Announcing the Yearly Sabbath (Now the Feast of Revelation)
In preparing to announce the
Yearly Sabbath in this Newsbrief, we noticed there were
some inconsistencies in how the Sabbath was calculated
Calendar of God (it is now fixed).
After much study, discussion, and contemplation,
Maitreya came to a final decision, and we are
now satisfied that we are calculating and keeping it in
the way God intended. The
new explanation given in THOTH,
Essays 1, Tablet 14, "Feasts
and Holy Days of the Lord"
is as follows:
7 - After this holy
convocation [the seventh and last day of the Feast of Unleavened
Bread, the twenty-first of the first month], the next day will be the offering of the
"firstfruits" (as explained in Leviticus
23:10, which no longer is necessary; Christ was the firstfruit!).
After this day, count fifty days (seven weeks, which will include seven
Sabbaths); another yearly
convocation, with no servile work. Each week of these
seven weeks symbolizes one seal of the seven seals in the
Eternal Divine Path. After the seventh
seal, the last Revelation of God will (has) come.
Therefore, this yearly Sabbath from now on will be called the
Feast of Revelation.
Therefore, the Yearly Sabbath now
falls on a slightly different day than before, and its
true name is the Feast of Revelation! It will always be the 72nd day
of the lunar year in the Calendar of God (the day after
the 21st day, or the 22nd day, + 50 days = 72 days) and
will always fall on Shakti 12, 13, or 14, depending on
the length of the months for that year.
The reason it is
called the Feast of Revelation is that: In the Jewish
tradition, it is believed that the
Torah was revealed 50 days after the Passover. So this Yearly Sabbath was the Feast of Revelation.
However, with the Revelation of the Eternal Divine Path,
we now understand what God meant by counting "seven"
Sabbaths and so seven weeks. Each was meant to
symbolize one Seal, and the
Feast of Revelation symbolizes the opening of the Seventh
Seal. Now it can
be known as the day of Revelation of the last and the
most complete Revelation of God!
Under the new explanation, this
year's Feast of Revelation will be on Shakti 13,
or June 13 (6 PM June 12 to 6 PM June 13).
Keep it as you would the weekly Sabbath, with no servile
work (if possible), fasting, rest, spiritual practice,
focus and contemplation on God, etc. It is also a
good time to review and meditate on the Eternal
Divine Path and its seven Revelations and
Truths that were revealed over the last 12,000 years of
history, especially the seventh Revelation brought by
Maitreya which is now on earth.
Always remember that the spirit
and ideation behind celebrating God's Holy Days is much
more important than the specific rituals, dates, etc.
We must not become rigid and dogmatic as other religions
have. However, best is to have both the spirit
behind the Day, and the correct date!
If you have any questions about
the new Feast of Revelation and how to celebrate or
calculate it, please
