The Moedim Paradigm and Holy Days of the Torah

The Moedim Paradigm

ONE SACRIFICE FOR ALL, PDI
ONE SACRIFICE FOR ALL, PDI
What exactly is the Moedim Paradigm? That is the question that I have often asked myself for almost two decades, long after assembling the alphanumerical template wherewith it could be visualized. From the beginning to the end of Scriptures- Genesis through Revelation– everything that I was led by the Holy Spirit to comprehend fits tenably within the twenty-two Hebrew letters of this panoramic time structure. From obscure enigmas in biblical psalms and proverbs to messianic parables, and back to the sacred feasts, all things have their place within the overarching template. And so I thought about the paradigm as the DNA instructions for assembling the Bible and perhaps as the hidden skeleton behind the body of Scripture, but no matter what sort of analogies I could think up, I was left with the same nagging question: ‘What is the Moedim Paradigm, and why would a universal template be designed by the Creator in the way this one is?’

Sadly, I still do not have an adequate answer for all readers, for even now I sense that there are many more connections that I have yet to discern and contemplate. My exegetical plate is full with the works set before me, with many parables and correlations to explain via timely clues in the Bible and its supporting spiritual symbolism.

Encouraging for me, however, is the fact that this millennial foundation and framework of Scripture is now known, with all of its necessary, supporting beams of what could be called the Lord YHVH’s Temple of Time, professing the historical works of the Messiah down through the ages. It seems that all kinds of new exegetical works are thus needed for beautifying this biblical House of Houses, as a sort of “theory of everything,” and it is prophesied that a chosen generation would come at the end of the age to glorify God’s works. As for my part, I am grateful that believers who truly seek understanding can now comprehend much greater meanings behind the sacrificial feasts/moedim of Torah- what we Christian believers commonly call the “Law of Moses.”

If I had to answer to what exactly the Moedim Paradigm is, the best answer that I could offer is that it reveals God’s biblical truths on time for believers at the end of this age to battle His spiritual enemies- for the culture war here on Earth. The more we learn and comprehend the mysteries of God, and how all of nature and history professes His works, the more equipped we are to stand with sound reasoning against those who have made it their missions in life to deny Him and the reliability of Scripture.

When some Westerners think of which monsters currently pose the greatest threat to the civilized world, they think of the butchering hordes of Islamic fascism, and with good historical reasons to do so, such as the slaughter of over one million Armenian Christians by Turks of the destroyed Ottoman Empire. Some people discern a horrific future for mankind because of the parasitic plight of the Islamic death cult into modern nations of the world. But when I think of the greatest evils facing this generation, I think first of blaspheming university professors and how these antitheists in liberal academia have intellectually beheaded generations of admiring youth, shredding at the fabric of all the good things of our Christian heritage.
.
Hence, I know that the children of the False Prophet are a world threat, for their practice of beheading the elect was prophesied for the Apocalypse long before Mohammad arose to slaughter caravans of trade with “the sword of Islam.” Muslim fanatics, however, can only destroy the bodies of the faithful, not the souls of whole nations as do the secular humanists in academia and their activists among us, serving as teachers and professors. 
Time has long served as an advantageous subject for secular blasphemers in their culture war against Bible-believers, so demonstrating the fact that God has done His works with appointed times that testify to Him is a personal delight for me. Hearts and minds must be transformed with higher reasoning in order for goodness and justice to prevail, whereas the most influential universities of our day pour their poison into young minds. Evil is celebrated as good, and good is made evil, all for advancing their anti-Christian ideology, socially fascist activism, and sour, atheistic worldview.
Time is God’s last and greatest witness before the arrival of Messiah, and God will utilize it to make mockery of His many enemies. It is the whetting of the Sword of the Spirit: the Word. Time is for polishing His revelations, and I truly believe that people need only to study His template and learn of His appointed times in order to comprehend how sharp Lord YHVH’s Sword actually is- how orderly and omniscient He is in His works throughout history.

Those who kill God’s people by the sword will be slain by the sword of His vengeance, and those who slay His people by their sharp words will meet the sword of His Word. We come like mighty battleships over the waters of the Word, and God’s enemies will altogether be abased, from the heights of intellectual elitism to the lows of Islamic terrorism and fascism.

Let them- secular progressives and Muslims- unite if so need it be that they make the only true God and Creator their common enemy, but the Beast and the False Prophet (the iron and the clay union in Daniel), and all His enemies, will be slain together at the coming of Messiah.

“Now see that I, even I, am He, and there is no god besides Me; I kill and I make alive; I wound and I heal; nor is there any who can deliver from My hand. For I raise My hand to heaven, and say, ‘As I live forever, if I whet My glistening sword, and My hand takes hold on judgment, I will render vengeance to My enemies, and repay those who hate Me. I will make My arrows drunk with blood, and My sword shall devour flesh, with the blood of the slain and the captives, from the heads of the leaders of the enemy.’” Rejoice, O Gentiles with His people [and let all the messengers worship Him]; for He will avenge the blood of His servants [martyrs], and render vengeance to His adversaries; He will provide atonement for His land and His people [Israel]. (Deut. 32:39-43) NKJV; intrpl. mine

The Spirit once carried me away in a vision to just outside of a great university building. It was on a bright and sunny day, and college students walked about and sat on the grass, all busy with their own things. In the midst of them was a wooden closet standing untouched on their main walkway- completely ignored as they chatted among each other and moseyed about. And so I opened it and found that it had several enigmatic books inside.
_
As I was thinking to borrow a few of the books, one in particular caught my eye: the Book of Life. I did not look into the volume of the book, but I did open its cover to find a Table of Contents. There, I saw that it consisted of 500 pages and rendered a key for unlocking all the Divine parables and riddles within its chapters, and that key is 1 equals 1,000.
†   
Upon awakening, I had no self-delusion of having seen the actual Book of Life; rather, a message was discerned: While the students went about gaining all sorts of secular knowledge, the key of God’s creative works has remained almost entirely ignored. Perhaps the closet did not fit on the campus grounds- like an old-fashioned antique. Perhaps the students were too tuned into today’s pop culture and too busy becoming idols in their own minds, with too many songs and movies leaving no space within their hearts for biblical things. Perhaps some of the youth were but respectfully refraining from investigating something that they did not believe belonged to them, nor concerned them, no matter how peculiarly it stood out. Perhaps their indifference was due to their religious leaders or spiritual advisors who seek to appear wise, mystical, holy, and even omniscient in theological knowledge, although lacking true biblical insight. Perhaps the closet and its books belonged inside the school where they might be heeded, and the heads of the Ivy League university were most at fault for forsaking the school’s founders and Judeo-Christian foundation. For whatever reason I might speculate, something containing the priceless contents of God’s creative work was not being looked into; instead, it was left unexplored and exposed to natural elements in Western academia.
Ultimately, it matters not what I think of this evil generation and why they ignore God’s biblical works, because the will of God surpasses my limited insight, and His Holy Spirit moves like the wind upon anyone as He so pleases. If God is determined to bring forth a generation of jewels, even some out of the politically correct children of vanity and wicked liberal activism, then it will indeed be done.
_
As for me, I can only revert to the original teachings of the patriarchs and matriarchs of our faith and deliver truths that are currently considered archaic, boring, and irrelevant to most youths of today’s generation- back to the Law of Moses and the prophets, to share mysteries with correlations to nature and spiritual reasoning. As this key of time was given to me from within the book, so, too, must I deliver it to others.

In this article readers will learn the mystery of the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet and how all of God’s moedim feasts fit within a timely framework of biblical history. While it is not possible in this limited article to explain all the symbolism behind the priestly ordinances covered in the latter four of the five books of Torah (first books of the Old Testament), it is possible to briefly cover each feast with its holy day(s) to explain their basic messianic symbolism and how they each fit within the millennial timeframe of the greater template. Hopefully, an exegetical balance can herein be achieved, wherewith biblical scholars can learn alongside those who are only faintly familiar with the ancient ordinances of the Israelites (a.k.a. Habiru people).

What we will not seek to make plain in this article are Jewish and Christian feasts and holidays that came after Torah, such as Hanukah and Christmas, which are more familiar to most people but irrelevant in expounding upon the holy days that where initially commanded by God Himself. The idea is not to cover all religious holidays, biblical and/or traditional, but to summarize the ones given by Prophet Moses, designed to express God’s prophetic, historical times and plan of redemption for humankind.  
The LORD spoke to Moses, saying: “Speak to the Israelite people and say to them: ‘These are My fixed times [moedim], the fixed [appointed] times of the LORD, which you shall proclaim as sacred occasions.’” (Lev. 23:1-2) TNK; Intrpl. mine
†   
For Christians who believe that the ancient holy days are irrelevant to keepers of the New Covenant, I ask that you not be self-deceived but read on and learn of the wonderful mysteries of God’s works, as understood by the few scribes and sages who take from both the Old and New Testaments. Likewise, Jews who believe that there is nothing new that can be learned about the moedim, I ask that you not deceive yourselves, for truly your rabbis comprehend very little and have hindered the messianic truths by not reading Isaiah 53 during Sabbaths; had they understood the Moedim Paradigm, they would not have sought to deny the Messiah Yeshua and lead Israel astray. The children of the coming Kingdom of Heaven will comprehend all of God’s works, and all will know that the timely structure of this work is indeed Divine and true. 
“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet that was cast into the sea and gathered some of every kind [people], which when it was full, they drew to shore [to Israel, the coming Kingdom]; and they sat down and gathered the good into vessels, but threw the bad away. So it will be at the end of the age. The angels [Divine messengers] will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just, and cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.” Jesus said to them, “Have you understood all these things?” They said to Him, “Yes, Lord.” Then He said to them, “Therefore every scribe instructed concerning the kingdom of heaven [the Kingdom hidden in this world] is like a householder who brings out of his treasure things new and old.” (Matt. 13:47-52) NKJV; Intrpl. mine

Moedim Paradigm in Pyramid Formation, IM

Before getting into the feasts, a recap may be in order for those who haven’t read prior MOTS articles. The Moedim Paradigm is a millennial template that expresses a mix between God’s works and humankind’s works since the beginning of Mesolithic period, almost 12,000 years ago. That is where the creation days of Genesis truly began, with each of the days consisting of a millennium. It is complete at the end of the age at what Christians know as “The Great White Throne Judgment.” The GWTJ is the 14th millennial day, after the Sabbath millennium of Messiah.

If we consider the 14th day (after the Sabbath) to be an entire millennium- the “last day”- then the paradigm covers 14,000 literal years. The paradigm (see feature image at the top of the article) is divided into three weeks of seven thousand years each, with a Sabbath after the six millennial days of restoration in Genesis (bottom week); a Sabbath missed by the nation of Israel (middle week); and a final Great Sabbath offered for all believers at the return of Messiah (top week).

To better comprehend these three, overlapping weeks, study the Book of Hebrews, particularly chapters 3 and 4. Within the book is a message that a Great Sabbath is yet to come. Overlapping the workweek of God in Genesis, and being overlapped by the workweek appointed to the nations, is a week that concerns Israel, as an intermediate between God and humankind. Just as the Messiah came as an Intermediate, the biblical nation of His works is symbolically a national intermediate- for salvation (our Yeshua) is of the Jews. Thus, with these overlapping weeks there are twenty-two millennial days- not a literal length of time but biblically instructive. The final millennial day, after the Great Sabbath of Messiah, is the 22nd letter/day- Shemini Atzereth (G.W.T.J.); historically, it is the 14th millennium since the beginning of the Holocene and God’s work of creating Eden in southern Mesopotamia.

Consider this to understand the intermediate week of Hebrews: The sons of God came on the fourth millennium of God’s restorative works, as luminaries, where the Greater Light, Christ, ruled the children of Day, and the Lesser Light, Satan, ruled the children of Night. For three millenniums before Adam, the “sons of God” were doing the works with God. In the millennium of civilization, Adam began his works for the Lord in the garden. Then, the “sons of God” looked upon the daughters of Adam and they intermarried. On the 5th millennium of the middle week (2nd in the top week) the rebellious “sons of God” were cast down for their transgressions, but the children of Adam continued on in a genealogy that led to the sacrifice of Christ. Thus, the intermediate week of Israel expresses this division in the works of God, between the ancient “sons of God” and the “children of Israel.”
.
In other words, the “sons of God” and those who became the “children of God” share a week, with Adam in the middle millennium. Likewise, the world shares a workweek with God’s works in our history of civilization (since Adam), with the Messiah in the middle millennium of the upper week. Thus, the bottom week shows the sharing of work between God and the sons of God; the middle week shows sharing of the works between the sons of God and the children of Israel, since Adam; and the top week shows a sharing of work between Israel from Adam and Gentile nations from Christ. Moreover, the paradigm shows God’s works being shared with His people over millennia.
These twenty-two days of the template are the assembly of three weeks followed by a final, 22nd day. In the Book of Hebrews, these three weeks can be discerned by three Great Sabbaths: the one missed by Adam and Eve; the one missed by Israel; and the one people of the world are warned not to miss when the Messiah comes. The Messiah will be as Adam, and the elect of New Jerusalem as a covenant Bride, when He restores the Kingdom of Israel, like the Garden of Eden, and gathers all the lost sheep home for a global Sabbath. I repeat these things because they are foreign to theological doctrines and eschatological exegeses, and they have never been fully discerned nor taught in the religions of Christianity and Judaism. Once this the paradigm is fully perceived, the following moedim feasts can also be fully comprehended as the messianic foreshadowings that they were Divinely designed to be:
FEASTS/APPOINTED DAYS OF NISAN (AVIV)
  • Vayikra: the Sacred New Year on the 1st day
  • Lamb Selection Day: Passover Preparation on the 10th day
  • Pesach: the Passover on the 14th day
  • Hag HaMatzot: the Feast of Unleavened Bread, 15th–21st day

FEASTS/APPOINTED DAYS OF TISHRI

  • Rosh HaShanah: Feast of trumpets, secular New Year on the 1st day
  • Yom Kippur: the Day of Atonement on the 10th day
  • Hag HaSukkoth: the Feast of Tabernacles, 15th-21st day
  • Shemini Atzeret: the Eighth Day Assembly on the 22nd day
At first glance it should be readily apparent that most of the feasts and Divinely-commanded days of the 1st month of the sacred calendar (7th month of civil calendar) mirror the feasts of the 1st month of the civil calendar (7th month of sacred calendar). Passover on the 14th of Nisan and the Eighth Day Assembly on the 22nd day of Tishri appear to defy the pattern. Before this is explained, first we must know why the Hebrews had two calendars: sacred and civil. (NB: Devout Jews have several special days within the aforementioned months that are not appointed and set days. Thus, they are Scripture-based but not included as moedim.)

Before God led the Israelite slaves out of Egypt, He first changed their seventh month into a first sacred month for a new beginning. He did so that they would someday comprehend that the 7th millennial day (Great Sabbath) will become a new beginning of God with mankind. Likewise, the 7th millennial day of God, when He rested from His Genesis works, was the 1st millennial day from Adam.

So there was a long-term plan for humanity that would mirror His creative works in the beginning- as explained in the Prophetic Genesis Theory. The days of God and civil mankind would overlap on the 7th and 1st months. (See the Moedim Paradigm template for a visual.)

Yet, there is another important reason for dividing the moedim into two pinnacle months. Although all the moedim days are globally relevant and prophetic, the first month of the sacred calendar (Aviv or Nisan) has holy days that focused Israel on the first coming of the Messiah. They foreshadowed the selection of the Lamb of God and His sacrifice on the Passover. The leaven of sin would be removed from the houses of Israel and Judah, from the millennial week. The Suffering Servant Messiah was displayed before the LORD on the cross, and Israelites were to foreshadow this by the Omer Wave Offerings. The Wave Offering celebrated the first of the harvest, beginning the Feast of Firstfruits. As explained centuries later in the New Testament, Christ’s Jewish followers and apostles were Firstfruits of the spiritual harvest of God. 
When we get into the moedim of the first civil month (Tishri), we find that sacred days focus on the second coming- the Conquering King Messiah. They are apocalyptic and look to the Great Sabbath and final judgment. Hence, God commanded Israelites to make the first day of the seventh month (first month of civil calendar) a Sabbath, where they would blow their trumpets, as seen in the trumpets at Jericho and the Book of Revelation. The Day of Atonement for national Israel will come on the Great Sabbath (see moedim template). There will be an ingathering of people who abide in tabernacles and tents as they await the Messiah, which is why the Feast of Tabernacles is also called the “Feast of Ingathering.” It concerns the nations during and after the Apocalypse and the gathering of the elect (see Zech. 14:16).
This is why the Book of Revelation first reveals those who are sealed for the Day of the LORD as Firstfruits of Israel (cf. Rom. 8:23; James 1:18; Rev. 14:4), but then it describes a great multitude from all nations waving palm branches (see Rev. 7:9-10). Seven kinds of fruits are traditionally ingathered during the Feast of Tabernacles. The great multitude waving the palm branches include the lost sheep of ancient Israel and adopted Gentiles of Christ- a prophetic feast of the ingathered that fulfils Sukkot (cf. Deut. 16:16-17; Ex. 23:16; 34:22). They are ingathered during a week of years during the Apocalypse, when Zion is built up for the restoration of all tribes, adopted and natural.
Also on the fifteenth day of the seven month, when you have gathered in the fruit of the land, you shall keep the feast of the LORD for seven days; on the first day there shall be a sabbath-rest, and on the eighth day a sabbath-rest. And you shall take for yourselves on the first day the fruit of beautiful trees, branches of palm trees, the boughs of leafy trees, and willows of the brook; and you shall rejoice before the LORD your God for seven days. (Lev. 23:39-40) NKJV
†   
When the vision of the glorious second coming of the Messiah was seen on a mountain by Peter, James, and John, they witnessed the Feast of Tabernacles, whereas Peter thought to make three temporary booths, for Messiah, Moses, and Elijah (Matt. 17:3-4). From shadows to substance, Messiah commanded that the vision not be disclosed until He was raised on the third day (see Matt. 17:9); this means that the truth will be hidden from most of the world until the Body of Christ is raised in fulfillment of Tabernacles on the third day since the sacrifice, the cross. Sukkot foreshadows things awaited for the third day.
By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. (Heb. 11:8-10) KJV
 † 
During the gathering and restoration of all twelve tribes of Israel, people will be looking for the coming of Messiah in Jerusalem. Before His time comes, when He is seen in the clouds of heaven, He will first walk secretly as a thief in the House of Israel (see John 7:2-8). He will not proclaim that He is the Messiah, as imposters will and often do. He will only be revealed at the last trumpet, when He comes as flying birds descending from Heaven to save His city and battle His national enemies (see Isa. 31:5).
_
In the middle of the week of seven years, during the coming Apocalypse, His truths will be taught by two witnesses to those dwelling in tabernacles, booths, and tents. (Compare also Deut. 32:7; Ps. 27:3-5; 31:20-21; 143:5-6, 9). Then, on the seventh year He will come like rain, just as the priests poured water and wine on the altar with a prayer for rain, on the seventh day of Tabernacles- Hoshanna Rabbah. (See John 7:37-38 and Isa. 55:1, 3-6.)
†  
During the Feast of Tabernacles, Jews wave what is called the “Lulav” of four sorts of fruits for the end of the harvest season (seven from ancient times). They traditionally wave these ingathered fruits to four directions and up and down in thanks to God for His good provisions. And though God commanded Jews to live in these booths/tabernacles for seven days in commemoration of their liberty from Egypt, so that they would not forget the time of salvation when they dwelt in them in the wilderness, the feast is also prophetic of God’s harvest/gathering out of the four corners of the world. In essence, believers all over the world are dwelling in temporary tents of our mortal bodies, in a spiritual wilderness, awaiting the Promised Land of the Kingdom of Heaven. So, for us, waving the harvest Lulav in the form of a cross foreshadows the harvest of Christ, although most Jews do not discern this, and the moed is a foreign holiday to most Christians. Waving the fruits up and down reveals that Messiah, the Beginning and Ending of the fruits of God, came from Heaven to Earth and went from Earth to Heaven, and, at the end of God’s spiritual harvest, He will come from Heaven to Earth once more.

Moedim Paradigm, Image Mine
Moedim Paradigm, Image Mine

During the seven days of the ancient Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) seventy bulls were sacrificed by the priests in a very peculiar sequence, significant concerning the Moedim Paradigm. On the first day of the feast, thirteen bulls were sacrificed; on the second day, twelve; third day, eleven; and so on until there were seven bulls sacrificed on the seventh day.

The interesting thing is that it reveals the number of millennial days since the beginning of God’s works in Genesis through the reign of Messiah during the Great Sabbath.

Rather than explaining how, I will instruct readers to form an illustration. Number 1 through 13 across on a piece of paper, then form an arch from each day of the feast to the number of bulls sacrificed on it, such as the 1st day to 13 bulls and the 2nd day to 12 bulls. By the time the drawer gets to the 7th day of the feast, he or she should have something that resembles a rainbow or a menorah, depending on whether the arches were drawn above or below. God gave the feast to confess how our millennial week would confess 14 actual days in the paradigm, centered on the 7th day with the 7 bulls. Each numbered day plus its sacrificial bull(s) equals 14.

(NB: For those wanting to finish your menorah, go back to the center of your arches. Since day seven is for seven bulls and they parallel rather than allow for an arch connecting, simply draw two vertical, parallel lines from day seven through all the previously drawn arches. Now finish your seven-day-menorah by drawing horizontal lines from 1 to 2, from 3 to 4, from 5 to 6, from 7 to 7, from 8 to 9, from 10 to 11, and from 12 to 13. (NB: For those who want to subtract the days from their corresponding bulls, a countdown is given: 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, and 0.)
†  
Moses commissioned seventy judges in the wilderness (see Num. 11:16, 24-25), and with the High Priest of the Sanhedrin the number became 71. So the High Priest (Cohen/Kohan HaGadol) sat in the seat of Moses. On the 8th Day Assembly (Shemini Atzereth) only one bull was sacrificed (see Num. 29:35), which if added to the bulls of the Feast of Tabernacles is the 71st. Evidences of the New Covenant journey to the Kingdom of God mirroring the Old Covenant journey to the Promised Land are perceived in the things that Christ did, such as sending out 70 followers (cf. Luke 9:62; 10:1-3, 17-20) and Him being our High Priest (explained in the Book of Hebrews).
,
Thus, on the 14th millennial day, 8th day from Adam, at the G.W.T.J., only the sacrifice of the one High Priest will be brought before God, which the blood of goats and bulls merely foreshadowed. All other sacrifices merely witnessed to that 14th millennial day in which we await.
†  
Unlike the Feast of Unleavened Bread in Nisan (15th–21st), where the first and seventh day of the feast were for sacred convocations and rest (see Ex. 12:16), the Feast of Ingathering in Tishri has Sabbaths on the first day (15th) and the day after the last day of Tabernacles (21st), on an eighth day that is the 22nd day of the month. This is because many people will not be raised to reign with the Messiah on the Great Sabbath, but they will be raised for rest after the G.W.T.J. of the Eighth Day Assembly. Those who are saved from the nations will then enter the rest of God. The Beast and the False Prophet will have no rest, nor will those who take their mark, but the smoke of their destruction will ascend as a reminder during the Great Sabbath. It would be better for them to pluck out their eye or cut off their hand that offends rather than have their whole body cast into the fiery hell that is coming for those who hate God. As Scripture proclaims, there is no Sabbath for the wicked. (NB: There are regular weekly Sabbaths and there are “High Sabbaths” that are special placements).        
†   
When we get to the 10th day of the sacred calendar, we should now perceive why God commanded Hebrews to select unblemished lambs to keep in their homes until Passover. At 10,000 years from the beginning of God’s works for civilization, the Lamb of God would be selected for a much greater sacrifice of salvation. On the 10th millennial day, prophets such as Isaiah began looking for the coming Lamb of God. Likewise, on the 10th day of the 7th month of the sacred calendar, the Hebrews were commanded to have a Day of Atonement for Israel, which Jews consider the most sacred. God would provide atonement at 10,000 years. 
But concerning the Passover, God refines our spiritual perception, for the lambs selected on the 10th day had to be kept in Hebrew homes for 4 whole days, as already explained in previous articles. This was because the Lamb of God had been in the House of Humanity since our new beginning with Adam, for 4,000 years. Both durations of time had to be shown. The 14th day, when the lambs were sacrificed, had to show 10,000 actual years correlate with the 14th millennial day of Israel in the Moedim Paradigm. Further, the final Passover is at the G.W.T. J. on the 14th millennial day, when the elect will be divided on the right from those who perish on the left. Hence, sprinkling of the blood on Yom Kippur is equivalent in the panoramic picture to the smearing of paschal blood on doorposts on the Passover.
†   
The Jewish New Year, Rosh HaShanah (head of the year), is held on the first day of the month with shofars blown, followed by nine more days of repentance until Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) on the 10th. This period is often called the “Days of Awe” or sometimes “Days of Woe.” These ten, woeful days are traditionally a time of national reverence for God’s Day of Judgment. The first day of the seventh sacred month is also called “Yom Teruah” which means the day of blowing or day of shouting (see Lev. 23:24-25). The apocalyptic nature of this can be perceived by it also being a day of “salvation from your enemies” (see Num. 10:9-10).

The Messiah came to Israel for the first time at the end of a 10th millennial day, and He wept over the harsh judgment coming on Jerusalem and the children of Israel. Within a generation of His sacrifice, the city and Temple were destroyed by the Romans, and the people of promise lost their homeland during the Diaspora.

When Messiah comes again to Israel, it will be their 10th day in the Moedim Paradigm, and the beastly nations will be cast out at the Judgment Seat of Christ- also called the “Bema Seat.” Thus, on the first year of the Great Sabbath the trumpets of heaven will be blown to save Israel from the beastly nations. Yet for the saved of Israel it will be a day of salvation and national atonement. It is both a new creation and day of judgment, paralleling Jewish traditional teachings. 

With the two seven-day-feasts (Hag HaMatzot and Sukkot) kept from the 15th through the 21st of their perspective months, the former in Nisan and the latter in Tishri, we find that the tabernacle of humanity consist of seven millennial days from Adam, and that the prideful leaven of sin, pride of civilization, would be removed from the elect from this duration. Having seven days for both of these feasts from 15th through 21st reveals their Divine placement within the Moedim Paradigm. As seen, the 21st day in overlapping weeks is the Great Sabbath from Adam.
†  
Finally, of the main set feasts of Torah, we have the 22nd of Tishri which is the Eighth Day Assembly, when Hebrews would assemble before God on the Sabbath. It was an 8th day because it came after the seven days of Feast of Tabernacles (booths). This day, as mentioned elsewhere, foreshadows the GWTJ on the 8th millennial day from Adam- 22nd in the paradigm. Little is disclosed about the High Sabbath of the Shemini Atzereth, just as Scripture does not tell us what lies beyond the final judgment in the Olam Haba (i.e., world to come). All prophetic Scriptures for humankind will be fulfilled, leaving the infinite times to come a mystery. I suspect that from the 22nd day forward that the saved and glorified form of humankind will possess our history of good and evil as a biblical library that teaches those in the future how far spirits will rebel in darkness without God. Lord only knows.

One of the moedim that I exclude from the eight is Hag Shavuot, which is the Feast of Weeks that foreshadowed the Christian Pentecost. I excluded this fiftieth day moed because it is not appointed for Nisan nor Tishri. Israelites were commanded by God to begin counting down seven weeks of days during the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and on the fiftieth day- kept within the month of Sivan- they would celebrate it. The second excluded moed is Hag Shavuot’s rippling counterpart- the Jubilee Year. Rather than a Jubilee being a fiftieth day celebration of the year, it is the fiftieth year- a bicentennial moed. Like the Feast of Weeks, it is counted after seven weeks, only weeks of years.
.
Thus, I will now explain where the peculiar number 50 fits within the paradigm.
So let no one judge you in food or drink, or regarding a festival [feast day] or a new moon or Sabbaths, which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance [fulfilling body] is of Christ (Col. 2:16-17) NKJV; intrpl. mine
THE JUBILEE SHALL SET YOU FREE
†  
The Hebrews were slaves in Egypt for much of the four hundred years that they dwelled in the land, so when they were set free God had them commemorate their redemption and liberty in several ways. One way was by keeping every fiftieth year as a Jubilee. During this special year all debts were counted paid, and Israelites who were sold- or who had sold themselves- into slavery were set free to return to their land and tribes. Jubilees were a way for God to ensure that there would be no permanent family of slaves in Israel, although slavery was a regular part of the economies of the world until recent centuries.
†  
One of the reasons God made the Jubilee every 50th year is so that it would witness to when Hebrews were set free from Egypt. From Adam to their exodus from Egypt were fifty Jubilee Years, which means 2,500 years (50 x 50). This was 1,500 years before the cross, which Beecher dates at 1498 BC and Ussher at 1491 BC. Thus, Jubilee Years were given as easy-to-understand pillars for keeping the long ages of the millennial week right, or at least once all of this information is restored and comprehended.

JUBILEE LIFE OF MOSHE
JUBILEE LIFE OF MOSHE, IMAGE MINE
Jubilees are fascinating years because they ultimately witness to the greater redemption we have in the true Lamb of God. For example, Moses was 80 years old during the first Passover out of Egypt, and 80 Jubilee Years (80 x 50) are 4,000 years (the cross). Moses, of course, gave Israel the Jubilees of God, so it should make sense that him being 80 years old when the first Passover lambs were slaughtered, when Israelites would begin receiving the Word of God, witnesses to the Lamb of God being sacrificed at 80 Jubilee Years, when Gentiles would begin receiving the New Covenant Word of God, as a means of redemption and liberty that would ripple out into the world. Moses was a type of savior for Israel with the Old Covenant, just as Messiah is to the entire world with the New Covenant.
Moses was 120 years old when he died, leaving Yehoshua to lead Israelites into the Promised Land, and 120 Jubilee Years are 6,000 years (120 x 50). The Lord redeemed us at the cross (80 Jubilee Years), and when 6,000 years are complete (120 Jubilee Years) we will enter the promise of a Great Sabbath. What this means is that Israel foreshadowed promises that would be revealed and fulfilled for the whole world. All appointed times in the Old Covenant are shadows of the substance of Christ in the New Covenant, soundly correlated. As Moses gathered Hebrews from Egyptians, the Lord gathers the elect from all Gentile nations to fulfill His promises to restore Israel and bring global peace.
When the Lord told righteous Noah that He would not always strive with humans, and that our days would be 120 years, we know that with Jubilee Years this means that at 6,000 years the longsuffering of the Lord will give way to His judgment on the world. The trumpets will be blown and the elect will be redeemed, set free from the world and gathered to their inheritance. Thus, as with the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. (See Noah’s Ark Parable in a following article to discern all the prophetic measurements and biblical symbolism of the flood account.)
Once we understand the Moedim Paradigm and the prophetic significance of the Jubilee, many other things that God wove throughout His timely structure begin to make perfect sense, such as the Day of Atonement for Israel on the 10th day in the paradigm (seventh millennial day from Adam):
And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years. Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. And ye shall hollow [make kodesh] the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubilee unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his family. (Lev. 25:8-10) KJV; intrpl. mine
†   
What may not yet be discerned is why God multiplied weeks of years rather than simply telling the Israelites to keep every 50th year as the Jubilee. Much is left to explain about the Jubilees, but this is a good place for us to move on to rippling sevens.
MULTIPLICATION OF SEVENS

.

Oftentimes, learning Christians want to know how biblical scholars know that the Apocalypse will consist of a week of years. The answer is rather simple: Prophet Daniel laid-out 70 weeks of years (490 yrs) that the Messiah would fulfill with both of His arrivals. Of those seventy weeks, 69 have passed (483 years), and one week remains as the Age of the Gentile comes to a close. The first 69 weeks of prophesy are now Jewish history, from rebuilding Jerusalem after Babylonian captivity to the cross, and Daniel left a gap from the sacrifice of the Messiah to a final week. Daniel left a week of years (seven years) set apart as the 70th week, where he picks-back-up from where he left off at the cross, beginning again at a seven-year-covenant to be made with Israel and “many people.” Daniel does not differentiate between the Romans who crucified Messiah and the one (Anti-Messiah) who will betray Israel and Christianity at the time of the end. This leaves an impression that the Antichrist will mirror Roman emperors of the past in his cruelty on Jews and Christians. 

In the following passage, notice that Prophet Daniel mentions that the Messiah is “cut-off,” followed by Jerusalem and the Temple being destroyed, then desolations of the Jewish people in the Diaspora. Daniel again mentions the sacrifices of the Temple in a final week of years that he sets apart at the end. The mere fact that the Temple is destroyed before the final “week” in Daniel’s prophecy, then manifest in the 70th, justifies a long gap in history. And in the final week Jews are cleansed of sins, prophecy is complete, and the Most Holy is anointed by the Great King:
“Seventy weeks [490 years] are determined for your people [Jews] and for your holy city [Jerusalem], to finish the transgression, to make an end of sins [the cross], to make reconciliation [atonement] for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Most Holy. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the command [decree] to build Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince, there shall be seven week [49 years until the command] and sixty-two weeks [434 more years]; the streets [city square/plaza] shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublesome times. And after the sixty-two weeks [434 years] Messiah shall be cut off [killed], but not for Himself [but for us]; and the people of the prince to come [Romans] shall destroy the city [Jerusalem] and the sanctuary [Temple]. The end of it shall be with a flood [flood of troops], and to the end of the war desolations [Diaspora] are determined. Then he [?] shall confirm a covenant with many [peoples] for one week [7 years]; but in the middle of the week [3.5 years] he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate [Abomination of Desolation in a wing of the Temple], even until the consummation, which is determined, is poured out on the desolate [or desolator].” (Dan. 9:24-27) NKJV; intrpl. mine
Simply put, from the time that Daniel was given the prophecy about the rebuilding of Jerusalem (that Babylon had earlier destroyed) to the actual decree for Jews to rebuild the plaza, ditches, and wall were 49 years- plaza not to be confused with work for rebuilding the Temple under Zerrubabel. This was when 7 weeks of years were fulfilled.
† 
From the time the decree was given to rebuild the city unto the Messiah was crucified for others were another 434 years. Then, the Temple and Jerusalem were destroyed by the people of an unnamed “prince,” which was exactly what Prince Titus, son of Roman Emperor Vespasian, did 68-70 A.D. Titus was the General of the destroying 10th Legion but soon shared the emperorship with his father. So the Temple was completely destroyed as Daniel predicted, with Jerusalem burned and overrun with a flood of troops. Those who were left of Jerusalem’s inhabitants, who rebuilt as they were able, were wiped out of the Holy Land after revolting against the Romans c. 135 C.E. Jerusalem, Daniel was told, would again be destroyed with Jewish desolations, but the appointed times for Jews are not given in the prophecies after the cross. Daniel said that Jews would remain scattered until the end of the war, with desolations determined.
† 
Finally, Daniel mentioned a week set apart, where an unknown “he” will confirm a covenant between Israel and many people for the final seven years. Then, this prince-to-come would break the covenant in the middle of the week, at 3.5 years, causing sacrifices to cease. This means that at the end of the silent gap the Temple in Jerusalem will be rebuilt at least enough for sacrifices- on a wing.
Daniel’s prophecies were so accurate and studied by devout Jews for the five following centuries that many people were looking for the Messiah in the generation of Yeshua haMashiach. But there remains the question of why God decreed 70 weeks of years in the first place. Also, what is the purpose of the Beast breaking the covenant in the middle of the last week? As the moon reflects the sun, the adversary seeks to fulfill the Scriptures for his own glory. He knows that the Word of God must stand, so twisting the Word is his objective. The Messiah was foretold to come in the midst of the heavenly week [7,000 years] to establish a new covenant- central or fourth millennial day- for Israel had broken the Old Covenant according to God at about 3,500 years from Adam. Thus, it mirrored a breaking of the covenant with the Jews via a week of years.
.   
Daniel’s prophecy alludes to the 70 weeks as an on-going war over ages, with rebuilding, destruction, and again rebuilding Jerusalem, until Israel is exalted with all the tribes gathered-in with the King. This is why the Age of the Gentiles- the gap- is complete. Prophecy picks-back-up with the last week concerning Israel.
†   
The reason why Daniel was given the 70 x 7 years (490 years or 70 weeks) until the desolations are complete must first be understood. God promised the Hebrew people that He would punish them “seven times more” if they did not repent of their sins and keep His Sabbaths. Thus, the 70 years of their desolations in Babylonian captivity, which gave rest to the land, was multiplied by 7 to 490 years. At the end of 490 years, not including the prophetic gap given for grace to the Gentiles, the desolations of all of the Lord’s people will be complete with the entire House of Israel gathered back in. Seven years are left for the gathering in of the people, which is called the “building-up of Zion.”
So as Abram was the natural birth father of Israel, born 1,948 years after Adam, yet he was called out of Babylon 2,023 years after Adam (being 75 years of age), so, too, has natural Israel been reborn after the second Adam in commonly reckoned “years of our Lord,” with a coming out of Babylon by all who are of Abraham’s faith, to begin building up for the promise 2023 AD.  If these things are correct, the last year of the last week will be 2029/2030 AD. This is the fulfillment of the Feast of Ingathering, when fruits not yet gathered are brought-in at the latter harvest season. This gathering of the people of God to the place of God is what Satan and his nations of the Beast will seek to prevent.
.
In Revelation we see this extension of the Jews’ Babylonian Captivity as the Lord calls His people out of Babylon- His people having grown along with the meaning of Babylon.Hence, the Suffering Servant Messiah died and rose at 33 years of age, and a gap is left of 7 years to complete the generation hidden in Christ and God, that a chosen 42nd generation not pass away without completing this. They will be gathered and complete the Body of Christ for a holy priesthood, soon to be established for Jerusalem after Jacob’s troubles.

Therefore, the ripples in the waters of the Word are manifest to those who understand the Sabbaths. This pattern verifies the appointed times of the original Rock of God:

People Circling Cross, PDI
People Circling Cross, PDI
  1. 7th day Sabbath
  2. 7×7 = 49 days then Pentecost (50th day)
  3. 7th year land Sabbath
  4. 7×7 = 49 years then Jubilee (50th year)
  5. 7 decades Sabbath of the land- 70 years of Babylonian captivity
  6. 7×7 = 49 decades or 490 years then (50th decade)
  7. 7th millennial day Sabbath 
All the Sabbath themes come together for the Great Sabbath. The firstfruits of God are gathered in, then the ingathering of the rest of the people of God at the end of the harvest- Jewish and Christian believers. The Spirit of God comes and the servants are set free. The desolations are complete. Sins are forgiven, and the people of the Lord gather before Him and enter His rest. This is the end of the 70×7 years of Daniel, when Messiah is anointed and the nation is atoned of sins. The Great Sabbath is the last ripple of the waters of the Word, where the 70×7 reverts back to the 7th day, being a millennial day to the Lord.

ELOHIM YHVH'S WHEEL OF SABBATH RIPPLES, Image Mine
WHEEL OF SABBATH RIPPLES, IM
Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, upto seven times, but up to seventy times seven. Therefore the kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants.” (Matt. 18:21-23) NKJV
.
Readers should search Scripture to see that these things are true. The main thing to learn is that Kingdom of Heaven comes after the 70×7 is complete and all accounts- desolations- are settled with the children of Israel. When we consider all these ripples, we discern that the passage clearly foretells when the Kingdom of Heaven comes, like the Jewish return to the Holy Land from Babylon.
 .  
When Israel did not keep the Sabbaths of the land, which is every seventh year that it is not to be worked, the Lord sent them into seventy years of Babylonian captivity. The period of captivity would make up for 490 years of disregard for the laws and Sabbaths of God. Nevertheless, the warnings of God were not heeded collectively by the nation to keep all His laws, and thus the 70 years were multiplied by 7 to confirm God’s warnings that came with Israel’s covenant (cf. Lev. 26:18-35). Nations would rule over them; beasts would devour them; etc. Thus when Christ tied the 70 times 7 into the Kingdom of Heaven and the King who wanted to settle debts with His servants, He was speaking of more than only one Jewish brother needing forgiveness (Peter’s brother), but rather of the whole nation that will be the Kingdom of Heaven, manifest when Christ atones for His people.
WINE AND GRAIN OFFERINGS
.   
For lamb sacrifices, Moses was instructed to offer 1/10 (tithe) of a grain ephah. Along with it, ¼ of a hin of wine and ¼ a of a hin of oil was called for. Again, this should no longer be mysterious to most readers, but for those who may not yet comprehend the millennial template, the measurements represent the ministry of Messiah on the 4th millennial day from Adam, which was the 10th from the beginning of the Genesis restoration days (i.e., after the Younger Dryas).
.
The wine represents the Spirit in the Word, and the oil symbolizes the anointing. The grain represents how the Word nourishes our spiritual lives. The lambs represented the first coming of Christ, but the rams of sacrifice require some thought because they concern the second coming- the sacrifice matured in our comprehension with the passage of time. So with ram sacrifices, 2/10 of a grain ephah was commanded, for Christ came on a 10th day in the paradigm and He will return on another 10th day as Israel receives His atonement. With ram sacrifices the Divine ordinance also calls for 1/3 hin of wine, since Messiah returns on the 3rd day (since the cross) rather than 4th- measurements for the lambs.
   
The difference in the number of sacrifices between the seven-day Feast of Unleavened Bread and the seven-day Feast of Tabernacles is also telling. For the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which primarily represents the first coming of Messiah, 7 lambs were sacrificed for each day of the feast, which means that 49 lambs were needed by the priests. But for the Feast of Tabernacles, which primarily looks to the second coming, 14 lambs were sacrificed for each of the seven days, which doubles the former to 98. Likewise, 7 rams, one per day, were sacrificed for the former feast, but for the latter feast 14 rams, two per day, were commanded. These things beg for comparison of the 7 millennial days alongside the 14 millennial days in the paradigm- the literal amount of years that complete the works of God for civilized mankind. If we add the rams together we come to the 21st figurative day in the Moedim Paradigm, which is the Day of YHVH. Finally, if we add 1 more ram for the Eighth Day Assembly (Shemini Atzereth), which is the final feast that is kept on the 22nd of Tishri, we find the completed paradigm of 22 figurative days. So the 7 lambs sacrificed on the 22nd day (Shemini Atzereth) are connected to the 1 ram sacrificed on it.
†  
Yet there are also the goats and calves of sacrifice that beckon for extrication of their numbers. The difference is that lambs and rams are exclusive signs of the Messiah, whereas goats and calves also concern the sacrifices of people. Like the 2 rams for each of the seven days of the Feast of Tabernacles, 2 calves were sacrificed for each day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which reflects Christ’s sacrifice in His people. Thus the Lord’s cattle are also remembered, both of Jews and Gentiles. With the Feast of Tabernacles we find 70 calves are sacrificed, which represents the judgment seats (or Sanhedrin) given for an elect priesthood to judge humanity at Messiah’s coming. For goats the sacrifices are simple and the same for both seven-day feasts, where 1 per day was sacrificed- 7 total for both moedim feasts. On Yom Kippur there was a scapegoat that escaped into the wilderness, which the sins of the people were placed upon, and the sacrificial goat, which gave its blood for the High Priest to go into the Holy of Holies of God. The High Priest Yeshua was the one who took on our sins as a sacrifice for atonement, and we are the sinners who escape judgment in the wilderness of the world. But if we repent by accepting the Sacrifice of God, we will be considered sheep on the Last Day of the paradigm, and thus be saved.
“When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels [messengers] with Him, then He will sit on the throne of glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world’…Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels [messengers]’…And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” – Yeshua HaMashiach (Matt. 25:31-34, 41, 46) NKJV; Intrpl. mine
†   
Often we only think of the tender mercies of God through Christ, but when the time for judging the nations comes, justice will be done. Evil leaders will be slain along with the fanatics of Islam who rape and behead and torture in the name of their false prophet and riotous religion. By the time that the Messiah comes, Christians and Jews will be begging God to intervene against evil men in power and raging Islamists, and their perishing forever will be a great joy for the redeemed of God. Already Jews are persecuted and hated in many places, and Christians are being slaughtered and displaced throughout Africa and the Near-and Middle East, whereas Muslim sympathizers among national leaders are allowing their barbarity and lawless invasions. Nevertheless, their days are indeed numbered. If they love death and hell, Death and Hell will come to lead them to their abode; they will be granted an express ticket to join them by the Great King of Jerusalem.
.
Thus, let all people who read these things seek comprehension while there is still time, and forgiveness by the Spirit of the Divine in the name of the Messiah, the Lamb of God. As in the ancient days, the tender mercies of God will be kept again, as in the sacrificial shadows, but all people will hear and know that they confess the Creator’s works through Messiah. This is not a war for race or culture, but rather a war for God’s truths, and our Lord will prevail. Until He does, at the appointed time, let all the saints await His redemption. Moses and Elijah will appear in Jerusalem to instruct you, and the King of Glory will not delay in the purposes in which He has patiently awaited.
Many, O LORD my God, are Your wonderful works which You have done; and Your thoughts towards us cannot be recounted to You in order; if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered. Sacrifice and offering You did not desire; my ears You have opened. Burnt offering and sin offering You did not require. Then I said, “Behold, I come; in the scroll of the book it is written of me. I delight to do Your will, O my God, and Your law is within my heart.” I have proclaimed the good news [Gospel] of righteousness in the great assembly; indeed, I do not refrain my lips, O LORD, You Yourself know. I have not hidden Your righteousness within my heart; I have declared Your faithfulness and Your salvation [Yeshua]. I have not concealed Your lovingkindness and Your truth from the great assembly. (Ps. 40:5-10) NKJV; intrpl. mine
