While WLC continues to uphold the observance of the Seventh-Day Sabbath, which is at the heart of Yahuwah's moral law, the 10 Commandments, we no longer believe that the annual feast days are binding upon believers today. Still, though, we humbly encourage all to set time aside to commemorate the yearly feasts with solemnity and joy, and to learn from Yahuwah’s instructions concerning their observance under the Old Covenant. Doing so will surely be a blessing to you and your home, as you study the wonderful types and shadows that point to the exaltation of Messiah Yahushua as the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the conquering lion of the tribe of Judah, and the Lamb of Yahuwah that takes away the sins of the world.

Calendar reform is needed. However, rather than changing the papal (Gregorian) calendar into some new form, the true calendar of the Creator needs to be restored to those who desire to worship Him. Scripture declares:

Verily my Sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am Yahuwah that doth sanctify you. Ye shall keep the Sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you . . . Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to Yahuwah: whosoever doeth any work in the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.1

It is imperative that all have an intelligent knowledge of these vital issues. Counterfeit worship requires a counterfeit calendar and Satan is well-prepared to confuse minds with an array of false methods of time-keeping. The modern week in use today, which would be carried over to the World Calendar, is founded on paganism:

planetary gods

Septem Planatæ: The seven planetary gods from which the modern names for the days of the week are derived. Luna, the moon goddess, was nearest the earth. Furthest out was Saturnus. Saturnus/Saturn, as the most important god was assigned the first hour of the first day of the week, making him god for that day: Saturday. The second hour of the first day belonged to Jupiter and so forth. The very last hour of the first day of the week belonged to Mars, so the first hour of the second day was dedicated to Sol, the sun god. This made him god of the second day of the week: Sunday. The rest of the days of the week were similarly their days. Venus, goddess of love, had the first hour of the last day of the week, dies Veneris, or Friday.

This planetary week was paganism’s counterfeit of the true, Biblical week instituted by the Creator in the beginning of Earth’s history. . . . Just as the true Sabbath is inseparably linked with the Biblical week, so the false Sabbath of pagan origin needed a weekly cycle. Thus we have found that the two counterfeit institutions were linked together . . . The enforcement [at the Council of Nicæa, A.D. 321-325] of the weekly observance of Sunday gave official recognition to the week of seven days and resulted in the introduction of it into the official civil calendar of Rome. The Romans passed that calendar down to us, and in it we have still the ancient planetary titles of the days of the week.2
