During the festival, the pairs of children danced and played together , the girl that was assigned to each young man would be his sexual companion during the coming year . This is a clear practice of fornication , which is one of the many things that displease Almighty Yahweh - revelation 21:8 , revelation 22:15 , 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 , 18 , 1 Corinthians 7:1-2 . Although the lottery for women had been banned from the church, the mid-February holiday in commemoration of St.Valentine was still used by men to seek the affection of women . It became tradition for the men to give the ones they admired handwritten messages of affection containing Valentine's name . This pagan and idolatrous festival , after so many years cycled through the years and to hide its true devilish and abominable meaning it hid under the name ..................

People say it is a day where in you should show / share love to one another . Shouldn't everyday be a day where you show love to one another? or is it that on this day only you show love and when the day is over you wait for the next year until you can show love again ? IS LOVE SOMETHINGS THAT COMES ANNUALLY? Love is only placed as the true meaning of this day to cover up its pagan history . It is a custom of the people in the world to celebrate this day and what did Yahweh tell us in Jerimiah 10:2-3 , he strictly commanded us to learn NOT the ways of the nations .......... for the customs of the people are vanity . If persons think of this day to be so special because it deals with love shouldn't Yahweh be apart of it ? , shouldn't he be the most appreciated , after all he is love (1 john 4:16) and love comes from him , without him there is no love.According to John 3:16 - ' for Yahweh so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son , that whoever believes on him should not perish but have everlasting life.' It wasn't that we loved Yahweh but he loved us so if he had not first shown us love we would have not known what love is . Inorder to show love to someone or something you must first love Yahweh - ( Mattew 22:34 ) because love comes from him - ( 1 john 4:7-8 ). How can you show love to someone or something if you don't have it ?
As it name clearly shows this day is simply about a man whose name was Valentine . Legends says that a Roman Emperor, Cladius the second, had forbidden his men to marry , he wanted them to be heartless and fearless soldiers free of wives and girlfriends . Claudius decreed that no marriages should be celebrated and that all engagements be broken off immediately, but one of the christian priests didn't obey the emperor's edict . The priest (whose name was Father Valentine ) secretly performed marriages in and around the city of Rome . Found out not too long later , Valentine was imprisoned where he languished and died. It was said that devoted friends buried him in the church of St.Praxedes on the fourteenth of February , 270 AD. To the people Valentine was a kind and wise person who had a lot of friends ,they begged the emperor to free him and sent flowers to jailed Valentine. Here is where the idol faunus comes in , by sending flowers this is where the worship of faunus ( the idol of nature ) is acknowledged. Valentine's friends sent him flowers and wrote letters to him ; and this practice continued even until this day.
By celebrating this day we are not showing love to one another we are showing love and great respect to idols ; which is very displeasing to Yahweh ( Deuteronomy 4:15, Deuteronomy 5:7-8, Exodus 23:24 , Deuteronomy 6:14-15 , Deuteronomy 27:15 , Psalm 96:5 , 1 John 5:21 , Revelation 22:14 ) .
