First Month 2020

Day 14 to day 21 on this calendar is split into day and night because Pecach start in the evening of the 14th day, and the feast lasts for seven days till the 21st day in the evening. It is split so you can count which days the seven days are more easilyβ€”the 7days end on the evening of the 21st day. Then night starts. We see that the night of the 21st day has nothing to do with the feasts. Then, the morning at sunrise of the 22nd day is the weekly Shabbath.

Be carefull to not step into the ‘trap’ of thinking a day is from evening to evening.Β 
Shabbath is not an evening to evening.

Foot Notes

The calendar presented: Luni/Solar. The FVC is expected on 2 April 2022. That is the first day of the first month of the year.
Exo 12
Take a lamb on the 10th day.
Passover (Pecach) is on the 14th day, starting in the evening. Israel had two evenings; the first one started mid-day and the second one at sundown, twilight. (Between the two evenings) So during the afternoon, the lambs were slaughtered.
Pecach is from the evening till morning, sunrise. Then the feast of unleavened bread start and finishes in the evening of the twenty-first day. The 22nd day is the weekly Shabbath, and the next day, the 23rd, is the Wave Offering, the day after the Shabbath.Β 

Yahusha told us in Mat 9:13 that He does not want sacrifices but mercy. We do not sacrifice animals anymore for our sins. Yahusha was the last and perfect sacrifice. He instructed us to break bread, eat it and drink wine. The symbols of His body which were broken for us and His blood was spilled to pay for us. He bought us, fully paid for our sins, and now is His ‘property.’Β  We do this in remembrance of Him.

The 15th day and the 21st day are special Shabbaths. The 15th falls on a weekly Shabbath called ‘our high day’ because it is a feast day and a weekly Shabbath. We are told in Exo 12 that we are not to do any work on these days except prepare what everyone must eat that day. But, on a weekly Shabbath, we do not prepare food; we do that the previous day, known as preparation day.
We eat only unleavened bread and nothing with ‘leven’ during these seven days.
