Michael Wellman replied with a comment to my article of lunar eclipses with his timelines.
It is always very educational to hear your opinions regarding the link of the heavens above with the feasts and dates in the Jewish calendar.
Thank you Michael,

Your insight of 7177 is very interesting…
The current set of consecutive eclipses marked by seven 177.14 day sequences. When you have 8 eclipses in such a cycle it lasts 42 lunar months or 1240 days, marking 7 periods of 177 days.

Considering 2011 from another angle…
This video by J.R. Church is compelling…
Will Psalm 111 be fulfilled in 2011? http://vimeo.com/18333565
I count 8 times the word “shall” is used in Psalm 110, which indicates future tense.
Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth. Psalm 110:3
Psalm 111 is characterized by the word “hath”, past tense.
He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name. Psalms 111:9
What year is it according to the Bible?
In the May 1999 version of “Israel Today” there is an article titled: The Mystery of the 240 Missing Years. “In the article, David Rohl, an Egyptologist and Archaeologist, found hieroglyphics that provided a synchronization of the Jewish and Egyptian calendars. He asserted that 240 years are missing from modern Jewish reckoning, bringing us at that time to ‘the prophetic year 6000.’”
The present Hebrew year is 5771 + 240 years = 6011
The Gregorian year is of course …….2011
Without trying to confuse the matter any further, the Bible indicates the year should start in Nissan not Tishri. The month in which the Israelites left Egypt was set as the first of the year. This is called Abib, the “month of ears” of grain. It was the spring month of the opening harvest, later called Nisan in Babylon, as it is known to the present day (see Ex. 23:15; 34:18; Deut. 16:1; Esther 3:7).
So based on the Bible, IF there is a correlation between the Psalms and years, I would look for it past April 5th which could also be described as Nisan 1 6011 or 1-1-11.
