Yahshuah HaMoshiach is the fullness of the manifestation of the Appointed Times stated above. The unfortunate misunderstanding of the below text has brought many to an incorrect interpretation of the subject mentioned below:

Matthew 5:17 - 18 “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”

The Law and the Prophets are the subjects, Messiah is speaking concerning their fulfillment, but what does the word fulfillment mean contextually. The Greek word used here is 'pleroo' G4137 which means literally:

1) to make full, to fill up, i.e. to fill to the full

1a) to cause to abound, to furnish or supply liberally

1a1) I abound, I am liberally supplied

2) to render full, i.e. to complete

2a) to fill to the top: so that nothing shall be wanting to full measure, fill to the brim

2b) to consummate: a number

2b1) to make complete in every particular, to render perfect

2b2) to carry through to the end, to accomplish, carry out, (some undertaking)

2c) to carry into effect, bring to realization, realize

2c1) of matters of duty: to perform, execute

2c2) of sayings, promises, prophecies, to bring to pass, ratify, accomplish

2c3) to fulfill, i.e., to cause God’s will (as made known in the law) to be obeyed as it should be, and God’s promises (given through the prophets) to receive fulfillment

As you can see the word pleroo does not mean what has been taught concerning the keeping of Yahweh's Laws and Holy Days. He is clearly stating, from the definition of this word that He came to bring the Law and the Prophecies to their fullest so that there is nothing lacking. Then He continues on to say that until the heaven and earth pass away not one jot or tittle of the Law will pass away. This is said again in Luke 6:17. Do you think that maybe He wanted us to understand what He meant? I think so, because at the mouth of two witnesses, Matthew and Luke, truth is established. The heaven and earth have not passed away and are still intact, so to try and void out the Law and Prophets would be unScriptural and should be counted as deceptive teaching.

The first four Holy Days have come to fruition as shown above and when Messiah returns He will cause the last three to be full. They are a time-line that speaks of His birth, life, death, resurrection, and return. Let us prepare for His return by observing these Special Times to make ourselves ready to be His bride when He returns.

Will you be one of the wise virgins or will you stand outside as one of the foolish? This is the time to fill your lamp with oil so that you will be ready to make the journey to meet Messiah when he returns.
