Isaiah 66:23 “And it shall come to pass, that from New Moon to his New Moon, and from Sabbath to his Sabbath, shall all flesh come to worship before me, says the Most High.” Well, a few weeks ago, I learned something new about the Saturday Sabbath that I’ve been observing. I’ve heard in the past that the Gregorian-Julian Calendar was different from the Jewish Calendar, but I never understood it until I watched a video a few weeks ago. I now have the understanding that the Ancient chosen people of God used the lunisolar calendar to observe the Sabbaths, New Moon, and Feast Days. If you were raised in the church, these things were never taught or observed because many Pastors think the commandments are done away with and don’t apply to them, but they will be saved by grace.
Therefore, everyone just used the Gregorian-Julian Calendar without questioning it even though the Bible is telling us to use the Lunisolar Calendar. The Gregorian-Julian Calendar is based on paganism because it has its pagan gods’ name for the days of the weeks and months. If we go to the scriptures it clearly shows that the Julian-Gregorian and the lunisolar calendars are different. Let’s read Genesis 1:14 “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.” The thing about it is that flesh and blood cannot reveal these things to you. Had it been so, many of us would have seen Christianity for what it is and would have come out of her as fast as possible. Matthew 16:17 “The Messiah replied, Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but my Father in heaven.”
When I first watched the video, I was lost and confused. I mean, how many of us read Genesis 1:14 numerous times and times again and understood what God was telling us? I read it many times, and it went right over my head until I watched the video. I’ve watched many other videos about the Gregorian-Julian Calendar and read some information about its origin and I couldn’t understand it. I’m still researching and learning more details about the lunisolar Calendar so I can observe the Sabbath and New Moon correctly. I actually, observed my first Sabbath on December 17 and New Moon on December 18 following the Lunar-Solar Calendar. It is a learning process for me. Why I choose to follow the lunisolar because John 4:24 ” God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and truth.” Aside from that, Jeremiah 10:2 -3″ Thus saith God, learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.” We also know that we are in the world but not of the world John 17:16.
Serving God will not be an easy journey because if it were, it wouldn’t only be a remnant that will be saved. What am I saying is that it will require you to give up a lot for you to serve Him especially your own will. The hardest thing for many of us we work for people to gain an income. Also, many of us are either not capable, or motivated of starting our own business, so we don’t have to be a slave to other people. Because when you work for someone, you are that company slave, and you either do what they say or hit the road Jack. Meaning, for you to keep the Sabbaths, New Moon, and all the other feasts because it requires you to set those days apart for Him. As you know, your job will not permit you to take days off here and there. So, you will have to find a career where you make your schedule where you’re in control of your it. I remember sharing the video with some others who follow the Saturday Sabbath so they could do further research and also ask God for understanding and wisdom, and their answers to me were it’s impossible to follow because of their jobs. One told me that she would continue to observe the Saturday Sabbath because the people she follows do on Saturday. Another person comments reminding me of the verse in Jubilees 6:34 “And all the children of Israel will forget and will not find the path of the years, and will forget the New Moons, and seasons, and Sabbath and they will go wrong as to all the order of the years.” As you can see they took the blue pill and called it a day.
Yes, I understand after the chosen people of God were captured and dispersed with ships to the four corners of the earth their scrolls were taken away from them. As slaves, they could not observe The New Moon, Sabbaths, or any of the feast days. Remember, every family was separated from their husbands, children, and so on. Therefore, they weren’t allowed to observe anything nor the generation after them. They lost their identity, names, and all the commandments, laws, and statutes were beating out of them. They end up serving their master’s gods and learning their ways. That’s how they lost their path of the years, and forget the New Moons, and seasons, and Sabbaths. That’s why most of the chosen people of God don’t even know if they are coming or going when it comes to instructions of the Bible. If you read Deuteronomy 28, it tells you all about it. Even though they have lost their ways, God is telling them, you can ask me for wisdom and understanding, and I will give it to you if you want it.
James 1:5″If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.” Also in Jeremiah 29:13 “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” The question you should be asking yourself is, what is more important to you? Life or death pick one because at the end of the day you will realize that nothing else matters but God. How bad do you want Him? If you read Matthew chapter six, which I did a blog on it. The Messiah was not only giving us instructions on how to pray, how not to worry about our life, but he’s telling us to seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added unto us. Matthew 16:25 “For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.”
Here is the mistake many of us are continually making is following people instead of what the word is telling us to do. 2 Timothy 2:5 “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” That’s why it is going to have to be a personal decision. You will have to choose what is more important to you. Matthew 6:21 “For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be.” So, how do you observe the lunisolar is still a learning process. I will try to explain it to you. Hopefully, I don’t confuse you. God’s Calendar is based on the Lunar. Lunar has 29.5 days in the month, but since there is not just half a day, it is counted for 30 days. Therefore, how do you get the correct Sabbath Day is after the New Moon day which is a day that should be set apart for worship, prayer, and meditation. Understand, the word Month is derived from Moon. New Moon is the first day of the month. The following day will be counted as the second day, and you will count each day and once you get to the seventh day is the Sabbath Day. Then, after the Sabbath day, another week starts just like the Gregorian-Julian calendar until the next New Moon.
It’s always four Sabbaths in the month until the next New Moon that will start the next month or New Moon as I mentioned before. That’s why you have to research it to get a better understanding, or better yet, ask God for wisdom and understanding. But this is how I see it, if you genuinely love God, you will seek the truth. The verses for reference are Genesis 1:14, Psalm 104:19 Sirach (Ecclesiasticus) 43:6-8; Enoch 77:14 (for the book of Sirach and Enoch you will find these lost book in the Apocrypha); 1 Samuel 20; Colossians 2:1-16; Joshua 6:15; There are more references that you will find. I just wanted to share these verses to start your research. I also recommend that you read Jubilee which is also in the Apocrypha. Also, you need to pray and ask God for understanding and wisdom. Otherwise, it might be difficult for you to see and understand. If you do have any additional info, please, share it.
Ecclesiastes 12:13 -14 “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For Yah shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”
With this note, I say be Blessed!
