Lunar Sabbath

The false doctrines of the Lunar Sabbath.

Nowhere in the scripture are we commanded to change the cycle of the week. the doctrine is erroneous and has come about because there is not the true love for YAHWEH and HIS Truth (emit).   See the booklet The Lunar Shabbat Doctrine Exposed.

Lunar Sabbath? or 7th Day Sabbath?

There is a new teaching on the internet and radio that says, that we are to keep the Sabbath by the moon.  That at every new moon, a new week begins.  There is no place in the books of YAHWEH's scripture, that says we are to start our week with the new moon. It does say that we are to keep the feasts of YAHWEH by the new moon. Also YAHWEH did not make the moon on the first day but the forth day.

 

Genesis 1; 1-31

1 In the beginning YAHWEH created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of YAHWEH moved upon the face of the waters.
3 And YAHWEH said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 And YAHWEH saw the light, that it was good: and YAHWEH divided the light from the darkness.
5 And YAHWEH called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
6 And YAHWEH said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
7 And YAHWEH made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
8 And YAHWEH called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
9 And YAHWEH said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
10 And YAHWEH called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and YAHWEH saw that it was good.
11 And YAHWEH said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and YAHWEH saw that it was good.
13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.
14 And YAHWEH said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: (note: the sun does the dividing of the season and the day and night, not the moon.)
15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
16 And YAHWEH made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
17 And YAHWEH set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness:
and YAHWEH saw that it was good.
19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
20 And YAHWEH said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
21 And YAHWEH created great whales, and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and YAHWEH saw that it was good.
22 And YAHWEH blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
24 And YAHWEH said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
25 And YAHWEH made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and YAHWEH saw that it was good.
26 And YAHWEH said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.
27 So YAHWEH created man in his own image, in the image of YAHWEH created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And YAHWEH blessed them, and YAHWEH said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.
29 And YAHWEH said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
31 And YAHWEH saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Genesis 2; 1-3

1. Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
2. And on the seventh day YAHWEH ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
3. And YAHWEH blessed the (seventh day,) and (sanctified it:) because that in it he had (rested) from all his work which YAHWEH created and made.
 

Nowhere in the scripture are we commanded to change the cycle of the week. the doctrine is erroneous and has come about because there is not the true love for YAHWEH and HIS Truth (emit).

TESLONIQYAH -2- THESSALONIANS 2:8-12
8 And then shall that wicked be revealed, whom Master YAHSHUA shall consume with the Ruach of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the Truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause YAHWEH shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the Truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
 

Again I ask this, why did YAHSHUA not tell the Jews that they were keeping the wrong day as the Sabbath if they were keeping it wrong?  He YAHSHUA sure did meet with them (the Jews) on their Sabbath lots of times.  He sure did talk to them about the Sabbath day.  So why didn't he tell them, they were keeping the wrong day then?

 

YAHSHUA The Passover Lamb and the two Sabbaths

We can also look at YAHSHUA's death the passover lamb of YAHWEH to see what day the Sabbath is and if it is a Lunar Sabbath. We know that He was cut off in the middle of the week and that He was taken down before the Sabbath. Now which Sabbath was that? It was the Shabbat of the Feast of Unleavened Bread if it was in the middle of the week. We know that the feast of Passover is counted from the sighting of the new moon. So the 14th day is full moon and it fell in the middle of the week when YAHSHUA died when the passover lamb is killed. He then rose on the the Sabbath and we know that QORINTYAH -1- CORINTHIANS 15:4 says "And that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the scriptures:" The scripture tells us he rose the third day one Sabbath was the regular 7 day Sabbath and the other one the feast Sabbath counted by the moon

MARKUS - MARK 16:9
9 ¶ Now when YAHSHUA was risen early the first day after the shabbat, He appeared first to Miriam Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven devils.
10 And she went and told them that had been with Him, as they mourned and wept.
11 And they, when they had heard that He was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.

Is the same problem today? They believe not the record.
 

Manna in the Wilderness 

Another way we can know that this Lunar Sabbath pattern is wrong is simply that it does not line up with the manner that YAHWEH taught the children of Israel to observe the Sabbath in the wilderness.  What YAHWEH taught the children of Israel to do in the wilderness was simply to “count seven,” and then the seventh day was the Sabbath.  The phases of the moon are not mentioned at all. 
 

[Sh’mote (Exodus) 16:26] “Gather it in six days, but on the Seventh Day, which is the Sabbath, there is none.”

[27] And it came to be that some of the people went out on the seventh day to gather, but they found none. 
 

There is no mention of gathering enough manna to fulfill up to 3.5 days of an obscuration.  The only commandment is to take enough on the sixth day to last them through the end of the seventh day. 
 

[Sh’mote (Exodus) 16:22] And it came to be, on the sixth day, that they gathered twice as much bread; two omers for each one.  And all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moshe.

[23] And he said to them, “This is what YAHWEH has said, ‘Tomorrow is a rest, a Sabbath set apart to YAHWEH.  That which you bake, bake; and that which you cook, cook.  And lay up for yourselves all that is left over, to keep it until morning. 
 

Again, Moshe does not say that on the last week of the month you are to take in a little extra, “just in case the obscuration lasts a little bit longer than usual, or in case this happens to be the eight day week.”  Moshe makes no such exception. 

 

Remember the Sabbath day not the Lunar Sabbath

The Lunar Sabbath doctrine is all over the internet now and anyone that is not rooted and ground in the Word of YAHWEH will be taken by this false doctrine of the Lunar Sabbath. All I can say is Remember the Sabbath day (Seventh Day) and keep it Kodesh.  Satan tries his best to keep YAHWEH's people from keeping the true Sabbath day.  He has tried to pass off the first day of the week as the Sabbath day,  Now he is trying to pass off any day of the week. Because if you keep the Sabbath according to the Lunar Sabbath you will be keeping the Sabbath on different days of the week. YAHWEH put into place a seven day week cycle and it has never changed no matter what the Roman calendar may say there is still a seven day week cycle. YAHWEH's people please Remember the Sabbath Day (Seventh day) and to keep it Holy.
