THE MOST IMPORTANT VERSE
IN THE BIBLE
Being “in sync” with God is a matter of Eternal Relevance.
Missing the “Appointed Times” by one day is FATAL!
Imagine one day you wake up and the news is full of headlines announcing the disclosure of the REAL existence of Alien life in the universe, and that these Aliens were coming to visit the earth. They had just announced that they wanted to meet specifically with YOU, by name. They also specified that they would only meet with YOU on a very special day, and that they would know that YOU were “the one” chosen to be “in sync” with their plan for mankind by your knowing exactly when that day occurred. Only “the chosen one” would know when that day actually occurred in the astronomical timetable set by the positions of the sun and moon relative to the earth. Such a one would have to be “in sync” with Nature and “Nature’s God”.
They further revealed that if you missed that special appointment, even if only by one day, that you would be killed, because that day was so important, and marked the day that their plan would begin for the restoration of the earth, and the deliverance of mankind from all wars, disease, poverty, ignorance, fear, prejudice and hatred.
How important would it be to YOU to MAKE THAT APPOINTMENT?
Then, the next day, the Aliens revealed THE DATE…
The 14th day of the first month of the solar year!
If you make that appointment, the Aliens would then use YOU to help them with their plan.
If you miss that appointment, YOU will be killed, because YOU claimed to be a “chosen one” but now are revealed to be an IMPOSTER, and not “in sync” with the Universe.
The above is a PARABLE…
But it truly portrays what YOU are going to be presented with in the very near future.
YOU are going to have to KNOW when THAT DATE IS.
Your Eternal Life will depend on your making that appointment EVERY YEAR for the rest of your life… IF you wish to be a part of “The Plan” for this earth and mankind.
Do two men walk together unless they have made an appointment?
So, how are you going to know exactly when THAT DATE occurs every year?
Let’s consider the only book on earth that CLAIMS to be from ALIENS… The BIBLE.
The SACRED ASTRONOMICAL CALENDAR of these “Aliens” was revealed to the ancient Israelites when these Aliens miraculously delivered them from slavery in Egypt about 1400 B.C. It was an awesome event! And it also happened on THAT DATE!
In the Book of Exodus, the first month of the earth’s solar year was revealed to these Israelites.
1 Now the LORD said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, 2 “This month shall be the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year to you.
So, to properly calculate THAT DATE, the 14th DAY of the First Month, one must properly determine the 1st DAY.
The problem is that NOWHERE in the Old Testament does it specify EXACTLY HOW that is done!
And neither, after these many centuries of modern times, has such a method been found in the New Testament.
NOW, The VERSE has been found that reveals EXACTLY HOW TO CALCULATE the 1st DAY of the 1st Month of the solar year of the SACRED ASTRONOMICAL CALENDAR!
“Then they led Jesus from Caiaphas into the Praetorium, and it was early; and they themselves did not enter into the Praetorium so that they would not be defiled, but might eat the Passover.”
The KEY phrase in The VERSE is “eat the Passover“.
The eating of the Passover was ALWAYS kept by the Israelites after the sunset that began the 14th Day of the 1st month, which was commonly called Abib or Nisan. The Passover was sacrificed “between the two evenings”, which is known as twilight, occurring from sunset until dark.
Therefore the Jews, in the time of Jesus, being one of the Tribes of the ancient Israelites, were still keeping the evening of 14th as the time to “eat the Passover” in accordance with Exodus 12:6. But the evening of the 14th that MOST of the Jews were keeping that year in 30 A.D. was one evening later than the Passover that Jesus ate with His disciples. Notice that John 18:28 shows that these Jews would not enter the Praetorium because then they would become “defiled” and could not “eat the Passover” that began the next coming evening after this day that Jesus was in the Praetorium ended at sunset.
Therefore, the Jew’s 14th Day Passover was one evening later than Jesus’s 14th Day Passover!
Given the above one day difference in “eating the Passover”, it is also crucial to know that at that time in history, most of the Jews were observing the New Moon as the first visible crescent – the initial sighting in Jerusalem of the New Moon – as the 1st Day of the first month. For confirmation of this, see a good article located at below link. Notice especially the excerpt below taken from page 5.
“From the most ancient Jewish records in existence, including the Mishnah, there is no hint that the Jews before, during or after the time of Yeshua (until at least the middle of the fourth century) determined the new moon in any other way than by sighting the visible sliver of the new moon! Based on these facts, we can be absolutely certain that Yeshua and his early followers (the authors of the Apostolic Scriptures or New Testament) determined the new moon’s advent, the beginning of the biblical month and, hence, the biblical calendar and the biblical feasts based on the visible sighting of the new moon’s crescent! We can find no evidence to the contrary that they determined the new moon in any other way.“
BUT NOW “evidence to the contrary” HAS BEEN FOUND!
NOTICE THAT AN OBVIOUS CONFLICT EXISTS over when to “eat the Passover“.
John 18:28 states that the Jews did not yet “eat the Passover“. This statement was made in the early morning hours of the same day that Jesus did “eat the Passover” with His disciples at the twilight hours that began that same day about 12 hours earlier. This was the 14th Day Passover that Jesus kept.
Now, if both Jesus and the Jews at that time, did “eat the Passover” on a “14th Day“, then Jesus must have started counting the month one day earlier than when the Jews starting counting.
This means that Jesus started the month one day earlier than the first visible crescent sighting of the New Moon.
This means Jesus kept the “dark moon” – the New Moon CONJUNCTION – as the 1st Day of the month of Abib.
So, if we want to be “in sync” with Jesus, who is The “Alien” Creator, then we must start the first month of the year with the first New Moon CONJUNCTION that occurs AFTER the Spring Equinox, using Jerusalem as the world reference point (Ezek 38:12).
Then we can make the NEXT APPOINTMENT (HOLYDAY) for the NEXT BIG EVENT in His PLAN which depicted by the 7 “APPOINTED TIMES” that we are strictly commanded to be ON TIME FOR in Leviticus 23.
That NEXT BIG EVENT is Holyday #2 – The Desert Miracle !
The VERSE, the ONLY VERSE in the entire Bible, that enables us to be ON TIME for these “appointments” is John 18:28!
The “Alien” Creator of all that exists has not left us in the dark about WHEN TO MEET WITH HIM on His SEVEN APPOINTED TIMES – HIS SEVEN ANNUAL HOLYDAYS.
NOW we know HOW to determine WHEN to meet with Him.
DON’T BE LATE!
1 The LORD spoke again to Moses, saying, 2 “Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘The LORD’S appointed times which you shall proclaim as holy convocations – My appointed times are these:
