*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.
