JUST A THEORY
Will the Fall Feast be fulfilled in reverse?
Yacov Rambsel was the first to discover that counting every 20th letter in Isaiah 53:10 in Hebrew spells "Yeshua shmi" which means "Yeshua is my name!". In case you didn't already know, in Hebrew, the name Jesus is Yeshua or Joshua. Not only is the phrase "Jesus is my name" encoded in this amazing scripture, but it is encoded both backwards and forwards at a 20 letter interval, from the same starting point. Coincidence? Hardly.
1 Corinthians 13:12 - For now we see through a glass (mirror), darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
2 Corinthians 3:18 - But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass (mirror) the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
In the times of Jesus there were no mirrors as we have them today, they used l a brass plate, or perhaps a dark piece of glass to view their reflection.
Is it possible that the Fall Feast will be fulfilled in reverse?
1) HOSHANA RABBAH (21st day of Tishri)
The seventh day of the Jewish holiday of SUKKOT, 21st day of TISHRI, is known as Hoshana Rabbah (Great Hoshana). Hoshana Rabbah is known as the day of the final sealing of judgment. During the festival of SUKKOT the world is judged for water (as in the days of Noah the earth was judged with water). The seventh day of the festival is the final sealing and since human life depends on water, Hoshana Rabbah is somewhat similar to YOM KIPPUR.
"Hoshana" (הושענא) is a Hebrew word meaning "please save" or "save now". Overall, it seems that, "Hosanna," is a cry for salvation, while at the same time is a declaration of praise.
2) SUKKOT Tishri 15, the fifth day after Yum kippur
On the fifteenth day of this seventh month is the Festival of Sukkot, seven days for the LORD. Leviticus 23:34
The Festival of Sukkot which is also known as Feast of Tabernacles begins on Tishri 15, the fifth day after Yum kippur. It is quite a transition, from one of the most solemn holidays in our year to one of the most joyous. Sukkot is so joyful that it is commonly referred to in Jewish prayer and literature as Z'man Simchateinu , the Season of our Rejoicing.
Sukkot is the last of the Shalosh R'galim (three pilgrimage festivals). Like Passover and Shavu'ot, Sukkot has a dual significance: historical and agricultural. Historically, Sukkot commemorates the forty-year period during which the children of Israel were wandering in the desert, living in temporary shelters. Agriculturally, Sukkot is a harvest festival and is sometimes referred to as Chag Ha-Asif, the Festival of Ingathering.
You will dwell in booths for seven days; all natives of Israel shall dwell in booths. -Leviticus 23:42
3) YOM KIPPUR on the 10 day of Tishri
...In the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you shall afflict your souls, and you shall not do any work ... For on that day he shall provide atonement for you to cleanse you from all your sins before the Lord. Leviticus 16:29-30
Yom Kippur is probably the most important holiday of the Jewish year. Many Jews who do not observe any other Jewish custom will refrain from work, fast and/or attend synagogue services on this day. Yom Kippur occurs on the 10th day of Tishri.
The name "Yom Kippur" means "Day of Atonement," and that pretty much explains what the holiday is. It is a day set aside to "afflict the soul," to atone for the sins of the past year. In the Days of Awe mentioned the "books" in which God inscribes all of our names. On Yom Kippur, the judgment entered in these books is sealed. This day is, essentially, your last appeal, your last chance to change the judgment, to demonstrate your repentance and make amends.
Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the year -- the day on which we are closest to GOD and to the quintessential core of our own souls. It is the "Day of Atonement" -- "For on this day He will forgive you, to purify you, that you be cleansed from all your sins before GOD" (Leviticus 16:30).
4) DAYS OF AWE
The ten days starting with Yom Teruah and ending with Yom Kippur are known as the Days of Awe (Yamim Noraim) or the Days of Repentance. This is a time for serious introspection, a time to consider the sins of the previous year and repent before Yom Kippur.
5) Yom Teruah" the Day of Trumpets
...In the seventh month, on the first of the month, there shall be a sabbath for you, a remembrance with shofar blasts, a holy convocation. -Leviticus 16:24
"Feast of Yom Teruah" - the Day of Trumpets (better know to some on the secular calendar as Rosh Hashanah) occurs on the first and second days of Tishri. The Bible refers to this holiday as Yom Ha-Zikkaron (the day of remembrance) or the day of the sounding of the shofar. The holiday is instituted in Leviticus 23:24-25.
On Tishrei 1 -- the sixth day of creation -- "GOD said: 'Let us make Man in Our image, after Our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth...'" (Genesis 1:26). "GOD formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul" (ibid., 2:7). "And G-d took the man and placed him in the Garden of Eden, to work it and to keep it" (2:15). "And GOD said: 'It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helpmeet opposite him' ... GOD caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; and He took one of his sides, and closed up the flesh in its place. And G-d built the side which He had taken from the man into a woman, and brought her to the man. And the man said: 'This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.' Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother, and cleaves to his wife; and they become one flesh" (2:18-24).
On the very day he was created, man committed the first sin of history, transgressing the divine commandment not to eat from the "Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil." Adam and Eve were banished from the Garden, and mankind became subject to death, labor and moral confusion. But on that day the first man and woman also repented their sin, introducing the concept and opportunities of teshuvah ("return") into the human experience.
On the 1st of Tishrei, on the 307th day of the Great Flood, Noach dispatched a dove from the ark, for the third time (see "On This Date" for Elul 17 and Elul 23). When the dove did not return, Noah knew that the Flood's waters had completely drained from the earth. On that day, Noah removed the roof of the ark; but Noah and his family, and all the animals, remained in the ark for another 57 days -- until the 27th of Cheshvan -- when the suface of the earth was completely dry and GOD commanded them to leave the ark and resettle and reppopulate the earth.
Note - this has been going around in my head for about a week (as of 9/27/2009). I have no scripture to back this up yet so bare with me. If anyone has any ideas please contact me at [email protected]
