The Feasts of Return
By Mario A. Taboada – Sock Puppet of God
At sundown on September 24, evening of Tishri 1 will begin with blowing of the Shofar for the Feast of Trumpets and so as well for the Shmita year.
Traditionally/historically, the day is not recognized officially, until two or more witnesses of the nation of Israel (Yisrael) actually see the new moon. However, now that we have astronomy down to an exact science we can calculate the presence of the new moon in its timing. However, I am not surprised that in times past, Yahweh-God would make sure the sky was clear over Yisrael for His faithful who were watching.
With this shmita comes the implication and very real possibility that the last day of the last week of the final seven weeks spoken of by the angel Gabriel to Daniel in Chapter Nine of the Book of Daniel, begins.
Daniel 9:25 "So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince there will be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks;
Yerushaylim (Jerusalem) was recaptured in June 1967. From that time forty-nine years are accounted. One biblical week is seven years. Therefore, seven weeks is forty-nine years. The biblical commerce/political year for the nation begins Tishri 1 of each year and each biblical year is 354 days.
However, the actual decree for restoration of Jerusalem (most likely) was established nine months earlier during Yom Kippur 1966, and June, 1967 being nine months later; Yerushaylim, like a new born baby was delivered into the arms of Yisrael.
I believe we will see Yahshua return in the acceptable year of the Father, just as He came the first time in that same year, the Year of Jubilee is the "acceptable year" which immediate follows the shmita year and begins at sundown Tishri 10, 2015. Counting forward, forty-nine years from Yom Kippur 1966 (the time the decree for restoration of Jerusalem was established) you arrive at Yom Kippur 2015 (September 13, 2015). This point I learned, back in 2008 from Rabbi Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries when he released his discovery of the lunar and solar eclipses occurring on the appointed biblical feast days.
I believe we will know and know now one year in advance of His return, and as this biblical year progresses we will come to know which day of His return one day prior, and in that day then we will know which hour, one hour in advance.
Here’s why I believe that.
I trust in Messiah's promise in and of the Rauch ha Quodesh (Holy Spirit) when Messiah proclaimed " John 16: 12 “I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. (...sounds like we are on a need to know basis) 13“But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. 14“He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you. 15“All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you.
If, it is true that Messiah first coming fulfilled the spring feast (and I believe it is) and His second coming fulfills the fall feast, establishes a pattern of the father's will; therefore, just as he came in the year of jubilee would he not return in the same manner at the same time, and as he ask his disciples (which we have become through faith by grace) for one hour of prayer before He was taken, it would be reasonable to understand and believe that He would ask the same one hour of prayer just before the hour of his return, (according to the father's pattern), yes?
Now, here is something else I found that I was not searching for, please take notice of this scene, just before he was to be led to His crucifixion; but most importantly, notice too that no one knew the day and the hour of His crucifixion until he told them; exactly one day and the one hour before it happened.
(This happened one day before the Feast of Pass Over!)
Matthew 26:18New American Standard Bible (NASB)
18 And He said, “Go into the city to a certain man, and say to him, ‘The Teacher says, “My time is near; I am to keep the Passover at your house with My disciples.
John 13:1-17 Now before the Feast of the Passover, Jesus knowing that His hour had come that He would depart out of this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end. 2 During supper, the devil having already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, to betray Him, 3 Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had come forth from God and was going back to God, 4 *got up from supper, and *laid aside His garments; and taking a towel, He girded Himself.
(He said this to His disciples as his final hour began)
Matt 26:45 Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
I was not looking for this; however, I gave my whole heart to the purpose of the month of Elul, (Elul means I am for my beloved and my beloved is for me) and for the past three weeks I prayed that my heart be searched, and for all things wicked and offensive to the father, found by Rauch ha Quodesh, and I would be granted the gift of agreement, confession, and repentance. Then in the midst of my time of prayers this concept came by revelation.
Yes, I agree, we are on a need to know term, and at the time we need to know, then we will know.
Therefore, we walk by faith from one appointed time to the next for the blessing of His coming, while believing in the blessings and our earnest efforts to prepare ourselves according to His will, for His arrival.
The point is to watch and pray. We watch for the appointed days in the appointed years to come and we pray confessing and repenting because in the next hour of those days in the appointed acceptable year He will appear. We know that He fulfilled His first coming in the days of the Spring Feast and begin His ministry in the “Acceptable Year” aka the Year of Jubilee. The New Covenant is not of works but of Faith and Grace and Worship in Spirit and in Truth. Therefore, if you are found praying and watching in those appointed times, what will He say of you upon his arrival? If you are watching the signs and living your life from feast day to feast day rather than paycheck to paycheck; if you are putting the things and times and seasons He appoints first, rather than the things, times and seasons man appoints, what will He say of you upon His arrival?
His disciples ask to be told of the "signs" of His return. They did not ask for a date. Messiah said the signs would be a tribulation such as never before. Well; many say "Oh, we have always had Earthquakes..." Wars, disease, famines… so, on and so, on.
Therefore, we look whether we are having tribulation in the Earth as never before. Just go and research the seismic records at USGS, and see if the Earth is in a time of tribulation such as never before. I'm just using this fact to make this point.
Many other signs are manifesting and the facts of those signs have happened throughout history but have they occurred in the volume they are occurring now? America and the rest of the world are in a constant state of war, like never before, pestilence, famine, subversion of liberty are occurring on a scale like never before, yes? We have volcanos erupting everywhere and fireballs and comets coming in the dozens all over the world. Our Borders are overrun. Our economy is best described by Custer's Last Stand. Our government is corrupt at its core. Mainstream 501 (c) (3) Christian Church leaders AKA Church of Laodicea AKA First Church of Babylon are giving themselves over to FEMA and doctrines of tolerance of perversions Satanic doctrines and same sex marriage are now part of curriculum through public schools.
RFID Bio-metric technology that will track everything we do is already implanted, and soon because paper currency is just too hard to handle, you will not be able to buy sell or trade unless you take the RFID chip in your hand, and then you are saying you are owned by a system that is a beast. Do really want Messiah to delay His return any longer?
If you are watching and praying you already know the answers. Remember, the Holy Spirit is guaranteed to tell us of ALL things to come. Therefore, watch and pray from each of the appointed times to the next.

Yahshua is the Passover Lamb sacrificed for our sins…
He is the unleavened bread as He had no sin, nor was he puffed up about his flesh
He came down from the Holy Mountain of Zion in the Heavens as Moses came down Mt. Saini (50 days after he ascended) with the Law, but instead Yahshua came in the Holy Spirit with the grace of Yahweh-the father and instead of Law He gave us the Holy Spirit which gives us grace and all things of the Father, instead of tablets of stones and the of Laws He did not do away with but instead He wrote them upon our hearts. This is the new covenant. This is the Gospel of Yahshua the Messiah.

Hebrews 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
Quit walking in only half the covenant lest you trample the blood the Lamb with your feet as you walk in disobedience and ignorance. If we have received the blood of the Lamb then we must receive the whole covenant. We must look for the laws Abba Father chose to write on our hearts. No longer does he have pleasure in the blood of livestock for atonement for our sins because the Holy blood of His lamb has been poured out for our sins; now let us walk this way by faith and stay away from all things that ruin our physical strength (as much as we can on our own and be faithful in prayer for the rest) lest nourish our hearts and minds according to all of these commandments.

The apostle Paul (Rabbi Shaul) wrote
I am crucified with the Salavtion of Yahweh-God, the Messiah (Yahshua ha Mashiach): nevertheless I live; yet not I, but the Holy spirit liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. 21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by only the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet. 8But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. For without the law sin was dead. 9For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died. 10And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death. 11For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me. 12Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.
You cannot say Yes if you cannot say no. You cannot have blessing without judgment. You cannot have judgment without sin. You cannot have sin without law. You cannot have law without love. You cannot have love without mercy. You cannot have mercy without faith, and without faith you cannot please God.
Rom 8:28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
Baruch ha Shem Yahshua ha Mashiach, yeshua
Blessed is the authority of the Salvation of Yahweh-God, the Messiah, He will save.
I pray the fullness of all mercy and goodness of Yahshua Messiah overflow within your gates and every strength be added to you.
Repent and Receive the Salvation and eternal life of Yahweh-God
Heavenly Father, I have ignored your will and fallen short of your expectations. I have sinned against you and I ask your forgiveness. I believe that your only begotten son took the penalty for my sins on the cross and He is the lamb whose blood was poured out for the remission of my sins.
I am grateful to receive your grace and mercy and I ask your Holy Spirit to dwell within my heart and soul and remain there forever.
Thank you, heavenly Father, for your mercy and grace. Thank you Jesus for your most precious gifts of eternal salvation and eternal life by sacrificing your life for mine through your crucifixion, death, and resurrection. Amen.
I hope you will share that prayer with a loved one or even just a stranger whom you know has not received the Salvation of Yahweh-God, Yahshua ha Mashiach - Jesus Christ.
