         The Feasts of Israel

        Old Testament record  of these feasts  and the New

        Testament record of their prophetical fulfilment….

        the apocalyptic visions above  provide a   connected

        discourse bridging   the time between Sinai and Zion

                                    the scene at Sinai prefigures the call to the nations below..                                                                   

                                                the call to Atonement..at Sinai the redeemed

                      "Babylon the great is fallen..in one hour is thy judgment come"-  ch.18v2,10

                    "one hour" - 1/12th Jewish day represents 1/12th "time"- link to 'Bible'- page 2

                       (the city of Rome will be destroyed first, and the whole system of iniquity is

                  completely eradicated from the earth by the end of this 30 year period - ch. 18 & 19)

 day of  atonement for you be-          plagues come in one day"

 fore the LORD your God"

 v27 -  "an  offering  made  by            ch.18v8 -"and she shall be utt-

                                       THE JUBILEE

 

 ch.25v9 -"the  trumpet of the         Romans 8v21 - "delivered from

 2 Corinthians 6v17 - "come             ch.18v4 -  "Come out of her, my

 out from among them,and   be           people, that ye be not partakers

 ye separate,     saith the Lord,          of her sins,  and that  ye receive

 and touch not the unclean               not of her plagues"

 thing; and I will receive you"                                  

  the redeemed at Sinai have already obeyed the call to separation during their time of probation (today)

  - brought "out of every nation" (see above) - the call here ch.18v4 is to the earth's inhabitants to leave

  "Babylon the great" ch.18v2 which will have been totally destroyed by the end of 30 years - ch.18,19

  & the jubilee of the redeemed at Sinai prefigures the jubilee for those who heed the call to leave Rome

 v40 "branches of palm trees"          "palms in their hands"

                                                   the scene at Sinai prefigures the scene below                                                                                               

                                                         "of all nations" compare "all nations"                                                       

 Zechariah 14v16 -  "everyone         ch.15v4 - "all nations shall come

 that is  left of  all  the  nations          and worship before thee"

 ..shall even go up.. to worship

 the King,  the LORD of hosts,
