The Million Dollar Question!
Did the Eternal Yahuah create His time-measuring mechanism to reflect the rhythms of the Roman Gregorian calendar, designing it to hang on our walls and marking His Sabbaths and other set-apart days for worship on the basis of a continuous weekly cycle???
If so how would you realign yourself to keep Yahuah’s set-apart days if you were knocked unconscious and left on a deserted island for a year or until you died?
This article will discuss three calendar models listed here for clarification:
- The Creator’s Calendar ordained and placed in the shamayim (heavens) for all to see, with a full New Moon beacon for months and weeks (Sabbaths), days and years.
- The Roman Gregorian Calendar, which ignores the moon, and has a unique week that cycles without end.
- The Modern Jewish Calendar, which utilizes the moon for locating annual Feast Days, but also keeps the Roman Gregorian Calendar. Without any type of interface these two calendar models can never be harmonized.
Continuing with the question and answer above, although you may recognize what season you are in, you could never get closer than a 1 in 7 guess for the days of the week, or 1 in 31 day guess for the Roman Gregorian days of the month, and never have confirmation when Friday, Saturday, or Sunday occurred.
However, if you looked up to the LIGHTS in the sky above as placed there at creation for time-measuring, you would consistently find the sun, moon, and stars to guide you in the marvelous mechanism of the original Creator’s Calendar. But you would need to know a few things that none of us were taught, such as:
- Each of the three kinds of LIGHTS (sun, moon, and stars) rule the sky from east to west.
- One must discover that contrary to popular belief, the full moon lunar phase is the Creator’s true New Moon?
- The Year begins in spring when the full moon is in the constellation Bethulah (Virgo) by night.
- How the moon designates the count of 29-30 days with the starry constellations by night.
- The four lunar Sabbaths are counted from the full New Moon each month from first to last.
- How the stars beacon each of 12-13 months of the year together with the moon by night, as they arise together in the east.
- How the sun separates the day from the night, announcing the new day begins at sunrise and not sunset. All of which is defined by our loving Creator throughout the pages of Scripture.
Then Alahim said, “Let there be LIGHTS in the visible sky to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs (weeks and Sabbaths) and seasons (lunar months) and for days and years. . . And Alahim created and placed in their order from first to last two mighty, divine LIGHTS; the greater LIGHT to rule the day from beginning to end, and the dimmer LIGHT to rule the night from beginning to end together with the stars.” Bereshit (Genesis) 1:14, 16.
In less than a month, utilizing only this preeminent and divine LIGHT display, you would be able to realign yourself with all the Creator’s Calendar and His set-apart days of worship as H specifically designed. For our Creator instructed that by keeping His calendar we demonstrate our love and honor to our supreme maker and savior. He made the knowledge of His calendar so easy and fully visible that even a small child can understand.
In the Scriptures, we are instructed NOT TO WORK or DO OUR OWN PLEASURE on Yahuah’s seventh-day Sabbath, or any of the New Moon Days or set-apart Feast Days. 1) For the seventh-day Sabbath is a weekly set-apart convocation; 2) the New Moon a monthly convocation; 3) and the seven Feast Day Convocations occur in their places once per year. The words “holy convocation” simply mean “sacred set-apart rehearsals” as outlined in ViYAkra (Leviticus) 23:1-4. Therefore the same principles that apply to the seventh-day Sabbath also apply to the New Moon Days and seven yearly Feast Days. Ezekiel 46:1-3; Shemot (Exodus) 35:2; YAHshaYAHU (Isaiah) 66:22-23; and YirmeYAHU (Jeremiah) 17:22.
Did our Creator desire mankind to keep the Roman Gregorian calendar, which begins in winter instead of spring, ignores the moon, and has a week that cycles without end? Scriptures tells us that His Sabbaths are to be counted from the New Moons, yet to consistently fall on Saturday the 7th day, not Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday, folks must IGNORE Scripture’s calendar markers. For according to the planetary weekly cycle, the 7th day is Saturday. But in more ways than one the Roman Gregorian calendar contradicts our Creator’s Calendar as specified in Scripture. Just as oil and water don’t mix, neither can the Creator’s original calendar be harmonized with the Roman calendar. For it is missing the recognition of the New Moon to start the month; the lunar phases to mark the month count of days, essentially all the seven points listed above.
Today, the Jews and other Sabbatarians keep the Gregorian Saturday as their repeating weekly day of worship, but in addition the Jews also keep their luni-solar calendar for their yearly set-apart Feast Days. Let’s take a look at the placement of the Jewish Passover for the year 2019 that lines up with the Gregorian month of April 2019. Here we see that Passover, the 14th day of the Jewish First Month (Aviv), falls on the Gregorian April 8, in 2019, which is a Monday. But according to Leviticus 23:5-7, the seventh-day Sabbath must occur the following day, and is synonymous with the first day of Unleavened Bread, as it is referred to as a (holy) set-apart convocation. This would place the Scriptural Sabbath on Tuesday, April 9, 2019, of the Jewish calendar, a mere work day. Yet, according to Ezekiel 46:1 the seventh-day Sabbath can NEVER occur on a work day. Compare the two calendars below.
Again, if Yahuah Alahim has commanded us to keep the calendar in the shamayim (heavens), then neither the Jewish or Roman calendar for 2019, illustrating Passover on Monday, and the seventh-day Sabbath on a Tuesday, can be the Creator’s true set-apart days. Instead, we can see when compared to the true calendar that these are merely designated work days. So here it has been illustrated how the Roman Gregorian Calendar, which was forced in part upon the Jews back in the 4th Century A.D., is a witty invention of men. It has NO RELATION WHATSOEVER to the Creator’s Calendar of Scripture that Yahuah has asked us to keep as a set-apart unto Him.
The 2019 calendar is not unique to this rampant conflicting calendar problem, but six out of every seven years since A.D. 358, Passover and its successive seventh-day Sabbath have been placed on a Roman planetary work day. Utilizing the Jewish Holiday calendar above, here is how the Jews since A.D. 358 have placed Passover and the Sabbath on the Roman Gregorian months and weeks on the other four years:
Not one of these Jewish Holiday calendars that utilizes the Roman Gregorian calendar month and week model from 2015-2019 has placed Passover upon the 6th day of the week (the preparation day) with the next day as the Sabbath on the seventh-day, which is the Scriptural requirement. Thus, illustrating both to be spurious, and erroneous calendar systems as they reflect not the truth from Scripture.
Add to this a little known fact that it was not until the Jews succumbed to the pressure of the Roman Emperors (358 A.D.) to follow the ever cycling planetary week that the 19 Rules of Postponement were crafted of necessity to bring some kind of order out of chaos to the new Jewish calendar. Since that year the Jews have utilized two calendars, one for the Roman week cycle and one for their dark conjunction New Moons so they can count to and locate their Feast Days. This reality and need for the 19 Rules of Postponement was crafted to ensure that things like Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) never fall on a Saturday of the Roman week. This is simply another egregious piece of evidence that the Jews are not actually keeping the original Creator’s Calendar of Scripture, but remain in captivity to the Romans by way of the Gregorian calendar weekly cycle.
Because there is no disparity in the one and only Creator’s Calendar of Scripture there is no mention or need for 19 Rules of Postponement. For the Creator’s Calendar is beaconed from the shamayim, as noted in Scripture and out of the reach of man or beast, for all to see and know that both the Creator and His Calendar change not.
Yet, in contrast to the Jewish and Roman calendar model sanctioned confusion, below is an example of the Creator’s Calendar that consistently places Passover the 14th of Abib and the true Sabbath the 15th, upon the seventh-day each and every year. Like the Rosetta stone that shows multiple languages to help folks know how to translate that which was foreign, this calendar in large font shows the Creator’s Calendar dates according to the count from the full New Moon. In small font it identifies what these dates would be on the Roman Gregorian calendar for those who are seeking to learn how this all works.
Although the Christianized Churches declare the Creator’s Calendar and all the set-apart worship days were done away with at the cross/stake, we know from the pages of Scripture this is in error. For even after Yahusha haMashiach died to save us from our sins, His set-apart Natsarim (meaning the BRANCH) followers continued to keep His set-apart days of worship depicted in the Torah (OT covenant given to Moses). For it is only as Yahusha haMashiach fulfilled the appointed Passover prophecy on the 14th of Aviv counting from the full New Moon that we know for certain He came and accomplished the first step of our Salvation. All prophecies that began on astro-luni-solar time must be fulfilled on the same. Meaning the calendar must remain consistent from eternity past to eternity future. The prophecies of the crucifixion and resurrection of Yahusha were just the beginning, for all the Feast Day prophecies will only be fulfilled at His Second Coming and into the 1,000 years following. See Ma’aseh (Acts) 1:12; 2:1; 12:3 & 4; 13:14, 27, 42 & 44; 15:21; 16:13; 18:4 & 21; 20:16; 1 Corintiyim (Corinthians) 5:7 & 8; 16:8.
If this weren’t enough evidence, did you know that at the last supper, Yahusha our Messiah after giving specific instructions to His 11-12 disciples regarding the symbolism of the Passover wine and bread representing His body and blood shed for many, He made a profound declaration. He declared that He, Himself would abstain from both eating the unleavened bread and drinking the wine “FROM NOW ON UNTIL THAT DAY WHEN HE DRINKS IT AGAIN WITH YOU AND ME IN HIS FATHER’S KINGDOM.” Make no mistake, this clarifies that we are to continue keeping Passover and all the set-apart Feast Days (both fulfilled and not yet fulfilled), as memorials and rehearsals, and then we will continue to keep all of them as GREAT MEMORIALS with Yahusha haMashiach in His Father’s Kingdom for all eternity. HalleluYAH!
And as they were eating, Yahusha took bread, barakah (blessed) and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.” Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.” MatithYahu (Matthew) 26:29
Folks, this was not a new sacred day ordained at that moment so long ago, but an explanation that the symbology represented Himself. He did not give directives on how to eat the lamb, because He was the LAMB and no more lambs would need to give up their lives for our salvation, as He had paid it all at the cross/stake. Keeping Passover with bread and wine is the divinely ordained instructions along with New Moons, seventh-day Sabbaths and the other six annual Feast Days, given to all who would be His loving and obedient followers to keep to the end of this world, but then forever to infinity and beyond. For this is His prescription of true HONOR AND WORSHIP.
“And those from among you shall build the old waste places. You shall raise up the foundations of many generations. And you shall be called the repairers of the breach, the restorers of streets to dwell in. If you do turn back your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on My set-apart day, and shall call the Sabbath as a delight, the set-apart day of Yahuah, and shall esteem it, not doing your own ways, nor finding your own pleasure, nor speaking your own words, then you shall delight yourself in Yahuah. And I shall cause you to ride on the heights of the earth, and feed you with the inheritance of YAHcob your father. For the mouth of Yahuah has spoken!” YashaYAHU (Isaiah) 58:12-14
Strikingly, the Roman Gregorian calendar MARKS all the false a qadosh (holy) days. ALL of them are contrivances of the BEAST OF REVELATION. So another question to consider is: Might the modern Roman Gregorian calendar itself, be the identifying MARK found on ALL ITS FOLLOWERS in contrast to the seal of Yahuah?
Did the Eternal Yahuah create His time mechanism to reflect the rhythms of the Roman Gregorian calendar, designing it to hang on our walls and marking His Sabbaths and other set-apart days for worship on the basis of a continuous weekly cycle???
No! The Creator’s Calendar hangs eternally in the shamayim (visible skies above) and is beaconed by the full moon together with the stars by night and the sun by day, never to be changed by man or beast. His calendar is the only Scriptural standard for qadosh (sacred) days, weeks, months and years, and is based entirely upon the count from one full moon to the next full moon. The full moon as the true new moon is primary, while the the week and its Sabbath is entirely subjected to the count from from this visible event. For it is impossible within Scripture to harmonize the Feast Days and true seventh-day Sabbaths by any other method.
