Biblical Articles


Further your understanding and learn more about Biblical events, passages of times, and the meanings behind God’s Words, and how they correlate to the Biblical Calendar. Don Roth, a dedicated Biblical Researcher, has written thorough, extensive articles about Biblical events that play an important role in God’s Calendar, and in the meaning of life itself. His “Noah’s Flood and God’s Calendar” is a crucial article and source of information for better understanding of his Biblical Calendar Proof. “The Ten Virgins and Christ’s Return" is a very informative article referencing many parts of the Bible correlating with God’s plan and his ultimate power and control and giving reasons for the decisions He, and only He, will make. Read these articles to broaden your knowledge and understanding, and contact Don Roth with any questions or for more information.


Why Count the Days of Noah’s Flood?

New knowledge of this world comes to light every day.  This is also true about some of the technical aspects of the flood account which will be addressed here. The additional information does not change the original article, but gives more insight and clarification of this important bible account.

Most people have difficulty in understanding the bible.  A reason for this is that many times the bible gives concluding factual statements leaving the reader wondering what has gone before without the supporting information.

430 Years of Exodus & 400 Years of Genesis Clarified/Combined

Most certainly the Bible is a book of truth. This truth is only obtained by diligent study. II Tim. 2:15. “Be diligent to present yourselves approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

God's Timeline of Mans Walk On Earth

Through simple math this presentation will show by using the time elements God has put in His word that the Bible proves an exact accounting of time from creation to the present weekly cycle of seven days.  It will be exact – meaning that every day will be accounted for; not one day added or one missing.  This work will use three types of years.  AM (After Man) meaning the count begins at creation and comes forward in increments of seven to the present day.

Books of Joshua and Judges Dated

The key to determining the passage of time for these two Bible books is found in Judges 11:26. “While Israel dwelt in Heshbon and its villages, in Aroer and its villages, and in all the cities along the banks of the Arnon, for three hundred years, why did you not recover them within that time?”

The Ten Virgins and Christ’s Return

In Matthew 24 Christ makes an insightful statement, “But of that day and hour no one knows, no not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only” (vs. 36; NKJ referenced throughout, unless otherwise noted). This scripture has caused some to wonder, why is the timing of the return of Christ the prerogative of the Father? Why is it an unknown day, when the Father has total command of what ultimately occurs?

Noah and Moses Revealed God's Calendar

Noah and Moses both kept God's Calendar perfectly. Neither were in Jerusalem when doing so; and Noah could not even see the sky during the 11 moon-months he spent in the ark.

Has Time Been Lost?

Many have struggled to answer this very fascinating question, either in the positive or in the negative. The answer is important to various religious groups because their beliefs are based on the observation of a particular day of the week, the origin of which they find in the first book of the bible; the creation account of seven days in the book of Genesis.

Thus far all the material covering this subject has been academic. Herbert W. Armstrong gave a convincing argument in his 1952 booklet, Has Time Been Lost? In it he shows how the origin of time can be traced back to the creation week, but the part that he did not address was mathematical and calendrical proof which would have shown his work to be totally correct.

How Does God Mark Time?

This question is fundamental, and the answer is important! Knowing His system and its parts gives an unshakable confidence in His word, the Bible, a book which relates man’s history from the first breath to the present existence and beyond.

There is a provable system* which traces Biblical time and ties it to our present Gregorian calendar. It is an absolute proof of the Bible, so profound that it cannot be opposed. This is especially true if the core proof is based on the simple mathematical principal of the addition of seven, beginning with the creation week of seven literal days, and coming forward to today.


Ask yourself these questions. When did God create Adam and Eve? When did He destroy all living beings except those on the ark? When did these historical events take place? Is there an unbreakable mathematic principal that God used to establish time?

Errors that Nullify the Jewish Calendar

A criticism that is leveled against the Jewish system (Hebrew system) of setting the Passover date for any year requires that they look to the first of Tishri—Feast of Trumpets. They then figure backward to establish the Passover of that year. This logic appears faulty until one knows that their belief that the first day of Tishri was the first day of creation.

However this belief creates the insurmountable problem of not having the first day of the creation week beginning on a Sunday as explained by the following information.

360-Day Year Not Biblically Provable

Some teach that the cycle of the earth moving around the sun was originally 360 days, believing that as a result of the Noachian Flood God changed the length of the year to the present 365.242 day year. First, there is nothing biblically that can be pointed to support this belief. The 365 day year was in effect from the beginning of time. This is a provable fact!

Setting the Sacred Calendar

Ask yourself these questions.  When did God create Adam and Eve? When did He destroy all living beings except those on the ark?  God’s word contains many historical dates which take on a greater meaning when they are shown to reflect the creation week.  This article will explain how God tracks time and how He set His Sacred calendar for all mankind to understand.  His calendar is not determined by what is observed in the present skies. It was set at creation by the seven day week.

Man's Purpose

As shown in the previous presentation there is a biblically fixed system of time on which the historical events of the Bible can be brought to light.

Continuing to reveal the true timeline will put to rest all the innuendoes and false ideas so many have about the historic value of the Bible.  As we move away from the creation narrative discussed in the previous video, a foundation of truth must be laid. Ask yourself what does the Father and Christ want to accomplish through this act of creation?

Has God Appeared in Physical Form?

Does the bible ever show God in a human form walking and talking with man? Or, was He some shadowy voice as portrayed in the movies? The bible tells us that God both walked and talked among men many times. Because of this, an important question needs to be asked; why did God choose to walk and talk among man in the form of a man so that He appeared as a man?

Noah's Flood and God's Calendar

In light of recent unprecedented floods in the Midwestern United States, I decided to review the account of Noah’s Flood in Genesis 7 and 8. This study resulted in bringing to my attention the very detailed recording of the passage of time as the events of the Flood took place. These events are given to us as inspired by Christ, the Word, in a chronology of days and months through which God reveals a system for measuring time that parallels the present calculations of the Hebrew Calendar.

Did Noah Begin Counting the Months in the Fall?

There are two biblical facts showing the start of the year is in the spring. In Genesis 1:14-17, God gives the purpose of His heavenly orbs that were set to keep track of time. Verse 17 reveals that He set them in their starting positions, like setting a clock to the right time. Setting the heavenly clock accounted for the first day of creation, meaning that the sun and the moon would have to have the starting point to be the first day of the seven day week, (a Sunday).


This was a question posed by our minister to the congregation of which I was a relatively new member. He did not give us the answer; but wanted us to put in writing the solution to the problem. By doing this, he accomplished two things. First, and most important, was that when reading biblical accounts that seem unclear, we need to dig out the truth of the matter. Of course in order to do this, it required more in depth study on our part; which was what he was trying to get us to do. Secondly, he wanted us to see that God did not condemn the innocent. 


In order to understand the trouble Jacob encountered in his lifetime his life must be followed as he aged. Without a time marker this could not be accomplished.  Consider the dates of the birth and death of one of his sons, Joseph.

The bible does not directly record the year of Joseph’s birth, but it does reveal it through the use of several pertinent scriptures. These scriptures must be assembled in time order, and are as follows:  Genesis 41:46-47.  Joseph was 30 years old when he gave the Pharaoh the meaning of his dream at the beginning of the seven years of plenty. Genesis 47:9 relates that Jacob was 130 years old when he went to Egypt in the second year of the famine, making Joseph 30, plus seven years of plenty, plus 2 years of famine equals 39 years. This is Joseph’s age when his father came to Egypt. 


One of the most dramatic events of the Old Testament happened when God ordered Abraham to sacrifice his beloved son, Isaac. When reading this account it presents a problem. It may seem to be an isolated event in which only Abraham knew what his mission to the land of Moriah was going to be.

Solomon's Temple Dated On The Jubilee

This article takes the yearly progression of time as compiled by Dr. E.W. Bullinger through use of scriptures in the Old and New Testament, showing that the 480 years of I Kings 6:1 did not constitute an unbroken passage of time from the exodus to Solomon’s beginning of the temple. Bullinger’s writing in the Companion Bible clearly shows how this passage of time is to be calculated.

Destruction of Solomon's Temple, Dated

At the end of the article, SOLOMON'S TEMPLE DEDICATED ON THE JUBILEE, the concluding statement directs the reader to the need of establishing the year of the temple’s destruction. This would be the capstone that ties the Hebrew Calculated Calendar from the seven days of creation to the destruction of Solomon’s Temple, which in turn is tied to the crucifixion of Christ, proving the whole Bible is chained by God to this calendar. Obviously the beginning point would be the dedication of the temple and its’ use as the timeline of the kings of Judah and Israel to set the destruction date for Solomon’s Temple.

The Good Friday Myth

Today, millions of people and hundreds of church organizations teach and believe that Christ was crucified on a Friday and resurrected early Sunday morning. At one time, in my life, I also believed that; after all, the men (ministry) responsible for teaching the truth of God’s Word said it was so. But is this what your bible actually says? What is the truth?

Last Seven Days of the Life of Christ

To accurately account for the last seven days of Christ’s life it must be remembered that the biblical day begins at sunset, and not as the present Gregorian calendar day which starts at midnight.


The Passover is an important event in God’s calendar, and not to be taken lightly. Because there is a deep desire to follow the example set for us by Christ, we would want to structure our lives to bring the Father’s and Christ’s approval. This strong desire is what moves a true Christian to search out that way of life.


The past teachings have pictured leaven as being bad. This has resulted in an understanding that leaven equals sin. In I Cor. 5:6-8, Paul equates leaven with malice and wickedness and by contrast unleavened with sincerity and truth. “Your glorying is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed, Christ our Passover, was sacrificed for us. Therefore let us keep the feast, not with the old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.” Leaven here is put in a bad light.


There are few of the professing Christian churches that understand the significance of this important offering of the Old Testament, called the Wave Sheaf.  This writing will reveal the true importance to the New Testament church; those called of the Father, and will resolve the difficulties and misunderstanding of the first time the Wave Sheaf was carried out.


Unlike Christmas, Lent and Easter, which are all fabrications of man and not found in the Bible as days to observe, Pentecost is shown to be observed in both the Old and New Testaments. Many weeks are spent in preparation and anticipation of these man-made days, without a word in the Bible instructing this to be done. In addition there is no historical evidence of those originally called by God to a new life in Christ to observe these days. 

The Church of God - Where Is It?

Christ said, “I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.” Matt. 16:18. In our present age, the word “church” is difficult to biblically define. It is like many biblical terms which are translated from the Greek and can only be understood by the way they are used.

There are three important events regarding the return of Christ. The first is His appearing in Rev. 6:12-17, which has been pointed out on page 10, under the heading “Revealing the Father and the Son to the World.” This is followed by the seven trumpet plagues, culminating in the seventh trumpet, which are the Resurrection of the dead saints and the change of those living into spirit beings spoken of in I Cor. 15:52. This event and His return to the Mt. of Olives are a single happening. The third occasion follows the seven vial plagues, and is that great battle known as Armageddon.


The most mysterious book of the Bible is the Book of Revelation. In this book are two statements about 144,000 persons. Many have puzzled over who are those to be called in that number. All puzzling questions of the Bible are answered within its pages, including this one.

1335/1290/1260 Explained

The Great Tribulation consisting of 3.5 years is mentioned in Daniel 7:25, Daniel 12:7, and Revelation 12:14. The 1335 Days are quoted in Daniel 12:12. The 1290 are quoted in Daniel 12:11, and the 1260 in Revelation 11:2-3.
