CALENDAR 1. A system of reckoning time divisions, esp. in years, months, weeks, and days.  2. A table showing such divisions usually for a year.  The day and the year are based on solar (sun) time.

Due to a slight inaccuracy in the Julian Calendar, the Gregorian Calendar was adopted and became universal as a measure of civil time.  The Julian calendar is referred to as Old Style (O.S.) and the Gregorian as New Style (N.S.).

One day = the length of time it takes the earth to make one complete revolution on its own axis.

One month = originally the time it takes the moon to complete all of its phases but has been changed so that each month falls during the same season every year.

One year
= the approximate time it takes the earth to make one complete revolution around the sun.

Leap year = a year having 366 days with February 29 as the extra day.

God of Israel gave a name only to the 7th day of the week, which he calls the Sabbath Day (the Day of Rest); the other days he numbered. (Ex. 20:11, Deut. 5:12-14)  Man gave names to the days of the week, and the months of the year, which they named after Pagan deities.  The deities of the week are equivalent to the Sun, Moon and 5 major planets. The months of the year are named after the pagan gods of Rome, Greece, Ireland and other European nations.

The word Pagan means a heathen, one who is not a Christian, Moslem, or Jew.  Pagan and heathen are both applied to nonmonotheistic (those who believe in many gods) peoples.  Pagan specifically refers to one of the ancient polytheistic peoples especially the Greeks and the Romans.  Heathen is also applied to any of the peoples regarded as primitive idolaters.

The God of Israel, Jesus Christ is the True and Living God. Jesus and the Father are the members of the Godhead.There are no other gods!  The so-called gods of Paganism are man-made and are not real.

Please read what the Word (Jesus Christ) has spoken:

Acts 4:
10.  Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11.  This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. 12.  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Isaiah 48:
11.  For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? and I will not give my glory unto another.12.  Hearken unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he; I am the first, I also am the last. 13.  Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spanned the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together.

Exodus 34:
14.  For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:

Exodus 20:
5.  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 6.  And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.7.  Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

I Chronicles 16:
23.  Sing unto the Lord, all the earth; shew forth from day to day his salvation.24.  Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works among all nations. 25.  For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods. 26.  For all the gods of the people are idols: but the Lord made the heavens.

I Chronicles 29:
10.  Wherefore David blessed the Lord before all the congregation: and David said, Blessed be thou, Lord God of Israel our father, for ever and ever. 11.  Thine, O Lord is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above all.






Peace in Jesus name!
