God gave to Moses seven days. These days describe God's plan of redemption. The Spring Feasts
of Passover, Unleavened Bread and Firstfruits were fulfilled with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Weeks was fulfilled the day God gave the Law to Moses and the Holy Spirit to the Church at Pentecost
. The last three feasts are fulfilled with the return of Jesus Christ. These days are the seven days of God.
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3-4
Teshuvah - Return & Repent
Before Trumpets, Atonement and Tabernacles, there is a time of Teshuvah
. After forty days, Moses cut two tablets and returned to God a second forty days. Teshuvah
means to repent and return. During the Hebrew month of Elul
at the end of morning prayers, the shofar is blown. While Moses was on Mt. Sinai, the people wake up, review their lives and prepare for the high holy days. They repent of their sins to God and others and change their ways.
The Lord said unto Moses, Hew two tables of stone like the first: and I will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables, which you broke. And he was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments (Exodus 34:1, 28
Tishri - New Year
The Jewish month of Tishri
is the beginning and the end. It is the first month of the civil calendar and the seventh month of the religious calendar. Tishri
means beginning. The first book of the Bible is Genesis or Aleph b'Tishri
. Jewish tradition says Adam was created on the 1st of Tishri
. God created the world in six days and He rested the seventh so man rules 6000 years
and then Jesus Christ rules 1000 years. When time comes full circle, Tishri
is the beginning and end of time.
In the beginning [On the first of Tishri
], God created the heaven and the earth (Genesis 1:1
