Shalom Y’all!

Month: This is the first Biblical Hebrew month, also known as Aviv or Nissan!

Since this is the first month of the year according to the scriptures, we know that the Passover is quickly approaching! We will count 14 days till Passover!

Here is a quick run down of the Spring feast of Passover and Unleavened Bread!
*Please Note: ALL holy days begin the evening before!

Passover/Pesach: Tuesday, May 1st
Days of Unleavened Bread/Chag HaMatzot- Wednesday, May 2nd -Tuesday, May 8th

Thank you to all the people who faithfully look for the moon each month, and send in their reports! We appreciate your service in helping us all be on time for Our Creator’s appointments!

Make this month a great month, and we pray for a blessed Passover and Spring holy day season!

Abundant Blessings,
Brother Mark Harris

    You shall be accountable for every idle (teaching) word. How did the Israelites “check the barley” during the 40 years in the desert? If you teach lies, it would be better for you if you taught nothing at all.

    1. I do not believe they were checking the barley. I believe they were determining the equinox and sighting the first New Moon there after.

    I’m confused, you say that the Holy Days begin the evening before, so when you say Passover is on May 1, 2018, does that mean it begins just AFTER sundown on April 30, 2018 which would then be May 1?

    Also, the moon was sighted on the 17th so is that the first day of the year?

    Third, where do I find your other videos? I have not gotten any emails about them from you. I do get the new sightings, so I believe I’m on your mailing list. I would really like to watch your other videos.

    Thank you for all the work you do.

    1. Hello Marie,

      The New Moon was sighted on the 17th, so therefore that evening started the New Moon and went through the next day, which was the 18th.

      The 14th day of the first month does start at sunset on April 30th…

      The other videos will be coming soon!
      I hope that answered the questions for now….let me know if I can clarify anything else.
      Be blessed!

      Just had my Passover Sedder on the evening of May 1st as back in the day the lambs would have been slaughtered on the afternoon (technically the 14th) then eaten on the evening (technically the 15th) as the day starts when it gets dark. Glad to find a website that keeps the days according to the ancient path!

    We, here in Greenmount, Queensland Australia saw the new moon crescent approximately 8 hrs prior to Jerusalem on the evening ending 17th April. We observed it in the western sky at 6:30pm Australian Eastern Standard time. It is amazing how Yehovah God has set the rotation of the “heavenly bodies” in motion.
    Thank you for sending your Jerusalem reports to us, we appreciate it very much. We are studying the equinoxes at the moment. This is something very new for us to consider. Bye for now Jo & Arnold

    This is not really a comment, it is a question. I know some have already had Passover/Unleavened Bread. May I ask (because I want to understand not argue), how did you determine that this was the new year and not last moon sighting. Was it because it was after the equinox? Please explain.

    1. Hello Dorothy, Thank you for your question! 🙂

      Simply, yes, the new moon of the month following the 12th month (13th month), was sighted before Spring, therefore there is a 13th month, and the first new moon that is sighted after the spring will be the first month!
