The Day the Old Calendar Dies
The Day the Old Calendar Dies
Speaking of the New Jerusalem, Revelation 21:22-27, “And I saw no sanctuary in it, for the Master, Yehovah Almighty is its sanctuary, and the Lamb. 23And the city had no need of the sun, nor of the moon, that they might shine in it, for the glory of Yehovah illuminates it, and its lamp is the Lamb. 24And the nations of the ones saved will walk in its light; and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it. 25And its gates may not at all be shut by day, for no night will be there. 26And they will bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it. 27And there shall not enter it any thing that defiles, or he who practices abominations and lies, but only the ones having been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb.”
Revelation 22:5 tells us, “And there shall be no night there: they need no lamp nor light from the sun, for Sovereign Yehovah gives them light. And They shall reign forever and ever.”
Isaiah 24:23; “Then the moon shall blush [blood moon? Forever? But it will not be gone], and the sun shall be ashamed [pale, delayed, forever? But it will not be gone], when Yehovah of Hosts shall reign in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem; and before His elders is His glory.”
Isaiah 60:19-20: “The sun shall no longer be your light by day, nor for brightness shall the moon [moon, Strong’s 3394] give light to you; but Yehovah will be to you an everlasting light, and your Divine One your glory. 20Your sun shall no longer go down [STOP moving! NO MORE DAYS DETERMINED BY SUNSET!!], nor will your moon [lunation, Strong’s 3391, month] withdraw itself (go dark, i.e. at the New Moon conjunction, it will STOP moving! NO MORE LUNATIONS, OR LUNAR MONTHS!!); for Yehovah will be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended.”
John the Revelator continues Isaiah’s end time prophecy about the sun and moon. John’s sun and moon will be a new sun and moon, that will hang in space, but will not move, and will barely be visible, because of the brightness of Yehovah’s glory!
Yehovah promised a new creation in Isaiah 65:17, “For, behold, I create new heavens and new earth. And the former things shall not be recalled, and they shall not go up on the heart.” and in Isaiah 66:22, “For as the new heavens and the new earth which I make stand before Me, declares Yehovah, so your seed and your name shall stand.” Peter reiterated the promise in 2 Peter 3:13, “But according to His promise, we look for “New heavens and a new earth,” in which righteousness dwells.” John gave us the final promise prophecy in Revelation 21:1, “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and the sea no longer is.” At the end of the Millennial Reign of Yeshua HaMashiach, on or about Nisan 1, 7001, right after the Great White Throne Judgment, Yehovah will recreate the universe! Apparently, the new universe will be static, not moving, with no more violent explosions, etc. It’s pretty much impossible to know the physics of the new universe, but what we do know is that the present universe will come to an end. So, did Yehovah, in Genesis 1, set a timer for this current created universe? A 7,000 year countdown time clock? What makes me think this? Well, in Genesis 1:14, on day four of creation week, Yehovah lit up the sun, moon, and stars, as luminaries in the heavens, to give us light for 7,000 years! Those lights seem to be turned off in Isaiah 60:19-20! Peter saw the day the lights go out and the current calendar dies, 2 Peter 3:10-12, “But the day of Yehovah will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with rushing sound, and the elements shall separate as they burn, and earth and the works in it will be burned up. 11Now since all these being are about to be dissolved, what sort of person ought you to be in holy behavior and righteousness, 12looking for and longing for the coming of the Day of Yehovah, through which the heavens having been set afire will be dissolved; and burning, the elements will melt?” Then Peter repeats the Isaiah promise in verse 13, the new heavens and new earth, as we mentioned above.
So, what is important about this calendar change? Only the holy and righteous will survive Judgment Day to see the new heavens and new earth. Have you repented of your sin and turned to Yeshua for the salvation of your soul? Time is literally running out on us. You are only one heartbeat from meeting your Creator Judge face to face. He can take your breath away from you at any moment. NOW is the day of salvation. Soon, very soon, it will be too late to receive Yeshua into your life as your Savior and Lord. Do it right now.
