In Sync With God's Calendar?

Leviticus 23:5
"In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the LORD'S passover".
Deuteronomy 16:1
“Guard the month of spring, and make [then] the Passover offering.”
So, Passover had to be kept in the first month (called Nisan), which was in Spring.
In Israel it's Spring in Nisan. But here in the Southern Hemisphere it isn't Spring during Nisan, it's Autumn.
So our calendar can't be synced with the ancient Jews' Torah calendar.
Not because we're pagans. Got nothing to do with the Gregorian calendar. It's because of the way God Himself made the earth.
God's own seasonal calendar for the Southern Hemisphere can't be synced with the calendar He once gave the ancient Jews through their Torah.
That shows us the Torah's seasonal Feasts weren't intended for us.
And there are other reasons why the Northern Hemisphere can't keep the Passover any more either.
Jesus gave the Church something else - the Lord's Table:
"As oft as ye drink it".
Anywhere, anytime, any day, any season.
"This do in remembrance of me".
While it is called, Today.
II Corinthians 6:2
"...behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)"
