Sighted Moon News Letter 5843-007 144
10th Day of the 2nd Month 5843 years after Creation
This is the 21st day of the Counting of the Omer
April 28, 2007
Shabbat Shalom Family,
I hope this Newsletter finds you all in good spirits as you study Yahweh’s word.
Each month I am constantly surprised at the amount of growth the web site is receiving. I started this web site the same week I was told I could no longer discuss biblical topics at church. That was in the last week of July 2006. Since then the number of new people continues to grow. In Aug. of 2006 we received 274 hits. In Sept. 1223 hits. During the feast it went down to Oct. 828. Back up in Nov. 1446, then Dec. 2441 followed by Jan. 2840 and Feb. 3187. It has not let up in Mar 3639 during Passover and now in April with yet three days to go I am once again shocked. My IT guy has asked what I have done to increase the number so drastically. He also says most of the articles are in the top ten of Googles search engines. Something he said would not happen for years.
This has happened as a result of Yahweh. It is His site. There is a great hunger amongst many out there as they search for the truth, in answering some of the questions that most organized groups do not address. Many of the subjects on this site well be in contradiction to one or more of many church doctrinal platforms. Because of this some things I say offend one group and other things I say offend another group. I most likely have offended you in your understanding of scriptures or at least challenged you to step up and prove what you thought to be true by using the scripture to do it. This is a good thing. Iron only sharpens Iron when it is rubbed in a frictional way. A sword in the sheath if not used will rust away.
Any way Family, I would like to again suggest and thank those who are already doing so, that you tell you church groups and friends about this site and have them sign up for the News letter and read some of the articles here to gain a better understanding of scripture.
I am not here to sell anything or profit off the flocks of my Father. I am here to do His will. Nothing less.
That number for April so far is going to be almost 8000 hits for this one month.
In our last letter we left off with the question, How do we know we are approaching the 120th Jubilee?
Another Question I have had, which came up again during this past Passover Season was when the Messiah told the thief that This day he would be with the Messiah in paradise.
Luke 23:42 Then he said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.”
And Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.”
This puzzled me because Yehshua also said in John 3:13 No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven.
If no man had ever gone to heaven then how could the thief go that same day, when Yehshua was not going to ascend to heaven until after he had been in the grave for three days and three nights? Did the thief go there before Yehshua did? I don’t think so.
I must now digress for this News Letter and address the length of time Yehshua was dead.
There are many who believe He was killed Good Friday and rose Easter Sunday from the grave. But can you seriously count three days and three nights from Friday after noon at 3 PM when Yahshua was killed until Sunday morning before is was day light when He was raised up. No matter how you count it, it always comes up two Nights and one day.
This is the only sign that Yehshua was the Messiah. That He would be in the grave just as Jonah was in the fish three days and three nights as it says in the book of Jonah. Read it for your self. The article The Sign of Jonah should be of great help.
But there might be some who will not agree with this article either. Lets then move on to another proof as to when the Messiah was killed. In the article The Glory of Yahweh and the Glory of Kings. I show how we can know which year is the year of His death by using the Moon. I show that the year could only be either 28CE or 31 CE using the sighted moon on a Tuesday evening giving us Passover on a Wed. day, 14 days later.
This information also shows you which moon is to be used. A conjunction or sighted.
Going back to this information I can show two other possible dates for the crucifixion on a Friday using a Conjunction Moon in the year 27 CE and 29 CE.
Firstly, we can show clearly that the Moon must be a sighted Moon and not a conjunction. Second the years 27 CE and 29 CE have never been used as the possible year of His execution. Those who hold to the Friday crucifixion must address these two points in hopes of validating Friday. That is, using a conjunction moon instead of a sighted one, and using these two years as the years of His death.
In the O.J. Simpson murder trial, his Lawyer, Mr. Cochran said “if it does not fit, you must acquit”, in referring to the glove that the murderer was wearing.
I say to you, if the Friday Crucifixion does not fit you must acquit.
Another proof as to which day He was killed on is in the Millennium week.
We read in 2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
It is with this knowledge that we understand the millennium week is seven thousand years long.
In Genesis 6:3 And the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” This 120 years can also be read 120 periods of time. 120 Jubilees.
If I am correct in saying that 120 Jubilees is 5880 years then we can divide 120 by 6 to get 20 Jubilee cycles. 5880 divided by 6 equals 980 years. Did Peter round up this 980 to a thousand? I can not say. If you will indulge me, please follow my line of thinking. I can not reconcile the difference between the 980 and 1000, except by rounding off the number. I admit this.
We read in Genesis 2:17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” And then in Genesis 5:4 After he begot Seth, the days of
Adam were eight hundred years; and he had sons and daughters. 5 So all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years; and he died.
So Adam only lived 930 years and died as Yahweh warned he would in the same day. I am claiming that day is a total of 980 years. Adam died at 930 years.
The second day would end in the year 1960 after creation. That is 980 plus 980 equals 1960 years. The story of Noah is during this second day. In the year 1656 after creation (AC). We can read of the births after the flood up to Abraham in Genesis 11:10
10 This is the genealogy of Shem: Shem was one hundred years old, and begot Arphaxad two years after the flood
12 Arphaxad lived thirty-five years, and begot Salah
14 Salah lived thirty years, and begot Eber
16 Eber lived thirty-four years, and begot Peleg
18 Peleg lived thirty years, and begot Reu
20 Reu lived thirty-two years, and begot Serug
22 Serug lived thirty years, and begot Nahor
24 Nahor lived twenty-nine years, and begot Terah
26 Now Terah lived seventy years, and begot Abram, Nahor, and Haran.
When we add these years up we come to 1953 AC. So we see that Abraham was born near the end of the second millennial day.
The end of third day would be 980 + 980 + 980 which is 2940 year AC It was at the beginning of this day that Abraham was given the promise, and it was at the end of this day that Solomon began the construction of the Temple.
Abraham born 1953 AC. He was told to leave Harran when he was 75. ( 2028 AC)
430 years later Israel left Egypt (2458) (Exodus 12:40)
It was 480 years after this that Solomon began the temple (2938 AC) ( 1 Kings 6:1)
We must make a special note here. In Lev 25:1 And the Lord spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai, saying, 2 “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘When you come into the land which I give you, then the land shall keep a Sabbath to the Lord. 3 Six years you shall sow your field, and six years you shall prune your vineyard, and gather its fruit; 4 but in the seventh year there shall be a Sabbath of solemn rest for the land, a Sabbath to the Lord.
In this scripture Yahweh is telling Moses that in the year they enter the land, the land shall have a Sabbath, and again when they enter the land that they shall begin to count out the Jubilee cycle of seven years. When they enter the land they are to start to count. This would be year one. Yahweh also says this is a Sabbath year. Or in fact a Jubilee year.
Is this right? Can it be so?
Lets add up what the scriptures tell us and find out.
As noted above Abraham was given the promise in 2028 AC. 430 years later Israel left Egypt. (2028 + 430 = 2458 AC)
In Numbers 1:1 Now the Lord spoke to Moses in the Wilderness of Sinai, in the tabernacle of meeting, on the first day of the second month, in the second year after they had come out of the land of Egypt, saying:
(2458 + 2 = 2460)
In Numbers 10: 11 Now it came to pass on the twentieth day of the second month, in the second year, that the cloud was taken up from above the tabernacle of the Testimony. 12 And the children of Israel set out from the Wilderness of Sinai on their journeys; then the cloud settled down in the Wilderness of Paran. 13 So they started out for the first time according to the command of the Lord by the hand of Moses.
Here again, it is the second year after they left Egypt and they went to Paran. And from Paran were sent the 12 spies for 40 days.
Number 13: 1 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 “Send men to spy out the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel; from each tribe of their fathers you shall send a man, every one a leader among them.” 3 So Moses sent them from the Wilderness of Paran according to the command of the Lord, all of them men who were heads of the children of Israel.
But Israel brought back an evil account and Yahweh sentenced them to wander for 40 years in the wilderness. Numbers 14:33 And your sons shall be shepherds in the wilderness forty years, and bear the brunt of your infidelity, until your carcasses are consumed in the wilderness. 34 According to the number of the days in which you spied out the land, forty days, for each day you shall bear your guilt one year, namely forty years, and you shall know My rejection.
It was on this very day, the Ninth of Av that Israel received this sentence to wander for 40 years. It was also on this very same day that the Temple Of Solomon and the Temple of Herod was destroyed.
Again back to our addition of years we have 2460 + 40 for a total of 2500 (AC). This was the year that Joshua entered the Promised land. If you recall in the explanation of how to count the Jubilee years as shown you in Sighted Moon Newsletter 5843-005, you can start at the beginning of creation and add by 49 + 49 + 49 until you get a total of 2499 AC. This 2499 after creation as the 49th year of the Jubilee cycle. The 50th year would be the next year and also it would be the first year of the next count to seven. This is the year 2500 AC!!!!!
Once again our method of reckoning the Jubilee and scriptures are all in total agreement. The glove fits!
We stated before that the year King Solomon began the Temple was in 2938 AC ( 1 Kings 6:1) . In verse 38 we read that Solomon finished the Temple in all itâ€™s details after seven years. In 1 Kings 8:1 we read how the Temple was dedicated in the 8th year after construction began in the seventh month . This is of interest on two accounts. One is found in the Eighth Day article which shows how the 7 days are for cleansing and the eighth day is for Dedicating. The Temple also represents Yahshua. His birth, then 8 days later He was circumcised, (dedicated).
2938 was the end of the third day and the beginning of the fourth day. The temple was dedicated at the beginning of the fourth day which was 2940 AC. 2938 +8 = 2946 for the year of dedication.
980 + 980 + 980 + 980 = 3920 AC is the end of the fourth day. On this fourth day the Temple was finished and by the end of this fourth day the Temple would be destroyed. Why is this happening on the fourth day?
Daniel 9:26 “And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; And the people of the prince who is to come Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, And till the end of the war desolations are determined. 27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, Even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate.”
We are told that in the MIDDLE of the Week He, notice it is referring to the Messiah. That He would bring an end to sacrifice in the middle of the week. The Fourth Day.
The fourth day is also Wednesday. Does this sound like a Friday Crucifixion?
In Matt. 26:61 and said, “This fellow said, ‘I am able to destroy the temple of God and to build it in three days.’ ” This false witness is referring to Matt 12:38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered, saying, “Teacher, we want to see a sign from You.” 39 But He answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
When you go to Jonah 1:17 Now the Lord had prepared a great fish to swallow Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.
You can clearly see that the sign of Jonah was that he was in the fish three days and three nights. Not two nights and one day which is what a Friday Crucifixion gives you.
We must now figure out where we are according to the Gregorian calendar we now use in relationship to the After Creation years we have been working with.
As shown you in News Letter 5843-005 Yahweh Himself told Hezekiah, in the very year Sennacherib attacked Jerusalem that this year was a 49th year land rest. It was year 701 BC. And is documented in stone in Babylon and Egypt with references to Assyrian stone inscriptions as well.
When you lay out all the Jubilee years so that they are 120 in total from this date, in both directions. You then must lay out along side all the known dates of the Gregorian and Julian calendar which only go back in time accurately to this time of in Israel. Most chronologist admit that there is much controversy figuring out what happened, the further back in time we go, before 701 BC.
When we now lay out the known years as described in the Bible and bring them forward we are very close to a match up. This is explained in more detail in the times Up Article. Could I be out by one Jubilee cycle. Yes. I am of the opinion that I am not and this is why I am explaining this subject to you in these News Letters.
In the book by Ernest L. Martin, The Star that Astonished the World, he shows you with out a doubt that the Messiah was born in 3 BC. Sept. 11. 1st of Tishri the 1st day of the seventh month.
Michael Rood in his 70 Week prophecy shows that the Messiah died in 28 CE. This just so happened to be a Sabbatical year. Or as Yahshua said when He read the scroll of Isaiah 61:2 in Luke 4:18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; 19 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.” 20 Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. 21 And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”
I have recently read that the temple was destroyed in 68 CE as compared to 70 CE. I must do more research on this before I state a definite year.
Lets get back to the Millennial week.
980 + 980 + 980 = 2940 as the end of the third day and the start of the fourth day which will end after another 980 years or in 3920 AC.
We have shown in the Times Up article that 701 BC (Before Christ) matches 3136 AC ( After Creation of Adam). When you calculate this all forward to 28 CE (Common Era), it matches up with 3864 AC. 40 years later when the Temple is destroyed is 68 CE or 3804 CE. We have shown you how the Temple is also representative of Yahshua. Both would be destroyed on the fourth day, as told in Daniel.
Just as the Messiah died just before the Sabbath began. So the Temple was destroyed just before the fifth day was to start.
This all fits in the fourth day as the this day does not end until 3920 AC or 84 CE.
If I have made this too complicated please write me for clarification.
Now the Fifth day begins 3920 AC and goes to 4900 AC which is from 84 CE to 1064 CE.
The sixth day is from 4900 AC to 5880 AC which is from 1064 CE to 2044 CE. We are currently at 2007 CE.
The Millennium is to start in the year 5880 AC or 2044 CE. This means that all those end time prophecies are to happen in the next few years leading up to 2044. Think about this.
Again using the Death and resurrection of the Messiah during the Passover season. He Died on the Fourth day and was raised from the grave just before the Sabbath ended on the seventh day. Three days and three nights. Read the article The Sign of Jonah
I must thank Yosef Ben Ruach of Nazarene Israel for challenging me on this Millennium issue. For I had supposed the Messiah was to return at the beginning of the Millennium. Clearly all the evidences proves He will return at the end of the seventh millennial day, just the same as He rose from the grave at the end of the weekly seventh day.
The earth will have a thousand years of rest from Satan who will be locked away. He is also to be let lose for a short time at the end of that thousand years. I will stop here as this looks like a very big study on itâ€™s own. And I have not yet addressed the Thief on the tree. I will do this in our next News Letter and also show you how you can know which day is the seventh day, which should also dispel some other myths.
Shalom and thank you for your help and prayers and encouragement.
