The Biblical Significance of the Month of Nisan

Nisan is the first month in the Hebrew calendar. The Torah itself says so, in Exodus 12:2:


This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you.


Since Nisan is the first, other months are counted in the Bible as the second, third month etc. The names in the current Hebrew calendar were only added after the Babylonian exile, and they are in fact of Babylonian origin.


Nisan is the month of Passover when we remember the death and resurrection of our Lord. We also remember the Exodus from Egypt, with signs and wonders, marking the beginning of Israel as a nation. So, we can see that the month is packed with significant events. What can we learn from the Bible about such a time? How should we live so that we are prepared, when a significant move of God comes?
