About a year ago, I discovered that the WMSCOG bases Passover on the full moon after the spring equinox, and the Feast of Tabernacles on the full moon after the autumn equinox. Since they have finally publicly posted their fall feasts dates for 2019, I just wanted to give an update to show that this is still the case.

I’ve realized all but 1997 are visible, so here are the links to the image sources:

IMPORTANT UPDATE: I have not found how the WMSCOG calculates the dates, but instead found how AHNSAHNHONG HIMSELF did. This is a blog that was linked on the NCPCOG homepage: https://blog.naver.com/PostList.nhn?blogId=acj01&categoryNo=13&from=postList

“And the sun, the ruler of the day, making two equinoxes every year, both in spring and a…[Read more]
If this method of calculation is true, it can be applied to the “prophetic” Day of Atonement, October 22, 1844.
The first full moon after the autumn equinox is September 26th. This is Tabernacles 1844. Tabernacles is the 15th day of the seventh month, while the Day of Atonement is the tenth. Counting backwards 5 days from the 26th gives us…[Read more]
In my research, I’ve discovered that the WMSCOG bases the spring feasts around the first full moon after spring equinox and the fall feasts around the first full moon after the autumn equinox. This is why in some years the fall feasts are on the eighth month and not the seventh.
For full moon dates:…[Read more]

I’m a college student who was approached by a student attending the WMSCOG a year ago and am still meeting with him weekly. We have discussed a wide variety of topics. I’m thankful for both this website and Genny’s blog for the useful resources and information.
Last week we discussed the 40 year reign. The WMSCOG says “Jesus was to come to this e…[Read more]
