[209] The 4 Mandatory Christian Festivals are the Christianisation of the 3 Mandatory Mosaic Festivals and how to celebrate the 2NC and Booths

Sealing covenant cups are drunk by all baptised into the test but the loaf is only eaten by those who know they are sealed - See below.

There are many scriptures such as Exodus 23, Exodus 34, Leviticus 23, Deuteronomy 16, Numbers 29, which describe the 3 annual festivals of the Law of Moses. These were the dual festival of the Passover and of cakes, the festival of weeks or Pentecost, and the festival of booths. But there are three scriptures which repeat the concept that the sons of Israel had to appear 3 times every year before Jehovah.

14 3 times in the year you are to celebrate a festival to me.
15 You will keep the festival of unfermented cakes. You will eat unfermented cakes 7 days, just as I have commanded you, at the appointed time in the month of Abib, because in it you came out of Egypt. And they must not appear before me empty-handed.
16 Also, the festival of harvest of the first ripe fruits of your labors, of what you sow in the field; and the festival of ingathering at the outgoing of the year, when you gather in your labors from the field.
17 On 3 occasions in the year every male of yours will appear before the face of the [true] Lord, Jehovah (Exodus 23).

23 3 times in the year every male of yours is to appear before the [true] Lord, Jehovah, [the] God of Israel.
24 For I shall drive the nations away from before you, and I will make your territory spacious; and nobody will desire your land while you are going up to see the face of Jehovah your God 3 times in the year (Exodus 34).

16 3 times in the year every male of yours should appear before Jehovah your God in the place that he will choose: in the festival of the unfermented cakes and in the festival of weeks and in the festival of booths, and none should appear before Jehovah empty-handed (Deuteronomy 16).

We know from the Power Principle of the bible code that every verse of the bible has power. So we are not merely being told the same thing 3 times here! We suspect that all 3 accounts are parallel laws, although we have not done much work on parallel accounts in the law of Moses yet! If so then there are 3 greater fulfilments to the 3 great festivals of the law.

Now the greater meaning of the 3 festivals of the Jews are 3 festival types of the Christians, for Jesus' Christianized the Passover.

So there are two other Christian festival types that we must find which are a greater Weeks/Pentecost and a greater Booths. Furthermore the 3 recitals of these 3 festivals above give us 3 different fulfilments of these 3 festivals in all 4 Christian churches. The Watchtower, did not fulfil them properly so we will find the fulfilments in FDS1, FDS2 and FDS4.

Jesus has shown us that the greater festival of the Passover is the celebration of various covenants. So we apply the same methodology to the other two festivals which will be celebrations of various Christian covenants.

The Festival of Booths celebrated the final gathering of all fruits, it was the final harvest festival of the year...

13 The festival of booths you should celebrate for yourself 7 days when you make an [end of season] ingathering from your threshing floor and your oil and winepress (Deuteronomy 16).

Pentecost was the festival of the firstfruits wheat harvest...  

22 And you will carry on your festival of weeks with the first ripe fruits of the wheat harvest, and the festival of ingathering at the turn of the year (Exodus 34).

Now Pentecost was effectively a daily Jubilee, being the day after 7 'weeks' or 7 Sabbaths of days or 7 Sabbaths after the first fruits of the barley harvest, which was Nisan16, when the first sickle was thrust into the standing grain (before Global warming). 50 days after Nisan16-22 is Sivan5-11 inclusively. This day had the first fruits of the wheat harvest, also called the first ripe fruits (which is a bit unfair to barley). Now Paul says:

20 However, now Christ has been raised up from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep [in death].
21 For since death is through a man, resurrection of the dead is also through a man.
22 For just as in Adam all are dying, so also in the Christ all will be made alive.
23 But each one in his own rank: Christ the firstfruits [all the sons of the 1NC], afterward those who belong to the Christ during his presence [the saints who belong to him during his presence but are resurrected outside of it perhaps!].
24 Next, the end, when he hands over the kingdom to his God and Father, when he has brought to nothing all government and all authority and power [at the end of the flood, when all the sons of Adam have died. These are the resurrections under the CRC and FRC into the Kingdom] (1 Corinthians 15).

14 For if our faith is that Jesus died and rose again, so, too, the [judicially living] ones [of us] who have fallen asleep [in death] God, through Jesus, will bring [to be] with him.
15 For this is what we tell you by [the] Lordís word, that we, the [ones] [judicially] living [those who have an indefinite future, i.e. those baptised in spirit. People who have been declared righteous in the flesh only have another 1,000 years for sure, and so are still 'dead'] the [ones] left around into the presence of the Lord [the descent of the saints to pick up the kids by rapture], shall in no way precede those who have fallen asleep [in death];
16
because the Lord himself will descend from heaven [into Hades] with a commanding call [to the 1NC saints in the first death, he commands them since they are his wife], with an archangel's voice [to individually rapture the non dying saints of the ELC, HLC and 2NC as they die. These are under the authority of the archangel, being his possessions. As their human bodies die, they are raptured so as not to see the first death which does not apply to them] and with God's trumpet [on earth at the manifestation of the presence, Jesus comes through the flesh of his descended wife, the 1NC saints,  to sort the sheep from the goats, also at the end of the first presence of Christ, since two angels said: men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky, the sheep are then raptured from Zoar], and those who are dead in union with Christ [the 1NC saints] will rise first.
17 Thereupon we the living who are left around together with/at the same time as/ them [the non dying saints], will be caught away in clouds [groups of saints in various raptured groups, perhaps daily or weekly or something, together with the 1NC saints are led up into heaven at the final rapture at the end of the manifestation] into a meeting of the Lord [Jesus himself in person] into [the] air [the real oxygen, the real life giving atmosphere, which is heavenly oxygen, which is God's love]; and thus we shall always be with [the] Lord 
18 Consequently keep comforting one another with these words (1 Thessalonians 4).

So the barley harvest is Jesus, the firstfruits and the 1NC saints are the first ripe fruits of Pentecost. For the first 1NC saints were sealed at Pentecost 33CE on 33Sivan5, and Jesus gave his angelic body to God on 33Nisan16.

Likewise there is a 2NC firstfruits on Tishri2, and a 2NC Pentecost, a 2NC first ripe fruits at Pentecost 50 days on Heshvan21 - see U200. We think that all saints are sealed at Pentecost being ripe fruits!...

10 Speak to the sons of Israel, and you must say to them, 'When you eventually come into the land that I am giving you, and you have reaped its harvest, you must also bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest to the priest.
11 And he must wave the sheaf to and fro before Jehovah to gain approval for you. Directly the day after the Sabbath the priest should wave it to and fro (Leviticus 23).

9 7 weeks you should count for yourself. From when the sickle is first put to the standing grain you will start to count 7 weeks (Deuteronomy 16).

Leviticus 23 and Deuteronomy 16 are parallel accounts of the festivals under law. Leviticus 23 is complete, whereas Deuteronomy 16 only has the 3 main festivals which it was binding upon the Jews to attend at Jerusalem. These were Cakes (including the Passover day), Weeks (Pentecost) and Booths including the solemn assembly festival. 

16 3 times in the year every male of yours should appear before Jehovah your God in the place that he will choose: in the festival of the unfermented cakes and in the festival of weeks and in the festival of booths, and none should appear before Jehovah empty-handed (Deuteronomy 16).

The greater meaning of Leviticus23 applies to the 1NC churches and the greater meaning of Deuteronomy 16 applies to the 2NC church, since it is the second law (that being the meaning of Deuteronomy).

So we know from Leviticus 23 that there is a greater festival of weeks calculated by a 50-count from day after the first Sabbath of the year, the Sabbath of cakes, Nisan15, in the case of the 1NC. So the count for the 1NC church runs from Nisan16-22 to Sivan5-11 as it did under law. But in the case of the 2NC all we know from Deuteronomy16 is that there is a 50 count which starts when the sickle of sealing is first put to the 2NC saints, the standing grain. This would be the day that the mediator of the 2NC was sealed or died. 

We had in the past postulated a calendar change for annual festivals to a Tishri1 year start, so that all festivals are shifted by 6 months. But really one cannot celebrate the Passover or cakes on the wrong day of the year so we have now rejected that idea. In any event the Jews and the LWs are still running both the Nisan1 and the Tishri1 year start calendars.

Now the 2NC church should celebrate the 2NC Pentecost and the 1NC Pentecost as well since Jesus' ransom for Adam affects us all. So the festivals of the 1NC church are as follows...

Passover (Nisan14 or Iyyar14)
Firstfruits (Nisan16)
Pentecost (Sivan5)
Trumpets (Tishri1)
Atonement (Tishri10)
Booths (Tishri15-21)

6/7 festivals in the year. Cakes is omitted because they have no 7 day greater escape from any greater Egypt. The sacred/solemn assembly occurs at the end of the harvest in the second church of a presence not in the first church of a presence so they do not celebrate that festival either. Whereas the festivals of the 2NC church are as follows...

Passover (Nisan14 or Iyyar14)
Firstfuits (Nisan16)
1NC Pentecost (Sivan5-11 Ransom day)
Trumpets (Tishri1)
2NC Firstfruits (Tishri2)
Atonement (Tishri10)
Booths (Tishri15-21)
2NC Pentecost (Heshvan21 First Ripe Fruits)

So the 3 main festivals for the 1NC church were Cakes (plus the Passover), Weeks (Sivan6 Pentecost) and Booths (plus solemn assembly)

And the 3 main festivals for the 2NC church are the Passover, 2NC weeks and Booths (plus solemn assembly). 

We Must Celebrate Pentecost

1 Now while the day [month] of the [festival of] Pentecost was in progress they were all together at the same place,
2 and suddenly there occurred from heaven a noise just like that of a rushing stiff breeze, and it filled the whole house in which they were sitting.
3 And tongues as if of fire became visible to them and were distributed about, and one sat upon each one of them,
4 and they all became filled with holy spirit and started to speak with different tongues, just as the spirit was granting them to make utterance.
5 As it was, there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, reverent men, from every nation of those under heaven.
6 So, when this sound occurred, the multitude came together and were bewildered, because each one heard them speaking in his own language.
7 Indeed, they were astonished and began to wonder and say: See here, all these who are speaking are Galileans, are they not?
8 And yet how is it we are hearing, each one of us, his own language in which we were born?
9 Parthians and Medes and Elamites, and the inhabitants of Mesopotamia, and Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and the [district of] Asia,
10 and Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya, which is toward Cyrene, and sojourners from Rome, both Jews and proselytes,
11 Cretans and Arabians, we hear them speaking in our tongues about the magnificent things of God.
12 Yes, they were all astonished and were in perplexity, saying one to another: What does this thing purport to be?
13 However, different ones mocked at them and began to say: They are full of sweet wine.
14 But Peter stood up with the 11 and raised his voice and made this utterance to them: Men of Judea and all you inhabitants of Jerusalem, let this be known to you and give ear to my sayings.
15 These [people] are, in fact, not drunk, as you suppose, for it is the 3rd hour of the day.
16 On the contrary, this is what was said through the prophet Joel,
17 'And in the last days, God says, I shall pour out some of my spirit upon every sort of flesh, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy and your young men will see visions and your old men will dream dreams;
18 and even upon my men slaves and upon my women slaves I will pour out some of my spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.

Tongues of fire and tongues speaking about the magnificent things of God are decoded understandings of Armageddon in the greater meaning or the descended 1NC angels themselves. The question was asked: What does this thing purport to be? The incorrect answer given was: They are full of sweet wine. This literally incorrect answer is therefore correct in the account symbolic meaning - see [Yes/No Questions]. So at the greater festival of Pentecost, we drink the sweet wine of some covenant. Not sure which. Perhaps it is a further glass of the ARC for the 1NCs and likewise for the 2NCs?? This would be because 1NC saints are first sealed on Sivan5-11 and 2NC saints are first sealed on Heshvan21.

Certainly the first century Christians did celebrate what must have been a Christianized form of Pentecost...

1 Now while the day of the [festival of] Pentecost was in progress they were all together at the same place (Acts 2).

16 For Paul had decided to sail past Ephesus, in order that he might not spend any time in the [district of] Asia; for he was
hastening to get to Jerusalem on the day of the [festival of] Pentecost if he possibly could (Acts 20).

8 But I am remaining in Ephesus until the [festival of] Pentecost (1 Corinthians 16).

Remember that Paul was not under law. Yet he still celebrated Pentecost. So what was he celebrating?? It must have been a greater Pentecost, a Christianized Pentecost, a festival to do with a Christian covenant. Paul recognized that the Christianized Passover was still a festival.

7 Clear away the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, according as you are free from ferment. For, indeed, Christ our Passover has been sacrificed.
8 Consequently let us keep the festival, not with old leaven, neither with leaven of badness and wickedness, but with unfermented cakes of sincerity and truth (1 Corinthians 5).

And he was used to celebrating 3 festivals a year not one. Furthermore he knew that the law had a shadow of the things to come. So it was a type for the greater Christian fulfilments...

16 Therefore let no man judge you in eating and drinking or in respect of a festival or of an observance of the new moon or of a Sabbath.
17 for those things are a shadow of the things to come, but the reality belongs to the Christ (Colossians 2).

Literally Paul was saying do not let anyone condemn you for not complying with any feature of the law of Moses, since Jesus died to end that law. But Paul was also literally saying that the law was a type in the case of eating, drinking, festivals, new moons and Sabbaths. The LWs now understand this. We celebrate a greater Sabbath system, with both daily and monthly Sabbaths (a Sabbath month every 7 months). We have the Biblical Lunar Calendar which governs our entire chronology through new moons. We eat and drink at our festivals, and now we have the 3 greater annual festival types and 4 greater mandatory annual festivals, 4 Christian covenant celebrations (The Passover, the 1NC Pentecost, the 2NC festival during Booths and the 2NC Pentecost)

Firstfruits, Nisan16, was the day that Michael gave his angel to God in ransom of Adam. This was the greater firstfruits since it first enabled mankind to get everlasting life and thereby become everlasting fruit. The first ripe fruits of this process occurred 50 days later at Pentecost 33CE, when the apostles were sealed in holy spirit, baptised into the name of the holy spirit, declared righteous in the spirit.

We know that the Alienation Times ended on 33Sivan5. We know too that Michael gave his angel to God on 33Nisan16. So Pentecost is the period between these two events. But what really ended the alienation between God and man?

Of course it was the ransom of Michael's angel for Adam. This therefore occurred on 33Sivan5, since the Alienation Times ended on that day - see U128.

So Pentecost is the celebration of the ransom of Michael for Adam which validated the ARC. It is the celebration of the blessing of that covenant which is everlasting angelic life. So sweet wine is a good idea and a bird roasted over tongues of fire would appear to be appropriate. But the ARC was not made on Sivan6, 50 days after Nisan16. It was made on Nisan14, when Adam sinned and was passed over.

We Must Celebrate Booths

Zechariah 14, show us that there is a greater festival of Booths to be celebrated. Many churches understand this chapter to have a fulfilment in the last days. None other than the LWs understand what the greater festival of Booths is (if we understand it correctly that is!).

1 Look! There is a day coming, belonging to Jehovah, and the spoil of you will certainly be apportioned out in the midst of you.
2 And I shall certainly gather all the nations against Jerusalem for the war; and the city will actually be captured and the houses be pillaged, and the women themselves will be raped. And half of the city must go forth into the exile; but as for the remaining ones of the people, they will not be cut off from the city.
3 And Jehovah will certainly go forth and war against those nations as in the day of his warring, in the day of fight.
4 And his feet will actually stand in that day upon the mountain of the olive trees, which is in front of Jerusalem, on the east, and the mountain of the olive trees must be split at its middle, from the sunrising and to the west. There will be a very great valley; and half of the mountain will actually be moved to the north, and half of it to the south (Zechariah 14)...

16 And it must occur [that], as regards everyone who is left remaining out of all the nations that are coming against Jerusalem,
they must also go up from year to year to bow down to the King, Jehovah of armies, and to celebrate the festival of the booths.
17 And it must occur that, as regards anyone that does not come up out of the families of the earth to Jerusalem to bow down to the King, Jehovah of armies, even upon them no pouring rain will occur.
18 And if the family of Egypt itself does not come up and does not actually enter, upon them also there shall be none. The scourge will occur with which Jehovah scourges the nations that do not come up to celebrate the festival of the booths.
19 This itself will prove to be the [punishment for the] sin of Egypt and the sin of all the nations that do not come up to celebrate
the festival of the booths (Zechariah 14). 

The Method of celebration for the greater Festival of Booths, the Last Breakfast, the Festival of the Second New Covenant

17 And Jacob pulled out for Succoth, and he proceeded to build himself a house and for his herd he made booths. That was why he called the name of the place Succoth (Genesis 33).

37 And the sons of Israel proceeded to depart from Rameses for Succoth, to the number of 600,000 able-bodied men on foot, besides little ones. (Exodus 12 NWT)
37 And the sons of Israel traveled from Rameses to Succoth, the men being about six hundred thousand on foot, apart from little ones. (Exodus 12 GLT)

34 Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, 'On the 15th day of this 7th month is the festival of booths for 7 days to Jehovah.
35
On the first day is a holy convention. No sort of laborious work may you do.
36
7 days you should present an offering made by fire to Jehovah. On the 8th day there should occur a holy convention for you, and you must present an offering made by fire to Jehovah. It is a solemn assembly. No sort of laborious work may you do.
37
'These are the seasonal festivals of Jehovah that you should proclaim as holy conventions, for presenting an offering made by fire to Jehovah: the burnt offering and the grain offering of the sacrifice and the drink offerings according to the daily schedule,
38
besides the Sabbaths of Jehovah and besides your gifts and besides all your vow offerings and besides all your voluntary offerings, which you should give to Jehovah.
39
However, on the 15th day of the 7th month, when you have gathered the produce of the land, you should celebrate the festival of Jehovah 7 days. On the first day is a complete rest and on the 8th day is a complete rest.
40
And you must take for yourselves on the first day the fruit of splendid trees [], the fronds of palm trees and the boughs of branchy trees [] and poplars of the torrent valley [], and you must rejoice before Jehovah your God 7 days.
41
And you must celebrate it as a festival to Jehovah 7 days in the year. As a statute to time indefinite during your generations, you should celebrate it in the 7th month.
42
It is in the booths you should dwell 7 days. All the natives in Israel should dwell in the booths,
43
in order that your generations may know that it was in the booths that I made the sons of Israel to dwell when I was bringing them out of the land of Egypt. I am Jehovah your God (Leviticus 23).

The fruit of splendid trees, the fronds of palm trees, the boughs of branch trees, and then poplars of the torrent valley. These trees represent different types of Christians. Brothers must prepare talks about research, about general spiritual battles they have won or are still fighting and about evangelism. Women cannot talk about research but can relate their victories or their evangelical insights. They can encourage but not teach. The whole thing lasts for 8 days, and the first and last days are Sabbaths, wherein one cannot sow or reap any food or do any laborious church work. Each congregation meets for the entire 8 days. So we party on the first and the last days, and we give talks from the 2nd to the 7th days. 

13 The festival of booths you should celebrate for yourself 7 days when you make an ingathering from your threshing floor [general congregation] and your oil [priests] and winepress [saints].
14
And you must rejoice during your festival, you and your son and your daughter and your man slave and your slave girl and the Levite and the alien resident and the fatherless boy and the widow, who are inside your gates.
15
7 days you will celebrate the festival to Jehovah your God in the place that Jehovah will choose, because Jehovah your God will bless you in all your produce and in every deed of your hand, and you must become nothing but joyful.
16
3 times in the year every male of yours should appear before Jehovah your God in the place that he will choose: in the festival of the unfermented cakes and in the festival of weeks and in the festival of booths, and none should appear before Jehovah empty-handed.
17
The gift of each one's hand should be in proportion to the blessing of Jehovah your God that he has given you.
18
You should set judges and officers for yourself inside all your gates that Jehovah your God is giving you by your tribes, and they must judge the people with righteous judgment (Deuteronomy 16).

1 And all the people proceeded to gather themselves as one man at the public square that was before the Water Gate. Then they said to Ezra the copyist to bring the book of the law of Moses, which Jehovah had commanded Israel.
2 Accordingly Ezra the priest brought the law before the congregation of men as well as of women and of all intelligent enough to listen, on the first day of the 7th month.
3 And he continued to read aloud from it before the public square that is before the Water Gate, from daybreak till midday, in front of the men and the women and the other intelligent ones; and the ears of all the people were [attentive] to the book of the law.
4 And Ezra the copyist kept standing upon a wooden podium, which they had made for the occasion; and there were standing alongside him Mattithiah and Shema and Anaiah and Uriah and Hilkiah and Maaseiah to his right hand, and at his left Pedaiah and Mishael and Malchijah and Hashum and Hash-baddanah, Zechariah [and] Meshullam.
5 And Ezra proceeded to open the book before the eyes of all the people, for he happened to be above all the people; and as he opened it all the people stood up.
6 Then Ezra blessed Jehovah the [true] God, the great One, at which all the people answered, Amen! Amen! with the lifting up of their hands. They then bowed low and prostrated themselves to Jehovah with [their] faces to the earth.
7 And Jeshua and Bani and Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodiah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, even the Levites, were explaining the law to the people, while the people were in a standing position.
8 And they continued reading aloud from the book, from the law of the [true] God, it being expounded, and there being a putting of meaning [into it]; and they continued giving understanding in the reading.
9 And Nehemiah, that is, the Tirshatha, and Ezra, the priest, the scribe, and the Levites who were instructing the people proceeded to say to all the people: This very day is holy to Jehovah your God. Do not mourn or weep. For all the people were weeping as they were hearing the words of the law.
10 And he went on to say to them: Go, eat the fatty things and drink the sweet things, and send portions to the one for whom nothing has been prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord [This is how to celebrate Tishri1] and do not feel hurt, for the joy of Jehovah is your stronghold.
11 And the Levites were ordering all the people to be silent, saying: Keep quiet! for this day is holy; and do not feel hurt.
12 So all the people went away to eat and drink and to send out portions and to carry on a great rejoicing, for they had understood the words that had been made known to them.
13 And on the second day the heads of the fathers of all the people, the priests and the Levites, gathered themselves together to Ezra the copyist, even to gain insight into the words of the law.
14 Then they found written in the law that Jehovah had commanded by means of Moses that the sons of Israel should dwell in booths during the festival in the 7th month,
15 and that they should make proclamation and cause a call to pass throughout all their cities and throughout Jerusalem, saying: Go out to the mountain [this is said because we quote Nehemiah, but by mountain we mean administration] and bring in olive leaves [] and the leaves of oil trees and myrtle leaves and palm leaves [] and the leaves of branchy trees [] to make booths [], according to what is written.
16 And the people proceeded to go out and bring [them] in and make booths for themselves, each one upon his own roof and in their courtyards and in the courtyards of the house of the [true] God and in the public square of the Water Gate and in the public square of the Gate of Ephraim []
17 Thus all the congregation of those who had come back from the captivity made booths and took up dwelling in the booths; for the sons of Israel had not done that way from the days of Joshua the son of Nun until that day, so that there came to be very great rejoicing.
18 And there was a reading aloud of the book of the law of the [true] God day by day, from the first day until the last day; and they went on holding the festival 7 days, and on the 8th day there was a solemn assembly, according to the rule (Nehemiah 8).

Mountain(1), Leaves(5)

Everyone must give a speech to the whole congregation, or make a joint presentation, or do a drama or a musical item. Everyone must get on the platform and give something to the church. No one must appear empty handed at the final assembly.

On Tishri15 there is a holy convocation. On Tishri22 there is an assembly, which is a different Hebrew word. A convocation is literally a calling together (con means with or together in latin and vox, vocem is voice). So we are called together on Tishri15 which is a festival Sabbath but we do not assemble until Tishri22 which is a festival Sabbath. What that means is that prior to Tishri22 we are dis - assembled. That is how we live in Booths. For our home is the congregation. So our Booth is our ONE PERSON CHURCH.

Gordon always wanted to institutionalize the one person church and now we have seen that God has already done that in the festival of Booths.

Therefore this festival is a celebration of the formation of this church and the method by which this church was founded. for Elijah4 was sent off my Jesus through Massoud to research the bible only with his own mind not with the mind of the governing body of the Watchtower. This was the first Cakes/Booths. 

Imagine an Israelite lived 3 days away from Jerusalem. He would celebrate Booths 4 days at home and then travel to Jerusalem on the last 3 days of Booths sleeping in his mobile Booth. Then he would assemble before the face of Jehovah at the temple on Tishri22, the Assembly.

BUT it is the Solemn Assembly. It is not the formal assembly. It is simply the assembly, or atsarah in Hebrew. Which looks fat too much like At Sarah, the princess, who stands for Jerusalem above according to Paul in Galatians4.

So the church congregation disassembles for 7 days and then re-assembles on the 8th. So each individual member of the church disassembles his understanding of the scriptures and of church doctrine for 7 days and re-assembles it bringing his offering on the 8th day. 

All this must be done without reference to written or web LW doctrine or any other written church doctrine since Booths is coincident with Cakes. So you can write down what is in your head, but do not look up any more church doctrine for 7 days. Since church teachings are leaven - from any church. This will apply at the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Watchtower Cakes/Booths.

The idea is to reassess what you have grasped of church doctrine and of the scriptures. It is not to learn more doctrine. The idea is to reassess what you have got, to make sure it is not garbage. 

Now this stuff is obvious and basic to baptized LWs. But there are almost none of us. Everyone else will find this to be revelatory. For they do not believe that they can work anything out from the scriptures for themselves. They believe they have to consult an expert in the form of their priest. .

This is the antidote to idolatry of the priesthood and especially to the Watchtower. who put the bible in front of you but teach that you personally cannot interpret it. 

Booths is the festival of YOUR PERSONAL BIBLE INTERPRETATION. And God needed a festival to get that message through. Such has been the success of Satan.

1 He tried preventing the bible from being translated into English and killing anyone who had a translation.

2. He nationalized the King James bible and provided it himself but persuaded people that God was a mystery they could never understand.

3. He corrupted the 3rd true church who spend all day reading the bible, by persuading them that only some blind and deaf old control freaks in the Watchtower governing body could ever interpret it correctly - So reading it was pointless other than to confirm Watchtower understanding. This is the Watchtower channel doctrine.

What will happen at these festivals is that God will reveal to the babes what he has withheld form the wise old LWs. This then is how mankind will decoded the bible. Through the brilliant research which is yet to be done by millions of spiritual babes.

Cups and Covenants

There are 3 covenants that the LWs need to celebrate on a festival other than the Passover. These are the 2NC, the 4EC and the CRC. The 2NC meal does not represent the sacrificial food of the law (lamb or goat) or the non sacrificial Christian food of the churches (fish), since these are both eaten at the New Passover. So it must be vegetarian food, the food of the Kingdom. In fact LW church food is all about the chronology and morality of the Kingdom of God. 

The FRC and ARC are drunk before the meal in the case of the Passover because the ARC and the 3BC were made on 3993Nisan14 BC between God and Michael and Adam. Adam sacrificed two animals on 3993Nisan14, as Abel did the day he died. The one animal was for the 3BC and the second was for the 1BC that was yet to be made between Melchizedek and Adam. the 1BC would have been made on some Nisan14 after Jared had appeared. The cup of the 1AC, which was made, in the sense of validated, on 1943Nisan14, when Abraham crossed the Euphrates into greater Canaan, is drunk with the meal because Abraham was at the meal through his genetic sons. The the cup of the 1NC is drunk after the meal because the covenant was made by Jesus after the 00meal. Actually the ARC should be drunk first since that covenant was made first (we have now amended U15 to reflect that)..

So system covenants are celebrated upon the day that the subcovenant was made.

All mandatory annual festivals involve the drinking of a cup of a salvation covenant. A mandatory annual festival is an occasion for drinking a salvation cup.

So one drinks the blood of the 1NC which is the blood of the JAC on Nisan14. And one drinks the blood of the 2NC which is also the blood of the JAC on Tishri22.

But when does one drink the blood of the 1EC/2EC/3EC/4EC and the blood of the CRC?

We presently think that the 2NC was made between Jacob (who is alive on Eden2) and Gordon on 1987Tishri22. Although Gordon only found out about this through scripture and did not know the date at the time. This was the (Solemn) Assembly day after Booths. It is when the woman bent double of Luke 13 came into existence in accordance with the pattern of the 4th true Christian Church - see U42. We have to celebrate the 4EC/ICC, the 2NC and the CRC on mandatory festival days i.e. either during Booths from Tishri15-21 or on the 1NC Pentecost on Sivan5-11 or at the 2NC Pentecost on Heshvan21. It cannot be the case that we celebrate all 3 covenants on the same day of Booths (which would agree with the pattern of the 4 cups of the Passover), because we would then have nothing to drink at either of the two Pentecosts. One drinks the cup of the system covenant on the date of the subcovenant - because the blood of the subcovenant is the blood of the system covenant which is the blood of the validation sacrifice for the system mediator. For example, the blood of the 1NC is the blood of the JAC. Likewise we drink the cup of the ICC on the date of the 3EC which was Heshvan21 when Charles Russell was baptized as Elijah3. We would also drink the blood of the 4EC on that day, which is the 2NC Pentecost. 

The 1NC and 2NC Pentecost are both festival Sabbaths. One can make a salvation covenant on those days, since they are rests from secular works, not sacred works. One cannot make a salvation covenant on a weekly Sabbath however, which is a rest from all works - since a covenant is a commitment by two parties and a Sabbath is a release. So one can celebrate a salvation covenant on a festival Sabbath. For one celebrates a covenant upon the day it was made.  

The meal of the 2NC cannot be fish or sacrificial food since these are consumed at the Passover. So it must be vegetarian pointing forward to the Kingdom. The final harvest of course occurs during the Kingdom of God. In any event we have actually been in the Kingdom of God since 2008Nisan22. 

FDS1 did drink wine at the 1NC Pentecost, gleukoj being the Greek word, meaning sweet wine or new wine. 

12 Yes, they were all astonished and were in perplexity, saying one to another: What does this thing purport to be? [a fire sign]
13 However, different ones mocked at them and began to say: They are full of sweet wine (gleukoj).
14 But Peter stood up with the 11 and raised his voice and made this utterance to them: Men of Judea and all you inhabitants of Jerusalem, let this be known to you and give ear to my sayings.
15 These [people] are, in fact, not drunk, as you suppose, for it is the 3rd hour of the day. (Acts 2 NWT)

The clear implication being that were it to be later in the day then they might indeed have been drunk. So they were certainly drinking wine at the Pentecost. But the apostles had handled their wine. They had passed their sanctification test and had been sealed into the ARC. They were in that sense full of holy spirit, full of wine. Peter did not deny that the apostles were full of wine. He denied that they were drunk from that wine. But the physical wine that they were drinking was not the wine of the 1NC or the ARC which cups are drunk at the Passover. It was either the 1EC or the CRC. But which? Well the sweetest wine for a human is an indefinitely lasting non ageing body. That is the CRC. So they were both filled with Holy Spirit, sealed into the ARC, and they were filled with sweet wine (gleukoj), sealed into the CRC.

Salvation festivals are feasts - both are the same word in Hebrew. So we must have food at the Pentecost. We have lamb and fish at the Passover and we have vegetarian food at the 2NC festival. So we are left with birds, air food, food of the heavens, angelic food, for the Pentecosts. In fact it goes CRC, then ICC, with food, because the CRC was made before the ICC, and the bird for the 1NC Pentecost is the 2nd Holy Spirit and the bird for the 2NC Pentecost is the 3rd Holy Spirit. We eat from the bird and the holy spirit is poured out at Pentecost. The Passover lamb is the teaching of the Christ as a human from Enoch to Jesus. So the ARC and the FRC precede those teachings but the 1AC came into force during the period of those teachings.

Also a lamb and a bird are sacrificial foods and both Jesus and all the members of the 3rd Holy Spirit (the 1NC saints) all died sacrificially. Perhaps the angelic members of the 2nd Holy Spirit also die the angelic first death sacrificially?

Whereas the fish course which comes after the 1NC cup is non sacrificial food (For Moses never prescribed the offering up of any fish to Jehovah). It is the food of the church. Then finally the vegetarian meal of the 2NC festival is the Kingdom Doctrine and law constructed by the 2NC church, the LWs. It represents the spiritual food of the Kingdom. It is a non sacrificial and killing-free food, the physical type of food that we shall eat in the Kingdom.

FDS1 should have drunk the ARC, FRC, 1AC and 1NC on Nisan14, then the CRC on Sivan5-11 (a festival anniversary but not necessarily a true anniversary), then the 1EC on Heshvan21, 3x a year, 3 mandatory festivals each with a salvation cup. 
FDS3 should have drunk the ARC, FRC, 1AC and 1NC on Nisan14, then the CRC on Sivan5-11, then the 3EC on Heshvan21, 3x a year, 3 mandatory festivals each with a salvation cup. 
FDS4 should have drink the ARC, FRC, 1AC and 1NC on Nisan14, then CRC on Sivan5-11, then the 2NC on Tishri22, then the 4EC on Heshvan21, 3x a year, 3 mandatory festivals each with a salvation cup.

14 3 feet/footsteps [lg<r<] in the year you are to celebrate a festival to me.
15 You will keep the festival of unfermented cakes. You will eat unfermented cakes 7 days, just as I have commanded you, at the appointed time in the month of Abib, because in it you came out of Egypt. And they must not appear before me empty-handed.
16 Also, the festival of harvest of the first ripe fruits of your labors, of what you sow in the field; and the festival of ingathering at the outgoing of the year, when you gather in your labors from the field.
17 On 3 occasions/paces/strikes/times [~[;P] in the year every male of yours [who is registered - women could not be registered] will appear to the face of the [true] Lord, Jehovah.
18 You must not sacrifice along with what is leavened the blood of my sacrifice. And the fat of my festival should not stay overnight until morning [Not merely of my Passover festival but of my festival]. (Exodus 23 NWT)

20 And he added: You are not able to see my face, because no man may see me and yet live. (Exodus 33 NWT)

So the face of Jehovah is not his literal face. It is his symbolic face, which is the priesthood presumably.
23 3 times/paces [~[;P] in the year every male of yours is to appear before the [true] Lord, Jehovah, the God of Israel.
24 For I shall drive the nations away from before you, and I will make your territory spacious; and nobody will desire your land while you are going up to see the face of Jehovah your God 3 times [~[;P] in the year
25 You must not slaughter along with what is leavened the blood of my sacrifice. And the sacrifice of the festival of the Passover should not stay overnight until the morning. (Exodus 34 NWT).

16 3 times/paces [~[;P] in the year every male of yours should appear before Jehovah your God in the place that he will choose: in the festival of the unfermented cakes and in the festival of weeks and in the festival of booths, and none should appear before Jehovah empty-handed. (Deuteronomy 16 NWT)

12 It was then that Solomon offered up burnt sacrifices to Jehovah upon the altar of Jehovah that he had built before the porch
13
even as a daily matter of course to make offerings according to the commandment of Moses for the Sabbaths and for the new moons and for the appointed festivals 3 times/paces [~[;P] in the year, at the festival of unfermented cakes and at the festival of the weeks and at the festival of the booths. (2 Chronicles 8 NWT)

At every one of the 3 mandatory festivals of the law (Passover/Cakes, Weeks and Booths) sacrifices were made. There was indeed no festival under law which did not involve an animal sacrifice. Now we remember that Paul says...

1 For since the Law has a shadow of the good things to come, but not the very substance of the things, [men] can never with the same sacrifices from year to year which they offer continually make those who approach perfect.
2 Otherwise, would the [sacrifices] not have stopped being offered, because those rendering sacred service who had been cleansed once for all time would have no consciousness of sins anymore?
3 To the contrary, by these sacrifices there is a reminding of sins from year to year,
4 for it is not possible for the blood of bulls and of goats to take sins away.
5 Hence when he comes into the world he says: 'Sacrifice and offering you did not want, but you prepared a body for me.
6 You did not approve of whole burnt offerings and sin [offering].'
7 Then I said, 'Look! I am come in the roll of the book it is written about me to do your will, Oh God.'
8 After first saying: You did not want nor did you approve of sacrifices and offerings and whole burnt offerings and sin [offering] -- [sacrifices] that are offered according to the Law --
9 then he actually says: Look! I am come to do your will. He does away with what is first that he may establish what is second. (Hebrews 10 NWT)

The good things to come are Christian festivals. These are what is second and the Law is what is first. The law did not have the substance of what was to replace it. For all of its sacrifices were archetypical and symbolic and themselves caused no salvation to man. For the justice of God is human soul for human soul, not the soul of a goat for the soul of a man. Whereas the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and the other validation sacrifices directly cause salvation for those in the covenant mediated by the mediators who are ransomed by those validation sacrifices. Now we know that we should celebrate not only a great Passover (the Lord's Evening Meal) and a greater Pentecost (following the account of the Christian Pentecost in Acts2 on 33Sivan5 after the law had ended). But Paul is saying to us that every festival of the law is archetypical. They are all first to what is second. So we must celebrate a greater Booths as well. 

Now none were to turn up empty handed to a festival of Moses. for then there would be no sacrifice to celebrate. And likewise none should turn up empty handed to a festival of Christianity, for them there would be no salvation sacrifice celebrated through the cup and the loaf both of which are taken into the hands of the partakers at the festival.  Everybody at every festival must take a cup and a loaf. In fact you have the blood and the body of the sacrifice in your hands through the blessing on the emblems.

But there is one further subtlety easily missed. That is the terrible King James-itis infecting all of the translations of the '3 times' above (GLT and YLT are no better). The Hebrew word used does not mean time, it means footstep. Now if you make 3 steps then you travel between 4 points. You foot is in contact with the ground 4x. And that contact is a festival. So there are 4x in the year separated by 3 steps that a Christian should appear before Jehovah and not empty handed. That makes 4 festivals separated by period when the foot is in the air and not in touch with the ground. So these are Passover/Cakes, then the 1NC Pentecost, then Booths, then the 2NC Pentecost.

So really Exodus23:14 says that 3 feet in the year you are to celebrate a festival to me. That is 3 festival feet which feet are Passover/Cakes, Pentecost and Booths. Yet the Passover is a festival of unfermented cakes. So arguably you turn up 3x but celebrate 4 festivals namely the Passover, then we step forward to Cakes, then we step forward to Pentecost, then we step forward to Booths.

Furthermore the Hebrew word for feast and festival actually means to go around in a circle. For Hebrews would dance around in circle holding hands. Whereas at the Christian festival one passes the cup around in a circle either clockwise (for the flesh) or anticlockwise (for the spirit), from hand to hand. 

Furthermore since every festival under law had an animal sacrifice, then every festival of Christianity must have a greater sacrifice. But what is that greater sacrifice? Well Jesus has shown us in the came of the last supper. It is the drinking of the cup and the eating of the bread of a salvation covenant. It is a an annual celebration of a salvation covenant for which a sacrifice has been or is promised to be made. 

The key scripture here is Exodus23:18, which tells us that there should be no leaven with the blood of a sacrifice and no fat of a festival should be left over until morning. In direct contrast to Exodus34:25 It does not say no fat of the Passover lamb should be left over. It says no fat of the festival should be left over.

So we essentially do with the 1NC Pentecost and with the 2NC Pentecost and with Booths, what Jesus did with the Passover. We christianize them. We drink the wine of the blood of the relevant salvation covenant and eat the unleavened bread of the body of the validation sacrifice of the relevant salvation covenant and we have a feast, a meal, appropriate to the festival. Jesus showed us the way on 33Nisan14 and no one listened to him or followed at all in the second presence. Yes we celebrate the Passover in remembrance of Jesus. But we also celebrate the 1NC Pentecost, the 2NC Pentecost and Booths in remembrance of their respective validation sacrifices and mediators.

3 paces involves 4 feet being in contact with the ground. That is 20 festival days. These could be Nisan14, Nisan15-21, 1NC Pentecost, Tishri1, Tishri10, Tishri15-22, Heshvan21.

'You' (men + women) had to celebrate 3/4 festivals a year but every male (registered) should appear before Jehovah or before the face of Jehovah (the priesthood) 3x/4x in a year. So registered men had to be seen to be there and were judged if they were not. Whereas women would do what they were told by their men and so would not need to appear before the priesthood. Today women do not do what their men tell them to do as a matter of course. So today all who are baptized into the relevant covenant (registered) have to turn up before the priesthood. For all must celebrate the relevant salvation covenant. The registration into the army of Israel under law has now become the baptism into a salvation covenant in the true church. So every registered one not being empty handed is now every covenanted one holding the emblems of that covenant. 

The 4 Greater Passover feasts are the ICC, CRC, 2NC and New Passover celebrations

3 parallel accounts of drinking of cups and eating of loaves at the Passover in the Gospels and the further account in 1Corinthians11 all combine for the literal meaning but give 4 greater festivals which combine to make a whole picture. These 4 greater festivals are the 1NC Pentecost, the 2NC Pentecost, the Booths celebration of the 2NC and 3NC cups and the 9 new Passovers (all of which are the same in festival terms)?

20 Upon [implied epi] evening/late having come [i.e. once the sun had set. i.e. during the evening rather than the morning part of the day], he was reclining at the table with the 12 disciples [tribes of the 2NC apostles. He was eating the Passover meal, which is taken not at sunset but at Hebrew midnight ľ day later. The ICC cup is drunk at sunset though by the ambiguity principle because upon evening having come could mean at sunset. At sunset they slaughter the lamb and then skin it and the roast it whole - which takes 5 hours at least].
21 While they were eating, he said: Truly I say to you, One of you will betray me.
22 Being very much grieved at this, they commenced each and every one to say to him: Lord, it is not I, is it?
23 In reply he said: He that dips his hand with me in the bowl is the one that will betray me.
24 True, the Son of man is going away, just as it is written concerning him, but woe to that man through whom the Son of man is betrayed! It would have been finer for him if that man had not been born.
25 By way of reply Judas, who was about to betray him, said: It is not I, is it, Rabbi? He said to him: You yourself said [it].
26 As they continued eating [but not reclining because they stood up for the blessing], Jesus took a loaf and, after saying a blessing, he broke it and, giving it to the disciples, he said: take you [it], eat you [it]. This is my body [Isaac's body which was actually possessed by Michael who was Jesus].
27 Also, he took a cup [of the ICC. The 1EC or the 3EC for a 1NC church at a 1NC Pentecost and the 2EC or the 4EC for a ELC/HLC/2NC church at the ELC/HLC/2NC Pentecost] and, having given thanks, he gave it to them, saying: Drink out of it, all of you;
28 for this is my 'blood of the covenant,' which is to be poured out in behalf of many [all true Christians] for forgiveness of sins [by water baptism].
29 But I tell you, I will by no means drink henceforth any of this product of the vine [the cup of the ICC, the vine is the whole salvation plan, with 3 branches, being the 3 master salvation covenants] until that day when I drink it new with you [plural] in the kingdom of my Father [That day being 2016VeAdar14, the 1st Watchtower Passover].
30 Finally, after singing praises, they went out to the Mount of Olives [starting a priestly administration at a Pentecost?] (Matthew 26).

17 Upon [implied epi] evening/late having come [i.e. after the sun had set], he came with the 12 [He came at sunset to the Passover house for the festival - between the two evenings, the evening of the 24 hour day and the evening of the 12 hour day in fact - between sunset and darkness].
18 And [temporal disconnect] as they were reclining at the table and eating [literally at Hebrew Midnight] [symbolically any time after sunset and before the next sunset - actually not during the evening but during the morning by the Ambiguity Principle], Jesus said: Truly I say to you, One of you, who is eating with me, will betray me.
19 They started to be grieved and to say to him one by one: It is not I, is it?
20 He said to them: It is one of the 12, who is dipping with me into the common bowl.
21 True, the Son of man is going away, just as it is written concerning him, but woe to that man through whom the Son of man is betrayed! It would have been finer for that man if he had not been born.
22 And as they continued eating [but not reclining because they stood up for the blessing], he took a loaf [of the CRC], said a blessing, broke it and gave it to them, and said: Take you [it], this is my body [not commanded to eat and not said to eat - this loaf of the CRC is not eaten it is merely passed to and fro like at the Watchtower memorial. In fact this is true for all sealing covenant loaves, since one normally does not know if one has been sealed. Methuselah was the son of Enoch who was Michael. So Methuselah's body was in the house of body of Enoch].
23 And taking a cup [of the CRC], he offered thanks and gave it to them, and they all drank out of it [yes but they were not said to ALL eat, for in the greater meaning only the blessor eats, since he must be in the CRC, and the emblem must be consumed].
24 And he said to them: This is my 'blood of the covenant,' which is to be poured out in behalf of many [all true Christians who are sealed in the flesh into the CRC - all who pass their water baptism test - all who keep the law of the church or repent when they do not].
25 Truly I say to you, I shall by no means drink anymore of the product of the vine [the blood of a sealing covenant. This refers to the cup CRC] until that day [2016Ab5 the Zoar non adamic Pentecost or 2016Tishri5, the late Zoar non adamic Pentecost. The LWs actually did drink the CRC on 2016Ab5 and on 2016Tishri5. We had earlier attempted to drink the CRC at the late 1NC Pentecost on 2015Tammuz11 - that would not have worked! We did celebrate the Zoar Pentecost on 2015Tishri5 and 2015Heshvan5 and drank a cup which we may have blessed to be the correct one not knowing which one that was at the time. the correct festival for the CRC is the Zoar non adamic Pentecost on Ab5] when I drink it new in the kingdom of God [not said to be with you].
26 Finally, after singing praises, they went out to the Mount of Olives [starting a priestly administration at a Pentecost?] (Mark 14)

If you drink the sealing cup but do not eat the loaf then you drink upon an empty stomach from an emblematic standpoint and therefore could be said to be drunk or full of sweet wine as was the accusation at the 1NC Pentecost in 33Sivan5.

12 And that [man] will show you a large upper room [for saints] furnished. Get [it] ready there.
13 So they departed and found it just as he had said to them, and they got the Passover ready.
14 At length when the hour came, he reclined at the table, and the apostles with him.
15 And he said to them: I have greatly desired to eat this Passover [] with you before I suffer;
16 for I tell you, I will not eat it again until it becomes completed [plhrwqh] [when the last 6,000 1NC reserves come in on 2016VeAdar14 and 2017Nisan14 and 2017Iyyar14, and eat the completed meal which includes the final course of the post sacrificial vegetarian or fish Christian food] in the kingdom of God.
17 And, taking-with-the-hand/grasping a cup [dexomai] [the cup of the ARC or the cup of the FRC - for the 5th time in the year of 2016?], he gave thanks and said: Take this and pass it from one to the other among yourselves;
18 for I tell you, From now on I will not drink again from the product of the vine [of any sealing covenant. This refers to the cup of the ARC or the FRC] until the kingdom of God arrives.
19 Also, he took a loaf, gave thanks, broke it, and gave it to them, saying: This is my body [of the ARC] which is to be given in your behalf [not many but you]. Keep doing this in remembrance of me [keep giving thanks for, breaking and eating the loaf of the ARC in remembrance of me, for the ARC was truly the loaf of Michael's body, and breaking it is his death as an angel. But more generally, keep giving thanks for, breaking and eating all the food of the Passover, the meal and the 4 loaves].
20 Also, the cup in the same way after they had the evening meal, he saying: This cup is the new covenant [the cup of the 1NC] by virtue of my blood [not my blood, but by virtue of my blood], which is to be poured out in your behalf [this may also mean that the cup is poured out but not drunk for a period. If there is no 1NC saint present, the cup should still be poured out!!].
21 But, look! the hand of my betrayer is with me at the table.
22 Because the Son of man is going his way according to what is marked out; all the same, woe to that man through whom he is betrayed!
23 So they started to discuss among themselves the question of which of them would really be the one that was about to do this.
24 However, there also arose a heated dispute among them over which one of them seemed to be greatest.
25 But he said to them: The kings of the nations lord it over them, and those having authority over them are called Benefactors.
26 you, though, are not to be that way. But let him that is the greatest among you become as the youngest, and the one acting as chief as the one ministering.
27 For which one is greater, the one reclining at the table or the one ministering? Is it not the one reclining at the table? But I am in your midst as the one ministering.
28 However, you are the ones that have stuck with me in my trials;
29 and I make a covenant with you, just as my Father has made a covenant with me, for a kingdom,
30 that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones to judge the 12 tribes of Israel.
31 Simon, Simon, look! Satan has demanded to have you men to sift you as wheat.
32 But I have made supplication for you that your faith may not give out; and you, when once you have returned, strengthen your brothers.
33 Then he said to him: Lord, I am ready to go with you both into prison and into death.
34 But he said: I tell you, Peter, A cock will not crow today until you have 3 times denied knowing me.
35 He also said to them: When I sent you forth without purse and food pouch and sandals, you did not want for anything, did you? They said: No!
36 Then he said to them: But now let the one that has a purse take it up, likewise also a food pouch; and let the one having no sword sell his outer garment and buy one.
37 For I tell you that this which is written must be accomplished in me, namely, 'And he was reckoned with lawless ones.' For that which concerns me is having an accomplishment.
38 Then they said: Lord, look! here are 2 swords. He said to them: It is enough.
39 On going out he went as customarily to the Mount of Olives; and the disciples also followed him (Luke 22).

We also have the account by Paul in 1 Corinthians 11. Paul himself only understood the loaf of the 1NC and the cup of the 1NC at the time he wrote this letter. But his words are of course inspired...

18 For first of all, when you come together in a congregation, I hear divisions exist among you; and in some measure I believe it.
19 For there must also be sects among you, that the persons approved may also become manifest among you []
20 Therefore, when you come together to one place, it is not possible to eat the Lord's evening meal.
21 For, when you eat [it], each one takes his own evening meal beforehand, so that one is hungry but another is intoxicated [especially in the case of a sealing covenant where one is hungry and intoxicated at the same time due to the emblem consumption protocol. Some are hungry because some do not eat the loaf. Some are intoxicated because some do not eat the loaf and therefore drink upon an empty stomach from an emblematic standpoint].
22 Certainly you do have houses for eating and drinking, do you not? [Yes, the houses of the 1NC, 2NC and 3NC? The testing covenants are for eating and drinking the sealing covenants are for drinking only. They are therefore not a house for both eating and drink - they are a house for drinking on an empty stomach]  Or do you despise the congregation of God and make those who have nothing ashamed? What shall I say to you? Shall I commend you? In this I do not commend you. (1 Corinthians 11 NWT).

23 For I received from the Lord that which I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which he was going to be handed over took a loaf [],
24 and, after giving thanks, he broke it and said: This is my body which is in your behalf. Keep doing this in remembrance of me [].
25 He did likewise respecting the cup also, after he had the evening meal, saying: This cup is the new covenant by virtue of my blood. Keep doing this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me [].
26 For as often as you eat this loaf [] and drink this cup [], you keep proclaiming the death of the Lord [], until he arrives [].
27 Consequently whoever eats the loaf or drinks the cup of the Lord [] unworthily will be guilty respecting the body and the blood of the Lord [].
28 First let a man approve himself after scrutiny [], and thus let him eat of the loaf and drink of the cup.
29 For he that eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment against himself if he does not discern the body [So do not eat a sealing covenant loaf!].
30 That is why many among you are weak and sickly, and quite a few are sleeping [in death].
31 But if we would discern what we ourselves are, we would not be judged.
32 However, when we are judged, we are disciplined by Jehovah, that we may not become condemned with the world.
33 Consequently, my brothers, when you come together to eat [it], wait for one another.
34 If anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, that you may not come together for judgment [So this meal is not to be eaten at home, but when the congregation all comes together, the congregation being the greater family. The hunger is not for the bread of the emblems first century Christians were not that aspiritual. It was for the lovely roasting Passover lamb itself. If one ate some of that before the first cup then one ruined the festival for oneself. This statement proves that at least one cup and loaf were taken before the meal]. But the remaining matters I will set in order when I get there [when Jesus arrives he will fix some other mistakes we are making in this celebration]. (1 Corinthians 11).

The 2NC Pentecost is celebrated upon the date the Russell and Ritchie and John and Paul were water baptized from heaven as Elijah's. The flesh that was to carry the spirit of Jesus in the first presence entered into the world 30 years prior to his possession of Immanuel on 29Tishri10. We are not sure whether the first presence began on 29Tishri10 or on 29Heshvan21 the first day after the 40 whole days in the wilderness. The flesh that was to carry Jesus entered into the world for the second presence when Charles Russell was baptized from heaven as Elijah3 on the same day of the year  - 1884Heshvan21 - see U42. So the day of that baptism is the day that the Elijah covenant is made. So the 3EC is celebrated on Heshvan21. So all the Elijah covenants are celebrated on Heshvan21, which is the date of the 2NC Pentecost. The CRC is celebrated at the 1NC Pentecost. 

The meal for the ICC is roast beef, because priests were installed with a Bull and the ICC is your installation as a priest. Also Elijah's prove their tenacity with a Bull. It represents the food produced by the Elijah.
The meal of the 2NC/3NC must end before the 2NC. So it was the food of the 1NC churches, perhaps two doves, one for each presence. Michael was pictured as a dove after all. FDS4 is built upon the foundation of Charles Russell and FDS3. This is the food of Jesus in the form of his human fiance
The meal for the Passover is lamb, which represents the food of the human ministries of Michael, which food ended before the cup of the 1NC was drunk on 33Nisan14. 
The meal for the CRC is again 2 doves or clean birds, since it represents the food of the holy spirit (2nd or 3rd) which was available in the days of Methuselah and is still available today. Hence we eat that meal whilst drinking the cup of the CRC.  

The Greater Feast of Trumpets

The is also a gospel account of he Passover at John13. But this account has no record of any cup or loaf. So this would be a festival celebrating a covenant that does not apply to us. We think it may be the celebration of the Sacrifice that God made for Satan to end the first angelic death - see U264a. for God invented sacrifice and we should all honour that. Indeed there is one annual festival that we have yet to Christianize - namely the feast of Trumpets. Now God made his sacrifice for Archadam who was Satan at the beginning of space time - before there was any earth and so before there were any days months or years. So the correct day to celebrate his sacrifice would be the first day of the year. Now the festival years begin in Nisan. Whereas the first 4 verses of John13 are...

1 Now, because he knew before the festival of the Passover that his hour had come for him to move out of this world to the Father, Jesus, having loved his own that were in the world, loved them to the end. (John 13 NWT)
2 So, while the evening meal was going on, the Devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, to betray him,
3 he, knowing that the Father had given all things into [his] hands and that he came forth from God and was going to God,
4 got up from the evening meal and laid aside his outer garments. And, taking a towel, he girded himself (John13).

So this must be a description of the greater feast of trumpets on Tishri1. This relates to a sacrifice made before the Passover of Adam. We shall celebrate the 1HSC covenant on Tishri1 - the start of the ancient year. No emblems can be blessed or eaten since no one in the church is clean to ask such a blessing. We eat roast beef and roast lamb and roast chicken since Jehovah's sacrifice for Archadam is the archetype and the pattern for all subsequent sacrifices. It is an evening meal. No leaven of course. The priest of the 1NC Pentecost must be sealed into the CRC so must be an ex JW. So the 5th annual festival is as follows...

Festival Date Late Date Cups before meal Cup during meal Meal at Sunset Cup after meal Final course
Trumpets Tishri1 n/a None None Beef None None

The first sacrifices of Adam lead to long garments of skin. So sheep and goats would have been too small. So it must have been a bull. The sacrifice to install a high priest was a bull. So really the animal that symbolises the first sacrifice would be a Bull we think. Just as the lamb at the Passover stands for the sacrificial part of the Abrahamic era food, so the bull would stand for pre world, 1HSC food - all the understandings we have of things prior to Adam's sin. These are in Intro5 and U264a and U300.

The Grain Offering and the Drink Offering prefigure the Bread and the Wine at the Christian festivals

16 'And in the first month, on the 14th day of the month, will be Jehovah's Passover.
17 And on the 15th day of this month will be a festival. 7 days unfermented cakes will be eaten.
18 On the first day there will be a holy convention. No sort of laborious work must you do.
19 And you must present as an offering made by fire, a burnt offering to Jehovah, 2 young bulls and one ram and 7 male lambs each a year old. They should prove to be sound ones for you.
20 And as their grain offerings of fine flour moistened with oil you will render up 3 10th measures for a bull and 2 10th measures for the ram.
21 You will render up a 10th measure respectively for each male lamb of the 7 male lambs;
22 and one goat of sin offering to make atonement for you.
23 Aside from the morning burnt offering, which is for the constant burnt offering, you will render these up.
24 The same as these you will render up daily for the 7 days as bread [~x,l,] an offering made by fire, of a restful odour to Jehovah. Along with the constant burnt offering it should be rendered, and its drink offering.
25 And on the 7th day you should hold a holy convention. No sort of laborious work must you do. (Numbers 28 NWT)

20 This is the offering of Aaron and his sons that they will present to Jehovah on the day of his being anointed: the 10th of an ephah of fine flour as a grain offering constantly, half of it in the morning and half of it in the evening.
21 It will be made with oil upon a griddle. You will bring it well mixed. You will present the bakings of the grain offering in pieces as a restful odour to Jehovah.
22 And the priest, the one anointed in place of him from among his sons, will make it. It is a regulation to time indefinite: As a whole offering it will be made to smoke to Jehovah.
23 And every grain offering of a priest should prove to be a whole offering. It must not be eaten. (Leviticus 6 NWT)

39 And you will offer the one young ram in the morning, and you will offer the other young ram between the 2 evenings.
40 And a 10th part of an ephah measure of fine flour moistened with the 4th of a hin of beaten oil, and a drink offering of the 4th of a hin of wine, will go for the first young ram. (Exodus 29 NWT)

4 The one male lamb you will render up in the morning, and the other male lamb you will render up between the 2 evenings,
5 together with the 10th of an ephah of fine flour as a grain offering moistened with the 4th of a hin of beaten oil;
6 the constant burnt offering, which was rendered up at Mount Sinai as a restful odor, an offering made by fire to Jehovah,
7 along with its drink offering, the 4th of a hin to each male lamb. Pour out in the holy place the drink offering of intoxicating liquor to Jehovah. (Numbers 28 NWT)

So the grain offering was bread pieces made with beaten oil and baked upon the griddle, whereas the wine offering was poured out like the blood of the archetypical animal sacrifice and like the blood of the validation sacrifices for salvation covenants which these offerings prefigured. So the pattern is Animal sacrifice + Bread offering + Wine offering under law which stands for Validation sacrifice + bread emblem + wine emblem under Christianity.

Animal Sacrifice = Validation Sacrifice
Grain offering of oil based griddle baked bread = unleavened bread of salvation covenant
Wine offering poured out = Cup of wine of the blood of the salvation covenant

The 2 Loaves of the Pentecost wave offering

16 To the day after the 7th Sabbath you should count, 50 days, and you must present a new grain offering to Jehovah.
17 Out of your dwelling places you should bring 2 loaves as a wave offering. Of 2 10ths of an ephah of fine flour they should prove to be. They should be baked leavened, as first ripe fruits to Jehovah.
18 And you must present along with the loaves 7 sound male lambs, each a year old, and one young bull and 2 rams. They should serve as a burnt offering to Jehovah along with their grain offering and their drink offerings as an offering made by fire, of a restful odour to Jehovah. (Leviticus 23 NWT)

Everyone had to bring 2 loaves. Not one loaf, but two. These 2 represent the ripe food of 2 true churches which begin operation at two Pentecosts further to two appointments at two first fruits. Now the loaves, being leavened, were not offered up along with any animal sacrifice since the law said...

18 You must not sacrifice along with what is leavened the blood of my sacrifice. And the fat of my festival should not stay overnight until morning [Not merely of my Passover festival but of my festival]. (Exodus 23 NWT)

Date of Celebration of the 2NC

We first celebrated this on Elul16 from 2000-2002. Then we celebrated it on Tishri15. Then in 2010 We moved it to Tishri20 the 6th day of Booths for the 6th congregation of Revelation2/3, Philadelphia. But we missed 2010Tishri20 and instead celebrated 2010Heshvan20. We also correctly celebrated the 2NC on 2010Tishri22, in our attempts to get that festival right. 

BUT... We are not only the 6th congregation of Revelation2/3 we are also the 8th congregation, the 8th church, the church after the end of the second presence, Zoar. 

Now the 8th day (not said to be of Booths) is the Solemn/Formal Assembly. And we have always wondered what the greater festival is for that day. The thing is that the Passover was not a day of Cakes, it was the day before Cakes, making 8 days of eating unleavened bread. The Passover was the first festival of the year. The Solemn Assembly is the last. The Passover is the first New Covenant and the Solemn Assembly is the last, which is the 2NC (the ELC and the HLC of Bilhah and Zilpah lie between them). 

Here is what Solomon did.

1 And when Solomon finished praying, then the fire came down from Heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of Jehovah filled the house;
2 and the priests were not able to go into the house of Jehovah, because the glory of Jehovah had filled the house of Jehovah.
3 And all the sons of Israel were watching, when the fire came down, and the glory of Jehovah was on the house and they bowed [their] noses to the earth, on the pavement, and worshipped, and gave thanks to Jehovah: for [He is] good, for His mercy [endures] forever.
......

8 And Solomon proceeded to hold the festival [of 3rd Watchtower Cakes which is regular Cakes from 2017Iyyar15-21] at THE PROPER/APPOINTED time [t[e] for 7 days, and all Israel with him, a very great congregation from the entering in of Hamath [meaning defence/wall/citadel in Hebrew but called Epiphania by the Greeks] down to the [start of the] torrent valley of Egypt [this must apply to 2017Iyyar15-21 3rd Watchtower Cakes. Since Epiphania is the start of the entering in and all Israel have arrived by 2017Iyyar14. All the sons of the JAC have arrived by 2017Iyyar14, 12 months of John6 before the end of Zoar on 2018Iyyar14. And all the 1NC reserves will have arrived by 2017Iyyar10-12 (3rd Watchtower Passover entry days). But they are baptized on 8 Passover entry days, for which the greater Hanukkah oil does not run out, which are 2016VeAdar10-12 and 2017Nisan11-12 and 2017Iyyar10-12 omitting 2017Nisan10, when the 1st Watchtower Passover victims must get atoned and therefore cannot baptise the 2nd Watchtower Passover victims. Passover victims are not under Sabbath law for a part of a day. So they can join on an atonement day and get atoned at the next opportunity. That is technical. 2016VeAdar10/2017Nisan10/2017Iyyar10 are unbreakable atonement days for the unatoned who were in the church on the first nanosecond of that day. Perhaps no one gets baptized unless they are an atonement sacrifice as Jesus was, who was indeed baptized upon atonement day. Indeed the 1NC reserves may therefore be an atonement sacrifice of some sort.]
9 But on the 8th day they held a solemn assembly [the 2NC Assembly on 2017Iyyar22], because the inauguration of the altar they had held for 7 days [from 1026Tishri7-14 excluding Tishri10] [In the Numbers7 inauguration of the altar of the tabernacle, a chieftain brought 200 shekels of silver and 10 shekels of gold each day for 12 days. This is a 7 day inauguration. But our altar is not for blood sacrifice. It is for the fruits of bible decoding. The altar is where you offer up these fruits. So it is the LW research overseer/administration. This is inaugurated during Cakes-Booths] and the festival [not merely Booths, because ambiguity adds. it does not subtract. So 'the festival' is Booths and another festival in the greater meaning, which is Cakes. So this is first Watchtower Cakes-Booths] for 7 days [from 1026Tishri15-21] [2017Iyyar15-21 for 3rd Watchtower Passover Cakes-Booths. The 1NC reserves sacrifice each other since Jesus took the towel and washed the feet of his apostles and dried them off with the towel, and commanded them to do the same to each other. We inaugurate everyone with unleavened scripture in a one person church during the 3 Cakes-Booths festivals. Then we hold a 2NC Assembly at the end of each festival. But the last day of Cakes is a Solemn Assembly and is an 8th day of Cakes as well as being the 7th day of the festival of Cakes, because the Passover is a day when unfermented Cakes must be eaten (but not a day of the festival of Cakes when no fermented cakes may be eaten). So the Solemn Assembly here could be the 21st or the 22nd of the month? It is 2016VeAdar22/2017Nisan22/2017Iyyar22, the rather late 2NC Assembly].

10 And on the 23rd day of the 7th month [the 9th day from the start of Booths] [2016Tishri23 or 2017Nisan23. Evidently we do hold THE Assembly on 2016Tishri22 - actually we did in fulfilment of this scripture! It is the 2NC celebration after the 7 day one man church disassembly of Booths - worked out on 2016Tishri20 our previous incorrect date for the 2NC celebration] he sent the people away to their homes, joyful and feeling good at heart over the goodness that Jehovah had performed toward David [1NC Kings] and toward Solomon [2NC Kings] and toward Israel his people [Sons of the 4EC. We did not hold the Assembly on 2015Tishri22. But we DID finally get it right and hold it on 2016Tishri22 as prophesied here] (2 Chronicles 7 NWT).

In Solomon's time this was 1026Tishri7/8/9 and 1026Tishri11/12/13/14. He could not assemble during Booths because you have to be in a Booth not in an assembly hall.

So there is no question that we should celebrate 2016Tishri22. Now the formal assembly of the one and only 2NC church is surely the 2NC celebration. For that is what this church is all about. So we shall be celebrating the 2NC on 2016VeAdar22/2017Nisan22/2017Iyyar22 after Cakes/Booths and the 1NC on 2016VeAdar14/2017Nisan14/2017Iyyar14, before Cakes/Booths. 

Once we combine Cakes and Booths it all becomes very simple. Its Passover (1NC), then Cakes/Booths then Solemn/Formal Assembly (2NC). 

If you miss a mandatory festival then the law of the late Passover applies to that festival...

16 And everyone who on the open field may touch someone slain with the sword or a corpse or a bone of a man or a burial place will be unclean seven days (Numbers 19).

So the law for the late Passover...

10 Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, 'Although any man of you or of your generations should happen to be unclean by a soul or off on a distant journey, he too must prepare the Passover sacrifice to
Jehovah.
11 In the second month, on the 14th day between the two evenings, they should prepare it. Together with unfermented cakes and bitter greens they should eat it (Numbers 9).

God gives everyone a second chance! So this law applies to the Passover, Cakes. Booths, any Pentecost, Atonement day and the 2NC Assembly. But not to first fruits days (which are not mandatory as present in Zoar since we do not really know how to celebrate them).

Our latest understanding therefore is that the cups and loafs of the 2NC celebration must be drunk on Tishri22 during the assembly after the 7 day disassembly of Booths. For more on this see U263.

Participants

2NC saints only. These are the registered ones for this festival. 

The Greeting

The meeting starts at sunset. This is an evening meal celebration. The presiding priest must humble himself and must expend himself for the brothers and sisters. He must join in the process of welcoming everyone and taking their coats, showing them to their seats etc. He must do the equivalent of washing their feet. He must not delegate this to a minor deity in his presumptuousness. He must follow the example of Jesus. He must love the congregation. 

Here is the basic procedure In the case of each cup, each covenant...

The priest must pray to God in secret kneeling down for forgiveness for all his sins immediately before he starts the celebration. He must also pray for the forgiveness of the sins of everyone at his celebration immediately before the celebration. And he must pray for the forgiveness of sins of all participants during the celebration.

The priest must say a public blessing standing up at the start of the meeting.

The priest conducting the celebration gives thanks to the relevant parties who are God, the Angelic Master mediator, the Blessing mediator, System mediator and the Ransomer of the System mediator, and the submediator and then blesses the particular loaf (or loaves if there are a lot of partakers) and breaks the loaf and hands the pieces directly only to the partakers of the particular covenant himself. The loaf is not passed from one to another. Then he blesses the wine and gives one partaker the cup of wine, and this partaker then passes it to the next partaker. And so on from one to another among themselves until they have all had some wine. No non partaking person touches this cup to defile it. The priest himself will follow the cup round, topping it up if necessary. Dear reader, can you see the physiological symbolism here? It is beautiful.

The blood is flowing around the body. First the priest defines the stationary parts of the body with the bread. Then the wine, the blood, the moving element of the body, is passed all around them. The cup can go round a second or a third time if necessary until all the wine is drunk. The bread is the body, human or angelic. The blood is the life, the spirit of the validation sacrifice.

Fleshly cups flow (1AC, FRC, ICC, CRC) flow clockwise around the body/table as does blood for the lower body returning through the inferior vena cava.

Spirit cups (1NC, 2NC, ARC) flow anti-clockwise around the body/table as does blood for the upper body and head returning through the superior vena cava.

The same cup should be used for each covenant. For all are into the one, who is the Christ.

All the emblems must be consumed after blessing. The cups must be passed around and around until it is empty. All the blessed bread must be eaten.

The wine can be drunk as the bread is still being eaten. For the two are joined together in the flesh.

The Meal

All present can partake of the vegetarian meal which represents the educational food of the Kingdom of God (and actually the physical food of the kingdom). Animal products such as cheese and eggs are fine. But no flesh is to be eaten.

The 2NC Cup - drunk during the meal

Only Baptized members of the Lords' Witnesses who are also 2NC Saints [2NC Kings or 2NC Lords] can take part in eating this loaf and drinking this cup.

The presiding priest asks all the 2NC saints to stand up and form a visible closed group. 

The presiding priest should make the 2NC with all 2NC saints with whom it has not yet been made (assuming it has been made with him). "I make the 2NC with you in precisely the same terms that my father made it with me". The immediate father in baptism should make it with the son. And exception to this is when a grandfather makes it with both a father and a son at the same celebration. Making the 2NC with someone is imparting a blessing to them. So the covenanters should all be standing during this process. You cannot drink the cup of the 2NC before you are actually in the 2NC!

The presiding priest for this part (who must be a 2nd New Covenant King and male) gives thanks to John and to Jesse for validating the JAC and to Jacob for mediating the JAC, and to Gordon for mediating the 2NC. 

Then he says a blessing on the 2NC loaf such as...

"May this loaf be blessed so that it becomes or represents or symbolises the angelic body of John the baptist or of Jesse or of the correct validation sacrifice for the Jacobian Angelic Covenant, the ransomer of Jacob angelically"

He then breaks it and hands a piece only to those who have been baptized in holy spirit into the second new covenant, saying words to the effect of:

"This is John the baptist's or Jesse's associated angelic body or whichever angelic body it was which was given on your behalf as a ransom for Jacob (who was born without an angelic body, but was given John's or Jesse's associated angelic body by ransom, this being the validation of the JAC)."

The 2nd New Covenant Saints all eat. 

The presiding priest blesses the 2NC cup, and passes the cup to the 2nd New Covenant Saints saying words to the effect of:

"Take this and pass it from one to another among yourselves. This cup is John's or Jesse's blood (representing his life, his spirit) of the JAC, the Jacobian Angelic Covenant, which the first new covenant is a sub covenant of. The JAC was validated by the death of Johnís or Jesse's associated angel but exists by virtue of Jesus' blood of the 3BC (representing Michael's spirit). Both Jesusí and Johnís and Jesse's blood have been poured out on your behalf." 

The 2nd New Covenant Saints then pass the cup from one to another amongst themselves anti-clockwise and drink from it. Nobody touches this cup, or is passed this cup, other than the 2nd New Covenant Saints.

The presiding priest then asks all the 2NC saints to sit down.

The Conclusion

Sing Praises.

The greater meaning of the festival of Booths

33 And Jehovah continued to speak to Moses, saying:
34 Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, 'On the 15th day of this 7th month is the festival of booths for 7 days to Jehovah.
35 On the first day is a holy convention. No sort of laborious work may you do.
36 7 days you should present an offering made by fire to Jehovah. On the 8th day there should occur a holy convention for you, and you must present an offering made by fire to Jehovah. It is a solemn assembly. No sort of laborious work may you do.
37 'These are the seasonal festivals of Jehovah that you should proclaim as holy conventions, for presenting an offering made by fire to Jehovah: the burnt offering and the grain offering of the sacrifice and the drink offerings according to the daily schedule,
38 besides the Sabbaths of Jehovah and besides your gifts and besides all your vow offerings and besides all your voluntary offerings, which you should give to Jehovah.
39 However, on the 15th day of the 7th month, when you have gathered the produce of the land, you should celebrate the festival of Jehovah 7 days. On the first day is a complete rest and on the 8th day is a complete rest.
40 And you must take for yourselves on the first day the fruit of splendid trees, the fronds of palm trees and the boughs of branchy trees and poplars of the torrent valley, and you must rejoice before Jehovah your God 7 days.
41 And you must celebrate it as a festival to Jehovah 7 days in the year. As a statute to time indefinite during your generations, you should celebrate it in the 7th month.
42 It is in the booths you should dwell 7 days. All the natives in Israel should dwell in the booths,
43 in order that your generations may know that it was in the booths that I made the sons of Israel to dwell when I was bringing them out of the land of Egypt. I am Jehovah your God (Leviticus 23).

1 And all the people proceeded to gather themselves as one man at the public square that was before the Water Gate. Then they said to Ezra the copyist to bring the book of the law of Moses, which Jehovah had commanded Israel.
2 Accordingly Ezra the priest brought the law before the congregation of men as well as of women and of all intelligent enough to listen, on the first day of the 7th month.
3 And he continued to read aloud from it before the public square that is before the Water Gate, from daybreak till midday, in front of the men and the women and the other intelligent ones; and the ears of all the people were [attentive] to the book of the law.
4 And Ezra the copyist kept standing upon a wooden podium, which they had made for the occasion; and there were standing alongside him Mattithiah and Shema and Anaiah and Uriah and Hilkiah and Maaseiah to his right hand, and at his left Pedaiah and Mishael and Malchijah and Hashum and Hash-baddanah, Zechariah [and] Meshullam.
5 And Ezra proceeded to open the book before the eyes of all the people, for he happened to be above all the people; and as he opened it all the people stood up.
6 Then Ezra blessed Jehovah the [true] God, the great One, at which all the people answered, Amen! Amen! with the lifting up of their hands. They then bowed low and prostrated themselves to Jehovah with [their] faces to the earth.
7 And Jeshua and Bani and Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodiah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, even the Levites, were explaining the law to the people, while the people were in a standing position.
8 And they continued reading aloud from the book, from the law of the [true] God, it being expounded, and there being a putting of meaning [into it]; and they continued giving understanding in the reading.
9 And Nehemiah, that is, the Tirshatha, and Ezra, the priest, the scribe, and the Levites who were instructing the people proceeded to say to all the people: This very day is holy to Jehovah your God. Do not mourn or weep. For all the people were weeping as they were hearing the words of the law.
10 And he went on to say to them: Go, eat the fatty things and drink the sweet things, and send portions to the one for whom nothing has been prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord [This is how to celebrate Tishri1] and do not feel hurt, for the joy of Jehovah is your stronghold.
11 And the Levites were ordering all the people to be silent, saying: Keep quiet! for this day is holy; and do not feel hurt.
12 So all the people went away to eat and drink and to send out portions and to carry on a great rejoicing, for they had understood the words that had been made known to them.
13 And on the second day the heads of the fathers of all the people, the priests and the Levites, gathered themselves together to Ezra the copyist, even to gain insight into the words of the law.
14 Then they found written in the law that Jehovah had commanded by means of Moses that the sons of Israel should dwell in booths during the festival in the 7th month,
15 and that they should make proclamation and cause a call to pass throughout all their cities and throughout Jerusalem, saying: Go out to the mountain [this is said because we quote Nehemiah, but by mountain we mean administration] and bring in olive leaves [leaves of printed out sheets of the LW website] and the leaves of oil trees and myrtle leaves and palm leaves and the leaves of branchy trees to make booths [small research groups examining leaves from truebiblecode.com and comparing them to the scriptures], according to what is written.
16 And the people proceeded to go out and bring [them] in and make booths for themselves, each one upon his own roof and in their courtyards and in the courtyards of the house of the [true] God and in the public square of the Water Gate and in the public square of the Gate of Ephraim [the places where the small groups of researchers meet]
17 Thus all the congregation of those who had come back from the captivity made booths and took up dwelling in the booths; for the sons of Israel had not done that way from the days of Joshua the son of Nun until that day, so that there came to be very great rejoicing.
18 And there was a reading aloud of the book of the law of the [true] God day by day, from the first day until the last day; and they went on holding the festival 7 days, and on the 8th day there was a solemn assembly, according to the rule (Nehemiah 8).


Remember we are commanded to be joyful at these 3 festivals.

The CRC cup of the 1NC Pentecost

Only baptized members of the Lords' Witnesses, can take part in eating this loaf and drinking this cup.

The presiding priest asks all the baptized LWs to stand up and for a visible closed group. 

He then gives thanks to God for making the CRC with Gabriel, who died validating that covenant in Methuselah. And he gives thanks to Noah, the Blessing Mediator of the 2BC. And he gives thanks to Isaac the the System Mediator of the ICC. 

Then he says a blessing on the first loaf such as...

"May this loaf be blessed so that it becomes or represents or symbolises the body of Methuselah who ransomed Noah in validation of the Second Blessing Covenant, the 2BC which is immediately below the Church Ransom Covenant, the CRC"

He then breaks the loaf and hands a piece to everyone who is in the 2BC, saying words to the effect of: 

"Take eat, this is Methuselah's human body (who was Gabriel) given as a ransom for Noah in validation of the 2BC."

All baptized LWs eat this first loaf while standing. This is Methuselah's body, the validation sacrifice for the 2BC.

The presiding priest (for this part) then blesses the first cup, and then passes the cup to the first brother/sister saying words to the effect of: 

"Take this and pass it from one to another among yourselves. Drink out of it all of you for this is Methuselah's blood of the Second Blessing Covenant, the inferior covenant to the CRC which has been poured out for the many sons of Noah by covenant for the forgiveness of sins until the Kingdom and for citizenship of the Kingdom and a priesthood in the Kingdom and an indefinitely lasting non ageing human body."

The cup is then past clockwise around everyone baptized into the LWs.

The ICC cup of the 2NC Pentecost

Every water baptized LW takes this cup since it is the cup of the ICC, the covenant of the true churches.

The presiding priest asks all the baptized LWs to stand up and form a visible closed group. 

The presiding priest gives thanks to John the baptist and to Elijah for ransoming Isaac and validating the ICC and to Isaac for System mediating the ICC.

Then he says a blessing on the second loaf such as...

"May this loaf be blessed so that it becomes or represents or symbolises the human body of John the baptist or the prophet Elijah or whoever it was that ransomed Isaac in validation of Isaaic Church Covenant, the ICC"

He then breaks the loaf and hands a piece to every water baptised LW, saying words to the effect of: 

"Take eat, this is Elijah's or John's human body given as a ransom for Isaac in validation of the ICC, so that all those with true church can have a second chance in the Kingdom of God as priests."

All baptized LWs eat the loaf while standing. 

The presiding priest (for this part) blesses the 2nd cup, and then passes the cup to the first water baptised brother/sister saying words to the effect of: 

"Take this and pass it from one to another among yourselves. Drink out of it all of you water baptised LWs for this is John's blood of the Isaaic Church Covenant which has been poured out for those in the true churches for the forgiveness of past sins."

The cup is then past around clockwise to every water baptised LW, and they all drink. The cup is not touched or passed to anyone who is not a water baptised LW.

The presiding priest then asks all the baptized LWs to sit down.

We Should celebrate new moons

10 Hear the word of Jehovah, you dictators of Sodom. Give ear to the law of our God, you people of Gomorrah.
11 Of what benefit to me is the multitude of your sacrifices? says Jehovah. I have had enough of whole burnt offerings of rams and the fat of well-fed animals; and in the blood of young bulls and male lambs and he-goats I have taken no delight.
12 When you people keep coming in to see my face, who is it that has required this from your hand, to trample my courtyards?
13 Stop bringing in any more valueless grain offerings. Incense -- it is something detestable to me. New moon and Sabbath, the calling of a convention -- I cannot put up with the [use of] uncanny power along with the solemn assembly.
14 your new moons and your festal seasons my soul has hated. To me they have become a burden; I have become tired of bearing [them]. (Isaiah 1 NWT)

3 On the new moon, blow the horn; On the full moon, for the day of our festival. (Psalms 81 NWT)

22 She now called her husband and said: Do send me, please, one of the attendants and one of the she-asses, and let me run as far as the man of the [true] God and return.
23 But he said: Why are you going to him today? It is not a new moon nor a Sabbath. However, she said: It is all right. (2 Kings 4 NWT)

11 And I shall certainly cause all her exultation, her festival, her new moon and her Sabbath and her every festal season to cease. (Hosea 2 NWT)

5 saying, 'How long will it be before the new moon passes and we may sell cereals? Also, the Sabbath, and we may offer grain for sale; in order to make the ephah small and to make the shekel great and to falsify the scales of deception; (Amos 8 NWT)

23 And it will certainly occur that from new moon to new moon and from Sabbath to Sabbath all flesh will come in to bow down before me, Jehovah has said. (Isaiah 66 NWT)

So the new moon was a festival Sabbath and a Solemn Assembly. We should celebrate it.
