Hello John and Doves,I had just finished watching Ken Johnson on Prophecy Watchers when I watched Dr. Barry Awe's video. Dr. Awe refers to the New Wine Festival as Pentecost on his chart. This New Wine Festival may be his next possible 'Rapture date.' We'll see.
(524) RAPTURE JUNE 25th🤯 Proof revealed that our Lord does want His Faithful and Diligent to know the Day😲 - YouTubeKen Johnson has spent much time studying and writing about the Essenes. The Essenes believed that the lunar calendar of the Pharisees was corrupt. And that Noah used the same calendar the Essenes did - both before and after the Flood - a 364-day calendar. Evidence shows that this calendar is consistent with the seven-day cycle from Creation. It is believed that the Essenes wrote the Dead Sea Scrolls. The Temple Scroll is one of these scrolls.The original calendar consisted of twelve months with each month consisting of 30 days. This totals to 360 days. There are four 'tekufahs' or "days of remembrance" set aside from this 360 day period - which bring the total of days to 364. These tekufahs are the equinox/solstice that begin each season.The Book of Jubilees notes that Noah was commanded to set aside the first day of each season as a "day of remembrance". God said, "And on the new moon of the first month, and on the new moon of the fourth month, and on the new moon of the seventh month, and on the new moon of the tenth month are the days of remembrance, and the days of the seasons in the four divisions of the years. These are written and ordained as a testimony forever." Ancient Book of Jubilees 6:22-23Spring Equinox - the first tekufah - one dayThe 3 spring months - 90 days.Summer Solstice - the second tekufah - one dayThe 3 summer months - 90 daysFall Equinox - the third tekufah - one dayThe 3 fall months - 90 days.Winter Equinox - the fourth tekufah - one dayThe 3 winter months - 90 days.Also, we know that God's plan was for 7,000 years. Adam to Abraham was 2,000 years. Abraham to Jesus was 2,000 years. Jesus to the end of the Tribulation Period is 2,000 years. Then the 1,000 years of peace. That's 7,000 years.Ken Johnson also said that Jesus was crucified in the year 32 AD - Passover - so 3.5 years before that is the fall Feast Days of 28 AD when He started His ministry. So IF the last 2,000 year count started with Jesus' ministry.....28 AD - 2028 AD = 2,000 years. Minus 7 years = 2021. Also, for an 80 year generation: 1948 plus 80 = 2028. 2028 minus 7 years = 2021. Think I got this math right.The Temple Scroll gives us more information about the Biblical festival calendar. There are two further 'first produce" festivals or Bikkurim festivals - the New Wine Festival and the New Oil Festival.The Temple Scroll notes three bikkurim festivals - wheat, wine, and oil. Wheat was harvested in the spring, grapes in the summer and olives in the late summer or early autumn. All are a 50 day count apart.According to the Essenes, the New Wheat (Feast of Weeks or Sukkot) Festival took place fifty days after the Shabbat following Passover - this is how Pentecost is counted today. Fifty days after this is the New Wine Festival. And fifty days after this is the New Oil Festival.The Wheat Festival is on 15 Sivan.The New Wine Festival is on 3 Av. Fifty days after the New Wheat is the New Wine festival.The New Oil Festival is on 22 Elul.For the New Wine Festival, the Temple Scroll tells us this festival is on the 3rd day of the 5th month (Av.) I came across several websites that listed this New Wine Festival as Pentecost. This would help explain why Peter said the men are not drunk because the wine is new. Grapes are not harvested in late May/early June.The Essenes made the date for the New Wine Festival easy: 3 Av. But where do we start the new year? We've got calendars that are a month off!
Ken Johnson believes 1 Nisan was on March 17 Spring Day of Remembrance - the day after the spring tekufah. March 30 is Passover....the last/seventh day of Unleavened Bread is April 6. The summer tekufah is June 15 and 1 Tammuz or June 16 is the Summer Day of Remembrance. So the New Wine festival will be on July 18 - 3 Av.
Jesus' first miracle was at the marriage in Cana where he turned the water into wine: "And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there." John 2:1Note it specifically says "the third day"...The New Wine Festival is on the third day.Also, Jesus said "I will not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's Kingdom." Matthew 26:29Is this a reference to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb that occurs after the Rapture? Is 'new' a hint as to the timing of this?There have been many letters to Doves over the years about a Pentecost Rapture - the issues have been how do you 'count to' Pentecost. And what year.Pentecost could not be in late spring - like May/June; for the grapes to be harvested for wine, the timing must be late June/July/August.New wine is from newly harvested grapes. The wine has not had time to ferment. Peter, during 'Pentecost', said that the men were not drunk as the wine was new - not fermented. The grapes were recently harvested. This first Pentecost must have been in summer - late June at the earliest.The Old Testament prophet Micah wrote about going out into the vineyard for summer fruit, but the grapes had been harvested. He wrote about "the godly man has vanished from the earth; there is no one upright among men." Micah 7:1 This is a reference to the Rapture and to the timing of the Rapture - grape harvest.The Essenes seem to have the answer for 'finding' Pentecost. They set it as the 3rd day of the fifth month, Av.The 3rd day of Av is in the "Nine Days" from 1 Av to 9 Av - where the Jews mourn the destruction of the Temples.This year on the chabad calendar, the Ninth of Av - the fast of Tisha B'av 2021 begins at sundown July 17 and ends sundown July 18. This actually is Ken Johnsons' Essenes calendar date for the New Wine Festival. So this date will be acknowledged one way or the other.Tisha B'av is "the saddest day on the Jewish calendar, on which we fast, deprive ourselves and pray. It is the culmination of the Three Weeks, a period of time during which we mark the destruction of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem."
The 9th of Av - Tisha B'Av - Tisha B'Av and the 3 Weeks
The Three Weeks begin with the 17th of Tammuz - a fast day marking the breach of the walls of Jerusalem by the Romans in 69AD. And climaxes with the Ninth of Av fast. The 17th of Tammuz begins sunset June 26 and ends sunset June 27 (Sunday).So we will be in the Three Weeks when John posts this letter.IF the Rapture occurs on that day - the Essenes' 3 Av or chabad 9 Av, it will be a sad day indeed - fulfilling Micah's prophecy "Woe is me! For I am like one gathering summer fruit at the gleaning of the vineyard; there is not cluster to eat, no early fig that I crave. the godly man has vanished from the earth; there is no one upright among men. they all lie in wait for blood..." Micah 7:1,2 It will be a horrible time to be living on planet Earth.Ken Johnson wrote in his book (link below): "The Festival of New Wine teaches about our dedication to God, the marriage supper of the Lamb, the Jewish wedding ceremony, the Rapture of the church, and the new body of Christ being made of what were Jews and Gentiles."I believe that the Festival of New Wine is Pentecost. Dr. Barry Awe also shows this on his timeline in his video (link above).I believe that we are in a High Watch time - keep looking up!Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!Maranatha!ChanceSome of the above information is from Ken Johnson's youtube video:
