Question 9


How may a religious organization check to see if the pre-printed calendar it uses is correct?

 

Answer


The organization should post a few believers on a high point at Jerusalem to look out for the new moon each month. A sighting of the new moon would confirm the pre-printed dates given by us for the first day of each month.

We now invite any believer or group of believers in Jerusalem to check out the calendar we publish against first sightings of the new moon with the naked eye. Please write to or email us if you find that the starting date of the festival months of Aviv or Ethanim as shown at Appendix A are incorrect.


The alternative to publishing a calendar in advance, is to post a lookout group at Jerusalem who would announce to the world - month by month - when the new moon is seen. This is still the best method of ensuring the correct starting dates of months. But we do not know of any group which does this on a monthly basis. To our knowledge they all publish their calendars and festival dates many months in advance; so they must all be using calculations of some sort.


Note: Many believers become polarized about the matter of keeping the correct Feast days. It is, of course, very important: and that is why we make such an effort to get it right. But let no one forget that the Great Feasts (the realities to which the current feasts merely point) will be miraculously highlighted by signs in the sun, moon and stars! We will not then be dependent upon computer printout, or the knowledge and skill of leaders feverishly arguing among themselves as to who is correct. In the near future the sun and moon will clearly mark out the correct feasts, sacred seasons or sabbatical year just as they did when the Savior hung on the cross. On that occasion the sun went out for three hours. That was no eclipse by any means; for an eclipse only lasts a few minutes. When the sun went out on that memorable day, even the Roman soldiers were staggered into saying "Truly this is the Son of YaHuWaH!" It will be the same in the near future; the promised signs in the sun, moon and stars will mark out the sacred times for all to see.


Having said that, it still behooves true believers to attend the sacred Feasts; because YaHuWaH the Almighty Elohim of Israel may well, as on that memorable Feast of Harvest (Pentecost) long ago, have some extra ordinary gifts to bestow on His obedient people;
