White Passover in Israel!

Sunday, April 21, 2019

Breaking news from Jerusalem:

Fake wavesheaf day disaster with rain and 30 degrees Fahrenheit below the average for the day!

The Elohim have made Their point!

Sabbath April 14, 2019

Happy Sabbath to all,

Bridget and Brenda updated the FOT locations today. The Eastern Canada site has been narrowed down to Mont Tremblant in Quebec. Beautiful area north of Montreal and northeast of Ottawa in the Laurentian Mountains.

April 9, 2019

Hi Folks,

We hope your count to Pentecost/Feast of Weeks is going well.

Also hope you can use the information we have started posting in the Plan of Salvation study under that heading in the Publications tab.

March 20, 2019

The videos from yesterday have been re-posted with better resolution...check out the Abib Reports Page

March 19, 2019

Brian made another trip to Israel...check out the Abib Reports Page for an irrefutable new Abib Report and a bunch of videos.

Hi Folks,

We will be periodically updating the Abib Report page with relevant information for the next 5 days for your use in your evaluation. Some have told us they have not taken a final position as to the start of the year. Many are asking for us to clarify our part in the Abib Calendar, for some are revising the body of Messiah's institution of it, and the rules for it as established prior to 2002.

We will be addressing that today in the second half of our Zoom Presentation around 1:45-2:00 PM Eastern Time Zone.

The truth shall set you free!

March 9, 2019 - Happy New Year!

We just posted the Abib Summation Report from this year's barley inspections.  Hope all had a beautiful Sabbath and have a wonderful "Month of Abib" to come.

Hi Folks,

Our final inspection report is on the abib reporting page. We will add a summation sometime Sunday after we get home.

March 4, 2019

Hi Folks,

We added the first 2019 inspection report from the Land to our Abib Reports page.

March 2, 2019

Hi Folks,

We have added an update to the Abib Reports Page with some Israeli Metrological Society rain data.

Hi Folks,

We have added an update to the Abib Report Page.

Hi Folks,

We are hoping things are well with you all. We will be hosting a zoom meeting Sabbath February 16 at 1 PM eastern time dealing with the conditions to date for the upcoming aviv search the first week of March. The first sharav conditions should be taking place this week in Israel. With such an early opportunity for a March 8th or 9th start of the new year we will probably need a second sharav event around the 21st of this month. That will most likely be necessary for those who use Leviticus 2:14 maturity by the end of the 12th month.

We will be taking questions at some point in the presentation.

Today the body of Christ/Messiah and the household of Father had triplets born into them. Three new sisters in the faith: Sara, Teresa, and Aubrey. We thank our Father for continuing to call other brethren to help with the completing of the number of the Bride. We are at the 11th hour and many are falling from the truth of their calling or going asleep as to the urgency of sustaining a continuous and intimate relationship with our Savior/Husband.

Praise the Elohim, both Father and Son.

There will be a zoom presentation next Sabbath October 20th. Please see the Zoom Page for the subject matter and time.

We have updated the Abib Report Page as to some policy changes and dates for the first inspection reports being posted. It is a wonderful thing to wait on our Creators to show us what They want as to the appointed times of meeting with Them.

Hi Folks,

There have been no credible new moon reports in the region of Jerusalem today. As discussed with some brethren earlier it was almost certain it would not be seen with 60% plus humidity which sends up a big plume of haze over the Mediterranean Sea. With such a low altitude of the moon that spelled a no see situation. There was a chance it could have been seen from the North of the country for those of you who use the entirety of Israel but there were atmospheric conditions there of their own.

Linda and I will be observing the Feast of trumpets starting sunset tomorrow night, Tuesday September 11th.

Hope you all have a wonderful festival season.

Hi Folks,

Hope all are well. There are lots of inquiries to the feast of Tabernacles location in Fort Collins. We have finalized plans for the facility and are able to handle a pretty big crowd. Fifty some adults and a dozen and a half kids are signed up. As I mentioned many more contemplating the site.

Happy Sabbath to all.


Brian and Linda 

Chanse, Sara and the boys finally welcome their new baby girl...Blakely Rae.  We can't wait to meet her at the Feast of Tabernacles this fall!!

June 9th, 2018

We have had reports from our Pacific coast brethren that the dates for the Feasts we posted are showing up 1 day off.  Those in central and eastern timezones are reporting them as correct.  We have submitted a trouble ticket with our website host to hopefully get this resolved soon.  As of June 16th, this issue was resolved.

The 7th day of UB study is available on the Recordings page

Hi Folks,

We have added the video study from the first day of UB on the Recordings page. It is titled: The Feast of Unleavened Bread and our walk to Glory.

Happy Biblical New Year to those of you who are keeping the Abib based Calendar.

For planning purposes for those wishing to attend:


We are planning on having a Feast of Tabernacles site in Fort Collins Colorado this year. Bridget and Brenda are working on the venue at present. We will be keeping the dates of the Abib Calendar as well as accommodating those who keep the Rabbinical dates; for many families have some in each observance. We will be posting the particulars soon. Family is forever!

Hi Folks,

We have added a new article to the studies page; Who are we?

January 29, 2018

Hi Folks, We have put an abib update on the Aviv Search page. Just click it to view.

We have added a new study to the studies page: The Oneness of the Godhead/Elohim and its Purpose for the Plan of Salvation for Man. We will be adding more studies and transcripts from the Days of Unleavened Bread gathering and the FOT in the next few months.

We hope you all had a safe and wonderful Feast of Tabernacles/Ingathering and 8th Day. We certainly did!

We have added the potential dates for the festivals of the first and 7th months for 2018.

Happy Sabbath!

Hi Folks,

Everything is set for the FOT in Rapid City, South Dakota. If you are planning on attending let us know numbers. We have an option to reserve an adjacent meeting room.


Hi Folks,

Feast fever of the 7th month is growing. We are working on being able to broadcast services each day. If you are interested in listening or viewing let us know. Not sure of what medium we will be using as of yet.

Also we have updated the study: The 7 Church's, 7 Days of Unleavened Bread, and 7 Weeks Journey to Pentecost.

We hope everyone is anticipating the upcoming Feasts of the 7th month. Not long now! Rapid City here we come.

We have added an extensive update to the study; "The Two Covenants and the First Resurrection." It can be obtained from the studies page.

Keep safe in the Lord/Yehovah.

We have added Rebecca's witness to the year from Abib Inspections to Pentecost/Shauvot on the Aviv Search Page.

Hi Folks,


We hope you had a wonderful Passover/UB season. No doubt many of you are observing the count to Pentecost.

Linda and I had an exceptional Passover and 7 days of UB in Sun River Oregon with many families and individuals in the body. After being gone for three weeks there is lots to catch up on here in Kendall.

We have all decided to meet in Rapid City, South Dakota for the Feast of Tabernacles this year. If any of you folks are interested in attending please let us know. We will not set a meeting hall location until we have a better handle on the numbers who will be present.

Rapid City’s surrounding area is a family adventure location, full of historical and natural treasures. Any type of housing or camping venues are available from mountain homes, hotel singles doubles and suites, to camping of every sort imaginable.

As is our habit at such appointed festivals we will conduct bible studies each day which are always interactive. These are wonderful opportunities to hear from all four corners of the field; with the caveat that all things are done decently and in order. The fellowship never seems to end. Many of us share housing and such and from the moment folks get up it starts. Linda and I love to hike and Custer State Park is full of opportunities as well as all the wests wildlife roaming around. There is a large indoor water park located at one of the Marriott Hotels in Town which is available to all whether staying in their facility or not for a small fee.

We are a bunch of brethren who like to rejoice at the feasts before the Lord/Yehovah. The more children the merrier!

Once we have a rough idea of numbers we will secure a meeting hall.

All suggestions are welcomed as to venue and functions.

You can contact us at or


Brian and Linda

Hi Folks!

We have added an updated version of the Calendar of God/Elohim on the Studies Page.

To those of you who follow the same pattern as we do Happy new year at sunset today.

Hi Folks, We have added a new Abib update to the festival page today.

March 14, 2017

Hi Folks!  We have added an update to the Aviv Search page with an invitation to keep the Passover/UB season with a bunch of us out is Oregon. If you are interested after reading the information please contact us at

Brian and Linda

We have added a new report to the Aviv Search Page. 

We have added the first of our daily reports to the Aviv Search page.

We have added a new abib update to the Aviv Search page.

February 2, 2017

Hi Folks,

We hope things are well with you all. We have added an abib update on the Aviv Search page.

January 27, 2017

Hi Folks,

We have added an update to the Atonement study on the Studies Page. It is 35 pages in length, but covers many of the evidences of our belief on this subject. We hope it can be of use to you.

We are keeping a very close eye on the meteorological conditions in Israel. Lots of mixed signals to date. We will send out a report prior to leaving for Israel.

Keep safe in the Lord/Yehovah!

January 7, 2017

Hi Folks,

We hope things are well with you all and that you are keeping safe in the Lord/Yehovah. As you can see we have a new website and are working on adding to it. As most of you know I am not a computer type guy. Katie did a nice job setting up the site and teaching me how to manage it to date.

A note of interest to some of you is my computer which I did all my brethren related work on died a week or so ago. No life left in the hard drive I am told and thus no resurrecting any data. 8 months or so ago I removed a little gizmo from the front of it which I now know was a mistake. Thus I have backup until then but not after that. The abib list is gone except for a copy that was on the backup until that time. So, if you were put on the list within the last year you may not be on the copy I have so if you would still like to be included in it send me your email address.

I will probably be sending out or posting an abib update shortly. Lots happening in Israel as to weather, and more importantly in specific areas of barley inspections.

Hope you have a wonderful Sabbath rest.

Brian and Linda

December 17, 2016

Hi Folks, we have updated our "Atonement: A Day of Separation" article on the studies page clearly pointing out from scripture, scriptural patterns, and creation that only one of the two goats represents Christ/Messiah on Atonement.

November 26, 2016

Hi Folks. Linda and I hope you are all doing well and keeping safe in the Lord/Yehovah. We have been having many issues with the website host we use, as some of you have experienced. The list is lengthy; such as specific articles disappearing, whole pages disappearing, articles linked to the host advertisements, etc. We are keeping up with them as they arise but if you see an issue please email us at:

We will be providing a new website in the near future. It is a work in progress.

Happy Sabbath!

October 17, 2016

Hi Folks. We have added a new (short) study to the studies page entitled: The Plan from the Beginning. We have also placed the two scenarios for the start of next year and the respective dates on the Feast page.

On another note; we are told by our website company that we need to switch to a new format and such. As many of you know I am not the computer guy but I will keep you posted. Of course if the new site format pops up you will know first hand about the change.

September 12, 2016

Dear Brethren, I have attached a response to Nehemia's most recent attack on the body of Christ/Messiah. Click it to open.

My Response. Let no man deceive you!!!

September 10, 2016

Hi Folks. We have added Rebecca Biderman's testimony as to the results and activities of her search for the start of the Biblical year in Israel. She not only collected the evidence she personally needed for the start of it, but also followed it through past the barley harvest to the wheat harvest in the land. For those of you who do not know Becca she is a devout member of the body of Christ/Messiah and has recently suffered for that from others in the land who she regarded as friends.

She is also the only experienced new moon observer in Israel to sight the first crescent on Friday September 2 after sunset. We hope you find her personal testimony of value and of encouragement. It can be found on the Studies Page under the heading of Calendar related studies and on the Aviv Search Page.

We have also added a post on an unfortunate development with one of the sites believers go to for aviv/new moon information and interaction. It is found on the Aviv Search page.

September 3, 2016

The article What is the body of Christ/Messiah and how does it Function? is once again available on the site on the Studies Page.

September 2, 2016

The New Moon (first Crescent) was seen by our sister in the Faith; Rebecca Biderman at 7:30 PM just prior to it passing beyond the horizon. Casandra Conroy was with her for a second witness if you require one other than the holy spirit and Becca. Picture on Festival Date page.

For those of you on the early calendar Happy Feast of Trumpets.

August 27, 2016

Hi Folks. There are several brethren in Jerusalem this coming Friday evening (September 2) who will be looking for the first crescent for those of us who use that criteria and that location. We will send out an update via the abib list once we receive any positive news as to a sighting. There will be many others there as well who will also be reporting via their normal pathways. 

We have also updated the article: Can we be Worthy.

June 6, 2016

We have updated our article entitled: Two Leavened Loaves or Two Lambs; which represents the Bride of Christ on Pentecost? We hope you can find it of value.

May 8, 2016

Hi Folks, we have added an article about the wheat harvest underway at this time.

May 7, 2016

Its official! The IMS has reported on the monthly temperatures for February, March, and April in Israel and most importantly in the 3 major grain growing regions: the Coastal Plain, Negev, and Jezreel Valley. All have set new monthly average records for heat. There is no doubt as to when the biblical year started this year. It was after sunset on March 10th. Our Creator who controls the weather has made it abundantly clear. That certainly places the festivals of the 7th month in September.

April 30, 2016

Hi Folks, we have added a new study to the Studies Page and the Aviv Search Page. It is titled: The Error of Cain and Jeroboam" and deals with some aspects of this years calendar controversies.

April 10, 2016

We have added some information for the September FOT on the Aviv Search Page and the Feast Page.

April 2, 2016

We have added a new update to the Aviv Search page.

March 24, 2016

Hi Folks, we have placed our final update on the Aviv Search Page for those who are asking for more information and pictures. Happy feast of UB.

Brian and Linda 

March 22, 2016

Hi Folks, we have added a new update to the Aviv Search Page.

March 3, 2016

We have updated the English and Hebrew Names Versions of the Abib Booklets located on the Studies Page (at the bottom of the page). We will attempt to update the Spanish Version after our return from Israel this year.

February 21, 2016

We have added some new info on the Aviv Search page as to a recorded study, possible FOT, and the weather in Israel.

February 18, 2016

Hi Folks; We have been experiencing a lot of contacts from new people from all over the world as well as at home here in the US. If I have not gotten back to you please contact me again in case I have inadvertently missed your email or it got by me in spam. This is a very busy time of year for us with work (construction) and with the upcoming trip to Israel. Also there have been some difficulty responding to some emails from South Africa while others work well. If you are located there and have not heard back from us please send again for some replies by us are coming back undeliverable once sent.

Hope you have a good close to the week and a good Sabbath rest.

Brian and Linda

February 17, 2016

Dear Brethren,

Janet Poland has written to update us as to John Evans condition since the accident several months back in which he was hospitalized and his dear friend and our brother in Christ/Messiah Tony Steel was killed. John is at home now and recovering physically. If you could find the time to drop him an email he would no doubt be very appreciative. If you have ever spent any time at home recovering you know how the hours pass with the hope of hearing a friendly word and such. His email address is;

February 15, 2016

Hi Folks,

I have  been invited to speak about the scriptural importance of abib to my belief system and why I and others do what we do in Israel each year. Don has supplied me with a link to the Friday night (19th) presentation. It starts at 8 pm central U.S. time.


February 13, 2016

We have added an abib update to the Aviv Search page.

Brian and Linda
