When most people ask, “What time is it?” they really mean, “What part of the day are we in right at this moment?” They are interested in the smaller divisions of time, those that structure their activities between getting up in the morning and going to bed at night; but what is time? What is so special about it? And why is it important?
Time comes in small, medium, large, extra large, and super economy size.
If you have a toothache, and you call the dentist, your first question is, “When can you see me?” You are thinking in terms of the present day. If the person on the other end of the phone says, “Tuesday of next week,” They are thinking in terms of the week. When you ask, “Can you send me a bill, or must I pay at the time of the visit?” you are thinking of the month, hoping that the dentist bills at the end of it. If the reply is, “Yes, but there will be a 21 percent interest charge;” they are (hopefully) thinking in the terms of the year. If you think to yourself, “At that interest, I will still be paying for this when I retire;” you are thinking in the terms of a century (may you live to be 100 years old). When you finally get the bill, and it brings to mind the national debt, you are thinking in terms of 500 years or more. When you finally make the last payment on it and reflect back on it, you are probably thinking in terms of the age of the earth.
Why Measure Time At All?
Now, let’s look at time from the perspective of the dentist: there is a payroll to meet every Friday, rent every first of the month, taxes quarterly, and insurance annually, and then there are the business cycles of about 60 years. Every 60 years or so there is a severe downturn in business, and about every 100 years or so there is a major economic upheaval, usually followed by military activity.
Without time, it would be impossible to have the civilized social structures with their planning, high standard of living, and security that we enjoy today. Planning such things as concerts, ball games, or higher education would be impossible.
All Of Life Is Cyclical
You wake up, you get through your day, you go to sleep; the spring flowers grow, bloom, and go to seed; business picks up, flourishes, matures, then winds back down; nations rise, peak at some point, then decline: everything on earth is cyclical. Even the things that look linear frequently have a cycle that is so long that we simply do not see it. The longest known cycle at this time is the universe itself, and that is what a calendar tracks.
Scattered across the face of the earth are monumental astronomical observatories, the oldest and best known probably being the Great Pyramid of Giza, although some sun/star based ones in South America are as yet undated. The Pyramid itself has astronomical, geometrical, and mathematical data coded into it that we simply do not understand today; because the science has been lost, but the facts are easy to comprehend. Among the simpler ones that we have figured out are that its shadow falls on a different court tile for every day of the year. The real observatory was not located there, though, it was on the back and head of the Great Sphinx, which bears the markings used by those ancient astronomers from so long ago that its most prominent feature is weathered from rains, estimated to have been abundant from about 10,000 to 8,000 BCE, time-stamping it as over 10,000 years old. The calendar spoken of by both of these structures is based on the sun and stars.
The Maya culture in South America has a sun-based calendar that goes back 4 “suns”, each “sun” representing the time between cataclysms. It stops in the Summer of 2012 AD, with the prediction that there will be another world-wide cataclysm in that year which will de-populate the earth to a very few humans.
The earliest recorded use of a calendar in the Western culture was during the time of Noah and the ark. Genesis 6 clearly uses a calendar of 30 days each month, and 12 months to a year, with no named days. Noah had to insert these 4 named days in order to bring the calendar back into mathematical proportion to the sun, as 4 days had been added to the earth-year during the flood. He called them “days of remembrance” and they have come down to us as the 4 named days of Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter.
It is believed that Ishtar, the wife of Nimrod (Sargon 1), took the moon as a symbol of herself and had her astronomers devise a calendar based on that precept. It has come down to us today as the Babylonian, Chaldean, Hebrew, and moon calendars of India and China. As Nimrod conquered areas of the known world of the time, he imposed the calendar on the conquered peoples. During that time Egypt was in her flower and was unconquerable, and so retained her calendar based on the sun, along with her astronomical buildings that were constructed in such a way that the sun only touched the back wall on the days of the Spring and Autumn equinox, similar to the ones in South America and the temple in Jerusalem. Egypt adopted the moon calendar later on.
Our next reliable record is the description of Solomon’s temple which would reflect the sun into the inner part of the temple only on the Spring Equinox. We have recorded evidence that Solomon changed the nation to the moon calendar from Tyre late in life to please his wife from Tyre.
The next most reliable reference is the sun-dial of Ahaz: please note that this was not a moon-dial. A sun-dial has actually been found that archaeologists believe was similar to this one. It gives a reading of the day of the month in steps, then the hour of that day within each step. If so, that means that the calendar was put backward by three days at Hezekiah’s request, not three hours, as is commonly supposed.
The last reliable ancient references are in the New Testament, one being John 11:9: “Are there not 12 hours in the day?” This tells us that the “day” 2,000 years ago was divided into units equivalent to 12 double hours. The New Testament uses two distinct time frames for the “hour,” the Hebrew and the Roman. They were not the same, as the Hebrew day began when the first three stars appeared, while the Roman day began at midnight, and the days were divided into different “watches” by each group, with the Hebrews using the divisions of night, morning, and afternoon; while the Romans counted each four hour “watch” from midnight on through the entire 24 hour period for a total of 6 watches.
The Western world has attempted calendar reform on several occasions. One of the most radical was the one instituted by Julius Caesar when he came to power, in which he changed the beginning of the year from the Spring equinox to the Winter solstice, then proceeded to rearrange the number of days in each month and give them names of emperors instead of numbers.
Then the Julian calendar was replaced by the one developed by Pope Gregory XIII in 1582. This is the Gregorian calendar that we use today. Eleven days were dropped from the counting in the year 1582 in order to bring the year back into synchronization with the sun, because the calendar introduced by Julius Caesar was not accurate against sun time. The Gregorian calendar has since been reformed by dropping the leap years in years ending with zero, except in years evenly divisible by 400, because it was slightly over in its count in practical application.
An attempt at calendar reform was made by France during its revolution, but was not accepted among the other nations, and was soon abandoned.
Another attempt was made before the body of the United Nations within living memory, where it was voted down. The proposed calendar consisted of 8 days per week instead of the present 7.
None of the calendars since the first sun calendar were easy enough to calculate so that an illiterate person could know what day of what month it was, and in some places and times its publication was prohibited, yet the death penalty was passed on shop-keepers who opened on a forbidden day.
The original calendar, called the Jubilee calendar today, was sufficiently simple so that anyone who could count could track it without writing it down. The days of the month always fell on the same days of the week, and every month had 30 days, with one named day per quarter-year. We need such a calendar again today to simplify everything from our personal lives to international trade.

Celestial Orbits Are Irregular
The first thing to note about the Jubilee calendar is that it is based on the movement of the sun, the planets, and the stars, it does not take the moon into consideration because the moon is locked into earth’s orbit -“frozen” in earth’s gravitational field, and therefore is considered a part of the earth. The tracking of the moon and its influence on the earth is called an Almanac rather than a calendar.
The second thing to notice about the Jubilee calendar is that it takes the irregular movements of the celestial bodies into account. These celestial bodies have irregular movements in relationship to one another, but are not erratic. Their movements are very predictable. The earth moves around the sun in an ellipse, an elongated circle, not a true circle. Some years it completes the journey in a much shorter time than in other years, as we notice when spring or one of the other seasons comes early or late. This ellipse is the direct result of the gravitational pull of the seven planets closest to earth. When the earth is between one of them and the sun, earth’s orbit is pulled out in proportion to the gravitational pull of the planet. The more planets that are on the other side of the earth, the stronger the magnetic influence and the longer the orbital stretch. Since planets run on a reasonably accurate schedule, these elongated orbits are accounted for in the Jubilee calendar, in which entire one and two week segments are added at regular intervals. For instance, on May 5, 2000 Mercury, Venus, earth, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn will be aligned for the first time in 6,000 years. This will pull the earth’s orbit toward the planets, making our year longer than usual. The prior Autumn is the Jubilee, in which two weeks are added to the Jubilee calendar. The year prior to the Jubilee year is a Land Sabbath, in which a week is inserted into the calendar in the seventh month, for a total insertion of 21 days. The pull of the planets will exert a force sufficient to warp the earth’s orbit by 6 per cent, which will add 21.9 days to its year. Spring in the seasonal cycle and Spring on the calender will coincide because of this addition of weeks, bringing the mathematics back into line with the reality.
The last thing to notice about the Jubilee calendar is that it clocks not only our earth years, but also our galaxy years. An earth year (the time it takes the earth to rotate around the sun) averages 365.2422 days long over an extended length of time; and a galaxy year (the time it takes the sun to make one revolution around our galaxy called the Milky Way) is 7,000 earth years long. In addition, there is the precession of the equinoxes, the movement of the spring Equinox back through the Zodiacal signs at approximately the rate of 2,160 years per sign, or about one degree every 72 years, for a total of 25,920 years per complete cycle. This is called the Great Year. This backward rotation was not present in the days of Enoch, who clearly states that the sun and stars have a year of 364 days exactly. The additional 1 ¼ days and backward rotation came about in the days of Noah’s flood and Hezekiah’s movement of the sun back on the sun-dial.
The Same Numbers
Another thing to notice about the Jubilee calendar is that the same numbers tend to come up again and again. The base numbers are 2, 3, 5, and 7: the others are all either multiples or fractions of multiples:
6 = 3 x 2
12 = 3 x 2 x 2
30 = 3 x 2 x 5
72 = 3 x 3 x 2 x 2 x 2
350 = 7 x 5 x 5 x 2
360 = 3 x 2 x 3 x 2 x 3 x 2 x 5
700 = 7 x 5 x 5 x 2 x 2
1,080 = 3 x 2 x 3 x 2 x 3 x 2 x 5
2,160 = 3 x 2 x 3 x 2 x 3 x 2 x 5 x 2
An earth year averages 365.2422 earth days long. It is the basic unit from which all other calculations are derived.
A galaxy year is 7,000 earth years long. It is 7 x 5 x 5 x 2 x 2 x 5 x 2 x 3 x 2 x 3 x 2 x 3 x 2 x 5, mathematically speaking.
A Zodiac year is 25,960 earth years long. When Enoch wrote his book, he was clear that the stars completed their year in exactly 360 days, along with the sun. There was no precession of the equinoxes in his day, nor were there weeks added to the calendar as is necessary since the flood of Noah’s day. The precession occurs because the earth has slowed in such a manner that its face does not look at the same point at the exact end of the year, as it did in Enoch’s day. It is somewhat slower, and has not quite arrived at the exact point where it was the year before. It takes 25,960 years for it to make one complete turn and get back to facing straight forward at the exact end of the year again.
About The Decimals…
It takes the earth 365.2422 days to complete its rotation around the sun, on the average. This number is a result of roughly 2,000 years of observation. The messy part is the .2422 on the end; what to do with it? We have tried a variety of methods to include them, but seem to miss the mark, and the calendar becomes too unwieldy for the average person to track mentally. The Jubilee calendar has a neat solution that anyone can handle; it saves them up until they amount to a nice full day or a full 7-day week, then inserts them and makes them a holiday so that everyone can enjoy them. These remainders are added into the calendar at the intervals of 4 days each year; 2 weeks within the year; 1 additional week every 7 years; 2 additional weeks every 50 years, except the 350th and 700th when only one week is added; and the full 2 weeks every 3,500th year and 7,000th year.
So, the divisions of time in the Jubilee calendar, which is based on the numerical relationship of the celestial bodies, is as follows:
60 Minutes Make An Hour
Our system of the chronograph watch comes down from the Roman system of counting time, which used 6 hours for a day, each hour amounting to 4 current hours. Our familiar friend, the Geometric Year number of 360 shows up in the division of the hours into 60 minutes and each minute into 60 seconds precisely mirroring the astronomical circle: 6 hours in the day times 60 minutes in each hour = 360, a complete circle. It originated from the division of the circle of the sky into 360 degrees, and when the watch was invented it was simply transferred to the circle on its face, with each culture using the numbers and units familiar to them.
It is a compound of 6 x (5 x 2), mathematically speaking.
12 (Double) Hours Make a Day
The original counting of time divided the earth-rotation into 12 parts, each called an hour (John 11:9). They came down in the English tradition as a “double-hour”. This is the origin of the current confusion over the 12/24, AM/PM designations: the original systems have been extant side-by-side for many hundreds of years, with neither having the predominance. Both systems are still in use today, with the military using the 24 hour designation, while the civilian population uses the double-12 designation.
The earth makes one rotation in its axis in 24 hours, but it also travels in its orbit around the sun during that time, therefore the two must be added together before the earth is in the same relationship to the sun as it was at the starting point. To do this, 3 minutes and 56.55 seconds must be added to the earth’s day. Whenever mathematics is applied to circles and orbits, there is always a remainder. In order to make life livable for the mathematician, round figures were used in the less critical applications, so the earth’s day is shortened to a round 24 hours for ease of use. Over long spans of years, however, the more precise number needs to be used.
The mathematical relationship is 3 x 2 in the Roman system; 3 x 2 x 2 in the double-hour system; or 3 x 2 x 2 x 2 in the 24-hour system.
7 Days Make A Week
The first 7 is found in the week, where there are 7 days. This number is arrived at by dividing the number of days in an earth year by 50, yielding 7.30. Since the 1/3 of a day is less than half, it will have to be accounted for in the overall total during the year. It amounts to 2 weeks, which we will meet again in the accounting for the year.
The reason to have a 7-day week is that the same calendar day always falls on the same day of the week, year in and year out, Jubilee year or common year. It is known, also, that the human body has a cycle that tends to lower the blood pressure, respiration, and heart rate late Friday afternoon and return it to normal late Saturday afternoon. This occurs in everyone, religious and atheist alike, so is not an artifact: why it happens is unknown, it just does.
30 Days Make A Month
The number of months in a year was settled at 12 to reflect the 12 divisions of the Zodiac. Each month has 30 days: each sign of the Zodiac has 30 degrees. Each day travels through one degree of one sign of the Zodiac. The 30 days are further divided into tens, called by the foreign term “decans” by some persons. There are minor constellations scattered across the sky above and below the 12 major (Ecliptic) signs: each of these secondary signs is assigned to a ten-day unit of time. When they are put into outline form, they tell a story. The Greek version is called “Jason and the Golden Fleece.” The tale of Jason encompasses almost every constellation in the sky: the ship Argo and its companions cover many in the southern sky; while Hercules and his labors cover most of the northern sky.
All of the signs have an abundance of folklore about them and what they portend for the future, all couched in symbolism appearing to refer to the past. The greater bulk of mythology, however, is directly attributable to these prophecies-inside-a-story directed toward the future.
91 Days Make A Season
When the earth year of 354.2422 days is divided into 4 parts to reflect the weather patterns, it comes out to 91 days plus that ever-present remainder. Since three 30-day periods work nicely into the mathematics, they are designated as months, leaving one day to account for: this is easily done by adding it to the grouping at the very beginning and giving it a name instead of a number. The very first day of the first set of three months in the year does not belong to any month: it is named Spring. The very first day of the second set of three months is named Summer. The very first day of the third set of months is named Autumn (or fall in the northern hemisphere, because of the falling leaves). The very first day of the fourth set of months is named Winter: that makes a total of four sets of 91 days each, for a total of 364: 360 numbered days reflecting the Geometric Year, and four named days reflecting the actual physical year. One day and the ever-present remainder are saved up for the Land Rests and the Jubilees.
360 Days Make A Geometric Year
Because finesse is not always necessary on a scale of 1 to 9,467,077, a system of rounding is in place which uses the round (remainderless) number of 360 degrees in the mathematics concerning the arc of the heavens rather than the actual 365+ degree figure that would turn any mathematicians hair gray with remainders. The difference over 72 years is nothing to the 6th decimal place, so it is used for the everyday calculations. In order to differentiate it from the “true” or astronomically accurate number, it is given a different name, the Geometric Year. It cannot be used as a calendar year, only for rough and ready calculations in every-day astronomical mathematics.
364 Days Make A Jubilee Calendar Year
Since 25,920 (the Precessional year) divided by 72 (the Geometric day) equals 360 (the Geometric Year), and the actual earth year is 365.2422, some adjustments must be made between mathematics and reality. This is done neatly by again dividing the year into 4 equal parts to reflect the reality of the seasons giving us 91 days in each part, or 3 even months and one day each quarter. The 3 months times 4 seasons takes us back to the 360 days, with 1 day left in each quarter. This is duly inserted as the beginning of each quadrant, leaving only 1.2422 days to carry over. When these left-overs are gathered into segments of one week, they are duly inserted at a later date, but what we now have is a year containing 364 days, which amount to a nice, even 52 weeks, and this is the measure that the Jubilees calendar assigns to it.
365.2422 Days Make An Earth Year
Although 360 makes nice short, neat calculations, and 364 is a nice, comfortably livable division, the earth actually takes 365.2422 days to complete its journey around the sun. This leaves a lot of remainders to gather up into units later. It also makes a rather messy situation of the 7-day week, what with the result being 52 weeks with a .177457 remainder. Since liveability is a primary consideration, the 7-day week is retained in the Jubilee calendar, with the left-overs from the 52 weeks gathered into liveable units of 1 week each and inserted at 7 and 50 year intervals. The really “astronomical” lengths of time require the use of this more precise number in order to avoid the mathematical nightmare of figuring how many days have been added, or not added as in the case of the 350 year intervals, and come out with a figure that is mentally comfortable as accurate. Every form of counting has its uses.
50 Plus 2 Weeks Make A Year
A year is the time it takes one body to rotate around another body; for instance, the time it takes the earth to complete one rotation around the sun is one earth year; the time it takes the sun to rotate around its central object in the center of the Milky Way is one sun year. It is necessary to specify which body the year is in reference to in astronomy.
50 weeks make an earth year, but the nagging remainder from the weeks needs to be accounted for, and this is done by adding two weeks to the 50 in a year’s time. They are added in the Spring and Fall season, and are accounted holy, or special, because they fall outside the allotment of 50. They are separate and apart from the counting of the 7-day intervals, having derived from a separate mathematical operation. The first outside week falls out as the third week of the new year, which starts at the Spring equinox. The second outside week falls out as the third week of the seventh month, exactly half an annual cycle later. The Hebrews still count them as holy, and celebrate the first week in the Spring as their Passover week; they take the third week in the Autumn as their Feast of Tabernacles. Even though they fall within the counted days of the month, they fall outside the counted weeks of the 50-week year.
7 Years Make A Land Rest
The next grouping takes 7 earth years and groups them together. At the end of 7 years, the remainders that have accumulated from the intervening years amount to 7 additional days plus the ever-present remainder, and these full days are inserted into the calendar in the 7th month as week number 1, for a total of 53 weeks in that year. All the other days, weeks, and months are moved back to accommodate this insertion. These days are given their own name, so are not called by the usual calendar names or numbers. They are Land Rest 1, Land Rest 2. and so on.
50 Years Make A Jubilee
The next accumulation of remainders are gathered up every 50 years, at which time they add up to 14 long days, which are added into the year as Jubilee 1, Jubilee 2, and so on through 14. They are situated between the 10th and the 11th day of the 7th month, so the calendar reads: 7/9, 7/10, Jubilee 1, Jubilee 2……Jubilee 14, 7/11, 7/12. “Long” days means that there were not quite enough remainders to fill 14 full days, as these accumulations are just a tiny fraction of a day over the actual accumulated total, so every 350th and 700th Jubilee only one week is added to correct this mathematical difference.
Genesis 6 speaks of 120 Jubilees (not days, as the King James renders it): it is 6,000 years long, or 120 x 50 years (1 Jubilee) long, mathematically speaking. There is no place in the Scriptures where this is spelled out, because the knowledge is assumed to be known by everyone, since everyone in those days was aware of the Jubilee calendar and its divisions and multiples.
The year 2000 AD is a Jubilee year. On May 5, 2000 Mercury, Venus, earth, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn will be aligned for the first time in 6,000 years; and this will stretch the earth’s orbit by about 6 per cent; which will add 21.9 days to its usual orbit of the sun. These extra days are added into the base of 364 days by the means of the Land Sabbath, which will be in 1999 and add one week to the calendar, and the Jubilee in 2000, which will add an additional 2 weeks to the calendar. These additions will keep the seasonal changes and growing seasons in syncronization with the calendar.
A brief note about calendars: according to the Hebrew moon almanac (tracking of the moon is called an almanac, not a calendar: calendars always track the sun), the Roman year 2000 will be 5761. This almanac/calendar uses the start date of August 13, 3760 BCE, the day that kingship was given to mankind, and is not astronomically-based. The year 2000 is the astronomical year 6000 because it has been 6,000 years since the planets have been in perfect alignment.
72 Years Make A Sun-day
The sun ticks off 1 degree of the Great Circle in the sky every 72 years in Geometric time, figured as 25,920 divided by 360. In Sun time it is 25,920 divided by 365.2422 which actually yields 70.966608 years, but when that is multiplied back to arrive at 1 degree of the circle, that is, 70.966608 x 365.2422, it yields 25,919.9971. When 72 is multiplied out by 360, it yields 25,920, a difference of 0.0029, which is inconsequential in that short period of time. Since 72 and 306 are so much easier to work with, they get the nod to do the work for the short time spans.
350 Years Make A Great Jubilee
By the time the Jubilee calendar has run its course for 349 years, it is just at one week too long, so this is accounted for by decreasing the number of days added on that Jubilee from 14 to 7, maintaining the integrity of the 7-day week in which each calendar day always falls on the same day of the week year after year, yet keeping it in time with the sun.
700 Years Make A Grand Jubilee
700 years is 14 Jubilees, and also one-tenth 1/(2*5) of a sun year. It is also a multiple of 350 (7 Jubilees), therefore it allows only 7 days to be inserted into the calendar during this Jubilee.
2,160 Years Make An “Age”
Just as earth has 12 months, so does the Zodiac: 1 Zodiac month takes 2,160 years to complete. This astronomical unit remains embedded in the English language in the adopted Greek word “aeon”, and in the properly used phrase, “age of Aquarius.”
Since there has been a great to-do about our entering the age of Aquarius, which began in the first week of February 1997, some mention will be made of what it means. Since the precession of the equinoxes is 25,920 years per cycle, the spring equinox moves slowly back along the Zodiac each year. When it leaves one sign – a sign is one twelfth of the circle of the heavens – and enters another, we leave one “age” and enter another “age”: in this case the spring equinox has occurred in the sign of Pisces for the past 2,160 years, but beginning with the equinox of 1997 will occur in the sign of Aquarius for the next 2,160 years.
Folklore tells us that all of the great natural disasters of the earth occur about the time of these changes of the “age”. There has been great public fear concerning the turning of a thousand years, but this us unfounded: the true concern is in the turning of the age: if there are going to be great natural upheavals, and all folklore from the Aztecs in South America to the Hebrews in the Middle East say that there will be, they will happen within the next 30 years or so. All folklores agree that they will center around a shift of the earth’s crust, causing volcanic eruptions, major fires, and wind-storms, called Typhoons, gauged in the hundreds of miles per hour as a result. The “religion” of Mithras is based on the ancient predictions of these occurrences at this time.
Mithras is one of the many names for the constellation Orion. He is called the bull-fighter, because he kills the Zodiac sign of the bull, Taurus, in the depictions of him that have come down through the ages. The legend of Mithras tells us how he does it through a stylized picture.
This picture shows Mithras/Orion astride the bull, with his foot trailing along the back leg of that of the bull, his left hand holding the bull by his nose, and his right hand plunging a dagger into its neck just above the shoulder. At the point where the daggar enters the bull, instead of blood, heads of wheat are shown. The wheat refers back to the heads of wheat held in the left hand of the sign of the Virgin, which is the first of the signs in rank order. A note of interest is the location of the strike: the small constellation of Pleiades, a group of 7 stars, one of which is Alcione around which our Milky Way is said to orbit, and is reputed to be the home of the Most High God by the Hebrews: it is also the origin of the out-of-control star that the Greeks call Electra and the Hebrews call Satan that is now in an elliptical orbit around the Pleiades and our sun.
Many depictions of Mithras also include a dog, others of the less significant constellations, and, on rare occasions, either 7 or 12 unidentified objects that would be thought of as footlights by today’s theatre-goers. These last objects are a key to the whole representation: they are the planets in our solar system, and tell the time-frame when this bull will be slain.
On 5 May of the year 2000, all 7 of the closest planets will line up with the earth so that a straight line could be drawn through the centers of the 9 bodies. When this happens, the planetary gravitational pull is increased by 6 percent, enough to stretch the equator of the earth like a rubber band toward the sun on one side and the planets on the other. While this is coming into play, there will be discomfort in the crust of the earth, and things will start to happen as the magma inside earth’s core starts to move in response: the el Nino’s will become more exagerated since they are a result of a chain of active volcanoes on the floor of the Pacific Ocean; this change in the face of the sea will trigger changes in the air-flow above it, causing major weather changes, which in turn will drastically affect the crops of the earth.
Then, after the planets pass their conjunctions and begin to go around the other side of the curve, the earth tries to return to as circular a configuration as possible: this unstretching triggers massive volcanoes and earthquakes as the lumpy magma inside the earth gets squeezed like toothpaste in a tube. With the large number of eruptions, the sky is filled with black dust so fine that it enters the lungs of everything that breathes it, suffocating them. The sun is blocked from the earth’s atmosphere severely lowering the surface temperature, causing winter to descend in the middle of summer as it becomes cold enough to snow. Crops cannot grow. Food-wars break out.
These changes usually preclude mass-migrations and, consequently, wars between the migrators and the settled peoples of the areas into which the migrations pour. The magnitude of the combination of conjunctions of certain planets whose individual conjunctions cause electrical, radio, and electromagnetic disturbances to which the human body is not immune is unknown: what is known is that personal crime risis, civil disorder rises, and kings and dictators rise as a result, making this a time of national and governmental upheavals.
The river coming from the foot of Orion has been variously described as fire or blood, but everyone agrees that it is red. In fact, it pictures the final battle of the wars for human political supremacy which will take place in the Jordan River Valley in Israel, when the blood of the armies will flow up to the horses bridles for its full length of over 200 miles. The name of the river in its ccurrent form and the name of the Jordan translate identically into English: they are the same name, only in different languages.
Another occurrence pictured during this scenario is a hot rock shower of massive proportions. Whether it is from the effuvia of the volcanic eruptions, or earth’s passing through a field of bolides that heat up when entering earth’s atmosphere is not spelled out, only that large hot rocks will fall like rain.
Whether the time spoken of requires only these 7 planets, or all 12 to be in one straight line is not clear from the representations; but the Aztecs predicted the next world-wide disaster to be in the form of the earth’s crust moving, and predicted it to occur 23 December 2012, in line with the time of the passing of the planets into a plane that would cause the earth’s crust to shift from one line of stretch to another, opposing one.
Another factor that may be active here is the return of Electra, the star that was spun out of the constellation Pleiades and now runs in an elliptical orbit around the Pleiades on one end and our sun on the other. We have no knowledge of its travel times or next arrival date, but the ancient astronomers did. It could well be the “comet” that has caused so much devastation on earth and has given all comets a bad name, depending on how close to earth it travels on its way around our sun.
But all prophets predict a remnant of mankind will survive, and they will need an accurate calendar.
3,500 Years Make A Grand-Grand Jubilee
Every 3,500 years gathers up another week of left-overs from the previous days, so another week is added to the calendar in that year to bring it into synchronization with sun time. Since it would ordinarily be a 1-week addition, it simply becomes a 2-week addition instead, retaining the familiar pattern.
7,000 Years Make A Great-Great Jubilee
Earth is not the only thing moving in the universe: everything else moves, too. The sun also rotates around a central pivot point inside the Milky Way, our home galaxy. It takes the sun 7,000 years to complete its own orbital rotation within the Milky Way. The pivotal point of the Milky Way was thought by the ancient astronomers to be the star Alcyone in the small constellation Pleiades in the shoulder of the sign Taurus.
Since it would normally have only one week added (being a multiple of the 700th year when only one week is added) it actually has 2 weeks added instead. The year 2000, which is actually the year 6000, also has 2 weeks added to the year.
12,960 Years Make A Grand Precessional Year
One-half of any great measure is called a grand measure: half of a Great (Precessional) Year is a Grand (Precessional) Year. Beyond that, its significance has been lost in the mists of time.
25,920 Years Make A Great Precessional Year
(Precession of the Equinoxes)
The earth is not upright on its axis in its orbit: the gravity of the sun and moon pull it slightly out of true. Because it oscillates in its tilt from between 22.4 and 21.5 degrees, it also loses some of its steam in its forward travels, so that it slowly turns backward in the way it faces. This slow backward turn is called precession, and it is tracked by the location of the spring equinox along the Zodiac. It takes 25,920 years to complete one turn of its face. Since this is longer than the average lifetime, the cycles have been divided into smaller portions that are somewhat easier to track, and whose numbers appear in stone carvings from India to China to South America and back again. These numbers are:
The most common numbers found in mythology are 432, 540, and 1,080, their halves and multiples.
Because these numbers are a peculiarity of the earth’s rotation rather than external astronomical events, they are not figured into the addition of weeks into the Jubilee calendar. No account is taken of them beyond noting that they exist for a reason, and are usually, if not always, astronomical allegories.
Each age has a name, and it is the name of a constellation on the ecliptic, the circle around the middle of the earth that is level with its orbit, not its axis (that is called the Equator). These signs have been around since the beginning of recorded history. The extra-biblical writings tell us that the Most High God gave the Jubilee calendar with its signs and ages to Adam and Seth, and that Seth wrote them down. All of the alphabets of the earth derive from a notation reading the equivalent of a specific date over 3,000 years ago. The transmission of this calendar and its knowledge has been transmitted through an office with the title, “King of the earth and father of nations,” a title Melchizedek passed on to Abraham.
The Zodiac is divided into 12 signs, each having 30 degrees of arc. These change as the earth rotates: each day consumes roughly one degree of arc. These 12 signs are currently called:
- Virgo (Virgin);
- Libra (Scales, but the ancient sign was a lamp);
- Scorpio (Scorpion, but the ancient sign was called “eagle”, the master of the scorpion, because the sun actually spends 18 days in Orphecius, the serpent-holder, and the eagle was his symbol);
- Sagittarius (archer);
- Capricorn (Goat-fish);
- Aquarius (Water-bearer);
- Pisces (fishes: one plural, the other dual);
- Aries (Ram);
- Taurus (Bull – actually a Reem, an extinct elephant-sized bull);
- Gemini (Twinned, the lovers);
- Cancer (Two asses between the stalls); and,
- Leo (Lion).
And Now …
The universe is a calendar and watch that keeps perfect time to a known 25,920 earth years: all dates and times are dependent on it, and those who have strayed from it to other methods have had to re-set their calendars to sun-dates because of the agricultural cycle throughout human history. It rules man’ activities, from the food that its energy grows for us to eat, down to getting up and going to bed each day. We can agree among ourselves to call the days something else, but Spring fever will not be denied its course.
Further, the counting of the Jubilee calendar is so simple that it does not require a printed piece of paper to track: anyone can do it without any help, once they understand it.
There have been movements to “modernize” the calendar since Nimrod’s mother decreed it be based on the movement of the moon, but none have succeeded. The Hebrews have a written prophecy that a movement away from the Roman calendar will in no way succeed until a remnant of the Northern 10 tribes returns and a king is anointed over re-united Israel: he will restore all things to their original state of purity, including the calendar. This same prophecy is preserved in the New Testament under the phrase “the restitution of all things” which included the temple with its two obelisks standing “like widows” in the court, the one acting as a sun-based clock, and its mate functioning as a sun-based calendar.
When the Jubilee calendar is reintroduced by the king of the returning remnant of the 10 northern tribes, yet another cycle will have come full circle.
