The Fall Feasts Seen in the Book of Revelation
Accurate eschatology can be seen in Leviticus 23 in the Seven Feast of the Lord. The first four were fulfilled soon after Jesus was crucified then after 40 years like in the wilderness with Moses the last three were fulfilled in the fall of AD70.
The Fall Feast were the Feast of Trumpets, The Feast of the Day of Atonement and The Feast of Tabernacles or Booths. I’m not going to go into great details here but I recommend that everyone watch the videos on Youtube from the Berean Bible Church on the series of the Seven Feast of the Lord by David B. Curtis. Especially on the Fall Feasts .Here is a link that you can copy and paste to find if then scroll down to The Seven Feast of the Lord.
These three feast came after the Spring Feast which were The Feast of Passover, The Feast of Un-leaven Bread, The Feast of First-Fruits and the Feast of Weeks or Shavuot. There was a four month dry period from the spring feast to the fall feast and these feasts were feasts of the LORD. The anti-type of those four months was a forty year period which was one generation also associated with the 1000 year reign of Christ. Then the anti-type of the Fall Feasts were fulfilled after 40 years from when the Spring Feasts were fulfilled during the time Christ was crucified to the Day of Pentecost.
The Fall Feast were a type of the events that would occur right at the time of the end of the Age when Jerusalem and the Temple were destroyed.
The Book of Revelations seems to be a series of events that over lap each other. Without getting technical about it, it’s like taking the Book of Revelations and splitting it into four or five sections where the sections go through the time frame where they all start out at the same time and end at the same time but they give us a different series of events but all of them happened during the same time frame. It would have been like in todays world setting up four or five video cameras in different parts of a city that had different things going on at the same time and then watching them all later and trying to figure out how it all played out and where each event occurred within a local area.
The Fall Feasts began at the end of the Age in AD70. The Feast of Trumpets fulfillment began in August or September when the Temple was destroyed and the resurrection of the dead occurred. The Feast of Trumpets was the first fall feast with the blowing of trumpets was similar to the walls of Jericho coming down in according to Joshua 6:1–27. Some interesting things that happened with the walls of Jericho coming down are that it was one of the first things that happened as soon as Moses lead God’s people into the promised land. The other things that happened was that God said that if anyone was to rebuild that city that they would be cursed.
Not related to the walls of Jericho coming down was that God stopped providing manna for His people to eat as soon as they entered into the promised land. The thing that coming to my mind is that when the first centuries saints during those 40 years of waiting for the second appearing of Christ in AD70 is that there were a few things that stopped as well. Things that were associated with coming out of their bondage to sin like water baptism and having Adam as the father of humanity along with the death Adam died when he sinned.
The Feast of Trumpets also represented the sound of the trump where the dead rise both the just and the unjust for judgment with the second appearing of Christ. During The Feast of Trumpets the announcement of the inviting to all the 70 nations of the Earth to attend the marriage of the Lamb for the Feast of Tabernacles. The Seventh Trumpet was an announcement to the resurrection of the dead. Rev. 11: 15-19
The the Feast of the Day of Atonement was a day of fasting and a High Sabbath Day of rest. It was the only day where faster was required by law and had to be observed. It was the Judgment Day where Jesus Christ returned as the High Priest who entered into the Most Holy Place with His blood for acceptance by the Father which could not be done while the Temple still stood according to Hebrews 9: 8.
There was many animals being sacrificed on that day because it was the main day of all the feast to cover their sins but Jesus did not come to cover sins but to do away with them. Before Jesus became that final sacrifice for sins animals were used in type of what Jesus would do and the blood was poured into bowls. In Revelation 15: 1 Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous: seven angels having the seven last plagues, for in them the wrath of God is complete. Then in chapter 16 there are seven bowls mentioned there. The Feast of the Day of Atonement was a very solemn day because everything depending on their sins being forgiven. Today in modern day Israel keep Yom Kippur, also known as the Day of Atonement, is the holiest day of the year in Judaism. Its central themes are atonement and repentance. Jews traditionally observe this holy day with a day-long fast and intensive prayer, often spending most of the day in synagogue services but they have a few serious problems. They have no temple which makes it impossible to keep the law. The other problem they have is that there is no Levitical Priesthood that can be proven because their records were destroyed back in AD70 and by law it required proof of their genealogy in Nehemiah 7: 64 These sought their listing among those who were registered by genealogy, but it was not found; therefore they were excluded from the priesthood as defiled.
The seventh Feast was the Feast of Tabernacles or Booths which the antitype is the New Heaven and Earth and the marriage of Christ and the first century Church and when God would tabernacle with His people and fellowship with them. This It was required that all the nations of the Earth to attend this Feast for a blessing or they would be cured with no rain. Revelation 21 was foreseeing this event. 1Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
The number seven plays an important part because it means completeness. In the Book of Revelation there are Seven Churches in chapters 2 and 3. Seven lamps of fire which are the Seven Spirits of God in chapter 4. Seven Seals in chapters 6 and 7. Six Trumpets in chapters 8 and 9. Seven Thunders which seem to be Angels in chapter 10 then the final Trumpet in chapter 11 which was the Seventh Trumpet. Seven Bowls in chapter 16.
I’m not sure what all of these things meant, I just look for the main things that convince me that all of these events were all fulfilled in AD70 without going into detail what everything could have meant. There are a lot of people out there who have made claims to what they mean but most of them were probably wrong.
The Seven Trumpets in Revelation 8-11 caught my attention because they seem to be associated with the Feast of Trumpets as well as the walls of Jericho coming down. It seemed to me that a few of the Seven Trumpet and Seven Bowl events are very similar to the things that happened to Egypt when Moses was dealing with the Pharaoh before he let God’s people go free. Chapter 18 kind of wraps up things with the final destruction of the city and temple to bring the conclusion of the Feast of Trumpets.
The Feast of the Day of Atonement is seen in Revelation 19:1 Salvation and glory and honour and power belong to the Lord our God! 2 For true and righteous are His judgments, because He has judged the great harlot who corrupted the earth
The Feast was the Feast of Tabernacles or Booths is seeing things all things made new and a view of God’s Kingdom opened up to the Tree of Life which had been off limited during the old Age from Adam to AD70 where all the nations of the Earth were included in the New Heaven and Earth. People have a choice to either have faith in Christ and be partakers in His Heavenly domain and eat from the Tree of Life or be outside of gates to the New Jerusalem where they dwell in Outer Darkness.
