Woman Standing On The Moon (Revelation 12:1)

Is the Message of the Moon as taught to us for eons of time dating back to Jericho –

  1. A Profound Foundation from YaHuWaH?


  1. False Doctrine from Ba’al?

Pertinent Questions

Will the Bride of YaHuWaH, standing on the moon in Revelation 12:1, provide a true foundation for determining YaHuWaH’s Appointed times (Moedim) –

  • By leaning upon the popular teachings of many prominent leaders? In other words…
  • Will the Bride of YaHuWaH give allegiance to the popular teachings that are rooted and centered upon the moon for the purpose of determining YaHuWaH’s Appointed Times?


Will Revelation 12:1 instruct us that the message of the moon has been OVERCOME AND SOUNDLY DEFEATED, by appearing to be TRAMPLED UNDERFOOT by the Bride of Yahusha at the end of time?

Does Revelation 12:1 point us to the actual visual event within the Mazzaroth?

When compared to the authentic Tequfah mandate established by our Creator, will this Constellation reveal the true authority of the moon in terms of YaHuWaH’s Moedim Cycles?

And a GREAT SIGN was seen in the heavens:

Would a SIGN (Gen 1:14) seen within the Mazzaroth of the heavens, be worthy of consideration by the Bride of Yahusha?

Will people searching The Word before it occurs SHEMA?

What if this GREAT SIGN was highly specific of an absolute condition describing Yahusha’s chosen people near the closing period of time on this earth?

A Sign – Gives a strong indication to the context!

And a great sign was seen in the shamayim: a woman clad with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.

The woman described here is none other than Bethula the Bride of Yahusha. Let’s look into the description of her glory.

Of Great Significance!

Rev 12:1 (a) “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven…”

John attributed very high importance to the event he was about to describe. It was a “GREAT WONDER”!

It was something to behold for all the generations to follow him.

What captivated John’s mind?  Each detail of this SIGN/WONDER must be considered as a highly important revelation of truth.

Bethula’s Exaltation!

Rev 12:1 (b) “… a woman clothed with the sun …”

This speaks directly of Bethula the Virgin constellation – one of the 12 constellations within the Mazzaroth.

Bethula occurs in this descriptive format, late in September of the Gregorian calendar. It is an actual celestial event that can be observed in the heavens.

What, and Who, provides Bethula with an aura of glory?

Bethula has been clothed/covered with the LIGHT of the sun. The LIGHT of the sun portrays everything which gives the Virgin Bride of Yahusha her magnificent glory.

As the sun sets in the western sky and the residual sunlight is still present, the constellation of Bethula appears in the eastern sky. She is enveloped with the light from the sun.

This is her eternal splendor.

The next part of the verse is very important.

Rev 12:1 (c)  “… and the moon under her feet …”

Question: Does this text solidly indicate that Bethula is standing on the moon, as a foundational platform for her existence?

The Moon Under Bethula’s Feet

In the autumn the full moon shows itself under the feet of Bethula, but not every year. This occurs only 1 out of 3 years. In the constellations, the moon is not touching the feet of Bethula and does not portray her as using it as a secure foundation for her platform.

Yes, the full moon is near her feet; a short distance away.

We are going to explore this factor very soon.

First, we will consider the entire verse.

Rev 12:1 (d) “… and upon her head a crown of twelve stars …”

One star per month; Is the 13th star A.W.O.L.?

12 Stars in her Crown = 12 CONSTELLATIONS. One for each month! See Rev 22:2.

What {and WHY} does the lunar-based calendar require? Answer: A 13th month!

Why is there no mention of the 13th month in the Scriptures to correct the lunar calendar after it has digressed astray from the seasons?

Returning to – the position of the moon

Rev 12:1 (c) “… and the moon under her feet …”

The question is: Why is the moon, which has been deemed and taught by man to be the divine authority for determining time, located under the feet of the woman of Revelation 12:1?

Do the Scriptures provide any information about this “under the feet” positioning?

Before we go further, please allow me to submit to you that – Being AT the foot of Yahusha exposes an entirely different context than Being UNDER THE FOOT of Yahusha!

These are two entirely different concepts. Please avoid confusing them as being similar.


1. POWER OF AUTHORITY? OR …                            


For an answer, we need to look at Scriptural examples regarding “positioning”.

Gen 24:2  And Aḇraham said to the oldest servant of his house, who ruled over all that he had, “Please, put your hand under my thigh,

Gen 47:29  And the time for Yisra’ĕl to die drew near, and he called his son Yosĕph and said to him, “Now if I have found favor in your eyes, please put your hand under my thigh, and show kindness and truth to me. Please do not bury me in Mitsrayim,

These “under” positions are not displaying power and strength. They are positions of voluntary submission to a superior authority.

Under The Feet

Is there power, control, and authority exuding from under these feet?

2Ki 9:33  And he said, “Throw her down.” And they threw her down, and some of her blood spattered on the wall and on the horses, and he trampled her underfoot. (Jezebel eaten by dogs.)

Isa 14:25  That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders. 

The Assyrian authority was/will be stripped from them and will be placed where?

Under the feet!

A Mighty Nation That Tramples – (underfoot)

Isa 18:7  In that time a present shall be brought to YaHuWaH of hosts from a people tall and smooth-skinned, and from a people awesome from their beginning onward – a nation mighty and trampling, whose land the rivers have divided – to the place of the Name of YaHuWaH of hosts, to Mount Tsiyon.

To – trample – is to crush with force. Trampling produces a crushed and defeated product – not a production of a platform for ruling authority.

Being “underfoot” in this example has produced an effective elimination of authority. The mighty nation conquers over the deficient entities.

Under Foot And Crushed!

Jer 12:10  “Many shepherds have destroyed My vineyard, they have trodden My portion underfoot, they have made My pleasant portion become a deserted wilderness.

Lam 1:15 YaHuWaH hath trodden under foot all my mighty men in the midst of me: he hath called an assembly against me to crush my young men: YaHuWaH hath trodden the virgin, the daughter of Judah, as in a winepress

Dan 8:13  Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot

Is there any authority from – under the foot?

Mat 5:13  Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt has lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men

Heb 10:29  Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of YaHuWaH, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? 

Rev 11:2  But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. 

Rev 12:1 – “… moon under her feet …”

These are some very clear Scriptural indications of authority being purposely located under the feet.

Under the feet is NOT a position of power and authority as man has taught us. Neither does the moon have any authority by being located under the feet of the Bride of Yahusha in Rev 12.

The Bride of Yahusha, in Rev 12:1, is NOT portraying a picture of the Bride as incorporating the lunar-based system of worship for praising YaHuWaH!

Quite the contrary.  The moon, being under the feet, is a sign of the moon involuntarily relinquishing power and authority!

Yes, the moon in Rev 12:1 is portrayed as having NO authority whatsoever.

Joseph’s Oppression:  Under the foot of Potiphar!

Gen 39:20  Then Yosĕph’s master [Potiphar] took him and put him into the prison, a place where the sovereign’s prisoners were confined. And he was there in the prison.

Joseph no longer ruled Potiphar’s household from prison? Joseph was oppressed by Potiphar and definitely under the foot of Potiphar.

What position was given to Joseph as second in command under Pharaoh?

Joseph’s Authority: The Second Chariot of Pharaoh!

Gen 41:42  And Pharaoh took his seal-ring off his hand and put it on Yosĕph’s hand. And he dressed him in garments of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck.

Gen 41:43  And he had him ride in the second chariot which he had. And they cried out before him, “Bow the knee!” And he set him over all the land of Mitsrayim.

Joseph is no longer under the foot of anyone, but has been elevated to the position of Pharaoh’s “second in command.”

Joseph did not rule Mitzrayim (Egypt) from a position of oppression – that of being at the bottom.

Joseph was given glory and honor which was displayed when he rode in the second chariot of the Pharaoh – and ELEVATED position!

YaHuWaH provided for Joseph, the top ruling position available in the land.

His authority was recognized from being exalted – not from being placed under the foot.”

The opposite was true when Joseph was placed in prison by Potiphar, a position of under Potiphar’s foot.” At that moment Joseph’s authority over the immediate house of Potiphar was vanquished instantly. (However: remember in short order, Joseph was elevated to a position of authority under the prison guard.)

YaHuWaH Expresses His Thoughts

What does our Creator and Father proclaim about His thoughts on man’s acclaimed authority given to the moon?

Isa 1:12  “When you come to appear before Me, who has required this from your hand, to trample My courtyards?

Does – trampling – produce an authority which is – underfoot”?

Expressed Contempt

Isa 1:13  “Stop bringing futile offerings, incense, it is an abomination to Me. New Moons, Sabbaths, the calling of meetings – I am unable to bear unrighteousness and assembly.

The Hebrew nation was certainly observing all the Sabbaths, Appointed Times, and Festivals. What made YaHuWaH express His emphatic contempt for the way the Yisraelites were worshipping Him? What and Why?

Isa 1:14 “My being hates your New Moons and your appointed times, they are a trouble to Me, I am weary of bearing them.

Why were these appointed times declared – “YOUR new moons and YOUR appointed times”?

Why does YaHuWaH DISTANCE HIMSELF and REJECT the worship of the Yisraelites if they were observing His Sabbaths, Feasts, and Festivals?

What characteristic has the Yisraelites incorporated into their worship system that caused YaHuWaH to vehemently LOATH the worship of the Hebrew nation?

Isa 1:15 “And when you spread out your hands, I hide my eyes from you; even though you make many prayers, I do not hear. Your hands have become filled with blood.

What pagan worship practice caused YaHuWaH to reject their worship?

Isa 1:16 “Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; put away the evil of your doings from before my eyes. Stop doing evil!

What evil was being practiced by the Yisraelites in their observance of the Sabbaths, Feasts and Festivals?”

Amo 5:21 “I have hated, I have despised your festivals, and I am not pleased with your assemblies.

YaHuWaH gives clear commands in the Torah for the observation of the Sabbaths and Feast assemblies. Is it possible that YaHuWaH HATED the pagan lunar traditions that had been silently infused into their observance of His Set-Apart Appointed Times?

We have been taught to treat all of these texts as speed bumps before a stop sign. Oh yes, we realize an uncomfortable feeling, it arouses us from our sleepiness. It warns us of possible doom!

But, like some drivers, people do not take the SIGNS seriously. They continue driving by traditional design, through the warning signs provided by YaHuWaH. They continue merrily along their way – completely oblivious to the warning signs provided TO SAVE OUR VERY LIFE.


When learning to drive a vehicle, EXTREME importance is commanded towards the condition required upon seeing this SIGN!

A certain action for a performed condition is required to preserve life!


What is it? YaHuWaH tells us unequivocally that the moon is NOT TO GUIDE OUR WORSHIP ALLEGIANCE!

YaHuWaH destroyed Jericho and placed a curse on the one who rebuilds the city. Have we granted enough attention to this?

Or will we regard the event but ignore the greater significance?

The Hebrew language reveals a deeper understanding that the curse is placed upon the ones who REBUILD THE WORSHIP PRACTICES OF THE MOON! 

Yahusha’s Words

Mat 5:20  “For I say to you, that unless your righteousness EXCEEDS that of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall by no means enter into the reign of the heavens.

What were the Pharisees and the leadership of the 2nd Temple doing?

Were they observing APPOINTED TIMES and seasons according to the moon?

Have you read in the Qumran scrolls how the Zadokite priests living there fully documented and emphatically despised the usurped priesthood?


Lunar Deception Trampled!

In Revelation 12:1 the Bride Bethula is illuminated by the LIGHT of the sun! The LIGHT of the Son provides the glory.

The moon is not provided any light of glory whatsoever!

The Bride of Yahusha has victoriously debased the pagan moon traditions. The lunar traditions are of no value because the Bride of Yahusha has RISEN ABOVE AND TRAMPLED the FALSE DECEPTION of the MOON for DETERMINING the FEASTS and FESTIVALS.


Mazzaroth based Appointed Times

Isa 2:1  The word that Yeshayahu the son of Amots saw concerning Yehuḏah and Yerushalayim:

Isa 2:2  And it shall be in the latter days that the mountain [The Moedim] of the House of יהוה is established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills. And all nations shall flow to it.

Question: What is it about the mountain – the Moedim – that will be RE-ESTABLISHED in the latter days, IF they were already established when Yahusha was living on the earth?

What is inclusive with YaHuWaH’s Moedim that will be RE-ESTABLISHED toward the end times?

Isa 58:12  And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. 

Important! The Eternal Calendar of YaHuWaH has zero lunar connections. It is NOT a luni/solar calendar but is a fully LIGHT-BASED calendar!

  • If the Mazzaroth LIGHT-BASED calendar is to be re-established toward the end of time – WHAT TYPE OF CALENDAR WAS IN OPERATION while Yahusha was living on the earth?
  • The study – Yahusha’s Contempt For The Lunar Based Calendar – exposes Yahusha directly addressing calendar issued through witnessing while living on this earth.

What about this possibility?

WHAT IF Isaiah was prophesying of the imminent victory of the Bride (See Rev 12:1), pertaining to the latter days, close to the end of the 6000 years of allotted earthly time?

And WHAT IF Isaiah is forecasting that the lunar calendar will be replaced and the Moedim (Appointed Times) will once again be RESTORED and be centered on the Eternal Calendar?

YaHuWaH HATES the lunar calendar because it is based upon the infusion of false, pagan, lunar traditions on His Moedim (Appointed Times).

Please read this verse again!

Isa 2:2  And it shall be in the latter days that the mountain [The Moedim] of the House of יהוה is established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills. And all nations shall flow to it.

Recognition of Old Paths – RESTORED!

Questions about the re-establishment of “Old Paths’ to dwell in (Jeremiah 6:16):

  1. Can Isaiah be speaking about the Light-based Moedim (Appointed Times) which are forever to be determined by the Statutes of YaHuWaH?
  2. Is Jeremiah prophesying of an imminent correction that will be made to man’s traditions, which are HATED by YaHuWaH? (Reference Isaiah 1:11-16.)

Isa 2:3  And many peoples shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain [Moedim] of יהוה, to the House of the Elohim of Yaʽaqoḇ, and let Him teach us His WAYS [Celestial/Light-based timing], and let us walk in His PATHS [the Mazzaroth based circuits], for out of Tsiyon comes forth the Torah and the Word of יהוה from Yerushalayim.”

Mountain = Moedim? Is there a connection?

  • Is there an acceptable Scriptural example to show a direct connection from MOUNTAIN (hei resh) to the MOEDIM (Set-Apart Appointed Times)?

What was the original statement from the Dragon?

What was his ultimate desire and intent?

It was to usurp the worship (of man) intended for YaHuWaH to himself.

Where is this found?

Isa 14:13  “For you have said in your heart, ‘Let me go up to the heavens, let me raise my throne above the stars of Ěl, and let me sit in the MOUNT OF MEETING [“er” – Moedim] on the sides of the north;

The Mountain/Moed Connection

Hei Resh – “er” (har) is mountain – an elevated item, ranging from earth protrusion, to pregnancy, something raised up above other surrounding identities. {“er” is from the Interlinear Scripture Analyzer. In pregnancy the tummy is raised up from the body.}

This mountain in Isaiah 2:2 is referencing the comprehensive foundation of eternal life based on righteousness within the statues – The Moedim – of YaHuWaH.

This (elevated above all else), Qodesh (Set-Apart) cyclical yearly schedule of worship-oriented assemblies, has a direct connection in the Hebrew language to the “OLD PATHS” as seen in Jeremiah.

The re-establishing confirmed

Jer 6:16  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. But they said, ‘We do not walk in it.’

Isa 58:12  “And those from among you shall build the old waste places. You shall raise up the foundations of many generations. And you would be called the Repairer of the Breach, the Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.

Old Paths?

Is Noah’s documentary old enough to consider his ways as an example from the Torah, that we may walk accordingly?

Did Noah count according to the lunar system and smudge the documentation to hide the truth?

Did Noah accurately record his epic voyage according to the Mazzaroth Light-based calendar exactly as the dates and numbers of days were exposed in the story?

What – OLD PATHS – would Jeremiah have us restore and follow?

Back to Isaiah 2 – where is it?

Isa 2:4  And He shall judge between the nations, and shall reprove many peoples. And they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither teach battle anymore.

Isa 2:5  O house of Yaʽaqoḇ, come and let us walk in the LIGHT of יהוה.

Is this instruction from Isaiah to walk according to the “LIGHT – OF THE MOON”?

Where is the LIGHT?

Isaiah continues:

Isa 2:6  For You have forsaken Your people, the house of Yaʽaqoḇ, because they have been filled from the East, and practice magic like the Philistines, and they are pleased with the children of foreigners.

Filled with pagan traditions from people not interested in following YaHuWaH!

Isa 2:7  And their land is filled with silver and gold, and there is no end to their treasures. And their land is filled with horses, and there is no end to their chariots.

Isa 2:8  And their land is filled with idols; they bow themselves to the work of their own hands, to what their own fingers have made.

They choose to worship the Ba’als of the pagan religions including following the human manufactured lunar traditions of the same pagan people. This is why YaHuWaH hates and utterly despises the lunar-based calendar and its traditional assemblies.

Yisra’El and moon worship?

Once again it is very clear that Yisra’El was directly involved with moon worship in the vicinity of 5000 years ago. Scripture declares it and history documents it. Yahusha directly opposed moon worship while He was living on the earth.

The Qumran scrolls record the evil of the lunar-based calendar insidiously overtaking the Eternal Calendar worship services during the Hasmonean period just before Yahusha came to this earth.

Isaiah forecasts about the Mountain of YaHuWaH (the Moedim) being re-established in the latter times.

What then could possibly be replacing this present lunar-based Moedim (Appointed Times) that YaHuWaH so vehemently abhorred?

Could it be that the Bride of Yahusha (Bethula of the Mazzaroth – found in Revelation 12:1) is presently OVERCOMING and will be VICTORIOUS, defeating the false lunar system of worship?

Could it be The Bride {YaHuWaH’s people} will cause ALLEGIANCE TO THE MOON to be TRAMPLED UNDERFOOT in the latter days?

Could it be YaHuWaH’s Word actually declares a reality?

Yahusha’s Words

Mat 11:30  “For My yoke is gentle and My burden is light.”

Yahusha spoke these words while on earth in the time that the lunar-based system of darkness was prevailing. In the 2nd Temple era, moon-based worship proceedings from the Hasmonean period were the protocol of the imposter priesthood.

When Yahusha spoke the word – light – was He simply referencing an issue of weight? Maybe, on the surface level. However, in a deeper look, He was referencing the Mazzaroth LIGHT-based calendar which RE-ESTABLISHES the Moedim back onto His Eternal Calendar.

When Yahusha witnessed the evil proceedings of the 2nd Temple lunar-based worship system – IS IT ANY WONDER THAT HIS BURDEN [Matthew 11:30] WOULD BE THE RETURN [Teshuva] TO THE MAZZAROTH LIGHT BASED ETERNAL CALENDAR?

Paul addresses his brothers in the faith –

1Th 5:4  But you, brothers, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.

They understood the Eternal Calendar as witnessed to in James 1:17. When the lunar system removes the key to understanding (Luke 11:52) by offsetting the Moedim (Appointed Times) onto a calendar other than that of YaHuWaH’s – darkness then prevails. At that point, one is enveloped in darkness and cannot know the truths of YaHuWaH, and cannot discern the Set-Apart “times.”

Yahusha’s return will then come as a complete surprise, as will also the Day of Atonement!

1Th 5:5  For you are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.

The moral?  LOOK TO THE LIGHT, not the darkness of the moon!

This last statement sounds so simplistic that it is almost silly!

1Co 1:27  But Elohim has chosen the foolish matters of the world to put to shame the wise, and Elohim has chosen the weak of the world to put to shame the strong.

YaHuWaH is highly efficient in simplicity. It is man that insists on fouling things up with his own theories.

Question: Why do you think the moon is positioned under the feet of Bethula – the Bride of Yahusha?

  • Man does not need a physical representation before him to “bow down to a foreign god”!
  • “Bowing down” may consist of simply paying allegiance to whatever false system is chosen and by walking after it; which results in giving one’s respect (or sacred regard) to that very practice.

Isa 3:12  “My people! Youths exert pressure on them, and women rule over them. O My people! Your leaders lead you astray, and swallow the way of your paths.”

Isa 9:16  For the leaders of this people lead them astray, and those who are guided by them are swallowed up.

Isaiah has just written to us about how much YaHuWaH despises the pagan traditions involving the moon.

Look how clear Isaiah states it here. Involving the moon, for your determinations of moeds, IS AGAINST THE WILL OF YAHUWAH!

Isa 3:8  For Yerushalayim has stumbled, and Yehuḏah has fallen, because their tongue and their doings are against יהוה, to provoke the eyes of His esteem.

The Jericho Fortress Connection

Yod Resh Yod Chet Waw wjyry = Yericho

City of the Moon (Gesenius) (Joshua 2:1-3)

Moon – H3394 = Yareach jry

  • This is a “family word!” Do you see the similarities?
  • Jericho was the central axis of moon worship indoctrination.
  • The fortress walls of Jericho protected the center of moon worship at that time.
  • What were Joshua’s commands concerning the City of the Moon?

Jos 6:2  And יהוה said to Yehoshua, “See! I have given Yericḥo and its sovereign, mighty brave men, into your hand.

Jos 6:3  “And you shall go around the city, all the men of battle going around the city once. Do this for six days.

Jos 6:4  “And let seven priests bear seven rams’ horns before the ark, and on the seventh day go around the city seven times while the priests blow the horns.

How many times in total did Joshua encompass the Fortress of the Moon? 6?  7?  12?  13?

One encompassing march, once per day for 6 days, and 7 rotations around the city on the 7th day makes for a total of 13 times!

What happened on the 13th march around the City of the Moon?

The Lunar Based Obstacle which opposed YaHuWaH in bringing His people into the Promised Land was not only defeated, but eliminated. The foundations of the lunar-based worship system were removed so that they did not impede the workers of YaHuWaH in accomplishing His plan to bring His people into the Promised Land.

Where were the foundations of lunar worship positioned?

Jos 6:20  And the people shouted when the priests blew the horns. And it came to be when the people heard the sound of the horn, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat. And the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they captured the city.

It seems that by Hebrew definitions the walls fell into the ground. There was no mound of rubble for an obstacle to hinder or restrict the Army of YaHuWaH!

All resistance in terms of accomplishing the goal of rapidly entering the city of the moon was eliminated by YaHuWaH!

The foundations of moon worship were literally placed – Under the Feet – to be trampled upon by the Hebrew army which was commanded to destroy the City of the Moon.

YaHuWaH has provided sufficient resource tools to correctly discern the evils of moon worship and just why He Banished the Moon to Under the Feet of His Bride.

The big question now lies with us! Will we grasp the opportunity, accepting YaHuWaH’s offer to enter the Promised Land under His Plan? Will we pay close attention to the Words of the Scriptures and SHEMA [listen and act accordingly]? Or will the same choice be made as the Hebrew nation when they sent spies into the Promised Land AND FAILED TO TRUST THEIR CREATOR? This time, the sentence for failure to trust and obey is a fair bit longer than 40 years. It is now – Eternity!

Some last thoughts to ponder

Will there be a HUGE PROBLEM determining time in the future?

Isa 60:20  “No longer does your sun go down, nor your moon withdraw itself, for יהוה shall be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended.

The moon will no longer withdraw itself? That means no longer changing phases, for it is the withdrawing process which changes the phases of the moon.

This will make it very difficult observing worship practices of YaHuWaH “from New Moon to New Moon” (Isa 66:23) when a “New Moon” will be an impossibility!

What and How!

Isa 66:23  “And it shall be that from New Moon to New Moon, and from Sabbath to Sabbath, all flesh shall come to worship before Me,” declares יהוה.

Did not Isaiah just inform us in chapter 60:20 that the moon will no longer withdraw itself thus eliminating the phases of the moon forever?

How can Isaiah first tell us that the moon will no longer go through the phases creating the renewing of the moon, and then just a few chapters later, tell us that we will be worshipping according to the “NEW MOON”?


Why is this a problem?

First and Foremost: The term – “New Moon” does not exist in the original Hebrew manuscript. “New Moon” exists only because of (mis)translators opinions!

Second: A most definite problem because a “New Moon” can only occur as new if it withdraws and “renews” itself! Therefore, according to Isaiah 60:3, there will not be any “New Moons” in heaven! Neither will there be phases of the moon!

If one chooses to accept the lunar-based path, it will seem that Isaiah is a very confused man with a totally opposed and equally confusing {and contaminated} message.

Worshiping by the new moon which will not exist?

This would be incredible confusion in heaven!

It would also be: Babylon’s moon confusing message in its purest form.

Who is the author of confusion?

Sadly, if one chooses the lunar-based method of worship, then a devastating decision must be made concerning the opposing messages seen in Isaiah.

We can be extremely thankful to YaHuWaH that He gives us another option revealed throughout the Scriptures!

The Keys to Understanding timing issues are:

  1. The Tequfah &
  2. Learning to Count!

Clarification for “NEW MOON”

The word – chodesh – (the renewing/the rebuilding) as seen in the Tanakh (Old Testament), has been (mis)translated as – new moon – in our copies of the Scriptures.

This contamination in translation does NOT CORRECTLY REFLECT the true definition extracted from the original Hebrew manuscript.

It is a false translation derived from the time the Metonic Cycle (the 29.5-day lunar month) was infused into the 2nd Temple worship services of the Hasmonean period, just before Yahusha lived here.

The word – chodeshhas absolutely zero connection to the moon.

Chodesh (the renewing/the rebuilding, in its basic form), when applied to TIME, has direct reference to the first cycle, or (day) of the month.

It is the desire of the Dragon to connect his first day of the month with the lunar ideals of his own making. When one examines closely in our personal research resources, one will find that the moon has but an INFERRED CONNECTION ONLY!

Starting with the Torah we have ultra-clear instruction to the non-existence of the lunar calendar in YaHuWaH’s Kingdom.

Jeremiah’s Wisdom

Jer 8:2  and shall spread them before the sun and the moon and all the host of the heavens, which they have loved and which they have served and AFTER WHICH THEY HAVE WALKED, which they have sought, and to which they have bowed themselves. They shall not be gathered nor buried, they shall be for dung on the face of the earth.

Amos’ Wisdom

Amo 5:21  “I have HATED, I have despised your festivals, and I am not pleased with your assemblies.

What reason did YaHuWaH supply to inspire Amos to record this incredulous statement of His SEVERE DISPLEASURE?

Amo 5:25  “You brought Me slaughterings and meal offerings in the wilderness for forty years, O house of Yisra’ĕl,

Amo 5:26  but you took up Sikkuth [Moloch] your sovereign and [the star] Kiyyun, your idols, your astral mighty ones, which you made for yourselves! (Acts 7:43).

Isaiah’s very direct message:

Isaiah 1:5 (b) You continue in apostasy.

Isaiah then begins to document (Isa 1:10-17) the traditions that insidiously infiltrated and contaminated the worship services of the Hebrew nation.

Paying allegiance to the Moon as a guiding identity is the TOP ALARM OF THE LIST!

Rom 6:16  Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves servants for obedience, you are servants of the one whom you obey, whether of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness?

What about Psalm 81, what are your thoughts on that?

    Shalom beloved Tikvah, if you go and read the series ‘To Moon Or Not To Moon’ you will see where Psalms 81 is mentioned and explained. Here is a link – https://rymcovenant.net/category/to-moon-or-not-to-moon/. 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: Jeremiah 31:35! There is a lot of calendar language in the Scriptures. If only everyone knew what to look for. The moon is designated for agricultural seasons and the tides and was never ordained to start a day or a month or a year or to be used for worship. YaHuWaH’s calendar is fixed and kicks off with the tequfah (spring equinox). We are so glad that you and Michael are on board with this knowledge and it makes us happy to see more and more people learning these truths also. We look forward to sharing much more as we learn.

Michael has a question, what do we do with Moshe being hidden for 3 yareach in Sh’mot 1 or 2, Psalm 81, what are your thoughts? We tend to lean toward the tekufah

Does your understanding of the calendar coincide with Covenant Calendar Club? I tend to be a visual learner instead of mostly reading. If you don’t agree with their calendar, would you share wit me the points you differ with?

    Shalom beloved Aime, we study with Tim and Charlene. We agree 100% with their findings about Calendar. We, however, do not agree with their teaching on Book of the Covenant Book of the Law. All the information on Calendar on our blog is a reproduction of their teachings that we have been a part of. Much love and shalom, Ron and Marlize!
