Seeing the old year out and the new year in

This time of the year is a festive season, with Christmas just passed and preparations for New Years’ eve celebrations next on the minds of many.

1st January 2018 starts a brand new year. The calendar is the time keeper for what we do in life. The calendar determines for us – those who use the Gregorian calendar - when we see the old year out, and the new year in.

But do we ever stop to give consideration as to how time began? For the Christian, whose foundation of belief is the Bible, we believe God created time.

It is Unmistakably the Season of  Christmas.

Have you been looking forward to the Christmas Season with all the Christmas cheer this time of the year brings – Christmas light displays, Christmas songs in all the stores and shops or maybe the carols by candlelight? Would you be interested to learn more about the true meaning of Christmas? My wife and I some fifty years ago made the decision not to observe Christmas. Does this surprise you? We were raised in Christian families and Christmas had been a part of our religious celebration but we had taken for granted that Jesus Christ – our Lord and Saviour – was actually in Christmas.

A shadow of things to come

Are you amongst those who are genuinely seeking the truth or a church that is teaching the true beliefs of the Bible? Have you been challenged regarding the origin of christian festivals such as Christmas and Easter? You may have heard or read that these festivals were introduced into christian worship in Rome around the 4th century AD. Given their late establishment, this obviously meant that neither Jesus nor any of the apostles kept these days.

If so, then what days did they keep as festivals? What are the Festivals of God?

Feasts of the Lord

Feasts of the Lord by Bill Bradford

Are you making excuses to not keep the annual Holy Days of God? They are inconvenient to your work schedule, holiday time or interrupt other of your commitments? God’s commands for His people will always be in conflict with the way of life the world demands. What would your commitments be that God’s commands can be ignored?

  • Judgment on Egypt's Gods

    Judgment on Egypt's Gods

    From a biblical standpoint, this is a very significant time of year. It reminds us of ancient Israel’s miraculous deliverance from Egyptian slavery, of the Passover commemoration, of the symbols Jesus Christ instituted as the ultimate Passover “Lamb of God” who gave His life for the sins of the whole world, and the fact that He is the “Firstborn from the dead” showing us how we, too, may receive eternal life in God’s family. The articles in this issue cover these and other themes important to those who take the Bible seriously. We hope you’ll read them and take them seriously too!
