Month 3
At The Mountain



Mt. Sinai is the blackened peak in the background.

Exodus 19:1-8

In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt , the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai. 2 For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come to the desert of Sinai , and had pitched in the wilderness; and there Israel camped before the mount.

3 And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel; 4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.

5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel . 7 And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which the LORD commanded him. 8 And all the people answered together, and said, All that the LORD hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto the LORD. KJV

The Evidence for Three Months in a Row

The intended meaning of Exodus 19:1, 2 is more clearly stated in the New International Bible Version:

In the third month after the Israelites left Egypt --on the very day--they came to the Desert of Sinai . After they set out from Rephidim, they entered the Desert of Sinai , and Israel camped there in the desert in front of the mountain. Exodus 19:1, 2

Evidently, it was significant to Yahuwah to have Moses record this event as being the exact same day on the third month since they had left Egypt . Since it was important to Yahuwah, it was for a purpose and likely did not happen by chance, but rather was an ordained and appointed arrival at Mt. Sinai .

The Israelites never broke camp heading for parts unknown under their own leadership. Rather the Lord Yahuwah used the pillar of cloud by day and fire by night to lead them. Sometimes they traveled by day and sometimes by night, but always led by Yahuwah according to His timing. Because it is stated to be the exact same day, then by default it must be the date of the 15th. The date of the 15th would include both daylight and night counting from the New Moon day. If it can be established which day of the week the 15th fell on, then it is possible to connect all the other dates of that month with the proper days of the week.

Unfortunately, there is no statement in the entire book of Exodus that states upon which day of the week the 15th falls. It should not be assumed that this third month in a row is identical to the preceding two months simply on the basis that it is mentioned. To be conclusive, the third month, like the two before it, must be established entirely on its own inherent attributes as given in the Scriptural narrative.



In Yahuwah's providence, He provided the evidence and key necessary to unlock this third month in a row, in the book of Leviticus. Leviticus 23:15-22 declares an annual feast day in the 3rd month of Sivan, known as the Feast of Pentecost. It is this timely and unique puzzle piece that sheds light on which day of the week the 15th falls. While the details of Pentecost had not yet been given to the people at the time of their arrival at Mt. Sinai , they were given shortly afterward, following the giving of the Ten Commandments.


There has been much discussion on how to count to Pentecost. First, the correct calendar must be established upon which to calculate it. It cannot be assumed that the modern Gregorian calendar is the one to use, because it did not exist at that time. Establishing the correct calendar from the evidence, in the first two months in a row, will make all the difference in the outcome. Second, a clue is found in the name of the feast itself. Pentecost means “fifty" which stood for “fifty days".

From the day after the Sabbath, the day you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, count off seven full weeks. Count off fifty days up to the day after the seventh Sabbath and then present an offering of new grain to the LORD.
Leviticus 23:15-17 NIV

Yahuwah was very specific as He clarified to only count seven “Sabbaths complete". This literally includes 7 sets of “full weeks", which is 7x7=49 days. Full weeks consist of six work days followed by their respective seventh-day Sabbath. Next a qualifying statement is given that states that the total is 50 days, which is an extension of the 49 days, by adding one day after the seventh Sabbath. It was not Yahuwah's intention that every single day of the month was to be counted. If simply counting 50 days was all that was necessary, no other specific

details would have been necessary. Thirdly, Pentecost was also called “Feast of Weeks" by the Jews because of the very nature of only counting full complete weeks.

There are some who believe the theory that states: first we are to count seven full weeks then add to it 50 days, which would total 99 days. However, if this was Yahuwah's intent then it could not have been called Feast of Weeks, because 99 does not divide by 7 equally, thus it would not be a perfect count of full weeks. If it were a count of 99 days then it could not be called Pentecost. In the OT this feast is always referred to as Feast of Weeks, and in the NT it is always referred to as Pentecost. In neither OT nor NT is it ever referred to as both Feast of Weeks and Pentecost, which would be necessary if it were truly referring to 99 days. Also, no where does it say to add these two numeric values together, but rather the 50 days is simply a clarification of 49+1=50. This theory is simply not scriptural in any translated rendering nor in a Hebrew word study of Leviticus 23:15, 16.

Sabbaths Complete:
Six work days plus one day Sabbath equals one Sabbath complete. This was the template that Yahuwah ordained at Creation. These will never include New Moon days or translation days, because they are not the days specified in the equation.

0 (New Moon days are not to be counted)
0 (Translation days, the 30th day of the month, are not to be counted)
6 work days
+ 1 7th day Sabbath
= 7 (6 work days + 1 Sabbath) = 1 Sabbath Complete (perfect)

Count to Pentecost:
Begin counting on the 16th day of the first month of Abib, which is the day after the Sabbath. Count seven “Sabbaths complete", and then add a day, because the text says to “count off fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath". All of Yahuwah's feasts consistently fall on the same date when calculated upon His calendar because it is a fixed calendar and the feast days are also fixed. This is done by divine design to insure that each new month does not begin with an arbitrary day following the month before, but always begins with the sighting of the crescent New Moon.

And you shall proclaim on the same day that it is a holy convocation to you. You shall do no customary work on it. It shall be a statute forever in all your dwellings throughout your generations. Leviticus 23:21 KJV



Using this illustration above of the first three months in a row, begin counting from Abib 16 which is always the day of the Wave Sheaf Offering. Count for seven Sabbaths complete and then add one day.

Pentecost falls on Sivan 9 each and every year. Because the Creator's calendar is fixed to the phases of the moon, the 9th day of Sivan will always be on the first day of the week, thus making the 15th day of the same month a seventh-day Sabbath. For the third month in a row the Scriptures have established the structure of the Creator's calendar. Once again, it begins with a New Moon day and is followed by four successive seven day cycles with the seventh-day Sabbaths rendered on the 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th of each and every month since creation. Each new month is refreshed with the first visible appearance of the crescent New Moon, which beacons a new line up of four successive weeks. As stated previously, it is impossible to locate the true seventh-day Sabbaths without first the signal of the crescent New Moon.

According to the weight of evidence as given here by these “three identical months in a row", unbroken chains of successive weeks do not exist in the Scriptural calendar as given by Yahuwah at creation. This belief that a continuous and unbroken chain of weeks began at creation, and has continued until now on the modern Roman calendar, is based wholly on assumption. (See Continuous Weekly Cycle Proven False!) The evidence from Scripture tells a far different story. These “three months in a row" are identical by divine design and demonstrate that unbroken successive weeks do not exist nor ever have existed on the Creator's luni-solar calendar.

The reason that this can be established as the very calendar since the time of creation is in the fact that Yahuwah was restoring to the Israelites what had been lost. What had been lost was two-fold; the Law and the time keeping system of creation. Both of these are light from heaven that dispels the darkness of error. These truths brought to the hearts and minds of the Israelites gave them courage to be truly free from the pagan ties of Egypt that would eagerly beset them. These same truths brought to the hearts and minds of people today give them strength and courage to break the ties to the many voices of symbolic Egypt and Babylon that would entrap them as well. Yahuwah's remnant will faithfully worship Him on His ordained and appointed calendar, and observe His Holy Feast days, His New Moon days and His true luni-solar seventh-day Sabbaths here on earth and then throughout eternity.
Month #3 Conclusion

By way of the count to Pentecost, the 15th day of Sivan has been established as a seventh-day Sabbath. With this in mind a question one might ask is, did the Lord Yahuwah cause His people to break the Sabbath by traveling and pitching tents, during the very time He was sending them manna from heaven each morning except Sabbath? Traveling on the Sabbath as well as setting up camp would certainly have been more work than gathering manna or preparing food, which the Lord Yahuwah strictly forbade. So there appears to be a dilemma. From both Deuteronomy and Numbers it is evident that Yahuwah led the Israelites on several occasions through the wilderness, not only by day, but also by night.

Who went in the way before you, to search you out a place to pitch your tents in, in fire by night, to shew you by what way ye should go, and in a cloud by day. Deuteronomy 1:33

And so it was, when the cloud abode from even unto the morning, and that the cloud was taken up in the morning, then they journeyed: whether it was by day or by night that the cloud was taken up, they journeyed. Numbers 9:21

These two examples verify that traveling at night from one location to another did occur. It is likely that the Israelites both traveled and arrived at Mt. Sinai on the night of the 15th of Sivan. In this way Yahuwah protected His Sabbath, and Moses and the Israelites were able to keep it holy unto the Lord.

Remember, it was only two months previously that the Lord Yahuwah waited until sunset to lead the Israelites out of Egypt, by night on the 15th of Abib, to protect His Holy Sabbath. The very next month Yahuwah protected His Sabbath hours by waiting until sunset on the 15th of Iyar to send the quail for food. Both of these previous examples of Yahuwah's mighty providence began at night after the Sabbath hours were passed. He certainly could have and would have repeated the pattern in the exact same manner in their arrival at Mt. Sinai which was also at night to protect His Holy Sabbath hours.

The Lord Yahuwah changes not. All three of these after sunset events demonstrate the sacredness of His Holy seventh-day Sabbath. They show that Yahuwah will go to great lengths to protect the sanctity of the Sabbath hours. If Yahuwah had led the Israelites to travel from Rephidim to Sinai, a short distance of one to three miles, during the daylight hours of the 15th, there would have been instant confusion among the people in regard to acceptable Sabbath keeping. They would have wondered why just the day before they had gathered a double portion of manna so as not to break the Sabbath by doing any work on it, and now it was O.K. to travel and pitch tents, creating much confusion. This was yet another reason for Yahuwah's consistency. Should we not follow His example and seek to keep His luni-solar calendar as it is defined in Scripture, not only in precept but also in His timely details?

There are several points regarding the New Moons that should be considered. It must be clarified that New Moons are never seventh-day Sabbaths. There is however, a New Moon Feast Sabbath one time per year in the fall known as Feast of Trumpets. New Moon days are the first days of the count of each month, but are not part of the count of week days (Ezekiel 46:1). There is no directive from heaven with a "thus saith the Lord" on how manna was to be gathered for New Moons. We know that manna fell for 40 years while the Israelites wandered in the wilderness. Simply because it is not clearly identified as to how to approach the New Moon days by gathering manna or not gathering manna, does not mean New Moon days were not used to designate the weekly cycles and Sabbaths. One thing is certain: there was never a command that this newly restored week was not to be governed by the New Moon. Of equal importance, there is also no scriptural command stating that weeks were to cycle in a successive unending chain. The unbroken chain of successive weeks has been assumed to be true, as it has been in harmony with the only calendar followed or wondered after by the whole world.

Since New Moons are not seventh-day Sabbaths, it is possible that they would have gathered manna on New Moon days. A parallel point to consider is that scripture gives exactly the same amount of direction for how to gather manna for New Moons, as it does for all of the Holy Feast days, which is none. Yet there is no question that the holy appointed Feast days were kept at their appointed times beginning that very first month of Abib. And it cannot be overlooked that the Feast days boldly declare in detail the luni-solar calendar layout, including New Moons, work days, and seventh-day Sabbaths. There were four Holy Feast days that were designated to be Sabbaths that never fell on seventh-day Sabbaths. These would include Nisan 21st, which is the last day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread; Sivan 9, which is the day of Pentecost, also called the Feast of Weeks; Tisrei 1, which is Feast of Trumpets, and finally Tisrei 10, which is the Day of Atonement. The jury is still out on whether the Israelites were to gather manna for any New Moon days or Feast days other than the seventh-day Sabbath. My inclination is toward their not gathering a double portion on the previous day to a New Moon day and the other feasts.

From the evidence provided by Moses, it is apparent that these first three months in a row had identical calendation, and should be a signal that the calendar of the Bible and the Roman Gregorian calendar are not one and the same. After all, two identical months in a row rarely happen on our modern calendar, but never three, for it is an impossibility. You simply cannot add up the date and time details in each of these three months and come up with any other calendar structure other than that of the Creator's luni-solar calendar design. It is too divinely unique to be of a man made origin. Man made calendation tends toward human convenience, and sets up holidays that are not Yahuwah's. The Creator's Luni-solar calendar proactively teaches man the ways of Yahuwah, His Holy feast days instruct in His detailed plan to restore mankind into His image. Yahuwah's true seventh-day Sabbaths are by their very design, a sign of allegiance to our Creator and His true calendar.

Genesis 1, Exodus 12, 16 and 19 all demonstrate that days are the daylight hours, while nights are the darkness. As evening follows morning, it makes up the two halves of the twelve daylight hours, while the nights are not defined by hours, but by an altogether different system of measurement known as the four watches. The "day" was divinely ordained by the Creator to begin at sunrise by the giving of the manna, and was to end at sunset as Yahuwah demonstrated by sending the quail after the Sabbath hours had passed. Yahuwah was particular and detailed as He restored to Moses and the Israelites His calendation details, of which the foundations had been appointed at creation. His ordained time system had been lost over the years of Egyptian captivity. This was not a new time system Yahuwah introduced to Moses, but a restoration of the original. The same is true today, as this is not an introduction to a new calendation system, but rather it is a return to the Creator ordained and sanctified luni-solar calendation system born out in scripture.

It has been said, "a picture is worth a thousand words", and below are three amazingly harmonious illustrations for comparison of the Creator's three identical calendation months in a row. The New Moons and Sabbaths all line up in their appointed order. These three illustrations represent the weighty evidence that the Creator's calendar is grafted from a different vine than that of the modern Roman calendar: one is man made, and the other divine.

Month #1 Abib Passover & the Exodus


Month #2 Iyar Heavenly Manna


Month #3 Sivan Arrival at Mt. Sinai


If the Lord of Creation restored the exact timing of the creation week to Moses and the Hebrew people, then perhaps His people today should take notice. When a thing is restored, by definition, it is being brought back to its original state. Additionally, it would only make sense that Yahuwah would choose to do His restoring in perfect rhythm with the time signature of His creation week.

There are several more details that have been inserted in the Exodus account that are not apparent in the Genesis rendering. This is apparent in the structure of the month, beginning with the sighting of the first visible crescent moon. It has been found that while the phrase, "New Moon" is absent from most of our modern English translations, the word month literally means New Moon. New Moons are integral to the counting and placement of the seventh-day Sabbaths. While there was no mention of a New Moon/month in the creation week account, it becomes evident that Yahuwah's six work days followed by a seventh-day Sabbath are not a chain of uninterrupted cycles. Rather, He created four fixed weeks and placed them into His lunar months just as a gemstone is placed within a pre-appointed setting. All are precisely placed into His well defined yearly calendation formula.

Yahuwah naturally included the knowledge of the sun, moon and stars, and how they designate and rule (measure) time over His entire created domain (jurisdiction). He showed them how the sun measures the "daylights" and solar years; while the moon measures the "nights", the luni-solar years, the months, the weeks, and the placement of the seventh-day Sabbaths, and all the holy appointed Feast days. Remember what is said by the Lord Yahuwah to Moses and Aaron in the Exodus 12:1 account. "This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you." Exodus 12:1 Since Yahuwah is restoring what was lost, He is reestablishing that the very day He was speaking to Moses, was the exact same day, month, and beginning of the year as that of creation/Genesis account, when it says, "In the beginning", only 2500 years later. It is an undisputable fact that Yahuwah taught all of these truths to Moses, because it was Moses who gave us our written record for both the Genesis/Creation account as well as the Exodus account.

Weighty and detailed evidence has been gathered from these three identical months in a row, and they stand united as a witness confirming the Creator's luni-solar calendar. Listed below are the most significant points:

The modern Roman Gregorian calendar is not one and the same as that of scripture, because it is an utter impossibility for it to have three consecutive months in a row that are identical. Specifically this means that because the weeks float throughout the months it is not possible to have the days of the week match the days of the month for three consecutive months. Exodus 12, 16, and 19
Yahuwah's monthly calendar structure begins with a New Moon followed by four successive fixed weeks, each and every month. This is self evident in each of these three months by using the dates that were provided. First these dates locate the Sabbaths, and then by counting backwards the New Moon is defined. In each case the first day of the first week of each month is actually the second day of the month. Therefore the first day of the month is never the first day of the week. Exodus 12, 16, 19.
Other than in these three months, Yahuwah's true seventh-day Sabbaths cannot be located without first locating the New Moon. Exodus 12, 16.
Unbroken successive weeks are a myth created by the Romans to bolster their Gregorian successive week calendar. Exodus 12, 16, and 19.
The day begins at sunrise and ends at sunset according the scriptural rendering. Genesis 1:3-5; Exodus 12, 16, and 19.
Evening and morning is not synonymous with night and day, but rather evening and morning are two halves of the "daylight" hours according to the Lord Yahuwah in Genesis 1:5 & supported by Exodus 12,16 and 19.
The night is separate from the day and reckoned by four watches: the Even Watch, the Midnight Watch, the Cock Crowing Watch, and finally the Morning Watch. Genesis 1:3-5; Mark 13:35.
Through the details of the night of Passover and the giving of manna the following month, the parameters of the Sabbath day is discovered to begin at dawn and end at sunset, including only the "daylight" hours. Compare Exodus 12 and 16 with Genesis 1:3-5.
The seventh-day Sabbath is fixed into each month on the 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th. Genesis 1:5
Through the details of Passover, the Exodus, the giving of the quail, and the arrival at Sinai, Yahuwah demonstrated that Sabbath never includes any part of the darkness of night, but is only the "daylight hours". Exodus 12, 16, and 19
The seventh-day Sabbath is neither Saturday nor Sunday. Exodus 12, 16, 19
The count to Pentecost presents weighty evidence that the seventh-day Sabbath must be reckoned by the phases of the moon. It also establishes the third month in a row as confirmation of Yahuwah's ordained luni-solar calendation system. Exodus 19 and Leviticus 23:15, 16.
The Lord Yahuwah restored to Moses & the Israelites the same calendation structure that He had given to Adam and Eve at Creation, only with a few added details. If the calendar structure had not been precisely the same, Moses would have questioned the Lord. Since Moses was the one who recorded both the Creation story and the Exodus story alike, we can be certain that they were one in the same. Exodus 12:1-3
We can have confidence that the time signature that the Lord Yahuwah appointed in the heavens at creation is the same one that He reintroduced to Moses and the Hebrew people at the time of the Passover and Exodus from Egypt. Then Yahuwah confirmed His time signature a second month in a row by the falling of the heavenly manna, illustrating the calendation structure into which He places His Sabbaths. Finally, the Lord Yahuwah fully restored His unique time signature with the arrival at Mt. Sinai, on the exact date and even at night, just as when they had left Egypt two months prior. Thus weighty evidence establishes the third recorded month in a row as having the exact same calendation details.

We can also have confidence that this is the same time signature or calendation that Christ kept during His life, even through to the cross and resurrection, as He fulfilled the Passover events in every particular. Today the Lord Yahuwah is restoring His time signature as demonstrated in the Creator's luni-solar calendar to His faithful followers as He prepares to deliver them from the bondage and slavery of sin in this world, and prepare this remnant for the true Promised Land. Just like the Hebrews of old, the final generation will in haste have many truths to learn, and many false teachings to unlearn.

Then God said, "Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs (Sabbaths) and seasons (months), and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth"; and it was so. Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:14-19

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 the LORD who sanctifies you. Exodus 31:13-14

Age will not make error into truth, and truth can afford to be fair. No true doctrine will lose anything by close investigation. Council to Writers & Editors, p. 35.

Thanks for reading and replying,
First of all, where does it say in the bible that the night time begins the new day?
On the contrary, Genesis 1: 5, says that there was evening, and there was morning, and that was one day. So, if a day starts at sunset and ends at sunset, as commonly supposed among sdas, then why does not it say in Genesis 1, "there was evening, and there was evening, one day". Simply, a day starts as sun starts to rise.
Yes, indeed God made it so simple for anyone to know when a new day begins, it simply begins at sunrise.

Every one could easily know that at sunrise a new day starts just as simple and easy as you said they would know it begins at sunset.

It is not logical for darkness, a time of rest and going to bed, to be the starting point for the day. It would be more logical to start the day at sunrise. but just because we are not used to the idea, it sounds strange to us. Anyway, let's not depend on human logic so much. If we entirely rely on logic, we may not beleive all the tenents of our faith.

Secondly, this teaching of starting the day at sunrise does not contradict biblical teaching on the Sabbath being the 7th day, the day of rest for God. The issue is: the sabbath is God's seventh day but on which calendar?

At creation, God set the basic principles of his calendar, as found in Genesis 1:14-18, God placed the sun and moon to rule time. However, the Israilites lost sight of this calendar under Egyptian slavery, but God in the book of Exodus restored his lost calendar.
In Christ's time, there were two calendars: the pagan Julian calendar of the romans and the biblical calendar established at creation. Jesus kept the Sabbath, now according to which of these two calendars did jesus keep the Sabbath???? These two are not the same.

Concerning new revelations, sister white was more than clear:
"There is no excuse for anyone in taking the position that there is no more truth to be revealed, and that all our expositions on Scripture are without error. The fact that certain doctrines have been held as truth for many years by our people, is not a proof that our ideas are infalliable. No true doctrine will lose anything by close investigation" (Councils to Writers and Editors, page 35).

"Different periods in the history of the church have each been marked by the development of some special truth, adapted to the necessities of God's at that time. The Lord gives a specia truth for the people in an emergency" (Great Controversy, page 609)
It is very clear that:
1) not all revealations are without error.
2)not all the truth has been revealed, (at least up to the time of Sister White).

There is only one true Sabbath for God, the 7th day according to God's calendar and not according to our Gregorian calendar.

Of course, the first day of the week comes immediately after the 7th, but again the quesion is this: according to which calendar????

The Catholic church was not satisfied with outlawing the divine calendar in order to conceal the true Sabbath, it also banned the keeping of the gregorian saturday. They wanted to get rid of this whole concept of the 7th day, even after the change of calendars.

I am not saying that another day is the Sabbath. The seventh day of the week is always the Sabbath but according to God's calendar not the gregorian calendar. in other words, when it is God's Sabbath according to his calendar, it falls on a day other than the gregorian Saturday.

if catholics keep sunday according to God's calendar and would persecute sabbath keepers, there would still be people who would keep the right Sabbath. When then the catholics would gain?

so, in your opinion,do you think will keep Sunday according to the biblical calendar or according to the julian/gregorian roman calendar.

so, when Sunday law is enforced, all who do not sanctify Sunday, a sign of irreverence to the pope's authority, will be persecuted. So, even if I keep Thursday, for example, believing it to be the biblical Sabbath, and i don't respect the observance of Sunday, I still would be persecuted. If you keep saturday, and dont observe Sunday, you would still be persecuted.

When i talk about the feasts, i am interested not in keeping them as the Jews did, but my intetion is to use their time details as landmarks for setting the time of the real Sabbath.

Yes, true the Gregorian calendar of 1582 did not change the days of the week, but the problem lies deeper, the problem goes back to the time of Constantine who outlawed the divine calendar that the jews kept but don't keep it any more. This brough a mess to the feasts and sabbath days.

ordinances depart from before me, saith Yahweh, then the seed of Israel also shall
cease from being a nation before me for ever.”

sun to rule by day: for his mercy endureth for ever: The moon and stars to rule by
night: for his mercy endureth for ever.”

Ecclesiasticus 43:6-10 (Sirach)
He made the moon also to serve in her season for a declaration of times, and a sign of the world. From the moon is the sign of feasts, a light that decreaseth in her perfection. The month is called after her name, increasing wonderfully in her changing, being an instrument of the armies above, shining in the firmament of heaven; The beauty of heaven, the glory of the stars, an ornament giving light in the highest places of the Lord. At the commandment of the Holy One they will stand in their order, and never faint in their watches.

Exodus 12 pinpoints the beginning of the year and month in God's timekeeping. “This shall be the beginning of months for you.”

Each biblical month begins with the new moon, regardless of how that new moon is reckoned, dark, or visible crescent.

The roman Gregorian calendar clearly shows the beginning of months are not set by the new moon.

The Biblical calendar and the roman Gregorian calendar do not work in concert, no matter how hard you try to reconcile them.

The ceremonial system was made up of symbols pointing to Christ, to His sacrifice and His priesthood. This ritual law, with its sacrifices and ordinances, was to be performed by the Hebrews until type met antitype in the death of Christ, the Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world. Then all the sacrificial offerings were to cease. It is this law that Christ "took . . . out of the way, nailing it to His cross." Colossians 2:14. PP365

In consequence of continual transgression, the moral law was repeated in awful grandeur from Sinai. Christ gave to Moses religious precepts which were to govern the everyday life. These statutes were explicitly given to guard the ten commandments. They were not shadowy types to pass away with the death of Christ. They were to be binding upon man in every age as long as time should last. These commands were enforced by the power of the moral law, and they clearly and definitely explained that law. {RH, May 6, 1875 par. 10}

In the time of the end every divine institution is to be restored. The breach made in the law at the time the Sabbath was changed by man, is to be repaired. PK 678

We are to become familiar with the Levitical law in all its bearings; for it contains rules that must be obeyed; it contains the instruction that if studied will enable us to understand better the rule of faith and practice that we are to follow in our dealings with one another. No soul has any excuse for being in darkness. Those who receive Christ by faith will receive also power to become the sons of God. 1BC 1110

He did not stop with giving them the precepts of the Decalogue. The people had shown themselves so easily led astray that He would leave no door of temptation unguarded. Moses was commanded to write, as God should bid him, judgments and laws giving minute instruction as to what was required. These directions relating to the duty of the people to God, to one another, and to the stranger were only the principles of the Ten Commandments amplified and given in a specific manner, that none need err. They were designed to guard the sacredness of the ten precepts engraved on the tables of stone. PP 364

The light esteem in which the law of God is held, even by religious leaders, has been productive of great evil. The teaching which has become so widespread, that the divine statutes are no longer binding upon men, is the same as idolatry in its effect upon the morals of the people. Those who seek to lessen the claims of God's holy law are striking directly at the foundation of the government of families and nations. Religious parents, failing to walk in His statutes, do not command their household to keep the way of the Lord. The law of God is not made the rule of life… A reformation in this respect is needed--a reformation which shall be deep and broad. Parents need to reform; ministers need to reform; they need God in their households. PP 143

God’s Statutes are connected to the descent of the Holy Spirit!
The prophecies in the eighteenth of Revelation will soon be fulfilled. During the proclamation of the third angel's message, "another angel" is to "come down from heaven, having great power," and the earth is to be "lighted with his glory."…
During the loud cry… the light of present truth will be seen flashing everywhere…
The Word declares: "Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes." This is the descent of the Holy Spirit, sent from God to do its office work…
As men, women, and children proclaim the gospel, the Lord will open the eyes of the blind to see his statutes, and will write upon the hearts of the truly penitent his law… Other chapters will open before us, and in order to discern their meaning, we shall need keen perception.

Amo 8:5 Saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit?

Isa 66:23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.

 New Moon Days
 Work Days

Exo 16:26 Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day, which is the sabbath, in it there shall be none.
Hi Paul,
What are you trying to tell us with this lengthy essay? That the calendar system has changed throughout history? We know that... and it doesn't matter. Why? The days of the week have NEVER been changed. So we are keeping the same Sabbath that Jesus kept. Without a shadow of a doubt. And since we no longer keep the feast days there is no need to do complex calculations about months and how they relate to the moon. That simply does not affect anything we believe to be important. The Sabbath doctrine is SIMPLE. There is no need to make it complex. We are not keeping the wrong day.

So why should we care about lunar cycles relating to Sabbath? I have studied it and see no reason to.
The calendar was originally fixed by observation, and ultimately by calculation. Up to the fall of the Temple (AD 70), witnesses who saw the new moon came forward and were strictly examined and if their evidence was accepted the month was fixed by the priests. Eventually the authority passed to the Sanhedrin and ultimately to the patriarch. Gradually observation gave place to calculation. The right to determine the calendar was reserved to the Patriarchate. The Jews of Mesopotamia [in Babylon] tried in vain to establish their own calendar but the prerogative of Palestine was zealously defended."
So long as Palestine remained a religious centre, it was naturally to the homeland that the Diaspora looked for its calendar. Uniformity was essential, for if different parts had celebrated feasts on different days, confusion would have ensued. It was not until the 4th century A.D. that Babylon fixed the calendar." Encyclopedia Britannica; Vol 4, article "Calendar"

Encyclopedia Britannica has this to say about the modern “week” and the calendar:
In the 21st century, we take for granted a seven-day week. However, in some ancient cultures, the length of the week differed. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica:
“Among primitive peoples, it was common to count moons (months) rather than days, but later a period shorter than the month was thought more convenient, and an interval between market days was adopted. In West Africa some tribes used a four-day interval; in central Asia five days was customary; the Assyrians adopted five days and the Egyptians, 10 days, whereas the Babylonians attached significance to the days of the lunation that were multiples of seven. In ancient Rome, markets were held at eight-day intervals; because of the Roman method of inclusive numeration, the market day was denoted nundinae (“ninth-day”) and the eight-day week, an inter nundium.” Measurement of time and types of calendars: Standard units and cycles”; Britannica 2002 Deluxe Edition; 1994-2002; Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc.

"The (early) Hebrews employed lunar seven-day weeks, which ended with special observances on the seventh day but none the less were tied to the moon's course."
Hutton Webster in his book Rest Days, page 254-255

"These imported [from Babylon] superstitions eventually led Jewish rabbis to call Saturn Shabbti, 'the star of the Sabbath.' [and] it was not until the first century of our era, when the planetary week had become an established institution, that the Jewish Sabbath seems always to have corresponded to Saturn's Day [Saturday]." Rest Days, p244 Hutton Webster

Talking about the time prior to the Diaspora, Hutton Webster tells us that
an old and still common theory derives the Sabbath institution from the worship of
SATURN after which planet the first day of the astrological week [Saturday] received
its designation. The theory is untenable for more than one reason. In the first place the Hebrews did not name their weekdays after the planets, but indicated them by ordinal numbers. In the second place SATURN'S DAY [SATURDAY] BEGAN THE PLANETARY WEEK, while the Jewish Sabbath was regarded as the LAST DAY of the seven, a suitable position for a rest day. And in the third place neither the Hebrews nor any other Oriental people ever worshipped the planet Saturn as a god and OBSERVED HIS DAY AS A FESTIVAL
(Rest Days, Hutton Webster p. 243).

"...each lunar month was divided into four parts corresponding to the four phases of the moon. The first week of each month began with the new moon, so that, as the lunar month was one or two days more than four periods of seven days, the additional days were not reckoned at all." The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia, Vol 10. p482 Article "week"


The idea of the week, as a subdivision of the month [was found]...in Babylonia, where
each lunar month was divided into four parts, CORRESPONDING TO THE FOUR
PHASES OF THE MOON. The first week of each month BEGAN WITH THE NEW
MOON, so that, as the lunar month was one or two days more than four periods of seven days, these additional days were not reckoned at all. Every seventh day
(sabbatum) was regarded as an unlucky day. This method of reckoning time spread
westward through Syria and Palestine, and WAS ADOPTED BY THE ISRAELITES,
probably after they settled in Palestine
(The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia vol. 10, p. 482. Article "Week.").

"The Hebrew Sabbathon was celebrated at intervals of seven days, corresponding with changes in the moon's phases..." Encyclopedia Biblica, 1899 edit., p.4180

In the years following Clement of Alexandria’s time, an ominous change started to take place that was to radically change the Christian concept of the Sabbath. “This intimate connection,” records the Encyclopedia Biblica, “between the week and the month was soon dissolved. It is certain that the week soon followed a development of its own, and it became the custom -- without paying any regard to the days of the month (i.e. the lunar month) -- ...so that THE NEW MOON NO LONGER COINCIDED WITH THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK”
Encyclopedia Biblica (The MacMillan Company, 1899. P. 5290).

Then, on page 4179 of the same encyclopedia, we read: “The introduction...of the custom of
celebrating the Sabbath every 7th day, IRRESPECTIVE OF THE RELATIONSHIP OF THE DAY TO
THE MOON’S PHASES, led to a complete separation from the ancient view of the Sabbath...” Encyclopedia Biblica 1899 p4179

"The four quarters of the Moon supply an obvious division of the month... it is most significant that in the older parts of the Hebrew scriptures the new moon and the sabbath are almost invariably mentioned together. The [lunar] month is beyond question an old sacred division of time common to all the semites; even the Arabs who received the week at quite a late period from the Syrians, greeted the New Moon with religious acclamations. We cannot tell [exactly] when the Sabbath became dissociated from the month."
Encyclopedia Biblica (1899 edit) pp 4178 and 4179

"The Hebrew Month is a lunar month and the quarter of this period-one phase of the moon-appears to have determined the week of seven days."
Encyclopedia Biblica, (1899 edit.) p.4780

"Among all early nations the lunar months were the readiest large divisions of time... (and was divided in 4 weeks), corresponding (to) the phases or the quarters of the moon. In order to connect the reckoning by weeks with the lunar month, we find that all ancient nations observed some peculiar solemnities to mark the day of the New Moon."
The Popular and Critical Bible Encyclopedia )1904 edit) Vol. 3, p. 1497

"In the time of the earliest prophets, the New Moon stood in the same line with another lunar observance, the Sabbath. Ezekiel, who curiously enough frequently dates his prophecies on the New Moon.... describes the gate of the inner court of the (new) temple looking eastward as kept shut for the six working days, but opened on the Sabbath and the New Moon."
Scribner's Dictionary of the Bible (1898 edit) p.521

"The [lunar] calendar was used by all the original disciples of Yeshua. This original Nazarene lunar-solar calendar was supplanted by a Roman "planetary week" and calendar in 135 C.E. when the 'Bishops of the Circumcision' (i.e. legitimate Nazarene successors to Yeshua) were displaced from Jerusalem. This began a three hundred year controversy concerning the true calendar and the correct Sabbath." Shawui Calendar: Ancient Shawui Observance

Early historical records clearly confirms that very early Gentile Christians also kept the same Sabbath as the Nazarenes. This practice was first changed by [Pope] Sixtus in 126 AD, and later officially changed by a royal Roman decree from the emperor Constantine. Observance of the Sabbath day was made illegal and observance of a "sunday" of a fixed week was made mandatory for all except farmers. Previous to this time the Roman saturday was the first day of the Roman week. The veneration of the Sun in the second century AD began to pressure Roman culture to change the first day of their week from Saturn Day to sunday.
Shawui Sabbath: Ancient Sabbath Observance

“Most theologians and some scholars assume that mainstream Jewish society, at the time of Jesus...was practicing a fixed seven-day week which was the same as the modern fixed seven-day week. This is extremely doubtful. The change, from a lunar to a fixed week, was brought about by the power and influence of Rome. As long as the Nazarenes held power in Jerusalem, all Roman practices and customs, including that of THE CONSECUTIVE WEEK, WERE HELD AT BAY”
Shawui Sabbath: Ancient Sabbath Observance


The association of sabbath rest with the account of creation must have been very
ancient among the Hebrews, and it is noteworthy that no other Semitic peoples, even
the Babylonians, have any tradition of the creation in six days. It would appear that
the primitive Semites had FOUR CHIEF MOON DAYS, probably the first, eighth,
fifteenth, and twenty-second of each month, CALLED SABBATHS from the fact that
there was a tendency to end work before them so that they might be celebrated
joyfully. Among the Babylonians these seventh days through astrological conceptions
became ill-omened, while the sabbath in the middle of the month [15th] was made a
day of propitiation, and its name was construed as meaning "the day for ending the
wrath of the gods." The Israelites, on the other hand, made the sabbath the feasts of
a living and holy God. The work of man became symbolic of the work of God, and
human rest of divine rest, so that the sabbaths became preeminently days of rest.
Since, moreover, the LUNAR MONTH had 29 or 30 days, the normal lapse of time
between sabbaths was six days, although sometimes seven or eight; and six working
days were accordingly assigned to the creation, which was to furnish a prototype for
human life. THE CONNECTION OF THE SABBATH WITH LUNAR PHASES, however,
WAS [LATER] DISCARDED BY THE ISRAELITES..."
(The New Schaff-Herzog Religious Encyclopedia pp. 135-136).

Yes, What does the Bible tell us about His real sabbath is really true. Ezekiel 46:1 clearly tell us that YHWH since from the beginning of Creation already made (3) Three kinds of days: "This is what the Lord God says; The east gate of the inner court yard will stay shut on the six working days, but it will be opened on the Sabbath day and on the day of the New Moon.":

This was YHWH's original calendar since the beginning of creation. 

He then stated that this is the same practice that would happened in the  New Heaven which can be seen at Isaiah 66:22-23 which says: 22 "I will make new heavens and the new earth, which will last forever," says the Lord . "In the same way , your names and your children will always be with me. 23 All people will come to worship me every Sabbath and every New Moon , says the Lord. 

Creation uses Luni-Solar Calendar ----------->            <-------------Tomorrow will also use Luni-Solar Calendar

                                                                         ?

                                                           How about us now?

                          Are you also using the Luni-Solar Calendar/YHWH's Calendar?

                                                Or the enemies Gregoria Calendar?

                                                      Are we in line with YHWH?

Open your mind now and think it many times. YHWH give us this chance to come out from Babylon. . .

Why not study it now and open your heart for the submission of His calling????

                                                                     

Oh boy not again Please leave those alone David, its the devils way of leading us away from the true Sabbath.
