Ten Days & Two Brides

I have to admit, I really do enjoy reading Messianic writings, but the one I read today was… wOw.  It was by someone I’d never heard of before, and was supposed to be about the Ten Days of Awe.  I was very excited about the premise – would the writer see something in those ten days I have missed or need to know?  It was titled “The Ten Days of Awe Leading up to Yom Kippur” and was by one Maria Merola of Double Portion Inheritance Ministry.
Upon reading the article, I was sorely disappointed.  It had… frankly, absolutely no structure or even a real POINT to it.  The article started off with the writer talking about the feasts in prophecy (< NOT the Ten Days), then she began blithering off into unsupported opinion of end times events, then got sidetracked with pagan holidays and launched into a rant on the evils of Easter and X-Mess and segued into the coming destruction of America foretold by Ezekiel because they perform abortions… in summary, the article was a MESS.  And within it were some TOTAL untruths.
My point isn’t to bash an article… what I want to talk about are the things that really ‘green lighted’ for me.  Which are going to require further prayer and consideration, because when you’re getting the information that SOUNDS interesting from a raving, unsound and unreliable source, well, it tends to make you a bit leery.
Statement 1:   Then there will be 30 more days of the month of Elul (1,290 days)… at the end of the 1,290 days will begin the 7th month of Tishri (Feast of Trumpets).  This is when the 7th angel sounds as soon as the two witnesses are taken up.  This all happens concurrently with the other books of Revelation leading up to Revelation 20, as Revelation cannot be read sequentially.
Why can’t it be read sequentially?  Chapters 1 thru 7 are definitely sequential, so precedence sets that the rest be sequential.  Her own statement is sequential – Trump Seven follows the Two Witnesses in Chapter 11, after all!  And since when is the MONTH of Tishri the Feast of Trumpets?  That’s just the first day of Tishri – there are three other feasts within it!  She’s unclear, not scriptural…
BUT!  Did you catch that 1,290 reference?  In Daniel 12:11, it says that there are 1290 days from the time the sacrifice it taken away to the Abomination of Desolations.  But all the Revelation references (to the two witnesses, to Israel’s time in the desert at the end, to the AC’s rule) are 1260 days.  So people have always wondered about those extra 30 days in Daniel 12.  The writer of this article says that they’re the 30 days of Elul.  ((<< THIS made sense to me.))
Not only that, but I took it a little further – Daniel 12:12 goes on to say ‘blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the THOUSAND THREE HUNDRED AND FIVE AND THIRTY DAYS.  Whoa, now WAIT – cuz that’s an extra 45 days.  So now I’m thinking… there are 10 days of Awe, from Rosh Ha’Shana to Yom Kippur.  I have suspected that these ten days are also symbolic of the length of the Tribulation – from the ‘Day no man knows’ to ‘Judgment Day’.  But on top of these, there are also five days from Yom Kippur (Judgment) to Sukkot (Dwelling with Adonai).  That’s FIFTEEN days total.  Fifteen days of the festal period plus Elul’s 30-days are FoRTY-FiVe!!  But these 45 days are not part of the 30 days.  So… is there ANOTHER thirty-day period, then?  Maybe she got close, but no tomato?  What do you think?
Statement 2:  What I see, is that there is the resurrection of Leah (10 Northern Tribes of Israel assimilated as Gentiles) and there is a 7-day wedding.  Then on Yom Kippur, Yeshua comes back and gets Rachel, also.  Remember in the prophetic pattern, Laban (symbolic of the Father) said to Jacob, “finish the week with Leah, and I will give you Rachel, also.”  …And so on Yom Kippur, the day of Atonement, is when the house of Judah (Jews) discover if their names are written in the Book of Life; they also call this ‘face to face’…
I have NEVER heard of the story of Rachel/Leah as being prophetic before!  That is… wOw, wild!!  AND it fits with my Ten Days of Awe as a Trib period.  We are (2010) at the mid-point of the Trib (if Solana’s ENPI is the 7-year-but-broken covenant).  That leaves SEVEN years left – IF Leah are the saints of Revelation 7 (and Rachel the sealed 144,000 of the same chapter), then it fits with a mid-Trib/pre-Wrath rapture!  Moving into a 7-day (seven year?) Marriage Supper in Heaven.  THIS green lights!
Statement 3:  The Two Witnesses are a special group of people who thought that they were Gentiles (Ephraim) and they discover their Hebraic Roots, so they join the Jews (Judah), and this is when the Two sticks (Ephraim & Judah) become one stick in the Lord’s hand (Ezekiel 37:16-17) and this is the same “one new man” the Apostle Paul spoke about in Ephesians 2:12-15.  This is that two witness group. They also are taken at the 7th trumpet (as the 7th angel sounds) in Revelation 11:15. This group goes with redeemed Leah (Gentiles who become one new man with Jews). Then 7 days later, the remnant of Rachel who did not take the mark, are also redeemed on Yom Kippur and changed. Then the two groups (Leah & Rachel) Gentile & Jew go into the marriage together to celebrate the drinking of the wine of the covenant on Feast of Tabernacles.
Okay, wait.  So the witnesses are not Moses and Elijah, but rather two GROUPS of witnesses?  Not so sure I agree with that one.  That’s a LOT of bodies in the streets for three days… and further makes NO sense whatever.  Unless she’s talking about another reality of duality… as in, two physical witnesses AND two people groups.  But THAT doesn’t make sense, either, because she says the people groups are 1) Messianics converted during the 3.5 years and 2) Jews.  Then she says they go up at the seventh Trumpet, and seven days later the Jews go up.  Didn’t she just HAVE them go up?  (<< Like I said, this chick is…inconsistent.)  And how can they go to the marriage supper if it’s already over (at the end of seven years)?  NO sense.
Statement 4:  There are 5 days between the Day of Atonement & The Feast of Tabernacles, and this is the white throne judgment seat of Messiah—where the dead are judged. The righteous will receive rewards as to whether his works were of “wood, hay or stubble” (1st Corinthians 3:12).
kay, but this isn’t supported by scripture, either, or numerics, or ANYTHING.  Why five days?  I’m missing something, but I don’t know what.  And while it feels like there’s something here, I don’t think she nailed it.  Which… is no surprise, but I don’t have an answer.  So the question is, what is the significance of the five days?  I’ll have to do some reading/praying about that one.
Anyhow, I know that this post was me trying to discuss something (that you haven’t read!) with you, and as a result probably didn’t make much sense… but I really had to talk thru some of this, and consider it more.  For all the inconsistency, contradiction of scripture, and hodge of ideas, there were a few concepts that really sparked my brain to thinkin’!  So… thanks for listening, at the least, and for any feedback you might have to help me out with this.
