"Light: The Festivals Encoded, Infallible Proof of the Creator?"


John,

I haven't posted in a while. I am friend's with David McLeod of The Rapture
Website - www.rapture.ws.

I see your recent articles on the festivals. I lean toward the idea that the
10 day of Nisan from the Lord's time perspective of working with us on earth
occured with the fall of Adam (~4000 bc), and that 4 days later (1000 year
day) was the Passover with Jesus crucification. Thus we are entering the
Firstfruits era in the 1000 year Millenium (16th day).  Just as Unleavened
bread was an extended feast on days 15 and 21 of Nisan, I would see
Tabernacles being like this, and not divided into 2 distinct feasts, though
the 8th day does have special significance.

I submit an article I wrote regarding the festival pattern, and what I
considered infalliable proof that the God the Bible is the creator of light
and the universe.

God bless,

-David

Thanks, David. Interesting. Undoubtedly, nature and Scripture are replete with examples of the number 7: 7 musical notes, 7 rainbow colors, 7 days in a week, 7 Spirits of the Lord, 7 branches of the candlestick, 7 candlesticks, 7 seals, 7 trumpets, 7 vials. The Holy Spirit is expressly the Seven Spirits of the Lord and the Seven Eyes of the Lord. I believe there is an intimate relationship between 7 and 8. Is not eight the sum of seven and one?

Please read my post today.

LIGHT OF HIS GLORY: THE PATTERN OF THE 7 FEASTS OF THE CREATOR

What I'd like to share here is something I consider a very special gift
revelation from the Lord based on the pattern of the Festivals (Lev 23).
Creation and the Lord's coming are associated with Light.

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.  And God called the
light Day, and the darkness he called Night.  And the evening and the
morning were the first day (Gen 1:4-5)

The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell
in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. (Isa
9:2)

And what is the make-up of light?  The scientific definition would say
something to the effect it is frequencies of atomic radiation in the visible
portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, other portions being x-rays, cosmic
rays, ultraviolet light, etc.

The principle colors of light are 7 in number, as seen in the rainbow.  They
are ordered from larger wavelength to smaller wavelength.  The smaller
wavelengths have a higher frequency/vibration.  Students the Bible know the
7 sacred festivals of the Lord describe the Christian growth and
sanctification experience starting with Passover.  The shortening of
wavelengths bespeak the narrowing path (Matt 7:13).

Yes, encoded in His LIGHT and LIFE is the Way to Truth.  It is when one has
experienced and lived the meaning behind the 7 feasts that it can be said he
walks in WHITE with the Lord.  White light is a composite of the colors.

COLOR FESTIVAL

RED Passover
ORANGE    Unleaved Bread (is not whole wheat bread orange-colored?)
YELLOW    Firstfruits: yellow is a color of first ripening
GREEN      Pentecost (green bespeaks the great harvest of men on the ripe
fields of the earth)
BLUE*      Trumpets - blue as "activator color" in
               sounding, an activator agent.  Sound travels the medium of
the air (blue sky).
INDIGO*   Day of Atonement
VIOLET*  Tabernacles

* The instructions for the Tabernacle contained use of skins of blue, purple
and scarlet for use in tabernacle curtains and the high priest's ephod,
girdle, breastplate, robe and lace. (Ex 26:1, Ex 28)

The exact symbolism of the latler 3 colors is somewhat unclear to me, but
link to the hues associated with high priesthood and royalty, the highest
phases of sanctification in Him.

There is a lot of meaning that could be found in this, and I have meditated
upon and been given to know a a few of the details.   The 3 primary colors
of red, green and blue bespeak the 3 yearly feasts periods ordained by the
Lord (Ex 24:14).  Then there is the promise and covenant associated with the
rainbow (Gen 9:11-12).  In Revelation, John the beloved saw a rainbow amid
the throne room (Ex 4:3).  After the flood, the Lord promised He would not
blot out the people of the earth again, but rather, has provided a way into
Life through Jesus Christ and the meaning and experiences associated with
the 7 feasts, by which we can "wash our robes" white in the blood of the
Lamb.

Perhaps the greatest implication here is the fact that LIGHT is present
throughout the expanse of the UNIVERSE.  All stars, galaxies and celestial
bodies emit LIGHT that spans LIGHT YEARS (the distance light, which has a
velocity of 186,000 miles per second**, travels through space in the
universe).  This is amazing and awesome and scientists with their best
efforts cannot fully measure or fathom the expanse of His Glory in trying
figure out the size of the universe.  This information about LIGHT and the
FACT that it encodes the FESTIVAL PATTERN of El Shaddai (God Almighty) of
the Bible, I believe constitutes an INFALLIBLE PROOF of the Creator. Thank
you Lord for your grace in providing such truth that we may KNOW you as the
Son of God and Our Redeemer!

And so, we are here upon the NEW DAY and His Light, the Millenium, when
knowledge of the Lord shall fill the earth with the Light of His Glory (Isa
11:9).

Let us strive to be overcomers and be found worthy to walk in white with
Him. (Rev 3:5,  7:13-14)
 

**300,000 kilometers per sec in the metric system. 3 = the number of the
Word/His Name, which is encoded in LIGHT!  The speed of light has been
thought to be constant throughout the universe.
