GOD’S SALVATION CALENDAR
GOD’S CALENDAR DESIGNED BEFORE CREATION
God designed the Plan of Salvation long before He created this world of ours. In fact He had not created a single angel by that time. It was only Himself and His only Begotten Son. They agreed on a well packaged program of dealing with sin when it finally rears its ugly head. They knew the Arch- angel (Lucifer) who they were about to create would plunge both heaven and this world of ours into untold turmoil through the introduction of sin. They had to seek for a solution well in advance (Revelation 13:8).
After they agreed on ‘what’ should be done, they also agreed on ‘when’ it should be done until the problem of sin is forever fixed never to rear its head again. Therefore, God the Father and His only begotten Son agreed on a well defined work-plan and strategy. They agreed on a timetable and a diary and set out all the timeframes necessary to forever annihilate the science of sin.
Then they came up with a way of packaging that Salvation Strategy in a manner that it would be clearly understood by all the other parties concerned including the yet-to-be created angels but most importantly, the beneficiaries of that program who in this case happen to be the entire sinful humanity since the days of Adam. As a means of communication, God designed the symbolism of the Sanctuary so that they could later use it as a teaching aid to teach and explain the finer details of the Plan of Salvation.
In His wisdom, God designed several sanctuary events and services which typified and symbolized all the aspects of the Plan of Salvation. Every sanctuary event and service had special dates appointed and anointed for its celebration and/or observance. No one had the powers to change those appointed times. Every event had to be celebrated at the decreed and appointed date and time. There is no way for instance that the morning sacrifice could be made at noon under any circumstances whatsoever. It had to be at the exact decreed time.
The times appointed for the celebration of all sanctuary events and services are also symbolic and they point to the exact time when the real events (antitypes) which are typified by those events will be fulfilled. Therefore, each of the times appointed for the celebration of various sanctuary services symbolizes and points to one of the dates when God will fulfill certain matters (antitypes) to do with our salvation.
SYMBOLISM IN THE DATES
Most of us only consider the symbolism of the sanctuary events and services and we even write books about their meaning but we totally forget that the time when that event is celebrated tells us a lot about when the antitype of those events or services will take place. There is a very good reason as to why God insists on a particular dates for every service or event.
The greatest anxiety among Christians is about ‘when’ God will fulfill most of His promises as stipulated in the plan of salvation. The most common question among all Christians is “WHEN, WHEN, WHEN”? The answer to our “when” question is tightly hidden in the symbolism of the times appointed for the celebration of all the sanctuary events and services. Everything that God is supposed to accomplish in the Plan of Salvation is symbolized by one service or event in the sanctuary and so if you want to know when it will be fulfilled, then you must get clues from the date appointed for the celebration of the symbolic service in question.
For all those appointed times to be correctly reckoned, they had to be in total agreement with God’s personal calendar and clock. When God was appointing all those timelines, He was referring to His own clock and calendar. God was not referring to the Gregorian calendar that we use nowadays. In fact the Gregorian calendar is immensely antagonistic against God’s calendar and is purposely designed by the devil to defeat the noble purposes of God’s calendar.
It is therefore absolutely important for all the saints to be familiarized with all the facts and the operation of God’s calendar in order to perfectly understand the plan of salvation. As we all know, our God is so orderly that He allocates time for even what we consider to be the minutest details of life (Ecclesiastes 3). That is why He even says that every word and action must come before the judgment. According to God there are no accidents and coincidences but everything for Him is prepared and organized well in advance. He knows the end from the beginning. Acts 17:26 says “…and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live”. Nothing takes God by surprise.
It is the purpose of this book therefore to highlight all the facts concerning the operations of God’s original calendar. The purpose of any calendar anywhere is one and that is to reveal the dates and the dates alone. Now the million dollar question is which dates? Since this is God’s calendar in relation to our salvation, then automatically the calendar must be showing dates when all the aspects of the plan of salvation will be consummated. We therefore see that there is no way we can interpret the prophecies correctly without a thorough understanding of the operations of God’s calendar since all the timelines are quoted as per God’s calendar.
In His wisdom, God did not want all the dates of His calendar when some events would take place to be known until the correct or right time matures. He therefore deliberately and in a parabolic manner hid most of the details in the symbolism until the right time. It is for this reason that God’s clock and calendar is shrouded in a lot of mystery and even the Bible does not have it presented in plain black and white. It is a question of gathering the pieces together.
The Bible is quite clear ( Exodus 12:2) that when God addressed Moses and Aaron to give them details on how they were to leave Egypt, the first thing He mentioned to them was His calendar. This was God’s first statement “This month is to be for you the first month, the first month of your year”. God spoke as if He had just created the world. How could that be Israel’s first month yet they had spent around 400 years in Egypt as punishment? God was showing Israel that He was starting afresh with them and He was also saving them the burden of having to refer to old calendars with all the attendant problems associated with such an exercise. It was a new beginning. They were to start at number one. Later at Mt Sinai, God gave many other dimensions and details of His own calendar which this book addresses in detail (Leviticus
It is therefore almost impossible to draw a line between the sanctuary and God’s calendar. We cannot study one without overlapping into the other. I therefore invite you to one of the most interesting and controversial subjects in the entire Bible. It will never be the same again for you after reading this book.
Dan 7:25 & 8:12 gives us a stern warning that Satan was not only determined to change the set times but he actually succeeded. This book unveils Satan’s historic efforts and lies. We are told that failure to use God’s calendar in reckoning of all prophetic timelines is viewed by heaven as being equivalent to turning the Plan of Salvation upside down.
The Bible says by our ignorance of God’s calendar we declare God to be a liar. Our ignorance and abandonment of God’s calendar is like declaring that God’s promises are false (Jeremiah 33:20-26). We therefore have no choice but to learn about God’s calendar and apply it. I kindly seek your patience and prayers since this is one of the most difficult subjects in the study of the prophecies.
