1st Chodesh

Elohim's ways are not man's ways. We invite you to celebrate this New Year Elohim's way. Join us and return to the ancient paths. 


Thus says יְהוָה : “Stand in the roads and look. Ask for the ancient paths— where the good way is—and walk in it. Then you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We won’t walk in it.’

                                                                 Jeremiah 6:16

1st Chodesh or 13th?

The first chodesh of 2024 has some interesting points we would like to discuss.

First, not everyone is accepting this as the 1st chodesh. Notice that the right-hand column is listed as Adar II. This has been the Rabbinic tradition to add a 13th month in order to arrive at Nisan so that it comes under the sign of The Ram. True, this WAS the the 1st chodesh in the sign of the Ram in the days of the Exodus, 1446 BC. But because of the progression of the equinoxes over these thousands of years, the 1st chodesh is now in the sign of The Fishes. Scripture gives us other markers to establish when the 1st chodesh begins. We highly recommend the most excellent work of Brian Hoeck on Facebook. Not only is it the opinion of some in Israel doing the inspections of the the barley for being ready but other signs all around Israel.

We will be beginning the year on March 11th. It is noteworthy to mention that others like Brian Hoeck are observing similar hours. We will be blowing the shofar "in" the day, high noon on March 11th, when the sun will be in the two straight and narrow paths, while others will begin their "day" at sunset. While we are just a few hours apart on the 1st day we are in union on the evening of Pesach, Feast of First Fruits, and Shavuot/Pentecost.  

Secondly the Christian observance of Easter falls on March 31st. According to the Nicaean Ecumenical Council of 325 AD, Easter should be celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the Spring (Vernal) Equinox.  Please note no Jewish representatives were invited to attend. This day also falls on the day of The Wave Offering, which is found in scripture.

Wave Offerings were part of the Peace Offering, which is one of the five Offerings we read about in the book of Leviticus. (The five types of Levitical Offerings were the Burnt Offering, the Meat Offering, the Peace Offering, the Sin Offering, and the Trespass Offering.) The Wave Offering receives its name from the motion used when the priest presented the Wave Offering in a waving type motion. The sacrifice was held in the offerer’s hands, with the priest’s hands underneath the offerer’s. It was waved forward toward the altar and then backward from the altar–giving it to the Lord and then receiving it back from Him as a gift to the priest. The Peace Offering was the only offering in which the donor received back a portion of the sacrifice to eat himself. Considering that Revelation 7:3 discusses the winds that are waiting for the sign to blow, the seas to wave, we need to take a good look at the upcoming Total Solar Eclipse.

The Nineveh Eclipse
We're calling this The Nineveh Eclipse. The sun is in the sign of The Fishes all this chodesh. The moon joins the sun above The Whale on April 8th. Jonah also found himself above the whale until he was tossed overboard. Looking at the spreadsheet above you'll notice it hits on the 29th day of the chodesh. Biblically 29 has a lot of "cut-offs" associated with it.  It also falls on the 9th day of the Omer count.  The Shabbat during Matzot, is the reading and practice of Karaite Jews. The number 9 has the meaning of judgement. We are taking this sign very seriously. So, while some might be thrilled with the sight, we are thoughtfully deciding when and how long to fast just as the people in Nineveh did. Something to think about.  For more details go to Part 1 on The Blog page. There is so much more.
