Questions about 'Nisan 10th' verses 'Pentecost'

 

Que. Why did Israel become a nation on Pentecost?

Ans. Israel became a nation on Pentecost to fulfill the prophecies suggested in Ezekiel 36-37. (Also see Ezekiel 16.) Ezekiel refers to "an everlasting covenant," and both the old and new covenants came about on Pentecost, (1446 BC and AD 30). (Note: the 1967 War that saw the rest of Jerusalem, and temple mount, fall into Israel's hands also began on Pentecost. See earlier note.)

Eze 36:24 And I will take you from among the nations, and gather you out of all the countries, and will bring you into your own land.

Eze 36:25 And I will sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your uncleannesses and from all your idols will I cleanse you.

Eze 36:26 And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.

Eze 36:27-28 And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and keep mine ordinances, and ye shall do them. And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers, and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.

Eze 37:26-27 And I will make a covenant of peace with them: it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for ever. And my tabernacle shall be over them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. (Also see Ezek. 34:25.)

 

 

The New Covenant was fulfilled when the Holy Spirit was poured out at Pentecost, 50 days after Jesus died. At that time there was "a sound like mighty rushing wind." Compare that wind with the prophecies of Ezekiel. (The word for "Spirit" and "Wind" is the same in Hebrew.)

Eze 37:9 And he said unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.

Eze 37:14 And I will put my Spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I will place you in your own land: and ye shall know that I Jehovah have spoken, and have done it , saith Jehovah.

Ezekiel speaks about "a covenant of peace," and this is likely another covenant that results from the new covenant inaugurated at Pentecost as established 50 days earlier at Passover at the death of Christ. The "covenant of peace" and the "new covenant" are related to each other as can be seen in this verse: 

Ezekiel 36:26 And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.

Compare this verse with Jeremiah's prophecy:

Jer 31:31 Behold, days come, saith Jehovah, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:

Jer 31:32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers, in the day of my taking them by the hand, to lead them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they broke, although I was a husband unto them, saith Jehovah.

Jer 31:33 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel, after those days, saith Jehovah: I will put my law in their inward parts, and will write it in their heart; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Therefore we conclude that it is highly significant that Israel became a nation on Pentecost, the anniversary of both the old and new covenants, since these covenants are the theme of the previous chapters that flows into the text of Ezekiel 40 where Ezekiel measures the city and temple; and as said, from Ezekiel 40 unto Pentecost 1948 are exactly 1260 years times-two. (See also Ezekiel 44:7.) The measuring of the temple and the city in Ezekiel 40 are graciously revealed by God as both a fulfillment of the promises made by Him in the first covenant (on Pentecost 1446 BC) and by virtue of the coming results of the new covenant (also inaugurated on Pentecost AD 30). This is true also of Pentecost 1948, when Israel became a nation. God fulfilled his covenant to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (ratified at Sinai) by restoring Israel as a nation in 1948, however He showed this mercy on the basis of the New Covenant in that He only made the original promises to Abraham in the first covenant on the basis that God foreknew that there would indeed be another covenant built upon better promises. Thus it is very significant that Israel became a nation on Pentecost, the anniversary of both the old and new covenants, since these covenants are the theme of the previous chapters that flows into the text of Ezekiel 40 where Ezekiel measures the city and temple.

 

Que. Why did Israel become a nation on Pentecost on the 360 calendar rather than the Jewish calendar? (Note, the 1967 War that saw the rest of Jerusalem, and temple mount, fall into Israel's hands also began on Pentecost. See earlier note.)

Ans. Firstly, I have already explained that both calendars can be Pentecost on May 15, 1948 anyway. However, 1260 years times-two represents the same in days as per the prophecies of Daniel 9, Daniel 12, and Rev. 12-13. The time span of 1260-times-two days equal a seven-year period on the 360 calendar, (i.e., 360 days times 7 {years} = 1260 plus 1260 days). Thus, to use the 360 calendar rather than the regular Jewish calendar is consistent with itself. For we have 'seven years' of years (as derived from the 360 calendar) from Ezekiel 40 unto 1948, 'Pentecost,' (which is also derived from the 360 calendar). The 360 calendar is consistently used.

Rev 11:1 I was then given a stick that looked like a measuring-rod, and was told, "Go and measure the temple of God and the altar, and count those who are worshiping in the temple.

Rev 11:2 But do not measure the outer courts, because they have been given to the heathen, who will trample on the Holy City for forty-two months. 

Rev 11:3 I will send my two witnesses dressed in sackcloth, and they will proclaim God's message during those 1260 days." ("42 months" is 1260 days on 360 calendar; i.e., 42 x 30 days-in-a-month equals 1260 days, which is half-a-seven year period of 1260-times-two  days.)

 

===============

Rev 12:4 With his tail he dragged a third of the stars out of the sky and threw them down to the earth. He stood in front of the woman, in order to eat her child as soon as it was born.

Rev 12:5 Then she gave birth to a son, who will rule over all nations with an iron rod. But the child was snatched away and taken to God and his throne.

Rev 12:6 The woman fled to the desert, to a place God had prepared for her, where she will be taken care of for 1260 days.

 

Que. Why is there not an exact 1260 plus 1260  years between the prophecy of Ezekiel 40 to when Israel becoming a nation to the very day? Why instead is the period from 573 BC Nisan 10 un to 1948 Pentecost? Should not Israel have become a nation on Nisan 10 as well to make an exact 1260 plus 1260 years?

Blood-Moon Lunar Tetrads
and the Menorah of Time

These unique Passover-Tabernacles tetrads first began around Noah's Flood. They also occurred on the exact day when Israel entered Egypt -- also Jacob's death (and his prophecy about our future), and then Saul, David, Solomon, Hanukkah, the discovery of America, Israel becomes a nation, 1967-Jerusalem war, and now!

 Abraham was born 1948 years after Adam,  

and Israel was born as a nation in AD 1948. Is this a coincidence?
