Yom Kippur speculation
After experiencing an unexpectedly quiet Rosh Hashanah, I started to contemplate what the next "watch date" might be. Naturally, the next "appointed time" will be 10 days hence on Yom Kippur. And I started to ask, why is this holiest of holy days, 10 days after the anniversary of the birth of Adam, and subsequently Yeshua? These holy days mark a significant act of God in the past, are rehearsed in the present, and will be fulfilled in the future. What occurred 10 days after a Rosh Hashanah that would be considered even greater than Passover? Traditionally it is believed that this is when Moses returned with a second set of the 10 Commandments and the children of Israel received atonement for their sin of the golden calf. This may be true but it is difficult for me to believe that a repeat performance would be rated higher than the initial.
Then the Holy Spirit started to show me that the first Yom Kippur most likely occurred in the Garden of Eden. I present this for discernment and comments.
On the sixth day God created Adam and Eve. This was man's first day and the first Rosh Hashanah. On man's second day, God rested. One Sabbath of days later would be man's ninth day. I believe that the 10th day from the first Rosh Hashanah was Genesis 3:8 when they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid themselves. The first Yom Kippur was Genesis 3:21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them. This was the first atonement, the shedding of blood of an innocent lamb for the sins of man. This sacrifice will be repeated and perverted throughout the generations of man until that final judgment day approved by the Father.
That then begs the question as to whether the Feast of Tabernacle's fits into this pattern, though again we know that this is also a reminder of when the children of Israel were in the wilderness. That brings us to Genesis 3:23- 24 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; ... .
Adam and Eve were in the middle (midst) of the garden, and I'm sure that a four or five-day journey on foot would be reasonable to consider. That would put them outside of their promised land at the time of the beginning of Tabernacle's.
The Fall Feasts can be a picture of the fall of man. The spring feasts show the process of bringing man out of Egypt (the world). The Fall feasts show the final process of removing the world (Egypt) from the man. And Yeshua is the reason for both of these seasons.
