Revelation 5:5-9 – “…behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David …and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain …they sung a new song, saying, …thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation…”
Abib (Nisan) – Barley – Passover
(Day 1 of Month 1) – First Day of Biblical Year / Rosh Chodashim (Exod. 12:2).
Spiritual New Year / Biblical beginning of calendar
Month 1 – Abib/Nissan – http://torahcalendar.com/
On an agricultural level, Passover represents spring, the season of the firstfruit …
abib: fresh, young ears,
Part of Speech: Noun Masculine
Phonetic Spelling: (aw-beeb’)
Barley does not determine the start of the month or year – that is the role of the moon (the lesser celestial light). God called the first month Abib (Ex. 13:4; 23:15; 34:18; Deut 16:1), not its first day. But the state of barley will confirm which moon needs to mark the first month (with its attached appointed times) – in the proper season, not after it.

The Appointed Patterns – Part II – The Harvests
There are different harvests, and different crops that will be growing in the last days. Christ calls us to examine what is growing in our life, and how we are preparing our heart and life for our Redeemer and Lord. https://youtu.be/VvJYnin_tV8

WHEN TO WATCH
Information concerning the prophetic time to be watching, Christ’s instructions to His servants, the timing of His comings, and the Old Testament prophecies that pointed to this time.
Firstfruits of Harvest
Because Christ became the Firstfruits, we will also follow in like manner, at His coming. We have been instructed to look for Him the second time – understanding what happened the first time. And the more that we dig deeper into the pictures used during this 40-some days of Christ’s first time, we get a better idea of the importance of this spring harvest time of the year. We are looking for our Redeemer – the Lamb of God – to pick up His firstfruits!
Let us look up! Maranatha!
