Genesis 1:4 YHWH said “Let there be lights in the Heavens. Let them separate the day from the night. Let them serve as signs to mark off the seasons and the days and the years. Let them serve as lights in the Heavens to give light o the earth.”

These lights, ma’owr in Hebrew, correspond to the sun, the moon, and the stars (constellations). The question is how are they used? An in-depth examination of the above underlined words will help make things clear. Signs indicate a signal or beacon, from Strong’s Concordance reference book, #H226 and H225. From Strongs #H4150moed, or seasons, indicate a returning point or a gathering point, from H3259, an appointment or fixed time. Days from #H3117 is “yom”, from and a root word meaning to be hot (the warm hours of the day). Years, you will find in Strongs #H8141 and H8138 “shaneh”, a year, as a revolution of time.


1. Start and end days from sunset to sunset (Genesis 1:5)

2. Start weeks at day one and end on day seven, the Sabbath. (Leviticus 23:15-16)

3. Start months with the conjunction of the new moon. (Deuteronomy 16:1)

4. Start years in the month of the barley harvest when it is abib (ready to harvest). (Leviticus 23:4-14)

These rules require you observance of Yahuah’s creation, sighting a sunset, or when the moon goes completely dark and cannot be seen, and looking at the season when barley is harvested. Psalm 33:8 says, “Let all the earth fear (respect) Yahuah: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.” Is there a better way than to get outside and look at some of these awesome, timekeeping sights of creation? Yahusha our Messiah taught in Matthew 24:32 “from the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts out leaves, you know that summer is near.” And in Isaiah 66:22-23 “For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before Me, says Yahuah, so shall your seed and your name remain. And it shall come to pass, that from one NEW MOON to another, from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before Me, says Yahuah.” These scriptures point out the New Moon is the beginning of the month. In Hebrew moon and month are the same words. The New Moon comes at its appointed time every 29 ½ days, orbiting around the earth. And it is a statute for Yahuah’s children and a solemn feast or worship day. Isaiah says that we will be keeping the seventh day Sabbath and New Moon Sabbath in the new earth as well. This means it was not done away with. All other Feasts of Yahuah will be kept as well. It is a statute forever throughout your generations. (Leviticus 23) Please leave a comment or ask a question.
