With some of those who celebrated an early Pesach this year in the City of Jerusalem we had a wonderful time. In the "tent of meeting" in the camp we fellowshipped, baked Matzot, praised and worshipped YHVH and His outstretched arm, our King Yeshua.
On March 11th I came across a wheat field in Binyamina. Within it I found some aviv barley (see photo).
We personally haven’t seen whole aviv Barley fields in our area, others have seen some in the south (see the links on "Home").
The barley grains of the ears I found were so solid you could break them in half without squeezing out any fluid content, so they should be more than good for parching.
In addition as a sign for the beginning of the spring in Israel our neighbors fig tree is already showing some early fruit in Zichron Yaacov:
Even a stork in the heavens knoweth her appointed times, and ... [connect the dots]
the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of Jehovah.
The pangs of childbirth come for him,
but he [Ephraim] is an unwise son,
for at the right time he does not present himself
at the opening of the womb. (- Let me suggest to you that the opening of the womb refers to JERUSALEM)
“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, ... How often would I have gathered your children […] and you were not willing!
There will be earthquakes in various places; there will be famines. These are but the beginning of the birth pains.
1 Thes 5,1-3
But of the [appointed] times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. ...
when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them,
as travail upon a woman with child
Be in pain, and labor to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail; for now shalt thou go forth out of the city, and shalt dwell in the field, and shalt come even unto Babylon: there shalt thou be rescued; there will Jehovah redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies.
the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
Then I passed by and saw you kicking about in your blood, and as you lay there in your blood I said to you, “Live!”
... whosoever shall call on the name of YHVH shall be delivered:
for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as YHVH hath said

... We continued north on 90 and caught sight of a dozen white storks in their migration north out of Africa to Europe. We also saw doves, swallows and swifts. Their migration is one of the signs of Biblical summer.
Song of Solomon 2:11-13 For, lo, 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 turtledove is heard in our land; The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.

... Yesterday we saw a total of a dozen white storks in the Jordan Valley migrating north
Today we had thousands of them overhead as they were trying to pick up the thermals so they could soar tirelessly. […]
Are we beginning to understand the picture?
The Storck - twice a year shows up in Israel at the moed - the appointed time.
When will we begin to "soar tirelessly" through His Ruach
and stop claiming that it is too much for us to go to Jerusalem at the appointed time?
