Why Nehemiah Gordon Can't Discern
The Signs and the Seasons
No Record of a 13th Month or

Dear Friends and Bible Students,

After Reading Nehemiah Gordon's latest newsletter "Aviv Barley and the Gold Panda" I figured out why he can't discern the signs and the seasons and why his judgment is so skewed. In his newsletter Nehemiah Gordon admits he's been " going on adrenalin, coffee" during his Aviv search in Israel.

Nehemiah quoted from letter "Aviv Barley and the Gold Pandas"

"The intensity of the Aviv Search had me going on adrenalin, coffee and prayers."

A Warning to Coffee Addicts By Sister Ellen G. White

   "Those who resort to tea and coffee for stimulation to labor, will feel the evil effects of this course in trembling nerves and lack of self-control. Tired nerves need rest and quiet. Nature needs time to recuperate her exhausted energies. But if her forces are goaded on by the use of stimulants, there is, whenever this process is repeated, a lessening of real force. For a time more may be accomplished under the unnatural stimulus, but gradually it becomes more difficult to rouse the energies to the desired point, and at last exhausted nature can no longer respond.  {CTBH 35.1} 
     The habit of drinking tea and coffee is a greater evil than is often suspected. Many who have accustomed themselves to the use of stimulating drinks, suffer from headache and nervous prostration, and lose much time on account of sickness. They imagine they cannot live without the stimulus, and are ignorant of its effect upon health. What makes it the more dangerous is, that its evil effects are so often attributed to other causes.  {CTBH 35.2} 
     Through the use of stimulants, the whole system suffers. The nerves are unbalanced, the liver is morbid in its action, the quality and circulation of the blood are affected, and the skin becomes inactive and sallow. The mind, too, is injured. The immediate influence of these stimulants is to excite the brain to undue activity, only to leave it weaker and less capable  of exertion. The after-effect is prostration, not only mental and physical, but moral. As a result we see nervous men and women, of unsound judgment and unbalanced mind. They often manifest a hasty, impatient, accusing spirit, viewing the faults of others as through a magnifying glass, and utterly unable to discern their own defects.  {CTBH 35.3}

The Apostle Paul Confirms

"Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will."
Romans 12:1, 2

My comments:

"Thank Yahuwah I'm not operating under Nehemiah's crack caffeine injured mind and unsound judgment because doped up people just can't think straight. They run to and fro all wired out on excitement, adrenaline and crack caffeine rather than operating under the influence of the still small voice of the Spirit of Yahuwah. (caffeine is a proven mind altering narcotic according to modern science)

We have a prophet indeed and we don't need to depend upon the testimony of doped up men with unsound judgment. Here is what Sister White has to say about the timing of Passover and the month of Abib/Aviv.

From Desire of Ages
"There were three annual feasts, the Passover, the Pentecost, and the Feast of Tabernacles, at which all the men of Israel were commanded to appear before the Lord at Jerusalem. Of these feasts the Passover was the most largely attended. Many were present from all countries where the Jews were scattered. From every part of Palestine the worshipers came in great numbers. The journey from Galilee occupied several days, and the travelers united in large companies for companionship and protection. The women and aged men rode upon oxen or asses over the steep and rocky roads. The stronger men and the youth journeyed on foot. The time of the Passover corresponded to the close of March or the beginning of April, and the whole land was bright with flowers, and glad with the song of birds. All along the way were spots memorable in the history of Israel, and fathers and mothers recounted to their children the wonders that God had wrought for His people in ages past. They beguiled their journey with song and music, and when at last the towers of Jerusalem came into view, every voice joined in the triumphant strain,-- 
                 "Our feet shall stand 
                  Within thy gates, O Jerusalem. . . . 
                  Peace be within thy walls, 
                  And prosperity within thy palaces." 
                                           Psalm 122:2-7. {Desire of Ages p 75.2 

From Patriarchs and Prophets

"The first of these festivals, the Passover, the feast of unleavened bread, occurred in Abib, the first month of the Jewish year, corresponding to the last of March and the beginning of April. The cold of winter was past, the latter rain had ended, and all nature rejoiced in the freshness and beauty of the springtime. The grass was green on the hills and valleys, and wild flowers everywhere brightened the fields. The moon, now approaching the full, made the evenings delightful. It was the season so beautifully pictured by the sacred singer: 
          "The winter is past, 
           The rain is over and gone; 
           The flowers appear on the earth; 
           The time of the singing of birds is come, 
           And the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; 
           The fig tree ripeneth her green figs, 
           And the vines are in blossom, 
           They give forth their fragrance." Song of Solomon 2:11-13, R.V.  {Patriarch and Prophets by Sister Ellen G. White p 537.3}
