Joshua and the Festivals "A REVELATION"

I was driving down to Vancouver, WA so as to speak for two hours at the Sukkot gathering with Hank & Marilee Hobson or Love4Israel

I stopped to have a bite to eat thinking to go over what I was going to be speaking on while sipping coffee at a Denny's Restaurant. I was looking for a timeline concerning the events in Joshua's entering the "Promised Land" and David defeating Goliath. {about 350 years between events]

All of a sudden while looking at Joshuah 4:19, I begun to see a pattern of the Holy Festivals
"And the people came up out of Jordan on the tenth day of the first month, and encamped in Gilgal, in the east border of Jericho. [Passover on ABBA'S calendar]

The next event was circumcision, Chapter 5
Cutting away or removing...My First thought was leaven [Festival of Unleavened Bread]

Joshua then is standing before the HOST of the Armies of Heaven
Joshua 5:13 "And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went to him, and said to him, Are you for us, or for our adversaries?"
[Festival of First Fruits, Yeshua appears]

Interlinear break down
[Jos 5:15 And the captain of the LORD'S host said <'amar> unto Joshua , Loose thy shoe from off thy foot ; for the place whereon thou standest <`amad> is holy . And Joshua did <`asah> so.

Festival of Pentecost...."Take of your shoes for you are standing on holy ground
Joshua 5:15 "And the captain of the LORD'S host said to Joshua, Loose your shoe from off your foot; for the place where on you stand is holy. And Joshua did so."

Festival of Trumpets, Yom Teruah Chapter 6
Jericho....need I say anything more?

Achan and the trespass Chapter 7 
Festival of Atonement.....Yom Kippur 

Following the pattern the next events are the five Amorite kings who lost the land as a result of coming against Joshua...Read chapters 8, 9, & 10...You will see that Joshua is obeying the commands of the God of Israel who is with him as he takes possession of the land that will eventually become where the Temple was to be built. It is also a dress rehearsal for the story of David and Goliath.

I loose my breathe reading Abba's word now that I understand the Hebraic concepts and repeating patterns that Judaism has always known. The more that I return to what ABBA has embedded into the Hebrew sons of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.....That Moses saw face to face or mouth to mouth in it's original context....I see something amazing leaping out of this book we call the Bible. 

It is the living history of the revelation of our Messiah revealed through Israel.

Festival of Pesach, Passover
Festival of Unleavened Bread
Festival of First Fruits
Festival of Pentecost or Weeks
Festival of Trumpets (Yom Teruah)
Festival of Atonement (Yom Kippur)
Festival of Tabernacles or Sukkot

To the Christian community: If you do not understand these dates and or appointed times that are scheduled during the 6000 year plan of redemption of Israel and those grafted into this nation becoming ONE....It is most likely due to what we were taught in Christianity that led us away from God's Spoken, Written and
Living word.

And to the Jewish community What if you are wrong concerning the Deity of Moshiach in the person of Yeshua one of your brothers! What has the cost been to your nation and the entire world?
