THE SEVEN FESTIVAL SABBATHS

MESSIANIC SHADOWS

YAHUAH’S REDEMPTION PLAN FOR HIS WIFE, YISRAEL Moed’im for 5772AM / 2012AD/CE - Shadows of things to come
Moed’im: This Hebrew word means “appointed times”. Many of them are “festivals” or feasts, and commemorate or “shadow” how Mashiach Yahusha redeems His wife, Israel. THE SHADOWS PICTURE REDEMPTION. They are given at Lev. 23, and again at Dt. 16.
MANY BEGIN THE MOON AT THE SIGHTING OF THE CRESCENT, HOWEVER THIS IS AN ISLAMIC PRACTICE. THE TRUE RENEWED MOON IS DARK AND CANNOT BE SEEN IN THE BRILLIANCE OF THE SUN. THE FIRST DAY “BUILDS” FROM THE ZERO-POINT, WHEN THE MOON IS CENTERED BETWEEN THE EARTH & SUN. IF YOU DON’T BEGIN AT “ZERO”, THE MOON WILL BE WANING ON YOUR COUNT TO THE FEASTS, WHICH OCCUR ON THE 15TH DAY OF THE 1ST AND 7TH MOONS.

ENGRAFT INTO YISRAEL BY FOLLOWING THE “WAY” OF THE REDEEMER, YAHUSHA HA’MASHIACH.
THE HEBREW CALENDAR SHADOWS HIS REDEMPTION PLAN “COME” . . . REV. 22:17

Shabuoth (Hebrew, “weeks”) 50th day

(REST DAY)

Sunset May 26 to sunset May 27, 2012 Calculated from the weekly Sabbath during Matsah, counting 7 Sabbaths to the morrow after the 7th Sabbath, being the 50th day.
THE YAHUDIM ALWAYS CALCULATE FROM ABIB 16 IN THEIR COUNT TO SHABUOTH, YET WE KNOW YAHUSHA WAS IN THE TOMB ON ABIB 16, AND WAS NOT YET RESURRECTED AS FIRST-FRUITS (WAVE SHEAF). THIS YEAR IT WORKS OUT.

"Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a festival, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days which are a shadow of things to come for the body of Mashiach." Col 2:16-17

Shabuoth commemorates the giving of Torah at Sinai, the wedding anniversary of Yahuah and Israel. Torah means “instructions”. The “Covenant” is a marriage. TRADITIONALLY CALLED
“PENTECOST”, GREEK FOR “COUNT 50”. FULFILLED AS RECORDED AT ACTS 2, WHEN TORAH WAS WRITTEN ON HEARTS OF NATSARIM, RENEWING THE COVENANT, RESTORING ISRAEL TO YAHUAH THROUGH INDWELLING OF YAHUSHA’S SPIRIT. IT IS NOT A “BIRTHDAY”, IT IS A WEDDING ANNIVERSARY.

2012 APPOINTED TIMES: ABIB (ripe grain harvest) 1st moon of year Sunset Mar 23 through sunset Mar 24 This is not a day of rest, but only the 1st day of the 1st moon, in SPRING of the new year. it’s past the equinox, and not in winter.

Yom Teruah (REST DAY) 1st day of 7th moon:
Sunset Sept. 16 through sunset Sept 17
YOM TERUAH (DAY OF SHOUT) - WE HEAR A SHOFAR BLOWN, REMINDING US OF THE COMING DAY OF THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD WHEN THE VOICE OF A GREAT MESSENGER WILL “SHOUT” LIKE A TRUMPET—THE “LAST TRUMP” STILL UNFULLFILLED, A FORE-SHADOW OF THINGS TO COME.

Yom Kaphar (REST DAY) 10th day of 7th moon:
Sunset Sept. 25 through sunset Sept 26
YOM KAPHAR, DAY OF COVERING; REMINDS US OF SCROLL OF LIFE, AND THE REDEMPTION OF THE LIVING FOLLOWING THE RAISING OF THE DEAD. THE FIRST -FRUITS GROUP WHO ARE ALIVE WILL BE CHANGED IN THE WINK OF AN EYE, CLOTHED WITH IMMORTALITY.

PESACH - Memorial of Yahusha’s death
(Passover Lamb) 14th day at evening of 1st moon: Sunset Apr 5. APR 6 IS A PREPARATION DAY FOR
THE ANNUAL SABBATH (ON THE 15TH DAY) OF THE FIRST MOON.

Yahusha was impaled during the “day” part of the 14th of the first moon, but He observed this Memorial with His talmidim the evening before, at the arrival of the 14th.

Sukkoth (REST DAY) 15th day of 7th moon:
Sunset Sept 30 through sunset Oct 1
TENTS OR BOOTHS - REMINDS US OF ISRAEL LIVING IN TENTS 40 YEARS, BUT LOOKS FORWARD (SHADOW OF) THE WEDDING FEAST, AND RETURN OF YAHUSHA HA’MASHIACH ON THE DAY OF YAHUAH, FOLLOWING THE GREAT TRIBULATION AND JUDGMENT OF THE UNRIGHTEOUS.

Matsah Unleavened Bread

(REST DAY ON 1ST & 7TH DAY) THIS SHADOW-PICTURE DEPICTS CLEANING OUT THE “LEAVEN” FROM OUR HEARTS, PREPARING US TO RECEIVE THE “GOOD SEED” OF TORAH, 50 DAYS LATER AT SHABUOTH. COMMEMORATES ISRAEL BEING DELIVERED FROM EGYPTIAN SLAVERY AFTER JUDGMENT OF ALL FIRST-BORN MALES IN LAND.

Sukkoth Closing day of festival (REST DAY)

Chanukah: A 8-day national (secular) commemoration of deliverance from the Greek ruler Antiochus Epiphanes in 168 BCE, mentioned at “John” 10:22. The Roman dates for Chanukah will be: sunset Dec 8 through sunset Dec 16, 2012

15th day of 1st moon (full moon) Sunset Apr 6 through sunset Apr 7 For 7 days, all Israel is to abstain from leavened bread. This applies to all believers.
The Wave-sheaf (omer, bundle) offering is traditionally thought of as being Abib 16, however Yahusha IS the omer, and ascended to perform this on the morrow after the weekly Sabbath. The count to Shabuoth (7 x 7 complete weeks) is determined by getting this correct. This offering, called the first-fruits, was fulfilled by Yahusha when He resurrected. During the festival of Matsah (Unleavened Bread), the High Priest would “wave” the first-fruits of the barley harvest on the “morrow after the Sabbath”. Yahusha became the “wave-sheaf” offering because the resurrection was the object, and the wave sheaf was the “shadow.”
