(((Shabbat Shalom!))) to ALL MANKIND, especially the precious few who keep 'THE SCRIPTURAL METHOD' for determining Full Moon Rosh Chodesh and 7th Day Sabbath!
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!!!
Why is this important?
Because Sabbath observance is commanded in The 4th Commandment...
“Remember the Sabbath day, to set it apart." (Exodus 20:8 The Scriptures 2009)
"Guard the Sabbath day, to set it apart, as יהוה your Elohim commanded you." (Deuteronomy 5:12 The Scriptures 2009)
Furthermore, Yahuah has instructed us to keep His Sabbath as 'a sign' between Him and His people in both Exodus 31:13 and Ezekiel 20:12 and 20.
“And you, speak to the children of Yisra’ěl, saying, ‘My Sabbaths you are to guard, by all means, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, to know that I, יהוה, am setting you apart." (Exodus 31:13 The Scriptures 2009)
“And I also gave them My Sabbaths, to be a sign between them and Me, to know that I am יהוה who sets them apart." (Ezekiel 20:12 The Scriptures 2009)
And set apart My Sabbaths, and they shall be a sign between Me and you, to know that I am יהוה your Elohim.’ (Ezekiel 20:20 The Scriptures 2009)
Be sure to understand that in Ezekiel 20 Yahuah is speaking judgment to Israel of old for having profaned His Sabbaths and that He is also prophesying of an 'end times' generation of Israel that will return to The Promised Land via The Greater Exodus and enter into judgment with Him there. In that judgment there will be rebels who are not allowed to enter into The Promised Land even though they have participated in The Greater Exodus. But, there will also be those who are judged to be keeping the commandments and therefore the true 7th Day Sabbath of Yahuah and those faithful and obedient ones are received into The Promised Land as their inheritance!
The 7th Day Sabbath of Scripture reckoned from the Full New Moon constitutes the MARK OF YAH! whereas the 7th Day Saturday (Saturn's Day) of the Gregorian Calendar constitutes the 'end times' MARK OF THE BEAST!!! This must be taken very seriously, it is no small matter!
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 know and 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 now 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!
"According to 'THE SCRIPTURAL METHOD' for determining Full Moon Rosh Chodesh and 7th Day Sabbath, today, the 16th of July, is actually the 22nd Day of the 4th New Moon of Scripture and therefore the 3rd Sabbath of the 4 Month of Scripture! Today is also the 43rd 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, which is Verdigre, Nebraska in the U.S.A. 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! The foundation of what you need to know is right there! All other Scriptural calendar resource exegesis must align itself with clear, unambiguous conclusions drawn from GENESIS 1!
Much like the gathering of waters from the face of the earth into the ocean via small streams, each flowing into one 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 Yahusha draws ALL MANKIND to Himself and we will worship in Unity, Spirit and Truth!
Today I'll share with you an article I wrote a few years back that challenges the traditional count toward Shavuot. Tradition has it that Moses received the two tablets of stone upon which The 10 Commandments were written on the same day that Shavuot would have fallen... can that be true if the count toward Shavuot is merely seven weeks plus one day long? Or is there more to the story? Don't pass this eye opener up... may YAH bless as you study to show yourself approved!

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.” ’
