Abba YHVH, in His greatness, has given us seven festivals to celebrate throughout the year. These are His appointed times. We are, in this study, going to focus on the practical observation of the feasts of Pesach and Unleavened bread. In Ex 12:2-29 we find the instructions for the very first time these feasts were to be observed. These were given to Moses by YHVH before the exodus out of Egypt. Are all these instructions applicable to us? Do we have to slaughter a lamb and apply the blood to the doorposts? What does our Father desire from us in the observation of these feasts?
During this time of year we hear a lot of discussions as to whether or not we should join in the celebration of Rosh haShanah (Head of the new Year). We all know that Exodus 12:2 specifically tells us that the beginning of the year is in Aviv (spring time). Yet, we hear some very convincing tales as to why the Scriptures actually allows for more than one new year (like we have today – calendar year, fiscal year, school year, etc…) In this article I will proof to you that the Scriptures only refer to one new year and it is not Rosh haShanah on 1 Tishri!
