NOTE: An asterisk (*) beside the years 2016, 2019 & 2024 in the chart above, means, the sacred calendar year will start one month earlier than in the popular Jewish calendar. See below for Alternative Dates.

Why the Difference?

1. ANSWER
The answer is because A Voice In The Wilderness - Canada starts the year with the new moon nearest the true Spring equinox (20th March.) Several Questions concerning the sacred calendar are answered in Part Two of the booklet entitled The Sacred Calendar of the God of Israel. Please study those answers before submitting further questions.

2. FIRST SIGHTINGS OF THE NEW MOON
As stated in the Calendar booklet concerning First Visibility:
It is not possible to infallibly predict the exact date and time of the first sighting of a new moon. Greenwich Observatory in England confirms this fact. Therefore when setting up a calendar in advance, it is necessary to proceed using all the known facts at one's disposal; facts such as

Besides these there are other factors which must be considered.
They are:

3. THE YEARS 2016, 2019 & 2024
You will notice from the chart above that in these years A Voice In The Wilderness - Canada has started the year a month before the popular Jewish calendar. The reason is that we have selected the new moon nearest the true equinox (20th March) to begin Abib (Nisan). In year 2016 this conjunction occurs on 9th March at 03:54 hours (Jerusalem Time) and the new moon is expected to be seen on the morning of 10th, thus making 10th March the 1st Abib.

4. SIGNS IN THE SKY
Many believers become polarised about the matter of keeping the correct Feast days. It is, of course, vitally important; and that is why A Voice In The Wilderness - Canada makes such an effort to get it right. But let no one forget that the GREAT FEASTS (the realities to which all the current feasts point) will be miraculously highlighted by signs in the sun, moon and stars! We will not then be dependant upon computer printout, or the knowledge and skill of leaders feverishly arguing amongst themselves as to who is correct.

In the near future there shall be SIGNS IN THE SKY which will clearly mark out the correct feasts, sacred seasons or Sabbatical Year just as they did when the Savior hung on the cross. On that occasion the sun went out for over three hours. That was no eclipse by any means; for an eclipse only lasts a few minutes.

Matt.27: 45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.

When the Savior died on that memorable day, even the Roman soldier confessed:

" Truly this man was the Son of God."
It will be the same in the near future; the promised signs in the sun, moon and stars will mark out the sacred times for all to see. Look out for these celestial signs at the Feasts!
Mark 13 23: But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
24: But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,
25: And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven
to divide the day from the night;
and let them be for SIGNS, and for seasons, and for days, and years.

(Genesis 1: 14)
