The first four days of August 2016 are in Tammuz, the 4th month of the Biblical Sacred Calendar and 10th month of the Biblical Civil Calendar. 5 August to 3 September 2016 will be in the month of Av. According to the Biblical Sacred Calendar this is the fifth (5th) month. It is the tenth (10th) month according to the Biblical civil calendar. It remains the eighth (8th) month of the Gregorian calendar. This month was named after Augustus Caesar, one of the emperors of the Roman Empire.
This month is a period of time termed “plumpness” In Gen. 17:12- the Hebrew meaning of ‘eight’ in this scripture is plumpness that represents ‘a surplus above the perfect seven’ meaning, that which is in excess, or over and above, or overflowing in every gate of society.
Figuratively, the eighth month symbolizes fatness, rich fat, lust and plenteous. Thus the eighth month is a time of salvation, restoration, fruitfulness, abundance and plenty (Luke 1:23-37, 66; Acts 9:33-34; 1Pe.3:20.) The month of August is a period of time characterized by the ripening of the fruit of the date palm and summer figs.Click Here to View as PDF
