Show me the text in Scripture that says the Sabbath is the seventh day of an unbroken chain of seven day weeks
that goes back to creation. Show me the passage in Scripture that says that Satyrday is the Sabbath.
Scripture says that the Sabbath is the seventh day, but it does not say that it is part of an unbroken chain that goes
back to Creation. The new moon days interrupt the cycle of weeks every month, just as the Jubilee cycle interrupts
the cycle of Land Sabbaths, see Objection #7 (My point, near the bottom).
Can new moon fall on a work day or Sabbath? The new moon days never fall during the common week; they are a
third category of day, which means it interrupts the week. Ezekiel 46:1 says that the gate to the temple is shut on
all six working days, but open on the Sabbath and new moon. When new moon occurs on a wednesday, if the
tabernacle were still here ask the objector you are dealing with, “Would the gate have been open or shut?” If they
say open because it is new moon day, you respond that wednesday is a work day, it must be shut. If they agreed,
“Of course wednesday is a work day, it must be shut,” then you reply, “But friend, it is new moon, it must be open.”
The Nay-sayers have no correct answer because they are applying a pagan/papal/Roman/solar-only/man-made
calendar to this Scriptural calendar event. Isaiah 66:23, II Kings 4:18-23, Amos 8:5 are three more witnesses that
the new moon cannot fall on one of the six work days. New moon, work day, Sabbath. Looks like this:
Also, Scripture never calls the Sabbath the memorial of Creation. Psalm 111:4 does say that Yah made a memorial
for His created works but it does not say that this was the 7th day Sabbath.
The only days specifically mentioned as having some memorial connected to them are, interestingly enough, all
annual feast days: Passover => Exodus 12:14, Day of Atonement (by implication) => Exodus 30:16, Feast of
Trumpets => Leviticus 23:24, and New moons and feasts collectively => Numbers 10:10.
The Sabbath is a sign or seal, Exodus 31:13, Ezekiel 20:12 and 20:20. Sign - Strong’s, Hebrew #226 (ôwth),
which means signal, flag, beacon, monument, omen, prodigy, evidence, mark, miracle, ensign, or token.
Interestingly, in all 3 verses above, the word used is Sabbaths, not Sabbath. For example:
And I gave them my statutes, and showed them my judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them.
Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am YHVH
that sanctify them. Ezekiel 20:11-12 (verses 19-20 say the same.)
So what is YHVH’s Memorial? By this time, you should not be surprised by the answer:
And Moses said unto the Almighty, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The
Mighty One of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is His name? what shall I say
And the Almighty said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and He said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I
AM hath sent me unto you.
And the Almighty said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, YEHOVAH the Elohim
of your fathers, the Mighty One of Abraham, the Mighty One of Isaac, and the Mighty One of Jacob, hath sent me
unto you: this is My name for ever, and this is My memorial unto all generations. Exodus 3:13-15
Thy name, O YHVH, endureth for ever; and thy memorial, O YHVH, throughout all generations. Psalm 135:13
Note: Please understand that in every place in Scripture where LORD or GOD is written in all capital letters there
has been a theft. It should have been YHVH. The translators have stolen His Name.
Even YHVH the Mighty One of hosts; Yehovah is His memorial. Hosea 12:5
In all three of these passages the word Memorial is Strong’s, Hebrew #2143 (Zêker), which means a memento,
commemoration, memorial, memory, remembrance, or scent. Scent! More memories are triggered by scent than
any other sensory receptor. Fascinating!
A sign shows an observer who you are. Example: a boy wears a bright orange belt and stands on a corner near a
school. He is A--not very fashion conscious. B--selling Girl Scout cookies. Or C--a crossing guard. By being
Torah observant Sabbath keepers, we show the world that we are children of Yah. We bear His sign or seal.
A memorial reminds the observer of, or helps us remember who someone else is/was. Example: When you go to the
Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., are you reminded of Abraham, the father of many nations? How about
Martha Stewart? No? Maybe Attila the Hun? <grin> You get the idea. YHVH’s memorial is not “the LORD.” It is
I agree that the Sabbath is also a memorial of Creation. The 4th commandment listed in Exodus 20:8-11 proves
this, but the 4th commandment listed in Deuteronomy 5:12-15 proves that the Sabbath is ALSO linked to the
exodus from Egypt. Israel was liberated on Abib 15, the Sabbath.
By keeping YHVH’s Sabbaths, which are lunar, both YHVH and the world recognize us as His children. But by
remembering the Name Yehovah, we memorialize Him as our Sovereign Creator.
8. Keeping the Lunar Sabbath causes one to break the great Seventh-day Sabbath, the
memorial of creation, which goes back in unbroken chain to that very first Creation
Seventh-day Sabbath of Genesis 2.
