SEMINAR - THE SIGN OF YONAH
Find students and teach them the Covenant
3 days & 3 nights ~ THE SIGN OF YONAH
THE NUTS & BOLTS OF THE MATTER
The significance of the "3 days and 3 nights" can be that it represents a SEPARATION from the world, a type of BREAK, interlude, or severing between worlds. Scripture gives many examples of putting 3 days' distance between people or places. The first time the phrase occurs is 1 Sam. 30:12, describing that Da'ud had not eaten or drank for this duration. Also, before the priest would allow Da'ud and his men to eat the qodesh food, he asked if they had been without women for 3 days. Some significance is given to 3 days' time in many other texts. But the most famous of all is the correlation between Yonah and Yahushua, called the SIGN OF YONAH.
The name "Yonah" means DOVE
Yonah lived during the reign of the northern king, Yeroboam
(reigned 790-749 BCE) .
Yonah is a “type”, as the sent one, raised from the dead, and carrying salvation to the Gentiles.

Mashiach Yahushua aligns Himself with this prophet
in that He would give one sign: the sign of Yonah.

“And the word of Yahuah came to Yonah son of Amittai, saying,
“Arise, go to Ninuah, the great city, and cry out against it, for their evils have come up before Me.”
But Yonah rose up to flee to Tarshish from the presence of Yahuah, and went down to Yapho, and found a ship going to Tarshish. And he paid the fare, and went down into it, to go with them to Tarshish from the presence of Yahuah.
And Yahuah sent out a great wind on the sea, and there was a great storm on the sea, so that the ship was thought to be broken up.
And the seamen were afraid, and each one cried out to his mighty one, and threw the cargo which was in the ship into the sea, to lighten the load. But Yonah had gone down into the lowest parts of the ship, and he lay down, and was fast asleep.
And the captain came to him, and said to him, “What do you mean, sleeper? Arise, cry out to your Elohim, if so be that Elohim shall think about us, so that we do not perish.”
And they said to each other, “Come, and let us cast lots, so that we know for whose sake this evil has come upon us.” So they cast lots, and the lot fell on Yonah.
So they said to him, “Please explain to us! For whose sake is this evil upon us? What is your occupation? And where do you come from?
What is your country? And from what people are you?”
And he said to them, “I am a Heḇrew. And I am fearing Yahuah, the Elohim of the heavens, who made the sea and the dry land.”
And the men were exceedingly afraid, and said to him, “Why have you done this?” For the men knew that he fled from the presence of Yahuah, for he had informed them.
And they said to him, “What are we to do to you to make the sea calm for us?” For the sea was growing more stormy.
And he said to them, “Take me and throw me into the sea, so that the sea becomes calm for you. For I know that this great storm is because of me.”
However, the men rowed hard to bring the ship to land, but were unable, for the sea continued to grow more stormy against them.
And they cried out to Yahuah and said, “We pray, O Yahuah, please, let us not perish for this man’s life, and do not lay on us innocent blood.
For You, O Yahuah, have done as it pleased You.”
Then they took Yonah and threw him into the sea, and the sea stopped raging.
And the men feared Yahuah exceedingly, and brought an offering to Yahuah and made vows.
But Yahuah appointed a great fish to swallow Yonah. And Yonah was in the stomach of the fish three days and three nights.” Yonah 1:1-17
understood by not obeying Yahuah he would DIE, but Yahuah searched the motive of
his heart; Yonah’s desire was to
see the destruction of
(resulting in redemption from the death penalty).

“And Elohim spoke all these Words:
Elohim, who brought you out of
You shall have no other elohim before My face.
2. You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the Earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, Yahuah your Elohim, am a jealous Elohim, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand [ generations] of those who love Me and keep My Commandments.
3. You shall not cast (NASA, send) the Name of Yahuah your Elohim to ruin(SHOAH, destruction), for Yahuah will not hold anyone guiltless who casts His Name to ruin.
4. Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it qodesh.
Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to Yahuah your Elohim.
On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates. For in six days Yahuah made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and He rested on the seventh day.
Therefore Yahuah blessed the Sabbath day and made it qodesh.
5. Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land Yahuah your Elohim is giving you.
6. You shall not murder.
(Two words: LO RATSACH, NO KILL)
7. You shall not adulterate

8. You shall not steal.
(Two words: LO GANAB, NO STEAL)
9. You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.
10. You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

TEACHING THE COVENANT TO THE NATIONS
“Therefore, go and make taught ones of all the nations, immersing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Set-apart Spirit,
teaching them to guard all that I have commanded you. And see, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” MattithYahu 28:19,20
Yahushua is the Kohen ha’Gadol,
When Yahushua said
“love your enemies”,
He spoke of not only the Samaritans (10 northern tribes of
The Covenant teaches this love, so to withhold the Covenant from any people is the same as denying them life, and being aloof to their destruction.
Yahushua was “like” Yonah is several unique ways.
“Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered, saying, ‘Teacher, we wish to see a sign from You.’
But He answering, said to them,
‘A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign shall be given to it except the sign of the prophet Yonah.
For as Yonah was three days and three nights in the stomach of the great fish, so shall the Son of Aḏam be three days and three nights in the heart of the Earth.
Men of Ninuah shall stand up in the judgment with this generation and condemn it, because they repented at the preaching of Yonah, and look, a greater than Yonah is here.’” MattithYahu 12:38-41
Both were sent with a message of repentance.
Both issued prophetic warnings of future destruction.
Both were in a “belly” for 3 days and 3 nights.
Yonah thought solely of Yisrael,
and was not concerned for the nations, particularly Yisrael’s greatest enemy,
Yahushua was sent “first” to the
lost tribes, the “house of

“I, Yahuah, have called You (Yisrael) in righteousness, and I take hold of Your hand and guard You, and give You for a covenant to a people, for a light to the gentiles,
to open blind eyes, to bring out prisoners from the prison, those who sit in darkness from the prison house.
“I am Yahuah, that is My Name, and My esteem I do not give to another, nor My praise to idols.” YeshaYahu (Is.) 42:6-8
Speaking of Yahushua specifically:
“and He says, “Shall it be a small matter for You to be My Servant to raise up the tribes of Yaʽaqoḇ, and to bring back the preserved ones of Yisrael? And I shall give You as a light to the gentiles, to be My deliverance to the ends of the Earth!”
YeshaYahu (Is.) 49:6
“The Spirit of the Master Yahuah is upon Me, because Yahuah has anointed Me to bring good news (besorah) to the meek. He has sent Me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim release to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound,
to proclaim the acceptable year of Yahuah, and the day of vengeance of our Elohim, to comfort all who mourn,
to appoint unto those who mourn in Tsiyon: to give them embellishment for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. And they shall be called trees of righteousness, a planting of Yahuah, to be adorned.
And they shall rebuild the old ruins, raise up the former wastes. And they shall restore the ruined cities, the wastes of many generations.
And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the foreigner be your ploughmen and your vinedressers.
But you shall be called, ‘Priests of Yahuah,’ ‘Servants of our Elohim’ shall be said of you. You shall consume the strength of the gentiles, and boast in their esteem.
Instead of your shame and reproach, they rejoice a second time in their portion. Therefore they take possession a second time in their land, everlasting joy is theirs.
“For I, Yahuah, love right-ruling; I hate robbery for burnt offering.
And I shall give their reward in truth, and make an everlasting covenant with them.
“And their seed shall be known among the gentiles, and their offspring in the midst of the peoples. All who see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed Yahuah has blessed.”
I greatly rejoice in Yahuah, my being exults in my Elohim. For He has put garments of deliverance on Me, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
For as the earth brings forth its bud, as the garden causes the seed to shoot up, so the Master Yahuah causes righteousness and praise to shoot up before all the nations!” YeshaYahu 61:1-11

TRUTH OF THE MATTER
RE: Queries & Comments Article, Biblical Archaeological Review Jan / Feb 2008
This is to address a fundamental “stronghold” concerning the mysterious “3 days and 3 nights” discussed by
a reader (Gene Ramsey,
ONLY TWO NIGHTS (referenced article, from Queries & Comments, Biblical Archaeological Review, Jan / Feb 2008)
This is the answer that Gene Ramsey was really looking for:
Most theologians miss the obvious, simple meaning to the text concerning how Yahushua ha’Mashiach was in the heart of the Earth for “three days and three nights” because they force the concept of “preparation day” to only refer to their Roman “Friday”.
When understood within the
This fifteenth day is an “annual” Shabbath (rest day), so the 14th of every first moon is always termed a “preparation day”. The Greek text captures the idea of the approaching day as a “High Shabbath” in the word “MEGAS” (G3173), Yn. 19:31. It has nothing to do with the SHABUA (week) of 7 days, only the moon.
The “stronghold” opinion that the term “preparation day” is a “Friday” is simply a gross, long-lived error. The actual day of the week is irrelevant, but we know from researching it thoroughly that the day of Yahushua’s impalement was on the 4th day of the week, several hours after sunrise (this would be the Roman/Celtic day called “Woden’s Daeg”).
Carefully counting the “days” and “nights” from the time Yahushua was entombed, we find the following chain of events:
Nakdimon and Yosef took Yahushua’s body from the tree at the close of the day, just prior to sunset, because the approaching sunset signaled the arrival of the first day of Matsah (Unleavened Bread) ABIB 15, a “high” day:
Woden’s Daeg at sunset began night #1 (the next sunrise began the day #1)
Thor’s Daeg at sunset began night #2 (the next sunrise began the day #2)
Frigga Daeg at sunset began night #3 (the next sunrise began the day #3) -- total: 3 days and 3 nights.
At sunset as the weekly Shabbath drew to a close, Yahushua rose from the dead. The discovery of His resurrection was not until the following morning when Miryam of Migdal arrived on the first day of the week and found the stone had been removed, and the body was missing.
This morning was very special, since Yahushua (as Kohen haGadol) would ascend before the Father (Yahuah) as the “wave sheaf offering”. This is why He would not allow Miryam to touch Him, because He had not yet presented Himself as the wave sheaf offering. His resurrected body WAS the “First-fruits” offering, what the barley sheaf had represented;
another overlooked but vital part of what was being fulfilled.
The timing of
these things indicates that Yahushua and the 12 were observing Passover
at the beginning of the 14th day of the moon, and it was a Tyr’s Daeg
evening/night. The confusion is not helped by the fact that the Roman days
begin at midnight, instead of the proper time, at sunset. This
misunderstanding by Christianity has been the reason that many of us have often
said they can’t count – but it’s really only a stronghold of false teaching, and
being removed from the true faith of the Mashiach for so long. They have a
“form” of piousness, but deny its authority over them; they have no
Passover, festival of Matsah, Shabouth, Yom Teruah, Yom Kaphar, or Sukkoth - the
to come. By referencing everything
around “Sun-day”, they miss the foundation because they did not build on it in
the first place.
They built their “matrix” patterned after
sun-worshippers, and abandoned the festivals of
Passover is a memorial of Yahushua's death.
The three days and three nights in the tomb are the "sign of Yonah", proving by this sign He is the Mashiach.
The resurrected body of Yahushua is the offering of "First-fruits", also known as the "Wave-sheaf offering",
and this is why it happened the "morrow after the Shabbath", or what Christians call "Sun-day" morning".
The resurrection was being "rehearsed" by the High Priests of Israel each time they cut the "First-fruits" of barley and waved it before Yahuah. Yahushua made it a reality, bringing an end to ceremonial offerings, and becoming our Kohen haGadol.
“In the first month, on the fourteenth day (ABIB 14) of the month, between the evenings, is the Passover to Yahuah.
And on the fifteenth day (ABIB 15) of this month is the Festival of Unleavened Bread to Yahuah – seven days you eat unleavened bread.
On the first day you have a set-apart gathering, you do no servile work.
And you shall bring an offering made by fire to Yahuah for seven days. On the seventh day is a set-apart gathering, you do no servile work.’
And Yahuah spoke to Mosheh, saying,
‘Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, and you shall say to them, ‘When you come into the land which I give you, and shall reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the first-fruits of your harvest to the priest.
And he shall wave the sheaf before Yahuah, for your acceptance. On the morrow after the Sabbath the priest waves it.
And on that day when you wave the sheaf, you shall prepare a male lamb a year old, a perfect one, as a burnt offering to Yahuah,
and its grain offering: two-tenths of an ĕphah of fine flour mixed with oil, an offering made by fire to Yahuah, a sweet fragrance, and its drink offering: one-fourth of a hin of wine.
And you do not eat bread or roasted grain or fresh grain until the same day that you have brought an offering to your Elohim – a law forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
And from the morrow after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, you shall count for yourselves: seven completed Sabbaths.
Until the morrow after the seventh Sabbath you count fifty days, then you shall bring a new grain offering to Yahuah.”
Lev. / Wayyiqra 23:5-16
Teaching that the “wave-sheaf offering” is done on ABIB 16 is an error, because on ABIB 16 Yahushua was in the tomb, fulfilling the sign of Yonah.
He healed the sick, raised the dead, walked on water, was dead for three days and three nights, and rose from the dead.
