5776:  A 2.5 Year Window

Many Christian teachers and scholars that are savvy to Biblical Numbers and Patterns, use the Hebrew Civic Calendar in their sermons, books and videos.  Although I have discovered many Bible Codes first-hand that reflect the Civic Calendar, I have come to realize that there are actually (4) Hebraic Calendars, all of which are used in Bible Code.

Hebrew Civic Calendar

This calendar is the standard calendar observed by both orthodox and secular Jews, that starts at Rosh Hashanah each year.  This is the calendar that most people refer to when they cite the current Hebraic Year.  It was created by rabbis, using mathematics and astrological alignments, to make their best guess as to when YHWH (God) had created Man.  This calendar is also referred to by some as the Hillel II.

Calendar Example:  August 21, 2017 = 29 Av, 5777


Hebrew Civic Calendar- Biblical New Year

This calendar also reflects the year rabbis assumed Man was created, but uses the Biblical New Year of Aviv (Abib), that took place before Passover.

The Aviv is the “head” of the year (see Strong’s #H7218).  Although the Gregorian Calendar is not a “biblical” calendar, the “New Year” of the Gregorian is a similar concept.  The name of the month of Aviv is directly tied to the ripening of grain (barley, not corn), and was to be the first month of the year.

The Aviv starts when we can see the first sliver of light after the New Moon (or No Moon), around the time of the vernal equinox of Spring.  Aviv changes from year-to-year on the Gregorian Calendar, and is roughly (7) months before the cultural new year of Rosh Hashanah.  The Aviv of 2018 would begin the year of 5778 in this model.

Calendar Example:  August 21, 2017=   the 28th day of the 5th month of 5777


Scriptural references of the Biblical New Year

Exodus 12:2 This month [shall be] unto you the beginning of months: it [shall be] the first month of the year to you.

Deut. 16:1 Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto the LORD thy God: for in the month of Abib the LORD thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night. Thou shalt therefore sacrifice the passover unto the LORD thy God,of the flock and the herd, in the place which the LORD shall choose to place his name there.

The “beginning” (ro’sh: head) of months was given to Israel at the time of Passover to be the “first” (ri’shone: first) month of the year.  Biblicaly, we are to “observe” (shaw’mar: preserve) the month of Abib (aw’beeb), as Deuteronomy states.  The scriptures go on to mention the Feast of Unleavened Bread, that also takes place in the first month.  (Click on the highlighted words above, to see Strong’s definitions.)


Creation Calendar- Rosh Hashanah New Year

This calendar honors the cultural new year of Rosh Hashanah.  Although the Hebrew Civic Calendar is the standard in Israel, many Jewish rabbis will openly admit that the Creation Calendar is also an acceptable way of viewing the calendar.  The most notable rabbi being Matityahu Glazerson. *

This calendar is almost the same as the Hebrew Civic Calendar, but instead of measuring from when Man was assumed to be created, the year is rolled back for the “guesstimated” creation of the World.

Calendar Example:  August 21, 2017=  29 Av, 5776

Creation Calendar- Aviv New Year

Like the other Creation Calendar, this too is measured out from when the rabbis assumed the World was created, but starts at the Biblical New Year of Aviv.  In this model, 5776 will not end until Aviv 2018.

Calendar Example:  August 21, 2017=  28th day of the 5th month, 5776



Please note:  None of these calendars reflect the true date of when the world or man were created.  Most rabbis will confess that the cultural Civic Calendar, is most likely 200-240 years off.  This would place us much farther along on the “6 Day Plan” calendar, modeled after the bible verses that compare a day to a thousand years for the Lord.

Scriptural References for the “6 Day Plan” calendar

The Father works in patterns.  He is an Elohiym (God) of order. This is evident throughout the entire Bible.  He created the world in (6) days.  On the (6)th day, He created man.  Man will have dominion over the Earth for (6) thousand years.

The Timeline:  A Day is A Thousand Years

Psalm 90:4  For a thousand years in thy sight [are but] as yesterday when it is past, and [as] a watch in the night.

2 Peter 3:8  But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day [is] with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.  (scriptural context:  The timing of the Judgment of Yeshua (Jesus) in the Last Days)

6 (number of man) x 1000 = 6,000 Years (before the Millennial Reign of Yeshua)

7th Millenium, is the 1000 year Reign of Yeshua.  

4  And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and [I saw] the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received [his] mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5  But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This [is] the first resurrection. 6  Blessed and holy [is] he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

I will not be going into great detail in this post– cataloging all of the scriptures that support this 6000 year concept.  I will however give you one more thing to chew on.


600 years old when he entered the Ark. (Gen. 7:6)
10th Generation of Man on the Earth.  (Gen. Chapters 4 & 5)

600 x 10 = 6,000


Knowing that, makes this scripture far more meaningful:

Berean Literal Bible
Matthew 24:37-  For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.

Not only does it reference the moral decay of the world in the “last days”, and suggest a Nephilim presence, it is also a direct reference to the prophetic timeline of YHWH (God), and the return of Yeshua (Jesus Christ) our Messiah at the end of 6000 years.


When Yeshua returns for His Millennial Reign, all calendars will be reconciled.
