TABERNACLES PENTECOST REVISITED
In the writing, Hurricane Katrina and the Curse of 1920, page 4, we revealed for the first time since the beginning of mankind that a Pentecost needs to be added to Tabernacles. You can read that writing for further understanding; however, only recently (July, 2015) was it seen that while a Pentecost must indeed be added to Tabernacles, the pattern is more likely different from what we have thought up to now.
In that writing, we noted that the spring feasts of Passover and Pentecost are a one-and-seven, followed by a ninth. That would be one day of Passover, immediately followed by seven days of Unleavened Bread, and fifty days later would be Pentecost. So, what we see here is a 1—7—1 pattern: one day of Passover, seven days of Unleavened Bread, and then one day of Pentecost.
But concerning Tabernacles in the fall feasts, we noted that it is a 7—1 pattern: seven days of Tabernacles, immediately followed by the Great Eighth Day. What was missing here in relation to the Passover/Pentecost pattern? Of course a Pentecost. In that writing, we equated the Passover 1—7—1 pattern as a spirit (1), soul (7), and body (1). And we noted that Tabernacles was a flipped 7 and 1 (soul and spirit) and was lacking a body, or Pentecost.
To correct or complete this, we added a Pentecost to Tabernacles, thereby making it a 7—1—1 pattern. On December 25-26, 2005, we gathered together for a first-ever Tabernacles Pentecost, in much hope that it would afford us the latter rain. However, with painful disappointment such we did not receive. Then on December 26, 2008, again we met with this hope, but again no latter rain.
So, here we are in 2015, and once again our attention has been drawn to this vital addition and fulfillment of a Tabernacles Pentecost. But today, something different is now seen. First though, let us provide a summary. Passover was fulfilled when Yahshua went to the cross and died as the Passover lamb. Then came Pentecost fifty days after that feast, providing the former rain of the Spirit (Acts 2). The other feast is Tabernacles, immediately preceded by Trumpets and Atonement. The latter of these two, Atonement, was fulfilled by Yahshua when He was baptized by John the Baptist on the Day of Atonement. (Click here for more on this.)
So, if all of these kingdom related events took place precisely on a feast, is it not incumbent that the remaining kingdom events fall on feasts as well? Obviously so. Trumpets will undoubtedly afford the Remnant to ascend alive as set forth in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, and Yahshua will then return and tabernacle with man, fulfilling Tabernacles. And most importantly, these feast-related and like-timed events all demand that the latter rain also occur on a feast day. Passover Pentecost afforded the former rain, and quite obviously and even essentially, the latter rain must come on a Pentecost as well. And, there is only one way that can happen: It must be tied to Tabernacles.
Let’s see the Scripture’s hint of this. In Acts 10, a hungry Peter had a vision wherein three times a sheet was lowered from heaven with all manner of unclean animals—obviously the three thousand years of unclean Christianity (which is cut short to two thousand). Immediately after that vision, Peter accompanied three men who took him to the house of Cornelius. There the Holy Spirit fell upon them. When Peter returned to Jerusalem, his description of this event was, “And as I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell upon them just as He did upon us at the beginning” (Acts 11:15).
Here is our hint. The latter rain will indeed be the Holy Spirit falling upon us “as at the beginning,” that being the former rain. So what does this event at Cornelius’s household tell us? The name Cornelius means “horn.” This could be a horn on an animal, or a horn like a trumpet—and the month of Tabernacles begins with Trumpets. Thus, this testimony of the Spirit being poured out at Cornelius’s house “as at the beginning,” albeit obscure, evidences the Spirit being poured out in the latter rain on a Tabernacles Pentecost. Here again, it cannot be a spring-feast Passover Pentecost (with two loaves, or 2,000 years, of leavened bread), but it must be a fall-feast Tabernacles Pentecost. Let us now examine this more closely.
When this man first saw in 2005 the necessity of adding a Pentecost to Tabernacles, included was the fact that God effected mirror images where left is right, and right is left. We read in a literal translation of 1 Corinthians 13:12: “For now we see in a mirror riddle.” This is precisely what we are seeing, even more clearly evidenced now. This riddle is that these two feasts are mirror images of each other. Therefore, they cannot be 1—7—1 and 7—1—1 as we first thought, but have to be 1—7—1 and 1—7—1, in reversed order. To state this more distinctly, Passover’s 1—7—1 is spirit—soul—body, while Tabernacles’s 1—7—1 is the mirror image body—soul—spirit. In Hurricane Katrina and the Curse of 1920, page 4, we stated that the spirit and the soul had to be flipped, and so they are. Again, in a mirror the left hand is now the right, and the right is now the left. But what we then did not see clearly was that the body had to be flipped as well so that it came before Tabernacles.
It is interesting that even in that writing we noted: “Per this [Tabernacles body], Kyle shared with me that when Yahweh created man, He first created him as a body, without soul and spirit. “ And this is what we see now. The body is first, followed by the flipped soul and spirit. Thus, Pentecost is first, followed by Tabernacles and the Great Eighth Day. So we see:
Passover—Unleavened Bread— Pentecost
Pentecost—Tabernacles—Great Eighth Day
Another testimony to the validity of this order is the fact that Passover begins on the fourteenth day of the month, and Tabernacles begins on the fifteenth day. Why is this noteworthy? As mirror images, they should have started on the same day of the month—the fourteenth. But, with Tabernacles beginning on the fifteenth, it actually tells us that something occupies that vacant place, and that is: there is a Pentecost that has to be added to Tabernacles. By adding it, and with the true flip, this makes the spring and fall feast periods true and complete mirror images.
The other thing to consider here is that the two Remnant works are separated by the breach of Christianity. So what we see is that there were the fulfillments of Passover and Unleavened Bread, followed by the Passover Pentecost—then came the breach of Christianity—and this concludes with the Tabernacles Pentecost, followed by Tabernacles and the Great Eighth Day. Do you see this? With the true mirror images, the First Remnant is identified with a closure of Pentecost, and the second Remnant is identified with a beginning of Pentecost. The two Remnants are in fact one (the Bride), and are united in the former and latter rains. So to lay this out visually, we see:
Passover, Unleavened Bread, Pentecost—Christianity—Pentecost, Tabernacles, Great Eighth Day
Now, knowing all of this, we have to ask the question: How, or when, would this find fulfillment today? In other words, how does it calculate out in the Hebrew and the New Millennial calendars? First, at the time of this writing in August, 2015, the Hebrew calendar has Tabernacles set for September 28 (beginning at sunset on the 27th). So, counting fifty preceding days, where would that place a Tabernacles Pentecost? That would be August 8-9. Well, we now know that Christianity, with its reference to the Hebrew calendar, did not receive a Tabernacles Pentecost. And the reality is, that could never happen! They did not experience the Pentecost former rain, and the Pentecost latter rain they will never experience either. (And their Latter Rain Movement beginning in 1948 has been a prophets-of-Baal failure.) Remember, the two Remnant olive tree works set forth in Zechariah 4 are specifically and solely identified as literally—the “two sons of fresh oil” (vs. 14). It is these two olive tree Remnant works that receive the former and latter rains—the first Remnant and the second Remnant. Christianity’s lampstand is not a son of fresh oil.
Will the Bride now receive the latter rain? Yahweh God alone knows. What could happen? At this point (August, 2015), all that is known is what you have read here. But the hope is that we in fact SEE this possibility. That is good. But the remainder of the story is certainly to be seen. We wait upon Yahweh, and we watch. And by His grace, hopefully He will now complete what He has begun and fulfill the second son of fresh oil, providing us the entirely essential latter rain.
So, what does the New Millennial Calendar have for this year’s Tabernacles? As shown in the online calendar, Tabernacles, 2015, begins on November 12. Therefore, counting fifty preceding days, a Tabernacles Pentecost falls on September 23. So, it is yet before us at this writing.
And speaking of 23, let us add one final relevant analysis. Not long ago, I suddenly saw something I had not seen before. I realized that from my birth in 1948 to the major life-changing transformation in my life in 1971 when I began my walk with Yahshua, was twenty-three years. And then, another twenty-three years later, in June, 1994, the Holy Spirit came upon me and miraculously began revealing Bride truth, again bringing a dramatic change in my life. In 1971 I began my walk as a Christian, and in 1994 I began a new life in the Bride.
With these two twenty-threes, I wondered where a third twenty-three years would take me. That would bring me to 2017. Three equal periods of time are not uncommon with Yahweh God. Moses, the predecessor to the Elijah, lived three distinct periods of forty years each, for a total of one hundred and twenty years—forty years in Egypt, forty years as a shepherd, and forty years leading the sons of Israel to the promised land. Also, King Saul reigned forty years, followed by David reigning forty years, and concluded with Solomon reigning forty years.
Furthermore, the number twenty-three in the Scriptures seems to bear little prophetic testimony, other than when raised to the heavenly kingdom thousands level, or 2,300. In Daniel 8:13-14 we read: “Then I heard a holy one speaking, and another holy one said to that particular one who was speaking, ‘How long will the vision about the regular sacrifice apply, while the transgression causes horror, so as to allow both the holy place and the host to be trampled?’ He said to me, ‘For 2,300 evenings and mornings; then the holy place will be properly restored.’ “ This is precisely our hope: that the transgression that has caused horror in the church for 2,000 years will come to an end, allowing the holy place and host—Christianity—to be properly restored with Yahshua reigning on this earth with His Bride. So here the number 23 is exceptionally relevant to our hope today, including September 23.
The fact is, with the completion of each of the two twenty-three-year periods in my life, I experienced dramatic life-changing transformations. And if the remaining days before us, with the culmination in 2017, are the product of the latter rain beginning on September 23, 2015, then 2017 will indeed be the greatest life-changing fulfillment possible, even for all mankind! It would be ascending alive into heaven to have our bodies transformed into the heavenly, and return to this earth to rule and reign with Immanuel for a thousand years. And coincidentally, three twenty-threes is sixty-nine, the year I was married.
If Yahweh gives us the latter rain this year (2015), again, that outpouring would be for two years—the remaining part of the covenant with the many—which would bring us from Tabernacles Pentecost, 2015, to Trumpets, 2017. And of course, this is to be seen. But if it does occur, we were shown it in advance, and will know exactly what is happening, what is before us, and where this should lead us. It will begin the transformation of the church and the world. Yahweh will complete what He began 2,000 years ago, and prepare the people and the way for His Son’s return and reign. Amen.
For twenty-one years I have diligently sought the latter rain, seeking how to untie the donkey. Now, the September 23, 2015, Tabernacles Pentecost will come, and we will see what will happen.
