                THE 7 BIBLICAL FEASTS OF LEVITICUS 23

 

1. Passover - Pecach (1 day feast) - Symbolic for Christ’s death!

2. Unleavened Bread - Matstsah (7 day feast) - Pictures Christ’s burial.

3. Firstfruits - Reshiyth (1 day) - Symbolic for Christ’s resurrection!

4. Pentecost - Shavuot (1 day) - Symbolic for the empowerment of the Church & for the Church Age!

5. Trumpets - Rosh Hashana (2 days) - A picture of the Rapture.

6. Day of Atonement - Yom Kippur (1 day) - Pictures the Great Tribulation.

7. Tabernacles - Sukkot (8 day feast) - Symbolic for the Millennial reign of Christ!

 

* NOTE: Rosh Hashana (see 5 above) is the Feast of Trumpets.  Every 7th year on Trumpets is the “release” day when all debts are forgiven (Deut. 15:1-12).  It is called in Hebrew the shemitah.”  The last two greatest one day Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) point losses fell on the Biblical shemitah. Those days were 09/17/2001 and 09/29/2008. Recent top point loss days fell during Shemitah years (1987, 2001 and 2008).

 

* NOTE: 08/03/1932, 08/04/2011, 08/08/2011, 08/09/2011 occurred during the nine days of mourning and fasting from the 1st to the 9th of the Jewish month Av.  This period commemorates the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple in 586 BC by Babylon and again in 70 AD by Rome.  Other horrific events have also befallen the Jews during this period.

 

* NOTE: As of this writing (July 20, 2015) the 3 greatest one day DJIA point losses fell on Biblical feast days and 2 of them were on the 7th year shemitah.  Six of the 20 top point loss days fell on Biblical feast or fast days, and 10 others fell during shemitah years.

 

* NOTE:  Shemitah years since 1895 - 1896:

 

             1895 - 1896              1958 - 1959

             1902 - 1903              1965 - 1966

             1909 - 1910              1972 - 1973

             1916 - 1917              1979 - 1980

             1923 - 1924              1986 - 1987

             1930 - 1931              1993 - 1994

             1937 - 1938              2000 - 2001

             1944 - 1945              2007 - 2008

             1951 - 1952              2014 - 2015
