The Bible Christians of God Observe THE SET FEASTS OF THE LORD
Along with the 7th day (Saturday) weekly Sabbath there are seven high (7 Annual Sabbaths)
Holy gatherings which are held and no work is to be done on these days except for the Passover.
Leviticus the 23rd chapter lists all the Holy Days of God, which he commanded us to observe forever.
Abib / Nisan is the first month of the year according to God's word (Deut 16:1, Ex 12:1-2 Est 3:7) which begin at sundown
for the LORD'S set feast starting from day 1 of Abib aka Nisan a 30 day long count month.
The Set Feast starts from the biblical month called Abib 1 which is 30 days long and the origin of our 30 day per month count.
Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto the Lordthy God: for in the month of Abib the Lord thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night. Deut 16:1
Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:)
HOW IS ABIB DETERMINED

(6 months of 30 days per month plus the 1st day of the 7th Month)
