2019 Abib Confirmed!

Abib Barley Confirmed, Passover Memorial Will Be the Evening of March 20, 2019

We have received reports from two different groups who found Abib barley in Israel. With this barley confirmation they also had this observation: “The Jordan Valley is the lushest I have seen in the 18 years of inspecting. That is following the thoughts before coming but certainly confirmed them as did our findings in our early fields at the confluence of the Jezreel and Jordan Valleys.” With this barley confirmation and the projected new moon sighting March 7, we will be observing the Passover memorial the evening of March 20. The photo of an observer in a field of wild barley verifies their report. Brian Convery, trusted observer, wrote, “If you are not aware, this is more than an omer requirement. This field is traditionally one of our early ones near Re’im Junction.”

We invite all of good will to the Passover/Feast of Unleavened Bread. The Feast will be March 22-28. You will enjoy worship services along with field trips, seminars, Bible workshops, great meals, and open gymnasium. Come and enjoy Yahweh’s days with us. At this time we have a number of dorm rooms available. Reserve yours now. Please fill out and submit the registration form at: yrm.org/passover-registration/

This is an excerpt of an email text from Devorah Gordon of Devorah’s Date Tree on the Aviv Moon Report today, under the subject ‘2019 Aviv Report (6 March , 2019)’: “I want to reiterate that the little Aviv we found, were patches found in micro environments and by far not representative of the state of the barley in the fields they were found in, nor will it significantly affect the harvest yield if these patches are not harvested before their heads break…. In light of our findings, it was the unanimous consensus of the team that they personally will… Read more »

It’s not about the minority or majority but about YHWH and relying on Him. He has seen fit to provide abundance in preparation for a harvest this month. If we all choose to use the fields planted to support the rabbinical date established last year that are not yet ripe, are we really relying on Him, or are we relying on men? The wild barley and the barley grown/cultivated on His timing will be ripe by His declaration. Who can say otherwise? Who can defeat His plans? To celebrate with men or with YHWH, it is the choice of every… Read more »

I have just received another email by Devorah Gordon of Devorah’s Date Tree saying the first pictue with the grains in the hand are not barley. I have just forwarded the email to your ministry. Let me know when you received it.

Also, barley matures “BEFORE” wheat. Anyone with a basic understanding of barley would know this. Scripture even makes this clear. With this Devorah, it seems the blind is leading the blind! (Ex. 9:31, “And the flax and the barley was smitten: for the barley was in the ear, and the flax was bolled” [bolled=podded, BDB No. 1392, Heb.gibol]. “32: But the wheat and the rie were not smitten: for they were not grown up.)

My understanding of this picture is that it is from a domestic field. Some folks use this to make a determination, and it was included in the report for those who find it helpful in their criteria, although it is in addition to the small areas of wild Aviv barley that were observed as well. That is the way I discern the report. Hope that helps! https://docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/e51d9f_2f973d4d56cf4b5db539cae70ec6aee9.pdf

You are correct. However Mr. Conlevy stated in his response to people being confused, and some upset, and I presume some derisive, that it is wheat in his hand but that was not the point. His point was that in a wild field a person will find all kids of things growing together. He went on from there.

Where in the Towrah does it say you have to wait a month to harvest?

This is exactly the case. The next month is NOT the month of “green” ears but “brown” ears. People forget, these feasts all center around the “harvest cycle” of crops. These crops sustained Israel. The Hebrew Tequpha (which always means “end” not beginning in scripture in every context) has nothing to do with it!

I have seen many pictures and videos confirming an abundance of Green ears and I mean an “abundance.” We knew because of the massive amount of rainfall this year in Israel that this was a strong possibility. I personally know several of the witnesses (different groups not connected with each other) in the land. One in particular holds a degree in agriculture, lived on a farm all his life and planted and harvested barley and wheat for years, works in agriculture and has searched for barley in Israel for many many years. Personally, your source sounds fishy. I would question… Read more »

Very disappointed I took the time to respond in support of the sighting and my post is deleted. It was less offensive than Levi’s, so I dont understand. Why would a post in praise of YHWH be deleted? I thought this site was dedicated to YHWH and not the people meant to serve Him.

Perhaps it was deleted in error try not to get so offended without knowing what the problem is and if your praising Yahweh than I don’t think that would have been a cause for them to delete you since they love Him as well.
Praise Yahshua for unity!

You could try posting again and maybe they will give you a reason why it was deleted.

What I like the best about her statement was. Let each person decide for themselves. No condemnation. No nasty name calling.

I would like to know where Shabbat observers work in America where u can just tell ur employer that wont be showing up to work on a Julian Friday. Or Thursday evening for that matter. and that you will be taking periods of leave or time off at unusual times of the year. this is a serious inquiry.

I’ve been observing Yahweh’s feasts since I was a young teenager in 1983. It’s not always easy to get the days off but I can say I’ve never worked a sabbath day of any sort. Planning ahead is the biggest thing one can do to get days off. Ask ahead for projected days and cancel them if not needed. Due diligence is required on our part.

Addendum… I’ve lived and worked in Oklahoma and Missouri where sabbath keeping wasnt always looked upon agreeably. It’s easier now than 30 years ago.

Most all employers with 15 or more employees are subject to the religious protections provided by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 under Title VII. https://www.eeoc.gov/eeoc/newsroom/wysk/workplace_religious_accommodation.cfm If you need advice on breaching the topic with your employer, I’d be happy to lend some assistance. For those of us following the observed as opposed to calculated calendars, it can be even tougher and more stressful because you can’t always give the typical 2+ weeks notice for professional courtesy/HR rules. As for anything, I definitely suggest prayer first. You have to approach with firm resolve to honor the and preserve your legal… Read more »

I work as a teacher, and my observant family members have worked for the school board too (or were self-employed). Previously I worked for my college and in various restaurants or for my father in the family business. I’ve never had much of a problem. My wife did have to grieve her principal’s denial of her leave about 4 years ago, to which I compiled relevant case and statutory law and we successfully appealed it to the county HR designee after it was handed off to the school board attorney. I usually always disclose the need for leave for religious… Read more »

I agree with YRM, sometimes we make it harder than necessary. I also agree with John’s advice of taking off predicted days and cancel if need be, it may work well for you. Myself and my father-in-law have done this before, to cover ourself. If someone has to cover you, be mindful that cancellation days off may affect other people and their livelihood too (for me a substitute, for others a colleague perhaps has to switch shifts). If you can afford just to take the days off anyways, that may be just as well. Open and clear communication with your… Read more »

My friend works at the hospital and when they hired her she explained it to them and has not had a problem with getting the days off.

I pray we don’t, as a body, get angry or derisive of others like what happened last time we had this situation. Let each follow their beliefs and worship the way they feel is correct. We will all stand for our treatment of others as well as our attitude towards our walk in the faith.

Well, did anyone roast the Barley for first fruits to see if there was fruit in it?
