Calendar Chronicles

...keep thy solemn feasts...

Nahum 1:15

Truth On The Web Ministries has undertaken some serious studies of the calendar and this page provides links to the research papers from those efforts. We believe what God tells us through His Word, and from there we walk by faith. Our understanding of Scripture indicates that months are to be determined by New Moon (visible crescent) sightings confirmed by two or three witnesses.  The Bible also declares the first month of the year to be at a time when the Middle East area barley crop is in a stage called "abib."  Many different ideas of the calendar abound in the various organs of the Church of God. It is our hope that each individual take it to God in prayer and Bible study, and follow as the spirit of God convicts.  Truth On The Web Ministries does not condemn anyone keeping the holydays according to the Calculated Rabbinical Calendar (CRC), or other schedule, or who is using any different determination of what constitutes a 'new moon'---as long as each person follows his course by conviction of faith. The Body of Christ cannot be spiritually divided by such physical things, but we encourage everybody to undertake a study of the calendar strictly from the Holy Scriptures and through prayer and fasting for truth to be revealed.

"These are the Feasts of the Eternal, even sacred assemblies, which you shall proclaim in their appointed times."(Leviticus 23:4)
