Will HOLYDAY 3 Observance
Will HOLYDAY 3 observance be ENFORCED upon the CHURCH just as HOLYDAY 6 is ENFORCED upon the WORLD?
Notice how HOLYDAY 6 Observance (Feast of Booths/Tabernacles) will be ENFORCED upon the WORLD after Christ returns on HOLYDAY 4 to save the world:
22 “Unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.
16 Then it will come about that any who are left of all the nations that went against Jerusalem will go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to celebrate the Feast of Booths. 17 And it will be that whichever of the families of the earth does not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, there will be no rain on them. 18 If the family of Egypt does not go up or enter, then no rain will fall on them; it will be the plague with which the LORD smites the nations who do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Booths. 19 This will be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all the nations who do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Booths.
The Observance of HOLYDAY 6 (Feast of Booths/Tabernacles) will be ENFORCED after Christ returns to save the WORLD because those people at that time will be portraying and fulfilling the Millenium – the FALL HARVEST of the Kingdom of God during Christ’s thousand-year reign on the earth as a witness/testimony for those in the Second Resurrection on HOLYDAY 7 (Last Great Day) that God’s Way of Love is the only way to sustain an eternal life of happiness for all.
For the same reason, and as a TYPE for that FALL HARVEST, The Observance of HOLYDAY 3 (Pentecost) will be ENFORCED after Christ returns to save the CHURCH because those people at that time will be portraying and fulfilling the SPRING HARVEST of the Kingdom of God, the FIRSTFRUITS of living God’s Way of Love as a witness/testimony to the WORLD before the END of this age of Satan’s rule over the earth, in an effort to possibly convince the world to repent and thereby preclude God’s prophesied intervention/correction implemented as the Great Tribulation and the Seven Seals, Seven Trumpets and Seven Last Plagues that connected to HOLYDAY 4, the Feast of Trumpets.
10 “Sing for joy and be glad, O daughter of Zion; for behold I am coming and I will dwell in your midst,” declares the LORD. 11 “Many nations will join themselves to the LORD in that day and will become My people. Then I will dwell in your midst, and you will know that the LORD of hosts has sent Me to you.
9 And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are You to take the book and to break its seals; for You were slain, and purchased for God with Your blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. 10 “You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth.”
14 “This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.
20 The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, so as not to worship demons, and the idols of gold and of silver and of brass and of stone and of wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk; 21 and they did not repent of their murders nor of their sorceries nor of their immorality nor of their thefts.
11 and they blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores; and they did not repent of their deeds.
32 “For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone who dies,” declares the Lord GOD. “Therefore, repent and live.”
Now notice in Zech 14:16-19 that the punishment for not observing HOLYDAY 6 during the Millenium is only DROUGHT, and not any of the plagues mentioned in Revelation chapters 6-9 .
So then, is DROUGHT also prophesied for not observing HOLYDAY 3?
11 “Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord GOD, “When I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine for bread or a thirst for water, But rather for hearing the words of the LORD. 12 “People will stagger from sea to sea And from the north even to the east; They will go to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, But they will not find it.
Now famine is caused by DROUGHT.
So, whereas the WORLD will be punished with a PHYSICAL DROUGHT of no physical rain during the Millenium FALL HARVEST (HOLYDAY 6), the rebellious CHURCH will be punished with a SPIRITUAL DROUGHT of no spiritual rain of hearing the Word of the Holy Spirit during the PENTECOST SPRING HARVEST (HOLYDAY 3).
Now notice that the Holy Spirit will be poured out after HOLYDAY 2 is fulfilled, when Christ is “in the midst of Israel” (Church).
Joel 2:28, 21-27
28 “It will come about after this [after wilderness turns green on HOLYDAY 2] That I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; And your sons and daughters will prophesy, Your old men will dream dreams, Your young men will see visions.
21 Do not fear, O land, rejoice and be glad, For the LORD has done great things. 22 Do not fear, beasts of the field, For the pastures of the wilderness have turned green, For the tree has borne its fruit, The fig tree and the vine have yielded in full. 23 So rejoice, O sons of Zion, And be glad in the LORD your God; For He has given you the early rain for your vindication. And He has poured down for you the rain, The early and latter rain as before. 24 The threshing floors will be full of grain, And the vats will overflow with the new wine and oil. 25 “Then I will make up to you for the years That the swarming locust has eaten, The creeping locust, the stripping locust and the gnawing locust, My great army which I sent among you. 26 “You will have plenty to eat and be satisfied And praise the name of the LORD your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you; Then My people will never be put to shame. 27 “Thus you will know that I am in the midst of Israel, And that I am the LORD your God, And there is no other; And My people will never be put to shame.
So, then the SPIRITUAL DROUGHT must occur AFTER HOLYDAY 3 is fulfilled, because during HOLYDAY 3 the Holy Spirit is being poured out upon all mankind.
It appears that the part of the Church (the woman) that will experience this spiritual drought will be those who had not gathered to “her place in the wilderness”, the place where God will supernaturally protect them as prophesied in Rev 12:13-17. These are called “the rest of her children“.
13 And when the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. 14 But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. 15 And the serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood. 16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river which the dragon poured out of his mouth. 17 So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus.
Now WHY does God impose this SPIRITUAL DROUGHT punishment on the rebellious CHURCH, on those who have been called and invited to be part of the “Bride” that marries Christ on HOLYDAY 3, and yet have not responded by leaving their homes and gathering to the designated Desert Oasis miraculously created on HOLYDAY 2?
Is it not because of the CRUCIAL ROLE that these FIRSTFRUITS play in The SEVEN SIGNS of God’s HOLYDAY PLAN and His TWO-WITNESS STRATEGY that He is employing for the salvation of those in the second resurrection on HOLYDAY 7, called the LAST GREAT DAY?
The “two witnesses” are those who are in the SPRING and FALL HARVESTS (HOLYDAYS 3 & 6) and whose testimony will be needed for those who are resurrected to a second physical life on The Last Great Day (HOLYDAY 7), to show them that God’s WAY works, and is the only sustainable WAY for ALL to live in peace and happiness for an eternity. Without the testimony of these “two witnesses”, some may not be convinced of their real chance to become God-beings, and may lose out on an eternity of happiness with God and His new Divine Family!
The reason that the testimony of the FIRSTFRUITS of HOLYDAY 3, the SPRING HARVEST, is so crucial is because the FIRSTFRUITS will be the only ones that those in the second resurrection can truly identify and empathize with, since both they and the FIRSTFRUITS had to suffer the trials and temptations inflicted while living in a world under Satan’s rule. Those born in the Millenium will only have experienced life while under Christ’s rule.
This crucial testimony of the FIRSTFRUITS is WHY HOLYDAY 3 Observance will be ENFORCED… just as HOLYDAY 6 Observance will be… because TWO WITNESSES are needed to convince as many as possible that God’s WAY WORKS, and that each person CAN MAKE IT, AND BECOME PART OF GOD’S ETERNAL DIVINE FAMILY AND LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER!
2 Pet 3:9
The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.
