A possible calendar change, false signs and the new site!

Dear Readers:

Since the era of this blog is ending, I want to mention a few very important issues today!

The 1st part of this posting is about a possible calendar change in 2008, the 2nd part is a warning against false signs (supernatural phenomenon or aliens) and the 3rd part is about the new site.

1. The biblical calendar:

This is a brainstorming; no conclusion has been reached yet. All readers are invited to comment.

In 1513 BCE, YHWH changed the beginning of the year from the month of Ethanim (Tishri) to the month of Abib (Nisan). This apparently changed the biblical chronology by 6 months or half a year. Not that the time changed, but our perspective of it.

We understand that this change was not forever, but was a special arrangement by the Creator when his chosen physical people entered the “Promised Land”. This would imply that at a given point in time, the calendar will return to it’s original make-up and the first month of the year will once again be Ethanim/Tishri.

When would that happen? We do not understand fully the implications of these changes but we must consider 2 possible options:

* On 2008Ethanim14 (Tishri14) God retrospectively declares Ethanim/Tishri to be again th
e first month of the year and we start a new year count

* On 2012Ethanim14 (Tishri14) God retrospectively declares Ethanim/Tishri to be again the first month of the year and we start a new year count then

Emmanuel and I are not sure if there will be an addition or subtraction of six months in the chronological model of the sanctuary, but we do a brainstorming on this subject.

It is also possible that the Edenic Prophecy of Genesis3:15,16 was uttered 6 months after Adam was “passed over” by God’s angel of death on 3993Nisan14 when he sinned. Or maybe the festival of Booths, later given to the Israelites, was a symbolism for what happened to mankind o
n 3992Ethanim14. Maybe this living in temporal shelters (“Booths”) is prophetic or respective for the temporal bodies that Adam and Eve received.

If we have to change the start of the year in “2008” then this change in how we count time could proclaim a global change for this age of mankind…

2008Ethanim14 starts on Monday October 13 at
noon, New York time, or at the time of the sundown in Europe and the Middle East. The ninth hour of the day, presumably when Adam transgressed and when Jesus died, occurs during the middle of the morning of Tuesday October 14, EST, or during the mid-afternoon in Europe and the Middle East.

What will happen if this is really so?

We do not know. Perhaps a sign that it is time to crush the head of the serpent will occur. On 2008Abib14 the Pope and the President of the
United States were together at Ground Zero for a big mass. If there is something big to happen, it is probably an awfully big event.

For true Christians, there is another concept to consider: What about the Passover and the greater festival of Booths? These festival are all defined with the flexibility to permit such a calendar change, yes even an union of the Passsover, Cakes and Booths...

4 'These are [the] seasonal festivals of Jehovah, [the] holy conventions, which you should proclaim at their appointed times:
5 In-the-month, the first, on the 14th day of the month, between the 2 evenings is the passover to Jehovah.
6 'And on the 15th day of this month is the festival of unfermented-cakes to Jehovah. 7 days you should eat unfermented-cakes.
7 On-the-day, the first, you will have a holy convention occur. No sort of work of labour may you do.
8 But you must present an offering made by fire to Jehovah 7 days. On the 7th day there will be a holy convention. No sort of work of labour may you do (Leviticus23).

34 Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, 'On the 15th day of this 7th month is the festival of booths for 7 days to Jehovah.
35 On the first day is a holy convention. No sort of laborious work may you do.
36 7 days you should present an offering made by fire to Jehovah. On-the-day, the 8th, there should occur a holy convention for you, and you must present an offering made by fire to Jehovah. It is a solemn assembly. No sort of work of labour may you do.
37 'These are the seasonal festivals of Jehovah that you should proclaim as holy conventions, for presenting an offering made by fire to Jehovah: the burnt offering and the grain-offering of the sacrifice and the drink offerings according to the daily schedule,
38 besides the sabbaths of Jehovah and besides your gifts and besides all your vow offerings and besides all your voluntary offerings, which you should give to Jehovah.

39 However, on the 15th day of the 7th month, when you have gathered the produce of the land, you should celebrate the festival of Jehovah 7 days. On-the-day, the first, is a complete rest and on the day, the 8th, is a complete rest.
40 And you must take for yourselves on the first day the fruit of splendid trees, the fronds of palm trees and the boughs of branchy trees and of poplars of the torrent valley, and you must rejoice before Jehovah your God 7 days.
41 And you must celebrate it as a festival to Jehovah, 7 days in the year. As a statute to time indefinite during your generations, you should celebrate it in-the-month, the 7th.
42 It is in the booths you should dwell 7 days. All the natives in
Israel should dwell in the booths,
43 in order that your generations may know that it was in the booths that I made the sons of
Israel to dwell when I was bringing them from the land of Egypt. I am Jehovah your God (Leviticus23).

So the Passover occurs on the 14th day of the first month. Well that is Nisan if the calendar starts in Nisan and it is Tishri if the calendar starts in Tishri. Likewise Cakes occurs from the 15th day of the first month to the 21st. and Booths from the 15th day of the 7th month to the 22nd. But in 2008Tishri we have a month that is the 7th month under the old calendar and the first under the new calendar so we have the possibility of uniting the two festivals just in that year.

Please email your ideas on that.

2. Beware of false signs

The evidence about the start of the "Great Tribulation" on 2008September29/30 is based solely on the chronology and prophetic parallels of the Scriptures. It does not depend on other sources. Surely the "great tribulation" has begun with the collapse of the Anglo-American axis and the global financial system and will be extended gradually, without stopping, around the globe. This is a gradual change, but with a date fixed in advance.

Well, this month, Ethanim/Tishri will be remembered in the history of mankind as a month of big changes. We have seen the fall of the international financial system. These events will lead to a global restructuring with the "ten horns" of Revelation receiving power. They will then finally crush "Babylon the Great" and will make war with the Lord Jesus Christ.

We thus expect that major events could occur during the week of the Festival of Booths [or Tabernacles], which starts on Tishri15 and ends with the Solemn Assembly on Tishri22.

According to the Jewish lunar calendar we speak of the period commencing on 2008October13 after sundown, (about
noon EST)) and ending on 2008October21.

According to the idealized biblical lunar calendar with 30 days each month, we speak of the period starting on 2008October18 after sundown and ending on 2008October25.

The "Great Tribulation" is accompanied by false signs, trying to mislead true Christians. However, Jesus warned us:

23 “Then if anyone says to YOU, ‘Look! Here is the Christ,’ or, ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will give great signs and wonders so as to mislead, if possible, even the chosen ones. 25 Look! I have forewarned YOU. (Matthew24)

21 “Then, too, if anyone says to YOU, ‘See! Here is the Christ,’ ‘See! There he is,’ do not believe [it]. 22 For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will give signs and wonders to lead astray, if possible, the chosen ones. 23 YOU, then, watch out; I have told YOU all things beforehand. (Mark13)

For example Emmanuel and I have already heard rumours about supernatural things that could happen soon. Do not be seduced.

The demons have predicted a paranormal phenomenon on October13/14 exactly! Keep your eyes open and not be fooled. The truth is not in the theories of the New Age movement, nor in the messages from "Aliens".

Do not forget that if intelligent beings appear who want to direct the affairs of the world, it is with this goal:

13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs [a reptile!] come out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the wild beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 They are, in fact, spirits of demons and perform signs, and they go forth to the kings of the entire inhabited earth, to gather them together to the war of the great day of God the Almighty. (Revelation16)

Beware and do not be lead by these entities, who do not want mankind to turn to the Creator and his Messiah! Stick to the message of the Bible, the written inspired record of salvation.

3. The new site

We are implementing the new site at the moment. We have only published a few words yet but it is growing.

As you read through the main sections, we'll put links to expand to the different themes in separate pages, linked to the homepage.

For example if we talk about the chronological model of the sanctuary and I refer to Jesus in the temple, 2000 years before 2012, we will insert a link that says: [View details.] This will take you to another page where this information is analyzed carefully. This system will avoid redundancies.

Every time we make changes to articles we will notify you on the home page, and in the header of each page will be the date of the last amendment and a summary of the changes.

In the end all biblical analyzes and teachings will be on the new site and this blog will contain only some news or political comments.

As for the design of the site, I'm still doing tests, but they can visit it by clicking the lin
k below:

Michael & Emmanuel
