(False Doctrine no.1) When is the start of a new day?

There are two false doctrines that have surfaced and has taken off very lately. These false doctrines say that the start of a new day according to Scripture is at sunrise, and that a day is only 12 hours long. The other false doctrine is that the weekly Seventh Day Sabbath is determined by the moon phases. If one is not constantly studying the Torah of YHWH, you will fall for such stupid man made doctrines.

I will be discussing these two separately as there is just too much information to put into one posting.

To say that a new day starts at sunrise instead of sundown is clearly saying that Y’hoshua the Mashiyach and Shaul are liars! Let me explain why:

Y’hoshua spoke the following: BUT CONCERNING THAT DAY AND THE HOUR NO ONE KNOWS, not even the messengers of the heavens, but My Father only” (Mat 24:36)

Paul also reveals the following: “For you yourselves know very well that The Day Of יהוה (YHWH) Comes As A Thief In The Night” (1 Thess 5:2)

Now both these statements are Hebrew idioms referring to a specific day! If you are not familiar with the Hebrew language and its idioms, you will not understand what was really being said and then you will fall for false doctrines, like the start of the new day at sunrise instead of the Scriptural sundown!

You see, both those statements refer to Yom Teruah. You see, Yom Teruah is a special Sabbath, so you are not allowed to make food on the day (Wayyiqra/Leviticus 23:24-25). One has to have your food prepared before, just like a normal weekly Sabbath.

There is however one very big difference. Yom Teruah is the only Appointed Time of YHWH to begin on the first day of a month. This is why it is called “a thief in the night” because you have to be prepared for it, yet don’t know the exact day that it is going to be, as we rely on the sighting of the 7th New Moon (another proof that the weekly Sabbath is not determined by the moon phase!).

Now here is the kick: It is “the thief in the night” as when we see the New Moon, it is too late to prepare any food as it indicates the START of Yom Teruah. When is the New Moon sighting? AT SUNDOWN OF COURSE!!! This is absolute proof that even the Mashiyach Y’hoshua and Shaul taught that the start of the New calendar date is at sundown!!!

Now if the start of the new calendar date was at sunrise, then Y’hoshua would NEVER have said what he said as Yom Teruah would not have been called “a thief in the night” or referred to as “concerning the day or the hour, no one knows” because if the New Moon was sighted, one would have had at least 12 hours until sunrise to prepare food for the day! This is preposterous!

YHWH also gave us another Appointed Time (Yom Kippur) to show us that a new day starts at sundown: “It is a Sabbath of rest to you, and you shall afflict your beings. On the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you observe your Sabbath(Lev 23:32).

Let us look at a few more examples that are concrete proof that the start of a new day is at sundown:

 “Guard the month of Aviv, and perform the Passover to יהוה (YHWH) your Elohim, for in the month of Aviv יהוה (YHWH) your Elohim brought you out of Mitsrayim by night.
“And you shall slaughter the Passover to יהוה (YHWH) your Elohim, from the flock and the herd, in the place where יהוה (YHWH) chooses to put His Name.
“Eat no leavened bread with it. For seven days you eat unleavened bread with it, bread of affliction, because you came out of the land of Mitsrayim in haste – so that you remember the day in which you came out of the land of Mitsrayim, all the days of your life.
“And no leaven should be seen with you in all your border for seven days, neither should any of the meat which you slaughter in the evening on the first day stay all night until morning” (Deut 16:1-4)

Notice that the Passover lamb is eaten in the evening of the 14th day of Aviv and that none of its meat should last until the morning. Clearly, this indicates that the day starts at sundown, also that the evening is part of the day! The next evening, the Israelites left Mitsrayim, which is the beginning of the 15th day of Aviv, This day is known as the first day of Matzot (Festival of unleavened bread).

Here is another example:

Therefore, since it was the Preparation Day, that the bodies should not remain on the stake on the Sabbath – for that Sabbath was a high one – the Yehuḏim asked Pilate to have their legs broken, and that they be taken away” (John 19:31)

Yehoshua was put on the torture stake during the day time, while the sun was shining. Why did the Yehudim want to have their legs broken? Because it was the day before the 'High Sabbath' and that the bodies should not remain on the stake on the Sabbath. Now they broke their legs so that they could die quicker, before sunset, as that is when the 'High Sabbath' begins! If the 'High Sabbath' only started at sunrise, then there would be no need to break their legs, as they would have had all night to die, which is more than enough time!

So as you can see, Sundown is the Start of the new calendar date according to Yehoshua Mashiyach, Son of YHWH and Father YHWH Himself!!!


  1. First of all, the phrase "thief in the night" is ALSO an idiom. It means unexpectedly.

    Secondly, evening is not sunset. Evening is in the afternoon. The 14th starts at sunrise. That afternoon (between the two evenings), still the 14th, the lamb was slaughtered. That night, still the 14th, the meal was eaten. The next morning, now the 15th, starts the Feast of Unleaveneds.

  2. Gordie... If you go and look at Hewbrew idioms you will find that "thief in the night" always points to one day and to that specific moon sighting. when is it sighted? just before darkness.

    There is no evidence that evening is the afternoon. it is just absurd to think so.

    Evening is always after sunset, and we can see that from the passage in John 19:31.

    You should stop listening to false teachers who are teaching you this non sense, and rather go and study the Scriptures and Hebrew thought.
