The Lunar-Solar Secrets
The Beginning of Months
December 31, 2011
by DJ. Love, Bnei HaMashalim
I have waited years before writing this message, and I am only writing it now,
because (after many years of thorough research, careful
consideration, and Spiritual discernment) the truth of this harmonious
message has become "Spiritually Self-evident". I, also, believe that
YHVH has revealed His Truth on this important subject to me, and, therefore, I feel obligated
to share this Revelation with you.
Believe me, I am fully aware of all the various methods for determining "The Beginning
of Months", and I have participated in a number of the "Aviv Barley" versus "The
Equinox" discussions. Additionally, there is the added factors of just exactly when does
a "New Moon" begin; is it by calculation or crescent, waxing crescent
or waning crescent, and if by crescent then is it our local crescent or the crescent
in Jerusalem? And if that didn't complicate things enough, then there is even more chaos and
confusion as to whether or not a "New Moon" is bright with light or dark? Now
you and I know that YHVH is not the author of confusion (
1 Corinthians 14:33 ), and YHVH would not put upon His "Chosen
Few" anything that would prevent them from proper observation of His Sabbaths (weekly
or Annual). So then, just what is it that I claim YHVH has revealed to
me that could possibly make the pieces of the puzzle fit together. Well first of all, let me
categorically state that there is only one verse in Scripture (Tanakh
- Older Testament), and no verses in the Apostolic writings (controversial
New Testament translations) that positively state(s) that YHVH has provided
His "Chosen" with any other method than astronomical observation (this
does not mean astrology!). As a matter of fact, this was of such
importance that YHVH established these as signs for days, weeks, seasons, and years even before He
created the first intelligent human beings (Adam and
And God said, Let there be lights (Sun,
Moon, Stars, Comets) in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day (Light) from
the night (Dark); and let them
be for signs (Prophetic), and
for seasons (Beginning of Months or Spring),
and for days, and years:
Nowhere, in the establishment of "The Foundations of The Earth" does
YHVH state or even hint that a food crop (such as barley) would
be a determining factor. Actually barley (a Grass) was
made a factor by man for the sake of man's convenience, and was not done so in obedience (More
about that later).
9 And Elohim (YHVH) said, Let
the waters under the heaven be gathered together to one place, and let the dry land appear:
and it was so.
10 And Elohim (YHVH) called the
dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and Elohim (YHVH) saw
that it was good.
11 And Elohim (YHVH) said, Let
the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after
his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree
yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and Elohim (YHVH) saw
that it was good.
13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.
So, what method(s) has YHVH seen fit to teach His "Chosen", so that we, "The
Obedient", (by Spiritual Intent) can
unravel the mysteries and remove the cloaks of chaos placed on YHVH's Sabbaths? Actually the
method is so simple that it makes me sad that it took so long to discover; but I need to draw
a parallel between the phases of the Moon and the phases of a twenty-four
hour day in order to reveal it. Remember we must use the presence of Light and
the absence of Light (Darkness) of
the sky (Sun, Moon, Stars) as our
guide. But first let me state that the reason YHVH uses "The Presence of Light" and "The
Absence of Light" (darkness) is
so that His "Chosen" can clearly understand the importance of our Spiritual
Marriage Vows (Love and Obedience to His Commandments),
and also, to discern the "Logos" (Plan
of Salvation) through His Sabbaths and His "Spokesman" (Messiah
Yahshua) . Additionally, each person that has ever been born must come
to the knowledge of Good (Light) and evil (darkness).
We have no choice except to choose whether we will learn from the mistakes of others
and-or from our own mistakes.
does mean "Plan," and The Messiah is-was a very important aspect of YHVH's "Plan
of Salvation" on behalf of His "Chosen Few", but Messiah is not the
only important aspect of YHVH's "Plan of Salvation".
4 And the serpent said to the woman, you shall not surely die:
5 For YHVH does know that in the day you eat there of, then your eyes shall be opened, and
you shall be likened to immortals, knowing good (Light) and evil(darkness).
Yes, to choose between Light and Darkness is of such prime importance, that every
living thing (plant and animal) ever
established on Earth has had to adapt to this environment. But the Light and Darkness in
our lives has been such a major everyday part of our lives that we tend to ignore it; sort
of blank it out. Too bad, as YHVH uses "The Nature of Things" to teach
His Truth and to reveal Himself to us.
20 For the invisible things of Him from the foundation (creation) of
the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that
are made (Created), even
His eternal power and Divinity; so that they are without excuse:
Having said all of that, it is now time to draw the parallels between the phases of the 24
hour day and the phases of the Moon.
The Phases of a 24
hour day and the phases of the Moon, are both the resultant of the position of the Sunlight
on the Earth and on the Moon, and are so interrelated, as to be completely inseparable.
The 24 Hour Day
or Dusk (The
The point when Sunlight and Darkness start to
be equal or even on the surface of a specific area of the Earth, but the Sun is no
longer directly visible. This is when the Passover meal is served, but a new day does
not fully occur until shadows disappear.
When darkness and light on the surface of the moon
are equal (or even),
but the darkness is waxing (growing)
and light is waning (declining).
When we see this phase we know that we are approaching the beginning of a new month.
Sunset and Twilight

When the last faint rays of Sunlight fall upon the surface
of the Earth. A New Day is about to begin. All Sabbaths are fully in force after
Twilight (Civil Twilight).
Last Visible Crescent
When the last faint rays of Sunlight can be seen on
the surface of the Moon and a thin "Sliver of Light" is present. All
New Months are fully in force after the surface of the moon becomes fully dark.
No direct Sunlight visible
When Sunlight no longer falls upon a specific surface
of the Earth. The New Day is fully in force.
No direct or reflected Sunlight visible
When Sunlight no longer falls upon the visible surface
of the Moon. The New Month is fully in force.
So there you have it, the undeniable evidence of the YHVH created (natural) parallel
relationship between the Sun, Earth and Moon with that the Righteous Relationship of Light (Good) and
Darkness (Evil). Does anybody believe
that this relationship is by mere coincidence? And Yes, the parallel relationship does continue
for the approximately 24 hour day and the approximately 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes, and
28 seconds month; only now the Light is growing (waxing) during
the other half of the cycle, and appears on the opposite side of both the Moon and the Earth.
Does anyone anywhere actually believe that "Perfect" YHVH would take
the least chance of associating "Good" (Light) with "Evil" (darkness).
2 Corinthians 6:14
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what
fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what
communion hath light with darkness?

Remember: It is not how we view the
Sun, but it is how we view the LIGHT of the Sun on the surface of the Moon and the surface
of the Earth that is important.

Does anybody think that the symbolism between Light and darkness is merely by chance?
Does anybody think that this same "Light & Dark" relationship between
Weekly Sabbaths, The Beginning of Days, Annual Sabbaths, and The Beginning of Months is merely
coincidence? YHVH Forbid ! It was YHVH alone that set the Sun, Moon, and Stars in the heavens,
and No One Else; And YHVH never does anything in a haphazard manner; Everything that can be "Planned
in Advance" or "Predestined to Exist" was established from "The Foundations
of The Earth" (including Messiah).
Absolutely nothing was left to chance.

Do I actually need to continue? People,
YHVH is sending us messages through His Creation (The
Things He has made), and we need to open our Spiritual eyes and ears
to receive them. There is no other way out of the darkness, and for this reason YHVH
based His Sacred Calendar and His Holy Sabbaths on the symbolism of LIGHT and DARK.
Scientist have recently discovered through observation that YHVH left "Us" another clue. Only man is just now recognizing it. It is called "The Civil Twilight Equilux" (Click on link).
YHVH wants us all to realize that we are not presently in His "Coming
Kingdom on Earth", but from "The Beginning" We
were immersed into a world of darkness. Therefore the symbolism of DARK before LIGHT,
Evening before Morning (Genesis 1),
the Seventh Day Sabbath is at the end of the week, the 6000 years of Satan's Rule is followed
by "The Sabbath Millennium" and Messiah's Rule, and dark moons are used
to determine the "Beginning of Months," which Culminate in Spiritual Light (on
the 15th day of
each month of The Sacred Calendar) in the exact same way that darkness
gives way to Light in the phases of the Moon and in a 24 hour day. Is YHVH trying
to send US mixed messages (Chaos)?
I THINK NOT !
The Number 15 is
most significant, as it has always Scripturally represented "Deliverance." Now
I ask you, how can anything other than a bright "Full Moon" be
symbolic of "Deliverance" from evil or the darkness of sin? IT
SIMPLY CANNOT !
However, I am sure HaSatan (human nature) is
responsible for mankind's chaos! Additionally, there is not one instance in all of YHVH's symbolism
where Light is to begin before Dark! It is always darkness that must
give way to "The Light." Therefore, I can tell you (ALL) without
any reservation that YHVH's Months begin with the DARK MOON. There is
simply no other Righteous correlation that can be drawn that is perfectly in keeping with YHVH
symbolism for the instruction of His Children.
Having said all of that, this method is, also, the easiest and most observable method
that there is, and it is consistently observable by even the most untrained eye. It is
simply Spiritually accurate to watch the waning (disappearing
crescent) light of the coming DARK MOON until that crescent
of light is no longer observable, and then on that first night (with
no crescent light on the moon) declare (by
Shofar or Trumpet) that the New Month has begun (in
darkness). No guessing or Math required ! . . . . . EVEN
SO . . . . . I still contend that YHVH's first priority is to His "Chosen", and for
this reason He uses the symbolism of LIGHT and DARK to teach "Us" Truth and Prophecy.
However, I do not believe, that even if it were overcast for days and we could not easily
observe the beginning of the DARK MOON (no crescent),
that YHVH would be a legalist any more than He expects His "Chosen" to be legalists.
The "Intent of YHVH's Heart" is to teach His "Chosen", and
the "Intent of Our Hearts" should be to learn from our Eternal Father
according to the method that he has chosen for us (Romans
1:20), which is physical to Spiritual symbolism (Parables,
Prophecy, Anthropomorphisms, etc.), and Commandments (which
teach Love and Marriage).
The correlation between Light and Dark, and Days and Months is
simply too strong to be coincidence or deniable.
So what about Aviv Barley?
Using barley (or any crop), whether
it is wild, hybrid, standard or indigenous to Israel or Egypt is not consistent with
Genesis Chapter One nor is it seasonally consistent at all. There are more than 3500 chromosomal
variations of barley, and barley has a ripening time that is dependent on planting time, variety,
weather, and the individual farmer. Earliest varieties have been known to ripen six to eight
weeks prior to later ripening varieties.
So why the aviv barley question at all?
Well, it seems that a few Karaite priests thought it was a good idea to introduce this as a
method for determining "The Annual Beginning of Months (first
day)". One must wonder at their motive for doing so, as they
have been in competition with the Pharisees and saducees for a very long time. In reality neither
The Pharisees, The Saducees, The Karaites Nor any other Levitical Styled Priesthood qualify
for inclusion into The Coming Kingdom of YHVH on Earth, as they are all legalists, and do not
comprehend "Romans 1:20", "The Intent of The Heart" or
the depths of "Light and Darkness"; neither do they accept that there
has ever been a Messiah to make Spiritual understanding available to "The First
Fruits" (The Chosen Few).
Now I am not saying that Aviv (Abib
or Nissan) barley or wheat doesn't have it symbolism with prophecy,
because it does. Wheat symbolizes
"The Chosen Few" (Firstfruit
of The Spring Harvest), while barley symbolizes Messiah Yahshua; "The
First" of "The Firstfruits". This is demonstrated in the comparison chart below.
Moreover, there is no longer a Standing Temple or a Levitical High priest to wave the physical Omer (Wave
Sheaf) on the morning following the "First Seventh Day Shabbat"
that follows the last day of The Feast of Unleavened Bread during the First Month of Abib (Aviv).
The "Chosen" on the other hand have Messiah Yahshua as their (our) High
Priest; For it is "The Chosen" (symbolically
represented by wheat) that are being Spiritually waved (presented) to
YHVH by Messiah. The physical barley is specifically symbolic of "The First of The First
Fruits" (Messiah). Even so,
we should teach the history and understanding imparted by this symbolic physical to Spiritual
parallel or anthropomorphism.
Let this be a lesson well learned,
as this lesson has not always been known or understood.
Just as "The Chosen" (The
Elect or Children of GOD) those who will take part in "The
First Resurrection" are referred to in Scripture as "The First Fruits." Let
it be known that Messiah is, also, one of "The First Fruits," but Messiah
was / is "The First" of "The First Fruits."
Messiah (YahShua) is our elder
brother and purely a human being (as we all
are), and we (The First Fruits) have
all been "Chosen" by YHVH to perform a specific task in YHVH's "Plan
of Salvation". All the inspired "Words of YHVH" (whether
included in The Bible or not) were only written for "The
Chosen Few" by "The Chosen Few" (who
existed at different times on Earth). However, because Messiah is "The
First" of "The First Fruits" (begotten
chosen humans) Messiah is, also, symbolically represented by "The
First" of "The Grain First Fruits" (Barley),
while the rest of "The Chosen Few" are symbolically represented by
Wheat (and other first fruits) during "The
Feast of First Fruits" (aka "The
Feast of Weeks").
Does anyone recall barley being grown by the ancient Israelites while they wandered in the
wilderness for 40 years? If they had bread, then why did they need manna? And yet, Passover
and Unleavened Bread were still celebrated without the understanding of the barley symbolism
then, as it was during the 70 years of captivity in Babylon, and as it has, also, been
for the last 2,000 years. This was because barley was reserved by YHVH to only represent
Messiah to those with Spiritual Ears to Hear and Eyes to See. Perhaps they were able to
gather enough wild barley in those days for ceremonial purposes, but there is no mention
for the priests to wait on the barley to ripen nor is the variety of barley now known.
So what about The Vernal Equinox ?
Were the Ancient Israelite capable of understanding the Equinoxes (when
the length in time of the Light of day is supposed to, but does NOT actually equal the length
in time of the darkness of night)? Absolutely, and Moses did too.
Only modern science has discovered that the Egyptian pyramids were perfectly aligned East to
West and North to South, and thus capable of being used to determine when the visible Spring or Vernal
Equinox has occurred. However, it is not the equinoxes that should be measured, but the time between
the "Civil Twilights" of both dusk and dawn that should be even (equal) for the whole Earth, as well as each and every day. This is now known as "Civil Twilight" for each day, and "The Civil Twilight Equilux" (Click) for The Earth.
22 And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words
and in deeds.
But for me, it just makes Spiritual sense, that while YHVH does symbolically begin each day
and, also, each month in darkness; YHVH would not establish His annual Holy Sabbaths
as long as darkness ruled the month (phase
of the moon). "Passover", and "Unleavened
Bread" (First Annual Sabbath of
the first month) should not take place as long as darkness rules (greater
than or equal to 50% of ) the moon's visible surface. YHVH's "Appointed
Feast Days" (symbolizing Deliverance) should
never take place during the darkness of a New Moon. The symbolism would be
totally wrong, and make YHVH's Instructions inconsistent and of no avail. YHVH is
totally without variance in matters of Light and Dark.
"Dusk" (Civil Twilight as measured
by the light reaching the Earth versus other methods) should always be
used to mark the point when darkness no longer rules the day. Therefore, the time period
between the "Evens" (Dusk
and Dawn) or
"Civil Twilight" should be used to determine which New Moon is used
to establish "The Beginning of Months".
Moreover, it is not enough that a fully Dark New Moon occurs after the
New Day begins (Dusk); the fully
Dark New Moon must be fully Dark for the entire 24 hour period from dusk to dusk. This then
will be the First Day of The Sacred New Year or "The Beginning of Months". This
too will be explained in greater detain within the next few pages.
