Mitzvah P45: Numbers 28:26 - On the Shavuot (Pentecost) additional, musaf, offering
v.26-27 “Also in the day of the firstfruits, when ye bring a new meal-offering unto YHWH in your (feast of) Shavuot, a holy convocation shall ye have: any manner of servile work you shall not do; but ye shall present a burnt-offering for a sweet savour to YHWH: two young bullocks, one ram, seven he-lambs of the first year.”
Day of First fruits:
The day of first fruits is the day of Shavuot (Pentecost) which is the 50th day after the seven Shabbats are counted from the day of Wave Sheaf. Yahushua our Messiah is the first fruit of all when he was resurrected on the Wave Sheaf (the morrow after the Shabbat) on the 16th, then we all the first fruits of His resurrection on the 50th day after the seven Shabbats are counted as the people received the baptism of Holy Spirit on the day of Shavuot as it is recorded on Acts 2.
Feast of Shavuot (Pentecost):
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.”; 34:22-23 “And thou shalt observe the feast of Shauvot, of the firstfruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year’s end. Thrice in the year shall all your men children appear before YHWH Elohim, the Eloah of Yisrael.”; Lev. 23:15-16 “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 morrow after the seventh Shabbat shall be ye number fifieth day; and ye shall offer a new meal offering unto YHWH.” ; Deut. 16:10 “And thou shalt keep the feast of Shavuot unto YHWH thy Elohim with a tribute hand, which thou shalt give unto YHWH thy Elohim hath blessed thee.”
Acts 2:1-4 “And when the day of Shavuot (Pentecost) was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of the rushing of mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues dividing a part, like as of fire; and it sat upon each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit (Ruach haKodesh), and began to speak with other languages, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”; 2:13 “But others were mocking and saying, “There are full of sweet (new) wine.”
The Hebrew word Shavuot means seven Shabbats. We are to count seven Shabbats, not 7 weeks, since the Shabbats are of the lunar calendar with New/Full Moon announcements. It was because of the day of Shavuot the disciples and followers of Yahushua the Nazirite received the baptism of Holy Spirit and becomes the chosen ones serving YHWH. It was done after the repentance of their fleshly works thru the Pesach (Passover) of Messiah washing His blood in them.
Burnt-offerings and other offerings:
Ex. 29:18 “And thou shall burn the whole ram upon the altar: it is a burnt offering unto YHWH: it is a sweet savour, an offering made by fire unto YHWH.”; Lev. 6:9 “...This is the law of the burnt offering, because of the burning upon the altar all night unto the morning, and the fire of the altar shall be burning in it.”; Jos. 8:31 “...an altar of whole stones, over which no man hath lifted up any iron...”; 1 Chr. 16:40 “To offer burnt offerings unto YHWH upon the altar of the burnt offering continually morning and evening, and to do according to all that is written in the law of YHWH..”
Continual burnt-offering - continual prayers, forigveness, mediation, giving thanks and praises, continual passion for wisdom/truth from the above while purifying in our hearts (consummation of dead works in Fire.
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).
On the Shavuot (Baptism of Holy Spirit):
Acts 2:1-4 “And when the day of Shavuot was now come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of the rushing of mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues dividing a part, like as of fire; and it sat upon each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other languages, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”
The Shavuot gives you the baptism of Holy Spirit after the Pesach brings you the sanctification from His blood purifying your sins (works of lawlessness), and finally you dwell in the booth (tabernacle) of Sukkot with the Heavenly father.
When ye bring a new meal-offering unto YHWH in your feast of Shavuot:
When you receive the baptism of Holy Spirit on the day of Shavuot, you are the new meal offering to YHWH (Rom. 12:1-2) for Yahushua breaks the Bread of Life into the pieces of meal offering (His servants) to eat (do His will).
We, the servants, are the convocation of the same beliefs which are of the Law of Life where we share the teachings of His Light to all in the world.
Any manner of servile work:
As the day of Shabbat comes, we, His servants, commit to obey the Law and to refrain the works of restlessness whom the fleshly minded, who look for their glories and monies, are the slaves of the lawlessness not to keep themselves from the work. With the understanding of what the Savior says about the freedom of those who suffer in the day of Shabbat, we do what is good in the pleasure of Him who sees fit in His Law of Life and bring peace and rest to all. Those who are ignorant not to take the Shabbat day to rest are the slaves of fleshly works.
A holy convocation shall ye have:
We, the Spirit filled, are a holy convocation within us, for we are committed to obeying His Law of Life which makes us free from the works of lawlessness since we are sanctified and baptized with the Holy Spirit and dwell in the tabernacle of our Heavenly father. We are a holy convocation (perfect togetherness) in one whole Unity where all spiritual things are committed to YHWH in perfection.
Any manner of servile work you shall not do:
Any fleshly work shall be refrained from the Spirit filled for we build our spiritual life while the flesh decreases to the time of death. Not one fleshly work is promoted to the spiritual life so we are to cast out all the fleshly works for the increase of our spiritual growth till the end of our fleshly lives. As the day of Shabbat is highly honored, we are committed to promote its spiritual value more where nothing from the fleshly works is worthy for that day. When the day of rest comes, there shall no manner of servile work that is committed to the master of labor: We are the children of rest serving the Master of rest (Shabbat) whereas the children of restlessness serving the master of unrest. It is a understanding that there are two opposing forces between the works of rest (spiritual) and the works of unrest (flesh) such as peace vs. no peace, love vs. hatred, kindness vs. greed. When we complete our spiritual works, we come to the production of rest where we increase the knowledge to understand what the valuation of rest after we seek the level of understanding that needs the work to complete before the next level begins (from Shabbat to Shabbat). Those who their endurance works without understanding what they mean spiritually to them never come to find the true rest in their hearts because the restlessness in their hearts, for their fleshly works are committed to the works of slavery, nothing for their spiritual works to rest.
Ye shall present a burnt-offering for a sweet savour to YHWH:
When you are sanctified in His blood and baptized with the Holy Spirit, you are the burnt offering in the consummation of His fire to examine your good works for a sweet savour (pleasure) to YHWH where He sees your spiritual growth in Messiah.
Baptism of Holy Spirit:
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.
From the day of Wave Sheaf:
The day of Resurrection of Yahushua the firstfruit of all. It purges out all the leavened bread of malice in the hearts of those who repent from their foolishness, in order to receive the baptism of Holy Spirit (7 times spiritual strength) into their purified hearts.
To observe the day of Shavuot:
We are to count 7 Shabbats then the day after 7th Shabbat which is the 50th day pointing to the 9th day of 3rd month, noticing not to count 50 days. In the Hebrew Scripture, it is said to count 7 Shabbats and 50th day after the 7th Shabbat.
On the Shavuot (Pentecost) additional, musaf, offering (P45):
The offering is made on the day of Shavuot (receipt of the Holy Spirit) when it is accepted because you are the spiritual offering after your sanctification in His blood.
Mitzvah P46: Leviticus 23:17 - On the two Loaves of bread Wave offering on Shavuot (Pentecost)
v.16-17 “even unto the morrow (after) the seventh Shabbat shall ye number fifieth day [chamishim yom]; and ye shall present a new meal-offering unto YHWH. Out of your dwellings ye shall bring two wave-loaves, of two tenth parts (of an ephah) of fine flour they shall be; they shall be baked with leaven, (for) first-fruits, unto YHWH.”
The seventh Shabbat is the completion of the sanctification from the purification of His blood of those who seek the redemption in order to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit on your day of first fruit (Shavuot).
Morrow after the seventh Shabbat:
The morrow after the seventh Shabbat is the day of first fruit for all those, who follow Yahushua the first fruit of all, receive the baptism of Holy Spirit.
Even unto the morrow after the seventh Shabbat:
The day of first fruit is promised for those who seek redemption need the process of sanctification to complete before they can receive the baptism of Holy Spirit into their hearts then they can become a true servant to YHWH.
The fiftieth day is the day after 7 Shabbats are multiplied by 7 days as to count 49 days. It is highly honored to have the day of first fruit (Shavout) in your spiritual life because it is when you receive the baptism of Holy Spirit into your heart.
Ye shall number fiftieth day:
As we count fiftieth day after the seven Shabbats are complete, we know it is day of freedom (first fruit) when the Holy Spirit comes into your heart knowing you have a new experience in the spiritual taste of what is like being in His Kingdom and the spiritual fulfillment of joy in your feelings not comparing to what you have experienced in this temporal world.
Ye shall present a new meal-offering unto YHWH:
As you are sanctified in His blood to purge out your fleshly works and are baptized with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, you are a new meal offering presented to YHWH, for Yahushua our Messiah breaks the Bread of Life into the pieces of meal offering (His servants) to do His will faithfully.
Our spiritual dwellings are with our Heavenly father once we are sanctified in His blood upon our repentance, for we serve Him in all what is commanded of His Law of Life. The earthly dwellings are for the fleshly minded who are promoted to their fleshly glories according to their works of lawlessness.
Two wave-loaves are Word and Holy Spirit (Action) where the inwardness out of the mouth to speak the words of truth and the outwardness out of the action according to what is said in the mouth correctly. Also two wave-loaves are two witnesses of all deeds in truth. For the falsehood of wave loaves, they cannot be the true witness to each other if what is said is not performed correctly.
Out of your dwellings ye shall bring two wave-loaves:
As you dwell in the spiritual dwelling, you have Word of Life (Yahushua) and the Holy Spirit that agree together to what is said is performed correctly. To dwell in the Kingdom of honesty and perfection, what is said (Word of Life) will be always according to what is performed (the true Spirit). The two wave-loaves are the true witnesses in your spiritual dwellings eternally.
Two tenth parts of an ephah of fine flour they shall be:
Two tenth parts are the morning and evening activities equally measured in half, for the measurement (ephah) of fine flour (talent/gift) given to His servant to do His will, where the beginning and the end meet perfectly (within its cycle of spiritual reproduction) like what is sown at the beginning shall be reaped as much as twice at the end. The spiritual food is for the increase of your spiritual life but the earthly food is for the decrease of your fleshly life because of its failures to keep the law of life due to the works of lawlessness.
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.”
The leaven (doctrines of lawlessness) of men or false priests shall not be accepted to offer/teach.
Leaven of Shavuot:
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.”; John 6:32-35 “Yahushua therefore said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, It was not Moshe that gave you the bread out of heaven; but My Father gives you the true bread out of heaven. For the bread of Elohim is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world. They said therefore to Him, Rabbi, evermore give us this bread. Yahushua said to them, I am the bread of life: he that comes to Me shall not hunger, and he that believes on Me shall never thirst.”; Acts 10:16-17 “...The bread which we break, is it not a communion of the body of haMashiyach? Seeing that we, who are many, are one bread, one body: for we all partake of the one bread.”
The leaven of Kingdom of YHWH is a pure doctrine to teach to the men. Three measures of meal are the Pesach/purification of heart, Shavuot/baptism of Holy Spirit in heart, Sukkot/harvest of the production of firstfruits. The Word is the true leaven of Kingdom of Righteousness to raise the Bread of Life (Body of Messiah) thru the firstfruits of Holy Spirit.
They shall be baked with leaven, for first-fruits, unto YHWH:
The fine flour (gifts/talents) out of meal offering (broken of Bread of Life) by Yahushua our Messiah shall be consumed in the fire to examine the valuation of spiritual production, with the leaven (true doctrine) to teach to the men, for you are called out of this world to become the first fruits of our Messiah that belong to YHWH.
On the two Loaves of bread Wave offering on Shavuot (Pentecost) (P46):
Two loaves (Word of Life and Holy Spirit) are the works of wave offering (His servants) on the day of first fruit (Shavuot) to examine the valuation of your spiritual production.
Mitzvah P47: Numbers 29:1-2 - On the Zichron Truah (Day of Trumphs) additional offering
v.1-2 “And in the seventh month, on the first (day) of the month, a holy convocation shall ye have: any manner of servile work ye shall not do; a day of blowing (the horn) it is unto you. And ye shall prepare a burnt offering for a sweet savour unto YHWH: one young bullock, one ram, seven he-lambs of the first year without blemish.”
It is the end of the warm season to proclaim the gladness for the harvest feasts.
First day of the month:
It is the proclamation of New/Full Moon day for new month to observe.
Lev. 23:2 “Speak unto the children of Yisrael, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of YHWH, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feast.”
We are the holy convocation of YHWH to keep all of His feasts, for we all participate the feast of Pesach to eat His Bread of Life, the feast of Shavuot to eat His firstfruits, and the feast of Sukkot to dwell in His tabernacle eternally.
Manner of servile work:
A manner of servile work is to serve the master to complete all the work in preparing for the day of rest to come regardless of little or much work but we are subjected in obeying the Law of restfulness for the sake of the flesh that cannot endure without rest.
Day of blowing the horns:
The day of blowing the horns is the day of His announcement when the spiritual harvest is complete where the level of maturation is reached readily to harvest your spiritual valuation that is produced from the time of planting the Seed of Life in your heart with the guidance of the Holy Spirit dwelling inside to understand the spiritual things that grow from the Word of Life.
Day of blowing the horn it is unto you:
A day of blowing the horn is announced for each of you when your spiritual production is complete readily to harvest when your flesh is dying. It is a joy of your spiritual life when you depart from your dying flesh.
Ye shall prepare a burnt offering for a sweet savour unto YHWH:
You shall prepare your daily offering when seeking the things from above as you are sanctified to separate yourself from the kingdom of lawlessness. It is a work of the daily renewal of building your spiritual house on His Rock (altar/heart of holiness) by His Word of Life.
Feast of Trumpets:
Lev. 23:24-25 “In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, shall be a solemn rest to you, a memorial of Zikron Truah (blowing of trumpets), a holy convocation. You shall do no servile work; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to YHWH.”; Neh. 8:2 “And Ezra the priest brought the law before the congregation both of men and women, and all that could hear with understanding, upon the first day of the seventh month.”
On the Day of Trumpets: Announcement of Preparation of Harvest. The book of Revelation (chapters 8-11) speaks of the trumpets preparing for the Lamb of Righteousness and the reapers (angels/malakim) to come forth for the harvest to do the sort of the wheat and tares (the children of righteous and the children of wickedness).
At 7th month, it is the completion of spiritual maturity ready for harvest (Kingdom of new heaven and new earth).
One young bullock:
Only one young bullock is illuminated Yahushua our Messiah who takes away all our sins by washing His precious blood to sanctify our hearts so we can become His true servants in His Kingdom of holiness.
On the Zichron Truah (Day of Trumpets) additional offering (P47):
On the day of announcement on the spiritual complete harvest, we, the Spirit filled, come to dwell in His Kingdom thru our offerings made to Him by His Son who sanctified our hearts upon our repentance of the works of lawlessness, and the restoration of our full perfection in Messiah after our spiritual production (growth) prior to the time of our spiritual harvest when our dying flesh comes.
Mitzvah P48: Numbers 29:7-8 - On the Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) additional offering
v.7-8 “And on the tenth (day) of this seventh month a holy convocation shall ye have; and ye shall afflict your souls; and work ye shall not do; but ye shall present a burnt-offering unto YHWH (for) a sweet savour: one young bullock, one ram, seven he-lambs of the first year, without blemish they shall be unto you.”
The number ten (fingers/toes to perform) is meant to complete the preparation for the sanctification to celebrate, where the day (work of Light) is performed. When the tenth day comes, it gives us the preparation to sanctify for the days of feast (Sukkot) to celebrate in His holiness. With the understanding, it needs 3 days of sanctification to remove the works of lawlessness or uncleanness in order to be present in His holiness when to celebrate the spiritual production, like to separate us from all the works of filthiness when we want to be present in His holiness. Likewise, with the preparation of Pesach (Passover), the lamb to seek without blemish on the 10th day of 1st month (Aviv) is prepared for the slaughter.
Ten is indicated as to complete the commitment to afflict your souls, which is nothing to hide from your hearts when seeking the purification from the above. Day is the light activity to see your work of honesty when coming to affliction. Ten fingers/toes are the examples to do all the work of affliction for the way of Life.
The work of affliction is to grieve/repent/change your heart for your past wrongdoings or sins, in order to release them from you, by seeking your forgiveness of what was against the Law of Life which is the work of freedom, and your understanding of how the works of lawlessness do against you. Also it is to forgive others within your unity so that they may restore back to the Kingdom of freedom.
Ye shall afflict your souls:
All of us who shall afflict our souls are to purify any work of lawlessness that afflict us because of its valuation not found in the Kingdom of His holiness, for only the valuation of truth/honesty is preserved in our spiritual treasure (heart). All the (fleshly) works of ignorance and lawlessness that afflict us must be removed in order to be present in His holiness, otherwise we would be separated from His presence unless we repent our works of foolishness. Each soul has two witnesses that have the word spoken (inwardness) and the act (outwardness) to perform according to the word spoken out of his mouth, where both must be agreed in its cycle of what is sown is reaped. Any word not performed must be purified out where no agreement is made.
Any work ye shall not do:
Any fleshly work which is of lawlessness that you shall not do is against the Law of Life.
They shall be unto you:
They are the works of sanctification unto you for you need to restore completely back to His kingdom of holiness since all of us fall under man’s sin from our fleshly birth therefore we must deny our fleshly works in order to be sanctified by our Messiah Yahushua who is illuminated the bullock washing His blood in our hearts then we can be His spiritual offerings daily.
Atonement day (Yom Kippur):
Ex. 30:10 “And Aharon shall make an atonement upon the horns of it once in a year with the blood of the sin offering of atonements: once in the year shall he make atonement upon it throughout your generations: it is most holy unto YHWH.”; Lev. 16:30 “For on that day shall the priest make an atonement for you to cleanse you, that ye may be clean from all your sins before YHWH.”; 23:27-32 “Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls.....”; Num. 29:7
2 Cor. 1:3-7 “Blessed be the El and Father of our Rabbai Yahushua the Messiah, the Father of mercies and Elohim of all comfort; who comforts us in all our affliction, that we may be able to comfort them that are in any affliction, through the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted of Elohim. For as the sufferings of the Messiah abound to us, even so our comfort also increases through the Messiah. But whether we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation; or whether we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which works in the patient enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: and our hope for you is steadfast; knowing that, as you are partakers of the sufferings, so you are also of the comfort.”; Heb. 9:7-8 “But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people...”
The affliction is the work of purification in the heart of purity of those who serve YHWH.
On the Day of Atonement: afflicting your souls - affliction for their separation of the works of fleshness for the preparation of His calling to collect the spiritual production from the world (field of wheat and tares or net of good and bad fishes).
On the Day of Atonement:
On the Day of Atonement: afflicting your souls - affliction for their separation of the works of fleshness for the preparation of His calling to collect the spiritual production from the world (field of wheat and tares or net of good and bad fishes).
Psalms 147:6 “YHWH supports the afflicted; He brings down the wicked to the ground.” Prov. 36:15 “He delivers the afflicted in their affliction, and opens their ear in time of oppression.” Psalms 25:16-22 is the example of being afflicted in the troubles. 2 Cor. 4:8-9 “we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; persecuted, but not forsaked; struck down, but not destroyed”
The woman - Body of Messiah:
The woman (Yisrael/Body of Messiah) in Rev. 12 is in the affliction from the persecution of Satan (Red Dragon). 2 Thess. 1:3-12...v7 “and to give relief to you who are afflicted and to us as well when the Rabbi Yahushua shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels” (reapers in Rev. ch. 14).
Offerings for the afflicted:
Eccl. 1-12; Psalms 113-118 for the seeking of the deliverance of being afflicted.
1 Cor. 10:13 “There has no temptation taken you but such as man can bear: but YHWH is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able; but will with the temptation make also the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.”
Let us endure our faithfulness thru the levels of trials where there are always afflictions and persecutions making us into the higher levels of spiritual maturation in Messiah.
On the Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) additional offering (P48):
Where the heart changes, there is always an offering made to YHWH when you come to know what is against you according to the Law of Life, then you seek the forgiveness of what your work of ignorance (in wrong direction) was performed so you can be freed from it and serve Him in the right direction (reversed from its opposed force). Yom Kippur (Day of atonement) requires time of sanctification (three days often mentioned in the Bible) before you can be sanctified completely to serve Him in His holiness.
Mitzvah P49: Leviticus 16:29-34 - On the service of Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), Avodah (Service)
v.29-34 “And it shall be unto you for a statute for ever: in the seventh month, on the tenth (day) of the month, ye shall afflict your souls, and any work ye shall not do, the home-born or the stranger that sojourneth among you. For on this day shall atonement be made for you, to cleanse you; shall ye be clean before YHWH. It is a Shabbat of solemn rest unto you, and ye shall afflict your souls; (as) a statute for ever. And the priest shall make atonement who shall be consecrated to be priest in his father’s stead, and shall put on the linen garments, even the holy garments. And he shall make atonement (for) the most holy place; and (for) the altar he shall make atonement; and for the priests and for all the people of the assembly he shall make atonement. And this shall be unto you for an everlasting statute, to make atonement for the sons of Yisrael, because of all their sins once in the year. And he did as YHWH commanded Moshe.”
It shall be unto you for a statute for ever:
It is the eternal law of sanctification to separate us from the works of uncleanness or ignorance when we come to know the opposing force where it is the work of cleanliness by opening our eyes to the Light (Word of Life) that touches our hearts. We are called out of the kingdom of darkness in this world when the Light comes in our hearts so we need His sanctification to purge out all works of darkness. Every fleshly birth must be born again into his spiritual life starting with the Word of Life planted in his heart to guide him in the Law of Life.
Those who are born in the land of Yisrael are yet needed for the spiritual birth which are required to repent out of the fleshly bonds. Rom. 9:6-9 “But it is not as though the word of Elohim has failed. For they are not all Israel who are descended from Israel; nor are they all children because they are Abraham's descendants, but: ‘through Yitschak your descendants will be named.’ That is, it is not the children of the flesh who are children of Elohim, but the children of the promise are regarded as descendants....”
The home-born or the stranger that sojourneth among you:
Both of the home-born (inside the Kingdom of Life) and the stranger (outside the Kingdom of Life) are the workers of Life since they are committed to the true repentance of their former (fleshly) lives for the sake of the truth of Life. Whether you know the laws of Moshe or not, yet you are commanded to repent of your fleshly bonds since its birth for the spiritual life, as if it is a Jew (knowing the law of Moshe like the circumcised) or it is a gentile (not knowing it like the uncircumisced). Both the inside and outside of the Law of Life must come to the cycle of Life for each soul has two witnesses (works of invisibleness or inwardness and works of visibleness or outwardness). For one instance, we love our neighbors regardless of their beliefs that are outside of the Law of Life but our act must be performed as to the words spoken to us.
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.”
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...”
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.
Day of atonement:
When the day of atonement comes, the atonement is made upon those who seek the repentance of their works of ignorance so the day is announced according to the works of sanctification to complete, then they become the true servants to YHWH in all works of honesty and sincerity.
For on this day shall atonement be made for you:
The day (the time of Light seen) is only announced when there is an atonement is made for those who repent their works of darkness or foolishness for being true servants to the Light that can be seen in all the works of truth.
To cleanse you:
Only the Word of Life can cleanse you in His blood to purge out all the works of lawlessness so you can be freed to serve Him in His holiness.
Ye shall be clean before YHWH:
You must be clean by His blood washing your sins (works of lawlessness) so you can be present before YHWH in His Kingdom of cleanliness.
The word “Shabbat” in Hebrew means rest for all of us to seek the place to rest from the works of restlessness to rest our fleshly lives that cannot endure without rest otherwise they shall die in the works of restlessness. Let us have a rest (Shabbat) day weekly so that our fleshly lives can get freshness and strength preserved in its cycle of fleshly life. Every creature has to seek the break from the labor to rest and to give its flesh more strength to restore back in the cycle weekly. Nearly, each one has his daily routine of work, rest/play, and sleep equally in three 24 hour measurements.
The solemn rest is truly commanded for all the creatures, not only for humans, but animals who are used to work for man as it gives us a break from the 6-day work endurance and restores us back our full strength when the beginning comes in after the end of 6-day work is stopped by rest which is commanded by YHWH for all creatures.
It is a shabbat day for the appointed feast of YHWH for His children to celebrate for their spiritual production in the Body of Messiah.
It is a Shabbat of solemn rest unto you:
Where the solemn rest is commanded for all of us, there is a Shabbat day to rest for the day (Light) frees us from all the works of darkness. It lets us know the difference between the works of unrest and the works of rest such as slavery vs. freedom.
The priest shall make atonement who shall be consecrated to be priest:
The priest (Yahushua our Messiah) is the only one to make atonement to those who seek the sanctification from all their works of filthiness in order to become the priest after the Levitical works of cleanliness to serve Him in His holiness. Rev. 5:10 mentions we, the priests, are consecrated to our Eloheynu while reigning on the earth to preach the good news (gospel of Life) to those who are the lost sheep.
It is His father (YHWH) who sent Yahushua the Messiah (Son) to those who are the lost sheep that may be restored back to His eternal dwelling (Kingdom of Life). The father uses his word (voice) son to preach to the world and uses his spirit (action) to perform according to his word spoken out of his mouth.
In his father’s stead:
What His father has given the priesthood to Yahushua the Messiah to become a high priest instead of Him who is the King of all. Those who follow the footsteps of Yahushua shall become the priests after the high priest in the Law of Life. The fleshly birth comes out of his father’s stead and becomes the Spirit filled of the priesthood given to Yahushua who is our Messiah.
He shall put on the linen garments, even the holy garments:
The heavenly Father put the eternal garment of righteousness upon his Son Yahushua who is found blameless in all things tested during the trials of His fleshly life. His garment of righteousness is shared with those who believe in His Law of Life so we all can live in His garment of holiness forever. The fleshly minded cannot survive with the earthly garments where there is moth or destruction to it.
He shall make atonement for the most holy place:
What the heavenly Father has given to His son Yahushua is to make atonement for those who seek the repentance of their foolish works so that they may dwell in His holy place by His blood washing away our fleshly works. The workers of wisdom are the only ones atoned in dwelling in His Kingdom of holiness and do His will daily.
For the altar he shall make atonement:
The altar (heart) is where the atonement is poured upon once the sanctification is done away with the works of lawlessness. The Word of Life (mind of Levitical law) purges out the knowledge of good and evil in the mind so that the altar (heart) is also purged for the Holy Spirit to dwell in its temple. The purification of both mind (Word) and heart (Holy Spirit) works together like the inwardness and outwardness must meet at the end of the cycle (beginning and end).
For the priests and for all the people of the assembly:
The atonement is made for the priests (minds) and for all the people (followers) of the assembly (hearts) to perform the works of Law of Life after their sanctification is made once all their former works of lawlessness are washed away by His precious blood.
He shall make atonement:
He (the Son) is given by His heavenly Father the eternal priesthood so He becomes an eternal priest to make atonement for all those who seek the forgiveness and sanctification to become the true servants of His Kingdom of Life.
This shall be unto you for an everlasting statute:
This law of making atonement for all the eternal generations thru the Son of perfection is established for ever so they can restore back to His kingdom of Life (Light) after their woke out of the works of darkness/death.
To make atonement for the children of Yisrael:
The atonement for the heart change (altar) is only made for the children of Yisrael (spiritual births), for the nation of Yisrael is called out of the nations of lawlessness because the Law of Life is given only to Yisrael thru the hands of Moshe. All the people coming out of the lawless nations hear the Word of Life written on the repentant hearts who go after the Messiah Yahushua.
All their sins:
All their sins (works of lawlessness) are forgiven to them who seek the repentance and sanctification thru the Messiah our true priest, for they are called out of lawless nations to follow His spiritual teachings on the Torah (Law of Life).
Because of all their sins once in the year:
The cycle (yearly life) where the beginning and the end meets its agreement by performing it according to the Word of Life spoken out of the Spirit minded. The sins are the works of lawlessness where the beginning (fleshly words) and the end (fleshly labor) fail to agree in the unity of perfection, therefore the works of lawlessness are purified out when going to the next level of knowledge built on the spiritual understanding of what is the work of perfection and what is the work of imperfection, so that the works of imperfection are corrected out. There are always the works of opposition to help us understand for the next level of our spiritual maturation and purify ourselves from the works of ignorance.
Pr. 1:23; Isa. 22:12 “And in that day did YHWH Elohim of hosts call to weeping, and to mourning, and to baldness, and to girding with sackcloth.”; Eze. 18:31 “Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Yisrael?”; Hosea 14:2 “Take with you words, and turn to YHWH: say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips.”; Joel 2:12 “Therefore also now, saith YHWH, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning.”
Matt. 3:2 “Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”; Luke 13:2-3 “...except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”; Acts. 3:19 “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of YHWH.”; 8:22 “Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray Elohim, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.”; 17:30 “And the times of this ignorance Elohim winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent.”
The repentance is the reversal point of heart change between the death and the Life, to know His way of Life from our ways of ignorance, to restore to the purity in heart and serve YHWH eternally.
The time (of repentance for His Kingdom) is near:
Rev. 1:3 "Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near."; 10 "And he said to me, “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is near."; Mark 1:15 "and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of Elohim is at hand .(draws near); repent and believe in the gospel."; John 3:5 "Yahushua answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of Elohim."
What the time is near means the beginning of spiritual life waits upon the repentance out of the kingdom of death (lawlessness) that is put to the end when the repentant one transforms to His Kingdom of Life, once he understands all these things unsealed (open) to him. Luke 11:20 "But if I cast out demons by the finger of Elohim, then the kingdom of Elohim has come upon you."; Rom. 13:11-12 "Do this, knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed. The night is almost gone, and the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light."; Col. 1:13-14 "For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins." The time is come when you are awaken out of the kingdom of darkness to His Kingdom of Light.
Luke 21:8-9 "And He said, See to it that you are not misled; for many will come in My name, saying, I am He, and, the time is near. Do not go after them. When you hear of wars and disturbances, do not be terrified; for these things must take place first, but the end does not follow immediately." Many who do not have His Word of Life written/dwelt in their unrepentant/unsealed hearts mislead others, for they do not understand His word of Life, unless they repent out of the kingdom of falsehood. When you understand all these things unsealed in His parables shown to you, then you are with Him. Luke 21:31 "So you also, when you see these things happening, recognize that the kingdom of Elohim is near." These things first come from His Kingdom of Life as to awaken you out of the kingdom of death upon repentance for the beginning of your spiritual life, then the end of the kingdom of death cannot follow you, because His Word of Life dwells in your sanctified heart daily.
Unless you repent, you will all likewise perish:
Luke 13:2-5 "And Yahushua said to them, Do you suppose that these Galileans were greater sinners than all other Galileans because they suffered this fate? I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish. Or do you suppose that those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them were worse culprits than all the men who live in Jerusalem? I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish."
What Yahushua the Messiah expects all to repent is required, for there is no one in Yisrael found to have great faith as He is who is more honorable than all, because He wants all to be perfect as He is perfect. Matt. 8:10 "....Truly I say to you, I have not found such great faith with anyone in Yisrael."
The Galileans (greater sinners) and all other Galieans (Luke 13):
Luke 13:2-5 "And Yahushua said to them, Do you suppose that these Galileans were greater sinners than all other Galileans because they suffered this fate? I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish. Or do you suppose that those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them were worse culprits than all the men who live in Jerusalem? I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish."
No fleshly minded can think more righteous than other fleshly minded which is less righteous than him, because of the pride which is a great sin in comparing with those who are worse than him. No matter what the one thinks if he is more righteous in this world of mortality than others that does more wicked than him, still we are all commanded to repent daily till the end of fleshly age, because we must renew our minds and hearts while growing in our spiritual maturity to complete our work for YHWH. We ought to go out and help those who need the spiritual help. Matt. 9:12-13 "But when Yahushua heard this, He said, It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick. But go and learn what this means: I desire compassion, and not sacrifice, for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
Your lampstand out of its place is removed unless you repent:
Assembly in Ephesus: Rev. 2:2-6 "I know your deeds and your toil and perseverance, and that you cannot tolerate evil men, and you put to the test those who call themselves apostles, and they are not, and you found them to be false; and you have perseverance and have endured for My name's sake, and have not grown weary. But I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent and do the deeds you did at first; or else I am coming to you and will remove your lampstand out of its place unless you repent. Yet this you do have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate."
His Word of Light is sown in your repentant heart in order to do your spiritual labor while in your spiritual growth, once the spirits of lawlessness are purged out. The Spirit of Light is given to help build your spiritual life till the end of fleshly age with the good deeds, toil, and perseverance and tolerance against the works of lawlessness.
But if it is not productive from the beginning of the spiritual life, it can become loosened as to let His Spirit of Light (lampstand) go and the old spirits of lawlessness can come back to the unoccupied heart of oldness, unless the mind and heart is renewed with His Law of Life daily. Matt. 12:43-45 “Now when the unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and does not find it. Then it says, I will return to my house from which I came'; and when it comes, it finds it unoccupied, swept, and put in order. Then it goes and takes along with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. That is the way it will also be with this evil generation.” It also mentions that the foolish virgins (fleshly bodies) in Matthew 25:1-12 have no oil (His Spirit of Light) for their lamps to lighten. The deeds/teachings of Nicolaitans (Acts 6:5) is one of the abominable examples of the men’s customs/traditions to carry with, in which YHWH hates.
Parable of the righteous and the contempt:
Luke 18: 9-14 "And He also told this parable to some people who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and viewed others with contempt: Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood and was praying this to himself: Elohim, I thank You that I am not like other people: swindlers, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice on the Shabbat; I pay tithes of all that I get. But the tax collector, standing some distance away, was even unwilling to lift up his eyes to heaven, but was beating his breast, saying, Elohim, be merciful to me, the sinner! I tell you, this man went to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted."
No matter if he is a righteous one or a contemptuous one, he must be humbled. The self-righteous/exalted one seeks the glory of mortal men and is worthless in His sight, comparing to the contemptuous one seeks His forgiveness like the tax collector.
Congregation walk in the words of ignorance:
Lev. 4:13-14 “And if the whole congregation of Yisrael sin through ignorance, and the thing be hid from the eyes of the assembly, and they have done somewhat against any of the commandments of YHWH concerning things which should not be done, and are guilty; when the sin, which they have sinned against it, is known, then the congregation shall offer a young bullock for the sin, and bring him before the tabernacle of the congregation.”; Hos. 4:6 “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of the Elohim I will also forget thy children.”, 8:12 “I have written to him the great things of my law, but they were counted as a strange thing.”
Ignorance is a misleading concept when not knowing the law of Life. It can turn the whole congregation away from the truths by the falsehood or lawless teachings in contrary to what is commanded us in the Torah. One iota of ignorance can multiple other errors in teaching in congregations/assemblies. Today’s many traditions of men are built on the deeds of ignorance or lawlessness. James 2:10 “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.”
Let us purge our hearts daily to keep us free from doing the deeds of ignorance by seeking His wisdom, not relying on our thoughts or customs of men.
On the service of Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), Avodah (Service) (P49):
The service (performance) of His atonement is on those who seek their heart change for the works of His Righteousness in the day of Light that touches their hearts in the woke of their previous works of ignorance (darkness).
Mitzvah P50: Numbers 29:13 - On the Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) musaf offering
v.12 “And on the fifteenth day of the seventh month a holy convocation shall ye have: any manner of servile work ye shall not do, and ye shall keep a feast unto YHWH seven days.”
The feast that is sanctified in holiness by YHWH is highly regarded in the heaven and also to the Spirit minded but it is lowly regarded to the fleshly minded who devotes much on the man-made festivals which are not commanded by the heavenly Father but by the traditions of men. The spiritual feast refers to those who understand what the feasts are like Pesach (the Passover Lamb) to wash our sins away, Shavuot/Pentecost (the pouring of Holy Spirit) to give the gift to the Spirit filled, and Sukkot/feast of Tabernacle (the dwelling in His tabernacle) along with other feasts that are for the atonement, affliction, purification for their souls.
Ye shall keep a feast unto YHWH seven days:
You are the feast of YHWH to keep for the Spirit of YHWH that dwells in your temple (heart) eternally whereas the seven days are the spiritual indication of its eternity, once you taste the new birth in His Spirit after your former works of lawlessness are purged out thru your repentance, sanctified in His blood, and receipt of His Spirit.
YHWH dwells in tabernacles not made with hands:
Rev. 21:3...”Behold, the tabernacle of Elohim is among men, and He shall dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and Elohim Himself shall be among them.” Acts 7:44-50; 15:16-18; The Restoration of Yisrael: Amos 9:11 “In that day I will raise up the fallen booth of David and wall up its breaches; I will also raise up its ruins, and rebuild it as in the days of old.”
YHWH dwells only in the Tabernacle of Life, not made with hands of men. For us to dwell in the Tabernacle of YHWH, we must throw out our fleshly tabernacled possessions which are perishable and made with hands of men in order to dwell in His Tabernacle of Life by the purification of our hearts.
On the Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) musaf offering (P50):
Where YHWH dwells in the eternal tabernacle (Kingdom), we are His spiritual offerings in making the spiritual production that pleases Him by keeping His perfect Law of Life.
Mitzvah P51: Numbers 29:36 - On the Shemini Atzeret (8th day of Sukkot [Feast of Tabernacles]) additional offering
v.35-36 “On the eighth day a restriction (from labor) shall ye have: any manner of servile work ye shall not do. And you shall offer a burnt offering, a fire-offering of a sweet savour unto YHWH: one bullock, one ram, he-lambs of the first year seven, without blemish.”
It is known as the end of weekly cycle from Shabbat to the next Shabbat when the Full/New Moon falls on 1st day of lunar month, then the first Shabbat is always on the 8th day of lunar month. The first man (Adam) falls at the beginning where the sin is first conceived (1st day) illuminating the full moon becomes blemish shedding its light (woman’s menstruation) so the last Adam (Yahushua our Messiah) restores us back to His Kingdom of Light as the woman’s purification is completed on the 8th day so that the woman, the children of Yisrael, can be restored back to the spiritual production in His Light (next full moon).
The eighth day is known in the Torah teachings for the day of sanctification after the 7 days of the process of purification of the unclean.
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 (the release of ovulation) 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.
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 eighth day is known in the Torah teachings for the day of sanctification after the 7 days of the process of purification of the unclean.
On the 8th day of Sukkot:
Completion of the purification from all impurity for the servants of Messiah abide in the Tabernacle forever with the Lamb. Likewise, the fleshly circumcision on 8th day, the spiritual circumcision is separated from the uncircumcision for ever.
The restriction is to stop the work when its restoration is complete by the 2nd man (Yahushua our Messiah) from the beginning process to restore us back from the falling of the 1st man (Adam) where the seven days is the spiritual indication to complete the restoration of us to the full.
A restriction from labor shall ye have:
The fleshly labor is restricted when you come to understand the spiritual work in His Light by your spiritual birth in His Spirit. The fleshly minded continues his labor because of his lawless works where there is no Light to see or the spiritual things to perceive. Once we perceive the valuation of the spiritual work thru the earthly things like Yahushua said the Spirit filled sees them and understand them spiritually while the fleshly minded sees them and does not understand (Matt. 13:11-15). The restriction of your spiritual understanding is at the end of your level of spiritual maturity before the next level comes for your labor to complete your understanding of the new spiritual challenges to find in the trials of your spiritual life on the earth.
Rest from all fleshly labors:
Matt 11:28-30 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest (shabbat). Take my yoke upon you and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
We, the children of spiritual freedom, rest from all fleshly labors.
You shall offer a burnt offering:
You, the Spirit filled, are His burnt offering daily to bring to YHWH for the sweetness of your spiritual works while in your spiritual life to purge the fleshly works to grow your spiritual maturity by your spiritual production.
A fire-offering of a sweet savour unto YHWH:
The Spirit filled are His offering consumed daily in the fire to examine the valuation of the spiritual production to preserve in the heart of purity and to purge all works of unworthiness as he seeks the higher level of his spiritual understanding while learning more of His Kingdom of Life.
One bullock, one ram, he-lambs of the first year seven, without blemish:
We have all His sanctification thru one bullock (illumination of Yahushua) to take away our sins, one ram (illumination of Aharonic priesthood/mind), seven he-lambs (completion of purification for restoration to His Kingdom) where there is no blemish (imperfection) in our hearts since we have His Word of Life along with His Spirit in our hearts (His dwelling inside our temple).
On the Shemini Atzeret (8th day of Sukkot [Feast of Tabernacles]) additional offering (P51):
The eighth day of Sukkot is to close the Door of His Kingdom for those who come to dwell in, for the first day of Sukkot is to open the Door (Yahushua the Messiah) to enter His Kingdom of Life as we are His daily offerings in consuming our spiritual works for our valuation preserved for His pleasure.
Mitzvah P52: Exodus 23:14 - On the three annual Festival pilgrimages to the Temple
v.14-17 “Three times thou shalt keep a feast to Me in the year. The feast of unleavened bread shalt thou keep; seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, as I commanded thee, at the time appointed in the month Abib --- for in it thou camest out from Egypt; and none shall appear before Me empty; and the festival of harvest, the first-fruits of thy labors, which thou sowest in the field; and the festival of ingathering, at the end of the year, when thou gatherest in thy labours out of the field. Three times in the year shall all thy males appear before YHWH Elohim.”
Lev. 23:2 “...Concerning the feasts of YHWH, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.”; Num. 15:3
New Testament festivals mentioned:
Pesach (Passover): Matt 26:17; Luke 2:41: 22:15; Heb. 11:28
Shavuot (Firstfruits): Acts 2:1
Sukkot (Tabernacles): John 7:2
Three times in a year:
Deut. 16:16 “Three times in a year shall all your males appear before YHWH your Elohim in the place which he shall choose: in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of Shabbot, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before Yahuwah empty:”; 2 Chr. 8:13 “even as the duty on every day required, offering according to the commandment of Moshe, on the shabbatot, and the chodeshim [new/full moon], and on the set feasts, three times in the year, even in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of Shavuot, and in the feast of tabernacle.”
The three times indicates at the beginning of our hearts of repentance (Passover/ Yahushua/day of Purification), then baptism of water (Holy Spirit/day of Firstfruits), and service of YHWH in holiness (Feast of Tabernacles/Father/day of fullness/freedom). We, the children of YHWH, keep all of His feasts, for we all participate the feast of Pesach to eat His Bread of Life, the feast of Shavuot to eat His firstfruits, and the feast of Sukkot to dwell in His tabernacle eternally.
Three times thou shalt keep a feast to Me in the year:
Once you receive the Passover Lamb blood shedding in washing your sins away, then you have His Spirit of YHWH anointing in your hearts and you dwell in His tabernacle, you have the spiritual feasts in your altar (heart) to YHWH always yearly to remember that the children of Yisrael were delivered out of the slavery of Egypt (darkness) to His land of freedom to serve YHWH always. The instructions of the feasts are written in your heart and mind to mediate spiritually to know what they are truly meant to your spiritual life.
Feast of unleavened bread:
The feast of unleavened bread is the beginning of your spiritual life to eat the Bread of Life daily after your leavened bread (works of lawlessness that cause the leaven of wickedness) is removed from your altar (heart). The feast of unleavened bread is the work of honesty and sincerity and the feast of the leavened bread is the work of dishonesty and cowardice that promote the fleshly powers. 1 Cor. 5:7-8 “Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump, just as you are in fact unleavened. For haMashiyach our Passover also has been sacrificed. Therefore let us celebrate the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.” We cannot participate in the spiritual feast of Unleavened Bread unless we throw out our leavened bread of ignorance and blindness first then we can eat (perform) the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
The feast of unleavened bread shalt thou keep:
As 1 Cor. 5:7-8 says you are His unleavened bread consumed in the fire always, for the works of unleavened bread are of His Kingdom forever. No leaven (fleshly work) is saved for His Kingdom but is rather to be destroyed in the consummation to purge out. Therefore we keep our unleavened bread feast in our heart (altar) forever before the eyes of YHWH.
Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread:
The eternal indication of seven days means to complete the purification where we eat (do) the works of unleavened bread eternally.
As I commanded thee:
Whatever YHWH commands, we obey every word spoken out of His mouth for the sake of His goodness toward us, for we all know He is all-perfection knowing the beginning and the end of His Word spoken to complete His Spirit (act) where there is nothing to find His faults.
The times appointed are for the repentant servants in their warm season after his winter season (hibernation/ blindness to his fleshly works) is over when they come to His salvation by their wake to His Light to see his works in lawlessness (Passover) in order to receive the baptism of Holy Spirit (Shavuot) and to dwell in His tabernacle (Sukkot/Kingdom of His harvest) to learn His Law of purity.
Hebrew word (#24) means green, young ear of a grain. It is known when appearing in the beginning of the spring (warn season) before the first lunar month is announced at the full moon.
Ex. 13:4 “On this day in the month of Abib, you are about to go forth.”
Abib is the first month known for its beginning of greenness to grow following the announcement of the 1st full moon (See P42 mitzvah) that is determined by the increase of warmth over coldness, and the time length of the Light prevailing over the darkness from day to day.
The greens (Abib in Hebrew) are seen on the earth at the beginning of warm season after the winter season is over, in order to announce for the first month of the lunar month at the new/full moon.
In it thou camest out from Egypt:
In the feast of Passover, we come out of the Egypt (kingdom of darkness) in time of our repentance for His sanctification to come upon us so we become the children of His freedom. Those who do not see His Light are still the children of darkness in their winter season where their hearts are hard (frozen or cold) for the place for repentance due to their bonds to the works of lawlessness.
None shall appear before Me empty:
Eph. 5: 6-8 “Let no man deceive you with empty words: for because of these things the wrath of YHWH comes upon the sons of disobedience. Be not therefore partakers with them; for you were once darkness, but are now light in YHWH: walk as children of light.”
The foolish (without the Temple of righteousness in heart):
Matt. 12:44-45 “Then he (the devil) says, I will return into my house where I came out; and when he has come, he finds it empty, swept, and garnished. Then he goes, and takes with himself, seven other spirits more evil than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. Even so shall it be also to this evil generation.”
Once you come out of the temple of darkness [the kingdom of Egypt], you will always appear before YHWH in the Kingdom of Light.
No fleshly minded can appear before YHWH unless he repents his works of lawlessness (sins) for His sanctification thru the washing of His blood away the sins, the receipt of His Spirit of truth and the dwelling in His tabernacle of Life. Only the Spirit filled has them all before Him but for the fleshly minded has none of His spiritual production for he is the worker of lawlessness.
None of His Spirit filled servants shall appear before Him empty, in which it means that they always present with Him in all three spiritual festivals, for they have received His Word of Life (Yahushua our Messiah/His Passover Lamb) and His Spirit of Life (Shavuot/Pentecost) to dwell in their sanctified hearts, and have abode in the eternal Tabernacle of our heavenly Father (Kingdom of Life).
Festival of harvest:
The festival of harvest is to celebrate what you have your spiritual production at the time of His harvest (completion of your spiritual maturity) when your dying flesh is at the end. You are to celebrate your spiritual production when the time of harvest comes in.
The festival of harvest, the first-fruits of thy labors:
The festival of harvest is your spiritual production for you are the first fruits of your spiritual work. The beginning of His first fruit (Yahushua our Messiah) is after His sanctification (Passover) is for all of us the true repentant servants at the end where we shall become His first fruits of all.
Ps. 96:12-13 “Let the field exult, and all that is in it; They shall all the trees of the wood sing for joy before YHWH; for he comes, For he comes to judge the earth: He will judge the world with righteousness, and teh peoples with His truth.”; Isa. 32:15-16 “until the Spirit is poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness becomes a fruitful field, and the fruitful field is esteemed as a forest. Then justice shall dwell in the wilderness; and righteousness shall remain in the fruitful field.”
Matt 13:24-30 “Another parable set He before them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened to a man that sowed good seed in his field: but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares also among the wheat, and went away. But when the blade sprang up and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. And the servants of the householder came and said to him, Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? Where then has it tares? And he said to them, An enemy has done this. And the servants say to him, Will you then that we go and gather them up? But he says, No, lest while you gather up the tares, you root up the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather up first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them; but gather the wheat into my barn.”; 13:36-40 “Then He left the multitudes, and went into the house: and His disciples came to Him, saying, Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field. And He answered and said, He that sows the good seed is the Son of man; and the field is the world; and the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; and the tares are the sons of the evil one; and the enemy that sowed them is the devil: and the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are messengers / angels. As therefore the tares are gathered up and burned with fire; so shall it be in the end of the world.”; 13:44 “The kingdom of heaven is likened to a treasure hidden in the field; which a man found, and hid; and in his joy he goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field.”
The field is the world where the good seeds (childlren of Righteousness) and evil seeds (children of wickedness) are planted to grow together till the time of harvest (end of flesh). Also the field is your heart of what you sow (The Word of Life) in as it grows in the trials of your spiritual life surrounding the tares (wolves) testing your faith.
Which thou sowest in the field:
What you sow in your field is produced to the end based on what you believe in the words spoken out of your mouth. Let us start with the Word of Life (Yahushua our Messiah) planted in our fields and guard it against the tares (workers of lawlessness thru the trials of your spiritual maturity as we remove (purge out) the works of lawlessness daily while we seek the words of wisdom from the above.
Festival of ingathering:
The festival of ingathering is the time to gather your spiritual production at its full maturity when your flesh is near its death, for the end of warmth comes. The cycle of the warmth from the beginning to the end is for the spiritual birth to produce out of the Word (Seed) of Life that is sown in your sanctified heart. The cycle of the coldness (winter) is for the flesh minded who hibernates (sleeps) in the ground (kingdom of darkness) till the warmth (Light) comes to woke him up for the readiness of his spiritual growth.
The festival of ingathering, at the end of the year:
The festival of ingathering is your celebration of the spiritual production harvested at the end of (warmth) your spiritual maturity when your flesh dies in the beginning of its coldness/death, but your spiritual production is preserved for the beginning of your next warmth (Life after death) in the Kingdom of Life.
When thou gatherest in thy labours out of the field:
The time of your fleshly death comes like the fall of leaves but the seeds are preserved for their next warmth so your spiritual production (seeds) is preserved after its harvest in your field (heart) which is full of your spiritual labor during its warm season while living on the earth. What you gather spiritually is stored in your spiritual treasure (heart) for your new life in the Kingdom of Life.
All the males:
All the males are the heads of females, for the man is the outwardness and the woman is the inwardness where they depend on each other for the spiritual production. The separation of man and woman is like the man can not do himself and likewise the woman can not do herself. 1 Cor. 7:4 “The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does; and likewise also the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does.” Both are yet to serve (love) each other, to work together upon their agreement in one where there is peace and happiness. The reason for the male which is the head of female is that the seed (head) is the beginning to plant (outside) so that the female is to produce his seed (inside) to the full, because the head (seed) must be sanctified before it can be produced in the womb (1 Cor. 7:14). Adam, the first one was created in His image and cannot do himself without his helper Chauwah (Eve), although they failed the test of not eating at the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. The second Adam (Yahushua) has overcome the temptation of Satan to become the head of His Bride (Elect ones).
Three times in the year shall all thy males appear before YHWH, Elohim:
All the males (heads) are sanctified with three times thru the eternal feasts (Passover/Messiah), (Shavuot/Holy Spirit), (Sukkot/Father dwelling in your tabernacle/heart) so they appear always before YHWH our Holy One. Matt. 28:19 mentions to baptize (sanctify) them in the name of the Father (Sukkot) and the Son (Passover) and Holy Spirit (Shavuot), with the understanding to begin with the sanctification by His Son, then the receipt of Holy Spirit, and finally the dwelling of the Father in the sanctified heart.
Exodus 11:14 “And this day shall be to you for a memorial, and you shall keep it a feast to Yahuwah: throughout your generations you shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.”
Pesach [Yahushua our Messiah]:
1 Cor. 5:7-8 “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.”
Shavuot [Holy Spirit]:
Acts 2:1-4 “And when the day of Shavuot [Pentecost] was now come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of the rushing of mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues dividing a part, like as of fire; and it sat upon each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other languages, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”
Sukkot/Feast of Tabernacles [YHWH our Father]:
John 1:14 “And the Word became flesh, tabernacled among us (and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten of Father), full of grace and truth.”; 2 Cor. 5:1 “For we know that if the earthly house of our tabernacle is dissolved, we have a building from YHWH, a house not made with hands, eternal, in the heavens.”; Rev. 15:3 “And I heard a great voice out of the throne saying, Behold, the tabernacle of YHWH is with men, and He shall tabernacle with them, and they shall be His peoples, and YHWH Himself shall be with them, and be their Elohim.”
The beginning of year (warm season):
Ex. 12:2 “2. This month (Abib) shall be to you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.”; Rev. 22:13 “I am the Aleph and the Tau, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”
It is the beginning of heart change repentance prepared for the washing of the Passover Lamb (Yahushua the Messiah) to come to your door of your heart. The beginning of warm season is the sowing of His Word/seed in our hearts.
The end of year (warm season):
Ex. 34:22 “...the feast of ingathering [Sukkot] at the year’s end.”
Matt. 13:36-40 “Then He left the multitudes, and went into the house: and His disciples came to Him, saying, Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field. And He answered and said, He that sows the good seed is the Son of man; and the field is the world; and the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; and the tares are the sons of the evil one; and the enemy that sowed them is the devil: and the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered up and burned with fire; so shall it be in the end of the world.”; Heb. 3:14 “For we are made partakers of Messiah, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end.”
The end of the feast of Sukkot is to complete the warm season (reaping). It is the end of the fleshly age for the flesh to die.
Rom. 13:11-13 “And this, knowning the season, that already it is time for you to awake out of sleep: for now is salvation nearer to us than when we first believed. The night is far spent, and the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Let us walk becomingly, as in the day; not in revealing and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and jealousy.”; 1 Cor. 15:34 “Awake to soberness righteously, and sin not; for some have no knowledge of YHWH: I speak this to move you to shame.”; Eph. 5: 14-15 “Therefore He says, Awake, you that sleep, and arise from the dead, and the Messiah shall shine upon you. Look therefore carefully how you walk, not as unwise, but as wise.”
The season of winter is for the cold-hearted, the foolish the stiffnecked or the stumbling-block to dwell in. Blessed are they when they are awake from the sleep [hibernation] of the winter [cold-heartedness, darkness], and to know His love bringing the warmth in their hearts, for the winter is melted away. The few are called to awake from their sleep to serve YHWH, but many are asleep in the winter [worldly minded lawlessness or traditions/customs or dark sayings]. Matt. 9:37 “Then says He to His disciples, The harvest indeed is plenteous, but the laborers are few.”
Interesting verses of apocryphal books to read:
From the Lost Books of the Bible [3 Hermas 3] “For this world is as the winter to the righteous men, because they are not known, but dwell among sinners. As in the winter all the trees having lost their leaves, are like dry trees; nor can it be discerned which are dry and which are green: so in this present world neither the righteous nor wicked are discerned from each other; but they are all alike.”
Wisdom of Solomon [Apocrypha] 16: 29 “For the hope of the unthankful shall melt away as the winter’s hoar frost, and shall run away as unprofitable water.”
Gospel of Philip 7-8 “Those who sow in winter reap in summer. The winter is the world; the summer the other aeon. Let us sow in the world so that we may reap in the summer. On account of this it is seembly for us not to pray in the winter. That which comes out of the winter is the summer. But if someone reaps in winter, he really will not be reaping, but he will be tearing things out, since this will not produce . . . not only will it [not] produce . . . but on the Shabbat [his field] is unfruitful.”; 109 “By perfecting the water of baptism, Yahushua emptied it of death. Thus we do go down into the water, but we do not go down into death in order that we may not be poured out into the spirit of the world. When that spirit blows, it brings the winter. When the holy spirit breathes, the summer comes.”
All the males appear before YHWH:
1 Cor. 11:3-9 “But I would have you know, that the head of every man is the Messiah; and the head of woman is the man; and the head of the Messiah is YHWH...he is the image and glory of YHWH: but the woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man: for neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.”
The head of man is the Word (Messiah) received from YHWH. The head of woman is the man (the Word received thru the Messiah) planted in the heart of purity for the spiritual production. Everyone has the father (word) and the mother (product) in his/her heart, likewise we, the members of the spirit-filled Body of Messiah, have our heavenly Father, YHWH (Word planted) and the Holy Spirit (Word performed). The Lamb (the Word) and we, the bride of Lamb (Body of Messiah - the doers of the Word), are in the eternal marriage of spiritual Life. Rev. 19: 7-9 “...for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife has made herself ready. And it was given to her that she should array herself in fine linen, bright and pure: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints...Blessed are they that are bidden to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he says to me, These are true words of YHWH.”
On the three annual Festival pilgrimages to the Temple (P52):
All the Spirit filled have three festival pilgrimages (in the name of His Son (Passover), His Spirit (Shavuot), the Father (Sukkot)) in their hearts (temple of His holiness).
Mitzvah P53: Exodus 34:23 - On appearing before YHWH during the Festivals (Deuteronomy 16:16)
v.23-24 “Three times in the year shall all thy males appear before YHWH Elohim, the El of Yisrael. For I will cast out nations before thee, and I will enlarge thy border(s); neither shall any covet thy land, when thou goest up to appear before YHWH Eloheyak (your El) three times in the year.”
The El of Yisrael:
YHWH is the El (Mighty One) of all Yisrael (true overcomers in all tests of His Law of Life) who are called out of the lawless nations where all the flesh births come out first and do the deeds of lawlessness.
I will cast out nations before thee:
When you are come to His Light upon your repentance, YHWH shall cast out all the works of lawlessness (the practices of lawless nations) out of your heart before you can be sanctified in receiving His Spirit of YHWH and in dwelling in the tabernacle of Him.
I will enlarge thy borders:
As you seek more spiritual things out of His Kingdom while growing in the level of your spiritual maturity, YHWH shall enlarge your borders (horizons of knowledge to understand more of His true teachings so that you are able to overcome the challenges of all the tests against you in the trials of your spiritual life.
Heathen cast out:
Lev. 18:24-30 “Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you...”; 20:23 “And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them.”; Deut. 6:19 “To cast out all thine enemies from before thee..”; 7:1; 9:4; Jos. 13:12; 2 King 16:3; 17:8; 21:2; 2 Chr. 28:3; 33:2; Ps. 18:42 “Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.”; 78:55 “He cast out the heathen...”; 80:8-9 “...thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it...”
Flesh is our enemy. Rom. 8:6-10 “For the mind of the flesh is death; but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace: because the mind of the flesh is enmity against YHWH; for it is not subject to the law of YHWH, neither indeed can it be: and they that are in the flesh cannot please YHWH. But you are not in the flesh but the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of YHWH dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of the Messiah, he is none of his. And if the Messiah is in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the spirit is life because of righteousness.”; James 4:4 “You adulteresses, do you not know that the friendship of the world is enmity with YHWH? Whoever therefore would be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of YHWH.”
We cast out the works of the heathen of our hearts for they are perishable and lawless.
Deut. 12:20 “When YHWH thy Elohim shall enlarge thy border, as he hath promised thee...”; 19:8; Isa. 54:2 “Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes.”
John 10:10 “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”; 2 Cor. 6:11; Eph. 3:17-19 “That Messiah may dwell in your hearts by faith: that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height: And to know the love of Messiah, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of Elohim.”
Enlarge your spiritual growth in Messiah so cast out the fleshly works daily, as John 3:30 says “He (of the Spirit) must increase, but I (of the flesh) must decrease.”; 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.” To enlarge thy border of the land is your spiritual fullness of Kingdom of Life.
Neither shall any covet thy land:
No flesh minded can steal you away from your land (Kingdom of Life) where you dwell in His tabernacle for you have been sanctified in His Son and given the temple of Holy Spirit in your heart. John 10:28 mentions that no one snatches you away from His hand once you are sanctified in His Kingdom (Promised land).
When thou goest up to appear before YHWH Eloheyak (your El) three times in the year:
When you are called out of the lawless nations that belong to the fleshly minded, for you are sanctified in the name of His Son (Passover), His Spirit (Shavuot), and the Father who dwells in His tabernacle (Kingdom of heaven) and are His offerings daily before YHWH in the pure consummation for the valuation of your spiritual production.
On appearing before YHWH during the Festivals (P53):
We, the Spirit filled, always appear before YHWH daily because we are sanctified in all the festivals thru His Son (Passover), His Spirit (Shavuot), bringing us in His tabernacle to dwell eternally.
