New Years Day-Father Time

Joseph F. Dumond

Isa 6:9-12 And He said, Go, and tell this people, You hear indeed, but do not understand; and seeing you see, but do not know. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn back, and be healed. Then I said, Lord, how long? And He answered, Until the cities are wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land laid waste, a desolation, and until Jehovah has moved men far away, and the desolation in the midst of the land is great.

Shabbat Shalom Brethren of the Royal House of Yehovah,

“New Years Day Where does it come from?”

And he shall seek to change times and laws

Dan 7:25 And he shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and plot to change times and laws. And they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and one-half time.

New Years. Where did this notion come from? How is it tied into Christmas? Why do we do this celebration and not know anything about it?

It all started after 2181 B.C. That was the year of the Great Flood of Noah. I am not going to get to the exact year, but it would be one or two generations after the flood that we get this New Year celebration from. Let me now explain that.

Noah had three sons.

Gen 5:32 And Noah was five hundred years old. And Noah fathered Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

Two Years after the Flood Shem had Arpachshad.

 Gen 11:10 These are the generations of Shem. Shem was a hundred years old and fathered Arpachshad two years after the flood.

Also after the flood Ham had the following sons.

Gen 10:6 And the sons of Ham: Cush and Mizraim and Phut and Canaan. 7 And the sons of Cush: Seba and Havilah and Sabtah and Raamah and Sabtecha. And the sons of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan. 8 And Cush fathered Nimrod. He began to be a mighty one in the earth. 9 He was a mighty hunter before Jehovah. Therefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before Jehovah.

Everything seems to be going okay. These sons would have come along and then grown up to then have their own sons. I am speculating that all of this took place within 100 years after the flood. So, say by 2081 B.C. Again, I am just guessing approximately when these things took place.

But now the narration goes back to explain something. It specifically mentions Canaan and that Ham is his father. Why does it do this?

In Chapter 10 we have Canaan being the 4th child after Cush, Mizraim and Phut. Now read what we are told in Genesis 9.

Gen 9:18 And the sons of Noah that went out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. And Ham is the father of Canaan. 19 These are the three sons of Noah, and the whole earth was overspread from them. 20 And Noah began to be a husbandman. And he planted a vineyard. 21 And he drank of the wine and was drunk. And he was uncovered inside his tent. 22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside. 23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment and laid it upon both their shoulders. And they went backwards and covered the nakedness of their father. And their faces were backwards, and they did not see their father’s nakedness. 24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and came to know what his younger son had done to him. 25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan. He shall be a servant of servants to his brothers. 26 And he said, Blessed be Jehovah, the God of Shem, and Canaan shall be his servant.

In verse 21 we read that Noah was uncovered and then in verse 24 that Ham had done this to Noah. To understand what is going on here we must look at this word and where it is used to get the meaning behind the scene.

Of this list above are the following verses which are relevant.

Lev 18:6 None of you shall approach to any who are near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness. I am Jehovah. 7 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father or the nakedness of your mother. She is your mother; you shall not uncover her nakedness. 8 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father’s wife. It is your father’s nakedness. 9 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your sister, the daughter of your father or the daughter of your mother, born at home or born away. Their nakedness you shall not uncover. 10 The nakedness of your son’s daughter, or of your daughter’s daughter, you shall not uncover their nakedness. For theirs is your own nakedness. 11 You shall not uncover the nakedness of the daughter of your father’s wife, begotten of your father. She is your sister. 12 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father’s sister. She is your father’s near kinswoman. 13 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your mother’s sister. For she is your mother’s near kinswoman. 14 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father’s brother. You shall not approach his wife. She is your aunt. 15 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your daughter-in-law. She is your son’s wife. You shall not uncover her nakedness. 16 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your brother’s wife. It is your brother’s nakedness. 17 You shall not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter, neither shall you undertake to uncover her son’s daughter, or her daughter’s daughter. They are her near kinswomen; it is wickedness. 18 And you shall not take a wife to her sister, to vex her, to uncover her nakedness, beside the other in her life. 19 Also you shall not approach to a woman to uncover her nakedness in the impurity of her uncleanness. 20 And you shall not lie carnally with your neighbor’s wife, to defile yourself with her.

Lev 20:11 And the man who lies with his father’s wife has uncovered his father’s nakedness. Both of them shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be on them.

Lev 20:17 And if a man shall take his sister, his father’s daughter, or his mother’s daughter, and see her nakedness, and she see his nakedness, it is a wicked thing. And they shall be cut off in the sight of their people. He has uncovered his sister’s nakedness; he shall bear his iniquity. 18 And if a man shall lie with a menstruous woman, and shall uncover her nakedness, he has discovered her fountain, and she has uncovered the fountain of her blood. And both of them shall be cut off from among their people. 19 And you shall not uncover the nakedness of your mother’s sister, nor of your father’s sister. For he uncovers his near kin. They shall bear their iniquity. 20 And if a man shall lie with his uncle’s wife, he has uncovered his uncle’s nakedness. They shall bear their sin. They shall die childless. 21 And if a man shall take his brother’s wife, it is an unclean thing. He has uncovered his brother’s nakedness; they shall be childless. 22 You shall therefore keep all My statutes and all My judgments, and do them, so that the land where I bring you to live shall not spit you out. 23 And you shall not walk in the ways of the nation which I cast out before you. For they committed all these things, and therefore I loathed them.

So each time a man goes into a woman he is in fact uncovering her pudendum

Now lets look at the word 6168 Arah. The passages we are interested in are already quoted above but I share where this word is used and how it was translated also.

H6168     arah   aw-raw’

A primitive root; to be (causatively make) bare; hence to empty, pour out, demolish: – leave destitute, discover, empty, make naked, pour (out), rase, spread self, uncover.

One of the things I also do to see if there are other words to help me understand is to go to each of the words between 6168 and 6172 and see what they mean. You can do the same.

From all of this we have or I have concluded that Ham went into his mother, the wife of Noah and had sex with her. As a result she gave birth to Canaan.

Gen 9:21 And he drank of the wine and was drunk. And he was uncovered inside his tent. 22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside.

Lev 18:7 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father or the nakedness of your mother. She is your mother; you shall not uncover her nakedness.

Lev 18:8 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father’s wife. It is your father’s nakedness.

It is for this reason, of Noah’s wife the mother of Shem, Japheth and Ham, being pregnant with the child of Ham that Noah cursed the child Canaan, a bastard child. And for this same reason, Noah never had any more children. And also for this same reason, we are never told the name of Noah’s wife.

Deu 27:20  Cursed is he who lies with his father’s wife, because he uncovers his father’s skirt. And all the people shall say, Amen.

Keep in mind in all that we are now discussing that we are talking about New Years celebrations and Father time.

In Deuteronomy we have a couple more verses to add to those we already have mentioned above. These will have more weight in a few moments.

Deu 23:1 He who is wounded, crushed, or who has his male member cut off, shall not enter into the congregation of Jehovah.

Deu 23:2 A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of Jehovah. Even to his tenth generation he shall not enter into the congregation of Jehovah.

The Phallus is the male Penis and is represented in Phallic architecture as such all the way back to ancient Egypt and Babylon. Even the Washington Monument represents the male phallus. It is the symbol of strength and vigour. It represents power.

I am showing you these things in order that you might understand the whole story.


Ouranos in ancient mythology was Ham


Chronus or Kronos in ancient mythology is known to be Cush.


When Ouranos AKA Ham went into his mother, Ham was, in fact, usurping the authority of his father Noah.

In legends, Noah is said to have taken the animals from the Ark and spread them around the world. This would necessitate his being gone for long periods of time giving Ham the opportunity to usurp authority.

What Ham was doing was usurping the power and authority that belonged to Noah by “uncovering” his mother and at the same time “uncovering” Noah. It is this very same thing, which Absalom did when he was attempting to usurp his father King David.

20 And Abshalom said to Ahithophel, “Give your advice. What should we do?” 21 An Ahithophel said to Ab?shalom, “Go in to your father’s concubines, whom he has left to look after the house. And all Yisra’el shall hear that you have made yourself a stench to your father. And the hands of all who are with you shall be strong.” 22 So they pitched a tent for Abshalom on the top of the house, and Abshalom went in to his father’s concubines before the eyes of all Yisra’el. (2 Samuel 16:20-22)

We also have another example of usurping the Throne found in 1 Kings. Adonijah was older than Solomon and was to have been King but Yehovah gave it to Solomon. By Adonijah asking to be wed to King Davids concubine Abishag, he was, in fact, usurping the throne of Solomon and Solomon the wisest King ever, saw right through it.

1Ki 1:1  And King David was old, going on in days. And they covered him with clothes, but he got no heat. 2  And his servants said to him, Let there be sought for my lord the king a young virgin. And let her stand before the king, and let her nurse him, and let her lie in your bosom, so that my lord the king may get heat. 3  And they sought out a beautiful girl throughout all the borders of Israel, and found Abishag, a Shunammite. And they brought her to the king. 4  And the girl was very beautiful. And she nursed the king and served him. But the king did not know her.

1Ki 2:13  And Adonijah the son of Haggith came to Bathsheba the mother of Solomon. And she said, Do you come peacefully? And he said, Peace. 14  And he said, I have a word to say to you. And she said, Speak. 15  And he said, You know that the kingdom was mine, and that all Israel set their faces on me that I should reign. However, the kingdom is turned around, and has become my brother’s. For it was his from Jehovah. 16  And now I ask one favor of you; do not turn away your face. And she said to him, Speak. 17  And he said, Please speak to Solomon the king, for he will not turn away your face, that he give me Abishag the Shunammite for my wife. 18  And Bathsheba said, Very well; I will speak for you to the king. 19  And Bathsheba came in to King Solomon to speak to him for Adonijah. And the king rose up to meet her, and bowed himself to her, and sat on his throne, and caused a throne to be set for the king’s mother. And she sat on his right hand. 20  And she said, I desire one small favor of you. Do not turn away my face. And the king said to her, Ask on, my mother, for I will not turn away your face. 21  And she said, Let Abishag the Shunammite be given to your brother Adonijah for a wife. 22  And King Solomon answered and said to his mother, And why do you ask Abishag the Shunammite for Adonijah? Ask the kingdom also for him. For he is my older brother! Even for him, and for Abiathar the priest, and for Joab the son of Zeruiah! 23  And King Solomon swore by Jehovah, saying, May God do so to me, and more He shall do, if Adonijah has not spoken this word against his life. 24  And now, as Jehovah lives, who has established me and set me on the throne of David my father, and who has made me a house, as He spoke, Adonijah shall be put to death today. 25  And King Solomon sent by the hand of Benaiah the son of Jehoiada. And he fell on him so that he died.

Noah’s wife is the one who is the “Mother of all Living,” she is the one who came out of the chaos of the Flood and landed near the Euphrates. Actually, the myth says she came out of a giant shell on the shore of the Euphrates. This is, in fact, Noah’s wife coming out the ark which looked like a giant shell. Another name for her is Aphrodite.

Noah’s wife is also known as goddess Tyche as I have found her here in the Israeli Museum. She wears a castle wall because she is the one who invented the brick. And it was this invention that led to the building of the tower of Babel.

Her name is Semiramis. She was known to the Greeks and to the Romans as the goddess:

  • Of love by the name Aphrodite & Venus.
  • Of hunting & birth as Artemis & Diana
  • Of crafts, war & wisdom as Athena & Minerva
  • Of growing things as Demeter & Ceres
  • Of fertile Earth as Gaea & Terra
  • Of Marriage & Women as Hera & Juno
  • Of the hearth as Hestia & Vesta
  • As Wife of Kronos Rhea & Ops
  • Today her statutes consist of the Mother and Child, as the “Mother of God,” and as the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Ouranos (Ham) was the first ruler of the universe, created by Gaea (Noah’s wife and mother of Ham) when she emerged from Chaos. (the Great Flood) Ouranos, with

Gaea, became the father of the Titans.

Ham, the third son of Noah, was the father of Cush, and his name comes from the Chaldean “khem,” which means the “burnt one” or the “burning one” and is in reference, not only to Ham as the son of Noah, the father of Cush, but also as the name of their Sun-god.

From Pompei, we have this image of Mercury the messenger of the gods. It is Cush the burnt one strutting his Penus signifying his power. This too is from where we get the giant symbols of the Phallus from. Once again take note of the battle ax also known as the hammer. We explained the hammer of Vulcan which is Cush in our series on Assyria. Mercury is also a lover of Venus when he is known as Vulcan.

This means that Cush the grandson of Noah’s wife was also having sex with her.

Cush is derived from the Hebrew “kvsh” and is Chaldean in origin. It comes from the word “khus,” which in pronunciation is “kha wos.” It is where we get the word chaos. This was the name of the first father of the gods, “Khaos,” the Confounder, he who caused the confusion of tongues and scattered the inhabitants of the once united Earth abroad. Under the name Belus, which is another Chaldean word meaning “the Confounder,” he is said to be the father of Ninus, the first king of Babylon.

Perhaps in resentment for the harshness God had shown towards his father when He cursed Ham’s youngest son Canaan, perhaps in sympathy for his youngest brother, or perhaps in the same corrupt desire to be like God that Satan had, by the time his son Nimrod was born, Cush had developed a plan by which the suffocating religion of his righteous uncle could be replaced by his own.

Nimrod was the great-grandson of Noah and a contemporary with Eber, the great-grandson of Shem. Nimrod comes from the Chaldean words “nimr”: leopard, and “rad”: to subdue. Nimrod was famous for his exploits as a mighty hunter. Most Hebrew names in the Bible are based on puns and the name Nimrod is very similar in pronunciation to a compound Hebrew word, “niyn”: progeny and “marad”: be rebellious, rebel. The word carries with it the meaning of breaking covenant with someone, whether man or God. So, Nimrod the Mighty Hunter (the Hunter of Men’s Souls) becomes Nimrod the Rebellious One, or the Son of Rebellion. Cush would carefully nurture his Son of Rebellion in this new religion, and thereby rule the world through him. Cush, declaring himself a prophet of “the Only One,” and assuming the name Hermes, became the interpreter of the gods. Hermes is a compound word created from the Egyptian “her,” which in Chaldean means the “burnt one,” therefore it is synonymous with Ham. This is also the derivative from which the name Horus originates and connects him with both the Babylonian and Egyptian Sun-god. The second half of the word Hermes comes from the word “Mesheh,” (Moses) which means to draw forth, to extract, to give birth. Therefore, Hermes means the child of Ham, or the son of Ham. This can be seen in the Pharaoh names Rameses and Thothmes which mean “son of Ra” and “son of Thoth.”

In direct violation to the Commandments of God, Cush persuaded the people to establish one place where they could all dwell together to worship their god, and there to build a great tower to better observe the messages of their god written in the stars.

Kronos is also known in history as Father Time.  And the New Year baby is none other than Nimrod who usurped Cush as we are told in mythology. Over a period of centuries, Nimrod would also come to be known as Kronos in Greek mythology.

But also in Greek Mythology, you will find that Ouranos was known as Uranus. He was the first son of Gaia (the Earth) and he also became her husband.

Ouranos was the first ruler of the universe, created by Gaea when she emerged from Chaos. Ouranos, with Gaea, became the father of the Titans, the Cyclopes and the Hecatoncheires (hundred-handed ones).

Ouranos, Ham, usurped the authority of Noah by going into his mother. Over time Ouranos and Cush would go to war. Cush was not going to take authority from Ham and become the supreme leader of the Titans.

Ouranos was afraid that some of his children would rebel against him, so he imprisoned them within Gaea’s Earth womb. Kronos, the youngest of the Titans, freed his siblings by castrating his father. Ouranos’ blood gave birth to the Furies, and Aphrodite was born of the discarded member when it fell into the foaming sea.

In this painting, we have Ouranos also known as Uranus being castrated by Saturn was also known as Kronos. Notice the sickle being used. Remember how the male penis is a symbol of power and authority. Cush, Kronus has just removed the power and authority from Ham his father. He has also taken Hams wife, who was Noah’s wife and usurped his authority by going into her. Mercury with Venus now.

Notice the terminology here, as this is important to understand. Ouranos, also known as Uranos and also known as Ham, married his mother and had children. Gaia was the mother of Ham known as Ouranos and was also his wife. Yet this woman Gaia was said to be “the Mother of All Living.” Think about that. Who exactly, is “the Mother of All Living?”

“The Mother of All Living” is Noah’s wife. Gaea is the creator of Ouranos (the Ruler of the Universe) and this Gaea emerged from chaos. The chaos was the Flood and Gaea is “the Mother of All Living.” In other words, the only one to emerge from the chaos of the Flood and come forth as the mother of all that was alive and all to come thereafter was Noah’s wife. Then, the Earth (Gaea) and the light (Ouranos) become both father and mother.

This leader of the Titan, Ouranos Ham, warred with his son Cush, also known as Saturn and Kronos, who defeated Ham and castrated him and took authority removing the phallus symbol of power.

You all know Cush is the father of Nimrod.

So when you see the picture to the right, you should recognize the people in it by the symbols they carry.

Kronos is where we get our modern word Chronology from.

Kronos is also known as Saturn and it is during this time of year known as the “Saturnalia” that the world commemorates his memory in the keeping of Christmas.

Here is what wikipedia says about Kronos with my notes.

Chronos (Greek: , “time,” also transliterated as Khronos or Latinised as Chronus) is the Personification of Time.


Chronos is a god, serpentine shape in form, with three heads—those of a man, a bull, and a lion. Chronos and his daughter and consort called, serpentine Ananke (Inevitability), circled the primal world egg in their coils and split it apart to form the ordered universe of earth, sea and sky.

(Each of the three heads represents the three boys of Noah. Ham, Japheth, and Shem who came out of the ark which is represented as a giant egg because of its shape. The bull would represent the governing system set up by Ham. The Lion the system set up by Shem and the man the system set up by Japheth.)

Chronos was confused with, or perhaps consciously identified with, due to the similarity in name, the Titan Cronus already in antiquity, the identification becoming more widespread during the Renaissance, giving rise to the allegory of “Father Time” wielding the harvesting scythe.

Chronos is usually portrayed through an old, wise man with a long, grey beard, similar to Father Time. Some of the current English words whose etymological root is khronos/chronos include chronology, chronometer, chronic, anachronism and chronicle.

It is in celebration of the Saturnalia that they used to pass their children through the fire to Molech which we talked to you about a few weeks ago. The children were murdered in worship to Saturn, to Molech which as we have shown you was also known as Kronos, the Father of time. Kronos is also known as the Grim Reaper when your time is up.


This year and each year that you go out to celebrate and welcome the coming of the New Year and bid farewell to the old year, you are upholding a tradition that goes back about 4,000 years to the usurping of authority first from Noah to Ham by Ham having sex with Noah’s wife and Hams mother. You are celebrating the castration of Ham by Cush and the end of the war they had with each other and Cush taking the authority to rule from Ham. You are celebrating the end of Cush’s reign and the beginning of Nimrod’s reign over men. Nimrod was, after all, a hunter of men.

Your bible tells you when the year begins. I know you already know this, but let me just share this last little bit before I close.

This week we are about to watch the entire world say goodbye to the old year, and get drunk and drive, and let loose of any inhibitions. But in case some of you did not know Yehovah himself tells us when the New Year is.

Exodus 12: 1 And Yehovah spoke to Mosheh and to Aharon in the land of Mitsrayim, saying, 2 “This month is the beginning of months for you, it is the first month of the year for you. 3 “Speak to all the congregation of Yisra’l, saying, ‘On the tenth day of this month each one of them is to take for himself a lamb, according to the house of his father, a lamb for a household. 4 ‘And if the household is too small for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next to his house take it according to the number of the beings, according to each man’s need you make your count for the lamb. 5 ‘Let the lamb be a perfect one, a year old male. Take it from the sheep or from the goats. 6 ‘And you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month. Then all the assembly of the congregation of Yisra’el shall kill it between the evenings. 7 ‘And they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel of the houses where they eat it. 8 ‘And they shall eat the flesh on that night, roasted in fire – with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.

The New Year begins the exact same month that Passover is. You have just read it and yet much of the world is keeping it now. Some will try to tell you that the New Year is in the fall at the Feast of Trumpets which is on the first day of the Seventh month.

Okay, for those of you who are mathematically challenged, please go and get a three-year-old girl. I want you to ask her if the first month is number one or not. Then I want you to ask her what number is the Seventh Month? Is the Seventh Month the first month? Huh???? The three-year-old will give you to the truth, even though many adults will still try to lie and justify all the screwed up behaviour they do, in order to justify them not having to change and conform to the Torah!

The Month of December is Latin for the 10th month. November is Latin for the 9th month, October is Latin for the 8th month, and September is Latin for the 7th month. So January used to be the 11th month and February used to be the 12th month. These very Latin names still preserve which months are which at least during these months mentioned. The Bible also calls them the 7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th months. There is sometimes a 13th month depending on special situations, but this would make the first month in March or April depending on whether or not there is a 13th month. This is when Passover is just as we are told in Exodus.

The year used to begin on special dates during the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire known as the consular year, which began on the day when consuls first entered office — probably 1 May before 222 BC, 15 March from 222 BC to 154 BC, but this event was moved to 1 January in 153 BC. In 45 BC, Julius Caesar introduced the Julian calendar, continuing to use 1 January as the first day of the new year.

Yehovah says the first month is when Passover is in the spring. So then what is the whole world celebrating now? They celebrating the corrupt events that both Ham and Cush created through their warring actions with each other and then with Noah’s wife. Are you going to be a part of this chaos?

    Perhaps there is an error. Is a bastard a mamzer? …..There seems there may be a difference.
    The curse is specifically on the inter familiar relations that break prohibitions that though not listed prior to Leviticus as far as I am aware; seem to be known, just like clean and unclean animals for the ark were an understood categorisation of animals.

    In the case of interfamily boundary crossing …..

    Some shall remain barren if they marry an uncle or aunt etc
    But a mamzer child is a spiritual abomination seemingly of going up onto the parental bed with intent to usurp authority. ( God’s authority in lineage purity perhaps too)

    Jepthah the son of prostitution was not cursed.
    Solomon presided over a case of prostitutes fighting over the surviving bastard son & there seems no implied curse to the child…rathercthe opposite as his life is valued.

    Nor were Judah’s sons from Tamar cursed though 2 of his sons to his wife died at God’s hand & one for sexual misconduct Onan for spilling seed & failing his Yibbum duties to provide an heir for his deceased brother.
    ( I can’t recall if Judah’s wife was still alive but no other sons seemed to be born in the record to her apart from the 3.)
    Judah’s sons through Tamar were the produce of a form of levirate bloodline continuance done in faith by Tamar & under the understanding of payment for sex on Judah’s part & absolutely no comprehension on whom he was having sexual relations with either..other than a woman prostituting her body.
    The plan of Salvation continued whereas the situation with Ham etc was to reject that Salvation plan entirely & act extensively against it.
    Any thoughts
    Shalom to All.
