The Repairer of the Breach

Why sight the moon from Jerusalem?


It seems that with each new subject the Father reveals to us, along comes more confusion and opinions to sort through, and this subject of when and where to sight the new moon is no different.  We went around and around on the matter for two years.  Should we learn to spot the moon here where we live or should we go with the sighting from the land of Israel?
My question to all of us is:  Where is home?  Do we consider ourselves separate from Judah and therefore not a part of Yah's family?  Do we see the land we now live in as the Promised Land?  Many of us see who we are in YHWH.  We see that we are the wild branch grafted in with the cultured branch and therefore connected to the Tree and Root of our Mashiach and YHWH.  That means that where the Root is so is the Tree and where the Tree is so are the branches!


Where is the Root?


Lev 25:2  Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath unto Yahweh.
Lev 25:23  The land shall not be sold forever: for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.
Num 15:2  Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come into the land of your habitations, which I give unto you,
Num 15:18  Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land whither I bring you,
 Num 20:12  And Yahweh spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed me not, to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them.
Num 27:12  And Yahweh said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mount Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel.

Num 34:2  Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land of Canaan; this is the land that shall fall unto you for an inheritance, even the land of Canaan with the coasts thereof:
Num 35:34  Defile not therefore the land which ye shall inhabit, wherein I dwell: for I Yahweh dwell among the children of Israel.
Deu 4:1  Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which Yahweh Elohim of your fathers giveth you.
 Deu 31:7  And Moses called unto Joshua, and said unto him in the sight of all Israel, Be strong and of a good courage: for thou must go with this people unto the land which Yahweh hath sworn unto their fathers to give them; and thou shalt cause them to inherit it.
 Deu 31:23  And he gave Joshua the son of Nun a charge, and said, Be strong and of a good courage: for thou shalt bring the children of Israel into the land which I sware unto them: and I will be with thee.
Deu 32:49  Get thee up into this mountain Abarim, unto mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab, that is over against Jericho; and behold the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel for a possession:
Jos 1:2  Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel.
Isa 2:3  And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh, to the house of the Elohim of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem.
Mic 4:1  But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of Yahweh shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.
Mic 4:2  And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh, and to the house of the Elohim of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem.


The Root is in Jerusalem.  He has marked this little piece of earth to physically make His stand against the enemy in the last days and place His chosen there.  And all His law will come from Him.


Lev 25:23  The land shall not be sold forever: for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.


It should also be recognized that the scriptures, especially Father’s appointed times, are geared agriculturally to His land.  The seasons of His feasts are only represented correctly in His land.  For instance you cannot check the ripeness of the barley south of the equator since their seasons are opposite of the Northern Hemisphere.  And how could you sight the moon at the North Pole in the winter when the sun never fully rises or sets?
When we understand these things, where else should we look for the proclamation of the sighted New Moon than in Jerusalem?
