Is your approach to the calendar something that sets you free, or does it shackle you to lunar or solar philosophies? In coming out of the synchronistic and traditional methods of keeping time, one must approach the calendar in a manner that demonstrates love for יהוה/Yahuwah and others, not the love of wisdom.

Unshackling Ourselves to a Straight Forward Festival Calendar

The Calendar

  • Pre Islamic origins of sli-ver moon gazing.
  • The difference between Chodesh/month and Yarachah/moon
  • King Hezekiah and the slowing of the earth’s orbit causing a longer solar year the shadow to go backwards.
  • Calculating the turning of the year using the scriptural ‘Tekufah’ Ex. 34.22
  • The solar calendar and the counting of days, ultimately freeing you up from philosophy so you can be joyful in the Holy Spirit as you come together in your communities for the Shabbat and Feasts of יהוה!

Lunar Shabbat: 

The seven day weekly cycle was instituted before the creation of the Moon so how then can the Moon govern the weekly cycle if it was not yet created or illuminated four days after the week began?

Leviticus 23 i verse 4 follows the listing of Shabbat and then preempts the listing of the other moedim which are to be “proclaimed”.

Shabbat is NOT a moed that is “proclaimed” according to the Moon. It’s a fixed 7-day cycle given as the ‘Ot’ ‘sign’ – or ‘mark’ on all believers throughout all generations by יהוה.

The Moon and the calendar: 

All biblical years must have 360 days, the question arises is how to we deal with the extra 4-5 days since the days of King Hezekiah.

We can’t be adding a13th month like the rabbis or all calendars will be off and the Feasts will be off every third year.

The 11 day difference between the lunar and solar years must be reconciled yearly so the Feasts and YHWH’s fixed times to always start in the first month and not 30 days late every 3 years, or 7 times in 19 years like the rabbinical calendar.

The Feasts of יהוה must be fixed by the 12 stations-windows of the sun and stars. The moon has been sick [not in sync] several times through the centuries, including the days of Enoch.

The moon used to be in sync with the sun prior to the days of King Hezekiah and calculations just won’t work with required precision today.

Men try and monk with it every three years, but still,  יהוה hasn’t restored it to match the earth’s solar year.

Why is the moon sick:

Why is the moon sick and not the sun if YHWH moved the sun, causing the shadow to move in King Hezekiah’s day [Isaiah Ch. 38 1-9]?

The sun has 6 portals of 30 days each, which the sun then passes through twice a year.

Rising in 6 in the east and setting in the same 6 in the west. Each portal-month is a PERFECT 30 days + we add the 4 season days as the year draws to a close before the Vernal Equinox.

The sun gives us 12 perfect months or Chodashim-a transit through 12 [6 + 6] portals, the sun is healthy.

YHWH slowed the earth’s orbit to cause a longer solar year, as well as to cause the shadow to go backwards.

Moon out of sync by 11 days a year;  or 33 days every 3 years.

All that being said; the earth actually assists the moon in its sickbed, because without the earth’s gravitational rescue; the moons actual lunation is 27 days, or 27 day months;

Psalm 89:37: 

His zera shall endure le-olam-va-ed, and his kesay as the sun before Me. 37 It shall be established le-olam-va-ed as the moon, and as a faithful witness in the shamayim. Selah. 

The moon is a faithful witness to the handiwork of the Creator, giving-witness He’s the Grand Designer; that doesn’t change; but that doesn’t mean the moon is a reliable time witness for establishing times and seasons.

2 Kings 20:9 And Yeshayahu said, This ot shall you have of vuvh, that vuvh will do the thing that He has spoken: shall the shadow go forth-forward ten degrees, or go back ten degrees? 10 And Hizqiyahu answered, It would be easy for the shadow to go down-forward ten degrees: no, but let the shadow return backward ten degrees. 11 And Yeshayahu the navi cried to vuvh: and He brought the shadow ten degrees backward, by which it had gone down in the dial of Achaz.  

Isaiah 38:7 And this shall be an ot to you from vuvh, that vuvh will do this thing that He has spoken; 8 See, I will bring again the shadow of the degrees, which is gone down on the sundial of Achaz, ten degrees backward. So the sun returned ten degrees on the dial, by the same degrees that it had gone dow

2 Chronicles 32:24 In those days Hizqiyahu was sick, near to death, and made tefillah to vuvh and He spoke to him, and He gave him an ot. (the shadow moving backwards)

The Biblical calendar only allows for 12 months of 30 days each or 360 days. Nowhere in Scripture is an allowance made for an added 13th month.

New Months are to be celebrated on New Month Day, as the sun passes 30 degrees or 30 days in the heavens from point A to point B.

Chodesh/Yarayach: 

In the Tanach almost all references to month use the Hebrew word ‘Chodesh’, a set of 30 days of time, not the word ‘Yarayach’ or literally “The Moon.

‘Yarayach’ is only used 26 times, all referring to the actual moon itself.

The Hebrew word ‘Chodesh’ is used over 256 times in the Tanach and always refers to a MONTH, solar month, not a moon of any type.

Moon is only used 26 times, not to refer to a time period, but the definite article.

The Hebrew word for New Moon, and Crescent Moon (Saharon Yare’akh) are NOT the same!

The Crescent is NOT the New Moon, and the evidence of Crescent-Moon “worship” in the scriptures and history is very disturbing, It’s pre Islamic, its infiltrated the Hebrew Roots from the mystery religions of Babylon just like Hanukah and Purim have!

Psalm 104:19 

There are different kinds of appointed times and only the context can determine which time it appoints.

When Psalm 104:19 is read in context with verses 21 and 22 it speaks of the Moed of the night or darkness, as beasts in the forest look for prey in the Moadim, Seasons of night-darkness.

Psalm 104:19 He created the moon for moadim: the sun knows its going down.

20 You make darkness, and it is night: in it all the beasts of the forest do creep.

21 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their food from El. 22 The sun rises, they gather themselves together, and lie down in their dens. 23 Man goes forth to his work and to his labor until the evening. 24 O vuvh, how manifold are Your works! In chochmah have You made them all: the earth is full of Your riches.

Psalm 104:21, is a continuation of that theme and then it shifts to verse 22 where the moadeem-appointed times of light are regulated by the sun. This isn’t a reference to the moon itself regulating annual weekly Shabbats or annual feasts.

History of the lunar and solar year:

Enoch to Noach 364 day solar year and probably 364 day lunar year as well.

Noach to King Hezekiah; 360 days (Genesis 7:11-8:4).

360 day synchronized solar and lunar calendars are a sign of judgment, as they return in the Great Tribulation.

King Hezekiah to the Great Tribulation; solar year 365 days, lunar year 354 days, the moon is sick and won’t align the Feast and Festivals of יהוה in this age.

The Great Tribulation, the last 3 1/2 years of this age; The moon will be healed by being

synchronized with the sun, both declaring 360 day years (judgment), so both or either can be used for years, days, weekly Shabbats, and annual feasts. (Revelation 11:1-2, Revelation 12:6).

In the Millennial Kingdom both the solar and lunar year will have 364 or 365:

In eternity Revelation chapter 21 and chapter 22 when the sun and moon are not needed; because when Messiah our Malki-Tzedik stands up to lead us at the fixed times, we’ll stand and follow Him and his light.

Why Babylon? Because the pre Islamic Babylonian moon-deity Sin was worshipped there, whose symbol is the crescent moon.

The scriptural record of the crescent moon and those associated with it are negative!

(Genesis 35:4) “Before Yaakov went to Bethel to present himself before Yahweh he made all  his people to hand over to him their “strange elohim” and ear-rings. (i.e.,

Crescent-shaped amulets), and he hid them under the oak which was in Schechem.”

It was worn by women (Isaiah 3:18), and by kings (Judges 8:21/26), and tied to the necks of camels (Judges 8:21) to protect them from the Evil Eye.

Moshe, the Sphinx, the Pyramids, the Equinox and the dawn day start marker! 

Acts 7:22 And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds.

The Sphinx is an equinoctial marker.  The Sphinx faces East at the exact location where the Sun rises on the day of the vernal equinox (21 March). As the sun rises it illuminates its face.

The Great Pyramid is a giant sundial, with it’s shadow to the north and its reflected sunlight to the south. This accurately marks both the solstices and equinoxes. Two of its faces are orientated due east and west – the exact points of the rising and setting sun only on the spring and autumnominal equinox.

Equinox or Equilux:

equinox is not equal day and night, that’s equilux. The equinox is a time when the center of sun can be observed directly above the earths equator. It’s the equinox that is the scriptural sign for the beginning of the year.

Equinox in scripture is Tekufah. Tekufah is an exact yearly event. The equilux  is not exact because it can last for longer periods of time on either side of the equinox.

The Tekufah:

The Tekufah is found in Exodus 34.22 (the turn of the year), 1 Samuel 1:20 (Hannah/Elkenah>Samuel prophecy) Elkenah was attending the Feast of Passover, Psalm 19:6 (the mazzoreth and the constellations), 2 Chronicles 24:23 (the year end).

Deuteronomy 16:1The great Et-Ot, or sign of the year.

This great sign is for the entire year and all weekly and annual shabbats and it’s called the ‘turn of the year’ or the Tekufah Ha Shanna’, Rosh Ha Shanna.

Deuteronomy 16:1 Shomer the month of Aviv-Ot (the great sign/Tekufah turn of the year

in order to perform the Peach to YHWH your Elohim, for in the month (not moon) of the great Aviv-Ot, sign, your Elohim brought you out of Egypt-Mitzrayim by night. 

Two seasons – biblically: summer and winter: 

Genesis 8:22 While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.

Beware  of the Exodus 9:31 Eisegesis

Exodus 9:31 Now the flax and the barley were struck (by hail – the 7th plague), for the barley was in the head (Aviv) and the flax was in the bud. 

Tekufah – turn of the year – draw out – an Exegesis of the text!

2 Samuel 11:1 teshuwbah תשובה (tav-sheen-vav-bet-heh) a completion of a year.

1 Kings 20:22 The King of Syria would invade at the ‘turn of the year’ and steal the harvest.

1 Chronicle 20:1 In the time of King David, Joab would take out a raiding party after the ‘equinox’, ‘turn of the year’ and plunder the harvest!

Identifying the Equinox: 

  • The ecliptic represents the suns apparent yearly path in from of the constellations of the Mazzaroth.
  • The celestial equator is a circle drawn around the sky above the earth’s equator.
  • The eliptic and celestial equator intersect at the spring equinox and autumnal equinox points.

Calendar Guidelines: 

  • YHWH’s calendar is verifiable in the Flood narrative, and recorded by Moshe in 2550 years later still with 30 days months and 12 months in a year.
  • When the yearly circuit increased, you simply add the extra days to the end of the 12 months until the Tekufah resets the year again! No longer are we beholden to men’s calendaration!
  • The Feasts of יהוה all the way through into the 7th month remain unhampered with by men’s calculations and hands. No inter-calculated days, no nonsense.
  • Just as Noach had 5 months all with 30 days, so YHWH’s calendar will have 30 days in a month.
  • The equinox is the last day of the year – next dawning of the day is day one, month one of the new year.

Main adjustments: 

  • No 31 days months – the added 5 1/4  days since King Hezekiah are counted at the end of the year before the equinox arrives, never interfering with YHWH’s Feasts and festivals.
  • We don’t begin our Sabbath in alignment with Jerusalem; so I’m not up for beginning my year in alignment with Jerusalem anymore – local time from know on!
  • The day begins at dawn – not sunrise, light breaking forth is the beginning of time event, not the cresting of the sun over the horizon.

The Awakening of Israel – Part 1

Do you know the Bible teaches that there is only one church? By the Messiah’s own words, He came only for the lost sheep of the House of Israel. Only through Him can we attach back to the promises of blessing and inheritance that were given to Abraham. This is the thrust of the whole of Scripture!

Temple Man – Part 1

Are you biblically healthy? While there are more than eighty different Hebrew terms for body parts, there is no word for the body as a whole as we think of it today. As we study what it truly means to be Temples of the Living Elohim, we can look to the model of the earthly temple to understand the intricacies of the three-fold man, perfect in health and healing.

The Feast of Unleavened Bread – Topical Teaching

What is leaven? As we approach Chag Ha’Matzot/Feast of Unleavened Bread, we are called to examine our house and remove the leaven. If our focus is more on cleaning baking products out of our cupboards than examining our lives and cleaning out the sin, we miss the gravitas of the feast. We need to remove the leaven of the old man and replace it with the leaven of Yahusha, The Bread of Life.

Temple Man – Part 2

Are you biblically healthy? While there are more than eighty different Hebrew terms for body parts, there is no word for the body as a whole as we think of it today. As we study what it truly means to be Temples of the Living Elohim, we can look to the model of the earthly temple to understand the intricacies of the three-fold man, perfect in health and healing.

The Awakening of Israel – Part 2

Do you know the Bible teaches that there is only one church? By the Messiah’s own words, He came only for the lost sheep of the House of Israel. Only through Him can we attach back to the promises of blessing and inheritance that were given to Abraham. This is the thrust of the whole of Scripture!

Lazarus Comes Forth

Who is Lazarus? In Chapter 11 of his gospel, John records the raising of Lazarus. While many know this to be a tale of Yahusha’s victory over the grave in our lives, most miss the deeper meaning. As we grow in our understanding of the true identity, we find that the story of Lazarus is not simply a story of personal resurrection, but the restoration of the House of Israel.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Intro

Romiyah/Romans is the most influential letter ever written and have impacted theology, politics, civil law, and church doctrine in the West. Classical approaches to this epistle have started Reformations and used to support misogyny. What if our approach to Shaul/Paul’s letter has been wrong? Join our study, as we leave behind traditional interpretations, in favor of the truth of the original language and the context of the whole of Scripture!

Unshackling Ourselves to a Straight Forward Festival Calendar

Unlocking Galatians Hebraically – Intro

Are you walking in freedom? In the Institutionalized Church, Galutyah/Galatians is used to justify a Christian’s severance from the law of Moshe/Moses. Is this truly the intent of the epistle, divided from the rest of Scripture? Some have found the text to be so problematic that they reject Shaul/Paul altogether. Join us, as we study Galutyah/Galatians!

Migration-Judah

The Migration of Judah

Who are the real Jews today and where can we find them? Why does American black history exist based solely on the past 400 years beginning in the 17th Century with the trans-Atlantic slave trade? So it is with modern-day black liberal democrats – house slaves!
