Unleavened Bread Ministries with David Eells

The Biblical New Year Started in March 2016, But ...

[ audio ]

David Eells - 04/03/2016

It seems to me that the evidence shows that there was plenty of Aviv barley at the time of the new moon to say that the new year started in March of 2016. Passover was March 23 and Unleavened Bread March 24. Two groups of Messianic Jews found plenty of Aviv in March to have Passover and the first fruits offering. One other group of Jews who had more influence with the Jews and Christians did not find Aviv in March because they did not look in the same places in the fields so they proclaimed a leap month and the Passover in April. In ancient Israel you only needed Aviv to be found in one place to declare the New Year and Passover. Besides that, I would not take the word of unsaved Jews, who resort to the Renewed Sanhedrin as their authority, against the word of those who believe Jesus is the Messiah.

What is the value in knowing the correct timing of the feasts, etc.? They are signs of the things to come and one day when the signs are no longer needed the fulfillment could come to pass on those days...

However, there is a second relatively unknown Passover in April for those who had not sanctified themselves in time and because the Bride hadn't gathered to the Jerusalem in time.

Second Passover in April 2016?

God ordained that the second month be kept for the Passover for those who were defiled by the dead or were on a long trip, which we have been on, and didn't make it to the first Passover on time. Also, the priests, which we are called, had not sanctified themselves in sufficient numbers. This seems to identify most Christians who are slow to partake of the Passover Lamb and its benefits because of defilement with the world and its idols and lukewarmness. So I am wondering if the Lord has done this to confuse the timing of the Man-child and going into the wilderness tribulation, which we cannot KNOW, according to the types like Noah and Daniel, until the beginning of the first day. As Noah found out when God said at the first day, "For yet seven days". Suppose God put the sign of the Passover and the going into the wilderness tribulation in this second month, which is in our April, to further confuse everyone's timing. Could be significant for what we have been expecting. Let's study this odd Passover.

{Num.9:10} Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If any man of you or of your generations shall be unclean by reason of a dead body, or be on a journey afar off, yet he shall keep the passover unto Jehovah. To touch a dead body is a parable of not being sanctified, meaning not being separated from the old man by walking after the flesh and its lusts. {11} In the second month on the fourteenth day at even they shall keep it; they shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs: {12} they shall leave none of it unto the morning, nor break a bone thereof: according to all the statute of the passover they shall keep it. {13} But the man that is clean, and is not on a journey, and forbeareth to keep the passover, that soul shall be cut off from his people; because he offered not the oblation of Jehovah in its appointed season, that man shall bear his sin. So the spiritual Passover is necessary to save one's life and not be separated from the body. {Rom.8:13} for if ye live after the flesh, ye must die; but if by the Spirit ye put to death the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
{2Ch.30:1} And Hezekiah sent to all Israel and Judah, and wrote letters also to Ephraim and Manasseh, that they should come to the house of Jehovah at Jerusalem, to keep the passover unto Jehovah, the God of Israel. {2} For the king had taken counsel, and his princes, and all the assembly in Jerusalem, to keep the passover in the second month. {3} For they could not keep it at that time, because the priests had not sanctified themselves in sufficient number, neither had the people gathered themselves together to Jerusalem. The priests who offer the sacrifices of flesh were not sanctified in time. This parable now applies to Christians who are declared to be a Kingdom of priests. Also, the people had not yet gathered unto Jerusalem which God declared to John was the Bride. This is a sign that the Bride was not ready in time because of the unclean. Also, the people who are not in the Bride must gather around the Bride and Man-child, as it was with Moses, in order to go into the wilderness tribulation.

4} And the thing was right in the eyes of the king and of all the assembly. {5} So they established a decree to make proclamation throughout all Israel, from Beer-sheba even to Dan, that they should come to keep the passover unto Jehovah, the God of Israel, at Jerusalem: for they had not kept it in great numbers in such sort as it is written. {6} So the posts went with the letters from the king and his princes throughout all Israel and Judah, and according to the commandment of the king, saying, Ye children of Israel, turn again unto Jehovah, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, that he may return to the remnant that are escaped of you out of the hand of the kings of Assyria. So the rest of the captives of the Beast are commanded to come to sanctification and the Passover of the curse.

{7} And be not ye like your fathers, and like your brethren, who trespassed against Jehovah, the God of their fathers, so that he gave them up to desolation, as ye see. Many will not come but will be an abomination of desolation. {8} Now be ye not stiffnecked, as your fathers were; but yield yourselves unto Jehovah, and enter into his sanctuary, which he hath sanctified for ever, and serve Jehovah your God, that his fierce anger may turn away from you. The curse on the captives of the Beast and his nature can be annulled if they obey. {9} For if ye turn again unto Jehovah, your brethren and your children shall find compassion before them that led them captive, and shall come again into this land: for Jehovah your God is gracious and merciful, and will not turn away his face from you, if ye return unto him. {10} So the posts passed from city to city through the country of Ephraim and Manasseh, even unto Zebulun: but they laughed them to scorn, and mocked them. The captives obeyed not and are a mixed multitude going into the wilderness which God will judge as a defilement among the people.

{11} Nevertheless certain men of Asher and Manasseh and of Zebulun humbled themselves, and came to Jerusalem. {12} Also upon Judah came the hand of God to give them one heart, to do the commandment of the king and of the princes by the word of Jehovah. {13} And there assembled at Jerusalem much people to keep the feast of unleavened bread in the second month, a very great assembly. {14} And they arose and took away the (idolatrous) altars that were in Jerusalem, and all the altars for incense took they away, and cast them into the brook Kidron.

{15} Then they killed the passover on the fourteenth day of the second month: and the priests and the Levites were ashamed, and sanctified themselves, and brought burnt-offerings into the house of Jehovah. {16} And they stood in their place after their order, according to the law of Moses the man of God: the priests sprinkled the blood which they received of the hand of the Levites. {17} For there were many in the assembly that had not sanctified themselves: therefore the Levites had the charge of killing the passovers for every one that was not clean, to sanctify them unto Jehovah. {18} For a multitude of the people, even many of Ephraim and Manasseh, Issachar and Zebulun, had not cleansed themselves, yet did they eat the passover otherwise than it is written (in the second month). For Hezekiah had prayed for them, saying, The good Jehovah pardon every one {19} that setteth his heart to seek God, Jehovah, the God of his fathers, though he be not cleansed according to the purification of the sanctuary. {20} And Jehovah hearkened to Hezekiah, and healed the people. They sought the Lord and He sanctified them.

{21} And the children of Israel that were present at Jerusalem kept the feast of unleavened bread seven days (Israel kept this the last seven days before going into the tribulation wilderness. Another type is they kept unleavened bread under the Bride for seven day-years before leaving Egypt as a type of the world.) with great gladness; and the Levites and the priests praised Jehovah day by day, singing with loud instruments unto Jehovah. What a cause for rejoicing that finally apostate people of God were holding to the unleavened bread. {22} And Hezekiah spake comfortably unto all the Levites that had good understanding in the service of Jehovah. So they did eat throughout the feast for the seven days, offering sacrifices of peace-offerings, and making confession to Jehovah, the God of their fathers. {23} And the whole assembly took counsel to keep other seven days; and they kept other seven days with gladness. {24} For Hezekiah king of Judah did give to the assembly for offerings a thousand bullocks and seven thousand sheep; and the princes gave to the assembly a thousand bullocks and ten thousand sheep: and a great number of priests sanctified themselves. {25} And all the assembly of Judah, with the priests and the Levites, and all the assembly that came out of Israel, and the sojourners that came out of the land of Israel, and that dwelt in Judah, rejoiced. {26} So there was great joy in Jerusalem; for since the time of Solomon the son of David king of Israel there was not the like in Jerusalem. {27} Then the priests the Levites arose and blessed the people: and their voice was heard, and their prayer came up to his holy habitation, even unto heaven. Nothing makes your prayers heard more than keeping to the unleavened bread of God's holy Word.
