Genesis 1:14-15 (Lexham English Bible) And God said, “Let there be lights in the vaulted dome of heaven to separate day from night, and let them be as signs and for appointed times, and for days and years, and they shall be as lights in the vaulted dome of heaven to give light on the earth.” And it was so.
In Israel, we always look to the moon as all feast days start on a full moon. And now, we have the blood moons which are a hot topic especially since they are occurring on the major Jewish feast days. It seems this Creator has considered the moon as an indicator for many things including calculating time.
It seems we are only now coming to realize that the sun and moon are not just lights in the sky to separate night from day and to keep us fairly warm. My mother, as I was growing up, used to consult the phases of the moon so as to know the right time to plant and when to harvest. Most everywhere we lived in those years, 40s and 50s, there was always enough ground for planting vegetables, and we always had a wonderful crop harvest.
