Now the questions this raises are several. What is the significance of Moses returning exactly on the Day of Atonement? How does this connect with Passover and Pentecost?
How does this fit in with the pattern of the fall feasts mentioned above? What does it have to do with the Revelation of Jesus Christ? And what is the connection to the coming of the Lord?
First of all lets look at a brief summary of the events in Exodus.
In the Exodus, Moses led the people out of Egypt at Passover.
Then they journey to Mt. Sinai and receive the law at Pentecost.
The Lord gives Moses the stone tables. Then after Moses breaks the first set of stone tables, he ascends the mountain again. He comes down again after some time with the second set of stone tables. He instructs the people to begin gathering the materials to build the tabernacle. This happened on or about the time of Tabernacles.
The tabernacle is completed 6 months later on the first day of the first month, just in time for the celebration of the Passover.
So, we can see that Passover is the beginning and the end. All of the feasts point to Jesus, our Passover, and all are prophetic.
Revelation 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
Each of the feasts has been partly fulfilled by Jesus, in the past, and awaits a further fulfillment to come. We are starting to see a connection with our other main theme, the Revelation of Jesus Christ.
This also brings up one more question, how did Jesus partly fulfill the feast of tabernacles? We can see that he fulfilled Passover in his death and resurrection. And we see that the coming of the Holy Spirit in Acts 2 is a fulfillment of Pentecost. But what did he do that fulfilled tabernacles? Don't let me forget to come back to this question.
