A.D. or (ANNO DOMINI) is the Roman expression for: The year of the dominium of the Lord. This is to say the “Lord” as a title was given to the highest office of the Roman Empire. At that time this was Julius Caesar and it related to any year he was in power. B.C. or (BEFORE CAESAR) This is to say the Romans could not care less what came “BEFORE CAESAR”, and remember, the Romans ruled. Christianity adopted B.C. to mean (BEFORE CHRIST) since the Greek word for King is Christos, so it fit. God had his hand in making our Calendar, and that all people should date their calendars backward and forward from the birth of Jesus Christ. It is amazing that for over 2000 years now that the world has acknowledged the Birth of the most influential man in all history with B.C. (the time before Christ) and A.D. (Anno Domini),”In the year of OUR LORD. The Bible tells us that in the End Times the anti-christ and his forces “will think to change times and laws.” (Daniel 7:25). Recently there has been an attempt to hide the facts to the new generation by using the letters, BCE and CE to replace B.C. and A.D. BCE means before the common era, and CE refers to the common era. This is promoted by the anti-christ forces who are working in the world today. Just as the secular world tries to minimize Christianity by omitting Christ from Christmas like X mas, so also they would attack the fact of his miraculous birth. Don’t be deceived, Jesus Christ is still King of King’s, and Lord of Lord’s no matter how they try and confuse the calendar. You can find Jesus today, in his Word. There are 89 chapters in the 4 Gospels. If we read one a day we can read all 4 Gospels in three months. That is 4 times a year completing the Gospels of Jesus Christ, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Beloved, there is no better way to get to know Jesus better than by doing this.
Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
