Each of the following beliefs are vital principles that began at Creation and are portrayed by the Feast Day testimony of our prophesied Messiah and Savior who died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. Because we love both Father and Son, we follow the protocol of repentance (death to sin), we partake of baptismal submersion (burial) in the name of Yahuah and Yahusha, and receive the marvelous gift of forgiveness and a fresh new life (resurrection). We long for the coming eternal Kingdom in which there will be no more, sin, sorrow or death. For as it is written: “EYE HAS NOT SEEN, NOR EAR HEARD, NOR HAVE ENTERED INTO THE HEART OF MAN THE THINGS WHICH YAHUAH HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM.” 1 Corinthians 2:9
We believe at this hour of earth’s history it is imperative to restore all of our Creator’s truths. We believe an all-out attack by the Prince of Darkness has targeted the WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY, and HOW of Yahuah’s truth and plan of salvation, as it is portrayed in Scripture. The Creator’s Calendar team have heard the call to lift up the standard and restore each of the lost and destroyed units of time as well as the true sacred names of the Father and Son.
The following statements of belief are subject to revision as we continue to search for truth as for buried treasure, and are led by the Ruach (presence) of the Eternal Father, Yahuah and His Son Yahusha.
(2 Thessalonians 1:8; 1 Peter 4:17; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4.)
The surest barrier to advancing truth
Is the conviction one already has it.
The Creator’s Units of Time
- Day precedes the night in a 24 hour calendar date. The moon’s changing phases by night are the striking markers in the shamayim announcing each corresponding new date will commence at sunrise. A Day in Genesis
- The sun was designed to rule by daylight alone, marking the passage of hours on a sundial, and only the moon was designed to measure time together with the stars by night (Genesis 1:16; Psalms 136:7-9; Jeremiah 31:35) to highlight the continual passage of time in the Creator’s Mazzaroth for astro-luni-solar years, lunar months, lunar Sabbaths, and lunar civil dates (Job 38:32). A Day in Genesis
- The sacred portion of the New Moon day and seventh-day Sabbath is 12 hours from sunrise to sunset only, and not the entire 24 hours from sunrise to sunrise. Sunrise or Sunset, When Does the Day Begin?
- The New Year is announced on the night the full moon marks the feet (or legs) of the constellation Bethula (Virgo) in the spring. This is the great sign of the woman arising clothed with the sunlight with the full moon at or near her feet. A Great Sign Appeared in the Shamayim
- Months are beaconed by the full moon as the true New Moon in striking contrast to the dark or crescent lunar phases that have predominantly existed since the time of Nimrod (2,300 B.C.) for his pagan sun-worship cult. The Sun was Darkened from the Sixth to the Ninth Hour.
- Weeks were designed by the Creator to be counted from each full New Moon as were the Feast Days, according to the lunar demarcation of calendar dates. New Moon by New Moon You Shall Keep
- The qodesh Feast Days commence and terminate according to their individual prescriptive designations. For detailed support on all units of time refer to article: The Creator’s Calendar Units of time
1. Lunar-Astro-Line Time VS. Solar-Line Time Comparisons
For thousands of years the entire world has been spoon-fed artificial time measuring methods that are 180 degrees opposite of the ordained WAY OF THE MOST HIGH. This is further driven by the egregious changes made in all the translations of Scripture that serve to cover-up the full moon as the original New Moon of Creation and support whatever is fashionable among the Babylonians, Egyptians, Romans, and even the modern Jews. In spite of this, Yahuah’s true followers, those who seek for truth with all their hearts and obey, will be restored and come forth triumphant from earth’s dark pit of deception into His Kingdom and marvelous FULL LIGHT OF TRUTH.
It is only as the shamayim (heavens) have been taken captive by the supplanting of pagan time-measuring principles that usurp the original plan of the Creator, that the Mazzaroth (Job 38:32), referring to the Zodiac has become paganized. Add this to the pagan view that the date of one’s birth among the twelve signs determines personality or events, and this becomes cause enough for Scripture believers to throw the whole thing out. Shame on us! The time beaconed from the Mazzaroth in the shamayim is the very signature of the Eternal, the Creator of all. His would be followers have only injured the cause of truth, by throwing the baby out with the bath water. Rather, this is our opportunity to reverse this heresy and be a part of rebuilding the wall of truth one time unit upon another, as did Ezra and Nehemiah with the stones. “The only thing necessary for evil to triumph, is for good men/women to do nothing.” The marching orders for the obedient followers of the Eternal is to set His clock/calendar aright. For all prophecies continue to be established upon the basis of only one calendar model, and this is original shamayim calendar model with the predominant focus on the full moon as the original new moon.
And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, the repairer of the breach, the restorer of paths to dwell in. Isaiah 58:12.
Modern Gregorian Time is based upon the Solar-Line Time
The modern Roman Gregorian calendar time measuring system has been adopted by most of the world today. It is based upon the principles of measuring time that utilizes the imaginary Solar-Line from earth at noon through the sun, and marks the ruling constellation of the Zodiac that is not even visible. This system begins in winter instead of spring and declares Sagittarius as the first constellation of the year, which is only visible in the sky between spring and fall. This Roman calendar model continues to ignore the relevance of the moon, remaining true to the choice of Julius Caesar to remove the moon from their time-keeping in 45 B.C. Although the lunar-astro calendar was created for all mankind upon the face of the earth, Rome in its hatred for all things Jewish, continues to this day to ignore all time units produced by the moon. Curiously, the location of Easter remains, since A.D. 325, on the first Sunday after the full moon following the vernal equinox.
“In the mid-1st century B.C. Julius Cæsar invited Sosigenes, an Alexandrian astronomer, to advise him about the reform of the calendar, and Sosigenes decided that the only practical step was to abandon the lunar calendar altogether. Months must be arranged on a seasonal basis, and a tropical [solar] year used, as in the Egyptian calendar.” “The Julian Calendar,” Encyclopedia Britannica.
Make no mistake, it was by removing the moon as a beacon of time that started the Romans on a journey of measuring the sun against the backdrop of the constellations, like the pagan nations before them. Thus, they developed their own model of month length, that also allowed the weeks to drift throughout the months and years with no relevant connection to either, for this had always been the role of the moon. Then they sold this to the entire world as having existed since the time of creation, all the while persecuting and waging war on anyone who would not adhere. As a result, the world bought into this lie, because over time, with the truth being lost, the Scriptures appeared to support this view. Ironically, the Romans together with the Jews had their hands on the sacred manuscripts.
But this view does not fit the Scriptural model, as the Creator’s signs, seasons, days, and years were each to be governed by the sun by day, and the moon together with the stars by night, for the purpose of bearing testimony of the Creator of the shamayim (heavens) and earth. It is an utter impossibility for the modern week, which cycles with no relevant connection to the celestial orbit of the shamayim, to be the SIGN POST for Creation, or an ambassador of the Creator. For of a truth, the shamayim declare the honor of Yahuah and the firmament (visible horizon view of the shamayim) shows his power (Psalms 19:1-6.
Enoch’s Solar-Line Time as Measured through the Sun
This astroplot below illustrates the ever-growing in popularity, Enoch solar calendar with its Solar-Line Time entirely independent of the moon. It is similar to the modern Gregorian calendar in that it is based upon the principles of a 365.25 solar year with a comprehensive rejection of any involvement of the lunar phases. But this is where the similarities end. The Enoch calendar is all about the sun and the vernal equinox with consistent 30 day months. Each quarter, one day is added bringing its total to 91 days. Then an additional day is added on the last day of the year, bringing the total number of days of the year to 365.
While this calendar entirely disregards the New Moon of Scripture, it is surprising how many folks claiming solo Scriptura continue choosing to support and teach this form of time-keeping if for no other reason than the fact that Scripture refers to the New Moon over 300 times. Its primary time indicator is the sun, which continues to mark the ruling constellation of stars on the opposite side of the universe by day, when they are neither visible nor ruling according to Scripture’s standards. Remember, according to Scripture the sun was designed to rule alone and never with the stars, while it was the full New Moon that the Creator designed to perpetually rule together with the stars by night. New Moon Changed by Formal Decree
So it is that any method that falls short of the Creators template for time-keeping is unlawful within His Kingdom. Anyone continuing to follow a Solar-Line-Time system once they have been shown ample evidence is in rebellion to their Creator. Please take the time today to review your options. The Messiah has already made a way of escape and is now restoring His divine truths to those who will be obedient.
To the Torah and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no LIGHT in them. Isaiah 8:20
The Torah refers to the first five books of the Tanakh (OT)or it can include the entire Tanakh. The Testimony denotes the seven prophetic qodesh Feast Days ordained to tell the Messiah’s salvation story every year from beginning to end, and from full New Moon to full New Moon. No doubt the Testimony also includes the entire Renewed Covenant (NT), revealing the life of the Messiah. The Torah and the testimony are like a GPS Unit that pinpoints where the truth may be found. If the Book of Enoch, or any other writings considered to be inspired, come between a person and the TRUTH as found in the Torah and the testimony, then they can no longer claim Scripture as their foundation or guide, and there is NO LIGHT in them.
Lunar-Solar-Line-Time as Measured Through the Sun
In essence this Lunar-Solar-Line Time as shown below, measures for both the dark lunar phase and the crescent. For the New Moon Day in both cases must first commence with the lunar conjunction as the occulted moon event aligns with the sun. Each group may have differing beliefs on this. Even though the moon is part of this equation, it is nullified by the sheer fact that this system of measuring time flies in the face of the Creator’s designation that 1). Only the moon was to rule with the stars; 2) And that this was only to occur at night.
From earth at noon on this day shortly after the vernal equinox, the moon is not visible because it lies in the visual path of the brilliant sun. Several times a year the sun can even be eclipsed by the occulted moon rendering it invisible, an occulted sun. But most striking of all is that every single month following the imaginary Lunar-Solar-Line Time the starry constellations are NEVER visible. The ruling constellation can only be deduced via a man-made astroplot, such as the one below, utilizing the Lunar-Solar Line marker.
In the astroplot below DAGON rules the first month of the year of this modern Jewish calendar style. This illustration reflects the modern Jews time-system combining the Lunar-Solar-Line Time to mark the commencement of their pseudo sacred Feast Days, and at the same time adhere to the Gregorian calendar for years and weeks. In order to cooperatively harmonize these two opposing calendar styles, the Modern Jews invented the Nineteen Rules of Postponement, which did not exist prior to A.D. 358, when under Roman influence and persecution they changed their calendar. Read the story of Dagon and how the Eternal felt about this pagan god. Most are not aware that Pisces is Dagon, and Dagon represents Tammuz the son of Nimrod, and the third person of Babylon’s pagan trinity. (1 Samuel 5:1-8) So knowing this, why does Dagon mark the Jewish New Year and first of month of the Mazzaroth?
“…Another symbol of the Christian church and
Jesus[Yahusha] is the fish. Many people put the Jesusfish on the back of their cars …with little idea of what it really means. The fish does not represent Jesus, it represents the constellation of Pisces. In 2005 an ancient church was discovered buried under prison ground in Uriah Israel a large mosaic tiled the floor and depicted was two fish, facing opposite directions and stacked on top of each other. This two fish picture is classic representation of the age of Pisces. In the Bible, Jesuscomes across two fisherman and says ‘Come and I will make you fishers of men,’ and later feeds an entire crowd of people with a few loaves of bread and two fish. Eventually the fish would come to represent Jesus, the god of the Christian religion.
Jesus, however, Dagon was the Piscean fish god. The Catholic Pope does not represent Jesus, he represents Dagon. In fact, the mitre he wears is shaped like a fish and is the official fedora of Dagon…” A new Order of the Ages: Volume One: A Metaphysical Blueprint of Reality and an Expose On Powerful Reptilian/Aryan bloodlines – Colin Robert Bowling, Bloomington, IN 47403: IUniverse (2011)
Carrying this thought forward of Pisces as Dagon, here is an artist’s rendering of the attire worn by the High Priest Caiaphas at the time of the Messiah. Notice He is depicted as wearing the Dagon mitre with a crescent moon in front of it. This is illustrating a Lunar-Solar-Line Time marker. While this is in harmony with modern Judaism today, it is my current belief that Israel at the time of the Messiah’s first coming were for the most part keeping the correct calendar, but shortly thereafter adopted the Lunar-Solar-Line Time that they continue to keep today. The three points that can be drawn from this are:
- This Dagon mitre represents modern Jewish timekeeping. This is because Dagon symbolizes the constellation Pisces, and the crescent together with the sun, marks Dagon (Pisces) as the first and supreme ruling constellation of the year for them. According to this sign of Dagon, all the feasts of Yahuah are currently reckoned by the Jews, Messianics, and some luni-solar Sabbatarians. This illustrates that all who follow this system of time reckoning are doing so entirely based upon occult paganism, falling outside the pail of the Creator’s authorized time measuring protocol. And even though this is only a drawing, it is clear the connection was made that Pisces is Dagon the fish god.
- The second point, long suspicioned, is that the Jews current Lunar-Solar-Line Time measuring is 100% of the time paying homage to Dagon in league with Rome. Rome may even be their supreme ruler. But the reverse may be true, with the Zionist Kabbalah keeping Jews running the whole world. Strikingly, ALL Roman Bishops and Popes are priests according to the order of Dagon, and not Melchizedek as are Yahusha the Messiah and His true followers.
- The modern Jewish calendar will NEVER identify the true set-apart worship days of Yahuah via this line of measure through the dark or crescent New Moon, through the sun, and onto Dagon. All this will produce is erroneous non-sacred days, and its worship will be received by Hillel (Hebrew name for Lucifer) the Prince of Darkness. Might this have been what was troubling Yahuah when Israel went into idolatry in the days of the Prophet Isaiah, and He declared in His frustration?
“Your New Moons and your appointed feasts My soul hates; they are a trouble to Me, I am weary of bearing them.” Isaiah 1:14
I contend that the change from the original full New Moon of Creation to this deception from the PIT OF HELL took root off and on throughout Israel’s history, but became their fixed system of time measuring between the first century and fourth century A.D., with the aid of Roman influence beginning after the crucifixion of the Messiah. Together with Rome, the Jews continue to renew their covenant with ha Satan each and every spring when the occulted moon together with the sun, mark the occulted constellation Pisces, paying homage to Dagon. New Moon Changed by Formal Decree
Since the fourth century A.D., the Jews have followed two calendars at the same time. These are the luni-solar calendar and the Gregorian solar calendar. They utilize the (354 day year) crescent moon from spring to fall to locate their Feast Days, but they use the (365.25 day year) solar calendar to locate their seventh-day Sabbaths on a continuous weekly cycle all year. The evidence that it is impossible to be in alignment with Scripture’s true sacred Sabbaths and Feast Days and at the same time practice this twofold time-keeping system is revealed in the necessity of the Jews to formulate their Nineteen Rules of Postponement. These nineteen rules are nowhere to be found in Scripture, but are only needed when one tries to harmonize and keep two opposing calendar models at the same time. Might this be why the Seventh-day Adventist Church does not embrace Scripture’s Feast Days. For by doing so it would create instant conflict with their perceived Sabbath. Their theologians know that it is impossible to keep Scripture’s true lunar-astro Sabbaths and sacred Feast Days according to the Roman Gregorian solar calendar. So they found it was easier to continue keeping a false Sabbath and simply ignore the annual Feast days and hope that nobody would realize that the true seventh-day Sabbaths are lunar and were ordained on the same lunar-astro calendar as the Feast Days, which they currently shun.
Scripture only supports one calendar model. This is the Lunar-Astro Time measuring system ordained at Creation. While the sun arises every morning to commence the new day, it is the lunar-astro (moon and stars) phases and positions that define the start of the new calendar date the following morning at sunrise. In fact, each New Year, new month, new week, and new day all begin at sunrise. While the qodesh Feast Days and weeks/Sabbaths are counted from each full New Moon, the 12 hour sacred portion of the New Moon, Sabbath, and Feast days are from sunrise to sunset only, unless otherwise stated.

2. Sacred Scriptures
The sacred Scriptures were given by divine inspiration through men as they were inspired by the Most High, Yahuah. The prophets spoke and wrote as they were moved by His Ruach (Spirit). It is in His Word, that the divine oracles of truth have been committed for safe keeping drawing mankind back to a knowledge and obedience necessary for salvation.
We believe that both Tanakh (OT) and Renewed Covenant (NT) were originally written in Hebrew. It is only in this foundational context that they are the infallible revelation of His will and Word. All translations, old and new have become an open door to human error and corruption of Yahuah’s grand and sacred truths. Whatever the beliefs of the translators were at the time of their translations became overtly or covertly the doctrinal beliefs of the day and have been passed down to us.
The reformation that began so long ago, will continue until the Savior’s second coming to draw the obedient truth seekers closer to the “light of truth” and out of Babylon. For each person must become a student of the word. Through the use of tools available to us today, such as multiple Lexicons and Bible Dictionaries, each must diligently dig deeper than the mere surface of modern translations.
By doing so, the pure and clear revelations can shine forth from His sacred word for such a time as this. The sacred Scriptures are the standard of character, the test of experience, the authoritative revealer of truth, and the trustworthy declaration of prophecy to be fulfilled at their appointed time. Each of the following support Scriptures are referring only to the original languages, according to Yahusha’s declaration that, “not one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.” Matthew 5:18. Jots and tittles are only applicable to Hebrew as a testimony to the original language.
(2 Peter 1:20, 21; 2 Timothy 3:16, 17; Psalms 119:105; Proverbs 30:5, 6; Isaiah 8:20; John 17:17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; Hebrews 4:12; Jeremiah 8:8; Matthew 5:18.)
3. The Father
The eternal Father, Yahuah, together with His Son, created the shamayim (heavens) and the earth. Together, in a plural form, they are referred to as Alahim (#430). Alahim, is the source, sustainer, and Sovereign of all creation, as described in Genesis 1:1. The eternal Father, Yahuah is sovereign, just, merciful, gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and trustworthiness. These are the qualities and powers exhibited through His Son and set forth in the Ten Commandments, and are manifested revelations of the Plan of Salvation, as born out in the annual sacred Feast Days.
(Genesis 1:1; Revelation 4:11; 1 Corinthians 15:28; John 3:16; 1 John 4:8; 1 Timothy 1:17; Exodus 34:6, 7; John 14:9; Daniel 12:1; Jude 9; Revelation 12:7.)
4. The Son
The eternal Son became incarnate (flesh) in Yahusha. Together with His Father as Alahim, all things were created. In Him, the character of His Father is revealed, the salvation of humanity is accomplished, and the world is judged. Yahusha, the Messiah, and is forever fully divine, but because of His great love for fallen mankind, He became also fully man. He was conceived by the Ruach (Spirit) of His Father and born of the Virgin Mary. He lived and experienced temptation as a human being, but perfectly exemplified the righteousness and love of His Father. By His miracles He manifested His Father’s power. His perfect life and time-centric death testify that indeed He was the promised Messiah. He suffered and died voluntarily on the Roman cross (or stake) for our sins as the lamb slain, that we may freely receive His life. He was then raised from the dead, and ascended to minister in the shamayim sanctuary on our behalf as the living Lamb, our High Kohen Melchizedek and advocate before His Father. Together the Father and Son work out our final atonement. He promised that He will come again in splendor and majesty for the final deliverance of His people, and the restoration of mankind back to the Father and His original plan.
(John 1:1-3, 14; Colossians 1:15-19; John 10:30; 14:9; Romans 6:23; 2 Corinthians 5:17-19; John 5:22; Luke 1:35; Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 2:9-18; 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4; Hebrews 8:1, 2; John 14:1-3; Daniel 12:1; Jude 9; Revelation12:7.)
5. “Holy Spirit” or the “Ruach Divine Presence” of the Father and Son
The references to the “Holy Spirit” in most modern Scripture translations identify it as a separate divine individual who is “one” with the Eternal Father and His Son, making three equal heads, referred to as the divine Trinity. This is a teaching loudly proclaimed by Roman Catholicism as her foundational doctrine. However, it has also been adopted and heralded widely by most of her daughter protestant churches. Because most translators have been influenced by Catholic and protestant ideologies, it was imputed via word craft into the Scripture translations. Just because it has been taught as truth for 1,000 years does not make it true. The work of the Reformation is yet incomplete. Each soul must continue the work of reform and test all doctrines as did the Bereans, by turning over every doctrinal stone and by comparing them with foundational Hebrew and or Greek.
After much study on this subject, we believe the Father and the Son reign supreme. They together at creation are referred to as Elohim (#430). All the works of creation, the incarnation of the Son, and the restoration of souls back to the Father after sin, are continually depicted in the Temple services by the story of only the Father and Son.
It was by the Ruach (divine presence) of both Father and Son, that the writers of Scripture were inspired. It was by the Ruach of the Father that filled Yahusha’s life with power. The Ruach (divine presence) of the Father and Son draw and convict human beings to humble confession and repentance. Those who respond are renewed and transformed into the image of the Father, by way of the sacrifice and Priesthood of the Son. By “their” Ruach (divine presence) both the Father and the Son are to always with their children, extending gifts to the called out assemblies, empowering them to bear witness of Yahusha’s atoning sacrifice as it was given freely to all mankind, and in harmony with the Scriptures leads all those who humbly seek, into the marvelous light of truth.
“Then Peter said unto them, “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Yahusha, the Messiah for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Ruach (divine presence).” Acts 2:38
The following historical quotes shed light on the subject of a fraudulent Trinity doctrine, as it was a belief imputed to the Word that did not otherwise exist. Beginning with 1 John 5:7 we discover that this belief was not borne out by the weight of manuscript evidence, but established by fraud.
“When Erasmus published his version of the Greek New Testament, he left out the additions to 1 John 5:7 from his first two editions (1516, 1519), arguing that he could not find those words in any Greek manuscript. Pressure by some (Catholicism) to include this addition to the Greek text, Erasmus proposed that if they could show him a single Greek manuscript in which the addition was found, he would include it in his next edition. Sure enough, they came up with a Greek manuscript in which the addition was found, one scholar was dated from the sixteenth century AD, translated from Latin to the Greek and added to the Greek text. Erasmus subsequently included it in his 1522 edition of the Greek New Testament.” SDA Biblical Research Institute
For there are three that bear witness in the shamayim (heaven): the Father, the Word, and the Ruach (divine presence); and these three are one. 1 John 5:7
“Out of one hundred and thirteen manuscripts, the text is wanting [lacking] in one hundred and twelve. It occurs in no manuscript before the 10th century. And the first place the text occurs in Greek, is in the Greek translation of the acts of the [Roman Catholic] Council of Lateran, held in AD 1215. Bible Commentary on 1 John 5
Notice below that in Matthew 28:19 the names of the Father and Holy Spirit are purposely not present in the text.
Eusebius cites Matthew 28:19 eighteen times in his work, always in the same form, “Go ye and make disciples of all nations in My Name, teaching them to observe all things, whatsoever I commanded you.” Article in Beauties of the Truth, January 1991 edition.
Shockingly, we find below a full admission that Matthew 28:19 was proactively changed from its original, by the Catholic Church to reflect her beliefs.
“The baptismal formula (in Matthew 28:19) was changed from the name of Jesus Christ [Yahusha the Messiah] to the words Father, Son, and Holy Spirit by the Catholic Church in the second century.” The Catholic Encyclopedia, II, page 263.
Catholic Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger made this confession about the origin of the chief Trinity text of Matthew 28:19:
“The basic form of our (Matthew 28:19 Trinitarian) profession of faith took shape during the course of the second and third centuries in connection with the ceremony of baptism. So far as its place of origin is concerned, the text (Matthew 28:19) came from the city of Rome.” Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict
Note: All references to the “Holy Spirit” in the Strong’s Concordance state:
pneuma— a current of air; breath; a breeze; a spirit; a rational soul; (by implication) vital principle; mental disposition; or (superhuman) an angel; demon; or (divine) Elohim, Messiah’s spirit; the Holy Spirit.)
We believe the “Holy Spirit” is the Ruach (divine presence) of either the Father or the Son and not a third being. This comes from in-depth Hebrew and Greek word studies, and we do not take this subject lightly.
(Genesis 1:1, 2; Luke 1:35; 4:18; Acts 10:38; 2 Peter 1:21; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Ephesians 4:11, 12; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:38; John 14:16-18, 26; 15:26, 27; 16:7-13; 1 John 5; Matthew 28:19 .)
The eternal Father, Yahuah, and Son (together as אלהים Alahim #430), are the Creators of all things, as Scripture reveals in the authentic account. In six literal days Alahim made the celestial bodies and the earth, and all living things upon the earth. As the crowning act of creation, He created man and woman in His own image. The next day He rested on His seventh-day of that first week. Thus He established His Sabbath upon earth as a perpetual memorial of His completed creative work. Adam and Eve were given dominion over the world, and charged with responsibility to care for it. When the world was finished it was “very good,” as all things created declared the eternal splendor and majesty of Alahim. (Genesis 1; 2; Exodus 20:8-11; Psalms 19:1-6; 33:6, 9; 104; Hebrews 11:3.)
7. Nature of Man
Man and woman were made in the image of the Almighty Eternal Father with individuality, the power and freedom to think and to do. Though created free beings, each is an indivisible unity of body, mind, and soul, wholly dependent upon the Father for life and breath and all else. When our first parents disobeyed the Eternal Father’s requirements, they denied their dependence upon Him. As a result, they fell from their high position as Masters of earth, and representatives of earth among the unfallen worlds of the harmonious shamayim universe. The image of the Father in them was marred, and they became subject to death. Their descendants share this fallen nature and its consequences. They are born with weaknesses and tendencies to evil. But Yahuah, the Father, through His Son, Yahusha, reconciled the world to Himself and by His Ruach (Spirit) restores in penitent mortals the image of their Maker.
Created for the love and joy of the Father, they are called to love Him in return, and one another. Mankind shows His love to the Father and Son, through their obedience to the divine laws, and through praise and worship on His pre-appointed sacred days as defined in the Sanctuary model. These include the New Moon day, the seventh-day lunar Sabbath, and the each of the annual sacred Feast Days.
(Genesis 1:26-28; 2:7; Psalms 8:4-8; Acts 17:24-28; Genesis 3; Psalms 51:5; Romans 5:12-17; 2 Corinthians 5:19, 20; Psalms 51:10; 1 John 4:7, 8, 11, 20; Genesis 2:15; Ezekiel 46:3; Leviticus 23:2-39; Exodus 20:10; Ezekiel 46:1.)
8. Great Controversy
All humanity is now involved in a great controversy between Alahim (Father and Son) and Satan regarding the character of the Father, His law, His sovereignty over the universe, and His preordained time-centric time-piece placed in the shamayim that calls us to His synchronized corporate worship. The epi-center of this conflict originated in the sacred city above, when Lucifer, a created being, endowed with freedom of choice, in self-exaltation became Satan, the adversary of truth, and led into rebellion one third of the divine messengers. He later introduced the rebellion into this world, when he led Adam and Eve into sin. This human sin resulted in the distortion of the image of the Father in humanity, the disordering of the created world, and its eventual devastation at the time of the worldwide flood.
Observed by the whole creation, this world became the theater of the universal conflict, out of which our loving Eternal Father will ultimately be vindicated. To assist His people in this controversy, Yahusha came in the flesh to manifest the truth about His Father, and to be our atoning sacrifice. By way of His sacrifice His Ruach (presence) of truth guides all who are seeking, by protecting and sustaining them in the way of salvation. He equips His followers with power to thwart the enemy of souls.
(Revelation 12:4-9; Isaiah 14:12-14; Ezekiel 28:12-18; Genesis 3; Romans 1:19-32; 5:12-21; 8:19-22; Genesis 6-8; 2 Peter 3:6; 1 Corinthians 4:9; Hebrews 1:14; Ephesians 6:11; 1 Peter 5:8; Isaiah 59: 19; 2 Corinthians 10:4, 5; Isaiah 41:10; Zechariah 4:6.)
9. Life, Death, and Resurrection of Yahusha, the Messiah
Our Savior, Yahusha’s life, was lived in perfect obedience to His Father’s will. His suffering, death, and resurrection fulfilled prophecy of the awaited and promised Messiah, who was to provide the only means of atonement for human sin. Through obedience, all who accept our Savior’s atonement, repenting of sin and seeking forgiveness, are promised the gift of eternal life. Through Him alone the whole creation was to gain a better understanding of the infinite and divine love of the Most High. This perfect atonement vindicates the righteousness of the Father’s law, and the goodness and compassion of His character; for it both condemns our sin and provides the “way” for our forgiveness.
The death of Yahusha is substitutionary and expiatory, reconciling and transforming. His resurrection proclaims the Divine triumph over the forces of evil, and for those who accept the atonement assures their triumph over sin and death, with the reward of eternal life. It declares His Divinity, before whom every knee shall bow.
It is both the Law and His celestial time piece, as worked out in the Temple services, which confirm Yahusha to be the true Messiah, as He lived His life in perfect obedience to the Commandments. He fulfilled the time-centric requirements of lunar-astro calendation, in that He laid down His life on Passover the 14th of the First month, rested in the tomb on the lunar Sabbath the 15th, and was called forth from the tomb on the 16th, the day of the First Fruits offering. None of these three days were in harmony with a Friday, Saturday or a Sunday, as the only other calendar in use at the time was the Roman calendar with an eight day cycling week. The Hebrew people and our Savior had nothing whatever to do with it. An additional point on this is that Saturday was the first day of the eight day week.
(John 3:16; Isaiah 53; 1 Peter 2:21, 22; 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4, 20-22; 2 Corinthians 5:14, 15, 19-21; Romans 1:4; 3:25; 4:25; 8:3, 4; 1 John 2:2; 4:10; Colossians 2:15; Philippians. 2:6-11.)
10. Experience of Salvation
In infinite love and compassion, the Eternal Father consented to allow His Son, who knew no sin, to be sin for us, so that in Him we might be made the righteousness of the Father. As played out in the visual aide of the earthly Sanctuary, now being accomplished in real time in the shamayim Sanctuary above, Yahusha commenced His three part ministry for restoration of the souls of men. As we discover what the Son has done for us, we are led by His Ruach of truth to humbly acknowledge our sinfulness, repent of our transgressions, and exercise trust in Yahusha as the Messiah, the lamb of Yahuah, our substitute and example. This trust which receives salvation comes through the divine power of the Word and is the free gift to all who choose to accept and walk in the light of Scripture.
Through Yahusha we are justified, adopted as sons and daughters of the Eternal Father, and delivered from the deceptive master of sin. Through the Ruach of truth, we are born afresh, justified and renewed. He then writes His law of love in our hearts, and we receive power daily to live a changed and obedient life, by His righteousness. Abiding in Him daily, we become partakers of the divine nature and have the assurance of salvation now and in the final judgment.
He continues today to minister as the Melchizedek Kohen in the shamayim Sanctuary, not made with hands, and will soon take up His role as High Kohen for the final judgment of mankind. Each aspect of His ministry is prophesied and played out in real time within the framework of the Sanctuary system model and His prophetic feasts according to astro-luni-solar time.
(2 Corinthians 5:17-21; John 3:16; Galatians 1:4; 4:4-7; Titus 3:3-7; John 16:8; Galatians 3:13, 14; 1 Peter 2:21, 22; Romans 10:17; Luke 17:5; Mark 9:23, 24; Ephesians 2:5-10; Romans 3:21-26; Colossians 1:13, 14; Romans 8:14-17; Galatians 3:26; John 3:3-8; 1 Peter 1:23; Romans 12:2; Hebrews 8:7-12; Ezekiel 36:25-27; 2 Peter 1:3, 4; Romans 8:1-4; 5:6-10; Hebrews 2:17; Hebrews 4:14-16.)
11. Growing Relationship with our Savior the Messiah
By His death on the cross, Yahusha, the Messiah triumphed over the forces of evil, as the Lamb slain for all sin. He who subjugated the demons during His earthly ministry has broken their power and made certain their ultimate doom. Through trust, His triumph gives us triumph over the evil forces that still seek to control us, as we walk with Him through obedience, in peace, joy, and assurance of His love. Now His Ruach dwells within us and empowers us. Continually committed to our Savior, we are set free from the burden of our past deeds. No longer do we live in the darkness, fear of evil powers, ignorance, and meaninglessness of our former way of life.
In this new freedom, we are called to grow into the likeness of His character, communing with Him daily in prayer, feeding on His Word, meditating on it and on His providence, singing His praises, assembling for worship with fellow believers upon His pre-appointed sacred days. These include New Moon days, seventh-day lunar Sabbaths, and the appointed Feasts in their ascribed lunar months.
We are to ever participate in the mission of the called out to proclaim the good news of Salvation. As we give ourselves in loving service to those around us and in witnessing to His salvation, His constant presence with us, by His Ruach, transforms every moment and every task into a closer walk with Him.
(Psalms 1:1, 2; 23:4; 77:11, 12; Colossians 1:13, 14; 2:6, 14, 15; Luke 10:17-20; Ephesians 5:19, 20; 6:12-18; 1 Thessalonians 5:23; 2 Peter 2:9; 3:18; 2 Corinthians 3:17, 18; Philippians 3:7-14; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; Matthew 20:25-28; John 20:21; Galatians 5:22-25; Romans 8:38, 39; 1 John 4:4; Hebrews 10:25.)
12. The Assembly of Believers, the Ecclesia or Called Out Ones
The “assembly of believers” are the community of believers who have been called out of Babylon, the false churches and organizations who worship not according to the time criteria in Scripture. They confess the specific name of Yahusha, as their Master and Savior. In continuity with the obedient of the Old Testament times, they are called out from the world to join together primarily for worship of our Eternal Father and His Son on the pre-appointed sacred days. These called out ones seek to be in harmony with the time-centric rhythms of the shamayim and unfallen worlds, according to the Temple’s astro-luni-solar calendar model.
These fellowship for instruction in the Word, for service to all mankind, and for the worldwide proclamation of the Good News, as it is depicted in the Sanctuary, with its New Moons, lunar Sabbath Feasts, and annual sacred Feast Days occurring in their preordained lunar months. This assembly of believers derives its authority from Yahusha, who is the incarnate Word, and from the Scriptures, which are the written Word. The assemblies become family to the Eternal Father; adopted by Him as children, its members live on the basis of the new covenant Sanctuary model, which is the original pattern set forth to Moses.
It is the body of Yahusha, a community of believers of which He is the Head. The Assembly is His Bride for whom He died that He might sanctify and cleanse her. At His triumphal return in majesty, He will present her to Himself a righteous people, the obedient of all the ages, the purchase of His blood, not having spot or wrinkle, and without blemish.
(Genesis 12:3; Acts 7:38; Ephesians 4:11-15; 3:8-11; Matthew 28:19, 20; 16:13-20; 18:18; Ephesians 2:19-22; 1:22, 23; 5:23-27; Colossians 1:17, 18; Ezekiel 46:1-3; Revelation 12:1.)
13. Remnant and its Mission
In the last days there will be a time of widespread apostasy, in which a remnant is called out that will obediently keep the commandments of the Father, Yahuah, and have the testimony of His Son, Yahusha. We believe this is occurring now. We believe the Testimony of Yahusha is none other than the sacred prophetic Feast Days of Yahuah that detail the plan of salvation as the Aleph and Tav (Alpha and Omega), from first to last, and beginning to end. This is borne out by the Ruach (Spirit) of Prophecy, as this is the divine plan of salvation for all of mankind.
This calling out has already begun, as it has been revealed the remnant will announce 1) the arrival of the judgment hour is come. 2) Babylon is fallen, because she made all nations drink of the wine of her fornication (Revelation 14:8). 3) If anyone worships the beast, he will receive a mark on his forehead or his hand.
The whole world will ultimately be drawn into one of two camps. Either they will worship according to man made laws and calendation, or they will worship the Creator according to His preordained time principles that rule in the shamayim.
Those who do not research this subject for themselves will experience “an overwhelming surprise” when they discover this final conflict over the Sabbath will not be between Saturday and Sunday, as they had believed. Rather, it will be between the Papal solar calendar and the Creator’s astro-luni-solar timepiece, and their respective sacred days.
The remnant are the obedient who proclaim salvation through Yahusha, and herald the approach of His second advent according to the rhythm of the shamayim Sanctuary’s astro-luni-solar time. They will announce the coming events as typified in the earthly Sanctuary model, which prophetically declare the precise work of Yahusha our Melchizedek Kohen in real time in the Sanctuary above. They will announce the Feast of Trumpets, as the commencement of the Seven Trumpets. They will announce the coming judgment Day of Atonement in the Sanctuary above. Every believer is called to have a personal part in this worldwide witness. They will have knowledge according to the Ruach, the time-centric placement of each sacred Feast Day, and the event typified by each Feast Day.
(Revelation 12:17; 14:6-12; 18:1-4; 2 Corinthians 5:10; Jude 3, 14; 1 Peter 1:16-19; 2 Peter 3:10-14; Revelation 21:1-14.)
14. Unity Among the Body of Believers
The followers of Yahuah are one body with many members, called from every nation, kindred, tongue, people and former assembly. By the great sacrifice of our Savior, Yahusha, we are a new creation; distinctions of race, culture, learning, and nationality, and differences between high and low, rich and poor, male and female, must not be divisive among us. We are all equal in Yahusha, who by His Ruach has bonded us into one fellowship with Him and with one another; we are to serve and be served without partiality or reservation. Through the revelation of our Messiah, Yahusha, as played out in His ministry according to the time-centric Sanctuary and in the Scriptures we share the same beliefs and future expectations, and reach out in one witness to all. This unity has its source in the oneness of Alahim (#430), who has adopts us as His children when we seek to be obedient and in harmony with all His laws and time keeping.
(Romans 12:4, 5; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Matthew 28:19, 20; Psalms 133:1; 2 Corinthians 5:16, 17; Acts 17:26, 27; Galatians 3:27, 29; Colossians 3:10-15; Ephesians 4:14-16; 4:1-6; John 17:20-23.)
Through baptismal submersion, we confess our belief publicly in the death and resurrection of Yahusha, our Redeemer, and testify of our death to sin and of our purpose to walk in newness of life. In this way we acknowledge Him as Master and Savior, of our lives, and are received as members into His congregation of believers worldwide. Baptism is a symbol of our union with our Savior, Yahusha, for the forgiveness of our sins, and walking in newness of life as led by His Ruach. It is by immersion in water, contingent on an affirmation of belief in Yahusha the Messiah that evidence is given of repentance of sin. It is also a demonstration of a willingness to follow instruction in His sacred Word, including the Ten Commandments, and His statutes that govern time according to the time principles that rule in the shamayim, for doctrine, reproof and correction.
(Romans 6:1-6; Colossians 2:12, 13; Acts 16:30-33; 22:16; 2:38; Matthew 28:19, 20.)
16. The Last Supper
The Last Supper meal of bread, and wine/grape juice, was ordained by the Messiah to replace the yearly lamb sacrifice meal, on Passover, the 14th day as counted from the full New Moon in spring. It was to be eaten in remembrance of His sacrifice once each year on the Abib 14, just as Passover had always. No more lambs were to be killed for Passover ever again following that last historical Passover that occurred on the 14th of Abib in A.D. 31. Also, He was to be the prophetic fulfillment, effective in their order as the types portrayed in the Feast Days, met their fulfillments.
Two ordinances ended at the cross. These were the earthly priesthood, and the sacrificing of innocent animals for the sins of mankind. This did not include the ceremonial laws, statutes, judgments or Ten Commandments. All things nailed to the cross including Yahusha our Messiah, were immortalized for all eternity. The Old Covenant in types and shadows ended at the cross, but at the same moment the New Covenant commenced in real time by our Savior’s sacrifice. For it was here they each received their full validation as having eternal substance. Thereby, there was no intention on the part of Yahuah that any of these Feast Days as found in the Torah be dismissed or removed. But, by way of the cross, the door was flung open, as the living Lamb took up residency in the true Temple/Sanctuary in the shamayim above, resuming His three fold ministry on mankind’s behalf, as Kohen and Melchizedek of the Sanctuary above.
The Savior, Yahusha ordained that His obedient followers are to participate in the symbology of unleavened bread and unfermented grape juice, representing His body and blood as an expression of obedience in Him until He returns. As we partake, we not only proclaim Yahusha’s death upon the cross for sin and sinners, but also His resurrection unto eternal life as a promised reward to those who are obedient.
The Savior, Yahusha, also ordained the service of foot washing to signify cleansing, to express a willingness to serve one another after the Savior’s pattern of humility, and to unite our hearts in love. Therefore, in preparation for this sacred Supper it is encouraged that each soul make a full self-examination, repentance, and confession of sin before the Eternal Father.
This ordained Last Supper service is to be annually enjoyed by all who believe that Yahusha is the sacrificial Lamb, who takes away the sin of the world. Although the “Last Supper” was administered by the Messiah on the 13th of Abib, the previous day to the “Passover celebration,” we believe this was done in advance simply because He would was to be the fulfillment of this prophetic sacrifice. This remains the Feast of Passover to be celebrated on the 14th of Abib as counted from the New Moon in the spring of the year, as this is the prophetic date to be fulfilled by the Messiah since it was first instituted in Egypt. But since the Savior lay down His life once and for all, no more lambs need to shed their blood for sin and sinners.
(1 Corinthians 10:16, 17; 11:23-30; Matthew 26:17-30; Revelation 3:20; John 6:48-63; 13:1-17.)
Refer to full article, “The Creators Calendar Units of Time.”
17. Divine Gifts and Ministries
The Eternal Father bestows upon all His obedient followers (ecclesia or called out ones) in every age, divine gifts, which each member is to employ in loving ministry for the common good of His (ecclesia) and of general humanity. Given by the agency of the His Ruach, who apportions to each member as He wills, the gifts provide all abilities and ministries needed sustain His followers and to fulfill their divinely ordained functions. According to the Scriptures, these gifts include such ministries as trust, healing, prophecy, proclamation, teaching, administration, reconciliation, compassion, and self-sacrificing service for the help and encouragement of others. Some members are called of the Father and endowed by His Ruach for functions recognized by the called out assemblies in pastoral, evangelistic, apostolic, and teaching ministries particularly needed to equip the assemblies for service, to build up the believers to spiritual maturity, and to foster unity and knowledge of the Eternal Father. When members employ these divine gifts as trustworthy stewards of His love and compassion, the assembly is protected from the destructive influence of false doctrine and traditions of men. Thus the pure “light of truth” is poured into His obedient assemblies, preparing them according to the Father’s will.
(Romans 12:4-8; 1 Corinthians 12:9-11, 27, 28; Ephesians 4:8, 11-16; Acts 6:1-7; 1 Timothy 3:1-13; 1 Peter 4:10, 11.)
18. The Law
The great principles of the Eternal Father’s law are embodied in the Ten Commandments, Statutes and Judgments and exemplified in the life, in the death of Yahusha and His ministration in the shamayim Sanctuary/Temple. These ten principles express His love, His will and purposes concerning human conduct and relationships and are binding upon all people in every age. These precepts are the basis of His covenant with His people and will be the standard in the final judgment.
Through His Ruach, the Ten Commandments point out sin in our hearts and awaken a sense of need for a Savior. Salvation is the free gift of Divine love and not the result of human works, but its fruitage is obedience to His Commandments. This obedience develops character and results in a sense of well-being and brings each willing heart into submission and harmony with the will of the Eternal Father.
To be in one accord will include being obedient to His Laws, but also these will seek to be synchronized according to Yahuah’s astro-lunar-solar time-keeping. They will assemble to worship on New Moons, lunar seventh-day Sabbaths, and obediently keep each of the sacred Feast Days according to their lunar months. It is an evidence of our love and honor for the Most High. Obedience demonstrates the power of Yahusha to transform lives.
Note: All references to “months” in Scripture refer to lunar months. The term “month” can be translated in one of three ways: 1) New Moon; 2) Lunar month or 3) First day of the Lunar month. The months identified in Scripture are always lunar and are never consistently in harmony with the modern calendar devised by Rome to be independent of the lights in the shamayim that rule time.
Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew Lexicon states: Chodesh (OT #2320) means: the new moon, moon, first day of the month, lunar month.
Many voices continue to scoff and seek to dismiss the significance of the New Moon (#2320 חדשׁ chodesh) as being nothing more than a description of a Gregorian “month,” the truth is that there is always a first day of any given month, and the word “moon” identifies it as a lunar month. Never does chodesh refer to a solar month, as is popularly presumed today. Try, try as one might, the New Moon can NEVER be removed from the lunar month any more than “an end” can be removed from a rope, stick, or measuring device.
(Exodus 20:1-17; Psalms 40:7, 8; Matthew 22:36-40; Deuteronomy 28:1-14; Matthew 5:17-20; Hebrews 8:8-10; John 15:7-10; Ephesians 2:8-10; 1 John 5:3; Romans 8:3, 4; Psalms 19:7-14; Ezekiel 46:3; Exodus 12:1-3; Isaiah 66:23.)
19. The Lunar Sabbath
The beneficent Creator, after the six days of Creation, rested on His sacred and set-apart seventh-day and instituted “His” Sabbath for all people as a memorial of Creation upon earth. The timing for this first Sabbath was synchronized according to the astro-lunar-solar rhythms of the shamayim and the New Jerusalem. Genesis and Exodus record that the Creator imputed the timing of His sacred Sabbaths unto mankind, as a result, the timing of the work days are His as well, and pre-existed His creations of earth.
Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of Yahuah your Alahim. Exodus 20:8-10
Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am Yahuah who sanctifies you. Exodus31:13
Moreover I also gave them My Sabbaths, to be a sign between them and Me, that they might know that I am Yahuah who sanctifies them. Ezekiel 20:12-13
But if the Creator’s calendar was astro-lunar-solar, why didn’t He create the moon on New Moon day, prior to the first day of creation, if He intended mankind to follow the count from the New Moon for months, weeks, and Sabbaths?
Everyone knows that there is one thing the Eternal Father cannot do. He can not lie! However, there is an additional thing that He cannot do. He could not work the work of creation on any of His sacred rest days, although we know He can heal the infirmed. In this case that sacred rest day is the New Moon day. While these concepts may be new to you, astro-lunar-solar timekeeping was fundamental to Yahuah from eternity past, and will be for all eternity future.
When the Creator created earth, He imputed to it His eternal New Moon rhythm, lunar Sabbath, and His work days, in the precise and synchronized cadence as that of His sacred shamayim city.
It was by design that He postponed the creation of the sun, moon, and stars as a testimony that earth was wholly dependent upon His eternal time rhythm. Thus, the Creator hung earth, that first week of creation, upon the eternal New Moon, illustrating that earth did not have a time system and rhythm all its own, independent of His eternal time system. As a result, the day prior to the creation of earth, Alahim the Eternal (Father and Son) were in the courts above receiving worship upon His New Moon day, as Yahuah’s time is strictly astro-lunar-solar.
The fourth commandment of the eternal Father’s unchangeable law requires the observance of this seventh-day Sabbath as a day of rest and worship in harmony with the teaching and practice of Yahusha the Messiah, who was the Master of the Sabbath. Scripture reveals in multiple ways that the Creator’s true seventh-day Sabbath is to be counted from the day after the New Moon day. If this is true, then neither Saturday, nor Sunday can be sacred unto the Eternal Father. He only receives worship upon His preordained qodesh (sacred) days.
The Sabbath is to be a day of delightful communion with the Eternal Father and one another. It is a symbol of our redemption in Yahusha, a sign of our sanctification, a token of our allegiance, and a foretaste of the future eternal kingdom.
The lunar Sabbath is Yahuah’s perpetual sign of His eternal covenant between the Creator and the created. Each calendar date is beaconed by the lunar phases and their positions relative to the starry constellations, which announce the new date will commence for the duration of 24 hours from sunrise to sunrise. However the joyful sacred hours of the New Moon and Sabbath are from sunrise to sunset only, a twelve hour period of daylight. This is a celebration of the Eternal Alahim’s (#430) depicts both Father and Son together) creative and redemptive acts.
While all the world has wondered after the beast power in keeping either Saturday or Sunday as a sacred rest day, we are now called to come out of this false pagan practice. In order to enter at the gate into the courtyard of the sanctuary, the gate must be open. The Shofar is sounded at the sighting of the full New Moon at sunset. The next morning at sunrise is the commencement of the sacred portion of the New Moon day. This day is the sign marker for numbering both the lunar month days and the lunar week days and Sabbaths. As a result, the first lunar Sabbath of the month, as counted from New Moon day, is both the seventh-day of the week and the 8th day of the month. Therefore each month the seventh-day Sabbath will consistently fall on the 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th lunar calendar dates.
(Genesis 2:1-3; Exodus 20:8-11; Luke 4:16; Isaiah 56:5, 6; 58:13, 14; Matthew 12:1-12; Exodus 31:13-17; Ezekiel 20:12, 20; Deuteronomy 5:12-15; Hebrews 4:1-11; Leviticus 23:32; Mark 1:32; Ezekiel 46:1-3; Isaiah 66:23; Jeremiah 6:16-17; Jeremiah 7:1-3; John 11:9.)

Refer to article, A Case for the Lunar Sabbath: Rebuttal to Angel Rodriguez
We are the stewards of the Eternal Father, entrusted by Him with His lunar-astro time, opportunities, abilities, possessions, and the gifts of the earth and its resources. We are responsible to Him for their proper use. We acknowledge His ownership by obedient service to Him and our fellow men, and by returning tithes and giving offerings for the proclamation of His Good News and the support and growth of His called out assemblies. Stewardship is a privilege given to us by our Eternal Father for nurture in love and triumph over selfishness and covetousness. The obedient steward rejoices in the rewards that come to others as a result of their own obedience.
(Genesis 1:26-28; 2:15; 1 Chronicles. 29:14; Haggai 1:3-11; Malachi 3:8-12; 1 Corinthians 9:9-14; Matthew 23:23; 2 Corinthians 8:1-15; Romans 15:26, 27.)
21. New Life and Behavior
We are called to walk in our master’s foot steps, a people who think, feel, and act in harmony with the principles of Yahuah, the Most High. The Ruach of Yahusha can only recreate in us the character of our eternal Father when we choose to only become involved in those things which will produce purity, health, and joy in our lives. This means that our amusement and entertainment should meet the highest standards of divine-like taste and beauty. While recognizing cultural differences, our dress is to be simple, modest, and neat, befitting those who’s true beauty does not consist of outward adornment, but in the imperishable ornament of a gentle and contrite heart.
Because our bodies are the temple in which He may dwell by His Ruach, we are to care for them intelligently. Along with adequate exercise and rest, we are to adopt the most healthful diet possible and abstain from the unclean foods identified in the Scriptures. Since alcoholic beverages, tobacco, and the irresponsible use of drugs and narcotics are harmful to our bodies, we are to abstain from them as well. Instead, we are to engage in whatever brings our thoughts and bodies into harmony with our Savior and the eternal Father, who desire for us true joy, goodness and health.
(Romans 12:1, 2; 1 John 2:6; Ephesians 5:1-21; Phil. 4:8; 2 Corinthians 10:5; 6:14-7:1; 1 Peter 3:1-4; 1 Corinthians 6:19, 20; 10:31; Leviticus 11:1-47; 3 John 2.)
22. Marriage and the Family
Marriage was divinely established in Eden and affirmed by Yahusha to be a lifelong union between one man and one woman in loving companionship. For the believers, the marriage commitment is to the Eternal Father, as well as to the spouse, and should be entered into only between partners who share a common set of beliefs.
Mutual love, honor, respect, and responsibility are the fabric of this relationship, which is to reflect the love, sanctity, closeness, and permanence of the relationship between Yahusha and His called out ones. The Eternal Father honors the family and intends that its members shall assist each other toward complete maturity. Parents are to bring up their children to love and obey their Eternal Father, as well as their earthly parents. By their example and their words they are to teach them that He is a loving disciplinarian, ever tender and caring, who wants them to become members of His family of obedient stewards with their sights set on eternity.
(Matthew 19:3-9; John 2:1-11; 2 Corinthians 6:14; Ephesians 5:21-33; Matthew 5:31, 32; 1 Corinthians 7:10, 11; Exodus 20:12; Ephesians 6:1-4; Deuteronomy 6:5-9; Prov. 22:6; Malachi 4:5, 6.)
23. Our Savior’s Ministry in the Shamayim Sanctuary
There is a Temple/sanctuary above, the true tabernacle which Alahim (the Father and Son) set up and not man. The earthly sanctuary/Temple was only a shadowy copy of this great original in both function, and time-centric specifications. These time specifications are born out in His sacred and set-apart days, which are both commemorative and prophetic. These are full New Moon days, seventh-day Sabbaths, and yearly sacred Feast Days in their appointed months. The Sanctuary’s purpose was to demonstrate to sinful mankind the three phase provision being made above to restore mankind back to their Creator and Redeemer. In it our Savior, Yahusha, who ministers continually on our behalf, makes available to believers the benefits of His atoning sacrifice that He offered once for all upon the Cross as our substitutiary sacrificial Lamb.
The “Jewish economy” was entirely based upon the luni-astro rhythms of the Sanctuary/Temple services.
The first things we consider with regard to economy are time and money. Yet, it also includes the laws of Yahuah, with each part played out in the visual aide of the Sanctuary (Temple) Service. All three parts of this detailed economy define the divinely preordained system of trade, trade for the redemption and restoration of mankind. A plan developed in the Sanctuary above, whereby the Creator Himself would trade His perfect eternal life, as a ransom for the souls of men. All who confess with penitent hearts to Yahusha, their Priest, and walk in obedience to a new life, freely receive this unequal trade. They are then transformed into His image, and given passage to an eternal reward with the righteous followers.
The Sanctuary and its inherent astro-luni-solar time system continues uninterrupted in the shamayim above and steadfastly remains in perpetual conflict with a Saturday Sabbath or Sunday Lord’s Day that are most often recognized by the world at large on a continuous weekly cycle, the witty invention of men. But the two can never be harmonized. A current example of this is found among the Seventh-day Adventist churches of the Samoa Islands following the moving of the International Dateline. Refer to article, Samoa’s Dateline Paradox.
The study of the Sanctuary system and all its ramifications must remain a foundational truth of all Yahusha’s followers awaiting His Second Advent.
Have its truths somehow diminished, or have our views of them been altered? Which gets a more popular response today— to declare the sacred feasts and the Sanctuary system ended at the cross, or to declare the Papal Roman calendar is a fraud? One of these is an impostor, because just as oil and water don’t mix, the Sanctuary system with its astro-lunar-solar feasts cannot be harmonized with the rhythms of the modern Roman calendar. Could this be the underlying reason it has become so unpopular to discuss the Sanctuary and its sacred feasts of late? By eliminating the sacred feasts, we must eliminate the Sanctuary system, both earthly and in the shamayim (heavens), then by eliminating these we can finally eliminate the “infamous” lunar-astro calendar that causes us to be out of harmony with Rome. In doing so, the organized churches have swapped truth for error and will not be able to prepare their people for the final events of the soon return of the Savior. It appears there is a fox or two in the hen house.
Any church who claims either the earthly or sanctuary above is the foundation of their beliefs, yet keeps the rhythm of the modern Roman calendar for Sabbaths, while ignoring the New Moons and the sacred feast days, adheres to two opposing doctrines.
All subsequent generations can verify and authenticate that indeed Yahusha was the promised Messiah, the redeemer, as He perfectly met all the requirements of divine laws and statutes of the ordained lunar-astro time units. He had to lay down His life on Passover, the fourteenth day, as counted from the “full” New Moon and not a spurious pagan calendar. He was to remain in the tomb on the Sabbath, but rise on the sixteenth day (as counted from the New Moon), the day the First Fruits offering was waved before Yahuah. Did this occur on time? Did this occur upon astro-luni-solar principles? YES! YES! “For He changes not.” Malachi 3:6. Did this occur according to Roman calendation principles? NO! Might the two in any way harmonize with one another as Rome and her daughters (protestant churches) suggests? NO!
(Hebrews 8:1-5; 4:14-16; 9:11-28; 10:19-22; 1:3; 2:16, 17; Daniel. 7:9-27; 8:13, 14; 9:24-27; Numbers 14:34; Ezekiel 4:6; Leviticus 16; Revelation 14:6, 7; 20:12; 14:12; 22:12; Leviticus 23:1-39; Isaiah 66:23; Ezekiel 46:1-3.)
24. Second Coming of the Messiah, Yahusha
The second coming of Yahusha is the great expectation of His obedient and true followers who are scattered throughout the world, as the grand climax of the Good News. The Savior’s coming will be literal, personal, visible, audible, and worldwide event. Absolutely nothing about it will be secret.
When He returns, the righteous dead will be resurrected, and together with the righteous living will be “caught up together to meet Yahusha in the air” and taken to the New Jerusalem and be with Him for all eternity, but the unrighteous will die.
The nearly complete fulfillment of prophecy, together with the present condition of the world, indicates that the second coming is imminent. The year of this climatic event has not been revealed, although we have it on Scriptural authority that it will occur on the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles as defined by the time-centric astro-luni-solar calendar of Scripture and the ancient Hebrew Sanctuary service. We are therefore exhorted to be ready at all times.
(Titus 2:13; Hebrews 9:28; John 14:1-3; Acts 1:9-11; Matthew 24:14; Revelation 1:7; Matthew 24:43, 44; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; 1 Corinthians 15:51-54; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10; 2:8; Revelation 14:14-20; 19:11-21; Matthew 24; Mark 13; Luke 21; 2 Timothy 3:1-5; 1 Thessalonians 5:1-6.)
25. Death and Resurrection
According to the divine oracles of truth in Scripture, “The wages of sin is death, but the gift of Yahuah (the Father) is eternal life through Yahusha, our Master.” Romans 6:23. Because we sin, we must die. After death, we will sleep in the dust of the earth until our Savior wakens and resurrects the righteous at His second coming. The Eternal Father, will grant eternal life to His redeemed. Until that day, death is an unconscious state for all people.
There are two resurrections. (Revelation 20:5-6) In the first resurrection when Yahusha, who is our life source appears at His second coming. The resurrected righteous and the living righteous will be glorified with eternal bodies and caught up to meet Yahusha, their Redeemer, in the air. It is at this time that they will be taken together to live in the eternal homes He has prepared for them in in the Sacred City. The second resurrection, is for the unrighteous, those who have rejected the Savior’s call of love and compassion. These will be resurrected a thousand years later, but only for a short time, to be witnesses of the climax of the great controversy between Yahusha and Satan.
The hell fires spoken of in Scripture are reserved for the very end of this controversy and are then prepared for Satan and His demonic messengers along with all those who refused the call of eternal compassion and love. As these were unwilling to accept the Savior’s atoning death upon the cross to cover their sin, they must give of their own lives. Only those who have accepted the free gift of the Savior are granted eternal life. All others have made their own choice to forfeit.
The fire of hell has not yet been kindled. Not a single soul has burned or is burning in hell yet. This supposition was used primarily by Rome through the sale of indulgences, to fund the building of St. Peter’s Basilica. The concept of our loving Eternal Father torturing sinners in fires of hell forever is a theory born of the Devil himself, to cast contempt upon our loving Father and His Son.
(Romans 6:23; 1 Timothy 6:15, 16; Ecclesiastes 9:5, 6; Psalms 146:3, 4; John 11:11-14; Colossians 3:4; 1 Corinthians 15:51-54; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; John 5:28, 29; Revelation 20:1-10.)
26. Millennium and the End of Sin
The millennium is the thousand-year reign of Yahusha with His righteous followers in the New Jerusalem between the first and second resurrections. During this time the wicked dead will be judged; the earth will be utterly desolate, without living human inhabitants, but it will be occupied by Satan and his demonic messengers. At its close Yahusha with His righteous obedient and the entire Sacred City, the New Jerusalem will descend from its former place to earth. The unrighteous dead will then be resurrected, and with Satan and his demonic messengers will surround the city; but fire from the Father will consume them and cleanse the earth. The universe will thus be freed of sin and sinners forever. As a result, hell is not burning today, nor will it burn for eternity.
(Revelation 20; 1 Corinthians 6:2, 3; Jeremiah 4:23-26; Revelation 21:1-5; Malachi 4:1; Ezekiel 28:18, 19.)
27. New Earth
The redeemed who have been restored of earth will have an eternal and perfect dwelling with their Creator, and Savior, and will live free from sin, as sin will be forever extinguished. On the new earth, the eternal home of the saved, pure and perfect righteousness will exist in a renewed and perfect environment for everlasting life, love, joy, and learning in our Savior’s presence. It is with the delivered people of the earth, that our Savior, Yahusha will dwell, in perfect peace, as suffering and death will have passed away. The great struggle between the Messiah, Yahusha and Satan will have ended, and sin will cease to exist. All created things, will eternally declare that Alahim is fair, and righteous in His judgments, and is the embodiment of supreme love; and He shall reign forever and ever.
(2 Peter 3:13; Isaiah 35; 65:17-25; Matthew5:5; Revelation 21:1-7; 22:1-5; 11:15.)
28. The Good News About Hell
The Good News about Hell is that it is neither burning today, nor will it burn forever. Matthew 25:41 tells us that “hell” is to be prepared for the devil and his demonic messengers. It is no secret that with the affairs of the world as they are today, the devil and his demonic messengers are still alive and well. Therefore, hell can not be burning as of yet. Furthermore, the Scriptural record of the burning of Sodom and Gomorrah by fire and brimstone defines, in the exact same language the effects of eternal burning hell fire. When the smoke lifted, the fire had gone out and only ashes remained. There was neither skeletal nor pottery remains within the territories of the five cities of the plains. All was utterly consumed and the fire went out. Jude 7. Notice that the effects of the fire are eternal, but the fire itself is not.
According to Matthew 13:40-42, absolutely no one will be thrown into the burning hell fire that is prepared for Satan and His messengers until the appointed time at the end of this world and following the 1,000 years. It will not occur until a time after the resurrection of the righteous following the second coming of the Savior that the unrighteous will receive their reward of the second death by hell fire (Revelation 21:8).
The belief that teaches when an unrighteous person dies he goes directly to hell and there burns “forever and ever,” was a teaching spread “for profit” by the Catholic Church for the purpose of building their expensive basilicas and cathedrals on earth. It was also promoted by the Prince of Darkness to place our loving Eternal Father and His Son in the cruelest light, even worse than the most horrible atrocities every conceived by the evilest of men.
Thirty-one times in the Tanakh (OT) “Sheol,” translated as “hell,” simply means the grave. Ten times in the Renewed Covenant (NT) “Hades” was translated as “hell,” which also just meant the grave. Twelve times “Gehenna” was translated as “hell,” which means the place of burning. This was a literal place where trash and dead animals were dumped. If “Gehenna” was a place of eternal burning, then it would still be burning today, but it is not.
Have you ever stopped to think that if the fires of hell were to burn forever, it would actually perpetuate sin and make sin’s eradication impossible? Those who promote this belief are in effect calling the Eternal Father a liar. An eternal hell of torturing the unrighteous is simply not part of our loving Father’s plan. Rather, He said, “the wages of sin is death, but the gift of Yahuah is eternal life through Yahusha the Messiah.” Romans 6:23.
He always means what He says. Death is an absence of life, and it is to be the reward/punishment of all those who reject the free gift of salvation as rendered on the cross by our loving Savior. The reward of the obedient followers will be life without end, without sin and death, in the presence of the Lamb, first in the New Jerusalem above for a thousand years, but ultimately in the earth recreated and restored to its original beauty. This is the great expectation of Yahuah’s people. Wouldn’t you like to participate in the marvels of that day?
2 Peter 2:9; John 12:48; Matthew 13:40-42; John 5:28-29; Job 21:30-32; Romans 6:23; James 1:15: John 3:16; Revelation 21:8; Psalms 37:20; Malachi 4:1; Psalms 145:20; Psalms 21:9; 2 Peter 3:10; Revelation 20:9; Proverbs 11:31; Revelation 22:12: Matthew 16:27; Luke 12:47-48; Revelation 21:1-4; Malachi 4:3; Matthew 5:30; Matthew 10:28; Ezekiel 18:20; Revelation 20:10; Ezekiel 28:18-19; Matthew 25:41; Revelation 20:15; Psalms 37:10, 20; Ezekiel 33:11; Luke 9:56; Isaiah 28:21; Nahum 1:9; Isaiah 65:17; Revelation 21:3, 4.
29. The Creator’s Lunar-Astro Calendar
Scripture reveals through the details of the shamayim Sanctuary/Temple and its timely full New Moons and Feast Days, that Yahuah’s time keeping is based on the three part orchestration of the sun by day, and moon and stars working together by night, as ordained at creation. Earth’s time-keeping is not its own, but is a perfect copy of the eternal.
Then Alahim said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the shamayim to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years . . . Genesis 1:14 NKJV
If there is any question over what is meant by the term “signs” as it relates to time, the verse below clarifies the epic import the Creator places upon His sacred seventh-day Sabbaths.
Moreover, I also gave them My Sabbaths, to be a sign (#226 owth) between them and Me, that they might know that I am Yahuah who sanctifies them. Ezekiel 20:12
The Scripture clarifies that the Creator’s Sabbaths are the “signs” and below it is discovered that lunar months, and by extension their appointed feasts, as defined by the phases of the moon are the “seasons.”
He appointed the moons for seasons (#4150 mo’ed). . . Psalms 104:19
It was preordained that mankind may be synchronized with the rhythms of the universe in coming before their Creator for worship. Not only did the Creator give us His Sabbath for signs, but not perceived by many, He also imputed to mankind His sacred New Moon day.
The fact that the sun, moon, and stars were created on the fourth day of the creation week was a preordained “signal” to demonstrate to mankind that earth’s “time” was not independent from that of the Eternal Father. Rather, earth’s “time” was hung from the Eternal’s own portals of time, upon Yahuah’s eternal full New Moon. Just as the Tree of Life was placed in the garden, fully endowed with fruit on the third day, all of creation was created in their complete form with apparent age. Nothing was created as seeds, eggs, or babies. Likewise, on the fourth day the celestial bodies were created and placed in their precise positions in the starry shamayim, reflecting by their positions the passage of the first recorded days of creation. As a result, earth’s first week and month were set, as a clock would be, according to the Eternal’s clock and New Moon.
Earth was never intended to operate on an independent time-system from that of the entire universe. This was the missing puzzle piece in the Genesis account of the week. It was the eternal full New Moon of the Most High that synchronized earths count for days, weeks, and months, and years. Now Genesis can be harmonized with the remainder of the Scriptures. It was never intended, nor can the Creator’s units of time ever be harmonized with the modern Roman Gregorian.
It is hard for mankind to fathom that from the Creator’s perspective, time was ongoing, while earth’s time had only just begun. The Eternal Father’s time has always commenced with a full New Moon day, breaking the cycle of weeks. The 8th day of the month, as counted from New Moon day, is the seventh-day of the week, an eternal sacred seventh-day Sabbath of Yahuah’s, past present and future. Here again He would be resting and receiving worship from all His creation, but now for the first time earthlings were to be included in the Creator’s sacred day of rest and worship.
Earth’s sun, moon, and stars were not created, or their time set and placed in their celestial positions until the fourth day. This was to testify that “time” upon earth was designed after the pattern of, and in harmony with the Eternal City. While the Eternal’ time system is earth’s benefactor, only those who are obedient to its covenant principles are the beneficiaries. Revelation represents this group of people as a pure woman with the following unique qualities:
Now a great sign appeared in shamayim (heaven): a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Revelation 12:1-2
In the Eternal City the same calendar rhythm instituted at creation will be utilized. According to the following verse, will its week be based on Roman principles that cycle without end, independent of the moon, or will its week be in harmony with the moon?
22 “For according as the shamayim (starry abode), the New Moons, and the earth: The New Moon that I fashioned and placed in its order was appointed for My chief corner [stone],” declares Yahuah. Wherefore, it establishes and confirms your name and your descendants.” 23 And it shall come to pass from its abundance— New Moon by New Moon you shall keep; and from its abundance— Sabbath by Sabbath you shall keep. It shall lead all flesh to prostrate in worship, according to My chief corner [stone],” declares Yahuah. Isaiah 66:22-23 The Creator’s Calendar Restored Hebrew Text
There is no getting around the importance that the Eternal Father places upon His sacred New Moon days and seventh-day Sabbaths. New Moon days mark the commencement of each month, week and year. Try as one might, the Creator’s true Sabbaths cannot be located any other way. It is the detailed criteria as outlined in the Feasts of Leviticus 23:1-39 that define the weeks and Sabbath’s as being counted from the New Moon day, in the exact same way the dates for the month are counted from the New Moon day.
Mankind has been honored by their loving Eternal Father, as He gave us the same time system, utilizing a sun, moon, and stars, as those that define time in the Temple courts above. Nothing is different. There are no wall calendars there designating when to come and worship before the Most High Eternal Father. All the unfallen worlds would also have suns, moons, and stars that keep the exact same time system. All are in perfect harmony, with more precision than a Swiss watch. Could it be the result of the rebelliousness of man’s heart that we have crafted a different calendar upon different principles, causing us to worship, we know not who, on days we know not why. May our wonderful Savior have compassion upon us all as we seek to expand our knowledge of His ways.
(Genesis 1:14; Exodus 12:1-4; Ezekiel 46:1-3; Isaiah 66:23; Jeremiah 6:16-17; Jeremiah 7:1-3; Revelation 12:1-2; Ezekiel 20:12; Psalms 104:19.)
30. Constantine’s Easter Controversy with the Messiah’s Quartodecimen.
At the end of time the critical issue to stir up hostility from the religious leaders will be the return of His obedient followers to the Creator’s preordained luni-astro time-system. These will identify that the starry shamayim declare the majesty of Yahuah and is profoundly connected to the Messiah’s prophetic fulfillment of His three part ministration, which commenced at the cross and continues until He returns in the clouds.
The heated conflict will increase as the Sabbath is demonstrated to be reckoned according to the count from the full New Moon along with all the Feast days, including Passover. This will be what creates the great conflict between Rome and the elect just as it did during the Great Easter Controversy, which began in the 2nd A.D. and for the most part ended in the 4th century.
The issue of those early days will be repeated as Rome seeks once again to stamp out and destroy from the face of the earth all the modern Quartodecimen (Fourteener) schismatics (this is the name dubbed on the Nazarenes by the Romans). This is the name recorded by Eusebius that represented all those who refused to celebrate Passover on any day other than the 14th day as counted from the New Moon, nor were they willing to call Passover, “Easter.” It is this issue which identifies that the calendar of the ancient Hebrews, as well as the Messiah and His obedient followers, continued to be the celestial astro-luni-solar calendar of Adam, Noah, Abraham and Moses. Simply put, in our Savior’s day Israel did not follow the planetary calendar as Rome would have us believe. The Easter Controversy is the pivotal proof that Passover and Easter could never be harmonized because these opposing days were located upon a completely different calendar model.
The question relating to the observance of Easter [Passover], which was agitated in the time of Anicetus and Poly carp, and afterwards in that of Victor, was still undecided. It was one of the principal reasons for convoking the council of Nice, being the most important subject to be considered after the Arian controversy. It appears that the churches of Syria and Mesopotamia continued to follow the custom of the Jews, and celebrated Easter on the fourteenth day of the moon, whether falling on Sunday or not. A Historical View of the Council of Nice, p. 22, translated by Isaac Boyle, D.D. New York: Thomas N. Staintford, 637 Broadway, 1856. [Emphasis Mine]
There was a considerable discussion raised about this time, in consequence of a difference of opinion respecting the observance of the paschal season. The churches of all Asia, guided by a remoter tradition, supposed that they ought to keep the fourteenth day of the moon for the festival of the Savior’s Passover, in which day the Jews were commanded to kill the paschal lamb; and it was incumbent on them, at all times, to make an end of the fast on this day, on whatever day of the [Roman] week it should happen to fall. The Ecclesiastical History of Eusebius Pamphilus, Bishop of Caesarea, in Palestine, translated by Christian Frederick Cruse, D.D., Tenth Edition, Chapter 23, p. 207. 1850. [Emphasis Mine]
But notwithstanding the decision of the council [of Nicaea] there were some Quartodecimens, as they were termed; who remained pertinaciously attached to the celebration of Easter on the fourteenth of the moon, and among others the Audeans, schismatics of Mesopotamia. They found fault with the council, reproachfully remarking, that this was the first time that the ancient tradition [of properly locating Passover by the moon], through compliance for Constantine, had been departed from. A Historical View of the Council of Nice, p. 23, translated by Isaac Boyle, D.D. New York: Thomas N. Staintford, 637 Broadway, 1856. [Emphasis Mine]
Rome would not stand for such disharmony in calendation or with regard to her “holidays,” as they wanted no connection to the Jews. Thus, Rome put forth her first edict as early as the 2nd Century A.D. Victor, Bishop of Rome, commanded that all Christians under his jurisdiction must celebrate Easter upon the first Sunday of the Roman calendar, after the full moon that followed the vernal equinox. This was to ensure that Easter would never occur upon the Passover and its Jewish astro-luni-solar calendar.
The early Christians from the Roman East would have none of it and refused to comply. But by the 3rd Century A.D., at the Council of Nicaea, Constantine the Great set forth a decree that all must comply or die. Some complied, but many died for the truth as they knew their Messiah was both the promise and the fulfillment of the Passover typology defined in the Tanakh, the Old Testament Scripture. Thus, the ancient calendar was stricken from the minds of the people as they were forced to comply to Rome’s artificial planetary wall calendar with its weeks that cycled without end.
The sacred Feast Days and Sabbaths continue to be prophetic astro-luni-solar markers of the final events yet to come, as they will also be fulfilled by the same Messiah, our Redeemer and Deliverer. It is the sacred Feast Days that that foster the “testimony of Yahusha” as the Ruach of Prophecy. As the restoration work of mankind continues in the courts above, it is primarily the full New Moon among the constellations of the shamayim that declare and define the ever continual worship rhythm of the Eternal Father.
31. Sacred and Set-apart Feast Days
A distinction is made by Yahuah between the earthly Temple/Sanctuary and the one in the shamayim above. One is made with hands (the hands of man) as instructed according to the pattern shown Moses on the mount. (Hebrews 8:5) The other is in the courts above and is fashioned according to the Renewed Covenant, not made with hands, and is the divine system, the original pattern for human restoration. It is to this system that the earthly sanctuary (old covenant) pointed. So while the earthly priesthood and sacrifice came to an end at the cross, in shadows and types, it marked the prophetic commencement of our Messiah’s work and ministry in real time, in the shamayim of the set-apart and most Sacred Temple/Sanctuary.
Each feast (sacred convocation) transpired at its appointed time each year as a rehearsal of its prophetic counterpart. These prophetic counterparts will continue to unfold, one by one, in real time, as they follow the movements of our Messiah in shamayim places according to the movements of the sun, moon and stars for astro-luni-solar time as the preordained time pattern shown Moses on the mount. (Hebrews 8:5; Ezekiel 43:10) This celestial timepiece did not disappear either at the cross or at the destruction of Jerusalem, when the earthly Temple was ultimately destroyed. Rather, our focus is then directed to the continuation of this time system in the shamayim Sanctuary, where our Savior commenced His ministry on our behalf, for the restoration of souls. While the work of the shamayim Sanctuary will one day reach its completion, the celestial time upon which it was placed, will continue into eternity.
23 And it shall come to pass from its abundance— New Moon by New Moon you shall keep; and from its abundance— Sabbath by Sabbath you shall keep. It shall lead all flesh to prostrate in worship, according to My chief corner [stone],” declares Yahuah. Isaiah 66:22-23 The Creator’s Calendar Restored Hebrew Text
The Feast of the Seventh-day— Weekly Rehearsal of the Thousand Year Sabbath Rest in the New Jerusalem – Leviticus 23:1-3:
The seventh-day Sabbath is the first Feast Day listed in the lineup of feasts in Leviticus 23:1-3. However, there are two distinctions between the seventh-day Sabbath Feast Day and the other yearly Feast Days that follow in Leviticus 23:4-44. The first difference between them is the intervals in which each occurs. Verse 3 states the Sabbath is to occur on “day seven” each week as a sacred convocation. Verse 4 states the other Feast Days are to be sacred convocations and are to occur in their specific “months” (חדשׁים #4150 mo’edim).
The second distinction between the “day seven” feasts and the “month” feasts is as follows. Each of the lunar month Feast Days are rehearsals that define the prophetic events of the shamayim Sanctuary to be played out in their specific order and in real time as they are counted from the full New Moon. In contrast, the “day seven” feasts are weekly reminders and promises that the entire plan of salvation will not exceed one “Sabbath Complete,” a period of seven thousand years. In other words each weekly Sabbath is a reminder of our Creator’s love and a promise that sin and death, pain and suffering will all be abolished by His work in the Sanctuary above. It is this work that is completed by the end of six thousand years of earth’s history. Then at the commencement of this great one thousand year Sabbath rest, our Savior, Yahusha will return at His second coming for His obedient followers. The “seventh” thousand year period of time will be spent with their Redeemer.
Notice that both the “day seven” feasts and the “month” feasts are given the same status of “sacred convocations.” Unequivocally, sacred convocations are feast days.
Feast of Passover (Pasch)— Annual Rehearsal of the Prophetic Lamb Slain for Sin – Leviticus 23:5
The spring Feast of Passover is the first lunar month appointed feast (sacred convocation) of the year. According to Exodus 12 and Leviticus 23, it commences between the evenings of the 14th day of the first month of Abib, counting from the “full” New Moon day. This is a point to consider in all its ramifications in Genesis 1, as well. Passover is always the 6th day of the week, also known as the preparation day. It is always on or very near the dark conjunction lunar phase. The day following Passover is always the seventh-day Sabbath, which is also always a High Sabbath, because on it the Feast of Unleavened Bread commences. The Hebrew Tanakh (OT) and Greek Renewed Covenant (NT) never refer to Passover as Friday. It is the first of the Appointed Feasts, which Yahusha the Messiah fulfilled precisely, as He died during the daylight hours of the 14th, between the evenings.
Passover is only found by counting to the fourteenth day following the full New Moon. This time system is often called the luni-solar calendar, but we have discovered according to the astroplots at the top of this article that the true and original Creator’s Calendar is the Lunar-Astro timepiece. But notice that the seventh-day Sabbath is consistently located on the day following Passover, this fact “forever fixes” Passover to the same count from New Moon day and sixth day of the week.
Feast of Unleavened Bread (Matsa)— Annual Rehearsal of the Prophetic Bread of Life – His Life for Ours – Leviticus 23:6-8
The spring Feast of Unleavened Bread begins at sunrise on the specific day the Scripture named the “15th day” of the first month of Abib, counting from the New Moon. This second feast begins at the commencement of the seventh-day Sabbath, making the first day of this seven-day feast a “High Sabbath” each and every year. This Feast Day ends on the sixth-day of the week, the 21st of the month. The very next day is the 22nd day of the month counting from New Moon day and it is the seventh-day Sabbath, and it is described as a sacred convocation. (Compare with Leviticus 23:36.)
Using the Scriptural criteria alone, this Feast of Unleavened Bread is both “fixed” to the 15th day count from New Moon day and “fixed” to the seventh-day of the week. As a result it would be impossible to locate this sacred appointed feast by using a Gregorian calendar with weeks that cycle without end. Like oil and water, the Gregorian calendar and Scriptural time-keeping do not mix. So which is easier to do— declare the Roman Gregorian calendar in error, or dismiss the three part orchestration of the Scriptural astro-luni-solar timepiece, of which the feasts and true Sabbaths belong? It is these sacred appointed feasts of Yahuah that stand as a perpetual witness to the Creator’s unchanging celestial time system.
Feast of First Fruits (Raysheeth)— Annual Rehearsal of the Prophetic Lamb to be Resurrected – Leviticus 23:9-15
This feast is often referred to as Wave Sheaf and occupies the 16th day of Abib, as counted from the New Moon day, which is also permanently “fixed” to the first day of the week. This day follows the seventh-day Sabbath of the 15th today, just as it did at the time of Moses and during the three days of the crucifixion and resurrection of Yahusha. This is a “nail in a sure place.” Leviticus 23:9-15, Matthew 28:1-8
He shall wave the sheaf before Yahuah, to be accepted on your behalf; on the day after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it. And you shall offer on that day, when you wave the sheaf, a male lamb of the first year, without blemish, as a burnt offering to Yahuah. Leviticus 23:11-13
Easter, “Feast of the Resurrection” is Rome’s counterfeit Feast Day for this most important Resurrection day of our Messiah and Savior. Many are not aware of Rome’s proactive system of “fixing” Easter to the first Sunday after the “full moon.” Therefore, Easter is likewise appointed by Rome according to the lunar phases. They do this to insure that their artificial spring feast day will never fall on Scripture’s true and appointed astro-luni-solar Passover and Feast of First Fruits. Refer to article, “Why Must Rome Consistently Fix “Easter” to the Moon?
Feast of Weeks/Pentecost (Shabuoth) —Annual Rehearsal of the Prophetic Messiah to be Ordained the Melchizedek Kohen (Priest) in the temple above – Leviticus 23:16-22
In the Tanakh (OT), Pentecost is consistently referred to as Feast of Weeks or more correctly, Feast of Sabbaths. Pentecost is the term used only in the New Testament.
First and foremost, the true calendar must be established as the foundation upon which to locate this Feast of Sabbaths correctly. Neither the Julian nor the Gregorian calendars existed at the time the Feast of Sabbaths were instituted by Yahuah. Also, it is utterly impossible to count to the Feast of Sabbaths by using any other calendar than the Scriptural mandated astro-luni-solar calendar, as it is the only one that fits all the criteria of the Sanctuary model.
15 And you shall keep count from the day after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought as the Aleph and Tav covenant sign, the wave sheaf, seven Sabbaths shall be kept whole and complete. 16 Even “from” the day after the Sabbath of the seventh, you shall count out fifty [additional] days, and you shall present the NEW MOON OFFERING unto Yahuah . . . 21 And you shall proclaim and keep it according to the “waxed mighty” on the selfsame day that the sacred and set-apart assembly occurs; for as all work, service and business employment shall NOT be done by you as a commandment of eternal perpetuity in all of your assemblies, and for all of your habitations. Leviticus 23:15-16, 21 The Creator’s Calendar New Restored Text
Step by step details:
- In Verse 15 Begin counting on the 16th day from New Moon of the first lunar month. The 16th day is always the first day of the week, because it always follows a seventh-day Sabbath on the 15th.
- Count seven weeks of Sabbaths is a total of 49 days ending consistently on the seventh-day Sabbath, which is the 8th day of the Third Month.
- Only count Sabbaths complete, which is six work days and one Sabbath. Never count New Moon Days or Translation days, as these are not Sabbaths or six work days in a row.
- Verse 16 says, “Even from the day after the Sabbath of the seventh, you shall count out fifty [additional] days, and you shall present the New Moon offering unto Yahuah. Thus, we must add 50 days or (seven more weeks plus one day) to the count, making it 99 days or (essentially 14 Sabbath’s complete), which was designed to occur consistently on the full New Moon day of the Fifth Month.
- Also in verse 16 we find that the reference to a “new” (chadash חדש #2319) was intended to mean New Moon offering (chodesh חדש #2320). Proof that the term was never intended to be the word “new” comes from the fact that this Hebrew word has a suffix (ה) attached that defines it as singular. The word “new” (chadash #2319) is never singular or plural. However the New Moon (chodesh חדש #2320) can be either singular or plural and does require a suffix (ה) for instruction.
- The words meat/grain offering were inserted by the translators and does not exist in the original Hebrew. This is the nail in a sure place that establishes that the count is not a mere 50 days after all, but rather one that spans the longer period of time allowing it to occur at the time of the New Moon day of the Fifth Month.
- Verse 21 continues with the details of this Count of Shabuoth (count of Sabbaths) clarifying that the “waxed mighty” is to be proclaimed on the selfsame day as this sacred New Moon assembly, in which we are to bring a New Moon offering, as stated in verse 16. This verse profoundly identifies the full moon as the true New Moon, which has all this time been hidden under the rubble of translation errors.
- Also according to verse 21, this is a commandment of eternal perpetuity in all your assemblies and habitations. So it is that this feast and no doubt all the others was designed to continue as long as sin endured among the generations of earth. Yet, it is even possible that after the Messiah’s second coming it will be kept perpetually into the millennial Kingdom to come and the earth made new as ruled by Yahusha our Messiah and King of Kings.
Yahuah uses these eight points to punctuate that even in this count to Feast of Shabuoth, His ordained lunar week and sacred Sabbath is reckoned by the very same full New Moon as all the yearly appointed festivals. This is demonstrated and clarified by this count being fixed simultaneously to both the date of the lunar month, counting from the First New Moon day of the year to the Fifth New Moon day, as well as fixed within the Sabbaths complete, each and every year.
How can it be declared that the Sabbaths have nothing whatever to do with the feasts, when they are the very ordained units of time whereby we must count to this sacred and set-apart feast?

The Feast of Trumpets is a one day feast occurring on the full New Moon day of the Seventh Month in the fall of the Scriptural Hebrew year. The name of the feast itself identifies it as announcing or trumpeting an upcoming important event. In this case as in the typical yearly sanctuary service the trumpets warned of the coming final ”Judgment Day,” as marked by the Feast Day of Atonement, which follows ten days later.
The Eternal Father may utilize to His honor a month by month parade of cataclysmic New Moon events as a sign marker to gather all His obedient followers under the same shamayim umbrella, that all may be in perfect harmony and in one accord with His true New Moon day.
All who willfully do no not wake up, and look to the starry shamayim will not recognize that all the last day events are synchronized according to Scripture’s celestial time. Only too, late will they discover, the Ruach of truth had been calling them to humbly surrender.
Feast Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur)— Annual Rehearsal of the Prophetic Judgment Day and Close of Probation – Leviticus 23:27-32
The Day of Atonement falls on the 10th day of the Seventh Month (not a pagan named day), counting from the New Moon. Like all the appointed Feast days of Yahuah, it is fixed not only on the specific date of the month counting from the New Moon, but is also fixed on its specific date of the week. This is because five days later is the Feast of Tabernacles which commences every year on the seventh-day Sabbath, the 15th of the Seventh Month. Therefore, it will always fall on the 2nd day of the second week, counting from the New Moon.
Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot)— Annual Rehearsal of the Prophetic Second Coming of the Messiah – Leviticus 23:33-36
This Feast commenced on the 15th day of the Seventh Month, counting from the New Moon, and ends on the 21st day. Because the first day of this Feast begins on a seventh-day Sabbath, it is also a High Sabbath. By clarifying that the day following the seven day feast (known as the eighth day) was a seventh-day Sabbath, Yahuah punctuated that His ordained week and seventh-day Sabbath are reckoned by His sacred celestial calendar system. As a result the sacred seventh-day Sabbath is lunar, as it is defined by the full New Moon. This is demonstrated and clarified by this seven-day feast being “fixed” simultaneously to both the date of the lunar month, as well as to the specific days of the week, each and every year. This Feast of Tabernacles cannot be located correctly on any other form of calendar other than the calendar of Divine origin. It is here demonstrated that the unbroken continuous weekly cycles were not authored by the Creator, as they can never be in harmony with the time-centric criteria given by the Eternal Father.
These seven days are to be celebrated in rejoicing before Yahuah. This particular feast commemorates the seven days as symbolic for the seven thousand years, which stretch from creation to the end of the thousand years in the New Jerusalem. Seven thousand years is the length of time that is designated by Yahuah as the period of total restoration of His people. Not until the end of the thousand years in the New Jerusalem, will every tear be wiped away, and mankind fully restored in the earth made new. “With Yahuah one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” 2 Peter 3:8
The most paramount significance of the Feast of Tabernacles is that which is prophesied in literal time. Simply, all the spring feasts were fulfilled in literal time at Yahusha, our Messiah’s first coming, so too must the fall feasts be fulfilled in literal time, a day for a day, at His second coming.
This means that Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and the seven-day Feast of Tabernacles, are time-centric details leading up to and including The Messiah’s second coming. Could it be that the 15th day of the seventh month, the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles, is actually the exact day of the year of the Second Coming of the Messiah in the clouds?
The Eighth Day— Annual Rehearsal of the Prophetic Welcome into the Eternal City at the Commencement of the Thousand Years – Leviticus 23:36
This eighth day is located on the day following the seven-day Feast of Tabernacles, which would place it on the 22nd day of the Seventh Month, counting from the Full New Moon day. This eighth-day that follows the Feast falls on the seventh-day Sabbath each and every year. It is only the eighth-day, because it is referred to as following the seven-day Feast of Tabernacles.
Also on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered in the fruit of the land, you shall keep the feast of Yahuah for seven days; on the first day there shall be a Sabbath rest, and on the eighth day a Sabbath rest. Leviticus 23:39
“You shall keep the feast of Yahuah for seven days,” then there is an immediate mention of an eighth day, stating it to be a Sabbath rest. Notice at the end of verse 39 it states, “. . . on the first day there shall be a Sabbath-rest, and on the eighth-day a Sabbath-rest.” There is no getting around the point that is made here, as it is “a nail in a sure place.” Moses under divine guidance is clarifying that the first day of the seven day Feast of Tabernacles, as well as the day following it, are both seventh-day Sabbaths. By necessity, and to remain in harmony with the written word, the 15th and 22nd of the Seventh Month, will continue to be seventh-day Sabbaths each and every year. It is utterly impossible for the eighth-day to consistently fall on these dates and additionally have them be seventh-day Sabbaths for each year when using a Roman Gregorian calendar with its weeks that cycle without end.
Prophetically, the eighth day appears to mark the commencement of the one thousand year Sabbath. It also appears to mark the final great day when Yahusha, Himself opens the gates of the Eternal City and welcomes His redeemed to enter, saying, “well done, good and obedient servant . . . enter into the joy of your master.” Matthew 25:21
It is in these verses that the Eternal Father profoundly clarifies the foundational connection and unbreakable bond between the days of the week and the days of the month. This shows the weeks were fixed to the count from the full New Moon, every month. This is the same as if He had literally written it in stone, as this Feast of Tabernacles was to commence on these same dates, on seventh-day Sabbath, and be followed each and every year by the eighth-day, also a Sabbath each year. As a sacred witness all the Feast Days of the Eternal Father, together testify to His celestial clock/calendar in the shamayim, for astro-lunar-solar years, months and weeks, and calendar dates. All time upon earth was patterned after the original that circles Yahuah’s Eternal Seat of Power. The truth about the sacred feast days renders “unbroken continuous weekly cycles,” a fraud of mammoth proportions.
(Leviticus 23:1-39; Numbers 28:1-31; Numbers 29:40.)

32. Sacred Name of the Father – יהוה
Shockingly, the calendar and all its sacred appointed worship days were not the only thing changed, over the years. The true names of the Almighty Father, Yahuah, was changed to trite terms such as “Lord” and “God,” which allude to Baal worship.
Over 100 times from Genesis to Revelation in the original Hebrew text, Scripture defines that the obedient followers are to “call upon the name of Yahuah.” We are never to call our Eternal Father by artificial names of Lord or God.
The emphasis from His sacred Word is that His righteous followers are to proclaim the true sacred name of YAHUAH, the Most High, which is spelled from right to left in Hebrew as יהוה. When transliterated into English it is then read from left to right as YHUH, pronounced as Yah-oo-ah, and spelled Yahuah.
Some prefer to pronounce His sacred name as Yahweh, Yehovah or Yahuwah, which is far an away better than Lord God. In any case, God and Lord were applied much later by the “lying pen of Scribes” (Jeremiah 8:8-9), for the purpose of replacing the true name. Many declare this is a simple case of semantics. But is it? Read on.
33. Sacred Name of the Son –יהושׁע
The Messiah’s Hebrew name was also changed from Yahusha, to Jesus Christ, which specifically means “Hail Zeus-Krishna.” The reference to Christ was never a Greek equivalent of the Hebrew word Messiah, but it specifically comes from the name of a pagan god Christna or Krishna.
If you think this is preposterous and not the actual truth for the mere reason you were not taught this, think again. This is called deception! If your church teaches you to pray to Jesus Christ and supports Christmas and/or Easter, and frowns on the sacred appointed feast days of Scripture, then you are in a false religious organization, bent on keeping you dumb and lacking in the knowledge of the truth.
“Jesus” is supposed to be the Anglicized equivalent of the Greek “Iesous,” but really, if it is, it is troubling to say the least. The English name “Jesus” stems etymologically from “Jupiter-Zeus” the chief god of the ancient Greek Olympus – the coded occult appellation evolving from “J-Zeus”. . . “J-sus”. . . “Je-sus,” to “Jesus”. . . Some authorities, who have spent their entire lives studying the origins of names believe that “Jesus” actually means— “Hail Zeus!” For Iesous in Greek is “Hail Zeus.” That is, “Ie” translates as “Hail” and “sous” or “sus” is Zeus. The Jesus of modern Christendom is nothing more than the Egyptian form of Jupiter-Zeus, Serapis. . . Dictionary of Christian Lore and Legend, J.C.J. Melford, 1983, p. 126.
Constantine’s intention at Nicea was to create an entirely new god for his empire who would unite all religious factions under one deity. Presbyters were asked to debate and decide who their god would be. Delegates argued among themselves, expressing personal motive for inclusion of particular writings that promoted the finer traits of their own special deity. Throughout the meeting, howling factions were immersed in heated debates, and the names of 53 gods were tabled for discussion. “As of yet, no god had been selected by the council, and so they balloted in order to determine that matter. . . For one year and five months the balloting lasted. . .” God’s Book of Eskra, Prof. S.L. MacGuire’s translation, Salisbury, 1922, chapter xlviii, paragraphs 36, 41.
At the end of that time, Constantine returned to the gathering to discover that the presbyters had not agreed on a new deity, but had balloted down to a short list of five prospects: Caesar, Crishna [Krishna], Mithra, Horus, and Zeus. Historia Ecclesiastica, Eusebius, c. 325. (K. Lake, Loeb Classical Library 1 (1926), 2 (1932), with English translation (vol. 2 translated by J. E. L. Oulton).
Constantine was the ruling spirit at Nicaea and he ultimately decided upon a new god for them. To involve British factions, he ruled that the name of the Druid god, “Hesus,” be joined with the Eastern Savior-god, Krishna (Krishna is Sanskrit for Christ), and thus “Hesus Krishna” [Jesus Christ] would be the official name of the New Roman god. A vote was taken and it was with a majority show of hands (161 votes to 157) that both divinities become one god. Following long-standing heathen custom, Constantine used the official gathering and the Roman apotheosis decree to legally defy two deities as one, and did so by democratic consent. A new god was proclaimed and “officially” ratified by Constantine. Acta Concilii Nicaeni, 1618.
This was the birth of what is known today as CHRISTIANITY. Thus, Constantine presented a man-made god to be worshiped the world over as it was covertly applied to the very pages of Scripture in place of the Messiah’s true name. Who said Scripture remains pure and undefiled? What else has been changed?
Simply, no one was a Christian prior to A.D. 325. All the churches that claim to be Christian (Krishna) today, are merely daughters of the Roman stylized system of false worship, with their own spin or variation on doctrinal beliefs. Prior to this, all of the Messiah’s obedient followers referred to themselves as Natsarim (Nazarenes) or were called the Quartodecimens (Fourteeners) who kept Passover on the 14th day from the full New Moon. All Christian (Hail Zeus-Christna) churches have accepted the pagan holidays as sacred feast day replacements, wholly supplanting all of the Eternal’s true and prophetic qodesh Feast Days and Sabbaths as beaconed by the full New Moon. Each of these value being in harmony with their false churches more than with the worship rhythms of their Creator. One by one, and for their own particular reasons, each Christianized church tenaciously clings with claw-like talons to their beloved, yet, fabricated system of beliefs.
All Christian churches utilize the falsified terms for Yahuah, the Father as “Lord God,” and have replaced Yahusha, the Messiah, with “Jesus Christ” (Hail Zeus-Christna). As a result, both the rhythm of worship and who is worshipped no longer resemble TRUTH as it is in Scripture. For they have bartered and traded in the markets of men the true for the false, in order to worship and serve a counterfeit god of their choosing, the prince of darkness.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for me. Because you have forgotten the law of your Alahim, I also will forget your children. Hosea 4:6
Yahusha, the Messiah’s sacred name was never spelled with a “J,” or pronounced as Jehovah, because there is no “J” or its phonetic sound in the Hebrew tongue. Rather, this was an invention as recently as 400 years ago. The Jehovah’s Witnesses would do well to change their name, as it announces to the world the first of their many false teachings.
As mentioned earlier, the staff at the Creator’s Calendar seeks to be in harmony with the teachings of the sacred Scriptures alone. These statements of belief are subject to revision as we are led by the Ruach of the Eternal Father, Yahuah and His Son, Yahusha into all truth.
May you be abundantly blessed as you seek the FATHER OF LIGHTS (James 1:17).
