FULFILLED PROPHECIES ON FEAST DAYS P 2

FULFILLED PROPHECIES ON FEAST DAYS. PART 2 OF 2
From Grant Jeffries Book. Armageddon Apointment with Destiny. Pages 65-98 (Selective)


SIGNS OF THE END OF THE AGE (NOT THE WORLD) THE WORLD GOES ON FOREVER.

GENESIS 1:5,14
5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:(ISRAELS HOLY DAYS AND SABBATH STARTS AT 6PM) And for SIGNS (PROPHECY SIGNS TO HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE, OUR DAY)

COLOSSIANS 2:16-17
16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

THE SIXTH DAY OF SIVAN (MAY/JUNE)
THE FEAST OF PENTICOST
(A NEW REVELATION OF GODS WILL)

LEVITICUS 23:15-16,21
15 And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete:
16 Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto the LORD.
21 And ye shall proclaim on the selfsame day, that it may be an holy convocation unto you: ye shall do no servile work therein: it shall be a statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.

The fourth of the seven required feasts of Israel took place exactly fifty days after the feast of the Firstfruits-hence the name Pentecost, "Penta" meaning fifty. This feast is very significant to Christians as well as to Jews. Pentecost, or Shavuot to the Jews, celebrated the end of the grain harvest, the summer harvest. It is also known as the Zeman Matan Tortenu, the "giving of the Law" to Israel. The
Feast of Pentecost is the second of the three great feasts that all male Jews were required to celebrate at the Temple in Jerusalem every year.

Two Major events took place on the sixth day of Sivan; each one introduced a special time of spiritual stewardship to a specific revelation of God: The Giving of the Ten Commandments and the giving of the Holy Spirit.


1-The Giving of the Ten Commandments.
EXODUS 19:11
11 And be ready against the third day: for the third day the LORD will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai.

LEVITICUS 23:22
22 And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not make clean riddance of the corners of thy field when thou reapest, neither shalt thou gather any gleaning of thy harvest: thou shalt leave them unto the poor, and to the stranger: I am the LORD your God.

RUTH 1;16
16 And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:

MATTHEW 1:5-6
5 And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;
6 And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias.

2-The Giving of the Holy Spirit.
ACTS 1:8
8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

ACTS 2:1,4
1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

A Jewish Writer says Enoch was raptured to heaven on this very day of Pentecost, the sixth day of Sivan.
GENESIS 5:24
24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

THE SEVENTEENTH DAY OF TAMMUZ (JUNE/JULY)
THE FAST OF MOURNING


ZECHARIAH 8:19
19 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be to the house of Judah joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts; therefore love the truth and peace.

Each of the four fasts mentioned by the prophet Zechariah were in commemoration of some tragic event connected with the destruction of the Temple, Jerusalem and the independence of Israel when the Babylonian army conquered Israel successively from 606 B.C to 587 B.C. Zechariah promised that, once the Messiah has come to set up his Kingdom, these four tragic fasts will be transformed into feasts of joy and gladness to celebrate the eternal peace and blessings of the Messianic Age. The fast of the fourth - month Tammuz, occured on the seventeenth day of Tammuz (JULY). The fast of
the fifth month - Av occurred on the nineth day of Av (AUGUST).

The next historically important anniversary is not a feast day but rather is a day of fasting and mourning, Nevertheless, this day has been significant in God's dealing with Israel. It is the seventeenth day of Tammuz and occures in the month of July on Our calendar.

The seventeenth day of Tammuz begins a three-wek period of national mourning leading up to the fast of Tisha Be-av, the ninth day of Anv. Three spiritually significant events have happened on the seventeenth day of Tammuz and each involved the breaking of a spiritual symbol which signified that God's disfavor had been incurred as a result of national disobedience. The mourning followed due to the people's consciousness of their sin and their recognition that God's punishment would follow.

1-Moses breaks the Tablets of the Law.
EXODUS 19:18
18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.

EXODUS 32:19,26
19 And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses' anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount.
26 Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD'S side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him.

2-The Babylonians Broke through the Walls of Jerusalem and Caused the Daily Sacrifice to cease.

3-The Roman Army Forces the Cessation of the Daily Sacrifice.

THE NINTH DAY OF AV
A FAST OF MOURNING

ZECHARIAH 7:5
5 Speak unto all the people of the land, and to the priests, saying, When ye fasted and mourned in the fifth and seventh month, even those seventy years, did ye at all fast unto me, even to me?

This day of fasting, known as Tisha Be-av, is a day of mourning and rememberence of Israel's loss of their sacred Temple. It is one of the most historically significant anniversaries in the life of their nation and is commemorated by Jews throughout the world as the tragic day when God withdrew His Presence and they wept as their precious Temple burned to the ground.

Throughout Israel's history, the ninth of Av (in our August) has witnessed eight of the greatest disasters in their nations history.

In the future will be a Joyous feast.
ZECHARIAH 8:19
19 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be to the house of Judah joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts; therefore love the truth and peace.

1-The twelve spies Return with their report.
NUMBERS 14:1-10,39
1 And all the congregation lifted up their voice, and cried; and the people wept that night.
2 And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, Would God that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would God we had died in this wilderness!
3 And wherefore hath the LORD brought us unto this land, to fall by the sword, that our wives and our children should be a prey? were it not better for us to return into Egypt?
4 And they said one to another, Let us make a captain, and let us return into Egypt.
5 Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel.
6 And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of them that searched the land, rent their clothes:
7 And they spake unto all the company of the children of Israel, saying, The land, which we passed through to search it, is an exceeding good land.
8 If the LORD delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey.
9 Only rebel not ye against the LORD, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the LORD is with us: fear them not.
10 But all the congregation bade stone them with stones. And the glory of the LORD appeared in the tabernacle of the congregation before all the children of Israel.
39 And Moses told these sayings unto all the children of Israel: and the people mourned greatly.

Thus, the ninth of Av became a fast of mourning as Israel wept over their lack of obedience to God and the tragedies which would follow so many times during the next thirty-five centuries.

2-The Destruction of Solomon's Temple by the Babylonians.
JEREMIAH 52:5-14
5 So the city was besieged unto the eleventh year of king Zedekiah.
6 And in the fourth month, in the ninth day of the month, the famine was sore in the city, so that there was no bread for the people of the land.
7 Then the city was broken up, and all the men of war fled, and went forth out of the city by night by the way of the gate between the two walls, which was by the king’s garden; (now the Chaldeans were by the city round about:) and they went by the way of the plain.
8 But the army of the Chaldeans pursued after the king, and overtook Zedekiah in the plains of Jericho; and all his army was scattered from him.
9 Then they took the king, and carried him up unto the king of Babylon to Riblah in the land of Hamath; where he gave judgment upon him.
10 And the king of Babylon slew the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes: he slew also all the princes of Judah in Riblah.
11 Then he put out the eyes of Zedekiah; and the king of Babylon bound him in chains, and carried him to Babylon, and put him in prison till the day of his death.
12 Now in the fifth month, in the tenth day of the month, which was the nineteenth year of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, came Nebuzaradan, captain of the guard, which served the king of Babylon, into Jerusalem,
13 And burned the house of the LORD, and the king’s house; and all the houses of Jerusalem, and all the houses of the great men, burned he with fire:
14 And all the army of the Chaldeans, that were with the captain of the guard, brake down all the walls of Jerusalem round about.

LAMENTATIONS 2:7
7 The Lord hath cast off his altar, he hath abhorred his sanctuary, he hath given up into the hand of the enemy the walls of her palaces; they have made a noise in the house of the LORD, as in the day of a solemn feast.

ZECHARIAH 8:9
9 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Let your hands be strong, ye that hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets, which were in the day that the foundation of the house of the LORD of hosts was laid, that the temple might be built.

3-The Destruction of the Second Temple by the Romans.
LUKE 19:41-44
41 And when he (JESUS) was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,
42 Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.
43 For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,
44 And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.

DANIEL 9:26
26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

4-The Romans plowed Jerusalem and the temple.
MICAH 3:12 1 YR later this happens
12 Therefore shall Zion for your sake be plowed as a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountain of the house as the high places of the forest.

5-The destruction of Bar Kochba's Army.
MATTHEW 24:23-24
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

Amoung those false prophets was a dynamic Jewish leader named Simon Bar Kochba. As Jesus predicted, many people, including the famous Jewish scholar Rabbi Akiba, acclaimed him as the "Messiah" Jesus prophesied before his rejection.
JOHN 5:43
43 I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.

In the future sometime Israel will once again be decieved into believing a false Messiah, the future EU DICTATOR will be that final false Messiah, before the true Messiah Jesus returns to Earth Bodily.

6-England Expelled all Jews in A.D 1290 on Av.

7-Spain Expelled all Jews in A.D 1492 on Av.

8-Russia Mobbilized for World War one and Launched Persecutions against the Jews.


The odds that all eight events would occur by chance on the ninth of Av, rather than by God's design, is equal to: 1X365X365X365X365X365X365X365X365 = one chance in 863,078,009,300,000,000 or 1 chance in 863 Zillion.

THE FIRST DAY OF TISHRI (SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER)(ROSH HA'SHANAH)
FEAST OF TRUMPETS

LEVITICUS 23:23:24
23 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
24 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.

The feast of Trumpets occurs on the first of Tishri, in the fall (September/October). As soon as the new moon was sighted in eastern Israel, the watcherswould trumpet the signal from hill to hill untill the signal finally reached the Temple. Then the High Priest would blow the ram's horn (The Shofar) and announce the beginning of the New Year.

Rosh Ha'shanah the ancient New Year's day for Israel as well as most middle east cultures, is celebrated on the first day of Tishri, Jewish tradition reveals its four-fold meaning:
1-NEW YEAR'S DAY
2-THE DAY OF REMEMBERENCE.
3-THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT
4-THE DAY OF BLOWING THE SHOFAR (RAM'S HORN)

On this day the synagogue lesson of Isaiah, Chapters 60 and 61, teaches of that long-awaited day when the Lord is revealed as King and he will be accepted as the ruler of the world. Two spiritually important events have already occured on the anniversary of the Feast of Trumpets. One still remains to be fulfilled in our future.

This is the future date I believe the 7 YR treaty of Daniel 9:27 will be signed on. The Beginning of the Tribulation of hell on Earth.

1-Joshua Brought the First Offering to the New Altar.
EZRA 3:1-6
1 And when the seventh month was come, and the children of Israel were in the cities, the people gathered themselves together as one man to Jerusalem.
2 Then stood up Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and his brethren the priests, and Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and his brethren, and builded the altar of the God of Israel, to offer burnt offerings thereon, as it is written in the law of Moses the man of God.
3 And they set the altar upon his bases; for fear was upon them because of the people of those countries: and they offered burnt offerings thereon unto the LORD, even burnt offerings morning and evening.
4 They kept also the feast of tabernacles, as it is written, and offered the daily burnt offerings by number, according to the custom, as the duty of every day required;
5 And afterward offered the continual burnt offering, both of the new moons, and of all the set feasts of the LORD that were consecrated, and of every one that willingly offered a freewill offering unto the LORD.
6 From the first day of the seventh month began they to offer burnt offerings unto the LORD. But the foundation of the temple of the LORD was not yet laid.

2-Ezra Read the Law to the Returned Exiles.
Nehemiah 8:2-3
2 And Ezra the priest brought the law before the congregation both of men and women, and all that could hear with understanding, upon the first day of the seventh month.
3 And he read therein before the street that was before the water gate from the morning until midday, before the men and the women, and those that could understand; and the ears of all the people were attentive unto the book of the law.

FUTURE
3-The possible Day for the Battle of Armageddon.

JOEL 1:14-15
14 Sanctify ye a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of the LORD your God, and cry unto the LORD,
15 Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come.

JOEL 2:1-2
1 Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;
2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.

JEREMIAH 4:5-6
5 Declare ye in Judah, and publish in Jerusalem; and say, Blow ye the trumpet in the land: cry, gather together, and say, Assemble yourselves, and let us go into the defenced cities.
6 Set up the standard toward Zion: retire, stay not: for I will bring evil from the north, and a great destruction.

THE TENTH DAY OF TISHRI (SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER)
THE DAY OF ATONEMENT - YOM KIPPUR

LEVITICUS 23:26-32
26 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
27 Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
28 And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God.
29 For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people.
30 And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people.
31 Ye shall do no manner of work: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
32 It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath.

Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement is the Holiest day in the Jewish Calendar. It is the day when all Israel mourns for their sins. On this day, the tenth day of Tishri, and only on this day the High Priest would enter the Most Holy of Holies in the Temple, the place where the Shekinah glory dwelt.

Two historically important events have already occurred on the tenth day of Tishri, and one future event will possibly transpire on this date.

HEBREWS 9:12,14
12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

LEVITICUS 25:9-10
9 Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land.
10 And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.

2 CORINTHIANS 5:21
21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

1-Aaron, the High Priest made Atonement for Israel for the First Time in the Wilderness.
LEVITICUS 16:1-28
1 And the LORD spake unto Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they offered before the LORD, and died;
2 And the LORD said unto Moses, Speak unto Aaron thy brother, that he come not at all times into the holy place within the vail before the mercy seat, which is upon the ark; that he die not: for I will appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat.
3 Thus shall Aaron come into the holy place: with a young bullock for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering.
4 He shall put on the holy linen coat, and he shall have the linen breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with a linen girdle, and with the linen mitre shall he be attired: these are holy garments; therefore shall he wash his flesh in water, and so put them on.
5 And he shall take of the congregation of the children of Israel two kids of the goats for a sin offering, and one ram for a burnt offering.
6 And Aaron shall offer his bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and make an atonement for himself, and for his house.
7 And he shall take the two goats, and present them before the LORD at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
8 And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the LORD, and the other lot for the scapegoat.
9 And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the LORD'S lot fell, and offer him for a sin offering.
10 But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the LORD, to make an atonement with him, and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness.
11 And Aaron shall bring the bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and shall make an atonement for himself, and for his house, and shall kill the bullock of the sin offering which is for himself:
12 And he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from off the altar before the LORD, and his hands full of sweet incense beaten small, and bring it within the vail:
13 And he shall put the incense upon the fire before the LORD, that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the testimony, that he die not:
14 And he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it with his finger upon the mercy seat eastward; and before the mercy seat shall he sprinkle of the blood with his finger seven times.
15 Then shall he kill the goat of the sin offering, that is for the people, and bring his blood within the vail, and do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the mercy seat, and before the mercy seat:
16 And he shall make an atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel, and because of their transgressions in all their sins: and so shall he do for the tabernacle of the congregation, that remaineth among them in the midst of their uncleanness.
17 And there shall be no man in the tabernacle of the congregation when he goeth in to make an atonement in the holy place, until he come out, and have made an atonement for himself, and for his household, and for all the congregation of Israel.
18 And he shall go out unto the altar that is before the LORD, and make an atonement for it; and shall take of the blood of the bullock, and of the blood of the goat, and put it upon the horns of the altar round about.
19 And he shall sprinkle of the blood upon it with his finger seven times, and cleanse it, and hallow it from the uncleanness of the children of Israel.
20 And when he hath made an end of reconciling the holy place, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar, he shall bring the live goat:
21 And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness:
22 And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness.
23 And Aaron shall come into the tabernacle of the congregation, and shall put off the linen garments, which he put on when he went into the holy place, and shall leave them there:
24 And he shall wash his flesh with water in the holy place, and put on his garments, and come forth, and offer his burnt offering, and the burnt offering of the people, and make an atonement for himself, and for the people.
25 And the fat of the sin offering shall he burn upon the altar.
26 And he that let go the goat for the scapegoat shall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward come into the camp.
27 And the bullock for the sin offering, and the goat for the sin offering, whose blood was brought in to make atonement in the holy place, shall one carry forth without the camp; and they shall burn in the fire their skins, and their flesh, and their dung.
28 And he that burneth them shall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward he shall come into the camp.

2-Israel saved from Annihilation in 1973 Yom Kippur War.

FUTURE
3-Israel will mourn when they see their Messiah whom they Pierced.

ZECHARIAH 12:10-11
10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
11 In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.

EZEKIEL 36:26,33
26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
33 Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be builded.

ROMANS 9:26
26 And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.

THE FIFTEENTH DAY OF TISHRI (SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER)
THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES - SUKKOT

LEVITICUS 23:33-34,42-43
33 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
34 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD.
42 Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths:
43 That your generations may know that I made the children of Israel to dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

The feast of Tabernacles was the third of the three annuak feasts which all Jewish men were required to attend in Jerusalem each year. This feast known as Sukkot was instituted by God in the wilderness of Sinai. It begins on the fifteenth day of Tishri, five days after the solemn Day of Atonement. It is sometimes referred to as the great Harvest Home which occurred at the end of the fruit harvest (September-October).

There are two notable historical anniversary events connected with The Feast of Tabernacles and one possible future fulfillment.

1-The Dedication of Solomom's Temple on the feast of Tabernacles.
2 CHRONICLES 5:2-3,12-14
2 Then Solomon assembled the elders of Israel, and all the heads of the tribes, the chief of the fathers of the children of Israel, unto Jerusalem, to bring up the ark of the covenant of the LORD out of the city of David, which is Zion.
3 Wherefore all the men of Israel assembled themselves unto the king in the feast which was in the seventh month.
12 Also the Levites which were the singers, all of them of Asaph, of Heman, of Jeduthun, with their sons and their brethren, being arrayed in white linen, having cymbals and psalteries and harps, stood at the east end of the altar, and with them an hundred and twenty priests sounding with trumpets:)
13 It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD;
14 So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of God.

1 KINGS 8:1-2
1 Then Solomon assembled the elders of Israel, and all the heads of the tribes, the chief of the fathers of the children of Israel, unto king Solomon in Jerusalem, that they might bring up the ark of the covenant of the LORD out of the city of David, which is Zion.
2 And all the men of Israel assembled themselves unto king Solomon at the feast in the month Ethanim, which is the seventh month

2-The Possible Birthday of Jesus Christ.
JOHN 1:14
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

FUTURE
3-The Beginning of the Kingdom Age-The Millenium.

ZECHARIAH 14:9,16
9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.
16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.

THE TWENTY-FOURTH DAY OF CHISLEU (NOVEMBER/DECEMBER)
THE FEAST OF HANUKKAH


Chisleu, the ninth month in the Jewish calendar, corresponds to our months of november-December. On the twenty-fifth day of the month, the Jews celebrate the Feast of Hanukkah-which was not one of the appointed feasts but which commemorates the cleansing and rededication of the Second Temple in 165 B.C.

On the day before the Feast of Hanukkah, on the twenty-fourth day of chisleu, israel has witnessed four major historical events.

1-The foundation of the Second Temple - 520 B.C.
HAGGAI 2:18-19
18 Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the LORD’S temple was laid, consider it.
19 Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you.

2-The Abolition of the Temple Sacrifice - 168 B.C.

3-The Recapture of the Temple and Cleansing of the Sanctuary - 165 B.C.

4-Jerusalem Freed from Turkish Rule - A.D 1917.
