Here are some Scriptures for
20 However, Yahuah hardened the heart of Pharaoh,
and he did not let the children of Yisra’el go.
21 And Yahuah said to Mosheh, “Stretch out your hand
toward the heavens, and let there be darkness over
the land of Mitsrayim, even a darkness which is
22 And Mosheh stretched out his hand toward the
heavens, and there was thick darkness in all the
land of Mitsrayim for three days.
23 They did not see one another, nor did anyone rise
from his place for three days, while all the
children of Yisra’ĕl had light in their dwellings.
45 And from the sixth hour there was
darkness over all the land, until the ninth hour.
46 And about the ninth hour Yahusha cried out with a
loud voice, saying, “Ěli, Ěli, lemah sheḇaqtani?”
that is, “My Ěl, My Ěl, why have You forsaken Me?”
So could we say that the
three days of darkness in Mitsrayim was in a
likeness of the three hours of darkness at the
impalement; an hour for a day principle?
9 See, the day of Yahuah is coming,
fierce, with wrath and heat of displeasure, to lay
the earth waste, and destroy its sinners from it.
10 For the stars of the heavens and their
constellations do not give off their light. The
sun shall be dark at its rising, and the
moon not send out its light.
11 “And I shall punish the world for its evil, and
the wrong for their crookedness, and shall put an
end to the arrogance of the proud, and lay low the
pride of the ruthless.
3 “Thus said the Master Yahuah, ‘And I
shall spread My net over you with an assembly of
many peoples, and they shall bring you up in My net.
4 ‘And I shall leave you on the land, hurl you out
on the open fields, and make all the birds of the
heavens dwell on you. And with you I shall satisfy
the beasts of all the earth.
5 ‘And I shall put your flesh on the mountains, and
fill the valleys with your height,
6 and water the land with the flow of your blood
unto the mountains, and let streams be filled with
7 ‘And when I extinguish you, I
shall cover the heavens, and make its stars dark. I
shall cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall
not give her light.
8 ‘All the bright lights of the heavens I shall make
dark over you, and I shall bring darkness upon your
land,’ declares the Master Yahuah.
9 ‘And I shall trouble the hearts of many peoples,
when I bring your destruction among the nations,
into the lands which you have not known.
10 ‘And I shall make many peoples appalled at you,
and their sovereigns shall be greatly afraid of you
when I swing My sword before them. And they shall
tremble continually, every man for his own life, in
the day of your fall.’
1 Blow a ram’s horn in Tsiyon, and sound an
alarm in My set-apart mountain! Let all the
inhabitants of the earth tremble, for the day
ofYahuah is coming, for it is near:
2 a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and
thick darkness, like the morning clouds spread over
the mountains – a people many and strong, the like
of whom has never been, nor shall there ever be
again after them, to the years of many generations.
3 Ahead of them a fire has consumed, and behind them
a flame burns. Before them the land is like the
Garden of Ěḏen, and behind them a desert waste. And
from them there is no escape.
4 Their appearance is like the appearance of horses,
and they run like steeds.
5 As the noise of chariots they leap over
mountaintops, as the noise of a flaming fire
consuming stubble, as a mighty people set in battle
6 Before them peoples are in anguish, all faces
7 They run like mighty men, they climb the wall like
men of battle, everyone goes on his way, and they do
not break ranks.
8 And they do not press one another, everyone goes
in his path. They fall among the weapons, but they
do not stop.
9 They rush on the city, they run on the wall. They
climb into the houses, they enter at the windows
like a thief.
10 The earth shall tremble before them, the heavens
shall shake. Sun and moon shall be darkened, and the
stars withdraw their brightness.
11 And Yahuah shall give forth His voice before His
army, for His camp is very great, for mighty is the
doer of His word. For the day of Yahuah is great and
very awesome, and who does bear it?
30 “And I shall give signs in the heavens
and upon the earth: blood and fire and columns of
31 the sun is turned into darkness, and the moon
into blood, before the
coming of the great and awesome day of Yahuah.
32 “And it shall be that everyone who calls on the
Name of Yahuah shall be delivered. For on Mount
Tsiyon and in Yerushalayim there shall be an escape
as Yahuah has said, and among the survivors whom
29 “And immediately after the distress of those days
the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not
give its light, and the stars shall fall from the
heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be
30 “And then the sign of the Son of Aḏam
shall appear in the heaven, and then all
the tribes of the earth shall mourn, and they shall
see the Son of Aḏam coming on the clouds of the
heaven with power and much esteem.
As we can see that there is
going to be a distress before the sun, the moon,
and the stars are darkened. Then after the
darkening then we will see the sign of the Son of
Adam appearing in the heavens.
23 “And you, take heed. See,
I have forewarned you of it all.
24 “But in those days, after that distress,
the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not
give its light,
25 and the stars of heaven
shall fall, and the powers in the heavens shall be
26 “And then they shall see the Son
of Aḏam coming
in the clouds with much power and esteem.
27 “And then He shall send His messengers, and
assemble His chosen ones from the four winds, from
the farthest part of earth to the farthest part of
20 ‘The sun shall be turned into darkness,
and the moon into blood, before the coming
of the great and splendid day of Yahuah.
21 ‘And it shall be that everyone who calls on the
Name of Yahuah shall be saved.’
We know that the day of
Yahuah is darkness and not light. But is the
day of darkness the same day as Yahusha’s
return? Notice what it says in
Acts 2:20 – the sun shall be darkened, the moon
into blood BEFORE the coming of the great and
splendid day of Yahuah. As Mark 13:25 and 26
also explain, the sun shall be darkened, the moon
shall not give its light, the powers of the
heavens shall be shaken and THEN we shall see the
Son of Adam coming in the clouds. Which will
take place after we see the sign of the Son of
Adam as Matt 24:30 also explains. The sign
will be seen the tribes of the earth shall mourn
and they shall see the Son of Adam coming on the
clouds of heaven. Yahusha said no man knows
the day nor the hour but He did not say we would
not know when the destruction would take place,
the day of darkness. So is it possible to
get an idea of when this day of darkness will take
5 What do you do for the appointed meeting, and
in the day of the festival of Yahuah?
6 For look, they shall go because of destruction –
Mitsrayim gathers them up, Moph buries them, nettles
possess their valuables of silver, thorns are in
7 The days of punishment have come, the days of
retribution have come. Yisra’ĕl knows! The prophet
is a fool, the ‘man of the Spirit’ is mad, because
of the greatness of your crookedness, and great is
In Hoshea there is a question
asked, “What do you do for the appointed meeting
and in the day of the festival of Yahuah?”
Many people disagree but the appointed meeting is
on the 14th day of the first month, it was first
recognized from the evening in which they killed
the Passover lamb and the death messenger passed
through on that night, that was the set-apart
gathering with specific instructions as we will
20 Go, my people, enter your rooms, and
shut your doors behind you; hide yourself, as it
were, for a little while, until the displeasure is
21 For look, Yahuah is coming out of His place to
punish the inhabitants of the earth for their
crookedness. And the earth shall disclose her blood,
and no longer cover her slain.
This is what we are
admonished to do; which is specifically speaking
about Yahuah coming out of His place to punish the
inhabitants of the earth for their crookedness,
but as we have discovered already that Yahusha
does not have to appear on that same day; like the
impalement account. He was impaled on the
14th, spent the 15th in the ground, and was raised
on the 16th where He made His appearance
again. The Scripture specifically says –
“Go, enter your rooms, shut your doors behind you;
hide yourself for a little while” there is an
actual mo’ed/appointed time where we are commanded
to do this very same thing.
18 ‘In the first month, on the
fourteenth day of the month, in the evening, you
shall eat unleavened bread until the twenty-first
day of the month in the evening.
19 ‘For seven days no leaven is to be found in your
houses, for if anyone eats what is leavened, that
same being shall be cut off from the congregation of
Yisra’ĕl, whether sojourner or native of the land.
20 ‘Do not eat that which is leavened – in all your
dwellings you are to eat unleavened bread.’ ”
21 And Mosheh called for all the elders of Yisra’ĕl
and said to them, “Go out and take lambs for
yourselves according to your clans, and slaughter
the Passover lamb.
22 “And you shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it
in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the
lintel and the two doorposts with the blood that is
in the basin, and you, none of you shall go out of
the door of his house until morning.
23 “And Yahuah shall pass on to smite the Mitsrites,
and shall see the blood on the lintel and on the two
doorposts, and Yahuah shall pass over the door and
not allow the destroyer to come into your houses to
24 “And you shall guard this word as a law for you
and your sons, forever.
Deu 16:7 “And you shall roast and
eat it in the place which Yahuah your Elohim
chooses, and in the morning you shall turn and go to
Exodus 12:24 – “You shall guard
this word as a law for you and your sons, forever.”
Most of us by now recognize
that Pharaoh is a spiritual analogy of hasatan,
Ezeki’el 31:1-18. The physical pharaoh was
to be taken as a spiritual analogy. So the
land of Mitsrayim is also likened to the whole
world. At the exodus on Passover Yahuah
passed through the land and a great destruction
came upon pharaoh from Yahuah and the inhabitants
of the land suffered all the plagues and the death
of their first born. I believe it is fairly
comprehendible that we can see a great possibility
that there will be another exodus that is ushered
in by a Passover event in which Yahuah will pass
over His children when He sees the blood on the
door posts of their hearts and He will go on to
destroy the rest. Again, Passover is the
only mo’ed that contains the direct command to
stay in all night.
What do you do on Passover
eve/night? We had been taught in a local
assembly to show up for the “Seder” and sermon,
foot washing emblems, unleavened bread, and lamb
and then return home. Not anymore - the
command is very clear Ex. 12:22b “you, none of
you shall go out of the door of his house until
One more quick thought – why
is it no man knows the day nor the hour of His
return? It’s very simple – the harvest is
not based on any particular date, the harvest will
take place and the first fruits offering will be
according to Yahuah’s timing when HE determines
that the first fruit crops are mature enough to
harvest and to be offered. I personally
would suggest that one would seriously go back and
consider whether the day that no man knows is Yom
Teru’ah. It is possible - but I think we can
determine that the day of Yahuah’s vengeance is
not the exact same day as Yahusha’s return.
