Seasons Of The Harvest

During Bible History, the climate of Israel permitted a series of produce harvests from the land. Beginning in the spring, the barley harvest occurred in April-May (i.e. the "months" on the Roman calendar that the world has been misled into using today, see Pope Gregory's Calendar, in contrast to God's actual commanded calendar which was then used, see Bible Calendar and Bible Months), and then about seven weeks later, the wheat harvest in June-July. Then, months later, came the autumn fruit harvest from the trees and vines in September-October. The annual God-commanded Biblical Holy Days (in contrast to the man-invented "holy days," or holidays that are often observed instead) were directly related to these harvests (Passover near the barley harvest, Pentecost near the wheat harvest, and The Feast Of Tabernacles near the autumn harvest), not merely as seasonal celebrations, but because they also directly portrayed God's step-by-step plan of salvation for all humanity.
