Although birthdays are regarded and treated like a Holiday, the truth of the matter is that we are NOT supposed to celebrate our Birthdays! Birthdays are not a part of our heritage; but a learned behavior that was given to us by the other nations, and something we have embraced during our captivity.
 Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways.
Heathen Kings of the Bible that required death on their Birthdays:
 Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thy head from off thee, and shall hang thee on a tree; and the birds shall eat thy flesh from off thee.
 And it came to pass the third day, which was Pharaoh's BIRTHDAY, that he made a FEAST unto all his servants: and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants.
 And he restored the chief butler unto his butlership again; and he gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand:
 But he hanged the chief baker: as Joseph had interpreted to them.
 But when Herod's BIRTHDAY was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod.
 Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask.
 And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John Baptist's head in a charger.
 And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the oath's sake, and them which sat with him AT MEAT (Dinner/Feast), he commanded it to be given her.
 And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.
 And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the damsel: and she brought it to her mother.
The Works of Flavius Josephus concerning Birthdays:
"Nay, indeed, the law does not permit us to make festivals at the births of our children, and thereby afford occasion of drinking to excess..."
- Flavius Josephus, Against Apion, Book 2, section 26
Job curses his own Birthday: *s/n (Job’s kids sin.. Job ch. 1)
 After this opened Job his mouth, and cursed his day.
 And Job spake, and said,
 Let the day perish wherein I was born, and the night in which it was said, There is a man child conceived.
 Let that day be darkness; let not God regard it from above, neither let the light shine upon it.
 Let darkness and the shadow of death stain it; let a cloud dwell upon it; let the blackness of the day terrify it.
 As for that night, let darkness seize upon it; let it not be joined unto the days of the year, let it not come into the number of the months.
To wish or invoke evil, calamity, injury, or destruction upon.
To be destroyed or die, esp in an untimely way.
King Solomon tells us that a man’s death is better than the day he was born:
 A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one's birth.
 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 Christ.
Is There A Connection We Haven't Been Making Here?
Have We Been Teaching Our Children Witchcraft?
Birthday Cake, & Candles:
Worldwide, baking cakes for the "Queen of Heaven" (Asherah) was entangled in birth day celebrations (Jeremiah 7:18). This provokes The Most High to anger.
By blowing-out candles and making a secret wish, the celebrant performs IDOLATRY, because the wish is to their spirits, a spell performed by Wiccans (you know, witchcraft). The candles are part of the fire ritual; Pagans believed the solar presence to be fire. The rising smoke of the extinguished candles carried the secret wish into the skies.
How do you think The Most High likes it when we teach our children to do these things, or propagate the custom of them? How about if we think of the wish as being a prayer to YaHaWaH? This is not going to be acceptable to YaHaWaH, no matter how we wrap it in our minds. Worshipping YaHaWaH in a Pagan format is the main problem we have today.
All of these things are, in fact, witchcraft. Knowledge is increasing, so Satan’s tricks (schemes) are no longer secrets.
CONE OF POWER — The Llewellyn Encyclopedia tells us:
“In the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn this was described as a 'vortex of energy' and was built up via circumambulation.”
The cone of power is the name given to the union of witches’ forces gathered around the circle, aimed at a common goal. In parts of ancient Syria, the cone was a symbol of Astarte (Asherah).
The day of one's birth is central to Astrology, and originates from the worship of the host of heaven. It is devil worship, because it is Nimrod worship. The basis of establishing a person's "sign" is to learn the moment of their birth. Each year, one's birthday is the most important day of the year to all witches.
Birthdays can be tracked in every culture all the way back to Babel's Astrology, the source of all sorcery.
Our Scriptures mention birthdays, but do not teach us to observe the ritual aspects like cakes, coned hats, blowing out candles, or giving gifts to the celebrant; the origin of the practice (Paganism) is why it is idolatrous. If witches hold the day to be important (while Scripture is silent about the day of ones birth being important), and the historical development of birth day celebrations comes from Pagan origins, then we should have no participation whatsoever in them. We should not encourage it by sending cards or gifts. Many ask about this topic, since Scripture doesn't specifically condemn the observance of birthdays. Scripture doesn't specifically tell us not to observe Sun-day, Christmas, Halloween, or Easter either. The fact that a behavior has a Pagan origin is our cue to not perform it....
 Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise.
 Thou shalt not do so unto the LORD thy God: for every abomination to the LORD, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods.
