Just as the Apostles were on-the-scene eyewitnesses of the literal physical fulfillment of Holyday 1 (Passover), so likewise will there also be commissioned a special group of people who will be on-the-scene eyewitnesses of the literal physical fulfillment of Holyday 2 (The Last Day of Unleavened Bread).
The TYPE for Holyday 2 occurred with miraculous Deliverance of God’s people on a dry land in the midst of the Red Sea.
The FULFILLMENT of Holyday 2 will also occur on a dry land in the desert wilderness, when it becomes a Garden of Eden Oasis and Sanctuary for God’s People from all over the world to gather to and then become the Holy Nation that God had intended from the very beginning as the FULFILLMENT of Holyday 3 (Pentecost) – the Spring Harvest (Kingdom of Priests – Rev 5:9-10) phase of His establishment of the Kingdom of God on earth.
These witnesses are commissioned in the book of Isaiah to do a very important job, namely, to personally see firsthand, and thereafter to testify to, the miraculous transformation of the desert wilderness into a garden oasis (Isa 55:13) – the event that confirms not only that there truly lives a Creator God in heaven, but also the truth of Holyday 1, and moreover, the truth of the Creator’s entire Seven Annual Holydays Plan being in effect and on schedule.
Now realize a VERY IMPORTANT ASPECT of this important WITNESS commission.
These people have to already be on-the-scene physically BEFORE this miracle occurs in order to become legitimate witnesses of this event.
Now, how are they going to know where to go so that they can be there BEFORE it happens?
Perhaps, like in the movie “Close Encounters of a Third Kind”, they will have some image planted into their minds to go to a certain place – perhaps a special mountain, following the TYPE set by the Israelites when they left Egypt to meet and join with God in a sacred marriage covenant at Mount Horeb on Pentecost.
Or, perhaps, there will be a “Good News” announcement from the Messenger mentioned in Isaiah 41:27.
Or, perhaps it will be the “call” from the David-like leader mentioned in Isaiah 55:5.
However it occurs, we know from the below Scriptures that these special witnesses are specifically commissioned and will be on the scene when Holyday 2 is fulfilled, enabling them to legitimately and convincingly testify as firsthand witnesses to it, and to wholeheartedly praise God for performing His Promise of Deliverance on His Second Annual Holyday – the next BIG EVENT to occur on this planet!
The Witnesses scriptures:
10 “You are My witnesses,” declares the LORD, “And My servant whom I have chosen, So that you may know and believe Me And understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, And there will be none after Me. 11 “I, even I, am the LORD, And there is no savior besides * Me. 12 “It is I who have declared and saved and proclaimed, And there was no strange god among you; So you are My witnesses,” declares the LORD, “And I am God. 13 “Even from eternity I am He, And there is none who can deliver out of My hand; I act and who can reverse it?”
1 “But now listen, O Jacob, My servant, And Israel, whom I have chosen:
2 Thus says the LORD who made you And formed you from the womb, who will help you, ‘Do not fear, O Jacob My servant; And you Jeshurun whom I have chosen.
3 ‘For I will pour out water on the thirsty land And streams on the dry ground; I will pour out My Spirit on your offspring And My blessing on your descendants;
4 And they will spring up among the grass Like poplars by streams of water.‘
5 “This one will say, ‘I am the LORD’S ‘; And that one will call on the name of Jacob; And another will write on his hand, ‘Belonging to the LORD,’ And will name Israel’s name with honor.
6 “Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: ‘I am the first and I am the last, And there is no God besides Me.
7 ‘Who is like Me? Let him proclaim and declare it; Yes, let him recount it to Me in order, From the time that I established the ancient nation. And let them declare to them the things that are coming And the events that are going to take place.
8 ‘Do not tremble and do not be afraid; Have I not long since announced it to you and declared it? And you are My witnesses. Is there any God besides * Me, Or is there any other Rock? I know of none.’ “
17 “The poor and needy search for water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst. But I the LORD will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them.
18 I will make rivers flow on barren heights, and springs within the valleys. I will turn the desert into pools of water, and the parched ground into springs.
19 I will put in the desert the cedar and the acacia, the myrtle and the olive. I will set junipers in the wasteland, the fir and the cypress together,
20 so that people may see and know, may consider and understand, that the hand of the LORD has done this, that the Holy One of Israel has created it.
3 A voice is calling, “Clear the way for the LORD in the wilderness; Make smooth in the desert a highway for our God.
9 Get yourself up on a high mountain, O Zion, bearer of good news, Lift up your voice mightily, O Jerusalem, bearer of good news; Lift it up, do not fear. Say to the cities of Judah, “Here is your God!“
11 Let the wilderness and its towns raise their voices; let the settlements where Kedar lives rejoice. Let the people of Sela [the rock] sing for joy; let them shout from the mountaintops.
18 “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.
19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
20 The wild animals honor me, the jackals and the owls, because I provide water in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen,
21 the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise.
