Why the Calendar of the Torah was 360 Days, New Moons, and the True Fulfillment of Torah Appointed Times

The ancient calendar of the Torah is based solely on the moon, a lunar calendar. Which is why the Hebrew word “chodesh”, which is typically translated into English as “month” also means “new moon”. And the beginning of each “new moon”, which is “rosh chodesh”, was the beginning of a month. Which is why among other things the Torah commanded that trumpets be blown on each “new moon”, to announce to all the sons of Israel that a new month had begun. And this is why the apostle Paul much later mentions that these are matters of the Torah that are no longer necessary for us to keep under the new covenant.

But on the second day, the day after the new moon, David’s place was empty. And Saul said to Jonathan his son, “Why has not the son of Jesse come to the meal, either yesterday or today?”

1 Samuel 20:27

On the third new moon after the people of Israel had gone out of the land of Egypt, on that day they came into the wilderness of Sinai.

Exodus 19:1

You are wearied with your many counsels; let them stand forth and save you, those who divide the heavens, who gaze at the stars, who at the new moons make known what shall come upon you.

Isaiah 47:13

At the new moons, you shall offer an ascending offering to Yehovah: two bulls from the herd, one ram, seven male lambs a year old without blemish; also three tenths of an ephah of fine flour for a grain offering, mixed with oil, for each bull, and two tenths of fine flour for a grain offering, mixed with oil, for the one ram; and a tenth of fine flour mixed with oil as a grain offering for every lamb; for an ascending offering with a pleasing aroma, a food offering to Yehovah. Their drink offerings shall be half a hin of wine for a bull, a third of a hin for a ram, and a quarter of a hin for a lamb. This is the ascending offering of each new moon throughout the new moons of the year.

Numbers 28:11-14

On the day of your… new moons, you shall blow the trumpets

Numbers 10:10

Blow the trumpet at the new moon… 

Psalm 81:3

Therefore let no one judge you by what you eat or drink… New Moon, or a shabbath.

Colossians 2:16

And the ancient calendar of the Torah is not the same as any of the calendars widely used today, neither by the nations, which would be the Gentiles, who use the Gregorian calendar, which is a Roman calendar, nor even Israel, who use the Jewish calendar. Which is why the “months” mentioned in the Torah had different names than the months of the official Jewish calendar used today, for they are two different calendars. And the names of the months of the ancient calendar of the Torah were Hebrew. Such as the second month, which was called Ziv, which today is called Iyar in the official Jewish calendar. And the seventh month, which was called Ethanim, which today is called Tishri in the official Jewish calendar. And the eighth month, which was called Bul, which today is called Cheshvan in the official Jewish calendar. And the first month, which was called Aviv, which today is called Nisan in the official Jewish calendar.

In the four hundred and eightieth year after the people of Israel came out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon’s reign over Israel, in the new moon of Ziv, which is the second new moon, he began to build the house of Yehovah.

1 Kings 6:1

In the fourth year the foundation of the house of Yehovah was laid, in the new moon of Ziv.

1 Kings 6:37

And all the men of Israel assembled to King Solomon at the feast in the new moon of Ethanim, which is the seventh new moon.

1 Kings 8:2

And in the eleventh year, in the new moon of Bul, which is the eighth new moon, the house was finished in all its parts, and according to all its specifications. He was seven years in building it.

1 Kings 6:38

Today, in the new moon of Aviv, you are going out.

Exodus 13:4

For the current official Jewish calendar was a Babylonian calendar, which the sons of Israel began using around the Babylonian exile. And the exile began around 610 BC in the 7th century BC, which is why the names of the months of this calendar are Babylonian. Which are Nisan, Iyar, Sivan, Tammuz, Av, Elul, Tishri, Cheshvan, Kislev, Tevet, Shevat, and Adar. Which is a lunisolar calendar which bases its year on the sun, but bases its months on the moon. And every few years an extra month called Adar 2 is added to the year to synchronize the lunar months with the solar year, which is called a “leap year”. Which the sons of Israel adopted because of a phenomenon that occurred that began to be noticed before this time. The orbit of the earth around the sun slowed, which previously took 360 days to do one complete orbit around the sun, which today takes the earth around 365 and 1/4 days to do one complete orbit around the sun. And this great change caused the seasons to not happen at their expected months in the ancient 360 day calendars of the civilizations of the world. Including the ancient calendar of the Torah, which was a 360 day calendar, because solar years were no longer 360 days. Which is why new calendars had to be developed by man, which were more or less modifications made to the ancient calendars, by adding days to the year or taking away days from the months or adding additional months to the year to all try to fix their respective calendars to reflect the change in the solar year. Such as the Julian calendar developed by the Romans, that was later modified by Pope Gregory XIII, which became the Gregorian calendar. And the Babylonian calendar developed by the Babylonians that was later adopted by the sons of Israel during their exile in Babylon, which became the Jewish calendar. Which are both widely used today. And various other civilizations like the Persians and Mayans and Incas and Chinese and Hindus and Assyrians and Egyptians and Greeks all changed their calendars by adding more days to their 360 day calendars. Even the Romans previously had a 360 day calendar before they changed their calendar. And all of them began to change around the same time of the 8th century BC and 7th century BC, which all point to one man who was king over Judah at that time in the 8th century BC, which was Hezekiah, who ruled from around 739 BC to around 711 BC. For God performed a powerful sign for him using a shadow, by making the shadow go backwards, changing the position of the sun in the sky. Which implies that God caused the rotation of the entire earth to reverse. And when he did this he also caused the orbit of the earth to slow. And the implications and ramifications of this one seemingly innocuous sign with a mere shadow were colossal, because not only did it affect how every civilization on earth kept track of time, which is evidenced in recorded history, but it also affected how we keep track of time thousands of years later. And because the kings of Assyria and Babylon already knew that Hezekiah was sick, once they heard that he was healed then they also heard about the sign that was performed on the earth through him. Which is why they sent ambassadors to inquire about the sign that was performed on the earth, which initially may not have been very noticeable to the common person since they did not have digital watches to realize that the day was reversed a few hours, but over the months and years then the sign would’ve become extremely noticeable when the seasons were no longer happening at their expected times. It was obvious even to the Mayans and Incas who did not have communication with Hezekiah to know what caused this change. And that is why all the calendars of today, including the Jewish calendar, are not the original calendar of the Torah.

And Hezekiah said to Isaiah, “What shall be the sign that Yehovah will heal me, and that I shall go up to the house of Yehovah on the third day?” And Isaiah said, “This shall be the sign to you from Yehovah, that Yehovah will do the thing that he has promised: shall the shadow go forward ten steps, or go back ten steps?” And Hezekiah answered, “It is an easy thing for the shadow to lengthen ten steps. Rather let the shadow go back ten steps.” And Isaiah the prophet called to Yehovah, and he brought the shadow back ten steps, which had gone down on the steps of Ahaz.

2 Kings 20:8-11

In those days Hezekiah became sick and was at the point of death. And Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz came to him, and said to him, “Thus says Yehovah: Set your house in order, for you shall die, you shall not recover.” Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to Yehovah, and said, “Please, O Yehovah, remember how I have walked before you in faithfulness and with a whole heart, and have done what is good in your sight.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly. Then the word of Yehovah came to Isaiah: “Go and say to Hezekiah, Thus says Yehovah, the God of David your father: I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. Behold, I will add 15 years to your life. I will deliver you and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria, and will defend this city. “This shall be the sign to you from Yehovah, that Yehovah will do this thing that he has promised: Behold, with the sun I am bringing back the shadow of the steps that have gone down on the steps of Ahaz, to return backwards ten steps'”. And so with the sun it turned backwards ten steps on the steps where it had gone down.

Isaiah 38:1-8

At that time Merodach-baladan the son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent envoys with letters and a present to Hezekiah, for he heard that Hezekiah had been sick.

2 Kings 20:12

However, ambassadors of the princes of Babylon were sent to him to inquire about the wonder that had been done on the earth…

2 Chronicles 32:31

So Yehovah saved Hezekiah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem from the hand of Sennacherib king of Assyria and from the hand of all his enemies, and he provided for them on every side. And many brought gifts to Yehovah to Jerusalem and precious things to Hezekiah king of Judah, so that he was exalted in the sight of all nations from that time onward.

2 Chronicles 32:22-23

Numerous evidences are preserved which prove that prior to the year of 365 and 1/4 days, the year was only 360 days long.

All over the world we find that there was at some time the same calendar of 360 days, and that at some later date, about the 7th century before the present era, 5 days were added at the end of the year, as “days over the year,” or “days of nothing.” Scholars who investigated the calendars of the Incas of Peru and the Mayas of Yucatan wondered at the calendar of 360 days; so did the scholars who studied the calendars of the Egyptians, Persians, Hindus, Chaldeans, Assyrians, Hebrews, Chinese, Greeks, or Romans. Most of them, while debating the problem in their own field, did not suspect that the same problem turned up in the calendar of every nation of antiquity.

All around the globe the years following, 687 saw activity directed toward reforming the calendar. Between 747 and 687 the calendar was in a chaotic state, the length of the year and of the month. Before the 8th century there was a comparatively long span of time when the year had 360 days and the lunar month consisted of almost exactly 30 days.

Although the change in the number of days in the year was calculated soon after it occurred, nevertheless, for some time many nations retained a civil year of 360 days divided into 12 months of 30 days each.

The old Babylonian year was composed of 360 days. The astronomical tablets from the period antedating the Neo-Babylonian Empire compute the year at so many days, without mention of additional days. That the ancient Babylonian year had only 360 days was known before the cuneiform script was deciphered: Ctesias wrote that the walls of Babylon were 360 furlongs in compass, “as many as there had been days in the year.” The old Babylonian year consisted of 12 months of 30 days each, the months being computed from the time of the appearance of the new moon. It appears that in the 7th century 5 days were added to the Babylonian calendar.

The ancient Persian year was composed of 360 days or 12 months of 30 days each. In the 7th century 5 Gatha days were added to the calendar.

The ancient Romans also reckoned 360 days to the year. Plutarch wrote in his Life of Numa that in the time of Romulus, in the 8th century, the Romans had a year of 360 days only. Various Latin authors say that the ancient month was composed of 30 days. At the end of the 8th or the beginning of the 7th century before the present era, the people of Rome introduced a calendar reform.

The Egyptian year was composed of 360 days before it became 365 by the addition of 5 days. The calendar of the Ebers Papyrus, a document of the New Kingdom, has a year of 12 months of 30 days each. In the 9th year of King Ptolemy Euergetes, or, 238, a reform party among the Egyptian priests met at Canopus and drew up a decree; in 1866 it was discovered at Tanis in the Delta, inscribed on a tablet. The purpose of the decree was to harmonize the calendar with the seasons “according to the present arrangement of the world,” as the text states. 1 day was ordered to be added every four years to the “360 days, and to the 5 days which were afterwards ordered to be added.” The Canopus Decree states that at some period in the past the Egyptian year was only 360 days long, and that the 5 days were added at some later date; the Ebers Papyrus shows that under the 18th Dynasty the calendar had a year of 360 days divided into 12 months of 30 days each; other documents of this period also testify that the lunar month had 30 days, and that a new moon was observed 12 times in a period of 360 days. The Sothis book says that this 360-day year was established under the Hyksos, who ruled after the end of the Middle Kingdom, preceding the 18th Dynasty. In the 8th or 7th century the 5 epagomena days were added to the year under conditions which caused them to be regarded as unpropitious. That the introduction of epagomena was not the result of progress in astronomical knowledge, but was caused by an actual change in the planetary movements, is implied in the Canopus Decree, for it refers to the amendment of “the faults of the heaven.”

Cleobulus, who was counted among the seven sages of ancient Greece, in his famous allegory represents the year as divided into 12 months of 30 days: the father is one, the sons are 12, and each of them has 30 daughters. From the days of Thales, another of the seven sages, who could predict an eclipse, the Hellenes knew that the year consists of 365 days; Thales was regarded by them as the man who discovered the number of days in the year. As he was bom in the 7th century, it is not impossible that he was one of the first among the Greeks to learn the new length of the year; it was in the beginning of that century that the year achieved its present length. A contemporary of Thales and also one of the seven sages, Solon was regarded as the first among the Greeks to find that a lunar month is less than 30 days. Despite their knowledge of the correct measure of the year and the month, the Greeks, after Solon and Thales, continued to keep to the obsolete calendar, a fact for which we have the testimony of Hippocrates, “seven years contain 360 weeks”, Xenophon, Aristotle, and Pliny. The persistence of reckoning by 360 days is accounted for not only by a certain reverence for the earlier astronomical year, but also by its convenience for every computation.

On the other side of the ocean, the Mayan year consisted of 360 days; later 5 days were added, and the year was then a tun, 360-day period, and 5 days; every 4th year another day was added to the year. Friar Diego de Landa, in his Yucatan before and after the Conquest, wrote, “they had their perfect year like ours, of 365 days and 6 hours”. De Landa also wrote that the five supplementary days were regarded as “sinister and unlucky.” They were called “days without name.” Although the Mexicans at the time of the conquest called a thirty-day period “a moon,” they knew that the synodical moon period is 29.5209 days, which is more exact than the Gregorian calendar introduced in Europe ninety years after the discovery of America. Obviously, they adhered to an old tradition dating from the time when the year had 12 months of 30 days each, 360 days in all.

In ancient South America also the year consisted of 360 days, divided into 12 months. “The Peruvian year was divided into 12 Quilla, or moons of 30 days. 5 days were added at the end, called Allcacanquis.” Thereafter, 1 day was added every 4 years to keep the calendar correct.

We cross the Pacific Ocean and return to Asia. The calendar of the peoples of China had a year of 360 days divided into 12 months of 30 days each. A relic of the system of 360 days is the still persisting division of the sphere into 360 degrees; each degree represented the diurnal advance of the earth on its orbit, or that portion of the zodiac which was passed over from one night to the next. After 360 changes the stellar sky returned to the same position for the observer on the earth. When the year changed from 360 to 365 and 1/4 days, the Chinese added 5 and a 1/4 days to their year, calling this additional period Khe-ying. The division of the year into 360 days was honored in many ways, and, indeed, it became an incentive to progress in astronomy and geometry, so that people did not readily discard this method of reckoning when it became obsolete. They retained their “moons” of 30 days, though the lunar month in fact became shorter, and they regarded the 5 days as not belonging to the year.

The texts of the Veda period know a year of only 360 days. “All Veda texts speak uniformly and exclusively of a year of 360 days. Passages in which this length of the year is directly stated are found in all the Brahmanas.” In their astronomical works, the Brahmans used very ingenious geometric methods, and their failure to discern that the year of 360 days was days too short seemed baffling. In ten years such a mistake accumulates to 52 days. This Hindu year of 360 days is divided into 12 months of 30 days each. The texts describe the moon as crescent for 15 days and waning for another 15 days; they also say that the sun moved for 6 months or 180 days to the north and for the same number of days to the south. The Brahmans were aware that the length of the year, of the month, and of the day changed. From approximately the 7th pre-Christian century on, the year of the Hindus became 365 and 1/4 days long, but for temple purposes the old year of 360 days was also observed, and this year is called savana.

And the slower orbit of the earth then caused the sidereal time from one new moon to the next new moon to be shortened. Which today is a lesser “lunation” time of around 29 and 1/2 days, whereas before it was precisely 30 days. Which is why 150 days was precisely 5 months when the flood happened, which was 5 precise new moons. And also why prophetic timelines use 30 day months, for the months of the Torah were based on 30 day lunations that previously existed.

And the waters prevailed on the earth 150 days.

Genesis 7:24

In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second new moon, on the seventeenth day of the new moon, on that day all the fountains of the great deep burst forth, and the windows of the heavens were opened.

Genesis 7:11

and in the seventh new moon, on the seventeenth day of the new moon, the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat.

Genesis 8:4

but do not measure the court outside the temple; leave that out, for it is given over to the nations, and they will trample the holy city for 42 months. And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, andthey will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.

Revelation 11:2-3

And 12 precise new moons of 30 days each was precisely 360 days, which was one complete orbit of the earth around the sun, which was 1 solar year. And that is why the ancient calendar of the Torah was not only 360 days, but also only lunar, because you only needed to look at the current phase of the moon to know what day of the month you were in, and know how many new moons have passed in the year to know what month in the year you were in. It is the perfect calendar. And that is one of the reasons why the “lesser light” in the heavens was made, to give us a way to measure time using the distinct visual phases of the moon.

And God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars.

Genesis 1:16

…And let them be for signs and for appointed times, and for days and years,

Genesis 1:14

He made the moon to mark the appointed times; the sun knows its time for setting.

Psalm 104:19

And this was the original measure of time God established when he made the heavens and the earth, which was very precise. And remnants of the original precisions of time still remain today even after God altered the length of time for years and new moons. Which can be observed in our current moon for example, that we always see the same side of the moon. Because the rotation of the moon on its own axis is still perfectly synchronized with its orbit around the earth. Which further implies that the lunar orbit was never altered, only the orbit of the earth around the sun, which then caused shorter lunation times, because the sidereal orbit of the moon was affected, not its synodic orbit which remains the same to this day. And all of this is knowledge that evolutionists and atheists are willfully ignorant of because knowing how precise these measurements of time were has devastating implications against their lies that the earth and the moon were formed by randomized events and objects that collided and formed the earth and the moon. And so they suppress the truth while promulgating their lies, which has caused this knowledge and understanding regarding the original calendar of the Torah to be scarce, even among the Jews themselves.

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

Genesis 1:1

As such, the earth was brought into existence by God in Day 1 of creation with orbit and rotation, which is why an invisible progression of “days” and “evening and morning” already existed on that day. Which God did in preparation for Day 4 of creation, when the sun and the moon would be brought into existence by God.

God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.

Genesis 1:5

And God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens… And there was evening and there was morning, the fourth day.

Genesis 1:14-19

And when God brought the sun into existence, it brought a visible division and progression of day and night of an already invisible orbit and rotation that existed.

to separate the day from the night

Genesis 1:14

And in this way just as the moon was used to measure the time of months, the time of the rotation of the earth on its own axis is measured using the sun. Using the duration of the light on the earth to measure “day” and the duration of the lack of light on the earth to measure “night”. And a “day” in the Torah began in the equivalent time of around 6:00 PM in our clock of hours used today, around sunset. And ended the next day around 6:00 PM our time, around sunset. Thus “one day” was first a full evening, then it was a full day, thus “evening and morning”, one literal day. Not figurative days as some falsely believe and teach to try to push lies that the earth is millions or billions of years old.

And God called the firmament Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day.

Genesis 1:8

As opposed to the Roman days which are half evening beginning at midnight, then full day, then half evening again ending at midnight. Which are days that center around the sun. And during the time of Yeshuah, the Romans used a similar clock of hours as we do today. And divided a day into 24 hours with the hours of the day beginning at midnight. Yet the Jews divided a day into “twelve hours”. The “first hour” was in between or around our 6:00 AM to 7:00 AM. The “second hour” was in between or around our 7:00 AM to 8:00 AM. The “third hour” was in between or around our 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM. The “fourth hour” was in between or around our 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM. The “fifth hour” was in between or around our 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM. The “sixth hour” was in between or around our 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM. The “seventh hour” was in between or around our 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM. The “eighth hour” was in between or around our 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM. The “ninth hour” was in between or around our 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM. The “tenth hour” was in between or around our 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM. The “eleventh hour” was in between or around our 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM. And the “twelfth hour” was in between or around our 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM.

Yeshuah answered, “Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world.

John 11:9

And the night was divided into “four watches”, because they did not have digital watches like we do today nor was there an easy way for them to visually look at the sky in the night to determine the current time. Whereas during the day they could use sundials or see where the sun was in the sky to determine the current time. So the “first watch” was in between or around our 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM, after sunset. The “second watch” was in between or around our 9:00 PM to 12:00 AM. The “third watch” was in between or around our 12:00 AM to 3:00 AM. And the “fourth watch” was in between or around our 3:00 AM to 6:00 AM, which came with the sound of birds or roosters signifying sunrise was about to come.

If he comes in the second watch, or in the third, and finds them awake, blessed are those servants!

Luke 12:38

But understand this: If the owner of the house had known in which watch of the night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into.

Matthew 24:43

And in the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea.

Matthew 14:25

And when God brought the moon into existence, it brought a visible division and progression of months. And the measure of time for “month” could be measured using the progressive phases of the moon, from one new moon to the next new moon. Which could also be used to measure the time for “year” for each set of 12 new moons. Yet the “new moon” of the Torah is not our current definition of a “new moon”, which currently is the phase of the moon that is completely dark. But it was a “crescent moon”. The phase of the moon where only a sliver of the moon is lit after the completely dark phase of the moon, which signified a new month. Which was therefore the 1st day of the Torah new moon, or day 1 of the month. And just as a Hebrew text is read from right to left, so in likewise manner the light of the moon is observed as it transitions from right to left during the month. Meaning if the light of the moon is on the right it is early in the month. And if the light of the moon is on the left then it is late in the month.

Note: Watch this video to understand how the phases of the moon progress in a month. The “new moon” of the Torah was when only a sliver of light was seen on the right of the moon, which is day 1 of a Torah “new moon”, or day 1 of any month in the current Jewish calendar. And the full moon was day 15 of the Torah “new moon”, which was in the middle of the month. And then to the next “new moon” of the Torah was another 15 days. So from Torah new moon to Torah new moon it was 30 days previously. And now lunations are around 29 and 1/2 days since solar years became longer. Also, this is merely a reference to an video to help strengthen the statements made in this study, and not an endorsement of any other videos or statements made by NASA or NASA Goddard.

Then the beginning of the first quarter of the moon was the 7th and 1/2 day of the Torah new moon, or day 7 to 8 of the month.

Then the beginning of the full moon was the 15th day of the Torah new moon, or day 15 of the month, which is the middle of the month.

Which is one reason why the Passover lamb was killed on the 14th day of the Torah new moon, for the full moon began that following evening on the 15th day. And the lamb was killed on the Passover at “bayin ereb”, which means “in the time before evening”, which is around the “ninth” Jewish hour. Which is around the time Yeshuah died after he was crucified, which was in 30 AD, or 4003 YB, around or in between our current time of 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM. In fulfillment of the precise day and time of the slaughter of the Passover lamb. And he also fulfilled other requirements of the Passover, which includes the requirement that the lamb had to be perfect, for he never sinned. And that the bones of the lamb could not be broken, for his bones were never broken. And that the lamb had to be a male son of the year, which means the first lamb born in the year, for he is the firstborn son of God in creation. And that is why Paul said, “the Mashiach, our Passover lamb has been sacrificed”. And the Hebrew name for the English word “Passover” is “Pesach”, which always happens in Nisan 14 in the Jewish calendar.

Your lamb shall be perfect, a male son of the year. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats, and you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of this new moon, when the all the assemblies of the congregation of Israel shall kill their lambs in the time before evening.

Exodus 12:5-6

In the first new moon, on the fourteenth day of the new moon in the time before evening, is the Passover of Yehovah.

Leviticus 23:5

but with the precious blood of the Mashiach, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot.

1 Peter 1:19

God made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.

2 Corinthians 5:21

Do not break any of the bones.

Exodus 12:46

These things happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled: “Not one of his bones will be broken,”

John 19:36

He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken.

Psalm 34:20

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.

Colossians 1:15

And at the ninth hour Yeshuah cried with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” And some of the bystanders hearing it said, “Behold, he is calling Elijah.” And someone ran and filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on a reed and gave it to him to drink, saying, “Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to take him down.” And Yeshuah uttered a loud cry and breathed his last.

Mark 15:34-37

For the Mashiach, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.

1 Corinthians 5:7

And that evening after the Passover lamb was killed was the beginning of the 15th day of the Torah new moon, which is now Nisan 15 in the Jewish calendar. Which was the full moon. Which is when the “feast” of Passover began, which is why trumpets were blown on this specific full moon.

Blow the trumpet.. at the full moon, on our feast day.

Psalm 81:3

On the day of your gladness also, and at your appointed feasts… you shall blow the trumpets

Numbers 10:10

Which consisted of eating the Passover lamb that was killed hours ago, a “feast”, and also eating the unleavened bread on the Feast of Unleavened Bread that also began on that same night. Which was commanded to be eaten at the evening at the 14th day, meaning the evening that began the 15th day. Until the evening at the 21st day, meaning until the evening that began the 22nd day, thus ending ending at the “twelfth” Jewish hour or around or in between our 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM of the 21st day. Thus 7 days from the 15th day of the first Torah new moon to the 21st day of the first Torah new moon. Which is now Nisan 15 to Nisan 21 in the Jewish calendar, which is called “Hag HaMatzot” in Hebrew.

They shall eat the flesh that night, roasted on the fire; with unleavened bread and bitter herbs they shall eat it.

Exodus 12:8

And on the fifteenth day of the same new moon is the Feast of Unleavened Bread to Yehovah; for seven days you shall eat unleavened bread.

Leviticus 23:6

In the first new moon, from the fourteenth day of the new moon at evening, you shall eat unleavened bread until the twenty-first day of the new moon at evening.

Exodus 12:18

And symbolically, for us to participate in the Passover we must first remove all sin, for that is what the leaven in the Feast of Unleavened Bread symbolizes.

Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? Cleanse out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, as you really are unleavened. For the Mashiach, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. Let us therefore keep the feast, not with the old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

1 Corinthians 5:6-8

And that evening that began the 15th day of the first Torah new moon was also the beginning of a “high shabbath”, where no work could be done on the high shabbath just as no work could be done on the weekly shabbath, hence “shabbath”, which means “rest”. Which were two different shabbaths, for high shabbaths were not associated to weeks but to appointed times of the Torah. And were therefore less frequent than the weekly shabbaths, which is why these particular shabbaths were called “high shabbaths”. Which is why after Yeshuah died, he was entombed quickly, for not only did the Torah command that bodies be buried on the same day before the next day began in the evening, but a shabbath was about to begin. And not just any shabbath, but a high one. Which is also why the 14th day of the first Torah new moon was called the “day of preparation”. A day to prepare for the high shabbath that was coming the next day. Which was not the weekly shabbath in the year the Mashiach died. Which is a truth many people do not understand, because they do not know the Torah. Which is why there exists a false teaching that the Mashiach died on a Friday before the weekly shabbath.

On the first day you shall hold a set-apart convocation, and on the seventh day a set-apart convocation. No work shall be done on those days. But what everyone needs to eat, that alone may be prepared by you.

Exodus 12:16

And if a man has committed a crime punishable by death and he is put to death, and you hang him on a tree, his body shall not remain all night on the tree, but you shall bury him the same day, for a hanged man is cursed by God. You shall not defile your land that Yehovah your God is giving you for an inheritance.

Deuteronomy 21:22-23

And when evening had come, since it was the day of Preparation, that is, the day before the shabbath,

Mark 15:42

It was the day of Preparation, and the shabbath was beginning.

Luke 23:54

Since it was the day of Preparation, and so that the bodies would not remain on the cross on the shabbath, for that shabbath was a high day, the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken and that they might be taken away.

John 19:31–42

And the “last supper” of Yeshuah was not the “Passover feast” of the next evening that began the 15th day, when the actual Passover lamb was eaten. For remember, the Passover lamb had not yet been killed, which the Mashiach was about to fulfill with his death. But it was a meal at the day of preparation on the previous evening that began the 14th day, which was also considered a “Passover meal” because it was eaten on the same day the Passover lamb was killed. And the place the disciples ate that “last supper” was also intended to be the place where they would eat the Passover lamb the next evening.

Now before the feast of the Passover, Yeshuah knew that his hour had come to depart from this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. The devil had already put it into the heart of Judas son of Simon Iscariot to betray him. And during supper… Satan entered into him. Yeshuah said to him, “What you are going to do, do quickly.” Now no one at the table knew why he said this to him. Some thought that, because Judas had the moneybag, Yeshuah was telling him, “Buy what we need for the feast,” or that he should give something to the poor.

John 13:1-29

Now before Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Yeshuah, saying, “Where will you have us prepare for you to eat the Passover?

Matthew 26:17

And before day of Unleavened Bread, when they sacrifice the Passover lamb, his disciples said to him, “Where will you have us go and prepare for you to eat the Passover?

Mark 14:12

Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread arrived, when the Passover lamb is sacrificed. Yeshuah sent Peter and John ahead and said, “Go and prepare the Passover meal, so we can eat it together.” “Where do you want us to prepare it?” they asked him. He replied, “As soon as you enter Jerusalem, a man carrying a pitcher of water will meet you. Follow him. At the house he enters, say to the owner, The Teacher asks: Where is the guest room where I can eat the Passover meal with my disciples?… And they went and found it just as he had told them, and they prepared the Passover. And when the hour came, he reclined at table, and the apostles with him. And he said to them, “I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. For I tell you I will not eat it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.”

Luke 22:7-16

And on the 14th day of the first Torah new moon, beginning with the evening and progressing into the day, after Yeshuah had his last supper with his disciples, which was also the night he instituted a new meal, the “Lord’s Supper”, or “supper of Yeshuah”, or the “Master’s Supper”, which all his followers must now participate in, then he prayed at the Garden of Gethsemane. Which is at the Mount of Olives. Then was betrayed by Judas with a kiss and was arrested. Then was beaten and presented before Caiaphas the High Priest. Then after or beginning around the “sixth” Roman hour, which was after or beginning around the “first” Jewish hour, which was after or beginning around 6:00 AM in our time, Yeshuah was presented before Pilate early in the morning. Then was presented before Herod. Then was presented before Pilate again. Was beaten again and also scourged. Then was later crucified that same morning around the “third” Jewish hour, which is our current time of around or in between 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM. And hung on the cross for around 6 hours in agony, until he died later that same day in the afternoon. Which all happened on the same day of the 14th day of the first Torah new moon, from the time of his “last supper” in the previous evening to his entombment before the end of the next evening, all in one day.

Now as they were eating, Yeshuah took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.” And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

Matthew 26:26-28

So Yeshuah said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.

John 6:53

Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him.

John 6:56

The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of the Mashiach? The bread that we break, is it not a participation in the body of the Mashiach? 

1 Corinthians 10:16

Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body, eats and drinks judgment on himself. That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have fallen asleep.

1 Corinthians 11:28-30

Then Yeshuah went with them to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to his disciples, “Sit here, while I go over there and pray.”

Matthew 26:36

And he came out and went, as was his custom, to the Mount of Olives, and the disciples followed him. And when he came to the place, he said to them, “Pray that you may not enter into temptation.” And he withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, and knelt down and prayed,

Luke 22:39-41

And being in anguish he prayed more earnestly; and his sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground. And when he rose from prayer, he came to the disciples and found them sleeping… there came a crowd, and the man called Judas, one of the twelve, was leading them. He drew near to Yeshuah to kiss him, but Yeshuah said to him, “Judas, would you betray the Son of Man with a kiss?

Luke 22:45

Then they seized him and led him away, bringing him into the high priest’s house, and Peter was following at a distance.

Luke 22:54

Now the men who were holding Yeshuah in custody were mocking him as they beat him. They also blindfolded him and kept asking him, “Prophesy! Who is it that struck you?” And they said many other things against him, blaspheming him. When day came, the assembly of the elders of the people gathered together, both chief priests and scribes. And they led him away to their council, and they said, “If you are the Mashiach, tell us.” But he said to them, “If I tell you, you will not believe, and if I ask you, you will not answer. But from now on the Son of Man shall be seated at the right hand of the power of God.” So they all said, “Are you the Son of God, then?” And he said to them, “You say that I am.” Then they said, “What further testimony do we need? We have heard it ourselves from his own lips.”

Luke 22:63-71

But he remained silent and made no answer. Again the high priest asked him, “Are you the Mashiach, the Son of the Blessed?”

Mark 14:61

Then those who had seized Yeshuah led him to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders had gathered.

Matthew 26:57

But Yeshuah remained silent. And the high priest said to him, “I adjure you by the living God, tell us if you are the Mashiach, the Son of God.”

Matthew 26:63

When morning came, all the chief priests and the elders of the people took counsel against Yeshuah to put him to death. And they bound him and led him away and delivered him over to Pilate the governor.

Matthew 27:1-2

Then the whole company of them arose and brought him before Pilate.

Luke 23:1

And as soon as it was morning, the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council. And they bound Yeshuah and led him away and delivered him over to Pilate.

Mark 15:1

Then they led Yeshuah from the house of Caiaphas to the governor’s headquarters. It was early morning. They themselves did not enter the governor’s headquarters, so that they would not be defiled, but could eat the Passover. So Pilate went outside to them and said, “What accusation do you bring against this man?”

John 18:28-29

Then Pilate took Yeshuah and flogged him. And the soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head and arrayed him in a purple robe. They came up to him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!” and struck him with their hands. Pilate went out again and said to them, “See, I am bringing him out to you that you may know that I find no guilt in him.” So Yeshuah came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. Pilate said to them, “Behold the man!” When the chief priests and the officers saw him, they cried out, “Crucify him, crucify him!” Pilate said to them, “Take him yourselves and crucify him, for I find no guilt in him.” The Jews answered him, “We have a law, and according to that law he ought to die because he has made himself the Son of God.” When Pilate heard this statement, he was even more afraid. He entered his headquarters again and said to Yeshuah, “Where are you from?” But Yeshuah gave him no answer. So Pilate said to him, “You will not speak to me? Do you not know that I have authority to release you and authority to crucify you?” Yeshuah answered him, “You would have no authority over me at all unless it had been given you from above. Therefore he who delivered me over to you has the greater sin.” From then on Pilate sought to release him, but the Jews cried out, “If you release this man, you are not Caesar’s friend. Everyone who makes himself a king opposes Caesar.” So when Pilate heard these words, he brought Yeshuah out and sat down on the judgment seat at a place called The Stone Pavement, and in Aramaic Gabbatha. Now it was the day of Preparation of the Passover. It was about the sixth hour. He said to the Jews, “Behold your King!”  

John 19:1-14

When Pilate heard this, he asked whether the man was a Galilean. And when he learned that he belonged to Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent him over to Herod, who was himself in Jerusalem at that time.

Luke 23:6-7

And Herod with his soldiers treated him with contempt and mocked him. Then, arraying him in splendid clothing, he sent him back to Pilate. And Herod and Pilate became friends with each other that very day, for before this they had been at enmity with each other.

Luke 23:11-12

So Pilate decided that their demand should be granted. He released the man who had been thrown into prison for insurrection and murder, for whom they asked, but he delivered Yeshuah over to their will. And as they led him away, they seized one Simon of Cyrene, who was coming in from the country, and laid on him the cross, to carry it behind Yeshuah.

Luke 23:24-26

Then he released for them Barabbas, and having scourged Yeshuah, delivered him to be crucified. Then the soldiers of the governor took Yeshuah into the governor’s headquarters, and they gathered the whole battalion before him. And they stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, and twisting together a crown of thorns, they put it on his head and put a reed in his right hand. And kneeling before him, they mocked him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!” And they spit on him and took the reed and struck him on the head. And when they had mocked him, they stripped him of the robe and put his own clothes on him and led him away to crucify him. As they went out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name. They compelled this man to carry his cross.

Matthew 27:26-32

They cried out, “Away with him, away with him, crucify him!” Pilate said to them, “Shall I crucify your King?” The chief priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar.”So he delivered him over to them to be crucified.

John 19:15-16

And they crucified him and divided his garments among them, casting lots for them, to decide what each should take. And it was the third hour when they crucified him.

Mark 15:24-25

And the robbers who were crucified with him also reviled him in the same way. Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Yeshuah cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” And some of the bystanders, hearing it, said, “This man is calling Elijah.” And one of them at once ran and took a sponge, filled it with sour wine, and put it on a reed and gave it to him to drink. But the others said, “Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to save him.” And Yeshuah cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his airflow.

Matthew 27:44-50

Let the Mashiach, the King of Israel, come down now from the cross that we may see and believe.” Those who were crucified with him also reviled him. And when the sixth hour had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour Yeshuah cried with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” And some of the bystanders hearing it said, “Behold, he is calling Elijah.” And someone ran and filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on a reed and gave it to him to drink, saying, “Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to take him down.” And Yeshuah uttered a loud cry and breathed his last.

Mark 15:32-37

And then came the evening to eat at the Passover feast. And that Passover feast was commanded to be eaten quickly, with belt fastened, sandals on the feet, and staff at hand, meaning ready to leave.

In this manner you shall eat it: with your belt fastened, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. And you shall eat it in haste. It is the Passover of Yehovah.

Exodus 12:11

Because on that same night after midnight the Israelites were going to be driven out of Egypt. For after God killed all the firstborn of Egypt and passed over the Israelites who put the blood of the lamb on their doorposts that was killed hours ago, the Egyptians became terrified to keep the Israelites any longer. For they were terrified that they would also be killed. And therefore drove out the Israelites quickly that same night. On a night of the full moon.

For I will pass through the land of Egypt that night, and I will strike down every firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and animals; on all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments: I am Yehovah. The blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you live: when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and no plague shall destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt

Exodus 12:12-13

At midnight Yehovah struck down all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the dungeon, and all the firstborn of the livestock. And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he and all his servants and all the Egyptians. And there was a great cry in Egypt, for there was not a house where someone was not dead. Then he summoned Moses and Aaron by night and said, “Up, go out from among my people, both you and the people of Israel; and go, serve Yehovah, as you have said. Take your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and be gone, and bless me also!” The Egyptians were urgent with the people to send them out of the land in haste. For they said, “We shall all be dead.” So the people took their dough before it was leavened, their kneading bowls being bound up in their cloaks on their shoulders.

Exodus 12:29-34

The time that the people of Israel lived in Egypt and Canaan was 430 years. At the end of 430 years, on that very day, all the armies of Yehovah went out from the land of Egypt. It was a night of watching by Yehovah, to bring them out of the land of Egypt; so this same night is a night of watching kept to Yehovah by all the people of Israel throughout their generations.

Exodus 12:40-42

They set out from Rameses in the first new moon, on the fifteenth day of the first new moon. On the day after the Passover, the people of Israel went out lifted up in the sight of all the Egyptians,

Numbers 33:3

Then after the full moon, the last quarter of the moon was the beginning of the 22nd and 1/2 day of the Torah new moon, or day 22 to 23 of the month.

Then the beginning of the completely dark phase of the moon, which today we call a new moon, was the 30th day of the Torah new moon, or day 30 of the month.

And in this way there was a monthly cycle of Torah new moon to Torah new moon, which was 30 days each. Which happened independently than the weekly cycle of shabbath to shabbath, which was 7 days each. Which is contrary to a false teaching that exists that the moon was also given to indicate shabbaths, which is impossible, for 30 is not perfectly divisible by 7, meaning that new moons do not always coincide with shabbaths.

From one New Moon to another and from one shabbath to another, all flesh will come and bow down before me,” says Yehovah.

Isaiah 66:23

And aside from the names given to the months of the ancient calendar of the Torah, these months were also called by their generic names, which were New Moon One, New Moon Two, New Moon Three, New Moon Four, New Moon Five, New Moon Six, New Moon Seven, New Moon Eight, New Moon Nine, New Moon Ten, New Moon Eleven, and New Moon Twelve. Without a thirteenth month called New Moon Thirteen, because a New Moon Thirteen was not needed before in the ancient calendar of the Torah, because 12 Torah new moons was precisely 1 solar year.

In the second new moon, on the twenty-seventh day of the new moon, the earth had dried out.

Genesis 8:14

And the waters continued to abate until the tenth new moon; in the tenth new moon, on the first day of the new moon, the tops of the mountains were seen.

Genesis 8:5

And because the axis of the rotation of the earth is tilted relative to the sun, it causes 4 distinct and precise moments in the orbit of the earth around the sun. And one moment is when the sun is perpendicular with the most northern point on the earth it can reach, which is called a “solstice”. Which causes the northern hemisphere to receive more sunlight, so it is therefore hotter there. Which is the beginning of “summer” there. And daylight is also caused to be longer in duration there and nights are shorter in duration there. While in the opposing hemisphere, which is receiving less sunlight, it is colder there. So it is therefore the beginning of “winter” there. And daylight is also caused to be shorter in duration there and nights are longer in duration there. And as the earth earth continues to orbit counterclockwise the perpendicular point of the sun with the earth begins to travel south until it reaches the next moment around 3 months later. Which is when the sun is directly above and perpendicular to the equator of the earth, which is called an “equinox”. Which is when both the northern and southern hemispheres receives equal measures of sunlight, which causes cooler temperatures in the northern hemisphere and warmer temperatures in the southern hemisphere from the previous solstice. So it is therefore the beginning of “autumn” in the northern hemisphere and the beginning of “spring” in the southern hemisphere. So it is therefore the “autumnal equinox” of the northern hemisphere. And daylight is relatively equal in duration with the duration of night in both hemispheres depending on how far a place is from the equator. And as the earth continues its orbit the perpendicular point of the sun with the earth travels south of the equator until it reaches the next moment around 3 months later. Which is when the sun is perpendicular with the most southern point on the earth it can reach, which is another solstice. Which causes the southern hemisphere to receive more sunlight, so it is therefore hotter there. Which is the beginning of summer there. And daylight is also caused to be longer in duration there and nights are shorter in duration there. While in the opposing hemisphere, which is receiving less sunlight, it is colder there. So it is therefore the beginning of winter there. And daylight is also caused to be shorter in duration there and nights are longer in duration there. And as the earth earth continues to orbit the perpendicular point of the sun with the earth begins to travel north until it reaches the next moment around 3 months later. Which is when the sun is directly above and perpendicular to the equator of the earth again, which is another equinox, which is when both the northern and southern hemispheres receives equal measures of sunlight. Which causes cooler temperatures in the southern hemisphere and warmer temperatures in the northern hemisphere from the previous solstice. So it is therefore the beginning of spring in the northern hemisphere and the beginning of autumn in the southern hemisphere. So it is therefore the “vernal equinox” of the northern hemisphere. And daylight is relatively equal in duration with the duration of night in both hemispheres depending on how far a place is from the equator. And then the next month is another solstice again. And all these 4 distinct moments of the orbit of the earth happen in a continual cycle. And the seasons of the calendar of the Torah are according to the seasons of the northern hemisphere, for that is where Israel is on the earth. And in accordance to some of the oldest known Babylonian cuneiform tablets held in the British Museum, which are older than when the shadow miracle happened with Hezekiah, the vernal equinox of the northern hemisphere, which was the beginning of “spring” in the northern hemisphere, always happened in month 12 day 15 in the ancient Babylonian 360 day calendar before it was reformed and adopted by the sons of Israel during their exile in Babylon. Which tells us when the vernal equinox truly happened when years were formerly 360 days long, which was Addaru 15 in the Babylonian Calendar, which was New Moon Twelve Day 15 of the ancient calendar of the Torah. And then the next month of Nisannu 1 of the Babylonian calendar was New Moon One Day 1 of the ancient calendar of the Torah, or Aviv 1. Which is the month the first appointed time of the Torah happens in the year, beginning with the Passover. Which implies that Passover was always after the equinox, in the new moon after the new moon the equinox happened in. And ultimately it is the equinox that causes “spring” to happen, which then causes harvest to happen, which must be ready for the appointed times of the Torah. And that is why the new moon after the equinox was called “Aviv”, which means “spring”. Just like “Tel Aviv”, which means “Hill of Spring”. And that new moon after the equinox was therefore “New Moon One” of the Torah. So, we must therefore observe and determine the equinox, in the Jewish and Gregorian calendars, which are the most widely used in the world, to then determine when “New Moon One” is in our current length of years, as the Torah commands, “observe the new moon of Aviv”. And determining “New Moon One” then then also determines when all the appointed times of the Torah will happen for the rest of that year. And the Jewish calendar is superior than the Gregorian calendar, because the Jewish calendar begins each month at the beginning of each new moon, just as the ancient calendar of the Torah did. So it is easier to track the new moons using the Jewish calendar, where the new moon is always on the 1st day of any Jewish month, as opposed to using the Gregorian calendar, where new moons can happen any day of a Gregorian month. And if you are not familiar with the Jewish calendar I recommend that you begin to familiarize yourself with the Jewish calendar and memorize its months and relate its months to the Gregorian months. Which you can do by viewing a parallel view of the Gregorian calendar with the Jewish calendar, which are available at these following links.

Observe the new moon of Aviv…

Deuteronomy 16:1

This new moon shall be for you the beginning of new moons. It shall be the first new moon of the year for you.

Exodus 12:2

According to the older system, probably before 1000 BC, the spring equinox is Month 12 day 15, and the longest day is Month 3 day 15.

Also, we can see that the vernal equinox of Addaru 15 goes back even further in time before the change in the length of the solar years happened around 725 BC with Hezekiah, which then caused the vernal equinox to begin happening in the days of Nisannu after around 725 BC, which is why there are certain later Babylonian tablets, the MUL.APIN, that put the vernal equinox in the days of Nissanu, which is what we see reflected even today in the Jewish calendar where the vernal equinox happens frequently in Nisan.

Numerical schemes for the length of day and night are known from an Old Babylonian (early second millennium BC) tablet, BM 17175+17284, and the fourteenth tablet of the celestial omen series Enuma Anu Enlil. These schemes all assume a linear variation of the length of day and night between the extremes in the ratio of 2:1, with the solstices and equinoxes placed in the middle of months 3, 6, 9, and 12.

A period of 360 days, compromising 12 months of 30 days each at least by the third millennium BC, was assigned by the Mesopotamians to the year in days and months. The equinoxes were dated to the 15th of months 12 and 6. This complete scheme I entitle the “ideal year”.

Note: These are pictures of the Babylonian tablets that are in the British Museum. The tablets on the left are called “Enuma Anu Enlil BM 36905”. And the tablet on the right is called “BM 17175+17284”. They are very old, and tell us when the equinoxes happened when years were 360 days, which was in Addaru 15, which was New Moon Twelve Day 15 of the ancient calendar of the Torah, which was almost 30 days prior to the Passover in New Moon One Day 14. Also, this is merely a reference to external fragments of ancient history to help strengthen the statements made in this study, and not an endorsement of the British Museum, nor an endorsement of the beliefs of the Babylonians, nor any endorsement of anything else written on these fragments themselves.

As such, our modern definition of the “equinox” is not the ancient definition of the equinox, for our modern definition of the equinox is defined when the sun becomes perpendicular with the equator. Which is a modern imaginary line determined by man. And although the ancient civilizations probably knew that there was a middle point on the spherical earth that was closest to the sun than the furthest northern and southern points, which would be our “equator”, they did not base their calculation of their “equinoxes” on that middle point of the earth. But rather, on when the length of day became equal with the length of night, which would be what we call an “equilux”. Which according to our Roman hours of 24 hours, is when the length of daylight is nearest to 12 hours, and conversely the length of night would be nearest to 12 hours. Which is why what is written in those same Babylonian tablets that determined equinoxes are also measurements of length of day verses length of night for a day. To then determine their “equinox” based on the equivalence of day and night. And even in the latin word for “equinox” means “equal night”. And they determined an equal duration of day and night using water clocks to measure time. Or even large sundials to observe a lack of shadow when the sun was directly above and perpendicular, which was the equilux. And since the ancient calendar of the Torah is based on where Israel is located on the earth, then the “equilux” in the land of Israel is what we need to observe more specifically in our current length of years. Just as the ancient sons of Israel did in their own land of Israel. Or even the ancient Babylonians did in their own land in Babylon. Which was not too far off from the land of Israel in relation to the grand surface area of the entire earth. So the equinoxes of the Babylonians would’ve also been the same equinoxes of the sons of Israel. So it is not the general modern “equinox” of the earth that we need to observe, but the “equilux” of Israel. And the equilux in the land of Israel always happens in March 16th or March 17th in the Gregorian calendar, which is always before Nisan 14 in the Jewish calendar. Which implies that the sons of Israel in the Babylonian exile made the right decision in adopting the Babylonian calendar. For they would’ve known if Nisan 14 ever fell incorrectly before the vernal equilux in the new length of solar years of 365 and 1/4 days to not adopt that Babylonian calendar. For they knew the original 360 day calendar and when the vernal equilux happened then to then determine when New Moon One Day 14 would be in the new Babylonian calendar that they had to adopt because of the change in solar years. And so, Nisan is the true New Moon One of the Torah and Nisan 14 is the true time of the Passover every year. Which most Jews today already know. Except many people that distrust the Jewish calendar and either erroneously observe the modern equinox, or erroneously go out looking for aviv barley in Israel, which leads them to err by a month, if not more. And they do this not understanding the ancient 360 day calendar of the Torah nor that the ancient method of determining equinoxes was using measures of length of day and night to determine equivalence. Which is our modern definition of “equilux”. And the wise Jewish men of old passed down a good calendar to us that always insures that Nisan 14 happens after the equilux of Israel, as long as God chooses not to change our solar years again.

And by the time the season of “spring” begins barley has matured to a state called “aviv”, which is also why New Moon One of the Torah is called “Aviv”. Which is when barley becomes almost ripe but not quite ready for harvest. Which has a color that is almost yellow. Which is the state the ears of barley were in when Egypt was struck with hail perhaps a few weeks before the Passover.

The flax and the barley were struck down, for the barley was aviv and the flax was in bud. But the wheat and the spelt were not struck down, for they are late in coming up. So Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh and stretched out his hands to Yehovah, and the thunder and the hail ceased, and the rain no longer poured upon the earth.

Exodus 9:31-33

Observe the new moon of Aviv and keep the Passover to Yehovah your God, for in the new moon of Aviv Yehovah your God brought you out of Egypt by night.

Deuteronomy 16:1

Today, in the new moon of Aviv, you are going out.

Exodus 13:4

You shall keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, as I commanded you, at the time appointed in the new moon of Aviv, for in the new moon of Aviv you came out from Egypt.

Exodus 34:18

First, celebrate the Feast of Unleavened Bread. For seven days the bread you eat must be made without yeast, just as I commanded you, at the appointed time in the new moon of Aviv, for in it you came out of Egypt. No one may appear before me without an offering.

Exodus 23:15

And then around or after the Passover, barley finally becomes ripe and ready for harvest, as a result of the weather conditions of “spring”, which is caused by the equilux. Which happens in time for the next appointed time of the Torah shortly after the Passover. Which is the first fruits offering of barley. Which is when the first barley of the harvest is cut away with the sickle, hence “first fruits”. Which was measured in an “omer”. Which could then be offered either as “aviv roasted in fire”, if the barley was not brittle and mature enough, or as “crushed karmel”, if the barley was brittle and mature enough. Because the ripeness of barley could vary throughout the land of Israel. And this first fruits offering was given to the priests not only to wave a portion before God, but to also for them to eat the remaining portion that was not waved. For God assigned them that portion for serving God at the temple. And in this way, through giving the best of the produce of the land of Israel to the priests, God was honored.

If you offer an offering of firstfruits to Yehovah, you shall offer for the offering of your firstfruits aviv roasted with fire, or crushed karmel.

Leviticus 2:14

from the time the sickle cuts the standing grain.

Deuteronomy 16:9

And the day after the Passover, on that very day, they ate of the produce of the land, unleavened cakes and roasted grain.

Joshua 5:11

and he shall wave the omer before Yehovah, so that you may be accepted… 

Leviticus 23:11

Then Yehovah spoke to Aaron, “Behold, I have given you charge of the contributions made to me, all the set apart things of the people of Israel. I have given them to you as a portion and to your sons as an aeonial statute. This shall be yours of the most set-apart things kept from the fire: every offering of theirs, every grain offering of theirs and every sin offering of theirs and every transgression offering of theirs, which they render to me, shall be most set-apart to you and to your sons. In a set-apart place shall you eat it. Every male may eat it; it is set-apart to you. This also is yours: the contribution of their gift, all the wave offerings of the people of Israel. I have given them to you, and to your sons and daughters with you, as an aeonial statute. Everyone who is clean in your house may eat it. All the best of the oil and all the best of the wine and of the grain, the firstfruits of what they give to Yehovah, I give to you. The first ripe fruits of all that is in their land, which they bring to Yehovah, shall be yours. Everyone who is clean in your house may eat it. Every devoted thing in Israel shall be yours.

Numbers 18:8-14

And the first of all the firstfruits of all kinds, and every offering of all kinds from all your offerings, shall belong to the priests. You shall also give to the priests the first of your dough, that a blessing may rest on your house.

Ezekiel 44:30

Don’t you know that those who serve in the temple get their food from the temple, and that those who serve at the altar share in what is offered on the altar? 

1 Corinthians 9:13

And the first fruits offering of barley was done the next day after the following shabbath. Which could be anywhere from the 15th to the 21st day of New Moon One. Depending on whether the Passover of the 14th day fell on the seventh day of the week on the weekly shabbath, which would make the next day the 15th day the earliest the first fruits offering of barley could be, or if the 14th day of the Passover fell on the first day of the week, which would make the 21st day the latest the first fruits offering of barley could be. Which would be Nisan 15 to Nisan 21 in the Jewish calendar. Which is called “Yom HaBikkurim” in Hebrew, which means “day of the first fruits.

And Yehovah spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the people of Israel and say to them, When you come into the land that I give you and reap its harvest, you shall bring an omer of the firstfruits of your harvest to the priest, and he shall wave the omer before Yehovah, so that you may be accepted. On the day after the shabbath the priest shall wave it… 

Leviticus 23:9-11

Which the Mashiach fulfilled by becoming the first fruits among those resurrected from the dead to receive new immortal bodies.

For as in Adam all die, so also in the Mashiach shall all be made alive. But each in his own order: Mashiach the firstfruits, then at his coming those who belong to the Mashiach.

1 Corinthians 15:22-23

But in fact the Mashiach has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.

1 Corinthians 15:20

Which the Mashiach would’ve fulfilled on our Saturday after or around 6:00 PM our time, in the evening. Which would’ve been the evening that began the next day after the shabbath. Which is why when the women came to visit his tomb very early in the morning hours later on the first day of the week, which was on our Sunday, the Mashiach was already gone. Because the Mashiach was resurrected on the day of the first fruits offering of barley.

When the shabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him. And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. And they were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?” And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back—it was very large. And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe, and they were alarmed. And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Yeshuah of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him

Mark 16:1-6

Now after the shabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Master descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Yeshuah who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.

Matthew 28:1-6

But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Master Yeshuah. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead?  

Luke 24:1-5

Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Yeshuah loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Master out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him.”

John 20:1-2

And thus Yeshuah remained dead 3 days and 3 nights, exactly as he said he would be. Which was our Wednesday night, Thursday day, Thursday night, Friday day, Friday night, and Saturday day.

For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

Matthew 12:40

Which is why the women purchased spices for the body of Yeshuah after and before the shabbath. Which to the ordinary person who does not know the Torah seems like a contradiction. Yet this is so because the first shabbath, which was the high shabbath, began Wednesday night till Thursday night. And then the next shabbath, which was the weekly shabbath, began Friday night till Saturday night. Giving the women only Friday during the day to purchase the spices in the city and to also prepare them, after the high shabbath was over and before the weekly shabbath began. And then it was their intention to anoint the body of the Mashiach after the weekly shabbath was over, early Sunday morning. Yet when they came that morning to finally anoint his body, the Mashiach was already gone.

When the shabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him.

Mark 16:1

The women who had come with him from Galilee followed and saw the tomb and how his body was laid.
Then they returned and prepared spices and ointments. On the shabbath they rested according to the commandment. But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared.

Luke 23:55-24:1

In which case, 30 AD is a very specific year where the Passover lamb was sacrificed on a Wednesday. Which would thus fulfill “3 days and 3 nights” that the Mashiach remained dead after he was killed on the precise time the Passover lamb was sacrificed, until his resurrection on the “morrow after the shabbath”. Which was after or around 6:00 PM on a Saturday. Which agrees with various independent internet resources that the Nisan 14 in 30 AD was both on a Wednesday and also around the time of a full moon.

Note: These are merely calendar calculation screenshots taken from paulcarlisle.net, timeanddate.com, astropixels.com, and hebcal.com to help strengthen the statements made in this study, and not an endorsement of any of their views. The Nisan 14 calculation on a Wednesday in 30 AD is accurate, but the conversion from Jewish Calendar dates to Gregorian Calendar dates may not be accurate, which are not important to know with the precision to determine which day of the week Nisan 14 fell in a year. The full moon calculator is also an estimated date of the full moon based on advanced computer mathematical calculations, which is a close enough estimate to assert that the Nisan 14 of 30 AD was a Wednesday with a full moon or approaching full moon the next day, which transitioned into Thursday, which was Nisan 15, the middle of a 30 day Torah month of when a full moons were appointed to happen in the original 360 day Torah calendar.

And from the day the first fruits offering of barley is made, then 50 days are counted, including the day of the first fruits offering of barley, which is seven shabbaths.

You shall count seven full weeks from the day after the shabbath, from the day that you brought the omer of the wave offering. You shall count fifty days to the day after the seventh shabbath… 

Leviticus 23:15-16

You shall count seven weeks. Begin to count the seven weeks from the time the sickle is first put to the standing grain.

Deuteronomy 16:9

Which then reaches the next day after the 7th shabbath, which is the 50th day. Which is called the “Feast of Weeks”, or the “Feast of Harvest”, or “Pentecost”, or “Shavuot” in Hebrew. Which was on a day anywhere from the 5th to the 11th day of New Moon Three in the ancient calendar of the Torah. Depending on which day of the month the first fruits offering of barley was made 50 days prior. And Pentecost is now anywhere from Sivan 6 to Sivan 12 in the current Jewish calendar since Iyar only has 29 days. Which is when another first fruits offering is made from the next grain that becomes ready for harvest, which was wheat.

Then you shall present a grain offering of new grain to Yehovah. You shall bring from your dwelling places two loaves of bread to be waved, made of two tenths of an ephah. They shall be of fine flour, and they shall be baked with leaven, as firstfruits to Yehovah.

Leviticus 23:16-17

You shall observe the Feast of Weeks, the firstfruits of wheat harvest… 

Exodus 34:22

On the day of the firstfruits, when you offer a grain offering of new grain to Yehovah at your Feast of Weeks, you shall have a set-apart convocation. You shall not do any ordinary work,

Numbers 28:26

You shall keep the Feast of Harvest, of the firstfruits of your labor, of what you sow in the field

Exodus 23:16

Then you shall keep the Feast of Weeks to Yehovah your God with the tribute of a voluntary offering from your hand, which you shall give as Yehovah your God blesses you. And you shall rejoice before Yehovah your God, you and your son and your daughter, your male servant and your female servant, the Levite who is within your towns, the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow who are among you, at the place that Yehovah your God will choose, to make his name dwell there.

Deuteronomy 16:10-11

Which was fulfilled by the Mashiach when he sent his set-apart airflow to enter into and inhabit his disciples, which is the “anointing”. And that is why those who receive the anointing now are also called first fruits, because whoever receives the anointing now will participate in the 1st resurrection, and will be the first among the dead to receive immortal bodies.

When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the set-apart airflow and began to speak in other tongues as the airflow gave them utterance.

Acts 2:1-4

Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures.

James 1:18

…These have been purchased from mankind as first fruits for God and the Lamb

Revelation 14:4

Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality.

1 Corinthians 15:51-53

For the Master himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in the Mashiach will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Master in the air…

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

Blessed and set-apart is the one who shares in the first resurrection…

Revelation 20:6

Then in New Moon Seven Day 1 is the appointed time when trumpets are blasted. Which would be Tishri 1 in the Jewish calendar. Which is called “Yom Teruah” in Hebrew, which means “day of blasting”. Tishri 1 is also called “Rosh Hashanah” in Hebrew, which means, “head of the year”. Because that is when the current Jewish calendar begins a new year. Although the ancient calendar of the Torah began the new year on New Moon Seven Day 10 after the trumpet blasts. Which will be fulfilled by the Mashiach at his second coming, which is why his second coming is associated with the sound of trumpets. Which are the seven trumpets of Revelation, which will be blasted for 7 days, one trumpet a day, beginning in Tishri 1, until Tishri 7, in the year of his return.

On the first day of the seventh new moon you shall have a set-apart convocation. You shall not do any ordinary work. It is a day for you to blast the trumpets,

Numbers 29:1

Speak to the people of Israel, saying, In the seventh new moon, on the first day of the new moon, you shall have a shabbath-rest, a memorial proclaimed with blast of trumpets, a set-apart convocation.

Leviticus 23:24

Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven.And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven… with a loud trumpet call… 

Matthew 24:30-31

For the Master himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God… 

1 Thessalonians 4:16

When he opened the seventh seal… And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them. 

Revelation 8:1-2

The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earthA third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.

Revelation 8:7

The second angel blew his trumpet, and something like a great mountain, burning with fire, was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. A third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

Revelation 8:8

The third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many people died from the water, because it had been made bitter.

Revelation 8:10-11

Then the fourth angel blew his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, and a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkenedAnd there was no light for a third of the day and for a third of the night likewise.

Revelation 8:12

And at the fifth trumpet blast in Tishri 5 angels will be released not to kill, but to cause torment by forcing the inhabitants of the earth to undergo the plagues that come shortly after the trumpet blasts, by not letting men kill themselves. And so cause agony to all the inhabitants of the earth for up to 5 months while each man is judged and condemned to be thrown onto the lake of lava after the second coming of the Mashiach. Which is why their sting is figuratively like that of a “scorpion”, for a scorpion stings with its tail behind it just as the sting of these angels is what happens after them that they will force all men to undergo. Which are the plagues. Thus fulfilling the prophecy spoken by Isaiah.

The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss. When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss. And out of the smoke locusts came down on the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth…They were not allowed to kill them but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strike. And in those days people will seek death and will not find it. They will long to die, but death will flee from them… They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon and in Greek is Apollyon (that is, Destroyer)

Revelation 9:1-11

Then your covenant with death will be annulled, and your agreement with Sheol will not stand; when the overwhelming scourge passes through, you will be beaten down by it. As often as it passes through it will take you; for morning by morning it will pass through, by day and by night; and it will be sheer terror to understand the report.

Isaiah 28:18-19

And at the sixth trumpet blasts in Tishri 6 more angels will be released to kill a third of mankind, which is less wrath upon these men that die than the plagues that are about to be unleashed upon the living that remain.

Then the sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar before God, saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour, the day, the month, and the year, were released to kill a third of mankind. 

Revelation 9:13-15

And at the seventh trumpet blast in Tishri 7 the Mashiach will officially begin to rule the earth for 1,000 years, for the trumpet blasts are indeed the grand inauguration of his rulership on the earth. Yet the seventh trumpet blast is worse than any of the preceding trumpet blasts, for he will shatter the nations like pottery and bring agony upon the world with the plagues that are about to take place a few days thereafter.

And the seventh angel trumped. And there were great voice in the heaven, saying, The kingdom of the world is become of our Master, and of his Mashiach, and he shall reign into the aeons of the aeons.

Revelation 11:15

Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, and the ends of the earth your possession. You shall rule over them with a rod of iron and shatter them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

Psalm 2:8-9

…ruled with the Mashiach for a 1,000 years.

Revelation 20:4

Then in New Moon Seven Day 10 is the Day of Atonement, which is called “Yom Kippur” in Hebrew. Which is the true new year of the ancient calendar of the Torah, which would be Tishri 10 in the Jewish calendar.

The tenth day of this seventh new moon is the Day of Atonement. Hold a set-apart convocation and lower yourselves, and present an offering by fire to Yehovah. Do not do any work on that day, because it is the Day of Atonement, when atonement is made for you before Yehovah your God.

Leviticus 23:27-28

On the tenth day of this seventh new moon you shall have a set-apart convocation and lower yourselves. You shall do no work,

Numbers 29:7

Aaron shall offer the bull as a sin offering for himself, and shall make atonement for himself and for his house. He shall take the two goats and set them before Yehovah at the entrance of the tent of meeting; and Aaron shall cast lots on the two goats, one lot for Yehovah and the other lot for complete removal. Aaron shall present the goat on which the lot fell for Yehovah, and offer it as a sin offering; but the goat on which the lot fell for complete removal shall be presented alive before Yehovah to make atonement upon it, and then completely removed into the wilderness… When he has finished atoning at the set-apart place and the tent of meeting and the altar, he shall present the live goat. Then Aaron shall lay both his hands on the head of the live goat, and confess over it all the iniquities of the people of Israel, and all their transgressions, all their sins, putting them on the head of the goat, and sending it away into the wilderness by means of someone designated for the task. The goat shall bear on itself all their iniquities to a barren region; and the goat shall be set free in the wilderness… And it shall be an aeonial statute in the seventh new moon, on the tenth day of the new moon, you shall lower yourselves and shall do no work, either the native or the stranger who sojourns among you. For on this day shall atonement be made for you to clean you. You shall be clean before Yehovah from all your sins. It is a shabbath of shabbath-rest to you, and you shall lower yourselves; it is an aeonial statute. And the priest who is anointed and set apart as priest in his father’s place shall make atonement, wearing the set-apart linen garments. He shall make atonement at the set-apart place, at the tent of meeting, and at the altar, and he shall make atonement for the priests and for all the people of the assembly. And this shall be an aeonial statute for you, that atonement may be made for the people of Israel once in the year because of all their sins. And Aaron did as Yehovah commanded Moses.

Leviticus 16:6-34

Which will be fulfilled by the Mashiach when he sends his angels to gather his people throughout the earth, to be returned to the land of Israel where the Mashiach will be. Which is also when the resurrection of the dead happens. For the “last trumpet” blast where the dead are raised happens at the Day of Atonement. Which is not a trumpet but another type of wind instrument that the Greek word for trumpet can also refer to, the shofar yovel, which is the horn of a ram. Which is the Yovel year when each man returns to his family property. Which happens every 50 years. Which is the day many believers call the “rapture”. And because many of them do not know the appointed times of the Torah they do not know when it will happen in relation to the second coming of the Mashiach.

Then have the shofar sounded everywhere on the tenth day of the seventh new moon; on the Day of Atonement sound the shofar throughout your land. Set apart the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a yovel for you; each of you is to return to your family property and to your own clan. The fiftieth year shall be a yovel for you; do not sow and do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the untended vines.

Leviticus 25:9-11

Behold, I speak a mystery to you; we shall not all indeed sleep, but all shall be changed, in an instant, in the blink of an eye, at the last trumpet. For it shall trump, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For it is necessary this corruption to put on incorruptibility, and this mortal to put on immortality. But whenever this corruptible should have put on incorruptibility, and this mortal should have put on immortality, then shall come to pass the word having been written, Death was swallowed down in victory.

1 Corinthians 15:51-54

This is because the Master himself will come down from heaven with the signal of a shout by the head angel and a blast on God’s trumpet. First, those who are dead in the Mashiach will rise. Then, we who are living and still around will be taken up together with them in the clouds to meet with the Master in the air. That way we will always be with the Master. 

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his chosen from the four airflows, from one end of the heavens to the other.

Matthew 24:30-31

In that day Yehovah will thresh from the flowing Euphrates to the Wadi of Egypt, and you, Israel, will be gathered up one by one. And in that day a great shofar will be blown

Isaiah 27:12-13

He will raise a banner for the nations and gather the exiles of Israel; he will assemble the scattered people of Judah from the four quarters of the earth.

Isaiah 11:12

And on that same day the Mashiach will send another set of angels to capture those that belong to the house of Israel and house of Judah that refused to believe in Yeshuah. Which would be modern day Jews. From the entire land of Israel. To be trampled.

The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil.

Matthew 13:41

I tell you, many will come from east and west and recline at table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven, while the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Matthew 8:11-12

Then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in your presence, and you taught in our streets.’ But he will say, ‘I tell you, I do not know where you come from. Depart from me, all you workers of evil!’ There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God but you yourselves cast out.

Luke 13:26-28

I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding grain together; one will be taken and the other left.” “Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other will be left.” And they said to him, “Where, Master?” He said to them, “Where the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.” 

Luke 17:34-37

What more was there to do for my vineyard, that I have not done in it? When I looked for it to yield grapes, why did it yield wild grapes? And now I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard. I will remove its hedge, and it shall be devoured; I will break down its wall, and it shall be trampled down… For the vineyard of Yehovah of armies is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah are his pleasant planting; and he looked for justice, but behold, bloodshed; for righteousness, but behold, an outcry!

Isaiah 5:4-7

Swing the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, trample the grapes, for the winepress is full and the vats overflow– so great is their wickedness! 

Joel 3:13

Who is this coming from Edom, from Bozrah, with his garments stained? Who is this, clothed in glory, striding forward in the greatness of his strength? “It is I, proclaiming victory, mighty to save.” Why are your garments red, like those of one who sets foot on a winepress? “I have set foot on the winepress alone, and have brought the peoples to nothing, for I marched to them in my anger and trampled them down in my wrath. Their blood spattered my garments, and I stained all my clothing. 

Isaiah 63:1-3

Because these two gatherings, those gathered to the Mashiach to be delivered, and those gathered to be trampled, are the fulfillment of two different harvests of the Torah that become ready for gathering by the Day of Atonement. Which is the turn of the year. For even though the new moons of the Torah begin at the beginning of spring, the new years of the Torah begin at the Day of Atonement. Which is why Yovel years begin on that day. And the first harvest was another type of grain, perhaps spelt, which was threshed on a threshing floor. And the other harvest was grapes, which was pressed in a winepress.

after the ingathering from your threshing-floor and from your winepress 

Deuteronomy 16:13

…at the turn of the year when you gather in the fruit of your labors from the field.

Exodus 23:16

Which is the fulfillment of a prophecy in Revelation concerning these two different harvests, grain and grapes. The grain harvest is gathered by the “one seated on the cloud”, which is the Mashiach, who gathers his own people who believed. Which are Gentiles, and indeed also a remnant of Jews, and also those among the dead who are his. Whereas the grape harvest, which is all the Jews who disbelieved in Yeshuah throughout the land of Israel, will all be gathered to be trampled. Yet Jerusalem will be spared, which is why the Jews are trampled outside the “city”, which is Jerusalem. For towards the end Jerusalem will indeed come to the belief in Yeshuah. Yet for the many Jews that will die in this way this is indeed a tragic death, for the Mashiach they are expecting to come does not come to save them, but to kill them. Because all this time for around 2,000 years since they delivered him up to be crucified they still reject him. Yet their death is less wrath than the plagues the living that remain are about to endure shortly thereafter. For at the very least the Jews have the Torah, but the Gentiles live in torahlessness. Even many who claim to be believers. Which is worse than disbelief. Which is why worse wrath will come upon them.

Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and seated on the cloud one like a son of man, with a golden crown on his head, and a sharp sickle in his hand. Then another angel came out of the temple and called in a loud voice to him who was sitting on the cloud, “Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” So he who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested… Then another angel came out of the temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle. And another angel came out from the altar, the angel who has authority over the fire, and he called with a loud voice to the one who had the sharp sickle, “Put in your sickle and gather the clusters from the vine of the earth, for its grapes are ripe.” So the angel swung his sickle across the earth and gathered the grape harvest of the earth and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trodden outside the city, and blood flowed from the winepress, as high as a horse’s bridle, for 1,600 stadia. 

Revelation 14:15-20

And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem an airflow of favor and pleas for mercy, so that, when they look on me, on him whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for an only child, and weep bitterly over him, as one weeps over a firstborn.

Zechariah 12:10

And then the “Feast of Tabernacles” happens in New Moon Seven Day 15, which is also called the “Feast of Ingathering”, because it happens after the preceding two harvests are gathered. Which is called “Sukkot” in Hebrew. Which would be Tishri 15 in the Jewish calendar.

You are to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days after the ingathering from your threshing-floor and from your winepress 

Deuteronomy 16:13

also the Feast of the Ingathering at the turn of the year when you gather in the fruit of your labors from the field.

Exodus 23:16

So beginning with the fifteenth day of the seventh new moon, after you have gathered the crops of the land, celebrate the feast to Yehovah for seven days; the first day is a day of shabbath-rest, and the eighth day also is a day of shabbath-rest. On the first day you are to take branches from luxuriant trees–from palms, willows and other leafy trees–and rejoice before Yehovah your God for seven days. Celebrate this as a festival to Yehovah for seven days each year. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come; celebrate it in the seventh new moon. Live in tabernacles for seven days: All native-born Israelites are to live in such shelters so your descendants will know that I had the Israelites live in tabernacles when I brought them out of Egypt. I am Yehovah your God.

Leviticus 23:39-43

Which will be fulfilled by the Mashiach when he takes his people that have been gathered to a mountain, to feast and take shelter. For the wrath of God will also be poured on the earth for seven days, beginning in Tishri 15, to Tishri 21.

He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters… He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me. Yehovah has dealt with me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands he has rewarded me.

Psalm 18:16-20

But your dead will live, Yehovah; their bodies will rise– let those who dwell in the dust wake up and shout for joy– your dew is like the dew of the morning; the earth will give birth to her dead. Go, my people, enter your rooms and shut the doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until his wrath has passed by. See, Yehovah is coming out of his dwelling to punish the people of the earth for their sins. The earth will disclose the blood shed on it; the earth will conceal its slain no longer.

Isaiah 26:19-21

And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people, then there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to aeonial life, and some to shame and aeonial contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars aeonially and beyond. 

Daniel 12:1-3

On this mountain Yehovah Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine– the best of meats and the finest of wines. On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; he will swallow up death… The Master Yehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove his people’s disgrace from all the earth. Yehovah has spoken. In that day they will say, “Surely this is our God; we trusted in him, and he saved us. This is Yehovah, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.” The hand of Yehovah will rest on this mountain; but Moab will be trampled in their land as straw is trampled down in the manure.

Isaiah 25:6-10

I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 8:11

For the Feast of Tabernacles not only came with a command to dwell in tabernacles, but also a command to pour wine on the altar with golden bowls for seven days. Which is the seven bowls of Revelation. Which happens for 7 days, one plague for each day. Which is wine that is poured on the earth using golden bowls. And at the first bowl of wrath men will be struck will boils that will begin the appointed time of agony for the inhabitants of the earth for up to 5 months. And men will gnaw their tongues because of the agony of the boils and will not be able to kill themselves. And will this thus be the sting of the angels released at the 5th trumpet blast.

And you shall make its plates and dishes for incense, and its flagons and bowls with which to pour drink offerings; you shall make them of pure gold.

Exodus 25:29

and give two quarts of wine as a liquid offering. This will be a special gift, a pleasing aroma to Yehovah.

Numbers 15:10

Along with it you must present the proper liquid offering of one quart of alcoholic drink with each lamb, poured out in the Set-Apart Place as an offering to Yehovah.

Numbers 28:7

On the fifteenth day of the seventh month you shall have a set-apart convocation. You shall not do any ordinary work, and you shall keep a feast to Yehovah seven days. And you shall offer an ascending offering, a food offering, with a pleasing aroma to Yehovah, thirteen bulls from the herd, two rams, fourteen male lambs a year old; they shall be without blemish… and its drink offering… “On the second day twelve bulls from the herd, two rams, fourteen male lambs a year old without blemish… and their drink offerings… “On the third day eleven bulls, two rams, fourteen male lambs a year old without blemish… and its drink offering… “On the fourth day ten bulls, two rams, fourteen male lambs a year old without blemish… and its drink offering… “On the fifth day nine bulls, two rams, fourteen male lambs a year old without blemish… and its drink offering… “On the sixth day eight bulls, two rams, fourteen male lambs a year old without blemish… and its drink offerings… “On the seventh day seven bulls, two rams, fourteen male lambs a year old without blemish… and its drink offering.

Numbers 29:12-34

he also will drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured full strength into the cup of his anger

Revelation 14:10

Then I looked and saw that the Temple in heaven, God’s Tabernacle, was thrown wide open. The seven angels who were holding the seven plagues came out of the Temple. They were clothed in spotless white linen with gold sashes across their chests

Revelation 15:5

And one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God, the One living to the aeons of the aeons. And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from His power; and no one was able to enter into the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.

Revelation 15:7-8

The first angel went and poured out his bowl on the land, and evil and agonizing boils broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast and worshiped its image.

Revelation 16:2

The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead person, and every living thing in the sea died.

Revelation 16:3

The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.

Revelation 16:4

The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was allowed to scorch people with fire.

Revelation 16:8

The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and its kingdom was plunged into darkness. People gnawed their tongues in agony and cursed the God of heaven because of their agonies and their boils, but they refused to repent of what they had done. 

Revelation 16:10-11

The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphratesand its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East. Then I saw three impure airflows that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. They are demonic airflows that perform signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty… And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.

Revelation 16:12-16

And at the last plague all the cities of the earth will collapse with the greatest earthquake the world has ever seen, and in this way the Mashiach will literally shatter the nations.

The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, “It is done!” Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since mankind has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake… the cities of the nations collapsed… Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. From the sky huge hailstones, each weighing about a hundred pounds, fell on people. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible.

Revelation 16:17-21

Then the 8th day of the Feast of Tabernacles in Tishri 22 is the next appointed time of the Torah. For although the Torah commanded that the sons of Israel dwell in tabernacles for 7 days beginning in Tishri 15 to Tishri 21, the Torah commanded a set-apart assembly on the 8th day. Which is called “Shemini Atzeret” in Hebrew. Which the Mashiach will fulfill with his marriage supper, which is the Battle of Armageddon, for the birds of the air will feast on the flesh of all of those who die in Megiddo, “the marriage supper of the lamb”. For the kings of the earth will war against the Mashiach with their weapons in Megiddo, with tanks and missiles and fighter jets, yet the Mashiach will kill them by the mere word of his mouth, which is his greatest weapon, in the presence of his own people behind him. And that is why at the 6th bowl of wrath in Tishri 20 the Euphrates river is dried up, to make way for the kings of the east to come to war against the Mashiach, which will happen 2 days later in Tishri 22 in Megiddo. For by this time the nations will be enraged by everything that has happened to them. And will foolishly come to try to kill the Mashiach and his people.

On the eighth day you shall have a solemn assembly. You shall not do any ordinary work,

Numbers 29:35

For seven days you shall present offerings by fire to Yehovah. On the eighth day you shall hold a holy convocation and present an offering by fire to Yehovah. It is a solemn assembly; you shall not do any ordinary work.

Leviticus 23:36

And day by day, from the first day to the last day, he read from the Book of the Torah of God. They kept the feast seven days, and on the eighth day there was a solemn assembly, according to the rule.

Nehemiah 8:18

Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against Yehovah and against his anointed, saying, “Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.” He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Master holds them in derision. Then he will speak to them in his wrath, and terrify them in his fury, saying, “As for me, I have set my King on Zion, my set-apart mountain.”

Psalm 2:1-6

And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.

Revelation 16:16

Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords. Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and with a loud voice he called to all the birds that fly directly overhead, “Come, gather for the great supper of God, to eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all men, both free and slave, both small and great.”

Revelation 19:11-18

And so, from the descent of the second coming of the Mashiach in the morning of Elul 22, which precedes the first trumpet blast in Tishri 1 by 7 and 1/2 days, which is a prophetic 1/2 hour, which is 360 divided by 24 then divided by 2, to the last bowl of wrath of Revelation in Tishri 22 after the seven trumpet blasts, it will be around 29 and 1/2 days. Which are very quick displays of power and wrath and destruction upon the earth, which is what the “great tribulation” truly is. The destruction associated with the second coming of the Mashiach. Which is contrary to what many believers believe and teach regarding the great tribulation, because they do not know the appointed times of the Torah nor understand the truth. And will be among those swallowed up by the destruction soon to come.

When the Lamb opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. Then I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them.

Revelation 8:1-2

For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark. And they were oblivious, until the flood came and swept them all away. So will it be at the coming of the Son of Man.

Matthew 24:37-39

At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people, everyone whose name is found written in the book, will be delivered.

Daniel 12:1

For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now, and never to be equaled again. “If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Mashiach!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false mashiachs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you ahead of time. “So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the wilderness,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 

Matthew 24:21-27

For in those days there will be such tribulation as has not been from the beginning of the creation that God created until now, and never will be. And if the Master had not cut short the days, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect, whom he chose, he shortened the days.

Mark 13:19-20

and to you being oppressed, repose with us at the revelation of the Master Yeshuah from heaven, with his mighty angels, in a fire of flame, inflicting vengeance on those not knowing God and on those not obeying the gospel of our Master Yeshuah, who will suffer the penalty of aeonial destruction away from the presence of the Master and from the glory of his power, when in that day he shall come to be glorified in his set-apart ones, and to be marveled at among all those having believed because our testimony to you was believed,

2 Thessalonians 1:7-10

Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth.

Revelation 3:10

and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, Yeshuah who delivers us from the wrath to come.

1 Thessalonians 1:10

And finally, after the inhabitants of the earth have endured all this, and are left in continual agony with their boils and with everything around them in rubble, then the Mashiach will send angels to gather all of them. To bring them to the Valley of Jehoshaphat on the east side of Jerusalem, to judge them. And then they will be condemned to be thrown onto a lake of lava that will form on the south side of Jerusalem, in the Valley of Hinnom, which is Gehenna. To die in even greater agony than the boils themselves. And thus they will cease to exist, for the lake of lava will destroy both body and soul.

When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world… “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the aeonial fire prepared for the devil and his angels.

Matthew 25:31-41

I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.

Joel 3:2

This is how it will be at the end of the aeon. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous and throw them into the blazing furnace

Matthew 13:49-50

…declares Yehovah, whose fire is in Zion, and whose furnace is in Jerusalem.

Isaiah 31:9

And if your eye should cause you to stumble, cast it out; it is better for you to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes, to be cast into Gehenna, where ‘their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.’

Mark 9:47-48

And you should not be afraid of those killing the body but not being able to kill the soul. Indeed rather you should fear the One being able to destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.

Matthew 10:28
This paragraph is generated by a script developed by me that automatically calculates the current date. The current date of August 15, 2020 AD according to the Gregorian Calendar on Saturday at 9:55 AM in Jerusalem is Av 25, 5993 YB, based on the month and day of the Jewish Calendar, but not the year. "YB" means "Year from the Beginning", which represents the true year since the beginning of the creation, not the Anno Mundi year used by the Jewish Calendar, which says we are in the year of 5780 AM. There are less than 7 years until the second coming of the Mashiach in 6000 YB in 2026 AD around the autumn. The true new year of the Torah begins in the 10th day of the month of Tishri, on the Day of Atonement, which is Yom Kippur, not on the appointed time of the trumpet blasts on the 1st day of the month of Tishri, which is Rosh Hashanah, which is when new years happen incorrectly in the Jewish calendar. And the new year of the Torah happens around the autumn of the Northern Hemisphere, around September or October in the Gregorian calendar. In the Gregorian year of 2020 AD around September 27 it will be the start of 5994 YB.

Note: I recommend reading this bible study, which gives a precise timeline of when we can expect the second coming of Yeshuah to happen, along with the 7 trumpets of Revelation and 7 bowls of wrath and the “rapture”.

6 questions

  • if you claim the early calendar of biblical history was 360 days per year, 30 days per month, you would be easily proven wrong, using Gods word. For example, you claim the time of Noah had a 360 day year, of 30 days per month each, the bible says you are wrong.

    The flood started on the 27th day of the 2nd month. When the rain started, were told that heavens flood gates also opened, and the ground sprung up its fierce water. This by definition means that the waters were “prevailing” on the same day that the rain started. So the rain lasted 40 days and 40 nights, and the waters began to “prevail” on the same day, but the waters prevailed for 150 days. Which takes us to the 27th day of the 7th month. The waters then “abated”, or decreased for 150 days. During this 150 day period of decreasing, the mountain tops became visible. Also, the raven and dove were sent out. The dove was sent out 3 separate times spanning 21 days. The 2nd time the dove was sent out, were told it brought back an olive branch. Noah sent it out its 3rd time and it did not return, signifying that the waters had completely decreased, ending the 150 abating period. Were told the end of this 7 day period was actually the 1st day of the new year, Noahs 601st year. So now we have an exact day count spanning from the 27th day of the 2nd month, to the 1st day of the new year. 300 days. But remember, the 300th day was actually the 1st day of the new year (Noahs 601st), we don’t want to count that day, were only concerned about the days from Noahs 600th year. So were at 299 total days. Add now the first 26 days of the 2nd month, and we get 325 days so far. Now we just have to add the days of the 1st month. Hebrew days had either 29 or 30 days, so lets assume the 1st month had 29 days. add 29+325=354 days. the exact amount of days in a Hebrew lunar year consisting on 12 months. Not 360, not 364, not 365, not 366, but exactly 354 days! This proves, with biblical evidence given to us by God, that your wrong about the year during Noahs life consisting of 360 days, with 30 days per month. test everything

    • Hi Kepha. First, the flood began in the 17th day of the 2nd month, not the 27th day of the 2nd month. Perhaps you copied and pasted from somewhere and forgot to check what the actual bible teaches.

      In the 600th year of Noah’s life, in the 2nd month, on the 17th day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep burst forth, and the windows of the heavens were opened.
      Genesis 7:11.

      Second, the 150 days ended on the 17th day of the 7th month, not the 27th day of the 7th month. Looks like you didn’t bother to check this date either in the actual bible.

      and the waters receded from the earth continually. At the end of 150 days the waters had abated, and in the 7th month, on the 17th day of the month, the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat.
      Genesis 8:3

      Third, from the month 2 day 17 to month 7 day 17 was 150 days, which proves months were 30 day each, 5×30=150, and in biblically proving months were 30 days each, and since we know biblical months were based on lunations from one new moon to the next new moon, we subsequently also prove years were 360 days, for the original 360 day solar year calendar had 30 day lunar months. This is simple math and connecting dots. Not only are your dates and numbers all wrong, but your 354 day derivation from the flood story is quite arbitrary. I could just as easily say from month 2 day 17 to month 2 day 27 of the next year was 1,00 days. I would be making up a number and proving my own self by my own made up number, which is essentially what you did by saying that the flood story indicates a 354 day calendar, hence arbitrary. Also, a 354 day calendar is completely illogical, both now and in ancient times, because all calendars, whether lunar or solar, have always been based on 1 solar year, because the seasons depend on the solar year, and agriculture depends on the seasons. Would a 100 day calendar every make sense? No, because solar years were never 100 days, and the seasons would always be off and people would never know when to reap nor sow. So the solar year has always been important in any calendar, both now and in ancient times, because seasons depend on the solar year. And I include ancient lunar calendars also in their dependence of a solar year because 12 lunar months were essentially 1 solar year in antiquity, so lunar calendars were intrinsically also solar. 360 days = 1 solar year = 12 lunations of 30 days. It was the perfect calendar, measured perfectly by God. A believer should have more reason to believe this, not disbelieve it, unless of course, your belief and understanding of the power of God is so little that you think God incapable of measuring time so precisely, as historically evidenced in all the ancient 360 day calendars, not just the bible 360 day calendar. And it’s precisely for that reason that the Babylonian calendar was adopted by the Jews, to resynchronize the lunar months with the solar year, which adds an Adar 2 every few years to accomplish this. What you have done is erroneously derive a number of 354 days from this Babylonian calendar by summing 12 of its months to try to illogically relate that to the flood story to then try to illogically say that man used a 354 day calendar, which has never been the length of a solar year anytime in the history of the earth, which is why your assumption is completely illogical, aside from the way your derived your assumption. You’re clearly way over your head in all of this, without any understanding in any of this, so I suggest you let yourself be taught what is logical and true by people like myself who have researched this topic thoroughly, hence the detailed bible study. But I doubt you will listen to me, because rather than initially come to me with questions to try to understand and become wiser, you came at me with rejection and an imposition of your own erroneous assumptions, thinking yourself wiser, when you clearly are not. I have indeed “tested” everything I teach here. Which is why unlike you, I have also cited academic and ancient historical sources to prove that everything I have said is true, and also given a valid explanation of why the years changed. I cannot force anyone to believe nor understand what I teach. Not everyone sees the value of pearls, which is why we are instructed to now throw pearls to pigs. I’ve already wasted enough pearls by publishing my bible studies publicly on the internet. So, take what I say or leave it.

  • Here is the date quote I looked at: “The current date of January 13, 2020 AD according to the Gregorian Calendar on…”

    I linked to your page yesterday because of he many quotes from “Worlds in Collision”, and the many similarities elsewhere.

    • Hey Lonnie, that text you quoted from is auto generated by a script I placed for the page. It is not the publish date of my article but the current date, in Jerusalem. That’s why it showed 1-13-20 because Jerusalem time is ahead of us on this side of the world in the west. And the reason I display Jerusalem time is because that is where prophetic time is based from, Jerusalem. I suggest you look at my research on why 2026 would be the correct date of the year 6000, and not 2027. You’re really close, and for that I give you credit.
