The Calendar of the Bible

The Calendar of the Bible goes through a 19 year cycle. The reason for this is that it contains leap months. The years in which these leap month are in are as follows:

Calendar

 

From here, the 19 year cycle repeats itself. A question I wondered was how can we tell from where we are now, which cycle we are in fact in? A 19 year cycle could have easily become lost over this time. Then I remembered that God will use the said he will use the stars in the sky for signs as well. Then I recall seeing information about Lunar tetrads, and how they have had significant events occur during these time frames. So I went looking…..

The first Tetrad that I want to take a look at occurred as follows: (All these dates still need to be confirmed)

April 13 1949, which corresponds to the Passover according to the Jewish tradition.

On the 20th of July, 1949 – Isreal and Syria sign a treaty to end their 19 month war (I find it interesting the a 19 month war ended which you will see later)

October 7 1949, which corresponds to the Feast of Tabernacles according to the Jewish tradition.
April 2 1950, which corresponds to the Passover according to the Jewish tradition.
September 26 1950, which corresponds to the Feast of Tabernacles according to the Jewish tradition.

The reason I say “which corresponds to”: and not “is” is because of this cycle. We need to know where in the cycle we are if we are to be sure these dates are accurate. Lets take a look at when the next Tetrad began:

April 24 1967, which corresponds to the Passover according to the Jewish tradition.

On the 7th of June 1967, Israel recaptures Jerusalem.

October 18 1967, which corresponds to the Feast of Tabernacles according to the Jewish tradition.
April 13 1968, which corresponds to the Passover according to the Jewish tradition.
October 6th 1968, which corresponds to the Feast of Tabernacles according to the Jewish tradition.

How many Jewish years have passed? Using the dates of April 13, 1949 and April 4 1967 we can work this out to be exactly 19 years! And seeing this reminds me of Genesis 1:14 :

           Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years;

This verse not only says that the Stars were used to calculate time, but that they are for signs. A blood moon seems to me (at least) to be a pretty positive sign.

The next tetrad is as follows:

April 15, 2014, which corresponds to the Passover according to the Jewish tradition.
 April 29 2015, Solar eclipse
October 8 2014, which corresponds to the Feast of Tabernacles according to the Jewish tradition.
March 20 2015  Solar Eclipse 
April 4 2015, which corresponds to the Passover according to the Jewish tradition.
September 13 2015 Solar Eclipse
September 28 2015 – which corresponds to the Feast of Tabernacles according to the Jewish tradition.

So how many years are between this tetrad and the one previous? Using the dates April 4, 1967 and April 29, 2015 we can see that exactly 49 Biblical years have passed. Which would make the 50th year the following year with the April 4th 2015 Blood Moon and the September 28 2015 Blood Moon.

What other prophetic numbers are still to be filled in? The last one is the Great tribulation which I believe is a 7 year period.

What are the months in the Biblical Context? (Leap Years only)

Where are the Feasts?

14th Nisan                                Passover  (Pesach) – Fulfilled
15th Nisan – 21st Nisan        Feast of Unleavened Bread (Chag Matstsah) – Fulfilled
16th Nisan                                Feast of First Fruits (Reishit Katizir) (Same day the Saviour rose) – Fulfilled
9th Sivan                                   Feast of Weeks (Pentecost) – 50 Days from the Day of First Fruits. (Shavout)- Fulfilled

1st Tishrei                                 Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah) – Not Fulfilled
10th Tishrei                              Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) – Not Fulfilled

15th Tishrei – 21st Tishrei    Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot – “Booths”) – Not Fulfilled

So why did we need to know where the 19 year cycle is?  

My belief is that God provides signs in the skies for us.

Daniel 9:27 says:
Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week;
But in the middle of the week
He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,
Even until the consummation, which is determined,
Is poured out on the desolate.”

Daniel 9:27 (My translation of the original text using strongs concordance)
With strength he creates an agreement with many for one period of seven;
And half way through the period of seven
The sacrifice and offering will cease.
Because of the overspreading of the detestable thing which stuns and stupefies,
Complete destruction is determined
And it will be poured out upon those who have been stunned.

What is it which stuns and stupefies according to this text? I believe it is shown here.

The period of seven I believe is a seven year period which is coming. The period of seven is the final week in Daniels prophecy of seventy.
The number of days in a year which scripture refers to is 360 days. 7 x 360 days = 2520 days. There are two periods of 1260 days spoken about in the Bible:

Revelation 11 talks about two witnesses which will appear and be here for 1260 days:

 11 And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.”

Revelation 12 talks about what happens when the Lord brings and end to the thing which stuns and stupefies people.

14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. 

Time = 360 days
Times = 2 x 360 days = 720
Half a time = 360 / 2 = 180
Total = 1260 days.

This second span of 1260 days is also spoken about in Daniel 7:25 (3.5 years) Daniel 12:7 (3.5 years), the exile of the woman in Rev 12:6, Micah 2:12-13 (1260 days), the reign of the Antichrist Rev 13:5 (42 months), the trampling of Jerusalem Rev 11:3 (42 months)

The mid point is where the Abomination of Desolation arrives.

Daniel 12

11 “And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days.

This adds and extra 30 days after the 1260 days brining the total to 1290 days.

The total time therefore is 1260 + 1290 = 2550 days. Where might this 2550 day period be?

(N.B. From this web site times can be calculated. To get the time in Jerusalem one needs to add 2 hours and 21 minutes. The new moon is not visible until it is 24 hours old)

N.B.

From Sept 25 2014 to Sept 17 2021 there are 2550 days exactly.
This is also the case from Sept 14 2015 through to Sept 6 2022.

I have no idea if this is what will occur. It’s just something I found.

In Brisbane Australia @ 9am on Sept 25th 2014 it will be 4:00pm the same day.
