Shadow Of Things To Come

Redemption Plan In The Festivals Of Israel:

Shadows Of Redemption 
At Kol. 2:17 we read of the
"shadow of things to come." This has been poorly understood until these last days before the return of Yahusha. 
The redemption plan of Yahuah’s people (which includes those formerly gentile persons engrafted by joining with Yahuah through the Covenant) is outlined (shadowed) in the annual appointments we are commanded to observe each year: the moedim. 
These moedim are now understood to be REDEMPTIVE festivals that make use of agricultural symbols.

As we observe them year after year, they teach us Yahusha's process and His involvement in our redemption. 

If you watch The Reapers on youtube it will explain a great deal about the harvest festivals ahead of us.

As the day of Yahuah approaches, we need to comfort one another and all those around us with these words: 


"Here is the endurance of the set-apart ones; here are those who are guarding the Commandments of Alahim and the belief of Yahusha."    

Neither unbelieving Yahudim or Christians can claim to be these "first-fruits" described in the words of the verse above.  (REVELATION 14:12)

“Blessed are those doing His Commands, so that the authority shall be theirs unto the tree of life and to enter through the gates into the city." 


Scripture doesn't say,

"Blessed (happy) are those practicing the Talmud."

The Talmud did not exist in the days of Yahusha, Paul, Luke, and the rest of the Talmidim (students).

It was the yoke of the "oral law," the traditions of the fathers, and Yahusha nor any of His followers had anything to do with it.

There is still a division over what some perceive as traditions "orally" handed-down.
Every Word of Yahuah was written, and read aloud to the people. The oral instructions, or traditions of the fathers, was the paradigm Paul said was his former way of living by.

He called it "Yahudaism."
"For you have heard of my former way of life in Yahudaism, how intensely I persecuted the assembly of Alahim, and ravaged it." - Gal 1:13. Note the phrase, "former way of life."

Rabbinic Judaism is the "teachings of the fathers."

This yoke (teaching authority) of men is what is being described here:
Acts 15:10:
“Now then, why do you try Alahim by putting a yoke on the neck of the taught ones which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?"
It is what was added (the leaven of men's teachings) that Yahusha called "old wine."
The traditions of men are the object lesson from Matsah (Unleavened Bread). We must become unleavened, purging the teaching authorities and corrupting influences of men's ideas which block the pure and clean objective of love, which the Torah's goal is to teach us.


The Greatest Truth Is The Least Taught
We are delivered from our crimes against His Covenant by Yahusha's shed blood (Acts 20:28), and we are now saved by His life (Romans 5:10).
His death, without His resurrection and ascension, would make your statement quite true.

Now that we have received His life in us, He brings us the ability to perceive how sinning against the Torah makes Him feel, and we do not want to sin. Until we receive Him, we cannot obey, nor do we want to obey (Romans 8:7). The mind of the flesh will not submit to Yahuah's Torah. Our obedience must not be confused with our justification however. The "law" Paul speaks of often refers to sacrifices under the old priesthood. This is the commonly misunderstood concept in Paul's writings, such as Galatians.
Which of the Commandments that teach us how to love do you suppose is impossible for us to obey, or is even difficult to obey, once a person has Yahusha and knows it trains us how to love one another?


Be Ready

Yahusha could return for us at any moment He chooses.

If we know Him, we are guarding and teaching His Commandments. If not, we do not know Him.

Many years ago I asked Yahusha if we would be able to predict anything about His return, and all I received from His Words are in this Scripture:

Mt. 24:36-39: “But concerning that yom and the hour no one knows, not even the messengers of the shamayim, but My Father only. And as the Yomim of Noak, so also shall the coming of the Son of Adam be. For as they were in the Yomim before the flood, eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the yom that Noak entered into the ark, and they did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also shall the coming of the Son of Adam be.”  (BYNV)

Mt. 24:44-47: “Because of this, be ready too, for the Son of Adam is coming at an hour when you do not expect Him. Who then is a trustworthy and wise servant, whom his master set over his household, to give them food in season? Blessed is that servant whom his master, having come, shall find so doing. Truly, I say to you that he shall set him over all his possessions.”

The expectation and watchful readiness of His return is what is overlooked by the predictors, and they tend to focus on knowing the “when” far more than the “doing.”

If we watch and expect Yahusha at all times, we know the One Who knows, and what He said, so we will always be ready.

I have never read any of Yahusha’s Words that told us to predict His return, but rather to watch and be ready at all times. The Sun will go dark once, and the Moon will turn blood red once. Unbelievers, and those who did not prepare for His return, will both be caught in what Malaki 4, Psalm 91, and Yual (Joel) 2 describe, and the cause for this is described at 2 Timothy 4. 

The unfulfilled appointments in the 7th moon point to the culmination of the whole Redemption Plan, and these features weigh heavily:

1. 7th month is the harvest time referred to in Yahusha’s parables

2. The last trump – day of the shout of the chief messenger – raising of the dead who are in Yahusha, warning the inhabitants of judgment

3. Messengers sent out in judgment, removing and burning the weeds first (Yom Kafar, 10th day of 7th Month elements are burned with fervent heat),

4. taking the wheat into His barn - the marriage feast of the Lamb, Sukkoth, the household tent for the bride (begins on 15th day of 7th Month)

The traditions of men are our stumbling block, and those who teach us have led us into confusion.

The message of the kingdom is not heard in any of the four "blood moon" books being sold by the millions everywhere on the planet.

Yahusha refers to these deceptions in the later part of Mt. 24, calling the promoters of false expectations “hypocrites.”

Mt. 24 brings this up in Yahusha’s Words concerning His coming:

Mt. 24:14: “And this besorah of the reign shall be proclaimed in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end shall come.”
