Did YAHUSHA Keep The Solar or Lunar Calendar?


Did YAHUSHA Keep The Solar or Lunar Calendar?

By rymcovenant.net

Important! The Eternal Calendar of YaHuWaH has zero lunar connections. It is NOT a lunar/solar calendar. This is a Mazzaroth facilitated LIGHT BASED calendar!

Have we applied sufficient attention to the documentations addressing the lunar based calendar from the Testimonies of the Tanakh?

Are there witness texts within the Scriptures that will give us a clear view of the ‘celestial vs lunar calendar’ controversy that we can connect with the life of Yahusha?

Will the life of Yahusha on this earth reveal knowledge on this highly contentious subject?

Was Yahusha in agreement with the TIMING of the Feasts of the Yahudim?

The book of John gives us a great place to begin.

“And after this יהושע was walking in Galil, for He did not wish to walk in Yehuḏah, because the Yahuḏim were seeking to kill Him. And the festival of the Yahuḏim was near, the Festival of Sukkot. So His brothers said to Him, ‘Get away from here and go into Yahuḏah, so that Your taught ones also see the works that You are doing. For no one acts in secret while he himself seeks to be known openly. If You do these works, show Yourself to the world.” Yoḥanan (John) 7:1-4

Question with a clue – Why do the Scriptures document the Feast of the Yahudim?

Leviticus tells us very clearly to Whom the Feasts and Festivals belong.

Why then do the Scriptures record this festival as one that belongs to the Yahudim?

Yahusha’s Brothers’ Unbelief

“For even His brothers did not believe in Him. יהושע therefore said to them, “My time [YaHuWaH’s Eternal Calendar] has not yet come, but YOUR time [the lunar reckoned calendar] is always ready.” Yoḥanan (John) 7:5-6

Always – through lunar manipulation!

Question: Is it possible that the calendar of the 2nd Temple era was designed and adjusted according to the declared belief standards of the Yahudim – very similar to the lunar-solar calendar of today?

Important Questions:

Why did Yahusha declare the Feast of the Yahudim to His brothers as ‘YOUR’ time?

Yahusha is the One Who inspired the documentation within the Tanakh. Is it likely that we will find the same style of terminology used there too?


Why on earth would Yahusha intentionally distance Himself from a Feast that was originally commanded by YaHuWaH?


Is not the Feast of Sukkot found in Exodus 23:16?


Is not the same Festival required of ALL MALES, under statute command?


Your Time = Your Appointed Times

Yahusha spoke to His brothers and told them that THEIR TIME was ready. But His Time was not yet! What did Yahusha mean by this? Let’s look into Isaiah’s writings.

“When you come to appear before Me, who has required this from your hand, to trample My courtyards?” Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 1:12

Paraphrased: Who has taught you to desecrate My Principles?

“Stop bringing futile offerings, incense, it is an abomination to Me. New Moons, Sabbaths, the calling of gatherings – I am unable to bear unrighteousness and assembly.” Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 1:13

What was it about these different Sabbaths and assemblies that YaHuWaH emphatically despised?

Isaiah Continued

“My being hates YOUR New Moons and YOUR appointed times, they are a trouble to Me, I am weary of bearing them. “And when you spread out your hands, I hide My eyes from you; even though you make many prayers, I do not hear. Your hands have become filled with blood. “Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. Stop doing evil!” Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 1:14-16


What characteristic personalized THEIR Sabbaths, assemblies, a ‘New Moon’ and appointed times, that was such a SERIOUS EVIL OFFENSE to YaHuWaH?


From WHOM did this evil characteristic derive?


‘Your’ – in Amos

“I have hated, I have despised YOUR festivals, and I am not pleased with YOUR assemblies.” Amos 5:21

Tell me please – were the Yisraelites observing Feasts and Festivals that were opposed to the command within the Eternal Covenant?

“And it shall be in that day,” declares the Master יהוה, “that I shall cause the sun to go down at noon, and shall darken the earth on a day of brightness, and shall turn YOUR festivals into mourning, and all YOUR songs into lamentation, and bring sackcloth on all loins, and baldness on every head, and shall make it like mourning for an only son, and its end like a day of bitterness.” Amos 8:9-10

‘Your’ – in Malachi

“See, I shall rebuke your seed, and scatter dung before your faces, the dung of YOUR festivals. And you shall be taken away with it.” Mal’aḵi (Malachi) 2:3

Will we receive the message that there is something profoundly sinister about these events that Yahusha will have absolutely nothing to do with?

Why does He ‘pin’ these events on humans? YaHuWaH did after all command His followers to observe the Feasts and Festival assemblies!

Will we be able to discern a characteristic which Yahusha displayed in His life (pertaining to His observance of the Feasts), as a profound declaration supported by His actions? Will His actions provide a clue to this mystery?

Back to Yahusha’s Conversation with His brothers

“It is impossible for the world to hate you, but it hates Me because I bear witness of it, [from a LIGHT based calendar viewpoint] that its [the 2nd Temple era traditional teachings] works are wicked. “You go up to this festival. I am not yet going up to this festival, for MY TIME [Eternal Calendar for Sukkot] has not yet been filled.” Yoḥanan (John) 7:7-8

The 15th of Tishri (7th months) had not arrived yet, according to the Tequfah based Eternal Calendar written in the Torah.

Why should Yahusha go and observe the Sukkot Festival when the Torah appointed Qodesh (Set-Apart) LIGHT based designated time for Sukkot had not arrived?

Yahusha Witnesses? HOW?

Yahusha tells us in no uncertain terms –

I am, and will, give you evidence through My Witness of this insidious evil?

When Yahusha actually physically witnesses to a situation, what is it that you would expect to notice? Would a very clear DISCERNABLE DISCREPANCY between the tradition of the Pharisees and the Torah Truth be exposed to us?

Could Yahusha’s witness extend even to the very physical example? Or will His witness pass unnoticed over our heads?

Yahusha refrains from going….

“And having said this to them, He stayed in Galil.” Yoḥanan (John) 7:9

Is this verse indicating to us that Yahusha had an exemption from being required to observe the statues and attend the Feasts of YaHuWaH?

It appears on the surface that Yahusha was ignoring the statute based command that ALL MALES need to present themselves before YaHuWaH at the Appointed Times – Moedim!

Three times in the year all your males are to appear before the Master יהוה.” Shemoth (Exodus) 23:17

Is there any place in the Scriptures where we learn that Yahusha need not observe the will of His Father? What factor gave Yahusha the authority to ‘skip out’ from presenting Himself to the Father on the first of Sukkot?

Yahusha’s next action – His WITNESS

But when His brothers had gone up to the festival, then He also went up, not openly, but as it were in secret. Yoḥanan (John) 7:10

At the Feast, we learn in verses 11-12, the Yahudim were wondering where Yahusha was and were searching for Him.

The Yahudim understood the rule that ALL MALES WERE TO PRESENT THEMSELVES BEFORE YAHUWAH THREE TIMES PER YEAR, as written in Exodus 23:17. They were fully expecting Yahusha to observe their Feast.

Where was Yahusha haMashiach? Was Yahusha Witnessing? When did Yahusha arrive at the Feast?

Feast of the Yahudim

Tishri the 7th Month; the Eight Days of Sukkot

Yahusha – AWOL from YaHuWaH’s Feast?

To this date there has not been a text found advising us that Yahusha was exempt from obeying Exodus 23:16-17!

“And the Festival of the Harvest, the first-fruits of your labours which you have sown in the field; and the Festival of the Ingathering at the outgoing of the year, when you have gathered in the fruit of your labours from the field. “Three times in the year ALL your males are to appear before the Master יהוה.” Shemoth (Exodus) 23:16-17

What Scriptural right did Yahusha have to be absent from the first Sabbath of Sukkot?

Did Yahusha arrive LATE?

“And about the MIDDLE of the festival יהושע went up into the Set-apart Place, and He was teaching.” Yoḥanan (John) 7:14

What could possibly be Yahusha’s reasoning for arriving in the middle of the Festival?

What Scriptural Calendar Reckoning could Yahusha cite that would still reckon Him SINLESS, in alignment with YaHuWaH’s will and justify being absent for the first part of the Yahudim Feast?

Yahusha Arrives ‘Late’ – But Right ‘On Time!’

Yahusha Arrives ‘Late’ – But Very ‘On Time!’

Yahusha’s Legal Right!

“You go up to this festival. I am not yet going up to this festival, for My time has not yet been filled.” Yoḥanan (John) 7:8

Where do we find Yahusha’s Time? In the Eternal Calendar in Torah!

Melchizedek Witness or Lunar Confusion?

Yahusha’s Time – Leviticus 23

“Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, saying, ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you have a rest, a remembrance of Teru‛ah,” Wayyiqra (Leviticus) 23:24

“Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, saying, ‘On the fifteenth day of this seventh month is the Festival of Sukkot for seven days to יהוה.” Wayyiqra (Leviticus) 23:34

When Yahusha said – For My Time has not yet been filled…. It is these times found in the Torah that must be fulfilled completely.

Determining the Start of the Year

To determine the 7th month correctly, the very first day of the year must be correctly ascertained first.


There are 10 verses in the Tanakh that indicate very clearly what celestial event maintains YaHuWaH’s worship year. One is Exodus 34:22 in which the autumnal Tequfah (equinox) signals final events of YaHuWaH’s worship calendar year.


6 Months prior is the spring Tequfah (equinox) and consequently the start of the new year. IF this is not realized specifically by the Torah instructions, the Feasts and Festivals will be on YaHuWaH’s Qodesh (Set-Apart) Calendar.


Yahusha was living out the Torah and His Time was according to the Tequfah (equinox) system for determining the new year.


The Pharisees (Yahudim) of the 2nd Temple era were observing their ‘month-start’ [for the appointed times] by the lunar calculations.


Yahusha could not and would not observe the Feasts of YaHuWaH that were placed on a lunar based calendar.


Yahusha declares His METHOD of Witnessing

“Yahusha answered them, “I have told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father’s Name, they bear witness concerning Me. But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you. “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.” Yoḥanan (John) 10:25-27

Did Yahusha WITNESS AGAINST the lunar based worship system of the 2nd Temple era?

From where did Yahusha receive His DIRECTIVES?

Yahusha – a Witness for YaHuWaH

How can we know that Yahusha is testifying for YaHuWaH’s will?


Yahusha was teaching the people and they were amazed at the depth of understanding being delivered to them.


What was His response to their inquiry of where He received His knowledge?


“Yahusha answered them and said, “My teaching is not Mine, but His who sent Me.” Yoḥanan (John) 7:16

Can we verify this from the Torah?

Your Clue – YaHuWaH speaks to Mosheh

“I shall raise up for them a Prophet like you out of the midst of their brothers. And I shall put My Words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. And it shall be, the man who does not listen to My Words which He speaks in My Name, I require it of him.” Deḇarim (Deuteronomy) 18:18-19

With this information in mind, when Yahusha told His brother – ‘My Time has not yet come…’ from Whom did these words originate?

Teaching by example, or just simple conversation?

When Yahusha told His brother – ‘My Time has not yet come…’ is it possible He was alluding to an imposter calendar issue which was being enforced by the high priest at that time? Would that also be the imposter high priest that later tore his faulty priestly garment?!

Was Yahusha TEACHING His brothers with WORDS instilled in Him from YaHuWaH (Deut 18:18) and also by walking out His PHYSICAL EXAMPLE? Let’s read His words further in the same conversation with His brothers –

“If anyone desires to do His desire, he shall know concerning the teaching, whether it is from Elohim, or whether I speak from Myself. “He who speaks from himself is seeking his own esteem, but He who seeks the esteem of the One who sent Him is true, and no unrighteousness is in Him.” Yoḥanan (John) 7:17-18

Yahusha’s Example

“And beginning at Mosheh [Torah] and all the Prophets, He was explaining to them in all the Scriptures the matters concerning Himself.” Luqas (Luke) 24:27

Yahusha tell us (John 7:17) if we truly desire to know His ways we will be given that understanding.

So if we are truly desiring to be on the correct Worship Calendar of YaHuWaH, would it be appropriate to search the Torah for information exposing ‘MY TIME’? (Reference to John 7:6)

Or should we just accept the Rabbinical Lunar/Solar calendar named the ‘Hebraic Calendar’ which is formulated and promoted by Judaism today?

Yahusha’s HAMMER

“Did not Mosheh give you the Torah? Yet not one of you DOES the Torah! Why do you seek to kill Me?” Yoḥanan (John) 7:19

Note: ‘DOES’ is an action word, not a belief value. Physical steps must be taken to fulfill this word. What physical action were the Pharisees either innocently or intentionally going afoul with by observing their Feasts (the Feasts of the Yahudim)?

Read also Matthew 5:20. What is it that we need to be doing that ‘exceeds’ that of the Scribes and Pharisees?

What declaration from Yahusha should send red flags blazing into the sky before our eyes?

The Key of Knowledge Removed!

“Woe to you learned in the Torah, because you took away the key of knowledge. You did not enter in yourselves, and those who were entering in you hindered.” Luqas (Luke) 11:52

The context of this conversation from Yahusha to His brothers in John 7 is timing. What timing characteristic that the Scribes and Pharisees were observing had efficiently defiled the Torah?

Here in Luke 11 Yahusha is outlining some of the things where the Pharisees are going astray from the Word.

Question: What is the ‘key to knowledge’ that Yahusha was referencing?

A key is the vital piece of information that opens the portal to knowledge. Where is the Scriptures do we find a description of infinite knowledge?

YaHuWaH tells us where to find KNOWLEDGE.

“The heavens are proclaiming the esteem of Ěl; And the expanse is declaring the work of His hand. Day to day pours forth speech, And night to night reveals knowledge. THE MAZZAROTH There is no speech, and there are no words, Their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, And their words to the end of the world. In them He set up a tent for the sun, And it is like a bridegroom coming out of his room, It rejoices like a strong man to run the path. Its rising is from one end of the heavens, And its circuit to the other end; And naught is hidden from its heat.” Tehillim (Psalms) 19:1-6

What KNOWLEDGE are we searching for?

THE MAZZAROTH contains the full accurate outline in details, of this Knowledge; the complete Plan of Salvation!

The Mazzaroth’s Tequfah is the ‘centering pin’ which determines the start of YaHuWaH’s new worship year. The Tequfah is the ultra-specific celestial event which places us on the correct schedule to receive the full blessings of YaHuWaH! When we accept the removal of the Tequfah, (YaHuWaH’s ‘centering pin of timing’) and we follow along in the pagan lunar traditions, we then have placed ourselves on the Adversary’s schedule. Remember, the Dragon claimed in Isaiah 14:13-14 that he would control the Moedim. By accepting the lunar traditions, we accept the Dragon’s usurped authority!


Why is the sun given prominence by receiving a special designated DWELLING PLACE (Psalms 19:4) within the Master Time Clock – The Mazzaroth – of YaHuWaH?


The sun’s tabernacle or DWELLING PLACE in the Mazzaroth is the start and the ending point of its circuit in the heavens – the Tequfah.


We have been taught that the moon is the guiding light to start the Worship year of YaHuWaH. Why then is there no mention of this ‘supposed all important figure’ in the Mazzaroth – which is the Ultimate Eternal Master Time Clock of YaHuWaH?


Is it possible that the wool has been pulled over our eyes – AGAIN?


The Mazzaroth constellations = Infinite Knowledge

“Do you bind the bands of Kimah [Pleiadies], or loosen the cords of Kesil [Orion]? Do you bring out the constellations [Mazzaroth] in its season? Or do you lead the Bear [Arcturus] with its sons?” Iyoḇ (Job) 38:31-32

The Mazzaroth is the Master Time Clock of YaHuWaH! He used this system of determining time at the start of the Hebrew nation – see Genesis 17, 18 and 21:2. YaHuWaH does not change.

The exodus of the Yisraelites from Mitsrayim (Egypt) was timed by the Appointed Times (Moedim) which is governed by the Mazzaroth.

The entire plan of Salvation within the Mazzaroth Constellations is written in the sky every 24 hours.

Keys to Knowledge – Mazzaroth’s Rulership

Immediately after Job writes about the Mazzaroth in verses 31 and 32, he asks –

“Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?” Job 38:33 KJV

“Do you know the laws of the heavens? Or do you set their rule over the earth?” Iyoḇ (Job) 38:33 TS2009

Job references the Mazzaroth, then within a question clearly indicates of their commission for dominion over the earth! 

What Dominion?

The Mazzaroth has absolute governing control as the commissioned TIME CLOCK of YaHuWaH over eternity.

Job Identifies the Light of the Moon!

“See, even the moon does not shine, and the stars have not been flawless in His eyes,” Iyoḇ (Job) 25:5

Celestial Position Comparison

The Scriptures (Psalms 19:4) inform us that the sun has been given a designated permanent residence within the Mazzaroth. It is an ohel (H168), a dwelling place.

What physical position, in a spiritual sense, has been given to the moon in the final days of the earth?

“And a great sign was seen in the heaven: a woman clad with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.” Ḥazon (Revelation) 12:1


Have you considered the Scriptural concept of the position ‘UNDER THE FEET’?


Is it a position of authority? Is it a solid platform for a truthful belief system as we have been coerced into accepting without questioning it?


It might not be as we have been previously taught!

Mazzaroth Constellations – Twelve!

There are twelve Mazzaroth Constellations that expose the full and complete plan of Salvation in the sky.


One constellation for each month of the year. There is not a 13th constellation, nor a 13th month!


One constellation for each month of the year that the Tree of Life produces fruit, as written in Revelation 22:2. Revelation tells us that there are twelve Let’s read it carefully –


“In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.” Ḥazon (Revelation) 22:2

There are TWELVE…

TWELVE fruits on the tree of life


TWELVE Mazzaroth Constellations


TWELVE captains reserved fro taking care of Solomon’s kingdom – one for each month (see 1 Chronicles 27:1)


TWELVE tribes of Yisra’El


TWELVE divisions in a light season declared by Yahusha – John 11:9


TWELVE months in prophetic years – (30 cycles per month)


TWELVE months in the year of Noah’s flood (proven 30 cycles per month)


TWELVE months in the year that Joshua entered Canaan


TWELVE months in the year that Yahusha stood up to speak on ‘that Last Great Day’ of Sukkot – John 7:37


TWELVE months in the year of Yahusha’s Ultimate Sacrifice



Where is a 13th month – with a second witness as required by YaHuWaH?

More Questions:

Is it possible that Yahusha arrived at the Feast of Sukkot in the middle of the celebration because He as observing Sukkot according to His Father YaHuWaH’s Will?


Is this what Yahusha meant when He said to His brothers – ‘My time has not yet been filled’? John 7:8


Was Yahusha operating on a calendar other than the Metonic Cycle which has become enforced after the death of Hezekiah?


Is the Metonic Cycle, the same lunar based calendar that is recorded by the Zadokite priests of Qumran; the one they so vehemently abhorred because it had insidiously crept into the 2nd Temple era worship traditions?


Is this lunar based calendar one of the reasons why the Essenes of Qumran abandoned the Tabernacle for their seclusion from evil traditions, and also the imposter leadership derived from the Hasmonean period leading into the 2nd Temple era?


What about a second witness – from Yahusha?

Yahusha is TWELVE years old! His earthly parents take Him to the Passover. Please note very carefully, the wording of this next text.

“And when He was twelve years old, they went up to Yerushalayim according to the practice of the festival.” (Luke) 2:42 TS2009

Question: Have you ever questioned why the Scriptures tell us it was according to the practice of the festival – instead of saying – according to the Torah?

“And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast.” Luke 2:42 KJV

What, and/or who, set the customs of this feast of the Yahudim?

‘customs of the feat’ – ‘A mistake in translation?’

The Scriptures are very clear and quite eager to tell us exactly when the Torah is being followed.

“And he came in the Spirit into the Set-apart Place. And as the parents brought in the Child יהושע, to do for Him according to the usual practice of the Torah,” Luqas (Luke) 2:27

“And when they had accomplished all matters according to the Torah of יהוה, they returned to Galil, to their city Natsareth.” Luqas (Luke) 2:39

Two Ideals – SIDE BY SIDE – a Visual, Psychological and Contextual Separation

According to the practice of the festival


According to the Torah of YaHuWaH


Context: ‘…practice of the festival’

“When they had accomplished the days, as they returned, the Child יהושע stayed behind in Yerushalayim. And His parents did not know it,” Luqas (Luke) 2:43

Note: The Scriptures DO NOT SAY – When they had fulfilled the Torah…

We are to understand this text is telling us by the context from the previous verse, that –

When they had accomplished the days according to the practice of the festival (of the Yahudim)…

Yahusha’s parents had outright left Him behind to be quire frank.

Just a trivial accident? Or Torah Fulfillment?

When Yahusha’s earthly parents ‘FORGOT’ about Yahusha and left on their return deliberately being fulfilled?


Wording this differently – When Yahusha was found by His parents in the Tabernacle, what was Yahusha’s response, and does it correspond to the teachings found in the Torah?


Again – When Yahusha was found, ‘after three days’ witnessing of His Father’s will in the Tabernacle, was He appropriately Living the Torah?


“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim.” Yoḥanan (John) 1:1Yahusha’s Response to the Inquiry –


And having seen Him, they were amazed. And His mother said to Him, “Son, why have You done this to us? See, Your father and I have been anxiously seeking You.” Luqas (Luke) 2:48

Yahusha’s Response –

And He said to them, “Why were you seeking Me? Did you not know that I had to be in the MATTERS of My Father?” Luqas (Luke) 2:49

‘The Matters’ of the Father – YaHuWaH

“Three times in the year you are to celebrate a festival to Me: Guard the Festival of Matzot. Seven days you eat unleavened bread, as I commanded you, at the time appointed in the new month of Aḇiḇ – for in it you came out of Mitsrayim – and do not appear before Me empty-handed; and the Festival of the Harvest, the first-fruits of your labours which you have sown in the field; and the Festival of the Ingathering at the outgoing of the year, when you have gathered in the fruit of your labours from the field. “Three times in the year ALL YOUR MALES are to appear before the Master יהוה. Shemoth (Exodus) 23:14-17

What ‘ON EARTH’ was Yahusha thinking?

Yahusha attended the Festival of the Yahudim entering in the middle of the Feast of Sukkot in John 7!


Note the fearful implication of Yahusha arriving at the MIDDLE of the Feast of Sukkot;


Yahusha would have FAILED to present Himself to YaHuWaH during the first of the Feast, and be in attendance AT THE TABERNACLE in accordance with the statues of Exodus 23:15-17, Deuteronomy 16:2, 5, 6, 11 & 16.


FAILURE to observe a statue(s) ALWAYS results in a SIN.


The questions we then need to ask ourselves is –

By NOT observing the first Sabbath of the Feast of the Yahudim, did Yahusha incur a sin upon Himself?


Since Yahusha is deemed sinless, what circumstance allows Him to skip the first Sabbath on the Feast of the Yahudim and yet remain sinless?


Back to John 7:19: the context of TIMING (midst of the Festival, v 14) has just been set by Yahusha, then when questioned by the Yahudim, Yahusha declares to them outright that THEY DO NOT DO THE TORAH!


• Yet they were all there observing their Sukkot Feast of the Yahudim!


What part of the Torah prevents the Feast of the Yahudim from being observed according to the statues of YaHuWaH?


What ‘ON EARTH’ is this situation?

According to Yahusha –

There is a circumstance which inevitably prevents the Yahudim from observing the Torah


Does this same optional tradition also effectively exclude Yahusha from YaHuWaH’s wrath when He began attending at the MIDDLE of THEIR Feast?


Tishri 23 – The Yahudim’s Feast has ended!

John 8 documents Yahusha returned to the Tabernacle the very next morning at It was a 7th Day Sabbath, on the 23rd of the month the day after the Festival of the Yahudim was over and He continued to teach.


Did Yahusha return to the Tabernacle intending to ‘present Himself before the Master YaHuWaH, according to the Calendar of Torah and Exodus 23:17, 34:21-23, Numbers 29:12, Deuteronomy 16:13-17?


Yahusha declared He was attending to His Father’s Business! Was Yahusha obediently PRESENTING HIMSELF BEFORE YaHuWaH according to the Eternal Calendar so brilliantly documented throughout the Scriptures?


Yahusha’s Contention!

Questions: Was Yahusha IN AGREEMENT with the Metonic Cycle – the lunar/solar calendar of the imposter 2nd Temple hierarchy?

Or, have the Scriptures efficiently exposed an obvious difference in observing Moedim between the Yahudim and Yahusha?




‘Yet NOT ONE of you does the Torah!’ John 7:19!!!


Why was Yahusha not conforming to the lunar/solar calendar of the 2nd Temple era?


Would there be any connection to the destruction of Jericho, the very center of moon worship?


Would there be any connection with the order to Gideon to destroy Zebah and Tsalmunna, moon worshipping leaders of their people?


What about when Gideon retrieved the moon crescent pendants from on their camels’ necks and these became a snare to Gideon later in life?


Is there a lesson here? Can we learn from these examples?


Next time you are asked –

Is there any proof of Yahusha being not in agreement with the lunar based calendar, in the Brit Chadashah – What will your answer be?


Next time you are asked –

How do we know Yahusha observed the Eternal Calendar that is recorded clearly in the flood account with Noah, and the exodus from Mitsrayim, – while living on this earth? {Brit Chadashah} What will your answer be?


Do we have any other information available to us on this topic – from the brother of Yahusha?

Ya’aqov – Half Brother to Yahusha

Ya’aqov (James in our English translations) has provided us with a mountain of information within one verse.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no change, nor shadow of turning. Ya‛aqoḇ (James) 1:17

Question: Does the moon cast forth its own light?

No? What lights could this verse possibly be pointing to? Genesis 1:16. There we read that YaHuWaH made TWO GREAT LIGHTS.

As the moon does not have its own light but only reflects the light of the sun, how can it be said that the moon is being referenced as one of the two great lights (or the lesser of the two great lights)?

What are the ‘TWO GREAT LIGHTS’?

According to the Tequfah (equinox) initiating the beginning of the new year, there are two lights which actuate this event. (The original Hebrew language declares the Tequfah as being the year-end).


• The TWO are 1. Mazzaroth light – Knowledge – from the Constellations, and 2. the position of the sun light – Timing – within the Mazzaroth.


These are the TWO GREAT LIGHTS! It is from earth that we are to observe the LIGHT of the Sun recording its location within the LIGHT of the Mazzaroth


How was this measured in ancient times? By a sun dial!


Does the moon cast a shadow of its own light on the earth, causing a shadow from its own light (without any assistance from the sun)?


No, it does not! The moon is DARKNESS without sunlight!


What? – a Shadow?

In James 1:17 where it is recorder ‘…with whom there is no change, nor shadow of turning’ – what shadow is Ya’aqov (James) referencing?


Ya’aqov (James) confirms the shadow of the sun dial is the truth still believed by the followers of This Tequfah (equinox) calendar system designed by YaHuWaH to determine time for eternity has not been altered.


On a correctly installed sun dial, when the Tequfah (equinox) occurs, there is no shadow in the correct space on the sun dial. There is no shadow when the end of the year of the year occurs and the start of the new year begins.


Ya’aqov (James) informs us most certainly that with the Father of Lights there is no change. YaHuWaH DID NOT at the time of the sun dial incident with Hezekiah, change His system from a Tequfah based calendar to a lunar based calendar (the Metonic cycle).


The Metonic Cycle is a designer (read – false) 5 cycle month.


YaHuWaH’s Celestial Boundary

This is YaHuWaH’s definition of a 360 degree circuit in the heavens –

“The sun also rises, and the sun sets, and hurries back to the place where it arose.” Qoheleth (Ecclesiastes) 1:5

The completion of a circuit in the heavens is found at the ORIGINAL PLACE OF DEPARTURE. That original place of departure is the completion point of a 360 degree circuit.

Now let’s look at some of man’s lunar month definitions.

Man’s Designer Circuits (#1)

There are several types of lunar months.


Usually the term lunar month refers to the synodic month, because it is the cycle of visible moon phases.


Most of the following types of months (but not the distinction between sidereal and tropical months) were first recognized in Babylonian lunar astronomy.


Man’s Designer Circuits (#2)

Sidereal Month (definition)

The period of the Moon’s orbit as defined with respect to the celestial sphere (of the fixed stars, nowadays the International Celestial Reference Frame (ICRF) is known as the sidereal month because it is the time it takes the Moon to return to a given position among the stars (Latin: sidera): 27.321661 days (27 d 7 h 43 min 11.5 s).


This type of month has been observed among cultures in the Middle East, India, and China in the following way: They divided the sky into 27 or 28 lunar mansions, one for each day of the month, identified by the prominent star(s) in them.


Did you note the amount of days required for the moon to complete a 360 degree circuit?

Man’s Designer Circuits (#3)


Please observe the ‘non-Christian’ cultures that observed the actual time of a full 360 degree lunation, which is a little over 27 cycles (days) in length.


Why did ‘Christian’ cultures ‘stretch out’ the lunar month to come as close as possible to YaHuWaH’s 30 cycle solar month?

Synodic Month (definition) (quotes, hence the false heliocentric earth ideals)

Is this YaHuWaH’s established format for determining time?

This is the average period of the Moon’s revolution with respect to the line joining the Sun and Earth. The synodic month is the period of the Moon’s phases, because the Moon’s appearance depends on the position of the Moon with respect to the Sun as seen from the Earth.


While the Moon is orbiting the Earth, the Earth is progressing in its orbit around the Sun. After completing a sidereal month the Moon must move a little further to reach the new position having the same angular distance from the Sun. This longer period is called the synodic month (Greek: συνοδικός, sunodikos, meaning ‘pertaining to a synod, i.e., a meeting’ [in his case of the Sun and the Moon]).


Questions to Ponder:

Where in the Scriptures do we find instruction to draw a line connecting the earth, sun AND THE MOON?


The Tequfah (equinox) gives us direction for a visual connection with the earth (our viewpoint); while discerning the location of the sun within the Mazzaroth start – (Psalms 19:1-6).


Tequfah – Exodus 34:22, 1 Samuel 1:20, 2 Chronicles 24:23, & Psalms 19:6!



Man’s Designer Circuits (#5)

We see within the definitions, man’s re-designing and formation of a different set of boundaries (rules) for determining a lunation.


Man’s new design includes points BEYOND A COMPLETED 360 DEGREE LUNATION CIRCUIT!

That way the time factor can be MANIPULATED to appear AS NEAR AS POSSIBLE TO YaHuWaH’s 30 days/month design for determining time.


This type of manipulation is identical to when the Dragon told Eve – ‘You shall certainly not die’ BUT… (Genesis 3:4).


Man’s Designer Circuit Quotes (#6)

Since the Earth’s orbit around the Sun is elliptical and not circular, the angular rate of Earth’s progression around the Sun varies during the year. The angular rate is faster nearer periapsis and slower near apoapsis. The same is so for the Moon’s orbit around the Earth. Because of these variations in angular rate, the actual time between lunations may range from about 29.18 to about 29.93 days. The long-term average is 29.530587981 days (29 d 12 h 44 min 2.8016 s). The synodic month is used to calculate eclipse cycles.


A synodic month is longer than a sidereal month because the Earth-Moon system is orbiting the Sun in the same direction as the Moon is orbiting the Earth. Therefore, the Sun appear to move with respect to the stars, and it takes about 2.2 days longer for the Moon to return to the same apparent position with respect to the Sun.


The Synodic Month/Metonic Cycle Quotes (#1)

Synodic Period

(sɪnodɪk), in astronomy, length of time during which a body in the solar system makes one orbit, in astronomy, path in space described by a body revolving about a second body where the motion of the orbiting bodies is dominated by their mutual gravitational attraction.


Of the sun relative to the earth, i.e., returns to the same elongation, in astronomy, the angular distance between two points in the sky as measured from a third point. The elongations of a planet is usually measured as the angular distance from the sun to the planet as measured from the earth.


Because the earth moves (Read Psalms 93:1) in its own orbit, the synodic period differs from the sidereal period, which is measured relative to the starts. The synodic period of the moon, which is called the lunar month, or lunation, is 29.5 days long; it is longer than the sidereal month. The moon is full when it is at opposition, in astronomy, alignment of two celestial bodies on opposite sides of the sky as viewed from earth. Opposition of the moon or planets is often determined in reference to the sun.


The Synodic Month/Metonic Cycle Connection Quotes (#2)

One sidereal month later it will not yet be full, since it must travel further in its orbit around the earth to reach the point of opposition, which has moved relative to the start because of the earth’s motion.


Since the calendar month is not equal to the lunar month, the full moon does not occur on the same day every month. The length of time between recurrences of the full moon on the same date is 235 lunar months, or 19 years. This period, called the Metonic cycle, was discovered by the Greek astronomer Meton in 433 BC. It is used in determining the date of Easter on the Gregorian calendar.


Who attempted to change times and laws? (Daniel 7:25)

Who decided the ‘stretch’ the lunar month by altering – re-designing – YaHuWaH’s boundaries of a full 360 degree circuit?


Who desires to achieve a monthly circuit that NEARLY REFLECTS THAT OF YAHUWAH’S MAZZAROTH BASED 30 DAY MONTH?


Who PRODUCES AUTHORITY that can achieve replacing YaHuWaH’s selected celestial identities – Sun-Light and the Mazzaroth, as the Tequfah Combination?


YaHuWaH determined that these divine institutions founded at Creation defined a completed year and a 360 degree – 30 day monthly cyclical pattern!

What is the significance of this replacement?

When man chose to #1) replace the LIGHT of the sun and instead reference the reflected light from the moon and #2) remove the Mazzaroth’s TEQUFAH – what then did man in effect do?

Man has in effect REMOVED THE TWO GREAT LIGHTS OF Genesis 1:16 from having any importance whatsoever!

Ya’aqov (James) assures us the Mazzaroth based calendar that Noah operated on, has not, nor ever will be changed by YaHuWaH.

This information comes directly from the half-brother of Yahusha after His impalement at Golgotha.

Yahusha was NOT in agreement with the Pharisees’ LUNAR BASED TRADITIONS. Consider Yahusha’s cutting statement to them!

“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you go about the land and the sea to win one convert, and when he is won, you make him a son of GĕHinnom twofold more than yourselves.” Mattithyahu (Matthew) 23:15

Why? One reason is that they converted a person and placed that person on the LUNAR BASED CALENDAR that YaHuWaH PASSIONATELY DESPISES!

Another Scathing Statement

“But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you shut up the reign of the heavens before men, for you do not go in, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.” Mattithyahu (Matthew) 23:13

How have the Pharisees accomplished this heresy of silencing the governing authority of the heavens – (Mazzaroth)?

‘…because you took away the key of knowledge.’ Luke 11:52

How is this evil accomplished?

The Pharisees abandoned the Word of YaHuWaH where we are told about the Tequfah (equinox) ending and starting the new year and gave us their tradition of giving allegiance to the moon instead.

Tequfah Abandoned – Out of Covenant!

What occurs when YaHuWaH’s Celestial Governing Event – the Tequfah – is abandoned for a dogmatic imposter?


It is then IMPOSSIBLE to enter into Covenant with your Creator!


What was is that the Pharisees did not, AND COULD NOT, ‘enter into’ themselves?


Covenant with YaHuWaH!


Why could the Pharisees not enter into Covenant with YaHuWaH?


Because the rejected the divine institution from Creation that initiated the Qodesh Worship Calendar upon which are the Moedim (Feasts and Festivals).


The Pharisees thought it better to follow the moon than YaHuWaH’s Tequfah!


Yahusha’s Response to Their Choice!

The Pharisees had rejected the Tequfah for the Moon, to which Yahusha said –

“But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you shut up the reign of the heavens before men, for you do not go in, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.” Mattithyahu (Matthew) 23:13


“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you go about the land and the sea to win one convert, and when he is won, you make him a son of GĕHinnom twofold more than yourselves.” Mattithyahu (Matthew) 23:15


How could the Pharisees lead a convert to be in Covenant with YaHuWaH when they refused it themselves?


How could they teach about the key of knowledge – the Tequfah – which would place people on the Eternal Calendar of Shem, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses and Joshua when they had rejected the Word of YaHuWaH?


When the Feasts and Festivals are observed according to moon tradition, they are not on the Qodesh (Set-Apart) Appointed Times of YaHuWaH.


These feasts and festivals then become ‘YOUR’ feasts, ‘YOUR’ assemblies, ‘YOUR’ sabbaths and ‘YOUR’ NEW MOONS (Months), which are an EVIL ABOMINATION to YaHuWaH. (Ref Isaiah 1:11-15)


Why? Because they are on the Dragon’s schedule, upon which a curse was placed at the destruction of Jericho, the center of moon worship.


On the deeper context, that curse was placed upon the person(s) who continue to rebuild the pagan system of moon worship.


YaHuWaH cannot be with us and deliver the coveted Ruach Ha Qodesh to us WHEN we choose to follow the traditions of man.


YaHuWaH’s Appeal

Let us not fall into the trap that YaHuWaH warned us about in Judges 2.

“Therefore I also said, ‘I am not driving them out before you, and they shall be adversaries to you, and their mighty ones shall be a snare to you.’ ” So they forsook יהוה and served Ba‛al and the Ashtoreths. Then יהוה raised up rulers who saved them from the hand of those who plundered them.

However, they did not listen to their rulers either, but went whoring after other mighty ones, and bowed down to them. They soon turned aside from the way in which their fathers walked, in obeying the commands of יהוה – they did not do so.” Shophetim (Judges) 2:3, 13, 16-17


If we as a people are pledging allegiance to a pagan tradition of allowing the false leadership of the moon to guide us, ARE WE ‘BOWING’TO THE BA’ALS AND ASHTORETHS seen in this world TODAY?

My friend, let us repent and return to the Word of YaHuWaH with a passion never before realized. May YaHuWaH grant you never ending portions of guidance and wisdom.

  • This is so interesting and align with our own studies. Did you know on stellarium that the crescent moon and the equinox in 30 AD are only 2 days apart so the Feasts of the Yehudim and those keeping a solar or Mazzaroth calendar would be really close!!
    We have been keeping a solar calendar for over a year now and a morning to morning day vs Erev to Erev. Along with our own research we found…
    Roland De Vaux is the expert of experts on Ancient Israel. A Catholic scholar, one of only a few to ever touch the Dead Sea scrolls and he proves beyond any doubt that Israel followed a morning day UNTIL their captivity in Babylon, when they changed their calendar to the pagan Babylonian Calendar (look at some of the names of Jewish months! I.E.- Tammuz!(Nimrod)). We see constantly in the Book of John the terms “sons of light” (those who followed a morning day) and sons of darkness (those who followed the pagan evening day that Jews follow to this day. The Essenses followed the morning day, by the way.

    Chancellor Schorsch wrote that the Rabbis “reconfigured the day” and that it is much better the new way.
    Look up this guy too
    And Look up rabbi Dr. Israel Drazin
    They historically proves out sunrise sabbath practice before Babylonian captivity

    So thank you for your added knowledge, time and experience.
