In the Kingdom of God, the 1NC kings and the 2NC kings unite to rule as husband and wife. The 1NC kings celebrate their marriage to Jesus through Peter during cakes. The 2NC kings celebrate their marriage to Melchizedek through Gordon during Booths. The administration of Zoar, which began on 2012Sivan16, becomes the synthesis of these two houses of kings who will rule over 144,000 kingdoms in married pairs. What better way to symbolise this union than uniting the two festivals that celebrate these two covenants?
We know that Jesus said...
36 the reaper is receiving wages and
gathering fruit for everlasting life, so that the sower and the reaper may
37 In this respect, indeed, the saying is true, One is the sower and another the reaper (John 4).
And we know that God commands us all to be happy and to rejoice at each of his festivals. It is interesting that the definitions of Cakes and Booths are isomorphic. The one becomes the other when the calendar is changed from Nisan start to Tishri start. This may indicate that Cakes and Booths are to be swapped or even united at some point in the future.
These festival are all defined with the flexibility to permit such a union...
4 'These are [the]
seasonal festivals of Jehovah, [the] holy conventions,
which you should proclaim at their appointed times:
5 In-the-month, the first, on the 14th day of the month, between the 2 evenings is the Passover to Jehovah.
6 'And on the 15th day of this month is the festival of unfermented-cakes to Jehovah. 7 days you should eat unfermented-cakes.
7 On-the-day, the first, you will have a holy convention occur. No sort of work of labour may you do.
8 But you must present an offering made by fire to Jehovah 7 days. On the 7th day there will be a holy convention. No sort of work of labour may you do (Leviticus23).
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
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-day, the 8th, 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 work of labour 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-day, the first, is a complete rest and on the day, the 8th, 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 of 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-month, the 7th.
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 from the land of Egypt. I am Jehovah your God (Leviticus23).
So the Passover occurs on the 14th day of the first month. Well that is Nisan if the calendar starts in Nisan and it is Tishri if the calendar starts in Tishri. Likewise Cakes occurs from the 15th day of the first month to the 21st. And Booths from the 15th day of the 7th month to the 21st with the Solemn Assembly on the 22nd. Since the marriage of the lamb has now occurred (it occurred on 2008Nisan22) the Lord's evening meal should take on a new form presumably. But since Booths is not said to occur in Tishri, but in the 7th month, this is a real possibility. Why would we celebrate separately after having been united? Those who God hath yoked together, let no man put asunder! So Booths and the Solemn Assembly make an 8 days festival from Tishri15-22 with a Solemn Assembly on the last day. But actually Cakes is an 8 day festival from Nisan14-21 with a Solemn Assembly on the last day...
8 6 days you should eat unfermented cakes; and on the 7th day there will be a solemn assembly to Jehovah your God. You must do no work. (Deuteronomy 16 NWT).
