**Another
proof the Roman calendar **can’t be right
is that all time keeping instruments must have a
starting point. If the starting point for dates
is an arbitrary, earthly one such as the International
Date Line (I.D.L.) you will have Friday the sixth
day of the week on one side of the line and Saturday
the seventh day of the week on the other side, and
both sides of the line are in the **same evening and
morning. **It would be preparation day as the evening
arrives on one side of the line, and Sabbath day
on the other side, a whole day apart; and then when
one side of the line keeps the Sabbath and the other
side keeps the preparation, the next day the other
side of the line will keep it’s Sabbath as
the evening begins and the Sabbath will be over
on the other side of the street at the same evening
and they will go back to work on Sunday. One side
will be working and the other keeping the Sabbath.
Ask yourself; can the day be holy on one side of
the street and not the other? You do not have this
problem with the Heavenly calendar because the starting
point is in Heaven. For example, if both sides of
the IDL are looking at the moon and count six workdays
and rest on the seventh, then as it gets dark, both
sides will be keeping the same day; and both sides
will be holy to YHWH.

** Let
us imagine** the IDL running through Israel.
Now, imagine Israelites camping on either side of
the line. On one side, it will be the Sabbath day
and on the other, it will be the preparation day.
YHWH does not work like that, because He is not
the author of confusion. The Sabbath is the Sabbath
for all His people when the evening starts. Can
you imagine the day being holy on one side of the
camp and not the other?

Now,
**let us examine** the currently accepted
seven-day cycle. People assume the weeks are
solar, when in fact they are lunar. The Scriptures never mentions a
seven-day cycle. It is more a pattern of rest after
six **workdays,** and the New moon is not one of them.
To prove the cycle wrong all one has to do is think.
The earth spins around once every twenty-four hours,
causing a cycle. If someone were to walk east toward
the sun while someone else stayed still, then the
one walking would meet the sun earlier and earlier
each day than the one sitting still gradually gaining
time until they get 10 hours, 15 hours, and 24 hours
ahead of the ones sitting still, a full cycle ahead.
Now if the one walking travels around the Earth,
back to where the one standing still is, he will
have gained one whole day, because he made an extra
cycle around the Earth while the other sat still
and waited each day for the sun to rise. The traveler
actually gained a sunrise at the end of the journey
around the Earth, even if it took twenty years to
complete. This is a fact that cannot be denied.
Now, given this fact, a group of people keeping
the earth’s cycle by an earthly calendar has
serious problems. If half of the group decides to
go into the world to evangelize, and they migrate
around the world keeping the seven-day cycle, when
they meet up with the other half of the tribe twenty
years later, or their descendants 2,000 years later,
they would be one day apart in their Sabbath keeping,
even though they have the same calendar and neither
missed a beat on the seven-day cycle. Would you
expect the travelers to go back around the world
to get on the same day as the others? Or, would
you expect them to deny the cycle of six workdays
counting the New moon as one of them and just get
back with the other half by losing a day and change
the cycle they kept the last twenty years, or ancestors
did for the last 2,000 years? Alternatively, maybe
look at their time keeping methods? If someone left
Israel and traveled east around the world and came
again from the west, they would be keeping the Sabbath
a day ahead of the ones that stayed. This would
not have been noticed if everyone in Israel had
migrated around the world and came back because
they were keeping the seven-day cycle and no one
could tell them they were in another day, and both
days could not be the day He rested. You can prove
all this by picturing two people on a merry-go-round
which would represent the Earth spinning and someone
counting each time they came around. This person
represents the sun. Now, if one person sitting on
the merry-go-round and the other walks toward the
way they are spinning, the one walking will see
and pass the person watching and counting, before
the one sitting. The one walking sees the counter
sooner and sooner and when they get back to where
the one is sitting; they will have been counted
one more time as they passed the counter, representing
the sun, in the same way as people migrate around
the Earth. By keeping this cycle and this calendar;
it is possible for five people to keep five different
days as the Sabbath, and all be right. This is not
so with the moon.
