The Calendar Heresies

This document, and those that follow, look at the various calendar heresies. The outline topics are listed and will be accompanied by the relevant detail as we progress dealing with each paper and issue it in a topic synopsis format. That work will then form a chapter in the forthcoming work on God’s Calendar.

Each of you is asked to consider the matter and you are all welcome to advise us of any additional detail that you think is important to this work.

There are various heresies that have grown up around the ancient calendar that were carried on into this era by Noah and that which was kept by the nations uniformly up until the Babel dispersion. This calendar of Noah formed the basis of the ancient Temple Calendar. Calendar heresies are not new and they have permeated every society with the intent of disrupting the true ancient Calendar, which was based on the New Moons according to the conjunction.

At one time, every nation on this planet, including and especially the patriarchs and early Israel and Ishmaelite tribes, kept the true Calendar based on the New Moon conjunction. It is a matter of historical record ignored by most Jewish, and Judaising religious sects, that the Calendar of the Patriarchs was calculated according to the conjunction. We know this from a multiplicity of sources, including ancient Jewish ethnic groups or clans dispersed from the Babylonian captivity and down to the first century Jewish records.

One of the most wilful and blatant heresies is found not only in Judaism and its postponement systems, but also in Islam and its adoption of the pagan crescent moon system. Not only is it openly acknowledged by Turkish Islam, from whose area the heresy was introduced in the middle of the second Millennium of the current era, but also it is an open historical record of Islam. The purpose of the error was division for political power. The result is division, hatred and destruction based on this irreconcilable error.

There is a text called the Vikramaditya inscription which was named after an enlightened noble in ancient times, who re-educated the Arabs who had lapsed into ignorance. It was found inscribed on a gold dish hung inside the Kaaba shrine in Mecca. The text is found recorded on page 315 of a volume known as “Sayar-ul-Okul”, which has been stored in the Makhtab-e-Sultania library in Istanbul, Turkey. Rendered in free English the inscription says:
"Fortunate are those who were born (and lived) during king Vikram’s reign. He was a noble, generous dutiful ruler, devoted to the welfare of his subjects. But at that time we Arabs, oblivious of God, were lost in sensual pleasures. Plotting and torture were rampant. The darkness of ignorance had enveloped our country. Like the lamb struggling for her life in the cruel paws of a wolf we Arabs were caught up in ignorance. The entire country was enveloped in a darkness so intense as on a new moon night. But the present dawn and pleasant sunshine of education is the result of the favour of the noble king Vikramaditya whose benevolent supervision did not lose sight of us- foreigners as we were. He spread his sacred religion amongst us and sent scholars whose brilliance shone like that of the sun from his country to ours. These scholars and preceptors through whose benevolence we were once again made cognisant of the presence of God, introduced to His sacred existence and put on the road of Truth, had come to our country to preach their religion and impart education at king Vikramaditya’s behest.”

This text, which is known to Islam, shows that the Crescent Moon was not used in ancient Arabia to determine the New Moon. The New Moon is recorded here as being the dark New Moon night which can only be that of the conjunction.

We know without doubt also that the Chinese carried the New Moons with them into the bend of the Yellow River when they went there from the West. They still keep the New Moon conjunction of Choy Yat as a sacred festival to this day. They have misconstrued the New Year from progressive error over the ages. We will explain that and the Islamic errors in the relevant sections of this chapter.

We are trying at present to assist research into the recording and production of the ancient calendar of the Lemba tribe of Zimbabwe. They are a sub-tribe of Jews who were cut off from Judah at the Babylonian captivity in 597 BCE. They remained in Southern Africa around the Limpopo River and took black wives. They retained their racial identity however, and they YDNA test clearly as Jews with their priest clan of the Buba, being all confirmed Cohenate Levites who are directly descended from Aaron, the bother of Moses and High Priest in Israel. From our conversations with Dr. Magdel Le Roux of the University of South Africa this tribe has been observed and recorded as determining the New Moon from the conjunction, which they calculate by an ancient method that determines the conjunction up to three days in advance. This confirms the timings they know by other advance calculations, of the fifty-nine day bi-monthly system. They do not agree with or follow the more recent Hillel Calendar of Judaism and reject it in favour of the more ancient conjunction system, which they still use. This may well be the simple method used by David before the Temple was built at Jerusalem.

We know that the conjunction was also in use at the time of Christ from the historical records of the contemporary Jews such as Philo at Alexandria.

God is not the author of confusion. His Calendar is clear and precisely determined. His Calendar determines the operation of the planet and the heavens record with great precision His system.

and God said you shall have no other Gods before me..
