God's Timepiece

Monday, May 10, 2010

Welcome. If you are interested you can look at an unusual graphical view "God's Timepiece" the one He designed to help us keep track of His set apart, holy appointments with humankind.

It is our amazing solar system!

Inove's Solar System Scope provides a unique way to view our solar system. Its takes a minute to load and you may need to install Adobe Flash. There's another view from that well worth a look. It allow you to pick and object in our solar system and map it at anytime ou choose.

In my Scripture study I've found God's Biblical appointment calendar uses the repeating cadence and syncing of solar and lunar time. This is because the moon, like all solar system objects moves in orbit around the Earth but as it does it also orbits the Sun with our planet. In that way, the Moon has its own motion in the sky in addition to that caused by the Earth's rotation.

This unique computer model let's you view God's timepiece from many angles, dimensions and reference points in any point in time by simply using your computer mouse.
As you can see, God does not base His Biblical calendar on man's interpretation which is relegated to a solar calendar alone as established by Roman Popes, but rather on the perfectly precise mathematical movement and ordinance of YHVH's creation timepiece.

Try it out to view the 3-D mechanics and alignments that show the signs, times and seasons of our solar system on any of God's appointed Feast Days. Important Note: "Solar Scope System" is not a development of My Scripture Studies and any content is solely provided by Copyright of its developers Sunaeon, SRO.
The solar system's mathematical perfection clearly demonstrates the nature and set apart (holy) perfection of our Creator. Genesis 1:14-15 gives us the reason for the design and orbit timing of our solar system which is linked perfectly to our location in it:

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
In the beginning, God declares that the reason he created the sun, moon, stars and planets. The first reason is to provide a timepiece for the world to know His "seasons". This Hebrew word is "moed" מוֹעֵד and it actually means "appointed time and place". Our Creator fixed the earth on two complex but unchanging movements: axis rotation and solar orbit to give light to the earth by day and by night we can see the moon's orbit.

The moon is fixed on three unwavering movements: axis rotation, earth and solar orbit to give waxing and waning light to the earth by night. In fact, the axis rotation of the moon is absolutely matched with it's orbit around the circumference of the earth. That is why the face of the moon, like our Creator never varies. On any given day during the lunar cycle, the moon that you see in the sky today looks exactly as it did to Columbus or the builders of the pyramids.

Within the earth's "rotation" on its own axis, YHVH synchronized the earth with the moon's "orbit" so that these would provide an exact and precise astronomical timepiece with the moon serving like the hand on a clock so that everyone could know when each appointed days of The Lord's festivals will arrive because the biblical calendar uses both the sun and moon to divide time.

Let's look at that verse again from another angle:
And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs ['owth אוֹת] and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. Genesis 1:14

'Lights to divide the day for signs'.

Interesting perspective. Seems there is more there in Genesis than the stars, the moon or a sunset.

For example, the Hebrew word 'owth אוֹת is amazing. It's made of the letters 'aleph', 'vav' and 'tav'. Aleph = strength, vav = nail and tav = cross or covenant. Aleph can also mean truth. The Hebrew word 'alluwph comes from aleph, it means master, or intimate leader and friend. The olde English Kings James calls it 'Duke' in Genesis 36.

So, when we dig into the pictograph meaning of the Hebrew letters of the word 'owth אוֹת we can see the message:

'The master's true strength was nailed to the covenant cross'.

It's hidden there in plain sight in the Hebrew letters of Genesis 1. Reminds me of Jesus teaching Nicodemus about the sign of Moses that we sometimes don't tie together with John 3:16.
“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal LIFE. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:14-16
Take note too, Jesus then went on to talk about light.

The link below may not work well on a touch screen or phone, but on a PC you can zoom in on the center of the diamond pattern. The map represents a snapshot of the path of 4 full solar eclipses that are visible above the Temple Mount over a 35 year time span up to 2034. The geography coincidentally (or not) highlights the Genesis 15:18-21 land deed given to Abraham.

The eclipse dates are:

1) 8/11/1999
2) 3/29/2006 (2422 days after #1 or 346 weeks later)
3) 8/2/2027
4) 3/20/2034 (2422 days after #3 or 346 weeks later)

Two of the eclipses has passed. The first in 1999 appears to the east of Israel. Perhaps, coincidentally, in the land to the east King Hussein of Jordan died and was succeeded by his son as Abdullah II in 1999. Seven years later in 2006, the eclipse path was to the west. Gaza sits on the western border by the Mediterranean. There, the terrorist organization Hamas won the majority of seats in the January 26th elections for the Palestinian Legislative Council. That occurred three weeks after Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon suffered a massive stroke on January 4th which left him in a coma just 90 days after the disengagement was completed in September 2005.

The 2027 eclipse path passes down through Egypt and seven years later the 2034 path crisscrosses the 2027 eclipse path as it heads west to east through Egypt through Saudi Arabia on the 1st of Nisan, 14 days before Passover that year.

It will cross the Red Sea (Yom Suf) directly below the exact route through the sea that is now thought by many to be the historic path taken by Israel 3,500 years earlier at the Gulf of Aqaba. The eclipse path tracks under Egypt's Nuweiba Beach and the underwater land bridge beneath the water of the Gulf of Aqaba across to Saudi Arabia to Jabal al-Lawz (aka Mountain of Almonds aka Mount Sinai) in the Tabuk Province of Saudi Arabia.

The scientific research and coral evidence of sunken "Egyptian Chariots" now point to the Gulf of Aqaba as the most probable location of the actual Red Sea crossing at the time of the exodus from Egypt as detailed in the Book of Exodus.

The 2034 eclipse path is not directly over the Exodus route to Mount Sinai. It is further south and it crosses the Red Sea and Saudi Arabia above Medina.

There may be more to look at... the eclipse time windows show an interesting time frame from the date of the 8/11/1999 eclipse to the 3/20/2034 eclipse = it's 12,640 days. That's 35 Biblical (360 day) years.

Reminds me Luke 3:23. History tells us that Herod died in 4 BC, so it is thought Messiah was born in Bethlehem between 6-4BC and that the Passover cross occurred @ 30-32AD. Looks like that 35 fits right in there.

This may be a bit quirky, I know but there's another thing when we look at the 12,640 days and weeks of the 35 year eclipse series: 1+2+6+4=13 and the 346 weeks: 3+4+6=13.

Thirteen... there were 13 families in the Numbers 1:20-47 census of Israel although Jacob had 12 sons. Joseph had two boys, Ephraim and Manasseh in Egypt, Jacob said that instead of Joseph, his two sons will be counted among the 12 tribes to inherit the land and Joseph was given a ridge from the Amorites (Exodus 48:22) and Levi was not given a land inheritance because they were a nation of priests for all 12. The 12 names numbered are:
1. Reuben 46,500
2. Simeon 59,300
3. Gad 45,650
4. Judah 74,600
5. Issachar 54,400
6. Zebulun 57,400
7. Ephraim 40,500
8. Manasseh 32,200
9. Benjamin 35,400
10. Dan 62,700
11. Asher 41,500
12. Naphtali 53,400
Levi, the 13th priestly tribe was not numbered for an inheritance so the total was 603,550.

Just so happens, the number of people counted there at the last supper was 13 too... the 12 disciples and Yeshua representing the High Priesthood in the Order of Melchizedek (Hebrews 6:20).

The thing to remember is this, the path dates were all there in God's design when He spoke to Abraham and gifted the land as an inheritance:
On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram and said, “To your descendants I give this land, from the Wadi of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates: the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaites, Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites and Jebusites.” Genesis 15:18-21

The map above shows the area promised to Abraham by our Creator. It was queried from an amazing eclipse tool (eEclipser ©2006-2016 Xavier M. Jubier) using the Temple Mount's coordinates at Latitude: 31.77804 Longitude: 35.23542.

NASA's animations of the four eclipse paths in 1999, 2006, 2027 and 2034 are shown below...

YHVH established His appointments by the design and mechanism of the solar system at the time of creation. His Feast Calendar determines His "appointed times" for His Sabbaths or Feasts when He meets with His people along the timeline of His seven part plan of redemption and restoration. 

These are the set apart appointed days known today as: 1) Pesach, 2) Unleavened Bread, 3) First Fruits 4) Shavuot, 5) Yom Teruah, 6) Yom Kippurim and 7) Sukkot. 

They take us through the seasons of Spring, Summer and Fall and show us God's complete seven point plan of salvation and restoration. That is why they are so important and why God says they are forever. Forever is FOREVER! They show us God established His plan of redemption at the time of creation. God's solar system is the basis for His Biblical Feast Day calendar in which God pre-determined his appointed times for his Sabbath Feasts when He instructs his people to meet with him each year. God created all the moving parts if His clock, even the rotation of the earth governs the time of counting each day. It is the spin that we all live and sleep by. 

Both the solar year (earth's orbit around the sun), the lunar month (the moon's orbit around the earth) and the day (earth's rotation on its axis) are set by YHVH. The Biblical month's all begin with the darkness of the new moon and God's Feast Days with the exception of Trumpets Day all fall later on specific days of each Biblical month. 

There are even three Feast Days in which we are instructed to appear before God in Jerusalem. The "Big Three" are: 1) Pesach, (Passover) 2) Shavuot (Harvest) and 3) Sukkot (In-gathering). Both Matstsah (Unleavened Bread) and the First Fruits harvest are a part of the Spring Feasts. Trumpets Day (Yom Teruah), Atonement Day (Yom Kippur) and Tabernacles (Sukkot) are the "unfulfilled" Fall Feast Days of YHVH. You can use the "Solar System Scope" or "thelivesky' to look at the planets as they align during any Feast Days. 

Below is a calendar for the next five years.

Update December 23, 2016: The Apostle John provides a vision in Revelation regarding God's timepiece:
And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.  She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth. Revelation 12:1-2
