Aristean calendar

One may think that I am a conceited person because the perpetual calendar I am proposing is named after me.  True, it is named after me.  But why?  I will explain how the name came about towards the end of the article.  And to put the record straight, I am NOT a conceited person.

In 1992, the perpetual calendar was inspired to me (I believe from the only true God) while I was driving to work one January morning.  The inspiration was “31-30-30, start on Monday.”   ‘It must be a calendar’, I said to myself.  

When I arrived in the office, I immediately drew up the calendar with twelve months divided into four quarters.  Each quarter have three months.  Then I made seven vertical columns for each month for the week starting on Monday.

I made each first month of the quarter, January, April, July, and October, with 31 days, starting the month on Monday and the 31st day, on Wednesday.  The second months of each quarter are February, May, August, and November, with 30 days, starting the month on Thursday and the 30th day, on Friday.  The third months of each quarter are March, June, September, and December, with 30 days, starting the month on Saturday and the 30th day, on Sunday.   The total is 364 days only.  It is short for I know that an ordinary or common year has 365 days, and a leap year has 366 days. 

To maintain that the year starts on Monday, the 365th day must be a neutral day, not a regular named day of the week.  So should the Leap Year Day be.

Being a computer programmer, I designated the 365th day as December 31.  A day should have a date even though it is not assigned any day of the week.  This was easy to do.  The hardest was designating when the Leap Year Day be.  It took me months to decide.  I was leaning towards November 31st.  Finally, in the third quarter of the year, I decided that it should be on June 31st to divide the year equally into two. 

When it was first published on 1992-11-03 in Fairfield Advance, it was plainly designated as Perpetual Calendar.  So was it on its television debut on National Nine News on 1992-12-02.  Later, in about 1994 or 1995, it was named Fernando Perpetual Calendar.  And on 1997-03-13, it became known as the Aristean calendar.

Here are the coincidences that I am saying regarding the calendar.  My name is Aristeo.  It is the Hispanized of the Greek god Aristaeus.  In the Greek language, the root word of Aristaeus is aristo, which means number one or best.  Comparing the Aristean with other calendar proposals, it can easily be seen that it is really the best.  Number one!  Numero uno!

The name of my mother is Gregorian, which is similar to the presently-used Gregorian calendar.  Pope Gregory XIII promulgated this calendar in 1582.  The name of my maternal grandmother is Julita, which is similar to the Julian calendar.  Julius Caesar introduced this calendar in 46 B.C.  The parallelism or correspondence is striking: Gregorian, Gregorian calendar; Julita, Julian calendar.  They are even in the same order!  And now, I find myself proposing a calendar to replace the Gregorian.  It is still an association with calendars.

I have noticed that it is the first names of my mother and my grandmother that are related to our calendar.  This is the reason why I used my first name in naming the calendar I am proposing.

The house number of the upper floor of the house where I lived in Manila is 1583.  The house number of the lower floor is 1579.  Where is 1581?  The significance of 1583 is that it follows 1582, the year when the Gregorian calendar was promulgated by Pope Gregory XIII.  It may mean that the next calendar after the Gregorian calendar will be the Aristean calendar.

Was Jesus crucified on a Wednesday?

WP 090

WAS JESUS CRUCIFIED ON A WEDNESDAY?©

ARISTEO CANLAS FERNANDO
Peace Crusader and Echo of the Holy Spirit

 

Some people claim that Jesus was crucified on Wednesday.  Let us anaylze if this is true.  Let us list down the criteria we will use based on the Holy Bible (1-4) and on tradition which are logical (5-7):
1.  Day after crucifixion was a high day and a Sabbath (John 19:31).
2.  Jesus was in the tomb for three days and three nights (Matthew 12:39-41).
3.  The tomb was discovered empty on the first day of the week (Matthew 28:1; Mark 16:2; Luke 24:1; John 20:1).
4.  Mary Magdalene et al. bought sweet spices for the anointing of Jesus after a Sabbath (Mark 16:1).
5.  Shops were closed on a Sabbath day.
6.  On the day before a Sabbath called Preparation Day, shops were open only in the morning.  In the afternoon, the Jews prepare for the Sabbath that would start when the sun has set.
7.  In winter, shops were open from sunrise to sunset.  However, in summer when it is hot in the afternoon, shops were open from sunrise to noon, and from about 3 to 4pm until about 30 minutes to one hour after the sun has set.

Presently, the crucifixion of Jesus Christ is observed on a Friday, called Good Friday, and His tomb was found empty on Sunday morning, called Easter.  This is not correct based on an analysis at http://aristean.org/wp091.htm titled “Was Jesus crucified on a Friday?”

A Jewish day starts at sunset and ends at sunset the next day.

If Jesus was crucified on a Wednesday, the first night and first day that Jesus was in the tomb would be Thursday; second night and second day would be Friday, and third night and third day would be Saturday.  The fourth day when the tomb was discovered empty would be Sunday.

When Jesus was crucified, it was Preparation Day for next day’s high Sabbath Day (criterion 1).  The next day was a Sabbath Day, a high day, and the shops were closed.  If Jesus was crucified on Nisan 14, was Nisan 15 a Thursday?  Nisan 15 was supposed to be the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread which is a high day.  In what years was Nisan 15 a Thursday?  Let us see what Nisan 15 was from AD 30 to AD 36 using the calendar converter at http://www.hebrewcalendar.net/htdocs/main.en.html .  Nisan 15, 3790 AM is equal to April 3, 30 AD which was a Thursday; Nisan 15, 3791 AM, March 24, 31 AD, Tuesday; Nisan 15, 3792 AM, April 12, 32 AD, Tuesday; Nisan 15, 3793 AM, April 1, 33 AD, Saturday; Nisan 15, 3795 AM, March 20, 34 AD, Tuesday; Nisan 15, 3795 AM, April 9, 35 AD, Tuesday; Nisan 15, 3796 AM, March 28, 36 AD, Saturday.  The year when Nisan 15 was Thursday was on 30 AD.  So was Jesus crucified on Nisan 14, 3790 AM orApril 3, 30 AD?  So far, so good.  We will see if other criteria are met.

BTW, AM is the Latin abbreviation for anno mundi or in the year of the world, in the Jewish calendar.  AD is the Latin abbreviation for anno Domini or in the year of our Lord, in the proleptic Gregorian calendar.

If Jesus was crucified on a Wednesday, the shops were open in the morning only of the second day (Friday) in preparation for next day’s regular weekly Saturday Sabbath.  Mary Magdalene et al. could have bought the sweet spices on Friday morning when the shops had opened.  After buying the sweet spices, they could have proceeded to the tomb to anoint Jesus.  Why then did the disciples of Jesus had to wait until Sunday, the fourth day, to go very early to the tomb?  As Martha, the sister of Lazarus, told Jesus when He asked to take away the stone covering the grave of his brother in John 11:39, “Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.” 

But this going to the tomb is only the second day.  Criterion 2 says that Jesus was in the tomb for three days and three nights.  Could they have discovered that Jesus was still there?  Is Friday the first day of the week?  Based on these,  Jesus could not had been crucified on a Wednesday.

Was Jesus crucified on a Friday?

WP 091

WAS JESUS CRUCIFIED ON A FRIDAY?©

ARISTEO CANLAS FERNANDO
Peace Crusader and Echo of the Holy Spirit

 

Presently, the crucifixion of Jesus Christ is observed on a Friday, called Good Friday, and His tomb was found empty on Sunday morning, called Easter.  Are these correct?

To check whether Jesus was crucified on a Friday or not, let us list down the criteria we will use based on the Holy Bible (1-4) and on tradition which are logical (5-7):
1.  Day after crucifixion was a high day and a Sabbath (John 19:31).
2.  Jesus was in the tomb for three days and three nights (Matthew 12:39-41).
3.  The tomb was discovered empty on the first day of the week (Matthew 28:1; Mark 16:2; Luke 24:1; John 20:1).
4.  Mary Magdalene et al. bought sweet spices for the anointing of Jesus after a Sabbath (Mark 16:1).
5.  Shops were closed on a Sabbath day.
6.  On the day before a Sabbath called Preparation Day, shops were open only in the morning.  In the afternoon, the Jews prepare for the Sabbath that would start when the sun has set.
7.  In winter, shops were open from sunrise to sunset.  However, in summer when it is hot in the afternoon, shops were open from sunrise to noon, and from about 3 to 4pm until about 30 minutes to one hour after the sun has set.

A Jewish day starts at sunset and ends at sunset the next day.

If Jesus was crucified on a Friday, the first night and first day that Jesus was in the tomb would be Saturday; second night and second day would be Sunday, and third night and third day would be Monday.  But a Friday crucifixion and Sunday discovery of empty tomb would only be two nights and one day (Saturday night and Saturday day, and Sunday night).  A Friday crucifixion already fails based on criterion 2.

If Jesus was crucified on a Friday, it was Preparation Day for next day Sabbath Day.  The next day was the regular weekly Saturday Sabbath Day, and the shops were closed.  But was this Sabbath a high day?  If Jesus was crucified on Nisan 14, was Nisan 15 a Saturday?  Nisan 15 was supposed to be the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread which is a high day.  What year was Nisan 15?  Let us see what Nisan 15 was from AD 30 to AD 36 using the calendar converter at http://www.hebrewcalendar.net/htdocs/main.en.html .  Nisan 15, 3790 AM is equal to April 3, 30 AD which was a Thursday; Nisan 15, 3791 AM, March 24, 31 AD, Tuesday; Nisan 15, 3792 AM, April 12, 32 AD, Tuesday; Nisan 15, 3793 AM, April 1, 33 AD, Saturday; Nisan 15, 3795 AM, March 20, 34 AD, Tuesday; Nisan 15, 3795 AM, April 9, 35 AD, Tuesday; Nisan 15, 3796 AM, March 28, 36 AD, Saturday.  The years when Nisan 15 was Saturday were on 33 AD and 36 AD.  AM is the Latin abbreviation for anno mundi or in the year of the world, in the Jewish calendar.  AD is the Latin abbreviation for anno Domini or in the year of our Lord, in the proleptic Gregorian calendar.

If Jesus was crucified on a Friday, the fourth day when the tomb was discovered empty would be Tuesday.  Is Tuesday the first day of the week?  No, it is neither in the Jewish calendar nor in the proleptic Gregorian calendar.  Hence, based on criterion 3, a Friday crucifixion fails.

If Jesus was crucified on a Friday, the shops were open on the second day (Sunday) and third day (Monday).  Criterion 4 is met because Sunday is after the Sabbath and is the first day of the week in the Jewish calendar and Mary Magdalene et al. could have bought the sweet spices.  After buying the sweet spices, they could have proceeded to the tomb to anoint Jesus.  Why then did the disciples of Jesus had to wait until Tuesday, the fourth day, to go very early to the tomb?  As Martha, the sister of Lazarus, told Jesus when He asked to take away the stone covering the grave of his brother in John 11:39, “Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.”  Since Sunday is just the second day, this fails based on criterion 2.

The third day, Monday, fails because Sunday was not a Sabbath Day based on criterion 4.  Another is that Monday is not the first day of the week to the Jews (criterion 3).

The verdict:  the argument that Jesus was crucified on a Friday fails.

Seven churches in Revelation

WP 088

Seven churches in Revelation
ARISTEO CANLAS FERNANDO
Peace Crusader and Echo of the Holy Spirit

God addressed the seven angels of the seven churches in Revelation chapters 2 and 3.  The seven churches are in Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea.  All these churches are in Asia (Revelation 1:4).  Each church is represented by an angel.  That church is us, the people.

At the end of God’s message to each angel, He said: “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.” (Revelation 1:7a, 11a, 17a, 29; 2:6, 13, 22) 

Church

Verses in Revelation

Description of God, the sender of the message

Comment of God about the church beginning with ‘I know thy works’ 

God’s against
(things God is against the church)

God’s for
(things God is for the church)

Reward of God for faithfulness to him who overcomes the burden or who heeds God’s advice

Ephesus Revelation 2:1-7 He holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks I know thy works, and thy labor, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: and hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake hast labored, and hast not fainted. Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.  Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
Smyrna Revelation 2:8-11 The first and the last, which was dead, and is alive I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.  Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.     He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.
Pergamos Revelation 2:12-17 He which hath the sharp sword with two edges I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.

 

But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.  Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
Thyatira Revelation 2:18-29 The Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.  And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.

Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.

And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

 

But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.  But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
Sardis Revelation 3:1-6 He that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.
Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.
Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent.  If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
Philadelphia Revelation 3:7-13 He that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.  Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
Laodicea Revelation 3:14-22 The Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.  Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked;

I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in  the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

 

God does not have anything for or against the church of Smyrna.  The reward from God is exemption from the second death. 

Bear the sufferings we encounter in this world and heed His advice.  Jesus Christ showed us how to bear sufferings.  He suffered first.

WHY JESUS SAID, TOUCH ME NOT©

WP 087

WHY JESUS SAID, TOUCH ME NOT©

ARISTEO CANLAS FERNANDO
Peace Crusader and Echo of the Holy Spirit

 

Jesus, when He resurrected after the third day in the sepulcher, asked Mary Magdalene not to touch Him.  Why?

From the Holy Bible, King James Version, John 20:11-18,
11 But Mary [Magdalene] stood without at the sepulcher weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulcher,
12 And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.
13 And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou?  She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.
14 And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.
15 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou?  whom seekest thou?  She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
16 Jesus saith unto her, Mary.  She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.
18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her.

Why did Jesus say to Mary Magdalene, “Touch me not”?  Because no sinner can touch Him until He has ascended to the Father—to His Father and our Father, to His God and our God.

HOW THE HOLY SPIRIT TALKS TO PEOPLE©

WP 086

HOW THE HOLY SPIRIT TALKS TO PEOPLE©

ARISTEO CANLAS FERNANDO
Peace Crusader and Echo of the Holy Spirit

 

The Holy Spirit uses the body of Maria Liwayway Alvaran or Ka Apaz of Baliwag, Bulacan, Philippines to talk to people.  Since Ka Apaz is a Filipino, what the listeners hear is in the Filipino language.

Ka Apaz is about 73 years old and has been blind since age two. 

In my analysis, she is one of the two women mentioned in Matthew 24:41 and Luke 17:35.  The one taken up was the Blessed Virgin Mary and Ka Apaz is the one left.

I firmly believe that the Holy Spirit who we (plural) talk to, tape recorded, is the true Holy Spirit and is the spirit of Jesus Christ.

There are two ways by which the Holy Spirit appropriates the physical body of Ka Apaz.  The usual way is covering her whole body from head to toes with a white bed sheet.  The other way is without any covering when conducting a mass.  Seldom is mass a conducted though.  Usually, on special occasions only like August 17 which is the true death of Jesus.  

In the usual way, Ka Apaz is lying down on her bed.  The entry and exit of spirit are manifested by a whistling sound coming from the fontanel of the head and not from the mouth.  The sound may be a signal.  The cover acts as a transmitter so that people from other lands will also hear the messages of the Holy Spirit spoken in the Philippines – in their own languages.  Their mediums are receivers, like radios.  Can anyone do that? 

When conducting a mass, those who can hear the message of the Holy Spirit are only those who are present during the mass.  Ka Apaz stands in front of the altar.  When her spirit leaves her physical body, it collapses to the floor.  It rises immediately when the Holy Spirit enters it.  The body again collapses to the floor when the Holy Spirit leaves the body but rises soon after the spirit of Ka Apaz enters in.  There is no whistling sound that can be heard in this entry and exit of spirits.

TAKEN FROM THE JEWS©

WP 085

TAKEN FROM THE JEWS©

ARISTEO CANLAS FERNANDO
Peace Crusader and Echo of the Holy Spirit

 

This is what is stated in Matthew 21:42-44:
42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, the stone which the builder’s rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

Similar to these are in Mark 12:10-11 and Luke 20:17-18.

Jesus was referring to Psalm 118:22-23 in the scriptures:
22 The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.
23 This is the LORD’s doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.

Questions:
1. Who were the builders?
2. Who is the stone which the builders rejected?
3. Who is the stone which became the head of the corner?
4. Who is ‘you’ from whom the kingdom of God shall be taken?
5. To which nation was the kingdom of God given?

Answers:
1.  The Jews were the builders of the kingdom of God.  But Judaism, after more than 3000 years, exists mainly today in Israel (5-6 M) and the USA (5-6 M), not even one-sixth of one per cent of the world’s population (7 billion).
2.  Jesus Christ is the stone that the Jews rejected.  They even crucified Him.
3.  Jesus Christ is now the stone which became the head of the corner, the cornerstone.
4.  Jesus Christ said that the kingdom of God was taken from ‘you’, the Jews, who even mocked Him and killed Him.
5.  Jesus Christ said that the kingdom of God shall be given to a nation.  Which nation is it?  Four your information and believe it or not, it is the Philippines!

Here are the reasons why it is the Philippines:
1.  The Holy Spirit uses a blind woman, Maria Liwayway Alvaran or Ka Apaz, to speak to the listeners, tape recorded, in the Filipino language understood mainly by Filipinos.
2.  Jesus created Pontius Pilate when He was twelve years old who looked exactly like Him, believe it or not.  He used a kind of clay to make pots and jars called in Filipino as “pila”, thus the name Pilate was derived from “pila ito” or “this is pila”.  There is a town in Laguna, Philippines called Pila.
3.  The tree in Genesis that God forbids the fruit to be eaten is usually portrayed as an apple tree which in Filipino is called “mansanas”.  “Mansanas” means “mantsa na” or sin or stain.
4.  In September 2011, someone said that the word “Filipino” is foreboding—“pili na, pino pa” (“chosen, finely”).  Powder is fine, thus it says in Matthew 21:44, “it will grind him to powder.”
5.  The Filipinos are in different parts of the world, as immigrants or as Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs).  They can express the revelations of the Holy Spirit since they understand the language and can translate these to host countries.
