Abib Barley and the New Year

Scripture References:
Matthew 24:32, Song of Solomon 2:11-13; Isaiah 18:5; and Exodus 13:3,4

After reading the Abib barley reports from Abib of God’s Brian Convery, seeing the pictures of the kernels for myself and praying about the upcoming new year, I was shown that there won’t be a 13th month this year. The barley is indeed ripe enough to be Abib. We just wait for the sighting of the crescent new moon to determine the first day of the new year according to the Biblical calendar. According to renewedmoon.com, the new moon is expected to be seen over Israel as early as tonight. So Happy New Year!

While reading through the Abib barley report, I learned that the barley is only one sign in the earth that indicates that we are entering into a new season, our new year. Here are some of the other signs:

Fig Tree
“When you see the fig tree’s branch become tender (has sap), know that summer is near.” (Matthew 24:32)
“…winter rains have gone, flowers appear on the earth, fig trees put worth green figs and grape vines that have young grapes start to smell good” (Song of Solomon 2:11-13)
Grape Vines
“…for before the harvest, when the bud is perfect and the sour grape is ripening within the flower…” (Isaiah 18:5)

According to the inspectors who are in Israel, these things are seen there now. For more information about this special season and Abib barley harvest, click on the following Abib of God links.


We know that the feast days are appointments that correspond to the fetching of the bride and the salvation plan in general. It’s also no coincidence that the first time that the month of Abib was mentioned, it was Moses reminding the children of Israel that the Most High/ the I Am delivered them out of Pharoah’s house of bondage during this month (Exodus 13:3,4). While we were instructed to look up for indicators of our redemption, the other signs mentioned in this post remind us that tokens of our blessed hope can be seen all around us here on the earth. So be ready!

    Some thoughts about the name of our messiah:

    Matthew 1:21
    “she shall bring forth a son, and you shall call his name eesha: for he shall save his people”

    (from http://www.morfix.co.il/en/%D7%99%D7%A9%D7%A2)
    salvation, help, rescue

      Hi Abdiel,
      I’ve heard several iterations of the Savior’s name over the years since I’ve started the blog. I believe the closest to his actually Hebrew name is Yashiya. When I prayed about it, a spirit (I hear both sides) said Yasha. Later, I was checking out YouTube ministries (I couldn’t resist) to see if anyone else had heard Yasha. The minister claimed that the name was Yashiya but Yasha is close to the Hebrew word “ishi” meaning husband. Check out my dream on the “Dreams and Vision” page. Our Messiah is known as the end time bridegroom, the espoused husband. We’ll all know the correct pronunciation and spelling when he appears. In fact, it may happen before he appears. When He sends his angels to gather back the elect, we’ll start to remember who we were before we were born on this earth. We’ll understand the mission that we were supposed to take part in to bring down the rebellion of the fallen angels. May His Kingdom Come and Will Be Done on Earth As It Is in Heaven!
