Passover Dates

Shalom!

We have had several people ask me for the dates of the upcoming Feast Days.  Some of you may not need this explanation and can find the dates at the bottom of this post. Others, I have found, are just beginning and would like a more detailed explanation of these dates as they relate to the biblical dates. The following is a very simplistic explanation. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask for more clarification.

Since the New Moon was sighted the night of  April 11th (days begin at sunset on the Hebrew calendar),  that  makes April 12th the first day of the new month (Abib in Hebrew) on the Roman calendar. Counting 14 days to Passover (Pesach in Hebrew) would put the evening of Wednesday, April 24th as the beginning of the 14th of Abib and  Thursday, the 25th as the day part of the 14th.   The Messiah (the true Lamb of The Almighty)  had His meal with His disciples the evening part of the 14th (that time this year is Wednesday, April 24th after sunset). He was then betrayed that night, and the next day crucified at the same time the lambs would have been slaughtered during the day part of the 14th (that would be Thursday, April 25th before sunset).  The 14th of Abib is the preparation day for the Passover.

The actual first pass-over of Exodus 12, has the children of Israel sacrificing the lambs late on the 14th day of Abib, putting the blood on their front door jams, and eating it that night, the beginning of the 15th (that time this year is Thursday, April 25th after sunset).  At midnight, the death angel passed over the Israelites homes.  The 15th day of the month is also the first day of unleavened bread which is a special feast day (See Leviticus 23)  which starts Thursday night at sunset, April 25th and ends at sunset Friday, April 26th.   The Feast of Unleavened Bread or (Chag HaMatzot in Hebrew) continues for an entire 7 days and on the the 7th day, we are commanded to hold a another feast to YHWH which would then be Wednesday, May 1st, at sunset to Thursday, May 2nd at sunset.

In summary, for simplicity, the dates according to the Roman Calendar of this years Festivals of YHWH (Lev 23) are as follows.  Keep in mind the days on the Hebrew calendar (which is how we want to keep them), are from sunset to sunset.

Messiah’s Last Passover Meal :  Wednesday  night, April 24, 2013, after sunset (the 14th day, night portion)

Passover (Pesach) Preparation Day:  Thursday, April 25th, 2013  (the 14th day, day portion)

Passover (Night To Be Observed):  Thursday night, April 25th, 2013, after sunset (the 15th day, night portion)

First Day of Unleavened Bread:  Friday, April 26th, 2013, starts at sunset night before, (the 15th day, whole day)

Seventh Day of Unleavened Bread, Thursday, May 2nd, 2013,  starts at sunset night before, (the 21st day. whole day)

May you have a joyous Pesach Season Celebration!

Why does this New Moon start Adar 2 instead of Aviv – The New Year?

Tonight, Wednesday night, March 13th 2013, starts the first day
of Adar II. this is the 13th month in the Hebrew calendar.

Because of much confusion out there on this subject, many people ask
how do we know it’s the 13th month, Adar II, and Not the first month, Abib
(Aviv)?

So, I’m going to give a quick answer so you can know for sure.

Well, the answer is actually quite simple.  In Genesis 1:14 The Almighty
states:

“Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide
the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for
seasons, and for days, and years:”

This means that The Creator designed the Heavens like a precision clock,
and that specifically, the Sun and the Moon was to give us our
seasons, days, and NOTICE, years!

Therefore, the ONLY biblical accurate determination of years,
MUST come from either the moon, the sun, or both!  Nothing else.

Now, since the new moon comes every “Moonth” or Month, and nothing
different happens with the moon to tell us when the year begins,
the Sun assists us by knowing which New Moon begins the New Year.

The Creator has determined that His Year will begin in the Spring.
Abib (Aviv) basically means Spring, or Green-Ear-month.  And in Exodus 12:2
and 13:4  states that this month is the beginning of Months for you;
and the month of Abib (Aviv), was that month.

But when is it?   It’s obviously not determined by the Moon,
and the only biblical standard of determining a year, must be
the Moon and Sun as stated above.

And, from from the time of the Egyptian Pharaohs, when they
were coming out of Egypt, even up to this day, we determine
spring by the vernal, or spring equinox.   This is the day
when the Sun goes “exactly” from East to the West.  Usually,
this occurs from March 20th to the 22th.  This year it’s on the 20th.

So, a New Year cannot start until spring.  It’s not spring yet,
so, it’s still winter.  And since we’ve had 12 months since the last
Abib (Aviv), and we now have a New Moon, this New Moon is the 13th Month,
or Adar II.

The First New Moon AFTER the Spring Equinox, begins the New Year, so
the next New Moon, begins the new year, and the New Moon, Abib (Aviv)

I hope this quick answer helps you to understand this much misunderstood
topic.

New Moon Report – Eleventh Biblical Hebrew Month (Shavat)

Shalom Everyone!

Unfortunately we do not have any reports of the new moon being sighted in Israel for this month. But since it is the 30th day of Tevet (tenth month), by default whether the moon is sighted or not, the next day is automatically declared the first day of the month. (Because there can never be more than 30 days in a month) .

So that being said, new moon day will be from Sunday, January 13th at sunset through Monday the 14th.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

Have a Happy New Moon Day!
Brother Mark Harris
