Consequences for Changing
Yahuah’s Original Set-Time Laws
Discover in this Hebrew Interlinear Word Study that the Eternal YAHUAH Alahim has only one preordained and prescribed set of FIXED-TIME laws, meaning one calendar model. Not just any time-measuring system manufactured upon the earth will do. In this article Yashar’al (Israel) is told the consequences for changing Yahuah’s original set-time laws, by Yahuah Alahim, Himself.
Babylon tried it and was rejected by Yahuah; Egypt tried it and Yahuah brought His people out; the Romans tried it and persuaded Yahudim (Jews) and gentile alike to follow after the rhythm of their artificial calendar beat. But here, at the very end of time, the Eternal is using TIME as His final test of loyalty. Find out what the ultimatum is, and the consequences of not making this subject one of great consideration.
In this short Word Study, Verse 35 opens with the prophet YirmeYAHU (Jeremiah) declaring the attributes of the Eternal Yahuah Alahim. He identifies not only the standard by which all others fall hopelessly short, but by what power Yahuah Alahim has that gives Him the legal authority to declare the consequences as found in verse 36 for not adhering to His TIME standard as part of the covenant agreement.
“Thus declares Yahuah, who appointed the sun for a light day by day, prescribed set-time laws of the moon and stars for a light by night; settles the Sea of Galilee when tumultuous; and ratifies His covenant. Yahuah of appointed worship times is His name!” YirmeYAHU (Jeremiah) 31:35
The Standard Lifted High
A consistent and familiar echo of the order of TIME in a 24 hour civil calendar date is revealed. Here it is declared that the day is followed by the night in this important statement put forth by the prophet YirmeYAHU. Still further, this statement illustrates that the sun was appointed day by day to give light with no uniquely visible change from one day to the next. On the other hand he goes on to clarify that the moon and stars have SET-TIME LAWS associated with them as they rule together by night. These were preordained and prescribed to locate all the appointed worship days of Yahuah, such as, kadosh (sacred) New Moon Days, Seventh-day Sabbaths, and yearly Feast Days. Further still authority is established upon the facts that – He settles the Sea of Galilee when it is tumultuous, and ratifies the covenant. Can you recall such an event, where the Sea of Galilee was calmed approximately 500 years later, around the same time the covenant was ratified? Both events were prophetically fulfilled by none other than the promised Messiah.
The Unparalleled Signature of Time Immutable
Only Yahuah, through the provision of His only begotten Son, Yahusha the Messiah, meet the standard of authority described. Yet, it is declared that this very signature in the shamayim (heavens) eternally binds Yahuah with the APPOINTED WORSHIP TIMES as part of His very name and identity. Simply put, these two, appointed worship times and the Creator, cannot be separated.
Two times in verse 35 the subject of SET-TIME or APPOINTED TIMES is discussed as prescribed LAWS from eternity past referring to the Creator of TIME itself. As a second witness and a nail in a sure place, this establishes who alone has the authority to declare what comes next in the third reference to the SET-TIME LAWS.
Consequences for Changing Yahuah’s Original Set-Time Laws
In verse 36 the focus changes from the attributes of a loving omnipotent Creator and His legal authority over His would be chosen people Yashar’al (Israel), to His own criteria and conditions for being His select people. Here is clarified the consequences for doing the unthinkable, the changing of Yahuah’s set-time laws for synchronized worship, from the established STANDARD to an artificial pseudo system. It was through the Covenant made with Abraham that his children were given great honor to bear the oracles of the plan of salvation, and carry the seed of the long promised Messiah. Yet, here we find the conditional qualification of obedience is linked to a specific predetermined time-measuring model in which Yahuah declares:
“If you (Yashar’el) shall remove the prescribed set-time laws, the oath of the covenant from before My face, prophesy’s Yahuah, then indeed (you) the children of Yashar’el shall cease from existence and being a nation before My face all the days (forever).” YirmeYAHU (Jeremiah) 31:36
Since the Eternal Yahuah Alahim knows the end from the beginning, might He have introduced this subject because He knew this was in fact going to occur? Might this verse in YirmeYAHU have been utilized as a warning mechanism for His beloved children? So the question of the day, “has Yashar’al actually removed all or part of Yahuah Alahim’s prescribed time-measuring model?” Yes, Yes, and Yes! They have changed ALL of it! Not even one time unit remains according to the recorded standard. Not only did this occur in YirmeYahu’s day, but also again in the 4th century A.D.
“In AD 351-352 Roman persecution flared and the Jews revolted. They were soon crushed. Many Jewish towns were destroyed and decrees issued against the local authorities and against Judaism. The privileges of the head of the Sanhedrin and the freedoms of the Sanhedrin itself were curtailed. Roman pressure to conform “Jewish” TIME to Roman TIME had reached crisis level. ibid
Under this pressure Hillel II agreed to limit the functions of the head of the Sanhedrin, as well as the Sanhedrin itself, with respect to proclaiming the New Moon, setting festival dates, and employing intercalation [inserting the 13th lunar month]. With the decline of the Jewish power-base in Israel, the Jewish community in Babylon had been rising in influence to fill the vacuum. Hillel II published details informing all Jews of the methods of the [new] calculated calendar developed in Babylon. From that time on the Sanhedrin in Judea ceased to function or to maintain calendar experts. Hillel II is thus given the credit for the present fixed Rabbinical calendar, but in reality it originated in Babylon and was just the starting point of the development of the Rabbinical calendar in use today.” Encyclopedia Judaica, s.v. “Hillel.”
The very fact that Yashar’al perpetually maintains to this day the Roman cycling week corresponding to the numbered count of Sunday through Saturday, and the Babylonian time-measuring calculation model, tells us that the nation of Yashar’al remains in Roman captivity. But how you might ask? Through returning to the unauthorized Babylonian New Moon calendar they utilized when in Babylonian bondage together with the Roman week. For these conflicting time-measuring systems necessitates the use of the synchronizing interface called the Seven Rules of Postponement. It was crafted for this very purpose, as it NEVER existed prior to the this calendar change. All of this is a mere fictional charade. How can we know? Because as long as the true time-measuring model of Scripture was consistently utilized, there was never calendar conflict. So this prophecy given by YirmeYAHU, as a voice of Yahuah to Yashar’al (Israel) has been fulfilled twice since His day. First, when they were taken into Babylonian captivity in 605 B.C.E., and the last time when taken into Roman Captivity in A.D. 70.
So if Yashar’al (Israel) has removed the principles of Yahuah’s original time-measuring system, where does that leave them today? It places them outside His protection, and without a Divine and eternal future. Folks, as hard as this may be for some to take in, Yahuah has stated His case. The reality is that not a single soul will be saved on that last great day simply because of their genealogy. Rather, opportunity will continually be provided by our loving Yahuah Alahim for their reformation and restoration by way of obedience to His TIME HONORED CALENDAR MODEL from full New Moon to full New Moon and from Sabbath to Sabbath, and a recognition that indeed their promised Messiah has come. For of a truth, TIME (our Creator’s original astro-luni-solar calendar) and the EVENT of Yahusha haMashiach (the Messiah) giving his life for mankind, are forever entwined. To remove one of these of necessity automatically removes the other, as they testify of one to another.
Evidence Yashar’al Removed the Prescribed Set-Time Laws
As the following quote explains, the New Moon is connected to the lunar cycle, and the Sabbath originally was. What it does not say is how or what caused the kadosh (holy) seventh-day Sabbath of the Eternal Yahuah Alahim to be removed from its original time-measuring model (calendar).
Additional to the Sabbath being changed from its original lunar arrangement to that of the modern Roman calendar model, so too the New Moon has lost its calling for reverence as a primary kadosh (holy) day of worship. Might this be a result of being also changed from the original full moon as New Moon arrangement to that of the popular Babylonian conjunction/crescent lunar phases? We know this change also occurred for the very reason we know how it is kept today in contrast to Scripture’s original requirement.
Folks there is a conspiracy to keep ALL the world following after the unauthorized modern Roman and Yahudim (Jew) calendar model in which it appears the Sabbath cycles on a continuous weekly circuit. It is their goal to keep you happily blind or questioning why it really matters after all. But nothing can be further from the truth. This is the very subject upon which Yahuah has chosen to test who the obedient are among all those who confess a belief in Him.
“AND ALL THE WORLD FOLLOWED AFTER THE BEAST.” Hazon (Revelation) 13:3
But the Eternal Yahuah Alahim knew His calendar model with its New Moon and Sabbath, were going to be the target of the enemy, and He knew it would be removed from their original prescribed fixed positions in TIME, as beaconed in the shamayim (heavens).
Profoundly, the same principles and qualifications of obedience also applies to ALL those who seek to be grafted in as followers of Messiah and heirs (Yashar’al) according to the promise. (Galatians 3:29) Here we find that Yahuah’s authority is attributed to His being the creator of all things, including TIME. And what could be more obvious, as YirmeYAHU reveals, “YAHUAH OF APPOINTED WORSHIP TIMES IS HIS VERY NAME.”
Personal Inventory and Mark of the Beast
Accordingly, each individual must make an inventory of their current time-keeping traditions to see if they are following Yahuah’s prescribed model. For His alone is beaconed from the full New Moon and stars by night to announce New Moon Days, seventh-day Sabbaths, and Feast Days. All other time-measuring systems fall short as they were designed by other craftsmen of unauthorized acclaim, such as Nimrod of Babylonian, a Pharaoh of Egyptian, or Julius Caesar and Constantine of the Roman Empire.
If anyone therefore, is honoring with their mind (forehead) or actions (hand) any other TIME-MEASURING model not preordained by Him, then the same ultimatum He gave Yashar’el applies. (Revelation 14:9) Meaning, if you neglect to compare your current calendar model to His, or choose not to REPAIR THE BREACH by synchronizing your soul temple to His, you too shall cease from existence, never to enter the portals of eternity through the twelve pearly full moon gates into the New Yarushalom or the earth made new.
We are living at a time when the LIGHT of TRUTH is flooding in, causing there to be no excuse for holding onto corrupt traditions while claiming to be a follower of the ETERNAL, unless of course you are really not. TIME is the final test of obedience for all who seek His face, and once you do accept this truth as self-evident, you will discover the seventh-day Sabbath is not the only unit of time tampered with. It is this subject that will separate the sheep from the goats, and the chaff from the wheat. False time-measuring can never identify the true Messiah, and with all its other rebellious ramifications it is none other than the Mark of the Beast. For it is through the rhythm of the calendar we choose, we declare who holds our allegiance.
“And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “if any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of Yahuah Alahim (God), which is poured out without mixture into the cup of His indignation; and He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascended up for ever and ever. And they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receives the mark of his name. For herein is the shalom (peace) of the zadek (righteous), here are they who keep the commands (statutes, commandments, judgments, and testimonies) of Yahuah and have the testimony of Yahusha.” Hazon (Revelation) 14:9-12
What All the Impostors Hold in Common
So what do the unauthorized craftsmen of artificial calendars hold in common? Here it is! They shared a deep rebellion to the Creator, seeking to be gods by being master of TIME. But also, each had a seat at Satan’s round table of jealous mutiny, of which you and I are the stakes. And per chance mankind should ever forget that ancient and infamous oath sworn by the enemy of souls, it was recorded by the prophet Isaiah for posterity, and as a testimony that you and I may not be deceived.
“How have you fallen from the shamayim (heaven), O Hillel הילל (Lucifer – Latin insert), son of the morning? How were you sent down to the earth, which didst weaken the nations? For you have said in your heart, ‘I will ascend into the shamayim (heavens), I will exalt my throne above the stars of Elohim (God): I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.’ Yet, you shall be brought down to Sheol, to the lowest depths of the pit. Those who see you will gaze at you, and consider you, saying, ‘Is this the man that made the earth tremble, and shook kingdoms . . . ” YashaYAHU (Isaiah) 14:12-16
What is Meant by the Mount of the Congregation in the Sides of the North?
So although recorded in Scripture there are a few statements in the above paragraph that for the most part have remained a mystery to all within the Christian denominations with regard to their true intended meaning. Why? Because as the time-measuring systems on earth have been altered, the principles of how our Creator’s original system worked were wholly lost to most of us. When we think of time today, we look at our clock or calendar on the wall, wrist watch, smart phone, or computer. Most of us don’t use sundials, or measure the alignments of the sun, moon and stars for demarcating time. Seldom do we look up and discern the shamayim (heavens). And if we did utilize these, we would most likely discover that we have been following an unauthorized craftsman’s altered and spurious starting points, and NOT the Creator’s original. So what do these two statements mean?
By utilizing multiple Hebrew dictionary/concordance sources we can deduce the following:
- “I will sit upon the mount of the congregation” . . . means he (Hillel הילל – Lucifer is a Latin insert) will exalt His throne by utilizing some form or rearrangement of Yahuah Alahim’s preordained (#4150 mo’ed מועד) fixed appointed set-times, for his own worship assemblies. His purpose being to receive the worship due the Creator by mixing truth with error regarding the New Moons, seventh-day Sabbaths, and Kadosh (sacred) Feast Days, and their (mo’ed) assembly times.
- “In the sides of the north” . . . (#3411 Yerekah ירכה – sides – rear flank) (#6828 tsaphon צפון – north) is a clarifying statement specifically regarding how Hillel (Lucifer) would receive worship by utilizing a skewed TIME-MEASURING MODEL in place of Yahuah Alahim’s preordained and eternal. For all time, as set forth at creation, is measured by the principle movements of the full light of the sun by day, and the full light of the moon as New Moon, together with the stars by night. Each of these LIGHTS were Divinely designed to rule TIME from EAST to WEST, all day and all night. For no matter where you are upon the face of the earth, the river of TIME always flows from east to west “in the sides of the north.”
“. . . For these are His sides, east and west. . .” YAHchezq’EL (Ezekiel) 48:1
Eternal Provision for His True Followers
Those who prayerfully seek to restore Yahuah’s SET-TIME LAWS in their own lives, discover it to be a covenant of peace. Entering into covenant is itself a sign of a humble and contrite heart and a sign of your full allegiance to Him and to no other power on earth, including your previous church, pope, prophet, or reformer. With this said, nothing about making this adjustment in your life was determined to be easy. But there are folks all over the face of the earth today making the necessary changes from one man-made calendar system to that of their Creator’s, Yahuah Alahim and Yahusha haMashiach (the Messiah). All who experience this journey, feel it is nothing short of a miracle that they have crossed over from darkness to LIGHT. All exclaim HalleluYAH, the eternal reward was worth the struggle!
“Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of Yahuah is near in the valley of decision.” Yo’el (Joel) 3:14
If all of this is very new to you, take two minutes to pray on your knees for the Eternal Father’s loving guidance. He will not let you down.
