The Truth of Genesis: The Seven Feasts Of Yehovah, Part 2

The crop of barley must be used in the Temple as the First Fruits offering, which we will explain later. If the barley is not ripe enough, there cannot be a first fruits offering to Yehovah. So that is why another month is added, called Adar Bet, to give more time for the barley crop to ripen. Adar is the twelfth month, and Adar Bet is “the second twelfth month”.

Once the first day (or evening) of the new year is determined by the sighting of the renewed Moon, nine days later, on the 10th day of the month, the High Priest of the temple would travel from Jerusalem to Bethlehem, a five mile journey, to pick out the most perfect male lamb in the city of David. There would be thousands of lambs killed that would be sacrificed on the Temple Mount, but the primer lamb had to be specially chosen.

The priest would take it back to Jerusalem by late morning, enter thru a special gate, and take the special lamb thru the streets and up to the Temple mount. The streets would be lined on both sides by thousands of people, who would yell “Hosanna in the highest, to the son of David. Messiah come, Messiah come. Blessed is he that cometh in the name of Yehovah”. This was a yearly rehearsal which King David put in place in expectation of the promised coming of the Messiah of Israel. This all occurred on the morning of the 10th day of the first month.

This day, and for the next three days, the lamb would be tied to a post and available for examination or inspection by the people to look for flaws. If no blemish could be found by the 14th day, the priest would proclaim “I find no fault in him”. With help, the High priest along with other priests of the temple, would kill thousands of lambs on the temple mount. After more than six hours of sacrificing lambs, the last premier lamb would be sacrificed, and the High Priest would shout with a loud voice “It is finished”. All the lambs would be roasted and eaten after sundown.

The 14th day is called “Passover”, because in Egypt, in March of 1598 BC, the Lord “passed over” the houses that had the blood of the lamb on their door posts.

Exodus 12:13

And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.

Sin is the plague that causes death. The wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23). The blood of Yeshua, the Lamb of Yehovah, is the cleansing agent that washes away sin when immersed in water and His name is called upon.

About the Author

- Herman Cummings is a computer data analyst, who used his training to analyze the written text of Genesis. On EasterSunday, in 1990, a lady stood up in Sunday School and asked the pastor “How can I teach my children about Adam & Eve, when all they are taught is evolution in school?”. The pastor could only say “Just believe the Bible”. That was of no help to the lady. So Herman Cummings began his research to resolve the issue, since the worlds of Creationism and Theology could not literally reconcile Genesis with scientific reality. After receiving the revelation of the first chapter from the Lord in December 1993, Herman Cummings became the world’s leading expert on the book of Genesis (Bereshit).
