Sabbath 14th May 2010 is New-Moon-Day-1 of the Bible 3rd Month (Moon) Sivan

Greetings dear all!
 
I trust that those of us who observed Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread at the timing of the availability of the barley green ears of corn/grain in Israel did find Passover and the solemnity that goes with it to be quite inspiring in commemoration of our Savior's death and that the Feast of Unleavened Bread had indeed worth being observed with great retrospection of our spirituality with our Creator, ensuring that the doctrines we hold and teach to others are indeed the exact lifestyle of our Creator as stipulated in His Word according to which He commands us to live if so be we wish not to be made victims of His pending wrath unto eternal destruction in the lake of fire along with Satan the Devil and his demonic angels.
   Please find my mobile phone pictures of both those observances attached. I trust the amount attached are sufficient and sufficiently reflects our observance of both these occasions here in Dominica. Only that, you might find the pics of our observance of the Feast of Unleavened Bread are way fewer and insufficient compare to the amount of pics that I photographed on our observance of Passover available and attached with this mailing.
   Twenty-five (25) of us (ten brothers and fifteen sisters) who have been immersed in our Savior's saving name Yahshua partook of the Passover emblems of His body and blood on Monday evening 29th March 2010 after the sunset-beginning of the 14th day of the Bible first month (moon) Abib.
   An evening worship service was held on each night of the seven days of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, beginning with Tuesday evening 30th March and ending with Monday evening 5th April 2010.
   Daylight worship services during the seven days of unleavened bread feasting were on Wednesday 31st March in observance of the annual Sabbath first day of the feast, Saturday 3rd April in observance of the regular weekly seventh day Sabbath and Tuesday 6th April 2010 in observance of the annual Sabbath seventh/last day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
   The first day of the week that occurs during the Feast of Unleavened Bread had always been a special time in the lives of ancient Israel who lived under the old covenant. According to Leviticus 23, it was not until the arrival of that first day of the week during this feast that ancient Israel could have begin to harvest from their barley crop for their livelihood not until after they had brought a sheaf of their barley crop to the priest to be waved on their behalf to our Creator Yahweh on that same first day of the week during this feast. Their first harvesting of the new barley crop at each spring, in other words, was to have been for an offering to Yahweh before they could have done any harvesting for their own consumption and livelihood.
   Included in this first day of the week occasion during the Feast of Unleavened Bread was the same day with which the fifty days count had to be started to observe the Sabbath Feast of Weeks/Harvest/First Fruits on the fiftieth day which, when it had arrived, on a first day of the week, the disciples were all in one accord in one place in observance of this annual Sabbath fiftieth day.
   "And you shall count to you from the morrow after the [weekly] sabbath, from the [first] day [of the week] that you brought the sheaf of the [barley] wave offering [during the feast of unleavened bread], seven [weekly] sabbaths shall be complete: Even to the morrow after the seventh [weekly] sabbath shall you number fifty days; and you shall offer a new meat offering [of the wheat crop harvest] to Yahweh. And you shall proclaim on the selfsame [fiftieth] day, that it may be a holy convocation (worship service gathering) to you: you shall do no servile work therein: it shall be a statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations" (Leviticus 23:15-16, 21).
   Was it in an effort to hide this fact from the reader why the premier translators of the Bible into the English language left the word Pentecost (meaning count fifty, fifty, fiftieth day from the Greek word pentekoste) untranslated than to had translate Acts 2:1 thus, "And when the fiftieth day was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place," lest the English reader, cross referencing this translation with where this same fiftieth day is commanded in Leviticus 23, would have observed that this Sabbath fiftieth day feast commanded in the Old Testament is still binding down even into this new covenant era and was not abolished at all through our Savior's death since that the disciples were still observing it even after our Savior is being ascended back into heaven?
   As we continued our nightly services during the Feast of Unleavened Bread, after Sabbath sunset 3rd April was no exception, especially that it was the evening when the wave sheaf was to have been offered anciently. It is understood that this was the timing on the first day of the week during the Feast of Unleavened Bread for the Old Testament wave sheaf offering beginning the count to Pentecost during which self same timing of the first day of the week during the 7-day Feast of Unleavened Bread that our Savior's first and wave sheaf ascension to heaven occurred after being resurrected.
   He could not have allowed anyone to touch or hold on to Him until after that first ascension and wave sheaf presentation of Himself to His Father in Heaven.
   Upon returning back to earth from that mission was only when He could have permitted Himself to being touched and handled later that same first day of the week on which a sheaf of the barley was had to be waved by the priest to Yahweh before His death and resurrection.
   Yahshua being that perfect wave sheaf now in place, we ensured that this occasion was highlighted throughout that particular evening service during the feast as is our custom, as did the Apostle Paul with the disciples in Acts 20, marking the beginning of the fifty days count to the Bible commanded annual Pentecost (fiftieth day) Sabbath Feast of Weeks/Harvest/First Fruits, there from.
   Before arriving to this annual Sabbath fiftieth day celebration, there is one more new moon that we must have to observe and it is the new moon marking the beginning of the Bible third month (moon) during which the said Sabbath fiftieth day will this year 2010 be arrived at and celebrated on Sunday 23rd May the lunar ninth day here in the North America region.
   That one more new moon that we must have to observe before the arrival of the said annual Sabbath fiftieth day becomes visible this Friday (Sabbath) evening 14th May 2010 throughout U.S.A. and Central America, north of here in the Caribbean and most of Canada at ease if sky is clear according to www.CrescentMoonWatch.org but could not have seen whether if it did become visible to us here in Dominica after searching for it from sunset 18:27 till 19:00 all due to cloudy sky conditions.
   The dating of Sunday 23rd May, incidentally, happens correctly to be the date indicated on the Gregorian-Roman calendar this year 2010 for the celebration of this our Creator's commanded annual Sabbath Pentecost (fiftieth day) occasion to all mankind.
   All are invited to join with us this weekly seventh day Sabbath 15th May 2010 in praise and worship in observance of as well the new-moon-first-day of this Bible third month (moon) Sivan, AND, on Pentecost (fiftieth day) Sunday 23rd May 2010 in observance of the Bible commanded annual Sabbath Feast of Weeks/Harvest/First Fruits, at: Yahweh's New Covenant Assembly, Savanne Park, Roseau, Dominica.
   Fellowship meal, following the morning worship service, on both these dates, will therefore be in a boufet style.

A spirit filled weekly Sabbath and new-moon-first-day of the Bible third month when the Holy Spirit was poured out on the day of Pentecost to all,
