The 9th Hebrew Month. Kislev 2012. This coming week (Thurs. Nov.

15th, 2012) begins the 9th month on the Hebrew calendar. It is a month of intrigue that cannot be understood or ascertained apart from the Hebrew language. It is a contradiction to see November referred to as the 11th month on the Gregorian calendar, when even the Latin name itself means 9. Is it possible the Roman church understood the significance of this calendar and intentionally changed it in order to circumvent our understanding? You decide. Its Hebrew name, Kislev, evokes images colored by historical events that took place during the month and became eschatological prophetic pictures of future events whose unveiling is limited to that select group privy to the Hebrew language! Since it looms before us, shouldnt we look for its clues about the End Days? Lets do it! Tet-9. First of all, well address the numerical significance 9: Throughout Torah the number 9 is associated with finality the cutting off of man judgment. It is associated with the Hebrew letter Tet which in the modern form resembles an upside-down or inverted womb. It is said to be depicting a serpent coiled. The first time we see this letter used in Torah is in Gen. 1: 4 where light is created and referred to as Good, #2896, towb. Ironically, the number 9 is associated with the gestational cycle, and it is during this 9th month that we see the Light of the World Messiah Yahshua, being conceived and introduced into the world. The precedent set in Gen. 1: 4 reveals that Light is good Tov, and yet must be separated from darkness. Thus the Letter Tet, becomes a paradox, hinting at both good and evil. How so? Yahshua the Light is born out of a womb (woman) who had death/darkness working in her. It is good! The plan of Salvation is revealed! Additionally, the original Masoretic texts reveal an enlarged Tet in Ex. 2:2 (calling attention to the womb) describing Moshe at birth as Tov good! Moshe is #4872,


Mosheh and when dissected, the Mem prefix indicates source of origin, from,
out of, or womb. The root-stem is the Shin-Hey, #7716, seh-lamb. Thus, instead of the common One drawn out of the water, it could infer the Lamb from the womb! How fitting, as Moshe is a shadow picture of Messiah who is also depicted as the Light born out of darkness! How apropos for this 9th month to continue the paradox: Out of darkness Light will come! Thus, it was no accident that a change in

the Stellar Houses was occurring at this time: From Pharaoh House of the Bull/Taurus, to Moshe House of the Lamb/Aries! Literally, a Lamb born out of darkness! TOV! Curiously, if you subtract the numerical values: Darkness, choshek = 328, Light, ' owr = 207, the remainder is 121, which is the gematria of #5654, Obed Edom, the man who kept the Ark of the Covenant until the King (David) came for it! Translated Servant of Edom (Adam) the one I will blood. The Light of the World is revealed in a physical covering until the King brings it to the Tabernacle! The pattern continues again, another thrilling connection to the events associated with this 9th month Kislev! Kislev: II. As mentioned previously, this is an intriguing month. How so? The Hebrew language reveals additional insight. Kislev, #3691, Kiclev, is traditionally rendered, his confidence. It comes from the root of Kesel, which means loins, the waist area the area of procreation. The two-letter root stem, Kaf-Samech, means a throne, and also lends itself to describing a full moon the 15th, the optimum time of fertilization! [Remember: Yahshua is conceived at this time during Chanukah]. Its gematria is 116, the same as #653 apelah, a fem. Noun meaning darkness! Is it hinting at the Word Seed from the Throne being planted in the fertile womb during this month? Indeed! Ironically, this same root word, kesel, can mean trust or confidence. Does that affect the seed being received and conception occurring? Again, Yes! If we break the word Kiclev apart, we could then say: Kaf-Samech, Kes, (trust/ Seed/ Throne) Lamed-Vav, lev, heart! Trust the Seed from the Throne in your heart! To add further, the word for darkness used above (apelah) signifies physical darkness like the 9 th plague on Egypt, just before the death of the first-born requiring the Lambs blood to redeem those in the house! The Tet is the least used of all Hebrew letters yet it appears in both the verses associated with this plague: Ex. 10:21, 22. Verse 21 has 51 letters; verse 22 has 48 letters for a total of 99! The letter Tet (9) is used 11 times in this chapter 9x11=99. Now, lets move a bit further. The only mention of the word Kiclev is found twice, once each in Nehemiah 1: 1 and Zech. 7:1. The phrase, the month Kislev has a value of 430, the same as the years of bondage in Egypt and the

gematria of the phrase tohu va bohu waste and desolate (darkness is upon the face of the deep). In both instances, YHVH births Light His Son/Word/Seed out of the dark, desolate situation! In each of these verses there are a total of 114 letters (55+59) which is the gematria of #5939, alatah, a fem. Noun meaning thick darkness! We have the insight provided by the proper names of Nehemiah son of Hachaliah,

Nehemiah is translated, Yah will comfort, while Hachaliah,

#2447, means dark, dull. Thus, YHVH will comfort those who come out of darkness! Zechariah is rendered Yah remembers or marks. We have the confirmation of the Promise! That YHVH will remember His Word and comfort those who are called out of darkness into His marvelous light! 1Pet. 2:9! Do we have additional witnesses beside those in the Earth? The Heavens declare III. This 9th month is connected to the constellational sign of Sagittarius, known by its Hebrew name Keset, #7198, qesheth, a fem. Noun indicating a bow or rainbow. Primarily connected to the sign of the covenant set in the heavens in Gen. 9: 13, 14, 16. It can also infer a bow or an archer. Hence, the common name of this constellation Archer. Of all the tribes of Israel, Benjamin is the only one who seemed to pursue archery to any purpose (1 Samuel 20:20, 36; 2 Samuel 1:23) and it is Benjamin who is connected to this 9th month! Coincidence? Not! And, Benjamin is the only son of Jacob to not BOW to Esau! He is first mentioned in Gen. 35:18, where we find as the soul of Rachel is departing Benjamin is born. Remember, he is first named Ben-Oni, Son of My Sorrows, but Jacob changes his name to Son of the Right Hand! Again, the Redemption message is seen, one transferred from death, sorrow, darkness to the place of Inheritance. The word for soul here, #5315,

nephesh, again has a gematria of 430 once more connecting us to desolation,

darkness and bondage! Furthermore, the temple in Jerusalem (Remember ObedEdom) is built on territory belonging to Benjamin. To shore up our witness in the heavens lets look at one of the decans (houses) in this constellation: Ara, The Altar. Placed below the Scorpions tail, it is a small asterism of nine stars. The picture shows a fire burning on an altar. The Arabic name is AL MUGAMRA, the completing or finishing. The Greek name ARA usually meaning cursing. This sign, though brief in message, tells of the future removal from the earth of the curse of evil. Matthew 25:41 describes the scene:

Then shall he (Yahshua) say also unto them (the goats of verse 33) on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels. Incidentally, the Altar is turned upside down with the fire pointing to the Earth, symbolizing the purging or cleansing occurring during this sign! In Gen. 49: 27, Benjamin is likened to a wolf who ravins, #2963, taraph tears/consumes his prey. It infers to crave food. *Note the TET! Scientists tell us that specific cravings for foods originate in the kidney which is another meaning for the name Kiclev or kesel! It also infers this month as that of cleansing or purging the BODY! Everything discussed thus far continues to connect us to the purpose of this 9th month it is a time of purging that will separate Light from Darkness. Kislev & Chanukah. IV. Kislev is most famous for its Festival Chanukah: Chanukah is an eight-day Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt of the 2nd century BCE against Antiochus Epiphanes. During this period, he forbids circumcision, Sabbath worship, and the Torah. After the successful revolt, the Temple is rededicated and the Menorah restored. Thus, Chanukah is observed for eight nights, starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar, and may occur from late November to late December on the Gregorian calendar. The festival is observed by the kindling of the lights of a special candelabrum, the nine-branched Menorah or Hanukiah, one light on each night of the holiday, progressing to eight on the final night. An extra light called a Shamash (Hebrew: "guard" or "servant") is also lit each night for the purpose of lighting the others, and is given a distinct location, usually above or below the rest. Because of its peculiar End-Time significance, Chanukah stands out from all the other Holy Convocations. How? The desecration of the Temple by Antiochus, mentioned above, mirrors the future Abomination of Desolation spoken of by Daniel the Prophet, in Dan. 9: 27, 11:31 & 12: 11. Lets examine the first verse a bit: Dan. 9: 27 (*Note the 9: [3x9=27]) And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make [it] desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Confirm, #1396, gabar, to be strong, mighty, and powerful. It has the same consonants as #1401, gibbar, which is used to reference the Mighty Ones, I.E. the Giants. He will confirm the covenant with many for 1 week? Not a covenant as we know, but this covenant which will involve a mingling of Seed lines! Overspreading, #3671, kanaph, winged border, corner. It infers the mantle used to cover a man at night and thus spread over his wife, or in this instant, consort. Abominations, #8251, shiqquwts, translated detestable, an abomination, an idol, abhorrent, blasphemous, filth. Its root is from Shin Qof, Saq, a sack or sackcloth. The covering of the loins. Desolate, #8074, shamem, desolate, appalled, stunned, to be deflowered! The Shin means to destroy, while the Mem-Mem spells Mem, waters, and chaos. Thus, the Anti-Messiah is bringing another HUSBAND to the INTIMATE place, in order to deflower those who embrace him. This will cause the Kingdom to be reproached and they will drink the Bitter Waters of destruction. Ironically, the numeric value of shamem = 380, is the same as LASHON, The Tongue. The Tongue or language of the Anti-Messiah will be a counterfeit of the The Tongue of YHVH Hebrew! Understanding this restored tongue will afford sanctuary to those who return to the Torah! 380 was also the value of the dimensions of Noahs Ark: 300x50x30. This vessel preserved the seed line during the great purging! Restoring Light out of Darkness! The Shin-Mem-Mem root is first seen in Gen. 1: 8 where YHVH calls the Firmament, #7549, raqiya` Heaven, #8064, shamayim. The two-letter root Resh-Qof infers to rot, decay, putrefy. The waters above and waters below, indicate the Seed of the Fallen and the Seed of Adam, thus YHVH puts the destroying waters that will rot and putrefy between the Seed lines to judge them! The Bitter Waters of Jealousy! Consummation, #3617, kalah, completion, full end, riddance, annihilation. It is also the root of the word for Bride Kallah! If I read this correctly, the Anti-Messiah is going to re-establish a covenant with the Adulterous Bride in order to mingle his seed with hers until the judgment determined for her is poured on her! Rev. 17:1, 2. The Greek connotes

imagery of more than just sitting on physical waters or oceans, and more than just a multitude of people. Within the context of her fornication, it infers she was sitting upon and received the seed of the Fallen Ones. The same picture of Rachael sitting upon the House Gods of Laban! Interestingly, Yahshua is conceived at this season! The Festival of Lights! What an ideal time to introduce the Fallen Seed again, as a counterfeit! Thus, we glean how important it is to resist the darkness during this season of purging testing and allow the Light of Yahshua The Seed of YHVH His Hebrew language, to fill us!
