Sighted Moon News Letter 5843-020 497
The 1st Day of the Fifth Month 5843 after creation

July 16 2007

Shalom Brethren,

The New Moon has been sighted in Israel. Sunday evening and Monday, will be the new moon day of the Fifth Month of the 5843 year after creation.

Bare in mind that on the 9th day of this very month, which this year will be the 24th of July, is the very day that Israel rebelled and brought an evil report back about the land of Canaan, having spied it out for 40 days. It was because of this sin that they spent the next 40 years in the wilderness, until that whole generation had died off. Only after that did Joshua lead them into Canaan.

You should also bare in mind that on this very day also, the ninth day of the fifth month, the Babylonians sacked the Temple of Solomon.

And Again on this very day the ninth day of the fifth month the Temple that Herod built was destroyed by the Romans, down to its very foundations. Not one stone left upon another.

It is in remembrance of this that the Jews fast on this day, the ninth day of the Fifth month. You can read more on this in Numbers 13 and 14. 2 Kings 24 and 25 and Josephus

Here is the New Moon report.
