Greetings in the Matchless Love of YahShua!
The Karaites, Michael Rood, and most of the Rabbinic-tradition-following Messianics all started the New Year in the middle of March. They then kept Passover at the end of March.
Nothing of prophetic significance happened when that supposed new year began. Nothing.
Yet, according to the conjuctive new moon and the barley being fully aviv throughout the land of Israel -- the REAL Hebrew New Year began on the evening of 4/14 and ended the evening of 4/15.
Below I have directly quoted from wikipedia about the explosion of the Iceland Volcano:
The plume of ash from a later ongoing eruption beginning on 14 April 2010 led to widespread disruption of air travel in Europe from 15 April, grounding planes and affecting the travel plans of millions of passengers worldwide.
YHVH has made it absolutely, crystal clear -- that this year began not only on a day in which we should wait till after all the barley is mature throughout the land of Israel (which only will occur on the first new moon after the equinox), but that the sighting of the first crescent is completely pagan, and we ought to follow the conjuctive new moon.
YHVH also provided a HUGE comet that streaked across the sky wed night, 4/14, the very night the Renewed Year began.
Yah has given us a witness in the sky and on the earth as to when this most important year has begun.
Let us cast aside rabbinic tradition and jewish fables, and instead follow the Torah in determining the times of His most Holy Feast Days.
To learn more about why we should follow the cojunctive new moon rather than the first sighting of the crescent to begin the Hebrew month -- please see my article: I Was Wrong - http://www.spiritandtorah.com/I_was_wrong.html.
To learn about why we need to wait until the first renewed moon after the spring equinox, please see multiple articles I have written and posted with "barley" in the title on main page of website - see http://www.spiritandtorah.com/mainpage_for_aviv.html.
Love in Messiah and by His Torah,
