News Letter 5844-029
1st day of the Seventh month 5844 years after creation
October 2, 2008
Sent out on the 30th day of the 6th month
Shabbat Shalom Brethren,

This evening of Sept 30 October 1st is the 30 day since the moon was last seen at the beginning of the 6th month. With no moon sighted in Jerusalem, this month can only be 30 days long there for the next day, the evening of October 1st and Day of October 2nd.

Here is the New Moon report for the sixth month.

New Moon Report
September 2008
Sixth Biblical Month

On Monday September 1, 2008 the new moon was sighted from Israel. The
moon was sighted from Ashdod by Magdi Shamuel and Eli Shamuel at 19:24.

Rosh Chodesh Sameach!
Happy New Moon!

Nehemia Gordon
Jerusalem, Israel

On the evening of September 1 and the day of September 2 was the first day of the sixth month. Each month is 29 or 30 days in length. Because the month is only 29 or 30 days all we have to do is add 29 to September 1-2 to arrive at the date the seventh month is to start.

This would be the evening of September 30 and the day of October 1st.

The moon had a possibility of being seen on this date and as reported last month was highly unlikely. It has NOT been seen. There for the month is automatically 30 days long.

New Moon Not Sighted

On Tuesday September 30, 2008 the new moon was not sighted by
observers from Israel. With the time between sunset and moonset only
20 minutes this was exactly as expected. As a result, Yom Teruah will
begin Wednesday night, Oct 1, which is the 31st day from the previous
sighting. This is because a lunar month can only be 29 or 30 days long
and the non-sighting tonight made the Sixth biblical month 30 days.

Jerusalem, Israel

This means that the evening of October 1st and the day of October 2 is the 1st day of the Seventh month and from here we can count out when all the Holy Days are to come. See the home page of www.sightedmoon.com

It is because of this not knowing when the moon will be seen that we are sure of the methodology for determining the beginning of the month. It is not a conjunctured moon as used by those who use the Hebrew calendar. It is a sighted moon. It is because no man can know the day or the hour that the moon will be seen, and precisely because of this uncertain event, that no man can know when the day or the hour the Messiah will return. Again you can read the two articles The return of Yahshua at https://sightedmoon.com/sightedmoon_2015/?page_id=20 and Conjunction or Sighted Which? at https://sightedmoon.com/sightedmoon_2015/?page_id=22

By waiting and looking for the moon as we do, it is never possible to know the day or the hour in advance, until we actually look for it and see it. This year was another example of this prophesy by Yahshua.

This method of determining the new moon is also being practiced by the Sanhedrin in accordance with the Talmud and Mishna.

Nehemis Gordon has written a new article about the Jewish perspective of Yom Teruah. You can read it at http://www.karaite-korner.org/yom_teruah.shtml

Here is the article from last year showing Why the Jews do not know the meaning of this very special day. https://sightedmoon.com/sightedmoon_2015/?page_id=176

Also I have a lady who is again offering a generous gift to those in need. Please read the following.
Dear Mr. Dumond,

I’ve been prayerfully considering this proposal lately, and asked my husband what he
thought, as well. We would like to purchase and send out 15 copies of your DVD
Chronological Order of Prophecies in the Jubilees to the first 15 of your readers
who request it (postage included) via our e-mail address. We would prefer these to
go out to those who are financially unable to afford the DVD at this time, or who
have family or friends they would like to get this important message to and couldn’t
afford it otherwise, or perhaps to a group.

The recent e-mail you posted on the Sabbath books by Samuele Bacchiocchi was a
success. We received e-mails from all over the globe requesting them. Out of the
two cases of books, we have only five copies of The Sabbath Under Crossfire
remaining, if anyone is still interested. They remain free of charge, postage

Let us know what you think of this idea. We believe this message is too important
not to get out to as many as possible. While 15 copies may not be much, it is a
beginning that can spread to those with ears to hear.

Again, thank you for your help and consideration in this matter and for all your
help in getting out the Bacchiocchi Sabbath books.

Please make all your correspondence with Karen at kjorge1982@yahoo.com and I thank her for her thoughtfulness and generousity.

Others have also written and said the following;

……I want to thank you so much for your insight
and your website once again. It is helping so much with all I am trying to learn
about the feasts, sabbaths, and timing and the true calendar we should all be

Many blessings and Shalom to you……m

Dear Joe
It takes a special person to hold the weight of something this important on
his shoulders. I cannot remember if I told you this or not….

Read this:
Da:7:10: A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand
thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood
before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.

What books are opened? and who are the 10,000 x 10,000?

Everyone that I have asked has stated that this is the judgment of the
righteous. Let’s look at some numbers:

There are 6.5 billion living on the earth. There are 6 billion people since
Adam who has lived and died. Add them together and that is 12.5 billion
people ever created.

When I ask people what percentage of the people will make into the kingdom
of heaven I get 10 – 20%. Well, if we take 10% that would be 1.25 billion.
That is alot! And that would mean that half of them would be alive right
now, walking around… 625 million.

However, Daniel 7:10 says that 10,000 x 10,000 = 100 million. 100 million
is less than 1% of 12.5 billion. So, if our understanding is correct, less
than 1% will make it into the kingdom of heaven. Can you believe it? Less
than 1%! And if I think I am one of them, I am dreaming. None the less, I
am shooting to be one of those listed in the 1%.

And that would mean that you are fishing and hunting for less than 1%. That
means that 99% are scoffers.

Stand strong and rejoice for the 1%. That is all you get. And you will not
meet all of them. So, if you somehow manage to meet 10% of the 1%, I would
be surprised! (that would be 10 million people)

I have sent your web site to all of my friends and family.

I do pray the veil is removed from their eyes so they can see, with thier eyes and

Lastly if you are in the Greater Toronto Area and would like to fellow ship with us here is the contact information.


You are invited to join us as we study and look forward to our Messiah’s
end-time ministry for us as depicted in the fall festivals of Israel. Our
home will be open and convocations will be held according to the following

*Yom Teruah/Feast of Trumpets (annual sabbath) – Thursday October 2 – 11 AM
+ fellowship dinner + 7 PM
*Yom Kippur/Day of Atonement (annual sabbath) – Saturday October 11 – 3 PM
+ supper after sunset
*Succot/Feast of Tabernacles (annual sabbath) – Thursday October 16 – 11 AM
+ fellowship dinner + 7 PM
*Succot – Saturday October 18 – 4 PM
*Succot – Last Great Day (annual sabbath) – Thursday October 23 – 11 AM +
fellowship dinner + 7 PM

Other brethren and I will be presenting studies on several present truth
topics, and we will also have outstanding DVD/CD studies from Brad Scott
(Wild Branch Ministries) and Tony Robinson (Restoration of Torah), two
brethren whose messages I was privileged to hear in person at the
ResTORAHation Conference in Chicago this summer. Steve Kraner, whose
ministry has blessed us for the last several festival seasons, has informed
me that due to increasing interest throughout the Chicagoland area in
celebrating the Scriptural appointed times, he may not be able to join us
here this fall. If he proceeds with plans to hold convocations in his area
I’m sure we will all wish our Heavenly Father Yahuah’s blessings on his

As noted, fellowship dinners/suppers are included on the four festival
sabbaths, and those attendees who are able to do so are encouraged to bring
vegan food contributions for these meals. Please inform me if you plan to
attend, so that we can have some idea how much food we need to prepare.

The calendar we use to determine festival timing is based on simple
Scriptural principles, i.e. the month (or moon-th) begins with the sighting
of the new moon crescent at Jerusalem, and the year begins when barley has
reached the appropriate green ear stage of ripeness in the Land of Israel.
Those wishing to research this subject should go to
for more detailed studies.
