Exposing The Truth About Easter

On Easter morning families wake up early to celebrate the resurrection of Christ and attend a church service. Others go out to brunch with their loved ones. People participate in an Easter egg hunt or surprising their kids

On Easter morning families wake up early to celebrate the resurrection of Christ and attend a church service. Others go out to brunch with their loved ones. People participate in an Easter egg hunt or surprising their kids with a giant chocolate bunny. And most of us are left confused, what do bunnies who lay eggs have to do with a religious holiday?

The truth might surprise you. These childhood characters are not random at all, and were not created by some greeting card company. In this Spiritual Equipping Broadcast on Wednesday, March 27th at 8 pm ET/7 pm CT, Dani will expose what these symbols really mean, and how our ignorance may effect our children.

  • Learn the true history behind Easter
  • Learn how a Christian holiday does (or DOESN’T) relate
  • Decide if this is really the sort of thing kids should be exposed to
  • How to handle teaching your kids what these holidays truly mean

    Thank you Dani for exposing the truth!!! I have read that passage from Jeremiah over and over and have not connected the dots before! I have always known that we should be celebrating Easter and Christmas in a different way but have never been able to explain WHY before now!

    thank you for the valuable information i heard somebody trying to teach about the origin of Easter but i did not understand , Dani was able to go straight to the point and I am grateful for that I will share this information with my church. Churches need to teach about this, many of us are not aware . I have been saved for a long time and I did not know the truth behind easter
    Dani keep up the good work and may God continue using you in a mighty way love always Michelle

    Dani… thank you for praying and your message about being set free from our EYGPT. I know God has answered our prayers… tomorrow I have a court date for the oldest of my adopted children, that I had to have removed due to dangerous behaviour he was acting out from his past. I believe God desires to bring him back home to His promised land from captivity, but He must allow God to work in HIS heart first, and at this time he is still saying he doesn’t want to come home, because he is afraid of the truth coming into the light, and the sin and shame, which have already been forgiven. I am praying for God to move the mountains of unbelieve in his heart and that all would see God work a miracle, that He will come home, as he is the one who originally prayed to God to be here, because of God. Thank you for ALL you do for us! I will be praying for you and your trip with Cabe, Roman, and Micah and for all your orphans, that they will each know the same peace you have prayed over me and my children, and that above all they would each know the God of adoption, as their heavenly ABBA in a real, tangible, living relationship. Thank YOU for your boldness, your courage as a Princess Warrior and your humble servants heart! May God continue to meet your every need, exceedingly, abundantly, above and beyond all I could ever ask or think, and multiply the blessings you so abundantly sow, that you may continue to be a flaming, consuming bonfire of light, for HIS namesake, glory and honor, that many will be saved for such a time as this and consecrate themselves to God almighty, through the blood and resurection of Jesus Christ, that a sweeping revival may continually increase in these evil and wicked days we live in, that many would be set free from bondage of captivity to serve our risen savior, as joint heirs in Christ! God’s abundant blessings my sister! In Jesus name I pray!

    I stopped celebrating Haloween a couple years ago with my son despite all the mocking from people around me. We felt rejected and alone. I did not know why all I know is the more I read the word the more evil Haloween felt to me. God reveals things we don’t know about. It was very difficult the first year. Haloween was made to look so cute even in the Christian school my son went to. It was only by the grace of God that I got to ask him to forgive me for my ignorance of thinking it was about candy and cute outfits. I did not want my son to be picked on as he was already being picked on for standing for Christ. So now tonight since something was bothering me and I did not know what it was I cried out to God. I told him Lord I need you to help me. Can you please take this hurt that is inside of me. Later I listened to Dani tonight and I felt a sudden peace because as soon as she said God’s word “you will know the truth and the truth will set you free”, I realized even though I have been thinking I am doing all the right things(not perfect just the best I can lol) and how this is a great week on how God helped the people of Israel and how Jesus died on the cross for us, I bought two bags of Easter eggs. I don’t even know why I just did it. It is the hidden things that God says in jeremaih 33:3 “Call unto me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things you know not”. The holy spirit spoke through Dani again and I got to repent. I am going to the store tommorrow to return the Easter eggs and if they don’t take them it is going into the trash can. Thank you Jesus! Dani I want to thank you for your boldness and your compassion all at the same time. God loves you and yes the roofs for the orphans is complete in Jesus name. What a revelation why would I give any credit to eggs and bunnies. Never celebrated this till I came to America and then felt bad that my son was not celebrating eggs when all the other families were. I asked my son to forgive me and we both told God we are sorry. He says he will be glad to go back tommorrow to return the eggs with me. Thank you Dani. If you live in America leaving the eggs behind is not an easy thing to do especially if you have kids. ( I moved here and it was hard for me, it looked innocent). Just like Santa and Haloween, dropping bunnies and eggs for Easter out of your life might not be as hard once you listen to this teaching. Thank you Jesus.

      I am impressed you would stand up for the truth. May God bless you richly.

    Easter has nothing to do with the resurrection of JESUS CHRIST. In Acts 12:4, the word easter was a mistranslation of the Greek word pascha, meaning Passover. So as Christians, we are to celebrate the resurrection of JESUS CHRIST – all the time – instead of the this commercial, pagan day the world calls Easter.

  6. Londa Harpster April 5, 2012

    My children listened to this and expressed their shock and disgust for what Easter really is today. We have always asked our children to refer to Resurrection Day rather than Easter. We’ve also had one egg hunt that I can remember in more than 20 years. It’s so funny that we’ve leaned toward giving them a chocolate cross and skipping the church egg hunt because it never “felt” right. NOW WE KNOW WHY! It makes me sick to know the truth, but at the same time, it’s extremely empowering. Great teaching!

    Matthew 6

    19“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.20“But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal;21for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

    22“The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light.23“But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!

    24“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.

    Thanks so much for sharing Dani, I agree with you and heard the same message before from others. Sometimes its hard for people to digest the truth.

  9. EveT March 27, 2013

    I really appreciate the message tonight. I truly believe everything that Dani said and I pray that God will continue to reveal the truth behind the man-made holidays. Thank you God for Dani Johnson! If you really want to know the true meaning of Easter, this is a must listen.

  10. Chandra Kratko March 28, 2013

    I don’t know if maybe it was a very important message for me to hear or what but this (to me anyway) was one of the best Spiritual Equipping messages I’ve heard. Especially one of the callers I related to and something I needed to hear personally. Thank you.

  11. Linda R March 31, 2013

    Dani is right about easter to bad others dont see the real truth about easter.

  12. Michael Beresford March 30, 2013

    Its a shame that you can write this on here, how can being taught to be a wonderful human being, being good to others, giving money to charity, and achieving in life through work and relationships, and generating wealth and gaining freedom be a cult??

    think on…..
