SUMMER SOLSTICE CELEBRATIONS: SIGN OF THE TIMES

What is the summer solstice?
The summer solstice occurs during a hemisphere’s summer. This is the northern solstice in the northern hemisphere and the southern solstice in the southern hemisphere. Depending on the shift of the calendar, the summer solstice occurs some time between June 20 and June 22 in the northern hemisphere and between December 20 and December 23 each year in the southern hemisphere.
The summer solstice is also known as Midsummer.
Midsummer, also known as St John’s Day, or Litha, is the period of time centered upon the summer solstice, and more specifically the Northern European celebrations that accompany the actual solstice or take place on a day between June 19 and June 25 and the preceding evening.
By a great and random coincidence, the first International Yoga Day is being celebrated on the summer solstice as well.
Increased paganism, witchcraft and sorcery are signs of the end times. IN FACT, the Bible says very clearly that the dragon (Satan) deceives the whole world and that the whole world will worship him.
“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?”
“And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world:”
“And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
But the greatest deception of the end times will be someone who leads an apostate church which looks very much like Christianity (a lamb)–but can be recognized because it speaks like the dragon (Satan).
“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do”
So the increasingly-public celebrations of pagan, witches, druids and others hostile to Christianity should not surprise any who believe the truth of God’s Word.
PAGANISM, WITCHCRAFT AND MORE
Professor Ronald Hutton, an expert on paganism at Bristol University, said he believed there were at least 100,000 practising pagans in Britain.
Who exactly is it who celebrates the summer solstice?
In short, non-Christians.
Or rather, those who make no pretense of being Christians. Regardless of the label, they are all brand names used by the dragon.
There will be those in the apostate churches who will moan the “passing of Christianity” and the rise of paganism and witchcraft, but the churches lost Christianity long ago.
Today, the centers of occultism and witchcraft are the apostate churches. Which is worse abomination: the witch who openly declares she is a witch?
Or the apostate church-goers who mimics much of what the witch does and calls herself a “Christian”?
Who commits the greater sin: those openly celebrating paganism or those in the apostate churches which do the same things under the pretense of honoring Jesus Christ?

Yes, paganism and witchcraft are on the rise. But it is a sign of the times and true Christians should rejoice because it’s more evidence (as if any were needed) of the truth of God’s Word.
“Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.”
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
