The Lesser / Forgotten Feast

Updated: May 18, 2019


"And you shall count for yourselves from the day after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven Sabbaths shall be completed. Count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath...And you shall proclaim on the same day that it is a holy convocation to you. You shall do no customary work on it. It shall be a statute forever in all your dwellings throughout your generations." --Leviticus 23:15-21 (NKJV)


This High Sabbath Day is most popularly known as Pentecost, within Scripture it is called the Feast of Weeks or Shabuwa in the Hebrew. Pentecost is a Greek word meaning fifty. Unlike all other High Sabbath Days, this one is not fixed to a specific day of the month; but we are told to count fifty days to determine when it is to be observed. It's observance is famously documented in the so-called New Testament within Acts chapter 2 with the very first blessing of the Set-Apart Spirit amongst the faithful.


"When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them....When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken...how is it that each of us hears them in our native language?" --Acts 2:1-8 (NIV)


Despite the blasphemous, foolish practice of some Christians; 'speaking in tongues' simply means to speak in a different language or more accurately; the miracle occurs in the hearing not the speaking as each individual hears the speaker speaking in their own native language!


Additionally, this is one of the three High Sabbaths wherein Yah commands all able-bodied males to appear before Him in Yerushalayim.


"Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before Yahuwah thy Eloah in the place which He shall choose; in the Feast of Unleavened Bread and in the Feast of Weeks and in the Feast of Tabernacles and they shall not appear before Yahuwah empty." --Deuteronomy 16:16

.

We feel there is much more significance in that statement than initially meets the eye; but more on that later. Nearly everyone and I mean EVERYONE follows the 'traditional count' when determining Pentecost / Feast of Weeks. And just as foretold within Scripture, they are ALL wrong; just as they are in their observance/determination of the Weekly and Yearly Sabbaths.


"....And ALL the Children of Yahshar'el will forget….the Months and Seasons and Sabbaths….and walk according to the feasts of the Gentiles after their error and after their ignorance." --Jubilees 6:34-36


The traditional Pentecost count by nearly ALL is 7 Sabbaths plus 1 day for a total of 50 days from the wave sheaf offering (barley harvest). For a very long time I followed the masses and never questioned the logic. Thusly, in an effort to correct the error of my ways, Yah recently lead me to an article online which challenged the traditional view and opened my eyes!


7 Shabuwa NOT Fifty Days


For years now, I have erroneously referred to the Wave-Sheaf offering as Firstfruits; which was prophetically fulfilled by Messiah. Now while it is a 'first fruits' in it's own right; it is not THE Firstfruits of Scripture. That distinction belongs solely to Pentecost/Feast of Weeks! I now believe the true count to the Feast of Weeks/Pentecost is 7 Sabbaths plus 50 days! The reasons supporting this new view are many; but as always, let's start with Scripture itself. The Jubilee Year occurs in the fiftieth year and this is how Yah describes it....


"And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years....And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout all the land... A Jubilee shall that fiftieth year be unto you....it shall be holy unto you..." --Leviticus 25:8-12


Now let's compare that to how Pentecost/Feast of Weeks is described.....


"And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath....seven sabbaths shall be complete; even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days..."

--Leviticus 23:15-1612


Now think of this folks, IIF it were as simple as numbering seven Sabbaths and one day; wouldn't Scripture have plainly stated so as Yah did regarding the Jubilee year?! Why did Yah not simply say 'and the day after the seventh Sabbath shall ye observe the Feast Of Weeks'?? IIF it were as simple as counting fifty days; why did He not plainly say so as He did regarding the Jubilee year?? This was not Messiah speaking to unbelievers in parables this was the initial establishment of the Law/Sabbaths!! With that being said, let's examine a few other translations and see how they translated the command...


"Even unto the morrow after the seventh Sabbath shall ye number fifty days..." --Leviticus 23:16 (21st Century King James Version)


"even to the next day after the seventh Sabbath you shall number fifty days...." --Leviticus 23:16 (World English Bible)


"You shall also count for yourselves from the day after the Sabbath....seven Sabbaths. They must be complete. Then after the seventh Sabbath, you shall count fifty days...."

--Leviticus 23:16 (Ferrar Fenton Version)


I believe these three translations make it clear; after the seven Sabbaths are complete, we are to count an additional fifty days to determine Pentecost!!


Note additionally, that Scripture is specific in noting that our count must be of a 'complete' Sabbath. The Hebrew word translated as 'complete' is Tamiym, Strongs#08549, meaning complete, whole, entire. It was also translated into the English as 'without blemish', 'without spot', 'perfect', 'upright' and 'full'.


"These are the generations of Noah; Noah was a just man and perfect[08549] in his generations and Noah walked with Eloah." -Genesis 6:9


"Your lamb shall be without blemish[08549]..." --Exodus 12:5


"And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath...seven sabbaths shall be complete[08549]." --Leviticus 23:15 (KJV)


"From the day after the Sabbath...count off seven full[08549] weeks." (NIV)


"You shall count seven full[08549] weeks from the next day after the Sabbath..." (Modern English Version)


"You shall also count for yourselves from the day after the Sabbath....seven Sabbaths. They must be complete[08549]." (Ferrar Fenton Version)


The Feast of Shabuwa


As we said earlier, Pentecost is a Greek word meaning fifty; however in the Hebrew this feast day is called the Feast of Weeks. The English word translated ‘weeks’ is Shabuwa in the Hebrew; Strong's #: 07620 meaning seven, a period of seven days or years, a week.


"In the first month, in the fourteenth day of the month, ye shall have the Passover, a feast of seven days[07620], unleavened bread shall be eaten." --Ezekiel 45:21


"And you shall observe the Feast of Shabuwa[07620], of the firstfruits of wheat harvest..."

--Exodus 34:22


"Also on the day of the firstfruits, when you bring a new grain offering to Yahuwah at your Feast of Shabuwa[07620], you shall have a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work"

--Numbers 28:26


"Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear Yahuwah our Eloah, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season. He reserveth unto us the appointed shabuwa[07620] of the harvest." --Jeremiah 5:24


"You shall count seven shabuwa[07620] for yourself; begin to count the seven shabuwa[07620] from the time you begin to put the sickle to the grain. Then you shall keep the Feast of Shabuwa[07620] to Yahuwah your Eloah...." --Deuteronomy 16:9-10


So clearly in the very title of the feast itself, it affirms that we are to count shabuwa’s or periods of seven days! Thusly observing our calendar below, you will notice that the next Sabbath is not a shabuwa / full 7 days later!! The next Sabbath consists of 6 days as we must observe a High Sabbath on the 21st day of the same month! Additionally, after we observe our very first full Sabbath two days later, we have another High Sabbath on the 1st day of the 2nd Month. Which is why Yah was specific in telling us that our 7 Sabbath count must be shabuwa /complete or 'full' Sabbaths not High Sabbaths.

Therefore IIF Scripture endorsed observing a repeating, never-ending 7-day (Satur-day) Sabbatical cycle; there would be absolutely no need for Yah to make these statements as all of your Sabbaths are always a full 7 days!! All of the above facts themselves, are further proof that observance of a repeating, never-ending Sabbatical cycle of 7 days is false!


Understanding Biblical Harvest Seasons


There are three Biblical Watch seasons that not so coincidentally, align with the agriculture harvest seasons of the land. In early spring we had the barley harvest, in the summer we had the wheat harvest and in the fall we had the 'great ingathering/harvest' which was the harvest of everything else that was planted prior. We all know how Scripture often compared salvation to harvesting.


"For thus saith Yahuwah of Hosts, the Eloah of Yahshar'el; The daughter of Babylon is like a threshing floor, it is time to thresh her; yet a little while and the time of her harvest shall come."

--Jeremiah 51:33


"And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, 'Thrust in thy sickle and reap, for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe'." --Revelation 14:15


"Therefore said He unto them, 'The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few; pray ye therefore the Master of the harvest, that He would send forth labourers into His harvest."

--Luke 10:2


"Another parable put He forth unto them, saying, 'The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field; but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat...The servants said unto him, wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them; but gather the wheat into my barn." --Matthew 13:24-30


Now the novice will read this parable and think , 'oh He's talking about the believers vs. non-believers, the 'good' vs. the 'bad'; at one time I thought the same as well. However, I now feel this parable was describing something that most of you may find inconceivable, despite the truth staring us in the face! Even today's modern scientist are now acknowledging what Scripture told us long ago, we just refused to believe it's words. If you haven't already, be sure to check out our 2-part video series on The Wheat vs The Tares.


Now back to the harvest seasons; the spring harvest aligned with Passover, Unleavened Bread and the Wave Sheaf Offering of the barley harvest which were all fulfilled by Messiah. He was the Passover lamb of Yah, the sinless/unleavened bread from Heaven and the very first fruits of the harvest of Yahshar'elites. The summer harvest aligns with Pentecost/Feast of Weeks. The fall harvest aligns with Tabernacles/Feast of Ingathering. We believe this timeline of harvests, specifically regarding the spring and summer crops, is supported in the story of the plagues of Egypt.


"Then Yahuwah said to Moses, 'Stretch out your hand toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt'...And Moses stretched out his rod toward heaven and Yahuwah sent thunder and hail and fire darted to the ground. And Yahuwah rained hail on the land of Egypt...Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Yahshar'el were, there was no hail...Now the flax and the barley were struck, for the barley was in the head and the flax was in bud. But the wheat and the spelt were NOT struck, for they are late crops."

--Exodus 9:22-32


"The flax and barley were destroyed, since the barley had headed and the flax was in bloom. The wheat and spelt however, were not destroyed; because they ripen later." --NIV


I think we all agree, the plagues of Egypt occurred during the season of Passover which is around the middle of the 1st Month. Barley is a spring crop and wheat is a summer crop; Scripture tells us that the barley was just beginning to mature/bloom and we are to believe, that the wheat would be fully mature a month and a half later?! But wait, there's more!


Our claim that wheat is a summer harvest is also supported by a statement from Messiah Himself...


"Say not ye, There are yet four months and then cometh harvest?..." --John 4:35


"The harvest is past, the summer has ended..." --Jeremiah 8:20


Even Jeremiah seems to indicate that there is a summer harvest!


It is said that wheat takes approximately 120 days to mature before harvesting. That is approximately 4 months from seed to harvest.


"Say not ye, There are yet four months and then cometh harvest?..." --John 4:35


With that being said, consider the following...


"..the Feast of Harvest, the firstfruits of your labors which you have sown in the field...The first of the firstfruits of your land you shall bring into the house of Yahuwah your Eloah..."

--Exodus 23:16-19


"...it came to pass that Yahuwah spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ assistant saying; 'Moses My servant is dead. Now therefore, arise, go over this Jordan...to the land which I am giving to them...Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you'..." --Joshua 1:1-3


"Now the people came up from the Jordan on the tenth day of the first month and they camped in Gilgal on the east border of Jericho." --Joshua 4:19


Scripture tells us that Joshua led the children of Yahshar'el into the Promised land on the 10th day of the 1st Month. Their first conquest was the city of Jericho which lasted for approximately 7 days; therefore in order to fulfill the Feast of Weeks, Yahshar'el must plant and harvest their wheat in approximately 50 days, which any farmer/grower of wheat would tell you is impossible!


Therefore IIF we observe Pentecost on the day after the seventh Sabbath we would be harvesting the wheat during the first week of the 3rd month and this is not supported by Scripture nor our understanding of the growth cycle of wheat. But wait, there's more!


It is said by some that Pentecost/Feast of Weeks is a memorial of the giving of the Law. Now while I cannot fully endorse that view; I do find it interesting that exactly 50 days from the Yahshar'elites arrival at Mount Sinai, Moses descended from the Mountain of Yah with the 2 Tablets of Stone written by the Finger of Yah!


“They departed from Rameses in the 1st month, on the 15th day of the 1st month…..”

--Numbers 33:3


In the 3rd month after the children of Yisrael had gone out of the land of Egypt, on the same day, they came to the Wilderness of Sinai….and camped in the wilderness." --Exodus 19:1-2


The 15th day of the 3rd Month is exactly 7 complete weekly Sabbaths after Firstfruits (16th day of the 1st Month). Although we have a Sabbath on the 21st day of the 1st Month; it is not a Weekly Sabbath it is a High Sabbath with only 5 working days between Sabbaths.

"And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete; even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days..."



"And Yahuwah said unto Moses, 'Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and tomorrow and let them wash their clothes and be ready against the third day: for the third day Yahuwah will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai'." --Exodus 19:10-11


This was spoken to Moses on the same day they arrived at Mount Sinai; the 15th day. Therefore when Yah said unto Moses "today (15th day) and tomorrow (16th)...be ready against the third day (17th)" He was clearly going to appear before Yahshar'el on the 17th day of the 3rd Month! So as of now, we only have a total of 2 days after the 7th Sabbath.


".And it came to pass on the third day in the morning....Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with Eloah...And Yahuwah came down upon Mount Sinai...." --Exodus 19:16-20


"And Eloah spake all these words, saying 'I am Yahuwah thy Eloah, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage....And all the people saw the thunderings and the lightnings and the noise of the trumpet and the mountain smoking and when the people saw it, they removed and stood afar off...And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us and we will hear; but let not Eloah speak with us, lest we die...and Moses drew near unto the thick darkness where Eloah was." --Exodus 20:1-21


"And Moses came and told the people all the words of Yahuwah and all the judgments and all the people answered with one voice and said, 'All the words which Yahuwah hath said will we do'. And Moses wrote all the words of Yahuwah and rose up early in the morning, and builded an altar under the hill and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Yahshar'el...And he took the Book of the Covenant and read in the audience of the people and they said, 'All that Yahuwah hath said will we do and be obedient. And Moses took the blood and sprinkled it on the people and said, 'Behold the blood of the Covenant, which Yahuwah hath made with you concerning all these words'." --Exodus 24:3-8


Notice in verse 4, Scripture says Moses "rose up early in the morning" (18th day of the 3rd Month). This is why I said earlier, that I cannot fully endorse the idea/tradition that Pentecost/Feast of Weeks is a memorial of the giving of the Law as it was actually spoken by Yah on the 17th and sealed by a blood Covenant on the 18th. So if you followed along closely; you should now see that we are on Day 3 of our 50 day count to Pentecost/Feast of Weeks.


"And Yahuwah said unto Moses, 'Come up to Me into the mount and be there and I will give thee Tables of Stone and a Law and Commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them'...And Moses went up into the mount and a cloud covered the mount...the cloud covered it six days and the seventh day He called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud."

--Exodus 24:12-16


Seven plus three is what class?? That's right, now we are on Day 10 of our 50 day count to Pentecost/Feast of Weeks.


"So Moses went into the midst of the cloud and went up into the mountain. And Moses was on the mountain forty days and forty nights." --Exodus 24:18

And 10 plus 40 gives us 50 days to the date!! Now is that a coincidence or is Yah trying to show us something?? Exactly 50 days after their arrival at Mount Sinai, Yah completed His work of defining the whole Law for Moses!! However what should have been a day for celebration turned into a day of judgment...


"Now when the people saw that Moses delayed coming down from the mountain, the people gathered together to Aaron and said to him, 'Come, make us gods that shall go before us'...And he received the gold from their hand and he fashioned it with an engraving tool and made a molded calf...So when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it. And Aaron made a proclamation and said, 'Tomorrow is a feast to Yahuwah'. Then they rose early on the next day, offered burnt offerings and brought peace offerings and the people sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play. And Yahuwah said to Moses, 'Go, get down! For your people whom you brought out of the land of Egypt have corrupted themselves....And Moses turned and went down from the mountain and the two tablets of the Testimony were in his hand...Now the tablets were the work of Eloah, and the writing was the writing of Eloah engraved on the tablets...So it was, as soon as he came near the camp, that he saw the calf and the dancing. So Moses’ anger became hot and he cast the tablets out of his hands and broke them at the foot of the mountain...And Moses said to Aaron, 'What did this people do to you that you have brought so great a sin upon them'?....then Moses stood in the entrance of the camp and said, 'Whoever is on the Yahuwah's side—come to me'! And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together to him. And he said to them, 'Thus says Yahuwah, Eloah of Yahshar'el, ‘Let every man put his sword on his side and go in and out from entrance to entrance throughout the camp and let every man kill his brother, every man his companion and every man his neighbor.’ So the sons of Levi did according to the word of Moses. And about three thousand men of the people fell that day. Then Moses said, 'Consecrate yourselves today to Yahuwah that He may bestow on you a blessing this day, for every man has opposed his son and his brother'.” --Exodus 32:1-29


So what we really had occurring exactly 50 days from the seventh Sabbath of Firstfruits, was a day when the Levites set themselves apart unto Yah by their willingness to stand against their own neighbors, brothers and sons and in doing so, gained a special blessing from Yah!


Additionally, when we compare the events that took place on that day, to the events that took place on Pentecost/Feast of Weeks in Acts Chapter 2; we find some very interesting parallels.


Moses descends from the Mountain of Yahuwah with the Law of Yahuwah written in stone by the Finger of Yahuwah to confirm the Old Covenant (Exodus 32:15)

The Spirit of Yahuwah descends from Heaven and writes the Commandments upon the hearts of the Yahshar'elites to confirm the New Covenant (Acts 2:41)


About 3,000 people died (Exodus 32:28)

About 3,000 people were saved (Acts 2:41)


But wait....there's more!!


Double-Sabbaths Dilemma


Another reason the traditional count cannot possibly be correct is because it would create the dreaded 'double-Sabbaths'! IIF we observe Pentecost the day after the seventh Sabbath we would be observing two Sabbaths back-to-back. One on the 7th day and the other on the 1st day. And as we discussed before; 'double-Sabbaths' are not documented anywhere within Scripture or in any other non-canonized biblical book!


If any of you have observed an independent, perpetual 7-day weekly Sabbatical cycle along with the Yearly/High Sabbath Days; then you must be aware of/experienced the dreaded ‘double-Sabbaths’! Regardless of how your particular group may establish the New Year; if you observe an independent, perpetual 7-day weekly Sabbath, you will eventually experience a ‘double-Sabbath’!


‘Double-Sabbaths’, as the name indicates, is where you have a weekly Sabbath falling the day after/before a High Sabbath Day (such as Unleavened Bread, Trumpets, Atonement or Tabernacles). The greatest probability for them to occur is within the ‘Fall Feasts’ as you must observe four High Sabbath Days and four weekly Sabbaths all within in a 21 day period!


In a previous post of ours regarding the true Sabbath and Calendar of Yah; we shared a snapshot for only a two year period for the folks at 119 ministries and it occurred 5 times within two years! 119 Ministries is one of the very few Christian ministries whom happens to teach and observe Yah’s Yearly/High Sabbath days along with the weekly Sabbath day. We also shared a snapshot for only a one year period for the brothers/sisters at IUIC and it occurred 4 times within one year!! Lastly for our brothers/sisters at the GOCC we shared a snapshot again for only a one year period and it occurred 7 times within a one year period!!


So is it reasonable to believe that with such overwhelming odds of having to observe a ‘double-Sabbath’ within a single calendar year; that Yah would not address it at all?! Can you imagine how often it would have occurred over a 40 year period for our ancestors in the wilderness?! Yet Yah breathed not a single word regarding it’s occurrence!! Understand, that for over forty years or so the ‘manna test’ was the only method by which Yahshar'el kept track of what day was a work day and which day was the Sabbath Day!!


“For the children of Yahshar'el walked forty years in the wilderness, till all the people…were consumed…Then Joshua circumcised their sons whom he raised up in their place…Now the children of Yahshar'el camped in Gilgal...the day after the Passover…Then the manna ceased on the day after…and the children of Yahshar'el no longer had manna….” --Joshua 5:6-12


Know and understand, the manna was not there just to feed the people; it was there to also inform them of what day was a 'work day' and what day was a Sabbath! There were no clocks and they had no calendar; as they had just arrived and Sabbath observance was brand new to them!


“And the people shall go out and gather a certain quota every day, that I may test them…And it shall be on the sixth day that they shall prepare…and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily.” --Exodus 16:4-5


“And Yahuwah said to Moses, How long do you refuse to keep My commandments and My laws? See, for Yahuwah has given you the Sabbath; therefore He gives you on the sixth day bread for two days.” --Exodus 16:28-29


Two days of bread works great if one has to observe only one Sabbath day; however, what was Yahshar'el to do for those inevitabledouble-Sabbaths’?! And as rough as I felt they were (I wouldn't even step outside my door during the Sabbath!); can you imagine how much rougher it would be if you lived in a desert environment and you and your kids had no food for one of those days?! Well clearly, that must have been the case for our ancestors, as Yah apparently provided notriple-portions’ of manna for those inevitable ‘double-Sabbaths’!!


Understand all other double-Sabbath occurrences are random; however IIF one uses the traditional count to Pentecost, it guarantees at least one double-Sabbath will be observed every single year!! So IIF Pentecost occurs exactly 7 Sabbaths (49 days) and one day (day 50) after Firstfruits; why isn’t it's inevitable ‘double-Sabbaths’ documented anywhere within Scripture?! Forty years should have brought about at least 40 'double-Sabbaths'; yet we are to believe that Yah knew this and offered no instructions to Moses, offered no triple-portions of manna to feed the people and breathed not a single word about it in any Scriptural book?!?!


Folks the reason you cannot finddouble-Sabbathsanywhere within Scripture is because the weekly Sabbath is not independent of Yah’s Yearly Sabbaths it occurs in harmony with them on His Calendar!! As we have said before, the weekly Sabbath is intimately connected to the Yearly/Monthly Calendar of Yah! It is not an independent entitydoing it’s own thang’ running roughshod over His Yearly Sabbaths! And for those of you who ‘suffered silently, as I did for years, under this ‘burden’; be of good cheer, for when one properly observes Yah’s Sabbaths in truth the mire of ‘double-Sabbathsvanish; they simply do not exist on His Calendar!

"And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free." --John 8:32


For years I have been watching, anticipating our redemption in the 'Passover season'. So when this Passover season, of this proclaimed 400th year of our captivity, came and went with no known public appearance of the Two Witnesses or any word from Heaven; I will admit I became a little depressed and a little doubtful. Not doubtful of Yah and His promises but of my own calculations / teachings. I will confess that for the past few years I had not been observing Pentecost. I honestly cannot give you a specific reason why; it may have been my dread of it's 'Double-Sabbath' quandary but thank Yah for His mercy and patience! It turns out, the Feast Day that I neglected the most is THE Feast Day that pictures the day that I have anticipated the most; protection of the 'elect'.


"Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning.....that when [Elijah] comes and knocks they may open to him immediately. Blessed are those servants whom the Master, when He comes, will find watching. Assuredly, I say to you that He will gird himself and have them sit down to eat and will come and serve them. And if He should come in the second watch (summer harvest/Pentecost) or come in the third watch (fall harvest/Trumpets, Atonement, Tabernacles) and find them so [watching], blessed are those servants." --Luke 12:35-38


As we noted earlier, the 1st prophetic watch season has been fulfilled by Messiah. The next prophetic watch season, which occurs in the summer harvest of Pentecost/Feast of Weeks, was fulfilled in the disciples as described in Acts 2:1-4. Therefore the Fall Harvest/Prophetic watch season is the one that has yet to be fulfilled and the one we must look forward to with great anticipation in this proclaimed 400th year memorial of our final captivity!


The Christians who are aware of and observe these yearly feast days will tell you, that they are about the salvation of the world; we strongly disagree,. These feasts symbolized the reconciliation and restoration of Yahshar'el as a nation of Priests and Kings unto Yah.

We have proven and continually demonstrated in past posts and videos that prophecies often have multiple meanings and/or they have multiple fulfillments; a minor and a major. Case in point; Scripture teaches us that there shall be TWO Exodus events for the Yahshar'elites and that the latter shall be GREATER than the former. (Ezekiel 20:34, Jeremiah 16:14-17, 23:7-9) Now although Pentecost / Feast of Weeks was fulfilled during the times of the disciples (Acts Chpt.2); we believe there shall also be another last days fulfillment of Firstfruits!


"...They are the firstfruits to Yahuwah." --Leviticus 23:17


This ‘last days’ group of Firstfruits, symbolized by the Feast of Weeks harvest, shall be spared from the Great Tribulation (the 3 1/2 years period of the 2 Witnesses testimony and the reign of the Beast). Now the final and much larger harvest, symbolized by the Feast of Ingathering/Tabernacles, shall be spared from the Day Of Yahuwah; which begins with the opening of the Sixth Seal and onward. Be sure to check out our end-times prophecy series Planet X The Day Of Yahuwah and The Book Of Revelation Decoded

"And it shall come to pass in all the land' says Yahuwah. 'That two-thirds in it shall be cut off and die, but one-third shall be left in it. I will bring the one-third through the fire, will refine them as silver is refined and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My Name and I will answer them. I will say, ‘This is My people’; And each one will say, ‘Yahuwah is my Elohim'."

--Zechariah 13:8-9


If you carefully, read the beginning of Zechariah 13; it is clearly apparent that this IS a 'last days' prophecy which has yet to be fulfilled. It is expounded upon in the Book Of Revelation.


"After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes...Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, 'Who are these arrayed in white robes and where did they come from'? And I said to him, 'Sir, you know' So he said to me, 'These are the ones who come out of the Great Tribulation and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb'." --Revelation 7:9-14


"For many are called, but few are chosen." --Matthew 22:14


Scripture clearly tells us that only a 'chosen few' shall be taken to the 'place of safety' as a last days fulfillment of the Feast of Weeks/Firstfruits. We believe in accordance with Scripture that many of us SHALL NOT be taken to the 'place of safety' because of our HABITUAL BREAKING OF YAH'S TRUE SABBATHS!


"Hallow My Sabbaths and they will be a sign between Me and you, that you may know that I am Yahuwah your Eloah." --Ezekiel 20:20


"Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, I know Him and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of Yahuwah is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. " --1 John 2:3-5


"Yet you have not known Him, but I know Him. And if I say, I do not know Him, I shall be a liar like you; but I do know Him and keep His word." --John 8:55


So why did Messiah tell them He did not know them?? He knows you not, because you have not loved Him by obeying His Commandments and/or observing His Sabbaths!

Now we all know and universally agree regarding the obedience of His Laws primarily surmised in the 10 Commandments. However our divisions are revealed when we come to the 4th Command regarding Sabbath observance! The Christians claim Sun-day, while the Jews, Hebrews and Seventh Day Adventist's claim Satur-day. They are all wrong!!


IIF you are still observing a Satur-day only Sabbath, believe it or not; but you are STILL breaking ALL of Yah's Sabbaths!! We have further proved in this article that the observance of a repeating, never-ending 7-day (Satur-day) Sabbatical cycle cannot possibly be true!!

"You shall keep the Sabbath, therefore, for it is holy to you. EVERYONE who profanes it shall SURELY be put to DEATH; whoever does any work on it, that person shall be CUT OFF from among his people." --Exodus 31:14


Does everyone mean EVERYONE and does surely mean SHO' NUFF?? Apparently not, for the Sun-day observing Christian brothers and sisters as most are living well and some even thriving! Why is that so?! IIF Satur-day is the true Sabbath Day; how can they, and even you for that matter, violate it and still live, contrary to Scripture?! The only way one can escape this judgment is if one is NOT in covenant with Yahuwah!


Understand Yahshar’el; we have ALL been 'divorced' from Yah and once divorced, one is no longer required to abide by the conditions of the 'marriage Covenant'. Yah's Laws/Sabbaths are His 'conditions' for Covenant and each individual must make his/her own return unto Him thru repentance and obedience to His Laws/Sabbaths! And once the 'blood sacrifice' of Yahushuwah the Messiah, is applied to one's life thru faith in Him; then each one can be fully restored unto Yah via the New Covenant!


"For the time has come for judgment to begin at the House of Yahuwah..." --1 Peter 4:17


Know and understand Yahshar'el, that once the 2 Witnesses show up 'judgment' upon Yahshar'el will have officially begun again! We are currently living 'under the curses' and during this time Yah has 'suspended' judgment upon us. That is why you can break His Sabbaths and still live to see another day!


Well, what if one was mostly right and observed all of Yah's Laws but thru ignorance violated His Sabbath Day?? Now if you falsely believe that the blood of Messiah shall cover your continual/habitual Sabbath breaking; do you also believe that it would cover your continual sin of murder?? What of idol worship?? Honoring false gods too?! Ignorance of the Law offers no protection brothers and sisters!


"You shall keep the Sabbath...EVERYONE who profanes it shall SURELY be put to DEATH..."

--Exodus 31:14


"For whoever shall keep the whole law and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all." --James 2:10


"And that servant, which knew his lord's will and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes." --Luke 12:47-48


There you have it, ‘beaten with FEWER stripes’, but still ‘beaten’! It is no coincidence, that nearly 3 years in advance of our proclaimed 400th year in captivity; that the truth regarding Yah’s Weekly Sabbath Day and His Calendar was revealed to us!!


"I am the good shepherd and I know My sheep...and I lay down My life for the sheep. And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring and they will hear My voice and there will be one flock and one shepherd." --John 10:14-16


Some Christians will tell you that this was referring to 'the church'. A few other extreme groups will tell you that Messiah was referring to 'aliens from outer space'. I lie not! Even some amongst the Catholic Church have quietly promoted this idea. We say, all in harmony with what we believe to be, the soon coming 'strong delusion' spoken of in II Thessalonians.


"The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs and lying wonders and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason Eloah will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness." --2 Thessalonians 2:9-12


And for those who think, they shall be 'immune'; heed this warning from Scripture...


"For there shall arise false Messiahs and false prophets and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. [But] Behold, I have told you beforehand.." --Matthew 24:24-25


Understand, that the called are not the chosen and the chosen are not the elect! Nearly all of Yahshar'el have been called; but few have been chosen and even fewer are elected to positions of authority!


Within the Book of Daniel and the Book of Revelation he is known as 'The Beast'. We believe and teach that this deception will involve what they call 'aliens'; we know that they are simply fallen angels masquerading as 'aliens from space'! I believe many of us truly underestimate how powerful this delusion will be and according to Scripture many of our very own Hebrew Yahshar'elite brothers and sisters will have to 'face off' with this Beast and many of them shall die! Know and understand, that this ultimate deception has been in the works since the 'days of Noah'; be sure to check out our video series entitled 'Alien Evolution' for details.


"And they asked Him, saying, 'Why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?'. Then He answered and told them, 'Indeed, Elijah is coming first and restores all things'." --Mark 9:11-12


"And I will give power to My two witnesses and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days (42 months), clothed in sackcloth." -Revelation 11:3


We believe that the arrival of the Two Witnesses shall coincide with the commencement of the Great Tribulation. It is no coincidence that both events are prophesied to continue for 1,260 days/42 months/3 1/2 years.


"And the Dragon was enraged with the Woman and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of Yahuwah and have the testimony of Yahushuwah."

--Revelation 12:17


"...and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months...It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them...." --Revelation 13:5-7


"The holy people will be delivered into his hands for [42 months]." --Daniel 7:25


Additionally, it is no coincidence that the 'chosen' shall be taken to a 'place of safety' for a period of 1,260 days/42 months/3 1/2 years.


"Now when the Dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for [42 months], from the presence of the serpent....Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by Yahuwah, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days[42 months]." --Revelation 12:13-14, 6


Praise Yahuwah our Eloah who has promised to protect a chosen few from the wrath of the Adversary and his soon coming reign upon the earth.


"Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth." --Revelation 3:10


And for those of us who believe that the Abrahamic prophecy shall shortly be fulfilled in us, the modern day descendants of the Children Of Yahshar'el here in North America; Scripture says......

IT SHALL NOT BE FULFILLED FOR ALL!!


"...I will take you, ONE from a city and TWO from a family and I will bring you to Zion."

--Jeremiah 3:14

"Then two men will be in the field; ONE will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; ONE will be taken and the other left. Watch therefore, for you do not know what day/hour your Master is coming." --Matthew 24:40-42

Did you really get what Yah proclaimed?! Out of an entire city of millions, only one shall be saved from the soon coming Great Tribulation! Think of all the Hebrews in the city of Chicago or in the city of New York and Yah says He shall take only one!!

"For many are called, but few are chosen." --Matthew 22:14 During my 30+ years of study, it is my belief that when one is Called; he/she is called to repent of living a life in violation of the laws/ways of Yah. When one is Chosen; it means he/she has repented and now lives a life in obedience to the Law of Yah and has faith in the shed blood of His Son Yahushuwah for the remission of theirs sins and the reconciliation of their souls unto Yahuwah the Father. When one is Elected; he/she is placed into a position of authority over his/her brothers/sisters (ie the Prophets, Teachers, Kings and Priests).


"Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election..."

--2 Peter 1:10


So should this prophetic watch season come and go without the appearance of the 2 Witnesses nor the sequestering of the chosen to the 'place of safety'; then I shall bemoan with the words of Jeremiah.....


"The harvest is past, the summer is ended and we are not saved!" --Jeremiah 8:20
