3-20-2017 Change Of Seasons

“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 NKJV).  We still have “seasons,” “days and years” because of these heavenly lights. It didn’t take “millions or billions” of years for these heavenly lights to evolve, nor for seasons, days and years to evolve. There is no scientific fact that supports the unproven “evolutionary theory.” After the flood in Noah’s day, God said, “While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, Cold and heat, Winter and summer, And day and night Shall not cease” (Genesis 8:22 NKJV). Seasons change as God said, but without “evolution!”

11-21-2016 Global Cooling

“Let all the earth fear the LORD; Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him. For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast” (Psalm 33:8-9 NKJV).  God is “awe-some,” not some car, good food, nice clothes, or a store bargain! No one has created from nothing, like He did, or organized it by command as He has. Daniel said, God “changes the times and the seasons” (Daniel 2:21 NKJV). There is no “global warming” unless God has decreed it, not some politician with fake “science.” He said, “While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, Cold and heat, Winter and summer, And day and night Shall not cease” (Genesis 8:22 NKJV).  The earth still remains, so “globally,” there are seasons.  After an extended summer with drought, our North American part of the “globe” is having “winter,” just as God decrees!

3-24-2015 Man-Made Tradition: Religious Seasons

In Lystra, Paul told idolaters that God “did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good, gave us rain from heaven and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness” (Acts 14:17 NKJV). After the Flood in Noah’s day, yearly seasonal cycles were ordained when God said, “While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, Cold and heat, Winter and summer, And day and night Shall not cease” (Genesis 8:22 NKJV). But when Galatian Christians made seasons religious observances, Paul wrote, “You observe days and months and seasons and years. I am afraid for you, lest I have labored for you in vain” (Galatians 4:10-11 NKJV). They were turning the way of Christ back “again to the weak and beggarly elements” from which they had escaped by obeying Christ (Galatians 4:9 NKJV).

Of coincidences, solstice, etc.

solstice, seasons• We’ve often posted Hugh Fulford’s News and Views here on TFR, with his permission. Now Dale Jenkins has set up a blog for our good brother. Since his ezine will now be available online, you may follow it from there, if you like.

• In his fine program, 100 Days of Scripture, Jon Warnes has grouped the Bible verses by subject. Today, he starts a new, short group on sin:

“Sin” Verses
Day 24 Romans 3:23 (June 21)
Day 25 Ezekial 18:20 (June 22)
Day 26 Romans 6:23 (June 23)

This fits nicely with my “God With Us” Devotional today with the longish title, “What about the Indian in the middle of the jungle who never heard the gospel?” Unplanned. Was a coincidence.

• Like yesterday’s coincidence, when Ron T. posted about division in the family because of Christ, and my devotional was on division caused by ignorance.

• Light is finally appearing in the windows. Our daytime is short these days, shortest today, right? I never understand these things, solstice, equinox, seasons, daylight savings time. Not even after reading about it. I’m just glad to wake up in the morning, be it early or late, to be alive, hungry, thirsty, ambitious, zealous for the things of God.
