2020 Feast Dates
We travel to the Land of Israel just prior to the end of the 12th Biblical month each year to conduct inspections for Leviticus 2:14 stage barley to be available to harvest for a wavesheaf offering by the upcoming 10th day of the next month. This would give the Levites who were scattered across the entire Land, in 48 cities, time to reach Jerusalem and the Temple with potential first of the firstfruits barley offerings. If it will not be, we intercalate a month to give it more time to mature. We observe all the biblical criteria to discerning the start of the biblical year, i.e. the first month Abib. There are a lot of signs mentioned in scripture which we have addressed often in the reports and studies in addition to inspecting barley, for they are all placed in creation to tell us when the turn of the year is, from winter to summer, in the Promised Land. Reports of our findings are posted on the Abib Report Page.
Based on our experiences in the Land each year inspecting for the first barley to be ripe after the end of the 12th lunar month we have been able to establish many Abib Calendar patterns. Most of you have read them time and time again as we post them in our inspection reports from year to year.
Two very important ones are simple to understand:
First, if we have two successive 12-month years we will have an intercalated year following them. Such was the case for 2019. The pattern started in 2008, and continued with 2011, 2014, and 2017.
The second is that we will always have a normal year following an intercalated year. Once again, the pattern in the Abib Calendar of Yehovah has been in place since 2004; then 2006, 2009, 2012, 2015, and 2018.
With this understanding in place we can have a little fun while we are waiting on our Elohim to provide us with all the evidences to what they have decided will be the turn of the year in the Land from Winter to Summer for 2020 and 2021.
2020 will most likely be an intercalated year with Wednesday February 26 being the first day of an added 13th month, thus the following.
All days start from sunset the previous evening.
New Year: Thursday, March 26th
Passover: Wednesday, April 8th
Unleavened Bread: Thursday, April 9 through Wednesday the 15th
Wavesheaf: Sunday, April 12th
Pentecost/Weeks: Sunday, May 31
Based on the 7th month sighting of the new moon:
Trumpets: Saturday, September 19th
Atonement: Monday, September 28th
Feast of Tabernacles: Saturday, October 3rd through Friday the 9th
Last Great Day/Eighth Day: Saturday, October 10th
Let’s see what happens. This is good practice for being able to do all of this ourselves. Go through the posted potential new moons to make an attempt to figure out the potential new year and the annual rehearsals of Yehovah. Use the patterns we have established, to work with the lunar cycles.
Someday you may have to do it yourself, so why not start learning to do it now if you don’t already know how. Practice is a good way of learning.
