Taking a Look at Nisan – The Month Abib for Atonement for Sins, Commemorative Mourning, and Commemorative Gratitude..

As we step into the Month of Abib (Nisan), we find several Holy Days of Dedications to Fasting in the Old Testament related to great attacks against the Followers of the Lord Almighty and the Deliverance by Elohim to His Chosen People.

As we enter into this month, with the World hating Christians and the Jews and the luciferians continuing their implementation of the Mark of the Beast, Depopulation Plan Agenda and New World Order about to come into affect; these Fasts speak to us more clearly than ever before, as HisStory repeats itself, and the soon Deliverance of His People will demonstrate His Name (Yeshua- Savior) once again.

See list below..

Israel Leaves Egypt
Resheet- First Fruits
The Risen Lamb of Elohim (The Resurrection of Jesus)

Fasts in Judaism can have a number of purposes, including atonement for sins; commemorative mourning, and commemorative gratitude.

We see with the following fasts to take place in the beginning of the year with some things in common.

The first fast we will look at is the Judgement upon Nadab and Abihu for offering God profane fire. This means they offered God something unholy, where they disregarded the Sovereignty of God very similar to the offering Cain offered. However, this was even more abominable than that because they paid for that mistake with their lives.

This teaches us to always Fear God, and to never disrespect God and lower His Height in the Heavens, as Supreme Being of All. The Lukewarm Church has done this, by shaping the Lord Jesus as a wimpy baby in a manger, who grants all wishes to Anyone that wants a Blessing and doesn’t want anything in return.

Leviticus 10
New King James Version
The Profane Fire of Nadab and Abihu
10 Then Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, each took his censer and put fire in it, put incense on it, and offered profane fire before the Lord, which He had not commanded them. 2 So fire went out from the Lord and devoured them, and they died before the Lord. 3 And Moses said to Aaron, “This is what the Lord spoke, saying:

‘By those who come near Me
I must be regarded as Holy;
And before all the people
I must be glorified.’ ”

Next you have the Fast of Ezra. If you are not familiar with Ezra, according to the Hebrew Bible he was a descendant of Sraya, the last High Priest to serve in the First Temple, and a close relative of Joshua, the first High Priest of the Second Temple. He returned from Babylonian exile and reintroduced the Torah in Jerusalem. According to 1 Esdras, a Greek translation of the Book of Ezra still in use in Eastern Orthodoxy, he was also a High Priest. Rabbinic tradition holds that he was an ordinary member of the priesthood.

Ezra connects both Temples, the 73 Yr and 80 Yr Destruction of Both (First and the Last) (Rev 22:13) which is a symbol of the Markers we stand in now before the Great Tribulation and our High Priest – Jesus Christ at the End of this World & Temple (Body) and the beginning of the New World & New Temple (Jerusalem)(New Body)

Ezra 8
New King James Version

Fasting and Prayer for Protection
21 Then I proclaimed a fast there at the river of Ahava, that we might humble ourselves before our God, to seek from Him the right way for us and our little ones and all our possessions. 22 For I was ashamed to request of the king an escort of soldiers and horsemen to help us against the enemy on the road, because we had spoken to the king, saying, “The hand of our God is upon all those for good who seek Him, but His power and His wrath are against all those who forsake Him.” 23 So we fasted and entreated our God for this, and He answered our prayer.

Gifts for the Temple
24 And I separated twelve of the leaders of the priests—Sherebiah, Hashabiah, and ten of their brethren with them— 25 and weighed out to them the silver, the gold, and the articles, the offering for the house of our God which the king and his counselors and his princes, and all Israel who were present, had offered. 26 I weighed into their hand six hundred and fifty talents of silver, silver articles weighing one hundred talents, one hundred talents of gold, 27 twenty gold basins worth a thousand drachmas, and two vessels of fine polished bronze, precious as gold. 28 And I said to them, “You are Holy to the Lord; the articles are holy also; and the silver and the gold are a freewill offering to the Lord God of your fathers. 29 Watch and keep them until you weigh them before the leaders of the priests and the Levites and heads of the fathers’ houses of Israel in Jerusalem, in the chambers of the house of the Lord.” 30 So the priests and the Levites received the silver and the gold and the articles by weight, to bring them to Jerusalem to the house of our God.

The Return to Jerusalem
31 Then we departed from the river of Ahava on the twelfth day of the first month, to go to Jerusalem. And the hand of our God was upon us, and He delivered us from the hand of the enemy and from ambush along the road. 32 So we came to Jerusalem, and stayed there three days.

As we look at the Fast of the Firstborn, this commemorates gratitude for salvation from the Plague of the Firstborn upon Egypt. The Church represents the Firstborn from Israel, as we read in Revelation 12. This speaks to Jesus and also speaks to the Body of Christ.

This reminds us of our soon coming rescue from the hands of the enemy, similar to Jesus being rescued before King Herod ordered the killing of all first born children in His Day, in the Day of Moses, and His protection for His Children and Children’s Children up to a Thousand Generations. (Deuteronomy 7:8-10 NKJ)

It also represents Jesus as our Protector and God’s Judgement upon those that persecute Him and His Children and His Faithfulness to avenge us. His Sovereign Abilities to protect us, while still implementing Judgement on the World.

Soferim 21:3 – Fast of the Firstborn

Fasts in Judaism can have a number of purposes, including atonement for sins; commemorative mourning, and commemorative gratitude.

The Fast of the Firstborn incorporates commemorative gratitude for salvation from the Plague of the Firstborn, as detailed above.

According to Rabbi Jacob Emden, the Fast of the Firstborn also commemorates the salvation of the Jews from the plot of Haman. This is because Haman advanced his plot on the thirteenth of Nisan,and Queen Esther reacted by instructing all Jews of Shushan to undertake a three-day fast beginning the next day, the fourteenth of Nisan.For this reason, even some non-firstborns maintain the custom to fast on the fourteenth of Nisan.

According to Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Auerbach,the Fast of the Firstborn also includes an aspect of mourning: firstborns fast to mourn the loss of their priestly status which had initially been granted them on the fourteenth of Nisan.Furthermore, during the Temple period, this loss was most profoundly felt on the fourteenth of Nisan, which was the busiest day of the year for the Temple priests and Levites.

Rabbi Yehuda Grunwald (Rabbi of Satmar and student of the Ketav Sofer) suggests that the firstborn Israelites fasted in trepidation in advance of the Plague of the Firstborn; despite a divine guarantee of safety, they felt a need to fast in repentance to achieve greater divine protection. Rabbi Grunwald thus posits that this was the precedent for the Fast of the Firstborn.

The Fast of Passover and not eating Leaven, reminds us to get rid of All the Sin in our lives, so we can attach ourselves to a Holy God, through the Blood Sacrifice accomplished by Jesus Christ. Our Loving Heavenly Father!

Exodus 12
New King James Version
The Passover Instituted
12 Now the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, 2 “This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you. 3 Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying: ‘On the tenth of this month every man shall take for himself a lamb, according to the house of his father, a lamb for a household. 4 And if the household is too small for the lamb, let him and his neighbor next to his house take it according to the number of the persons; according to each man’s need you shall make your count for the lamb. 5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats. 6 Now you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month. Then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it at twilight. 7 And they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel of the houses where they eat it. 8 Then they shall eat the flesh on that night; roasted in fire, with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs they shall eat it. 9 Do not eat it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roasted in fire—its head with its legs and its entrails. 10 You shall let none of it remain until morning, and what remains of it until morning you shall burn with fire. 11 And thus you shall eat it: with a belt on your waist, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. So you shall eat it in haste. It is the Lord’s Passover.

12 ‘For I will pass through the land of Egypt on that night, and will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the Lord. 13 Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.

14 ‘So this day shall be to you a memorial; and you shall keep it as a feast to the Lord throughout your generations. You shall keep it as a feast by an everlasting ordinance. 15 Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall remove leaven from your houses. For whoever eats leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, (S)that [d]person shall be [e]cut off from Israel. 16 On the first day there shall be a holy convocation, and on the seventh day there shall be a holy convocation for you. No manner of work shall be done on them; but that which everyone must eat—that only may be prepared by you. 17 So you shall observe the Feast of Unleavened Bread, for on this same day I will have brought your armies out of the land of Egypt. Therefore you shall observe this day throughout your generations as an everlasting ordinance. 18 (W)In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at evening, you shall eat unleavened bread, until the twenty-first day of the month at evening. 19 For seven days no leaven shall be found in your houses, since whoever eats what is leavened, that same person shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he is a stranger or a native of the land. 20 You shall eat nothing leavened; in all your dwellings you shall eat unleavened bread.’ ”

The Holocaust Memorial Day is a reminder to always be watchful because the enemy prowls around like a roaring lion, looking to see who he can devour. While the attempts to destroy God’s People continue from the enemy, the Lord always comes through to redeem at the End.

Holocaust Memorial Day ✡️
Yom HaShoah for Hebrew Year 5782 begins at sundown on Wednesday, 27 April 2022 and ends at nightfall on Thursday, 28 April 2022.

Yom HaZikaron laShoah ve-laG’vurah (יום הזיכרון לשואה ולגבורה; “Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day”), known colloquially in Israel and abroad as Yom HaShoah (יום השואה) and in English as Holocaust Remembrance Day, or Holocaust Day, is observed as Israel’s day of commemoration for the approximately six million Jews and five million others who perished in the Holocaust as a result of the actions carried out by Nazi Germany and its accessories, and for the Jewish resistance in that period. In Israel, it is a national memorial day and public holiday. It was inaugurated on 1953, anchored by a law signed by the Prime Minister of Israel David Ben-Gurion and the President of Israel Yitzhak Ben-Zvi. It is held on the 27th of Nisan (April/May), unless the 27th would be adjacent to Shabbat, in which case the date is shifted by a day.

The Exodus represents our soon Escape from this World and the fulfillment of HisStory on this Earth, His Redemption for His People and New Beginning for all of us.

Exodus 12:31-33
New King James Version
The Exodus
31 Then he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, “Rise, go out from among my people, both you and the children of Israel. And go, serve the Lord as you have said. 32 Also take your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and be gone; and bless me also.”

33 And the Egyptians urged the people, that they might send them out of the land in haste. For they said, “We shall all be dead.”

As part of the Body of Christ, we all take part in the First Resurrection (Revelation 20:6). Jesus is God’s Firstfruits and we as being molded into His Likeness – attached to the Vine, Reborn and Filled with the Holy Spirit, we are now officially One with God and ready to be harvested as spoken of in Revelation 14:14-20.

The Feast of Firstfruits (Hag Habikkurim), Feast of Your Harvest (Reishit (Re-sheet) Ketzirchem) (Leviticus 23:10), Day of the Firstfruits (Yom Habikkurim) (Numbers 28:26) or Counting of the Omer (Sefirat Haomer) was to be celebrated on the day after the weekly Sabbath during the Feast of Unleavened Bread. This means that the Feast of Firstfruits was on the first day of the week, a Sunday, and for only one day.

It was to be observed as an acknowledgment of God’s bounty because the whole harvest belongs to God, not to man. This feast marked the beginning of the two-month spring harvest. ( The Hebrews were to bring the first sheaves (the omer) of the barley harvest and wave  them before the Lord. An omer was about 1 quart of barley.

There were Six Unique Features of the Feast of Firstfruits:

– It was to be observed for one day only.
– It was a day of first-fruits. On this occasion, the firstfruits of the barley harvests were to be offered.
– It was to be a one-sheaf offering. The priest would hold the barleycorn from the sheaf in outstretched arms while moving it from side to side. A handful of the barleycorn was burned on the altar, and the rest was eaten by the priest, who could not partake of it until after the ceremony itself had been performed.
– It was to be offered on the day after the weekly Sabbath following Passover. For example, if Passover occurred on Friday, the Feast of Firstfruits would be observed on Sunday, but if Passover occurred on Monday, it would be observed the following Sunday, almost a week later. Again, this is the text’s true meaning: the first-fruits were always offered on the first Sunday after the Feast of Passover. For that reason, Moses gave no specific day of the month for this feast to be observed as he did for all the others. Since this had to be on a Sunday, no definite day of the month could be assigned.
– It was to be observed as an acknowledgment of God’s bounty because the whole harvest belongs to God, not to man.
This feast marked the beginning of the two-month spring harvest.

Matthew 28:5-6
New King James Version
5 But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. 6 He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

Prepare for the Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ!

Please repent, carry your cross daily and accept the free gift of Jesus Christ’s Death on the Cross for payment for your sins.
