"Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; and he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began." Acts 3:19-21 King James Version
"And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand." Daniel 12:9, 10 King James Version
John in Revelation 3:5, says, "He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life,...."
I'm wondering how do you understand the Day of Atonement, "It shall be a Sabbath unto you." It is on the tenth day of the 7th month. Your listing of lunar Sabbaths shows the 8th, 15th, 22nd, and the 29th.
RESPONSE; Shalom Brother Kwolfe, I believe the Day of Atonement is also a Sabbath/intermission but it is not a weekly Sabbath that comes after six workdays per Leviticus 23 and the case law example in Genesis 1, and I was listing the weekly Sabbaths that comes on the 8th, 15th, 22nd, and the 29th, new Moon worship days are not included when counting out the weeks.
The first day of the seventh month is a lunar Sabbath, and the 15th and the 22nd of this same month. The Day of Atonement is the 10th day of the same month. These all are mentioned as lunar Sabbaths. In the original text the word used for the "Sabbath" for the Day of Atonement is the same word used for the seventh-day Sabbath. How can you explain this?
RESPONSE; not sure if I am following you but I believe that All His worship holy convocations are lunar based/intermissions.
I do not find evidence that the 8th day and the 29th day of the seventh month are ever listed in the inspired Word as "Sabbaths".
RESPONSE; we know this by deductive reasoning, same as we know that the 22nd and 29th in the first month are lunar Sabbaths. I have a very short article on what is a scriptural seventh day at http://lunarsabbath.info/_wsn/page20.html perhaps you could read it and better understand where Iâ€™m coming from and if Iâ€™m wrong you can help me.
â€œConcerning the first month, the 15th day is the first lunar Sabbath in the first month (Lev. 23:11). The 22nd is listed as a lunar Sabbath within the 50 day count of 7 Sabbaths to Pentecost; Pentecost being on the morrow after the 7th Sabbath, which would make NONE of these lunar Sabbaths harmonize or fall in sequence with the new moon of the 2nd or the 3rd month, as you say that they would, if I'm understanding you correctly. Just count them, yourself. You have exactly 50 days including the day of the Wave Sheaf Offering and including the Day of Pentecost. All these 7 Sabbaths that are listed within the 50 days are required to be calculated from the day of the Wave Sheaf Offering, which in turn is calculated from the new moon of the first month.
I would await your comments,
RESPONSE; I understand exactly what you are saying but I number 50 days AFTER the seventh Sabbath complete instead of 50 days after the wave sheaf. There is no scripture for Pentecost in the third month. There is not even a feast mentioned in the third month for a 3rd month Pentecost. The law that was written by the finger of YHWH and given to Moshe WAS NOT in the third month, and there is no scriptural wheat harvest in the third month or harvest of any kind for that matter. please go to http://lunarsabbath.info/_wsn/page4.html and correct me if Iâ€™m wrong.

Appreciate you responding.
In our effort to understand this vision that John saw of the pure woman, we must acknowledge a principle of natural law. As Paul wrote, "Doth not even nature itself teach you," 1 Cor. 11:14. The natural law is that the moon is only a reflector or a mirror. We need to always remember that the moon has no light of its own. There is no brilliance in the moon apart from the sun, absolutely none. Its light is only a reflection of the light of the sun. When you look at the moon, you actually see some of the brilliance of the sun reflected in the moon.
This bears some thought. She is clothed with the brilliance of the sun--that's a lot of brilliance. It is not reflected light that she is clothed with.
It is so wonderful that Messiah gave us these lessons in nature to teach us such deep spiritual truths. In each generation He gives us more light and understanding. How important that we follow on to know the whole truth. "The path of the just is as the shining light, which shineth more and more unto the perfect day."
Our prayer is that all of us, together, shall continue on that shining path.
Shalom and Blessings,
