METONIC CYCLES AND THE 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL

THERE IS A 19 YEAR CYCLE WHICH FITS THE LUNAR CALENDAR VERY BEAUTIFULLY. IT WAS NOTED BY THE RENOWNED HEBREW RABBI AND SCHOLAR HILLEL 2 IN GREECE AROUND 360 B.C. EMBOLISMAL YEARS ARE THOSE YEARS IN THE LUNAR CALENDAR IN WHICH AN EXTRA 13TH MONTH, (ACTUALLY A SECOND MONTH OF ADAR), IS INSERTED INTO THE CALENDAR. THE EXTRA MONTH IS PLACED IN THE CALENDAR AS THE TIME OF THE SPRING EQUINOX APPROACHES. IN THE HEBREW RELIGIOUS CALENDAR THIS MARKS THE BEGINNING OF THE ECCLESIASTICAL YEAR. THE EXTRA OR 13TH MONTH IS INSERTED IN THE SPRINGTIME BEFORE THE MONTH OF THE EQUINOCTIAL MOON. BY DEFINITION, THE MOON WHICH COMES TO ITS FULLNESS AFTER THE SPRING EQUINOX MARKS THE MONTH OF NISAN. THIS IS CONSIDERED THE FIRST MOON OF THE RELIGIOUS YEAR. THIS SPRINGTIME EQUINOCTIAL MOON OF NISAN IS THE PASSOVER MOON. WHENEVER THE EXTRA EMBOLISMAL MONTH OF ADAR 2 IS ADDED INTO THE CALENDAR IT MAKES 13 MONTHS FOR THAT YEAR. IN THE 19 YEAR METONIC CYCLE THERE ARE 7 SUCH EMBOLISMAL YEARS. 7 EXTRA MONTHS ADDED TO THE 19 X 12 = 7 + 228 = 235 LUNAR CYCLES. THESE 235 MOONS FIT THE 19 SOLAR PASSAGES OR 19 SOLAR YEARS VERY VERY CLOSELY. THIS WAS WHAT WAS NOTICED BY HILLEL 2. HE DECIDED TO USE THIS AS A FRAMEWORK FOR THE HEBREW CALENDAR BECAUSE WHEN HE LOOKED AT THE RECORD OF PAST YEARS HE SAW THAT THE LUNAR CALENDAR ACTUALLY DID TRACE OUT THIS METATONIC CADENCE. THE EMMBOLISMAL EXTRA MONTHS, MONTH #13 FOR THAT YEAR, COME IN A CERTAIN PREDICTABLE 7 in 19 SEQUENCE. THESE EMBOLISMAL MONTHS ENABLE THE MOONS, (WHICH ARE "FALLING BEHIND" 11.24 DAYS IN 12 MONTHS), TO "KEEP UP" WITH THE SPRING EQUINOX THROUGH THE YEARS. THESE SECOND MONTHS OF ADAR ARE REPRESENTED BY THE 13th MOON. THE PATTERN IN WHICH THESE EMBOLISMAL (13TH) MOONS PRESENT THROUGH THE 19 YEARS ARE 0 SHOWN IN RED IN THE TABLE BELOW. THE EMBOLISMAL YEARS CAN ALSO BE APPRECIATED IN AUDIO AS EACH "OOMP" IN THE "OOMP, PA, PA" CADENCE SHOWN BELOW.

THE METONIC DANCE
SEVEN EXTRA EMBOLISMAL MONTHS OF ADAR, (ADAR 2), EVERY 19 YEARS. 19 SOLAR YEARS = 19 x 365.242199 = 6,939.602 days. A GREEK SCHOLAR IN ATHENS BACK IN THE 4th CENTURY B.C. NOTICED THAT THE PASSAGE OF 19 YEARS WAS EXCEEDINGLY CLOSE TO THE PASSAGE OF 235 MOONS. THE LUNAR CYCLE BACK THEN WAS 29.53025. SO 235 MOONS = 6,939.608 DAYS WHICH MATCHED THE TIMESPAN FOR 19 YEARS, (19 x 365.242199 = 6,939.602) VERY WELL. SINCE 19 YEARS OF 12 MONTHS = 228 MONTHS THEN 7 OF THOSE 235 MOONS WERE EXTRA OR EMBOLISMAL MONTHS. THESE WERE IN EFFECT A 13TH MONTH FOR THAT YEAR. THAT EXTRA MONTH NEEDED TO BE ADDED TO THE YEAR 7 TIMES IN 19 YEARS. WHEN THOSE EXTRA SEVEN MOONS ARE SPACED OUT OVER 19 YEARS WE GET THE CADENCE GIVEN UP ABOVE. THIS PREDICTS HOW THE MOON WILL COME THROUGH EACH SPRING AND WHETHER AN EXTRA MONTH OF ADAR WILL BE CALLED FOR TO MOVE THE LAGGING MONTH OF NISAN UP 29.5 DAYS INTO THE SPRING EQUINOX REGION. THOSE EMBOLISMAL YEARS, (ABOUT 1 IN 3), WILL SEE A LATE PASSOVER FOR THAT YEAR. THE METONIC CYCLE WAS INCORPORATED INTO THE HEBREW CALENDAR. THE EXTRA MONTH OF ADAR IS INSERTED AFTER PASSAGES OF 3, 3, 3, 2, 3, 3, AND 2 YEARS. IF YOU COUNT OUT THE 19 YEARS OF THE CYCLE THE EMBOLISMAL YEAR WILL COME IN YEARS 3,6,9,11,14,17, and 19. THIS IS THE METONIC CYCLE AND IT WAS INCORPORATED INTO LUNAR CALENDARS TO GOOD EFFECT BEFORE THE ROMAN CALENDAR CAME ALONG. THE ROMAN CALENDAR IGNORED THE LUNAR CYCLES ENTIRELY. IT WAS 100% SOLAR, AS IS OUR GREGORIAN CALENDAR TODAY. BELOW WE SEE THE METONIC CYCLE AS IT PLAYS OUT IN THE COMING YEARS. THIS WILL ENABLE US TO COUNT THE MOONS IN THE TISHREI TO TISHREI TIMESPAN OVER SEVEN YEARS. DEPENDING ON THE PLACEMENT IN THE METONIC CYCLE THE TIMESPAN WILL EITHER BE 87 MOONS OR 86 MOONS. AS WE SHALL DISCOVER, THE TIMESPANS MARKING OUT 86 MOONS FIT THE TIMESPAN OF THE 70TH WEEK. THEY FIT IT PERFECTLY. IS THIS A COINCIDENCE? PROBABLY NOT.

THE NUMBER OF MOONS FROM TISHREI OF A GIVEN YEAR TO TISHREI 7 YEARS LATER VARIES. IT MAY BE 7 x 12 = 84 MOONS PLUS 2 EXTRA EMBOLISMAL ADAR 2 MOONS = 86 MOONS OR IT MAY BE 7 x 12 =84 PLUS 3 EXTRA EMBOLISMAL ADAR 2 MOONS = 87 MOONS. THOSE SEVEN YEAR SPANS CONTAINING 86 MOONS MATCH UP PERFECTLY THE TIMESPAN BETWEEN THE NEXT TWO FEASTS OF ISRAEL THAT ARE DUE FOR FULFILMENT. FROM TISHREI 1, (THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS), IN CERTAIN YEARS AND TERMINATING ON TISHREI 10, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT, DAY OF RECKONING, DAY OF JUDGEMENT SEVEN YEARS LATER THE TIME ELAPSED IS EXACTLY 2550 DAYS. THIS IS THE EXACT NUMBER OF DAYS, (1260 + 1290 DAYS), WHICH ENCOMPASSES THE 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL.

 

BELOW WE SEE HOW THE METONIC CYCLES ARE LAID OUT ACROSS SUCCESSIVE 7 YEAR SPANS OF YEARS. WE ALSO NOTICE THAT THESE TISHREI TO TISHREI TIMESPANS ARE EITHER 87 MOONS OR 86 MOONS. THOSE TIMESPANS OF 86 MOONS FIT THE 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL SO PERFECTLY THAT WE ARE BOUND TO CONCLUDE THAT THE NEXT TWO HEBREW FEASTS DUE TO COME UP FOR FULFILLMENT, NAMELY THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS AND THE DAY OF ATONEMENT ARE IN FACT THE VERY TWO FEASTS THAT MARK THE BEGINNING OF THE 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL AND THE END OF THE 1290 DAYS THE ANGEL GABRIEL SPOKE OF IN HIS MESSAGE TO DANIEL. (DAN.12:11) THE 1290 DAYS EXTEND OUT 30 DAYS BEYOND THE 1260 DAYS OF THE LATTER HALF OF THE 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL AND MAY BE A GRACE PERIOD IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON THAT WILL MARK THE CLIMAX OF THIS AGE. THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS AND THE DAY OF ATONEMENT ARE THE FIRST TWO OF THE THREE FALL FEASTS OF ISRAEL. THESE FEASTS, #'s 5, 6, & 7 HAVE YET TO BE FULFILLED IN THE NEW COVENANT. HOLY HISTORY HAS YET TO REVEAL THESE EPIC EVENTS US. THEY ARE OUT THERE IN FUTURE HISTORY. AND THESE UPCOMING TWO FALL FEASTS MARK OUT THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS OF THIS AGE WITH TOTAL AND ABSOLUTE PRECISION.
