Please keep in mind, that error always has logical flaws.
Ezekiel 46:1, 3 commands are contradictory with the continuous planetary week. As well as other passages.
So the planetary week cannot be, and indeed is Not the weekly cycle of Scripture.
Exodus 31:12-18 is like a “Rosetta Stone”; in that it shows us the meaning, and True pattern, that is, when you see the pattern of
“Sabbath, 6 work days, 7th day Sabbath”;
in Scripture, it is really;
“New Moon Day, 6 work days, then 7th day Sabbath“. Day 1, Days 2-7(6), Day 8, 7th day Sabbath. Then week 2 is 9-14(6), 15th 7th day Sabbath, then 16-21(6), then 22nd 7th day Sabbath, then 23-28(6), then 29th 7th day Sabbath, then New Moon Day again, or:
one day, then next day is The New Moon Day. The Holy of Yehovah.
5 Sabbaths a moon,
1st is The New Moon Day, 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th.
This passage (Exodus 31:12-18) shows us that the violation and penalties for work, on New Moon Day, or “Sabbath” as written, and work on the 7th day Sabbath, have two different penalties, verse 14, and verse 15.
Sabbath, in verse 14 (really it is The New Moon Day) work = cut off from his people, (put out of camp, and defiling = death, on this New Moon Day.
Defiling is: To not be happy, or to complain, to not keep this day as a Qodesh Holy Day, by common speech, as per Isaiah 58:13-New Moon Day Sabbath.
Illogic flow – 7th day Sabbath, 6 work days, 7th day Sabbath. As there was never a 7th day Sabbath before creation week, but there was a New Moon Day (Sabbath) before creation week, as the moon representing the Qodesh Spirit hovered over the face of the waters, when the foundations of the earth was laid. As the Levites pitched the Tabernacle on The New Moon Day.
Exo 40:2 On the first day of the first month shalt thou set up the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.
Num 1:51 And when the tabernacle setteth forward, the Levites shall take it down: and when the tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levites shall set it up: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.
Here we have the repairing of “changed the ordinance” of Isaiah 24:5
Isa 58:12 And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.
Prophets and Kings page 678
In the time of the end every divine institution is to be restored. The breach made in the law at the time the Sabbath was changed by man, is to be repaired.
Neh 10:31 And if the peopleH5971 of the landH776 bringH935 (H853) wareH4728 or anyH3605 victualsH7668 on the sabbathH7676 dayH3117 to sell,H4376 that we would notH3808 buyH3947 it ofH4480 them on the sabbath,H7676 or on the holyH6944 day:H3117 and that we would leaveH5203 (H853) the seventhH7637 year,H8141 and the exactionH4855 of everyH3605 debt.H3027
Verse 31 calls “the New Moon Day”, or substitute calling It “The Holy Day”
Neh 10:32 Also we madeH5975 ordinancesH4687 forH5921 us, to chargeH5414 ourselvesH5921 yearlyH8141 with the third partH7992 of a shekelH8255 for the serviceH5656 of the houseH1004 of our Elohim;H430
Neh 10:33 For the shewbread,H3899 H4635 and for the continualH8548 meat offering,H4503 and for the continualH8548 burnt offering,H5930 of the sabbaths,H7676 of the new moons,H2320 for the set feasts,H4150 and for the holyH6944 things, and for the sin offeringsH2403 to make an atonementH3722 forH5921 Israel,H3478 and for allH3605 the workH4399 of the houseH1004 of our Elohim.H430
(Nehemiah 10:33 shows us that the 4 lunar Sabbaths come from the lunation of the moon: “of the sabbaths,H7676 of the new moons,H2320”)
Esocus 20:8 Septuagint
Remember the day of the Sabbaths to sanctify it!
8 + μνήσθητι
Remember την the ημέραν day των of the σαββάτων Sabbaths αγιάζειν to sanctify αυτήν it!
The New Moon doesn’t come from the Sabbaths, but All Sabbaths come from Day 1 of the New Moon, and are timed from this day, every seventh day, the 8th being the 1st 7th day Sabbath. The New Moon Day, being a Sabbath of rejoicing on Yehovah, a day of rest from labor, never one of the 6 working days.
From the preponderance of evidence Isaiah 58:13 is “The New Moon Day”, when it is in the KJV “Sabbath”; for Nehemiah 10:31 calls it “The Holy Day”, separating It from “Sabbath”
Isa 58:13 If thou turn away thy foot from The New Moon Day, from doing thy pleasure on My Holy Day;
(Nehemiah 10:31, just above, shows “My Holy Day” is separate from “Sabbath” by the word “or”)
and call The New Moon Day a delight, the Holy of Yehovah, honourable; and shalt honour Him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:
Isa 58:14 Then shalt thou delight thyself on Yehovah; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for The Mouth of Yehovah hath spoken.
This proves that this law above was removed from the Torah, “for The Mouth of Yehovah hath spoken.” He only spoke His Law to Moses on Mt. Horeb. Isaiah was repeating a portion of Torah, that has since been deleted. (Conclusion from logical deduction)
whereas, verse 15, 7th day Sabbath work = death.
This same pattern is in the 4th commandment, Sabbath, 6 workdays, 7th day Sabbath, which is also the same, or rather, New Moon Day, 6 workdays, 7th day Sabbath.
This proves that the Scriptures have been altered, and in many places “New Moon” has been replaced with “Sabbath”
Isaiah 66:23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moonH2320 to another, and from one sabbathH7676 to another,H7676 shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith Yehovah.H3068
This reaffirms the pattern New Moon Day, six work days, then 7th day Sabbath, as well as Ezekiel 46:1-3
In this passage in verse 14, it is The New Moon Day Sabbath, no “work” and no “complaining”
In the happiness and Joy of The Father’s Presence, Satan began disaffection. On this New Moon Day we are to rejoice in love and fidelity to Our Heavenly Father. In Scripture He calls It “My Qodesh Day”
In verse 15, it is The 7th Day Sabbath, not any work, but a Sabbath of Rest, after working 6 days.

Here is the life-insurance policy for every soul that shall strive in the right way and upon the right principles. They shall never fall, but shall have their eternal life insurance papers in the sign given in Exodus 31:12-18, in the observance of Yehovah’s Sabbath. This means obedience to all His commandments, for the keeping of the Sabbath which Elohim has sanctified
and blessed at Creation, “is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations” “for ever,” “that I am Yehovah that doth sanctify you.” (verses 13, 17.)
Sign-[“oth”-plummet signal of The New Moon Day, first, then affirmation by the visible phases of the moon, coinciding with the numerical count from “The New Moon Day is Consecrated” and the trumpet blown, of the 4 weekly 7th day Sabbaths]
[ plummet “oth”-signal evidence of The New Moon Day, then the 4 lunar weekly cycles, with the 4 – 7th day Sabbaths, which fall on the 8th, half full-is a sign, 15th full moon-is a sign, 22nd half full-is a sign, 29th sliver-is a sign. His Name has 4 letters as seen in the Hebrew graphic at the top left corner of this page. These four letters are in sequence at the beginning of Leviticus 1:1 in Hebrew, with 7 letters between the letters of His Name, representing the 4 weekly cycles of His Calendar.
the 1st letter “vav” represents “New Moon Day”, the letter “vav” representing conjunction, this day has the monthly number assignment of “1”; And is never a part of any weekly cycle, but “gives birth” to the weekly cycles, as it is the beginning of times. YHVH is timeless, dwelling in eternity.
then “yod” the 1st letter of His Name, skip putting a number on the 4 letters of His Name,
then 7 letters; this is the first week, the week of “yod” which letter represents “The Father”.
then “he” the 2nd letter of His Name, then 7 letters; this is the week of “he” which letter represents the “mother”
then “vav” the 3rd letter of His Name, then 7 letters; this is the week of “vav” which letter represents “The Son”
then “he“, the 4th letter of His Name, then 7 letters; this is the week of “he” which represents “the daughter”
then “mem” representing The New Moon Day, [always the 1st of the month], hovering over the face of the waters, as the letter “mem” represents “waters”, a “pause” before the cycle repeats; this is The Seal of His Name, upon His 4, lunar weekly cycles, containing His True 7th day Sabbaths. Which proceed from the “mother” New Moon Day which stands outside of, and indeed “issuing” the 4 lunar weekly cycles, which The New Moon Day is “never” a part of. Because yod-he-vav-he dwells in eternity, above the dimension of time, we do not put a day-number to the Letters of His Name, before each sequence of 7 letters, of this calendar example, of His Name Stamped as a Seal, upon His Lunar based Calendar, in Leviticus 1:1, see https://biblehub.com/texts/leviticus/1-1.htm ]
To be sanctified, we have to keep His True Sabbaths, all of them including The New Moon Sabbath which He commands us not to do “Servile” work on, or working to make money for a living.
Ezekiel 20:12 Moreover also I gave them My sabbaths, to be a sign between Me and them, that they might know that I am Yehovah that sanctify them.
2Chronicles 2:4 Behold, I build an house to The Name of Yehovah my Elohim, to dedicate it to Him, and to burn before Him sweet incense, and for the continual shewbread, and for the burnt offerings morning and evening, on The Sabbaths, and on The New Moons, and on the Solemn Feasts of Yehovah our Elohim. This is an ordinance for ever to Israel.
Note: When you see “Feasts” in Scripture it is usually the word “Moed” or “Moedim” which means an appointment in time, such as a calendar date, or 7th day Sabbath or New Moon, or the yearly “Feasts” “Moeds”.
Hosea 2:11 I will also cause all her mirth to cease, her Feast Days, her New Moons, and her Sabbaths, and all her Solemn Feasts.
Isaiah 56:4 For thus saith Yehovah unto the eunuchs that keep My Sabbaths, and choose the things that please Me, and take hold of My Covenant;
One morning, several years ago, I prayed something like this:
Dear Heavenly Father, please show me Truth, that will save souls
And that morning He revealed to me “The Plummet” in Scripture, as the means for determining the declaration: “The New Moon is Consecrated” Which is what Exodus 20:8 tells us to do. “Mark even day, The New Moon, to Consecrate It.”(breach in The Law, Repaired)
The Stone which the builders, of the calendar, rejected, the same Stone or fixture cast down from the Sanctuary in Daniel 8:11, is become the chief cornerstone of His calendar, again.
Scripture, Isaiah, was wrapped up in close communion with The Most High. His language is like cryptic, wrapped up in glorious vision and rapture. High above our understanding, which understanding has been drilled, pressed in and riveted with falsehood, making us incapable of understanding Divine Writ. Even though Truth is logically plain.
We have to lay aside every preconceived opinion and come to the Scriptures, to learn what is Truth.
Let The Scripture of Truth, “drill” out those “rivets“, and let falsehood fall out of view.
One such “riveted” falsehood is this or similar, “The weekly cycle is an unbreakable cycle of 7’s from creation week, till now, never lost sight of, never lost track of” and “the Jews have always kept the correct Sabbath, so all we have to do is to look to the Jews”.
Both “theories” are not to be found in Scripture.
Isaiah 14:13 … I will place the mount of the appointed times in the recesses to hide from discovery.
Isaiah 28:17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.
This is why Isaiah 28, tells us we have to stop using milk, (preparatory to receiving the latter rain) which promotes so much mucous, protecting our parasites and worms, souring our food in our intestines, exhausting our liver’s pool of ATP, and with the resulting impure bloodstream, we can never begin to comprehend the Truths, in our Bibles. Daniel was a health reformer, “no pleasant food”, bio-energetic diet, low in things promoting the health of tapeworms, cooked food, highly fermentable food, and high in true health promoting foods, oxygenating. The bio-energetic program is a form of “fasting”. Thus avoiding hybridized foods without the seal of the numbers of His Name Yah, that absorb vast quantities of electrons from our metabolic pool of ATP, the largest reservoir the blood platelets, thus almost instantly decreasing the voltage activating our brains.
He physically prepared himself, to have a cerebrum more sensitive to the movings of the Spirit of Yehovah. Over time, the tapeworms strength diminishes, and poison material held in the colon, can pass out.
Job 20:14 Yet his meat in his bowels is turned, it is the gall of asps(H6620) within him.
1) a snake, venomous serpent
1a) perhaps the cobra, adder, or viper
Isaiah 27:1 In that day Yehovah with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.
Job 41:1 Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down?
The tapeworm trap This is “the hook” in the above verse “lettest down”.
This is what the beginning of Isaiah 28 is talking about, the drunkards of Ephraim.
Ellen White: The brain is the organ and instrument of the mind, and controls the whole body. In order for the other parts of the system to be healthy, the brain must be healthy. And in order for the brain to be healthy, the blood must be pure. If by correct habits of eating and drinking, the blood is kept pure, the brain will be properly nourished.

So purity, both physical and spiritual, promotes conditions helpful for communion with heaven.
Exo 31:13 Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily My sabbaths (Verily My New Moons) ye shall keep: for It(singular tense-The New Moon Day) is a signH226(plummet signal) between Me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am Yehovah that doth sanctify you.
The Sabbath and The Sign
The New Moon Day, and the 7th Day Sabbath, are both “Sabbaths” in a sense, as we are commanded to not work, 7th day, not any work, except what a man must eat. On The Qodesh New Moon Day, we are commanded not to do servile work, on the 7th New Moon Day. Exodus 31:13 tells us The New Moon Day is The Sign, that we are His people because we believe Genesis 1:14 that the two lights are the appointer of His worship times or days. Both the New Moon Day, and His 4 weekly 7th day Sabbaths, with the Seal of His Name upon them are “Signs“. The 4 weekly 7th day Sabbaths are also “Signs” because, the 8th day of the moon, the 7th day Sabbath is the right half of a moon, then the 15th day of the moon, the 7th day Sabbath, there is a full moon. Then 7 days later on the 22nd day of the moon, there is a left side half moon, then on the 29th day of the moon, there is a left side sliver, as a sign, signalling the near approach of The New Moon Day. Some visible before the east gate of the Temple, as you are facing west, in good weather, near sunset, especially the 4th quarter Sabbath, signalling the near approach of The New Moon Day, His Qodesh day, that is: “If thou turn away thy foot, from The New Moon Day, from doing thy pleasure on My Qodesh Day . . .”
This is the host of heaven the beast power cast down, His Divinely Appointed Lunar Calendar, the Calendar of The Heavens, of Genesis 1:14 …
It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days Yehovah made heaven and earth, and on the seventh He rested and was refreshed. (and on the 4th day of creation week, He appointed the sun and the moon, as His Calendar) This is proof, that Saturday is not the Sabbath of creation week. Because there is no synchronicity of Saturday with the moon, The Divine Appointer of days.
Yehovah’s people will believe “The Sign” that He has given, that we are His people.
To be His people we have to believe His Word, above satan’s word of falsehood.
Yehovah’s Word in Genesis 1:14 tells us that the sun and moon are for scheduling appointments.
Satan’s false word, tells us we no longer need the moon for scheduling appointments.
Satan has changed Yehovah’s Words in the billions of Bibles in publication today.
Yehovah’s people will believe Yehovah. Satan’s people will believe him.
His Name and the Sabbath Truth in this end of time, we are living in will divide into two camp’s, those who believe Yehovah, and His Truth, as taught in the Scriptures, from those who believe satan’s lies that are in circulation that are not in the Scriptures.
Isa 28:15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
Isa 28:16 Therefore thus saith Yehovah Elohim, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
Isa 28:17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.
If we keep His “True” moedim, He will make us qodesh, His people, which as we have fallen by sin, only His Supernatural Power, can ever make us qodesh (holy).
In Isaiah He tells us that the correct method to determine His True Moedim, is by The Plummet, hung from a high point, that magnifies the gravitational movement, showing the moment of conjunction, over a chart below it.
This is why He tells us “Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet:”
Amo 4:2 Yehovah Elohim hath sworn by His Holiness, that, lo, the days shall come upon you, that He will take you away with hooks, and your posterity with fishhooks.
The Great Controversy
Snares of Satan
While Elohim has given ample evidence for faith, He will
never remove all excuse for unbelief. All who look for hooks
to hang their doubts upon will find them. And those who
refuse to accept and obey Elohim’s Word until every objection
has been removed, and there is no longer an opportunity for
doubt, will never come to The Light.
The last great conflict is over His Sabbaths, as Ellen White tells us.
The New Moon Day is “The Sabbath” or “Ha Shabat”, but not of rest, but of rejoicing in Elohim after resting on the previous day, or sometimes two days before, on the 4th quarter 7th day Shabat, which is always one or two days before The New Moon Day.
It has always been a “Worship” Day, just as much as the 7th Day Sabbath.
Isaiah 66:23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moonH2320 to another, and from one sabbathH7676 to another,H7676 shall all flesh come to worship before Me, saith Yehovah.H3068
Exodus 31:14 below, the Sabbath penalty is different from the Sabbath penalty in verse 15. Verse 14 penalty for work is “cut off from his people”, which means separation or “put out of the camp”, it does not mean “death”.
The Scriptures have been “adjusted” to allow the deception of the continuous planetary weekly cycle.
Verse 14 “Sabbath” is really “The New Moon Day”, as no number assignment is given as is the case for the six working days and the 7th day Sabbath in verse 15.
Verse 15 penalty for work is death, which verse calls it the 7th day Sabbath.
This shows that we have in the past, mistaken the pattern to be 7th-6days-7th in the Sabbath command. This is mistaken because when you see in Scripture, Sabbath 6 days then 7th day Sabbath, the 1st Sabbath mentioned without the Number assignment of 7th, the 1st is always The New Moon Sabbath.
But now it is apparent the pattern is: New Moon Day-6days-7th of week, which 7th day Sabbath is the 8th day of the moon at the beginning of the moon, of the Biblical month. There are only four continuous 7 day weekly cycles per moon, each week in honor of the four letters of His Great Name.
4 letters of His Great Name, and 4 weeks per lunar cycle, or lunation.
It is not a continuous unbreakable cycle of 7’s as we have been taught. That doctrine cannot be discovered in the Bible.
Ezekiel 46:1-3 shows us the New Moon Day, the east gate is open, but closed on the 6 working days. On the non Biblical planetary week the New Moon Day often falls on work days. The east gate can only be in one of two conditions, open or shut. So we see with the planetary week, the commands can conflict, as say, when The Qodesh New Moon Day, falls on a Tuesday, one of the six work days. So then on that Tuesday, should the gate be open or shut? But in the Biblical calendar, the New Moon Day stands alone, apart, above, and indeed issuing the weekly cycle, beginning the following day.
The Scriptures clearly teach the doctrine that The New Moon Day, is never a day of the weekly cycle.
The New Moon day can never be a day of the week, any more than a mother can be a sibling to her children, because she begot them. So The Qodesh New Moon Day is a worship day, and births the weekly cycle, beginning the next day as is clearly taught in the Scriptures.
The March around Jericho-A march lasting 7 days, which would breach the “continuous cycle of 7’s theory, unbreakable from creation week until now”. They did not march on the Biblical 7th day Sabbath. I remember wondering about that in Sabbath school class as a child.
Yehoshua as the captain of Yehovah’s Host, appeared to Joshua, Hebrew for Joshua is Yehoshua, He appeared unto him on The New Moon Day as written in the book of Jashur 88:14 telling him,
“And it was in the second month, on the first day of the month, that Yehovah said to Joshua, Rise up, behold I have given Jericho into thy hand with all the people thereof; and all your fighting men shall go round he city, once each day, thus shal you do for six days.“
This shows us that the New Moon Day stands outside of the weekly cycle, for they marched 7 continuous days and rested on the 8th day, which is the 7th day of the 1st lunar weekly cycle.
With the false planatary continuous week, they would have had to march on the 7th day Sabbath of rest.
Joshua 10:13 And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.
Joshua 6:3 And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days.
Joshua 6:4 And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams’ horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets.
Exo 31:12 And Yehovah spake unto Moses, saying,
Exo 31:13 Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths (Verily My New Moon Day) ye shall keep: for it is a signH226(plummet signal) between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am Yehovah that doth sanctify you.
In the verse below, “the sabbath” is not associated with any day of the weekly cycle, as is the case in verse 15, all days listed in this verse are a part of the weekly cycle. But not so in verse 14.
Exo 31:14 Ye shall keep the sabbath(The New Moon Day) therefore; for It is holy unto you: every one that defileth It shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.
Death, and being “put out of the camp” are very different penalties. Death is final, while “put out of the camp” is life with punishment. Sadness=death, work=put out of the camp. This is The New Moon Day, and not the 7th day Sabbath in verse 15.
The man of sin, took out of this verse 14, “The New Moon”, and replaced it with “The Sabbath”.
An argument, The New Moon Day is a sign or “oth” or “signal”.
The continuous 7 day cycle irrespective of the moon, has no sign or signal in the heavens to cue you in to the start of that weekly cycle.
Gen 1:14 And ElohimH430 said,H559 Let there beH1961 lightsH3974 in the firmamentH7549 of the heavenH8064 to divideH914 H996 the dayH3117 fromH996 the night;H3915 and let them beH1961 for signs,H226 and for moeds,H4150 and for days,H3117 and years:H8141
Probably from H225 (in the sense of appearing); a signal (literally or figuratively), as a flag, beacon, monument, omen, prodigy, evidence, etc.: – mark, miracle, (en-) sign, token.

Zechariah 4:10 For who hath despised The Day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of Yehovah, which run to and fro through the whole earth.
Conjunction is a “sign” or “signal” swinging the pendum, which is the fixture of the sanctuary, hanging from the church steeple or similar high point from which to magnify the movement of the pendulum over a chart below it, indicating the “moment” of conjunction, signaling New Moon Day, in inclement weather. The Pendulum was “cast down” in Daniel 8:11, the word “place“H4349 of His Sanctuary is actually the word “fixture” of His Sanctuary, was cast down, as the beast power replaced the lunar calendar weeks with the planetary weeks, and pagan months. And the word “daily” refers to the New Moon Day, and her 4 lunar weekly cycles.
From H3559; properly a fixture, that is, a basis; generally a place, especially as an abode: – foundation, habitation, (dwelling-, settled) place.

Deuteronomy 33:14 And for the precious fruits brought forth by the sun, and for the precious things put forth by the moon,
Amos 8:5 Saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit?
Now the proper translation with arguments:
Ye shall keep The New Moon Day therefore; for It is qodesh unto you: every one that defileth It shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.
7-6-7 is out of order, if verse 14 were the 7th, which it is not. That puts the cart in front of the ox.
New Moon Day, then 6 work days, then 7th day Sabbath, is progressive, and not out of order.
Argument for this alteration: The penalty for transgressing the New Moon Day, by mourning and complaining, is doing what satan did in the court above, he created disaffection. He was in the very direct and wonderful presence of The Father, of Whom it is written “In Thy Presence is fulness of joy, at Thy Right Hand, there are pleasures forevermore.” That penalty is death.
Nehemiah spoke to not mourn, (it was the New Moon Day), for this day is qodesh.
This Day Is Holy
Nehemiah 8:9 And Nehemiah, which is the Tirshatha, and Ezra the priest the scribe, and the Levites that taught the people, said unto all the people, This day is holy unto Yehovah your Elohim; mourn not, nor weep. For all the people wept, when they heard the words of the law.
But the penalty for defiling The New Moon Day, the happy Day, by not being happy and rejoicing, is death. Ellen White said “Pain cannot exist in the atmosphere of heaven”.
Verse 14 above says that the penalty for doing any work on this Day, is not death, like it is for work on the 7th day, in verse 15, but to be separated from his people. Heavy work on the day of Rejoicing, might make you very tired and weary, making you less inclined to “rejoice in Yehovah alway”, giving you less time to think upon Yehovah’s Greatness, and Goodness, while you are gasping for breath bearing heavy burdens, or mental work detracting your thoughts from meditation upon His Greatness and Goodness.
Let’s look at the Hebrew word for “defileth” which carries the death penalty.
A primitive root (compare H2470); properly to bore, that is, (by implication) to wound, to dissolve; figuratively to profane (a person, place or thing), to break (one’s word), to begin (as if by an opening-wedge); denominatively (from H2485) to play (the flute): – begin (X men began), defile, X break, defile, X eat (as common things), X first, X gather the grape thereof, X take inheritance, pipe, player on instruments, pollute, (cast as) profane (self), prostitute, slay (slain), sorrow, stain, wound.

So we see in this commandment, that there are two differing actions “defiling” and “work” with two different penalties.
The penalty for work is to be put out of the camp
The penalty for “defileth”, or not rejoicing on Yehovah, but choosing to mourn, or be sad, in His Presence, is death.
The New Moon Day is before the 1st week, as she, The New Moon Day, issues forth 4 weekly cycles, with 4 weekly 7th days. The sun is as a strong man to run a race through the circuit of the heavens.
And another argument is this, the 7th day Sabbath penalty for work is death, but verse 14, a Day that is not the 7th day, nor any day of the week, the penalty for work is not death, but to be put out of the camp.
Verse 14 is speaking of another Day than the 7th, which follows after the 6 working days, in verse 15.
If verse 14 is the 7th day sabbath, isn’t that putting the cart in front of the horse, being that the number 7 follows after the 6 working days? The proper order is 1st or beginning, of month, then 1-6, then 7th day rest, after becoming weary from the 6 working days.
In verse 15, The Sabbath mentioned there is associated with the 7th day of the week, The Sabbath mentioned in verse 14 is not associated with any day of the week, because The New Moon Day does not belong to any day of the weekly cycle, because it issues forth the weekly cycle, like giving birth, it is apart, outside of the weekly cycle, as a mother can never become one of her daughter’s sibling’s.
New Moon Day is the 1st day of the Biblical Month. Ezekiel 46:1-3 shows us that it cannot belong to any day of the weekly cycle which is also defined what to do, by the implication of the east gate being open or closed. That gate cannot be open while it is closed, neither can it be closed when it is open.
Exo 31:15 Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to Yehovah: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.
Exo 31:16 Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.
Exo 31:17 It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days Yehovah made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.
The Qodesh Spirit and the Moon hovered over the face of the waters, before the six working days of creation began. The New Moon Day is a “sign” or “oth” or “signal”, the pendulum is swung by the combined gravitational pull of the moon and sun together or in close proximity.
Exo 31:18 And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of Elohim.
