Introduction
One would think that "Keeping the Sabbaths Holy" would be an easy observation, but I can tell you, and I will tell you, that it is not. Together, you and I, are going to share in why the Sabbaths are so loved by those who truly love The Eternal Creator, and why the Sabbaths are so despised by those that don't. Additionally, the Sabbaths can not be compromised in as much as no one or no church is or was allowed or given authority by The Eternal YHVH to change His Holy Sabbaths and still be accounted as an "Obedient Child or Bride;" this includes YHVH's appointed Firstborn human Son, Messiah Y'Shua.

Daniel 7:25
And [The Universal Roman Beast] shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times (Sabbath Days) and laws (Commandments, Traditions, Ordinances): and they shall be given into [The Universal Roman Beast's] hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. See The Last Trumpet.

Hebrews 1:2
[YHVH] Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his [eldest] Son, whom HE hath appointed "Firstborn (heir)" of all things, for whom also HE made the worlds;

Hebrews 3:1
¶ Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the [man who is both our] Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Messiah Y'Shua; 2 Who was faithful to [YHVH] that appointed him [Firstborn or Heir], as also, Moses was faithful in all his house.

Note: "Firstborn" is not a statement of having been sexually
fathered, but is a statement or appointed position of INHERITANCE. Messiah was not physically fathered by YHVH or a Holy Ghost. Messiah was Spiritually (mentally) Fathered by YHVH as a "Righteous (mental) Image." Wherefore we, also, call YHVH "Abba" or "FATHER." Messiah was physically fathered by Joseph. This is just one more example of the things that were unrighteously altered by the Universal Roman Beast church. This study will be broken down into "Keeping the Seventh Day (weekly) Sabbath Holy", and "Keeping the Annual Sabbaths Holy." Since legalism is not our goal, we will share in the basic concept of why The Eternal chose the methodology and the symbolic importance of "Keeping The Eternal's Sabbaths Holy." Please try to remember that The Eternal uses anthropomorphisms (allegories or parallel physical examples of Spiritual Truth) as His method of reaching out to mankind. There are varying methods and degrees of this symbolism: The first an easiest to understand are called parables. The second and more difficult to understand are called prophecies. The third and less obvious are revealed through Names with special meaning, Holy Days, Holy Traditions, Statutes, Ordinances, and Laws (of Love),. The fourth and invisible to the eyes of common man are the

Physical to Spiritual Parallels of YHVH's Creation (The Eternal's handiwork). Darwinism is a prime example of mankind's inability to see YHVH in His creation(s). Read: "Parables and Parallels"

Romans 1:20
20 For the invisible things of Him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even His everlasting power and divinity; that they may be without excuse.

And so .......

The Seventh Day Sabbath
(Shabbat) First of all, when does The Sabbath Day or any day begin and end? All days whether a Sabbath or not begin and end after sunset (dusk), and not at midnight or dawn (daybreak). In Genesis chapter one, Scripture was very carefully worded to state that a (complete) day was firstly composed of the dark (evening) and then secondly (followed by) composed of daylight (morning).

Genesis 1:5, 8, 13, 19, 23, 31
. . . . and the evening (H6153, ereb, dusk) and the morning were the __#__ day.

Later in Exodus and Leviticus, we are specifically told that a Sabbath (which

may occur on any complete day of the week) begins and ends at "Even" (EVENING, which is dusk, when the day and the night are equal in magnitude or even). The verses below clearly indicate that all Day, Feast, and Sabbath

periods of time begin and end at even(ing) (H6153, ereb, dusk). Moreover the symbolism is clear for it is not just days that begin in darkness, but all periods of time (months, our lives, millenniums, the beginning of mankind). Why? So that we may realize that darkness (unrighteousness of man) will always give way to LIGHT (The Righteousness of YHVH).

Leviticus 23:32
It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even(ing) (H6153, ereb, dusk), from even(ing) (H6153, ereb, dusk) unto even(ing) (H6153, ereb, dusk), shall ye celebrate your Sabbath.

Exodus 12:18
In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even(ing) (H6153, ereb, dusk), ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even(ing) (H6153, ereb, dusk).

Proverbs 7:8-9
8 Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house, 9 In the twilight, in the evening (H6153, ereb, dusk), in the black and dark night:

1 Corinthians 13:12
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then (following now) face to face (in Spiritual Light): now I know in part; but then (following now) shall I know even as also I am known (fully in the Light of The Eternal will all things be made manifest/known). So now that we can see The Eternal's deliberate symbolism of dark before light, it is time to move on to the next level of understanding the Sabbath(s)

of The Eternal Self-existent Creator of the universe. Ramses, A Pharaoh of Egypt (a physical to Spiritual type of Satan), said:

Exodus 5:5
"Behold, the people of the land are now many, and you make them rest from their burdens."

Here we can plainly see, as did Pharaoh, that we are to rest (Strong's #H7673 shabath, "to repose," "desist from exertion," "to suffer to be lacking," "to put away" or "to endure the condition of being without.") on the Sabbath Day. The

Sabbath Day is a Holy Day, and therefore, requires that the sin of "Selfcenteredness" be put away and obedience to a "G-d centered" life be emphasized.

Exodus 20:8-11
8 "Remember (don't ever forget) the Sabbath day, to keep it Holy. 9 You shall labor six days, and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day (Friday at sunset to Saturday at sunset) is a Sabbath to YHVH your G-d. You shall not do any work in it, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your man-servant, nor your maidservant, nor your cattle (or any beast of burden. Exodus 23:12 ; Deuteronomy 5:12-14), nor your stranger who is within your gates
('within your gates' implies "any who directly receives of your bounty while under your area of authority.");

11 for in six days YHVH made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day; therefore YHVH blessed the Sabbath day, and made it Holy.

Again, The Sabbath Day is a Holy Day and those who are in authority must not only "Keep it Holy," but must insist that it be kept Holy by those (who by

choice or otherwise) remain within or have contact with their areas of responsibility (Relatives/Visitors/Employees). Those areas (permanent or temporary) of responsibility are any personally owned, rented, leased or

borrowed property of any kind wherein another may reside, make use of, benefit from or provide a service. This includes, but is not limited to: postal employees, garbage or trash collectors, gas station attendants, hotel/motel maid service, restaurant employees, grocery store personnel, relatives, neighbors, and strangers. In other words, no one is to be working in order to provide a "Sabbath Keeper" (or those under a "Sabbath Keeper's" care) a service, except as a free act of love that is absolutely necessary in order to preserve physical/Spiritual life or prevent physical/Spiritual suffering. Exceptions would be any person or animal that provides a necessary service, such as, emergency medical or necessary medical technicians, doctors, and nurses; "Seeing Eye" dogs; some, but not all policemen; Ministers of YHVH while performing Holy convocations. However, these services should be voluntarily provided without charge, and out of the goodness of their hearts. Otherwise, they don't meet the Spiritual requirement that is imposed by "Love," which is G-d centered or Love Centered and not Self-centered. Additionally, is there anything that we can do to prevent postal employees from serving us on the Sabbath? Well, maybe. We can send our bill payments, cards, letters, packages out on Sunday nights or Monday mornings (no later than Tuesday evening for local type mail) and normally the mail will be delivered to its destination before the end of the week. However, the one thing we cannot do is protect people from themselves. But IF there were enough of us NOT working or using services on a Sabbath, then our combined witness would become impossible to ignore. You might, also, find a garbage pickup service that will schedule your garbage pickup for another day.

Mark 1:21
21 They went into Capernaum, and immediately on the Sabbath day he entered into the synagogue and taught (not for money, but because of their love for YHVH and mankind).

Isaiah 58:5-14 (true Affliction, true ministry, true sacrifice)
5 Is this the fast that I have chosen? A day for a man to afflict his soul? Is it (true affliction) to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? Will you call this a fast, and an acceptable day to YHVH?

Note: YHVH does not prefer a physical Fast or Affliction, but a Spiritual one. YHVH just uses physical examples to teach Spiritual Truth. However, if we do afflict our soul (living bodies) by means of physical affliction or fasting, then it must be to teach Spiritual Truth OR as a result of Spiritual affliction. This is emphasized by the next verses.

6 Is not this the fast (deny self) that I have chosen? to loose (remove) the bands of wickedness (sin), to undo the heavy burdens (oppression of sin), and to let the oppressed (victims of sin) go free, and that you break (eliminate) every yoke (bondage of sin)? 7 Is it not to deal (selflessly give) your bread to the hungry, and that you bring the poor that are cast out to your house? when you see the naked, that you cover him; and that you hide not yourself from your own flesh (literally give the shirt off your own back)? 8 Then shall your light (when you can perform these acts of Righteous Love) break forth as the morning, and your health shall spring forth speedily: and your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of YHVH shall be your reward. 9 Then shall you call, and YHVH shall answer; you shall cry, and He shall say, I am here. If you take away from the midst of yourself the yoke (of selfish sin), the putting forth of the finger (as an accuser), and speaking vanity (self-centerness); 10 And if you draw out your soul (living sacrifice or personal loss) to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul (at your own expense); then shall your light (Righteous Example) rise out of obscurity, and your darkness become as the noonday:

11 And YHVH shall guide you continually (with His Holy Spirit or pneuma), and satisfy your soul in drought, and make fat your bones: and you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. 12 And they that shall be of you (follow you) shall build the old waste places: You shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called, "The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in." 13 If you turn away your foot during the sabbath from doing your (own) pleasure on my Holy Day; and call the Sabbath a delight, the Holy of YHVH, honorable; and shall honor Him, not doing your own ways (self-seeking), nor finding your own pleasure (self-seeking), nor speaking your own words (self-absorbed): 14 Then shall you delight yourself in YHVH; and I will cause you all to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed you all with the heritage of Jacob (Israel or seed of Abraham) your father: for the mouth of YHVH has spoken it (a done deal).

Exodus 31:12-17 (This refers to both physical and Spiritual Israel)
12 YHVH spoke to Moses, saying, 13 "Speak also to the children of Israel (physical and Spiritual seed of Abraham), saying, 'Most assuredly you shall keep my Sabbaths: for it is a sign (of True Faith) (Shema) between Me and you throughout your generations; that you may know that I am YHVH who sanctifies you. 14 You shall keep the Sabbath (not do away with, substitute or forget) therefore; for it is Holy to you. Everyone (without exception) who profanes it shall surely be put to death (will not receive eternal life and will die the second death); for whoever does any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his (her) people (The Children of Gd). 15 Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day is a

Sabbath of solemn rest, Holy to YHVH. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day shall surely be put to death . 16 Therefore the children of Israel (physical and Spiritual seed of Abraham) shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations (forever), for a perpetual covenant (an eternal marriage between YHVH and His Spirit Filled Children). 17 It is a sign (Shema), between me and the children of Israel (YHVH's Children) forever; for in six days YHVH made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.'"

Exodus 35:2-3 (This basically refers to cooking or burning)
2 'Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be a Holy Day for you, a Sabbath of solemn rest to YHVH: whoever does any work in it shall be put to death (will not receive eternal life and will die the second death). 3 You shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations on the (weekly) Sabbath day.'"

Here we can see that the use of fire is prohibited. Now we can either be satisfied with this in a literal sense, and thus, not kindle a fire or we can seek a greater understanding. However, what is missing here is a reason we should not kindle a fire. So what are the reasons that one might kindle a fire? Well, I can think of seven: 1. To cook uncooked food (work) or reheat food (not work). 2. To keep warm. (preserve life) 3. For a burnt offering (ritual of Fire). 4. To forge metal. (work) 5. Various other forms of manufacturing. (work) 6. As a weapon (various methods) to destroy, eliminate or defend (to preserve life and/or to take life). 7. For light (various types). So how many of these involve work for physical gain? Answer: Cooking food, forging metal, as an offensive weapon, and manufacturing. These things must be accomplished in six days, but not on a Sabbath Day. So how about keeping warm OR as a defensive weapon OR for light? These things must be discerned with the understanding of whether or not it is lawful and

it is an act of love to do good on the Sabbath. We should however cook our meals in advance (Friday is a Preparation Day). Even though we in general do not use fire anymore to cook, to make burnt offerings, to provide light, and in some cases provide warmth; we still need to understand that the intent of the Sabbath is to take our inward thoughts from ourselves and redirect them outwardly (first) towards YHVH and (secondly) to our neighbors. So kindle a fire only when absolutely necessary to preserve physical life, which is basically to provide warmth in cold climates, etc... . Having said that, I must admonish those who place themselves unnecessarily in a position of breaking the Sabbath, as a result of seeking personal goals. YHVH expects us to behave in a responsible manner, and in doing so, to take care of personal business and make preparations in advance. Furthermore, He doesn't want us taking unnecessary chances that might lead us into a situation where we may break YHVH's Holy Sabbath. Keeping The Sabbath Holy actually requires us to plan and think (to act responsibly), which is something we won't do if we don't Love The Eternal more than we Love ourselves.

Matthew 12:12
12 How much, then, is a man (Messiah Y'Shua) of more value than a sheep (as a sacrifice)! Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath day."

Matthew 22:36-40
36 "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?" 37 Y'Shua said to him, "'You shall love the Lord your G-d with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.' 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 A second likewise is this, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' 40 The whole law and the prophets depend on (are not done away with, but are built on) these two commandments."

Annual High Sabbaths and the use of Fire
For everything there is a season and a purpose unto heaven, and it appears that fire is prescribed for some of The Annual Sabbaths, but not necessarily for use on The Annual Sabbaths. This will be discussed in greater detail in later chapters. The following will give you insight as to why YHVH chose FIRE as part of the ritual of His Annual Sabbaths. Remember YHVH chose the physical as an example of Spritual Truth. The Annual High Sabbaths teach YHVH's "Plan of Salvation."

Luke 3:16
16 John answered them all, "I indeed baptize you with water, but he (Messiah) comes who is mightier than I, the latchet of whose sandals I am not worthy to loosen. He will baptize (Spiritually Emmerse) you in the Holy Spirit and fire,

1 Corinthians 3:11-17
11 For no one can lay any other foundation than that which has been laid, which is Messiah Y'Shua. 12 But if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay, or stubble; 13 each man's work will be revealed. For the Day will declare it, because it is revealed in fire; and the fire itself will test what sort of work each man's work is. 14 If any man's work remains which he built on it, he will receive a reward. 15 If any man's work is burned, he will suffer loss, but he himself will be saved, but as through fire. 16 Don't you know that you are a temple of The Eternal, and that The Eternal's Spirit (Righteous mentality) lives in you? 17 If anyone destroys the temple of YHVH, YHVH will destroy him; for YHVH's temple is Holy, which you are.

Malachi 3:1-3
Behold, I send my messenger (Aggelos in Greek, and Malak in Hebrew;
Strongs #H4397; a messenger, deputy, angel, teacher, priest, ambassador, king), and he (Messiah Y'Shua) will prepare the way before me; and the

Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to his temple; and the messenger of the covenant (marriage supper / vow), whom you desire, behold, he comes!" says YHVH of hosts. 2 "But who can endure the day of his coming? And who will stand when he appears? For he is like a refiner's fire, and like launderer's soap; 3 and he will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi (the chosen are priests or ministers; Exodus 19:5-6, Revelation 5:9-10), and refine them as gold and silver; and they shall offer to YHVH offerings in righteousness.

Supporting Verses for Keeping The Weekly Sabbath Holy Exodus 16:22-30
22 It happened that on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for each one, and all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses. 23 He said to them, "This is that which YHVH has spoken, 'Tomorrow is a solemn rest, a Holy Sabbath to YHVH. Bake (cook with fire) that which you want to bake, and boil (with fire) that which you want to boil; and all that remains over lay up for yourselves to be kept until the morning." 24 They laid it up until the morning, as Moses asked, and it didn't become foul, neither was there any worm in it. 25 Moses said, "Eat that (leftovers or previously prepared food) today, for today is a Sabbath to YHVH. Today you shall not find it in the

field. 26 Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day is the Sabbath. In it there shall be none." 27 It happened on the seventh day, that some of the people went out to gather (or go shopping in modern terms), and they found none. 28 YHVH said to Moses, "How long do you refuse to keep my commandments and my laws? 29 Behold, because YHVH has given you the Sabbath, therefore he gives you on the sixth day the bread of two days. Everyone stay in his place. Let no one go out of his place on the seventh day (for personal gain)." 30 So

the people rested on the seventh day.

Isaiah 1:Read All (especially verse 13) The Sabbath is not dead,
but does not provide favor (grace) when followed by idolators.

Ezekiel 20:10-13 (Read All)
10 So I caused them to go forth out of the land of Egypt (Symbolic of Sin), and brought them into the wilderness (to Spiritually search for their Creator). 11 I gave them My statutes, and shown them My ordinances, which if a man do, he shall live (eternally) in them. 12 Moreover, also, I (YHVH) gave them My Sabbaths, to be a sign (Shema) between me and them, that they might know that I am YHVH who sanctifies them. 13 But the house of Israel rebelled against me in the wilderness: they didn't walk in my statutes, and they rejected my ordinances, which if a man keep, he shall live in them; and my Sabbaths they greatly profaned. Then I (YHVH) said, I would pour out my

wrath on them in the wilderness, to consume them.

The physical children of Israel (physical seed of Abraham) suffered and still suffer many things because of their lack of obedience and love for their Creator, YHVH. Do not be deceived, the physical children of Israel had a purpose, and that purpose was to serve as a Physical to Spiritual Parallel or example in the form of a WARNING for YHVH's Spiritual Children. If you are to be one of YHVH's Spiritual Children and receive eternal life, then you had better be YHVH Centered and not self-centered. You will not find Grace (favor) in YHVH's eyes if you do not love him enough to lose or deny your self-centered life and gain your obedient G-d Centered way of life.

Matthew 16:24-27
24 Then Y'Shua said to his disciples, "If any man desires to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross (figure of speech for self sacrifice), and follow me (imitate me or believe as I believe and do as I do). 25 For whoever desires to save his (self-centered) life will lose it, and whoever will lose his (self-centered) life for my sake will find it (eternal life). 26 For what will it profit a man, if he will gain the whole (physical) world, and forfeit his (eternal) life? Or what will a man give in exchange for his life? 27 For the Son of Man (Y'Shua) will come (return to the Earth) in the glory of his Father (Glorified by YHVH) with His (YHVH's) angels, and then will he (by YHVH's Authority) render to every man according to his deeds.

Keeping The Sabbaths Holy
The Seven Annual Sabbaths
and Which Observance Method Should The Eternal's "Chosen Few" Follow?
by D. J. Love, Minister, TSN Updated 7-20-2004 Refined 4-7-2007

If you thought that The Eternal only had weekly Sabbath Days then you are mistaken. There are SEVEN Annual Holy Sabbath Days that occur once every year in addition to the weekly Seventh Day Sabbaths. These SEVEN days are the (1) first day and the (2) last day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the (3) day of Pentecost (Shavuot) which coincides with the beginning of The Feast of Weeks, the (4) Day of Trumpets (Yom Teruah), the (5) Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), the first (6) day of the Feast of Tabernacles (Succoth or Sukkat), and the (7) Last Great Day (also, Succoth). These Holy Days are spoken of in Leviticus chapter 23; Three of these annual Sabbaths are Feasts periods. Two of the Feast periods have been positively identified in Scripture as being seven day long periods (a week); The Feast of Weeks (aka Feast of First Fruits) is most probably, also, exactly seven days long (explained later). Feasts are "Appointed Times," but are not necessarily Holy Convocations (Sabbath Assemblies). However, four of the Seven Annual Sabbath Days (Holy Convocations) do fall within a feast period, and "The Last Great Day" immediately follows a seven day feast period. Only two Annual High Holy Sabbaths positively do not fall within a feast period (Yom Teruah and Yom Kippur). These are not Jewish laws, but The Eternal's Laws. Read Genesis 1:14, Psalm 81:3-5, Psalm 104:19, Leviticus 23:4, Exodus 12:2, 13:4, and Isaiah 66:23.

The Beginning of Months, and

The Sacred Calendar
In order to properly observe The Seven Annual Sabbaths (Holy Days), one must know when the beginning of The Eternal's Sacred Year and Calendar occurs. If you think that Satan (Human Nature) has completely missed the opportunity to confuse this important event, then you would be wrong. However, I am a firm believer that it is the Intent of ones Heart (Hebrews 4:12) that The Eternal judges concerning our attempts to obey these issues, and whenever ambiguity or chaos has caused confusion over an issue, then we are obligated to follow, as best as we can, until such a time as we receive a greater measure of understanding. The Annual Sabbaths (Holy days) were commanded as "Statutes Forever" (Leviticus 23:21,31,41). These Sabbaths have not been "Nailed to The Cross" anymore than forever has already occurred. The "Beginning of Months" (Abib 1st or Nisan 1st) is always the first new (dark) moon near the beginning of Spring. So The "Beginning of Months" always falls in Spring (symbolic of the beginning of new life), and by divine establishment (not Commandment) it almost always falls after the vernal (Spring) Equinox; which is approximately March 20th-21st every year. However, this needs to be verified by the length of visible day and visible night for the calendar days in Jerusalem that surround the time of "The Vernal Equinox". The year 2007 is (was or will be) just such a situation. In this particular year the visible daylight and darkness are equal at least four days prior to the equinox in Jerusalem; while the "New Moon" occurres a couple of days prior to the calculated Vernal Equinox, but after the equal daylight and darkness. Therefore, we go with the symbolism of "Light and Dark". Why? Because the symbolism of "Light and Dark" (Good and Evil) is what the Holy Days are all about in the first place.

Note: The word "Abib" (Strong's H24) does not mean young
tender GREEN ears of grain or barley corn, as many believe, but rather incorporates this concept.

Even so, it is still the "New Moon" that determines "The Beginning of
Months."

Note: It should be noted that if "The Beginning Of Months"
were to be put off until the next new moon then that would force Sukkat (Succoth) to occur in late October, and that just never happens.

Note: The first time that the thin waxing (increasing light)
crescent Moon is visible after a New Moon (low in the evening sky just after sunset) marks "The Beginning of Month" in "The Islamic Calendar". Obviously, this would not be visible during bad weather or heavy overcast skys. The New Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon are quite close together in the sky; The Full Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon are at nearly opposite positions in the sky, which is why a Full Moon rises about the time of sunset, and sets about the time of sunrise, for most places on Earth. Some believe that the Jews (Levitical Priesthood) first determined "The Beginning of Months" solely by observation of the first crescent of a new moon. However, observation of crescent moons alone cannot be the basis for Yahweh's Sacred Calendar, because Yahweh's Holy Days are divine appointments or times which Yahweh, not man, has established.

Romans 3:1-4
Then what advantage does the Jew have? Or what is the profit of circumcision? 2 Much in every way! Because first of all, they (The Jews) were entrusted with the oracles of Yahweh. 3 For what if some were without faith? Will their lack of faith make of no effect the faithfulness of Yahweh? 4 Certainly not! . . . .

Oracles; (Strong's # 3051); those laws, and ordinances
(etc...) that are contained in the Tanakh, which include

The Annual Sabbaths.

So what does this mean? It means that when (so called) true worshippers get so involved with the legality (hair splitting) of determining the Holy Day(s), interpretating Commandments, (etc. .), that they lose sight of the symbolic (allegorical or Spiritual) purpose, then they no longer have the Spirit that pleases Yahweh. This in no way nullifies or voids the "Intent" of Yahweh's Laws, ordinances, (etc. .), because it is the protected tangible (physical) symbols that serve Yahweh Spiritual purpose (as allegories OR physical to Spiritual parallels). This does not mean that we must trust the Jewish interpretation of Scripture; it means that it was their job to physically protect (hide or secure) the inspired words of Yahweh for the purpose of maintaining their value as symbols (parables, allegories, examples, ensamples, and shadows of things to come).

Note: The Sabbatarian Network no longer endorses the
"Hebrew Calculated Calendar", as we believe that Yahweh deliberately chose "New Moons" and "Full Moons" for their (Light vs Darkness) symbolic value, and we believe that altering Yahweh's calendar destroys the Spiritual symbolism and the intent for using dark "New Moons" (unrighteousness or sin) and bright "Full Moons" (righteousness) in the first place. Whenever, mankind alters anything established by Yahweh for his own convenience, then mankind has selfishly placed himself before and above The Eternal.

However, for those of you who are interested in knowing more about the unscriptural "Calculated Calendar," you may find these Calculated Calendar Rules very informative. Please make yourself aware, if you are not already aware, that all of The Eternal's "Annual Sabbaths" are designed by Him to teach those of us with "Ears to Hear" and "Eyes to See" about the True "Plan of Salvation." All

Annual Sabbaths are physical examples of Spiritual Truths (Anthropomorphisms), and are not to be followed as legalistic rules and regulations, but are to be used as a tool to understand and teach Spiritual Truths.

The Calculated Calendar Rules
Rule One: Spring must have arrived on or before Abib 16. Passover can be no earlier than two days before the spring or vernal
equinox? Because when Passover falls on a Friday and the wavesheaf was cut the following Sunday, Abib 16, that Sunday must occur in spring (after a molad). Otherwise, the harvest would begin in winter. The Feast of Unleavened Bread must always be a spring Feast. Not one of Yahweh's Holy Days falls in the winter, as winter is symbolic of death. Additionally, Pentecost must, also, occur in the spring. Yahweh's Holy Days must continue to be observed "in their season."

Rule Two: In ordering the calendar, the molad of the seventh and
sacred month of Ethanim (Tishri) is of paramount importance. Though

Abib is the beginning of the Sacred New Year, Ethanim (Tishri) is the beginning of the civil year, and is symbolic of the Coming Sacred Sabbath Millennium, but more importantly, it is the Sacred Seventh month, which is symbolic of the First Resurrection, the end of Satan's rule on Earth, and the establishment of Yahweh Kingdom on Earth. Ethanim 1st (Festival of Trumpets) rarely falls on the molad of Ethanim because there are four obstacles, delays, or considerations (dehiyyot) which may cause Ethanim 1st to be postponed one or even two days. Consideration One: The Day of Atonement may never fall on Friday or Sunday, nor may Ethanim (Tishri) 21 (seventh or last day of the Feast of Tabernacles) fall on a weekly Sabbath. If the Day of Atonement were to fall on a Friday, there would be no possibility of preparing food for the weekly Sabbath. One would have to fast for two days instead of one. Likewise, if Atonement fell on Sunday, the cleaning and chores following the Sabbath would have to be postponed until Monday. Additionally, if Ethanim 21 fell on the weekly Sabbath, the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles and the Last Great Day would both fall on Sunday, and the Preparation for these High Days would have to be on the weekly Sabbath, which is not allowed. As a result, Ethanim 1st may never fall on a Sunday, Wednesday or Friday. Consideration Two: States that if the molad is at noon or later, Ethanim 1st is delayed one day, or two days, if this would cause it fall on a prohibited day as in Consideration One. Note: the 24-hour day is figured as beginning at 6:00 P.M. at Jerusalem. Experience has shown that if the molad takes place before noon, then the new moon can be seen by an acute observer the same day near sunset, and that same day became the Ethanim 1st. If the molad occurs after midday, the new moon cannot be seen until the next day, and Ethanim 1st has to be delayed. Consideration Three: If the molad in a common year falls on a Tuesday at 204 parts past 3:00 A.M. (i.e., 3:11 A.M. and 20 seconds), Ethanim 1st is delayed by two days. Since Consideration One forbids it from being postponed to Wednesday, it is now postponed to Thursday. Consideration Four: States that when the molad of Ethanim (Tishri)

immediately following a leap year (not the same as the Gregorian Calendar) occurs on Monday at 15 hours, 589 parts (9:32 A.M. and 431/3 seconds), Ethanim 1st is delayed from Monday to Tuesday. See Encyclopedia Judaica article "Calendar," page 44. Thus, the first day of a month in Yahweh's calendar may coincide with a new moon or it may be one or two days later. Although this may be confusing, we must remember that calculation has precedence over observation, and that the Holy Days must be kept in their proper season.

Rule Three: Passover (Abib 14) can only fall on a Monday,
Wednesday, Friday or the Sabbath Day. There is a constant, fixed number of days between Passover and the Day of Trumpets (163 intervening days). There are no variable months or intercalary months between the first month of the Sacred New Year, and seventh month (the Month that symbolizes The Return of the Messiah to establish Yahweh's Kingdom on Earth). Therefore, since the Day of Trumpets cannot fall on a Sunday, Wednesday or Friday; Passover and all the other Holy Days (except "Pentecost" or "Feast of First Fruits") cannot possibly occur on three unique days of the week. To put it another way, each Holy Day other than Pentecost can occur on only four days of the week. Pentecost itself, always falling on a Sunday.

Leviticus 23:9-16
9 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 10 Speak to the children of Israel, and tell them, When you are come into the land which I give to you, and shall reap the harvest of it, then you shall bring the sheaf of the first-fruits of your harvest to the priest (Presently Yahshua): 11 and he shall wave the sheaf before Yahweh, to be accepted for you: on the next day after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it. 12 In the day when you wave the sheaf, you shall offer a helamb without blemish a year old for a burnt offering to Yahweh. 13 The meal-offering of it shall be two tenth parts of an ephah of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire to Yahweh for a sweet savor; and the drink-offering of it shall be

of wine, the fourth part of a hin. 14 You shall eat neither bread, nor parched grain, nor fresh ears (corn), until this same day, until you have brought the offering of your Yahweh: it is a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. 15 You shall count to you from the next day after the Sabbath (Sunday), from the day that you brought the sheaf of the waveoffering; seven Sabbaths shall there be complete (7 x 7 = 49 complete days): 16 even to the next day (49 + 1 = 50 days) after the seventh Sabbath (49th day) shall you number fifty days (the 50th day); and (then / Sunday) you shall offer a new meal-offering to Yahweh.

Rule Four: The years 3, 6, 8, 11, 14, 17 and 19 of every nineteenyear time cycle are leap years with a thirteenth month.

Keeping The Sabbaths Holy
Part Three How to keep Passover and Unleavened Bread
by D. J. Love, Minister, TSN, SBC Refined 4-7-2004 Refined 4-7-2007

Directly below are the proof verses, at the end of the Proof Verses is the summation, and I think you will be surprised at the conclusion. Additionally, a graphic "Timeline" is available for viewing on the "Sacred Calendar" page. Please make yourself aware, if you are not already aware, that all of The Eternal's "Annual Sabbaths" are designed by Him to teach those

of us with "Ears to Hear" and "Eyes to See" about the True "Plan of Salvation." All Annual Sabbaths are physical examples of Spiritual Truths and are not to be followed as legalistic rules and regulations, but are to be used as a tool to teach Spiritual Truths.

Unleavened Bread and Passover
Using The Physical to Spiritual Parallel Principle

The Physical or Tangible Example Four Days prior to the first Passover event. Note: Exodus teaches us how the
First Passover as an event originally occurred, but it does not necessarily teach us how to observe Passover, as it has been instituted, as a "Remembrance;" Leviticus teaches us how to remember Passover according to Torah (Law).

The Spiritual or Intangible Lesson During the Four Day period prior to the instituted Passover. Luke 22:1-2
Now the feast of unleavened bread drew near, which is called the Passover. 2 The chief priests and the scribes sought how they might put him
(Messiah Yahshua, The Human Passover Lamb) to death, ...

Exodus 12:2-3 (as it originally
occurred)

Matthew 26:2,5
2 "You know that after two days the Passover is coming, and the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified."

2 "This month shall be to you the beginning of months. It shall be the first month of the year to you. 3 Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying, 'On the tenth day of

this month, they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to their fathers' houses, a lamb for a household;

5 But they said, "Not during the Feast, lest a riot occur among the people."

Note: The Instituted "Passover" is
not a scriptural part of The (seven day) Feast of Unleavened Bread, but it But at the place which the Eternal does occur during the preceeding Elohiym (YHWH) shall choose to minutes just prior to sunset and may place his name in(Spiritually speaking even continue into the night hours of this is His Children, but physically The First Day of Unleavened Bread, speaking it was the Temple in Jerusalem), but must be completed prior to dawn. there thou shalt sacrifice the passover at even (evening), at the going down of the sun (prior to SUNSET), at the season that thou camest forth out of Egypt.

Deuteronomy 16:6

Exodus 12:5-6 (as it originally
occurred)

Luke 22:7 (the Preparation Day for
The Passover Meal came) The days (Strong's #G2250, hemera or The Season) of Unleavened Bread (as instituted) came, during which the Passover (Lamb) must be sacrificed.

5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male a year old. You shall take it from the sheep or from the goats: 6 and you shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month; Note: Since Messiah was to be and the whole assembly of the sacrificed on the Instituted congregation of Israel shall kill it in "Preparation Day," (Prior to the Feast the evening(Strong's H6153 - tereb, of UB; See Mark 14:2; Lest there be an pronounced eh'-reb, which is dusk, uproar) he was forced to have a evening, even tide, night. Taken from "Remembrance" meal with his H6150 tarab, aw-rab', the idea of covering disciples near the end of the day on or growing dusky near sundown; toward the 13th of Abib (Nisan); This seasonal evening). meal is known as a "Chagigah" and it was strictly a peace- offering, that Note: Traditionally, Josephus might be twofold. This first records that during the first century

the Passover lambs were slaughtered "from the ninth hour (since dawn) till the eleventh" (Book 6, chapter 9, section 3), which corresponds closely to our 3:00-5:00 pm., which still allowed time for roasting over fire at the TEMPLE in Jerusalem (See Luke 23:44).

Note: The lamb (or goat) was
sacrificed near the end of the 14th day, prior to sunset. However, the first actual day of "Unleavened Bread" (as Instituted) does not occur until after twilight is over and darkness is upon the land at the beginning of the 15th day of Abib. At the beginning of this period of time, "The Chosen" must remove all leavening agents from their property.

Chagigah was traditionally offered on the 14th of Nisan (at the end of the day near a Nisan 13th sunset), the day of the Passover sacrifice (Nisan 14th), and afterwards became part of the Passover Meal. The Mishnah rule is that it was only to be offered if the Passover day fell on a week-day, not on a Shabat, and if the Passover lamb alone would not have been sufficient to give a satisfying supper to the company which gathered around it (Pes. vi. 4). The second Chagigah was offered on the 15th of Nisan (after sunset on Nisan 14th) or the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. It is this second Chagigah which the Jews were afraid they might be unable to eat, if they contracted defilement in the judgment-hall of Pilate (John 18:28).

As in the case of all other peaceofferings, part of this Chagigah 15 Seven days shall you eat might be kept, though not for unleavened bread; even the first day longer than one night and two days you shall put away yeast out of your from its sacrifice. Being a voluntary houses, for whoever eats leavened offering (A voluntary SELF-Sacrifice in bread from the first day until the Messiah's case), it was lawful to bring seventh day, that soul shall be cut off it from sacred things (such as tithes of from Israel. the flock). But the Chagigah for the 15th of Nisan was obligatory.

Exodus 29:2
2 unleavened bread, unleavened cakes mixed with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil: you shall make them of fine wheat flour.

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of YHWH, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto YHWH, which is

Luke 22:11-16 (the day before the
Preparation Day on Abib 13th.)

5 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even (twilight), is Yahweh's Passover. 6 On the fifteenth day of the same month (less than an hour later) is the "Feast of Unleavened Bread" to Yahweh: seven days you shall eat unleavened (wheat) bread.

11 Tell the master of the house, 'The Teacher says to you, "Where is the guest room, where I MAY( or MAY not ) eat the Passover (Chagigah) with my disciples?" 12 He will show you a large, furnished upper room.

6 You shall cut it in pieces (will be broken prior to eating), and pour oil on it. It is a meal-offering. 7 If your offering be a meal-offering of the frying-pan, it shall be made of fine (wheat) flour with oil.

Even so, completeness would merely indicate the end of the FILLING or GROWTH of it, and not the end of its 11 No meal-offering, which you shall observance.

John 19:31-33
31 Therefore the Jews, because it was the (Instituted) Preparation (Day), so that the bodies wouldn't remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a special (HIGH) one), asked of Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. 32 Therefore the soldiers came, and broke the legs of the first, and of the other who was crucified with him; 33 but when they came to Yahshua, and saw that he was already dead (or they thought he was dead; either way), they didn't break his legs.

blood, and still not died? Was physical death a requirement of Messiah's sacrifice OR was it death unto SELF that was the requirement? Did Jonah die in the belly of the "Great Fish" or was he merely

10 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, If any man of you or of your generations shall be unclean by reason of a dead body, or be on a journey afar off, yet he shall keep the Passover to Yahweh. 11 In the second month on the fourteenth day at even (twilight) they shall keep it; they shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs: 12 they shall leave none of it to the morning, nor break a bone of it: according to all the statute of the Passover they shall keep it. 13 But the man who is clean, and is not on a journey, and forbears to keep the Passover, that soul shall be cut off from his people; because he didn't offer the offering of Yahweh in its appointed season, that man shall bear his sin.

(A Nazarite Vow?) 19 He took bread (G740, Artos, raised bread or leavened bread), and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and gave to them, saying, "This is my body which is given for you. Do this in memory (Remembrance) of me."

Note: The Greek word "Artos" used
for bread here indicates that the bread of the Chagigah or "Last Supper" was leavened, thereby indicating that The Feast of UB had not yet begun. It, also, indicates that Messiah was neither perfect nor could he be GOD.

20 He took the cup in like manner Moed (H4150). This will be explained after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant (New Marriage, but in more detail a following message.

Physical Purification for the
Ancient Israelite was a "Copy" or "Physical Parallel" to a "Spiritual Truth."

John 13:2-20 Note:The Washing of one anothers

Feet is not only the Symbolic Purification of those who Follow in the Footsteps of Yahshua, and a tool This "Purification" was absolutely to teach a message of humility; but required prior to the "Observance of also, teaches us in a subtile way that Passover." we are our Brother's Keeper through the tedious process of purification (1 John 5:16).

John 11:55-57

55 Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand. Many went up to Jerusalem out of the country before the Passover, to purify themselves (to become "Clean"). 56 Then they sought for Yahshua (Messiah) and spoke one with another, as they stood in the temple, "What do you think? Isn't he coming to the feast?" 57 Now the chief priests and the Pharisees had commanded that if anyone knew where he was, he should report it, that they might seize him.

2 After supper, the devil (human nature) having already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him (Messiah), 3 Messiah Yahshua, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands (authority), and that he came forth from (was Spiritually appointed by) Yahweh, and was (Spiritually) going to Yahweh, 4 arose from supper, and laid aside his outer garments. He took a towel, and wrapped a towel around his waist. 5 Then he (Messiah) poured water into

2 Chronicles 30:15-20
15 Then they killed the Passover on the fourteenth day of the second month: and the priests and the Levites were ashamed, and sanctified themselves, and brought burnt offerings into the house of Yahweh. 16 They stood in their place after their order, according to the law of Moses the man of Yahweh: the priests sprinkled the blood which they received of the hand of the Levites. 17 For there were many in the assembly who had not sanctified themselves: therefore the Levites had the charge of killing the Passovers for everyone who was not clean, to sanctify them to Yahweh. 18 For a multitude of the people, even many of Ephraim and Manasseh, Issachar and Zebulun, had not cleansed themselves, yet did they eat the Passover otherwise than it is written. For Hezekiah (The High Priest

He said to him, "Lord (Messiah), do you wash my feet?" 7 Messiah Yahshúa answered him, "You don't know what I am doing now, but you will understand later." 8 Peter said to him, "You will never wash my feet!" Yahshúa answered him, "If I don't wash you, you have no part with me." 9 Simon Peter said to him, "Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head!" 10 Messiah Yahshúa said to him, "Someone who has bathed (a True Believer) only needs to have their feet washed, but is completely clean. You (Peter) are clean, but not all of you (referring to Judas)." 11 For he knew him who would betray him, therefore he said, "You are not all clean." 12 So when he had washed their feet, put his outer garment back on, and sat down again, he said to them, "Do you know what I have done to you? 13 You call me, 'Teacher' and 'Lord (Master).' You say so correctly, for so I am. 14 If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. 15 For I have given you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you.

that I will make with them: 'After those days,' says the Lord, 'I will put my laws on their heart, I will also write them on their mind;'" then, 17 "I will remember their sins and their iniquities no more." 18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. 19 Having therefore, brothers, boldness to enter into the holy place by the blood (Living Sacrifice) of Yahshua, 20 by the way which he dedicated for us, a new and living way, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; 21 and having a great (High) priest (Yahshúa) over the house of Yahweh; 22 let us draw near with a true heart in fullness of faith (replete), having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and having our body washed with pure water (Spiritual Cleansing), 23 let us hold fast the confession of our hope unyieldingly. For he who promised is faithful. 24 Let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good works, 25 not forsaking our own assembling together, as the custom of some is, but exhorting one another; and so much the more, as you see the Day approaching. 26 For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and a fierceness of fire

understand that it is not food that has been cleansed, but those "True Believers" who have been cleansed by their Love and Spiritual Understanding imparted by the Holy Spirit, which in this case are the Gentiles. Acts 18:4-6 (Paul is clean and decides to
be the Apostle to the Gentiles)

Hebrew 9:10-23
18 Therefore even the first covenant (marriage) has not been dedicated without blood (Note: The sheading of
blood does not automatically require death, only blood).

19 For when every commandment had been spoken by Moses to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of the calves and the goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people, 20 saying, "This is the blood of the covenant which Yahweh commanded toward you." 21 Moreover he sprinkled the tent and all the vessels of the ministry in like manner with the blood. 22 According to the law (Torah), nearly everything is cleansed with blood, and apart from shedding of blood there is no remission. 23 It was necessary therefore that the copies (tangible physical parallels) of the things in the heavens (intangible Spiritual Truths) should be cleansed

which will devour the adversaries. 28 A man who has set at nothing Moses' law dies without compassion on the word of two or three witnesses. 29 How much worse punishment, do you think, will he be judged worthy of, who has trodden under foot the Son of Yahweh, and has counted the blood of the covenant with which he was sanctified an unholy thing, and has insulted the Spirit of grace?

with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices (Living Sacrifices) than these.

Note: In other words, Messiah's
sacrifice of blood and water satisfied the physical requirement of Torah for "Purification", while his Spiritual Sacrifice through Love cleanses the "True Believer." Therefore, Being "Washed in the Blood" does not mean we are no longer sinners, but that we are merely purified or made clean for the purpose of observing the Holy Days in a worthy manner. Again, I reiterate, death is not an automatic requirement for losing blood. Atonement for Sin will not occur until Messiah Yahshua returns in the clouds of the sky and the True Believers meet with him there after the Resurrection. This event is symbolized by the Day of Atonement, and is a future event.

Leviticus 23:6-8 (NOT a part of
the "Remembrance")

1 Corinthians 11:23-27 (as a
"Remembrance")

6 On the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened (wheat) bread to Yahweh: seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. 7 In the first day you shall have a holy convocation: you shall do no servile work.

23 For I received from the Lord that which also I delivered to you, that the master Messiah Yahshúa on the night in which he was betrayed took

bread. 24 When he had given thanks, he

broke it, and said, "Take, eat. This (leavened barley bread) is my body, which is broken for you. Do this in memory of me" (a "Remembrance"). 25 In the same way he also took the cup, after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant (marriage) in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink, in memory of me" (a "Remembrance"). 26 For as often as you eat this (leavened barley) bread, and drink this cup, you proclaim the Master's death (at some future date) until he comes. 27 Therefore whoever eats this (leavened barley) bread or drinks the Master's cup in an unworthy manner, will be guilty of the body and the blood of the Master.

CONFUSION ENDED !!!!
Fact One: Yahshua knowingly spoke in parables and anthropomorphisms so that only The Eternal's Chosen Few would understand. For example, "Destroy This Temple and I will raise it up in three days. In this example he refers to H_I_M_S_E_L_F ; So that in hearing they would not hear, and in seeing they would not see. Thus some of the confusion was from a lack of Spiritual Discernment and too much legality (this we can blame on Satan). Fact Two: Yahshua IS our

PASSOVER LAMB (Spiritually Speaking). So here is what I Spiritually propose to you: Yahshua was Spiritually referring to H_I_M_S_E_L_F when he told his disciples that they should go into the upper chamber to prepare THE PASSOVER Chagigah meal (I
believe the disciples knew and understood this); And this is also why Paul said(1Corinthians 11) that whosoever

eats THIS PASSOVER (koinonia or communion) unworthily will be GUILTY of eating and drinking JUDGEMENT unto himself not discerningTHE MASTERS BODY !!!! (KUDOS to PAUL) Conclusion: Messiah was not referring to The Traditional Passover meal, but HIMSELF (at The Chagigah Peace Offering) !!!!

"The Remembrance" and "The Holy Convocations"
"In Summation" Keep all
"Annual Holy Days", but without an additional Sacrifice,

because Messiah Yahshua is our Passover; and Messiah gave himself on the Instituted Passover as per Leviticus chapter 23. Yahshua was not sacrificed on the 13th of Abib, but was crucified approximately 12 noon, and was close to death by approximately 3PM near the end of the 14th of Nisan (Abib); which is the Preparation Day on or about the traditional ninth "work" hour. Celebrate this joyous occasion with other True Believers, not as a Holy Convocation, but as a gathering of close friends and/or Family. Remember . . .

Matthew 18:20
20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in the midst of them."

As for those that cannot observe "The Remembrance" (Chagigah "Peace Offering") at the appointed time, due to travel or sickness; it is important for "True Believers" to remember that they are not "unclean" for observance

purposes, but if you are legitimately prevented from the First Observance, then you must attempt your observance one Sacred Calendar month later on the same numbered days, in the exact same manner, even if you are alone. Yahweh and Yahshua honor the "Intents of the Heart."

13th Day of Abib of the Sacred New Year:
(One Day Prior to The Instituted Preparation Day and Prior to Twilight) •

Prepare the Special "Koinonia" Remembrance Meal (Chagigah), as per Leviticus 2:4-7, 11, 13. Do not use honey, do not prepare or eat food made with grain other than fine Barley flour, but be sure to use kosher salt.

Note: If this day falls
on a weekly Sabbath, then prepare this meal and the weekly Sabbath meals on the 12th Day of Abib.

Note: Just as barley is

the first to produce fruit (before wheat) Barley symbolizes Messiah (The First of The First Fruits), but Wheat has always symbolized the rest of "The First Fruits" of The Spring harvest. See the Parable of the Tares or Darnel in Matthew 13:24-30.

14th Day of Abib of the Sacred New Year:
(After Dusk at the end of the 13th of Nisan (Abib), which will be the nighttime beginning of Nisan 14th) •

(with Raised Barley Bread)

with your family and/or with other True Believers
(in either your home or theirs) in Remembrance

of Messiah. This is not to be a Holy Convocation!

Drink a "cup" of wine
(Red Wine to symbolize Yahshua's blood).

Immediately after the Chagigah Passover "Remembrance" meal

(even if darkness has come), wash one anothers

feet. This is symbolic of the purification of True Believers, as being "Clean" in Yahweh's eyes. It is, also, a statement of being humble, and brotherly love.

14th Day of Abib of the Sacred New Year:
The Preparation Day
(between 12 Noon and 3PM),

when Messiah Yahshua was Crucified. This cannot be performed on a weekly Sabbath.

Prepare the Passover Meal, as per Leviticus 2:4-7, 11, 13 and Exodus 12:8-9 Do not use honey, do not prepare or eat food made with grain other than fine Barley flour, but be sure to use kosher salt. You need not have lamb, but if you do it should be roasted.

Be sure to prepare twice as much if the 15th falls on a weekly Sabbath.

Deuteronomy 16:6
But at the place which the Eternal Elohiym (YHWH) shall choose to place his name in(Spiritually speaking, that is His Children), there thou shalt sacrifice the Passover at even (evening), at the going down of the sun (prior to SUNSET), at the season that thou camest forth out of Egypt.

Note: Sunset occurs
prior to Twilight; and I am sure this varies with the latitude of the Earth. Just remember that the word "Even" (evening) refers to the period of time where light and dark are in a near state of balance. The actual order is "Sunset" followed by "Evening" followed by "Twilight" or "Dusk" followed by "Night."

14th Day of Abib of the Sacred New Year:
(During Twilight - when the Rooster Crows at the END of this day) •

Begin the "Passover Meal" with your family or other True Believers
(in either your home or theirs) in Remembrance

of the Exodus from Egypt (Sin). This is not to be a Holy Convocation!

Eat Leavened Barley Bread with a regular "Passover Meal," but immediately following The Passover Meal all leavening in the home must be sought out and burned (destroyed). Do not begin eating "Unleavened Bread" prior to the eating of "The Passover" (sacrifice for sin).

15th Day of Abib of the Sacred New Year:
The First Day of Unleavened Bread
(Begins after Twilight of the 14th. day, when Darkness has begun) •

Immediately after "The

Passover meal" remove ALL Leavening Agents from Home (Living Quarters - Property). Such as, yeast, and baking soda. Do not give this to someone else to keep for you! The implications of such is that you put your sins on another to keep for you. This would not show True Faith and Understanding. Additionally, removing leavening agents prior to Yahshua's sacrifice would symbolize that we were already sinless and did not need a sacrifice for sin. Therefore do not remove ALL leavening agents from your house prior to the beginning of The First Day of Unleavened Bread. However, it would be wise to not purchase leavened food or leavening agents for a couple of months prior to Passover so that there would be time to consume what already exists.

Exodus 12:15
15 Seven days shall you eat unleavened (wheat) bread; even the first day

you shall put away leaven out of your houses.

Keep all leavening agents from the inside of your home until after the Last Day of Unleavened Bread. If you discover any after the First Day, discard it immediately; this is symbolic of discarding hidden sins in our lives. This Day is a Holy Convocation; where two or three (or more) are gathered. If this day is, also, a weekly Sabbath, you may not prepare food this day. Food must be prepared in advance if this day is a weekly Sabbath. Remember: You are forbidden to kindle a fire on a weekly Sabbath, but you may keep one going if kindled prior to The Sabbath.

21st Day of Abib of the Sacred New Year:
The Last Day of Unleavened Bread

(Begins after Twilight of the 20th. day, when Darkness has begun) •

This Day is a Holy Convocation; where two or three (or more) are gathered. If this day is, also, a weekly Sabbath, you may not prepare food this day. Food must be prepared in advance if this day is a weekly Sabbath.

The First Fruits
Who are the "First Fruits," and how are they symbolized in Yahweh's Holy Scripture?

Leviticus 23:10-17 (Spiritual Parallels are in parenthesis)
10 Speak to the children of Israel (The True Seed of Abraham or the "Inward Jew"), and tell them, When you are come into the land which I give to you (The Coming Kingdom on Earth), and shall reap the (human) harvest of it, then you shall bring the sheaf of the First-Fruits (The Chosen Few - of mankind) of your (human) harvest (of True Worshippers) to the priest (Yahshua, our High Priest): 11 and he shall wave the sheaf of wheat (present them as if pure wheat) before Yahweh, to be accepted for you: on the next day after the (annual) Sabbath the priest shall wave it (this occurs on the morrow of The First Day of Unleavened

Bread).

Note: The Symbolism of the First-Fruits only begins here; the
complete symbolism continues through Pentecost, which culminates with the First-Fruits having received the 'Full Measure' of Yahweh's Holy Spirit. This is the Full Measure of Yahweh's Holy Character, Mind, Power that is imparted after the First Resurrection. The FirstFruits (other than Messiah) are not only symbolized by wheat, but by all the First-Fruits of all the various harvests that occur during the Seven Weeks that lead up to and culminate with Pentecost. These various varieties of First-Fruits, also, symbolize the various Gentile peoples who have become "Inward Jews" (Spiritual Jews or 'Wheat').

12 In the day when you wave the sheaf (of wheat), you shall offer a he-lamb without blemish (This is symbolic of a living "SELF-sacrifice") a year old for a burnt offering to Yahweh.

Note: It should be noted that this burnt offering is a personal
sacrifice that symbolizes death to SELF. However, it is a "Living Sacrifice" in as much as it is a personal sacrifice by the owner of the lamb; and even though the lamb dies, it is still not the lambs sacrifice. This sacrifice, also, symbolizes our willingness to follow the example of Messiah. 13 The meal-offering of it shall be two tenth parts of an ephah of fine (wheat) flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire (physically baked or fried, and Spiritually refined by fire) to Yahweh for a sweet savor; and the drink-offering of it shall be of wine, the fourth part of a hin. 14 You shall eat neither bread, nor parched grain, nor fresh ears (barley corn), until this same day, until you have brought the offering of Yahweh: it is a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. 15 You shall count to you from the next day after the (7th day) Sabbath, from the day (following The First Day of Unleavened Bread) that you brought the

sheaf of the wave-offering; seven (weekly) Sabbaths shall there be complete (forty-nine days): 16 even to the next day (forty-nine days plus one is fifty days) after the seventh (weekly) Sabbath shall you number fifty days; and you shall offer a new meal-offering to Yahweh. 17 You shall bring out of your habitations two wave-loaves (no longer sheaves, but fully prepared) of two tenth parts of an ephah: they shall be of fine (Wheat) flour, they shall be baked with yeast (symbolizing those who have come out of sin and have found Favor or Grace in Yahweh's eyes), for first-fruits (the small harvest of the Chosen Few) to Yahweh.

The Feast of Weeks
Shavuot, Pentecost, Feast of First Fruits

Part Four - A Joyous Spring Harvest
by D. J. Love, Minister, TSN, SBC Rewritten 8-7-2004 Refined 4-17-2007

This is the least understood of all of "The Feasts." By comparison to the other "Feasts," there was/is little attention given to it details, and yet it should be highly understood. It is (after all) The Feast period that represents The Eternal's Chosen Few (The Eternal's Spiritual Spring Harvest). This "Feast Period" includes The Day of Pentecost, and is closely associated with "Shavuot" (also called Shabuoth) Historically or traditionally Shavuot was celebrated for two days on the 6th and 7th of the month of Sivan. King David is reported to have been born during Shavuot; Many refer to Shavuot as "The Feast of weeks" or "The Feast of The First Fruits." The question is: Is Shavuot or "The Feast of Weeks" actually "Pentecost" or are they related in a way that is similar to other feast periods, wherein one or two Annual Holy Days fall at the beginning and/or at the end of The Feast period (season)? Let me suggest this to you: Shavuot or Shabuoth is most probably the combination of the (Seventh Day) Weekly Sabbath (Shabbat) and the "Annual Sabbath" of Pentecost (First Day), since these two Sabbaths are

always together anyway. Additionally, historical and Scriptural evidence highly suggests that all Feasts are "Moeds" (Appointed Full Moon Feasts), which are documented as lasting seven days for The Feast of Unleavened bread, and also, for The Feast of Ingathering (Sukkot or Tabernacles); which I might add, both always begin with a Full Moon. I suggest to you that The Feast of Weeks or First Fruits is no different, except that it appears to end in a Full Moon (symbolic of Light versus darkness). However, only Shavuot (The Seventh Day Sabbath and Pentecost combined) is a Holy Convocation.

Pentecost
Scripture and Ancient Hebrew tradition teaches that "Feasts" are "Appointed Times" (Moeds) and still are referred to as a “mikrah” (a rehearsal) of something that The Eternal had in mind for a time in the future. In other words, for the Ancient Hebrews it was a "Rehearsal" and glimpse into the beginning and ending of YHVH's "Plan of Salvation." There are several schools of thought on the timing of this/these event(s). Some say fifty days after the resurrection of Messiah; of course there is a disagreement as to when this occurred. Some say fifty days from the weekly Sabbath that occurs during the Feast of Unleavened Bread, but some scholars say this sometimes falls too close to the end of The Feast of Unleavened Bread." So who is correct? At least you should be aware that whenever you see the term "First Fruits," Scripture/Epistles are always symbolically referring to "The Premillennial Spring Harvest," and when the subject is "The Sabbath Millennium," and "The Great White Throne Judgement," it is the "Millennial / Postmillennial Fall Harvest." Maybe we can find some answers in another arena, but first the not so basic "basics."

Exodus 34:22 (The Two Harvest periods)
22 You shall observe the Feast of Weeks with the First-Fruits of (The Spring) wheat harvest, and (you shall also observe) the Feast of (The Fall) Harvest (Succoth or Tabernacles) at the (Sacred) year's end (in

Autumn not Winter).

Matthew 9:35-38 (a Spiritual Harvest)
35 (Messiah) Yahshua went about all the cities and the villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the (Coming) kingdom, and healing every disease and every sickness among the people (a foretaste of things to come).

Note: This "Coming Kingdom," that The Messiah
preached and taught, is the exact same kingdom, that "The Thief on the Cross" inquired about. This "Coming Kingdom" (on Earth) is "The Paradise" that Messiah mentioned; Messiah was not speaking of Heaven, but rather "The Spiritually Promised Land," (flowing with milk and honey) and "The New Jerusalem." See: "The Thief On The Cross."

36 But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, as sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples (also Firstfruits), "The Harvest indeed is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Pray therefore that the Master of the harvest will send forth laborers into His (2000 Year Spiritual Spring) Harvest."

Revelation 14:14-18 (The Spiritual Spring Harvest)
14 I looked, and behold, a white cloud (first heaven or sky. There are 3 heavens); and on the cloud one sitting like a son of man (a human), having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. 15 Another angel (messenger of YHWH) came out from the temple, crying with a loud voice to him who sat on the cloud,

"Send forth your sickle, and reap; for the hour to reap has come; for The Harvest of the earth is ripe!" 16 He (The Messiah by Yahweh's Authority) who sat on the cloud (Matthew 24:30, 26:64; 1 Thess. 4:17) thrust his sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped. 17 Another angel came out from the temple which is in heaven. He also had a sharp sickle. 18 Another angel came out from the altar, he who has power over fire, and he called with a great voice to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, "Send forth your sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are fully ripe!" See Also: Matthew 13:24-30; John 4:35-38;

Leviticus 23:10-17 (Spiritual Parallels are in parenthesis)
10 Speak to the ("True Spiritual Seed of Abraham") children of Israel, and tell them, When you are come into the land (The Coming Kingdom on Earth) which I give to you, and shall reap the (human) harvest of it, then you shall bring the sheaf of the First-Fruits (The Chosen Few - of mankind) of your (human) harvest (of True Worshippers) to the priest (Messiah, our High Nazarite Priest): 11 and he (The High Nazarite Priest) shall wave the sheaf (present them as purified wheat) before Yahweh, to be accepted for you: on the next day after the Sabbath (Strong's H7676) the priest shall wave it. This particular Sabbath is most assuredly the day after "The First Day of Unleavened Bread."
Continued

Note: Messiah was/is represented as leavened Barley Bread,
but the rest of "The First Fruits" that follow in Messiah's footsteps are symbolized by a sheaf of Wheat.

Note: Strongs #H7676, is a word that identifies a Sabbath as

a period of time that involves the number seven. It can be every seventh day, every seventh year or a Sabbath of the seventh month or an annual Sabbath of which there are seven: (1) The First Day of Unleavened Bread (2) The Last Day of Unleavened Bread (3) Pentecost (4) Yom Teruah (First Day of Rosh Hashanah) (5) Yom Kippur (Tenth Day of Rosh Hashanah) (6) Succoth or Sukkat (First Day of Succoth) (7) Succoth (The Last Great Day or Eighth Day of Succoth).

Note: The phrase "priest shall wave it" is also symbolically
referring to our new High Nazarite Priest, Messiah Y'shua, while the wave sheaf, also, symbolically refers to "The Chosen Few" (First-Fruits). Remember, not only is Messiah (Y'shua) the "First of The First Fruits," but the Apostles, and every true believer that ever lived has become an eternal part of The First Fruits (Spring Harvest), because of the effort of those "First Fruits" that came before them. Thus (in essence) "The First Fruits" symbolically begins as a "Shadow of Things to Come" with The Day of The Wave Sheaf on the morrow of "The First Day of Unleavened Bread", and continues for seven weekly Sabbaths from the weekly (7th day) Sabbath that occurs during "The Feast of Unleavened Bread," and culminates with Pentecost, Shavuot AND The Feast of First Fruits (Feast of Weeks).

Leviticus 23:3 Six days shall work be done: but the
seventh day [is] the Sabbath (Strong's #H7676) of Rest, a Holy Convocation; ye shall do no work [therein]: it [is] the Sabbath (Strong's #H7676) of Yehowah (The Eternal, Self-existent Creator) in all your dwellings. Also, a "Sabbath of Rest" is always a Seventh Day Sabbath or a Sabbath Year (every Seventh Year for the Earth).

Exodus 35:3 Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your
habitations upon the (weekly) Sabbath Day (This is

noteworthy).

Continuation

Leviticus 23:10-17
12 In the day (after the Annual Sabbath) when you wave the sheaf, you shall offer a he-lamb without blemish (A symbolic SELF-Sacrifice) a year old for a burnt offering to Yahweh. (Note: Remember! Do not kindle a fire during a weekly 7th day Sabbath).

Note: This sacrifice is a symbolic "Self-sacrifice" indicating
the willingness of "The First Fruits" to follow Messiah's example. Therefore, this symbolic sacrifice must immediately follow on the morrow after "Passover" and "The First Day of Unleavened Bread." Please be aware that this sacrifice does not require the death of the "True Believer," it only requires "The True Believer" to suffer physical loss (the lamb), and is therefore a "Living Sacrifice" for he/she who sacrifices.

13 The meal-offering of it shall be two tenth parts of an ephah of fine (Wheat) flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire (physically baked or fried, and Spiritually refined by fire) to Yahweh for a sweet savor; and the drink-offering of it shall be of wine, the fourth part of a hin (H1969, Hiyn, a liquid measure, approximately equal to 5 quarts or 6 liters). 14 You shall eat neither bread, nor parched grain, nor fresh ears (barley corn), until this same day (day after the First Annual Sabbath Day of UB), until (after) you have brought the offering of your G-d: it is a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

Note: The Offering referred to here is the symbolism of
having become a True Worshipper by accepting and following the teachings of Messiah's Self-Sacrifice, which is freewill obedience to the 'Righteous Intent of Yahweh's Laws.'

15 You shall count to you from (following) the next day after the (7th day) Sabbath (H7676), from (that follows) the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave-offering; seven (additional weekly) Sabbaths (H7676) shall there be complete (These cannot be annual Sabbaths, since this is an annual event): 16 even to the next day after the seventh (weekly) Sabbath (H7676) shall you number fifty days (here we have confirmation of seven weekly Sabbaths); and you shall offer a new (newly harvested) meal-offering to Yahweh. 17 You shall bring out of your habitations two wave-loaves (no longer sheaves, but fully prepared loaves) of two tenth parts of an ephah: they shall be of fine (Wheat) flour, they shall be baked with yeast
(symbolizing those who are coming out of sin and have found Favor or Grace in Yahweh's eyes), for first-fruits (the small 'Spring' harvest of the Chosen Few) to Yahweh.

Note: The two loaves (not sheaves) represent G-d (Elohim)
prophetically gathering His children out from among the Hebrews and the Gentiles. The two loaves, also, represent the provision of a double portion.

Numbers 28:26-31 (Verses 27-31, what got "Nailed on the Cross"
along with "Self-centeredness")

26 Also in the day of the First-Fruits (Pentecost), when you offer a new meal-offering to Yahweh during your Feast of Weeks, you shall have a Holy Convocation; you shall do no servile work; 27 but you shall offer a burnt offering for a sweet savor to Yahweh: two young bulls, one ram, seven he-lambs a year old; 28 and their meal-offering, fine (wheat) flour mingled with oil, three tenth parts for each bull, two tenth parts for the one ram, 29 a tenth part for every lamb of the seven lambs; 30 one male goat, to make atonement for you. 31 Besides the continual burnt offering, and the meal-offering of it, you shall offer them (they shall be to you without blemish), and their drink-offerings (Symbolic of ALL of the First Fruits, including messiah, as being without blemish in YHVH's opinion).

Colossians 2:13-23 (The Triumph of Yahshua Messiah's
Ministry)

13 You were dead through your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh (an attitude of "Self" or a sinful attitude). He (Yahshua) made you (taught you by example) alive (Spiritually with an attitude of Love) together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses (not through his own power, but by the authority of Yahweh that was bestowed on him); 14 having blotted out the bond written in ordinances that was against us (the letter of the law), which was contrary to us (not Spiritual like the Intent of the Law): and he has taken it out that way, nailing it (the Letter of the Law and "Self") to the cross (this is truly "Self-Sacrifice");

Note: Yahshua's Death was a sacrifice of "Self" for the
benefit of all. He gave his entire adult life (a selfless act) so that he could teach us (by example) what was meant by the "Spirit or Intent of the Law." Thereby becoming our "Role Model." See "Sacrifice of Messiah."

15 having stripped the principalities and the powers (of this
present evil Earth by his obedience to Yahweh with a Spirit of Love),

he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it. 16 Let no man therefore judge you in eating, or in drinking, or with respect to a Feast Day or a New Moon or a Sabbath Day (which you should keep according to the Spirit or Intent of the Law), 17 which are a shadow (foretaste, "Mikrah" or "Rehearsal") of the things to come (the preferred state of existence for Yahweh's "Coming Kingdom on Earth"); but the body (the Assembly of Believers or First Fruits) is Yahshua's (The Messiah is the very first of all of the "First Fruits"). 18 Let no man rob you of your prize by a voluntary humility

and worshipping of the angels, dwelling in the things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, 19 and not holding firmly to the Head (the leadership example of Yahshua), from whom all the (Spiritual) body, being supplied and knit together through the joints and ligaments, grows with G-d's (Spiritual) growth. 20 If you died (to Self) with Yahshua from the elements of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject

yourselves to ordinances (after the precepts and doctrines of men? NOT the Spiritual ordinances of Yahweh) ,
21 "Don't handle, nor taste, nor touch" (which is what men say) 22 (all which things are to perish with the using), after the

precepts and doctrines of men?
23 Which things indeed appear like wisdom in self-imposed worship, and humility, and severity to the body; but aren't of any value against the indulgence of the flesh.

Note: Ever see Filipino Catholics whipping themselves
with whips of sharp objects or crawling on their knees for miles in some man made Christo-pagan ritual?

Deuteronomy 16:9-12 (freewill offerings, charity, and rejoicing among
the brethren)

9 Seven weeks (49 days) shall you number to you: from the time you begin to put the sickle to the standing grain (and make a "Wave Sheaf" from it) shall you begin to number seven weeks. 10 You shall keep the Feast of Weeks to Yahweh your G-d with a tribute of a freewill-offering of your hand (your work), which you shall give (Charity), according as Yahweh your G-d blesses you: 11 and you shall rejoice before Yahweh your G-d, you, and your son, and your daughter, and your man-servant, and your maid-servant, and the Levite (Priest) who is within your gates, and the sojourner, and the fatherless, and the widow, who are in the midst of you, in the place which Yahweh your G-d shall choose, to cause his name to dwell there (This is your place of Holy Convocation, and can be your home).

12 You shall remember that you were a bondservant in Egypt (a slave to sin): and you shall observe and do these statutes.

Note: Being a Freewill Offering among the brethren or those
you encounter may present itself in many ways, so be vigilant for the opportunity for charity to present itself. However, remember, this is a foretaste of a Spiritual lifestyle that will exist on a daily basis in the "Coming Kingdom on Earth," (Paradise) and thus, the Intent or Spirit of this Sabbath period is to be applied to our daily lives, and not just during this time period.

One might think that we should not be concerned with the Ordinances of Yahweh, but then, "Where does our heart lie?" "Does it lie with The Holy Spirit of Yahweh's Love or with the unholy attitudes or the spirit of man?"

Romans 2:25-29 (The True Seed of Abraham)
25 For circumcision indeed profits, if you are a doer of the law, but if you are a transgressor of the law, your circumcision has become uncircumcision. 26 If therefore the uncircumcised keep the ordinances of the law, won't his uncircumcision be accounted as circumcision? 27 Won't the uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfills the law, judge you, who with the letter and circumcision are a transgressor of the law? 28 For he (or she) is not a Jew who is one outwardly, neither is that circumcision which is outward in the flesh; 29 but he is a Jew who is one inwardly (the "Inward Jew"), and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit not in the letter (of the Law); whose praise is not from men, but from G-d.

So enjoy this "Harvest" FORETASTE or "Mikrah" (Rehearsal) of "Things to Come" in the Spirit of Love and Charity, as it was always intended to be

ENJOYED.

Have a Blessed "Feast of Weeks!"
And send someone a Sabbath Greeting Card!

The Holy Sabbaths
of the Sacred Seventh Month.

Part Five
by D. J. Love, Minister, TSN, SBC Written 8-17-2002 Revised 2-18-2003 Refined 1-17-2005

Rosh HaShanah
Yom Teruah & Yom Kippur Rosh HaShanah (not an "Appointed Feast Day") is the first of four special
annual Sabbaths that occur during the Sacred Seventh Month on Yahweh's Sacred Calendar, which is a direct physical parallel to the coming Spiritual Seventh or Sabbath Millennium. Rosh HaShanah marks the beginning of the opening of "The Seventh Seal" in The Book of Revelation in chapters 8 through 11, in 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18, and 1 Corinthians 15:All. Rosh HaShanah is a period of time that incorporates both "Yom Teruah" and "Yom Kippur." Rosh HaShanah and Yom Teruah both begin on the same

day, but Yom Teruah represents The Blowing of The First Six Trumpets and First Two Woes, while "Yom Kippur" represents The Blowing of The Seventh Trumpet and Third or Final Woe by Messiah himself. This is a solemn (Serious not Festive), yet "Heart Felt" occasion for those who wear the "Mark of Yahweh" or "Shema."

Note: Please make yourself aware, if you are not already aware, that
all of Yahweh's Annual "High Sabbaths" are designed by Yahweh to teach those of us with "Ears to Hear" and "Eyes to See" about the True "Plan of Salvation." All High Sabbaths are physical examples of Spiritual Truths (Shadows of Things to Come" or "Rehearsals") and are not to be followed as legalistic rules and regulations, but are to be used as a tool to learn and teach Spiritual Truths.

By ignoring Yahweh's Holy Sabbaths, Christians (and others) have completely separated themselves from Yahweh and from the key to unlocking the so called mysteries of The Book of Revelation and other prophecies.

Revelation 8:1-2, 6-13
(1) When he opened the seventh seal (Rosh HaShanah), there followed a silence in heaven for about half an hour. I saw the seven AGGELOS (messengers) who stand before G-d, and seven trumpets were given to them (one each). (6) The seven AGGELOS (messengers) who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. The first sounded (Yom Teruah), and there followed hail and fire, mingled with blood, and they were thrown on the earth. One third of the earth was burnt up, and one third of the trees were burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. The second AGGELOS (messenger) sounded (Yom Teruah), and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea. One third of the sea became blood, and one third of the creatures which were in the sea died, those who had life. One third of the ships were destroyed. The third AGGELOS (messenger) sounded (Yom Teruah),

and a great star fell from the sky, burning like a torch, and it fell on one third of the rivers, and on the springs of the waters. The name of the star is called "Wormwood." One third of the waters became wormwood (polluted or poisonous). Many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter (like hemlock). The fourth AGGELOS (messenger) sounded (Yom Teruah), and one third of the sun was struck, and one third of the moon, and one third of the stars; so that one third of them would be darkened (reduced visibility), and the day wouldn't shine for one third of it, and the night in the same way. I saw, and I heard (what appeared to be) an eagle, flying in mid heaven, saying with a loud voice, "Woe! Woe! Woe (the three woes or the next three trumpets) for those who dwell on the earth, because of the other voices of the trumpets of the three AGGELOS (messengers), who are yet to sound.

Note: The Greek word AGGELOS primarily means
"Messenger." However, that messenger does not have to be an angel. An AGGELOS may be an angel and usually is an angel, because angels are Yahweh's primary messengers; BUT Yahshua Messiah is, also, Yahweh's Messenger, First Son, Ambassador, Champion, First of the First Fruits, and more! Yahshua Messiah is not an angel, but may appears as (like unto) a very powerful Archangel to someone who is desperately trying to describe a situation that is almost beyond words (as we shall see). Additionally, YHVH's "Chosen Few" are , also, messengers (ministers) of YHVH's Spiritual Truths.

Revelation 9:1-6, 13-16 (The Three Woes, and the Shema)
(1)The fifth AGGELOS (messenger) sounded (Yom Teruah), and I saw a star (asteroid?) from the sky fallen to the earth. The key to (the power to open) the pit of the abyss (bottomless pit or a giant hole into the crust of the Earth) was given to him. He opened the pit of the abyss, and smoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke from a great furnace. The sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke from the pit (more polluted air from volcanic "like" ash and dust). Then out of the smoke

came forth (what appeared to be) locusts (that which falls, lands or lights on the head or on the tops of things) on the earth, and power was given to them, as the scorpions of the earth have power. They were told that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree, but only those men who don't have G-d's seal (Shema) on their foreheads. They were given power not to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion, when it strikes a man. In those days men will seek death, and will in no way find it. They will desire to die, and death will flee from them. (13) The sixth AGGELOS (messenger) sounded (Yom Teruah). I heard a voice from the horns of the golden altar which is before G-d, saying to the sixth AGGELOS (messenger) who had one trumpet, "Free the four AGGELOS (messengers) who are bound at the great river Euphrates." The four AGGELOS (messengers) were freed who had been prepared for that hour and day and month and year, so that they would kill one third of mankind. The number of the armies of the horsemen was two hundred million. I heard the number of them.

Revelation 10: 1-7 (Yahshua appears in the clouds)
(1) I saw (what appeared to be) another, Mighty AGGELOS (a Mighty Messenger, like unto an Archangel or a Rabbi), coming down out of the sky, clothed with a cloud (see 1 Thessalonians 4:16 below).

Malachi 3:1-3 Behold, I send my messenger (Aggelos in Greek, and Malak in
Hebrew; Strongs #4397; a messenger, deputy, angel, teacher, rabbi, ambassador, king), and he (Yahshua) will prepare the way before

me; and the lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to his temple; and the messenger of the covenant (marriage supper/vow), whom you desire, behold, he comes!" says Yahweh of hosts. 2 "But who can endure the day of his coming? And who will stand when he appears? For he is like a refiner's fire, and like launderer's soap; 3 and he will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will

purify the sons of Levi (the chosen are priests or ministers; Exodus 19:5-6, Revelation 5:9-10), and refine them as gold and silver; and they shall offer to Yahweh offerings in righteousness.

A rainbow was on his head. His face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire (This is obviously not a mere angel). He had in his hand a little book open (the little book of life, as few are chosen). He set his right foot on the sea, and his left on the land. He cried with a loud voice, as a lion (of Judah) roars. When he cried, the seven thunders uttered their voices. When the seven thunders sounded, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from the sky saying, "Seal up the things which the seven thunders said, and don't write them." The AGGELOS (Mighty Messenger) who I saw standing on the sea and on the land lifted up his right hand to the sky, and swore by Him (Yahweh) who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and the things that are in it, the earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it, that there will no longer be delay, but in the days of the voice (Trumpet) of the seventh AGGELOS (The Messiah is the Mighty Messenger) , when he is about to sound, then the mystery of G-d is finished, as He declared to His servants, the prophets.

Matthew 24:30-31
then the sign of the Son of Man (Messiah Yahshua) will appear in the sky. Then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man (Messiah Yahshua) coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory. 31 He (Messiah Yahshua) will send forth his AGGELOS (messengers) with a great sound of a trumpet (which he will sound), and they will gather together his elect (chosen few who are written in the little book) from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.

Revelation 11:14-15 (Messiah Sounds The Last Trumpet)

14 The second woe (sixth trumpet) is past. Behold, the third woe (Last Trumpet) comes quickly. 15 The seventh AGGELOS (Mighty Messenger or Messiah) sounded (Yom Kippur), and there followed great voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Kurios (He who is the highest in authority), and of His Messiah. He will reign forever and ever!"

Matthew 16:27
27 For the Son of Man (Messiah Yahshua) will come in the glory of his Father with his AGGELOS (messengers) , and then will he render to every man according to his deeds (as written in the little book of life).

Note: The Greek word "Kurios" does NOT specifically
designate G-d and Messiah as one person, but does specify that the one (either Yahweh or Yahshua) who is "In Charge" (according to the situation) is the one who is in authority with Yahweh being the supreme authority, and Yahshua as His second in command. Whether the sentence is speaking about Yahweh or the Messiah is specified or made clear by the rest of the sentence, paragraph or chapter. In this case the Kurios is Yahweh, but sometimes the one "In Charge" is Messiah Yahshua (who actually has been given Yahweh's Authority as
Yahweh's Ambassador, highest ranking messenger or Mighty AGGELOS). "Kurios" basically means "He who is in charge at

the time." Of course, Yahweh is always "In Charge," but as his reward Messiah Yahshua (who only does the will of Yahweh) has been given the authority to be "In Charge" (Matthew 9:6, 28:18, John 17:1-2) concerning his part in Yahweh's "Plan of Salvation." The confusion over the identity between Yahweh and Yahshua is because of the "Oneness of their Authority." This "Oneness" (Spiritual / Mental Unity) makes Yahweh and Yahshua appear to be the same entity; But they are not! Only

the Authority, the Will or Holy Mentality (Holy Spirit) are the same.

John 5:25-28
25 Most assuredly, I tell you, the hour comes, and now is, when the dead will hear the (first) Son of G-d's voice; and those who hear will live. 26 For as the Father has (eternal) life in himself, even so He gave to the Son also to have (eternal) life in himself. 27 He also gave him authority to execute judgment, because he is a son of man (a human being). 28 Don't marvel at this, for the hour comes, in which all that are in the tombs will hear his voice,

1 Corinthians 15:24, 51-52
24 Then the end comes, when he (Messiah) will deliver (give) up the kingdom to G-d, even the Father; when he will have abolished all (Earthly) rule and all authority and power. 51 Behold, I tell you a mystery. We will not all sleep, but we (the Chosen or First Fruits of the Spring Harvest) will all be changed, 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet (Yom Kippur). For the (Seventh) Trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we will be changed.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 (Messiah sounds the Last Trumpet).
16 For the Kurios (One In Charge" or Messiah) himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel (Mighty AGGELOS), and with G-d's (seventh) trumpet. The dead (chosen few)

in Messiah will rise first, 17 then we (chosen few) who are (still) alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds (see Rev. 10 above), to meet the Kurios (One In Charge" or Messiah) in the air. So we will be with the Kurios (One In Charge" or Messiah) forever. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.

As for the observance of Rosh HaShanah (Yom Teruah & Yom Kippur), it is an emotionally conservative (solemn occasion; not a Feast Day), but inwardly joyous occasion for those "Chosen Few" who worship Yahweh in both "Spirit and in Truth." It is a time for sounding Trumpets and praising Yahweh for His Love, 'Plan of Salvation,' and for His Messiah.

Leviticus 23:23-25
23 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 24 Speak to the children of Israel (The Chosen Few or Spiritual Seed), saying, In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, shall be a solemn (Atsarah) rest (a serious Sabbath) to you, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a Holy Convocation (Assembly). 25 You shall do no servile work; and you shall offer an offering made by fire (Spiritual Fire) to Yahweh.

Note: Atsarah means "To hold back or refrain," but Spiritual
rejoicing is not limited to a party like atmosphere. When people silently cry tears of joy, do they not still inwardly rejoice? Believe me, it you are one of the Chosen Few, you will be praising Yahweh and rejoicing in your heart, but you will also be experiencing the "Glory of Yahweh," the "End of Human Government," "Vindication of Persecutions," etc... .

Note: If this day were to fall on a weekly (Seventh Day)
Sabbath, then cooked meals must be prepared in advance. However, the offering made by fire here does not refer to cooked food, but YHVH's "Chosen Few," who suffered trail and

purification by "The Refiner's Fire."

Numbers 29:1-6
In the seventh (Sacred Hebrew Calendar) month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a holy convocation; you shall do no servile work: it is a day of blowing of trumpets (Yom Teruah & Yom Kippur) to you. 2 You shall offer a burnt offering (Refined by Spiritual Fire) for a sweet savor to Yahweh: one young bull, one ram, seven he-lambs a year old without blemish; 3 and their meal-offering, fine flour mingled with oil, three tenth parts for the bull, two tenth parts for the ram, 4 and one tenth part for every lamb of the seven lambs; 5 and one male goat for a sin-offering, to make atonement for you; 6 besides the burnt offering of the new moon, and the meal-offering of it, and the continual burnt offering and the meal-offering of it, and their drink-offerings, according to their ordinance, for a sweet savor, an offering made by fire (physically cooked or grilled over flame, and Spiritually refined by fire) to Yahweh.

Note: The Sacrifice for sin has already been made, and the
"Living Sacrifices" of True Worshippers are being made every day, but as a personal memorial prepare a meal that symbolizes the meaning of "The Seventh Seal," and inwardly rejoice in the Righteousness of Yahweh. Afterall, YHVH's Children are the offering made by fire in this Physical to Spiritual Scenario.

The Holy Sabbaths
of the Sacred Seventh Month. Part Six

The Day of Atonement
Yom Kippur

The Day of Atonement is the second of four special annual Sabbaths that occur during the Sacred Seventh Month on Yahweh's Sacred Calendar. This day is, also, a solemn (serious), yet "Heart Felt" occasion for those who wear the "Mark of Yahweh" or "Shema," and just like "The Feast of Trumpets," (Yom Teruah) it is a prophetic foretaste of the events that are to occur in the latter days as recorded in the Book of Revelation in chapters 11 and 19-20. Remember, all of Yahweh's Annual "High Sabbaths" are designed by Yahweh to teach those of us with "Ears to Hear" and "Eyes to See" about the True "Plan of Salvation." All Annual Sabbaths are physical examples of Spiritual Truths and are not to be followed as legalistic rules and regulations, but are to be maintained and used as a tool to learn and teach Spiritual Truths. The Days of Atonement (Yom Kippur) begins with the sound of "The Last Trumpet," as portrayed in Revelation chapters eight and nine.

Revelation 11:15-19 (The Millennial Day of Atonement begins)
15 The seventh Aggelos (Messiah Yahshua) sounded, and there followed great voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord (Elohim), and of His Messiah (Y'shua). He (Yahweh) will reign forever and ever!" 16 The twenty-four elders, who sit before Yahweh on their thrones, fell on their faces and worshiped Yahweh, 17 saying: "We give you thanks, O' Yahweh, the Almighty (ElShaddai), the one who is and who was; because you have taken your great power, and reigned. 18 The nations were angry, and your wrath came (past tense), as did the

time for the dead to be judged (NOT The Great White Throne Judgement), and to give (during the Atonement) your servants, the prophets, their reward, as well as the saints, and those who fear your name, the small and the great; and to destroy those who destroy the earth." 19 Yahweh's temple that is in heaven was opened, and the ark of Yahweh's covenant was seen in His temple. There followed lightnings, sounds, thunders, an earthquake, and great hail.

"Faith, Grace, and Atonement Explained".

Revelation 19:All (The finale of The Day of Atonement)
After these things I heard something like a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, "Halleluyah! Salvation, glory, and power belong to our G-d: 2 for true and righteous are His judgments. For He has judged the great prostitute (false world religions and faiths of Babylon), she who corrupted the earth with her sexual immorality (Spiritual idolatry), and He has avenged the blood of His servants at her hand." 3 A second time they said, "Halleluyah! Her smoke goes up forever and ever." 4 The twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped G-d (Yahweh) who sits on the throne, saying, "Amen! Halleluyah!" 5 A voice came forth from the throne, saying, "Give praise to our G-d, all you His servants, you who fear Him, the small and the great!" 6 I heard something like the voice of a great multitude, and like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of mighty thunders, saying, "Halleluyah! For the LORD our G-d, the Almighty (Yahweh), reigns! 7 Let us rejoice and be exceedingly glad, and let us give the glory to Him (Yahweh). For the marriage (covenant) of the Lamb has come, and his bride (Chosen Few) has made herself ready." 8 It was given to her that she would array herself in bright, pure, fine

linen: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints (their personal ministries). 9 He said to me, "Write, 'Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.'" He said to me, "These are true words of G-d." 10 I fell down before his feet to worship him. He said to me, "Look! Don't do it! I am a fellow bond servant with you and with your brothers who hold the testimony of Yahshua. Worship Yahweh, for the testimony of Yahshua is the Spirit of Prophecy." 11 I saw the heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and he (Messiah Yahshua), who sat on it, is called Faithful and True. In righteousness he judges and makes war (by Yahweh's Authority). 12 His eyes are a flame of fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has names written and a name written which no one knows but he himself. 13 He is clothed in a garment sprinkled with blood. His name is called "The Word of G-d" (The Promised Messiah or YHVH's Ambassador or Proxy ). 14 The armies which are in heaven followed him on white horses, clothed in white, pure, fine linen (Righteousness). 15 Out of his mouth proceeds a (an exceedingly) sharp, two-edged sword (Hebrews 4:12-13), that with it he should strike the nations. He will rule them with a rod of iron (unyielding to evil). He treads the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of Yahweh, the Almighty (ElShaddai). 16 He has on his garment and on his thigh a name written, "KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS" (that is to say, "King of human kings, and Lord of human lords; under Yahweh's Authority). 17 I saw an Aggelos (Messenger of Yahweh) standing in the sun. He cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the sky, "Come! Be gathered together to the great (Marriage) supper of Yahweh, 18 that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and slave, and small and great." 19 I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him who sat on the horse, and against his army. 20 The beast was taken, and with him the false prophet who worked the signs in his sight, with which he deceived those who had received

the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. They two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur. 21 The rest were killed with the sword of him who sat on the horse, the sword which came forth out of his mouth (The Word of Yahweh). All the birds were filled with their flesh.

Hebrews 4:12-13
12 For the word of Yahweh is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and quick to discern the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 There is no creature that is hidden from his sight, but all things are naked and laid open before the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

Revelation 20:1-4
I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand. 2 He seized the dragon (source of human nature), the old serpent, which is the Devil and Satan (Azazel), and bound him for one thousand years (The Sabbath Millennium), 3 and cast him into the abyss (Spiritual wilderness), and shut it, and sealed it over him, that he should deceive the nations no more, until the thousand years (Sabbath Millennium) were finished. After this, he must be freed for a short time (100 years). 4 I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Yahshua (Messiah), and for the word of Yahweh, and such as didn't worship the beast nor his image, and didn't receive the mark on their forehead and on their hand. They lived, and reigned with Messiah one thousand years.

Leviticus 16:8-11 (see Atonement Symbolism)
8 Aaron shall cast lots on the two goats; one lot for Yahweh,

and the other lot for Azazel (Devil and Satan). 9 Aaron shall present the goat (Yahshua) on which the lot fell for Yahweh, and offer him (Yahshua) for a sin-offering. 10 But the goat, on which the lot fell for Azazel, shall be set alive before Yahweh, to make atonement for him, to send him away for Azazel into the wilderness. 11 Aaron shall present the bull of the sin-offering, which is for himself, and shall make atonement for himself, and for his house, and shall kill the bull of the sin-offering which is for himself:

1 Corinthians 15:24, 51-52
24 Then the end comes, when he (Messiah) will deliver (give) up the kingdom to Yahweh, even the Father; when he will have abolished all (Earthly) rule and all authority and power.

As for the observance of The Day of Atonement, it is an emotionally conservative (solemn), but internally joyous occasion for those "Chosen Few" who worship Yahweh in both "Spirit and in Truth." It is a time for affliction (humility) and praising Yahweh for His 'Plan of Salvation.' But what is True Affliction?

Note: Affliction (Hebrew word "Anah" Strong's #6032")
means humility. Humility may take many forms (no one affliction is specifically mentioned as a requirement). Here are the scriptural examples and the ultimate desire of Yahweh's Holy Spirit on the subject of AFFLICTION: 1 Kings 21:25-29 25 (But there was none like Ahab, who did sell himself to do that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh, whom Jezebel his wife stirred up. 26 He did very abominably in following idols, according to all

that the Amorites did, whom Yahweh cast out before the children of Israel.) 27 It happened, when Ahab heard those words, that he tore his clothes, and put sackcloth on his flesh, and fasted, and lay in sackcloth, and went softly. 28 The word of Yahweh came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying, 29 See you how Ahab humbles himself before me? because he humbles himself before me, I will not bring the evil in his days; but in his son's days will I bring the evil on his house. Psalms 35:13 . . . . my clothing was sackcloth. I afflicted my soul with FASTING. . . . .

Note: So then, what is a "Fast?"
Matthew 4:2 And when he (Yahshua) had fasted [G3522] forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred [G3983]. G3521 (abstinence) "nesteia" from G3522; voluntary "fast" as on The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur). G3522 (fasted), "nesteuo" from G3523; "abstain from food." G3523 (fast), "nestis" or "not eating," "abstinent from food." G3983 (hungred), "peinao" or "famished;" from G3993. G3993 (starving), "penes" or "indigent" or "seeking subsistence." There is no mention of drink or even a hint at thirst, as when Messiah was on the stake (cross). Therefore, a lack of drink is not required in a "Fast," as long as the drink is water or has no nutritional or caloric value (no sugar, alcohol, juice, liquid food,
etc...)

Additionally, I have long found it interesting that Messiah "Fasted" (G3522) immediately after he was baptized (immersed) for "Remission of Sin;" Because other than Messiah's cricifixion, this act of baptism (followed immediately by fasting) is a supreme example to mankind that baptism by water is an anthropomorphism for becoming immersed into YHVH's Holy Spirit (as a new man or way of life as a seeker of righteousness). When Messiah voluntarily fasted immediately after his baptism, he set an example (another anthropomorphism) for his followers to deny "SELF" (repent of or reject SELF). Thus Messiah was telling us through his supreme example to become a "Seeker of Righteousness" and deny "Self." Personally, I believe that The Spiritual Seed of Abraham (Chosen Few) will possess this Spiritual quality when "The Atonement" actually occurs just prior to the "Sabbath Millennium" (symbolized by Rosh HaShannah, Yom Teruah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot). . . . continued

Isaiah 58:5-14
(true Affliction, true ministry, true sacrifice)

5 Is this the FAST that I have chosen? A day for a man to afflict his soul? Is it (true affliction) to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? Will you call this a FAST, and an acceptable day to Yahweh?

Note: Yahweh does not prefer a physical Fast or
Affliction, but a Spiritual one. Yahweh just uses physical examples to teach Spiritual Truth. However, if we do afflict our soul (living bodies) by means of physical affliction or fasting, as during "Yom Kippur," then it must be to teach Spiritual Truth OR as a result of Spiritual affliction. This is emphasized by the next verses.

CON'T 6 Is not this the fast (to deny "SELF") that I have chosen? to loose (remove) the bands of wickedness (the sin of "SELF"), to undo the heavy burdens (oppression of sin), and to let the oppressed (victims of sin) go free, and that you break (eliminate) every yoke (bondage of sin)? 7 Is it not to deal (selflessly give) your bread to the hungry, and that you bring the poor that are cast out to your house? when you see the naked, that you cover him; and that you hide not yourself from your own flesh (literally give the shirt off your own back)? 8 Then shall your light (when you can do these things)(Righteous Example) break forth as the morning, and your health shall spring forth speedily: and your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of Yahweh shall be your reward. 9 Then shall you call, and Yahweh shall answer; you shall cry, and He shall say, I am here. If you take away from the midst of yourself the yoke (of selfish sin), the putting forth of the finger (as an accuser), and speaking vanity (SELF-centerness); 10 And if you draw out your soul (living sacrifice or personal loss) to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul (at your own expense); then shall your light (Righteous Example) rise out of obscurity, and your darkness become as the noonday: 11 And Yahweh shall guide you continually (with His Holy Spirit or pneuma), and satisfy your soul in drought, and make fat your bones: and you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. 12 And they that shall be of you (follow you) shall build the old waste places: You shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called, "The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in." 13 If you turn away your foot during the sabbath from doing your (own) pleasure on my Holy Day; and call the Sabbath a delight, the Holy of Yahweh, honorable; and shall honor Him, not doing your

own ways (self-centeredness), nor finding your own pleasure (selfseeking), nor speaking your own words (vanity): 14 Then shall you delight yourself in Yahweh; and I will cause you all to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed you all with the heritage of Jacob (Israel or seed of Abraham) your father: for the mouth of Yahweh has spoken it (a done deal).

Leviticus 23:26-32
26 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 27 However on the tenth day of this seventh (sacred) month is the Day of Atonement: it shall be a Holy Convocation to you, and you shall afflict your souls; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to Yahweh.

Note: Offering made by fire doesn't necessarily mean to
cook physical food over a physical fire, as that was the physical parallel to the Spiritual Truth, which is to offer yourself as an offering made by fire to Yahweh by following in the Spiritual footsteps of Messiah Y'Shua.

Luke 3:16
16 John answered them all, "I indeed baptize you with water, but he (Messiah) comes who is mightier than I, the latchet of whose sandals I am not worthy to loosen. He will baptize you in the Holy Spirit and fire,

1 Corinthians 3:11-17
11 For no one can lay any other foundation than that which has been laid, which is Messiah Yahshua. 12 But if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay, or stubble; 13 each man's work will be revealed. For the Day will declare it, because it is revealed in fire; and the fire itself will test

what sort of work each man's work is. 14 If any man's work remains which he built on it, he will receive a reward. 15 If any man's work is burned, he will suffer loss, but he himself will be saved, but as through fire. 16 Don't you know that you are a temple of Yahweh, and that Yahweh's Spirit (Righteous mentality) lives in you? 17 If anyone destroys the temple of Yahweh, Yahweh will destroy him; for Yahweh's temple is holy, which you are.

Malachi 3:1-3
Behold, I send my messenger (Aggelos in Greek, and Malak in
Hebrew; Strongs #4397; a messenger, deputy, angel, teacher, priest, ambassador, king), and he (Messiah) will prepare the way before

me; and the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to his temple; and the messenger of the covenant (marriage supper/vow), whom you desire, behold, he comes!" says Yahweh of hosts. 2 "But who can endure the day of his coming? And who will stand when he appears? For he is like a refiner's fire, and like launderer's soap; 3 and he will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi (the chosen are priests or ministers; Exodus 19:5-6, Revelation 5:9-10), and refine them as gold and silver; and they shall offer to Yahweh offerings in righteousness.

28 You shall do no manner of work in that same day; for it is a Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before Yahweh your G-d. 29 For whatever soul it be who shall not be afflicted in that same day; he shall be cut off from his people. 30 Whatever soul it be who does any manner of work in that same day, that soul will I destroy from among his people. 31 You shall do no manner of work: it is a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. 32 It shall be to you a Sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even(ing), from even to even, shall you keep your Sabbath.

So what is the "End of the Matter?"
Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
13 This is the end of the matter. All has been heard. Fear G-d, and keep his commandments; for this is the whole duty of man. 14 For G-d will bring every work into judgment, with every hidden thing, whether it is good, or whether it is evil. Be Humble. Keep the Sabbaths Holy. Follow Messiah Yahshua's example. Offer yourself as a "Living Sacrifice." Offer yourself as an offering made by fire. Love the Creator, Yahweh, with all your heart, strength, and life. Love your neighbor as yourself.

The Holy Sabbaths
of the Sacred Seventh Month. Part Seven
by D. J. Love, Minister, TSN
updated 9-20-2002 refined 4-18-07

The Feast of Tabernacles
(Sukkot or Succoth)

and

The Last Great Day
(Judgement Day)

This message is not your standard Holy Days message. The Spiritually revealed concept of physical to Spiritual parallels are employed here. This message reveals prophetic, as well as, the personal meaning behind "The Feast of Temporary Dwellings (aka Feast of Tabernacles, Booths, Succoth, Sukkot, Fall Harvest, and Feast of Ingathering)." Sukkot ("The Feast of Temporary Dwellings") is the third of four special annual High Sabbaths that occur during the Sacred Seventh Month on Yahweh's Sacred Calendar. This Sabbath Day occurs on the first day of a seven day period, which is immediately followed by an eighth day (an additional day) which is, also, the Last Annual Sabbath on Yahweh's Sacred Calendar. This final High Sabbath is simply known as "The Last Great Day." The first and eighth days of Sukkot are solemn assemblies, but the period in between is a "Joyous" occasion for those who wear the "Mark of Yahweh" or "Shema," and just like "The Feast of Trumpets," and "The Day of Atonement" it is a prophetic foretaste of the events that are to occur in the latter days as recorded primarily in the Book of Revelation in chapters 20 - 22. Remember, all of Yahweh's Annual "High Sabbaths" are designed by Yahweh to teach those of us with "Ears to Hear" and "Eyes to See" about the True "Plan of Salvation." All annual High Sabbaths are physical examples or precursors of Spiritual Truths, and as such are to be used as Yahweh established them. To say they are no longer necessary is the same as saying they were never necessary. Don't be fooled! They serve Yahweh's purpose for those with "Eyes to See" and "Ears to Hear."

The Precursor to Spiritual Truth
(The Physical Example)

Leviticus 23:33-36,39-43.
33 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 34 Speak to the children of (Jacob) Israel (Abraham's physical and Spiritual Seed through Isaac and Jacob, not Ishmael), saying, On the fifteenth day of this seventh month is the "Feast of Booths" (Succoth or Sukkat) for seven days to Yahweh.

Note: There are two very strong Spiritual implications here
for those of us with eyes to see and ears to hear. The first is with the use of various tree branches, and second is with the Spiritual implication of "Temporary Dwellings," which I will soon reveal.

Note: Traditionally the Sukkah is a three sided hut, that is
open on one side. The Messiah was born in a Sukkah (temporary dwelling) during Sukkat (Succoth or Feast of Temporary Dwellings or Tabernacles).
(Strongs #5521, cukkah or Sukkah, a hut made of entwined tree branches or boughs).

35 On the first day shall be a Holy convocation: you shall do no

servile work. 36 Seven days you shall offer an offering made by fire to Yahweh: on the eighth day shall be a Holy convocation to you; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to Yahweh: it is a solemn assembly; you shall do no servile work.

Note: An Offering made by Fire, also, has a strong Spiritual
implication, as this offering was (and is) a physical parallel to the Spiritual Truth, which is to offer yourself as an offering

made by fire to Yahweh by following in the Spiritual footsteps of Messiah Yahshua (Luke 3:16, 1 Corinthians 3:11-17, Malachi 3:13). However, we should, also, maintain the physical symbolism! It is a Statute forever!

39 However, on the fifteenth day of the (Sacred) seventh month (precursor to the Sabbath Millennium), when you have gathered in (also called "Feast of Ingathering") the (First) fruits of the land, you shall

keep Yahweh's feast seven days: on the first day shall be a solemn rest, and on the eighth day shall be a solemn rest. 40 You shall take on the first day the fruit of Goodly Trees, branches of palm trees, and boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and you shall rejoice before Yahweh your G-d seven days.

Note: There is even greater symbolism on this subject in
Leviticus 23:40, as the fruit of goodly trees is a direct parallel of the "Tree of Life" in Revelation 22:2 of which each True Worshipper is a Spiritual Reflection (made in YHWH's Loving Spiritual Image). The True "Tree of Life" is none other than Yahweh Himself. Yahweh's True Worshippers are none other than a Spiritual reflection of YHWH's Spiritual image, therefore Yahweh's Chosen Few are represented as "Goodly Trees;" Goodly Fruit Bearing Trees! Just the same as the "Tree of Life," which is depicted as bearing twelve kinds of fruit, with leaves that heal nations.

Revelation 22:1-2
He shown me a river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of G-d and of the Lamb, 2 in the midst of its street. On this side of the river and on that was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruits, yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

Nehemiah 8:14-18
14 They found written in the law, how that Yahweh had

commanded by Moses, that the children of Israel should dwell in booths (Strongs #5521, cukkah, temporary dwellings) in the (Full Moon) feast of the seventh month; 15 and that they should publish and proclaim in all their cities, and in Jerusalem, saying, Go forth to the mountain, and get olive branches (Hebrew Believers), and branches of wild olive (Repentant Hebrew Believers), and myrtle (Gentile Believers) branches, and palm (Gentile Believers) branches, and branches of (various) thick trees (Gentile Believers), to make booths, as it is written.

Romans 11:16-27
16 If the First Fruit is Holy, so is the lump. If the root is

Holy, so are the branches. 17 But if some of the (olive) branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive, were grafted in among them, and became partaker with them of the root of the richness of the olive tree; 18 don't boast over the branches. But if you boast, it is not you who bear the root, but the root you. 19 You will say then, "Branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in." 20 True; by their unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by your faith. Don't be conceited, but fear; 21 for if G-d didn't spare the natural branches, neither will he spare you. 22 See then the goodness and severity of G-d. Toward those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness; otherwise you, also, will be cut off (Obviously "Once Saved / Grafted Always Saved / Grafted" is a lie). 23 They also, if they don't continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in, for Yahweh is able to graft them in again. 24 For if you were cut out of that which is by nature a wild olive tree, and were grafted contrary to (Selfish Human) nature into a good (selfless) olive tree, how much

more will these, which are the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree? 25 For I don't desire, brothers, to have you ignorant of this mystery, so that you won't be wise in your own conceits, that a hardening in part has happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in, 26 and so all Israel will be saved. Even as it is written, "There will come out of Zion the Deliverer, And he will turn away ungodliness from Jacob (Israel).
27 This

is my covenant to them, When I will take away their sins."
16 So the people went forth, and brought them, and made themselves booths (Temporary Dwellings), everyone on the roof

of his house, and in their courts, and in the courts of the house of G-d, and in the broad place of the water gate, and in the broad place of the gate of Ephraim. 17 All the assembly of those who were come again out of the captivity made booths (Sukkot), and lived in the booths (Sukkot); for since the days of Joshua, the son of Nun, to that day the children of Israel had not done so. There was very great gladness. 18 Also day by day, from the first day to the last day, he read in the book of the law of G-d. They kept the feast seven days; and on the eighth day was a solemn assembly, according to the ordinance. (Leviticus 23 continued) 41 You shall keep it a feast to Yahweh seven days in the year (annual): it is a statute forever throughout your generations; you shall keep it in the seventh (Sacred Sabbath) month. 42 You shall dwell in booths (Sukkahs) seven days; all who are homeborn in Israel shall dwell in booths (Sukkot or Sukkahs); 43 that your generations may know that I made the children of Israel to dwell in booths (temporary dwelling), when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am Yahweh your G-d.

"The Temporary Dwellings"
(Sukkahs)

So what are the Spiritual implications of "The Temporary Dwellings?" If you haven't already figured it out, it is simply this. All human beings exist in temporary dwellings (human flesh) all of their natural lives. Those temporary dwellings being the various physical appearances of the various human bodies (red and yellow, black and white). And while the physical bodies (flesh) of all human beings can be compared to the physical appearance of the various types of trees, not all human beings can be compared to "Goodly Trees." All Goodly Trees (True Worshippers; John 4:22-24) are the temporary dwelling places of Yahweh's Holy Spirit. Which is just another one of Yahweh's "Physical to Spiritual Parallels." Get used to it, YHVH speaks to us through "Physical to Spiritual Parallels" (allegories and anthropomorphisms) It is Yahweh's preferred method of reaching out to those of us with "Ears to Hear, and Eyes to See" (Romans 1:20).

Physical to Spiritual parallels or Anthropomorphisms

Romans 1:20-23
20 For the invisible (Spiritual) things of Him (YHVH) since the creation of the world are clearly seen (to those with "Eyes to See"), being perceived through the (physical) things that are made, even His everlasting power and divinity; that they (unbelievers/idolators) may be

without excuse, 21 Because, knowing G-d, they didn't glorify him as (a Spiritual) G-d, neither gave thanks, but became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless heart was darkened.

Note: They wrongly perceived the physical examples of
Spiritual Truths to be gods or legalities, when by Righteous Design they were actually "Physical to Spiritual Parallels" or truths. Therefore they say that the Ten Commandments were nailed on the cross, and that Jesus and the Holy Spirit are part

of a Trinity; when Yahweh clearly states that he is ONE (a lone G-d). Those that do not keep Yahweh's Holy Sabbaths Holy will never truly understand physical to Spiritual Parallels.

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 and traded the glory of the incorruptible (Spiritual) G-d (Yahweh) for the (physical) likeness of an (a physical) image (human and other idols) of (physically) corruptible man (saints, gods, Jesus, etc...), and of (physical) birds, and four-footed (physical) animals, and (physically) creeping

things.

"The Prophetic Implications"
Concerning "The Plan of Salvation" in the "Latter Days"

Revelation 20:4-6 (The Sabbath Millennium begins)
4 I saw thrones, and they (the Chosen Few or First Fruits) sat on them, and judgment was given to them (power to judge). I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Messiah Yahshua, and for the word of G-d, and such as didn't worship the beast nor his image, and didn't receive the mark on their forehead and on their hand. They lived (after the First Resurrection), and reigned with Messiah one thousand years (Sabbath Millennium or during the Seventh 1000 years after Adam & Eve). 5 The rest of the dead didn't live until the (seventh) thousand (Sabbath Millennium) years were finished. This is the first resurrection (prior to the Sabbath Millennium). 6 Blessed and Holy is he (any of the Chosen Few) who has part in the first resurrection. Over these (Chosen Few), the second death has no power, but they will be priests of G-d and of Messiah, and will reign with him one thousand (Sabbath Millennium) years.

Matthew 5:1-14 (The Chosen Few)
Seeing the multitudes, he went up onto a mountain. When he had sat down, his disciples came to him. 2 He opened his mouth and taught them, saying, 3 "Blessed are the poor in spirit (Chosen Few), for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven (on Earth during the Sabbath Millennium). 4 "Blessed are those (Chosen Few) who mourn, for they shall be comforted (by Yahweh). 5 "Blessed are the humble (Chosen Few), for they shall inherit (the Kingdom of Yahweh, which is presently in heaven, but is coming to) The Earth. 6 "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness (Chosen Few), for they shall be filled (be righteous). 7 "Blessed are the merciful (Chosen Few), for they shall obtain (Yahweh's) mercy. 8 "Blessed are the pure in heart (Chosen Few), for they shall see G-d (Yahweh). 9 "Blessed are the peacemakers (Chosen Few), for they shall be called sons of G-d (Yahweh). 10 "Blessed are those who have been persecuted for righteousness' sake (Chosen Few), for theirs is the Kingdom (New Jerusalem) of Heaven (on Earth during the Sabbath Millennium). 11 "Blessed are you when people reproach you, persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12 "Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward (presently located) in heaven. For that is how they persecuted the prophets who were before you. 13 You are the salt of The Earth (the world), but if the salt has lost its flavor, what will it be salted with? It is then good for nothing, but to be cast out and trodden under the feet of men. 14 You are the light of the world (the Earth). A city (New Jerusalem) set on a hill can't be hid.

Revelation 21:1-11 (The Kingdom of Yahweh on Earth)
I saw a new heaven (atmosphere) and a new earth: for the first heaven (atmosphere) and the first earth have passed away, and the (first and only) sea is no more. 2 I saw the Holy City, New Jerusalem (Kingdom of Yahweh), coming down out of heaven (the sky) from Yahweh, made ready as a bride

adorned for her husband.

Note: The New Jerusalem (the

light

of the world) OR Kingdom

of Yahweh is not just a physical city as depicted in symbolism, but those True Worshippers of Yahweh, who are of "Like Mind" (Holy Spirit) that inhabit the New Earth. Those that did not break their covenant (marriage vows) with Yahweh, because of their obedience through love for Yahweh and His righteousness (to Yahweh's COMMANDMENTS of LOVE). This is not to say they were people perfected in righteousness prior to the First Resurrection, but people who did hunger and thirst for righteousness (Matthew 5:6). Now they are filled!

3 I heard a loud voice out of heaven saying, "Behold, G-d's tabernacle (tent) is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they

will be his people, and G-d himself will be with them as their G-d. 4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes (Matthew 5:4). Death will be no more; neither will there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain, any more. The first things have passed away (Atmosphere, Earth, Sea or gas, solid, liquid). 5 He (Yahweh) who sits on the throne said, "Behold, I make all things new." He said, "Write, for these words are faithful and true." 6 He said to me, "It is done! (a done deal) I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give freely to him who is thirsty (for Righteousness) from the spring of the water of life.

Note: Yahweh does NOT say, "He who is already filled with

righteousness (perfection)," but he who is thirsty (Matthew 5:6).

7 He who overcomes (Matthew 10:22 ; "endures to the end"), I will give him these things. I will be his G-d, and he will be my son (one of the First Fruits). 8 But for the cowardly, unbelieving, sinners, abominable, murderers,

sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their part is in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur (lava, magma), which is the second death (a physical death for physical people)." 9 One of the seven messengers (Aggelos) who had the seven bowls, who were laden with the seven last plagues came, and he spoke with me, saying, "Come here. I will show you the wife, the Lamb's bride." 10 He carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain (a city on a hill cannot be hid), and shown me the Holy City, (New) Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven (the sky) from Yahweh, 11 having the glory of G-d. Her light was like a most precious stone, as if it was (similar to) a jasper stone, clear as crystal;

Revelation 22:7-14 (The Messenger speaks for Yahweh)
7 "Behold, I (Yahweh, giver of the message) come quickly. Blessed is

he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book."

Note: Sometimes the Messenger (Aggelos) speaks "The
Message" for Yahweh and sometimes he speaks righteous words according to the Holy Spirit of Yahweh. However, the messenger is NOT Yahweh.
8 Now I, John, am the one who heard (the message) and saw these

things. When I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the messenger (Aggelos) who shown me these things. 9 He (the messenger) said to me, "See you don't do it! I (the messenger) am a fellow bondservant (not Yahweh) with you and with your brothers, the prophets, and with those who keep the words of this

book. Worship G-d" (not me). 10 He (the messenger) said to me, "Don't seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand. 11 He who acts unjustly, let him act unjustly still. He who is filthy, let him be filthy still. He who is righteous, let him do righteousness still. He who is Holy, let him be Holy still." 12 "Behold, I (Yahweh, not messenger) come quickly. My reward is with me, to repay to each man according to his work. 13 I (Yahweh, giver of the message) am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. 14 Blessed are those who do His (Yahweh's) commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter in by the gates into the city (New Jerusalem).

Isaiah 65:8-25 (The Sabbath Millennium on Earth)
8 Thus says Yahweh, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one

says, Don't destroy it, for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants' sake, that I may not destroy them all. 9 I will bring forth a (Spiritual) seed out of Jacob (Israel), and out of Judah an inheritor (The Messiah) of my mountains; and My chosen (Few) shall inherit it, and my servants (True Worshippers) shall dwell there (on Earth). 10 Sharon (the place) shall be a fold of flocks, and the valley of Achor a place for herds to lie down in, for my people (The First Fruits) who have sought me. 11 But you who forsake Yahweh, who forget my Holy mountain (New Jerusalem), who prepare a table for Fortune, and who fill up mingled wine to Destiny; 12 I will destine you to the sword, and you shall all bow down to the slaughter; because when I called, you did not answer; when I spoke, you did not hear; but you did that which was evil in my eyes, and chose that in which I didn't delight. 13 Therefore thus says the L_rd Yahweh, Behold, My servants shall eat, but you shall be hungry; behold, My servants shall drink, but you shall be thirsty; behold, My servants shall rejoice, but you shall be put to shame; 14 behold, My servants shall sing for joy of heart, but you shall cry

for sorrow of heart, and shall wail for vexation of spirit. 15 You shall leave your name for a curse to My chosen (Few); and the L_rd Yahweh will kill you; and he will call His servants by another name: 16 so that he who blesses himself in the earth shall bless himself in the G-d of truth; and he who swears in the earth shall swear by the G-d of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from my eyes. 17 For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former things shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. 18 But be you glad and rejoice forever in that which I create; for, behold, I create (New) Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. 19 I will rejoice in (New) Jerusalem, and joy in my people; and there shall be heard in her no more the voice of weeping and the voice of crying. 20 There shall be no more there an infant of days, nor an old man who has not filled his days; for the child shall die one hundred years old, and the sinner being one hundred years old shall be accursed (Judged Guilty).

Note: This 100 year period at the "End of The Sabbath
Millennium" is symbolized by "The Last Great Day" of Sukkot.

21 They shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant

vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. 22 They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree shall be the days of My people, and My chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands. 23 They shall not labor in vain, nor bring forth for calamity; for they are the seed of the blessed of Yahweh, and their offspring with them. 24 It shall happen that, before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. 25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the ox; and dust shall be the serpent's food. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my Holy mountain (New Jerusalem), says Yahweh.

The Great White Throne Judgement Day
The Second Resurrection to physical life and The Second Physical Death

Revelation 20:7-15
7 And after the thousand years (Sabbath Millennium), Satan (Azazel) will be freed out of his prison (The Wilderness or abyss), 8 and will come forth to deceive the nations which are in the four

corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to the war; the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 9 They went up over the breadth of the earth, and surrounded the camp of the saints, and the beloved city (New Jerusalem the light of the world). Fire came down out of heaven (the Sky), and devoured them. 10 The devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur (lava or magma), where are also the beast and the false prophet. They (only) will be tormented day and night forever and ever. 11 I saw a Great White Throne, and him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. There was found no place for them. 12 I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne. Books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The (Spiritually) dead were judged out of the things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it. Death and Hades (the grave) gave up the dead who were in them. They were judged, each one according to his works. 14 Death and Hades (The Grave) were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire (lava or magma).

15 If anyone was not found written in the book of life, he was cast

into the lake of fire.

So How Do We Celebrate Sukkot?
Only the first day and the last day (8th day) are commanded convocations (assemblies). The rest of the time should be spent in an early morning and evening prayer AND festivities. Many members use this time for their family vacation. They give gifts (not exchange gifts), go out to eat, purchase much needed items for the family, etc. . . The first and last days should be treated like THE SABBATH DAYS that they are. There should always be a parallel analogy being taught and remembered concerning The Days of All of The Feast(s) (and other Annual Sabbaths) and the future time that they symbolize. The Feast of Tabernacles symbolizes The Sabbath Millennium wherein there is only love and caring, and evil has been removed from the Earth (temporarily). Therefore, make it fun, but keep it righteous and good.

Remember The Sabbath Day and Keep it Holy!
