What Is Pesach Sheni or
Second Passover?
John Vega Thursday, April 21st, 2016
Blood moon

It is refreshing and empowering to gain knowledge and insights about the Jewish economy because the Jewish economy is full of instruction for us. As I have stated before, I believe that Passover corresponds to the close of March or the beginning of April and that the first month of the creation calendar always begins in March and ends in April every year. Keeping this timeless calendar truth at the forefront of our consciousness can help us to understand the prophesies of the Bible more accurately because the prophesies of the Bible are all based upon a proper understanding of the Biblical calendar. 
The blood moons and solar eclipses of 2014, 2015 and 2016 confirm Sister White's authenticity showing that Passover was in March and not April 2016. Seeing this is the case Passover was last month. Please read this link. It is wonderful how God confirms His servant Sister White through the signs in the heavens. 


Second Passover this year is on April 22nd, 2016

Don't fret if you did not celebrate Passover according to God's perfect timetable last month in March 2016 because there is opportunity get things right by celebrating second Passover this month for those that were cluelessly following the traditions of men and who did not correctly understand God's calendar of feast dates. 

What Is Pesach Sheni or Second Passover?

A year after the Exodus, Yahuwah instructed the people of Israel to bring the Passover offering on the afternoon of the fourteenth of Nissan, and to eat it that evening, roasted over the fire, together with matzah/unleavened bread and bitter herbs, as they had done the previous year just before they left Egypt.

“There were, however, certain persons who had become ritually impure through contact with a dead body, and could not, therefore, prepare the Passover offering on that day. They approached Moses and Aaron . . . and they said: ‘. . . Why should we be deprived, and not be able to present God’s offering in its time, amongst the children of Israel?’” (Numbers 9:6–7).

In response to their plea, Father Yahuwah established the 14th of Iyar as a “Second Passover” (Pesach Sheni) for anyone who was unable to bring the offering on its appointed time in the previous month.

The day thus represents the “second chance” achieved by teshuvah/repentance, the power of repentance and “return.” In the words of Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak of Lubavitch, “The Second Passover means that it’s never a ‘lost case.’”

Thus those that are ensnared by the corrupting dead body of calendar belief system can have a second chance at making things right with Yahuwah. 

It is customary to mark this day by eating matzah/unleavened bread.

"In this fearful time, just before Christ is to come the second time, God's faithful preachers will have to bear a still more pointed testimony than was borne by John the Baptist. A responsible, important work is before them; and those who speak smooth things, God will not acknowledge as his shepherds. A fearful woe is upon them."— Vol. 1, p. 321. {GW92 90.1}

From the inspired book Desire of Ages written by Ellen G. White 
"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. {DA 75.2} 

From the Inspired and Inspiring book Patriarchs and Prophets by Ellen G. White
""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.
{PP 537.3}

Did some more research on Facebook this afternoon which was encouraged by my friend Ralph Myers.
I came to the conclusion that we have to add a 13th month this year at the end of the year rather than last
year as the general Jewish population did.
Here is what I got from carefully examining this site http://m.chabad.org/calendar/view/month.htm

According to Rabbinic Judaism 2016 

#1 Nissan April 9-May 9 
#2 Iyar May 10-June 6 
#3 Sivan June 7-July 6 
#4 Tammuz July 7- August 4
#5 Av August 5- Sept 3
#6 Elul Sept 4- Oct 2
#7 Tishrei Oct 3-Nov 1
#8 Cheshvan Nov 2-Nov 30
#9 Kislev Dec 1-Dec 29
#10 Tevet Dec 30-Jan 27
#11 Shevat Jan28-Feb 26
#12 Adar February 27 - March 27

Now according the Ellen White's certified timing of Passover as documented in the books Patriarchs and Prophets and Desire of ages I have calculated 13 months for the year 2016.

#1 Nissan March 11-April 8
#2 Iyar May April 9 - May 9 
#3 Sivan May 10 -June 6 
#4 Tammuz June 7-July 6 
#5 Av July 7- August 4
#6 Elul August 5- Sept 3
#7 Tishrei Sept 4- Oct 2
#8 Cheshvan Oct 3-Nov 1
#9 Kislev Nov 2-Nov 30
#10 Tevet Dec 1 - Dec 29
#11 Shevat Dec30 - Jan 27
#12 Adar Jan 28 - Feb 26
#13 2 Adar Feb 27 - Mar to 27
