Galatians 4:10

The common answer for an explaination of the days, months, times, and years, of Galatians chapter four verse 10 is the sabbaths, and Jewish holydays, but I do not think that is the meaning of the verse.

Galatians 4:10 KJV Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years.

It is speaking of things like you horoscope and other astrology types of observance and possibly keeping the pagan holy days they were used to. I assume this in that we are told not to let a man judge us in whether we observed the Jewish holy days or not.

Colossians 2:16 KJV Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

But here Paul is condemning them for what they do.

Galatians 4:9-11 KJV But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage? 10Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years. 11I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain.

It has to be something that they tuned away from upon salvation or they could not turn unto them again.

I know this is against every reference I have check, but I have to go with the context of God’s word.
