Exodus 12, 16 and 19 reveal that the Sabbaths fell on the 15th of the month for three consecutive months.  

Exodus 12 reveals that Israel was released from bondage on Abib 15, the 15th day of the first month.  It is not
called a Sabbath in
Exodus 12, but later Scripture does reveal the nature of this day.  Leviticus 23:4-8 shows us
that Passover (Abib 14) is preparation day for Abib 15, the Sabbath of Unleavened Bread.  Some say that Abib 21 is
also a Sabbath, but his is not the case.  The evidence is that the 15th of the first month is the weekly Sabbath;
Scripture is not saying that the 21st is an annual Sabbath at all.  Consider the following.

The first day of the feast and the “seventh day” [of the week in context] are one and the same.  The 21st is the 6th
day of the week and of course the 7th day of a seven day feast, but….

9          10        11        12        13        14        
15
16        17        18        19        20        21        22

…the “seventh day” spoken of in Exodus 13:6 is called a chag (Strong's H2282) which is used 62 times in Scripture
and is only used to refer to the pilgrimage feast days (found in
Exodus 23:14-17), in this case, Abib 15.  It is not
referring to the last day of the feast, rather the first.  This
chag can only be the 15th of Abib.  See also
Deuteronomy 5:12-15 and Leviticus 23:6-8.  

The Sabbath commandment in
Exodus 20 is linked to Creation week.  The 4th commandment listed in
Deuteronomy 5 is linked to the deliverance of Israel.  That date was the 15th of Abib.

I submit to you that this “seventh day” is Abib 15, and it is not only an annual Sabbath, but a weekly Sabbath as
well.  There are no back to back Sabbaths in Scripture.  The 15th is without question a Sabbath, meaning that the
22nd of the first month is also a Sabbath.  If the 21st is an annual Sabbath, there would be two Sabbaths back to
back, and there would be no preparation day for the second Sabbath of the two.  Common sense, right?


Exodus 16 is the first place where the word “Sabbath” is used in Scripture.  In the first verse, YHVH is speaking to
Moses and Aaron on the 15th day of the 2nd month and gives them what turns out to be a simple math equation.  
From day 15 add 6 days of manna = 21.  Next day (22nd) is the Sabbath.  

          1        1         1         1        1        2   
Sabbath











Israel was to collect one portion of manna from the 16th to the 20th and a double portion on the 21st because the
morrow was the Sabbath.  If the 22nd is a Sabbath, so is the 15th (as well as the 8th and the 29th.  The first day of
the month is new moon day, not a Sabbath.


Exodus 19:1 also proves that the children of Israel arrived at Sinai on the 16th day of the third month.  Please read
the context.  Moses indicates that the children of Israel rested at Rephidim the 15th of the third month.  The root
word for Rephidim means “rest” and this passage says that they arrived at the Wilderness of Sinai the “same day” of
this month that they left Egypt (two months earlier).  If you’ll remember, Israel got as far as Succoth the 15th, and
actually left Egypt the on the 16th.  
Numbers 33:3-6.  So Israel arrived at Sinai on the 16th and Moses was
immediately summoned up the mount.  YHVH told Moses to go back down the mountain and to tell the people to
consecrate themselves for on the third day of the week (the 18th) He would come down on the mount in a cloud,
Exodus 19:10-11.  The "third day" is qualified when the Father said, today, tomorrow and to be ready on the third
day.

If the 16th is the first day, then the 18th is the third day, meaning that they were “resting” in Rephidim on the 15th,
which is the weekly 7th day Sabbath.  

Looks like this:

1st        2nd        3rd        4th        5th        6th        7th

9           10           11         12          13          14         15                
16         17           18         19          20          21         
22

Amazing isn’t it?  There is always harmony in the truth.  
2.  For three consecutive months, the weekly Sabbath fell on the 15th day of the month.  
This cannot happen with the Gregorian calendar.
