SID: So we know why the blood moons are important because the Bible talks about them, especially just before the Judgment Day, so to speak. Prophet Joel talks about that. But why connect them with the feasts, the biblical feasts? Why are the biblical feasts important to us, Mark?

MARK: Well sure, Sid. I see in Genesis chapter 1, verse 14 as a verse, I’ve read a hundred times. But all of a sudden it hit me like a ton of bricks. All of a sudden it had a whole new level of, I always thought God created the sun and the moon for light and for heat. But when I read Genesis 1:14, it said, “He created the sun and the moon for signs.” That’s the number one reason. Those first signs are signals. And then the very next word is mistranslated in English.

SID: What is it?

MARK: And then it says, “for seasons and days, and years”. Well when I read seasons, I think of winter, spring, summer or fall. But did you know that same Hebrew word they translate as “seasons,” in Genesis and Leviticus they translate that same word as “feasts.”

SID: So you’re saying the sun and the moon was created for food, for sun in the winter? This is what’s coming to me. If there are, you know, baseball, there’s you notice the catcher does certain hand signals, fast ball or curve or something like that. Now if the pitcher doesn’t know what those hand signals are, he won’t have a clue what’s going to happen. I mean, the catcher is liable to get right hit in the face.

MARK: Exactly.

SID: But if he knows, he’s prepared. Is that what you’re saying?

MARK: Exactly. Because that same word that’s translated as either “fall” or “food” literally means a Divine appointment. That’s what the Hebrew word “moreh” means. And how many people believe in Divine appointment? I mean, obviously.

SID: And how many of you want to know the sign for Divine appointment? I sure do.

MARK: The thing to me is all of a sudden I realize they’re scheduled. There’s some Divine appointments that are scheduled, like Passover, like the Feast of Tabernacles. And each one of these feasts in Hebrew is called a “miqra”. Now we translate that as convocation. But the Hebrew word implies a dress rehearsal. So every time on Passover the Jews went to the dress rehearsal of killing the Passover lamb on Passover because that is when the event was going to happen. So he died on Passover. He was buried on unleavened bread. He rose on the Feast of First Fruits and the Spirit was poured out on the Feast of Pentecost, or Shabuoth. But most Christians don’t know the Jews have been keeping Pentecost for every year for 1500 years.

SID: So what you’re saying is, not only are these biblical feasts shadows of every major event in the first coming of the Messiah, but you go even further. You’re saying to the exact day, and in some cases, they’re to the exact hour. Explain.

MARK: Exactly. It was at the third hour of the day they bound the Lord, it says. Well that’s nine in the morning, the time of the morning sacrifice. So at that every moment, the High Priest is binding the Passover lamb to the altar, they’re binding the Lamb of God to the cross and they’re singing the songs, they would always sing Psalms 113 thru 118. Did you know that God had David write the funeral song for his son a thousand years before?

SID: Is God brilliant or what?

MARK: Yeah. At the very moment, at the very moment they’re binding the Passover lamb to the altar, they’re binding Yeshua to the cross, Josephus records two and a half million Jews were in Jerusalem, and there’s this choir that is singing. And the words they’re singing is, “Bind the sacrificial cords even to the oars of the altar.” This is what they’re singing at the very moment. This is what they’re sharing at the binding of the cross. And then at noon when he’s lifted up, he said, “If I be lifted I will draw all men to me,” guess what they’re singing? Psalm 118. And what are the words? “The right hand of the Lord is lifted up. The right hand of the Lord is exalted.” This is, so not only did he fulfill the feast to the day, but to the very single hour. And so the thing is this. If we’re not on the right calendar, see our calendar is based on the sun.

SID: Right.

MARK: The Islamic calendar is based on the moon. But God says, “Let them, both the sun and the moon, determine the days of my day timer.”

SID: Wait a second. The church celebrates Resurrection Sunday. So, you know, so isn’t that the same?

MARK: Well it’s on the wrong calendar.

SID: Wrong calendar? But wait, wait. The church celebrates Pentecost. Is that right?

MARK: On the wrong calendar.

SID: No wonder, no I won’t say it.

MARK: Well I’ll give you a perfect example.

SID: Okay.

MARK: Here’s the thing. The feast, God’s appointed time—

SID: This is going to get me in trouble.

MARK: But God is a God of order. And because of that he has to die before he gets buried. He’s got to be buried before he can raise from the dead. And then he got raised from the dead before the Holy Spirit poured down on Pentecost. Do you know on the secular calendar we use, because we’re on the wrong calendar, two years from now, Easter is a month before Passover. We celebrate the Resurrection before he even dies.

SID: I’ll tell you what. I have to ask you this. If the first feasts are perfect shadows to the day, the hour, the events in the death and resurrection of Jesus, what about last few feasts? What are they shadows of?

MARK: Well do you believe the Lord is the same yesterday, today and forever?

SID: Of course.

MARK: I mean, do you really believe that?

SID: I really believe that.

MARK: Well if you really believe it, if people believe he fulfilled the Spring feasts to the day of the first coming, he’ll fulfill the fall feast to the day of the second coming.

SID: Well. I mean, let me ask you this most important question. We have this tetrad in the last blood moon of the four that are coming up. But you say there are certain things about this last tetrad that has never happened in history. Are you sure?

MARK: Yes.

SID: I’ll tell you what. When we come back, I want to hear what’s about ready to happen. That wasn’t a very convincing yes. Say yes! Okay. We’ll be right back.
