Today is New Moon Day. Scripture reveals that New Moons, like the seventh-day Sabbath, are worship days and days of no buying or selling. New Moon Days are the first day of each new biblical month calculated by the Calendar at Creation.
Isaiah 66:23 clearly reveals that in eternity future, Yahuwah will be worshipped on both types of days: “And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith Yahuwah.”
New Moon Day is different in some aspects from the the weekly Sabbath and the normal working days. There is no buying and selling on New Moon Day. Priestly work (including travel) is permitted, and the normal restrictions of the weekly Sabbath, like no cooking for instance, do not apply to New Moon day. New Moon Day is neither a Sabbath day nor a working day. It is a third category of days.
Ezekiel 46:1-3 places New Moons together with the seventh-day Sabbath, as opposed to the other six working days: “Thus saith the Sovereign Yahuwah; the gate of the inner court that looketh toward the east shall be shut the six working days; but on the Sabbath it shall be opened, and in the day of the New Moon it shall be opened Likewise the people of the land shall worship at the door of this gate before Master Yahuwah in the sabbaths and in the new moons.” In this passage, Yahuwah is speaking, pointing out the sins of Israel, only the lawless and disobedient will think of it as a burden or bondage (as they do today) and yearn to continue in their wicked ways: “Hear this, O ye that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail, Saying When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? And the Sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit?” (Amos 8:4, 5.) If work were allowed on New Moons, the backslidden people would not have been longing for the days of worship to be over so that they could go back to their buying and selling.
IN SUMMARY: Time should be dedicated to worship both now and for eternity as commanded by Yahuwah on New Moon Day, no commerce should be done. #todayisnewmoon
