So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts to wisdom. Ps 90:12
The Ancient Hebrew Calendar was divided into Lunar Months based on the phase of the
Moon. A New Moon and beginning of a new month began with the first crescent of light.
But the Hebrew new year's day and the first month of the year, Nisan, were further
controlled by the embedded nature of a plant known in science as Hordeum Spontaneum
and its domesticated version Hordeum Vulgare.
From Creation to Christ the Creator, the Bible records a very exact history. Counting
these days is not an easy task but it has been done using a literal interpretation.The
results of this point to a very recent beginning for the Universe as compared to the
Theory of Evolution. But how can this be reconciled with the supposed billions of years
of earth and universe history?
Solving Daniel's 70 weeks of years has been the subject of interest for almost two
millennium. A new attempt has returned to a straight forward literal interpretation.
Amazingly, the vast span of 483 years lands precisely (to the very day) on Nisan 10,
30 AD, the very day a carpenter from Nazareth rode a donkey triumphantly into
Jerusalem to the shouts and cheers of the Jewish inhabitants. Once this prophecy is
properly understood it links to other prophecies and ancient historical accounts.
The Jewish "Feasts of the Lord" are not just memorials of the past but they were also
prophecies of the future. These prophecies are not ordinary prophecies. In each case
they are prophecies of events involving the Collision of Humans with God Himself. The
precise days of these feasts in the various Hebrew lunar months were locked in place
thousands of years ago and documented in Leviticus 23. The new testament is clear that
in the case of 4 of the feasts the prophetic fulfillment occurs on the very day of the
feast. Two of the feasts, Trumpets and Day of Atonment, are yet future.
Enjoy, ponder, and learn to number our days after the manner of Biblical Instruction.
