1 And Yahweh spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year
after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying,
2 Let the children of Israel also keep the passover at its appointed season.
3 In the fourteenth day of this month, at evening, you
shall keep it in its appointed season: according to all the rites of it, and according to all the ceremonies thereof, shall
you keep it.
4 And Moses spoke to the children of Israel, that they should keep the passover.
5 And they kept the passover
on the fourteenth day of the first month at evening in the wilderness of Sinai: according to all that Yahweh commanded Moses,
so did the children of Israel.
Defiled In The Appointed
Season, What Happens?
there were certain men, who were defiled by the dead body of a man, that they could not keep the passover on that day: and
they came before Moses and before Aaron on that day:
7 And those men said to him, We are defiled by the dead body of
a man: wherefore are we kept back, that we may not offer an offering of Yahweh in its appointed season among the children
Moses said to them, Stand still, and I will hear what Yahweh will command concerning you.
Postponement Only In
Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
10 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, If any man of you or of your posterity shall be unclean by reason
of dead body, or be in a journey afar off, yet he shall keep the passover to Yahweh.
11 The fourteenth day of the second month at evening they shall
keep it, and eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.
12 They shall leave none of it to the morning, nor break any bone
of it: according to all the ordinances of the passover they shall keep it.
Other Reason for Non-Observance Is No Excuse
the man that is clean, and is not in a journey, and forbears to keep the passover, even the same soul shall be cut off from
among his people: because he brought not the offering of Yahweh in its appointed season, that man shall bear his sin.
This Was Only In The
Case of an Entire Nation
1 And Hezekiah sent to all Israel
and Judah, and wrote letters also to Ephraim and Manasseh, that they should
come to the house of Yahweh at Jerusalem, to keep the Passover to Yahweh Elohim of Israel.
2 For the king had taken counsel, and his princes, and all the
congregation in Jerusalem, to keep the passover in the second
3 For they could not keep it at that time, because the priests
had not sanctified themselves sufficiently, neither had the people gathered themselves together to Jerusalem.
14 And they arose and took away the altars that were in Jerusalem, and all the altars for incense took they away, and cast them
into the brook Kidron.
15 Then they killed the passover on the fourteenth day of the second
month: and the priests and the Levites were ashamed, and sanctified themselves, and brought in the burned offerings into the
house of Yahweh.
Strive For the First
for the Bible given reasons for a postponement, let’s strive for Passover at the appointed time, in the first month,
purging out all leaven (sinful practises including all dogmas NOT condoned in the Bible)!
1 Corinthians 11:
23 For I have received of the Master that which also I delivered to you, That the Sovereign Yahshua
the same night in which He was betrayed took bread:
24 And when He had given thanks, He broke it, and said, Take, eat:
this is My body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of Me.
25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when He had supped,
saying, This cup is the new testament in My blood: this do you, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.
26 For as often as you eat this bread, and drink this cup, you
do show the Master’s death till He come.
27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup
of the master, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Master.
28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread,
and drink of that cup.
29 For he that eats and drinks unworthily, eats and drink damnation
to himself, not discerning the Master’s body.
1 Corinthians 5:
7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that you may be a new lump,
as you are unleavened. For even [the] Messiah our passover is sacrificed for us.
Is the First Month?
Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible reveals at #24 that the word Abib used in the Bible
in reference to the first month of the year is a Hebrew word, meaning, “to be tender; green,
i.e. a young ear of grain…green ears of corn.” It is this same Hebrew word which is translated “ear” in Ex. 9. If we read this chapter carefully, we’ll find that the “barley was in the ear” at the time hail was being rained down upon Egypt.
The period of time from the hail in chapter 9, up until the end of chapter 11, may have not consisted of an entire week and
Moses & Aaron is being shown in chapter 12 which new moon begins the first month. From what Moses himself instructed in
Deut. 16:1, we get the picture that what Yahweh was even most of all saying to Moses and Aaron forty years earlier in Exodus
12, is that, the new moon we are to begin the first month with, is the one appearing at the time the ear of the maturing barley corn/grain is GREEN.
Barley grows in the early of spring as winter ends and is by then maturing by the
time the new moon ALWAYS becoming visible during that stage of the barley corn/grain in the GREEN ear makes its appearing.
The criteria by which to know which new moon to begin the first month of the year
with, is the barley green
ears of corn/grain. This was what Moses and Aaron understood to have been instructed in Ex. 12:2 and in turn, Moses so instructed
the Israelites almost forty years later in Deut. 16:1.
When In the Abib First
Upon acknowledging the
ordained criteria as to how to go about establishing the CORRECT beginning of the CORRECT first month of the year, in the
Bible way, we see in the same Exodus 12 that Moses and Aaron were being carefully instructed as to what the ANNUAL activities
during the lunar first month of the year are to be.
Moses in turn instructs almost forty years later in Deuteronomy
16 that we are to
“observe (look, watch for) the month (moon, new moon) of (at the time there is) Abib ([barley]
green ears of [maturing] corn/grain) and keep the passover to Yahweh your Elohim…” In Exodus 12, Leviticus 23 and
Numbers 28-29 including some other passages of Scripture, instructions are that Passover must be commemorated (after sunset
of the lunar 13th day) in the 14th evening of the moon that is being declared from Heaven as being the CORRECT first month
of the year. This occurs during the Roman calendar month of March/April, in the early of spring, at the time of the barley
Abib in Israel (Isaiah 2:3; Micah
Not only during the Bible defined Abib lunar CORRECT first month
of the year, in the early of spring, are compulsory observances commanded at that time of year, but also at other times in
the year are we compulsory expected to celebrate Bible commanded observances other than only in the Abib first month during March/April.
Besides the weekly Sabbath commanded to be observed on the seventh day (Ex. 16;
20; 31; Neh. 13; Heb. 4), there is also the visible new moon CORRECT beginning of each month celebration (Num. 28:11-15),
the three times in
the year celebrations comprising of seven ANNUAL Sabbaths, the every seventh year Sabbath and fiftieth year Jubilee observances that is being mandated of us, all being carefully
listed for us in Ex. 12, 13, 23, 34, Num. 28-29, Lev. 23, 25 and Deut. 16 (Isa. 66:23; Col. 2:16-17).
Only the Circumcised
Back under the Old Covenant,
only the circumcised were being allowed to partake of the Passover then (Ex. 12:43-45, 47-49).
In this New Covenant era, circumcision is that of the heart (Deut.
10:16; 30:6; Rom. 2:25-29; 1 Cor. 7:18-19; Gal. 5:6; 6:15; Col. 2:11-13; 3:1-11), performed by way of true repentance,
conversion and baptism in the name of our Creating Savior, YAHSHUA (Acts 2:37-39; 3:19; 2 Cor. 5:17).
