🤔Why would they lie about New Years📆?
📖 Daniel 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
📅When Roman Emperor Julius Caesar declared January 1 as the world’s New Year’s day based on a treacherous deity, the connection could not have been more relevant. Specifically, the god he worshiped was two-faced, a fitting metaphor of the flip-flopping that marked New Year’s day through the centuries.👉Caesar’s idol was named Janus, from which we get our month January.👈 The emperor thought his deity would be the suitable portal to the new year, as one of his faces looked forward to a new year, the other backward. That’s the sanitized version of New Year’s. The messy and convoluted history of the January 1 New Year’s observance reveals chronological confusion amid politicial intrigue, race hatred, and fuzzy math all in an attempt to improve upon the Biblical calendar as inspired by our Creator. The January 1st new year is an on-and-off tradition. Surprisingly, January 1 has been celebrated as a holiday by Western nations for only about the past 400 years. The earliest record of a new year celebration is believed to have been in Mesopotamia, c. 2000 B.C.E., and was celebrated around the time of the vernal equinox in mid-March.
💥Also, tie in April Fools with this.. New Year's Day Ancient cultures, including those of the Romans and Hindus, celebrated New Year's Day on or around April 1. It closely follows the vernal equinox (March 20th or March 21st.) In medieval times, much of Europe celebrated March 25, the Feast of Annunciation, as the beginning of the new year.💡 (Hmmm what season happens around March?) 🌱🌼🏵🌱
💡In 1582, Pope Gregory XIII ordered a new calendar (the Gregorian Calendar) to replace the old Julian Calendar. The new calendar called for New Year's Day to be celebrated on none other than👉 Jan. 1. That year, France adopted the reformed calendar and shifted New Year's day to Jan. 1 The gist, you were called A Fool if you honored The Most High word, and celebrated the true start of the New Year. The 1st day of the first month (Abib/Nisan) was the first day of the biblical year which begins on the new moon [month] of our March / April and coincides with the latter rains (Joel 2:23).
