All Things Reconciled

It's gotten lodged in my head that as the spring feasts, Passover, Unleavened Bread and Firstfruits, were fulfilled by Jesus at His first advent ("...that we may be unleavened.. for Christ our Passover has been sacrificed" 1 Cor 5:7, and "Christ the Firstfruits" 1 Cor 15:23) ..then surely the Autumn Feasts prophecy, and will be fulfilled by the second advent!?
     Leviticus 23, of course, lists the Feasts of God beginning with Israel's weekly Sabbath. Hebrews 4:3 & 9 says "...enter that rest ..a rest for the people of God" which of course is Jesus, thus even the weekly Holy Day/Sabbath is fulfilled by Jesus (Heb 3:18-4:10).
     I like how Young's Literal Translation puts the whole thing (God saith) in Leviticus 23:2 "these are My appointed seasons".
With the Fall Festivals being of the month (tishri / sept-oct) -
  ..Day 1 - "Trumpets"; Day 10 - the "Day of Atonement"; and Day 15 - the Feast of "Tabernacles", I'm thinking the peaks of what is prophesied as the second advent of Jesus, correlate.. Going something like this:
  ..Year 1 - Christ's return and the first resurrection ..."immediately after the tribulation of those days... with a great sound of a trumpet... will gather His elect from the four winds under heaven.."
  ..Year 1000 - occurs the second resurrection and the "Day of Judgment" [Because of the numbers, 1st, 10th & 15th, and because we know the millennial rule of Christ is prophesied to last 1000 years, I'm thinking the numbers have meaning (correlate) with days being years, and adding two zeroes to each, the 10th and the 15th; day 1 becoming year 1; day 10 becomes year 1000; and day 15,year 1500; making Judgment Day to last 500 years.]
 -The Day of 'Judgment' ends with, or is followed by the notorious words "those not written in the book of life" (those not believing) "will go to the" (cleansing ageduring) "lake of fire".
..But! after all have experienced [#1] being resurrected from the sleep of death (1 thes 4) and [#2] witnessing and living through an 'age' of the review and examination of all things (all human history,etc), who's not going to "believe"? I would think not many. There's really only one verse, I know of, which can possibly be used to suggest one MUST believe before their death, which is when Jesus told the pharisees unless they repent they would "die in their sins" but I think all this means is the first resurrection where immortality "is put on" far surpasses the second resurrection (for a time).
-All this, to my way of seeing it, turns the Day of Judgment to a GreaT Day of Atonement, at-one-ment / Reconciliation, but also being a day of repentance and weeping as became practiced by Israel.
  ..Year 1500 - a new heaven and a new earth.. the new Jerusalem comes down.. "behold the Tabernacle of God is among men and He will dwell among them". God the Father will "Tabernacle" with man upon perfect earth in a perfect universe... An un-breakable perfection because the full knowing of good from evil (life from death) will be deeply etched upon every heart and mind/psyche. Surely God can only be perfect, therefor the 'end' result of all this can only be the best one possible!
