To Moon or not to Moon Part 4

‘The Moonth! Oh the Moonth?’

Eternal Calendar gets to work!

The Covenant of the Calendar was given on the 1st day of Creation starting out with the Covenant of the Day and Covenant of the Night (Jer 33:20-25).

  • Foundation: It’s all about understanding the word evening <ereb> H6153.

The Eternal Calendar is a very important covenant given first before the covenants of the:

  • ‘midst of the week’
  • Marriage on Day 6
  • Sabbath of Day 7
  • The Covenant of Calendar was designed to bring (and keep) any/all individuals in a full covenant relationship with their Creator forever.
  • The Eternal Calendar is fully capable of exposing the darkness of ALL counterfeit calendars removing all doubt so YaHuWaH’s people can know when to meet with Him on His ‘appointed times’.

This study is part of the Grand Finale Exposure for H3391 <yerach> (lunar cycle).

Remember: the base of this calendar study is all about ‘EVENING’ and it is about time! (pun intended)

The Moonth! Oh the Moonth?

Our questions:  Oh Moon!

  1. Are you the master of counterfeit calendars?
  2. Does creation serve you?
  3. Or do you serve creation?

The 2nd part of H3391 <yerach> (verb) [primitive root of H3394 <yareach> (noun)] will be studied in this lesson.

H3391 <yerach> will be examined as the verb/action component of the moon.

Question:

Will H3391 <yerach> be able to qualify for the commencement of YaHuWaH’s set-apart month?

#1 Creation Patterns

PERFECTION

DEVASTATION

RESTORATION

A Scriptural Pattern and the Moon

This Pattern has many repetitions:

  • Perfection – Devastation – Restoration

Examples for this pattern:

  1. First day of Creation
  2. Adam and Eve
  3. YaHuWaH’s people and their disobedience
  4. Creation Moon; Hezekiah’s miracle altered the moon cycle 3300 years after creation; moon will be restored in the new Earth.

#2 Creation Months

1st DAY BEGINS SCRIPTURAL MONTH

4th DAY BEGINS LUNAR MONTH

#3 Lunar Months

(aside from Creation Week)

SIDEREAL MONTH: 27.3 DAYS

SYNODIC MONTH: 29.5 DAYS

YaHuWaH’s Special Significant Numbers

The Scriptures speak of some very special numbers which are significant for YaHuWaH’s purposes. Some examples are:

1                 2                 3                 4                 7                 10               12               24               30               42                   50              

 70          100             120             400             430             490             1000           and             144,000

Consider these numbers: 27.3 and 29.5

Are they part of YaHuWaH’s numbering system?

Attention all ‘moon’ calendars!

When is New Moon Day?

Rabbi’s Festal Lunar Month

Which month is their true lunar month?

  1. Sidereal Month
  2. Synodic Month

Most feast calendars that use the moon month – mark the new moon day according to a particular moon phase, not the completion of the Sidereal Month cycle.

What is your answer to this question?

  1. When did YaHuWaH change His mind and give His people a ‘new’ set-apart month with 27.3 days, or 29.5 days/month?
  2. Answer – Neither 27.3 or 29.5 fit the requirements to be part of YaHuWaH’s numbering system.

Why?  Because of the 19 year cycle known as Metonic.

What does that mean?

Meton, a Greek astronomer, introduced the Metonic cycle around 432 BC (7 of the 19 years had 13 months). The Babylonians had already been utilizing the same 19-year cycle calendar since the 6th century BC.

Lunar Roots of the Jewish Calendar

  • The Jews adopted the Babylonian calendar dates from the period of their Babylonian Exile in the 6th century BC.
  • This 19-year lunar cycle became known as the Metonic cycle and was the basis for the Greek calendar until the Roman Julian calendar was introduced in 46 BC.

This calendar has deep roots in several pagan nations all requiring a 13th month.

Back to the Moon…

Because the full moon reigns in the sky all night long for only one night each lunar month…

The moon has nothing to do with the separation of the day and night seasons! But…

H3391 Phases of the Moon <yerach>

Can the phases of the moon separate or rule YaHuWaH’s festal month?

Will H3391 provide answers?

  • It depends on who you ask!
  • It depends on ‘which’ phase!
  • It depends on Hebrew definitions!

Taking a closer look

[#2] H3391 MOON <yerach> verb

This means: the cycle or lunation of the moon – labeled as a month. References found: Strong’s: 2, Englishman’s: 13!

Englishman’s Concordance H3391

#4 Beings of Light

YAHUWAH IS LIGHT

LUCIFER IS GIVEN LIGHT

What about ‘LIGHT’ in YaHuWaH?

The Creator, Who is LIGHT and created light, dwells in unapproachable LIGHT!

“which in His own seasons He shall reveal – the blessed and only Ruler, the Sovereign of sovereigns and Master of masters, who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or is able to see, to whom be respect and everlasting might. Amĕn.” Timotiyos Aleph (1 Timothy) 6:15-16

“And this is the message which we have heard from Him and announce to you, that Elohim is light and in Him is no darkness at all.” Yoḥanan Aleph (1 John) 1:5

What about ‘Light’ in Lucifer?

There is a sense of brightness around Lucifer.

O Hĕlĕl (Lucifer), son of the morning” Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 14:12

LuciferH1966; heylel; from H1984 (in the sense of brightness); the morning-star: KJV – Lucifer (the king of Babylon).

  • H1984 halal; a primitive root; to be clear (orig. of sound, but usually of color); to shine hence, to make a show, to boast; and thus to be clamorously foolish; to rave; causatively, to celebrate; also to stultify.

Who gave ‘who’ ‘light’?

Soon we will see how these concepts connect to ‘leuk’.

The Creator is LIGHT!

Lucifer means light, brightness…

The Creator is the Only One that can give Lucifer his light and brightness.

#5 Definitions: Moon

LUNATION

LUNAR

LEUK [INTRODUCTION]

Understanding H3391

  • H3394: is the root word for the set of family words between H3391-H3394.

Note:

  1. The definition of the root word is the most important.
  2. The 1st definition of H3391 is: lunation [for the cycle] – not ‘moon’ and not ‘month’.
  3. ‘Lunation’ is always linked to the ‘moon’.
  4. The sun and stars have cycles, but they are not called ‘lunations’.

Understanding ‘Lunation’

From: The Heritage Illustrated Dictionary of the English Language

  • Lunation: The time elapsing between two successive new moons, averaging 29 days, 12 hrs., 44 min., 28 sec.

Defines a Synodic Month

Understanding ‘Lunar’

From: The Heritage Illustrated Dictionary of the English Language

  • Lunar: of, involving, caused by, or affecting the moon. Measured by the revolution [cycle] of the moon: a lunar month; a lunar year. [The it says:] See leuk- in Appendix.*

The word ‘leuk’ will be examined shortly.

Understanding ‘leuk’s’ connection to Lunar

  • Note: ‘Leuk’ is connected to both ‘lunar’ [literal moon] and ‘lunation’ [moon’s cycle].

The MOON has no ‘light’ of its own. (Remember Isaiah 30:10 re: ‘masculine moon’.) The sun gives the moon its brightness.

But, the moon has always had its own lunar cycle since creation. This cycle began with a perfect 30-day length.

Question:

Was it YaHuWaH’s purpose to allow Sidereal and Synodic months of different lengths?

Has YaHuWaH designed a ‘built-in’ test for every religious calendar?

#6 Lucifer and Leuk

THIS SECTION MAY HAVE A HUGE SURPRISE!

In this next section, we will examine what the definitions of ‘lunation’ and ‘lunar’ have to do with ‘leuk’.

Understanding ‘Leuk’s’ connection to Lunar

Reminder: ‘Leuk’ is connected to ‘lunar’ [the literal moon] and ‘lunation’ [the moon’s cycle].

Definition for “Leuk’ [from ‘lunar’]

From the Appendix:

The Heritage Illustrated Dictionary of the English Language

Note: In Latin, ‘leuk’ connects both Lucifer [lux] and Moon [lunar] to the Synodic month!

Understanding ‘Leuk’s’ connection to Lucifer

The Heritage Illustrated Dictionary of the English Language

Leuk – (comes from the words lunar and lunation) meaning ‘light’ or ‘brightness’. In Latin the word ‘leuk’ is lux, meaning Lucifer! Lucifer and the Moon connect through the words: Light, Whiteness, and Brightness!

Lucifer’s loss of perfection

Lucifer rebelled! Refusing to repent, he was cast out of heaven and become the ruler of darkness of this world and the dark prince of the air. His new serpent names: Satan and Devil. He will never again be an angel of light even though he can make it appear that way (2 Cor 11:14).

‘Leuk’ Comparisons of Lucifer to the Moon

Lucifer had no ‘light’. His light came from the ‘S-o-n’.

The MOON has no ‘light’. (Isaiah 13:10) The moon’s light is a reflection from the s-u-n.

Is there a connection between these two statements?

Review of Leuk definition (note the comparisons for Leuk!)

Leuk – The suffixed form in Old English is light:

  1. In Latin, light = Lucifer.
  2. Suffixed form of lumen in Latin = luminous; illuminate.
  3. Suffixed form of luna in Latin = moon: lunar, lunate, lunatic, …etc.!

An investigation on ‘luna’ will follow shortly.

What does all of this have to do with H3391’s ‘lunation cycle’ and H3394’s ‘literal moon’?

Moon = lunar, lunation, leuk and [borrowed] brightness.

Is the MOON connected to Satan through ‘darkness’?

Lucifer’s light came from ‘the Son’.

The moon is dark until it receives light reflected from the sun.

A thought to ponder:

Does it sound like this lunar lunation [cycle] would have the authority to commence YaHuWaH’s set-apart months and yearly worship statutes?  Will ‘Luna’ know?

Scriptural ‘Luna’ Comparisons

Luna Family Words (G4582; G4583):

  • G4583 seleniazomai; middle voice or passive from a presumed derivative of G4582; to be moon-struck, i.e. crazy: KJV – to be a lunatic.
  • G4582 selene; from selas (brilliancy; probably akin to the alternate of G138, through the idea of attractiveness); the moon.

LUNATIC

“And news about Him went out into all Suria. And they brought to Him all who were sick, afflicted with various diseases and pains, and those who were demon-possessed, and epileptics [lunatics], and paralytics. And He healed them.” Mattithyahu (Matthew) 4:24

“Master, have compassion on my son, for he is an epileptic [lunatic] and suffers badly, for he often falls into the fire and often into the water.” Mattithyahu (Matthew) 17:15

(moon goddess Selene)

Mystic ‘Luna’ Comparisons

‘Luna’ (Roman mythology) the goddess of the Moon; counterpart of Greek Selene.

Are Luna and Selene involved with YaHuWaH’s festal months?

#7 Definitions: Family Words

H3391 – H3394 (LUNATION CYCLE AND LITERAL MOON)

H3399 – H3405 (CONTENTION AND FALL OF JERICHO)

Comparing definitions of Hebrew Family Words

  1. H3391 – H3394 (verb and noun)
  2. Between H3399 and H3405

(descriptive definitions leading up to Jericho, the moon worshipping city)

Will there be another connection between the lunar/moon and Lucifer/Satan?

Understanding H3391

  • H3391: is the root word for the set of family words between H3391-H3394.

Note:

  1. The definition of the root word is the most important.
  2. The 1st definition of H3391 is: lunation [or the cycle] – not ‘moon’ and not ‘month’.
  3. ‘Lunation’ is always linked to the ‘moon’.
  4. The sun and stars have cycles, not ‘lunations’.

A comparison of Family Words

H3391 MOON <yerach> is the primitive root of H3392, H3393 and H3394 MOON <yareach>.

  • H3392: yerach; name of an Arabian patriarch.
  • H3393: yerach (Aramaic): for 12 months; or Adar the 12th
  • Note: These last two Hebrew words are connecting to the ‘moon’ family words of <yerach> and <yareach>. (Remember this for the study on H2320)

Family Words After H3394

  • H3399: hurl; turn over
  • H3400: thrown of YaHuWaH
  • H3401: contentious; adversary
  • H3402: same as H3401, a name meaning contentious
  • H3403: from H3401; contend
  • H3404: from H3384; to throw
  • H3405: from H3394; Jericho (a contentious city)

Note: General definitions give the picture of ‘something contentious and being thrown over, like Jericho, the moon worshipping city’.

‘Leuk’ Connects the Family Words

  1. H3391 – H3394 meanings:

Lunation, literal moon, and leuk [leuk = Lucifer, Lucifer, and the moon both had borrowed brightness/whiteness]

  1. H3399 – H3405 meanings

Very contentious and adversarial [like Lucifer] – needing to be thrown down like Jericho.

Lucifer and Jericho Cast Down

  1. H3391 and H3394: The meanings of lunation and the literal moon connect to leuk. Leuk connects to Lucifer – he was cast down from heaven.
  2. H3399 – H3405: The meanings of contention linking to Jericho, as a contentious adversary and moon worshipping city. Jericho has to be thrown over before Joshua entered further into Canaan.
  • End-time Application: Before entering the Heavenly Canaan, all sacred regard for the moon to command worship statutes must be cast down – or placed ‘under the foot’ (Rev 12:1).

What is wrong with this picture?

The ‘moon’ has been cast down!  The ‘moon’ is not in charge of calculating the Feast Days of YaHuWaH. The moon is ‘under the foot’!

Wiccans and Moon Worship

The moon’s ordained job description is for special agricultural ordinances to bless the earth and mankind. Pagans have always worshipped the moon!

Who has the authority to change YaHuWaH’s mandate for the moon to commence festal months? Luna? Selene? Satan?

#8 H3391 Scriptures

11 SCRIPTURES USE MONTH

2 SCRIPTURES USE MOON

H3391 in ‘13’ Scriptures

H3391 is used two times, translated as moon. H3391 is used 11 times, translated as month; three times a pagan month is named.
YaHuWaH’s festal month has 30 days. The moon/month has a lunation cycle of 27.3 days.
YaHuWaH’s month renews and rebuilds after 30 days. For 3300 years the moon was renewed after 30 days – but not anymore! (H2320 will explain this point in detail)

H3391 ‘month’ Verses from Englishman’s

  • Strong’s lists only 2 Scriptures for H3391 using the word moon. (Deut 33.14 [ a verse on agricultural ordinances]; Isaiah 60:20)
  • Englishman’s lists the following 11 Scriptures for H3391 using the word month.
  1. Exo 2:2 ‘three months’
  2. Deut 21:13 ‘a full month’
  3. 1 Kings 6:37 ‘month of Ziw’
  4. 1 Kings 6:38 ‘8th month of Bul’
  5. 1 Kings 8:2 ‘month of Eythanim’
  6. 2 Kings 15:13 ‘a full month’
  7. Job 3:6 ‘number of months’
  8. Job 7:3 ‘months of vanity’
  9. Job 29:2 ‘number of months’
  10. Zech 11:8 ‘in one month’

Will any of these verses commence the month?

H3391 <yerach> as MONTH / 30 days

“And the woman conceived and bore a son. And she saw that he was a lovely child, and she hid him three months.” Shemoth (Exodus) 2:2 [These patterns of 30 days would be counted by lunation cycle]

“and put aside the mantle of her captivity, and shall dwell in your house, and mourn her father and her mother a month of days. And after that you shall go in to her and be her husband, and she shall be your wife.” Deḇarim (Deuteronomy) 21:13 [To be addressed in detail soon]

“In the fourth year the foundation of the House of יהוה was laid, in the month Ziw.” Melaḵim Aleph (1 Kings) 6:37 [Name of month]

“And in the eleventh year, in the month Bul, the eighth month, the house was completed in all its matters and according to all its plans. Thus he built it for seven years.” Melaḵim Aleph (1 Kings) 6:38 [Name of month]

“And all the men of Yisra’ĕl assembled to Sovereign Shelomoh at the festival in the month of Ěythanim, which is the seventh month.” Melaḵim Aleph (1 Kings) 8:2 [Name of month]

H3391 <yerach> as MONTH / __ days?

“Shallum son of Yaḇĕsh began to reign in the thirty-ninth year of Uzziyah, the sovereign of Yehuḏah. And he reigned a month of days [30 days] in Shomeron.” Melaḵim Bĕt (2 Kings) 15:13 [772 BC]

“That night – let darkness seize it. Let it not be included among the days of the year, let it not come into the number of the months.” Iyoḇ (Job) 3:6 [1520 BC]

“so am I allotted months of futility. And nights of trouble have been appointed to me.” Iyoḇ (Job) 7:3

“Oh, that I were as in months past, as in the days when Eloah protected me;” Iyoḇ (Job) 29:2

“Do you number the months they complete? Or do you know the time when they bear young?”

Iyoḇ (Job) 39:2 [Fertility cycles]

“Then I sent off the three [verse 17 idol/false] shepherds in one month, for my being despised them, and their being also loathed me.” Zeḵaryah (Zechariah) 11:8 [487 BC]

H3391 <yerach> as MOON (ONLY 2 References)

#1 AN AGRICULTURE REFERENCE to the MOON’s lunation cycle (an action)

  • “with the choice fruits of the sun, with the choice yield of the months [moon’s lunation cycle],” Deḇarim (Deuteronomy) 33:14

#2 A PROPHETIC REFERENCE TO the MOON’s lunation cycle (an action)

  • “No longer does your sun go down, nor your MOON [H3391] withdraw itself [moon’s lunation cycle], for יהוה shall be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended.” Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 60:20

Note: Between these two [H3391] verses only one is a Torah reference using ‘moon’. Question: Is the context for Deut 33:

  1. The beginning of the month with a lunar cycle?
  2. The beginning of the month on the 1st day of a set-apart month?
  3. Or neither?

The Lunar Month (a Review)

  • The Lunar month [H3391] was designed for agricultural ordinances.
  • However the ordinances of the lunar month were exchanged by sinful man and substituted for the commencement of pagan worship statutes; giving homage to the pagan moon god.
  • After the sundial event [700 BC] the lunation cycle changed from 30 days/month to an average of 27.3 [Sidereal] days/month. The Metonic Cycle stretched the lunar month to about 29.5 [Synodic] days/month! [This is from ‘phase to phase’ which extends beyond the completed cycle]
  • When H3391 is used it is usually connected to the moon’s original creation week lunar month of 30 days.
  • At creation, both types of months had 30 days each.

How can we know for sure?

#9 Puzzle Solving

DEUTERONOMY 21:13

NUMBERS 10:10

PSALMS 81:3

Now that we know….

  • H3391 has the ‘verb/action’ meaning of the moon’s cycle;
  • The moon month from creation also started out with 30 days;
  • Lunar and lunation connect to the words Lucifer and moon.

We are now ready to examine the next point.

Question:

Does H3391 as the ‘moon month’ ever refer to YaHuWaH’s 30 day creation month? Why?

Because the Englishman’s Concordance lists H3391 as ‘month’ [rather than moon’s lunation] in Deut 21:13. Let’s examine this tricky problem.

Are these Scriptures Synonymous?

“Blow a shophar in the New Moon [H2320], in the covering for the day of our festival.” Tehillim (Psalms) 81:3

“And in the day of your gladness, and in your appointed times, and at the beginning of the month [H2320], you shall blow the trumpets over your ascending offerings and over your slaughterings of peace offerings. And they shall be a remembrance for you before your Elohim. I am יהוה your Elohim.” Bemiḏbar (Numbers) 10:10

“and put aside the mantle of her captivity, and shall dwell in your house, and mourn her father and her mother a month of days [H3391]. And after that you shall go in to her and be her husband, and she shall be your wife.” Deḇarim (Deuteronomy) 21:13

Do these 3 Scriptures support the ‘[new] moon-month’ being in alignment with YaHuWaH’s set-apart month?

Scrutinizing Deut 21:13

  • This Torah verse is often used to prove that a lunar month is identical to YaHuWaH’s original set-apart H2320 month for feast worship statutes.

“and put aside the mantle of her captivity, and shall dwell in your house, and mourn her father and her mother a month of days [H3391]. And after that you shall go in to her and be her husband, and she shall be your wife.” Deḇarim (Deuteronomy) 21:13

  • When a maiden was taken into captivity she was allowed one month to mourn for her family.
  • Captivity could occur on any day of either YaHuWaH’s set-apart month, or the moon/month.
  • It would be easy for the pagan maiden to calculate the full 30 days by following the H3391 lunar cycle from sliver to sliver; one full moon to the next; or any phase in between. H3391 is the best choice for the context.

YaHuWaH’s Regard for the Pagan Captive

  • When Yisra’El raided the pagan nations, taking captive maids, it would be very unusual for the maidens to not already follow the moon cycle system of counting.
  • YaHuWaH was very sympathetic towards captured maidens. They were to receive every Torah benefit.
  • In this way she could confidently count out her rightful days of mourning [through the moon phases] before being subjected to her captor, before her allotted time.
  • Later, the captives would learn of YaHuWaH’s worship Eternal Calendar.
  1. A) Comparing Num 10:10 to Deut 21:13
Num 10:10 (Torah) Deut 21:13 (Torah)
And in the day of your gladness, and in your appointed times, and at the beginning of the month [H2320] and put aside the mantle of her captivity, and shall dwell in your house, and mourn her father and her mother a month of days [H3391]

Both months of H2320 and H3391 appear to be synonyms.

#1 Puzzle Solving: Num 10 and Deut 21

Num 10:10 (Torah) Deut 21:13 (Torah)
The wording is given as ‘blow the trumpet at the beginning of the month [H2320] The wording is given as ‘a full lunar month [H3391] for mourning of captivity.

Both Numbers 10 and Deuteronomy 21 are referring to very different months.

Num. [trumpet] ‘month’ = H2320 – the ‘renewing’ month of YaHuWaH with roots in Day 1 of Creation. Deut. [captivity] ‘month’ = H3391 – the lunation month of YaHuWaH with roots in Day 4 of Creation.

Num 10 and Deut 21 do NOT fit together!

YaHuWaH’s H2320 month is never the same as the H3391 Lunar month.

  1. B) Comparing Num 10:10 to Psa 81:3
Num 10:10 (Torah) Psalms 81:3 (non-Torah)
And in the day of your gladness, and in your appointed times, and at the beginning of the month [H2320] Blow a shophar in the New Moon [H2320], in the covering for the day of our festival.

‘new month’ and ‘new moon’ both appear to be synonyms. Are they?

A closer look at Num 10:10 and Psa 81:3

Num 10:10 and Psa 81:3 give instructions for when the trumpets are blown. The context is not about one specific time on one specific day!

They were to blow the trumpets at these times:

  1. On the 1st day of every new month [H2320] (for counting worship statutes);
  2. At the fullness of the solemn set-apart feast days – when they are fully come;
  3. On every feast day during the feast weeks.

Will Numbers 10 and Psalms 81 agree to fit together?

#2 Puzzle Solving: Num 10 and Psa 81

Num 10:10 (Torah) Psa 81:3 (non-Torah)
The working is given as ‘beginning of your month’ ‘month’ = H2320 The wording is given as ‘new moon’ [H2320] ‘moon’ should be ‘month

Both Num 10 and Psa 81 are referring to the same H2320 ‘set-apart month’ of 30 days, or YaHuWaH’s month that began on the 1st day of creation. The months of Psalms and Numbers are not linked to the moon.

Scrutinizing Psalms 81:3 and Numbers 10:10

  • “Blow a shophar in the new moon month [H2320; renewal of 1st day of YaHuWaH’s month], in the covering for the day [H3677; fullness] of our festival [H2282; every festival].” Tehillim (Psalms) 81:3
  • Psa 81:3 must follow the Torah instructions given by Moses.
  • “And in the day of your gladness, and in your appointed times, and at the beginning of the month [H2320; not H3391 lunar month]

Between Psa 81:3 and Num 10:10 there is no mention of H3391.

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

Psalms 81 and Numbers 10 do agree! This puzzle is solved!

H3391 Final Conclusion <yerach>

  • Deut 33:14 is the very first H3391 Torah reference that aligns with a moon/month of 30 days (as are 11 of the 13 verses)
  • For 3300 years the ‘moon/month’ had 30 days in its cycle (which began its commencement on the 4th day of creation week).
  • Not one H3391 moon/month reference gives instruction to commence YaHuWaH’s set-apart month.
  • Only 2 references use the word MOON instead of MONTH referring to the agricultural or prophetic aspect of the MOON.
  • However, not one of the <13> H3391 verses lends any support for the set-apart month to commence with any phase of the MOON in the sky.

H3391 MOON does not commence YaHuWaH’s Festal month.

H3391 means the actual lunation or ‘cycle of the moon’ in any ‘moon month’.

Up until the sundial event the moon month and set-apart month both had 30 days. But, they did NOT commence on the same day!

A thought to ponder

Some say YaHuWaH changes the ‘times’ and ‘seasons’.  Does He? And if so, what does this mean for His Eternal Calendar?

“And He changes the times [H5732] and the seasons [H2166]. He removes sovereigns and raises up sovereigns. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who possess understanding.” Dani’ĕl (Daniel) 2:21  Why?

Definition: ‘times’ [H5732]

  • Times H5732; ‘iddan (Aramaic); from a root corresponding to that of H5708; a set time; technically, a year; KJV – time.
    • H5708 ‘ed; from an unused root meaning to set a period [compare H5710, H5749]; the menstrual flux (as periodically); by implication (in plural) soiling: KJV – filthy.

How did YaHuWaH change any ‘times’ to become soiled/filthy?

Answers to our questions

Oh Moon!

  1. Are you the master of counterfeit calendars?

Yes, every calendar that uses any phase of the moon!

  1. Does creation serve you?

Yes, every new moon day and the 13th month!

  1. Or do you serve creation?

Yes, Deut 33.14 ..and for the precious things put forth by the moon (ordinances of H3391 <yerach>)

Back to our original question.

Can the phases of the moon separate or rule YaHuWaH’s Festal months? NO! The Hebrew H3391 <yerach> does not allow this option!

Question:

Does the ‘moon’ begin the ‘month’?
