When Does The Creation Day Begin?
Before I go any further about this topic, I must tell you. I'm no scholar, professional or a preacher like a pastor. I am just as simple man, a brother like everyone else who happened to learn about the truth. My intention here is to present my sharing, part of my testimony as how I have discovered the shocking truth about the creation time system differs from man made time system. This information document could benefit for those who read will gain a better understanding about the Appointed day. This document article mostly focuses on about the morning and evening hours. To point out why the beginning of the day is not at midnight or evening nor sunset but at dawn. Some others who deal with the scriptures book believe the day began at sunset. This is another fact, why the sunset is a mistake to believe it began the day.
SO, WHAT IS THE PROBLEM AND THE TRUTH?
The first thing we need to understand is about the translator. You will learned why the translator have in vain changed the way the ancient original like Hebrew text was written. What the translator did in verse 5 change in BERĔSHITH (GENESIS), chapter one; the word “AND” in between the statement evening and the morning was add. The word “WERE” is the wrong describable word for this verse. These two words had caused the misunderstanding. Discovered the best of the few word fitter for verse 5 are “to exist”, “to become”, “come to pass” or “follow”. The word follow seems the best describable fitter than the word “WERE”. Since it is more sensitive word for verse 5. After how I’ve look up in the book called Strong's Exhaustive Concordance.
Labor being done during the daylight, please look in 1st MELA.IM (1st KINGS) 18:40-46:
“And Ĕliyahu said to them, Seize the prophets of Ba‛al! Do not let one of them escape!” So they seized them and Ĕliyahu brought them down to the wadi Qishon and slaughtered them there. And Ĕliyahu said to Ahab, Go up, eat and drink, because of the sound of the noise of rain. Ahab went up to eat and to drink and Ĕliyahu went up to the top of Karmel and he bowed down on the ground and put his face between his knees, and said to his servant, Please go up and look closely toward the sea. So he went up and looked closely and said, Not a speck. And seven times he said, Go again. And it came to be the seventh time, that he said, I see a little cloud as small as a man’s hand is coming out of the sea!” And he said, Go up, say to Ahab, Hitch up and go down before the rain stops you.’ And in the meantime, it came to be that the heavens became black with clouds and wind and there was a heavy rain, while Ahab rode and went to Yizre‛ĕl. And the hand of YHUH was on Ĕliyahu. And he girded up his loins and ran ahead of Ahab to the entrance of Yizre‛ĕl”.
Think about the those above scripture verses, all the events outlined took place about the time of, and after, the sacrifice offered in the evening. Is it not obvious that these events had to have taken place before the sundown? How else would there have been enough light for Elijah to do all the things mentioned in the scripture, including climbed to the top of Mount Carmel??? His servant climbing the mount several times and abilities to look toward the sea??? None of this seems to happen after sunset, or in the dark hour? Since these scriptures give us a strong supporting point where we all need to clearly understand. As we use these verses in 1st Mel (1st Kings) chapter 18 as conclusive evidence to support us from the scriptures – that the word “evening” refers way before a time BEFORE SUNDOWN!
The daily sacrifice offering was always done from Morning and Evening. Noticed, it kept repeat as morning to evening, instead of evening to morning. Two daily sacrifices were required as part of the correct worshiping of YHUH: one in the morning and one in the evening. First DIḆRE haYAMIM (1st CHRONICLES) 16:40 said:
"...to offer burnt offerings to YHUH on the altar of burnt offering regularly morning and evening and to do according to all that is written in the Turah of YHUH which He commanded Yisraĕl;"
Scripture tells us that YHUH’s people are the spiritual house which is made up of lively stones. As lively stones forming YHUH’s children, we are to offer up spiritual sacrifices daily! Since we no longer required to offer physical burnt sacrifices, but spiritual sacrifices. Scripture also clearly states that these sacrifices must be acceptable to YHUH if they are to correctly doing to fulfill our spiritual obligation.
“By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to YHUH continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name” (Heb. 13:15).
However, Hebrews 13:5 more specific to the spiritual daily sacrifices requirement of YHUH’s people. While there are more scriptures that clarify this further:
“And when He took the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp and golden bowls filled with incense, which are the prayers of the set-apart ones” (Rev. 5:8).
“And another messenger came and stood at the altar, holding a golden censer and much incense was given to him, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the set-apart ones upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the set-apart ones, went up before YHUH from the hand of the messenger” (Rev. 8:3-4).
When YHUH was preparing His people to enter the Promised Land. Canaan, the YHUH gave specific commands to Moses concerning the rituals of worshiping. The requirements given to Moses to do twice-daily sacrifice. He commanded the daily sacrifice of "two lamb! ' year old. Offer one in the morning and the other at twilight." This set in place t pattern in the morning and evening sacrifice always. The morning and evening sacrifice was beginning to take on a devotional character.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter through the door into the sheepfold, but climbs up by another way, that one is a thief and a robber. But he who enters through the door...
...Yahusha therefore said to them again, Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door. Whoever enters through Me, he shall be saved, and shall go in and shall go out and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, and to slaughter, and to destroy. I have come that they might possess life, and that they might possess it beyond measure”. YOHANAN (JOHN) 10:1, 7-10
Those who came out of Babylon had heard and were attempted to keep YHUH’s weekly and yearly appointments for coming in His presence. Learned of his daily appointments for meeting with Him? All of us have heard this phrase “Give us this day our daily bread” without understanding its full meaning. In order to understand the daily appointed times for coming into YHUH’s presence, it is necessary to learn the old times of the offering up of the animal sacrifices, as Yahusha’s blood replaced that of the blood of the animals. It is, of course, instant death, if one attempts to enter the presence of YHUH without the covering of blood, as there is no remission of sins without the shedding of blood. Sin cannot enter the presence of YHUH.
tell us about the 14th day of the first month, is the Passover day. How the Ysraelites were told to kill the lamb in the “evening” (about 3pm) and at night before the morning on the same day is to eat the rest of the flesh of the lamb. In chapter one; verse 14, states this Passover meal was an ordinance to be kept forever. The meal was to be eaten on the Passover hour at twilight, after sunset.
The next thing I like to also share about WAYYIQRA (LEVITICUS) 23:32 as another false proof when a person used this scripture passage about the Sabbath day, to prove me wrong that we're to obverse this Sabbath time from evening to evening as the beginning of days.
‘It is a Sabbath of rest to you and you shall afflict your beings. On the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you observe your Sabbath.”
This is one of the mistaken when people literally don't understand much about Sabbatical thing. We have to really understand what the Sabbath is all about. Since this WAYYIQRA (LEVITICUS) 23:32 evening to evening does not literary talking about the times of the festival of the Sabbath but fasting time. The affliction time, which start on the 9th day at even, before we head to bed. The day before the Sabbatical Atonement Day began which is on the 10th day of the 7th month, we're to fasts (have no food and beverage in our stomach). Our temple body is to stay pure and ready for the restoring oneself to a state of wholeness and holiness before YHUH in the morning. To total devotion, commitment and surrender to Yahusha is seen in the fact that the fire was to be kept burning continuously according to SHEMOTH (EXODUS) 29:38-41 or WAYYIQRA (LEVITICUS) 6:8-12. It was to continue burning on the bronze altar throughout the night, till morning, twenty-four hours a day, even when traveling in the wilderness. It could not go out. The priests were to offer one-year-old lamb on the bronze altar in the morning and another at evening. This is like having two Sabbatical day, since it mentioned the 9th and 10th day of the 7th month.
This spoke of the fact that the people needed a constant reminder that someone was needed to take their place and that their sin merited death. There had to be the shedding of blood for sin. Every morning the priest was to add firewood, arrange the burnt offering on the fire and burn the fat of the peace offerings on it. This was considered one of the five key duties of the priesthood. The first lamb was offered with a tenth of an ephah of fine flour mixed with a quarter of an hin of oil from pressed olives, and a quarter of a hin of wine as a drink offering. Thus, the daily offerings contained the basic parts of the people’s daily diet: meat, flour, oil and wine. The second lamb, sacrificed at evening, was offered with the same grain and drink offerings as in the morning. After the morning sacrifice, the priest put on his white linen clothes, with linen undergarments and removed the ashes of the burnt offering that the fire had consumed on the bronze altar and placed them beside the altar. Then he took off his priestly white linen clothes and put on regular clothing and carried the ashes outside the camp to a place that was ceremonially clean.
Once again, I still believe dawn to dawn is the actual beginning of the day cycle. The next thing I am about to share here is more scriptures example. Let look in the book of YOḤANAN (JOHN) chapter one, where this scripture began to say “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with YHUH, and the Word was YHUH, etc...” Like how this WORD was from the beginning, appealingly to be Yahusha, our Master. The Savior who was there before the earth was created. Then in chapter 8:12, Yahusha proclaimed himself that he is the LIGHT of the WORLD and the reason I am pointing out this part of the scripture is to understand who is this light in BERĔSHITH (GENESIS) 1:2. Is to recognize this LIGHT in BERĔSHITH (GENESIS) 1:2 is him, Yahusha. To understand why this LIGHT is important to us, who is the light of the world and the beginning of it life. He is the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last as the Revelation 22:13 said. He is the dawn ray of the morning star, according to Rev 22:16:
"I, Yahusha, have sent My messenger to witness to you these matters in the assemblies. I am the Root and the Offspring of Dawid (David), the bright and Morning Star”.
In the book of the Revelation 21:23-25, the future city of the new kingdom on earth no need of the sun, nor of the moon to shine. It is because it the Lamb of YHUH, Yahusha who lightened the city.
“And the city had no need of the sun, nor of the moon, to shine in it, for the esteem of YHUH lightened it and the Lamb is its lamp. And the gentiles, of those who are saved, shall walk in it's light, and the sovereigns of the earth bring their esteem into it. And its gates shall not be shut at all by day, for night shall not be there”.
FYI, Two thing to understand, He is no SUN and noticed in Genesis how the SUN hadn't shine and/or rule the world until it appear in heaven; according in verses 14-19 of BERĔSHITH (GENESIS). Do you see that???? Secondly, our master who died for us is no longer called YAHUSHA. The Son of YAHUAH bears His Father's name. His name was YAHUsha. "YAHU" is short for YAHUAH, and "sha" means Salvation in Hebrew. YAHUsha, means "YAHUAH is Salvation." YAHUsha was the name He carried while he was here on earth. After His resurrection he has been given the name above all names, Again, He and His Father bear the same Name! The Savior, YAHUsha, said in Yahuchanon 5:43 (sign name and corrupted to John): Yahuchanon (sn- John) 5:43 "I have come in my Father's Name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive." Yahuchanon (sn- John) 10:25- YAHUsha answered them "I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father's Name, they bear witness of Me." He YAHUAH the Savior.
Here more scriptures which refer to state that the day begins at dawn before the morning sunrise. Let look in one example statement about the day before the Sabbath Day in the book of Shemoth (Exodus) 16:23.
This is what YHUH has said, Tomorrow is a rest, a Shabbat set-apart to YHUH. That which you bake, bake; and that which you cook, cook. And lay up for yourselves all that is left over, to keep it until morning・.
Why does this scripture say 'Tomorrow is the rest' (Sabbath) which happen until the morning? The next simple scriptures I want to share with you next is in MATTITHYAHU (Matthew) 28:1:
Now after the Sabbath, toward dawn on the first day of the week, Miryam (Mary) from Magdala and the other Miryam (Mary) came to see the tomb.
Clearly, this one state that dawn (Greek word “epiphosko”) is the beginning of the first day? Why not evening sunset or at midnight?
“And it came to be on the seventh day that they rose early, about the dawning of the day and went around the city seven times in this way. Only on that day they went around the city seven times” Yahusha (JOSHUA) 6:15.
Clearly, this one also state that the Sabbath begins in the dawning of the day? Again, why not evening, sunset or midnight? There is more scripture example similar to that above scripture example. The next thing is about the shutting of the gates. This one is another noteworthy example of the sunset reckoning in NEḤEMYAH (Nehemiah) 13:19, which reads:
“And it came to be, at the gates of Yerushalayim, as it began to be dark before the Sabbath, that I commanded the gates to be shut and commanded that they should not be opened until after the Sabbath. And I stationed some of my servants at the gates, so that no burdens would be brought in on the Sabbath day.”
There is an interesting scripture about the shutting of the gates, which happened on the Friday evening; does not require to pin in sunset reckoning, since they were routinely shut every night. The verse, however, contains a significant emphasis, namely, that Nehemiah commanded the doors to be shut "when it began to be dark." What this presumably means is that Nehemiah ordered the gates to be closed on Friday earlier than usual. The gates were generally closed when it was completely dark. This is evidenced by the story of the two spies who entered Jericho in the evening and who, according to Rahab’s response to the king’s guards, left "when the gate was to be closed, at dark" NEḤEMYAH (Nehemiah) 2:5.
Once again, the way I observe the starting time based on dawn to dawn. The creation time system, which teaches us the time of the sign of the season by using the sun, moon and stars which instructed me to know the appointed time. I have mentioned the SUN rule of the world in the book of BERĔSHITH (GENESIS) 1:14 to 18, YHUH said, “Let lights come to be in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night and let them be for signs and appointed times and for days and years, and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth.” And it came to be so. And YHUH made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night and the stars. And YHUH set them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night and to separate the light from the darkness. And YHUH saw that it was good.
Noticed where it said for signs and appointed times and for days and years is what we're to follow the time of the day and year? Stating that the greater light (SUN) to rule the day and the lesser light (MOON) to rule the night and the stars. We're to observe the creation time system which already been given to us since the beginning. This YHUH's instruction is way different from how the Roman-Gregorian time system instructed me. I've witnessed why we're in so much trouble with time managing in this world, because we the people on earth aren't following his instruction and the laws of the appointed time he already gave us and we have put away that by changing his time and laws. I believe we're not supposed to change YHUH's appointed times and laws according to DEḆARIM (Deuteronomy) 4:1-2:
“And now, O Yisra’ĕl, listen to the laws and the right-rulings which I am teaching you to do, so that you live and shalt go in and possess the land which YHUH of your fathers is giving you. “Do not add to the Word which I command you and do not take away from it, so as to guard the commands of your YHUH which I am commanding you”
The book of TEHILLIM (Psalm) 89:34 said:
“I shall not profane My covenant, Neither would I change what has gone out from My lips.”
“Even Yahusha during the time he was on earth said: “Do not think that I came to destroy (or change) the Turah or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy (or change) but to complete. For truly, I say to you, til the heavens and the earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall by no means pass from the Turah until all be done. Whoever, then, breaks one of the least of these commands and teaches men so, shall be called least in the reign of the heavens; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the reign of the heavens. For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall by no means enter into the reign of the heavens Mattithyahu” (Matthew) 5:17-20).
Since the ancient Ysra'ĕlis to the modern day, many social life on earth greatly change over time and the biblical teaching. Changed the roots of the language we speak and write. Change the lifestyle into another cultural. Where many of us believe or assumed that the new day always at midnight, while some other say it at evening or sunset. Very few have heard about the starting morning is the actual beginning of the new day, but had their doubt. We were closer to know about the truth, but still blind to see that truth unless we read the scriptures more carefully. To know more about the sign of the time.
If we traditionally were taught in public school or how our parent teach us who doesn't read the scriptures book (Bible), there is a high chance what we thought were true turn out to be false. Many things how we're instructed from the scriptures book have changed the way we teach our students. Because of the dividend among us have changed our own language from the original scripts. Plus, how the unbelievers of YAH would dare change the teaching in their system. For example, most Americans had been practicing the Roman-Gregorian time system since the mid 18th century, instead of using the creation time system which YAH have created. We can't go by the traditions of man that differs from the creator's instruction. If we are to remember the appointed time and the time of the seasons, should we go by the Roman-Gregorian time system or the YAH’s creation time system? Please read what the book of YIRMEYAHU (JEREMIAH) 33:20-21 have to say about that:
“Thus said YHUH, ‘If you could break My covenant with the day and My covenant with the night, so that there be not day and night in their season, then My covenant could also be broken with Dawiḏ My servant – so that he shall not have a son to reign upon his throne – and with the Lĕwites, the priests, My attendants”
If someone who study and read the bible point out to me in the book of BERĔSHITH (GENESIS), chapter one; verse 5. “There came to be evening and there came to be morning, the first day”. He or she may automatically take this conclude evening is therefore the beginning of the day, since the evening mentioned first in the scripture. I once believe that before, but not anymore. We have a bigger problem with how we read and literary don’t see how the translator had change the roots of the language how it was spoken in writing. From ancient like Hebrew to the modern language we speak and write is totally different and can be very confusing. Once a person does their best in study the language of the ancient and how they spoke and write. He or she will in time begin to understand how it was written in the scriptures book. FYI, verse 5 does not literally mean that evening is the beginning of the new day. Verse 5 tells me how the daylight end (12 hours) at evening and then the morning which fulfills the 24 hour day. To understand that evening to morning was another complete remainder of the 12 hours.
In this article topic, I, Philip Pouliot am going to share something very importation deal here. What I've learned the past few years, to what had come to my attention about the time-frame of the day. When does the day actually begin? 12 O’clock midnight?, evening? At sunset? At dusk? Or at dawn? Those who study all through the scriptures book seriously and carefully will see that the day began at dawn, before the sunrise of the day. It is no surprising that the scriptures book alone really instructed why the beginning of the day actually start at the beginning of the early, early morning rays of the sunlight (at dawn). Before the sunrise on the horizon. When people wake up every morning, people always feel like another day to deal with. However, most people in the modern day follow up with the 12 O’clock midnight as the starting of the new next day. I grew up with this 12 O’clock midnight customs, because all of my relatives and before them had been following this for a long time. Until my mid 30's, I've discovered the shocking truth about the creation time system against man made time system. When I realize that we have been living based on the traditions of man. So the question is, does the creation first day actually begin at dawn? Does it really matter how we calculate the time of the day? At the end of this document article, you will discover It does matter and will be shock how we the people have changed the time and law of Yahuah's creation and more etc...
The next problem, we should look in the very beginning of the scriptures of BERĔSHITH (Genesis) chapter one; verse two. Verse one don't count, since it's just the introduction. We should compare to each verses 2, 3, 4 before 5. To see what appear invented first, the water, darkness, evening, sunset or the light? Apparently verses 2 and 3 seen the creative forming of creation. In the beginning, we see that the Creator ONE appeared to created the light in the void of the darkness. Then in verse 4, the Creator saw the light which he created, the first thing and he said it was good. Noticed how this light appears on this first day, it renewed the creation of life. Light is necessary in the restoration of the good life.
I'm a paragraph. Click here to add your own text and edit me. It's easy.
The Creator often spoken a DAY for the light and DAY, as the 24 hour DAY period. Why not the night to be called the 24 hour NIGHT period? It is because the LIGHT RULE the DAY, according to verses 16-18.
“And YHUH made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night and the stars. And YHUH set them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night and to separate the light from the darkness. And YHUH saw that it was good.”
Noticed what the verses 17 & 18 of BERĔSHITH (GENESIS) chapter one said? "...light on the earth... rule over the day and over the night..."? The Creator had separated this light from the darkness and HE name the light ‘day’ first and then the darkness he called it ‘night’ before there came an evening or the sunset. Remember, night is not part of the evening. Nothing HE had done during the time from dusk to dawn (during the night). A time where we must understand why we usually don't deal with anything with the darkness. We tend to sleep (rest) during the remainder of 12 hour darkness. The creative work of the earth was for us to understand what was done during the 12 hours daylight before the night of the day that came.
The next thing we also must understand why this word “evening” does not refer as the sun set. Please also know that evening does not refer as the “night – layil” as well. The truth about EVENING, evening referral as the time of the afternoon period between noon and sunset, which is still in the daylight hour. As I read in the scriptures about this first creation LIGHT in verse 3, I've learned that this FIRST light is not the ray of the sun. It Yah's light. I've also learned that there would not be a small segment of dawn - (boqer) on the first day - (yown), because Yah's had not separated the (CHOSHEK) – darkness from his LIGHT ("OWR") yet. It's very likely on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th day of the creative restoration, that there was a “dawn segment” of light to begin the day, not at dusk - (ereb). Once the sun was restored to the light on the 4th day, there would have been a dawn segment of light just as we have today. According to the Webster's 1828 dictionary – a word DUSK is said to be the middle degree between light and darkness and TWILIGHT - is the faintest of light, which is reflected upon the earth after sunset and before sunrise. How on earth was I taught to practice the traditions of man to believe the big bang theory or 12 O’clock midnight, evening, nor the sunset, which opposite differently to what the book of BERĔSHITH (GENESIS) teaches?
The Roman time system was the “pre-Julian” calendar which was created during the founding of Rome and is believed to have been a lunar calendar, which may have been based on one of the Greek lunar calendars. The original Roman calendar was said to be invented by Romulus, the first king, Julius Caesar (Before Common Era) in 45 B.C.E. In 1582, Pope Gregory XIII (the Roman Catholic) ordered the change of the time system of the Gregorian Calendar, which modification with the Julian calendar. The Gregorian mathematical and astronomical work was done by Christopher Clavius, S.J. who was also the one who advised this changed. The Gregorian calendar was first adopted in the 16th century in some European countries.
The 16th century is not the first of whom changed the time and the law of YHUH, in the 4th century, the Papacy of Rome declared all citizens to keep Sunday holy instead of the true Shabbat Day law. The Papacy had changed the rule of the law and time by the false idea that reason we’re not made to be the rule of the Shabbat Day which stated in Mark 2:27. They also used the false idea about how Master, our Savor who was resurrected on Sunday as one of the new so-called "Lord's Day" as now the "new sabbath day”. Later in time, they noticed how some of the followers of Master would not dare go along agree what was demanded, so 11 years later; another of their so-called law had passed by the same demander, ruler who made that true seventh day Sabbatical ILLEGAL to punishable by DEATH! Most of the early martyrs were in fact a true Shabbat keeper did end up murdered, while some others did not because they did obey the Roman new law. They fear of death, which failed to trust in YHUH. For many generations, this Sabbatical and the appointed times somehow little by little were carried out the true doctrine. To be forgotten because of how we had ignored or reject YHUH's teaching. Yet, the good new is, HIS WORD will never disappear Mattithyahu (Matthew) 24:35. The Papacy were still not the first who had changed the time and the law of YHUH. Far back in history, Misr (Egypt), Babylon and Greece Empire times also changed the rule of the YHUH creation time system.
I often tell people that I usually avoid such authors' book of their own perceptions that differs from what the scriptural book actually teaches. Since I only focus and relied on what the Almighty's words said. Want to be more careful what I'm saying, reading or hearing what people saying about YAH's teaching. Whether it's from their biological or historical book. Since some biological and historical book aren't fully true. However, there are some historical book I do believe, by ensuring what I find is true statement. Because it matches up with what the scriptural state. Here are some interesting historical facts, which we have done some damage the time system and the Sabbatical appointed time. According to some supporting evidence in a book called Jewish Encyclopedia, page 475, this book said about how the day begins at dawn: “meaning of the day; in the Bible, the season of light to the coming forth of the stars”. Another supporting evidence, according to the Jewish Festivals: History & Observance, page 13, it said “In order to assure against profanation of Sabbath the Jew added the late Friday afternoon hours to the Sabbath.” Another supporting evidence in Judaism: Between Yesterday and Tomorrow; page 518 said “If we look at the essentials of the day of the rest and reflection, which has a religious orientation, it is possible to justify the shifting at Sabbath worship to Friday evening, the celebration of the vigil/night watch was moved back to the eve of the Feast as early as the middle age...” The next book to look up for is about the Catholicism historical fact in the Catholic Encyclopedia, volume 11, page 1068; this one said “...a sacred day of rest on the 7th day (the Sabbath). The days were reckoned from morning to morning...” In the same voluminous book of the Catholics encyclopedia for section titled; “Later Jewish Calendar”, it said “Following the reign of King Josiah (c.640-609), and especially after the Babylonian exile, a number of significant and enduring changes occurred in the Israelite calendar showing that their time... However, the day was counted from evening to evening, after the Babylonian fashion...”.
According to history, most people tend to start the laboring in the morning and then by evening the day's labor end. Here is what I have learned why YHUH's people tend to work during the daylight instead of the night. Let look into the ancient story in SHEMOTH (EXODUS) 29:38-39, where Ysraelites used to do the offerings that were required to perform on the daily basis during the daylight:
“And this is what you prepare on the altar: two lambs, a year old, daily, continually. Prepare the one (first) lamb in the morning and the other (second) lamb you prepare between the evenings...”
The verses above tell me that the Ysraelites were to offer two lambs per day: verse 39 tells us that the first lamb was to be offered in the morning and then the second lamb was to be offered in the evening! This would mean that evening must refer to a time BEFORE sunset. It also said between the evenings which happen between noon and evening. Three pm is likely the middle of the evening hour (between 12 at noon and 6 pm). Both sacrifices were offered during the daylight, but understand this, two sacrifices took place every day, during the daylight, never at night. Once again, the first sacrifice was offered in the morning and the second sacrifice was offered at even. Which must indicate the time before sunset! As we read the following passage in that scripture again, notice all the details that take place after the sacrifice is performed was still during the daylight.
Remember the story about the children of Yisrael who had marched out of Egypt the day after the Passover? After the Passover evening of the death of the firstborn of Egypt. The event of the death occurred during the day of the night Passover day. Yisreal is forbidden to leave their houses on Passover night until morning and they were commanded to leave immediately but not until the tomorrow or daybreak. Then when they marched out that morning it was the beginning of the 1st day unleavened bread and then later that same night, the 1st night of the unleavened bread was to be much observed BECAUSE it was the SAME DAY they had gone out! Not a different day! IF the day starts as sunset, then it would have been a different day. But the Word of YHUH says "...even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the YHUH went out from the land of Egypt”. The same reason why SHEMOTH (EXODUS) 12:1-10 also
YHUH has some quite bold message as HE warned us not to change his law and time. While there were other warning sign whom prophet Daniel also mentioned in the book that he knew there would be a time in the future when a man would dare to change times and law in DANI’ĔL 7:25 and this had already happened.
“...and it speaks words against the Most High and it wears out the set-apart ones of the Most High and it intends to change appointed times and law, and they are given into its hand for a time and times and half a time.”
The investigation conducted in this document article which I've shared "When Does The Creation Day Begin” suggests reckonings, namely the sunset to sunset, evening to evening, sunrise to sunrise or dawn to dawn coexisted harmoniously? With Almighty Father help, I, Philip Pouliot once again believe that the indications for the day begin is at dawn, the true measure time of the beginning of the day. YHUH is the true logical creator name. Does it make any logical sense for the day to begin at sunset, at a time when man has finished from his daily labor? Is it logical for a new day to begin at a time when a man is exhausted from his daily work? Does it make sense for a day to begin at night after the day had died out? Let us use the logic HE has given us the understanding in what has been presented as is indeed the true scriptural accurate time & very correct instruction.
Please understand that we're living in a confusing time again, just as how the time of the Babylonian did too. Once like during the tower of Babel, Egypt or the Babylon Empire. YHUH had led his people out of trouble (darkness) where they were salvaged to the evil ruler. YHUH also repeat to his people many times to ensure us not to forget his teaching (laws). A laws that would keep them away from falling into the worldly way instead of HIS way of life. To understand also about his appointed time for us to be with him. Memorial why YHUH created us and what we're to serve him for. The season of time is important for us to know the appointed time. Therefore, we must correctly know when and how can we know? Is to recognize the time of the sign that was given to us. The sign of the sun, moon and stars to know the appointed time and the season.
In our our day, we have to look up in the scriptural book extra careful what and how we read it. Since we have damaged it pretty bad. The good news once again,YHUH's words still did not disappear. We just have to sometime figure out how the time-frame work.
Please tell other about this wonderful truth,
MAY YAH BLESS YOU IN PEACE AND FOR THE TRUTH.
