I first learned of the Lunisolar Calendar only earlier this year (2009) – culminating approximately 5 years of what I now recognize as Creator's step by step preparation of my heart for its acceptance.This involved many serious life changing occurrences...
Decisions regarding family / friends / business associates / church etc. not least significant of which involved severance of many ties and the sale of my 15 year old (Satyrday dependent) business enterprise.
My mind was continually being bombarded with the words "REPAIR THE BREACH' – which I later found to be part of scripture (Isaiah 58:12).
To make a very long story short, it took me from over 40 years under SUNday into celebration of SATYRday Sabbath.
My zeal pushed me to testify of my new found love among my SUNday friends and associates and strangers – some of whom I directed to the
I found, however, that when I attempted, to 'join' that Church myself, I was stoutly forbidden in spirit from doing so – with the prompting from scripture – 'come out of her My people'! I found this very strange as it was accompanied by an inner impression not to speak of this truth to anyone unless I was 'sent' to those pre - prepared to receive it! I actually visited a nearby branch of the SDA and encountered only what I can describe as a 'dead' spirit there.
Somewhere during this search I was directed to WORLDSLASTCHANCE.COM where I have been able to confirm / reaffirm / expand on so much of His TRUTH brought out in my studies of the scriptures. I also found to my 'surprise' that they presented evidence that
I had embarked on an internet 'crusade' calling for a return to Creator's Sabbath. This was directed to thousands of Church leaders – globally. I was specially prompted to send a short version of this message to which I received the following --

I do not believe I know you. I asked my Adventist friends and they do not know you either.
I do not know how you got my e-mail address…
However, for your information, the Orthodox Church continues to celebrate the Liturgy on the Sabbath.
It also celebrates the Liturgy on the first day of the week to commemorate the Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
We have been doing this for 2000 years.
As I understand it - The Orthodox Church is considered to be the 'antiquated' affiliate/part of the Roman Catholic Church?
This response raised a RED FLAG in my mind, but at the time, I did not comprehend its true significance -- BOTH SATYRday AND SUNday!!!!
During my studies, a very unique text had caught my eye – followed by prayerful study and curiosity on my part regarding the plants affected / unaffected – which, among many other things - was actually pinpointing the 'timing' of the plague of hail in Egypt – prior to the first PASSOVER !!
Exodus 9:31 And the flax and the barley was smitten: for the barley was in the ear, and the flax was bolled.
32 But the wheat and the rye were not smitten: for they were not grown up.
Q. WHY THE DETAILS ABOUT THE MATURITY OF THE PLANTS?
Ans. TIME/SEASON - among other things which my studies revealed - too numerous to be included here.
The plague of hail preceded the first PASSOVER --- setting in motion Creator's NEW countdown of time - 1st month, New year etc ---
Exodus 13:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Sanctify unto me all the firstborn, whatsoever openeth the womb among the children of
3And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the LORD brought you out from this place: there shall no leavened bread be eaten.
4This day came ye out in the month Abib.
(Little did I know back then that I was actually looking at YHWH's re-establishment of His original Lunisolar Calendar which had been lost by the Hebrews under slavery in
After recognizing the importance of my love resulting in obedience / honor and recognition of Creator's appointments, He impressed upon me, the need to have my spirit / mind / heart / brain washed from contamination - to unlearn the years of many false doctrines / practices and to learn His Truth.
At one point I was prompted to strip off all my clothes / shoes and stand before HIM – totally naked -- to be re taught!!
During this time, in the process of dragging out my decision to sell my business in favor of observing the Sabbath, my property was burglarized of many valuables. I had made a very substantial cash investment which went awry. On more than one occasion as I spoke to HIM about it, I heard a voice behind me speak audibly over my right shoulder saying 'leave it alone, I am taking care of it'! I was alarmed and and turned to look each time. I began to think that I was going crazy!! However, I was quickly directed to a part of HIS WORD previously unknown to me – which seemed to encompass all of my then existent circumstances !!!
Isaiah 30 :
18And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.
19For the people shall dwell in
20And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers:
21And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
22Ye shall defile also the covering of thy graven images of silver, and the ornament of thy molten images of gold: thou shalt cast them away as a menstruous cloth; thou shalt say unto it, Get thee hence.
23Then shall he give the rain of thy seed, that thou shalt sow the ground withal; and bread of the increase of the earth, and it shall be fat and plenteous: in that day shall thy cattle feed in large pastures.
(Somewhere during this search I was directed to WORLDSLASTCHANCE.COM where I have been able to confirm / reaffirm / expand on so much of His TRUTH brought out in my studies of the scriptures. I also found to my 'surprise' that they presented evidence that SDA had become 'apostate' and that they were advocating home groups. I joined WLC and started to blog as ENDTIME ELIJAH – with main emphasis on the Sabbath.)
Upon my further supplication for direction and confirmation of His Truth, especially concerning His 7th day Sabbath, he showed me the unmovable rock upon which I should stand –
Before the cross - Mat.23;2,3 (MOSES' SEAT and 'ALL WHATSOEVER' MUST INCLUDE THE ORIGINAL 7th day Sabbath repeated in 'ALL WHATSOEVER' in CHRIST'S COMMANDS - AFTER THE CROSS - Mat.28:19,20.
ALL New Testament references to 'the law' must be understood/interpreted in light of the above COMMANDS (not just suggestions) directly from Christ Himself.
Anything that Paul or any other Apostle wrote or practiced (regarding the 7th day Sabbath) MUST BE IN KEEPING WITH CHRIST'S COMMANDS!!!!!!
BEFORE THE CROSS-
1Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,
2Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:
3 ALL therefore WHATSOEVER they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.
AFTER THE CROSS-
Matthew 28:19-20 (King James Version)
19Go ye therefore, and TEACH ALL NATIONS, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20Teaching them to observe ALL things WHATSOEVER I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
MY NEXT QUESTION-
Is He 'with us' when we do/teach OTHERWISE instead of HIS COMMANDED 'ALL WHATSOEVER'???
Upon searching many concordances / commentaries / lexicons etc, as far as I could find, this particular combination of texts had not previously been used to support / advocate the teaching of the true Sabbath – by anyone!!
I soon found that when presented, this brought an effective end to all debates against the 7th day Sabbath.
Q. Could this be 'NEW REVELATION' for the end time???
Something had always puzzled me - if 'NEW MOON' and 'Sabbaths' will be celebrated in New Jerusalem - why have we been keeping weekly Sabbath only?
Because of the significant mention of the 'NEW MOON' in scripture including Isaiah 66:22-23 / Col. 2: - I have revisited Col.2 :14-16 and concluded that Paul must have been encouraging them not to allow anyone to 'judge' them because they had actually continued to celebrate the feast days which 'ARE' a shadow of things - then and now - 'YET" to come, (but the substance is Christ). We - His living body (substance) still here on earth must therefore now live/show/represent this 'substance' by 'living' the patterns (shadows) - until they are all (literally) fulfilled - when heaven and earth pass away !! All of the feast days/Sabbaths must be observed until He returns.
ONLY THE SACRIFICES SHOULD HAVE CEASED at the cross!!
It was shortly after this progression, that the Lunisolar Calendar was brought to my attention - by one who has become very dear to me here at WLC – even before its presentation here.
My first impression was that it 'appeared' to contradict the 4th command of 6+1 -- (because of the intervening 'none days' which are not counted). However, close examination of scripture shows that there is no text which says that the 'weeks' must be an unbroken / consecutive / circuitous cycle - (A CLEAR ASSUMPTION) which was apparently a late adoption by the Jews on edict under the last recognized Sanhedrin High Priest (Rabbi) Hillel II under great pressure from Emperor Constantine to abolish all things 'Jewish'.
The articles – THREE MONTHS IN A ROW and Twelve Criteria of the True Crucifixion established by scripture, represent the crux of the matter for me.
The NEW WORLD Calendar proposed for launch on Jan 2012 has 'none days' which will cause Creator's Sabbaths to 'float' thru the week in every subsequent year. see (new)worldcalendar.com. (then it will be truly LOST)!!!
I see the restoration of Creator's Lunisolar Calendar as actually the only way for true Sabbatarians to identify and preserve His beloved holy Sabbaths and other appointments – fixed in the heavens - ruled by His faithful servant - the moon - out of reach of further trampling by the enemy under man made calendars - Gregorian and otherwise.
One SATYRday Sabbatarian said to me recently, 'we will just watch the SUNday people and observe the day preceding theirs, that way we will know when the 'true Sabbath is'.
And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
Many will continue to wonder AND WANDER after the beast!!
I pray all will wake up to this present 'gentle' though uncomfortable life changing TRUTH and not continue until it necessitates a more shocking and 'RUDE' awakening!!
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
----- These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. ----
