John and Doves,
Actually, the secular name for Tishri 1 is, "Rosh
Hashanah" [Head of the Year].
name that appears in Leviticus 23, where the LORD tells Moshe what to tell the
regarding the feasts of the LORD, Tishri 1 is referred
to as, "Yom Teruah" [Day of Blowing].
Teruah," then, is the correct name for the Feast of
Rapture happens to occur at the inauguration of the spiritual new year, Nisan 1,
then it stands
reason that Jesus Christ, the True King of the Jews and KING OF KINGS would come
Earth on a civil New Year, Yom Teruah, the Feast of
(9 March 2011)
"To BG Ellis:
Rosh Hashanah at Nisan 1st?!"
Dear BG Ellis and Doves
in respect to all
your great summaries, I' like to throw in some thoughts:
scripture do you derive that Nisan should be celebrated as
the Sacred Rosh
Nisan is the 1st month of the jewish calendar.
the 7th month of the jewish calendar.
As far as I understand scripture,
Tishri is the month to start
counting the next year. There is nothing wrong
with that. Simply
because Nisan is the first month, it does not make it the
the new year count starts. Simple as that.
There is no
Sacred or Secular Rosh Hashanah. There is only the Rosh
Hashanah at Tishri
and that's it.
I find it a bit confusing that everybody ties to the
calendar if it comes to tetrads falling on specific feast days,
it comes to justify things that don't line up with the Hillel
calendar, it is said to possibly be 1-2 months off, or 1-2 days
due to naked eye spotting of the moon.
Whoever makes a list of
facts backing up a timeline/daycounts, should
either use the Hillel II
calendar and strictly stick to it or
otherwise not use it at all. A mix is
simply not credible. Anybody
else thinking the same?
