THE PROPHETICAL IMPORT OF
The Feasts of Israel
AS REVEALED IN THE APOCALYPSE
We make reference to the national feasts of Israel
elsewhere - link to 'the Lord's day' - 8 uplifting
Visions of Glory which give the future a reality
Here we present a simple comparison between the
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
FOR A SUGGESTED TIME-LINE SEE

the call to Atonement..at Sinai the redeemed
have been accepted at their consummation (cp below)

completely eradicated from the earth by the end of this 30 year period - ch. 18 & 19)
v27,28 - "on the tenth day a ch.18v8 - "Therefore shall her

out from among them,and be people, that ye be not partakers
ye separate, saith the Lord, of her sins, and that ye receive

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
- it is possible that "Armageddon" will take place in a Jewish Jubilee year, which becomes a jubilee to
the nation...this fits in perfectly with the final deliverance of many others, also in a Jewish Jubilee year

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

to perfection at the end of the Kingdom Age
