Title Summary Print View
WHY THE SOLAR AND GREGORIAN LEAP YEARS ARE OFFSET The Gregorian calendar was created to correct the errors of the Julian calendar, in use at that time. The Gregorian calendar was figured at the starting year of 1582 AD, resulting in its leap year being shifted by 2 years from the solar calendar. In the Gregorian system the leap year is not taken 3 times in 400 years, giving an adjustment every 133.3 years vs. the adjustment in the solar calendar of 128 years.
THE JULIAN CALENDAR FOR 30 AD

Which calendar is more accurate for 30 AD? Is it the Gregorian or the Julian?

Please consider the following example of a train station. In the station there is an old clock that no one bothers to clean.  As a result of not being cleaned it is losing time, and at this point it is five hours slow.

JOHN 2:20 – A PROOF SCRIPTURE

John 2:20 is a proof scripture for establishing Christ’s baptism, as well as the establishing the year of His crucifixion.

To make this determination it is necessary to know the length of His ministry, which is found in Dan. 9:27.

GOD’S CALENDAR PROVES THE BIBLE

The Bible is the most published, read and least understood book in the world.  The word “least” correctly defines man’s present perception of this most important book.  The words least understood means that of the millions of books written, there is not one that presents itself as more of a mystery. Hidden within its pages is the answer to why man exists and his astonishing future.

Genesis

The Bible is the most published, read, and least understood book in the world.  The word “least,” correctly defines man’s present perception of this most important book.  The words least understood mean that of the millions of books written there is not one book that presents more of a mystery.  Not a single book presents more of a mystery than the Bible.

THE RESTORATION OF JERUSALEM AND REBUILDING THE SECOND TEMPLE THROUGH EUNUCHS

In Matthew 19, verses 11 and 12, Christ addresses this subject. “But He said to them, ‘All cannot accept this saying, but only those to whom it has been given: For there are eunuchs who were born thus from their mother’s womb, and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven‘s sake.’”

Jeremiah's Seventy-Year Prophecies

The book of Jeremiah gives three dates to consider. In Jeremiah 1:2 we read, “to whom the word of the LORD came in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah, in the thirteenth year of his reign.”

Is There a Group Called "The Very Elect?"

Among the many groups that have come out of the WCG there are some who put an over emphasis on certain scriptures. Each group brings to light the niche scriptures they want to emphasize – an exclusiveness that will set them apart from all the other groups.

One scripture being used in this way is Matt. 24:24. “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; in so much that if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”

IS THE GOOD SAMARITAN A PARABLE?

NKJV in “bolded italics;” [Scripture words in brackets added by Bible translators].

[Underlining is my emphasis.]

In today’s society the news of the day revolves around a plethora of bribery, extortion, muggings, rapes and murders. While the news of a story about of a good deed is seldom reported the person involved would be called a Good Samaritan. This shows that there is a universal knowledge about a dramatic story that was used by Christ to make a point.

1335/1290/1260 Days Explained 3.5 Years—Time Period

Reading and understanding this information will open your eyes to the prophetic meaning of the important days revealed in the books of Daniel and Revelation. 

JACOB’S SOJOURN IN PADAN-ARAM

To determine the years that Jacob spent in Padan-Aram a time marker is needed; such as the birth and death dates of one of his sons.  That son is 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.

The Wave Sheaf

The importance of the Wave Sheaf Offering to the called out ones of the Father is more than significant. It is fundamental to our salvation.

GOD’S SACRED CALENDAR VS GREGORIAN YEAR

Understanding the difference between God’s sacred calendar year (the solar year,) and the Gregorian year (present day calendar,) is an important distinction for correctly tracking time. Both God’s sacred year and the solar year begin in the spring as God points out to Moses in Exodus 12:1-2. “Now the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying ‘This month shall be your beginning month; it shall be the first month of the year to you.’”

UNDERSTANDING THE PROPHET JONAH

The story of Jonah as portrayed in the Bible is looked on with a skeptical eye by most scholars of today. They think it is a collection of myths, put into a story that found its way into the Bible. Modern scholars are not the only ones to hold this belief.

Josephus, in his writing, expresses the same skepticism when making his concluding statement about the book of Jonah. “I have given this account of him as I have found it written.”  Josephus is saying that he cannot attest to the viability of the story; he just reports what is written.  

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).

Introduction to Biblical Time

INTRODUCTION TO BIBLICAL TIME

Scripture Verses are NKJV

1335_1290_1260 Explained

Until certain "events" take place for all to see, we are always at least 3.5 years away from the start of The Great Tribulation, which starts the countdown to the actual return of Jesus Christ. The Father is in charge of this as per Matthew 24:36 "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.”

The Ten Virgins and Christ’s Return

In Matthew 24:36 Christ makes an insightful statement, But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only 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.

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.

HOW DID GOD SET HIS CALENDAR?

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?

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.

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!

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 faulty logic is based on their belief that the first day of Tishri was the first day of creation (which it was not).
Man's Purpose

There is a biblically fixed system of time on which the historical events of the Bible can be brought to light.

Revealing the true timeline will put to rest all the innuendoes and false ideas so many have about the historic value of the Bible.  A foundation of truth must be laid. Ask yourself what does the Father and Christ want to accomplish through the act of creation?

Noah's Flood and God's Calendar

In light of the 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.

How Do We Know That Noah Counted The Months Starting 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.

WHY DID NOAH CURSE CANAAN FOR WHAT HAM DID?

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.

THE TIME OF JACOB’S TROUBLE

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. 

Was Isaac a Type of Christ?

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 Dedicated 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. What Dr. Bullinger was unable to pinpoint was how the dedication of the temple occurred in the Jubilee Year. Utilizing his timetable, but applying the following compilation of the passage of time of the Hebrew Calculated Calendar—year, month, and day, it correctly defines how and when the start of the count of the Jubilee Year was to be figured. Placing the Jubilee Year accurately, his work is proven correct biblically and calendrically.

The Destruction of Solomon's Temple Dated

At the end of the article, “Solomon's Temple Dedicated Dated 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. When studying the ascension of the kings of Israel and Judah it becomes clear that no absolute date could be established following this method—a method which many have unsuccessfully tried to do. For this reason, it was the prophecy of Daniel 9 and its connection to the coming Messiah that correctly reveals this date. Utilizing the Hebrew calendar to show how to accurately date this prophetic time period, the year, the monthly date, and the day of the week of the destruction of Solomon’s Temple will be revealed.

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.

HAS THE PASSOVER BEEN PASSED OVER?

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.

UNDERSTANDING LEAVEN

The past teachings have pictured leaven as being bad. This has resulted in an understanding that leaven equals sin. In I Corinthians 5:6-8 Paul equates leaven with malice and wickedness and by contrast unleavened with sincerity and truth. 6“Your glorying [is] not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? 7Therefore 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. 8Therefore let us keep the feast, not with 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.

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.

Who Are The 144,000?

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.

What is the Government of God? — The Church of God

What is the Government of God, or more to the point for us today, what constitutes the Government of God in the church, and how does it work?

Before these questions can be answered, an acknowledgement must be made as to what is the most central truth of God. What has man been created for? The answer to this question is tied to that most wonderful truth with which God has blessed His church, and the very answers to that great “why” lie therein. Why do we live? What is the purpose of our existence? All we see in this world is death as the end product of this life, which is what the academics of great educational systems teach. For them life is an accident with death as a consequence.

The Prophetic Days of Daniel 12:11-13

This article is not written to give an exact date in which the Messiah is to return to rule this world, but to delineate a series of events that have a distinct ending point in time; the starting date of which is unknown.

By doing so, this work will provide those who are watching a timetable of events that will allow them to know when a potential beginning of the count to this ending point would start. Clearly Christ tells us in Matthew 24:36 "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.” What day and hour is Christ referring to? This statement refers back to the sign of Verse 30. Sign is #4592, meaning “a portent transcending the common causes of nature and so terrorizing that the whole world will see and try to escape.”

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?”
PENTECOST—THE FORGOTTEN DAY! 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 man-designated days.
THE WAVE SHEAF OFFERING 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.

THE WORD "SIN" IS THE PENALTY

THE WORD “SIN” IS THE PENALTY

 

This word “sin” is misunderstood by many. The Old Testament and the New Testament scholars alike define it as “missing the mark.” Is it true that God forgives us for missing the mark? Is there any urgency felt by wanting to avoid sin with such an indecisive definition?

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.

John 5:22 Clarification of the word "Judgment"

Many times when reading a Bible scripture—God’s Word, a statement seems so clear and positive that there could be no further discussion as to its meaning. In a recent conversation it was pointed out that a basic tenant of the New Testament is that the Father was choosing the Bride of Christ; that it is the Father who determines who the bride is to be, and who will be invited as guests to the wedding. This makes the Father’s decision an eternal life and death judgment concerning those individuals.

Strong's Numbering System—Why?

From time to time, when reading articles about passages in the Bible, references are made to a number referring to a system known as Strong’s Numbering System—a system that puts a number on every translated word of the Bible. The exceptions are a few words that have been added by the translators which they felt were necessary to make the English more readable. These words are normally italicized.

God's Timeline of Man's 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 precise—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. Also used is God’s Sacred Calendar, (aka Hebrew Calculated Calendar). The third calendar used is the Gregorian with its designation of B.C. and A.D. years, coming from the present and reaching back to creation.

430 Years of Exodus & 400 Years of Genesis Clarified/Combined When studying biblical events, especially prophetic events that one should consider all of the scriptures pertaining to what happened over the span of time involved. By following this method of study God will reward one with understanding.

Solar Calendar Proves Biblical Sabbaths (A Proof Study Dating Biblical Sabbaths & Holy Days)

1 A PROOF STUDY DATING BIBLICAL SABBATHS AND HOLY DAYS In the fall of 2007 I was challenged by a group who set their observation of God’s high day Sabbaths by the sighting of the first visible crescent of the new moon, rather than the traditional days known as the Hebrew Calculated Calendar which is set by the Jewish authorities. These traditional Holy Days that I had been keeping for over 40 years were challenged as those not designated by God in his Word, but a counterfeit set of days. Could a factual proof be established for either of these beliefs?

How God Marks The Day

Scripture Verses Are NKJV

When does one day end and a new day begin? This seems like a relatively simple question.

Several weeks ago one of the brethren called to say he had received and studied some written material on when the day begins. He said that the NEW thinking is that a new day begins in the morning at dawn. This NEW understanding comes from Genesis 1:3 where God said, “Let there be light; and there was light.”
