This video is about biblical time and it will challenge your perspective about calendars, years, holy festivals, how a day is formed, and perhaps even the origin of the creation universe.
I started working on this video because I became concerned that we may not be following the right calendar in terms of observing the feasts of Yah. For example Pesach (Passover) 2020 was on 8th Apr and in 2021 was on 27th Mar. Therefore, we have effectively observed a year with just had a year with 353 days! Consider the scriptures about “times” like our year, and they seem to revolve around a period of 360 days. If Pesach is on the 14th day of the first month of the year (Leviticus 23:5/6) then we should not be able to have two Pesach celebrations within 360 days. I’m learning too, please share your thoughts with me.
The Sun and The Moon were not created until day four of creation (Genesis 1:14-19). Therefore, biblically speaking, times (similar to our concept of a year), begin on weekday four, our “Wednesday”. Here begins the cycle of counting holy days.
Q: Which Wednesday is the first biblical day of the year?
A: The Wednesday closest to Spring Equinox day will be Aviv 1 signalling the beginning of counting for the New Biblical year, providing at least 364 days have been counted since the last Aviv 1 (note Jubilees 6:30).
And all of the days which will be commanded will be fifty-two weeks of days, and all of them are a complete year. (Jubilees 6:30).
Unlike secular days which start at midnight…
The Bible establishes that days start at sundown and continue until the following sundown, evening first, then morning. Genesis 1:3 states, “So there was evening, and there was morning, one day”. This phrase repeats in Genesis 1:8; 1:13; 1:19; 1:23 & 1:31.(more…)
