Only one beginning of the year and one end of the year
Deut. 11  A land which the LORD thy God careth for: the eyes of the LORD thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year.
Many other very important events happened on the first day, first month,
Here are some "new beginnings"
Exod. 40  On the first day of the first month shalt thou set up the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.
 And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, that the tabernacle was reared up.
 And he reared up the court round about the tabernacle and the altar, and set up the hanging of the court gate. So Moses finished the work.
 Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
 And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of the congregation, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
 And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys:
 But if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up.
 For the cloud of the LORD was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.
Gen. 8  And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
Ezra 7  Now
after these things, in the reign of Artaxerxes king of Persia, Ezra the son of Seraiah, the son of Azariah, the
son of Hilkiah,
 The son of Shallum, the son of Zadok, the son of Ahitub,
 The son of Amariah, the son of Azariah, the son of Meraioth,
 The son of Zerahiah, the son of Uzzi, the son of Bukki,
 The son of Abishua, the son of Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the chief priest:
 This Ezra went up from Babylon;
and he was a ready scribe in the law of Moses, which the LORD God of Israel had
given: and the king granted him all his request, according to the hand of the
LORD his God upon him.
 For upon the first day of the first month began he to go up from Babylon,
and on the first day of the fifth month came he to Jerusalem, according to the good hand of his God upon him.
 For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the
law of the LORD, and to do it, and to teach in Israel statutes and judgments.
Ezra 10  And they made an end with all the men that had taken strange wives ðÈùÑÄéí ðÈëÀøÄéÌåÉú by the first day of the first month.
Ezek. 29  And it came to pass in the
seven and twentieth year, in the first month, in
the first day of the month, the word of the LORD came unto me,
 Son of man, Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon caused his army to serve a great service against Tyrus: every head was made bald, and every shoulder was peeled: yet had he no wages, nor his army, for Tyrus, for the service that he had served against it:
 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will give the land of Egypt unto Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon; and he shall take her multitude, and take her spoil, and take her prey; and it shall be the wages for his army.
 I have given him the land of Egypt for his labour wherewith he served against it, because they wrought for me, saith the Lord GOD.
 In that day will I cause the horn of
the house of Israel to bud forth, and I will give thee the opening of the mouth
in the midst of them; and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Time to "come out and be separate"
By strength of hand the LORD brought us out from Egypt,
From the house of bondage
house of bondage = bondage of sin and Satan
When thy son asketh thee...
 And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the LORD brought you out from this place: there shall no leavened bread be eaten.
 And thou shalt shew thy son in that day, saying, This is done because of that which the LORD did unto me when I came forth out of Egypt.
 And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD's law may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand hath the LORD brought thee out of Egypt.
 And it shall be when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying,
What is this?
that thou shalt say unto him, By strength of hand the LORD brought us out from Egypt, from the house of bondage:
 And it came to pass, when Pharaoh would hardly let us go, that the LORD slew all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of beast: therefore I sacrifice to the LORD all that openeth the matrix, being males; but all the firstborn of my children I redeem.
 And when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which the LORD our God hath commanded you?
 Then thou shalt say unto thy son, We were Pharaoh's bondmen in Egypt; and the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand:
 And the LORD shewed signs and wonders, great and sore, upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our eyes:
 And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers.
 And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the LORD our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day.
 And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us.
Watch out for the mixed multitude
Exod. 12  And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle.
Num. 11  And the mixt multitude that was among them fell a lusting: and the children of Israel also wept again, and said, Who shall give us flesh to eat?
Neh. 13  Now it came to pass, when they had heard the law, that they separated from Israel all the mixed multitude.
"Come out and be separate"
Exod. 33 For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth.
Lev. 20  But I have said unto you, Ye shall inherit their land, and I will give it unto you to possess it, a land that floweth with milk and honey: I am the LORD your God, which have separated you from other people.
Deut. 32  When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.
1 Kgs. 8  For they be thy people, and thine inheritance, which thou broughtest forth out of Egypt, from the midst of the furnace of iron:
 That thine eyes may be open unto the supplication of thy servant, and unto the supplication of thy people Israel, to hearken unto them in all that they call for unto thee.
 For thou didst separate them from among all the people of the earth, to be thine inheritance, as thou spakest by the hand of Moses thy servant, when thou broughtest our fathers out of Egypt, O Lord GOD.
Ezra 6  And the children of the captivity kept the passover upon the fourteenth day of the first month.
 For the priests and the Levites were purified together, all of them were pure, and killed the passover for all the children of the captivity, and for their brethren the priests, and for themselves.
 And the children of Israel, which were come again out of captivity, and all such as had separated themselves unto them from the filthiness of the heathen of the land, to seek the LORD God of Israel, did eat,
 And kept the feast of unleavened
bread seven days with joy: for the LORD had made them joyful, and turned the
heart of the king of Assyria unto them, to strengthen their hands in the work
of the house of God, the God of Israel.
Ezra 10  And that whosoever would not come within three days, according to the counsel of the princes and the elders, all his substance should be forfeited, and himself separated from the congregation of those that had been carried away.
 Then all the men of Judah and Benjamin gathered themselves together unto Jerusalem within three days. It was the ninth month, on the twentieth day of the month; and all the people sat in the street of the house of God, trembling because of this matter, and for the great rain.
 And Ezra the priest stood up, and said unto them, Ye have transgressed, and have taken strange wives, to increase the trespass of Israel.
 Now therefore make confession unto the LORD God of your fathers, and do his pleasure: and separate yourselves from the people of the land, and from the strange wives.
 Then all the congregation answered and said with a loud voice, As thou hast said, so must we do.
 But the people are many, and it is a time of much rain, and we are not able to stand without, neither is this a work of one day or two: for we are many that have transgressed in this thing.
 Let now our rulers of all the congregation stand, and let all them which have taken strange wives in our cities come at appointed times, and with them the elders of every city, and the judges thereof, until the fierce wrath of our God for this matter be turned from us.
Neh. 9  And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all strangers, and stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their fathers.
 And they stood up in their place, and
read in the book of the law of the LORD their God one fourth part of the day;
and another fourth part they confessed, and worshipped the LORD their God.
Neh. 10  And the rest of the people, the priests, the Levites, the porters, the singers, the Nethinims, and all they that had separated themselves from the people of the lands unto the law of God, their wives, their sons, and their daughters, every one having knowledge, and having understanding;
 They clave to their brethren, their nobles, and entered into a curse, and into an oath, to walk in God's law, which was given by Moses the servant of God, and to observe and do all the commandments of the LORD our Lord, and his judgments and his statutes;
 And that we would not give our
daughters unto the people of the land, nor take their daughters for our sons:
Neh. 13  On that day they read in the book of Moses in the audience of the people; and therein was found written, that the Ammonite and the Moabite should not come into the congregation of God for ever;
 Because they met not the children of Israel with bread and with water, but hired Balaam against them, that he should curse them: howbeit our God turned the curse into a blessing.
 Now it came to pass, when they had heard the law, that they separated from Israel all the mixed multitude.
Rom. 1  Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,
In the end, Messiah will separate all
Matt. 25  When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
Rev. 18  And I heard another voice from heaven, saying,
Come out of her, my people,
that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
Separate yourselves from this world, be "born from above, born of the water and spirit", born again.
John 3  Yeshua ... said ... Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
 Yeshua answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
 That which is born of the flesh is flesh;
and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
 Marvel not that I said unto thee,
Ye must be born again.
"A new heart and a new spirit"
Ezek. 18  Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel?
Ezek. 36  A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
"a new creature, a new man"
Eph. 4  That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in
righteousness and true holiness.
Col. 3  Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;  And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
2 Cor. 5  Therefore if any man be in Messiah, he is a new creature: old things are passed away;
behold, all things are become new.
 Seeing ye have purified your souls in
obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see
that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:
 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever.
And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
Rev. 21  And he that sat upon the throne said,
Behold, I make all things new.
And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
Please: Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the LORD brought you out from this place.
Happy New Year
New man, new creature
