A Basic Understanding Series

When do YHVH's days begin and end, and why? And by what method does YHVH reveal His secrets?
Genesis 1:5 And G-d called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the EVENING and the MORNING were the first day.
Note: Each 24 Hour Day contains ONE EVENING followed by ONE MORNING, And the EVENING Is always listed first. Read all of Genesis concerning the order of the Evenings and the Mornings.
The word "EVENING" means the period of time when the light and the dark are "EVENING" (Balancing) out. "EVENING" is actually a verb being used as a noun. The original noun was called the "Even." The "Even" is a short period of time that begins when direct visual sight of the Sun disappears (Sunset), and ends when it gets dark. It is after the "EVEN" period when THE NEXT 24 HOUR DAY BEGINS (Not Daylight, but Next 24 hour Day). Therefore, G-d's Sabbath Days always begin at sunset (never sunrise!).
Spiritual Symbolism: Our lives begin in darkness (Ignorance & Sin), and end in light (Truth & Righteousness) just the same as YHVH's Days. G-d is using This Simple (physical to Spiritual parallel - anthropomorphism) Principle to teach us ( in part ) about His Plan For Our Salvation (which we will cover in detail on this website).
Leviticus 23:32 It shall be unto you a Sabbath of Rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at "EVEN", From "EVEN unto EVEN", shall ye celebrate your SABBATH (Day). (WHICH SABBATH IS UNIMPORTANT. ALL SABBATHS FOLLOW THE SAME 24 HOUR DAILY TIME TABLE.)
Exodus 12:18 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at EVEN (Sunset), ye shall eat unleavened bread, UNTIL the one and twentieth day of the month at EVEN (Sunset).
1 Corinthians 13:12
For now we see through a glass, DARKLY; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
So how did YHVH choose to reveal His secrets to those that love Him? YHVH chose at least five types of "PARALLELS" (anthropomorphisms) in which to reveals His secrets.
- Parallel Stories called "Parables"
- Parallel relationships between His physical world and His Spiritual World.
- Parallel prophecies (dual meanings) between the ancient kingdoms on Earth, which mainly involve His first (unfaithful) wife (physical) Israel, and His new Faithful wife (Spiritual) Israel, which is made up of True Believers (The Spiritual seed of Abraham).
- Parallel Testaments: Using the First Testament (Old) to explain the Second Testament (New). And the Second Testament to Reveal the Truth of the First Testament.
- By giving His Holy Pneuma to those who love Him.
Note: There exists two parallel pneumas. The natural pneuma and the Holy Pneuma of G-d.
Mark 4:11-13 (Parables)
11 He said to them, "To you is given the mystery of the kingdom of G-d, but to those who are outside, all things are done in parables,
12 that in 'seeing they may see, and not perceive; and in hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest perhaps they should turn again, and their sins should be forgiven them.'"
13 He said to them, "Don't you understand this parable? How will you understand all of the parables?
Romans 1:19-20 (Relationships in Creation)
19 Because that which is known by G-d is revealed in them, for G-d revealed it to them.
20 For the Invisible Things of Him Since the Creation of the world Are Clearly Seen, being Perceived through the Things that are Made (G-d's Creations), even His Everlasting Power and Divinity; that They (The Self-Centered) ARE WITHOUT EXCUSE.
I love those who love me. Those who seek me diligently will find me.
7 "Ask, and it will be given you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and it will be opened to you.
8 For everyone who asks receives. He who seeks finds. To him who knocks it will be opened.
