The Harvest Festivals

In Leviticus 23, God commands that the harvest festivals be celebrated every year. We are talking about the early harvest (the Barley harvest), the second harvest (the Wheat harvest) and the late harvest (the Grape harvest). This is one of the most important symbolisms mentioned in the Bible and yet it is not recognized by anyone. The Jews have always celebrated these festivals and yet they don't get it. They do not know what they are celebrating, any more than today's theologians and religious leaders do they understand what it means.

The early harvest is at Passover, so is the current Easter. The second harvest is 50 days later and the number 50 symbolically means "MERCY" and coincides with the Feast of Pentecost. The third harvest (the Grape harvest) is a harvest that is obtained under pressure. The bible speaks of the grape harvest and that there will also be waste. The waste is incinerated and nothing is left of it. These harvests are also symbolic and you will see the explanation below.

Depending on the translation of the Bible, the harvests are also called differently. The first harvest is also called the BARLEY HARVEST. Barley is therefore a grain that is hardy, packed with minerals, vitamins and fiber. In Exodus 9:31 the harvests are also described as the early and later harvest, but also described as the Barley - and the Wheat harvest. The grape harvest is of a completely different category. Grapes are pressed and the waste is incinerated. This too is symbolic for the future and is very clearly described in the "Apocryphal Books" the Revelations of Paul and in the Revelations of Peter.

Many who believe in the Bible believe that if a person dies, he or she is immediately condemned to Hell or Heaven. This is not mentioned anywhere in the Bible and it would not be fair. Jesus says very clearly that He is the only way to God. God is love and so He proves it. All people who have not yet heard about Jesus will be told that Jesus died for all. So all other texts disappeared during the compilation of the Bible by the Catholic Bishops at the end of the fourth century.

The striking thing is that in the Revelations they have left the part that is recorded in Revelation 22:18 about discarding and adding to the Bible, that this will be punished very severely, precisely these people have left out a lot.

When that was written, the Bible didn't even exist, so how could that be for the entire Bible?

The Barley Harvest

The Barley harvest can therefore also be called the early or the first harvest. The Bible says little about this, but Matthew 27:51-53 'Suddenly, the curtain of the sanctuary was torn in two from top to bottom, the earth quaked, and the rocks were split. The tombs were also opened and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised. And they came out of the tombs after his resurrection, entered the holy city, and appeared to many. ' 

If people come back to life, that is, rise from the dead, they will not die again. These people - not ghosts - rose from the graves and went to Jerusalem (another symbolism!).

The Gospel of Nicodemus says: The Entry of the King (Jesus Christ)

While Satan and Hades were thus conversing with one another, there was a voice like the sound of thunder: "Lift up your gates, O rulers, and be exalted, O eternal doors, that the King of glory shall enter." When Hades heard this, he said to Satan, "Go out, if you can, and stop him." Satan went out, and Hades said to his demons, "Keep the bronze gates and the iron bars well and firmly secured, fasten my bars, and stand erect to inspect everything. For when he enters here evil will come upon us." ,'

The second part of the Gospel of Nicodemus describes what happens in the realm of the dead. The communication between the realm of the dead and satan, the communication between the prophets and the patriarchs and other saints. The mockery of the Saints at Satan. The way Jesus illuminates this dark space at the moment of His death with His light and how the saints experience this.

In Matthew it is very clearly stated that these saints go to Jerusalem, Jerusalem also symbolizes the kingdom of God, the city of God.

In summary: The first act that Jesus performed was the opening of the realm of the dead through which all the saints were allowed to enter the city of God.

The saints, then, are all those who have looked forward with unwavering conviction to the coming of Jesus Christ, who have longed for this moment with a holy longing. Jesus is the savior, only through His sacrifice could death be conquered. Only at this moment the realm of the dead has been unlocked and it is therefore the first harvest for which the Barley harvest is synonymous. Barley is a hardy grain and can withstand all external influences. Do you see the symbolism of the Barley Grain for the Saints?

Summary: Matthew 27:52 is the preface to the Gospel of Nicodemus. The sons of Simeon, the man who took Jesus in his arms - as a baby - in the temple, wrote this story after their resurrection and handed it over to Nicodemus.

Part 1 of the cave: These souls have taken their place in the first part of this cave and here is a part with a well, this part is for the Saints, the Prophets and the Patriarchs. Also all who believe in Jesus Christ after this are received in this part where the source is. The next crop is the second crop, the Wheat Harvest.

The Wheat Harvest

This harvest festival - the Wheat Harvest - is celebrated 50 days later. The number 50 means GRACE. So in grace, through faith in Jesus Christ, these souls may enter the kingdom of heaven at a predetermined time by God. These souls are mentioned in Revelation 7:9-10   'After that I saw an innumerable multitude of people. They came from all races, peoples, tribes and language groups. They stood before the throne and before the Lamb, with white robes on and palm branches in their hands. They cried aloud, "Our salvation is from our God who sits on the throne, and from the Lamb!"

Daniel 12 prophesies about the end times. Depending on the translation, there is spoken about a time, two times and a half time, also about 3½ years and these numbers are also used in Revelation together with the number 1260. The number of 42 months also occurs. 42 months of 30 days = 1260 days. These 1260 days is the time of tribulation, the time when Enoch and Elijah descend to the earth, these are the two witnesses mentioned in Revelation 11. This is also the time when the sun woman is taken away and these souls are preserved for the 1000-year reign. How? I don't know, but that's how it says, so it's true. The 'sun woman' are the progenitors for the next generation of people, as are Noah's sons and daughters-in-law.

In Daniel 12:11 it is spoken of 1290 days. The end times began on December 16, 2019. Daniel (8:14) says that after 2300 days creation will be restored. The end time is a different concept than the time of tribulation. The restoration of creation will take place on April 3, 2026, so the time of tribulation will start 1,260 days earlier on October 21, 2022. On September 21, 2022, which is 1,290 days before Good Friday, April 3, 2026, the Day of Atonement will take place. This Day of Atonement – also literally on the calendar – is the Wheat Harvest!

Part 1 of the cave: These souls have taken their place in the first part of this cave and here is a part with a well, this part is for all the gifted ones. These are not just people who were believers at the time of their death, but also many who never had the chance to hear about Jesus' love and sacrifice of grace in their lifetime. Jesus himself initiated this in 1 Peter 3:18-22. He descended to the prisons where the people who died during the flood were kept.

This prophecy is mentioned by Daniel in chapter 12 verse 4 “But, Daniel, keep this prophecy secret. Seal up what you have written, until the time of the end. Many will delve into it, and they will gain much greater understanding of these matters.” This prophecy is being fulfilled before your very eyes.

The Grape Harvest

This harvest is at the end, so will take place during the end of the 1000-year reign. This harvest consists of many who disbelieve and yet have done many good works, of people who say they believe and act differently than one who truly believes would. This harvest is from all times, so from the moment of the Fall until the very last moment. So these are different from the ones taken up during the first two harvests. These souls reside in cave part 2, until the day of judgment.

1 Corinthians 3:11-18 'For no one can lay any foundation other than what has been laid down. That foundation is Jesus Christ. If anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay, or straw, each one’s work will become obvious. For the day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire; the fire will test the quality of each one’s work. If anyone’s work that he has built survives, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned up, he will experience loss, but he himself will be saved — but only as through fire. Don’t you yourselves know that you are God’s temple and that the Spirit of God lives in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him; for God’s temple is holy, and that is what you are. Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you thinks he is wise in this age, let him become a fool so that he can become wise. ' 

How thankful we should be that God does not have a character trait that expresses love, but that God is love! The whole being of God is love, only through His love and the grace of Jesus Christ is salvation possible, also for this group. We can read in the Revelations of Paul, but also in the Revelations of Peter what it is like when you are purified. Keep the goal in mind: “You yourself will be saved, but through the fire”. This is the only possibility to receive a place forever.

Summary of the moments.

  • Year 0: The Fall.
  • Year 2450 (50 Jubilees-Missed Grace-40 Years Add - Numbers 14:32-35).
  • Year 3920: Jesus starts His mission.
  • Year 5880 (1986) 120 Jubilees passed.
  • 40 years extended to 2026 - Start of the promised land (1000 year empire).
  • The Exodus was at Passover (Easter), the crucifixion was in the same month.
  • The 1000-year empire will therefore also start in the same month, at the beginning of April 2026.
  • December 16, 2019. 2300 days later = April 3, 2026.
    • The end time begins 2300 days before the start of the 1000-year reign (Dan. 8:14-19).
  • April 3, 2026. 1260 earlier is October 21, 2022.
    • The time of tribulation starts 1260 before the start of the 1000-year empire.
  • April 3, 2026. 1290 earlier is September 21, 2022.
    • On this day satan is set up and all who more or less believe in the sacrifice of Jesus are taken up through death (Dan. 12:11).
    • 14 days later 4/5 October 2022 is the Day of Atonement (the Wheat Harvest). All who carry Jesus in the heart may enter into the Heaven of the realm of the dead.

After the 1000-year reign, the present world will end and the New Heaven and the New Earth will be installed by God the Father. The New Heaven will have no end and is thus forever and ever. The New Earth will be renewed several times. The Earth always forms a redemption period for the fallen angels, this continues until the First fallen son - satan/lucifer - returns as the Last, see also the parable of the prodigal son.

Never no more misery, may always be in His love. Let's watch for that and let's keep in mind the words of Jesus (John 16:16).

Just a little while…. And then it will happen.
