Forgotten Laws of Yahuah
New Moon Disclaimer: anything regarding new moons should be read as NEW MONTHS because that is what they are. "New moons" implies that we go by the lunar calendar, which I did for 10 years; however, after the Creator intervened I now understand the 364 day solar calendar to be of Yah as prescribed in the book of Enoch. Using the Lunar Calendar is forbidden in the book of Jubiless, it is implied in Enoch, and the Essene scrolls found in the Qumran caves at the dead sea confirm the use of the solar calendar not a lunar calendar. The going out and coming in of the moon is 10 days off per solar year, Jubilees prophesied that they would go astray in the last days using the moon and throwing off the order of the Appointed Times of Yah. Jubilees 6:36-38 “For there will be those who will assuredly make observations of the moon- now it disturbeth the seasons and cometh 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 jubilees. For this reason I command and testify to thee that thou mayest testify to them; for after thy death thy children will disturb them, so that they will not make the year 364 days only, and for this reason they will go wrong as to the new months and seasons and sabbaths and festivals…”
In Hebrew the word for moon is 3394 yareach. In Hebrew the word for month is 2320 chodesh. No where in Scripture does it ever say "New Moon", it only says "New Month"! So the witness that scripture gives is that we have new months, there is no such thing as a new moon in Scripture. Colossians 2:16 uses new moon, but if you research it you will see it’s 3561 a combination of 3501(new) and 3376(month). I Samuel 20:5,18,24; II Kings 4:23; Psalm 81:3; Isaiah 66:23; Ezekiel 46:1,6; Amos 8:5. All these verses use new moon; however if you look up the word it’s not yareach (moon); it’s actually chodesh (month).
Welcome to the Forgotton Laws of Yahuah! Here we will cover the Laws that the christian church doesn't keep, but we do keep them! We keep them because Yahuah changes not, and there is no biblical evidence that the law is done away with. There is no distinction between Jew and Gentile (former gentile). There is one law for everyone - you either obey or disobey. There is not one set of laws for the grafted in former gentile, and one set of laws for the native born Israelite- we are one- and there is one Torah that applies to both of us! There are simply verses that are misinterpreted for lawlessness. Here we will discover laws that apply to us all such as: Sabbath, New Moon, Annual Feasts of Yahuah, Clean and Unclean Animals, Tassels. Our goal is to make, keep, and teach a distinction between the Kodesh (set apart) and the Profane; and between the clean and unclean. For more thorough teachings on the Appointed Times please go to The Feasts of Yahuah.
Exodus 12:49 One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.
Numbers 9:14 And if a stranger shall sojourn among you, and will keep the passover unto Yahuah; according to the ordinance of the passover, and according to the manner thereof, so shall he do: ye shall have one ordinance, both for the stranger, and for him that was born in the land.
Numbers 15:14,15,16 And if a stranger sojourn with you, or whosoever be among you in your generations, and will offer an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto Yahuah; as ye do, so he shall do. One ordinance shall be both for you of the congregation, and also for the stranger that sojourneth with you, an ordinance for ever in your generations: as ye are, so shall the stranger be before the Yahuah. One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you.
2 Timothy 3:16,17 All scripture is given by inspiration of Yahuah, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of Yahuah may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
All Scripture refers to the Tanak (T=Torah; N= Nevium (prophets); K= Ketuvim (writings like Psalms)). The Torah is given by Yah and profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction and instruction on how to conduct yourself!
Ezekiel 22:26 Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine kodesh things: they have put no difference between the kodesh and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.
Ezekiel 44:23 And they shall teach my people the difference between the kodesh and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.
Isaiah 56:3,6-8 Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to Yahuah, speak, saying, Yahuah hath utterly separated me from his people:...Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to Yahuah, to serve him, and to love the name of Yahuah, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from profaning it, and taketh hold of my covenant; Even them will I bring to my kodesh mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people. Yahuah which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.
Numbers 15:38-41 Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue: And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring: That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be set apart unto your Alahim. I am Yahuah your Alahim, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your Alahim: I am Yahuah your Alahim.
The word fringe in Hebrew is Tzit,Tzit. H6734 צִיצִת tsı̂ytsith; tsee-tseeth' Feminine of H6731; a floral or wing like projection, that is, a fore lock of hair, a tassel: - fringe, lock.
Deuteronomy 22:12 Thou shalt make thee fringes upon the four quarters of thy vesture, wherewith thou coverest thyself.
Quite simply we are required by Yahuah to wear tassels or Tzit Tzit. They are to serve as reminders to keep the commandments of Yah, when you look upon them. They also can serve as a level of accountability, you certainly wouldn't want to be caught sinning while wearing tzit tzit- that would be a horrible testimony to others. They also make you peculiar, as most people don't keep this commandment. They can give you opportunity to witness to others when they question you as to what they are!
The rabbis like to commercialize tassles by selling them and declaring man made laws that if you don't use tehellit (tehellit blue comes from a sea creature; either a snail,squid, or mollusk) then it doesn't count. Therefore most tzit tzit made and wore by rabbis and orthodox Jews are white only, since tehellit is hard to come by (I guess). But the Scripture doesn't specify the color of blue having to come from this sea creature. The rabbis also declare that if they are not made a certain way then they don't count either, but the Scripture doesn't specify how to make them! I make my own tzit tzit and use whatever blue strings that are available at the store! The command is to wear tassles with a thread or line of blue, upon the four corners of your garment! The commandment doesn't say how often you are to wear them, but seems to imply whenever you wear clothes! Some argue that they have to be visible for others to see them, and some argue that they only have to be visible to you. The main thing is that you wear them - how is up to you!
Food You Eat! Clean and Unclean Animals!
Some people think Yahuah doesn't care about what we eat! I bet if we asked Adam and Eve if the Father cared about what they ate they would declare don't eat it if he said not too! Adam and Eve ate what they weren't supposed too eat, and it cost them the Garden of Eden and the good life! It also cost a lamb it's life, as Yah made garments for them as well. The fact of the matter is that Yah does care about what we eat. This is why He gives us detailed instructions in Leviticus 11.
Lev 11:45-47 For I am the LORD that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your Alahim: ye shall therefore be Kodesh, for I am Kodesh. This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moveth in the waters, and of every creature that creepeth upon the earth: To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten.
The Sabbath is a forgotten law of Yahuah! It's part of the ten commandments, but gets glossed over by the church. The church takes a couple of verses in the New Testament and stretches them very far to say that the Sabbath was changed from Saturday to Sunday, but nowhere in the Scripture does Yahuah say that He changed the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday! The Sabbath is on the 7th day, which I think is Saturday. Even if you look at your Gregorian calendar, it has Saturday as the 7th day of the week. Since the Sabbath has been historically proven to be unbroken since Yahushas day, and Yahusha saw no need to correct it; then neither do I. Funny that the church is so big on tithing, which isn't part of the 10 commandments, yet they shrug off the Sabbath which is part of the 10 commandments! Seems to me like they are picking and choosing what to keep and not keep.
Deuteronomy 12:32 What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.
Exodus 20:8-11 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it Kodesh. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of Yahuah thy Alahim: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days Yahuah made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore Yahuah blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
New Moon/Rosh Chodesh
I will never forget my first new moon service! I had no idea what was going on! When we went up on the roof to sight the moon, I thought they were worshipping the moon! I couldn't get out of there fast enough! I assure you that we do not worship the moon! Sighting the moon is something that Yahuah commands us to do. The Father sets up His calendar that we are to follow by the moon! I also thought a new moon was a full moon! It is not! A new moon is when the first visible sliver of the moon is visible after it disapears for a couple of days! You will have about 30 minutes to sight it before it sets in the evening. The best time to sight the moon is right after the sun sets, it will be visible for about 30 minutes if the sky is clear enough to permit it! You can look for it in the same direction that the sun is setting! The moon cycle sets up the calendar to keep the Feasts of Yahuah. Without knowing what month (moon) we are in on Yah's calendar, it will be impossible to keep the Feasts at their appointed time! Also when you see month in the bible it is talking about the moon, you could read it as moon rather than month.
Feasts of Yahuah
Technically the Sabbath is a Feast of Yahuah. I also think New Moon is a Feast of Yahuah. Anyway, the Feasts of Yahuah are without a doubt - Forgotton Laws of Yah! I think the Father is moving across the world right now, causing those who are sincere in their relationship with Him yet don't keep His Feasts, to begin to keep His Feasts. It is exciting to see more and more people begin to keep His Feasts! He calls them commandments forever! I think as we begin to move back to keeping Yahuahs Laws that we are fulfilling the word given by Yahuah in Malachi 3:6 "He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the land with a curse." Jeremiah 6:16 "Thus says Yahuah, stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is, and walk in it, and you shall find rest for your souls."
