Well, the Biblical new year has already started! It took us extra time to make the conversions to get the Bible reading schedule online, but it is finally working again!
It is exciting to do things God’s way! All around the globe we are hearing about the spring thaw and blessings and everyone is feeling as if the new year has arrived, in spite of the calendars they use! God says that this is actually when the calendar is supposed to begin and it used to be that most calendars started around this time. Of course politics and cultic religions always have to mess with things that work to force their own ways upon people, in hopes they will forget God (yes Roman Catholic leadership included), so calendars have rejected this wonderful time of spring for the start of the new year and even the Jewish calendar starts their new year in the fall, just the opposite of God’s command! Interesting.
So, we again persist and resist the world wide trend and go with a Bible reading schedule that follows God’s instructions for the first month and the first day of the month. It is thrilling reading the old diaries of the early Christian Americans that sought to remove all forms of idolatry from their lives and so could not use the day or month names in their diaries and businesses records. They too had to simply call things what they were: “Third month, 2nd day of first week” etc. Of course they used the spring time as the first month as do we on this Bible reading schedule.
If anyone wants to join us, we use Skype each day and could easily add you to our family readings. It would actually be fun to have others join us and expand our “family.” Just email us, and we will make the arrangements. We meet each day at 7:30 pm Pacific Time Zone. It works out great for those east of us in the later time zones, since it tends to be later for them and easier to do.
Anyway, join the reading program at the very least! Would to God that all who profess belief in the name and teaching of the Lord Jesus Christ would read the Bible with us each day! The world’s system would be on shaky ground!
