Big changes could start in APRIL

May the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ dwell in your hearts.
10 days ago I shared with you an important message from the Lord in which the month of April is relevant.
More post then surfaced in this community with an emphasis on the same month: April.
Since then I have been praying for enlightenment from the Lord about this month that is coming up in a few days.
And just today (March 29/2022) I just read an article by Michael Snyder that gave more insight. April in the regular calendar may just be another month for most of us, but not in the biblical calendar, the calendar provided by God Himself.
“Al throughout history, important historical events have happened during extremely significant times on God’s calendar, and I believe that there is a very good chance that this upcoming Biblical year will be a critical turning point. The first day of the first month on the modern Jewish calendar begins at sundown on Friday (April 1st). It is commonly known as “The first of Nisan” but of course Nisan is a Babylonian name that was adopted by the Jewish people during the Babylonian exile. In the Torah, the first month of the year was always called: Aviv”. In some versions of the Bible is Abib.
Exodus 13:4 “On this day, you are going out, in the month of Aviv”.
Exodus 23:15 “You shall observe the Feast of Unleavened Bread. For seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, as I commanded you, in the appointed time of the month Aviv, for in it you came out from Egypt. No one shall appear Before Me empty-handed”.
Exodus 34:18 “You shall keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread. For seven days you are to eat unleavened bread, as I commanded you, in the month of Aviv, for in the month of Aviv you came out of Egypt”.
Deuteronomy 16:1 “Observe the month of Aviv and keep the Passover to the Lord you God, for in the month of Aviv the Lord your God brought you out of Egypt by night”.
Aviv literally means “barley ripening”, and this month always fall in the spring. And in Exodus 12, we are specifically told that this month “shall be the beginning of months to you” Now the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying: (2) this month shall be the beginning of months to you.
Today, the Jewish people recognize the first of Tishrei (Rosh Hashanah) as the day when the new year begins. But that doesn’t seem to make any sense. How can “New Year’s day” fall on the first day of the seventh month? Needless to say, it wasn’t this way. The Babylonian exile was a very painful time for the Jewish people, and many of their practices dramatically changed during this time.
The following comes from an Israeli news source…
We don’t know what the religious life of the Jews was like during the Babylonian exile. But we do know that by the time the Jews returned to Israel, and at the beginning of the Second Temple period (516 BCE), Jewish religious practices had profoundly changed compared with the pre-exile era.
For one, the names of the months that we use to this very day are the Babylonian names. Tishrei for example is a Babylonian month whose name derives from the Akkadian word tishritu- “beginning”. And that same Israeli news source explains that the first of Tishrei was one of the times, when the Babylonians celebrated “New Year’s Day”.
Of course the first day of the seventh month does have significance in the Bible too. It is the Feast of Trumpets, and it is extremely important. But it is not the beginning of the year.
Unfortunately it is impossible for me to share the original link of Mr. Snyder, author of various books.
Now we can understand the relevance of APRIL or AVIV, the first month of the Jewish calendar according to the Old Testament, not modern Jewish practices. Now I understand why the Lord told me: “It will start in April”.
Big changes could begin to be seen in April because it will initiate a “Perestroika”. a restructuring of the economic and political system. Not to mention that we would be in a Shemitah cycle as well.
As always, please pray for guidance, wisdom and confirmation from the Lord.
