Sabbath - When is it?

After reading and rereading the creation account over and over again, my finite reasoning abilities have not been able to discern the new moon that some of my friends tell me preexisted the seven days of creation week.

As a believer in the Scripture and the Elohim of Scripture I wholeheartedly accept the Genesis 1 account of creation and Genesis 1:1-2:4 simply does not mention the new moon. Genesis 1 and 2 only mention the seven days of creation week.

The problem comes when the Almighty simply made no mention of a new moon prior to creation week. If the new moon is the regulatory force for the weekly cycle as some of my friends are teaching today, then there is no doubt that the new moon would have to preexist the weekly cycle at creation. Here in Genesis 1 is the ideal place for heavenly Father to make it clear to His children for time and eternity and yet He simply did not mention the new moon. Because of the lack of evidence in Scripture and especially the creation account, I do not accept the moon as the regulatory force for the weekly cycle.

The Pre-Creation Phantom New Moon

Some how or another my friends that choose to regulate the weekly cycle by the moon read into the following passage a phantom new moon that preceded the first day of creation week.

 Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of Elohim moved upon the face of the waters.
1:3 And Elohim said, Let there be light: and there was light.
1:4 And Elohim saw the light, that [it was] good: and Elohim divided the light from the darkness.
1:5 And Elohim called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

After reading and meditating upon the above passage I have concluded that the only thing that existed prior to creation week on planet earth was darkness and void. After this there was light and darkness, evening and morning which is what a day is made of. After six of these evenings and mornings there was the Shabbat evening and morning and this is what constituted a week. 

A new moon is a NEW moon and there must be an old moon for there to be a new moon. The creation of light and darkness does not constitute a new moon but it does constitute a day.

Just like there was no Adam before Adam was formed and YHWH breathed breath into his nostrils so there was no day that existed prior to the first of the seven evenings and mornings.

The Hebrew Creation Week - Fact or Fiction?
You Be the Judge

Days of Creation week according the the Hebrews
who just so happen to be the authors of Scripture

It is pitiful that the so called British "Israelites" are so backwards and rebellious when giving names to the days of creation week. 
What confuses me is why couldn't the British have at least had sense enough to name the seventh day of creation week something similar to the original Hebrew like Sabbath? Maybe they had so much Jew hatred in their blood that they just could not face the reality of Shabbat and the fact that Judah loved and kept the commandments all these years in spite of the opposition of Rome so they decided to make an effort at creating their own reality just as many idolaters do.

Where in the Scripture do we see that Saturday is the Sabbath?

Some may ask why I can not show from Scripture alone that every Saturday is the Shabbat of the fourth commandment?

The answer to this question is quite simple.

The Scripture is a Jewish book written by Hebrew speaking people. The word Saturday simply is not in the Hebrew dictionary. So just because some pagan people group that hated the commandments of Yah and worshipped the gods of the Druids (British) named the seventh day of creation week Saturday
 is no reason for us to reject the creation Shabbat. We have no excuse for denying the week of creation that has never been lost track of and has been carried down through the millennia by the Hebrew Patriarchs, Prophets, Apostles as well as the Reformers.

So there is no need to show the word Saturday in scripture because the word Saturday does not exist in Scripture but rather the name Shabbat does exist and that is a Hebrew word and the Hebrew people are the ones that have held and protected this word as well as the cycle of the weeks down through the course of HIStory.
There is no excuse for rejecting the weekly Shabbat for doing so indicates anti-Judaic (AKA Jew hater, Hitler, Nazi, Haman ,Ahmadinejad) behavior.

Stoned to Death for Violating the Sabbath

Numbers 15:32 And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day.
15:33 And they that found him gathering sticks brought him unto Moses and Aaron, and unto all the congregation.
15:34 And they put him in ward, because it was not declared what should be done to him.
15:35 And YHWH said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones without the camp.
15:36 And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and stoned him with stones, and he died; as YHWH commanded Moses.

Man Executed For Gathering Sticks Upon the Sabbath Day.

Get the picture?

This is how the Israelites were told to say "Happy Sabbath!" to the man that decided he was going to teach Yahuwah a lesson and gather sticks on Shabbat. Some people just have to lean the hard way I guess.

Eventually I expect that YHWH will deliver a similar sentence against all seventh day Shabbat breakers on a global scale and upon all that continue in the presumptuous sin of violating the Shabbat day.

"The mixed multitude that came up with the Israelites from Egypt were a source of continual temptation and trouble. They professed to have renounced idolatry and to worship the true God; but their early education and training had molded their habits and character, and they were more or less corrupted with idolatry and with irreverence for God. They were oftenest the ones to stir up strife and were the first to complain, and they leavened the camp with their idolatrous practices and their murmurings against God. {PP 408.3}
Soon after the return into the wilderness, an instance of Sabbath violation occurred, under circumstances that rendered it a case of peculiar guilt. The Lord's announcement that He would disinherit Israel had roused a spirit of rebellion. One of the people, angry at being excluded from Canaan, and determined to show his defiance of God's law, ventured upon the open transgression of the fourth commandment by going out to gather sticks upon the Sabbath. During the sojourn in the wilderness the kindling of fires upon the seventh day had been strictly prohibited. The prohibition was not to extend to the land of Canaan, where the severity of the climate would often render fires a necessity; but in the wilderness, fire was not needed for warmth. The act of this man was a willful and deliberate violation of the fourth commandment--a sin, not of thoughtlessness or ignorance, but of presumption. {PP 408.4}
He was taken in the act and brought before Moses. It had already been declared that Sabbathbreaking should be punished with death, but it had not yet been revealed how the penalty was to be inflicted. The case was brought by Moses before the Lord, and the direction was given, "The man shall be surely put to death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones without the camp." Numbers 15:35. The sins of blasphemy and willful Sabbathbreaking received the same punishment, being equally an expression of contempt for the authority of God. {PP 409.1}
In our day there are many who reject the creation Sabbath as a Jewish institution and urge that if it is to be kept, the penalty of death must be inflicted for its violation; but we see that blasphemy received the same punishment as did Sabbathbreaking. Shall we therefore conclude that the third commandment also is to be set aside as applicable only to the Jews? Yet the argument drawn from the death penalty applies to the third, the fifth, and indeed to nearly all the ten precepts, equally with the fourth. Though God may not now punish the transgression of His law with temporal penalties, yet His word declares that the wages of sin is death; and in the final execution of the judgment it will be found that death is the portion of those who violate His sacred precepts. {PP 409.2}
During the entire forty years in the wilderness, the people were every week reminded of the sacred obligation of the Sabbath, by the miracle of the manna. Yet even this did not lead them to obedience. Though they did not venture upon so open and bold transgression as had received such signal punishment, yet there was great laxness in the observance of the fourth commandment. God declares through His prophet, "My Sabbaths they greatly polluted." Ezekiel 20:13-24. And this is enumerated among the reasons for the exclusion of the first generation from the Promised Land. Yet their children did not learn the lesson. Such was their neglect of the Sabbath during the forty years' wandering, that though God did not prevent them from entering Canaan, He declared that they should be scattered among the heathen after the settlement in the Land of Promise." {PP 409.3}

As far as I am concerned, the latter part of the following paragraph describes both the people that observe Sunday as well as the so called lunar "Sabbath". Both choose a method of calculating the weekly cycle that was never commanded by Scripture and by following in the sparks of their own kindling, they are gathering the wrath of Yahuwah against the day of Yahuwah's vengeance upon His enemies.

"Before the Fall our first parents had kept the Sabbath, which was instituted in Eden; and after their expulsion from Paradise they continued its observance. They had tasted the bitter fruits of disobedience, and had learned what every one that tramples upon God's commandments will sooner or later learn--that the divine precepts are sacred and immutable, and that the penalty of transgression will surely be inflicted. The Sabbath was honored by all the children of Adam that remained loyal to God. But Cain and his descendants did not respect the day upon which God had rested. They chose their own time for labor and for rest, regardless of Jehovah's express command." {PP 80.3}

Exodus 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
20:9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
20:10 But the seventh day [is] the sabbath of Yahuwah thy elohim: [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:
20:11 For [in] six days Yahuwah made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them [is], and rested the seventh day: wherefore Yahuwah blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Please notice that the forth Commandment clearly states that Yahuwah made all things in six days. Nothing is mentioned concerning the new moon that prexisted the six days of creation.

Exodus 31:14 Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it [is] holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth [any] work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.
31:15 Six days may work be done; but in the seventh [is] the sabbath of rest, holy to Yahuwah: whosoever doeth [any] work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.
31:16 Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, [for] a perpetual covenant.
31:17 It [is] a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for [in] six days Yahuwah made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.

Thank Yahuwah that we do not have to concern ourselves with any execution duties and that YHWH is the final Judge and executioner in these matters. Read Revelation 16 for further details and a clearer picture on how He will perform the grizzly and just execution against all Sabbath breakers on a global scale.

In keeping a clear conscious before Elohim and men I have taken a public stand against any man made weekly cycle that conflicts with the creation week which is celebrated by Jews and non Jews alike around the world. I encourage all men everywhere to reject the tradition of men in attempting to regulate the weekly cycle by the moon and encourage all to hold fast that which is good. The Seven day weekly cycle has never been lost from the creation of the world and I love celebrating the shabbat every seven days just as the commandment instructs us to do.

Remember that it is not so much that Yahuwah's children keep Shabbat as it is that Shabbat keeps Yahuwah's children.
