Full Moon (Light) vs. Dark Moon
Are we not the children of day keeping the instructions of His Light
since He separates the day from the night?
The 1st chapter of Genesis shows us that the morning is the beginning of the day and the evening is the end of the day.
John 11:9-10 Yahushua answered, “Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. But if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him."
1 Th. 5:5 for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness.
So why do those seek after the nightly observation of the tiny crescent moon? Beware of those who stumble in the teachings of blindness that dominates the fleshly minds for the sake of the traditions of men.
Remember that David (1 Sam. 20:5-27) saw the full moon rising at the sunset knowing that tomorrow came to be the day of Chodesh (new month), in contrary to many who do in the night locating the tiny crescent moon.
New Moon is meant in fullness, freshness, purity, Light, and Old Moon is in emptiness, impurity, blemish, darkness.
Many would call it the dark moon "new moon", but it is nothing of receiving any part of sunshine. What is opposed to the full moon (all light)? It is a dark moon (all dark). As for the full moon, it is like to build a house fully in which we call a new house. As for the dark moon, it is nothing to build a house, can we call it a new house? Therefore the full moon is built fully by the sunshine (the Light builder) and it is new.
The 7th full moon is also known as the Harvest Moon. It is how we gather the production harvested from the beginning of the lunar month (full moon) in order to celebrate the feast of Tabernacles, which is at the dark/empty moon (15th).
Full Moon (body being full of light) vs. Dark Moon (body being full of darkness):
Luke 11:34-36. “The lamp of your body is your eye: when your eye is sound, your whole body also is full of light; but when it is evil, your body is also full of darkness. Look therefore whether the light that is in you be not darkness. If therefore your whole body be full of light, having no part dark, it shall be wholly full of light, as when the lamp with its bright shining does give you light.” We are the children of Full (New) Moon seeing all things of Light, not the children of Dark Moon which are of the things of darkness. 1 Th. 4:4-5 "But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day would overtake you like a thief; for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness."
The words of opposition are identified in both phases/kingdoms: Full Moon has the characteristics: full, love, warmth, all, light, life, pure, unblemishness, clothed, perfect, new. Dark Moon has the characteristics: emptiness, hate, coldness, nothing, darkness, death, impurity, blemishness, naked, imperfect, old.
Luke 11:33-36 "“The eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye is clear, your whole body also is full of light; but when it is bad, your body also is full of darkness. If the eye is clear (brightened sun) then the body (full moon) is brightened, but if the eye is bad (darkened sun), then the body (moon) is darkened."
Spiritual birth in the Light (Full Moon) [I am the Light], purifying from all blemishness/filthiness, freedom from the slavery of darkness/kingdom of Satan, restoring to the full knowledge of Light/Righteousness from ignorance of deceit/ wickedness.
His dividing Lights (Sun and Full Moon) gives us the lunar cycle to begin with:
With the understanding of Gen 1:14-18, the two greater lights (the sun and the full moon) were divided to govern the day and the night, so that the sun shone daily and the full moon shone nightly but because of the violation of His Law, the man lost his power in charge of the living creatures, the woman was bruised to begin her monthly menustration like the full moon leaks its lights and has its lunar cycle around the earth. Prov. 8:22-29 "YHWH possessed me at the beginning of His way, before His works of old. From everlasting I was established, from the beginning, from the earliest times of the earth..."; Ecc. 3:11; Isa. 40:21 "Do you not know? Have you not heard ? Has it not been declared to you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?" His creation was at the beginning with the sun and full moon separated before He rested on the seventh day: Chodesh (Full Moon) and Shabbat were originally established for man, but after the fall of man, we have labor to restore back to the Chodesh (full moon) in order to keep the Shabbats within its lunar month.
Galatians 4:10 You observe days (yamim), months (chodeshim), and appointed times (moadim), years (shanim).
Ps 81:3 “Blow the trumpet in the Chodesh [new month],
at the full moon [phase], on the day of our feast.”

Hebrew transliteration: Tiq`uw ba-Chodesh shophar bakeceh lyom chagenu.
The Hebrew word "keceh" as full moon also can be found in Job 26:9; Prov. 7:20.
