The Deceptions of Carnival: PART 1

The Deceptions of Carnival: PART 1 of 3

We’re almost at that time of “Labor Day,” so it’s a good time to start releasing the origins of man.

Happening TODAY in Toronto, Canada! Caribana which the world knows it as “Carnival”. Carnival originated as a Pagan Festival in ancient Egypt which was subsequently celebrated by the Greeks and then the Romans. The popular festival was adopted by the Roman Catholic Christian church in Europe as the festival of Carne Vale. The Carnival festival was transported to the Caribbean by the European Slave Traders.

In the Catholic calendar carne vale, farewell to flesh, is a feast celebrated on the Sunday (Dimanche Gras), Monday (Lundi Gras) and Tuesday (Mardi Gras) before Ash Wednesday and marks the beginning of Lent and fasting.In Britain Mardi Gras is Shrove Tuesday, or Pancake Day. Carnival was originally a pagan spring festival celebrated by the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans. The Carnival was adapted by the Catholic Church in Europe.

There is Carnival in Europe today, mainly in Catholic southern Europe in Spain, France, Italy, Portugal and southern Germany (Bavaria), Carnival in Venice being the most well known.

Acts 17:30 (KJVA) And the times of this ignorance the Most High winked at; but “NOW” commandeth all men every where to repent:
