What “Back to the Future” told us about Donald Trump

Many of us went to the Movie Theater back in 1985 to see the famous film called Back to the Future, written by Zionists Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis; and produced by Stephen Spielberg. There are many predicted events in Parts 1 & 2 of these films, particularly the events of 9/11/2001. 

If you look carefully, you will be able to see hidden messages about the Twin Towers in New York City coming down, and Trump’s Presidency 30 years before the events happened. I will get into more detail about each specific scene that reveals intel from the Global Elites in another blog. The character in the film named “Biff Tannen” was supposed to be the future President Trump who is shown in the film as a Tycoon who builds Gambling Casinos, and eventually becomes President.

‘Back to the Future’ Writer: Biff Tannen Is Based on Donald Trump


Bob Gale—writer of Back to the Future Part II says:

We thought about it when we made the movie! Are you kidding?” he says. “You watch Part II again and there’s a scene where Marty confronts Biff in his office and there’s a huge portrait of Biff on the wall behind Biff, and there’s one moment where Biff kind of stands up and he takes exactly the same pose as the portrait? Yeah.”
Of course, in the movie, Biff uses the profits from his 27-story casino (the Trump Plaza Hotel, completed in 1984, is 37 floors, by the way) to help shake up the Republican Party, before eventually assuming political power himself, helping transform Hill Valley, California, into a lawless, dystopian wasteland, where hooliganism reigns, dissent is quashed, and wherein Biff encourages every citizen to call him “America’s greatest living folk hero.”
“Yeah,” says Gale. “That’s what we were thinking about.”

In case you doubt my claims, see these links for more information about these men and their connection to the Illuminati, Israeli Mossad, and Noahide Zionism.

Steven Spielberg, John Williams and the Zionist Cinema Project

When they say, “We are all in this together,” they really mean it!

Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, Steven Spielberg, Robert Zemeckis, Bob Gayle are/were Israeli Intelligence Mossad Agents working undercover for the “Hollywood Zionist Cinema Project” when they made the “Back to the Future Films,” telling us ahead of time about the Twin Towers, and Trump’s Presidency!

What Does the #88 Represent?

After doing some research about the Occult & Freemasonry on the #88, I learned that it represents the mantra “Hail Hitler!” 

The eighth letter in the German and English Alphabet is the letter “H,” therefore, the #88 in the BTTF film has a hidden meaning. The DeLorean Time Machine car, must reach 88 MPH, before it can break the time barrier, and thus, enable the vehicle to travel into other time continuums. 

But there is another instance in the BTTF film, where the #88 appears, and it has gone mostly unnoticed by the average person who is not clued into the Zionist/Nazi/Vatican Agenda.

In “Back to the Future, Part 2,” Marty travels 30 years into the future from 1985 to 2015, where he sees an older version of himself.

There is a scene where Marty receives an incoming phone call, and he takes the call in his office. The person calling him is shown on his Television screen as a guy named “Douglas J. Needles.” I believe the character “Douglas J represents “Donald J,” with the first two letters in his initials as “DJ.” 


The last name “Needles,is an allusion to Trump’s claim to be “The Father of the Vaccines.” Incidentally, Trump’s moniker The Father of the Vaccines,” was also predicted in the 2010 film called “Megamind,” where Megamind injects Hal with a DNA-altering injection, and then tells him “I am your father, I am like your Space dad.” To learn more, see my other blog: Trump, Obama & Biden Portrayed in Megamind



The reference to being his “Space dad,” is a hint about Trump’s “Space Force,” which is all about satellites spying on us via computer chips that are injected via the jabs. 


Marty is asked to engage in a secret transaction with this guy “Needles,” and at first, he is scared to do it. But Needles bullies him into it by asking him if he is “A chicken.” This reminds us of the scare tactics the government, and media have been using to coerce people into take the jab. Marty finally gives in to the manipulation, and does what “Needles” is pressuring him to do. 

In June of 2020, President Trump donated 1.16 Billion American Tax Dollars to GAVI, an organization run by the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation for vaccine development. Needles accepting payment from Marty could also be a hint of this transaction between Trump & Gates. 

The term “You’re fired” is an allusion to the television show featuring Donald Trump entitled “The Apprentice,” where he would often have to say to his employees “You’re fired!”

Immediately after Marty pays the sum of money to “Needles,” his Chinese boss calls him, and says to Marty “Marty, Youre fired!” This is because President Trump calls the Coronavirus “The China Virus,” since the virus was supposedly created in a lab in Wuhan China. 

After that, the fax machine in Marty’s office spits out a long stream of paper displaying the phrase “You’re fired,” several times. This phrase “The Apprentice,” is a hint pertaining to “The Entered Apprentice,” in Freemasonry. This television show was a preview, showing us that those that do not submit to “The Father of the Vaccine  (by taking the jab), will be fired. 

The BTTF film showed Donald Trump being portrayed as “Biff Tannen.” Tannen (portraying Donald Trump), owns a Gambling Casino Tower, and he is also the President of the United States. Of particular interest is when the film displays the #88 several times as a clue about Hitler and the Nazi’s. As previously mentioned, the #88 is code for “Hail Hitler,” just as it is today for the mantra Hail Hydra,” from the Captain America films!

The Nazi’s were working on a particle collider, in the 1940’s, just like today’s CERN, which is an acronym for European Counsel for Nuclear Research.

The particle collider that CERN is developing enables time travel, or transportation into alternate realities. There was a book entitled “The Last President,” written by author, Ingersoll Lockwood in the 1890’s, in which he describes eerily similar things about Donald Trump. 

He also wrote another book entitled “Baron Trump’s Marvellous Underground Journey,” which is about a little boy who builds a time machine, and he travels to the future, via a portal in Russia.

The boy has a mentor who is named “Don” who calls himself “The Master of Masters.” 

As I have already mentioned, Stephen Spielberg, Bob Gale & Robert Zemeckis started a guild called “The Zionist Hollywood Cinema Project.” This guild was formed as a Secret Society for Political Zionists, so they can use film to tell the Global Elites of their plans to bring forth Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem. 

From this temple, they aim to present to the world their “Jewish Anti-Messiah,” who will rule as the one described in 2nd Thessalonians 2:4:

2nd Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called Elohiym, or that is worshipped; so that he as Elohiym sits in the temple of Elohiym, showing himself that he is Elohiym.  

President Trump’s family claim to be “Merovingian Jews,” meaning that they believe they are descendants of “Mary Magdalene & Jesus.” Merovingian refers to the womb of “Mary Magdalene” which they refer to as “The Holy Grail.” 



This is all explained in the film entitled “The Davinci Code,” starring Tom Hanks. The “Back to the Future” creators were working for Israeli Intelligence (Mossad), along with Jeffrey Epstein (who is probably still alive), Ghislaine Maxwell, and Bill Gates. They are “All in this together to help advance the One World Kingdom & Religion of Anti-Messiah.


At the 3:28 mark of this YouTube Video, you will see in the “Back to the Future
 film, where Biff Tannen says to George McFly Look, your shoes untied! 


When George McFly looks down at his left/right feet (shoelaces), Biff smacks him in the face, and says to him Dont be so gullible, McFly! 

The left foot/right foot is what Biff wanted George McFly to focus on, and while he effectively had him looking at the left/right paradigm, he missed the real attack that was coming! This is the one of the most effective strategies of the occult leaders within the Illuminati/Global Elites.

As I previously explained, writer of BTTF (Bob Gale) admitted in an interview that Biff Tannen was meant to portray Donald Trump. To learn more, see my other blog entitled “Is President Trump a Globalist? 

What I often hear from people is this kind of logic: “Maria, why are you focusing so much on Trump instead of all the evil that Biden is doing?

Here is my response: Because, when Trump tells you to look down at your shoelaces (a metaphor for Biden and the left/right paradigm), he will catch you off guard and smack you in the face!

Biden represents your shoelaces, and it is a perfect metaphor, because we have a right foot and a left foot. 

This means that the Illuminati/Zionists want you to stay focused on the “The Left-Right Paradigm” aka “The Hegelian Dialectic, so that you wonnotice the real attack coming right at you. Its the oldest trick in the book! See my other blog: What is the Hegelian Dialectic?


What does the #88 being displayed in the BTTF films have to do with Trump? Trump is often compared to “Captain America, who in the Comic Books later defects to the side of “Hydra, which is a secret Nazi Organization. The #88 was pointing us to “Hail Hydra,which is a mantra associated with Trump!

What is the meaning behind this mantra “Hail Hydra?Recently, on the Stew Peters show, Dr. Carrie Madej revealed that the Hydra Vulgaris creature is present in many of the Covid-19 injections!

Six Common Myths About the Temple, the Sacrifices, & the Abomination

By Maria Merola אריאל 

Myth #1.) I frequently hear believers declaring that the “snake bite” is “The Abomination of Desolation” spoken of by Daniel the Prophet, and therefore, we are already in the Great Tribulation. 

My Response to Myth #1.) 

I do agree that this “snake bite” is just one layer of fulfillment of the Abomination of Desolation. However, there will also be a literal fulfillment of the Abomination of Desolation with Solomon’s Temple being rebuilt in Jerusalem, and the “Image of the Beast” will be set up therein. 

This “snake bite” is indeed, the MOTB, it is not merely a precursor. Historically, the Abomination of Desolation is NOT the same thing as the MOTB. The Abomination of Desolation occurred two other times in history in the days of Antiochus Epiphanes, when he set up an image of Zeus in the Temple. 

It also had an intermediate fulfillment with the Roman General Titus, who erected an image of Jupiter (Zeus) just before the Roman Siege in 70 A.D. The Abomination of Desolation was spoken of by the prophet Daniel, and it pertains to the literal temple in Jerusalem.

However, in these last days, it also applies to these “snake bites” as well. Thus, it has a dual fulfillment. The MOTB is a separate thing from the Abomination of Desolation, (historically speaking). The MOTB is specifically something that pertains to the human body.

However, there is an overlap, where the AOD & MOTB are coinciding in these last days. 

As a matter of fact, I am probably the first person to identify the “snake bites” as the Abomination of Desolation in March of 2020.


Above is a graphic that I created in May of 2020 illustrating how this injection partially fulfills “The Abomination of Desolation,” as well as “The Mark of the Beast.” 

We cannot be in the Great Tribulation yet, because, our Messiah told us precisely when it will begin:

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 24:15 When you therefore shall SEE the abomination of desolation....Matthew 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 

Now, let’s take a look at the prophecies in Daniel, concerning the “daily sacrifices” in the Temple being “taken away.” It is important to understand at this point, that not all animal sacrifices were conducted for sin. 

Even the Passover Lamb sacrifice was to redeem the “firstborn” son. It was technically not considered a sin sacrifice, because it was not done inside the Temple. The only animal sacrifice that was done for the national sins of Yisra’el was the Yom Kippur goat once per year by the High Priest. 

The evening and the morning sacrifices are not to be done for sin. They are to be conducted daily as an act of worship to YaHuWaH. Additionally, the priests were commanded to partake of the meat offerings for their food. Therefore, the daily sacrifices served two purposes. They were an act of worship, and they were intended as food to sustain the priests.

There are three places in Scripture where it tells us that the Anti-Messiah will “take away” the daily sacrifices in the Temple, and will subsequently set up an idolatrous image.

Daniel 8:11 Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of the sanctuary was cast down

*Note: the word “sacrifice” in the above passage, was added by the English translators, and therefore, some people think they have found proof that this verse is not speaking about animal sacrifices in the temple. However, the word “daily” in the Hebrew Concordance, is #H8548 “tamiyd” which quite literally means “the regular daily sacrifice.” 

A well-known Torah teacher named Matthew Nolan tries to debunk this passage of Scripture by claiming that the phrase “taken away” means “to exalt, to lift up, to raise up.” By twisting the definition of “taken away,” he falsely claims that the act of performing the daily sacrifices in the Temple is a sin against YaHuWaH.

However, we are going to test his theory. The term “taken away” is defined in the Hebrew Strong’s Concordance as follows: 

#H7311 ruwm room a primitive root; to be high actively, to rise or raise (in various applications, literally or figuratively):--bring up, exalt (self), extol, give, go up, haughty, heave (up), (be, lift up on, make on, set up on, too) high(-er, one), hold up, levy, lift(-er) up, (be) lofty, (X a-)loud, mount up, offer (up), + presumptuously, (be) promote(-ion), proud, set up, tall(-er), take away, breed worms

The term “cast down” is defined in the Hebrew Strong’s Concordance as follows: 

#H7993 shalak shaw-lak a primitive root; to throw out, down or away (literally or figuratively):--adventure, cast away, down, forth, off, out), hurl, pluck, throw. 

As you can see, Mr. Nolan is not being honest with the text. He is using only one of the synonyms of this word to build his case, but he ignores the other definitions.

Daniel 11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that makes desolate

#H5493 cuwr soor or suwr (Hosea 9:12) {soor}; a primitive root; to turn off (literal or figurative):--be(-head), bring, call back, decline, depart, eschew, get (you), go (aside), grievous, lay away (by), leave undone, be past, pluck away, put away, down), rebel, remove (to and fro), revolt, X be sour, take (away, off), turn (aside, away, in), withdraw, be without

Daniel 12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. 

#H5493 cuwr soor or suwr (Hosea 9:12) {soor}; a primitive root; to turn off (literal or figurative):--be(-head), bring, call back, decline, depart, eschew, get (you), go (aside), X grievous, lay away (by), leave undone, be past, pluck away, put (away, down), rebel, remove (to and fro), revolt, X be sour, take (away, off), turn (aside, away, in), withdraw, be without. 

President Donald Trump has been asked by the Zionists to build Solomon’s Temple, and I believe that he will. 

They have even minted his image on this golden coin, to signify that he is a fulfillment of the “Little Horn” in Daniel chapter’s 7 & 9. 

Myth #2.) The Levitical Priesthood is done away with, and the animal sacrifices are also done away with, since Messiah died on the tree and resurrected. 

My Response to Myth #2: 

The first thing I would like to point out, is that the only thing that changed in the “New Covenant” was the role of the “High Priest,” the Kohen ha’Gadowl. The regular priests will still be functioning under Messiah as the High Priest in the Millennium. 

There will also be two priesthoods functioning in the Millennium, just as King David’s Temple had both the Melchizedek Priesthood, from the Sons of Tzadowq (Zadok), and the Aaronic Priests working together. 

David Among the Priests: Seeing the Royal Priesthood of David in the Book of 1 Chronicles


It is also important to point out the famous words of our Messiah, in Matthew 5:17-19. 

Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 

Matthew 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 

When does the present heaven and earth pass away? 

Revelation 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 

Revelation 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from Elohiym out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 

Not one punctuation mark, (not even the smallest part) of the Mosaic Law (Torah) is done away with until heaven and earth pass away!

And this does not happen after the 1,000-year reign of Messiah, here on earth. Until then, even the smallest, seemingly most insignificant part of the Law & Prophets are still in effect! To illustrate this, I want to show you what these words “jot and tittle” mean. 

#G2503. iota ee-o'-tah of Hebrew origin (the tenth letter of the Hebrew alphabet); "iota", the name of the eighth letter of the Greek alphabet, put (figuratively) for a very small part of anything:--jot.

#G2762. keraia ker-ah'-yah feminine of a presumed derivative of the base of 2768; something horn-like, i.e. (specially) the apex of a Hebrew letter (figuratively, the least particle):--tittle

The root word is as follows:

#G2768. keras ker'-as from a primary kar (the hair of the head); a horn (literally or figuratively):--horn. 

In Daniel’s prophecy, the term “Little Horn” in Hebrew is “qeren ze`eyr,” meaning “Little Trump.” 

The Greek word for “pass away” is as follows:

#G3928. parerchomai par-er'-khom-ahee from 3844 and 2064; to come near or aside, i.e. to approach (arrive), go by (or away), (figuratively) perish or neglect, (causative) avert:--come (forth), go, pass (away, by, over), past, transgress

Matthew 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Until heaven and earth is transgressed, one little horn shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

2nd Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery [secret, esoteric religion] of iniquity [anomia, lawlessness] does already work: only he who now lets [possesses, seizes upon] will let, until he be taken [be divided, finished] out of the way [in the middle or midst]. 

#G458. anomia an-om-ee'-ah from 459; illegality, i.e. violation of law or (genitive case) wickedness:--iniquity, X transgress(-ion of) the law, unrighteousness

#G459. anomos an'-om-os from 1 (as a negative particle) and 3551; lawless, i.e. (negatively) not subject to (the Jewish) law; (by implication, a Gentile), or (positively) wicked:--without law, lawless, transgressor, unlawful, wicked. 

The phrase “he who now lets  is as follows:

#G2722. katecho kat-ekh'-o from 2596 and 2192; to hold down (fast), in various applications (literally or figuratively):--have, hold (fast), keep (in memory), let, X make toward, possess, retain, seize on, stay, take, withhold

The phrase “taken  is as follows:

#G1096. ginomai ghin'-om-ahee a prolongation and middle voice form of a primary verb; to cause to generate, i.e. (reflexively) to become (come into being), used with great latitude (literal, figurative, intensive, etc.):--arise, be assembled, be(-come, -fall, -have self), be brought (to pass), (be) come (to pass), continue, be divided, draw, be ended, fall, be finished, follow, be found, be fulfilled, + God forbid, grow, happen, have, be kept, be made, be married, be ordained to be, partake, pass, be performed, be published, require, seem, be showed, X soon as it was, sound, be taken, be turned, use, wax, will, would, be wrought. 

The phrase “out of the way  is as follows:

#G3319. mesos mes'-os from 3326; middle (as an adjective or (neuter) noun):--among, X before them, between, + forth, mid(-day, -night), midst, way. 

To Understand who it is that withholds the Anti-Messiah, until he finishes his transgressions, see my blog entitled: The Mysterious Restrainer: Who Withholds the “Man of Sin?”

Myth #3 Animal Sacrifices will not be conducted in the New Millennium. 

My Response to Myth #3:

There is more than enough evidence to prove that 100% of the Torah & Prophets will be in effect during the one-thousand-year reign of Messiah, and this will also include animal sacrifices. 

A careful reading of Ezekiel 40-48 reveals that the “Messiah the Prince” shall offer “oblations” in the New Millennium Temple (Ezekiel 45:7 &16; 48:21). 

#H8641 truwmah ter-oo-maw' or trumah (Deut. 12:11) {ter-oo-maw'}; from 7311; a present (as offered up), especially in sacrifice or as tribute:-- gift, heave offering (shoulder), oblation, offered.

#H8642 truwmiyah ter-oo-mee-yaw' formed as 8641; a sacrificial offering:--oblation. 

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 16:5 And in mercy shall the throne be established: and he shall sit upon it in truth in the tabernacle of David, judging, and seeking judgment, and hasting righteousness. 

Amos 9:11 In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old: 

Acts 15:16 After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up

Zacharyahuw (Zechariah) 6:11 Then take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set them upon the head of Yahuwshuwa (Joshua) the son of Yahuwzedeq (Josedech), the high priest;

Zacharyahuw (Zechariah) 6:12 And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaks YHWH of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of YHWH.

Zacharyahuw (Zechariah) 6:13 Even he shall build the temple of YHWH; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both. 

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 2:3 And many people shall go and say, Come you, and let us go up to the mountain of YHWH, to the house of the Elohiym of Yaaqob (Jacob); and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Tziyown (Zion) shall go forth the Torah (law), and the word of YHWH from Yerushalayim (Jerusalem). 

Mikayahuw (Micah) 4:2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of YHWH, and to the house of the Elohiym of Yaaqob (Jacob); and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the Torah (law) shall go forth of Tziyown (Zion), and the word of YHWH from Jerusalem. 

Myth #4 “Under the Mosaic Covenant, animal blood took away our sins. However, when Messiah died on the cross, animal blood no longer took away our sins, but our Messiah’s blood became the ultimate fulfillment. Therefore, moving forward, no animal sacrifices are needed in the New Millennium. 

Response to Myth #4:

Animal blood NEVER took away sins in the first place, not even in the so-called “Old Testament” or the Tanakh! 

Animal blood only served as a “prophetic picture” of “The Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” Therefore, even in the Tabernacle of Moses, animal sacrifices were already obsolete!

Animal sacrifices were done in the past, as a prophetic shadow picture of our Messiah’s future death on the cross. 

However, in the New Millennium, they will be conducted as a “MEMORIAL” of what he has done for us in the past! 

Shemoth (Exodus) 12:14 And this day shall be unto you for MEMORIAL; and you shall keep it a feast to YHWH throughout your generations; you shall keep it a feast by an ordinance FOREVER.

This is why Yahuwshuwa commands us to “Do this in remembrance of me!” 

Luke 22:19 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and broke it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. 

1st Corinthians 11:24 And when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. 

1st Corinthians 11:25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do you, as often as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

Yahuwshuwa’s blood was available in eternity to atone for our sins, even before he manifested in the flesh, and died for us!

Ibriym (Hebrews) 10:4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. 

Yahuwchanon (John) 17:24 Father, I will that they also, whom you have given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which you have given me: for you love me before the foundation of the world. 

Ephesians 1:4 According as he has chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: 

Ibriym (Hebrews) 4:3 For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.

Ibriym (Hebrews) 9:26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. 

1st Keefa (Peter) 1:20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, 

Revelation 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him [the beast], whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 

Myth #5: The Anti-Messiah will erect a false Temple.

My Response to Myth #5: 

The Apostle Shaul (Paul) makes it abundantly clear that the Anti-Messiah will defile the Temple of Elohiym--not the Temple of Satan.

2nd Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called Elohiym, or that is worshipped; so that he as Elohiym sits in the temple of Elohiym, showing himself that he is Elohiym.

Clearly, this is not the Temple of Satan!

This is actually the Temple of Elohiym! 

It does not matter who builds it, or whose money is used. What makes the Temple holy, is the fact that the land is already holy, because YaHuWaH has chosen to place his name there! 

Where & When Does Towrah Command That We Kill the Passover?

Debariym (Deuteronomy) 16:2 You shall therefore sacrifice the Passover unto YHWH your Elohiym, of the flock and the herd, in the place which YHWH shall choose to place his name there. 

Debariym (Deuteronomy) 16:6 But at the place which YHWH your Elohiym shall choose to place his name in, there you shall sacrifice the Passover at evening, at the going down of the sun, at the season that you came forth out of Mitzrayim (Egypt). 

And Where Has YaHuWaH Chosen To Place His Name? 

1st Malakiym (Kings) 11:36 And unto his son will I give one tribe, that Dawiyd (David) my servant may have a light alway before me in Yerushalayim (Jerusalem), the city which I have chosen me to put my name there. 

2nd Malakiym (Kings) 21:4 And he built altars in the house of YHWH, of which YHWH said, In Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) will I put my name. 

2nd Malakiym (Kings) 21:7 And he set a graven image of the grove that he had made in the house, of which YHWH said to Dawiyd (David), and to Shelomo (Solomon) his son, In this house, and in Yerushalayim (Jerusalem), which I have chosen out of all tribes of Yisra’el, will I put my name for ever.

2nd Malakiym (Kings) 23:27 And YHWH said, I will remove Yahuwdah (Judah) also out of my sight, as I have removed Yisra’el, and will cast off this city Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) which I have chosen, and the house of which I said, My name shall be there. 

2nd Dibre ha Yamiym (Chronicles) 6:6 But I have chosen Yerushalayim (Jerusalem), that my name might be there; and have chosen Dawiyd (David) to be over my people Yisra’el. 

2nd Dibre ha Yamiym (Chronicles) 33:4 Also he built altars in the house of YHWH, whereof YHWH had said, In Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) shall my name be forever. 

2nd Dibre ha Yamiym (Chronicles) 33:7 And he set a carved image, the idol which he had made, in the house of Elohiym, of which Elohiym had said to Dawiyd (David) and to Shelomo (Solomon) his son, In this house, and in Yerushalayim (Jerusalem), which I have chosen before all the tribes of Yisra’el, will I put my name for ever:

What makes the Temple Holy, is that YaHuWaH has placed his name in Jerusalem! 

Also, the design of the Tabernacle is his design. If they build the Temple to the specifications that he has already laid out in the Torah, he will honor it at first. 

The sin does not occur until “The daily sacrifices are taken away,” and the Abomination of Desolation or “The Image of the Beast” is set up (Revelation 13:14). 

Right up until that point, YaHuWaH will honor the animal sacrifices, because they are a prophetic shadow picture of Messiah. When the Anti-Messiah “takes away” the daily sacrifices, he is taking away the prophetic picture of Messiah!

Myth #6: The current Jerusalem, Israel is a false Israel, since it was funded by the Zionist Bankers, such as the Rockfellers and the Rothschild family. 

My Response to Myth #6

Despite the fact that the Modern State of Israel was financed by the Zionists, YaHuWaH allowed Israel to become a nation again in 1948 for his prophetic purposes. 

Those in the nations that belong to Yahuwshuwa, are part of “The Commonwealth of Yisra’el, (Ephesians 2), but we have not replaced Yisrael, for it is the Promised Land that was given to Abraham, and to his descendants. That includes those that belong to Messiah (Galatians 3:28). 

YaHuWaH says in Proverbs 13:22 The wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just. If he wants to use the wealth of the Zionists, and the Illuminati to finance his prophetic purposes, that is his business. 

The stage has to be set for the return of the Messiah to the Mount of Olives. You will notice that it does not say in Zechariah 12, that he will pour out his spirit on Palestine. 

It says that just before the return of Messiah, he will Pour out the Spirit of grace and supplications upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the Kingdom of Judah. 

Yahuwshuwa has not forgotten national Yisrael, despite the fact that many of them are still largely in unbelief. He promises to save one-third of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the other two-thirds will perish (see Zechariah 13:8; Ezekiel 5). 

I disagree with those that say The State of Israel isn't the biblical Israel. 

Yahuwshuwa taught us The Parable of the Fig Tree, which gives us an accurate timeline of when he will return. 

Mattityahuw (Matthew) 24: 

32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near: 

33 So likewise you, when you shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 

34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 

How long is a generation? 

Tehilliym (Psalm) 90:10 The days of our lives are seventy years; Or if due to strength, EIGHTY YEARS, Yet the best of them is but toil and exertion; For it is soon cut off, and we fly away. 

*Explanation: By adding 80 years to 1948, it brings us to the year 2028, when I believe our Messiah will return on Yom Kippur!

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 66:7 Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child. 

*Note: Revelation 12 describes the woman (Jerusalem who is the mother of us all, Galatians 4:26). She gives birth to the man-child, the one new man (Ephesians 2:15). 

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 66:8 Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Tziyown (Zion) travailed, she brought forth her children

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 66:9 Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? Says, YHWH: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? Says your Elohiym. 

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 66:10 Rejoice you with Yerushalayim (Jerusalem), and be glad with her, all you that love her: rejoice for joy with her, all you that mourn for her.

How Can the Prince in Ezekiel Be the Messiah, if he offers up a Sin Offering For Himself?

One commentary I found online, is woefully ignorant of what the High Priest is required to do. 


This is what they wrote:

“The prince in Ezekiel 46 is not the Messiah. Rather, he seems to be the overseer of Jerusalem, serving under the Messiah’s authority. We know that this prince is not the Lord Jesus because he must make a sin offering for himself as well as the people: “On that day the prince is to provide a bull as a sin offering for himself and for all the people of the land” (Ezekiel 45:22, emphasis added). Whoever the prince is, he is a man with a sinful nature.” 

What this website fails to understand, is that our Messiah “Must fulfill all righteousness,” just like when he was baptized by his cousin, John in the Jordan River. Even though he never sinned during his earthly ministry (and he was never a sinner), he will fulfill all the ordinances of the High Priest that the Levites were also commanded to perform.

The only difference, is that he (being an eternal priest after the Order of Melchizedek), will do it perfectly, and without sin. The purpose of the Prince offering a “sin offering for himself,” it is to teach us through “object lessons.” The High Priest after the Order of Melchizedek offers a sin offering “for himself,” because he will be “role-playing” in front of us. It is because sinful mankind (humanity) was meant to be “A Kingdom of Priests,” (Exodus 19:6). 

However, they failed to adequately walk in this role perfectly. In Leviticus 16, the ordinance for the High Priest after the Sons of Aaron including offering offer a sin offering for themselves. This is because they were mortals, born with a sinful nature. Conversely, our Messiah is eternal, and does not need to make a sin offering for himself. So why will he do it in the Millennium? 

It is for the same reason that he allowed himself to be baptized (washed) by his cousin, Yahuwchanon (John). It is not because he was a sinner. As a matter of fact, Yahuwchanon (John) recognized that he needed to be cleansed by Yahuwshuwa---not the other way around! 

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 3: 

13 Then came Yahuwshuwa from Galilee to Yarden (Jordan), to be immersed (baptized) of him. 

14 But Yahuwchanon (John) forbade him, saying “I have need to be immersed (baptized) of you, and you come to me?” What Yahuwshuwa says next, explains why he allowed himself to be counted as a sinner, even though he never sinned: 

15 And Yahuwshuwa answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becomes us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. 

If Messiah tells us in Matthew 5:17-19 that 100% of the Towrah and Prophets must be fulfilled during the Millennium (until heaven and earth are passed away), this would have to also include the ordinance for the High Priest to “offer a sin offering for himself.” 

This act will simply serve as a memorial of what he has done for us in the past. It will serve as an “object lesson” for us all. 

Yahuwshuwa was not a sinner, and yet he portrayed the Yom Kippur Sacrificial Goat for the sins of humanity. Why? 

Yahuwshuwa was not a sinner, and yet, he was portrayed as the bronze serpent on the pole (John 3:14). Why? 

Yahuwshuwa was not a sinner, and yet he was baptized by his cousin, Yahuwchanon (John) who was a Levite. Why? 

The answer is simple. As our role model, he came to fulfill all the righteousness of the Towrah in front of us as. All during the Millennium, Yahuwshuwa will be “The Greater King David,” and He will be the only High Priest---there will be no other. 

His baptism is reminiscent of Leviticus 16:4, where the High Priest was commanded to wash himself first, before performing the Yom Kippur Sacrifice. Therefore, Yahuwshuwa’s baptism was 40 days before Yom Kippur. At his baptism, he was displaying the pattern of the sacrificial goat, who would be killed for the people, as well as the scapegoat, who was to be sent away into the wilderness. 

He also fulfilled Leviticus 16:6, as he allowed himself to become “The Red Heifer.The Red Heifer is the only sacrifice that was done outside the city limits of Jerusalem. All other sacrifices were performed in the Temple.

Why did he allow himself to be treated as a sinner, even though he never sinned? It is because, all the righteousness of the Towrah must be fulfilled during the Millennium. 

2nd Qorintiym (Corinthians) 5:21 For he has made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of Elohiym in him.

The Lunar Sabbath Controversy

By Maria Merola
© Copyright Double Portion Inheritance, May 2011
http://www.DoublePortionInheritance.com/

In the year 2009, I began witnessing many within the Hebraic Root’s Community adhere to a Lunar Sabbath Calendar.” At first glance, it seemed rather complicated, so I just ignored it, until I sensed the leading of the Ruwach (Spirit) in 2011 to look into it. I needed to give a response to those who were asking me questions about it, but I had a difficult time understanding it.

Thankfully, our Messiah, Yahuwshuwa taught us in Yahuwchanon (John) 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.

That is exactly what I did in May of 2011, as I sought to hear his voice regarding the Lunar Sabbath reckoning. Even though (as a child), I did not possess a strong interest in mathematics, YaHuWaH has expanded my understanding by his Spirit, and has given me the aptitude to see his created order through the lens of his Towrah (instructions).

What exactly is Lunar Sabbatarianism?  

This method of time-keeping purports that one must use the new moon each month, in order to begin the count of seven days leading up to the Sabbath day. While it is true that we are to sight the new moon each month, the moon is not for measuring seven-day cycles. The moon is for measuring 30-day cycles, and for helping us know when to keep the appointed Feast Days of YaHuWaH (Deuteronomy 16:1; Psalm 81:3; Isaiah 66:23).

In this method, whatever day of the week the new moon happens to fall, that will determine every Sabbath day for the remainder of that month. As an example, if a new moon happens to fall on a Wednesday, then every Wednesday for that month will be a Sabbath on the 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th day, leaving one extra day at the end of the month. On the 30th day of the month, nobody knows how that day should be reckoned, therefore it is not counted into the equation. Some Lunar Sabbatarians keep the Sabbath on the 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th of each month. However, this still leaves 2 extra days at the end of each month, and one more day for the next new moon. Hence, there are three “non-days,” where they do not work.

Consequently, there are some Lunar Sabbatarians who will keep the last Sabbath of the month (on the 29th), and they will go back to work on the 30th.  On the 8th day into the count, (in the following month) is another Sabbath. This means they will have to work for eight days in a row, (before they can keep another Sabbath), but this is clearly a violation the commandment:

Shemoth (Exodus) 31:15 Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to YHWH: whosoever does any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. 

Shemoth (Exodus) 35:2 Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you a holy day, a sabbath of rest to YHWH: whosoever does work therein shall be put to death.

Wayyikra (Leviticus) 23:3 Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, a holy convocation; you shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of YHWH in all your dwellings. 

Other Lunar Sabbatarians, (in order to avoid this violation), decide to keep a 3-day long Sabbath of rest from the 29th (the last Sabbath of the month), and yet another Sabbath (the next day on the on the 30th); followed by a third consecutive day on the 1st of the next month!

They do not go back to work, (because they have to wait for the new moon, before they can return back to work). However, there is no place in scripture where we are commanded to abstain from regular work or employment for three consecutive days (while waiting for a new moon). Lunar Sabbatarians often use the following scriptures to support their error:

1st Shemu’el (Samuel) 20: 

5 And Dawiyd (David) said unto Yahuwnathan, Behold, tomorrow is the new moon, and I should not fail to sit with the king at meat: but let me go, that I may hide myself in the field unto the third day at even….. 

18 Then Yahuwnathan said to Dawiyd (David), Tomorrow is the new moon: and you shall be missed, because your seat will be empty

Lunar Sabbatarians use the above passages in an effort to “prove” that we are to take a three-day sabbatical until the new moon appears in the sky. However, there is no such commandment in the Torah, telling us that we must keep a three-day sabbatical leading up to the new moon. In 1st Samuel 20, David was simply afraid for his life, (because Saul wanted to kill him), therefore, he hid himself for three days and nights to fast and pray. 

1st Samuel 20, is not indicating that David was keeping some kind of Sabbath for three days. As a matter of fact, this very same chapter (which Lunar Sabbatarians erroneously use to prove their belief) can be used to disprove a Lunar Sabbath reckoning.

A friend of mine name Sarah explained how these verses helped her see that the Lunar Sabbath reckoning is false:

Sarah’s Testimony:

When I did this study, I prayed and prayed, and asked Elohiym to show me if I was wrong in my observance of Sabbath. I told him I was willing to change, and asked him to please teach me as a child. I deliberately tried to forget everything I knew, (and learned), about the Sabbath. Not long after praying, Elohiym directed me to 1st Samuel 20, and I was devastated. I thought, “Great! I’m going to have to start observing the Lunar Sabbath!” I was wondering to myself “Why are You directing me to this portion of text----a portion of text that the Lunar Sabbatarians use to prove their stance?” Well, I kept on reading. I didn’t stop at Chapter 20, but I kept reading, and praying, completely willing to change the way I observed Sabbath. And then I saw it---as if for the first time, and I jumped for joy - ahahahaahh! 

Here is what YaHuWaH showed Sarah as she continued reading: 

1st Shemu’el (Samuel) 20:5 And Dawiyd (David) said to Yahuwnathan, “See, tomorrow is the new moon, and I ought to sit with the King to eat. But let me go, and I shall hide in the field until the third day at evening.”

Lunar Sabbatarians say that David hid himself for three days (because he was keeping the “new moon days”); but he was hiding from Sha’ul (Saul) who wanted to kill him. The third day from the new moon was the 3rd day of the month. 

Now, take a look at these verses to see what is really taking place here:

1st Shemu’el (Samuel) 20:24 And Dawiyd (David) hid in the field. And when the new moon came, the King sat down by the food to eat.

1st Shemu’el (Samuel) 20:27 And it came to be the next day, the second day of the month, that Dawiyḏ’s (David’s) place was empty. And Shaʼul said to Yahuwnathan his son, Why has the son of Yishai (Jesse) not come to eat, either yesterday or today?

1st Shemu’el (Samuel) 20:34 And Yahuwnathan rose up from the table in the heat of displeasure, and ate no food the second day of the month, for he was grieved for Dawiyd (David), because his father put him to shame.

This was the second day of the month. The next morning Yahuwnathan (Jonathan) went out in the field to shoot arrows so this was the 3rd day of the month:

1st Shemu’el (Samuel) 20:35 And it came to be, in the morning, that Yahuwnathan went out into the field at the time appointed with Dawiyd (David), and a small youth was with him.  

1st Shemu’el (Samuel) 20:42 And Yahuwnathan said to Dawiyd (David), “Go in peace, since we have both sworn in the name of YHWH, saying, YHWH is between you and me, and between your seed and my seed forever.” Then he arose and left, and Yahuwnathan went into the city. 

1st Shemu’el (Samuel) 21:1 And Dawiyd (David) came to Nob, to Ahimelek the priest. And Ahimelek trembled when he met Dawiyd (David), and asked him, “Why are you alone, and no one is with you?” 

1st Shemu’el (Samuel) 21:2 And Dawiyd (David) said unto Ahimelek the priest, “The King has commanded me a word, and said to me, ‘Let no one know whatever of the word about which I send you, and which I have commanded you.’ And I have directed my young men to such and such a place.”

1st Shemu’el (Samuel) 21:3 “And now, what do you have on hand? Give five loaves into my hand, or whatever is found.” 

1st Shemu’el (Samuel) 21:4 And the priest answered Dawiyd (David), and said, “There is no ordinary bread on hand, but there is set-apart bread- provided the young men have kept themselves from women.” 

1st Shemu’el (Samuel) 21:5 And Dawiyd (David) answered the priest, and said to him, “Truly women have been kept from us about these three days, since I came out. And the vessels of the young men are set-apart, and it is an ordinary mission, and also, it was set-apart in the vessel today.”
  
1st Shemu’el (Samuel) 21:6 Then the priest gave him set-apart bread, for there was no bread there except the showbread which had been taken from before YHWH, in order to put hot bread in on the day it is taken away. 

From these verses of 1st Samuel 20-21, we learn the following:

#1.) David came out of hiding on the 3rd day from the new moon, and the men had been away from women for three days!

#2.) Then the priest gave David the old showbread, because the new showbread had just been baked, and this was the day they were replacing the old showbread with the fresh showbread. And what day of the week is the new showbread replaced?   

The showbread was always changed out on the Sabbath day:

Wayyikra (Leviticus) 24:5-8: 

5 And you shall take fine flour and bake twelve cakes with it, two-tenth of an ephah in each cake. 

6 And you shall set them in two rows, six on a row, on the clean table before YHWH. 

7 And you shall put clear frankincense on each row, and that it may be on the bread for a memorial, even an offering made by fire unto YHWH. 

On every Sabbath he is to arrange it before YHWH continually, from the children of Yisra’el an everlasting covenant.  

Therefore, if the Sabbath is supposed to be determined by a new moon, (and this was the third day of the month, when the new showbread was baked), it does not match the Lunar Sabbath reckoning!

According to the Lunar Sabbath reckoning, every seven days from the new moon is a Sabbath! But in 1st Samuel 20-21, we have clear proof that David was eating the old showbread (on a Sabbath day), and it was the 3rd day of the month!

David was clearly into his 3rd day from the new moon (when he came out of hiding), and this was the day that the priest was changing out the old showbread (on the Sabbath day), and it was the 3rd day of the month!

Another thing that now makes sense, is that Yahuwshuwa Messiah (when being questioned about his supposed violation of the Sabbath), pointed out that King David ate the showbread. Now, why would he have used this example? 

Because King David received the showbread on the Sabbath, which was the third day of the month!

This is clearly a prophetic picture of when our Messiah died on the tree (the fourth day of the week, Wednesday), and he was “hidden” in the heart of the earth for “Three days and three nights (Matthew 12:40), before he resurrected “On the third day!”

In other words, our Messiah as “The Bread of Life,” (John 6:35, 48, 51), who resurrected on the Sabbath day, at the same time that the priests are required to change the “old showbread” (symbolic of the old corruptible body). When Yahuwshuwa resurrected, he put on incorruption, which is like the “new showbread!” (Ephesians 4:22-24; Colossians 2:11 & 3:9-10).


Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 12: 

1 At that time Yahuwshuwa went on the Sabbath day through the corn; and his disciples were hungry, and began to pluck the ears of corn and to eat. 

2 But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him, Behold, your disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the Sabbath day. 

3 But he said unto them, Have you not read what Dawiyd (David) did, when he was hungry, and they that were with him? 

Trying to Fit a Square Peg Into a Round Hole  

The same thing happened to me, that happened to Sarah. I was praying about this Lunar Sabbath reckoning, and was very troubled about it. Some of my friends were pressuring me, and they wanted my opinion on it. I had already seen the evidence before, (on both sides of the argument), but I was still unsure of what to believe about the Lunar Sabbath reckoning. I was willing to make the switch (if it was truly the correct time-keeping). Finally, I decided to go into prayer about it, in May of 2011. This is what YaHuWaH spoke to my heart:

He said “Maria look at the Shmita---the seven-year Sabbatical Cycles.” 

I opened up my computer calculator, and under the direction of the Ruwach haQodesh (Holy Spirit), this is what YaHuWaH said to me:

“You cannot fit seven days into thirty days evenly; and you cannot fit seven days into 360 days evenly. YaHuWaH showed me that the smallest denominator that you can fit seven days into, is a seven- year sabbatical cycle, which is 2,520 days.

2,520 ÷ 7 = 360

This means that in the 7th year, the land has to take a rest of 360 days (one biblical year). The land has been producing food for us for seven years (without any rest on the Sabbath). Therefore, keeping the Sabbath (every seventh day), means that we end up keeping just as many Sabbaths in a seven-year period as the land. We end up keeping 360 Sabbaths in seven years, and the land keeps a Sabbath rest of 360 days (one biblical year).

However, because Lunar Sabbatarians do not carry over the those extra two days into the next month, (which results in there being extra days to carry over into the next year), they only end up keeping 336 Sabbaths in a seven-year period!

This means that they are missing 24 Sabbaths every seven years! This does not match the same amount of Sabbaths that the land must rest in a Sabbatical Year! See Leviticus 25.

New Moon Festivals

Lunar Sabbatarians often cite passage of scripture, where a new moon is to be celebrated with the sounding of a shophar, and a simple recognition that it is a new month.

However, this does not mean that a new moon festival involves a three-day long Sabbath (before being allowed to go back to work). Some Lunar Sabbatarians have even jeopardized their jobs (by staying home from work for three days), while waiting for a new moon. This confusing way of keeping the Sabbath is clearly a violation of the Towrah:

Shemoth (Exodus) 20:9-10 Six days shall you labour, and do all your work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of YHWH your Elohiym: in it you shall not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger that is within your gates.

The same commandments (instructing us to work six days, and then rest on the seventh), are repeated in the following passages: Exodus 23:12, 31:15, 34:21, 35:2; Leviticus 23:3; Deuteronomy 5:13, 16:8; Ezekiel 46. 

While Lunar Sabbatarians argue that the Jews have altered the Creator’s Calendar (and they did with Hillel II in the 4th Century). This was mainly because of the diaspora following the Roman Siege in 70 A.D. Because they were no longer functioning in the the Jerusalem Temple, they were unable to sight the new moon each month as commanded in Deuteronomy 16:1. Since the fourth century, Judaism has adopted an alternate calendar (based on a fixed calculation), but this reckoning needs a 13th month seven times within a 19-year period. 

The Jewish Sanhedrin is aware of the fact that we are commanded to sight the new moon, but they have been waiting (since 1948) to return to that method. What are they waiting for?

This article dated March 15th, 2016, explains that after 2,000 years, the Sanhedrin have finally begun to sight the new moon as commanded:


Lunar Sabbatarians, (in their efforts to depart from Pharisaism), they are creating their own brand of Pharisaism:

Debariym (Deuteronomy) 4:2 You shall not add unto the word which I command youneither shall you diminish anything from it, that you may keep the commandments of YHWH your Elohiym which I command you. 

By adding these two or three extra days of Sabbath (at the end of the month), Lunar Sabbatarians are adding to the commandments.

Genesis 1:14-16 tells us that YaHuWaH created the sun, the moon, and the stars on the fourth day of creation for observing “times nad seasons” (mowediym, or festivals).

This is the mechanism by which YaHuWaH has chosen for us to measure linear time as well. You will notice (by reading the entire account of Genesis 1), that YaHuWaH started counting seven days before he created the moon on the fourth day. If he wanted us to begin the count with the new moon, why did he count the first three days of his creation as inclusive of seven days? 

If YaHuWaH wanted us to begin the count with the new moon, then he would have rested on the tenth day instead of on the seventh day!

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 1:  

14 And Elohiym 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: 

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 Elohiym 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 Elohiym 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 Elohiym saw that it was good.

19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day

Lunar Sabbatarians would argue that since YaHuWaH separated the light from the darkness (on the first day of creation) that is when he made the sun and the moon. But that is not what scripture says. It clearly says that he “made” the sun, the moon, and the stars on the fourth day in Genesis 1:16.

Other verses that Lunar Sabbatarians use out of context are as follows:

Yeshuyahuw (Isaiah) 66:23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to anotherand from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, says YHWH.

Yechezqel (Ezekiel) 46:1 Thus says YHWH Elohiym, “The gate of the inner court that looks toward the east shall be shut the six working days; but on the Sabbath it shall be opened, and in the day of the new moon it shall be opened.”

Now, it is very important that we pay close attention to the words “and” in these verses. You will notice that a new moon is not the same thing as a Sabbath. If they were one and the same, there would be no need to mention the word “and.” A new moon is called “Rosh Chodesh” meaning “head of the month,” and it is to be a set apart as a day of recognizing a new month. But there is no mention in Leviticus 23 (where the commandment is given to keep the seventh day holy), that we are to celebrate a new moon as a Shabbat.

How Long is a Biblical Month and Year? 

In Genesis 7:24 and in Genesis 8:3 we find out that Noah’s Ark rested on the waters for 150 days. In Revelation 11:3, the two witnesses will have a ministry that lasts for 1,260 days. When this is divided by 3.5 there are 30 days for each month. In Revelation 13:5, the Antichrist speaks blasphemies for 42 months, which is a total of 3.5 years. The prophet Eliyahuw (Elijah) also had a ministry that lasted for 3.5 years which is also 1,260 days.

In Daniel 12:11, the Angel told Daniel “….from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.”  

In all these scenarios, we can see that a biblical month should always 30 days. And since there are 12 months in a year, this means that a biblical year should be 360 days. However, since the days after the flood of Noah, the earth shifted, (causing it to be tilted), and thus, it wobbles as it rotates. The gravitational pull from the sun causes the earth to spin like a top. Subsequent tsunamis and earthquakes have also caused the earth’s rotation to shift, thus causing our celestial calendar to be broken.

This means that no matter what calendar reckoning we try to employ, the celestial bodies are not operating as they were originally created to do since the creation. Therefore, no amount of trying to solve this problem with a certain calendar is going to work. We have no choice but to wait for the earth’s rotation to be revert back to “The Days of Noah.” 

See this blog to learn more: Except Those Days Should Be Shortened

Below, is an illustration of a Lunar Sabbath Calendar. You will notice that they are keeping Shabbat on the eighth day, but calling it the seventh day. They ignore the first day of the month in the count, calling it “A New Moon Day.The 30th day of the month on this calendar is not being counted as “A work day, even though the previous day (the 29th) is a Sabbath. This means that the 30th is a second-day Sabbath, and the next new moon will also be counted as a third-day Sabbath! You can clearly see a huge problem with this reckoning. It means that the person following this calendar will be keeping three days in a row of Sabbaths, before they can go back to work!

As you can see, (from the illustration above), only 4-seven day cycles can fit into a 30-day month (leaving two extra days), that are then treated as “non-days” by Lunar Sabbatarians.

Yechezqel (Ezekiel) 46:1 Thus says YHWH Elohiym, “The gate of the inner court that looks toward the east shall be shut the six working days; but on the Sabbath it shall be opened, and in the day of the new moon it shall be opened. 

Lunar Sabbatarians use the above verse in an effort to show that the new moon is a Sabbath day. But that is not what this verse is saying. A new moon day is simply a festival of sounding the shofar, and ushering in a new month called “Rosh Chodesh” (head of the month). No place in scripture are we commanded to rest from work on a new moon day, unless it happens to fall on the weekly Shabbat.

The new moon is a day to offer up sacrifices, but there is no mention of resting from our regular work on a new moon day in scripture:

2nd Chronicles 2:4 Behold, I build an house to the name of YHWH my Elohiym, to dedicate it to him, and to burn before him sweet incense, and for the continual showbread, and for the burnt offerings morning and evening, on the sabbaths, and on the new moons, and on the solemn feasts of YHWH our Elohiym. This is an ordinance for ever to Yisrael. 

You will notice that burnt offerings are to be made at the following times:

1.) Morning & Evening Sacrifices (two times daily).
2.) On weekly Sabbaths (every seventh day).
3.) On New Moons (every 29.5 or 30 days).
4.) On Solemn Feasts (seven appointed feasts per year).

This means that new moons are distinct from the weekly Shabbat, and they are not counted as Sabbaths, (unless they happen to fall on a weekly Sabbath).

The Key to Understanding the Creator’s Calendar is in the “Shmita” or the Sabbatical Year Cycles

What is a Shmita? 

Shmita (Hebrew: שמיטה‎, literally release), also called the Sabbatical Year, is the seventh year of the seven-year agricultural cycle mandated by the Torah for the Land of Israel, and still observed in contemporary Judaism. During Shmita, the land is left to lie fallow and all agricultural activity—including plowing, planting, pruning and harvesting—is forbidden by Torah law. Other cultivation techniques—such as watering, fertilizing, weeding, spraying, trimming and mowing—may be performed as a preventative measure only, not to improve the growth of trees or plants. Additionally, any fruits which grow of their own accord are deemed hefker (ownerless) and may be picked by anyone. A variety of laws also apply to the sale, consumption and disposal of Shmita produce. A second aspect of Shmita concerns debts and loans. When the Shmita year ends, personal debts which are due during that year are considered nullified and forgiven. The Book of Leviticus promises bountiful harvests to those who observe the shmita and makes observance a test of religious faith.

The key to understanding the Creator’s Calendar is based on a seven-year sabbatical cycle. 

Since there are 360 days in a biblical year, if we divide that by seven, we get 51.42 Sabbaths in a year. This means we will only be able to keep 51 Sabbaths in a year, leaving four days that need to be carried over into the next year, (as part of a week). In the following year, we will have to add three days (to complete a full week), to the four days carried over from the previous year. With a Lunar Sabbath reckoning, there are only four Sabbaths per month, which works out to 48 Sabbaths in a year. Lunar Sabbatarians are therefore, wasting three Sabbaths every year, which is a violation of our covenant with YaHuWaH.

If we use a 360-day year, and multiply that by seven years, the result is 2,520 days:

360 X 7 = 2,520 days

This is an even number, (which is divisible by seven). Consequently, every seven years (shabuwah) is 2,520 days. What this means, is that we are only going to be able to keep 51 continuous Sabbaths in a year. However, there will be extra days that carry over into the next year. 

Why 4 days? Because at creation, YaHuWaH did not cause the sun, the moon, and the stars to begin their work as a Cosmic Calendar until the 4th day of creation. Just as he did not cause our Messiah to come to earth until the 4th Millennium (4th day). Our Messiah also died on the 4th day of the week (what we today call Wednesday).

Thus, our Messiah came in the 4th Millennium, and he died on the 4th day of the week; and he resurrected on the 7th day of the week, as the Sabbath was ending (see Matthew 28:1).

At the creation, YaHuWaH made the sun, the moon and the stars which are for time-keeping. Yahuwshuwa Messiah is time. He is called the “Aleph & Taw” (Alpha & Omega in Greek). He is “The one who was, and who is, and who is to come....the first and the last, the beginning and the ending.”  

Because he is time and light, it stands to reason that the sun, the moon, and the stars are symbols of him. These celestial luminaries were placed inside the firmament (what we call the vast expanse of space), on the fourth day of creation. In Malachi 4:2, Messiah is called “The sun of righteousness,” because he began his ministry in the fourth millennium. 

The sun was also assigned to give light to the earth “On the fourth day.” It is no wonder that he is called “The light of the world,
because he is a prophetic picture of the sun. In Psalm 19:5, the bridegroom is compared to the “The sun coming out of his chamber,” or in Hebrew, his “Wedding chuppah! ” 

See my other blog entitled: The Heavens Declare the Glory of Elohiym

Just as YaHuWaH “Rested on the seventh day of the week” (Genesis) 2:2, it is also no small wonder that he also “Rested in the tomb,” before being raised up on the seventh day of the week. 

Since Lunar Sabbatarians rest on 29th, the 30th, and the 1st, (and sometimes beyond while waiting for the new moon), the commandment to “Work for six days” following a seventh-day Sabbath is being violated! This mean they are resting for three days in a row (or more), and not working to support their families. If this was commanded, it would be justified. However, there is no such commandment, and in fact, Lunar Sabbatarians are jeopardizing their jobs, or their income, and thus be guilty of violating these other commandments:

2nd Thessalonians 3:10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.

1st Timothy 5:8 But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he has denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel (unbeliever). 

Seventy Times Seven  

In Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 18:21-22 Peter (Kefa) asked Yahuwshuwa,“how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?” 

Yahuwshuwa said unto him, “I say not unto you, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.”

What we are seeing here, is that the number 7 is a prophetic pattern for forgiveness. In Daniel 9 the Angel told Daniel that there would be “Seventy Weeks” determined for the Covenant people of Yisra’el. Now the Hebrew word for “weeks” is “shabuwah” which can mean a literal 7-day week, or it can mean a 7-year sabbatical. 

70 X 7 years = 490 years for the prophecy:

Daniel 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon your people and upon your holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.  


As we can see, there are six goals that YaHuWaH intends to accomplish within these 490 years, and it has to do with forgiveness!

70 X 7 = Forgiveness!  

Therefore, the pattern for time-keeping and prophecy, must follow the same pattern, using equations that are divisible by 7’s.

We cannot fit the number “7” into a 30-day month evenly:

30 ÷ 7 = 4.28 Sabbaths per month

We cannot fit the number “7” into a 360-day year evenly:

360 ÷51.4 Sabbaths per year

The only way to render time keeping accurately is to always start with a number that is divisible by “7.”

Hence we must begin with a Shmita or a Sabbatical Cycle:

7 years X 360 days = 2,520 days

2,520 days ÷ 7 days = 360 Sabbaths in a Sabbatical Cycle.

You will notice that every seven years, we are keeping an entire year of “Land Sabbath” or a Sabbatical Year (Leviticus 25). There are 360 degrees in a perfect circle (or a circuit), therefore, this a unit of measure that we should be using to evenly divide the number of Sabbaths within a Sabbatical Cycle.

Moving on from there, every 49 years is a Shabuwah, therefore, the  50th year is a Jubilee Year.

How many Sabbaths do we have within a Shabuwah?

Every 49 years there are 2,520 Sabbaths that we keep.

Everything related to “covenant” is divisible by seven (with nothing left over). Those are the units of measure that we use---Shabuwah’s (7 year Sabbatical Cycles) and 49 year Jubilee Cycles.

This idea of trying to fit an even number of Sabbaths into a 30-day month or a 360-day year is not going to work, because we are supposed to be thinking in terms of Shabuwah! (7 & 49 year cycles)!

In Genesis 6, we are told that man’s days shall be 120 years. But the  word for “year” (shanah) can also be translated as “An age,” or “A Jubilee.”

If we multiply a 50 years by 120 years, we come to the 6,000th year for the end of the age (as we know it). This will commence the 7,000th year from creation, called the Sabbath Millennium, when Messiah returns for his bride.

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 6:3 And YHWH said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.  

The word for “years” here is a Hebrew word that can mean an age or a revolution of time:

#8141 shaneh shaw-neh’ (in plura or (feminine) shanah {shaw-naw}; from 8138; a year (as a revolution of time):--+ whole age, X long, + old, year(X -ly).

We are commanded to keep the Sabbatical Years:

Wayyikra (Leviticus) 25:4 But in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest unto the land, a sabbath for YHWH: you shall neither sow your field, nor prune your vineyard.

Debariym (Deuteronomy) 15:1 At the end of every seven years you shall make a release.

Debariym (Deuteronomy) 31:10 And Moshe commanded them, saying, At the end of every seven years, in the solemnity of the year of release, in the feast of tabernacles.

Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah) 34:14 At the end of seven years let you go every man his brother a Hebrew, which has been sold unto you; and when he has served you six years, you shall let him go free from you: but your fathers hearkened (listened) not unto me, neither inclined their ear.

What are we seeing here in these verses? We are seeing that if we keep the Sabbath every seventh day (and not according to a Lunar Sabbath reckoning), we are going to be keeping 360 Sabbaths every  years. This is equivalent to one full year of the land resting. This means that the slave who works for 6 years is to be released in the 7th year. The fact that there are 360 Sabbaths in a 7-year cycle means that a full year’s worth of days (360) is for the release of debts and slaves.

Therefore, if we can fit 7 days into 7 years, we come up even. We can also fit 7 years into 49 years, and we come up even again, before we count the 50th Jubilee Year!

This is the only way to keep the Sabbath, (every seventh day continuously), without having a 2-3-day wait for the next new moon each month.

The weekly Sabbaths should run their course on a Shmita Cycle (Sabbatical year) cycle.

That means that we are not supposed to use up any extra days at the end of the month by not working. We are supposed to carry those extra days over into each new month, and into each new year, so that there is a continuous flow of seven days (without any extra days at the end of the month). YaHuWaH’s Calendar is perfect, therefore, there are no extra days that are nebulous, or unaccounted for. 

You must keep an even amount of Sabbaths to take you to the 50 years of Jubilee!

Wayyikra (Leviticus) 25:8-9 And you shall number seven sabbaths of years unto you, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto you forty and nine years. Then shall you cause the trumpet of the jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall you make the trumpet sound throughout all your land.

Therefore, what is the judgment for the House of Yisra’el when they violated all of those weekly Sabbaths and seven-year cycles? There are curses listed in Leviticus 25-26 for violating or missing all these Sabbaths!

A Lunar Sabbath Reckoning Destroys the Prophetic Shadow Picture of our Messiah as the Red Heifer, his Crucifixion & Resurrection

There are many mathematical discrepancies with a Lunar Sabbath reckoning (as we have already seen). But one huge error, is that it undercuts the crucifixion and resurrection of our Messiah. Additionally, we are shown in Numbers 19, a hint of our Messiah fulfilling the ordinance of the Red Heifer. On the third day (after being sacrificed on the tree), our Messiah resurrected from the dead, but it was the seventh day of the week, the weekly Shabbat! This explains why he calls himself “Master of the Sabbath” in three gospel accounts (Matthew, Mark, and Luke).

Bamidbar (Numbers) 19:12 He shall purify himself with it on the third day, and on the seventh day he shall be clean: but if he purify not himself the third day, then the seventh day he shall not be clean. 

To learn more about how our Messiah fulfilled the pattern of the Red Heifer, see my other blog: The Red Heifer Ordinance Fulfilled in Messiah

Yahuwshuwa Messiah was crucified on the 4th day of the week (what we now call Wednesday), and this was on the 14th day of the month Abib on Passover. He died at 3:00 p.m. that evening (the ninth hour of the day, according to Matthew 27:25). He was buried on the eve of a High Sabbath (Unleavened Bread); and this was the 15th day of the month of Abib (once the sun went down, the date changed from the 14th of Abib to the 15th). 

This means he hung on the tree all day on the 14th of Abib (Passover). He was in the tomb by the 15th of Abib (Unleavened Bread), which would have been the fifth day of the week (what we know as Thursday). The sixth day of the week (what we call Friday) was on the 16th of Abib. By sundown on the 16th of Abib, it became the 17th of Abib, the weekly Shabbath. He resurrected later that evening (on the 17th of Abib), just before sundown on Shabbath, before it became the 18th of Abib. 

It clearly says in Matthew 28:1 that it was “The end of the Sabbath” when the women went the first time, and found that the stone had been rolled away. Modern translations say “Early Sunday morning,” rather than “The end of the Sabbath.” But if we look at the Aramaic and the Greek text for Matthew 28:1 it clearly says “Opse de Shabbaton” which means “End of the Sabbath.”  

If he rose at the end of the 17th day, and it was “The end of the Sabbath” (according to Matthew 28:1), and a typical Lunar Sabbath falls on the 15th day of the month, then it is clear that this reckoning of Sabbath-keeping is found to be false. Even by the alternative reckoning, for those that observe the 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th, it still does not work.

Messiah resurrected before the end of the Sabbath according to Matthew 28:1. Other places in the gospels, the women went back to the tomb a second time on the first “day” of the week. But in Matthew 28:1 the Greek and Aramaic both confirm that it was the end of the seventh day “Opse de Shabbaton”  means “End of the sabbath,” when the women went back to the tomb the first time, and saw the stone rolled away. 

Restoring this passage as it is written in the Greek Textus Receptus & Aramaic Peshitta:

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 28:

In the end of the Sabbath, as it began to draw on toward the first of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.

2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of YHWH descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

Erroneously translated in the King James Version & Modern Translations:

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 28:  

In the end of the Sabbath as it began to dawn [epiphosko, to draw on] toward the first [day] of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.

2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

Most people assume that he resurrected on Sunday morning, because the word for “dawn” in the King James Version is a mistranslation. The Greek word there for “dawn” is the equivalent of a word in Hebrew that means “A mixture of light and darkness.” Hence, the word should really be “dusk,” as the sun was going down.

The Strong’s Hebrew Concordance reveals that at sundown, the “dawning of the day” is at twilight or dusk:

#5399 nesheph neh-shef from 5398; properly, a breeze, i.e. (by implication) dusk (when the evening breeze prevails):--dark, dawning of the day (morning), night, twilight.


The Greek words are as follows:

#2020. epiphosko ep-ee-foce’-ko a form of 2017; to begin to grow light:--begin to dawn, X draw on.

#2017. epiphauo ep-ee-fow’-o a form of 2014; to illuminate (figuratively):--give light.

You can see why the English translators thought that the word should be “dawn” (as in early in the morning), just before sunrise, but the word epiphosko can mean “To draw on,” and it can also mean “The beginning of something,” as in “The dawning of a new era.” Hence, for something to “dawn” means that something new is approaching. The term is much broader than the English word we use to describe “sunrise.”

Murdock’s Translation on e-sword has it translated correctly:

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 28:1 And in the evening of the Sabbath as it was dusk, as the first (day) of the week began to dawn, came Mary of Magdala and the other Mary, to view the sepulcher.

You will notice that Murdock is calling this time of day “dusk” but he is saying that the “week” (Sabbaton in Greek) was beginning to “dawn” or to “draw on.” In other words it was not sunrise, but it was the end of the Sabbath at sundown, as the new week was approaching (dawning).

The MRC Translation on e-sword translates it like this:

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 28:1 Now late on the Shabbat, as it began to draw toward the first of the week, Miriam of Magdala and the other Miriam went to look at the grave.

Andrew Gabriel Roth who translated the Aramaic Peshitta also agrees with this interpretation. Here is what he says:

“Aramaic literally reads ‘b’ramsha din b’shabata’ or ‘in the evening of the shabbat.’ What is true for dawning is also true for setting in the sense of ‘conclusion’ as is meant here....Murdock and Etheridge also confirm this idiomatic reading in their translations.”

Something that one must understand, is that the calendar date changes at sunset each day--- not at midnight. It was Pope Gregory who made the date change at midnight in 1532 C.E., thus fulfilling the role of the beast in Daniel 7:23-25. “The beast shall think to change times and laws...”  The new day was “dawning” at sunset and the word “day” here is in italics in the King James Version. Whenever you see a word in italics in the KJV that means it was not there originally.

The verse should read like this in the King James Version:

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 28:

1 In the end of the Sabbath  as it began to draw on toward the first of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.

2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of YHWH descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

Now think about this logically. The Sabbath ends at sundown on the seventh day, right? It says that it was “The end of the Sabbath,” how in the world could it be early on Sunday morning? 

It was still approaching the end of the Sabbath on the seventh day before sundown. Hence, when it says “Towards the first of the week,” it is telling us that on the evening of the seventh day, (before sundown), the first of the week had not arrived yet. However, sundown was fast approaching, which would then be counted as “The first day of the week,” (even though it was nighttime). This period is known as “Havdalah” in Hebrew which means “Exiting the Sabbath.”

One of the things that I like about the King James Version, is that it italicizes words that were not originally there in the text. The word “day” is in italics here:

Yahuwchanon (John) 20:1 The first (day) of the week comes Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and sees the stone taken away from the sepulchre.

Notice that it was “yet dark” and the word “day” was not there in the original text.

Hence it does not say “The first day of the week,” it says “The first of the week,” meaning the first calendar date of the week. Yahuwshuwa said in John 11:9 that there are 12 hours in a day.

Did you ever wonder why our Messiah made a point of separating 3 days from 3 nights? If a “day” is 24 hours long, why did he not say that he would be in the heart of the earth for “Three days?” Why did he make a point of saying “Three days & three nights?”

The word Greek word for “half” in Revelation 11:11 is a word that means “a part of” something, and not necessarily “fifty percent of something.” 

Here is the Greek word for “half:”

#2255. hemisu hay’-mee-soo neuter of a derivative from an inseparable prefix akin to 260 (through the idea of partition involved in connection) and meaning semi-; (as noun) half:--half.

Chazown (Revelation) 11:11 And after three days and an half the spirit of life from Elohiym entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.

If scripture sets a precedence of defining a “half of a day” as only a part of a day, (and it does not round off the partition of the day to a full day), then one cannot use the full day of Wednesday (Messiah’s crucifixion) to mean the entire “day one” of his “Three days and three nights” prophecy. The first “day” of this prophecy must then commence after sundown on the fourteenth of Abib, which then became the 15th of Abib. This means we begin the count at sundown, just after he was buried. The last three hours of the 14th of Abib (from the time he died, until sundown), we do not use in the count.

This means 6-12 hour cycles:

Fourth day of the week: 14th of Abib 3:00 p.m. - sundown = 1/2 of a day.

Fifth day of the week: 14th of Abib @ sundown became the 15th of Abib - evening & morning #1 (twelve hours of night and twelve hours of day).

Sixth day of the week: 15th of Abib @ sundown became the 16th of Abib - evening and morning #2 (twelve hours of night and twelve hours of day).

Seventh day of the week: 16th of Abib @ sundown became the 17th of Abib - evening and morning #3 (twelve hours of night and twelve hours of day).

Grand Total = 3 days & 3 nights (and a half of a day on Wednesday like the 2 witnesses in Revelation 11).

On the 17th of Abib (just as the Sabbath was ending), is when the women were able to go to the tomb. The Roman Soldiers were ordered to stand guard until the end of a three-day watch. Therefore, the women would have been arrested, had they gone to the tomb sooner. By the time the women arrived, the stone had already been rolled away (earlier that day), and the malak (angel) was there waiting to give them the good news!

Messiah resurrected before the end of Sabbath, while it was still daylight! HalleluYah! He is Master (Lord) of the Sabbath!

There are no two Lunar Sabbatarians who can agree on when Messiah was crucified, buried, and resurrected. Each of them have a different reckoning in an attempt to make it fit with their reckoning,

One Lunar Sabbatarian tried to suggest that Yahuwshuwa was crucified on the 13th of Abib citing that it was “The preparation day” before the Passover. I had to show him his error by citing the following scriptures:

Wayyiqra (Leviticus) 23:5 In the fourteenth day of the first month at evening is YHWHs Pesach (Passover). 

Yahuwchanon (John) 19:31 The Yahuwdiym (Jews) therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.

Yahuwchanon (John) 19:42 There laid they Yahuwshuwa therefore because of the Yahuwdiym (Jews) preparation day; for the sepulchre was near at hand.

This gentleman tried to tell me that the lamb was always slaughtered on the 13th of the first month, in contrast to what is written:

2nd Chronicles 35:1 Moreover Josiah kept a Passover unto YHWH in Jerusalem: and they killed the Passover on the fourteenth day of the first month.

Now he is back to “square one” trying to fit a square peg into a round hole with his Lunar Sabbath error. Another Lunar Sabbatarian tried to tell me that Yahuwshuwa was NOT three days and three nights in the heart of the earth! 

He cited only the account in the book of Luke where it mentions the second time that the women went back to the tomb “On the first day of the week.” The only problem is, the word “day” is italicize in all  those verses in Luke’s gospel, therefore, the word “day” was not there! And this means it was “The first of the week” which commences at sundown on the seventh day of the week (Saturday evening).

This is called Havdalah” in Hebrew (exiting the Sabbath). Furthermore, just because the women went to the tomb early on the first [day] of the week a second time (after going there the night before at sundown), does not prove that Messiah resurrected on the first [day] of the week. It simply means that he was long gone by the time that the women went to the tomb.

Where is the Heart of the Earth?

Another Lunar Sabbatarian, (in an effort to account for the “Three days and three nights”),  explainted to me that “The heart of the earth” is Jerusalem (not the underworld). This gentleman said that the count of “Three days and three nights” began the night our Messiah was arrested while he was still alive!

The problem with that theory, is that Messiah was already in Jerusalem long before he was arrested. So how is it that he suddenly was counting the days he was in Jerusalem from when he was arrested?

See my other blog entitled: Where Do Redeemed Souls Go When They Die?

The “Heart of the earth” is obviously what is mentioned on Ephesians 4:8-9 as “The lowest parts of the earth,” where he redeemed those who were in Abraham’s Bosom (see Luke 16). King David even prophesied of Yahuwshuwa being in the heart of the earth:

Tehilliym (Psalm) 16:10 For you will not leave my soul in hell (sheol); neither will you suffer your Holy One to see corruption.

Maaseh Shlichiym (Acts) 2:27 Because you will not leave my soul in hell (sheol), neither will you suffer your Holy One to see corruption.

Where is this place called “Sheol” in Hebrew?

#7585 sh’owl sheh-ole’ or shol {sheh-ole’}; from 7592; Hades or the world of the dead (as if a subterranean retreat), including its accessories and inmates:--grave, hell, pit.

How do we know that he went into Sheol for three days and three nights?

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 12:40 For as Yownah (Jonah) was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

Ephsiym (Ephesians) 4:

8 Wherefore he says, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.

9 Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?

Here, it clearly says that he “descended” into the lower parts of the earth. Where is the lower parts of the earth?

1st Keefa (Peter) 3:18-20: 

18 For Mashiyach (Messiah) also has once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to Elohiym, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Ruwach (Spirit).

19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; 

Where is prison? It is in Sheol, as the prophecy states in Psalms 16:10 and Acts 2:27. 

The phrase “heart of the earth” represents death and the grave---not Jerusalem. How do we know? The similarities between Jonah’s three days and three nights in the whale’s belly is strikingly similar to the prophecies of our Messiah in Psalms 22 & Isaiah 53.

Yownah (Jonah) 1:17 Now YHWH had prepared a great fish to swallow up Yownah. And Yownah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.

Yownah (Jonah) 2:1-3:

Then Yownah prayed unto YHWH his Elohiym out of the fish’s belly,

And said, I cried by reason of my affliction unto YHWH, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and you heard my voice.

For you had cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all your billows and your waves passed over me.

*Note: a reference to Passover? (Reference Psalms 22:5, 10 &14)

Yownah (Jonah) 2:4 Then I said, I am cast out of your sight yet I will look again toward your holy temple.

*Note: could this be a reference to when the Father hid his face from Yahuwshuwa at his crucifixion?

Yownah (Jonah) 2:5 The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head.

*Note: The crown of thorns on Yahuwshuwa were like the weeds around Yownah’s head!

Yownah (Jonah) 2:6 I went down to the bottoms of the mountainsthe earth with her bars was about me forever: yet have you brought up my life from corruption, O YHWH my Elohiym.

*Note: another reference to Messiah being preserved from corruption (Psalm 16:10, Acts 2:27).

Yownah (Jonah) 2:7 When my soul fainted within me I remembered YHWH: and my prayer came in unto you, into your holy temple.

*Note: Messiah cried out to Elohiym in the heavenly temple while he was dying on the tree.

Yownah (Jonah) 2:8 They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.

Yownah (Jonah) 2:9 But I will sacrifice unto you with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of YHWH.

*Note: Messiah was the sacrifice, and he paid the sins for the broken wedding vows of Yisra’el.

Yownah (Jonah) 2:10 And YHWH spoke unto the fish, and it vomited out Yownah upon the dry land.

*Note: YaHuWaH spoke, and the earth vomited out Yahuwshuwa    from the grave!

The Saturn’s Day Argument

Another weak argument that Lunar Sabbatarians use to try to disprove our current seventh day Sabbath, is to call it Saturn’s Day, (named after Saturn). Therefore, they say that it cannot be the true Sabbath. However, no matter what day of the week they are keeping the Sabbath, it is always going to be named after a pagan deity: 

The First Day: Sunday was named after the sun-god.
The Second Day: Monday was named after the moon-goddess.
The Third Day: Tuesday was named after the god Tyr.
The Fourth Day: Wednesday was named after the god Odin.
The Fifth Day: Thursday was named after the god Thor.
The Sixth Day: Friday was named after the god Frigga.
The Seventh Day: Saturday was named after the god Saturn.

It is a ridiculous argument to say that those who keep Shabbat every seventh day (on Saturday) are keeping Saturn’s Day. At the creation, YaHuWaH already sanctified the seventh day,calling it holy!It wasnt until many years later that the heathens in the nations gave the seventh day of the week, a new name!

Even in Spanish, the seventh day of the week is Sabado, and in Italian it is Sabato. In Hebrew it is Shabbat.

After some research, I found out that early civilizations used a lunar calendrical system. The “Lunar Sabbatarians” are following the ancient Sumerian calendar of the heathens:



Doing the same research as I have done, you will discover that the Ancient Sumerians celebrated the same pagan days of rest, (and used the very same terminology), by rendering leftover extra days as “non-days.” Most Lunar Sabbatarians celebrate their Sabbaths on the 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th, with the remaining days as “non-days.” It’s exactly the same as the Sumerians. The Assyrio-Babylonian calendar is nearly identical as the Sumerian’s. Both point out that they are geared around moon worship.

The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia talks about the probable origins of “Lunar Sabbath.” You can read for yourself on pages 590-591 concerning Sabbath. Unlike what the Lunar Sabbatarians say, those two pages completely debunk the false statements of those making the claim that the Jewish Encyclopedia supports their idea. It does not.

In the final analysis, we can see that there are many discrepancies with the Lunar Sabbath reckoning. If you are still adhering to this method of keeping Shabbath, I pray that you repent, and correct the error before it is too late. There are curses for not keeping the Sabbaths correctly in Leviticus 26. 

Wayyiqra (Leviticus) 26:2 You shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am YHWH.
