The Heavenly Scroll, The Plan of Salvation, and The Feast Cycle
by Rav Sha’ul
In all our attempts to be obedient to the letter of the Law, we again fail our Father in Spiritual Intent. We remain addicted to milk, lacking teeth to digest the meatier matters of what The Feast Cycle was designed to teach us… The Plan of Salvation foretold in The Heavenly Scroll, fulfilled in The Yahushaic Covenant.
In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers (of the intent of the Law), you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of Yahuah’s word all over again. You need milk (the letter), not solid food (Spiritual Intent. The Law is Spiritually appraised 1 Corinthians 2:14)!
Teachers who can bring us under condemnation to the “letter of the Law”; telling us everything has to be done “just like this… or just like that”, yet never tell us the “why” these things are done; which is the more important MEAT… these teachers are a ‘dime a dozen’! These are infant teachers, teaching infants, all feeding on milk! Nothing has changed in 2,000 years because we do not have mature teachers teaching the Spiritual Law, we have immature teachers trying to “look knowledgeable” with all their impressive carnal/literal knowledge of the letter. We mistake these men as “teachers”, when they are in as much need of instruction as the rest of us in Spiritual Things.
1 Corinthians 3
1 Brothers, I could not address you as spiritually mature, but as worldly (immature with a literal/carnal approach to the Spiritual Law)—as infants in The Yahushaic Covenant. 2 I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for solid food. In fact, you are still not ready, 3 for you are still worldly (approaching the Spiritual Law from a literal mindset, putting the letter above intent, and totally missing the point).
In this teaching, my goal is to illustrate very simply what The Feast Cycle is pointing to, and rehearsing, so that we can properly rehearse our role in these moedim as The Bride of the Messiah. The Spring Feasts rehearse are the engagement and the Fall Feast are a rehearsal the wedding. We should approach our celebration of these moedim from that standpoint. If we do, not only will we please Yahuah, but we will mature from the milk of the Word to the meat of it. In the process, we will fulfill “the letter” and properly prepare ourselves as the Bride; and have our candles lit when Yahusha returns to receive us unto himself. Instead, we remain infants feeding on the milk of the word, never maturing in the intent of things. Year after year, we go through the motions, “to the letter”, just like ancient Israel had always done… then MISSED the Messiah.
