YHVH's Sacred Year
A Basic Understanding Series
By D. J. Love, Minister, TSN, SBC
The Hebrew Calendar is based on The Observance
of the New Moons (Dark Moons).
The Names of the months were not given by YHVH, as G-d would never
have named a month for Tammuz (a
Pagan god). However, the Hebrew Calendar
was and is based on YHVH's Sacred Year.
the symbolism of Dark before Light is
continued from the weekly 24 hour day of Evening before Morning,
and is, also, carried over into the lunar months as New (dark) Moon
before Full (Light) Moon.
Exactly the same symbolic theme as our lives beginning in darkness (sin
and ignorance) and ending
in light (love and understanding).
1 Corinthians 13:12
For now we see in a mirror, darkly (Dimly),
but then face to face (Clearly,
as in light). Now I know
in part (Ignorance & Sin),
but then I will know fully (Understanding & Love),
even as I was also fully known.
Esther 3:7 (First
and Twelfth month's names)
In the First Month, which is the month Nisan or Abib,
in the twelfth year of king Ahasuerus, they cast Pur, that is, the
lot, before Haman from day to day, and from month to month, to the Twelfth month,
which is the month of Adar I (Adar II is a "Leap Month").
YHVH spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land
of Egypt, saying,
2 "This month shall be to you the "Beginning of Months." It
shall be the First month
of the year to you.
3 Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying, 'On the tenth day
of this month, they shall take to them every man a Lamb, according
to their fathers' houses, a Lamb for a household;
6 Your Lamb shall be without blemish, a Male a year old. You
shall take it from the sheep, or from the goats:.... AND
you shall keep it until the Fourteenth Day of the same (First) month;
and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall Kill
It at Evening (near
Already we can see the symbolism of the First month (Nisan
or Abib), and the Last month (Adar
I), and the symbolism with the LAMB of YHVH. .
. YHVH was already putting the "Plan
of Salvation" (Logos) into
action, as we can clearly see here. This supports the fact that the First (older) Testament
or Tanakh is relevant to the understanding of the Last (newer) Testament
4 These are the set feasts of YHVH, even Holy
which you shall proclaim in their appointed season.
5 In the First month, on the Fourteenth day of the month at
Sunset, is YHVH's Passover (just
minutes prior to the beginning of the fifteenth day at sunset).
6 On the Fifteenth day of the same month is the "Feast
Of Unleavened Bread" to YHVH: seven days
you shall eat unleavened bread.
7 On the first day (of
the seven) you shall have a Holy Convocation (Assembly):
you shall do no servile work.
number fifteen has the significance of denoting "Deliverance," and
on YHVH's Sacred Calendar is always involved with a Bright "Full
Esther 8:9 (The
name of the third month)
Then were the king's scribes called at that
time, in the Third month SIVAN, . . .
Nehemiah 6:15 (The
name of the sixth month)
So the wall was finished in the twenty-fifth
day of the month Elul, in fifty-two days. (ELUL
Is The Sixth Month)
Leviticus 23:24 (The
Seventh or Sabbath Month of Tishri)
24 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, In the Seventh (Sabbath) month,
on the First day of the month, shall be a Solemn Rest (Sabbath
Rest) to you, a memorial of blowing of trumpets,
a Holy Convocation (Assembly).
Hashanah Always marks the beginning of
The Seventh (Sacred) Sabbath
Month. Actually The Whole Month Is Not A Sabbath, but is more correctly
understood to be the "Month Of Sabbaths". "Rosh
HaShanah" begins on the first day of the month (always
with a dark new moon), and Rosh HaShanah
begins a ten day "Solemn" period that represents the opening
of the "Seventh Seal" of Revelation, which begins with "Yom
Teruah" (The First
Six Trumpets and two "Woes"),
and ends with "Yom Kippur" (The
Seventh or "Last Trumpet" and final "Woe").
The New Moon Months of The
Sacred Calendar are as follows: Please
take note that most of the names below were due to Babylonian influence,
and were not given by YHVH or His true prophets or priests; and are,
thus, only given as reference. (See YHVH's

Month of The Sabbaths
Also on the tenth day of this Seventh month there shall be a "Day
of Atonement" (Yom
Kippur): It shall be a Holy Convocation (Assembly) unto
you; and ye shall Afflict Your Souls, and offer an offering
made by fire unto the L_rd. And ye shall do no work in that
same day: for it is a Day of Atonement, to make an Atonement
for you before the L_rd your G-d. It shall be unto you (an
annual) Sabbath of rest, and
ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at Evening, from Evening unto Evening,
shall ye celebrate your Sabbath.
"Yom Kippur" or "Atonement" quickly
follows "Yom Teruah" or "Trumpets." (Leviticus
23:24). Rosh HaShanah signified the "Beginning" of
the Sabbath Month in the First (older)Testament (The
Tanakh), the opening of the "Seventh Seal," and The
First Resurrection of the dead in Messiah. It
signifies the future point in time when Messiah himself will sound (The
Seventh Trumpet) "The Last Trump" mentioned
in Matthew 24:29-31, and 1 Corinthians
Since the "Rosh HaShanah" or "Trumpets" (not
a true feast), "Day of Atonement","Feast
of Tabernacles", and "The Last Great Day" quickly
follow one another and occur in the same 7th month, there
is a significant physical to Spiritual Truth theme taking place.
This unique and prophetic physical to "Spiritual (Time) Parallel" established
during Tishri (Seventh Month) indicates
a future "Chain of Events" that will follow in succession,
and under the Leadership of YHVH, Messiah, and the Chosen Few (of
the First Resurrection).
This Seventh or Sabbath Month chain of events is one of YHVH's greatest
clue to Sabbath Keepers for unraveling the mysteries of The Book of Revelation
and "The Plan of Salvation" (Logos).
(The "Feast Of Tabernacles" or "Feast
of Booths" or "Sukkot")
Speak unto the children of Israel (Chosen/Elect/True
Believers/First Fruits), saying, The fifteenth (deliverance) day of
this Seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) for Seven days
unto the L_rd YHVH.
On the First Day shall be a Holy Convocation: Ye shall
do no servile work therein. On the Eighth Day (Last
Great Day) shall be a Holy Convocation unto
Eighth Day Is not part Of The Feast Of Tabernacles. It Is Known As
The "Last Great Day", And Symbolizes The One Hundred Year
Period that immediately follows the Sabbath Millennium, and which
culminates in the "Great White Throne Judgement"; which
is a solemn assembly, as The Great White Throne Judgement would be
a solemn assembly.
are the Feasts of the YHVH, which ye shall proclaim to be Holy Convocations (A
to offer an offering made by fire unto YHVH, a burnt offering, a meat
offering, a sacrifice, and drink offerings, everything upon His day:
. . . :On the first day shall be a Sabbath, and on the eighth day shall
be a Sabbath. And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly
trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows
of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before YHVH your Elohym seven days
in booths. . . con't.
comes from the Hebrew word "Cukkah" or "Sukkah" which
means a "Hut" Or "Temporary Dwelling"
con't. . . And
ye shall keep it a Feast unto YHVH for seven days in the year (annual
event). It shall be A
STATUTE "FOREVER" in
your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh sacred month (Tishri). .

Israelites/Jews kept it because they were commanded to do so, but
True Believers keep all annual and weekly Sabbaths, because our
hearts compel us to do so. It is because we love YHVH, and
share a marriage covenant with YHVH in the name of The Messiah;
AND in so doing (Love, Honor
and Obey) we will remember
and teach our children to remember the "True
Plan Of Salvation" (Logos).
When people Stop Following YHVH's Holy Days, and they start observing
Christopagan or Satan's hol-i-days..
ie Xmas, Easter (Ishtar),
Haloween, etc. Then Mankind's Children will No longer Remember, Teach
Or Understand the "True
Plan Of Salvation",
and they will cease to worship YHVH completely.
con't....... That YOUR Children's
Children may know that I (YHVH) made
the children of Israel to dwell in sukkahs, when I brought them out of
the land of Egypt (Sin):
I am YHVH your Elohym.
