Does The Book Of Revelation Follow The Pattern Of Israel's Holy Days?


This site/paper -
http://www.originofnations.org/HRP_Papers/Charts/Feast%20Days%20&%20Revelation.pdf - shows a chart suggesting the Book of Revelation correlates with Israel's ancient Holy Days

The idea rings true to me.

Copy / Pasted :

Holy Feast Day/Book of Revelation Parallels, (and I thought I'd add how the Feast Day is fulfilled)

Chapter --- Prophecy – Event --- Holy Feast Day

1 --- Introduction – Christ the Lamb of God --- Passover (Jesus is the Passover Lamb, unblemished, etc)

2-3 --- Seven Churches – sin in spiritual Israel and examining the self --- Seven Days of Unleavened Bread (Jesus is the Unleavened/free from sin/flaw Bread of Life, Manna from heaven)

4-5 --- Christ the Lamb, Redeemer  – worthy to open the scroll --- Sheaf of the Firstfruits during the DUB(days of unleavened bread; my note: no, "Firstfruits" always falls on the Sunday of Spring Holy Week)

6 – 8:6 --- Seven Seals of the Scroll  – Pentecost(?) ---- or part of FirstFriuts? (1st horseman of the apocalypse, white horse, victor, ride continues to 'end') "the scroll is opened (unrolled) and out comes a white horse and rider.."

7:4,9; 14:4 --- Two Wave Loaves/Two Multitudes – Israel and the Gentiles --- Pentecost (Acts 2,from many lands)

8:7 --- 11:19 – Seven Trumpets --- Trumpets

12 --- INSET (hooray, someone else sees this chapter is an insert, whole on its own)

13 --- 19  – Great Tribulation --- Trumpets  ---this, and the rest, is where I would differ
20:1-3  – Satan bound --- Atonement
20:4-6  – Millennial reign of the Messiah --- Tabernacles
20:7-15  – Judgment Last Great Day
(Quote: The above chart is based on the information contained in David Hill’s booklet on The Correlation between the Holy Days and the Book of Revelation)
-----------------------------------------------------

This makes more sense to me:

Trumpets --- calamities/judgments announce the return of Jesus, the blown shofar "come to the Lord"
     7th Trump - His return/1st resurrection/beginning of His 1000 year reign (represented by the 10 days of "Trumpets"?)
          Bowls (of final bubbling and spilling over consequences)/Judgment
               (quick & ?concurrent) and Satan bound

Day of Atonement --- 2nd resurrection, judgment day (represented by 5 days between DOA & Tabernacles?)

Tabernacles! --- "God will now tabernacle with man" - The New Jerusalem and the very throne of God come to Earth (made new in a universe made new) - God filling all things every where - "all in all")
