The Feast of Tabernacles pictures the Millennium, the time of abundance, the great harvest time. Everyone wants that. Everyone wants to be in YaH's Kingdom. So it is not surprising that the Feast of Tabernacles is the chief pilgrimage Feast of the three Feasts for many people.
Look forward to New Jerusalem. Through the sacrifice of the Messiah and His blood, putting sin out of our lives, obeying YaH, receiving His Spirit and overcoming, pictured by Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread, and Pentecost. This requires work. No great fall harvest is reaped without work. The carnal-minded person wants the benefits of YaH's Kingdom (Tabernacles) without going through the work to obtain it (Passover Feast).
It takes YaHVaH's work in us, to be a living sacrifice, Romans 12:1-2, properly keeping Passover. It takes work to put sin out of our lives that so easily besets us, truly being Unleavened Believers. It takes work to be spiritually minded. The Pure Spirit is given only as we obey Him, Acts 5:32, those who keep the true Pentecost.
Several have said, why put a burden upon YaHVaH people? Man's burdens are heavy, but the Messiah's burdens are light. Messiah said that whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it. Those who give up their lives in service and obedience to YaHVaH, seeking Him, shall save their lives.
The day of wrath is soon coming. Will we be spared as the Israelites were in Egypt, when the death angel passed at midnight? Is the blood of the Lamb sprinkled on our doorposts? Read Isaiah 26:20-21 and 31:5. Then decide for yourself what it will be: Will you keep only the High Days and not all of His Feast Days? Or, will you instead keep all of High Days and Feast Days, including the three annual Pilgrimage Feasts?
PREPARING FOR PASSOVER
While it is very important that we get the leaven out of our borders Exodus 12, 1 Corinthians 5, I believe it is possible to neglect the spiritual application if we become overloaded by the physical preparations for the Feast. While at the Passover pilgrimage we can work at becoming more and more unleavened in a material sense as well as a spiritual sense.
We need YaHosha's perfect offering for our sins. No matter how hard we try to become perfect, we may fall short of it. Still, the symbolism of attempting to get leaven out is quite clear.

Belief in three (instead of two) resurrections is virtually unheard of in theology. However, history records that some Sabbatarians in the Second Century believed in three resurrections:
These groups, referred to by Epiphanius (Williams, 1987) as Nazarenes or Elkasaites, professed the following beliefs: They proclaimed Messiah, Son of YaHVaH as prophet-Messiah; insisted upon the validity of the Torah & laws of ritual purity; spoke of three resurrections; professed a millennarian eschatology; looked forward to the restoration of the Temple; observed the feast of Sukkoth (Tabernacles), celebrated Passover, and observed the Sabbath; affirmed the primacy of James, brother of Messiah over Peter in the leadership of the church; and preferred the designation Nazarene over Christian (Early Judaism by Eric Meyers).
If it is indeed true that the Nazarenes of the Second Century are our spiritual ancestors, it would appear from the above quote that they believed in three resurrections. One can assume that they believed in three resurrections in similitude to what the old WCG taught
(viz., 1st resurrection of the saints; 2nd resurrection of the majority of mankind who were not called to salvation in this life; 3rd resurrection to eternal death of the wicked).
Alternatively, they may have meant that YaHOSHA’s resurrection was the first, the resurrection of the saints was the second, and the resurrection at the end of the millennium was the third. More investigation is required in this regard to ascertain with certainty exactly what they believed pertaining to the third resurrection.
There were three Old Testament resurrections (I Kings 17:17-24; II Kings 4:32-37, 13:20-21); three by YaHOSHA (Luke 7:11-17; Mark 5:35-43; John 11); and three after YaHOSHA’s death (Matthew 27:51-53; Acts 9:36-41, 20:9-10). Bullinger, in "Number in Scripture" goes so far as to state: three is the number of resurrection (page 111) because YaHOSHA rose the third day; He was perfected on the third day; He was crucified at the third hour or 9 AM; for three hours darkness shrouded the region at the time of His crucifixion (of the six hour period); He raised three persons from the dead; and it was on the Third day that the earth was caused to rise up out of the waters in Genesis.

Are Passover and Pentecost Minor Feasts?
Is one of the Three Pilgrimage Feasts more important than all the others? This is what some would have us believe. They say, "The Feast of Tabernacles is the only time when YaHVaH's people should all be together." Is this true? Messiah example, Luke 2:41-43, and that of the New Testament Church, Acts 2:1 show that Passover and Unleavened Bread and Pentecost were equally as important as the Feast of Tabernacles, John 7:2, 10, 37.
Why do some people celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles as a pilgrimage Feast, and not Passover and Pentecost? Tradition!

THE RESURRECTION OF YaHOSHA ha MASHIACH
Luke 2:34 “And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Miriam His mother, ‘Behold,this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in The Chosen Land; and for
A SIGN WHICH SHALL BE SPOKEN AGAINST.”
Matthew 12:40 “..no sign shall be given to it but the sign of the prophet Jonas: For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” Counting from the end of Aviv (Nisan) 14 to the end of Aviv 17, Aviv 14 to 17 were those three nights and three days.
Although there are formulas to calculate the Mashiach death, burial and resurrection, here is a plain formula: YaHOSHA was impaled on Aviv 14
and was buried in the tomb, he was dead three days and three nights, and he arose three days later on Aviv 17, Matthew 12:38-40 and 28:1. Savior’s death was the end of Aviv 14, His resurrection Aviv 17.
Each year, Aviv 14 and 17 fall on certain days of the month, not on certain days of the week. YaHOSHA rose from the grave giving eternal life to those who will receive Him.
The sequence also involves the "buying of spices", "preparing and bringing of spices". The spices to anoint Mashiach were bought on the sixth day. They
brought the spices to the tomb after YAHOSHA the Son arose, on the first day of theweek, Sunday. Go to WWW.GiveShare.Org
for full and complete details. Remember to mentally change any pagan names to YHVH on that site (such as J.C.).
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth YaHOSHA Mashiach and shalt believe in thine heart that YaHVaH hath raised Him from the DEAD, thou shalt be saved."
Romans 10:9 The Son of YaHVaH really WAS dead.
1 Cor 15 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel...for I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that YaHOSHA died for our sins according to the scriptures (found in Matthew 12:38): And that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the scriptures.
His burial and resurrection: That type is found here in 1 Cor 10:2 “...All were immersed unto Moshe in the cloud and in the sea...and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed, and that Rock was Messiah.” That is one of the many simple proofs that YHVH of the so-called “Old Testament” is YHVH of the so-called NT, newer Testament or new Testament of YaHVaH.
A clue about the timing is Yochanon 11:9, "Are there not twelve hours in the day?"
Luke 2:34; Jonah 1:17; Dan 9:26; Hosea 6:2; Acts 9:9. Think of whether Shaul was three days without sight or like everything else today, is this also allegorical and was it only a day and a half?
Prophecy: There isn't any scripture that foretells that His death burial or resurrection would change His Separated rest day, the Seventh Day Shabbat (Sabbath) to Sunday. But actually some TRIED to change YHVH’s set-apart day! Yereboam attempted to change the Feastday. 1 Kings 12:32a "And Yereboam ordained a feast in the eight month, on the fifteenth day of the month, LIKE UNTO THE FEAST THAT IS IN YAHUDAH
and he offered upon the altar”. Succoth is in the seventh.
Danieyl (Daniel) 7:25: “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws...” Ha Satan uses world leaders to cast error into teaching.
Next was the official change of the Fourth Commandment by the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) from Sabbath to Sunday, the venerable day of the sun.
YaHVah beckons us to His Feasts in Vayyiqra/Lev 23.
If you have never celebrated the Feast of Tabernacles, you are in for a real blessing and eye-opener! See ZecharYah 14, too. The Feasts of YaHVah are for our learning, enjoyment, and for being equipped to reign with Him in His
The main current dilemna is man fixes a "day" rather than the proper "date" for Messiah's resurrection. They erroneously say that Easter Sunday does away with the Sabbath and the Torah of YaHVaH.
If we properly understand that Messiah died on the tree at Calvary and was buried in the tomb three nights and three days (Matthew 12:38-40) from Aviv 14 to 17 then you know the resurrection date was not a day of the week (S-day) but a date of the month, Aviv 17. "Easter Sunday" would only be Aviv 15, or for some Aviv 16 at the latest, not AVIV 17 of the Scriptural Month. Did Messiah come to do away with the Torah, or to magnify the Torah?

SECOND CHANCE Feast of Unleavened Bread
In certain situations there is a second Passover. Study Scriptures in Numbers 9:5-14. Then 2 Chronicles 30.
This second chance is for Passover and Unleavened Bread Feast only and does not apply to all the other Feast days. YaHOSHA is the Messiah, the merciful Mighty One of the Second Chance. Remember Larnelle Harris with "Second Chance"? Also hear "The Other Woman".

Polluted bread for Passover **
Feast of Unleavened Bread is also called Passover:
Ezekiel 45:21 "In the first month, in the fourteenth day of the month, ye shall have the Passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened bread shall be eaten."
Matthew 26:17 "Now the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Messiah, saying unto Him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the Passover?"
1 Corinthians 5:7-8 "Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Messiah our Passover is a slaughter-offering for us: Therefore let us keep the Feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth."
Colossians 2:16-17 refers to the Feast Days as "a shadow of the things to come." "Let no man judge you in the keeping of the New Moons, Feasts and Sabbath which ARE a shadow of things to come, but the body of Messiah".
Mankind does not like to come to grips with his own sin.
This humorous story illustrates the point, from WWW.Giveshare.Org: (see Articles)
When a rural preacher returned after visiting a distant city, a parishioner met him at the train station. "How are things out our way, John?" the preacher asked. "Sad, sir. A cyclone came and wiped out my house." "Dear, dear," cried the preacher. "Well, I'm not surprised. You remember I warned you about the way you had been living? Punishment for sin is inevitable. Disasters never come without due cause." "It also destroyed your house, sir," said John. "It did?" The preacher was horrified. "Ah, me, the ways of the YaHVaH are past human understanding."
Sin applies to each and every one of us, even that proud Internet preacher with virtual congregations.
