Understanding The Concept Of
When The Day, Sabbath, and New Year Begin.
In this section, you will need to pay very close attention because this will be important for you to know. Why it’s important, it’s because you will need to understand when the day begins so you can find the correct Sabbath day and the other feasts on their appointing time. I will keep saying even throughout the whole book that if you lack wisdom, you should first seek it from our heavenly Father above. Unless God reveals the secrets of the Torah to you, you will not be able to comprehend any of the scriptures. I remember five years ago, I didn’t know anything about the commandments because I was taught that the law is done away with. Every time I would pick up the Bible to read, not only I didn’t understand anything I was reading, but I would quickly fall asleep. Guys, listen, God will not bombard you with understanding all at once. It will come little by little. I’m a living testimony of it that’s why I’m saying it. All you need to do is come empty to receive it. By coming empty, I mean to reset your mind, starting fresh as if you have never read the Bible before. Also, be humble and meek in the spirit. If you’re arrogant, you will not grow. You see, God has already given us and set all the necessary information that we need to function here on earth. But Satan, on the other hand, our greatest adversary and the author of confusion is there with his legion to deter you just to destroy you. As you should already know that Mastema or Satan is here to steal, kill, and destroy. That’s why it is important to stay connected and in prayer seeking our heavenly Father for guidance, wisdom, and understanding.
I know that every one of us knows that when anyone says the word day, they are referring to when the sun is out and shining. The word night is when the sun is down, the sun is no longer shining, it is dark, the moon is out, and can see all the stars in heaven. I mean, you get the picture. Even though we all know when it is day or night because of our physical observance, many of us still don’t know when the day begins. I know, it sounds a little bit confusing, but please, bear with me, I will explain. I used to have a problem when people will say one in the morning or better yet, as soon as it hits midnight the next day already began. I couldn’t get it to wrap around my brain because we all know that the day begins at dusk. But as I always say the enemy, Satan and his agents are the authors of confusion. One of Satan’s biggest agents is the Catholic church because they are the ones who created the Julian Gregorian calendar that is based on the sun. They are the ones I’m sure who came up with the day begins at midnight. Guys, don’t be fooled, these wicked people know the scriptures.
So, we are going to get into the scriptures to clarify. Genesis 1:3-5 “Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 And God saw the light that it was good, and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. [b]So the evening and the morning were the first day.” The part I need is in verse 5 of the last sentence. So the evening and the morning were the first day. I can’t tell you how many times I have read this verse, and it didn’t click for me. You thought that a simple sentence is easy to comprehend, but no, not so. It is not unless our heavenly Father opens your eyes and reveals it to you. God made it clear in the verse that each day, I mean, twenty-four hours starts sundown (evening) and the morning (day). What the Catholic church did is that they start the day in the second half of the night which is midnight instead of starting it at sundown. For example, Let’s say it’s Monday when the sun goes down at six-thirty, we enter the first half of the evening or night which means we have entered Tuesday night, not at midnight but six-thirty sundown (dawn).
The second half of the night starts at midnight until dusk, which means the sun starting to come out. You are entering Tuesday morning and also the first half of the day. The second half starts at noon or what we call mid-day until sundown or dawn. Combining the two completes the twenty-four hours day. Are you getting it? You have the evening from dawn to prepare your food and drink before dusk to celebrate your Sabbath day. For example, sometimes, I will wake up at four o’clock to prepare my food or warm it up before dusk. Once it’s daylight you cannot cook, make juice, go out, buy, or sell. Few verses to back it up. Exodus 35:3 “You shall kindle no fire in all your dwelling places on the Sabbath day.” Isaiah 58:13-14 “If you turn back your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on my holy day, and call the Sabbath a delight and the holy day of the Lord honorable; if you honor it, not going your own ways, or seeking your own pleasure, or talking idly; then you shall take delight in the Lord, and I will make you ride on the heights of the earth; I will feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.” Amos 8:5 “saying, “When will the New Moon be over that we may sell grain, and the Sabbath be ended that we may market wheat?”— skimping on the measure, boosting the price and cheating with dishonest scales.” Don’t forget Nehemiah 10:31. Now that you know when the day begins, you should not have any problem finding the correct Sabbath day.
Let’s move on with the lunisolar calendar. That part is not that difficult, and if you have a problem comprehending it, you should go into prayer asking our heavenly Father to give you wisdom and understanding. You should know that to keep the Sabbath, you must use the lunisolar calendar which is the calendar God created at the beginning of time. The lunisolar calendar has been with us since the beginning of creation, and all you have to do is look up. I know, at this moment those of you who have never heard of the lunisolar calendar scratching your head in confusion. Don’t panic yet, it is the easiest calendar. I will not dwell too much on it, but I will make it simple enough for you to understand. If you read the Torah also known as the Old Testament (Genesis through Deuteronomy), you will see many references to the New Moon, and it is one of the feasts that should be celebrated every month. You shouldn’t be at work but home cooking, worshiping, and reading the word with your family. Like the Sabbath day, there is no buying or selling (Amos 8:5).
New Moon is another word for New Month because Month comes from the word Moon or Mooth. New Moon is also the first day of the month. Understand that the moon recycles or restarts every month. You should be familiar with the moon phases which give you the percentage of the moon. You have the first quarter; it is what they called New Moon. The second quarter is when the moonlight reaches fifty percent. The third quarter is when it reaches one hundred percent which is called Full Moon. The fourth quarter is when it is decrease to fifty percent until it reaches zero percent. There are many apps on the moon calendar you should look into. I will refer you to a site name Old Farmers Almanac. They have the moon calendar available, and it tells you when New Moon starts and ends. It will ask you for your zip code or the city that you live in. Nonetheless, if you live in the continent of Africa, it will not work because it is only for the United States. But you can use the website timeanddate.com. You will have to put in your location to get the correct New Moon date and time. Now, we are going to some scriptures to back it up. Look, guys, you have to read the scriptures for yourself that’s why I’m providing them to you. Let’s go to Enoch 78:14 “And when it is wholly extinguished, its light is consumed in heaven; and on the first day it is called the New Moon, for on that day light is received into it (In the Cepher start reading from chapters 73-79 for a better explanation). To make it simple, once the moon becomes dark or zero percent, and when it starts to receive light from zero to .5% or 1% and up it is New Moon.
It is also the first day of the month. From that day you will start counting to seven days to get your Sabbath day. There are so many other references in the Bible, but the next verse I want to share with you is 1 Samuel 20: 24-27, “Then David hid in the field: And when the New Moon had come, the king sat down to eat the feast.Now the king sat on his seat, as at other times, on a seat by the wall. And Jonathan arose, and Abner sat by Saul’s side, but David’s place was empty. Nevertheless, Saul did not say anything that day, for he thought, “Something has happened to him; he is unclean, surely he is unclean.” And it happened the next day, the second day of the month, that David’s place was empty. And Saul said to Jonathan his son, “Why has the son of Jesse not come to eat, either yesterday or today?” So, here you see verse twenty-four which states that David hid on New Moon and didn’t show up to dine with King Saul. Then, in verse twenty-seven it says, and it happened the next day, the second day of the month which was after the New Moon. Remember, the next day starts in the evening. That is just to confirm to you that New Moon is the first day of the month as you see it in Enoch chapter seventy-eight. As I mentioned before, I’m not going to overwhelm you with too many scriptures, besides those verses that make it clear as it could be for you. Now that you know the first day of the month starts on New Moon day, and you know that the day begins in the evening as stated in Genesis 1:5 “God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.”
Let’s move to the next part of the calendar which is the New Year. I will also explain how you will find your New Year from the lunisolar calendar. To find the New Year is very simple, and I will give you the scripture for that as well. Keep in mind, that you cannot use the Julian Gregorian calendar to observe the feast days our heavenly Father gave to Moses in Leviticus chapter twenty-three. Again, the God of Avraham, Isaac, and Jacob gave the whole world a calendar that He built from the beginning of time, and it must be followed. To find when the New Year begins, all you have to do is follow the scriptures. Let’s go to Exodus 12:2 “This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you.” The simplest way I can put it is the feast of Passover, it is always celebrated at the beginning of the year or the first month of the year. The wicked change the Passover feast name and called it Easter. Easter is celebrated in the spring just like Passover. Many of you didn’t know that spring is the beginning of the year as well. If you think about it, it is when all the flowers blossom. It’s like nature restarting again fresh.
On the New Moon of that month, which falls in March, if you live in the northern hemisphere or the United States you have entered the New Year. The Passover feast follows on the fourteen days of that month. Understand, that the New Year will fall on a different month of the year because we are in different hemispheres. The continent of Africa is located in the Southern Hemisphere. Nonetheless, since Africa is where everything begins, the Garden of Eden, Jerusalem the city of great Kings, and the children of Jacob’s Promised Land are located there, if you choose to celebrate your New Year in the same month as theirs, you can. So I don’t lose you, springs begin in September for the continent of Africa, therefore, New Year begins in September. Deuteronomy 16:1 “Observe the month of Abib, and keep the Passover to the Lord your God, for in the month of Abib the Lord your God brought you out of Egypt by night.” Let’s look up the word Abib. Definition of Abib: the first month of the ancient Hebrew calendar corresponding to Nisan. Let’s look up the word Nisan. Nisan (or Nissan; Hebrew: Standard Nīsan, Tiberian Nīsān; from Akkadian: Nisanu) in the Babylonian and Hebrew calendars is the month of the barley ripening and the first month of spring. In the Merriam-Webster: Definition of Nisan: the seventh month of the civil year or the first month of the ecclesiastical year in the Jewish calendar. Two things you see mentioned in both definitions are spring and the seventh month of the civil year. Let’s look up Civil Year: the time is taken by the earth to make one revolution around the sun. The civil year is also referring to the Julian Gregorian calendar which is based on the sun. With all that said, the seventh month of the civil year is what you called September. Interestingly, September is when spring begins in Africa. If you are in that region, the New Year Start in September which is also the month to celebrate Passover. As I stated before, in the Northern hemisphere like America, spring start in March, meaning your biblical New Year start in March which would be the year to celebrate Passover as well. The feast of the Passover is a very important feast to observe at the beginning of your months or the first month of the year (Read Jubilees 49). I think you have enough information to help you keep our heavenly Father’s feast days on the correct calendar days. Remember to read Leviticus chapter twenty-three to keep up with all the feast days because they are eternal ordinances.
