“All glorious is the princess within [her chamber]; her

gown is interwoven with gold. In embroidered garments she is

led to the king…”

Psalm 45:13-14).

As we saw, the coronation of the King is at Rosh HaShanah.

The wedding at the end of the age will logically occur during

the week between Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur (10 days

later). The wedding feast occurs soon after on the mountains of

Israel (Isa. 25:6). Since the time in the wedding chamber is

seven days (between Tishri 1 and Tishri 10), the wedding cer-

emony is easily placed during that time because everything has

to be concluded by the 10th of Tishri (Yom Kippur). Let’s ex-

amine Yom Kippur and see why.

Feast Of Yom Kippur

As Messiah’s first coming (the suffering servant, a sacrifice

on the cross) was on the 10th day of the first month of the reli-

gious calendar; His second coming, as the victorious king, will

be on the 10th day of the seventh month of the religious cal-

endar (first month of the civil calendar). This ties in with the

former and latter rains mentioned in the book of Joel, among

other places.

Yom Kippur is the Day of Atonement, and is considered

the holiest day in the Jewish year. Every fifty years, there was a

Jubilee on Yom Kippur. All debts were forgiven, all slaves or

captives were released, and all lands were returned to their

rightful owners (Lev. 25:8-55). These are types of works which

are/will be fulfilled by Christ. For example, it is Christ who is,

“to proclaim freedom for the captives…(Isa. 61:1)” In the year

2030 A.D., two days (2,000) years will have elapsed since His
