New moon (the first day of each month) is a day not counted against the work week, so it cannot be numbered in the
first week, so the Sabbaths cannot be on the 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th days of the month. If the Sabbaths were on
these days, then new moon would be a week day, like this...
Ezekiel 46:1 prohibits new moon from being a part of the work week. The gate is closed all SIX work days, open on
Sabbaths and new moon. So the Creation Calendar looks like this...
Amos 8:5, Isaiah 66:23 and II Kings 4:23 also prove that the days of set-apart convocation (Sabbaths and new
moon days) belong in a separate category, apart from the six common work days. So there are three different types
of day be marked off with 3 different phases of the moon (AND have the Sabbaths announced by the quarter
phases) is for the dark phase to be new moon. The illuminated phase to be for the work week, of which the quarter
phases announce the Sabbaths.
Count the month this way, and the Sabbaths will always be on the 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th days of the month.
Interestingly, these are the only dates that any weekly Sabbaths fall on in Scripture.
Yah’s Creation week began the first month of earth’s history, and began with a new moon day, described in
Genesis 1:1-2. Israel did not recognize New Moon day as a day of the week. If last month began with a new moon
and the second month after creation began with a new moon, what do you think the FIRST month of the first year of
earth’s history began with? New Moon. THAT unnamed, unnumbered segment of time was dark, and it is not part of
the SIX day work week. In this Creation model, the Sabbath was indeed the seventh day of the week (it always has
been), but it was the EIGHTH day of the first month. It has always been THAT too, as well as the 15th, 22nd and
29th days of the lunar cycle. Interestingly enough, because I got off my butt and went outside and looked, I
discovered that the first quarter moon is seen directly overhead at sunset before the morning of the 8th, announcing
the 8th as the Sabbath. I discovered that the full moon later rose in the east at or after sunset before the morning of
the 15th announcing the 15th as the Sabbath. I saw that I was onto something so I looked at sunset before the
morning of the 22nd and saw nothing. Hmm. What happened? The moon is moving at right angles to the earth
approximately every 7.3 days (in relation to the sun), and 90 degrees from the full moon at sunset is DAWN. So, I
went outside the MORNING of the 22nd and lo and behold, there was the third quarter moon directly overhead,
announcing the 22nd day as the third weekly Sabbath. Using this idea, I went out the morning of the 29th day of the
lunar month and discovered that at Dawn, I could see the last sliver in the east, announcing the 29th as the
Sabbath. If I saw the sliver that morning, there followed two days of new moon celebration (two dark days). If the
crescent was not seen, it was still the Sabbath, but there followed only ONE day of new moon (one dark day).
Genesis 1:1-2 proves that the new moon days are dark days, meaning there is no visible moon. This was the first
day (a segment of time that occurred before the first work week) of the first month of earth's history, and it was
dark. If all the months of earth's history have begun with new moon, then the first one did too. And as pointed out,
the first new moon day was dark.
Isn’t it amazing how all nature sings the wonder and majesty of Yah?
In Scripture, the months ALL used to be 30 days in length, for a total of a 360 lunar/solar year. The luni-solar year
was originally 360 days long. Twelve 30 day months = 360 day year. Here is the evidence for this. Genesis 7:11
says that the flood began on the 17th day of the second month. Genesis 8:4 says the water prevailed upon the
face of the earth until the 17th day of the seventh month. That is 5 months. Genesis 7:24 and 8:3 say that the
water prevailed upon the earth for 150 days. 150 divided by 5 = 30. So there were 5 consecutive 30 day months in
Scripture, which is not possible with the current relationship between the earth and moon. So, we have solid
Scriptural proof that the months were all originally 30 days in length. The lunar cycle is now 29.5 days rather than
30 day in length. Which equates to some months being 29 days long, some being 30 days long. There are 4 seven
day weeks in each month, which accounts for only 28 of 29 or 30 days. These other days are new moon days.
The new moon days (or days of new moon celebration) are day one (the first day of the new month), but includes
day 30 as it shares the same appearance of no visible moon during this segment of time. Neither of them are
included in the work week.
There are three unique phases of the moon, the dark phase, and the illuminated phases, and the 4 quarter phases
which are seen at the END of the weeks. There are three distinct categories of day, new moon days, work days
and Sabbaths. There are 2 dark days and 28 days showing an illuminated moon in each whole (30 day) month.
There are 4 seven day weeks each month for a total of 28 days. If the illuminated days of the lunar cycle (28 days)
announce the days of the four work weeks (28 days), then the quarter phases will announce all 4 Sabbaths, that
leaves the 1-2 dark days after the last Sabbath each month as new moon days. It is simple math and simple
observation and applied logic.
3. New moon days are a third category of day in Scripture that do not count as week days.
