Summer Solstice: Once a Godly Sign, Now a Demonic Bondage

(Pixabay/Nanou22)

This week on June 21, the summer begins on the summer solstice.

Astronomically, the summer solstice is the day when the sun reaches its highest point in the sky over the northern hemisphere. It is also the longest day of the year. The opposite solstice, the winter solstice, is the day when the sun is lowest in the heavens and the night is longest. The other seasonal markers, the spring and fall equinoxes, occur when the sun is at midpoint, and day and night are of equal length.

These important calendar dates are important in God's religious calendar. The first three Hebrew feasts, pointing to Christ's death and resurrection, occur near the spring equinox, while the last three feasts, picturing the second coming of Christ, occur near the fall equinox. The spring and winter are associated with the appearance of Christ in Hosea 6:3, and the story of Christ's Advent begins with the conception of John the Baptist, which is believed to have occurred near the winter solstice in 7 B.C. Summer is associated with the Second Coming of Christ, as we are told that the summer is near when the fig tree (Israel) comes to life (Matt 24:32).

Sadly, these important spiritual times were hijacked by the ancient followers of the religion of the false messiah, the pagans. The winter solstice came to symbolize the birth of the false messiah, and structures like New Grange in Ireland are aligned with the sun on the winter solstice. Pagans celebrated the spring equinox as the beginning of the year, as it was in God's calendar, and celebrated the harvest at the fall equinox. The summer solstice, when the sun is highest, marked the power of their pagan false messiahs, and temples like Stonehenge were aligned with the sun on the summer solstice.

In modern times, the believers in the New Age or godhood religion (i.e. we are all gods), have latched onto the Pagan calendar in an attempt to get in touch with the spirits behind Paganism. They have also tried to revitalize the ancient Pagan sites with their New Age religion. They can be seen at Stonehenge, New Grange, Chitzen Itza, Angkor Wat, Chaco Canyon and other sites, trying to bring back the demon spirits that dominated these civilizations. And, of course, the high holy day for many is the summer solstice.

As Christians, we need to pray for those poor New Age souls who are falling into demonic bondage. We also need to remember that dates like the summer solstice were created by God for His glory, and we can celebrate them as part of God's prophetic calendar.

Yes, the summer is near, and we should be telling folks the real meaning: The return of Christ is near.
