Read the following examples,
and you will see that we have been following the
blind leaders in keeping the tradition of men by
observing the Sabbath from Friday evening to Saturday
following Scriptural examples of the weekly Sabbath,
which are always on the 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th
of each moon without exception, should convince
the honest truth-seeker that the moon is truly for
the Appointments of YHWH. When you understand the
word seasons in Gen. 1:14 means Appointments and
they (the Heavenly lights) shall be for signs (beacons)
and seasons (Appointments.) (Ps 104:19) He appointed
the moon for seasons (Appointments). In both of
these verses the word seasons means Appointments
just as the word Feast in Lev. 23:3 means Appointments
(see concordance) (“These are my Feasts.”)
and the first Feast is the weekly Sabbath. If the
weekly Sabbath is an Appointment and the moon is
for an Appointment (or Sabbath) then the Sabbath
must be kept by the moon. That should end the debate
for the honest hearted.
prove the New moon is not a workday look at Ezch.
46:1. “The gates to YHWH’s house are
to be shut the six workdays and open on the Sabbaths
and the day of the New moon.” (See also Amos
8:5) When locating the true Sabbath, which follows
the six workdays, we must remember the New moon
day is never counted as one of the six workdays
as the following example prove.
first pinpointed Sabbath is in Ex. 16:22,23 and
if you count backwards the second day of the moon;
is the first workday, which proves the New moon
was not counted as one of the six workdays, and
the Sabbaths are on the 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th
of the moon.
same thing again in the Crucifixion Week the Sabbath
is on the 15th. (John 19:31 and Luke 23:54-56) A
simple count backwards tells us that the first workday
is the second day of the moon and proves again,
the New Moon was not counted as one of the six workdays.
This also places the weekly Sabbaths on the 8th,
15th, 22nd, and 29th of the moon, and if our Savior
had not been killed on the 14th, He would have kept
the Sabbath on the 15th, as was His custom.
try to create a Weekly Sabbath on the 17th at the
time of Crucifixion Week and try to say the 15th
was a yearly Sabbath only, but if that were so,
the tenth day of that moon would have to be a Sabbath
also, but the Scriptures proves this to be false
in John 12:1. It says that it was six days before
Passover or the 15th. (John 19:14, Luke 22:1, Six
days before 15th would be on the 9th of the moon
and verse 12 says on the next day, the 10th, He
came to Jerusalem. Now, notice this is when the
Passover lamb was to be put up (He the Lamb) on
the 10th, a very busy day and definitely not a Sabbath;
therefore, the 17th was not a Sabbath either.
would have broken the Fathers law by riding the
ass and causing it to work, if the 10th were a Sabbath.
Also, they were cutting tree limbs, buying and selling
on that day. He entered the house of YHWH and healed
a man on the 10th and they said what a wonderful
work, instead of accusing Him of breaking the Sabbath.
all proves the 10th was not a Weekly Sabbath and
therefore the 17th could not have been a Sabbath
either. You can prove this in Luke 19:35-45. Matthew
21:2-15 tells how He came riding on an ass and how
He entered the Temple where they were buying and
selling — a very busy day each year for everybody.
It would be pure confusion to have a commanded no-workday
Sabbath to fall on a scheduled workday, or any scheduled
workday for that matter, like the fourteenth day
of the first moon when everybody was to kill and
prepare the Passover. It is a commanded workday,
and pure confusion to have a commanded no-workday
fall on a commanded workday.
place the New moon and Sabbaths are pinpointed is
John 9:14. To prove this compare the following verses.
John 7:2 tells the Feast of Tabernacles was at hand.
Verse 10 tells He went up to it. Verse 37 tells
us that on the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles,
which is the 21st (see Lev. 23:34-42, Numbers 25:12,
Deut. 16:13-15, Nehemiah 8:17 and Ez. 45:25) all
of these prove fact in seven day feast. John 8:1
tells that He went to the Mt. of Olives and verse
2 says that early in the morning He came again into
the temple and taught (on the 22nd Sabbath) verse
59 says He went out of the temple and passed by.
Chapter 9:1 tells of seeing the blind man. Verse
6 says that He made clay, and verse 14 says that
it was the Sabbath (22nd), which proves the 2nd
day of the moon was the first workday of the week
again. The New moon was not counted as one of the
six workdays and the weekly Sabbaths were on the
8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th of the moon, and our Savior
kept them on these days as was His Custom.
could we fail to see these Sabbaths are always on
these set days of the moon? And here again, our
Savior (the son of YHWH) was keeping the Heavenly
Sabbaths that were created in Heaven and not by
man’s calendar. The Sabbath was on the 22nd
when He kept it. Needless to say, the 29th was a
Sabbath, also. Won’t you follow His example?
was also using YHWH’s calendar after the Crucifixion
in Acts 20:17. He mentions the first day of the
week, which was on the second day of the moon. You
can verify this in Acts 20:5, 6, 7. They sailed
away from Philippi after the days of unleavened
bread (22nd) and came unto them in Troas in five
days (26th) where they abode seven days. The seventh
day of Paul’s stay, was the second day of
the moon and Paul calls the second day of the moon
the first day of the week and that puts the Sabbath
on the 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th of the moon, proving
the New moon was not counted as one of the six workdays.
Counting the 26th as the first day, the 27th as
the second, the 28th as the third, the 29th as the
fourth, the 30th as the fifth, the first or New
moon as the sixth day of the stay, and the second
day of the moon the seventh day of Paul’s
stay at Troas. The Scriptures calls this second
day of the moon the first day of the week, because
they only stayed seven days. And, the first day
of the week would be that seventh day they stayed
and the second day of the moon is the first workday
of the week. If the second day of the moon was the
first workday of the week then that proves Paul
kept the weekly Sabbath on the eighth day of the
moon, then the 15th, etc. The New moon was not counted.
Won’t you follow Him as He follows the Master?
Sabbaths are on the 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th in
the second moon. Apostle Paul remembered the true
Sabbath day to keep it Holy. By counting six workdays
after the New moon day, then resting on the seventh
day according to the commandment, it will always
be on the eighth day from the New moon, or the beginning,
as it was in Genesis, chapter 1.
