HOW THE ANCIENT ROSETTA CALENDAR REVEALS
WHAT ‘TYPE OF YEAR’ MESSIAH YESHUA
WILL RETURN TO ISRAEL
There is a wonderful interactive calendar online that reveals the date on three different calendars at one time. First, the Gregorian calendar is viewed, followed by the Julian calendar and ending with the Hebrew calendar. This particular calendar offers a ‘calendar conversion service.’ All three of these calendars appear on a single page and interact and convert with one another. When a date is entered on any one calendar, the other two immediately convert to show that same date on their respective calendars by always returning to the top of the page to show the Gregorian calendar first. The most wonderful aspect of this calendar is that it allows the ability to find a particular date back into antiquity for B.C years. The name of the calendar is ‘Rosetta Calendar.’ It has been named for the ancient Rosetta Stone found in Egypt which was an ancient tablet that allowed scholars to finally decipher hieroglyphics because it contains the same message written in hieroglyphics, demotic and Greek, just as the Rosetta Calendar displays the same date in three multiple calendar systems.
The calendar is very simple to use by following a couple of rules: The A.D. or B.C. box must be checked for the year wanted. When entering any date, the page always reverts to the Gregorian calendar first, requiring one to scroll down to find the calendar wanted. Also…remember that the Jews have deleted years from their calendar in order to detract from the fulfillment of Daniel’s ’70 weeks’ prophecy, the birth of Christ, the dates of His ministry and Crucifixion.

There are two calendars at work in the Bible. Genesis 1 thru Exodus 11 is dated on the Fall Hebrew Civil calendar that begins on Tishri 1, (September/October) the month of Creation. Israel’s secular Civil society has been using the Fall Civil calendar from the beginning for their dating. Creation in Genesis 1 opened on the Fall Civil calendar, in the first month of Tishri, according to the rabbis, and strongly inferred by Scripture. We know this for sure because there was “a change” to a new calendar year in Exodus 12. The only events to be counted from Tishri 1 on the Civil calendar according to Leviticus 25, are Israel’s Sabbatical and Jubilee cycles.
Exodus 12 thru to the end of Revelation is dated on the Spring Hebrew Sacred calendar that begins the Lord’s New Year on Nisan 1 (March/April). From Exodus 12, the Creator has been counting His New Years from Spring to Spring.
Any one Hebrew year covers the parts of two Julian/Gregorian years, as those two calendars both open their New Year on January 1.
The Civil and Sacred calendars run exactly 6 months apart. For example:
(From Exodus 12 Forward): Sacred Year
Nisan 1 Iyar Sivan Tammuz Av Elul Tishri 1 Heshvan Kislev Tebeth Shebat Adar 29
(From Genesis 1 thru Exodus 11): Civil Year
Tishri 1 Heshvan Kislev Tebeth Shebat Adar
Nisan Iyar Sivan Tammuz Av Elul 29
WHAT IS THE ‘YEAR OF PERFECT ORDER?'
A change came to Israel’s calendar from the Lord in Exodus 12, which is one of the most important texts of Holy Scripture. It is there that the Lord began a new calendar for the Bible and for the nation of Israel - the Sacred Calendar. This calendar runs from Spring to Spring – beginning on Nisan 1, at the New Moon – Rosh Chodesh - in the first month, and ending in the twelfth month on Adar 29. All dating in the Bible from Exodus 12 thru Revelation is based on the Hebrew Sacred calendar year.
“And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt saying, This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house.” Exodus 12:1-3.
It is here in this text that the Creator began to count His “head of the year” – Rosh Hashanah - on Nisan 1, from Spring to Spring, in the season of “the latter rain,” “at the time of life” at the ‘light’ time of the year in the season of resurrection at “the set time” when the Earth’s herbaceous vegetation rises up as “new shoots;” the season when Jesus Christ, ‘the Light of the World’ arose in resurrection as “the first of the firstfruits of them that slept” – 1 Cor 13:2 - of the Barley which represents the Church, and as the Jewish “new shoot out of Jesse” - the Messiah of Israel.
The last year of perfect order opened on Thursday, March 26,, 2009, Nisan 1, Jewish year 5769. The next year of perfect order will open 11 years later - on Thursday, March 26, 2020, Nisan 1, Jewish year 5780. The next such years after that will open on Nisan 1, 2023, followed by Nisan 1, 2026/2027.
In the Bible, Spring is the season of “the latter rain.” Hosea 6:3 in the NASV promises the nation of Israel: “…His going forth is as certain as the dawn; And He will come to us like the rain, Like the spring rain watering the earth. ” Spring is also the season that “the Bridegroom” entreats His Bride (both Israel and His New Testament Bride) … “For, behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing [of birds] has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. The fig tree puts forth and ripens her green figs, and the vines are in blossom and give forth their fragrance. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.” SOS 2:11-13 Amplified Bible
Spring - the season when God “comes to visit” – both the righteous and the wicked! Ex 3:16; Ex 4:31; Is 10:3; Is 29:6; Jer 8:11-13; Micah 7:4; James 5:7
The Stone Edition of ‘The Chumash’ contains the 5 books of the Torah, the Haftaros [a portion of the Prophets that is chanted or read in the synagogue on the sabbath and holy days] and Five Megillos [Esther, Song of Songs, Ruth, Lamentations and Ecclesiastes] with a commentary anthologized from the Rabbinic writings. On page 351, without knowing for sure in what year Exodus 12 took place, the Rabbinic commentary says this about verse 3: “In the tenth day of this month”…Quote: “Because this happened on the tenth day of Nissan, which was the Sabbath that year, the Sabbath before Passover is called Shabbos HaGadol (the Great Sabbath), in commemoration of that miracle.” (Kol Bo:Shibbolei HalLekket).” End of Quote
Nisan 10 only falls on Sabbath in a year of perfect order. Ten days earlier in Exodus 12, Nisan 1 had opened on a Thursday, before the Lord’s announcement to Moses in verses 1-2. Of course the Lord officially opened His Sacred Calendar in a year of perfect order because He is the God of perfect order and as the Creator, He has set every aspect of His Creation ‘in perfect order.’ Perfect order is the Lord’s very essence. In Scripture for example, the speech and the steps of the righteous are to be ordered of the Lord. The house of the righteous is to be set in order. The implements of the Temple are all arranged in order, as well as the Priesthood itself in its divisions and the Levites in their 24 courses. Even the Sun, Moon and the stars are set to operate in their individual perfect order. Literally everything created by Jesus the Creator was set in order from the beginning. ‘Perfect order’ always wins against the mocker’s argument for ‘randomness.’ Disorder only comes from Satan and always brings chaos and ruin. Job 10:22 says this about Hades in the center of the Earth: “A land of darkness, as darkness itself; and of the shadow of death, without any order, and where the light is as darkness.” The Creator has left the imprint of His divine order upon everything He has created, a fact which the atheist hates to accept and the scoffer cannot deny! The Lord even “ordered” the disorder of Hell and the Lake of Fire.
Exodus 12 is a prophetic blueprint for the type of year … (1) when the Children of Israel were set free from “the service, wherein they made them serve, with rigour” – Ex 1:1 - at Passover - the Festival of Freedom! (2) for the birth “of the Dayspring who hath visited us from on high” - Luke 1:78, (3) for the arrival of the ministry of “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” - John 1:29; (4) for the week and year of His death, burial and resurrection as “the King of the Jews” and “God’s only begotten Son” which made it possible for a Holy God to reconcile sinful men to Himself – Matt 27:37; John 3:16; (5) when this occurred after Jesus’ promise: “But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me”
(6) when the return of “the Son of Man” will take place for the redeemed of national Israel and the Gentiles at the end of the Tribulation - Matt 24:30, and finally… (7) when the righteous remnant of Israel at the end of the Tribulation shall finally be eternally free… “ And it shall come to pass in the day that the LORD shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve” - Is 14:3…ALL in a year of perfect order.
Exodus 12 reveals the most important principle of all – in a year of perfect order – the ONLY way that the Father reconciles wicked mankind to Himself – by redemption through the shed blood of His Son, Jesus.
It is at the official opening of the Sacred calendar in a year of perfect order that the Lord laid down His eternal, irrevocable, fundamental truth …”when I see the blood, I will pass over you”- Exodus 12:13. The Lord officially established this everlasting ordinance of Passover with national Israel at the beginning of the Sacred calendar in a year of perfect order, 3 months before He gave Moses the Law of the Mosaic Covenant when He met with him and Israel on Mt. Sinai. (But the Lord instructed the righteous in His Law “without shedding of blood is no remission” Heb 9:22, in the beginning - in the Garden of Eden, with Adam and Eve.)
How important the ‘year of perfect of order’ must be to the Lord!
We are able to find out that according to the Bible, the year of perfect order is essential to the Lord in fulfilling His plan at first for the physical deliverance of His people Israel set free from the bondage of Egypt, the offer of spiritual deliverance for men to be set free from their sins because of the Cross, and at last – for the physical deliverance of the redeemed remnant out of Israel and the Gentiles, set free from their enemies all around at the end of the Tribulation.
[In the Season of Spring - when God comes to visit: “Arise, My love, My fair one - come away.”]
Another wonderful feature of the Rosetta calendar is that any year of perfect order may be found - whether in B.C. or in A.D. years. To find out if a particular year is a ‘year of order’ - enter any date in April with the year, and check either B.C. or A.D. on either the Gregorian or Julian calendar, then scroll down to the Hebrew calendar and find the Jewish month of Nisan in the box to the right. If 1 Nisan falls on Thursday, that opens a year of perfect order. In the years that Nisan 1 falls in the month of March, like 2013, make the adjustment by putting a near date in March on the Julian or Gregorian calendars that brings up the whole month of Nisan on the Hebrew calendar.
On the Jewish calendar there are certain years when Nisan 1 only and always falls on Thursday . These types of years are a year of perfect order because when this occurs, all the Mosaic Feast days – which are ‘seasons’ (Heb: mow’ed ) ‘set times’ and ‘appointed times’ as in Gen 1:14, fall on their legally prescribed day as commanded by the Lord in Leviticus 23 and Exodus 12:1-6.
Only in a ‘year of perfect order’…
Nisan 1 falls on Thursday, and is the opening day of the Sacred Year calendar - Ex 12:1-2. It is the day that Moses erected the Tabernacle in Exodus 40:2. Nisan 1 always begins the yearly cycle of the cleansing of the altar, the Temple implements and the cleansing and consecration of the of the priesthood in their divisions and the 24 courses of the Levites - for seven days- thru Nisan 7, which allows them to be fit for ministry “on the eighth day” – Nisan 8. Ex 40; 2 Chron 29:3,17-19; Ezk 43:19-27.
Nisan 10 falls on Sabbath, and is called the Tzav Haggadol / Shabbos HaGadol by the rabbis, which means “The Great Sabbath” as it is always the Sabbath that just precedes Passover, the day on which the Lord instructed Moses that Israel “must take a lamb for a house…for four days” in Exodus 12:3. That is the reason Yeshua Messiah, the Lamb of God, rode into Jerusalem on the “donkey’s colt” not on Sunday, but on the Sabbath, Palm Sabbath - at the beginning of ‘the Passion Week,’ in John 12. (“Six days before the Passover” in John 12:1, according to the Jews, always begins on Thursday - Nisan 15, and counting backwards by 6 days, falls on Sabbath, Nisan 10.) Each family in Israel was to take Yeshua, the Lamb of God for a house - Ex 12:3-5 - in order to examine Him for any “flaws” or “blemishes” in His representation to them of the Mosaic Law according to Old Testament Scriptures before He shed His blood that would atone once-and-for-all for their sins - Matthew 21-25. Israel was to repent and turn from her sins and accept Him as her Messiah Lord and Savior and become born again, which would have allowed for the Holy Spirit to spiritually apply that precious “blood of the covenant” - Ex 24:8; Heb 10:29 - to her hearts. Of course she refused as a nation. That national refusal, this time, was the gravest of errors as the absence of that application of “the blood of atonement” has prevented Yeshua the Death Angel, from being able to “pass over her” all these years as a nation – until… after she suffers the severest of retribution poured out upon her which will only then allow a third of Israel - Zech 13:8-9 – to come to repentance, reconciliation, restoration and rest - at the end of the age - 1,990 years later. Whatever the date of the Sabbath immediately preceding Passover, in a nonyear of ‘order,’ it is always called ‘the Shabbos HaGadol / ‘the Great Sabbath’ - the ‘Tzav Haggadol.’
Nisan 14 falls on Wednesday, the day of the Crucifixion, “the fourth day of the week” - Gen 1:14-19 - as commanded by the Lord in Exodus 12:6. It is the
day of the week that the SUN, a Hebrew male noun, which is a symbol of ‘The SON,’ was hung in the sky between Heaven and Earth “on the fourth day” as “the Greater Light” who rules over the day, in Gen 1:14-19. The Moon, a Hebrew feminine noun, who rules over the night was also hung as ‘a lesser light’ but has no light in herself and only reflects the Greater Light by waxing and waning in that ‘reflection.’ (The Moon is a symbol of the nation of Israel and the N.T. Church.)
Nisan 15 falls on Thursday, the opening of the seven days of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. The Bible says on whatever day Nisan 15 falls (in any year), “ye shall do no servile work” which infers a Sabbath - Lev 23:7. This is the first of 7 ‘high days’ or ‘high sabbaths’ during the Mosaic feast cycle, according to the Bible – John 19:31, and Judaism. (The Jews ignore the name “Feast of Unleavened Bread” as they have been ‘blinded’ by the Lord for now to their own “Bread from Heaven that came down unto them.” They refer to Nisan 14 thru Nisan 21 as “Passover” and then add on an extra day at the end, Nisan 22, making Passover 9 days long.)
Nisan 17 falls on Sabbath, the DAY OF REST as in Genesis 2:2-3. Feast of Firstfruits always falls on “the morrow after the sabbath” [after the seventh day Sabbath] on Sunday, “the Lord’s day” – Rev 1:10, no matter in what year, according to God’s instructions in Lev 23:10-11. Only in a year of order is that Sunday always Nisan 18. Sunday, the Feast of Firstfruits is always Resurrection Day, no matter on what date it falls.
Nisan 21 falls on Wednesday and is the closing day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. It is ‘high sabbath’ #2 -“ye shall do no servile work” no matter on what day it falls - Lev 23:8.
Iyar 27 falls on Thursday, which is Ascension Day, 40 days after Firstfruits - Acts 1:3.
Sivan 8 falls on Sunday, the Feast of Harvest/Pentecost, 50 days after Firstfruits, “on the morrow after the seventh sabbath” – on Sunday - Lev 23:15-16. It is ‘high sabbath’ #3, “ye shall do no servile work” - Lev 23:21. In all other years, the ‘50th’ day – Pentecost – which always is to fall on Sunday, between Sivan 10 thru 13, is always on the “morrow after the (7th day) sabbath” no matter the year, according to Lev 23:15-16.
Tammuz 17 falls on Thursday, the day Moses first descended from Mt Sinai and broke the Two Tablets of the Law when He viewed Israel worshipping the molten calf - Ex 32. Because of the advocacy and intercession of Moses, the rabbis teach and the Bible says that the Lord laid aside the ultimate punishment for the sin of the calf “until the end of days” as He told Moses: “…nevertheless, when I visit I will visit their sin upon them” - Ex 32:34, (in the form of “the travail of the woman” and “the terrible and dreadful Day of the Lord”). “I will come up into the midst of you in a moment, and consume you” - Ex 33:5. When the people heard this they began to mourn, (verse 4) which began what Judaism calls “the three weeks of mourning” – 21 days - between Tammuz 17 and Av 9/10, which is still observed to this day by the nation of Israel.
Av 9/10 the Fast of Av, falls on Thursday/Friday, when both Temples of Israel were burned to the ground 656 years apart (along with many other national tragedies happening on this same fast day to Israel down through the ages). It was the day “the spies returned” after being inside the Promised Land for 40 days - Num 13:25. (The Jews teach the spies left out for the Promised Land on Sivan 29.) Israel refused to believe the report of Joshua and Caleb about the good things of the Promised Land. The following day, Av 10, was the day of national Israel’s unbelief, mistrust and rebellion against the Lord when the ‘Children’ attempted to “cross over” into the Land by their own power, without the leading of Moses or the Lord, which ended in complete disaster for them - Num 14. That provoked the Lord to threaten national Israel with extermination but then He relented again after the interceding of Moses, and instead, He assessed the 40 year wilderness journey (2 years at Mt Sinai, 38 years on the journey itself) against them along with the sentence of death of all over 20 years of age during those 40 years, which prevented those souls from being able to ‘cross over the Jordan’ the first time - Num 14. The fast of Av 9/10 is the second most mournful day in Judaism, after the Day of Atonement, prompting the rabbis to sit in sackcloth and ashes while reciting the Book of Lamentations.
Tishri 1 falls on Sabbath and is the “Feast of the New Moon”/“Feast of Trumpets” and is the opening day of the Jewish Civil calendar. Lev 23:24 calls this day a Sabbath, no matter on what day it falls; it is also ‘high sabbath’ #4. This day begins the start of Fall and arrives just after the completion of the grape harvest, in the month of Elul in Israel, which is the beginning of the FINAL harvest (of the utterly wicked) representing the last 3 ½ years of the Tribulation – Rev 14:18-20. It was this harvest to which Yeshua was referring in John 4:35, while yet standing in a field of unharvested wheat...when He said to the disciples, “Say not ye there are yet four months, and then cometh the harvest?” - the final harvest ! There are 4 Jewish months, 120 days, between Sivan and Elul. Elul is the end of summer, the time of the beginning of the final harvest…of grapes. These four months are a symbol of the season of Summer, between wheat - which always represents national Israel in the Bible - to the grape harvest - which always represents the utterly wicked in the Bible at the end of summer - the beginning of Fall. The wheat harvest and the summer season are symbols of the first 3 ½ years of the Tribulation. (The grape harvest is a symbol of the last 3 ½ years of the Tribulation.) These ‘120’ days, 4 months, are a type of God’s warning to national Israel that they MUST PREPARE by coming to salvation in Him no later than the middle of the Tribulation, or be ‘cut off’ eternally at the beginning of the grape harvest, from their Holy God and the congregation of Israel. This is just like Noah’s warning to the wicked around him - that in ‘120’ years, the final judgment of the Flood from Almighty God was coming upon the whole Earth and everyone in it. The Lord said in Gen 6:3…“My spirit shall not always strive with man…yet his days shall be one hundred twenty (years).” The Lord will only strive again with the wicked for the first half of the Tribulation. This type of 120 days/4 months is also a symbol of the whole 6,000 years (120 x 50 Jubilee years) of “the Adamic age” – the “day of man.” [ If March 31, 2013, the Feast of Firstfruits is Day 1 of the Tribulation, 1260 days later - the exact middle of the Tribulation - will fall on Sunday, September 11, 2016, Elul 8, 5776,…EXACTLY inside the season of the grape harvest in national Israel! This is a rare happening, as only when Firstfruits falls in March as it does in 2013, will the middle of the Tribulation fall in the month of Elul, at the literal time of the grape harvest in Israel!]
Tishri 9/10 falls on Sunday/Monday, the Day of Atonement, which the Bible calls the day of “affliction,” the day of eternal “cutting off” (Heb: ‘karath’) from the Lord Himself and from the congregation of Israel, of any soul who refuses to ‘afflict’ himself in repentance and turning from sin by that day, Lev 23:26-32. It is called “a sabbath of rest” and is also ‘high sabbath’#5, on whatever day it falls. If the Feast of Firstfruits on March 31,2013 is Day 1 of the 7 years of Tribulation,1290 days later will fall on Tuesday, October 11, 2016, the day of Tishri 9, Jewish year 5777, the day the Beast will commit “the abomination that desolates,” - Dan 11:36-37; 12:11, Matt 24:15-20 - and declares himself above GOD, having no regard for any god…that day falling neither “in the winter nor on a sabbath” – Matt 24:20. [Revelation reveals that no soul comes to salvation in the last half of the Tribulation as the wicked “did not repent” - Rev 9:20-21; 16:9,11.]
Tishri 15 falls on Sabbath, the first day of seven of the Feast of Tabernacles, but is also ‘high sabbath’ #6 no matter on what day it falls according to Lev 23:35…”ye shall do no servile work therein.”
Tishri 21 falls on Friday, and is the end of the seven days of Tabernacles.
Tishri 22 falls on Sabbath, but according to Lev 23:39 it is also ‘high sabbath’ #7, as “ye shall do no servile work therein.” It is sometimes referred to as ‘the great Eighth day’ and is a symbol of the eternal God-commanded rite of “circumcision” – a setting apart and consecration unto the Lord on the 8th day after human birth, the day upon which a ‘priest of the Lord’ is deemed fit for service, and also, it symbolizes the righteous purity of Eternity no matter on what day it falls.
Kislev 25 falls on Friday, the first day of the 8 days of the Feast of Dedication, (Hanukkah) and the last day of the feast always falls on Friday.
Tebeth 10 falls on Friday, the Fast of Tebeth, when king Nebuchadnezzar
came down to begin his siege against Jerusalem - 2 Kings 25:1-2.
Adar 13, falls on Thursday, the Fast of Esther
Adar 14 and 15, fall on Friday and Sabbath, as Purim and Shushan Purim, in the book of Esther.
The year of perfect order - always opens on the Biblical/Sacred calendar on Thursday, Nisan 1 at or close to the New Moon, and closes the following year on Adar 29, at or close to the New Moon, which is usually a Monday. Only in such a year as ‘order’ does the phenomena above occur. This calendar year runs from Spring to Spring, at the season when God comes to visit!
“And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon [*Rosh Chodesh] to another [*Rosh Chodesh] and from one sabbath* to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD”- Is 66:23.
*Rosh Chodesh: Strong’s # H2320
*Sabbath: Strong’s #H7676: 7th day, Day of Atonement, 7th year, week
WHAT YEARS CAN BE PROVED TO BE ‘YEARS OF PERFECT ORDER’ ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE AND THE ROSETTA CALENDAR?
If the Creator’s 6,000 years of the ‘6 days of Creation’ in Genesis 1 (“a day for a year”- “a year for a day” - Psalm 90:4 and 2 Peter 3:8) end at the beginning of the Fall Hebrew year 5780 opening on Tishri 1, 2019, than Year 1 of the World was 3981/3980 B.C. [ If 5780 is the closing of the 6,000 years, then the Jews are off 220 years on their own calendar, 5780 + 220 = completes 6,000 years. 22 characters completes the Hebrew alphabet + 5 vowels which may or may not be used.]
[I personally believe that the Lord will begin His brand-new eternal counts of years in the year of perfect order - beginning in the Spring of Nisan 1, 2020, 5780, and a new, holy Sabbatical and Jubilee cycle will begin on Tishri 1, 2020, at the opening of Jewish year 5781, still in the year of perfect order of 2020, thru Adar 29, 2021.]
Noah’s Flood took place on the Civil calendar, “in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month,” - Gen 7:11 - which is the month of ‘Heshvan’ (Heb: Marcheshvan) in the fall at the time of the “early/former rain. ” The Hebrew definition of Marcheshvan is “drop down” (as rain). Heshvan is the second month on the Civil calendar and the eighth month on the Sacred calendar.
In the Biblical narrative of the Flood in Genesis 7, the Holy Spirit notes precise and specific timing for the age of Noah at the beginning of the Flood and for the ending of the Flood, i.e. beginning …“In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month…” - Gen 7:11. Then, this exact statement is made about the end of the period of 150 days that “the water prevailed upon the earth” - Gen 7:24: “ And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat” - Gen 8:4. On the Civil calendar, counting 150 days from the eve of 17th day of the second month (Heshvan 16/17) to the eve of the 17th day of the 7th month, (Nisan 16/17) brings one to Nisan 17, which is ONLY and always “a day of rest” – a sabbath - in a particular type of Jewish year - a year of perfect order. For this to have occurred as Gen 8:4 clearly says, Nisan 1 had to have opened on a Thursday, 17 days prior on the Sacred calendar in order for the ark to come to rest on Sabbath. When the Bible refers to “rest” it is always symbolized physically and spiritually by the Sabbath day, the Sabbatical year, the Jubilee year, the Millennial Kingdom Age and Eternity itself. “There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his” - Hebrews 4:9-10 . Rest always comes in the ‘7th year, the ‘49th’ year of Israel’s sabbatical cycle followed by the rest of the ‘50’th year of Jubilee, which is really Year 1 of the next 49 years - Lev 25. In the Bible and in Judaism, the number ‘49’ is a symbol of Saturday, the 7th day of the week, and number ‘50’ is a symbol of Sunday, the 8th day which is really the 1st day of the next 7 days of the week. The number ‘8’ in Judaism stands for “new beginnings.” The numbers 1, 8 and 50 are called ‘transcendent numbers’ as they transcend, going beyond 7, according to Judaism.
Bible chronologists tell us that the years of the history of the Patriarchs from Year 1 of Creation to the death of Joseph may be counted from Scripture itself. Noah died 2006 years from Year 1; Abraham was born 2008 years from Year 1. Noah was born 1,056 years before the Flood. The ‘Deluge’ began in year 1,656 from Year 1 of the World, when Noah was 600 years of age. (Bible History Old Testament, Alfred Edersheim, William B Erdmans, pages 1X to X).
If the Fall of 3981 B.C. was Year 1 of the World, 1,656 years and 5 months (150 days) later would have of 2325 B.C. The Rosetta calendar shows that in that year, Jewish year 1436, Nisan 1, opened on Thursday, which made it ‘a year of perfect order’ in which Noah’s Ark came to rest on Sabbath, Nisan 17.
[In the ‘set time’ of Spring - when God comes to visit.]
We do not know the date of the year, in Genesis 17, when the Lord came to visit Abraham to deliver to him the ‘PROMISE ’ of a son, Isaac, with whom He promised to establish His eternal covenant. The first Isaac exemplifies the Second Isaac - Yeshua. Gen 17:1 says that Abraham was 99 years of age at this time.
When the Trinity came to visit Abraham and Sarah in Genesis 18, in the same year as chapter 17, Abraham bowed before all THREE (he was not allowed to bow before mere angels), and addressed THEM in the singular as “My Lord,” at noon time (v.1...”at the heat of the day”). Abraham specifically instructed Sarah to prepare a meal for THEM: (v.6: “take flour and knead it and make cakes upon the grill”). Judaism teaches that Passover begins on Nisan 14, at noon, by which time, all leaven must have already been removed from each house in preparation for the beginning of the Feast of Unleavened Bread at the even, the beginning of Nisan 15, at sundown. Those cakes were “unleavened cakes” as Abraham’s specific instructions to Sarah were to knead the dough in order to keep out any remaining leaven that could have been in the house. The only time Israel was specifically instructed to eat unleavened bread under the Law was during the week of Unleavened Bread. Though this occurred before the Mosaic Law was given, the Lord had obviously instructed His people - beginning with Adam and Eve down through Abraham and his line, in the principles of the future Law of Moses. It was on this day – on Passover that the Lord announced the future birth of Isaac, in Gen 17:21, saying to Abraham “Sarah shall bear unto you at this set time in the next year. ” The word ‘set time’ in Hebrew - Gen 1:14 - is ‘a season’ which in Hebrew is “mow’ed” - a reference to the Mosaic feast days. This day though not named, yet so specifically implied, is absolutely noon time of Nisan 14, the Feast of Passover. In v. 18:14 the Lord clearly promised ... “at the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.” Again, in the Hebrew, “the time appointed” is the word mow’ed which is ‘a season,’ revealing a Jewish feast day. In v. 10, the Lord gave another clue about what season this was: “I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life.” The phrase ‘time of life’ in Hebrew is the word ‘Chay’ which means “green vegetation, flowing of fresh water, the reviving and renewal of springtime.”

If 3981/3980 B.C. was Year 1 of the World, and Abraham was born 2008 years after creation – in the spring of 1972 B.C. – and Abraham was 100 years old when Isaac was born – Gen 21:5 – in 1872 B.C., the Rosetta calendar shows that Isaac was born in ‘a year of perfect order’ on the ‘high sabbath’ of Thursday, Nisan 15. [This is a fact that Judaism also teaches], at the opening of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. 8 days later, Isaac was circumcised – Gen 21:4 - on Thursday, Nisan 22, in Jewish year 1889.
The DISPENSATION OF ‘PROMISE’ OPENED IN A YEAR OF PERFECT ORDER, WITH THE BIRTH OF ‘THE PROMISED ONE’ – ISAAC.
[In the ‘set time’ of Spring - when God comes to visit.]
Because of what Exodus 12 says, we can know for sure that ALL events of the nation of Israel’s first year occurred in ‘a year of perfect order,’… at FIRST:
1. the institution of the eternal statute of Passover
2. the stating of the eternal irrevocable truth: “When I see the blood, I will pass over you.”
3. Israel’s freedom from the bondage of Egypt
4. Israel’s crossing of the Red Sea
5. the 9 stages of Redemption to Mt. Sinai, which concluded with the victory over
Amalek - (a symbol of “the ‘mixed’ people in the land” round about the nation of Israel) about whom the Lord swore… “The Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation” - Ex 17:16. (One of the definitions of “forever” in Hebrew is: “generation and generation.”)
6. when the Lord uttered a ‘telescoping’ statement to Moses… “ Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.” Ex 19:4, at which time the Lord betrothed national Israel to Him forever
7. the Lord “came down from on high” when He came to visit - the nation of Israel at Mt. Sinai to meet with Moses and gave Israel and the original 72 nations the Ten Commandments, and the Mosaic Law which OPENED THE DISPENSATION OF ‘LAW’ including His Eternal ‘order of worship’
9. the breaking of the Law and the original tablets- with the worship of the molton calf
10. and so on…
[In the Season of Spring - when God comes to visit, when He called national Israel to “Arise, My love, My fair one, and come away.”]
Though we do not know the precise year that the Children of Israel crossed over into the Promised Land with Joshua at the end of their 40 year wilderness journey in Joshua 1-5, they definitely crossed over on Nisan 10 - Jos 4:19. In Josh 5, the males born after the first circumcision just after release from Egypt, were circumcised, which “rolled away the reproach of Egypt.” After healing, 3 days later they kept the Passover on Nisan 14/15, they ate the produce of the Land on Nisan 15 on the Feast of Unleavened Bread, after which the manna stopped the next day on Nisan 16. Joshua then met Yeshua - Who was “the Captain of the Lord’s host” – Josh 5:6-13 - and then Joshua and Israel were instructed on how to capture and destroy Jericho - Josh 6. Because of this precise day count in the text, it is very likely ALL this occurred in a year of perfect order.’ It is also very likely that anytime the Bible mentions a particular day- especially in “the first month” of Nisan, this signifies to the reader that it is indeed inside a year of perfect order, especially concerning such a significant event like Israel ‘crossing over’ into the Promised Land the FIRST time!
[In the Season of Spring - when God comes to visit, when He entreats national Israel to “Arise, My love, My fair one, and come away.”]
Beginning in Ezekiel 40:1, the prophet receives the blueprint for the eternal Temple of Ezekiel in the great vision contained in the next 8 chapters, from “a man” who was Lord Yeshua, the High Priest of Israel. The text is precisely dated: “In the five and twentieth year of our captivity, in the beginning of the year, in the tenth day of the month, in the fourteenth year after that the city was smitten, in the selfsame day the hand of the Lord was upon me, and brought me thither.” If 587 B.C is the year that the phrase “the city was smitten” (some say 586 B.C.) when Solomon’s Temple was destroyed and the city of Jerusalem was devastated by Nebuchadnezzar - 2 Kings 25:8-9, then the phrase “in the fourteenth year after that” was year 573 B.C. Jewish year 3188,which began in the winter on Tebeth 10, “the beginning of the year in the tenth day of the month,” and continued thru to spring and into the summer on Av 9/10.
The Rosetta calendar reveals that in year 573 B.C., 3188, Nisan 1 fell on a Thursday, signifying that it began a year of perfect order. But even more wonderful, that particular Sabbath of Nisan 10, of course, fell at the beginning of the week of Passover and Unleavened Bread, and as such, was “the Great Sabbath,” the “Shabbos Ha Gadol!” What a day for the Lord to deliver those magnificent last 8 chapters of the book of Ezekiel concerning the Holy Lord’s eternal “order of worship” of Himself plus the wonderful explanation of Temple regimen that will be carried out in perpetuity - for evermore - and how and when He, Yeshua the Prince, will award His eternal inheritances to His own beloved brethren, the Twelve Tribes of Israel – Ezk 48/49.
[In the Season of Spring - when God comes to visit.]
Mary, the mother of Jesus was overshadowed by the Holy Spirit in the Jewish 9th month of Kislev. The Light of the World became Flesh at the darkest time of the year - near the winter solstice! The father of John the Baptist, Zacharias, was a priest after the order of Abijah/Abia - Luke 1 - which was the eighth priestly course – 1 Chron 24:10; 27. The cycle of priestly and levitical courses always begins in the 1st Jewish month on Nisan 1 in the spring, at the beginning of the new Sacred Year. The cyclical courses were 2 weeks in length, plus extra service on special holidays. Therefore Zacharias was free to come home to his wife very close to the first of June, in the 3rd Jewish month of Sivan, Jewish year 3755, 6 B.C. probably just before or just after Pentecost. Elizabeth immediately conceived with John, and “she hid herself for five months” - Luke 1:24. In Elizabeth’s 6th month of pregnancy (v.36) which would have been the 9th Jewish month of Kislev, 3756, 6 B.C. Mary came to visit Elizabeth, and baby John “leaped in her (Elizabeth’s) womb with joy” - v.41 - because Mary was carrying “my Lord.” Mary stayed with Elizabeth “about three months” - v.56) - which would have been until the end of the 12th Jewish month of Adar, 3756,5 B.C., just before the beginning of Nisan, exactly 6 months preceding the birth of Jesus, when John was born. John the Baptist was the forerunner of “the Christ, the Lamb of God” by 6 months. Israel’s Messiah BEGAN the announcement of His plan for their national Redemption in the season of SPRING, spoken through the lips of John’s own father, the priest Zacharias. By the power of the Holy Spirit, he uttered the profound prophetic declaration which foreshadowed the Cross, on the 8th day - at the circumcision of John in the spring month of Nisan, at the opening of the Sacred calendar year, in a year of perfect order: “Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people,” - Luke 1:68. John himself, later uttered this statement as an adult, with these words… ”Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world” - John 1:29,36 - at the end of the latter rain, in the month of Nisan, which is the month of Redemption and Deliverance for the nation of Israel and all mankind, as he himself began preaching “the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins” – Lu 3:3.
John the Baptist, the forerunner, was born exactly 6 months before Yeshua the Messiah, in ‘a year of perfect order’ according to the Rosetta calendar, very possibly on Nisan 15, (the day Israel expects Elijah to arrive).
[In the Season of Spring - when God comes to visit.]
6 months later, the Jewish royal 7th month of Tishri, (Sept/Oct) opened the fall season. The Fall was the season of the birth of Jesus, (9 months from Kislev to the beginning of Tishri) when He was born as the King, Savior and Messiah in the Hebrew month of Tishri, 3757, 5 B.C., referred to in Judaism as “the royal month,” as the kings of Judah ascended to their royal thrones in that month. (The Mysterious Numbers of the Hebrew Kings, by Edwin R. Thiele by kregel Publications.) Jesus was born “the king of the Jews”- out of His own tribe of Judah and Tishri was the only appropriate month for His royal birth. That is the reason “the men from the East” presented Him with regal gifts fit for a king, and for his future burial. Jesus was born the Deliverer of Israel, and the Son of David “at the end of the (levitical) year” on the Sacred Calendar, but Zacharias had prophesized that God had already visited His people Israel in the preceding spring - at the beginning of the Sacred year, in the month of Nisan, in a year of perfect order.
Luke 3:23 says this about the beginning of Jesus ministry to Israel: “And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli.” Jesus was born in the 7th month of Tishri, on the Sacred calendar. He had turned 30 in the month of Tishri of 26 A.D. at the opening of Jewish Sabbatical year 3787.
30 years back from Tishri, 26 A.D. 3787, was Tishri of Jewish year, 3757, 5, B.C.
In Tishri, the Fall of Jewish year 3757, 5 B.C….the Bible says this about the birth of Christ in Lu 2:7: “And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.” This verse is a clue that Jesus was born during the Feast of Tabernacles, which is also called “feast of ingathering“ at the end of the year - the end of the agricultural year and the Mosaic “feast” cycle as Ex 23:16 says: “…and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field.” The feast of Tabernacles is one of three Mosaic feasts which require “all men” to appear in Jerusalem - Ex 34:22-23, 2 Chon 8:13. During the Feast of Tabernacles the city of Jerusalem and environs, including Bethlehem - were swollen beyond their limits by visiting pilgrims from all around. Therefore, the only place for Mary and Joseph to lay Baby Jesus was outside in a manger because “there was no room for them in the inn” – Lu 2:7 - as it was filled with the visiting pilgrims. Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus actually physically fulfilled the Law, as the manger outside was a type of ‘sukkah’ or ‘booth’ in which God commanded the Israelites to live during the 7 days of Tabernacles, Lev 23:42-43.
Yeshua fulfilled the Law by being circumcised on the 8th day as the Law commanded. So, the Bible reader can know the schedule of the first week of the birth of Jesus: The Rosetta calendar for 5 B.C., Jewish year 3757, in the ‘royal month’ of Tishri reveals the following: Nisan 1, 6 months prior - opened a year of perfect order and as such, Tishri 15 always falls on the 7th day of Sabbath - which is also ‘high sabbath’ #6 - of the levitical year.
Because of the year of perfect order, Jesus Christ was born on Saturday, the ‘double Sabbath’ of Tishri 15* on the opening day of the Feast of Tabernacles. This would have allowed Him to be circumcised 8 days later, on the following Saturday, again a ‘double Sabbath,’ Tishri 22, which is also the last ‘high sabbath’ (#7) of the Mosaic Feast year. Jesus Christ was ‘set apart in consecration’ to the Father on the eighth day after His birth, made ready for His future priestly duties!
John the Baptist’s birth opened the Mosaic Feast cycle 6 months previously, in the spring of 5 B.C., in Jewish year 3756 , and Yeshua’s birth closed the Mosaic feast cycle, in the month of Tishri, 5 B.C. Jewish year 3757.
[ * If Day 1 of the Tribulation begins on March 31, 2013, and 1290 days later – the beast declares himself above any God in the month of Tishri, in the year of 5777 , then, from 3757 to 5777 = 2020 years, from Tishri to Tishri ! ]
[ Born in a year of perfect order, Isaac was born on Nisan 15, which was also the first ‘high sabbath’ of 7, and the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. 8 days later he was ‘set apart unto the Lord’ on Nisan 22. Yeshua the Messiah was born in a year of perfect order on the Sabbath, Tishri 15, which was the 6th ‘high sabbath’ which made it a ‘double Sabbath’ and the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles. He was ‘set apart unto the Lord’ on a double Sabbath, the Sabbath day of Tishri 22, which is the last ‘high sabbath’ of 7.]
Upon the conclusion of the Feast of Tabernacles, the pilgrims left the vicinity of Jerusalem immediately upon the end of the feast as there were many end-of-the-agricultural-year chores awaiting them back home. This freed up housing in Bethlehem and Jerusalem, hence, Mary and Joseph were able to move into a house immediately where the ‘men from the East’ found them by following the Star – Matt 2:11.
Jesus the Messiah appeared to Israel in the early spring of 27 A.D., in the Jewish Sabbatical year 3787… first, for His baptism, and then for His 40 day testing in the wilderness, before His appearance again to John the Baptist in John 1. Daniel 9:25-26 says the Anointed One was to be cut off “ after …seven weeks and sixty and two weeks” (69 ‘weeks’ of years - sabbatical years), which is a total of 483 years – Dan 9:25-26. Jewish Sabbatical year 3304 opened in the fall on Tishri 1, 458 B.C. which is very likely when Artaxerxes – Ezra 7:7 - made his decree - Ezra 7:13 - for Ezra the prophet to return and restore “thy holy city” - Dan 9:24 - of Jerusalem. Ezra and the people with him left Babylon the following spring, on Nisan 1, in 457 B.C. still in Jewish Sabbatical year 3304. From Nisan 1, 457 B.C. to Elul 29, 26 A.D. is exactly ’69 weeks of years,’ or 483 years. The next day on Tishri 1, 26 A.D. Jewish Sabbatical year 3787 opened, which was the beginning of Daniel’s ‘70th week. Jesus, as ‘the anointed one’ indeed came to Israel …after …the completion of ”7 weeks and 62 weeks of years” according to Scripture, after His baptism and the 40 day wilderness testing which prepared Him for His ministry by Nisan 8, as commanded by the Law - Lev 8:33-36 and 9:1 - in the month of Nisan 27,A.D. 3787, in the Spring “at the time of life”…”at the set time” when God comes to visit.
The Rosetta calendar shows that Nisan 1, 3787, in 27 A.D. opened on a Thursday, marking the beginning of the Sacred year as ‘a year of perfect order.’
The first half of Daniel’s 70th week and ALL the miracles and events in the first 3 years of the ministry of Yeshua the Messiah of Israel began in a year of perfect order.
[In the Season of Spring - when God comes to visit: when He called for national Israel to “Arise, My love, My fair one- come away.”]
The proof text about the beginning of Daniel’s ‘seventy sevens’ is in Ezra 7 - for “restoring and rebuilding the holy city” by the decree of Persian king Artaxerxes in his ‘7th year as king, for Ezra the prophet and high priest of Israel who was in the holy priestly line of Zadok. Ezra was qualified by the Lord to restore Jerusalem spiritually - from the Bible, legally – from the Law of Moses, as well as socially with the setting up of a whole new civil and spiritual societal structure for Judah and Jerusalem – Ezra 7:10,25-26. The counts of Daniel’s ’70 weeks of years’ are counted on solar years, not lunisolar years - which require “computation by fractions” in order to correctly fit in Daniel’s 69 ‘weeks of years’ to the correct year of ‘the anointed one’ with Nehemiah, who was only a political figure in Israel – neither a prophet nor a high priest, but only a governor. Nehemiah did not receive ‘a decree’ from Artaxerxes – some 13-14 years after Ezra, but only a letter of ‘safe passage’ for his trip back to Jerusalem – Neh 2:7-9 – Nehemiah was only commanded to repair the ruined walls of Jerusalem and the broken gates – Neh 2:17-20. Nehemiah was not appointed by the Lord to restore the civil and spiritual structure of Jerusalem.
Yeshua Messiah was anointed for the beginning of His ministry at His baptism, not for the ending of His ministry, at the Cross - Matt 3:16-17.
Israel publishes their own Jewish calendar that begins in 1 A.D. They confirm that Nisan 1, 27 A.D., 3787 and Nisan 1, 30 A.D., 3790 were years that began a year perfect order and were the ONLY such years to do so between 24 A.D. and 37 A.D. The Lord graciously set apart these 2 years only in a 13 year stretch so that we as Bible students would come to know in what years Jesus, the Christ came to Israel for ministry in order to accomplish His death, burial and resurrection, 3 years later.
All of Yeshua Messiah’s first year of ministry and His first miracles occurred in a year of perfect order: His teaching was based on the ‘Kingdom Gospel’ to the nation of Israel about how they must first enter “the Kingdom of God” through “the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins” as He said: “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God” Jn 3:5. That was required of Israel (and all men) before they could enter “the Kingdom of Heaven” which Messiah will bring back with Him at His Second Coming and set up on Earth as Israel’s long-promised Messianic Kingdom of David, at last, at the end of the Tribulation, the beginning of the Kingdom.
[In the Season of Spring - when God comes to visit, when He calls for national Israel to “Arise, My love, My fair one - come away.”]
Three years later, in the spring of 30 A.D. 3790, beginning in the month of Nisan, these things came true: the prophecies about the arrival of Messiah ben Joseph - the ‘Suffering Servant’ - (Messiah Yeshua) riding into Jerusalem on a donkey’s colt – Zech 9:9; Jn 12:15 - from both Holy Scripture and the Talmud; the miracle of the resurrection of Lazarus; the delivery of the last piercing message of ‘the Kingdom Gospel’ when the Messiah pronounced this horrible telescoping prophecy (70-71 A.D.; 135 A.D.; the last 3 ½ years of the Tribulation) against Jerusalem in Luke 19: 41-44: “And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes. For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation;” the fulfillment of Isaiah 53 and all the O.T. prophecies about Messiah’s death and resurrection, along with the visual reality of every one of the Mosaic sacrifices of which Israel had been rehearsing for over 1,500 years - were physically revealed before their own eyes by the shed blood of their own Lamb of God hanging on a Cross…
which CLOSED THE DISPENSATION OF ‘LAW’… and OPENED THE DISPENSATION OF ‘GRACE’ in ‘a year of perfect order.’
His gathering of all the O.T. saints out of Abraham’s bosom up to Paradise – in Heaven, Yeshua’s bodily resurrection at the end of “the third day” as He had promised, His final 40 days post resurrection and finally His Ascension back to Heaven - all took place in a year of perfect order! Also, the precious gift of the comforting ministry of the Holy Spirit as He began to indwell the saints, for the first time, the believers of the Church Age, took place in the wonderful year of perfect order!
Daniel’s ‘counts of ‘years’ continued on for 3.5 years after the completion of the 483rd year of the prophecy – from Tishri 1, 26 A.D. 3787 , to Nisan 1, 30 A.D., 3790 , and were finally ‘cut off’ at the Cross in the 486.5th year of the prophecy at the same time ‘the anointed one’ was ‘cut off’ - which completed the first half of Daniel’s ‘70th week.
[The Lord also ‘cut off’ national Israel’s Sabbatical and Jubilee cycle at the Cross because of the nation’s unbelief. In Isaiah 1:4-5,12-15, the Lord said these words about His people Israel: “Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward. Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts? Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting. Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them. And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.” This state of national Israel’s spiritual rebellion against the Lord and moral turpitude has lasted before the time of that writing in Isaiah clear down through the end of the Tribulation, except for very short periods of ‘return’ to the Lord during the reign of Judah’s kings Hezekiah and Josiah. This disgraceful state only intensified upon Israel’s rejection of Jesus Christ as her Messiah, Redeemer and King. This is why Yeshua and the sabbatical and Jubilee cycle were ‘cut off’ at the Cross. The Lord will pick up the count of Daniel’s last 3.5 years beginning in the middle of the Tribulation and the final year of the Tribulation will be the final year of Daniel’s “seventy weeks” prophecy, in the 490th year, beginning on Tishri 1, 2019 until Elul 29, 2020, Jewish year 5780.
[In the Season of Spring - when God comes to visit: when He called for national Israel to “Arise, My love, My fair one- come away.”]
A few important years in Jewish history that were ‘years of perfect order’:
516 B.C. 71 years after the destruction of Solomon’s Temple in 587 B.C., the Second Temple was completed and dedicated.
71 A.D. Roman General Titus returned to Jerusalem the following year after his destruction of the Second Temple in 70 A.D., fulfilling the prophecy of Jesus in Matt 24:2… “….There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.” History says Titus totally cleared the ground of the Temple Mount and spread salt over the bare earth to keep anything from growing there for years.
135 A.D. Roman Emperor Hadrian came to Jerusalem to put down the rebellion of Bar-Kochba, the false messiah, and razed the beginnings of ‘the Third Temple’ to the ground and slaughtered 600,000 Jews in the process.
1492 A.D. Columbus discovers America.
1918 A.D. The end of WW1 on November 11.
1929 A.D. The Wall Street crash and the beginning of the Great Depression.
1945 A.D. The end of WW11 on September 2, when the remaining Jews left alive from the Holocaust were freed.
1949 A.D. Modern Israel officially became a recognized nation-state by acceptance into the U.N.
The next Feast of Firstfruits will open at “the twinkling of an eye” during evening twilight in Jerusalem on March 31, 2013, after Sundown there which will begin at 6:57 p.m., which will be during the daytime of Sabbath, March 30 in the northern hemisphere. The only day for the resurrection of the saints of the N.T. Church Age, the BODY of Christ, is the same day in the same season, at the same feast, at the same time in which Jesus Christ, the HEAD of HIS BODY arose, at the end of the Sabbath during the time of twilight in Jerusalem, at the twinkling of an eye when one Jewish day changes into the next, at the opening of the Feast of Firstfruits – of the Barley – the first crop ready for the reaping of harvest in Israel. God is a God of perfect order. The Lord is “the Husbandman” and as such, like any farmer, He harvests His crops in perfect agricultural order, beginning at the beginning of the harvest season! Always remember what 2 Timothy 2:6-7 says: “The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits. Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.”
Because He is the HEAD of the BODY and represents the Firstfruits of the FIRST crop – Barley, of course, His BODY must also be represented by that same crop – the FIRST crop – Barley. It would be out of order for the BODY of Christ to be the firstfruits of any other agricultural crop of national Israel that comes later on in the harvest season! After all, we, the BODY – were ALREADY raised with Christ on that Feast of Firstfruits – spiritually - as this text says: “Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together , and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:” Ephesians 2:5-6…[in the simple English past tense of the Greek ‘aorist’ tense!]
The Hebrew word for Barley “firstfruits” which are un processed (by Grace), a sheaf taken straight out of the field for presentation to the Lord, is a feminine noun - which represents Christ and His BODY-BRIDE, Strong’s Hebrew: #H7225 – Re’shiyth - Lev 23:10; Greek: #536 – Aparche - James 1:18.
The Hebrew word for Wheat “firstfruits” is a male noun - which represents the 144,000 of Israel, who will be the first fruits coming out of eretz Israel - between the borders of the land – itself, as processed wheat (by the Tribulation) in the form of flour and loaves containing leaven: Strong’s Hebrew #H1061 – Bikkuwr - Lev 23:17.
The spring of 2013 to the spring of 2020 is 7 years. There is absolute proof in the Bible that the Tribulation is 7 years long, according to the first half with the counts of days in Daniel 12, Rev 11 and 12. The 7 years are divided into two halves of 3 ½ years each – Rev 10:8-11 - the first half is called “the travail of the woman” – in Is 13:8; 21:3; Mic 4:10; I Thess 5:3; Rev 12:2 - and “the birth pangs of the Messiah” by the Jews. The first half ends when the “travail of the woman” ends and she delivers her man child up to the Throne of His Father – Rev 12:5-6. Yeshua told Judah this in John 16:21: “A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.” The last half of the Tribulation is called “the great and dreadful Day of the Lord” in Mal 4:5, which is directed solely upon the utterly wicked which still remain on the Earth. (The remnant of Israel and the Gentiles are protected during the last half of the Tribulation.)
In the next coming year of perfect order of the spring of 2020 A.D., Jesus Christ, the Messiah of Israel will return to the nation of Israel and the world in the season of spring, at “the set time” at “the time of life” at “the appointed time” in the season when God comes to visit His people Israel, in order to physically deliver His beloved redeemed remnant for evermore. And this time, when He entreats her to “Arise My love and come away”… “all Israel” will follow Him joyously without shrinking back…and will never leave His Presence again!
Daniel’s 70th week opened in ‘a year of perfect order,’ and it will close in ‘a year of perfect order!’
After some 4,000 years, the whole house of Israel - Ezk 37: 9-28 - no longer has to be in fear of “the people round about...” After 72 years from the birth of modern Israel in 1948, the wonderful twelve-fold promise of Jeremiah 29:10-14 will be fully fulfilled: “For thus saith the Lord, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place. For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. And I will be found of you, saith the Lord: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the Lord; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.”
The remnant will finally come out of the world system of spiritual Babylon, and will be led into their beloved Promised Land by their own dear Messiah Yeshua, who finally for the last time like He did the first time…can say to them “… I brought you unto Myself” again in a year of perfect order, in the spring of 2020. Yeshua will immediately build an altar in order to cleanse the whole Jewish levitical system beginning on Nisan 1, and the priesthood and the Levites will be ready for service beginning on Nisan 8. Then the Messiah will keep the Feast of Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and then will again, for the third time, lay the foundation of Ezekiel’s Temple in the second Jewish month of Iyar, like the previous two Temples – 1 Kings 6:1; Ezra 3:8. He will stand with His sons and His brethren and set forth the workmen in the house of God. There will be weeping and great joy, and singing and the playing of instruments, after the ordinance of David before Him – Ezra 3:9-10; 2 Chron 2:4. They that are afar off will come to help Him build the Temple through the summer months – Zech 6:15 - in order that the Temple of Ezekiel may be completed by Tishri 1, in the fall of 2020, Jewish year 5781, still in the year of perfect order, after the completion of Daniel’s final 490th year. The beginning of the first year of Jubilee of Eternity will open a whole new, pure, eternal Sabbatical cycle on Tishri 1, which will officially inaugurate the opening of the Messianic Kingdom of David on Earth and Yeshua the Messiah of Israel, the Son of David, the King of all the Earth will OPEN THE DISPENSATION OF THE KINGDOM IN ‘THE YEAR OF PERFECT ORDER.’
Yeshua, like Solomon, Zerubbable and Jeshua before Him, will officiate at the Feast of Trumpets and the New Moon, on Tishri 1. He will carry out His Priestly duties on the Day of Atonement on Tishri 9-10, when “He will sprinkle many nations” (Is 52:15) as Israel’s High Priest. Then He will oversee the sacrifices at the unbelievably joyous Feast of Ingathering - the Feast of Tabernacles - which very well might extend into the second week of celebratory rejoicing just as king Solomon’s first Tabernacles in his Temple, in I Kings 8:65. Yeshua will offer a dedicatory prayer for the Temple – 1 Kings 8:22-66 - and He Himself will be the Presence of His Shekinah Glory that will fill His Temple for evermore – Ezk 45:18-25. All the people in the Kingdom will be there - on top of Mt. Zion – which will be raised up as the largest and tallest mountain in all the Earth, offering praises with singing and musical instruments while encircling the altar with palm branches and other greens. The sound of their shouts of joy and praise along with the trumpets blast will reach far beyond the city of Jerusalem. At the end of the great celebration, Israel will return with overwhelming joy and gladness to their homes located on each Tribe’s eternal, long-promised inheritance which will have already been awarded to each, in the preceding spring, as Hosea 2:14-23, Ezekiel 47:13-23 and 48 say.
“…and the name of the city from that day shall be, The Lord is there.” Ezekiel 48:35
After a wait of 11 long years, in the midst of the strongest upheaval and breakdown of every strata of society of the whole world – especially in the nation of Israel, with all the signs in the Sun, the Moon and the Stars about which the Bible warns just before the Day of the Lord, the severe apostasy of the Church at large, the fall of America as the bastion of freedom and the leader of the free world, the demise of her as the spiritual lighthouse to the world along with the complete abrogation of the protectorate of Israel, and after the immeasurable increase of utter hardness of heart and wickedness of men causing the out of control ramping up of the five sins of the Tribulation: “…yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts” – Rev 9:20-21…
there is no way that the Lord will bypass the next coming year of perfect order beginning on Nisan 1, 2020, Jewish year 5780, in favor of the second or third such type years – in 2023 or 2026 – in order to finish the Adamic Age and begin the Kingdom! There is NO WAY! That would be completely out of order for such a precise God as He. He scheduled the solar Julian/ Gregorian calendars and the luni-solar Jewish calendar to reveal the lay-out of His very important years in such order down through the ages so that His PEOPLE COULD KNOW AND UNDERSTAND FOR SURE…and to have perfect confidence in Him - that like the wisest man in the world once wrote… “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.” Ecclesiastes 1:9-10.
“ For there is not anything which is hidden, except it be in order that it might be made known, nor has anything become hidden but in order that it might come into full view. Assuming that a person has ears to be hearing, let him be hearing. And He was saying to them, Keep ever a watchful eye on what you are hearing.”
