Patterns, Shadows and Promises

Patterns, Shadows and Promises

… who serve the copy and shadow of the heavenly things, as Moses was divinely instructed when he was about to make the tabernacle. For He said, “See that you make all things according to the pattern shown you on the mountain.”
6 But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises.

Hebrews 8:5-6

Passover * Unleavened Bread * First Fruits * Pentecost * Trumpets * Atonement *Tabernacles * 8th Day

Romans 5:11 
And not only so, but we also joy in God 
through our Lord Jesus Christ, 
by whom we have now received the atonement.

The earth, O Lord, is full of thy mercy: 
teach me thy statutes.

Biblical festivals:  The seven-day Feast of Tabernacles, or Sukkot  (Lev. 23:33-44).
Commentators agree that Sukkot ultimately points to the Millennial Kingdom, when the Lord will literally dwell, or “tabernacle,” among men.  
• Sukkot is called the Feast of Ingathering (Ex. 34:22). The Rapture is a gathering of believers to the Lord (2 Thess. 2:1)
• Sukkot is the final festival of the harvest season. Thus, the shofar blast announcing Sukkot is the “last trump” (1 Cor. 15:52).
• Sukkot is the name of the place the Israelites first camped after departing Egypt (Ex. 12:37). The departure from Egypt is a type of the Rapture.
• Sukkot is one of two harvest festivals that occur on the full moon (the other is Passover). Since the moon is said to symbolize the Church, the full moon may point to its “fullness” (Rom. 11:25). Additionally, Scripture links the full moon to the return of the goodman of the house, a typological picture of Jesus returning to settle accounts at the end of the age (Prov. 7:19, 20).
• Solomon, a type of Christ, dedicated the Temple, a type of the body of Christ, to the Lord on Sukkot. When the 120 priests sounded their trumpets, the glory of the Lord filled the house (2 Chron. 5).
• Grapes and apples are harvested in the autumn, around Sukkot. In Song 2 the passages depicting the Shulammite maid, a type of the Church, in the presence of her beloved shepherd, a type of Christ, mention apples and grapes (vv. 3-5, 13).
• The Gentile Ruth, a type of the Church, married the Jewish redeemer Boaz, a type of Christ, after “all” the grain was harvested (Ruth 2:21, 23). Thus the typological wedding of Ruth and Boaz may have occurred around Sukkot (Ruth 2:21, 23; Deut. 16:13).
• Sukkot is when the last grain is brought into the barns, grapes are crushed, and figs and olives are harvested (Deut 16:13). In Scripture, grain represents the Church, grapes represent nonbelievers, and figs and olives are symbolic of Israel (Matt. 3:12; 13:24-30; Rev. 14:18-20; 19:15; Matt. 24:32-34; Jer. 24:1, 2; Rom. 11:17-25; Jer. 11:16).

Passover * Unleavened Bread * First Fruits * Pentecost * Trumpets * Atonement *Tabernacles * 8th Day

The Appointed Patterns - Part I - The Feasts
The Appointed Patterns - Part II - The Harvests
When we understand what the patterns are a shadow of, everything comes into much clearer focus. A shadow is always connected to a larger, more distinct body. When we don't understand an aspect of the shadow, we should not discard the pattern, but instead cross-compare with the pattern and search for footnotes that go with the pattern. Daniel –   

1 Corinthians 3:16
Do you not know that you yourselves are God’s temple, and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?

Revelation 21:3
And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.

If I hadn’t believed that I would see
Adonai’s goodness in the land of the living, . . .
Put your hope in Adonai, be strong,
and let your heart take courage!
Yes, put your hope in Adonai!

Psalm 27:13-14 

This blog discusses some festival elements as well:

Living Water - John 7:37

On the last day, that great day of the feast, 
Jesus stood and cried out, saying,
“If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.

The First Hanukkah - It was actually a Sukkot celebration.

THE BIBLE TEACHES that when Jesus returns it will be like the days of Noah:
“As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man” (Matt. 24:37-39).

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
1 Peter 5:8-9
