March 20, 2017 is a date that most of us recognize as symbolic of changing seasons.  In 2017 this Vernal Equinox happens on Monday Mar 20, 2017.    As we welcome spring, people south of the equator are actually gearing up for the cooler temperatures of autumn. What Happens at the Equinox?
Far from being an arbitrary indicator of the changing seasons, March 21 (March 20 in some years and March 19th in some years) is significant for astronomical reasons.  On Mar 20, 2017 the Sun will cross directly over the Earth's equator. This moment is known as the vernal equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. For the Southern Hemisphere, this is the moment of the autumnal equinox.
 
Equinox Means "Equal Night"   Translated literally, equinox means "equal night." Because the sun is positioned above the equator, day and night are about equal in length all over the world during the equinoxes. A second equinox occurs each year on Approximately September 21;  In 2017 this will be on Sept 22nd  2017.  (The Roman Calendar declairs this the 1st day of Fall)  This date will mark the autumnal equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and the vernal equinox in the Southern (vernal denotes "spring").   Fall Holy Days are calculated from the New Moons, not necessarily the Equinox's, but the Equinoxes tell the time of the year.  Holy days are counted from new moons, not equinoxes,

In order to have the Passover and Equinox in the first month, and the spring green starting in March, I have picked New Moon on  Phase of the Moon on March 27, 2017: New Moon at 8:57 p.m. (local daylight time) This day probably reflects the day of the rebirth of the Moon.  The true invisible conjunction. This makes Mar 28th the first day of the First Month as it is just after sundown on the 27th..   This is after the equinox as the biblical 1st day of the year.  Since that is the mathimatical calculation of the Spring  new moon.   That is also the Scientific calculation of the new moon by the US Naval Observatory.  I do not use the Jewish traditional reasoning as my standard.   I looked at all the discussion regarding having the 1st day of the year before or after the Equinox and with all the angles of suggested and quoted scriptures and finally think that the 1st day can possibly be before the equinox, so Passover can be in the first month.   This year it is after the Equinox.

Dates of Moon Phases in 2017 Year

Below you can find dates and hours of all Moon Phases in 2017 Year. All dates and times are given both in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) and America/Denver Time Zone time. Times are shown in Daylight Savings Time when necessary and in Standard Time in the other cases.  But we went to latitude and longitude of Wheatland, WY for our exact calculation.

Biblical Holy Day Calendar for 2017 (Based on the Moon)  
The Phase of the Moon on March 27, 2017: New Moon at 8:57 p.m. (local daylight time)  The first new moon is after the Equinox in 2017. 

The following information is provided for Wheatland, Platte County, Wyoming (longitude W105.0, latitude N42.1):                    

    New Moon on  Phase of the Moon on March 27, 2017: New Moon at 8:57 p.m. (local daylight time) This day probably reflects the day of the rebirth of the Moon.  The true invisible conjunction. This makes Mar 28th the first day of the First Month as it is just after sundown on the 27th.
 

Passover April 10th, 2017   (Starts evening before On Apr 9th. Sunday evening)
Counting to Abib 14.  Abib 14 starts when the sun goes down.

    The commanded Passover Meal is after sundown (Sunday night) on the beginning of Abib 14.  (Of April 10th 2017) Passover Day on the April 10th 2017
    The commanded service of taking the bread, wine and foot washing comes after the main (regular) meal.  This is
    Christ's Passover meal also.  We will also observe that Special Night to be Much Observed (Exo. 12.42), not
   Abib 15 as the traditional doctrine believes.  (see Passover is the Feast)  He had to be off the cross before the Jewish Passover, remember.

The First Day of Unleavened Bread starts late afternoon on April 9th, 2017 at the going down of the sun.  Making that the Passover day and 1st Day of UB  April 10th, that evening before would be Christ's Passover Ceremony.  April 16, 2017  would be the last day of UB or the 21th day of the 1st month. This then matches the OT with the NT.
       The First Holy Day will  continue all through the 1st day. (Which is the 14th day of Abib).  The Unleavened Bread will last for only 7 days which is called the Feast of the Passover.   (See this explanation) Not 8 days as one scripture indicates, which is conflict with all of the rest.

         The Seventh day of the Feast of the Passover (Unleavened Bread) is on April 16th, (Sunday)2017
            This last (7th) day coincides with Abib 20. and ends the 7-- 24 hr periods at about 7:00 in the
            evening of Apr 16th . (Or as is stated "until" (the start) of the 21st day of Abib..."April 17th") (Not inclusive of the 21st day of Abib which would make the Days of UB 8 days.)
 

     April 16th is the Feast of First of the First Fruits   (Sunday) or:
       
 Waive Sheaf Day (Sunday) Apr 16, 2017  (Lev 23:9-14  
          Go to the weekly Sabbath during the week of UB.  
          Then morning after the Sabbath.  It is Waive Sheaf  Sunday.
 In 2017 this day coinsides with the last day of UB or 7th day. I can't move it back a week because it would be the day before the Passover.  Coincidentally this coinsides with Easter, but not every year.     
("...on the day after the sabbath the priest shall wave it.)                    Is that in the Bible?  Is it a Holy Day?   Is it to be kept forever?

The Jews would calculate the Passover being on April 3, based on 2% illumination and their crescent viseability.  But since the 3rd is on a Friday and it would interrupt the day of preparation, they postpone the Holy Day to the 4th, so that no one has a hardship on a preparation day.  We do not accept this circular reasoning.  April 2, Thurs is the Holy Day, not April 3rd, Friday--then postponed to April 4th Sat. like the Jews Keep.

 

   Feast of Weeks    June 5, 2017 (Monday)   (Pentecost) Article 1Article 2,  An old Pastor Understood this.
     Article 3   
Lev 23:15  'And you shall count for yourselves from the day after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering: seven Sabbaths shall be completed.  Lev 23:15  'And you shall count for yourselves from the day after the Sabbath, (In other words, the day after the Sabbath is Sunday) from (Sunday) the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering: (the day after Sunday is day one) seven Sabbaths shall be completed.
 What is the day after the Wave sheaf Sunday?  Simply that is Monday and Monday is Day (1) one in our count to 50.  Pentecost means count 50, not 49.
 

            Feast of Trumpets      Closest Primary Moon Phase: New Moon on September 19, 2017 at 11:30 p.m. (local daylight time).   So the Feast of Trumpets could be on September 20th, 2017 because it is about 6 hours after sundown on the 19th.  So the Truest New Moon day is Wed. Sept, 20, 2017. but it still is invisible on into the 21st.  So to make the FOTab come out on a full moon looking at the month/moon both ways, I conceed that Sept 21, 2017 would make the month come out more accurate. I've weighed the lengths of the month before and after the fall 7th month new moon, and conceed it may need to be advanced to the 21st.  I'm still a bit uncomfortable with advancing it to the "full moon", or the full 15th day after the new moon. I know a moon take approx 29 days, or 14 1/2 days from full to new.  Sometimes the calculation may need advanced for FOTab as the First Day of FOTab is on the 15th day.  I can easily be corrected and more evidence can be submitted to back me up a day.  If anyone knows of a scripture that indicates the First Day of the Feast of Tabernacles MUST be on a full moon, please let the webmaster know.
Now I don't live in Jerusalem, so I will just have to use Wyoming Time to Calculate a New Moon here. So I conceed to Sept 21, 2017 as the magical memorial day of blowing of Trumpets.

Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.  Lev 23:24

             Closest Primary Moon Phase: New Moon on September 19, 2017 at 11:30 p.m. (local daylight time) starts the correct new moon.. Wyoming Mountain Daylight Time.  Since it is so late on Tuesday that sundown is eminent so that Factually Makes Sept 20, 2016. the 1st day of the 7th month.  When you look at 15 days later to Make a full moon on the day before the Feast of Tabernacles.  because of the helf days involved here it probably was intended and it works out that way most years. It could be on the 20th or 21st.  So to make the FOTab come out on a full moon looking at the month/moon both ways, I conceed that Sept 21, 2017 would make the month come out more accurate.  and the true full moon is on Sept 21, 2017.
           
When you go back to the new moon on this month and the next month, and take the half way point to make the full moon. It is not easy to see why they have advanced the FOT one full day.  The rabinnical calculation only advances one extra day it so they can postpone it so nothing lands on a friday or sunday.  This is not the case this year 2017.  And pray tell, why would God ever allow a holy day on a Friday? (sic)  I'm trying to stay away from rabinnical calculation as it usually so biased for tradition and not from God.


           
           Day of Atonement = Sept 30, 2017 (Lev. 23:27) Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement:  Sept 30 is the 10th day after the new moon in the 7th Month.  Probably not good Jewish reasoning, but Great Biblical reasoning.  I have noticed that sometimes these days don't match "The Inspired Pocket Calendar".  (Pun Intended).

 

            Feast of Tabernacles (7 day Feast of TabernaclesOctober 5, 2017  Lev 23:34 The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD.

            Phase of the Moon on Closest Primary Moon Phase: Full Moon on October 5, 2017 at 12:40 p.m. (local daylight time) Mountain Daylight Time  
         
             First Day of the Feast of Tabernacles is on  October 5, 2017   the Full moon and the 1st day of FOT is about the same exact time.   But the Feast of Tabernacles is on the 15th day of the 7th month.   The 1st day of the Feast of Tabernacles  would start On   October 5, 2017   (The 15th day of the 7th Month)  (But the count starts on the New Moon and is not proved by the Full moon.)

Many of the COG churches and Jewish recogning use the Oct 17th as the first day of  the FOT.  That neither fits the plan for an invisible conjunction new moon or a look-see at the correct full moon for those that like to see full moons for the FOT.  They will have only missed it by 2 days.

            Last Great Day  =  October 12, 2017.

This is all calculated in MST and not Jerusalem Time.  As we do not observe the Sabbath based on Jerusalem time but on MST or sundown to sundown in the area of which we live.

The Holy Day arrangement for the year is determined by rules (traditions of men) that aim to prevent Yom Kippur (Atonement) from occurring either before or after the Sabbath. Thus making the "Day of Preparation" (Fri.) or the Preparation for the weekly Sabbath, more important than the High Day.
