When Does A New Year
Begin?: March-April Which is the Easter Period!
What Then of the Feast OF "Saint Sylvester We Celebrate as New year?
GOD HONOR ONLY HIS WORD , SO HIS ANGELS DO!
Dear brethren, on which word of God do we stand on
during our memorial celebration of the death of “Saint Sylvester” as new
year for good wishes, and called on God to bless us? Or we think
that it just suffice for us to shout for blessings from God for anew
year in any way we want, since we are the ones commanding him!
We All Agree That The
‘Passover Feast’ Is Always Celebrated Within The Month Of Roman March,
Corresponds To The Departure Of The People Of Israel From Egypt. God Told The
-This Month Is To Be The First Month
Of The Year For You …. From The Evening Of The Fourteenth Day Of The First
Month ….. It Is Sacrifice For Passover To Honour The Lord, Because He
Passed Over The Houses Of The Israelites In Egypt” (Exodus
-“And they kept the Passover in the first
month, on the fourteenth day of the first month, in the evening” (Numbers 9:5).
According to the Bible, this period that corresponds to late Roman March-Easter
period (Passover) is the beginning of the new year that extends to early April.
Therefore, the first month of the year which is part of March –April and not
the Roman Catholic instituted December 31st−January1st Feast of Saint
Sylvester. Is this not the accomplishment of the prophecy of Daniel 7:25?
Therefore, the date on which ‘Pass over’ is celebrated following the Roman calendar
always corresponds to the 14th day, counting from the beginning of this first
month of the year (Nisan) before the Lord as written in the Bible. If things
are so clear like this, why have we decided to dishonour our God, and give
glory to Satan who has carried out these changes?
On the calendar below, we see
that on the Roman calendar, the last half of the month of March (the 3rd month)
plus half of the first part of April (the 4th month) is equal to the 1st month
(Nisan), which God established as the first month of the year.
Therefore, the end of the year as illustrated on the calendar is the rest of
the month of February and March (the 2nd and 3 rd month according to the Roman
calendar). This is the right end of the year, and we are supposed to celebrate
in giving thanks to God for the past year and entrusting Him the New Year as it
You shall tithe all the yield of your seed, which comes forth from the
field year by year. And before the Lord your God, in the place which he will
choose to make his name dwell there, you shall eat the tithe of your grain , of
your wine, and of your oil, and the firstlings of your herd and flock; that you
may learn to fear the Lord your God always … … Spend the money for what ever
you desire, … what ever your appetite craves; and you shall eat there before
the Lord and rejoice, you and your household. And you shall not forsake the
Levite who is within your towns, for he has no portion or inheritance with you
(Deuteronomy. 14: 22-27).
31st -1st January is the Memorial Death Celebration of the death of
Roman Catholic Saint Sylvester who Died December 31st 33AD
Under Babylon’s spiritual captivity, we have been doing this at the wrong time
and not in the honour of our God, but Satan, through the Roman Catholic
instituted : “feast of saint Sylvester”( End of year December 31st January1st
). Therefore, January 1st is the beginning of a false new year. Saint Sylvester
was the first Roman pope after Emperor Constantine and died in December 31st,
When the Bible talks of : Th e feast of ingathering at the year’s end ( Exodus
34:22-23). Which is this end of year ? Is it December 31st January 1st which is
the feast of Saints Sylvester in memory of his death, or the Easter period
marking the departure of the people of Israel from Egypt in March, which is
This day therefore, was set aside by the Roman Catholics in honour of St
Sylvester’s day of death. So have we then become worshippers of demons called
saints! Can we answer this question: Who is saint Sylvester to us the children
of God that we are honouring his death day? All this is the accomplishment of
Daniel 7: 25.
If the devil has to counterfeit or change the right end of year,
it means that, this holds a very important place in the heart of God. This is
the day we have to rejoice ourselves in the Lord’s presence, thanking and
praising Him for having allowed us under the land of the sun for one more year.
He considers this very important, and this is why He gives us the command of
Who is “saint Sylvester” that we the sons of righteousness should ignorantly
worship and celebrate? I did this foolishness when I was still in darkness,
until the Lord opened my eyes to the truth. So, gone are those days that I
sheepishly followed a blind mass to hurt my God, in doing things that His word
does not command.
The whole world indeed, is under the power of Satan as the Bible
says. It is true that, each and every one of us will not be judged by what the
whole world is doing, irrespective of how good the thing may seem to be, but by
what we knew of the word of God , but failed to obey.
At this point, let us ask this question again: Do these alterations mean
anything to you? Or shall we say, this is the Jewish Law, but we are now save
by Grace in the Lord Jesus! The 1st month known before the Lord our God instead
corresponds to the 3rd month according to Roman counting.
Let us ask ourselves
this question: Why did the Romans not match their 1st month January to the
Lord’s 1st month Nisan? On the contrary we have 1st month Nisan = 3rd month
March. Do you understand what we are trying to illustrate?
The Lord says: He who has wisdom will understand the tricks of the devil. When
the Bible says: On the first day of the third month of the eleventh year
(Ezekiel 31: 1): Which was this 3rd month referring to according to us? And has
this 3rd month changed, or does it still remain the same? Was it the Lord’s
counting, or the Roman counting? These are questions we must answer.
Listen Brethren, as the Israelites were leaving Egypt to the promised land and
God told them: “ You are leaving Egypt on this first day in the First month
that I give you as from today, the month of Abib (Nisan).” In this same way,
when we were leaving Egypt (the world of sins) to follow Christ into the
kingdom of heaven (our promised land), the Lord said from that particular
moment, ‘‘your first month of the year is Abib (Nisan),” which is the Roman’s
3rd month of the year-March’’. And the end of year before him from this month
will not be our Roman December.
YES! THE DEVIL HAS CHANGED THE TIME AND LAWS OF
GOD, AND THE SAINTS HAVE BEEN GIVEN INTO HIS HANDS. DANIEL 7: 25.
If for example, God were to command us today as He talked to his people:
"Fast on the 4th, 5th, 7th, and 10th months, for joy and peace among yourselves
Since He will be waiting to see this done at the months
established by Him, are we to follow the Roman 4th (April), 5th (May),
7th(July) and 10th (October)? If yes, then we will be completely out of God’s
will because these months before Him will instead correspond to Romans 2nd,
3rd, 5th and 8th months respectively.
Therefore, to rightly situate ourselves with the Lord, we always have to make
two months backward, with the Roman months.
As such, the end of the year
traditionally considered to be in December will instead be in February - March
= the 12th month Adar: … “day of the twelfth month Adar” ( Esther 3:7). The 1st
month NISAN will begin the new year in part of March-April, which instead is
the 3rd and 4th month on the Roman calendar.
THE ANCIENT MONTHLY CALENDAR
OF GOD’S PEOPLE CHANGED BY THE ROMANS MUST BE RESTORED.
Two known major changes have been made on the
Roman monthly calendar, which had long been existing even before the birth of
Christ as illustrated below:
Firstly, is the calendar of Julius Caesar that came into effect around 46 BC.
He chose the 7th month of Roman calendar with 31 days to which he attributed
his name. The month till date is known as July (named after Julius). He
considered his name worthy of the longest month of the year.
after him Augustus Caesar also saw it necessary to give his name to the 8th
month (August) and took a day from February unto August for it to have the same
number of days (31) as July. So we see that these fictitious counts of monthly
days that we are abiding to, has nothing to do with those established by God, who
created and established everything orderly.
Secondly, there was the Gregorian calendar that came into effect in 1582 with
the elimination of 10 days such that a day, which was supposed to be the 5th
automatically, became the 15th . This was by Pope Gregory XIII (standard
Encyclopaedia world’s knowledge, Volt V, art “calendar” page 360).
as spiritual Jews today are not following the godly instituted ways of life
through our Lord Jesus Christ, then we are following the Satanic Roman
institutions. Only two camps exist and you either belong to one or the other.
In which are you?
The Lord Jesus said: I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are
rich) and the slander of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are
a synagogue of Satan (Revelations 2:9). Are you one of the false Jews our Lord
Jesus Christ is referring to in this text?
I have vowed to the Lord, not to bow to any thing instituted by the devil that
He has revealed to me. For are we to obey the Lord or Satan because of merry
making and feasting? Certainly not!
HOW HAVE THE MONTHS BEEN CHANGED?
The Bible says: The Lord said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt: “ This
month shall be for you the beginning of months; it shall be the first
month of the year for you” (Exodus 12: 1-3).
“The Lord spoke to Moses in the Sinai desert in the first month of
the second year (Number 9:1. Deuteronomy 16:1-2 ).
Which was this first
month? We are now following a changed Roman instituted monthly calendar,
accomplishing therefore the prophecy of Daniel 7:25.
Please, the Lord Jesus
Christ and the apostles followed the ancient calendar established by God and
given to His spiritually chosen (the Jews) (Revelation 3:9). Please, let us
treat this matter with great seriousness. The Passover feast that was to be
celebrated this first month of the year –Nisan, was observed by the Israelites
as stated in the New Testament.
Therefore, our Lord Jesus and the apostles maintained Nisan as the first
month (i.e. the last part of Roman March and the first part of April). Read
Luke 22: 7, Mathew 26:17, Mark 14:12, John 13:1. Therefore, the months
instituted by God have to be respected by His chosen, the spiritual Israelites
that we have become today, through the blood of Jesus.
Before and after Jesus, the Romans had their calendar. They were gentiles,
foreigners, and not God’s chosen people. They were people destined to perish.
It was only through the blood of Jesus Christ, that those who believed joined
God’s people. As soon as they became part of God’s people, they were to start
obeying God’s Laws given to his chosen as it is written:
And the Lord says to those foreigners who become part of his people, who love
Him and serve him, who observe the Sabbath and faithfully keep his covenant: ‘I
will bring you to Zion my sacred hill give you joy in my house of prayer, and
accept the sacrifices you offer on my altar. My temple will be called a house
of prayer for the people of all nation( Isaiah 56:6-7 Good News)
Therefore today, we Roman gentiles, foreigners, bought by the blood of Jesus
Christ to become spiritual Israel, have to obey this command of the Lord given
to his originally chosen people.
But unfortunately, we have all
moved astray in disobedience, rejecting God’s calendar and adopting the
calendar. Do we think He will abandon the natural cultivated branches
the wild cultivated olive branches? The answer is no! Let us strive to
please Him in everything we do, because he is our God that we love. Read
SO HOW DO I TRACE
THE RIGHT END OF THE MONTH AND THE BEGINNING OF EVERY NEW MONTH FROM THE MOON
AS THE BIBLE SAYS:
“ You created the moon to mark the months...” Psalms 104:19
To trace the right end of months as to give God
His due praises, and thanksgiving in Spirit (individually or as a group), we
recommend that beginning students observe the movement of the moon from the
time it appears in a very small “c” shape form until when it disappears and
reappears in that very small ‘‘c’’, as multitudes do.
As the sun rises in the
morning and shines brightly overhead at midday, so too the new moon begins its
course from the first day in a “C “ shape at setting sun, and is in a complete
round “O” shape towards the 14th day which is mid-month, shinning brightly in
the sky at night, just like the mid day sun. This is full moon 14th as the
Bible says : Blow the trumpet for the festival when the moon is full( Psalm
Equally the Passover was celebrated at mid month 14th of the first month of the
year (Leviticus 23:5, Numbers 9:1-3). After this day, it starts gradually
losing its brightness, and after the next 14th days, sets making a total of 28
The monthly female menstrual cycle of 28days (even though with some
biological exceptions) is in a great way spiritually depicting the number of
days in a month. With careful studies using the moon to mark the end of each
month as it is written, we have for over eight year’s observation, notice the
months to be usually 28 days.
Another new moon (month) begins the following day in a “C” shape, at evening
(even though some may exceed some days before we can see it’s appearance in the
sky). This will be the first day in the beginning of the new month. Mark on
your Roman calendar, and superpose it no matter the date on which it falls.
From this first day, count through the months of the Roman calendar, and superpose
where the month next ends. In superposing a Biblical month, on the Roman
months, it will always take a part each of two Roman months, as we see on the
Part of October, which is the Roman 10th month, and part of November (Roman
11th month), gives us the Biblical 8th month (Marchesvan). Part of November,
and part of December (Roman 12 month), gives us the Biblical 9th month
When we follow this method, and counting from the Biblical 1st day in
March-Roman Calendar, which is the first day of the first month of the year,
the 14th day is always on a Friday (Beginning from sun set on Thursday since a
day begins from sun set to sun set), which was the beginning of the Passover
feast (Easter). The evening of the arrest of our Lord Jesus Christ for
crucifixion. This was therefore the first month of the year, spoken of in
From the beginning, it was difficult for me to obey. But the Holy Spirit would
always remind me to look up the sky towards the end of every month, when the
moon was to disappear completely from the sky during the day, and the night;
and when it was just re-appearing in a very small “C” shaped form.
moment, I no longer find any difficulties given that, it is just flowing as a
way of life in me. What I once considered as legends or works of the law is
today my normal way of life, just as the wrong Roman timing is flowing as a
normal way of life in us.
Even the spiritually dead Muslims, have this commandment established as a way
of life, and instead find the Roman calendar we are respecting, very strange.
We therefore have no excuse claiming before God that it is burdensome and
unnecessary, when we are having the Holy Spirit at our disposal to teach and
lead us to obey.
Has the Lord not said: By means of the Spirit I will teach you
my laws? Desire to know it, and He will teach you. But if we do not, He will
never force us. Those who are really doing His will, will cry out like the
psalmist: Teach me your laws O Lord; make them known to me (Psalm 25:4-5).
illiterate parents in the village have no written calendar, but will always
tell me: “This is month end, and this is the beginning of the new month,” as
they observe the movement of the moon. I used to argue with them ignorantly
using the Roman calendar, until when the Lord opened my eyes to see that they
were right and I was wrong.
Carefully study the biblical Calendar below to see
the 1st Month of the Year, before the LORD, he is expecting your praises and
Thanks giving, and to bless you!
WHAT DID APOSTLE PAUL MEAN IN ROMANS 14:5, GALATIANS 4:10,1st TIMOTHY 4:3-4 AND COLOSSIANS 10:25 SAYING:
“YOU OBSERVE DAYS, AND MONTHS, AND SEASONS AND YEARS!”(CEREMONIAL SABBATHS) ?
The Bible says: You observe days, and months, and seasons and
years! (Galatians 4:10-11). Paul clearly meant, the way it was all done in the
Old Testament ceremonial ways of works, and the offering of sacrifices like:
Food, drink, wine, meat etc, which is the ceremonial Law as he further
clarifies in verse 21-26 when he says, ‘desire to be under the Law.’ For
instance, the Bible says:
-“Three times in a year you shall keep a feast of unleavened
bread; as I commanded you, you shall eat unleavened bread for seven days at the
appointed time in the appointed month Abib, for in it you came out of Egypt
(Atonement day) “(Exodus 23:14-15).
-“On the tenth day of the seventh month, the Israelites and
the foreigners living among them must fast and do no work. On that day the
ritual is to be performed to purify them from all their sins, so that they will
be ritually clean( Leviticus 16: 29-30).
-“The pass over celebrated to honour the Lord, begins at
sunset on the fourteenth day of the first month. On the fifteenth day the
festival of unleavened Bread begins, and for seven days you must not eat any
bread made with yeast ”( Leviticus 23: 5-6).
-“The Festival of shelters begins on the fifteenth day of the
seventh month and continues for seven days. On the 1st of these days …
( Leviticus 33: 35). Here, we are dealing essentially with the ceremonial
Sabbaths (holy days), which ceased from being effective with the coming of
Christ. Today in Israel, the Jews that rejected and keep rejecting Christ are
still obeying these ceremonial Sabbaths under Judaism the old religious system
of works, before the coming of Christ.
These and many others constitute the ceremonial and civil Laws, which were
Temporal and shadow of what was to come (Jesus Christ). Those who had believed
in Christ seemed to have been continuing with these practices, and that is why
Paul made the statement in Galatians 4:10-11.
They were now to be led by the
Holy Spirit in obedience of God’s laws, rather than the practice of works as we
have been saying. Looking at it spiritually in this perspective, we will not
find ourselves in contradiction with the scriptures. To further clarify issues:
Do we not, in spirit and truth thank the lord every day, every week,
every month and at the end of every year? Yes, we do organise special service
of thanksgiving to the Lord every end of year, even though at the wrong time.
Do we follow the ceremonial practices as is stipulated in the Old
Testament? Certainly not! Is this not what Paul meant? Our problem here is that
they have all been changed and we are following the wrong ones, as more will be
discovered as we read ahead.
The right time that God commanded for this,
is not obeyed! Satan has change it and we are obeying him. God is an orderly
God and his program the functioning of things. He has carefully program when we
have to do what! The says plainly: “ He controls the Times and
seasons...” Daniel 2:21.
Therefore, in order not to be led astray in the misinterpretation of this
statement of Apostle Paul, we must spiritually be led to understand it’s domain
of application, and circumstances.
We must be careful of this warning:
also our beloved brother Paul wrote to you according to the wisdom given him,
speaking of this as he does in all his letters. There are some things in them
hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own
destruction, as they do the other scriptures. You therefore, beloved, knowing
this beforehand, beware lest you be carried away with the error of Lawless men
and lost your own stability ( 2nd Peter 3:15-17).”
If salvation by grace inn Jesus meant that Saints( believers in Christ) could
then live a lawless life in doing whatever the want, God would have again
been warning them that Satan will change His Times and Laws and we the Saints
will obey him(Daniel 7:25).
When He talked of Saints, He meant
believers in Christ, and not unbelievers. They are the born again
children of God in Christ who are called SAINTS, and not Roman Catholic
appointed death “saints”:
-“To the Church of God which is at Corinth, with all the SAINTS who are in the whole of Achaia” 2nd Corinthians 1:1.
the Church of God which is at Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ
Jesus, called to be SAINTS together with all those who in every place
call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ..” 1st Corinthians 1:2
-“To all God’s beloved in Roman, who are called to be SAINTS” Romans 1:7.
God had for long warned through prophet Daniel that Satan will change
His Times and Laws and His SAINTS will obey him. When the Lord Jesus
Christ came, He still reminded believers in Christ of this warning
saying: “ So when you see the desolating sacrilege spoken of by prophet
Daniel , standing in the Holy place (let the reader understand)
then.....” Matthew 24:15
This is the Lord Jesus Christ we claim
to be saved by grace in Him, saying this! Do we therefore want to say
that Apostle Paul called us to disobey God and Jesus Christ? Certainly
not! We are the ones misinterpreting him as to live a lawless life.
point that proves our spiritual blindness is that, we are celebrating
something on the programming of the devil as if it was from God without
any biblical backing, there is no problem! We see it as divine and so
legal before the Lord to be obeyed. But when we attempt to point out
God’s programming which is biblically backed, problems arises with
violent opposition and we start talking of not being under the Law but
