Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth;” and it was so. GENESIS 1:14-15
Welcome to SEASONS, a place to explore the calendar. The apostle Paul taught that Christians have great liberty with regard to celebrations, holidays and holy days:
“One person esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind. He who observes the day, observes it to the Lord; and he who does not observe the day, to the Lord he does not observe it. . . But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you show contempt for your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. For it is written: ‘As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God.’ So then each of us shall give account of himself to God” (Romans 14:5-6, 10-12).
Throughout the year, we’ll highlight the Christian calendar as well as the feasts and festivals of Israel in the Bible and as celebrated today. The first feature in SEASONS will be available before sundown on September 9 for the New Year 5779.
