are accurately translated in the Strongs Greek Concordance as
mountains:
#3735. oros: or-os probably from an obsolete oro (to rise or rear, perhaps akin
to 142; compare 3733); a mountain (as lifting itself above the plain): hill, mountain.
Chazown (Revelation) 17:9 And here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads
are seven mountains, on which the woman sits.
The Catholic Encyclopedia states the following concerning the Vatican: It is
within the city of Rome, called the city of seven hills, that the entire area of
Vatican State proper is now confined.

Rome Exchanged the Set-Apart Holy Days of YaHuWaH with Days that
Commemorate Nimrod
The Yule Wheel is a pagan representation of all the annual celebrations
offered up to the pagan sun-gods and moon goddesses in their many different
reincarnated forms.
The wheel has eight segments signifying eight pagan Sabbaths each year.
Notice the five-pointed star of witchcraft, also called the Eastern Star. The
star is within a circle representing the sun-god, Baal.
Eight Feasts for the Beast
In many of my other writings
I often show the same pagan Sabbath wheel detailing
the eight pagan Sabbaths of
the Antichrist annually. If I
seem redundant and repetitive concerning this, it is
because I want to emphasize
that all eight of these pagan
feasts are meant to prepare
the entire world for worshiping the Beast (Satan) and his
image of a man (the revived
Nimrod). Each of these pagan
holidays commemorates
Nimrod but they have been cleverly disguised to appear Christian.
The Catholic Church gave these pagan holidays a so-called Christian identity.
Lets see what they are:
1.) Imbolc February 2nd-February 15th later became Saint Valentines Day. February 14th is the Ides of the month, which was supposedly the luckiest time for
omens and spells to be done by the occultists.

12

2.) Ostara (Easter) March 21st March 25th (The Vernal Equinox). Rome assimilated this pagan goddess to Passover in order to confuse the true biblical Passover with this fertility goddess. They even changed the Catholic Calendar to
make Easter fall closer to Passover week in order to confuse Messiahs Resurrection with hers.
3.) Beltane (Mayfest) May 1st - May 5th in honor of the goddess of fertility or
what many call Mother Earth the Queen of Heaven. The Catholic Church
has attached the mother of our Messiah, Miryam (Mary) to this pagan godess, also celebrated as Cinco de Mayo.
4.) Midsummer Solstice June 21st, the first day of Summer, Catholics call it St.
Johns Day.
5.) Lugnasad August 1st August 15th is also known as the alleged Ascension
day of the Catholic Mary or the ancient mother goddess, Semiramis.
6.) Mabon September 21st, the first day of Autumn, September 21st.
7.) Samhain (Halloween) October 31st - November 1st, the Catholic All-Saints
Day or All-Souls Day.
8.) Yule (Christmas) December 21st December 25th, the Winter Solstice; the
birthday of all false Messiahs.
The Ides of the Month in Paganism: Why February 14th?
Why should the Romans have chosen February 15th and the evening of February 14th to honor Lupercus -- the Nimrod of the Bible? Well, first of all, it is
important to understand that since the creation, a new calendar date changed at
sunset, the evening before.
Nimrod (the Baal or sun-god of the ancient pagans) was said to have been born
at the winter solstice. In ancient times the solstice occurred on January 6th and
his birthday therefore was celebrated on January 6th. Later, as the solstice changed, it was celebrated on December 25th and is now called Christmas. It was the
custom of antiquity for the mother of a male child to present herself for purifycation on the fortieth day after the day of birth (Leviticus 12:2-5). The fortieth
13

day after January 6th (Nimrods original birthdate) takes us to February 15th, the celebration
of which began on the evening of February
14th the Lupercalia or St. Valentines Day. On
this day in February, Semiramis, the mother of
Nimrod, was said to have been PURIFIED and
to have appeared for the first time in public
with her son as the original mother & child.
The Roman month February, in fact, derives its
name from the februa which the Roman
priests used in the rites celebrated on St.Valentines Day. The februa were thongs from
the skins of sacrificial animals used in rites of
purification on the evening of February 14th.
Cupid Makes His Appearance
Another name for the child Nimrod was Cupid which means desire----Encyclopedia Britannica, article, Cupid. It is said that when Nimrods mother
saw him, she LUSTED after him -- she DESIRED him. Nimrod became her
Cupid -- her desired one -- and later her Valentine! So evil was Nimrods
mother Semiramis that she married her own son! Inscribed on the monuments
of ancient Egypt are inscriptions that Nimrod (the Egyptians called him Osiris)
was the husband of his mother. As Nimrod grew up, he became the child-hero of
many women who desired him. He was
their Cupid! In Daniel 11:37, he is called the
desire of women.
He provoked so many women to jealousy
that an idol of him was often called the
the image of jealousy (Ezekiel 8:5). It is
said that when Noahs son Shem had
Nimrod killed all of his body parts were
chopped off like limbs to a tree, hence, the
reason he is the god of the Christmas tree.
But the only body part of his that was never
found was his penis! Nimrods penis was
14

then memorialized as the Egyptian Obelisk seen


here as the Washington Monument---a powerful
occult talisman used to draw satanic power in
rituals. In the last days, all ten horns (political
powers) of the earth will be ruled by only one
horn called the little horn (Daniel 7:8, 8:9).
This means that all of the seven continents of the
world will be ruled by ten horns but these ten
horns will rule for one hour with the beast
(Revelation 17:12), as they will come under the
authority of this one horn (One World Government). This horn is none other than Satans
political power that will be seen in the Phallic
Symbol of Nimrod (the Obelisk). Pictured
above is a white horse with one single horn
on his head (a unicorn). This is a mystical
creature of mythology mentioned in Revelation 6.
This is not to be confused with the word
unicorn mentioned in the King James
Bible which is actually a rhinoceros.
We are shown in Revelation 6 that the AntiMessiah will conquer the world while riding a white horse as he tries to mimic
the true Messiah in Revelation 19 who also returns on a white horse.
Every Pope is secretly meant to be a reincarnation of Nimrod, the original false Christ. That
is why every Pope wears the Mitre of Dagon the
Fish on his head. It is said that when Nimrods
body parts were cut off and distributed that he
was reincarnated as a fish and he lived in the
Mediterranean Sea. Thus we can see why the
King of Tyrus in Ezekiel 28 is an allusion to the
serpent in the Garden of Eden and also a reincarnation of Nimrod as Dagon the god of the sea.
This website gives more insight about now
15

Nimrod became known in the occult pagan world as the god of the fish:
http://www.thevesselofgod.com/hiram.html
The gods of the Tyrians are interesting insofar as they represent a stage in the evolution
between what had come before and what eventually came after. On the one hand they
were patterned after far more ancient deified kings; on the other hand, they obviously
served as the prototypes for the deities of later cultures such as the Greeks and Romans.
For instance, Melqart, patterned upon Marduk, was known as the Tyrian Hercules, and
later became synchronized with Hercules. The father of Hercules was Zeus, that of
Marduk, Dagon. It follows then that Zeus and Dagon represent different incarnations
(or representations) of the same figure. This premise seems to be substantiated by the
fact that Zeus was also known as Dyaus, and Dagon was also known as Daonos, two
names so similar as to imply a common origin for the two. Dagon was likewise known
as Daos, from which we probably derive the word Deus, or God. Furthermore, Zeus was
at times referred to as Diu-Pater, which served as the basis for the Roman Jupiter. DiuPater translates simply as God the Father. Though a title such as God the Father isnt
paid too much serious attention in modern times, it could well indicate an important
aspect of how the ancients viewed the notion of deity. This is to say, perhaps they viewed
God, not as any sort of supernatural being, but rather as an ancestor. King Hiram
(2nd Samuel 5:11 & 1st Kings 5:1) seems to have made a conscious effort to manipulate
the archetype embodied in the
Phoenician gods, so that he himself
appeared to be a flesh and blood
incarnation or extension of them. His
throne sat before large windows
opening upon the sea and crashing
waves. Visitors to his palace may well
have thought theyd entered the
domain of Poseidon himself.
As we can see from the above article, Nimrod has become the Universal god of the pagans and just
as his body parts were scattered
throughout the ten provinces of
Shinar, so his Mystery Religion
has been scattered to the nations
(ten horns on the beast).

The Connection Between The Book of Esther & Valentines Day: A Lucky
Day to Kill Jews?
In 1582, the Roman Julian Calendar was updated and changed to the Gregorian
Calendar decreed by Pope Gregory XIII. It was at this point, that Pope Gregory
caused a new calendar date to change at midnight, instead of at sundown, and
thus changing Yahs rendering of times and seasons. He also changed the New
Year back to January 1st which was first done by Julius Caesar. But as Christianity began to spread throughout Europe, many Christians began to celebrate
the New Year on March 25th (the original date of Easter), because they thought
that Messiah was born on December 25th. Nine months backwards would make
his conception date fall on March 25th. Little did they realize that this was the
conception date of Nimrod and his reincarnated son Tammuz (Ezekiel 8:14).
In order to manipulate the calendar so that Easter would fall closer to YaHuWaHs Passover, Pope Gregory then changed the New Year to fall on January
1st (in honor of the pagan god Janus) and thus the Catholic Church would be
able to assimilate the pagan celebration of Easter to Messiahs resurrection.
Before Pope Gregory changed the New Year to January, the 12th month of the
year was February. The Romans and all other pagan cultures who worshiped
worshiped Baal in his many different forms believed that the 13th day of the
12th month was a lucky day to call on the pagan gods.
The Wicked Haman Plotted
to Kill Yahuwdah (the House
of Judah) on the 13th day of
the 12th Month
On the Hebrew Calendar, the
12th month is called Adar
and so it is no coincidence
that the wicked Haman had
cast lots to see what day
would be the luckiest day of
the year to annihilate the
Yahuwdiy (Jewish) people.
The lots were cast and the
17

demons gave the answer to Haman through the soothsayers as seen in the book
of Esther. The day that was selected was the 13th day of the 12th month of Adar
(Esther 3:13).
The ancient Romans believed that every month had a spirit that gained in strength and reached its peak or apex of power in the middle or ides of the month.
This was usually the 15th day, and it was a day when witches and augurs, or
soothsayers worked their magic. An augur was a person filled with a spirit of
divination, and from the root-word augur we also get the word inaugurate,
which means to take omens.
Since February had been robbed by the Caesars and had only 28 days (29 in
leap years), the Ides of February became the 14th day of
that month. Since the Ides of a month was celebrated on the
preceding eve, the month of February was unique, because
it was the 13th day that became the eve of the Ides that
month, and it became a very important pagan holiday in
the Empire of Rome.
Wow! Now we know why the wicked Haman wanted to
destroy the Yahuwdiy (Jewish) people on the 13th day of the
12th month! The Hebrew month called Adar used to be in
February before Pope Gregory changed the Calendar
around, and the 13th day of the month was their luckiest
day when they could beckon the gods to do their bidding!
And so if you are a Yahuwdiy (Jew), or Messianic or a
Christian, keep in mind that Valentines Day is also the same day that Haman
wanted to annihilate the Yahuwdiyth (Jewish) people and thus wipe out the
tribe of Judah through which our Messiah would later on be born into! This is
one more reason for us to have nothing to do with this evil celebration of Baal!
*Last Trumpet Ministries Website commentaries:
In the days of the Roman Empire, the month of February was the last and shortest month of the year. February originally had 30 days, but when Julius Caesar
named the month of July after himself, he decided to make that month longer
and shortened February to 29 days while making July a month of 31 days. Later
18

when Octavius Caesar, also known as Augustus, came


to power, he named the month of August after himself, and not to be outdone he also subtracted a day
from February and gave the month of August 31 days.
To this very day it remains that way.
This was a day that was sacred to the sexual frenzy of
the goddess Juno. This day also honored the Roman
gods, Lupercus and Faunus, as well as the legendary
twin brothers, who supposedly founded Rome, Remus and Romulus. These two are said to have been
suckled by wolves in a cave on Palatine Hill in Rome. The cave was called Lupercal and was the center of the celebrating on the eve of Lupercalia or February
14th.
On this day, Lupercalia, which was later named Valentines Day, the Luperci or
priests of Lupercus dressed in goatskins for a bloody ceremony. The priests of
Lupercus, the wolf-god, would sacrifice goats and a dog and then smear themselves with blood. These priests, made red with sacrificial blood, would run
around Palatine Hill in a wild frenzy while carving a goatskin thong called
a februa. Women would sit all around the hill, as the bloody priests would
strike them with the goatskin thongs to make them fertile. The young women
would then gather in the city and their names were put in boxes. These love
notes were called billets. The men of Rome would draw a billet, and the
woman whose name was on it became his sexual lust partner with whom he
would fornicate until the next Lupercalia or February 14th.

19

Thus, February 14th became a day of unbridled sexual lust. The color red was
sacred to that day because of the blood and the heart shape that is popular to
this day. The heart-shape was not a representation of the human heart, which
looks nothing like it. This shape represents the human female matrix or opening
to the chamber of sacred copulation. No wonder the pagans commemorated
their hero-hunter Nimrod, or Baal, by sending heart-shaped love tokens to one
another on the evening of February 14 as a symbol of him!
When the Gnostic Catholic Church began to get a foothold in Rome around the
3rd century A.D., they became known as Valentinians. The Catholic Valentinians
retained the sexual license of the festival in what they called angels in a nuptial chamber, which was also called the sacrament of copulation. This was
said to be a reenactment of the marriage of Sophia and the Redeemer. As the
participants of the February 14th ritual began, their sexual sacrament presided
over and watched by the priests known as Valentinians, the following literary
was spoken: Let the seed of light descend into thy bridal chamber, receive the bridegroom open thine arms to embrace him. Behold, grace has descended upon thee.
As time went on, the Orthodox Church suppressed the Gnostic Catholics and
manufactured Saint Valentine, whose day continues to be celebrated in these
modern times. It should be without saying that followers of Messiah should
avoid Valentines Day like a plague.
20

In the eyes of our Creator, YaHuWaH, it is still Lupercalia, the Day of the
Wolf. Men become wolves, as they carried on the satanic rituals of fornication,
which means sexual intercourse without marriage. We have heard of the wolf
whistle, and we all know that wolves do not whistle. It represents lustful men
and women, who carry on Satans blasphemy to this very day in the rituals of
paganism.

Nimrod the Mighty Valentine

Christian Custom? -- Or Pagan Holiday?
Where did St. Valentine's Day come from?
You might suppose that school teachers and educators would know. But do
they? How many of you were ever taught the real origin of Valentines Day?
Were you ever told in school why you should observe the custom of exchanging
Valentines?
The Silence of Educators
Teachers are all too often silent about the origin of the customs they are forced
to teach in todays schools! If they were to speak out, many would lose their
jobs!
Isnt it time we examined why we encourage our children to celebrate Saint
Valentines Day, when it is never so much as mentioned in the Bible as a practice of the first Century followers of Messiah?

21

Today, candy-makers unload tons of


heart-shaped red boxes for February
14th, while millions of the younger
generation are annually exchanging
Valentines. Florists consider February
14th (St. Valentines Day) as one of their
best business days. And young lovers
pair off (at least for a dance or two) at
St. Valentines balls.
Why? Where did these customs originate? Where do we find any such practices in the Bible? How did we come to
inherit these customs?
A Christian Custom?
Did you know that centuries before Messiah, the pagan Romans celebrated
February 15th and the evening of February 14th as an idolatrous and sensuous
festival in honor of Lupercus, the hunter of wolves?
The Romans called the festival the Lupercalia. The custom of exchanging
Valentines and all the other traditions in honor of Lupercus (the deified herohunter of Rome) was also linked anciently with the pagan practice of teenagers going steady. It usually led to fornication. Today, the custom of going
steady is thought very modern, but it isnt. It is merely a rebirth of an old
custom handed down from the Roman festival of the Lupercalia, celebrated in
the month of February, when names of young women were put into a box and
drawn out by men as chance directed. Thats the admission of the Encyclopedia Americana, article, St. Valentines Day.
When Constantine made Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire
there was some talk in church circles of discarding this pagan free-for-all. But
the Roman citizens wouldnt hear of it! So it was agreed that the holiday would
continue as it was, except for the more grossly sensual observances.
It was not until the reign of Pope Gelasius that the holiday became a Christian
custom. As far back as 496, Pope Gelasius changed Lupercalia on February
22

15th to St. Valentines Day on February 14th pg. 172


of Customs and Holidays Around the World by
Lavinia Dobler.
But how did this pagan festival acquire the name
of St. Valentines Day? And why is the little naked
Cupid of the pagan Romans so often associated today
with February 14th? And why do little children and
young people still cut out hearts and send them on a
day in honor of Lupercus the hunter of wolves? Why have we supposed these
pagan customs in honor of a false god are Christian?
Who Was the Original St. Valentine?
Valentine was a common Roman name. Roman parents often gave the name to
their children in honor of the famous man who was first called Valentine in
antiquity. That famous man was Lupercus, the HUNTER. But who was Lupercus? And why should he have also borne the name Valentine among the heathen Romans?
The Greeks called Lupercus by the name of Pan. The Semites called Pan,
Baal, according to the Classical Dictionaries. Baal (mentioned so often in
the Bible) was merely another name for Nimrod, the mighty hunter (Genesis
10:9). The hunter, Nimrod was the Lupercus (or wolf hunter) of the Romans.
And St. Valentines Day was originally a day set aside by the pagans in his
honor!
But why should Nimrod have been called Valentine by the Romans? And why
should the celebration of this day have been anciently limited to the city of
Rome before Pope Gelasius time? What part did the site of ancient Rome play
in the life of Nimrod?
The word Valentine comes from another Latin word Valentinus, which is a
proper name derived from the word valens, meaning to be strong, declares
Websters Unabridged Dictionary. It means literally strong, powerful, mighty.
Is there any connection with Nimrod? We read in the Bible that Nimrod was the
mighty hunter (Genesis 10:9). It was a common proverb of ancient times that
23

Nimrod was the mighty hunter before


YaHuWaH. NIMROD WAS THEIR
HERO -- THEIR STRONG MAN -THEIR VALENTINE!
How plain that the original Valentine
was Nimrod, the mighty hunter of
wolves. Yet another of Nimrods names
was Sanctus or Santa, meaning Saint. It was a common title of any herogod. No wonder that the Roman Lupercalia is called Saint Valentines Day!
But why do we associate HEARTS on a day in honor of Nimrod -- the BAAL of
the Phoenicians and Semites?
The surprising answer is that the pagan Romans acquired the symbol of the
heart from the Babylonians. In the Babylonian tongue the word for heart was
bal (see Youngs or Strongs Concordance). The heart bal -- was merely a
symbol of Nimrod -- the Baal or Lord of the Babylonians!
Rome Tried to Redeem Valentines Day

Saint Valentine depicted below as a boy bishop,
was martyred on February 14th 278 A.D.

English Songs & Ballads--Mary Evans Picture

As you can see by this artists depiction of Saint
Valentine, he is wearing the same Dagon Fish
hat worn by the pagan priests of Nimrod (Baal)
showing us that Satan is always trying to masqueade himself as an angel of light. In this book
entitled Old English Songs & Ballads, the later
history of Valentines Day is recorded:
24

On February 14th around the year 278 A.D., Valentine, a priest in Rome in the days of
Emperor Claudius II, was executed.
Under the rule of Claudius the Cruel, Rome was involved in many unpopular and
bloody campaigns. The emperor had to maintain a strong army, but was having a
difficult time getting soldiers to join his military leagues. Claudius believed that Roman
men were unwilling to join the army because of their strong attachment to their wives
and families.
To get rid of the problem, Claudius banned all marriages and engagements in Rome.
Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret.
When Valentines actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death.
Valentine was arrested and dragged before the Prefect of Rome, who condemned him to
be beaten to death with clubs and to have his head cut off. The sentence was carried out
on February 14th, on or about the year 270.
Legend also has it that while in jail, St. Valentine left a farewell note for the jailers
daughter, who had become his friend, and signed it From Your Valentine.
For his great service, Valentine was named a saint after his death.
In truth, the exact origins and identity of St. Valentine are unclear. According to the
Catholic Encyclopedia, there are At least three different Saint Valentines, all of
them martyrs, are mentioned in the early martyrologies under the date of
the 14th February. One was a priest in Rome, the second one was a bishop of Interamna (now Terni, Italy) and the third St. Valentine was a martyr in the Roman
province of Africa.
Legends vary on how the martyrs name became connected with romance. The date of
his death may have become mingled with the Feast of Lupercalia, a pagan festival of
love. On these occasions, the names of young women were placed in a box, from which
they were drawn by the men as chance directed. In 496 AD, Pope Gelasius decided to
put an end to the Feast of Lupercalia, and he declared that February 14th be celebrated as
St Valentines Day.
Gradually, February 14th became a date for exchanging love messages, poems and simple
gifts such as flowers.
25

Once again it is of Roman Catholic origin with pagan rites of sex and fertility
attached to it.
Should We Honor Saints?
First of all, scripture defines a saint as one who is set-apart from the world
and its pagan customs, and one who obeys the commandments of our Creator.
The Roman Catholic Church defines a saint quite differently.
The Roman Catholic Church has adopted a custom of honoring saints but are
these people truly saints in the eyes of our Heavenly Father? Does scripture
teach us to give honor to men such as Saint Valentine? What does scripture
tell us about giving honor to human beings?
Yahuwchanon (John) 5:41 I receive not honour from men.
Yahuwchanon (John) 5:44 How can you believe, which receive honour one of
another, and seek not the honour that comes from Elohiym only?
The Roman Catholic Church has even created a day for honoring saints
called All-Saints Day (aka Halloween). But no place are we commanded to
set aside a day to honor any so-called saints. All of these pagan holidays
are traditions of men designed to nullify the word of Elohiym in the life of
the believer.
Traditions of Men
What did Yahuwshuwa tell us about man-made traditions?
Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 15:3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do you also
transgress the commandment of Elohiym by your tradition?
Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 15:6 Thus have you made the commandment of Elohiym
of none effect by your tradition.
Marqos (Mark) 7:9 And he said unto them, Full well you reject the commandment
of Elohiym, that you may keep your own tradition.

26

Marqos (Mark) 7:13 Making the word of Elohiym of none effect through your
tradition
In conclusion, we must ask ourselves, Should a true follower of the Messiah be
associated in any way with this celebration of evil roots? Should we be doing
what the heathen have done for so many years and try to justify it as love?
Romans 12:2 answers this very well: And be not conformed to this world: but
be you transformed by the renewing of your mind
You may have a hard time giving up this holiday. You may even try to rationalize: Well we can turn this into a day to celebrate the love of Messiah, right?
Well this may sound logical but listen to what the Apostle Shauwl (Paul) wrote
concerning man-made traditions:
Qolasiym (Colossians) 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and
vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not
after Mashiyach (Messiah).
Finally, we are exhorted not to learn the ways of the heathen when it comes to
observing the signs of heavens by use of astrology:
Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah) 10:2 Thus says YHWH, Learn not the way of the heathen,
and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at
them.
It is about time that we examined these foolish customs of the pagans now
falsely labeled by the Roman Church. It is time we quit this Roman and Babylonian foolishness -- this IDOLATRY -- and get back to the faith of our Messiah
delivered once and for all time by the Hebrew Apostles.
Lets stop teaching our children these pagan customs in memory of Baal the
sun-god -- the original St. Valentine -- and teach them instead what the Bible
really says!
Valentines Day is just another one of these Feasts for the Beast that are
meant to condition the entire world into accepting the final man of sin in the
last days. Although it is celebrated under the false pretense that it is all about
27

LOVE, (just like Christmas), it is actually another pagan holiday giving honor to
Satan through his visible image, Nimrod. Before you give out candy and cards
this coming Valentines Day, consider that to do so you are paying homage to
this creature in his many different aliases: Nimrod, Baal, Pan, Lupercus,
Saturn, Santa (Saint), Satan!

*Note to the reader:


In all of my articles, I am quoting from the 1634 King James Version of the Bible,
(unless otherwise stated). However, I have updated archaic words such as thee, thou,
art, hitherto, thy, thine etc. I have also restored the sacred names of deity as they
have been removed 7,000 times from the original Hebrew Scriptures. Instead of the
LORD I use four English letters to represent the four Hebrew letters in our Creators
name: Yod, Hey, Waw, Hey as YHWH (called the Tetragrammaton). I have inserted
lower case letters into YaHuWaH to aid in pronunciation. The word God has been
restored to the Hebrew Elohiym, and the Messiahs name has been restored from
Jesus to ancient Hebrew for Joshua which is represented by six Hebrew Letters:
Yod, Hey, Waw, Shin, Waw, Ayin (YHWSWA). I spell the name of our Messiah as
Yahuwshuwa which can be seen in the Strongs Hebrew Concordance #3091. The
modern spelling is Yehowshuwa because of something called the pre-tonal shortening
rule that was purposely invented to conceal the name of our Heavenly Father. After the
Babylonian Captivity, the House of Judah deliberately placed a ban on pronouncing
the name of our Creator and today in Judaism, they simply refer to him as haShem
(the name) or Adonai (master). But scripture commands us to call upon the name of
YHWH for salvation (Joel 2:32, Romans 10:13). Hence this ban on pronouncing the
name of our Creator is a violation of the 3rd Commandment you shall not take the name
of YHWH in vain. That word for vain means to make his name empty. Also, for
the title Messiah I use the Hebrew word Mashiyach from the Hebrew text the letters
appear as: Mem, Shin, Yod, Chets (MSYC). Also, there are many names of patriarchs
and biblical personalities whose names contain the first three letters of our Fathers
name (called the trigrammaton). Examples of these names are: YaHuWceph (Joseph),
YaHuWshuwa (Joshua), YaHuWchanon (John), YaHuWnathan (Jonathan),
EliYaHuW (Elijah), YirmeYaHuW (Jeremiah), YeshaYaHuW (Isaiah), have the first
three letters to the Creators name in them. I have restored those names where ever
possible and I also include the Hebrew names for books of the Bible with the English
name in parenthesis. In Modern Hebrew, the Creators name has been removed, from
many of these names and they have been shortened to: Yshua (Joshua), Yosef (Joseph),
Yonathan (Jonathan) etc. The reason for this is because in the Jewish Talmud there is a
man-made law that enforces a ban on pronouncing the sacred name of our Creator.
This is against the scriptures, as we are commanded not to add nor remove words
from the original inspired scriptures (see Deuteronomy 4:2, 12:32, Proverbs 4:6,
Revelation 22:18-19). Why should this matter? In Zephaniah 3:9 we read an important
end-time prophecy about how YaHuWaH is going to restore the human race back to a
pure language so that we may all call upon him with one consent. That pure
language is Ancient Hebrew as we find that our Creator actually created the Hebrew
Alphabet at Creation. Here is how it reads in the original Hebrew Old Testament:
29

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 1:1 In the beginning Elohiym created ALEF & TAW the
heaven (shamayim) and WAW, ALEF & TAW the earth (erets).
The first and last letter of the Hebrew Alphabet is called the Alef (A) and the
Taw (T). These letters are seen in Ancient Paleo Hebrew Pictographs as the
red heifer or the ox head and the two sticks (the cross)
The letter Waw is a picture of the nail or the tent peg. Hence, the message
in these three letters is: the red heifer sacrifice, the nail, and the cross! Since
there are 22 Letters in the Hebrew alphabet, and YaHuWaH created us in his
image and by the spoken word (made up of letters) these letters contain
frequencies by which everything in the material world exists! That is why
there are 22 strands in the human DNA!
In Revelation 1:8, 1:11, 21:6, 22:13, the Messiah is called the Alef & Taw (Alpha &
Omega) in Greek. The entire Hebrew Alphabet is a schematic of him! Hence the reason
why being restored to the Edenic Language from creation is part of the restoration of
all things (Acts 3:21).
