Jewish, Nissan or God's Calendar
Fundamentals of the Cycles of the Moon

Bible Prophecy / Think Tank

Class One


In this Bible Prophecy class we shall understand deeply the Jewish or the Nisan calendars as it relates to the biblical context throughout the Old and the New Testaments of the Bible. A clear understanding of the Meaning of the term "Weeks of Years" and the definition thereof will be grasped by the student. The Hebrew term "Shebha" meaning years, the term "week" referring to Weeks of Years or "7 Years", not weeks of days, "7 Days" as is on our calendars at home, is essential knowledge for the understanding of the biblical time-lines.

Follow-on classes will progressively allow students to become more and more proficient in the use of and the application of the Bible Prophecy fundaments as is described in the Bible. It is very important that the student learns that Easter is not on the typical calendars hanging up on our walls at home. The students will all learn how to determine where Easter is found on our calendars and know that the LORD God does not abide by or go by our calendars on our walls.

We shall briefly focus on "the meaning of the Fourteenth Day" as is mentioned in the biblical scripture and the Commands given to us by the LORD God. 

We are living in the modern times as is described in prophetic scriptures, in the books of Daniel, Ezekiel and in Revelation. The Mark of the Beast described in Revelation 13:17 can only be understood using advanced tools of today's micro computer techniques and technologies using Microbiology. We are witnessing right now Events in the news that are described with stunning accuracy in Bible Prophecy; events pertaining to the prophesied modern times, the appointed times that are pointing directly the events taking place right now today in Israel. We can trace through scriptures of Bible Prophecy and see how the Bible precisely predicts the current events in the news, specifically in the Middle East, in the most troubled lands of our modern world of today. The map of the Middle East depicts this troubled region. (See map below.) The Secretary of State John Kerry was commissioned by President Barack Obama to make shared arrangements between the Israelis and the Palestinians in an attempt to keep global peace. The Bible is stunningly accurate giving seemingly a blow-by-blow account in Prophesy of the things that have already occurred; things that are occurring right now and things that are just about to occur.


Of extreme importance, the Seven Seals, the Seven Trumpets and the Seven Bowls reveals stunning revelation and has gotten the attention of many Bible scholars who focus on Prophecies in Bible being revealed right now in our modern times, The Appointed Times, pointing right to our modern times of today.

We shall review the necessary  fundamentals needed for correct understanding of the calendar that is used by our LORD God.



The Twelve Jewish Calendar Months

Base on Cycles of the Moon

1 Nisan  
2 Lyar  
3 Sivan  
4 Tammuz  
5 Av  
6 Elui  
7 Tishrei  
8 Heshvan  
9 Kislev  
10 Tevet  
11 Shevat  
12 Adar  

Jewish / Nisan Calendar: Twelve Months Based Cycles of the Moon from the 1st Jewish Calendar Month of Nisan to the 12th Jewish Calendar Month of Adar. (Note: This calendar shows the agreed upon months of our calendar from January to December that are used for the observance of holidays.) 
Recall our calendars hanging up on our walls at home are not base on the Cycles of the Moon and are not the calendars the LORD God is going by. 

As the student attend classes each week for two weeks, the students would note that, if the moon phase were a NEW MOON that night, say on a Thursday night, then the very next week, exactly 7 nights later, the moon would exhibit a HALF MOON phase. The next week after that, another 7 nights later, the moon would exhibit a FULL MOON, completing a lunar cycle of  "fourteen Days".  The student will note that exactly fourteen (14) days after the occurrence of the FULL MOON, a NEW MOON will return as exhibited on the very 1st night of class.


The Moon Phase goes from a NEW MOON (the 1st day) to a HALF MOON (the 7th day). 

"Fourteen Days" after the 1st day of class, the moon goes to a FULL MOON (the 14th day).

 Another "Fourteen Days" is required to return back to a NEW MOON from a FULL MOON.


BE REMINDED: The LORD God is NOT going by the calendars handing up on the walls in your homes. (After 365.25 days ALL those calendars go into the trash.)
We searched the scriptures and found that the Lord God gave many commands such as given in Exodus 12:1-2, 6, (see above screen) where in a firm understanding of and the meaning of the term Fourteenth Day is essential. 

We reviewed Bible verses:

containing the terms “the  Fourteenth Day”

Exodus 12:6

Exodus 12:18

Leviticus 23:5

Numbers 9:3

Numbers 9:5

Numbers 9:11

Numbers 28:16

Joshua 5:10

2 Chronicles 30:15

2 Chronicles 35:1

Ezra 6:19

Esther  9:15

Esther 9:17

Esther 9:18

Esther 9:19

Esther 9:21

Ezekiel 40:1

Ezekiel 45:21

Acts 27:33

We also reviewed Bible verses

containing the terms  “in the new moon” and/or “in the sabbaths”

1 Chronicles 23.31

2 Chronicles2:4

2 Chronicles 8:13

2 Chronicles 31:3

Nehemiah 10:33

Isaiah 1:13

Ezekiel 45:17

Ezekiel 46:3

Hosea 2:11


An in depth review of the commands, many dealing with the Feast of the unleavened bread and of the Sabbath Day 

Exodus 20:11

For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.


This clearly shows us how important it is that we deeply understand the time-lines and the appointed times as is commanded in scripture, and the fact that the LORD God intends us to be "synchronized" with His actions, as we absolutely CANNOT be synchronized with ourselves and expect to be in sync with the LORD God.

Let us review the biblical meaning of God's Appointed Times

In Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and throughout the scriptures the parishioners of the Bible went out in the evenings to witness and to observe the Moon phases to warn and sound the bugle for the appointed times as instructed by God so that great multitudes would all report precisely at their appointed times after the "fourteenths days" and the correct Moon Phase based on the Nissan or the Jewish calendars. 


Leviticus 23:5

In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the Lord's passover.


Numbers 28:16

And in the fourteenth day of the first month is the passover of the Lord.


Let us pretend we are on a spacecraft a million miles away from Earth. We observe the Moon's orbit about the Earth. Our Space Calendar for the month of February of 28 days shows the Phases of the Moon for each day.
We notice it takes FOURTEEN DAYS to go from New Moon on Feb 14 to a Full Moon on Feb 28, Two Weeks on our calendar; that is FOURTEEN DAYS on the Jewish or Nisan Calendar.



The computer generated images show

29.5 Days of Moons sped up every 3 seconds.

My main purpose for these Bible Prophecy / Think Tank classes has always been first of all to give Honors to God and the LORD and Savior Jesus Christ, to support the Vision of my Pastor, Reverend Dr. Lee P. Washington and to support the ministers of the church, as well as give our students the tools they will need for the correct understanding of Bible Prophecy.
