New Moon Day

Enter subhead content here



On the first day of the month in creation, there was a dark New Moon in the heavens, before the light, and everything started moving on the first day of the week. 

There is still a dark New moon today (Day of the new moon), before the first day of the week, nothing has changed.

This dark new moon day commemorates the creation each month, when the Almighty created heaven and earth, before time actually began, with the movements of light across the face of the moon, which happens on the first day of the week, which is the second day of the month, as it did in creation.

 This puts the first seventh day rest of the weekly Sabbath on the "eighth" day of the month/moon  in creation, instead of the seventh day of the moon, same as everywhere you find a pinpointed weekly Sabbath in scripture, and nothing has changed since then. What can be more simpler to understand than that?
 
 

There is a way to correctly tell time by the great lights in the heavens, without having to have a so called two day new moon, and without the weekly Sabbath and the beginning of a new month happening on the same 24-hour day. Here’s how simple it is,
 
The heavens are doing what they do for everyone on earth. The conjunction happens for everyone, the sun sets for everyone, etc. and when we set our calendar to harmonize with nature's cycles, these heavenly cycles flow smoothly around the earth to everyone, with no broken cycles, and no two day new moons, and no Sabbath cycle and day of the new moon happening on the same 24-hour day, etc. here is an example of what we have when we do not interrupt nature.
 
When everyone around the earth observes the day in which the moon is going to become new/dark in, before any “light begins aging” it, as the day of the new moon, everyone around the earth will automatically begin the day of the new moon in the very same 24-hour cycle!
 
Someone will begin this 24-hour cycle, as their sun sets, and this day, in which the moon is going to become dark in, and it will go around to everyone on earth, and all will be in that very same first cycle of the month!
 
Cycle 1 will end, with the one who began it, and then cycle 2 will begin, while everyone else is still in cycle 1 until cycle 2 comes around to them as their sun sets, and then their cycle 1 ends, and they will enter into cycle 2. This process will continue all month.
 
Nature will only allow everyone around the earth to get 29 solar cycles within the 29 ½ day lunar cycle, with ½ day left over. 
 
No one can observe ½ day, but at the end of the second month, another ½ day accumulates, and then there will be a full 24-hour day in between the last Sabbath of the month, and before the next day of the new moon, making that a 30 day month, with no man-made tampering!
 
Nature has now made a 30 day month, without the help of anyone, and when we allow nature to add the 30th day, it is a complete 24-hour cycle that can go around to everyone on earth, and the calendar runs smoothly. No one gets a 30 day month until nature produces one!
 
Also, in addition to the above, there are no broken cycles, and there will “never” be no such thing as a two day new moons [which is not even found in nature], and you never have a last Sabbath of the old month, and the beginning of a new month colliding with each other in the same 24-hour day cycle.
 
I don’t think anyone should feel comfortable, not letting nature do what it’s doing, and adjust our calendar according to what nature is actually doing instead of what we think it should be doing.
 
 Age of the moon

One of the most crucial part of the solar/lunar calendar is knowing WHAT a new moon is!

You must know WHAT it is, in order to know WHEN it is.

The moon orbits the earth once each month, and there is a very definitive point at which it ends it's orbit, and begins a "new" one!

At the end of each month the moon becomes dark at the point when the sun, the moon, and the earth, are in a perfect line with each other. At this point there is no light on either side of the moon, until they slightly begin passing each other.

On one solar day each month the lunar moon becomes new, but for only a brief moment because it is constantly moving.

But the "day" in which the new Moon occurs, or becomes new in, is not a brief moment, but is a full 24 hour day!

That is why the days of the new moon/month are counted from the "day" of the new moon instead of the new moon itself. The "day" of the new Moon is different from the new Moon itself!

Man cannot discern brief moments as well as he can the "day" of the brief moment.

The Hebrew definition of new Moon is to be new, and this happens once every month for a brief moment within a 24-hour day.

A new Moon/month begins the very moment the old one ends, and the old one ends when the light goes away at the dark new moon conjunction.

Again, at Conjunction, the sun, moon, and earth, are in perfect line, and there is no light shinning on "either side" of the moon at that point, because the moon is in perfect line between the sun and the earth, just like in creation, on the first day of the month. Each month we commemorate the day in which that brief moment occurred!

On the very same day of the dark moon conjunction, the sun begins to illuminate the dark moon, as they begin passing one another, and it is at this  point that the moon begins aging again, but not before the light hits it, it remains brand-new until it starts aging with light!

The only way to tell the age of a moon is by the light that is on it!

The longer the light is on it, after conjunction, the older it is! 

When no light is on it, it is brand-new, and it has never been used to reflect light for that new month.

The moon waxes with light until full of light, and then wanes until empty of light!

When the old moon is empty of light, a dark brand-new moon automatically occurs the very moment after the old light ends, and this dark moon happens right "before" the new light begins on it again. Nothing I am saying here is untrue.

The moon, in between waxing and waning of light, is dark for a brief moment at conjunction. In other words, after waning, and "before" waxen, the moon is dark, or brand-new at this point. The "solar day" in which this happens in, is unique, and very special in scripture for worship.

Again, when a moon is brand-new, there is no light on either side of it, just like the first day of the month in creation. This happens every month, and I say it commemorates the first day of the month in creation.

When light came on, after the day/yom of the dark moon (conjunction), the dark new moon conjunction ended, and  the first day of the week began at evening, and then when he rested on the 7th day of the week, it was the 8th day of the month/moon, when counting the day/yom of the dark new moon, just like every where else in scripture. 

Telling time by the moon is similar to telling time by a clock. You have an hour hand and a minute hand and a particular number, which all come in perfect line once each hour.

Let's say a new hour begins at exactly 3 o'clock, when the little hand and the big hand, are in perfect line with the number 3. 

It is not a brand new hour at 2:59, neither at 3:01, because at 3:01, the hour is "one minute old", and everything is not in line, and it is not a brand new hour (3 o'clock) unless everything is in perfect line!

The new hour begins at 3 o'clock, not 3:01, after the long hand has passed the 3 and is no longer in line with the shorthand and the number 3, and therefore it is no longer 3 o'clock, but is one minute after 3. The new hour is one minute old at 3:01!

It is not 3 o'clock one minute "before 3, or one minute "after 3". Neither is it a new moon one minute before conjunction or one minute after conjunction! The dark conjunction point separates the old light and the new light.

The number 3 is between the last minute of the old hour (2:59), and the first minute of the new hour (3:01), same as the dark new Moon is between the last light of the old month, and the first light of the new month.

The new 3 o'clock hour (conjunction) is exactly between 2:59 and 3:01, and only lasts a moment, same as the dark new Moon conjunction lasts only a moment.

You can see the above rule applies to the new month as well as to the clock. There is nothing new after the point or moment that it became new, it begins aging from that moment on.

The whole month can be considered new, relative to the old month, but is only new for a moment in each new month. I believe the above is in line with sound logic.

The reason I used 3 o'clock is because it it would represent the position of sunset in the west, at creation when the light came on, as the day/yom of the new moon was ending, and the first day of the week beginning simontanously. 

According to Psalms 33:9, it appears that there was only a brief moment, in which heaven and earth was created, on the day/yom  of the new Moon in creation.

Psalm 33:1-9 KJV
[1] … Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright. [2] Praise the Lord with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. [3] Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise. [4] For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth. [5] He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord . [6] By the "word" of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the "breath" of his mouth. [7] He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses. [8] Let all the earth fear the Lord : let all the inhabitants of the world stand in "awe" of him. [9] For he "spake", and it was "done"; he "commanded", and it stood "fast".…


Dateline

New dates and days go out west from the dateline, and never east!

Most people do not understand how a date Line works. Neither do they understand that biblical dates always comes to us from west of any Date Line!

If you were standing on the man made dateline and east of the dateline was Saturday, and west of the dateline is Sunday the first day of the week "and" also the first date of the month, it goes around to everyone on earth!

This means that the first day and date of the month began "west" of the dateline and came around to everyone on earth. It is the first day of the man-made month and goes around to everyone.

Each month, when the new moon sets a new biblical Dateline, somewhere on earth, it works the same way. 

Everone west of the heavenly dateline begins the first day or date of the new month on earth, And that day and date of the biblical month goes around to everyone, just like on the man-made Dateline!

The date of the month came to everyone from west of the dateline. And Everyone East of, or behind the dateline, is in the old month. Just like everyone east of the man-made dateline on Saturday is in the old week, and everyone west of the Dateline on Sunday, and in the first day of a new week.

You cannot have a calendar of any kind, without a Dateline to set the boundaries.

The sun is continually rising 24 hours a day, and setting 24 hours a day around the earth, and without some kind of dateline, no one knows where on earth the day begins and ends. (The moon serves this purpose)

You can create a Man made solar only dateline, or you can use the lunar  solar dateline in heaven. 

I don't know how many people has ever thought of this, but the day "always begins west" of "any" dateline whether it's the heavenly dateline, or the one man creates, the days always begins west of it.

Truly the sun rises in the east for everybody, but each new day comes around to everyone, from the west of the dateline.

If you try to begin the day east of any dateline, it will actually wipe out the dateline, (Think about that for a moment) the day must begin west of any dateline, and the day begins at evening, same as in creation.

The only way "any" Dateline will work is to begin the day going forth (west) from the dateline.

Even with the solar only man made dateline, you have Saturday on the east side of the line, and Sunday on the west side, and if you argued that the day begins on the east side of the dateline, it automatically wipes out the Dateline as crosses it. No part of the day can cross the line or it changes to another day, in this case, Saturday would change to Sunday. No part of Saturday can cross over into Sunday, or it destroys the dateline. All days must stop and a new one start at the Dateline, somewhere on earth.

Let me demonstrate.
Because biblical days of the month are by the moon, every month the New moon creates a new dateline somewhere on earth in which to count days from. 

It works in the same way as the man-made Date Line, only it floats and is not fixed like the man made dateline is. This way every place on earth gets the honor to bring in the new month.

For those of us who keep the day in which the moon actually becomes new in, as the day of the new Moon, will begin the day the evening before the new Moon occurs, so the new Moon will be in that day.

In other words, those who are one hour west of the new Moon dateline, will begin their day the evening before, let's say Thursday evening to Friday evening, (if the new Moon happens on Friday) and the New Moon will be in that same day, one hour before sunset.

Those that are east of the new moon dateline, will keep the day in which the new moon happens in, on Friday evening, 23 hours after those that began their New Moon day Thursday evening, on the Roman calendar, But both enter the same New Moon day cycle, As it comes to them.

They will both be in the same "biblical" New Moon 24hr day cycle, which began with those west of the new Moon Date Line, 23 hours earlier, and even though those in the west begin their new moon day on Thursday evening and those in the east began their new moon day on Friday evening, on the Roman calendar, "they are both in the same biblical 24 hr cycle." (biblical day cycles are counted from the new moon, And we should not mix Roman cycles with them.)

It's just the Roman solar only calendar that makes them look like they're on two different days, but those cycles do not count. Remember the biblical cycle days are counted from the new Moon, not 12 midnight on the Roman calendar, or a man-made Date Line.

Biblical days of the month are counted from the moon, and when the moon sets a Dateline on earth (to count from) the first day of that month will begin, and go out from there (West) to to everyone around the earth, and everyone will be enter into the same heavenly cycle!

The New Moon/beginning of the month conjunction can happen between two states, as the sun is setting, and it will be the first day of the month on earth for the one west of this New dateline, and the last day of the month for those east of this Dateline.

It is the moon that determines where the first day of the month on earth will start, and go around to everyone, because biblical days are by the moon. And it can split the day between two cities, just like the traditional man-made dateline splits between two islands in the Pacific Ocean.

Side note:

There is also a snapshot or picture of a new moon in creation. 

The first new moon in creation was a dark moon before light hits it. 

The moment light hits it it is no longer new, but aging from then on, until it becomes new again at dark conjunction.

The new moon in creation was new when it was created dark. He is going to create a new heaven, and a new moon will be in it also according to Isaiah. 

Again, a new Moon is no longer new the moment light hits it, and there is a day each month in which the  moon becomes dark, and it is call the day of the new moon or the day of conjunction. 

It is very important to understand that there is a huge difference between the "day" of the new moon and the new Moon itself. The "day of the new Moon" is the day that the moon becomes dark/new, before she starts receiving light from the sun. The light of the sun ages her and shows us how old she is.

Again, the moon is new at conjunction and immediately after that it is aging or growing old. It was new in creation day while dark. Creation day began before the dark moon, and is the Day we are to commemorate, Because in that day heaven and earth was created, including the dark new moon.

 
None of the days after conjunction fits the Hebrew definition of new moon.
There is ONLY ONE DAY each month that is unique enough to fit ALL the qualification of the Hebrew definition of new moon, and that is the day it becomes new IN!
Remember the definition of new moon is “new month”, taken from the Hebrew word which means, “to be new”, “torebuild”, “to renew”.
The new moon cycle does not become new in any of the days following conjunction day, and therefore they do not fit all the Hebrew definition of new moon and therefore none of them can be the scriptural day of the new moon. It’s that simple.
Although all of the days after conjunction possibly fits PART of the definition, namely, the “rebuild” part, but NOT the “new month” part, or the “to be new” part, or the “renew” part, because the moon is hours old by the time the next day’s begins. The new moon cycle does not “become new” in any of the days after conjunction day, nor does it “renew” in any of them.
The only day that fits ALL the Hebrew definition for new moon, is the evening to evening day it becomes new IN. This alone should solve the so-called New Moon Ministry. 
The prayer of Moses in Psalms 90:12 says, “teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom”.
Moses understood the importance of numbering days correctly, and I believe Moses prayer was answered.
Our discussion as to when is the FIRST day of the new moon cycle has led us to the question, should we number the FULL day in which the new cycle actually begins, as the first day of the new cycle, or should we number the next day or some time after the cycle has begun, as the first full day of the new cycle? Are we to look for the full day that the cycle is going to become new in, or for the first full day after the day after the new moon cycle actually became new?
When a new baby is born, that whole day is the day of its birth, no matter what time of the day the new baby is born, it is its birthday. Now the day after the day that the new baby is born in, is the first full 24-hour day of the new baby’s life, BUT it is not the day of its birth, or the day in which the new baby became new!
The same is true with the birth of a new moon, after the old moon has died out at conjunction. The new moon cycle becomes new on the day of conjunction, and the next day is the first full 24 hours of the new moon’s rebuilding, BUT it is not the day in which the moon actually became new, and therefore it is not the day of the new moon!
 If the day after conjunction is the first full day of the new moon, was the day before that day, the actual new moon, being as the day after the new moon is the first full day of the new moon? i.e. in order to have the first full day of the new moon, the new moon has to begin the day before, same as the first full day of the new babies the life, the new baby had to be born the day before!
 How can someone say that the first full day of the new moon comes after conjunction without calling the day of conjunction the new moon! Meditate on that for a while. Again, in order to have a first full day “of” the new moon, the new moon has to have begun before the first full day!
But did Moses count the full day of the conjunction, when the moon actually becomes new, as the first day of the month, or the next full day?
 He certainly counted the conjunction day in creation as the first day of the month, or the Sabbath would not have been on the 8th day.
The prayer of Moses should also be our prayer today, because if we do not know the correct method of numbering days, we cannot find the first day of the month and therefore cannot keep any of his appointments that he commands us to keep.
I know of no one who argues against the Hebrew definition of new moon, which means a new month/cycle, taken from the Hebrew word that means “to be new,” to “rebuild” or “renew”. Combine this with the fact that there is one day each month, the cycle of the moon ends, and a “new month/moon begins”, or “becomes new”, on the very same day at conjunction, and you will have the answer.
I guess the key question would be, can the day of this conjunction be scripturally counted as the FIRST day of the new moon/month, even if the conjunction only happens in part of the day?
The Scripture in Ezekiel 46:1 says for us to worship “in” “the day of” the new moon”. The Phrase “in the day of” is 284 times in Scripture and always refers to the day in which something happens [not the day after], and is always the firstday of the happening, and no matter what time of day it happened, it is counted as a whole day.
This mindset is also confirmed in Philo’s writings, where he describes the conjunction and says that “the law honors the end of the moon’s orbit/cycle, at the point that it began to travel, by having called THAT DAY a feast,” [obviously THAT DAY is referring to the whole day of the conjunction even though the conjunction can happen in part of the day.] THE SPECIAL LAWS,11 verse 142 page 581
Notice Philo is saying that the law honors that day [or conjunction day] by calling it [the whole day] a feast!
Philo lived during the time of our Savior and worshiped on the same new moon day. Philo is not saying that the law honors the HOUR of the conjunction, or new cycle, but the DAY of it, or the whole day in which it happens!
Again, remember the question is would the ancients have counted the day as a whole and as the first day?
 When numbering the days of the new moon/month most people do not want to count the day in which the moon actually becomes new [at conjunction], as the FIRST day of the month, because the conjunction can happen in any part of the day and we don’t think of that day as being a whole first day of the new month, and therefore we wait to the next day in order to get over a whole day into the cycle, which said actually over a whole day in the cycle. But was this the mindset of Moses and the ancient Hebrews, and was this the method they used in numbering the FIRST day? That is the question!
#1.  Starting with the Messiah, how did he number days?
#2. Did the Messiah know or understand how to number days correctly?
#3.  Would the Messiah have counted the day in which the conjunction occurred, at the point that the moon actually became new, as the first full day of the month/new moon?
The answer to the above three question is yes, yes, and definitely yes, and it can be proven from the Messiah’s own words.
The Messiah says that he would be in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights, Mathew 12:40 and in John2:19 He said, “destroy this temple, [speaking of the temple of his body], and in three days I will raise it up”.
We know that he died about the ninth hour [3:00 p.m.], on preparation day, and was laid in a nearby tomb shortly before sunset on the fourteenth of Abib, and the Sabbath drew on. The point I am getting at is that He rose again on the third day, which means that the small portion of the day that he was placed in the tomb [shortly before sunset], was counted as a whole day and was also numbered as the FIRST DAY of the count of the three days!
There you have it! The Messiah himself counted the part of the day [that he was buried] as a whole day, and also numbered it as the FIRST day of the three day to resurrection. He understood that any part of the day that something happened in, was numbered as the FIRST day. He would have counted the whole day that the new cycle of the moon occurred, the day which it became new in, as the FIRST whole day of the new cycle!
The same is true with numbering the days of each new month, you may not agree with this method of numbering, but the evidence shows that is the way they done it. We also do it that way today, because when a child is born [no matter what time of day], we count that day as his birthday, and do not wait until the next full day of his life and count it as the first day of his life because his life began the day before.
 When the Messiah was buried, on the FIRST day [of the three days to resurrection], it was the day of the conjunction point of being placed in the tomb, and it happened shortly before sunset, but this FIRST day, which happened near the end of the 24-hour day, was counted as a whole FIRST day and night of the three-day count to the resurrection!
If the people in the New Testament, including the Messiah, understood that the day in which something BEGAN in, was counted as the FIRST day of it, they would count the day in which the new cycle of the moon began in, as the FIRST day of it also!
This is the Hebrew and Greek mindset of how they numbered days during the time of the New Testament, therefore when they read Ezekiel 46:1, they would have counted the whole day in which the moon became new [at conjunction], as the first day of the new moon/month. This is the conjunction point when the old moon dies and the new moon is born, or begins, which happens in the very same day as the conjunction, and the whole day is known as the day of the new moon, in the Hebrew mindset, and this is in harmony with the historical evidence in Philo.
They did not have to wait until the next day after the moon actually became new, at conjunction, to have a whole day of the new moon, because they counted the day in which it happened as a whole day. And besides that, the moon is hours old on the next day after conjunction, and is not counted as the day of the new moon because it is not the day in which the moon became new. It is the first full day “of”, or belonging to the new moon, but is not the new moon.
If it was the FIRST day, at the conjunction point when a child is born, or of the Messiah being placed in the tomb, why would it not be the FIRST day at conjunction point, when the moon is born or becomes new???
Wouldn’t the conjunction point day of the new moon, be counted as a whole day, and also the FIRST day of the new moon/month, same as the conjunction point day that the Messiah was placed in the tomb was counted as a whole day, and also the FIRST day of the three days to resurrection?
The Hebrew method of numbering the days of an event, whether it be the days of a woman’s uncleanness after she has a child, no matter what time of day the child is born, the day is counted as a whole day and it is also the FIRST day of her uncleanness, regardless of the hour the child was born!
If it is a male child, the new baby is to be circumcised the eighth day and the FIRST day [of the eight days] is the day in which the child is born and is counted as a whole day, no matter if it is born one hour before sunset, the day is counted as a whole day and also numbered as the FIRST day of the eight days!
The same is true when the new moon is born. No matter what time of day the moon becomes new in [at conjunction], it is considered the first whole day of the new moon, and is counted as a whole day and it is numbered as the FIRST day of the month, even if the conjunction happened one hour before sunset, it is still counted as the FIRST full day. This is the Hebrew mindset of numbering days, and remember our original question, would they have counted the conjunction day as a whole day, and the first day of the month/new moon?
I can give over 200 more examples, but can anyone give a single example to the contrary, i.e. where anyone numbered the day after an event as the first day of it???
Bottom line is, the Scripture is speaking of the day of the baby and the new moon’s birth, NOT the hour of it. Furthermore, with this true method of numbering days, the day that the moon becomes new in and the Sabbath day, will never collide or happen in the same 24hr day as is the case when counting from the next day after conjunction day does.
The following scholar is one of many who understands the true Hebrew method of numbering days, explains it very well, in his commentary on the sign of Jonah.
 
John Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible
Matthew 12:40 he writes,
“For as Jonas 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. ...
To solve this difficulty, and set the matter in a clear light, let it be observed, that the three days and three nights, mean three natural days, consisting of day and night, or twenty four hours, and are what the Greeks callνυχθημερα, "night days"; but the Jews have no other way of expressing them, but as here; and with them it is a well known rule, and used on all occasions, as in thecomputation of their feasts and times of mourning, in the observance of the passover, circumcision, and divers purifications, that מקצת היום ככולו, "a part of a day is as the whole"3:
 
Note that, according to the mindset of the people in the New Testament, they would have understood the commandment of the Almighty in Ezekiel 46:1, which commands us to worship him in the day of the new moon, to mean that the day in which the cycle of the moon became new would be counted as the FIRST whole day of the new cycle!
The above is not that hard to understand. The hard part is breaking the tradition that we were taught. We tend to be motivated by emotions and feelings of what we think, instead of the facts and evidence as to how they numbered. The Scripture teaches thereIS a way that seems right to a man but the end thereof is the ways of death.
A commandment must be specific or it is not any good. There is no specific command to worship on the next day after the new moon has commenced the renewal cycle. There is a commandment to worship him in the day that the moon becomes new, but NOT the next day after.
Jonathan and David were speaking within a 24-hour day, when they said, “tomorrow is the new moon and I will wait here until the third day”.
Notice that the day they were speaking in, was counted as the FIRST DAY of the THREE days, even though the speaking may have began at any hour of the day, it was counted as a whole day. The same is true with the new moon. The moon begins speaking within a day, and the day she is speaking in is also counted as a whole day and is also counted as the FIRST DAY of the month, same as the day in which Jonathan and David began speaking in is the FIRST DAY of the three days!
You can read chapter 6 of Brother Matthew’s article, The Sign of Jonah for more evidence that any part of the day is counted as the whole. The historical and scriptural evidence presented here shows that the whole day in which the moon actually becomes new [at conjunction], no matter what time of day it happens, is numbered as the FIRST day of the month and is counted as a whole day. We must remember that the Scriptures is not speaking of the hour that the moon becomes new, but the day of it!
I have conclusively proven that the whole day in which the Messiah was laid in the tomb [shortly before sunset] was numbered as the first full day of the three days to resurrection, and that the Messiah himself DID NOT wait until the NEXT day after the actual burial and count it as the first day, in order to get a first full 24hr day in the tomb. The day in which he was buried in was counted as a full day and was numbered as the FIRST of the three days.
 The day in which the moon becomes new in is also numbered as the first full day of the 29 days of the new moon/month, and you do not have to wait to the next day to have the first full day of the new moon/month, when using the correct Hebrew method of numbering days. All of this is in addition to the evidence I have already presented!
So when using the correct Hebrew method of numbering days, the answer to the above question number three,
#3.  Would the Messiah have counted the day in which the conjunction occurred, at the point that the moon actually became new, as the first full day of the month/new moon?
The answer to the above question is definitely YES He would. And my prayer is, O YHWH please teach us to number our days correctly, so that we might be at your gate on the right day to keep your apartments, as you commanded us in Ezekiel 46:1.
NEW MOON MISTRY REVEALED
 
On the Hebrew lunar solar calendar, there is a certain solar day each month, in which the lunar month or cycle ends, and a new month begins, and that certain day is the new month day, or new moon day, i.e. THE DAY OF THE NEW MOON.
 
Ezekiel 46:1, “The gate 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.” Ezekiel 46:1, no other day can fulfill the day “of” or “belonging to” the rebuilding or new moon, except the one that it takes place in. There are three, separate, categories of days in Ezekiel 46:1 and they cannot collide or touch each other, and still be separate. In other words, a new moon/month rebuilding, cannot begin in one of the six working days or a Sabbath, and still be a separate day!
 
 Nu 10:10 Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginningsof your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial before your God: I amthe LORD your God
 
The above is referring to the beginning of a lunar month, which begins immediately after conjunction, but in the same day of it, every 29/and 1/2 days. It is a fact that the beginningof a lunar month/moon is the beginning of a new lunar cycle, no matter what solar day it occurs in, and that solar day, the one that the beginning of the month falls in, is the day of the new 

 

New Moon day in creation

Let me start by saying that the very first day of the month in creation began at conjunction, not the day after, and the very first evening to evening day after that, was the first day of the week, NOT the new moon!
You can verify this by reading Genesis 1, where we see that “in the “beginning” [the Hebrew word for “beginning” literally means first or chief, and therefore heaven and earth was created on the chief day] “BEFORE” he said let there be light [at conjunction], and the very first evening to evening day that “followed” this chief day, was the first day of the week, not the first of the month.
The Hebrew word for “were” can mean “followed” the first, or chief day, as was the case in first Kings 16:21, where the same Hebrew word for “were” is actually translated as “followed”.
At any rate, the new moon, or first day of the month in creation began at conjunction, and the first hours of the month were in the first day, NOT on the last day of the month, so why would it begin any different today?
The following shows the lunar month/cycle of the moon for the year 2014 of Pope Gregory’s calendar and how the lunar cycle is corrupted away from the way it is found in nature and the way it was in creation. Below is a chart showing the phases of the moon for 2014, and if it don’t show up you can click on the website.http://society6.com/nicholasacewiinikka/2014-phases-of-the-moon-calendar_stretched-canvas?utm_campaign=1029&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&c_aid=DSAs-US&gclid=COma17_1x8ECFWcF7AodsU0ADA#6=28
Notice how today’s calendar corrupts the lunar cycle count. Notice it ignores the lunar month cycle altogether and counts through the conjunction or beginning of the new moon/lunar month.
There is a way to number our days and scripturally find his appointed times using the lunar cycle as it is found in nature, without corrupting even one hour of it!
When we leave the month in tack, as it is found in nature, it will line up perfectly with the Scripture and the first month in creation. This should be important to all of us.
Just as the above calendar breaks up the lunar cycle, we also can break it up by chopping off the beginning hours of the lunar months and add them back at the end of the month, and count them in with the last day of the month instead of the first day of the month. We do this in order to make our calendar work the way we think it should work, but something is wrong when we have alter nature’ s cycle of the month, even by a few hours. I believe a little leaven leavens the whole lump.
I say we should leave the lunar month cycle in tack, [as found in nature] when numbering our calendar days, and let it begin the same way and place it began in creation instead of causing any part of it to be chopped up like Pope Gregory’s calendar.
The lunar month must not be altered in any way, when following the creation calendar!
We cannot have a full lunar month in tack, as it was in creation, if our count causes it to be disfigured in any way. The whole lunar month cycle must stay intact from beginning to end, i.e. from one conjunction to the next.
If our calendar count causes any part of the “beginning” hours of the new lunar month cycle to be chopped off and added back at the end, or last day of the month, instead of leaving it at the beginning, or first day of the month, as was the case in creation. This is a major corruption of the cycle, and we will miss his appointments!
Why should we do this when there is a scriptural way to use the cycle of the sun and moon to number our days, and find the appointments without altering any part of the lunar cycle?
On the very first day of the month in creation, there was a dark moon in the heavens, and Moses counted the beginning hours of that very first day of the month as the beginning of the month, not at the end, or last day of the month!
There may be explanations as to how the beginning hours of the month wind up being counted at the end of the month today, but it will not line up with the approved example of the new moon in creation?
Is it not a corruption to shift, or alter any part of the lunar cycle that is found in nature?
I believe it is truly a corruption of nature’s lunar cycle when we take the first hours of the new month, and add them to the end of the month, in order to make our calendar work.
Again, the lunar calendar will work perfectly, without having to alter the cycle in any way, and all the days of the month will mimic, or be a carbon copy of the first month of the year in creation. I feel better when I actually see the way I count my month appeared in Scripture.
All the days of the month in creation began at evening except one, and that is the day of the new moon!
Even today, the new lunar month still does not begin at evening. The day of the lunar months/rebuilding does begin at evening, but not the lunar cycle/month itself.
In creation the new moon did not have a specific evening to evening day to begin it, as the other days of the month did. This along distinguishes the day of the new moon, making it unique from all the other days of the month. This pattern is still followed today, when we leave the lunar cycle in tack, as nature intended it.
 In other words, even today, all the days “after” the lunar month cycle begins, still begins at evening, and the beginning of the new moon cycle itself still does not began at evening, when we leave the lunar cycle in tack, which is a perfect example and carbon copy of the creation month.
Even today, the renewing of the cycle, after the old one ends, does not begin at evening, same as there was no evening to begin the new moon day cycle in in creation.
This is why I continually point out the fact that “the DAY of the new moon” is entirely different than the new moon/renewing itself. The day of the new moon does begin at evening, but the new moon/new month does notbegin at evening, it begins immediately after conjunction, no matter what time of day the conjunction happens!
New moon means to re –build, specifically referring to the lunar cycle, and the “solar day” in which this happens “in”, is the day of the rebuilding/new moon, it’s that simple, see Ezekiel 46:1.
At any rate we do not have to use a calendar that corrupts even one hour of the lunar cycle that is found in nature, in order to keep his appointments, and I like that.
The day of the dark new moon commemorates creation, when everything was dark, and is still the chief day, or head of the month, and we should not decapitate the head of his month, in order to make our calendar work the way we think it should work.
The new moon/month is like a beautiful lady, and we should not cut the top of her head off and place it at her feet.
The bottom line is that we can locate his appointed times each month by using the cycle of the moon, and leaving it in tack [Not changing it in any way].
We know he appointed the moon for appointments, and therefore all we have to do is watch the cycle of the moon [instead of changing it] and then follow his instructions as to which days [of the cycle] to worship him on, without altering the cycle of the moon in anyway.
He teaches us to worship him “in” the day of the rebuilding [new moon, or beginning of the new month, Numbers 10:10], and each 7th day after six work days. This simple command can be carried out without adding anything to the command or altering the lunar month in any way.
I acknowledge that the next day after the moon becomes new in, or begins to rebuild in, is the first full day of, or belonging to, the new moon/month, but I also acknowledge it is not the day of the new moon/new re – building, because the moon is already building when that day begins!
The simple command is to worship him “in” the day of the new moon, not the next full day after it.
When we do not add to the command, we do not have to alter the lunar cycle by taking away the “beginning hours” of the month, and placing them on the last day of the month, in order to make our calendar work. The calendar works fine without doing this. 
NEW MOON DAY

New moon means "to rebuild".

I will read Ezekiel 46, and supply new rebuilding for New Moon.

"Thus saith THE Almighty, we are to worship him "on" THE Sabbath, and "in" THE day of the new rebuilding".

Notice: The Sabbath "day" must begin before the worship that occurs "on" it!

Notice also, the New rebuilding "day" must also begin "before" the worship and the rebuilding that occurs on it!

This can only be referring to the very special day of conjunction, because no other day will fit the Hebrew definition for "new" "re"- building!

The Moon is "building" on every day after conjunction, but does not "re"- build in any of them!

There is nothing unique happening on any of the days after conjunction because they all begin and end in an "already building" new moon/month, which began "re" - building after conjunction on the day before, when the old moon/month ended, and the new one began.
 

 It is very simple to find the day of the new moon. All one has to do is find out what day the old moon ends in and by default a new moon will automatically begin simultaneously in that same day, and therefore that day is the day of the new moon. It’s that simple!

In Ezekiel 46:1 – 2, the Almighty commands us to worship him IN the day OF the new moon. The Hebrew definition of new moon is “new month”. A new month begins in the selfsame day that the old one ends in, and as I stated above, that is the day of the new moon/month.

In Numbers 10:10, the Almighty says to blow the trumpet in the day of your gladness, and in the BEGINNINGS of your months! 

The day after the month begins, IS NOT the beginning of the month. The day after the day of the new moon is not the day of the new moon!

Again, the beginning of the month is in the day in which the old month ends and a new one begins, this is an absolute that cannot be intelligently argued against.

 People error when the rush past the simple command to worship IN the day OF the new moon, and allow their emotions and feelings to dictate something contrary to what the command actually says. We must not add to or take away from the commandment, but stay with the evidence instead of emotions and feelings, because there is a way that seems right to a man, but it is not right.

Our opinions and speculations are worthless, UNLESS WE CAN PROVE THEM, because Scripture teaches us to prove all things, and if we cannot conclusively prove something there is no way for us to know for sure that it is right, even though we feel like it is right.

Some things are hidden in simplicity, and they are so simple that we do not see them because we are looking for something more complicated. The Almighty does not give us a command to do something that can be interpreted more than one way, or how else can he judge us?

Again, the Hebrew definition of new moon is “new month”, and all we have to do is find out what day the old month ends in and the new one begins in, and there is nothing else for us to even consider.

 There is a certain 24hr day each month that the moon “becomes new”, and this is the day of the new moon. This is what the Scripture is talking about when it says to worship “in” the day “of” the new moon, i.e. in the day in which it becomes new. There is nothing else to even consider.

 There is ONLY ONE day each month in which the moon “become new” in, and that is the 24hr day in which it actually becomes new when the old moon dies out and the new moon is born at conjunction! This is the day of the new moon and everyone [who is interested] has ways of knowing in advance, which day it happens in. There is nothing else to even consider, and people should not make a mystery out of this simple command in Ezekiel 46:1.

 The Scripture is talking about the cycle of the moon itself, and the 24-hour day in which it becomes new. The Hebrew definition of new moon” is to “be new” or to rebuild. Do people not understand it is talking about the cycle of the moon and the day in which it becomes new? Philo, of the tribe of Levi, who lived during the time of our Savior, certainly did. Philo says that “the law honors the day in which the orbit of the moon ends and the new one begins, by calling that day a “feast”.

 Again, ONLY ONE day can fit the command to worship “in” the day of the new moon, and that is the day in which it becomes new in. The same is true when it says, “on “the” Sabbath and in “the” day of the new moon, Ezekiel 46:1. The Sabbath is one singular day and so is the new moon.

 Ask yourself these questions, what is meant by “new” and when does the moon “become new”? Is the new moon day the day in which it becomes new in? Is the Scripture speaking of the day in which the new moon becomes new in, or another day sometime after that day? Is there something special about the day in which the old moon ends and the new one begins? Is it the only day in which this special astronomical event happens?

 If he had asked us to worship the in the day of the full moon instead of in the day of the new moon, could we understand that the day in which the moon becomes astronomically full [at full moon conjunction] is the day of the full moon?

Think about this

 

Conclusion

 

If the Almighty had commanded us to worship "in the day of" the full moon, instead of "in the day of" the new moon, Ezekiel 46:1, would we still be having a discussion as to when is the full moon?

 

There is only one possible day in which the moon becomes full in, and that is in the day that the full moon conjunction happens BECAUSE from that moment forward, the moon is going down or declining from its fullness, minute by minute, and therefore any day after full moon conjunction day, IS NOT in the day of the full moon! Remember a law or commandment is of no force if it has more than one possible interpretation.

 

The same logic and command applies to the phrase "in the day of the new moon" BECAUSE there is only one possible day in which the moon "becomes new" in, and that is in the day of conjunction, and from that moment forward, the moon ages minute by minute, and therefore any day "after" the moon becomes new in, is not in the day of the new moon, because it is hours old by then!

 

 

When people say that they take the next day after conjunction as the first full 24-hour day of the new moon, this begs the question, when is the new moon???

 

If you are taking the first complete day after it [the day in which the moon became new], in order to have a complete day in it, didn’t the new moon began in the day before the first complete day???

 

When someone says that they take the next day after conjunction, as the first full day, in reality, they are calling the day before, the day in which the moon actually became new, the new moon!

 

How can you say that you take the first complete day of the new month without acknowledging the new month began in the day before the first complete day???

 

Numbers 10:10 teaches that the new moon is in the beginning of the month, in which you blow the silver trumpets, not the next complete day. See also Ezekiel 46:2.

 

Furthermore the definition of new moon is “to be new” NOT the next complete day. The next complete day after the moon became new, is not the day that the moon became new. It is the first 24-hour full day of the rebuilding, but it is not the day of the new moon, in which the month begins. All conjunction plus doctrines is unscriptural.

 

 

The new moon day [conjunction day] is not counted when counting out the weeks, same as was the case in creation.

 

We count the day in which the moon becomes new [at conjunction] as the first day of the new moon. Others count the day in which the moon becomes new [at conjunction] as the 30th day of the month instead of the first, they count it as a Sabbath. This is inconsistent with Scripture and nature.

 

 How can the day in which the new beginning of the cycle occurs, be counted as the last day of the cycle when the Scripture clearly refers to the new moon [to be new] as the first day of the month???

 

We know that in the day in which the conjunction occurs, an old cycle/month ends and a new cycle/month begins simultaneously, but the Scripture does not stress the day in which the old cycle ends, but the day in which the new one begins, see Ezekiel 46:1 and Numbers 10:10. When you count the day of conjunction as the 30th day instead of the 1st, you are stressing the end of the cycle instead of the beginning, contrary to scripture, see Ezekiel 46:1.

 

 

My comments in red. I have been so busy looking at the commandment itself, in Ezekiel 46:1-3, which says, "Eze 46:1 Thus saith the Lord GOD; The gate of the inner court that looketh 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.

 

Eze 46:3 Likewise the people of the land shall worship at the door of this gate before the LORD in the sabbaths and in the new moons.” I haven’t done much Historical research, other than Philo, to see how the ancients understood when the new moon day was.

 

The flowing Historical info shows that as far back as 300 BC, conjunction is called the new moon, which was before the destruction of the Temple, Lamentations 2:6.

 

 Both Berosus, and Aristarchus of Samos, who lived BEFORE Julius Cesar, agree conjunction is called the new moon, or rebuilding day, same as Philo, Ezekiel, and even scientist today. They differ in whether the moon has its own light or not, but otherwise are in agreement that conjunction day is also new moon day, read the following. So for I haven’t found anything, during Temple times and backwards, where the new moon day was known as anything but conjunction!

 

After the destruction of the Temple, when the Almighty caused the feast days and Sabbaths to be forgotten, lamentation 2:6, we see a lot of the conjunction plus doctrines, such as conjunction plus seeing a sliver, conjunction plus next evening to evening etc., the following shows how it was actually understood by the Ancients.

 

Vitruvius Pollio, The Ten Books on Architecture (ed. Morris Hicky Morgan) book 9, chapter 2: ... is consequently hidden and invisible. When she is thus in conjunction with the sun, she is called the new moon.

 

 

 Marcus Vitruvius Pollio (born c. 80–70 BC, died after c. 15 BC), commonly known as Vitruvius, was a Roman author, architect, and engineer during the 1st century BC perhaps best known for his multi-volume work entitled De Architectura. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitruvius#Dewatering_machines

 

Here’s what Vitruvius writes,
 
 CHAPTER II: THE PHASES OF THE MOON

1. ACCORDING to the teaching of Berosus, who came from the state, or rather nation, of the Chaldees, and was the pioneer of Chaldean learning in Asia, the moon is a ball, one half luminous and the rest of a blue colour. When, in the course of her orbit, she has passed below the disc of the sun, she is attracted by his rays and great heat, and turns thither her luminous side, on account of the sympathy between light and light. Being thus summoned by the sun's disc and facing upward, her lower half, as it is not luminous, is invisible on account of its likeness to the air. When she is perpendicular to the sun's rays, all her light is confined to her upper surface, and she is then called the new moon.
2. As she moves on, passing by to the east, the effect of the sun upon her relaxes, and the outer edge of the luminous side sheds its light upon the earth in an exceedingly thin line. This is called the second day of the moon. Day by day she is further relieved and turns, and thus are numbered the third, fourth, and following days. On the seventh day, the sun being in the west and the moon in the middle of the firmament between the east and west, she is half the extent of the firmament distant from the sun, and therefore half of the luminous side is turned toward the earth. But when the sun and moon are separated by the entire extent of the firmament, and the moon is in the east with the sun over against her in the west, she is completely relieved by her still greater distance from his rays, and so, on the fourteenth day, she is at the full, and her entire disc emits its light. On the succeeding days, up to the end of the month, she wanes daily as she turns in her course, being recalled by the sun until she comes under his disc and rays, thus completing the count of the days of the month.
3. But Aristarchus of Samos, a mathematician of great powers, has left a different explanation in his teaching on this subject, as I shall now set forth. It is no secret that the moon has no light of her own, but is, as it were, a mirror, receiving brightness from the influence of the sun. Of all the seven stars, the moon traverses the shortest orbit, and her course is nearest to the earth. Hence in every month, on the day before she gets past the sun, she is under his disc and rays, and is consequently hidden and invisible. When she is thus in conjunction with the sun, she is called the new moon. On the next day, reckoned as her second, she gets past the sun and shows the thin edge of her sphere. Three days away from the sun, she waxes and grows brighter. Removing further every day till she reaches the seventh, when her distance from the sun at his setting is about one half the extent of the firmament, one half of her is luminous: that is, the half which faces toward the sun is lighted up by him.
4. On the fourteenth day, being diametrically across the whole extent of the firmament from the sun, she is at her full and rises when the sun is setting. For, as she takes her place over against him and distant the whole extent of the firmament, she thus receives the light from the sun throughout her entire orb. On the seventeenth day, at sunrise, she is inclining to the west. On the twenty-second day, after sunrise, the moon is about mid-heaven; hence, the side exposed to the sun is bright and the rest dark. Continuing thus her daily course, she passes under the rays of the sun on about the twenty-eighth day, and so completes the account of the month.
I will next explain how the sun, passing through a different sign each month, causes the days and hours to increase and diminish in length.

 POEM
 
I am the day

On the very first day of the new month in creation the sun moon and earth were in line this is called conjunction day the beginning of time, this is me, the day of the new moon when everything is in line just like in creation at the beginning of time

I am the day of the new Moon the beginning of time I commemorate the creation when the sun moon and earth were all in a perfect line. 

No other day can claim this honor, it was bestowed on me by the creator himself and
In no other day do the planets align therefore no other day commemorates the beginning of time

Even nature itself shows that I am chief day and the beginning of time for in no other day do the planets align 

I truly am a very special day and it is the creator that made it that way. 

It was in me that heaven and earth were created, and in no other day is this event related, for it was in me alone the heavens were created and it is from me that even the Sabbaths are dated, Yes I am the day of the new moon and I deserve honor 

I am the chief day and no other day can take my place because it was in me he began the race. 

Although The sun is a little faster than the moon, one day each month they will come together soon and it is in me the race begins anew for it is  only in me the planets know what to do. 

No other day can take my place for none of them actually begin the race. In none of them does the month re-new and therefore do not fit the definition of new Moon in the Hebrew.

 It is only in me the race begins and ends and no other day is given this honor by the creator of days and we must acknowledge him in all of our ways

Yes, the moon catches up one day each month they get together in me again same as in creation when time began

The race always begins in me , and that's what makes me special you see, and no other day can take my place for in me is the beginning of the race

Yes I am a very special day no matter what one might say, all creation began in me and that is why I am special you see

I am not the new moon, It is a New lunar cycle, but I am the solar day of the New Moon because it begins in me and that is why I'm special you see

Please don't try to take away the honor he bestowed upon me because I commemorate creation that's the way it was meant to be

Yes, I am the chief day when the sun moon and earth align just like in creation at the beginning of time

Time begins in no other day and it was The Almighty that made it that way it was his doings and not our own and I suggest we leave it alone

Yes, I, the new Moon am a very special day I am not like any of the other days of the month for it is in me one lunar month ends and a new one begins

It is In me when each month becomes new, it also re-builds and re-news in me each and every month and in me even though all the other days of the month the moon builds, they do not re-build in any of them.

In me the new Moon begins and that's why I am called the day of the new Moon

I am a unique day, unlike all the other days of the month, I commemorate creation when everything was lined up ready to go

It was dark when I was made, In the beginning when the foundation was laid.

I began and was brought forth before the conjunction of light I still begin before the conjunction each  month

Again, it is in me that the sun moon and earth aline and in me was the beginning of time

In me each month a commemoration of creation is made because It was in me that the foundations was laid, I truly am the chief day, And nothing anyone might say can take that away.

No other day of the month is like me , where one month ends and another begins and that is why I am unique you see, there's no other day of the month like me 

Say what you will but no other day can fit the bill, for in me the month becomes new, In me the month begins to renew I am a carbon copy of the new Moon day in creation when the Sun moon and Earth were in line.

It was in me that the trumpets begin to be blown and the angels shouted as he stretch forth the heavens alone.

The month does not begin in any other day, that is a fact, so what else can I say?
 
From Philo
Philo uses inclusive reckoning when counting from new moon to the end of a 30 day month.
We will see from the following, that he is actually calling the conjunction day, the new moon, and the first day of the 30 day month.
ON DREAMS,11. [257] page 559 of the FH Colson translation of Philo, Philo states that the word “from” has two meanings, one where the thing fromwhich what we are describing starts isincluded, the other where it is excluded.
 For when we say that there are 12 hours from early morning to evening, or30 days from new moon to the end of the month, we take into our reckoningthe first hours in the former case and the new moon itself in the later.”
Notice, in order to have 30 days in a lunar month, which is from oneconjunction to the next, the day of the first the first conjunction [which he calls new moon] must be included in the count, as one whole day of the 30 day month. And Philo calls “it” [the day of conjunction] the new moon!
He says that one of the meanings of the word “from” is where thing from which what we are describing starts isincluded, which is a new rebuilding moon cycle at conjunction.
Inclusive Reckoning counting
The conclusion of this whole debate depends on how the ancients numbered the days. It doesn’t matter what we think concerning counting, but whether or notthey counted the day of the “new” new moon cycle, as the first day of the rebuilding/new moon cycle, or the next day after the new rebuilding cycle had already begun.
It is very easy to prove [by many Scriptures] that the common mode of counting employed in the Bible is shown to have been inclusive reckoning, that is, counting both the first and the last unit of time in calculating an interval.
The Messiah said he would rise thethird day, and was placed in the tomb late on the, 14th, before the day ended, and he numbered that whole day of the 14th, as the first day to the resurrection on the third day. Another example in first Samuel 20: shows that the partial day in which Jonathan and David were speaking in, was counted as a whole day, and included in the count to thethird day.
ALL the days of Noah were 950 years”. Genesis 9:29, which included the day of his birth and his death.
This method was also used generally by other ancient nations, as is shown unmistakably by source documents. An Egyptian inscription recording the death of a priestess on the 4th day of the 12th month relates that her successor arrived on the 15th, “when 12 days had elapsed.” This shows that they counted or included the day of her death in with the 12 days. This unmistakably showsinclusive counting [which includes the day that something happened in] was observed, not only by Hebrews, but by other ancient nations as well.
Greeks also followed the sameinclusive method, same as people today. If the Scripture had said to number so many days, and used the phrase “in the day of the old moon’s end”, instead of in the day of the newmoon”, that day would be included with the so many days, same as the new moon, which Scripture does mention, is included with the number of days of the month.
Here are two websites which gives many Scriptures and other evidence in addition to the above.http://www.wednesdaycrucifixion.com/inclusive-reckoning.html and
 
What does all this mean? It means that the ancients counted the day in which the new moon began to rebuild in, as the first day of the 29½ days of the month. And so should we.
 
 It also means that this ends the debate for those who can accept this undeniable fact, regardless of what they think, because it shows
 that the ancients included [inclusive reckoning] the day in which the new moon cycle actually becomes new in, or begins to rebuild “IN”, as the first day of the new moon/month, NOT the next day! This is an absolute!
 
All this is in perfect harmony with Ezekiel 46:1, where He says, for us to worship him “IN” the day, [not the hour] of the new moon rebuilding, which means the new moon day had to begin before the new moon/rebuilding!
 
Remember, it does not matter what we think, but what they thought! We must go by the facts and evidence and not by our emotions.
Ps. ALL Scholars are in agreement that this is the way they counted!
 
 Brother Arnold www.lunarsabbath.info Philo
Philo uses inclusive reckoning when counting from new moon to the end of a 30 day month.
We will see from the following, that he is actually calling the conjunction day, the new moon, and the first day of the 30 day month.
ON DREAMS,11. [257] page 559 of the FH Colson translation of Philo, Philo states that the word “from” has two meanings, one where the thing fromwhich what we are describing starts isincluded, the other where it is excluded.
 For when we say that there are 12 hours from early morning to evening, or30 days from new moon to the end of the month, we take into our reckoningthe first hours in the former case and the new moon itself in the later.”
Notice, in order to have 30 days in a lunar month, which is from oneconjunction to the next, the day of the first the first conjunction [which he calls new moon] must be included in the count, as one whole day of the 30 day month. And Philo calls “it” [the day of conjunction] the new moon!
He says that one of the meanings of the word “from” is where thing from which what we are describing starts isincluded, which is a new rebuilding moon cycle at conjunction.

Inclusive Reckoning counting
The conclusion of this whole debate depends on how the ancients numbered the days. It doesn’t matter what we think concerning counting, but whether or notthey counted the day of the “new” new moon cycle, as the first day of the rebuilding/new moon cycle, or the next day after the new rebuilding cycle had already begun.
It is very easy to prove [by many Scriptures] that the common mode of counting employed in the Bible is shown to have been inclusive reckoning, that is, counting both the first and the last unit of time in calculating an interval.
The Messiah said he would rise thethird day, and was placed in the tomb late on the, 14th, before the day ended, and he numbered that whole day of the 14th, as the first day to the resurrection on the third day. Another example in first Samuel 20: shows that the partial day in which Jonathan and David were speaking in, was counted as a whole day, and included in the count to thethird day.
ALL the days of Noah were 950 years”. Genesis 9:29, which included the day of his birth and his death.
This method was also used generally by other ancient nations, as is shown unmistakably by source documents. An Egyptian inscription recording the death of a priestess on the 4th day of the 12th month relates that her successor arrived on the 15th, “when 12 days had elapsed.” This shows that they counted or included the day of her death in with the 12 days. This unmistakably showsinclusive counting [which includes the day that something happened in] was observed, not only by Hebrews, but by other ancient nations as well.
Greeks also followed the sameinclusive method, same as people today. If the Scripture had said to number so many days, and used the phrase “in the day of the old moon’s end”, instead of in the day of the newmoon”, that day would be included with the so many days, same as the new moon, which Scripture does mention, is included with the number of days of the month.
Here are two websites which gives many Scriptures and other evidence in addition to the above.http://www.wednesdaycrucifixion.com/inclusive-reckoning.html and
 
What does all this mean? It means that the ancients counted the day in which the new moon began to rebuild in, as the first day of the 29½ days of the month. And so should we.
 
 It also means that this ends the debate for those who can accept this undeniable fact, regardless of what they think, because it shows
 that the ancients included [inclusive reckoning] the day in which the new moon cycle actually becomes new in, or begins to rebuild “IN”, as the first day of the new moon/month, NOT the next day! This is an absolute!
 
All this is in perfect harmony with Ezekiel 46:1, where He says, for us to worship him “IN” the day, [not the hour] of the new moon rebuilding, which means the new moon day had to begin before the new moon/rebuilding!
 
Remember, it does not matter what we think, but what they thought! We must go by the facts and evidence and not by our emotions.
Ps. ALL Scholars are in agreement that this is the way they counted!
