“l will open my riddle on the harp”

(Psalm 49:4)

Maker of Harps

 

I am a Welshman,

Who brings forth his trade,

Whose craft of the ages,

Bard sages have played.

 

When David made courses,

To fest I was called,

When Princes built castles,

My strings rang the halls.

 

Sycamore and willow,

Bog pine and the yew,

Such trees I will hollow,

Their trunks shall I hew.

 

Be many with gifts,

Some realm'd in the arts,

But I stem from Wales,

  A maker of harps!

                            

 


 

 

 

FORWARD

 

All things are framed upon a chronology of time. There was a time before the founding of the Americas, before the age of modern science and rapid travel, when knowledge began to greatly increase. There was a time before the Renaissance. There was a time before the flowering of Europe and the Reformation. It was called, “the Dark Ages.”

 

Since those days of darkness much knowledge has been recovered and revealed. But a part of that history, going back to the days of ancient times, has never been fully disclosed. Submerged in the ages of the past, it lies buried in the lyrics of Psalm, in the melodies of the harp and the notes of her seven string courses. Symmetry, it is said, is the beauty achieved by the balance of form. And, it is by and through that symmetry that things, long hidden, are profoundly revealed.

 

This is a story of time, history, politics and religion, as viewed through the silhouette of the harp and her seven string notes; Sweet and calm, mysterious, controversial and provocative.

 

Within these pages lies a journey and adventure - a book of discovery, attempting to convey and describe the amazing beauty of the handiwork of God, in His Music of the Appointed Times.

 

My special thanks to Carl Franklin and Fred Coulter, whose research and chronology I have used throughout this work.

THE HARP OF MYSTERY

 

Our story begins with a riddle and mystery. “Out of the eater (lion) came something to eat, and out of the strong came something sweet (honey). “And, I saw another strong angel coming down out of heaven, clothed in a cloud, and he cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars.”

 

Like the mystery of Sampson’s honey from the lion riddle, the strong angel of Revelation 10, who roared like a lion, brought with him a mysterious message, both bitter and sweet. And, “he swore by Him who lives into the ages of eternity, there shall be no more delay. But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound the seventh trumpet, the mystery of God shall also be completed (paraphrased, Judges 14:14 and Revelation 10:1-7).”

 

Now, we have not yet come to the days of the seventh seal and the seventh trumpet, and the finale and revelation of all mysteries of God. But, like the mysterious sevens of Revelation, embedded within the octave modes of the seven string scale of the harp and similar instruments, lies an image - a pattern concealed, a symmetry intertwined with the Biblical text. In the muse of her courses lies a story more amazing than any of Spielberg’s greatest Hollywood blockbusters.

 

Our harp of analogy has no strings, yet her tones of melody and rhythm, fine-tuned and prophetic, span the breadth of the 49 books of the Biblical text, from Genesis to Revelation. From the shadow of her measures comes a silhouette of history. By the spiral of her chords are the patterns of creation. And, by the rhythmic scale are the tones of time itself. She makes no sound, but her voice will stun you!

 

“It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings is to search it out.” (Prov. 25:1-3).

 

Mankind created by and in the very image of God, was endowed with a mind of intense curiosity. And God, in the beauty of the heavens which He created, has provided us with a vast expanse of mystery, from which it is His desire that we pursue a lifelong voyage of wanting to know, to understand.

 

In the age when the second temple stood, history tells us that the ancient Greeks discerned that music and rhythm preceded even the universe, and from this premise of music, mathematics and rhythm, stems the order of the heavens and even the calculations of time itself. 

 

History records that these ancient Greeks perceived arithmetic to be the mother of the sciences. This is witnessed by the fact that geometry, music, and astronomy are dependent upon the numbers of arithmetic, but arithmetic is not sustained by the former.

 

The Greeks concluded that if geometry is taken away, arithmetic still remains. But if arithmetic is removed, geometry could no longer exist. In the same manner, music depends upon arithmetic, but the elimination of music affects arithmetic only by limiting one of its expressions.

 

This ancient culture of science, commonly referred to as the Pythagorean era, also proclaimed that arithmetic had to exist previous to astronomy, since astronomy is dependent upon both geometry and music. The size, form, and motion of the celestial bodies are determined by the use of geometry; their harmony and rhythm by the use of music. If astronomy is suspended, neither geometry nor music will cease to exist; but if geometry and music are eliminated, astronomy is no more. The preeminence of both geometry and music to astronomy is therefore confirmed (Ref: http://www.sacred-texts.com).

 

While it is true that the Pythagoreans, from these concepts, developed a religion and cult of mythical worship, which was surely not of the true God, they did have some truths of probable fact. Of these we can conclude and agree that while heaven (astronomy) and earth may pass away, the mathematics of time, which also forms music and her rhythms, remains. This is because music and her patterns of rhythm are embodied within the emotion and make up of God’s inner being. These attributes of His Spirit, which include music, pre-existed all manifestations of the physical creation.

 

From these patterns, then, we can begin to visualize the evidence of how it is that prophecy and even the Bible itself, the very word of God, was constructed upon the artifacts and principles of musical law. In all that God does, He leaves a beautiful work of art, displaying the majestic evidence of His presence. The music of tones and rhythm, combined with the movements of the heavenly  orbs and the swirled wisps of galaxies, are all parts of God’s mechanism of time and motion, and within these patterns are contained the panorama of prophetic events.

 

Now, there was a time when the universe was a blank canvass, upon which God, from His very inner being, by a master stroke of artistry, painted, in a geometric, three dimensional form of sight and sound, that which became His handiwork of pleasure.

 

Hanging, then, upon His wall, this heavenly universe provides Him a panoramic visual. Also, by the rhythms of musical time, from the motion and energy of celestial bodies, is transmitted the awesome presence of a continual melody, with many notes and chord patterns. From these very patterns, in the realms of both God and man, lives the combined construct of music and time. Any accomplished musician would tell you that music without time is like a clock with no hands.

 

Even the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, as if in the fashion of the scale of music, form a dual tetra chord of seven divisions. The transition of the story, coming after the law, Psalms (music) and prophets, is introduced by the four gospels and the four divisions of the New Testament writings. Therefore, the Old and New Testaments are formed by the 3 + 4 divisions of seven. These are the half-octave parts of the musical scale - a scale which transitions at the place name of the octave spiral, Galilee, in the fall of 26 AD. 

 

So it is, as if scripted by the line, staff and rhythms of nothing more than the simplicity of the seven string notes of a harp or lyre, the Biblical story unfolds. It begins with the book of Genesis and ends with the 49th book, Revelation, seven octaves later. Here, Jesus Christ conveys a panorama of visions, epic in proportion, to the seven swirl loop of the seven churches of Asia Minor, on the coastal lands of Galatia.

 

It was from there, near the close of the first century AD, in the lines of the 27th book of the New Testament, that we find the graphics of the sevens of Revelation, the seventh and last division of the Bible and her musical score. Then, in the closing chapters of this 49th book of the Bible, as if in a pictorial of the repeating octave cycles of music, is described a new beginning. Revelation, a book of 22 chapters, is a 3-octave span and finale of the New Testament age, but also, by her numbers patterns, comes a picture and summation of the entire Old Testament of the 22 original books.

 

From the land of the harp-shaped sea, the region of Galilee, a name which means “to complete the cycle,” was introduced the connecting link of the Greek culture and language - a language used to transmit the message of the gospels to the world at large, in the ages beyond the times of the first century AD.

 

And, from the concept of the repeating circuit pattern of the name Galilee, comes the process, “from faith unto faith” (Rom. 1:17) - to the Jew first, but also to the Greek (gentile). Faith, a gift to man from God, then returned through Jesus of Galilee, back to God, completing the circuit.

 

So, there are many links, layers and metaphors to the circuit, octave name, Galilee, the region where Jesus Christ began His ministry in the fall of 26 AD. There, at the second tetra chord chronology of the fourth of the seven divisions of the Bible story, came the plan and purpose of the word of God, and this by the ministry of Jesus Christ.  

 

In poetic form, the prophet Isaiah wrote of the Messiah, "Those who dwell in the land of the shadow of death, Upon them a light has shined (Isa. 9)". That Light and the message He brought was centered upon the events of His ministry, which, almost without exception, took place on the dates and seasons of the Appointed Times of the lunar calendar events of scripture. These times and events are placed in a pattern overlay, like melody lines straight from the pages and music sheets of the harp and her seven-string notes.

 

Thus, described by the prophetic lines and lyrics of the Psalm of transitions, Psalm 23, from the place setting of the valley of the shadow of death, Jesus and many of His disciples came from Galilee of the gentiles.

 

Many decades later, a remnant of Jesus’ flock would migrate and establish, via the Greek language, a foundation and Scriptorium at Ephesus, Asia Minor-realm of the place names which formed the modes of the early musical scale, and land of the cluster of the seven churches of Revelation.

 

It was here that a crossroads and hub of New Testament activity took place. At Ephesus the scripts of the gospel accounts, the epistles of Peter, Paul, Jude and others, were collected, edited and finally canonized (in Greek) by Jesus’ cousin, the apostle John, last to expire of those who formed the original foundational witness of the ministry of Jesus Christ.

 

The original New Testament text was not finalized by the pen and language of the stronghold at Rome, but on the coastal region of Ephesus, port of anchor for the early church of the first century AD, in a realm where the musical culture evolved and flourished. 

 

One of the place names where Jesus walked was around the waters of the Kinneret, from the Hebrew of an earlier time, meaning harp- shaped, but in Jesus’ day was known as the Sea of Galilee.

 

And, on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, Jesus lived for a time at Capernaum, a name which means the “city of comfort,” as may be felt when one is consoled by the strings, lyrical text and singing of harp and psalm. 

 

About 70 years after Jesus traveled the avian winged contour of the Sea of Galilee, in the visions of Revelation, John saw Him in the midst of seven candlesticks, representing the seven churches in the place setting of Asia Minor, a land bearing the names of the early musical modes, of which it is said there were seven.

 

Here too, in Asia Minor, the sketched outline of the road map of the seven-church loop road, (the seven churches of Revelation), though crude in form, like the shoreline of the Sea of Galilee, also resembles the arc-winged shape of a lyre or lap psaltery (harp). Likewise, even the map outline of the old City of David resembles the rough form of a lap psaltery.

  

Jesus was a descendant of the harper, David, and both Galilee and Asia Minor have links tying their histories to the early development of the harp muse and culture, in concert with the early age of Christianity. Stunning indeed is the overwhelming evidence of the marriage of the musical scale with the prophetic record of the Bible story, from Genesis to Revelation. There will be more on this later, as we progress, but first, we need to survey some foundational facts of world history and religion, as we know it. 

 

In the late decades of the first century AD, it was here, among the churches of Asia Minor, that the foundations of church doctrine and truth were edited, published and historically preserved from the eventual corruption of the greater influence of the Latin world. That world was politically and philosophically controlled by the vast power and seat at Rome, the fourth kingdom of Daniel’s prophecies. Rome was the dominant empire of the world of that age-her influence continuing, yet much alive in our present day.

 

History records that after the decline and decay of this early foundation of Galatia and Asia Minor, the church that emerged by the time of Constantine and beyond bore little resemblance to the assembly that Jesus of Galilee had founded at Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost, 30 AD.

 

As the centuries progressed, the melody from the harp shaped sea was fading, traded and transformed by the evolving discord of another gospel - a musical score nowhere to be found in the Biblical record.

 

 

The Harp of Time and Her Seven Strings

(“Behold, I tell you a mystery: I Cor. 15:51”)

 

“I will open my riddle (mystery) on the harp,” wrote the psalmist (Ps. 49:4). Read either way, the number is 494, the double or octave count of 247, which is the note B of the open string diatonic scale (247 hertz), and also the length, by number of years, of the 247-year Metonic interval of lunar dates.  The 247-year period replicates the same day of the seven-day week on the very same lunar date. That is, the dates of the lunar calendar fall on the very same day of the weekly cycle at intervals of 247 years, which is 13 cycles of the 19-year Metonic, a document of time written in the key of C rhythm flow.

 

This span of 247 years equals 3,055 months, which is 12,888 weeks, sums to 1 + 2 + 8 + 8 + 8 = 27, the number added to the note A at 220 hertz, thus producing the note, B = 220 + 27 = 247 hertz. So, by the sevens of the week, the 19-year cycles and the octaves of the muse of the seven-note scale, many threads all merge to produce the Appointed Times of the lunar calendar. This is quite amazing!

 

By reverse-engineering of the mathematics, the scholars of lunar calculations tell us that the note B (Monday), the 247 of the musical scale, was the calculated weekday of year one of the Hebrew calendar, the theoretical year of creation. As we say, 24/7, it’s all about time and the counting thereof. Fasten your seatbelts. We have just begun to unravel the stunning archeology of these concepts.

 

“He (God) appointed the moon for seasons (i.e. appointed times)” states the verse of Psalm 104:19. Now, the product of the numbers of this Biblical verse of the 15th Psalm of Book four of the Psalms, regarding this primary function of the lunar cycles, is quite incredible, for the product of 104 x 19 = 1,976, and the sum is 1 + 0 + 4 + 1 + 9 = 15, the full moon day. Why is this important?

 

Please remember that we said there is a time-lock reference of music, lunar dates and the seven-day week, and that interval has to do with the number 247, by that span of years. Therefore, the sum of the Psalm being 15, the day of the full moon, and the product being 1,976, which is the octave or eighth multiple of 247; all this is amazing, to say the least.

 

Moreover, this fourth Book of the Psalms correlates with the fourth day of the week (Wednesday) of the Genesis account (Gen. 1:14). Here, on day four, the elements of time were named. In this pattern of 104:19 is also embedded the “0%” of new moon day illumination. Also displayed is the 1 + 0 + 4 = 14, the day of the Passover, “slain from the foundation of the world,” and the number 19, which equals the years in the lunar Metonic cycle of time, with its seasonal adjustments of the 13-month leap year cadence, inserted seven times.

 

Finally, the eighth span of 247 years (1,976 yrs.) is a period of 104 Metonic cycles of 19 years each, or 235 months x 104 = 24,440 months, bearing the number of the day (24) and the first note, world concert standard of music, the note A reference of 440 hertz. Thus, for the present age, we can see that the symmetrical frequencies for music of the open strings have become naturally settled and aligned with God’s counting of the lunar cycles of His Appointed Times. 

 

With respect to the 247-year cycles, there is something oddly coincidental.  At the fourth multiple of Psalm 49:4 (2 x 247 = 49:4), dating from the year 29/30 AD, at the lunar year, 2005/06 AD, for the first time ever was published a version of the English Bible in its original order of the seven divisions of the 49 books.

 

Called, “The Faithful Version,” this publication was framed against the backdrop and seasons of the weekly Sabbath and the seven annual Sabbaths, as described in the story flow of the Biblical text. Published by Fred R. Coulter, a Bible of this type and magnitude had never been done before, and to have such an event take place precisely at the fourth multiple of Psalm 49:4 (1,976 years), in the same 9th year of the Metonic cycle, as was the case of the year of Jesus’ crucifixion-this is amazingly coincidental!

 

The period of 1,976 years is the octave multiple of the 247-year seven-day cycle. Within these timelines of the two Testament translations are the four transitions or regenerations of the seven- division word of God. First came the text in Hebrew, and then in the second generation came the New Testament in Greek. In the 16th century, both Hebrew and Greek, in the third wave of regeneration, were translated into English, from the original Hebrew and Greek texts. Finally, in the lunar year 2005/06 AD came a compilation of all previous works, when, in the fourth generation of the Biblical translations, arranged in the 49 books of the original order, came the unfolding of the Biblical story in a panoramic context, highlighted in the modal aura of God’s  Appointed Times.

 

In the early Greek modes, it is said that the seventh mode of music was the Locrian, named for the region of Loris. This seventh key, formed by a B to B (2-2) note progression, agrees with the lunar calculation pattern symmetry that every 247 years there is a date-to-date lock to the same day of the week (the sevens) as compared to 247 years previous, the same number as the open string, diatonic B note frequency of 247 hertz.

 

 

It is very surprising how this corresponds with the early Greek thought of geometric physics, where the form BB, as in a circle of 2-2, is associated with the number seven. In that foundation of all circular forms, 22/7ths, the early form of Pi (3.142857) is derived from 22, the letters of the Hebrew alphabet and the sevens thread of the Biblical codex. In the 27th book of Revelation, via the Greek and Hebrew, 24/7 and 22/7 are merged. That is, the 24 letters of the Greek alphabet, intertwined with the number 22 of the Hebrew alphabet, together form a text of 22 chapters, highlighted by the number seven.

 

From the time of the prophet Isaiah, of the 8th century BC, the reference to the Greek language and culture flowed in parallel to many historical events of the Bible. Isaiah foretold the chronology of Jesus’ life and His preaching of the gospel to that land of Greek culture, Galilee.

 

From those beginnings at Galilee, the gospel message flowed northward, via the efforts of Paul and others, throughout Asia Minor, with the New Testament finally being canonized in the Greek language, at the focal point of the Ephesus Scriptorium. There, near the close of the first century AD, the message to the seven churches came directly from Jesus Christ, by the 24 letters of the Greek alphabet. Thus, the pattern of script was 247-the Greek text (24) to the seven churches. Here, Jesus specifically identifies Himself as the Greek alphabet, the Alpha and the Omega.

 

As time progressed, these same Greek texts, via the Byzantine, flowed northward into Europe at the fall of Constantinople, 1453 AD. From these texts came the first New Testament translation in English, by William Tyndale, in 1525/26 AD.

 

As we say, it’s all about time, and that number is 24/7, our familiar B note, key of C, 7th note frequency. In musical pattern type, this is the 7th leap year of the Metonic cycle, which began in the fall of 2015.  But, by this pattern of the 24 letters and the seven churches, Jesus began to unroll His scroll of future world events to the apostle, John.

 

Now, as if God is continuing this same thread line of connect with the Greek culture, in our current age of the seventh church, Laodicea, there is a sort of sad irony, front and center to world events.

 

That irony is simply this. The world economic system, as of this writing, is on the brink of collapse, and the world’s eyes have long been locked on one nation where a major crack has been forming, which may finally burst, bringing on a flood of events that will eventually spill out, flowing through the entire world’s banking system. And that nation is, of course, Greece! Given the past connection of the Greeks to Biblical history, it is surely something to watch.    

 

Those familiar with musical terms may recall a chord, called the B7 chord, which overlays the other three musical-like pattern days of the lunar declarations of the first day of the 7th lunar month (Day of Trumpets).

 

Occurring, as if in the key of C, by days of the week, these Tishri 1, seventh-month calendar dates fall on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Monday, or the CEG chord, overlaid with a B7 (Monday). And, just as the seven leap years of the Metonic cycle, by rhythm of placement, follow the cadence scale of the C major, it should be no great surprise that only those days of the week which form a chord harmonious to C major are allowed for declarations of the first day of the seventh month Appointed Time. Hence, even time has been chorded by four weekdays of the seven, so that the tones of time and season are harmonious in their days of declaration.

 

Therefore, the days CEGB (Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday/Monday) are allowed for Tishri 1, while DFA (Wednesday/Friday/Sunday) are voided as possible days. Thus, seven is overlaid upon seven, upon seven, so that all time-keeping maintains a flow of rhythm and harmony, falling on the very same day of the week at the B interval note of 247 years (12,888 weeks).

 

The B7 chord sets the mood of the four-chord structure. It is quite interesting, and to say the least, curiously coincidental, that B (247) and the seven days of the week are locked in synchronous step for 98% of all lunar dates at 247-year periods. Given that the astronomical month continuously varies between about 29.25 and 29.80 days, 98% accuracy is quite amazing and sums to 9 + 8 = 17, a primary number often found in historical and prophetic events. And, according to the musical scale, the number 17 comes to merge with 27, in the 24/7 patterns of the Greek alphabet script to the 7 churches. This is with a specific focus on the time frame of the B7 church, Laodicea. Later, we will discuss more in detail the little graph below, but observe that about the 8 o’clock position, the 17, 27, and the B7 Monday, all merge at the same point, which is 247.

 

 

 

 

 

                           C        D    E          F             G             A         B

1 2 3 4 5  6 7  8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16  17 18 19

 

     “X” = the 7 leap year cycle

 

Note on the spiral graph the straight line, going across the vortex, connecting F and B, and further observe that F is the 11th year of the fourth of the seven leap years. In geometric-speak, pertaining to those things which travel in circles, like time and the musical octave, F11 and B19 connect on a straight line simply because eight solar years comes very close to merging with eight lunar years. So, at the point of eight years the sun and moon come into close alignment, as do they at 11 years.

 

In each case the positions of the two orbs are about 1.5 days apart, at spans of approximately 2,922 and 4,018 days in length, eight and 11 years respectively. The alignment of the sun and moon is even closer at 19 years; therefore the Metonic cycle is a combination of 8 + 11 = 19. Year 11 of the Metonic is then the half-octave and it cuts a line across the spiral to the seventh note, in key of C, which is the note B on the graph. By these analogies, the half octave, fourth seventh church, Thyatira, of the seven churches, falls at F11, the mid octave division of the seven leap years (Rev. 2:18).

 

Nineteen years forms the span of each Metonic cycle. Within each year of the 19, there are seven annual Sabbaths or holy convocations of the Appointed Times of God, for a total of 7 x 19 = 133, for the 19 measures (years) of each Metonic cycle. Psalm 133 (1 + 3 + 3 = 7) is the 14th Psalm of Ascents, attributed to David, a Psalm of harmonious unity, the 27th psalm of Book five, which is a book of 44 psalms.

Likewise, we have another example of a Psalm which is curiously linked, by number, to the imagery of the seven strings and the history of Israel. This is Psalm 147 verse seven. Notice the alignment with the subject of the harp. “Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; Sing praises on the harp to our God (Psa. 147:7).”

 

Now, there are other references in the Scriptures to the harp, but the number imagery here is amazing. The number 147 was the years of the lifespan of Jacob, father of the 12 tribes, and seven is the number of notes in the scale of music. Psalm 147 is an exact multiple of sevens (7 x 21 = 147), and every lunar date of the second lunar month and the seventh lunar month are locked to the same day of the week. This, because 147 is the exact span of the 21 weeks from Iyar to the seventh month, Tishri, and 147 is an exact multiple of sevens and an exact division of sevens. Moreover, 1 + 4 + 7 = 12, and 12 + verse 7 = 19, the lunar Metonic cycle of 12 common + seven leap years. 

 

By analogy, within the 19-year Metonic of 235 months, the divisions of the 12 common and seven leap years form a very interesting pattern, one of amazing imagery. The 12 tribes of Israel are represented by the common 12-month years, amounting to 12 x 12 = the 144,000 of those sealed in Revelation, chapter seven. But, in every cycle, there are the seven leap years, perhaps a representation of the seven churches of spiritual Israel, down through the New Testament age - a mix of Israelite, Jew and gentile. By analogy, perhaps the added 13th month of the seven leap years represents Manasseh, the unspoken 13th tribe of Israel.

 

These seven leap months of a second month, Adar are added seven times in 19 years. They are added in the spring, before the beginning of the 207-day season of the seven months of the Appointed Times. By analogy, these seven leap months of Adar also represent the seven churches of spiritual Israel, with the span of the whole of 19 years being 207 days x 7 = 1,449 days, or 207 weeks of days. In this number pattern is contained those two inseparable books of prophecy, Daniel and Revelation, which are book 20 of the Old Testament and book 27 of the New, respectively. 

 

These seven leap years weave their way throughout the 19-year cycle, coming and going, by the pattern of the C major scale, with the octave of the sevens repeating at the 8th note of the next cycle, year 22, the number of chapters in the 27th book, Revelation and the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet (22).

 

Thus, through these patterns of 22 comes the statement of the prophet Isaiah, regarding Jesus Christ, the One who became the Lamb of the seven seals, “So He shall open, and no one shall shut; And He shall shut, and no one shall open,” (Isaiah 22:22). He holds the key to the mysteries, and He decides when to open and when to close the seals of understanding.

 

Given there are seven churches, perhaps not only literally at the time-setting of Revelation, but also seven church eras down through time, then the last church, by the pattern of the seven leap years, becomes the note B (247 hertz), or seventh note of the scale, Laodicea.

By that measure of analogy, Laodicea is the B7 of church history and flourishes at the end of the age. It is still extant when a time of seven is divided by half (40 and two months), in the book opened in the seven stages of the seven seals, seven trumpets and seven bowl judgments - each wave, as in the octaves of music, doubling or multiplying at the seventh note transitions. In Revelation, there are three sets of sevens, totaling the 21 major events of the seven seals, seven trumpets and seven bowl judgments.

 

B, in the fashion of the half-seven, is a half-division note, cut short and limited. That is, 3.5 years, 1,260 days or 40 and two months (see Rev. 11, the half division of the 22 chapters). This is a hand-to-glove fit with Jesus’ statement of Matthew 24:22 and the time setting of Laodicea. That is, He said, “Those days will be shortened (i.e. limited).” Quite peculiar, this chapter and verse of Matthew, as it overlays with the 24 letters of Greek and the 22 chapters of Revelation (the book with a core reference to the limited, half-cycle of seven years, or 1,260 days). 

 

So, as in the seven pattern of the 19-year Metonic leap years, there are two short notes or spans, represented by the notes, EB, the third and seventh half notes. These BE notes are represented by the number two of the seven leap year cycle (33 2 333 2). The threes represent the whole notes, CDFGA, and the half-steps are represented by the twos, at the EB note transitions. This is the form and scale of the seven leap years of the Metonic cycle (3323332).

 

By analogy, the 5/2 musical scale is similar to the five loaves and two fish of Mark 6:38, with the 12 baskets of leftover fragments the same as the number of 12-month years of the 12 common years of the 19-year Metonic cycle, a cycle made up of 12 common and seven leap years. Thus, we see the overlap of time, music and prophecy, spread about in the significant and prophetic events of the Bible.   

 

By the sevens analysis, students of the Sabbatarian church histories may recall that the “G” church, according to the pattern of Cdefgab, falls at the fifth note of the scale, Saturday, and is appropriately called Sardis, the Church of God Seventh Day (note G of the C major scale).

 

Following this analogy, Philadelphia is the “A” note or 6th church, key of C. Then, as explained, comes the note B, Laodicea, which, similar to the short span of half step B of the musical interval, becomes the dominant church, in the age of the half-seven theme of the 27th book, Revelation. That is, “times, time and half a time”, 1,260 days, or forty and two months (half of seven years).

 

Students of prophecy know this as the Beast era, the half of seven or 3.5 years, in the times of the seven heads and ten horns. In the modern age, this will come to the full in the prophetic times of Paul’s warning to the Thessalonians, when the stealth mystery, at the high pitched octave of time progression, shall have grown to the full at the end of days (11 Thes. 2:8).

 

 

Laodicea, the B seventh church of the end time, is identified, symbolically, in the key of C, by adding 27 to the sixth note, Philadelphia, coming to the last book and testament, the 27th, called, Revelation. Once we have arrived at the full age of Revelation and the B seventh church, then, 247 (B) + 7 heads and 10 horns = 247 + 17 = 264 hertz = Middle C of the open string diatonic for harp. By analogy, middle C is the Beginning and End of the octave cycles of time, patterned by the sevens.  

 

The modern day middle C for piano in the chromatic is slightly skewed off resonance, falling at roughly 262 hertz. We would all agree that the piano makes some beautiful muse, but there is a very slight variant of pitch introduced in order to accommodate the mathematical arrangement of the 12 chromatic tones. Nothing here that is dramatically important, but while the keyboard can be quite pleasing; her tones are slightly removed from the natural voice of the open-string harp lyre.

 

But, in the end of the age, when the seventh church, Laodicea, has come full course, that will be the time of the (2nd) Babylon, in the latter days of the (4th) kingdom and the (7th) head, in the age of the B seventh church. So here we have the pattern (2) (4) (7). These are the times of the (2) witnesses, assassinated on the (4th) day of the half week, in the days when the seventh angel with the (7th) trumpet prepares to sound. Thus we have another 2 4 7.

 

Therefore, by the double imagery, 247 + 247 = 494, we have the seventh note B and the Psalm of mystery (49:4). “The heavens declare the glory of God.” And, again, while our symbolic harp has no strings of touch, yet by the courses of David, “there is no speech or language where her voice is not heard (Psa. 19:1-4, implied).”

 

Laodicea, the B seventh church, is surrounded by the pattern 247. That is, the 247-year cycle of the lunar calendar, the 24 letters of the Greek text, the seven-note scale of the seven churches, and the 247-hertz, note B of the diatonic harp. These all follow in parallel with the events of Revelation and Babylon the Great, threading through many depths and layers of the Bible’s end time prophetic imagery, and the sevens patterns of scripture. Again, in the concept of church eras, many understand that the time of Laodicea falls in many ways upon the book of Revelation, since both are focused on the end time.  

 

An aside note is that Laodicea, as an age of the church, may have already existed for a hundred years or more, though symbolically she continues into the time of the great tribulation, extending to the last era of the church age.

 

It is interesting that in a sequence of 10 notes, key of C, the 10th note is “E”, the other half step of the scale. That is, the half step notes are B and E, Monday and Thursday, by days of the 7-day weekly cycle. So perhaps, even in the scale of music, there is a symbolic metaphor of the short or half steps of prophetic imagery, connecting to Daniel’s Beast of Babylon. MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN - the last word having the literal meaning, DIVIDED, as in the half of seven (Dan. 5:28), or forty and two months. So, the span from the note B to 4th octave C is seventeen (B7 + E10), in the future age of Paul’s warning (11 Thes. 2:9), coming in the latter days of the Beast of Daniel’s 4th kingdom. 

Thus, both B and E, 7 and 10, of the Metonic form of the Appointed Times, key of C, link to the half patterns of the seven -note scale, 1,260 days or 3.5 years (seven divided) - the days of the 7b + 10e = 17, and 7 x 10 = week 70 of Daniel’s prophecy, coming to full age in the book of Revelation.

 

Now, as there are two distinct divisions of the seven-note, 5/2 scale of music, with the half octave falling on the division of the week, (i.e. the note D or Wednesday), in the same fashion there is an obvious division of the seven annual Appointed Sabbaths of God.

 

We know that by the lunar calendar there are the two divisions of what is called the civil and sacred year, each separated by a five or six-month interval or interlude, depending on the length of the off season, fall and winter months.

 

This lapse of Appointed Times in the winter months is so because the lunar civil year begins with the first day of the seventh month, Tishri, in the fall. However, what is called the sacred year or the beginning of the Appointed Times of the first month begins with the month of the green ears of barley, called Abib, or Nisan, falling around the time of March and/or April.

 

Taken from the perspective of the harvest cycles, from the times of the former and latter rains, with the years of the land cycles of planting and harvest, these seasons actually begin in the fall, in the seventh month, Tishri.

 

By that perspective, the annual sevens are divided, with four annual Sabbaths occurring in the fall, followed by the months of winter, then the remaining of the 4/3 division of the seven annual Sabbaths coming in the months, Nisan through early Sivan, ending with Pentecost, which pictures the first resurrection.

 

Therefore, from the civil year perspective, the annual Appointed Times span parts of nine months, from the day of the Tishri 1, seventh month, day of Trumpets, to the ninth civil month and Pentecost of Sivan-from the memorial of the blowing of trumpets, to the first resurrection at the seventh trump, at the half division, 11th chapter of Revelation. In a 13-month leap year this time span is extended to 10 months of the year, though the annual Sabbaths occur in only three of those months, by the order Tishri, Nisan and Sivan. This is the civil year progression, which begins in the fall of every year.

 

Now, the two resurrections of Revelation 20:4-5 are divided by the pattern of the four and three divisions of the seven annual Sabbaths of the lunar civil year. This is the pattern of the octave division of the scale of music and also the 3-4 division elements of the Old and New Testament. That is, four annual Sabbaths in the fall during the month of Tishri, then three more in the spring, spanning the first three months of spring, Nisan, Iyar and Sivan.

This is an amazing parallel, not only as it applies to the music of the harp and the 3-4 divisions of her seven strings, but more importantly as it applies to the stand-alone, 8th Appointed Time, the mid-week division, Wednesday Passover, and, by analogy, the middle wall division of subject in Paul’s epistle to Ephesus (Eph. 2:14).

We have here described Passover as an 8th time, because it is separate from the other seven annual Appointed Times, which seven are all annual Sabbaths. However, Passover is the premiere annual event of memorial from which the seven annual Sabbaths are generated. In Revelation 4:5 are described the seven Spirits of God, Jesus Christ being the energy which drives the seven churches of the Spirit. It is thus said that “the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy,” (Rev. 19:10).

 

This eighth Appointed Time, by type, which is the Passover, is Jesus Christ, Himself. And, by the interlude of the middle wall between the annual sevens (Sabbaths) of note, this day of the Passover is not an annual Sabbath, though it is the all-important pivotal transition of the covenants (covenant = seven, by an oath). Thus here, between the two times of resurrection, is inset the Passover day-the mid-scale, mid-week day of the middle wall division, appointed from the foundation of the world.

 

By analogy, Jesus, through His sacrifice, abolished the middle wall division of the temple court, providing access to both Jew and gentile. Unfortunately, church governments, by methods of administration, may and have often raised again this division of the  middle wall, making a distinction between the equal and the not so equal-an invisible, yet rock solid barrier between the elevated hierarchy and the not so equal, lesser members of the body of Christ. 

 

The apostle James, in the 15th chapter of the book of Acts, addresses this issue in an eloquent way, using the analogy of the small tabernacle (tent) of David. This may be contrasted with the greater temple edifice, a structure which, by the aspect of the middle wall, is divisive. In effect, this is a type of our modern corporate form, which divides and separates by a clinical and legalistic form. But in the years before the temple of Solomon stood, the harper king, David, kept the Ark of Covenant at his residence, in a tent of covering - a place of worship which had no dividing wall, nor great edifice of political or legal separation.

 

Therefore, this division wall of the temple court was a veil rent in two by Jesus Christ, the Wednesday Passover. Jesus Christ, as our Passover, stands as a beacon of light, in the midst of the seven Appointed Times of the lunar year cycle. Though not one of the seven, the Passover is a double of the same number (2 x 7), the 14th of Nisan, the middle bridge between the four annual Sabbaths of the seventh month, and the three remaining Appointed Times, coming to the late spring day of Pentecost of each lunar civil year calendar.

 

The pattern then, is the four festival Sabbaths of the seventh month, plus Passover, then the first and last day of Unleavened Bread, followed about seven weeks later by Pentecost. So, we have, 4 + (the middle wall) + 3 = 8 annual Appointed Times, spanning from fall to the late spring of the next year. This is the annual cycle of the lunar civil year, fall planting to late spring harvest.

 

 

    

     Trumpets   Atonement   Tabernacles   Passover  Unleavens   Pentecost

<----1-----------2----------3------4---------5-------6-------7-------8----->

    <--------Fall, Sept.-----Oct.------ >Winterß---Mar./Apr.---->May/Jun.->

 

In that sense of chronology and analogy, the Passover day is also positioned at the fifth Appointed Time of grace. When Passover falls on Wednesday, this prophetic mid-week occurrence threads, by the seven weeks of harvest, to the 8th day of Sivan, Pentecost. Sometimes called the feast of weeks, on the civil year calendar Pentecost is the seventh annual Sabbath of the Appointed Times of Leviticus 23 and the gospel accounts. Occurring always on Sunday, Pentecost bears the cyclical mark of one and eight, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last. It is the day of the seven weeks celebration and the trumpet blast of the first resurrection.

 

Taken in the pattern of the Hebrew calendar, key of C configuration, the 5th Appointed Time of sequence, Passover, falls at the note G, the Sabbath note of seven, and a sign of covenant. So, by that shadow of number imagery the 14th becomes a double witness of validation (a double oath of sevens).

 

In addition to the 8 distinct Appointed Times which occur in every lunar civil year, there yet remains a ninth Appointed Time, which is, of course, the weekly Sabbath day, a seven which is not confined within any calendar year, but permeates and propagates as a cycle, weaving in and out at a perfect rate of cadence, throughout all times, weeks, months and years.

 

The Sabbath or seven is a time-keeper, and by the recurring measurement of the weekly cycle, brings together the 12,888 weeks of the sevens, on the very same day of the week at the B note frequency of 247 hertz (years). The very fourth commandment itself is a form of the 247 pattern. That is, for a period of 24 hours, the seventh day God declares to be holy time. Again, we have the pattern 24 7.

 

But, the seventh day Sabbath, 9th Appointed Time, is a time constant. All other elements of time have a slight wobble or variable, but the seventh day, from Genesis to the present age, remains the rock of standard. Like a mother hen, the seven-day week hovers about, circling all calculations, keeping together all markers of the passing of time. 

 

But from the view of the Passover, as the middle wall division standing in the midst, by its placement in the civil year of the lunar calendar, the seven annual Sabbaths are divided and apportioned. This middle wall of the annual times of God, though not an annual Sabbath convocation, yet forms a great cloud of witness, hovering above all other times, by the supreme importance of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on Nisan 14. This day was determined by the mid- week, fourth day appointment of the Genesis account, chapter one, verse 14 (see also, Rev. 13:8). It is the day of the Lamb, “slain from the foundation of the world.”

 

 

The Passover is quite unique and separate from the seven annual times that are Sabbaths of convocation. In effect, by separation of type, it is the eighth annual Appointed Time (see Eph. 2:14), the double seven, 14th Passover sacrifice of Jesus Christ, bringing together in one, both Jew and gentile-the 8th Figure, standing amidst the circle of the seven candlesticks of a common spirit, but with mixed nationalities. This is the pictorial of the seven-church history, which was given to the apostle John of Ephesus and written down in chapters 2 and 3 of the 27th book, Revelation.

 

Therefore, in the prophetic year patterns, in which Passover falls on Wednesday 2/7ths of the time, Jesus becomes the mid-week, middle division covenant sacrifice, connecting the 8th Appointed Time of Passover to the 8th day of Sivan, a span of 54 days, the double of two-seven (2/7 + 2/7 = 54).

 

By inclusive count, from the crucifixion of Jesus to the day of Pentecost, 30 AD, was a span of 54 days. The last date noted in the gospel accounts, 10 days before Pentecost of that year, was the half division of 54, the 27th day of Iyar, the day of Jesus’ ascent into the heavens.

 

Thus, the last day Jesus appeared to mankind was the 27th day of the second lunar month, and His next appearance was roughly 65 to 70 years later, when He gave to John the text and visions of the 27th book of the New Testament, Revelation, the 49th Book of the Bible. Revelation is His capstone work to the four gospel accounts, a fifth book to the seven churches, bearing the identity of the three numbers, 5 + 27 + 49 = 81, the numbers of first and last, the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the one and the eight, the number of the circular place name, Galilee. This (81) is the number of the Psalm of the lunar standard of time, Psalm 81, and also the reflective image of the parts per minute of lunar calculations (18).

 

So it happened that the ministry of Jesus, which began in Galilee of the gentiles, but ended amidst the Jewish culture of Jerusalem, on the 27th day of Iyar, 30 AD, was later transferred to the mixed ministry of the Jew and gentile worlds of Asia Minor, Jerusalem and Babylon-to the collective writings, gathered at the scriptorium of the middle wall of the Ephesus, a mid-point transition to the world at large.

 

The work at Ephesus and Asia Minor became the mid-point line of division, connecting the transition of the Old and New Testament writings, from Galilee and Jerusalem to the expansion of the gospel message to the greater gentile world. This came to finale with the writing and conveyance of Revelation, the 27th book of the New Testament, which prophetic text brought together all 49 books of the Bible. 

 

Ephesus was a crossroad and center of New Testament activity. This church, raised up during the travels of Paul, was later joined by John and others. The writings of Peter from Babylon, including also the works of James and Jude, were brought to the Ephesus Scriptorium. This region, then, became the new Jerusalem hub of scriptural activity.

 

 

From the circle around the harp Sea of Galilee, to the Gales of Galatia and Asia Minor, and from the Greek and the Gali of the musical mode lands, the Biblical texts flowed. It began with the seven church circle of Ephesus, to greater Europe, the Celts, Wales, the Netherlands and England. So it was that the writings of the historical melody of Jacob’s Bible have traveled the ages - her cyclical octaves yet ongoing.

CONSTANTINE AND CHURCH HISTORY

 

While touting the concept of Christianity, in his rage of political ambition and hatred of the Jews, Constantine struck a severe discord to the Appointed Times of God, effectively stamping out both the observance of the 14th Passover and the fourth commandment, seventh day Sabbath. These are well documented and published facts of history.

 

Both the 14th Passover and weekly Sabbath are vital to the count and determination of the day of Pentecost. This season of the year holds the foundational elements of repentance and the gospel message of salvation. Therefore, if there is one Achilles heel where the enemy might strike at the trunk of the gospel message, the anchor posts of the Passover and fourth commandment would be the ultimate blow of vulnerability.

 

Thus, by these subversions of the Biblical directive, energized in the days of Constantine, the entire pattern harmony of the Appointed Times of the lunar year, which picture the church harvest to the first resurrection, was effectively destroyed for many believers. In these efforts, the power of Rome struck at the very essence of God’s thought and emotion, attacking statutes which pre-existed time itself.

 

From his rise to power in the fall of 312 AD, it took little more than a decade for Constantine to solidify his base, forging a new and different breed of religion, overspreading his empire. With a calling to congregation of a bishop conclave, and by his pen stroke of executive action at the Council of Nicea, 325 AD, Constantine merged the ancient rites of his pagan fathers with bits and pieces of the New Testament church. The outcome was a hybrid patchwork -a smoke and mirror dance which today the world calls “Christianity.” 

 

Note that the Appointed Times of the seventh day Sabbath, the Passover and Pentecost, have direct paths to the sevens patterns of prophecy, covenants and music - Appointed Times that play a vital role in picturing salvation and the first resurrection, a plan which God evidently envisioned even before the creation of the universe.

 

In retrospect, Constantine’s moves were nothing less than the clever calculations of political action, guided by the forces of darkness. The results are simply this: take away any one of God’s Appointed Times of the Scriptural account, and the melody of the whole becomes muddy and discordant, with the timing and essential road markers of the gospel message toppling like dominoes.

 

“Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Herod,” Jesus told His disciples, (Mk. 8:15). “In vain they worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men,” (Mk. 7:7).

 

By every depth of the analogy, Constantine was the Herod of that age, and his pontiffs were the Pharisees. Together they built a new temple in the city of Rome. This process began at Constantine’s rise to power, on the 247-year cycle, counting from 66 AD. Beginning in that year, it was the subsequent assault of Vespasian, which led to the destruction of Jerusalem and Herod’s temple on the 9th of Ab, 70 AD. So the political and religious parallels of Jesus’ time, and 66 to 312/13 AD, are quite amazing.

 

Indeed, since that fourth century of the gospel age, beginning with Constantine and the Council of Nicea, in the 44th century past the Genesis account, the world was introduced to a new and different gospel, one enforced by political and civil authority, under the guise of a man made religion, assumed by the duped masses to have the stamp and approval of God. Nothing, we shall see, could be further from fact and truth. Jesus’ warning, “beware of Herod and the Pharisees,” was much alive in the three hundreds AD, and remains so to this very day.

 

These are not statements from the high soapbox of judgment upon anyone. Born into this world, we have all been somewhat blind and naïve, subject to the deception, the abuse and the wagging tongues of both religious leaders and crafty politicians. Many, if not most of us, have to some degree followed the traditions of Constantine’s religion. But in this age of increased knowledge and opportunity, our intent is to discover, research and enlighten. Truth and knowledge will make us free, while the religions and politics of men can be great forces of captivity.

 

                      

Assaults against Judea and the Church

 

It was May, 66 AD when Florus, the Roman Procurator, demanded 17 talents of silver from the temple treasury at Jerusalem. By any standard this was an immense sum of coinage, weighing more than 1,700 pounds!

 

This action of Florus incited a revolt by the rebel Zealots. They stormed and secured Fort Antonio, resulting also in the cessation of temple sacrifices to the emperor, Nero. The Roman governor, Cestius Gallus, came down from Syria and attempted to subdue the rebellion. His attempt failed. Gallus and his soldiers suffered heavy losses, after which the army retreated.

 

In those days, voices from the temple inspired Jesus’ church in Jerusalem to flee to Pella of the Decapolis. Meanwhile, the revolt became a direct affront to the power of the Roman government. Of necessity, Nero was compelled to take action against Judea and Jerusalem.

 

Then, in February, 67 AD, Rome sent Vespasian and the Roman army south to invade Judea. Vespasian first subdued Galilee, then drove southward towards Jerusalem and Judea. It was a campaign which would eventually result in the total defeat of Jerusalem and the destruction of the second temple, in the summer of 70 AD. In that year, by the 17th of Tammuz, the siege was all but finished, with the battle progressing toward the burning of the temple on the 9th of Ab, some 22 days thereafter.

 

At that very day in history, when 60,000 Roman troops moved against Judea, the apostle Paul, imprisoned in Rome, was writing his final epistle to Timothy, in mid-66 or 67 AD. Paul made an urgent request of Timothy that he come to Rome before winter, bringing with him the manuscripts which would eventually become part of the New Testament writings.

 

For more than a decade, Paul had not ceased to warn his congregations of the coming abomination and the Mystery of Lawlessness. Both Peter and Jude had issued similar warnings. All of them realized that the window of time for completing the work of the Scriptures was coming to a close. 

 

It was an age of transition for the church Jesus had founded more than three decades previously. The years of the gospel accounts and the foundational writings of the apostles were coming to an end.

 

Coincident with the conquest of Judea, beginning in 66 AD, the first 26 books of the New Testament were being cataloged and collected for editing, as the Roman assault against Galilee and Judea was unfolding. Ironically, against the backdrop of the Roman conquest, in the original order of the Greek New Testament, that which would end up being the last book of placement just before Revelation was the epistle to Philemon, a letter which addressed the very subject of slavery!

 

John, who wrote the fourth gospel account, would, more than three decades later, scribe the fourth and capstone division of the New Testament, which became the last and seventh division of the whole Bible, the 27th book, Revelation. This latter work, John penned as he recorded a panorama of visions, coming directly from Jesus, near the close of the first century AD. 

 

These events of the revolt against Rome, dating from 66 AD, fell at a significant point of beginning on the 247-year, Monday, B note cycle of the Hebrew calendar time symmetry. It was precisely 247 years later, dating from the attacks against Judea, beginning 66/67 AD that another profound and historical event began to take place. This time, it also involved a military conquest, on the heels of which occurred one of the most diabolical coups ever accomplished in the history of the New Testament age.

 

So brazen was the strike of this asteroid of political takeover upon the sea of the early church that waves and sub-cycles of the original event have continued to ripple throughout modern church history. The evidence and stark liturgy of this ongoing subversion remains ever present in the 21st century AD.

 

Ironically, throughout the broad spectrum of mainstream “churchdom,” the aftermath of Nicea and the actions of Constantine are celebrated and remembered as events of triumph for Christians, which fact stands as a sad witness to just how little the religions of the west understand of the word of God.

Coup of the Pontifex Maximus

(Down the Rabbit Hole of Easter)

 

History likes to remember Constantine the Great as the first Roman emperor to look kindly upon the followers of Jesus and His movement, commonly referred to by the world as Christianity. This is the way the play was scripted, but the facts from back stage and between the lines tell a different story.

 

To bring everything into an historical line of context, we need to go back to a time some 300 years before the days of the Emperor Constantine. In the fall of 26 AD, Satan struck at Jesus Christ during the early years of His ministry, offering Him immediate kingship of the world if He would bow down, in effect accepting the office of high priest to Baal. That is, become subject to Lucifer, the sun god, thereby acquiring the gift of a world kingdom. To Satan, this would have been the great and ultimate victory indeed.

 

But Jesus rejected Lucifer’s offer, and that attempt failed miserably. In the early years of the 4th century AD however, the light-bringer found another subject more willing - one who would acquire the grandeur of a world empire, both church and state.  And, one who would become the high priest of Baal, acquiring the title of Pontifex Maximus, while securing for himself the vast kingdom of Rome. But also, from Satan’s view, was obtained the seat and priesthood of the very church once named for its founder, Jesus Christ. This acquired power of Constantine then became a blend of both clerical and civil politics.

 

For more than two centuries Satan had been trying to gain permanent access to the foundational teachings of the churches of God throughout the Roman Empire. Paul conveyed a grave warning of this coming assault in his writings to the elders of Ephesus. “Savage wolves will come in among you,” he said (Acts 20:29).

 

Little more than 50 years after the death of the apostle John, the bishops of Rome began to issue threats against the churches of the Christian nucleus of Asia Minor, seat of the Ephesus Scriptorium and the many congregations of that region. The Roman clergy was already beginning to change Scriptural doctrine, which John’s disciples refused. According to Paul’s warning, the “savage wolves” were circling the flock. However, at that time the Roman church did not yet have the power of civil authority it would later acquire.  

 

As the decades and centuries progressed, the doctrinal conflicts grew between the bishops of Rome and churches to the south, in Galatia and Asia Minor. And, eventually, through the power of Rome, Satan found a way to officially establish a stronghold, via the force of both church and civil government. Heretofore, though the government of Rome surely had persecuted the church, it had made no official move to control the internal workings of the New Testament church doctrines. But that was about to change.

 

 

Among other evils, this form of secular state control, for all time thereafter, injected the virus of a lofty, top down, hierarchical form of government, which yet flows directly through the doors of many church congregations to this very day. Rome set the standard, and this ugly disease of government, in direct opposition to the words of Jesus (Mt. 20:25-27), yet occasionally raises its head, even sometimes in congregations of the very church that Jesus founded.  

 

After Constantine’s victorious battle against Maxentius in the fall of 312 AD, he then became the Supreme Emperor, presiding over the entire realm of Rome. He defeated Maxentius in late October of 312, which means his first year of ascent would span the lunar year, 312/313 AD of solar chronology.

 

History has left us with varied stories of Constantine‘s supposed vision of the sun, combined with a mysterious sign of the cross. The so-called sun cross, or sun dog is, of course, a naturally occurring phenomenon, which can take many forms, but frequently has the star like cross or X figure. This is the form that is seen in the Celtic cross, and in other cultures that well predate Christianity.  It most often occurs when the sun is low on the horizon, near a 22 degree angle.

 

But exactly when Constantine had the vision of a sun cross, and what he believed it to mean is unclear. What is well documented, however, is the vision’s association with the evolved cult of the Sol Invictus, which had become quite popular among soldiers of the Roman army of that day. This term, Sol Invictus, referring to the “unconquered sun”, was a patron slogan of soldiers. By the 3rd century AD, “Sol Invictus” was well embedded in the military culture, inscribed upon shields of combat, and also used in the minting of coins.  

 

An obvious extension of the long established worship of the sun god, Baal, the phrase “Sol Invictus” became a familiar battle cry, when soldiers in times of war appealed for the help of their invincible god, the sun (Baal).

 

So, for Constantine to say that with respect to his conquest of rival, Maxentius, he had a vision from God, embodied in the sun, with the command to conquer under the sign of the cross is, to say the least, highly suspicious. To invoke such a scenario of vision was all too coincidental to the inspiration of his soldiers, who were well accustomed to sun worship in times of battle. Moreover, the symbols of both the sun and cross were already emblem relics of mystery religions which long predated the time of Christ.

 

But, it appears there were two parts to Constantine’s experience with the sun, one a vision that both he and his army saw while at a pagan temple of Apollo in Gaul (France), 310 AD, but also a dream which occurred in 312 AD, just before his battle at the Milvian Bridge.

 

In any case, Constantine and his army witnessed a sun halo in the spring, which is a natural phenomenon that most often occurs in that season of the year.  This was a double-ring halo, with rings of three pseudo suns arranged in cross-formation around the sun. Apparently the visual had a light-cross in the center. The dream reportedly occurred in 312 AD, just before Constantine faced Maxentius.

 

So, recapping, it seems that Constantine and his army had a vision in 310 AD in France, and then Constantine had a dream in 312 at Milvian Bridge. Constantine initially took the vision to be from his pagan god, Sol, but reconsidered after consultation with Christians in his entourage, concluding that the two signs came from God.

 

These scenarios are open to speculation. We have no sure way of knowing the exact chronology of these events, especially since occurrences of the so called, sun cross, is a fairly common phenomenon; in the end result, the important point of question is, what was the outcome of his life and office? And, with respect to the word of God, did his actions follow the clear doctrines of the Scriptures? As we shall see, the answer is a resounding, no!

 

By the time of Constantine, the venomous doctrines of Satanism had already begun to ebb and flow into the early church of the Roman Empire. Constantine, then, seized the opportunity to legalize this mindset. As we have stated, like other Roman emperors before him, Constantine was automatically adorned with the office and title Pontifex Maximus, a throwback to religions of Rome, when the college of the priests of Baal worship were known by the title Pontiff. Among the duties of the Pontifex Maximus was oversight of the events of the annual calendar.

 

In any case, the chief or high priest of the pontiff order of the college of the Baal order was the Maximus or high pontiff. Therefore, by acquiring the title, Constantine became both priest and king of his empire, with its plethora of religions and a multitude of deities. As high priest of the pontiffs, for political advantage, he also touted and embraced the growing interest in the religion of Jesus Christ. Like Herod the Great, who remodeled and expanded the second temple many centuries earlier, religion was just one of the tools that Constantine included in his solidification of power. He had many religious views to appease, but Christianity was becoming a religion of note, to be used for political advantage.

 

Because of his unquestioned position of authority, he had the opportunity to mix heathen worship and tradition with state government, all combined and sold under a growing and popular movement that came to be known as “Christianity.” Jesus Christ originated His church in 30 AD, but about 300 years later, the Emperor of Rome presumed to define and set church doctrines. In that regard, the views of these two men, Jesus Christ and Constantine, could not be divided by a broader line of disagreement. 

 

To the Roman populace, Constantine was the symbolic beast slayer, the warring soldier, Mithras, who killed the bull, as his sun god looked on. Mithras, said to have been born about December 25th, the week of the celebrated winter Solstice, was an icon figure which embodied many cultures of worship.

 

 

As Emperor, Constantine was revered as a god, leader, politician and soldier of conquest for the sun god. He fulfilled many aspects of the Mithras type. And, as if right on time, in his year of ascent, spring of 313 AD, Easter, the day of the traditional resurrection of Mithras, soldier of the sun, occurred on Sunday, March 30th, just after the full moon of Saturday, March 29th.

 

The so-called “Good Friday,” the supposed day of the crucifixion of Mithras, fell coincident with the 14th Passover day, Friday, March 28th. This “Good Friday” pattern had also appeared in the lunar equinox Easter cycles of 66 and 67 AD, when the beginning of the assaults against Judea occurred, with eventual conquest of Jerusalem and the burning of the second temple, 70 AD.

 

Such chronology of Constantine’s day was a hand-to-glove fit, used to further promote the false teaching of a Friday crucifixion and Sunday resurrection of Jesus, totally in opposition to the gospel accounts and the established facts of lunar calendar calculations.

 

To the pagan worshipers of Rome, the sacrifice of Jesus became mixed and blended with Mithras, the Sol Invictus and the religions of the pontiffs. Ironically, in the spring of Constantine’s ascent, these bait and switch doctrines fell upon God’s Appointed Times of Passover and Unleavened Bread. And, true to form, the ancient rites of the Sol Invictus became the little lump of leaven, which eventually grew to permeate the whole of mainstream Christianity. 

 

Indeed, the leaven of Constantine’s mythical doctrine has now expanded, filling up the church loaf to the tune of more than 2 billion believers, spread throughout many denominations, ready annually to greet the Emperor’s rising sun on the Sunday morn of the goddess Easter - just one of the many deities impregnated by the sperm of Occult doctrines.  

 

It had taken 247 years from the assaults against Jerusalem and Judea of 66/67 AD, until the outset of the cunning subjugation of the church through Constantine. His foundation had been laid, with “Christianity,” through and by the power of Rome, defined and enforced. The sun god Baal had his man, and the timing and imagery of the coup and entry of the Pontifex Maximus could not have been more perfect.

 

With our human perceptions we will never fully know the motives and intent of Constantine, with respect to his belief in the true God. Was he just another unwitting servant of Satan, like so many men of politics, with a certain knowledge of God, but filled with vanity and arrogance, making lofty speeches, shaking hands, kissing the babies, winning battles, dropping the name of God, etc.?

 

Or, were his acts very much perpetrations of deception, in which he had perfect knowledge of how to manipulate the masses for personal gain? If so, touting a belief in God was just another convenient and political ploy. We cannot judge his every intent, but what has surely been documented is that his actions have inflicted great harm to the way, truth and life of Jesus Christ, His message and the word of God. Jesus said, “Consider their fruits,” and many, if not most of Constantine’s fruits produced nothing of value, with respect to promoting and preserving the truths and love of God.     

 

By his authority as high pontiff, acting as both emperor and priest, Constantine’s edicts would be inferred upon all religions of Rome. Due to the growing political popularity of Christianity, Constantine soon decided it should be chief among state-approved religions. As high priest (Pontiff) of state, he set about to define, doctrinally, what the Christian church should be, thereby literally becoming the first pope of the universal church of the Roman Empire.

 

But unlike the righteous king, Josiah of Judah, who, when he wanted to return to the worship of the true God, looked first to the word of God and the prophets, Constantine did not seek to know the teachings of the foundational apostles of Jesus Christ, but turned rather to the traditions of the college of sun worship.

 

And, unlike the apostle Paul, who ministered God’s way of love to all men, regardless of race, Constantine turned first to an arrogance of ethnic cleansing. Where Paul had said that unto the Jews were committed the oracles of God, Constantine set about to destroy all reference to the Jews and the primary doctrines of the church founded by the Jew, Jesus Christ. 

 

As might be expected of the high priest of the sun god, Baal, one of the first orders of business was to establish, venerate and impose upon all religious worship, the day of the sun. Without question, this requirement would also be dictated to New Testament Christians, who, theretofore, according to the gospel accounts and the example of Jesus, always observed the seventh day Sabbath.

 

Since coming out of Egypt, the tribes of Israel, including Judah, had always observed the seventh day, according to the fourth commandment.  But, in order to convene his personal form of a hybrid “Christianity,” Constantine set about to abolish the very first in order of the Appointed Times of God and Jesus Christ -times first mentioned in Genesis 1:14 and Genesis 2:2, more than 4,000 years before the Emperor became the Maximus Pontiff.

 

At the time of Constantine, it had been 1,800 years since Jesus Christ, then God of the Old Testament, thundered the Decalogue from the burning mount. But, within eight years since taking office, Constantine banished the fourth commandment and invoked the traditional day of Baal worship, the day of his venerable Sun.

This, he made a law of state, subject to punishment if violated.

 

Please remember, innocent as it may at first seem that man should choose another day other than the seventh day of the fourth commandment of God, the worship of pagan deities, from the days of antiquity, have ever been connected with Sunday worship.

 

So, there is direct connection, going back to the time before the days when God began to deal with ancient Israel, which follows along with the way God outlined the 10 commandments. God knew where the sinful practices of the heathen nations would lead. Most of us tend to believe that Sunday keeping, if at all a perversion of law, is a fairly minor infraction against God. But God well knew the pitfalls and results of this seemingly innocent foot in the door. The progression or incrementalism of this pattern is at the center of the current destruction of the United States.

 

All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. The apostle James summed it up by saying, when we break even one commandment, then we are guilty of all. Thus, in the New Testament age, the laws of God are still in force, or else it would not be possible to sin. Those of us getting on in years well understand the weakness and sins of the human flesh. None are guiltless, no, not one.

 

There is a link between the 2nd, 4th and 7th commandments, which involves worship of idols (the Baals), and the 2nd commandment. Then, the next progression is Sabbath breaking (the 4th commandment); then follows sexual perversions, especially the broken covenant of 7th commandment.

 

Once again, here is the familiar pattern, 2 4 7, and it has to do with perversions of sex, breaking the 4th commandment, and the breaking of covenant. The bond of marriage links directly with God’s 7th commandment of covenant (a seven oath). The breaking of it, and all other sins, requires a sacrifice of payment and redemption. This is typed by the mid-week, Wednesday Passover, and the half division of seven, which, by the cyclical octave, is the number 4 (i.e. the weekly Sabbath of the 4 commandment). So, there is a specific link between these three commandments of the Decalogue.

 

In the very midst of the 2nd commandment, God speaks of a 3-4 division of the generations and His punishment thereof. This flows through to the pattern and sins of the 4th church, Thyatira, the Wednesday (4) division of the seven churches. That church allowed perversions, both physical and spiritual, for which Jesus’ warning was most severe, if they did not repent. 

 

Repentance from sins and covenant breaking (an oath or seven) requires a sacrifice of payment, which is the division of seven, or the mid-week, Wednesday Passover. So, in this is the pattern of the Wednesday (4) Passover and the subsequent Sabbath day of Trumpets declaration (7), which is why we sometimes speak of this sequence of 4-7 as a prophetic year.

 

It is then a hand-to-glove fit that in the year of the exodus, God made the old covenant with Israel, thus the year was marked by a day 4 Passover and a civil year, day seven (Saturday) for Tishri 1. Close to 1500 years later, the Husband of this marriage covenant, Jesus Christ, died in 30 AD, and a new covenant was then offered. This was also in a year when the Hebrew calendar calculations again produced the numbers of sacrifice and covenant, 4-7 (Wed.-Sat.).

 

Therefore, in these many, many patterns it is not difficult to understand that a refusal to acknowledge the Hebrew lunar calendar, along with the directives and observations of Leviticus 23, then becomes covenant breaking, with all the eventual curses that follow. The 10 commandments were the center piece of the old covenant, letter of the law agreement, which was then carried over into the New Testament age, but with an amplified spiritual requirement, made possible by the comforting gift and support of the Holy Spirit.

 

Sunday keeping threads back to idolatry and Sun worship, which then connects to sex sins, as happened with ancient Israel, when they were drawn into immorality via the rituals of Baal worship. Even wise Solomon was taken in, by his obsession with a thousand women and their various religions of the Occult. The landscape of Jerusalem became saturated with groves of the male obelisk and prostitution (i.e. religion of the Baals). Sexual perversions ran rampant. The symbol of Sol was rudiment to these religions, which, over the centuries, spread into the Celtic cultures of Western Europe and into the Americas. Yes, the name of Jesus in on the modern church door, but inside the worship is a hybrid mix of the old ancient rites, most always linked to the day of Sol’s Sunday. 

 

The veneration of the sun god and his goddess, Easter (Ishtar, or Isis), has always been centered upon Sunday worship, from which flows other holidays of the Occult. Consider the moral landscape of America and other western nations of today, and an all too familiar pattern is there, ever descending to the abyss of social destruction and moral decay. We don’t like to admit it, but all the facts of history provide a plethora of screaming witness.

 

So, this edict of the day of the sun was vigorously enforced by Constantine and his pontiffs, and many nations since, declaring themselves to be Christian, have walked down this slippery slope. The Romans proclaim they have changed the laws to suit their fancy, and Protestants affirm there is no law at all. Wow! Is that ever having the cake and eating it too.

 

Constantine’s Sunday standard was in sharp opposition to the directive of the apostle Paul, who, in Hebrews 4:9 specifically addressed and confirmed the continuing necessity and obligation of every Christian to observe the seventh day Sabbath of Old and New Testament doctrine. The English translators used the general term “rest,” but the Greek word of Hebrews 4:9 emphatically states, “Sabbath keeping”.

 

But forbidding the Sabbath commandment and the establishment of worship on Sunday was only the first act of Constantine’s fundamental transformation. Not many years after his rise to power, in the same breath of history, 325 AD, the priest emperor and his drone bishops publicly denounced the most important of all annual observances, the very Passover of Jesus Christ, Nisan 14.

 

Paul, in the age of the apostles, had written to the church at Corinth, regarding the supreme importance of the recurring and solemn memorial of the Passover observance of Jesus Christ. This, Paul stated, he had received from the Lord, indicating an observance “in the same night in which He was betrayed,” (I Cor. 11:23). The reference was to the eve of the 14th of Nisan - a memorial which could fall on different days of the week, based on the lunar calendar.

 

But Constantine had another idea, one reckoned at a different hour, on a different day, and based not on the lunar calendar at all, but on a time determined by rites of the equinox, on the rising of the day of the sun. This directive of Rome the world yet follows. In lieu of the Passover memorial of Jesus Christ, both the Roman church and her Protestant offspring blindly observe the day of the Easter sun. 

 

Though Constantine asserted far and wide his belief in the God of the Christians, the records of history make it more than apparent that he was still very much a lover of all things connected to the long established traditions of sun worship. This fact is profoundly evident. Again, Jesus said, “you shall know them by their fruits.”

 

Then, drawing from ancient rituals of Occult practice, with the passing of time, the Emperor’s Roman-based religion, along with his lesser pontiffs, began to forbid the observance of the 14th lunar date memorial of Jesus’ death, promoting and enforcing instead the observance of the day of the goddess Easter - embodying all the trappings of her springtime rites of fertility. Now this quacking duck indeed bore the name “Christian,” but truly had few feathers of the original and true identity.

 

Thus, as if in the recurring pre-types of the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, on the 247-year cycle, dating from 66/67 AD, in 312/313 AD the armies of Lucifer struck again; this time in the person of the priest king, Constantine. Therefore, that which was once holy - the body of the very church that Jesus founded, was invaded, overpowered and subjugated.

 

In those days many were flocking to the storefront of Christianity. And though in name, Constantine left the store face to the Lord intact, he gutted and restocked the shelves inside, repackaging most major points of doctrine. Yes, the name on the door was dedicated to Jesus Christ, but inside was a stunning altar devoted to Baal. And, to this day continues the mass and sacrifice of Mithras, with a conclave of many presenting themselves in a throng of community. 

 

Though Jesus’ church remains much alive, it is a small flock. And, since the times of Constantine and the Council of Nicea, 325 AD, it has been far removed from the seat of Rome and those who have followed her traditions.

 

The outcome of Constantine’s influence remains a tradition and work of political quackery.  And in the centuries following 325 AD, like the travel and wanderings of the Star Trek “Voyager,” this creature has walked the road of time, garnering the patchwork of her identity. Upon her, many duck signs were hung, dangling from the waddling edifice, so much so that over time she became accepted as the genuine article, remaining colorfully feathered to the present day.

 

 

We do not know his every motive and intent, but a more shrewd and clever coup shall never best that which was accomplished by Constantine. Sitting on the throne of world power, ruling over a vast empire which had long been thoroughly entrenched in the worship of pagan deities, the Emperor inherited the supreme title of Baal worship, Pontifex Maximus.

 

Thus, not only did he become both king and priest of Satan’s Babylonian system, but by sleight of hand, he imposed Lucifer’s control and brand upon the very name of the church once founded by Jesus Christ. And though he had already well proved his ability in the battles of war, now he had become a chief crafter of political transformation through religion, and that which he envisioned eventually spread north and west, traveling the centuries until his doctrine has extended to every continent of planet earth. Realizing the power of religion as a magnanimous force, the basis of Constantine’s energy can be summed up in a simple statement, “let us make God in our own image.”

 

To transform his acquired state of the Roman Empire, he used one of the oldest tricks in the book, a method yet very much employed by current day politicians to forge and achieve their so-called “social justice.”

 

In order to bring about his transformation, Constantine invoked the race card of hatred against the Jews, citing the need to move away from all things connected to their identity. Every politician knows that the force of any agenda is greatly multiplied when race prejudice can be used as a tool. Since the weekly Sabbath and Passover were times foremost of those observed by both Jews and early Christians, such days of worship were chief among those which the Emperor begin to attack. Once those two primary observances were subdued, to the world at large, all other Appointed Times of the Bible would simply begin to fade away.

 

Throughout the ages, many have learned the hard way that when a politician expresses a desire for a fundamental transformation of government and social practice, almost without exception the demonization of certain groups of people ensues.  After that follows excessive taxation, fines, harassment, threats, criminalization, prosecution, imprisonment, and/or death. At the same time, such politicians typically grant preferential treatment for those who support their agendas. In the age of WWII, the dictator Adolph Hitler well employed these same tactics. And, as history tends to repeat itself, these cycles are alive and active in our world of the 21st century.

 

These oppressions are brought against any race, religion and/or any political view which is in opposition to the agenda of state and/or church government. As was the case of Constantine, many who occupy higher seats of political office see themselves as having the right of power over all facets of society. The acts of men like Nero and Caligula have little brilliance of shine over their political types of the present age.

 

Regardless of the established standards of civil constitution or the directives of the Scriptures, such men believe they have an unquestionable, unilateral right to abruptly change whatever strikes their whims, and behind them will always be found a long line of lesser pawns and pontiffs, ready and eager to ride their wave of tyranny.

 

At the time of Constantine, most all Christians lived within the bounds of the Roman empire, and the emperor claimed his right and authority as Pontiff supreme, dictating every major doctrine of how, when and where one should worship. While worship of God was touted, such worship was required to be in accordance with the Emperor’s doctrines.

 

There were some few exceptions, but until the age of the founding of the British colonies in America, most societies where Christianity was said to exist, throughout the ages, continued under Constantine’s form of government, where the clergy, assisted by the power of state, meddled in the rights of individual worship. The Protestants and the Reformation brought something far less than a fix for the excesses and brutal persecutions of Rome. 

 

Remember, even the Church of England, in the age of enlightenment and Reformation, continued to persecute all who did not conform to the religious dictates of the monarchs and clergy. Tens of thousands suffered under their new religion, which brought few things new, but was merely a continuance of Roman dogma, with a new man to wear the popish hat. With the exception of Rhode Island, even the early colonies began to be founded under this same power of state over church.

 

However, Roger Williams of Rhode Island, working with his cousin, Oliver Williams Cromwell of Britain, was able to secure a safe haven for freedom of religion in new world of the Americas, which foundation later resulted in the first amendment of the Bill of Rights. It was still a difficult road, finding a way to religious freedom, but had it not been for the efforts of those two men, things could likely have been much different for the United States, with respect to the right to worship God without external interference. 

 

But in his continuing office as priest king, Constantine, in disagreement with the words of John’s first epistle, even convened a council to define the very nature of God as a mysterious triune, a three-in-one borg of complexity. This was despite the plain scriptural definition that describes only two Individuals in the God family, each commanding the power of that which is called the Holy Spirit.  

 

In effect, Constantine had acquired the highest altar of false religion, moving it into the midst of the early church. But, a remnant of Jesus’ flock escaped his assaults, and the true church survived the serpent’s bite. But today, fully one-third of humanity, under the banner of Christianity, yet follows to the letter the Emperor’s doctrines.

 

Thus, the Pontifex Maximus yet reigns through the color of his craft, which veins of doctrine have flowed into literally thousands of denominations. And through his disciples, the crowd pleasers of the pulpit, they are hired by the masses of humanity, which swoon with their melody of philosophical song.   

 

The outcome and product is a great mystery, which the Scriptures call “the Mystery of Lawlessness.” The beast avatar described in the book of Revelation has moved about, throughout the pages of history, and the woman of false religion, mother Babylon, sits astride, directing his actions. In vain they proclaim a worship of Jesus Christ, while following wholesale the traditions and doctrines crafted by men. To be fair, Rome is only one part of this Babylonian system, though throughout history her doctrines have been a major force of rule over many nations.

 

Unbelievable as it may be, these edicts, enforced by Constantine and his successors, in direct violation of Old and New Testament teachings, remain front page and foundational to the cornerstones of mainstream Christianity, philosophy and humanism.

 

In one clever move, Satan had secured for himself all religions of western civilization, including even the vast majority of all churches that call upon the name of Jesus. This Emperor had acquired total control of the state church of Rome, and through his office as supreme priest, he set about to replace Jesus Christ as head of the church.

 

In recent centuries, Rome published her challenge to the Protestant movement, pointing out that Sunday worship is solely a doctrine derived from those ancient days of her empire.  This is absolutely true, because Sunday worship is nowhere to be found in the text of the Old Testament, and surely nowhere approved by Jesus or His original apostles and disciples of the New Testament age.

 

Sunday, the Church of Rome affirms, is solely a day of their creation. Therefore all Protestants, if they want to follow the rule of scripture, Rome states, should observe Saturday, thus keeping their feet off the day of the Roman directive (ref. “Rome’s challenge to the Protestants,” 1893).

 

This, the church of Rome has long preached and published, with not so much as a tremor of embarrassment. Protestants, also refusing the written and spoken words of Jesus Christ and God the Father, have been quite content to follow down the same road and path which Rome skillfully laid.

 

Yes, in the age of Reformation, they protested a bit, but in the end drank a watered down version of the same old drink, poured from the original pitcher, mixed by Constantine and his pontiff underlings, dating to the original mass and incense of the 300’s AD.

 

These facts of history, taken from the ancient scrolls of religious scholars and a myriad of chronicles from earlier times, are openly available on the online cyber waves and throughout libraries the world over. But, few have time to be bothered with such trivia, their view pretty much conveyed in a yawn of passive attitude. For most, the overwhelming response to these records of history is summed in one short sentence:  “what difference, at this point, does it make?”

 

Had it not been for the small fortress of the apostle John and the elders of the Ephesus Scriptorium, the true histories, Biblical texts and doctrines of the original church may have become so altered as to be virtually lost - entombed within the coffin of politics and

 

rubble of religious corruption, well wrapped in the sarcophagus of manmade ideologies and mystic philosophies.

 

The early clergy of Rome bedded with many politicians, civil authorities, philosophers and medicine men. The outcome was a strange offspring, a hybrid child of religious patchwork, which seed has grown and multiplied to a large family - a genetically modified organism of modern community.

 

The shrines of this new creature have spread throughout the western cultures and beyond. The doctors of her philosophies yet hover over the mysteries of this ancient child of lawless mysticism. The masses eagerly flock to the pulpits of her college of lesser pontiffs, spread abroad through the many flavors of Christendom.

 

Unknown to the populace, they are the guardian priesthood of many Occult secrets. Drawn from the mysteries of ancient Babylon, these secrets were packaged and renamed, replacing the framework of the original gospel, first preached by Jesus Christ, then published and spread from the Greek texts of Asia Minor. These mysteries are the legacy of the great Constantine and his pontiffs. Thus, the offspring of this philosophy, through the centuries, has migrated and spread to the ends of the earth.

 

And, now, in the current age, on the timeline of the lunar civil years, counting from the 17th year of this Metonic cycle (2013/14), the coup of 313 AD occurred exactly 1,700 years previous to the lunar civil year 2013/14, the year of the formation of the terror group, ISIS. These are familiar numbers of prophetic significance. That is, by whole digits, the dragon had 7 heads and 10 horns, hence 7 + 10 = 17 (Rev. 12). True, coincidence is always possible, but the number patterns are disturbing, to say the least.

 

At the Easter mass of 2014, came the words of the outright worship of Lucifer. Few noticed, but consider what happened in the first year of the current Maximus, 2013/14.

 

Francis was elected on the Ides of March, 2013, thus, by chronology his first year of ascent would be counted from the next and successive year of the Metonic, the 17th of the cycle. Though he resigned, the reign of the previous Maximus would be counted until the end of his year, Easter of 2013.

 

Thus, from the coup of 313 AD until the reign of the current Maximus began, was exactly 1,700 years, beginning in the 17th year of the current Metonic cycle (2013/14).

 

From the time that Constantine came to power, it took only about 12 years for him to declare illegal the observance of the fourth commandment, seventh day Sabbath, and the memorial of Jesus’ death and sacrifice, the Nisan 14th Passover day. As previously discussed, Sunday and Easter, then, in opposition to the Sabbath and Passover, became state law, with severe punishment for any who dared oppose.

 

With the passing of time, things become removed from context. Few today realize that many religious traditions are coupled to the authority of the daily calendar that we use. Long before the coming of Jesus Christ, the Caesars acquired the title and office of the Pontifex Maximus, from the priesthood of the college of Baal worship, which administrated the rites of many deities. In 381 AD this title was passed back to the Roman church and assumed by the Pontiff (popes).

 

Little do we stop to realize that one of the primary oversights that follow this title is that of calendar management and its declarations. This simple truth explains how the Occult celebrations then flow, by the calendar of the Maximus, to our daily lives. Though it produces an accurate tracking of the solar cycle, the long standing Gregorian calendar, with its obvious religious overtones, continues by the authority of the office of the Pontifex Maximus, to this very day. Remember too, maintenance of the solar calendar has typically been highlighted by the need to maintain the season of the vernal equinox, Easter, with no concern for an accurate declaration of the Nisan 14 Passover of Jesus Christ.

 

It then becomes obvious how the original church of God was subjugated by this primary tool of worship, the calendar. This is not hidden knowledge, but only understood when viewed in context. Historians have long written that the main duty of the Pontifices was to maintain the peace of the gods.

 

Wikipedia has gathered from many sources a list these duties and we quote some of them here:

 

“The immense authority of the sacred college of pontiffs was centered on the Pontifex Maximus, the other pontifices forming his consilium or advising body. His functions were partly sacrificial or ritualistic, but these were the least important. His real power lay in the administration of jus divinum or divine law; the information collected by the pontifices related to the Roman religious tradition was bound in a corpus which summarized dogma and other concepts. The chief departments of jus divinum may be described as follows:

 

The regulation of all expiatory ceremonials needed as a result of pestilence, lightning, etc.

 

The consecration of all temples and other sacred places and objects dedicated to the gods;

 

The REGULATION OF THE CALENDAR; both astronomically and in detailed application to the public life of the state;

 

The administration of the law relating to burials and burying-places, and the worship of the Manes or dead ancestors;

 

And the regulation of the public morals, and fining and punishing offending parties.

 

The Pontifices were in charge of the Roman calendar and determined when intercalary months needed to be added to synchronize the calendar to the seasons. Since the Pontifices were often politicians, and because a Roman magistrate's term of office corresponded with a calendar year, this power was prone to abuse: a Pontifex could lengthen a year in which he or one of his political allies was in office, or refuse to lengthen one in which his opponents were in power. This caused the calendar to become out of step with the seasons; for example, Caesar's crossing of the Rubicon in January 49 BC actually took place in mid-autumn. Under his authority as Pontifex Maximus, Gaius Julius Caesar introduced the calendar reform that created the Julian calendar, with a fault of less than a day per century, and which remained the standard till the Gregorian reform in the 16th century. It also, coincidentally, made 46 BC, the year of Julius's third consulship, 445 days long.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pontifex_Maximus).

 

Thus, it becomes easy to understand how Constantine, as the Pontifex Maximus, was able to launch a successful coup, which resulted in redefining and controlling the dates of the calendar on which one may worship, from which many of the doctrines and traditions of Christianity flow. VERY clever, indeed!

 

Jesus spoke of the vanity of the doctrines of men. “All too well, He said, you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition (Mk. 7:9).” None have better summed up the words of Jesus than President John Adams, who wrote of the religions of men: "As I understand the Christian religion, it was, and is, a revelation. But how has it happened that millions of fables, tales, legends, have been blended with both Jewish and Christian revelation that have made them the most bloody religion that ever exist." - Letter to Judge F. A. Van der Kemp, December 27, 1816

 

“ Bloody,” indeed has been the history of the religions of men. The Church of Rome undoubtedly slaughtered hundreds of thousands in their many inquisitions. Likewise, historians have written that Henry Tudor and Thomas Cromwell caused the deaths of 50,000 or more Roman Catholics during the establishment of the Church of England. Time and space prevents us from listing all the atrocities committed in the name of man-made religions, with the vast majority of these injustices stemming from disagreements over doctrines and fables of men, nowhere to be found in the Bible.    

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 3

 

 

THE SHADOW OF THINGS TO COME

 

Now, while the world at large, across the broad spectrum and myriad religions of men, observes many holidays, Occult and mysterious, very, very few understand and appreciate the times of God. Even among those who devoutly follow that which is called Christianity, there is scant knowledge of those times which embody the days of worship described in the gospel accounts. By any reason of logic, something is really wrong with this picture.

 

The days on which one worships cast forth a shadow or outline, portraying an image of a future that is hoped for. That outlined sketch of the future is dependent on and embodies the One being worshipped, whether of Jesus Christ to eternal life, or of the shadow projected by times which are cast forth from the image of darkness, unto death.

 

Therefore, when Paul heard the Galatians were returning to their old traditions, which days of observance project a shadow of darkness, he said, “I am afraid for you, lest I have labored for you in vain,” (Gal. 4:11).

 

Israel of old walked under the shadow of the Cloud in the wilderness (Ex. 13:21). Likewise, Israel of the spirit yet walks beneath the same Cloud, Jesus Christ, under the protection of the shadow and covering from that same Cloud. Though we speak by analogy of the spirit, nonetheless, the Cloud yet hovers over those called of God.

 

For true Christians the world over, the Cloud or Image from which the outline is projected is Christ, and His reflection moves about through the observance of the Appointed Times, which are prophetic - sketched and ordered by the pattern of the lunar cycles, like music, they flow in a rhythmic order of the sevens. Therefore, these pages are a journey into the Music of the Appointed Times.

 

The shadow of the holy days, the new moon (Trumpets), festivals and Sabbaths are the temporal evidence of that which is to come. There is a real form or image (Jesus Christ), but the Appointed Times are His shadow, which, by observance, outlines the way to salvation (Col. 2:16-17).

 

Paul adds in his epistle to the Corinthians, “you cannot enact and combine the image and outline of the ways of God, walking under the Cloud of the Lord, while at the same time embracing the Occult shadows of fellowship with demons” (I Cor. 10:21...a paraphrase of the concept, of course).

 

So, there is the Cloud and Body, Jesus Christ – the Rock after which Israel of old followed in the wilderness. He is the Body, Image or Substance of reality from which is cast a visual and prophetic shadow, by and through the Appointed Times. He is the One lifted up so that all men might be drawn to Him - that wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together (Mt. 24:28).

 

But, that “mystery of lawlessness,” which Paul spoke of in chapter 2, verse 7 of II Thessalonians, will not come to full bloom until the times described in the 27th book of prophecy, Revelation - a mystery unlocked by the key of sevens, in the days when the melody pattern of the Appointed Times of God comes to clash with the shadow and finale of the light of darkness, Satan himself.

 

Note that Paul’s letter of alarm was a result of what he foresaw, coming from the merging of three distinct paths - politics, lawlessness and false religion (II Thes. 2:4-11), subjects that permeate the story flow of the sevens of Daniel and Revelation.

 

These ingredients, blended together, become the basic definition of what Paul called the strong delusion of “the lie” (II Thes. 2:11 & Rom. 1:25), a parallel to Jesus’ earlier statement, “depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness,” (Mt. 7:23). Many, Jesus said, would come, practicing deceit and lawlessness, while claiming to represent His name and ministry – a chapter and verse which Constantine and his underlings apparently never read.

 

Jesus prophesied of the misuse and abuse of His name because He knew the vast majority, for the purpose of pomp, show, and name dropping, would come in masquerade, using His name and office, while behind the mask, they would reject His teachings. Hiding behind this veil of disguise and deceit, “Many will come in My Name,” He said (Mt. 24:4-5). Constantine came in Jesus’ name, but the message and doctrine of the Emperor was much altered from the words of the scriptural accounts.

 

“Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples,” the prophet uttered. To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them,” (Isa. 8:16-20).

 

So, the disguise and mask of Constantine has continued down to the present age, where the vast majority of the religions of mainstream Christian thought are not founded at all on the Bible, but on the traditions of men - a veil superimposed, covering the word of God, while substituting the traditions of men. These are the very practices for which Jesus blasted the doctrines of the temple lawyers.

 

Their doctrines and motives were, and still are, hidden and mysterious. Very much akin to the politics of the governments of men, the words and promises are smooth, but the actions speak a different language. Their dialects are Occult; the results are false promises, shattered hopes and scattered dreams. None have stated it better than journalist Charles Krauthammer, who said, “Pay no attention to their smooth speech and promises, but rather observe what they do.”

 

 

 

Though all governments, political parties and religions of men are corrupt and evil by varying degrees, in a modern example of stunning proportion, the progressives of the United States have successfully gutted and redefined the political party of the Democrats.

 

Like the stealth doctrines of mainstream Christianity, the modern Democratic Party still headlines, banners and drops the name, but inside it has been totally reworked and redefined.  It is now a hybrid creature, hiding in stealth behind the mask of the name, but bearing little resemblance to the original form which was the democratic party of decades past.  

 

Of course, there are no political parties contrived of men, which are true and pure. They are all corrupt, by varying degrees, some less than others. According to Jesus’ statement, on the outside the cups and tombs are whitewashed, polished and clean. The schemes of men are always proclaimed as sparkling and wholesome, while inside, behind the curtain, they are full of corruption, scattered about with the bones of dead men (Mt. 23:27).

 

Time, to the founding apostles and scribes in the church history of that first century AD, was of the essence. Completing the work of those early witnesses of Jesus’ ministry and church was of the utmost urgency. So fleeting and serious was the age that those early apostles constantly sounded the alarm, warning of the stealth operatives to come. Now, in our day, the warning of their prophetic words was never more front page and current.

 

In Acts 20:29, speaking to the elders of Ephesus, Paul declared, “After my departure savage wolves will come in among you”. So effective were the efforts of this spirit of darkness that late in his ministry, Paul informed Timothy, “all those in Asia have turned away from me,” (II Tim. 1:15).

 

Though Jesus would never have allowed His work to be destroyed, the gap between success and failure really did hinge on that small window of time, during the latter half of the first century AD.

 

Backed primarily by the churches of Asia Minor and Galatia, the survival of the true gospel of Jesus was sustained by a handful of apostles and scribes of Levitical descent, among who, Matthew, Mark and Luke were prominent. These early witnesses of Jesus were far flung and separated, but all in contact with the apostle John and other scribes, who left us the records of their works and epistles.

 

These scripts of witness were not trusted to the guardianship of Jerusalem or Rome, but to the core and hub of the lands of the musical modes - for the safekeeping, preservation and canonization of the New Testament. This task would eventually fall to John, his elders and disciples, at a place called Ephesus, realm of the lyre harp and her seven-string octave modes. 

 

It is quite incredible, the things we were never taught in history class. These lessons of the past readily demonstrate how the crossbreeding of religion, politics, debt and schemes of excessive taxation are used in the weaving of mysteries, all aimed at controlling the masses, by the media of propaganda and deceit,  in the politics and governments of corrupt men.

 

If these points of politics and religion seem disconnected and exaggerated, please consider that it was a combination of the politics of war and taxation that determined the birth place of Jesus Christ, at a place called, Bethlehem, in the fall of 5 BC (ref. “When was Jesus Born,” Fred R. Coulter).

 

Much earlier, in the days of the prophet Samuel, when Israel wanted a king, God told the prophet, “They are rejecting Me,”

(I Sam. 8:7), after which He described how a physical ruler would levy taxes and burdens upon them. But Israel, like all nations, wanted a king and overlord, leaving behind the saga of human misery written in the histories of man, down to this very moment in time.

 

Likewise, consider that buying and selling, banking and taxation, by control, merchandising and debt, will play a major role in the worship, subjugation and obedience to the coming age of Babylon the Great. Technically speaking, she is already on the scene, but not yet fully active.

 

Though Babylon of the first order was long ago, just like the notes of music, later, in the upscale octaves of history, while the pitch and magnitude may increase, the patterns are yet the same, as they repeat and repeat and repeat to the end of the age.

 

Given that Lucifer has temporary authority over the entire world, we should not be amazed that ongoing events in world governments and commerce are in serious disarray. Nowhere is this more apparent than in our own Washington, D.C., a breeding ground of continual discord. And, in this concert wasteland, horrid as the performance may be, we yet pay tribute to watch the circus unfold.

 

Truth comes from many directions and the words of a recent Hollywood movie well describe Satan’s system and the trials of our generations. The startling lines of the movie script are these. “It’s all about control. The true value of any conflict is in the debt that it creates. The one who controls the debt controls everything”! Yes, how true.

 

In the 17th year of this Metonic cycle, now past, the national debt of the United States crossed the 17 trillion dollar line of red ink, and continues its climb.

 

In this, the Scripture is profoundly fulfilled, “The borrower is servant (slave) to the lender (Proverbs twenty-two: seven).” Like the period at the end of a sentence, the age to which we have arrived is well described, in a book of twenty-two chapters, spanned by the Revelation of the unfolding events of her seven string courses - in Revelation, the 27th book of the New Testament. We have come to the age and full bloom of the 22:7.

 

The ways of God are in contrast to Satan’s world. The combined messages of the Old and New Testaments were knit together, and brought to concert.  The score was written, from Genesis to Revelation, by a pattern that in many ways is virtually identical to the harp and her seven-string notes, revealing the panorama of the plan of God. Like a melody of Psalm, the word of God was not composed by the meddling ambitions of corrupt men, but by God Himself.  Then, through the ministry of Jesus Christ, spins the covenant tones of the sevens and His music of the Appointed Times.     

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 4

 

THE FORTY-NINE BOOKS

OF THE DAY-FOUR PASSOVER

4   9   4

 

“I will open my riddle on the harp (Psalm 49:4)”

 

 

Behold, I have come - In the volume of the Book it is written of Me - to do Your will, O God.”  Jesus caused these words to be written in the Psalms (40:7) and in the epistle of Paul to the Hebrews (10:7).

 

About 1,000 years after David wrote the lyrics of Psalm 40, verse 7 began to be precisely fulfilled, in that number of the symmetrical, key of C transitions, 23 - the number of the helix of the human genome and her 23 chromosomes.

 

This fulfillment, we find in the introduction to the New Testament. In the original order of the Bible, this is the 23rd of the 49 books, the gospel of Matthew, where, in the first chapter is described the 14 x 3 = 42 generations from Abraham to Jesus Christ.

 

Then, from the time of the beginning of the New Testament church, on Pentecost, 30 AD, seven additional generations, begotten through the process of the 7 weeks of the church harvest periods, are yet in the process of being added to the original 42 generations of Matthew’s account, as described in this book 23 of the original number and order of the 7 x 7, the 49 books of the Bible.

 

The latter seven generations of the New Testament age are a spiritual house and partly symbolic, of course, but these generations, once complete, will then amount to a total of 42 + 7 = 49 generations, from Abraham to the time of the first resurrection - day of birth for the spirit born children of God.

 

Then, one thousand years later, in the second resurrection, comes the day 50, 8th generation of the spirit, when the entire family of all generations shall be complete. Day 50, Pentecost, is then the last note of the circle of the seven octaves of Jubilee (i.e. 7 x 7 = 49 + 1 + 50).

 

These and other timeline patterns of the Bible, we are going to demonstrate, are essential elements of the time calculations of the lunar Hebrew calendar, the Appointed Times of God, and His plan of salvation for all mankind.

 

Incredible as it may be, these universal patterns of time and cyclical energy, harmonized with our solar system, from the seven -day week of creation itself, were co-joined and braided with the laws of music, and especially that of the lyre (harp) of the prophetic Psalms of scripture.

 

The book of Matthew, the 23rd book of the Bible, transitions from the last (22nd) book of the Old Testament, the book of Chronicles. This is a beautiful segue, from the listings of the genealogy of the Old to the opening of the New. That is, this echoes the fulfillment of the words of Psalm 40:7, saying of Jesus Christ, “In the scroll of the BOOK it is written of Me.”

 

Therefore, in a scroll of the Book, at the very outset, in those opening lines of the New Testament, we find the introduction and pattern pictorial of the helix and her 23 chromosomes. Here, in Matthew’s account, book 23 of the Bible, we begin with the words, “THE BOOK OF THE GENOME OF JESUS CHRIST, the son of David (Mt. 1:1)!”

 

Then, throughout the New Testament, follows the remainder of that prophecy of Jesus’ purpose, through the story flow of the 27 books of His continuing ministry, “To do your will, O God,” (Ps. 40:8, Heb. 10:7).

 

From the foundation of the world the Lamb was slain, and by that very fact it was also determined that it would take 49 books to describe the plan and purpose of all that is embodied in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, on that Wednesday of 30 AD, the fourth day of the week. These 49 books are, of course, the Bible, the word of God and His truth (Jn. 17:17). And, to complete the seven octaves (49 + 1), there is yet one book no man has ever seen. It is the book of life.

 

But, in this three-number pattern of the 49 books and the day-four Wednesday Passover (4 9 4) was encoded the plan, the acts and events of the story of the plan of God to salvation - unbelievably accomplished on nothing more complicated than the pattern flow of the harp and her seven strings of the musical orb.

 

From Genesis to Revelation the account unfolds, and in simplistic terms of pattern, was stated by the number of the books, and by that one day of the week, Wednesday, Passover day, Nisan 14-the day that made all things possible. Therefore, combined with the 49 Books of the word of God, the day-four Wednesday Passover completes the pattern, 4 9 4.

 

And, again, incredible as it may sound, the story flow of these mysteries of God are sketched and portrayed in the musical patterns of the Psalms, and in the seven-string notes of the diatonic harp (lyre).

 

No matter where you live, and no matter your place of birth on this earth, you have never read the full details of this story before. It is stunning! It is unbelievable, yet true. In these pages we are going to demonstrate that the plan of God has been scored in the melody sheets of Psalm, and that the scale pattern of the lyre harp forms the seven notes of prophecy. The opening lines of staff and song, in the New Testament age, began at the Sea of the Kinneret (harp sea), in the region of the octave name, Galilee. 

 

So, we have the books (49) and the Passover (day 4), linked together, with an amazing story contained therein. Stated in simple terms, the Passover, that all-important memorial of Jesus’ death, is a One-time annual memorial.  But the full impact of all the details surrounding this day requires 49 books to fully unveil!

 

These 7 x 7 = 49 Books are bound and stitched together by a common thread - a thread, which from Genesis to Revelation, has been chorded together by the simplicity of the sevens of harp and psalm, their strings of voice and their prophetic tones of octave multiples.

 

But more amazing yet is that in these patterns, formed of the sevens, live not only the cycles and formulae of the lunar calendar, the music of the Psalms and the Appointed Times of God, but also the framework of prophecy itself.  Each element is woven together, becoming the parts, pieces and strings of the Biblical story.

 

In these patterns, we have the four elements which form the fabric of the whole. Standing at the head is the weekly Sabbath (the seven), then comes the second element of the Appointed Times of the Hebrew calendar calculations, with the four rules of postponement, followed by the music of the Psalms. Finally, the fourth element is added, that of Biblical prophecy itself.

 

Common to, inseparable and hovering about each of these four parts of the mystery is the number seven and the half-week division of day four. In combination, these elements touch, and stem from, the four-part statement of Genesis 1:14.

 

Here, in their sealed imagery of parable and mystery, coded and knit together by the sevens, these are the (1) signs, (2) seasons, (3) days; and (4) years of the day-four Genesis account of the seven days of creation-time marked in this 14th verse of Genesis by the 4/3 division of the seven days, which is the half-octave of musical pattern.

 

This image and pictorial of the sevens, throughout time, is both projected and reflected as the Light, Jesus Christ, moves about, casting forth His shadows of food and drink, festivals, new moon and Sabbaths, as described by the words of Colossians 2:17.

 

Jesus, then, is the fifth element of grace, presiding over the four parts of His shadow and image. “For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed,” He said (Jn. 6:55). In sum, this scripture is 16, the reflection of the 61 patterns of the calculated Hebrew calendar, and in product, 6 x 55 = 330, the musical note tone of E (330 hertz), the weekday equivalent of five, Thursday, the selfsame day of God’s covenant with Abraham (Gen. 15), the exodus out of Egypt, and the Thursday entombment of Jesus Christ, 30 AD. The weekday of Thursday is also the day Jesus ascended into the heavens, on Iyar 27, 30 AD.

 

 

But, in yet another way these points of four are summed. Jesus, many weeks after His resurrection, by inference, collected all the elements of what we have described, in His statement to his disciples. This occurred in the last chapter of the gospel of Luke, where He explained how all things concerning His purpose were fulfilled, as “written in the Law of Moses, and the Prophets, and the Psalms,” (Luke 24:44).

 

Here, in these verses of Luke, which sum to the number 14, Jesus includes three parts of the whole, but what is unspoken is that He is the fourth, which the other three define. He is the Spirit of prophecy; therefore He embodies all that has to do with the appointed and prophetic times.

 

And, within this 4th part or element, Jesus often declared such things as, “the time is fulfilled and My hour has come.” So, with God’s purpose, we always have the element of TIME, and the Appointed Times are determined by Light, and that Light, from whence comes the prophetic shadow, is Jesus Christ Himself. 

 

In these pages we are going to see how it was that this thread and parable of mystery began to be stated by David in the music of Psalm 40:6, and how this riddle was again spoken of by the sons of Korah, in the words of Psalm 49:4. Then, in a marvelous and poetic way, about 1,000 years after the fact, it was the apostle Paul who opened the mystery of these parables of psalm, in his simple statement of Hebrews 10:5.

 

Here, in the book of Hebrews, Paul unveils the Old Testament mystery of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, first hinted at by David in the original text of Psalm 40:6. This is Paul's explanation of the “Body,” which is the disclosure of how the proverb of Psalm 49:4 is opened or revealed, through the story flow of the Biblical text of her 49 books - books which reveal and amplify the plan and purpose of the day-four Wednesday Passover Sacrifice, Jesus Christ. So, in the lines and verse of harp and song is embedded a mystery - one which the world at large has not understood and does not fully comprehend.

 

This riddle or mystery, like the sevens of the harp or lyre symmetry of Psalm 49:4, is understood through the pattern of the seven notes of covenant, which in type are the annual Sabbaths of the Appointed Times. The pattern sketched by these yearly Sabbath events demonstrates how all things hinge upon the Wednesday, 14th Passover day of the prophetic form. This was so in the year of Israel’s exodus out of Egypt, 1486/87 BC, but more importantly in the spring of 30 AD. For both occasions, Passover, the 14th of Nisan, fell on the weekday of Wednesday, day four - the day of the perfect 4/3 ratio, half-octave pitch of the seven-note scale. 

 

As we progress, it will demonstrated how the Appointed Times are co-joined and inseparable from the calculations of the Hebrew calendar, and how both the Times and calendar calculations are joined, linked and interwoven with the construct of the prophetic patterns of the 49 books of the day-four, Wednesday Passover of Nisan 14. Like the words of the Bible itself, in which scripture cannot be broken, the combined marriage of these relationships of Time, calendar, prophecy and musical law are inseparable.

They cannot be parted or broken. Therefore, these patterns of the lunar calendar, like that of a royal emblem standard and seal, form, validate and proclaim that the methods of the calculated Hebrew calendar are indeed to be found in the Bible. They are embedded, here a little, there a little, in the very pages of the Biblical text itself, and “there is no speech nor language where their VOICE is not heard,” (a Psalm of David, 19:3). 

 

Therefore, this mystery of Psalm 49:4 unfolds by the under- standing of God’s plan of salvation for mankind, as made possible by the Wednesday, day-four Passover of 30 AD. Then, finally, some 2,000 years after the fact, will come a time of full disclosure, during the days of the seventh trumpet of Revelation 10:7.

 

In type, this mystery is also stated in the text of Col. 2:17, concerning the Appointed Times of that reference, which days of observance projects a shadow from the “Body” and Light, Jesus Christ. Here, at Colossae, through these words, Paul was instructing the predominately gentile church on the observance of God’s holy times, in contrast to that of the world’s religions.

 

Thus, the connecting links of these Scriptures are: “Sacrifices and offering You did not desire; A body you have prepared for Me,” (Ps. 40:6). Then, “I will incline my ear to a proverb; I will disclose my dark saying (mystery) on the harp,” (Ps. 49:4).

 

But, finally, Paul explains and amplifies the riddle and mystery of that Old Testament Psalm - this in the context and purpose of the Passover, saying in Hebrews, “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, But a BODY (Jesus Christ) You have prepared for Me,” (Heb. 10:5).

 

It should be noted that at some point after the writing of the book of Hebrews, in the New Testament age, it seems that Jewish scribes attempted to further bury this mystery of the “Body” of Psalm 40:6. This, by mistranslating the verse to read, “My ears you have opened (KJV).” However, this substitution of the hearing (ears) in lieu of the “Body” was not in the original text, and was correctly quoted by Paul in Hebrews, as “a Body” you have prepared for me (Heb. 10:5). 

 

But, again, the number pattern of this incredible story has been encoded in the simple form, four-nine-four, and we shall see how it is that this pattern has been cross referenced in scripture, embedded and Included in God's method of timekeeping itself - that of the calculated, lunar Hebrew calendar.

 

Indeed, as related to time and the seven days of the week, these numbers are a cornerstone of the Hebrew calendar calculations, and through many paths of pictorial these patterns duplicate and overlay with the music of the diatonic, C major scale, with the open string, middle C reference at 264 hertz, 6th multiple of 44.

 

The present day frequency note numbers of this scale evolved over time, and seem to have come to rest at the present frequencies, coincident with the age of the translating and publication of a Bible in English and the founding of the Americas.

These frequencies, which in many ways mimic the prophetic number patterns of the Bible and the calculated Hebrew calendar, are said to exist simply because their ratios give comfort and are pleasing to the human emotion. Online and other published sources state, “They are just natural.” Interestingly, going back to the days of antiquity, it seems that the standard for middle C at 264 hertz has always remained the same, even though other notes have evolved over time. World concert A, which is now 440, was at one time 432, with many of the other frequencies also lower in frequency, compared to the current scale. 

 

Of course, these open string diatonic frequencies are skewed slightly from the chromatic scale of the piano. By note progression, in the 4th octave, open string C major scale, the current frequencies in use are:

 

A = 220 hertz (Numbers of the O.T. & Hebrew Alphabet)

B = 247 hertz (The 247 year, 7 day cycles, sub octave of Ps. 49:4)

C = 264 hertz (1st and reference note of the 7 Metonic leap years)

D = 297 hertz (Day 4, 4th note Wednesday Passover)

E = 330 hertz (Thursday, Selfsame day, CHC Halek, 3.33 secs.)

F = 352 hertz (6th note, day number of man, 4th octave of 44)

G = 396 hertz (Sabbath, 7th note, = 22 minutes in CHC parts)

A = 440 hertz (octave double of 220 hertz)

CHC = Calculated Hebrew Calendar 

 

But, contained in this number pattern of Psalm 4 9 4, the double of 247, are the sevens of the weekly cycle (7 x 7 = 4 9), the Wednesday Passover (4), the weekly Sabbath day (7), the seven annual Sabbaths (7), the day of Pentecost (4 + 4 = 8), the length of Jesus’ ministry (44 months), and also the day of the week and day of the lunar month on which Jesus was resurrected, late Saturday, Nisan 17 (4 + 9 + 4 = 17).

 

The pattern construct is through the seven days of the week. But, by logical comparison, in the case of a Psalm or song, there is a mystery in that time calculations and prophecy, in many ways, replicate the patterns and symmetry of the seven open strings of music. So, we have these universal patterns that overlap, each a mirror of the other, though unexplained. As we say, there are things of creation that just naturally exist.

 

In this case, the principle is introduced by the harp or lyre, but it could be any instrument of the open string diatonic form. But, we find in the verse of Psalm 4 9:4 -“I will open my riddle on the harp.” Indeed, the very outline of the calculated Hebrew calendar interlace of leap years is formed by this same relationship and cadence of the cycle patterns of those seven 13-month years of every 19-year Metonic of time.

 

Just as Wednesday is the mid-point division of the seven-day week, and just as the mid-point of that stellar book of prophecy, patterned of the sevens, is Revelation chapter 11, so it is that in the time- piece of the 19-year Metonic standard, the mid-point division of the seven leap years falls at the 11th year of the Metonic. This point of 11 is the common denominator of the seven notes of the diatonic, which all resolve to 11 by the seventh note, key of C, fourth octave. Note that in the progression of the seven-day weekly cycles, day 11 is also Wednesday, the mid-division of the week.

 

Eleven is the mid-point of the seven Metonic leap years because the 11th year is also year four of the seven leap year progression, the equivalent of Wednesday, the note D of the scale. Remember, Jesus, the “Body” of Psalm 40:6, was crucified on the 4th day, at the mid-point of the week (Wednesday), the 11th day of the weekly cycle.

 

On the subject of divisions and mid-points, men who calculate such things have stated that the mid-point of the 49 books of the Bible is Psalm 118:8. Quite the number of coincidence, seeing it is the octave multiple of 297, which, at the fourth multiple is 1,188. The point: that 297 hertz is the fourth note of the scale, Wednesday, the note D, of the open string harp diatonic. So, in a multitude of ways, Jesus Christ, who is the Spirit of prophecy, moves about in the patterns of His Appointed Times, casting a shadow of things to come (Col. 2:17).

 

Like time itself, it is important to have a calendar that is on pitch, neither flat nor sharp, but one which correctly declares the seven annual notes of God's Appointed Times of the annual cycle, and her half-octave, Wednesday, day four of the week. This is the day of Genesis 1:14, when, in the beginning week of the seven days of Genesis, the metronome of time was marked on that Wednesday, day four of creation. In that Biblical verse, God explains how time progresses by the divisions of night and day, as coupled to the heavenly lights, the sun, moon and stars. Enclosed within the lunar cycles, are prophetic events, which God describes as “SIGNS.”

 

But, again, the important thing about this mystery of Psalm 4 9 4 is that it is locked to the number seven, in the form of a parable or riddle. Like the parables of Jesus, in this case, this particular mystery is opened by an understanding of the seventh day Sabbath and the seven annual Sabbaths of God. From these observances comes the knowledge necessary to grasp the entire panorama of the plan of God to salvation.

 

“Hear this, all you people; give ear, all inhabitants of the world; both low and high, rich and poor together. My mouth shall speak of wisdom, and the thoughts of my heart shall be of understanding. I will incline my ear to a parable, I will open (disclose) my dark saying (mystery) upon the lyre.” (Ps. 49:1-4).

 

In the numbers of these verses of Psalm 49 are contained the number of Books (49), the number of the Passover date (1-4), and the number of the day of the week on which it occurred in 30 AD, Wednesday, the fourth day. 

 

Moreover, as we come to understand that truth is the word of God, it follows that we do not get the meaning of this riddle or parable unless the word of God explains it. Therefore mankind, in the broad spectrum, will surely never understand such things of the Bible by

 

observing a solar calendar laced with the holidays and base elements of Occult times - times disclaimed in Galatians 4:10 and Colossians 2:8.

 

Rather, such knowledge may only be unlocked by the Light of truth (Jesus Christ), which then projects these shadows or patterns by the sevens (Sabbaths) of Colossians 2:17. Here, Paul wrote to the gentile church of Colossae, a city near and in the shadow of the seventh church, Laodicea.

 

Colossae, a satellite church by its close proximity to Laodicea, was akin to an eighth church, which, for reason of pattern, Jesus chose not to include in the seven-church circle of Revelation, just as He did not include other churches that were extant in that age of about 100 AD. These things are not random and accidental, but have to do with creating a pictorial sketch, always by the mystery and riddle of the sevens.

 

The prophetic patterns of the Bible and the calculated Hebrew calendar in different ways project an overlay of mirror imagery, reflecting from one to the other. Such patterns and reflections require a Light source, which then projects the shadows of Colossians 2:17. That Source is Jesus Christ and He lives and moves within the framework of the Appointed Times of the lunar Hebrew calendar.

 

His movements are then acted out through the shadow patterns of our observance, generated from this Great Light, who first, according to Isaiah’s prophecy, appeared by the shore lands of the harp-shaped Sea of the Kinnor. There, in Galilee, began His earthly ministry, in the seventh month, Tishri, fall of 26 AD.

 

In the darkness of this world’s holidays and culture, there is no light of future hope. Therefore, in the observed times of the solar calendar of the world, these patterns of salvation can never occur. In Satan’s world there is only a light of darkness, which projects no semblance of God’s way of life, or explanation of His purpose. Rather, the dark light of Lucifer’s times is wrapped in a shroud of mystery, which is said to be “Occult.”

 

In contrast, the patterns of God’s mystery are amplified by the sevens of Revelation, in saying, “But in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished!” This, in Revelation 10:7, by numbers of the familiar codex, representing triumph over the dragon with the seven heads and ten horns (10 + 7 = 17).

 

By order of placement, the book of Hebrews is the 22nd book of the New Testament, but also the 44th book of the whole Bible. These are familiar numbers of the open string scale of music, since 22 and 44 are the frequencies of the sixth note of the scale, and by adding a zero the numbers become 220 and 440 hertz - world orchestra standards for the first or A note of the seven-note scale. Thus, we have the connection of 6 and 1, or 6/1, which sums to seven. This 6/1 pattern manifests itself in some amazing points of scripture and the lunar calculations, which we shall later discuss.

 

Neither this parable or her riddle of mystery, inferred by Psalm 49:4, is understood by the world, thus a mystery is embodied and sealed, to a great degree by the 247-year cycles of the 19-year Metonic.

 

In the days of our current age, for years 2010 through 2019 AD, we are under the shadow of a strange, mirror image, back to back Tishri 1, day of Trumpets cloud, which has not occurred in the lunar declarations since before the Revolutionary War. More on this later, but beginning in the fall of 2015, we will enter the second cluster of five years, marked by the pattern, 22522, or 247/247/330/247/247, converted to symmetrical tones. Or, we could say, 494/330/494, since these are the numbers of Monday and Thursday, days two and five of the weekly cycle, which would be the notes B E of the scale. Notice that 330 closely resembles the 3.33 parts per second of the lunar calculations. Such things will go unnoticed by any who do not observe the calculated Hebrew calendar. This is a strong statement, indeed. How so?

 

The 4.94 years of the 247-year cycle adjustments is 2% of the 247 year (sub octave of Ps. 49:4) lunar cycle. The 247-year cycles are keyed to the sevens of the week and, in pattern type, also to the symmetry of the sevens of the open strings of musical pitch. This, the half of 4 9 4, is the next octave down scale (247) and is the second note, B, or in weekly cycle speak, the day of the sevens, Monday. One may say, well, like the 22522 pattern explained in the last paragraph, this is just a coincidence. But wait, we have more to add to the opening of this riddle.

 

Mathematically, we know the Hebrew year-one derivative of the 29.53-day monthly cycle can be demonstrated to have occurred on that very day of the week. That is, Monday, 3761 BC. This, of course, is not the actual year of creation, but a mathematical theory, based on the assumption that the lunar cycle has always been constant. In modern speak we would call this reverse engineering. That is, given a supposed constant, we may backtrack in historical chronology, to find times and dates.

 

Then, based on the known constant of the 29.5305941-day average of the lunar cycle, we can, by mathematical formula, follow the lunar cycles back to the year of source and origination. However, taken from man’s knowledge of astronomy, it is understood that the Hebrew calendar number of 29.53 days differs from the known lunar cycle by about 0.63 seconds per month. Not much, but over time this adds up. So, while it can be said that the Genesis account of the original seven-day week was about 4,000 years ago, we cannot determine the exact year by mathematical theory unless time has been absolutely constant from day one of creation. Of such things we can make educated guesses, therefore the year of creation remains an approximation of speculation, not absolutely defined.

 

Now, the musical equivalent of these 247-year, 4.94 pattern derivatives is, of course, Monday, the note B, or 247 hertz. This is the sister parallel of the 3,055-month, 247-year cycles of the calculated Hebrew calendar-a span of 12,888 weeks. By summation this is 1 + 2 + 8 + 8 + 8 = 27. By sequence this day is Monday (2) of 7, or simply 2/7th of a week.

 

Now, 2/7ths or 27 is the number of the New Testament book Revelation, which is also the 49th book of the Bible. There are seven divisions of the 49 books of the Bible, in which the number 27 is uniquely linked by her parts. That is, division two is that of the prophets, and division seven is that great book, the capstone of prophecy, Revelation. Therefore, at Revelation, the utterance of the prophets of old are gathered, and upon those earlier accounts is superimposed the finale of Book 27, which is a Revelation-a Book of summation, explanation, amplification and clarification of all that has gone before, and all that is to come.  

 

The 247-year spans of the weekday time lock, which track for all lunar dates 98% of the time, has yet another interesting pattern to disclose. During the entire Hebrew calendar cycle of 689,472 years, based on this number of 98%, 675,716 years of the cycle will follow the repeating patterns of the seven-day week. The actual percentage is 98.00485, but for practical illustration we have rounded it off to 98%. The period of 247 years, is, of course, 13 cycles of the 19 year Metonic, a span of 12,888 weeks, or 3,055 months.

 

Hebrew calendar gurus call this alignment of lunar dates, with respect to a day of the week, the 0 mod 7 of the 247-year periods. A span of 90,215 days would be -1 mod 7, and a 90,214 day span of the 247-year cycles is -2 mod 7. Only about 2% of the full 689,472-year cycle, or 13,756 years will see a variation from the 0 mod 7, 90,216 day, 247-year spans.

 

A period of 90,216 days is an exact multiple of the seven-day week; therefore there is no modification from this lock and key of lunar time, with respect to the weekly cycle. Thus, such periods, being perfect multiples of the week day and same lunar date are said to be 0 mod 7 (Please see online, Hebrew Calendar Science and Myths).

 

However, there is a 2% variable of week days and lunar dates which do not repeat on the same day of the week, but are modified by one or two days from a perfect multiple of sevens. That is, 90,216/7 = 12,888 weeks of seven days = 247 years, of which only about 4.94 years of the 247-year span depart by one or two days from the 0 mod 7 - a number which oddly parallels that of Psalm 49:4 and the seven-string notes of a harp. 

 

The 247-year periods of 90,214 or 90,215 days miss the cycles of seven by one or two days, as opposed to a 247-year, 90,216-day span. The latter (90,216) is an exact multiple of seven, and therefore falls on the same day of the weekly cycle as compared to 247 years before (or after) for any specified date on the lunar calendar.

 

This tells us that in the entire history of man only about 140 of the lunar dates of Tishri 1 will see a departure from the lunar date/day of the week time mark (0 mod 7). We are speaking of the time span from Genesis to Revelation 20:5, which covers the 7,000-year history of the plan of God, extending to and past the second resurrection. Therefore, this variant from the 0 mod 7 occurs about 20 times in 1,000 years, or 4.94 times in a 247 year period - the number of Psalm 49:4!

 

 

Two remarkable dates of these variations, where the day of the week is adjusted at the timeline of the 12,888 weeks (247 yrs.), occurred in 1956 BC and 1947 AD. This is a difference of 3902 years in the span of time. The first date was during the age of Abraham and the second date occurred in the very year when the UN voted to create the modern state of Israel.

 

The first date, 1956 BC was a -2 mod 7, where 247 years earlier (2203 BC) Saturday was declared for Tishri 1, but in 1956 BC the span retracted to Thursday (-2 mod 7). In 1947, in the eighth year of that Metonic, Trumpets was declared on Monday, as compared to Tuesday in 1700 AD. That was 90,215 days, or 1 mod 7. The latter -1 mod 7 is really rare, seeing this one day move may occur only about 2.3 times in a 1,000 year span.

 

These years of the Metonic cycle (1956 BC & 1947 AD) were respectively, years one and eight. Curiously, in the time span of every 19-year cycle, there are 99 months contained in the span of the first eight years - 99 being the age of Abraham’s circumcision, and 99 being the 7th, G or Sabbath note of the diatonic scale of music, a combination of (2 + 7) (2 + 7), or 99, linking, in a graphic sketch, the numbers of the two divisions of Biblical prophecy, division two and division seven. Abraham of division two is dead, but by faith both he and his offspring-those called, chosen and faithful, are all prophesied to live in the seventh division, at the seventh trumpet.

 

Revelation is that great book of prophecy of the second testament.

It is the seventh division of the Bible, so it bears the number 2 and 7, or the 27th book, with the second number (7) spread throughout the pages of her 22 chapters. It can easily be said that seven is the Spirit energy of Revelation. Now, the number of weeks in the 247- year cycle is also the number of Revelation, or 1+2+8+8+8 = 27, and the sum of her dual book numbers, 49 + 27 = 76 = the 4th or Wednesday multiple of the 19-year time cycle (4 x 19 = 76 yrs).

 

The difference is 49 - 27 = 22, the number of books in the Old Testament, and the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet. A glance at all of this tells us that the parts of the number construct are all a sub-strata of 247, 494, 4.94 and Psalm 49:4. Like the atom or the DNA of the genome, small parts of the bits and pieces of time are merely a micro of life and the universal laws of creative physics. We may analyze the different size and shapes of things, but all elements points to the same source of Godly design.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 5

 

 

THE 247-YEAR SPANS AND THE 6/1 PATTERNS

 

The revolutions of the 247-year lunar periods are locked to the sevens of the week 98% of the time, leaving only 4.94 years that are not coincident with the same day of the weekly cycle, as compared to any lunar calendar date 247 years previous. This is true for any lunar date we care to choose. If Nisan 14 for any given year is on Wednesday, then there's a 98% chance it will fall on Wednesday 247 years later, or 247 years before, and so it goes into eternity in either direction of time, by the multiples of 13 x 19 = 247 years.

 

At the same time, there is a 2% chance, or 4.94 years out of the 247 year cycle, in which the same lunar date will not fall on the same weekday of any 247-year comparison, before or after any chosen lunar date.

 

Thus, this B note of Monday (247 hertz) is quite a peculiar thing. Now, 98% sums to 9 + 8 = 17, and the 4.94 years and/or Psalm 49:4, both sum to 17- a fairly familiar prophetic number - a riddle which only the key note concept of Psalm 49:4 may open, by the pattern of the seven-string notes of prophecy.

 

This very interesting pattern produced by the relationship of the 98% time lock to the sevens and the 2% adjustments of the 247- year cycles is a result of the shortfall of the 905 parts of time (50.277 min.) per every 247-year period. Here, several patterns are formed, which are just more of the manifestations of the familiar 6/1 cycles of seven. In mathematical speak, it happens this way:

 

The corrective adjustments of the 247-year cycles, based on the 50.28 minute shortfall of an exact multiple of the seven-day week, always move time in reverse. Therefore, the 140 corrections per 7,000 year period always follow the same pattern, which is Sabbath to Thursday (2), Thursday to Tuesday (2), Monday to Sabbath (2), and Tuesday to Monday (1). So, the combination of that which is the same is 2 + 2 + 2 = 6, and the one which is different = 1. The combined set from the 4 days of declaration for Tishri 1, then amounts to 6 + 1 = 7.

 

Thus, we have the patterns, 6 + 1, or 6/1 = the weekly cycle (6/1), the 6/1 fall of the manna from heaven, and the 61 patterns of the 19-year Metonic, as well as the 61% of the time that the lunar calendar is adjusted by postponement rules. Added to that is another 61, which is a noted mark point of a prophetic event - that of the acceptable year of Isaiah 61. This prophecy, uttered some 750 years previous, fell on the sixth year of the Metonic, 26 AD, the first year of the seven-year land Shemitah (a Jubilee year) at the beginning of Jesus’ ministry.

 

Hence, the coincidence of these overlays is 6/1, 6/1, 6/1, 6/1, 6/1 and 6/1. If we add the Shemitah, or seven-year land Sabbath cycle, we have seven of the 6/1 patterns. But, if we then add the 6/1 sequence pattern of the seven seals of Revelation, we have an eighth type of the 6/1 construct. This is because the first six seals of Revelation are separate and unique from the last and seventh seal. That is, the first six seals occur quickly, requiring only the span of the 17 verses of Revelation, chapter six. Then, the dramatic finale, the seventh seal begins with chapter eight and requires the next nine chapters to completely unfold. The point is the pattern break of the seven seals unfolds in two distinct segments, which is 6 + 1 = 7. The seventh seal, of course, consists of seven trumpets, with the seventh trump divided into the seven bowl judgments. Thus, the 21 events of the seventh seal, plus the other six seals, becomes 21 + 6 = 27, the number of the book in which these patterns are enclosed. So, Revelation is a panoramic array of a multitude of sevens.

 

The seventh multiple of this 6/1 pattern is 7 x 61 = 427, which is simply a rearrangement or scramble of the 247-year seven-day week cycle, seeing both numbers contain the same parts in their whole. In both cases the sum is 2 + 4 + 7 and 4 + 2 + 7 = 13, the number of months in the seven leap years of the 19-year Metonic. There is another 13 which locks to the seven-day week, which is the 13-month leap year of 385 days, an exact multiple of 55 sevens (weeks).

 

Thus, the 13th multiple of 19 years falls on the same day of the week at 247-year intervals, and the beginning and end weekdays of a 13-month leap year of 55 weeks also falls on the same day of the week. None of the other six leap years of the 19-year Metonic have this weekday time lock of seven days, resulting that one type is separate from the other six. Therefore, as with the seven seals of Revelation, here is another pattern separation of 6 + 1 = 7.

 

There is an interesting parallel which links the weekly Sabbath day to the day-four Wednesday Passover, which we have stated is a prophetic form of the Nisan 14 event. That is, for years in which the Passover falls on the fourth day of the week, the subsequent day of Tishri 1 is then declared on the weekly Sabbath.

 

In all lunar years, Nisan is the mid-point division of the civil year, just as a Wednesday Passover falls at the mid-division of the week, Wednesday. Seasonally adjusted, Nisan is the seventh month of the civil year, though for seven out of 19 years Nisan becomes the eighth civil month. In such years, the repeat of Adar is, in effect, on paper only, seeing the added 13th month is inserted for seasonal adjustment. Therefore, for practical purposes of seasonal reckoning, Nisan is the seventh month of the civil lunar year cycle.

 

That being said, with respect to the seven-day week, let’s return to our pattern of the 247-year weekly cycles to make the following point: in those years when Nisan 14 falls on Wednesday, in that month the day is literally the second fourth of the seven-day week, or 247. In such years, the first day of Nisan falls on Thursday, thus Passover is always going to be the second Wednesday of the month, falling then on the fourth day of the seven-day week. Again, this is the pattern, 247, and in a sense, being virtually always linked to the number seven, it has prophetic overtones.

 

 

Nisan, then, is the first month of the sacred year, but the seventh month of the civil year. It is also curious to note that in such a year of a Wednesday Passover day, the 17th day of this first or seventh month will always fall on a weekly Sabbath (a seven).

 

Moreover, this relationship of the double four of seven yields yet another amazing link between the fourth commandment and the weekly Sabbath (the 4-7). The Sabbath commandment falls at fourth place in the listing of the 10 commandments, and this 4-7 command is repeated twice, first in Exodus 20, and again in Deuteronomy 5. Therefore, the pattern is a double, or 247- a double statement of the fourth commandment of the seventh day.

 

But Paul, in the book of Hebrews, adds yet another layer to this analogy of doubling, for in Hebrews 4:9, pertaining to the seventh day Sabbath observance, is stated, “There remains therefore Sabbath keeping for the people of God.” Here, Paul gives a second witness to the Old Testament fourth commandment of the seventh-day Sabbath - the one and only place in the New Testament where a direct command is succinctly proclaimed, regarding this all- important observance of the weekly cycle. And in doing so, the very chapter and verse numbers, akin to the implied sevens of Psalm 49:4, become a double statement of the number 247.

 

In other words, Hebrews 4:9 addresses the fourth commandment, thus this pattern and scripture, in the book of Hebrews, becomes a double multiple of 247, or 4:94 - the fourth chapter, ninth verse, fourth commandment. In addition to the fourth commandment of the Sabbath day, Hebrews, the 22nd book of the New Testament, also addresses three more of the annual sevens of God. These are the Passover, Pentecost and the Day of Atonement, spread throughout different places in the 13-chapter text. So, expressed in this 22nd book of Hebrews are four different Appointed Times of Leviticus 23 and the New Testament gospels.

 

But, regarding the occurrence of Passover on the weekday of Wednesday, how often does Passover occur on the fourth day of the seven-day week, and on the second Wednesday of Nisan? It falls on that Wednesday, the 14th, exactly 2/7ths of the time. We don't need to focus very closely to see the obvious inference of the doubles of the sevens and the numbers of the 247 pattern. And, Jesus Christ, the day-four Lamb of God, stands in the midst of the 27th book of the New Testament, Revelation. This is another example of the 2(4)7 patterns.

 

Hence, we see the inseparable linkage between the Wednesday Passover, the second fourth day of the sevens of Nisan, the 247- year cycles, the fourth commandment, and the seventh-day Sabbath. These patterns are prophetic and undeniable, occurring in many different ways throughout the Bible, and they are nowhere more pronounced than in the symmetry of time and the construct of the 19-year cycles.

 

 

 

The Golden Helix Spiral of Music, Prophecy and Time

Symmetry, by definition, is said to be the beauty created by the balance of form. David describes this aspect of God’s artwork at a fitting place. It occurs in the beginning verse of Psalm 19, a lyric provided to the Chief Musician in charge of the 24-temple courses.

 

Here, as David describes the heavenly visual, we have the broad description of what man calls the Golden Spiral of the logarithmic growth ratio. This form fills the universe and spreads throughout much of the physical creation. “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Their line has gone through all the earth (Ps. 19:1-4).”

 

The mathematics of these spiral lines of the heavens, earth and creation, man has described as the Golden Growth Ratio, which number of size comparisons in nature is said to be 1.6181. The details of this conclusion have been cataloged in history, going back thousands of years.  These documents can easily be found in many places, so that we need not list them here. This pattern has been made manifest in seashells, weather patterns, the human ear, the shape and octave spirals of music, and the swirl patterns of galaxies.

 

From this helix form we get such words as inspire, spiral and spirit. A force of breath or wind is implied, therefore we say that the Scriptures have been God-breathed, or inspired. And, in John 3:3, Jesus speaks of being born anew. Such birth, He says, is akin to moving about like the wind - an invisible spirit-like force. Solomon referred to the earth jet streams, calling them the circuit winds. It is said that a reference to a “circuit” occurs 27 times in the Bible. If so, then it is fitting that on the spiral graph, the number 27 falls coincident with the 247-year B note seven-day cycle of the Galilee (circuit) spiral (220 + 27 = 247 = B = Monday).  

Jesus, the man God, came into the world via the spiral of a double helix DNA, but also by the lineage of his physical grandfather, Heli. Thus, in process of His birth, God used a double metaphor of word imagery. God’s Spirit bonded with the Heli helix of the human DNA, becoming physical matter. Here, God’s spiral of creative genius was foundational to the transfer of life and energy, and by the action of His Spiral, the Word became flesh. Jesus was God-breathed (Spirit), from His Father in heaven, but also from the physical DNA of Mary’s father, Heli (the helix).

 

In this ratio of the helical spiral patterns we can see the number aspects of time calculations and the laws of music, both principles being used as building blocks of the 19-year Metonic cycle. In the numbers of this ratio (1.6181) are six and one - the seven days of the week, including the weekly Sabbath. Six plus one is also the scale of the seven notes of music, and the eight and the 81 of the 1.6181 are the numbers of the repeating octave.

 

Eight-one is the number of the Psalm of lunar time standards of the new and full moon festivals (Psa. 81). Also, 61 is the percentage of time that the date of Tishri 1 is adjusted by the rules of the Hebrew calendar postponements. And, the 61 of this number ratio is also the total number of pattern possibilities contained within the 19- year cycles of time. These mathematical laws of lunar time calculations were first disclosed to the world at large, from Tiberius, the shoreline city of the harp shaped Sea of Galilee, in the year 359 AD.

 

One side note to this pictorial of prophetic patterns is this. There are seven major divisions of the Bible, three for the Old Testament and four for the new. The 3-4 tetra chord transition occurs at the beginning of the four gospels. Thus, we have the two segments of the seven pattern divisions, one to four, then four to seven, pivoting on the book of Matthew, the beginning of the fourth division of the seven. These two segments sum to 14 + 47 = 61, or 1 + 4 + 4 + 7 = 16, the reflective image of 61. So, it is easily seen that this ratio of natural, logarithmic growth, 1.6181, contains numbers which permeate many sciences of God’s creation.

 

Since a spiral graph travels both toward and away from its vortex, the numbers can be read either way, clockwise or contra-wise. That is, 61 becomes 16, 81 becomes 18, etc. Therefore, 81 is also the reflection of the parts per minute of the Hebrew calendar time calculations, which are 18 parts per each circle of one minute in time, or 18 x 60 = 1,080 parts per hour. Little wonder, then, that this number appears in the Psalm of music, festivals and Appointed Times, Psalm 81.

 

Now, if we put our thinking caps on, an analogy is manifest, in that that the vortex of this Spiral of New Testament activity overlays the place name and center of this regional circle, which is appropriately called, Galilee! That is, a name meaning “to complete the circle or circuit.” And it is through this map location, from which transverses the prophetic line of the 62 weeks of Daniel.

 

 

Jesus was born in Bethlehem, Judea, at the 14th year of the Metonic cycle, in the 404th year of the 62-week span of the prophecy (Dan, 9:25). Of course, He lived mostly in Galilee for the remaining 30 years of the 434 year period of the sixty and two weeks, which ended in the fall of 26 AD. 

 

For thousands of years, scholars and students of the Bible have puzzled over the three-segment division of Daniel’s 70-weeks prophecy. Parts of this puzzle are easily seen, but the whole of the framework of the 7, 62 and 1-week spans, many yet ponder.

 

However, if we view these numbers as if overlaid upon the pattern and pieces of the Golden Spiral Ratio, a form of greater clarity emerges. Most of us grasp the concept of the first seven weeks, which is the 7 x 7, or 49 years of the restoration of Jerusalem and the second temple period. Many also understand the last week of seven years is a span of time divided at “times, time and half a time (i.e. 3.5 yrs).” But, the logic of the number 62 is not so easily defined.

 

Nonetheless, 62 is the larger of the three segments of Daniel’s 70 -weeks prophecy, and we will see that it stems from the number artifacts generated by the symmetry of the Golden Spiral, straight from the artistic stroke of the hand of God.

 

In the New Testament account of the Levitical scribe, Mark, God manifests this evidence of His handiwork in a very profound way. Here, at the very outset of Mark’s gospel, he boldly, without explanation, brings together two quotes, seemingly unrelated, from two Old Testament prophets, whose prophetic accounts of timeline were diverged by more than 300 years. These are the prophets, Malachi and Isaiah.

 

These two prophets, in different ways, bring the timeline of the Messiah and the 62-week segment of Daniel 9 together. And here, in his gospel, Mark pulls both prophecies from their individual settings of context, bridging and molding them into one event, with a time focus precisely at the end of the 62 weeks - all this, merging at the region of the circular spiral and the harp-shaped sea - the land of the vortex spin, Galilee.

 

“Behold, I send my Messenger before Your face, who will prepare Your way before You. The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord, make His paths straight.”

 

The number of these two Scriptures, added together, is quite stunning. The quotes are from Malachi 3:1 and Isaiah 40:3. Add up the sum of these Scriptures and we get, 31 + 403 = 434, which, divided by seven, is the number, straight out of the book of Daniel, 62 weeks! Subtracting the 62 weeks from the 70, eight weeks remain, which is formed by the first seven weeks of the restoration period (539 to 490 BC), plus the finale of the one and last week, which is week 70. Thus, the sum of the two segment bookends, divided by the 62 weeks, is 7 + 1 = eight weeks, which is an octave (1-8) count. The form of the whole is, of course, 7 + 62 + 1 = 70 weeks.

 

 

This chapter and verse, Daniel 9:27, is a sum of 18 and a product of 9 x 27 = 81. These mirror numbers of image form the sum of 18 + 81 = 99, the seventh note of the open-string harp, and the number of months in eight years (i.e. 99 months), a double or 4-4 Olympiad count. 

 

This agrees with the eight parts of the seven seals of Revelation, in which the pattern is 6 + 1 (7 trumpets) + 1 (7 vials) = eight parts to the seven seals. That is, the seventh seal has two parts; the 7 trumpets + 7 bowl judgments. Therefore, the pattern is 6 seals + the 2 parts of the 7th = 8. In this seventh seal is also embedded the number of the Passover day, 7 (trumpets) + 7 (vials) = 14, the day of Nisan when Messiah was “cut off (sacrificed),” 44 months after the 62 weeks had ended. 

 

Therefore, the temple of the seven weeks of Daniel is linked to the temple of the eighth and 70th week of the prophecy, coming to pass at the division of the 22 chapters of Revelation, chapter 11. Here, John is given a reed to sum and calculate.   

 

But in his gospel account, Mark gives us the setting, time and place of completing the circuit, Galilee. This, at the coming of John the Baptist (the messenger) and Jesus Christ, in that first year of His ministry, 26/27 AD, 62 weeks after the prophecy of Malachi, 409 BC. That is, 7 x 62 weeks = 434 years = 62 weeks, the span from 409 BC to 26 AD.

 

Without getting carried away on another subject, the half-cycle, sub-octave of 62 weeks is 217 days. Where have we seen this number? It is the historic day of another prophetic artifact. It is the day of the great deluge of Noah’s time and the Genesis 6 account. For it was on this day, the second month, 17th day of the year that the fountains of the deep were broken up and the flood began.

 

There is one more metaphoric analogy of this text of circles. Note that the prophet said, “Make His paths straight,” (Mk. 1:3). This has a broad spiritual aspect, but how like God to trim the edges with a little physical metaphor of decoration to the pattern. It happens this way:

 

We have pointed out over and over again how the time pattern of the 19-year time cycle is a pictorial of the flow of music - in her natural course, adjusting the seasons of the Appointed Times, by the natural voice of the C major scale rhythm pattern, long-long-short-long-long-long-short. For the seven-note leap years of the Metonic cycle, this is the pattern, 3323332, for years 3, 6, 8, 11, 14, 17 and 19. By His clever and beautiful artwork, here is another example of God’s creativity, where He has blended together the spirals of music, the progression of time cycles and the fulfillment of prophetic history.

 

From this swirled, galactic graph of the musical octaves emerges a pattern pictorial that much resembles that found throughout nature itself. Scholars and mathematicians have named this rudimentary pattern of nature “the Golden Spiral or Golden Ratio.”

 

In this spiral graph of the musical tones, there are only 3 points on the circle graph through which a straight path may be drawn, from one side of the circle, passing through the vortex to a point on the other circle perimeter. This is the line, F to B of the scale, passing through the vortex. Please recall that Jesus' ministry found Him shuttling back and forth, by ship, over the Sea of Tiberius, from one shore rim to the other. Though not at the geographical center of the Galilee, nonetheless, this harp or lyre-shaped Sea of Galilee was much the hub and center of activity during Jesus’ ministry, though He also compassed the length and breadth of the entire region. 

 

This prophetic circle may be compared to the number eight, in which the end is a new beginning. In our analogy, Galilee, by metaphor of name, may also be likened to the circle of the 70 weeks of Daniel’s prophecy, with a circle of eight being formed by the end and beginning segments of 7 + 1 = 8 weeks. This leaves 70 - 8 = 62 weeks of timeline. Now this division, or timeline, has to do with a sacrifice, or the “cutting off.” This is akin to the cutting in half of the sacrificial animals of Genesis 15, and God’s covenant with Abraham. And on a related subject, a line also divides in half the last week of Daniel’s prophecy (7/2 = 3.5 years). So, like the seventh seal of Revelation, there are two parts - the seven trumpets plus the seven vials.

 

Continuing with the analogy, the cutting in half is a straight line or straight path diameter, which, in this case, is enclosed within the beginning and end periods of Daniel’s prophecy. That is, the circle is formed of 7 + 1 = 8 weeks of the 70 weeks, which is the rim that encloses a center line that passes through the vortex and becomes the straight line of division. This straight line becomes the 62 weeks of the Messiah prophecy. On the musical spiral, this line is formed by the notes F B (i.e. 62).

 

In these analogies, there is a back and forth metaphor of opposites.

That is, Galilee is a circle, but the prophet said, “Prepare the way of the Lord, and make straight His paths.” So, there is a circle, and the opposite of the circle is a straight line. Thus, the 62 weeks is a type of the circle division, and, in fact, spans the period diameter of the two temples, linking the temple of the seven weeks of 539 to 490 BC, to the temple of the 8th and 70th week, day-50 finale, and the two witnesses of the 11th chapter, half-division of Revelation. So the division in the key of A divides the musical octave at Wednesday-Saturday. Therefore, the statement in Daniel that Messiah would be “cut off” after the middle Wednesday line of the 62 weeks.

 

In the 27th book, Revelation, the half circle of the 3.5 day years (3.5 or 1,260 days), as well as the half of Revelation (11 of 22 chapters), are all divided in the same point and discourse of prophetic unfolding, a parallel to the 1,260 days of Daniel. In Revelation (chapter 11) even the witness is divided into two separate prophets, who “stand by the God of the whole earth.” Continuing the analogy, John is given a reed to measure and calculate the temple and those who worship therein.

 

But, again, in the key of C major form, there are two points on the circular rim spiral, through which passes a straight line, intersecting the circle center or vortex. These are the notes FB

(6-2). And, by this key of C form, these lines overlay with the 11th and 19th year of the Metonic cycle, separated by one octave (8 years). These are the fourth and seventh years of the seven-leap- year progression of the Metonic, the musical, key of C equivalent of the notes F B - the only straight line (path) numbers of the scale, six and two (F = 6, B = 2). But, in the key of C, F = 4 and B = 7, same as the rhythm order of the 19-year cycle.

 

But, the Metonic equivalents of the notes F and B are years 11 and 19, respectively, both being 13-month years, which sum to 13 + 13 = 26 months, the mirror image of 6-2. It should be added that the sum of 11 + 19 = 30, the age of Jesus when His ministry began at the end of the 62 weeks. That is, the fall of 26 AD, at the beginning of the 6th civil year of that Metonic cycle, when the first day of that lunar year was declared on Monday, the second day of the week. And, by beginning His ministry at the outset of the sixth year of the Metonic, this timing also fell coincident with the second note of the seven-leap-year cycle, since year one of the seven leap years always falls at the third year of the 19-year time cycle. Thus, year six of the Metonic is year two of the seven leap years (i.e. 6-2).

 

Next, we will display the 19-year Metonic, with the relationship of seven leap years and the seven-note scale of music. The scale, in the key of C, begins at the first of the seven leap years, that is, year three of the 19-year cycle. However, in the weekly cycle, Friday (F) is the 6th day note (11th year, 4th leap year). Then, from that progression, Monday becomes day two. Thus, year three becomes the note C of the musical scale, key of C rhythm, but it is also year one of the seven leap years, progressing in the pattern 3323332.

 

Notice in the graph how the seven leap years of the Metonic match the 3-4 pattern of the seven divisions of the Bible. That is, the Old Testament has three divisions, while the New Testament has four.

 

The Old Testament leap years sum to 3 + 6 + 8 = 17, while the four New Testament leap years sum to 11 + 14 + 17 + 19 = 61. Both are number patterns of prophecy, with 61 being the percentage of adjustments and patterns of the declarations of the lunar times of Scripture.

“X” = the 7 leap year placement in the 19 year Metonic cycle

3323332 = the 7 leap years, by the 5/2 note pattern

 

Please note something quite peculiar with the ratios of the last two lines of the Metonic graph. That is, 4/F6 and 7/B2. These occur, one over the other, and the mathematical divisions of these ratios are 4/6 = 2/3rds (0.666), and 7/2 = 3.5 years. Now, since decimal places merely determine the size, but not the form, by dismissing the decimal, we have 666 connected to 3.5 years or 1,260 days. Quite odd, unexplained and perhaps coincidental, yet it appears in the pattern.

 

 

In type, the above swirl of music is the Galilee spiral graph, represented here by the octave spin of the musical scale. As we have described, note that 62, the line of the Messiah’s weeks, is the only line on the graph which passes through the vortex, connecting two notes of musical scale. No other notes of the scale are bridged in this way, on a straight line, through the vortex, one to the other.

 

So, our 6-2 line is formed by Friday-Monday, or the notes F B, passing also through the 247-year mark point of the seven-day lunar date/weekday time lock. Then, this line passes through the spiral graph, typed here, by analogy, in the circuit name of the spiral cycle, Galilee. Observe that in an octave helix the lines can travel either direction, so our span, F B, or 62, can also be stated as 26. Now, F, depending on the octave, can be 44, 88, 176 hertz, etc.

 

Therefore, it is likely more than coincidental that the 91 months contained in the seven years of the 13-month leap years can be roughly stated as 2,688 days, or an exact multiple of 384 weeks. In like fashion, a 384-day year always ends on Monday, the number two day, which is one end of the line, 26 or 62, occurring precisely 1/19th of the time.

 

This day, Monday, is also aligned with 247 (see graph spiral), the number of the seven weekday reference cycles. From His day of selection as the Lamb of God, Nisan 10, 30 AD, in those four days, Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, Jesus passes through the Monday period, in route to the twilight Passover, in the early hours of Tuesday evening (i.e. beginning of Wednesday, day four).

This was an historic and prophetic week of epic proportion, marked by the sevens and the two-four sevens of the Biblical patterns.

 

In the spiral graph of the musical scale, the other end of the straight line, opposite Monday, is F or Friday, the sixth note of the weekly scale, bearing the number 88, in the third octave. And, the line numbers, 26 + 62 = 88, the double of 44, is the span of months in Jesus’ ministry (44), which began on day four and ended on day four. The regeneration of four, that is, to begin again, is the next harmonic multiple of 4 x 2 = 8, the day of Pentecost, the day of renewal or resurrection. Thus, the day of Passover (4) bears a direct connection to the day of the first resurrection (8).

 

Therefore, from our Golden Helix graph of Galilee comes the picture of that region, in the spiral of musical symmetrical form, through which a line of 62 weeks passes, being enclosed by the octave number of 7 + 1 = 8, the beginning and end weeks of Daniel’s 70 weeks prophecy. In sci-fi speak, by these analyses of circular travel, we are “going through the looking glass” into a territory of view, uncharted in any text book of history. 

 

Jesus Christ, in His own words, quotes the Scripture which identifies the timeline of the 62 weeks prophecy. We find this in Luke 7:27, and it is here that in one phrase, cited from Malachi 3:1, that Jesus, by the numbers of Luke 7:27, links the 62 weeks of Daniel’s prophecy of the sevens and week 70, directly to the 27th book of the sevens Patterns, Revelation.

 

Revelation, the 27th book of the New Testament, is the premiere book of prophecy, and the construct that holds its theme together is the number seven. Hence, we have the

 

connecting imagery to the 27th book, Revelation, straight from the words of Jesus beginning at Luke 7:27!

 

Here, in these number patterns, Jesus makes a direct connect between the 62 weeks of Daniel and the timeline of the last and 70th week, Revelation. Thus, 7:27 becomes bridged to sevens of the 27th book. Revelation, then, focuses on the years 483 to 490, the last seven years of the 490 years of the 70-weeks prophecy, unrolled by the seven seal, spiral scroll, which is handed to the Lamb of God (Rev. 5:7). 

 

Moreover, it seems that by this connection of Luke 7:27 to the visions of week 70 (Revelation), Christ is also implying that these revelations to John will come 70 years after the time of 28 AD, the year that Jesus spoke the words of Luke 7:27. If so, then the visions came to the apostle, John in the first year of the Metonic cycle, lunar civil year, 97/98 AD.

 

Now, please observe from the graph that this can represent the end view of any spiral roll or scroll. And, by that view, it can be seen that the spiral form, moving either way from the vortex, along a straight line, is a replication of the opposite side. Therefore, if, as in the book of Revelation, there are seven seals to the scroll, then the whole is represented by two sevens of reflection, each the mirror image of the other half-sphere of the spiral.

 

Then, the number placement of Revelation in the New Testament is a double of the seven seals, or simply, book 27. But if the whole is represented by two sevens, then the half becomes one seven, or simply the number 17, another prime number of the book (7 heads + 10 horns = 17). And, if we add this half to the whole, we have 17 + 27 = 44, the months of Jesus’ ministry, which is one of the octave numbers of the F or 6th note of the spiral, connecting directly to the 6-2 line of the 62 weeks.

This is three dimensional thought, but here we can plainly see that the ancient Greeks were correct. That is, since these patterns all converge and agree, this validates that the astronomy of the lunar cycles, geometry and music are all expressions that stem from the same source, which are the numbers of arithmetic or calculation, in every way, a creation of God.

 

Therefore, since the 27 books of the New Testament were transmitted to the world in the 24 letters of the Greek alphabet, we should not be surprised to see that alongside the manuscripts of the word of God in Greek, was also conveyed the patterns of prophecy. These patterns were sketched in the symmetrical form of the Greek, geometrical thought, and validated by Jesus Himself, saying, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.”   

 

With reference to the 19-year lunar cycles of the Metonic, there is one type of year which always transitions on the week day of Monday, day two of the 6-2 line (see spiral graph). This is the 384- day 13-month leap year, which begins on Tuesday, then rotates six days forward on the weekly cycle, to Monday, Tishri 1, the following year. This Tuesday-Monday cycle always follows the declarations of the 384-day year, and it occurs precisely 1/19th of the time in the 689,472-year moladot of the full Hebrew calendar cycle. Then, 1/19th of 689,472 cycle = 36,288, a number which sums to Revelation (i.e. 27). Embedded within this pattern is also the circle (36), the 62 weeks, and 88, the number of the F6 note of the FB spiral line, as well as 288, the 144 + 144 thousands of Revelation, chapters seven and 14.

 

With all of this in mind, please look again at the spiral graph and observe where all these number patterns merge. It is along the straight line, 6-2, linking the first seven weeks of Daniel’s prophecy to the last and 70th week, the book of Revelation. Note that all these numbers, the sevens of the 247, the 17, 27, Monday-Tuesday and the FB, 6-2 line, all merge at a common point, which is Monday, day two, the note B at the 247 hertz point of the spiral. Take away the calculations of the Hebrew and the music of God’s Appointed Times, and these beautiful, symmetrical patterns crumble, fall and cease to exist.

 

By this spiral of analogy, the graph pattern of Jesus’ message of Matthew 24 in this picture of swirl is most intriguing. Jesus Christ, on the Mount of Olives, left us with that great message of prophecy in the final days, just before His arrest and crucifixion.

 

The words of Matthew 24/25 appear to have been spoken on Sunday afternoon, Nisan 11, moving toward the twilight of Monday. It was here that Jesus’ 44-month ministry began to close, and at this point on the graph, counting to the Tuesday night Passover, is a symmetrical, graph-time span of 27 + 17 = 44, the number of His months of ministry. This is from 220 to 264 hertz, of which the latter is middle C (264), and in this case, the transition into the middle week period, Tuesday-Wednesday (i.e. 2-3). Remember, Matthew is the 23rd book of Biblical transition, Old to New Testament, and the Olivet prophecy occurs in the 24th chapter, just like the hours of the day, framed in the subject and question of time. 

 

Jesus, in this premiere chapter of prophecy, was asked about “the when” of time, in bringing in the kingdom of God. No man knows the day or the hour, He said, but the irony of this chapter chronology of placement is that by Hebrew calendar rules, it is at this juncture of the weekly cycle that the longest period of time adjustment ever occurs in lunar calculations. This time trip point, when it occurs, is just after 3:00 AM on Tuesday (9h 204p), moving into the final day portion before the Tuesday night Passover of 30 AD. Then, that time adjustment or postponement line extends to the time Jesus was entombed, sunset Wednesday eve, the beginning of Thursday, lunar date, Nisan 15. No postponement was necessary in the spring of 30 AD, but this is the symmetrical position where the more than two-day adjustment occurs, when needed.

 

As they listened to Jesus’ words of the Matthew 24 prophecy, with the 2/7th day of the week, Monday, approaching, His disciples had no clue that within 48 hours, on the fourth seven of the week (day four), a series of 7 x 4 = 28 separate prophecies about His life, message and sacrifice would begin to unfold, on and around the Passover of Wednesday, Nisan 14. Neither did they know that in about 70 years from that week, Jesus would come again, in the words of the 24 letters of the Greek alphabet, with a message to the seven churches. This, He disclosed in that great book of prophecy, the 27th book of the New Testament, Revelation. Vivid here is the linkage of the 247 patterns, from Matthew to Revelation.

 

Observe also that Matthew 24, by the prophetic sevens of Revelation, links also to Mark 13 and Luke 21. The latter chapters of Mark and Luke connect to the seven imagery in this way: chapter 13 of Mark bears the number of the seven leap year months of the Metonic cycle, and the 21 of Luke is a multiple of 3 x 7, the numbers of the seven seals, seven trumpets and seven bowl judgments of Revelation.

 

Therefore, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John’s Revelation form a quadratic witness, driven by the energy of the number seven.

And, of these four men, the apostle, John, including the fourth gospel account, wrote four books of the early New Testament. Then, much later in his life, he was also the scribe of the 27th book, Revelation. The number four seems to follow both John and his cousin, Jesus, and standing in the midst, they became author and scribe, as if, by this 27th book, the pattern was formed, 2(4)7. John had been largely responsible for canonizing the first 26 books of the New Testament, and then Jesus added the capstone of the 27th book.  

 

 

But, on the spiral graph, we can see by these analogies of God’s creative symmetry that this span of time, leading up to Jesus’ suffering, Sunday through Wednesday, in that year of 30 AD, crosses into the 4th octave of music. This was in the 44th month of His ministry, and the 4th Passover of the same, falling in the year of the crucifixion on day four of the seven-day week, Wednesday.

   

Now, there is a side point to this 6-2 relationship of the F B graph line, which is yet another 6-2 pattern of the 62 week imagery. It is this. When Passover in any lunar year falls on Friday (6), there is always a straight line connect, across the weekly circle, to the weekday of Monday (2), which is then declared to be Tishri 1, some five and a half months later. There is no exception, ever, to this 6-2, Friday-Monday linkage of the Passover-Tishri 1 weekdays in any lunar year, for which the day of Trumpets is declared on Monday.

 

And, in Mark’s account, in that very year, with the 62 weeks coming to an end, as the messenger, John the Baptist was traveling up and down the Jordan, Jesus came to him for baptism in the fall of 26 AD. Make straight His paths, the prophet said, and true to the number of the line, David’s Psalm 26 speaks of a walk of integrity (i.e. straight and narrow is the way).

 

As we might expect, the finishing touch to that finale of prophetic fulfillment came in a year in which these two important lunar declarations overlaid the very pattern which they depict. It was the end of 434 years, or 62 weeks, and Passover was declared on Friday (6). That fall, just days before Jesus was baptized, the day of Trumpets was declared on Monday (2).

 

 

Thus, the 62 weeks of Daniel came to an end, in a year when the 6-2 calculations and declarations of these two major days of the gospel message for the Christian age, Passover and Trumpets, were proclaimed on the weekdays of 6 and 2. It was the end of the 62 weeks, at the sixth year of the Metonic, and second leap year of the cycle. Passover day of that spring was declared on Friday (6), and the day of Trumpets later proclaimed on Monday (2), with Atonement falling two days later in the week on Wednesday.

 

Now, in the key of C, fourth octave musical speak, these 6-2 tone frequencies are 352 and 495 (FB, respectively), and amount to 352 + 495 = 847 = 8 + 4 + 7 = 19, the Metonic cycle. The laws of time and music are slightly askew at this point, with a double 247-year cycle being 494, while the same octave number of music is 495. So, the two points of these comparative sciences merge to a degree of about 99.8% accuracy.

 

But 495 hertz (note B) of the musical octave graph spiral is the point where all tones become exactly divisible by the common denominator, 11, the same as the mid-point (year 11), fourth leap year of the Metonic. In parallel to the seven-day weekly cycle, this 11th year of the Metonic is a type of the Wednesday, mid-week division of the seven-day weekly cycle. These are mirror reflections, one to the other, an all-in-one time chronology of prophecy and music, separate expressions of the same pattern, all blended in an agreement of numbers that comes very, very close to a 100% convergence.

(God’s Laws of the Universe)

 

Early in the development of the electronic age, physicists discovered this 495 B note frequency number to be a mathematical constant of the heavens, which knowledge was a necessity in understanding magnetic energy and radio waves. Therefore, this artifact and constant of how wave motions propagate through the universe is a hand-to-glove fit with the construct of the Golden Spiral of God’s creation.

 

In 1914, the inventor Edwin Armstrong discovered the principle of regeneration, or the harmonic multiplication of wave energy. Armstrong has been called "the most prolific and influential inventor in radio history," for it was from his discovery that the apparatus of radio and communication became a practical reality.

Fundamental to the process of producing and/or receiving the energy of radio waves is the coiled spiral inductor or helix. It operates on the principle of regeneration and resonance, and interfaces with the physics of the conductive transfer of invisible energy into a form that can be seen or heard by human perception. 

 

But Armstrong merely discovered and put to use a principle of God’s creation, straight from a spin-off science very much akin to that of the Golden Ratio spiral. From that early invention has flowed all of modern electronic communication. Only a few years after Armstrong’s discovery, the gospel of Jesus’ Galilean message began to be transmitted to the world, for the first time ever, via the airways of radio.

 

It is evident that the mid-point of the seven Metonic leap years, occurring at the 11th year of the cycle, a 13-month leap year, is the equivalent of the weekday Wednesday. This, because the 11th year of the Metonic, in type, divides the seven leap year cycle at the fourth seventh of the seven leap years, just as Wednesday is the fourth seven of the week.

 

Please recall that the 19-year cycle is formed of two segments or sub-divisions of time. These are the spans, 11 + 8 = 19 years, and each of these two segments of lunar time comes close to the solar year - one lunar span being in excess of about 1.5 days and the other being deficient of a lunar/solar merger, by about 1.5 days. It was from this knowledge of the lunar/solar time convergence that the Greeks formed their cycles of the Olympiad. Two Olympiads, in sequence, are formed of two four-year cycles, totaling 99 months in an octave, or eight years. The number 99 just happens to be the tone of the Sabbath or seventh note, G of the diatonic scale.

 

 

 

 

One segment of the eight and 11 years being deficient and one being excessive, by about the same amount of time, adding 11 and eight years together finds a close straight line sum of resolve for the luni-solar calendar, converging within about two hours every 19 years.

 

So, in a secondary fulfillment, by analogy of the time and region of setting, the paths for Jesus’ appearing and ministry were made straight, after the 60 and two weeks, at the place of the circle (circuit), Galilee. Here, in a profound way that is easily overlooked, God portrayed the artistic beauty of His creation, in the very weeks of Psalm, music and prophecy. That is, the 62 weeks of Daniel and the coming of the gospel to Galilee.

 

Yet, this is not just a calendar of time, a Psalm or a sheet of music, or a pattern of prophecy, but is something that is foundational to and encompasses all of creation itself. These different sciences are but the many expressions of the same God. And, just like that of an accomplished architect, we can recognize His work by the style of His buildings. And, this pattern "style" He embedded even within the 62 week segment of Daniel’s prophecy, which came to pass hundreds of years later, in the place and time setting of 26 AD, at the coming of Jesus’ ministry to Galilee of the nations.

 

The prophet Isaiah describes the coming of Jesus to Galilee, beginning with Isaiah 9:1,which chapter and verse is the number of months (7 x 13 = 91 months) contained in every span of the seven leap years of the Metonic cycle. This leaves 235 - 91 = 144 months for the 12 twelve-month common years of the cycle. But it was here, "by way of the Sea, beyond the Jordan," that God, with His patterns of the Golden Spiral, began a work incredibly profound!

 

But let’s return to the subject of the 235-month, 19-year lunar spans, commonly called the Metonic cycles. Though the Scriptures do not speak of this 19-year cycle, nor does the Bible specifically identify the interlace of the common and leap years, yet this construct and overlay of the Hebrew calendar patterns upon the lunar times is undeniable.

 

These calculations of the lunar Metonic and the Appointed Times of God, which lie within, were preserved by the Jews of the calendar court. These rules of the lunar calendar were then placed alongside the Biblical texts of the Masoretes at Tiberius, on the southwest shore of the harp-lyre-sea of Galilee. The oracles of calculation, preserved at Tiberius, less than 20 miles from Nazareth, were finally published by Hillel II, about 358 or 359 AD.

 

There are 12 Appointed Times in each year that are not annual Sabbaths. These, combined with the seven times of holy convocation (annual Sabbaths), are obviously 12 + 7 = 19, the same as the number of years of the Metonic. These 12 Times, are, of course, partly formed by the Passover, plus the five days of Unleavened Bread that are not Sabbaths. Hence, there are six days in the spring that are not Sabbaths of convocation, though they are annual Appointed Times.

 

 

Then, of the eight days of the fall festival of Tabernacles, six are not annual Sabbaths, though they are Appointed Times (see Lev. 23). Therefore, in the spring and fall of each year are 6 + 6 = 12, and the whole of the annual Times of God is then 12 + 7 = 19.

 

Therefore, in every year there are 19 annual Appointed Times to be observed by all Christians, according to the Bible. The weekly Sabbath is not annual, but is an Appointed Time, thus it falls in a different group. Also, the 14th Passover of the second month, Iyar, is not a Sabbath, but is an Appointed Time for those to which the day applies.

 

Thus, technically, there are 21 Appointed Times in all. Eight are Sabbaths, while 13 are not. But, the main point of focus is that there are 19 annual Appointed Times, which apply to all Christians every lunar year.

 

The seventh day weekly Sabbath is not directly connected to the annual lunar times, but counting that day, there are 20 distinct Appointed Times in every year. Of the 20, the 19 annual Times are displayed in 61 different ways of mathematical construct in the Metonic patterns.

 

On average, 610 times per 1,000 years, the dates of these 61 patterns are postponed, while, on average, 20 of the 610 postponements have to do with the 13 multiples of 19 years (i.e. 247-year periods).

 

These patterns, much like the laws of the seven-note musical scale, are set, calculated and managed by the tonic and rhythm of the sevens of time mathematics. Of course, the point is not to memorize the complexity of all these numbers, but to simply recognize that this is not some random happenstance, but rather it is God’s artistic design in the symmetrical artwork of mathematical law. Therefore, in every layer of evidence, one upon another, the interplay of these patterns continues to demonstrate that God is the great keeper of the universal clock.

 

Indeed, He has set Times, which are calculated and Appointed. So much so that there is a direct interplay between the two separate cycles of the circular orbs, which declare the Times. That is, the circle of the day and the circle of the hour.

 

“No man knows the DAY or the HOUR,” Jesus said. As is always the case with the word of God, His words are often embedded in a depth of many layers. For in each and every cycle of the moon’s period of waxing and waning, is found a picture and snapshot of the annual lunar cycle.

 

This is by the fact that in every lunar year of 12 months duration there is 12 x 29.53 = 354.367 days to the annual interval. And in every month, from the moment of the new moon to the full moon, 100% circular orb of illumination, there is, on average, 354.367 hours! To the nth degree of the fractions, these numbers are replicates, each of the other.

 

And, likewise, in each half phase (50%) of the moon’s cycle, is that number span of the length of time, every year from Nisan to Tishri 1. That is, 6 x 29.53 = 177.1835 days. Now, the first and third quarters of each lunar phase (50%) = 29.5305941/4 = 7.3826 days = 177.1835 hours are an exact replica, by number of hours, of the Nisan/Tishri half year (6 mos.) span of days. So, in number pattern, the half-moon, by number of hours, is exactly equal to the half year, by number of days!

 

Given these amazing parallels of the hour, day and year patterns of the lunar cycles, we might well expect that there is yet more to this story. We would be right. There is at least one more pattern, which is quite surprising, and it occurs at an exact frequency of 2/7ths, or two out of every seven years, and follows the pattern of the Wednesday, day-four Passover.

 

In those years when Passover falls on Wednesday, with the day of Trumpets declared on the weekly Sabbath, there is an Appointed Time which falls on the eighth day of the week, and on the eighth day of the month, at a count of 50% illumination of the moon’s orb. These are average numbers, based on the moon's mean cycle of 29.53 days.

 

The moon’s progression of position in the sky is on the order of about 180/14.765 = 12.19 degrees per day, in which is the west to east span of the 14.765 days of the full moon’s waxing cycle. Therefore, at 7.3826 days, which is just past the ninth hour of the eighth lunar day (3:11 AM), the moon’s position is straight up at about 90 degrees in the sky.

 

In any year, when Passover has been declared on Wednesday, day four of the week - this 177th hour of the month of which we speak, is the eighth of Sivan, and the eighth annual Appointed Time of the civil year. It is the day of 50% lunar illumination, when the moon is at the half point or 50% position of high noon (90 degrees) in night sky - the very day of the count to 50, Pentecost. 

 

Now, since we must count by whole days, the average of these 177.18/354.36 parallels of time becomes 177/354, the numbers of the six- and 12-month lunar year spans, respectively. We should not be too surprised that this combination of the mean or average digits of the hours of the lunar cycle sums to (1 + 7 + 7) + (3 + 5 + 4) = 15 + 12 = 27.

 

Hebrew calendar scholars have aptly concluded that the functioning of the lunar calendar has been based on symmetry and little else. That is, though it is a precise measure of astronomical lunar/solar physics, it does so by the symmetry of circular comparison. From this concept was developed the science called the “harmony of the spheres.”

 

In simple terms, we may conclude that the Hebrew calendar has been based on an instrument of the multiples and divisions of 44. This, since, by approximate number, the smallest part of the monthly cycle is that fragment of the hour of 793 parts, taken from the whole of 29d 12h 793p.

 

The 793 parts is roughly 44 minutes. Then, since, on average, each lunar year is equal to 12.368 solar months, this means that there are about 24.736 periods of waxing and waning of the lunar cycles per lunar year. Each period is therefore about 1/24.736 = 4.04% of the whole year, agreeing with the statement that the pattern of the lunar orb cycles runs on the number 44, 4.04, 4.44 etc.

 

The ninth multiple of 44 is 396, a number of symmetry which appears at the very point and average time of each full moon occurrence. The mean time of the full moon of every month falls at 14.765 days. This 0.765 days amounts to an average full moon time of the 18th hour and 22 minutes, or 12:22 pm in the afternoon of the 14th day of the lunar cycle.

 

It is at this average median then that we find the seventh number of circular symmetry, 396, the seventh tone, fourth octave of the diatonic scale, the note G of the fourth octave (396 hertz). This is so because the last element of the time of the full moon is a function of 44. Or, stated another way, the fraction of the full moon time is the 22 minutes past noon, which is the sub octave or one half of 44. Now, since there are 18 parts per minute in each minute of lunar time, then 22 minutes = 22 x 18 = 396 = the seventh Sabbath note, G of the tonal symmetry of music.

 

We are dealing with a base 60 system of counting, and the sixth multiple of 44 = 264 = the frequency of middle C of music. Divided in the midst, we might conclude that since the whole cycle of waxing/waning pattern for one month ends at 44, then the combined wax/wane period becomes 22/22.

 

Now, please recall that in ancient Greek symmetry the mathematical function of Pi was expressed as 22/7ths. This was the rough form of Pi (22/7), later refined to 3.14159.

 

But, in the view of what we have called the “rough” form of Pi, this was derived from the symmetry of a circle of 22, which would then have a diameter of seven. Hence, Pi, in such a case has a value of 22/7 = 3.1428.

 

Now, using the older form of Pi, as it was in ancient times, the circular size of the lunar month, being 29.5305941 days, results in a lunar cycle diameter of 29.3505941/3.1428 = 9.396 days. The sum of the four digits of 9.396 is 27, but look at the prefix and suffix divisions of the number.

 

They are 9 and 396, from which, if we divide 396 by 9, the result (44) is that we have traveled full circle back to our earlier statement that God’s method of timekeeping, the calculated Hebrew calendar, runs on the energy of the number 44. By inference, 44 is also a mathematical derivative of the seven day week - a progression of time circles, managed by repeating cycles of sevens.

 

These are patterns of symmetrical art form, from whence subsequently comes the connected statement of the calendar sages that the calculations of the lunar calendar are based on symmetry and little else.

 

This being the case, then 29.53 days divided by 22/7ths (3.1328) = 9.396 days, and 396/9 = FORTY-FOUR, and a circle of 360 degrees divided by 44 = 8.181818, or 8.27. If we look closely at the pattern imagery of 8.181818, in this also appears the number of the octave (8), which is a function of seven. But also embedded in the numbers is 18, the parts-per-minute of the calculated Hebrew calendar, as well as the number of the Psalm of scriptural standard, Psalm 81, in which appears the new and full moon festivals of the 354.367 hourly cycles of the lunar phases.

 

Now, 27 - 8 = 19 = the years of the Metonic cycle, but 27 + 8 = 35, an exact multiple of sevens. But 8 x 27 = 216. So what? Well, this is symmetrical thinking, rather than straight line reasoning. And, when we put on our thinking cap in this manner, some pretty amazing patterns become evident.

 

The number 216 divided by the hours of the full moon cycle, which is also the number of days in a 12-month lunar year, amounts to 216/354.367 - a number that is very close to 0.61, or 61%. As we know, 61 is the number of the different patterns of the 19-year Metonic cycle, and 61% is also the bedrock number which defines the frequency of occurrences in which the four postponement rules of Hebrew calendar calculations are active.

 

And, from the pattern of the seven Metonic leap years comes the sequence, 3323332, or long-long-short-long-long-long-short, as in the C major scale of music. Also, in this circular pattern, 3323332, twice appears the numbers of genome helix, 23.

 

We know that in time-keeping, days must be declared by whole numbers, and the only way of splitting the weekly cycle is by the division of three and four, or the contra, four and three. The mid- point then, counting from either end of the seven cycle, is going to be Wednesday or day four.

 

Now, there are four quadrants or days of the seven-day week which may be declared as day one of the seventh month, Tishri. This is an averaging process of symmetry employed to smooth out the ripple variants of the moon’s 5,000 plus known patterns of monthly travels around planet earth.

 

But again, as in the seven leap year order of the Metonic cycle (3323332), we can see a skip sequence averaging process. And, in a number fashion, as in the four quarters of the lunar cycle, four weekdays are chosen for Tishri 1 to balance, or smooth out the variables of the lunar-solar time relationship. The four days are Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Monday. In this four-part circle or cycle, we can see that when the last day, Monday, is coupled back to the beginning of Tuesday, the pattern becomes long-long-long-short. This, because Monday-Tuesday is only a one-day advance (short), while the remaining three weekdays days of declaration are all formed by an every other day, skip progression (long). 

 

If we look closely at this pattern we can see the 4/3 split or the half of the seven leap year pattern of the Metonic, derived from the division of 332 3332, for the seven years. This is long-long-long-short, and equates to the last four years of the seven leap years of the Metonic, which would be years 11, 14, 17, and 19. Note that there are two years (long) between the first three steps of the sequence, but only one year (short) between year 17 and 19. Note further a very familiar pattern, which is formed by the last four leap years of the Metonic, 11 + 14 + 17 + 19 = 61, the number of possible patterns of the Metonic cycle.

 

A second pattern is equally surprising. From this point of view, the first set of the Metonic division of the seven leap years is 332, which part of the sequence is NOT used in the four- point pattern of the Tishri 1 declarations. This would be years, 3, 6, and 8, which sum to 3 + 6 + 8 = 17.

 

Now, if we subtract that part of the sevens pattern of the weekly cycle, which is not used (332), from the four parts which are used (3332), the number becomes 61 - 17 = 44! That is, the pattern parallel, based on the sevens, is 332 = years 3, 6 and 8, and the remaining portion of 3332 = years 11, 14, 17 and 19 of the Metonic. Then, 61 - 17 = 44, which is the length of months contained in the ministry of Jesus Christ, fall 26 to the spring of 30 AD.

 

Once again, by the operation of the sevens rhythm of time averaging, we have come full circle back to the foundational fragment of lunar movement, the hourly fraction, 44 minutes. Such fractions drive a mathematical formula which then adjusts the weekday of the day of the Trumpets declarations, day one of the seventh lunar month, precisely 61% of the time - a chapter number of Isaiah (61) which proclaims of Jesus’ 44 month ministry, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me!”

 

But all this demonstrates how the number seven becomes involved in the science of circular symmetry, and therefore the obvious influence of the seven-day week in Hebrew calendar dates of the annual lunar cycles - dates specified and explained in the chapter number of transitions, Leviticus 23, a book formed of 27 chapters.

 

In our current age, as if blown from the turbulent gust of a prophetic wind, in the midst of a multiple eclipse period, the terror group, ISIS formed in the 17th year of this lunar cycle of the Metonic (2013/14), in the days of the 44th president of the United States.

 

While many have taken note of these heavenly signs of the lunar eclipse cycles of the spring and fall lunar festivals of the Hebrew calendar of 2014/15, some Jews consider it to have been even more ominous that in the year 2008, the 11th civil year of the current Metonic cycle, solar and lunar eclipses occurred in the fifth month of Ab.

 

In that very same year of 2008, on the 27th of Iyar, Jerusalem time, a double vote of 27 delegates of the DNC took place in our 27th state, Florida. The result of that vote literally paved the way for the rise to power of our now 44th president of these United States.

 

As one news commentator once said, the Clinton camp is yet baffled by the events of that period, when from out of nowhere they were blindsided by these moves, which effectively removed Hillary Clinton as front runner of the 2008 DNC nomination. Again, this fell on the weekend of day 27 of the second lunar month, Iyar.

 

 

In that year of 2008, Jewish Rabbis were disturbed by the timing of the sun and moon eclipses in the month of Ab (August), which were especially alarming because in that same year of the Metonic cycle (the 11th) in 70 AD, on the 9th of Ab, the second temple, on the weekly Sabbath, began to burn and was subsequently destroyed.

 

These are things of mere speculation, but strange occurrences involving historical events in politics may yet, in the near future, center on our 27th state, Florida. Regarding Florida, please recall the saga of the “hanging chad,” in the decision of the Bush/Gore election of 2000, the lunar civil year of the 9/11 event. In the fall of 2000 the election of our 43rd president tottered on the scale of balance for several weeks, and the outcome was determined by the votes of the 27th state, Florida.

 

We can draw no conclusion from such happenings, except to say that these number patterns have often occurred in the past history and chronology of prophetic events of the Bible. These parallels of pattern are quite alarming, and worthy of continued watch, considering the acute turbulence of the times in which we live.

            THE PATTERNS OF PSALM AND CALENDAR

 

The Levites of the Old Testament temple service were given the responsibility of both the calculation of the Appointed Times, as well as the lyrics and melodies of the Psalms. Many prophecies are embedded in the Psalms, and since the lyrics and melodies are part of the Scriptures, according to the words of the apostle Paul, in his epistle to Timothy (II Tim. 3:16), the lyrics of the Psalms, like all other words of the seven divisions of the Bible, were God- breathed! Therefore, both the lyrics (words) and music of the Psalms were inspired by the very breath of the living God. Little wonder then that it was said of Jeduthun, who served as a musician in the courses of David, that he prophesied with a harp (I Chron. 25:3).  

 

Though the rules of the lunar calculations are not listed and catalogued in outline form in the Scriptures, nonetheless, as we are demonstrating in these writings, every part and piece of the Hebrew calendar, by implication of fact and pattern, has been coded and scripted within the text of the word of God, et al. In fact, the calculations are a mirror reflection of Biblical flow and construct, portrayed in the mathematics of musical law.  

 

In these calculations we can see a hand-to-glove fit of how these marks of the times of the seven annual Sabbaths transfer from the lunar calendar to the orbs of music. One example is that the 793 parts of the 44-minute fragment of the lunar month is the approximate double of the middle C octave frequency of the seventh diatonic note G of music, at 396 hertz.

 

We speak in approximate symmetrical terms, since 2 x 396 = 792, not 793, as it is for the last and fractional part number of the lunar month. But seeing the month is 29.5305941 days in length, this slight difference of 3.33 seconds (one part) does not detract from the obvious overall pattern of the sevens influence. These numbers, 792 and 793 are agreed to the fact of 99.87%.

 

Astronomers tell us that the exact average of the lunar cycle is 29d 12h 792 parts and 2.7 seconds. Therefore, the micro fragment of 2.7 seconds is 81% accurate, missing the Hebrew calendar 3.33 parts per second by only 0.63 seconds each month. So, we are dealing with the hair-splitting of the fractional and variable movements of the earth and moon with respect to the sun and the influence of other celestial bodies in the universe. Thus, the closest whole to the fraction of 2.7 seconds is one lunar calendar part, rounded off to the value of 3.33 seconds. This (3.33) is the smallest increment of lunar time employed in the Hebrew calendar mathematics.

 

Therefore, if 792 is taken as a micro and approximate snap shot of the moon’s wax/wane cycle, the symmetrical division becomes 396/396, with the full moon at circle center. Since the full moon is the half-division of the month, then the fractional error of the last element of time for the full moon is not off by 0.63 seconds, but only the half, 0.315 seconds. Thus, for the sake of symmetrical speak; regarding the orbs of musical tones, we are in no great error to use 793 and the half division of 396 as the closest whole comparative numbers. Surprisingly, these frequencies of circular tones are both numbers of the seventh-note octaves of the musical scale.

 

By this analogy, if the bookends of each month are two new moons, then the new moons become 396-the seventh or G note of the musical scale. This yields the lunar form, 7/7, or 396/396 = 792. Thus, the end of every circle, as in the moons of the lunar cycle, or the octave pitch of music, is also the beginning of the same. This is just a simple fact of physics. Like God’s pattern of the salvation process, the end is a new beginning.

 

Divided at the half-circle, the numbers are then 7-4-7, with 4 representing the half circle of the week, the Wednesday Passover of Nisan, the 7th civil month of the lunar year, which year always begins with the 7th month of the sacred year, Tishri. Hence, we see how the circles of time are ordered by the revolving cycles of the sevens, and that 4 is the mid-number of the weekly division.

 

Therefore, by analogy of pattern, the circles of both the month and year becomes 7-4-7, with 4 representing the middle of the yearly orb, Nisan, for which, in prophetic years occurs the mid-week day, Wednesday (4) Passover, the half division of seven.

 

It is Nisan, of course, in which occurs the first full moon Appointed Time of the sacred year, and the average, astronomical fact is that this full moon occurs about 22 minutes and 1.35 seconds past noon on the afternoon of the 14th day of the month. Noon is the 18th hour, the 3/4ths or 270 degree point of the 24 hour 360 degree circle of the day.

 

Please recall that in that very hour of the 22-minute fractional time of the average full moon event, on the afternoon of the 14th day, when Jesus was on the cross, darkness fell upon Jerusalem for the space of about three hours. But, the average full moon occurs at 396 parts, plus 1.35 seconds past the 18th hour of the 14th day. That is, 18 parts per minute times 22 minutes = 396 parts, the 7th or G note tone of the 4th or middle C octave of the diatonic scale.

 

Circles of time may be large or small, but somehow, whether a year, a day or an hour, many of these patterns seem to end up with the same pattern form. The period at the end of this full moon fraction, by coincidence, sums to 396 parts, 1.35 seconds = 3 + 9 + 6 + 1 + 3 + 5 = 27 - the chapters of the Book of Leviticus and the number of the last New Testament Book, Revelation. 

 

A side note is this:  we know that any lunar year with bookends of 7/7 or Saturday/Saturday, is always a 13-month year of 385 days, an exact multiple of sevens, in which type of year Passover will always fall on Wednesday (4). Thus, such a year with 385 days is a 55-week year, with 55 being the frequency of the musical note tone A, at 55 hertz. So, concerning the lunar calendar and her calculations, we are dealing with a symmetrical time-piece, which has patterns of both tone and rhythm that are similar to the music of the Psalms. Perhaps this is because both the Psalms and the laws of timekeeping are God-breathed and inseparable. Time keeping, the music of the Psalms, and the preservation of the word of God were responsibilities placed upon the Levites. Therefore, it should be no surprise that music, the Psalms, and the outline of the Bible-all these different aspects of worship flow and spiral about the symmetry of the number seven, each being a pattern reflection of the other.

 

It is easy to get carried away with all these circular analogies, which at some point becomes a catch 22. But, as is said, a circle is a circle is a circle. The symmetrical form does not change. It’s merely a matter of the size of the diameter and circumference.

 

The fractional parts (3.33 seconds) make up the hour, which then becomes the circle of a day. The day becomes a seven-day week and the circle of the week becomes a month, and the circles of the month become the larger circle of the full lunar year. In this are also the half-sphere divisions - the half hour, the half week (Wednesday), the half month (full moon), the half year (Nisan to Tishri), and so on. We could also further break this down to the four parts of time, which is the four quarters of the moon, having 177.18 hours per quarter, from which also comes the span, Nisan to Tishri, or a circle of 177.18 days. Therefore, all of time is merely an accumulation of circles, each of a different size, and each enclosed, one within the other.

 

So, we can easily see there is a very definite design in the rotating sync of God’s circles of time, prophecy and the Biblical outline of the seven distinct divisions. In number, the finite waxing period of the moon’s illumination is a micro-snapshot of the much larger circle of the full lunar year, including also that of the period in which are embedded all the annual Appointed Times of the harvest cycle. In essence, given the four rules of postponement, all lunar dates then hinge upon the 24 hour clock, to know when the seventh lunar month begins.

 

Every month is composed of 24-hour days and weeks of seven days. Thus, in all things of time, we find that universal and familiar pattern of the 24 and 7, or 2-4-7 - the number of years in which lunar time has been locked to the seven-day weekly cycle. This, then, is something of God’s design, and a profound example of “the Day and the Hour.”

 

Now, these number patterns of the 247 and the previously discussed 427 are aligned with the seven-sealed scroll, which is unrolled in a 6/1 pattern, in the 27th book of the New Testament, Revelation, written down in the 24 letters of the Greek alphabet.

 

In Revelation 4, with the four six-winged living creatures, which were first described in Isaiah 6:1, are the 24 elders and their harps of the seven-string notes. With two wings the four creatures flew, and with four wings they covered their faces and feet. With their faces covered, the appearance of the Seraphim was somewhat concealed. Therefore, to man, this remained a mystery until described in Revelation 4.

 

But here, in John’s vision of Revelation, with their harps and bowls of incense, these four living creatures and the elders of the 24 courses of David sang a new song. And here the Lamb of God of the Wednesday, day-four Passover, was alone worthy to open the scroll of the seven seals. This He begins to do by the sequence of the 6 + 1 seals, and the sequence of the 6 + 1 angels, and the 6 + 1 trumpets. This follows the previous six divisions of the Bible, in which Revelation becomes the seventh division. Therefore, we have the pattern of 6 + 1 = 7.

 

In both Isaiah 6 and Revelation 4, the Seraphim sang, “Holy, holy, holy,” Lord of hosts. And Isaiah, having his lips cleansed by a live coal from the altar, was told to proclaim, “Keep on hearing, but do not understand,” (Isa. 6:9). Thus, his prophecy continues and a mystery and riddle to the world at large remains, even to our day.

 

Now the Seraphim (living creatures) each had six wings, arrayed in rows of three on each of their two sides, perhaps a pattern of the 3/2 transitions of the seven leap years of time (3323332). So, the four creatures with their combined total of 24 wings are ever- present at the throne of God, amidst His seven lamps of burning Spirit, and the 24 elders of the 24 courses. In the years of the temple service, the 24 courses all served on the seven annual Sabbaths, another form of 24-7.

 

Therefore, as in all things of the prophetic patterns of the Scriptures, is the layer upon layer use of the 6/1, 7, 4 and 247 shadow outlines of the Appointed Times, determined always by the four corners of time. These are the four days of the week which determine the Tishri 1, seventh month declarations.

 

It was at Jesus’ baptism, in this seventh month, Tishri, in waters flowing from the harp-shaped Sea into the river Jordan, that this riddle of harp and psalm begin to unfold, at the Appointed Time, 26/27 AD, a year of the seven x seven + one = 50 = Jubilee.

 

Isaiah’s riddle of the hearing, but not hearing, was prophesied at the benchmark of Isaiah 6:9, 756 BC, fourth year of that Metonic cycle. God dwells on a Sea of Glass, and there, with Isaiah’s vision of God’s throne (Isa. 6:1), the prophet saw God in the midst of the six-winged Seraphim. Isaiah was told to prophecy, though his words would be as a riddle or mystery, without understanding (Isa. 6:9).

 

But then, almost 800 years after the prophecy of Isaiah 6:9, at the end of week 69 of Daniel’s prophecy, the time was fulfilled, and the mystery of God’s plan began to open with Jesus’ ministry around the harp-shaped sea of Galilee. About 72 years later, near the end of the first century AD, the mystery was more fully revealed to John in his vision of the Sea of Glass. The Seraphim of Isaiah, chapter six (i.e. the four living creatures) were also present in John’s vision of Revelation, but added were harps and the 24 elders surrounding the throne of God. 

 

These images of the 24 elders, the four living creatures and the seven Spirits of flame seem to parallel the concept of the sevens of the 247-year lunar cycles. On average, the weekday cross point of the 247-year cycles vary from the seven-day lunar-date time lock about 4.94 years out of a 247-year span of time. By extension, this further sums to about

 

20 lunar day/date declarations per 1,000 year periods, which do not follow the same day of the sevens (the week), at intervals of 247-year periods.

 

So, in these 247-year periods, how many months are contained in the 4.94 years which do not fall on the same day of the week? This is simple multiplication. Since, on average, there are 12.368 lunar months per solar year, then 4.94 x 12.368 = 61.1 months = the numbers of the fulfilled prophecy of Isaiah 61:1 and Luke 4:21. Interestingly, in the latter Scripture and verse Luke 4:21 are the numbers of Daniel's fast of Daniel 10 (Nisan 4, continuing for 21 days). At the end of his 21-day fast, on the 24th of Nisan, a weekly Sabbath (a seven), a glorious angel appeared to Daniel, by the river Tigris. This Nisan 24 Sabbath day, by day of the month and day of the week, is yet another form of the prophetic pattern, 24 7!

 

Now the prophecy of Isaiah 61:1 was fulfilled in the sixth year of the Metonic, in the first year of the land Sabbath cycle, and on the first day of the week, Pentecost. Therefore we have the pattern 6.1.1, in a year of Jubilee, 26/27 AD, by year (6), year (1), and day of the week, Sunday (1).

 

On average, there are 61.1 months or 4.94 years out of 247, for which the mathematics and postponement rules activate the 2% variations of the 13 cycles of the 19-year Metonic (2% x 247 = 4.94). Why so ordered? Well, it is a mystery, which the world will never fully understand until the days of the seventh angel and the seventh trump of Revelation. In the meantime, the full disclosure of these parables of God’s truth is revealed only by the revelation of Jesus Christ, who is the Spirit of prophecy.

 

There is yet one more important occurrence of this 6/1 pattern, which is this. When the 14th Passover falls on the weekday of Wednesday, this places the Wave Sheaf day, first day of the count to Pentecost, on Nisan 18. This demonstrates how the life, death and purpose of Jesus Christ are inseparable from the basic elements of the calculated Hebrew calendar, timekeeping and her Appointed Times. It happens in this way:

 

We are dealing with averages, but the energy of time-keeping stems from the molad number, the mean or average of every month, 29.53 days. Then, by the prophetic day-four Wednesday Passover and the subsequent Wave Sheaf of Nisan 18, we have an amazing relationship of that day with respect to the percentage of the whole month.

 

This relationship becomes day 18 divided by 29.53 and equals, at two decimal places, the fraction, 0.61, or 61%, the exact percentage of time that the calculations of the Hebrew calendar are adjusted at the four possible days for the first day of the seventh lunar month, Tishri.

 

The Nisan 18-day of the Wave Sheaf results in the declaration of Pentecost falling on Sivan 8th, both dates stemming from a 14th Wednesday Passover. Again, by percentage of the month, at two decimal places, the eighth day is 8/29.53 = 0.27, the number of books (27) in the New Testament and the number of the last book, Revelation. The sum of these

 

two numbers, 61 + 27 = 88, the double of the 44 months of the ministry of Jesus Christ, and the number of the sixth note of the musical octave frequency, F (Friday).

 

Pertaining to the 61% adjustments of the Tishri 1 (Trumpets) dates, either a one or two-day delay (postponement) is enacted when these adjustments occur. And as we have discussed, based on the two spans of the 247-year anomalies (i.e. two days) a time period of about 14,000 years is required for these two-day adjustments to occur on the 247-year periods. 

 

The one-day adjustment at the 247-year periods requires about 7,000 years of the 905-part reverse slippage, before the Tuesday to Monday correction takes place. These two and one-day moves, by days of the week, are, of course, created by the postponement rules of the Hebrew calendar, which occur 61% of the time, for all lunar dates, as influenced by the day of Trumpets.

 

So it is here, at Tishri 1, that time is adjusted by one or two days (1/7th or 2/7ths), as linked to 7,000 or 14,000 years, respectively. These adjustments are then 1/7 or 2/7, and the numbers sum to 17 + 27 = 44, the months (44) of the ministry of Jesus Christ.

 

Based on the two patterns of the (2) and (1) cycles, the total time to enact all adjustments of the 6/1 patterns of Tishri 1, for the four possible weekdays of declaration, becomes 14,000 + 14,000 + 14,000 + 7,000 = 49,000 years, a multiple of 7 x 7. This (49K) would cover one cycle of the 247-year adjustments for the four days of Tishri. In the full cycle the result of these operations would be 689,472/49,000 = about 14.07 circles of the 49,000 year cycles, per the entire span of the Hebrew calendar 689,472 year orb.

 

The (2) of the Thursday/Tuesday and the (1) of the Tuesday/Monday adjustments will be micro-managed by rules three and four of the postponements. But speaking in broad terms of percentage, the pattern remains, on average, a 6/1 seven-day week set of mathematical mechanics.

 

The 247-year spans are locked to the seven-day weekly cycle 98% of the time for all lunar dates, so it would follow that the 2% of time when the 247-year periods are adjusted also occurs by the operation of a seven pattern. That is, 6/1 or 6 + 1 = 7.

 

Now, Psalm 49 has 20 verses, the number of time corrections in the 4.94, 2% cyclical pattern per 1,000-year span of time. On average, there are 20 adjustments per 1,000 years.

 

Four periods of 247 years equals 988, so embedded in Psalm 49:4 is the linkage of seven to 247, and the eighth multiple of 247 = 1,976, the same whole numbers as the 19.76 time corrections per a 2 x 4 9 4 or 988 period of years. Again, these 2% adjustments factor out to about 20 times per 1,000 years.

 

Now, there are things hidden from the world which God chooses to disclose to those called, chosen and faithful. Seven is the number of covenant, therefore God uses this number as a sign to those to whom He reveals His plan and purpose. We see this in so many ways throughout the entire 49 books of the Scriptures. So, God seals, conceals and hides things from the world, and He does so by the patterns of the sevens. In covenant, He also uses these same patterns of the sevens to affirm, to open and disclose.

 

This principle of prophecy and the seven-day week, Peter conveys to the children of promise, in his second epistle. This is describing God’s view of time, which is a mystery.

 

“Now, beloved, do not let this one fact be hidden from you: that with the Lord, one day (of the seven) is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day,” (II Pet. 3:8).  Note that this mystery, Peter reveals by the elements of the seven pattern.

 

“Behold, I show you a mystery” (something hidden), Paul wrote in I Corinthians 15:51. So, here, that which is concealed from the world shall be revealed at the last or seventh trumpet. In this case, the riddle or mystery disclosed is that of the first resurrection.

 

This use of the sevens agrees with the statement of the fourth Book of the Psalms, a Book of 17 chapters (songs), which first Psalm of Book four has 17 verses. It is here, in Psalm 90 and verse 4, where this prophetic day, spoken of by the apostle Peter, is first defined, and done so by the pattern 4 9 4. That is, the 4th Book, Psalm 90 and verse 4 - a hand-to-glove agreement that the act of concealing and revealing is prophetic, and that it involves the number pattern of the sevens of music and time calculations.

 

By these examples in the fourth book of the Psalms we see how God often makes of the prime number, 17. In the fourth gospel of John are recorded those profound words of Jesus, Who wrote, “Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.” (Jn. 17:17).

 

Akin to the inference of the number seven in Psalm 49:4, Book 4, Psalm 90:4 also implies the seven days of the seven thousand years. So, in these songs of melody and psalm we find the construct of the sevens of time and the sevens of music (Psalms). In these examples we can also see the association of the numbers seven and ten, which sums to 17, a prophetic pattern and combination which occurs frequently in the Bible.

 

Therefore, embedded in the increments of music and time, in the Book of festivals and the Appointed Times of harp and song, (Psalms), was sealed these prophetic patterns. All of this is as if awaiting a time of disclosure - a riddle to be opened and understood by the sevens imagery of the repeating octaves of the lyre, with her rhythm and tones of the Sabbaths and Times of God.

 

We have before demonstrated that in 247 years approximately 4.94 years are adjusted with respect to the seven-day weekly cycle. Thus, in God’s prophetic day of 1,000 years, this 4.94 or 2% correction takes place about 20 times - the number placement of that profound Book of prophecy, the Book of Daniel, the 20th Book of the Old Testament, which is the overlay and parallel consort to Revelation.

 

This 20th book of the Old Testament was sealed (hidden). Daniel was told to “shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end (Dan. 12:4). But, by the addition of seven to the placement of Daniel (20 + 7), the last book of the New Testament is appropriately called the Revelation of Jesus Christ.

 

Thus, Daniel and Revelation are a lock and key set. With 20, the words were shut! But, by the number 27 (20 + 7), the sealed scroll of the seventh division, Revelation, was opened by the Lamb of God. With these two books, then, comes the count of 20 + 27 = 47, and the combination of the two books and their sum is 2 47.

 

On the 247-year seven-day cycles, time is adjusted about 20 times per 1,000 years, which is one day of God’s 7,000-year plan. And, in 7,000 years’ time, on the 247-year periods, time is adjusted 20 x 7 = 140 times.

 

In these patterns are the pen strokes of prophecy; these are the notes of harp and Psalm, and these are the secrets of the lunar calendar and God’s Appointed Times. Always circling around these mysteries of time and covenant is the number seven, and especially the prophetic Wednesday of the new covenant of the sevens. In the calculations of time, this fourth day, Wednesday Passover occurs 2/7th of the time for all lunar years, which form is embedded in the pattern of 20 and 27, the books of sealing and the opening.

 

And, within the construct of 20 and 27 dwells all the numbers of the pattern, 4 9 4 and her sub octave, 2 4 7. These are the 24 letters of the Greek alphabet, the 24 hour days of the covenant and Appointed Times, the sevens of the musical Psalms, the seven divisions of Scriptures, and sevens of the seventh division, New Testament book, Revelation. 

 

So, at the first day of the seventh lunar month, Tishri, the micro- fragment of 2.7 seconds (Revelation) and the 44 minutes (793 parts) is adjusted 20 times in the prophetic 24 hours of God, and the sum is 20 + 24 = 44 parts, the last fragment part of whole minutes of the lunar cycle. And, this 44.0555 (793 parts) x the Hebrew halek, 3.33 = 44.0555 x 3.33 = the nearest whole number, 147, the lifespan of Jacob, father of the tribes of Israel.  

 

So, there are things to be shut (sealed), where no man can open, and there are things to be opened which no man may shut.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 8

 

 

PUBLICATIONS OF THE BIBLE

(And the 247-year Cycles)

 

Now, from the foundation of the New Testament church in the civil year 29/30 AD, until the first full blown study Bible published by converted church scholars in 200/5/06 AD, there were precisely eight cycles of 247 years (1,976 yrs.).  Both bookends fell on the ninth year of the Metonic, Wednesday to Wednesday, by weekday of the Passover declarations. Remember, when refined and translated faithfully, these ongoing publications of the Bible continue a process that is God-breathed!

 

But the seasonal drift, with respect to solar time, for that 1,976-year span from civil year 29 to Tishri 1 of 2005 AD was one week, from Wednesday to Wednesday. That is, the Passover of 30 AD was in the first week of April, with the Passover of 2006 in the second week of April, Gregorian calendar times - both years falling in the ninth year of the Metonic, by the 247-year spans. This is 104 Metonic cycles, or 24,440 months, a number sum of 2 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 0 = 14, a double seven. It is obvious, then, that these eight spans of 247 years bear the micro-octave and sub-octave artifacts of 8 x 247 = 1,976, and the octave half = 988 years = 4.94 x 4 = 19.76 years, a decimal derivative of 1,976.

  

From the movement of the scholarship of the man who some proclaim to be the father of the Reformation on the European continent, the German, Kalkar (Coulter in English) - a disciple of the thoughts of Occam and Wycliffe, it yet took another seven centuries of time to produce a Bible that was not only in English, but also published by an actual church of God - which texts, appendices and footnotes amplified and explained the Scriptures within context of the Appointed Times of God. Called the Faithful Version,” this was the first ever full blown translated and published Bible, with all of her 49 books in the original order.

 

So, we are now in the ninth period of the 247-year cycles since the days of the ministry of Jesus, and we are now in that span of time when will occur the 44th correction to the 247-year cycle, by the mathematics of Psalm 49:4 (i.e. 4.94 days per 247 years).

 

The Hebrew Halek of time counting is the number 3.33, the number of seconds per one part of time, of which there are 1,080 per hour. The prophecies of the book of Isaiah span 66 chapters. Taken as a percentage, 66 x 33.3% = 66 x .333 = 22, the chapter and verse (Isa. 22:22) which is where we find the key that opens and shuts. No rocket science here, just simple laws of grade school mathematics. True, coincidence is always possible. But, in these endless examples found in music, prophecy and time, as correlated by the word of God, by these many patterns, we are surrounded by an overwhelming cloud of witness.

 

Now, as we know, in the mystery of all mysteries, Jesus Christ chose to unseal the mystery of God by a New Testament book, which is quite revealing. It is a stand-alone and second great division of the Biblical books of prophecy. That is, the second division of the whole Bible is that of prophecy, and the last book of the New Testament is 27, the seventh division of the Bible and the capstone book of prophecy. Thus, the prophetic divisions bear the number 2-7, and by the New Testament number of placement, the 27th Book is aptly called Revelation - a book written in the 24-letter language of the Greek alpha and omega - a text and scroll all about the pattern of the sevens. Prophetically speaking, then, the Bible has been laid out in such a way that it has multiple reflections, one enclosed within the other. These patterns of art form are an incredible construct and Revelation of understanding.

 

It is odd that with respect to time, we often speak of this pattern totally unaware. That is, in day-to-day conversation we frequently say, 24/7 - numbers right out of the construct of the opening chapters of Revelation. And, these are connected numbers of the Wednesday Passover, an important mark of prophetic time. This is because when Passover falls on Wednesday, Trumpets is on Sabbath and Atonement on Monday. So, within these connected links of alignment, we have the numbers by days of the week, a mix of 247 - Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.

 

Revelation is the seventh division of the Bible, and falls at the end of the New (or second) Testament. Hence, the numbers of the book, two and seven = 27, the last book of the second Testament, and the seventh division of the 49 books of Scripture. As with the three and four-day divisions of the week, so is the pattern of the seven divisions of the Old and New Testaments. The Old Testament spans divisions one to four, and the New Testament spans divisions four to seven. The sum is then, 1-4 + 4-7 = 61.

 

The Old Testament contains the first three divisions of the Scriptures, with the remaining four being found in the 27 books of the New Testament. Thus, the four gospels begin the fourth division, progressing in story flow toward those all important events of the day four, Wednesday, Passover day, 30 AD.

 

The ministry of Jesus spans a period of 44 months, and ends with 44 days - with the 44-day count, inclusive from His day-four crucifixion of Nisan 14, to His ascent from the Mount of Olives, Thursday, Iyar 27, 30 AD.

 

Jesus is the slain Lamb (day four) Passover of Revelation, standing at the vortex of the circle of the seven lamps of the seven churches.

By this pattern, He is the 4 of the 2(4)7. Moreover, by this same four pattern, the elements of the fourth day, in the Genesis 1:14 account, are to be struck at the blast of the fourth Trumpet of Revelation (Rev. 8:12). At this fourth of the seven trumpets, in parallel with the day-four time mark of the Genesis account, the elements of time are, at the blast of the fourth trumpet, dramatically altered (Rev. 8:12). Jesus’ ministry actually began with this pattern of four. That is, the Day of Atonement 26 AD fell on the weekday of Wednesday (4). His ministry spanned 44 months and 4 days, ending on Wednesday (4), 30 AD. Then, 44 days from the Wednesday crucifixion, He returned to the heavens.

 

 

Added to these mysterious patterns of 4 and 44 is this: in years when Passover falls on the fourth day of the week, Wednesday,  this sets up the bookends of the eight-day Passover and days of Unleavened Bread period. That is, the pattern is 44, with Passover falling on Wednesday, and the last day of the span, the annual Sabbath of the last and seventh day of Unleavened Bread also declared on Wednesday, the fourth day of the week. This also means that it was on the fourth day of Unleavened Bread, 30 AD, in the exact center of the eight-day Passover period, when the resurrected Jesus was first seen of His disciples.  

 

In the story flow of the book of Revelation, the time sequence of the seven trumpets is split by the 4/3 pattern of the fourth trumpet and the three woes of the three remaining trumpets. Thus, in many ways, by the sevens of the week, and its division of day four, amidst these numbers of the 247-year spans, Jesus’ shadow moves about in the Appointed Times of the lunar calendar calculations.

 

Psalm 49, in reference to the sevens, falls at day 49 of the Pentecost count, which is the weekly Sabbath, a seven. In that pictorial, the next day (Psalm 50), then, is Pentecost. So, here is a pattern overlap, day 49/50 of the count to Pentecost, overlaid upon Psalm 49/50. In the time setting of Revelation 10:7, the mystery or riddle of Psalm 49:4 is finally and fully disclosed in the days of the seventh trumpet, leading up to Pentecost.

 

Now, there is an interesting correlation connected with this day 40 of the count to Pentecost, 30 AD, with respect to Psalm 40. It happens in the manner: from Psalm 40, Paul, in Hebrews 10:5, extracts the quote: "a body you have prepared for Me." This "body" of Heb. 10:5 agrees with the "sacrifice" of Psalm 50:5, and it was on day 40 of the count to Pentecost, as if overlaid upon Psalm 40, that this "body," Jesus Christ, now Spirit-born, ascended back into the heavens on Thursday, Iyar 27th. Beginning with Nisan 18 (the Wave Sheaf day), day 40 falls on the day Jesus returned to the heavens, 10 days before Pentecost.

 

Therefore, we see how the seven string notes of the Psalm (4)(9)(4) riddle begin to open the mystery of the day Wednesday (day 4) Passover of 30 AD, in that year (9) of the Metonic, leading, by a count of 50 days, to the 4th Appointed Time of the spring holy days. Thus, the end result of the Sacrifice of Jesus was bound up in the pattern 4 9 4, connecting His day of crucifixion of that ninth year of the Metonic to Pentecost and the first resurrection, immediately following the 4 9 days of the seven weeks. So, here, in the counting of time, we have a plethora of the 494 stream of patterns.

 

This sequence of events, leading to Iyar 27, 30 AD, actually began on the 10th day of Nisan, on the seventh day of the week, and was aptly stated by the angel of Revelation 10, as coming to the full disclosure of the "mystery" at the text line of Revelation 10:7, in the days of the seventh trumpet.

 

Paul gives further amplification of this riddle in writing to the church at Corinth. Here, Paul states in I Cor. 15:52, "Behold, I tell you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we

 

shall all be changed - in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last (7th) trumpet. For the trumpet (the seventh) will sound, and the dead will be raised!"

 

Now, including the weekly Sabbath day, there are nine prominent Appointed Times. Though included in the whole of the nine, the Sabbath day and Passover stand as unique and separate, in that both are distinct from the seven annual Sabbaths of congregation.

 

By and within the bookends of the fourth day Passover and the fourth annual Appointed Time of Pentecost, counting from Passover, between the covers of the 4/4, stands nine days or events which picture God's plan of salvation for all of mankind. That is, the first resurrection is a 4/4 or 8th day event, but within the entire sketch of the annual cycle is embodied the full course of the nine Appointed Times. Hence, while there is the larger circle of the year, there is also the smaller capsule of the seven weeks of harvest, Pentecost, and the first resurrection. Then, within the whole of the cycle are contained both the first and second resurrections.

 

So, in this is a mystery and a pattern, and the number is 4 9 4. That pattern of plan is further displayed by the 44 months of Jesus ministry, from day four of Atonement, 26 AD to the day-four Passover of His sacrifice. Then, yet further outlined by His 44 days at the finale of 30 AD, is the time span from the crucifixion to the ascent from the Mount of Olives on the 44th day of that event, Thursday, Iyar 27.

 

No man could have mapped out this scheme of mathematics. We can only stand in awe of its existence. Jesus that Light out of Zebulon of Galilee is, by definition of the place name, Galilee, the eighth or complete number of circle. Galilee literally means “to complete the circle or circuit.”

 

Therefore, in His 44-month ministry and in the finale of the pattern of His 44 days of 30 AD, He indeed completed the circle (4 + 4 = 8). But, He is yet to engage in the final battle with the eighth head, the son of perdition, described in Revelation. In the fall of 26 AD, while in the flesh, Jesus, in a fore type of the final event, engaged this eighth head for 40 days. This was the goat in the wilderness, Satan himself. But, in the coming conflict of the Revelation account, it will be Spirit verses spirit, a much greater battle.

 

True, man numbered her chapters, of which there are 22 in the book of Revelation. But even here, by the pattern, is contained the whole. That is, the 27th book has 22 chapters, and this seventh division of the Bible, by number and chapters = 27 + 22 = 7 x 7 = 49, the number of books of the Old and New Testaments, of which there are seven divisions.

 

Thus, the last book of the Bible encapsulates and reveals the whole of the 49 books, which really is the thread and story of day four, Passover Lamb. Thus, we have the 49 books of the Wednesday (day 4) story - the mystery of Psalm 49:4, and the pattern 4 9 4.

 

So by the Greek alphabet (24) and number of content (7), Revelation's second number of identification is simply 24/7, or 24 and the story of the covenant number and interplay of the sevens, written in the text by the 24 letters of Greek. And, this Monday book, the second of the books of prophecy, the seventh division of the Bible, by open string pitch is 27 removed from Sunday, the note A, at 220 hertz. That is, 220 + Revelation (27) = 247 = Monday = note B, the seventh church, Laodicea, and the day (Monday) of the calculated Hebrew calendar’s anchor point in time.

 

The previous points all focus on 247, the Greek alphabet and the seven-day week (24/7), plus that mysterious number, 17 = 247 + 17 = 264 = middle C of the natural voice range. So, we have a book all about the battles of a harper, David type (Jesus Christ), who sounds the seven-string patterns of Revelation, while confronting the seven heads and the 10 horns = 17.

 

Again, this is quite an interesting thing with the 4.94 years of the 247-year cycles, Psalm 49:4 and the 27th Monday, B note book (Revelation). Here, in the 24 letters of Greek, comes the spinning wheel of the many sevens, turning throughout her pages. "I will lend my ear to a parable; I will open my riddle on the harp," the Psalmist said (Ps. 49:4). No book of the Bible exceeds the chapters of Revelation in the fulfillment of this verse of the Psalms.

 

So was written the finale, penned by Jesus Himself, the capstone discourse of the prophetic sevens of the book, Revelation - the lamps, seals, seven churches, the Sea of Glass, with harpestry, the seven trumpets and the seven bowl judgments. This 22-chapter book is truly a majestic panorama of the harmonic energy of the sevens.

 

Now, speaking of harmonics and sevens, let’s briefly explore a bit of music and time trivia, which demonstrate how the physics of God's creation overlaps into the harmonic science of music and the calculations of the lunar time piece of Biblical history.

 

Musicians often do a bit of ornamentation in plucking the strings of musical instruments. In playing, those with skill and a keen ear pluck the open string at its mid-point, creating a harmonic, second octave pitch of the open string. The string must be plucked at the exact center to get the effect of harmonic resonance. This is done at the half-cycle or sub-harmonic of the string length, and to the ear, this mid-point pluck, stopping the string at the half, doubles the pitch, even though the string has not been fretted.

 

Now, just as in the time-keeping of lunar cycles, this must be perfectly done, or else the end result will be noted by those with an ear to hear. In the visual of the month, wrongly calculated, a parallel discrepancy of this principle shows up by having the 15th moon occur on the 16th, 14th, etc., off pitch with the lunar date 15th phase of the moon. Thus, though one function is that of astronomy and the other music, by these similar principles, both time and music can be off pitch, if not skillfully handled.

 

Indeed, even the craftsmanship of the musical instrument construction can be checked by this very same analogy of time- keeping. That is, pluck the open, full string of the annual, Tishri to Tishri cycle, then immediately press the string down at the seventh G-note month, Nisan, fretting it at the sub-octave point of the new moon. Nisan is the mid-point of the lunar year and her moon dates should nearly perfectly overlay with that of the bookends of the Tishri 1 dates for two consecutive years of time. The year is the string length, and Nisan 1 is the exact center of its pitch.

 

If the length of the year has been properly chosen, then fretting it at the half point, the sub-octave Nisan, will find the moon frequencies of Tishri and Nisan in perfect pitch. In this case, there is no substantial detectable harmonic discord of error for the lunar date, percentages of illumination overlay, just as would also occur in the case of the sound of musical tones. That is, the date properly declared with respect to the moon’s illumination yields a tone that is not flat or sharp, but dead-on true pitch with the lunar dates and illumination phase. In other words, the 15th moon of the AG notes, 1-7 months of Nisan/Tishri, both occur at or very near 100% full. This science and analogy of the half-string pitch works for both music and time keeping.

 

These are two entirely different sciences in one respect, yet they have identical parallels. Therefore, the calibration proof and standard of the declaration of the seventh G note month, Tishri, can be verified against its sub-harmonic, Nisan. The new and full moons of both months should perfectly overlay with the fretted dates, or else somebody made a mistake in the calculation. It is just that simple - a principle often demonstrated by the eclipse cycle harmonics, where you have solar/lunar eclipses occurring in the spring, then a duplication of the same in the fall, a half year later.

 

Therefore, postponements, by the notes of the week, extend this string length of Tishri to Tishri, civil year to civil year, so that when the 15th note, full moon open string of Tishri is plucked, its half-point sub-harmonic will be found to occur and overlay the 15th moon of Nisan. It would be the same for the comparison of Nisan 1 with Tishri 1.

 

At times no string length adjustment is required, since 39% of the time the pitch is spot on, but 61% of the time the vibrating length must be extended by one to two increments (days). Nisan, then, becomes the half-pitch check of calibration of the declaration of the seventh month, Tishri. The lunar phases of both months must agree, showing that the mid-point length of the civil year declared at Tishri 1 occurs in phase with the half-point, half-octave moons of Nisan.

 

These extensions, or postponements, resolve to pitch the new and full moon music of Tishri and Nisan, so that songs are raised, the tumbrel struck, with the pleasant harp and lute - at the new moon, at the full moon, on our solemn feast day. (Ps. 81).

 

A string length for Tishri 1, if set to end at the weekdays of A, D or F (Sun.-Wed.-Fri.), will always alter the octave moon note/pitch accuracy of the lunar dates of Nisan. Therefore, the year string length at Tishri 1 must always be clipped at the CEGB day/notes of the week, otherwise the frets are misplaced and the music is very sour. By this analogy, Nisan is the division of the lunar civil year string and it must be on pitch with the moon’s phase.

 

In summary of this section, the main point is that calculation rules are aimed at finding not only the bookends of Tishri to Tishri, but also the annual mid-point moon phases of Nisan. Once accomplished, both the moons of Tishri and Nisan are in resonance, Nisan being the test of verification that Trumpets is on target with the lunar phase, which then reflects back and/or forward to Nisan. 

 

In concert with the four quarters of the moon, the Hebrew calendar employs, by days of the week, a four-point quadratic of the seven- day cycle, which, when necessary, activates to adjust the length of the lunar year.

 

Now, we must count by whole days. Thus, the average molad length, which then progresses by months of 29 and 30 days, automatically creates an insufficiency of time, seeing that the 29/30- day month alternations produce an average of 29.50 days. But, since the lunar cycle is actually an average of 29.5305941, there is an ongoing built in deficiency, which must occasionally be adjusted to catch up. This catch up adjustment occurs 61% of the time for lunar years.

 

In the progression of the lunar civil year, from the seventh month of the sacred calendar, Tishri, to the seventh month of the civil year, Nisan, there is a familiar number of deficiency that we have seen before. It happens in this way:

 

The half-cycle average of the lunar year is 12.3684/2 = 6.184 months. This is because common years have 12 months, but leap years are 13 months in length. Now, counting time by alternating months of 29 and 30 days produces an average of 29.5 days, which is a .03-day of shortfall per month. That is, since months are actually about 29.53 days long.

 

Thus, given these methods for time keeping, the civil year span from Tishri to Nisan is deficient by how much time? The number is 4,904 parts, or in whole numbers, 4 9 4 - the Psalm of the riddle (Ps. 49:4).

 

Now, in a 12-month lunar year the average length, by whole number of days, is 354. And, in those years when Passover falls on the weekday of Wednesday, as it did in the 354 day year of Jesus’ crucifixion, 29/30 AD, Pentecost falls on the 244th day of the civil year.

 

Amazingly, this number of 244 days is the fourth multiple of 61 - the very day of the year, Pentecost, 27 AD, when Jesus read in the synagogue of Nazareth, that profound prophecy of Isaiah 61!

 

But there is more to the pattern. In civil year progression, Pentecost is the eighth Appointed Time. It falls, every year, during the approximate days just after the eighth course of Abia, in that same week of the 24 temple courses, 6 BC, when Gabriel appeared to Zacharias, father of John the Baptist, messenger of the Messiah.

 

Not only does this eighth course seem to be associated with the approximate time of the eighth Appointed Time of the civil year, Pentecost, but the day of Pentecost always falls on the first day of the eighth week from the Wave Sheaf, and on the eighth day of the week, Sunday.

 

Moreover, in that pattern of a 354-day prophetic year, when Passover falls on Wednesday, it follows that Pentecost will be counted to and declared on the eighth day of Sivan. In any year when Sivan 8 falls on Pentecost, there yet remains 110 days until Tishri 1, at the beginning of the next civil year. 

 

This 110-day count is the Sunday, A note frequency of the musical octave (110 hertz), and a combination of 61 + 49 = 110. Now, in one sense, Isaiah 61 becomes the mid-point of the 49 books of the Bible, since Jesus’ reading of this scripture on the A note, Sunday, in the octave region (the 1 and the 8) of Galilee, sets the half- division tone of the Biblical octave. This is because the gospel account, of which Jesus’ ministry is premiere, occurs at the forth division of the Bible, as recorded in the four gospels of the New Testament. 

 

Now, according the Hebrew calendar construct, the first six days of the week are each numbered, but the Sabbath alone is assigned two numbers of identity. These Sabbath numbers are 0 and 7. Therefore, the pattern outline of the week becomes, 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7.

 

In that sense all multiples of the Sabbath are equated to this 0/7 time mark, since these are merely repeating cycles of the same day of the week. Hence, by multiples of the sevens, time has not moved from that weekday of counting. By number, we may multiply the Sabbath day a thousand times, but in the end result, by multiple of the sevens, it will still be Saturday, a 0 mod 7.

 

Therefore, in this vein of thought, since any multiple of the Sabbath number, seven also has a value of 0, then our familiar Psalm reference of riddle, Psalm 49:4, also bears the number 0:4. This is the number of the day-four Wednesday Passover, and reflects to the fact that all 49 books of the Bible are required to explain the prophetic, day four Passover of Jesus Christ. It is from this stem of concept that the story of the 49 books of text, and the fourth day purpose of the Passover, begins to unfold. Thereby, this is a pattern of riddle and mystery, as implied in the words of Psalm 49:4.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From the Flooded Lands

(To the Word of God in English)

 

The founding of the Separatist colony of North America, at the Passover season of 1621 AD, was a direct result of the Treaty of Antwerp, signed during the Passover week of 1609. The treaty was signed at the end of the long Dutch struggle against the Spanish and the Church of Rome, and paved the way for the eventual voyage of the Mayflower to the new world. Yet, few of us in America, if stopped on the street corner, would be able to give a definitive answer, as to this region and place of Flanders on the world's globe. Those of us who remember the name at all probably do so only because of a poem that John McCrae wrote in 1915 - a poem which he was so dissatisfied with that he tossed it away. Fortunately, it was retrieved by a friend who thought more of its value.

 

"In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place; and in the sky

The larks, still bravely singing, fly"

 

The historic significance of Flanders extends back in time well beyond the battles of WWI. Indeed, her past, almost completely unnoticed, connects in a profound way to the most often printed and purchased book on earth, the word of God, the Bible.

 

All of us who own a Bible in English have received a document of which 80 to 90% of the books touched the region, fields and waterways of Flanders. It was here that almost all the words of her translation were stroked by a scribe who came from England, to reside in this historic place. His name was William Tyndale. Centuries before, Tyndale’s ancestors migrated from these very same, flooded lands (Flanders) and the countries of the Benelux, the region to which he returned. It is a story of amazing coincidence.

 

From the pen of John Wycliffe of the 14th century AD, to the last monarch of the Meredith-Tudor lineage, king James of the 1611 KJV Bible, all of the translations, printings and even the early hand written copies of the English Bible were in some way supported and protected by the patronage and legal authority of descendants whose lineage stemmed from Flanders, the place of the flooded lands.

 

From the days of John Wycliffe to the work of William Tyndale, there is no exception to the links and dots of this pathway. Even the renowned scholar of that age, Erasmus of Holland, in 1517, established academic studies for Biblical translations at Leuven University, Flanders, just 43 air miles from Ghent (Gaunt), the ancestral home of the York and Tudor kings.

 

Just a short drive to the north of Leuven lies Antwerp, the place of William Tyndale's intense activities, and between Leuven and Ghent is situated Vilvoorde, the place of his imprisonment and eventual execution.

 

All of this, from an area of Flanders which spanned no more than 40 to 50 miles in breadth - a mere ink mark on the world map. From the Beaufort Castle of Ghent, to Vilvoorde and the execution of Tyndale, on that last day of the Feast of Tabernacles 1536, every tributary of the story of the English Bible flows from and returns to this tiny speck on earth's orb - from the lowlands of Holland and the Belgi (the Celts).

 

As if by a symbolic parallel of flooding waters, it was here in these flooded lands that William Tyndale was executed in the year 1536. Tyndale was burned at the stake in the very same week and season of the year as happened in 29 AD, when Jesus on that great day of the feast, cried out, "If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink - out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” (Jn. 7:37). Within hours, on the very next day of that fall festival, 29 AD, Jesus healed the eyes of a man blind from birth.

 

So it happened that William Tyndale, during the last days of the Feast of Tabernacles, 1536 AD, was brought forth for execution. Amazingly, it is as if Tyndale was aware of the time setting - that his execution was taking place during those very hours of the acts of Jesus in 29 AD, some 1507 years previous to the very time of that same festival observance. In which case Tyndale's last words were symbolic, historic and reflective to that day when Jesus gave sight to a man born blind.

 

For the Pharisees had said to the blind man, "How were your eyes opened?” (Jn. 9:10). Then, William Tyndale, more than 15 centuries later, added to the analogy and question of the Pharisees. For at the point of his execution, understanding who it is that can take away blindness, in his last breath, Tyndale cried, "Lord open the eyes of the king of England!"

 

According to historians, Tyndale was executed on October 6, 1536, which was Tishri 21, the seventh day of the Feast of Tabernacles. It is perhaps a coincidence, but notice the whole numbers of John 9:10, which Jesus spoke on this seventh day of the feast, 29 AD. The numbers are 91, the exact number of the sevens of months in a 19-year time cycle (7 x 13 = 91 months).

 

Scholars, following the trail marks of the lost tribes of Israel, have concluded and dubbed this region of Belgium and Holland, the modern land of Zebulun. How fitting, for it was first from Zebulun that the Word of God, the Light, Jesus Christ, first shined forth from Galilee, where the eyes in the land of darkness first began to see. This, the prophet Isaiah begins to describe, in the same number as that of the sevens of the Metonic cycle months, Isaiah 9:1. 

 

Now, in a burst of historical transition, in that early age of the dawn of the Renaissance, and profoundly linked to Flanders, came the patronage for the words of the first translations of a Bible in English. This was by the pen of John Wycliffe, whose patron was none other than John Gaunt of England, son of Edward III.

 

Gaunt was born at the Beaufort Castle estates, Flanders. His mother, the Queen Consort Philippa, was also of Flemish nobility from Hainault, Flanders. Indeed, for a time, Wycliffe, the Oxford professor, was known as “the king’s man” of the legalities of religious authority. This was very odd, considering Wycliffe was quite out of step with the religious mainstream of his day.

 

John Wycliffe garnered quite a following, but was branded with a Dutch name of heresy, a “Lollard.” But, in that very age, in the parliament of Edward III, King of England, there were Lollard knights in the king’s court!

 

It was from these (low) Netherlands and flooded lands of Europe which came, over the centuries, all the monarchs and nobility, and lastly the scribe, William Tyndale, with his translations and mass printing of a Bible in English.

 

And, nearly two centuries after the time of Wycliffe, during the last years of William Tyndale's life in the 1500s AD, his Bible and other printed books and manuscripts flowed from and were smuggled up the waterways of the river Scheldt, out of Antwerp, Flanders.

 

God’s word, translated into English, streamed from those lowlands of grain and wool production, amidst the academia and technology of that day.

 

There, to a great degree, in the age of Renaissance, it all began, and it was there in Flanders where it also ended for William Tyndale. But his work lives on. This light and word of God out of Zebulun, in English, has flowed forth through the rivers and oceans of earth to our present day.

 

Now, her pages literally fill the earth, both in print (hard copy), and also in the vast expanse of the ever-growing cyber pathways of the electronic age. But to us who still live, and to those who follow, the challenge remains.

 

"The torch; be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die,

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields."

 

We have nothing that we did not receive (I Cor. 4:7). But, like the poem of John McCrae, the knowledge and history of the word of God can be all too easily diminished, and all so easily tossed aside.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 9

 

TONES OF THE MUSICAL SCALE

And the Patterns of Prophecy

 

While the numbers of the lunar cycles, the 247-year spans of the 19- year Metonic, the calculations of the Hebrew calendar, and the patterns of the Bible appear to have always been the same, a side note of some interest is this:  the numbers of our musical scale have not always been set precisely as we know them today.

 

The 247-hertz, fourth octave B was once a bit lower, but, like water seeking its own level, it seems to have progressed to where the scale has now settled. It is a known fact of history that in the days of Stradivarius, when he made his violins, world standard for concert A was 432 hertz. However, according to some sources, for some odd reason, middle C at that time was 264 hertz and has not been changed to this day.

 

So, when did the present musical mathematics actually become the scale that is known to our modern age? Surprisingly, the tonal frequencies of this scale began to come into being coincident with the age of the coming of the English Bible. Nobody knows the exact person and date for which the pitch of the scale notes was concluded, but one major mover and shaker of this science was none other than the Gaelic, Galilean, and Galactic swirl-like family name of Vincenzo Galilei.

 

Now, we’re obviously making implications of metaphor, by the name, but this Italian man, a music theorist and famed lute player, born in the year 1520 AD, was, in his youth, a contemporary with the age of scholars like Erasmus and William Tyndale.  Vincenzo Galilei was the father of the renowned astronomer, Galileo - the man kept under house arrest by the Church of Rome for his theory that the earth was round.

 

How odd that this family name of Galilei/Galileo, which means to complete the octave or circle, bears a striking resemblance to the place name of Jesus’ residence and ministry, Galilee, and that the work of this family opened a door of understanding to the symmetry of music and the form and principles of astronomy. All this began to take place in the age of scholarship, when William Tyndale, in his poetic style, translated the word of God into English. 

 

But, it was at that very juncture of history, when the birthright to Ephraim and Manasseh began to bloom and flourish in the 16th century - at the very age of the Reformation and the coming of a Bible in English, that the mathematics of our current scale of music began to develop, eventually becoming fully standardized by the late 19th or early 20th century AD.

 

This symmetrical balance of form overlays the 6/1 pattern of the musical note frequencies, 44 and 440 hertz (F = 6, A = 1), upon the mathematics of the 44 fractional minutes of the lunar month and the 44 month and four day ministry of Jesus Christ. That is, from the fall of 26 AD to the Passover of 30 AD was 44 months, leading up to the finale and event of the 14th Passover, by which, on the fourth day of week, began the four days of His crucifixion, death and resurrection, followed by 40 days of additional ministry, ending on the 27th day of the month, Iyar. So, His ministry was 44 months, plus four days, then 40 more days as a Spirit Being, following His resurrection.

 

Now, the product of the Old and New Testament books is 22 x 27 = 594, the octave double of 297 hertz, the frequency of the note D, mid-scale and mid-week prophetic Passover day of 30 AD, which fourth day and half week event brought in the finale of Jesus’ 44 months and four days of physical ministry. This was an Appointed Time, derived from the Hebrew calendar calculations.  

 

The 247-year cycles of the Hebrew calendar became the note B of the fourth octave (247 hertz), and the fourth octave, middle C transition is formed of the sequence 27/17, the 11th multiple of 247 years. These are the astronomical numbers of the long term lunar eclipse cycles, which knowledge stems from the scientific research of men like Galileo. Thus, 247 x 11 = 2717 years - the merging of the natural C, middle C transition of the musical scale, by the number of the New Testament book Revelation (27) and the end of the day resurrection of Jesus Christ, Sabbath, Nisan 17, 30 AD (see graph below).

 

 

The seventh note of the scale (G), at 396 hertz, is the sub-octave of 792, which overlays to 99.9% of the value of 793, the fractional parts of the Hebrew calendar month, which number (793) represents approximately 44 minutes of the 60-minute, one hour clock. So, the nearest whole to the last hour of each lunar month and the seventh note of the musical scale is within 3.33 seconds of 44 minutes, or 792/93 hertz of the audible tones of music.

 

 

 

The frequency of the prophetic Passover day, Wednesday, is the fourth note of the fourth octave scale (297 hertz), and the fourth multiple of that Wednesday note is 1188, a product of 27 x 44. The numbers of 1188 sum to 1 + 1 + 8 + 8 = 18, the bedrock number of the parts per minute of the Hebrew calendar lunar calculations (18 x 3.33 secs. = one minute).

 

The definition of symmetry is the beauty attained by the balance of form. We could go on with these comparisons, but it is more than evident that prophecy, musical law and the calculations of the lunar calendar all stem from the same creative mind and source - all pointing to one statement, “In the beginning God!”

 

We have documented and demonstrated how these tones of music and the strings of the harp so precisely overlay and merge with the patterns of the calculated Hebrew calendar and the Appointed Times of God. And, with the coming of these number patterns of music and time, it is also equally astounding that at that very period of the first mass publications of the English Bible of the 16th century AD, came also the first ever printing of a complete Bible of any translation, which included the numbering of both chapter and verse. Some earlier attempts had been made to number chapters and verses, but it was the Geneva Bible of 1560 which numbered every chapter and verse for both the Old and New Testaments.

 

With the culmination of many events, beginning with the scholarship of men like Erasmus and Tyndale, in the earlier decades of the 16th century, and the subsequent publication of the 1560 Geneva Bible, the conquest and grip of the coup of Constantine, dating from the Council of Nicea, 325 AD, was beginning to crumble. The year 1560 was not only an exact multiple of 247-year periods, dating from 325 AD, but that year, as occurred at the time of the Council of Nicea in 325, was also the very first year of the 19-year Metonic cycle.

 

Therefore, beginning about the 16th century and forward, in the age of Renaissance, was merged the parts and pieces of scholarship and science, so that man now possesses the tools of translation, cataloging, publication and understanding of the word of God, in ways which were simply not possible before modern times. Truly, we have the fulfillment of the words of the prophet, Daniel, “many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” (Dan. 12:4). 

 

As we have written, some pretty amazing things, aligned with the dates of lunar calculations, have happened in world, with respect to events of the Bible. This profoundly includes church history, with regard to lunar dates and the 247-year cycles, which are 13 multiples of the 19-year Metonic.

 

By solar reckoning of the Gregorian calendar, years 2015/16 AD are the transition years of the 19-year time cycle. By the multiples of the seven patterns, the fall of 2015 began the seventh leap year of this cycle, and the spring of that same year was one of those years in which Nisan 1 was closely aligned with the vernal equinox. Subsequently, there were lunar/solar eclipses for the spring and fall Appointed Times of the first and seventh lunar months of that year. This was the topic of the many articles and books that have been written on the “four blood moons” of that period.

 

We mentioned before that this approximate convergence of Nisan 1 and the equinox first began to occur with the coming of the Greek scholarship to the west, the first mass publication of the English Bible, and the flowering of the western civilizations of modern Israel. While these patterns, over the centuries, have occurred before for other years of the 19-year Metonic cycle, this alignment with the seventh leap year had never occurred until the late 16th and early 17th centuries AD. In time, this pattern will drift forward from year 19 to year 1 of the cycle.

 

But within this pattern, as of this writing, late in the year 2015 AD, an important and little noticed historical event took place. It was exactly 494 years previous to 2015 AD, a double span of the 247-year periods, when the man who gave the western world its first mass publication of a Bible in English, William Tyndale, left Cambridge and took up residence at Little Sodbury, Gloucestershire, on the border of Wales. In that lunar civil year of 1521/22, Tyndale began more publicly to verbalize his critique of the Roman Vulgate and the traditions of the Catholic Church, and also vocalized his call for an English translation of the Scriptures. And, as in the year 2015, the year 1521, was also a year of lunar/solar eclipse cycles, during the full moon festivals of Nisan and Tishri.

 

But now, in our age of increased knowledge, as if in fulfillment of Jesus’ words in Luke 24:44, saying, “all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms (i.e. Music)” - now, in the end of the age, with the arrival of mass printing and communication, even the rudiments of music duplicates the Law and Prophets. That is, in order to cover every aspect of time and the word of God, even the music of the Psalms has settled into numeric patterns that overlay and duplicate prophecy and the calculated Hebrew calendar. This is an age when Matthew 24:14 is coming to pass in a profound climax of fulfillment.

 

Therefore, in the ongoing age of Renaissance, when knowledge continues to increase, we may incline our ear to a proverb, and mysteries are opened and understood by the seven-note pattern symmetry of harp and lyre (Ps. 49:4).

 

Some 2,000 years after the fact of writing, the understanding of the 27th book of the Bible continues to be unsealed. And, to the degree that Revelation reflects the whole, so it is that knowledge and understanding of all 49 books of Scripture continue to increase. Thus is fulfilled the saying, “to whom much is given, much is required.”

 

Jesus Christ is the Word of God. His ministry was penned and canonized in the 24 letters of the Greek alphabet of the New Testament. He was crucified on the fourth-day Wednesday Passover of 30 AD, and then was resurrected near the end of the seventh-day Sabbath, at the close of the week.

 

 

 

He is the Lamb of God, slain from the foundation of the world. He is the TWO (2nd Adam, man of spirit), and He is the four (Passover), and He is the seven (the Sabbaths of the Appointed Times). So, the Creator of time and the universe embedded Himself, even in the calculations of the lunar cycles. He is the 247 and the 494 of the Appointed Times. He is the Word of God, Jesus Christ, who was born of the flesh in the seventh lunar month, in the fall of 5 BC.

 

“I come to do your will, O God,” Jesus described His purpose. In the volume of the book it is written of Me.” And, what a Book it is!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 10

 

 

FROM THE 14TH PASSOVER OF DANIEL 9

TO THE MIDDLE WALL OF EPHESIANS 2:14

 

Just about every student of the Bible has heard of the 70 weeks prophecy of Daniel, chapter 9. This prophecy was given to Daniel just after the fall of Babylon, 539 BC, which occurred in the seventh lunar month of that year. At that time, the command to rebuild and restore Jerusalem was issued, and the first seven weeks (49 years) of Daniel’s 70 week prophecy began to be fulfilled.

 

This first prophetic segment of the 70 weeks is, of course, a multiple of seven (weeks), a number pattern which the Scriptures repeatedly use for the Appointed Times and prophetic events. The entire span of the 70 weeks is taken to be 7 x 70 = 490 years.

 

Gabriel, the angelic man, in bringing the 70 weeks prophecy to Daniel, introduces a pattern and thread that will continue for thousands of years, all the way to the end time events of the book of Revelation. This pattern is the mid-week division of seven, which is particularly connected to those prophecies having to do with the subject of the temple. Remember, Jesus Christ referred to Himself as the Temple, and He was crucified on Wednesday, the mid-division of the week.

 

In the month of October in 539 BC, we get the first glimpse of this principle of “divisions” in the incident when the mysterious hand wrote on the wall at the feast of King Belshazzar. This occurred during the boast of the king and his lords, when they drank wine from vessels of gold, taken from the temple at Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar, more than 40 years previous. In that night of the great feast, the form of a man’s hand wrote on the wall, “you are divided.” Thus was implied, by the words written, the half or division of 2,520, which is 1,260.

 

From that time, throughout the entire span of history of the 70-weeks prophecy of Daniel 9, is continued the principle of dividing the week (the sevens), with respect to important prophetic events. According to many historians, Babylon fell on the second night of the full moon, during the Feast of Tabernacles, in the month, Tishri, 539 BC. So, looking at the full spectrum of the 70 weeks, the first year began with the phrase, “you are divided,” then the other bookend at the end of the age is a division of seven years (i.e. 3.5 years).

 

Then, about a quarter of a century after 539 BC, it happened that at the mid-week half of the first seven weeks of the 70-weeks prophecy, a dramatic event took place. It was the dedication and first year of the second temple. The year was 515/14 BC, the approximate half or mid-week time mark between 539 and 490 BC.

 

This timeline and mid-week pattern of division then continues through the centuries of history - to the coming of the Messiah in the fall of 26 AD and His subsequent crucifixion at the mid-week Passover of 30 AD. Then the thread of subject progresses to the divided (middle) wall of Paul’s epistle to the church at Ephesus, the 17th book of the New Testament. Here, Paul explains the mystery of the middle wall, with respect to the calling of the gentiles. The road of the circle of the seven churches comes out of Ephesus and continues through the centuries of time to the last and seventh church, Laodicea of the Pontus (i.e. road).

 

 Finally, then, at the end of the age, in the days of Laodicea, John is shown the vision of the temple and the middle wall, mid-division of the temple court of the gentiles, in which the outer perimeter is trampled underfoot for the seven-year division of 1,260 days (3.5 years). These revelations to John, regarding the temple and the 1260 days, are written at the mid-division of the 22-chapter book of Revelation, chapter 11. Afterwards, in Revelation 12, appears the dragon with seven heads and ten horns (= 17), from which the church is given flight and protected for the division of a week of years, or 1,260 days.

 
Most all scholars agree that the count of the entire span of the 70 weeks is 490 years, and that the weeks are divided into three segments of 49 + 434 + 7 = 490 years. Messiah was to be “cut off” (the Lamb sacrificed) after 60 and two weeks (Dan. 9:26). So, added to the first seven weeks of the first segment, Messiah (Jesus Christ) would be crucified after 7 + 62 = week 69. This is the 14th Passover day of Wednesday, Nisan 14, 30 AD, with Jesus representing the middle wall division spoken of in Paul’s epistle to Ephesus - Ephesians 2:14.

 

But in the ninth chapter of Daniel, Gabriel finishes this segment of prophecies, closing the account of the 70 weeks at Daniel 9:27. From this point in time (539 BC) begins and runs a thread that continues to the end of the New Testament, a profound transition of understanding given to Daniel, never before disclosed until that time.

 

So, there is a connection from Daniel 9 to Malachi 3, moving forward to the appearance of Messiah, 26 AD, to Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21, I & II Thessalonians, then extending to the connecting dots of Revelation, chapters 11, 12, 13 and 17, and continuing to the end of the 27th book.

 

But let’s analyze particularly the construct of Dan. 9:24-27. Notice the familiar number patterns throughout, pertaining to the fact that within the calendar scale of the music-like flow of the sevens.  Here everything is built upon the mathematical foundation of nine and seven, including also the 14th Passover, a product of 2-7 (2 x 7 = 14).

 

This outline of pattern form actually goes all the way back to the Genesis week of the creation account, reflected from the shadow outline of the nine Appointed Times, which includes the seventh day Sabbath. These number patterns are all part of the inference of Genesis 1:14, which refers to seasons (i.e. Appointed Times).

 

All of these time elements are touched upon in Daniel 9. Now, there are seven annual Sabbaths, but nine different types of the Appointed Times, including the weekly Sabbath day. And 9 x 7 = 63. This number, 63 is the very next week after Daniel’s second time segment of 62 weeks, which completion of prophecy we are now awaiting. By the end of week 62 a total of 7 + 62 = 69 weeks were completed. Therefore, week 63 following week 62 is synonymous with week 70 of the whole.

 

Though the chapter and verse numbers were all assigned by men, it is amazing that Dan. 9:27 contains these basic number patterns and that 27 - 9 = 18 = the parts per minute for the calculations of the Hebrew calendar. But, 9 + 27 = 36 - a completed circle of events, described by the place name of Jesus’ ministry, Galilee.

 

But on a musical note, we have this:  the interval or pause after completion of the first seven weeks of Daniel’s prophecy is the beginning of the eighth or octave week, which is the first week of the second set of 62.

 

We are now in an interlude, somewhere beyond the end of the 7 + 62 weeks, which came to an end in the fall of 26 AD. Either the timeline stopped at the end of 69 weeks (7 + 62), or the ministry of Christ began and fulfilled the first half division of week 70, in which case the prophetic count is on pause at 69.5 weeks and holding.

 

Based on the divided purposes of Isaiah 61:2, and other patterns of division, it seems more likely that prophetic time is on hold at 69.5 weeks. We know that the half-week division and Abomination of Desolation is the next benchmark to watch for (Mt. 24:15), but any conclusion of just where we are with respect to an exact point of timeline (69 or 69.5 weeks) is mere speculation. Some believe that Daniel 9:27 and the seven-year covenant of a world prince implies that we are paused at a point of 69 weeks, with one full week (7 years) to go. But that conclusion has no absolute foundation of certainty. The beginning of the seven-year covenant of the world prince may or may not begin the last week of the prophecy. One thing is certain, however. There is a marked period of a week of a seven-year covenant at the end, of which at least the half or mid-point of that time is the last 3.5 years of the 70 weeks.

 

If Daniel 9:24 is an emphatic statement that “to make reconciliation for sin” falls within the context of the 490 years, then the mid-week crucifixion of Jesus Christ fulfilled that requirement, and the timeline of the 70 weeks progressed to and remains on hold at the point of 69.5 weeks. God has not revealed the full mystery of this question and human opinion has limitations. In any case, as of 2015, we yet await the remainder and completion of the 70 weeks of Daniel’s prophecy. When the timeline again becomes active, whether it will be a full week or the final division thereof, is at this point, unknown. Both scenarios have points of merit, but any conclusion remains in the realm of opinion and speculation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 11

 

 

THE 8TH ANGEL OF DANIEL AND REVELATION

 

An angelic messenger from God appeared to the prophet Daniel in the third year of Cyrus, King of Persia, 536 BC. So awesome was his presence that even though he was not visible to Daniel’s two friends, a great terror fell upon them, so that they fled to hide themselves (Dan. 10:7).

 

This angel brought a message of prophetic times and the events which surround them. We have discussed at length how the patterns of these prophetic and Appointed Times are virtually always formed with reference to the number seven. This messenger is a companion of the angel Michael, and they work and travel together in a concert of purpose (Dan. 10:21). According to the story flow of Daniel and Revelation, this particular angel, along with Michael, was engaged in a conflict which foreshadows the latter days - days which the Scriptures call, the Great Tribulation.

 

The Appointed Time of the angel’s message has been long, unfolding over thousands of years, yet it will finally come to fulfillment as proclaimed in the visions to the apostle John, in the book of Revelation, chapter 10. In the prophecies of both Daniel and Revelation, we find the message coming to conclusion in the time setting of the seven angels of the seventh seal.

 

In Daniel the 12th chapter, this man (angel), clothed in linen, who hovers above the waters, speaks of “times.” “At that time,” he said, “Michael shall stand up…..and, there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation.”

 

Then, in Daniel 12:2, he speaks of two distinct divisions of time - the 6,000- and 100-year periods of the first and second resurrections, respectively. “And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, following the 6,000 years of mankind, but then comes the 100 years of the white throne judgment, when some (not all) awake to shame and everlasting contempt.” So, here are described the two divisions of the times of the 6 and 1 - the 6,100-year span of the two resurrections. And, here, in this 6-1 imagery, is a pattern of the calculated Hebrew calendar - the calendar which declares the Appointed Times of God, as proclaimed by the 44 verses of Leviticus, chapter 23.

 

These timelines of Daniel and Revelation are parallel, and the sevens of these parallels have one who has the oversight. He has authority over the prophetic sevens of the land and he has authority over the sevens of the sea. He appears to be the arc elder of the mysteries of God.

 

No other angelic servant of God has been so charged with this specific authority. He lifts his hand toward heaven, where dwells God Himself. In the power of his office he invokes and swears by Him who lives forever. This he does when explicit and prophetic times of God are to be marked, and he comes with the sevens of prophecy. For the purpose of this writing, we will call him, THE EIGHTH ANGEL!

 

Daniel and Revelation form a lock-key set. They are the 20th book of the Old Testament and the 27th book of the New, respectively. And just as there are 47 books of the Bible, apart from Daniel and Revelation, so here the number sum of Daniel and Revelation is 20 + 27 = 47.

 

These are two major books of prophecy that are uniquely connected. They are mysteries of prophetic imagery, and they are a double set of 20 + 27 = 47, or 2 47. Just as the 247-year time spans are locked to the seven-day week, so these two books have prophetic messages that have to do with the sevens of the Hebrew calendar calculations. Indeed, the opening verse describing the sevens of the 70 weeks is: “24 sevens are determined.” (Dan. 9:24)

 

In the locked and sealed book of Daniel, the eighth angel comes to explain the histories of the four world kingdoms of the gentiles, and in particular, the seven stages of the fourth kingdom of iron (Dan. 2:40). In the eighth chapter of Revelation come the seven angels with the seven trumpets. And, with them, at the very pivot and finale of their task, appears an eighth angel, who seems to be the same angel who gave revelations to Daniel. He is called a mighty angel, clothed with a cloud, and in his hand is a scroll - a scroll which may well represent that which was originally sealed. That is, the mysteries of the book (scroll) of Daniel, and he is prepared to reveal its contents in the 27th book, Revelation. 

 

But in verse one of this eighth chapter of Revelation comes the entrance of the seven angels. Then there is intermission for the space of 540 parts of the Hebrew calendar. That is for the space of about one half-hour of time. And, in an amazing way, the elements which form the product of this 540-part span of time are the book of Daniel and the Book of Revelation.

 

So, the parts are book 20 and book 27, and the product of their parts is 20 x 27 = 540. Then, at Revelation 8:1, in the days of the seven trumpets and the eighth angel, when the seventh seal is opened, there is a profound pause, as if a world event of great magnitude is about to occur.

 

Thus, at the point of this awesome transition of prophecy, “there will be silence in heaven for about half an hour (1,080/2 = 540 parts = 30 minutes).”

 

This is the half-circle of the hour (540 parts), which overlays the pattern that one-half of the book of Revelation is contained within the first eleven chapters - a chapter divided by the blast of the seventh trumpet, the two witnesses and the first resurrection of Pentecost, the 8th and 50th days.

 

But first there is an interlude. The eighth angel, who comes with the seven thunders, steps in. “And the angel whom I (John) saw standing on the sea and on the land lifted up his hand to heaven and swore by Him who lives forever and ever….that there should be delay no longer, but in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets,” (Rev. 10:5-7).

 

Here, this angel of times comes, at the 6 + 1 interval of the seven trumpets. There is a brief inset between the sixth and seventh trumpet, in which the eighth angel appears. It is time, he announces, that the mystery of God is no longer postponed, but is now to be revealed - here at the 6/1 transition of the seven angels with the seven trumpets.

 

These are patterns of God’s Appointed Times. They parallel the six types of lunar years, by length of days, and they parallel the 61 different patterns of the 19-year Metonic cycle, and they parallel the 61% of years that time is delayed (postponed) by one or two days, at the day of Trumpets of the seventh month, Tishri.

 

These patterns parallel the very ministry of Jesus Christ, when in the sixth year of that Metonic, 26/27 AD,  in the first year of the seven-year land Sabbath cycles, Jesus came to His hometown of Nazareth and read from Isaiah 61. Thus, at the Appointed Time, He fulfilled Isaiah’s prophecy, and this fulfillment came at the parallel and overlay of the 6/1 convergence of time.

 

Therefore, according to Revelation 10:7, the mystery, locked and sealed in the 20th book of the Old Testament, the book of Daniel, chapter 12:4, is no longer delayed. For, in Daniel’s day, the eighth angel, clothed in linen, who was above the waters, was asked, “How long shall the fulfillment of these wonders be (Dan. 12:6)?”

 

Then, more than 2500 hundred years after the fact, the answer is delivered.  In the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the eighth angel, speaking with the words of a sworn oath from the eternal God of the universe, lifts his hand again to the heavens, and states of the mystery of God, “there shall be delay no longer.” (Rev 10:6-7)

 

The prophecy of time, in the days of Daniel, came with an oath, and now, in the visions of Revelation to the apostle John, the same messenger with the same oath declares that which had been sealed, from the verses of Daniel 12, shall now be opened and come to fulfillment.

 

At this point, in the days of the sounding of the seventh trumpet, all events, from the Lamb of God of the day-four Wednesday Passover, slain from the foundation of the world, to the finale and the sounding of the seventh angel of the last trump, are finally linked. Daniel and Revelation are added together. Therein is contained the sum and coupling of these prophetic books, which is the fourth-day sacrifice of Jesus Christ and the seventh trumpet of the first resurrection. 

 

 

Thus four, the half-circle of the seven-day week, Wednesday, combines with the angel’s sworn oath of the sevens, and the number is 47. And, the lock and key of Daniel and Revelation are joined, and the number of is 20 + 27 = 47.

 

“Behold, I tell you a mystery,” Paul wrote (I Cor. 15:51). The understanding of Daniel’s prophecies was locked, but the strong angel, the man clothed in linen, has announced their day of opening, when that mystery of all mysteries is at long last revealed. This will occur when the Sea of Glass circles the earth, at the first resurrection and the second coming of Jesus Christ.

 

“How long shall the fulfillment of these wonders be?” the question was posed. “Then I (Daniel) heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that is shall be for a time, times, and half a time.” (Dan. 12:6-7).

 

The whole of God’s creation groans with anticipation. But in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of God will be finished, and there will be delay no longer. 

   

                        

On the Concept of Hebrew and Greek Gematria

 

Anciently, many languages used the number for letters concept. That is, each letter of a given alphabet had a number value. This is the science of gematria, and was much used in the Hebrew and Greek languages. In all probability, this science is both visual and dimensional, implying more than just numbers on a flat plane.

 

In that vein of thought we are told that the Greek name, Jesus, has a numeric value of 888. The Greeks, as much as that of the Hebrew culture, were quite involved in this art form.

 

The book of Revelation is a stellar example of the gematric language and pattern. This 27th book of the New Testament exhibits very dense strata of the gematric imagery. Apart from knowledge of a spherical, geometric form, we tend to view things in a superficial, flat plane concept, which is only a small depth or outer layer of the message and understanding.

 

So while it is one thing to say, “count the number of the beast,” which is 666, this is only a number of two dimension, which may substantially miss the depth and geometry of the intended form and riddle. Men have puzzled this mysterious number for thousands of years and perhaps, because we do not fully grasp the geometric view, we cannot fully understand what lies inside the orb form, the real meat of the visual. It is beyond our point of view.

 

 

Likewise, it is one thing to know that the gematria of light is 27 (or 207), but another to understand that 207 was used in the order of chronology of the 27th book (Revelation). Moreover, 207 is merely a number, but it is much more profound when we understand that all Appointed Times are contained within the seven months or 207 days of the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ. That is, the plan of salvation, unfolding every year in the 207 days of Nisan 1 to Tishri 30.

 

Jesus, in the Greek gematria, may well be indicated by the numeric of 888, but there is also a connection to the octave concept of the number equivalent, which is 22. That is, 8 8 8 is merely three stand-alone octave cycles bumped together, which can also be stated as 7 + 7 + 7 + 1 = 22 = 3 octaves = 8 8 8.

 

In a more pictorial sketch, we have:

 

1 2 3 4 5 6 7

    (seals)    1 2 3 4 5 6 7

                   (trumpets) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

___________________(vials)___ 1, 2, etc.___

                   8                8                8

 

It is one thing to know that Revelation is a construct of 22 chapters, a book of light (revealing) built upon the framework of a three-octave (888) thread of a seven-note diameter, but yet another to understand the visual of the octave (8th) Offspring of Jesse. He is the prophetic David, Jesus Christ, who confronts the 8th or 7 + 1 son of destruction in this capstone book of all prophecy - a text of revealing (Revelation).

 

And, it is yet another strata of understanding to read Isaiah 22:22, which in a greater depth of pattern can be stated as Isaiah 888:888 -a Scripture which depicts One who opens and shuts things in a tonal orb of circles, rolled up in a scroll of sevens, upon which a Light (27) must be shined if we are to see and understand. Jesus Christ is that Light, and in the 27th book, He opens the seven sealed scroll.

 

The harper David assigned 24 courses to the priesthood of the temple service and the story of Jesus Christ in the New Testament begins with the appearance of the angel to Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist. This occurred in the course of Abia, the 8th course of the 24. By percentage of the whole, the 8th course is 8/24 = 0.333, the numbers of the halek of calendar calculations (1 halek or part = 3.33 seconds).

 

Here is another piece of the multi-layered imagery of the patterns of God in the story-flow of the Bible. According to some sources, the count of eight, as used in the course of Abia, is not just a number of ordinal placement. The Hebrew word used here bears an inference to the musical octave, the harp, and especially the low tones of the male voice (see heading of Psalm 6 & 12).

 

But the irony used in the account of Gabriel’s appearance to Zacharias during the eighth course, regarding the birth of John the Baptist, is quite striking (see Luke 1). When Zacharias did not believe Gabriel’s report, what was the penalty for his disbelief?

Zacharias lost his voice for nine months!

 

Now, the time placement of the course Abia is quite unique, for it was just after this eighth course had ended in 66 AD, when the Cloud of Presence left the temple. And, every year, leading up to the days just before Pentecost, the course of Abia served in the temple. 

 

Typically, the service of Abia always hovers around the time of Iyar 27, the day Noah walked on dry ground following the deluge and the day that Jesus ascended into the heavens. Jesus, by returning to the heavens about this time of year, officially took over duties as High Priest during the service of the eighth course. 

 

By sequence of the sacred and civil years of the lunar cycle, John, the son of Zacharias, was conceived in the third month of the sacred year, which was the ninth month of the civil calendar. Jesus, being six months younger than John, was conceived in the third month (Kislev) of the civil year, which was the ninth month of the sacred year. The sum of all is then, 3 + 9 + 3 + 9 = 24, the courses of David, while the product of the third and ninth months becomes 3 x 9 = 27 = Revelation. John would have been born in the 12th month of the sacred year and Jesus in the seventh month, the sum being 12 + 7 = 19 = the Metonic cycle of 12 common and seven leap years. 

 

Quite striking is the imagery of 888 to the Appointed Times. That is, God proclaimed that in three seasons of every year, all the males were to appear before Him. The three festivals of pilgrimage are the Passover and days of Unleavened Bread (8 days), the feast of Pentecost (day 8) and the Feast of Tabernacles (8 days).

 

Thus, we have the number visual of the three festival periods,

8 8 8, which Appointed Times frame the plan of God to salvation - agreeing with the statement of Paul to the Colossians that such observances are an outline, a  shadow and a pattern of things to come (Col. 2:17), but the body or reality of substance from which the pattern is cast, is Jesus Christ.

 

Now, in 6 BC, the year of the angel’s appearance to Zacharias, the eighth course would have begun serving on the 27th day of Iyar, the number of the 27th book, Revelation. This was in the days which began the age of the appearance of the Light (207), Jesus Christ.

 

It was only about six months later when the angel appeared to Mary, announcing the coming of the Messiah. John, the son of Elizabeth and Zacharias, was the messenger, sent to prepare the way for the appearance of his cousin, Jesus Christ. Since Gabriel appeared to Zacharias in the service of the eighth course, and since the courses served twice annually in the sequence of the 24-course rotation, then it seems likely that Gabriel also appeared to Mary about the time of the second service of the eighth course, Abia. This was in the month Kislev, which was declared around the month of November, 6 BC.

Decades later, when Jesus had finished the course of His earthly ministry, He ascended back into the heavens from the Mount of Olives on the 27th of Iyar, 30 AD, just as the week of the seventh course was ending, and the eighth course of Abia was soon to begin. And, since there are 24 courses, but three times annually when all courses serve, in that sense there are 24 + 3 = 27 distinct orders of service.

 

Counting the eight annual Appointed Times of each civil year, beginning at the day of Trumpets (Tishri 1), then the eighth Appointed Time of Pentecost falls just on the heels of the eighth course of Abia, approximately during the end of Iyar and the beginning of Sivan. This would occur in every civil year of the lunar calendar, and agrees with the fact that the finale of Pentecost falls on the 50th day of the seventh octave, which is always the eighth day. In concert, as if by a hand-to-glove fit, the day of Pentecost, falling at the point of the completion of the seventh octave, is also the seventh annual Sabbath. 

 

Please observe that in Revelation 4 and 5, on the sea of glass, it seems that all 24 courses are servings, each under the oversight and supervision of the 24 elders, one for each of David’s courses. Such things are symbolic, but even in symbol, all threads are woven to complete the fabric of the whole, with things of the spiritual realm replicated in the form of the physical.

 

But yet, at some future time, when the eighth course of Abia has finished its service, at the time of the seventh trumpet, all courses will be convened on the sea of glass, and the acceptable year finally attained on the day of Pentecost, the first resurrection.

 

Then, in the presence of the 24 elders of the 24 courses, the seven vials of vengeance begin to be poured upon the desolate. At that juncture of prophetic history, Isaiah 61:1-2 and Daniel 9:27 shall have been accomplished.

 

From the rolling of Gilgal to circle of Galilee; from Israel of the flesh to Israel of the spirit, and from the octave (8th) of Abia to the sea of glass - there, on the day of inheritance, the acceptable year shall be complete. This, when the Lamb of God rolls up the scroll, gives it back to the attendant and takes His place at the right hand of God. This is the vision the apostle John was privileged to see; recorded, written down and preserved for all to read, in the 27th New Testament book, called, the Revelation of Jesus Christ.

 

These numbers and symbols of geometric form, from the creative mind and realm of God, are part of the Hebrew and Greek concepts from which the science of modern physics has been derived. Of course, that should be no great surprise, since everything flows back to the fact of creation itself. That is, “in the beginning God”.

 

Maxwell, Marconi, Tesla and other physicists obviously understood some of these basic laws of God, concerning the science and construct principles of symmetrical patterns, though it is not likely that they fully perceived or coupled such formulae directly to the Scriptural evidence.

 

 

In any case, what is behind the meaning of 666, which is 333 less than the mirror inversion of 999 (= 27)? And, what lies hidden behind 888 - 666 = 222, which is one third of 666? We don't know, because we do not fully understand the art and science of these realms. These same patterns we also find in the circles of time, being ordered by the 2/3 transitions, as demonstrated by the rhythm of the seven leap years, stated as 3323332 of the Hebrew calendar. These are numbers having to do with the key of the David, musical muse configuration of the seven leap year notes of the Metonic cycle, and this rhythm form is also embedded in the patterns of the Bible.

 

The seven tones of the C major scale, which in shadow moves through the seven leap year music of the 19 year Metonic, completes the octave or eighth leap year note at year 22. This is year three of the next successive Metonic (19 + 3 = 22). So, as previously described, 22 in geometric, musical form is the equivalent of three octaves = 8 8 8 = the 24 courses of David, of which the eighth is the course of Abia.

 

Collecting these Hebrew and Greek similarities, there are 22 notes in three octaves and 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet. But, with 5 vowel variations, the Hebrew alphabet actually has 27 characters, the number of the book, Revelation, and the number of books in the New Testament. There are 22 chapters in Revelation and 22 books in the Old Testament - one being a mirror image of the other, summing the bookends to 22 + 22 = 44, the months of Jesus’ ministry. Then, 22 + 27 = 49, the number of years in the seven weeks of the temple restoration period of Daniel’s prophecy.

 

Given that the root form of the geometric constant, Pi, was once stated in Greek terminology as 22/7ths, and given that the early modes of the sevens of music were transmitted via the Greek culture, it becomes easy to see that all this cannot be mere coincidence. The book of Revelation is simply a geometric form of the fraction, 22/7.

 

The amazing record of Biblical history was not only transmitted via the language of Hebrew and Greek, but also implied by their construct of form and symbol, reaching even into the depth of the lunar calendar calculations and songs (Psalms) of the Appointed Times. These patterns even permeate into the sketch and outline of prophecy itself.

 

The Appointed Times, bound up with the Law and the Prophets, are all enclosed together in the sphere of the gospel of Jesus Christ and God’s plan of salvation for mankind.

 

Despite the slur and arrogance of modern theologians who proclaim that the gospel can be preached without the word of God, Jesus wholly disagreed by saying, “Do NOT think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did NOT come to destroy but to magnify” (paraphrase of Mt. 5:17). Therefore, the message of God cannot be fully conveyed if some or all elements of God’s words are destroyed. Any science to the contrary, Jesus well stated through the words of the apostle Paul, saying, “Professing to be wise, they became fools,” (Rom. 1:22).

 

Numbers equated to letters are a form of language or dialect - a dialect which is first necessary if we are to have words to describe the form. Therefore, 666 and 888 are numbers, but what does God want us to get from the form of this imagery? We should not pretend to have all the answers, but it is probably the visual, not the actual numbers, which keys the unlocking of the riddle. We are to use the numbers to sketch the picture, yet we do not yet fully know just how all the puzzle pieces fit together.

 

Now, if 666 conveys a prime number of evil portent, then what number would be the logical opposite? A good guess might be 777, the pattern of the seven seals, seven trumpets and seven bowl judgments of Revelation. One number sequence trumps the other and in the end good prevails over the evil.

 

Interestingly, a circular pattern of 777 has a whole number diameter, which rounds off to 247. That is probably no accident, as there is a lunar time lock and key between seven and 247. We have previously described how 247 forms the pattern weekdays of Atonement, Passover and Trumpets (2-4-7), in those years when Passover falls on Wednesday.

 

According to the sevens, how many additional days are spanned in the leap year months of 247 years? There are 7 x 30 = 210 days added per cycle, so 210 x 13 cycles = 2730 days or 390 weeks. The 210 days are added by the seven additional months of Adar (30 days per month) in 19 years.

 

But, resulting from the four calendar rules of adjustments (postponements), three days and three nights are factored out, resulting in the actual total days being 210 - 3 = 207 days, the gematria for “Light”, which is also the number of days contained each year in the seven festival month period of Nisan through Tishri.

 

Now, there is a very bizarre, but direct inference between 666, times, laws, the Beast power of Babylon the Great and the human genome applications.

 

The beast number, 666, taken from a fractional number view, is the equivalent of 2/3rds (0.666). Remember, we have discussed at great length the fact that there's a natural law of transition, involving lunar calculations, music and just basic circular symmetry. That point is the fraction or transition, 2-3.

 

How does this connect to times and laws, which become involved in the way that the Beast power of Revelation 13 and Daniel 7:25 will rule and control with persecutions and death?

 

Again, there is more to the "wisdom" of Revelation 13 than just the counting of a two-dimensional number from Greek gematria.  A question of mystery is posed, then the reader is practically given the answer, with very little depth of thought required. There must be more to it, and it likely connects to the activity and methods used by the 666 Beast power, in his system of control.

 

So, how does this 666, 0.666, 2/3rds, etc. work in our modern age? Changing the Appointed Times is obvious and easy to see. The Passover, Sabbath observance, holy days, etc., all these laws of God have long been attacked by the beast of the fourth world empire, going back to the earliest days of Rome.

 

The lunar calculations are profoundly ordered by the 2-3 transitions of the Hebrew calendar cycles, as laid out in the 3323332 patterns of the Metonic. The 23 and 32 points are used as time adjuster intervals, maintaining the seasons. Use of a calendar that is strictly solar based will void any connection to the 2-3 adjustments of the seven cycles of the Metonic leap year patterns.

 

In lunar calculations of the Hebrew calendar, we also see this imagery in the fact that days 2-3 are the cycle end/beginning points of the seven-day Trumpet declarations of the weekly cycles. And, it is here (day 2/3, Mon.-Tue) that the only fractional adjustments are ever made to the Hebrew calendar declarations.

 

Of course, it is obvious that the Testaments also transition on the number 23. That is, Chronicles to Matthew, in the original order of the books of the Bible, is a transition of a 22/23 count, a transition that introduces the genome (genealogy) of Jesus Christ in the first chapter of Matthew. This is because Matthew falls at the 23rd book of the Bible, following the 22 books of the Old Testament.

 

Now, the latter part of "changing times and laws" is most shocking. How does the Beast system intend to modify the natural laws of God? Perhaps it is simply this:  modern thinkers of science and medicine are dabbling in the mapping and alterations of the human genome. There is nothing inherently evil in the study and mapping of the human DNA, but undoubtedly part of this science will be used in the subjugation and mind control of the masses, involving what Revelation calls the mark of the Beast. This scenario will eventually involve buying, selling (the flow of commerce), and, yes, one arm of the control will find an avenue through medicine and healthcare.

 

So, how does this connect to the 666 or 2/3rds mark of geometric form? It is very simple. Are there not 23 chromosome pairs in the human genome? The total then, is 46 and the fraction 4/6ths = 0.666! Of course, such things can be mere coincidence, but Satan is the master copycat, and he finds avenues of influence through the natural things of God’s creation. He seeks to alter, change and “improve” on God’s handiwork, all for the purpose of deceit, as he conspires in his ongoing effort to destroy the plan of God. 

 

In any case, this symmetrical form of numbering boils down to the basic fraction of 18/27ths (= 0.666). Time = 18 parts per minute, and the Light (27) is Revelation, Jesus Christ and the 27th book. The sequence 666 can be summed is 6 + 6 + 6 = 18.

 

All time of the lunar calendar has been based on the 60 system. That is, a circle of 360 degrees, divided by 6 = 60. This is a natural law of creation, and if a more accurate method of time synchronization exists, then man has not yet discovered it. This base 60 system, from the outset of the electronic age, has been used to energize the mathematics of radio, television and communications, and is the basis of the modern computer cyber grids for planet earth. 

So, this fraction of 18/27ths can be reduced to 6/9ths = 2/3rds =0.666. And, what is the mirror reflection of 666? It is 999, or Revelation (27), and year 27 of two sequential Metonic cycles is the 10th seven (leap year), a 2-3 transition point, bearing the numbers of the seven heads, 10 horns and the eighth head of destruction. In year 27 of the Genesis account, the trials of Joseph come to an end, when the seven years of famine ceased. At that time, Joseph was 44 years old.

 

Again, these patterns could be mere coincidence, but then, why does the hand fit the glove so very, very well? If we want to see the picture of the whole, then we must draw the outline sketch, then connect all the dots, related to the age when Revelation 13 is coming upon us. This process of total control may yet take decades to unfold, but the stage seems to be set, the plan in place.

 

But, in everything God designs we can see there is logic and creative order. It becomes evident that in these cyclical, octave or circuit patterns there are connecting links of imagery, spanning many thousands of years.

 

From the historical transition of the rolling at Gilgal, in the days of the shout at the seventh circle and the falling walls of Jericho, to the crashing walls of Satan’s world (Babylon), the first resurrection, seventh octave day of Pentecost, and the blast of the seventh trumpet, the pattern dots all connect. They weave in and out of the story flow and roadmap, to form and sketch the full picture of prophetic events.

 

And, from the days of the new covenant transition of Jesus’ ministry, completing the circuit around the circle of the villages of the harp-shaped Sea of Galilee, we can observe these patterns at work. Paul later established a foundation, via the Greek culture - a fortress and foothold in Galatia, the land of the musical modes and culture of the Celts (the Gales) in Asia Minor. From those times, from the ministry of the apostle John and the churches of God in that first century region of the seven churches, the octave waves spanned the course of time, reaching that wave of crest when Jesus gave John the visions of Revelation. This was near the close of the first century AD, when in the circle of the seven church candlesticks came the eighth Figure of Light. Standing in the middle of the circle, Jesus became the Flame - a Self-contained Oil of Spirit burning.

 

But, in every octave or cycle is enclosed a repeat or double note, and since there are seven notes in every octave, following the pattern of the 2/7ths book of light, is embodied, by the two notes, two sevenths, so that the end is a new beginning. For instance, in an octave of the key of C, the first and last is the note C, thus the octave spans contains a double C of the seven-note scale. Therefore, though there are eight steps, 2/7ths are half notes (B to E & E to F), amounting to a total of seven steps or tones in one octave sequence of eight (6 + ½ + ½ = 8 steps).

 

About 1,400 years after Jesus’ Revelation to the apostle John, thousands of miles away on the border region of the Gali (Gales or Wales), in a land ever rich in the muse of psalm and the seven strings of music, William Tyndale was induced with a burning fire that the words of God, from the Greek of the canonized scripts of Ephesus and Galatia, should be translated into English. His desire for such a translation was so that every man, from the king to the plow boy, should eventually have at his fingertips, every written word of the Bible in his native tongue.

 

Though Tyndale accomplished his dream, it came at the highest price - betrayal, imprisonment and death by strangulation and burning at the stake. But, at the death of Tyndale the circle of the Gali had once again been turned to the next pitch of the octave, when a king of the Welsh line, Henry Tudor, the harp playing, octave king, the Eighth, permitted Tyndale’s Bible to be made available to his English subjects. Tyndale’s works had earlier been secretly supported by Henry’s wife, Queen Consort, Anne Boleyn. According to the dying request of Tyndale, God had opened the eyes of the king of England, and in the third decade of the 1500s, King Henry VIII approved a translation of the Bible in the English language. 

 

It is true that the word of God, as we know it, was completed with John’s canonization, at the close of the first century AD. However, the perfection of the presentation has continued down through the ages, a process which God has both inspired and obviously approved.

 

The original texts of both Hebrew and Greek have been preserved to our day, and the Greek text, brought from Constantinople in the 1400s AD, was acquired, translated and presented by the work of William Tyndale, then reworked by methods of a new presentation in the Geneva Bible of 1560, and eventually the KJV of 1611.

 

In the eras of the New Testament times, each work of the seven churches has been built upon those efforts and accomplishments, gone before, with each period of the seven weeks harvest having no reason of boast, since each generation of the sevens has nothing that it did not receive. Therefore, every week of the church histories, one church after the other, reaps where it did not sow.

 

David danced at the coming of the Ark, which carried the book of the law to Zion, but upon the end of the age comes a larger volume of knowledge and responsibility to carry. As the octave sevens unfold, with time marching on, there continues the fulfillment of the words of God to Daniel, “knowledge shall be increased” and in another place, “to whom much is given, much shall be required”.

 

As in the days of those who worked with Paul and later with John, cataloging, scripting, presenting and preserving the writings at Ephesus, the window of opportunity is ever closing. Just as it was for those of that first week of harvest, when the church age began, so it remains for all true believers to this very day. Time is of the essence.

 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 12

 

 

PSALM 49:4, THE DOUBLE OF 247

 

The Metonic or 19-year time cycle results from the placement of the lights in the heavens of Genesis 1:14. So, these determinations of signs and Appointed Times go all the way back to the half- octave, day-four of creation week - the very day projected forth to the future, the Wednesday, day-four Passover, signifying the timing of the statement of Revelation, that the Lamb of God was slain from the foundation of the world.

 

Therefore, the laws of music and other geometric patterns of physics are simply a mirror copy of those natural relationships of times, dating from the sevens (the week) of the Genesis account.

 

These physical patterns connect even to the spirit realm of hidden things, which man has not yet been privy to fully understand. This we know, since God, Who is spirit, states in Leviticus 23, "these are My Appointed Times" (Lev. 23:2). That is, they had already been predetermined and shall endure into eternity.   

 

Our emotions are greatly inspired and affected by music, a science which is impossible to touch, disassemble and fully analyze. God, in the way He has created our internal psyche, made it so. It is something of the spirit, unseen and unable to be fully explained.  

 

Psalm 49:4, perhaps a prophetic statement amidst the lyrics of a Psalm, written some seven to eight centuries in advance of the close of the first century AD, that one day the Book with a key, Revelation, would be written by the Lamb of God. He alone is the One qualified to “open” the seven seals - a scroll unrolled by the pattern of sevens, in a fashion very similar to the octave tones of the harp, progressing through the repeating waves of the seven-note scale, in the three-octave, 22-chapter 27th New Testament book, Revelation.

 

Goliath, a giant standing over six cubits tall (6 + 1 span), was the fore type of the blasphemous “beast” of Daniel and Revelation (1 Sam. 1:17). But in the end this beast will have a challenger. In prophetic language this will be the eighth Son of Jesse, Jesus Christ.

 

“Behold, I come“, the prophecy said, “In the scroll of the Book it is written of Me (Psalm 40:7). Jesus Christ, the Son of David will stand to face the giant, in the finale of the Daniel’s seven-year week, completing the octave circuit, begun in Galilee - a concert of staff, line and measure, written and keyed in the sevens of seven, in the scroll of the seven-seal book, book two-seven of the New Testament, Revelation.

 

For more than 500 years the mysterious riddles of Daniel and other prophets had been locked and sealed, closed to understanding. But here in Revelation, near the close of the first century AD, Jesus Christ, by the key of the sevens, unlocks the spectacular panorama of man’s destiny. And, it is here, standing singular in a one time, disclosure, that Jesus opens the full mystery of the seventh annual seven (Sabbath), the lunar date and Appointed Time, 7/22, the Last Great Day (Rev. 20:5).

 

 

The Pattern (6 + 1 = 7)

 

Seven (6 + 1) is the number of covenant, oath, witness and perfection - a sign and symbol of times, octaves and cycles.  These things travel in circles of beginnings and endings, stemming from the voice of the living God. He spoke and it existed. “The heavens declare the glory of God; their line has gone out through all the earth and their words to the end of the world.” (Ps. 19:1-4)

 

Though, in our modern culture, we have somewhat redefined the meaning of the Greek word “apocalypse” to mean gloom and destruction, the title of the 27th Book of the New Testament literally means “to open” - to unveil the mystery (a riddle). The opening of the riddle of Psalm 49:4, with Daniel and Revelation is quite amazing. The prophecies of both Daniel and Revelation are identified with multiples of the sevens and the half-week divisions of the same. This is precisely the outlay of Revelation, and in the number of Psalm 49:4 is contained the perfect multiple of 7 x 7 (49) and the half-division of seven (4). The half of 494 is 247, the letters of the Alpha and Omega (24) and the pattern number construct of the book of Revelation (7).  And, again, the 70 weeks of Daniel begins with the verse and word description, 24 “sevens are determined for your people.” (Dan. 9:24). We understand that in context this literally means seventy weeks of years (490). But for the total length of significant prophetic time we must, by whole number count, add an additional four years to the 70 weeks of Daniel, bringing the sum to the Psalm 490 + 4 = 49:4. Therefore, the mystery is thrown open and disclosed by the sevens of the harp (Psa. 49:4).    

 

How are these prophetic mysteries opened and disclosed to the seven churches of the New Testament age? They are disclosed by a three-octave pattern wave of the seven-string notes - seven seals, seven trumpets and the seven vials of the seventh trump, followed by a new beginning at the 22nd or third-octave event of the scale. Revelation is the Book with seven seals, with the seventh seal unrolled in a double seven of 14 intervals - seven trumpets and seven bowl judgments.

 

In the traditional harp pattern, Revelation exhibits an exact G to g (7 to 7) progression by the 22 chapters and 22 tones of event sequence, forming a geometric circle of 22, threaded by a seven- diameter passing through the chapters, increasing in pitch and intensity with each line and measure of the chapter sheets of the Revelation melody.

 

 

 

 

For many centuries, in our western culture, small harps typically had this 22-string, three-octave G to g, seven to seven pattern. The ancient world of the Greek culture used this basic circular form of 22/7ths as the value of the mathematical constant, Pi (3.1428), later refined to 3.14159.

 

Without question, this is also the outline form of the 27th New Testament book, Revelation - 22 chapters, formed and connected by the common denominator of seven, opening with Jesus’ instructions to John that the message (book) was to be conveyed to the seven churches of Asia Minor. The form of the book takes on a pattern analogy, as if to be played on a three octave harp of 22 strings.

 

There are three sets of sevens - seven seals, seven trumpets and seven vials. Then, the end connects to a new beginning by closing the circle at the chapter note of 22 - the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet, which has 5 vowel variations. The total letters of the alphabet is 22 + 5 = 27, the number placement of the last book of the New Testament, Revelation.

 

In the 22nd book of the New Testament, the epistle written to the Hebrews, the apostle Paul makes a profound use of the sevens imagery, linking a subject of the old covenant directly to the activity of the new.

 

Here, in chapters 3 and 4 of Hebrews, Paul, by this example, demonstrates the continual and ongoing requirement of the fourth commandment for Christians throughout the ages. This, he accomplishes by weaving the threads of the seventh day Sabbath (Heb. 4:9), connecting the importance of the 6 + 1, day seven Genesis account to the New Testament church, more than 4,000 years after the creation event.  

 

It was to one of the seven churches of Revelation, Ephesus, the very first of seven (or, 1-7) that Paul wrote the 17th book of the New Testament, the epistle to the Ephesians. Decades later, in the book of Revelation, Jesus revealed to the apostle John a story which swirls about the imagery of the seven heads and 10 horns (= 17), a stunning discourse of end time events that John was to deliver to the seven churches, beginning at Ephesus. Traveling the road of the mail route, around the circle of church history, from Ephesus to Laodicea, the transmission of John’s message is still ongoing.

 

In this 17th book of Ephesians, almost as if by a metaphor of preface to Revelation, Paul speaks of this 7 + 10 power of darkness, saying, “We do not wrestle against flesh and blood….but, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. “ (Eph. 6:12)

 

Since Ephesians, in the original Greek order, was placed at book 17 of the New Testament, it then becomes book 39 of the Bible, as a whole. This is because in the original order, the Old Testament contained 22 books. Therefore, 22 + 17 = 39, which was the age of the patriarch Joseph at the end of his separation from his father, Jacob. Joseph was 17 when the 22 years of separation began, and when Jacob arrived in Egypt, in the second year of famine, there were yet five of the seven years of famine remaining - a pattern of the 5/2 division of the seven note scale. That is, 5 whole and 2 half notes make up the total of the seven notes. So, the years of Joseph’s separation from his father came to an end at the transition to year 23. Jacob would live 17 more years before expiring at age 147.

 

The Old Testament ends with book 22 and the New Testament age begins with Jesus’ genealogy, as listed in Matthew, the book of Old to New Testament transition, number 23 of the Bible.

 

In light of the placement of this 23rd book of the Bible, the gospel of Matthew, it seems quite fitting that since the human genome contains 23 pairs of chromosomes, making up the DNA of mankind, the 23rd book, at the transition of the Testaments, opens with the amazing statement - “The book of the genome (genealogy) of Jesus Christ, the son of David”! (Mt. 1:1)

 

 

The Seventh Octave and the 50 Generations

 

Matthew lays out the record of Jesus’ genome in three sets of 14, forming 42 generations (Mt. 1:17). By analogy, Jesus’ life and ministry then begins another set of seven generations of the spirit, to be completed by the work of the seven-church pattern of history, bringing the total generations to a perfect 42 + 7 = 7 x 7 = 49 generations - each week of the seven church-era weeks representing a generation of spirit-begotten siblings of Jesus Christ.

 

The seven spirit generations are made complete at the seventh trumpet resurrection of Revelation, which is the 27th book of the New Testament. The seventh trumpet then brings in the 49th generation of the whole, which happens near the end of the seventh seal of this 49th book of the Bible. So here we have a multiple overlay of the 7 x 7 = 49 pattern. The latter seven generations, a spiritual house of the seed of Abraham, are made possible by the mid-week Nisan 14 event of 30 AD, the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

 

Thus the total generations become the 42, plus seven, for a total of 49 generations. This is 3.5 sets of fourteen, the numbers of the half-week (3.5 days) and a double week (14 days), coincident with the number 1,260 days, or the 42 months (i.e. half-week) of the two witnesses of Revelation 11. Here, in this chapter, is the half division of seven, pivoting on the time of the two witnesses, who were dead for 3.5 days, but resurrected to begin the seventh trumpet process of completing the 3.5 sets of the 14 generation patterns (forty-two + seven).

 

So, by this view there are seven sevens (7 x 7) of generations from Abraham, ending at the seventh trumpet. But the last set of seven generations becomes a spiritual house, beginning at the death and resurrection of Jesus, the Firstborn of the seventh of seven generations from Abraham. Then, in 30 AD, Jesus’ seventh day resurrection was followed by the coming of the Holy Spirit on the day of the seventh octave, seven-week harvest, day 50, Pentecost.

 

Thus, at Pentecost 30 AD was begun the harvest period of the remaining seven generations - the seven-church growth of the seven spiritual generations, though the time actually dates all the way back to the father of the faithful, Abraham. That is, many of the early patriarchs, kings and prophets will also be in the first resurrection.

 

There will be a day-50 Pentecost work of Jesus Christ in the final hour of Revelation. Here, an innumerable multitude shall attain salvation. These may be the harvest gleanings of Leviticus 23:22, or perhaps may also represent those who attain spirit life in the second resurrection. But in effect, the latter work of the Laodicean age is an eighth church of day-50, which Jesus brings, amounting then to a 50th or Jubilee generation.

 

Analogies can never be taken as conclusive proof of theory, but such patterns are quite interesting to consider, as we continue in these thoughts of music appreciation, viewed as if through the harp and her seven-string notes - the melody of the Appointed Times of Jesus Christ.

 

 

Ephesus, the First Church (1 of 7) and 17

 

Ephesus was built upon the ancient region of Iona, from which came the name of the first and prominent mode of the music of the early Greek influence, the Ionian mode - the key of base C of the diatonic scale, often arranged in a bagpipe/dulcimer form of GGC = 7 + 7 + 3 = 17. But in the key of C, this would be 5 + 5 + 1 = 11. These are the two divisions of the weekday declarations of the calculated Hebrew calendar. That is, those days declared are 2,357 = 17, but those voided are 146 = 11.

 

Before the apostle John came to Ephesus, the churches of Asia Minor were raised up by the preaching and stewardship of the apostle Paul. It was from this gentile church at Ephesus, the 1/7 church of Revelation, in the winter of the 17th year of the Metonic, 56 AD, that Paul wrote to the church at Corinth, stating that he would remain with the brethren at Ephesus until the observance of Pentecost, in the spring of 57 AD (I Cor. 16:8).

 

At this time, it appears that Paul gave instructions that on the first day (1/7) of each week of the seven-week count to Pentecost, they were to lay aside produce from the spring harvest for the poor at Jerusalem (I Cor. 16:2). Therefore, here in the midst of the gentile churches of Asia Minor, we can observe the use of counting by the sevens of the Appointed Times, in a pattern similar to the octaves of the musical scale (seven octaves or weeks to Pentecost), counting to the day of Pentecost, and beginning from the seven days of Unleavened Bread.

 

It is interesting that it was in that 17th year of the Metonic (56/57 AD), when Paul spoke of walking through a great and effective door that had been opened (I Cor. 16:9). One can then assume that he planned to begin walking through that door at some point in the following year, the 27th year since the founding of the church at Jerusalem, 30 AD. Note that in the seven-church circle of the week, in an amazing parallel to music, the transition of 8/1 of the C major scale (the octave), Ephesus/Iona, falls at 27/17, an artifact of the BC (middle C) point of scale transition.

 

 

The Modes of the Scriptures

 

Ephesus and Iona were the sea gates of commerce and culture, amidst the landscape and regions of the Lydian, Dorian, Aeolian and Phrygian modes -  place names from the times of Paul, later followed by the apostle John’s Ephesus Scriptorium, seat of the seven churches of Asia Minor.

 

Many years before the 17th book of the New Testament was written to the Ephesians by the apostle Paul, this 17-pattern imagery occurred also at the very beginning of Jesus’ ministry.

 

At that time, it appears likely that on the Appointed Time of the Day of Atonement, Jesus began a fast of 40 days. This, He did in preparation to confront this power of darkness, the spiritual host of wickedness and goat of the wilderness - the dragon with seven heads and ten horns (17), Satan himself. Paul describes our daily confrontation with the powers of darkness in this 17th book of the New Testament, the letter to the Ephesians (Eph. 6:12).

 

If Atonement was the day Jesus’ fast began, then the 40 days began on the lunar 7/10 (= 17), in the fall of 26 AD, the 6th year of that Metonic, some 44 months and 4 days before His crucifixion on Wednesday, Nisan 14, 30 AD. This foreboding number, 17 and/or 7 + 10, seems to be an identifying mark of Satan. Or, it may represent a number of triumph, signifying the act of overcoming evil.

 

In any case, it is fitting that the goat of the wilderness is finally put away on the Day of Atonement (7/10), Revelation chapter 20 and Leviticus 16. Another pattern of 17 occurred in Noah’s day of the great deluge, when the 40 days of rain that began on the 17th day of the second month, ended at the 27th day of Sivan. As can be seen, both 17 and 27 are a combination of tens and sevens.

 

In a similar imagery of 7 + 10 = 17, it is said that Jeremiah’s last work, Lamentations, near the close of the second temple age, was performed in the temple as a musical dirge. Lamentations, in the original order of the Old Testament books, is number 17 and describes the oppression of the Jerusalem, from the days of Josiah to the destruction by ancient Babylon.

 

The sevens, tens, seventeens, twenty-sevens and other related number artifacts are foundation number patterns of prophetic significance. These patterns will play an

 

increasing role in world events, as time advances to the finale of and completion of Daniel’s week 70.

 

The world is in a very fragile state, a cliff-hanger, waiting for the rope to snap. And perhaps there is some strange parallel of connection between this age of the 44th president of these United States and the 44 kings of Israel and Judah. While these parallels can be noted, the course of history can be determined and known only by God Himself.

 

 

Prophetic Patterns and Lamentations

 

Now, 22 is the 6th note F of the diatonic and 66 is the frequency of the note C. Therefore, taken as a pattern form of music, the chapter outlay of Lamentations by verse is 22-22-66-22-22 for the five chapter set, or in the key of C, the notes are 4-4-1-4-4 and sum to 17.

 

This ziggurat/pyramid form, chapter and verse pattern of the 17th Old Testament book, Lamentations, in the arrangement of a five- step sequence, bears a striking resemblance to the current and very odd 10-year, double-five sets of the day of Trumpets cluster groupings - declarations of the Appointed Time of the first day of the seventh lunar month, commonly called the day of Trumpets, Tishri 1. These clusters are like gathering clouds, passing through the autumn skies of Tishri.

 

The fall of 2015 began the 6th number (2) of the 10 years, which date fell on the weekday of Monday, Tishri 1, 19th year of that current Metonic cycle, September 14, 2015. The Trumpet cloud patterns are, 5-5-2-5-5 and 2-2-5-2-2, beginning with the year 2010, year 2727 since the fall of ancient Israel, 718 BC. These patterns sometimes form on the 247-year cycles, when the declarations of four out of five sequential years all fall on the same day of the week, in a specific pattern. In the key of A, the clouds are E-E-B-E-E and B-B-E-B-B, for the 10 years. Note that all these Tishri 1 dates for the 10 years fall on Monday or Thursday, days two and five of the week, and that the sum is 2 + 5 = 7, the notes of the musical scale.

 

Again, these clusters are formed on the first day of the seventh lunar month, and the double numbers always indicate a 385-day, 55- week lunar year. Therefore, each cluster includes two of the 55- week spans, which sum to 55 + 55 weeks = 110 weeks, the number of Joseph’s lifespan, and the note A of the diatonic (110 hertz). But, the total for both back to back, mirror sets of the two five-year clusters would be 110 + 110 = 220 weeks of the 385-day leap years. This frequency (220 hertz) is the fourth octave note A of the scale.

 

This leaves the two vortex numbers of the five-year connected spans, two and five, the split of the short and long notes of the seven-note scale, and the split or division of the seven years of famine when Jacob came to Goshen. That is, the Scripture in Genesis states, “There are yet five more years of famine.” Thus, two years had already passed, at Joseph’s age of 39, in the ninth year of the feast-famine 14 year cycle. The two sets of 2-2 sum to 22 + 22 = 44, the age of Joseph when the famine in Egypt ended, and the length (44 mos.) of the ministry of Jesus Christ.

 

This strange pattern of the back-to-back Trumpet clouds has not happened since the 247-year cycle, beginning with the year of 1763, at the end of the Seven Years War. This war is sometimes called the French and Indian War. Many historians have written that the outcome of this war produced the birth of the British Empire, referring to the fact that Britain was ceded the control of vast portions of the world’s continents by the Treaty of Paris, including what is now our 27th state, Florida. 

 

The scale of music has seven notes, so each cluster of the Trumpet clouds amounts to five notes or 5/7ths, though some are doubles. Nevertheless, the whole pattern of 10 years equals 5/7ths + 5/7ths = 10/7ths, which, by number set, is 10 + 7 = 17, and the product is 10 x 7 = the 70 weeks of Daniel’s prophecy.

 

Only three cloud-pattern formations of these five set clusters are possible in the lunar declarations. The third pattern, 7-7-3-7-7, also crossed paths with this 19-year Metonic, beginning in 1999. So, all three cloud formations will have passed through parts of the current 19-year cycle, which began in 1997. This is quite unusual. The Saturday (7)-Tuesday (3) pattern of 7-7-3-7-7 also occurred beginning with the year of birth of Jesus Christ, in the fall of 5 BC. In that lunar year, the day of Trumpets was declared on Saturday (7). That time of the births of John the Baptist and Jesus Christ was also a period of several lunar/solar eclipse events, similar to what has been called the four blood moons of 2014/15.

 

These Tishri 1 cluster patterns are a phenomena, generated by the mathematics of the lunar calculations, occurring, on average, one or two times per century, and always formed of the 385-day lunar leap years. But very seldom do they form in the double clouds of the current mirror image, back-to-back clusters, as in our age of 2010 through 2019 AD. This is very unusual.

 

Again, in the years of Jesus’ conception, gestation, birth and infancy, similar patterns occurred. In 6 BC a double cycle of lunar/solar eclipses began to occur, which would fall on the Passover/Tabernacles cycles for two consecutive years. This was during the years of the conception and births of both Jesus Christ and his cousin, John the Baptist.

 

Mary apparently became pregnant of the Holy Spirit in the month of Kislev (December), 6 BC. Elizabeth conceived John about six months before Gabriel’s appearance to Mary. Earlier in that year, both solar and lunar eclipses occurred coincident with the Appointed Times of Passover and Tabernacles (See “When Was Jesus Born”, Fred R. Coulter).

 

In the fall of 5 BC, the year of Jesus’ birth, the day of Trumpets formed a cloud cluster for five full years of lunar declarations. The pattern was 7-7-3-7-7 for the lunar declaration of the new civil years, which is Sat.-Sat.-Tue.-Sat.-Sat. For Passover, always occurring three days earlier in the week, the companion pattern is 4-4-7-4-4 or

Wed.-Wed.-Sat.-Wed.-Wed. At that time, four Passovers fell on Wednesday in five years. Thus, for these coincident Trumpets/Passover and eclipse cycle patterns of the four lunar and four solar eclipses, we can derive the following for the time of Jesus’ human birth:

 

For the five years of Passover declarations, beginning 5 BC, the cloud pattern 4-4-7-4-4, by days of the week, was formed. In music speak of the old Greek modes, this is the bagpipe or lap dulcimer tuning of the diatonic. That is, DDGDD or Wed.-Wed.-Sat.-Wed.-Wed. So, it is actually a musically resonate pattern, but also quite prophetic, as the days represented are the crucifixion (Wednesday = 4) and the resurrection (Saturday = 7). In any year when Trumpets is declared on Saturday, Passover automatically falls on Wednesday, the half octave or half week.

 

From this five year pattern, generated by the lunar dates surrounding the times of Jesus’ birth and life, are listed the following correlation of times and events:

 

4-4-7-4-4 (Passover 5 through 1 BC, 4 = Wed., 7 = Sat.)

1. The day of His birth, Saturday (7), Trumpets, 5BC

2. Day His ministry began, Atonement, Wednesday (4), 26 AD

3. Length of His ministry, 44 months

4. Day of His selection as the Lamb of God, 30 AD (7-Sat.)

5. Day that His physical ministry ended (4), Wednesday

6. Day of His death (4), Wednesday

7. Day of His resurrection (7) late Saturday, Nisan 17

8. Length of days from crucifixion to day of ascent from Mt. of       Olives (44)

9. The annual Sabbaths (7)....see Leviticus 23

10. The weekly Sabbath day (7)
11. The 8 Appointed Times (days) of Passover through Unleavened   Bread (4 + 4 = 8)
12. Feast of Weeks (7).....Pentecost

13. Feast of Trumpets (7th month, first day), 4th annual Sabbath
14. Feast of Tabernacles, 8 days (4 + 4)

15. The 4 rules of the lunar calendar adjustments

16. The 7 years of plenty (Joseph in Egypt)

17. The 7 years of famine (Joseph in Egypt)

18. The sevens of the dreams of Pharaoh (Joseph in Egypt)

19. The 7 seals of Revelation

20. The 7 trumpets of Revelation

21. The 7 vials of Revelation

22. The 7 angels with the trumpets

23. The 7 churches of Revelation

24. The 4 winds of Revelation

25. The 4 kingdoms (beasts) of Daniel 7

26. The 4 gospel accounts

27. The 4 living creatures of Revelation

28. The 4 parts of covenant

30. The 4 quadrants of the day

 

We could add more examples, but enough are listed here to make the point.

 

And, from the root numbers of 4-4-7-4-4 come the obvious reduction by division, 2-2-7-2-2. Seven cannot be further evenly divided, but from the foundational elements we can also see the rudiments of the basic number of the lunar sevens of the weekday key, 2-4-7, the diatonic note B (247 hertz) and the 247-year cycle of the seven-day week declarations. That is, lunar dates falling on the very same day of the week at 247-year intervals. Saturday, in Hebrew calendar language, bears the numbers 0 and 7. Therefore, the pattern and the division could be stated as, 2-2-0-2-2, or 4-4-0-4-4. In this obviously appears the number, 44, which was stamped upon the events of Jesus’ ministry in different ways.

 

Seven is the anchor stone around which the lunar calendar is formed, and we often see the 247 pattern framework in the mathematics of the Appointed Times declarations.

 

 

The Shadow and Cloud of the Appointed Times

 

From the pattern imagery surrounding so many historical events of the Appointed Times, a point of Scripture becomes filled to the full, in the statement of Paul:

 

"Therefore, let no one judge you regarding a festival or new moon or Sabbaths, which are a shadow (pattern or outline) of things to come (prophetic), but the body is of Christ"(Col. 2:16-17).

 

That is, the shadow cast by the act of observing the Appointed Times is to be distinguished from that which is actually casting or projecting the shadow, which is Jesus Christ. Therefore, if there is no observance of the times mentioned, then there can be no shadow cast forth. Without and apart from the reality of Jesus, there is nothing from which a shadow may be cast.

 

Every projected shadow or pattern of outline comes from that which is real. The pattern follows and replicates the movement and actions of the image or person from which it comes. Therefore, the shadow cast by the Appointed Times is from the form and body of Jesus Christ, the Cloud which also cast a shadow over Israel of old.

 

The shadow outline, described by Paul in Colossians 2:16-17, moves about, acting out His ministry, life and death, but more importantly, following the resurrection, His ongoing work as High Priest of the new covenant age.

 

Through and by observance of His Appointed Times, a prophetic outline of past, present and future events are enacted, portraying by their shadow, the plan of God to salvation. This, through Jesus Christ, the sacrificial Lamb, High Priest and Mediator, Who projects an outline or shadow, cast forth by the new moon (Trumpets), festivals and Sabbaths of the Appointed Times of worship, observed by the church that He founded.

 

He is the Cloud or Image from which the outline comes and that which He projects moves about throughout the Appointed Times, which are prophetic. This shadow, by these times of worship, is the temporal evidence of that which is to come - evidence which lives by and through observance. The Body, Jesus Christ, is the reality, but the festivals, Sabbaths and Appointed Times are His shadow, which project, sketch and outline the way to salvation.

 

Speaking of cycles and shadows of things in the present, cast from the histories of the past, it is a bit bizarre to realize that at the beginning of the 21st century, near the end of the lunar year 2000/2001 AD, 2717 years past the conquest of ancient Israel by the armies of Assyria (in 718 BC), the infamous day of 9/11 occurred (fall, 2001 AD). The destruction of the World Trade Center towers took place at the C note of the week, Tuesday, day three, the 23rd day of Elul.

 

In the ages of antiquity, the prophet Amos foretold the coming of the Messiah, when God would raise up the ruins of the tent of David. This was prophesied in the verses of Amos 9:11 (790’s BC). So, while the ruins of one structure were raised up, the buildings of another were destroyed (9/11, 2001).

 

The event of 9/11 was perhaps a preview of just three verses before, where God prophesied, “Behold, the eyes of the Lord God are on the sinful kingdom…..I will utterly destroy the house of Jacob.” (Amos 9:8). Then, little more than 60 years after the prophecy of Amos 9:11, another prophet, Isaiah described, “The bricks have fallen down.” (Isa. 9:10).  

 

Just one week after Elul 23, 2001, on yet another Tuesday, came the day of Trumpets, which falls on Tuesday only 11.5% of the time. This number, if related to days (1150), becomes 2300 evenings and mornings, a snapshot glimpse in time, having occurred in type by the desolation of the Jerusalem temple at the hand of Antiochus Epiphanes, about 169 BC (Ref: Dan. 8:14). The end type of Antiochus and his acts will yet occur again, in the events described in Daniel 9 and Matthew 24:15.

 

Antiochus, history records, on the Occult day of December 25th in that year (169 BC) sacrificed a pig on the temple altar and placed a statue of Zeus in the Holy Place! This, in honor of his sun god, on a day that is a bit obvious (Dec. 25th), with no further need of discussion, except to say that this sun god and Zeus of Pergamos is still worshiped, some 2,200 years after that infamous event.

 

In fact, in 2008, in Denver, Colorado, the current president of the United States gave his acceptance speech of nomination against the backdrop of a specially designed replica of the ancient altar of Zeus! Somehow, the apples of the present never fall too far from the tree of the past.

 

 

The early apostles were in constant conflict with the practices and celebrations of these Occult gods and goddesses. In the first century AD, the apostle John ministered to the churches in the regions near the altar of Zeus at Pergamos and the temple of Diana at Ephesus. That region of the churches of Asia Minor was so steeped in Occult worship that John was moved to write in the last verse of the epistle of I John 5:21, “Little children keep yourself from idols!”

 

John’s disciples, over the decades, would have observed the throngs of pilgrimage coming to the surrounding cities of Asia Minor to worship at the temples and altars of the Occult. This, when the clergy of the Christian church at Rome began to change the holy days of God to the dates of Satanic worship, moving the weekly Sabbath from Saturday to the Sunday of Zeus, and fixing the date of Passover always on Easter Sunday, the day of the goddess, Diana of Ephesus! Rome, the fourth world kingdom, conquered and inherited the cultures and religions of Persia and Greece, which included all the gods, goddesses, their temples and forms of worship.  

 

In the late second term of the 44th president of the United States the world entered the 19th year of the Metonic cycle, on the very notes of a seemingly never-ending conflict having to do with the modern nations of Syria (Assyria), Persia (Iran) and Iraq (Babylon).

 

Troubles in the Middle East are always part of our daily headlines, much of which stems from the religious dogma of that culture. Please remember that it was Simon the magician who troubled the early church (Acts 8:9) with his sorceries. The populace showed him much respect, as he paraded himself among them as being someone great. It is believed by some scholars that his practices stemmed from the priesthood of the Zoroastrians, which came out of Persia (Iran) and Babylon, a religion also having links to the cult of Mithras. And, over these ancient cults of Rome, having the oversight of all Occult worship, was one called the Pontifex Maximus.

 

This region of Syria, Babylon and Persia has long been a hotbed of demonic activity, and in our day, by the hundreds of thousands, throngs from that region are flooding into Europe, the British Isles and on to the Americas. And, in the very age when all this is taking place, for the first time ever, the modern magician, inheritor of all the many offices of these ancient rites, a great one comes to the United States to address our very lawmaking body (Congress). Almost 2,000 years have passed from those days of Simon Magus of Samaria. Yet, from the elite rulers of nations to the lowest servants of society, the populace is still mesmerized by the sorceries of the Occult. It seems there is nothing new under the sun. 

 

These world flashpoints involving Israel and the Middle East, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Egypt and other nations of that hemisphere, will undoubtedly continue to smoke and rumble, building toward the climax at the end of the age. Only time will reveal how the moves in this international game of chess play out. The world is a thick mixing bowl of religion and politics. In the broad spectrum, these troubles are the fringe of the conflict. The focal point of the finale will be Jerusalem and the construction of a third physical temple. 

 

Revelation and the Three Times Seven plus One

 

Now, by a 22-string three octave form, the book of Revelation comes to an end at chapter 22G, the seventh note of the scale, with a new beginning and rest (a seven) for mankind. This pattern, then, folds the circle back to Genesis 2:1 and the Garden of Eden, where God rested on the seventh day from all His works. Hence, the pattern of creation week and the beginning is 6 + 1 = seven, and the pattern of the seals of Revelation and the end of Satan’s rule of earth, is opened by 6 + 1 = seven (seals).

 

Moreover, this 6 + 1 pattern of the Revelation seals, with connection to the three octaves of the form 7/22, is also found in the seven annual sevens (Sabbaths), observed in the ages of both the Old and New Testament times. That is, the seven Sabbaths are divided into a distinct pattern arrangement of 6 + 1, in that the first six events are all coupled to the first resurrection, the return of Christ and His millennial reign, while the last seven (annual Sabbath) is the stand-alone occurrence of the Last Great Day, falling on our familiar pattern date of 7/22 - the 22nd day of the seventh lunar month. A full circle of 22 has a diameter of seven, thus one is overlaid upon the other and the seven annual Sabbaths of the sacred year end at the month and day, 7/22.

 

This last day of the seventh seven (7/22), following the 7,000 years, pictures the second resurrection and judgment period for the remaining billions of mankind who were not included in the ages leading to the first resurrection of the dead in Christ.

 

Thus, as in the weekly cycle of 6 + 1, we see a distinct separation of the two parts which make up the pattern of the annual Sabbaths of the sevens.

 

In the week there are six days of work, plus the seventh day of rest, and in the seven annual Sabbaths, there are six which transverse the times of both the old and new covenants, ending with the seventh day of the Feast of Tabernacles. Then comes the last annual seven, on the 22nd day of the seventh month, Tishri (7/22).

 

Seven, a combination of 6 + 1, by number, is the pattern of Isaiah 61, foretelling the ministry of Jesus and the seven harvest weeks of the Jubilee span, leading to Pentecost (see Luke 4 & Isa. 61). And, again, we have 6 + 1, the pattern numbers of the 61% time adjustments to the lunar calculations of the 207 day, seven-month, seven annual Sabbaths and seven leap year cycle of the Hebrew calendar C major scale. By rules of the calculated lunar calendar, the first day of the new civil year (1/7), Tishri 1, is modified from the exact day of the molad, precisely 61% of the time - roughly six out of every 10 years.

 

Sixty-one percent is a number formed by combinations of 17 and 27. That is, 17 + 27 = 44 and 44 + 17 = 61%. These are prophetic pattern artifacts of time. The patriarch Joseph was 17 when he became a slave in Egypt, and 27 years later the double seven years (14) of double seven dreams of Pharaoh ended, when Joseph was 44 - the length of months in the ministry of Jesus Christ (44 months) and 44 hertz, the frequency of the sixth note F of the diatonic scale.

Let’s further dissect this pattern of 6 + 1 = 7. Stated again, in Revelation, which is the 7 x 7 or 49th book of the Old and New Testaments combined, there are seven seals, unrolled in the familiar 6 + 1 pattern fashion of the seven-day weekly cycle, divided into two distinct segments. The entire span of the first six seals are opened in a sequence of only 17 verses of Revelation, chapter 6, then the remaining seventh seal of the seven, requires 10 full chapters to unfold - yet one more pattern of the 7 + 10 = 17.

 

In all, then, the span of the seven seals of this 27th New Testament Book spans 17 verses and 10 chapters. The total is then, 17 + 10 = 27, which product of numbers is 2 x 7 = 14, a double witness seven and the signature of the Passover Lamb of God, including His sacrifice of Nisan 14, Wednesday, the middle or half octave of the seven day week. 

 

So eleven chapters (6 through 16) span the total of the seven seals, and 11 is the common denominator of the diatonic scale of music for harp and other instruments of the open strings. The seventh seal ends at the juncture of Revelation 17 and the fall of Babylon, but the first seal begins at chapter 6, with the preface to the seventh seal, opening at chapter seven. Here, the angel, with the seal of the living God, seals the 144,000 of the tribes of Israel. All this comes symbolically during the time setting of the seventh and last church, Laodicea.

 

The patterns of the 144,000 thousands of Revelation are quite memorable and a subject of much interest. In that regard, the “new song” of David's Psalm 144 corresponds with the “new song” of the 144,000 of Revelation 14. In both Scriptures the song (Psalm) is accompanied by the harp, a favorite instrument of David.

 

It is interesting that this Psalm (144) occurs in the 5th book of the Psalms, a book with 44 songs - by number, the book of grace (5). Book 5 begins at Psalm 107 (another 17). By sequence of the seven leap years of the C major scale of the Metonic cycle, the 5th note of grace falls on year 14, the 5th leap year of the seven years contained in the 19-year Metonic. In the same set, that is, Book 5, comes Psalm 133, the 27th Psalm of that particular book and the 14th Psalm of the Psalms of ascent. The number 133, a Psalm of unity, sums to seven and is the seventh multiple of the 19-year Metonic (7 x 19 = 133).

 

These Scriptures are also aligned with the two half notes EB of the scale, at 330 and 494 hertz respectively, and correspond with the new song and riddle of Psalm 33 and 49:4. The product of the 10- string harp of this Psalm is 10 x 33 = 330 hertz, the harp note frequency of the Thursday note, E, the self-same day of covenant and exodus from sin. As described in the words of Psalm 33:3, this is the “shout” of joy, played skillfully on the harp, but also, in type, this is the fall of Jericho and the destruction of Babylon the Great, in the days of the last trump and the new song of the first resurrection. The numbers are also a close mathematical number (Psa. 33:3) of the core element of time calculations, the lunar halek of 3.33 seconds per lunar part of time (i.e. 18 parts per minute = 3.33 per sec.).

 

 

 

Chapter 13

 

 

THE STAGE OF THE REFORMATION

 

(The Acts and the Actors)

 

 

According to the words of Jesus Christ, when the blind follow the blind, both fall in the ditch.

 

It was some 1,500 years later that the reformer, linguist and philosopher, Erasmus added to the concept by stating, "in the land of the blind, the man with one eye becomes king".

 

Erasmus perceived that scholarship and education were doors to enlightenment. He surely believed this, because it was Erasmus, son of Gerrard of Gouda, who was among the first of his time to actively suggest translating the Scriptures into a language other than that of the Latin. Once he had copies of the original Greek manuscripts, he could see that what had been translated in the past was not only filled with errors, but was also inferior to what could now be accomplished by working from the very source of the original documents of the Greek text.

 

Men like William Tyndale agreed with his conclusion, but the motives of Tyndale were very different from those of Erasmus. The latter, in the concept of improved scholarship, merely wanted a better translation of the New Testament, while Tyndale realized that with a text in English, men could set about to free themselves from the inquisitions and tyranny of Roman dominance.

 

The populace of England and Europe had long been subjugated by the powers of the Roman clergy, working with the force of civil government. But now, through scholarship and the printed word in the native tongue, the eyes of blind ignorance could begin to open. This was the thrust of Tyndale’s purpose.   

 

Through the ages, those in power have ruled over the masses by controlling the spin, speech and publication of the written word, which is to say that political correctness has often been molded to become synonymous to that which becomes taught and allowed as "the truth". Remember, it was Pontius Pilot who asked a question that ever echoes down through the pages of history. Pilot asked of Jesus, "what is truth"?

 

The importance of this quest for truth and understanding is well amplified by the words of Scripture, which states, "prove all things, hold fast that which is true.” And in another place, God caused to be recorded, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge." So in this regard, the philosophy of men like Tyndale was quite accurate, as they sought to promote the idea of translating the words of God from the original Greek of John’s Ephesus Scriptorium into the language of the people. The Old Testament had long before been translated from Hebrew into Greek, but the New Testament of that time had traveled the centuries via the Latin language. Even the earlier English translations of John Wycliffe in the 14th century came from the Latin Vulgate text.

 

Erasmus was an ordained priest of Catholic Rome. As already stated, his motives for providing translations other than the Latin Vulgate were not in opposition to the Roman church, but simply that he realized the Vulgate to be inferior to the depth of perfection conveyed via the original Greek text. Part of it was that he was just another accomplished scholar striving to make his mark. But, in doing so, he promoted the idea of using the original Greek text, which, in his time, had become more abundantly available, when scribes fled to Europe at the conquest of Constantinople by the Turks in 1453 AD.

 

At the beginning of the Renaissance period, the world had long been under a dark cloud of ignorance, brought about by the ruling hierarchy of the Catholic clergy and the civil power of Rome. These two powers had been common bedfellows since the initial coup in the days of Constantine, 312/13 AD. The result becomes obvious. A top down, corporate rule of government will always result in the suppression of truth and knowledge, both in the world, but also, even in the very church of God.

 

All that came after the fourth century AD, in the history of what became known as mainstream Christianity, both Catholic and Protestant, is merely an extension of the philosophy of Rome from those early times. It is just that simple and just that complicated.

 

The Protestants of the Reformation, aided by men like Knox, Calvin and Luther, began the movement away from the college of the pontiffs, but the effort stopped very short of coming completely out of the Roman dogma. Many of the current day theologians of prominence are mere avatars of the original empire, which liturgy was set in form more than 1,700 years ago. Protestants receive great respect from their throngs of following, but the fact is, the apple never falls very far from the tree. They yet preach and publish the ideology of mother Rome, of which little is Biblically based.

 

This culture of Roman thought has continued, through ignorance and tradition. Despite the abundance of God’s word in print, Truth remains much covered by the Lie of Sin and Death. Modern day avatars of the ancient college of pontiffs enjoy a vast audience of followers, with teachings embedded in the traditions of men, but having little to offer from the word of God. This is despite the fact that the Scriptures have long since been published in English and other languages. The water of the word, God has well provided, but according to the age old statement, "a horse can be led to water, but none can make it drink".

 

To be fair though, God, by that original effort of men like Erasmus and Tyndale, has well published His written word. But, the final and most important ingredient comes only from God Himself. That is, one must first have the words of His Book, which specifies the terms of covenant. But, as Jesus stated, "No man can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him.” (Jn. 6:44) Therefore, the process has multiple steps and layers, according to the will of God. One may have a book to read, but the lens of the Holy Spirit must bring the print into the focus of understanding. 

 

Nonetheless, the mass publication of the Bible in printed form began to fulfill the prophetic words of Jesus (Mt. 24:14) and has made possible the teaching and encouragement of the remnant flock of those called by God the Father in the ages since. "You shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free," Jesus said. But scholarship, education and publication also have their parts to accomplish.

 

In that light, we must conclude that men like Erasmus and Tyndale were used by God for His very purpose, that those whom God calls might have readily at hand His written word of truth. In short, without a printed Bible in a language to be understood, repentance, growth and overcoming would be very difficult.   

 

In past ages, when men begin to realize how far they had fallen from the word of God, following repentance the path of return, without exception, was always by the avenue of the fourth commandment of the Sabbath day and the Passover. These were and are the foundational points of anchor for both Old and New Testament times. From these sign posts of observance, one begins to understand salvation and the plan of God - truths not so easily grasped during the dark ages of Rome’s suppression of knowledge, before the times of education through mass printing.

 

It should then be no great surprise that in a dramatic turning away from the true worship of God in the early centuries AD, the first commands of God to be effectively abolished by Rome were the weekly Sabbath and Passover. To be sure there were other important doctrines that came under attack, but once the fourth commandment and Passover were swept under the carpet by the edicts of men, it was only a matter of time before lesser cornerstones of Scriptural teachings also fell by the wayside. Remember, we earlier said that among those things controlled by the Roman Pontifex of the religions of Baal, was the calendar. By this authority, then, the dates of religious worship, such as Passover, Sabbath and/or Sunday worship, and Easter, could be mixed and manipulated. In the end result, the Appointed Times of God were dismissed, with relics of the Occult religions substituted in their place.

 

Rejection of the seventh-day Sabbath and the 14th Passover has always been linked to the acceptance of the ancient traditions of Baal worship. To amplify the point, the Celtic church of England, among those professing the accepted Christianity of the times, was last to reject the doctrine of the 14th Passover of Jesus Christ.

 

The year was 664 AD, at the Council of Whitby. Upon recognizing the rites of Easter and the equinox, in lieu of Passover, in that very same year was adopted the doctrine of tonsure, a Sun symbol from the age old rituals of the pontiff college of Baal worship, direct from the downtown window dressing of Rome.

 

 

In the seventh century the churches of England took direction from the House of Iona, from the isle of Scotland. They had not yet totally succumbed to the authority of Rome. This short quote from historical archives describes the events of that period.

 

"When, in due course, the Celtic and Roman missionaries came into contact, a controversy arose regarding the diversity of certain practices of the two churches: the tonsure, the celibacy of the clergy, and notably the date for the observance of Easter. In 463, Rome and the Continental churches had adopted a new method of calculating Easter Day, but the Celtic Churches in North Ireland and Scotland and the ancient British Church retained the old computation, which they believed to have been derived from the East, from the APOSTLE JOHN HIMSELF! In 664, a counsel met at Whitby to settle these differences, and the king, who had hitherto favored the Celtic Church observances, declared in favor of the Roman custom".

 

An expanded account of the Whitby Council dialogue and debate can be found in historical archives and is worth reading. The conclusion to disband the observance of the Passover, adopting Easter instead, was done with a grade school level of mentality. The decision was not based upon scholarship and research, but on the emotion and whim of the moment, pretty much like religious and political decisions are still made in our current age.

 

There is an interesting coincidence to the Passover/Easter controversy. Before 664 AD the Celtic churches, under the leadership of the bishops of Iona (Scotland), had maintained observance of the 14th Passover. About 500 years previous to the Council of Whitby the same controversy arose between Rome and the region of Iona in Asia Minor. That is, Ephesus, the anchor stone of the early church, was in ancient times called, Iona. And, it was from that region that an objection of Easter observance was raised by the generations of the disciples of the apostle John.

 

Down through history, the Passover and Sabbath-keeping have traveled together as a matched set, while the opposing forces have been all too predictable. That is, the bedfellows of opposition are always going to be Easter and Sunday worship.

 

But akin to the current day echoes of political rhetoric, as is always the case with questions of religious doctrine, one will surely ask, "at this point, what difference does it make"? The answer is if there is no God it makes no difference whatsoever. It is just that simple and just that complicated. First was the tree of life and Truth, but then came the Lie and Death, by the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Mixing the fruit of one with the other will always result in a basket polluted.

 

Therefore, more than 4,000 years past the events of the Garden of Eden, from the days of Constantine until the times of Erasmus and Tyndale, a thick curtain of ignorance effectively blocked and clouded the light of truth. Because of suppression, lack of literacy and the broad publication and distribution of the Biblical text, truth was very, very difficult to come by. The Lie of church government, coupled with civil force, had free reign over men, with few to oppose.

 

Pertaining to the time of the Reformation and the removal of the dark veil of Rome, it was recorded in the book, "Renaissance and Reformation," that a mentor of Erasmus, Cornelius Rogers, had great influence over his destiny. Rogers, it is said, convinced Erasmus that through education and scholarship, Jesus Christ could best be served. Though Erasmus remained a Catholic, he must have listened to the advice of Rogers, as witnessed by his life’s work thereafter.

 

The Catholic priest scholar William Tyndale was educated at Oxford, then finally at Cambridge, where Erasmus was a professor. It was largely from the inspiration of Erasmus that Tyndale was moved to perfect his knowledge of the Greek language and Biblical text of same. Later, John Rogers of England, a Catholic priest had split with the Church of Rome. He fled to Antwerp, where he became acquainted with William Tyndale, who was also self-exiled to the same city.

 

Before his capture and execution, Tyndale left some of his unpublished manuscripts of Bible translations with Rogers, which later became the very text that Henry VIII published. Curiously, John Rogers was of the same family name as Margret Rogers, mother of Erasmus.

 

It was largely by the works of Tyndale that Rogers came to reject the doctrine of the Roman church. Rogers, who had assisted Tyndale in the printing and distribution of a Bible in English, returned to England, and was later, by the court of Mary Tudor, burned at the stake in 1555 AD. Mary, the daughter of Henry VIII, was much influenced by her Catholic mother, Catherine of Aragon. Though Catherine surely did not deserve the treatment received from her husband, Henry VIII, she was a devout follower of the Roman ideology.

 

In any case, history has left us with evidence of the historical linkage between the nobility of the Meredith Tudor lineage of Wales and England and that of the influence of the scholarship of Holland’s Erasmus and England’s Tyndale. Bridging this gap of connection were also the families of Rogers, Gerrard (aka, Garret), Williams and Cromwell. Holland (the Netherlands) especially contributed to the translation of the Bible and the religious freedom that the English speaking peoples have long enjoyed.

 

It was early in the 17th century when the Spanish Catholics who controlled the Netherlands grew weary of trying to put down the Calvinist rebellion. A temporary truce was declared, which allowed the Anabaptists, English Separatists and others to seek refuge and congregate at Leiden, Holland. They had been persecuted by the Church of England, Catholics and other Protestants, so the temporary haven of safety at Leiden found the weary pilgrims seeking refuge there in Holland. But with the truce set to expire in January, 1621, arrangements were made and a shipload of passengers from that conclave boarded the Speedwell out of Delft Haven. After a brief stop in England, many of them transferred to the Mayflower and set voyage to the Americas in September, 1620.

After arriving in the Americas in November of 1620 and skirting the shoreline for several months during the winter, the Separatists finally off-boarded the Mayflower and established a colony at Plymouth, around the week of Passover, 1621. The timing of the arrival of the Separatists was a modern day version of Israel entering the land of promise, more than 3,000 years before.   

 

Almost a century before, aided by the invention of the Gutenberg printing press, Luther used this printing technology to widely publish his 95 Theses, nailing his document to the church door in October, 1517. The influence of these few people stretched from Paris, Saxony, Delft Haven and Belgium, then to Britain and Wales. Eventually, as the Reformation grew, this influence came with the Pilgrims to Plymouth Rock, and within decades forged a beach head for religious freedom at Providence Plantation, under the leadership of Rhode Island’s Roger Williams. The Williams family stemmed from Wales. Several of the early Separatist preachers were of Welsh descent, and it was the Welshman Captain Christopher Jones who piloted the Mayflower to America.

 

In less than a century, dating from Tyndale’s publication of the a Bible in English to the 1526, to the small colony of Plymouth Rock, a mere handful of people had, by the power of language, scholarship and printing, literally changed the landscape of world history. With the exception of, perhaps, William Tyndale, few of them understood much of the deeper truths of God, but now at least they had the written word in their native tongue, a foundational stone from which to build upon. Tyndale’s first publication of the English Bible was later followed by the Geneva Bible and eventually the King James Version of 1611. This was the age of the Tudor monarchs, and in their era the English Bible began to fill the households of England and was brought to the Americas in the 17th century.

 

But, now, in the closing years of the 44th president of these United States, we are 500 years downstream of the times of Tyndale, Erasmus and the Tudors. Freedom of religion in the United States is under siege as it has never been before in modern times. In symbol, the Spanish Armada from the Jesuit stronghold of Francis I, to the south of Manasseh, has come again. This time, not with the armada of ships and guns, but aided by enemies in our very midst, who have incited and enabled the overflow of our southern border of these United States with a flood of drugs, disease and masses of humanity, pouring in by the millions.

 

The political climate of the United States is a sick sea of corruption, and so far no political party has had the moral fiber or backbone to stop the incoming throng of immigrants flowing illegally into our nation. Indeed, by their inaction they have enabled the demise. To be fair, this is not a fault or blame that can be attributed directly to the immigrants themselves. So long as she stands, who wouldn’t want to migrate to the United States?

 

Indeed, the borders of many nations the world over are crumbling, especially those countries which have long been the colonies and allies of the modern nations of Ephraim and Manasseh. The walls of western security, wealth and stability are, little by little, being broken down. The modern Israelite nations, by historical identity, are under siege. The United States is among them and her days are numbered.

 

 

Because men soon forget the past, the cycles of history, like waves of the sea, shall always come again. The spirit of Elizabeth I is dead. The scholarship of free speech and journalism is under attack. The times of religious freedom are fast fading away. The day Bloody Mary comes again. According to the age old adage, "the Lord gives and the Lord takes away."

 

 

Dividing the Word of Truth, John 17:17

(From 17 to 17)

 

We do not know the exact date, but it seems certain that it was within the two-year span of 66 to 68 AD when Paul wrote his last epistle to Timothy.

 

Paramount in his thoughts and concerns was the preservation of truth and sound doctrine. This, with a pen of urgency, he conveyed to Timothy, in II Timothy 2:15, a summation of 2 + 15 = 17. “Be diligent,” Paul wrote; a worker approved of God, rightly dividing the Word of Truth (the 17/17, equal divisions of 34).

 

During those very years, when Paul wrote his last words to Timothy, Florus had demanded 17 talents from the temple treasury at Jerusalem. This inflamed the Zealots, leading to a temporary but successful rebellion against Roman control. Within the year, Nero sent 60,000 troops south to confront Judea, and the game of war was on.

 

It was against this backdrop of time that Paul, knowing his death was near, wrote to Timothy, concerning the necessity of maintaining the word of God of sound doctrine, and rightly dividing the truth from the lie.

 

This concept of the clash between the lies of the world and the truth of God becomes a direct statement, drawn from the Word Himself, 17:17. This, we find in the fourth gospel account, the gospel according to John, chapter 17. This is the storyline of the ministry of Jesus, from the seventh month and 10th day (= 17) of Atonement, 26 AD, until the 17th of Nisan, 30 AD - from 17 unto 17.

 

Such things are a shadow of the number of covenant, the seven. The Word of truth, the 17:17, a summation of 17 + 17 = 34 = 3 + 4 = seven, was cut off in the middle of the seven-day week, on day four, Wednesday, in His 34th year of life (17:17 = 34 = 7). A covenant requires the sacrifice of blood, without which, according to law, there can be no remission of sin.

 

Satan, the dragon and counterfeit, with seven heads and 10 horns (= 17) had introduced the lie to Adam and Eve. He was the father of the lie, thereby bringing in the necessity of the restoration of truth and payment for sin. This was accomplished by the symbolic division, the cutting off (sacrifice) of the Lamb, the Word of God. Therefore, the Lamb, the Word of truth, without fault or blemish, as the sin offering, was divided into two parts - His body and His blood, symbolized by the bread and the wine of the 14th Passover. 

 

I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, Jesus said. These concepts were much in Jesus’ mind, as the hour of His sacrifice drew near. He was and is the Light (Way), and on the day of the Passover, Wednesday, the double number of covenant (7), Nisan 14, He, as the Word and Truth (17:17), spoke the words of the covenant on the eve of His crucifixion.

 

"He was the Word of life," John would later write in his first epistle to the church. And, in the gospel of John, chapter 1, he wrote of Jesus, the Word of truth, "the Word (17:17) was with God, and the Word was God. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men (I Jn. 1:4).”

 

But, during the night of the Passover of 30 AD, Jesus spoke the Words of covenant to His disciples. Later that same night He was betrayed. Then ensued the events of the oncoming day portion of Passover when He would be “cut off” and symbolically divided (sacrificed), becoming the bread and wine, the body and blood of life. This, in fulfillment of Daniel 9:26.

 

In the gospel account Jesus said, “Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you!” Hence, Jesus embodied three distinct parts-the Way, the Truth and the Life, with the Truth, rightly divided (the 17:17) standing in the midst. He was divided (sacrificed) on the 14th, then, after three days and three nights, He emerged from the tomb, whole and eternal, at the close of the Sabbath, Nisan 17.

 

Jesus Christ was the Pillar of fire and light, the Guide and Way for ancient Israel, as He led them out of Egypt by night. He was the Word of Truth, Who spoke the words of covenant at Mount Sinai. He was the Life, the Manna which fed Israel from heaven. Now, as High Priest, He continues to be the Way, the Truth and the Life for spiritual Israel, children of faith through Abraham. 

 

The preservation of doctrine and teachings, by the Word of God (Jesus Christ), as the early apostles came to the end of life, was paramount; to be guarded and defended. "I charge you,” Paul wrote to Timothy (II Tim. 4:1), "before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, preach the 17:17,” (the Word). For, "they will turn their ears away from the 17:17 (Truth), and be turned aside to fables." 

 

Once the age of these early apostles had passed, their disciples of Asia Minor continued to contend for the faith once delivered. But they had little success, because by the time of Constantine and the early Catholic Church, a coup of subjugation came like a flood, and the foundation of doctrine once laid by the early apostles was swept away.

 

Yet, according to the words of Jesus, a remnant survived and continues to the present age. "They (the remnant) are not of this world, just as I am not of the world," Jesus said.

 

 

By the analogy of pattern, Joseph, when he was 17, was sold into the sin and bondage of Egypt. Then Jesus, when He was twice the age of Joseph, in His 34th year, was sold for 30 pieces of silver, and the Word became sin (17) and Truth became sin (17), that for the price of blood He might taste death and the wages of sin for every man. It pleased God to bruise Him. He was wounded for our transgressions, knocking down the division of the middle wall and separation of sin, when the temple veil was divided in two.

 

And in a pattern type of Daniel’s prophecy, by the fourth gospel account, the gospel of John, 17th chapter, 17th verse = (4) + (17) + (17) = 4 + 34 = 434, Messiah, after 62 weeks (434 years) was divided (cut off, sacrificed). Once Jesus had spoken the words of this chapter (John 17), soon came His hour of betrayal, on the heels of which Jesus was “cut off” after 60 and two weeks, by the division of His blood and body, the wine and bread of Passover. This was on day four, Wednesday, at the division of the week, Nisan 14, in the seventh month of the civil year progression of the lunar calendar, in the ninth year of the 19-year cycle.   

 

But by two immutable things in which God cannot lie, according to the words of Paul in the book of Hebrews, by a promise and an oath, Jesus, on the 17th of Nisan, became our immortal, High Priest forever, after the order of Melchizedek.

 

"Sanctify them by Your truth," Jesus asked of His Father (Jn. 17:17). That is, set them apart from the world. This "setting apart," more so than just about any other outward worship of God, is accomplished when, in truth, God is worshiped by and through the seven annual Sabbaths of the lunar cycles.

 

In the days when the temple stood, the calendar court of the Seat of Moses "sanctified” (set apart) that all-important day of the lunar year, which more than any other determines God’s times of worship. That day of calendar truth, which sets apart the only first day of any month that is an annual Sabbath, is always declared immediately at the close of the 177th day of the sacred year. This annual Sabbath is Tishri 1, the first day of the seventh sacred month.

 

Therefore, that day of annual truth in time-keeping occurs after the 177-day span of Nisan through the 6th month, Elul. This 177-day span is then succeeded by 1/7, the first day of the seventh sacred month. Read either way, this number combination of truth is 17771, a sum of 23, and, an obvious form of the numbers 17:17.  And, that day of 17771 is for all time codified at the sum of its digits, 23. This, in the Scriptures at Leviticus 23:23, the day of Trumpets.

 

Now, the most common type of lunar year is the 354-day average, 12-month year. It was in such a year that Jesus was crucified, just hours after His statement in John 17:17. Jesus would have been 34 at Tishri 1 of that year, the year in which He was "cut off" (figuratively divided = 34/2 = 17:17). In a line graph, such a year of 354 days is an equal division of 177/177. Therefore, the equal division of truth falls at Nisan 1, the half of a full year, seventh month to seventh month, a point falling at the first day of the seventh civil month (Nisan), the same as the first day of the seventh sacred month (Tishri) = 1/7-1/7 = 17:17. In a 354 day lunar year, for both months, the first day of each month falls at the end of day 177, counting from either end of the annual circle. Jesus was entombed at the 14/15th day transition, dividing the 30 day month, Nisan.

 All this becomes quite vivid in the following graph:

 

 

"Set apart," (34 Divided) John 17:17

 

ß-----------177 days--------àß--------177 days--------à

ß------------Nisan---------(15/15)--------Divided--------à

ß------------------------à354 daysß----------------------à

29 AD-----------------resurrected 1/17----------------30 AD

 

 

But by a promise and an oath (Gen. 15 & 22) of sacrifice, God gave inheritance to the father and children of faithful Abraham. And the one who became Jesus Christ walked between the divided pieces of Word and Truth in the event of Genesis 15. Then, the angel of God tangled the ram of sacrifice in the thicket, so that Isaac, the Seed of promise, might be spared, in the day when God gave His oath of blessing (Gen. 22:17).  

 

But Paul, in the late 60’s AD, surely recalling the words of Jesus, wrote to Timothy, urging him to guard and preserve the doctrine of the word of God, teaching all disciples of Jesus, by "rightly dividing the Word of truth." (II Tim. 2:15) This was reflecting back to the night in which Jesus was betrayed, when He spoke that profound and immortal phrase of God the Father and Himself, combining in one a definition of synonymous parts, which by two things is immutable, "Your Word is Truth.” (Jn. 17:17).

 

                     

Seven, the Sign and Seal of God

 

Seven, the bedrock symbol, the covenant sign and seal, ever used by God, from Genesis to Revelation, is the foundation and codex of the Appointed Times of the gospel accounts. These Times, given to Moses and Aaron, were formalized in Leviticus 23. Through His Appointed Times (feasts) God reveals the mystery of His plan of salvation in the patterns of the seventh day Sabbath, the 14th Passover, and the seven annual festivals of the calculated Hebrew calendar. These Appointed Times span the 207-day period of the seven months of harvest.

 

And, in these Appointed festivals, is always the music of the Psalms, in which were closed, shut and sealed some of the most profound notes of prophecy ever to be written. Many of these psalms were composed and played by the harper David.

 

Then, almost a thousand years after the age of Psalms began, many of the mysteries of the lyrical words were opened by the life, ministry and revelation of Jesus Christ. Jesus, from the root and stem of Jesse, became the symbolic David, warrior of battle, composer, conductor, psalmist and harper of the last New Testament book, Revelation. 

 

While these festivals and Appointed Times of God are indeed encoded in the law and statues given to mankind for all time, they were never intended to be a measure of burden or unwanted obligation, but as times of joy, enlightenment and worship.

 

These annual festivals of God portray in a cyclical, almost musical fashion, the entire panorama - the outline shadow of His plans for mankind. How fitting, the psalmist wrote of these Appointed Times in the octave Psalm, eight-one (81), “Make a joyful shout to the God of Jacob. Raise a song and strike the timbrel, the pleasant harp and the lute,” (Ps. 81:1-2).

 

In reading the pages of this book, whether a student of music appreciation, an accomplished harper, or player of other musical instruments, for those who enjoy the tones of the musical scale, Biblical prophecy, and/or the science and physics of God’s creation itself, it is our hope that you will discover a view and appreciation of God’s handiwork never before perceived - a view that is vividly portrayed in the music of The Appointed Times.

 

 

The Sevens of the Weekly Cycle

 

“And when he (the angel) had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.”(Rev. 8:1, the octave). Every seasoned speaker knows that one of the best ways to make a point, getting the attention of the audience, is a sudden, unexpected pause. So, here, at Revelation 8:1, comes a mysterious and foreboding silence.

 

This is a profound transition in the unfolding of the plan of God. Here, in Revelation 8:1, at the seventh seal, we come to the crescendo, the finale of a long running symphonic performance -the closing chapters of the Biblical story.

 

At this octave interval of Revelation, everything written, from Genesis to Revelation, is about to come full course. Nothing like it has ever happened before in the history of man. This is the conclusion of the matter, ending with the events of the Appointed Time of 7/22 and the second resurrection of Revelation 20:5. Then, in the final verses of this 49th book of the Bible, the story moves forward with a glimpse into eternity.

 

So important is this moment in time that the heavens pause, thundering with the silence of expectation. Planet earth and the entire universe stand in awe at the opening of the seventh seal. The Progenitor and Offspring of the harper king and prophet, David, Jesus Christ, stands to conduct the last measures of the line and staff of the aria of the Bible. 

 

On God’s clock of time (Rev. 8:1), a half hour equals two quadrants of 270 lunar parts (1800 seconds, 180 degrees, or 540 lunar parts). In a symbolic sense, this is the new and full moon festivals of Psalm 81, a cornerstone Psalm of lunar calculation.

 

It continues, “And I (John) saw seven angels stand before God, and to them were given seven trumpets. So, the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.” (Rev. 8:6)

 

“But, in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery (riddle, or dark saying) of God would be finished.” That is, the final act or completion of the mystery would finally be opened and disclosed (Rev. 10:7 & Ps. 49:4), coming to full pitch at the seventh trump of the seventh seal.

 

How is this mystery opened and disclosed? As incredible and simplistic as it may sound, it is opened by the sevens imagery of the repeating octaves of the harp. It is not opened or revealed by the voice of the strings, of course, but by the pattern and operation of the prophetic sevens, upon which principle the harp, music, covenants, oaths, and the Appointed Times of the New Testament and Leviticus 23 have been based. The book of light, opening and disclosing riddles of mystery, is the last book of the New Testament, Revelation, a book outlined by the pattern of seven.

 

In the Scriptures, when we read of opening, closing, sealing and revealing, or setting apart by special sign of affirmation, virtually without exception the context will include the number seven, by single course of 6 + 1, or by multiples and/or divisions of the same.

 

Thus the plan of salvation, as amplified by the finale of Revelation, becomes a mystery, unveiled, opened and disclosed, precisely as the psalmist stated (Ps. 49:4 & Ps. 78:2).

 

Now, Jesus fulfilled Psalm 78:2 in His discourse of the seven kingdom parables of Matthew 13 - a kingdom and nation, to be born, instantaneously, at the time setting of the blast of the seventh trump. Speaking of that day, and announced through His ministry, “I will open My mouth in parables,” Jesus said. “I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world!” (Mt. 13:35)

 

The apostle Paul understood this concept, saying in 1 Cor. 15:51, “Behold, I tell you a mystery,” as he explains and reveals the mystery of the first resurrection and the last, or seventh trump.

 

Later, near the close of the first century AD, John, in a vision, sees an event pertaining to this same “mystery,” at the very point when the voices of the seven thunders are sealed (Rev. 10:4).

 

Now, “the angel which I (John) saw stand upon the sea, and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, And sevened (swore) by Him that lives for ever and ever….that there should be no more delay” (Rev. 10:5-6 & Dan. 12:7).…“but in the days when the seventh angel is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished.” (Rev. 10:7 + Dan. 12:7).

 

 

 

So, this announcement by the angel occurs at a time and event so profound as to be prefaced by an oath (a seven), a sign and surety from the very God, Himself.

 

In this book, number 27 of the New Testament (Revelation), just as the word apocalypse or revelation implies, the unveiling is accomplished by the sevens, and this is where the story ends and this is where the story begins.

 

Virtually all of scripture, from Genesis to Revelation, has been overlaid, outlined and sketched by the threaded patterns of the sevens, a melody line fading in and out, surfacing at different times as the Biblical story progresses, building to a tidal wave, grand climax in the finale of the Book of Revelation - a preview, written over 1900 years ago, describing the landscape of our future, in the years and decades to come.

PERIODS AND CYCLES OF

THE HEBREW CALENDAR

 

(What they are and what they are not)

 

Many of us who observe the Appointed Times of the calculated Hebrew Calendar speak of the phrase "time cycles." Most understand that these cycles have something to do with a solar span of 19 years or 235 lunar months.

 

However, while these 19-year time cycles are periods of time, not all periods of 19 years are a time cycle, with respect to the Hebrew calendar criteria. In fact, 19-year periods of time are only cycles 1/19th of the time. How is this so and what is the explanation and clarification of this issue?

 

Also, what is being referred to by the phrase "a 247-year cycle?" And what is the difference between “cycles” and “periods of time” when both span the same number of years?

 

First, let’s address this mysterious cycle of 247 years. A 247-year cycle is merely a multiple of the 19-year Metonic cycle. That is, 247 years is a span of 13 x 19 Metonic cycles. Therefore, the end of a 247-year cycle is also the end of a 19-year cycle, but in the case of 247 years, this is the end of the 13th cycle of 19 years, a period of 3,055 months. We know this to be so, since in 19 years there are 235 months, so 13 x 235 months = 3055 lunar months of about 29.53 days each.

 

We have said that while all cycles are periods of time, not all periods of time are cycles of the Hebrew calendar. For instance, if we count from year three of one cycle to year three of the next, that is a 19-year period, but it is not a 19-year cycle of the calculated Hebrew calendar. Periods can start at any year of the 19-year cycle, extending to the same point in the successive cycle, or the time may be counted in reverse to the previous cycle or period from any point of beginning. That is the definition of a 19-year period, which is different from a "cycle" of the Metonic.

 

A "cycle" of the lunar calendar must always begin with year one and end at year one of the next cycle. For instance, year one of the current 19-year Metonic cycle began with the day of Trumpets, in the fall of 1997. Year one of the next Metonic, then, begins at Tishri 1, 2016.

 

Cycles and periods of 19 years, by this measure, will most of the time have either 6939, 6940, 6941 or 6942 days, but not always. There is one exception. How is this so?

 

Again, the mathematics of the Hebrew calendar declarations for the number days in a 19-year Metonic cycle yield a variable span of 6939, 6940, 6941 or 6942 days in length. These four lengths of time amount to 235 months (always) for every Metonic cycle of 19 years.

 

But here is the exception and difference between periods and cycles. While all cycles of 19 years, by number of days, must have one of the four lengths mentioned, a 19-year period of time, which is not a cycle, may have a length of 6,938 days. No 19-year cycle may have a length that is less than 6939 days. This is a multiple of 991 weeks plus two days, a form of 9 + 9 + 1 = 19, plus 2/7ths.

 

Therefore, cycles will always have one of four possible spans of time, by length of days, while periods may have an additional length of 6,938 days, which allows that periods may have five possible values of days for a 235-month time span, ranging from 6,938 to 6,942 days.

 

An important point to consider is this. Since no length of time from 6,938 to 6,942 is an exact multiple of sevens, it is then evident that no two consecutive 19-year cycles or periods can begin on the same day of the week.

 

However, there is a span or multiple of 19-year time cycles and periods that DOES produce the same lunar date on the very same day of the week. This is something unique and it will occur 98% of the time at 13 cycles of 19 years, and this how we come by the phrase, "a 247-year cycle." It is a cycle which produces the same lunar date on the same day of the week, missing only 2% of the time, for any given date of the lunar calendar, and this principle works for either a 247-year cycle or a 247-year period of time. For that matter, it works for any date of the lunar year, as compared to the same lunar date 247 years before, or 247 years later.

 

We know that the position of the sun and moon misses a precise convergence of roughly 2 hours at every interval of lunar dates that are separated by 19 years, or 235 months. But, at the 13th multiple of 19 years (247 years), based on the 29.53 day multiples of the mean lunar cycle, the moon’s molad time is only about 50 minutes short of the very same time, as compared to 247 years previous.

 

This is an average, or molad to molad comparison, which would be different than the actual instantaneous astronomical position of the moon. In the finite detail of Hebrew calendar-speak, the sages state this difference in molad times per 247-year cycles or periods, as 905 parts, or about 50.28 minutes. Again, this would be on the same date and day of the week, as compared to the lunar calendar 247 years after or before any given date. This 905-part shortfall is based upon the fact that each part = 3.33 seconds, or 18 parts per minute. Thus, 905 parts is about 50.28 minutes. 

 

So close is this merger of the lunar cycle with the very same day of the week, at 247-year intervals, that calendar sages of old sometimes thought this to be the actual cycle of the

 

Hebrew calendar. But later authorities of the calendar came to understand that the full cycle is actually a circle of time that is 689,472 years.

 

Now, at every interval of 235 months the sun and moon converge to within about 2 hours of the same astronomical position as compared to 19 years before. However, unlike the 247-year periods, this 19-year span of lunar-solar coincidence does not occur on the same day of the week, compared to 19 years previous. Therefore, this relationship of lunar-solar time and the days of the weekly cycle is the exception and unique difference between the 19 and 247-year cycles and periods. A 19-year cycle or period is based upon the approximate convergence of the sun and moon, whereas the 247-year cycles or periods are a molad to molad comparison of the mean or average lunar cycle of 29.53 days.

 

Hence, though one or any multiple of 235-month spans will always equate to the common denominator of 19 years, only one multiple, the 13th, falls on the very same day of the weekly cycle 98% of the time at 247-year intervals. This happens because a 247-year lunar period or cycle is very close to an exact multiple of the seven-day weekly cycle, as can be demonstrated by the fact that in 247 years there are 3055 months x 29.5305941 days = 90,215.964 days = 12887.994 weeks. And rounded off to the nearest whole, 98% of the time we have 12,888 weeks in any 247-year mathematical period of time. The factional number 12887.994 then accounts for the fact that the date/weekday time lock occurs 2% short of perfection. Note that 12,888 weeks (1+2+8+8+8) sums to 27 the number of the last book of the New Testament, Revelation, which was conveyed by the 24-letter Greek text, which book throughout is formed upon the patterns of the number seven. Thus, the combination 24/7.

 

In the key of C, this 247 hertz, B note, by analogy of the seven leap years of the Metonic, falls at the seventh and last church, Laodicea. The 98% percent occurrence of this alignment of lunar time and the seven-day week, sums to 9 + 8 = 17, the seven heads and ten horns of the dragon, in the context of Revelation and the seventh church, Laodicea, at the end of days. A curious point is that, by this analogy, Ephesus was the key of C, first church, and in Asia Minor that city lies in the old region of Iona, from which, by the Greek of musical modes, comes the C major modal scale, the Ionian!

 

The same lunar date, falling on the same day of the week, is unique to the 247-year spans, and that is why we sometimes hear the phrase, "a 247-year cycle." That is, it is a cycle of the moon that converges, or becomes conjunctive with the seven-day week at a predictable interval of the Hebrew calendar. Hence, here we have exact cycles or multiples of the seven-day week, which does not occur for any other notable frequency of the 19-year Metonic periods or cycles. Therefore, a 19-year period or cycle is a sun/moon conjunction, whereas a 247-year period or cycle is a sun/moon/day of the week conjunction, which happens 98% of the time for all dates of the lunar calendar at 247-year intervals. 

 

So, this becomes very much a notation of the days of the week, as much as it is a measure of the lunar cycle. Again, this relationship of 19 years to the seven-day week can never occur in one span of the 235-month, 19-year Metonic cycle, seeing the number of days is not equally divisible by seven.

 

By example, here is how the day of the week and lunar periods occur. If we check the weekday of Tishri 1 for the current Metonic cycle, which began in 1997, we will see that the day of Trumpets falls on Thursday. The previous 247-year cycle fell on the year 1750, and in that year the day of Trumpets also fell on Thursday. Moving forward in time from 1997, by 247 years, we come to the year 2244, and a weekday check of that year for Tishri 1 also finds Tishri 1 being declared on Thursday. Again, these 247-year comparisons will fall on the same day of the week 98% of the time, missing only about 20 times in 1,000 years, or, on average, 4.94 times for a 247-year period.

 

A curious side note to all of this is that 4.94 is the octave or double of 2.47, and seeing that the 247-year cycles are coincident with the seven-day week, it is also curiously amazing that the seventh leap year of every Hebrew calendar 19-year cycle is the equivalent, in the key of C, to the seventh note of the musical scale, which just happens to be the note B at 247 hertz!

 

The mathematics of the Tishri 1 declarations for any year within the 19-year Metonic are often modified by the four rules of postponement, adjusting the lunar date by one to two days. This can happen at random, according to calendar rules, for any number of years, averaging that a correction or postponement will take place 61% of the time for all dates of the day of Trumpets. Likewise, as a spin-off product of postponements, 61 different patterns are generated for the outlay of years, by number of days, within the Metonic cycles.

 

That is, we know that lunar years can have 353, 354, 355, 383, 384 and 385 days. Now, as to how many of each type of year, by length of days, and in what sequence of pattern they may alternate and occur, there are 61 different patterns of possibility, partly as a result of the 61% of all years that are modified by postponement rules.

 

Last, these postponements or adjustments occur according to set mathematical rules of the time of day and day of the week. Postponements or adjustments are not locked to an occurrence, by any measure of pattern or importance, to any particular length of time - not 19, 13, 27, 7, and, not even at intervals of 247 years. Postponements occur when they occur. They are driven by mathematics, with no special, out of the ordinary reference to the end, middle, or beginning of any Metonic cycle, or multiples thereof.

 

These one or two-day adjustments at Tishri 1 occur by the 29.53- day mathematics and the four rules of postponement. They are enacted 61% of the time, in a possible array or arrangement of 61 different patterns, during the 36,288 cycles of the 19-year spans of the 689,472 years - the full Hebrew calendar cycle.

 

Always remember that while all cycles are periods of time, all periods of time are not cycles. With respect to the Hebrew calendar calculations and leap year patterns, cycles are always spans of 19 years, or multiples thereof, marked with a beginning point of year one of the Metonic cycle.

 

But at every interval of 247 years, four divisions or mark points of time merge to a close proximity. By analogy, this becomes a replication of the elements of time on the fourth day of the Genesis account. These four elements of time are 1) the day; 2) the week; 3) the month; and 4) the year, and they converge at 3,055-month intervals on the lunar-solar clock of time.

 

  

The Scale of Music and Lunar Calculations

 

Many students of the lunar calendar science long ago observed that the calendar and lunar dates of the seven festivals of the Appointed Times of the Biblical text, both Old and New Testament accounts, were calculated and written in the key of C major. The formula constants of both music and the lunar calculations are linked in similar ways to the mathematics of B, the seventh note in the key of C. And this is just the tip of the iceberg - the mere surface layer of a much deeper story. 

 

Without this knowledge of the B formula constant, Marconi, Reggie Fessenden, Edwin Armstrong, and other early physicists could not have fully developed the wireless age of communication, which basic principles still power our current, universal age of the cyber grids.

 

The sound of these principles of the modal sevens of music permeates the heavens and universe. “There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard,” (Ps. 19:3).

 

It is a fact of astronomical research that the lowest “voice” (note) ever detected, coming from the heavens, is a sub-harmonic of the musical note B flat - the precise number used by physicists of the late 19th and 20th centuries to calculate the traveling wavelength of magnetic, light and radio energy. That formula constant for wavelength calculations is about 495, but with earth’s mass and magnetic fields of influence, the constant is reduced to 468 hertz, which is B flat. For wavelengths calculated on earth, this 468 is the formula constant.

 

Now, the seventh note of the third octave, key of C, is the note B, at 247 hertz. And the double is what? The double, or next octave, is then 247 x 2 = 49:4, the Psalm where the mysterious riddle is said to open (by the sevens of the harp) - a mystery finally complete at the sound of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound (Rev. 10:7 = 17).

 

For almost 2,000 years, the thread of Daniel’s 70 weeks has been in intermission, following the “cutting off” of Messiah after the second segment of the three divisions of the 70 weeks (7 + 62 + 1 = 70). But now, by comparison to centuries past, we may be coming out of a prophetically dormant era, when the page is turned, and the long awaited finale of the symphony begins to sound. It seems that with the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, prophetic time stopped at mid-week of Daniel’s 70-week timeline. We have no sure way of knowing when the final segment of the week of Daniel’s 70 weeks will again become active, but the wise are always on the alert and watching.  

In our day, the symbolic seed of Haman is alive and well, and the entire world bites its nails, waiting for the fireworks of the Middle East to explode. Some journalists and historians have speculated the opening round of these explosions will occur near a place called the Straits of Hormuz in the region of the 27th parallel north, in the Persian gulf; or at other points, moving west on the 27th parallel, passing through the Suez Canal, Egypt, Libya. This line moves across the Atlantic, passing through our 27th state, Florida, and the troubled Gulf of Mexico - the region of our birthright blessings of the Louisiana Purchase of 1803.

 

Strange as it may sound, this 27th parallel, and other events which display the patterns of 27, 17, 7, etc., are always points to watch. Such number patterns appear to mark flashpoints of history, indicators of turmoil and road signs of world events to come. Now all this is, of course, mere speculation based on the Biblical patterns of the past, but global events bearing prophetic patterns are on the increase, as we come ever closer to the times of the prophetic, 70th week.

 

Near the end of year 2717 (dating from 718 BC), at the 11th cycle of the note B (= 247 x 11 = 2,717), a great historical event took place. It fell upon the prophetic numbers of Joseph, which is a known eclipse cycle of astronomy (2,717 years). In our day, this was the year of 2001, fourth year of the Metonic cycle, when on the 23rd day of Elul the shocking events of September 11, 2001 occurred.

 

In that week several sets of the 2/3 transitions occurred. These points of transition took place in the seven day period between Elul 23 and the Leviticus 23:23 introduction to Tishri 1, a day that immediately follows Elul 29. In the year of 9/11 Elul 23rd was declared on Tuesday (3), the day of transition from Monday (2). Tishri 1 (Trumpets), one week later was declared on Tuesday, the day of transition from Monday, Elul 29. So, the first day of the lunar year 2001 was a 2/3 transition. Again, Elul 23 of the 9/11 event came near the end of 2,717 years after the fall of ancient Israel, 718 BC.

 

The number 27/17, please recall, is the spiral graph transition point of the fourth octave of music, falling at the circular point of 2/3 (i.e. the notes BC, or Monday-Tuesday). The notes BC of the C major scale meet at this point of the octave transitions (2/3). The half-cycle of this 2-3 transition is 23/2 = 11.5, the very percentage of lunar time (11.5%) which finds both Elul 23 and Tishri 1 being declared on the weekday of Tuesday, seven days apart, as occurred in the year of the infamous day of 9/11.

 

Given all these mysterious parallels of the 7, 17, 2/3, 27/17 and 27 patterns, where was US president Bush at the precise hour when the two 110 story towers were struck? He was in our 27th state, Florida, at the physical location of Sarasota, a city having map co-ordinates through which passes the 27th parallel north, the New Testament book number of Revelation (27).

 

 

There are (were) seven buildings in the complex of the World Trade Center. Building two of seven fell first, then one of seven. Or, simply stated, they fell in the order, 2 of 7, then 1 of 7 (= 2717).

 

Building seven of the seven fell later the same day. The number 2,717 sums to 2 + 7 + 1 + 7 = 17, a combination of 10 and 7. True, this could all be mere coincidence and we shall likely never know the conclusion to these observations until some future time in history.

 

Both Joseph and his descendant Joshua lived to be the age of the stories of the twin towers, 110 years, which is the note A (1 of 7) of the diatonic scale. Like the twin towers, Joseph’s two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, stood as symbols of Jacob’s blessing and prosperity. Could all of this be just a symbolic coincidence? We have no way of knowing the finite answer to that, but nonetheless these are very curious facts to ponder.

 

Two years after 9/11, in 2003, at the Purim of Adar, shock and awe began to fall over the skies of Iraq, the old stomping grounds of ancient Babylon. The opening of that chapter is now behind us, but the storm clouds billow on the horizon, and the thunders still rumble in that region of the world, as if preparing for the next wave of activity in that troubled region. The Middle East, it seems, can never be still, but is a boiling pot, always ready to spill over. Few will disagree that the events of year 2717 and 9/11 opened a Pandora’s box of epic proportions, and one for which the lid shall never be closed until the end of the age.

 

So as the years have progressed, a turbulent world remains restless and unsettled on many fronts. The powder keg grows ever more unstable, waiting for some event that will ignite the long dreaded fuse of the final chapter, leading to the completion of Daniel’s week 70 and the subsequent countdown to the return of Jesus Christ.

 

In the 17th year of the Metonic (2013/14), under the leadership of the 44th president, the US punched through the 17 trillion debt ceiling, and the red ink of this tragedy continues to bleed out over the landscape of our inheritance. The fall of 2016 is the first year of a new Metonic cycle, which brings the end to yet another campaign and election of the next president of the United States.

 

Eventually, we will more fully understand just how this coming time and time of darkness will unfold its wings. For now, the precise details of how all of this will evolve remain a bit cloudy and unsorted, though the picture, day by day, is gradually expanding to the full focus of the unveiling of the mystery.

 

When the crescendo comes, as simple and unbelievable as it may sound, the entire panorama will be opened, orchestrated and performed by the same pattern symmetry of the plucked strings of harps - the courses of the repeating sevens of the octave, enjoined by the prophetic songs of David, the Revelation of Jesus Christ, and all the many generations of the faithful thereafter, down to the present day. The world powder keg awaits the explosion of the 27th and 49th book of Revelation.

 

Number Imagery of the Appointed Times

 

"Blow the trumpet,” states Psalm 81:3. “Raise a song (melody) and strike the timbrel, The pleasant harp with the lute…for this is a statute for Israel, a law of the God of Jacob….this He established in Joseph."

 

This thread of the sevens of the harp metaphor begins in Genesis and continues throughout the pages of Scripture, all the way to the 27th Book of the New Testament, Revelation - that mysterious book of sevens. Revelation vividly portrays the transition of the world’s landscape, as we enter the closing chapters of the civilizations of man that he has known for the past 6,000 years of recorded history.

 

The span of the lunar months of the music and festival period of Psalm 81 has always been set in the 207 days of the first seven months of the annual lunar calendar. Just as a week has seven days, it seems likely that the plan of God runs for 7,000 years. Many believe this to be a statement of fact. By that concept, each month of the seven-month 207-day span of the months of the Appointed times can be taken, in pattern, as representing 1,000 years.

 

By that measure, seven months becomes a picture of the whole of the 7,000 years and at the very expiration of that time, end of day 207, Tishri 30, Satan is released from his abyss of the 1,000-year containment.

 

Where is this stated? Precisely at the transition of 207. That is, Revelation 20:7. “Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison.” Perhaps it is not precisely at day 30, but the chronology of Revelation seems to imply that Satan’s imprisonment and release does occur in the seventh lunar month, Tishri.

 

 

The Trumpet Symbol of War and Assembly

 

The trumpet, an instrument of assembly and alarm throughout the history of Israel, was also, on special occasions, blown over the sacrifices and offerings of the temple service. This would have included the bowl and platter offerings of the Book of Numbers, chapter seven. These were the 2,520 (210 x 12) shekels of the bowl and platter offerings of the prince leaders of ancient Israel, including 10 shekels of incense per the 12 offerings. The incense was symbolic of the prayers of the saints (Rev. 8:3). And, in symbol, these vials or bowls of offering may, in the end, become the apocalyptic seven last plagues, poured out upon the late, Great Babylon.

 

In the Biblical account, times of judgment are stated in prophetic years of 360 days of 12 months, each a perfect 30 days in length. Or, perhaps it could be more correctly said that times, in general, seem to be spelled out in increments of 360 day years, of which many

 

such instances occur in the context of God’s judgments, aimed at correction and repentance.

 

In any case, the 12 tribes of the princes of Israel, in chapter seven of the book of Numbers, presented offerings of 210 shekels each, for a total of 210 x 12 = 2,520. Though formally it is said there were 12 tribes of ancient Israel, Israel of the spirit is symbolically represented by the seven churches, and 7 x 360 = 2,520, a number which perhaps is also represented, in type, by the seven vial plagues of Revelation. And, in Leviticus 26, God’s judgment comes in waves of “seven times more.” In this context of time or years, each typed by a circle of 360 degrees, the book of Revelation has been constructed upon prophetic times of 360 days, and/or the half divisions of same. That is, 1,260 days or 42 months is one half of 7 x 360 = 2,520 days.

 

Ironically, the seven bowl judgments of Revelation symbolically represent offerings commemorating the birth of the spiritual nation of Israel, just as there were offerings given at the foundation of the physical nation of Israel in the wilderness (Numbers, chapter seven). The first offerings represented a time of blessings for ancient Israel, with the latter offerings (bowl judgments) being a destructive curse upon Satan’s Babylonian system.

 

Now, it is nothing short of incredible that in our current scale of music for harp and similar instruments, in the span of the fourth, key of C octave (middle C), the frequencies of the seven notes, C to B is, 495 - 264 = 231. This is the exact number of the bowl offerings and animal sacrifices of the 12 princes of Israel in the book of Numbers, chapter seven! That is, 210 shekels + 21 animals each = 231, which mirror image is 132 = the third octave note C.

 

In prophetic language, the 210 shekels can represent the number of days in seven prophetic months. That is, 7 x 30 = 210 days. Also, the 21 animals becomes the number of the days of Daniel’s fast (Dan. 10:2), when on the 24th day of the seventh month of the civil year, the month of Nisan (i.e. another 24-7), a glorious angel (Gabriel?) appeared to him by the river, Tigris.

 

Perhaps this number 21 is also indicative of the seven bowl plagues of Revelation, which number, when finished, added to the seven seals and seven trumpets  + seven bowls = 21. In which case, if this analogy is true, God sealed this mystery in the book of Numbers, chapter seven, and then opened it by the seven seals of the 27th book, Revelation. The princes of physical Israel brought the platters (bowls) of offering in the Old Testament, but the contents are later symbolically poured out upon Great Babylon, in the presence of the princes of spiritual Israel, as they watch from the Sea of Glass. Thus, in symbol, Numbers, chapter seven, is mirrored by the seven bowl judgments, following the seventh trumpet.

 

Now, in his general epistle, the apostle James did not write to the 13 tribes scattered abroad, but to the 12. Yet, it is more than obvious that the 13th tribe, Manasseh was an adopted son of Jacob, therefore a 13th tribe, in reality, does exist.

 

In regard to the number 13, nowhere in Scripture are there any formal details of a lunar calendar, and nowhere is there a 13-month leap year specifically mentioned, yet seven of them are obviously included in each 19-year Metonic cycle of the Hebrew calendar. Perhaps the 13-month years are symbolic of Manasseh and perhaps the seven leap years represent the seven churches of spiritual Israel, while the 12-month lunar years represent the basic 12 tribes of Jacob, of which 12 x 12 = 144. This is the number of the thousands (144) who are sealed in Revelation seven. As we have learned, those things sealed and/or revealed are almost always accomplished by the operation of sevens.

 

In any case, 12 common + 7 leap years = 19, the Metonic cycle, in which is contained the number 12 for the physical tribes and the number seven for the seven churches of spiritual Israel. That is, 12 common + 7 leap years = 19, the years of each Metonic cycle, with recurring years marked and declared at the Day of Trumpets, Tishri 1.

 

The Day of Trumpets, the first day of the seventh lunar month (Lev. 23:23), is a mark of times and seasons (appointed times), both literal and prophetic. This mark of time connects Leviticus chapter 23 directly to the statement of Genesis 1:14. It is also a timeline which ties the dates and appointed seasons of the lunar calendar to prophetic signs in the heavens, including the many Appointed Times observed and written of in the gospel accounts of the New Testament.

 

                       

27/17 and 23, Numbers of Transition

 

 

 

The natural mathematical artifact of circular transition, BC, 23, or two-thirds, marks and defines the fourth octave standard of voice and music. This is at the BC point transition of the seven-note spiral of the octave, which is called middle C.

 

Now, this 27/17 BC juncture, Monday-Tuesday, or 2-3 transition of symmetry (middle C) was indelibly imprinted upon the years of the Biblical patriarch, Joseph, and upon many other prophetic patterns, from Genesis to Revelation. And, as we described earlier, the pattern 2717 fell upon a great event in this age, which was the year of 9/11 (2001 AD), 2,717 years removed from the fall of ancient Israel, 718 BC. This day of gloom occurred on Tuesday, Elul 23rd, the transition point of the helix spiral of music.

 

Monday-Tuesday, on the seven-day circle of the seventh month lunar declarations (day of Trumpets), marks the only point on the cycles of the seven-day week where adjacent days of the week are declared for Tishri 1. This is day one of the seventh lunar month, the first day of each lunar New Year of the civil calendar. In the key of C, the pattern is then 7-1 (B7 followed by C1 of the next octave). Seven-one, the month and first day of the lunar civil year, remember, is the number of the Sanhedrin (70), plus the high priest equals 71. We also have the pattern of Moses and the 70 elders = 1 + 70 = 71, from which the Sanhedrin came. 

 

An aside and as out of place as it may first appear to the subject at hand, early physicists, dealing with magnetic energy and radio waves, soon learned that in order to accurately calculate the wavelength of antennas for their transmitting devices a number constant had to be employed from the middle C octave of the C major scale.

 

That number is 468 (hertz), is the exact value of the harp diatonic, B flat. In free space, without the influence of earth, the number constant is B natural, at about 494 to 495, with the difference being 495 - 468 = 27. So, the number representing the magnetic mass influence of earth is obviously 27, a kind of number identity of our planet.

 

Both numbers, 468 and 495, sum to 18 (4 + 9 + 5 = 18), the number of parts contained in one minute (60 seconds) of the clock of lunar calculations (1,080 parts/hour) - a number constant going all the way back to the times of Old Testament temple service, and the festivals of harp, psalm and trumpets. Amazingly curious is the fact that the mathematical constant 468 is B flat and that modern trumpets are tuned to this frequency (i.e. B flat). 

 

 

By the Sevens

Finished, Opened, Divided, Cut Off and Sealed

                                             

By the operation of the sevens, the number seven, and/or divisions of seven, almost all mysteries of God are sealed, and by the sevens almost all things of God are revealed, once hidden and sealed. The truth and understanding of God are both shut or opened by the sworn oath and sign of covenant, the number seven.

 

Jesus spoke many parables in His ministry. In Matthew, He uttered the seven “kingdom” parables, in a chapter number (13) which signifies the seven 13-month leap years of the Metonic cycle. Matthew is the 23rd book of the Bible, the number of the pattern transitions (2-3) from which is derived the seven leap year rhythm sequence, 3323332.

 

Jesus’ parables fulfilled the words of Psalm 78:2, “I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings (things sealed) of old.” But, He adds, “be careful how you hear.” (Lk. 8:18)  By the same principle, the words of Psalm 49:4 state, “I will incline mine ear to a parable (the meaning sealed): I will open (unseal, reveal) my dark saying (riddle, parable) on the harp.” And this by the sevens of the string courses of the diatonic scale.

 

Once a person is called by God, He begins to reveal Himself and His plan of salvation through the keeping of the fourth commandment, seventh-day Sabbath. In virtually every case, this is where it begins, though God surely hears the sincere and humble prayer of anyone, even if such a person has not yet fully repented or received God’s Spirit.

 

The rotation of the cycle of seven days has been ongoing since creation week and is somehow a sign or mark of spiritual contact by which God opens the human mind. Jesus explains this concept with a simple statement of the fourth gospel, John 6:44. “No man can come to Me unless the Father who sent me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.” Other Scriptures make it quite clear that this “last day” is the day of the seventh and last trumpet (Rev. 10:7 & 11:15).

 

That pull or drawing, described in John 6:44, is of the spirit, and the object or outcome is to invite the one being called to the acceptance of a covenant, which requires an oath or binding agreement. This infers the operation of the number seven, as in the well of an oath (Beersheba). Sheba, of course, literally means seven. So, this “drawing” to Christ carries the implication of being chosen - then pulled and tugged by the thoughts of the mind and heart to a covenant agreement.

 

By the root words of the Greek, this pull of the mind, or “drawing” might be likened to a drawing force that unrolls the spirals of a scroll, as in opening or unsealing the human mind in order to grasp Godly concepts of words written. God speaks through the writings of the 49 books of His word, sealed in seven divisions. The deeper parables of His words are fully unlocked and understood only by and through the operation of the Holy Spirit.

 

This scroll or helix spiral implies cyclical energy of the spirit. According to Revelation (Rev. 1:4), there are seven flames of God’s Spirit, before His throne - in pattern, one for each of the seven churches and/or the seven divisions of His word, the Bible.

 

As in the octave waves of musical sound, or magnetic energy that travels unseen, so are the seven Spirits of God. The Spirit draws or spirals upward, lofty, as in the name of Mary’s physical father, Heli. And though sound cannot be seen, men have drawn spiral graphs of the musical tones, demonstrating how the ascending spirals of the pitch can be coiled up, as in a scroll of seven tones of a helix.

 

So, in Jesus’ statements of John 6:44 and John 12:32, we have some double metaphors. That is, God the Father draws an individual to Christ, and then those who die in Him will be raised or resurrected. Immediately following the resurrection comes the upward spiral to the sea of glass. This is at the point of the seventh trump of Revelation, the seventh event of the seventh seal of the spiral scroll, Revelation - the seventh division of the seven sevens of the 49 books.

 

Again, in most cases, this pull or spiral draw on the human mind is accomplished by first opening one’s understanding to the Sabbath rest of the fourth commandment (a seven), then one advances to repentance, baptism and the 14th Passover. Thus, the pattern of John 6:44 is 6 + 4 + 4 = 14, the double seven of Passover observance. And those who have the power of this spiral of the seven Spirits are Two. They command the helix circle of the seven Spirits of flame. They are God the Father and Jesus Christ. 

 

Now, as it seems probable that Jesus’ ministry, following His baptism, began on the Day of Atonement, 26 AD, then the bookends by days of the week, from Atonement 26 AD to Passover 30 AD, are Wednesday-Wednesday, the notes D-D, or simply that familiar number of prophetic significance, 44.

 

And, according to the symmetry of the natural diatonic scale, DD = 297 + 297 = 594, the mirror image of 495, the free space wavelength number constant for light propagation. This is the frequency of the seventh note B (495 hertz) of the diatonic scale for stringed instruments. Interesting that Jesus is called the “Light” and that the free space propagation formula constant of the velocity for light and magnetic energy waves falls at approximately 495.

 

Since Atonement falls on the lunar date 7/10, it seems a bit more than coincidental that Jesus’ ministry apparently began on 7/10, then He was officially chosen by His Father as the Passover Lamb on the Sabbath day, precisely 44 months later, which was on day seven and the lunar date of 10, in the year of His crucifixion. According to Passover law, the selection of the Lamb of God would have taken place on Nisan 10, 30 AD (see Jn. 12:12-36). So, we have the week day and date, 7/10, Saturday, Nisan, 10, 30 AD. On both dates, the Atonement of His baptism, then the Sabbath day, Nisan 10, four days before His crucifixion, a Voice came from heaven, glorifying Jesus.

 

Moreover, from the combination of the two dates and days of the week, we have 7/10 + 7/10 = 17 + 17 = 34 = the division of the seven-note octave of music (3/4), which was Jesus’ year of death on the cross (His 34th year), on the very day that He spoke those famous words of John 17:17 (= 34).

 

Jesus’ physical span of life in the flesh, from the fall of 5 BC until death, was about 414 months, the double of the 207 days of the seven months of each annual season of the Appointed Times (207 + 207 = 414). Read either way, the reflection is the same, 414. Or, in the Hebrew gematria, we have 207 + 207 = Light + Light = 27 + 27 = 9 + 9, or 99 hertz, the seventh note of the diatonic scale. And, 9 + 9 = 18 = the parts per minute of the calculated Hebrew calendar of timekeeping.

Atonement fell on the weekday of Monday in 30 AD, and Trumpets was declared on Saturday. Since Passover fell on Wednesday, these major dates of prophetic history then form the familiar number pattern of 247, the note B for stringed instruments of the diatonic scale. That is, days 2, 4 and 7 of the seven-day week.

 

This is the number of time. That is, 24/7. In the dual listing of the ten commandments of Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5, the only commandment with a time reference is the fourth, referring to the Appointed Time of the seventh day of the week. Of the 10 commandments, idolatry (2) and adultery (7) are linked together with the Sabbath commandment (4), occurring between the numbers of two and seven. These are the main issues that always trapped ancient Israel in sin. They have both physical and spiritual implications. In form, the relationship is of these three commandments then, is two-four-seven (247).

 

During the seven-day week of creation, with a direct linkage to time keeping, the elements of time were listed in Genesis 1:14 established and assigned on the fourth day of creation (Wednesday). Though little recognized by the world at large, this is where the subject of the appointment of times began. This, at the double seven, 14th verse of Genesis, chapter one, and 14 (Passover), is that premiere event that makes all else possible.

 

The requirement of the seventh day of rest was listed twice in the official coding of the Decalogue registers of Exodus and Deuteronomy. So, the pattern becomes two listings of the fourth commandment of the seventh day observance, or stated in simple number formation, 247 - the seven-day weekly time lock of the 247- year, 13th cycle of the Metonic intervals - a Metonic span being 235 months, or 2 + 3 + 5 = 10, the commandment Decalogue.

 

But referring again to John 6:44: six is the number of man, created on day six of the Genesis account, verse 27, and 44 is the sixth note of music and the length (44 months) of Jesus’ ministry, as well as the age of Joseph (44) at the end of the double sevens of feast/famine.

 

So pertaining to John 6:44, an individual (a number 6) is chosen, and then drawn into the seventh day of rest (Gen. 2:3) which God has set apart for special use. This process of coming to a “rest” and “sealing,” in symbolic pictorial, is surely part of the 144 thousand of Revelation, chapter seven, and, in pattern, has both physical and spiritual overtones. 

 

In the 44th month, on the 14th day of the month, on the fourth day of the sevens (the week), Wednesday, 44 months and 4 days after it began, the ministry of Jesus as a physical man came to an end, on Passover, Nisan 14, 30 AD.

 

However, after His resurrection, which occurred near the end of the seventh day, on the 17th of Nisan, He remained on earth until the 44th day after the crucifixion, departing the Mount of Olives on the 27th day of Iyar, 30 AD, 749 years after the carrying away of the 10 northern tribes of Israel by the Assyrians, 718 BC. 

Referring again to John 6:44, 6 x 44 = 264: this product is the frequency of middle C for stringed instruments, and the sum just happens to be 6 + 44 = 50, the day of Pentecost. Thus, by a double coincidence of numbers and the lunar date of Pentecost, which is a Jubilee count, this pictures the day of the first resurrection of the seven churches, at the seventh octave. That is, 7 x 7 + 1 = 50 = Pentecost. So, we see the connection between Jesus’ appearance at Nazareth on the very day of Pentecost, coupled with the last part of John 6:44, which states, “I will raise him up at the last day” (Pentecost).

 

As we know, according to Paul, the first resurrection takes place at the seventh trump of Revelation, the day of Pentecost, also called the feast of sevens (weeks). So, it is amazing to observe the many ways in which Jesus’ statement of John 6:44 relates to both the symmetry of music and the process of conversion, leading to the seventh trumpet of resurrection. Here, in two different ways, occurs the number of regeneration. That is, a new beginning of a spiritual birth, occurring at the 1/8 day count of the week, Sunday, but also the end/beginning mark reference of the musical scale, the 1-8 transition of fourth octave middle C.

 

In the context of God’s promise (a covenant seven), Paul speaks of the seventh day, fourth commandment in the epistle to the Hebrews, saying, “There remains therefore a rest (Sabbath keeping) to the people of God.” (Heb. 4:9). Note that the ratio, 4/9ths, set up by Hebrews 4:9, is 44.4, a familiar number derivative of prophecy and the calculations of lunar time.

 

The word “rest” (or rested) occurs nine times in the fourth chapter of Hebrews, but in the seventh occurrence of “rest,” and only the seventh, a different word is used in the Greek, setting it apart from the other eight references to a time of rest. This direct reference to the fourth (4) commandment, amidst the nine (9) uses of “rest,” occurs at Hebrews 4:9. This inference, then, being linked to the fourth commandment, the chapter, verse and subject becomes 4 9 4, a reflection of the harp and her seven strings of the mystery and riddle of Psalm 49:4.  

 

In the seventh occurrence of “rest” (Heb. 4:9), the Greek word is “Sabbatismos,” which literally means “Sabbath keeping.” In the other eight instances of chapter four, the word for rest is “katapausis.” That is, to cease from work or activity, which may apply to a multitude of situations. “Sabbatismos” refers only to Sabbath keeping.

 

But it is from this point or genesis (Sabbath keeping) that the full knowledge of God’s plan begins to grow in the minds of those called (John 6:44). That process of growing, by analogy, continues to the seventh trump, the last trump of Revelation, chapter 11. Therefore, in a sense, the bookends of salvation may be symbolically stated as the span from the seventh day to the seventh trump, from the keeping of covenant to the reward of the same.

 

The seventh-day Sabbath is then a covenant sign and seal of identity, a validation for those called, a signature, hidden and unseen by the world at large - a symbol or assurance of promises and agreements entered into.

Such signatures or covenant signs of identity are nowhere found in the patterns of the Occult holidays of mainstream religions, and without the agreement and entering into His covenant (a seven) it is impossible to have a relationship to God, leading to the salvation of the seventh trumpet of resurrection.  

 

Now, it may be asked, isn’t this concept and necessity of the fourth commandment rather letter of the law? Doesn’t God know our hearts, and after all, isn’t that the important thing? So, what difference does the seventh day make, with respect to Sunday or another day one might choose to observe?

 

Those of the Church of Rome or most any Protestant denomination will fully agree with Jesus’ statement, “Think NOT that I have come to destroy the prophets!” Yes indeed, no logical mind will disagree with that statement, so why then do many object to the full text, which says, “Think NOT that I have come to destroy the law or the prophets.” (Mt. 5:17)? The fourth commandment is a premiere point of God’s law, and Jesus, in the first Person stated, “Think NOT that I have come to destroy it.”

 

In the resurrection, Moses would probably have a good point to make, concerning every jot and tittle of the word of God. He surely learned the importance of following every detail of God’s instructions. Moses, in his haste and anger, chose to strike the rock, in lieu of speaking to it per God’s directive. Though he will have salvation, the penalty of his self-will, anger and thoughtless actions was the forfeiture of his opportunity to enter the land of promise.

 

When we love God and His way of life, closely following His instructions is surely little to do as our part of the relationship. After all, for our sins, none of us have ever been required to submit to a beating, be lashed to a point just short of death, then taken out and nailed to a tree. Mel Gibson did a pretty good job of showing this in his movie. It is a gruesome thing to contemplate. Compared to that, observance of the fourth commandment, as part of the covenant agreement, is a small thing to do. By doing so, one maintains an ongoing, weekly contact, in worship to God, on the day that He (not men) appointed. Moreover, according to God, the seventh day is a delight, not a burden.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 15

 

 

COVENANT SIGNATURES

(Oaths, Signs and the Appointed Times)

 

God makes use of signs or symbols to indicate His presence. He begins to speak of signs in the very first chapter of Genesis (Gen. 1:14). And, in the finale of all things, the scroll of Revelation is sealed with seven seals, able to be opened only by the slain Lamb of the new covenant, bearing the numbers of an oath, by the seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God (Rev. 5:6).

 

Indeed, regarding the signs and Appointed Times, the one and only sign which Jesus gave as proof that He is the Messiah has connections that link directly to Genesis 1:14 and Leviticus 23. That is, He said, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” (Mt. 12:39)

 

Therefore, contained in that one statement, we find not only the proof that He spoke of, but in the context of the events, the occurrence of no less than five of the Appointed Times of Leviticus 23.

 

Within the three days and three nights are: 1) the two divisions of night and day; 2) the Wednesday, 14th Passover of 30 AD; 3) the first day of the Unleavened Bread (Nisan 15); 4) the 17th of Nisan, the third day and sign that He gave; and 5) the day of the resurrection, the end of the weekly Sabbath. So contained in this one event are about half of the foundational nine Appointed Times of God that occur in every year.

 

In any case, Jesus’ sign of being dead for three days and three nights was fulfilled. Notice the emphatic proof recorded in the words of the Apostle John’s account. No other Scripture is this precise. Why would anyone, intending to anoint and pay respects to the dead, do so at such an unreasonable hour of the day? The simple answer is so that, with regard to the specific legality of Jesus’ statement, His word had to be precisely fulfilled, verified and recorded. Let’s first read John’s statement, and then further explain.

 

On the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was STILL DARK (Jn. 20:1). Had this event happened later in the day, then the argument of a Sunday morning resurrection would be more plausible. But, the stone was gone, it was still dark, and Jesus was NOT there. Why? Simply because, just as He had given the sign that He would be in the grave three days and three nights, He was resurrected many hours before the dawn of Sunday morning. If not, then He either lied or exaggerated because He was placed in the tomb very late in the day, moving toward the time of sunset and twilight - late Wednesday afternoon, just before the night portion of Thursday. Therefore, in order that Jesus’ words were precisely fulfilled, His resurrection had to take place about the same time, very late day, Saturday, just about sunset. This was the point of the one and only sign that He was the Messiah. Therefore, on Sunday morning, He was NOT there. He had already risen about sunset the evening before. 

 

In Hebrews 7:28 Paul explains that Jesus Christ, the slain Lamb of God, became our high Priest by a covenant or word of a seven (an oath). That is, God sevened Himself that Jesus would become high Priest forever, after the order of Melchisedec, an office first revealed in the 14th, double seven chapter of Genesis 14, and spoken of later in a profound way in the seventh chapter of Hebrews (see also, Psa. 110:4).

 

The plan of God to salvation, once beginning to be unsealed and revealed by the seventh-day Sabbath, then advances to the seven annual Sabbaths of the appointed festivals of Leviticus 23. Similar to the scale of music, all set times of God, without exception, are directly or indirectly connected to a pattern of counting by sevens. From this concept and analogy comes the theme and title of this book, “The Music of the Appointed Times.”

 

The times of God bear the covenant sign of the sevens, and even though the calendar of the lunar calculations must take into account the fact of the fractional month of 29.53 days, it does so by the management of the mathematical calculations, based upon and overlaid by the number seven.

 

Even the 19-year Metonic cycle is interlaced and kept on seasonal track by the operation of seven leap years, dispersed by a pattern which portrays the seven musical notes of the scale. In this 19-year time cycle, the seven leap years flow in the rhythm of C major, which is long-long-short-long-long-long-short (3323332). These seven leap years adjust the lunar calendar so that it is kept in season. That is, so that the festival transitions of the spring and fall are kept in sync with the harvest cycles of the north western hemisphere.

 

We’ve all heard the expression “the equinox storms.” The seventh month of the sacred year and the seventh month of the civil year, by the seven leap year cadence, approximate the seasons of the spring and fall equinox. About this time of spring and fall, the circuit winds begin to shift, often bringing with them storm cycles of rain showers. In modern times we’ve come to call these circuit winds of the Bible the jet streams. They are weather-makers, and just as we are told in Revelation 7:1, there are four of them, (i.e. winds).

 

Meteorologists confirm this, as there are typically four major jet streams circling the earth at all times. These are called the polar and sub-tropical jet streams - two to the north and two streams to the south of the equator. These jet streams not only influence weather from the air, but they also affect the flow of ocean currents.

 

Now, since everything in God’s creation has rhythmic energy, this poses the question, are these circuit winds somehow in sync with the seven years of the leap year cycles? That is, an early or late spring or fall is somewhat determined by the position of these wind currents. So, for instance, if the jet stream from Canada slips south a bit early, then the Unites States will typically have an early winter. Perhaps, there is a synced rhythm of the four circuit winds with the seven leap years cycles, which then flow, in concert, with the harvest seasons. This is just speculation, based on the many patterns of God’s rhythmic creativity, but, nonetheless is a curious thought to ponder.

 

With days declared by the calculated Hebrew calendar, God’s plan is expressly unsealed and begun by the covenant and memorial of the double seven, 14th Passover, followed by the seven days of Unleavened Bread, both, by number, covenant signs of an oath of promise (seven).

 

Moreover, Unleavened Bread marks the beginning period of the seven-week, seven-octave count to Pentecost, with observance at day 50, following the seven times seven weeks of the barley harvest. By the seven-week progression of the spring barley harvest comes the picture of the yet future first resurrection of the firstborn of the seven churches. This resurrection to eternal inheritance is the reward of the new covenant - the reward of salvation at the seventh octave, the day of Pentecost.

 

This will occur at the seventh trump, described in the 27th New Testament book, Revelation. This is the seven times seven, or 49th book of the Bible, in which is recorded the seven seals, seven trumpets, seven golden candlesticks, seven stars, seven thunders, the sounding of the angel of the seventh trumpet, and the seven angels with the seven last plagues. Indeed, few things of God are bound, sealed, revealed or divided, apart from the operation of the sevens.

 

Christians become sealed of the Holy Spirit, following repentance, baptism, and the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ, which was shed on the double seven, 14th day of Nisan, 30 AD. None of the world’s Occult holidays even remotely portray God’s patterns of the sevens.

 

The apostle John, in the seventh chapter of Revelation, records the sealing of the 144,000 of the tribes of Israel, and, in the same book is described the mysterious beast with the seven heads.

 

To both Daniel and John were described the mystery of the dividing of seven, by the time, times and a half time, a span which equals the half division of seven years. That is, 42 months, or the half of seven, 1,260 days, or three and one-half years. This period of time Jesus refers to in His statement of the gospel of Matthew (Mt. 24:21-22). That is, the time of great tribulation will be “cut short,” limited to 3.5 years. This period begins with a broken covenant (Dan. 9:27), which is symbolized by the division of seven. Therefore, since seven is the sign of covenant, then 3.5 is the breaking, or division of the same.

 

Now, concerning the sealing and/or revelation by the sevens, please note the incredible number imagery of Daniel 9:24 and the 70 weeks prophecy. We have discussed at great length the alignment of the seven days of the weekly cycle with the 247-year cycles of the Metonic. By the cadence flow and rhythm of the seven leap years of 19-year Metonic, equated to the seven days of the week, the second, seventh and ninth days of the week are synonymous.

That is, by the progression of the C major scale, which the rhythm of the seven Metonic leap years mimics, the scale of the seven leap years begins at Tuesday (note C), ending with Monday (note B). Thus, Monday is the seventh note, which is the second day position of the week. But, by that order of rotation, Monday is also the ninth day of the weekly cycle, counting inclusively from Sunday, nine days previous.

 

So again, the sevens of the week, by lunar dates, are duplicated (same day of the week) at intervals of 247 years. Therefore, with all this in mind, let’s look again at the placement construct of that premiere prophecy of the entire Bible, which is the 70 weeks of Daniel 9:24. The placement and numbering of this verse is quite profound. That is, the first word of this 24th verse is sevens, or sevens of weeks. Thus, the pattern formed at verse 24 is literally, 24 sevens (247), with the fulfillment and storyline of this 70-weeks text of prophecy threading to the gospel accounts of Jesus’ ministry, then on to the last and 27th book of the New Testament, Revelation. Revelation is the last and 49th book of the whole Bible and the first segment of Daniel’s prophecy is a span of 49 years (539 to 490 BC).

 

In the book of Revelation, the 24 Alpha Omega letters of the Greek text flow in a story outline, all based on the multiples and divisions of the sevens. So, the 24 sevens of Daniel’s 70 weeks (Dan. 9:24) are a lock and key set with the 24 sevens of Revelation - a text of the sevens, written in the 24 letters of the Greek language.

 

Therefore in Daniel and Revelation, each being a continuation and companion of the other, we have 247 + 247 = 494, the Psalm of the harp parable, riddle and mystery, Psalm 49:4 - the double of 247. Remember, based on the cyclical rotation of seven, we said that the numbers, 2, 7, and 9 are all synonymous with the weekday of Monday, the equivalent to the B note of the diatonic, 247. Such patterns of the Bible are exhaustive, but we can never say enough about God’s astounding use and construct of this symmetrical imagery. Jesus Christ is ever the master of parable, analogy and metaphor.

 

By the use of the prophetic sevens almost all things hidden by God are sealed, and without the sevens, whether singular, multiplied or divided, few things are ever revealed.

 

Jesus apparently began His ministry on the Day of Atonement, the tenth day of the seventh month, 26 AD. In preface to His ministry, John the Baptist baptized Jesus, and immediately the Holy Spirit, in the form of a dove, descended upon Him, fulfilling Isaiah 61:1 (“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me“).

 

Immediately after John baptized Jesus, Jesus fled into the wilderness, beginning His 40 days of fast on the Day of Atonement. It seems that week 70 of Daniel’s prophecy was thrown open at this pivotal juncture of history. The 10th Psalm of the Psalms of Ascent, Psalm 129, traditionally read on this very day (Atonement), graphically describes the end of Jesus’ 44-month journey, projecting forward to Nisan 14, 30 AD.

 

Here, at the Passover, in the last and mid-week of Daniel’s week 70, about 3.5 years after John’s baptism, this Psalm and verse prophesied of this historical event. Describing Jesus’ lashing at the decree of the Pontifex Pilate (Pontius Pilate), He was then delivered to a brutal scourging. The verse reads, “The plowers plowed on My back; They made their furrows long,” (Psa. 129:3).

 

So, in the verse of Psalm 129:3, the Day of Atonement, 26 AD, is tied to the atoning and blood sacrifice of Passover, 30 AD, at the suffering and crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Hence, the bookends are formed, reflecting the Passover of 30 AD back to the beginning of Jesus’ ministry, Atonement, 26 AD. 

 

In a twist of verbal irony, some 1500 years after those days, William Tyndale, the man who translated the Bible into English, in a heated debate with one of his Catholic colleagues, said of the Pontius Maximus of his day, "I defy the Maximus (i.e. the Pope), and all his laws; and if God spares my life, ere many years, I will cause the boy that driveth the PLOW to know more of the Scriptures than thou dost!"

 

Precisely at the eighth multiple of the 247-year pattern cycles, 1,976 years past the year when Jesus’ back, according to the prophetic Psalm, was plowed (scourged), a man whose definition of name refers to an implement of plowing, as in the seedtime for harvest, Fred R. Coulter, published the first ever edition of a Bible in English, in the original order of the 49 books. This publication was finished in the lunar year 2005/06 AD. Called, The Faithful Version,” this is a wonderful Bible no Christian should be without. 

 

The scribe Mark, in a bold and flowing discourse, by the pattern,

2 4 7, in the second book of the fourth division of the seven divisions of the Scriptures, describes the mission of John the Baptist, as Jesus Christ opens and walks through the door to the last seven years of Daniel’s 490-year prophecy.

 

The enemy fore type of the Beast and Maximus of the seventh division of the Bible (book of Revelation), Pontius Pilate, Prefect of Jerusalem, came to power in the very same year that Jesus opened His ministry, 26 AD. Thus, Mark writes of that prophetic time, year and event, quoting from the Old Testament, “Behold, I send My messenger before your face!” (Mal. 3:1). This occurred with the ministry of John the Baptist, followed shortly thereafter by the appearance of the Messiah, Jesus Christ.

 

These events began the half-week of Jesus’ ministry. It is amazing to realize that just as the seventh church, Laodicea, is active during the second half of Daniel’s week 70, here in the first half, some 2,000 years previous to the end of the church age, the region of the domain of Laodicea (Pontus) appears in the name of the Prefect, Pontius Pilate.

 

So it as if when Jesus walked through the door of week 70, all the actors, in the symbolic types of the end times – they were on stage, though separated by thousands of years. This agrees with Jesus’ statement of Revelation that He is both the Beginning and End. He lives throughout all time, and for Him there is no future, past or present, but only eternity. So, by analogy, when He entered week 70, it was as if it was a continuum, not based on time as man counts it, but based on the harvest of seven church weeks, of which the end circles back to the beginning. Thus, by that view, the entire span of the New Testament age occupies one week. As such, if week 70of Daniel’s prophecy is divided by circular progression of the weekly cycle, and if the identity of Laodicea places it in week70, then, by definition, Laodicea is also present in the first half of the same week, with Jesus Christ appearing in both segments, connecting the end back to the beginning.     

 

Though we have no definitive statement, it then seems probable that the beginning of the ministry of Jesus Christ opened week 70 of Daniel’s prophecy. The timeline then later becomes paused at the half-week division of the full week course (3.5 years), on the mid-week, Wednesday Passover of 30 AD.

 

This segue from the division of the half week to the half week of week 70 forms an amazing pattern. The man who recorded the last of the four gospel accounts, the apostle John, was present for the closing events of the first half of week 70. Later, the storyline begins again in the fifth book of the account of the half week, Wednesday Passover of the slain Lamb of God. It begins John is taken, by a vision, to the second half of week70, the book of Revelation.

 

Thus, John’s physical experience as witness to the first half-week was simply continued in a vision of spirit, so that he saw and lived in both halves of the week (seven years), separated, at first, by more than six decades, from 30 AD to the visions of Revelation at the end of that first century AD. The timeline then extends out to and past the present age! We cannot understand these things unless we learn how God thinks. John’s experience becomes a vivid and bold fulfillment of the parting words of Jesus’ conversation with Peter in the closing verses of the gospel of John 21:21-22. Here, Jesus said to Peter, “If I will that he (John) remain till I come, what is that to you?” So John, in the visions of Revelation, remained until the second coming of his cousin, Jesus, the Christ.

 

In summary, the relationship of the 70 weeks of Daniel and the seven weeks of the church age, and all events surrounding, become the old mathematical axiom. If A = C and C = B, then A = B. Therefore, on the circular graph of time, the seventh week, seventh church, Laodicea, precedes, transitions to and exceeds all ages of New Testament history. The elements of Laodicea, by the cycles of the sevens, throughout the ages, have always been. Thus, the seventh age, in the form of the beginning and end, encapsulates the 70, which includes the 9 x 7 = the 63 weeks of the Messiah. Then, the previous first segment of the seven weeks (49) involves the building of the temple, to which Jesus suddenly appears, both in 26/27 AD, and following through to the end of the age and the seventh week of Laodicea, when those resurrected, all together, compose the spiritual temple of the body of Christ.

 

Colossae was a sister city and church, close to Laodicea. About 62 AD the apostle Paul wrote epistles to both cities (Col. 4:16). The epistle to Laodicea did not survive, but it is interesting that in the epistle to the Colossae, the subject of observing the annual Sabbaths (the sevens) was addressed, as was also Jesus’ confrontation with the powers of authority, which, by inference, includes the Maximus type, the Prefect, Pontius Pilate, operative of Satan himself (Col. 2:15-17). Paul concludes that Jesus, in an open display, made a public spectacle of all, as He will also do in the finale of the half-week of Laodicea, at the end of the age. It would be a gem of great price to be able read the epistle to Laodicea, the seventh of the road (Pont) circuit of the church circle of Asia Minor. If it were possible to read that epistle, we would likely learn more of the sevens and the prophetic mysteries of God.        

 

Let’s go back to the subject of the scrolls and the sevens of prophecy. Jesus, in the beginning year of the first half of week 70, in the synagogue of Nazareth, was handed the scroll of Isaiah, from which He read the first half of the fulfillment of Daniel’s 70-week prophecy. He stopped mid-verse in Isaiah 61:2, closing the scroll, thus avoiding the completion of the thought, “the day of vengeance.”

 

In John’s vision of Revelation, this is essentially where the storyline again becomes active, when the slain Lamb of the story, which chronology left off with John’s fourth gospel account, is again given a scroll to open, just as happened in the synagogue of Nazareth. And, just as Daniel was told to shut and seal the words of the full understanding of the 70 weeks until the time of the end, the scroll handed to Jesus in Revelation 5:7 was sealed with seven seals. Therefore, it appears that when the slain Lamb of the Passover takes the scroll in the book of Revelation, this begins the approximate time of the last half of Daniel’s week 70.

 

So, from the half-week onset in the synagogue of Nazareth to the half-week finale of Revelation, the seven years of week 70 are concluded. And, from the pen of the apostle John of the fourth gospel, to his visions of Revelation, the links are connected and the prophetic transition is accomplished. The story of the seven-week history of the seven churches, from Galilee to the end of the age, begins the final years to completion, when the scroll of the Nazareth synagogue is again opened, in the presence of God, the 24 elders (with harps), the four living creatures and the seven Spirits. Jesus Christ, at that point, picks up the remainder of week 70, which falls in the context of the second half of the verse, Isaiah 61:2. Note that the sum of the numbers is, 61 + 2 = 63, which number (63) is synonymous with week 70 of Daniel’s prophecy.   

 

In the setting of Galilee, 27 AD, the reading of Isaiah 61 (Luke 4) appears to have taken place on the day of the sevens (Pentecost), Sivan 8, 27 AD. By inclusive count, this was precisely 264 days after Atonement of 26 AD, the day when Jesus’ ministry began. This (264), as we have discussed many times, is the frequency of the open string diatonic for middle C of music. Isaiah 61 was a prophecy recorded and predetermined more than 700 years pervious, and was specifically fashioned for that very time and purpose. Therefore, Jesus said, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing,” (Luke 4:21).

 

Jesus ceased reading at mid-verse, dividing the second verse of Isaiah 61, as if at the half-week, because it was not yet time for His “day of vengeance.” That time would come in the future, ending at the time setting of the seven seals, the seventh trumpet, and the pouring of the seven bowl judgments - events all coming at the close of Daniel’s 70-weeks prophecy. But, on that day in Nazareth it was not yet time for the completion of the second half of week 70, so Jesus stopped mid-verse (Isa. 61:2), rolled up the scroll and handed it back to the attendant. In John’s vision, it was handed back to Him by His Father. Then, loosing the seven seals, one by one, He again continued the story begun in Zebulun of Galilee.

 

Precisely at the beginning of the seventh B-note cycle of the 247-year timelines of the gospel that emerged from the harp-shaped Sea of Galilee, the renowned scholar of Zebulun, Erasmus of Holland, came to the court circle of Henry VIII of England. The beginning of the seventh cycle of 247 years, counting from the lunar year of 26/27 AD, falls on 1508/09 AD, and that is when Erasmus accepted a position at Cambridge in London. In doing so, this Greek scholar created the impetus which would pave the way to translate all 49 books of the Biblical scroll into the English language. 

 

In the lunar year of 26/27 AD, Jesus came to Nazareth, His hometown, on the 264th day of His ministry, to read from the scroll of Isaiah in the synagogue. What is so unusual and timely about this 264th day of that lunar year, 27 AD, when Jesus opened the scroll? Scholars have understood that in Jesus’ reading of Isaiah 61 in the synagogue of Nazareth, as recorded in Luke 4:16, the word for the time setting of the “Sabbath day” in English does not fully convey the meaning, as Luke originally recorded in the Greek text.

 

That is, in the original Greek, the phrase is, “Now on the day of the Sabbaths, or on the day of the weeks.” Therefore, this is a Sabbath day, but not the weekly Sabbath. Rather, it is that which is sometimes called, the “feast of weeks,” or more simply, the day of Pentecost. Thus, this annual Sabbath was Sunday, the count 50, 7 x 7 weeks (Sabbaths) + 1 day. This is the eighth day of the week and the first day of an eight or octave count.

 

This is profound when we consider that the timing of that event occurs on a number of division, which is standard to the musical scale. That is, 264 hertz is the bedrock center and world standard reference point of voice, performance and hearing. Just as Jesus divided the second verse of Isaiah 61:2, middle C divides the eight octaves of music at the fourth octave home base location. That is why we call it, “middle C.” In the key of C, 264 hertz becomes the first note of the scale, but also the eighth note. That is, the octave, C to C progression. In that sense, then, it parallels the first and eighth day, day 50, Pentecost. However, though the 1-8 analogy applies, we would have to clarify that the Pentecost count occurs in the key of A, seeing the day always falls on Sunday.

 

But, based on the day 264 chronology of Jesus’ ministry, this event of Jesus in the Nazareth synagogue, by analogy, was recorded at the home base, octave division of the musical scale, 264 hertz. Middle C is the fourth octave division of eight.

 

Jesus divided and ceased reading at the second verse of Isaiah 61, and this event of the eight octave day (7 x 7 + 1 = 50) was recorded at the half division of eight, Luke chapter four. With this reading, it seems probable that Jesus was announcing the first and opening year of Daniel’s 70-weeks prophecy, which timeline would later pause at mid-verse of Isaiah 61:2, 30 AD, on the day of Jesus’ crucifixion. The Passover of His death would then be the half-week of week 70, with the remainder of the week yet to be fulfilled. So, in that regard, the opening lines of Revelation, chapter one, provide a beautiful segue between the two segments of week 70. That is, the half of week 70 ended with Jesus’ death. Therefore, when John, in vision, saw Jesus in Revelation 1:18, He said, “I am He who lives and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore.”

 

Jesus’ three and a half year ministry then formed one bookend, the half of week 70, with the other end being the last three and a half years of the seventh church era of the New Testament, Laodicea, as portrayed in the finale of Revelation. By this scenario the 70-week timeline will become active again for the last three and a half years, at the end of the age. This would then complete week 70 of Daniel’s prophecy.

 

So, here we have the linkage of the seven sevens of Jubilee (50), with the seven sevens of Pentecost, tying together Isaiah 61, Isaiah 9, Daniel 9:24-27, Luke 4, Acts 2 and the events beginning with the sevens of Revelation 10:7. All this ties the end to the beginning, with the finale of week 70 being a capsule snapshot of the whole of Daniel’s 70 weeks. This means that in pattern, the original seven weeks of 49 years of temple restoration was a replication or fore type of the last week of the 70 years prophecy, which week, beginning with Jesus’ ministry, encloses all of the New Testament construction of the spiritual house, beginning with the High Priest of the temple, Jesus Christ. The seven weeks of the church harvest of the past 2,000 years and beyond, then completes the temple. These are patterns of the seven circles of prophetic muse, an artwork of God’s design. The circles of the sevens fit, one within the other, completing the plan of God, formed by the sevens, in a multitude of patterns. 

 

Weeks 63 and 70 of Daniel’s prophecy are both synonymous, yet opposite bookends of the musical scale. The first seven weeks of the 49-year temple restoration period, having passed by 490 BC, left 63 remaining of the 70 weeks.

 

Both numbers flow by the energy of the sevens. That being the case, the calculated circumference of a diameter of 63 weeks is 63 x 3.14159 = 198, the exact value of the seventh note, G of the scale of music. Likewise, the circumference of a 70-week diameter is 70 x 3.14159 = 220, the precise number of the A note of the scale. So, the first seven weeks identify the recurring sequence of the sevens of the 7 x 70 = 490 years, while the last seven years are like the seventh note of the scale, which is 198 hertz. These third and fourth octave tones of transition are then, 198 and 220 hertz, in the key of A. The Fourth octave note A, key of C, would, of course, be the double of 220, or 440 hertz, bearing the number (44) of the months of the ministry of Jesus Christ.

 

 

It is interesting, too, that what began with seven weeks of 49 years comes to a close in the 49th book of the Bible, Revelation. Here, in the half-cycle, 11th chapter of this 49th book, where the events of the latter half of week 70 are described (1,260 days), the apostle John is given a reed to measure the temple and those who worship therein.

 

The first seven weeks (49 years) of the temple restoration period was a type of the seven weeks Pentecost count to salvation and the first resurrection, described as the seventh trumpet of Revelation, in book 49 of the Bible. The second temple was dedicated in 515 BC, which was 540 years before the Jubilee of 26/27 AD, when Jesus read Isaiah 61 at the synagogue in Nazareth.

 

This number of 540 years parallels the 540 Hebrew calendar parts of the half-hour silence of Revelation 8, the number of the octave cycle and the day of Pentecost. That is, Pentecost falls on the eighth day of the week, and there are 1,080 parts per one hour of time. Thus 540 parts = the half hour of silence. And it is here, in the opening verse of Revelation 8, that the seventh seal opens, moving towards the finale of the seventh trumpet day of Pentecost.

 

Revelation 8 appears to be the setting of the day of Trumpets, with the half-hour of silence just previous to the hour of incense (6:00 pm), coming to the evening of Tishri 1, the memorial of the blowing of trumpets (Lev. 23:24). Therefore, as the verse states, “And I (John) saw the seven angels who stand before God, and to them were given seven trumpets.” (Rev. 8:2). Leviticus 23:24, then, has a prophetic overtone, and this event and the half-hour of silence at the time of incense is the fulfillment of the prophecy, “a memorial of the blowing of trumpets.”

 

Therefore, Revelation 8:1 describes the opening of the seventh seal, highlighted by seven trumpets, at the very juncture and mid-division between the 23rd and 24th hour of the Hebrew calendar day. This is precisely the chapter and number - the transition of Leviticus 23:24, which states, “In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a memorial of blowing of trumpets.” Thus, Revelation 8 describes a memorial of the blowing of trumpets, and at the 23rd hour, at 540 parts into the hour, “the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.” (Rev. 8:6)

 

Based on the 21 major events of the sevens of Revelation; that is, the seven seals, seven trumpets and seven blow judgements, Revelation 8 occurs at the exact percentage of the one-third (33.3%) fulfillment of the 21 events. If this number form, 333 sounds familiar, it should. There are 3.33 parts per second - the very root number of calculation used to determine the Revelation 8:1 day of Trumpets. If we add this one-third to the 2/3rds transition of the octave (8-1) transition notes BC (Monday-Tuesday) of our musical/calendar spiral graph, then the sum is 1/3 + 2/3 = the whole. This symmetrical split of the octave day-notes 2-3 falls at 27/17 on the helix graph spiral, and, as we have discussed at length, the span of 2717 years is a marker of prophetic times and events.

 

So the setting of Revelation 8 appears to take place in the fall of the year, progressing forward toward the late spring day of Pentecost and the first resurrection. With the reading of Isaiah 61 on Pentecost, Jesus brings together the full spectrum of these directly connected events of the seven-octave, seven sevens of the harvest cycles, both physically of the Atonement (7/10) Jubilee, but more profoundly, the elevation to the spiritual plane of the Pentecost, the seven week church harvest of the first resurrection.

 

Paul, in I Cor. 15:52, describes this day and event as the “last trump,” which scholars understand is coincident with the seventh trumpet of Revelation. Here in Revelation, the 49th book of the Bible, at the seventh trump of the seventh seal, all prophecies, from Jacob’s utterance of Genesis 49 to the time setting of the latter days, all timelines of prophecy merge, moving towards the climax of all. 

 

And in the midst of all, on the day of Pentecost, in Nazareth, Jesus, by the “voice” standard of the 264th, 4th octave, Middle C day, declared, after reading Isaiah 61, “This day is this Scripture fulfilled in your ears (by hearing).”

 

But in a sense, by Jesus’ act of reading that text, He redefined and linked the meaning of the Atonement declaration of Jubilee with Pentecost, the symbolic Jubilee of the new covenant age. The Jubilee of old, falling on the 10th day of the seventh month, was being replaced by the Jubilee count of the New Testament age - a new count of Jubilee, not declared on the Day of Atonement, but now coming to the day of Pentecost. Here, the

 

inheritance of the physical, temporal promise was being replaced by one of eternity, the latter a much greater inheritance than the Atonement Jubilee of the 50-year cycles.

 

So, on this Appointed Time, the day of Pentecost in 27 AD, this event could not have been more accurately timed. The seven annual Sabbaths are declared by the calculated Hebrew calendar, a time- piece of mathematical order by which all lunar dates are adjusted 61% of the time, thus keeping the declaration of the seven festivals, always in season.

 

In a parallel to this 61% of adjustments to the declared dates of the lunar calendar, Jesus proclaimed the acceptable year of Isaiah 61. “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,” He said. “Today, this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” I will incline my hearing to a parable: I will open my mystery upon the harp (paraphrased, Psa. 49:4).

 

The apostle Paul, in the late 50’s AD, traveled far and wide, preaching Jesus’ message - a message that began on that day of Pentecost in Nazareth. That message of the gospel, Paul brought to the gentile churches of Asia Minor. This we know, because in the Scriptures are recorded the words of Paul, saying, “I will stay in Ephesus until Pentecost.” (I. Cor. 16:8).

 

As in the harvest of weeks (Pentecost) the seasons of the lunar dates are kept in check - adjusted by the form 6 + 1, or 61%. How fitting, then, that Jesus, on the day of Pentecost at Nazareth, 27 AD, fulfilled the words of Isaiah 6 + 1 (chapter 61), in a year of Jubilee, on the very day of count 50 (seven octaves) - pointing yet to a future time, falling on the Pentecost of the seventh trumpet of the first resurrection.

 

The 61% factoring of the lunar calendar is a refinement of the dates of the Appointed Times, so that they are correctly timed and ordered. How profound it was that Jesus, in His fulfillment of Isaiah 61, refined and redefined the day of the true inheritance, moving the day from the month Tishri in the fall, to the month Sivan in the late spring, at the end of the seven weeks, day 50 of the early, first resurrection harvest, the day of Pentecost. In doing so, the Jubilee of the old inheritance of the physical was transferred to the Pentecost of the new eternity of the spirit.

 

Finally, in symbol of the two covenants, old and new, are the numbers 1 4 7 and 2 4 7. In the Biblical context, a covenant oath (a sheba or seven) has four parts. These are the 1) terms; 2) agreement to the terms; 3) the sacrifice; and lastly, 4) the meal of the covenant. The first covenant of the Old Testament is symbolic of the 1 4 7. This was the lifespan of Jacob (147 years), father of physical Israel, to whom was given the old covenant with limited benefits. But it did not offer eternal life, as does the second covenant, which later came in the New Testament age. 

 

Therefore, even though the old covenant contained the four parts of the seven (covenant) agreement, including the sprinkling of the blood and the meal of sacrifice, it fell far short of the new covenant. Thus, the number of that covenant was 1 4 7, patterned after Jacob and his life of 147 years. He was the father of the 12 tribes.

But then came the second, or new covenant, symbolized by 2 4 7. This seven (a covenant) was also ratified with blood - a blood that far transcended the former. The latter was the blood of Jesus Christ. This second covenant, like the first, contained the terms of agreement, a New Testament, written in the 24 letters of the Greek text, which was the Word of God, Christ Himself. Jesus became the sacrifice of covenant, and provided the meal of sacrifice, the Passover bread and wine, symbolic of His flesh and blood. With this second covenant, agreement to the terms was also required, represented by the act of repentance and baptism. 

 

The old covenant at Mt. Sinai required the sprinkling of blood over the terms of the agreement, and likewise, with the coming of the new covenant, Jesus’ blood sprinkled the words of the book of covenant, written in the 24 letters of Greek. And, by His sustenance, He provides the way to eternal life.

 

The covenant of the gospel message was a new, or second (2) agreement of covenant, and like the first, it also contained the four (4) parts, including the blood sacrifice and the seven (7) of an oath. With this second (2) covenant came the promise of eternal life, by the four (4) parts of the seven (oath of covenant = 7). Therefore, in symbol, this covenant (a seven) embodies the numbers, 2 4 7.

 

Even the Ark of Covenant itself contained the pattern 2 4 7. This, by the two (2) Cherubim, which overshadowed the Mercy Seat, with their wings spread over the Seat, upon which blood was sprinkled. The Ark also contained the 1) words of covenant; 2) the manna; 3) Aaron’s rod; and 4) the tablets of stone, on which were written the Ten Commandments. Therefore, upon and within the Ark were the words and terms of agreement, the components of the sacrificial meal (blood and bread = manna), and the form itself, called the Ark of “Covenant” (7). It was kept behind the second veil of the temple. Thus, in different ways, it embodied the symbols of 2, 4 and 7, pointing to the future, by which Jesus would become the sacrifice of sprinkling upon the Seat of Mercy.

 

Therefore, behind the second veil (2) were the four (4) parts, enclosed within the seven (7) of covenant. That is, the Ark, over which hovered the Cherubim. The apostle Paul describes all this in a beautiful way, in Hebrews 9:1-7.  

 

Now, if all who ever lived are to be offered eternal life, and that symbol of promise is by a 2 4 7, then how do those who were under the old covenant of 1 4 7 attain to a resurrection to eternity? Very simply, there is a second resurrection, followed by a 100-year period of physical life of being judged as to whether one may be deemed worthy of eternal life in the family of God (Isa. 65:20).

 

Of course, many, if not most, shall achieve the goal, and this by 147 + 100 year judgment = 2 4 7 = eternal life, following the second resurrection of Revelation 20:5. Thus, the end result of the old and new covenants, pertaining to life eternal, are made equal, when 2 4 7 = 2 4 7.

 

 

Regarding the two covenants, the first was extended only to the nation of Israel and recorded in the words of Hebrew, which alphabet has 22 letters. Then came the new covenant, an agreement in which all races may enter into. The latter was written in Greek, considered a gentile language, which has 24 letters. Therefore, both covenants being represented by the covenant number of seven, the old covenant, in symbol, becomes 22/7, and the new covenant is then 24/7. These number patterns, in different ways, are spread throughout the Old and New Testament accounts.

 

These are just number analogies of a covenant process that is of much greater value than the numbers which are used to symbolize. None of us will remember all of these number patterns, but the important thing is to be aware that they are real and that they do exist. By such examples we can see how God’s word, His plan and purpose, always contain multiple layers of detail and creativity. 

 

When the second temple yet stood, at the coming of John the Baptist and Jesus Christ, Gabriel first appeared to the priest Zacharias in the sanctuary, behind the first veil, as he officiated at the altar of incense in the eighth course of Abia. This was done in the sense of leading the way for Him who would go beyond the second veil. That is, the High Priest, Jesus Christ, who officiates the new covenant, which includes many things contained in the number of covenant, seven. But, Jesus did not go behind the second veil of the physical temple, to the copies of those things made with hands, but into the Most Holy Place of the heavens, in the presence of God and the seven Spirits (paraphrased, Heb. 9:24-25 & Rev. 4:5). 

 

 

Pharaoh and His Double Dreams of the Double Sevens

 

Pharaoh dreamed the double dreams of the double sevens of the heads of grain and the seven gaunt and seven fat cows, but the interpretation was hidden, sealed and closed until Joseph, by God’s revelation, explained there would be seven years of plenty, followed by seven years of famine.

 

The city of Jericho was sealed and shut at the crossing of Joshua and Israel, when God opened the Jordan River at the place of rolling, called Gilgal. There, at the year of transition from the wilderness to the land of promise, Israel observed the Passover of the double seven, 14th day of the first month.

 

A short time later the walls of Jericho opened and fell. This, when Israel, led by seven priests with seven trumpets, finished the circling of Jericho seven times on the seventh day of marching around the perimeter of the city. So Jericho was sealed and shut, but then opened by the operation of patterns of sevens.

 

Belshazzar, king of Babylon, held a great feast, in which occurred the infamous handwriting on the wall, with meaning and purpose sealed and hidden, until Daniel, by God’s inspiration, interpreted the well-known phrase, “Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin.” Scholars have summed the value of this phrase, and determined the words can be equated to the numeric value of 2520, a multiple of seven times 360. But in that same view of number summations, the words also imply that both Babylon of old and Babylon the Great to come are to be divided. That is, by a number equal to 2520/2 = 1,260 days, the half division of seven years.

 

Scholars believe that in the year of the handwriting on the wall, and subsequent fall of Babylon, 539 BC, the first seven times seven weeks (49 years) of the Daniel’s prophetic 70 weeks began. The second temple was dedicated in 515 BC, about 24 years after the sevens began, with the first seven of Daniel’s 70 weeks coming to a close in 490 BC. So, the bookends of Daniel’s 70-weeks prophecy are bound up in a sevens pattern, beginning with seven times seven, then ending, thousands of years later, at the completion of a period of seven years. The latter half or division of seven then leads into 42 months described in Revelation, which includes a time called the Great Tribulation.

 

The northern 10 tribes of ancient Israel were completely conquered by 718 BC. Their loss of birthright was to continue for “seven times more,”- the birthright blessings removed, hidden and sealed, for an implied span of seven times 360, or 2,520 years. Then, finally, for that part of those national blessings pertaining to Manasseh, these began to be restored on the seventh day of the second lunar month 1803, 2,520 years after 718 BC. This (1803) was 1,777 years after Jesus began His ministry in Galilee.

 

It was on that date in 1803 (the lunar 2/07) when the United States, by verbal agreement, acquired the vast land tract of the Louisiana Purchase from France. And it was on that very lunar date, 207 years later, on the 7th of Iyar, 2010, in the 14th year of the Metonic cycle, 2,727 years past the fall of ancient Israel, that the Gulf of Mexico was severely damaged by the massive explosion of the deep water BP oil well and platform. Though details of the ongoing cover-up by BP, the US government and the mass media remain scant, reports continue to surface which indicate that the giant caldera fracture is still leaking, spewing poison into the Gulf of Mexico. These reports do not make front page headlines, but the long-term destruction of this historic disaster is far from over. 

 

But, to continue with more of the events of the sevens, “It is finished,” Jesus said, just before He expired on the cross - the point of consummation. He was “cut off,” divided by the sevens of a covenant oath, and became the blood sacrifice, on the weekday of Wednesday, the half division of the seven (the week). By the pattern of this event, the blood of Jesus’ sacrifice was taken behind the second (2) veil, on the fourth (4th) day of the new covenant (7) fulfillment - the way being symbolically opened when the veil of the temple was rent in two. So here we see yet another pattern of the 2 4 7. Three days and three nights later His resurrection occurred at the end of seven, the weekly Sabbath day. Thus, as explained in the gospel account, when they went to the tomb early Sunday, while it was yet dark, He was NOT there, having been resurrected to Spirit the evening before.

 

Beginning with Nisan 14, His death and resurrection included both the division (Wednesday) and the full cycle of seven (the Sabbath = seven). Moreover, He was resurrected on the 17th of Nisan, but ascended into the heavens on the 27th of Iyar - numbers which exactly correspond with those of the great flood in the days of Noah (i.e. 2/17, 2/27, 7/17, etc.)

 

Late in His earthly ministry, Jesus’ disciples asked, “What will be the sign of your coming and the end (consummation) of the age?” (Mt. 24:3) Jesus gives the pivotal sign (vs. 15), but then explains that the time of the tribulation will be “cut short” or limited.  Tied to other Scriptures, this implies the division or half-week of seven years, a span of 1,260 days (3.5 years).

 

According to Daniel, chapter nine, the end or desolations come at the end of a covenant week (seven). We can link this directly to the time of the seven vials of Revelation, poured out on the heels of the sounding of the seventh trumpet. This time-frame is coincident with the opening of the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony (Rev. 15:5). Then, coming from the very presence of God, behind the symbolic second veil (2), one of the four (4) living creatures hands off to the seven angels the seven (7) vials of the wrath of God, commonly referred to as the seven bowl judgments. Again, we have the pattern numbers, 247, which is a number identified with sevens of the week and the sevens of the seventh month Tishri 1 declarations. Regarding this pattern and the day of Trumpets, the 24th verse of Leviticus 23 aptly applies the pattern. That is, the 24th verse addresses the subject of the seventh month, Tishri 1, day of Trumpets – a sketch of the pattern, 247, which, in that sense, is a parallel to the sevens of the 24th verse of the 70 weeks of Daniel 9.   

 

In Genesis 15, God made (cut off) a covenant with Abraham. The very same Hebrew word is also used in Daniel nine, describing the cutting off of Messiah from His people in the midst of the seven (the week). This “cutting off” or sacrifice is the third part of the covenant process. First comes the terms of covenant, then the agreement, then the sacrifice, then the meal. So covenants, by order of the sevens pattern, typically have four parts. It is amazing then, that the fourth commandment has been called a sign between God and His people, and that the fourth commandment falls on the seventh (covenant) day of the week.

 

The wording of Daniel 9 forms a double imagery of “cutting off,” or division, signifying the blood sacrifice to be made or “cut off” at the half cycle of the seven-day week, Wednesday. This, indeed, is precisely what occurred in 30 AD. If Jesus’ crucifixion took place at the division of the 70th week of Daniel’s prophecy, then Jesus’ death pictured a duality of the pattern. That is, His death came at the half-week, Wednesday, but also at the half of a prophetic week, the half of seven years. In this case, one of the requirements and stated purposes of the 70 weeks, “To make reconciliation for iniquity (sin),” was fulfilled by the shed blood of Sacrifice, which reconciles us to God (Dan. 9:24).

 

Covenants (an oath or seven) are both made and broken by a “cutting off” or sacrifice. In simple terms, this “cutting off” or sacrifice of covenant is an understanding of metaphor, which is symbolic of one pledging his life that the terms of covenant will be kept. Hence, because of sin and covenant breaking, many, throughout the ages, have been cut off from God, and temporarily, for now, remain under the dominion of Satan’s world. The payment for sin and covenant-breaking requires a life sacrifice, of which Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, fulfilled. On repentance, baptism and acceptance of a covenant with God, the price of blood is taken as payment, and reconciliation is accomplished.

 

The sevens imagery bears a direct link to oaths and covenants. It is a blood mark of assurance for blessings that come when the covenant agreement is honored, but is also an indictment against those who dishonor or break the agreement. Thus, Jesus came to proclaim the acceptable year, but also, because of sin and covenant-breaking, He comes a second time with the day of vengeance (Isa. 61:2).

 

In the book of Revelation, the slain Lamb of God, the blood sacrifice of the covenant, brings to court the writ of indictment against mankind, sealed with seven seals. Because of covenant breaking, and the rebellion of earth’s civilizations, by the opening of the seven seals, punishment is then measured out in the pattern, “seven times more.”

 

During the time setting of the Revelation, to make the sentence even more profound, the heavens are shaken, apparently altering time itself, so that months and years become a division of seven, at the half of seven or three and one-half years, a span represented by 1,260 days. Thus, each month is assigned 30 days, for an annual period of 12 x 30 = 360 days.

 

We have no way of knowing the exact periods of the lunar cycles for all periods of the history of planet earth. At times it appears months were 29.53 days, as is now the case, while there may be times, for prophetic reasons, that God assigns lunar years of 360 days. This is a speculative assumption, of which we cannot now speak with any certainty.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 16

 

 

THE ROAD BUILDERS

 

Pont, Pilate, Pontiff, Pilatus

The Feit and the Counter Feit

Laodice of Pontus (3 ½ + 3 ½ = 7)

 

The apostle John, more so than the rest, seems to have been acutely focused on the subject of truth. "Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice," Jesus said to Pilate. "What is truth?" the Pontiff Pilatus replied, (Jn. 18:37-38). Of the four gospel accounts, John alone mentions this short exchange between Jesus and the Roman governor, Pontius Pilate.

 

There are many things, though not specified or defined in detail, that, by the association of names, places and events, become quite coincidentally suspicious and interesting. Satan, it seems, has a counterfeit for just about every aspect of God and His works.

 

The word, Pont or Pons has to do with paving the way, clearing out the path, building roads and bridges, etc. In that light, the Pont, road maker and messenger, John the Baptist, came preaching and baptizing. He was preparing the way, making the roads straight for his first cousin, Jesus the Christ.

 

"Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, who will prepare Your way before You. The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord; make His paths (roads and bridges) straight,” (Mk. 1:1-3 & Mal. 3:1).

 

But, coincident with that time, in that very same year of 26 AD, another pontiff, another builder of roads arrived on the scene. His name, from the family, Pontii, apparently derived from the ancient days of the Greek Pontus, was Pontius Pilatus (Pilate). Before, in the ages of antiquity, a legendary queen had ruled the Pontus. Her name was Loadice, from which comes the place name and seventh church of the New Testament age, Laodicea. By analogy, Laodicea, the seventh and remnant church, in her latter phase of a 3 ½ year span of time, passes into and through the Great Tribulation.

 

But the Pontiff of Jerusalem, Pilate, in his domain as Prefect, began to rule at the very juncture of the beginning of the acts of John the Baptist and subsequent ministry of Jesus Christ. Then about 3 ½ years later, at the end of His physical ministry, in the fall of 26 AD, Jesus stood before the face of the Pontiff, to disarm principalities and powers. Paul makes reference to this event in his epistle to the Colossians. Jesus was no worshiper of angels, which doctrine had made its way into the church at Colossae. Rather, in triumph over all power of deities and men, including Satan, and the Prefect, Pilate, Jesus made a public spectacle of all (Col. 2:15).

 

In ancient Rome, there were so many gods and goddesses that it became necessary that a premiere conclave of supervisory priests (pontiffs) should manage the combined worship and procedures of their many icons, rituals and temples of idolatrous worship.

 

This oversight fell to the college of the pontiffs. The chief pontiff of Rome was called the Pontifex Maximus. Near his residence was the monastery or convent of the 18 virgin priestesses who served the goddess, Vesta. And, of these virgin priestesses, one was premiere.

 

This supreme priestess of the virgin order was revered as the Great Mother. In other cultures this Great Mother goddess was called Cybele, Ishtar, Diana, etc. The male priests of Cybele’s temple were the celibate order of the Galli. They were celibate, because to enter the order any male must first be castrated - a ritual of tradition that was often performed under the evergreen groves.

 

Spread throughout the many cultures of this religious concept was the element of sexual orientation. Again, this included virgin priestesses, who lived in convents. And, coupled with these orders or administrations of Diocese were also the male priests, who were celibate.

 

The privileged office, with all rites and duties of the Maximus, was later transferred to the Caesars, and continued down through the era of Constantine. In 381 AD the title, with all rights and customs, was transferred to the popes of the Roman church.

 

Now, among the main responsibilities of the Maximus was control of the CALENDAR of the vast Roman Empire. The Maximus was an observer and chronicler of times and signs. He noted these signs and omens, with any outcome of historical significance recorded for posterity. In this function, he was, in a sense, a type of seer or prophet of the populace. This maintenance of a calendar, motivated primarily by dates and days of worship, continued under the stewardship of the Maximus, down to the days of the Gregorian calendar of the Maximus, Gregory. Of course, that oversight of calendar still stands, and though society does not stop to realize it, the same authority yet remains, under the administration of Francis I, the current Pontifex Maximus.

 

So it should then be no great surprise that in the lunar year 312/13 AD, the man who became the warrior of triumph at the famous Milvian Bridge (pont), after his successes, and having taken the title of Pontifex Maximus, should later convene a conclave at Nicea. Under his oversight at Nicea, among other things to consider and modify were the dates of religious worship. With these modifications, he replaced commandments which were once God-breathed in the Scriptures - commandments foundational to the very church founded by Jesus Christ!

 

Constantine became the Maximus, and among other things, he was head of the calendar court. So it was his assumed right to change times and laws. This, he had already begun

 

to do just a few years before the Council of Nicea, with his edict of changing the weekly Sabbath observance of Saturday to Sunday.

 

But Jesus, centuries before, at the end of the Pontus Laodice span of His 3 ½ years ministry, stood before the Pontius, explaining that He came to bear witness of the truth. That chapter came to a close, but, in type, another 3 ½ years of the Pontus Laodice remains. That time, when it comes, will be the final years of the seventh church age, Laodicea, queen of the Pontus.

 

The prophet Daniel, of the royal line of Judah, was taken captive and made celibate by his captors. That is, he was a eunuch. God revealed to Daniel the events of the latter days. In these prophecies is a thread of time which connects the end to the beginning, thus completing the circle of the sevens. When this final and conclusive act comes, it will be a flood of prophetic events unequaled in all of human history.  

 

For every truth there is a lie. For every “feit” (genuine article) there is a counterfeit. The end time Elijah, the next John the Baptist, messenger and road builder, will one day come, in concert with the 1,260-day finale of Laodicea, in the context of Revelation. This Elijah pontiff (road builder), coming at the end of days, will make straight a highway for the second coming of Jesus Christ.

 

 

The Lunar Clock of Time

 

The seventh month mark of time (day of Trumpets) determines all other dates of the lunar calendar, which forms the only map of time chronology ever used in the Scriptures. Scholars throughout the ages have understood that the solar calendar of the Roman world was never used to mark any event of the Biblical record. This being the case, the Gregorian calendar is not in any way relative to the Christianity of the Bible.

 

This being the case, it should be no great surprise that man has long since forgotten the Appointed Times of God, declared by the music of the lunar calendar, preferring rather the solar dates derived from the religions of the Occult, dating from ancient times, now thousands of years ago.

 

Paul warned the church at Galatia (the Celts) about the observation of the Occult holidays (Gal. 4:10). For the most part, his warning fell on deaf ears. The merchandising and celebration of these seasonal events, now some 2,000 years later, have grown to form a large part of the world’s economic system.

 

So widespread and embedded are the tentacles of these practices that any disruption of the solar observations of the Occult would send the global economy into a tailspin, expanding the small event of Acts 19:27 of the first century AD to a worldwide scale. It is no exaggeration to conclude that a large portion of world commerce has become directly tied to the traditions of the Occult times. Take the celebration of these times away and our economic system becomes severely damaged. 

Given the world’s universal state of blindness, it is no wonder that Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God of the 14th  Passover - the slain Lamb with the seven horns and seven eyes (7 + 7 = 14), is the only Being qualified to open the scroll of the seven seals of Revelation. Jesus of Judah, the Man with the key of David, is the only One capable of turning the pages of the sealed score sheets of the seven-string octaves. He alone can open the mysteries of the courses of the sevens of prophecy.

 

“I will open my riddle (dark saying) on the harp,” wrote the psalmist of Psalms 49:4. This number is the harmonic double of the 247-year, Joseph cycle of the calculated lunar calendar, the octave double of the middle C register, note B of the diatonic scale (B = 247 hertz = 2 x 247 = 49:4).

 

Psalm 49:4, a statement little noticed, is a key verse, and layered within its octave spans of symmetry lies many pieces of the mysterious sevens of Scripture, a science and imagery which parallels the seven-note diatonic scale of the Psalms of the temple service of old. This is a prophetic score sheet, set to explode in the crescendo of our modern age.

 

At the very least, it can be said that in the times of the 44th prince of these United States of America, we were in the midst of a very serious transition in world history. We had never experienced anything quite like that before. It was truly an age of transformation.

 

At this writing, in 2015, The Clinton political machine was still reeling from the blindsided mishap that allowed Barack Obama to take the nomination at the 11th hour of the contest, in May of 2008. As one commentator stated, the Clintons are still trying to figure out what happened. By a set of bizarre political circumstances, Obama was given the green light to the presidency. He was effectively chosen by a double set of 27 votes on the 27th day of Iyar, 2008, Jerusalem time. In that year, the decisive votes came just hours into the ancient time setting of the eighth course of Abia.

 

No human mind can tell us just what is taking place, and God has not revealed the purpose or direction of this and other very strange events now prominent on the front page of world news. And be assured, lacking any serious belief that God controls world events, such things are never going to be explained by the most brilliant minds of media and journalism. Nonetheless, these are glaring facts of historical record, current and ongoing.

 

In the sense of parallel to the trumpet blowing of Psalm 81 and Revelation 8:1, by the beginning of the 2010/11 lunar year, we had passed the end of the 81st year since the great economic crash of 1929, a span of time which is the third multiple of the number 27. The lunar year of 2010/11 was an historic time of turbulence and transition. The year 2010 AD, was year 2727 since the fall of ancient Israel, 718 BC, and was the14th year of the Metonic cycle, which began in 1997.  And in that year of 2010/11 the United States plunged ever deeper into a cycle of astronomical debt from which there is no possibility of recovery.

 

 

Added to these parallels of the double seven coincidence, the Trumpet dates of the 10 years, beginning with the day of Trumpets, marking the lunar year 2010/11 (year 2727), are formed in a rare, mysterious pattern, one not seen since the end of the Seven Years War of 1763. This is a pattern so rare as to exclude any declaration of the Day of Trumpets on the seventh day of the week for entire span of 10 consecutive years.  

 

Every 247 years the lunar declaration of the Day of Trumpets, the first day of the seventh lunar month, Tishri, repeats on the very same day of the week (the sevens) 98% of the time, missing by only 905 parts on the lunar clock, as compared to 247 lunar years previous. By analogy of numbers, the 905 parts are the second purpose of Daniel’s prophecy of the sevens (i.e. weeks). This, by Daniel’s statement of Daniel 9:05, which was, “we have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even departing from Your precepts, and Your judgments” This invokes the requirement, “To make reconciliation for iniquity.” (Dan. 9:24).

 

We might conclude that such things are just an exaggeration of coincidence, but consider further that in the context of reconciliation, the digit sum of the 905 parts is 9 + 0 + 5 + 14, the Passover which reconciles us to God the Father. And, the offset or remainder of the 905 parts, to complete a full hour of 1,080 parts, is 1,080 - 905 = 175 years, the lifespan of the father of the faithful, Abraham. On average, for the 247-year spans, with the 905 parts time discrepancy, time is reconciled (adjusted) 4.94 times for every 247-year period. This (494) is the double of 247, and the number of the harp psalm of riddle and mystery, Psalm 49:4. Thus is aptly stated, at Daniel verse 24 of the sevens of prophecy, “Sevens (of weeks) are determined for your people.” (Dan.9:24). For the full span of the 490 years or 70 sevens, exactly 9.8 years of the 490 are reconciled (time corrected) by adjusting the day of the weeks for the declaration of the seventh month, Tishri. This agrees with the fact that 98% of the sevens of the 247-year cycles are not reconciled, since they are on time, calculated and falling on the same day of the weekly cycle, 98% of the time, a sum of 9 + 8 = 17.   

 

In lunar calendar time, the 905 parts (50.28 min.) of the 247-year shortfall, rounded off to the nearest whole number, equates to about 3017 seconds, an exact multiple of sevens. The number 3,017 displays the age of Joseph when he became Prime Minister of Egypt (age 30) and his age of captivity (age 17). Also, 3,017 sums to 11, Joseph‘s number by order of birth of the sons of Israel. Eleven is also the common denominator the diatonic scale of the music of the harp of the Psalms.

 

The number 247 is the middle C, fourth octave note B of the diatonic scale. In the sense of analogy, this second note (B) of the 247-year scale of time, in both calendar discrepancy and in sins of iniquity, all must be reconciled. So, this is the second stated purpose of the prophecy of the 70 weeks (to reconcile). And according to the theoretical mathematics, by reverse engineering of the lunar calendar fractured cycle of 29.5305941 days, B or Monday of the seven-day note pattern was the seventh month lunar new year day (Monday) of year 1H of the calculated calendar, 3761 BC. This is the theoretical, mathematical point from which all lunar calendar time is derived. This is the second day of the week (Monday), the equivalent of the musical tone B note, 247, the number of years that Israel remained in Egypt, after Joseph became second in command over the nation. 

 

The year 3761 BC is, of course, a mathematical and theoretical point in time derived from the lunar molad (average) of 29 days 12 hours and 793 parts. Mathematicians have reverse-engineered the lunar cycle number of 29.5305941 days to find the original moladot and timeline, which, by this lunar number, occurred on Sunday night (Monday), in the year 3761 BC.

 

There would be no way to actually validate that Monday, second day of the sevens, was the anniversary day of year 1H of the year of creation, since time in our universe and heavens, in all probability, may not have been constant since the beginning of the history of mankind. There have surely been some time wobbles since the days of Adam and Eve.

 

Astronomers have determined that the current lunar cycle is known to be 29 days 12 hours 44 minutes and 2.7 seconds, which may or may not have always been the exact figure since the days of the Genesis account. However, many artifacts of archeology seem to indicate a knowledge of the 19-year time cycle, going back thousands of years before the time of Christ. So, if not an exact constant, it was likely something close to the current cycle, otherwise the evidence of the 19-year Metonic could not exist in ancient history. Based on this supposition, lunar calculations appear to confirm that the great flood of Noah’s day was a 13 month leap year, an exact multiple of 55 sevens, or a span of 385 days (2369/68 BC).

 

The full cycle of the calculated lunar calendar is said to run for 689,472 years before repeating the exact pinpoint in time (moladot), on the same day of the week. This, at the same time of day, and on the same year of the Metonic cycle, as compared to year 1H, 3761 BC. Note that the full 689,472 Hebrew calendar lunar cycle, divided by the 19-year Metonic = 36288, and sums to 3 + 6 + 2 + 8 + 8 = two-seven. This numeric sequence, 36288, forms the segments of a circle, which is 36, followed by two sets of 144 + 144 = 288. This pair of the 144 patterns can be found in the single and double sevens of Revelation, chapters 7 and 14. It is also the total number (288) of the Levitical singers and musicians of the 24 courses of the temple service.

 

Again, Joseph was 30 years old when he stood before Pharaoh, some 247 years before the exodus of Israel out of Egypt (see Carl Franklin’s “Chronology of Biblical History”). Joseph’s 30th year was 1734 BC, the 14th year of that Metonic cycle, a lunar leap year of 13 months, and one of 385 days, an exact multiple of sevens (7 x 55 = 385 days). It was at that season when Joseph came to understand, by the two-sevens pattern of the double seven dreams of Pharaoh, that when a matter is repeated twice it is a sign of things to come, events which God shall bring to pass (Gen. 41:32).

 

Pharaoh’s dreams disclosed and predicted the familiar account of the double seven sets of 14 years, formed first by seven years of plenty, followed by seven years of famine. The latter seven years began when Joseph was 37.

 

But, Joseph’s days in Egypt began when he was seventeen, and reached a marked point in history 27 years later, when he came to the end of the seven years of famine at the age of 44.  Joseph, of course, came to Egypt as a result of being betrayed by 10 of his brothers, at the age of 17, the sum being 10 + 17 = twenty-seven.

 

 

The Sons of Joseph

 

Now, in the first seven years of Joseph’s 14-year feast-famine experience in Egypt, two sons were born to him by his wife, Asenath daughter of the priest of On. These two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, were of a mixed race, Black and Caucasian, and were later adopted by Joseph’s father, Jacob, as the 13th and 14th tribes of Israel (13 + 14 = 27).

 

Though the birthright was split by a high and low branch, it was jointly bequeathed to both adopted sons - an inheritance which they squabble over to this very day. As long as Joseph lived, by the adoption of his two sons by father Jacob, the sum of all the sons of Jacob became a double seven (14), and to the double seven (14th) son, Ephraim, the younger, was given the highest branch of the national birthright of blessings. 

 

Near death, Jacob, in his 147th year of life, in the first 27 verses of Genesis 49, foretold what would become of the modern generations of his sons in the end of days. These words were recorded more than 3,700 years ago, and the prophecies which Jacob declared will finally come full course, as described in the pages of the 27th New Testament book, the 49th book of the Bible, Revelation.

 

 

Treaty of Paris, 1763

 

The end of the Seven Years War and the Treaty of Paris, 1763, was an important transition in world history. That year of 1763 was 247 years previous to the 14th year of the Metonic cycle, which 247-year anniversary was the Day of Trumpets, the first day of Tishri, 2010 AD. That date was the beginning of year 2727 from 718 BC. Many historians refer to the year 1763 and the Treaty of Paris as the year of the birth of the British Empire.

 

If so, this is a fitting date for that “birth,” as in 1763 was ceded to Britain, by treaty agreement, much of what is now the eastern United States, major parts of Canada, and the right to develop and merchandise the continent of India. The treaty forged both the cultures and boundaries of the trans-nations of the North Atlantic, relationships which continue in the present age.

 

In that year of 1763, Florida, now our 27th key state, through which passes the 27th parallel north, was ceded to Britain by Spain. Florida played a key role in the election decisions process which resulted in determining the men who would serve as the 43rd and 44th US presidents. Florida also served as a springboard to the election of number 42, Bill Clinton. These are simple facts of history, and we may yet see more historical events pivoting on our key, 27th state, Florida and/or the 27th parallel north meridian. Such things fall within the realm of opinion and speculation, yet it is more than obvious that the number 27 often appears in the prophetic events and patterns of the Bible.   

 

We mentioned previously the odd Trumpet cluster cloud patterns of the current decade, which curiously resemble the chapter and verse layout of the 17th book of the Old Testament, Jeremiah’s Lamentations. That is, the verse chapter pattern is 4-4-1-4-4, which sums to 17. It is said that the prophet Jeremiah wrote Lamentations after the death of the righteous king, Josiah, at which time came the second 19-year cycle span of 6,942 days ever recorded in human history. Note the curious pattern of the numbers contained in 6942. It bears the 69 weeks, which is the sum of the first two segments of Daniel’s 70 weeks prophecy, followed by the 42 months or 1,260 day portion of week 70. The Passover bookends, by days of the week, of the beginning-end years of a 6,942-day Metonic cycle is always 4-2 (Wednesday-Monday). Also, the numbers 6,942 sum to 21, which is the total of the three tier seven pattern of the seals, trumpets and vials of Revelation. The patterns of the chapter-verse progression of lamentations we shall try to explain in the sense of musical symmetry, since the book was a dirge (lament), to be performed in the temple. 

 

Beginning with 1763, which is 247 years previous to 2010 AD, the pattern blasts of the Day of Trumpets declarations of the seventh lunar month, the month which marks the beginning of the lunar civil year (lunar date 7/1), formed some very unusual cluster patterns, as if heralding important events to come.

 

In our time, beginning with year 2727 (2010/11), counting from 718 BC, this very same pattern of 1763 is again active, for the first time since the year of the Treaty of Paris. The fall, 2015 began the sixth year of this 10-year day of Trumpets cloud pattern. That is, 55255-22522, for the 10 years.

 

For this particular timeline of the 247-year periods, beginning with the 14th (double seven) year of the Metonic, 2010 AD, the pattern of the double image Trumpets declaration clouds occurred for the first time ever in 1763, and never before on the 14th year of the 19- year time cycle in the 2,000 year history of the New Testament era.

 

This is fairly astounding, and, as of this writing, we are now in the second generation of this unique pattern of the 247-year, B note periods. And it is equally amazing that although 61% of all lunar dates are adjusted at the first day of the seventh month, Tishri, no adjustment whatsoever to this particular 247-year cycle timeline of the present Metonic (beginning 1997) has ever been made since BEFORE the time of Abraham!

 

The last adjustment to the Day of Trumpets on the 247-year cycles, at the beginning year of the current Metonic, 1997 AD, occurred 2203 BC! That was 4,199 years previous to the current Metonic, which began year one in 1997. According to the calculations of the lunar cycles, we are indeed alive at the time of a unique chapter in recorded history. 

 So, these patterns of the Trumpet clouds are quite rare, and even more so when two such cluster declarations are formed one after the other, the latter cloud of five years being a mirror image of the first set of five. The patterns, beginning 1763 and 2010, separated by 247 years, are identical, each being void of a declaration of Tishri 1 on the week day of Saturday for 10 full years. So, this

247-year pattern is again active, beginning Tishri 1, 2010, on the double image year of 2727, since Assyria’s conquest of Israel was completed, 718 BC.

 

The patterns of the current 10-year day of Trumpets clouds are a form of 2 4 7. That is, beginning in 2010, the Tishri declarations for the next 10 years are 55255, followed by 22522. These are a double set and each duplicates the pattern, by the elements of 2 4 7. That is, in the first set, a two (2) is surrounded by four (4) fives, and the sum of those numbers that are different is 2 + 5 = 7. Therefore, we have the pattern, 2 4 7. In the second pattern, the same elements appear, which form in different ways, 2 4 7. So, it is a back-to-back double set, B note of 247 + 247 = Psalm 49:4.

 

Saturday, the seventh day, is declared on average for the first day of the lunar civil year two-sevenths of the time, but mysteriously, for the 10-year span quoted, a declaration on the seventh day of the week never once appears, voiding for 10 consecutive years the often prophetic pattern of a Wednesday 14th Passover, followed by the day of Trumpets on Saturday in the same year. Such was the Wednesday-Saturday half-octave pattern (4-7) for both the year of the exodus and the year of Jesus’ crucifixion.

 

The Seven Years War, also known as the French and Indian War, generated a huge debt for Britain, which was one reason she begin to lay a heavier tax burden on the American colonies. This decision eventually resulted in the War of the Revolution, in 1776; only 13 years after the Seven Years War had ended.

 

Forty years after 1763, the US, the symbolic Manasseh of modern history, virtually doubled in geographical size, with the acquisition of the Louisiana Purchase of 1803, 2520 years after the temporary loss of Joseph’s birthright, 718 BC. That year of 718 BC was only eight years before the sun in the heavens retreated by 10 degrees (10 hours), in the days of Hezekiah, king of Judah. This event in Hezekiah’s day occurred near the Passover season of 710 BC.

 

One dark event of the 207th anniversary of the Treaty of New Orleans fell on the lunar 2/7 of 2010 AD. In the gulf region, not far removed from the 27th parallel north, that event was the tragic BP oil explosion, which sadly crippled the ecology of the Gulf of Mexico’s shoreline states, sending toxic waste via ocean currents to much of the Gulf of Mexico and the waterways of the north Atlantic current.

 

The aftermath of that disaster, much covered up and little reported on by the media in recent history, along with the greater tragedy of the tsunami and nuclear power plant meltdowns in Japan, is still ongoing, altering weather cycles, while polluting the waterways and shorelines of planet earth.

 

July 2011 AD was year 235 since the revolution of 1776, one year for every month of the 19-year Metonic cycle. That is, 235 months equals 19 years, a point in time when the moon and sun, within roughly two hours proximity, return to the same orbital relationship compared to 235 months previous.

 

Based on the pattern interlace of the C major scale, this 235-month span consists of 12 common years of 12 months each, and seven lunar leap years of 13 months. The average length of this 235 month Metonic cycle is about 6,939 days, a number which sums to 27.

 

Joseph understood the imagery of the double sets of the double sevens, and now these patterns are upon us in ways we could never imagine.

 

And so it was that in the year of Joseph’s age of 37, the seven years of plenty came to an end, but in the second year of famine, there were yet five more years to go when Jacob moved to Goshen (Gen. 45:6). Joseph was then 39 years old.

 

Thus, in the record of the chronology of the seven years of famine, the division is 2 + 5 = seven, the same as the full and half notes of the diatonic scale of the harp. And in the account of Revelation 17:10 (17 + 10 = 27), “five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come.” Here too, we find yet more of the prophetic imagery where five + two = seven, forming the whole and half notes of the diatonic scale of the strings.

 

But, again, the Psalmist said, “I will open my riddle on the harp.” (Ps. 49:4). The harp, like many instruments of the western culture, operates on the musical scale of 5 + 2 = seven notes. Five of the seven notes are whole steps, with two notes, Monday and Thursday (i.e. 2-5 = BE) of the seven being formed by halves or divided increments. In the key of A, BE is equated to the sequence, 2-5, but in the key of C, the notes of EB change to 3-7. Hence, depending on the key, B is 2, or B can be a seven. So, the world prince and coming beast power of Daniel 9:27 makes a covenant (seven) with many for a week. And since his half-week is 3.5 years, then that added to Daniel’s 490 years is 490 + 3.5 = 493.5, or 494 years, rounded off to the nearest whole year. This, of course, is a double of 247, or Psalm 49:4. Surely we would have to be blind not to see, in all of this, the creative genius of Godly design. These number combinations of the Scriptures, prophecy, time calculations and music are all parts of a matched pattern and set that far exceeds the witness proof requirement of two or more.

 

But laying the number confusion aside, the point is that the chapter/verse pattern of the book of Lamentations, for the five chapters, forms a similar cloud or cluster configuration, with the left and right bands being doubled. The five chapters of Lamentations, by verse numbering, forms the cluster pattern 22-22-66-22-22. What does it mean? There’s no way to draw a conclusion, of course, but these patterns of Lamentations and the Tishri 1 cluster clouds have similarities which quite curiously replicate in a musical fashion of chords.

 

 

 

Now, if middle C be taken as a circle, which value is 264, the diameter is then 84 months, or seven years (2,520 days), and the half period or circle radius becomes forty and two months, or 1,260 days. Hence, in the pattern imagery, year 2727 (2010 AD) comes at the point of 247 (B), past 1763, and adding 17 years advances time to 2026/27 AD, the 264th year (middle C) since the birth of the British Empire, 1763.

 

Beginning 2010 AD, there are 10 years of the Trumpet cluster patterns (2010-2019) + seven more years, leading to the lunar year 2026/27 AD. So it would seem that the world may now have entered a time of epic transition, of such scale and proportion as has never been witnessed since the time of the great deluge of Noah’s day. No predictions are being made here, just some really curious patterns to be aware of.

 

These symmetrical elements of the seven circle are quite obvious in the current Trumpet clusters of 5-5-2-5-5, and the mirror image, 2-2-5-2-2, which began September 14, 2015. The 10-year sum is then, 55255 + 22522 = 77777.

 

In the first cluster, if we take the numbers that are different and add them together we have 5 + 2 = seven. Then, in the second cluster, adding the numbers that are different = 2 + 5 = seven. So, for the double cluster we have 7 + 7 = 2 x 7 = 14th, the same as that year of the Metonic on which the current clusters began, late summer, 2010. This is the very same year of the Metonic (14th) when Joseph was taken from prison to stand before Pharaoh of Egypt, and the same year of the Metonic when Jesus was born, 5 BC.

 

Jewish historians tell us this event, which took place in the 30th year of Joseph’s life, was on the Day of Trumpets (1734 BC), and it was on this day that Joseph explained Pharaoh’s mysterious dreams of the two sets of two sevens. But now, thousands of years later, we come to the age and approximate time of the rest of the story.

 

So, 10 years of trumpet blasts are clustered in a double cloud formation, and we may well be in the general period of time when  the yet to be revealed ten horns and seven-headed Beast of the 27th Book may be preparing his eventual rise to power. But it seems likely there are still some years to go before that day arrives.

 

As of this writing, the power of the king of the south has not yet formed, a third temple has not been built, and though edging closer, the timeline of the completion of Daniel’s week 70 has not yet begun. So only God knows what lies ahead in our immediate future. Simply stated, it appears that the world is approaching a very turbulent age.

 

It is worth mentioning again that Joseph understood from the double dreams of the double sevens that when things are repeated (doubled), it is an indication that events are being allowed and/or controlled by God Himself (Gen. 41:32).

 

Accompanying the current 10 Trumpets cloud patterns of 5-5-2-5-5 and 2-2-5-2-2, which began in 2010, in the midst we also find four blood moons and four solar eclipses, during the Passover and Feast of Tabernacles seasons of 2014 and 2015 AD. The tables of astronomy list similar patterns in the eclipse cycles for the years of the birth of the modern state of Israel, 1948/49, and during the time of the six-day war, in 1967/68 AD. Is there something to be made of this phenomenon? We have no sure conclusion, other than to say that the timing of these astronomical events is definitely something to watch and consider.

 

Similar to the current eclipse patterns, astronomers have recorded these same patterns of eclipse cycles, beginning with the birth of Jesus Christ. At that time, beginning with the year 5 BC, there was a single Trumpet cloud, with pattern, 7-7-3-7-7, beginning with the first day of the lunar year for five consecutive years.

 

On average these Trumpet clouds appear about two times per century. But in the troubled Metonic cycle of 1997-2016 all three types of these cloud formations have appeared, stretching into the beginning years of the subsequent Metonic cycle. The total span of the three patterns, which began in 1999, is a multiple of sevens, or 21 years. The three patterns of the Trumpet clouds are 77377, 55255 and 22522. The numbers that are different sum to 10 + 7 = 17. In the 247-year Metonic cycle beginning 1750, these patterns ushered in a time of blessing and expansion for Britain and the Americas. Now, these same Trumpet clouds appear to be harbingers of portent and cursing.

 

So these are unusual times, with unusual events in the patterns and signs in the heavens. And, in the very midst of the current, mirror image double clusters of the Trumpet clouds, at the exact interval between the two five-year clusters, entered front stage, a politician of German Bavarian descent (Drumpf), with the unlikely, but timely name of Donald Trump(et)!

 

His grandfather, Fredrick Drumpf, changed the original spelling of the family name, but considering the timing of the rare and current clouds of the double eclipse, day of Trumpets, Tishri 1 clusters, this is quite amazing to say the least! Trump calls himself a “builder,” a name strangely synonymous with the builders of the Pontus (i.e. road builder), from which comes the title, Pontiff. Laodice ruled over the kingdom of the Pontus, and in the age of her namesake, Laodicea, the builders have constructed a world of wealth, never realizing that it is bankrupt, blind and naked system, on the verge of total collapse. Again, no predictions, but it will be interesting to see where this bizarre timing of the Trump leads.

By the fall of 2026/27 AD we will have reached the anniversary number of year 2000 since the beginning of Jesus’ ministry, a ministry which spanned 44 months and 4 days, from Atonement 26 AD to the 14th of Nisan, 30 AD, the Passover of His death.

 

Jesus departed into the heavens on the lunar 2/27 (Iyar), 30 AD, 45 months and 17 days after His ministry began. At that time He ascended from the Mount of Olives on the very same day of the lunar calendar that Noah stepped from the ark onto the dry ground of earth, following the great deluge of that historic time. That date, according to Genesis 8:14, was Iyar 27th, or 2/27.

 

At the beginning of His ministry, Jesus fled into the wilderness of the goat, about the 10th day of the seventh month, then ascended from the Mount of Olives on the 27th of Iyar, more than 3.5 years later, the difference being Iyar 27 - Tishri 10 = 17, and likewise 10 + 17 = two-seven.

 

Noah and his family were in the Ark for one year and 10 days, dating from Iyar 2/17 the previous year, leaving the Ark on the lunar, 2/27 of 2368 BC. Iyar, the second lunar month, seems to be one of those historic months of Biblical chronology, a month still very active in the modern age.

 

 

 

 

 

The Gulf of Mexico, having been severely damaged by the explosion and subsequent oil spill, beginning on the lunar 2/7 of the month, Iyar, 2010 (year 2727), preceded by the assault of Katrina in 2005, was later joined in 2011 by the epic flooding of homes, businesses and croplands of the Mississippi region, little more than 207 years since the Louisiana Purchase of 1803.

 

As if planned, what was left of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, following the aftermath of Katrina and the poisoned Gulf and inland waterways of the oil sludge of 2010, in 2011 was topped off by drought, intense heat and forest fires, combined with the destruction of croplands, centers of economic activity and food production in many states of that region.

 

In 2012 this drought and devastation spread to the west and mid- west, step by step bringing all of the US under a curse. Then, in 2013, drought and record forest fires blanketed the western United States, with ongoing floods on the eastern slope of the Rockies, so terrible as to be referred to as Colorado’s Katrina. Colorado is, by the way, part of the original Louisiana Purchase of 1803. To the west of Colorado, in the summer of 2015, several western states were ravaged by drought and forest fires.

 

The potential for the national wealth of the United States increased greatly with the Louisiana Purchase. This came about first by verbal agreement during the very week of the lunar 2/7, 1803. This was exactly 2,520 years after the fall of the ancient 10 northern tribes of Israel, 718 BC. Year 2727 (2010 AD) from that date of antiquity was the 207th anniversary of the Louisiana Purchase.

 

This land purchase was a springboard of immense blessings, providing for the growth and expanding wealth and populace of these United States. Now, however, more and more it has become a landmark region of gloom, ravaged by hurricanes, oil spills, tornadoes, floods and drought. Only God knows what is coming next.

 

In past history, many times America was protected from many of the tragedies that the rest of the world has suffered. Those days appear to be gone. Increasingly and especially since the lunar 2/7 of 2010, the lower Mississippi Delta region, extending northward from the gulf of Mexico, up through middle America, has been under a systematic curse, coming from many directions. Several states of New England, foundational to the birth of our nation, 1776, have also suffered major damage, due to storms and hurricanes.

 

Many, if not most populated regions, whose land masses and waterways touch the bounds of the 27th parallel north, east and west, are suffering from war and various disasters. From Bahrain, Egypt and Libya, and westward to the gulf of Mexico and Texas-vast areas writhe with the fires, wars, unrest, storms, turmoil, drought, oil spills and destruction, spreading east, west, north and south from the 27th meridian.

 

It is as if this 27th-line north parallel, passing through the chemical wastelands of the Gulf of Mexico and the 27th state, Florida, has been set ablaze, with wars, toxins and unrest, from North Africa, Egypt, the Suez. Then, stretching westward through the gulf waters of Iran, along the same 27th north meridian, troubles continually brews. Along this meridian region, our 44th president gave an historic speech in Egypt. Some journalists referred to that event and time as the Arab spring, and it has been said, regarding the current unrest in the Middle East, that Egypt is where it all began.

 

Both man and wildlife along the gulf region of the Mississippi delta have suffered serious health issues due to toxins in the waterways. Meanwhile, agents of the US and other governments continue to cover up the far-from-over disaster, virtually prohibiting media coverage of the unfortunate aftermath of the BP oil tragedy, still affecting long term, the north Atlantic current, all the way to Europe.

 

Farther north, across the Pacific, in the year 2011, Japan suffered an incredible 9.0 earthquake that was followed by a super- destructive tsunami. The result was the subsequent radiation leaks from the level-seven meltdown of several nuclear power plants on their north eastern coastline.

 

In 2015, the radiation levels from that disaster continued to bombard the oceans and shorelines of earth, with plutonium and other radioactive toxins seeping into the Pacific, making way via the Japanese current to the shores of Alaska and the west coast regions of the northwestern United States. Consequences to the health of man, beast and ocean life, over the years, may become considerable, with unknown consequences to the environment for decades to come.

 

Meanwhile, the global debt clock ticks on, awaiting an unavoidable economic meltdown worldwide at some point in our future. On every front, the double-seven imagery, especially pivoting on and beginning in earnest with the Trumpet clouds of  the year 2727 (2010 AD), is unparalleled in modern history.

 

Just north of the 27th meridian lies Ur of the Chaldees, the Iraq of the 2003 UN invasion and occupation, beginning on the weekend of Eshter’s Adar and Purim.

 

The opening headlines of today’s world news actually began in Egypt more than 3,700 years ago, and now it appears that we are approaching a new level of the plateau, perhaps the age of the final chapter. If so, then we have come to the opening note of the highest octave pitch-the last cycle register, edging ever closer to the time and completion of Daniel’s week 70.

 

The chronology of certain marked points in the years of the life of the patriarch, Joseph, was the original prototype of what we now see emerging on the world horizon. Now, in our day, the pattern and comet circle, originally scripted in Joseph’s day, comes again.

 

The flash point that occurred in Egypt, a nation of the 27th parallel, is the time and event that may well be remembered as the torch that ignited the final decades of the end of the age. At the time of Egypt’s initial unrest, it was reported that a strange earthquake rumbled under the Suez for a period of 27 minutes. With the arrival of ISIS in 2013, Egypt and other regions in the Middle East continue to implode and self-destruct.

The Joseph Cycles

(His calendar and Prophetic Muse)

 

Now the patriarch, Joseph, was falsely accused and imprisoned, about age 27. Then, because of a set of dreams and circumstances, he stood before Pharaoh at age 30, when he summoned to interpret a double set of Pharaoh’s dreams of the double sevens. Joseph perceived from Pharaoh’s dreams of the double patterns of the double sevens, that when important events occur in doubles it is an indication of influence from the spirit realm, actions allowed and/or directed by God (Genesis 41:32).

 

Again, in type, Joseph’s experience in Egypt was a microcosm of our day. This moment in world history, for the present age, began more than 3,700 years ago in a nation called Egypt, about 1727 BC. In Biblical terminology, this period of Joseph‘s life, in finite pattern form, included the pre-type of what has been called “the time of Jacob’s trouble,” a time that is obviously approaching, as witnessed by the flood of events currently taking place all over planet earth. No man knows the day or the hour, but the leaves on the tree strongly indicate we are nearing a season, uncharted and epic in proportion.

 

The setup for the events of that ancient period in history, which now parallels the news of our present day, actually began in 1747 BC, when Jacob’s son Joseph, at age 17, was sold into slavery, beginning a 27-year span of his life, which ended with the close of the seven-year Egyptian famine, when Joseph was 44 - the same as the number of US president Barack Obama.

 

A circle of 44, the sixth note of the harp scale (44 hertz = F) has a diameter of two sevens (14), the pattern of the Egyptian feast/famine years. A fragment of this pattern is the reduced, half- span of the same seven-year pattern of inference, stated by Jesus in Matthew 24:22. A circle of 22 has a diameter of seven, and seven divided is forty and two months, or three and one-half years. The whole is then 84 months or seven years, which has a circular diameter of about 27 months, rounded off to the nearest whole.

 

Israel (Jacob), along with his 69 family members, was enjoined in the land of Goshen in Egypt, in the second year of the seven years famine. Seven years times two (14) had been determined by Pharaoh’s dreams of the double sevens. And so it was that in the second seven of the sevens, near the end of the second year of the seven years famine, when Joseph was 39, that Jacob and all his household came to Egypt.

 

Jacob lived in Goshen of Egypt for 17 years, expiring at the age of 147, an exact multiple of sevens and the exact number of days spanning the time from the first day of month two until the first day of month seven of the lunar calendar. The bookends of these two months configured is therefore 2/7.

 

Unbelievable as it may seem, upon this Genesis pattern of Joseph’s life, now thousands of years in the past, is based the unfolding drama that is now the front page headlines of world news. The core energy and impetus of all that is now taking place worldwide stems from a snapshot of the cellular form of this sketch and image, a microscopic dot in time, beginning 1727 BC, now blown up to engulf the silver screen of the entire earth. The melody and note placement is the same; we are just in the upscale of historical cycles, in the register of an advanced, high-octave pitch in the passing of time. The time notes move slowly in the low octaves, but in the high registers of the end of the age, events race at a high pitch of momentum.

 

What we can visually catalog in the current swell of world turbulence is merely the superficial outcroppings of a frantic world in chaos, trying to report on, explain and understand just what on earth is going on. Ephraim and Manasseh are in rapid decline, which is ripping the fabric of the world’s social structure apart. Many lines are merging upon this crossroad of history. In the 2015 Republican debates, one of the candidates alluded to this very fact. When America is weak, it was said, bad people move in to fill the void of posture.

 

Almost no one perceives that we could be witnessing the finale -the prophetic age of Joseph, his descendants and nations, and that everything now happening was programmed thousands of years in the past. Tragic as it may be, this is a score and theme so simple as to be played on the repeating octaves of the seven notes of the harp. These patterns of the sevens, map the flow of the Biblical story.

 

Counting from the Jubilee year of 26/27 AD, the 40th Jubilee came in our day on the year 1986 AD. The next Jubilee cycle falls at the year 2035 AD. In 2027 AD we will come to year 2744 since the fall of ancient Israel, 718 BC. 

 

Now, a circle of 44 has a diameter of 2 x 7 = a double seven = 14. Joseph was 44 when the double set of sevens ended (14 years). He had been in Egypt for 27 years. 27 + 44 = 61%, the percentage of time that lunar calendar laws are activated to adjust the date of the seventh lunar month, Tishri. This system or recipe of time calculations (the lunar calendar), God ordained in the name of Joseph (ref. Psalm 81).

 

Joseph was sold into slavery at age 17, and was separated from his father Jacob for 22 years. He was 39 when Israel moved to Egypt. As can be seen, the sum of the numbers is 22 + 39 = 61, the exact percentage of time that the molad calculations, according to calendar rules, are adjusted to proclaim the first day of the seventh lunar month. This was the day of Trumpets, when Joseph was brought from prison to stand before Pharaoh of Egypt.

 

But, getting back to our current age, just how many years will be required to complete this final phase of God’s plan is yet to be understood. We should not join the foolish predictions of past speculators who have tried to set dates. Thus far, all who have tried to guess the day of Jesus’ second coming have failed miserably.

 

But one thing is certain. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that events which are now in our face could be heading toward the crescendo of history’s long-playing symphony. How long will this take? We do not know. As was told to the prophet Daniel, that book and page of understanding shall remain closed until the end of the age.

So these writings are simply an effort to gather the many puzzle pieces together, in hopes of forming a better picture of the future landscape. Whatever that may be, it is not God’s desire that we become discouraged and quit. Rather, in hope we must forge onward, and with understanding and wisdom face the present, having learned from the tragedies of the past.  

 

Though there is much twisting and deception in their presentation, the world, through the eyes of the mass media, is able to view the daily progression of that which is taking place in the physical realm. However, much in the same way that Elisha prayed to God that his servant be allowed to see what was occurring in the parallel dimension of the spirit world (II Kings 6:17), so it is that monumental events, parallel to the physical, are at the same time taking place, completely out of our range of view.

 

This unseen posturing of forces is more real than what we actually see from the superficial vista of physical sight. The daily headlines of what we can see and read are merely one layer of the strata, but the unseen events simultaneously occurring in the spirit world make up the rest of the story. 

 

At the time of this writing we are nearing the end of the second term of the administration of number 44, Barack Obama, a man largely thrust into office by a double set of 27 votes on the lunar date of 2/27 (2008), Jerusalem time. This voting process of the DNC focused on the delegates of the 27th state, Florida, and Michigan, the latter state having 17 electoral votes. This preceded by about two years an explosion in the Gulf of Mexico on the date 2/7 of the lunar calendar, in the 207th year after the treaty of New Orleans.

 

But on the front page of global news, this 27-degree path of peril has been opened in the Middle East and across North Africa, a corridor of turmoil now threatening the peace and economy of the entire world, in a time which some believe to be a harbinger to the opening of the apocalyptic panorama of the 27th New Testament book of Revelation. If so, then is soon to come, in parallel with Revelation, the end finale of week-70 of Daniel’s prophecy - a timeline which has been dormant since the days of the ministry of Jesus Christ.

 

Disturbances in the 10-degree window of the 27/17th north parallels, involving Egypt, Iran, Yemen, Saudi Arabia and others, now have the world on edge, poised at the brink of a time and place that we’d just as soon avoid.

 

Egypt, the Sudan and Libya have fallen, Saudi Arabia, sliced by the same 27th line of the meridian, may also eventually topple. Farther north, Syria and Jordan are at risk, and the region of Hormuz, south of Iran, along with the Suez Canal are bottlenecks of major portent.

 

On the surface, the world media selectively reports on protests, social unrest and conflicts among the nations of men, depending on which story is more politically controversial. But underneath, what does not appear may well be a battle raging in the spirit realm. That is, a Michael and Gabriel type of conflict, engaged with the prince demons of Persia. This is a struggle of the spirit world, which is physically manifested in the boiling strife and turmoil of the Middle East. More and more, the fallout from this turmoil will spread to all nations of the civilized world, having a direct impact on human life, health and economics.

 

In one of Daniel’s many prophecies, he prayed and fasted for 21 days before the angel came. Now those prophecies which the angel conveyed to Daniel have been thrust forward to our day, the time of the cyclical fulfillment of the high-octave register. That which was described to Daniel as events of the far and distant future are now in our face, front page headlines of the hour, as we wait to see when the heated pot boils over. Most of us know that one day it will happen. It is unavoidable.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 17

 

 

PATTERNS OF HISTORY

 

“And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that the entire world should be taxed,” (i.e. registered). The world that then was, at Caesar’s command, was made to give account, for the sole purpose of garnering wealth for the unbridled pursuit of the Emperor’s whims, his wars and political ambitions. To think that our world of today is that much changed, more than 2,000 years past the day of Caesar Augustus, would be incredibly naïve. 

 

This quote from Luke 2:1, taken in the context of current events worldwide, should alarm every thinking human being now alive on planet earth. It should startle our senses and make the hairs bristle on the backs of our necks, considering that all epic conflicts of social change throughout man’s history have typically been prefaced by major movements in banking and taxation, two camps which have historically been in bed with the politicians and governments of man’s multitude of corrupt systems.

 

The event of Mary and Joseph’s trip to Bethlehem in the late summer of 5 BC was a paramount transition in the history of the western hemisphere, at a time when Caesar’s armies were at war, and in a day when his long arm reached out through the tax man to all the world under his domain. The decision of Augustus, spawned by his wars and taxation, determined the birthplace of Jesus Christ.

 

Until our present day, such all-encompassing, global control of taxation by a single central power has never been possible. But now, with the emerging total dominance through universal monetary governance, not even the heretofore sovereign United States will escape the tyranny of extreme, oppressive taxation and police state rule. The by-line used by our wonderful politicians, because of ever increasing terrorism will be sold as safety and security, but in reality these excesses of control will eventually be a curse of grave magnitude. We all know that day is coming.

 

We are living in an age when the dark shadow of Daniel’s image of Dura is rapidly growing over earth’s landscape, with a total police state for the entire world emerging. Jesus looked forward in time to this day, giving His message to the seven churches of the New Testament age.

 

Laodicea, she is called; the last and seventh church of our day. By the concept of the seven progressive eras throughout New Testament history, Laodicea is the only church to tread upon any part of the time frame of Daniel’s 70 weeks prophecy - a church aptly called by a name which some scholars have said implies a top down, fist of iron government, sitting in judgment over the populace; a populace increasingly unable to work, unable to buy, unable to sell without the expressed consent of the coming Caesar of the end time age. In the end, our every move will be taxed, registered, marked, stamped and filed under the number of the coming end time governance. A just and reasonable tax God allows and expects of citizens among the nations of men. We would be breaking both the laws of God and man to think otherwise. It is the abuse, misuse and excess that inflicts human suffering.

 

We come to an age when the only purpose for human life, more and more, becomes one of serving as host for political parasites and their minions. Caesar’s last empire is not yet in place, nor his mark yet fully enforced, but the seeds of his plan have already been sown.

 

Now, there are seven churches of the New Testament age, types of the seven-week barely harvest to the first resurrection of the Day of Pentecost (i.e. a seven-octave count).

 

To varying degrees all seven churches throughout history have suffered, and shall suffer, persecution, but in this regard only two of the seven are singled out, connected and specifically noted with respect to intense tribulation.

 

These are Smyrna and Laodicea, the second and seventh churches. One was poor, but said to be rich spiritually. The second claimed to be rich, in need of nothing, yet Jesus implies the seventh church is very poor spiritually. These two churches combined make up two sevenths of the seven sevenths, each rich and each poor in different ways, but both tied together by the statement of trial and persecution, described in a way that is somewhat separate and different from the other five churches of Revelation.

 

The seventh church, Laodicea, is said to flourish in an age when it should buy gold. The second church, Smyrna, Jesus tied to a number identity of 10 years of persecution. The seventh church, Laodicea, coming at the end, and contemporary with week 70 of Daniel’s prophecy, is surely the seventh age of God’s church in our time. She is specifically type-cast during the half-week of the seven years of Daniel’s 70-weeks prophecy.

 

These are just a few more of those curious examples of the multiple layers of Biblical analogy, having both physical and spiritual fulfillment, embedded also with the time span patterns of the seven-symmetry of harp, music, prophecy.

 

In passing, both churches, by name, connect to a familiar phrase. Smyrna is the Greek name for myrrh, part of the phrase trilogy of gold, frankincense and myrrh (Smyrna). That is, Gold for Laodicea, myrrh for Smyrna, and incense for the sacrificial altar of death and persecution of both. Also, is the inference of the Lamb of God, the sin offering, Jesus Christ, of the two sevens (i.e. 14th) Passover. Incense, we are told, represents the prayers of the saints, and is sprinkled amidst the seven angels and the seven trumpets of Revelation 8.

 

Throughout history, many have described the characteristics of the seven churches of Revelation. We will not try to cover all of that here, but it may be significant that the sixth church, Philadelphia, has a peculiar connection to Isaiah 22. That verse in Isaiah is 22:22, a number which sums to 22 + 22 = 44, the value of the sixth note of music, the diatonic note F. This verse of Isaiah 22, repeated in Revelation 3:7, states: “He who has the key of David. He who opens and no man shuts, and shuts and no man opens.”

 

Now the birth of Jesus, the one who has the key of David, occurred at Bethlehem, in concert with the first and seventh month of the lunar civil year, in the 14th (two sevens) year of the Metonic cycle, 5 BC. In the late summer of 2010 AD, 2014 years past that time in Bethlehem, occurred the 14th year of the Metonic cycle, and year one of the 107th Metonic period since 5 BC.

 

Both dates, separated by 2,014 years, witnessed the occurrences of the rare and unique cluster-chord groupings, where four out of five consecutive lunar years are declared on the same day of the sevens (i.e. the week). These trumpet clouds or clustered groupings are formed, as if in musical chords, by days of the weekly cycle.

 

Beginning with the year of Jesus’ birth, late summer of 5 BC, one such cluster pattern of the civil New Year’s declarations occurred. (Ref: “When was Jesus born?” by Fred. R. Coulter). That pattern, beginning with the year of Jesus’ birth, was 7-7-3-7-7 for five consecutive years, while the 2010 declaration began a series of the pattern cluster, 5-5-2-5-5, or Thursday-Thursday-Monday.-Thursday.-Thursday. The year 2015 begins a rare and second Trumpet cloud cluster, with the pattern, by days of the week,

2-2-5-2-2. So in musical speak, in the key of A, we have E-E-B-E-E (55255), followed by B-B-E-B-B (22522), for the 10-year span of the lunar new year days, which are called the feast of Trumpets or Rosh Hashanah (Lev. 23:23).

 

Only three of these rare cluster patterns are possible in lunar declarations. The three five-year cloud patterns are made up of the notes 3-5-7-2, or C-e-G-b, or Tue.-Thu.-Sat.-Mon., which is the C major chord of CeG, tagged with a b7th overlay. The three patterns are 7-7-3-7-7, 5-5-2-5-5, and 2-2-5-2-2, numbered by days of the week on which the dates are declared. Here, in this context, we have also equated the week days to notes of music.

 

 

Prophetic Patterns and the Trumpet Clouds

 

The trumpet blasts of ancient Israel were used to sound the alarm of war and/or to call assembly. The New Testament book of Revelation also makes use of the trumpet alarms, and the apostle Paul speaks of the day when the last trump shall sound. The point is that in Biblical terms, trumpets have always been used to mark important times of worship and assembly, but also used as a call to war, or other times of portent and alarm.

 

But very unusual is that in our current decade of time (as of this writing), beginning September 9, 2010, we have a sequence of two consecutive cluster-chord day of Trumpets declarations. That is, 5-5-2-5-5 followed by the mirror image 2-2-5-2-2, for the second five-year set of the 10-year period. These patterns span the years 2010 through 2019, by inclusive count. Surprisingly, if we add 55255 + 22522 the sum is 77777.

 

Note that in these number patterns, the numbers that are different in the first five-year set is 5 + 2 = seven, and the numbers that are different in the second set of five years is 2 + 5 = seven, and the sum of both sets is then two sevens = 14, the day of Jesus’ Passover, Nisan 14.

 

Again, there are only three possible cluster-cloud patterns in lunar calendar declarations. For the three patterns the week day numbers that are different sum to 5 + 2 = 7 and 7 + 3 = 10, totaling 7 + 10 = 17, a number which has an obvious prophetic significance. By the time the current 10-year stretch of the chorded trumpet blasts end, we will be only seven years away from the 2,000-year anniversary of the beginning of the ministry of Jesus Christ, dating from the lunar year, 26/27 AD.

 

Severe as the taxation of Caesar was upon the world populace of Jesus’ day, what lies ahead, by comparison, will make the Emperor’s moves seem like child’s play. Cyclical patterns of history quite often repeat, and like the serpentine swirls of a hurricane, or the circular spin of the doubling of the seven tones of music, each octave wave-band of energy expands out to the next horizon. At the moment, the global horizon looks pretty alarming - a fitting age for the unusual trumpet blasts of the lunar patterns.

 

Stemming from the microcosm of the years of one man’s life, that of Joseph and his double sets of double sevens of some 3700 years ago, the world has now grown to a population exceeding seven billion, writhing in a metamorphosis of transition and social destruction.

 

Today, we stand on the cusp of the granddaddy of all conflicts, when virtually every tribe on planet earth will be registered and oppressively taxed by the moneychangers, all in preparation for that coming worldwide event. The Caesars of this age, bedded with a global banking and military complex, will have their due, and ultimately it will be impossible to buy and sell without the consent of the new world order. The Scriptures cannot be broken, and God has stated that this will happen (Rev. 13:17).

 

It is interesting that one time of note when Jesus really became angry in the gospel accounts is that event involving the moneychangers of the temple. Well that day, historically speaking, has come again, and the moneychangers have never been out in greater force.

 

The air we breathe and the right to leave a footprint on the ground all will be summed, every step and breath totaled and paid, pockets emptied until they are inside out! Caesar, with his mechanisms of high tech merchandising, is alive and well, with the handwriting well scripted and posted on the world’s Facebook wall.

 

 

 

 

 

 

More than any others, two men of the Biblical record were given the roadmap of the world to which we have now arrived. Both men, with lives separated by almost seven centuries, received the same basis message, each with details from a different point of view; the key of one adding to and unlocking the message of the other. Like Joseph, both men received the panoramic prophecies while in captivity in foreign lands, outside the confines of their native, Israel. These men were Daniel and the apostle John.

 

Of David it was said that he was a man after God’s own heart, but to Daniel was given the greater compliment. “O Daniel, man greatly beloved,” the angel conveyed. And to John was given a similar remembrance, being the one apostle that Jesus especially loved. The writings of these two men, more than any others, are most often quoted in discussions of prophetic significance. Indeed, the two books of their writings, Daniel and Revelation, are a lock and key set.

 

The messages to both men, gelled together, produce the unfolding events of the days in which we live. But the common thread of the revelations given to Joseph, Daniel and John, now having spanned some 3700 years, is quite obvious. Added to these are the words of Joseph’s father, Israel, when just before death, he left us with those prophetic words of the 7 x 7 chapter of Genesis (i.e. Gen. 49:1-27).

 

Through each of these men, God portrayed His message in patterns of the seven symmetry, as if in a prophetical score of music. The octave pitch of notes now races to a screaming crescendo in the highest register of the modern age. The sevens of Jacob and Joseph, overlaid upon the sevens of Daniel, all added to the sevens of the revelations of Jesus to the apostle John, are all brought full course to this very day. 

 

How bizarre, how ironic, how complex, yet how simple, that from the days of the dreams of the two sevens of Pharaoh’s fat and gaunt cows, and from the time of Pharaoh’s two sevens of the full and thin ears of grain, the turmoil of our day began with the Arab spring, and the speech of Barack Obama in Egypt. We are removed from the age of Joseph’s time in Egypt by more than 3700 years. But now, in the years beginning with the decade of 2010, at the juncture of year two-seven two-seven (i.e. 2727), is a line of time stemming from the loss of Joseph’s national wealth, 718 BC, when Israel was conquered by the hand of the ancient Assyrians. Now, the land of Assyria (Syria), which invaded and conquered ancient Israel, has become the home of the world terror group known as ISIS.

 

An alarming number of nations in what might be called the Joseph corridor of the 17/27 ten degree window of the north parallels are coming unglued, at this very juncture of world history. Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and the Sudan are just a few of more than a dozen nations now included in this social metamorphosis.

 

We have no way of knowing anything of certainty, but perhaps we are witnessing the world events that will ultimately lead to Daniel 9:27. The product of these numbers (9 x 27) becomes the Psalm of the appointed times. That is, Daniel’s 9:27 = 9 x 27 = the 81st Psalm, ordained in the pattern codex of Joseph’s experience. 

Joseph’s story was focused on the land of Egypt, where at age 17 he first heard the Egyptian tongue, a language that he did not understand. This harp symmetry of the seven, this music, this calendar of the lunar patterns of world historical events and Appointed Times, God “ordained in Joseph” (Psalm 81 = 3 x 27). And now this microcosm of his life and experiences, as prophesied by his father, Jacob, is amplified to become the outline, landscape and roadmap of the final days of man’s civilization, leading to the times of the second Exodus.

 

March 16, 2010 was the first day of the lunar month Nisan. The fall of ancient Israel (718 BC) occurred about 2,727 years previously. In late summer 2001, a tragic event took place on the 23rd day of the sixth lunar month of that year, 2,717 years after the fall of Israel’s 10 northern tribes. Attacks from Assyria had begun in 732 BC and by 718 BC the removal of Israel’s national wealth and God-given birthright was removed. They were carried away into slavery, with the birthright then removed and withheld for a period of seven times, or 7 x 360 = 2,520 years.

 

The span of 2,520 years, moved forward from 718 BC, falls on the year of the Louisiana Purchase, 1803 AD, 27 years after the Declaration of Independence, 1776.

 

In the winter of 2000 AD, 2,717 years after the fall of ancient Israel, the election of George Bush was largely decided by the hanging chad saga of our 27th state, Florida. This is our key state through which passes the 27th parallel north, and a state which, at that time, had 27 electoral votes.

 

Within the prophetic Joseph patterns of 17 and 27 also lie the current world trouble spots of geography, which could set up the stage for coming end-time events. Indeed, this unraveling, which really began with the presidency of George Bush, (2001 AD/lunar year 2717), has now escalated, especially beginning with the age of the second term of president number 44, Barack Obama.

 

Remember, a circle of 44 has a diameter of 14, and a book of 22 chapters (Revelation) has a diameter or thread running through it, all about the number seven. That is, 22 divided by 3.14159 (Pi) = seven. This is the equation for the diameter of a circle, and this is the number (seven) which passes through the chapters of Revelation.

 

A very important date, late in the month of Elul, near the close of the lunar civil year of 2717 (2001 AD), is forever engraved upon the pages of modern history; that infamous Tuesday of September 11, on the lunar Elul 23, 2001, the day on which fell buildings one, two and seven.

 

As we have seen so far in the pages of this book, it is quite evident that the number patterns of 7, 10, 17, 2 x 7, 27, 2717, 2727 and the half-divisions of the sevens are far from random, accidental patterns of time and chance. Rather, we are discovering just how profound and on time these almost cryptic numbers of prophetic imagery really are. And, we are discovering how directly they connect from the current events of our day all the way back to the dim history of the past, far removed from our time by thousands of years.

 

The number sequence 27/17 is not only the mathematical point of the transition of what we call the Middle C octave of music, but is also a known span of years for eclipse cycles, and the 11th multiple of the diatonic, fourth octave note B of the musical scale (11 x 247 = 2717).

 

Sevens of Oath and Covenant

 

Now, a promise from God is by inference a sworn oath or covenant, a word in the Hebrew language equal to the number seven (sheba or sheva), for it was said of old that one having made an oath, had “sevened” himself. Since God never lies, His promises, when conditions are fulfilled, can be equated with that of an oath. Coming from God, both the oath and promise are equal to seven.

 

The One who became Jesus Christ, in Old Testament times, reaffirmed His promise to Abraham with an oath (Gen. 22:17). Afterwards, Abraham departed to his place of dwelling, Beersheba, a name which means the well of an oath, or the well of seven (sheba).  Later, the One who came to be revealed in Scriptures as Jesus’ Father “sevened” Himself, confirming a promise to Jesus Christ by a sworn oath. This is in the Psalms of David, Psalm 110. In these cases, the promises are synonymous with the oath, sevened, immutable and equal, since a promise from God, once made, is as firm as a sworn oath (a seven). An oath from God or man can be conditional or unconditional, depending on the stated terms of contract.

 

Quoting from these examples, in the New Testament book of Hebrews, the apostle Paul wrote, regarding the promises and oaths of God, “that by two immutable things (a promise backed up by an oath) in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation,” (Heb. 6:18). This, Paul wrote in reference to the comparison of Jesus to Melchizedek, king of Salem, the priest king first spoken of in Genesis, chapter 14, a chapter number consisting of two sevens, in which was listed the bread and wine of the 14th Passover. 

 

Jesus, of David’s lineage, in the waning moments of Saturday (day seven), on the lunar date, Nisan 17, 30 AD, became the Firstborn from the dead, the first mortal to attain spirit life, after which He also became a high priest forever, after the order of Melchizedek. These two offices of priest and king are symbolized by the physical lineage of Levi and Judah, which order of the births of these two sons of Leah was 3 + 4 = seven, respectively.

 

Jesus, being a combination of the lineage of both Levi (3) + Judah (4) = seven, was therefore literally qualified to be a priest king, though His Father was not from the tribe of Levi. An announcement of Jesus’ kingdom and priesthood, David recorded in the prophetic words of song, Psalm 110. This number, 110, is the value of note A of the third octave of music. It is also the lifespan of Joseph, Ephraim and Joshua, and also the length of the life of Job, the Old Testament author of the book of Job.

It was more than 1,000 years after the writing of Psalm 110 when Paul, in the book of Hebrews, cited the example of that Psalm with reference to Genesis 22, in the account of Isaac. Thus, by the example of an oath and promise, was formed a double link of sevens, as validation that Jesus had attained to the order of Melchizedek.

 

In a sense, we have here two shebas, or sevens of hope. Since God could not break his promises to either Abraham or Jesus Christ, then it stands to reason that He would also keep his promises to true Christians. Christians are of the seed of Abraham, heirs of the new covenant, potential brothers and sisters of Jesus. These oaths of promise become doubly immutable, being impossible to undo, since God has sevened Himself, first by promise, then lastly by a sworn oath (a seven). As the Bible states, “The Scripture cannot be broken,” (Jn. 10:35). 

 

It is also in this same New Testament book of Hebrews that Paul speaks of a first and second seven of rest. For he said, “if Joshua had given them rest (a seven), then He would not afterward have spoken of another day, a second seven of promise.” (Heb. 4:7-8) Joshua, leading Israel into the land of promise, did not bring the true seven (rest), but Jesus the Christ shall.

 

But coupled to the promise of rest (seven), Paul warns that while God’s sworn oath is immutable, there are other promises that can be conditional for those to whom the promise has been made. Thus, Paul conveys another example of a promise and a sworn oath. He quotes the words of God in Hebrews 4:3, referring to Psalm 95:11. “So I sevened (swore) in My wrath, They shall not enter My seven (rest).” This, of course, because Israel refused to enter the land that God had guaranteed by a seven of promise. Therefore, the oath and terms of covenant for that generation had been broken, thus the promise was made null and void.

 

The apostle Peter speaks of a day with God as equated to 1,000 years of man’s time. In preface to the beginning of that yet future seventh 1,000-year day of rest, we will eventually come to the half- week witness (1,260 days) of the two sevens of promise, their reign placed, as if purposefully, in the middle of the 27th Book, in the 11th chapter of the 22 chapters of Revelation. Remember, a circle of 22 has a diameter of seven, and an arc of 11. A double arc then equals 22, the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet.

 

These two symbolic sevens of witness divide Revelation at chapter 11. Two witnesses, standing as oaths or shebas (sevens) of covenant, before the God of the whole earth, are in context with reference to a third temple at Jerusalem. This edifice has an outer court, dividing or separating the temple from the gentile world, by the middle wall of the gentile court, which is an area not measured, but trampled underfoot for a half-seven (i.e. 42 months or 3.5 years).

 

In a sense, this division or separation between the holy temple and the world’s profane civilization is an imagery line, separating the holy span of time of the lunar months of the temple service from the darkness of the months outside that time span, not measured.

 

The lunar months of the Old Testament temple and the now spiritual temple of the New Testament era are added together by an interlace of 29 and 30-day periods, forming a fixed span of 207 days for the first seven months of each lunar year. Within these 207 days are seven annual Sabbaths of God (see Leviticus 23). Other months, later in the fall and winter, outside the worship dates of the spiritual temple, occur in times of the dark light of the holiday months of the Occult calendar of solar calculations; that dark period of void is not measured or included as part of the appointed months of the sacred lunar calculations of the harvest period of light.

 

As in the Hebrew gematria for light, which equals 207, in each year of the calculated Hebrew calendar is contained a span of seven months, in which are declared the Appointed Times of God. So we have the period of light, then the period of the darkness, in the months of the diminished light of winter.

 

Seven times in the Metonic cycle, a 13th phantom month is added to the lunar calculations, adjusting or moving the 207-day span of  the seven weeks and seven months of the seven churches, so that this seven-month sequence is maintained within the harvest cycle of the western hemisphere.

 

Within this annual period of seven months, Nisan through Tishri, is contained the seven Sabbaths of worship and congregation. This ghost month, an additional month, Adar, which is akin to a mathematical move on paper, in effect advances all days of declaration ahead by two sevenths of a week (i.e. 2 days). Once this repeat or second Adar has passed, this two-day advance is really about the only remaining residual effect of the 13th month, which simply maintains or aligns the monthly cadence with the seasons of harvest, resulting in a seven-month span of 207 days.

 

Now, as before stated, a covenant and/or sworn oath of promise can be equated with the number seven. A covenant and the oath, in the days of the making of the two Testaments of Scripture, required a sacrifice. The symbol of this covenant oath (seven), the sacrifice, was typically divided. So it was that the sacrificial animals of God’s promise to Abram (Gen. 15) were halved, and so it was that Jesus, the Passover Lamb, was slain at the half-week (seven), ending His ministry of the half of seven, or about 3.5 years.

 

So it follows that Israel’s broken covenant with God will involve the half of seven, or 3.5 years of punishment (= 1,260 days), a period which will also include the time of Jacob’s trouble, a time which Jesus stated in Matthew 24, would be limited, cut short (i.e. divided = 3.5 years).

 

The covenant promise or oath of God to Abraham was given 430 years to the very day of the week and very day of the month previous to the exodus of Israel out of Egypt. This exodus began on the two-sevens, or 14th day of the lunar Nisan, 1487 or 1486 BC. The exodus trek found them encamped at Mt. Sinai about two months later, which led to the events and enactment of the first Covenant, on or near the day of Pentecost. If this was at the time of Pentecost, then it was 2.27 months past the lunar date, Nisan 1 of that year.

 

Though the exact date is not absolutely stated, it appears that Jesus may have thundered the Decalogue from the Mount, on the eighth day of the third lunar month, Sivan, in the year of the exodus out of Egypt. Regardless of the exact day, this event at Sinai occurred in the third month, Sivan, though it may have taken place a few days after Pentecost. The Scripture (Exodus 19:1) is not emphatically conclusive on the timing, except to say that “on the same day” would have to be either the weekday of Thursday, or the lunar date Sivan 15. If it implies Sivan 15, then these events took place just about seven to 10 days after the day of Pentecost. 

 

But the plan and promise for Abram began much earlier, as his family left Ur of the Chaldees (Ur = light = 207), first dwelling in Haran (moon light), then later traveling to Canaan, the land of the number of prophetic promise, a seven (see Genesis 12).

 

The seed of promise was Abraham’s son, Isaac, born some years later, according to the Genesis story. The birthright promise of greatness, first made to Abraham in Genesis 12, was then passed on to Isaac. Later, Isaac bequeathed this birthright to Jacob, in Genesis, chapter 27:27.

 

Many years later the larger portion of the birthright was passed to the 14th (two sevens) adopted son of Israel, Ephraim, the second and youngest son of Joseph, as God continued to keep his covenant promise made to Abraham. This promise God later doubly confirmed when He sevened Himself by an oath (Gen. 22:16). Then, the ceremony of the passing on of the oath of promise is described in Genesis 48:5-20. At death, Israel (Jacob), in a 27-verse discourse, foretells what shall happen to the tribes of Israel in the last days (Genesis 49).

 

Joseph, the 11th son of Israel, born in the seventh year of the births of Israel sons, had two sons of covenant promise (a double seven), each receiving a portion of Israel’s national birthright blessing of wealth. Joseph lived to be 110 years old, the same as the number of stories of each of the two twin towers that fell on 9/11, towers which were symbols of the national health and wealth of these United States of America. The height of each tower bore the same number as the Psalm of God’s sworn oath (a seven) to the high priest, Psalm 110.

 

Since the tragedy of 9/11, the fabric of world stability has continued to unravel, traveling down a road of destruction on many fronts, on a path and trajectory which end and outcome of serious consequences appears to be unavoidable.

 

 

Again, it was the lineage of the patriarch, Joseph, the 11th son of Israel, who received the national blessings of the sworn oath birthright. And Joseph, beginning at age 17, had a 27-year experience, in which was embedded a double cycle of two sevens, or 14 years. These events were signified by the double dreams of Pharaoh, each dream having two sevens, or fourteen elements, which depicted the two sets of the feast/famine sevens, in a

14-year period ending 27 years after Joseph had entered Egypt. When the sevens came to

 

an end, Joseph was 44 years old. Remember, by mathematical formula, a circle of 44 has a diameter of two sevens (14), the seven years of plenty + the seven years of famine.

 

But in our day of the 1997 to 2015 Metonic cycle, the 14th year of the cycle 2013/14 was a 13-month lunar leap year, falling on year 2727 past the demise of ancient Israel, 718 BC. This was the year 2010 AD. That was a noted year of transition and upheaval, a year which fell upon the reign of our 44th president, Barack Obama. In the fall of 2015 began the last and 19th year of that Metonic cycle. 

 

The current (as of this writing) president of the United States is a man of mixed race and culture, as were also the two birthright sons of the patriarch, Joseph. Joseph’s sons were13th and 14th by order of the sons of Jacob, and the sum of the divided birthright is therefore 13 + 14 = two seven, or a double seven.

 

What archeology have we unearthed by all of these astounding patterns? While these mysterious patterns surely exist, we have no crystal ball to know exactly what they mean. Therefore, we must simply watch and wait to know the outcome. But if such events of pattern are occurring as part of God’s plan, then this is no silly game of time, chance or random happenstance.

 

              

Origin of the Double Seven

 

So rudimentary, so overwhelming is the importance of the prophetic symmetry of the double-seven pattern to the history of mankind, that by inference this two-seven witness of fourteen (14) was on the drawing table, already determined and calculated at the dawn o
