Sign of the Sabbath

In Exodus 31:13-18 it says that the Sabbaths are a sign between us and Him. I used to believe this verse meant that me and Yahuah had this sign thing going on between us because I keep His Sabbath. I thought the sign was my observance of Sabbath. That thought process might not be totally wrong; but, I am now looking at these verses in a different light.

#226 - 'owth - probably from H225 (in the sense of appearing) 1) sign, signal a) a distinguishing mark b) banner c) remembrance d) miraculous sign e) omen f) warning 2) token, ensign, standard, miracle, proof

Genesis 1:14: 14 And Elohim said, Let lights come to be in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs (226) and appointed times, and for days and years.

Exodus 31:13-18: 13 And you, speak to the children of Yisra'el, saying, My Sabbaths you are to guard, by all means, for it is a sign (226) between Me and you throughout your generations, to know that I, Yahuah, am setting you apart.
14 And you shall guard the Sabbath, for it is set-apart to you. Everyone who profanes it shall certainly be put to death, for anyone who does work on it, that being shall be cut off from among his people.
15 Six days work is done, and on the seventh is a Sabbath of rest, set-apart to Yahuah. Everyone doing work on the Sabbath day shall certainly be put to death.
16 And the children of Yisra'el shall guard the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as an everlasting covenant (1285) .
17 Between Me and the children of Yisra'el it is a sign (226) forever. For in six days Yahuah made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed. For in six days Yahuah made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.”
18 And when He had ended speaking with him on Mount Sinai, He gave Mosheh two tablets of the Witness, tablets of stone, written with the finger of Elohim.

Ezekiel 20:12: 12 'And I also gave them My Sabbaths, to be a sign (226) between them and Me, to know that I am Yahuah who sets them apart.

Ezekiel 20:19-20: 19 I am Yahuah your Elohim. Walk in My laws, and guard My right-rulings, and do them. 20 And set apart My Sabbaths, and they shall be a sign (226) between Me and you, to know that I am Yahuah your Elohim.

Genesis 9:12-17: 12 And Elohim said, 'This is the sign (226) of the covenant (1285) which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for all generations to come:
13 'I shall set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign (226) of the covenant (1285) between Me and the earth.
14 'And it shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud,
15 and I shall remember My covenant (1285) which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh, and never again let the waters become a flood to destroy all flesh.
16 'And the rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I shall see it, to remember the everlasting covenant (1285) between Elohim and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.'
17 And Elohim said to Noah, 'This is the sign (226) of the covenant (1285) which I have established between Me and all flesh that is on the earth.

Notice this passage very carefully above. It mentions both a covenant and the sign of the covenant, and He even specifies that the sign or bow, would become a remembrance to Him of His covenant. The Scripture says “remember the Sabbath. Interesting that Yahuah had to put a remembrance in the heavens to remind Him of something. So - - ???

Genesis 17:10-11: 10 "This is My covenant (1285) which you guard between Me and you, and your seed after you: Every male child among you is to be circumcised.
11 "And you shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin, and it shall become a sign (226) of the covenant (1285) between Me and you.

Here again, a covenant and a physical sign of the covenant.

Psalm 81:3: Blow the ram's horn at the time of the New Moon, At the full moon, on our festival day.

This verse seems to indicate two owths, or signs, that occur in the moon, one of which would occur once a month and must be considered a sign, after all, it does begin the month and the other at least twice a year, once for the Festival of Unleavened Bread and once for Sukkoth.

Lev. 23:39: "On the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you gather in the fruit of the land, observe the festival of Yahuah for seven days. On the first day is a rest, and on the eighth day a rest.

So, the first day of the Feast is a full moon - sign? and the 8th day would be a half moon - another sign?
