Our Confirmed Schedule of Memorial Emblems/ Passover/FOUB

*sorry for any confusion, we had mistakenly typed NTBMO for the night to take the Memorial Emblems, this has been corrected now. Dates remain the same.
Responsibilities in order to keep The Passover/Feast of Unleavened Bread
This is the schedule for Yahweh’s first month~ The Abib.
Please note that you should be looking for and throwing out any leaven (yeast,baking soda & baking powder) you have in your house(and most importantly yourself- which is, anything that puffs up, pride, sin, etc.) March 30th if you are taking the Memorial Emblems, or The First High Day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread if you are not baptised yet.
1. The aviv search in Israel will be conducted on March 16th and 17th on your secular calendar. The barley IS Aviv! The new moon has been sighted on the night of March 17th on your secular calendar! The night of the 17th and the day of the 18th are New Moon Day.
2. On the 10th day of Yahweh’s first month, you are to spiritually choose and examine “your lamb“, to see if it is worthy to be the Messiah~ don‘t just follow anyone who claims to be a Messiah, you must choose the One without blemish! This day happens to fall on Sabbath, March 27th this year. This day is spiritually compared to the 10 days of Awe ending on the Day of Atonement, only during that time, WE examine ourselves to see if we are worthy of the Lamb.
3.On the night of March 30th on the secular calendar, we will be hosting The Taking of the Memorial Emblems. Since Yahshua WAS the Passover Lamb, He would not be alive on the Leviticus 23 Passover, He would be in the earth for 3 days and 3 nights, just as Jonah was in the belly of the big fish. So, on this night, we will be observing the taking of the Memorial Emblems (Unleavened bread and wine or grape juice) and The Foot washing, as Yahshua demonstrated for us.
4. The First High Day of The Feast of Unleavened Bread starts on the night of the 14th day of Yahweh’s month, which is March 31st, and ends at night on April 1st. So, if you will be observing this Feast, you should make arrangements to not be conducting any commerce/work during this time period. We will be meeting during the day on Thursday, April 1st at 1:00pm in Newport, at Little Buffalo State Park.
5.The intervening days, except for Sabbath, are not mandated Sabbaths, so you may work on them.
6. The 4th of April is the Day of the waving of the Omer and signifies the first fruits of Yahweh being presented to Him, including His Son and probably those who arose with Him during the earthquake and walked around. It is not a High Day, but we will be “observing” this day in the morning by reading verses about the wave sheaf offering. This day starts our 50 day count to Shavuot or Pentecost, the day the Holy Spirit was given. A good day to be Baptized!
7.The Last High Day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread is Wed. April 7th so no work should be done from the night of the 6th until the night of the 7th. We will be meeting again at 1:00pm in Newport at Little Buffalo State Park.
8.The next High Day in conjunction with this Feast cycle (The Spring Feasts of Yahweh) is Shavuot or Pentecost. This falls on May 23rd, 2010 which is a Sunday. We will be camping at the Ferry Boat Campground in Liverpool on Rte. 11/15 http://www.ferryboatcampsites.com/index.htm
Phone 717-444-3200. You may call them after April 24th to make reservations. Due to it falling right after Sabbath, and we do no servile work on a Sabbath, we will be staying from the afternoon of Friday May 21st, and paying until Monday May 24th. We will tear down after the High Day is over though, on the 23rd.
There are no more High Day Feasts until Fall after Shavuot. We will contact you again with the dates if you indicate interest in participating.
Shalom

When is the first day of the first month of the year?

When is the first day of the first month of the year?
The only answer to the question we care about is Yahweh's answer. The following explains His answer to this question.
King James Bible Exodus 12:1-2And YAHWEH spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt saying,
This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.
Which month?
King James Bible Exodus 11:10And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh: and Yahweh hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go out of his land.
It was the time they were let out of Egypt. The time in which they kept the Passover. We also get a clue when we are told about the hail storm plague.
Nehemiah Gordon tells us the following:
Abib indicates a stage in the development of the barley crops. This is clear from Ex 9:31-32 which describes the devastation caused by the plague of hail:
"And the flax and the barley were smitten, because the barley was Abib and the flax was Giv'ol. And the wheat and the spelt were not smitten because they were dark (Afilot)."
The above passage relates that the barley crops were destroyed by the hail while the wheat and spelt were not damaged.
We are commanded in Ex 23:15
"You will keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread; seven days you will eat unleavened bread, as I have commanded you, at the time of the month of the Abib, because in it you went out of Egypt."

The second way we figure out if it is the first day of the first month of Yahweh’s year is, we need to look for the new moon also.
The period between one year and the next is either 12 or 13 lunar months, so we must know the season and what to look for, but it is simple enough that a child can do it! No complicated mathematical calculations must be made, or scientific experimentation done, but a simple “look and see” approach is given by Yahweh.
So, to simplify it: The new year begins with the first New Moon after the barley in Israel reaches the stage in its ripeness called Abib.
Yahweh has made it possible, through the use of telephones, texting and the internet, so that we here in America, in these latter days, can know almost in the same instant that Israel knows, whether the barley is Aviv or not!
