Groundhog Day Page
~Celebrated Every February 2nd~
"The Pharisees and Sadducees came to Jesus and tested him by asking him to show them
a sign from heaven. He replied, "When evening comes, you say, `It will be fair weather,
for the sky is red,' and in the morning, `Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red
and overcast.' You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot
interpret the signs of the times. A wicked and adulterous generation looks for
a miraculous sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah."
Jesus then left them and went away."
the Groundhog see his shadow this year???
Will we have 6 more weeks of WINTER!!!
The Lord laid on my heart to share with you what Jesus said about knowing the seasons and the signs of the end times. We need to read the Word of God and make sure we are ready for the return of Jesus.
People today depend on many things. Some read their horoscope faithfully. Others would rather call a psychics network for advice. But we can pray and ask the Lord to direct our steps and paths.
What do you depend on to
help you make major decisions in your life?
Can you read the signs of
the times and seasons?
Did you know that Jesus will
be coming again?
"They therefore, when they were come together, asked him, saying, Lord, dost thou at this time restore the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know times or seasons, which the Father hath set within His own authority." Acts 1:6,7
"But of that day or that hour knoweth no one, not even the angels in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father." Mark 13:32
"Therefore be ye also ready; for in an hour that ye think not the Son of man cometh" Matthew 24:44
"looking for and earnestly desiring the coming of the day of God, by reason of which the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?" 2 Peter 2:12
"looking for the blessed hope and appearing of the glory of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;" Titus 2:13
Jesus said: "But when the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the angels with him, then shall he sit on the throne of his glory: and before him shall be gathered all the nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as the shepherd separateth the sheep from the goats;" Matthew 25: 31 - 32
Jesus said: "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I come again, and will receive you unto myself; that where I am, [there] ye may be also." John 14:3
When Jesus left this earth to go to prepare a place for us, His leaving was not unnoticed or unwitnessed. Read about how he left. Look at what the angels say about the way He will return.
"And when he had said these things, as they were looking, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they were looking stedfastly into heaven as he went, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; who also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye looking into heaven? this Jesus, who was received up from you into heaven shall so come in like manner as ye beheld him going into heaven." Acts 1: 9,10,11
You should read the whole Chapter of Acts 1
Jesus told us to be ready, to be prepared and to know the seasons.
saith unto them, Say not ye, There
are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold I
say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields;
for they are white already to harvest."
Here are some scriptures that talk about the SEASONS:
And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the
heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be
for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and
Now that we have all this modern technology and the satellite pictures we don't really need the Ground Hog. Do we?
are less perfect hibernators. In the southern United
States they remain active all through the year. In the
North, black bears hibernate when winter comes, but when
the cubs are born, their mothers care for them and nurse
them. On warm winter days the male bears often wander
about. Red squirrels and skunks, among other animals, do
the same, and badgers as far south as Iowa hibernate
during only the coldest weather.
Do you have GOOD LUCK or BAD
SUPERSTITION: Fear of Friday the 13th; carrying a rabbit's foot for luck; refusing to walk under a ladder; avoiding cracks in a sidewalk--these are called superstitions. The word superstition is somewhat difficult to define. It can be called an irrational belief or practice. Unfortunately religion can be defined the same way. It has been said that one person's religion is another's superstition.
Followers of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam deride the belief by some African natives that objects in nature possess a conscious life because they are inhabited by spirits. From the late Middle Ages through the 17th century, there was widespread belief in witchcraft in Europe and parts of North America. Today witchcraft is regarded as a superstition except by a very few people. Many who accept no religion denounce all religions as superstitious because they find no evidence to support them.
Elements of magic associated with religion and its beliefs have been regarded as superstitions. Amulets have been used to ward off evil spirits. Similar to the use of amulets is carrying a good-luck charm. The rabbit's foot has been considered a charm for centuries, probably because of the strength of the rabbit's hind legs.
Some superstitions are cultural or personal instead of religious. When a newly married couple enters their home for the first time, it has been traditional for the groom to carry the bride over the threshold. This custom is based on the fear that, if the bride should stumble entering the home, it is a bad omen for the marriage. The custom of tying tin cans to the car of newlyweds probably originated in the notion that noisemakers would frighten away evil spirits. The same may be said of New Year's Eve noisemakers and fireworks.
of the number 13 has long been a superstition. Its roots
are religious. At the Last Supper of Jesus and his
disciples, there were 13 persons, one of whom was Judas,
the traitor. Today many tall buildings omit a numbered
13th floor, skipping instead from 12 to 14. Avoidance of
black cats has religious origins as well. During the
Middle Ages it was believed that witches could turn
themselves into black cats. Thus when such a cat was
seen, it was considered to be a witch in disguise. Breaking
a mirror is supposed to bring seven
years of bad luck. Since a mirror reflects the self,
distortion of the image was a sign of coming trouble. The
Romans allotted seven years for the human body to renew
itself after a mirror was broken. Spilling
has also been thought to bring bad luck. Salt was once a
very valuable commodity, and wasting it was a real loss.
It was the chief means of preserving and purifying food. Salt has been used to
pay workers' wages--the word salary originally meant
"salt money." Should a believer of this
superstition spill salt on a table, he will take a pinch
of it and throw it over his left shoulder--into the face
of the devil, who is supposedly poised there.
