When is the first fruits?
Many like to calculate the time of "easter" but they may miss the biblical holiday of FIRST FRUITS. Study this article to understand resurrection time more thoroughly. http://raggedycottagegarden.blogspot.com/2017/01/when-did-jesus-rise-from-grave.html
Also study some of the definitions of Mazzaroth according to Judaism: http://www.betemunah.org/mazaroth.html
First Fruits is the time when Jesus/Messiah/Yeshua actually was visible after his Resurrection from the dead. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Exodus+23&version=KJV
By using the Qumran calendar method (the first full moon after spring equinox is the beginning of the first month for first cycle during barley harvest), the time of first fruits is on the first day of the week or the 19th day of the first month. The 19th day is five days after the passover.
Notice in AD 31, all five of the moving stars (planets) were visible in the heavens during high noon. this is equivalent to Judaism's Menorah (7 luminaries - 5 planets and 2 great lights sun-moon) In AD 31, the "new moon" was visible near King-Almighty God planet on passover. Also notice in the feast of first fruits (Resurrection) the 1/4 sliver of moon is sitting next to the planet Saturn within the constellation Gemini(twins or third month when commandments received).....which could symbolize a complete overcoming of Satan's power by a complete fulfillment of God's laws....
The Fall Feasts this year will show some unusual changes in the heavens. (Rev 12)
Notice, the 1/4 moon in AD 31 was near the sickle and HEART of one twin. The 1/4 moon in 2017 is at the knee of the twin with the bended knee. Note the bible verses: (Rom_11:4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.
Rom_14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
Php_2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;)
Note: study of astronomy and calendars from ancient bible does not mean or lead to "salvation" promise, it can only illustrate events. Some messianic culture fellowship follow specific calendar that match Judaism and some follow other calendar that coordinate with Qumran calculations it will depend. As quoted in the website www.betemunah.org: "A person can establish direct contact with G-d through prayer, and bypass the influence of the stars."
