Praise Yah! The New Year is almost here – March 29, 2014, at even begins the Hebrew New Year.
Biblical history shows that the Most High YHWH designated the first month and beginning of the year to take place in the spring in the month of Abib, not in the dead of winter in January.
According to the Holy Bible, the first month of the year, is named Abib.
Exodus 12:2 “This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.”
Deuteronomy 16:1 “Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto the LORD thy God: for in the month of Abib the LORD thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night.”
This month falls between the months presently known as March and April. The fact that the beginning of the year started in the spring was well known throughout the world up until the peak of the ancient Roman Empire. During that time, Emperor Julius Caesar declared that a total change in the calendar system be made. This calendar system went from a lunar based system that used the moon’s phases to determine time to a solar or sun based system. This new calendar, called the Julian calendar, later updated again to the Gregorian calendar, also moved the date of the beginning of the year from the spring to the winter.
Daniel 7:25 “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws…”
