Come Out of Babylon: Keep the Scriptural New Moon
Is the new moon observance of ancient Babylon still used today? The Babylonians of old looked for the first visible lunar crescent as the signal to start the month. Many groups today use this same method while claiming it is Biblical to do so. But is it? Exactly where in the Bible are we commanded to start the month at evening when the first crescent is sighted in the western sky after sunset? The often-quoted verse, Deuteronomy 16:1, used as justification, does not say that.
In fact, here is what the Bible really says: “…Come OUT OF HER [BABYLON, see v. 2, Rev. 18]…that you BE NOT PARTAKERS OF HER SINS…” (Rev. 18:4). And “…LEARN NOT the ways of the heathen…” (Jer. 10:2). Is there a connection here?
Where did the Jews get their evening-to-evening day and the “first visible crescent” traditions? The shocking fact is they got them, not from the Bible, but from ancient BABYLON! Though many scoff at such a statement, facts are facts. Long held beliefs to the contrary, do not change reality.
GET THE FACTS. Come out of Babylon…”that you receive not of her plagues” (Rev. 18:4). Read this booklet that pulls the mask off modern counterfeits masquerading as the true calendar of the Bible (Suggested donation: $2.50; US PPD).
