Defying The Fourth Commandment

The Fourth Commandment is stated in the following verse:

Exodus 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

If we look at the Gregorian calendar now, we run into the idea that it is Saturday, because it appears to be the 7th day and it sounds like Sabbath developed into Saturday as time went by, wrong. Saturday means "Saturn's day" or the day of Saturn. Let's continue reading the verses:

Exodus 20:9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

Exodus 20:10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD Yahuwah thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

So, work can be done from day 1 to day 6, but day 7 is the Sabbath. But when is day 1? We have a seven-day period called a week, and day 1 should be the first day of the week. Should the first day of the week coincide with the first day of the month? No. It is the first day of the month that should coincide with the new moon, the time when the moon's revolution around the earth starts again. Here we notice that something is wrong with our Gregorian calendar. It does not start with the new moon. The verses we have just cited are talking about the calendar that starts with the new moon, and whose first month starts with the first new moon in Spring. The first month (January) of our Gregorian calendar starts in Winter. The Gregorian started in late 1600. It was preceded by the Julian Calendar in 45 B.C. There was a calendar before that. Let me call it the Biblical calendar.

The Gregorian calendar does not follow the moon cycle because it is a Solar calendar. It has nothing to do with the moon, a direct contradiction and defiance of the following verse:

Psalm 104:19 He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down declares its advent.

The first and the second nonth of the Biblical calendar are shown below:

Let's take Paul's description of their trip in the following verses and track it using the Biblical calendar above:

Acts 10:6 And we sailed away from Philippi after the days of unleavened bread, and came unto them to Troas in five days; where we abode seven days.

The feast of unleavened bread is marked "ULB" from the 15th to 21st of the first month above. They sailed to Troas for 5 days, marked "SAIL 1" to "SAIL 5". They stayed for 7 days marked "ABODE 1" to "ABODE 7". Let's continue reading Paul's story below:

Acts 10:7 And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow;

The seventh day of their stay fell exactly on the first day of the first week in the second month. This is how Paul's story fit the Biblical calendar configuration. This is not possible to show using the Gregorian calendar. The Biblical month always starts at sunrise immediately following the Earth-Moon-Sun conjunction. Sabbaths fall on the 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th day.

One thousands five hundred years before, Moses wrote the following verses:

In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.

This verse exactly fits the Biblical calendar illustrated earlier. The feast of unleavened bread fits between two Sabbaths, the 15th and the 22nd day of the month. Israel was warned not to violate the Sabbath law:

Jeremiah 17:27 But if ye will not hearken unto me to hallow the sabbath day, and not to bear a burden, even entering in at the gates of Jerusalem on the sabbath day; then will I kindle a fire in the gates thereof, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem, and it shall not be quenched.

So it was written, and so it was done when the Romans destroyed Jerusalem on August 10, 70 A.D.

Exodus 31:15 ‘Work shall be done for six days, but the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD Yahuwah. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.

And so the world continues to defy the Fourth Commandment and more than 2 people die every second worldwide. The world says death is the will of God.
