How do these Feasts tie in with the Messiah?
The Messiah fulfilled the first three Spring Feasts to the very day, hour and moment in time, thus fulfilling the Torah! The Ruach (Holy Spirit) fulfilled the fourth Feast of Shavuot/ Pentecost. We know from scripture that Yahshua will fulfill the fall feasts to the very day, hour and moment. This is why everything I have presented up to this point falls on the fall feast days. It is because it is the Almighty’s Appointed Feasts. They highlight future events or shadow pictures of good things to come as well as judgment events in the very near future. Until you realize that everything points to the Creator’s Fall Feast Days as His Appointed Feasts (mow’ed), then figuring this all out apart from those feast days is absolutely futile and is the reason why so many prophecy gurus in the past have been so wrong with date setting.
In order to clarify and to show you the significance of these feasts, I need to explain in detail the fulfillment of the Spring Feasts of Passover. By covering the spring feasts and their fulfillment, you will understand the significance of the fall feast and why they need to be fulfilled in the same manner as the spring feasts.
The Messiah died on a Wednesday, Not a Friday!
Unfortunately, there has been some false teachings that have been inherited by the Church. One of the biggest lies says that Yahshua died on a Friday and arose on the first day of the week, Sunday. Yahushua did not die on a Friday and arise on a Sunday. If that were the case, then He could not be the Messiah!
In order to explain this, I need to make reference to the following image titled, Hebraic & Gregorian Day. It is difficult to break this down with our westernized mindset, so this is the reason for the image. What you will notice is the correlation of the Hebraic day compared to the Gregorian day. Notice that Friday night would be sunset of the 6th day, just before the Sabbath (Shmitah) of rest on the 7th day. The beginning of the 7th day would in fact be the beginning of 12 hours of night until Saturday morning at sunrise, the 7th day. This would account for the 1st night and would begin day number one, which would last for 12 hours until of day until sunset Saturday night, which would account for the second night. It would have been at that moment that Yahshua more than likely would have resurrected, this being the beginning of the first day, Sunday. With that said, it is a possibility that he could of resurrected before sunrise Sunday morning.
In reality, according to the common belief within Christianity, Yahshua would have been in the grave for… 1 Day & 2 Nights!
This would have violated the Torah and would have made Yahshua a Torah breaker, which He was not! This is a big reason why the Jewish People still today reject their Hebrew Messiah, simply because of this false belief system being preached from the pulpits. This false belief system is as a result of allowing paganism within the church.
By Understanding the Feast Days and reading the Scripture we can clearly see what Day Yahshua died.
So, if Friday is the wrong day, then what day would He have died?
The reality is that Yahshua came the first time in order to become the perfect sacrificial lamb required for the forgiveness of sins. He was the Passover sacrificial lamb who died on Passover, Nisan 14. He fulfilled Passover, was buried on the beginning of the Feast of Unleavened Bread and resurrected 72 hours later on the Feast of Firstfruits. He fulfilled the Torah by fulfilling the spring feasts. By going to Torah Calendar, we can travel back in time and view which Passover that would have qualified for His actual death, burial and resurrection. Please view the following image.
Torah Calendar has determined the year 17 AD for this fulfillment with Pesach (Passover) being Wednesday.
Part of the confusion within Christianity has to do with this idea of the high Sabbath. John 19:31 states…
“Therefore, since it was the Preparation Day, that the bodies should not remain on the stake on the Sabbath – for that Sabbath was a high one – the Yehuḏim asked Pilate to have their legs broken, and that they be taken away.” John 19:31 (emphasis added in bold)
You will notice that it says that it was a High Sabbath! The High Sabbath happens after the Feast of Passover every year. That high sabbath fell on the beginning of Nisan 15. The majority of Pastors and Christian Leaders still hold on to the “Traditions of Men” that says that the Sabbath must have been Saturday and hence his death on Friday. Be careful not to buy into the lies that have been inherited from our forefathers, Jeremiah 16:12-13!
Yahshua died and resurrected in the Year 17AD
Augustus declared father of the country in 2 BC (Tiberius begins to co-reign with him)
In August of 10 AD, just as the original 17 AD article on spiritandtorah.com states, Augustus dies. But then . . .
Livia, matriarch and widow to Augustus (and mother to Tiberius) wants to rule — this happens till 13 AD when Tiberius is able to remove Livia.
***Tiberius has Livia’s grandson murdered and effectively prevented Livia from ruling) . . . In 13 AD, Tiberius‘ constitutional powers are RENEWED.

13 AD is technically Tiberius’s 15th year of reign since he started co ruling with Augustus in 2 BC . . . . which matches up with Luke 3:1 and Yahshua beginning His ministry that fall . . .
Yahshua died and resurrected in 17 CE, not 28 CE.
Amazingly, the Hebrew Feast days all occurred on the same days in 17 CE as they did in 28 CE.
Yahshua died and resurrected was 17 AD, a jubilee year.
This, in turn, is the final confirmation that 2017 is also a jubilee year, and the year Yahshua is returning to earth.
The question is, when exactly was the 15th year of Tiberius?
a solar eclipse was said to be a portent that Augustus would die. Most historians say Augustus died in 14 AD.
However, astronomical data shows no solar eclipses visible from the Roman Empire occurred from 11 to 14 AD.
There was a total solar eclipse visible from Italy as a partial solar eclipse on June 30th, 10 AD. Thus, if Augustus died in August of 10 AD rather than the generally accepted August of 14 AD, the partial solar eclipse would have happened about 2 months prior to his death and would have been seen as a clear portent of his death. Thus, Augustus died in 10 AD.
Fact 3: According to Ronald L. Conte Jr. who wrote the book Important Dates in the Lives of Jesus and Mary, …
Tiberius came to power 10 years before Augustus died and co reigned with Augustus for 10 years.
To see the many historical view points he uses to prove this, please see this link: http://www.biblicalchronology.com/tiberius.htm
So, based upon the above 3 simple facts, we can conclude that Tiberius rose to power and co reigned with Augustus in 1 AD. Technically,Tiberius was appointed by Augustus to co-reign with him on June 26th, 1 BC but the Romans did not count the first year of an emperor’s reign until the new calendar year began. At this point the Romans were using the Julian calendar which started on January 1. So 1 AD would have been the first year of Tiberius’ reign.
Augustus died shortly after a partial solar eclipse visible from the Roman Empire in 10 AD, leaving Tiberius as the sole Caesar. Thus,Tiberius’ 15th year of his reign would have been in the year 15 AD.
According to Luke 3:1, John began his ministry at some point in 15 AD as this would have been the 15th year of Tiberius’ reign.
It is likely John began his ministry around Passover of 15 AD and baptized Yahshua during the Fall Feasts of 15 AD, then skippingforward 70 weeks would bring us to Passover of 17 AD.
Remember the huge earthquake that occurred at the time Yahshua died on the tree?
According to author A.J. Woodman who wrote the book Ancient Historiography and Its Contexts: Studies in Honour,a devastating earthquake that overthrew 12 cities including Sardis happened in the year 17 AD. Also Pliny, the ancient historian, refers to the greatest earthquake in world history occurring in the year 17 AD. In contrast, there is absolutely no recorded earthquake occurring anywhere around the dates of 30 to 33 AD when Yahshua is commonly believed to have been crucified.
I think it is obvious that Yahshua was crucified and resurrected at Passover 17 AD.
It makes complete logical sense that Yahshua would be killed and resurrected in a jubilee year. Thus, I think it is obvious that the year 17 AD was a jubilee year.
Counting forward by 50’s, we see that both 1967, the year Israel took back Jerusalem and 2017 are both jubilee years.
We now have the final confirmation that ….
Yahshua will be returning to earth on Yom Teruach, Wednesday, September 20th at sunset on Yom Teruach, to resurrect His Bride!
