 Letís pray

Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500ís.

Today is March 22, 2014

 

March -- Mars' month

Middle English March
Anglo-French March
Old English
Martius
Latin
Martius "of Mars"
Latin Marti(s) "Mars" + -us (adj. suffix
)
Latin
Martius mensis "month of Mars"

Martius has always had 31 days.

March was the original beginning of the year and the time for the resumption of war.

Mars is the Roman god of war. He is identified with the Greek god Ares.

------------------

Yehovah has His own calendar

We are now in the 13th month, which is the month called 2nd Adar, 20th day

Esth.3 [7] In the first month, that is, the month Nisan, in the twelfth year of king Ahasuerus, they cast Pur, that is, the lot, before Haman from day to day, and from month to month, to the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar.

Adar = ďgloriousĒ-אדר - Corresponding to modern March / April

 Soon ha Aviv, Nisan

It seems I can never review these days early enough for you

 

Here are some approximate 2014 dates for the feasts and holy days; this is the best I can do at this time.

 

**Remember, all 2014 dates I give you start in the evening before

Godís New Year

First of Nisan is April 1 starts evening before (March 31), we believe.

Passover, evening of the 14th

First day of Unleavened Bread Ė Aviv 15   April 15 starts Evening of April 14

Last Day of Unleavened Bread Ė Aviv 21 April 21, starts the evening of April 20

Feast of Weeks - Sunday - June 8 starts the Evening of June 7th

If they do not see the New Moon on March 31, then the first of Nisan would be April 2 and all the dates above except the Feast of weeks would increase by 1 day.

Todayís Topic:

A short review of the Spring Feasts and Holy Days

---------------

In a nutshell, here is the understanding of the Spring Feasts and Holy Days; we do them in memorial as the Apostles did.

------

When did Yeshua die?

Date / Purpose / Significance to the believer

The Spring Feasts of
Yehovah were fulfilled by the Messiah's first coming!

 

Passover Ė Pesach

Nisan 14 - Yeshua died on Thursday approximately 3:00 pm Matt:27:45 - 1st. day

 

Simply put:

Remembering the deliverance from Egyptian bondage:

An unblemished firstborn male lamb was sacrificed and its blood poured on the altar.

A lamb was selected for each family; four days before the lamb was to be slain (Nisan 10) it was examined for blemishes.

Yeshua, the lamb of God, also had a four-day examination period before the religious leaders and was found without blemish.

 

Yeshua is the sacrificial lamb who died for our sins. On Nisan 14 at the exact time the lamb was to be slain, Yeshua was slain.

 

The Feast of Unleavened Bread / Hag HaMatzah was Nisan 15 - a Sabbath - 1st. night- 2nd day (Fri.)

 

Leaven symbolizes sin.

Unleavened Bread (humble bread, sinless, not puffed up) speaks of sanctification, holiness.

God told the Jews to cleanse all leaven from their homes and eat only unleavened bread, matzah, for seven days, symbolizing a holy, sinless walk with Him.

Yeshua is the "Bread of Life" without sin, born in Bethlehem.

In Hebrew, Bethlehem means house of bread.

Just as matzah is unleavened, (sign of no sin) so was the Messiah sinless.

 

Get the ďold leavenĒ out (of your hearts, lives)

I also mean false doctrines, hypocrisy, malice and wickedness

Paul says:

1 Cor. 5 [8] Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

------------------------

Beware of "leaven" - false doctrines and hypocrisy

Beware of false pastors, teachers and fake rabbis

Matt. 16 [6] Then Yeshua said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

Mark 8 [15] And he charged them, saying, take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.

Luke 12 [1] In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.

---------------

This Feast falls on the evening before Yeshua was put in the sepulcher.

 

Nisan 16, a Sabbath - 2nd. night - 3nd. day (Sat.)

Day of First fruits / Bikkurim Nisan 17 - 3rd. night,

Nisan 17 then as the sun did rise - Mark 16:2, early the first day of the week, Sunday -Yeshua rose from the Dead which is 3 days and 3 nights

--------------------

The first of the barley harvest was brought as an offering to the priest in the Tabernacle/Temple.

The priest would present the first of the harvest unto Yehovah by waving them back and forth.

This reminded the Hebrews that God gave them the land, and the harvest belonged to Him. (1 Cor. 15:20-23).

Yeshua' resurrection marked the beginning of the harvest of souls.

John 12:23-24,32 shows Yeshua was likened to a grain of wheat falling to the ground and dying to produce a great harvest.

Yeshua rose on First fruits.

Fifty days later is the Feast of Weeks/Shavuot- Pentecost where the Holy Spirit empowered the believers.

Letís continue our review

 

Godís New Year is coming! Godís New Year may be found in Exod. 12:2

 

Godís New Year is in Spring, when all is new again!

 

(Not winter, January or Judaismís made up Tishri, in September)

 

Exod. 12 [2] This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.

הַחֹדֶשׁ הַזֶּה לָכֶם, רֹאשׁ חֳדָשִׁים:

רִאשׁוֹן הוּא לָכֶם, לְחָדְשֵׁי הַשָּׁנָה

---------------

Exod. 13 [4] This day came ye out in the month (ha) Abib.

הַיּוֹם, אַתֶּם יֹצְאִים , בְּחֹדֶשׁ, הָאָבִיב

 

Esth. 3 [7] In the first month, that is, the month Nisan

בַּחֹדֶשׁ הָרִאשׁוֹן, הוּא־חֹדֶשׁ נִיסָן

 

---------------

The Spring Feasts of Yehovah

 

Lev. 23 [1] And Yehovah spake unto Moses, saying,


[2] Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them,
Concerning the feasts of Yehovah, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.

The Sabbath - [3] Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of Yehovah in all your dwellings.

 

[4] These are the feasts of Yehovah, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.

--------------

[5] In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is Yehovah's passover.

--------------

[6] And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto Yehovah: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread.

[7] In the first day ye shall have an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.
[8] But ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto
Yehovah seven days: in the seventh day is an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.

---------------

[9] And Yehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

[10] Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest unto the priest:

[11] And he shall wave the sheaf before Yehovah, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the sabbath the priest shall wave it.

[12] And ye shall offer that day when ye wave the sheaf an he lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering unto Yehovah.
[13] And the meat offering thereof shall be two tenth deals of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire unto
Yehovah for a sweet savour: and the drink offering thereof shall be of wine, the fourth part of an hin.

[14] And ye shall eat neither bread, nor parched corn, nor green ears, until the selfsame day that ye have brought an offering unto your God:

it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

----------------

[15] And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete:

[16] Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto Yehovah.

 

[17] Ye shall bring out of your habitations two wave loaves of two tenth deals: they shall be of fine flour; they shall be baken with leaven; they are the firstfruits unto Yehovah.

[18] And ye shall offer with the bread seven lambs without blemish of the first year, and one young bullock, and two rams: they shall be for a burnt offering unto Yehovah, with their meat offering, and their drink offerings, even an offering made by fire, of sweet savour unto Yehovah.

[19] Then ye shall sacrifice one kid of the goats for a sin offering, and two lambs of the first year for a sacrifice of peace offerings.

[20] And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the first fruits (wheat) for a wave offering before Yehovah, with the two lambs: they shall be holy to Yehovah for the priest.

[21] And ye shall proclaim on the selfsame day, that it may be an holy convocation unto you: ye shall do no servile work therein: it shall be a statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.

[22] And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not make clean riddance of the corners of thy field when thou reapest, neither shalt thou gather any gleaning of thy harvest: thou shalt leave them unto the poor, and to the stranger: I am Yehovah your God. אֲנִי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם

-----------------

After Passover, the Feast of Unleavened Bread, a Sabbath, then First Fruits then the last day of Feast of Unleavened Bread, a Sabbath

 

Feast of Weeks Ė Pentecost is in the 3rd Month Sivan

 

Reminder:

We will be counting "weeks" not omers.

An "omer" is a "sheaf" of barley

עמר omer- A dry measure of 1/10 ephah (about 2 liters)

-------------

This will be the first Sabbath of the seven Sabbaths we were told to count.

Lev.23 [15] And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath,

from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete:

[16] Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto Yehovah.

-----------

The morrow after the Sabbath is always the 1st day of the week (Sunday)

The morrow after the seventh Sabbath is fifty days from the First Fruits / (The Resurrection of Yeshua)

Then onward to the Feast of Weeks / Pentecost Ė 50 days

Reminder: Feast of Weeks - (Sabbath) (Sunday) it will start in the evening before (2 Sabbaths in a row)

[10] And thou shalt keep the feast of weeks unto Yehovah thy God with a tribute of a freewill offering of thine hand, which thou shalt give unto Yehovah thy God, according as Yehovah thy God hath blessed thee:

[11] And thou shalt rejoice before Yehovah thy God, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite that is within thy gates, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are among you, in the place which Yehovah thy God hath chosen to place his name there.

------------------------

 

Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread, First fruits, Feast of Weeks / Pentecost are all in the gospels and letters.

Yeshua, the apostles and Saul /Paul, all observed these Feasts and Holy Days.

Letís read:

Passover

Messiah our Passover

 

Matt 26 [2] Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.

[17] Now the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Yeshua, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover?

[18] And he said, Go into the city to such a man, and say unto him, The Master saith, My time is at hand; I will keep the passover at thy house with my disciples.

[19] And the disciples did as Yeshua had appointed them; and they made ready the passover.

 

Mark 14 [1] After two days was the feast of the passover, and of unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him by craft, and put him to death.

[12] And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the passover?

[14] And wheresoever he shall go in, say ye to the goodman of the house, The Master saith, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?

[16] And his disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.

 

Luke 2 [41] Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover.

 

Luke 22 [1] Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the passover.

[7] Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed.

[8] And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat.

[11] And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?

[13] And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.

[15] And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:

 

John 2 [13] And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Yeshua went up to Jerusalem,

[23] Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did.

John 6 [4] And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh.

 

John 11 [55] And the Jews' passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify themselves.

 

John 12 [1] Then Yeshua six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.

 

John 13 [1] Now before the feast of the passover, when Yeshua knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.

 

John 18 [28] Then led they Yeshua from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover.

[39] But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews?

 

John 19 [14] And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!

 

1 Cor. 5 [7] Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Messiah our Passover is sacrificed for us:

 

Heb. 11 [28] Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.

Mark 14 [1] After two days was the feast of the passover, and of unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him by craft, and put him to death.

[12] And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the passover?

 

Luke 22 [1] Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover.

[7] Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed.

 

Acts 12 [3] And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)

 

Acts 20 [6] And we sailed away from Philippi after the days of unleavened bread, and came unto them to Troas in five days; where we abode seven days.

 

1 Cor. 5 [7] Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Messiah our passover is sacrificed for us:

[8] Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

-----------------

First fruits

 

Messiah the first fruits

Rom. 8 [23] And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

 

Rom. 16 [5] Likewise greet the church that is in their house. Salute my wellbeloved Epaenetus, who is the first fruits of Achaia unto Messiah.

 1 Cor. 15 [20] But now is Messiah risen from the dead, and become the first fruits of them that slept.

[23] But every man in his own order: Messiah the firstfruits; afterward they that are Messiah's at his coming.

 

1 Cor. 16 [15] I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the first fruits of Achaia, and that they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints,)

 

Jas. 1 [18] Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures.

 

Rev. 14 [4] These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the first fruits unto God and to the Lamb.

------------------

Feasts of weeks Ė Pentecost observed by the Apostles and disciples after the resurrection

Acts.2

[1] And when the day of Pentecost was fully come (Feast of Weeks), they were all with one accord in one place.
[2] And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled
all the house where they were sitting.
[3] And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
[4] And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
[5] And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.

[6] Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
[7] And they were all amazed and
marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?
[8] And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?
[9]
Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,
[10] Phrygia, and
Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,
[11]
Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.
[12] And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another,
What meaneth this?
[13] Others mocking said,
These men are full of new wine.
[14] But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:
[15] For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.
[16] But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
[17] And it shall come to pass in the last days,
saith God,I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
[18] And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
[19] And I will
shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
[20] The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of
Yehovah come:
[21] And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of
Yehovah shall be saved.

 Acts 20 [16] For Paul had determined to sail by Ephesus, because he would not spend the time in Asia: for he hasted, if it were possible for him, to be at Jerusalem the day of Pentecost. (Feast of Weeks)

 

1 Cor. 16 [8] But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost. (Feast of Weeks)

7 *** [36] Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto Yehovah: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto Yehovah: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein. 22nd day

שִׁבְעַת יָמִים, תַּקְרִיבוּ אִשֶּׁה לַיהוָה; בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁמִינִי מִקְרָא-קֹדֶשׁ יִהְיֶה לָכֶם וְהִקְרַבְתֶּם אִשֶּׁה לַיהוָה, עֲצֶרֶת הִוא--כָּל-מְלֶאכֶת עֲבֹדָה, לֹא תַעֲשׂוּ

In closing:

 

This was just a short review of the Spring Feasts and Holy days of Yehovah we do in memorial which includes:

 

Godís Spring Calendar

The Godís New Year

We will be counting "weeks" not omers

The 7 extra Sabbath besides the weekly Sabbath in the Feast and Holy Days in the 1st month, 3rd month, and 7th month of God

3 harvests, feasts, not 7 feasts

 

Remember Godís calendar is different than the Gregorian and Judaism calendars.

 

Also remember, God starts His days in the evening

 

Some words to know:

 

Lev. 23 [3] Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the Sabbath of rest, an "holy convocation"; ye shall do no work therein: it is the

Sabbath of Yehovah in all your dwellings

Dwelling מושׁב môshâv - seat, assembly, dwelling-place, dwelling, your situation, location, (at) time of dwelling

Servile work מְלֶאכֶת עֲבֹדָה

עֲבֹדָה avodah - work of any kind: act, bondservant, labour, service, tillage, work

מְלֶאכֶתmelakat - occupation, work, business public business

------------

The Sabbath is a "holy convocation"

Holy convocation מִקְרָא-קֹדֶשׁ

קדשׁ kodesh: a sacred place or thing; consecrated, dedicated, hallowed, holiness, saint, sanctuary, apartness, sacredness, separateness, apartness, sacredness, holiness

Feast חַג chag - feast

chagag חגג - properly to move in a circle, that is, (specifically) to march in a sacred procession, to observe a festival; - celebrate, dance, (keep, hold) a (solemn) feast (holy day)

 ------------

Buying and selling is evil on the Sabbaths

 

Neh. 13 [16] There dwelt men of Tyre also therein, which brought fish, and all manner

of ware, and sold on the sabbath unto the children of Judah, and in Jerusalem.

[17] Then I contended with the nobles of Judah, and said unto them, What evil thing is this that ye do, and profane the Sabbath day?

 

 

Preparation should be considered to observe these days properly.

 

Start preparing!

 

Shabbat Shalom
