The Almighty Elohim is such an orderly and meticulous God! He did not Just give the commandment to Israel to make April the first month of our years but He also commanded nature, making spring the first of four seasons. Before we examine the logic behind spring being the first season, let us first establish through the scriptures that April is the first month of the year for Israelites; Blacks, Hispanics and Native Americans.
Deuteronomy 16:1, Observe the month of Abib, and keep the Passover unto the LORD thy God: for in the month of Abib the LORD thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night.
Abib KJV Dictionary Definition:
A’BIB, n. Heb. swelling, protuberant. To produce the first or early fruit; a full grown ear of corn.
The first month of the Jewish ecclesiastical year, called also Nisan. It begins at the spring equinox, and answers to the latter part of March and beginning of April. Its name is derived from the full growth of wheat in Egypt, which took place anciently, as it does now, at that season.
Exodus 12:1-3, “And the LORD 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.Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:”
Prior to the destruction of Israel 70 – 63 BC, months were acknowledged and recorded according to the full moon (Genesis 1:14, Psalms 81:3), where a full moon appears on the first day of each month. After the destruction, Israelites were forced to go against everything they were commanded by the Most High to do. Think it not strange however, that the Lord warned in Daniel chapter seven that Esau’s seed would defile the earth.
And he (descendant of Esau) shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
The words I typed in bold from the bible verse above all gave rise to the following:
• The use of science to try and disprove biblical events like the parting of the Red Sea; the great flood, the plagues of Egypt and other biblical events.
• The changing of the Sabbath from the seventh to the first day of the week (Genesis 2:2-3).
• Lets get this right, the Sub-Saharan and Trans-Atlantic Slave Trades were implemented to scatter and destroy the minds of the Israelites (Deuteronomy 28:68). That (slavery) and the current oppression of the descendants of those slave trades are the wearing out of the saints (Psalms 148:14).
• A day was previously from sundown/evening to sundown/evening, but Edom decided it should be midnight to midnight (Genesis 1:5). They also decided that the year should no longer begin in April/Abib/Nisan but Tevet/January, and have renamed the days and month to the names of their gods and goddesses and even planets.
Sunday – the sun/ Monday – the moon/ Tuesday – Tyr the sin of Woden-god of war/ Wednesday – Woden/ Thursday – Thor/ Friday – Frigga-Woden’s wife.
January – god of doors/ February – Romans month of purification and sacrifice/ March – god of war/ April – Open-where plant open leaves/ May – goddess of growth/ June – queen of the gods/ July – Julius Caesar-ruler of Rome/ August – Agustus-ruler of Rome/ September to December were numbers 9-12.
Don’t you find it interesting that even after going through so much to change things around that Esau still kept the original year, April to March, and called it fiscal year? Do you not take some time out to observe and notice that even nature, which obeys God, agrees that April is the first month? April’s Fool Day came into exsistence because a remnant of our ancestors remained faithful to the way of the Lord and continued celebrating New Year in April, hence they were labelled April’s Fool.
The annual cycle of nature
Spring is where life starts. Plants grow, seeds germinate and withered branches get new life and bounces back to its former glory. Then comes summer with a lot of sunshine to help mature and ripen those fruits which grow on those newly sprung branches. Fall creeps in to remind the plants that its time to be done with the old and to prepare for the new and so the plant shed their leaves and remaining fruits. Now we have a lot of rotting fruits and dried leaves on the ground Winter , the period of death, comes with cold temperatures and moisture which will aid in the decay of fallen vegetation – turning it all into manure which sustains the trees during winter and prepares them for spring again.
Is it not very questionable that Edom would choose the season of death to be the start of the year? Or that they would go against the scriptures and institute a new Sabbath?
Regardless of the changes that were made and continues to be made the saints of God will not be deceived. Israel! Remember Jesus told us of him who will exalt himself above all as if he is a God. They who lead space explorations, medicine, technology, weaponry and all the things the world need and run to him for, thinks he is God because of all his accomplishments 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 and 2:9-10.
Israel Our new year is April, and we celebrate with seven days of The Passover Feasts. Do not allow the manipulation of time and laws to allow us to buy into the ways of the heathen (Proverbs 3:31).
