We are hoping things are well with you all and that you are settling into another start to the Abib Calendar Cycle events witnessing to us from the Promised Land.
This year is what we classify as a pretty much given one. We have posted the dates for the start of the year based on the patterns which have been established over the past couple of decades of following the cycle. However, even with that said, and in fact looked for, we still follow all the signs accumulating across the cycle from start to finish. That is how we have been able to establish reliable patterns for making determinations prior to, and from afar. You can read about those patterns to use in our article: Abib Calendar Criteria to Use when not in the Land. It can be located on our website.
For instance, if you look to our rain reports from the past week you will see the start of a potential pattern that will spell out exactly when the Biblical Year will start. The early rains have been minimal to non-existent in the early grain growing regions. However, they came down in force so far in the areas which house all the popular destinations for those who use goat grass (unacceptable, anemic, wild barley) for their declarations. If this rain pattern keeps up for this current Gregorian month, we will see some of these folks declaring a start to the year out of sync with our Elohim. They will once again be starting their year in the winter just as they did this current year. Patterns in creation establish witnesses to us if we understand the simplicity in Christ/Messiah.
During this cycle we will also be addressing some of the interesting questions which have and most likely will continue to come our way.
One that has recurred over the years is: what will you do when we do not have access to the internet for all the tracking information we now look for and utilize in our Calendar decisions?
Because we have not addressed it on the facebook page does not mean we have been ignoring you folks who have brought this up. Everything in its own time is how I personally function, as do some others here. To answer this question in a complete response we would need to bring up a lot of “what ifs” with some answers.
For instance: I believe the internet will be up and running with people being able to access information at the time of Christs return. I see that clearly in the scriptures as to a worldwide communication network functioning. It will probably be more intensely monitored than it is now, but I have confidence in the ingenuity of many who can manipulate such things to extract what they are looking for even when it is blocked or censored.
I am just not one of those folks who have such skills, so that is why I spend so much time following the Abib Calendar cycles in the Land. In doing so one can make very specific and accurate assumptions as to what is coming based on just some of the witnesses in creation there. So that is an answer in part. Here a little, there a little method of getting to the truth. That is why we make a lot of our findings available to anyone who wants to do the same thing. With practice it can be an amazingly accurate method. We are all to do our best in these efforts.
But let’s face it, there are some who are really well versed in them, there are some who wish they were, and there are some who never will be for they will not put forth the effort on their own. That is not any kind of slight or put down, just a simple fact. We have all three types on the Facebook Page. We also have a contingent of folks who are in absolute opposition to what we publish here. And at times are very antagonistic. But that is okay with us for we all have to make personal decisions which at a future time will be brought into the light of our Judgment criteria.
Now for the second part of the answer as I personally understand it. This will catch some of you by surprise on several fronts and some of you not at all.
As I mentioned I believe we will still have access to a lot of info right up to Christs return for His Bride which will take place on a future Feast of Pentecost. That is three and a half years before He returns with her at His side on a future feast of Trumpets. Once he returns on Pentecost the 50th Jubilee for Spiritual Israel, things will take a different turn so to speak. That is actually a pun as you will see.
Look at the events surrounding His return as the Lamb of God/Elohim. Let’s use the NKJV translation. There are better ones but this will do.
Revelation 6:12-17 I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood (what is blood used for in the sacrificial system). And the stars (who are the stars and when are they thrown down to the earth Rev 12:7-9) of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?
That sure is a different situation from when He returns to make war on His enemies at the feast of Trumpets when they are all arrayed in battle formations in front of Him (Revelation 19:11-21). But let’s just focus on the events taking place with the earth and the heavens here in Revelation 6. We have an article which explains all of these specific happenings on the website if you want to read about them all. But for now, let’s make it simple.
This “mighty rocking of the entire earth sideways and to a fro” (that is what the Greek word actually means when used with its root) is speaking about the axis of the earth being straightened up so it runs parallel to the sun and not at a 23.44-degree angle as it does currently. By the way that can vary between 22.1 and 24.5 throughout its cycle over many years. Thus, some very specific climate changes or extremes in some of those groups of years. So, what effect will a straightening up of the axis have?
There will no longer be different seasons between the Northern and Southern hemispheres. In fact, there will no longer be a need to intercalate a 13th month, for they will all be 30 days, thus 12 of them will make a perfect year. How many times have you read about 30 day months, and 12 month years, in prophetic scripture and wondered when that would happen?
When this event occurs, it will have the look of things in the heavens just as described in Revelation 6. Things will look a lot different than they do now. They will be confusing and not able to be read by those who are stargazers, astrologers. Yes, like a scroll rolled up. Nothing will be in its old place in the heavens.
So, how can I claim such a thing, and where is the prophesied evidence of it happening, is probably the reaction for many? Let’s just go to one of the prophetic references to it.
Isaiah 13:6-13 Howl, for the day of the Lord (Yehovah) is at hand! It will come as a destruction from the Almighty. On account of this all hands shall droop, every heart of man shall melt, and they shall be afraid. Pangs and sorrows will take hold of them; they will be in pain as a woman in childbirth; they will be amazed at one another; their faces will be like flames (Sounds like what we read in Revelation 6 does it not). Behold, the day of the Lord (Yehovah) comes cruel and with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land waste. And He will destroy its sinners out of it. For the stars of the heavens and their constellations will not give light; the sun will be darkened in its going forth, and the moon will not reflect its light. I will visit evil on the world, and their iniquity on the wicked (Obviously great tribulation). I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease, and I will humble the pride of tyrants. I will make a man more rare than fine gold, a man more than the carvings of Ophir. So, I will shake the heavens, and the earth will move out of its place, in the wrath of the Lord (Yehovah) of hosts and in the day of His fierce anger.
Two specific big events here, He will shake the heavens and the devil and his angels will be thrown to the earth just as figs by a vicious wind, and he will take the earth out of its current cycle of seasons by making the axis cease as it currently does and making it parallel with that of the sun. What was visible in the heavens will change dramatically when one looks up at the constellations, etc. The result is very simple. No need to have the light of the sun reflecting off the moon any longer for the purpose of witnessing to a start of a new month with the sighting of the crescent as we currently do because they are either 29 or 30 days. Thus, it will be easy to count out the days and also the months to know when the appointed times of meeting will be kept for every month will be 30 days. Apply that to the 42-month scenarios in Revelations and you have simple answers to what is bantered about by many these days. This is all simple to follow as to its timing for those who have an understanding of the sequence of events in the timeline of the Plan of Salvation.
So, two answers to the question, one takes effort on our behalf now during the qualifying times of the Bride, the eternal helpmate, the Second Eve to the Second Adam. The other not that desirable, but if we are to be in that one, we will have a simple task of determining days, months, and years. We will be without excuse during those times of extreme trial and testing.
For you guys who need some visuals take a look at the pictures below. These are from dreamstime, but you can find them all over the internet. The first two give you a look at the axis and the related imaginary lines which describe certain boundary points as the earth moves through the yearly orbit around the sun on a 23.44 tilt or axis.
The third one is a simple visual of how this determines the seasons in that orbit. Now when looking at it, just envision no 23.44 axis tilt, but one parallel with the sun (picture 4). That’s how simple it will be. It is a fact it will happen as scripture points out to us in many places. This second answer is not the real desirable setting to be found in, but if we find ourselves there let’s make the best of it.
So here you have my understanding of what the future may hold for us who follow the Abib Calendar cycle for determining the start of the year according to our Elohim.
Have some fun looking into this one.
