Renewed Crescent Moon Sightings in Israel

Renewed Moon Sightings in Israel & Feast Dates 2020

Scripture holds no formal technical study manual on ‘how to’ figure out the calendar, such as the Feast dates (the Appointed Times), New Moon Sightings in Israel, the start of the Hebrew Month, or When to Add an Extra Month (intercalate). However, Scripture will provide all the starting points necessary when used in combination with other scientific facts and data which will produce the correct calendar. (c.f. by Daniel Gregg)

renewed crescent moon sightingsLet there be LIGHTS (plural)

In Genesis 1:14 (14 Then the Almĭghty said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens, to make a division between the day and between the night. And they will have been for signs, and for appointed times, and for days and years). Here, we are told that two great lights are signs for the appointed times, the sun and the moon. Scripture often satisfies a technical goal in simple ways and without technical language. The typical, average reader will just skip right over these kinds of details. But the reader who diligently, ponders the matter and realises the requirements that need to be clarified reads the text and does not miss the detail that makes things plain. It says, “And let them be for signs,” which is the lights.

The important point here is that it is the light that makes the sign. In the case of the moon it has to receive light from the sun, which in turn has to be reflected to earth so that it is visible. It is the return of visible light to the moon by which it marks the night heading up the first day of the month. So what else is there in Scriptural chronology to confirm that the new moon was visibly observed?

Why Observe the Feasts

The feast days are part of God’s Law (instruction). Yeshua said He did not come to abolish the Law (nomos) or the Prophets (Matthew 5:17-20), and he reinforced this teaching by directing His followers to obey the instruction of the Pharisees (Matthew 23:1-3), and by telling them to teach everything He commanded to the nations (Matthew 28:18-20).

All sabbath periods begin at sunset and finish at sunset.

Join others worldwide who are beginning to realise that the ancient method of observation to determine the true Biblical calendar, was the one used in Israel during the time of the Tenakh (Old Testament) and also during the time of the Messiah Yeshua.
