Annual Prophetic Calendar
This page provides an interactive tool for looking at the timing of the prophetic months within any given year. It also explains the theory involved and how this can be used prophetically.
There are 2 holiday seasons each year that are themselves a week long. These holidays are Unleavened Bread and Tabernacles. These holidays have important timed prophetic significance. The following form defaults to the current year, but you can change it to any other year. For each holiday day, the table below shows how those holidays matched prophetic months. Scroll down for discussion on the theory.
The calendar itself measures times at 3 different scales. We know this as years, months and days.
The text of the Bible itself explains how there are prophetic matches between these scales. 40 days of spying out the land became 40 years of wandering in the wilderness. These is is but 1 example at the national level.
The national level experience is built atop a personal experience that is seen each year.
Within any given year time is passing on 2 different scales. Individual days, and individual months.
When 2 different time lines, at 2 different scales, have the same time on both scales, we call this an 'inflection point.' By lining up those inflection points together we unlock the prophetic matches between those different scales.
In the annual holidays there are 2 inflections, each at the start of the holiday. At Unleavened Bread, at Sunset at the end of day 14, marked by the Passover meal at the end of day 14, there is an inflection.
That moment matches the same moment on the monthly calendar.
But the 2 timelines run at different paces. Every 1 day in the holiday week matches 1 month on the monthly calendar.
So across the usually 7 day long holidays, the 7 months from the current holiday month through and including the next holiday month are a prophetic match.
These matches are marked by opening and closing assemblies, as called out in the text and as marked in the table above.
So you can inspect the 4 rows marked as either Opening or Closing Assemblies. The prophetic month on the right hand side for Opening Assemblies includes the month of the holiday itself. The prophetic month on the right hand side for Closing Assemblies includes the month of the next holiday.
Note how the closing assembly for Tabernacles has a prophetic month in the following year that spans across the month of Unleavened Bread in that future year.
This forms a continuously running chain from holiday to holiday all the way across history.
The text is unclear as to the length of Tabernacles. It can either end on the 21st or 22nd day of the 7th month.
This is is because the Sabbath and Jubilee years are 13 months long. For the chain of opening and closing assemblies to hold throughout history, the closing assemblies of Tabernacles must be on the 22nd day when the year has 13 months.
This fixes the rule on determining if Tabernacles is 7 days (for common years) or 8 days (for Sabbath and Jubilee years.)
How to Use
The text itself does not specify what, exactly, is to happen in each day of these holiday weeks. There is general direction, but the full importance is left as a mystery.
Unleavened Bread, of course, has a special diet for that week. A very mild type of fast. So everyone following the holiday fasts for at least 7 days each year. This is symbolic of not eating teaching that has been introduced by various teachers, especially written in by scribes and pharisees. But it also means that the stories where people fast, and have encounters, such as Daniel's encounter with Gabriel, can more easily happen in this week.
Tabernacles also has a proscription that everyone should read the entire scripture, at least on the Sabbath and Jubilee years, when that holiday is 8 days long. This, too, is a place of counter. Think of the Ethiopian in his chariot, reading scripture, and a disciple is prophetically sent to him to help. Again, this is a pattern of prophetic that can happen more easily in the Tabernacles week, because of reading scripture.
Is there anything else?
By years of observation, we have seen that anything else prophetic in these individual days of the holidays can be expected to reflect out into the matched prophetic month.
Holidays are Thin
Another way to understand holidays is as a 'thin place.' This term is sometimes used to describe the weeks after a loved one dies. Heaven and earth are close in these times, and survivors often have prophetic events happen involving loved ones who have died.
Holidays are not usually a time when a family member may have died, but they can be a thin place. They are a time when the distance from experiences on earth are less separated from heaven. They are a time to fellowship with Jesus in ways that are easier because these weeks are set apart for that purpose.
Once you understand how the days in the holidays match to months in their respective half year, you are ready to take the next step.
Do these parallel timelines, at a rate of 30:1, stop at 7 days?
The holidays are capturing the minimums. But the math does not stop. The following table is an extension of the table above. In this case an additional 7 days are added to each holiday week, so you can see how the math simply continues.
By inspection on this table you can see something important. The week after Unleavened Bread has the same prophetic months as the Tabernacles week coming later in the year.
The data can be rearranged to help see it better. Here is the week of overlap, where the prophetic month is now on the left.
This is a slice of a longer system. The math works out to 360 or 390 prophetic months for each day in any given year.
The right 2 columns are showing days that are paired, but days pair out across the following (roughly) 30 years.
This is starting to show off prophetic ties between DIFFERENT days through their shared prophetic months. On any given day, there are days that are close, or thin, to today for another 30 years.
Why is this important?
This is the start of the math needed to build prophetic diary systems.
We have built such a system, but it is not online because diary entries involve ARCHIVAL data. This is very difficult to computerize well, as computers and computer companies change every few years. That data must persist across decades. We cannot handle that sort of data publicly for others.
In any case, a simple example may help. In the diary is a dream of a visit to a big house. The dream involved a actual man who lives in western North Carolina who was giving the tour of what was thought to be his house.
Several years later, we were driving north from Atlanta towards North Carolina. Checking the diary that day revealed a that prophetic dream applied to the day we were driving.
A road sign offered an exit to head north to Asheville, North Carolina. We wondered if we should drive that way. Then the dream made sense. Not only go north to Asheville, but we should take the public tour of Biltmore Mansion.
The diary answered the question. It was showing our future.
There is a stand alone calendar app. The URL is here...
Each day in the calendar is clickable. When clicked it will report the prophetic month measured from the previous Passover and measured from the previous Tabernacles.
These Prophetic months stretch well into the future, 30 years or so, and provide a basis for finding fulfillment for personal prophetic, including prophetic dreams and lots.
