Taking Creation week in Genesis 1, Shabbat Hagadol, Passover, Leviticus 23, Numbers chapter 10, and the destruction of the first and second Temple on the 9th of Av can we find the Calendar that Yahushua kept?
Creation Week, begins with Elohim saying ,” Let there be Light”, on the First Day of the week and the 7th Day is the first weekly Sabbath, when Elohim rested from all His work.
On Day 4 of Creation Week the sun, moon and stars were revealed. The sun, moon and stars are luminaries used to calculate our yearly cycles and maybe the counting of the calendar begins on Day 4.
Could we from this Creation Week, say that the Sabbath Day is Day 7 of the calendar count. Or could we say that Day 4 is the calendar count ,as counting from the fourth day, the day the sun, moon and stars were revealed, to the Seventh day, gives us a Day 4 for the first weekly Sabbath.
So from the Creation Week we can find the first weekly Sabbath. It will be the 7th Day or the 4th Day.
So the next weekly Sabbath must be the 14th day or the 11th day.
In Rabbinical Judaism they have the 10th day of the First month as a Great weekly Sabbath,called the Shabbat Hagadol, the day Moses was told to get the lambs for Passover. Yahushua also rode into Jerusalem on this 10th day. The Torah tells us that we can not ride a beast or buy on the Weekly Sabbath. Are Yahushua and Moses breaking Torah?
Yahushua was crucified in the year 30AD and in this year, the Pharisees Lunar Calendar started one day later than Yahushua’s Solar Calendar. Yahushua’s 11th day was the weekly Sabbath and the Pharisees 10th day was this same weekly Sabbath. Yahushua rode into Jerusalem on His 10th day which was the 6th day of the week.
From the above the next weekly Sabbath in the first month is the 11th day.
We are told in the Dead Sea Scrolls that the Passover must be on the 3rd Day of the week. From Yahushua’s 11th weekly Sabbath, this puts the Passover, the 14th Day, on the 3rd day of the week. and then the next day the 15th Yahusha was crucified by the Pharisees on their 14th day. Remember the Pharisees are one day behind, as they are keeping a Lunar calendar. Three nights and three days in the grave takes us to the 18th for the weekly Sabbath. Yahusha said He is Master of the Sabbath and He rose on the Sabbath day.
We now have the first weekly Sabbath as the 4th, then the 11th , then the 18th.
Going back to those who have the first weekly Sabbath as the 7th, this means that Yahusuha’s Passover will be on the next weekly Sabbath, when the Passover must be on the 3rd day of the week.
In Leviticus 23 we have YAHUAH first telling us to remember His weekly Sabbath days, then He tells us about His Moedim, His festivals. YAHUAH’s festivals are separate from His weekly Sabbaths and the festivals must not begin on a weekly Sabbath.
Taking Yahushua’s solar Calendar for the first three weeks this is true, no festival is on a weekly Sabbath.
Numbers chapter 10—“On the twentieth day of the Second Month, the cloud lifted and they set out at YAHUAH’s command. The Ark of the Covenant went before them those three days to find a place of rest”.—-The three days the Ark went before them, were the 20th ,21st and 22nd, then the 23rd is a weekly Sabbath.
In Yahushua’s Calendar for the 1st month, the weekly Sabbaths are the 4th, the 11th, the 18th, and the 25th. Then in the Second Month, the weekly Sabbaths are the 2nd, the 9th, the 16th, the 23rd and the 30th. The 23rd weekly Sabbath corresponding to Numbers chapter 20. In the Third Month the weekly Sabbaths are the 7th, the 14th, the 21st, and the 28th.
These three months rotate for each quarter of the year.
The First and Second Temples were destroyed on a weekly Sabbath the 9th of Av. Is the 9th of Av a weekly Sabbath, in Yahusha’s Solar Calendar? Yes it is, the 9th of the fifth month is a weekly Sabbath.
Conclusion—From the above, Yahushua’s calendar was and is a Solar calendar, as it is confirmed by the references above.
The Enoch Calendar which has its first weekly Sabbath on the 7th of the 1st month, is incorrect.
The Messianic/Hebrew Roots Lunar–Solar calendar is incorrect, as the Gregorian Saturday never fits in year after year with YAHUAH’s Moedim and the lunar cycle is a nineteen yearly cycle, which requires a 13th month, to bring the Lunar calendar back to Spring..
The Lunar Sabbath calendar called The Worlds Last Chance is also incorrect as the weekly Sabbaths of the 8th, 15th, 22nd and 28th for every month are never correct subject to the references above.
The Dead Sea Scrolls fulls in the blanks and tells us the calendar that Yahushua kept, it was a Solar calendar, which began on the 4th day of the Creation Week..
These are times of restoration, YAHUAH is restoring His Truth of His Calendar to us, because of the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
