But who was the original Valentine? What does the name Valentine mean?



Valentine comes from the Latin Valentinus, which derives from valensto be strong, powerful, mighty. The Bible describes a man with a similar title: And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD (Gen. 10:8-9). He was said to have hunted with bow and arrow.



As mentioned, the Romans celebrated Lupercalia to honor the hunter god Lupercus. To the Greeks, from whom the Romans had copied most of their mythology, Lupercus was known as Pan, the god of light. The Phoenicians worshipped the same deity as Baal, the sun god. Baal was one of many names or titles for Nimrod, a mighty hunter, especially of wolves. He was also the founder and first lord of Babel (Gen. 10:10-12). Defying God, Nimrod was the originator of the Babylonian Mystery Religion, whose mythologies have been copied by the Egyptians, the Greeks, the Romans and a multitude of other ancient peoples. Under different names or titlesPan, Lupercus, Saturn, OsirisNimrod is the strong man and hunter-warrior god of the ancients.



But what does the heart symbol have to do with a day honoring Nimrod/Valentine?



The title Baal means lord or master, and is mentioned throughout the Bible as the god of pagans. God warned His people not to worship or even tolerate the ways of Baal (Nimrod). In ancient Chaldean (the language of the Babylonians), bal, which is similar to Baal, meant, heart. This is where the Valentine heart symbol originated.



Now notice the name Cupid. It comes from the Latin verb cupere, meaning to desire. Cupid was the son of Venus, Roman goddess of beauty and love. Also known as Eros in ancient Greece, he was the son of Aphrodite. According to myth, he was responsible for impregnating numerous goddesses and mortals. Cupid was a child-like archer (remember, Nimrod was a skilled archer). Mythology describes Cupid as having both a cruel and happy personality. He would use his invisible arrows, tipped with gold, to strike unsuspecting men and women, causing them to fall madly in love. He did not do this for their benefit, but to drive them crazy with intense passion, to make their lives miserable, and to laugh at the results.



Many of the gods of the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Assyrians and others were modeled after one manNimrod.



But what does this have to do with us today? Why should we be concerned with what happened in the past?
