next morning or it would spoil.
Exodus 16:23-24 KJV
This is that which the LORD hath said, To morrow is the rest of the holy sabbath
unto the LORD: bake that which ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye will seethe;
and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning. And they
laid it up till the morning, as Moses bade: and it did not stink, neither was there
any worm therein. And Moses said, Eat that to day; for to day is a sabbath unto the
LORD: to day ye shall not find it in the field.
Again, the morning represents the beginning of tomorrow, the next day. Sunrise
is the marker for the day as the sun is the measure and Jubilees is accurate to
scripture. Even in Joshua, the day begins at sunrise.
Joshua 5:10-12 KJV
And the children of Israel encamped in Gilgal, and kept the passover on the fourteenth
day of the month at even in the plains of Jericho. And they did eat of the old corn of
the land on the morrow after the passover, unleavened cakes, and parched corn in the
selfsame day. And the manna ceased on the morrow after they had eaten of the old
corn of the land; neither had the children of Israel manna any more; but they did eat
of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year.
Tomorrow in the morning at sunrise was the next day. This chronology is also the
same in the story of Lot.
Genesis 19:34 KJV
And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I
lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou
in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
We see this specifically in the account of Gideon where twice he leaves the fleece
at night and the morning it is to be wet one day and dry the next. In both cases,
the morning was tomorrow, the next day. (Judges 6) In Joshua 7:13-14, Israel
is to sanctify themselves for tomorrow and then, the morning comes and it is
tomorrow at that point. The day has always begun at sunrise not midnight and not
sundown. The same is accounted in the narrative of Abimelech as the morning
is also tomorrow. (Judges 9:42-45) This is not an issue that the Bible leaves up
for debate, it settles it. Test it for yourself. The Bible has always indicated a solar
calendar exactly as Jubilees lays out. There is no fitting the Lunar one.
