It is official. The new moon has been sighted at 6:47 pm Jerusalem, Israel time. Rosh Hashanah declared! Well… maybe. The following is stated by Brother Mark Harris of http://whenisthenewmoon.com/

“Some of you may be keeping this New Moon as the 7th month based on the barley observation this year, and some may be keeping this as the 6th month based on the first New Moon sighted after the Spring began. May you all continue to be blessed as you walk in Obedience to the Creator, and search out the Truth in these matters!”

Time, time, time… sigh… of that day or hour no one knows…

Click on the link below for a brief explanation of keeping time on God’s calendar.

 

These people are located northeast of Jerusalem, Israel and they follow the ancient practice of Rosh Chodesh. Rosh Chodesh means “head of the month”. There are people who are trained witnesses to identify the new moon. When the moon goes dark, witnesses are looking for the tiny sliver to emerge. It is a tiny crescent that is noted briefly at sunset on the western horizon.

God operates on a lunar calendar. Jews have utilized the following procedure every month for thousands of years. At the end of a lunar cycle, the moon is dark and is not seen for 2-3 days. The new moon can be identified during this 2-3 day period …of that day or hour no one knows…

The month begins at the sighting of the new moon. Two witnesses have to confirm the sighting. Upon agreement, the two witnesses report to the high priest. When the new moon is confirmed, the trumpet (shofar/ram’s horn) is blown. Humanity’s time keeping system is different than God’s. It is easy to see how the concepts of time are different and not on the same page. God marks time from month to month on a lunar calendar. The issue is not a mathematical calculation. It is a legal matter of truthful verification as far as God is concerned.

Deuteronomy 19:15 A single witness shall not rise up against a man on account of any iniquity or any sin which he has committed; on the evidence of two or three witnesses a matter shall be confirmed.

Tishri 1 (Hebrew calendar) begins after sunset on Tuesday, September 11, 2018 (Gregorian calendar) and continues until sunset Wednesday, September 12. With the establishment of the new moon and month, the remainder of God’s Fall Appointments can be proclaimed and dated.

Secular Israel celebrates the new month of Tishri and calls it their new year, Rosh Hashanah. Israelis are celebrating the beginning of year 5779. Note, God calls Tishri the seventh month.

Numbers 29:1 ‘Now in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall also have a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work. It will be to you a day for blowing trumpets. See also Leviticus 23:23-25

God’s new year begins in the spring.

Exodus 12:1-2 Now the Lord said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, “This month shall be the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year to you…”

About Paul Lehr

Paul Lehr is a Speech Pathologist and home health provider. The majority of his work focuses on swallowing disorders in neurologically impaired patients. He has been a business owner for the past 20+ years. Paul earned his BS in Speech Pathology and Audiology from Oklahoma State University. His MA was completed in Speech Pathology at Oklahoma State University. When Paul’s son was born prematurely in 2003, there was lots of support from family and friends. Keeping up with phone calls was too much. So he provided e-mails with updates on health and well-being. In time, his son was healthy and came home. The e-mails stopped but Paul was encouraged to keep writing. Three years later, Paul was asked to assist in writing a Sunday school curriculum. The lessons were well received by the local body and on the church website. Again, he was encouraged to keep writing. Next, Paul taught a Sunday School class for junior high and high school students. He would share notes with others from the class he was teaching. In 2010, a young man at a local church encouraged Paul to start a blog. The website focuses on topical studies such as creation, God’s Appointed Holidays and Feasts, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, end times prophecy, ancient Hebrew cultural customs, the Prophet Isaiah, and various topical studies. Three years later, Paul’s 10 year old son told me, “Dad, you need to do updates on how the news is tied to the Bible.” The “Trend Update” was born. In the spring of 2016, a friend and fellow Boy Scout father encouraged Paul to start a YouTube channel. His friend thought it was a natural fit considering the content and subscribers from the website. God’s prophetic words have reached millions in over 190 countries. Isaiah 55:11 So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; it will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. That same Boy Scout father would later introduce Paul to the movies of Trey Smith and the God in a Nutshell Project… Guest speak and presenter duties have focused on the topics of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in God’s Appointed Spring Feasts, Mystery Babylon, the antichrist, Ezekiel 38-39, and current events related to Bible prophecy. At this time, Paul would like to encourage each individual to learn about who God is. Because one way or another, we are all eternal. The issue is our destiny.
