1. The Son of Righteousness has it “Right”.
2. The Astronomers have it “Wrong”.
The summer solstice occurs on Father’s Day, Sunday, 20 June 2021, 9:32 PM MST. At that moment the North-Pole spin axis is pointing most directly to the sun and making the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. This date is different every year because the 24-hour spin rate of the earth is not synchronous with the length of the solar year.
To deal with this lack of synchronicity, astronomers came up with a recipe by adding leap years to try and keep the calendar in sync with the solar year. The solar year is defined as the time it takes the earth to go around the sun as viewed with respect to the celestial sphere of the stars. This complicated recipe, as shown in the chart below showing the dates of the summer solstices, requires that we have a leap year if the year is divisible by four, unless it is divisible by 100 then it is not a leap year unless it is divisible by 400, then it is a leap-year.

Wrong Scientific Assumption
One can see that this recipe is not accurate, as it drifts by about a half of a day every 400 years if you look at the decrease in the solstice times for the years 1800 to 2200. This chart was made under the typical scientific assumption that things change slowly, as is done, for example, in the false evolutionary theory model.
The Son of Righteousness, the Lord, works through cataclysmic events – helping to bring about repentance and to bring us to God and His Perfect Plan of Happiness if we will but look to Him.
His Second Coming
The events around His Second Coming will be more cataclysmic than any since the Fall of Adam and Eve. And His coming is imminent. It will make this chart obsolete, as the earth moves to its new home during Christ’s millennial reign where He will be our light and we will no longer be in this solar system. No “leap-years” there!
As the earth moves from its telestial to its terrestrial state, we will see the end of worldliness (wickedness), as part of a major purging that is ahead. The best thing we can do is to be focused on Christ, who is the “way, and the truth, and the life,” and no one comes to the Father but by Him. (John 14:6) – living and sharing His glorious gospel message.
Through Him, we go from the sun to the Son to the Father of the Son of Righteousness and a fullness of joy. Trusting Him and partaking in the uncountable blessings of the infinite atonement is the WAY to that fullness of joy with loved ones. It is the Perfect Plan of Happiness. HAPPY FFATHER’S DAY to all you faithful fathers. GOOD ON YOU for sharing light and truth with your children.
