Today is the 7th Month of God's Year! Called Trumpets

By Bob Barney

New month

Today is a special "New Month" Day.  Bible's translate the beginning of each months, as New Moon festivals, because at one time, before the flood, new moons started the new months. This isn't true today, so the best translation would be New Month Festivals....  This month, the 7th Month of the year is the most sacred month of all of God's 12 months.  It's the month of feasts, fasts, and festivals.   This month symbolizes the return of Christ, End Time troubles and the coming millennium, as well as when there will be a New Heaven and new earth when God the Father Himself will actually dwell with us!  

God’s appointed times (also known as feasts) which are written in Lev 23 consist of 7 separate events which are “remembrances of God’s grace in time past” as well as “prophetic shadows of things to come”. Even though these feasts have been branded “Jewish feasts”, it is very clear that these were called “My feasts” and “LORD‘s feasts” by our Heavenly Father (Lev 23:2,4,37).

Contrary to popular belief, Yeshua (the Hebrewl name of Jesus, simply Joshua in English and Jesus in Greek), His Disciples and even the highly misunderstood Apostle Paul, did not teach or abolish God’s Law. Just as God’s Commandments will stand till Heaven and Earth exists, The “Feasts” or “Appointed Times” of God (which are part of God’s Law), is, and will be in effect in the time to come. Out of the 7 events asked to be remembered, God has fulfilled 3 of these prophetic events in the time of the first coming of Messiah.

As Christians, we all look forward to the Second coming of Christ. In today's articles, we will study the Prophetic significance of the “Feast of Trumpets” and the coming of our Messiah. The Feast of Trumpets IS THE FIRST DAY of the 7th Month--- a special "New Month" Holy Day or Sabbath Day!

 I often mention that God's calendar is NOT like any other calendar on earth today.  It is not the Roman calendar that we follow, or the equally pagan Jewish calendar that many churches believe is the calendar of God.  To read more about God's Calendar click here .  There is a mistake that those who follow a Jewish calendar has made, and that refers to the word for new moon.  That is a mistranslation, as the proper rendering should be NEW MONTH, as I did in The Plain Truth's Red Letter Bible.

The Hebrew word 'chodesh', which is Strong's Exhaustive Concordance simply means "new" or to "rebuild." Chodesh does not mean "new moon". It means 'new' with an implication that a month is about to begin again.

Originally, when the earth had a perfect 360 day rotation around the sun, and the moon's journey around the earth was exactly 30 days (today it is 29.5 days), new moons where on the new months. The calendar was in balance. However, probably after the flood, the weight of water slowed the earth rotational spin (this is NOT mentioned in the Bible) to 365.25 days a year and the moon's rotation to the present one of 29.5 days.

Calendar.1

The ancients noticed that the months were no longer 30 days and the years were not 360 days, but now over 365. A calendar needed to be made to reflect this. Egypt made the first perfect calendar, one Moses was very familiar with, which had 12 - 30 day months and then 5 days at the end of the year that did not count. This is also seen in Enoch's calendar (see illustration on left).God's calendar was like the Egyptian one except that year no longer started on the first day of summer, but on the first day of spring. Springtime is the birth of the new year in nature, as morning is the start of the day as well. The term for new moon became "new month" as the new moons and new months no longer matched up. This is not hard to conceive as the English word for month comes from moon! Yet our months have nothing to do with new moons! The same applies to God's calendar.

THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS! It is for Christians

Forward By Bob Barney: The following is a great scholarly look at today, and why it is an important day to CHRISTIANS! Most of these writers in today's edition of The Plain Truth follow a different day than we believe is the true date of this holy day (holiday). Why? Most Sabbath observing churches follow the Jewish calendar, which we have shown to be not the calendar of Moses, or Jesus. The modern Jewish calendar is based on their Babylonian captivity and Jesus did not follow the same calendar that Jews were following at his time. This is why his Passover was a day ahead of the Jewish Passover! We will have more on this during the feast... 

The Book of Life and Rosh Hoshanah (the Feast of Trumpets)?

By COGwriter

image from messianicpublications.comIn the Churches of God (COG) which had origins in the old Worldwide Church of God, we keep various biblical holy days, including the Feast of Trumpets, called Rosh Hashanah by most Jews. Does this Holy Day have any applications for Christians? Did the ancient Jewish teachers know something about this day that most who profess Christ do not seem to realize?

The Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hoshana) begins the evening of the first of Tishri (a month that almost always begins in September on the Roman calendar).

According to current Jewish tradition,

After Rosh Hashanah services, as the congregants leave the synagogue they say to each other... "May you be inscribed in the Book of Life"" (The Jewish Holiday of Rosh Hashanah. High Holy Days on the Net. http://www.holidays.net/highholydays/rosh.htm verified 9/12/07).

The Biggest Global Warming Lie NOW EXPOSED!

U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer 3rd Class Shannon Eubanks pulls herself out from the Arctic Ocean during ice-rescue training Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2018, about 715 miles north of Barrow, Alaska. (U.S. Coast Guard photo by NyxoLyno Cangemi)

Less than 10 years remain before the oft-claimed "tipping point" for the planet, but sea ice in the Arctic Ocean is the highest it's been in nine years, increasing more than 30% from last year, while the Antarctic's level is well above normal.

He noted the Arctic Ocean gained a record amount of sea ice during the first week of September.

"Most years the Arctic loses ice, but this year ice extent has increased" more than 77,000 square miles, he wrote on Twitter, adding the news likely would not be reported by CNN, BBC News or the New York Times.

Meanwhile, the sea melt this summer was the lowest in 15 years, and the expanse of Antarctic sea is well above average.

The Future of Europe, according to the Bible

Broken Now, but will reform into The Beast of Revelation!


Age of schism in west...

Five hundred years ago a political and religious crisis tore Europe apart. Now the continent is entering another age of schism. It is no secret that the European Union is in severe crisis. Besides the challenge of Brexit, the established order is threatened by a range of other schismatics and heretics to the south, east and indeed within the Franco-German core. What is less well understood is that in many ways we have been here before – 500 years ago, when the Reformation tore Europe apart.

Around 1500, most of our continent was shaped by a single geo-ideological and geopolitical order, or at least a common imaginary. Roman Catholicism reigned supreme from the west coast of Ireland to the eastern borders of Poland and Lithuania, from Norway’s North Cape to the heel of the Italian boot. A wronged wife in Yorkshire could appeal to the papacy for justice if necessary. You had to go quite far east or south-east to encounter the rival Christian order of Orthodoxy in Muscovy and much of the Balkans. This was the result of an earlier schism in the church, creating a second Rome in Constantinople, and after the fall of that city a Third Rome in Moscow. Europeans referred to their continent as “Christendom”.

This order was already under some pressure. The Roman Church was generally perceived to be in crisis. Clerical ignorance and corruption, for example the sale of “indulgences”, were increasingly regarded as intolerable. Demands for reform were widespread. In England, one of the great realms of Europe, the common people chafed under clerical abuses, and the monarchy under papal constraints on its authority. Ever since the Middle Ages, the parliamentary statute of “praemunire” had made it illegal to sue for justice in a foreign court, at least with regard to high matters of state. When all was said and done, though, the sense of inhabiting a political commonwealth was deeply ingrained throughout most of the continent.

What the Bible Says About the Future of Europe:

image from cache.eupedia.com   Make no doubt about it, there will be a "strongman" of Europe. He will be a man, not a woman. When he appears (and I don't know when) he will convince the civilized world that he is the greatest person who will have ever lived. He will be more popular than Jesus, and will fool many people. In fact, Jesus said that unless God loved His elect, even they would be deceived! Paul calls this evil man "The man of lawlessness." The man of lawlessness in 2 Thessalonians 2:1–12 is an antichrist who will come on the world stage at the beginning of the Day of the Lord. This Day, sometimes called the “end times.”  He is given the title “man of lawlessness” because he will oppose God's Law, just as the Catholic Church and most so-called Christian Churches do today!   Daniel 7 speaks of this man as a “boastful” king who will “try to change the set times and the laws” (verses 11 and 25). He will come offering a false peace and prosperity to the civilized world and will with his media-star- personality, convince everyone that he is a great human being.   He will be able to perform fake miracles, bring nations together in a global government,  and  align religiously with the Roman Church and the Pope, the False Prophet, and also an Antichrist.  They will make a covenant with Israel for three and one-half years (cf. Daniel 9:27, where “seven” indicates seven years). In the middle of the seven years, the man of lawlessness will break his covenant with Israel, stop their sacrifices (Daniel 9:27), and enter the temple to set himself up as “god” and demand worship (2 Thessalonians 2:4). This is the “abomination that causes desolation” that Jesus spoke of in Mark 13:14.

Two beasts are described in Revelation chapter 13, one from the sea (vs. 1) and one from the land (vs. 11). With the beast out of the sea, we come to that one who, regardless of his claims as the white horse rider or peace maker, comes as a great source of darkness into the world. He comes not to save the world, but to damn the world. In essence, what we have in this chapter in the rise of the beast and the false prophet is nothing short of the ‘trinity from hell’ in that both are the product of the machinations of that old serpent, the devil or Satan.

My view, which is NOT BIBLICAL, but just a hunch, is that this strongman of Europe will ride in on a wave of populism which is now raging worldwide, but unlike what people needlessly fear in Donald Trump, this man (maybe another billionaire) will use Trump's "game plan" to fool the world. The big difference of course is that the main stream media will anoint him, as they did Obama, as a savior!  The media is evil, controlled by the prince of the airways (Satan) and will always get it wrong when it comes to predicting evil people.  So, again, in conclusion, I will not doubt for a minute that we may see, appearing on our TV screens, a liberal billionaire who will come to prominence in Europe.  He will probably be German (but maybe Italian of Germanic decent).  Isaiah chapter 10 predicts that the antichrist or beast is Assyrian.  Assyria IS modern Germany!   Dr. Herman Hoeh wrote in "Germany in Prophecy!": "When the ancient Greek writers wanted to distinguish the Assyrians from the Arameans or Syrians, the Greeks called the Assyrians, 'Leucosyri' - meaning 'whites' or 'blonds' as distinct from the very brunette Syrians who still live in Mesopotamia." (Plain Truth, Jan. 1963, p.17). By the time of Christ, the Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder recorded that the Assyrians were now dwelling north of the Black sea (Natural History, IV, 12, p.183). By this time, they had moved north.  But they did not stop there, as Herbert Armstrong wrote in The United States and Britain in Prophecy: "The Assyrians - before 604 B.C. - left their land north of Babylon and migrated northwest - through the lands that are now Georgia, the Ukraine, Poland, and into the land that is called GERMANY today. Today the descendants of those Assyrians are known to us as the GERMAN people" (pp.143-144, 1980 ed.).

For centuries, the German people have dominated the heartland of Western Europe. Yet they are a people who know very little about their true origin - or at least refuse to know. The Germans themselves are responsible for hiding much of this knowledge, just as many tried to hide their past at the end of the Hitler era. Just as the modern-day Israelites are one family of people from many different tribes, so too are the German people today. They number well over 100 million people worldwide - most of them residing in Germany and Austria.

We know who the nations of the world are. This knowledge, from God's word, enables us to understand the news today, and why and where things will happen - what to expect - and everything we need to know.

The STRONGMAN of EUROPE will appear on the world stage and when it happens - TROUBLE is about to hit the fan.......

In case you haven't noticed recently, the world in which we live seems to have lost its bearings, sliding toward some sort of dark abyss, both in America and across the world.

No doubt, you're familiar with old problems such as murder, war, theft, disease, homelessness, hunger, lying, economic turmoil, religious strife, lusting, adultery, fornication, unwanted pregnancy, abortion and people having a lack of care and concern for their fellow man.

But these days there are a host of new concerns that have many people shaking their heads in disbelief.

I Knew-Updated A Bob Barney Commentary

By Bob Barney - The Plain Truth.com   Originally Published in 2013 Updated on Sept 11 2021

NwoWhen Edward Snowden came forward to identify himself as the leaker of the National Security Agency spying programs, politicians and the media alike, from left to right have been working overtime to discredit the man who some actually view as a hero for revealing crucial information the government had kept secret. Apparently, if you think hiding information about spying on Americans is new, and that it took some 29 year-old nobody to reveal these secrets, then you are a part of the great silent majority of Americans who have kept themselves in the dark. The real problem is not that our government is spying on us, it is that this has been known to anyone with a micron of a brain since the 1970's! I am amazed at the fact that I could be Edward Snowden- and have never worked for the NSA, CIA or the United States Government!  In fact, I know of many more secrets than he has revealed, and have known many of them since the 1970's!

For example: I knew all of this (with links to the stories):

In the 1970's I knew that:

1   Kennedy had the President of South Vietnam assassinated because he was becoming a national patriot. President Johnson believed what Richard Nixon always knew: that the Kennedy White House did not merely tolerate or encourage the murder of Ngo Dinh Diem, but organized and executed it because he was turning against USA policies that would eventually end up in the slaughter of some 60,000 young American drafted, and tens of thousands more maimed for life! It's part of the record. I know it from reading, not from working for Uncle Sam. Three weeks later, Kennedy fulfilled Jesus' prophecy: “Those who live by the sword, will die by the sword” when he himself was gunned down in Dallas. Oh, by the way, anyone with a brain that can connect three dots knows what and who was behind that....
