Tour Israel this Sukkot

We want you to know about the tour of Israel we have planned this year.

Please take a moment and read the itinerary at this link.

We are going to start in Jerusalem and then go over to Jericho. My first time there was last year. You can read the comments of those who came with me for sukkot 2016 at this link.

Then we are going to keep the Holy Day of Sukkot for either Hebrew calendar or the Karaite one. During this time we will try to get up on the Temple Mount. And we will share with you what history teaches about the Temple and the city of David. Most people are stunned to learn these things and when you see them you cannot deny it.

We will meet many others on the Sabbath from around the world just like you.

Then Sunday, October 8th Jordan
Begin our day with a drive to Jordan where we will be crossing the border at the Allenby crossing. Our first visit will be
to Mt Nevo, where we will witness the place Moses stood to see the Land of Israel and the place of his burial. We will
visit the plains of Moav and Jericho where Israelites crossed the Jordan river. From there we will travel further north to
the Yabok River where Jacob and possibly Abraham crossed into Israel and where Prof. Adam Zertal believes the
Israelites crossed into Israel. Cross back into Israel into Israel via the Allenby crossing in the evening.

– Monday, October 9th Footprints in Israel
Today we will visit the Footprints on Israel’s side of the Jordan river; Argaman, Yafit and Rimonim. Yafit and Argaman
are in same vicinity – the valley of Jordan -and Rimonim, the most recent Footprint to be discovered in 2013, is in the
hills of Samaria. We will learn and understand the details and significance of the Gilgals. We will view the stones and
formations of the footprints and in real time appreciate the important roles they played in the Israelites entry to Israel and
consequent camping and capturing.

Day 8 – Tuesday, October 10th
Samaria
After breakfast, we will head to Mt. Ebal to visit the footprint that has been discovered there. In the bible we find Moses
giving Joshua clear instructions on what the nation is to do upon entering the land that had been promised to them.
These instructions included the making of an altar and the reciting of the blessings and the curses, at this very specific
location; Mount Ebal. We will then continue to the northern slopes of the mountain and walk by foot to the site of Joshua’s
Altar. From there we will go to visit the ancient city of Sebastia, what was the capital of Israelite kingdom and where
Elijah sat and prophesied.

Wednesday, October 11th
Jerusalem
On this day we will see the last footprint on the list in Jerusalem; visiting both the ‘heel’ of the footprint around the City
of David and the ‘top of the foot’ around the Temple Mount. In the City of David, we will visit important archaeological
sites and the last standing remnant of the ancient Jewish Temple; the Western (Wailing) Wall.
Following this, we will go to the Jewish Quarter and discover more about life there since the Temple times.

Thursday, October 12th
Shemini Atzeret / Simchat Torah
Together we will celebrate Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah – the completion of the cycle of reading the Torah. The
city will be filled with sounds of song and joy.
Join the Jerusalemites as they rejoice, dance and sing and begin reading the Book from the beginning again.

We hope to be able to attend a local synagogue where you can actually take part in the Simchat Torah celebration. I know that in the past those who have done this part of the tour alone have had their whole lives changed just by this experience alone.

 

We are not doing this tour in conjunction with HaYovel Ministries but we do share this video they have put out.

If you cannot join me in Israel this Sukkot then I do hope you will go there with someone. HaYovel is one I can recommend.

Introducing Torah Sisters

One of the things that Sightedmoon has always lacked in has been the female side of this walk. We have focused our work on understanding Torah calendar issues and end time prophecy in relationship to the Sabbatical and Jubilee years cycles.

But there have been some women who do homeschooling and are in need of support to help teach the young ones. As you know I have very little help here and no time to do the things I am currently doing. Although we have been asked a few times to come and teach in various countries, we do not have the support to be able to do such things.

A few weeks ago I found this site called Torah Sisters. And I found that some of those who are contributing to this site are known to me and also keep the Crescent moon calendar. Anne Elliot and Amy Guenther and there may be more that I have not read about. But these two already like what I teach about the Sabbatical Years. Anne has also written a great review at Amazon about our work. She along with her husband hosted and maintained the website for Set Apart People.

I want to share this website with you all. Women can find support for homeschooling and for women’s issues. There are ideas on what to teach the kids with cutouts and other tools some of which are free to download. There is even a calendar there using the crescent moon dates for the Holy Days.

As you all know I do not use this site to promote others. Sightedmoon.com is here to help you grow as a member of the body. The only other sites I know that I promote regularly are Nehemiah’s Wall, Karaite Korner, and The Trumpet Magazine. I am now pleased to share this other site, Torah Sisters, with you to help cover an area that I am just not able to cover in our work.

May Yehovah bless you and guide you.

Podcasts

Each week James and I are trying to put out one or two or even three podcasts. We began doing this in February 2017. Many of you say you want to help but that you cannot donate. That is fine. It is not always about the money. But you can help.

Would you make it your goal to each week share two of our teachings with 10 new people? Find one that appeals to you and to them and share it.

You can post them in WhatsApp or you can write favourable comments in iTunes or tunein and on twitter or other podcast sites where our podcasts can be found. You can also share them on Facebook or other social media sites.

By clicking on the sightedmoon podcast site in the column to the right you can then read a short write up in each podcast and have something to copy and paste when you share the podcast with others. they can then listen to them on their iPhones while doing chores around the house or driving to or from work. They are not heavy in scriptures but they explain various aspects of the scriptures to you in about 1/2 hour program. Yes, I do go over time a few times. Okay, much of the time.

Please do help us to spread the word. Share these things and make it your job to do so. You can also add the News Letters to this for more details that are not covered in the podcasts. And thank you to everyone who is already doing this.

Many of you have learned about the Sabbatical Years and the Holy Days and Sabbaths because someone paid it forward to you. Now you can pay it forward to those who have not yet heard.

Thank you for helping us to reach the rest that have not yet heard these truths around the world.

And do not forget we have the book Remembering the Sabbatical Year of 2016 in French and Portuguese and now being translated into Dutch. Send these to those you know who speak these languages.

I also want to share this email with you all. This is from a man who has been having a struggle but found our website and wanted to help us and did. He is now using the podcasts to learn from and share with others.

Hello Mr. Dumond

I just wanted to commend you on your new app. I have been using it a lot and it has been a great blessing as I have learning disabilities that make it hard for me to be able to comprehend some reading material. I’ve learned over the years how to get through enough to understand what i reading but being able to listen is a far better way to learn for me. i am very happy to be able to use the new app.

Another thing I wanted to mention is that I recently had my bank accounts swindled by an addict I was helping so they are no longer any use to me as somehow they got into all my banking and such. So although I said I would send ya at least 50 a month I am unable to send ya anything for a little while. It’s not that I no longer support you and your work. It is just that I am going through monster trials at moment with my finances..

It crazy what is happening around the globe. A collapse could happen any time really now. I been watching the European Union with awe as they are really lining up how the countries will end up splitting into the 10 nation powerhouse that Prophesy gives will go up against King of south.

I do apologize for not having anything to help this month. Although you have my prayers and I will once I get this all sorted be sending tithes into you God willing that is.

Hope you are well sir.

name with held.

We can use the donations, which we spend on advertising and to support our work in Africa and Asia and to pay the costs of hosting these sites, but we do not do this for donations to get rich. I also work a full-time job to pay my own bills. So no, I do not do this for the money. We do this to get out this message. We do this so that you have another tool to use to help get out this message. To share with those in need of help. Our video teachings have reached 1.2 million viewers around the world since 2013. Our News Letter has reached 7 million since 2006. We just started the podcast in February. You can see the stats at the bottom of each newsletter up to Aviv 1 2017.

We have a lot of work to get done in a short period of time. Yes, North America and the UK have but 3 1/2 years. The rest of the world has between 7 and 16 years depending on where they are. The easiest time to do this work is right now. It will get harder and harder to do with each passing year. Many write who want to save their families or themselves, but few there are who are actually working at sharing this information. Fewer still who are still doing this work after a few months or after a year or two. See teh parable below.

The top ten USA States listening to the podcast are listed below.

California 233

You can change the stats above by sharing with more people in your state or in your country. The question is, will you?

Let me share with you Matthew 13 from the NLT. It is describing each one of you today.

Parable of the Farmer Scattering Seed

13 Later that same day Jesus left the house and sat beside the lake. A large crowd soon gathered around him, so he got into a boat. Then he sat there and taught as the people stood on the shore. He told many stories in the form of parables, such as this one:

“Listen! A farmer went out to plant some seeds. As he scattered them across his field, some seeds fell on a footpath, and the birds came and ate them. Other seeds fell on shallow soil with underlying rock. The seeds sprouted quickly because the soil was shallow. But the plants soon wilted under the hot sun, and since they didn’t have deep roots, they died. Other seeds fell among thorns that grew up and choked out the tender plants. Still other seeds fell on fertile soil, and they produced a crop that was thirty, sixty, and even a hundred times as much as had been planted! Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand.”

10 His disciples came and asked him, “Why do you use parables when you talk to the people?”

11 He replied, “You are permitted to understand the secrets[a] of the Kingdom of Heaven, but others are not. 12 To those who listen to my teaching, more understanding will be given, and they will have an abundance of knowledge. But for those who are not listening, even what little understanding they have will be taken away from them. 13 That is why I use these parables,

For they look, but they don’t really see.
    They hear, but they don’t really listen or understand.

14 This fulfills the prophecy of Isaiah that says,

‘When you hear what I say,
    you will not understand.
When you see what I do,
    you will not comprehend.
15 For the hearts of these people are hardened,
    and their ears cannot hear,
and they have closed their eyes—
    so their eyes cannot see,
and their ears cannot hear,
    and their hearts cannot understand,
and they cannot turn to me
    and let me heal them.’[b]

16 “But blessed are your eyes, because they see; and your ears, because they hear. 17 I tell you the truth, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see, but they didn’t see it. And they longed to hear what you hear, but they didn’t hear it.

18 “Now listen to the explanation of the parable about the farmer planting seeds:19 The seed that fell on the footpath represents those who hear the message about the Kingdom and don’t understand it. Then the evil one comes and snatches away the seed that was planted in their hearts. 20 The seed on the rocky soil represents those who hear the message and immediately receive it with joy. 21 But since they don’t have deep roots, they don’t last long. They fall away as soon as they have problems or are persecuted for believing God’s word. 22 The seed that fell among the thorns represents those who hear God’s word, but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the worries of this life and the lure of wealth, so no fruit is produced. 23 The seed that fell on good soil represents those who truly hear and understand God’s word and produce a harvest of thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times as much as had been planted!”

Parable of the Wheat and Weeds

24 Here is another story Jesus told: “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a farmer who planted good seed in his field. 25 But that night as the workers slept, his enemy came and planted weeds among the wheat, then slipped away. 26 When the crop began to grow and produce grain, the weeds also grew.

27 “The farmer’s workers went to him and said, ‘Sir, the field where you planted that good seed is full of weeds! Where did they come from?’

28 “‘An enemy has done this!’ the farmer exclaimed.

“‘Should we pull out the weeds?’ they asked.

29 “‘No,’ he replied, ‘you’ll uproot the wheat if you do. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. Then I will tell the harvesters to sort out the weeds, tie them into bundles, and burn them, and to put the wheat in the barn.’”

Parable of the Mustard Seed

31 Here is another illustration Jesus used: “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed planted in a field. 32 It is the smallest of all seeds, but it becomes the largest of garden plants; it grows into a tree, and birds come and make nests in its branches.”

Parable of the Yeast

33 Jesus also used this illustration: “The Kingdom of Heaven is like the yeast a woman used in making bread. Even though she put only a little yeast in three measures of flour, it permeated every part of the dough.”

34 Jesus always used stories and illustrations like these when speaking to the crowds. In fact, he never spoke to them without using such parables. 35 This fulfilled what God had spoken through the prophet:

“I will speak to you in parables.
    I will explain things hidden since the creation of the world.[c]

Parable of the Wheat and Weeds Explained

36 Then, leaving the crowds outside, Jesus went into the house. His disciples said, “Please explain to us the story of the weeds in the field.”

37 Jesus replied, “The Son of Man[d] is the farmer who plants the good seed. 38 The field is the world, and the good seed represents the people of the Kingdom. The weeds are the people who belong to the evil one. 39 The enemy who planted the weeds among the wheat is the devil. The harvest is the end of the world,[e] and the harvesters are the angels.

40 “Just as the weeds are sorted out and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the world. 41 The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will remove from his Kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. 42 And the angels will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in their Father’s Kingdom. Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand!

Parables of the Hidden Treasure and the Pearl

44 “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure that a man discovered hidden in a field. In his excitement, he hid it again and sold everything he owned to get enough money to buy the field.

45 “Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant on the lookout for choice pearls. 46 When he discovered a pearl of great value, he sold everything he owned and bought it!

Parable of the Fishing Net

47 “Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a fishing net that was thrown into the water and caught fish of every kind. 48 When the net was full, they dragged it up onto the shore, sat down, and sorted the good fish into crates, but threw the bad ones away. 49 That is the way it will be at the end of the world. The angels will come and separate the wicked people from the righteous, 50 throwing the wicked into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 51 Do you understand all these things?”

“Yes,” they said, “we do.”

52 Then he added, “Every teacher of religious law who becomes a disciple in the Kingdom of Heaven is like a homeowner who brings from his storeroom new gems of truth as well as old.”

You get to decide which one you are going to be. You decide by your actions and the fruit is born from those actions. Never forget James 2.

Faith Without Works Is Dead

14 What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good[b] is that? 17 So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

18 But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. 19 You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder! 20 Do you want to be shown, you foolish person, that faith apart from works is useless?21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up his son Isaac on the altar? 22 You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed by his works; 23 and the Scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”—and he was called a friend of God. 24 You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone.25 And in the same way was not also Rahab the prostitute justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out by another way? 26 For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead.

Thoughts about the Holy Days

During this Passover Season and now as we count the Omer to Shavuot I have been doing some thinking. I think in terms of Sabbatical and Jubilee year cycles. I also think in terms of Millennial Cycles. Allow me to share some of my thoughts with you to ponder. You have the 7 days of the week. 6 days and the 7th one is Holy.

You have the 7 days of the week. 6 days and the 7th one is Holy.

You also have the Sabbatical year as the 7th year reflected in the weekly Sabbath. It too is holy and many of you just kept your first Sabbatical year.

Both of these are a reflection of the 7 millennia. The 7th one which is about to begin is the rest spoken of in the book of Hebrews that we are striving to enter now. The weekly Sabbath, the Sabbatical year and the Sabbatical Millennium are all related to each other.

It grieves me to think of the many who absolutely refuse to keep the weekly Sabbath and or the Sabbatical year, but they all want to enter that millennial rest spoken of in Hebrews. They will be told at that time I never knew you.

You also have the 7 Feasts, Passover on the 1st day of Unleavened Bread and the 7th day of Unleavened Bread. Pentecost, the Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement Sukkot and the 8th Day Feast.

The 7 days of Unleavened Bread are related to the weekly Sabbath, the Sabbatical year and the 7th Millennium. The Feast of Passover taking place on the first day of the 7 days of Unleavened Bread is likened to or associated with the first day of the week the first year of the Sabbatical cycle and the first Millennial day. The 7th day of Unleavened Bread is likened to the weekly Sabbath, the 7th year in the Sabbatical cycle and the 7th Millennium. The 1st month and the 7th month are also connected to these connections.

Even the preparation day of the 14th can be likened to the 1st day of the week and or the 8th day Feast and the 8th Millennium.

The 7 days of Sukkot is likened to the 7 millennia and the 8th day with the 8th Millennium and this is also connected to Pentecost

Wave Sheaf day is likened to the 8th Day and the 8th Millennium as is Pentecost and the Jubilee year.

Many suppose that Passover is the most important Feast day. I do not agree. I believe the most important Feast day is the 8th Day Feast. Do you or can you see this? Do you understand why I have said this?

The year of the Exodus was the year 1379 B.C. That year according to Torah Calendar the 14th was Sabbath and the 15th day when Passover was to take place was Sunday. This again ties in with the wave sheaf day.

In the first Millennium, Adam and Eve were kidnapped by Satan and taken out of the Garden of Eden. On the first day of Feast of Unleavened Bread, which in 1379 was the first day of the week, Yehovah took Israel out of Egypt. A reversal of what Satan had done to Adam and Eve in that first millennium. On the 7th day of Unleavened Bread, Israel crossed the Red Sea, and Pharaoh and his army were destroyed.  In the 7th Millennium Satan will be released for a short time at the end and then he will be thrown into the Lake of Fire.

I know some argue that they could not get to the Red Sea by the 7th day due to logistics. Well, I have done some calculating and I believe they could get there.
I used to do walk-a-thons in my youth. One such walk-a-thon was 40 Miles and as at 12-year-old teen, my friends and I use to walk this each year to raise money for whatever cause we were walking for. It was a long day but we walked that 40 miles in one day.

When I check my maps of Egypt and the Sinai, to get from Avaris or Rameses to Succoth was about 30 miles. Then to go from Succoth to Ethan on the edge of Egypt and Midian was about 150 miles. The distance from west of Ethan where they encamped to the Red Sea crossing site was again about 20 miles and the crossing of the Red Sea as about 17 miles.

The 7th day of Unleavened Bread in 1379 BC was then on the weekly Sabbath. It is my belief that Israel crossed the Red Sea that Friday night and Sabbath on the 7th day of Unleavened Bread. They walked day and night for the first 3 days before camping at Ethan. I as a child could walk 40 miles in one day.  So if they were to just cover 50 miles in a day and night they could easily cover the distance of 150 miles from Rameses to Ethan.

It is also possible that they were resting on the Sabbath. They had not yet been taught about the Sabbath. But let’s say they did rest on the Sabbath and then the Red Sea parted that Saturday night. We are not told when this happened so this is speculation. They crossed it by night and when morning came then the sea fell on the Egyptian army.

This day would then be the 8th day of the week also the first day and it too has many related connections. I do know that the 1st day of unleavened Bread in 1379 BC was the wave sheaf day that year. But we are just thinking out loud and considering the many relationships. Connecting the many dots and lessons we can learn from them in understanding the plan of Yehovah on a much bigger scale than most look at.

Now Wave Shead day takes place on the 1st day of the week or the 8th day of the week. Israel was delivered from Pharoah on this wave sheaf day, the day after the first born died. And again they were delivered from Pharoah when they crossed the Red Sea.

On wave Sheaf day Yehshua delivered the first of the Saint before Yehovah as the First Fruits of mankind which is what the Barley represents. Wave Sheaf day is the 8th day of the week. It is directly connected to the 8th day of Sukkot which is the 8th Day Feast. The Feast few understand or know anything about. This is the greatest day of all the Holy Days. It is the day Yehovah will dwell with mankind here on this earth. It was on this day that Solomon dedicated the Temple. This was the Feast of Dedication that John was referring to in John 10:22, the 8th Day Feast.

So the 8th day of the week during the Days of Unleavened Bread is the very first time that anyone was brought up to Heaven. In the 8th Millennium on the 8th Day Feast, all of mankind that has ever lived will be raised up and presented before Yehovah and judgment then occurs.

We are told to come up to Jerusalem three times in a year for each of the three Chags. Wave Sheaf day is one reason and the other is the 8th day Feast. Both of these Feast teach you about the raising of the dead at these two chags. But there is another chag, Shavuot.

Shavuot is also an 8th Day Feast. Pentecost Sunday takes place on the 8th day. There are 7 Sabbaths that you count and then you count the 50th day. This is 8 Holy Days in a row.  This is the same for the Jubilee cycle. Each Sabbatical year represented by the weekly Sabbath as you count to Pentecost.

So if Yehshua led the host of captives from the grave in 31 C.E. on Wave Sheaf day, (there is no doubt in my mind, but I just pose the question) ( and that jubilee cycle ended in 35 C.E.) then 50 Jubilee cycles later, would bring us to the Jubilee cycle ending in 2485 C.E. That is 468 years from now. I have no idea what will happen then, during the reign of King David. Just sharing my thoughts.

But it is my position that at the end of the Great Tribulation that the Saints will be changed and that year is to be 2033.

I have left something out.

Pentecost is the next wave offering. It represents the bread with leaven in it that is waved before Yehovah to be accepted of the first fruits of the wheat crop at that time. We are that wheat but with us are also the tares that will be gathered and burned at the end of this age. This wave offering is like the Wave Sheaf day offering when those who were dead were made alive again. So at Pentecost, those who have died in the faith will be brought back to life.

Again this is an 8th-day event. It is also a Jubilee-type event. It is also the second Chag festival. Each Chag is when Yehovah performs some event about the raising of the dead in the faith back to life. We are striving to be ready by Shavuot when it happens in real life.

With each week of the counting of the Omer, we are to be perfecting ourselves and ridding ourselves of sin and destructive habits. We start out as barley grains. The least of the grains used for bread. And we are to grow in our understanding of Yehovah and His ways. So that by the time of Shavuot we are a full meaty grain of wheat.

Passover season is the mikveh or cleansing we must do in putting out sin from our lives. This is when we prepare ourselves for the engagement ceremony at Mount Sinai. It is the 5 wise women adding more oil to their flask to be ready, while the foolish do not get ready and do not add more oil, more of the holy spirit by study and living out of the word. Putting into practice those things we have learned.

Sukkot is the actual wedding party and ceremony followed by the 8th day which is then the consummation of the wedding week. So now the consummation is likened to the wave sheaf day and Shavuot day when the Saints will be raised and those of us alive will be changed in the twinkling of an eye.

Add now the Jubilee year, when you are to return to your original land possessions. Go beyond the land of Israel but think bigger and for all of mankind. The Jubilee year is again an 8th Sabbatical year in a row event. It is like the 8th day and Wave Sheaf day and Shavuot all combined. It takes place in the 8th Millenium when we are to be reunited with Yehovah. It is not just the consummation of Israel to Yehovah, but of all of mankind to Yehovah and to each other.

Can you imagine that day?

How AWESOME is Yehovah? How Great is His plan of Salvation for all of Mankind and for each one of us? There is such great order to everything He does. And to think, just how privileged we are, to know just some of these things as we look through the glasses darkly.

Feast of Oaths-a Blood Covenant

We are almost at the end of this last Jubilee cycle. Wars are to begin after 2017. You need to be ready for this.

Now we have completed our first week of counting the Omer. Why is this so important? What was the meaning of those symbols Yehshua did at the Last Supper meal and then in reality on the Tree?

I would like to share with you one chapter from our book, The 2300 Days of Hell, which I hope will help you to understand the importance of these 7 weeks of counting the Omer.

Chapter 5 | What does “Weeks” Mean?

24 “Seventy weeks are decreed for your people and for your set-apart city, to put an end to the transgression, and to seal up sins, and to cover crookedness, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up vision and prophet, and to anoint the Most Set-apart. 25 “Know, then, and understand: from the going forth of the command to restore and build Yerushalayim until Messiah the Prince is seven weeks and sixty-two weeks. It shall be built again, with streets and a trench, but in times of affliction. 26 “And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off and have naught. And the people of a coming prince shall destroy the city and the set-apart place. And the end of it is with a flood. And wastes are decreed, and fighting until the end. 27 “And he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week. And in the middle of the week he shall put an end to slaughtering and meal offering. And on the wing of abominations he shall lay waste, even until the complete end and that which is decreed is poured out on the one who lays waste1.” Footnote: 1Mt. 24:15. (Daniel 9:24-27)

Here we are now 207 pages into this subject of Daniel’s 70 weeks and we have only covered the first 7 words of this prophecy.

“Seventy weeks are decreed for your people”

We have explained who Daniel’s people are. They are all of Israel and we have explained who they are today. They are the descendants of the Celtic people and they are the Nation of Britain and the British Commonwealth as well as the United States of America and the State of Israel. It is extremely important to understand who this prophecy is speaking about.

We have now shown you that the 70 Weeks is not 70 X 7 which would give you a total of 490 years. People have been using this information for every time of trial for over the past 2000 years and it has never proven true. Nor will it for any current theories trying to use it for the conclusion of the so-called “gap theory”.

So what is the answer to this riddle?

It is actually very simple and it comes from a proper understanding of the words spoken. And yet it is extremely deep in the meaning of this word. Prepare to have the tent pegs of your mind stretched as we examine this word “weeks” for clarity.

Here is this first sentence again with the Stong’s Hebrew notes.

Dan 9:24 SeventyH7657 weeksH7620 are determinedH2852 uponH5921 thy peopleH5971

The word Seventy is very easy to understand and it is;

H7657 shi ym shib-eem’
Multiple of H7651; seventy: – seventy, threescore and ten (+ -teen).

Now it is the word “weeks” that is the focus of this chapter. When we look it up in Strong’s Concordance we have a few words to investigate.

H7620 shaw-boo’-ah, shaw-boo’-ah, sheb-oo-aw’
Properly passive participle of H7650 as a denominative of H7651; literally sevened, that is, a week (specifically of years): – seven, week.

H7650 shaw-bah’
A primitive root; properly to be complete, but used only as a denominative from H7651; to seven oneself, that is, swear (as if by repeating a declaration seven times): – adjure, charge (by an oath, with an oath), feed to the full [by mistake for H7646], take an oath, X straitly, (cause to, make to) swear.

H7646 saw-bah’, saw-bay’-ah
A primitive root; to sate, that is, fill to satisfaction (literally or figuratively): – have enough, fill (full, self, with), be (to the) full (of), have plenty of, be satiate, satisfy (with), suffice, be weary of.

H7651 sheh’-bah, shib-aw’
From H7650; a primitive cardinal number; seven (as the sacred full one); also (adverbially) seven times; by implication a week; by extension an indefinite number: – (+ by) seven ([-fold], -s, [-teen, -teenth], -th, times). Compare H7658.

H7658 shib-aw-naw’
Prolonged for the masculine of H7651; seven: – seven.

This is the definition of this word we call “weeks”. Before I say anything to influence your thoughts lets first look where else this same word was used in the bible. We have 19 times it is used. Eleven of these times we have a clear example of the word.

H7620 shaw-boo’-ah, shaw-boo’-ah, sheb-oo-aw’

Our first example in Exodus tells us it is speaking of the “Feast of Weeks”.

22“And perform the Festival of Weeks for yourself, of the first-fruits of wheat harvest, and the Festival of Ingathering at the turn of the year. (Exodus 34:22)

Our second verse that this word “weeks” is found in Leviticus 12:5 and it does not match the line of use we are talking about here but the next verse in Numbers does and it too is talking about the Feast of Weeks.

26 ‘And on the day of the first-fruits, when you bring a new grain offering to YHWH at your Festival of Weeks, you have a set-apart gathering, you do no servile work. (Numbers 28:26)

The fourth through the sixth verses that are given to us from our word search for the word “weeks” as found in Deuteronomy and they too are speaking about this Feast of “Weeks”.

9 “Count seven weeks for yourself. Begin to count seven weeks from the time you begin to put the sickle to the grain. 10 “And you shall perform the Festival of Weeks to Yehovah your Elohim, according to the voluntary offering from your hand, which you give as Yehovah your Elohim blesses you. (Deuteronomy 16:9-10)

Our seventh usage of the word “weeks” is again in Deuteronomy and yet again in 2 Chronicles. Are you seeing a pattern here?

16 “Three times a year all your males appear before Yehovah your Elohim in the place which He chooses: at the Festival of Unleavened Bread, and at the Festival of Weeks, and at the Festival of Booths. And none should appear before Yehovah empty-handed, (Deuteronomy 16:16)

13 even as the duty of every day required, offering according to the command of Mosheh, for the Sabbaths, and for the New Moons, and for the appointed times three times a year: the Festival of Unleavened Bread, and the Festival of Weeks, and the Festival of Booths. (2 Chronicles 8:13)

Up until this point, all of the examples given to us are talking about the Feast of Weeks. And then the next Scriptures given to us are the ones we are in question of. The 70 Weeks of Daniel 9. Out of 15 verses with the word ‘weeks’ in them we have 11 of them describing to us the Feast of Weeks with five of those occurrences taking place in the very set of scriptures we are examining; that is Daniel 9:24-26.

24 “Seventy weeks are decreed for your people and for your set-apart city, to put an end to the transgression, and to seal up sins, and to cover crookedness, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up vision and prophet, and to anoint the Most Set-apart. 25 “Know, then, and understand: from the going forth of the command to restore and build Yerushalayim until Messiah the Prince is seven weeks and sixty-two weeks. It shall be built again, with streets and a trench, but in times of affliction. 26 “And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off and have naught. And the people of a coming prince shall destroy the city and the set-apart place. And the end of it is with a flood. And wastes are decreed, and fighting until the end. (Daniel 9:24-26)

We also have four more verses where the word “weeks” is found just in the singular and they are found in two additional places in Daniel 9:27; again, part of the texts we are examining. This is very remarkable.

As many of you may not know what the “Feast of Weeks” is, then we need to go back to Lev. 23 where we are told each of the Festivals we are to keep in Yehovah’s Holy Appointed time calendar.

5 ‘In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, between the evenings, is the Passover to Yehovah. 6 ‘And on the fifteenth day of this month is the Festival of Unleavened Bread to Yehovah – seven days you eat unleavened bread. 7 ‘On the first day you have a set-apart gathering, you do no servile work. 8 ‘And you shall bring an offering made by fire to Yehovah for seven days. On the seventh day is a set-apart gathering, you do no servile work.’ ” 9 And Yehovah spoke to Mosheh, saying, 10 “Speak to the children of Yisra’el, and you shall say to them, ‘When you come into the land which I give you, and shall reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the first-fruits of your harvest to the priest. 11 ‘And he shall wave the sheaf before Yehovah, for your acceptance. On the morrow after the Sabbath the priest waves it. 12 ‘And on that day when you wave the sheaf, you shall prepare a male lamb a year old, a perfect one, as a burnt offering to Yehovah, 13 and its grain offering: two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil, an offering made by fire to Yehovah?, a sweet fragrance, and its drink offering: one-fourth of a hin of wine. 14 ‘And you do not eat bread or roasted grain or fresh grain until the same day that you have brought an offering to your Elohim – a law forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. 15 ‘And from the morrow after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, you shall count for yourselves: seven completed Sabbaths. 16 ‘Until the morrow after the seventh Sabbath you count fifty days, then you shall bring a new grain offering to Yehovah. 17 ‘Bring from your dwellings for a wave offering two loaves of bread, of two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour they are, baked with leaven, first-fruits to Yehovah. 18 ‘And besides the bread, you shall bring seven lambs a year old, perfect ones, and one young bull and two rams. They are a burnt offering to Yehovah, with their grain offering and their drink offerings, an offering made by fire for a sweet fragrance to Yehovah. 19 ‘And you shall offer one male goat as a sin offering, and two male lambs a year old, as a peace offering. 20 ‘And the priest shall wave them, besides the bread of the first-fruits, as a wave offering before Yehovah, besides the two lambs. They are set-apart to Yehovah for the priest. 21 ‘And on this same day you shall proclaim a set-apart gathering for yourselves, you do no servile work on it – a law forever in all your dwellings throughout your generations. (Leviticus 23:5-21)
You are commanded to keep the Passover. Then, from the Sunday during the Days of Unleavened Bread, you are to count 7 Sabbaths and after the 7th Sabbath you are to count to the 50th day.

15 ‘And from the morrow after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, you shall count for yourselves: seven completed Sabbaths. 16 ‘Until the morrow after the seventh Sabbath you count fifty days, then you shall bring a new grain offering to Yehovah. (Leviticus 23:15-16)

Christianity knows this to be Pentecost; Pentecost Sunday to be exact. It is also known in Hebrew as Shavuot.

This feast marks two important events, occurring on the same calendar day but separated in time by many centuries. The feast may be called by the Hebrew Shavuot (occurring seven weeks after an event) or by the anglicized Greek Pentecost (on the fiftieth day after an event). (Shavuot is the plural of shabua. The Jewish Feast of Pentecost, or Festival of Weeks, is called in Hebrew, Shavuot.)

The word “weeks” is the plural of the word “week”. Our word in Daniel 9:24 is the plural word and in Hebrew this word is Shabua and the plural for Shabua is Shabuot or Shavuot; the “v” and “b” sounding the same.

Shavuot or Shabuoth
n. the Hebrew name for Pentecost

It is quite fair, then, to say that our verse is saying Seventy Shavuot. We read in Jeremiah something that is of interest that was not noted earlier.

24 ‘And they do not say in their heart, “Let us now fear Yehovah our Elohim, who gives rain, both the former and the latter, in its season. He guards for us the appointed weeks of the harvest.” (Jeremiah 5:24)

Here in Jeremiah, this word “weeks” is called SHAVUOT.

So instead of saying “Seventy weeks are decreed for your people” we could say “Seventy Shavuot are decreed for your people”.

We are going to take a slight detour to get an even deeper understanding of what Shavuot is all about. To some people, it is the day when Yehovah gave the Ten Commandments to Moses and the Nation of Israel and this is true. (Exodus 19-20) To most Christians, this is the day the Holy Spirit was given to the Apostles in Acts 2 and this is also true but what most people do not realize is what this day means to Yehovah. We have three names for this Feast of Shavuot also known as the Feast of Pentecost.

1. Chag haKatzir- Festival of the Harvest ( Exodus 23:16)
2. Yom Habikkurim- Day of Firstfruits (Numbers 28:26)
3. Chag haShavuot- Festival of Weeks (Duet. 16:10)

The Less Common Name Connection to Shavuot is “The Feast of Oaths”

Again let us look at the definition of the word “weeks”.

H7620- Taken from Brown-Driver-Briggs shâbûa / shebûâh BDB Definition:
1) seven, period of seven (days or years), heptad, week 1a) period of seven days, a week?1a1) Feast of Weeks?1b) heptad, seven (of years)
Part of Speech: noun masculine?A Related Word by BDB/Strong’s Number: properly, passive participle of
H7650 as a denominative of H7651
Same Word by TWOT Number: 2318d

As we did at the beginning, we are led to another root word to look at that ties into the word “week” or “Shabua” and this is the word “Shaba”.

H7650 -Brown-Driver-Briggs shâba BDB Definition:
1) to swear, adjure 1a) (Qal) sworn (participle) 1b) (Niphal) 1b1) to swear, take an oath 1b2) to swear (of Elohim by Himself) 1b3) to curse
1c) (Hiphil)?1c1) to cause to take an oath 1c2) to adjure Part of Speech: verb
H7650 -Strong’s shâba shaw-bah’
A primitive root; properly to be complete, but used only as a denominative from H7651; to seven oneself, that is, swear (as if by repeating a declaration seven times): – adjure, charge (by an oath, with an oath), feed to the full [by mistake for H7646], take an oath, X straitly, (cause to, make to) swear.

By investigating just these 3 Hebrew words (H-7620, H-7650 and H-7651) which stem from the word “Shavuot”, we can now make the connection to it as the “Feast of Oaths”. When you seven yourselves you are making an oath.We read in The Book of Customs:

We read in The Book of Customs:

” The Book of Jubilees, an ancient text that survived in part in the Dead Sea Scrolls and in its entirety in the ancient Ethiopian language Ge’ez, gives an entirely different spin on Shavuot. The word shavua ,”week” is a near-homonym to the word for “oath”(shevuah), and the anonymous author of Jubilees says that Shavuot was, in fact, the “Feast of Oaths”

Nissan Mindel confirms this meaning of Shavuot in his book:

“Shavuot means not only “weeks” but also “oaths.” The name indicates the two oaths which G-d and the Jewish people exchanged, upon the day of the Giving of the Torah, to remain faithful to each other forever.”

What does “swearing an oath” mean in the light of Ancient Near East Covenant Structure and Context? We are shown this in Exodus chapters 19-24, which is done up in a Suzerain-Vassal Covenant Treaty Format.

A Suzerain-Vassal Treaty is a conditional Covenant where a Great King or Nation (Suzerain) rules over a Lesser Servant King/Nation (Vassal). Whereas the Vassal pledges or vows an oath of love and loyal allegiance and to uphold all the commitments laid forth by the Great King-Suzerain. While this was common knowledge in the ancient near east within covenant making between nations, we can begin to see how much more depth a Covenant Kingdom has in the Eyes of our Creator.

A Suzerain Treaty has the following 7 conditions to be fulfilled.
1. Identification or Preamble of those involved in the treaty.
2. Prologue listing deeds performed by the Suzerain King already done for the vassal nation.
3. Commitments to be honored by the vassal for the time period of the treaty.
4. Terms for annual reading to the nation of the treaty to renewal allegiance to the treaty and Suzerain
5. Divine witness to the treaty. In our case, YHWH is our Witness.
6. Blessings and Cursings for obedience and disobedience to the Covenant Treaty.
7. A Ratification Ceremony with oaths and a sacrificial meal to show participation of those involved in the Covenant Treaty.
“Oath of Compliance”

From George E. Mendenhall’s “Ancient Israel’s Faith and History” Description of the 6th typical section in common ANE Treaty Structure.

Page 69…”#6. Oath of Compliance. A treaty is a text but an oath is the actual mechanism whereby the text is ratified and brought to life, no longer just words in a document but a functioning reality in the lives of actual people. We have ample evidence of treaties concluding with rituals of compliance, usually spoken oaths but sometimes physical gestures. In much the same way, treaties today are ratified by signatures and handshakes activating the new relationships and its terms. It should not be surprising that the biblical story of the Covenant at Mount Sinai reaches its climax with the escaped slaves pledging to abide by the covenant obligations therby defining and activating themselves as the people of YHWH (See Exodus 24: 3-8).”

3 And Mosheh came and related to the people all the Words of Yehovah and all the right-rulings. And all the people answered with one voice and said, “All the Words which Yehovah has spoken we shall do.” 4 And Mosheh wrote down all the Words of Yehovah, and rose up early in the morning, and built an altar at the foot of the mountain, and twelve standing columns for the twelve tribes of Yisrael.5 And he sent young men of the children of Yisra’el, and they offered burnt offerings and slaughtered peace slaughterings of bulls to Yehovah.6 And Mosheh took half the blood and put it in basins, and half the blood he sprinkled on the altar.7 And he took the Book of the Covenant and read in the hearing of the people. And they said, “All that Yehovah has spoken we shall do, and obey.”8 And Mosheh took the blood and sprinkled it on the people, and said, “See, the blood of the covenant which Yehovah has made with you concerning all these Words.” (Exodus 24:3-8)

Speaking about the covenant at Sinai and near East covenants Rene Lopez says:

“Foundationally, Beri’t (“covenant”) signifies a binding agreement between two parties… The function of Beri’t is basically that of an oath, commitment, or bond between two parties.”

Page 87… “The oath. At the conclusion of a covenant, the vassal usually uttered an oath. This gave assurance to the suzerain that the stipulations of the treaty would be kept. Furthermore, an oath ceremony also served to secure bilateral faithfulness of the parties.”

Page 88…”Oaths were usually uttered at the conclusion of a treaty, which implied acceptance of its terms. However, Israel invoked an oath in Exodus 19:8, All that the YHWH has spoken we will do, before hearing the covenant. Then, after hearing the covenant in 24:3, 7, they consented again.”

“So oath and stipulations are correlated expressions of the concluded covenant itself, or the oath is the divine sanction of the agreement as affirmed in the covenant declaration and as laid down in the stipulations.”

We can read of this “Oath” made by our King, our Suzerain, Yehovah at Shavuot, and the Feast of Weeks at Mount Sinai.

3 And Mosheh went up to Elohim, and Yehovah called to him from the mountain, saying, “This is what you are to say to the house of Ya’aqov, and declare to the children of Yisra’el: 4 ‘You have seen what I did to the Mitsrites, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Myself. 5 ‘And now, if you diligently obey My voice, and shall guard My covenant, then you shall be My treasured possession above all the peoples – for all the earth is Mine –6 ‘and you shall be to Me a reign of priests and a set-apart nation.’ Those are the words which you are to speak to the children of Yisra’el.” 7 And Mosheh came and called for the elders of the people, and set before them all these words which Yehovah commanded him. (Exodus 19:3-7)

The Covenant at Sinai is intertwined with a direct Oath and Covenant By Yehovah with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

15 And the Messenger of Yehovah called to Abraham a second time from the heavens, 16 and said, “By Myself I have sworn, declares Yehovah, because you have done this, and have not withheld your son, your only son, 17 that I shall certainly bless you, and I shall certainly increase your seed as the stars of the heavens and as the sand which is on the seashore, and let your seed possess the gate of their enemies. 18 “And in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.” (Genesis 22:15-18)

Is this not exactly what Paul is talking about in Hebrew 6?

13 For Elohim, having promised Abraham, since He could swear by no one greater, swore by Himself, 14 saying, “Truly, blessing I shall bless you, and increasing I shall increase you.”15 And so, after being patient, he obtained the promise.16 For men do indeed swear by the one greater, and an oath for confirmation is for them an end of all dispute.17 In this way Elohim, resolving to show even more clearly to the heirs of promise the unchangeableness of His purpose, confirmed it by an oath,18 so that by two unchangeable matters in which it is impossible for Elohim to lie, we might have strong encouragement, we who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the expectation set before us,19 which we have as an anchor of the life, both safe and firm, and entering into that within the veil,20 where Yehovah has entered as a forerunner for us, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchezidek  (Hebrew 6:13-20)

The covenant that Yehovah made with Abraham is told to us in Genesis 15 and you should understand, this is a blood covenant. Abraham wanted to know what his great reward was because he had no children.

7 And He said to him, “I am Yehovah, who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldeans, to give you this land to inherit it.” 8 And he said, “Master Yehovah, whereby do I know that I possess it?” 9 And He said to him, “Bring Me a three-year-old heifer, and a three-year-old female goat, and a three-year-old ram, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon.” 10 And he took all these to Him and cut them in the middle, and placed each half opposite the other, but he did not cut the birds. 11 And the birds of prey came down on the carcasses, and A?ram drove them away. (Genesis 15:7-11)

17 And it came to be, when the sun went down and it was dark, that see, a smoking oven and a burning torch passing between those pieces. 18 On the same day Yehovah made a covenant with Abram, saying, “I have given this land to your seed, from the river of Mitsrayim to the great river, the River Euphrates, (Genesis 15:17-18)

We have this oath that began with Yehovah making a promise to Abraham, and this oath was then spoken to Isaac and Jacob and then ratified in blood at Mount Sinai 50 days after the Passover and the Exodus by the people themselves agreeing to it. Many people will be able to quote what it said in Romans but few, if any, understand what it means. We read in Romans chapter 10:

That if you confess with your mouth the Master Yehshua and believe in your heart that Elohim has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. (Romans 10:9)

This word “confess,” means something entirely different than just saying the name of Jesus out loud. It is the Greek word;

G367 homologe om-ol-og-eh’-o
From a compound of the base of G3674 and G3056; to assent, that is, covenant, acknowledge: – con- (pro-) fess, confession is made, give thanks, promise.

In context this means one who is “confessing” faith in Yehshua; one who is coming into Covenant and binding themselves by oath to Him and agrees to the Covenant that Yehshua has presented at Sinai. As the “Lesser King” or “Master” to the Suzerain Yehovah, Yehshua’s Covenant is the same as the Father’s, which means you are entering into an agreement to keep and be loyal to the Torah and you are then restored back into the Kingdom!

Keep in mind that in Ancient world culture and context, when a covenant was cut between a Suzerain and vassal, that meant that as long as the vassal was keeping the commitments of the covenant with the King, no one else could come against that nation or vassal without having to face the full Sovereignty of the Suzerain King and all of his resources.

On the other hand, it also meant that if the vassal broke the commitments of the Covenant, the Vassal would suffer the consequences invoked by the Suzerain/King.

The Entire Book of Deuteronomy is structured as a typical Suzerain-Vassal Covenant Document, which is a more detailed reiteration of the Covenant at Mount Sinai to the Second generation in the wilderness prior to entering the Land.

When you confess your sins you are in fact admitting to having broken the covenant made at Mount Sinai and want to return to the terms of that covenant as we had agreed to. By doing this you escape the curses that you are now under.

Avinu, Malkeinu (Our Father, Our KING) states HIS oath to Israel again in Chapter 29…

9 “Therefore you shall guard the words of this covenant, and do them, so that you prosper in all that you do.? 10 “All of you are standing today before Yehovah your Elohim: your leaders, your tribes, your elders and your officers, all the men of Yisra’el, 11 your little ones, your wives, and your sojourner who is in the midst of your camp, from the one who cuts your wood to the one who draws your water, 12 so that you should enter into covenant with Yehovah your Elohim, and into His oath, which Yehovah your Elohim makes with you today, 13 in order to establish you today as a people for Himself, and He Himself be your Elohim, as He has spoken to you, and as He has sworn to your fathers, to Abraham, to Yits’aq, and to Ya’aqov. 14 “And not with you alone I am making this covenant and this oath, 15 but with him who stands here with us today before Yehovah our Elohim,

as well as with him who is not here with us today.

(Deuteronomy 29:9-15)

Those who confess the name of Yehshua, as we are told in Romans 10:9 which we just read, confess to breaking this covenant and want to come back and begin to obey it.
The nation of Israel, our ancestors, gave the Oath to obey three different times. Three times we swore to keep all that Yehovah had said concerning the covenant. The first time is prior to hearing the Commandment by Yehovah.

8 And all the people answered together and said, “All that Yehovah has spoken we shall do.” So Mosheh brought back the words of the people to Yehovah (Exodus 19:8)

The second time is at the ratification Ceremony prior to the Offerings.

3 And Mosheh came and related to the people all the Words of Yehovah and all the right-rulings. And all the people answered with one voice and said, “All the Words which Yehovah has spoken we shall do.” (Exodus 24:3)

The third time is at the ratification prior to the sprinkling of the blood again making this a blood covenant.

7 And he took the Book of the Covenant and read in the hearing of the people. And they said, “All that Yehovah has spoken we shall do, and obey.” (Exodus 24:7)

Acts 2 is also an affirmation of the Covenant on Shavuot! And let me go even further and say that by keeping Pentecost or Shavuot you are in fact sevening yourself. You are reaffirming your commitment to the Covenant our ancestors made on our behalf back at mount Sinai over 3396 years ago in 1339 B.C.

1 And when the Day of the Festival of Weeks had come, they were all with one mind in one place.2 And suddenly there came a sound from the heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.3 And there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and settled on each one of them.4 And they were all filled with the Set-apart Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them to speak.5 Now in Yerushalayim there were dwelling Yehu?im, dedicated men from every nation under the heaven. (Acts 2:1-5)

“And when the Day of the Festival of Weeks had come, they were all with one mind in one place.”

We know that there was a specific service and set of prayers done at the Beit HaMikdash (The Holy Temple) on Shavuot, including a recitation of the Ten Commandments.
Everyone who was there at the Temple during the time of Shavuot was recommitting themselves to Yehovah and the Covenant that was made at Sinai. All with one mind and one accord and in one place!Ancient Covenants were often ratified or enacted by multiple elements. These included the oaths spoken by both parties, usually a sacrifice, and a shared meal. Additionally, there were normally stipulations included in the Covenant to recite and review the Covenant annually, and/or at the time of a new Vassal King in order for renewal and remembrance of the Covenant made with the Suzerain KING!

Each year at Shavuot, the Feast of Pentecost we review the Ten Commandments found in Exodus 20 and expanded in Exodus 34. Then again each Sabbatical year this entire covenant is read out loud in the hearing of all the people. Joshua did this the very first year at what today is known as Joshua’s Altar. And we do this one the firs day of Sukkot each Sabbatical year in Jerusalem.

The covenant at Mount Sinai is a ketubah or marriage contract. A vow. We read it at Sukkot because Sukkot represents the time of the wedding when we marry Yehovah. This covenant is then once again restated just before the wedding.

The covenant made at Sinai was a Blood Covenant. Read what Henry Trumbull has to say on this.

A “covenant union in sacrifice” is an indefinite and ambiguous term. It may mean a covenant union wrought by sacrifice, or a covenant union accompanied by sacrifice, or a covenant union exhibited in sacrifice. But, in whatever sense it is employed, the fact remains true, that, wherever a bloody offering is made in connection with sacrifice and with covenanting, it is the blood- drinking, the blood-pouring, or the blood-touching, that represents the covenant-making; while eating the flesh of the victim, or of the feast otherwise provided, represents the covenant-ratifying, or the covenant-showing…

“Thus at Sinai the formal covenanting of the Lord with his people was accompanied by sacrificing. Representatives of the people of Israel ” offered burnt-offerings, and sacrificed peace-offerings of oxen unto the Lord.” Nothing is here said of the technical sin-offering, but the whole burnt- offering and the peace-offering are included. The blood-outpouring and the blood-sprinkling preceded any feasting. And as if to make it clear that “by sprinkling the blood ” and not ” by eating the flesh of the victim,” the ” covenant union in [this] sacrifice was represented,” Moses took a portion of the blood and ” sprinkled [it] on the altar,” and another portion “and sprinkled it on the people,” saying as he did so,” Behold the blood of the covenant, which the Lord hath made with you.” It was not until after this covenanting by blood, that the people of Israel, by their representatives,” did eat and drink ” in ratification, or in proof, or in exhibit, of the covenant thus wrought by blood.”

We have these exact same things spelled out to us in Exodus. It is Yehovah and the Nation of Israel making a blood covenant on the Day of Shavuot. Yehovah spoke these commandments in person on Shavuot, so that all of Israel heard them in Exodus 20. He then wrote them on stone in Exodus 24.

Now He said to Moses, “Come up to the Lord, you and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel, and worship from afar. And Moses alone shall come near the Lord, but they shall not come near; nor shall the people go up with him.”
So Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord and all the judgments. And all the people answered with one voice and said, “All the words which the Lord has said we will do.” And Moses wrote all the words of the Lord. And he rose early in the morning, and built an altar at the foot of the mountain, and twelve pillars according to the twelve tribes of Israel. Then he sent young men of the children of Israel, who offered burnt offerings and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen to the Lord. And Moses took half the blood and put it in basins, and half the blood he sprinkled on the altar. Then he took the Book of the Covenant and read in the hearing of the people. And they said, “All that the Lord has said we will do, and be obedient.” And Moses took the blood, sprinkled it on the people, and said, “This is the blood of the covenant which the Lord has made with you according to all these words.”
Then Moses went up, also Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel, and they saw the God of Israel. And there was under His feet as it were a paved work of sapphire stone, and it was like the very heavens in its clarity. But on the nobles of the children of Israel He did not lay His hand. So they saw God, and they ate and drank.
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Come up to Me on the mountain and be there; and I will give you tablets of stone, and the law and commandments which I have written, that you may teach them.” (Exodus 24:1-11)

And after Moses broke those stones Yehovah wrote them again on both sides of the stone in Exodus 34.

This is exactly what the Apostle Paul is discussing in Chapter 9 of the Book of Hebrews, Connecting The Ratification Ceremony at Sinai with Yehshua The Mashiach, Our Redeemer and Mediator of the Renewed Covenant!

1 Now the first covenant indeed had regulations of worship and the earthly set-apart place. 2 For a Tent was prepared: the first part, in which was the lampstand, and the table, and the showbread, which is called the Set-apart Place. 3 And after the second veil, the part of the Tent which is called Most Set-apart, 4 to which belonged the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid on all sides with gold, in which were the golden pot that held the manna, and the rod of Aharon that budded, and the tablets of the covenant, 5 and above it the kerubim of esteem were overshadowing the place of atonement – about which we do not now speak in detail. 6 And these having been prepared like this, the priests always went into the first part of the Tent, accomplishing the services. 7 But into the second part the high priest went alone once a year, not without blood, which he offered for himself and for sins of ignorance of the people, 8 the Set-apart Spirit signifying this, that the way into the Most Set-apart Place was not yet made manifest while the first Tent has a standing, 9 which was a parable for the present time in which both gifts and slaughters are offered which are unable to perfect the one serving, as to his conscience, 10 only as to foods and drinks, and different washings, and fleshly regulations imposed until a time of setting matters straight. 11 But Messiah, having become a High Priest of the coming good matters, through the greater and more perfect Tent not made with hands, that is, not of this creation, 12 entered into the Most Set-apart Place once for all, not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood, having obtained everlasting redemption. 13 For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the defiled, sets apart for the cleansing of the flesh, 14 how much more shall the blood of the Messiah, who through the everlasting Spirit offered Himself unblemished to Elohim, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living Elohim? 15 And because of this He is the Mediator of a renewed covenant, so that, death having taken place for redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, those who are called might receive the promise of the everlasting inheritance. 16 For where a covenant is, it is necessary for the death of the covenanted one to be established. 17 For a covenant over those dead is firm, since it is never valid while the covenanted one is living. (Deut. 24, Numbers 5, Romans 7)*18 Therefore not even the first covenant was instituted without blood. 19 For when, according to Torah, every command had been spoken by Mosheh to all the people, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people, 20 saying, “This is the blood of the covenant which Elohim commanded you.” 21 And in the same way he sprinkled with blood both the Tent and all the vessels of the service. 22 And, according to the Torah, almost all is cleansed with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. 23 It was necessary, then, that the copies of the heavenly ones should be cleansed with these, but the heavenly ones themselves with better slaughter offerings than these. 24 For Messiah has not entered into a Set-apart Place made by hand – figures of the true – but into the heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of Elohim on our behalf, 25 not that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest enters into the Set-apart Place year by year with blood not his own. 26 For if so, He would have had to suffer often, since the foundation of the world. But now He has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to put away sin by the offering of Himself. 27 And as it awaits men to die once, and after this the judgment, 28 so also the Messiah, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, shall appear a second time, apart from sin, to those waiting for Him, unto deliverance. (Hebrews 9:1-28)

As we have shown, Shavuot is also the portrait of an intimate, loving relationship between Yehovah and Israel. This is Israel marrying her KING, coming under the Chuppah of Mt Sinai, accepting the Ketubah (Wedding Contract) of the Creator of the Universe. Even though Yehovah would know that we would violate this marriage, that we would commit idolatry and adultery by going after other mighty ones, HE instilled provisions for Restoration of His Bride through Yehshua the Messiah!It was also on Shavuot in Acts chapter 2 when a new realm of our Marriage Covenant was brought to life and reality when the Spirit of the Torah-The Ruach HaQodesh (Holy Spirit) was given and recognized as the interwoven connection to the Letter of the Torah that was given at Mount Sinai. The Ruach is our Seal from The KING that we have been marked for redemption to enter the Kingdom of Yehovah by the work of Yehshua the Messiah!

The Ruach is our Seal from The KING that we have been marked for redemption to enter the Kingdom of Yehovah by the work of Yehshua the Messiah!Did Yehovah our Groom, our King, give His Vassal-Israel a Signet/Wedding Ring, or A sign to the Nations that We as His Bride are Married to the Great King in which accompanies the Seal of The Ruach HaQodesh?

Did Yehovah our Groom, our King, give His Vassal-Israel a Signet/Wedding Ring, or A sign to the Nations that We as His Bride are Married to the Great King in which accompanies the Seal of The Ruach HaQodesh?13 “And you, speak to the children of

13 “And you, speak to the children of Yisrael, saying, ‘My Sabbaths you are to guard, by all means, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, to know that I, Yehovah, am setting you apart. 14 ‘And you shall guard the Sabbath, for it is set-apart to you. Everyone who profanes it shall certainly be put to death, for anyone who does work on it, that being shall be cut off from among his people. 15 ‘Six days work is done, and on the seventh is a Sabbath of rest, set-apart to Yehovah. Everyone doing work on the Sabbath day shall certainly be put to death. 16 ‘And the children of Yisrael shall guard the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as an everlasting covenant. 17 ‘Between Me and the children of Yisrael it is a sign forever. For in six days Yehovah made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.’ ” 18 And when He had ended speaking with him on Mount Sinai, He gave Mosheh two tablets of the Witness, tablets of stone, written with the finger of Elohim. (Exodus 31:13-18)

13 “And you, speak to the children of Yisrael, saying, ‘My Sabbaths you are to guard, by all means, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, to know that I, Yehovah, am setting you apart. (Exodus 31:13)

19 ‘I am Yehovah your Elohim. Walk in My laws, and guard My right-rulings, and do them. 20 ‘And set apart My Sabbaths, and they shall be a sign between Me and you, to know that I am Yehovah your Elohim.’ (Ezekiel 20:19-20)

The 4th Commandment is the one part of the law most will not keep. It includes the weekly Sabbath and the Annual Holy Days as listed in Leviticus 23 and it also includes the Sabbatical years as told to us in Leviticus 25.

Before I move on we must point out that the night before Passover in the year Yehshua was to be killed, He had a meal (His last Supper) with His disciples and told them that this wine represented His blood and that the bread represented His flesh. All the ingredients used to make a covenant; a Suzerain-Vassal Treaty.

27 And He took the cup and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink all of it. 28 For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. (Matthew 26:27-28)

19 And He took bread and gave thanks, and He broke it and gave it to them, saying, This is My body which is given for you, this do in remembrance of Me. 20 In the same way He took the cup, after having dined, saying, This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is being poured out for you. (Luke 22:19-20)

His body was not broken until that next day and His blood was spilled out on the ground in the exact same way the animal’s blood runs on the ground in a covenant treaty. This happened at the exact same time when the Passover Lambs were killed at 3 P.M. on the 14th of Aviv and their blood spilled on the ground each year renewing the covenant.The covenant that He was renewing was the same one from Mount Sinai, which He spoke to the Israelites. The same one which on the day of His Ascension on that Sunday Morning began the process of counting

The covenant that He was renewing was the same one from Mount Sinai, which He spoke to the Israelites. The same one which on the day of His Ascension on that Sunday Morning began the process of counting the 7 weeks of Sabbaths; the 50 days until Pentecost, the time of swearing our oaths renewed again that we will keep the Torah, only now in our hearts. The Feast of Oaths when we seven ourselves to Yehovah again, as we are renewing our vows each year at Shavuot, also called Pentecost.

And like a bride that has taken on the name of her husband, we are told not to take the name of Yehovah in vain. That is, we do not become His Bride and drag His name back down to the bog of idolatry we have come out of to renew our vows to keep those same laws spoken at Sinai that Yehshua said were to the two greatest commandments. To love Yehovah which are the first four and to love your fellow man which are the last six.

Yehshua Himself told us;

15 If you love Me, keep My commandments.
21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves Me. And he who loves Me shall be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will reveal Myself to him. (John 14:15, 21)

Having now examined this word “weeks” and learning that it means the “Feast of Weeks” also called “Shavuot”; and having learned that this is a very special time when we gave an oath to Guard His Commandments in order to remain in His Blessings, let us now begin to understand what is being said in this prophecy. Keep in mind as we go forward that this has a great deal to do with having broken the oath and very little to do with the coming of the Messiah.

“Seventy weeks are decreed for your people”

Seventy Shavuot’s are decreed for you people. A Shavuot is 49 days. Seventy Forty-nines are decreed for you people.

70 X 49 = 3430
Now when we say a “year is as a day” as we are shown in Ezekiel, we then have 3430 years to deal with and not the 490 years that most try to rationalize. A Jubilee cycle is also 49 years in length of time in the same way the Feast of Weeks is.

3430 years can also be understood to be 70 Jubilee cycles.
