The Morning Star and the Mayan calendar.
Previously we discussed the Mayan calendar briefly. There are some important points to note regarding that system. It was not perfected until after the text in the Dresden Codex of ca. 934 CE.
The YDNA system of the Maya is of the Q derivatives that occurred when the P Haplogroup split into the R and Q sub-groups. In other words, biblically speaking the Amerindians are sons of Japheth and close relatives of the Slavs and Europeans (see the paper Genetic Origin of the Nations (No. 265)). The calendar is thus a post-flood derivation and, given the degree of drift in the calendar of the Dresden Codex, perhaps a not too ancient variation.
It refers back to a system that places its mythological beginnings in the year 3114 BCE, forty years before the death of Adam. It is a complex system that includes the determinations of the Rising of Venus as Morning Star and calculates the time of the current creation age or One Great Year cycle, comprised of 13 Baktuns, which approximate 5125 solar years.
This number of 5125 years is alleged to relate to the Great Cycle that is the progression of the equinoxes. Thus there are alleged to be five ages or aeons of the Great Cycle each of 13 Baktuns. That is incorrect. The five divisions of 13 Baktuns make 25,625 solar years. The twelve Zodiacal divisions do not equate with the five divisions of the Baktuns of the Maya. There is a significant difference in the totals of the two Great Cycles of 295 solar years. The figures are similar and may represent another symbolic relationship deriving from an early source.
The ‘progression of the equinoxes’ is a gradual backward movement taking 2,160 years to pass through one zodiacal constellation, or 25,920 years to pass through the entire zodiac. There is no sudden and dramatic change. The concept of a ‘Great Year’ in Greek thought can be traced back to Heraclitus but the intent is unclear. “Plato seems to allude to a ‘Great Year’ as the time it takes for the stars to return to their starting point in the cosmos (Ti. 39d) and appears to give a mathematical value for this (Rep.546b-c).  This would indicate Plato’s awareness of some sort of celestial pattern over a great period of time and Celsus seems to be aware of two movements of the cosmos” (Simon Mahoney, An Interpretation of Mithraic Remains; http://pages.britishlibrary.net/simon.mahony/ma-mith.html)
The entire Mayan system is based on the number of the Heavenly Council of the Host. The base number is 72 or the Hebdomekonta [duo] of Luke 10:1 and 17. It reflects the number of the Sanhedrin. The Sanhedrin is itself a reflection of the Heavenly Council, as we know from the Bible.
In 3114 BCE Adam was alive. The following patriarchs were also alive: Seth (b. 3874 d. 2964); Enosh (b. 3769 d. 2864); Kenan (b. 3679 d. 2768); Mahalael (b. 3609 d. 2714); Jared (b. 3544 d. 2582); Enoch (b. 3382 t. 3017); Methusaleh (b. 3317 d. 2348); Lamech (b. 3130 d. 2353). Jared was Enoch’s father. Noah was not born until 2948 BCE. Thus in the year 3114 all the patriarchs were alive and present save for Noah. The fall of the Host was traditionally associated with the rule of Jared and that in his days the Host descended and fornicated with women. His father Mahalael allegedly named him Jared in prophecy. The name Jared (SHD 3382) means descent and refers to the descent of the Host in his days. He was born in 3544 and was 430 years old in 3114 BCE. The descent and interbreeding with the Host occurred over this period of time. Enoch testified against the Host and was taken by God as a reward for his faithfulness in 3017. The text in 1Enoch attributes prophecy concerning the flood to Enoch at the birth of Noah but that is impossible as Enoch was taken 69 years before the birth of Noah (cf. 1Enoch 106:12-13; Jubilees 4:15, 22). The Book of Jubilees holds that Enoch was taken so that he may bear witness against the misdeeds of the generations at the Day of Judgment. He will offer incense on Mt Qatar, which is the Mountain of the East among the four sacred mountains (Eden, The Mount of the East (Qatar), Sinai and Zion), for the sanctification of the nations for the new creation in the Last Days (Jub. 4:24-26). It may be that 3114 is associated with this event and the confinement of the Host to Tartarus. The time-frame is too spread out to be more definitive. However, the date in 3113 is seventy years before the birth of Noah and that base number (plus two = 72) is associated with the Heavenly Host and the nations that they were given to rule in years to come. Thus we appear to be speaking of the rule of the creation from this date. It is therefore the beginning of the age of Satan as Morning Star over a Fallen Host.
The Rising of Venus is allocated to 1 Ahau. The date means the 1st of the Lord. Ahau is linguistically related to Yaho and may be a reference to the elohim of the Host.
The system is based on a twenty-day month, which has the name uinal. The word uinal means person or man. The number 20 is the number of biblical years required before a person is considered fully-grown. There are 18 uinals to the Tun or year of 360 days. The prophetic year is thus stylised to enable man to symbolically develop. The five days are adjusted as explained in the work at http://www.alignment2012.com/fap4.html.
The years are arranged so as to equal 100 cycles of 72 days, or 360 uinals (a year of months), that is 7200 days, which is termed a Katun. 20 Katuns (years of months) equal 144000 days, which is termed a Baktun.
A Bible student can thus see that the entire system is directed at the rule of the Morning Star under the sun system. It symbolises the rule of the Morning Star over this age. The current Morning Star ruling over this age is Satan. The New Morning Star is Christ and his elect are the 144,000 under the Apostles. The calendar seems to be aimed at returning men as gods at the end of the age. There is no lunar basis.
The Venus rounds of the Calendar plot the rise of the Morning Star and predict its occurrence.
The Mayan calendar thus represents the sun system under Satan coming to a close in this age of the creation, as the end of the Great Year in 2012. The end date in 2012 is designated as 220.127.116.11.0 meaning that 13 Baktuns have passed, being 1,872,000 days.
The Tzolkin count is alleged to have started on the date 4 Ahau and will thus end on 4 Ahau; however, there is much argument now that the start was and the end should be on 13 Ahau.
The next Great Year will be under and symbolised by the New Morning Star.
