Entry to the Holy of Holies prepares one for Holy Bible discussion about the most sacred writings.  Precise definitions of ancient calendar mathematics perhaps 10,000-years ago are in the Antediluvian Calendar of the Patriarchs.  The "begat" family descendants following Adam is from chapter 5 of Genesis.

Preparation is necessary to continue this discussion of the Holy Bible and some of the world's oldest and most sacred writings.  The numbers recorded are absolute,Guest Posting precise definitions of ancient calendar mathematics perhaps 10,000-years ago.  The Antediluvian Patriarchs, or pre-flood fore fathers, are generally considered simply leaders.  The Patriarchs include the "begat" family descendants following Adam in chapter 5 of Genesis.  Like the ancestry of Kings and Pharaohs, entire epochs of time describe the lifetime rule.  A primary age measures years from birth to fatherhood of the next named son for each character.  A secondary age then follows until the character's death.  All primary ages form the primary age category and secondary ages constitute the secondary age category.  The Bible sums the primary and secondary ages to give a lifetime age total for each character.  Our study will span the named Patriarchs from Adam through Enoch.

In Old Testament days, the Holy of Holies or the Most Holy Place, was the most sacred part of a temple.  Levite priests were the only people allowed to enter the Holy of Holies during special worship times.  Priests burned incense and performed sacrificial ceremonies.  The famous Ark of the Covenant adorned this Most Holy Place.  The Holy of Holies was usually located toward the rear of the Tabernacle and surrounded by a thick curtain (Exodus Ch. 25-40).  Inside the Holy of Holies, a golden lamp stand, table, incense altar and bronze altar usually accompanied the Ark of the Covenant.  The table held the "Bread of the Presence".  The Ark and most tabernacle furnishings had rings and carrying poles.  Sheets of gold covered the portable furnishings.

God specifically directed Moses to build the Ark of the Covenant for the liberated Hebrews.  Leviticus combines the Jewish sacred calendar year of feasts and festivals with relevant topics about holiness.  Rules for keeping 7-day Sabbaths have supreme importance.  Various movements within Judaism perpetuate associated customs.  Physical objects of ritualistic worship decorated priestly ceremonies.

The Ark of the Covenant has symbolized Judaism at large for the last several thousand years of the traditional Jewish calendar.  The Ark was a consecrated object that symbolized a portable Most Holy Place for the temple.  Joshua later led the Israelites across the Jordan River near Jericho.  When the priests who carried the same Ark reached the Jordan River and their feet touched the water's edge, the water from upstream stopped flowing.  This miracle demonstrates the power of the Lord resting upon the Ark of the Covenant in the midst of the river Jordan.

Joshua 3:17

And the priests that bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD stood firm on dry ground in the midst of Jordan, and all the Israelites passed over on dry ground, until all the people were passed clean over Jordan.

The Lord's wrath demands equal respect.  King Uzziah of Judah learned that pride can be one's downfall.  Uzziah transgressed against the Lord his God by entering the Most Holy Place with intentions of burning incense upon the altar.  When confronted by Azariah the priest and eighty others, the reserved practice of burning incense to the Lord in the temple became apparent.  The priests warned King Uzziah.

2 Chronicles 26:18

And they withstood Uzziah the king, and said unto him, It appertaineth not unto thee, Uzziah, to burn incense unto the LORD, but to the priests the sons of Aaron, that are consecrated to burn incense: go out of the sanctuary; for thou hast trespassed; neither shall it be for thine honour from the LORD God.

King Uzziah became angry, and while still holding a censor to burn incense, he was afflicted.  Leprosy broke out on Uzziah's forehead at that very moment.  King Uzziah was a leper, forced to live separate and excluded for the rest of his life.

These two examples help illustrate the importance of maintaining the sanctity of the temple, and especially the Holy of Holies.  Like Torah scrolls, the Holy Bible and other documentary evidence, the method of media used to convey an accurate representation of the Word of God is incidental to the fundamental knowledge gained.  Sacred calendar information is a very dedicated part of that Word, and reflects the kind of knowledge with which Moses left Egypt.  Gold laden artifacts and incense were merely ritualistic.  The essence of a living God was abstract without either form or flesh.  The oldest knowledge of the Word supplemented the Exodus venture.

Lunar/solar calendars were used in ancient times to measure these ages.  A theology that aligned mechanics of the lunar/solar calendar with the lives of prevailing rulers weighed heavily upon ancient records.  King lists and spiritual rulers often shared the heavenly realm.  Special mediators between God above and mortal people below, the Antediluvian Patriarchs provide new revelations.

Calendar research of the Holy Bible begins with basic lunar counting procedures.  Spiritual connotations and literal translations aid our present understanding.  Ideas of God coming between, separating and dividing time expanded to include months and years.  Worship principles encompassed lunar/solar calendars of ancient people.  The Jewish Calendar is the oldest l/s calendar still in continuous use for Jewish people.  A survey of the Jewish Calendar and the 19-year l/s calendar cycle traces the origins back to the Exodus.  Agricultural feasts and festivals were ordained in scripture.  Intercalary days add 7-months, or 209 days, in unceasing 7-day weeks to keep the lunar-side of the calendar on track with the solar-side.  The Jewish Calendar is a lunar/solar model to help explore similar calendar instruments.

Ancient people of the Mediterranean coastlands, Mesopotamia and the Yucatan Peninsula shared lunar/solar calendar concepts and religious practices.  Past evidence already exists to secure a vantage point that renders pre-historical culture.  Calendar tools develop to apply consistent lunar/solar perceptions to other time reckoning systems.  A 360-day length of year centers every year between 354-day-lunar-years and 365-day-solar-years.  The architecture of stepped temples, mythological lore and sacred texts document relationships long ago.  Ruling authorities often displayed calendar records on standing stones or sacred pillars.  Engravings and testimonials provide supporting evidence.  Extended treatment of lunar-side and solar-side components create lunar/solar calendars for numbered multiples of years.  Mystical interpretation aligns gods and deities with cosmology.  Jewish, Egyptian and Mesoamerican calendar techniques are useful examples of ancient past calendars.

The Egyptian Calendar recognizes a 1,460-year Sothic Cycle.  Converging pyramid slopes introduce cascaded time thinking.  Controlling stars, named for gods, exerted influence during set astronomical cycles.  Numerical matching of X number of days with X number of years was also a common characteristic of ancient calendars.  Identical lunar/solar origins led to using 210-days, or 7-months of 30-days each, in a 20-year l/s cycle.  Mesoamerican 20-year l/s cycles squared to become 400-year-Baktun-cycles.  Numerical matching scaled the intercalary 210-days to signify 210-years for every 400-year-Baktun-cycle.  Two 400-year-Baktun-cycles add together to create an 800-year Generation Cycle.   The 800-year Generation Cycle repeats for each character from Adam to Jared in the secondary age category.  Some features and folklore surrounding the Egyptian Calendar transferred to the Western Hemisphere about 3,000 B.C.E.

Legends and calendar evidence survives to indicate Mesoamerican culture adopted l/s calendar traits.  Individual calendars of the Yucatan Peninsula branched to become the Aztec, Incan and Mayan Calendars.  Gears serve to illustrate Mesoamerican 52-year Calendar Round operations.  The bulk of this work refers to accepted Mayan nomenclature for established time cycles.  The sacred 260-day-Tzolken-year and civil 360-day-Tun-year multiplied together in the 52-year Calendar Round.  Egyptian and Mayan calendars add a special 5-day festival period at the end of the year.  A 360-day-Tun-year lengthens for the complete solar 365-day-Haab-year.  Background material gained from the ancient Jewish, Egyptian and Mayan Calendars allows us to penetrate more deeply than ever before.  The Book of Enoch and the Book of Jubilees impart more sacred text evidence of distant past calendars.

The unifying methodology of combined lunar/solar calendar systems climaxes to explain time recorded for the Antediluvian Patriarchs in the Holy Bible.  Beginning with the Ages of Adam, we have the proper calendar tools to understand extreme past lifestyle.  The archaic style of early people measured time.  Each character lists a primary age from birth to fatherhood and a secondary age until death.  Significant l/s calendar times correlate with numbered ages in the primary age category.  For Adam, the primary 130-year age matches half of the 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle.  Two 400-year-Baktun-cycles add to make Adam’s secondary age 800-year Generation Cycle.  Secondary ages from Adam through Jared link with multiples of the 400-year-Baktun-cycle in the Mayan 5200-year Great Cycle.

Lunar/solar separation time divides in half to expose the primary 105-year age of Seth.  The secondary 807-year age of Seth repeats an 800-year Generation Cycle.  The last 5-years in Seth’s primary 105-year age compares equally to the last 7-sacred-years of the secondary age category.  Time reckoning in Genesis shares identification of specific intervals with names and numbers.  Number patterns are the framework of calendar science.

A correlation exists between the ages written for the Antediluvian Patriarchs and specific lunar/solar calendar information known long ago.  Prehistoric style established numbering to mark the passage of time.  Days and years count according to the most ancient calendar system ever devised.  The Holy Bible preserved time by naming eras for past monarchs.  In remote history, knowledge and power coincided with operation of the calendar.  Short summaries for the Biblical ages of Adam and Seth follow.  Time Emits has published a separate Holy of Holies for the listed Patriarchs Enos, Cainan, Mahaleel, Jared and Enoch.

A special place called the Holy of Holies was common to ancient Judaism and compares with ancient Egyptology.  Entry to this area of the temple was limited to the religious elect.  Reasons for protecting this very sacred calendar material preserved the social framework of theocracy.  Supernatural occurrences manifested in predictable ritual and behavior inside the Holy of Holies.  Seemingly random magical instances occasionally transpired upon worshipping participants.

By testimony and spiritual occurrences written in the Holy Bible, we accept proof of miraculous deeds.  Optimizing our lives to seek Him is a fundamental purpose of time.  A substantial relationship exists between time and the Holy Spirit.  Very old time cycles in this vein awaken dormant magical forces.  Virtually untapped resources having divine properties expose.  Raw manifestations directly happen to an elevated level of spiritual awareness.  The discerning person realizes paranormal situations through personal dreams and emotions.  Some instances can alter the physical form world.  Our search to know the ways and mindset of God may lead to spontaneous and unexpected actions.  Religion reserves Sabbaths and other worship times to connect people with the Almighty.

These numbers and their meanings are the actual building blocks of time itself.  Time Emits will continue the quest to do calendar research in conjunction with the Holy Bible.  The Holy of Holies will detail similar calendar practices and analysis for the Antediluvian Patriarchs from Enos, the grandson of Adam, to Enoch.  Penetrate hundreds and even thousands of years, unto the foundations of the world with the eternal Lord.  The Holy of Holies follows Ages of Adam to deliver an ultimate message to those who have understanding.

Thousands of years have elapsed since the first Patriarchs began measuring time.  The course of world history has obscured exact characterizations and meanings of the Antediluvian times.  The floating history offered by Genesis 5 is unfixed in terms of modern Gregorian calendar dating.  Long ago and today, the calendar date stamps past events.  Modern science adapts ancient history to fit our solar calendar system.  The intention dates every event within the confines of B.C.E. or A.D. to establish or enhance credibility.

Two entirely different subjects are worth pondering.  The absolute age of the Holy Bible and the general viewpoint regarding human anthropology cede to discussion.  These commencements need addressing before anyone can posit a date for the Creative Week.  Jewish scholars regressing backward from 359 C.E. and the standardized modern Jewish Calendar, have attempted to determine Creation by mixing calendar science with known events.  To some extent, the Egyptian Calendar emerges as a guideline.  The Egyptian Calendar supports the Deluge in 2,345 B.C.E., the Exodus between 1,460-1,470 B.C.E and many other significant dates in Jewish chronology.  Maya writings and calendar studies advanced in western chronology following the 1950’s.  Over 100 years of archeology and exploration have led to the modern version of the Mayan Calendar.

The best way to map chronology is to benefit from the same calendar system that ancient people once lived by.  Ages listed in Genesis mandate that scientists adjust their calculations to a corresponding lunar/solar strategy.  Treating these numbers as superfluous or abstract dismisses tremendous potential.  Culture, art and history have deeply rooted facets in the ancient past.  The ramifications of this calendar science discovery to the world are monumental.

Are you a pastor, educator or a student of the Holy Bible?  Timeemits.com seeks anointed people to review and contribute to the Ages of Adam ministry.  Ancient lunar/solar calendars like the Jewish and Mayan calendars provide the background to understanding early time.  Ancient calendars of the Holy Bible use differences between the moon and sun, numerical matching and a 364-day calendar year to describe X-number of days that match with X-number of years.  Ages of Adam is a free read at timeemits.
