I. WHAT ARE A SEASONS? WE MUST LEARN TO DISCERN THE SEASONS?

The Hebrews knew about seasons and times...

The SIX ANNUAL FEAST

The DAY OF ATONEMENT... The high priest enters the Holy of Holies for sin...

The SABBATICAL YEAT... every seventh year

The YEAR OF JUBILEE... 49-50TH year, 7 times 7...

Matthew 16:3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring.

O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

A. Each year is divided into four division each year: spring, summer, autumn, winter...
