     For one to find the seventh day of the week, he must know what a biblical week is and when it begins in order to find the seventh day.

Let’s look at some writings of men that lived at the time of the New Testament along with the scriptures to see how they perceive a week. Was it by the four phases of the moon, or did they notch off seven days and keep the seventh?

We will start with Clement of Alexander known as one of the early church age fathers who wrote in the second century A.D. (150-215 A.D.) In chapter 16 of the Stomata, Clement plainly says that in periods of seven days the moon undergoes its changes. In the first week she becomes Half moon; in the second week, Full moon; and in the third week in her wane, again Half moon; and in the forth week she disappears. Notice that Clement is connecting the week with the seven day phases of the moon.

Now hear what Philo has to say about the week which naturally ends with a Sabbath or seventh day. “Like a full moon at the height of its increase at the end of the second week, under preliminary studies Works of Philo, by Yonge pg. 313xix(106).” Full moon is at the end or the second week or on a Sabbath. Philo lived at the time of the Messiah and was a prominent Jew of Alexander and kept the weeks days by the moon. Notice the full moon will be on the 7th day of the second week making the full moon a Sabbath, the 1st week the half moon ends the week on another Sabbath etc. Does this go along with scriptures? Yes. See chapter 16 of Exodus. When the Sabbath was made known to Moses where YHWH spoke to him on the 15th a full moon Sabbath, and told them to gather manna for six days which began on the 16th day of the month (1st day of week) and ended on the 21st (6th day of the week) and said none would be on the next day, (22nd half moon) for it is the Holy Sabbath.

I can pinpoint at least 16 separate months in the scriptures and every one of them the Sabbath is as Philo and Clement wrote are at the end of the week by the moon which is always on the 8th (half), 15th (full), 22nd (half), and 29th (last sliver).

There is much debate about where the week originated. Most scholars agree that the week was originally connected to the moon, but not all. We offer $1,000 reward to anyone who can find our modern concept of a week (solar) in scripture.

There are fragments of a calendar found in the Dead Sea Scrolls written in Pailleo Hebrew. (Old Hebrew) It tells how the moon on the 8th day of the moon rules all day in the sky, and at night WHICH BEGINS THE 9th IT SAYS IT is the 1st day of the week, which MEANS the SABBATHS ARE ON THE 8TH, 15TH, 22ND, AND 29TH, EVERY MONTH. which goes along with what Philo and Clement say.

Bottom line is that the weeks are Lunar (by the moon) and at the end of each lunar week you have a Lunar Sabbath on the half-moon, full-moon, half moon, and then the last sliver. (8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th.)

Nowhere in the scriptures can you find a week that is not connected to the moon or its cycles. The week is found in Nature the same as the day-(dark to dark), month-(one ends another begins, dark to dark). The year-(equal days and nights), Something your can observe for yourself in nature and not some man made calendar that tells you that a day begins at 12:00 midnight. You can't see nothing that proves one day ended and another began, same with the week, you can see and count the seven days in the four weeks of the moon phases. The month also must be observed in nature for man to see for himself and not just count 30 or 31 days, no matter what the true moon is doing.
