Happy Easter

I want to wish all those who celebrate Easter a happy holiday.

I am reading up on the pre-Islamic religion of the Kurds. It seems that the Yezidi, Alevis and the Yarsani are grouped together in a eerie religious similarity called the cult of angels.

How one makes the leap from Melek Taurus the Peacock Angel to Lucifer remains unknown. I have never heard of a peacock as satanic. However, I will rport back after
my reading.

Thanks beak!

Peacocks strike me as a somwhat deceptive bird...tries to be bigger than he is.

If I remember correctly, A flame/fire is used in the Yezidi worship service .

Lucifer was the fairest of the angels. Conflating the Greek/Roman underworld, Satan, Lucifer, (meaning bringer of light), the fire they use in their service and the Peacock Angel; we kinda sorta have devil worshipers if you are bone headed stupid.

Thanks, Beak, for the Easter wishes...I'm looking forward to tomorrow......lovely morning services and then family in the afternoon. The weather here's a little cooler than usual, but that's fine..I like it.

Happy Easter to all of you who commemorate this special day and are smart enough to hang here at Beak's great blog.

Let the egg salad week begin!

The Devil wouldn't be all that appealing if he was hideous and sinister looking.

Nah. Satan is the most beautiful being you can look at without dying from the glory.

Beak,
Thank you for extending Easter greetings.

It's freezing cold here the past few days. No open-toed shoes for me today!

Even here in Florida, I'm wearing closed toe shoes! And a sweater(actually sweater set, brrrrr)!
Thank you, Beaker! I love Resurrection Sunday, Easter comes from Ishtar(Ashtarte) a babylonian-chaldean fertility goddess, yuck!
Lucifer was created as the most beautiful angel, his clothing was jeweled(peacock tail feathers?) and since his name means "light-bearer" the worship of fire fits.
Interestingly enough, peacocks have horrid screeches and Lucifer lead the angelic choirs...an indication of how G*D hears him now?
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

HE IS RISEN!
HE IS RISEN INDEED!
HALLELUJAH!

Thanks Beak. We plan a day with family and a day of celebration to remember the resurrection of our LORD!

Happy Easter, beak!
I know you're not Christian and neither am I, but what the heck.
Although my dear sweet lapsed Catholic mother once said I was Christian by 'association' because I went to Catholic high school and have Catholic relatives. LOL I had to remind her of that little thing called baptism.
Its freezing here! Feels like Winter again.
