"But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king:

at his wrath the earth shall tremble,

and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.

Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens

and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth,

and from under these heavens.  He hath made the earth by his power,

he hath established the world by his wisdom,

and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion."

“Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that bringeth good tidings,

that publisheth peace!  O Judah, keep thy solemn feasts, perform thy vows:

for the wicked shall no more pass through thee:  he is utterly cut off.”

Nahum 1:15

 

Please be aware that all GOD’s Feast Days, including the New Moons,

are determined by the New Moon Crescents “Sighted” from the Middle East. 

Often times, the Moon Crescent is seen in the States before enough of it is visible

from the Jerusalem/Jordan/Middle East causing Israelites in the States to start

the Feast Days a day BEFORE Israelites in the Land of Israel.  As you can see,

this makes no sense.  Hence, it is our suggestion that everyone await

the New Moon Crescent “Sighting” from Israel/Jordan before starting GOD’s Feast Days.

GIVING ALL PRAISES TO THE MOST HIGH CREATOR GOD OF ISRAEL, Happy New Year to all, and may the blessings of the Holy ONE be upon Israelites and the Strangers who seek to follow HIM in Truth and in Righteousness.  Likewise, may the Holy ONE of Israel deal with those who take HIS Holy Name in vain and use it for their own agenda to deceive, manipulate, abuse, and cause the fall of Israelites.  

 

May this Hebrew Calendar year be the time that YIHOVAH, the All-Mighty GOD of Abraham and Moses, will make a difference in the lives of all who trust in HIM to do HIS Will and follow HIS Ways of Righteousness in Truth for HIS Holy Name’s Sake.

 

BLESSED BE YIHOVAH FOREVER AND LET HIS PEOPLE, ISRAEL, JOIN TOGETHER TO SHOW FORTH HIS TRUTH AND HIS PRAISE

BEFORE THE WORLD IN ORDER THAT ALL NATIONS

WILL GLORIFY AND BOW

for my name shall be great among the heathen, saith the LORD of hosts.”

Malachi 1:11

We know that this is the year 2008 on the Gregorian Calendar, but unfortunately, I do not know exactly what year it is on the Hebrew Calendar since the time that the CREATOR chose Abram.  But I do know that we must recognize what the Holy ONE said in Exodus 12:2: “This month shall be unto you the beginning of months:  it shall be the first month of the year to you.”  Hence, it seems feasible that at this COMMANDMENT, we should start to record the first year.    However, just for your information, according to present day records, it is documented that Moses lived around the 15th – 13th centuries B.C.E (a gap of 200 years).  Therefore, this knowledge should be considered when reading history books.

 

*******

 

The purpose of this Hebrew Calendar is not only to provide TORAH Readings and Scripture from the “Old Testament” throughout the year but to also raise consciousness to the fact that being Israelites, we are Lawfully bound to Our GOD and HIS Book of the Law to live and do it ALWAYS, as it is written.  I have also listed additional Scriptural passages to remind us of all the evils of our forefathers who caused our captivity with hopes that we will not repeat their sins against Our Holy ONE of Israel.  It should be noted that from year to year, while producing this TORAH READINGS CALENDAR, I invariably add Scripture to embellish an even greater light on GOD’s LAW and HIS WORD to HIS Prophets, as well, I revise some of what's written. 

 

“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein:  for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” Joshua 1:8

 

“Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness,

the people in whose heart is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men,

neither be ye afraid of their revilings.”

Isaiah 51:7

HOW THIS HEBREW CALENDAR IS DETERMINED:

 

There are in fact other Hebrew Israelite Calendars in existence, but I like to think of this one as being rather unique.  It is based totally on GOD’s Book of the Law and begins “TORAH” Readings with Exodus 12th Chapter in correlation with the New Moon “Sighting” which identifies the start of Spring/Abib – the Beginning of Months unto us (Exodus 12:2).  It provides TORAH “Readings” (the First Five Books, respectively throughout the year) for each Seventh Day Sabbath of Complete Rest, New Moon, and Holy Feast Day, excluding the Feast of Weeks, because the LAW does not denote a particular “date” for this Feast Day as it does for the others.  Therefore, rather than add to the LAW, the observance of the Feast of Weeks is purposely left out.  (More information on the Feast of Weeks follows a few pages down.)  This Hebrew Calendar is also special in that it enlightens those who are “new” to the Truth and who seriously seek to follow ONLY the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Exodus 3:15).  

 

This OUR Hebrew Calendar starts with every Spring or “Aviv/Abib” – at the New Moon Sighting for the First Day of the New Year.

 

"Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:)"  

Exodus 23:15

 

Thus, this Hebrew Calendar is determined by the New Moon “Sighting” that falls on or after the Spring equinox:

 

"The path taken by the sun, however, is at an angle to the equator.  The noonday sun shines directly on the equator on March 20th every year, and on that date, night and day are each twelve hours long all over the Earth.  This day is known as the vernal equinox, since vernal comes from the Latin word for spring, and equinox from the Latin word for equal night."  Isaac Asimov's Guide to Earth and Space, pp. 19

 

“The equinoxes are the two points of intersection between the ecliptic (the Sun's apparent annual path) and the celestial equator (the equator of the CELESTIAL SPHERE). The two moments in the year when the Sun is exactly over the equator, and day and night are hence of equal length, are the times of these equinoxes. In the Northern Hemisphere the vernal, or spring equinox occurs about March 21, and the autumnal equinox occurs about September 23. In the Southern Hemisphere the seasons are reversed.”   Grolier 1996

 

March (month), third month of the Gregorian calendar, according to the present calendar. March was the first month of the Roman year, named after Mars, the god of war. In Britain, until the Gregorian calendar was adopted in 1752, March was considered the first month with the legal year beginning on March 25. The vernal or spring equinox occurs on March 20 or 21 (see Ecliptic).   The ENCARTA Encyclopedia (1999)

 

The use of the “equinox“ enables us to sustain a solar calendar in compliance with Genesis 1:14.   If we use a date before the “equinox” we would be creating a New Year before one actually begins.  Hence, the “equinox” (observance March 19-21) serves as a checks and balance system to ensure that we maintain a Hebrew Calendar that begins in the Spring of every year, and that we observe Passover at the appointed time in its season, which is “in the first month of the year.”

 

“And the LORD spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying,

 

“Let the children of Israel also keep the passover at his appointed season.”  

Numbers 9:2,3  

 

We know that our Hebrew New Year begins in the Spring of each year - for this is the “beginning of months” unto us, i.e., First Month, Second Month, etc.  We also know that the Hebrew New Year falls in its season around the same time each year, depending upon the “Sighting” of the New Moon Crescent.  Hence, it should be noted that this Hebrew Calendar will not begin on the same day/date each year, and the reason is that the New Moon Crescent falls on a different day every month and every year. That being a given, each new Hebrew Calendar year starts with the first Moon Crescent that falls on or after the so-called “spring equinox,” which is the time when day and night are of equal lengths - date being assuredly March 19-21 every year.  Accordingly, because this Hebrew Calendar follows each Moon Crescent, it is, therefore, a Solar(sun) / Lunar(moon) Calendar.

 

If the CREATOR, the Holy ONE of Israel, took away the sun, there could be no seasons or lighted phases of the moon.  If HE took away the moon, we would have no way of knowing when one month would end and when another would begin.  Therefore, the New Moon “Sighting” (Crescent) is a most valuable “observable” event in the Hebrew Israelite Way of Life. 

 

“And God said, Let there be LIGHTS in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:”   Genesis 1:14   (Caps. are mine.)

 

“He [GOD] appointed the moon for seasons:  the sun knoweth his going down.”   Psalm 104:19

 

With this Hebrew Calendar, the “Spring Season” begins at the “Sighting” of the New Moon on or after the spring equinox!  On this Hebrew Calendar, each month lists three days for the “New Moon Crescent Watch,” which is when we attempt to Sight the NM Crescent – one of the LIGHTED “Signs” spoken of in Genesis 1:14.  And hopefully, Israelites will take part in its watch, searching the western skies just above the horizon to observe this appointed time.

 

“Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial before your God: I am the LORD your God.”   Numbers 10:10

 

“…offer all burnt sacrifices unto the LORD in the sabbaths, in the new moons, and on the set feasts, by number, according to the order commanded unto them, continually before the LORD:”   I Chronicles 23:31

 

“And it shall be the prince's part to give burnt offerings, and meat offerings, and drink offerings, in the feasts, and in the new moons, and in the sabbaths, in all solemnities of the house of Israel: he shall prepare the sin offering, and the meat offering, and the burnt offering, and the peace offerings, to make reconciliation for the house of Israel.”   Ezekiel 45:17

 

Some Hebrew Israelites used to follow this same process for determining the New Year, except if they thought the Crescent Moon appeared too soon or too far from a designated date in March, then they would manipulate their calendar.  However, they have since changed this practice, as they realized that it would have been wrong to manipulate their calendar to cause the New Year to fall at their discretion.  In my opinion this is just as bad as what the Jewish Rabbinate does with preventing the Day of Atonement to fall on a certain day of the week.  The New Moon Crescent of the New Year should be able to flow as the CREATOR permits it to do and without our tampering with the Solar/Lunar Calendar AND without looking for barley to determine the start of the New Year, which, unfortunately, is now the practice of the “Calendar Coalition,” who used to manipulate their calendar.  The “Calendar Coalition” is a group of Israelites who established a Calendar based on a “Barley Search.”

 

Waiting for the observance of mature barley before calling the Hebrew New Year is not what we have been Commanded to do, but rather this method is adding to GOD’s WORD.  According to Genesis 1:14, we must use the “Lights” in the Heavens to determine our Seasons, Days, and Years, and this method does not entail a search for mature or green ears of barley.  The CREATOR's means of reckoning time entails watching for the “Signs” in the Heavens that HE put in place specifically so that we will have no problems recognizing our Seasons, Days, and Years.   And with this information, we are able to observe GOD's Holy Feast Days at the appointed times, in their seasons. 

 

Yes, for real, as ridiculous as it may seem, some Israelites depend on a “Barley Sighting” to call the start of the New Year.  This method can prove to be a faulty and inconsistent manner of determining such an important event if barley is not found.  Suppose because of a drought, there is no barley, or suppose because the temperatures are so warm during the winter months that the barley appears in February (as happened in 2003), do we start the Passover observance dependent on this early sighting of barley?  Of course NOT!  Obviously, the use of the spring equinox serves as a better and more reliable indicator of Abib/Aviv, the Spring Season, i.e., the beginning of months unto us!  And we cannot rule out the mature barley that exists but goes unnoticed.  This would be a definite problem for those on the annual search for barley.

 

We cannot afford to follow the inventions of our hearts but to follow only the WORD of Our GOD of Israel, and right now all we have for establishing a Hebrew Calendar is Genesis 1:14 for determining our Seasons, Days, and Years.  So, we may as well work with it intelligently and with civility.  The beginning of time (Seasons, Days, and Years) started in the First Chapter of Genesis, and this is where we need to be focused.  Our CREATOR GOD gave good examples of how we were to reckon the 24-hour day, e.g., the evening and the morning were the First Day…the evening and the morning were the Second Day, etc.  Likewise, HE designated use of the sun, moon, and even the stars to determine days, seasons, months, and years.

 

Nevertheless, some Israelites are still adamant about searching for mature barley before calling the Hebrew New Year.  We are supposed to be wise from keeping GOD’s LAW, so how can we ignore Genesis 1:14 for "barley", which has nothing to do with "Lights" in the Firmament for establishing a Hebrew Calendar that is so important to our Spirituality.  Using “barley” and not the “LIGHTS” in the Heavens is analogous with using the groundhog to see if there will be six more weeks of winter.  Seriously, think about it!

 

Every Brother who stands by the “Barley Search” for the Hebrew New Year justifies this assumed method by making a connection with barley (green young ears) and Israel’s agriculture. 

 

Well, this, too, makes no sense, as the Nation of Israel did not get involved with crops and grains (green/young ears) until after the 40-year period in the Wilderness.  During the 40 years in the Wilderness, the Holy ONE had the Israelites WANDERING constantly from one place to another.  Therefore, agriculture cannot serve as evidence for the use of a “Barley Search” for the “beginning of months,” unto the Israelites, because in the Wilderness, there was nothing even to suggest that any cultivation was taking place.  And to even make mention of “agriculture” to prove a “Barley Search,” is not only out of the question, but the notion is completely without merit.  We cannot prove a “Barley Search” for our Hebrew New Years by a means (agriculture) that existed AFTER the Israelites left out of the Wilderness.  Therefore, AGAIN, we must use that which makes sense.  We must use what we have been Commanded to use: 

 

“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:”   Genesis 1:14

 

Not only that, but the drought in the Wilderness prevented barley growth and any other kind of growth, as the Holy ONE’s Plan was to feed the Nation of Israel Manna HIMSELF in order to prove them to see if they would keep HIS LAW or not. 

 

“…the LORD thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage; Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint; Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end;”   Deuteronomy 8:14 – 16 

 

“Neither said they, Where is the LORD that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, that led us through the wilderness, through a land of deserts and of pits, through a land of drought, and of the shadow of death, through a land that no man passed through, and where no man dwelt?”   Jeremiah 2:6

 

“Yet I am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me: for there is no saviour beside me. I did know thee in the wilderness, in the land of great drought.”   Hosea 13:4,5

 

Therefore, it is not at all likely the Israelites used a “Barley Search” during the forty (40) years they were wandering in the Wilderness to determine each New Year, as that would contradict the existence of a drought in the above passages, as well as the use of only Manna to eat, to prove the Israelites.   

 

“Then said the LORD unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.”   Exodus 16:29

 

Unfortunately, we, Israelites, still have not learned to walk in YAH’s LAW, even with Commandments that are clear as crystal to do, and this has been OUR PROBLEM ever since Our SAVIOR chose us for HIS Covenant People.

 

However, my question is, “If there were a drought in the Wilderness and an absence of barley and any other produce to eat, then how did the Israelites determine the start of each New Year?”  My wisdom tells me that they calculated the New Moon Crescent “Sighting,” just as did David (I Samuel 20:5), according to what's written in Genesis 1:14, of course.

 

Another component the “Calendar Coalition” uses for its Calendar is the “Leap Year.”  Leap years have no place in Hebrew/Israelite Culture and are an invention of Gentiles, for making their fabricated calendars jibe with the CREATOR’s Solar and Lunar Systems.  With the Hebrew Calendar established by using ONLY the “LIGHTS” in the Heavens (Genesis 1:14), the sun and the New Moon Crescent, there is absolutely no reason for a contrived leap year, which can only develop a hybrid calendar at best.  By the way, Julius Caesar is the father of the Leap Year.

 

I truly pray that we will come together on GOD’s Book of the Law and HIS WORD to HIS Prophets, as well as our Hebrew New Year without disdain for people who dispute ideals that do not correlate with what “THUS SAITH THE LORD.”  At some point, we are to take our places as the People of the Covenant who will know and be about nothing but living and doing GOD’s LAW without adding to or taking from it but rather Fearing ONLY Our REDEEMER to be the Righteous Remnant that HE will call.  And those of us endeavoring to meet this goal are going to be even stronger and more encouraged than ever to follow this MIGHTY LAW - our Hebrew Way of Life and every iota. 

 

“Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am the LORD your God.

 

“Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the LORD.”   Leviticus 18:4,5

 

“Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the LORD your God.”   Leviticus 18:30

 

The FEAR of the LORD GOD of Israel is the beginning of wisdom, and next is the keeping of HIS LAW!

 

THE WHITE JEWISH CALENDAR:

 

It must be understood that under no circumstances does this TORAH READINGS Calendar follow the doctrine of the White Jews or their religion, “Judaism,” which is based on the teachings of the Talmud.  Their Calendar months begin with the “Dark Phases” of the moon or what’s also called the “concealed moon” and the “conjunction.”  Thus, this “concealed moon” cannot be used as a “Sign” in the heavens to determine anything, as one cannot see it.  However, this “concealed moon” enables White “Jews” to manipulate their calendar and to deceive those of us who desire to serve and worship the Holy ONE of Israel on HIS Holy Feast Days and in their seasons, as HE has Commanded of us.   This, The LawKeepers TORAH READINGS CALENDAR adheres to Genesis 1:14.

 

Tribute to the New Moon Revised:

 

The service of this solar/lunar calendar of TORAH READINGS is by definition using the “LIGHTS” of the sun and moon, according to Genesis 1:14, to number the “days” of each month.  And the dark phases of the moon cooperatively and conveniently provide a break between the months.  If there were no dark phases of the moon, we would have a tough time determining when one month ended and when another would begin.  Hence, because the Commandment is to use the “Lights” in the Heavens for “Signs” for seasons, days, and years, the New Moon Crescent is what provides us with our first lights of each new month and these lights continue waxing and waning until they are diminished to the dark phases.  And then in two to three days, the New Moon Crescent reappears again starting the First Day of another new month.

 

Realizing that even some Israelites use the dark phase of the moon to call the new month, I would like to add one obvious fact.  By definition, there can only be a “New Moon,” per se, after the dark phase interval and when the New Moon Crescent reappears, thus, we understand the concept of having a New moon. 

 

If the dark phase of the moon begins the First Day of the month, then when the New Moon Crescent is “Sighted” that could approximately be as far into the month as the Fourth Day, i.e., the appearance of the “Light” in the Heavens could possibly fall on the Fourth Day.  It makes no sense to start to count the first dark phase of the moon as being the First Day of the month, as this process disregards the use of the “Light” in the Heavens to determine our “days,” as we are Commanded to do in Genesis 1:14.  Consider what King David said in I Samuel 20:24:  “…when the New Moon was come…”  He had to be speaking about the New Moon Crescent, as we are unable to “Sight” the appearance of the dark phase or rather see it “come.” 

 

It’s the absence of seeing the moon for forty-eight or more hours that enables us to identify the approaching Crescent “Sign” in the Heavens (mentioned in Genesis 1:14) that recognizes the moon as being “New.”    And upon “Sighting” this “New” Crescent” we distinguish it as being the “New Moon” and the time of the New Month, as well.

 

PLEASE NOTE:  The Hebrew New Year is also determined by the “LIGHTS” in the Heavens and not by the “sighting of barley.” 

 

For several years I have known that the White “Jews” (excluding the Karaites) use a pre-calculated nineteen-year cycle of intercalation based on the “Dark Phases” or concealed moon, for the First Day of the month of their “Jewish Calendar.”  They do not start their New Year with the search for mature barley, as do the Karaites, but they do use leap years in order to maintain adjustments in their calendars.

 

The Rabbinate does not use the “lights in the firmament…for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.”  By their using the “dark phases” of the moon, then they are able to manipulate their calendar to register the start of the month on whichever day they choose.  For example, The Day of Atonement will never fall on a Friday. 

 

“While all other fast days that fall on the Sabbath in a particular year are postponed to Sunday, Yom Kippur must be observed on its appointed day:  the tenth day of Tishri, as prescribed in the Bible.  The calendar was designed so that the tenth of Tishri should not fall on a Friday, Sunday, or Tuesday.

 

“If Yom Kippur were to fall on a Friday, it would be impossible to prepare food for the Sabbath.  If it were to fall on a Sunday, it would be impossible to do on the Sabbath all that is necessary to prepare for the fast.  If it were to fall on a Tuesday, Hoshana Rabba would fall on the Sabbath and the requirement that aravot (willows) be beaten would not be able to be observed, for this would be a violation of the Sabbath.”  THE JEWISH BOOK OF WHY, page 241

 

“What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.”   Deuteronomy 12:32

 

Tampering with GOD’s Book of the Law is a very serious violation, and the above Commandment proves that the Rabbinate defies GOD’s Ordinance by establishing their own religious doctrine, when they are clearly adding to and taking from GOD’s Law.  And the above book does not hesitate to inform readers of exactly how White religious Jews go about doing this. 

 

At this point, it should be noted that the beginning of months unto us neither depends on the ripening of “barley” nor the “Dark Phases” of the moon.  Nowhere in the Law does the Holy ONE Command that we use the “barley” of the Land of Israel to signify the start of the New Year but rather the “Lights” in the Heavens for Seasons, Days, and Years!  When the Holy ONE declared the “beginning of months” down in Egypt, HE did not have anyone searching for barley – not in Egypt and not in Israel.  Thus, any calendar based on a “Barley Search” or on the “Dark Phases” of the moon, when we are Commanded to use the “Lights” in the Heavens, is in gross error and the use of either one of these methods is in violation of GOD’s LAW and can only cause grave consequences in the observance of GOD’s Holy Feast Days. 

 

Being Israelites, we must discern the right and lawful thing to do and not go with the consensus and certainly not go with the White “Jews” if we know for a fact that they manipulate their calendars.   We are compelled to do that which we know to be reliable, valid, and correct according to GOD’s LAW.  At all times, in our Hebrew Way of Life, we must use GOD’s LAW, as we weigh issues and make decisions and without adding to and/or taking from GOD’s Righteous Ways.  And we must prove our decisions to be accurate and acceptable according to GOD’s Book of the Law, as we choose one decision over another.   This is wisdom.

 

“To the law and to the testimony:

if they speak not according to this word,

it is because there is no light in them.”

Isaiah 8:20

THE FOLLOWING IS A SPECIAL REPORT THAT WILL HOPEFULLY SHED MORE LIGHT ON THE ISSUE OF WHEN TO START EACH NEW MONTH AND EACH NEW YEAR:

 

HOW SHOULD ISRAELITES DETERMINE

THE START OF EACH NEW MONTH?

AND

WHEN IS THE HEBREW NEW YEAR

EXPECTED TO BEGIN?

 

“He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.”

Psalm 104:19

 

“Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day,

and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night,

which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar;

The LORD of hosts is his name:

 

“If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD,

then the seed of Israel also shall cease

from being a nation before me for ever.”

Jeremiah 31:35,36

Not only is a New Month upon us, but so also is a New Year and Passover, as well, and unfortunately, we are still at odds concerning how Israelites are to determine the start of each New Hebrew Month and our Hebrew New Year.  For sure, it is our fault and not the fault of the CREATOR that we don’t realize the start of our months and years because HE has certainly given us ample information in order for us to realize when to start each new month and each Hebrew New Year.   There is not even the slightest suggestion that our forefathers suffered this problem, so why do we?

 

Some Israelites would say that “The beginning of months” is upon us upon finding mature barley anywhere in Israel.  I am puzzled as to when to start looking for this barley, because when the months of January and February are warmer than usual for this time of the year, barley can be found anywhere in the country, especially in and near the Jordan Valley.  So, if mature barley is found in February, are we to use the New Moon of that month to begin the Hebrew New Year?  I don’t think so.  In addition to that, consider the fact that mature barley could be in existence but unseen or rather unfound for this most important mission.  Such a possibility exists and therefore it also renders this concept of searching for mature barley to determine the Hebrew New Year not only without credibility but ill-advised, as well.  And in the event that there is a serious drought or a plague or locust that destroys or consumes all the barley, well, what then?   People who depend on “Barley Sighting” will be in a pickle, that’s what!

 

“Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and shalt gather but little in; for the locust shall consume it.”   Deuteronomy 28:38

 

“If there be dearth in the land, if there be pestilence, if there be blasting, or mildew, locusts, or caterpillers;…”   II Chronicles 6:28

 

“If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;”   II Chronicles 7:13

 

Those, like myself who beg to differ with this “Barley Sighting” concept, assert that neither barley nor any other plant can be a factor in association with the start of our Hebrew New Year, as this method is flawed and not practical.  The key and most important reason for rejecting “Barley Sighting” as basis for determining the New Year is that the CREATOR GOD is clear on how to decide on our seasons, days, and years.  And neither barley nor any other “plant” is mentioned as a means to do so.

 

“And God said, Let there be LIGHTS in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for SIGNS, and for seasons, and for days, and years:”   Genesis 1:14  [Caps. are mine.]

 

Now, I’ve been told that I do not understand this verse.  The fact of the matter is that this verse should be taken literally and without interpretation, as it certainly does not need one.  I view this verse as being crystal clear, and to reject any part of it is to diminish from what the CREATOR has Commanded of us.  If we do not use the “LIGHTS” in the Heavens for “SIGNS” to determine our months, then we are not just adding to and diminishing the Commandment in Genesis 1:14, but we are changing GOD’s Ordinance.  And in doing so, we bring upon ourselves much confusion.  Hence, we must accept what’s written and use the “LIGHTS” in the Heavens for “SIGNS” for our seasons, days, and years.  The CREATOR GOD of Israel did not leave us Psalm 104:19 for naught.

 

“He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.”

 

It is my understanding from what’s written in Genesis 1:14 that there are to be LIGHTS in the Heavens for SIGNS.  And I am particularly reminded that these “LIGHTS” are interpreted “luminaries,” of which I do quite agree, as both the sun and the moon shine.  However, the sun emits its own “Light.”   And although the moon also shines, please understand that it can only do so because of the sun’s reflection that causes it to shine.  Keep in mind that if there were no sun, then the moon would never shine.  It’s these luminaries (“SIGNS”) in the Heavens that enable us to depict seasons, days, and years:

 

The fact that the CREATOR gives/uses “SIGNS” for us to “see,” is evident that we must be able to sight something in the Heavens.  And the luminaries – the “LIGHTS” of the sun and moon - are the “SIGNS” we must use for our seasons, days, and years. 

 

Webster’s New Collegiate Definition of luminary:

 

“a source of light or illumination; a body that gives light: esp : one of the celestial bodies: a person brilliantly outstanding in some respect”

 

If the sun, moon, and the stars are the “LIGHTS” or “luminaries” in the Heavens that we are Commanded to use for “SIGNS,” how then can anyone suggest using the “Conjunction” or “Dark Phase” of the moon for the First Day of the month, when absolutely nothing at all is visible for a “SIGN” at this time of the month?   Why have a New Moon Crescent at all, if its first light is of no significance to us?

 

The Stars are also a factor in determining our seasons.  The CREATOR provides us with a new starlight wonder each month in HIS Heavens for us to also use for determining our seasons, days, and years.

 

“Throughout the ages, mankind has looked to the heavens and tried to make sense of the lights in the sky. The ancient peoples of the world thought they could see pictures in the stars. These chance alignments of stars, also known as asterisms, are known as today constellations. Many ancient cultures around the world have assigned pictures to these star groupings. Many of these images find their roots shrouded in mythology. In our modern world, it can be difficult to make out the shapes of the constellations because city lights obscure the dimmer stars. But they are still used to help identify and locate objects in space. There are currently 88 main constellations recognized by the astronomical community. Here we will explore these constellations and identify the major points of interest within each. They are often grouped according to the month in which they are best visible. These monthly listings assume that you are looking at the sky at 9:00 PM. For every hour later than 9:00, add half of a month. For every hour before 9:00, subtract half a month.”

 

As previously mentioned, the “conjunction” is a reference of the moon when it is not visible, i.e., the time of month when the moon is at its “Dark Phases.”  It is at this time (the “Dark Phases” of the moon) when many Israelites start the First Day of the New Month rather than wait until the “Sighting” of the New Moon Crescent or rather the luminaries in the Heavens to begin the New Month.  My argument is that when using the “Dark Phase” of the moon, which no one can see, for the First Day of the new month, one is not adhering to Genesis 1:14, to use the LIGHTS (luminaries) in the Heavens to determine (in this case) the “days.”  And actually, that fact alone should end the debate and prove them to be in error.  However, those who use the “Dark Phase” for the start of the New Month, do not see it that way. 

 

According to those who use the “Conjunction” of the moon for the First Day of the month, this “Dark Phase” of the moon is the “SIGN” in the Heavens for our First Day of the Month and not the “Lighted Crescent.”

 

Those of us who adhere to using the “LIGHTS” in the Heavens for a “Sign” for our days await the “Sighting” of the Crescent Moon.  Otherwise, we are not following the CREATOR’s Commandment.  And without question those who admit to using the “Conjunction” or rather the “Dark Phase” of the moon to call the First Day of the Month are certainly not following what’s written to use the “LIGHTS” for “SIGNS” for seasons, days, and years. 

 

WHAT ARE THE SIGNS FOR

THE START OF EACH HEBREW NEW YEAR?

 

Another issue is in regard to the word “Abib.”  From what I understand, some Israelites feel that this word refers to “the green / the young ear” plants of barley or perhaps some other plant.   And when mature barley is “Sighted,” then that month starts the Hebrew New Year.

 

In Exodus 13:4, the "Hebrew" is worded “in month the hahaviv.”  Well, if you have ever studied Hebrew, the first thing you learn is that it is not to your advantage to interpret Hebrew the way English is spoken.  Accordingly, the “hah” before a Hebrew noun or pronoun can in fact mean “the” or “this,” but in many, many other cases, “hah” before a word does not translate into anything.  One example is in Genesis 1:15 when the CREATOR says “to give light” or “li-hah-ear” in Hebrew.  There is no translation or reason in English for this “hah” in this word/phrase.  Another example is in Exodus 12:2, where we see the words “hah-khodesh hahzeh,” which when translated is “the month the this,” if speaking/interpreting Hebrew the way English is spoken.  

 

My point being, “the abib” or “hah aviv” does not have to mean “the month of the Abib,” or a reference to a “condition,” as I have been told.  Exodus 13:4 could very well translate in Hebrew to read the following:  “This day, you came out in the month of Abib” (Spring), which changes the whole picture, making “Abib” a “month of Spring” and not a “condition” or a reference to a “tender or green” plant.  It makes no sense to use a plant to determine a time of the year when the “LIGHTS” in the Heavens are for “SIGNS” and for “Seasons.”  And I, personally, cannot go beyond what’s written. 

 

“And God said, Let there be LIGHTS in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for SIGNS, and for seasons, and for days, and years:”   Genesis 1:14  (Caps. are mine.)

 

“Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the SUN FOR A LIGHT BY DAY, and the ordinances of the MOON AND OF THE STARS FOR A LIGHT BY NIGHT, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name:  If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever.”   Jeremiah 31:35  (Caps. are mine.)

 

Therefore, the LIGHTED “Ordinances” of the sun, moon, and stars (Genesis 1:14) in their exceptional positions in the Heavens at the same time each year (during the onset of Spring) denote the “beginning of months” unto us or rather the start of our Hebrew New Year.  And for the CREATOR GOD of Israel to demonstrate so much concern for these Ordinances to have their places in the Heavens for all to see as a “Sign” should explain to us just how necessary it is for HIS Wondrous LIGHTS to shine for all mankind to witness and credit HIM for this phenomena.

 

I would also like to note that for some Hebrew words, there are no English translations and vice versa.  For example, there is no “of” to be translated from English to Hebrew (see the “of” in Numbers 22:18).  This information is not to confuse the issue, but rather my intention is to share the facts in order that we will use what’s written to come together on our New Moons and New Years.  At the time of the Spring Equinox the Sun rises exactly in the east travels through the sky for 12 hours and sets in the west.  On this day, the night hours are also of 12.  The first New Moon Crescent that follows is the “beginning of months” unto us or rather is the beginning of our Hebrew New Year. 

 

I have listed verses that make mention of “Abib” below in an effort to clarify exactly what’s meant by “in the month Abib”:

 

1.

“This day came ye out in the month Abib.”   Exodus 13:4

 

2.

“Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:)”   Exodus 23:15

 

3.

“The feast of unleavened bread shalt thou keep. Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, as I commanded thee, in the time of the month Abib: for in the month Abib thou camest out from Egypt.”   Exodus 34:18

 

4.

“Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto the LORD thy God: for in the month of Abib the LORD thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night.”   Deuteronomy 16:1

 

Personally, I can see nothing here that makes any reference to plants.  And why should it?  The CREATOR Commanded us to use the “LIGHTS” (luminaries) in the Heavens for “SIGNS” to determine our seasons, days, and years.   Therefore, we must use Genesis 1:14 as a means to decipher the above Scripture. Therefore, I have again listed 1 – 4 and highlighted the definitive words and presented an interpretation for a better understanding of these passages. 

 

It is my understanding that Abib is a reference to the Spring SEASON and not to “green” “ears.”

 

1.

“This day came ye out in the month Abib.”   Exodus 13:4

 

This day came ye out in the month of the Spring Season, i.e., the “beginning of months unto you.”

  

2.

… in the time appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt… Exodus 23:15

The Holy ONE of Israel is the ONE that APPOINTED the “beginning of months” unto us,” therefore, in this month that HE APPOINTED, i.e., the beginning of our new SEASON, the Children of Israel came out of Egypt.  Whether it is in Scripture or not, we have learned that this time of year is the (Spring) “SEASON.  And IN IT the Israelites came out from Egypt.  This IN IT has to be a reference to (Spring) “SEASON.”  HEBREW:  khee-boe (in it) yahtzahtah (you came out) mi-meetzrahyim.(from Egypt).  I think the definitive words here are “in it,” as this phrase seems to clarify the whole matter.

 

“Let the children of Israel also keep the passover at his appointed season.

 

“In the fourteenth day of this month, at even, ye shall keep it in his appointed season: according to all the rites of it, and according to all the ceremonies thereof, shall ye keep it.”   Numbers 9:2,3

 

Now, isn’t that odd?  The CREATOR made no mention of “Abib” here, but rather “SEASON”!  In this passage HE is now Commanding that we observe Passover in its APPOINTED SEASON!  Hence, this is my reason for interpreting “Abib” to mean Spring “SEASON.”  Our seasons:  Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter Solstice can only be determined by the “LIGHTS” in the Heavens (Genesis 1:14). 

 

… in the time appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt.”  IN THE SPRING SEASON THE ISRAELITES CAME OUT FROM EGYPT!  IN ABIB THE ISRAELITES CAME OUT OF EGYPT!  If we are going to translate, then all the dots have to connect, the puzzle pieces have to fit, and above all, the translation must be in agreement with the WORDS of the CREATOR.

 

“Thou shalt therefore keep this ordinance in his SEASON from year to year.”   Exodus 13:10

 

“But at the place which the LORD thy God shall choose to place his name in, there thou shalt sacrifice the passover at even, at the going down of the sun, at the SEASON that thou camest forth out of Egypt.”   Deuteronomy 16:6

 

These passages adhere to making Genesis 1:14 our determining factor for defining the “seasons, days, and years,” i.e., the start of the “beginning of months unto you” or rather the start of our Hebrew New Year.

 

3.

in the time of the month Abib: for in the month Abib thou camest out from Egypt.”  Exodus 34:18

In the month of the Spring SEASON, thou camest out from Egypt. 

 

4.

“Observe the month of Abib…for in the month of Abib the LORD thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night.”   Deuteronomy 16:1

Observe the “beginning of months unto you” for in this month of the Spring Season, the LORD thy GOD brought thee forth out of Egypt by night.

 

This verse cannot be about observing the month of “green” “ears,” as there are Firstfruits and Ingathering harvests of green produce throughout the year.  And to use “Aviv” for produce just does not make sense, especially when the CREATOR has provided the “LIGHTS” in the Heavens specifically for “SIGNS” to denote Seasons, Days, and Years. 

 

Thus, the reason for my understanding that “Aviv/Abib” has much to do with the (Spring) “Season” - “the beginning of months unto us,” which is readily determined by the “LIGHTS” in the Heavens.

 

If we are TORAH Hebrews, then we have no choice but to follow GOD’s LAW, as it is written and without adding to it to confuse the issue.  Genesis 1:14 needs no barley to support and make this Commandment of using the “Lights” in the Heavens credible and able to stand alone for the sake of doing exactly what the CREATOR said:

 

“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:”   Genesis 1:14

 

Just because some of us do not fully understand this verse that is no reason to assume it does not supply us with sufficient information for determining Seasons, Days, and Years.  I have been maintaining a Hebrew Calendar now for seven years now, and I never once went in search of barley in Egypt, in Israel, or in Jordan, as it’s not at all necessary to do so.  If there were a need to use barley as a factor, the CREATOR would have mentioned that IN THE BEGINNING.  And since HE didn’t, we should be satisfied with what HE Commanded or leave the issue alone.  But we should NEVER ADD ulterior views to HIS Ordinance in an effort to support that of our own. 

 

It’s wonderful to study Hebrew, but not if we are going to use it to change and ADD to what THUS SAITH THE LORD, for then for sure we create problems for ourselves and fall short of the CREATOR’s expectations of us. 

 

Given Genesis 1:14, there has got to be great significance for the Holy ONE positioning the sun, moon, and stars (LIGHTS) so dynamically in the Heavens once a year for us to stand as witnesses for HIS Creation:  Seasons, Days, Years. 

 

We need to know why the “sun” crosses directly over the Earth's equator at the time of the Spring Equinox and rises in the east and travels through the sky for 12 hours and sets in the west. 

 

We need to know why the moon positions itself in the sky in a different phase every night, excluding the days it is in its “Dark Phase,” when it cannot be seen for 1-3 nights. 

 

We need to know why (stars) a certain “constellation” is only visible in March at 9 o’clock P.M. 

 

What other reason could it be except for us to know “the Beginning of months” unto us?  These phenomena are not for naught.

 

This concept is in keeping with Genesis 1:14 – using the “LIGHTS” in the Heavens for “SIGNS” to acknowledge our Seasons, Days, and Years. The CREATOR saw fit to write in Genesis the First Chapter exactly how we are to determine the beginning of each New Day, and in this same chapter, HE also included exactly how we are to determine the new seasons, days, and years.   

 

I am ashamed to say that we, as Hebrew Israelites, have so many differences, when there really is no reason for them.  Once we make it up in our minds to follow GOD’s LAW and HIS WORD to HIS Prophets, then there need be no confusion.  O that we had the minds of a computer.  People think computers to be very intelligent, but in actually, they are dumb as doornails.  Computers are programmed to do various functions, otherwise they would be useless.  If we were so programmed like a computer but to follow GOD’s Book of the Law, as it is written, then there would be no confusion about when a day begins, when the Seventh Day Sabbath begins, how we should keep it, and/or when to determine our New Year and the start of our Hebrew Months.

 

“Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them, that ye may prosper in all that ye do.”   Deuteronomy 29:9

 

“Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest.

 

“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”   Joshua 1:7,8

 

“Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.

 

“…my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.”   Psalm 35:27,28

 

May the Holy ONE of Israel open our eyes to know and understand HIS WORD and COMMANDMENTS, as we seek to grow in HIS Ways of Righteousness, in HIS Way of Life, and in HIS Peace with each other, as this is for our welfare and for the prosperity of the Nation of Israel.

 

O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL

IS JUST AND GOOD!

 

***

 

This TORAH READINGS Calendar, herewith, follows GOD’s Book of the Law and nothing else:

 

“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days, and years:”  

Genesis 1:14

 

Because this TORAH READINGS Calendar is determined by the New Moon “Sighting” on or after the Spring equinox each year, it is a solar calendar consisting of approximately 365 days.  And because the months of this Hebrew Calendar are determined by each New Moon “Sighting,” i.e., the “LIGHT” in the firmament that poses as the “SIGN” for days, it is a lunar calendar.  Therefore, our Hebrew Calendar must be a solar/lunar calendar, if we are to observe the “beginning of months” every Spring and in its season each new year.

 

“AND the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,

 

“This month shall be unto you the beginning of months:  it shall be the first month of the year to you.”   Exodus 12:1,2

 

“This day came ye out in the month Abib.”   Exodus 13:4

 

“Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread:  (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, IN THE TIME APPOINTED OF THE MONTH ABIB; for in it thou camest out from Egypt…”   Exodus 23:15   (Caps. are mine.)

 

HOLY FEAST DAYS, NEW MOONS, AND SABBATHS OF REST:

 

This TORAH Readings Hebrew Calendar focuses on the Holy Feast Days, New Moons, and Sabbath Days of Complete Rest because these are days that we must proclaim to be “holy convocations,” i.e., days that we must keep "Holy". 

 

Leviticus 23rd Chapter outlines GOD’s Holy Feast Days that HE Commanded the Nation of Israel to observe and do.  It should be made perfectly clear that EVERY “DAY” begins in the evening (Genesis 1st Chapter) and NOT MIDNIGHT as Gentiles proclaim.  Therefore, ALL GOD’s Holy Days begin in the evening at sundown and END the next day in the evening at sundown (Leviticus 23:32). 

 

“AND the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

 

“Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.”   Leviticus 23:1,2

 

“And the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow with the trumpets; and they shall be to you for an ordinance for ever throughout your generations.”   Numbers 10:8

 

“Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial before your God:  I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD.”   Numbers 10:10   (Caps. are mine.)

 

“And Hezekiah appointed the courses of the priests and the Levites after their courses, every man according to his service, the priests and Levites for burnt offerings and for peace offerings, to minister, and to give thanks, and to praise in the gates of the tents of the LORD.

 

“He appointed also the king’s portion of his substance for the burnt offerings, to wit, for the morning and evening burnt offerings, and the burnt offerings for the Sabbaths, and for the new moons, and for the set feasts, AS IT IS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF THE LORD.”   II Chronicles 31:2,3

 

“Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.

 

“For this was a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob.”   Psalm 81:3,4

 

THE CREATOR's HOLY SEVENTH DAY OF COMPLETE REST

 

The Sabbath Day of Rest is probably the most controversial Holy Day that we have – even though it is the easiest of all to observe.  Some argue that we can't keep the Seventh Day Sabbath in Babylon (captivity).  Others say that it is a day of Complete Rest and no assemblies and gatherings are to take place because we must not leave our places or dwellings (Exodus 16:29), and these same people are also against any manner of broadcasting and computer use on this Holy Sabbath Day of Rest.  Some Israelites say that the Sabbath is not on fixed Saturdays and believe the New Moon falls every month on the First Day of the week (Sunday).  Thus, this method of reckoning the New Moons causes the Sabbath Days of Rest to float each month from one day of the week to the next throughout the year.  Still others focus only on NOT doing work/labor on this day but deem it permissible to do other activities.  And so many, many Israelites travel to their meeting places via car and public transportation to assemble, teach Hebrew, and hold “Sabbath Service. 

 

This TORAH READINGS Calendar asserts living and doing GOD’s Book of the Law, as it is written.  Therefore, we must all observe the Law of the Holy Seventh Day as it is written: 

 

“See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.”  Exodus 16:29

 

"If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:

 

"Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it."   Isaiah 58:13,14

 

Israelites have no choice in the matter.  We are compelled to “abide ye in your place on the Seventh Day,” keep it Holy, Rest and Refresh ourselves, and keep this day as a “Sign” between the Holy ONE of Israel and the Nation of Israel. 

 

On this TORAH READINGS Calendar, the Seventh Day Sabbaths do not alternate throughout the year from one day of the week to the next, as do some Israelite calendars.  On this Calendar, GOD’s Sabbaths of COMPLETE REST fall every single Seventh Day (“Saturday”) without fail just as the CREATOR initially planned it in the BEGINNING and without skipping a Seventh Day at the end of the month to provide for the First Day (New Moon) of the month.  Making the First Day of the month the First Day of the week is what causes the seventh days (of rest) to swing, throughout the year, from one day of the week to another.   This routine proves itself to be in err and a grave mistake when at the end of the month, nine and ten days separate the last “day of rest” from the next “day of rest.” This manner of making the First Day of the month, the First Day of the week is as much against GOD’s LAW as is the White Jewish Calendar that manipulates the Holy Days.

 

This TORAH READINGS Calendar recognizes GOD’s Seventh Day Sabbath as being “Holy” (since its inception, as of Genesis 2:2,3) and a “Sign” (Exodus 31:16,17) between the Holy ONE of Israel and HIS People whether we are in the land or not.  There is documented information that Pope Gregory, III changed the days on the calendar, but never has the sequence of the seven days of the week ever been changed, ALL PRAISES DUE TO THE CREATOR, THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL. 

 

If we are to recognize the Sabbath Day of Rest as a “Sign” between the Holy ONE of Israel and ourselves, then by all means we must keep it “Holy” wherever we are – for we, Israelites, are the Light to the World for HIS Holy Name’s Sake.  It is incumbent upon us to show forth GOD’s Praises and HIS Righteousness by keeping HIS Book of the Law and living it ALWAYS for Glory, and that includes GOD’s Holy Sabbath Day of Rest.

 

“Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.”   Exodus 31:16

 

“IF thou wilt return, O Israel, saith the LORD, return unto me:  and if thou wilt put away thine abominations out of my sight, then shalt thou not remove.

 

“And thou (ISRAEL) shalt swear, The LORD liveth, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness; and the NATIONS SHALL BLESS THEMSELVES IN HIM (YIHOVAH), AND IN HIM (YIHOVAH) SHALL THEY GLORY.”   Jeremiah 4:1,2

 

It should be realized that the Children of Israel not only kept the Sabbath of Rest in the Wilderness, but they also kept Passover there, as well (Numbers 9:5).  Hence, indeed we can and must keep the Seventh Day of Rest in our enemies’ lands or wherever we reside.

 

Indisputably, Deuteronomy 30th Chapter is explicit regarding what it takes for the Holy ONE of Israel to cause our return:”

 

“And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and THOU SHALT CALL THEM TO MIND AMONG ALL THE NATIONS, WHITHER THE LORD THY GOD HATH DRIVEN THEE.

 

“And shalt RETURN UNTO THE LORD THY GOD, and shalt OBEY HIS VOICE according to ALL that I COMMAND THEE THIS DAY, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul;

 

“That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee.”   Deuteronomy 30:1,2  

 

“Remember, I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst thy servant Moses, saying, If ye transgress, I will scatter you abroad among the nations:

 

“But IF YE TURN UNTO ME, AND KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS, AND DO THEM; though there were of you cast out unto the uttermost part of the heaven, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen to set my name there.”   Nehemiah 1:8,9

 

“If they sin against thee, (for there is no man that sinneth not,) and thou be angry with them, and deliver them to the enemy, so that they carry them away captives unto the land of the enemy, far or near; Yet if they shall bethink themselves in the land whither they were carried captives, and repent, and make supplication unto thee in the land of them that carried them captives, saying, We have sinned, and have done perversely, we have committed wickedness; And so return unto thee with all their heart, and with all their soul, in the land of their enemies, which led them away captive, and pray unto thee toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, the city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name: Then hear thou their prayer and their supplication in heaven thy dwelling place, and maintain their cause, And forgive thy people that have sinned against thee, and all their transgressions wherein they have transgressed against thee, and give them compassion before them who carried them captive, that they may have compassion on them: For they be thy people, and thine inheritance, which thou broughtest forth out of Egypt, from the midst of the furnace of iron: That thine eyes may be open unto the supplication of thy servant, and unto the supplication of thy people Israel, to hearken unto them in all that they call for unto thee. For thou didst separate them from among all the people of the earth, to be thine inheritance, as thou spakest by the hand of Moses thy servant, when thou broughtest our fathers out of Egypt, O LORD God.”   I Kings 8:46 – 53

 

Thus, it is quite clear that the Holy ONE did not mean for us to WAIT until we returned to our heritage to keep HIS Holy Seventh Day of Rest.  And HE did not intend for us to wait until we returned to our heritage before returning unto HIM and HIS Law in Righteousness.  Other passages that are indisputable are as follows:

 

“And the LORD shall scatter you among the nations, and ye shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither the LORD shall lead you.

 

But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.

 

“When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and SHALT BE OBEDIENT UNTO HIS VOICE;”   Deuteronomy 4:27,29,30

 

“Remember, I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst thy servant Moses, saying, If ye transgress, I will scatter you abroad among the nations: But if ye turn unto me, and keep my commandments, and do them; though there were of you cast out unto the uttermost part of the heaven, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen to set my name there.”   Nehemiah 1:8,9

 

At present, there are some Laws we cannot keep (Levitical Sacrifices), but the Sabbath Day of Rest is one that we can all observe, i.e., if it is our desire to do so. 

 

“And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.”   Exodus 24:12

 

“Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should DO SO IN THE LAND whither ye go to possess it.”   Deuteronomy 4:5 (Caps. are mine.)

 

The Israelite Way of Life was set in stone in the Wilderness, as to how we are Commanded to prepare to live according to ALL GOD’s LAW, as well as for HIS Holy Seventh Day Sabbath of Complete REST, i.e., how we are supposed to keep it, as well as the consequences for profaning it.  And there are no exceptions.

 

Too many Israelite leaders observe GOD’s Sabbath Day of Rest according to their understanding and not according to what’s written in GOD’s Book of the Law.  The Holy Sabbath Day of Rest is just that – a day for all of us to “Rest,” sleep, eat, read, and be refreshed without use of the microwave, television, radio, computers, broadcasts, tapes, strolling, teaching Hebrew, entertaining, traveling, and most definitely without working.  All of GOD’s Laws of the Sabbath Day of Rest are clear on exactly how we are to keep this Seventh Day:  Exodus 16:29; Exodus 31:12 - 18; Isaiah 58:13,14; Nehemiah 13:19; and Jeremiah 17:21,22. 

 

In that the Seventh Day is a Day of “Complete REST,” we cannot do on this day the things we ordinarily do on the other six days of the week, as this is forbidden.  We just cannot continue to profane GOD’s Sabbath Day of Rest.  This Seventh Day is SPECIAL and is to be kept HOLY unto the LORD and to be kept exactly as our forefathers were Commanded to keep it in the Wilderness, or we will pay the consequences – death!

 

Regarding “holy convocation,” that people seem to believe means a “call to assemble,” please know that one is hard pressed to find where “holy convocation” means to gather or to assemble on the Sabbath of Complete REST.   I firmly believe “holy convocation” followed by “no manner of work shall be done” is interpreted,call this a holy day on which no manner of work is to be done” IN ALL YOUR DWELLINGS.  In other words, wherever we “dwell” we are to abide there and “Rest” on GOD’s Holy Sabbath Day of “Rest.”  We do not dwell in GOD’s Holy Temple.  We (will) only visit this Holy Place on occasion to serve and worship Our GOD of Israel but never on the day on which YIHOVAH tells us to abide and “Rest” in our places.

 

According to the “Hebrew” Scriptures, “holy convocation” is written meekrah kodesh (not to be confused with chodesh/month).   Meekrah:  reading matter; Bible; recitation; and convocation, as well as “call” and “called.”  Kodesh:  holiness, sanctify; holy place according to Ehud Ben-Yehuda / David Weinstein’s Pocket English-Hebrew / Hebrew-English Dictionary.

 

Clearly – CLEARLY there are differences in the usage of these verbs:  to call (meek-rah) and to gather/assemble (ah-sahf, kah-batz, and ah-tzah-rah).   All one need do is sit with someone with knowledge of Hebrew and go through the LAW and the other Scriptures of the “Old Testament” and see the differences in the meanings of the verbto call”  (“to give a name to” or “to make a request or demand”) and the verb “to gather together” and/or “to assemble” the people.

 

There are many passages that make mention of “Solemn Assembly,” and I urge you to read them in Hebrew for a better understanding of knowing the differences in what the Scriptures meant by “Holy Convocation” and calling a “Solemn Assembly.”  Please read the following Scripture for further enlightenment:  Leviticus 23:36; Numbers 29:35; Deuteronomy 16:8; II Kings 10:20; II Chronicles 7:9; Nehemiah 8:18; Joel 1:14; and Joel 2:15.

 

In this same regard, please consider Joel 2:15 that is most definitely speaking about a “call” to assemble, but yet differs from the “holy convocation” in Leviticus 23:3 that people choose to believe is a Commandment to assemble on GOD’s Holy Sabbath Day of Rest despite HIS Commandment to “abide ye every man in his place on the seventh day.”

 

“Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:”   Joel 2:15

 

If the above verse had been written along with Leviticus 23:3, there would be no question that Our GOD wants us to “assemble” on the Seventh Day Sabbath.  But it isn’t there!  Hence, we must call this day “Holy,” do absolutely no work, and permit our bodies to “REST” and be refreshed on every Seventh Day.

 

Further evidence that “holy convocation” DOES NOT mean to assemble is that we are told that Passover is a “holy convocation” but yet, we are Commanded to observe this High Holy Day with our immediate family (in each one's house) and only to join with another family if the members are too few for the lamb (Exodus 12:3,4).  This proves that “holy convocation” does not mean to assemble, but rather to keep the Feast days “HOLY.”  Some Israelites call attention to the fact that because Israelites were Commanded to ”…turn in the morning and go into their tents”  (Deuteronomy 16:5-7) that this is proof of an assembly.  Those Israelite families that joined with others are the ones GOD Commanded to return to their tents.

 

The Holy ONE of Israel DOES NOT contradict HIMSELF!  HE would not COMMAND us to “Rest” on the Sabbath Day of Rest and also Command us unequivocally to “abide ye every man in your place on the seventh day,” and then confuse us by telling us to “assemble” on the “rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD.”  This would make absolutely no sense whatsoever.  Therefore, if the Holy ONE of Israel said don’t bear a burden on the Sabbath Day of Rest (Jeremiah 17:21,22) and that our asses (used for travel) had to also rest, then for sure we have to “abide in our places…on the seventh day” and leave our horses and cars parked.  And walking to any meeting place for “Sabbath Service” is out of the question all because GOD’s Seventh Day is specifically to be kept as a DAY of  “COMPLETE REST” – Shabatone (as is written in Hebrew) in our places – wherever we are at the time of the Holy Seventh Day.

 

It would indeed appear to be acceptable that the Sabbath is for coming together to worship YIHOVAH, but that’s not what GOD HIMSELF has ordained.  HE said to stay in our place and rest on this Holy Day.  Hence, we are to keep this day Holy and do no manner of work, walking, or assembling but rather “REFRESH” ourselves as Our GOD of Israel COMMANDS us to do.  Therefore, getting dressed and traveling to a meeting place on GOD’s Holy Sabbath is not only a real hassle but is without a doubt breaking HIS Law – not to mention that paying tolls or fares for public transportation to get there is an even greater sin.   The wise will not permit ANYONE to entice them to err.  Know GOD’s LAW for yourselves, and make sure that you fully understand exactly what we must do accordingly and as it is written, which means to ”obey the voice of the LORD thy God, and do his commandments and his statutes, which I command thee this day” (Deuteronomy 27:10).  Unequivocally, we must return to Our Holy ONE of Israel and return to the teachings of Moses – not what we assume, not what folks are so-called “inspired” to do, and not what’s according to the imaginations of our evil hearts but precisely as GOD’s Prophet Moses was Commanded to teach us.

 

“He [King Hezekiah] trusted in the LORD God of Israel; so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor any that were before him.

 

“For he clave to the LORD, and departed not from following him, but kept his commandments, WHICH THE LORD COMMANDED MOSES.”   II Kings 18:5,6

 

Therefore, we, too, must adhere to what the Holy ONE Commanded Moses to teach us, which in this case is about abiding in our places on HIS Holy Sabbath Day of Rest.

 

“And the LORD said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?

 

“See, for that the LORD hath given you the Sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; ABIDE YE EVERY MAN IN HIS PLACE ON THE SEVENTH DAY.”  Exodus 16:28,29

 

These two verses tell us to prepare our Sabbath Day of Rest “meal” on the Sixth Day before sundown, and stay in our places on the Seventh Day for its observance in Righteousness.  And the following verse reminds us again to keep HIS Sabbath Day of Rest “as I commanded your fathers,” i.e., according to Exodus 16:29 and the other Laws of the Sabbath.  Hence, we must keep GOD’s LAW just as the Prophet Moses Commanded (Deuteronomy 10:13), and at that time, the Children of Israel DID NOT ASSEMBLE for any manner of Seventh Day Sabbath (of Rest) Service.

 

“Neither carry forth a burden out of your houses on the Sabbath day, neither do ye any work, but HALLOW YE THE SABBATH DAY, as I commanded your fathers.”

Jeremiah 17:22  (Caps. are mine.)

 

“But if ye will not hearken unto me to hallow the Sabbath day, and not to bear burden, EVEN ENTERING IN AT THE GATES OF JERUSALEM ON THE SABBATH DAY; then will I kindle a fire in the gates thereof, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem, and it shall not be quenched.” Jeremiah 17:27

 

Living by the LAW is the ONLY Way the Nation of Israel can be governed and can live Righteously. 

 

Accordingly, if the future King of Israel, the SEED of the renown King David, will be obedient to observe “ALL” of GOD’s Book of the Law and live by it (AS He IS COMMANDED), use Righteous Judgment (Jeremiah 33:15), and reign to EXALT the GOD of Israel, then unequivocally, he will enforce the COMMANDMENT to “abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.”

 

If “ALL” GOD’s COMMANDMENTS are sure, then for sure, we must give credence to Exodus 16:29 and abide in our places on GOD’s HOLY Seventh Day of Complete REST as we are COMMANDED TO DO!

 

“He hath shewed his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen. The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are sure.”   Psalm 111:7

 

GOD’s Holy Sabbath Day of REST is not only one of HIS Greatest WORKS of all time, but this Holy Day is an extraordinary ANNIVERSARY and “SIGN” between this Most High GOD, the CREATOR and HIS Chosen People, the Children of Israel!

 

“Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.”   Exodus 31:17,18

 

Since we know for a fact that GOD’s Holy Seventh Day Sabbath is a “Sign” between HIM and Israel, why take any chance to profane it?  Every passage about the Holy Sabbath of COMPLETE Rest stands strong in support of GOD’s Commandment to abide in our places on the Seventh Day (Exodus 16:29) – ever last one of them – including the passage in Jeremiah where we are Commanded to “Take heed to yourselves, and bear no burden on the Sabbath day, nor bring it in by the gates of Jerusalem;”  Jeremiah 17:21   (Please read verses 21 to 27.)

 

Perhaps the wise thing to do would be to define the word “burden.”  But more importantly, we need to determine whether or not Exodus 16:29 is a Commandment or not.  And if it is determined to be one, then we should Fear the GOD of Israel and be obedient to what HE has Commanded of us.

 

“But the LORD, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt with great power and a stretched out arm, him shall ye fear, and him shall ye worship, and to him shall ye do sacrifice.  And the statutes, and the ordinances, and the law, and the commandment, which he wrote for you, he shall observe to do for ever more; and ye shall not fear other gods.”   II Kings 17:36,37

 

Why must we debate that which is clearly written for us to do and for very good reason, if we will only consider and think about it?  The Holy ONE wants us to be first to observe HIS weekly Anniversary of Creation, which is to keep HIS Holy Seventh day at REST, as HE did, in order that we might be REFRESHED!  

 

“In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land.”   Jeremiah 33:15

 

Neither will this King who will be established by the All-Mighty GOD of Israel pick and choose nor add to or diminish from GOD’s LAW.   And not under any circumstances will he be influenced to follow the imaginations of his heart.  But rather, he will insure that GOD’s Book of the Law will be respected, honored, and lived for GOD’s Holy Name’s Sake, and for the sake of HIS Righteousness and Peace on GOD’s Earth.

 

"Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth."   Jeremiah 23:5

 

 It will be in the king’s heart to follow, do, and enforce GOD’s Book of the Law and Judge Righteously, so that people will keep it, as it is WRITTEN in order that those who remain after “The Day of the LORD” will serve the Holy ONE of Israel with “ONE CONSENT” (Zephaniah 3:9). 

 

“And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth: with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.”   Isaiah 11:1 - 5

 

“And keep the charge of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself:

 

“That the LORD may continue his word which he spake concerning me, saying, If thy children take heed to their way, to walk before me in truth with all their heart and with all their soul, there shall not fail thee (said he) a man on the throne of Israel.”   I Kings 2:3,4

 

“And the word of the LORD came to Solomon, saying,

 

Concerning this house which thou art in building, if thou wilt walk in my statutes, and execute my judgments, and keep all my commandments to walk in them; then will I perform my word with thee, which I spake unto David thy father:

 

“And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will not forsake my people Israel.”   I Kings 6:11 – 13

 

The SEED of King David, who will reign in GOD’s Holy City, Jerusalem, will know that in keeping of this LAW is EVERLASTING Salvation and Exaltation of the Most High GOD of Israel and of HIM ALONE.  And make no mistakes about it!  Therefore, given the LAW to abide by “ALL” of GOD’s COMMANDMENTS, then we have to believe that this GOD-Fearing King of Israel will NOT dismiss Exodus 16:29.

 

“And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites:

 

“And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them:

 

“That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel.”   Deuteronomy 18 - 20

 

“The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do ALL the words of this law.”   Deuteronomy 29:29

 

Some Israelites feel that it was acceptable to travel to Jerusalem on GOD’s Holy Sabbath Day of Rest during the days of our forefathers and use Ezekiel 46th Chapter to support their premise.  But given Jeremiah 17:21,22,27 and Ezekiel 46:12, we can see that this is not true.  Hence, we must HALLOW GOD’s Sabbath Day of Rest and abide in our places just as Our Holy ONE of Israel COMMANDED OUR FATHERS!

 

Significantly, in the beginning when the Holy ONE of Israel established this Sabbath Day of COMPLETE REST and when HE clearly COMMANDED the Children of Israel in the Wilderness to observe this Holy Day, HE MADE NO EXCEPTIONS! 

 

“Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.”   Genesis 2:1 - 3

 

“And he said unto them, This is that which the LORD hath said, Tomorrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD: bake that which ye will bake today, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.

 

“See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.”   Exodus 16:23,29

 

The wise, obedient ones understand the great importance of observing this Seventh Day of Rest exactly as GOD Commanded and will not add to or diminish from this Law of the “Blessed,” “Sanctified,” and “Holy” Seventh Day Sabbath. 

 

If we are to be a light to the World to Exalt the Most High GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, FROM JERUSALEM then we must exemplify GOD’s Word as it is written in HIS Book of the Law.  YIHOVAH won’t have it any other way!  This is the only way that we can become the Righteous Ones who will reflect GOD’s Righteous Ways, i.e., be the Remnant that will be found worthy that YIHOVAH will call (Joel 2:32).  These are the Ones who will have GOD’s LAW and HIS Spirit in their hearts.  These are the Ones who will usher in GOD’s Holy Kingdom on this Earth.

 

And if we are to represent the Most High GOD of Abraham, we have no choice but to keep, proclaim, teach, live, and do GOD’s LAW, again, as best we can.  One would think that as much as we have suffered and as hard as we must labor at work and at home, that we would be too happy to “Rest” on GOD’s Holy Sabbath Day.  Not so!  Some of us will drive our cars and even take public transportation on GOD’s Seventh Day, profaning HIS Holy Seventh Day, and think that they are pleasing the Holy ONE of Israel.  Where is the FEAR OF THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL to be obedient to HIS Commandments???

 

There is a “correct” time, manner, and WAY to serve and worship YIHOVAH, and HE explained all this to us when our forefathers were in the Wilderness and nothing Our GOD Commanded of us has changed since that time, thus GOD’s reason for saying “as I commanded your fathers.”  Coming out of Egypt, a country replete with all manner of idol worship, our forefathers would need all the teaching possible to learn exactly how to live and do righteously in order to please the Holy ONE of Israel.  It is Our GOD that decides this manner and time and what it takes to make us HIS Holy People. 

 

Saul lost the Kingdom all because he thought it would be all right for him to do a good deed - to offer a burnt offering in making supplication to the Holy ONE of Israel.  Think about this: what could be greater than to give Thanks and Praise to the GOD of Israel for HIS Mercy and Help in a time of need?  Isn’t this what Saul did when he offered his sacrifice unto GOD?  But Saul went against GOD’s Commandment.  It’s the duty of the Priests to conduct offerings and sacrifices: Exodus 27th through 29th Chapters.  And notice what Samuel told Saul after he took it upon himself to sacrifice to the Holy ONE of Israel:

 

“…Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord?  Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

 

“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.  Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.”   I Samuel 15:22,23

 

Another incident that was done in good faith but proved to be a grave mistake was when Uzzah did not heed GOD’s Commandment that the Levites should take charge of all things pertaining to HIS Ministry (Numbers 1:50,51).   Uzzah, who was not a Levite, “put forth his hand to the ark of God and took hold of it; for the oxen shook it,” and after doing so, GOD killed him (II Samuel 6:6,7).

 

Therefore, let’s think about all that we decide to do on GOD’s Holy Sabbath Day of Rest because we really should not be doing too much of anything except to “Rest,” read, eat, and sleep.  As we know breaking GOD’s Holy Seventh Day of Complete REST is punishable by death!  And if our leaders advise us to do otherwise, i.e., to drive/travel to “assemble” on the day that Our Holy ONE of Israel tells us to “Rest,” then they feed us the thoughts of their hearts and not GOD’s Word from HIS Book of the Law. 

 

“But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people:  and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.”   Jeremiah 7:23

 

How is it possible that “holy convocation” can cause so much confusion?  In my opinion it all has to do with translation and interpretation.  Consider the following information I found in a book entitled World Religions From Ancient History to the Present, pp. 423, which certainly explains the reason for the discrepancy in this term:

 

“The word ‘church’ (ecclesia) means ‘an assembly of people.’  It was used in the Greek Septuagint version of the Old Testament to translate the Hebrew word for the assembly, congregation, or people of God.”

 

“Ecclesia was a word meaning "gathering of the called out ones" (or on today's terms "church") in many contexts in Ancient Greek, giving rise to many derivatives (e.g. Spanish iglesia, "church"), and can refer to:

 

Ecclesia (Church), the Christian Church, which is composed of Ecclesia Militans (the "Church Militant"), and Ecclesia Triumphans (the "Church Triumphant").

 

Ecclesia (ancient Athens), the popular assembly in ancient Athens.

 

Ecclesia (sociology of religion), a concept in the typology of religion.

 

The Ecclesia, the healing temple of The Rosicrucian Fellowship at Mount Ecclesia.”

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ecclesia

 

As well, it should come as a surprise that “holy convocation” is only mentioned in Exodus, Leviticus, and Numbers and not in any other books of the “Old Testament.”

 

Note also:

“Septuagint - What is It?

Septuagint (sometimes abbreviated LXX) is the name given to the Greek translation of the Jewish Scriptures. The Septuagint has its origin in Alexandria, Egypt and was translated between 300-200 BC. Widely used among Hellenistic Jews, this Greek translation was produced because many Jews spread throughout the empire were beginning to lose their Hebrew language. The process of translating the Hebrew to Greek also gave many non-Jews a glimpse into Judaism. According to an ancient document called the Letter of Aristeas, it is believed that 70 to 72 Jewish scholars were commissioned during the reign of Ptolemy Philadelphus to carry out the task of translation. The term “Septuagint” means seventy in Latin, and the text is so named to the credit of these 70 scholars.

Septuagint - Influence on Christianity

The Septuagint was also a source of the Old Testament for early Christians during the first few centuries AD. Many early Christians spoke and read Greek, thus they relied on the Septuagint translation for most of their understanding of the Old Testament. The New Testament writers also relied heavily on the Septuagint, as a majority of Old Testament quotes cited in the New Testament are quoted directly from the Septuagint (others are quoted from the Hebrew texts). Greek church fathers are also known to have quoted from the Septuagint. Even today, the Eastern Orthodox Church relies on the Septuagint for its Old Testament teachings. Some modern Bible translations also use the Septuagint along side Hebrew manuscripts as their source text.”

For those who, for whatever unbelievable reason, find it difficult to trust wholeheartedly in the Most High GOD of Israel and HIS Book of the Law, then wait until HE gives us Pastors according to HIS Heart:

 

“Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you:  and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:

 

“AND I WILL GIVE YOU PASTORS ACCORDING TO MINE HEART, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.”   Jeremiah 3:14,15

 

Until that time, seek GOD’s Counsel and live by HIS Book of the Law AS IT IS WRITTEN for then we CANNOT go wrong!

 

*****

 

WE MUST PUT OUR GOD BACK INTO OUR LIVES –

WE HAVE NO CHOICE,

AND THERE IS BUT ONE WAY TO DO IT!

 

"... the Lord, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt with great power and a stretched out arm, him shall ye fear, and him shall ye worship, and to him shall ye do sacrifice.

 

"And the statutes, and the ordinances, and the law, and the commandment, which he wrote for you, ye shall observe to do for evermore; and ye shall not fear other gods.

 

"And the covenant that I have made with you ye shall not forget; neither shall ye fear other gods.

 

"But the Lord your God ye shall fear; and he shall deliver you out of the hand of all your enemies."    II Kings 17:36 – 39

 

“And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.”   Deuteronomy 8:2

 

“And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,

 

“To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?”   Deuteronomy 10:12,13

 

“For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him;”  Deuteronomy 11:22

 

See and know that we will go into another WILDERNESS during these latter days and there Our GOD will AGAIN prove Israel to see if we will be obedient to HIS Laws and Commandments – Ezekiel 20:34 – 38.

"As for God, his way is perfect:  the word of the Lord is tried: 

he is a buckler to all those that trust in him."

Psalm 18:30

 

"Put me in remembrance:  let us plead together: 

declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.”  

Isaiah 43:26

 

As we read this Calendar from one Sabbath of Rest to another and from one Feast Day to another, I pray that the Most High GOD of Israel will lead us all to HIS Paths of Righteousness for HIS Praise, Fame, and Glory and for HIS Holy Name’s Sake.

Should the Readings prove to be lengthy for the Holy Days, then consider reading them throughout the rest of the week.

 

Please be aware that all GOD’s Feast Days, including the New Moons, are determined by the New Moon Crescents “Sighted” from the Middle East.  Often times, the Moon Crescent is seen in the States before it is visible from the Jerusalem/Jordan/Middle East region causing Israelites in the States to start the Feast Days a day BEFORE Israelites in the Land of Israel.  As you can see, this makes no sense.  Hence, it is our suggestion that everyone await the New Moon Crescent “Sighting” from Jerusalem/Israel/Jordan before starting GOD’s Feast Days.

“I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another,

neither my praise to graven images.

Behold,

the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare:

before they spring forth I tell you of them. Sing unto the LORD a new song,

and his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea,

and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.

Isaiah 44:8

 

“But thus saith the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered:

for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee,

and I will save thy children.

 

And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh;

and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine:

and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer,

the mighty One of Jacob.”

Isaiah 49:25,26

 

“Behold, the Lord GOD will help me; who is he that shall condemn me?

lo, they all shall wax old as a garment; the moth shall eat them up.

*GOD's Feast Days and SUGGESTIONS as to how one might observe these Holy Days:

 

“Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose;

 

in the feast of unleavened bread,

and

in the feast of weeks,

and

in the feast of tabernacles:

 

and they shall not appear before the LORD empty:

 

“Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD thy God which he hath given thee.”

Deuteronomy 16:16,17

 

- Passover/Pesach, Leviticus 23:5 - 8: GOD spared (Passed Over) Israel’s Firstborn but destroyed the Firstborn Egyptians and then DELIVERED the Israelites out of Egypt, and in the process made an Everlasting Holy Name for HIMSELF.

 

SURPRISINGLY, some Hebrew Israelite leaders teach that we cannot observe Passover in exile – all because this is one of the Feast Days that the Holy ONE Commanded that we observe in Jerusalem (Exodus 23:14 – 17).  I might add that some also believe that we would be sinning if we observed Passover in exile.  All along the Most High GOD of Israel told our forefathers in the Wilderness that there is a place that HE would choose (Jerusalem) for them to bring their offerings, sacrifices, and tithes (Deuteronomy 12:11,12).  Albeit, the Children of Israel kept the Passover not just in Egypt, but they also observed this most sensational Holy, Feast Day and Week in the Wilderness according to all the rites of it (Numbers 9:1 – 5).  

 

Please note:  GOD told Moses to speak unto all the congregation of Israel to keep up the sheep or lamb until the fourteenth day and to kill it in the evening (Exodus 12:1 – 6).  That which should be realized is that if only the Priests, the Levites, were supposed to kill all the lambs/goats at this time, then there would not have been enough of them to go around to every Israelite family killing the animals in the evening. Therefore, the killing of the lamb/goat of the first year was the responsibility of probably the male head of the household in each family.  Hence, this is the reason that Passover is included for observance in this Hebrew Calendar. 

 

Days before Passover, clean the house of all leavening (baking powder, yeast, and baking soda and their by-products), and before Erev (the evening of) Passover be sure that it is all removed from the house because for seven days, we cannot eat any breads, crackers, cookies, cakes, etc. containing leavening, and they must not be found in our dwellings.  Read the ingredients of your vitamins carefully for “yeast,” and check your toothpaste, as many brands are nowadays including “baking soda” in the toothpaste to aid in the removal of plaque.  

 

On the evening of the 14th at sundown, put the blood of your lamb on the doorposts if you have them or otherwise around the front door – top and sides.  Then, immediately start to roast/bake/broil this lamb using only salt for seasoning (Leviticus 2:13) and WITHOUT any water.  When the lamb or goat is done, eat it in haste with bitter herbs (horseradish if it’s available) and unleavened bread.  If any lamb/goat remains be sure to burn it before daybreak.

 

On the 15th day of the First Hebrew Month, we are to observe the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which is when we cook a meal of our choice but with unleavened bread.  See Exodus 12th Chapter for specific details.  Although the First and the Seventh Days are the Holy Days of this week, we are Commanded to eat unleavened bread on all seven of these days.   Many Israelites cook a different meal each day of this week for fear that fermentation might result with leftovers.  Also, there are many Israelites who drink wine on this occasion, but I do not, and the reason is that wine is also known to be a leavening agent.  And all wines contain yeast whether it was added or made on its own during processing.  I have heard of a recipe for a very delicious cake made with wine and it rises so fine.  The cake is a “Palm-wine Cake.”  I also remove all products containing vinegar from my home during Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

 

“In the First Month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.”   Exodus 12:18

 

VERY IMPORTANT:  Before the men and boys (all males) of the Nation of Israel and the Stranger (joined unto them) can take part in Passover, they must be CIRCUMCISED (Exodus 12:44,48)! “…for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof.”

 

“This is my covenant which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised.

 

“And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.

 

“And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed.

 

“He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised:  and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.”   Genesis 17:10 - 13

***

 

- The Feast of Weeks/Shavuote, Leviticus 23:9 – 22: (without a date) is specifically a Holy Observance to give thanks and Praise to the GOD of Israel after we have gathered in the "Firstfruits of the land of Israel for a "freewill offering."  Please see Leviticus 23:10-21 and Isaiah 62:9.  Therefore, if we are not living in the land of Israel and producing our own crops in the Land that GOD gave to the Children of Israel, then there is no way we can observe this Feast Day.   How can we celebrate the “Firstfruits” with the defiled bread (Ezekiel 4:13) of Gentile lands?  And if we resort to making up a date to observe the Feast of Weeks, then without a doubt, we would be sinning against GOD’s Law that Commands us not to add to or diminish from HIS Law (Deuteronomy 12:32). The Holy ONE of Israel distinctly said, “Seven weeks shalt thou number unto thee: begin to number the seven weeks from such time as thou beginnest to put the sickle to the corn” (Deuteronomy 16:9).

 

"Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year.  Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:)  And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field. Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before the Lord GOD."   Exodus 23:14 – 17

 

"Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose [JERUSALEM]; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the LORD empty:"   Deuteronomy 16:16

 

Therefore, the Feast of Weeks is a day that can only be kept in the land and only in Jerusalem, at that.  Reason being, the Feast of Weeks (Shavuote) is a day that honors the Holy ONE of Israel for the blessings of the “Firstfruits” that HE has caused to manifest from the land of Israel (Leviticus 26:3,4), as well, it is the day HE wants us to eat before HIM in Jerusalem.

 

“Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest unto the priest...”   Leviticus 23:10 - 22

 

***

 

- Memorial of Blowing of Trumpets/Shabah-tone Zeek-rone Tiroo-ah, Leviticus 23:23 - 25: Keep this day Holy and Prepare a Feast.  Note that this Holy Day always falls on the New Moon.

 

***

 

- Day of Atonement (Yom Kipoor) Leviticus 23:27 - 32: This Holy Day each year is set aside for fasting (no food or water) 24 hours for our Sins against the Holy ONE of Israel.

 

“And this shall be a statute for ever unto you:  that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall afflict your souls, and do no work at all, whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger that sojourneth among you:

 

“For on that day shall the priest make an atonement for you, to cleanse you, that ye may be clean from all your sins before the LORD.

 

“It shall be a Sabbath of rest unto you, and ye shall afflict your souls, by a statute for ever.”   Leviticus 16:29 – 31

 

TO “FAST” MEANS TO AFFLICT OUR SOULS (Ezra 8:22).

 

***

 

- Feast of Tabernacles/Chag Hah-Soo-cote (Dwelling in Booths) Leviticus 23:33 - 44:  Keep this observance Holy and Prepare a Feast for the First and Eighth Days – even every day of this week would serve it well.  Unlike the Feast of Weeks, this Holy Day was given dates, and for that reason it is observed in our enemies’ lands.   However, again, there can be no “Ingathering” (Exodus 23:16) in the lands of our captors for which Our GOD would have any respect.  And the reason is that we must honor the place that Our GOD has chosen (Deuteronomy 12:11) for HIS Name, offerings, and much rejoicing.  We are able to observe the Commandment to dwell in BOOTHS (Leviticus 23:43) just as our forefathers did if we so desire.  At this and all other Holy Days we can acknowledge our transgressions and pray to the Holy ONE for forgiveness of our sins and the abominations we have committed against HIM.  We can Bless and give much thanks to the Most High for keeping us safe, healthy, and with food and shelter.  We can pray to HIM for Deliverance, sing HIS Praises, Exalt HIM in Truth and in Righteousness.  And above all, we can pray that Our Holy ONE calls attention to HIMSELF, and declare HIS Law as being the only true Path to walk, and then we can TAKE IT (this Divine Path)!

 

“SING PRAISES TO THE LORD, which dwelleth in Zion:  DECLARE AMONG THE PEOPLE HIS DOINGS.”    Psalm 9:11

 

“…saith the Lord GOD, there shall all the house of Israel, all of them in the land , serve me; there will I accept them, and there will I require your offerings, and the firstfruits of your oblations, with all your holy things.

 

“I will accept you with your sweet savor, when I bring you out from the people, and gather you out of the countries wherein ye have been scattered; and I will be sanctified in you before the heathen.”   Ezekiel 20:40,41

 

Three times in the year, Israelites are Commanded to keep a feast unto the Holy ONE of Israel:  Passover, the Feast of Weeks, and the Feast of Tabernacles.  For the time being, most of us can’t observe these Feast Days in the Land of Israel because we are under Gentile control and are not accepted as being Israelites by White “Jews.”  But with our Hebrew Calendar and dates listed in Leviticus 23rd Chapter, we can do the best we can to Exalt and Praise the Holy ONE of Israel on HIS Feast Days as it has been Commanded of us to do.  And as we go about returning to the Holy ONE of Israel, we must do so without adding to or diminishing from what’s written in HIS Book of the Law.

 

“Thou camest down also upon mount Sinai, and spakest with them from heaven, and gavest them right judgments, and true laws, good statutes and commandments:

 

“And madest known unto them thy holy Sabbath, and commandedst them precepts, statutes, and laws, by the hand of Moses thy servant:”   Nehemiah 9:13,14

 

“What thing soever I command you, observe to do it:  thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.”   Deuteronomy 12:32

 

Let us pray for the fulfillment of Deuteronomy 30th Chapter - OUR RETURN TO OUR HERITAGE - for YIHOVAH to remember HIS Promises to Abraham, and for HIM to cause the World to know HIS Truth and Exalt ONLY HIM! 

 

“OH that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence,

 

“…to make thy name known to thine adversaries, that the nations may tremble at thy presence!”   Isaiah 64:1,2

 

***

 

- New Moon “Sightings:” For the First Day of each month prepare a Feast…  This is not a Shabbatone, i.e., day of Complete Rest.  We can travel on this day, but it is not a day for work and business if we can help it. 

 

Therefore, take care of all business transactions before the New Moon day.  Without question, our employers will not give us this day off every single month, but we can do the best we can to keep the New Moon Day a Feast and one that Praises, Glories, and Magnifies Our GOD and SAVIOR, the Holy ONE of Israel. 

 

“Sing aloud unto God our strength:  make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.

 

“Take a psalm and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery.

 

“Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial before your God: I am the LORD your God.”   Numbers 10:10

 

“Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.”   Psalm 81:1 - 3

 

“Likewise the people of the land shall worship at the door of this gate before the LORD in the sabbaths and in the new moons.”   Ezekiel 46:3

 

(The Sabbaths mentioned in the above verse are not about Shabatones, GOD’s Seventh Day Sabbaths of “COMPLETE REST,” but are a reference to Passover, Shavuote, Memorial of Blowing of Trumpets, and the Feast of Tabernacles.)

 

As previously stated, this Hebrew Calendar uses the New Moon “Sightings” to determine the First Day of each month in conformity with Genesis 1:14.  This verse requires that we use the “lights in the firmament of the heavens…for signs, and seasons, and for days, and years.”  Another passage that supports GOD’s Commandment that we use these “lights” as “signs” (something that must be “visible” if we must use it as a “sign”) is found in Psalm:

 

“To him that made great lights:  for his mercy endureth for ever:

 

“The sun to rule by day:  for his mercy endureth for ever:

 

“The moon and stars to rule by night:  for his mercy endureth forever.”  

Psalm 136:7 – 9

 

When the sun and moon rule, they are clearly seen to be SHINING!  If Our Holy ONE of Israel gives us the moon to rule by night, we surely will be able to SEE it, and if we SEE the Crescent, then surely, it serves as a “SIGN” for New Moon “Sightings” to determine the First Day of each month.  Hence, the reason, this Hebrew Calendar uses the “Sightings” of the New moon and not the “Dark Side” as being the First Day of each month (as do the European Jews and, yes, some Israelites).  And in this manner the moon’s “LIGHT” will indeed establish the “sign” for seasons and days (months) while the sun will establish the “sign” for solar years.  If you have ever taken the time to watch the sun “set” or “rise,” you will notice that each day/month it sets and rises in a different place on the horizon.  And it’s likewise with the moon.  This, too, is interesting information for those of us involved in studying the Hebrew Calendar.  I might add that a sundial should also prove to be instrumental in this study if used in conjunction with each New Moon “Sighting” and watched for one whole solar year.

 

Some people question whether the New Moons should be kept as Feast Days.  Numbers 10:10 and 28:11; Psalm 81:1 – 4, in my opinion, are clear on the New Moon being a day that we can and should observe as a Feast but not “Holy Convocation,” as I have not yet found it to be of this high esteem.   Throughout our history, we called “feasts” on many an occasion, so why not for the New Moon as did our forefathers?  And why not for a day of Thanksgiving and gladness for GOD’s Blessings upon us?

 

Lot prepared a Feast for the Angels-Genesis 19:3; There was a Feast when Isaac was weaned-Genesis 21:8; Samson made a Feast-Judges 14:10,12; David’s Feast-II Samuel 3:20;Solomon’s Feast to all his servants-I Kings 3:15, and the list goes on.  Under these circumstances, we are within the Law to call for a Feast every New Moon and give all the Glory to the Holy ONE of Israel for HIS Manifold Mercies, forgiveness and making this day possible.  BLESSED BE THE HOLY NAME OF THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL!

 

“All the days of the afflicted are evil:  but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast.”  Proverbs 15:15

 

It would be my pleasure to be joined with Israelites and even the Stranger to call a Feast every New Moon for the Magnification and Exaltation of the Most High GOD of Israel.  Actually, I look forward to it!

 

Although the New Moons are not days of “Rest,” the Holy One has singled them out to be observed… Isaiah 66:23, Ezekiel 46:1, Amos 8:5

 

“Saying, When will the new moon be gone that we may sell corn?…”   Amos 8:5

 

I Samuel 20th Chapter provides evidence of David and Jonathan speaking about what was clearly feasting on the New Moon.   In II Kings 4:22; Isaiah 66:23; and Ezekiel 46:1, references are made to the New Moons and the Sabbaths (Feast Days) as being days of significance.  

 

In several other passages, including GOD’s Law, the New Moon is categorized as a special day, which suggests that we should not observe it as a regular day. 

 

“Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the BEGINNINGS OF YOUR MONTHS, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial before your God:  I am the LORD your God.”   Numbers 10:10   [Caps. are mine.]

 

“And in the BEGINNING OF YOUR MONTHS ye shall offer a burnt offering unto the LORD; two young bullocks, and one ram, seven lambs of the first year without spot;”   Numbers 28:11

 

It should be realized that it was the duty of the Priests to minister in GOD’s Temple, as well as administer the offerings of ALL the Children of Israel.  The following passages detail just how GOD’s Priests are to present “OUR” offerings before the Holy ONE of Israel:  Exodus 29:28; Leviticus 7:8; and Leviticus 7:29 – 31,38.

 

“…when will the new moon be gone, that we may SELL corn?”  Amos 8:5

 

Amos provides sound evidence that Israelites did not “sell” on the New Moon, thereby, this is giving the First Day of the month greater significance than our regular work/week days.

 

“And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.”   Isaiah 66:23

 

(Again, the above Sabbaths mentioned are not a reference to GOD’s Seventh Day of COMPLETE REST.)

 

We can deduce from II Kings 4:23 that on the New Moons people visited our Holy Men (GOD’s Ministers, the Priests). 

 

“And he said, Wherefore wilt thou go to him to day?  It is neither new moon, nor Sabbath.  And she said, it shall be well.”

 

“Thus saith the Lord GOD; The gate of the inner court that looketh toward the east shall be shut the six working days; but on the Sabbath it shall be opened, and in the day of the new moon IT SHALL BE OPENED.”  Ezekiel 46:1

 

These “Sabbaths” mentioned above are a reference to the Feast Days – not the Seventh Day Sabbaths.

 

“Sing aloud unto God our strength:  make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.

 

“Talk a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery.

 

“Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.

 

“For this was a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob.”  Psalm 81:1 – 4

[I have to believe that the “law” this verse is referring to is Numbers 10:10 and 28:11.]

 

Probably, the Scripture that most determines and clarifies the fact that our New Moons are Feast Days is Ezekiel 45:17:

 

“And it shall be the prince’s part to give burnt offerings, and meat offerings, and drink offerings, in the feasts, and in the NEW MOONS, and in the Sabbaths, in ALL SOLEMNITIES of the house of Israel:  he shall prepare the sin offering, and the meat offering, and the burnt offering, and the peace offerings, to make reconciliation for the HOUSE OF ISRAEL.”   (Caps. are mine.)

 

Unequivocally, these “SOLEMNITIES” mentioned above include our New Moons. 

 

“Likewise the people of the land shall worship at the door of this gate before the LORD in the Sabbaths [Feasts – NOT 7th Day Sabbaths*] and in the NEW MOONS.”   Ezekiel 46:3   (Brackets are mine.)

 

“Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; that they may be to you for

a memorial before your God:  I am the LORD your God.”  

Numbers 10:10

 

Thereby, this justifies the First Day of each month being our Feast Day to serve and worship Our GOD of Abraham.

 

Given all the above Scripture, there is no question that the New Moon is of greater significance than we realize.

 

Again, for the record, it should be appreciated that our Feast Days are also known as “Sabbaths” – Holy Convocations (Leviticus 23:37).   Please read Leviticus 23:24 and Leviticus 23:39.   And when we go to the Temple on these Sabbath Feast Days, then we will be carrying a burden – our offerings to the Holy ONE of Israel (Isaiah 66:20).

 

Try hard not to conduct any business on the First Day of each month – the New Moon (Crescent).  Of course your employers will not permit you to take off every New Moon, but at least make an effort to keep this day as free from financial and business transactions as possible. 

 

*Leviticus 23:24,39 (Sabbaths of Feasts)

For more detailed information on GOD's appointed Holy Days, please read Leviticus 16th and 23rd Chapters, Deuteronomy 16th Chapter, and Psalm 81:1 - 10.

 

Please know that we are permitted to cook on GOD’s Holy Feast Days (including the New Moons) with the exception of the Sabbath Day of Rest and the Day of Atonement.  Even though we are permitted to cook on the Feast Days, in most cases, I prepare much of my Feast Day “meal” before it starts in order to enjoy the Holy Day.  As we Sisters and Brother-cooks know, cooking can truly be a chore if we are making it a “Feast” with all the veggies, breads, cakes, pies, meats, etc., etc.  And just for the record, I usually try to have lamb for the Seventh Day Sabbath and for each of the Feast Days or one of the other meats used for offerings.

 

May the Holy ONE of Israel bless each and everyone of us with the wisdom and knowledge necessary to observe HIS Righteous Ways for HIS Holy Name’s Sake.  And may we Fear Our GOD of Abraham, so as to ensure obedience to HIS Commandments and LAWS ALWAYS.

 

“And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me for ever, for the good of them, and of their children after them:

 

“And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me.”  Jeremiah 32:30,40

 

O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD IS GOOD

TO ALL WHO ARE OBEDIENT TO HIS LAW!

FINAL NOTE:

 

This is my NINTH year preparing this Hebrew Calendar, and I give ALL PRAISES TO THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL for giving me the wisdom and knowledge needed to produce this wonderful date book that enables us to learn about our Biblical history throughout the year.  I have found it to be a most valuable tool for learning about the Most High GOD of Abraham and Moses, HIS LAW, and HIS WORD to HIS Prophets.  Sometimes, I’ll make mistakes here and there, but with the help of the Holy ONE, I make less and less each year.  

 

“Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands,

THAT I MAY BE GLORIFIED.”

Isaiah 60:21

 

I, personally, have grown to rely on “Our” Calendar for significant readings and notes, and I look forward to reading GOD’s Divine LAW throughout the year, as well as HIS WORD to HIS Prophets on the special Holy Days that YIHOVAH has designated for HIS Praise and Glory.   So often the Holy ONE of Israel uses HIS Word in Scripture to communicate with us, and for that reason, I urge everyone to read GOD’s LAW and HIS WORD to HIS Prophets regularly – preferably daily.

 

“…Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.”   II Chronicles 20:20

 

It would be exceptional for us to come together during the week to discuss each week's TORAH Readings in a designated Chat Room on Yahoo Messenger” or on “Paltalk” that our wonderful Brother Yehudah, Yehudah@wrightwebdesigns.com, has set up for us.  And by all means, please cross-reference these Scriptures with others of which you are aware to further your understanding of what’s written. 

 

Due to an adjustment in the new calendar year, some of the entries are rather lengthy.  Under these circumstances, when you do not have the time to read all the posted Scripture on a given day, then save some for the rest of the week.   It is also most important for me to emphasize the fact that by no means should we let these TORAH Readings be the only Scripture read throughout the year.  The “Old Testament” is the story of our life and heritage, and we should be knowledgeable of all its contents be it positive or negative.  Therefore, in addition to the TORAH Readings, it is very important for us to heed and to be aware of “Thus saith the Lord” that is found in GOD’s WORD to HIS Prophets: Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Hosea, Joel, Amos, and Malachi to name a few.  There is so much to be gained from reading all these books including Joshua, Judges, Samuel, Kings, Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, and Hosea to Malachi.  Every time I read GOD’s Word, regardless of how many times I’ve read it, I learn something new, and, as a result, knowledge is increased.  I am encouraged to start reading from the first chapter unto the last rather than skip around.  In this manner, the total picture is made quite clear for me.   There is no question that to know GOD, we must first know HIS Book of the Law and HIS Word to HIS Prophets.   And to attain wisdom, we must Fear and Trust in the Holy ONE of Israel and live and do the Laws, Statutes, and Judgments HE ordained for us (if we ever hope to return to our heritage and fulfill prophecy):

 

“Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the Lord my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it.

 

“Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is wise and understanding people.”   Deuteronomy 4:5,6

 

“And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory:  and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name.”   Isaiah 62:2

 

“Put me in remembrance:  let us plead together...”   Isaiah 43:26

 

With each day that Our Holy ONE of Israel gives us, LET US REMEMBER:

 

- To pray for forgiveness for our sins (Jeremiah 14:20,21; Hosea 5:15)

- Our Dietary Laws (Leviticus 11th Chapter; Deuteronomy 14th Chapter)

- To NOT eat any manner of blood (Leviticus 7:26)

- To wear fringe to remind us of GOD’s Commandments (Numbers 15:38 – 41)

- Jerusalem and to pray towards the place where once stood GOD’s Holy Temple  (I Kings 8th Chapter)

- To pray and cause Our GOD of Israel to remember HIS Covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob

- To pray that Our Holy ONE of Israel will soon put HIS Laws and HIS Spirit in our hearts

- To pray for our Deliverance and our return to our heritage where we will serve and worship Our GOD in Truth and in Righteousness

“Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:

 

And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God:  for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness,

and repenteth him of the evil.”

Joel 2:12,13

May the Holy ONE of Israel put HIS LAWS and HIS Spirit in our hearts and bless us with HIS Mercies as we strive to be obedient to HIS WORD, and may HE give us guidance as we seek to understand and accept HIS Truth.

 

LET US SANCTIFY AND EXALT THE MOST HIGH GOD OF ISRAEL

BEFORE THE WORLD IN RIGHTEOUSNESS AND GLORIFY HIM

AND HIS HOLY NAME AT ALL TIMES!

 

“…ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence,

 

“And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make

Jerusalem a praise in the earth.”

Isaiah 62:6,7

 

“Thus saith the LORD; Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears:  for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the LORD; and they shall come again from the land of the enemy.

 

“And there is hope in thine end, saith the LORD,

that thy children shall come again to their own border.”  

Jeremiah 31:16,17

 

The Promises of the CREATOR GOD to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are FOREVER!  Israelites only need take great heed to be obedient to all that is required for HIS Help in re-establishment of all that was sworn to the SEED of Jacob.

 

“And the LORD gave unto Israel all the land which he sware to give unto their fathers; and they possessed it, and dwelt therein.

 

“And the LORD gave them rest round about, according to all that he sware unto their fathers: and there stood not a man of all their enemies before them; the LORD delivered all their enemies into their hand.

 

“There failed not ought of any good thing which the LORD had spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass.”

Joshua 21:43 - 45

 

Our GOD of Israel searches the heart, and that being a given, let HIM find us worthy to serve and worship HIM in Righteousness!

 

“For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep,

and seek them out.”

Ezekiel 34:11

 

O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL IS GOOD!
