Yahushua Melchizedek Calendar

Exploring The Authority Of Yahushua Messiah’s Biblical Calendar, In His High Priesthood Order Of Melchizedek (And Its Implications For Identifying The Appointed Times In 2014) by Rob@inthatday.net

 This paper presents a synopsis of principles from my research and study over many years concerning the identification of the true biblical calendar and which I trust will help others in their studies and understanding of this subject and subsequently to identify the annual biblical calendar in the emunah firm belief of Yahushua Messiah’s demonstration.

 

The major statement of this paper is that, given the full biblical and historical evidence now available to us it is Yahushua Messiah   ALONE who only has the biblical authority over the biblical worship calendar today, through His post-resurrection office as High Priest of the Melchizdek order.   No-one else has any biblical authority to set or proclaim the biblical calendar of YHVH, regardless of what religious orthodoxies they are. His behavioural example is thus highly significant.

 

The implications of understanding exactly who carries the true Divine authority over the biblical calendar today (as outlined by Moses in Leviticus 23) are both radical and profound to any who are sincerely concerned and called to prepare for the redemption and return of YHVH’s trustworthy remnant elect in the last days.

Below is the conversation responded  from Rob @ inthatday.net:
Hi Yahn El,
1. This is the difficulty – that the biblical Sabbath does not line up neatly with the Gregorian (Roman) Saturday – we find that HillelII changed the Rabbinic calendar in the early 300 CE it is not recorded what he did because his changes were kept secret and no one else worked with him on this task – but that he changed the calendar is acknowledged by Judaism and He did fix it  to make the Judaism calendar work in the roman exile – but I am now seeing is that he single handily must have been the one to change the Sabbath in the Rabbinic calendar to re-align with the Roman Saturday to
1) reduce persecution of the rabbinic Jews in the roman empire and
2) because of it assisting rabbinic Jewish to participate in the economy of the roman empire. 
Soon thereafter we see Emperor Constantine (365 CE) changing the Christian “Sabbath” to occur on the Roman Sunday.
We find that YHVH declared to Moses that he would “hide his face” from Israel when it would be in the exile – by this I understand he would hide His festivals and calendar because Israel had corrupted them.  Moses and the prophets confirmed this because they foretold that when these matters are brought to the last generation of redeemed Israel – the causes of the Baruch/ ble_sings and the curse (and to keep the Torah Sabbath and true appointed times is truly a Berakah /ble_sings – but when we cannot see them because we are in exile; it is a curse), then the remnant would mourn for YHVH to bring us home to be able to keep his festivals – and Zephaniah prophesied that it is those who mourn for YHVH’s worship times that YHVH will bring back to His covenant land in the last days
(see Zeph 3: 18  I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly, who are of thee, to whom the reproach of it was a burden.)
So when we find the Sabbath does not fit our ‘Egypt” calendar of the Saturday then we have a difficulty because we have to work on His days – so we will cry out for YHVH to send His Redeemer to set us free from Egypt and bring us home once again – it becomes a heart cry of true repentance for those who are truly seeking His face and His prophetic word and the end of His judgements of Redeemed Israel.  SO I am convinced that He (YHVH) has hidden his calendar and is now revealing this so that we can see that we are in “the pig sty” – in Egypt/ in Babylon and only He can break us out of that Bozrah prison house and bring us home – so the revealing of the biblical Sabbath not fitting the Gregorian week as we have been told by religion for nearly 2000 years is in fact proving YHVH’s prophetic declarations to the last generation.  HalleluYah!
2. . According to my astronomical simulation software (Starry Night Pro) The equinox occurred in 30CE at 12.48 am (Jerusalem time) on 23rd March (Julian calendar not Gregorian) marking Day 1 Month 1. Note from the astronomic simulation that the moon was 0.12 days old and that would mean the Rabbis would have marked their Day 1 month 1 beginning on the evening of the 24th – this gives one day difference between the 14 day  count to Passover from the equinox calendar as opposed to the 14 day count to Passover from the conjunctive moon calendar (Rabbinic).

3. What is confusing you I think is thinking the Gregorian calendar is stable and how the days work out, when the Roman calendar was at that time a Julian formula  and not the Gregorian formula that we have today – so there is a change in  the Roman days that would have been on the Roman calendar in those days. However if you discard the Roman calendar which is an added confusion and do a simple count of days to day 14 you will find that Yahushua’s crucifixion fell on the 4th day of the week given a 14 day count from the conjunctive moon day declaration as the counting of days on the equinox calendar works out the same to Passover/unleavened bread every year if one is working from the equinox, as per my diagram in the last article.

4.  Your second question is that the website you refer to is using the equilux as marking day 1 of month 1 and not the equinox. The equilux is something quite different and is not accurately measurable because it is dependant on the latitude position. They use this because of their interpretation of Enoch – but as I discussed in my article this is inaccurate because Enoch was a pre-flood calendar and the equator at the time of pre-flood was in proximity of the covenant land whereas to day it is moved because the earth has been moved some 23 degrees on its axis. You need to understand the physics of the difference between the equinox and the equilux.
The website you refer to simply reads that in Enoch he said the equal day equal night was occurring at beginning of the year when the sun completed its circuit (the equinox).  The astronomical reality is that the only place where the equinox and the equilux coincide is when one is at the equator – this is not the case for the covenant land today proving that the earth has been tilted on its axis because of the flood because at Jerusalem today the equilux occurs some 4 days earlier than the equinox. I have discussed this in my last article.  However the people who simply interpret the Enoch calendar in that way will not acknowledge that the Enoch calendar is a preflood calendar where the earth was not in the same orbit (they argue that there is only 364 days (when in creation reality there is 365.25 days) in the year today – by theological arguing that the Day of Atonement is not a day to be included in the calendar – it is nonsensical – but they have to do something theological like that because the tilt of the earth was not in the same position pre-flood as it is today and the earth’s orbit around the sun takes 365.25 days today (as opposed to 364 days pre-flood).
5. I do not keep the Enoch calendar that has been promoted in the Internet , but Yahushua’s calendar based which we can understand from the gospels account, based on the precepts of Enoch and the Zadok’s, but recognising the astronomical changes that have occurred.
6. Dear YahnEl,
Some advocate the equilux (the estimated day of equal day and equal night hours) as it occurs in Jerusalem as constituting Day 1 of the biblical calendar.
“Equilux Or Equinox? How Creation’s Testimony Debunks The Jerusalem Equilux As The Beginning Of The Biblical Year.” This article explores why they make such an assertion and how a calendar anchored on the equilux does not concur with the Apostolic testimonial record of the historical timing of the events surrounding Yahushua Messiah’s crucifixion, whereas a biblical calendar based on the equinox   as Day 1 of the biblical calendar,   specifically and uniquely does so.

7. With The Exiled Zadok’s Historical Formula On The Identification Of The Biblical Sabbath Day Now Revealed, How Is It That Judaism’s Sabbath Occurs Neatly On The Gregorian Saturday? If interested, the article may be downloaded from clicking here: Biblical Sabbath Day Now Revealed
In This Article:
  • The Exiled Zadok testimony of the formula for identifying the biblical Sabbath is as follows:
  • The Rabbinical Calendar in The Talmudic and Post Talmudic Years:
  • No Historical Trace Record Exists Of The Actual Changes Hillel II Made To The Rabbinical Calendar (??)
  • But Is There Circumstantial Evidence?
  • Why Did The Rabbinic Pharisees Focus on Procuring A Charge Of Blasphemy Against Yahushua, Above Any Other Interpreted Breach Of The Law?
  • When The Redeemed “Messianics” Left Judea in 68CE , Then The Rabbinics Would Have Increased Their Hegemony Over Remaining Judeans
  • The Effect of Cumulative Error in the Rabbinical Calendar’s Measurement of Time
  • So What Of The “Hidden” Work That Hillel II Actually Carried Out On Judaism’s Religious Calendar?
Tikvah that this helps

  1. Stephen Kraner says:

    I believe that YHWH’ Mo’edim, Feasts, pre-existed (1) the Exodus; (2) the creation and fall of Adam and Eve; and, (3) the fall of Satan.
    Did YHWH’s Mo’edim (feasts) (sacred appointments) have the titles of Passover, Unleavened Bread and Tabernacles PRIOR TO the Exodus?
    As you said, “Nope”. But, the Divine Appointments (for at least the three pilgrim feasts, where they traveled to assemble together) PRE-EXISTED NOT ONLY THE EXODUS, BUT ALSO THE FALL OF SATAN.
    Exodus 23:14-17: “Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year. Thou shalt keep the FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD: thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty: and the FEAST OF HARVEST, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field: and the FEAST OF INGATHERING, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field. Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before YHWH thy Elohim.”
    Exodus 12:40-41: “Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, EVEN THE SELFSAME DAY it came to pass, that all the hosts of the Lord went out from the land of Egypt.”
    The “selfsame day” as what? What event was so significant, 430 years prior to the Exodus, that Israel had preserved the knowledge of the date and knew of a certitude that it was the SELFSAME DAY?
    Galatians 3:17: “And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of Elohim in Messiah, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.”
    THE NEW COVENANT PROMISE OF MESSIAH, THE SEED, WAS MADE ON THE SAME DATE AS THE EXODUS, 430 YEARS LATER!!!
    YHWH met with Abraham at the Oaks of Mamre, at Passover. Abraham made unleavened bread, washed the feet of the YHWH and killed the fatted calf, all on the date of Passover. The two angels continued to Sodom to meet Lot. Whereupon, Lot also made unleavened bread! HERE IS EVIDENCE THAT THE FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD PRE-EXISTED THE EXODUS. BECAUSE BOTH ABRAHAM AND LOT MADE UNLEAVENED BREAD (without being told), INDICATES THAT IT WAS ALREADY THEIR CUSTOM.
    In the Hebrew, the FEAST of INGATHERING is written as though the feast already existed! Take note of the phrase, “which IS in the end of the year.” This is the pre-Exodus name for the Feast of Tabernacles. The command (judgment) was given at Sinai, seven weeks after the Exodus. Israel is just entered her first year in the wilderness. There has not yet been a “seventh month” where they could gather their harvest. Yet, the text speaks of the feast of INGATHERING as already a practice.
    Take note of the apparently regular times for “pilgrim travel for assembly” before YHWH.
    Job 1:6-7; Job 2:1-2: “Again there was a day when the sons of Elohim came to present themselves before YHWH, and Satan came also among them to present himself before YHWH. And YHWH said unto Satan, From whence comest thou? And Satan answered YHWH, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.”
    “1 Now there was a day when the sons of Elohim came to present themselves before YHWH, and Satan came also among them. And YHWH said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered YHWH, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.”
    The words, “From whence comedy thou?”, implies that the other. “Sons of Elohim” had also traveled to be at the place of assembly. Satan responds that he has come from planet earth. YHWH immediately contests Satan’s right to claim that he (Satan) was representing planet earth.
    Job describes the “pilgrim” assembly of the equivalent of Adam to meet before YHWH at YHWH’ Mo’edim, YHWH’s Feasts.
    At the time of his fall, Lucifer boasts that it is his intent to rule THE ALREADY EXISTING “mount of the Mo’edim”.
    Isaiah 14:12-13: “How art thou fallen from heaven,O Lucifer, son of the morning!how art thou cut down to the ground,which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart,I will ascend into heaven,I will exalt my throne above the stars of Elohim: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation [Hebrew: “har mo’ed”],in the sides of the north:”
    Adam sinned at the date of Passover. The only begotten Son of YHWH (YHWH’s Word) immediately interposed Himself as the Father’s Lamb, slain from the foundation of the world. He immediately became “Messiah our (humanity’s) Passover.”

  2. I have a question, how come the septuagent Tanakh, uses the word for month, “new moon” if new moon’s were introduced by the Pharisees compromising with the selucid king after 167bce, when the septuagent was written in the 2-3 century bce? thanks.

    • No1. There are only two known families of Hebrew Scripture, those from Yahuwdah and those brought back from Babylon with the rabbis. The MT is from the Babylonian family and it dates to 1000CE . The DSS are of the Yahuwdah family and date between 200BCE and 70CE.
      The Septuagint is nothing more than a Greek translation of the Yahuwdah family of Hebrew Scriptures from 200BCE to 200CE. The Samarian Pentateuch is an Aramaic translation, but of what we do not know for sure. Since the oldest extant copy dates to the 6th century CE, it could have translated from Hebrew, Greek, or Latin into Aramaic, but was probably from the Targums, a rabbinical paraphrase of the Babylonian family of Hebrew Scriptures in Aramaic circa 100BCE to 500CE.
      The Latin Vulgate dates to just prior to 400 CE. It is the result of blending conflicting Old Latin texts and translating the Septuagint.
      The oldest extant witnesses to the text of the Hebrew Scriptures are the Dead Sea Scrolls. Nothing else even comes close.

      No2. Please refer to this article: http://man-child.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Chodesh-means-month-NOT-moon.pdf
