I have tried everything the manual has told me to do, It is a new mower that I just purchased but I am at a loss for how to keep the blade engaged, I got the RPM up to where the manual told me and pulled the red lever to engage the blade and it shuts off the engine.

Sounds like you are having a seat switch issue. Make sure seat switch is engaging fully
