I love that you're digging into the festivals, WW. As a new believer, the Lord led me to look up the names of people, places and things, to cement my faith. I saw just from that, that there was no way man had tampered that much with the book (one of my fears/oppositions to it). As IF......some people had the forethought to name their kids about significant things they would grow up to do/become.
It just wasn't HUMANLY possible. I also saw from that, that He was in control, but that's another story.
Then He led me to study the feasts, finally the tabernacle. The amazing thing is; ALL these things I've named are interrelated. The feasts you are studying, are actually patterned in the Tabernacle as well, and the principles of them are in the names of people, places and things.
Your comment about 280 days. That's 28 (moons) times 10. Ten is the number of completion. And I could break down 28 as two 10's and an 8. It's also four 7's; 4 (number of the world/earth) times 7 (number of His rest/peace).
The Lord gave me a dream/vision several years ago. It wasn't about me, but about the sons of God being perfected in the earth. I saw myself walking on a red earth path up a hill. I looked up and saw the moon thru the bare trees in the darkness of the night. It was almost full.
Just then the Lord spoke to me about the law being synonymous with the moon, and that when the fullness of the moon came, it was as the law being fulfilled in us spiritually, the same way it was fulfilled in Jesus, who became a son by the things that He suffered. It would be the same as being filled with His love (full moon).
Then the scene changed and I was not walking on a red earth path, but on a red carpet aisle in a church somewhere. At the front of it, in front of the pulpit, was a woman in a wheelchair. I walked up to her in the authority of the Spirit of God that the sons of God will walk in, did not touch her, but spoke loudly in the authority, "BE HEALED!"
Immediately, she jumped up and started screaming, crying, and praising God.
We are on the threshold of the greatest harvest the world has ever seen. There won't be one son of God walking the earth, but a many-membered body of HIM encased in flesh, perfected in His love, and empowered from on high, ie. from the Most High God. Saviors are about to arise on Mt. Zion (the highest peak), having walked in the red earth of man for a season, being perfected, that they might walk in the fullness of the Spirit without measure, like their elder brother did, the forerunner of them THAT GO BEYOND THE VEIL. Come Lord Jesus, come. Blessings...
PS to Reformer; interesting about the Zohar. I've never read it, but I've heard about it. I think it's interesting that when the oldest and most revered Kabbalah teacher died a couple of years ago in Israel, he left behind notes that said his studies had found that Yeshua was the Messiah. It caused quite a stir in the Jewish community. Just goes to show you He is bringing them in through all the gates. Blessings....
