It is the Year of the Lord, just like all the past years and even the present year. That means this year and all years in the past and future belong to the Lord Jesus Christ and not some animal or anything else.
Every Year is the Year of the Lord
Jesus could come back any moment. Are you ready to meet Jesus? Say He was to come right this moment? We are not promised tomorrow. We may die today not knowing it or Jesus could come for His church.
2019, is not the year of the Pig!
Just like 2018, was not the year of the Dog. Nor was 2017, the year of the Rooster, or 2016, the year of the Monkey or any of the other Chinese Zodiac Astrological Signs, Sheng Xiao in the Chinese New Year. Nor will is any past year or future year be the year of any of the 12 other Chinese astrological signs. The Bible warns us of following astrological signs, this not only includes Chinese signs by our star signs (Astrological signs)too.
See Deuteronomy 18:10-13.
There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord, and because of these abominations the Lord your God drives them out from before you. You shall be blameless before the Lord your God.
The world and everything belongs to Christ.
We are to honor Him and Him only. Not these 12 animals or creatures such as the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig that are part of this Chinese New Year.
Everything we do and say should reflect Christ.
Everything we say and do should involve Christ too. When we consult in astrology or zodiac signs we are saying we do not trust God.
