****** UPDATE ADDED 10-3-17 (scroll to bottom) ******

Sorry, making lemonade popped into my head ( he he he 😉 ). So, here are some very interesting dreams a few of the watchmen have had. I know Barry Scarbrough thought he was dreaming of lemons when he had his dream back in January of this year but come to find out he was having a dream of etrogs which are a citrus fruit used during the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot). I seriously think the Holy Spirit has been trying to talk to us all for those with ears to hear rapture or no rapture in the coming weeks. I still feel like it is going to happen this year though but, we shall see. Here are a couple of good videos below. I love Barry’s videos and watch his new ones when they pop up. Keaton is a riot…Amen Brother! Ha ha ….A phrase that gets much use around here now. He talks of his “weird dream” of lemons on a stick and then talks about another watchmen who had a dream of this citrus fruit as well. More Tabernacle wonderings.

The mitzvah of waving the four species derives from the Torah. In Leviticus, it states:

Leviticus 23:40 ~ And you shall take on the first day the fruit of splendid trees, branches of palm trees and boughs of leafy trees and willows of the brook, and you shall rejoice before the LORD your God for seven days.

In Leviticus 23:40 the Hebrew terms for the four plants are:
‘êṣ hāḏār (עֵץ הָדָר), magnificent/beautiful trees
təmārîm (תְּמָרִים), palm trees
‘êṣ ‘āḇōṯ (עֵץ־עָבֹת), thick/leafy trees
‘arḇê-nāḥal (עַרְבֵי נַחַל), willows of the brook/valley

In Talmudic tradition, the four plants are identified as:
etrog (אתרוג) – the fruit of a citron tree
lulav (לולב) – a ripe, green, closed frond from a date palm tree
hadass (הדס) – boughs with leaves from the myrtle tree
aravah (ערבה) – branches with leaves from the willow tree

Part10: Tabernacles & Clouds of Glory: Revelation 12 Berean Study

 

Paul from Revelationchapter12.com shared this today on his Facebook news feed and I find it intriguing now that I have learned the correct way the Menorah is to be lit:

I don’t believe the rapture is dependent on agriculture or that the sign of God, which was planned from the beginning of creation, would be a precursor to an ambiguous delay in a crop cycle. People are desperately trying to hang on to a Rosh Hashana rapture because they believe dogmatically that is the next feast to be fulfilled. It very well may not be.

Num 8:2 Speak unto Aaron, and say unto him, When thou lightest the lamps, the seven lamps shall give light over against the candlestick.

This doesn’t render well in the KJV but in Hebrew writings is it more clear. It looks like the Menorah was lit from the most outward candelabrum inwards, towards the central shaft.

דַּבֵּר֙ אֶֽל־אַהֲרֹ֔ן וְאָמַרְתָּ֖ אֵלָ֑יו בְּהַעֲלֹֽתְךָ֙ אֶת־הַנֵּרֹ֔ת אֶל־מוּל֙ פְּנֵ֣י הַמְּנוֹרָ֔ה יָאִ֖ירוּ שִׁבְעַ֥ת הַנֵּרֽוֹת׃
Num 8:2 Speak to Aaron and say to him: When you kindle the lamps (of the menorah), towards the face [the central shaft] of the menorah shall the seven lamps light [i.e., shall their light (by manipulation of the wicks) be directed (so that people not say that He needs the menorah for its light)].

Chizkuni, Numbers 8:2:3
יאירו שבעת הנרות, “the seven lamps shall provide illumination. This would refer to the six lamps, three on either side of the center shaft of the candlestick. According to our author this would be the correct text in Rashi, but the scribes of Rashi’s manuscripts have omitted a word by mistake, i.e. the word האמצעי, “the centre shaft” (the lamp on it)

Rabbeinu Bahya, Bamidbar 8:2:5-8
אל מול פני המנורה יאירו שבעת הנרות, “toward the center of the Menorah its seven lamps shall shine.” If you will examine the text closely you will note that the Torah should have written יאירו ששת הנרות, “the six lamps shall shine,”

Consider this: How does Israel come to true repentance (Yom Kippur with the scapegoat in the wilderness i.e. Mid Tribulation) until we (the Church / mankind) are tabernacling with the Lord (Tabernacles)? Rosh Hashanah is the coronation of the King and a New Year (New Millennium?), which doesn’t happen until Yeshua is King of Israel.

If we take the Church out of the Feasts and put Israel in as centre, then we see that perhaps Tabernacles should come first, then Yom Kippur in Tribulation, then the coronation of the King Rosh Hashanah and then the Millennial Kingdom reign.

This possibly means Sukkot is next feast to be fulfilled. If this is so, should we be surprised? God always catches man by surprise. We should also remember that while the Feasts are of paramount importance to understanding God’s plan of redemption, they are not necessarily the plan for the Church, but rather for Israel.

We are already fulfilled in Christ. The Church’s heavenly Menorah is totally lit up and burning in Rev 4. The Holy Spirit was given on Pentecost but the center of the candelabrum on the Menorah may not be lit as far as Israel is concerned and could instead represent when the OT saints and all of Israel are restored, then they will receive the Holy Spirit in the resurrection. This center candle then represents the Millennial Kingdom, the Messiahs Shabbat and the final 1000 year reign with Christ on earth with Israel as the centerpiece. This seems to make more sense if the Menorah is lit from the outside inwards.I don’t believe the rapture is dependent on agriculture or that the sign of God, which was planned from the beginning of creation, would be a precursor to an ambiguous delay in a crop cycle.

Here are two other interesting things to read as well:

* The Last Trump is Blown on Shmini Atzeret ?
* The Last Day of SUKKOT

 

BONUS (only 6 and a half mins long):

 

The Torah points to Jesus just as lighting the Menorah points to the center light which points to Jesus.

 

**** THE 10/3 UPDATE ****

Paul nutshells the above in this 3 minute video and adds an AWESOME Blood moons chart towards the end of it. You can go directly to his YouTube link to grab the screen shot for a larger image of his blood moon chart. Very time sensitive if this observation is accurate!!!
