14 days before Passover
Ex.12:2 This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.
Virtually ignored this the <Rosh Chodesh> (New Moon) 14 days before Passover it is the first day of the first month – ‘beginning’ is the Hebrew <Rosh>; ‘year’ is the Hebrew <Shaunah> – This is the true and only ‘Rosh ha Shaunah’ in Torah – Yet it is ignored.
The false Rabbinic/Judaic ‘Rosh ha Shaunah’ is purportedly from Lev.23:24
Lev. 23:24 Speak <dabar> unto the children <ben> of Israel <Yisra’el>, saying <‘amar>, In the seventh <sh@biy`iy> month <chodesh>, in the first <‘echad> day of the month <chodesh>, shall ye have a sabbath <shabbathown>, a memorial <zikrown> of blowing <t@ruw`ah> of trumpets, an holy <qodesh> convocation <miqra’>.
As you can see with the Hebrew inserted the ‘Rosh ha Shaunah’ verbiage is not there. Yet most of the 4,560,000 results (that’s 4.56 million) of a Google search attests to swearing how biblical it is sighting Lev. 23:24 of which no ‘Rosh ha Shaunah’ verbiage can be found!!???
Yet the world has been taught this whoee for centuries via the Jewish Rabbis and Religious Judaism in general inclusive but not limited to Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, Karaite, etc. – Which most Messianic, Hebrew Roots, Messianic Israel, Torah Observant (wink wink) etc. buy into including the Christian Church.
Actually the false ‘Rosh ha Shaunah’ of Lev. 23:24 is a cover-up of another important day; Yom Teruah or the Feast of Trumpets. Yom Teruah is the 1st day of the 7th month. What is so very significant of this <Rosh Chodesh> (New Moon) is that Yahshua did say;
Mt 24:36 “But of that day and hour no one knows…” (Mk.13:32)
Each of the 12 New Moons has to be sighted no one knows for sure until they are sighted. The 1st day of the 7th month Yom Teruah or the Feast of Trumpets is Highly Significant for it is the only mow`ed (feast) that has to fall on this sighted moon of which – no man knows the day or the hour. But it is hidden by the assertion of the false ‘Rosh ha Shaunah’
So instead of throwing up our hands and thinking no one can know – Yahshua was likely identifying the very time that we wait for – Yom Teruah but its importance is being hidden – as in the scrolls, bowls, vials and trumps of Revelation. Hidden by the usurping masquerade of the false ‘Rosh ha Shaunah’ imagination.
There are supposedly four Jewish new years specified in Mishnah Rosh Hashanah 1:1 (not Bible/not Torah) they are 1 Tishri, 15 Shevat, 1 Nisan, and 1 Elul. All of which carry the pagan month names from Jewish Babylonian captivity not found in Torah. Nisan was in the pantheon of pagan gods and fertility goddesses, which hides the only name given in Torah for any month – Abib (or Aviv – Ex.13:4; Dt.16:1).
These other new years are supposedly supported by non-Torah and in some cases extra Beyond Scripture (not Bible) literature. The point is; you cannot use anything non-Torah to redefine Torah to another conclusion!!!
Dt.4:2 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of YHWH your Elohim which I command you.
So when the evening of 3-11-2013 (or Abib 1) comes (give or take) Happy Biblical Rosh ha Shauna. Then on Abib 14 – Happy and Blessed Passover.
