Helpful lunar based Sabbath logic from our perspective.

This was a response to a discussion about lunar based sabbath that I thought would benefit the internet folks who receive this blog.
Many Blessings,
Bro. JS Lowther
Those who would say that lunar based sabbath keepers are violating Exodus 20 by keeping a week with less than 6 working days or more than 6 working days, do not know what we believe … at all.
Here, Let me lay forth Ezekiel’s way of explaining lunar based sabbath, maybe a prophet will help clarify our position:
Eze 46:1 Thus saith the Lord GOD; 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.
Notice, The sabbath and days of New Moon are not part of the 6 working days.
And YES, we ALWAYS have 6 (SIX) working day between every Sabbath from week to week.
A favor? yes please, look up “sabbath” and “New Moon” and see how many times they occur side by side in the bible, and ask why that is? Could it be Ezekiel is on to something? I’d say so… he is a prophet after all and a priest of the LORD.
So, let me explain in ’emoji’? how this works numerically and looks in signature:
The last Sabbath at the end of every month happens before the phase or sign of the New Moon, and moreover is linked to the feast of the New Moon as a sabbatical time of worship and assembly.
Therefore we keep both the 7th day (lunar month’s 28th day at evening / 29th day ) as holy as well as the day(s) of the New Moon with NO WORK in between but as one festival, that is from the 29th through the 1st of the New Month, all days are regarded as Sabbatic, in that we do not work but hold the Num 10:10 assembly and Psalm 81:1-4 solemn feast on those days… every month.
So, here it is in Exodus 31:13 Signs and Lev 23:1-4 Season lingo (See Gen 1:14):
The 7th at evening / 8th day is Sabbath (the sign: ? first quarter of the moon).
The 14th at evening / 15th day is Sabbath (the sign: ?full moon)
The 21st at evening / 22nd day is Sabbath (the sign: ?last quarter of the moon)
The 28th at evening / 29th day is Sabbath (the sign: ?waning crescent moon)
Now this ?is the start of our New Moon solemn feast days the 28th at evening / 29th day ? and it continues until the moon is NEW… New MOON ?.
It happens like this with months of 29 days ?? .   
It happens like this with months of 30 days  ???.
But both ‘resets’ our Sabbath to be numbered as prior stated, every month is the same:
1, 8, 15, 22, 29   or 0 , 7, 14, 21, 28 at evening, 
 or ?– six days –?– six days – ?-six days-?-six days- ?(?)? – six days ……….. so on, do you get it?
There are always 6 working days between sabbaths even when the New Moon is added to the last sabbath as a solemn assembly.
The New moon is added to the sabbath not the work week, and we find no contradiction or variance with the law because the positive command(s), such as Exodus 20:9-10 says: “Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work (like Ezekiel said in 46:1) But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God.
I do hope this helps, look up the verses, check it out and please feel free to contact RNCM for more information.
May many blessings of God’s good graces be given in the name of our Lord an savior Jesu(s) Christ 
 Shew me thy ways, O YHWH; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
(Psalms 25:1-5)

About JS Lowther

Foremost I know that I am a chief sinner saved by Grace. I am a servant of YHWH Almighty the one true God Who is Father, Son and Spirit. I believe in God's only begotten and perfect Son Jesu(s) Christ whose redemption power of my soul I have Faith in and testify of. Having been redeemed by the blood of Christ, I wish to no longer spend my time in the lusts of the flesh and of this world, but to promote the Gospel of the Kingdom by means of the knowledge of the New Covenant, a reNewal of the Covenant God made with his people Israel in the blood of Christ (Jer 31:31 and Heb 8:8) whereby He writes His Law upon the Heart and Mind beside the forgiveness of sin and transgressions. I believe Christ Jesus is the incarnate Son of God as the WORD made flesh, and the son of man born of the virgin Mary conceived of the Holy Spirit: I believe Christ Jesus Lived a perfect life for us as a living sacrifice as well as a pattern of the Sanctified newness of life a believer has in Him, I believe Christ Jesus died a cursed death on the Cross for His people of Covenant who are sinners, and I believe in Christ Jesus who Resurrected with power from Death from the grave to Justify the offenders. This is the same Jesus who is indeed the Son of David and king of Israel, who is both LORD and Christ over all the kings and dominions of the earth! In the fullness of time YHWH will regather his people under the Head of the Church, Jesu(s) Christ to affect his will according to the Lord's prayer, Psalm 2, 8 and 110 as well as Genesis 1:26. The focus of my administration of the Gospel is like unto my Lord's who said "I have come not but for the lost sheep of the house of Israel.."(Mathew 15:24), and so I have come to my European kinsman according to the flesh. It is my mission to show the Israel of God the Salvation which is taught by Scripture Alone and offered in all ages by Grace Alone through Faith Alone in the work of Christ Alone to the Glory of GOD Alone. As a modern day Puritan separatist it is my goal to purify the church of Christ with Faith heretofore stated. I am studying to show my self approved, if you have any questions just ask!
