New Moons  Click on moon for "Yahweh's Ancient Calender"

Gen. 1:14 "...Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, (Heb. banners) and for seasons," (Heb.moedim=appointed times) YHWH PLACED THE SUN AND MOON THERE IN THE HEAVENS SO WE COULD KNOW WHEN THE SEASONS BEGIN AND END, and more importantly, to KNOW WHEN TO CELEBRATE YAHWEH'S MOEDIM, HIS APPOINTED FEASTS. (Look on the Feast page to read about the Appointed Feasts of YHWH and their importance to us as Jews and as Gentiles, made a part of the Commonwealth of Israel.)


The Sun and Moon are FOR SIGNS AND SEASONS. The sun is also the sign to differentiate between the seasons. There are 4 main seasons, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. The Sun and Moon tell us when the seasons begin and end. THE SUN is a timeclock. It is the 'guardian' or sign for day and night. "...and there was evening and morning, one day..." When the sun goes down the day begins, and when it rises we go about our daily tasks until the day ends at sundown. Read Genesis (apply mouse-over to see verses) 1:5,8,13,19,23,31

In winter in the Northern Hemisphere, nights are long, days are short. When the sun reaches its maximum distance (north) from the equator, this day is known as the WINTER SOLSTICE, and usually occurs around the 22rd. December. After December the days gradually become longer, the nights shorter. Around Spring time there occurs a day when the length of day and night are EQUAL. This is known as the VERNAL or SPRING EQUINOX Vernal="happening/appearing in Spring." Equinox="the time when the sun crosses the equator making night equal in length to day. (usually about 21st. March - Roman Calender) The VERNAL EQUINOX is a moment, during a 24 hour day.

Two solstices occur annually, around June 21 and December 21. The seasons of the year are determined by reference to both the solstices and the equinoxes. During summer in the Northern Hemisphere, nights become shorter, days become longer. The time when one of the Earth's poles reaches its maximum tilt toward the Sun, it is known as the 'longest day' or, the SUMMER SOLSTICE. From this point again, days become shorter, nights longer. Around Autumn time there again occurs a day when the length of day and night are EQUAL. This is known as the AUTUMNAL EQUINOX (Roman calender around Sept. 23rd.)
Equinox="the time when the sun crosses the equator making night equal in length to day. The AUTUMNAL EQUINOX is a moment, during a 24 hr. day. (about 23rd. Sept, Roman Calender) Autumnal="withered/withering" Again there is a change, nights become longer and days shorter.

THE WINTER SOLSTICE is the longest night, the shortest day. When the sun reaches the furthest distance from the equator in the Northern Hemisphere. (Obviously the opposite for the Southern Hemisphere) and winter begins, about 21st. December Roman Calender. The cycle then begins again, ONE YEAR has passed. '...evening and morning the first, second, third day...'(etc.) The Seventh day is the Day of Rest and is BLESSED. The Sun therefore, is the sign for days, weeks and years, but what about the MONTHS?

The function of THE MOON. is to be a sign for the months. When the Moon is 'new' (Heb: "renewed") it is black. Approximately every 29 and a half days, the moon comes into exact conjunction between the earth and sun, and the three orbs are in a straight line with one another (though not necessarily on the same plane). In conjunction, the moon is totally dark, reflecting none of the sun's light. This happens for a few moments in time during a 24 hour cycle. As it moves westward, away from the conjunction, it again begins to reflect light, and we are able to see a right hand sliver of light on the moon depending on the observer's location and the earth's position at conjunction. Next, progressively, we see more until we see the WHOLE of it. Full Moon. After this, the light diminishes gradually down to a half moon, and to a sliver on the left side, then again, we see no light at all - another NEW MOON.

One MONTH has passed. This cycle takes approximately 29 and a half days. ABIB, THE TIME OF GREEN EARS, the first New Moon (black, cannot be seen) after the VERNAL EQUINOX is the beginning of the FIRST MONTH of the year, the new year. Rosh Hashanah, the 'beginning of months' (or 'the head of the year') This is the only month YHWH gave a name to, governed by the Sun and Moon, which are according to Genesis 1:14 - (apply mouse over to see the verse) Genesis 1:14 a sign for seasons "Sign" = moedim (in hebrew) = appointed times for days, weeks, months, "IN ORDER THAT WE MAY KNOW WHEN THE FEASTS OF YHWH ARE."
