|14 High Priests
˜14 + 450 Years
|18 High Priests
|300 High Priests
|Jesus (Order of Melchizedek)
(31 AD to Forever)
- Mishkan Desert (Wooden Structure) (1500 BC).
This temple actually existed in two phases according to the Jews.
It served for 39-40 years in the desert and 14 years in the Promised Land in Gilgal.
- Shiloh (Stone Structure).
A stone structure of the same dimensions replaced the wood, but it used the same furniture and roof for 369 years.
After Eli died it was set up in Nov for 13 years.
After Samuel's death it was set up in Giv'on for 44 years.
13 high priests served in this portable temple over 490 years (average 40 years).
- Solomon's Temple (950 BC).
Solomon built the first permanent temple. It was destroyed by Babylon in 586 BC (587 BCE) on Tisha b'Av (9th of Av) by Nebuchadnezzar II (2 Kings 25). The Babylonians breached the walls of the city on Tammuz 17.
18 high priests served over 410 years (average 25 years).
- Second Temple (515 BC - 70 AD) (Herod's Temple).
This temple was built by Zerubabbel and Joshua the high priest after they returned from Babylon.
Herod the Great remodeled the temple from 20 BC - 63 AD. Herod also built the town of Caesarea and the fortress of Masada, which included a palace. The second temple was destroyed by the Romans on 10 August 70 AD (9th of Av) three weeks after the walls of Jerusalem were breached by Titus on Tammuz 17.
300 high priests served over 420 years, most served less than a year.
Tradition states that many died during the Yom Kippur services.
The tradition of tying a blue cord around his feet on Yom Kippur began in this time so that they could drag the body out.
- Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha Moshiach) And Ezekiel's Temple.
He formally assumed His role forever. He was killed before the fourth sanctuary was destroyed "in the middle of the week".
On 70 AD He formally closed down the temple, forever stopping sacrifices there.
His rule is forever.
So it cannot be rebuilt.
So I am equally certain that every conceivable effort will be placed towards this one project.
So I am equally certain that God will stop it.
After Christ, no human agency stops this temple.
For now the Dome of the Rock stops it until He has set up His kindgom in its place.
Until then, wars will be over this little territory until He rules.
» Five Chances.
This reminds me of five chances before the curse.
In the sixth, we will go in exile - in heaven for 1000 years.
In the end of this 1000 year period, the wicked will be raised and judged according their own laws.
They will be eliminated by the condemnation of their own lips.
The Mark In The Head And Hands (Feet). In this time God allows Himelf to be captured by Dagon, where He gives a sign of the Mark of the Beast, by making Dagon bow before him, breaking his head, hands and feet the second time.
Breaking the feet means that he is an animal.
The Philistines were infected with the plague and begged the Israelites to remove it.
The church was captured for 1260 years, then the papacy was defeated in 1798.
This second time, over 217 years later, the papacy will be defeated while the wicked experience a plague.
Then we will create a new temple for God, built without hands.
- The Temple In Heaven.
Even this temple will come to its end, after existing from the beginning of time.
When the final jugdment had taken place and sin and sinners will never rise again, then this whole chapter can be eliminated.
- The New Earth. A new temple will be constructed in the New Earth.
Everything changes and returns to a new normal.
God will be permanently located in a different place, like Shiloh.
A new administration will be in place with the permanent High Priest, Jesus Christ.
Ezekiel's Temple: The Design Of The Sanctuary
"Let them make Me a sanctuary that I may dwell among them" (Exodus 25: 8) "according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount" (Hebrews 8: 5) because "Thy way, O Lord, is in the Sanctuary" (Psalm 77: 13).
Describe the temple to the house of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities; and let them measure the pattern. And if they are ashamed of all that they have done, make known to them the design of the temple and its arrangement, its exits and its entrances, its entire design and all its ordinances, all its forms and all its laws. Write it down in their sight, so that they may keep its whole design and all its ordinances, and perform them.
(Ezekiel 43: 10-11)
Originally thought of as just a "religious" object not having anything to do with real life, described as such by the best experts in theology, it has turned out to be the best system of describing the subatomic particles in the universe.
It has turned out to be the best kept secret in the universe revealed only to a person in the final days in 2008. It was never before reveled to angels, becoming a trap for Satan.
He has revealed what angels were not told.
As to this salvation, the prophets who prophesied of the grace that would come to you made careful searches and inquiries; seeking to know what person or time the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating as He predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories to follow. It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves, but you, in these things which have now been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven, things into which angels desire to look.
(1 Peter 1: 10-12)
- Judgment. It is a people and a sanctuary system under judgment since Christ began to rule at Yom Kippur.
- Ordinances And Laws. It describes the work of the Messiah in administering all the laws.
- Design and Pattern. This is the structure of the Mishkan at the atomic and subatomic level.
- Exits And Entrances. It describes the purpose and its expanding dimension. For the first time a north and south gate was opened for only the people to walk through. The eastern gate was kept open for the Prince on special occasions from the east to the west. Prior to this, only the eastern gate was opened on the Sabbath.
For this reason we have become a spectacle in the universe.
For, I think, God has exhibited us apostles last of all, as men condemned to death; because we have become a spectacle to the world, both to angels and to men.
To this present hour we are both hungry and thirsty, and are poorly clothed, and are roughly treated and are homeless.
(1 Corinthians 4: 9, 11)
Spiritual Warfare: The Destruction Of The Sanctuary On Yom Kippur
Numbers 10 is the law about the disassembly of the sanctuary and people during the exodus.
Our exodus began after the crucifixion with Christ leading as our High Priest.
This prophecy suggests that because of transgression we were handed over to the little horn of the scapegoat who usurped the place of Christ and tore down the true sanctuary on the day of atonement.
These are the steps in transporting the sanctuary and people.
First, the priest leads the people.
- Angel Of The Lord Leads. One angel came to comfort Christ in Gethsemane (Luke 22: 43).
Behold, I am going to send an angel before you to guard you along the way and to bring you into the place which I have prepared.
(Exodus 23: 20)
- The Cloud.
The cloud indicated when they were supposed to begin their exodus (Exodus 40: 34-38).
Jesus ascended in a cloud (Acts 1:9) and He will return with clouds to lead us back to heaven (Revelation 1: 7).
- Ark Of The Covenant. Christ keeps the covenant and earns the right to be High Priest and King.
- High Priest. Christ the High Priest leads the people to worship the Lord.
- Judah ("East"). Christ the King from the tribe of Judah leads the people on an exodus until they reject Him.
The First Alarm.
But when you blow an alarm, the camps that are pitched on the east side shall set out.
(Numbers 10: 5)
Sounding The Alarm.
Although four sides set out, yet an alarm is only blown when the first two leave on their journey. Why?
Trumpets sound for several events. The rules state here that an alarm is sounded for war.
When you go to war in your land against the adversary who attacks you, then you shall sound an alarm with the trumpets, that you may be remembered before the Lord your God, and be saved from your enemies.
(Numbers 10: 5)
So the tribes of Judah and Reuben are attacked by the enemy. Christ is the ram who was attacked and killed over 3.5 days by Satan, the scapegoat (Daniel 8: 7), but the little horn attacked the holy people over 3.5 prophetic years.

|Eastern Tribes ||31 AD
||Southern Tribes ||1798 ||1844
||West (Pleasant Land)
Christ was rejected by both branches of the church. So each was turned over to Rome.
- Jews Rejected Christ (31 AD). For 3.5 years after the crucifixion, the disciples ministered to the Jews.
- Covenant (34 AD). The covenant was given to the Gentiles through Jesus.
- Temple (70 AD). The temple was burned to the ground.
- People (135 AD). The people were exiled from Jerusalem and both groups separated.
- Christians Rejected Christ. The church was exiled to Rome 400 years after the division of the kingdom.
After the division of the kingdom (985BC), it also took 400 years for the Jews to be exiled to Babylon (586BC).
- Covenant (193 AD). The signs of the covenant were broken. First Sabbath, idolatry, His name and God.
- Temple (300 AD). The religion was corrupted and the people fell into apostasy.
- People (538 AD). The church was given to Rome for 1260 years.
When the people rejected the leadership of Christ and went astray, they were given up to the little horn because of transgression. Then the little horn destroyed everything (Daniel 8: 9-14).
And on account of transgression the host will be given over to the horn along with the regular sacrifice; and it will fling truth to the ground and perform its will and prosper.
(Daniel 8: 12)
Sanctuary Torn Down. The sanctuary is destroyed by removing the ceiling and then the building.
Then the tabernacle was taken down and the sons of Gershon and the sons of Merari, who were carrying the tabernacle, set out.
(Numbers 10: 17)
The little horn moved the heavenly sanctuary to the earth and trampled on it.
- Gershon ("Ceiling"). The little horn grew up to heaven and cast down some of the host and stars.
- Merari ("Building"). The sanctuary and fence were thrown down and trampled.
But the testimony is that God kept the pieces of the sanctuary safe among two groups. One has knowledge about heavenly things, and the other carried knowledge about the sanctuary system.
A prophecy in Ezekiel shows that the Christians are entrusted with knowledge about Christ as our High Priest in heaven and the Jews with knowledge about the laws, feasts and sanctuary until God unites them and restores complete knowledge about the Plan of Salvation.
Both groups kept the temple treasures safe.
- Ark Of The Covenant ("Laws And Throne"). It changed the Ten Commandments and took the place of God.
- Reuben ("South"). The little horn trampled down the host and stars. The people were afflicted.
The Second Alarm.
When you blow an alarm the second time, the camps that are pitched on the south side shall set out. An alarm is to be blown for them to set out.
(Numbers 10: 6)
An alarm is sounded for this phase of the church because they are being attacked by their enemies.
The early church was attacked and slaughtered by the little horn for 1260 years.
- Kohath ("Furniture Or Holy Objects"). The little horn successfully trampled truth and changed the ordinances.
It took away the holy objects.
The Horror Of The Great Transgression. The little horn placed all the holy objects under its jurisdiction.
The testimony of God is that what the little horn did was a horrible transgression that was equivalent to tearing down the building and the people, maliciously stepping on them and smashing them into the dirt.
- Altar Of Sacrifice ("Offering"). The sacrifice of Christ which was done once for all is killed repeatedly on their altars as the Eucharist in the doctrine of transsubstantiation.
» Daily Stopped ("Continual"). While the sanctuary and furniture are disassembled and in transit, the continual offering cannot be burned. People confessed to human priests, not Jesus Christ.
» Manna ("Continual"). Note that during the exodus, before the sanctuary was built and while the sanctuary was in transit, the continual existed in the form of the manna from heaven.
So even in transit, the continual does not stop simply because the sanctuary has been disassembled.
- Laver ("Washing"). Baptism was replaced with sprinkling.
- Menorah ("Light"). Darkness replaced the light of the Gospel. Bible reading was forbidden.
- Table of Shewbread ("Bread and Wine"). Passover was replaced with something inferior and Pagan.
- Altar Of Incense ("Prayer"). Praying to the true High Priest was replaced with a human priesthood and dead saints.
Sanctuary Restored. The sanctuary is restored after 2300 days so that the holy people will find truth.
Then the Kohathites set out, carrying the holy objects; and the tabernacle was set up before their arrival.
(Numbers 10: 21)
Notice that two sequential events occur.
Restoring The Covenant (10 Commandments).
So we must repair the breach in the walls of the sanctuary.
- Sanctuary Restored. Knowledge of the sanctuary will be restored before the great awakening and reunion.
The Millerite movement of 1844 began this study of the sanctuary.
God is restoring knowledge of the Plan of Salvation.
- Sanctuary Science Restored (21 December 2008). On the first day of Hanukkah, God began revealing wonderful models of all sciences in the structure of the Mishkan - Moses' sanctuary.
God is restoring knowledge of Himself as the Creator.
- Kohatities Arrive With the Holy Objects. The righteous people in the south, who are now one group, will possess the holy truths that have been tarnished and neglected.
The sons of Kohath camp in the south and many prophecies suggest that at the time the two branches of the church reunite, they will be symbolically waiting in the south.
So here they are, the people of the south, with the holy truths.
As of March 2016, this event has not occured yet.
The Latter Rain will occur in conjunction with the taking of Jerusalem AND the giving over Jerusalem to the Catholic church.
Remember that there have been several attempts since 1948, but none have been successful. When it occurs, then God fights for us.
Key events, set up by UN Resolution 181, have allowed this scenario to occur.
Allowing them a generaton, the UN can set up Jerusalem as a Universal city, appointing their own administration, if they cannot resovle their problems peacably.
Repairing The Breach.
Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.
And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.
(Isaiah 58: 1, 12) all of Isaiah 58.
People now disregard the other 6 commandments and have introduced sodomy in the church
- Sabbath (162-163 AD). They began to force worship on another Sabbath.
- Idolatry (795-96 and 842-43). The church officially endorces idolatry in the iconoclast controversy.
- Name of God (1967-68 and 1493-94). The sixties broke all rules and reviled the name of God.
- God (1949-50 and 2014-2015). They said that God was another powerless being created by evolution.
- Joseph ("West"). The people are vindicated and restored and their reproach is removed. Joseph, who receives a double inheritance, now represents the two united branches of the church, Jews and Gentiles.
Restoring The People (Recreation).
So then, as priests of God, what is the Ark of the Covenant that we carry?
It is the law written in our hearts of flesh.
The Pen And Ink And Inscriber Of God.
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
(Hebrews 8: 10 and Jeremiah 31: 33)
It is then that Jesus will see what He has been waiting for.
Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
(John 17: 20-23)
Restoring The Land.
The Latter Rain.
This is the period of the Latter Rain when the earth will be filled with His glory (Revelation 18: 1).
When their testimony ends, the seven last plagues begin.
And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
(Revelation 18: 1-2)
No alarm is sounded when they set out. The implications are that God is with us and we do not need to sound an alarm to call Him to battle because we stand silent as He fights for us.
The Last Three Plagues (5-7). The Spirit of God will move to our rear guard and form a protective shield between us for the first four plagues. Then we will move forward as the enemy comes to attack us.
It appears that there is no hope.
We have seem this battle before.
As the wicked begin their attack and we are trapped between the Red Sea and the approaching army, the heavens roll away like a scroll.
The Battle In The Silence. The Lord will fight for you while you keep silent.
(Exodus 14: 14)
And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them
(Exodus 14: 19)
The heavens will roll away like a scroll, just like the Red Sea, and we shall cross over it like a sea of glass.
And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree.
(Isaiah 34: 4)
And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
(Revelation 6: 14-17)
At this phase of the church we are on the offensive until we are actually safe in heaven.
For those who fear the time of trouble, this is encouraging. We will win battles like Moses. Joshua, Gideon and David did!
This time, when God tells us to bathe ourselves and come up to the mountain to meet Him we will not hesitate nor ask someone else to intercede for us.
The Sea Of Glass.
And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.
(Revelation 15: 2)
- Dan ("North"). The little horn will be judged and punished as a serpent by God.
Dan is Satan, the master deceiver. The wicked are Asher who are dead and Napthai will be the wicked raised up again for the final jugdment and punishment.
No alarm is sounded because God is already at war during the judgment and the battle of Armageddon.
Spiritual Warfare: The Day Of Atonement
Daniel 8 has always been presented here as a Yom Kippur drama because of the symbolism of a broken sanctuary.
Then I recently learned from the Talmud and others about Erev-Boker.
- The Sanctuary Symbols. The structure of the sanctuary is being maliciously destroyed.
- Day of Atonement Animals. The clean animals and the battle between the goat and the ram both signal a Passover ram and a Yom Kippur scapegoat.
Since all sacrifices were fulfilled on Passover and Jesus was therefore the Yom Kippur Lord's Goat, then the prophecy could not present two goats in battle - the Lord's Goat and the scapegoat.
The Passover death makes the Ram precedent over the Lord's goat image to represent Christ in Daniel 8.
Although He was dressed in sin as a goat it was really a Ram that died.
- Evening-Morning ("Erev-Boker").
The "daily" or "continual" sacrifice as animals were described as "Morning Evening" sacrifices except for Yom Kippur which uses the "evening morning" order.
Command the children of Israel, that they bring unto thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamps to burn continually.
Without the vail of the testimony, in the tabernacle of the congregation, shall Aaron order it from the evening unto the morning before the Lord continually: it shall be a statute for ever in your generations.
(Leviticus 24: 2-3)
It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath.
(Leviticus 23: 32) also Exodus 27: 20-21
Continual "Morning-Evening" "Boker-Erev".
The one lamb shalt thou offer in the morning, and the other lamb shalt thou offer at even;
(Numbers 28: 10)
In the Genesis 1 creation we see the order of time as "evening morning".
This also points to a Yom Kippur drama, which then points to normal time when holiness is restored - a recreation.
Order Of Recreating The People.
The sequence of events in Numbers 10 shows the order in which Christ will rebuild His church.
The Holy Spirit works in sequence also to change us according to the New Covenat into people who will willingly obey God.
There has always been an order (Seder) to God's actions.
The order begins with the Passover the night before the Exodus.
The Bible says that the Lamb was slain at the foundation of the world.
God is vindicated at the end.
|Old Testament (Head Tefillin)
|(Hand Tefillin) New Testament
|Adam & Eve
||Adams & Eves
||Obey Statutes - Judgments
God Will Be Sanctified (Vindicated).
And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord, saith the Lord God, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.
 Rescued And Redeemed (Exodus At Passover). For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
 Washed And Cleansed (Baptism, Mikvah). Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
 Transformed (Tefillin).
A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you:
 Remove Disobedience (Circumcised).
and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
 Obey The Statutes And Judgments. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
(Ezekiel 36: 23-27)
- Signs (Passover Exodus, Baptism, Circumcision, Tefillin, Tzitzit, Holy Spirit). These are signs of how God will change us.
Passover initiates the signs (Exodus 13: 9-10).
Passover: Sign in the Hand and Forehead.
And it shall serve as a sign to you on your hand, and as a reminder on your forehead, that the law of the LORD may be in your mouth; for with a powerful hand the LORD brought you out of Egypt. Therefore, you shall keep this ordinance at its appointed time from year to year.
(Exodus 13: 9-10)
- Passover And Exodus (Crucifixion). Jesus was the Lamb slain at the foundation of the world, before Adam and Eve sinned.
Then He was the Lamb and the Lord's Goat at the crucifixion.
Jesus initiated the final events at the crucifixion.
Say, therefore, the sons of Israel I am the Lord your God,
 I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.
 And I will deliver you from their bondage.
 I will also redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments.
 Then I will take you for My people,
 and I will be your God, and you will know that I am the Lord your God, who brought you out from under the burden of the Egyptians.
 I will bring you to the Land which I swore to give to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob
 and I will give it to you for a possession.
 I am the Lord.
(Exodus 6: 6-8)
- Sprinkle Clean Water (Pentecost). Washing has been symbolized by the passage through the Red Sea, Mikvah and Baptism.
Pentecost initiated this step.
Baptized In The Red Sea.
Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;
And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
And did all eat the same spiritual meat;
And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.
(1 Corinthians 10: 1-4)
These are the steps to wash us clean.
- Circumcised. Removes the heart of stone which is stiff-necked and stubborn.
But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
(Romans 2: 29)
And the Lord thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.
(Deuteronomy 30: 6)
- New Heart. He replaces it with a heart of flesh.
And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:
(Ezekiel 11: 19)
A Lamb From The Beginning.
The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
(Revelation 17: 8)
- New Spirit (Tefillin). We will have the Holy Spirit with power, not an evil spirit.
If we are swept clean, we must voluntarily fill our minds and hearts with God or we will be filled by evil. This is what the tefillin teaches.
When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
Filled. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
(Matthew 12: 43-45).
Only God can sweep us clean. The Holy Spirit is the garnish. However, we must take steps to fill our minds with the knowledge of God or the evil one will take over.
Negligence in this matter is a sign that you do not value knowledge of God.
We must grow up in God.
And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue [moral excellence]; and to virtue knowledge;
And to knowledge temperance [self-control]; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity [love].
Fruitful And Useful.
For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren [useless] nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
(2 Peter 1: 5-8)
- Remember (Tzitzit).
When the Holy Spirit is written in our hearts, we will remember and know the law of God and no one has to teach us.
And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
(Jeremiah 31: 34)
Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.
Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.
Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.
(John 13: 8-10)
After the resurrection, all we need is to wash our feet. The law is already written in our head and hands.
- Obey Statutes And Judgments. The law is permanently written in our hearts.
The priests washed their feet in the laver before going into the sanctuary (Exodus 30: 18-19).
Statutes And Judgments (Tzitzit To Remember).
Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.
Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord:
Global Repentance. And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
(Malachi 4: 4-6)
In that I command thee this day to love the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the Lord thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.
(Deuteronomy 30: 16)
And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
(Revelation 12: 17)
- God Is Sanctified (Vindicated).
We are perfect when we are made in the image of God with the nature of God.
Jesus came to show them the Father. He sanctified them with the truth of the knowledge of God.
Sanctified And Made Holy.
Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
Perfect. I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
(John 17: 17, 21-23)
God has promised us perfection. We will escape the world that is corrupted by lust.
God's Nature (In His Image).
Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
(2 Peter 1: 4)
The Second Passover And The Second Tithe
This shows the order of recreation in time.
God's actions are done in real time, merging feast sabbaths with the weekly Sabbath. History is recorded in prophetic time in multiples of weeks (7) before God acts on a weekly Sabbath.

Jesus completed His work in 3.5 literal years and ended it in one spectacular week.
His work of restoring the sanctuary was in a time period of 7x7 weeks of years (490 years).
The 2300 year prophecy began with a time cycle that was based on shavu'ot (Pentecost).
In the year Jesus died, shavu'ot ended in real time when the Holy Spirit came at Pentecost.
- The Sacrifices.
Since Christ must only be sacrificed once, then all sacrifices must occur on the day the Lamb was slain.
God acts when the feast sabbath occurs on the Sabbath day.
- Circumcision Without Hands (Legal). Christ shed His blood without torture.
This occurred at the foundation of the earth.
The Lamb was slain at the foundation of the world "without hands".
That is, He was not killed or mutilated but offered Himself freely as He did in Gethsemane.
There, great drops of blood poured out of His pores through sweating.
- Circumcision With Hands (Illegal).
This was Christ being crucified or "cut off" at the cross in a process that broke all the laws on Calvary.
The only thing that Jesus accomplished on Calvary was to pay the ransom.
We already had forgiveness since the creation.
- The Feasts.
While God acts when the feast Sabbaths merge with the weekly Sabbaths, not every one is significant.
- Passover (7 x 70). 490 years from the fall of Babylon until the Gentiles. 3.5 years before was the crucifixion.
Nisan 14 was Tishri 10. Jesus was selected and paid the debt for our redemption by substitution.
Nisan 15 (Death). Jesus gave us rest from sin.
Nisan 21 (High Priest). After 7 days in heaven Jesus was officially our High Priest who give rest from sinning.
- Pentecost (7 X 7 x 40). 40 jubilees after the crucifixion in 31 AD ended in 1991. 1994 came after the Gospel went to the Gentiles in 34 AD. It was the third year when tithe was to be given to the poor.
- Tabernacles (7 x 144). The feast of Tabernacles will last for 1008 years, with the millennium in the middle.
There are three sabbaths during this time, the 1 weekly Sabbath and 2 feast Sabbaths.
|Sixth Year (Year 48)
||Land Sabbath (Year 49)
||Jubilee (Year 50)
||7 Last Plagues (1 Year)
|| Millennium (1000 Years)
Tishri 15 (Rapture). It is a feast Sabbath. This is the day when we will officially have no pain or sorrow.
Tishri 21 (Hell Fire). This is the feast Sabbath on a Friday.
This is the day when sinners are destroyed and the righteous will have complete rest.
However the sinners will finally have rest at the end of the day. It is not a case of rejoicing so it is not a feast. They are sinners lost, but there shpuld no rejoice.
Tishri 22 (Shemini Atzeret). This Sabbath celebrates the first day when the sinners are at rest and we are at rest.
The creation of the new earth on the first week day.
The sons of God will sing for joy.
God also acts when Hannukah occurs on a Sunday. It is a new beginning.
- Seven Times Plus One (8 Days).
The eighth day (new beginning) is hiding as a chiastic structure reversed.
Passover begins with One plus 7 days. All other feasts end with 7 days/weeks plus One.
- Circumcision: Seven Days Plus One. A woman is unclean for 7days until the 8th day when her son is circumcised.
- Passover And 7 Days of Unleavened Bread. On the first day the Lamb is killed then for seven days the people eat unleavened bread.
The first Passover was the Lamb slain at the foundation of the world.
So the first day of the feast of unleavened bread must have been the first Sabbath.
- 49 Days: 7 Weeks Plus Pentecost. The people counted 7 weeks until the beginning of the eighth week.
- 14 Days: 7 Days Plus 3 Days (Rosh Hashannah - Yom Kippur) + 4 Days To Tabernacles.
Tishri 1 to 10 up to day 14 exhibits the same pattern. They are not feast days but Tishri 15 to 21 is, then Tishri 22 is the new beginning.
- Tabernacles And The Eighth Day. For 7 days they lived in temporarry shelters and on the eighth day it begins a new cycle of Torah reading.
- 7000 Years Plus Forever. For 7000 years sin exists, then at th beginning of the eight a new earth is created. Even though Christ died 2000 years ago sin still exists.
Even after the Second coming, sin and the curse still exists. It is only in the 8000th year that sin is wiped out.
- The Sanctuary Is Raised. After constructing the sanctuary for a year, they raised it up on Nisan 1 14 days before the anniversary of the Exodus in time for the second passover.
And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, that the tabernacle was reared up.
(Exodus 40: 17)
And the Lord spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the tabernacle of the congregation, on the first day of the second month, in the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying,
(Numbers 1: 1)
And on the day that the tabernacle was reared up the cloud covered the tabernacle, namely, the tent of the testimony: and at even there was upon the tabernacle as it were the appearance of fire, until the morning.
(Numbers 9: 15)
- The First Passover.
Everyone was required to celebrate the Passover or they would be cut off.
But the man that is clean, and is not in a journey, and forbeareth to keep the passover, even the same soul shall be cut off from among his people: because he brought not the offering of the Lord in his appointed season, that man shall bear his sin.
(Numbers 9: 13)
- Unleavened Bread. Jesus removed the sins of the world
- Crucifixion. Jesus caused the sacrifices to cease. We had rest.
- Oblation (Shavu'ot). He caused the grain offering to cease. The promise of a resurrection.
- Defiled By The Dead. There was only one exception. They did not treat Passover as trivial and refused to come.
Those who were defiled by necessary duty for the dead and those who are on a far journey.
Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If any man of you or of your posterity shall be unclean by reason of a dead body, or be in a journey afar off, yet he shall keep the passover unto the Lord.
The fourteenth day of the second month at even they shall keep it, and eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.
They shall leave none of it unto the morning, nor break any bone of it: according to all the ordinances of the passover they shall keep it.
(Numbers 9: 10-12)
The people of earth are the only planet that meets these criteria.
We are defiled with death. We are infected with leperosy and are shut out.
We are a far way off because of our exile and it is a long way home.
- First Passover. This was when the Lamb was slain at the foundation of the world.
- Defiled By Death. After Adam and Eve sinned and we were sentenced to death.
- Second Passover. At the crucifixion we were cleansed from death, the first purification on the third day.
Jesus purified us by His blood.
The purification by water is the work of the Holy Spirit by the process of writing the law in our hearts.
That one shall purify himself from uncleanness with the water on the third day and on the seventh day, and then he will be clean; but if he does not purify himself on the third day and on the seventh day, he will not be clean.
(Numbers 19: 12)
- Second Coming. On the seventh day is the second purification at the millennium.
- The Second Tithe.
In an agricultural society tithe is based on the annual cycle of the harvest at the feasts.
The second and third tithe are tithe of the tithes and are God's treasure solely counted and distributed among the priests or Levites and some are given to the poor.
We are not to eat the second tithe (cereals, oil) outside Jerusalem, and spend the second tithe on anything except food and drink, nor eat the second tithe unclean or in mourning in Jerusalem.
After the third year, Jesus, the bridegroom, is here and we should not mourn.
- Eat Tithe In Jerusalem (Day 1, 2, 4, 5).
To set apart the second tithe in the first, second, fourth and fifth years of the sabbatical cycle to be eaten by its owner in Jerusalem (Deut. 14:22)
22 Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year.
(Deut 14: 22)
- The Poor (Third and Sixth Day).
They set apart the second tithe in the third and sixth year of the sabbatical cycle for the poor and to spend money only on food and drink (Deut. 14: 14, 28-29).
The Second Tithe is not to be eaten in a state of uncleanness or in mourning, even in Jerusalem until the tithe had been redeemed (Deut. 26:14).
And the disciples of John and of the Pharisees used to fast: and they come and say unto him, Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not?
And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.
(Mark 2: 18-19)
- New Earth: Purified (Third and Seventh Day).
On the seventh day everything will be completed.
The new earth will be created for one week beginning on Sunday.
The wicked will die on Friday, the same day that Jesus died.
Tishri 21 is a Sabbath on the last day of the wicked but there will be no rejoicing.
This date is only a guess. Since we cannot have both days falling on these dates in the same year since the month is not 28 days.
Then one will be true for the Spring feast and the next for the fall feast.
The Foolishness Of God Is Wisdom.
For it is written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the cleverness of the clever I will set aside.
Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of the age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?
(1 Corinthians 1: 19)
