sacred feasts point to Pentecost, this year."
This is how the fulfillment of the seven sacred feasts
of Israel are now playing out. These are the seven in our
It seems that we must at least considered an eighth, which is a
“replacement for the seventh? I really think so, because of
the history and attitude of the Jews toward the eighth,
Hanukkah. From 166 B. C. and on, slowly but surely, the Jews
could not tell the difference between Tabernacles and
Hanukkah. By the time of Jesus birth, they favored Hanukkah
much more than Tabernacles. As a matter of fact, many of the
attendees at Tabernacles would stay the sixty days until Hanukkah
rather than travel back to their homes. I was intrigued by
this so I acquired a book titled “The Feasts of Israel” in which a
Jewish rabbi explained why the above became so. In my study
of the two feasts, Tabernacles compared to Hanukkah, however,
among other differences, there is at least ONE major
difference. First, I need to relist the feasts and then here
is my take on that difference.
The revised list:
not to be fulfilled
Here is what I am proposing and what I now believe. Since
the Holy Spirit came on Pentecost 32, He will stay until Pentecost
2012. The total fulfillment of Pentecost will take 1,980
solar years to fulfill and will consummate May 26/27. The
remaining feasts will be fulfilled AFTER the great tribulation has
done what God has predetermined that it will do, and one of those
things is to awaken Israel and have her return and claim her land.
So what about the remaining feasts? Trumpets is Jewish New
Year. Atonement follows that by ten days. But O my, the last
feast, Tabernacles, and especially the last day, day seven, of
Tabernacles, which in practice saw the booths that had been
constructed before the first day, torn down has a real message in
it. The booth represented their bodies which would be
dissolved at the rapture. It saw the worshipers gather
behind twenty four concourses of priests having silver trumpets
and while they blew them, the worshippers followed them across the
Court of the Gentiles to the great Eastern Gate of the
Temple. Twenty five men opened the great gates and the
marchers went through the Gate into the Valley of Kidron, and from
thence, to their homes. THIS WAS AN O. T. PICTURE OF THE
RAPTURE. I believe that it would have occurred for Israel,
had they not rejected their Messiah. I believe that God,
knowing that they would do so, gave them a “replacement feast”
called Hanukkah, which had elements of Tabernacles in it but NOT
RAPTURE PICTURE. Thus when God said that He was weary of
their feasts and new moons because with their lips they were close
to Him, but with their hearts they were far away, He set up the
establishment of Hanukkah, a lesser Tabernacles 198 years before
Christ would die on the cross. He then sent His Son, Jesus
Christ as a human and fulfilled the first four of the sacred
feasts, which then did away with the need for them forever.
On the fourth feast, Pentecost, He breathed the Holy Spirit into
the 3,000 saved people in Jerusalem and the Church was born.
This established the Age of Grace, or the Church Age.
Pentecost has been “frozen in time” ever since.
There therefore only now remains the fulfillment of the last three
sacred feasts plus the eighth, Hanukkah. In the timeline set
up by the tetrads of eclipses and begun October 29, 2008, the end
of that period will be December 7, 2015. That is the feast
of Hanukkah, the eighth feast, the replacement for
Tabernacles. Do you see? This means that the last FOUR
feasts have their fulfillment when Jesus returns as King of Kings,
and Lord of Lords. That is what I believe.
Thus, we see one major point on the Feast of Trumpets, 2015, the
next point on the Feast of Atonement 2015, but NO point of what
would be the Feast of Tabernacles. Instead the end point is
the Feast of Hanukkah, 2015, the possible replacement for
Tabernacles. Instead of the rapture, their deliverance is to
be the Kingdom Age. And as Mathman has pointed out, the 7th
day of Hanukkah may complete the crowning of Messiah as King of
The work of Brother Ron Reese whose website
tells the story of how his work came about. Mathman, a
frequent poster on 5 doves also has a great handle on the
timing. But most have missed the important fact that the
Holy Spirit came on Pentecost 32 and apparently will hold the
feast of Pentecost in suspension for 1,980 years before leaving
and thereby taking the Church with Him this very Pentecost.
This feast has lasted without interruption for 1,980 years, it
seems. If this is so, then the rapture will be on Pentecost,
Glory to God, His Son, and the Holy Spirit forever and forever.
