Well, you made it! This is the final chapter entitled God’s 7 Feasts – The Appointed Times. And this is where we’re going to learn (finally!) what the phrase “no man knows the DAY or HOUR” is REALLY about! This is one of the most misunderstood Bible verses in today’s church world. But I promise you, if you’ll read this part, you’ll know the full truth, the wonderful truth, behind these precious words!
Remember friend, it’s all about a game! God created the Game of Life! And make no mistake about it … God has laid out the timing scenario for the game from the very beginning, including when Jesus will return! We’ve learned in this book the game was/is set to be played for 6,000 solar years, followed by a bonus period of 1,000 solar years. Then God divided that 7,000 year total timeframe into seven equal periods of 1,000 years each.
We learned God hid this time clock for the game in the 7 Day Creation story, by utilizing 6 days to create the world followed by a 7th day of rest. Each Creation day foretold of a future 1,000 year period. And each Creation Day contained a prophecy foretelling the greatest event to occur in its future millennium.
In addition to that, we learned God prophesied Jesus Christ would DIE for us (on the cross) during Earth’s 4,000 year, and he will RETURN for us during earth’s 6,000 year. On our Gregorian calendar today these years are AD 28 for his death and AD 2028 for his return.
Then after Christ’s return the 1,000 year bonus period will begin on Earth in fulfillment of the 7th Day Sabbath in the Creation story. The resurrected saints will live and reign with Christ for 1,000 years. It will be a time of holiness and rest on earth, just as God spoke about the Sabbath Day in the Creation story. So that’s it! That’s the timing scenario for the YEAR COUNT in God’s Game of Life — 7,000 total years (6,000 + 1,000) | Jesus dies year 4,000 and returns year 6,000.
GOD’S SEVEN FEASTS
So what about the phrase “no man knows the DAY or HOUR”? What’s it about? Well, for that we need to turn to God’s 7 Feasts. The word “feast” is from the Hebrew word mo’ed meaning “appointed times” (Leviticus 23:1-4). Did you catch that? God’s 7 Feasts are His appointed times! What’s that mean? It means they’re prophecy!
God’s 7 Feasts contain more information about the game clock in God’s Game of Life. But they have nothing to do with the YEAR count! No, instead, they foretell the VERY DAY during a calendar year when certain things will happen! Specifically, God’s 7 feasts foretell the VERY DAY when the Messiah (Christ Jesus) will accomplish his most important duties, including his death on the cross and his return at the sound of a trumpet!
So let’s look at this … God set up the yearly observance of His 7 Feasts with the Israelites (back in the wilderness) right after they escaped from Egypt. So it was roughly 1300 BC – over a thousand years before Jesus would arrive! These Feasts are written in Leviticus chapter 23. God gave the name of the feast, what it was to be about, and the very day it was to be observed each year based upon a lunar calendar. A lunar calendar means the months were based upon the moon cycle – each month started and ended with the new moon.
God commanded the Israelites to keep these 7 Feasts every year (just like we keep holidays today). In fact, the word “holiday” literally came from these Feasts, for they were also known as the “holy days”, which forms the word “holiday”. But just keep in mind, the Israelites had no clue these Feasts days (appointed times) were actually foretelling the EXACT DAY(S) when Jesus would accomplish his most important tasks. In fact, the very essence of what each feast was about was the very essence of what Jesus had to fulfill on that day! This is wonderful knowledge to understand!
So here are the Feasts in the order they arrive each year …
Feast of Passover
Feast of Unleavened Bread
Feast of First Fruits
Feast of Weeks
Feast of Trumpets
Day of Atonement
Feast of Tabernacles
THE SPRING FEASTS – FULFILLED
The first 3 Feasts occurred in the spring over an 8 day period during the lunar month of Nissan. Passover was on the 14th, Unleavened Bread ran the next 7 days from the 15th to the 21st, and First Fruits occurred during the week of Unleavened Bread on the day after the weekly Sabbath. God declared the month of Nissan as the first month of the year on a religious calendar for the Jews.
The 4th Feast of the year (Feast of Weeks) was to take place 50 days (7 weeks + 1 day) after the Feast of First Fruits. So it arrived late spring, during the 3rd lunar month of the year, the month of Sivan.
THE FALL FEASTS – UNFULFILLED
The last 3 Feasts occurred in the fall, during the 7th lunar month of the year, the month of Tishri. Trumpets occurred on the 1st day of the month, Atonement on the 10th, and Tabernacles ran for 7 days from the 15th to the 21st. These 3 Feasts are known collectively as the fall feasts of the Lord.
So there you go … that’s God’s 7 Feasts along with the VERY DAY they were to be observed each year based on lunar months.
1) JESUS FULFILLS PASSOVER
So here’s what happened … The Jews were keeping these feasts every year for over a thousand years, and here comes Jesus along Earth’s 4,000 year, and he DIES on the CROSS (he’s sacrificed!) on the VERY DAY of the Feast of Passover (the 1st feast of the year). This feast memorialized the day the Israelites had sacrificed their Passover lamb back in Egypt the night of their exodus – Nissan 14th.
So here’s Jesus, and he’s sacrificed on the VERY DAY of the Feast of Passover! He literally became the sacrificial Passover Lamb, fulfilling the Feast of Passover on its VERY DAY! This is the reason Paul wrote:
Alright, so then Jesus’ body was taken off the cross that same day (Nissan 14th), and it was buried in the ground at sundown, because the Jews wanted the bodies off the cross before the High Sabbath of the first day of Unleavened Bread arrived – Nissan 15th.
Christ’s body then remained in the ground for 3 days & 3 nights (Nissan 15 – 16 – 17) in fulfillment of the Jonah prophecy spoken by Christ in Matthew 12:40. So Jesus’ body was in the ground (heart of the earth) all during the days of the Feast of Unleavened Bread! Christ’s sinless body was the unleavened bread that fulfilled the feast!
Ok, so now we know Christ’s death occurred the VERY DAY of the yearly celebrated Feast of Passover (the 1st feast of the year), and we know his burial took place during the VERY DAYS of the yearly celebrated Feast of Unleavened Bread (the 2nd feast of the year). Friend, these are the BIGGEST things Christ had to do for us to save us – his death and burial! So what about his resurrection?
3) JESUS FULFILLS FIRST FRUITS
Well, next came the Feast of First Fruits (the 3rd feast of the year). Remember, it occurs right after the weekly Sabbath day ends during the 7 days of Unleavened Bread. So if you count 3 days and 3 nights from sundown Wednesday (when Christ’s body was buried in the tomb) you come to sundown Saturday, which is the end of the weekly Sabbath! (The weekly Sabbath, the 7th day of the week, runs from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday.)
So right on cue, Jesus resurrected from the grave on the VERY DAY of the Feast of First Fruits! Mary and Martha found the stone rolled away and the tomb empty early that Sunday morning while it was still dark. So here’s the deal friend … Jesus literally became the First Fruits resurrection of the dead on the VERY DAY of the Feast of First Fruits. In other words, he fulfilled the purpose of the feast on its VERY DAY, just like the first 2 feasts! And this is why Paul wrote:
“But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first fruits of them that slept.” (I Corinthians 15:20)
So now you know Jesus fulfilled the spring feasts (the first 3 feasts of the year) — Passover, Unleavened Bread, and First Fruits — on their VERY yearly celebrated DAY(S) Earth’s 4,000 year! The Messiah did his most important work for us (his death, burial, and resurrection) at God’s appointed times, and no one understood it at the time. Mind boggling! But after Christ’s resurrection he began to explain these things to his disciples. So they soon got it!
4) JESUS FULFILLS FEAST OF WEEKS (PENTECOST)
Ok, so next came the Feast of Weeks (the 4th feast of the year). Remember this feast was to be kept 50 days after First Fruits. Well friend, this was the VERY DAY that Jesus sent the comforter, the Holy Ghost! Forty days after his resurrection Jesus ascended back into heaven, and 10 days later he poured out the Holy Ghost on his disciples! The church renamed this day “Pentecost”, but the word “Pentecost” comes from the Greek word “pentekostos” meaning “fifty”. That “50” is for the Feast of Weeks! Jesus sent the Holy Ghost in fulfillment of the Feast of Weeks!
Alright, recapping where we’re at … Jesus fulfilled his most important tasks (death, burial, resurrection, and sending Holy Ghost) on the VERY DAY(S) of God’s first 4 feasts of the year – Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, and Weeks. So knowing this, let me ask you a question … there’s 3 Feasts left, all occurring in the fall during the lunar month of Tishri (the 7th lunar month of the year) … do you think Jesus is going to do something important for us on the VERY DAY(S) of these 3 remaining fall feasts? OF COURSE HE IS!!! We would be foolish to not understand this once presented with it.
JESUS WILL FULFILL FALL FEASTS
So the lasts 3 feasts are Trumpets, Atonement, and Tabernacles. Friend, this is exactly what Christ has left to do for us — return at the sound of a trumpet, officially (priestly) atone for our sins, and then tabernacle with us (meaning live among us).
Let me be clear … these 3 feasts are going to be fulfilled by Jesus Christ on their VERY DAY(S) all during Earth’s 6,000 year, just like Jesus fulfilled the first 4 feasts on their VERY DAY(S) all during Earth’s 4,000 year! The Apostle Paul wrote:
“Let no one judge you in regard to a feast (holy days), or a new moon, or Sabbaths, which are a SHADOW OF THINGS TO COME!” (Colossians 2:16-17)
See, Paul knew the fall feasts still needed to be fulfilled! Pretty cool, huh?
NO MAN KNOWS DAY OR HOUR
So ok, if we know Jesus is returning on the VERY DAY of the Feast of Trumpets (the 5th feast of the year) then what about the phrase “no man knows the DAY or HOUR”? If he’s returning on Trumpets, then how does this make sense?
Friend, it’s this simple … it’s because the Feast of Trumpets is the only Feast day to occur at the start of a lunar month (the 1st day of the month), and this day was not known until 2 witnesses confirmed sighting of the new moon sliver to the Sanhedrin. This could happen at any HOUR of any DAY during the new moon phase which contains 3 days of darkness.
Eventually a Jewish idiom was coined, and the Feast of Trumpets became known as the Feast “no man knows the day or hour”. They would have to “keep watch” for the Day of this Feast to arrive. And so you’ll find Jesus using both these phrases when speaking of his return “no man knows the day or hour” and so “keep watch”.
It’s tragic today the church thinks Jesus’ phrase “no man knows the day or hour” is saying we will have no clue to the time of Christ’s return, when in reality it’s actually revealing the time of his return – Feast of Trumpets!!! Isn’t that shocking? It’s sad how deceived an entire church generation can be!
KNOW WHEN MY RETURN IS NEAR
For a decade now — ever since God gave me this 2028 END prophetic message back in 2008 — mostly what I hear is … “no man knows the day or hour” … “no man knows the day or hour” … “no man knows the day or hour.” They’re like parrots! Then they close their hearts and won’t listen to a single word I say! Their “ears to hear” have been sealed shut by Satan, who has deceived them over this one phrase. It’s heartbreaking!
But friend, listen to me … Jesus WANTS you to know the time of his return! He literally said:
Well alright, so let’s wrap this up. God created the Game of Life. Planet Earth is the playing field, mankind is the players who will win or lose, and the 10LC are the rules. The game is being played by two teams – Jesus’ team & Satan’s team. If you play for Jesus’ team, you will win the game. If you play for Satan’s team, you will lose.
The game was set to be played for 6,000 solar years, and then it will come to an end with Christ’s return. After this, a 1,000 year bonus period will begin with Christ reigning on earth with all the resurrected saints. At the end of this 1,000 year period Satan will be released one last time to go out and deceive (if he can) all the new people who were born during this period. You can read how the game will wrap up in the final 3 chapters of the Game of Life’s handbook (The Revelation 20, 21, & 22).
So here’s the deal, my friend … you only get a short time to play in the game! But every single play you run is being written down in books! Everything you think, speak, and do, everyday of your life (every minute!) is being recorded. Jesus said:
“But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of Judgment.” (Matthew 12:36)
Wow! The Game of Life’s handbook says:
“And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their deeds.” (Revelation 20:12)
But friend, this is exactly what happens in the games we know and love here on Earth today! Take for example football, tennis, golf, hockey, etc … every play every player makes is recorded in books. They know who did what, when, and where.
In American football, they know a running back ran for 112 total yards – 23 yards in the first quarter on 4 carries. They know his first run was 7 yards on a 2nd down play to the left at the 2 min and 35 second mark of the game. In tennis, they know the winner served 22 aces, hit 144 backhands, ran for 1,786 meters, made 17 unforced errors, and on and on. Do you get it? Every play every player makes is recorded! Well likewise, EVERYTHING YOU DO in the Game of Life is being recorded! What you did. Where you did it. When you did it. Even why you did it, the motives of your heart!
So listen, on Judgment Day the evidence of your life will stand before you. It will be obvious what team you played on! Your works will prove it! If you ran plays of love, you’ll enter into life in heaven; if you ran plays of pride, you’ll perish in the lake of fire.
So the choice is yours RIGHT NOW! You have the option RIGHT NOW to begin doing the things you need to do to win the Game! And make no mistake about it … if you’re not playing for Jesus’ team, you’re playing for Satan’s! There’s no other option! You can’t sit this game out! So I’m begging you, visit our website www.10LoveCommandments.com and watch The Salvation Equation video series and The 10 Love Commandments video series. These two seminars will clear up everything on how to win the Game of Life and receive the reward of eternal life.
I’m warning you … there are MANY false doctrines in today’s churches (literally “doctrines from demons”) meant to deceive you into living a lifestyle that ends in the lake of fire. So please, please, I cannot overstate how important it is for you to watch those two video seminars. Make sure you’re playing for Jesus’ team of love so you win the Game of Life!
Well, that’s it my friend. The first 6,000 years of God’s Game of Life are almost over! It will END Feast of Trumpets 2028. God has purposed it! He has planned it! And He WILL bring it to pass!
But don’t wait till 2028 to get right with God, because He could pull you from the game tonight! So hit your knees and cry out to God, “Forgive me Lord, for every wicked thing I’ve ever done!” And then get up, with a new heart, and a new spirit, and begin making the necessary changes in your life to play for Jesus’ team. Well, I love you all! God help us! God bless.
The wicked will finally lose;The righteous will finally win(Proverbs 21:18, Living Bible)
