Product DescriptionOf all of the Biblical holidays, the new moon is perhaps the most overlooked or forgotten. Compared to the other feast days, the new moon is rarely mentioned in the Bible. In those few references, even less instruction is given. The Bible seems to leave this celebration in obscurity. However, when the new moon does make its appearance in the Scriptures, the context clearly alludes to this festival’s great significance. It is almost as if the moon phases in and out of the Biblical text just like it does in our night sky. The moon’s cycle of being concealed and then revealed is an indicator of spiritual truth.
The moon’s constant phases remind us that even in our failings, when our light decreases, there is always hope for renewal. The moon also teaches about the reality of (spiritual) darkness and the need for the (spiritual) light of Messiah. Perhaps this is one reason that Yeshua revealed to Nicodemus the need to be born again at nighttime. The moon would have been visible in the evening sky as the two spoke about heavenly things. While it’s possible that Nicodemus may have wanted to question the Master under the cover of darkness, Yeshua allowed their physical surroundings to teach spiritual truth: “You must be born again.”
The primary purpose of this BEKY Book is to give the reader a better understanding of how to celebrate the new moon. It is NOT a book about proper crescent moon sightings or calendar calculations. Instead, this book conveys the excitement and the profound joy that comes from meeting the Creator at one of His often forgotten festivals. Additionally, this book will help you to prepare and organize a delightful setting to celebrate each new month and dedicate it to the Creator.
