The Spring Feasts
The Prophetic fulfilling of the first coming of Our Savior was
at His Birth in Yosef's Sukkah on Tishri 15, as we follow the
Feasts of YHVH through the Good News of Yohanan (John).
The second coming of Messiah Yahoshua,
will also be on the
Feast of Sukkot - חג הסוכות Tishri 15 at a time in the future.

Prophetic Rehearsals

The Feasts of יהוה are Prophetic rehearsals that are shadow
pictures of our Messiah, His Ministry in detail both first and
second coming. The Spring Feasts are completed with
First Coming,
as the Fall Feasts will at His Second Coming.

Three of the four Spring Feasts are celebrated within eight
days; Pesach - פסח - Passover
which begins with the killing of
the lamb between the evenings on Aviv 14, the first Hebrew
month, and putting the lambs blood on the doorpost and lentil.

Hag HaMatzot - חג המצות - Feast of Unleavened Bread
begins that evening - the next day, Aviv 15. Eating of the
Passover begins the evening of the 14th then at sunset
begins the next day, Feast of Unleavened bread.

Yom HaBikkurim - יום הבכורים - Day of First Fruits begins the day following the Shabbat after Pesach-Passover and is considered Early First Fruits, these all fall within eight days from Aviv 14-21.

The Fourth Spring Feast is
Hag HaShavuot - חג השבועות (Hag Ha sha-voo-ote) and is identified in the Pre-Messianic Scriptures as Festival of Shavua - שבוע.  Feast of Sevens, and Feast of Harvest EX. 23:16

It is imperative to read from the Torah how these Feasts were
instituted by YHVH clearly for the benefit that we understand
the Ministry of our Messiah, and not follow after religions on men.

Concerning the beginning of Months for Yisra'el.
Shemot 12:2 (Exodus)
This is the beginning of months for you, it is the first month of the year for you.
V:14 And this day is to become a remembrance. And you shall observe it as a festival to יהוה throughout your generations -- observe it as a festival, an everlasting law.

The Spring Feasts were rehearsals of Messiah's First
Coming, and are in celebration today, completed.

Feast of Unleavened Bread חג המצות,
was declared a memorial to be kept forever.

Exodus 12:17.
And you shall guard חג המצות, for on this same day I brought your divisions out of the land of Mitsrayim. And you shall guard this day throughout your generations, an everlasting law.

Wayyiqra 23:5, (Leviticus-He Called)
In the first month, on the 14th day of the month, between the evenings, is פסח to יהוה. And on the 15th day of the month is חג המצות to יהוה seven days you are to eat unleavened bread.

פסח - Pesach - Passover and, Hag HaMatsot-חג המצות Feast Unleavened Bread of flow together; The Lamb was slain on the day of preparation the 14th, it was eaten that evening and into the first day of the Feast of unleavened Bread - א' חג המצותthe 15th of the Aviv-first month.

Shemot 12:17, Exodus
And you shall guard the Festival of Unleavened Bread, for on this same day I brought your divisions out of the land of Mitsrayim. And you shall guard this day throughout your generations, an everlasting law.

New Beginnings

Pesach (Passover) is a time of beginnings for Yisra'el, Exodus 12:2, This month is the beginning of months
for you, it is the first month of the year for you.

The Yisralites were instructed to take a lamb according to the house of his father, a lamb for a household, on the Tenth day of the month. It had to be a perfect one, a year old male, from the sheep or the goats. They were to keep it until the fourteenth of the same month and kill it between the evenings. The Blood of it was to be put upon the doorpost and on the lentil of the house in which they ate it. It was to be roasted and eaten with bitter herbs and Unleavened Bread, not raw, nor boiled at all with water, and any leftovers the next day were to be burned with fire. Although the Passover lamb was killed between the evenings before the Feast of Unleavened Bread, it was eaten at the close of the day and the beginning of 15th, the first day of unleavened bread א' חג המצות.

The Yisralites made their dough
before Exodus 12:34, And the people took their dough before it was leavened, having their kneading bowls bound up in their garments on their shoulders. V:39 And they baked מצהmatza (unleavened cakes of the dough) which they had brought out of Mitsrayim, for it was not leavened, since they were driven out of Mitsrayim, and they had not been able to delay, nor had they prepared food for themselves.

Exodus 12:11.
And this is how you are to eat it: your loins girded,
your sandals on your feet, and your staff in
your hand. And you shall eat it in haste.
It is the
פסח - Pesach of יהוה.

Our Passover Lamb is our Messiah, the WORD of יהוה.  We are to eat His Words with our loins girded, our shoes on our feet, and our staff in our hands. We are to take the Word of יהוה, as we are on our feet in haste, and live by every Word that comes out of His mouth forever. We are to have no leaven - nothing added to His Word. We are to accept what He says unselfishly with all that we are and all that He will make us, that we honor Him and worship Him in the manner prescribed at origin, TORAH - תורה and change not one precept. His Word is to be forever as frontlets to our eyes, written on our hearts and hands and minds. We are to touch not the unclean thing, and follow not after gods made by man. We are to Esteem Him in all that we do.

Plan of Redemption

This is YHVH's eternal redemption plan and cannot be over
emphasized. Although all other cycles are important to life it is
the Sacrifice of the Lamb that gives life its meaning. Had it not
been for the sacrifice of the lamb and the blood on the doorpost,
the promise to Avraham, Yitshaq, and Yisra'el would have been
void, no Torah given and no Celebrations to follow, no basis for
Messiah our Passover sacrificed on its anniversary, and we would
have been dead in our rebellion, without hope. Our Spiritual life
began on that day, and our celebrations thereafter commemorate
both the promise and the sacrifice that gave life to a sinful people. We can look back to this Feast as the very beginning of life for us, life in the Spirit 'by which we can only come and worship our Creator.
' But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father
in spirit and in truth, for the Father does seek such to Worship Him. יהוה is a Spirit, those who come to Him must come in Spirit and in Truth. John 4:23-24.

Within days Moshe (Moses) and the Yisraelites were at the Gulf
of Aqoba before them and the chariots of Pharaoh behind,

And Moshe said to the people, 'Do not be afraid. Stand still,
and see the deliverance of
יהוה which
He does for you today.
For the Mitsrites whom
you see today, you are never, never
to see again.
יהוה does fight for you and you keep still.'

The Red Sea Crossing was the Baptism of millions of His people.
Death faced them on every side. Soldiers behind, mountains of

water on both sides, with only one escape,
directly forward to
the other side. Life awaited them according to the plan of יהוה,
all it took was Faith to get there. Compare this to immersion in
Baptism, because to turn back they faced the enemy with swords, to stay meant certain death, coming out of the water was life, freedom, peace, and a long period of testing. On the 10th of the month we took the lamb, on the 14th we killed it and placing the
blood on our doorpost saved us, we ate it in haste at sunset and into the 15th which gave us the strength for the journey, we were immersed in the sea, and found life on the other side.

Compare Messiah's Ministry

Compare this Festival to the ministry of our Messiah. Mashiach Yahoshua - משיח יהושע had just raised El'azar from
the dead in Beyth Anyah (Bethany), which is north of Jerusalem
through the Damascus gate to the East about three kilometers,
15 furlongs, and on the way to Jerusalem gave instructions
for a colt to be brought to Him.

The Cohen Gadol (High Priest) had just exited the Damascus Gate
to the left to Beit Lechem (House of Bread) into the sheepfolds
of Beit Lechem (Bethlehem), to chose a spotless yearling male,
and was on his way back to the Temple Mount from which this
trip began every year on the Tenth just before Passover.

He would bring the lamb back to the Temple and tie it to one of
the pillars to be left for three days for all to examine, that no
spot or imperfection be found, that it be worthy for sacrifice in
the Temple Service of Passover.
The City and surrounding area
would have been filled past capacity for this event, filling the
streets and shops and every space available. They were waiting
for the High Priest to walk through the Damascus Gate back into
the City, down the Tyropoeon Valley, up the steps to the
Temple Mount, to tie the Lamb, for examination.

Yahshua יהושע riding on the colt, the symbol of
a Conquering King, with His Taught Ones coming
from the opposite direction entered through the
gate first and the shouting began by His Disciples,

Baruch HaBa B'Shem YHVH < ברוך הבא בשם יהוה <
(Blessed is He Who comes in the Name of YHVH). Psalm 118.
    ברוך הבא בשם יהוה < Baruch HaBa B'Shem YHVH  

is what His taught ones would have been
shouting, and the entire City of perhaps
half a million followed in shouting.

Remember, The Name יהוה was forbidden to be spoken by the
religious leaders, they honored the pagan Ineffable Name doctrine.
The religious leaders then began to say to יהושע, something like,

'Can't you hear what they are saying, tell them to stop,' but
I say unto you, if these should be silent, the
rocks would cry out.
Luke 19:40. And the rocks are today crying
out with every archaeological dig. Carved in stone are His Name
and His Words by the prophets of old. Most who think they are
believers continue in that same pagan doctrine; They have lost
The Key Of Wisdom. So the rocks continue to cry out as one of
the few witnesses today, preserved for us that we be reminded.
The True Wonderful Light from Above, השמ יהוה, The Beginning
Of Wisdom, Must come from the Rocks Crying Out because
there are not enough believers that Love The Truth, and
Reverence His Name, in the lawlessness of this generation.

The City would have sounded like a Hurricane, with everyone crying out Peace in Heaven and esteem in the highest. Waving their palms and shouting all pandemonium would be breaking out as this was the beginning moment they had come for, to celebrate the Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread as commanded in the TORAH - תורה.

Yahoshua would have road down that valley and gone up to the
Temple, which is recorded in the Good News Gospels, He would
be examined by all, as He taught for the next three days.

This happened on the Tenth of Aviv (Nissan) and in the evening of
day Thirteenth, after three days of being examined, the Last
Supper would be taking place, and that was the beginning of the
day of preparation. That was also the day He passed the

Cup of Betrothal
to His taught ones in the upper room, and renewed the Covenant. This was not a Passover Seder,
because it
was the beginning of the day of preparation;
the Passover Meal was to be the following night
after the killing of the Lamb.
John 19:14, And it was the Preparation
of the Passover, and about the sixth hour.
Luke 23:54
And it was the preparation day,
and the Sabbath was approaching.

Make a note at this time, that on the 10th He walked down
the Tyropean valley directly to the Temple Mount to be examined
for three days just like all the Passover lambs were for many
Centuries. On Days 11, 12, 13, He was examined that no spot or
wrinkle be found, and on the 14th day of AVIV, He was murdered without remorse the same day the Passover Lamb was slain at the First Passover and celebrated every Passover since. He went into
the Grave At the close of the 14th day, the grave held Him for days 15, 16, and 17, and at the close of day 17 He arose again unto New Life to secure the Promise of our Resurrection, and His Promised Return. Count those seven days. They will make sense soon in this study.

He Walked As We Walk
In the garden, commonly called the passion, great drops of blood in the form of sweat, trickled down His face. The pressure must have been great, for He knew what was to come, but the pressure for Him was that His very Throne was at stake. He had put all on the line for us, and the moment was fast approaching. Scripture tells us that He was tested in all ways like us, but for one major difference. He had to have enough Faith that when He entered the grave, He would be able to resurrect Himself, for He said, No man takes My life, I have the power to give it and the power to take it back, and now came
the test of His Faith. He asked the Father if this cup could pass
from Him but in obedience to His Father, continued in the Fathers will. We all know what happened between then and Pilot washing his hands of the matter.

Our High Priest

Yahoshua was taken before Qayapha (Caiaphas) who put Him to
the oath.
יהושע was standing before the high priest who said to
'I put you to the oath, by the Living Elohim that You say
to us if you are the
Messiah, the Son of Elohim.'
Matt26:63, Luke 22:70, Mark 14:63.

This oath was by the High Priest, and to not answer would mean
the throne, so Yahoshua confirmed by the words, You have said it.
When the high priest tore his garments an amazing thing happened. Imagine you were to tear your clothing in haste and anger, where would be
the easiest place to tear it? The collar of the priest was reinforced that his collar not be torn by accident, for tearing of his collar would do the same as יהושע not answering the oath. The high priest would lose his office and there would be no high priest for the Passover service. That is what happened and the only qualified High Priest left for the True Temple Service was יהושע.

Could that have happened at a more appropriate time? Scripture
is full of Works of יהוה that happen at split second timing.

Pilate examined Yahoshua just after Qayapha, and said I find no
fault in Him.
This is exactly what the high priest would have said
after the lamb in the Temple was found without fault, and it
was said by Pilate exactly at the right moment.


You see the Temple service continued without interruption
right through His Last Words, "IT IS FINISHED." And
there were none anywhere that could stop it. The last
meaningful Temple service was performed by our Messiah
perfectly, and By His strips we were healed.

Although we have not covered all of the aspects of the
Prophetic Pesach - פסח (Passover) service instituted in the
TORAH - תורה, We continue in our study and
take each Feast
in the order that they appear in the Good News of John.

According to John, who was The Taught One that יהושע Loved,
the first Feast that He attended just after the beginning of His
Ministry was the Passover in John 2:13. This is when He drove
out the merchants and the money changers. There is no mention
here of Sukkot - Tabernacles, so it is determined that His
ministry would have started after, since the
Feast of Sukkot
was a Feast required by Torah for attendance,
and to have
missed this would have been a violation of the Torah, but we
know that Yahoshua followed Torah, so His Ministry had to
begin at just after Sukkot.

Yosef, Miriam, and Yahoshua, as reported in Luke 2:41-52
went up to Jerusalem for the Passover as they had every
year, but this was not during the Ministry of Messiah,
was then just twelve years of age, doing His
Fathers business, but not as Messiah.

We know that Yahoshua kept the Feast of Unleavened bread
after the Passover of John 2:13, for in V:23 we read that
He was at the Festival and many believed in His Name when they saw the signs which He was doing, and we know that the Two Feasts run together.

There is no way that a comprehensive study
can be done here, but there are books written
for that purpose. What we are here doing is an
overview and perhaps to bring up a few things
that are not well known among the Brethren.
