It’s time to access where we are in the Abib Growing Cycle this year and be realistic about the specifics of what’s coming down surrounding it.
The first fact we should be sharing in common is we are 7 days from the start of the 12th month. Yes, to some of you who think you’re in the 12th, 10th, etc., it is clearly the 11th at this time. The truth will set you free if you actually chew on it, swallow it, bring it up for another chew like sheep do. That is how sheep and goats get all the nutrients out of what they eat and not just some of them. They work at it; they are patient with the process doing so over and over. I would imagine some of you have never heard that they chew on their cud. If not, you have now. And as spiritual sheep we do as well.
Some of you will be looking to, or contemplating starting a new year this coming new moon based on your error starting this current one you are in. Smoke and mirrors are easy to see through if you actually have an inclination to do so. Of course, it always helps to actually have the spirit of Father and Christ working with you. Only those who have moved on from the milk of the Word will be endowed to understand the mysteries or hidden truths of the scriptures.
What we are doing here on this facebook page and website is simple. We are posting current photos (usually within a day) of what the Land of Israel really looks like in all of its winter dimensions. We do so from the start of the early rains right up to and past, the start of the Month of Abib, based on the decision of our Elohim to change from winter to summer as witnessed through Their creation. That is specifically by observing the 10 Biblical Witnesses placed in it by our Elohim to instruct us.
Yes, pictures are worth a thousand words if they are not taken out of context, just like the truth once delivered. We want you to spend the time to get very intimate with the Land as it transitions through its Elohim controlled growing cycles. In this day and age, we are without excuse as to knowing when the Month of Abib arrives. No excuses folks. You can’t depend on another to do it all for you. To think otherwise is living in the realm of babes.
If you have not established through practice, that there is only one Christ/Messiah and many false prognosticators who claim to represent Him, then you can be easily deceived by those appointed by the adversary. Many deceivers have gone out from amongst us as we are warned. We are instructed by precept upon precept; line upon line; here a little, there a little. Biblical patterns, and physical representations of the spiritual realities.
For instance: our Savior was well rooted in the rich soil that Father provided for Him to grow in. He was strong in every measure of goodness and righteousness and looked the part in everything He did. He was not weak, or wilty, or anemic; in any way, shape, or form. That is little “c” Christianity’s portrayal of Him. The little lord Jesus. So why would anyone having the spirit of Elohim in them, accept such a pathetic representation of our Wavesheaf Offering such as in the depiction of weak and anemic goat grass? Do you actually think Father would have accepted such a pathetic offering in place of a completely spiritually mature and blemish free First of the Firstfruits Wavesheaf?
Our Lord and Savior is our Passover Lamb and our Wavesheaf as the First of the Firstfruits of barley. Please spend time on that if you have not.
All of the early acceptable wild barley and domestic barley, are in the late stages of Zadok’s #4. Some are just emerging into the growth stage #5. That is a simple fact easily proven. Keep in mind the vast majority of barley is even younger than that being contained in stages #2 and #3. That serves the purpose of our Creators to keep in sync with the 7-week Biblical harvest time in the Promised Land. Not before and not after; imagine that.
Some are still asking why they can’t use goat grass barley. I feel like a broken record on that one as we have posted it often and written about it often which tells me that the ones asking have never taken the time to go back and read anything pertinent to it. They want a shortcut. There are no shortcuts to understanding the truth once delivered or the Biblical patterns pertaining to acceptable grain in the Land. We will take some time here now and point out the basic Biblical teaching why we do not use goat grass for our determinations. Its really simple.
Isaiah 28:23-26 Give ear and hear my voice, listen and hear my words. Does the plowman keep plowing all day to sow? (No, because there are more steps to be taken before sowing) Does he keep turning his soil and breaking the clods? (No, he moves onto the next step) When he has leveled its surface, does he not then sow the black cummin and scatter the cummin, plant the wheat in rows, the barley in the appointed place, and the spelt in its place? (yes, as the pattern from Elohim states) For He instructs him in right judgment/decision making, His God teaches him.”
Here is an actual NKJ translation which I have not translated to even more defining English words as it actually should be. The reason I have not is simple. Even with this translation people are without excuse as to the BIBLICALLY ACCEPTABLE PROCESS for growing grains in the Promised Land as detailed by our ELOHIM. It says there is a pattern to what is defined as agriculturally acceptable grain.
#1: the ground is to be plowed!
#2: the clods of turned dirt are to be broken down.
#3: then the ground is leveled with no big divots, etc.
#4: then the grain/seed is sown or planted in rows.
His instruction starts with saying: open your ears and listen up to what I am saying, not anyone else. Here is My righteous judgment in this, I am teaching it to you, He says! Our response should be: thank you, thank you, thank you; for working with a retch like me.
But it does not end there. The pattern goes on through the pages of the Bible. Yes, the Bible; both Covenant scriptures, not just one. Look at this being confirmed by Christ Himself.
Matthew 13:3-9 Then He spoke many things to them in parables, saying: behold, a sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds came and devoured them. Some fell on stony places, where they did not have much soil; and they immediately sprang up because they had no depth of soil. (Goat grass locations) But when the sun was up, they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered away. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up and choked them. (Goat grass locations once again) But others fell on good ground and yielded a crop: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!
Here we have a parable about the principles of where you get good crops from and where you don’t. He even tells why. Notice it is about the soils and where they are located. He also instructed us through Isaiah that before someone has sown seed, they already have prepared the field! It’s a pattern to what is expected to produce a good crop and from where.
And then He emphasizes once again just like He did with Isaiah to HEAR Him. LISTEN to Him.
For those of you who struggle with these things please get this: if you read on a little further in Matthew 13, He instructs us about the spiritual relevance and reality of this physical example in agriculture. It is inseparable to those who are given the ability to understand patterns and parables in the entirety of the scriptures. He tells them it isn’t for everyone. But that is another subject.
Wild barley growing in cultivated fields alongside her sister domestic barley is what we are to look for and use for a representation of our Savior Wavesheafs Offering and nothing else, or for that matter nothing less. That is what is acceptable for a First of the Firstfruit Wavesheaf Offering being totally representative of Him. Strong, healthy, coming from good ground. That is a Biblical tenant and command and principle. We must never use wild barley growing in areas defined for grazing.
If you can’t understand the duality in that, then you are in for some troubling times of confusion ahead.
In the next 14 days we are going to see an explosion of barley coming out of the boot and thus entering the level of growth in Zadoks 5th stage. This is an exciting time in the Abib Growing Cycle for we get to see the entire process: from fertilization, to seed sacks starting to fill, to seeds filling out in the green heads, and to the dough stages and physiological maturity; all in the next 4 weeks from the early fields.
It is important for us to keep up our vigil in this. The grain development in these later stages from #5 on is now more susceptible and influenced more readily by Fathers meteorological conditions placed in the Land. Sunshine is of the utmost importance. The soils are saturated in some of the early areas and this can carry them a long way. So, look for the amount of direct sunshine. That is now the biggest determining factor in the timing.
The second half of winter flowers are reaching their glory in the next week and then will taper off to some extent. Still present but not dominating the countryside in many regions like they have been. Other locations will move into that ranking. Such a beautiful process for us to learn from.
We have the blossoming trees starting to make a stand of their own right now. That will intensify up through the next 3 weeks based on elevation.
We are seeing the effects of the diminished early rains in areas of the South. Wild oats and wild barley growing in those sandy soils are moving rabidly through the growth stages producing anemic plants this cycle in areas they often look much better in.
Bring on the goat grass prognosticators. We have a sample! Send your money and adoration! On second thought, either one will do since we are flush with new cash.
Some are curious about the birds showing up: as in the white storks, turtle doves, swifts, and swallows. Good for you!!! You can only understand their importance in all of this if Father has revealed it to you. Keep in mind the major factor in their timing is the increasing sunlight. The closer we get to the Vernal equinox the more of them we will see. The Typical March Calendar we have posted often will give you the traditional dates as to when they peek in their migrations relevant to their witness to the start of the new year. Every single one of them, is prior to Passover.
Jeremiah 8:7 Even the stork in the heavens knows her appointed times (#4150 moedim); and the turtledove, the swift, and the swallow guard, protect, and attend (#8104) the time of their coming. But My people do not know the righteous decisions of Yehovah.
That is just a breathtaking statement as to how our Elohim use physical examples in creation to instruct us in spiritual realities. Once again: Thank you Father!
So, lets pray about the outcome of all of these signs in creation given to us so we are without excuse as to when we are to guard, protect, and attend our appointed times of meeting with our Elohim; Father and Son!
Our peace we give to you.
