What I am about to share with everyone is based on the findings of the late Messianic Rabbi Zola Levitt, who noted an amazing connection between human fetal development and the descending order of the Feasts of Israel beginning with Passover. After much study and prayer, our Father God Yahweh showed Zola the connection of conception to the spring Feasts of Passover and Unleavened Bread in the spring, and the connection of human birth to the winter celebration of Chanukah. Here is a You Tube video that explores Zola’s findings:

Human Gestation and the Feasts of the Lord -
Coincidence or Intelligent Design?

After watching the brief recap of Zola’s amazing discovery on You Tube, go to the Zola Levitt TV Archive to watch Zola himself give this amazing teaching in his own anointed words:

Levitt TV: “A Child is Born” (The Feasts and Child Development)

Applying this wonderful knowledge to my understanding of the Feasts was interesting and edifying in and of itself. But one day, when I was asked to show how the Jewish Feasts were tied to Yahshua’s Conception and Birth, I made an even more fascinating discovery, which is that Yahshua’s gestational period falls on the Jewish Feasts in REVERSE ORDER, as if every aspect of Yahshua’s sinless life was always meant to reverse and replace the sinfulness of human flesh with the perfect flesh of God Incarnate, the perfect flesh all believers are promised as an inheritance via our Resurrection into the life to come! This ties in perfectly with the idea of the Reversal of History reflected in the nine branches of a Chanukiah Menorah. This is a revelation that God gave to me back in 2007, and which was subsequently added to a later revision of my book “TheLanguage of God in Prophecy.”

As shown in the illustration that I made for that book below, the four branches on the right side of the Menorah can depict the initial fall from Grace and steady downward spiral of mankind from Creation to the time of Yahshua, who is signified by the Servant Lamp. Meanwhile, the four branches on the left side of the Chanukiah depict the reversal of sin and moving from imperfection to perfection through Christ. This ascension of believers takes them from Sheol or Hades - where unredeemed sinners go to await judgment - to the Resurrection, then upward and beyond to the New Creation, which will feature our earthly life to come in the New Jerusalem. This city built by Yahweh God for all of His Children will come down out of Heaven to rest forever after upon the New Earth (See Revelation, Chapter 21). Fascinatingly, just as Yahshua’s conception is tied to the Feast of Chanukah or the Festival of Lights, God’s Creation of the New Heaven and New Earth are also tied to it:

My study of the connection between the Jewish Feast Days, human gestation and Yahshua’s gestation also led me to synchronize the events of Yahshua’s life, which fell on major Jewish Feast Days, with the developmental stages in human gestation. Fascinatingly, through my current review of this study to write this article, I just realized that the nine branches of the Chanukiah can also depict the nine months between human conception and birth! The chart I created below shows the amazing connection between human gestation and the Jewish Feasts, and Yahshua’s gestation and the same Jewish Feasts in reverse order.

When this chart is tied to my written research study of the timing of, and Jewish Feasts surrounding Yahshua’s conception and birth, it presents a fascinating picture of how Yahshua’s conception and human birth are spiritually meant to coincide with the Jewish Feast of Chanukah Week, and how Yahshua’s death and resurrection and the timing of human conception are spiritually tied to Passover Week. In addition, according to my fetal chart below, Yahshua would have been born between Yom Teruah or the Feast of Trumpets, and the Day of Atonement or Yom Kippur, which is five days before the week-long Feast of Sukkot or Tabernacles.

Due to Yahshua’s birth near to Sukkot, Messianic scholars like myself have long suspected that Yahshua’s manger may not have been in a barn, but a Sukkot booth in the yard of someone’s home in Bethlehem. This connection of Yahshua’s conception, birth, death, and Resurrection to the three week-long Feasts in Judaism suggests that this is what Yahshua meant when He said that no one would know the day or hour of His return. It’s possible that Yahshua will come back to catch away His Bride, the True Church, during one of these week-long Feasts! But the Bible does makes it clear that it’s going to be a surprise to many!

Chart Comparing Human Fetal
Development With Yahshua’s Gestation

Human Fetal Development
(Tied to Yahshua’s First Advent)

Yahshua’s Fetal Development
(Assuming His Birth was in September, 3 BC)

Passover - Egg is released - Tied to Yahshua’s crucifixion (The Passover Lamb of God)

1st day of Chanukah, evening, Dec. 14th, 4 BC (Julian date) - Miriam’s egg was likely released on this day

Feast of Unleavened Bread, 1 week long - Egg is fertilized - Tied to Yahshua in the grave

3rd - 4th day of Chanukah, - Miriam’s egg was likely fertilized in this time frame
(See Chanukiah Image At Top of Article!)

Firstfruits - Egg is implanted and human life begins - Tied to Yahshua’s resurrection into everlasting life; 40 days later, 6th week’s end - Yahshua ascended to Heaven

Dec. 19th, 4 BC - 5th day of Chanukah - tied to the Servant Lamp on a Chanukiah Menorah. Most likely day of Yahshua’s Conception, when the egg was embedded

Pentecost or Shavuot, 8th week - After 50 days (7 weeks), embryo becomes fully recognizable as a human fetus - Tied to the giving of the Law and Yahshua’s Holy Spirit

Yahshua’s 8th week of human life - Tu B’Shevat - the 15th of Shevat, the New Year of Trees, falls 50 days from the 1st day of Chanukah

17th week - 1st of Av
18th week - Tisha B’Av, the 9th of Av
19th week - Tu B’Av, the 15th of Av

Yahshua’s 12th wk of life - Purim
Yahshua’s 16th week - Passover
Yahshua’s 21st week -
33rd Omer (Lag B’Omer)
Yahshua’s 23rd week - Shavuot

Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teruah) - 25th week, Fetus’ hearing is fully developed; 5 days into 25th week - Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), fetus’ blood supply is severed from mother’s; 26th week - Feast of Tabernacles, all of the fetus’ internal organs are fully developed

Yahshua’s 30th week of human life - 1st of Av; Yahshua’s 33rd week of human life - Tisha B’Av, the 9th of Av, Jewish Day of Mourning; Yahshua’s 34th week of human life - Tu B’Av, the 15th of Av, Feast of Wood-bearing & beginning of grape harvest

(Based on a Teaching by Zola Levitt)

Yahshua’s 38th week of human life - Feast of Trumpets or Yom Teruah; fell on September 11th in 3 BC. Yahshua may have been born at this time. NOTE: Rosh Hashanah per God’s Calendar is the 1st day of the 1st month called Nissan, not the 1st day of the 7th month called Tishri.

Feast of Chanukah, begins 25th of Kislev - 40th week; optimal time for human birth is from the 38th to 40th week - Yahshua conceived at Chanukah (See Right Side of Chart)

Day of Atonement or Yom Kippur, (fell on Julian date of September 21st, 3 BC), 40th week - Yahshua’s approximate time of birth; entrance into human history was from 38th to 40th week.

To see the reversal of history along with the reversal in timing between human gestation and Yahshua’s Fetal development, first note Passover Week. Zola wisely tied the conception and implantation of the corrupted flesh of a human fetus to Passover, which saved the Israelites from physical death, though their flesh remained corrupted. But the sinfulness of our flesh was negated by, or healed over by Yahshua’s death and resurrection into everlasting life during Passover Week! At that time, Yahshua was given a perfect body of flesh and spirit that was physically different than the purely spiritual body that He inhabited prior to His birth in Miriam’s womb. This prophetic quality can also be seen by noting that, whereas the week of Chanukah is tied to human birth in a body of corrupted, carnal flesh, this curse is negated by the conception and implantation of Yahshua’s perfect flesh and Spirit in Miriam’s womb during that same Feast!

According to what God showed me when I created the Chanukiah illustration for my Language of God Book Series, the spiritual conception of the Bride of Christ at the First Rapture is tied to the day of Pentecost or the Feast of Weeks, which is called Shavuot in Hebrew. Meanwhile, the Bride’s full birth or presentation to God after the Second Rapture at the Wedding of the Lamb in Heaven is tied to Chanukah or the Feast of Dedication.

The Feast of Chanukah is also known as the Festival of Lights due to the Miracle of the Menorah, which legend states happened at the time of the Second Temple’s re-dedication to God, shortly after Jerusalem was liberated from foreign occupation. This happened early in the rule of the Maccabean kings over Israel, in the centuries before the birth of Christ. At that time, the olive oil needed for the Temple Menorah had been in short supply. Nonetheless, during the week that it took for the Levite priests to procure more oil, all seven lamps on the solid gold, seven-branched Temple lampstand burned for a full week on only one day’s worth of oil!

This supposition casts doubt on the idea that the Rapture of the Bride of Yahshua is tied to the Feast of Trumpets or Yom Teruah. Could it be that the Feast of Trumpets is not meant to be seen as the Wedding Day, but only a warning that the Bridegroom is near? Could the translation or birth of the Bride of Christ at the Wedding of the Lamb be tied to Chanukah - just as human birth is? It is an interesting possibility! Fascinatingly, my research has also shown that there may be Two Rapture Events, with the First Rapture of the Wise Virgins being tied to the beginning of the Great Tribulation, or the middle of the seven year Tribulation period.

In the article I linked to about the possibility of two Rapture events, I still think that the First Rapture is tied to the season of Pentecost or Shavuot, which is in the early summer (or technically, the late spring) and had to occur around then, I no longer believe it necessarily has to occur when it is summer in the Northern Hemisphere. Remember that early summer in the Southern Hemisphere is in December, and the First Rapture could actually occur around then - near to the time of Chanukah. There is no doubt that the First Rapture is described in terms of summer, so it most likely will be when it is early to mid summer in at least one half of the world. Though I thought the Rapture might happen this past Chanukah of 2012, it did not, so we have to look forward to another time for our blessed hope to arrive.

Fascinatingly, my new findings regarding the prophetic meaning of the measurements in the Antechamber of the Great Pyramid suggest that June is a significant prophetic month in the Tribulation period (See my POEM Blog article entitled “A New Revelation Tied to the Pillar of Enoch”; Link: fact, the end date that I found inside the Antechamber is June 1st, 2016, which is right around Pentecost and Shavuot. Here is an illustration of the Great Pyramid Antechamber superimposed over my Tribulation Time-line that was used in the article linked to above:

Interestingly, Shavuot or the Feast of Weeks will begin on the evening of June 11th, 2016, and Shavuot is the Jewish equivalent to Pentecost, which will fall on Sunday, May 15th in 2016. This ties right into the fact that the seven-year Tribulation may have been heralded as imminent by the July 11th, 2010 Blood Moon over Easter Island, and the seven-year Tribulation may have officially begun one year later, when there was a spectacular Full Central Lunar Eclipse on June 15th, 2011.

This seems to rectify the problem I had with the revelation that God gave me in 2004 about the Prophecy Hidden in the Autumn Feasts (See Part 2 of this Article Series). Could the five days between Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement and the first day of the Feast of Sukkot or Tabernacles be symbolic of the length of the entire Tribulation period, rather than be connected to the last five years of the Tribulation as I had originally assumed? Almost exactly five years will pass between the June 15th, 2011 Total Lunar Eclipse and June 1st, 2016. So this could be meant as a sign that the Tribulation will be shortened to five years for the sake of the Jews and the Tribulation Saints. Though we see in a glass darkly, it is still an exciting possibility! 

For more information about the dating of the Tribulation with the Signs in the Heavens and the Jewish Feasts, and a comprehensive study of the unfolding of Bible Prophecy, see my book: “The Language of God in Prophecy,” which is available for purchase at my POEM web site, and at

Though the Rapture did not happen around December 21st, 2012 as Jack Van Impe and I had hoped, all of the End Time Signs that are happening right now indicate that it will be very soon. Though Prophecy teacher Jack Van Impe incorrectly speculated that the Rapture might occur around the Mayan End Date in his memorable presentation entitled: “December 21st 2012: History’s Final Day?”, it still is an intriguing presentation, and it may be that the end year of the Mayan Calender’s Fifth Sun, which was determined using projections of the Sun, Moon, planets and stars over vast periods of time, may have been a year or two off. In fact, the Great Pyramid at Giza was also made to serve at a time marker over a vast period of time using the objects in the heavens surrounding the Earth as the clock, and it could also be off by a year or two, depending on how accurate their form of Astronomy was. If you’re interested in watching Jack Van Impe’s full length presentation about 12-21-2012, here is a link to it at YouTube:

Uncannily, many Zodiac motifs with references to the Mayan End Date for their Fifth Sun or Age are hidden in various places in Washington DC, the most notable of which appears in the Capitol Building, where the Aztec Calendar showing the date 13 Baktun or December 21st, 2012 appears in a circular painting inside the building’s huge domed roof. Though there’s no telling why the Aztec Sun Calendar was painted in the Capitol Building, it could be because it has something to do with America’s place in Bible Prophecy.

Proof that this Stone Aztec Sun Calendar is NOT a Pagan carving, but was likely the product of a people who followed the Way of Yahweh, will appear in another POEM Blog post in the near future. This upcoming article will also explore the idea that the Rapture may be tied to Chanukah, but in another upcoming year, such as 2013 or 2014. But in the meantime, remember that the Rapture could occur at any time, and we always need to be spiritually prepared.

Until my follow up article on this topic, I pray that you will be deeply blessed, and will find spiritual value in studying my prophetic findings hidden within the fetal chart that I shared in this article.

Yahshua is coming SOON! Maranatha!

To Give A Financial Gift:


  1. As a Believer I don't like being skeptical of things like this, but some things stuck out at me.

    Chanukah is 8 months and 10 days after Passover, not 9.

    The correlations for the Nisan Feasts are not based on how long into the pregnancy something happens but when on a Woman's monthly cycle she's likely to Conceive.

    "The reason for my skepticism is that too many believers that are awaiting the Rapture are expecting Yahshua to return on just about any one of the Feasts, and the Bible makes it clear that it’s going to be a surprise!" I reject this basic Pre-Tirb supposition, it's a surprise only to The World, The Bible is equally clear we should not be taken by Surprise. I believe the 70th Week begins and end sin Nisan just as the first 69 did, and the Parusia occurs in Tishri in the middle of the Week.

    1. I don't know how I missed replying to you back in 2014, but I am doing so now. I believe that just as I made some incorrect assumptions in 2014, you have made some incorrect assumptions also, and I would like to point you to my recent article expounding upon Daniel's Prophecy of the 70 Weeks, which shows that Yahshua fulfilled the first half of the 70th week during His First Advent, AND ONLY THE SECOND HALF OF THAT 70TH WEEK NEEDS TO BE FULFILLED IN THE FUTURE. Just as the Bible says, the Great Tribulation is only 3.5 years long.

      Here is the Article Title and Link:

  2. sorry but the Church does not have to be here for the Tribulation need to see Isaiah 57:1 also read Revelation chapter 1&2 only one Church will go thru the Great Tribulation and the Church of Philadelphia will be taken out before the hour of trial. All so read Revelation 6:12-17. The Bride of Christ if we are the body of Christ here on earth. Why would we have to take on the wrath of the Lamb? This is bad Hermeneutics. But glad to see some one also using all 9 feast day to see what I have been seeing. As there are 3 harvest barley, wheat and grapes.

    1. I never said the Church has to go through the Great Tribulation. But I believe we will be here to experience the first Five Tribulation Seal Judgments, and the Rapture will likely occur just before the Sixth Seal is opened. Because that is when God's Wrath begins to be poured out, and we as believers are not subject to God's Wrath, only Satan's Wrath.


Shalom! Feel free to comment, but please be respectful. God bless!
