The Biblical Yearly Highlights
Throughout the biblical year different seasons are highlighted. When you look at every time the day and month are mention in the bible, and read what the verses that are associated with this time frame, a pattern begins to develop. We will look at these patterns.
We also see that there is a connection with this pattern and the language of the dew.
There is a connection with the month meaning in the language of the dew, and the seasons that are highlighted in the biblical year.
There is also a connection to the biblical seasons and when Jesus would do something or preach on a certain topic. They appear to all be related.
Let’s us look at some examples.
We will look first at the months and there meanings for the first twelve months.
2 Union, division, witnessing
3 Resurrection, signature of God, Divine completeness and perfection
4 World, creation
5 Grace of God, God’s goodness, Pentateuch (first five books of the bible)
6 Weakness of man
7 Completeness, Resurrection, Fathers perfection
8 New birth or beginning
9 Fruit of the Spirit, Divine completeness from the Father
10 Testimony, law, responsibility
11 Judgment, disorder
12 Governmental perfection (12 disciples, etc.)
Then lets look at the yearly Biblical overview. God’s time frame is from feast to feast.
The months of Passover to Pentecost.
First day of the month of Passover through Pentecost, the sixth day of the third month.
Through out the year, eleven different days were highlighted that the word of the Lord came. The first time was on 1/1, 1/7, and 3/1.
1/1 Receiving compensation for your labor for the Lord.
1/7 The Lord will defeat those who are strong against you.
3/1 You will be lifted up and they will be brought down.
1/1 is for cleaning the temple, (our temple) for the coming feasts. Passover, Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits. The Passover season includes angles, matrix (yearly goal) and the promise land.
Second month, a one day Passover for the person(s) not able to make the main Passover feast.
During the time between Firstfruits and Pentecost (The counting) has been the time when God’s people experience the greatest physical harm. This may be part of the reason why they did not marry during this season.
Side note: In the past if God’s chosen people did not marry during this season, I think that this would not be the season that Jesus would return for His bride.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that he may be able to stand against the wilds of the devil. Ephesians 6:10-11
From Pentecost to Tabernacles
On the sixth day of the third month is Pentecost, (3/6)
From Pentecost to the fall feasts we find the following.
Faith is the main theme during the 4th and 5th month. It was during this time that both temples were destroyed and the Golden calf happen during this time frame.
On 6/1 the word of the Lord came. Consider your ways!
It is forgiveness during the sixth month and up to the day before You Kippur, (7/9). During the sixth month is the time to make things right between us and others. During the seventh month up to You Kippur, to make thing right between us and God.
Between Tabernacles and the last day of the year, the main theme is major blessings to God’s people and the leaders of the nation’s are judged.
Judgments and Blessings.
During the seventh, eight, nineth, tenth, eleventh, and twelfth months of the Jewish calendar the word of the Lord came on seven different days. They are 7/21, 9/4, 9/24, 10/10, 10/12, 11/24, 12/1. One day the word of the Lord came twice, (9/24).
One time the word of the Lord came during the eighth month.
What was the word of the Lord that came during those seven days, and the eighth month?
In summary judgment on the nation’s, and blessing to his people.
Be strong. 1 time
Turn to the Lord. 1 time
Blessing His people. 2 times
Blessing those who bless Jerusalem. 2 times
Against the heathen kingdom. 1 time
Against unclean and insincerity 3 times
Against the king’s who were against His chosen people. 3 times
The life and teaching of Jesus during the biblical year.
In the gospels we can identify the time during the year as to the feasts that are mention to know what was going on and being said.
Passover to Pentecost
Cleaning the temple before Passover.
Matthew 21:12-17, Mark 11:15-19,. Luke 19:45-48,. John 2:13-22. Jesus is upset about the misuse of money before Passover.
Pentecost to Tabernacles.
In John 2 is a story about a wedding. Per tradition there were no marriages between Passover and Pentecost. Many wedding occured right after Pentecost.
In Matthew 3:13-17, Mark 1:9-11, Luke 3:21-22. We see that Jesus was baptized by John at Pentecost. Then in Matthew 4:1-11, Mark 1:12-13, and Luke 4:1-13. We read that 40 days after Pentecost Jesus was being tempted by Satan in the wilderness. It was during the 5th month His faith was being challenged.
Tabernacles to Passover.
In Mark 10:17-30, Mark 19:16-30, and Luke 18:18-30. The story of the rich man right before Passover. This is the time when God’s people are blessed and the leaders are judged. In general it is during this time you will have the largest amount of money of any time during the year.
In Mark 25:14-30, and Luke 19:11-27 is also about money. This was also right before Passover.
This is all very interesting, but how does it pertain to me? We see that there is a biblical pattern through out the year. If Jesus followed this pattern I would say that we may also try to follow the biblical pattern and know what season we are in.
During Passover and up to Pentecost make provisions to enter into your promise Land. It could be this year or what you have prepared now to be utilized at a future date when you enter into the promise Land that the Lord has provided for you.
From Pentecost to Tabernacles,
Knowing that our faith will come under attack during the 4th and 5th month.
During the 6th month is a good time to give and receive forgiveness.
From Tabernacles to Passover.
The time for us to have the largest amount of money is the winter and spring. This would all be a good time to invest what God has given to us wisely and not the way the money changers did in the temple.
