CHAPTER ONE CHAPTER TWO CHAPTER THREE CHAPTER FOUR
YAHWEH'S annual Sabbaths are also called the Feasts of the YAHWEH. YAHWEH said that the Holy Days were HIS feasts. He did not say "feasts of the Jews," nor of any one else, HE said that they are MY feasts.
Lev. 23 (2) Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of YAHWEH, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are MY feasts.
Paul told the Assembly at Colosse that the Holy Days were shadows of things to come. They were shadows of appointed times that YAHWEH would accomplish HIS mission to redeem the human race from the penalty of eternal death. As explained earlier, this mission is still being accomplished through and by YAHshua. Ha Mashiach (Messiah).
Col. 2 (16) Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a holyday, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath Days: (17) Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Messiah.
YAHshua was crucified and buried on the preparation day for the Passover. He was raised from the dead and ascended to the Father during the days of Unleavened Bread. Contrary to popular belief, YAHshua did not die on Friday evening; nor did He rise from the dead on Sunday morning at sunrise! It will be explained in the next few pages which day each of these things occurred.
According to Exodus 12 (1)-(18), the Israelites were to take a lamb on the 10th day of the first month and kill it on the 14th day. They were to eat it that night, which was the beginning of the 15th day, for it was the YAHWEH'S Passover. It was to be a feast forever. They were to rest the 15th day and 21st day of the first month and eat unleavened bread from the 15th day through the 21st day. That first Passover was the shadow. YAHshua was crucified on the day in which the Passover was prepared; thus His crucifixion was the object from which the shadow was cast.
John 19 (14) And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King! (15) But they cried out, Away with Him, away with Him, crucify Him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar. (16) Then delivered he Him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took YAHshua, and led Him away. (17) And He bearing His cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: (18) Where they crucified Him, and two others with Him, on either side one, and YAHshua in the midst.
YAHshua was the Passover sacrifice.
I Cor. 5 (7) Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Messiah our passover is sacrificed for us:
YAHshua was taken down from the cross and buried on a Preparation Day. As recorded in John 19 (31), this Preparation Day was just before the beginning of the first annual sabbath. This annual Sabbath was the first day of the Days of Unleavened Bread. This annual Sabbath Day, as well as each annual Sabbath Day, is also called a "High" day.
John 19 (31) The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the Sabbath Day, (for that Sabbath Day was a high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.
Luke 23 (50) And, behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counsellor; and he was a good man, and a just: (51) (The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) he was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the Kingdom of YAHWEH. (52) This man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of YAHshua. (53) And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulcher that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid. (54) And that day was the preparation, and the Sabbath [first day of Unleavened Bread] drew on.
Again, this is not the weekly sabbath that "drew on" (approached), as commonly thought; for it was a "high" day. It was the first day of Unleavened Bread, the first annual sabbath. YAHshua said that he would be in the grave three days and three nights. He could not have been buried on the preparation day before the weekly sabbath, which always began on Friday evening at sundown. Three days and three nights from Friday evening at sundown would be Monday evening at sundown. That would conflict with Mary's coming to the tomb on the first day of the week. The first day of the week always started at sundown at the end of the sabbath. It was "yet dark" when she found the sepulcher empty.
John 20 (1) The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulcher, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulcher. (2) Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom YAHshua loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Sovereign out of the sepulcher, and we know not where they have laid Him.
Notice what YAHshua said to some of the scribes and Pharisees when they ask for a sign (a supernatural happening) that He was the Mashiach. He gave them the following answer.
Mat. 12 (38) Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Instructor, we would see a sign from Thee. (39) But He answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: (40) For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth [the grave].
Now, notice what YAHshua said to His Emissaries on the fourth day (Sunday) after His death.
Luke 24 (36) And as they thus spake, YAHshua Himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. (37) But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. (38) And He said unto them, Why are ye troubled? And why do thoughts arise in your hearts? (39) Behold My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself: handle Me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see Me have. (40) And when He had thus spoken, He showed them His hands and His feet. (41) And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, He said unto them, Have ye here any meat? (42) And they gave Him a piece of a broiled fish, and of a honeycomb. (43) And He took it, and did eat before them. (44) And He said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning Me. (45) Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, (46) And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Messiah to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
YAHshua was buried the same day He was crucified. The burial was on the preparation day for the first day of Unleavened Bread. They buried Him before that High day arrived. The preparation day for the Passover had to have been on a Wednesday and the first day of the Days of Unleavened Bread on a Thursday of that year. Three days and three nights from Wednesday at sundown would have been Saturday evening at sundown. This agrees with Mary's arriving at the empty tomb on the first day of the week. It also agrees with YAHshua’s words saying that He would rise on the third day. He was not in the tomb! HE HAD ALREADY RISEN! YAHshua was in His grave three days and three nights; He rose from His grave in the end of the third day.
Next in the progression of the Passover season, YAHshua, by His ascension to the Father, accomplished the fulfillment of that which was portrayed in the law by the waving of the sheaf of the firstfruits. He became the first of the firstfruits of the human race to be raised from the dead to become part of YAHWEH'S divine family.
Lev. 23 (5) In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is YAHWEH'S Passover. (6) And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto YAHWEH: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread. (7) In the first day ye shall have a holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein. (8) But ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto YAHWEH seven days: in the seventh day is a holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein. (9) And YAHWEH spake unto Moses, saying, (10) Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest unto the priest: (11) And he shall wave the sheaf before YAHWEH, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it.
YAHshua fulfilled the wave sheaf offering between the time of Mary's going to the grave and, later that same day, when YAHshua appeared to his disciples. This was when He ascended to the Father, becoming the first of the firstfruits to be accepted by the FATHER.
John 20 (1) The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulcher, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulcher. … (17) YAHshua saith unto her, Touch Me not; for I am not yet ascended to My FATHER: but go to My brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto My FATHER, and your FATHER; and to My Elohim, and your Elohim. (18) Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Sovereign, and that He had spoken these things unto her. (19) Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came YAHshua and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
YAHshua was the true Passover sacrifice. He rose from the dead to become the first of the firstfruits of the resurrection. It was necessary for Him to rise from the dead in order for Him to fulfill the rest of the prophecies concerning the Mashiach. Some of these prophecies are found in the ninth and fifty-third chapters of Isaiah and in Psalms 110. The first part of His mission was finished. He had paid the penalty of death for the entire human race. Therefore, He made it possible for them to have the opportunity to be part of YAHWEH'S divine family and live forever.
I Cor. 15 (20) But now is Messiah risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. (21) For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. (22) For as in Adam all die, even so in Messiah shall all be made alive. (23) But every man in his own order: Messiah the firstfruits; afterward they that are Messiah’s at His coming.
On the Day of Pentecost, which was fifty days after YAHshua's ascension, the New Assembly received its first substantial growth. This substantial growth was a result of YAHWEH'S Holy Spirit being poured out as prophesied by the prophet Joel.
Joel 2 (28) And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out MY Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: (29) And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out MY Spirit. (30) And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. (31) The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of YAHWEH come.
YAHshua had also told them that He would have YAHWEH'S Holy Spirit sent to them. Again, remember that YAHWEH'S Spirit is HIS seven basic supernatural characteristics or attributes. The Comforter, Spirit of truth and Holy Spirit are three different collective names for YAHWEH'S attributes. The translators improperly translated the pronoun for each one as "he." Properly translated the pronoun should be "it." (See my article on the Holy Spirit for a fuller explanation.)
John 14 (15) If ye love Me, keep My Commandments. (16) And I will pray the FATHER, and HE shall give you another Comforter, that it may abide with you for ever; (17) Even the Spirit of truth; which the world cannot receive, because it seeth it not, neither knoweth it: but ye know it for it dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. (18) I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. (19) Yet a little while, and the world seeth Me no more; but ye see Me: because I live, ye shall live also. (20) At that day ye shall know that I am in My FATHER, and ye in Me, and I in you. (21) He that hath My Commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me: and he that loveth Me shall be loved of My FATHER, and I will love him, and will manifest Myself to him. (22) Judas saith unto Him, not Iscariot, Sovereign, how is it that Thou wilt manifest Thyself unto us, and not unto the world? (23) YAHshua answered and said unto him, If a man love Me, he will keep My words: and My FATHER will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. (24) He that loveth Me not keepeth not My sayings: and the word which ye hear is not Mine, but the FATHER’S which sent Me. (25) These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. (26) But the Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, which the FATHER will send in My name, it shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
One needs to understand that YAHshua's Jewish followers believed that YAHWEH'S annual holy Days portrayed the appointed times for the different activities of the Mashiach. YAHshua's death was the fulfillment of the Passover sacrifice on the same day that the lamb was slain in the temple by the high priest. It happened on the 14th day of the first month at approximately 3:00 P.M. He rose from the dead at the end of the weekly Sabbath. The next day, the first day of the week, He ascended to the father fulfilling the waving of the sheaf of the firstfruits that was waved by the high priest. His resurrection and ascension happened during the Days of Unleavened Bread, which began on the first annual Holy Day and ended on the second annual Holy day. On the third annual Holy Day, YAHshua had YAHWEH’S Holy Spirit, the collective name for HIS characteristics or attributes, sent forth to the New Assembly; thus, fulfilling the prophecy by the prophet Joel.
There are four of these Holy Days yet to be fulfilled; they are shadows of appointed times that YAHshua will carry out other activities of things that have not yet been fulfilled. These other Holy Days are: the Memorial of Teruah (It could be called "Memorial of Clamor," but it is commonly called "Feast of Trumpets"), the Day of Atonement, the Feast of Tabernacles, and the Great Last Day. The Great Last Day is the first day following the Feast of Tabernacles. What are the activities that are to be fulfilled by YAHshua on these appointed times? One may consider the following scenario that will be presented with writings from the scriptures that seem to support it. Again this is only a hypothetical possibility of what could happen on the remaining four Holy Days yet to be fulfilled.
YAHshua, at His resurrection, was the first of the firstfruits and the rest of the firstfruits will be harvested at the resurrection.
I Cor. 15 (20) But now is Messiah risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. (21) For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. (22) For as in Adam all die, even so in Messiah shall all be made alive. (23) But every man in his own order: Messiah the firstfruits; afterward they that are Messiah’s at His coming. (24) Then cometh the end, when He shall have delivered up the kingdom to YAHWEH, even the FATHER; when He shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
The next Holy Day to be fulfilled is called the Memorial of Teruah (also called the " Feast of Trumpets"). The most common use of the trumpet was that it was used to call the people together. From the day that the Holy Spirit was poured out on the day of the feast of the firstfruits, there has been a calling together.
Heb. 12 (18) For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest, (19) And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard entreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more: (20) (For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart: (21) And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:) (22) But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living Elohim, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, (23) To the general assembly and Assembly of the firstborn, which are written in Heaven, and to YAHWEH the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, (24) And to YAHshua the Mediator of the New Covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
This calling together of the firstfruits could possibly end on the Memorial of Clamor," also called the "Feast of Trumpets," at the trump of YAHWEH. This could be the end of the first or early harvest. Paul surely must have thought that the resurrection would occur during his lifetime, for he wrote the following in a letter to the Assembly at Corinth.
I Cor. 15 (51) Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, (52) In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. (53) For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. (54) So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. (55) O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
Paul also wrote to the Assembly at Thessalonica concerning the resurrection. He mentions that this would happen at the trump of YAHWEH.
I Thes. 4 (14) For if we believe that YAHshua died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in YAHshua will YAHWEH bring with Him. (15) For this we say unto you by the word of YAHWEH, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Sovereign shall not prevent [precede] them which are asleep. (16) For the Sovereign Himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of YAHWEH: and the dead in Messiah shall rise first: (17) Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Sovereign in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Sovereign.
It seems that the Resurrection of the Saints of YAHWEH will occur on the Memorial of Teruah, commonly called "Feast of Trumpets." Perhaps when this awesome occurrence occurs, the Israel of YAHWEH will know that all twelve tribes will be permanently restored to their the Holy Land ten days later on the Day of Atonement. Is this not the final fulfillment of Leviticus 25:8-13?
Leviticus 25 (8) And thou shalt number seven Sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven Sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years. (9) Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the Day of Atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. (10) And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubilee unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family. (11) A jubilee shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed. (12) For it is the jubilee; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field. (13) In the year of this jubilee ye shall return every man unto his possession.
Do you remember the question that the Apostles asked YAHshua during the forty days that He was in and out amongst them after the Resurrection?
Acts 1 (6) When they [the apostles] therefore were come together, they asked of Him, saying, Sovereign, wilt Thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? (7) And He said unto them, It is not for you [the apostles] to know the times or the seasons, which the FATHER hath put in His Own power.
Perhaps the answer to that question is now being revealed to us in these last days. Perhaps that restoration will be on that Day of Atonement when YAHshua Ha Mashiach will come to sit upon the throne of David.
Zec. 14 (1) Behold, the day of YAHWEH cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. (2) For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. (3) Then shall YAHWEH [YAHWEH-YAHshua] go forth, and fight against those nations, as when HE fought in the day of battle. (4) And HIS feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. (5) And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and YAHWEH my Elohim shall come, and all the saints with thee. (6) And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark: (7) But it shall be one day which shall be known to YAHWEH, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light. (8) And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be. (9) And YAHWEH shall be King over all the earth: in that day shall there be one YAHWEH, and HIS name one.
YAHshuacame in visions to John while John was on the Isle of Patmos. In one of those visions, the Sovereign spoke of the events that would take place after His return. In chapter twelve, it states that those who died (literally and figuratively) for YAHshua lived and reigned with Him for 1,000 years.
Rev. 20 (1) And I saw an angel come down from Heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. (2) And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the devil, and satan, and bound him a thousand years, (3) And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. (4) And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of YAHshua, and for the word of YAHWEH, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Messiah 1,000 years. (5) But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. (6) Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of YAHWEH and of Messiah, and shall reign with him a thousand years
It also seems that on the Day of Atonement that the unsaved part of the twelve tribes of Israel that do not fight against YAHshua at His coming would receive the atonement that was portrayed in the ceremonies they performed on the Day of Atonement. They would actually have their sins forgiven as they receive the New Covenant. This would be the beginning of the late or second harvest. That harvest would end at the end of the thousand years at what many people call the Great White Throne Judgment. Also, this is the time when those that died not knowing the Mashiach would be resurrected to be judged.
Rev. 20 (7) And when the thousand years are expired, satan shall be loosed out of his prison, (8) And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. (9) And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from YAHWEH out of Heaven, and devoured them. (10) And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone [symbolic of the second death], where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented [symbolic of extinction from life forever, which is the second death] day and night for ever and ever.
Rev. 20 (11) And I saw a great white throne, and HIM that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the Heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. (12) And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before YAHWEH; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. (13) And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. (14) And death and hell [the grave] were cast into the lake of fire [symbolic of the second death]. This is the second death. (15) And whosoever was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.
Remember that humans will die the first death because the penalty of sin is death within the laws of nature. When they are resurrected in the day of judgment, YAHWEH will know which ones have accepted or would have accepted YAHshua’s death in his place, if he would have had the opportunity to accept it. It seems as though those who have not accepted and also refuse at that time to accept Him, will surely die the second death that will last for eternity. The lake of fire is only a symbolic representation of this second death. Even death itself will cease to occur because all who will be left will be part of YAHWEH’S divine family. They will contain an unlimited amount of YAHWEH’S Holy Spirit. YAHWEH’S holy Spirit supersedes and transcends all the laws of nature; therefore, there will be no more death for the human race.
When the second harvest of the earth is completed, it will be time for the after the harvest Feast. This is the fulfillment of the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot). This will also be a time for coronations and weddings (joining together). The first and the second harvest will be permanently joined together with YAHshua in the Kingdom of YAHWEH. This is symbolically represented as the Holy City coming down out of heaven from YAHWEH.
Rev. 21 (1) And I saw a new Heaven and a new earth: for the first Heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. (2) And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from YAHWEH out of Heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. (3) And I heard a great voice out of Heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of YAHWEH is with men, and HE will dwell with them, and they shall be HIS people, and YAHWEH HIMSELF shall be with them, and be their Elohim. (4) And YAHWEH shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. (5) And HE that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And HE said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. (6) And HE said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. (7) he that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his Elohim, and he shall be MY son. (8) But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
Following the Feast of Tabernacles is the Great Last day, the seventh annual Holy Day. This represents the time beginning an eternal utopia as alluded to in the following scripture.
Rev. 22 (1) And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of YAHWEH and of the Lamb. (2) In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the Tree of Life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. (3) And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of YAHWEH and of the Lamb [YAHshua, the true Passover Lamb of YAHWEH] shall be in it; and HIS servants shall serve HIM: (4) And they shall see His face; and His name shall be in their foreheads. (5) And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for YAHWEH Elohim giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever. (6) And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and YAHWEH Elohim of the holy prophets sent HIS angel to show unto HIS servants the things which must shortly be done. (7) Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book. (8) And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which showed me these things. (9) Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship YAHWEH. (10) And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. (11) He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. (12) And, behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to give every man according as his work shall be. (13) I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. (14) Blessed are they that do HIS Commandments, that they may have right to the Tree of Life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. (15) For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. (16) I YAHshua have sent Mine angel to testify unto you these things in the Assemblies. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
Remember the above scenario is ONLY a hypothetical possibility of the fulfillment of the last four Holy Days remaining to be fulfilled by YAHshua.
The Holy days were only very briefly mentioned in the writings that have survived to our time that were written by the first century followers of YAHshua. The first one that was mentioned concerned the day YAHshua’s Assembly had its first substantial growth.
Acts 2 (1) And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.… 12 (2) And he killed James the brother of John with the sword. (3) And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of Unleavened Bread.) … 20: (6) And we sailed away from Philippi after the days of unleavened bread, and came unto them to Troas in five days; where we abode seven days. … 20 (16) For Paul had determined to sail by Ephesus, because he would not spend the time in Asia: for he hasted, if it were possible for him, to be at Jerusalem the day of Pentecost. …18 (21) But bade them farewell, saying, I must by all means keep this Feast that cometh in Jerusalem: but I will return again unto you, if YAHWEH will. And he sailed from Ephesus. … 27 (9) Now when much time was spent, and when sailing was now dangerous, because the Fast was now already past, Paul admonished them
The last two places that the Holy Days were mentioned in the first century followers' writings were written by Paul to the Assembly at Corinth. In all these scriptures, there is no scriptural authority to omit YAHWEH’S Holy Days. (Read Part II & IV to understand how they came to be omitted by ""Churchanity.")
I Cor. 5 (8) Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. … 16 (8) But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost.
The sacrament instituted by YAHshua the Messiah with the bread and the fruit of the vine is discussed in the following chapter.
