Every year, more Christians become curious about the relevance of those “Jewish” holidays to their own spiritual lives.

After all, they were all observed with great enthusiasm by Jesus, His apostles, his disciples and nearly all first century and second century believers.

When did they stop being relevant to Christians and why? What happened long after Jesus’ death, Resurrection, the destruction of the Temple or even hundreds of years later that caused believers to abandon these biblical “Feasts of the Lord” in favor of new traditions? And since we read about them coming back in prophecies about the Coming Kingdom, why don’t we know more about them and observe them today?

If you’re not sure about the answers to these questions, Hebrew roots teacher-pastor Mark Biltz, the discoverer of the “Blood Moons” phenomenon, explores them in his new book and movie combination “God’s Day Timer.”

Nobody teaches about the feasts quite like Mark Biltz. In fact, it was through his deep studies of the feasts that he shocked the world with his “Blood Moons” discovery that demonstrated how lunar and solar eclipses coincided in patterns on these high holy days and mysteriously marked big moments in the history of the Jewish people over thousands of years.

Could it be they are much more than “Jewish holidays”? Could it be they are actually God’s eternal “appointed times” to meet with all of His people? Could it be they are actually much more important to His people – Jewish or Christian – than any of the traditional “holidays” man has created over the last 2,000 years? Could it be they are also signals that God is still at work in our world today and is using them as “dress rehearsals” pointing to His Second Coming?

With the 2016 fall feasts all coming in October, get Mark Biltz’s “God’s Day Timer” book and movie combination today to learn about the rich spiritual experience you’ve been missing and to prepare for a new level of relationship with the One True Eternal, Unchanging God of Israel – the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.

TODAY IS THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS!

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...

I finally GET IT!!! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!
 
I often wondered about Revelation and the 1260 days. When I did the math according to our calendar today, with the idea of a 7 yr deal in Daniel (when I believed there would be one), I came up with 7.19 years. When I took it to my pastor (at the time that we went to church, and they believe in a pre-trib rapture) I asked him to explain why there was an addition .19 of a year. He couldn't answer it for me. And what he did say was silly in retrospect.
 
BUT...given the idea of a lunar calendar, which makes absolute sense since the moon is the same each cycle, the years come up to 7.
 
I am glad I asked. I am going to copy this and keep it if you don't mind, for future reference. Hope that's ok!!!

How do we know for a fact that we are observing the days on the right dates? How can we biblically understand that? Where does the Bible say about the dates being wrong??

You guys are such a great help to people like me who are trying to obey God at His word. Thanks!!



                       

In a nutshell, the real Calendar given to Moses was SOLAR based on fixing the new year on the spring equinox. Moses was raised as an Egyptian, which also followed the SOLAR and not a Lunar-Solar Year. The Egyptian calendar used at Elephantine, Egypt in consisted of 12 months of 30 days length. The Egyptians knew this was not acceptable and simply added and additional 5-6 leap days each year, at the end of their year. The days were simply not counted until the summer equinox came, and thus they began their new year! Day 1 all over again. Very simple.

The Hebrew Calendar given to Moses by God was the same as the Egyptian, but starting with a different month. The year started on the spring equinox (March 20-21) instead of the summer solstice (The Egyptian new year about June 21). See Exodus 12:2 for the Bible reference to this. Notice God wasn’t changing Moses’ calendar, just the date of the new year! The Bible shows beyond any shadow of a doubt that God's calendar only has 12--- 30-day months (that's only 360 days, the true year BEFORE the Flood of Noah) and that 5 1/4 days of each year are simply NOT COUNTED!

Look at the book’s of Daniel and revelation.

Revelation 11:2a-3b?They will trample on the holy city for 42 months. ...And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days

Divide 1,260 days by 42 months and you will get a 30-day month. Twelve months of 30 days equals 360-days in a year. What is the meaning of this divine number in contrast with the fact that we know the time required for the earth to circle the sun is approximately 365.25 days?

When 1,260 Days = a time, times and half a time In the Book of Revelation

Revelation 12:6?The woman fled into the desert to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days

Revelation 12:14?The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the desert, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent's reach

In verse 6 above, the time given is 1,260 days. But in verse 14, the time given is described as a time, times and half a time. This is most often interpreted as 3 and one-half years or 42 months. So verses 6 and 14 as noted above yield a 30-day month. Twelve months of 30 days equals 360-days in a prophetic year.

The answer is that the Bible has been written with a "PROPHETIC YEAR" defined as 360 days in length. This is only applied to biblical prophecy. And it is important that to attain the 360-day year, you must let the Bible interpret the Bible.

When 1,260 Days = a time, times and half a time In the Book of Daniel

Daniel 7:25?He will speak against the Most High and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws. The saints will be handed over to him for a time, times and half a time

Daniel 12:7?The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, lifted his right hand and his left hand toward heaven, and I heard him swear by him who lives forever, saying, "It will be for a time, times and half a time

In both Daniel 7:25 and Daniel 12:7, the time given is described as "a time, times and half a time". This is most often interpreted as 3 and one-half years or 42 months. When the prophecy of the 70-weeks is interpreted using the 360-day prophetic year, divine guidance appears to be revealed in human events from ancient history into the 21st century.

In each 42-month period foretold, the earth is to be directed by unrestrained evil. The 360-day year makes for a good relationship between the books of Daniel and Revelation.



Many today do not believe in the flood, but the evidence of the great flood of Noah is found everywhere and no place better than the calendar, any calendar!  Before the flood, the earth was formed perfectly and the calendar was also perfect! The pre-flood humans followed a 360 day, twelve month calendar with each month have exactly thirty days! After the flood however, all hell broke out for mankind trying to keep the old "perfect" calendar. The earth had trillions of tons of extra water weight and slowed down! 5 1/4 days slower to be exact! Ever since, man has tried to make the calendar perfect again, but we cannot! The moon now circles the earth in only 29.5 days, so lunar months are no longer accurate (a lunar year is only 356 days long) Post flood mankind worked on calendars for generations.

Genesis Proves the 360 Day Year

Based on the book of Genesis, the calendar at the time of Noah consisted of 12 months of 30 days. At the beginning of the flood, the water came forth on the 17th of the month. Five months later on the 17th day of the month, the book of Genesis reveals that 150 days had passed. Dividing 150 days by 5 months supports that the early calendar contained 12 months of 30 days length. Therefore, the book of Genesis supports the 360 days per year calculation. Here are the supporting Scriptures.

Genesis 7:11?In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, on the seventeenth day of the second month--on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened

Genesis 8:3?The water receded steadily from the earth. At the end of the hundred and fifty days (150 days) the water had gone down, and on the seventeenth day of the seventh month (5 months later) the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat

Since the book of Genesis is attributed to Moses by conservative scholars, it is credible that the 360 days per year was in use at the time of Moses.



The Egyptians finally decided on a fix for the calendar that is actually more accurate than the calendar we follow today! Even with our modern calendar, we lose a day every four years (leap year) and we almost never know how many days are in many months (28, 29, 30 or 31????) The Egyptian and Moses' calendar had 12-30 day months EVERY YEAR and 5 and 1/4 "no days". This calendar never needed adjustment! Passover, and all Holy Days (except the weekly Sabbath fell on the same date each year!)

 In Moses' calendar that "fixed date" is the spring equinox to make sure Passover always fell on the same solar day! Proof of a 12 month 30 day month year? Revelation says that 1260 days ARE 3-1/2 years OR 42 months! Do the math! It is PLAIN and simple. The Bible answers all of it's own mysteries. Proof that Jesus did not follow the Jewish Calendar? His Passover was 1 Day BEFORE the Jewish Passover! Nobody ever notices that fact..... Even the Armstrong's can't figure out the holidays because they never understood that the calendar Christ was following was the one that Moses followed and NOT the one the Jews were following then.

Look at the front page of The Plain Truth today we have up 3 story's covering all the information on The Feasts of Trumpets and why we still follow it today. They are all good informative story's worth taking a look at.
Here's the beginning of part of one story:
