I would like to share three important scripture from the book of Enoch.

The first scripture I would like to share with you is in chapter 22 of the Cepher Third Edition.

This chapter will debunk the rhetoric that after we die, we all go to heaven watching our loved ones from above. That’s why I always encourage you to read the word for yourselves. The church is use its propaganda to keep you ignorant of the truth while they cash in from your ignorance. Anyway, in Chapter 22: 1-5, 13-15, it reads,  1. “From there I proceeded to another spot, where I saw on the west a great and lofty mountain, a strong rock, and four delightful places. 2. Internally it was deep, capacious, and very smooth; as smooth as if it had been rolled over: it was both deep and dark to behold. 3. Then Raphael, one of the holy angels who were with me, answered and said, These are the delightful places where the spirit, the souls of the dead, will collect; for them were they formed; and here will be collected all the souls of the sons of men. 4. These places, in which they dwell, shall they occupy until the day of judgment, and until their appointed period. 6. Their appointed period will be long, even until the great judgment. And I saw the spirit of the sons of men who were dead; and their voices reached to heaven, while they were accusing. The interesting thing is in verse six at the end of it, reads “their voices reached to heaven.” Meaning, they are not in heaven as many of us were taught. That is a big clue to make you think.

If we read verses 13-15, it makes it clear that all the souls are separated. And it reads 13. “And thus has it been from the beginning of the world. Thus has there existed a separation between the souls of those who utter complaints, and of those who watch for their destruction, to slaughter them in the day of sinners. 14. A receptacle of this sort has been formed for the souls of unrighteous men, and sinners; of those who have completed crime, and associated with the impious, whom they resemble. Their souls shall not be annihilated in the day of judgment, neither shall they arise from this place. There I blessed God. 15. An said, Blessed b my heavenly Father, God of glory and of righteousness who reigns over all forever and ever.” Now, jog back your memory that will confirm the story of Lazarus regarding the separation of the souls. Luke 16:24-26 “And he cried and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.’ 25 But Abraham said, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented. 26 And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.’

The second scripture I would like to share with you is in chapter 103 of the Cepher Third Edition.

This one is ridiculous, and I mean everyone does it. I can’t for the life of me understand it. For some reason, many of us think that when someone dies, we owe them to say good things about that individual just because they died. You shouldn’t lie about anyone’s character whether they are alive or dead, nothing changes. If that individual was a murderer, thief, or mean, don’t sugar-coat it by saying they were a good person. You see, whether it is your family member or not, understand that the character many of us display in the public eye is not the same character we display behind closed doors. I think will be better not to say anything at all. Are there people out there who are good and live a righteous life, yes, absolutely, there are many? All I’m saying is to be careful. Without further due, let’s go to chapter 103:4-5, “Woe to you, sinners, when you die in your sins; and they, who are like you, say respecting you, Blessed are these sinners. They have lived out their whole period, and now they die in happiness and wealth. Distress and slaughter they knew not while alive; in honor, they die; nor ever in their lifetime did judgment overtake them. 5. Has it not been shown to them, that, to the receptacle of the dead their souls shall be made to descend, and their evil deeds shall become their greatest torment? Into darkness, into the snare, and into the flame, which shall burn to the great judgment, shall their spirit enter; and the great judgment shall take effect forever and ever.”

The third scripture I would like to share with you is in chapter 97 of the Cepher Third Edition.

I did a blog back in the day, and I told you that everything that we do on this earth is being recorded because this recording is what will play before you on the day of judgment. It has everything that you’ve done from the time you were born until the day you die. That goes for both the sinners and the righteous. Enoch 97: 15-19 “I have sworn to you, sinners, by the Holy and the Grea One, that all your evil deeds are disclosed in the heavens; and that none of your oppressive acts are concealed and secret. 16. Think not in your minds, neither say in your hearts, that every crime is not manifested and seen. In heaven, it is daily written down before God. Henceforward shall it be manifested; for every act of oppression which you commit shall be daily recorded until the period of your condemnation.”

I hope this helps you rethink.

Understanding The Concept

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. And God saw the light that it was good, and God divided the light from the darkness. 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 Abibthe 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 Nisanthe 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.

Leviticus chapter 23 – The Feast Days we should observe that are Eternal ordinances.

Hey everyone! I recently posted a blog about the Fourth Commandments (Sabbaths).  Since I went over the lunisolar calendar, I thought I’d also go through our heavenly father’s feast days to help you get a better understanding. Although I did it a year or so ago at the time there were certain things I spoke about that I didn’t get a concrete understanding of. Don’t panic, the information that was corrected is just the lunisolar calendar that I didn’t explain correctly. So, let’s dive into it. I will not go over the Sabbath day again because I just post it. Also, you can check out the book titled “Understanding the Ten Commandments and their entirety.” The book is just about the Ten Commandments only so you understand it. But you will need to read the Torah which is Genesis to Deuteronomy which has more details you must read. Remember, that it is a daily practice. I will say it again if you haven’t read the fourth commandments or listened to the podcast, I suggest that you do because that explains the lunisolar calendar where you will find the feast of New Moon or the first day of the month, Sabbaths day, and from there you will know how to find the upcoming feast days following after that.

Before I begin, I want to remind you that the New Moon is a feast that you should celebrate as well. That day will be like a gathering or celebration to cook, praise the Most High, reading the commandments. Just like the Sabbaths, you cannot make any transaction like buying or selling (Read Amos 8:5 as reference).  Let’s begin, with Leviticus 23: 4-8, which reads, “These are the feasts of the Lord, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons. In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the Lord’s Passover. And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto the Lord: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread. In the first day ye shall have a holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein. But ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord seven days: in the seventh day is a holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.”  The first feast of the year that we should all observe is the Passover and Unleavened Bread. Some of you probably never heard of Passover. Easter is what they replaced the Passover with and guys Easter is a demonic holiday. All the holidays in the Julian Gregorian calendar that the world celebrates are demonic and they have nothing to do with our heavenly Father.

I will start with the meaning of the word Passover. The Feast of Passover and Unleavened Bread has to do with the 10th plague in Exodus 11. Nonetheless, Exodus chapter twelve will tell you why it is called the Passover. I will not go through the whole chapter, that’s for you to read.  Exodus 12:13, “13 The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.” As you can see here, it says, the blood of the lamb or goat will serve as the sign on your house so when the angel of death sees it he will Passover your house. This feast is there so to be observed as an eternal ordinance. Verse 17 in the same chapter reads, “17 “Celebrate the Festival of Unleavened Bread because it was on this very day that I brought your divisions out of Egypt. Celebrate this day as a lasting ordinance for the generations to come.”

Also, understand, that the feast of the Passover and unleavened bread will keep you protected for the rest of the year, that’s why it is at the beginning of the month. You must read Jubilees 49, if you don’t have the book, you can pull it up on Google. Jubilees 49:14-15 (Cepher Bible), “For this reason the Lord commanded the children of Israel to observe the Passover on the day of its fixed time, and they shall not break a bone thereof; for it is a festival day, and a day commanded, and there may be no passing over from day to day, and month to month, but on the day of its festival let it be observed. And do thou command the children of Israel to observe the Passover throughout their days, every year, once a year on the day of its fixed time, and it shall come for a memorial well-pleasing before the Lord, and no plague shall come upon them to slay or to smite in that year in which they celebrate the Passover in its season in every respect according to His command.”  Jubilees 49 gives you all the information concerning the Passover and Unleavened bread.

Remember, that Africa is the land promised to Avraham, Isaac, and Jacob. This is where the garden of Eden is, and Jerusalem city of the great kings is located. Therefore, if you observed the Passover and Unleavened bread in the New Year or the first month of the year which will be in September, it will be good. New Year will fall on the next New Moon day. You cannot, I will say it again, You cannot buy a piece of lamb in the market to celebrate Passover. Understand that, it should only be celebrated in the place where our heavenly Father chooses preferably in the land where the twelve tribes live. Because the children of Jacob are not living in their own land and are scattered to the four corners of the earth, and Jerusalem is currently a wasted land, you can’t kill the lamb or goat in any place unless our heavenly Father instructs you too (Read Jubilees 49). Read Exodus chapter 12 where you have instructions about the lamb or goat. The only thing we can do is to keep that day a memorial on the fourteen days which will be on the second Sabbath of next month (September). You will remain inside and read the story with your family. The Unleavened bread, however, you can eat for seven days after the Passover. Remember, they carried their dough with them to the wilderness after they were thrust out of the land of Egypt.

The next feast is the First Fruit. Leviticus 23:9-10, “And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,10 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye have 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.” This feast day will be celebrated in the third month in the middle of the third month. Jubilees 15:1, “And in the fifth year of the fourth week of this jubilee, in the third month, in the middle of the month, Abram celebrated the feast of the first fruits of the grain harvest.”  So, since September is the first month, the first fruit will begin in mid-November. Remember, there aren’t any priests to offer any sacrifices. How you will observe it is, the day after the second Sabbaths in November, you will not eat any parched grain. Leviticus 23: 9-22, you have to read it. I’m just going to point out the key verses. In verse 11, “11 And he shall wave the sheaf before the Lord, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the sabbath the priest shall wave it.” You will not be bringing any sheaf because there aren’t any priests to receive it from you, as I stated before. All you will do is remember that day as a memorial. Verse 14, “14 And ye shall eat neither bread, nor parched corn, nor green ears, until the selfsame day that ye have brought an offering unto your God: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.”

The next step will be that you will count seven Sabbaths on that same day you were to bring the sheaf or that day you will keep a memorial. The seventh Sabbaths should fall on December 29 (Notes: make sure you calculate it yourself). The day after the seven Sabbaths which should be December 29, you will count or number fifty days. On the fiftieth day which should fall on February 17, 2023 (also the sixth month of the year. Please, make sure you count to verify). That day is the feast of the first fruit. Verse 15-16, “15 And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete: 16 Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days, and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto the Lord.” Again, that day will be a memorial and it will be a sabbath where you will do no servile work. In another word, you shouldn’t be at work. Verse 21, “21 And ye shall proclaim on a selfsame day, that it may be a holy convocation unto you: ye shall do no servile work therein: it shall be a statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.”

The next feast will be the feast of the blowing of the trumpets. Verse 24-25, 24 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation.” As it states, on the seventh month on the first day of the month which will be on New Moon day. Remember, New Moon is the first day of the month. This New Moon will be different from the others because you will celebrate it as a Sabbath day (No work should be done on that day).

The next feast following after it will be the feast of Atonement which is also on the seventh month from the 9th in the evening to the 10th. Verse 26-32, 27 Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be a holy convocation unto you, and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord.” This day is a fasting day where you will not eat or drink anything from the evening of the ninth to the evening of the tenth on the seventh month. Many of you don’t know why or the reason for it, so, I will give you the chapter for you to read that is Jubilees 34:12-19. Anyone who doesn’t keep that feast will be cut off. Verse 30-3230 And whatsoever soul it is that doeth any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people. 31 Ye shall do no manner of work: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. 32 It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath.”

The next feast following after it will be the feast of the Tabernacle. Verse 34, 34 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the Lord. 34 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the Lord.” Understand that each day should be a sacrifice made, but since there aren’t any priests as I keep mentioning, you will do a sacrifice of praise for seven days and you will sleep in tents for that seven days. The eight days will be the last day of that feast. So, this is a week that you will need to take off to celebrate the feast of Tabernacle. Again, they are eternal ordinances and there is no other way around it. As I always say, ignorance is not an excused. If you don’t know ask our heavenly Father for wisdom and understanding and He will grant it to you. James 1:5, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”

Keep in mind guys, that all the feasts that we are celebrating and the Torah (Ten Commandments) start from Noah down to Avraham to his descendants. They were eternal ordinances or contracts that Avraham’s seeds must keep. For you who said that you are gentiles or don’t have any lineage to Avraham, they are for you to follow as well as long you attach yourself to the God of Avraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Number 15: 15-16, “15 One ordinance shall be for you of the assembly and for the stranger who dwells with you, an ordinance forever throughout your generations; as you are, so shall the stranger be before the Lord. 16 One law and one custom shall be for you and for the stranger who dwells with you.’ ” I hope this helps you, and pray that you seek our heavenly Father and study. Shalem.

The Fourth Commandment

Book titled “Understanding the Ten Commandments and their entirety”

The Fourth Commandment

Exodus 20: 8-11 ““Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it, you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.”

Example: Sabbath is another word for seventh. The day of rest. Genesis 2:2, “ And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.”

The Sabbath day, if only we knew how important it is, everyone would have observed it and kept it holy. I have to say, anyone who truly respects and honors our heavenly Father will honor all of His commandments with no questions asked. I’m going to put the definition of the word hallowed, so maybe, you will understand the importance of that commandment. Sometimes lack of meaning or understanding of words can block the effectiveness, or stance of a command. That’s why I will keep saying it, to ask our heavenly Father for wisdom and understanding so that you can understand His instructions, so you do not err.

Let me tell you something, ignorance is not an excuse to sin, because everyone has the access to ask our heavenly Father anything that means wisdom and understanding should be the first on your list. James 1: 5-7 “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord.” Now, at the end of verse eleven in Exodus twenty, you see the word hallowed. Let’s look up the definition of Hallowed. Hollowed: made holy; consecrated; greatly revered and honored; to keep holy and set apart. With the definition, you should have an idea of the importance of the Sabbath Day. Deuteronomy 4:2 “Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.”

Let’s go back to the beginning of Creation in Genesis chapters one and two, but I will only go to chapter two verse two and which reads, “By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day, he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.” Look, guys, this is as clear as it could be. Our heavenly Father is saying look upon me as an example. See that I work six days meaning it took Him six days to create everything, and on the seven days, He rested, so He can be refreshed to start the new week. He was saying, I want you to keep that day set apart, respect, and honor it. Get this, on that day, He wants everyone in your household, servants and even your animals to rest, and it’s not a negotiation. To show you the seriousness of that day, when the children of Jacob were in the wilderness, he exhorted Moses to make sure to tell the people to keep the Sabbath Day.

Anyone who breaks it is worthy of death. Exodus 16:23 “He said to them, “This is what the Lord has commanded: ‘Tomorrow is a day of solemn rest, a holy Sabbath to the Lord; bake what you will bake and boil what you will boil, and all that is left over lay aside to be kept till the morning.” Moses made it clear that no one should be cooking, fetching water, or doing anything else on that day but should be indoors resting as God instructed him (Isaiah 58:13-14). Exodus 16: 29 “See! For the Lord has given you the Sabbath; therefore He gives you on the sixth-day bread for two days. Let every man remain in his place; let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.” Some people are confusing the weekly Sabbaths and the day of atonement Sabbaths. The day of atonement Sabbath is a day of fasting from evening to evening without food or water from the evening of the ninth to the evening of the tenth on the seventh month. Therefore, you do not need to prepare anything to eat. Understand the regular Sabbath, you are not allowed to fast (Jubilees 50).

That’s what makes it different from The day of atonement. But many have got it confused and start their Sabbath from evening to evening instead from dawn till dusk. You will find that in Leviticus 23:26-32. Moreover, as you see in the verse above that you must prepare your food the night before for the morning. This means, your Sabbath starts at dawn not even from the night before. Think about it, how are you going to prepare your food if you start in the evening? I also think the reason for the confusion is that many people still don’t understand the difference between day and night. When you see the word day, it means from dawn to dusk. The word night means from dusk to dawn. If you go back to Genesis 1:16 “God made the two bright lights: the larger light to rule the day and the smaller light to rule the night. He also made the stars.”

From reading the verse above as you can see, the larger light rules the day meaning dawn till dusk that’s how the day is described. I know, you were told that the day starts at midnight which doesn’t make any sense at all. That also tells you if the day starts at midnight, there are roughly about six hours or less in the night which is not possible. That’s why we must look into everything with a magnifying glass. The question remains, why do they say morning at midnight, I do not know, but according to the scriptures, it is still dusk, not dawn. Furthermore, some of the children of Jacob understood the importance of keeping the Sabbath. A man like Nehemiah was a witness to the punishment they endured for not keeping the commandments. That’s why when he returned to rebuild the city, he had zeal because he didn’t want to repeat or return to slavery. He wasn’t playing, and he wasn’t having it either.

Let’s read his actions, Nehemiah 15:15-21 “In those days I saw people in Judah treading winepresses on the Sabbath and bringing in sheaves, and loading donkeys with wine, grapes, figs, and all kinds of burdens, which they brought into Jerusalem on the Sabbath day. And I warned them about the day on which they were selling provisions. 16 Men of Tyre dwelt there also, who brought in fish and all kinds of goods and sold them on the Sabbath to the children of Judah, and in Jerusalem. 17 Then I contended with the nobles of Judah, and said to them, “What evil thing is this that you do, by which you profane the Sabbath day? 18 Did not your fathers do thus, and did not our God bring all this disaster on us and this city? Yet you bring added wrath on Israel by profaning the Sabbath.” 19 So it was, at the gates of Jerusalem, as it began to be dark before the Sabbath, that I commanded the gates to be shut, and charged that they must not be opened till after the Sabbath. Then I posted some of my servants at the gates so that no burdens would be brought in on the Sabbath day. 20 Now the merchants and sellers of all kinds of wares lodged outside Jerusalem once or twice. 21 Then I warned them, and said to them, “Why do you spend the night around the wall? If you do so again, I will lay hands on you!” From that time on they came no more on the Sabbath.”

Nehemiah understood the command God gave to Moses. He was aware of the punishment that follows those who break it. He knew when it comes to the commandments there is no negotiation, no compromising, it is all or nothing. He knew the curse that came upon their forefathers for breaking the Sabbath day. That’s why he threatened them that he will lay hands on them if they do it again. That’s the level of respect we need to have for our heavenly Father and his commandments. Nehemiah stood up for what he believed, and they did not return. The merchants knew what the children of Jacob were capable of and they wouldn’t want to test him. When you read 1 Maccabbees 2 you will see how zealous the children of Jacob were for the Torah. Jubilees chapter fifty also gives you details of what you should not be doing on Sabbath day. In the New Testament, it said to make sure when you flee it is not on Sabbath day. Matthew 24:20 “But pray ye that your flight is not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day.”

How many warnings do you need to take heed of? You find the Jews, again, man-made doctrine, telling people they can walk one mile to go to the temple.

You also find Christian pastors telling the people that it is eternal rest, they don’t need to keep it, but it will be after they die they will be rested eternally. Without a doubt, it is an eternal ordinance, and it should be kept when you are alive also it will be kept when the new heaven and new earth are established. You need proof, Isaiah 66:22-23 “For as the new heavens and the new earth that I make shall remain before me, says the Lord, so shall your offspring and your name remain. From new moon to new moon, and from Sabbath to Sabbath, all flesh shall come to worship before me, declares the Lord.” The only Christian group that keeps the Sabbath every Saturday like the Jews are the Seven Days Adventists and some of the Torah keepers. I mean, the Christians are so divided it is ridiculous. Get this, they are quick to say that the Catholics are not Christians, but guess who changed the Saturday Sabbaths to Sunday that all Christians follow? The Catholic Church, the mother of all churches is the one. Yet, they don’t recognize the Catholic Church as Christians when they are the head, and they all worship the same idol called Jesus.

 When I used to attend Calvary Chapel some years ago, Pastor Doug Sauder, I remember stood on the pulpit and said, “You can choose any day to keep the Sabbath.” He continued, “as for myself, I choose a day to read and meditate.” This is a guy that many people think highly of and is supposed to be knowledgeable in the word of God. People always look up to Christian pastors for knowledge, but little do they know they are blinds leading the blinds. If you truly desire wisdom and understanding, you must seek it from our heavenly Father above. There are so many others who claimed that they are in the truth and are following the footsteps of the Jews and observing the Sabbath day every Saturday which is not in the scripture.

Understand the Julian Gregorian calendar is man-made based on the sun. They also use the names of their pagan gods to commemorate them. If you research, you will see that each day of the week is named after a Greek god or goddess. Nonetheless, when you read Genesis chapter one and the books of Enoch you will see that God’s calendar is based on the moon and sun which is called the lunisolar calendar. 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 be confused because 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, you will see many references to the New Moon, and it is one of the feasts that should be celebrated every month.

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 restart 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. Now, we are going to some scriptures to back it up. Look, guys, you have to read this information yourself that’s why I’m providing the scriptures. 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). 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 24 which states that David hid on New Moon and didn’t show up to dine with King Saul. Then, in verse 27 it says, and it happened the next day, the second day of the month which was after the New Moon. That is just to confirm to you that New Moon is the first day of the month as you see it in Enoch 78. 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, to find the correct day to celebrate Sabbath all you have to do is count seven days starting from New Moon. As a bonus, I will also explain how you will find your new year per 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 23. 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, and if you don’t understand them just ask our heavenly Father to give you wisdom and understanding. 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. 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, you have entered a new year and that’s the time you should celebrate the New Year. The Passover feast follows on the fourteen days of that month. The New Year will fall on a different month of the year because we are in different hemispheres. Nonetheless, since the continent of 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 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 Abibthe first month of the ancient Hebrew calendar corresponding to Nisan. Let’s look up the word Nisan. Nisan (or Nissan; Hebrew: נִיסָן, Standard Nīsan, Tiberian Nīsān; from Akkadian: 𒊬𒊒𒄀 Nisanu) in the Babylonian and Hebrew calendars is the month of the barley ripening and first month of spring. In the Merriam-Webster: Definition of Nisanthe 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 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. Now, 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 23 to keep up with all the feast days because in each of them you must be observed as an eternal ordinance. We are going to move along to the fifth commandment.
