NEW MOON PLAYS NO ROLE IN SABBATH SETTINGS!!
If you agree with this, please answer the questions below.
IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN 6 DAYS OF LABOR ONE DAY OF REST FROM THE BEGINNING OF TIME!! (We have no use for the moon with regard to this.)
One Sabbath group I belong too expresses it this way:
“We are hoping that the True Sabbath will be understood, as it was established as a cycle at the first week. We are on the side of the Sabbath being instituted from the count of the first day, and the Seventh Day Sabbath is not dependent on the moon or sun to determine the days other than the daily sunset, and was created on the fourth day.”
One of my friends expressed similar sentiments when he said to me:
“…in the Torah we read “6 days you shall labor and on the seventh day you shall have a sabbath to Yahweh <sic> your elohim”…a 30-day month prevents the 6 days, then 7th, then 6 days cycle”
If you think the rosh chodesh or Renewed Moon has nothing whatsoever to do with determining the moed or moedims; the feast days and set-apart times of Yahuwah this post is not for you.
However, if you agree with Psalm 104:19 that, “Yahuwah appointed the moon for the appointed times, set feasts, appointed meetings…” and intended the moon for an appointed sign or signal then read on.
If the seven day weekly cycle of 6 days of work one day of rest continued uninterrupted since creation, then eventually this 7 day uninterrupted cycle will march right across these commands:
Leviticus 23:21 YOU SHALL MAKE PROCLAMATION THE SAME DAY, summoning a set-apart assembly; YOU SHALL DO NO SERVILE WORK (LABOR OR BUSINESS) THAT DAY. It shall be a statute forever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.
Leviticus 23:25 YOU SHALL DO NO SERVILE WORK (LABOR OR BUSINESS) ON IT, but you shall present an offering made by fire to Yahuwah.
Leviticus 23:35 ON THE FIRST DAY shall be a set-apart convocation; YOU SHALL DO NO SERVILE WORK (LABOR OR BUSINESS) ON THAT DAY.
Numbers 28:18 ON THE FIRST DAY there shall be a set-apart [summoned] assembly; YOU SHALL DO NO SERVILE WORK (LABOR OR BUSINESS) THAT DAY.
Numbers 28:26 Also IN THE DAY OF THE FIRSTFRUITS, when you offer a cereal offering of new grain to Yahuwah at your Feast of Weeks, you shall have a set-apart [summoned] assembly; YOU SHALL DO NO SERVILE WORK (LABOR OR BUSINESS).
Numbers 29:1 ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE SEVENTH MONTH (chodesh), you shall have a set-apart [summoned] assembly; YOU SHALL DO NO SERVILE WORK (LABOR OR BUSINESS). It is a day of blowing of trumpets for you.
Numbers 29:12 And ON THE FIFTEENTH DAY OF THE SEVENTH MONTH (chodesh) you shall have a set-apart [summoned] assembly; YOU SHALL DO NO SERVILE WORK (LABOR OR BUSINESS), and you shall keep a feast to Yahuwah for seven days.
Numbers 29:35 ON THE EIGHTH DAY you shall have a solemn assembly; YOU SHALL DO NO SERVILE WORK (LABOR OR BUSINESS).
In every instance above “servile” is Strong’s Hebrew #5656 `abodah meaning labor, work, or business. And in every instance above “work” is Strong’s Hebrew #4399 mĕla’kah meaning occupation, work, or business.
So if the Sabbaths are on a continuous 7 day cycle since creation, then each year that cycle will march across the commanded days that we are to do no labor, work or business like this: 1,2,3, do no servile work, 4, 5, 6, 7 Sabbath.
HERE’S WHAT I WANT TO KNOW; when your 7 day uninterrupted cycle marches across a day we are commanded not to do labor, what do you do? Do you labor on that day in obedience to the 6 days you labor commandment? Do you count that day as a day of labor even though you did not labor? Do you not count that day and resume your count the next day?
If you never considered this before, you could just admit that.
