To Moon or not to Moon Part 10

“My People have forsaken Me for the Moon!”

Question for today:

How can we know for sure which ‘no god’ takes priority with YaHuWaH’s people?

What are the lessons learned so far?

Judah! … was the entity responsible for removing YaHuWaH’s Eternal Calendar keys when she should have been paying attention to her job description of teaching ALL of the laws, instead of changing many of them!

Galilee! … had the ‘Light’ for calendar!

Now that we know Judah is the most responsible for removing the calendar keys, are we going to find out which ‘no god’ had the most sway over them?

Yes, we will find the evidence from the Scripture records! Maybe that will be a surprise or maybe some have figured it out already.

In this study, we have a variety of areas to investigate and many more questions to ponder. Never forget, the Scriptures must provide the answers to every question!  We will begin with our usual review, then ponder some thoughts before the rest of the study.

Points to Ponder and Questions of Wonder

  1. Sun and moon worship received a solid foothold with Nimrod and Semiramis after the flood.
  2. Between Adam to Noah, there is no Scriptural record against the patriarchs for worshipping the sun or moon gods.
  3. Of all the pagan gods, the sun god and moon goddess represent the major ‘no gods’ in sacred history.
  4. If the sun god and moon goddess are the dominant pagan gods, which one of the two takes the #1 position?
  5. If sacred regards, and/or allegiance of any kind, is given to the sun and moon for any reason, is this classed as worship?
  6. If the sighting of the sun and moon are part of the worship calendar, is that action regarded as worship?
  7. Will the Eternal Calendar study be able to conclude which is more deceptive: the worship of the sun god, or the moon goddess?

Now that we know exactly who is really responsible for removing the Eternal Calendar keys, we are ready to address the next important question…

Which ‘no god’ will gain the authority of the calendar?

… the sun god?

… or the moon goddess?

Shall we expose the answer right up front so everyone can follow the problem?

The Moon Goddess!

  • As the Tanakh closes on the last 1500 years of history for Yisra’El and Judah – it is a sad commentary to find them very unrepentant, continuing even faster on their path of abomination, adopting the worship practices of the pagans.
  • This historical piece of history is a pattern of what not to do, and of where not to go.
  • As YaHuWaH’s calendar is being restored, He can/will be worshipped on His terms, not pagan terms.
  • The next piece of this investigation will be a very specific study on some secular historical information of the moon. Can the moon command (or deserve) any sacred regard?
  • Will the study reveal if we are dealing with a:
  • Lunar Deception (and/or a)
  • Lunatic Authority?

Yes, we will be exposing more on the moon in this study especially through …

  1. Egyptian and Babylonian history
  2. Talmud information
  3. Bible Dictionaries and Commentators

Egyptian and Babylon History of Moon Worship

Ever wonder about the roots of Moon Worship?

No wonder YaHuWaH said not to give ‘sacred regards’ to the moon!

Egyptian Calendar History (1500 BC)

  • About the 7th century, BC Egypt’s 360-day calendar (that was in use for 1000’s of years) was challenged by the sundial event.
  • Priests were assigned the duty of sighting the new moon for month-start, a practice also observed by Babylon and the Hebrews.
  • Egypt had already mastered the art of constructing pyramids to accurately track the yearly equinox.

Acts 7:22 Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians.

Egyptian Day and Month Start

  • Egyptians began each new day with sunrise.
  • Their new month began with the disappearance of the old moon just before dawn. (Note: the Mul-Apin tablets prove they were on a firm 30 day month.)
  • Their civil calendar was 360 days with an additional 5 days grouped together at the end of the year.
  • The lunar calendar followed the moon cycles to regulate their religious affairs.
  • The lunar calendar {through humanly designed manipulation} also corresponded with the seasons.

Babylonian Calendar History

  • About 2300 BC, Sumerians had a calendar that divided the year into 30 day months [360 day per year].
  • The months began at the first visibility of the new moon. [Remember Isaiah 47:13.]
  • In time, they designed a calendar fitting the luni-solar cycle over 19 years, with 7 yearly intercalations of a 13th month [as the ‘Jews’ have adopted to this day].
  • The months were truly lunar. The ‘new moon day’ began at sunset when the new moon was first visible.

Jewish History of Moon Worship

1st day of the 7th Month

Is the above picture a familiar sighting? Many watch for the crescent moon to establish the 1st day of the 7th month as Yom Teruah / The Feast of Trumpets.

Jewish Calendar History

  • Prior to Hezekiah the keeping of the lunar calendar was simple as each lunar month had 30 days for 12 months – matching the solar yearly timing.
  • From 587 BC – 70 AD the Jewish civil year was Babylonian adding in a 13th intercalated month, a system straight from Babylon.
  • Later, Meton (the Greek, about 432 BC), detailed and refined the Metonic cycle, also accepted by the Jews.
  • The commencement of the month was always determined by the observation of the crescent new moon.

After Nehemiah and Malachi, many feel the Jews were no longer worshipping the sun and moon gods outright.

What did they do with these pagan gods?

Jewish Calendar is Luni-solar

  • By 200 AD –> visual observation of the moon was supplanted by secret –> astronomical calculation.
  • Much was determined according to the Talmud.
  • The Luni-solar calendar (and its Metonic cycle) forms the basis for the computation of the date of Pesach/Passover each year in combination with Hillel’s calendar of 359 AD.
  • Remember (under Constantine): As the Roman religious persecutions continued, Hillel decided to provide an authorized calendar for all time to come, though by doing so he severed the ties which united the Jews of the diaspora to their mother country and to the patriarchate. Jews were then able to calculate the calendar and festival times themselves.

The Effects of a Luni-solar Calendar

When the Jews opted out of allegiance to the Tequfah, another MAJOR AFFECT redesigned their calendar!

In other words…

The calendar was re-designed by giving it a lunar format. By default of a lunar format, the recipient of this worship from man was automatically re-designed from YaHuWaH to Satan.

Another ‘key’ lost?

Judah!

Who muddled with the Divine Calendar?

Answer: The ones who were to preserve it!

The Talmud has NO authority over ‘the’ Scriptures.

Who is responsible for upholding the Moon?

Upon reading the following quotes from the Rabbis under the given website, do take notice that starting the month with the sighting of the moon has NO Scriptural authority.

Consider this website quote:

https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Hebrew_Roots/New_Moon

  • “There is zero scriptural evidence for sighting new moons to determine the beginning of new months. It is based 100% on teachings within the Talmud.”

Quotes for Month Commencement

  1. [T]he new moon began when the thin crescent of the new moon was first visible at sunset.” (Theological wordbook of the Old Testament, vol. 1, p. 266.)
  2. “The ancient [pagan] Greeks recognized the visible new moon as the beginning of the month when they celebrated the ‘sickle of the new moon’ with offerings and meals. This was also the case with the ancient Babylonians who worshiped the new moon as the goddess Isis, and had her wearing horns, which resembled the new moon.” (Theological Dictionary of the New Testament, vol. 4, p. 639.)
  3. “[T]he ancient Jewish calendar depended not on mathematical calculations and arrangements, but was set from month to month according to the physical appearance of the new moon.” (The Pharisees, by Louis Finkelstein, p. 601, Jewish Publication Society, 1938, Philadelphia; based on Talmudic)
  4. “In old Yisra’El the new moon – the day after the crescent was first sighted in the sky – was celebrated by sacrifices and feasting…” (Judaism, by George Foot Moore, professor of the history of religion, Harvard, vol. 2, p. 22, based on Talmudic)
  5. “Rosh Chodesh [is the] Hebrew term meaning ‘the beginning of a month’ applied to the religious half-holiday observed in connection with the appearance of the New Moon; that is, the beginning of each new month of the [Jewish] Hebrew calendar.”
  6. “Philo, the Jewish historian, and contemporary of Yahusha the Messiah and the apostles, says that Moses established the moon of the vernal equinox as the first month of the year. (The Works of Philo, On the Life of Moses II, chapter XLI, Part 222 and 224.) Josephus the Jewish historian also confirms this and defines it as ‘when the sun was in Aries.’ (Josephus, Ant. 3.201; III.x.5.)

Question: Where is the Scripture for these claims in the Torah?

All of this is Jewish Contamination/Abomination in the purest form!

Specific Quotes from Talmud

  1. “In the times of the Second Temple it appears from the Mishnah (R. H. i. 7) that the priests had a court to which witnesses came and reported. This function was afterward taken over by the civil court (see B. Zuckermann, “Materialien zur Entwicklung der Altjüdischen Zeitrechnung im Talmud, “Breslau, 1882). The fixing of the lengths of the months and the intercalation of months was the prerogative of the Sanhedrin, at whose head there was a patriarch… The entire Sanhedrin was not called upon to act in this matter, the decision being left to a special court of three. The Sanhedrin met on the 29th of each month to await the report of the witnesses.”

“On the evening before the announcement of the intercalation the patriarch assembled certain scholars who assisted in the decision. It was then announced to the various Jewish communities by letters. To this epistle was added the reason for the intercalation. A copy of such a letter of Rabban Gamaliel is preserved in the Talmud (Sanh. Xi. 2).”

“In the Mishnah, the book containing the late second century record of Jewish legal rulings and other religious records, we find recorded that the Jew’s religious leaders established rigorous protocols and rituals for determining when the new moon had been sighted,”

(Question again: Where is the Scripture for these claims in the Torah?)

It is time to remember…

Jeremiah 6:16 counseled the people to ‘ask for the old paths’

Thus said יהוה, “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and find rest for yourselves.”

Also remember, Dawid would have written Psalms 81:3-4 according to Moses and Torah.

Quotes regarding Joseph and Psalms 81:3

  1. “Psalms 81 tells us that Joseph instituted the Rosh Chodesh during his tenure as the viceroy of Egypt. Joseph had the power to declare the decree and the people of Egypt, principally the sons of Yisra’El, were delighted to make the recognition of the new moon as a joyful feast. The testimony was to honor Joseph for what he did as a righteous deliverer, who in many ways prefigured the coming Messiah of Yisra’El and the redemption that He would ultimately bring. All of YaHuWaH’s feasts are a role-play of eternal truths in His eternal purposes and keep His redemptive plan before us. What Joseph set in place as a testimony has been established as a ‘statute for Yisra’El, a low of the God of Jacob.” (Psalms 81:3-4) (The Works of Philo, On the Life of Moses II, chapter XLI, Part 222 and 224.) Josephus the Jewish historian also confirms this and defines it as ‘when the sun was in Aries’(Josephus, Ant. 3.201; III.x.5). (Note again: Ps 81:3 has no basis from Torah to blow the trumpet on the new moon!)

Quotes regarding Moses and Numbers 10:10

  1. “In Numbers 10:10 it is recorded that the trumpet is to be blown to sanctify the new moon as a feast day. “At the beginnings of your months [H2320 chodesh] you shall offer a burnt offering to YaHuWaH: this is the burnt offering of each month throughout the months of the year. It shall be offered besides the continual burnt offering and its drink offering.” (Numbers 28:11-15 RSV) Moses called the people to an assembly on the new moon and spoke to them according to the commandments he had been given by YaHuWaH, exhorting them to faith and obedience.”

Really?

(Note again: Number 10:10 records ‘new month’ and not ‘new moon’.)

Psalms 81:3 and Numbers 10:10 Scrutinized

  • Psalms 81:3 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon month [H2320; renewal of 1st day of YaHuWaH’s month], in the time appointed [H3677; fullness], on our solemn feast day [H2282; every festival].
  • Psalms 81:3 must follow the Torah instructions given by Moses.
  • Numbers 10:10 Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months [H2320; not H3391 lunar month], ye shall blow with the trumpets…

Between Numbers 10:10 and Psalms 81:3 there is no mention of H3391 [yerach].

H3391 never qualifies any lunar phase to commence YaHuWaH’s feast months.

Psalms 81 and Numbers 10 do agree the moon does not begin the month!

The writings of Philo and Josephus do not align with Torah!

Misquotes stated as Truth (Nehemiah)

  1. “In the restoration of the law under Nehemiah the new moons were re-instituted and kept from that time through to the destruction of the Temple in 70 CE. Josephus records that they were kept during the entire Temple period and the High Priest attended in the Temple on the new moons and Sabbaths.”

Nehemiah? Really?

Misquotes stated as Truth (Solomon)

  1. “Moses commanded the keeping of the new moons. In 2 Chron 8:12-13 Solomon said that it, as well as the other feasts, were ‘an ordinance forever to Yisra’El.” (2 Chron 2:3-4)
  2. “As sincere followers of YaHuWaH’s word, we should be observing them [new moons] now and preparing ourselves as His Bride, fully adorned in all righteousness.”

The Bride observing new moons? Really?

Not Yahusha’s Bride!

Let’s remember the following:

Just because the Rabbis can be quoted, and just because the Talmud has written instruction on rules following the crescent moon … this is hardly a reason to accept the new moons as the beginning of the month.

Torah has priority! Impalement reveals the fulfillment!

Not the Rabbis or non-Jews of Revelation 2:9 and 3:9.

Moon Comments from Bible Dictionaries

Will any of these commentaries agree with Scripture or will they support the Talmud and the moon/month teachings?

Many commentaries recognize the fact that YaHuWaH’s people were easily influenced by the pagans that worshipped the moon. Take careful note of this history.

New Unger’s Bible Dictionary

  • The worship of the moon was extensively practiced by the nations of the East. Ur in lower Mesopotamia, Abraham’s birthplace, was an important center of the worship of Sin, the moon god, as was Haran in Upper Mesopotamia, where Abram and Terah emigrated. In Egypt, the moon was honored under the name Isis and was one of the only two deities that commanded the reverence of all the Egyptians. In Syria, the moon was represented by one of the Ashtaroth surnamed “Karnaim”, from the horns of the crescent moon by which she was distinguished. There are indications of the early introduction into the countries adjacent to Palestine of the species of worship distinct from any that we have described, namely, the direct homage of the heavenly bodies – sun, moon, and stars – characteristic of Sabianism. The first notice we have of this is in:

Job 31:26  if I have looked at the sun when it shines, or the moon moving in brightness,

Job 31:27  so that my heart has been secretly enticed, and my mouth has kissed my hand –

Job 31:28  that too is a punishable crookedness, for I would have denied Ěl above.

  • … and it is observable that one warning of Moses as found in Deut 4:19 … is directed against this nature worship rather than against the form of moon worship that the Yisraelites must have witnessed in Egypt. At a later period, however, the worship of the moon in its grosser form of idol worship was introduced from Syria.
  • In 2 Kings 23:5, we read that Josiah did away with those ‘who burned incense to Baal, to the sun, and to the moon’.
  • Except for a brief period under Josiah, Manasseh appears to have been the great patron of this form of idolatry, for he ‘worshipped all the host of heaven’ (21:3,5). From his reign down to the [Babylonian] captivity, moon worship continued to prevail among the Jews.

Date? About 624 BC – 18 years before Babylon arrives.

Nelson’s Illustrated Bible Dictionary

  • The moon had a special significance for the ancient Yisraelites. Their festival CALENDAR, which began each month with the rising of the new moon, was knows as a lunar calendar.
  • The accurate recording of the new moon as it arrived each month was important because the moon governed the dates for other religious festivals.
  • The Prophet Amos condemned Yisra’El’s merchants for their impatience with the interruption to business caused by the festival of the New Moon as seen in Amos 8:4-6. Date? About 787 BC.
  • Speaking through the Prophet Isaiah [1:13-15]… God [YaHuWaH] condemned the formal, but empty, observance of the new moon festival. Date? About 760 BC.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

  • The moon was very early worshipped by the nations of the Far East as a divinity or the representative of one or more deities.
  • This personification and worship of the moon among the nations who were neighbors to Palestine was but part of an elaborate Nature-worship found among these people. Nor was this worship always separated from Palestine by geographical lines. It crept into the thought and customs of the Hebrews and in a sense affected their religious conceptions and ceremonies. They fell into the habit of making direct homage to the sun, moon and stars.
  • The actual worship of the moon and the idolatry consequent thereon seems to have touched the Hebrews, though this is disputed by some. It would seem difficult to explain 2 Kings 21:3 [698 BC] upon any other supposition, and in 2 Kings 23:4-5 [624 BC] we have a clear statement that Josiah put down the worship of the moon among the people and silenced the priests of this form of worship.

Manasseh’s Abomination and Josiah’s Reformation

Fausset’s Bible Dictionary

  • MOON. Instead of [the moon] being regarded as a person and worshipped, as it was by the surrounding nations, in Scripture it is God’s creature ‘made for [prophetic] signs, [agricultural] seasons, days and years (Psalms 104:19).
  • The brightness of the moon in the East, guiding the traveler by night when the heat of the day is past, gives it a prominence which it has not with us (Psalms 8:3). In Psalms 89:37 however, the moon is not the ‘faithful witness’, but God is witness to His own oath; translated ‘and the witness [of God] in heaven is faithful’, so [also] Psalms 89:35 [refers to meaning YaHuWaH has sworn this truth by His holiness].
  • It [the moon] influences vegetable growth; Deut 33:14, ‘moon’, namely, its phases, others explain ‘months’ as the times of ripening fruits. [Note: These are ordinances of the moon.]

Verses for Fausset’s Comments

  • The moon was worshipped as Isis in Egypt; as Karnaim, ‘two horns’, of Ashtoreth, wife of Baal the king of heaven (the male and female symbolizing the generative powers of nature), in Syria; as Sin, ‘lord of the month’, in Babylon. Sabaism (from tsaabaa, the heavenly hosts) was the earliest of false worships; it appears in our pagan names Sun day, Mon (moon) day [Note: The quote continues with Job 31:26 and the problem of adoration of the moon.]
  • Josiah put down those who burned incense to the moon (2 Kings 23:5 [around 624 BC])
  • She was called ‘queen of heaven’ (Jer 7:18), though that may mean Venus Urania. ‘Cakes (cawaniym) round like her [moon] disc were offered to her.
  • So far from [the moon] being an object of worship, it [the moon] unconsciously worships its Maker (Psalms 148:3; 8:3).

[ https://222/bible-history.com/faussets/M/Moon/ ]

The following verse speaks of the moon praising YaHuWaH, not ‘man’ praising and worshipping the moon…

Psa 148:3  Praise Him, sun and moon; Praise Him, all you stars of light!

To Moon or Not to Moon!

Did any of the commentators place the moon in a position to receive sacred regard for YaHuWaH’s month commencement?

Questions to Ask and Thoughts to Ponder

We’ve traveled through a lot of material. Where do we go from here?

Concluding the Moon/Month Study

There are still some unanswered questions for this study.

Let’s ponder over some of them before we discover which ‘no god’ has the authority … not only in the Scriptures, but even with those desiring to worship YaHuWaH – today.

Day 1 of Creation!

  1. Is the 1st day of creation in the 1st month [Abib/spring] of i) the FESTAL year,

Or is the 1st day of creation in the 7th month [Tishri/fall] of ii) the CIVIL year?

Would that information affect the following questions?

  1. Is the 1st day of creation, also the 1st day of the month of the 1st year for this earth? (It’s not a trick question.)
  2. Remember, the ‘lights’ are brought forth on Day 4 of creation week.

The Moon – Then and Now

  1. Today our moon has NO light of its own – only reflected light from the sun. In fact, the moon never did have its own light. Consider this verse:

Jer 31:35  Thus said יהוה, who gives the sun for a light by day, and the laws of the moon and the stars for a light by night, who stirs up the sea, and its waves roar – יהוה of hosts is His Name.

Let’s re-arrange Jeremiah 31:35

Thus said YaHuWaH, who gives the sun for a light by day, and the stars for a light by night, the laws [ordinances] of the moon, [H3394 yareach] who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar…

When the verse is organized this way, it makes sense and aligns with Genesis 1:16 perfectly … because:

  • the stars have nothing to do with tides of the sea;
  • it is the moon that stabilizes the tidal activity;

Also the verse is very clear about the two lights given to the earth: the sun being the greater light-giver by day; the stars being the lesser light-givers by night. Consider Psalms 19:1-9.

Nothing at all can be found in Scripture about the moon being a ‘light-giver’.

Many ‘ifs’ to Consider

  1. The ‘lights’ are not found in the firmament until Day 4 of Creation. THEN: was the moon’s phase at conjunction, crescent or full moon in Genesis 1:14-18?
  2. Those that believe the festal month was supposed to start with the moon, would that have been on the 1st day of creation or the 4th day of Creation?
  3. IF the moon starts the 1st festal month of the 4th day of Creation, what happens to days 1, 2, and 3 of Creation? Are they now dead days?

Everyone should know which day of Creation is actually the 1st day of the 1st festal month!!

Is the following thought logical?

“In the first week of creation the moon began the first festal month on the 4th day.”

How could that be a Torah teaching?

Can Creation solve the problem?

  • The moon/month issue seems to have a huge problem with the creation account.
  • If the moon is to begin the festal months ‘today’ – then doesn’t the moon have to follow some kind of a pattern from the creation week in order to begin the creation festal month as well?
  • Do you think YaHuWaH’s restoration of the lights in the sky on DAY 4 was deliberate? Why not Day 3?
  • (Note the meaning of Psalms 104:30 You send forth Your Spirit, they are created; And You renew the face of the earth.)
  • Is it even possible for Day 4 to be the beginning of YaHuWaH’s first festal month?
  • If not, then does that mean the moon can never begin YaHuWaH’s festal months?

What about other arguments?

  1. Many say the moon was in conjunction for days 1, 2, and 3; then the crescent appeared on Day 4 of creation. How could that happen when there were no visible lights in the firmament until Day 4?
  2. Is it possible that a conjunction would last three full days on the first week of a perfect creation?
  3. Did the moon even have any phases?
  4. How many people can give confirmation about how the festal month begins by using only Genesis 1? Do they know there are 2 types of months beginning in the first week of creation?
  5. Or, do most of them default to Exodus 12 and the idea of a full moon of the 14th day to prove the 1st festal month began with the moon?

It’s the same old argument!

Most say Exodus 12 supports the 14th day as having a full moon for Pesach/Passover in the month of Abib, so the 1st day must be the new moon. HOW?

Where’s the Scriptural proof for this?

This is 2550 years after creation!

What about this thought?

There’s no need to look for a full moon at Pesach/Passover, because the moon has nothing to do with ushering in the festal months anyway!

What about another thought?

If the Pesach/Passover of Exodus 12 had a bright full moon, then why did the people need the ‘Pillar of Fire’ by night to guide their steps when they left Egypt for the next three days of travel into the wilderness?

There is a lot of light when traveling at night under the light of a full moon.

Could it be in Exodus 12, the next night of Abib 15 really was also a very dark night because:

  • the moon was not full, or …
  • it was in full conjunction?!

Question: Would YaHuWaH use a very dark night to emphasize His Glory cloud?

Full Moon on the 14th day of the month?

Where in the Scriptures is there even one witness that the 14th day of the 1st festal month must be attended with a full moon?

How are these conclusions found in the Torah?

Is it possible that what most feast keepers have been taught about the moon is NOTHING BUT A STRONG PAGAN TRADITIONAL BELIEF HANDED DOWN FROM THE RABBIS?

How did the Moon receive custody of the Festal Month?

A short review: Moon worship, or scared regard for the moon, along with sun worship has had a huge impact on YaHuWaH’s people all through the ages including many Feast Calendars tody. Here is a short review of what has been brought forth so far:

  1. In the Garden: The ‘fallen Lucifer’ was given sacred regard in the garden. From the old word ‘leuk’ the name Lucifer connects to the moon through the words ‘lunar and lunation. The moon is linked to worship of the moon goddess – especially in the Asherah [garden] groves and ‘high places’. Today, sacred regard is still being given to the moon through the moon-month commencement on the feast calendars.
  2. Adam to Noah: The patriarchs themselves remained relatively free from worship of other gods.
  3. After the Flood: Nimrod became the first sun god; Semiramis became the first moon goddess.
  4. Terah/Abraham: Called out of Ur of the Chaldees … an area of pagan sun god and moon goddess worship.
  5. Haran: Terah resides here … a center dedicated to moon goddess worship.
  6. Terah/Laban: Both were attached to their [teraphim] moon images, very likely a family business.
  7. Abraham: Yah’s patriarch ‘called out’ from moon worship, to reside in Canaan.
  8. Shechem Oak Tree: Jacob buries the family idols that Rachel stole from her father. These ‘teraphim’ moon images link to Terah.
  9. Egypt: Great multitude of pagan Egyptians (and their gods), leave with Moses.
  10. Mt Sinai: Sacred regard is given to the pagan gods including the moon goddess through the altar and golden calf in this moon worshipping area, the Wilderness of Sin. Before Moses died he gave strict instructions in Deut 4 and 17 to NOT look to and/or worship the [gods of the] sun, moon, stars, etc. Remember: the moon goddess altar is still standing today.
  11. Jericho: Joshua was commanded to destroy this moon worshipping city before settling in Canaan.
  12. Shechem Commitment: Joshua encouraged the people to put away their family idols of sun and moon gods.
  13. Tanakh history: Ashtoreth moon goddess worship was a huge problem in the groves and high places for both Yisra’El and Judah.
  14. Hezekiah: Sundial miracle had a direct effect on moving the moon out of its 30-day orbit as YaHuWaH tried to move His people away from the pagan ways of moon goddess worship.
  15. Return from Babylon: Judah’s exiles incorporated the Babylonian sun and moon components into YaHuWaH’s calendar. For most: sunset begins the day; the crescent moon commences the month!
  16. Today: The majority of Feast calendars all honor the sunset for ‘day-start’, but even more serious they honor a variety of moon sightings for ‘month-start’ when nothing is documented in Scripture for this. The moon component in these feast calendars gives honor to Lucifer’s moon goddess.

Are Christian Churches Today Connected to Pagan Worship?

  • Sunday Christians: all honor their day of worship on ‘Sunday’ – giving homage to the ‘sun god’ from ages past.
  • Sabbath Keepers: all honor the commencement of their worship days beginning with the sunset the night before Sabbath, paying homage to the ‘sun god’ from ages past.
  • Sabbath Keepers/most Feast Keepers: In addition to honoring sunset, most also honor the moon for the festal ‘month-start’, thus paying homage to the ‘goddess of the moon’.

Which of the 3 groups is most deceived by Jewish mindset?

More on the Moon Component

Does the full moon have a connection to the crystal ball?

Who is being worshipped?

The moon goddess?

Really … Who is being worshipped?

Remember ‘To Moon or Not to Moon’ Part 4: Lunar – Lunation – Leuk – Lux – Lucifer!

According to the Jews, the moon always begins the festal month!

The moon is part of their calendar as with the pagans!

And most of the feast keepers wander after the (RE)NEW(ED) MOON REPORT.

More on the Sun Component

Most people know the sun has been worshipped by every pagan nation including every aspect of imperial and Papal Rome to this very day!

Who is actually being worshipped?

Yet, according to the Jews, the sun governs the Sabbath commencement!

The sun is part of their calendar as with the pagans!

And most of the Sabbath-keepers wander after the …!

Yes, the Jews had (and have) ‘a Hebrew (?) calendar.

However, it is NOT YaHuWaH’s Hebrew Eternal Calendar!

Their Jewish calendar simply hides the sun god and moon goddess even today!

Do the patterns of history repeat from the Tanakh up to today?

It’s time to firmly answer this question: Which ‘no god’ will gain the authority?

… the sun god?

… or the moon goddess?

Will the Scriptures offer any clues?

It’s time to Expose the ‘no god’ in authority!

Record of 216no gods´

Tanakh entries for:

  1. Sun god worship (Baal/Baalim) = 87 (or 40%)
  2. Moon goddess worship (Ashtoreth; Queen of heaven; high places and groves) = 129! (or 60%)

In the Tanakh, the moon goddess has greater authority over the sun god! It is still the same today!

The Moon has been Exposed!

But is it …

A Lunar Deception?

A Lunatic Authority?!

… or both?!

Review ofno gods

Tanakh entries for:

  1. Sun god worship (Baal/Baalim) = 87 (40%)
  2. Moon goddess worship (Ashtoreth; Queen of heaven; high places and groves) = 129! (60%)

The moon goddess has greater authority over the sun god!

Walk in the Light

Eph 5:8  For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Master. Walk as children of light –

Eph 5:11  And have no fellowship with the fruitless works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

The moon is a burden from the pagans with unscriptural endorsement.

Let it go!

These Questions Should Now Have Answers!

  1. Where did sun and moon worship really begin?
  2. Were the patriarchs between Adam and Noah responsible for promoting worship of ‘no gods’?
  3. Do the sun god and moon goddess represent the major ‘no gods’ or are there other more important pagan gods?
  4. If the sighting of the sun and moon are part of the worship calendar, is that action regarded as worship?
  5. If sacred regard, and/or allegiance of any kind, is given to the sun and moon for any season, is this classed as worship?
  6. Did this study conclude which ‘no god’ is more deceptive in the festal calendar? Sun god … or moon goddess?
  7. The Tanakh indicates the moon goddess had much more sway and authority over YaHuWaH’s people! Surprised?

This question should not have to be asked anymore!

When is New Moon Day?

A New Thought for Eternal Calendar

Psa 90:12  Teach us to number our days, And let us bring the heart to wisdom.

LEARN TO COUNT!

Arthur Schopenhauer – All truth passes through three stages:

1st It is ridiculed.

2nd It is violently opposed.

3rd It is accepted as being self-evident!

What are your thoughts on the ‘moon goddess’ having priority in most feast calendars?

Did Judah hide their ‘no gods’ in their calendar?

How will you answer calendar accusers?

  • The answers are only found in the word of YaHuWaH.
  • With a complete Eternal Calendar study each one should be able to say with King Dawid in Psalms 119:

Psa 119:100  I understand more than the aged, For I have [studied and] observed Your orders.

Psa 119:42  So that I answer my reprover, For I have trusted in Your word.

Psa 119:105  Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.

Psa 119:89  Forever, O יהוה, Your word stands firm in the heavens.

Will you join Yahusha and the Great Patriarchs of YaHuWaH to restore the Eternal Calendar?

Is it Time to Leave Doubt Behind?

  • There are many people searching for YaHuWaH’s Eternal Calendar. The complete moon/month study shows beyond a shadow of any doubt that the moon is not involved with the calculation for the month commencement of YaHuWaH’s annual feasts and festivals. The moon/month is connected to the agricultural ordinances to bless this earth and mankind – a very important mandate for us.
  • Satan will use every possible method to detail our sacred regard redirecting it – for the moonwhere it does not belong.
  • Yisra’El and Judah persistently gravitated toward the pagan feasts over YaHuWaH’s worship statutes. Their allegiance was CONTINUOUSLY surrendered to a ‘created. (Rom 1:25) Sadly their …
  • … allegiance was never delivered permanently to THEIR CREATOR!
  • It was their sacred regard for the moon [goddess] that affected their feast calendar the most – very nearly separating them from YaHuWaH completely. (Isa 1:15)
  • The moon goddess is still given sacred regard today, by having the authority to appoint the moon as the commencement of the Festal month or a weekly Sabbath.

That should be nothing new under the sun!

  • Definitely, there is no doubt the sunset ‘day-start’ is also a very serious matter. BUT …
  • What about the commencement of the Tequfah in Genesis 1?

Some questions you might want to consider when moving forward in your quest for truth about the calendar:

#1 Does YaHuWaH operate on a year format that must be continuously re-calculated, re-adjusted, and manipulated according to man’s belief systems?

#2 Does YaHuWaH operate on an established year with a set pattern that duplicates automatically from within itself?

#3 Does this same year format reveal the format established at creation where identities procreated by the seed within itself – ‘produce after like kind’?

#4 Would this type of format accurately detail eternity?
