Our Heavenly Father instituted His Divine Calendar, which bears His Holy Name.

THE BOOK OF JUBILEES
Chapter 6


those who will assuredly make observations of the moon -how (it) disturbs the
37 seasons and comes in from year to year ten days too soon. For this reason the years will come upon them
when they will disturb (the order), and make an abominable (day) the day of testimony, and an unclean day a
feast day, and they will confound all the days, the holy with the unclean, and the unclean day with the holy;
for they will go wrong as to the months and sabbaths and feasts and
38 jubilees. For this reason I command and testify to thee that thou mayst testify to them; for after thy death
thy children will disturb (them), so that they will not make the year three hundred and sixty-four days only,
and for this reason they will go wrong as to the new moons and seasons and sabbaths and festivals, and they
will eat all kinds of blood with all kinds of flesh.

Any calendar with four consecutive weeks of 7 days will have this organization when you put the 22nd day of the moon on the 7th day. Exodus 16 the 22nd was the first sabbath they ate leftover manna from the 6th day of this first week of manna. Note the moon day numbers in the verticle column down below the 7th day Sabbath. 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th, fixed days provable with sufficient evidence of Scripture references, for Sabbaths, and special occaisions if not called "Sabbath" in some references, but "understood" by the moon day number to be Sabbaths. Just as we should be familiar with the number 7 with the 7th day Sabbath. See Biblical Proof for the Lunar Sabbath a PDF file, right click, save target

Lev. 1:1

 

The first week "Yod" (represents The Father, The Great Source of All) is the growing "New Moon"
The second week "He" (represents The Mother-The Holy Spirit) still a growing "New Moon"
The third week "Vav" (represents The Son-Yahoshua our Messiah) a Full Beautiful Moon, A Full Reflection of The Father's Glory.
The fourth week "He" (represents The Daughter-The Human Family made in the Image of Elohim) and "He" The Holy Spirit is with "The Daughter", "He", through the declining to dark moon, The Time of Jacob's Trouble, Psalms 91:1
1 He who dwells in the secret place of Elyon's Shade, El Shaddai, shall pass the night (of Yacob's trouble).  By faith in His Name, and in His Description of The Character that "That Name" represents.

Yes you can prove The New Moon Day, a worship day before the four Lunar Shabats. the 1st-new moon, 8th-first Shabat, 15th-second Shabat, 22nd-third Shabat, 29th-fourth Shabat. The correct understanding of Leviticus 23 also puts the first and last day of the feasts on Shabats, the 15th and 22nd, along with other texts. Yes Our Creator "fixed" each Shabat on a certain day of the moon, He specifically says so in Leviticus 23:39. This pattern is found throughout scripture in spite of Daniel 7:25 Lucifer's attempt to change the calendar.
Again Leviticus 23:39 says the Shabat is on the 15th and 22nd day of the moon. "Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto Yahovah seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath."  So 15 + 7 = 22, the 15th day plus 7 = the 8 days of the Feast of Tabernacles.

These sabbaths in the feasts are in reality the weekly 7th day sabbaths, except only the day of atonement, and trumpets.
Leviticus 19:3 Ye shall fear every man his mother and his father, and keep My sabbaths: I am Yahovah your Elohim.
In some instances the word "sabbath" is used for a special day of rest, e.g. Lev. 23:24, 25 the 7th New Moon Day, blowing of trumpets, "ye shall do no servile work".    
Servile work would be labor for hire.

At Solomon's temple dedication they celebrated this feast and went home on the 23rd day of the moon.

2nd Chronicles 7:9, 10
And in the eighth day they made a solemn assembly: for they kept the dedication of the altar seven days, and the feast seven days. And on the three and twentieth day of the seventh moon he sent the people away into their tents, glad and merry in heart for the goodness that Yahovah had shewed unto David, and to Solomon, and to Israel His people.

Leviticus 23:42 Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; ...   -  Logically the day the booth is built, would be the first day to live in it, away from home at the feast. So question, live in booths, The first 7 days of 8, or The Last 7 days of 8. The first 7 days of 8 would involve sabbath breaking, the last 7 days of 8, would keep both sabbaths. Emergencies are a different story altogether on Shabat observance, as well as relieving suffering.

40 And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of fruit trees, and branches of palm-trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before Yahovah your Elohim seven days.

With a rotating dual calendar, lunar and gregorian, the command to build a booth on the 16th day of the moon, could land on a saturday.

Note: in the above verse, Lev. 23:42, to be consistent, and to fit in the framework of all commands in Leviticus 23 and more texts the First must be the first day of the weekly cycle. The first day of the feast is the 7th day, and the 1st day to build a booth is the 1st day of the following week, the 16th day.

It is obvious that this command to "work" could not be the first day of the feast, which is a "shabat", but rather it is the first day of the week.


Exodus 12:18, 19
18 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even. (7 night portions of days, and 7 daylight portions of days) A day unit number consists of, surise begins the number of a new day, and the night portion following it still has the same number assignement, as illustrated throughout scripture.

19 Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses:     (for 7 daylight portions of 7 days, there was no leaven in the house, 15th-21st, the night portion of the 14th day, is not called a "day", only the "daylight" portion is called a "day") Day, or Yom, can be the daylight, or day-unit of time. 14th day, locates the 24 hour block, "night" tells when to begin "no leaven found in house", it is disposed of in the 14th daylight.

"chag" or
Mimouna

The "Chag", feast, or "Mimouna" is celebrated with leavened bread products. This helps to illustrate that the 7th day Sabbath is kept when the 7th day-light appears at sunrise. This means that the Shabat preparation time extends until Sunrise, as illustrated also with the command for manna, "bake what ye will bake today, and seeth what ye will seeth, for to morrow is Shabat" not "to night is Shabat" Ex. 16:23. So after the 21st at even, up until before sunrise, they had opportunity to obtain leaven-yeast, knead dough with yeast, let rise, and bake food products for the Shabat-Feast-Chag-#2282-Mimouna on the 22nd day of the moon. The Mimouna "Chag" has leavened food, after the week of unleavened bread, on the 22nd day of the moon. The Mimouna is commanded in Exodus 13:16 quoted just below, with the word "chag" translated as "Feast". This "Chag" (strong's #2282) is not the "Chagag" (strong's #2287) which is a dancing festival celebration. Just a sabbath feast with good eating.

Deuteronomy 16:8 Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread: and on the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to Yahovah thy Elohim: thou shalt do no work therein.
(this is referring the the weekly cycle of 7 days)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mimouna The Jews keep the 22nd, the 8th day from the 15th, a feast, after eating 7 days of "unleavened bread". Matzo isn't as tasty as leavened bread products.

The above shows us that there were 7 Days- The lighted portion of the 24 hour period, which often is reffered to as "Day"
The 14th at even began unleavened bread eating, but it was the dark portion only of the 14th day number.
The 21st at even ended leavened bread, just the Day-Light portion was unleavened bread of the 21st day 24 hour period.
A "Day" unit, in scripture begins at sunrise, and ends at the next sunrise.
Only 7 Day-Light "Days" was unleavened bread eaten, and only 7 nights was unleavened bread eaten.

Exodus 13:6
[Seven]-7651   [days]-3117    [you shall eat]-398   [unleavened bread]-4682,   [and on the day]-3117   [seventh]-7637   [a feast]-2282(solemn assembly-sacrifice)   [to Yahovah]-3068.

The above verse speaks of 7days as the length of the feast, The First day is the 7th day of the preceeding week, and the 2nd day of unleavened bread is the First day of the following week, which is why Deuteronomy 16:8 says to eat unleavened bread six days, and then to have a solemn assembly on the 7th day of that week, which is the 7th day Sabbath-Feast, as Deuteronomy 16:8 with Exodus 13:6 explains, and is the correct interpretation of Exodus 13:6 "and on the day seventh a feast" that is, the 22nd day.

There are no contradictions, just wrong conceptions of time and space distort our views, to misconceptualize Scripture Truths.

Elohim is a Elohim of order. Everything connected with heaven is
in perfect order; subjection and thorough discipline mark the
movements of the angelic host. Success can only attend order
and harmonious action
. Elohim requires order and system in His
work now no less than in the days of Israel. All who are working
for Him are to labor intelligently, not in a careless, haphazard
manner. He would have His Work done with faith and exactness,
that He may place the seal of His approval upon it.

OUT OF ZION THE PERFECTION OF BEAUTY ELOHIM HATH SHINED.-PSALM 50:2

Lamentations 2:15 ... ... the daughter of Jerusalem, saying, Is this the city that men call THE PERFECTION OF BEAUTY, The joy of the whole earth?

The Sabbaths in connection with the feasts of Yahovah.

The feast of unleavend bread is a feast of 7 days, The feast of tabernacles is a feast of dwelling in booths 7 days.

Both begin and end upon the 15th day and the 22nd days of the moon, the 2nd and 3rd Shabats of the moon.

Leviticus 23:39 -- Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh new moon(2320-chodesh), when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto Yahovah seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath.

Leviticus 23:39 tells us that a feast (chag) is also connected with the first and eight day (15th, 22nd) so the two shabats are connected with this feast-chag of 7 days.

I am seeking to understand these things, these are thoughts about the matter, please investigate all things for yourself.

Certain editing of Scriptures has taken place, in the distant past, in our present day bibles, to remove the lunar calendar weeks from Scripture.

These changes in Scripture have confused the Shabats in the feasts, making the Shabat less plain to see that they are connected to the lunar calendar.

But by Isaiah's prophecy, line upon line, line upon line, precept upon precept, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little, we can trace the calendar of Yahovah, halleluYah! Isaiah 28:10, 13

We can see by looking at all of the references, and texts, that He is not asking us to keep two "rest" days in a row, the 21st and 22nd, but only the 22nd as indicated by Deuteronomy 16:8.

Exodus 13:6
[Seven]-7651   [days]-3117    [you shall eat]-398   [unleavened bread]-4682,   [and on the day]-3117   [seventh]-7637   [a feast]-2282(solemn assembly-sacrifice)   [to Yahovah]-3068.

So eat matzo for 7 days in a row period. And "then" the next day after eating matzo, is the 7th weekday Shabat, the 8th day of the feast also a "chag" eating raised bread, prepared during the night before the 7th day Shabat, the 21st after dark. During the 21st which is the 6th day of the weekly cycle, but the last day of unleavened bread, other preparations for the Shabat Feast can be made that do not involve yeast or leaven, during the daylight hours. As the commands for "No Work" are the 7th day Shabat, and the day of Atonement, just these two appointments. The Feast of Weeks (7 sabbaths complete then count 50 days) and Trumpets the command is "No servile work" which is different than "No Work".

He reminds us in these two annual feasts, unleavened bread, and tabernacles, to do no work on the beginning and ending Shabats.

Above in Exodus 13:6, the seventh day is not the seventh day of unleaved bread, but the seventh day of the week,  the Seventh day Shabat-as illustrated by Deut. 16:8 Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread:(this is referring to the weekly cycle of 7 days and the last 6 days of unleavened bread, but the first six days of the week) and on the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to Yahovah thy Elohim: thou shalt do no work therein.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mimouna The Jews keep the 22nd, the 8th day, a feast, after eating "unleavened bread".

Today Israel still use numbers for the names of the days of the week, except the 7th day they call shabat.

Exodus 12:18, 19

18 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.

19 Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses:

Deut. 16:8 Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread:(this is referring to the weekly cycle of 7 days and the last 6 days of unleavened bread, but the first six days of the week) and on the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to Yahovah thy Elohim: thou shalt do no work therein.

The above tells us to eat unleavened bread six days, and the 7th day is excluded, otherwise the word would be "7" instead of "6", and is referring to the 7th day shabat. For the command said to eat it for 7 days straight in a row, not for only 6 days. This is proof that first and seventh days in Exodus  are the first day of the feast on Shabat, and the 7th day of the following week is Shabat & the end of the celebration period, but on that day leavened bread can be eaten, but being Shabat, no work is to be done.

It is speaking of the six work days of the lunar calendar week, which the 21st at even ends unleavened bread and which day is also the sixth day of the weekly lunar cycle, the same day in the wilderness that a double portion of manna fell.

Look at the calendar, beginning with the sixteenth, through the 21st is the six work days spoken in Deut. 16:8, that you eat unleavened bread during the feast, and after the end of the unleavened bread is the 7th day shabat, being the 22nd day. HalleluYah, this explains Leviticus 23.8 ... and the day seventh(the 7th day shabat), a holy gathering, any work of service, not you shall do.

Sometimes we are in confusion about which He is speaking of, not being familiar with language, and being there in person, so to know if He is speaking of the Seventh day of the feast or the Seventh day of the week, we must be familiar with His calendar and His Torah.

Also in Leviticus 23:3 the command to keep the 7th day sabbath uses the two same hebrew words holy - (qodesh-6944) convocation - (miqra-4744) for the 7th day sabbath, the 15th-first day Lev. 23:6, 7 (15th of moon-full, is always shabat) of unleavened bread and the 7th day (of the week, not the 7th of the 7 days where no leaven is in the house which ends on the 6th day of the week, the 21st at even)

If it is not after this fashion, then the erroneous way that feast keepers now keep it, if they are lunar sabbatarians, is they keep both the 21st day along with the regular 22nd day shabat, both as holy convocations, no work therein.

Also It says twice these are My feasts, first for the weekly shabats, and then again for the annual feasts. Where is the command for the new moon?   Perhaps Leviticus has been chopped up as the first line of the fourth command(Remember sabbath day, six days, seventh-sabbath. instead of 1. new moon, 2. six work days, 3. 7th day is shabat). Tabernacles begins and ends on the 15th and 22nd which are 7th days sabbaths, both.  Unleavened bread begins on the 14th at even, the night preceeding the 15th sabbath day, which is the 7th day of the week. It ends on the 21st at even, being the 6th day of the week, anciently when a double portion of manna fell.

2nd Chronicles 7:9, 10
And in the eighth day they made a solemn assembly: for they kept the dedication of the altar seven days, and the feast seven days. And on the three and twentieth day of the seventh month he sent the people away into their tents, glad and merry in heart for the goodness that Yahovah had shewed unto David, and to Solomon, and to Israel His people.

Deuteronomy 16:8

Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread:(this is referring the the weekly cycle of 7 days) and on the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to Yahovah thy Elohim: thou shalt do no work therein.

These six days are the 6 work days, of the normal week cycle, This must be because the first "day-daylight" of 7 days of unleavened bread begins on the 7th day sabbath, the (15th) and ends on the 6th "day-daylight" of the week following, the (21st).

The Feast of Tabernacles, the last day, the 22nd,  is a little different because only one bullock is offered.

1st day 13 bullocks, 2nd day 12 bullocks, 3rd day 11 bullocks, 4th day 10 bullocks, 5th day 9 bullocks, 6th day 8 bullocks, 7th day 7 bullocks, 8th day 1 bullock, see Numbers 29:12-36.

The Feast of Unleavened Bread, the last day, the 22nd, is a little different, because leavened bread may be eaten.

Don't confuse This Feast, misunderstanding it to define the boundary of a day. It is a special celebration of Israel's deliverance from Egypt, when the death angel, at midnight, "Passed Over" His obedient children, prefiguring "It was at midnight that Elohim chose to deliver His People" when the death decree goes into effect at the world's definition of the start of a new day with a new number.

Death decree by Yahovah brought about on Passover on the Egyptians.
Death decree brought about by the wicked on Yahovah's children on the Day of Atonement.

Early Writings of Ellen G. White Page - 286
Then commenced the jubilee, when the land should rest. I saw the pious slave rise in victory and triumph, and shake off the chains that bound him, while his wicked master was in confusion and knew not what to do; for the wicked could not understand the words of the voice of Elohim.

Maranatha - The Special Resurrection Page - 281
  And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. Dan. 12:2. It was at midnight that God chose to deliver His people. As the wicked were mocking around them, suddenly the sun appeared, shining in his strength, and the moon stood still. . . . Dark, heavy clouds came up and clashed against each other. But there was one clear place of settled glory, whence came the voice of God like many waters, shaking the heavens and  the earth. There was a mighty earthquake. The graves were opened, and those who had died in faith under the third angel's message, keeping the Sabbath, came forth from their dusty beds, glorified, to hear the covenant of peace that God was to make with those who had kept His law.

This shows that unleavened bread is consumed for 7 daylight periods, or 7 generic days, and also a total of 168 hours, 7x24. (14th at even until the 21st at even unleavened bread is consumed. The consumation of the feast period includes the next day the Shabat. It is not cut off, and the people go home on the 21st, or 22nd, It is The 7th day Shabat, the 22nd day of the moon, The Holy of Yahovah, the most important day of the Feasts, and as in Tabernacles quoted above in 2nd Chronicles 7:9, 10; the people went home on the 23rd day of the moon, traveling home on the first of the six work days.

As Deuteronomy 16:8 tells us, "the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to Yahovah thy Elohim: thou shalt do no work therein."
As Leviticus 23:3 ... an holy convocation, ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of Yahovah in all your dwellings.

1 John 5:3 - His commandments are not grievous, therefore He did not command two days in a row where no work is done. Except if it could ever happen, maybe not, that the last sabbath, the 29th, of the 6th moon, is next to the first day, (New Moon Day) of the 7th moon, perhaps it is always a two day new moon at that time? But the command is different "servile work" versus "any work" on the 7th New Moon.

The Scriptures have been chopped up by Rome to fix a new calendar.

The New Moon Laws have been largely excluded from the Torah by the same power.

The last great controversy over the sabbath is not about saturday or sunday, but by what calendar is the 7th day sabbath determined!

This controversy is between "the sinners in zion" Is. 33:14 and "the 144,000" the woman with the moon under her feet. Revelation 12:1

Isaiah 28:12
To whom He said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.

Spiritual Gifts Volume 1, p. 186
The truth alone was exalted to them. It was dearer and more precious than life, They had been hungering and thirsting for truth. I asked what had made this great change.  An angel answered, It is the latter rain; the refreshing from the presence of Yahovah; the loud cry of the third angel. Great power was with these chosen ones. Said the angel, look ye!
