In recent years, increasing light on the Sabbath has revealed a long-forgotten truth: the fact that the Biblical seventh-day Sabbath cannot be found using a pagan calendar. Only by using the ancient Hebrew calendar, the calendar of Creation, can the true Sabbath be found. Various objections to this new and very startling truth have been raised. This article answers 10 common objections raised against the Biblical Lunar Sabbath.

“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast . . . And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” (Revelation 13:4-6, 8, KJV)

This prophecy, recorded in the last book of the Bible, is a revealing look into the very near future. It establishes that the final conflict between the forces of Good and the forces of Evil will be over worship.

The fact that the battle over worship figures so predominantly in the prophecies of the final conflict, implies that there is something different, two warring beliefs,in the realm of worship previously not on the stage of World Religion.

This controversy can only be over the day of worship, because it is by the day of worship that one’s loyalty is expressed to the deity he worships. Yahuwah Himself emphasized upon which day He was to be worshipped when He admonished:

The seventh-day is the Sabbath of Yahuwah thy Elohim. (See Exodus 20:8-10.)

In recent years, increasing light on the Sabbath has revealed a long-forgotten truth: the fact that the Biblical seventh-day Sabbath cannot be found using a pagan calendar. Only by using the ancient Hebrew calendar, the calendar of Creation, can the true Sabbath be found.

Various objections to this new and very startling truth have been raised. Some people rush to their pastors with the eager inquiry: “Are these things true?” Others are confused by apparent contradictions. Many articles and videos have been produced claiming to show the “error” in the lunar Sabbath belief.

A careful examination of Scripture reveals the truth. In the light of Scripture, the “proofs” against the lunar Sabbath are found to be inconsistent with Scripture, history and the manner in which Yahuwah works.

Following are 10 common objections raised against the Biblical Lunar Sabbath, and their respective Answers.

OBJECTION #1: “If the lunar Sabbath is true, why haven’t we heard about it before? This cannot be true because God would never allow the Sabbath to be so completely lost and forgotten!!”

ANSWER: Because the Sabbath is so very important, this is an assumption many have made. However, it is an erroneous assumption. Scripture itself prophecies that the true Sabbath would be forgotten.

Yahuwah was like an enemy. He has done violence to His tabernacle, He has destroyed His place of assembly; Yahuwah has caused the appointed feasts and Sabbaths to be forgotten in Zion. (See Lamentations 2:5-6.)

When truth is not cherished as it should be, Yahuwah removes it for safe keeping. When early Christians compromised, embracing paganism, Yahuwah Himself caused the Sabbaths to be forgotten.

I will also cause all her mirth to cease, her feast days, her New Moons, her Sabbaths – All her appointed feasts. (See Hosea 2:11.)

But the promise is, that in the last remnant of time, truth would be restored:

“Because My people have forgotten Me, . . . they have caused themselves to stumble in their ways, from the ancient paths . . . .” (Jeremiah 18:15, KJV)

Thus says Yahuwah: “Stand in the ways and see, And ask for the old paths, where the good way is, And walk in it; Then you will find rest for your souls. (See Jeremiah 6:16.)

“Those from among you shall build the old waste places; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; And you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, the Restorer of Streets to Dwell In. If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on My holy day; and call the Sabbath a delight . . . .” (Isaiah 58:12, 13, NKJV)
