|Happy New Year! Why a 13th month?||April 21 2023 / Biblical Month 1, Day 1|
Wishing everyone a happy Biblical New Year! Although many Jews and Christians started the new year last month, we believe this is the new year because Aviv was not ready last month adding a 13th month to this year. Is there a 13th month in the Biblical calendar? God’s moon calendar follows the Metonic cycle and it regulates in line with the solar calendar every 19 years. None of the long-term time prophecies could be fulfilled without God using the Metonic cycle.
One example of a 13th month is in the book of Ezekiel.
Here we are left with only three options to make the time in the story add up. Either Ezekiel was disobedient to God, or a 13th month was added that year or God “shortened the time” without telling us.
Let us look at the story and then you can do the math. We are told God speaks to Ezekiel in the 4th month of the 5th day of the month (Ezekiel 1:1-2). We are also told it is the fifth year of captivity. (Ezek.1:2)
Then he gets his assignment: “And it came to pass at the end of seven days, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying…” (Eze 3:16)
Here adding the seven days we are now at the
12th day of the 4th month of the 5th year.
God tells him to start a role-play of the judgment against Juda and Israel. God gives him one day for every year of their sins. He is told to make an illustration of Jerusalem and lie next to it, siege it. He is to lie on his side for 390 days and then on the other side for 40 days. This amounts together to 430 days.
Then we see Ezekiel in chapter 8 and verse 1 it says: “And it came to pass in the sixth year, in the sixth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I sat in mine house, and the elders of Judah sat before me, that the hand of the Lord GOD fell there upon me”.
So now Ezekiel is no longer lying next to the tile and is back in his house on:
the 5th day of the 6th month of the 6th year.
This is exactly one year, a month, and 23 days later.
From the 12th day in the fourth month of the 5th year to the time Ezekiel is in his house with the elders we have:
1 year, 1 month, and 23 days.
As you can see, something is not adding up here. First of all, Ezekiel did not use a 365 solar calendar. It can be ruled out mathematically speaking. If he had he would not have fulfilled God’s set time for him to lie next to the illustrated tile. Just look at the math:
365 + 30 + 23 = 418 days. He was supposed to lie for 430 days.
And so when meeting with the elders he skipped 22 days from his mission.
We see the same problem with the lunar year being only 354 days a year. If he used this calendar with only 12 months that year he would have left his post over 20 days before he should have.
354 + 30 + 23 days = 407 days. He was supposed to lie for 430 days.
Again, if Ezekiel had used a fixed 30-day month calendar he falls short again:
360 + 30 + 23 = 413. He was supposed to lie for 430 days. 17 days short.
Now if Ezekiel followed God’s lunar calendar according to the law of Abib, there could be a 13th month that year which would make the time add up. The math would be the following:
354 days from the lunar calendar + 30 days from a 13th month = 384 days that year.
384 + 29 + 23 = 436. Ezekiel had to lie for 430 days.
We now have a week extra for him to move back. The additional month could have been 29 days or 30, it does not matter, it still adds up. Ezekiel had 6 to 7 days from he was done with his mission until he met with the elders at his house for his next assignment from God.
Now we can see that Ezekiel could not have fulfilled his mission of lying next to the tile for 430 days within the time given without the Abib calendar.
Only with a thirteenth month that year could Ezekiel have done as instructed in the time frame given. If not, God must have shortened the time for Ezekiel. Which makes little sense when reading the story.
You need to follow the Metonic cycle to correctly understand the prophetic 1260, 1290, and 1335 years too. If you want to learn more contact me.
|Is the Bible outdated?||Biblical Month 12, Day 8|
Is the Bible an outdated book? It seems to be the argument of many progressive Christians who believe we should be more loosely with Biblical dogmas. The irreligious argument this even more and claim it is time Christians “follow the times” and “the science” over the ancient writing. The belief that the Bible is the word of God is essential for the Christian fundament. Jesus even said it is what determines if “your house” can stand the storm or not. (Matthew 7:24-26)
This is because what many call progressive today is really just walking in circles. The values in the world are ever-changing but it is not something new. Everything has been done before, believed before, and practiced before.
The Bible has always been “an outsider” to the morals of the world.
The argument is that Biblical ideas are old and we now “know better” and can change our perspective. But the Biblical message was never appreciated in the world in the past either.
There is a reason that several of the Biblical authors were jailed and executed. The words of God were not accepted in the past either.
The prophet Isaiah was sown in two. Peter was put in prison and killed. Paul was put in prison and killed. They were not killed because they were thieves and murderers. But because the world had made God’s values a crime.
Thus the attitude of the world today towards the Bible and those who follow it is not progressive, it is a repetition of the past.
Even Jesus that many claims would be progressive today, was hated in His own time and mocked and killed.
Paul wrote: “Some faced jeers and flogging, and even chains and imprisonment. They were put to death by stoning; they were sawed in two; they were killed by the sword. They went about in sheepskins and goatskins, destitute, persecuted and mistreated— the world was not worthy of them. They wandered in deserts and mountains, living in caves and in holes in the ground” (Heb.11:36-38)
Jesus said because the morals of the world are always at odds with God throughout time, past, and future, we can expect nothing less than to be viewed as outcasts in the world no matter what day of age we live in.
Some Christians have come up with this apparently “genius idea” that if we don’t say or do anything that offends anyone, we will be Christ-like. But what we really do is sell the truth for recognition and acceptance by the world.
Jesus said: “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me” (John 15:18-21)
|Biblical New Year is coming!||March 1, 2023/ Biblical Month 12, Day 8|
If you follow the Facebook group ‘Deborah’s date tree’ you can get updates on the restored Biblical calendar every month from the Karaite Jewish congregation in Israel. This is their estimation for this year’s first-month feasts:
Take note. The new moon observations are debated. If you think the dates should follow the moon phase scenario 1 and 3 is for you and if you believe the new moon has to be observed then you have to wait for someone to announce it. (Picture credit: Deborah’s date tree). (Genesis 1:14)
Word Meaning and New Testament fulfillment:
1st Day of Chag HaMatzot = 1st Day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread (The Day Christ rested in the Tomb)
Yom HaNafat HaOmer = Day of the Waving Shafet (Christ Ressurection Day)
7th Day of Chag HaMatzot = Last and seventh day of the feast of Unleavened Bread. The first and seventh days are the holy days during the feast where no work is permitted. It is for gathering and worship.
Chag HaShavuot = Pentecost, The feast of weeks. (The Day God blessed the disciples with a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit)
|Ark Discovery’s 41st anniversary! Why Such A Long Wait?||January 4, 2023 / Biblical Month 10, day 10|
The study that I am presenting in this video gives a biblical perspective on a prolonged time of mercy that I believe we have been living in the past 40 years:
|Death of the “seventh” Pope||December 31, 2022/ Biblical Month 10, Day 6|
The seventh pope after they were given papal sovereignty over the Vatican City, just died. For us who follow the Biblical calendar.. his funeral will take place around the same time the Babylonians started their siege on Jerusalem. (The day after, the 11th day of the tenth month). Not that it means anything. But this time of year does remind me of this short video I made some time ago (check the link under).
Remember Pope Benedict was the one holding on to the conservative catholic theology. Pope Francis is the liberal one looking to make changes. It will be interesting to see what will happen to the church. Will Francis resign and will there be another pope? Or will Frances himself continue with the changes he has wanted to make? The Catholic church is partly split in two and many who swore to Benedict are working hard against Francis.
|From This Day God Will Bless||December 19, 2022 / Biblical Month 9, Day 24|
On this Biblical date, we learn from the book of Haggai that God would start blessing His people. The book of Haggai is set in the time when Judah returned to Jerusalem after Babylonian captivity. However, they struggled to move forward in their relationship with God. They had not started working on the temple.
Hag 1:2 Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the LORD’S house should be built.
Hag 1:3 Then came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying,
Hag 1:4 Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house lie waste?
God then asks them to notice how hard they were working for their food, for their prosperity, and still they got no prosperity. He explains that if they start building on the temple, He would start blessing them again.
God them gave them strength to go on with the work:
“and they came and did work in the house of the LORD of hosts, their God” (Haggai 1:14)
Then God later sent another message:
Hag 2:10 In the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying…
Hag 2:18 Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the LORD’S temple was laid, consider it.
Hag 2:19 Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you.
This story and this date are therefore a reminder that if we choose God and help His work in the saving of souls, even our own souls, He will bless us in a way we cannot bless ourselves. The greatest privilege and blessing come from putting the Lord first.
|Climate Summit in Egypt 2022||November 13, 2022|
Right now 40 000 delegates are gathered at the climate conference close to the catholic/byzantine Sinai mountain in Egypt. Behind everything are several institutions and the UN is one of them. They have had five working days and today Sunday they are all resting on Sunday before continuing for another five days. Here we see them practicing Sunday sacredness spite everyone from different backgrounds.
Notice the arm on the sun logo. It is the same as in ancient Egypt used by Akhenaten. They believe today that he removed all the gods and swore to only one, the sun god. The imagery of the sun with hands illustrated the sun as the life-giver (seen handing out the ankh, a hieroglyph for life).
The strange thing is they chose this symbol at a summit in Egypt (revealing its origin) which might show further how they intend to “unite” people under their understanding of right and wrong. Do they want to do as Akhenaten? Does the UN want to be the next Akhenaten?
Remember all pagan religions were obsessed with the weather and the climate. This is why most gods were associated with a natural element like the sea, trees, sky, rain, and so on. They believed the balance of everything in nature relied on their climate gods and if they displeased the gods they would get into a climate crisis. This woke people’s superstitions and tied them to the pagan religion.
The famous scene at mount Carmel between the Baal worshippers and Elijah was tied to the drought crisis. This crisis was God’s way of telling them He controls the elements, He controls the sky and the rain, and not them, the priests, or Baal. God was confronting them with this.
From the Biblical past, we, therefore, know God is NOT honored at this climate conference. They are presenting themselves as life-givers, the ones who control the weather and our destiny. And now they use the symbol of the sun god as the life giver just like the pagans did, as the main logo.

|The Apostle Thomas – An Example To Follow?||October 7, 2022|
I was talking about Thomas a few days ago and how he deserves a better reputation. His emotions when Christ showed himself to all the disciples except him, we can only imagine. Not only that, Christ had given them a portion of the Holy Spirit and not him. For eight days he had to live with that. Yet, instead of going his own way like Judas, he made an act of faith. He stayed with the apostles for eight days, listening to them and worshipping with them. That was an act of faith, and Christ came on the eighth day and addressed him especially. No rebuke, just Jesus helping him through his struggle. Removing every doubt regarding His love for him. Thomas replied: “My Lord and my God!”. It does not say he touched Christ wound to examine Him, rather he worshipped Him. Then Jesus gave a blessing to those who believe without seeing. Something Thomas as an evangelist to India and other places would have loved to think about later. Everyone he told about Jesus who had to believe his word alone, without seeing, would Christ bless. He was happy to know what Christ said about them. But if Thomas had not, in faith, stayed with the disciples he might not have seen Jesus again. That’s what we all need to do when we feel doubt. Draw towards those who speak words of faith and stay with them and not go away and spend our time with others who speak doubt. In that way, Thomas is a great example of humility, patience, and faith.
|Noah’s ark discovered?||July 30, 2022|
Happy Sabbath. Time to revisit this discovery? Really nice seminar on Ron’s first trips to Noah’s ark.
|Gather Your Treasures in Heaven!||July 22, 2022|
CHINA TAKES CONTROL OF THE MONEY IN THE BANKS. Read the external article here.
When it is legal to steal. Governments did something similar in Greece and Cyprus too. Coming to your country one day? Invest in saving people’s souls instead?
Mat 6:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
Mat 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Any government that steals from its people will be held accountable someday.
|The illusion of a house||July 12, 2022 / Biblical Month 4|
Imagine you entered a house and you realized the windows were not real but painted on. There was a bathroom but the toilet did not flush, and a faucet but no water came out. Candles for decoration but no way to light them. The salt and pepper are just an illusion, nothing comes out. Would you want to live in a fake house?
This is what a church is without God’s spirit. It is a hoax. It can give you an illusion of faith and spirit, but not the real thing. Your spiritual needs are not met. There is no healing. This is why so many leave the church again.
If we as Christians claim to represent the living water yet we are dehydrated ourselves it will serve no one.
At Marah the water was bitter, but Christ healed the water. He can heal anyone that is broken.
At Rephidim, He performed an even greater miracle. Water came out from a rock, He created the water from nothing. Even if our faith is struggling or dying, God can bring us back to life. There is nothing He can not do. Nothing is over.
Seek the real Spirit and not the mock house. Ask yourselves if your Christian life is an illusion of the real thing or the actual real thing. Are you filled with the Spirit or just believe the theory of it? And if you don’t have it, seek the remedy because God is able and ready to give it!
|Your Truth and My Truth?||June 2, 2022/ Biblical Month 3, Day 2|
Today there is a lot of “your truth and my truth” instead of “the truth”.
How do we know who to believe when one is lying or misleading? I keep getting surprised throughout life by how easy it is for people to believe those I know are manipulating them and how hard it is to believe the ones telling the truth or the real victims. Did you know that liars often cry and ask for your sympathy and real victims often stay quiet expecting no one to believe them? People defamatory each other all the time with their false testimonies and they rarely get a chance to defend themselves. Many lives are destroyed because of it.
“Even with people that you can trust, if the truth is inconvenient, they don’t believe it.” (From Unbelievable)
Throughout life, I have seen women and men lie and manipulate their surroundings and they got away with destroying others’ reputations and friendships. And in part, I feel a longing for God to put these people on trial as they show no remorse and do not admit any fault and if you try to make them accountable they become even worse. They never stop harming. They can not lose, they will fight till there is nothing left of you if you try to “out them”.
And that is why most end up feeling safer staying quiet.
So why do Christians take the following command so lightly? A command as important as the fourth and sixth: “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour” (Exo.20:16)
If you want to be a real Christian.. if someone starts spreading stories about others with obvious contempt or in a way that shows malice don’t be so quick to either believe it or spread it. Or you will have to answer to God. To Him, this is very serious, and it is what Satan did to turn one-third of the angels and most men against Him and by it cause them to be lost. He first insinuated negative things about God and made his own motive seem to come from a place of concern. So be on guard for that too.
Proverbs 12:22 – The Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in people who are trustworthy.
Proverbs 6:16-19 – For there are six things the Lord hates—no, seven: haughtiness, lying, murdering, plotting evil, eagerness to do wrong, a false witness, sowing discord among brothers.
Psalm 12:2-6 – Everyone deceives and flatters and lies. There is no sincerity left. But the Lord will not deal gently with people who act like that; he will destroy those proud liars who say, “We will lie to our heart’s content. Our lips are our own; who can stop us? The Lord replies, “I will arise and defend the oppressed, the poor, the needy. I will rescue them as they have longed for me to do.” The Lord’s promise is sure. He speaks no careless word; all he says is the purest truth, like silver seven times refined.
|Crime Against Humanity in China?||May 18, 2022|
|The End Of The First World!||May 3, 2022 / Biblical Month 2, Day 1|
The end of the first world!
Now starts the second Biblical month. And so many biblical events took place in this month. It might be too much to list them all.
On the 10th day, animals and Noah and his family enter the ark. Seven days later the flood comes over the earth!
Construction of both the first and the second temple started at the beginning of this month.
It was the month the people of Israel were written into the genealogy lists.
The Lord speaks to Moses at Mount Sinai in the second year after they left Egypt, the second month is also the time Israel leaves Sinai.
It is the month Christ went to heaven!!!
It is also the month it was finally completely dry after the flood!
Remember I am sharing these things to help bring the Bible close to our everyday life, so consider re-read these events in the following days
|Happy Biblical New Year!!!||April 3, 2022 / Biblical Month 1, Day 1|
Unlike the Roman January, God’s new year comes in spring.
The time nature blooms. The time when in the Middle East, the first grains were harvested. The first fruit of the land. The time cattle, sheep, and other animals brought new life, their babies, to the world.
It was the time of first fruits, of birth, of new beginnings.
The month symbolizes that although things seemed hopeless, even the dead can come to life. Just like the new birth. No matter who we are or who we have been, we too can have a new beginning. He can, just like in nature, restore and give life to us. This month symbolizes new chances, hope, and restoration.
Unfortunately, ancient cultures abused this and worshipped birth/giving goddesses and nature itself. Focusing on the created rather than the Creator. A time of bunnies and colored eggs, empty religious traditions and formalism, and not the life-saving message of the new birth. Of God’s power to heal and change not just nature, but also our nature.
This famous conversation took place in the first month: “How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!”
Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. 6 Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. 7 You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” …16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life“ (John 3, 4-8 & 16).
He wants to set us free, see us bloom, and see us bear fruit. He wants us to be His first fruit. 14 days from the biblical new year start Passover and the 15th day starts the feast of unleavened bread.
Happy new beginnings!!
|How About A New Year Resolution?||March 29, 2022|
Only a few days till the Biblical new year. How about a biblical new year’s resolution?
If we demand someone earn our trust by mistrusting them, can good come out of it? Does not trust inspire trust? When people believe in us, we are inspired to change, to do good, and to be faithful. If someone does not trust us, we struggle to trust them.
Often we demand others earn our trust because someone else has failed us. We make others pay and work for others’ mistakes.
See how God treats man, willing to forget our transgressions and not make them come to His mind. Knowing if we are to make it, He has to show us He holds no grudge and is willing to renew His trust as if we never failed Him to begin with. “I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more.” (Isaiah 43:25)
Knowing this, Satan would like us to think God constantly holds our sins against us. This makes us stumble and fail.
God is showing us He believes in us, let us believe in Him!
|Are We All Blind?||March 17. 2022|
No matter what titles, education, or wisdom you have… At least four things visually impair a man/woman. Love, hate, fear, and desire. And if you have all those four working at the same time you become blind as a bat. It does not matter have advanced society gets, how intelligent someone is, this never changes.
|Is there a 13th Month in the ancient calendar?||March 3, 2022|
Tomorrow evening a 13th leap month is added to the Biblical calendar. You might wonder why as no 13th month seem to be mentioned in the Bible. One of the reasons is that the 13th month was called by the same name as the twelfth.
In the story of Ezekiel, we see him lying next to a tile for 430 days within a timeframe of 1 year, 1 month, and 23 days. This is impossible unless Ezekiel was disobedient and refused to do it OR if there was a 13th month that year.
So, to make it easy (or hard):
• 3,5 years with 365 days a year calendar (solar) = 1277.5 days
• 3,5 years in lunar years (without the 13th month) = 1239 days
• 3,5 years with 30 day month = 1260 days BUT makes shorter years and does not follow the seasons.
Did you know that in a prophetic calendar, there are exactly 7 leap months every 40th year? Did you also know that the prophetic calendar with its leap months is over time more accurate than the Gregorian calendar?
The Hebrew lunar calendar adds 7 leap months for every 19 years. This is exactly how long it takes for the moon to reach the same position in the same illumination, 19 years! Although the lunar and the prophetic calendar is structured differently, together with the solar calendar, they all adjust close to each other over time. This is why many use the Gregorian calendar to count and get similar prophetic dates. However, then they have to cheat, as the prophetic time given is not given in solar years.
|12th Biblical Month!||February 2, 2022|
This evening is the first day of the 12th Biblical month. On the first day of this month, God’s word against Egypt came to Ezekiel.
The 13th day was the day Haman had planned for the Jews to be killed.
When the Jews were permitted to fight back and won over those who hated them they created a feast of remembrance on the 14th and 15th of this month. They call it the feast of Purim.
On the 25/27th day of this month, king Jehoiachin was pardoned and brought out of prison to live in the palace in Babylon.
|Fruit Of The Spirit||January 29, 2022|
The fruit of the spirit is peace and knowledge. However, the spirit also convinces and exposes sin. How do you feel when you are exposed doing something wrong? Not peace? When confronted with sin we will most likely feel a different set of emotions like insecurity, shame, fear, pride, and anger. Why then, if we feel any discomfort or disruption of peace we assume the holy spirit is not present? Often we do not understand to separate the work of the spirit from our own response to his work. But if we listen to the spirit, the fruit will be peace. If we don’t we might chase it away and experience worldly peace. A false peace. If we fight the revelation of the spirit we will not have God’s peace. Remember to not let whatever mood or emotion you are in determine if the spirit is there or not. Let us all meet with the Lord today, and be open to whatever He wishes to tell us.
|10th day of 10th month!||December 15, 2021|
today is the 10th day of the 10th biblical month. On this day the Babylonian army sieged Jerusalem for 1,5 years. Their movements and trade were restricted by it. It was around this time the Ark of the Covenant was hidden and it was this Biblical date Ron discovered it in January 1982. Jerusalem was under siege by the same power they were influenced by in their religious observance. God could not protect them when they were not obedient to Him. He needs us to be faithful to protect us.
As everyone is rushing to celebrate a papal-instituted holy day, remember to be faithful to God. Don’t follow the beast.
|Another Biblical event day!||October 21, 2021|
New important Biblical date to remember the events of:
This evening starts the 15th day of the 8th biblical month. This date is historic and is connected to the downfall of the kingdom of Israel.
King Jereboam was scared of losing influence if his people went to Jerusalem to celebrate the Biblical feasts there. As a response, he created a new feast on this date and he wanted people to go to either Dan or Bethel to celebrate it (1Ki 12:32). The feast was a copy of God’s feast in the previous month (Sukkot – an eight-day feast, with gifts (blessings) from trees and lights). What was to strengthen the bond between the Israeli king and the people ended up separating the people from God and the truth. The sin was so great that God said it lead people astray in a way that He had to give them up: “And he shall give Israel up because of the sins of Jeroboam, who did sin, and who made Israel to sin” (1Ki.14:16). Copying God’s feast, in God’s name, and adding idol elements deceived and misguided them in the wrong direction.
For a couple of hundred years, they continued these traditions and bit by bit abandoned what sanctified them.
To learn more about the power of traditions with their holy days and the impact it has also had on Christians who followed in Jeroboam’s footsteps you can read my book “What is the deal with Sunday Laws” where I explain how people have been led astray then and now and in what way it changes God’s people. The link takes you directly to the PDF book (not a virus!): https://www.thirdangelsmessage.com/…/sundaylaws_LAST.pdf.
|The seventh month begins!||September 8, 2021|
Tonight starts the SEVENTH Biblical month. It was the last month before the agriculture season started over again. It is full of events and symbolism. The first day is the Feast of Trumpets, or if you translate from the law correctly: the Feast of Loud Sound. It was to alert the people to prepare for the Day of Atonement that came 10 days later. Both the Feast of Trumpets and the Day of Atonement are called a sabbath in the law. It was in the seventh month the year of release started (7th-year people were released from debts, slavery etc) and the year of Jubilee sounded (on the Day of Atonement). The 7th month was a great month in the Bible, bringing hope to mankind, for restoration and peace.
Five days later came the feast of Tabernacles. A week God commanded them to be happy and full of joy. Then the week ended and the eight-day follow, another holy day in the Bible.
Other events that took place on the first day of this month are:
– After Babylon destroyed Jerusalem: The Jews killed Gedaliah and this causes the people to be afraid and is the reason they wanted to return to Egypt.
– In the time of Ezra they built the new altar in Jerusalem. It is also the day he taught the people in God’s law.
On the 15th day of the month, the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles:
– Solomon takes the Ark from the city of David and into the newly built temple. The glory of the Lord, Shekinah, enters the temple.
– After the Babylonian captivity, the people keep this feast after building the altar.
– Christ arrives in Jerusalem and preaches to the people there.
On one of the days of the Feast of Tabernacles, the Pharisees try to have Jesus arrested.
On the 17th day of the month, the 3rd day of Tabernacles:
Noah’s ark rested upon the mountains of Ararat. The boat was no longer thrown around.
On the 21st day of the month (The seventh day of the Feast of Tabernacles):
-The word of the Lord comes to the prophet Haggai regarding the new temple.
On the 22nd of the month, the Feast of the eight-day:
-Jesus preach about the “living water” in Jerusalem.
On the 23rd day of the month:
-A woman taken in adultery is thrown before Christ’s feet to trap Him. Christ shows her mercy.

|Sixth Biblical Month Begin!||August 9, 2021|
This evening, the sixth Biblical month started. It was on the 5th day of this month God showed Ezekiel the sins of the people, the sealing of the faithful and remorseful, and the judgment over the others. It was also when Ezekiel saw God’s glory leaving the temple.
How heartbreaking! The same will happen to His church on earth in the last days. Some will be sealed, some will be judged. And if the whole church is rotten, He will remove His presence from them.
In the sixth month happened also something encouraging. It was in this month God, after the Babylonian captivity, strongly encouraged His people to rebuild the temple, promising He would be with them.
On the first day of the month came a word from the Lord to Zerubbabel (the governor of Judah) through the prophet Haggai.
And on the 24th day, the Lord “stirred up the spirit” of the people to rebuild the temple.
On the 25th day of this month, Nehemiah and the people completed the building of the walls of Jerusalem.
A lot of food for thought.
|The Devil’s old tricks?||August 2, 2021|
Is the devil up to his old tricks right before the close of probation?
|Biblical calendar||July 23, 2021|
Several ask me about the Biblical calendar. I made a month-by-month Biblical calendar that can be used every year. You fill in the Gregorian dates yourself. One version has different biblical events that took place on different dates and the other is blank.
It is not very well made, I used a program I am not used to. But you can make a nicer version yourself if you like. Remember having a Biblical calendar can remind you of Biblical events year around. If you can think of events I have forgotten please let me know!
|Riots in South Africa||July 15, 2021|
|On Sunday evening start the fifth Biblical month||July 7, 2021|
Events that took place then;
1st day – Aron dies at Mount Hor
1st day – Ezra and others arrive in Jerusalem
7th – 10th: Nebusaradan (From Babylon) burns down the temple and all the leaders’ houses.
|Biblical Calendar event||16 June 2021|
Today is the fifth day of the fourth biblical month. It was the day Ezekiel saw God’s throne in his vision (Ezekiel 1). A good day to read that chapter!
Sunday is when Babylon broke through the wall of Jerusalem and conquered the city after the long siege.
|Reminder: Last year we added two new books||May 11, 2021|
I have the past year or so written two small books in English. Unfortunately, they have not been corrected by someone who is educated in
the language as the other books have. But I still choose to make them available as a PDF because I think the studies there are still relevant even though my English is far from perfect. I wrote these because of questions I had myself on these topics. So if anyone is interested you can find the PDF links on my website Http://thirdangelsmessage.com/book
