March 24, 2016 Why today is the true Passover this year and not on April 23!

The fallowing article explains very well the reason why the year started in March 9 at night so Nissan 1 fell on March 9-10 and Passover on March 23-24 today.

Last night there was a blood moon eclipse making it another consecutive year where the eclipses have fallen on Passover and Sukkot which makes a sextet of blood moons falling in sacred Holidays of our Lord.

This makes this year also a year of Perfect Order which means that the feasts of the Lord fall on the exact days that they were instructed to Moses and the same dates occurring at Jesus crucifixion.

I see also the possibility of the Rapture to be on Pentecost as well as next Sunday on Easter. Thanks Greg for your wise words.

Did God Intend a Sextet of Blood Moons ?

Did God Intend a Sextet of Blood Moons ?

The 2016 Jewish Calendar is Wrong

How does God reckon the seasons ?

Genesis 1:14 says “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years:”   Therefore, the sun and the moon are used to measure time for seasons, days and years.

When God prepared Israel to move out of Egypt,  he began His teaching in preparation of the first Passover.  This was to be Israel’s first month for calendar reckoning. (Exodus 12:2)    In the tenth day of this month each family was to choose a lamb.  On the fourteenth day, the Lamb would be killed and the blood applied to the door lintels of each family’s home.  This was the preparation for the Lord’s Passover, the night the first born of Egypt would be killed as a judgment against all gods of Egypt.  All those covered by the blood of the Lamb would be “passed over” and saved from the angel of death.

Following Passover, God established the Feast of Unleavened Bread, a seven day feast, where all leaven would be purged from each home.  Leaven represented sin.  The first day and last day of this feast was to be an holy convocation.  This is an everlasting ordinance for Israel.  The month Israel came out of Egypt was Abib, or Nisan. (Exodus 13:4)

The Feast of Unleavened Bread was for a sign upon Israel’s hand and a memorial between their eyes, that the Lord’s law may be in their mouths because it was with God’s mighty hand that He brought Israel out of Egypt. (Exodus 13:9)

Israel was commanded to keep this ordinance (the Feast of Unleavened Bread) in his season from year to year.  This ordinance was emphasized again in Numbers 9:2 where the “children of Israel were commanded to keep the Passover at the appointed season.

The Scriptures do not provide for a “leap year” alteration of the seasons.  When Israel came into the land which God gave them, these feasts to the Lord were aligned with the agricultural seasons.  We see this in the Feast of First Fruits.  This feast celebrated the barley harvest which generally occurred after the Spring Equinox in the first month.  This is our month of March.

Following the feast of First Fruits was the Feast of Weeks or Shauvot  which was celebrated 50 days later.  This was in accordance with the wheat harvest.  Any change in the seasons, particularly by a month, would necessarily interfere with the stages of growth of the barley and wheat harvests.   Both of these are highly significant for the First Fruits “wave sheaf offering” (Leviticus 23:10-11) and the Shauvot “two loaf wave offering” (Leviticus 23:16-17).  The grains which were used ceremonially in Temple practices would be past harvest if delayed an additional month.

The Jewish tradition of adding a thirteenth month of Adar II to account for a leap year, as they have done in 2016,  is without biblical support.  Adding a leap year to the Jewish lunar calendar is an attempt to align their lunar calendar with the solar calendar.   The application of the traditions of men over the literal teaching of Scripture produces error.

Therefore, the Scriptures teach that the first month is associated with the Spring Equinox in spite of the Jewish leap year tradition.  In Year 2016, the new moon signaling the first month of Abib or Nisan appeared on March 9.

The Spring Equinox falls on March 20 or Nisan 10.  Passover falls on Nisan 14 which is March 23/24, 2016.

Jewish reckoning of the Leviticus 23 feasts in 2016 will result in each holy day being celebrated one month late.  Relying on Israel for any prophetic insight is unwarranted.  God says they have a spirit of slumber such that they should not see and should not hear. (Romans 11:8)

Why is this important ?   It is important because the seven feasts are prophetic.  God’s plan follows the prophetic pattern and teaching of these seven feasts.  If we know the correct feast day, we can be wise watchers.

Did God intend a sextet of Blood Moons rather than the tetrad of 2014/15 ?   Are we missing some materially important prophetic message ?   Torah Calendar has Nisan in March, unlike the Jews who place it in April this year.

There are two lunar eclipses in 2016 occurring again on Passover and Tabernacles when we follow the Scriptures command to keep the feasts in their respective seasons.   These 2016 blood moons, together with the tetrad of blood moons for 2014 and 2015  are unique.  Now the six feast day blood moons of 2014, 2015 and 2016 become a Sextet of Blood Moons.   This may have profoundly significant prophetic implications.

Additionally, the 2016 Feast of Pentecost commences on the evening celebration of Israel’s day of national independence, May 14, 2016.

As for me, I am watching Pentecost 2016 as a potential “rapture” window for the Church.  The weekend of May 14/15, 2016 is a watch date.

As I have written in the past, a Jewish Independence Day/Jewish Holy Day removal of “Christ’s Own” (1 Corinthians 15:20-28) could be the event which, in part, fulfills Romans 11:11.  Could it be the Day of Provocation to Jewish jealousy ?

  2. What do you think about this post: ?
    If she is right, Jesus told her in plain English the rapture is in Shavuot, between June 12 and 13. And that Planet-X flyby will be in Passover, April 22-30, bringing a lot of destruction to the world.
    Please, read the other posts on the blog.
    I truly believe Jesus can talk that way, but it is such an impressive Q&A session with Jesus I’ve never heard before.


    March 25, 2016 at 11:29 pm

    • Luis thanks for the link, I read it and it was very good. Yes I believe that she is right when she says it could be in Shavuot or Pentecost as well as tomorrow on Easter as the Christian world is celebrating. This year the religious authorities of Israel the Sanhedrin declared that the year started Nissan 1 on the night of March 9 making March 10 till 6PM Nissan 1 and Passover Thursday 24 which makes the feast of first fruit on Sunday March 27 and Shavuot on May 14-15. So now you have two dates for all the feasts according to what calendar is used.
      Bottom line is the question are we there yet?
      The answer is yes! as I would answer to an impatient child strapped to an uncomfortable seat on a long trip to his beloved home he so anxiously desires to arrive.
      Our trip has taken the better part of 5,993 years to arrive, but the marker in the road the State of Israel tells us that the journey is almost over and that our redemption, the redemption of Israel and the establishment of the Kingdom of God on earth is at hand.


      March 26, 2016 at 3:56 pm

      • Yes, but the whole point is that she claims Jesus himself stated it will be on Shavuot, and Shavuot is on June 12 and 13.


        March 27, 2016 at 7:33 am

      • I did not see where she said that Jesus told her in Shavuot. I will look again.

  3. There’s not much to go on at this point; but the following are a few thoughts concerning a possible RAPTURE on SATURDAY, NISAN 1, Apr 9…………1st day of the JEWISH YR (& MILLEN NEW YEAR’S DAY).

    Note that on the Millen calendar below, NISAN 17 will be MARCH 17 & ARIES 17 and if you minus the future tilt loss 23 days back from Apr 9, 2016 (Nisan 1) you arrive back to MARCH 17. So the RAPTURE is on the future FIRSTFRUITS after all!….?

    BIG QUESTION: HOW can NISAN 17 (commanded “beginning of days”/flood end) and NISAN 1 (Millen 1st Day of the Jewish year) be the SAME DAY????……because this APRIL 9 (NISAN 1) is ARIES 17, the Millennial NISAN 17 (see Millen calendar below). Also the SABBATH will be RE-instituted and NISAN 1 this year is SATURDAY…………very thought-provoking, indeed.

    In addition, on Nisan 1, the “Temple is to be CLEANSED” (Ezek 45:18) and WE are the TEMPLE of the Holy Spirit & at the Rapture our sinful bodies will be fully redeemed/’cleansed’ (changed into eternal bodies). It’s a ‘stretch,’ but it may be applicable.

    NISAN 1, 2016 (Sat, Apr 9) is 376 days past NISAN 10, the day the Messianic Kingdom was ‘supposed’ to begin (Palm Sunday) and we as believers have (& ‘would have’) responded positively to that great Palm Sunday HOSANNA day of decision & division; so the 280-day Church spiritual ‘gestation’ could start at NISAN 10, 2015……….still the decision day during the Age of Grace of which we are a part.

    376 is 1 Jewish year (355 days….shana) plus the 21-day tilt that will minus and of course 355 is 280 days gestation +75 days (that will cancel out/balance the post-Return 75 days).

    Very interesting as well is that APRIL 9, 2016 is ARIES 17 which will be NISAN 17 (& Mar 17) in the Millennium (see the Millen calendar below). The Isaiah 63 Temple Entrance 30 days past the Return (+the 2-3 days for earth to straighten) is also ARIES 17 (& the ACTUAL NISAN 17….Apr 8, 2023), the “beginning of days.”

    Below is the probable Millennial calendar of 360 days/straight earth & 4 seasons (“seedtime & harvest” continue):

    Nisan 1…….March 1…….Aries 1
    Iyyar 1,,,,,,,,,April 1………Taurus 1
    Sivan 1……..May 1……….Gemini 1

    Tammuz 1…June 1……….Cancer 1
    Av 1………….July 1………..Leo 1
    Elul 1…………Aug 1………..Virgo 1

    Tishrei 1…….Sept 1………..Libra 1
    Chesvan 1….Oct 1…………Scorpio 1
    Kislev 1………Nov 1………..Sagittarius 1

    Tevet 1……….Dec 1………..Capricorn 1
    Shevat 1……..Jan 1………..Aquarius 1
    Adar 1…………Feb 1……….Pisces 1

    Note that NISAN 1 is ARIES 1 (LAMB/8th sign)…so 1 an 8 (Jesus’ #’s). Also note that NISAN 17 will be MARCH 17 and ARIES 17.

    When one subtracts 21 and 75 days back from the Rapture, the date of JAN 4, 2016 is evident……which is actually 11 days earlier, DEC 24, 2015, the original date of KISLEV 24…..relating to the KISLEV 24 promise of Haggai 2:7, “Desire of Nations shall come.” So when the 75 and the 21 days are canceled (which they WILL be), the Rapture will be ‘as having occurred’ on DEC 24, the original KISLEV 24…….Hag 2:7. In other words, NISAN 10, 2015 plus 280 days Church ‘gestation’ is JAN 4, 2016 which is really DEC 24, eleven days earlier due to the calendar change of the 1500’s.

    The RETURN is PURIM……TUESDAY, ADAR 14, 2023….Mar 7….. (Pisces 17….then +30 days is ARIES 17), the same great historical rescue day of the past (Esther).

    The RETURN minus the tilt loss is SHEVAT 24 (11,888….’judgment via Jesus’) and 30 days later when the 45-day judgment of the nations/Jesus + Remnant enter Temple begins is ADAR 24 (12,12,12….triple perfect gov’t). When Jesus and the Remnant ENTER Jerusalem on ADAR 24 (12,12,12), that Jewish calendar date certainly pertains to the start of the world’s PERFECT GOV’T since MESSIAH Himself enters the Capital of the World initiating the new/perfect Millennial gov’t.

    The RETURN at Purim, March 7, 2023 is PISCES 17, thirty days later is ARIES 17 and trib end 45 days later is GEMINI 1…..the 10th sign (‘completion’) possibly signifying Israel & God (twins) walking together hand in hand in harmony. Gemini could also signify the human race ‘walking’ with God….spec…..Dan 12:12 Blessed is He who waits to the end of the 1335 days (from mid trib); so HAPPINESS & RELIEF define the END of the trib.

    There are 2 possibilities for the 2300 days Temple Desecration (Dan 8:13-14):

    a. TEVET 1, 2017 (Jan 1, 8th day Hanukkah/Temple Dedication) plus exactly 2300 days is trib end,
    May 1, 2023 (trib end w/ the tilt loss). The 7 mths burying preceding TEVET 1, 2017 3rd Temple Worship is 7 perfect/Millen mths of 30 days each…….210 days….. beginning at JUNE 5, 2016, the 6-Day War anniv (Ezek 38 Victory?)……..approx 1.5 mths of world chaos/N. Invasion of Israel past the Rapture.

    b. Oct 24, 2016 (Tishrei 22/Shemini Atzeret/Simha Torah) plus 2300 days (+3 mid-trib uncounted) is May 1, 2023, trib end (w/ the tilt minus). 7 mths burying preceding Oct 24, 2016 could be APRIL 11, 2016, the Ezek 38 Divine Victory in Israel (?), just 2 days world chaos/N. Invasion of Israel past the Rapture.

    If a Passover lands on a Wednesday, then the SUNDAY (when the COUNT can begin) would be NISAN 18. Well, that is possibly the case at the ISA 63 Temple Entrance on SUNDAY, Apr 9, 2023, even though SATURDAY, Apr 8 is the actual NISAN 17…..the “beginning of days” according to flood end/Gen 8:4.

    That would be the Temple Entrance date IF earth’s straightening takes 3 days instead of 2 days. The same goes for the date of Sat, APR 9, 2016 (possible Rapture) which is closer to Aries 18 (which will be the Millen Nisan 18….SUNDAY, when the count begins; but for intents & purposes, the Rapture is ARIES 17 because the earth’s 23.5-degree will be a ‘loss’ of 23.5 days back from Apr 9, 2016 (i.e. March 17, the future, Millen NISAN 17).

    The RETURN in ADAR 2023 is BEFORE NISAN 2023; so the COUNT STAYS at NISAN 2022 which is 6 mths past ROSH/YOM/SUCCOTH 2021, still the LEGAL END of the 6,000 full yrs (120 Jub’s….Gen 6:3) when the 20 yrs are not counted. 2021 is the Hebrew yr 5782……5782″ orig Pyram ht w/ cap, 5782 degrees Kelvin (avg) of the SUN. Also 34 A.D. (Jesus on the cross, age 33.5) plus 1967 yrs is 2001 and 519 B.C. (Haggai) plus 2520 yrs is also 2001. 2001 is actually 6001………..start of 121st Jub/7th Millen.

    W/ all considered, the 7-yr COUNT begins at YOM KIP 2014 (6 mths prior to NISAN 10, 2015) and ENDS at YOM KIP 2021….Lev 25:9….(which is 6 mths prior to NISAN 2022 where the count will STAY since the RETURN doesn’t reach NISAN 2023).

    Also, the mid trib in Sept 2019 (Rosh is Oct 3) is STILL in the ROSH 2018 yr….the end of all the great FIG TREE PATTERNS beginning in 1898: 120, 100, 80, 70, 50……..from 1898, 1918, 1938, 1948, 1968 respectively.

    SATURDAYS (Sabbath): Rapture & Abom of Desol at mid trib………..TUESDAYS (3rd Day): a.c. satanically ‘rises’ and the RETURN (3rd Day, Hos 6:2-3).

    Even though the above is seemingly more ‘folly/spec/brainstorming,’ it just might happen as reviewed!

  4. CORRECTION: The 2300 days Temple Desecration could span JAN 10, 2017 (FAST of TEVET 10) to the trib end at May 1, 2023 (tilt loss considered).

    June 10, 2016 (Ezek 38 Victory?) plus 7 mths burying/bldg 3rd Temple is JAN 10, 2017.

    April 9, 2016 (Rapture?) plus 2 months world chaos/N. Invasion of Israel/Gog Magog) is June 10, 2016, the possible Ezek 38 Divine Victory in Israel.

    • Janet I just finished reading Judith post of timelines and she stated at the end that the Rapture could be April 9 on Saturday next week as your last paragraph states. I hope you are both right. Her study as well as yours are worthy of serious consideration and reflection.
      At the end we may not know exactly but close enough for comfort. Scoffers be warned!
      It is much better to have tried and failed that not try at all!
      Jesus is coming very soon!!!


      March 29, 2016 at 3:59 pm

  5. One more thing: Notice that mid trib (a.c. satanically rises/indwelt by Satan…i.e. Satan ON earth) is LIBRA 1 (Tues Sept 23, 2019). Libra is the sign of JUDGMENT. Tues, Sept 23, 2019 is 1260…… +3 days a.c. dead….. past APRIL 9, 2016.

    Libra 1 in the Millennium (minus the tilt/straight earth) will also be Sept 1, Rosh Hashana/Tishrei 1 each year as above calendar is noted. All seems ‘on schedule.’

    Thanks for the nice comments. You are ONE OPEN-MINDED fellow!! (one of those ‘slow-to-anger’ people?). I’ll check out Judith’s article.

  6. #1480

    We know that the 7-yr trib is not counted (Satan’s yrs) and at the RAPTURE (2016) the count stops and takes up again at the PURIM RETURN 2023. Purim 536 B.C. to 2016 = 1480.

    God’s numbers are eternal & often repetitive and the #1480 in Greek means Christ. The mighty number 3168 is a combination of 800 (Lord), 888 (Jesus) & 1480 (Christ)….LORD JESUS CHRIST…..and from 2016 back to 536 B.C. (Purim) is 1480 yrs……interesting.

    In addition, the Ezek 38 Gog-Magog/Ezek 38 War/Victory may be JUNE 5 to JUNE 10, 2016……matching the dates of the 6-day War.

    As for NISAN 1 events in addition to a possible NISAN 1 Rapture:

    Dedication of Temple during Exodus
    Ezra + exiles return to Jerusalem from Babylon
    Decree given to Nehemiah to rebuild walls of Jerusalem
    Cleansing of the Millennial Temple (Ezek 45:18)
