Christ the King Sunday is the last Sunday after Pentecost before the beginning of Advent which starts the new church year.
It emphasizes the Kingship of Christ and that He has dominion over all creatures.
Matthew 28:18 The Great Commission
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.”
The Church gives thanks and praise for sovereignty of Christ, who is Lord of all creation and is coming again in glory to reign.
The Revelation to John 1:8
“I am the Alpha and the Omega; says the Lord God, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
ALL SAINTS DAY
All Saints Day, also known as All Hallows’ Day, is a Christian celebration in honor of all the saints from Christian history.
It is observed on November 1st and commemorates our loved ones who are the faithful departed who have gone before us.
The Christian celebration stems from a belief that there is a powerful spiritual bond between those in heaven and the living.
All Saints Day revolves around “giving God solemn thanks for the lives and death of His saints”, including individuals who have personally led one to faith in Jesus, such as a grandparent, Godparent, or a friend.
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and the sin which clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.”
