THE CALENDAR TO INDEX
is the dialog on the calendar, printed 1991
THE ERROR OF MAN'S CALENDAR
Man is not only a creature of habit,
but good or evil, right or wrong, he grows
comfortable with that which is continually upon him. And so I am speaking of this ill conceived beast
which the world calls "their calendar", a pagan concoction of juggled
days, which in effect is like scurvy, a disease that grew within them for lack
of proper insight.
The many pagans may not care much for
moral or religious festivals, whether or not they are kept properly, yet even
they are bothered by the annual change in the weekday of their holidays. Nor
does it surprise me when the many that
call themselves by the name of Christ dare to ask, "What is wrong with
the days on which we keep the festivals of the Lord?"
well as Israelites have the habit of changing their sabbaths to a different day
of the week each and every year. The Christians (as they proudly call
themselves) imagine that they maintain their sabbath on the first day of the
week, while in fact from year to year, they pass through every day of the week.
And while the
Israelites should know better, they utilize any convenient day of the week on
which the pagan calendar places them as their seventh day. And so neither Jews
nor Gentiles in this respect know right from wrong, and to this day they lack
the wisdom to correct themselves.
But what is
yet worse, this irrational behavior of men, to celebrate holy festivals on
impure days, seems to bother them very little, for after all, it is only to God
and His honor that these festivals are maintained, and why should that bother
us? If the same, however,
pertained to us for example, if the 4th of July festival were held on the 6th
day of that month, that of course would be a no - no. You can't just change
these things, for the 6th simply cannot be the festival of the 4th. Or who on
his birthday, would not feel that something is not right if it were celebrated
on some other day?
I declare you self-centered I shall not be out of line. But more than that, I
will call you foolish and self
destructive in considering the requests and commands of your Creator so lightly. For Just
look up in the night sky at all that marvelous creation, which came to exist by
nothing more than the power of His word alone. And see yourself as nothing more
than a worm, would you dare to defy Him who is so inconceivably powerful, and
who demands justice as the reward of His wrath from each and every one of us? By
all means, then, I should teach you the calendar, the years in their progression
as He instituted the same for us.
THE CALENDAR RESTED IN THE MOVEMENTS OF
created the sun, and the Earth to be moved by the sun, and He gave the Earth a
certain speed of rotation, and a certain velocity in its orbital path, as well
as a certain speed of precession by which the days, years, weeks, and seasons
are formulated. And He made them with such precision
that within them all the days of the year would come punctually, inclusive
all that is to be reckoned with, both days and festivals.
For the all-wise
Lord concluded to create something new, to create something called time
in the movements of the Earth to exist for the short span in which all the
race of man were to be born.
therefore, as well as time, was fashioned
in the movements of our temporary
home, that we might account for the same, and reckon our lives accordingly
that we might contemplate our end from our beginning, and that which is of no
time into all time, comparable to what is of time and consequently mortal. For
so I might coin a phrase: Time exists
only for a difference, and for a difference we are timed. If. Therefore, we
do not in this time make for a difference, the time of no time will impress that
difference upon us with pain and regret.
Since now the
Lord thought me worthy to infuse me with His Spirit, and taught me how He made
his worlds, and granted me understanding of the foundations of His creation, I
can both teach you the progression of the year as He left those instructions
with his servant Enoch for all generations to follow, and how that progression
is simultaneous with what we call the scientific fundamentals whereby He caused
them to come about punctually, which is then as follows:
The Earth is driven
by the sun, which causes three motions
to come about simultaneously: (a) The Earth's orbital path once a year around
the sun; (b) its rotation in the increments of twenty-four hours; (c) a movement
of precession whereby the changes in seasons come about, and which also marks
the seasons in four increments, namely in the single circle of its nature of
eight, so that not in "one", but in the being of "two" every
one may be whole. (The graphics with the months of Tammuz, Tishri, and Shebat
serve to illustrate the above.)
The sun then
drives the Earth onward by a set of cycles, each rotation of the Earth being a
cycle, which is a movement in the form of a figure eight. This, in a yearly
progression, is by a set of 366 cycles, which by another factor is reduced to
roughly 3/4 of one cycle.
period, then, the Earth makes one full, complete turn of precession, which is
four full seasons as one full year, since a year is comprised of four full
seasons rather than one turn of orbit. The turn of orbit around the sun then is
almost the same as four full seasons, the fractional difference (according to
scientists) being 1/26,000. This means that in 26,000 years the Earth makes one
more or less turn of orbit relative to its processions, each one of which is
four seasons (1 year).
THE DAYS OF THE YEAR ACCOUNTED AT 360
set of cycles then, (each cycle being a day, a full rotation west to east of the
Earth), the Lord gave us 360 days to count for our lives. For the Lord Most High
is merciful. He did not create man that they should be as slaves, nor that man
should serve the days nor the hours, nor their labors, but that they should
serve him to his pleasure and well-being.
the Lord appoint 360 days for man to count in each year. And He divided them in
the period in which man was to be born, in the length of time that man should
have his rule upon the Earth, namely into twelve periods which are called "months".
Each month therefore has 30 days, no more, and no less.
If now you
wish to verify my education from the Lord Most High, you will find that Moses
also counted the months as 30 days each. For "wherever"
and "whenever" the true calendar was known, the days of the year
were accounted at 360, twelve months at thirty days each, together with the
reckoning that also belongs to it. I cannot err in these things, since they are
simply a matter of record from the Scriptures, from Moses yes, and also from the
Scriptures by Enoch (Book of Luminaries) wherein he accurately defines the whole
of the year together with the days of reckoning.
THE YEAR IN ITS RECKONING
therefore, the difference between what is accounted
and what is reckoned. Something which
we `'account" we place into numbers, while to "reckon" with
something is to keep it "in reckoning", which although it is tallied,
is not the same as to place it within accounting. Consequently, there is an
important difference between "reckoning" and "accounting".
Of the 364
days in the year then that are tallied, 360 are accounted, while the four
remaining are never accounted, but nonetheless reckoned with, so that the whole
year may be known to be 364 days.
days (MK, HK, ML, NL) have no number, since
they are not days of accounting, yet
they fall upon a specific day of the week wherein and whereby they are reckoned
as days of the year. These days are the Heads
of the four seasons. They are the days in which the leaders (the chief
angels) come in to lead their respective season. For as Enoch defines it, the
sun passes through six gates located east end west, rising and setting. For just
as we divide the Earth in longitude and latitude to mark the location at which
one might find oneself, so the passing of the sun is marked by
"gates", each gate essentially being a figure eight of the forces by
which the Earth is moved about. (The various positions are graphically
illustrated with the months.)
In eight of
these (the first two months of each season), there are 30 cycles, while in the
remaining four, the sun serves the leaders in making an
extra passing over and beyond the 30. When, therefore, the days (or the
cycling) of the month of Adar (March) are completed the angel Malki'el comes in
on that extra day to take charge.
then marks the beginning (or first) of
the year, which day is not called by any number, other than referring to it
as the beginning, or the "first of". For your sake, however, I have
called it by the name of him whose day of arrival it is. Maiki'el thus is noted
by his initials MK, and likewise with the other three leaders of the seasons.
Other recorders put these days into words, saying "the days of
remembrance", or, the "appointed times in the four parts of the
days in the year, then, will always come out at, and return to, the fifth day of
the week, a day known as Thursday. And they are days of festival. Jacob used to
celebrate these days by visiting his father and mother, bringing sustenance to
them (his twin brother Esau having robbed them of their goods). The first of
these, the day of new year. is a festival instituted by the Lord at a time
before Adam was formed. The angels celebrated it, even as the Sabbath was
instituted and celebrated in Heaven before the first man was formed. Then Noah,
in remembrance of being saved from the destruction of the flood, instituted the
three remaining days of festival, so that his generations after him might recall
the judgment, and be reminded that there is yet a judgment for them to come as
four days were special, for on the first of the first month (MK), Noah was told
to make the ark, and also on that day the land dried up. And on the first of the
fourth month (HK), the mouths of the abyss were shut. And on the first of the
seventh month (ML), the mouths of the abyss were opened to let the water go into
them. And on the first of the tenth month (NL), the heads of the mountains
appeared, at which Noah rejoiced.
And thus you
have the 364 days of the year, 360 of which are accounted, with four held in
THE LEADERS OF THE SEASONS
But now I
shall further enlighten you concerning these leaders. For these honored leaders
of many thousands of angels are responsible for all that is to take place upon
the Earth, each in their respective days. And they command subordinates,
captains, and many others under their commands, whereby not a single raindrop
too many or short fall upon the Earth according to the will of the Lord.
do not forgive men their sins nor their abstinences, but when it is their order
to make a swath of destruction, such as by means of a tornado, they will not
safeguard any person except by specific order of the Lord, nor in any earthquake
that may be in their order will they be selective who shall live or die.
servants of the Most High are not like men; they -- contrary to the world of men
-- know and fear their Creator, and without hesitation or delay execute every
order given them, be it for good or for evil. The names of these four leaders
are as Enoch has given them: Malki'el, Hela'emmemelek, Maly'ul, and Nar'el. They
each in their time, their season, oversee and rule the high officials of the
months, and the captains in charge of thousands of other spirits, each one
responsible for his day, the total of which is 360 for the year.
Almighty Lord created men without number, but even more so angels without number, and He gave every one his place, duty, and order, in the
grand order in which He formed the heavens and the Earth. To serve men
therefore in all their needs (as well as the angels themselves in their own
nature), He placed a great host unto the race formed of dust, and He charged
them not to reveal themselves, not to show their form, nor to become visible to
the eyes of men, to the extent that the inclination of men might be tested.
For while the
sky around us is literally filled with creatures (spirits), as the stars in the
night sky, man is ignorant of all these. For just as he cannot behold the wind
that nonetheless passes upon his face, so neither can his eyes behold that great
multitude which looks upon him, and serves him to his needs, which he in his
conceit imagines to gather of his own good cunning. Or even as foolish as to
have come of itself, as if these merely evolved, which in every sense of the
word must be the most ignorant word ever to have been invented by men.
THE IMPORTANCE OF PAYING ATTENTION
Allow me now
also to reveal something practical to you, for while there are those among you
who will ask, "But who is Enoch, that we should pay attention to him? For
we have Moses, and Christ Jesus, who did not teach us so." But herein you
err, for Moses did teach so, and also the Lord Jesus, Who first instructed
Enoch, then Noah, and Abraham, and Moses, and this very day it is He who is
teaching you this, rather than I, since He taught me to again testify to you.
And as far as
Enoch is concerned, he has been recording the record of all man's deeds, and by
his record you will be judged in the great day of the Lord. If then his record
of your deeds and of your thoughts does not favor you in that day, you will die
an everlasting death. For both he, and your own record, will testify against
you. Ignore Enoch, the writer of the first Holy Scriptures, and you would have
done better to drown yourself in the sea.
commanded (Jubilees) "And you, Moses, command the
children of Israel that they guard the year in this number, in 364 days, and no
one shall corrupt its time from its days or feasts, for each of them will arrive
according to their testimony, and not pass over a single day." And:
"There will be those who examine the moon, which will corrupt the times,
since it advances ten days from year to year, and they will mix up everything,
twisting the months, the Sabbaths, the feasts, and jubilees Therefore I command
you, and bear witness to you, that you may bear witness to them."
THE DAYS OF ETERNITY
But now you
will come to tell me that the days of the year do not revolve in 364. But you
are in error, for there are no more days to add. But then on the other hand, if
you mess up the seasons by not accurately reckoning
everything, and the seasons fall behind, you will again be guilty. For
here it shows how the Lord demands understanding and diligence from you, and
that if you do not labor for that wisdom with all your strength, you will lose,
and the loss will be your life. For also now that I once revealed to you the
calendar in the ordinance of the Lord, your excuse will have even less
And now I
will tell you that there are three leaders, three great angels, greater in rank than the previously mentioned leaders, whose names
are Adnar'ul, Lyasus'el, and Elumtel. And they enter in by the fifth gate, and
the luminaries (sun, moon and stars) render service to them, meaning the
performance of movement in respect to them, and these belong to the reckoning, to
be reckoned with the reckoning. And will you now know what to do? Will
you, from this information, reckon them properly? I shall not expect you will,
since to this day, neither your teachers nor your wise men for thousands of
years have known the calendar for its basics.
then is: that these chief leaders in their capacity, and in their coming in by the division in four, add to the reckoning in these
fundamental values, each one by the division thereof, the total of which comes
close to 1-1/4 passing of the sun. In each year, therefore, there is that much
more to reckon with, namely a full day
held each and every year, and a partial
day, which is added with those of other years to be held once every four years (in the human tongue, a leap year).
And to find when
these days are to be held, we find that these leaders enter in by the fifth
gate, which is ascending in Ivar (May) and descending in Ab (August).
Consequently, the full yearly day comes after the month of May (Ivar), and
before June (Sivan), which I noted by a figure "eight", as
the "Eight" day, to recall and commemorate
eternity. The four year day then comes after August (Ab).
clearly now and pay attention: for these days do
not fall on any day of the week, nor
is there any "accounting" or "reckoning" of them, except
as days out of the calendar, as a time
not listed in time, for they commemorate eternity,
in which there is no accounting of
time, nor will there be days or weeks to number. When, therefore, the Monday of
May 30 has passed, and the sun rises again, we allow
the sun to pass for that day without any numbering, accounting, or reckoning.
Then the day that follows shall be the Tuesday of June 1. And the same goes for
the period after August, which comes once every four years.
days, which do not show up in the
calendar, you had better regard as solemn holidays. For in these you cannot
get married, nor sign a contract, for if you do, no record of the marriage, nor
of any agreement will exist. Since, however, birth and death are not in your
power, anyone who is born on such a day shall have his or her birth recorded as
the day following, and when one dies, the death shall
be recorded on the day previous thereto. This is so to shorten the time of
your misery in this temporary world.
Nor am I
putting this to you as a suggestion, but I am reinstating the command, these
days within the calendar which is for your sake, otherwise there will be no
recollection, nor keeping of the full reckoning by you, nor therefore any
understanding why it was ordained in just that manner.
The first of
the first month of each season, then, is always on the same day of the week. And
every day of the year, including every festival, returns on the same day
each and every year, without switching and skipping. In this manner, a
day that is sanctified as being more holy than others may be celebrated only on
that day so sanctified, and not on any other day not holy to that purpose, such
as happens in the "pagan calendar", which you have held to this day,
forced upon you in defiance against God.
THE FIRST OF THE YEAR
But now comes
yet the question how I arrived at the first of the year, or the first day of the
first month of the year, and that to fall upon a Friday. The answer to this is
also merely a matter of record, for as Enoch was instructed by the Lord through
his archangel Uriel, that first the sun was allowed to make twelve passes, and
that on the 13th day, with the entrance of the moon, that day would be the head,
or the beginning of the month, as the first of the month. Consequently, we
simply pass twelve days from the beginning, and accordingly set the first of the
And this is
easily verified as being the first of
Nissan (April), since for one thing; the entrance into a circle can only be
at one point. And since the movement from that point is in the ascending
mode, towards the longest day, which it reaches in 91 days, and that day
being at the end of the third month of the year [which we know to be the month
of Sivan (June)], we need only count back 91 days, and pass 12 from the
entrance, from the beginning of time, day one of the week. Accordingly, this
brings us to the sixth day, a Friday, of the second week in the beginning of
time, as the first day of Nissan, the first day of the year.
the longest day is then June 19, and the entrance of the angel Malki'el, at the
Thursday preceding the first Friday, since the extra day of entrance, by the
instructions of Enoch, comes at the end of the last month of each season. Hence
the days of the year are brought back down to their original, from
the very beginning of creation.
THE FIGURE OF EIGHT
Perhaps I am
being too complicated, or am passing the information on with too little detail.
But there is so much revelation here that I cannot put it all into detail.
Consider, however, that within a circle there is no beginning, nor any end, nor
any middle, it being a never-ending arc. And unless something unique is done,
there can be no beginning nor any entrance into this circle, nor therefore any
birth or multiplication.
therefore in His great power and wisdom formulated a half-wave formation, which
I illustrated to you in the form and
likeness of a circle. And thus the Lord created the unique figure eight,
which besides this non-physical reference is also found throughout the
fundamentals of the physical universe, such as the power and forces of nature
being set forth and operating in that same principle. For the magnetic force of
the Earth and of all the stars and planets is by a figure eight. And the days in
their rotation, hinging on the sun, trace a figure
eight each and every day, which is a cycle, the end of one leading
the cord upon the beginning of the next.
It is also by
this figure eight that there are two simultaneous tides upon the earth. For just
as the handles of a pair of scissors when closed compress the cutting edges, so
the figure eight, when the moon elongates the one side of the figure eight to
cause a tide to occur under it upon the Earth, a second tide is simultaneously
created on the far side of the Earth, away from the moon. Moreover, our very
weight upon the Earth is by this figure eight, as well as our direction to
center of center. For while a centrifugal force, and also gravitational
inclination find their center all along the whole axis of the Earth, the figure
eight of force, which first and foremost is known as magnetic, has no axis, nor
line of center, but a single center of center, all lines from the spherical
directions coming to a single point.
I may be
accused of being too technical for most, but then I consider it everyone's duty
to take some pains to educate oneself in what the fundamentals are, by which and
within which our Creator gave us to live. The ideal then in the creation (the
principle of which I displayed to you by means of a circle in the format of a
figure eight) is most unique, for although the eight is two circles, it
nonetheless is single.
pertains also to man, being one entity in two persons, man and wo-man. As thus
the single circle furnishes no point of entry, although the eight does allow an
entrance, its point of center. Then again, this entrance, rested in the twofold
nature, allows both birth and renewal, as well as multiplication, for already
the one has become two, and the two by their nature seek multiplication, the
reaches of which are endless.
shall time come to pass, if not to enter upon the center of the eight? Or of
what purpose shall this time be, if not for the eight day that is to follow it?
Or again, how will the seasons come about, if not to pass by a figure eight?
THE TIME OF TWELVE
secrets now shall I reveal to you? Why, for example, were there twelve days to
pass before time was to take effect on the Earth? Or why was it said that the
moon would make its entrance after these days? Perhaps I should not reveal these
things, but then I do not wish to deny understanding to the wise.
must tell you that this generation, as also
your forebears, have been living in the dark, in a time of no time, since
you are still passing within these twelve days. The moon is yet to give its
light, meaning truth, righteousness, justice, and understanding. It is not to
enlighten the world until the Sun of God shall enlighten the Earth on the
seventh day, which is when Christ Jesus shall dethrone the rulers and punish the
nations, and gathering His people, He shall bless those that remain, and Himself
rule the Earth.
I must tell
you that, although the Lord numbers your days, He does not reckon your passing
as anything more than a shadow. That your days of six thousand years is no snore
than twelve passing of the sun, twelve short periods in which the Sun indeed
rose upon the Earth, but cast no light upon the works of men which were in the
dark, for they concealed their deeds, not placing their works in the light of
the Sun. Wherefore also they were unfit for recording, to pass into time.
Consequently the memory thereof will be forgotten, for sinners will not have any
memorial on the Earth forever.
FESTIVALS OF THE LORD
THE FESTIVAL OF PASSOVER
It is a
matter of common sense for one to celebrate the day of his birth on the day,
which recounts his birth. So it is with the celebration of Passover. If Israel
is to celebrate its deliverance from the bondage of Egypt, it should be
celebrated on that day of the year in which the Passover Lamb was killed, by
whose blood the Israelites were safeguarded from the avenging angel. Or by the
same token, when those Gentiles on whose doorpost the blood of the Lamb of God
is found, wish to commemorate that day on which the avenging angel passed them
by, then let that commemoration be holy.
you, on a Tuesday, to proclaim, "This day the Lord shed His blood for us,
while that day was in fact a Friday, that will not only make you a fool, but a
liar as well. Or if you make a celebration, which you in your ill knowledge
conceive as a holy convocation, that on this 15th day of the first month the
Passover Lamb was offered for you while in fact it is the 17th of what you
erroneously call the third or seventh month, then what are you? Most
assuredly not wise, but a person without knowledge, lacking understanding.
places the Lord specifically emphasizes, "Remember this day in which you
came out of Egypt, in the month of Abib (Nissan, April). You shall keep this
service in this month. You shall keep this ordinance at
its appointed time from year to year.
And do you
now think because the Lord said, "Do this as often as you do in remembrance
of Me," that He meant you can do it whenever you please, on any day you
please? Is the Lord one to contradict Himself? Or to speak against the ordinance
of His Father who clearly on numerous occasions specifically says "At
its appointed time"
Not even man
is fool enough to celebrate his birthday
on some other day. Shall you then think less of the Lord? For your
information, look at what the Father of all creation did. He brought His Son,
the Passover Lamb, to be crucified on precisely the
right day, on the first day of Passover. For on the 14th in the
evening is the beginning of Passover, and on the 15th is the Feast of Passover.
And it was on that day, at the 6th hour, before evening, that He, the
Lord, was put on the tree, and that day was a Friday.
Is it then, I
ask you, the way of the Lord to mess up His calendar which He Himself commanded,
or did He not rather confirm the same in these very actions of Him?
Or do you
think now that the foreshadowing of the Passover Lamb has passed, the Lord
Himself having taken the place of the lamb of flesh, that the feast has ended?
Quite the contrary, the feast has become even more realistic, the True Lamb gave
His life, and He Himself did not abandon it, but confirmed it in Himself saying,
"This is My blood and My body, let no one eat or
drink thereof being unworthy, lest he eat and drink damnation to himself."
And also, "I have not come to abolish the law and the ordinances of old,
but rather to confirm them, or to fulfill them." He therefore strengthened
the ordinance and law of His Father, who said, "This
day shall be for you a memorial day, and you shall keep it as a feast to the
Lord throughout your generations, you shall observe it as an ordinance forever."
given to write: "In the first month on the
fourteenth day of the month, in the evening, is the Lord's Passover, and on the
fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread to the Lord.
Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall have a
holy convocation, you shall do no laborious work, but you shall present an
offering by fire to the Lord seven days; and on the seventh day is a holy
assembly, you shall do not laborious work."
But if now we
(both Jews and Gentiles), have forgotten how the year is put together, when we
do not rightly know when a day of the year is what, or when, how will you
possibly celebrate the feast of the Lord in righteousness and in peace? For when
in your ignorance you celebrate your birthday two days in advance of the true
day, your statement "This day was the day of my birth" shall be a
lie, and you the liar. And do not attempt to blame God, or to blame
ignorance, for in your own words I heard you say, "Ignorance of the law
is no excuse." And with that you confirm Solomon as he said, "No
one can please God, lest he remains with wisdom."
The 14th day
of the first month, then, is not just any day that it may happen to be, as it is
with the pagan calendar, but after the ordinance of the Lord, that day falls on
the 5th day of the week, on a Thursday. The first day of Passover, therefore, is
on the Friday, which follows that Thursday. That 15th, then, is the first day of
Passover, and considered a Sabbath, and also the last day of Passover, the 21st,
is held as a Sabbath. On these two days, no laborious work is to be performed,
on which all business matters are laid aside, not even to be spoken of.
In that first
month of the year, therefore, there are seven Sabbaths, which pertain to the
children of God, to Israel, and to the Gentiles that are joined with them. For
the Sabbath is a rest, and the festivals a rejoicing, which were
not ordained for the world. And for as much as they do not rest, the
world that is, they shall not enter the rest. And for as much as they did
not rejoice with the firstborn, they shall neither rejoice, but grieve, and ever
be grieving. For no one gave them permission to worship idols, nor to refrain
from entering when the door was opened to them. Therefore, also must they
perish, because in their pride they knew not God.
And note the
precept, which I noted with that month. Think on this, as thought for an
offering, as wisdom and right knowledge the thing that the Lord exacts of us.
For if we do not first have the right knowledge, how shall our works be after
do both Enoch and I accord with the calendar as we have presented the same,
relative to the events in which the Lord Himself passed? For surely, the Lord,
having instituted these specific days, He granted himself accordingly.
rebellious Israelites wished to kill Him that same day, that Friday, when He
stood before Pontius Pilate, because, as they said the Sabbath was coming, and
it was not permitted to kill on a Sabbath. Yet that day was the same as a
Sabbath, which goes to show that without wisdom, there is no understanding of
The Lord now
in fact was killed before the Sabbath, since He came to surprise the rulers of
darkness on the turn of the fourth to the fifth day, approximately the year
4000, some two days, or 2,000 years in advance of the Sabbath, the seventh day
of the week of creation.
It is evident, then, that in the days when Jesus walked upon the Earth, Israel was keeping the days of the week and of the months on their proper course. This may be seen as something amazing, since not long after Moses and Joshua, the people began to corrupt the ordinances of the Lord, having lived past David and Solomon, and Hezekiah and Josiah, into the exile. And the Lord had said that they would forget all His ordinances, and not remember any of His instructions, but that they would follow pagan rules and practices.
In view of
these things, their right order of the year may come as a surprise, especially
since about that time the calendar was in such disarray among the Gentiles that
Julius Caesar sent for a wise man to correct the course of the year, not that
that Greek was very wise, the evidence of which is visible yet this day on the
shambles of the concoction which now both Jews and Gentiles call a calendar.
than calling it amazing for Israel at that time to have the days in their right
perspective, let us call it by the design of God, and let Israel be honored in
that grace of God, and let the Gentiles be shamed for failing to go to Israel to
obtain the wisdom needed for their calendar, that instead they went to a Greek,
which in the words of Paul, are always known as liars.
If then one
is not both baptized and circumcised,
he has not passed over to celebrate Passover. But he who is baptized in both
fire and Spirit, and also circumcised on the heart and on the ear, he has cause
to celebrate. For now I say to Gentiles in the Spirit of Christ Jesus with me
that unless you are circumcised as Jacob was
circumcised, in addition to what you conceive in baptism, you shall not enter
the Kingdom of Heaven.
But you, O
Israel, I am not your judge, but this I say: be you circumcised or not, your
remnant will be gloriously cut to the heart. And be you baptized or not, your
remnant will be cleansed in Him who was heard to be well-pleasing to God, in
your river Jordan.
THE FEAST OF SHABUOT
of First Fruit, and of weeks, is as is stated of a two-fold nature: a thank-offering
in acknowledging and relinquishing the first fruits, and the commemoration of
the oath of the covenant, of the promise, that in seven weeks, (like as in days)
the promise will be brought to fulfillment, or the oath will be brought to bear,
or the covenant will see its full house.
As to the
understanding of the first fruits, there is much that can be said. There are the
first-fruits of our labors, of the yield of the Earth, and there is the first
fruit of Israel, twelve thousand of each tribe. And there is yet another meaning
for which reason I expressed the words "acknowledge" and
"relinquish". For this endless multitude of men must at one time come
to acknowledge the first fruits taken from among them, and, that indeed they
are first fruits, the wholesome and spotless ones chosen from the yield as
offerings to God, as His sons. And they shall have to relinquish these of
their number, and of their thoughts.
From the very
time then that the sickle is put into the standing grain, which was when Abel's
offering was accepted, and Cain killed Abel, there will be seven weeks, seven
thousand years, a jubilee. A jubilee of jubilees then always adds one to itself.
Thus from the morning after the Sabbath, to the morning after the Sabbath, as
from the beginning to the Eight day, then the oath, or the promise, and covenant
will have its full and final completion.
These are the
things commemorated by this festival, which in essence is like the two other
festivals. It is therefore three times in the year that we are brought to be
reminded of our heritage, and how and why we journey through this time for a
time in which there will be no reckoning of time.
As I now
comment on the Festival of Weeks, I will show where
the Lord spoke to Moses of that day of eternity, of the "Eight"
day that is neither counted nor reckoned in the days of the year, nor is it
named or listed as I have done, which neither Moses nor Enoch did. But I made
myself guilty in doing so on your account, on account of the frailty of men, to
the intent that you might truly acknowledge and keep what is pleasing to God.
Is it not
written, the Lord saying that when one has learned well, having acquired the
wisdom in right measure to qualify as a teacher, that he would bring forth both
old and new things from his cask of treasures? Well on, I am doing just that,
both old and new, and not omitting what passes in between.
The Feast of
Weeks is a Feast of First Fruits, a thank offering for the blessings which God
has granted, to offer the first fruits, the best of the best as bounty for God's
servants that serve in His temple. And so the Lord said (Deut: 16): "From
the time that you first put the sickle in the standing grain," seven weeks
thereafter shall be the feast of weeks.
do not specify a specific day, except that it cannot very well start until the
first grain is harvested. Which from the first month of the year to seven weeks
later, comes to the third month of the year. Which coincides with what was
commanded to Moses when he was on the mountain: that in this month was the feast of weeks, for it was the month of Sivan,
the third month, in which the Lord spoke to him on the mountain. The sheaf
therefore must be waved on the third day of Passover in order for the
celebration to fall on the sixth of Sivan. Or, if done after Passover, it must
be on the 24th of Nissan, which then places the festival of weeks on the 13th of
records on the feasts of Israel, I am told that it is on the sixth of Sivan,
seven weeks from the end of Passover. But whoever wrote that clearly never
finished grade school, for there are no seven weeks between Passover and the
sixth of Sivan. As then the ordinance of the Lord clearly states: "From the morning after the Sabbath, to the morning after the
Sabbath seven weeks later,
50 days" so it must be. For so also it will be, we will celebrate and rejoice on the very
morning after the Sabbath, meaning on the
Eight day, the morning that comes after the seventh day of creation.
And you, O
Israel, as well as 1, will both wish to celebrate that feast of the oath on the
morning after the Sabbath, on the eternal day after the seven thousand have
ended. For as far as the multitude is concerned which do not remember the
morning after, who live only for the days of six, to perpetuate their misery,
not considering the rest, nor the promise
of the morning after, they will neither receive that rest, nor inherit that
promise of the Eight day, the day of eternal glory.
And now let
us see specifically what the Lord said unto Moses to write into the law (Lev:
23): 'And you shall count from the morning after the
Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering. Seven
full weeks shall they be, counting fifty days to the morning after the seventh
Read these words again, and then calculate how much seven times seven comes to. Try it a thousand times, but the answer will always be 49, and never 50 days. And yet, the Lord said 50 days. And so why did the Lord say 50 days, while seven weeks can only number to 49? For again from a morning after to a morning after, in weeks of seven, can the number ever come to anything but a multiple of seven?
some who say you count seven full weeks, and then the day after that on the 50th
day is the celebration. But that is "not" the command of God, nor by that fallacy of
men will anyone ever inherit eternity. Nor will I excuse any
man for that ignorance, since "from morning after to morning
after" is much to plain to be taken in error.
then is this: contrary to you who do not know the calendar, the Lord does know
the calendar which He Himself instituted for all the generations of men, and in
that calendar there are 50 days within those seven weeks. For each
and every year in the month of Ivar there is always
that single extra day, that day that for you I called
the "Eight" day, the day that marks eternity, which
comes at the end of Ivar and before Sivan.
It is therefore that the Lord said 50 days. For look again how
this is: the Lord purposed seven seasons (or days) of years by which to bring
eternity to man, and to bring that eternity immediately following upon the seven
(as the morning after). But how shall a seven by seven come to a full and
complete jubilee -- which always adds one to itself to number to 50 --to
be perfected to a morning after, if not eternity was already included
Forgive me if
I am being too complicated to bring out this secret of the Lord to the meaning
of the feast of Shabuoth. The Lord made such secrets unto me as though they were
child's play, but to bring them out into words wounds me as by a thorn in my
side, a thorn which the Lord has placed there, and for good reason, that like
Paul I shall not be too greatly elated.
If thus it
were not for the day of eternity to be wedged
within the seven weeks, we would never come to that glorious day to arrive
in the morning after. For again, if we go to the day after that for the celebration, then that is the same as waiting
for our day of eternity to arrive after
the day of eternity, after the Eight day, to look for a day
"Nine". And if these foolish men wish it that way, they shall have a very
long time to wait, namely, all eternities, since the Eight day, the morning
after is forever.
And so you
see how imperative the true progression
of days are. For you cannot possibly celebrate the feast of Shabuoth except
by this calendar, which the Lord instituted, for only by it can you
fulfill the will and command of God to come to 50 days as the collateral of the
feast. Did not the Lord make all things by measure? And does He not bring all
things in their time and number? Nor does He stir them until their time and
measure are complete. The Lord will not wait a single day or a single minute to
bring His judgment, nor anything of what He has foretold. The Lord is accurate
in all things that He does, but men do not know one day from the next, for where
the eyes are blinded, no light passes through.
particular Eight-day, then, does not come in any other part of the year, every
consecutive year. Conclusively, therefore, the Feast of Weeks is in that part of
the year, in these months, in a period, which passes the month of Ivar.
Moses, then, in the Spirit of the Lord, pronounces to say 50 to add that day
that is never added nor accounted in the days of the year so that I might
evidence the same to you.
will contend that the Lord did not clearly
specify that day which is not in the accounting of the year? For again, how
was Israel, or Moses, to count 50 days in seven weeks from a morning after the
Sabbath to again a morning after a Sabbath, if not for that day of eternity? And
is it not therefore also crystal clear that even the small things of God shame
the great things of men?
THE FEAST OF BOOTS
of Tabernacles is a reminder that the Lord caused Israel to dwell in boots
(tents), meaning that the Lord afflicted his people, that they were not
righteous of themselves, but were cleansed in His grace, and that for their sins
the Lord did not hold them guiltless.
also is in the duration of seven days, meaning the seven weeks of creation, that
the affliction of the people of God would be consummated in the span of seven
thousand years, six of which would be laborious days, while the seventh, the
last thousand, shall be a rest, the glorious day of the Sabbath.
On the first
day of this festival, the 15th of the seventh month, the Lord commanded a day
like a Sabbath, a day in which no laborious work is done, which again falls on a
Friday, as does Passover. Then follow the regular Sabbath, and the first five
days of the following week, as days of the festival, which concludes the seven
days on the 21st of Tishri.
But now comes
something very marvelous, for Jacob added one day to the festival, which he
called "Addition", which became, and was, the
Eight day. And the Lord commanded Moses to add that day to the
festival, as a day of a Sabbath, a day in which no laborious work should be
done. The 22nd therefore, which is a Friday, is again a Sabbath, bringing the
number of Sabbaths in that seventh month to seven, just as it is in the first
this is not altogether correct, for while the Lord summoned seven weeks for his
creation, which is reflected in the first festival in the first month, He
creates again everything new in the eighth week, which is reflected in this
third festival in the seventh month. For while the "Addition" is the
Eight day, which Jacob requested that he might come to recall everything he had
seen and heard, (like asking for eternity, time enough to come to understand
everything) there should also be eight Sabbaths, for the Eight day is an eternal
Sabbath. And in fact, there are eight Sabbaths in that month, namely the day of
Atonement, the day on which the brothers banded against Joseph, the 10th day of
the month, which falls on a day after the Sabbath, on the first day of the week
that sanctifies the feast.
I spoke of
the day of "Addition" as something marvelous, but to whom shall I
reveal myself, or who shall grasp the meaning even if I did so? For Jacob is a
king, and now speaking in the tongue of kings, the world is his, and all the
kings of the world are of his loins who will be found to rule in all nations. O
how marvelous you are, Jacob, because for you, being the first-born of God, for
you the whole world and all its people were created. Canaan squatted on your
vine, but we all in the whole world are of your inheritance. You desired the
Eight-day, a very wise request, and O, how
gloriously you shall live in it.
Since now the
Feast of Boots is a reminder of the affliction in which Israel was placed, how
very delicious it is of the Lord that He will demand of all the Gentiles that
they shall come to acknowledge and honor it. For even this calendar, which I was
given to renew as a herald before the arrival of the Lord, they shall come to
acknowledge. For again, on the seventh day, no labor is performed, the
preparation for its food being made on the day previous thereto. And so it will
be to all you Gentile nations, that when anyone decides not to send
representatives to Israel at the time of the Feast of Boots in honor thereof,
even if it be for a single year, that nation will not receive rain in all of
that year. And thus it will be year after year, century after century.
THREE IN SEVEN BY A SIX
A formula, a
value, an understanding, the fundamentals of which in the realm in which they
pass, is simply beyond words to express. Nevertheless, the value of the
festivals are easily understood in the revelation of them. For all three of the
festivals of the Lord are set upon the week of creation, upon the seven days or
weeks of years.
in seven days, for in seven days, that is, in seven thousand years the sons of
God will pass over into their promised land, the world newly created. And
likewise with the Feast of Boots, and that of the First Fruit in the weeks that
bring about the Eight-day. And in each of these the seventh day is a Sabbath
pointing to the one thousand year Sabbath.
And to eat
unleavened bread for seven days, for seven turnings of the sun, is merely a
token, just as the Sabbath, occurring once each seven rotations of the Earth, is
merely a token of the true enduring Sabbath. For with that token it is commanded
us to eat unleavened bread all the days of our lives, from birth to death. The
bread then shall at all times be unleavened, not the
bread that enters into the mouth, but
the bread that proceeds from our mouths.
seven," thus the Lord said, and we are reminded of that three times each
year. For to condense this into a sum of things, it is like this: for as much as
we have transgressed, we cannot be held guiltless. Yet God in His great
compassion gave Himself to save those who could not be held guiltless. And thus
He purposed that in seven weeks man was to be born, be afflicted, and saved, and
that he should understand this purpose of his Creator to save him from his fall,
from the power of death, which is the law, which demands its right even before
God, the Lord being foremost in granting the law it's right, for it is the law,
and no one is above the law, except that God Himself is law
THE FEASTS AND OFFERINGS
so described herein are by many commonly taken as commanded of Moses, as if
their origin began then. This is however not so, but rather Moses reiterated
long existing feasts. For all these were already written and ordained in Heaven,
and either by command, or by the inspiration of God, the fathers of Israel,
including Noah, established these festivals. The Feast of Boots, for example,
which Moses commanded, was already in effect with Abraham celebrating it by
record at Beer-Sheba.
And as for
the Passover, this was promised to Adam at the time of his fall, and became a
memorial for Abraham when in the month of Nissan, on the fourth day of these
seven, he laid his son on the altar and again received him back from the Lord,
wherefore also the Lord Himself - for His own offering, came on the fourth week
of creation, even as Moses also foretold, saying that
the sun rose in the heavens on the fourth day of creation. And it
became a feast with Israel in their exodus, for their sun had risen on them.
As for the
offering itself, this was consistently a bull or a heifer, and a she-goat, and a
ram, and two birds (a turtledove and a pigeon) and food as well as drink, with
salt and incense. For the offering reflects upon the
ages and upon man in these ages. The ram is Israel, and always male,
the heifer or bull, and the she-goat reflect upon Gentiles.
and Israel offered not only for themselves, but also for the whole world of
nations, to bless all nations. Nations may fight with Israel, and they might
hate her, yet without being asked by them, Israel offered for their salvation
all through the years.
reflect upon the Savior of the world, the Son of David, and in Him the mystery
of what some call a son of Joseph. While the food and drink are interpreted as
the word of God, the law and ordinances, to offer these pure and undefiled. For
also the incense is to present that word in a pleasing manner, pleasing to God,
in truth with wisdom. Salt reflects upon strength, and taste, as opposed to what
is tasteless, like those who teach everything by saying, "I think,"
and, "I suppose," and "in my opinion," miserable creatures
who never have learned to know anything for a fact.
And the blood
sprinkled signifies God's blood, His own affliction that He gave for us in whom
all mankind is redeemed. And the Sabbath as an institution was in existence
before the forming of Adam, in which the children of God, His elect were to
partake, and only these were sanctified for that rest.
Then we could
go into why Eve was brought to Adam on the Eight-day, and such other marvelous
things, which God has in store for those that love Him, things which have not
entered the mind of man. But this should suffice for now.
LORD'S PROMISE TO US
The Lord made
a prophecy, a promise that in our days He would raise up one to renew and again
bring to light the very first Scriptures which to our fathers and patriarchs was
their Bible at the time, and continued to be so to the very time of the
apostles. For so the Lord spoke by Enoch; "Behold, from their seed much
afterwards (our time) shall arise another generation, many of which shall be
very insatiable. And He (Jesus) who shall judge that generation shall reveal to
them the books of your handwriting, to those to whom He must point out the
guardianship of the world, to the faithful men and workers of My pleasure, who do not acknowledge My name in vain.
And they shall tell another generation, and these having read, shall thereafter
be more glorified than the first."
therefore, my dearly beloved: Gods promise being brought to fulfillment. And we
shall tell our children, and they shall live most gloriously.
