God’s calendar or man’s?
God’s New Year; are we going to keep God’s calendar or man’s?
Exodus 12:2 ,”This month shall be unto you the beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you.” In this verse, God established the biblical New Year. Accordingly, the 1st of Av is the proper Jewish New Year. In 2013, it will be the13th of March and Passover will be on the 25th of March.
Before the Exodus, the New Year was around September. God changed the New Year to spring, and the Rabbis have changed it back to September.
According to the New Calendar God established in Exodus, Noah’s ark rested on the Earth the very day Yeshua rose from the dead.
Gen 8: 4 “Then the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month…” When God changed the Calendar in Exodus, the 7th month became the 1st month. Yeshua was crucified on the 14th day and rose on the 17th.
The Essene sect wrote the Dead Sea scrolls, and thus preserved for us the oldest written bible on earth. In Yeshua’s day, the Essene’s were against the corruption of the temple and kept a solar calendar. At the last supper, Jesus was keeping the Essene Calendar.
I believe G_d is about to reveal to his Body deep truths concerning the stars, signs and seasons. I believe there is also a connection with the 12 tribes, 12 stones, and the zodiac. Around Jesus’ time, the synagogue floors were covered with mosaics of the 12 tribes and the zodiac.
