This is a common misconception and one not to lay at the feet of the objector. The Lunar Sabbath detractors, if
nothing else, are world class at answering the matter before they hear it (Proverbs 18:13). Here they are simply
reacting as they have been programmed to respond.
We have ALL been indoctrinated with the Gregorian calendar. And since 1582, it has been the only calendar any of
us knows, in use for multiple generations. That does not make it RIGHT.
"A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong gives it the superficial appearance of being right." Thomas Paine.
Lunar Sabbath detractors assume that the papacy somehow has taken control of Yah's calendar, when the reality of
it is that the Creation Calendar has been chugging along just fine since Creation. The truth of the matter is that the
papacy has taken control of the minds of Yah's people. Most satyrday sabbatarians recognize the papacy (Rome)
as the 4th beast of Daniel's vision. That power would THINK to change times and laws, Daniel 7:25. No man or
empire can actually CHANGE something established by YHVH. (Psalm 119:89, Isaiah 40:8, Ecclesiastes 3:14.)
The Lunar Sabbath and lunar weeks have not been taken over by the papacy. The papacy adopted the pagan
seven day planetary week (that has been around since Nimrod), and all the world wanders after the beast. Lunar
Sabbatarians hold that the true Sabbath was never (ever) found using the pagan planetary week, regardless of
which power enforces it.
The Creation Calendar is there in the heavens for anyone who will to observe, to obey and to cherish.
In truth, the Sabbath has been lost, but there has been no corporate takeover of the true calendar of Yah. In
Lamentations 2:6, YHVH reveals that HE took the Sabbath from Israel's memory due to their apostasy. When
YHVH causes you to forget, you will have forgotten it indeed. During that time of our forgetfulness, we wandered.
The only calendar that the Papacy has control of is the calendar of men. In 153 B.C., Rome changed the beginning
of the Roman calendar from march to january. The Father's calendar still begins in Spring (Exodus 12); Rome
created a calendar that began in the dead of winter. In 46 B.C., Julius Caesar acting upon the suggestion of Greek
astronomer, Sosigenes, ordered Rome to cease observing the months by the moon. (Month means moonth). The
Creator's months all begin with a new moon day; Rome amended her calendar to disregard the new moon when
calculating the months. In 321 A.D., Constantine adopted the pagan seven day planetary week (dedicated to a
pantheon of gods in the heavens) to replace the then authorized 8 day market week. The Father's week days had
no names, they had numbers, other than the Sabbath which simply means rest, and does not run concurrently with
the pagan planetary week. The pagan week is neither solar nor lunar. The Father's week is lunar.
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst
weaken the nations!
For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of Elohim:
I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the
clouds; I will be like the Most High. Isaiah 14:12-14
The word congregation here is the Hebrew word Mo’edim, which means “appointed times”. A mountain in Scripture
is a controlling power or authoritarian presence. What Satan is proclaiming here is that he will sit on the mount of
the appointed times. He is saying that he will control the calendar, and the appointed times. And indeed he does.
...and all the world wondered (wandered) after the beast (Revelation 13:3), the beast who would THINK to change
times and laws (Daniel 7:25). The Father's calendar, established in the heavens at Creation, is still a faithful
witness (Psalm 89:37) in the heavens, waiting to be discovered by a new generation of believers. And it must
because the breach will be repaired, the old waste places will be restored (Isaiah 58:12).
If it was the truth yesterday (or 6000 years ago), it is the truth today.
3. The Lunar Sabbath theory erroneously holds that the week has been lost and taken over
by the papacy.
