New Moon report 5th month

Joseph F. Dumond

Isa 6:9-12 And He said, Go, and tell this people, You hear indeed, but do not understand; and seeing you see, but do not know. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn back, and be healed. Then I said, Lord, how long? And He answered, Until the cities are wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land laid waste, a desolation, and until Jehovah has moved men far away, and the desolation in the midst of the land is great.

Sighted Moon News Letter 5843-020

The 1st Day of the Fifth Month 5843 after creation

July 16 2007

Shalom Brethren,

New Moon Report

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.
