Esther Tells Us The Time of The END

Prior to the Babylonian exile, the names of only four months are referred to in the Tanakh:

Aviv – first month – literally "spring" (Exodus 12:213:423:1534:18Deut. 16:1);
Ziv – second month – literally "light" (1 Kings 6:16:37);
Ethanim – seventh month – literally "strong" in plural, perhaps referring to strong rains (1 Kings 8:2); and
Bul – eighth month (1 Kings 6:38).


Aviv (Hebrewאביב‎) has several related meanings in Hebrew:

The basic meaning of the word aviv is the stage in the growth of grain when the seeds have reached full size and are filling with starch, but have not dried yet. During the plague of hail (Exodus 9:31), the barley was said to be aviv and the flax giv`ol.

Interesting note by Cindy...the plague of hail starts in the 7th plague ("And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great." 
Revelation 16:17-21) - just before Jesus comes (Jesus coming is a part of the 7th plague)...and His people are "filling with starch"? but have not dried yet? Have reached perfection in Christ but not yet been given the finishing touch of immortality at Christ's coming for eternity? I think it very well may have a very interesting correlation here between the first month Aviv - means the stage in the growth of His People being reconciled back to God through His Son.

Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month (Aviv  (or Nisan—the first month of the Hebrew calendar )). Joel 2:23

Nisan usually falls in March–April on the Gregorian calendar. In the Book of Esther in the Tanakh it is referred to as Nisan.

For the Gregorian calendar month Nisan in Turkey, see April
(or Nisan—the first month of the Hebrew calendar)

Read Esther 3 paying special attention to the 1st (Nisan aka Aviv = the first Biblical month compares to March-April - and the first of the Biblical ecclesiastical year. It begins about the time of the Northern spring equinox (March 21). ) and 12th month mentioned here:

"In the first month, that is, the month Nisan (March 21 thereabouts), in the twelfth year of king Ahasuerus, they cast Pur, that is, the lot, before Haman from day to day, and from month to month, to the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar" Esther 3:7

The month in the Hebrew calendar when the barley has reached or passed this stage (Exodus 13:4;23:15) is called Aviv, or the "month of the aviv": the seventh of the Jewish civil year, and the first of the Biblical ecclesiastical year. It begins about the time of the Northern spring equinox (March 21). Since the Babylonian captivity, this month has mainly been called Nisan (Nehemiah 2:1, Esther 3:7). On the sixteenth day of the month, harvest was begun by gathering a sheaf of barley,[1] which was offered as a sacrifice to God (Lev 23:4-11), when the Temple in Jerusalem existed.

When the storm of persecution really breaks upon us, . . . then will the message of the third angel swell to a loud cry, and the whole earth will be lightened with the glory of the Lord.--6T 401 (1900).

2 Thessalonians 2:3
Don't let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come (Jesus 2nd Coming) until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man (Jesuit Pope Francis) doomed to destruction.

 Esther 3:11 "And the king said unto Haman, The silver is given to thee, the people also, to do with them as it seemeth good to thee."Rev 13:5 "And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months."

Revelation 11:2
But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the holy city (144,000) for 42 months.

Revelation 12:6
The woman fled into the wilderness (obscurity/little known to the Catholic) to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.

Daniel 7:25
He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time (42 months or 1,260 days).

Revelation 12:6
The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days

Daniel 8:13
Then I heard a holy one speaking, and another holy one said to him, "How long will it take for the vision to be fulfilled--the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, the rebellion that causes desolation, the surrender of the sanctuary and the trampling underfoot of the LORD's people?"

Daniel 8:14
He said to me, "It will take 2,300 evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary will be reconsecrated."

Daniel 12:7
The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, lifted his right hand and his left hand toward heaven, and I heard him swear by him who lives forever, saying, "It will be for a time, times and half a time. When the power of the holy people has been finally broken, all these things will be completed."

Daniel 12:12
Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1,335 days.

"Aviv" accordingly also means spring, one of the four seasons. Thus the major modern Israeli city of Tel Aviv means "Spring Hill".[2]
Since Passover is always celebrated on 15–21 (or 22 outside Israel) Nisan, near the beginning of spring, "Holiday of Aviv". Pesach or Passover is always on the 14th of Nisan. The first day of Chag ha Matzoh or the Feast of Unleavened Bread is always the day after that, the 15th of Nisan.[3] Hebrew: Chag Ha'Aviv חג האביב‎ is an additional name for Passover.

Given name[edit]

Aviv is also a Hebrew male given name (the female equivalent is Aviva) for example:

The old and rare[4] Russian Christian male given name "Ави́в(Aviv) was possibly also borrowed from Biblical Hebrew, where it derived from the word abīb, meaning an ear or a time of year where grains come into ear,[5] also known as "Aviv" (or Nisan—the first month of the Hebrew calendar).[6] The feminine version of the name is Aviva.[4] The diminutives of "Aviv" are Aviva (Ави́ва) and Viva (Ви́ва).[4] The patronymics derived from "Aviv" are "Ави́вович" (Avivovich; masculine) and "Ави́вовна" (Avivovna; feminine).[4]


Yom Kippur is "the tenth day of [the] seventh month"[3] (Tishrei) and is regarded as the "Sabbath of Sabbaths". Rosh Hashanah (referred to in the Torah as Yom Teruah) is the first day of that month according to the Hebrew calendar. On this day forgiveness of sins is also asked of God.

Yom Kippur completes the annual period known in Judaism as theHigh Holy Days or Yamim Nora'im ("Days of Awe") that commences with Rosh Hashanah

Yom Kippur also known as Day of Atonement, is the holiest day of the year for the Jewish people.[2] Its central themes are atonement and repentance. Jewish people traditionally observe this holy day with an approximate 25-hour period of fasting and intensive prayer, often spending most of the day in synagogueservices.

2015 datesunset, September 22 –nightfall, September 23. Karaite: currently unknown, as the day is based on the observed new moon.

2016:   October 2 (at sundown) - 4

2017:   September 20 (at sundown) - 22

Note: The Jewish calendar date begins at sundown of the night beforehand. Thus all holiday observances begin at sundown on the secular dates listed, with the following day being the first full day of the holiday. Jewish calendar dates conclude at nightfall.

The holiday of Pesach, or Passover, falls on the Hebrew calendar dates of Nissan 15-22. Here are coinciding secular dates for the upcoming years:

2015:   April 3-11

2016:   April 22-30

2017:   April 10-18

Note: The Jewish calendar date begins at sundown of the night beforehand. Thus all holiday observances begin at sundown on the secular dates listed, with the following day being the first full day of the holiday. (Thus, the first Passoverseder is held on the evening of the first date listed.) Jewish calendar dates conclude at nightfall.

The first two days of Passover (from sundown of the first date listed, until nightfall two days later) are full-fledged, no-work-allowed holiday days. The subsequent four days are Chol Hamoed, when work is allowed, albeit with restrictions. Chol Hamoed is followed by another two full holiday days.
