A unique way of looking at Biblical dates -
The Hebrew Scriptures have many dates. The People of Israel are required to pay attention to dates. What is the purpose of dates in The Scriptures? Specific dates like Passover, counting the Omer, The Festival of Weeks, Rosh HaShanah, Yom Kippur and The Festival of Booths require specific observances for The People of Israel.
What about other dates? Do we pay attention to other dates? Are other dates important? Every date is important. What I am trying to say is that each of us has a relationship with dates in The Holy Scriptures. For Example, Those born in the First month have relationship to Passover. Those born in the second month have a relationship to the Holy Census of The People of Israel in the Wilderness. The construction of The Holy Temple began in the second month.
If one knows the day of their birth they can search The Scriptures to learn what may have happened on that day. For example, I learned that '...the first day of the second month, in the second year after [The People of Israel] came out from the land of Egypt...' The Lord Instructed Moses to take a census of all the congregation of the people of Israel. This day was the 31st day of the year.
The specific day of the year, one is born is their Gematria day number. For example, אל El means 'to' or 'unto'. The Gematria of El is 31. El is also a Holy Name of God meaning 'Strength' and 'Power.' The first occurrence of a Word with the Gematria 31 is in Genesis 1.3. ויהי Vah Yih Hee means 'was'. God Said, 'Let there be Light and there WAS Light.'
Vah Yih Hee
ו6 י10 ה5 י10 = 31
The 31st Word in The Holy Scriptures is האור Ha Ohr, Meaning 'The Light'. The 31st Letter in The Holy Scriptures is The Letter א Aleph. The א Aleph is the first Letter of The Aleph Bet, i.e. The Hebrew Alphabet. The 31st Verse in The Holy Scriptures is Genesis 1.31 'And He, God Saw everything from Aleph to Tav that He Had Made, and, behold, it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning, the sixth day.'
