Ready Or Not, Here Comes The Month Of Abib—The First Month Of The Year, And The Fast Growing abib Is Our Sign

We are looking forward to the New Year and The Most High’s Biblical springtime holy day feasts, thankfully we can see the signs which are signaling to us that the New Year is right around the corner. (And No, we don’t celebrate the New Year in the dead of winter, January 1st is not The Most High YAH’s new year according to The Bible, and so it was not our time to celebrate with the world, but we are getting ready to celebrate with Him now!) During this time of the year, many of us can see wild grass growing, if not in our yards, then at least off the sides of the roads. And if we look a little closer, not only will we see signs of renewed life in the returning grass, but we can also see the signs of preparation; preparation for the next generation of grass, the grass seeds, the fresh heads of grain, which can also be called—fresh young ears of corn. Corn?!? Corn isn’t grass… Or is it? Never mind that for now… Let’s continue, The new heads of grain prepare us to keep watch for the new moon/new month of the New Year. And according to Scripture the the first month of the year is called “Abib”:

“And יהוה (YAH/The Most High) spoke to Mosheh (Moses) and to Aharon in the land of Mitsrayim (Egypt), saying, This new moon is the beginning of new moons for you, it is the first new moon (month) of the year for you.

Shemoth (Exodus)‬ ‭12‬:‭1‬-‭2‬ ‭TS2009‬‬

“Today you are going out, in the new moon (month) Aḇiḇ.”

‭‭Shemoth (Exodus)‬ ‭13‬:‭4‬ ‭TS2009‬‬

So again, we watch for the new moon, which comes after the new heads of grain/corn appear. You might be saying, “why does he keep talking about corn, I thought we were talking about grass”… Let’s walk through this, some of the English translators of Scripture used corn in place of grain, even though we might not call grain, corn like that now, it’s the same thing… time for some word research:

So corn is synonymous with grain. Now let’s look up Abib.

So Abib deals with fresh, young heads of grain/ears of corn, got it. But we started this blog talking about grass… so what’s the connection between grass & corn/grain?

Ok, so we see the connection between grass & corn/grain, but what about barley? Well, not only is barley mentioned in the definition of Abib above, but Scripture highlights barley and its harvest time & season frequently. But what’s that have to do with the barley and grass connection?

Barley is a particularly nutritious & important grass/grain/corn too, also noteworthy is that it sprouts grain before wheat. Check out the link below later, you might even want to try and grow some, who knows…

Last bit on barley, here’s another resource to read through

Alright family, let’s wrap this one up, since we are currently seeing abib growing, it’s time for us to start looking up into the night’s sky with anticipation as we wait to see the New Year’s New Moon’s first sliver of light. HalleluYAH/Praise YAH for the signs He gave us, which makes it easy for all of us to know what time it is. May Abba YAH bless you and keep you in this New Year, may He shine His face upon you, may He give you His shalom, and may the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts be acceptable in His sight!

Until next time, shalom ✌🏾
