Offerings in Numbers 28-29. Examples of how the Month worked.

In Numbers 28 we see the offerings which were to be made by the children of Israel.

The first one was a daily offering. It was to be made on a continual basis.

Numbers 28:3
“And thou shalt say unto them, This is the offering made by fire which ye shall offer unto the LORD; two lambs of the first year without spot day by day, for a continual burnt offering.”

The second one was a Sabbath offering to be made on every Sabbath as well as the continual daily offering.

Numbers 28:10
“This is the burnt offering of every sabbath, beside the continual burnt offering, and his drink offering.”

The third one was a monthly offering which also was to be made at the beginning of every month (new moon) besides the continual daily offering.

Numbers 28:15
“And one kid of the goats for a sin offering unto the LORD shall be offered, beside the continual burnt offering, and his drink offering.”

One item I think needs to be pointed out just here, is that the sacrifice which was offered on each Month only contained in addition the continual daily offering. There was never a Sabbath offering made on the day of the New moon (the beginning of the months).

Next there was the Passover and days on Unleavened Bread Offerings

Passover
Numbers 28:16
“And in the fourteenth day of the first month is the passover of the LORD.”

Unleavened Bread
Numbers 28:17
“And in the fifteenth day of this month is the feast: seven days shall unleavened bread be eaten.”

The fifteenth day was also a Sabbath – a Holy Convocation as Leviticus 23 tells us what a Holy convocation means

Leviticus 23:3
“Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings.”

Numbers 28:18 tells us that it was a Holy Convocation
“In the first day shall be an holy convocation; ye shall do no manner of servile work therein:”

Numbers 28:24 also tells us that these offerings were to be made in addition to the continual daily offerings.
“After this manner ye shall offer daily, throughout the seven days, the meat of the sacrifice made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD: it shall be offered beside the continual burnt offering, and his drink offering.”

Feast of Weeks
This also had its own offerings beside the continual daily offerings.
Numbers 28:31
“Ye shall offer them beside the continual burnt offering, and his meat offering, (they shall be unto you without blemish) and their drink offerings.”

Feast of Trumpets
This is a very special day as it is the only day in the Bible where it is a holy convocation on the first day of the month. It is the first day of the seventh month.

Numbers 29:1
“And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work: it is a day of blowing the trumpets unto you.”

It is important to note one very special item:

Numbers 29:6
“Beside the burnt offering of the month, and his meat offering, and the daily burnt offering, and his meat offering, and their drink offerings, according unto their manner, for a sweet savour, a sacrifice made by fire unto the LORD.”

This day, the first of the month has the New Moon offering and the Daily offering and the Feast of Trumpet offering. Why is this important? If the Sabbath day above in Numbers 28:10 were to contain the New Moon day it would be spelt out in scripture, but it is not. They are separate days.

The Day of Atonement
Again here is offered its own offering in addition to the continual daily offering.

Numbers 29:11
“One kid of the goats for a sin offering; beside the sin offering of atonement, and the continual burnt offering, and the meat offering of it, and their drink offerings.”

Feast of Tabernacles
Again the 15th day of the seventh month is a holy convocation The other day to be holy was the eighth day of this feast, the 22nd of the seventh month.

And in each of the eight days it has its own sacrifice beside the continual offering. e.g.

Leviticus 23:19
“And one kid of the goats for a sin offering; beside the continual burnt offering, and the meat offering thereof, and their drink offerings”

Leviticus 23:22
And one goat for a sin offering; beside the continual burnt offering, and his meat offering, and his drink offering.

Leviticus 23:25
“And one kid of the goats for a sin offering; beside the continual burnt offering, his meat offering, and his drink offering.”

etc…

The other item I want to point out is again the word used here as continual, or daily as it is sometimes translated. The word continual which we recognise here as daily comes from the stongs word tamiyd, H8548. This word is also used in Daniel 8 and I have highlighted it below:

13  Then I heard H8085 a certain H259 Holy One H6918 speaking  H1696 to another H259 Holy One H6918 who said H559 to that certain one H6422 which spoke H1696 “(Until when) the vision H2377 of the continuously (without interruption) H8548  transgression H6588 which stuns, stupefies and makes desolate H8074 will be permitted H5414 to be set apart from God H6944 such that the Sun, moon and stars H6635 are trodden upon?  H4823

This is speaking about a calendar. A calendar which stuns and stupifies all. A continuous calendar. The difference between Yahuwah’s (God’s) Calendar and the Calendar we are using today is that God’s Calendar did not have continuously cycling weeks, as this very article also demonstrates.
