The Antichrist Calendar
Ever more increasingly, calendars, whether traditional printed calendars, or on various computer calendars or data programs, show weeks that run from "Monday to Sunday" - from the Biblical second day of the week to the Biblical first day of the week. It seems to be the last step in the world's attempt to deny the Creator of the true week of days, which run from the first day of the week to the seventh. In so doing, it also denies the Christian sanctity of the true Seventh Day.
"2:2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. 2:3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made." (Genesis 2:2-3 KJV)
By contradicting and denying the true Seventh Day, the "Monday to Sunday" calendar is also denying the Son of God Himself because it was the Christ Who created the week that began with the true first day and ended with the true seventh day. Jesus Christ created His Sabbath Day (see Why Observe The True Sabbath?). The "Monday to Sunday" calendar is blatantly antichrist.
"1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God. 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made ... 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth." (John 1:1-3,14 KJV)
The Days Daze Of The Roman Calendar
We must live in the world such as it is, but that does not mean that we must wallow in the blasphemous mire of such things as the "days daze" after we know the Truth. Calling the first day the first day, and the seventh day the seventh day, is not difficult.
Consider also the surprising-to-many pagan origin of the names of the days of the week:
Dies solis means the day of the sun, from which we get Sunday. Sun worship was marked by the use of the halo, or nimbus, which originated with the pagan Greeks and Romans to represent their sun god, Helios. Later artists adopted it for use in Christian images. The halo is actually just the sun behind the person's head.
Dies lunae (from which comes the word lunar), means moon day, from which we get the shortened version, Monday.
Dies Martis, means mars day, after Mars, the Roman god of war. The day was known to the pagan Germans after their own god of war, Tiw (pronounced too) as Tiw's (pronounced tooz) day, from which we get Tuesday.
Dies mercuri, means mercury day. Woden (pronounced woe-den) was the Germanic version of the pagan god mercury, and they named the day Woden's day, from which we get Wednesday.
Dies Jovis means Jove's day, or Jupiter's day. Thor was the Germanic version of the god Jupiter, so they called the day Thor's Day, from which we got Thursday.
Dies Veneris means Venus Day. The Germanic version of this female god was Frigg, or Freyja (pronounced fry-yah), so they called the day Freyja day, from which we got Friday.
Dies Saturni means Saturn day, from which came Saturday. The pagans also observed their Saturnalia festival in the last week of December, a time when work ceased, gifts were exchanged, and slaves feasted with their masters.
Fact Finder: The Roman "Babylon" renumbered the days of the week to accommodate their idolatry. Did they also renumber the Ten Commandments to accommodate their idolatry?
