Concerning Sighting the New Moon
From where should the new moon be sighted? Can the lookout party be posted anywhere on earth? Or is Jerusalem the only authorized lookout point?
In ancient Israel new moon sightings were made from Jerusalem, a city about 2500 feet above sea level.
In short: months began when the new moon was first sighted from Jerusalem. As soon as the new born crescent was sighted from the capital the news was sent to the rest of the country. Such was the practice in ancient days. 'But,' you may well ask 'what of today?' As you can imagine, first sightings of the new moon vary from place to place. The moon may be seen at one place, only to be missed at another. Atmospheric pressure, temperature and humidity along the light path, altitude, latitude, longitude, cloud, fog and dust etc. can all affect a first sighting of the new moon. Even a distance of a few hundred miles in any direction could make the difference between seeing the new moon and not seeing it. On top of this is the fact that most city dwellers are not able to get away from the glare of the city lights each month to 'look out' for the new moon.
Some festival-keeping groups believe that: "A month should begin at whatever moment the new crescent is first sighted, regardless of location."
We do not agree with this stand, simply because first sightings of the new moon can occur a whole day apart in different parts of the world. Believers assembling at a central point could therefore find themselves in dispute as one party could justifiably claim to have seen the new moon on a certain day and another party deny having seen it. For example a Californian believer could, in certain months, see the new moon a whole day before or after his Jerusalem counterpart. So when he arrives in Israel for the Passover, when will he keep that service? Will he go by his Californian sighting, or will he fall into line with the believers in Jerusalem? The answer is obvious, and it has the backing of history: he will follow the Jerusalem lead.
The beginnings of months should be decided on the evidence of a first sighting from the standpoint of Jerusalem, because that is the Almighty's spiritual capital of the world and the main assembly point for festival-keeping believers.Such was the practice of ancient Israel. All new moons were announced from the main assembly point of Jerusalem. To be sure the folks from Nazareth, Dan, Beersheba and further afield were equally able to look out for the new moon, and they probably did; but even if they had seen the new moon locally, a first sighting from Jerusalem always took precedence over local first sightings. Also when Messiah walked the Earth the beginnings of months were proclaimed on the evidence of a first sighting from Jerusalem; regardless of whether or not pilgrims had seen the new moon in Asia, Persia, Ethiopia, Mesopotamia or Rome. Pilgrims from those distant lands (Acts 2: 9-11) all subordinated their local observations to first sightings from Jerusalem. And that is exactly what will happen in the millennium and on the new Earth. The beginnings of months will be proclaimed from Jerusalem and all the world will obey.
The Events of the Week of 2/10/2013, etc.
The week of 2/10/2013 was a symbolic mini-tribulation period.
Here's a list of the events occurring in that week that were of global interest:
02/10/2013 - The Carnival cruise ship Triumph lost electrical power. The ship became a microcosm of some of the human suffering that's coming to the entire earth during the great tribulation period ahead.
The weather was hot in the Caribbean Sea. The toilets were overflowing and unusable.
Because of a lack of refrigeration, passengers were eating onion sandwiches for days on end.
It was noted at the time that if the "i" and the "h" were removed from the name "Triumph", the result is "Trump", mindful of the trumpet judgments mentioned in the book of Revelation, etc.
02/11/2013 - North Korea exploded an atomic bomb.
02/11/2013 - Pope Benedict, the 265th Pope, announced his resignation, ushering in the election of the 266th pope.
The measure of a fish in ancient Greek mathematics was 153 units x 265 units. The vesica pisces "fish symbol" became a symbol of Christianity. Peter and the catch of 153 fish are mentioned at the end of John chapter 21. Pope Francis, a militant Jesuit and communist, being the 266th Pope, is the first Pope to be "outside the symbolic fish" of Christianity.
The account of Jonah being cast from the mouth of a great fish would identify Pope Francis as a prophet of sorts. Think about it.
02/14/2013 after sundown - The Carnival cruise ship Triumph arrived under tow in Mobile, Alabama. It was the end of a mini tribulation period for the 4,229 passengers and crew.
02/15/2013 - A rare 10' meteor exploded over Siberia injuring about 1,000 people. (The arrival of the Messiah at the end of the age is described symbolically in Daniel chapter 2 as a rock coming from heaven and destroying and replacing the current systems of world government)
02/15/2013 - A rare asteroid event having the potential to destroy all of southern California from north of Los Angeles to San Diego passed very near the earth on the same day as the rare meteor event mentioned above. Asteroid 2012 DA14 passed just 17,200 miles above the earth over Indonesia at its closest approach. http://earthsky.org/space/asteroid-2012-da14-will-pass-very-close-to-earth-in-2013
Linking 2/11/2013 to the Day of Trumpets in Two Separate Years
The date 2/11/2013 is linked to the Day of Trumpets in both 2019 and 2020 via two separate important events in modern Israel's history. We're told to watch for events that are related to YaHuWaH Elohim's appointed days, such as the Day of Trumpets.
According to the astronomy program, if the sky is clear in Israel on the dates listed below for the Day of Trumpets, the new moon will be able to be observed after sunset for those who follow the Karaite method on 9/29/2019 and also 9/18/2020.
Below is a graphic depicting the relationship of Pope Benedict's resignation announcement on 2/11/2013 with the Day of Trumpets 2019 and the Israeli Six Days War.
The central date in the graphic is 6/5/2016, the 1st day of the 50th year from the beginning of the Six Days War in Israel, during which Israel captured the city of Jerusalem from Jordan.
Note in the graphic above how the date 2/11/2013 is related with 9/29/2019 when the Day of Trumpets begins at sunset.
The exact central time between the lunar eclipses of 12/10/2011 and 4/15/2014 is 10 minutes after midnight in Rome and 1:10 AM in Jerusalem on 2/11/2013.
June 5, 2016, is the 49th anniversary of the Six Days War, and also the 1st day of the 50th year from the Six Days War. June 5, 2016, is the central focus at 1211 days each from 2/11/2013 and also 9/29/2019.
Below is a graphic depicting the relationship of Pope Benedict's resignation announcement on 2/11/2013 with the Day of Trumpets 2020 and the partitioning of the Promised Land by the UN.
The central date in the graphic is 11/29/2016, the 1st day of the 70th year from the partitioning of the Promised Land by the United Nations on 11/29/1947.
Note in the graphic above how the date 2/11/2013 is related with 9/18/2020 and the Day of Trumpets beginning at sunset. November 29, 2016, is the 69th anniversary of the partitioning of the Promised Land by the United Nations Organization, and also the 1st day of the 70th year from the partitioning of the Promised Land by the United Nations.
The date November 29, 2016, is the central focus from 2/11/2013 and also from 9/18/2020 at 1388 days each.
Who is able to link two separate appointed days, the Day of Trumpets, back to a single important date in history via two separate major anniversary dates in the history of the modern State of Israel?
Our loving Creator, YaHuWaH Elohim!
The information above witnesses to His very existence and His mighty abilities to structure His creation and to work unseen in the affairs of human governments.
The relationships between the dates on the graphics above indicate the supernatural abilities of our Creator, YaHuWaH Elohim, to integrate astronomical events at the time of the creation of the heavens and the earth with future events involving peoples and governments on the earth.
The timelines above are a two fold witness that should attract our attention to current events, as Moses was attracted to a burning bush that wasn't consumed in the fire.
It may be that we will receive instruction from our heavenly Father if we turn aside from the everyday events of our lives to observe the strange occurrences around us in these latter days.
