Greetings John and Doves
Using the signs in the heavens for times I put together the calendar God uses. But what was throwing me was why God used new moon dates for the 08, 09, 10 eclipses and also on Sep 20, 2017 so it made me wonder why when the Jews today are using the sighting in of the first sliver of the moon to be the first day of each month. In my search and belief that the Word tells us everything I found 1Sam 20.
1Samuel 20 shows clearly that the two days of the new moon are the first and second days of the month. In Davids time they celebrated both days. Here are the verses:
5And David said unto Jonathan, Behold, tomorrow is the new moon, and I should not fail to sit with the king at meat: but let me go, that I may hide myself in the field unto the third day at even.
25And the king sat upon his seat, as at other times, even upon a seat by the wall: and Jonathan arose, and Abner sat by Saul's side, and David's place was empty.
26Nevertheless Saul spake not any thing that day: for he thought, Something hath befallen him, he is not clean; surely he is not clean.
27And it came to pass on the morrow, which was the second day of the month, that David's place was empty: and Saul said unto Jonathan his son, Wherefore cometh not the son of Jesse to meat, neither yesterday, nor to day?
So I had to correct the calendar I sent in before
This makes the day of passover this year the 16th of April not the 18th.
If the signs in the sky and the Psalms are correct then Jesus will return 2014 midway when He will stand on Mount Zion with the 144,000 I am thinking either Pentecost or the Feast of Trumpets when the church will be raptured the manchild caught up.
Will the two witness's appear just before Passover? According to Jewish tradition there is always an extra plate set for Elijah at Passover.
Will the bride be gone by this summer? Only God knows!
Thank you John!
