Good Morning Folks,
We hope you are all doing well and that you are busy making plans for the upcoming festival season of the first Biblical Month.
You may be familiar with the phrase "Father knows best!"
We can certainly apply it once again to what has taken place in the Land of Israel these past 3 weeks. He put His stamp of disapproval on the false witness declaring the start of the year back in the first week of March by causing severe winter conditions to engulf the Land during the week of the false festival being kept.
Once that "Samarian festival" ended He has blessed the Land with warm breezes and sunny skies. Now, the required meteorological conditions necessary to bring on the early harvest are being introduced to the Land by our Elohim.
We are about to experience the first Sharav event of this Gregorian Year. Just think, it will start on April 1st. What a sense of humor our Creators have.
If you are not familiar with the meteorological term of Sharav, please look it up for it should be part of your Abib Calendar information file.
For you old timers out there, when have we ever experienced the first Sharav this late in the Gregorian Year? Once again: Father knows best!
For those of us who look for the new moon in Israel, or primarily in Jerusalem, this weekends condition may cause a very big haze plume over the Mediterranean Sea. As we know, the first crescent descends into that haze as the light from the sunset fades. Timing is everything in the tenants of the Abib Calendar, so we will see what Father has in store for Saturday/Sabbath evening moon set.
For those of you who are asking, yes the goat grass (wild anemic barley growing in stony soils) is past aviv in many locations. However, the wild barley and domestic barley found in good soils are right on time for the upcoming festival season. The two barley sisters have once again proven their value as true witnesses in creation to the change of the Biblical Year from winter to summer.
Our Peace we give to you.
