The Nazarene's Way
Sameach Rosh Chodesh #4!
Updated: Nov 20, 2021
(((HAPPY NEW MOON DAY #4!))) to the PRECIOUS FEW who keep >>>'THE SCRIPTURAL METHOD'<<< for determining Full Moon Rosh Chodesh!
Yes, that's right, I said, "THE SCRIPTURAL METHOD"!!!
This can only be accomplished by understanding the definition of the word 'ôth which YHWH used as He spoke about THE TWO GREAT LIGHTS in Genesis 1:14, "let them be for signs..." ~ 'ôth H226, 'signs' (in the sense of appearing)!!! Both the Sun and the Full Moon make their 'appearance' above and send their 'signs' from the eastern horizon!!!
With respect to those who believe otherwise I "QUALIFY" my greeting as a matter of personal faith based upon years of humble, open minded, Berean-like study of the Scriptures resulting in my belief that YHWH has provided every foundational detail required for us to keep His, New Moon Days, Sabbaths and Annual Moedim according to what He inspired Moses to write in Genesis 1 alone!
Let us earnestly contend for the true dates of YHWH's Moedim (Appointed Times) for He says...
“My being hates your New moons and your appointed times..." "Come now, and let us reason together,” says יהוה. (Isaiah 1:14a & 16a The Scriptures 2009)
Father I pray, "Pour out Your Ruach HaQodesh upon us, help us to set aside our filthy pride and give us a heart's desire to be set-apart in Your Moedim, open our eyes to see Your ways, which You've recorded in Your written WORD, that we may worship You in Spirit and Truth on the 'actual' dates YOU command!"
I refer to "THE SCRIPTURAL METHOD" I use to mark Rosh Chodesh, from which the Sabbaths and Annual Moedim of YHWH are numbered, as...
"The self-evident, 'GENESIS 1 DECREED', observational method for Full Moon Rosh Chodesh reckoning!"
Last night, June 24th, the Full Moon 'appeared' over the Eastern Horizon AFTER the Sun had set below the Western Horizon, thereby sending 'the sign' that the following day would be Rosh Chodesh at any given location where this occurred.
According to 'THE SCRIPTURAL METHOD', today, the 25th of June, is actually the 1st Day of the 4th New Moon and therefore Rosh Chodesh #4! Rosh Chodesh is a 'day of worship', buying or selling and working for pay are postponed for the day. Today is also the 22nd Day of our 50-day count toward the Summer festival of Shavuot!
The timing of the announcement of the date listed above is according to "THE SCRIPTURAL METHOD" I use and is for my location. This same sunrise/sunset date may arrive at your location either before or after it arrives at my location depending upon whether you're located either east or west of me and the ever dynamic, self-correcting motions of the sun and moon along with the earth's rotation upon its axis in THE MASTER'S CLOCK possibly leading you to keep a different date, either a day before or after, on the Gregorian calendar than I do.
If you are mindful of calendar issues within the faith and hold to a different 'opinion', use a different 'method' and observe different 'conclusions', I bid you "Shalom!" but I encourage you to take another look at GENESIS 1! Everything you need to know is right there! Set all other resources aside and draw your conclusions from GENESIS 1!
Much like the gathering of waters from the face of the earth into the ocean via small streams flowing one into another, eventually becoming mighty rivers, which are inextricably drawn to the sea, so we too will one day meet as one body of one faith on the actual dates of YHWH's Moedim via an exercised humility as Messiah Yeshua draws ALL MANKIND to Himself and we will worship in Unity, Spirit and Truth!
Today I'll share with you an article titled 'Shavuot The Summer Festival'. This article makes the case for a count toward Shavuot that begins on the day of First Fruits (16th Day of the 1st New Moon) and counts 7 Sabbaths Complete and THEN counts 50 days to complete the count ending near the end of the 4th New Moon on either the 28th or 29th day. I both encourage and challenge you to give this article a Berean like hearing, there is a blessing waiting for you if you do!
Aaron's Blessing (Hebrew OT)
Num 6:22 וידבר יהוה אל־משׁה לאמר׃
Num 6:23 דבר אל־אהרן ואל־בניו לאמר כה תברכו את־בני ישׂראל אמור להם׃
Num 6:24 יברכך יהוה וישׁמרך׃
Num 6:25 יאר יהוה פניו אליך ויחנך׃
Num 6:26 ישׂא יהוה פניו אליך וישׂם לך שׁלום׃ Num 6:27 ושׂמו את־שׁמי על־בני ישׂראל ואני אברכם׃
Aaron's Blessing (The Scriptures 2009)
Num 6:22 And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,
Num 6:23 “Speak to Aharon and his sons, saying, ‘This is how you bless the children of Yisra’ěl. Say to them:
Num 6:24 “יהוה bless you and guard you;
Num 6:25 יהוה make His face shine upon you, and show favour to you;
Num 6:26 יהוה lift up His face upon you, and give you peace.” ’
Num 6:27 “Thus they shall put My Name on the children of Yisra’ěl, and I Myself shall bless them.”
