    On what actual date do we change from the year 6000 to 6001?

    This is a good question because it seems everybody has their opinion as when the calendar begins and when is the Jubilee Year. We here at Cepher Publishing take the position that the Jubilee years are ending in "17" and "67". One can only speculate, but this could be 120th Jubilee upcoming which is the Year 6000.

    Maybe 6001 will start on Aviyv 1 of 2018. Which will be March 17th.

    Some say that the reunification of Jerusalem in 1967 began the last 50 year cycle, which would make 2017 a Jubilee year.
    And I found scripture that points to the tenth day of the seventh month as the day of celebration. Sounds good to me :)

    VAYIQRA (LEVITICUS) 25:8-10
    And you shall number to yourself seven Sabbaths of years, seven years times seven, and all the days of the seven Sabbaths of years shall be to you forty nine years. And you shall let a ram's horn resound, a signal in the seventh month, in the tenth of the month ; in the day of atonement, let a ram's horn pass throughout all your land; and you shall make the fiftieth year holy, one year. And you shall proclaim liberty in the land to those living in it; He shall be a jubilee to you. And you shall return every man to his possession; yea, you shall turn back each to his family.

    In retrospect the passages in Leviticus 25 might answer a question concerning when the Jubilee year would start, but I don't think the year count is done on that day, or on the first day of the first month of the spiritual year, as has been suggested. The year date change from what I now understand, happens on the first day of the two day celebration of Rosh Hashanah, the civil Head of the Year.

    Well, since no one else is posting (or maybe even knows that this forum is up now), I will continue my report on findings as I go.

    Correction to my last post; I have been advised that Sabbatical and Jubilee years are increased at the same time, on Tishri 1 (Rosh Hashanah). The actual application day of the Jubilee still being on Yom Kippur (I guess).

    In addition, the actual year count is made from on year before the creation date, as there is no zero year, leaving the first year designated as year one.

    We are currently in the Hebrew year 5777, from 3760 BCE (3761-1) plus 2017 CE. And will be changing to year 5778 on Rosh Hashanah, still in 2017 (from January 1st).

    Edit: corrected last 5778 from 5578 mistake

    So the Hebrew calendar says the year is 5777.

    The Jubilee count is at 120, or 6000 years.

    Why and how do we have a discrepancy of 223 years?

    And why dose the Cepher download calendar show the year change from,

    6000 to 6001 in Asiriy/Tevet, rather than Ethanim/Tishri?

    Our "Forums" page is somewhat new. If you know of any who would like join in these discussions (trolls not be allowed here), please tell them about this page. I have posted it on Facebook. I will take time to build a community people here.

    Are you talking about the year change on the Gregorian calendar?

    We take the position that the year begins on the 1st of Aviyv/Niycan (Nisan) and we believe the Scripture supports this:

    Shemoth (Exodus) 12:1-2
    AND YAHUAH spoke unto El-Mosheh and El-Aharon in the land of Mits?rayim, saying, 2 This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.

    Devariym (Deuteronomy)16:1
    GUARD ?? eth-the month of Aviyv, and keep the Pecach unto YAHUAH ELOHAYKA: for in the month of Aviyv YAHUAH ELOHAYKA brought you forth out of Mitsrayim by night.

    Tomas, really appreciate your input on this. This is why we created these forums so that people can voice what YAH has been teaching them in their studies.

    Shalom.

    I am referring to the calendar available for download via the Ministries tab on the Cepher web site.
    http://www.cepher.net/downloads.aspx

    What I see in the two passages quoted is that the assignment of beginning is to the month, and not the year. And that the purpose is to commemorate the events and the beginning of the relationship. In contrast the celebration of the head of the year (Rosh Hashanah) is the birthday of the universe, and to my understanding marks the beginning of everything, including years, and calendars.

    I really appreciate this forum being here.
    To all involved for their work in producing the eth Cepher, and this website, and forum, my very sincere Thanks!

    Currently I believe the Cepher download calendar has all of the months in order as prescribed, with Aviv/Nisan as the first of months.

    The Gregorian year change (2017 to 2018) on January 1st is also noted correctly.

    My contention is the Hebrew year change (6000 to 6001) shown seemingly accompanying Gregorian year change, should be in Ethanim/Tishri, supporting the first day of the Hebrew new year on Tishri 1.

    This date of all dates needs to be correctly marked, being of supreme importance concerning the final millennium.

    I hate it when I find what I think is an error in connection with the eth Cepher. That only means I have a lot of work to do that will eventually prove that I am wrong.

    Truly there is no biblical reference to support the Feast of Trumpets being referenced as "The Head of the Year", or to verify any specific counting method. It seems it all comes from tradition, and speculation. Hopefully a lesson well learned.

    Shalom

    Edit: spelled "Truly" correctly

    Thomas:

    Thanks for the great feedback. You have two separate instructions going. One declares the first month of the year to be Aviv. Shemot 12; Shemot 40;

    But, Shemot 23:16 declares that the Feast of Ingathering is the end of the year. Does this mean there is a gap between the end of the year and the first of the year?
