|Section 5: Yehuveh’s Time System, Article 2
Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven
to divide the day from the night;
and let them be for signs, and for seasons,
and for days, and years.”
|he heavens declare the glory of Elohim; and the firmament sheweth His handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.” Psalms 19:1-3.|
| From creation, the heavens have been Yehuveh’s universal instructor. Adam and his descendents before the flood, Noah and his family after, Enoch in his righteousness, and Nimrod in his rebellion—they all had the same opportunity to learn of Yehuveh’s ways from the same heavenly display.
Lost Astronomical Communications
The sun and moon and stars were placed in the heavens for signs and communication as well as for calendars and clocks to measure days and years. We are only beginning to once again understand their role as clocks, but the whole matter of their role in communication—their role as signs—is almost entirely still lost to us. Asaph, David’s chief musician, in great distress asked Yehuveh a question: “O Elohim, why hast Thou cast us off for ever? why doth Thine anger smoke against the sheep of Thy pasture? Remember Thy congregation, which Thou hast purchased of old; the rod of Thine inheritance, which Thou hast redeemed; this mount Zion, wherein Thou hast dwelt.” Why are we cast off from Yehuveh? Why do we lack the powerful relationship with Yehuveh which Abraham, Isaac and Jacob enjoyed? Why aren’t we seeing miracles and mighty signs and wonders now, as they did? Asaph drew a very sad conclusion: “We see not our signs: there is no more any prophet: neither is there among us any that knoweth how long.” We lack the power because we lack the communication and instruction which should be ours. Psalms 74:1, 2, 9.
Have the signs ceased to appear in the heavens? No, of course not! Then why don’t we see them? Because we don’t even know what to look for! We no longer have astronomer-priests trained to understand them and explain them to us as they appear. We no longer understand such instruction from Yehuveh. “We see not our signs” because even if we do see them, we have no clue what they mean. Yehuveh states the sad reality: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to Me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy Elohim, I will also forget thy children.” Psalms 74:9; Hosea 4:6.
Because we and “our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit,” we have been taught to reject the very knowledge which would have protected us, enlightened us, and delivered us. Without this righteous instruction, we have been taught to fear and reject the very knowledge our forefathers cherished and honored—the very knowledge that preserved their lives and gave them great power! This is the story of our past, but it need not be the record of our future! Yehuveh is even now restoring this wisdom to us!
