What is wrong with the calendar?

So I sit and think about what His word shows me. One thing which used to trouble me was the difference between the calendars.
Yes. Many are aware of the difference between the calendar in the scriptures which goes from one new moon to another new moon and the calendar we use today which goes from one international date line to another international date line.
But that is not what I mean. Have you considered the lengths of these calendars?
The Gregorian (solar) calendar is 365 days long.
The Enoch (solar) calendar is 364 days long.
The lunar calendar is 354 days long.
The luni-solar calendar varies with some years being 384 days long and other years being 354 days long.
But not one of these calendars matches exactly what we see in His word. In His word we see the calendar being exactly 360 days long. Exactly.
So what is wrong? Did we do something to change it? Well, not us exactly, but our ancestors did according to scripture…. What do I mean exactly?
Looking at scripture we see in Genesis 7:11-12 and 24 that the length of a year was exactly 360 days. Look:
Genesis 7:11-12, 24
11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, on the seventeenth day of the second month, on that same day all the fountains of the great deep burst open, and the windows and floodgates of the heavens were opened.

12 It rained on the earth for forty days and forty nights.….
24 The waters covered [all of] the earth for a hundred and fifty days.
Genesis 8:4
4 On the seventeenth day of the seventh month, the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat.
So from the seventeenth day of the second month to the seventeenth day of the seventh month there were one hundred and fifty days. The number of months equals 7 – 2 = 5 months. 150 days divided by 5 months = 30 days each month.
We also see in Revelation 12 kinds of fruit, and this fruit is yielded once each month.
Revelation 22:22
22 On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
So what has happened that we no longer have His calendar as He gave it to us … as in the days of Noah?

He tells us the following in His word, and many people use this to say: “See – we should not follow His appointed times”. But rather they are looking at it from the wrong viewpoint.

In Hosea 2:1-13 we read of how Yahuwah says that Israel Is no longer His wife and He is no longer her husband. It tells us that this is the result of her playing the harlot with others (that is other gods).

And so we read in verse 11 how He removes their appointed times. (Make sure you read that whole section – verse 1 – 13, as the picture it paints is amazing.)

Hosea 2:11
11 “I will also put an end to all her rejoicing,
Her feasts, her New Moons, her Sabbaths,
All her appointed times.
We see the same thing in Lamentations 2:6
Lamentations 2:6
6 And He has violently broken down His temple like a [fragile] garden hedge;
He has destroyed His appointed meeting place.

Yahuwah has caused the appointed times and the Sabbaths
To be forgotten in Zion
And has despised and rejected the king and the priest
In the indignation of His anger.
In both Hosea and Lamentations, we read about how YisraEl rejected Yahuwah. We learn that Yahuwah made them forget His appointed times. He no longer allowed YisraEl to desecrate these times with their other lovers (gods). But how did He make them forget?
The answer to that question can be found in His word.
2 Kings 20:8-10
8 Hezekiah said to Isaiah, “What will be the sign that Yahuwah will [completely] heal me, and that I shall go up to the house of Yahuwah on the third day?”

9 Isaiah said, “This will be the sign to you from Yahuwah, that He will do the thing that He has spoken: shall the shadow [indicating the time of day] go forward ten steps, or go backward ten steps?”
10 Hezekiah answered, “It is easy for the shadow to go forward ten steps; no, but let the shadow turn backward ten steps.”
11 So Isaiah the prophet called out to Yahuwah, and He brought the shadow on the steps ten steps backward by which it had gone down on the sundial of Ahaz.
And again in Isaiah 38
Isaiah 38:4-8
4 Then the word of Yahuwah came to Isaiah, saying,
5 “Go and say to Hezekiah, ‘For Yahuwah, the Elohim of Dawid your father says this, “I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; listen carefully, I will add fifteen years to your life.
6 I will rescue you and this city from the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend this city [Yahrusalem].”
7 “This shall be the sign to you from Yahuwah, that Yahuwah will do this thing that He has spoken:
8 Listen carefully, I will turn the shadow on the stairway [denoting the time of day] ten steps backward, the shadow on the stairway (sundial) of Ahaz.” And the sunlight went ten steps backward on the stairway where it had [previously] gone down.
By turning the shadow backwards on the stairs ten steps, the length of the day was increased. We can even work out roughly how much this would have increased the day
In a full day, we have 24 hours with each hour having 60 minutes. But in the hours of daylight, we have half this amount ~ 12 hours.
1. 360 degree circle (on a sundial) divided by 12 hours of sunlight (average day)
= 30 degrees per hour.
2. 1/3rd of an hour (60 minutes) equals 20 minutes.
3. 1/3rd of 30 degrees is 10 degrees
4. 10 degrees would therefore equal 20 minutes
20 minutes extra in a day is who long in a 360 day year?
1. 20 minutes per day x 360 days = 7200 extra minutes per year.
2. 7200 extra minutes per year / 60 minutes in an hour = 120 hours per year.
3. 120 extra hours per year / 24 hours in a day = 5 days per year.
So it would appear that this is the reason we have so much trouble finding the exact day to worship upon. So why bother then?
Matthew 7 :7 says:
7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
If we seek the answers we shall find them. If we knock, the door shall be opened. Scripture reveals a time coming when these things shall be restored. They shall be restored by the restorers of the breach.
Isaiah 58:12
Those from among you
Shall build the old waste places;
You shall raise up the foundations of many generations;
And you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach,
The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In. 
It tells us that they shall restore His Sabbaths.
Isaiah 58:13-14
13 “If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath,

From doing your pleasure on My holy day,
And call the Sabbath a delight,
The holy day of Yahuwah honorable,
And shall honor Him, not doing your own ways,
Nor finding your own pleasure,
Nor speaking your own words,
14 Then you shall delight yourself in Yahuwah;
And I will cause you to ride on the high hills of the earth,And feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father.
The mouth of Yahuwah has spoken.”
It tells us from when these things shall take place: Isaiah 58:6-11 speaks of things which occur after the day of atonement Have a read of that scripture. The day of atonement was day we were to afflict our souls. Not by a physical fast or a day or mourning (Isaiah 58:5) but by afflicting our own souls by helping others! That was the type of affliction He meant.

We should be walking as He shows us. In Revelation 12 we see a woman. A pure woman. Shes uses the sun to see. She walks with the moon at her feet. She has a garland of 12 starts above her head. Why?

It is so she knows His appointed times. The sun provides the day. The moon marks where the days are counted from, and sets the appointed times. The garland of 12 stars marks the specific months .

Genesis 1:14
14 Then Elohim said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for appointed times, and for days and for years;
 
The woman who represents the people of Yahuwah.
Revelation 12:1-2
1 Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.

2 Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.
We see that woman fleeing to the wilderness where she has a place prepared by Yahuwah.
Revelation 12:6
6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by Yahuwah, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
The time period spoken of here is exactly three and a half scriptural years. For that to come to pass the calendar must be restored, such that His people will be able to walk as He walks and follow His direction.
Matthew 24:37
37 For the coming of the Son of Man (the Messiah) will be just like the days of Noah.
Luke 17:26
26 And just as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be in the time of [the second coming of] the Son of Man:

Yahuwah Bless.
