The previous article titled "Six Hundred, Threescore, and Six" noted that there were 666 months from the Apollo 11 moon walk on 7/21/1969 to the 1/20/2025 USA Presidential inauguration date.
It was also noted that the Apollo moon program was named for the Greek god Apollyon, Hebrew - Abbadon, the king of the bottomless pit mentioned in the book of Revelation. Apollyon and his demonic armies will be loosed at the end of the age in order to harrass those who don't have the seal of YaHuWaH Elohim.
The Two Kinds of Months
The word "month" is derived from the word "moon". The moon appears to move through the sky in a regular fashion. The original month was probably the measure of the number of days from the observance of one new moon to another new moon. A precisely measured lunar month is 29.53059 days long.
The sun also appears to move through the sky, producing day and night, a single day. In addition to producing day and night, the sun also appears to regulate the seasons in a longer period of time that we call a year. At the end of each day, the sun appears to set on the western horizon at a slightly displaced position from the previous day's sunset. The measure of a year from today's date is the amount of time it takes for the sun to set on the horizon at the same place and in the same season that it did today. A precisely measured year is 365.24219 days long.
Years are usually measured by the sun. Months are usually measured by the moon.
To find the number of New Moons (lunar months) in a year, we divide the number of days in a year (365.24219) by the number of days in a lunar month (29.53059). The result is 12.368. That means there are about 12 and 1/3 lunar months in a solar (sun) defined year.
The Roman Gregorian calendar currently in general use throughout the world has months of 28, 29, 30, and 31 days. The leap day month of 29 days usually occurs only once every 4 years, but once every 400 years an additional leap day is introduced. The Gregorian calendar is structured this way in order to keep the seasons synchronized with the same calendar dates from year to year through the centuries.
The Gregorian calendar was divided into 12 unequal parts called months (named after the moon), probably because the moon made approximately 12 circuits of the earth over the span of one solar year.
The two kinds of months are:
1. The solar based month. The average length of each Gregorian calendar month in a 12 month year is 30.436849 days. The Roman Gegorian calendar has solar based months of various lengths and leap days in order to keep the calendar synchronized with the seasons.
2. The lunar based month. The lunar month is 29.53059 days long. Muslims observe the lunar month and allow the 12 months of 29.53059 days each to float through the seasons year after year without correction.
The Hillel Calendar
The current Jewish Hillel calendar is a lunar based calendar invented after the dispersion of Israel into the nations. It has additional astronomical data introduced, along with various dating laws and a leap month every 3 1/2 years or so, in order to keep the Hillel calendar in a general synchronization with the seasons.
The actual sighting of the New Moon to determine the beginning of the new lunar month was used by the Jewish priesthood in Jerusalem around 30AD. YaHuShua Messiah had no problem with this method of determining the time for the observance of YaHuWaH 's appointed Feast Days. The Hillel calendar now in wide use by Judaism was invented centuries later.
It's interesting to note that the name usually translated Lucifer in Isaiah 14:12 is actually the word Hilel in Hebrew. Lucifer is a latin name.
Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
Here is a more faithful translation of Isaiah 14:12-14 above:
Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Hilel, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of Elohim: I will sit also upon the mount of the appointed times, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
The humanly invented Hillel calendar changes the way the appointed times and Feasts of YaHuWaH Elohim are determined and observed by the Jewish people today. The Hillel calendar is often in disagreement with the sighting of the new moon method of determining the timing of appointed Feast days, a method that YaHuShua Himself found no problem with in the first century.
The Solar "Month"
A solar month is 30.436849 days in length. The Roman calendar has months of varying lengths of 28 to 31 days per month. If we take the exact length of a Roman calendar solar year, 365.24219 days, and divide it by 12 months, we arrive at 30.436849 days per month.
666 Solar months are exactly equal to 20,270.941 days.
The precise addition of 20,270.941 days (666 solar months) to the Apollo 11 lift off launch time from the moon on 7/21/1969 at 17:54 UTC results in a date 666 solar months later of 1/19/2025 at 16:28 UTC.
This 16:28 UTC time translates to 18:28 PM local time in Jerusalem on Gregorian calendar date 1/19/2025, which is after sunset.
According to YaHuWaH Elohim's instructions in Genesis chapter 1, 1/19/2025 will end at 17:02 PM (sunset) in Jerusalem and 1/20/2025 will then begin.
YaHuWaH Elohim, the King of the universe, has explicitly chosen the city of Jerusalem to be His personal possession on the earth, where His coming central governing authority will be established. Therefore the city of Jerusalem is the reference for matters involving the Creator of the universe and His mighty works instead of London, UK.
Below is a graphic showing 666 solar months added on to the Apollo 11 return lift off launch from the moon at 17:54 UTC on 7/21/1969.
The Lunar Month
The thought came to me as I was awaking from sleep recently to also look into lunar months. There are a different number of days in 666 lunar months than there are in 666 solar months.
The Jewish people have relied on the lunar month for thousands of years.
A lunar month is 29.53059 days. That's the time it takes the moon to circuit the earth.
666 Lunar months are exactly equal to 19,667.372 days.
Below is a graphic showing the results from adding 19,667.372 days to the time of the Apollo 11 lift off launch from the moon:
The Midpoint Date
What are the odds that the exact date midway between the two dates mentioned above would be of any significance?
Below: The exact center date between the Jewish Feast of Shavuot on 5/26/2023 and the United States Presidential Inauguration day on 1/20/2025 is Jewish Hillel calendar Purim on 3/24/2024.
There are other constellations in the sky that the moon travels through each month. The constellations of Virgo and Leo comprise just a fraction of the sky that the moon travels through each month, yet the moon in the graphics above appears to have been purposely timed to be in certain locations at certain times.
Our Creator, YaHuWaH Elohim, has ordained the above timeline in the heavens to be working in agreement with the public affairs of the nations of Israel and the United States. We are assured that He is well aware of our increasingly perilous situation on the earth, and that He has everything under control.
