It’s been a while since I posted anything. Life happens. . . and you follow Him through it as the road weaves in and out and paints the world in front of you vivid colors of who He is and who He is not.
Recently I have been learning about time. Time is so precious and delicate–like a flower. You see a flower sprout from just a small seed, bloom into something beautiful, and then it displays it’s beauty for just a while, and finally the flower begins to fade off to never be remembered–or will it?
Did you know that when the earth was created that God created a time table too for us to follow? Currently we understand it as Sunday-Saturday. But this was a calendar set up by man not our Creator. The calendar link at the top is a calendar that you can print off and follow for the 2016 year that was set up how Yahweh intended it to be.
Here is a concise breakdown how the calendar of Yahweh was lost. It’s time it be restored.
The Enoch Calender is shown in the 1st Book Of Enoch and was given by the Angel Uriel, and is the original Priestly Calendar that was used in the Torah. The Enoch Calendar is a 12-Month Solar Calendar having 364 Days Only, and it was used by the antediluvian patriarchs and by Noah, Abraham, and Jacob. It was taught to Moses by the Angel of the LORD and it continued in effect through the 2nd Temple period under Ezra and Nehemiah. It was the official Hebrew calendar until the 2nd Century BCE, when King Antiochus IV Epiphanes ended the use of the Enoch Calendar and forced the Hebrew people (sons of Eber/Heber) to observe the Lunar Calendar.
The New Moon Calendar was the official calendar of the Greeks, and when “Alexander the Great” conquered the middle in the 4th century BCE, the Lunar Calendar was introduced and was gradually accepted by most of the people, except for the Hebrew people. In 172, King Antiochus appointed Menelaus, as Jerusalem’s High Priest, to introduce the Greek way of educating the young people, and to completely Hellenize the Hebrew people. He also sent a Senator from Athens to give the Hebrew people an ultimatum, to forsake the Laws of their God Jesus and follow the Kings orders or to be put to death, so most of the Hebrew people followed the Kings orders to save their families, and many were put to death. King Antiochus forced the Hebrew people to celebrate the “Birthday of the Month,” every month, at the time of the moon’s first visibility.
Hephaistio of Thebes was an astrologer in the 5th Century CE, who compiled the historical Hellenistic Astrology Records in his research work called “Apotelesmatics.” Hephaistio quotes King Antiochus saying that the New Moon is the time when the “Moon is Born” and is the “Birthday of the Month:”
But Antiochus of Athens says also that this method has a certain truth to it. “Observe,” he says “On a given day that the Moon is Born” and to this number add 180 and always deduct 29 from the Birthday [γενέθλιον] of the Month.
(Apotelesmatics, Hephaistio of Thebes, Book I,Vol VI, Compendium, tr. Robert H.Schmidt & Robert Hand 1994 p.82 lines 21-24)
In 167 BCE, when King Antiochus returned to Jerusalem after his campaign in Egypt, he immediately banned the Hebrew religion and the Enoch Calendar, and prohibited all religious practices. He dedicated the Temple in Jerusalem to Zeus, the Lord of Heaven (Baal Shamen), and ordered the people to worship Zeus. Forty Five days later, he began sacrificing swine and making abominable offerings on the altar, and this began the Maccabean revolt (1.Maccabees Chapter 1 and 2.Maccabees Chapters 4, 6 and 7):
2 Maccabees 6:7 On the Monthly Birthday Celebration, the king had the Jews taken, under bitter constraint, to partake of the sacrifices; and when the feast of Dionysus came, they were forced to walk in the procession in honor of Dionysus, wearing wreaths of ivy.
1 Maccabees 1:41-51 Then the king wrote to his whole kingdom that all should be one people, 42 and that each should give up his customs. 43 All the Gentiles accepted the command of the king. Many even from Israel gladly adopted his religion; they sacrificed to idols and profaned the sabbath. 44 And the king sent letters by messengers to Jerusalem and the cities of Judah; he directed them to follow customs strange to the land, 45 to forbid burnt offerings and sacrifices and drink offerings in the sanctuary, to profane sabbaths and feasts, 46 to defile the sanctuary and the priests, 47 to build altars and sacred precincts and shrines for idols, to sacrifice swine and unclean animals, 48 and to leave their sons uncircumcised. They were to make themselves abominable by everything unclean and profane, 49 so that they should forget the law and change all the ordinances. 50 “And whoever does not obey the command of the king shall die.” 51 In such words he wrote to his whole kingdom. And he appointed inspectors over all the people and commanded the cities of Judah to offer sacrifice, city by city.
King Antiochus died 1,335 days after he dedicated the Temple to Zeus and 1,290 days after he sacrificed swine on Gods Altar. It happened in exactly 350 years, as Daniel said; from the time King Darius began his reign in 521 BCE to the time King Antiochus enforced his Hellenization policies on the people in 171 BCE. The Jubilee Timing is 350 years, (Time = 100, Times = 200, ½ Time = 50), or 7 Jubilees:
Daniel 7:25 He will say commands against that of the Most High, and harass the holy ones of the Most High. His intent is to change the times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
Daniel 12:7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and swore by him that lives for ever, that it shall be for a time, times, and an half, when he shall have accomplished to shatter the power of the holy people, and put an end to it.
Daniel 12:11-13 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away and the abomination that makes desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. 12 Blessed is he that waits and comes to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.13 But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.
The Book of Jubilees was written during this time and it preserved the Enoch Calendar. It warned the Hellenistic Jews to guard themselves against keeping the Athenian Calendar that begins the year on the first New Moon after the Summer Solstice. The writers of the Book of Jubilees feared that if the Hebrew people observed the Athenian Calendar and King Antiochus’ monthly New Moon Birthday Festival that begins the Greek months, that they would forget the Enoch Calendar and Gods months that end the year on the Spring Equinox, They would lose track of their Sabbath Day and forget their monthly Festivals.
Jubilees 6:34-38 And all the children of Israel will forget and will not find the path of the years, and will forget the Months, and Seasons, and Sabbaths and they will go wrong as to all the order of the years. For I know and from henceforth will I declare it unto thee, and it is not of my own devising; for the book (lies) written before me, and on the heavenly tablets the division of days is ordained, lest they forget the feasts of the covenant and walk according to the feasts of the Gentiles after their error and after their ignorance. For there will be those who will assuredly “MAKE OBSERVATIONS OF THE MOON −how (it) DISTURBS THE SEASONS and comes in from year to year ten days too soon.
For this reason the years will come upon them when they will Disturb (the order), and make an Abominable (Day) the Day of Testimony, and an Unclean Day a Feast Day, and they will confound all the days, the holy with the unclean, and the unclean day with the holy; for THEY WILL GO WRONG AS TO THE MONTHS AND SABBATHS AND FEASTS AND JUBILEES. For this reason I command and testify to thee that thou mayst testify to them; for after thy death thy children will disturb (them), so that they will not make the year Three Hundred and Sixty−Four Days Only, and for this reason they will go Wrong as to the Months and Seasons and Sabbaths and Festivals, and they will eat all kinds of blood with all kinds of flesh.
The Birthday of the Month Festival was observed by most of the Hebrew people because they feared King Antiochus. After the death of King Antiochus, in 164 BCE, the Hebrew priests tried to restore the Solar Calendar, although the Greek New Moon influence was all around them. Later, in 359 CE, Hillel II introduced the fixed calculated New Moon Calendar that is based on the conjunction of the earth, moon, and sun, and this Lunar Calendar has been used by Jews and others to this day, to determine the 1st Day of the Months and the Annual Feast Days. However, the term “New Moon” (yareach chadash יָרֵחַ חָדָשׁ) is Not Written anywhere in the Hebrew Scriptures. The Scriptures only use the word “month” (chodesh חֹדֶשׁ) and it pertains to a Solar Month. The translators mixed up a few of the Hebrew words due to vowel point errors, like CHODESH חֹדֶשׁ which means either “month/s” or “new month” and the word CHADASH חָדָשׁ which means “New.” They also confused the word YERACH יֶרַח which means “Month,” as in a “Complete Month,” with the word YAREACH יָרֵחַ which means “Moon,” and this is where the translation error of New Moon came into the various books and bibles, as it was commonly known that the Hebrew people observed the New Moon and kept a New Moon Festival every month. However, observing the New Moon is not commanded in the Torah, nor is the term “New Moon” ever mentioned in the whole Tanach when you look at the original Hebrew text, and the word moon (yareach) is only mentioned THREE times in the Torah, of which two times are warnings not to worship or serve the moon:
Deuteronomy 4:15-19 Take therefore good heed to yourselves; for you saw no manner of form on the day that JESUS spoke to you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire. 16 Lest you corrupt yourselves, and make yourself an engraved image in the form of any figure, the likeness of male or female, 17 the likeness of any animal that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged bird that flies in the sky, 18 the likeness of anything that creeps on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the water under the earth; 19 and lest you lift up your eyes to the sky, and when you see the sun and the Moon and the stars, even all the host of the sky, and be drawn away to worship and serve them, which JESUS your God has allotted to all the peoples under the whole sky.
Deuteronomy 17:2-5 If there be found in the midst of you, within any of your gates which JESUS your God gives you, man or woman, who does that which is evil in the sight of JESUS your God, in transgressing his covenant, 3 and has gone and served other gods, and worshiped them, or the sun, or the Moon, or any of the host of the sky, which I have Not commanded; 4 and it be told you, and you have heard of it, then shall you inquire diligently; and, behold, if it be true, and the thing certain that such abomination is done in Israel, 5 then shall you bring forth that man or that woman, who has done this evil thing, to your gates, and that man or the woman you shall stone to death with stones.
Genesis 37:9 He dreamed yet another dream, and told it to his brothers, and said, “Behold, I have dreamed yet another dream: and behold, the sun and the Moon and eleven stars bowed down to me.”
Later, when the Hebrew people adopted the Julian Calendar in 45 BCE, the 7 Day Week continued as usual and the Names of the Week Days remained the same, so the Hebrew people felt that the calendar changes would not affect them. However, the extra Day that was added, for a 365 Day Year, totally disrupted the weekly Sabbath cycle, as only on a 364 Day Calendar will the Sabbath be on a Fixed Day of the week every year, like every Saturday. The extra 365th Day made the 7th Day rotate to a different day of the week beginning on the last day of the year.
The Enoch Calendar is determined by the Sun and the Stars, giving us a year of exactly 364 days that have exactly 24 hours in each day. The Julian and Gregorian Calendars are determined by the Stars only (the zodiac constellations that are ruled by planets/gods), giving a year of 365 days that have 23 hours, 56 minutes and about 5 seconds per day:
Enoch 74:12 And the SUN AND THE STARS bring in all the years EXACTLY, so that THEY DO NOT ADVANCE OR DELAY THEIR POSITION BY A SINGLE DAY unto eternity; but COMPLETE THE YEARS WITH PERFECT JUSTICE IN 364 DAYS.
Jubilees 2:9-10 And God appointed the Sun to be a Great Sign on the earth for Days, and for Sabbaths and for Months and for Feasts and for Years and for Sabbaths of Years and for Jubilees and for All Seasons of the Years.
The Julian Calendar reduced each hour of the day by 9.86 Seconds so that the hour has about 59 minutes and 50 Seconds, and the change was so subtle that the Hebrew people were unaware that this minor change could affect anything, let alone their Sabbath Day. The “9.86 Seconds Per Hour” equates to almost 4 minutes per day (3.9452 minutes per day or 236.7 seconds per day), that is taken out of each of the 364 days to create the 365th day .The “365th Created Day,” is inserted into the calendar each year next to the Last Day of year, The same procedure is followed again to create a Leap Day every fourth year, where additional minutes are taken out of each of the original 364 days to create the 366th day, which is inserted into the Gregorian calendar at the end of the 50th week every Fourth Year; (i.e. 2/29/2008, 2/29/2012, 2/29/2016, 2/29/2020, etc.).
The following is the formula that governments use to make a Sidereal Day or an extra day, and it basically just takes out minutes from the original 364 days to create another day:
1) 364 days X 1440 min. per day = 524,160 min. per 364 day year
2) 524,160 / 365 = 1436.05479… min. per day in a 365 day year
3) 1440 – 1436.05479… = 3.9452… minutes taken out of each of the 364 days OR 9.86 seconds taken out of each hour: (3.9452 min. X 60 sec. = 236.7123… sec. per day / 24 hours = 9.86 seconds taken out of each hour)
4) 1436.05479… min. per day / 60 min. = 23.934246575… hours in each of the 365 days
5) .934246575 X 60 = 56.054794520… minutes & seconds
6) TOTAL: 23 hours, 56 minutes, and .05… seconds in each of the Gregorian 365 Days, as compared to Exactly 24 Hours in each of Enoch’s 364 Days.
So you can see that the Extra Day (365th ) does not exist, but the Minutes do exist, and the Enoch Calendar leaves the minutes where they belong for a 364 day year that has exactly 24 hours in each day. The Gregorian Calendar adds extra days by reducing minutes, and therefore it throws off the Sabbath Day and throws off the Feast Days, and places them on an “Abominable Day,” just like the Lunar Calendar does:
Jubilees 6:37 For this reason the years will come upon them when they will disturb (the order), and make an Abominable (Day) the day of testimony, and an unclean day a feast day, and they will confound all the days, the holy with the unclean, and the unclean day with the holy; for they will go wrong as to the Months and Sabbaths and Feasts and Jubilees. 38 For this reason I command and testify to thee that thou mayst testify to them; for after thy death thy children will disturb (them), so that they will not make the year three hundred and sixty−four days only, and for this reason they will go wrong as to the New Months and Seasons and Sabbaths and Festivals, and they will eat all kinds of blood with all kinds of flesh.
The following is a 5-Year Example showing that a Saturday Sabbath is not possible in every year. The Gregorian Calendar is an illusion and is deceptive in showing the “True 7th Day,” because when the 365th Day and 366th Day is added to the calendar, the Name Order will rotate to different days on the calendar. Although the “Number” for each day Does Not Change its Order (1st Day to 7th Day), the “Name” for each day Does Change its Order (Sunday to Saturday), and the week can begin and end on any day from Sunday to Saturday.
When the 365th Day (Day 0) is inserted into the calendar every year in the 52nd Week, Saturday shifts Back One Day, and when the 366th Day (Day 0) is inserted into the calendar every 4th year in the 52nd Week, Saturday shifts Back Two Days. In other words, Saturday will fall on any day of the week from the 7th Day through the 6th Day of the week.
EXAMPLE OF 7TH DAY SABBATH ON GREGORIAN CALENDAR BELOW:
1st Year – Saturday (S) shifts back 1 Day to the 6th Day of the week;
2nd Year – Saturday (S) shifts back 1 Day to the 5th Day of the week;
3rd Year – Saturday (S) shifts back 1 Day to the 4th Day of the week;
4th Year – Saturday (S) shifts back 1 Day to the 2nd Day of the week;
5th Year – Saturday (S) shifts back 1 Day to the 1st Day of the week.
The 365th and 366th added days (0) are an illusion and do not exist. The following shows what day of the week the Saturday Sabbath fell on during the first five years, or when the 365th Day, , and the 366th Day,, were originally added to the Calendar. The 7 Days of the Week are in “Fixed” and “Permanent” positions Forever, but the “Names” that have been assigned to the 7 Days are “Not” in fixed and permanent positions, because Week 52 was changed to have 8 or 9 days in that week, which caused the name Saturday to shift back every year to a different day of the week in the continuous 7 day count. So, Saturday has become a floating day and it is not the 7th Day Sabbath in every year:” -David D Cohen
