The 8th Sacred Calendar Month: 15th October – 12th November 2012
The Jewish sacred calendar began in the month Abib, by divine instruction recorded in Ex 12:2 and Deut 16:1. Thereafter, the rest of the months of the year were determined from one new moon to another (Isa 66:23).
The entire sacred calendar is therefore a strictly lunar calendar. On the other hand, the Gregorian calendar is based on a solar year creating a disparity between the sacred and the Gregorian calendar because the lunar month occurs at a different timing from the solar month.
In 2012, reckoning by the Gregorian calendar, the first Jewish sacred calendar month Abib began on the day of the new moon 22nd March – 20th April; the second sacred calendar month called Zif also began from the day of the new moon 21st April – 19th May; the third sacred calendar month called Sivan began on the day of the new moon 20th May – 18th June; subsequent months followed the same pattern in which the day of the occurrence of the new moon marked the beginning of the Jewish sacred calendar month. Now, the eighth Jewish sacred calendar month called Bul (1 Kgs 6:38; 1kings 12:32-33) will begin on the day of the next new moon occuring on the 15th October – 12th November 2012.
The word October was derived from the Latin word “Octo” meaning eight (8). It was originally the 8th month of the old Roman calendar. It retained its name from the Latin origin when July and August, named after Julius and Augustus Caesar respectively, were inserted into the calendar created by the Romans.
It is now considered the tenth (10th) month in the now widely used Gregorian calendar.
Consequently, it is the gateway into THE LAST QUARTER OF THE Gregorian calendar YEAR when OCCULT FETISHISM AND BLOODSHED manifest in bizarre occurrences, road accidents, robbery, ritual murders, rape, etc. These are actually thanksgiving offerings offered to the occult “gods” for protection throughout the concluding year.
October is the eighth (8th) month of the Jewish sacred calendar and the second (2nd) month according to their civil calendar. (1 Kings 6:38; 1 Kings 12:32, 33).
The eighth month depicted “plumpness” as if a surplus above the perfect seven. Figuratively it symbolizes fatness, rich fat, lusty and plenteous. Thus this month is meant to be a time of abundance and plenty.
When God commanded Moses and Aaron to take the month of Abib as the beginning of months, the first month of the year (Exo 12:2; 13:4), He automatically set the spring season as the first season of the year. This is because “Abib” is a Hebrew word for fresh, young barley ears, or month of ear-forming, or month of greening of crop, etc moreover, it is the time when the rains begin after the long dry winter months; thus, the northern hemisphere sets precedence for the seasons of the year, following this Biblical pattern since Israel is located in it.
Most nations in the northern hemisphere experience rain during this time of the year when summer is drawing to a close and opening the gates into autumn the third major season of the year (spring – summer – autumn) while the southern hemisphere is ushered into the beginning of summer.
In autumn creation prepares for the coming winter season. Creatures like ants gather food in summer and autumn in preparation for winter. Other animals prepare to go into hibernation where they are hidden under the earth and are in rest and recuperation.
It is also a season for harvesting plants that mature during late summer and for preparing grounds for the next planting season. There is a drying up, dying and falling off of leaves and plants that had blossomed and borne fruit during the spring and summer months.
In this 2nd, 8th and 10th month seek for opportunities, in families where marriages are failing, to plant good deeds of praying for those marriages.Click Here to View as PDF
