The Feasts & Human Childbirth
“Prophecy in the Festivals of Israel”
The average human pregnancy is 280 days. The ideal Jewish year (lunar) is 280 days starting at the spring equinox with the first day of Nisan. If a pregnancy started on the first day of spring, March 21st it would end on December 25th. This is in my opinion not the birth date of Yahshua, but it is the date of Hanukkah, “The Feast of Dedication. ” the 25th of Kislev. Yahshua attended this celebration as recorded in John 10:22. Also Hanukkah is a type of Yahshua, the “light of the Word.”
1. Passover The egg appears on the 14th day of the first month. In Lev. 23:5 Adonai instructs Moshe to observe Passover in the 14th day of the First Month. In the Passover Seder meal Jews use an egg on the Passover table as a symbol for New Life. The 14th day of a pregnancy brings the same thing as the 14th day of Passover: a chance for new life.
2. Feast of Unleavened Bread Within 24 hours fertilization must occur or the egg will pass, unfertilized and life unrealized. Planting of the seed. This is the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Yahshua the Sinless Savior died and was buried; planted for our sins, making it possible for us to have new life through reconciliation through Him to G-d.
3. Feast of First Fruits. Next, there is an indeterminate time that the egg travels down the tube toward the uterus and can take anywhere from two to six days before it implants. This suggests the festival of First Fruits the spring planting festival which also does not fall on a specific date, but occurs on Nissan 16, Day 1 of the Omer. This implantation gives rise to growth of a seed into a mature plant or in the case of human pregnancy a mature human being.
4. Shauvot or Pentecost. We now have a slowly developing embryo. It goes through stages before it becomes a fetus, which is the next big event. In these indiscriminate stages you can’t tell if the embryo is a fish, tadpole or anything relatively human. But on the fiftieth day it becomes a recognizable human fetus. From an embryo to a human being. On Shauvot or Pentecost 50 days after Passover the unregenerate Israelites became new creatures as Believers’ in a spiritual sense. They would now go on to another life outside their flesh bodies as the fetus would go on to another life outside its mother’s body.
5. Feast of Trumpets. Next, the most momentous occasion in the life of a pregnancy is at the beginning of the seventh month. This is when the baby’s hearing becomes fully developed. At the first day of the seventh month the baby can discriminate a sound for what it really is. For instance a trumpet is a trumpet which is the festival of Feast of Trumpets that occurs at this time. He can hear the call of the last trump of the “rapture.”
6. Yom Kippur-Day of Atonement. The next development in the fetus is the changing of the fetus’ blood into self-sustaining, self-circulating, and self-respirating that allows the baby to live outside it’s mother’s womb. It not being dependant upon the oxygen in the mother’s blood. This correlates to the blood that represents Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Each Believer must present unto YHVH blood that is acceptable, as in Yahshua and then there is life. The fetus must also present blood that is acceptable and mature, ready for self-sustained life.
7. Feast of Tabernacles The next development is when the lungs are developed which allows safe delivery of the baby. Its lungs are developed on the 15th and the baby can take its own air and live on it. This corresponds to the date of Feasts of Tabernacles. The Tabernacle is the House of the Spirit. Adonai breathed into Adam’s lungs and gave him life. Yahshua blew the Ruach ha Kodesh onto the disciples. In Eze. 37 HaShem says, “Come from four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live”.
8. Hanukkah 25th Kislev: The actual normal birth time is 280 days. From Passover to Hanukkah is 280 days. Hanukkah was prophesied by Daniel in Dan, 8:9-14 and took place in 165 BC when the Temple was dedicated. Hanukkah has to do with the Eternal Light and the Servant Lamp. Who is the Eternal Light but Yahshua, which foretells for us, what is beyond the Festivals; eternity with Adonai, His Son Yahshua the Eternal Light.
