New Moon Observation
The Fall Holy Days start the week of September 17th 2017. The Holy Days are observed between evening and evening – the info-graphic below shows the observed times – between the slashes on the calendar:
Leviticus 23:23-37 “And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation. Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD. And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God. For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people. And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people. Ye shall do no manner of work: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath.
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD. On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein. Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein. These are the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations…”
The solar eclipse is the result of the movement of the earth and moon around the sun. The moon during the new moon is between the sun and earth, when perfectly aligned it causes an eclipse view able on certain areas of the earth. The resulting darkening of the sun is great cause for sun worshipers to awe.
Man has been in awe of eclipses since ancient times. Many cultures have tried to predict the times of eclipses. Stonehenge in Europe is one example. Ancient pagans honored eclipses, like the celebration of the winter solstice, because eclipses showcase the fall and rise of the sun–the sun’s renewal.
It is for these reasons that many modern day peoples will spending the day in yoga positions in honor of the sun, watching for its renewal. Yoga is a movement prayer to the sun – sun salutations – sun worship.
But the Most High told us not to be dismayed or concerned at the signs of heaven, eclipse…He told us not to be as the Heathen!
Jeremiah 10:2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.

15 Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the Lord spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire:
16 Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image ….19 And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the Lord thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.
The new moon is dark, with no sliver or anything showing.
