INCOMING EMAIL, RE: MARCH 20, 2015 IS A DAY ABSOLUTELY MARKED BY GOD
Do you realize that God has coordinated all this meticulous positioning of the earth, sun, and moon on March 20, 2015 / Nisan 1, 2015 at the same time as the earth is speeding in its orbit around the sun at the rate of 66,000 miles per hour while spinning on its axis at the rate of 1,000 miles per hour ?
WHAT AWESOME POWER OUR GOD HAS !!!
MARCH 20, 2015 IS A DAY ABSOLUTELY 'MARKED' BY GOD
First God positioned the earth and the sun that day to be the Vernal Spring EQUINOX of equal hours of daylight and darkness.
Next God positioned the moon to come, exactly, between the earth and the sun to cause a total "sackcloth" ECLIPSE of the sun that day.
Then God positioned the moon to come out of the shadow of the earth to be the NEW MOON rising over Jerusalem that day.
That makes it the FIRST DAY of the FIRST MONTH on God's lunar calendar, Nisan 1, is NEW YEAR'S DAY of God's SACRED YEAR.
Two weeks later on the FULL MOON of Nisan 15, God positions the moon to cause a BLOOD-MOON ECLIPSE on Passover/Feast of Unleavened Bread.
Six months later on the FULL MOON of Tishri 15, God positions the moon to cause a BLOOD-MOON ECLIPSE on Feast of Tabernacles.
I believe that God has MARKED the day of March 20, 2015 to be the FIRST DAY of the FIRST MONTH, ie. Nisan 1, of His 49th Sacred Sabbatical Year which would make it the last year of the last set of 7 years of the current Jubilee cycle thus marking the coming NEW MOON of Nisan 1, 2016 the 50th JUBILEE YEAR, and DAY ONE OF THE 'DAY OF THE LORD' !
"I will show wonders in the heaven ABOVE........the SUN shall be turned into darkness, and the MOON into blood, BEFORE the coming and awesome DAY OF THE LORD."
Does "BEFORE" mean the YEAR BEFORE which would be the 49th Sabbatical Year of 2015 "BEFORE" the coming 50th Jubilee Year 2016 ? I believe it does ! God is fulfilling prophecy BEFORE OUR EYES for "those who have eyes to see"!
The NEW MOON of Nisan 1, 2016 RISES OVER JERUSALEM on the day of April 8, 2016 which is within the 49-year generation of the Fig Tree sprouting leaves when Jerusalem was returned to the possession of Israel BY GOD in June 1967. (1967 + 49 = 2016 )
Ten days later is Palm Sunday, Nisan 10, April 17, 2016 which I believe to be the DAY OF OUR RAPTURE.
MARK YOUR CALENDAR !!!

Amen to that. And he said in Joh_11:26, "And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?"
I believe it. The natural terrestrial body can die, but the spiritual celestial body does not die. It can walk through walls.
Ed came to see me April 2, 2012 in his celestial body. It seems as normal as the terrestrial body. His voice sounded normal. His clothes hung on him as if his body was solid. He was wearing black wingtip shoes, a black shirt and pants that had the sheen and flow around his shin like silk shirt material. I asked him if he was 30 or 33. He said, "33," so the celestial body does not get old like the terrestrial body. He was 87 when his terrestrial body died. When leaving, he walked through the wall.
1Co_15:40-44 says, "There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. 41 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. 42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: 43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: 44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body."
Eph_5:31 says, "For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh."
But Mt 22:30 says, "For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven."
I was confused. We are married, and I want to be with Ed forever, so when I asked him if we could be together forever, I was relieved when he said, "Yes."
What Hebrew Calendar do you use?
Hebcal says, "1st of Nisan, 5776 = Sat, 9 April 2016"
That will be the anniversary of the Resurrection on April 9 in 30 AD, a good time for the Second Advent.
"Thu, 2 April 2015 = 13th of Nisan, 5775"
That will be the anniversary of the Crucifixion on Thursday, Nisan 13 in 30 AD, the event that makes the Rapture possible. I hope the First-Trump Rapture happens on April 2.
"1st of Tishrei, 5776 = Mon, 14 September 2015"
Possibly the great and terrible Day of the Lord.
> > I believe that God has MARKED the day of March 20, 2015 to be the FIRST DAY of the FIRST MONTH, ie. Nisan 1, of His 49th Sacred Sabbatical Year which would make it the last year of the last set of 7 years of the current Jubilee cycle thus marking the coming NEW MOON of Nisan 1, 2016 the 50th JUBILEE YEAR, and DAY ONE OF THE 'DAY OF THE LORD' !
I think the Jubilee year will start Nisan 1, 5776, April 9, 2016. It follows the Sabbatical Year 5775, and seems to be the day of the Second Advent.
However, I don't think that is the Day of the Lord. I think Tishri 1, 5776 might be the great and terrible Day of the Lord, and Nisan 1, 5776 the day of the Second Advent.
Eze_39:12 says, "And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land."
In the year 5776, there are seven months between Tishri 1, Mon, 14 Sept. 2015, and Nisan 1, April 9, 2016. It is a leap year with the 13th month. It has an Adar II.
"1st of Adar II, 5776 = Fri, 11 March 2016"
THE DAY OF THE LORD IS THE DAY OF GOD'S WRATH
Isa_13:6 says, "Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty."
Isa_13:9 says, "Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it."
Isa_34:8 says, "For it is the day of the LORD'S vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion."
Jer_46:10 says, "For this is the day of the Lord GOD of hosts, a day of vengeance, that he may avenge him of his adversaries: and the sword shall devour, and it shall be satiate and made drunk with their blood: for the Lord GOD of hosts hath a sacrifice in the north country by the river Euphrates."
Joe_1:15 says, "Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come."
Joe_2:1 says, "Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand".
Joe_2:11 says, "And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?"
Joe_2:31 says, "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come."
Amo_5:18 says, "Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light."
Amo_5:20 says, "Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?"
Oba_1:15 says, "For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head."
Zep_1:7 says, "Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord GOD: for the day of the LORD is at hand: for the LORD hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests."
Zep_1:8 says, "And it shall come to pass in the day of the LORD'S sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king's children, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel."
Zep_1:14 says, "The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly."
Zep_1:18 says, "Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land."
Zep_2:2,3 says, "Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD'S anger come upon you. 3 Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD'S anger."
Zec_14:1 says, "Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee."
1Th_5:2 says, "For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. "
2Pe_3:10 says, "But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up."
Mal_4:5 says, "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD"
That would mean that the First-Trump Rapture would take place before that. I think Elijah will come at the time of the first Rapture.
Rev 10:11 says, "Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings."
Therefore, Rev. 11:1's "RISE" is the same as the "COME UP HITHER" of Rev. 4:1. That is the First-Trump Rapture of I Thess. 4:13-18.
Rev 11:1-3 says, "And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, RISE (i.e., in the First-Trump Rapture), and measure the temple of God (we are the temple of the Holy Spirit), and the altar, and them that worship therein. 2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. 3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses (i.e., Moses and Elijah), and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth."
Rev. 11:12's "COME UP HITHER" is the Last-Trump Rapture of I Cor. 15:51-54.
Rev 11:12,13 says, "And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, COME UP HITHER. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. 13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven."
The Great Tribulation will follow the first Rapture, but it will be shortened.
Mat_24:22 says, "And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened."
Mar_13:20 says, "And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days."
THE DAY BEFORE "THE DAY OF THE LORD" WILL BE A DARK DAY
Act_2:20 says, "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, BEFORE that great and notable DAY OF THE LORD come".
There will be a Partial Solar Eclipse on Sept. 13, the day BEFORE the Feast of Trumpets, Sept. 14, 2015.
Rev 6:12,13 says, "And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; 13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind."
Rev 6:17 says, "For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
No one. I think that will be the day Satan's asteroid Wormwood will strike Earth and obliterate Babylon near the Euphrates River. To picture this, Rev 8:5 says, "And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake."
Also, an asteroid as large as a mountain will impact the Mediterranean Sea, causing a tsunami. That is when Damascus will cease to be a city.
Rev 8:8,9 says, "And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; 9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed."
Jer_49:23 says, "Concerning Damascus. Hamath is confounded, and Arpad: for they have heard evil tidings: they are fainthearted; there is sorrow on the sea; it cannot be quiet."
Isa_17:1 says, "The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap."
Eze 38:18-23 says, "And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face. 19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; 20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence (paniym, face, i.e., they will see the Sign of the Son of Man in the sky), and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. 21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother. 22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. 23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD."
> > Acts 2:19-20
> > "I will show wonders in the heaven ABOVE........the SUN shall be turned into darkness, and the MOON into blood, BEFORE the coming and awesome DAY OF THE LORD."
> > Does "BEFORE" mean the YEAR BEFORE which would be the 49th Sabbatical Year of 2015 "BEFORE" the coming 50th Jubilee Year 2016 ? I believe it does ! God is fulfilling prophecy BEFORE OUR EYES for "those who have eyes to see"!
Act 2:19-21 says, "And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: 20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: 21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved."
I think it means that there will be a partial Solar Eclipse on Sept. 13, 2015, the day before the Feast of Trumpets, the DAY OF THE LORD.
> > The NEW MOON of Nisan 1, 2016 RISES OVER JERUSALEM on the day of April 8, 2016 which is within the 49-year generation of the Fig Tree sprouting leaves when Jerusalem was returned to the possession of Israel BY GOD in June 1967. (1967 + 49 = 2016 )
> > Ten days later is Palm Sunday, Nisan 10, April 17, 2016 which I believe to be the DAY OF OUR RAPTURE.
Do you mean Palm Sunday in 2015 instead of 2016? According to Mt. 1:17 a generation is 48.33 years. Twice, you said, "MARCH 20, 2015 IS A DAY ABSOLUTELY MARKED BY GOD."
I think the Last-Trump Rapture will probably take place on the Day of God's Wrath, Tishri 1, 5776, Sept. 14, 2015.
Rev 7:14,15 says, "And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple".
Therefore, it seems that the First-Trump Rapture has to take place before Tishri 1, 5776, Sept. 14, 2015. Would the anniversary of the Crucifixion on Nisan 13 do?
"13th of Nisan, 5775 = Thu, 2 April 2015"
That just might fill the bill. Maybe that is why Ed came to see me on April 2. I sure hope so. I never thought we would be here this long. We seem to be running out of time, and to wait for another Jubilee year is unthinkable.
The Crucifixion was on Thursday, Nisan 13 in 30 AD. That is the day that made our trip to Heaven possible. Jesus took the Old Testament saints to Heaven after his resurrection on Sunday, Nisan 16 in 30 AD, the Feast of Firstfruits.
Joh_20:17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God."
Eph 4:8-10 says, "Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. 9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? 10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)"
Without the Crucifixion, all the Old Testament saints were lost.
Psa_14:3 says, "They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one."
April 2, 2012, the day Ed came to see me, plus 1260 days equals the Feast of Trumpets, Sept. 14, 2015.
Time and Date
says, "From Monday, April 2, 2012
Added 1260 days
Result: Monday, September 14, 2015"
Maybe that will be the day Jesus will be given his Millennial Kingdom. It may be the day he will be seated as judge at the Judgment Seat of Christ. If so, there will be silence on Earth and in Heaven as the judge is being seated.
Hab_2:20 says, "But the LORD is in his holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before him."
Rev 8:1-5 says, "And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. 2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. 3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. 4 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand. 5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake."
This way, the seven trumpets would sound on the Feast of Trumpets. That is fitting.
Rev 8:10,11 says, "And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star (Gr. aster) from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; 11 And the name of the star (aster) is called Wormwood (i.e., meaning bitter): and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter."
Isa 22:5 For it is a day of trouble, and of treading down, and of perplexity by the Lord GOD of hosts in the valley of vision, breaking down the walls, and of crying to the mountains."
Isa 22:16-19 says, "What hast thou here? (i.e., Babylon) and whom hast thou here (the Satan-possessed False Prophet), that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here, as he (Satan) that heweth him out a sepulchre on high, and that graveth an habitation for himself in a rock? 17 Behold, the LORD will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee. 18 He will surely violently turn and toss thee like a ball into a large country: there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord's house. 19 And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down."
Rev 11:17-19 says, "We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come (probably on the following Nisan 1); because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. 18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. 19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail."
Both Raptures have to take place before the rewards are given to the saints.
AT THIS TIME, THE FIRST GROUP IS ALREADY IN HEAVEN, THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE HAS ALREADY TAKEN PLACE
Mat 24:31 says, "And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of HEAVEN to the other."
WHILE THE FIRST-RAPTURE GROUP IS BEING GATHERED IN HEAVEN, THE SECOND-RAPTURE GROUP IS CAUGHT UP FROM EARTH
Mar 13:24-27 says, "But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, 25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. 26 And then (tote, at that time) shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory (i.e., they will see the Sign of the Son of Man in the sky). 27 And then (tote, at that time) shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the EARTH to the uttermost part of HEAVEN."
The rewards will be given to all the saints in Heaven at the same time that the asteroid Wormwood is destroying on Earth.
The coming Jubilee Year will be announced on the following Day of Atonement. By the Feast of Tabernacles, those left alive on Earth will sure need to build booths for "every wall shall fall" (Eze. 38:20).
Then the Jubilee would start on Nisan 1, 5776, Sat. April 9, 2016. Agape
HIS REPLY, RE: YOU NEED TO MAKE A 'LUNAR' CALENDAR FOR THE COMING 'PROPHETIC YEAR'
God does NOT use the calendar you use. He uses His own 'Sacred lunar calendar' to FULFILL PROPHECY according to :
"...in respect of an HOLY DAY, or of A NEW MOON, or of the SABBATH DAYS, which are a SHADOW OF THINGS TO COME but the BODY IS OF CHRIST."
God positioned the sun to establish the FOUR SEASONS on earth. The Spring (March 20) and Fall (Sept 21) Equinoxes mark the first day of Spring and Fall. The Summer (June 20 ) and Winter (Dec 21 ) Solstices mark the first day of Summer and Winter.
He then declared the NEW MOON over Jerusalem to mark the FIRST DAY of each MONTH on His Sacred lunar calendar.
Then He declared the FIRST NEW MOON to appear over Jerusalem 'ON OR AFTER the SPRING EQUINOX' to be the FIRST DAY of the FIRST MONTH on His SACRED LUNAR CALENDAR to be the MONTH OF NISAN according to:
"This month shall be unto you the beginning of months; it shall be the FIRST MONTH of the year to you."
"In the FIRST MONTH, that is the month of Nisan, ........and from month to month, to the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar."
THE 'NEW MOON' CHART SHOWING: The Gregorian calendar date of the 'New Moon' rising over Jerusalem @ Jerusalem time:
March 20, 2015 11:36 AM = Nisan 1, 2015 = first day of the first month = New Years Day God's Sacred Year = Spring Equinox = Solar Eclipse = 49th Sabbatical Year begins exactly one year before the 50th Jubilee Year begins Nisan 1, 2016

Hebrew days start at 6 PM on the preceding date and last 24 hours.
I can’t go by a listed sighting of the new crescent moon at 2:24 PM. It is daylight at 2:24 PM. It would be unusual if you could see the slim new crescent moon in daylight. Usually, one cannot see it except between 15 and 45 minutes after sundown.
In olden days, Tishri 1 was set by when the crescent moon was seen within 45 minutes after sundown. Then whichever of their 6 calendars fit was applied to the rest of the year.
The best calendar program I have seen for dates back in 30 AD is the Torah Calendar: http://www.torahcalendar.com/Calendar.asp?YM=Y2016M2
If you go there, you will see that Rosh Chodesh, First Crescent Moon will be sunset 8 April. That New Year will be Sat. April 9, 2016, Julian Day 2,191,672. That is the day I am going by.
However, if I was to go by the new moon for each month, I could still only go by when the first crescent moon was seen within about 15 to 45 minutes after sunset.
If you want to go by the new crescent moon each month, which was done until the dispersion, there is a chart of New Moon Dates at: http://www.hope-of-israel.org/YHVHcal.htm. It also has April 9, 2016 for Nisan 1.
April 9 seems correct to me for the first day of the Jubilee Year, Nisan 1, 5776, for another reason. It sounds right because that is the anniversary of the Resurrection on April 9 in 30 AD, a perfect time for the Second Advent. That sounds like something the Lord would do.
The Crucifixion was on the preparation of the Passover, i.e., Thursday, Nisan 13, 3790 (Hebrew), April 6, 30 AD (Julian).
The Resurrection was on Firstfruits, Sunday, Nisan 16, 3790, April 9, 30 AD.
If you want to do some research, I can save you some time. Seyffarth, Thurman, Aldrich and Westcott picked a Thursday date. Africanus, Bengel, Cresswell and Rusk thought it was on Thursday, April 6, 30 AD. I agree with them.
Joh_13:1 says, "Now BEFORE (i.e., on Nisan 13) the feast of the PASSOVER (Nisan 14), when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end."
Joh_18:28 says, "Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the PASSOVER" (i.e., on the next day, Nisan 14).
John 19:14 says, "And IT WAS THE PREPARATION OF THE PASSOVER, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!"
Joh 19:30,31 says, “When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. 31 The Jews therefore, because IT WAS THE PREPARATION, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day, [i.e., Passover, an annual Sabbath]) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.
Here are my dates for Crucifixion Week:
Palm Sunday, 1st day of the week, Nisan 9, 3790 (Hebrew), April 2, 30 AD (Julian)
Monday, 2nd day of the week, Nisan 10, 3790 (Hebrew), April 3, 30 AD (Julian)
Tuesday, 3rd day of the week, Nisan 11, 3790 (Hebrew), April 4, 30 AD (Julian)
Wednesday, 4th day of the week, Nisan 12, 3790 (Hebrew), April 5, 30 AD (Julian)

MY REPLY TO AN INCOMING EMAIL
Here are my conclusions.
Jesus was conceived Kislev 24, Mon. Dec. 6, 6 BC (Julian).
He was born 273 days later, on Tishri 1, Feast of Trumpets, Mon. Sept. 4, 5 BC, Julian Day 1454028.
Keep in mind that Jesus is the foundation of the LORD'S temple.
"For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ." (1Co_3:11).
Jesus is also the seed of the woman.
Gen 3:15 says, "And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel."
"Is the seed yet in the barn?" is a saying that means "Is she pregnant."
Hag 2:18,19 (KJV) says, "Consider (sum lebab, take it to heart) now from this day and upward (maal, forward, upward), from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month (i.e., Kislev 24), even from the day that the foundation (i.e., Jesus) of the LORD'S temple was laid, consider it. 19 Is the seed (zera, child, seed, i.e., Jesus) yet in the barn? yea (YES), as yet the vine (Jesus), and the fig tree (Israel), and the pomegranate (meaning the upright), and the olive tree (Israel with us grafted in), hath not brought forth (NASA, LIFTED UP): from this day will I bless you."
THE BIRTH SIGN, VIRGO CLOTHED WITH THE SUN AND THE MOON AT HER FEET
Rev 12:1,2,5 says, "And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman (Virgo) clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: 2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered (tikto, to produce from seed, as a mother, to be in travail, be delivered, to bring forth) ... 5 And she brought forth (tikto) a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up (harpazo, taken up by force as in the Rapture) unto God, and to his throne."
In "YourSky," the Moon was under Virgo's feet on Tishri 1, September 4, 5 BC.
