Pentecost PROVES Lunar Sabbath

The count to Pentecost has been a hotly contested debate over the years. The Pharisees reckoned the count one way and the Sadducees reckoned the count another way. But oddly enough, on Pentecost in Acts 2, they were all together in one accord on the same day. There was no debate over the count to Pentecost. They all agreed it was on that day. How could this happen? And does this give us incite on the true way to reckon the Sabbath day? Yes it does. Here is how...

"And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete: Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days;" Lev. 23:15-16

This is the verse that tells us how to count to Pentecost. It is not my intention to discuss the full count here on this page, but to discuss the day that the count begins. The Pharisees say that "from the morrow after the sabbath" means the day after the 1st day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread on the 15th of the month. So the count would always begin on the 16th of the month. The Sadducees say that "from the morrow after the sabbath" means the day after the weekly Sabbath. And many falsely assume this means the day after Saturday, which is Sunday. Yet in Acts 2 they were "all together in one place" without disagreement on the day or count of Pentecost. How does one explain this? After all, if they really disagreed on the count to Pentecost, they wouldn't have all just willingly showed up on the same day without a hotly contested debate.

The only way to make sense of this is through a lunar Sabbath. While the Pharisees and Sadducees counted it differently, actually they didn't. That is if the weekly Sabbath and the 1st Day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread fall on the same day every year. And that is exactly the case in God's calendar. How that works will be discussed on another page. But the fact that they fall on the same day is why this day is called a High Day Sabbath. On the Roman Calendar, the weekly Sabbath rarely falls on the same day as the 1st day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. So there was no controversy back in the early 1st century
. The controversy over the count to Pentecost didn't begin until the Roman calendar was thrown into the mix. When you try to make sense of scripture through the Roman calendar, it doesn't work because the Bible has never recognized or spoken in the context of the Roman calendar. Yet that is what the majority of the Christian world does all the time. They try to make sense of scripture with lunar solar dates and times through the eyes of the Roman calendar. This is a receipt for confusion and deception. So this is just one of multiple ways in proving the lunar Sabbath.
