Key Information Used in this Document:

We will point out as we start this study, when brethren are trying to understand the Scriptures, you cannot understand the generational timeline through the Word, using the "Roman calendar", it will not work.

You also must know Yahwehs Solar Lunar Calendar to understand the death burial and the resurrection of Yahshua, and other Truths, as the Scriptures are written by Yahudah (Jewish) Hebrew people. And they used Yahwehs Lunar Solar Scriptural Calendar -
Bersheeth (Genesis) 1:14

When I understood that YHWH's calendar is a Solar Lunar Calendar, the Scriptures suddenly made much more understanding. A Solar Lunar Calendar has 354 days in a year of 12 months, and approximately every three years there is a 13th month, the sun and the moon is YHWH's calendar. Bersheeth (Genesis) 1:14 An in depth study about the Restoration of YHWH's Lunar Solar Scriptural Calendar is available at our website at www.yhrim.com
 

Numbers 14:34 forty days was turned into forty years

Bamidbar (Numbers) 14:34 After the number of the days in which you searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall you bear your iniquities, even forty years, and you shall know the result of straying from Me.

 Throughout this document you will read a day for a year this comes from Bamidbar (Numbers) 13 and the 14 chapter

Yahshua's statement about 3 days

Yochanan (John) 2:18 Then answered the Yahudim (Jews) and said to Him, What sign will You show us, seeing that You are doing these things?
19 Yahshua answered and said to them, Destroy this Beit HaMikdash (Temple), and in three days I will raise it up.
20 Then said the Yahudim, Forty-six years this Beit HaMikdash (Yahweh's Temple on MT. Moriah) was being built, and will You raise it up in three days?
21 But He spoke of the Beit HaMikdash (Temple) of His body.

The sign that Yahshua spoke about was that He would arise in three days from the tomb.

The Jewish people thought Yahshua was talking about the physical Temple, Yahshua was telling them and us that He would arise the third day.


 Note: A person must know the Feast Days to understand when Yahshua started His ministry to Israel, searching for His lost sheep. Mattityahu (Matthew) 15:24

When did Yahshua's Ministry Begin to the people of Israel?

Yochanan (John) 2:13 And the Yahudim's (Jews) Pesach (Passover) was at hand, and Yahshua went up to Yahrushalayim (Jerusalem)
14 And found in the Beit HaMikdash (Yahweh's Temple on Mount Moriah) those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:
15 And when He had made a whip of small cords, He drove them all out of the Beit HaMikdash (Yahweh's Temple on Mt. Moriah), and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;
16 And said to them that sold doves, Take these things away; make not My Abba's (Fathers) Bayit (house) into a Bayit (house) of merchandise.

In John we read this is when Yahshua started His ministry, when He drove out the money changer from Yahwehs Temple on Mount Moriah.

Yahshua started His ministry at the Passover season Aviv the first month of the year.


When did Yahshua's Ministry End to the people of Israel?

First we must understand that Yahshua only ministered 3 years. We have shown in John 2:13-16 when Yahshua ministry started. Next we must ask, when did Yahshua's ministry end?

Mattityahu (Matthew) 21:12 And Yahshua went into the Beit HaMikdash (Yahweh's Temple on MT. Moriah) of Yahweh, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the Beit HaMikdash, (Yahweh's Temple on MT. Moriah) and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,
13 And said to them, It is written, My Bayit (house) shall be called the Bayit (house) of tefillah (prayer); but you have made it a den of thieves and violent men.

In Mattityahu (Matthew) 21:1-13 you read that Yahshua came riding into Jerusalem on a donkey, this was at the Passover season, and He cast out the money changers once again. It was at this Passover Season that Yahshua was betrayed and crucified.

Yahshua started His ministry at the Passover season and His ministry ended at Passover season, exactly 3 years from the time He started.

In these verses we have just read Yochanan (John) 2:13-16 and Mattityahu (Matthew) 21:1-13 they explains that Yahshua ministered for exactly 3 years. (Not 3 ½ years)


Note: Each person searching for truth must understand this point that Yahshua ministered for exactly 3 years just as these Scriptures state.

In Mathew Yahshua states that Yonah (Jonah) was a Sign

Mattityahu (Matthew) 12:39 But He answered and said to them, An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the navi (Prophet) Yonah (Jonah):
40 For as Yonah (Jonah) was three days and three nights in the fish's belly; so shall the Ben Ahdahm (Yahshua) be three days and three nights in the lev (heart) of the earth.
41 The men of Ninveh shall rise in the Yom HaDin (Judgment Day) with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the proclaiming (preaching) of Yonah (Jonah); and, see, a Greater than Yonah (Jonah) is here.


People know that Jonah was in the fish's belly for three day and three nights, so they believe that Yahshua had to spend three days and three nights in the tomb. (That's not so)

First my brethren you must understand that Jonah was sent unto Nineveh to preach to them to repent. Jonah being in the fish's belly for 3 days and 3 nights just made him willing to preach to Nineveh.


When Yahshua said that He would be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights, Yahshua was not telling us that He would be in the tomb three days and three nights.

What Yahshua said, was that He would be in the Heart of the Earth for three day and three nights! Yahshua was stating that He would preach and minister in Jerusalem the heart of the earth for exactly 3 years. Jerusalem has always been the central point of worship for all of Israel. (Jerusalem is the heart of the earth)

Yahshua started ministering at Passover Season, and 3 years later at Passover Season He was crucified, (Exactly 3 years).

This is the sign that He spoke about as Jonah preached to Nineveh, Yahshua preached and ministered for 3 years to Israel.


Two men on the road to Em-ma-us (Amma-Us) said, "Today is the Third Day"

Luka (Luke) 24:21 But we trusted that it was He who should have redeemed Yisrael (Israel): and besides all this, today is the third day since these things were done.

In Luka (Luke) 24:13-21 these two men were met by Yahshua on their way to the town of Em-ma-us (Amma-Us), although they did not recognize Him. As the two men discussed the things that had happen to Yahshua, and said that today is the third day since these things were done.

What things? Meaning from His crucifixion to the day they were discussing it, this was the third day the 16th of Aviv, and the day was spent for it was toward evening as Luke (Luke) 24:29 states.

As Yahshua broke bread with the two men, He vanished out of their sight Luke 24:31. These two men returned to Jerusalem to be with the disciples Luke 24:33-34. This is the third day the 16th, then Yahshua appeared to His disciples the same evening Luke 24:36-45.

This is another witness that Yahshua has already been to the Father with His blood and had taken the sheaf, and had returned on the third day the 16th of Aviv the first month. (The 16th of Aviv is the first work day of a week) (The first day of a week has nothing to do with Sunday)

When did Yahshua take the sheaf and His blood to the Father and return?

Yochanan (John) 20:17 Yahshua said to her, Touch Me not; for I am not yet ascended to My Abba (Father): but go to My Yisraelite brothers, and say to them, I ascend to My Abba (Father) and your Abba (Father); and to My Elohim, and your Elohim. (This was the 16th day of Aviv, the first month of the year)


Here is a shadow picture on what Yahshua was going to do the very day he went to Heaven.

In Wayiqra (Leviticus) the 16th chapter Aaron the High Priest went into the Holy of Hollies in the 7 month on the 10th day of the month, the Day of Atonement (Yom HaKippurim), to offer a blood sacrifice offering for himself and for all of Israel, which he would sprinkle on the right side of the Mercy Seat. Leviticus 23:23-28

Before he entered the Holly of Hollies, he had to wash himself in the Lavern, and then he put on the White Linen Priestly Garments, he was physical and ceremonial clean before YHWH.

This is a shadow picture of Yahshua being without spot and without a blemish when He took his own blood and the sheaf to appear before YHWH, therefore He told Mary to touch Me not. (Devarim (Deuteronomy) 16:16 he did not go empty handed) (For more information on the Sheaf go to www.yhrim.com)


Yahshua also told Miryam (Mary) to go and tell His disciples, this was very early in the morning on the 16th of Aviv the first month of the year.

18 Miryam from Magdala came and told the talmidim (disciples) that she had seen Yahshua, and that He had spoken these things to her.

In this verse we see that Mary told the disciples what Yahshua said, this was on the 16th of Aviv.

19 Then the same day at evening, being Yom Rishon (first day of the week), when the doors were shut where the talmidim (disciples) were assembled for fear of the unbelieving Yahudim (Jews) came Yahshua, and stood in their midst, and said to them, Shalom Aleichem (Peace be unto you).

Then the same day at evening Yahshua appeared to His disciples, Yahshua had returned from His Father YHWH, back to His disciples, this was on the 16th of Aviv before the sun had set.

20 And when He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then were the talmidim (disciples) in gilah (rejoice), when they saw Yahshua. R. S.

Here we can see that the disciples rejoiced as He showed to them His hands and His side after Yahshua had return from the Father Yahweh. (The two men that were at Amma-Us had returned and were with the disciples when Yahshua came there that evening. Luka (Luke) 24:13-53)

What is the third day on Yahwehs Calendar?

To understand events in the scriptures, the Sabbath and the Feast Days you must know Yahweh reckoning of time the "Solar Lunar Calendar". This is the calendar that shows how that Yahshua arose from the tomb on the 16thof Aviv.

All of mans holidays such as Easter, Valentine Day, Birth days, Halloween, Christmas, etc, are manmade days they are based on the pagan Roman calendar.

Now to continue to show that Yahshua arose, the 16th day of Aviv

Note: the next five verses are from the Brit Chadasha (Renewed covenant) (N.T) King James Scriptures

Preparation Day

Before every Sabbath there is a preparation day, we will study these three verses in Luke first before we continue with the other four scriptures in the Renewed Covenant (N.T).

1. Luka (Luke) 23:54-56 "54And that day was the preparation, and the Sabbath drew on.
55 And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulcher, and how his body was laid.
56 And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the Sabbath day according to the commandment." The Fourth Commandment - the 15th day which is a weekly & Annual Sabbath

This Scripture is stating it was the Preparation day which is the 14th also Passover day. A weekly Sabbath was drawing near; the 15th of Aviv a Convocation day (Moed) the women rested on that Sabbath day. A weekly, and an Annual Sabbath day, that will occur together at this time each year, Aviv 15th (The women rested on the Sabbath day according to the Commandments).

In the next four verses the women did not know that Yahshua had already risen from the tomb when they came to anoint His body.

2. Mattityahu (Matthew) 28:1 "1 In the end of the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first {day} of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher."

The women return to the sepulcher when the Sabbath was past. They returned on the 16th of Aviv the first day of the week, after Yahshua had risen.

3. Yochanan Moshe (Mark) 16:1 "And when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him. 2 And very early in the morning the first {day} of the week, they came unto the sepulcher at the rising of the sun."


The first day of this week is a work day the 16th day of the month, on the solar lunar calendar. (It has nothing to do with the Roman day, called Sunday).

When the Sabbath was past, meaning the 15th day, it is an annual and a regular Sabbath (A double Sabbath), the women came to the sepulcher very early in the morning, it was the 16th day of Aviv a work day. (Day one of a solar lunar week)

4. Luka (Luke) 24:1 "1 Now upon the first {day} of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulcher, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them."

The women came and certain others with them on the first day of the week very early in the morning bringing the spices, which they had prepared it was the 16th of Aviv. Yahshua had already risen after the 15th day had ended, it being an Annual and a weekly Sabbath day.

5. Yochanan (John) 20:1 "1 The first {day} of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulcher, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulcher." K. J. (All four of these scriptures are Key Scriptures).

In all of the proceeding Scriptures day was added by the translator. As you can see the translator italicized day to show it was added. All of the people came on the first day of the week it was the 16th day of Aviv a work day, Yahshua arose on the third day as we will show later in Figure # 1

It was not Sunday; most people try to prove that Yahshua died on a Wednesday evening and was in the tomb Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and arose at the end of Saturday and was seen on Sunday morning by using a Roman pagan calendar. (The Roman calendar will not work, it is a pagan calendar)

We have already discussed that Yahshua did not have to be in the grave three days and three nights as people claim.

Most people try to use the sign of Jonah, saying that as Jonah was in the fish's belly for three days and three nights, so the son of man had to be in the tomb for 3 days and 3 nights.

When Yahshua spoke of the sign of Jonah, Yahshua was speaking about Jonah preaching to Nineveh, so He (Yahshua) would preach and minister to Israel for 3 years, this is the sign He spoke about.
Mattityahu (Matthew) 12:39-40 (As we have already shown in this document on page 3 & 4)

In figure # 1 following this statement, we show that Yahshua was placed in the tomb before sunset on the 14th Passover Day after they took Him down from the tree. Yahshua did not arise until after the 15th day an Annual and a regular Sabbath had ended,* and then He arose sometime after the 16th had begun on the third day. *(Yahshua arose after the first day of Feast of Unleavened Bread had ended, which is a Annual and weekly Sabbath) (Shown in figure # 1 also in the solar days of a month in figure # 1 A)





These two calendars are the same showing the first month of Aviv in numbers sequence above and lunar sequences below.



In all four verses Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, the translator made it sound like it was Sunday. But the days of the week were numbered 1 through 6 then the Sabbath. Our Messiah was crucified on Aviv 14th He was asleep in the tomb at the end of the 14th and the 15th He arose at the beginning of the 16th or shortly thereafter. Yahshua was the first of the sheaf, Wayiqra (Leviticus) 23:9-12 then others followed in Mattityahu (Matthew) 27:51-53 this happened on the 1st day of the week the 16th day of the month of Aviv.

This calendar month of Aviv along with the 5 scriptures show how Yahshua arose at the beginning of the 16th day. Any part of a day that Yahshua was in the tomb was counted as a day. (That a Hebraic mind set)

"Day" was inserted by the translators therefore Sunday is not the first day of the week as most people would believe, it is a Roman pagan calendar day. We have pointed out in figure # 1 that the month starts with the New Moon, and the New Moon is the first day of each month and is similar to a Sabbath.

We have shown in these Renewed Covenant Scriptures (N.T.) listed above, that the first day of the week is the 16th of the month a work day, and it is not a Sunday as most people believe.

Note: Yahweh only named the first month of the year “Aviv” the start of the year, all other are numbered 2 through 12 months.
Shemoth (Exodus) 34:18

Note: Do you know that months and weeks have pagan names that were given to them?


Note: "Only on a pagan Roman calendar is Sunday the first day of the week". SUNDAY, MONDAY, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, THESE ARE NAMED AFTER PAGAN DEITIES, CALLED G-DS, JUST AS THE MONTHS ARE NAMED AFTER PAGAN DEITIES ON THE ROMAN CALENDAR....

Third Day Scriptures

There are many scriptures stating that Yahshua would arise 'the third day' (meaning from just after it began, to any time during the third day) let's begin in Mathew


1. Mattityahu (Matthew) 16:21 From that time forth began Yahshua to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.

2. Mattityahu (Matthew) 17:22 And while they abode in Galilee, Yahshua said unto them, The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men:
23. And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised again
. And they were exceeding sorry.

3. Mattityahu (Matthew) 20:18 Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death,
19. And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again.

4. Yochanan Moshe (Mark) 9:31 For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son of man is delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day.

5. Yochanan Moshe (Mark) 10:33 Saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes; and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles:
34. And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.

6. Luka (Luke) 9:22 Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day.

7. Luka (Luke) 13:32. And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.

Note: This is a hidden truth stating that to day and to morrow and the third day I shall be perfected, Yahshua is stating after three years of ministering to the people of Israel He would be perfected. (When He arose from the tomb)

Luka (Luke) 18:31 Then he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished.
32. For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on:
33. And they shall scourge him, and put him to death: and the third day he shall rise again.

9. Luka (Luke) 24:7 Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.

10. Luka (Luke) 24:19 And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Yahushua of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before Elohim and all the people:
20. And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him.
21. But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done.

11. Luka (Luke) 24: 46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Messiah to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:

12. Maaseh Shlichim (Acts) 10:38-40 How Elohim anointed Yahushua of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for Elohim was with him.
39. And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:
40. Him Elohim raised up the third day, and shewed him openly;

13. Qorintyah Alef (1st Corinthians) 15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
2. By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
3. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Messiah died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4. And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

All 13 of the previous Scriptures teach that Yahshua would arise 'the third day'.

The next two Scriptures states 'that after three Days' Yahshua would arise from the tomb


Mattityahu (Matthew) 27:63. Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, after three days I will rise again. K.J

Mattityahu (Matthew) 8:31. And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. K.J (Yahshua arose after three days, after three years of ministering)

These two scriptures are stating how the leaders rejected Yahshua (Not the common people), and after three days are a type of after three years, according to Numbers 14:34 a day for a year, Yahshua arose, and therefore they harmonize with the other 13 scriptures.

Note: Yahshua was seen several times for forty days then ascended back to the Father, Maaseh Shlichim (Acts) 1:3 and 9verse and now is seated on the right hand of power making intercessions for us.

I pray that souls will understand that this is the time that Kepha (Peter) spoke about in Maaseh Shlichim (Acts) 3:19-24 also Malachi 4:4-6 (The time of the restoration of all things, doctrinal truths).

1. I pray that we have explained the third day.
2. I pray that we have explained the sign of Jonah in Mattityahu (Matthew) 12:40-41, and the sign that Yahshua spoke to the Jews in Yochanan (John) 2:18.
3. I pray that people will understand that Yahshua went to the Father on the 16th of Aviv, with His own blood, and the wave sheaf of people, that Yahshua took with Him and returned on the same day. (Read Wave Sheaf doc. www.yhrim.com)

I would like to thank Stephen Smith in South Africa for his question on the sheaf, this goes with that subject.

I would also like to thank a young man in our Assembly, Damian Rogers for bring up the question on 3 days, that's when I began to study this truth out.

I pray YHWH bless you according to
Bamidbar (Numbers) 6:23 Speak to Aharon and to his sons, saying, this is the way you shall bless the children of Yisrael (Israel), saying to them:
24 YHWH bless you, and keep you:
25 YHWH make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you:
26 YHWH lift up His countenance upon you, and give you shalom (peace).
27 And they shall put My Name upon the children of Yisrael (Israel); and I will bless them.

Shalom In Yahshuas Name,

Moshe Eliyahu
