We are living in a period before such judgement, a time where the bride has not yet made herself ready, a period of time where the body of Messiah is still in formation. This process began in Acts chapter 2 when the Holy Spirit descended on the disciples gathered in Jerusalem. They were gathered there as believing Jews who were observing the feast of Pentecost, 50 days after Yeshua was crucified as the Passover Lamb of God. Pentecost is the fourth feast, the middle feast.
The 7 feasts in Leviticus 23 are introduced with the mention of the 7 days of creation (6 days of work plus one day of rest, the Sabbath). So we see that the number 7 is related to 7 days of creation and the 7 feasts. So the purpose of the creation is related to the feasts of redemption. And Pentecost is at the centre of that purpose because it is the central feast.
Furthermore, the 50 days from Passover to Pentecost are made up of 7 lots of 7 weeks which equals 49 days plus one. Again the number 7 is emphasised.
There is an aspect of David in this Man Child, this New Man since David’s line contained Ruth the Moabitess who became his progenitor while gleaning during the harvest. The book of Ruth is read during Pentecost. So the New Man contains both David and Joseph and the Gentiles (Ruth). Thus both houses of Israel are present in the Man Child that rules with a rod of Iron. And the gentiles are there too as the remnant of her seed (Rev 12:17)
The counting of the Omer has 7 lots of 7 weeks which really emphasizes the number 7. There are 7 qualities that equip us for rulership with Messiah and these are listed here…
2 Peter 1:4-8 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 5 And beside this, giving all diligence,
add to your faith virtue;
and to virtue knowledge;
6 And to knowledge temperance;
and to temperance patience;
and to patience godliness;
7 And to godliness brotherly kindness;
and to brotherly kindness charity.
8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
PS. If the 4 cherubim represent the four encampments of Israel and the four gospels, then the 5th Cherub is the tabernacle itself which is the Church and was inaugurated by tongues of fire in Acts chapter 2. The Torah is being made flesh in the Church, the congregation of Israel that sits in the midst of the 12 tribes gathered around her. Her Man Child is the seed of the woman mentioned in Gen 3 and Rev 12 and this is what Pentecost is ultimately about, the bride and her son.
