Another assumption which many calculators find attractive is that the timing chosen by God will coincide with Jewish religious festivals. This gives
them an excuse to pin their predictions to a specific day in the calendar. Once again, we don’t have any real warrant for this theory. The purpose
of these festival days is to celebrate things that God has done
The Fall festivals, Trumpets through the Last Day; God sets the dates for these at Lev 23: if the purpose of these days appointed by God (these are
called the LORD's festivals at Lev 23- they are not called the Jews festivals) is to celebrate things God has done- what pre-Sinai things do these
celebrate? Moreover, why does the apostle at Col 2:17 call them "a shadow of things to come"?
Day of Passover. The first of the Spring appointments: 14th day of the 1st month; an unblemished lamb sacrificed. Paul said this: "1Co 5:7 For even
Christ our passover is sacrificed for us"; does anyone have a guess as to when Christ our Passover was sacrificed? Any guesses at what time of
Day of Firstfruits. Begins the Spring harvest: first day of the week following Passover. The firstfruits of the Spring harvest are presented before
the Lord. The apostle says this: "1Co 15:23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits"; okay does anyone have a guess as to when Christ
became the firstfruits? Any guesses at what time of year?
Day of Pentecost. Ends the Spring harvest: 49 days after Firsfruits. Celebration. Close of appointments. Okay does anyone know of anything that
happened on Pentecost that year? Anything big happening on Pentecost? Something about baptism and fire and tongues.
but we won’t find anything in scripture to support the idea that God will plan things the other way round.
Whoever wrote the four gospels is clearly demonstrating that God indeed plans things the other way around. The Spring festivals are clearly prophetic
of the culmination of the first coming: now, as the Spring festivals are to the first coming; the Fall festivals are to ___________________. (Pretend
its a college entrance question)
Day of Trumpets. 1st day of 7th month. First of the Fall festivals. The blowing of trumpets throughout the land. Only festival appointed to a new
moon, and so only festivals impossible to determine exact day and hour that it starts: only festival one can miss if no actively WATCHING: trumpets
sounding? Sound familiar? *cough* Rev *cough*
Day of Judgment. 10th day of 7th month. Judgment. Nuff said. Judgment day? Sound familiar? *cough* Rev *cough*
Tabernacles. 15th-22nd of 7th month. Fruits and grapes gathered in clusters. Winepresses tread. Celebration. Close of Fall festivals. Clusters of
grapes? Winepress? Sound familiar? *cough* Rev *cough*
The Last Day. Final appointment of Fall festivals.
Joh 7:37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
Come and drink? Sound familiar? *cough* Rev *cough*
Re 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him
take the water of life freely.
Note it isn't possible to know the year as plainly as the day/month, but I will plainly say, all of the false prophets have clearly done their work in
jading people to the knowledge of the timing; but then again, Jesus warned Jerusalem:
Lu 19:42 Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine
eyes. For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,
And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou
knewest not the time of thy visitation
All because they did't know the time.
