Seven Skinny Cows Become Seven Fat Cows: The Fullness of the Gentiles

By Maria Merola אריאל 
Have you ever wondered about Pharaoh’s two dreams in Genesis 41:1-7, which were interpreted by Yahuwceph (Joseph)? Have you ever asked yourself “Is there a deeper meaning to these dreams, pertaining to the end-times?”

For many years, I had a hunch that these fourteen cows had a future fulfillment, but I had not put together all the pieces, until Yom Teruw’ah (Feast of Trumpets) in 2014. Seven years earlier, YaHuWaH had called me into full-time ministry, and he instructed me to name the ministry “Double Portion Inheritance.”

This was my 7th year of being in the ministry, and I had just gotten married to my husband Gary on August 29th 2014, in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. To read about our testimony, see this blog: “Resurrection of a Promise: The Testimony of Maria Merola & Gary Wold.”

I was realizing that I had received a “a double portion” blessing from the Father, when he gave me a wonderful husband to share my life with. After our 10-day honeymoon, Gary flew back to Sacramento (because of his job), and I was left in Virginia with the daunting task of selling my furniture, and packing up my belongings. It would take nine months, before the lease on my apartment expired, and I could afford to make the move to California.

During those nine months of separation as a newly wed couple, (even though we prayed and communicated daily by phone), I began to identify with Leah & Rachel in a very tangible way. This is when I received the revelation that the seven healthy and beautiful cows typify Rachel, and the sickly, weak, and unhealthy cows typify Leah. It was then, that I realized that these two dreams of Pharaoh had a future fulfillment, pertaining to “The Two Houses of Yisrael, into one corporate bride.

Yahuwseph (Joseph) in Egypt was a prophetic “type” of Messiah, and he served under Pharaoh during seven years of plenty followed by seven years of famine.

It all began when Pharaoh had two dreams one night about seven skinny cows that swallowed up seven fat cows. In order to understand these two dreams of Pharaoh, a previous pattern can be seen with Jacob’s fourteen years of working for his two brides, (two periods of seven years, back-to-back). 

It is no surprise that Joseph also had been entrusted with fourteen years of working to save two groups of people (two periods of seven years, back-to-back). During the first seven years of plenty, Joseph worked to store up the grain in Egypt for the gentiles. During the seven years of famine, his Yisra’elite brothers came to buy grain, and were saved by the “fullness” or the “plenty” of the Egyptian gentiles.

What Do Cows in General Represent?

Cows provide us with nutrition in two ways: milk, and meat. We are told in Scripture that we must advance from the “milk” of the word, to the “meat” of the word (1st Corinthians 3:2; Hebrews 5:12). Therefore, cows symbolize the word of Elohiym. The name “Leah” in Hebrew means “weak-eyed, weary, grieved.” Her name also means “a wild cow,” according to this website: Meaning of the Name Leah.

What Do These Fourteen Cows Represent? 

The first seven cows in 
Pharaoh’s dream represent the first seven years that Jacob worked for his bride, (Rachel), but he was tricked into marrying Leah. After he married Leah, he confronted his father-in-law (Laban), and asked him 
“Why did you trick me?(my paraphrase). Laban explained to Jacob that it was their custom to marry off the first-born daughter, but that he could have Rachel also, once he fulfilled the week with Leah. Jacob also had to agree to work, yet another seven years, once he married Rachel. This means that Jacob married both sisters back-to-back within the same fourteen days!

However, Jacob worked a total of fourteen years for both of his wives! This means that the seven years of plenty, followed by the seven years of famine, pictures the two brides of Jacob, and the Two Houses of Yisra’el

Jacob realized that he had been tricked into marrying Leah, as he was “reaping what he had sown.” Jacob had previously tricked his father, Isaac into believing that he was Esau, in order to receive the inheritance of the first-born. And now, he was being forced to marry “the first-born daughter,” to go along with his inheritance of “the first-born!”

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 29:27 Fulfil her week, and we will give you this also for the service which you shall serve with me yet seven other years

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 29:28 And Yaaqob (Jacob) did so, and fulfilled her week: and he gave him Rachel his daughter to wife also.

Therefore, Leah, (the first wife), symbolizes the “seven years of plenty,” because Leah had more children, than her younger sister, Rachel. This was because YaHuWaH compensated Leah, for she was not loved by her husband. You see, Jacob loved Rachel, because she was beautiful, and attractive to look upon. At first, Rachel symbolizes the fat, and beautiful cows, whereas, Leah symbolizes the skinny, and unattractive cows. 

However, after Jacob married these two sisters, Rachel, (the second wife), became like the “seven years of famine.” Even though she was more physically attractive, she became like the unattractive and sickly cows, when she had stolen and worshiped the idols of her father, (Laban), and thus, she died while giving birth to Benjamin.

YaHuWaH  “reversed the identity of these two sisters, by causing Rachel (typified as the beautiful, fat cows) to not be as fruitful, and therefore, she became as the skinny, and unattractive cows. And Leah, (who was not looked upon favorably by Jacob), was originally thought to be like the skinny and unattractive cows, but she became more “fruitful,” therefore, she represents Ephrayim, whose name means “double fruit.” 

The Two Houses Trade Places in the Last Days

Just before Jacob was about to die, he blessed Joseph’s two sons, but he gave the blessing of the “first-born” to Joseph’s younger son, Ephraiym, and the older son, (Manasseh) was given the blessing of the second-born, even though he was biologically the first-born. 

Thus, Jacob caused these two grandsons to “trade places,” as he “crossed over his hands,” making the first as the last, and the last as the first.

The name Menashsheh (Manasseh) means “causing to forget.” This is because Manasseh symbolizes the House of Judah, who caused the nations to “forget”  the name of YaHuWaH, by placing a ban on the divine name. See my blog entitled: “My People Shall Know My Name!”

Jacob had learned from his own life experiences, a principle seen throughout the Scriptures:

“The first shall be last, and the last shall be first” (Matthew 19:30; 20:16; Mark 9:35; 10:31; Luke 13:30). 

Whoever shall exalt himself, shall be humbled or abased, and whoever shall humble himself shall be exalted(Matthew 23:12; Luke 14:11; 18:14).

Therefore, “The Ten Northern Tribes of the House of Ephrayim,” symbolize the seven fat, and beautiful cows, even though, at first, they were thought to be the unattractive, and ugly cows. The Kingdom of Yisra’el (under King David), was fully united, until he brought trouble upon his own household, when he sinned with Bathsheba. The consequences of that sin (although he did repent), had far-reaching repercussions, that would alter the course of history. His son Shlomo (Solomon) committed even greater sins, by taking a thousand heathen wives, and building temples for them to their false gods.

Because of Solomon’s many sins, we read in 1st Kings chapter 12, that the two kingdoms split. Two of the tribes (Judah & Benjamin) also known as “The Two Southern Tribes of the House of Judah,” would be ruled by Solomon’s son, Rehoboam. But the other ten tribes, departed from the House of David, and were ruled by King Jeroboam. Since that time, (and right up until the second coming of Messiah), they have been, and are still known as “The Two Houses of Yisrael,” (see Isaiah 8:14). 

Two Sister Harlots Divided Over A Male Heir

In 1st Kings 3:16-24, King Shlomo (Solomon) had to make a judgement call between two harlots who were fighting a baby boy. One of the harlots accidentally killed her baby boy, by smothering him in the middle of the night, as she laid on top of him. Therefore, she swapped out her dead baby, with the living baby of the other harlot. In order to find out who the real mother was, Solomon threatened to divide this baby in half with a sword! 

This story reminds us of a metaphor given by the Prophet Ezekiel in Ezekiel 23 about “Two Sister Harlots,” typified in Ephraiym (whose capital city was Samaria), and Judah (whose capital city was Jerusalem). The “sword,” that Solomon was going to use to divide the baby, is obviously “The Word of the Almighty,” as we are told that the Word of Elohiym is “Sharper than any two-edge sword,” (Hebrews 4:12, Ephesians 6:17). 

These “Two Sister Harlots,” represent “The Two Houses of Yisrael,” who have been fighting over the land of their inheritance, since the two kingdoms split. Little did they realize that the “male heir,” is the Messiah, Yahuwshuwa! For it is only through him, that they are able to inherit the land promised to Abraham, and to his descendants!

The House of Ephrayim is likened unto a “bullock,” and also a “heifer” in prophecy (Deuteronomy 33:17; Jeremiah 31:18; Hosea 10:11). Thus, cows in prophecy represent the nations. On the Feast of Tabernacles, the Levites were instructed to slaughter seventy bulls for the nations, and seven lambs for Yisra’el. Seven is the number of covenant, and ten is the number that symbolizes the gentile nations. Therefore 7 x 10 = 70.

There are seven congregations in the book of Revelation who symbolize The House of Ephrayim.” These seven congregations represent Messianic Believers in the nations,” that have been grafted into the olive tree of Yisra’el through Messiah’s blood covenant. However, they are warned to depart from their idolatry and lawlessness, or they will have their candlestick (menorah) removed by Messiah.

In Genesis 48:19, Yisra’el (Ya’aqob-Jacob) prophesied over his grandson Ephrayim that he would become “A multitude of nations.” In Hebrew, this phrase is “Melo hagoyim” which means “Fullness of the Gentile Nations.”

Even though Yisra’el (Ya’aqob-Jacob) gave his two grandsons (Ephrayim & Manasseh) their true identity when he said “Let my name be named upon them,” there was a time in history when these two grandsons would be scattered to the nations, and their descendants would “forget” their heritage with Yisra’el. 

Ya’aqob (Jacob) gave his son Yahuwceph (Joseph) “One extra portion above his brothers,” or in other words “A double portion inheritance” (Genesis 48:22). This means that Joseph received the “Wealth of the heathen nations for an inheritance” (Psalm 2:8). Jacob also blessed Yahuwdah (Judah), his fourth son, born to him by Leah, and gave him the “scepter” of a “law-giver” to rule over the other tribes. Judah received the “priestly and kingly blessing” of Melchizedek (Genesis 49:8-10, Hebrews 7:14). Also see my blog entitled “What is the Double Portion Inheritance?”

Ephrayim became the tribal leader of the Ten Northern Tribes of Yisra’el, who were later divorced by YaHuWaH in Jeremiah 3:8. In 1st Kings 12, King Jeroboam broke away from the House of David, and he took ten of the tribes with him. King Jeroboam also forbade these ten tribes from making pilgrimage to Jerusalem to keep the appointed feasts. 

Instead, he set up golden calves at Mount Ephrayim and at Dan, and he instead enforced pagan holidays, not ordained by YaHuWaH. It is because of these false pagan holidays that Ephrayim was eventually cut out of the covenant, and he was called “Loammi,” which means “Not my people.”

Howshea (Hosea) 1:

9 Then said Elohiym, Call his name Loammi: for you are not my people, and I will not be your Elohiym.

10 Yet the number of the children of Yisra’el shall be as the sand of the seawhich cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, You are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, You are the sons of the living Elohiym.

11 Then shall the children of Yahuwdah (Judah) and the children of Yisra’el be gathered together, and appoint themselves one head, and they shall come up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Yizra’el (Jezreel)

*Note: this name of Howshea’s firstborn son is “Jezreel,” which is #H3157 and it means “Elohiym sows.” This name is not to be confused with #H3478 which is “Yisra’el” which means “Elohiym prevails.”

Even though YaHuWaH sowed the nation of Yisra’el like seeds to the gentile nations, he promised to bring them back again in the last days, to their own land as seen in Hosea 1:11.

Howshea (Hosea) 8:8 Yisra’el is swallowed up: now shall they be among the Gentiles as a vessel wherein is no pleasure.

In Hosea 4:17, we are shown the reason why YaHuWaH would no longer be their Almighty one: “Ephrayim is joined unto idols: let him alone.”

As you can see, the number one reason why YaHuWaH sent the House of Ephrayim away to the nations, is because of their false pagan holidays. Today, the American Christian Church is no different, for they are celebrating all the same holidays offered up to Baal or Moloch, which is why the national sin of abortion continues. 

The spirit behind abortion is embedded in all these pagan holidays, that have their origins from the Tower of Babel. These holidays today are called: Christmas, Easter, Valentines Day, Halloween etc. Many Christians protest against abortion, yet they unknowingly are perpetuating the spirit behind abortion when they continue to keep these abominations:

Amowc (Amos) 5:

21 I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies.

22 Though you offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts.

23 Take you away from me the noise of your songs; for I will not hear the melody of your viols.

24 But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.

25 Have you offered unto me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Yisra’el?

26 But you have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your imagesthe star of your godwhich you made to yourselves.

27 Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, says YHWH, whose name is The Elohiym of hosts.

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 1:14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts, my soul hates: they are a trouble unto meI am weary to bear them.

The nation of Yisra’el became known as “gentiles” (goyim) when they were sent away to the nations by YaHuWaH. As you can see from the image of Moloch, (above), it looks like a golden bull or a cow with the body of a man. In Psalm 22, King David wrote a Messianic prophecy about our Messiah when he hung on the tree:

Tehilliym (Psalm) 22:12 Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.

The “bull” being symbolic of the House of Ephrayim (who had assimilated into the nations), is obviously about how the Romans (gentiles) were mocking him, while he hung on the tree. Even the House of Judah shouted “Crucify him!” They too were also behaving as gentiles at this point, for they had teamed up with the Romans to kill their own Messiah.

This is the same image of a bull with the body of a man that is worshiped today in Freemasonry, called “Baphomet.” The entire structure of Americas religious and political leadership is based on the principles of Freemasonry and Satanism. 

America is no different than the nation of Yisra’el (Ephrayim), when they began to imitate and practice the same abominations of the heathen nations. They too were behaving more like bulls (animals) than humans. As we read the rebuke that YaHuWaH had for the House of Ephrayim, I cannot help but see the striking similarity between America and Ephrayim:

Howshea (Hosea) 9:

13 Ephrayim, as I saw Tyrus, is planted in a pleasant place: but Ephrayim shall bring forth his children to the murderer.

14 Give them, O YHWH: what will you give? give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts.

15 All their wickedness is in Gilgal: for there I hated them: for the wickedness of their doings I will drive them out of mine houseI will love them no more: all their princes are revolters.

16 Ephrayim is smitten, their root is dried up, they shall bear no fruit: yea, though they bring forth, yet will I slay even the beloved fruit of their womb.

17 My Elohiym will cast them away, because they did not hearken unto him: and they shall be wanderers among the nations.

However, in the last days, we shall see Ephrayim become full or fat with the olive oil that comes from the House of Yahuwdah (Judah). For Ephrayim will finally return to YaHuWaH, and he will forsake his idols. Pictured here is the prophet Hosea and his backsliding, whoring wife, Gomer returning to him. Gomer symbolizes backsliding Ephrayim (Yisrael) returning to YaHuWaH:

Howshea (Hosea) 14:

I will heal their backslidingI will love them freelyfor mine anger is turned away from him.

5 I will be as the dew unto Yisra’el: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.

His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive tree, and his smell as Lebanon.

7 They that dwell under his shadow shall return; they shall revive as the corn, and grow as the vine: the scent thereof shall be as the wine of Lebanon.

Ephrayim shall say, What have I to do any more with idols? I have heard him, and observed him: I am like a green fir tree. From me is your fruit found.

Yahuwshuwa ha’Mashiyach was sent to restore the House of Ephrayim (back to the marriage covenant), after the Assyrians were used to chastise them. In Ephesians 2, Sha’uwl (Paul) declared that those who were once “afar off,” were at one time “Gentiles in the flesh,” but they are now part of the “Commonwealth of Yisra’el!” Paul wrote that they are no longer strangers or foreigners!”

Messiah Yahuwshuwa came to bring these “Lost Sheep” of the House of Ephrayim back to the covenant, and to restore them back to his Sabbaths, his true name, and his seven annual feasts!

In the last days, Ephrayim will be joined back to the House of Yahuwdah (Judah), according to Ezekiel 37:16-17, and they will no longer be called “Two Houses of Yisra’el.” They shall have one king (Yahuwshuwa), and they will be one house again united under him.

Seven Fat Cows Represent Rachel & the Kingdom of Judah, Who Become Skinny in the Last Days

The history of the “Two Houses of Yisra’el” provides the foundation for us to understand Pharaohs two dreams.

In Genesis 29:18-20, we learn that Ya’aqob (Jacob) worked for seven years in order to be married to Rachel. However, on the night that he was supposed to be married to her, he discovered that he had been tricked into marrying Leah instead. Ya’aqob then asked his father-in-law, Laban “Why did you trick me?” Laban replied “Fulfill Leah’s week, and I will give you Rachel also” (Genesis 29:27).

Thus, Ya’aqob (Jacob) married Leah first, and then, (after seven days), he was able to marry Rachel as well (Genesis 29:28). However, he did agree to work yet another seven years for Rachel. 

The Ancient Hebrew Betrothal

In an ancient Hebrew betrothal, the young man would go to the home of his beloved, and he would “knock on the door,” (Revelation 3:20). If the young woman opened the door, (and invited the young man into the home for supper), that was a sign that she was agreeing to his marriage proposal. 

At this point, the young man would present a written marriage agreement to his beloved, called a “ketubah,” and her father would “write his name,” on the agreement, to solidify the engagement. Revelation 14:1 says that the 144,000 have “Their Fathers name written in their foreheads.” 

This was done to seal the marriage covenant. Jeremiah 31:31 says that the bride will have the Towrah (Mosaic Law) Written in her heart and mind,” as part of the Renewed Covenant. The bride, the groom, and the father, would then eat a meal together, that included bread and wine to seal the engagement. 

After this, the bridegroom would go away to “prepare a place,” for his bride in his fathers house. Our Messiah said that he was going away to prepare a place for his bride in his Fathers house (John 14:2), which is in heaven.

The groom would build an apartment, as an addition to his fathers house. This would explain why the bride “Follows the lamb, (the bridegroom) wherever he goes, to his Fathers house,” on Mount Zion in the New Jerusalem (Revelation 14:1). The bridegroom would then leave his Fathers house (at the appointed time), to go and take his wife to himself. 

The bride and groom would elope, and go away for “seven days” into a set-apart place called the “chuppah,” or bridal chamber (Psalm 19:5, Joel 2:16). Following their seven-day honeymoon in the grooms fathers house, the couple would return to the brides home, for yet another seven days to celebrate the wedding reception with their friends and and family. Thus, the bride and groom share seven days of intimacy, followed by another seven days of celebration.

In the future, the bride will return with Messiah riding on white horses in Revelation 19. They will then celebrate “The Marriage Supper of the Lamb” during the week of Sukkot or The Feast of Tabernacles.

Thus, the total amount of days for an ancient Hebrew wedding was fourteen days, (seven days for the honeymoon, and another seven days for the wedding reception). This is the reason why both Jacob & Joseph worked for two sets of seven years. Their ministries represented two brides (each represented by seven years) for which our Messiah came to redeem.

Seven Skinny Cows” Represent Leah & the Kingdom of Ephrayim/Yisrael, Who Become Fat in the Last Days

In the future, the bride of Messiah (typified in Leah) will be married first to the bridegroom on the Feast of Trumpets (
Teruw’ah). This bride will immediately go to Mount Tziyown (Zion) in the New Jerusalem for a seven-day honeymoon in the chuppah. 

Revelation 14:1 says that “The Lamb, and the 144,000 (his redeemed bride) are standing on Mount Zion, having their Father’s name in their foreheads.” Revelation 14:4 identifies these 144,000 as being “wise virgins” (Matthew 25:6-7), for they are not defiled by the Mother Harlot Church (the woman in Revelation 17). I highly recommend my other blog entitled “Who Are the 144,00?” 

This first bride is called “The first-fruits unto Elohiym, and to the Lamb,” for she follows the lamb wherever he goes. And where does the  bridegroom go? To his Fathers house in the New Jerusalem!

In Jeremiah 30:7, we read about an end-time prophecy called “Jacob’s Time of Trouble.” In Genesis 31:41, Jacob described his twenty troublesome years with Laban, citing fourteen years for both Leah & Rachel, and another six years for his cattle. At the end of these twenty years of trouble, Jacob left, and took his family. 

These 20 years of trouble correlate to the three fall feasts, which begin on the 1st day of the 7th month of Ethaniym/Tishri and culminate on the 21st day of the 7th month of Ethaniym/Tishri. The first day of Tishri begins in the evening, (at the sighting of the new moon), and thus, the first day was spent sanctifying the moon. Therefore, the festivities did not begin until the 2nd day of Ethaniym/Tishri

Our Messiah was born at sundown, at the end of the 1st of Tishri (just as it was about to become the second day of Tishri). In the future, the bride of Messiah will also be born into her new resurrected body at the end of the first day of Tishri. Thus, we can see, that from the 2nd day of the seventh month, (Yom Teruw’ah), until the 21st day of the seventh month, (the last day of Sukkot), these twenty days detail what is called “Jacob’s Time of Trouble” (Jeremiah 30:7). 

The Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teruw’ah), symbolizes the wedding between Ya’aqob (Jacob) and Leah for seven days. Then, on the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), it symbolizes the wedding of Ya’aqob (Jacob) and his beloved Rachel. 

Five days later, on the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot), will commence the seven days of feasting with the guests from the gentile nations (who are saved), yet they may or may not yet be part of the bride. If they make it in to the Millennium, they will have a chance to learn “Every jot and tittle of the Towrah & Prophets” (Matthew 5:17-19), and hopefully, they will become part of the New Jerusalem bride at the end of the thousand year reign (Revelation 21:1-2). 

In Leviticus 16:14-19, the instructions for the High Priest every year on Yom Kippur are detailed. The High Priest (Kohen Gadowl) would mix the blood of a bullock (symbolic of Leah), and the blood of a goat or lamb (symbolic of Rachel) together, and then, he would sprinkle the “mixed blood” on the mercy seat with his finger “seven times!”

Interestingly, the name “Rachel” means “lamb,” and the name “Leah” means “cow.” Also, the Ten Northern Tribes of the House of Ephrayim were likened unto a “bullock or a heifer” in prophecy. The Two Southern Tribes of the House of Judah were likened unto a “lamb or a goat” in prophecy (Zechariah 10:3; 2nd Chronicles 29:21).

Rachel’s body was buried in Bethlehem-Judah, thus, she is the “mother” of the House of Yahuwdah (Judah), even though it was Leah who gave birth to Yahuwdah (Judah). After King Herod killed the baby boys under two years old, the prophecy in Jeremiah 31:15 was repeated in Matthew 2:18 where it says “Rachel, weeping for her children for they were not.” 

This is because Rachel’s son, Yahuwceph (Joseph) had a dream that all his brothers were going to bow down and serve him (Genesis 37:9-10). Therefore, the sons born to Jacob by Leah, Bilhah & Zilpah (the two handmaidens) all served Joseph after they were reunited to him in Egypt many years later. Hence, Joseph ruled over the ten brothers who plotted to kill him. 

Judah attempted to save Joseph from being killed, when he suggested to the brothers that they could sell him to slave traders in Egypt (Genesis 37:26-27). Joseph’s younger brother Benjamin was still an infant at the time, and therefore, was not present when the ten brothers plotted to throw him into a pit. 

Years later, Judah promised his father Ya’aqob (Jacob) that he would become “Benjamin’s keeper forever” (Genesis 43:9). To this day, Judah & Benjamin are now part of the Two Southern Tribes of Judah, where Rachel’s body was sown into the soil. 

From this, we see a prophetic picture of Yahuwshuwa Messiah, who will rule over the entire House of Yisra’el when he returns. The Ten Northern Tribes of the House of Ephrayim will bow down to Yahuwshuwa, and will serve him, in the same way that Joseph’s ten brothers bowed down and served him in Egypt.

In the same way that Ya’aqob (Jacob) had to work a total of 14 years for both of his brides (Leah & Rachel), and yet another 6 years for Laban’s cattle, these 20 days symbolize the days of the Fall Feasts of YaHuWaH.

The Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teruw’ah) is on the 1st day of the 7th Month of Ethaniym/Tishri.

The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) is on the 10th day of the 7th Month of Ethaniym/Tishri.

The Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) is on the 15th day of the 7th Month of Tishri and it lasts for 8 days until the 22nd day of the 7th Month of Ethaniym/Tishri.

The first two days of the Feast of Trumpets is a “waiting period” for the bride will be “caught up” to meet the bridegroom “On the third day.” This is in keeping with the pattern of our Messiah, when he was “Three and three nights in the heart of the earth” (Matthew 12:40). The two witnesses in Revelation 11:11-15, will be killed by the beast, and subsequently, have their dead bodies laying in the streets for “Three and a half days,” before they are raised up “At the seventh and last trumpet!”

Both brides (typified in Leah & Rachel), will become only one bride when Messiah returns on Yom Kippur. For it is at this time, that the High Priest would “mix the blood” of these two animals (the bullock and the goat). This means that both families (Leah & Rachel, Ephraiym & Judah) will become only one family, or one stick (Ezekiel 37:16-17) in the hand of YaHuWaH at Messiah’s return! 

Yahuwshuwa is our High Priest, Malkiy-Tzedeq (Melchizedek), and he will make both Houses “one new man!” (Ephesians 2:15).

We are now going to see how these two periods of “seven years” of Ya’aqob (Jacob) working for his two brides, correlate to Yahuwceph (Joseph) working two sets of “seven years” for Pharaoh.

The first thing we will observe, is that the Hebrew word for “feast” is “mowed” (#H4150), and it also means “Conventionally one year.” This means that “seven years” are equivalent to “seven feasts.”

7 years = 7 feasts!

Our Messiah fulfilled all seven feasts at his first coming, and he will fulfill them again at his second coming!

To learn more, see my blog entitled “What is the Testimony of Messiah?”

Hence, seven skinny cows, who swallowed up seven fat cows, symbolize how our Messiah would fulfill seven feasts at his first coming for those in the Kingdom of Judah (typified in Rachel).

Rachel was the more outwardly attractive bride. She looked good to Jacob. Similarly, the House of Judah “looked good outwardly,” because they gave the appearance of obeying the Towrah. However, they betrayed their bridegroom, by rejecting him as Messiah. Rachel did the same thing when she hid those idols from her father, and from her husband.

It reminds me of Matthew 23:25, when our Messiah chided the religious leaders of his day, calling them hypocrites, and blind guides, for he said to them “For you make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within, they are full of extortion and excess.” 

The seven skinny cows symbolize the “Lost Sheep of the House of Ephrayim” who were still largely in exile at his first coming. Many of them had returned from the Assyrian Captivity, but the House of Judah would not allow them to assimilate into their kingdom. These were the “Samaritans,” that wanted to be part of the Kingdom of Judah, but they were prevented from entering the temple, or having fellowship with the Yahuwdiym (Jews).

The religious rulers of Judah had many man-made rules and traditions, that forbade the gentiles from learning the Towrah, and returning back to the covenant. These lost sheep were symbolic of “skinny cows,” because they had “leanness of soul.”

When the children of Yisra’el were in the wilderness, YaHuWaH gave them what they wanted, when they asked for quail, but it brought “leanness to their soul,” because they still had a murmuring and complaining attitude:

Tehilliym (Psalm) 106:15 And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.

In Amos 8:11, we read that YaHuWaH was going to send a famine in the land; not a famine of bread or water, but a famine of hearing the word of YaHuWaH:

Amowc (Amos) 8:11 Behold, the days come, says YHWH Elohiym, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the wordof YHWH.

The Ten Northern Tribes of the House of Ephrayim became like “skinny cows,” because they were not feeding on his word. This is why Yahuwshuwa came to feed his sheep with his word. He also commanded Keefa (Peter) to feed his lambs (John 21:15).

But at Messiah’s second coming, the “Seven fat cows represent 
The Fullness of the Gentiles!”

What does this mean? If Ephrayim was named “Yisra’el” by his grandfather, then how can he be called a “gentile?”

Do you remember what happened to Ephrayim in the book of Hosea? He was “joined to idols,” and because of this, he was sent to the gentile nations. 

But in the last days, The Ten Northern Tribes of the House of Ephrayim (who are still in the nations), will return to the Father, and to his Towrah (instructions), and he will be cleansed by Messiah’s blood, just like the prodigal son in Luke 15!

Thus, we can see that Messiah fulfilled all seven feasts at his first coming for the seven skinny cows (symbolic of the lost sheep) of Ephrayim or former gentiles. And at his second coming, the gentiles will be “full” or “fat” when they begin to obey the Towrah of YaHuWaH. Thus, the seven cows that were once skinny, and sickly, will become full or fat in the end of days, because they are feeding on the Towrah!

The term “Fullness of the Gentiles” means those born-again believers in the nations, who think that they are “gentiles,” will be “brought near” to the covenant through Messiah’s blood. They will no longer be called “gentiles,” for they will then come into the “Fullness of their identity!” 

These gentiles will no longer behave like bulls, but they will begin to behave like sheep (typified in the House of Judah). In other words, the House of Ephrayim will begin to behave more like the House of Judah by obeying Towrah.

The seven fat cows at Messiah’s second coming, represent the seven congregations in the book of Revelation, who are now coming into the “fullness” of their identity.

Yahuwshuwa has “reversed the curse” of Egypt. Instead of seven skinny cows swallowing up seven fat cows in the days of Joseph, Messiah will cause seven fat cows (symbolic of the born-again gentiles), to swallow up seven skinny cows!

This means that Ephrayim (who used to be the skinny, ugly, and sickly cows), will supersede the House of Judah in fruitfulness, and thus provoking them to jealousy (Romans 10:19; 11:11). We shall see in the verses below, that Leah represents the skinny and weak cows, but Rachel represents the beautiful and fat cows. Notice the similarity in the wording used in the King James Version vernacular:

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 29:17 Leah was tender eyed; but Rachel was beautiful and well favoured.

Now, let
s compare Pharaohs dream to the above verse to see the similarity:

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 41:

1 And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the river.

2 And, behold, there came up out of the river seven well favoured kine (heifers) and fatfleshed; and they fed in a meadow.

*Note: Rachel was well-favoured, thus were these seven well-favoured heifers (kine) in Pharaohs dream.

In both of these passages (Genesis 29:17 & Genesis 41:2), the same Hebrew words are used to describe Rachel, as well as the well-favoured heifers.

The Hebrew word for “well” is “yapheh” (#H3303) and the Hebrew word for “favoured” is “mareh” (#H4758).

#3303 yapheh yaw-feh’ from 3302; beautiful (literally or figuratively): beautiful, beauty, comely, fair (-est, one), + goodly, pleasant, well.

#4758 mar’eh mar-eh’ from 7200; a view (the act of seeing); also an appearance (the thing seen), whether (real) a shape (especially if handsome, comeliness; often plural the looks), or (mental) a vision:-- apparently, appearance(-reth), as soon as beautiful(-ly), countenance, fair, favoured, form, goodly, to look (up) on (to), look(-eth), pattern, to see, seem, sight, visage, vision.

What this means, is that Rachel was beautiful to look at, but Leah was not. Similarly, the seven fat cows were beautiful to look upon, but the skinny cows were not. Now, we will also observe the similarity in words used to describe Leah as the “ill-favoured and leanfleshed” heifers.

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 41:

3 And, behold, seven other kine (heifers) came up after them out of the river, ill favoured and leanfleshed; and stood by the other kine (heifers) upon the brink of the river.

4 And the ill favoured and leanfleshed kine (heifers) did eat up the seven well favoured and fat kine (heifers). So Pharaoh awoke.

In Genesis 29:17, Leah was “tender-eyed,” and this word for “tender” is the Hebrew word #7390 “rak,” which means “weak, tender, faint-hearted.” The word for “eyed” is “ayin” which is #5869, and it means “an eye” but it also means “outward appearance, countenance.” This means that Leah was not pretty to look at or pleasing to the eye.

Similarly, in Genesis 41:3, the Hebrew word for “ill” is #7451 “rah’ah,” and it has the following definitions: “bad, evil, adversity, affliction, calamity, distress, misery, naughty, wicked, wrong.” 

Hence, the compound word “ill-favoured” means that these cows were bad-looking. These cows are also described as “lean-fleshed,” and this word for “lean” is “daq” (#1851) in Hebrew which means “crushed, thin, dwarfed.”

One could say that Rachel was voluptuous and had a nicely shaped body, but Leah probably had anorexia, and she looked pale, weak and too skinny. Because Leah was not pretty, (and unloved by Jacob), and that is why YaHuWaH compensated her with more children. 

In Pharaohs dream, the seven thin ears of corn were blasted by the east wind. This reminds me of the prophecy in Ezekiel 19:12, where it speaks of Jerusalem (the mother lioness), who raised up two lions whelps (Judah & Ephrayim), but her fruit was dried up by the “east wind.” 

What does the east wind represent? In Ezekiel 8:16, the men were “Worshiping the sun towards the east with their faces towards the east.” 

This is because the sun rises in the east, hence, they were worshiping the sun. Those who worship the pagan sun-god, would face the east while worshiping. In Hosea 12:1, it says that Ephrayim “Feeds on wind, and follows after the east wind.” Once again, this means pagan sun-god worship, and all the false holidays that are offered up to Tammuz (Ezekiel 8:14).

In Ephesians 4:14, the Apostle Shauwl (Paul) warned about not being “Tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine,  by those who would try and seduce the sheep with false teachings. The east wind, therefore symbolizes pagan sun-god worship, and all the false pagan holidays that go along with it.

Continuing with Pharaohs dream:

Bereshiyth(Genesis) 41:

5 And he slept and dreamed the second time: and, behold, seven ears of corn came up upon one stalk, rank and good.

6 And, behold, seven thin ears and blasted with the east wind sprung up after them.

7 And the seven thin ears devoured the seven rank and full ears. And Pharaoh awoke, and, behold, it was a dream.

Thus, we can liken the seven skinny and unattractive cows to the Ten Northern Tribes of the House of Ephrayim at Messiahs first coming. For at that time, many of them had not yet returned home after the Assyrian Captivity. But this is because the Two Southern Tribes of the House of Judah were trying to prevent them from returning. 

In the story of the prodigal son (in Luke 15), the younger son (who squandered his inheritance), typifies the House of Ephrayim, and the skinny cows, at Messiahs first coming. The older brother in this parable, symbolizes Judah, and the fat cows, at Messiahs first coming.

However, at the second coming of Messiah, the roles will be reversed, thus the reason why Jacob crossed his hands over! At the second coming, the House of Judah will represent the younger brother (as well as the unhealthy and sickly cows). The House of Ephrayim will represent the older brother, and the healthy, beautiful cows.

In the story of the prodigal, when the younger son returned home and repented, the older brother was not happy about it. The older brother (symbolic of Judah) felt that his wasteful, and irresponsible brother should not receive a double portion inheritance from their father, especially, since he had squandered the first one.  

When the younger brother came home, the father slaughtered for him the “fatted calf” or a fat cow! 

This means that the Heavenly Father wants to give the prodigal sons the same blessing as the older son, Judah! 

Therefore, when the House of Ephrayim returns to the Towrah (Fathers instructions), he will be joined to his older brother (Judah). This is when he will become “fat.” This is what is meant by “The Fullness of the Gentiles.” 

In Romans 11:25 Paul explained that “Blindness in part happened unto Yisrael.” In other words, they were “weak-eyed,” like Leah. But when the gentile believers in Messiah come into the fullness of their identity, (by accepting Messiah, and obeying Towrah), that is when they will become full and fat with their inheritance. 

Paul also explained in Romans 11:17, that when the “wild branches” (gentiles) partake of the root and the “fatness” of the olive tree (in other words, the anointing oil that comes from the olives), that is when they will become full or fat.

Because the House of Ephrayim (Yisra’el) fell away from the Towrah (Mosaic Law), it meant that the besowrah (gospel) would be preached to the nations, wherever they had been scattered:

Romiym (Romans) 11:12 Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fullness?

Because the good news of Messiah has gone to the nations (to find these lost sheep from the House of Ephrayim), all the “gentile companions” would also hear the gospel, and be enriched by it as well.

The House of Ephrayim coming back to obeying Towrah, has resulted in “Riches to the rest of the world.”  This is what will cause the Yahuwdiym (Jews) to be “provoked to jealousy.” This began happening in 1948, when the Modern State of Israel officially was reborn as a nation (Isaiah 66:7-10). 

Although the Zionists and the Jesuits, have infiltrated their government, YaHuWaH has used the rebirth of Yisra’el to bring the gentiles into their Hebraic Roots. And because the gentiles have begun to embrace the Towrah, the Jewish people are being provoked to jealousy. In 1948, there was a documented 1,000 Messianic Jews in the land. Today, there is a documented 50,000 Messianic Jews living in the land. These numbers are reported by “One For Israel Ministries.”

Romiym (Romans) 11:25 For I would not, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Yisra’eluntil the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.

In Romans 11:17-21, Paul uses a metaphor of the “natural branches” to describe the original branches of the olive tree (Yisrael), who were abiding in the vine (Messiah). 

But Sha’uwl (Paul) uses the “wild branches” as a metaphor of the branches that were not part of the olive tree (Yisra’el), yet they are grafted into the tree when they have faith in Messiah. 

These two branches are symbolized by two sides of the menorah. The middle branch of the menorah represents Messiah. He told us that he is the main vine of the tree, and his followers are his “branches” (John 15:5). 

Three of the branches of the menorah (on the right) represent the House of Judah (natural branches); and the other three (on the left), represent the House of Ephrayim (wild branches). There are a total of six branches, and they are both connected to the main branch or trunk of the tree, which is Messiah, the seventh branch. 

At creation, YaHuWaH created mankind on day #6, hence it is prophetically fitting that there are six branches on a menorah, attached to the middle or seventh branch. In Zechariah 4:2, we are shown that the two olive trees (symbolic of Judah & Ephrayim) give oil to the seven-branched menorah (symbolic of the seven congregations in Revelation). 

Yahuwshuwa even explained this mystery in Revelation 1:20 when he said that the “Seven golden candlesticks are the seven assemblies.” 

This brings us to the seven feasts of Yisrael, that we are commanded to keep forever. The seven-branched menorah in the temple had to be filled daily with olive oil, in order to keep it burning, thus creating light. The menorah is deliberately made to look like a tree. 

When all seven branches of the menorah are filled with olive oil, this means that all seven assemblies in the book of Revelation will be ready to meet the bridegroom. 

This is precisely why Yahuwshuwa fulfilled all seven feasts at his first coming, for the seven “skinny cows” who were “ill-favoured” weak, sickly, and malnourished. Why were they malnourished? It is because they were not allowed to come near the temple to hear the Towrah & Prophets. 

The House of Yahuwdah (Judah) created man-made ordinances which kept the lost sheep from coming near the temple to hear the word of Yah. They built up a wall around the outer court, and if any gentile wanted to come near the temple (to hear the word) being preached, they would be stoned to death. 

This is what Shauwl (Paul) was referring to in Colossians 2:14 when he said that Messiah came to “Blot out the ordinances that were against us.” In Ephesians 2:14 he said that Messiah came to “Break down that middle wall of partition” that divided the House of Ephrayim from the House of Yahuwdah (Judah). 

Yahuwshuwa abolished in his flesh “the enmity” (hatred) between these Two Houses of Yisrael (Jews & Gentiles). At his second coming, Yahuwshuwa will also fulfill the seven feasts again (just like Jacob), who worked an additional seven years for Rachel, as she typifies the House of Yahuwdah (Judah). 

In the same way that Yahuwceph (Joseph) fulfilled seven years of famine (for the skinny cows), Messiah fulfilled seven feasts for the lost sheep. But Messiah will also fulfill seven feasts again for the seven fat cows, which is the House of Judah (typified in Rachel).

In Revelation 19:10 it says that the “Testimony of Yahuwshuwa is the Spirit of Prophecy.”

The Seven Feasts are the “Testimony of Yahuwshuwa,” because they declare his testimony as follows:

1.) Passover (Pesach): The death of Yahuwshuwa Messiah on the tree as our Passover Lamb.

2.) Feast of Unleavened Bread (Chag Matzah): The burial of Yahuwshuwa Messiah.

3.) First Fruits (Yom ha’Bikkuwriym): Yahuwshuwa’s true resurrection day. He went into the lowest parts of the earth, and brought before the Father “The first fruits” of men’s souls (Ephesians 4:8; 1st Corinthians 15:20-23; James 1:18; Revelation 14:4).

4.) Feast of Weeks (Shabuwoth) or Pentecost: Yahuwshuwa immersed (baptized) his followers with the Ruwach ha’Qodesh (Holy Spirit) and fire, as he promised; He also wrote the Towrah (Mosaic Law) in our hearts and minds, as a sign of the renewed marriage covenant.

5.) Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teruah): Yahuwshuwa’s date of birth on September 11th 3 B.C. The Father “announced his son” with a great sound of a trumpet into the world. This will also be the future catching away of the bride at “The last trumpet” (1st Corinthians 15:51-54), when she also is “born” into immortality. 

To learn more about the birth of Messiah, see my other blog: “When Was the Messiah of Israel Born?” 

The first Adam was also born on the 1st day of the 7th month of Tishri when YaHuWaH “Breathed into Adam the breath of life” on “The day of blowing.” Hence, it is fitting that Yahuwshuwa (the last Adam, according to 1st Corinthians 15:45) would also be born on the 1st day of the 7th month of Tishri as well.

6.) Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur): Yahuwshuwa was circumcised as an infant on Yom Kippur, on the evening of the 9th day of Tishri (8 days after his birth, on the evening of the 1st of Tishri, going into the 2nd day of Tishri). This was a foreshadowing of the “Sprinkling of his blood for the nations” (Isaiah 52:15). 

At the age of 30, he also announced on Yom Kippur that he was fulfilling Isaiah 61 as “The Anointed One” (Mashiyach), who was to come. He also  proclaimed “The Acceptable Year of YaHuWaH,” as the High Priest, Melchizedek, when he began his ministry. It was the function of the High Priest to declare “The Acceptable Year” on Yom Kippur, on a Jubilee Year. That function was given to Aharown (Aaron) and his sons (Numbers 10:2).

For our Messiah to be announcing “The Acceptable Year,” as one from the Tribe of Yahuwdah (Judah), (and not Levi), the people had to be astonished! 

He was clearly showing them that the office of the “Kohan Gadowl” (High Priest) was being restored back to the Order of Malkiy-Tzedeq (Melchizedek), who is said to have “sprang out of Judah” (Hebrews 7:14).

He also became the sacrificial goat at his baptism, because baptism is a symbol of death (Romans 6:3-4). But he also fulfilled the pattern of the “scapegoat,” by taking away sin into the wilderness for 40 days, never to return (as far as the east is from the west) for those who repent. 

When he emerged from the wilderness, he then acted as our High Priest, when he read the prophecy of Isaiah 61, thus declaring that he was now our Kinsman Redeemer, (and our High Priest), after the order of Melchizedek (Luke 4:18-21).

*Note: Yom Kippur is the only feast that Yahuwshuwa fulfilled twice at his first coming. He first fulfilled it at his circumcision as an infant, and then again, at the beginning of his ministry as Melchizedek, (when he emerged from his forty-day fast in the wilderness). Why did he do this feast twice? For the “twin goats!”

The twin goats symbolize both Houses of Yisrael.

7.) Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkoth): Yahuwshuwa dwelled in a sukkah with his parents during this seven-day feast shortly after his birth.

8.) Weekly Sabbath (Shabbath): Yahuwshuwa resurrected on Saturday night just before sundown (just before the first day of the week) “three days and three nights” after his Wednesday Passover crucifixion (in the midst of the week according to Daniel 9:27). 

This is why he declared “I am Master of the Sabbath.” Yahuwshuwa will fulfill the Sabbath Millennium in the 6,000th year from creation, thus taking us into the 7th Millennium. This will be a thousand years years of rest from the devil, as he will be chained up in the bottomless pit during this time. In 2nd Peter 3:8, we are told that “One day is like one thousand years with YaHuWaH.”

In this blog, I give undeniable proof that Yahuwshuwa Messiah was not born on the Feast of Tabernacles, as traditionally taught by Messianic Jews: “When Was the Real Messiah Born, & Why Does it Matter?”

He was born two weeks earlier on the Feast of Trumpets, and thus he fulfilled all seven trumpet blasts for seven months of feasts, as seen in Joshua 6:4-16. 

At his second coming, our Messiah has yet to fulfill seven more trumpets from Revelation 8:2-6 for seven months of feasts. Just like Yaaqob (Jacob), and his son Yahuwceph (Joseph), who both fulfilled two periods of seven years.

Yahuwshuwa has already fulfilled seven trumpets for seven months of feasts at his first coming; and he will fulfill seven trumpets for seven months of feasts again at his second coming. 

BinYamiyn, Son of the Right Hand 

Just before Rachel was about to die (giving birth to Benjamin), she named him “Binoni,” meaning “Son of my sorrow.” But Jacob changed his name to “Binyamin,” meaning “Son of the right hand.” Little did Jacob realize, that this name was a prophetic utterance, for it would later on be through Benjamin, that the entire family would be reunited in Egypt with Joseph.

I believe that Rachel repented before she died, for she probably realized her sin of hiding those idols, which caused her to come under the curse of Jacobs words. This would explain why she named her baby boy “Son of my sorrow.” It is because Benjamin was used to make the rest of the brothers (especially Judah), sorry for what they did to Joseph.

Jacob uttered a curse, (that I am sure he would later regret), for it caused the death of his beloved, Rachel. Jacob spoke these words to his father-in-law, Laban in Genesis 31:32:

“With whomsoever you find your gods, let him not live: before our brethren discern you what is yours with me, and take it to you. For Yaaqob (Jacob) knew not that Rachel had stolen them.”

This reminds me of when our Messiah also spoke a curse to that fig tree in Mark 11:13-21 (symbolic of  Yisra’el), commanding it not to bear fruit.

But there is also a prophetic correlation between Jacobs curse, (which caused Rachel to die giving birth to Benjamin), and Joseph tricking his brothers, by hiding a silver cup in the sack of Benjamin. You will notice the similarity in the language of Genesis 31:32 & Genesis 44:9. 

In both passages, somebody is being cursed with death, for having stolen something. Rachel (who typifies Judah), stole her fathers idols, and then lied about having them. Benjamin was innocent, (and had not stolen the silver cup of Joseph), but he was falsely accused of taking it.

Joseph knew that by scaring them into thinking they were going to lose Benjamin, that they would finally admit their sinful actions towards their brother Joseph. Benjamin was being used to make the others (whom Judah was in charge of) sorry for their sins. 

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 44:

9 With whomsoever of your servants it be found, both let him die, and we also will be my lord’s bondmen (slaves). 

12 And he searched, and began at the eldest, and left at the youngest: and the cup was found in Benjamins sack.

The silver cup is indicative of a soon-coming Jubilee year, when our Messiah shall return. For it is in a Jubilee year that the High Priests were commanded to sound two silver trumpets for both Houses of Yisrael (Numbers 10:2). 

What is the prophetic significance of Rachel dying while bearing Binyamiyn (Benjamin)? Rachel symbolizes the Kingdom of Judah, as they gave birth to the Messiah (whom they unknowingly killed). And this resulted in their kingdom also dying in 70 A.D. during the Roman Siege. Just as Jacob spoke those word curses over Rachel, so did our Messiah speak death to Jerusalem, and the fig tree (Matthew 23:37, Luke 13:34).

And how is Benjamin the key to restoring Joseph back to his wayward brothers? I believe that Benjamin was unwittingly being used to “reverse the curses,” brought onto the family because of Josephs jealous brothers, and Rachels idols!

Benjamin was the youngest of Jacobs sons, and his tribe was the smallest of the twelve tribes. This speaks to the idea that the “The last shall be first, and the first shall be last” (Matthew 20:16).

Benjamin was the youngest, but he became great through humility. In Matthew 18:4, our Messiah taught us how to become the greatest in the kingdom. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

As I have previously pointed out, Rachel symbolizes the Kingdom of Judah, because her body was buried in “Ephrath,” aka “Bethlehem-Judah.” Therefore, Rachel typifies the the Jewish people living in the land of Yisrael in these last days.

The Two Southern Tribes of the Kingdom of Judah include the Tribe of Benjamin, ever since the two kingdoms split, after King Solomon died. I believe it is because Judah made a promise to his father, Jacob when they were getting ready to take Benjamin to Egypt. 

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 43:9 I will be surety for him; of my hand shall you require him: if I bring him not unto you, and set him before you, then let me bear the blame for ever. 

Judah was now accepting the blame for what happened to Joseph, for he was now willing to take the blame should anything happen to Benjamin. This is why Benjamin & Judah became intrinsically part of the Southern Kingdom.

The same sorrow that Josephs brothers felt, (as they wept over him), is the same sorrow that the House of Judah will experience, when they finally see the one whom they pierced at the Mount of Olives (Zechariah 12:10).

There are two famous people in Scripture, from the Tribe of Benjamin, that were instrumental in bringing deliverance to the House of Judah & Yisra’el. They are Queen Esther & the Apostle Sha’uwl (Paul). Benjamin is the tribe that will be instrumental in bringing the lost sheep back to their Messiah, (just as Benjamin was instrumental in causing his brothers to reconcile with Joseph).

See these two blogs, which validate the ministries of Esther & Sha’uwl (Paul):

In the same way that Benjamin was used to bring the ten wayward brothers to Joseph, so this tribe will be used to bring the lost sheep to their Messiah in the end of days. I believe this metaphor is showing us the that the inspired letters of Sha’uwl (Paul) are the instrument that brings them back. 

Additionally, the meaning of the name “Binyamin,” is “Son of the right hand,” which is a picture of Messiah, who is now seated at the right hand of power in heaven. Yahuwceph (Joseph) is a prophetic picture of Messiah at his first coming, as he portrayed the “Suffering Servant.” 

But what if Benjamin is a prophetic picture of those who belong to Messiah? What if the 144,000, are like Benjamin, once they are resurrected as “one new man?” Could it be that the followers of Messiah, are like Benjamin when they preach the good news of Messiah to the lost sheep?

Do you remember the famous words of our Messiah?

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 23:39  For I say unto you, You shall not see me henceforth, till you shall say, Blessed is he that comes in the name of YHWH. 

This sounds eerily familiar to what Joseph said to his estranged brothers, before they were reconciled to him:

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 43:3 And Yahuwdah (Judah) spoke unto him, saying, The man did solemnly protest unto us, saying, You shall not see my face, except your brother be with you. 

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 43:5 But if you will not send him, we will not go down: for the man said unto us, You shall not see my face, except your brother be with you.

In the same way that Joseph warned his brothers, that they would not see his face, (unless they brought Benjamin with them), our Messiah made a similar statement, declaring that the Kingdom of Judah would not see him again, until they recognize him as the Mashiyach.

Joseph’s brothers did not recognize him, until he told them his true Hebrew name, “Yahuwceph.” Up until that point, they only knew him as Zaphnath-paaneah, which has a “double meaning!” 

In Egyptian, it means “savior.” However, in Hebrew, it means “Revealer of a secret!” Our Messiah’s hidden identity will be known to those lost sheep, just as Joseph revealed his true name to his lost brothers. But none of this would have been possible, unless they brought Benjamin with them. And this means that the Kingdom of Judah must finally accept the Messianic believers who are  the “Sons of the right hand of power!”

A Double Portion of  “Sevens” Cut in Half

As I previously stated, Joseph was the first one in Scripture to inherit “a double portion” of all that his father Jacob had. This double portion inheritance is born out in the fact YaHuWaH has promised to restore everything that has been stolen from his covenant people, his bride. He tells us that instead of confusion and shame, we shall inherit a double portion:

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 61:6 But you shall be named the Priests of YHWH: men shall call you the Ministers of our Elohiym: you shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall you boast yourselves. 

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) Isa 61:7 For your shame you shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them. 

Back in 2004, I questioned YaHuWaH, and asked him “Why did Jacob and Joseph both work two periods of seven years back-to-back, and yet, our Messiah only worked for 3.5 years?” 

I was stunned by his answer! He answered my question with another question “Why did King Solomon almost cut that baby boy in half?”

It was that question, that opened up my understanding, and I realized that this is precisely why the two seven-year periods (back-to-back) for both brides of Jacob, (both Houses of Yisrael), have been “shortened,” or “cut in half!” 

Our Messiah’s ministry was only 3.5 years, followed by a 2,000-year gap in history (the fullness of the gentiles), followed by the ministry of The Two Witnesses, who will pick up where Messiah left off, finishing the 3.5 years (1,260 days).

A Double Portion of  “Cows” With the Number Seven!

On September 20th 2014, (just five days before the Feast of Trumpets), two baby calves were born with a visible #7 on their face. However, the announcement came in the news (about these two baby cows) precisely on September 25th 2014, which happened to fall on the Jewish “Rosh HaShanah” aka “The Feast of Trumpets” (Teruw’ah).

Interestingly, one of the baby cows was given the name “Baby Ben,” after the Pittsburgh Steelers Quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger. The farmers that named this baby cow “Ben,” may have been doing it for a football player, but YaHuWaH had other things in mind. 

What I believe he was showing us, is that 2014-2028 was marking two more Sabbaticals, aka “Shmitta Years” that would take us to the Second Coming of Messiah! 

Do you remember what happened after the seven-year famine in Egypt? Joseph’s brothers were restored back to him, and the rest of the family was provided for!

It is the same scenario that will take place when our Messiah returns, to the Mount of Olives, and the “Lost Sheep” of the House of Yisrael, will finally meet him there, as they will “Look upon him whom they pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for his only son!” (Zechariah 12:10).

The name “Ben,” means “Son,” in Hebrew, and YaHuWaH is getting his “First-born Son, Yisrael” ready for his soon return!

In 2014, why were there two cows with the number seven in plain view upon their heads? 

Everything about Joseph’s life was “doubled.” He had two dreams as a teenager, (for which his brothers became jealous and angry with him). When he was in Egypt, he interpreted two dreams for the cup-bearer, and the baker. 

He finally interpreted two of Pharaoh’s dreams, which caused him to be promoted to second in command to Pharaoh himself. He ruled over the grain in Egypt through seven years of plenty, followed by seven years of famine. Hence, two periods of seven years, back-to-back.

Joseph was given an Egyptian wife, by whom he bore two sons. Finally, Joseph was given “A double portion inheritance” from his father, Jacob (Genesis 48:22). 

Pharaoh saw in his dream, two sets of seven cows, (representing fourteen years). Since 2014, we have seen two cows announced in the news on the Feast of Trumpets, each with the number As of August 6th 2021, I am adding an addendum to this blog, because we are now hearing reports that a world-wide famine is coming in September, right around the Feast of Trumpets.

I believe the message being shown to us since 2014, is that there are only two sabbatical years left, (fourteen years), until the second coming of Messiah, which takes us to 2028. See the links below about these two cows that were born on the Feast of Trumpets 2014.

As of August 6th 2021, I am adding an addendum to this blog, because we are now hearing reports that a world-wide famine is coming in September, right around “The Feast of Trumpets,” aka what the Jewish people call “Rosh haShanah.” The Global Elite are deliberately causing food shortages, because they want to depopulate the world, and they want every person on earth to receive “The Mark of the Beast.” Since 2014, we have had seven years of plenty, but this coming fall, in 2021, we are going to begin having seven years of famine. This famine, will lead right up to the 80th Jubilee, which I believe could possibly be when our Messiah returns!

To understand how I arrived at the year 2027/2028 for a possible year for the Second Coming of Messiah, in the 120th Jubilee, see this blog: “Two Cows with the Number Seven Reveal the Second Coming of Messiah!”
