Mitzvah P39: Numbers 28:3 - On the twice Daily Burnt, tamid, offerings
v.1-4 “And YHWH spoke unto Moshe, saying: Command the sons of Yisrael, and say unto them: My offering, My food for My offerings made by fire, of a sweet savour unto Me, shall ye observe to offer unto Me in its due season. And thou shalt say unto them: This is the offering made by fire which ye shall bring unto YHWH: he-lambs of the first year without blemish, two day by day, (for) a continual burnt-offering. The one lamb shalt thou offer in the morning, and the other lamb shalt thou offer at dusk.”
Command the children of Yisrael:
We, the children of Yisrael after our spiritual birth, are committed to His command when He speaks to our hearts to obey all what is written that is a spiritual production in growth of spiritual life.
YHWH's food is the spiritual food thru His Word of Life that we all live eternally in His kingdom, for there are no other foods, not earthly food, that can preserve our lives, but to the timeline limit to the fleshly lives under the slavery of sin or lawlessness that ends in death.
YHWH’s offerings are for those who seek the forgiveness of what they have done the works of lawlessness, possessed by the kingdom of darkness (Satan), that are against them from entering the Kingdom of His holiness, so that they can be sanctified by His blood shredding in their hearts to restore back to His kingdom.
My food for My offerings made by fire:
YHWH’s food are the spiritual food which are the works of Life to restore those who seek for the forgiveness from their previous works of ignorance or lawlessness so they can come to the purification thru the washing of His blood in their hearts (altars) made by His consuming fire to consume all the works of lawlessness that lead to their death and bring them back to His Kingdom.
Ge. 8:21 “And YHWH smelled a sweet savour; and YHWH said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more ever thing living, as I have done.”; Ezek. 20:41-44 “As a sweet savor will I accept you, when I bring you out from the peoples, and gather you out of the countries in which you have been scattered; and I will be sanctified in you in the sight of the nations....”
2 Cor. 2:15-17 “For we are a sweet savor of the Messiah to YHWH, in them that are saved, and in them that perish; to the one a savor from death to death; to the other a savor from life to life. And who is sufficient for these things? For we are not as the many, corrupting the word of YHWH: but as of sincerity, but as of YHWH, in the sight of Elohim, speak we in the Messiah.”; Eph. 5:2 “And walk in love, as Messiah also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to Elohim for a sweetsmelling savour.”
We are the a sweet savour of the Body of Messiah pleasing YHWH for our hearts are in the works of purity separating from the works of death.
Shall ye observe to offer unto Me in its due season:
You shall be called of Him who touch your heart when the time of repentance or heart change comes in the preparation of your purification to offer yourself as a spiritual offering to Him (Rom. 12:1-2).
Thou shalt say unto them:
You, the spiritual birth, are to say to them who come out of the kingdoms of earth to hear His Word of Life, when you are called to preach to those who are hungry for His food.
This is the offering made by fire which ye shall bring unto YHWH:
Our spiritual offering is made by His consuming fire as to accept our works of holiness brought to Him, for the purification separate our spiritual works from the fleshly works we had in our lives.
Ex. 29:38-42 “Now this is that which thou shalt offer upon the altar; two lambs of the first year day by day continually...”
Luke 10:3 “Go your ways: behold, I sent you forth as lambs among wolves.”; John 10:1-9 “...he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep...I am the door...”; 21:15 “...Feed my lambs.”; Rom. 8: 36-37 “Even as it is written, For your sake we are killed all the day long; We were accounted as sheep for the slaughter. No, in all these things, we are more then conquerors, through Him that loved us.” The lambs without the blemish are the true servants of YHWH “for as the sufferings of haMashiyach abound to us, even so our comfort also increases through the Messiah.” [1 Cor. 1:5]
Two male lambs are the inwardness and outwardness to purify. Matt 23:25-28
One female lamb is the Body of Messiah (His Bride) purified from the works of filthiness/ uncleanness.
The he-lamb is the male lamb (the Word of purification) that can be accepted in His sight. Yahushua, the ha-lamb, is the purification of our hearts by His blood (inwardness) so that we, the Bride (the female lamb), can be sanctified in His holiness (outwardness).
Beware of false lambs:
Ps. 37:20 “But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of YHWH shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.”
Matt. 8:15 “Beward of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.”
We, the true lambs of our Shepherd, know the wicked fruits of those who are the false lambs acting like the wolves deceving us in the words of falsehood.
Lamb of Elohim:
Isa. 53:7 “He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before his shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.”
John 1:29 “...Behold the Lamb of Elohim, which taketh away the sin of the world.”; Rev. 5:6 “...stood a Lamb as it had been slain...”, 12 “...Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.”; 7:14 “...These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”; 12:11 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
We, the followers of our Lamb of Elohim, do what He commands for He takes care of us and feeds us when we are in need of what He provides us.
The first year is the year of cycle to complete where the beginning and the end meets, in preparing for the next cycle of maturation in spiritual growth. The conception of the year for His Kingdom of warmth (Life) is the cycle of warmth from what is planted out of a seed (word of life) at the beginning of warmth to the full/mature production of seed at the end of warmth. For the kingdom of coldness (death), the cycle of coldness of the year is not to produce anything.
Ex. 12:5 “Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year...”
Eph. 5:25-28 “...he might present it to himself, a glorious assembly, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish...”; 1 Peter 1:19-21 “But with the precious blood of Messiah, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, who by him do beieve in Elohim, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory: that your faith and hope might be in Elohim.” Heb. 9:14 “how much more will the blood of the Messiah, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to Elohim, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living Elohim?”
His Word of Life without a blemish (perfection) can only cleanse your heart from the works of wickedness. Without the blemish is the only one who serves Him in His holiness because nothing blemished can be found in His holy kingdom.
He-lambs of the first year without blemish:
The he-lamb (Word of Life) must be without blemish (purified) within the year of cycle where the beginning and the end meet perfectly, while the blemish can not get its beginning and its end meet perfectly because of the corruption of the lawlessness that breaks apart from the way of Life in resulting in death. We are the followers of our he-lamb (Yahushua the Lamb) who wash our hearts in the purification to put away all the works of lawlessness.
Only the unblemished heart can serve YHWH eternally. All the blemished hearts require the law of purification through their repentance awakening from their sleep in the works of death, otherwise they die vainly.
Two day by day:
Two lambs (The Word of beginning and the end) are in the eternal agreement in the trials of our daily lives, where the inwardness and the outwardness must be agreed on according to the Word of Life, otherwise they would be apart from the all the truths. Every deed of act (outwardness) must be performed according to the word of deed spoken out of the mouth (inwardness).
Continual burnt-offering (tamid):
It gives us our daily continual prayers, forgiveness, mediation, giving thanks and praises, continual passion for wisdom/truth from the above while purifying in our hearts (consummation of dead works in Fire), but if the hypocrisy is found in our hearts, YHWH is not pleased with our prayers nor does hear our prayer requests (Heb. 10:6-8). Remember the Pharisees offered long prayers hypocritically and repetitiously looking at a meek sinner in a very brief prayer who was shameful repenting of his foolishness and was granted for the forgiveness unto righteousness (Luke 18:9-14). Daniel prayed thrice daily (Dan. 6:10) so do His chosen ones in seeking the Wisdom/way of righteousness.
Two burnt offerings daily:
Two burnt offerings at the beginning of day/Light and end of day: The Lamb, He is the beginning and the end (Rev. 22:13) of The Light (Day). He is the Door for those whose heart are without a blemish enter into the kingdom of Eternal Light. The two burnt offerings are like two cherubim guarding the mercy-seat of YHWH sits on [Ps. 99:1; Heb. 9:5] for He is a consuming fire, destroying the dead works [Deut. 4:24; 9:3; Heb. 12:29].
Yahushua, the Lamb of Life, begins with His blood shed to purify the hearts of men upon their repentances of the works of lawlessness, and ends with the spiritual births brought back to His Kingdom. We have only one Lamb to die for our sins so He is worthy to be crowned as the eternal King of all holiness.
The morning is the beginning of the Light after the purification of the works of darkness in our hearts. All must throw the works of darkness at the evening (beginning of the darkness) in order to bury our flesh so that we, the Spirit birth, can be raised in the Light (Yahushua).
Rev. 22:16 “I, Yahushua, have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the assemblies. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.”
The morning is the work of Light. Yahushua, the morning star, is with those who have their hearts purified after all dead works are consumed in the fire overnight. Satan was the morning star but is fallen down to the kingdom of cursedness. Isa. 14:12 “How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, you who have weakened the nations!”
One lamb shalt thou offer in the morning:
One lamb (Yahushua our Messiah) is the only one to purify our hearts in the beginning of the day (Light) that comes in our spiritual lives.
Other lamb is the end of the flesh (works of darkness) as to put the works of flesh to death in order to receive the forgiveness from the wrongdoings so that we can receive the new life in the Light to come. Yahushua came in the flesh to humble Himself among us and died in our sins so that He can raise us in the Light. He is the beginning and the end, the first and the last (Rev. 22:13).
Other lamb shalt thou offer at dusk:
Other lamb is the Passover lamb offered to be slain on the evening (dusk) to put away our sins (works of darkness) and then is to be resurrected in the morning (beginning of Life). The beginning and the end of Life is protected from the works of lawlessness (darkness), where the beginning and the end meet in the cycle of Life.
The end is where the beginning is:
Here is the saying 18 of the Gospel of Thomas: "The disciples said to Yahushua, 'Tell us, how will our end come?' 'Yahushua said, 'Have you found the beginning, then, that you are looking for the end? You see, the end will be where the beginning is. 'Blessed to the one who stands at the beginning: that one will know the end and will not taste death.'
This is a cycle where there is no beginning and no end. When are the end and the beginning? We all know the end of fleshly age is the harvest time (Matt. 13:39). The beginning is where the end is, in which they meet together. The fall of Adam is where the seeds fall from the Tree of Life into the ground of earth, because the sin cut the cycle of the Life like the cutting of the circle of string into the two ends (beginning point and end point). Yahushua is the beginning (Aleph) and the end (Taw) to put us back together in one cycle of Tree of Life. Yahushua opens the door (dalet) of His Name (YHDWH: Yahudah) to those who believe in His truths and closes the door to those who reject His truths, so He can put two points [two houses of Judah and Ephraim] (beginning and end) to become into the one (unending) eternal cycle of Life.
On the twice Daily Burnt, tamid, offerings (P39):
We do our offerings daily, first with the fleshly works we throw out, then we receive the forgiveness and purification in order to get in the next level of spiritual growth or maturity. Rom 12:1-2 tells us to renew our minds and hearts as we are the spiritual offerings to YHWH.
Mitzvah P40: Levitcus 6:13 - On Cohen ha Gadol’s (the high priest’s) twice daily meal offering (Lev. 6:20)
v.13-14 “This is the offering of Aharon and of his sons, which they shall offer unto YHWH in the day when he is anointed: the tenth part of an ephah of fine flour (for) a meal-offering perpetually, half of it in the morning, and half thereof in the evening . On a griddle it shall be made with oil; (when it is) soaked, thou shalt bring it in; twice baked, (as) a meal-offering in broken pieces, shall thou offer (it) (for) a sweet savour unto YHWH.” (Lev. 6:20-21)
Two young bullocks are the works of the Levitical atonement for our sins purified; two indicates the cycle of inwardness and outwardness (word and action): Hear the word and do it.
One ram is the consecration of spiritual mind (Levitical priesthood - Lev. 8).
Seven he-lambs are the completion (7 days) of purification from the washing of His blood in our hearts to enter YHWH’s Shabbat. The baptism of Holy Spirit restores 7 times back in the heart to the full purity from the fall of man (Genesis 3).
We are the spiritual offerings daily to YHWH once we are sanctified in His blood to wash away our sins (works of lawlessness) [Rom. 12:1-2].
They shall offer unto YHWH in the day:
The spiritual mind (Aharon) and the instructions of the Word (his sons) are communicated to us from YHWH as we, the spiritual minded, serve YHWH in all what is commanded of Him.
The anointment is the anointing of Holy Spirit given to the Spirit birth once he is sanctified with His blood to purify all works of lawlessness (corruption) so the Holy Spirit can dwell in the heart of the Spirit birth for the guidance of His teachings.
The tenth part (tithe) is the spiritual reproduction in the cycle of spiritual growth where you have the spiritual devotion in the heart to increase the spiritual level of maturity thru the study of His Law of Life. It is like the talents given to the Spirit minded to produce the works of Life to return to YHWH (Matt. 25).
Ephah, a measure:
Lev. 19:35-37 “Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in weight, or in measure. Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have: I am YHWH your Elohim, which brought you out of the land of Egypt. Therefore shall ye observe all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: I am YHWH.”; Jud. 6:19 “unleavened cakes of an ephah of flour...”; Ruth 2:17; 1 Sam. 1:24; 17:17 “an ephah of this parched corn...”; Isa. 5:10 “Yea, ten acres of vineyard shall yield one bath, and the seed of an homer shall yield an ephah.”; Eze 45:10-24 and 46:5-14 speak of the exact measures for the offerings.
Matt. 7:2 “For with what judgment he judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.”
The children of holiness are the just measures equally in His love, mercy, kindness by the eternal law of giving and receiving. Every good deed is measured back to what he does rightly in the eyes of YHWH. The tenth part (tithe) of the measure is the reproduction of spiritual life stored in its eternal cycle of sowing and reaping.
False measures and weights:
Am. 8:5 “...that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit? that we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes; yea, and sell the refuse (fraud) of the wheat?”; Zech. 5:6-10 “...this is a woman that sitteth in the midst o the ephah....This is wickedness. And he cast it into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof...”
Mark 10:19 “...Defraud not...”; 1 Cor. 6:7-8 “...Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?....ye do wrong, and defraud...”
The children of unholiness are the false measures and weights according to the works of falsificaiton or teachings of wickedness. Every evil deed is measured back to what he does in the works of deceit/falsehood.
Ex. 29:2 “And unleavened bread, and cakes unleavened tempered with oil, and wafers unleavened anointed with oil: of wheaten flour shalt thou make them.”; Lev. 2:2 “...take thereout his handful of the flour thereof, and of the oil thereof, with all the frankincense thereof; and the priest shall burn the memorial of it upon the altar, to be an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto YHWH.”; Jud. 6:19; 1 Sam. 28:24; 2 Sam. 17:28
The flour (workers of purification) come out of the wheat (Word of Life). The bread of Life is given to all the servants (workers of purification and holiness).
The children of purification are the fine flour particles equally in the just measures of YHWH that loves them for their works of purity and honesty.
When he is anointed: the tenth part of an ephah of fine flour:
When he is sanctified with the Word of Life (Bread of Life), the talent (tenth part) of the measurement is given to him who is to produce the spiritual maturity thru the study and mediation and teachings of His Law of Life. The fine flour is the smooth work of purity and honesty.
We, the spiritual servants, are His offerings perpetually, for we dwell in His Kingdom (Tabernacle) forever.
The evening is the end of the Light where the works of darkness are put to death in order to receive the purification from the works of lawlessness before the Light/morning (His holiness) can be given to those who seek the sanctification.
Half of it in the morning:
The measurement of the half of the tenth part is equally to the morning activity and the other half to the evening activity. Once the Spirit filled receives a gift (talent) of Holy Spirit at the beginning of his spiritual life on the earth and shall multiply it as much as twice, like to receive five talents at the beginning (morning) shall be given five more talents at the end of activity (evening). See Matt. 25 explanation of what the Savior expects of His devoted servants to do His will while living on the earth till their end of fleshly lives.
Half thereof in the evening:
The other half of tenth part at the end of activity (evening) is produced out of what the first half of tenth part is sown (given) at the beginning of activity (morning) to His servants while living on the earth till their end of fleshly lives. What is sown at the springtime (beginning of activity/morning) shall be reaped at the harvest time (end of activity/evening). See Matt. 25 explanation of what is given shall be double received like five talents (gifts of ministry) given to His servants and five more talents (multiplied gifts of ministry to the beginners [new spiritual births] are received back to Him. The children produced out of their parents will be multiplied into their next generation of making more children after them, but if the married couple have no children, they have no next generation (end of their cycle of making children).
The griddle is likened to the heart of the Spirit filled with the Holy Spirit (oil) with the Bread of Life (the Word) planted while consumed in the fire (the works of truth).
On a griddle it shall be made with oil:
The Bread of Life (fine flour) is always with the pouring of Holy Spirit (oil) dwelling in the heart (griddle) of His servant.
When it is soaked:
The oil (Holy Spirit) is soaked (overfilled) with the Word of Life planted in the heart of His servant as the Word and the Act (Spirit) work together eternally.
Thou shalt bring it in:
You shall receive the Word of Life (fine flour) into your heart filled with the oil (Holy Spirit) once you are sanctified with His blood washing away your sins (works of lawlessness).
The flour (Bread of Life) is produced as much as twice from the beginning of activity to the end of activity while consuming (baking) in the fire like the spiritual reproduction like to learn more of His Law of Life is to increase your knowledge of His Kingdom as much as twice daily.
Lev. 6:14 “And this is the law of the meat offering...”; 9:17; 10:12 “...Take the meat offering that remaineth of the offerings of YHWH made by fire, and eat it without leaven beside the altar: for it is most holy.” ; 23:18
Matt. 13:33 “The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.”
The meal offering is the work of purification in your heart, separating from the fleshly works consumed in the fire, and is unleavened (purified) to eat (do) the Word of sincerity and truth.
Meal-offering in broken pieces:
His meal-offering (Bread of Life) is given to all His servants equally in broken pieces (talents of spiritual life) so that they may produce them as much as twice daily like Yahushua our Messiah broke the bread into the pieces to all His apostles in the night of Pesach (Passover) to eat what is of the Bread of Life).
Thou shall offer it for a sweet savour unto YHWH:
You shall return (offer) what is given to you at the beginning of activity (morning) if twice produced at the end of activity (evening) for the pleasure (sweet savour) to YHWH for his spiritual growth/reproduction. The fleshly minded do not bring the spiritual production back to Him because he does not do the labor of His will at the beginning of his activity like Matt. 25:24-30.
Merchandise departed from the transgressors:
Rev. 18:11 “...frankincense, wine, and oil, fine flour, and wheat....all things which were daintly and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.”
The spiritual foods are taken away from those who walk in the way of lawlessness: Frankincense (Consummation in fire to purify from the fleshly works), Wine (Messiah’s blood to purify the heart of repentant), Oil (Anointing of Holy Spirit), Fine Flour (Members of Body of Messiah), Wheat (the Son/the firstfruit of all).
Beware of leaven:
Matt. 16:6-12 “...Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the Saducees...but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Saducees.”; 1 Cor. 5: 6-8 “Your glorifying is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? Purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, even as you are unleavened. For our Passover also has been sacrificed, even the Messiah: therefore let us keep the Feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”
We, the children of Unleavened Bread, are aware of those eating the leavened bread of malice and wickedness, because of their unbelief in the Law of Life.
Ge. 18:6 “...Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes upon the hearth.”; Ex. 16:23 “...bake that which ye will bake to day..”; Lev. 2:4 “...baken in the oven, it shall be unleavened cakes of fine flour mingled with oil, or unleavened wafers anointed with oil.”; 1 Sam. 28:24
The unleavened bread is the pure in the heart thru the consummation of fire to separate from the fleshly (leavened) works of malice and wickedness.
Is. 44:15-20 “Then shall it be for a man to burn: for he will take thereof, and warm himself; yea, he kindled it, and baketh bread; yea, he maketh a idol, and worshippeth it; he maketh it a gaven image, and falleth down thereto....none considereth in his heart, neither is there knowledge nor understanding to say, I have burned part of it in the fire; yea, also I have baked bread upon the coals...”
Those, who do not know the way of Life, are the idolaters of what their hands made out of the fleshly works to preserve their fleshly lives by eating the fleshly things, admiring the end-products made by their hands.
On Cohen ha Gadol’s (the high priest’s) twice daily meal offering (P40):
The high priest (Yahushua our Messiah) are the One to receive our spiritual reproduction (baked twice) at the end of our spiritual activity (evening) daily of what is given the (spiritual talents/gifts) pieces of meal offering (Bread of Life) to His servants at the beginning of our spiritual activity (morning).
Mitzvah P41: Numbers 28:9 - On the Shabbat additional, musaf, offering
v.9-10 “And on the Shabbat day two he-lambs of the first year without blemish, and two tenth (parts of an ephah) of fine flour (for) a meal-offering, mingled with oil, and the drink-offering thereof. (This is) the burnt offering of Shabbat of (every) Shabbat, beside the continual burnt-offering, and the drink-offering thereof.”
Ex. 20:8-11 “Remember the Shabbat day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Shabbat of YHWH your Elohim; in it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter, your male or your female servant or your cattle or your sojourner who stays with you. For in six days YHWH made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore YHWH blessed the Shabbat day and made it holy.”
Shabbat/rest from all labor: the completion of the law of purification to purge out our dead works of ignorance (leavened bread of malice and unrest). Our true shepherd is the true Shabbat/rest for His sheep from all the works of unrest.
Yahushua is our Shabbat Master. Matt. 12:8 “For the Son of Man is Master/Rabbi of the Shabbat.” Mark 2:27 “The Shabbat was made for man, not man for the Shabbat. No man can find rest from his own self-righteous religion/kingdom for it is impurity in his heart. Only the Shabbat is given to those who seek the law of purification in order to become the pure in their hearts and enter in His rest.”; Matt 11:28-30 “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and you shall find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My load is light."; Heb 3:10-11 for those who do not know His ways or go astray in their heart, shall not enter His rest.”
Two he-lambs of the first year without blemish:
Two he-lambs (beginning of activity and end of activity) must be without blemish (purified) within the year of cycle where the beginning and the end meet perfectly, while the blemish (fleshly minded) can not get its beginning and its end meet perfectly because of the corruption of the lawlessness that breaks apart from the way of Life in resulting in death. We are the followers of our he-lamb (Yahushua the Lamb) who wash our hearts in the purification to put away all the works of lawlessness from the beginning of our spiritual lives to the end, for Yahushua is the beginning and the end.
Two tenth parts of an ephah of fine flour:
Two tenth parts (morning and evening activities) of the measurement (ephah) of Bread of Life (fine flour) broken into the pieces (gifts/talents) to His servants to do according to His will.
Mingled with oil and the drink-offering thereof:
The meal-offering consisting of all pieces of Bread of Life given to His servants who do His will daily is mingled with oil (the outpouring of Holy Spirit) and the drink-offering (sanctification in His blood) to purify the works of Law of Life apart from all the works of lawlessness. The fleshly minded has the blood of 1st Adam which is of imperfection so he needs to repent from the works of imperfection then receives the sanctification of the blood of 2nd Adam (Yahushua the Messiah) and the baptism of Holy Spirit, then he dwells in His kingdom of perfection.
Burnt offering of Shabbat:
The burnt offering (continual consummation in fire) is within the unending cycle of the Shabbat (rest) from all the works of lawlessness (restlessness) for the Spirit filled dwells in His Kingdom of Shabbat (rest) in the consummation of burnt offering surrounding it to separate the works of holiness from all the works of lawlessness.
peace and joy in heart when resting in Kingdom of Light. Give praises and glory to YHWH where there is no burden in their hearts (freedom from all burdens of sin).
Ex. 29:40 “..and the fourth part of an hin of wine for a drink offering.”; Lev. 23:13; Num. 15:5 “And the fourth part of an hin of wine for a drink offering shalt thou prepare with the burnt offering or sacrifice, for one lamb.”
John 6:53-55 “...Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day....He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.”; 1 Cor. 12:13 “For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body....have been all made to drink into one Spirit.”; Rev. 16:6 “For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast give them blood to drink; for they are worthy.”
The drink offering is the blood of the Lamb to purify our hearts when we believe in the testimony of His death in us, that we may be raised in the last day.
Study His Torah during the Shabbats:
Study His Torah (Law of Moshe) and prophets, psalms during the Shabbats (Acts 13:14,27; 15:21; 18:4). The Law separates those who abide in freedom (rest) from those who abide in ignorance (no rest). Abiding in YHWH's rest is where there is patience, love and joy while impatience, hatred, and miserableness cannot find to rest forever.
The first Shabbat mentioned:
Gen. 2:1-3 speaks of the sanctification of His Shabbat, after His completion of work. On the first day Elohim separated the Light from the darkness. The full moon was to govern the night (Gen. 1:16). It is understood that Elohim separates His children of Light from the children of darkness at the beginning and purifies the hearts of His children until the day of Shabbat (the Kingdom of Light/rest). Matt 11:28-30 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest (shabbat)....ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
The children of Yisrael were separated from the children of Egypt thru the washing of Passover lamb and the baptism of Red Sea (Holy Spirit) then the work of purification in the wilderness until the day of Promised Land. The pillar of fire at the night is illuminated as the full moon (Yahushua) shines on you.
Four lunar Shabbats monthly:
4 Shabbats (4 lunar quarters) only come within its lunar montly cycle (not solar cycle) when the Chodesh (Moon) is full (without a blemish) to sanctify the Shabbat days (Check P42 Mitzvah notes on the Chodesh):
When the 8th day is purified for the woman's period, she becomes clean so it is likewise with the 1st quarter or 1st phrase of Chodesh is sanctified as the Shabbat at its 8th day. These Shabbat days are often mentioned as 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th in the Torah books and other Bible books. The announcement of the beginning of Chodesh (Full Moon) and its Shabbat is noteworthy in Amos 8:5 asking when the celebration of the Chodesh is come in order to know when its Shabbat comes? Normally the Levites blows the horns announcing when the 1st day begins then it is determined when is the 1st Shabbat of its month started, when the ripen Full moon arisen at the east when the sun is at sunset (west). It speaks in the chapters 73 and 78 of Book of Enoch. Isa. 66:23 speaks of the Shabbats within its Chodesh. Psalm 81:3 speaks of the blowing announcement of the Chodesh before knowing when the Shabbat days of the lunar month are.
The Shabbats restored:
See Nehemiah 13: 15-22 speaking of the Shabbat restored when the Jews returned from the Babylonian captivity where they were observing the solar/Babylonian calendar which have the 12 headless months named after the legends of Babylian/Roman empire. Upon returning from the captivity, the Jews found themselves violating the Shabbat day because of their different calendar observed in Babylon using the day of Saturn as their 7th day. No one can make or prove the sanctified Shabbat as the day of Saturn or 7th day thru the originial Babylonian (solar) calendar.
Lunar calendar vs. Solar calendar:
The whole Bible only speaks of the lunar calendar which YHWH creates for us to observe. The lunar calendar is perfect (unblemish) for us to follow YHWH’s Chodeshim (Full/New Moon), Shabbats and festivals such as Pesach, Shavuot, Sukkot. For the Shabbats, they rely only on the Full/New Moons which are 1st days of all the lunar months, where the Shabbats fall on 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th days of all the lunar months. For the solar calendar, it is imperfect (blemish) for us to follow since it is a man-made calendar which had a history of errorly time changes on the different number of days in a year and all the headless months are the work of imbalance from days 28 to 31. We cannot take the holy days out of the lunar calendar and put them on the solar calendar which does not agree fully, like we cannot put the Shabbat day on the 7th day (Saturday) of the Gregorian calendar. We cannot serve the two masters, YHWH for His calendar, one for the man-made calendar.
On the Shabbat additional, musaf, offering (P41):
The offerings must be consumed always to keep His Kingdom of Shabbat freed from all the works of lawlessness (restlessness) that are separated from it eternally.
Mitzvah P42: Numbers 28:11 - On the full/new Moon, Chodesh (Moon), addition offering
v.11 “And in your Chodeshim (full moons) ye shall present a burnt-offering to YHWH: two young bullocks, and one ram, he-lambs of the first year seven, without blemish.”
Chodesh (Full/New Moon/Purity):
Num 10:10 “Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, you shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings...”; 1 Sam 20:5 “...Behold, to morrow is the Chodesh...”; 2 Chr. 31:3; Ezra 3:5; Ps 81:3 “Blow up the trumpet in the New Moon [day], at the full moon [phase], on our feast day. For it is a statute for Yisrael.”; Amos 8:5 “Saying, When will the Chodesh be gone, that we may sell corn? and the Shabbat, that we may set forth wheat....”
Col. 2:16 “Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the Chodesh, or of the Shabbat days.”
The pure in the heart (Full Moon/no blemish) can enter YHWH’s eternal Shabbat. No blemish in the heart (Dark Moon) can enter Kingdom of Light.
Beginnings of your months - Spiritual birth in the Light (Full Moon) [I am the Light], purifying from all blemishness, freedom from the slavery of darkness/kingdom of Satan, restoring to the full knowledge of Light/Righteousness from ignorance of deceit/wickedness.
In your Chodeshim (full moons):
From Chodesh (full moon) to the next Chodesh (full moon), you shall keep its Shabbat day holy on the day of Chodesh when the full moon is full Light separating from all other phases where there are parts of darkness in them. Yahushua is the Light fully so we all are the followers of His Light always knowing the Light never associates with the works of darkness.
In your Chodeshim (full moons) ye shall present a burnt-offering to YHWH:
When the Light (Yahushua our Messiah) comes fully in your body, it is full Light that can be seen everywhere for the burnt-offering is a consuming fire to keep the Light from all the works of darkness. We are to keep the Chodeshim (full moons) holy where there is full Light apart from all the phases mixed with light and darkness (the lukewarm deeds) or the phase of darkness (works of lawlessness) what is opposite to the phase of the Light.
Ex. 29:11 “And thou shalt kill the bullock before YHWH, by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.”,36 “And thou shalt offer every day a bullock for a sin offering for atonement: and thou shalt cleanse the altar, when thou hast made an atonement for it. And thou shalt anoint it, to sanctify it.”; Lev. 4:20 “And he shall do with the bullock as he did with the bullock for a sin offering, so shall he do with this: and the priest shall make an atonement for them, and it shall be forgiven them.”; Ps. 66:15 “I will offer unto thee burnt sacrifices of fatlings, with the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.”
Rom. 5:10-13 “...And not only so, but we also joy in Elohim through our Rabbi Yahushua Messiah, by whom we have now the atonement. Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned...”; Heb. 10:4-10 “For it is impossible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away our sins. Therefore when He comes into the world, he says, Sacrifice and offerings you would not want, But a body did You prepare Me; In whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin you had no pleasure: Then I said, Lo, I come (In the roll of the book it is written of Me) to do Your will, Oh my Elohim. Saying above, Sacrifices and offerings and whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You do not want, neither have pleasure in them (which are offered according to the law), then He has said, Lo, I come to do Your will. He takes away the first, that He may establish the second. By which will we have been sanctificed through the offering of the body of Yahushua the Messiah once for all.”
The young bullock is illuminated as Yahushua to take our sins away so we can have His eternal atonement on us as to free us from all the sins for His mercy is towards us. We know from John 6:63 “It is the spirit that give life; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I have spoken to you are spirit, and are life.” Yahushua (the Word) comes from the Kingdom of YHWH that can purge our sins out.
Two young bullocks:
Two young bullocks are the morning and evening activities guarding the works of Light consumed in the fire, for Yahushua the Messiah first came to the earth to take away our sins away (the beginning/morning activity of His earthy ministry) and secondly redeem us back to His Kingdom at the end of His earthly ministry after His death.
Gen. 22:13 “And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.”; Ex. 29:15 “Thou shalt also take one ram; and Aharon and his sons shall put their hands upon the head of the ram”; Lev. 8:22 “...the ram of consecration..”; Num. 5:8 “..beside the ram of the atonement whereby an atonement shall be made for him.”; Ps. 67:15 “I will offer to you burnt-offerings of fatlings, With the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.”; 114:4-6 “The mountains skipped like rams, the little hills like lambs. What ails you, O you sea, that you flee? You Yordan, that you turn back? You mountains, that you skip like rams; You little hills, like lambs?”; Isa. 1:11 “What to me is the multitude of your sacrifices? says Yahuwah: I have had enough of the burnt-offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he-goats.”; Eze. 34:17 “And as for you, O My flock, thus says Adonay Yahuwah: Behold, I judge between sheep and sheep, the rams and the he-goats.”
One ram is the consecration/atonement of spiritual mind (the Aharonic priesthood - Lev. 8) for obtaining the knowledge or instruction of YHWH to minister to the Body of Messiah.
Restoration of seven times blessings/shabbats to the level of purity in heart to the day of Light/Salvation (50th day). Psalms 12:6 The words of YHWH are pure words; as silver tried in a furnace on the earth, refined seven times; Judges 16:13,19:7 locks of hair of Samson (7 times strength in spiritual growth); Job 5:17-20 speaking of 7 strengths of Elohim in purity of heart; Psalms 12:6; 119:164-168 speaking of seven times of praising YHWH. (Check P92 Mitzvah notes). The baptism of Holy Spirit restores 7 times back in the heart to the full purity from the fall of man (Genesis 3). Genesis 4:24 "If Cain is avenged sevenfold (of cursings), then Lamech seventy-sevenfold.” Proverbs 6:16-19; Matt. 12:45; Matt 18:21-22 Yahushua speaks of the forgiveness up to seventy times seven.....The violation of the commandment of Life (in Genesis 2) lost 7 times of blessings because of the cursings made visible, so it requires all men to repent and restores back to the purity in their heart with the baptism of Holy Spirit, lest they die in vanity. To restore back to Shabbat/rest (perfection/purity) on the 7th day, we need 6 days labor thru the law of purification to purge out the dead works of impurity, like the woman’s cleansing process in 7 days. Often the seven is mentioned in the Bible as the restoration/completion of law of purification.
Seven first-year he-lambs:
The cycle (first year) of completion where the beginning and the end (he-lambs) meets perfectly in the restoration (seven) back to His Kingdom after the sanctification of His blood washing away our sins and the receipt of Holy Spirit is the requirement for all men to turn to Him from all their works of filthiness and lawlessness. It is understood that it takes 7 Shabbats to complete to receive the holiness into our hearts (Shavuot) from the time of our repentance.
Beginnings of your months:
Spiritual birth in the Light (Full Moon) [I am the Light], purifying from all blemishness/filthiness, freedom from the slavery of darkness/kingdom of Satan, restoring to the full knowledge of Light/Righteousness from ignorance of deceit/wickedness.
From the full moon (Light) to the dark moon (darkness) to the full moon (Light):
Isa. 66:23: “And it shall be from Chodesh (Full/New Moon) to Chodesh (Full/New Moon) And from Shabbat to Shabbat, all mankind will come to bow down before Me, says YHWH.”; Acts 26:18 “to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to Elohim, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.”
Yahushua the Master of Light only descends from the Kingdom of Light for those who come to repent from the kingdom of darkness (illuminated dark moon) so they remain in this world for the shortened days till the ends of their fleshly ages before He comes back to draw them up to His Kingdom of Light. We are all commanded to repent out of kingdom of darkness (dominion of Satan) to serve Him in all His things of Light. John 3:16 “No one has ascended into heaven, but He who descended from heaven: the Son of Man.” The eternal cycle of His Light comings to those repenting out of the kingdoms of darkness is for all the mortal ages to come in and go out just like the sun of righteousness shines upon both daily. Matt. 5:45 “So that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.”; 1 Th. 4:4-8 “But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day would overtake you like a thief; for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness; so then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be alert and sober. For those who sleep do their sleeping at night, and those who get drunk get drunk at night. But since we are of the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet, the hope of salvation.”
Impurity/falsehood in heart (Dark Moon):
Isa. 1:14 “Bring your worthless offerings no longer, incense is an abomination to Me. Chodesh and Shabbat, the calling of assemblies---I cannot endure iniquity and the solemn assembly. I hate your Chodesh festivals and your appointed feasts. They have become a burden to Me. I am weary of bearing them.”; 5:20: “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness.”; Hosea 2:11 “I will also cause all her mirth to cease, her feast days, her Chodeshim, and her Shabbats, and all her solemn feasts.”; Deut. 4:2 “You shall not add to the word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it, that you may keep the commandments of YHWH...”
In the whole scriptures in Hebrew, there is no “Rosh” meaning New, along with the Chodesh “Moon”, the so-called “New Moon” at the dark phase is used instead of “Moon” or “Chodesh” at the full moon. To insert “New” with “Moon” is a misconception or misleading conception for a man to look at. Today many honor the man-made days and festivals more than His festivals (Passover and the Unleavened Bread days, Shavuot (Penetcost), and Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) and His Shabbats and Chodeshim.
Conception from the full moon to the full moon:
Ps. 58:1-3 “Do you indeed in silence speak righteousness? Do you judge uprightly, O you sons of men? No, in heart you work wickedness; You weigh out the violence of your hands in the earth. The wicked are estranged from the womb: They go astray as soon as they are born, speaking lies.”; Isa. 66:23 “And it shall come to pass, that from one Chodesh to another, and from one shabbat to another, shall all flesh come to worship me, saith YHWH.”
It is understood that all men fall into the slavery of darkness as soon as they are born in the earth. In order to restore back to the purity of heart, the repentance of his iniquities (dead works) is required. YHWH sent His son out of Kingdom of Light to search those in the kingdom of darkness that they may return back to His Kingdom of Light. The prodigal son was original at home (the kingdom of Light), then was lost (in the kingdom of darkness) to his foolish acts, but was found in the kingdom of Light [Luke 15:11-32].
The concepts on from the full moon to the full moon cycle on our life has been spiritually revealed: Adam was perfect (Full Moon) at the beginning then he listened to the words of lawlessness (sin conception) before he fell in transgression of His Law (Waning Moon) to his death (Dark Moon). As he knew there was no hope, he cried for the salvation to deliver him out of the darkness (spiritual birth/Waxing Moon) and restored back fully to Elohim (Full Moon) thru the maturation of spiritual life like the pruning the dead fruits/ works daily in the process of spiritual life.
Eccl 39:12 tells that Yahushua is of Full Moon whereas Satan is of Dark Moon. All the sons of Adam like us were created in the image of Elohim (Perfection/Light) and we fell in transgression after our fleshly birth thru the foolish acts (dark works) so all of us are required to repent and be baptized by the Holy Spirit (receive the Light for the spiritual birth and levels of maturation). (Ps 58:3) While the uncircumised sinner is waning to his death, he has a chance to repent while in life but if he does not repent before his death, he has no hope. Lukewarmness is the double-minded like the half moon. To enter the kingdom of Light, we must repent and become the children of Elohim (Perfection/Light) (Matt 18:2-6). What characteristics of the little child (infant) are shown? They are lovable, gentile, humble, innocent, fearless, happy, patient. That is what Our Father wants from us. Be perfect as He is perfect! Before our repentance, we were full hate, greedy, impatience, self-righteous, selfish.
Yahushua was crucified on the 15th day which is at dark moon phase to put away our sins and restore us back to Him. The firstfruit (the first appearance of the cresent moon) on the 16th of Aviv (Day of Wave Sheaf) is understood as the Day of Resurrection from the dead.
Man’s conception from the dark moon to the dark moon:
The thought of men on the so-called “New Moon” (dark moon) is the fleshly conception from the birth of a baby in the world and his growth to his full strength (full moon) of life and, then his fleshly decay coming to the end/death (dark moon). The conception of dark moon to dark moon in the physical mindset is that we born empty, labor vain for riches/glory of man/powers, die empty. The conception of full moon to full moon is that when we repent from our foolishness/glory of man/vanity/powers of death/Satan to the glory of YHWH/powers of Light/wisdom/eternal life thru the burial of Yahushua to destroy our sins/old temple and deliver us from the bonds of darkness/death/ignorance/ Dark Moon whereas He cleanses us from our sins/uncleanness and also arose on the third day (day of Wave Sheaf - first appearance of sky/firstfruit of all - cresent moon) for the new temple of His Body. As to where is the beginning there is an end, it is a cycle of darkness to those who believe in the dark moon at the beginning that shall be the same at the end.
His Lights divided:
As to Gen. 1:14 "Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years", only His times are to tell us when to observe the New/Full moon and Shabbats (four quarters of moon) when the LIGHTS ARE DIVIDED. If the lights are not separated, there is no calendar for us to observe His times like those create their own months (dark or headless Moons) and sabbaths (Saturday or Sunday). Isaiah 1:14 "I hate your New Moon festivals and your appointed feasts, They have become a burden to Me; I am weary of bearing them." When the lights are separated, there is a full moon at the east and the sun at west to determine for us as the head the lunar month begins with its shabbat quarters (8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th). Amos 8:5. Ps. 81:3 "Blow the trumpet at the new moon, at the full moon, on our feast day." as we see there is no "and" but it means the New moon day is at the full moon phase.
Why does the man start with the dark moon or crescent moon (borrowed from Egyptian calendar) if the lights are not divided? We are only allowed to observe His times when the LIGHTS are divided. All His times of both separated lights (sun and moon) are set for us to observe the seasons, days, years (beginning of months: Ex. 12:1-2). Remember that the Shabbats (His set times) are made for us, not we for man-made shabbats!
To begin with, let’s look at perhaps the most intriguing of recent discoveries. In the Universal Jewish Encyclopedia, page 410 under the heading “Holidays”, I quote:
“1. Sabbath and New Moon (Rosh Hodesh), both periodically recurring in the course of the year. The New Moon is still, and the Sabbath originally was, dependent upon the lunar cycle. Both date back to the nomadic period of Israel. Originally the New Moon was celebrated in the same way as the Sabbath; gradually it became less important, while the Sabbath became more and more a day of religion and humanity, of religious meditation and instruction, or peace and delight of the soul, and produced powerful and beneficent effects outside of Judaism.”
It is understood that from Eze. 48:1, the New/Full Moon has to be treated as a Shabbat day from the six working days.
The lunar (Hebrew) month looks like this with reading from right to left:
8 7 6 5 4 3 2
15 14 13 12 11 10 9
22 21 20 19 18 17 16
29 28 27 26 25 24 23
* indicates either one- or two-day New/Full Moon observation (1 Sam. 20:5-27) since there is calculated roughly about 29.53 days in a lunar cycle. Shabbat days always fall on 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th of each lunar month. If the New/Full Moon day falls on Wednesday, the four successive Wednesdays would be the lunar Shabbats. Why does man keep the sabbath days on certain days and ignore the new moon days which falls on different day like the sabbath day is from Friday evening to Saturday evening while the New Moon could be on Wednesday, for example.
Days of tribulation:
Matt. 24:39 “...the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light..”; Luke 21:25 “..signs in the sun, and in the moon...”; Acts 2:20 “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of YHWH come.”; Rev. 6:12 “the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood.”; 8:12 “the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of moon...”; 12:1; 21:23 “And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of Elohim did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.”
The sun: the fleshly light (Satan, angel of light [2 Cor. 11:14]) comes to the end of the kingdom of darkness; the moon: the follower of the sun (the kingdom of darkness). Those try to save their fleshly lives shall lose them. At the end of fleshly age, the kingdom of darkness is separated from the Kingdom of our eternal Lamb.
A great tribulation (affliction/persecution):
Matt. 24:8-9 "But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs. Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name."; 21 "For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will."; Acts 14:22 "strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith, and saying, “Through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of Elohim."; Rom. 2:9-10 "There will be tribulation and distress for every soul of man who does evil (fleshly minded), of the Jew first and also of the Greek, but glory and honor and peace to everyone who does good (spiritual minded), to the Jew first and also to the Greek."; 5:2-5 "And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of Elohim has been poured out within our hearts through Ruach haKodesh who was given to us."; Rev. 7:14 "I said to him, My Master, you know. And he said to me, These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."
It is understood that the fleshly minded does not see what the Spirit filled sees (Matt. 13:10-17 "To you (spritual minded) it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them (fleshly minded) it has not been granted...."), for the fleshly minded only sees what is outward (kingdom of mortality) and the Spirit filled sees what is inward (Kingdom of Immortality). The great tribulation is to afflict (overcome) the works of the world of mortality (lawlessness) while being tested of your obedience to His Law of Life in your spiritual life till the end of your fleshly age. The spiritual birth is the sign of all the outward things of lawlessness afflicted at you in your spiritual tribulations once it is sanctified to separate you from the kingdom of lawlessness. Spiritual tribulations are the works of your afflictions/persecutions to overcome the kingdom (world) of lawlessness during those days from the beginning of your spiritual life till the end of your fleshly age.
Remember YHWH only looks at the heart (kingdom of inwardness/immortality), not the appearance (kingdom of outwardness/mortality) with the understanding of Yahushua's parables taught wholly as to compare with the earthly things with heavenly things by the opposing works and parallel things of visibility and invisibility. Shaul (Paul) in Romans 7 verses 22-24 mentions of the battle of good and evil inwardly, not outwardly. Acts 1:25 "And they prayed and said, “You, YHWH, who know the hearts of all men, show which one of these two (bodies of opposition) You have chosen."
First mention of Full Moon:
First mention of Full Moon is recorded in Genesis 1:16...The lesser light to govern the night. The first lunar month starts when bleeding the light out of the Moon just like the woman’s period begins (Gen. 3:15-16) because of the sin (bleeding of life/blood). It requires the law of purification to restore back to the Full Moon (Light/Perfection) so every one is commanded to repent from the dead works of Kingdom of darkness and restore to the Kingdom of Light thru the law of purification otherwise there is no light in the heart of impurity. The ripen fruit/mature seed like the Full/New moon. Because of the sin of man, the full moon bleeds to the darkness/nakedness, for Adam and Chauwah (Eve) were in shame of their nakedness. Many (mature) seeds fall from the Tree into the ground (darkness) after the harvest time and they do nothing in the winter season but start to grow in the spring time to their fullness/ maturation (end of summer time), in which they restore back to the fullness. Apocrypha: Ecclesiasticus 39:12 “...I (Yahushua) am filled as the moon at the full.”; 50:6 :He was as the morning star in the midst of a cloud, and as the moon at the full.”
The lunar calendar not recorded in the whole Scriptures:
Let us see what the lunar calenar, which is made by YHWH, does in the whole Scriptures while the solar/Babylonian/ Gregorian is made by the hands of men and is not recorded in the whole Scriptures. The study of the lunar month is similar to the cycle of the womanly period month. At the beginning, Chauwah/ Eve was clean, full of life before the commandment of life is violated, then according to Gen. 3:16, she first experienced the bleeding of blood/loss of life to her first cycle of womanly period to purify the uncleanness in 7 days to become clean on the 8th day according to the law of Moshe. It is similar to the full moon which is first mentioned in Gen. 1:14 to govern all the night, but because of the cursings made wholly visible, the moon lost her power equally with the sun in the cycle of orbit and starts bleeding her full light just like the womanly blood bleeds, the first lunar calendar is made with the Full Moon/Chodesh for the first day of the month.
Apocryphal books on full moon:
Not relying heavily on the apocryphal books, but for your own information:
Ecclesiasticus 43:6-7 “He made the moon also to serve in her season for a declaration of times, and a sign of the world. From the moon is the sign of feast, a light that decreaseth in her perfection (full moon).”; Eccl 39:12 “...I am filled as the moon at the full.”; 50:6 :He was as the morning star in the midst of a cloud, and as the moon at the full.” The Lamb is worthy to receive full glory of Light forever (Rev 5:12).
Nicodemus 8:1,2,3,9-10 speaks of the solar eclipse at 15th day of Aviv, showing that the full moon is the first day of Aviv (Luke 23:44-45 speaking of the darkened sun).
Some written words chosen for the chapters 73 and 78 of Book of Enoch speaking of the cycle of full moon to full moon: “....And her first phase in the east comes forth on the thirtieth morning: and on that day she becomes visible (full moon)....all her remaining light disappears wholly on the fifteenth (dark moon)....”
The Legends of the Jews by Louis Gingberg, The Creation of the World The fourth day, pages 23-24. “...Thou hast created the sun and the moon, and it is becoming that one of them should be greater than the other.” Then spoke Elohim to the moon: “I knew well, thou wouldst have me make Thee greater than the sun. As a punishment I decree that thou mayest keep but one-sixtieth of the light.....Elohim relented: “In the future world I will restore thy light, so that thy light may again be as the light of the sun.”
The Gospel of Bartholomew of N.T. Apocrypha v. 1 page 495 written by R. Mel. Wilson. “...Was not he formed first and then Chauwah/Eve? Look at the sun. It shines like Adam. Look at the moon. It is full of clay, because Chauwah transgressed the commandment. For Elohim placed Adam in the east and Chauwah in the west, and he commanded the two lights to shine, so that the sun with its fiery chariot should shine on Adam in the east, and the moon in the west should shed on Chauwah its milk-white light. But she defiled the commandment of Yahuwah, and therefore the moon was soiled, and its light does not gleam...”. If it had not been for her transgression, the two lights (Sun and Full Moon) would always shine and there would be always Shabbat (rest)/perfection for there is no cursing/conflict/darkness or no need for labor (6 days) for restoration. Look at the example of pillar of cloud by day (Sun) and pillar of fire by night (Full Moon) [Ex 13:21-22] daily after Yisrael was baptized at Red Sea from the defilement of Egypt/kingdom of darkness, continual burnt offering evening and day in the Temple of YHWH. Likewise, Holy Spirit is the guide of His Light continually in our hearts/temple after our release from the wickedness.
The First Shabbat of lunar month:
When the 8th day is purified for the woman's period, she becomes clean so it is likewise with the 1st quarter or 1st phrase of Chodesh is sanctified as the Shabbat at its 8th day. These Shabbat days are often mentioned as 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th in the Torah books and other Bible books. The announcement of the beginning of Chodesh (Full Moon) and its Shabbat is noteworthy at Amos 8:5 asking when the celebration of the Chodesh is over and its Shabbat is over? Normally the Levites blows the horns announcing when the 1st day begins then it is determined when is the 1st Shabbat of its month started, when the ripen Full moon arisen at the east when the sun is at sunset (west).
Also Psalms 81:4 says "Blow the trumpet at the Chodesh at the full moon phase, on our feast day." Isa. 66:23 speaks of the Shabbats within its Chodesh. Also 1 Sam. 20: 5,18,27,34 speaks of the keeping the feasts of Chodesh.
Yahushua indicates the Moon:
Yahushua indicating the Moon, says: No one comes to My Father indicating the Sun, but Me. We were lost but now is found likewise we were in ignorance/darkness but now in His light. Know where the beginning is, there is the end: The full moon is started at the beginning so it should be the full moon at the end of its cycle where we will live perfectly forever with YHWH when the good and bad fishes are separated at the end of harvest time likewise unleavened (flat/whole) bread of truth/Light is restored while the leavened bread of darkness/falsehood were thrown to the lake of fire. Notice today's solar calendar of headless months is more loved than the lunar calendar. We serve the true Master of the lunar calendar of purifications of our sins.
The Head of the lunar month:
Concerning the concepts of the head of month, we have seen many examples in the scriptures: From full moon to dark moon is outward, veteran, mature, independent while dark moon to full moon is inward, young, immature, dependent. Gen 2:24: A man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave to his wife where they become one flesh. I Cor 11:3: A man becomes a head of woman/house. The head to head cycle of manship is like the full moon to full moon cycle. The veteran/father teaches the words of Light/ wisdom to his son to his maturity, then his son is ready to leave his parents and cleave to the wife and becomes a new head/father (the beginning of cycle). The mother (seen/ outward) nourishes the word of light to the child (inward/unseen/dependence) growing to the full within its cycle prior to its delivery of head/independence. For the marriage of the Lamb, The Messiah is the head of His bride/all chosen servants in the eternal perfection.
Concepts of Light and darkness:
Speaking of the concepts of Light and darkness, we know that evil tree cannot produce good fruits while the good tree cannot produce the evil fruits. Can the good fruit (cresent moon/light) come out of the evil tree (dark moon/dead) as the first day of month? Satan knows his kingdom comes to an end because of unproductuion/corruption. Life/light only come out of the good tree (of Elohim/Full Moon) for the reproduction. But with our transgression by breaking the Law of Righteousness, our flesh body is to die, our rebirth is raised after His resurrection/death. To keep growing in the spiritual life, we prune all the unrighteous fruits continually, otherwise we would be choked with the teachings of falsehood.
To build the concepts of Light:
To build the spiritual concepts of the teachings of Light, we have to come to the understanding of the principles of two forces of nature (light vs. darkness, life vs. death, love vs. hate, law vs. lawlessness, cleanness vs. uncleaniliness, righteousness vs. wickedness, wisdom vs. foolishness, perfection vs. imperfection) as we have seen them daily in this world. Blessed are the chosen ones that build on the foundation of Light to eternity.
Backwardness of Temple of YHWH:
Read Ezekiel 8:16-18 “Then He brought me into the inner court of YHWH’s house. And behold, at the entrance to the temple of YHWH, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men with their backs to the temple of YHWH and their faces toward the east; and they were prostrating themselves eastward toward the sun....”; Ps. 104:19 “Thou hast made the moon to measure the year and taught the sun where to set.” (The New English Bible).
What do we see toward the west while the (physical) sunrise is at the east? The temple of YHWH! It is full of Light, honesty, holiness, righteousness.
The full moon sets in the west opposing to the sun rising at the east. That is when the Levites blow the trumpets for the announcement of the new month coming after the observation of the mature full moon.
Where is the dark moon at when the sunrise is at the east? The answer: the dark moon is in the same orbit with the sun at the EAST. The thin waxing moon (the first appearance after the dark moon) may be first seen one day or two. The time of dark moon appearing is between the 13th and 16th of the lunar month. Yahushua (Passover) delivers us out of the bonds of darkness when we cry for the Light. Noteworthy: the lanthers and torches were used to seek Yahushua in the no-moon night of Passover (John) 18:3... Powers of darkness (Luke 22:53).
Observe East vs. West:
It is also known to the gentiles observing the EASTer service at the sunrising (at the EAST). The Sun-day morning service is at the eastward (sunrising), while the Shabbat service begins at the evening (westward).
Why does the evening at the sunset (in the WEST) have to be started in the Biblical verses before the day (EAST) comes? We first throw our fleshly works or dark sayings (leavened bread of malice and wickedness) at the evening (works of purification), before we can receive the spiritual things (unleavened bread of sincerity and truth) in the morning. 2 Cor. 5:17 “...if any man be in Messiah, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” The Dark Moon is passed away, for old things are impure. Full Moon becomes “New Moon” for all things are pure.
Full month - yerach:
As to yerach (#3391), it is a full month consisting 29 or 30 days to revolve once around the earth, not full moon (one day). See the plurality of yerach: Exodus 2:2 “…she hid him three months (yerachim).
I hate your Chodesh festivals and your appointed feasts:
The passage of Isaiah 1:14 “I hate your Chodesh (“New Moon”) festivals and your appointed feasts, they have become a burden to Me; I am weary of bearing them.” becomes a testimony to all who come to know His appointed times, because many come to the spiritual birth and still carry the traditions of men such as the Saturday/Sunday worship, Gregorian months or dark moons to observe, the unscriptural feasts like Christmas and Easter.
From Chodesh to Chodesh and from Shabbat to Shabbat:
Isa. 66:23 "And it shall be from Chodesh to Chodesh And from Shabbat to Shabbat, All mankind will come to bow down before Me, says YHWH."; Eze. 46:1 “Thus says YHWH Elohim, The gate of the inner court facing east shall be shut the six working days; but it shall be opened on the Shabbat day and opened on the day of the Chodesh.”; Gen. 1:5 "And there was evening and there was morning, one day." If the Shabbat observance begins at the evening westward, it is likewise with the Chodesh observance at the evening, with the understanding of the new day or month that begins at the evening. On only the Shabbat day and the day of Chodesh the gate is opened, aside from all six working days, where the sun rises at the east (morning service) till the evening service.
New/Full Moon westward to observe:
Eze. 46:1 “Thus says YHWH Elohim, The gate of the inner court facing east shall be shut the six working days; but it shall be opened on the Shabbat day and opened on the day of the Chodesh.”; Eze. 8:16-18 “Then He brought me into the inner court of YHWH’s house. And behold, at the entrance to the temple of YHWH, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men with their backs to the temple of YHWH and their faces toward the east; and they were prostrating themselves eastward toward the sun....”; Ps. 104:19 “Thou hast made the moon to measure the year and taught the sun where to set.” (The New English Bible).Isa. 66:23 "And it shall be from Chodesh to Chodesh And from Shabbat to Shabbat, All mankind will come to bow down before Me, says YHWH."; Ps. 104:19 “Thou hast made the moon to measure the year and taught the sun where to set.” (The New English Bible).
As the Shabbat begins at the sunset westward, it is a new day beginning at the evening as Genesis 1:5 "And there was evening and there was morning, one day." So likewise with the full moon westward, it is a new month beginning at the evening. Those, who follow the New Moon (invisible dark moon phase) which is eastward when the morning comes (sunrise), are backward to His teachings of Light. Where the dark moon is risen, it cannot be seen at all. The dark moon can stay dark at least two days till the third day so the full moon can stay full at least two days.
Where does the Rosh Hashanah “Jewish new year” beginning in 7th month come from? It is the Jewish theological concept on the fall of Adam when the cursings were on everything to fall before the winter came. It is contrary to what the beginning of the months (Ex. 12:2) at Aviv (1st month) starts. Likewise, the Rosh (New) was added with Chodesh (month) to make it so-called “New Moon” errorly at the beginning of Dark Moon, changing from Full Moon. We see many man-made traditional customs added in conflicts or contrary to the Biblical teachings. Isa. 5:20: “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness.” Let us not change YHWH’s words to the words of vanity, for they are the abomination to YHWH. One deed of error can reverse everything in the opposition of YHWH’s teachings like the disease spreads the whole body of a man to destroy the foundation of Life. For example, impatience (blemish) can reverse everything against the deeds of righteousness. James 2:10 “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.”
Full Moon (body being full of light) vs. Dark Moon (body being full of darkness):
Luke 11:34-36. “The lamp of your body is your eye: when your eye is sound, your whole body also is full of light; but when it is evil, your body is also full of darkness. Look therefore whether the light that is in you be not darkness. If therefore your whole body be full of light, having no part dark, it shall be wholly full of light, as when the lamp with its bright shining does give you light.” We are the children of Full (New) Moon seeing all things of Light, not the children of Dark Moon which are of the things of darkness. 1 Th. 4:4-5 "But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day would overtake you like a thief; for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness."
The words of opposition are identified in both phases/kingdoms: Full Moon has the characteristics: full, love, all, light, life, pure, unblemishness, clothed, perfect, new. Dark Moon has the characteristics: emptiness, hate, nothing, darkness, death, impurity, blemishness, naked, imperfect, old.
Luke 11:33-36 "“The eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye is clear, your whole body also is full of light; but when it is bad, your body also is full of darkness. If the eye is clear (brightened sun) then the body (full moon) is brightened, but if the eye is bad (darkened sun), then the body (moon) is darkened."
James 1:7-8 “For let not that man think that he shall receive anything of YHWH; a double minded man, unstable in all his ways.”; 4:8 “Draw near to YHWH, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you doubleminded.”; Rev. 3:15-18 “I know your works, that you are neither cold or hot: I would rather you were cold or hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spew you out of My mouth. Because you say, I am rich, and have gotten riches, and have need of nothing; and know not that you are the wretched one and miserable and poor and blind and naked: I counsel you to buy of me gold refined by fire, that you may become rich; and white garments, that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness not be made manifest: and eyesalve to anoint your eyes, that you may see."
Half-Moon phase has half Light and half dark indicating the double-minded, serving two masters. Matt. 6:24 “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to one, and despise the other. You cannot serve YHWH and mammon.” Blessed are those who increase the knowledge of Light in their hearts to the full (the waxing Moon to the Full Moon), but woe to those who neglect (decrease) the knowledge of Light to the darkness/emptiness (the waning Moon to the Dark Moon). [Luke 11:34-36]
On the full/new Moon, Chodesh (Moon), addition offering (P42):
The offering must be made on the day of Chodesh (full moon) where there is full Light separating from all the phases (works) where there is mixed with light and darkness (knowledge of good and evil among the fleshly minded). The offering is the consummation in the fire for the Light is the most holy apart from all the phases (works) where there is darkness found in among those who labor in the ways of blindness or darkness in their minds not seeing/accepting the Word of Light.
Mitzvah P43: Leviticus 23:5 - On the Pesach (Passover) additional offering
v.5-6 “In the first month, on the fourteenth (day) of the month between the evenings, (is) a passover unto YHWH. And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto YHWH; seven days ye shall eat unleavened bread.”
This beginning of the year (spiritual life) is in the springtime where the warm season comes. It changes from the coldness (hardness) of heart to the warm understanding of His mercifulness toward us thru our repentance when we come to know the way of Life in opposition of the way of death.
We, the Bride of the Messiah, are prepared in our hearts to purge after her 14 days of uncleanness (Lev. 12:5-6), we are washed in His Peschal blood, in order to become His participators in eating the Unleavened bread of truth and sincerity.
Fourteenth day of 1st month:
As to 12th chapter of Exodus comparing with Matt. 26:17, they prepared the passover starting the evening that Aviv 13 ends, not Aviv 14 ends. The translation of Matt. 26:17 should be correctly "Now toward (before) the first day of Unleavened Bread" (Aviv 15), the Passover festival began its preparation during the day of Aviv 14 between the evenings. It compares with John 19:14-15 "And it was the preparation of the Passover (Aviv 14) for Yahushua to die at 9th hour of that day. He was buried before the Shabbat (Aviv 15) at evening came.” As to Matt. 26:17, they did not put the blood on the doorposts and lintels of the houses. And they did not the lamb flesh in the night, because the Passover Lamb was not yet killed until the next day. They did not stay in the house all the night till the morning. (Ex. 12:22 "None of of you shall go outside the door of his house until morning.”) but they went to the mount Olives in the night and later Yahushua our Lamb was fetched in the night for the slaughter on the next day (Day of preparation/Aviv 14).
John 19:14 "Now it was the day of preparation for the Passover it was about the sixth hour." The day of preparation is 14th day as the Lamb was killed about 3pm (ninth hour) just before the evening came. Ex. 12:6 "the fourteenth day of the same month the congregation of Yisrael kill it (lamb) between the evenings (between the evening that 13th day ends and the evening that 14th day ends).
Without the Lamb slaughtered and purification in our hearts, we cannot be the children of Unleavened Bread (1 Cor. 5:7-8)
John 19:31 says the body of Yahushua was removed off the stake and was buried in the evening before the Shabbat (15th day) comes. (Ex. 12:10 "Not leave any of lamb flesh overnight until the morning.") All the people went to their houses all the night till the morning (15th) and they rested on the Shabbat (15th day). The Shabbat (15th day) is 1st day of ULB and also the 7th day Shabbat.
Note: the children of Yisrael stayed in their houses (Ex. 12:22) all night until the morning (the beginning of 15th day). Num. 33:3-4 "they journeyed from Rameses (the land of Egypt) in the first month, on the 15th day." Yahushua was risen on the third day (very early in the morning [16th] as the sunrise comes out at the east, since day means from the sunrise till the sunset. Luke 24:21”But we were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem Yisrael. Indeed, besides all this, it (today) is the third day since these things happened.”
Between the evenings:
As to Ex. 12:6, some translations say to kill the Passover lamb at dusk, twilight, or evening. Look at the Hebrew word for it: haarbayim (plural) meaning the evenings, as found in the Rotherham OT. So it can be killed between the evening that Aviv 13 ends and evening that Aviv 14 ends like in the NT the Jews killed our Lamb during the daylight (Aviv 14) in which Yahushua died at the ninth hour (3pm) before the feast of Passover can be started at the evening of Aviv 15 with the unleavened bread to eat. The reason using “between the evenings” is to kill the lamb, to skin it, to clean it, and roast it in the fire on the day of preparation (Aviv 14) in order to celebrate the feast of Passover at the evening when Aviv 14th ends, along with the unleavened bread to eat.
Num. 9:5 “And they kept the Passover on the fourteenth day of the first month at even in the wilderness of Sinai: according to all that YHWH commanded Moshe, so did the children of Yisrael.”; Jos. 5:10; 2 King 23:21-22 “...there was not holden such a Passover from the days of the judges that judged Yisrael, nor in all the days of the kings of Yisrael, nor of the kings of Yahudah.”; 2 Chr. 35:1
Matt. 26:17-18 “...Where will thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover?...The Master saith, My time is at hand; I will keep the passover at thy house with my disciples.”; Luke 2:41 “Now his parents went to Yahrushaliem every year at the feast of the passover.”; 22:15-16 “...With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer: For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of Elohim.”; 1 Cor. 5:8 “..For even Messiah our passover is sacrificed for us...”; Heb. 11:24-28 “...Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.”; John 1:29 “...Behold, the Lamb of Elohim, that takes away the sin of the world.”; Rev. 5:12 “...Worthy is the Lamb that has been killed to receive the power, and riches, and wisdom, and might, and honor, and glory, and blessing.”
Those who do not participate the feast of spiritual Pesach are still eating the leavened bread of ignorance or blindness or hard-heartedness or stiffneckness in keeping their traditions.
John 5:53 “...Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, drink his blood, ye have no life in you.” The flesh is the Word of Life and the blood is the purification of Life.
Deut. 16:1 “Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto YHWH thy Elohim: for in the month of Abib YHWH thy Elohim brought thee forth out of Egypt by night.”
Mark 14:12 “And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the passover?”; 1 Cor. 5:7 “Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Messiah our Passover is sacrificed for us.”
Yahushua, The Word, is our Pesach (Passover) Lamb to wash our sins away and brings us to the Kingdom of Life.
Pesach is always beginning at 14th of Abib (1st month) to observe for all who believed in the truth of YHWH. But with the case of those, spoken in Numbers 9: 6-14, who were unclean with the dead body (Lev. 11:34), did not present the offering to YHWH during the feast of Pesach of 1st month that evening. YHWH, relating to verses 10-12, permits them to observe the Pesach to YHWH in the second month on the 14th day at evening because of the uncleanness with dead person.
The first one applies the same for 2nd Pesach to consume the remaining meat by fire prior to the the rising of the sun. We consume/eat the Word of Truth (meat of Lamb) continually and all our dead works are consumed in the fire before the heavenly Father/Light see us perfectly prepared for Him in the end of our flesh, otherwise we become foolish leaving the Word of Truth not consumed at all.
The fifteenth day is the second Shabbat day of the lunar month.
Fifteenth Day of 1st month:
Fifteenth day is the first day of Unleavened Bread.
Ex. 12:8 “And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread, and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.”; 13:7 “Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days; and there shall no leavened bread be seen with thee, neither shall there be leaven seen with thee in all thy quarters.”; 23:14-16 “Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread...for in it thou camest out of Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty...Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before YHWH Elohim.” [three feasts: Pesach/Son, Shavuot/Holy Spirit, Sukkot/Father]; 29:2 “And unleavened bread, and cakes unleavened tempered with oil, and wafers unleavened anointed with oil: of wheaten flour shalt thou make them.”; Num. 6:15; 9:11; 28:17; Deut. 16:8; 2 King 23:9.
Luke 22:7 “Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed.”; 1 Cor. 5:6-8 “Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaventh the whole lump? Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Messiah our passover is sacrificed: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”; 2 Cor. 5:17 “...if any man be in Messiah, he is a new creature (unleavened): old things (leavened bread of malice and wickedness) are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
We cannot participate in the spiritual feast of Pesach unless we throw out our leavened bread of ignorance and blindness in order to eat the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
Feast of unleavened bread unto YHWH:
The feast of unleavened bread is the spiritual food of purity and sincerity where there are no leaven found such as malice, greediness, hatred, jealousness, lying, cheating. The spiritual food for His servants is to do the will of Him who sends His Son to restore us back to His Kingdom of perfection where there is no imperfection found in the hearts of those who seek the sanctification of His blood washing the sins (works of lawlessness).
Ex. 22:30 “Likewise shall you do with your oxen, and with your sheep: seven days it shall be with its mother; on the eighth day you shall give it to me.”; Lev. 12:2-3 “Speak to the children of Yisrael, saying, If a woman conceives seed, and bears a man-child, then she shall be unclean seven days; as in the days of the impurity of her sickness shall she be unclean. And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.”; Eze. 43:25-27 “Seven days shall you prepare every day a goat for a sin-offering: they shall also prepare a young bullock, and a ram out of the flock, without blemish. Seven days shall they make atonement for the altar and purify it; so shall they consecrate it. And when they had accomplished the days, it shall be that upon the eighth day, and forward, the priests shall make your burnt-offerings upon the altar, and your peace-offerings; and I will accept you, says Adonai YHWH.”
Acts 21:4 “And finding disciples, we tarried there seven days: who said to Shaul through the Spirit, that he should not go up to Yahrushaliem.”; 28:14
Seven days are the completion of the Law of purification to purge out our fleshly works of uncleanness before we can receive the spiritual cleanness. On seventh day, it is to purify his soul and body in preparation for His sanctification after the completion of the Law of purification (7 days).
Seven days ye shall eat unleavened bread:
To restore us back to His Kingdom of perfection, we need the completion of restoration (multiplication of seven) by first seeking the sanctification of His blood washing our sins, secondly receiving the baptism of Holy Spirit, lastly doing His will faithfully (eating the unleavened bread of sincerity and honesty). The works of uncleanness requires seven days to restore back to the state of cleanliness such as the womanly period, the touching of the dead.
On the Pesach (Passover) additional offering (P43):
The offering must be performed in order to be accepted by YHWH, once we are sanctified by His Pesach blood shed in washing our sins upon our repentance, then receive the baptism of Holy Spirit, and dwell in His Kingdom of holiness, for we are His spiritual offerings (Rom. 12:1-2).
Mitzvah P44: Leviticus 23:10 - On the second day of Pesach (Passover) meal offering of the Omer
v.10-12 “Speak unto the sons of Yisrael, and say unto them: when ye are come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring the sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest unto the priest. And he shall wave the sheaf before YHWH, to be accepted for you; on the morrow after the day of rest the priest shall wave it. And ye shall offer in the day when ye wave the sheaf, a he-lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt-offering unto YHWH.”
Defiled the land:
Isa. 24:1-6 “...The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.”; Je. 2:7; 3:2; 16:18; Mi. 2:10 :Arise ye, and depart; for this is not your rest: because it is polluted, it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction.”
The land of desolation is the kingdom of confusion and chaos for the lawless ones to dwell in.
Ex: 23:19 “The first of the firstfruits of the land thou shalt bring into the house of YHWH thy Elohim...” ; Lev. 2:12 “As for the oblation of the firstfruits, ye shall offer them unto YHWH...”; Num 18:12; Deut. 18:4; 26:2 “That thou shalt take of the first of all the fruit of the earth, which thou shalt bring of thy land that YHWH thy Elohim giveth thee, and shalt put it in a basket, and shalt go unto the place which YHWH thy Elohim shall choose to place his name there.”; Neh. 10:35; Pr. 3:9-10 “Honour YHWH with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: so shall the barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.”
Rom. 11:16 “For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the brances.”; 16:5; 1 Cor. 15:20-24 “But now is Messiah risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Messiah shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Messiah the firstfruits; afterward they that are Messiah’s at his coming....”; James 1:18 “Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.”
The firstfruits only come out of the holiness (Word of Light). For those who believe in the Word of Light, they become the eternal firstfruits at the resurrection of death, for the death is the kingdom of destruction.
When ye are come into the land which I give unto you:
It is when the day of wave sheaf is accepted in the sight of YHWH which is illuminated as the resurrection of Yahushua our Messiah who died for our sins, then we, all the followers of our Messiah, can dwell in His Kingdom once we receive the baptism of Holy Spirit. It is the story that the children of Yisrael waited for 40 years in the wilderness before Yahushua (Joshua) the son of Nun brought them into the land after Moshe the lawgiver died at the end of 40 year wilderness. It took about 4,000 years to wait for Yahushua our Messiah from the time of fall of man to enter the 40 days of wilderness to complete his trials of testing the Law of Life before He can abolish the sin that block His servants to enter the promised land (Kingdom of Life).
Gen. 8:22 “While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.”; Ex. 23:16 “And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field.”; Deut. 24:19 “When thou cutteth down thine harvest in thy field, and hast forgot a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch it: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow: that YHWH thy Elohim may bless thee in all the work of thine hands.”; 1 Sam. 12:17 “Is it not wheat harvest to day? I will call unto YHWH, and he shall send thunder and rain; that ye may perceive and see that your wickedness is great, which ye have done in the sight of YHWH, in asking you a king.”; Prov. 10:5 “He that gatherereth in summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame.”; 26:1 “As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honour is not seemly for a fool.”
Matt. 13:39 “...and the harvest is the end of the world/age; and the reapers are angels.”
The time of harvest is for the reapers to collect the wheat (children/spirits of Righteousness) from the tares (children/spirits of wickedness). The sheaf left in the field (Yahushua - the Fruitfuit [Wave Sheaf]) is to feed the Lost Sheep in the world until the end of fleshly ages.
You shall reap the harvest thereof:
To reap the harvest of the earthly production is to perceive what is spiritual harvest in our hearts where we plant the Word of Life (Seed of Life) to grow the spiritual knowledge of what is written in our hearts by His Law of Life. You shall reap the harvest of your spiritual reproduction as you grow into the next level of your spiritual maturity by building the knowledge of righteousness thru seeking the things from the Kingdom of Light daily.
The only one Sheaf to be waved is Yahushua the Messiah that was resurrected from His death, so that we all can be raised by Himself if we believe in His eternal Righteousness.
Ex. 29:24-29 “And thou shalt put all in the hands of Aharon, and in the hands of his sons; and shalt wave them for a wave offering before YHWH...”; Lev. 7:30; 8:27; 10:14
The wave offering is known to the mind of purification and heart of purification thru the Word of purification before you receive the baptism of Holy Spirit to start your spiritual life in serving YHWH in holiness.
The Day of Wave Sheaf:
The day of Wave Sheaf is the beginning of the count of 7 Shabbat to the day of Shavuot: Lev. 23:4-7 “...In the fourtheen day of the first month at even is YHWH’s passover. And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto YHWH: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread. In the first day (15th) ye shall do no serve work therein.....”; verses 10-12 “Speak unto the children of Yisrael, and say unto them, When ye be come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest unto the priest: And he shall wave the sheaf before YHWH, to be accepted for you: on the morrow (16th) after the Shabbat the priest shall wave it....”; verses 15-16 “And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the Shabbat, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven Shabbats shall be complete: even unto the tomorrow after the seventh Shabbat shall ye number it as a fiftieth day....”
The Wave Sheaf day (16th) is the day after the Shabbat (15th) as it is a shelf of the fruitfruits of your harvest. It is the beginning of the count of 7 Shabbats to the 50th day (Shavuot). The fruitfruts in New Testament: (Rom. 8:23; 16:5; 1 Cor. 15:20, 23; 16:15; James 1:18; Rev. 14:4.) Yahushua (in 1 Cor. 15:20) “...is risen from the dead, and becomes the firstfruit of them that slept.” verse 23: “But every man is his own order: Messiah the firstfruits; afterward they that are Messiah’s at his coming.” Rev. 14:4 “...These were redeemed from among men, being the fruitfruits unto Elohim and to the Lamb.” Rom. 11:16 “For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.”
Yahushua our firstfruit of all:
Yahushua is the very first-fruit of all on 16th of Aviv (3rd day he was raised) since he was killed on 14th of Aviv between the 2 evenings (14th and 15th) [Ex. 12:6 Rotherham]. Rise on the third day (about 15 times in N.T.): Luke 24:1-7 “Now upon the first of the Shabbats (Wave Sheaf day), very early in the morning (16th), they came unto the sepulchre...they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre...He is not here, but is risen.”; 21 “But we were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem Yisrael. Indeed, besides all this, it (today) is the third day since these things happened.”
His burial is like the sunset (to hide His light from the works of darkness, and also bury our dead works), His rest from all works of unrest, and His resurrection is like the rising of the sun (to restore His light, and also raise us from the death). It is similar with the waning crescent moon disappearing, dark moon, and the first appearing of the waxing crescent moon.
Day 1: Day of preparation: 14th of Aviv (Passover), Buried before Shabbat evening
Day 2: Day of Shabbat: 15th day, purification/separation from the works of unrest
Day 3: Day of Resurrection: 16th, Risen on the day of Wave Sheaf (very first-fruit)
The Crucifixion and resurrection of Yahushua:
Yahushua was crucified on the 14th of Aviv during the dark moon phrase indicating the deliverance of darkness/blindness and was arisen after the day of Shabbat to be the day of the Wave Sheaf (the firstfruit of Chodesh/the crescent of moon) where we remove the leavened bread of dead works out of our hearts, then we eat the unleavened bread of righteousness, a new lump.
Ye shall bring the sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest unto the priest:
You shall have the Sheaf (Yahushua the Messiah) in order to become the first fruit of your spiritual harvest thru the spiritual production out of your knowledge on what is given from the Kingdom of Life. Our priest, Yahushua the Messiah, gives you the gift/talent to produce and return to Him.
The wave sheaf is the announcement to wave the sheaf on the morrow after the Shabbat (15th) or the second day of Unleavened bread. It is similar with Yahushua’s resurrection on the day of Wave Sheaf that is approved in the sight of the heavenly Father. The first fruit of all is the first sheaf of wheat (Yahushua our Messiah).
He shall wave the sheaf before YHWH:
Yahushua the Messiah (the high priest) shall wave the sheaf of all first fruits (His servants that are sanctified in His blood washing their sins) that is accepted in the sight of His father, just as Yahushua the Messiah was first accepted as the first fruit of all then we all are His first fruits after we are called out of the harvest in this world.
It is accepted for you:
Only the (unblemished) spiritual production is accepted where there is no work of lawlessness, once we become His sanctified servants to serve YHWH eternally if we do His will faithfully.
Morrow after the day:
The morrow after the day of sanctification where it rests from all the works of restlessness (lawlessness) is the day of the beginning to seek the things out of His kingdom of Life, once we are sanctified from all the works of lawlessness or ignorance upon our repentance and receipt of the Holy Spirit, just like Yahushua died in our sins before the day of Shabbat and is resurrected on the morrow after the day of Shabbat so all the dead believers who were waiting for the Kingdom to open for them.
The priest shall wave it:
The priest (Yahushua our Messiah) shall wave their sheaves (His servants) once they repent from their works of lawlessness and seek the sanctification thru His blood washing their sins in order to be accepted by His heavenly father.
Ye shall offer in the day:
Once the day of wave sheaf (resurrection of Yahushua) is approved, we are able to offer ourselves as spiritual offerings when we receive the baptism of Holy Spirit after our sanctification in His blood.
When ye wave the sheaf for a burnt-offering unto YHWH:
When you have His sheaf of first fruit (Yahushua), you are the spiritual offering daily to YHWH for the things you seek to add to your knowledge, for Yahushua is the Rock (foundation of all).
On the second day of Pesach (Passover) meal offering of the Omer (P44):
The second day of Unleavened bread is 16th day (morrow after the Shabbat on 15th which is the first day of Unleavened bread while the preparation day (Pesach) is on 14th day. With the understanding of the preparation of Pesach, it is between the two evenings to kill the Lamb on 14th day before the Shabbat (15th) begins at the evening with the feast of Unleavened bread. The meal offering (Bread of Life) is made on the 16th day when the wave sheaf is accepted in the sight of YHWH (resurrection of Yahushua the first fruit of all).
