ensuing dress rehearsals point (forward and backward) to the Messiah who is
the Passover Lamb who has paid the penalty we deserve.
|Feast of Unleavened Bread
|...speaks of sanctification or being set apart. Leaven represents the corruption
or sin where we reside (temple, home, body). Messiah's body did not decay in
|Feast of Firstfruits
|...speaks of resurrection. Messiah rose triumphantly from the grave on the third
day because the penalty of death had no legal right to hold Him.
|Feast of Weeks or Pentecost
|...speaks of the personal intimacy in a relationship with Him. God poured out
His Holy Spirit after the ascension of the Living Word (Living Torah) as just as

|Tisha B'Av (fast day)
(The 9th of Av in these
tragic years ----------->
were anniversaries of the
10 of 12 spies slander of
God's promise to deliver
Israel; only Caleb and
Joshua defended God.)
(This time ------------------>
is happening right now!
This time ------------------->
is SOON coming!
So that we all will see
|...speaks of consistency in God's plan from the time of Moses (1312 BCE). The
10 of 12 spies were slanderous of God's Word and promise because He said He
would go before them, fight their battles and deliver them into the land. As a
result, we see this very same day cursed throughout history:
#2/586 BCE - the 1st Temple was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar (100,000 Jews
#3/70 CE - the 2nd Temple was destroyed by General Titus (2 Million Jews died/1
#4/135 CE - the Bar Kochba revolt was crushed by the Emperor Hadrian (100,000
#5/136 CE - General Turnus Rufus leveled Jerusalem, rebuilt it as a pagan city to
be called Aelia Capitolina and forbade Jews to enter;

many communities obliterated);
#7/1492 CE - Spanish Inquisition & the expulsion of Jews from Spain;
#8/1914 CE - WWI started, stemmed the resentment for the Holocaust;
#9/1935 CE - Hitler enacted a law that propelled the nation toward the infamous
Nuremberg Laws of the Holocaust;
#10/1943 CE - the beginnings of the deportation of the Warsaw Ghetto to
Jeremiah 31:10-13, Hear the word of the Lord, O ye nations, and declare it
in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and
keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock. For the Lord hath redeemed Jacob,
and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he. Therefore
they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, and shall flow together to the
goodness of the Lord, for wheat, and for wine, and for oil, and for the young
of the flock and of the herd: and their soul shall be as a watered garden; and
they shall not sorrow any more at all. Then shall the virgin rejoice in the
dance, both young men and old together: for I will turn their mourning
into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow.
|Feast of Trumpets
|...speaks of the peal of trumpets or the Shofar that will sound to announce the
coronation of the King of Kings - the Judge of the World, who's feet will land on
the Mt of Olives. Days of Awe (10 day) preparation begins for the fulfillment of
the Day of Atonement - the closing of the Books, the end of grace.
|Day of Atonement (fast day)
|...speaks of that solemn day when Israel and all mankind turns to Messiah in
repentance: And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inha-
bitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they
shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him,
as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one
that is in bitterness for his firstborn; Zechariah 12:10. This annual face to face
meeting reviews the past (year), accounting for every minute and revealing
whether we have "loved the Lord thy God with all thy heart, with all thy soul and
all thy mind... and loved thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments
hang all the law and the prophets." Matthew 22:37-40.

||...speaks of the season when the Light of the World was conceived and entered
this physical realm.
||...speaks of the season when once and for all, the iniquity of this world is dealt
with and the earth is made safe again.
