One Hour of Heaven’s Time: 41.6 years

Days of Dedication

Days of Deception


NOACH could have resounded the words of 2 Samuel 22 even before shepherd David. Two is the letter Beit. Beit Beit Beit 2 22 with verses declaring The Temple, shelter, ark and your earthly body.

2Sa 22:22 “For I have kept the ways of Adonai, I have not done evil by leaving my God;

2Sa 22:23 for all his rulings were before me, I did not depart from his regulations.

Noach was saved from those who were walking after their own ways. Adonai lifted Noach up on one of the highest rocks in the world. He was told to build a shelter, a shield against the violent waters. “Out of his temple he heard my voice, and my cry entered his ears.”

The violent earthquakes lifted up the land as it opened for the foundations of the deep to release their waters that would cover the entire earth. The smoke of volcanoes with their devouring fire made new mountains as thick smoke lowered the heavens and put darkness on the earth. His children were pulled up to safety from the thunderings and lightening arrows that shot across the earth. They did not leave the earth but were protected during the storm just as Goshen shown with light in Egypt’s darkness.

The noise was deafening and shook their souls within them…bringing them to whisper a song of praise for their deliverance even as their friends were removed from the earth through physical death.

The shelter Adonai provided spoke of the real Rock that would come in the 40th Jubilee of the earth. At 4000 years from Adam the second Adom (that had spiritual blood) would become The Rock upon which all would stand. Adonai’s torah (instruction) would be their rock as He was their living Rock.

Noach sat upon the violent waters for one year waiting new instructions. After one year of violent waters they seemed to be sucking them down to shoel as water swirls appeared across the earth. After sitting 22.5 ft above the mountains of Ararat at Nissan they would be consecrated for another 42 days that began on Cheshvan 17 ending 1 Tevet.

The animals were released from the ark after one year and 10 days; Cheshvan 27. But, it would be one year and 42 days later that Noach’s family was instructed they could depart the ark. That date was 1 Tevet. This is the same pattern first experienced with Adam and Chanoh. They were in the Gan of Eden 7 years exactly and 42 days and then removed to a different land.

Adam was created after the chaos of water over the earth had calmed. Adam and Noach are both associated with violence of waters. They also parallel each other in that both of them have Cheshvan 17 as their ”day of trouble’. Chanoah and Adam are deceived on Cheshvan 17 and Noach’s Flood begins on Cheshvan 17. Adonai remembers the days of our deception.

And, the date of both of their removals to a new location will be the rosh chodesh (new moon) of Month Four, known today as 1 Tevet. Adam and Noach experience the same exact days of Cheshvan 17 to 1 Tevet as their ’42-day’ of consecration time.

Thus, Adam and Noach were the world’s first ‘Days of Dedication’. Adam and Noach experienced the first “Chanukah.” We think of the Maccabees help of restoring The Temple in 163 BCE as being the first Feast of Dedication but history tells us it began with Adam…and continued with Noach. The Temple had been secured in Month Three known today as Kislev. Kislev 25 was chosen as the beginning date of dedication which went for eight day. Thus, 1 Tevet is Day 7 of that celebration.

Adam and Noach were both instructed to take an extra 42 days to consider what direction they wanted their lives to go. They all knew that Yahweh was real and ALL powerful. Their families had witnessed God’s power in their lives and now they were both given 42 days to determine their new life course. Would they walk in the ways of Adonai or would they allow themselves to be deceived?

Adam, Noach, Mosch are David’s ancestors that felt the same distress of God turning away in order to bring His justice to the earth. David knew Adonai as his living Rock. But he still felt himself between a rock and hard place for FORTY years as he served God’s appointed man, King Sha’ul.

Forty-Two is a number of being ‘silenced’ from the Creator. It is a time for man to consider what he wants to do with the rest of his life. God tells us that if we only want to enjoy life on earth now then to go ahead but do it without hurting others. Why? Because that is all that there is going to be for you. But, for David, Adam, Noach, Mosch, Rahab the harlot, Abraham and Sarah they chose to go by the ways of Adonai…which when in action showed their heart to Yahweh. It was heart-prayer and action that resulted in their being able to have Yahweh still talk to them and be their Elohim.

The number 42 associates with 42 weeks as being the full gestation period of a human being. It is also associated with 3.5 years which can show up as labor pains and then as the delivery of The Messiach.

Forty-two is almost one hour of time with Heaven…as one day is 1000 years to God. 41.6 years is one hour; 20.8 years is one-half hour.

Let us remember that the last hours of tribulation are cut short by a little bit so not ALL mankind will perish. 41.6 is not quite 42….the number of hours, days, years, jubilees of ‘consecration’.

20.8 is not quite one-half hour. 21 is perfect timing (3×7). Just as Jacob left Laban in year 20 and it was then that Rachel gave birth to Benjamin on the road at probably the end of year 21..beginning year 22. Jacob’ third Shemittah cycle ends in distress so Year 1 of the fourth Shemittah cycle can acquire the ‘son of strength’. Four is dahlet/door and One is aleph represented by an ox. Benjamin was the door to Jacob’s strength just as Yeshua is the first door to our hearts that moves us in action.

David’s distress brought him to this song relating to all of us today.

2Sa 22:1 David said the words of this song to Adonai on the day Adonai delivered him from the power of all his enemies and from the power of Sha’ul.

2Sa 22:2 He said: “Adonai is my Rock, my fortress and deliverer,

2Sa 22:3 the God who is my Rock, in whom I find shelter, my shield, the power that saves me, my stronghold and my refuge. My savior, you have saved me from violence.

2Sa 22:4 I call on Adonai, who is worthy of praise; and I am saved from my enemies.

2Sa 22:5 “For death’s breakers were closing over me, the floods of B’liya`al terrified me,

2Sa 22:6 the ropes of Sh’ol were wrapped around me, the snares of death lay there before me.

2Sa 22:7 In my distress I called to Adonai; yes, I called to my God. Out of his temple he heard my voice, and my cry entered his ears.

2Sa 22:8 “Then the earth quaked and shook, the foundations of heaven trembled. They were shaken because he was angry.

2Sa 22:9 Smoke arose in his nostrils; and from his mouth, devouring fire, with coals blazing from it.

2Sa 22:10 He lowered heaven and came down with thick darkness under his feet.

2Sa 22:11 He rode on a keruv and flew, he was seen on the wings of the wind.

2Sa 22:12 He made darkness his canopy around him, thick clouds in the skies dense with water.

2Sa 22:13 From the brightness before him, fiery coals flamed out.

2Sa 22:14 “Adonai thundered from heaven, Ha`Elyon sounded his voice.

2Sa 22:15 He sent out arrows and scattered them; with lightning he routed them.

2Sa 22:16 The channels of the sea appeared, the foundations of the world were exposed at Adonai’s rebuke, at the blast of breath from his nostrils.

2Sa 22:17 “He sent from on high, he took me and pulled me out of deep water;

2Sa 22:18 he rescued me from my powerful enemy, from those who hated me, for they were stronger than I.

2Sa 22:19 They came against me on my day of calamity, but Adonai was my support.

2Sa 22:20 “He brought me out to an open place; he rescued me, because he took pleasure in me.

2Sa 22:21 Adonai rewarded me for my uprightness, he repaid me because my hands were clean.

2Sa 22:22 “For I have kept the ways of Adonai, I have not done evil by leaving my God;

2Sa 22:23 for all his rulings were before me, I did not depart from his regulations.

2Sa 22:24 I was pure-hearted toward him and kept myself from my sin.

2Sa 22:25 “Hence Adonai repaid me for my uprightness, according to my purity in his view.

2Sa 22:26 With the merciful, you are merciful; with the champion of purity, you are pure;

2Sa 22:27 with the honest, you are honest; but with the crooked you are cunning.
