天父יְהֹוָה 雅吾瓦拯救和贖回祂子民的計劃綱要 


    2:16יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】說:「那日你必稱呼我伊施(就是我夫的意思),不再稱呼我巴力(就是我主的意思);2:17  因為我必從我民的口中除掉諸巴力的名號,這名號不再提起。2:18  當那日,我必為我的民,與田野的走獸和空中的飛鳥,並地上的昆蟲立約;又必在國中折斷弓刀,止息爭戰,使他們安然躺臥。2:19 我必聘你永遠歸我為妻,以仁義、公平、慈愛、憐憫聘你歸我;2:20  也以誠實聘你歸我,你就必認識我【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】

前言: 
利未記23243744 "节日在希伯來文是"MO-AW-DAW”,這意味着"修復協議或預約見面,一起聚集在設定的時間(或一系列/週期性的預約時間或節日),以及設定的約會地點;這也可以意味為協定的相約的信號,跡象Sign"(#4150James Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible/Hebrew Dictionary希伯來語 "聖經” 詞典),這與創世記Gen1:14的"季節”同一個詞,描述了太陽和星球運行的目的是為了創造豐收的季節。יְהֹוָה 雅吾瓦】為太陽,星星和各個行星設計了無与倫比完美的的運行軌道,若有任何差錯,我們這個星球就不可能存在了。同樣,【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】使用這個相同的詞匯來形容祂與人類約會而協定分別為聖的7 個節日。這七個節日,是祂對祂的人民以色列進行拯救和贖回計劃的綱要。利未記23章為此7 個節日約會作出了有關這些任命的概述。 

帖撒羅尼迦前書5:1 "兄弟們,關於時間和日期(時節),我不需要寫信告訴你們,因為在帖撒羅尼迦的信徒了解,保羅是指【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】所任命指定的關乎救恩計劃7個節日。新的信徒則需要到猶太會堂裡去學習【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】的Torah(妥拉)(生活指引,一般人稱為舊約5經),並參加【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】分別為聖的標誌:7個重大的節日。"時節/季節,在希臘的字汇是"KAIROS”,#2540Strong's Greek dictionary希臘語字典的意思是:"一個特定的,指定的時間循環之際,一個固定约會的時間。就像天父如何維持各個行星,太陽,月亮和星星井井有條不差幾分之一秒的運行,同樣的祂也以如此分秒不差的安排來履行自己對人類所設置的約會節期。利未記23章概述了這7個祂與歸屬自己的兒女所立盟必需遵守的節日,並要求他們年復年的年循環性的排演一遍祂的救贖計劃,從開始到結束的整個計劃。 

單詞"聖會”在利未記23:2-4。(KJV)是#4744,"MIK-Raw”,在希伯來語字典裡,這意味着The Call Out One Assembly:"召唤/宣告出來的一個公開的聚會,排練/採排/排演。救主【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦】和天父【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】很快的將在地上,親自與祂的子民共同慶祝這七個由【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】所任命的聖會節日。即使是在第7個千禧安息年裡甚至直到永永遠遠,這7個聖會或採排性的節日慶祝將會執行到永遠。 

4000年,天父【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】所不斷的要求祂的子民慶祝和排練祂救贖人類的所有計劃和永恆的祝福。 "字,原意是"Set-Apart分別為聖。這七個節日的設置是為了把屬於祂的子民從人群中分別出來。就像每週的安息日,這些節日是"更高的安息日” "High Sabbaths”。這些節期是向屬於祂【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】、【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦】的子民召告以色列的至高全能者救贖的行跡。祂甚至設置了分別為聖的飲食指引set-apart dietary instruction,使我們的身體可以發揮造物主在我們身上的完美設計,達到心靈、情感、精神和身體上絕對的和最大的好處。祂實在是這樣的一位好父親!

 

目前,這些關乎人類救恩所任命的7個節慶已完成了4個,3個仍然有待完成。我們回首4 個已成就的救恩節慶就大大歡喜,但我們期待著後來的3個節慶,那為我們描繪未來彌賽亞【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦】在地上的王國。

 

當我們接受【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦】的拯救,我們通過祂的血和祂的復活,進入了與【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】、【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦】的神聖婚约/公約"的關係。我們將己所有的全奉獻給祂,而當我們必須為我們的罪悔改後,祂也將祂一切的所有和祂自己全給了我們。悔改是斷絕了一切不討【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】喜悅的東西和任何的關係。在這個與【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】、【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦】婚约/"公約的關係裡,我們有責任履行這"婚约/公約,就是服從【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】頒發給我們的生活教導和指示Torah(生活行為的指引)。妥拉Torah包含了聖經中首五本書籍,也是先知的著作和彌賽雅經文(新约)的基礎。不理解這部分妥拉Torah是屬於全本聖經的基礎,我們就不能正確的理解深蘊在我們救恩中的全部後果,我們生活在地上的目的,或者我們永恆的命定。我們将不明白如何在永恆的國度中生活,如何討我們國王的喜悅,如何在祂的國度統治下,成為有良好信譽的好公民。沒有從希伯来的根源里去理解祂的聖約節慶,祂為祂的子民所設計的永恆計劃中的"盟約"真諦,我們就無法理解我們人生的命定。只有通過觀察遵守祂的節日,我們才能明白救恩的全部計劃。

 在詩篇23中我們讀到:" 為自己的名引導我走義路希伯來經文翻譯 "義路 H6664 צֶדֶק (音譯 洗德) 是每年【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】的節日路徑,並且包含了每週的安息日;

"走進祂的安息裏”的路徑,行在天父眼中看為"義”的路徑上。 

出埃及記31:16,利未記23,節日被稱為"永恆的章程;典章。正如我們看到在以賽亞書66:22-23,甚至當榮耀的天父來到地上,並且創建一個新天新地的時候,安息日,新月份慶典和這些【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】時節的慶祝將會繼續执行。

יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】所任命的七個節慶

 

春季節The Spring Festival

 

首先,我會先說明關於節日慶祝的希伯來起源,然後展示這些​​節日如何已通過救主【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦】和聖父【יְהֹוָה 雅吾瓦】已經成就了。


逾越節慶:出埃及記12章יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】的新年PASSOVER/PESACH 

出埃及記12:2 ,【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】改變了以色列人慶祝新年的一天。若是從創世紀開始計算,第一天是從Tishre月開始(羅馬曆九月/十月)。但是,祂改元旦阿筆Abib或尼散月Nisan(羅馬曆3/ 4月)成為 以色列人 新年的第一天。祂這樣做,是為了要把從埃及拯救他們的日子作為七個節日為一週期的第一個月。因此,阿筆Abib1是祂救贖日曆上的新年。 

這場盛宴開始了祂拯救祂的子民解脫捆綁的計劃。這個節日所經歷的程序,是天父【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】如何保護祂的子民從10項的瘟疫中,尤其是把他們從在埃及的長子死亡的災難中拯救出來。就在這天晚上,天父【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】指引他們如何從死亡天使在午夜時分穿行埃及時,執行毀滅人與動物頭胎出生的死亡中逃脫出來,免了他們長子死亡的悲劇。 

在阿筆Abib的第10天(3/ 4月),將被宰殺的羔羊必須先帶到自己的家園接受檢查4天,以確保它沒有缺陷或污點。這羔羊會在阿筆14日下午3:00和日落之間被宰殺。然後,它會在日落後被食用。之後是阿筆Abib15日和除酵節的開始。烤羊肉須通體燒烤,並取出腸子盤纏在羔羊的頭上。它被稱為"加冕犧牲。已烤熟的羊肉須很快的被吃掉。他們沒有時間讓他們的麵包發酵,於是他們做無酵餅。羔羊的血,被塗抹到他們的房子門前的頂部門匾和兩側上。他們穿上自己的凉鞋,手拿着麵包,準備好盡快在14日午夜死亡天使在全埃及穿行經過後離開。當死亡天使看到希伯來人的房子門上​​羔羊的血,他不會殺死任何在這個房子裡頭頭生的長子和動物。於是,死亡天使"逾越過了希伯來人的房屋,從而命名這節慶為-逾越節盛宴-;這是逾越節希伯來文名稱的由來:PASSOVER/PESACH

 

除酵節慶:出埃及記12:17-18THE FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD

希伯來人在阿筆Abib15的午夜過後匆匆離開。在午夜時分埃及人的長子死亡後,在法老的命令下,希伯來人攜帶所有的牲畜和在兰塞的財產。他們乘着滿月的光輝到疏割Succoth去取回約瑟的骸骨。由於他們是匆匆忙忙的離開埃及,他們不得不吃無酵餅。當法老的悲傷轉成憤怒的時候,他召集他的軍隊去追殺希伯來人。聖經記載,離開埃及的希伯來人的男丁有60萬人,加上婦女和兒童,所以它應該有200多萬希伯來人再加上他們的牲畜和所有的財產離開埃及。

 

初熟之果的節慶:出埃及記14 THE FEAST OF FIRST FRUITS

 

希伯來人被困在一個峽谷,前有紅海,後有法老的追兵。法老知道,他已經給了希伯來人三天到曠野去崇拜他們的【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】。然而,由於法老的追兵,希伯來人無法在三天內返回,因此,他們不得不繼續逃命,以躲避法老的憤怒。 

阿筆Abib17日的晚上,他們到達了紅海。紅海在他們之前,法老和他的軍隊在他們身後。正是在這裡,人类上最偉大的紅海奇蹟發生了。正如海被分開,讓希伯來人走過乾地;之後紅海覆蓋回來把法老所有的軍隊都淹死了。藉此,天父【יְהֹוָה 雅吾瓦】把祂的子民從法老和他軍隊的鐵腕中全部釋放出來。法老從此永遠的失去了他在所有希伯來人身上的所有權。這一天,他們找到了新生;有如死裡復活。保羅因此說:【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦】成為睡了之人初熟的果子(林前15:20)

 

七七節/五旬節的節慶:出埃及記"19日和20SHA'VU'OT 

希伯來妥拉Torah(天父【יְהֹוָה 雅吾瓦】的教義和指引),是天父【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】在"至高全能者的聖山上”--Sinai/Horeb西奈山上和他的子民之間所立下的婚約條款。西奈山處於現代沙地阿拉伯米甸群山中。他們通過紅海后另外花了50天的路程才到達"יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】的山"五旬節”Pentecost是取之希臘文"五十。婚約的​​​​條款包含在十戒(10 項指引)中。它概括了要成為祂的新婦的性格。十戒(10句婚約指引)是以"יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】的手指寫的。後來【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦】告訴我們,"יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】的手指就是【RUACH如阿】即 【יְהֹוָה 雅吾瓦】分别为聖的靈。

 

秋季節期 THE FALL FESTIVALS

 

יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】所任命的7個節日都是基於耕作收穫的週期。前三春節是基於大麥barley的收成。聖靈降臨節是根據小麥的收成。秋節是基於水果豐收的基礎上。水果的五個品種有:石榴,無花果,紅棗,橄欖和葡萄。因此,節日是圍繞在以色列人稱為:"農作7種類 

這些節日的指示是在曠野中頒布給他們的,但是希伯來人無法在曠野中執行這些節日的慶祝,直到他們進入應許之地的土地后,他們才能開始歡慶收穫週期。


吹號角/贖罪的節慶THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS/YOM TERUAH: 

這個節日是由吹響銀色小號和號角來徵召【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】分別出來的人聚集在曠野的聖會。它最初是基於創世紀Tishre1 (羅馬歷9月/ 10月)來作為人類新一年的慶祝。人們聚集在一起於至高全能者創造的Tishre1这一天,而吹響小號和號角shofars共慶新年。

 

贖罪/贖罪日利未記25THE DAY OF ATONEMENT/YOM KIPPUR 

這是,現在仍然是以色列人民一年中最灰暗的一天。這個節慶實在是一個只為那些罪已被彌賽亞的寶血饒恕並潔淨了的人的節慶。對於那些拒絕了【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦】寶血作為代罪羔羊"犧牲的人,那些把永恆的盼望寄望在他們的善行和功績,依賴自己的功德或教堂的洗禮的人,這一天,他們须齋戒和哀悼自己的罪污,尋求被原諒和被塗抹乾淨。 

至於猶太人的大祭司,這是一年一度大祭司被允許進入至聖所,即約櫃停放的地方,【יְהֹוָה 雅吾瓦】的居所,呈上羔羊的血來為全國人民這一年的罪行請罪。(利未記16)這是以色列國人民得蒙救贖的一天。這也是那些拒絕【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】的救贖恩門,不選擇【יְהֹוָה 雅吾瓦】的約之人,被拒的"關門日”Closing Of The Gate.是【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】聖約之外的惡人被查封的詛咒日。 

這一天直到千禧年,被標誌著每五十年為一個禧年,全地當吹起"偉大的號角大聲宣告為奴的得到無條件的釋放(利未記25)。

此外,只有在贖罪日前夕,在耶路撒冷的猶太人宗教師,被他們的拉比Rabi允許而可以直接稱呼創造主的原名יְהֹוָה :發音為Yah-uwah雅吾瓦

 

住棚節慶THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES/THE FEAST OF BOOTHS/SUKKOT: 

希伯來這個節日,歷時8天,是為记念40年曠野中的流浪;使他們不會忘記【יְהֹוָה 雅吾瓦】如何帶領他們,餵養他們,給他們水喝,醫治好了他們,紀律處分他們,並帶他們進入"所承諾的應許之地,又得勝了他們四周所有的仇敵。這是住在帳棚中一個星期的節慶,記念他們在曠野的沙漠之旅。因此,在以色列每個住棚節,猶太人會建築succahs - 小帳棚- 並在裡頭吃喝住睡整整個8天。這是一個非常快樂的一周,在節日的最後一天,他們會帶著妥拉Torah在整條街道上一起跳舞歡慶【יְהֹוָה 雅吾瓦】的節日。 

7任命指定節慶都在彌賽亞的身上實現了。

 

逾越節節慶THE FEAST OF PASSOVER/PESACH 

יהושוע雅吾贖瓦】在阿筆10日進入耶路撒冷成為贖罪羔羊,被法利賽人和撒都該人,和一般人民百姓領導人來檢查。因為祂是在那個安息日的前一天進入耶路撒冷,接受了民眾向祂作为彌賽雅揮舞着棕櫚枝和其他標誌着奉獻的讚美和崇拜。(約翰福音12:12-16,馬太福音21:1-9) 

他們審問祂各種各樣的問題,但未能找到祂的任何過錯,找不到任何可以指責處死祂的理由。他們的領導人及羅馬的傀儡,檢查了祂整整四天,同時也被【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦】嚴峻的挑戰了他們自己的立場,最後認定祂也許是猶太人的王,而決定祂必須被處死。 (路加福音13:34-35,路加福音19:28-44;約翰11:47-53

他們不知道,祂放下祂的生命是為了贖回【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】的以色列全家,要更新與以色列全家(12支派)的"婚姻公約。在馬太福音1524,【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦】說:「我奉差派,只到以色列家迷失的羊那裡去。 

所羅門去世後,北國10個支派分散到撒馬利亞去。從此,他們變得盲目崇拜偶像,【יְהֹוָה 雅吾瓦】於是"給他們寫離婚書。(耶利米書3:8-背道的以色列行淫, 我為這緣故給他休書休他)猶大也是有罪的,但不會像北部的北國10個支派(又稱為以色列家,或以法蓮,或約瑟家)。雖然以法蓮在12個支派中得蒙長子繼承權的名分,他的子孫們就像以掃一樣,輕看了他長子的名分,而去嫖娼列國的神祗。因此,由786BCE起,他們都被分散到列邦列族的國家中,迷失去了自己的身份,完全被吸收到外邦人中。 (何西阿書第1-3給我們題示了這些人下落的線索)。今天,從歷史、考古、傳說和聖經的線索跟踪,我們知道,他們大多數在伊拉克/伊朗北部,並在西歐和美國落腳。因為在馬太105-6 ,【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦告訴門徒不要去找外邦人,而是去尋找"以色列家迷失的羊。當使徒們離開耶路撒冷,他們去北面和西面宣傳彌賽雅与祂子民恢復和好的好消息,勸勉他們悔改返回妥拉Toral,【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】要與祂子民更新婚約和呼召他們歸回创造主至高全能者. 

יהושוע雅吾贖瓦是根據並遵守妥拉Toral的预言引导,道成肉身來受死(婚約至死方休止),祂來到地上實際上是親身終止了【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】與以色列家之前的婚姻契約,好在祂死裡復活時,可以更新立下更好的婚約(Renewed Covenant),這次是根據祂自己的血來完成的婚約。耶利米書31:31-34:【יְהֹוָה 雅吾瓦】說:日子將到, 我要與以色列家和猶大家另立新約,32 不像我拉著他們祖宗的手,領他們出埃及地的時候, 與他們所立的約。我雖作他們的丈夫,他們​​卻背了我的約。這是【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】說的 。33 יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】說:那些日子以後,我與以色列家所立的約乃是這樣: 我要將我的律法放在他們裡面, 寫在他們心上。我要作他們的至高全能者,他們要作我的子民。34 他們各人不再教導自己的鄰舍和自己的弟兄說:你該認識【יְהֹוָה 雅吾瓦】,因為他們從最小的到至大的都必認識我。我要赦免他們的罪孽,不再記念他們的罪惡。這 是【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】 說 的 。這是"用祂的寶血與我們重新立下的盟約馬太福音26:28)。 

在這一新的盟約裡,祂包括了猶大家族,南部王國的3支派,並包含了以色列家公約之外的外邦人和在世界上的異教徒! (見以弗所書2:8-19)因此,祂的死亡,主要是恢復和贖回雅各家以色列北國失落的10支派。當他們被尋回时,他們會從心底持守【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】的妥拉婚約。正如我們稍後將看到的,所有關於聖靈降臨節鑰匙。 

יהושוע雅吾贖瓦死於阿筆Abib15日日落前。他是大祭司,犧牲了自己的性命。這標誌着我們虧欠【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】的債務,就是永恆的死亡,已經"全額償還了,現在我們在【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】的眼中,已被看為公義了。 (約翰福音19:30;歌羅西書2:13-15)申命記21:22-23 /加拉太書3:13"13 彌赛雅(基督)既為我們受( 原文是成) 了咒詛, 就贖出我們脫離律法的咒詛; 因為經上記著: 凡掛在木頭上都是被咒詛的。他完成了這一律法上的要求而保釋了我們,第二,出埃及記中12章有関守逾越節的指示。然而我們看到新約裏所提到的逾越節是包含了無酵節:"...彌雅亞,我們的逾越節,已為我們犧牲。因此,讓我們慶祝這個節日林前5:8  所以,我們守這節不可用舊酵......"

其實逾越節、無酵節,都包含在這一個星期裡,通常被稱為無酵餅節或"逾越節週慶。發酵餅或發酵面包,是昭示罪惡的画面。所以,我們守這節不可用舊酵.....吃無酵餅,或無發酵的食品。阿筆14日日落開始至到完成七天的節慶,通常以matzo替代吃麵包。"逾越節的晚餐,是在阿筆14日晚之前開始,并且,我們必須將我們房子裡所有發酵的食品移出我們的房子,這是【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】的命令。這是像徵性的,如哥林多前書5:7-8告訴我們,這是指把所有的罪從我們的生活中剪除。 

彌賽雅與祂的門徒在我們所說的週第3日晚上(或阿筆14日),慶祝一個特殊的逾越節。哥林多前書11:23-25​​​​告訴我們,他被出賣的當天晚上,他食用麵包和葡萄酒。 

這是一個詮釋了祂將作為第二天贖罪犧牲的準備餐。在這頓飯局中,祂透露了自己就是彌賽雅,舉起第三杯葡萄酒-救贖的酒杯-,祂宣稱這是祂立下更新公約的血。他向他們描繪了祂受死的畫面,然後在午夜時分出發到馬尼園去,在那裡祂被出賣。(見哥林多前書11:23 

馬太福音27:45-50週第4日阿筆Abib15日下午3:00的時候,祂去世後沒多久,祭司也在聖殿中宰殺代表每一個家庭的羔羊。" 看哪,至高全能者的羔羊,除去( 或譯:背負)世人罪孽的!約翰福音1:29)。 

祂必須在地心底下猶如約拿在鯨魚的肚子裡72小時,以應驗在馬太福音12:40יהושוע雅吾贖瓦的話。祂必須在犹太人的高安息日來臨之前入墓,除酵節開始之初,祂不得不被埋葬。 因此,約瑟夫快速的在彼拉多面前領取彌賽亞的身體,把祂放置在約瑟夫墓Aramathea的墓園中。http://www.yaharise.com/blog/category/21476213672608526310dead-sea-scroll 

除酵節 THE FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD 

彌賽雅在犹太人的高安息日來臨之前入墓,然後,阿比15日開始了為期一周的除酵節。在除酵節和高安息日之前, (馬可15:42;路加福音23:50-56)逾越節那天晚上人們吃烤羊肉,苦菜和無酵餅。 

關於除酵:【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦就是那一粒麥子,不落在地裡死了, 仍舊是一粒,若是死了,就結出許多子粒來。祂的死亡,帶來了豐盛的"果實。 (約翰福音12:24)在啟示錄中,我們看到了祂在地的中心走入陰間,並從撒旦手中取回了"死亡和陰間的鑰匙啟示錄1:18),然後他跨入天堂,也是當時在地的中心地帶(屬靈空間),宣告了所有從亞當直到當時屬於祂,分別為聖的子民的得贖。(2:26-3116:20-31)在祂復活的時候,祂為他們也為我們所有的人打開了天堂的大門。(28:50-52;4:8-10)在木头刑架上,祂告訴那強盜:"今天你跟我會在樂園裡,而不是天堂。當時天堂還沒有開放,直到祂從死裡復活,帶著"擄掠。 (路加福音23:43 

初熟之果的節慶THE FEAST OF FIRST FRUITS 

72小時後,在一周的第七天祂從死裡復活。

週六晚上太陽下山後,直到清晨的曙光,阿筆18日。當祂從墳墓中出來,祂已將我們從撒旦的權勢中釋放出來,為我們打開了天堂之門。祂是我們身躰得贖復活之人的"初熟之果。祂是"已睡之人的初熟之果。 (哥林多前書15:20-23 

由於以色列人越過紅海,是走在海底極深中心的乾地上,所以【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦也進入地的心臟深處,為我們帶出來了極具深度的新生命。祂把我們從撒旦和他所有的惡魔同盟中釋放出來,把他們在我們身上的力量摧毀了。正如法老擁有所有的希伯來人,視他們是他個人的財產,撒旦也這樣擁有我們。法老的權勢和他的軍隊被淹死後,希伯來人已不再是法老王的奴隸。同樣的,當【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦從地心中復活時,撒旦在我們身上的擁有權所屬權已經完全被取消了!哈利路雅! 

請留意,【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦在履行所有這些節日的時機與細節,與實際發生的事件分秒不差。  

五旬節的節慶THE FEAST OF PENTECOST – SHA'VU'OT 

יהושוע雅吾贖瓦從死裡復活后,從初熟之果的節慶算起整整50天,RUACH如阿,【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦】分别為聖的靈降臨到在耶路撒冷聖殿等候守望的門徒身上。正如以色列民眾過紅海之後,花了整整50天抵達西奈山【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】的山,在那裡יְהֹוָה 雅吾瓦】向祂的子民立約說話:"如今你們若實在聽從我的話, 遵守我的約, 就要在萬民中作屬我的子民, 因為全地都是我的。6 你們要歸我作祭司的國度, 為聖潔的國民。當時,造成"西奈山大震動: 在山上有雷轟、 閃電, 和密雲, 並且角聲甚大, 營中的百姓盡都發顫。出埃及記19 

而在耶路撒冷聖殿的門徒,等候到第50天。 在耶路撒冷的人都看到了火的舌頭落在他們各人頭上,聽到天上有響聲下來有如大風的聲音,並發出多國的語言來。 

在西奈山,一個歸屬於【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】祭司的國度誕生了。在耶路撒冷, 一個向全球所有大地居民宣告全人類得贖的啟示被傳開了。 

在五旬節,【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】的靈以火、風、和語言授權信徒在彌賽雅裡頭與天父的權能連接,祂用聖靈的火施洗他們以歸入彌賽亞裡頭,將他們帶入天父裡頭,教導他們【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】的話語,將每一個信徒在彌賽雅裡連接合而為一,傳授超自然的恩賜於他們以造就眾信徒。並把【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】的Toral(婚約條文)寫入到【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦的信徒的內心中,因此,我們可以按著祂王國的說明書,天國公民的指引而在地上開始了如同在天上的生活方式,活出在彌賽亞裡頭的喜樂,和平,愛和正義。

 

人類歷史已走過了近2000年的"夏天 - 耶利米書8:20,約翰4:35

 

節日之間的空檔是當糧食豐收過程完成後,夏天來了,實在太熱了,不適於種植和收穫的工作。 

自從彌賽雅復活升天后,我們在靈裡一直是處於夏天的季節。祂告訴我們: 你們豈不說『 到收割的時候還有四個月』 嗎?我告訴你們, 舉目向田觀看, 莊稼已經熟了( 原文是發白) , 可以收割了。 

五旬節慶在斯萬Sivan5/ 6月),直到Tishre住棚節慶水果收穫的那個月,剛好4個月。祂告訴我們"出去,為自己多結生命的果子; 以及收割"大地的果實,就是世人墮落的靈魂。 (約翰福音15:1-7 

雅各书5:7-8 7 弟兄們哪, 你們要忍耐, 直到主來。看哪, 農夫忍耐等候地裡寶貴的出產, 直到得了秋雨春雨。 8 你們也當忍耐, 堅固你們的心, 因為主來的日子近了。 

秋雨為秋季豐收的果實而下降,春雨是在大麥收穫前春天下降的雨。雅各书5:7-8談論到天父,急切的等待銀色小號吹響,贖罪節的"果實豐收時刻。這是指人類的靈魂得贖,成為【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦天國的收穫;一旦所預告的分別為聖的靈大澆灌臨到人類,大權能向全地傾倒,彰顯天父【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】的榮耀,以及彌賽雅第二次返回大地。這就是第一代使徒和門徒向人間的宣告和見證。他們到處傳講悔改和歸返【יְהֹוָה 雅吾瓦】,與【יְהֹוָה 雅吾瓦】復和,恢復以色列家回到【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】妥拉Toral教導的好消息,这就是第一代使徒和門徒所傳講的"天國的福音,他们進入到各個地區領域,尋找"以色列家迷失的羊,並宣布彌賽雅的死亡和復活,天國降臨,恢復人們的信仰和實踐以托拉Toral為基礎的教導。以西結書18:30-32; 33:11-19 

關於在第一世紀的中期,有一大批接受彌賽亞的死亡和復活的希臘信徒,但是他們卻拒絕了天父【יְהֹוָה 雅吾瓦】和祂國度的律法妥拉Toral,從而遠離彌賽亞【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦和祂的使徒們的教訓,於是另外形成他們自己的教派。其中,他們被稱為"基督徒 "基督教” Christia不是一個新名詞,在埃及的太陽神塞拉皮斯Serapis的崇拜者,也被稱為"基督徒,他們的宗教領袖,被稱為"基督主教。在羅馬,基督教成為羅馬帝國的官方宗教於325CE。因此,在過去的1700多年中,希臘/羅馬宗教的基督教已經成為了約1.8億人的龐大機構,像早期的希臘人,因為人們享受永生的想法,但拒絕承擔責任,拒絕【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】的妥拉Toral和祂的國度。現在,我們已經來到屬靈夏季結束的時刻,【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦以色列的彌賽亞,要來恢復祂給我們留下的單純的信仰。祂早期的使徒和門徒,都是誠信彌賽亞和妥拉Toral教導的信仰者。祂說,只有"少數,會發現真理,並且走在祂裡頭。現在,我們正在積極準備好屬靈秋季預言應驗的節日到來,祂的第二次回來,祂將修復地上一切的創造,以及祂與祂的子民居住在地上的千禧安息年到來。

 

吹號角節- 贖罪節THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS – YOM TERUAH 

這節慶描繪了彌賽雅在空中與祂的信徒相會的情景。因為祂將帶著天父的震怒來懲罰惡人,但首先祂要讓那些信靠祂在主裡已經死亡的人復活,以及在祂的到來時仍然在地上活著的信徒一同在空中與祂的相會。這就是祂所謂的"大地的收割季節。 (馬太13 

他有一個明確的返回地上的路程。他首先從東方出發然後到西奈半島,然後是直接到古代以東Edom北部,從亞喀巴港port of Aqaba,直到"國王的高速公路”King's Highway,再到巴蘭山Mt. Paran,超過古鎮的提幔Teman,到珥山Mt. Seir,就是佩特拉Petra,約旦,然後到橄欖山- 馬太福音24:27-31;以賽亞書63:1-6;哈巴谷3,申命記33:2-3和其他約220有關此題目的經文。 

吹號角節是在每年的Tishre 1。在羅馬日曆這節超過3天,希伯來創世日曆71日。因此,"沒有人知道是哪一天或哪一時辰將會吹響小號(羊角/羊角號)。第三支號角已經吹過了,大家正在等待"最後的那支號角被吹響起來,這標誌著天上的門閘會被打開,彌賽亞會從天上降臨來召集那些屬於祂因信稱義的信徒。這就是猶太人所盼望的救世主彌賽亞, 以及【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦的追隨者所等候的彌賽雅。 

彌賽雅只能根據天父【יְהֹוָה 雅吾瓦】的既定計劃來履行,祂必須在Tishre節日第一或第二天到來。當然,在地上總是有2天的日期同時出現。彌賽亞給我們一個提示:當這一天來臨前3年半前,有一個人,一個世界的統治者在這世界的午台上出現,並且在聖殿山上Temple Mount統治世界;這將作為祂回返人世间的一個標誌,然後聖經的話告訴我們,那3年半是根椐希伯來的農业太阳曆一年360+4天的算法,祂會回來。祂並不想讓屬於祂在黑暗中的光明之子不曉得這個先知預言的日子。"1弟兄們,關於時間和日期,我不需要寫信告訴你們, 2 因為你們自己很清楚。對於那些屬於祂的人,那些殷勤禱告守候祂的到來者,祂的到來並不像一個"夜間的賊"5 因為你們屬於光明(善良),屬於白晝,我們不屬於黑夜或黑暗(邪惡)。” 9 因為至高全能者選擇我們不是讓我​​們承受他的憤怒,而是讓我們通過我們的主【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦】彌赛亚獲得拯救。10 他為我們而死,因此,不論我們是生還是死,當【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦來臨時,帖撒羅尼迦前書5:1-10,我們知道,光明之子都知道祂到來的節日季節。http://www.yaharise.com/blog/category/21476213672608526310dead-sea-scrollhttp://man-child.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/YHWH-Qumran-Calendar.pdf

 

聖經裡有220個經文有關祂第二次再來的信息。 帖前4:13-18;哥林多前書15:51-58;啟示錄11:15-17;腓立比書3:20-21;啟示錄19:11-16;撒迦利亞書14: 1-5; 猶大書14-15。他在"最後第七個關乎災難的小號吹響的時候到來。從哥林多前書1552和啟示錄11:15-19,我們清楚看到【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦帶著天父的憤怒到來,這是非常嚴重的,沒有祂的保護,沒有人能夠抵擋這個災難。所以,吹號角節是我們歡慶彌賽亞的召會,同時卻是祂審判恶人的日子。這是一個分別歸祂為聖的日子,是正義與邪惡分離的一天。

 

贖罪日節THE DAY OF ATONEMENT – YOM KIPPUR

 

吹號角節- 贖罪節是YOM TERUAH十天後為全國贖罪日節的開始。

這副畫面描繪彌賽亞完成婚姻和婚禮宴席後的第一個動作。

 

在吹號角節- 贖罪節YOM TERUAH到贖罪日節有7天的時間,彌賽亞會迎娶祂的新婦,祂們將入新房7天才出來與參加婚禮的賓客和服務員相聚,共同歡慶羔羊的盛宴。

 

(有關彌賽亞如何履行古老的婚宴的所有要求,古老的猶太婚禮儀式,其中包括婚禮公約的條款,用自己的鮮血密封的美麗事蹟,將另外撰文說明。並使用現代術語以幫助一般人能理解。)

 

婚宴後,彌賽亞和他的新婦將前往耶路撒冷。他將宣召各國各邦到約沙谷Jehoshaphat,根據他們如何對待以色列人民而施行審判。約沙法谷是直接面對耶路撒冷在東門,在汲淪谷的北方。這裡是猶大良善的國王,潔淨被邪惡的諸王玷污後的聖殿的地方,在這裡曾經大量的焚燒偶像和焚燒那些邪惡的祭司。在這裡,彌賽亞將坐下來劃分界線,將判斷誰是誰非。 (約珥23馬太福音25:31-46

 

由彌賽亞履行成就贖罪日的其他方面,就是在這一天,"以色列全家得救,全國將被贖回。這一天,祂要宣布所有的這些忠實的以色列人,不分年齡男女,他們在【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】的眼中被看為義,因為【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦我們的大祭司,在這一天進入【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】至聖所,把祂自己的鮮血灑在施恩寶座上,為雅各全家贖罪。 (羅馬書11:26;36:22-38;耶利米書31:31-34:耶利米書50:20和數百條其他經文)。這是恢復以色列南北兩家成為一個完整性的"新人的一天,以西結書37:15-28,在此,祂再次將以色列家還原成為一個王國。

 

住棚節THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES

 

贖罪日YOM KIPPUR 5天後是住棚節THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES,這一天,【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦】回到人間與人同住1000年。(啟示錄20:11,第22章

 

在千禧年時,本節慶將要求所有的人每年出席,否則,將有刑罰- 撒迦利亞14:16-19"16 所有來攻擊耶路撒冷列國中剩下的人, 必年年上來敬拜大君王萬軍之【יְהֹוָה 雅吾瓦】, 並守住棚節。 17 地上萬族中,凡不上耶路撒冷敬拜大君王萬軍之【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】的,必無雨降在他們的地上​​

 

這原是彌賽亞第一次到來誕生的時間。祂設"帳幕在我們中間” - 約翰福音1:14 14 道成了肉身, 住在我們中間。這也將是恢復所有的萬物的時間。使徒行傳3:19-20、約翰福音7:37-39,我們讀到: "節期的末日,就是最大之日,【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦】站着高聲說: 人若渴了,可以到我這裡來喝。38 信我的人就如經上所說: 從他腹中要流出活水的江河來。39 יהושוע雅吾贖瓦】這話是指著信他之人要受分別為聖的靈說的。

 

彌賽亞的新婦將要與她的新郎一同作王,統治萬邦。不僅是為這1000年的,並且在新耶路撒冷,直到永遠。啟示錄19-22

在聖經中,有許多經文​​說明這一段和平與繁榮的日子。但是,到時所有現代技術將被銷毀,我們將回到一個農業社會。人們將工作6天,在第7日守安息日,他將休息。他將出席在耶路撒冷的第七個節日,並保持和遵守妥拉Toral的教導。【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦】和那些與祂一同統治天下的追隨者,將實施"鐵棒的律法。現在就通過彌賽亞與יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】設立盟約關係的人是明智的,保護祂的律法/盟約Toral,那些忠心服從祂的人是有福的,將會享受在彌賽亞裡頭很大的權利。

 

這個節日也描繪了未來在1000禧年年底,榮耀的天父將會到來。祂將解放捆鎖在無底坑中的惡者,並將牠与牠所有的同類一網打盡,向牠們施行審判並刑罰牠們,把牠們扔進公正的火湖里。祂將創建一個新天新地,並把新耶路撒冷城帶到這個個新天新地上,在那裡祂將會永遠作王。

 

光明節和普珥節The Festivals of Hanukkah and Purim

 

光明節通常落在圣历里的第12月。約翰福音10:22顯示,【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦】在這個節日中去聖殿。這也被稱為修殿節或奉獻日的節慶。這是一個圍繞167​​​​BCE猶太人民的歷史性勝利的慶祝,沒有它,我們不會有希伯來文聖經。當時,希臘希望摧毀任何有关希伯來人的文化。猶太人進行了回擊,並贏了這場爭戰。這個節日也預告了在末日,將有【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦】的追隨者竭力抵抗"敵彌賽亞”An-ti Messiah的逼害,"敵彌賽亞企圖摧毀任何與【יהושוע雅吾瓦】和祂的Torah有關的人事物。普珥節Purim是從以斯帖記來的。它記錄了當時的猶太人從一個定意要銷滅他們的領導者的攻擊中得到勝利的故事。這也將在大災難期間重現。那將在位的世界統治者必然會試圖摧毀所有遵守托拉Toral的猶太人和各地的信徒。

 

聖經並不要求我們慶祝這兩個節日,就像【יהושוע雅吾贖瓦】那樣,我們记念這兩個節日,是因為我們正在向他們學習如何在大逼迫中得到大勝利。

 

這些節日是屬於那些追隨【יְהֹוָה雅吾瓦】,遵守着每週安息日的人的遺產。這些節日分別了哪些人是屬於以色列的聖者彌賽亞的,而哪些人不是。遵守【יְהֹוָה 雅吾瓦】的7節日和祂的日曆是不費力的,不沉重的;它是輕鬆和喜樂的,通過服從祂的節慶,安息日Shabbats和【יְהֹוָה 雅吾瓦】美好的律例/婚約,我們將保持一個健康,平衡的生活方式,心靈,情感,精神和身體都興旺愉快。Ahmien (诚心所愿)ENGLISH:http://man-child.com/?p=3291

YAHUWAH’S SEVEN APPOINTMENTS WITH MAN THE OUTLINE OF THE PLAN OF SALVATION AND REDEMPTION 
 
Leviticus 23: 2, 4, 37, 44  "Feasts” in Hebrew is "mo-aw-daw”, which means "to fix by agreement or appointment, to meet, to gather together at a set time, assemble at a set time—an appointment or a fixed time or season, a place of meeting, a signal as appointed before time, an appointed sign”.  (#4150 James Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible/Hebrew Dictionary) This is the same word for "season” in Genesis 1:14, describing the purpose of the sun and moon, to create seasons for harvest.  Elohim’s planetary order of the sun, stars and planets are perfect, to the second at all times in their orbits, or we could not exist on this planet.  Elohim uses the same words to describe His set-apart appointments with man with to-the-second timing.  These seven Festivals are the outline of His plan of salvation and redemption of His people--Israel.  Leviticus 23 gives the overview of all these appointments. 
 
I Thessalonians 5:1 "But of the times and seasons brethren, I have no need to write to you”.  The believers in Thessalonica understood that Paul was referring to the appointments of Yahuwah of the plan of salvation.  The new believers went to the synagogue to learn the Torah of Yahuwah, and to participate in His set-apart signs and festivals.   The word for "times/seasons” in the Greek is "kairos”, #2540 in the Strong’s Greek dictionary means: "a specific, appointed time for an occasion, a fixed time”.  As Father keeps the planets, sun, moon and stars moving in perfect order to the fraction of a second, so He fulfills His set appointments with man, literally.   The seven Festivals/Feasts outlined in Leviticus 23, were given to the covenant-keeping children of Israel by Yahuwah, so that they could rehearse every year, the whole plan of His salvation from beginning to end. 
 
The word "convocation” (KJV) in Leviticus 23:2-4 is #4744, "mik-raw”, in the Strong’s Hebrew dictionary.  It means: "something called out, a public meeting, a rehearsal, assembly”.  These meetings, or rehearsals, were to be celebrated forever.  In eternity future, these seven appointments will be celebrated with Yahushua and Yahuwah on earth with His people. For approximately 4,000 years, the Father Yahuwah has had His people rehearsing all of His plans for their redemption and eternal blessing.  The word "holy” means to be "set-apart”.  These seven Festivals are to set apart His people unto Himself.  Within these Festivals are "high Sabbaths”, which are also to set His people apart unto Himself, as are the weekly Sabbaths from Friday night at sundown to Saturday night at sundown.  These are set-apart signs of who belongs to Yahuwah, Elohim of Israel, and His Salvation, Yahushua, and who does not belong to Him.  He has set-apart dietary laws also, so that our bodies function as the Creator designed them.  The Instructions of Yahuwah  are only for our absolute and maximum good--in mind, emotions, spirit and body.  He is a such a good Father!   Four of these appointments have been fulfilled, and three remain to be fulfilled.  We look back on the four and rejoice.  We look forward to the last three with great expectation, for they picture the coming of Messiah Yahushua  and His Kingdom on earth.  When we come to Yahushua for salvation, we enter  into a Covenant relationship with Yahuwah through His blood and His resurrection.  We give to Him all that we have and are after repentance for our sin, and He gives to us Himself and all that He is and has.  Repentance cuts the ties with anything that is not of His liking.  In this Covenant relationship we have responsibilities to fulfill our part of the Covenant, which is obedience to His set-apart teachings and instructions, called the Torah (Instructions and Teachings).  The Torah is contained within the first five books of the Scriptures, which is the foundation on which the Prophets, the Writings and the Messianic Scriptures are built.  Without an understanding of His foundation, we cannot properly understand the full ramifications of our salvation, our purpose for life here, or our eternal destiny.  We cannot understand what is required of us to please the King of the Kingdom, and what is right ruling for our good standing in His Kingdom.  Without Hebraic understanding of His Covenant with His people, and His eternal plan for His people, we cannot understand our destiny.  By observing His Festivals His way, we understand the full plan of salvation. In Psalm 23, we read: "He guides me in the tracks of righteousness, for the sake of His name”.  (Hebrew Scriptures Translation) The "tracks of righteousness” is the yearly path of the Festivals, and the weekly path of the Shabbat/Sabbath.   In Exodus 31:16 and Leviticus 23, the Feasts are called "perpetual statutes”.  As we see in Isaiah 66:22-23, even when the Father comes here, and creates a new heaven and new earth, the new moon celebration, the Shabbat, and the festivals of Yahuwah will be practiced.   
 
THE SEVEN APPOINTMENTS OF YAHUWEH
 
THE SPRING FESTIVALS 
 
First I will give the Hebrew origin of the celebration, and then give the fulfillment of it through Yahushua and the Ruach Yahuwah. 
 
PASSOVER/PESACH:  
Exodus 12 Yahuwah’s New Year Yahuwah changed the day of the New Year (Exodus 12:2).  The days had been counted from creation, beginning with first day of the month of Tishre (Rome’s  September/October).  But, He changed the New Year’s Day to the first day of the month of Abib or Nisan (Rome’s March/April).  He did this to begin the cycle of the seven festivals in the first month of their salvation from Egypt.  So Abib 1 is New Year’s on His redemption calendar.   This Feast began the plan of His salvation for the deliverance of His people.  The procedures required for this Feast were for the purpose of delivering them from the 10th plague on Egypt—the death of the firstborn.  On this night at, by following Yahuwah’s instructions, they were delivered from the death angel that passed over Egypt at midnight, killing the first born of man and animals.  
By carefully following His instructions, we avoid the troubles that come on most people--in this life and for eternity.   On the 10th day of Abib (March/April), the lamb was to be brought for inspection into their homes for 4 days, to make sure it was without spot or blemish. The Lamb was killed "between the evenings”, which is between 3:00PM and sundown on the 14th of Abib.  It was eaten after sunset.  The lamb was roasted with a stake running up through its body.  The intestines were taken out and wrapped around the lamb’s head.  It was called "the crowned sacrifice”.  The roasted lamb was then to be eaten quickly.  They had no time for their bread to rise, so they made unleavened bread.  The blood of the lamb was applied to the top of the door and the sides of their house.  They were to have their sandals on their feet, and their bread in their bowls and be ready to leave as soon as the death angel passed over Egypt at midnight on the 14th.  When the death angel saw the blood on the doors of the Hebrew’s houses, he would not kill any first born in their houses, or of their animals. The death angel "passed over” the houses of the Hebrews, thus giving the name of the feast—Passover, or in Hebrew "Pesach”.  
 
THE FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD:  
Exodus 12:17-18   The Hebrews hastily left in the middle of night of the early morning on 15th of Abib, after the death of the firstborn of the Egyptians at midnight, at the command of Pharaoh, with all their livestock and possessions from Rameses.  They traveled by the light of the full moon toward Succoth to pick up the bones of Joseph.  At the time of their leaving Egypt in haste, they had unleavened bread to eat.  By the time that Pharaoh’s grief turned to rage, he was assembling his army to go after the Hebrews.  The Scriptures say there were 600,000 men plus women and children—so it supposed there were over 2 million Hebrews in all with their livestock and possessions.   
 
THE FEAST OF FIRST FRUITS:  
Exodus 14 The Hebrew people were trapped in a canyon that exited at the Red Sea, and Pharaoh was pursuing.  He knew that he had given them three days to go into the wilderness to worship their Elohim.   Because of his pursuit, however, they could not return in the three days, thus they had to keep running to escape Pharaoh’s wrath.    On the 17th of Abib, they reached the Sea while it was night.  The Red Sea was before them, and Pharaoh and all of his army was behind them.  It was here that the greatest miracle on earth occurred so that they could be delivered, and Pharaoh and his army killed, thus releasing the Hebrews from their ownership by Pharaoh.    As the sea parted for the Hebrews to walk across on  dry land, the sea came back together to drown Pharaoh and his army, loosing his ownership over all the Hebrews forever.   
 
THE FEAST OF SHA’VU’OT/THE FEAST OF WEEKS/THE FEAST OF PENTECOST:  
Exodus 19 and 20 
The Hebrews received the Torah (the Teachings and Instructions of Yahuwah), which were the terms of the marriage covenant between Elohim and His people, at the "mountain of Elohim”--Sinai/Horeb.  Mt. Sinai is in modern Saudi Arabia, in the Midian mountains, as the Bible tells us.  It took them 50 days to reach the "mountain of Elohim” from the day they crossed the Red Sea.  "Pentecost” is Greek for "fifty”.  The terms of the marriage covenant are covered in the 10 Commandments.  It outlines the character of the one He wants to be His Bride.  The 10 Commandments were written with the "finger of Yahuwah”.  Yahushua tells us that the "finger of Yahuwah” is the Ruach Yahuwah.   
 
THE FALL FESTIVALS

The Festivals of Yahuwah are all based on harvest cycles.  The first three Spring Festivals are based on the barley harvest.  Pentecost is based on the wheat harvest.  The Autumn Festivals are based on the fruit harvest.  The five species of fruit are: pomegranates, figs, dates, olives, and grapes.  Thus the Festivals revolve around what Israel calls: "the seven species”.   This is why instructions were given in the wilderness for these festivals, but the Hebrews could not celebrate these Festivals until they entered the land and began the harvest cycles. 
 
THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS/YOM TERUAH:  
This Festival commemorated the blowing of the silver trumpets and the shofar to gather the people together for set-apart convocations in the wilderness.  It was originally the New Year celebrated from the day of creation, on Tishre 1 (September/October).   The people gathered together to honor the first sliver of the new moon, which marked the day of creation, on Tishre 1, with the blowing of trumpets and shofars.   
 
THE DAY OF ATONEMENT/YOM KIPPUR:  
Leviticus 25 This was and still is, the most somber day of the year for the nation of Israel.  It is a feast only for those whose sin is forgiven by the blood of Messiah.  It is a day of fasting and mourning for those whose sin needs to be forgiven, or whose eternal hope rests on their good works, or church baptism, or those Jews who  have no blood sacrifice now because they have rejected the blood of Yahushua.   It was the day that the High Priest went into the most set-apart place, where the Ark of the Covenant was, and where the presence of Yahuwah dwelt, to present the blood of a goat, for the covering of the sin of the nation for that year.  (Leviticus 16) It was the day of national salvation.  It was also  considered the day of the "closing of the gate”—when the wicked who chose to be outside of His Covenant were sealed to damnation.  This day also marked the years until Jubilee, which was declared every fiftieth year with the sound of a "great shofar” (Leviticus 25).  Only on the eve of Yom Kippur, in Jerusalem, are the religious Jews allowed, by their Rabbis, to pronounce the Name of Yahuwah.   
 
THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES/THE FEAST OF BOOTHS/SUKKOT:
This Festival, lasting 8 days, was for the Hebrews to celebrate their wanderings for 40 years, so that they would not forget how Yahuwah led them, fed them, gave them water, healed them, disciplined them, and brought them into the "promised land” victorious over all their enemies.  It was a week to dwell in booths, or tents (tabernacles), to remember the desert journey. Thus in Israel each Sukkot, the Jews put up succahs--little booths--and eat in them and sleep in them, and have parties in them for the whole 8 days of the Festival.  It is a very joyful week.  On the last day of the Festival they dance with the Torah throughout the streets, in celebration of the Word of Yahuwah. 
 
THE SEVEN APPOINTMENTS AND THEIR FULFILLMENT IN MESSIAH 
 
THE FEAST OF PASSOVER/PESACH  
Yahushua entered Jerusalem on the 10th of Abib, as the Lamb, for inspection by the leaders of the Pharisees and the Sadducees, and the people in general.  It is generally called "Palm Sunday”, because of the praise and worship that Messiah received, the waving of palm branches and other signs of devotion, as He entered Jerusalem on that Sunday.  (John 12:12-16; Matthew 21:1-9)  They asked Him all sorts of questions, but could find nothing wrong in Him.  They inspected Him for the full four days, and the leaders, puppets of Rome, realizing that He was challenging their positions perhaps as King of the Jews, decided that He must be killed, though they could find nothing to accuse Him of rightfully.  (Luke 13:34-35; Luke 19:28-44; John 11:47-53) They did not know that He had come to lay down His life, to redeem the House of Israel back to Yahuwah, renewing the Covenant also with the House of Judah.  He said in Matthew 15:24, "I have not come except for the lost sheep of the House of Israel”.  The northern 10 tribes, after Solomon’s death, separated into Samaria.  They became so idolatrous, that Yahuwah had to "write them a bill of divorce”.  (Jeremiah 3:8) Judah was sinful, but not like the northern 10 tribes (called the House of Israel, or the House of Ephraim, or the House of Joseph).  Though the tribe of Ephraim held the birthright of all  the 12 tribes, his descendants, like Esau despised his birthright and went whoring after the gods of the nations.   Therefore, by 786BCE they were all  scattered into the gentile nations, and lost their identity, being absorbed by the gentiles. (Hosea chapters 1-3 give us a clue as to who these people are today).  Today, from history, archeology, legend, and Biblical tracing, we know that most of them ended up places north of Iraq/Iran, and in Western Europe  and America.  Because--in Matthew 10:5-6--Yahushua told the disciples not to go to the gentiles, but to go to the "lost sheep of the House of Israel”, when they did leave Jerusalem, they went north and west with the reconciling message of Messiah and return to Torah and their Elohim, Yahuwah.   Yahushua actually  came, by Torah instructions, to die, in order to break the then existing marriage contract with the House of Israel, so that He could rise again, and remarry her under the renewed covenant in His own blood.  Excepts from Jeremiah 31:31-34: "`Behold, the days are coming’, says Yahuwah, `when 
I shall make a renewed covenant with the house of Israel, and with the House of Judah,… I will put My Torah in their hearts.  And I shall be their Elohim, and they shall be My people…for they shall all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them’, declares Yahuwah. `For I shall forgive their crookedness, and remember their sin no more’”. This was the "renewed covenant in His blood” (Matthew 26:28).   In this renewed covenant, He could include also the House of Judah, the southern Kingdom with its 3 tribes, and also the gentiles outside of the covenant with Israel—those pagans and heathen, out in the world.  (See Ephesians 2:8-19)   His death, therefore, was mainly to restore and redeem the House of Israel, the northern 10 tribes of Jacob, back into the fold, so that they would keep, from their heart, the Torah of Yahuwah.  As we will see later, that is what Pentecost is all about. Yahushua died near sunset on the 14th of Abib.  He was the High Priest, who sacrificed Himself.  This signified that the debt that we owed to Yahuwah, which was eternal death, had been "paid in full”, and now we were made just in the sight of Yahuwah. (John 19:30; Colossians 2:13-15) Deuteronomy 21:2223/Galatians 3:13: "Cursed be anyone who hangs on a tree”.   He hung on a stake, a pole--a tree.  He fulfilled, to the second, the instructions for the Passover Lamb of Exodus 12.   I Corinthians 5:7-8:  "…Messiah, our Passover, has been sacrificed for us.  Let us therefore, celebrate the Feast...”   The Festival of Passover, of Unleavened Bread, and of First Fruits covers one week, and is generally called the Feast of Unleavened Bread or "Passover Week”.  The unleavened bread, or matzo, is a picture of sin.  No leavened bread, or any product with leaven in it, is eaten from sunset beginning the 15th of Abib until the completion of the seven-day Feast—matzo is what is usually eaten in place of bread.  Before the night of the Passover meal (the "Seder Supper”), the night that begins the 15th of Abib, we must get all leaven out of  our houses, as Yahuwah commands.  This is symbolic, as I Corinthians 5:7-8 tells us of getting out the sin from our lives.  
 
Messiah celebrated a special Passover meal with His disciples, on what we call Tuesday night (or the beginning of Abib 14).  Notice, this "Last Supper” did not include the Passover Lamb or the bitter herbs.  I Corinthians 11:23-25 tells us that on the night He was betrayed, He took the bread and the wine. It was a preparatory meal that explained His coming sacrifice.  In this meal He revealed Himself as the Messiah, taking the third cup of wine—the cup of redemption—and proclaiming that it was the renewed covenant in His blood.  He gave them the picture of His death, and then proceeded at midnight to go out to the Garden of Gethsemane where He was betrayed.  (See I Corinthians 11:23)   He died not long after 3:00PM (Matthew 27:45-50) The 4th day of the week the 14th of Abib, at the time that the priests were also killing the Passover Lambs for each household in the Temple.  "Behold the Lamb of Elohim that takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29).   He had to be in the earth, as Jonah was in the belly of the whale, for 72 hours, to fulfill Yahushua’s words in Matthew 12:40, before sundown.  Sundown would begin the 15th of Abib.  He had to go into the ground before the beginning of the mid-week Shabbat, the High Shabbat, for the beginning of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.  Therefore, since the High Shabbat, and beginning of the Feast of Unleavened Bread began at sundown, He was taken from the stake and placed in the tomb of Joseph of Aramathea, before sundown.  That is why the quick attempt of Joseph to claim the body of Messiah before Pilate. 
 
THE FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD
Messiah was buried before sunset, which began the 15th of Abib, and the weeklong Feast, before the High Shabbat of Unleavened Bread. (Mark 15:42; Luke 23:50-56) That night the Passover meal was eaten with roasted lamb and bitter herbs and unleavened bread.     Regarding Unleavened Bread:  Yahushua was the "corn of wheat” that was put into the ground in death, which brought forth "much fruit”.  (John 12:24)  In Revelation, we read that He entered into Hades in the heart of the earth, and took "the keys of death and hell” away from Satan.  (Revelation 1:18)  He then stepped over into Paradise, also at that time in the heart of the earth, and proclaimed His coming to all those set-apart ones from Adam until that present time.  (Acts 2:26-31 and Luke 16:20-31)   At His resurrection, He opened heaven’s gates to them, and to all of us.  (Matthew 28:50-52; Ephesians 4:8-10)  He told the thief on the stake, "Today you will be with me in paradise”, not heaven.  He did not open heaven until He was raised from the dead and took "captivity captive” with Him. (Luke 23:43) 
 
THE FEAST OF FIRST FRUITS  
He arose from the dead after 72 hours, "early on the first day of the week”—or  after sundown on Sabbath night, towards the dawn of the morning, of Abib 18.  As He came up out of the grave, He loosed us from Satan’s power over us, opening heaven’s gates for us.  He is our "first fruits”.  He is the "first fruits of those who slept”.  (I Corinthians 15:20-23)  As the children of Israel crossed the Red Sea, going into its depths on dry ground, and coming up out of its depths to new life in a new land, so Yahushua in going into the heart of the earth, and coming up out of the heart of the  earth, in our place, caused Satan and all of his hosts of demons to be loosed from us, their power over us destroyed.  Pharaoh owned all of the Hebrew people—they were his possessions.  Satan owned us totally.   Pharaoh and all his army was drowned, thus the Hebrew people were no longer slaves, owned by Pharaoh.  When Yahushua came up out of the heart of the earth, all ownership by Satan over us was cancelled!  HalleluYAH!  Remember that Yahushua fulfilled all of these feasts to the second in His timing, related to the actual event.
    
THE FEAST OF PENTECOST – SHA’VU’OT
Exactly 50 days after Yahushua rose from the dead, counting from the Feast of First Fruits, the Ruach Yahuweh descended on the waiting Apostles and  disciples in the Temple in Jerusalem, just as it took exactly 50 days after the crossing of the Red Sea to reach Mt. Sinai.  The people in Jerusalem saw the tongues of fire, and heard the wind, and the people speaking in the languages of the earth.  Rabbi Joseph Hertz in his Authorized Daily Prayer Book, page 791, states: "The revelation at Sinai, it was taught, was given in desert territory, which belonged to no one nation exclusively; and it was heard not by Israel alone, but by the inhabitants of all the earth. The Divine Voice divided itself into the seventy tongues then spoken on earth, so that all the children of men might understand its world embracing and man redeeming message.”  The Torah tells us that there is one Torah for all mankind.  It is the will of Yahuwah for all people! The Word tells that Mt. Sinai shook, and that there was a loud blast from a  shofar in the sky, and it was smoking from the fire that came with His presence.  There was a mighty wind, and the people were terrified (Exodus 19).  On Pentecost, He came with fire, and wind, and languages.  He came to empower the believers in Messiah with Himself, to baptize them into Messiah, to bring them to the Father, to teach them the Word as Yahuwah would have it taught, to unify the believers into one people in Messiah, to impart supernatural gifts to His people for the edification of the congregation of His people, and to write the Torah, which Yahushua had expanded, into our heart, so that we would keep His Kingdom Instructions with joy, peace, love and righteousness.   
 
 
ALMOST 2000 YEARS OF "SUMMER” -- Jeremiah 8:20; John 4:35 The time between the festivals is the time when the grain harvests are finished, and it is too hot to plant and reap, for the summer has come.   We have been in summer time, spiritually, since the resurrection of Messiah.  He told us: "Don’t say there are four months and then comes the harvest, but lift up your eyes, and look on the fields, for they are white already to harvest”. Between the month of Sivan (May/June), when Pentecost occurs, until the month of Tishre and the fruit harvest, are 4 months.   He told us go forth and bear fruit from ourselves as well as to harvest the "fruit of the earth”, which are the souls of fallen man. (John 15:1-7) James 5:7-8: "Behold, the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, and has long patience for it, until he receives the early and latter rain.  Be also patient, establish your hearts, for the coming of Messiah draws near”.  The early rains come in the Autumn at the fruit harvest, and the latter rains come in the Spring before the Barley harvest.  James 5:7-8 is talking about the Father, who waits for the "fruit harvest” at the Feast of Trumpets, Yom Teruah.  This is a harvest of the souls of mankind into His Kingdom, following the outpouring of the Ruach--then the Messiah will return.  It is the time for the proclamation of the "The besorah of the Kingdom”, the message of 
repentance and return, to restore Israel back to Yahuwah and the Torah.  That is what the first Apostles and disciples did—they went into the areas where the "lost sheep of Israel” went, and proclaimed the Messiah’s death and resurrection, and the Kingdom to come, restoring the Torah as the foundation of believe and practice to His people.  (Ezekiel 18:30-32; 33:11-19) About the mid-1st century, Greek believers in Messiah’s death and resurrection, rejected the Father Yahuwah and His Kingdom’s Torah, thus breaking away from the teachings of Messiah Yahushua and His Apostles, to form their own sect, which they called "Christian”.  "Christian” was not a new term, for the worshippers of the sun god Serapis, in Egypt, had also been calling themselves "Christians”, and their religious leaders were called "the Bishops of Christ”.  Under Rome, Christianity became the official religion of the Roman Empire in 325CE.  So, in the last 1,700 years, the Greco/Roman religion of Christianity has become a gigantic institution of approximately 1.8 billion people, because people, like the early Greeks, enjoy the idea of eternal life, but refuse the responsibility to Yahuwah, His Torah, and His Kingdom.  Now, at the end of the time of spiritual summer, Yahushua, the Messiah of Israel, is restoring to us the simple faith that He left to us.  The faith that was taught by His early Apostles and disciples, who were believers in Messiah and also Torah observant.  He said that "few” would find the truth and walk in it.  Now we are preparing or the fulfillments of the Fall Feasts—His coming, His restorations, and His dwelling on earth with His people. 
 
THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS – YOM TERUAH 
 
This Feast pictures the meeting with Messiah in the air, as He comes with the  wrath of the Father upon the wicked, and comes to resurrect all those who have died in Him, and all who are still alive on the earth at His coming.  This is what He calls the "harvesting of the earth”.  (Matthew 13) He has a definite path of return.  He comes from the East to Mt. Sinai first, then comes directly north over ancient Edom, from the port of Aqaba, up the King’s Highway, to Mt. Paran, over the ancient town of Teman, over Mt. Seir, in which is Petra, Jordan, and then on to the Mt. of Olives--Matthew 24:27-31; Isaiah 63:1-6; Habakkuk 3, Deuteronomy 33:2-3 and about 220 other passages all through the Word.    The Feast of Trumpets falls on Tishre 1 each year.  It is over 3 days, by the Roman calendar, over 2 days by the Hebrew calendar.  Therefore, "no man knows the day or the hour” in which the third trumpet (a shofar/ram’s horn) will be blown.  Three trumpets are blown, and everyone waits for the "last trump” to be blown, which signals the opening of the gates of heaven, and the descent of Messiah to gather those in who are righteous.  This is Messianic hope among the Jews, and the believers in Messiah. Messiah cannot come at any time—this is man’s thinking.  He can only come to fulfill this Festival on the 1st or 2nd of Tishre.  Of course, there are always 2 days upon the earth at one time.   
Then the Word tells us that 3 ½ years, on the Enoch  Calendar of 360 days a year, He will come.  He does not want the children of light to be in the dark.  He does not come as a "thief in the night” to those watching, praying, and hearing the Ruach Yahuwah.  That is clear from I Thessalonians 5:1-10.  Therefore, the children of light know the seasons by the Festivals.   Here are some of the 220 Scripture passages regarding His second coming:  I Thessalonians 4:13-18; I Corinthians 15:51-58; Revelation 11:15-17; Philippians  3:20-21; Revelation 19:11-16; Zechariah 14:1-5; and Jude 14-15.  He comes at the "last trump”—the 7th trumpet of the tribulation.  This is clear from both I Corinthians 15:52 and Revelation 11:15-19.  It is quite plain from the Scriptures that Yahushua comes with the wrath of the Father, which is so severe that no one can withstand it without His protection.  So, the Feast of Trumpets is the celebration of our gathering together unto Him, but also of judgment on the wicked.  It is a day of separation and justice. 
 
THE DAY OF ATONEMENT – YOM KIPPUR  
Ten days after the Feast of Trumpets, Yom Teruah, begins the Feast of national Atonement.  This  pictures the first action of Messiah after His marriage and the wedding Feast.  There are seven days between Yom Teruah, the "last trump”, and the beginning of the Day of Atonement.  During these 7 days, Messiah will marry His  Bride, and they will be in the wedding chamber.  At the end of the 7 days, the couple will come out of the marriage chamber, and there will be a Feast with  the wedding guests and attendants.  (So beautifully has Messiah and will Messiah fulfill all the requirements of the ancient wedding Feast.  Please ask for my article, The Ancient Jewish Wedding Ceremony, which includes the terms of the wedding covenant, sealed in His own blood, in terms that make it understandable in modern terminology--It clears up a lot of questions). After the wedding Feast, Messiah and His wife will go to Jerusalem, and He will call all nations to the Valley of Jehoshaphat for judgment as to how they treated the people of Israel.  The Valley of Jehoshaphat is directly in front of the Eastern Gate—in the north Kidron Valley.  Here is where the goods Kings of Judah, cleansed the Temple, after evil Kings had defiled it, by burning idols and evil priests.  Here, Messiah will sit and divide out who will be judged and who will not.  (Joel 2 and 3 and Matthew 25:31-46) The other aspect of the Day of Atonement fulfilled by Messiah, is that on this day, "all Israel will be saved”—national redemption.  It is the day that He announces to all those faithful Israelites, of all ages, that they are justified in Yahuwah’s sight because of His Atonement.  On this day, Yahushua, the High Priest, enters into the courts of Yahuwah, and sprinkles His own blood on the mercy seat, and atones for the whole House of Jacob.  (Romans 11:26; Ezekiel  36:22-38; Jeremiah 31:31-34: Jeremiah 50:20 and hundreds of other verses throughout the Word).  This is the day of the mighty restoration of the two Houses in their completeness, as per Ezekiel 37:15-28, in which He restores them into one Kingdom again.   

 THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES
On this day, 5 days after the Day of Atonement, Yahuwah proceeds to tabernacle with man for 1,000 years.  It pictures Elohim living with His  creation.  (Revelation 20:11-chapter 22)   This Festival will demand required attendance each year, or there will be penalties – Zechariah 14:16-19.   This is the time that Messiah was born.  He came to "tabernacle among us” – John 1:14.  It is the time of the restoration of all things.  Acts 3:19-20 In John 7:37-39, we read: "On the last day, the great day of the Feast”, during the celebration of the water pouring, Yahushua stood up and declared "If any man thirst, let him come to Me and drink.  He that believes on Me, as the Scriptures has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spoke He of the Spirit, which they that believe on Him should receive…)”   The Bride of Messiah will rule and reign with her Bridegroom, not only for this 1,000 years, but in the New Jerusalem, forever.  (Revelation 19-22) There are many passages in the Word, which describe the peace and prosperity of this time.  But, since all modern technology will be destroyed, we will go back to an agricultural society.  Man will work 6 days, and on Shabbat, he will  rest.  He will attend the seven Festivals in Jerusalem, and keep the Torah.  Yahushua, and those who rule with Him, will enforce the Torah "with a rod of iron”.  It is wise now, to enter the covenant relationship with Yahuwah through Messiah, and guard His Torah, for He comes with a "fiery Torah” to the earth, and those who are obedient to Him, will have great privileges.  This Feast also pictures the coming of the Father to the earth, at the end of the 1,000 years.  He will come to raise up the wicked, and judge them, sending them justly to the lake of fire.  He will create a new heaven and a new earth, and bring His City—the New Jerusalem—down over the earth, where He will reign from forever.   
 
The Festivals of Hanukkah and Purim

The Festival of Hanukkah usually falls in December.  John 10:22 shows that Yahushua went up to the Temple during this Festival, also called the Festival or Feast of Dedication.  It is a celebration of a historical victory by the Jewish people around 167BCE, without which we would not have the Hebrew Scriptures.  Greece wanted to destroy anything of Hebrew culture.  The Jews fought back, and won.  This festival also will have its fulfillment in those who stand against the anti-messiah during the Tribulation, in his attempts to destroy anything to do with Yahuwah and His Torah off the earth.   The Feast of Purim is from the book of Esther.  It also shows the victory of the Jews over a leader who wanted to destroy them.  It, also, will be fulfilled during the tribulation, as the world ruler will try to destroy all Torah-observant Jews and Messianic Torah-observant believers out of the world.   The Word does not require us to celebrate these two festivals, but in remembering them, as Yahushua did, we are learning to look to His victory in 
the days of severe testing.  These festivals are the heritage of those who belong to Yahuwah, along with the weekly Shabbat.  These are signs of who belongs to the Messiah of Israel, and who does not.   His calendar is not laborious and heavy.  It is light and joyful, and through obedience to His Festivals, Shabbats, and laws for our good, we maintain a healthy, balanced life, in mind, emotions, spirit and body.   Shalom and blessings to you, Yedidah.
