Is adding a thirteenth month to a Scriptural Year (SCRIPTURAL)? Let’s start with the book in Scripture that deals more extensively with the Scriptural Calendar than any other book of Scripture. The Book of Hanok (Enoch) CHAPTER 72 2. And this is the first law of the luminaries (lights): the luminary the Sun has its rising in the eastern portals of the heaven, and its setting in the western portals of the heaven. 3. And I saw six portals in which the sun rises, and six portals in which the sun sets (thus 12 portals in total, (NOT 13) and the moon rises and sets in these portals, and the leaders of the stars and those whom they lead: six in the east and six in the west, and all following each other in accurately corresponding order: also many windows to the right and left of these portals. 7. And in that fourth portal from which the sun rises in the FIRST MONTH are twelve (12) (NOT 13) window openings . . . In Chapter 73 verse 11, we read about the FOUR LEADERS who divide the FOUR PARTS (seasons) of the year. We read about the TWELVE LEADERS (NOT 13) who divide the MONTHS. We read about the THREE HUNDRED and SIXTY (360), who are heads over thousands who divide the DAYS; and we read of the leaders of the FOUR INTERCALARY DAYS which divide the FOUR PARTS of the year. CHAPTER 74 17. And the year is accurately completed in conformity with their world-stations and the stations of the sun, which rise from the portals through which it (the sun) rises and goes down thirty (30) days (and ONLY 12 months as already determined in Chapter 72). CHAPTER 75 6. As for the twelve portals (NOT 13) in the heaven, at the ends of the earth, out of which go forth the sun, moon, and stars, and all the works of heaven in the east and in the west. The Twelve Windows and their Portals (NOT 13). CHAPTER 76 1. And at the ends of the earth I saw twelve portals (NOT 13) open to all the quarters (of the heaven), from which the winds go forth and blow over the earth. 2. Three of them are open on the face (i.e. the east) of the heavens, and three in the west, and three on the right (i.e. the south) of the heaven, and three on the left (i.e. the north). 14. And the twelve portals (NOT 13) of the four quarters of the heaven are completed, and all their laws and all their plagues and all their goodness have I shown to thee, my son Methuselah. CHAPTER 82 11. Their four leaders who divide the four parts of the year enter first; and after them the twelve leaders (NOT 13) of the orders who divide the months; and for the three hundred and sixty (days) there are heads over thousands who divide the days; and for the four intercalary days there are the leaders which divide the four parts of the year. ELohim’s Word affirms His Deity and His Character – thus, we should always TEST whether something aligns to WHO He is and WHAT He teaches through Scripture. Let’s look at the prophetic and symbolic significance of the numbers (12) and (13) from Scripture to CONFIRM whether the doctrine of the lunar year (where they add a thirteenth month to Scripture every approximately third year to ALIGN the luminaries) confirms the deity, character and attributes of The Almighty! Twelve (12) (yod-bet) Governmental Perfection/Authority (The Luminaries reflect the Governmental Perfection and Authority of the Almighty over His [own] creation) . . . To write twelve in Hebrew, we write yod-bet. These signify the hand (outworking) of the household in harmony, under divine authority. Twelve is the number of governmental perfection and divine authority. It follows 11, which is the disorder preceding this perfection.  There were 12 sons of Ya'aqob in the First Covenant  Messiah chose 12 Taught Ones (Disciples) in the Renewed Covenant  There are 12 Tribes of Yisra’el  Solomon had 12 governors, or deputies, ruling with responsibility in his household (1 Kin 4:7).  We also read about the significance of the number twelve (12) in YAHUAH’s set-apart Dwelling Place . . . Num 7:84 This was the dedication of the altar from the leaders of Yisra’ĕl, when it was anointed: twelve silver dishes, twelve silver bowls, twelve gold ladles. Num 7:87 All the cattle for the burnt offering were twelve young bulls, the rams twelve, the male lambs a year old twelve, with their grain offering, and the male goats as a sin offering twelve.  We read about the significance of the number 12 in the Tent of Meeting as well . . . Num 17:2, 4 “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, and take from them a rod from each father’s house, all their leaders according to their fathers’ houses, twelve rods. Write each one’s name on his rod”. You shall then place them in the Tent of Meeting before the Witness, where I meet with you.  Again we see the significance of 12 in Scripture when YAHUAH commanded the children of Yisra’el to take vengeance o the i yanites. Num 31:4-5 “Send a thousand from each tribe of all the tribes of Yisra’ĕl for the campaign.” So there were supplied from the tribes of Yisra’ĕl one thousand from each tribe, twelve thousand armed ones for the campaign.  12 men were chosen to spy-out the Promised Land . . . Deu 1:23 “And the matter was good in my eyes, so I took twelve of your men, one man from each tribe”.  We read about the significance of the 12 stones in the Book of Yahusha (Joshua) . . . Jos 4:7-8a “Then you shall answer them that the waters of the Yardĕn were cut off before the ark of the covenant of YAHUAH. When it passed over the Yardĕn, the waters of the Yardĕn were cut off. And these stones shall be for a remembrance to the childre of Yisra’ĕl forever.” And the children of Yisra’ĕl did so, as Yahusha commanded, and took up twelve stones from the midst of the Yardĕn.  We read about the end of the 12 months (signifying one period of a year) in the prophetic Book of Dani’el, chapter 4 verse 29!  In Eze 43, we read about the measurements of the altar in cubits! Eze 43:16 “And the altar hearth is twelve cubits long, and twelve wide, square at its four corners”.  In Jer 52, we read about the significance of the number 12 in the columns that were in the house of YAHUAH . . . Jer 52:20 The two columns, one Sea, the twelve bronze bulls which were under it, and the stands, which Sovereign Shelomoh had made for the House of YAHUAH. Jer 52:21 As for the columns, the height of one column was eighteen cubits, and its circumference was twelve cubits . . .  In Est 2, we read about the significance of the number 12 in preparation of women . . . Est 2:12 ow when the turn of each oung woman came to go in to Sovereign A ashwĕrosh after she had completed twelve months according to the regulations for the women – for the days of their preparation were completed as follows: six months with oil of myrrh, and six months with perfumes and with the preparations of women.  There are 12 foundations in the New Yerushalayim (Rev 21:14). It also has 12 gates and 12 messengers at the gates (Rev 21:12). There are 12 pearls at the gates (Rev 21:21). The wall is 144 cubits high (Rev 21:17), which is 12 x 12. All of this is to portray the concept of divine government and order.  Though all priests and kings were anointed, the First Covenant specifically records 12 anointed men. The first five are priests; the last seven are kings . . . 1. Aharon (Lev 8:12) 2. Nadab (Lev 8:30; 10:1) 3. Abihu (Lev 8:30; 10:1) 4. El’azar (Lev 10:12) 5. Ithamar (Lev 10:12) 6. Shemu’el (1 Sam 10:1); the sixth being ma ’s choice (1 Sam 8:18) 7. Dawid (1 Sam 16:13); the seventh being YHUH’s choice (1 Sam 13:14) 8. Abshalom (2 Sam 19:10) 9. Shelomoh (1 Kin 1:39) 10. Yehu (2 Kin 9:6) 11. Yoash (2 Kin 11:12) 12. Yehoahaz (2 Kin 23:30)  Yahusha Messiah spoke of 12 thrones on which the 12 emissaries would sit to judge the 12 tribes of Yisrael (Mat 19:28).  Yahusha said that there were 12 hours in the day (Joh 11:9)!  Yahusha referred to the twelve legions of Messengers in Mat 26:53!  In Mat 19:28, we read what Yahusha said to the ones following Him in the REBIRTH – they shall sit on 12 thrones, judging the 12 tribes of Yisra’el!  The twelfth time Yahusha is mentioned is in Mat 4:10, where He establishes the truth of divine government: Mat 4:10 Then Yahusha said to him, “Go, Satan! For it has been written, ‘You shall worship HWHY your ELohim, and Him alone ou shall serve.’” What is the significance of the number Thirteen (yod-gimel)? Rebellion, Depravity To write thirteen in Hebrew, we write yud-gimel. These signify the hand (outworking) of pride (lifting up in pride or rebuking the proud). It can also mean lifting up a reward (in context of how the letter is used)! The number thirteen speaks of rebellion, pride and depravity. The first occurrence of the number 13 in Scripture is found in Gen 14:4, where it signifies a time of rebellion . . . Gen 14:4 Twelve ears the served e orlaʽomer, and in the thirteenth year they rebelled. Est 3:13 And the letters were sent by the runners into all the sovereign’s provinces, to cut off, to slay, and to destroy all the Yeh im, both young and old, little children and women, in one day, on the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month of A ar, and to plunder their possessions. Jer 25:3 “From the thirteenth year of Yoshi ahu son of Amon, sovereign of Yehu ah, even to this day, this is the twenty-third year in which the word of HWHY has come to me. And I have spoken to you, rising early and speaking, but you have not listened (Rebellion)”. In love and with humility – after studying and testing all the evidence from Scripture in this study and allowing the HAKADOSH Ruach (Set-apart Spirit) of HWHY Yahuah (YHUH) to guide us, can we honestly say [without doubt] that adding a 13th month to a Scriptural year is Scriptural? In suggesting this might imply that the luminaries ELohim created are in rebellion to Him (if we consider the prophetic significance of the number 13)! May Father’s HAKADOSH Ruach guide us in all truth!
