Without movement, time cannot be measured. The modern calendar is a solar calendar, which bases its days and years exclusively upon the sun. On the modern calendar, weeks and months are not based on anything in nature. They are completely arbitrary. This is different from the luni-solar calendar established by Yahuwah at the creation of the world.
The calendar of creation is based entirely on nature. From its years, to months, from weeks, to days, it is all based on movement. The word “month” was originally “moonth” and comes from the word moon. In ancient times, months were always based on the movement of the moon. Weeks, in turn, were divisions of the month, or lunation. “[T]he Hebrew Sabbathon … was celebrated at intervals of seven days, corresponding with changes in the moon’s phases...”2 The fact that the months and weeks of the Biblical calendar are also based on movement in nature creates the biggest difference between Yahuwah’s luni-solar calendar and the pagan/papal solar calendar in use today. It also creates the most confusion.
Both calendars keep track of how much time it takes for the earth to complete one revolution around the sun (a year). Both break that year into smaller, more manageable segments. But there, the similarity ends. The modern calendar has months ranging in length from 28 days to 31 days. The months are not tied to anything in nature. Consequently, the week cycles continuously and without interruption from one month, to the next; from one year, to the next.
